How US gas exports to Europe are undermining Vladimir Putin

Russia's energy giant Gazprom isn't very happy with its energy competitors in the United States. The reason? Expanding U.S. liquid natural gas exports to Europe, which is good news for the U.S. and its European allies but not for Gazprom and its Kremlin masters.

Speaking on Monday, Elena Burmistrova, head of Gazprom exports, explained why the end of the coronavirus pandemic offers little cause for optimism.

There is nothing McConnell won’t do to get Barrett on the Supreme Court. If senators infected with COVID can’t be in Washington, he could change the rules about in-person voting, just for SCOTUS nominations, the same way he deployed the so-called nuclear option to end the filibuster so he could confirm Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh with fewer than 60 votes.

How hatred became all the rage in our politics

Are we Americans hating more now but enjoying it less? Let me count the ways:

A self-styled “militia” group is charged by the FBI with an alleged plot to kidnap Michigan’s Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and make her stand “trial” for forcing residents to wear masks during the COVID-19 pandemic.
