Today is a collage day of those in which it is difficult to make a cover with a sun theme. That if I politick with Marlaska, that if there is an electoral hangover in the US, Putin’s ridicule in the war in Ukraine, the Doctors’ strike in Madrid and those of Podemos gouging out their eyes.
It is what it is. So to start somewhere:
About the war in Ukraine. The psychopath’s response can be anything crazy. Zelensky is right not to trust a hair in Kherson’s retreat. But two opposing sensations assail me in this terrifying drama of war:
On the one hand the horror of reconstruction. The images of the catastrophe after the withdrawal of the savage Russian army. And I remember that, on a certain occasion, in Iraq, in the midst of the battle against Daesh, a Spanish Army officer told me: we fight to reconquer and win, the Russians crush. It is enough to see how his infernal trace remains. In this sense, how ridiculous so pathetic. What a slaughterhouse to which Putin sends his soldiers whether they are forcibly recruited or mercenaries. How ridiculous, how embarrassing! How crazy and what a coward!
About the United States, tAfter the parliamentary elections, a couple of things are confirmed.
One. There is a party. The country is divided almost 50 percent. Does it ring a bell? Neither Biden is a sunken old man, nor is Trump a god. Although he believes it. Two. In this regard: attention to Ron de Santis. Governor of Florida, real seller of these elections. And finally (David Alandete commented on it yesterday in this Flashlight) what Donald Trump said about Ron de Santis himself (also a Republican): “If he appears in the primaries, I will say things about him that not even his wife knows.”
Populists of the world, unite: Trump, Putin, former Boris Johnson, Maduro, Cristina Fernández de Kichner and here Pablo Iglesias, Errejón, Monedero… we are here to give lessons.
Back home… three scenarios for the sainete:
One. The Minister of the Interior, Fernando Grande Marlaska, what a fool, Marlaska, what a fool! That clings to the position in a painful way. Beyond what happened in Melilla, his CV and the fact that Pedro Sánchez will leave it lying around like a Kleenex as soon as the polls dictate itthat of Grande Marlaska confirms how a person can sink his name, his prestige and his condition.
I’m sincerely sorry, but it’s sad.
Two. Pedro Sánchez was at a rally in Baza (Granada), you’ll tell me. Without pain or glory but, yes, with the Falcon and the helicopter. Another confirmation, this man is more and more out of reality.
In your world. In his stratosphere of balls and advisers. Don’t trust a hair, but His Holiness lives on another planet.

And the third leg of the national politicking: those of Podemos and their underworld trying to save their asses. Between the alpha male who doesn’t know what to do to return to the Government, his subjects fluttering around, Yolanda Díaz adding, dividing, multiplying, subtracting or making equations, all this every day with a little outfit, plus those of Errejón, those of Kichi, Garzón (who is still a minister), the Colau and Monedero. Damn, what a troop!
And the mess of the doctors’ strike in Madrid continues. And in Cantabria and it is advertised in Navarra, but it is curious. They only talk about the one in Madrid. With the reasons that the doctors have (which surely have their reasons), with the drama of the medical profession due to the mistreatment they suffer, the salaries and the disorganization. All in all, we will agree that Isabel Díaz Ayuso is one more pawn in the strategy against Núñez Feijóo.
The question is: does this strike have an effect, in terms of votes, against Díaz Ayuso? I think, obviously, it doesn’t help but beyond the noise, I highly doubt this will cost him an almost absolute majority.
And my postscript: Alejandro Entrambasaguas signs in ‘El Debate’, continues the theme of the coup plotter Jordi Cuixart as if nothing had happened. Long live the revolution! but another who goes to Switzerland. He has screwed us! Jordi Cuixart deposited 100,000 euros in cash in a Swiss bank to set up the offshore company.
‘El Debate’ publishes a notarial document signed by the independent leader where he acknowledges that he deposited the funds in cash. The ‘offshore’ in Switzerland exists after collecting 5.4 million in Spanish public aid when in reality the thing is a mailbox and a rented desk. I insist: in a few days you have to pay the second installment of personal income tax.
