I was off duty for most of last week, and coincidentally so was my wife. Unfortunately, while we enjoyed our time together the news-cycle didn't stop.
So here's a run-down of the top stories that broke during 2017's opening week.
First, US intelligence agencies concluded the Bare-Chested Czar ordered in "interference campaign" to help the Boorish Billionaire defeat the Corrupt Queen. Later, they presented their findings to Congress. Despite Leftists' hue & cry over "Russian Hacking!" there was no evidence of any votes being changed during the election. But even ABC's Jon Karl pointed out why didn't Obama freak out when China hacked the US Office of Personnel Management?

The week took a horrific turn when four thugs were arrested for the kidnapping and torture of mentally disabled man--and posting their torture porn on Facebook. After some hemming & hawing over the video, Windy City's Finest finally ruled the torture of the Trump supporter to be a hate crime.

Unfortunately, this was Evil's warm-up routine.
On Friday (6 January), 5 people were killed and another 8 wounded when Estaban Santiago opened fire on fellow travelers in the Baggage Claim Area of Fort Lauderdale's Airport.

Normally, I don't like it when officials and the media go wishy-washy on terrorism (or hypocritical on hate crimes), but it does sound like Santiago had issues before he went on his killing spree.
Even so, Mark Steyn summed it all up with his article on Identity Politics and Dehumanization.
While Barry O's days in the Oval Office are numbered, I'm afraid there will be plenty of WTFO news in the year(s) ahead.
