      Do you remember what you never liked about Sam Donaldson?
      Now you can add a really bad gray rug. Oh yeah, and he defends Acosta. It’s true, water does seek its own level.

      People can easily find out about Sam Donaldson by Googling “World’s Worst Toupee.”

      The Justice Department is preparing to prosecute WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and is increasingly optimistic it will be able to get him into a U.S. courtroom, according to people in Washington familiar with the matter.

      yet the clintons walk away free.

      I hope Pelosi wins just so she can take her revenge on these ingrates. The Dems would not be nearly as powerful w/o her. AND…everybody is up to their back teeth with the racism crap. Kamala Harris equating ICE to the KKK. How many ICE people are Hispanic? That should go over well.

      Kirsten Gillibrand thinks she’s going to run? Wait till Kamala hits her with the “white woman benefiting from the racist patriarchy’ clue bat.

      Good morning. The Democrat Party is consumed with tribalism. It has morphed into competing victims groups, and they see everything as a zero sum game. If you get a raise at work, somehow you are causing starvation for some poor family of color or something.
      They now have one more Muslim in Congress, a Somali Muslima from Minneapolis complete with head scarf.
      How many more are needed before the demands are for footpaths, prayer rooms , and timeouts to go supplicste to Allah?

      You’re right, two more. The Minneapolis Somali Muslims are bad news with serious attitude.
      They are all over the airport and working at hotels.
      On one trip the Muslim chick at the car rental desk got really snarky while informing me that they had NO cars.
      I got ahold of a supervisor and I was out of there in 10 minutes with the car class that I reserved.
      He was aware that he had a serious problem.
      But hey, they clean planes too. what could go wrong?

      Yeah, they covered that up. Minneapolis / St Paul have festivals all summer, many with a Sandanvian theme.
      Full loving Somali yoots like to hang out at the entrances harassing, intimidating and often attacking festival goers.
      The city administrations and cooperating media under report or just fail to report. The Minneapolis Star is a rag.

      Hey dorian, you’ll like this. Volcano stuff.

      A mysterious fog plunged Europe, the Middle East, and parts of Asia into darkness, day and night—for 18 months. “For the sun gave forth its light without brightness, like the moon, during the whole year,” wrote Byzantine historian Procopius. Temperatures in the summer of 536 fell 1.5°C to 2.5°C, initiating the coldest decade in the past 2300 years. Snow fell that summer in China; crops failed; people starved. The Irish chronicles record “a failure of bread from the years 536–539.” Then, in 541, bubonic plague struck the Roman port of Pelusium, in Egypt. What came to be called the Plague of Justinian spread rapidly, wiping out one-third to one-half of the population of the eastern Roman Empire and hastening its collapse, McCormick says.

      They’re not sure if it was a volcano in Iceland or North America, but it was definitely a volcano. The ice core samples are unambiguous.

      Report: State Dept. says Hezbollah flooding Peru, Bolivia with terrorist assets

      In written testimony prepared for House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Terrorism hearing Wednesday, the State Department’s top counter-terrorism official Nathan Sales warned that Hezbollah is deploying “large caches of military equipment and explosives” in Bolivia, as well as delivering some to jihadists currently deployed in Peru.

      https://thenationalsentinel.com/2018/11/15/report-state-dept-says-hezbollah-flooding-peru-bolivia-with-terrorist-assets/

      On June 30, German authorities arrested an Iranian official under diplomatic cover for his role in a terrorist plot to bomb a political rally near Paris, France. Authorities in Belgium and France also made arrests in connection with the plot. Other Iranian and Hizballah operatives have been arrested in the past several years in Europe, Africa, South America, Asia, and the United States – demonstrating the global reach of these networks.

      But Germany is still trying to find a way around U.S. sanctions to cut deals with Iran. Follow the money

      Judge has sided with Acosta and restored his access to the White House. I have not seen the order, so I don’t know if it’s restored his HARD pass or if he is just going to be allowed to apply for a soft pass every day.

      This is only PENDING trial. Not an unusual result, actually. However, I recommend Acosta be allowed back in and simply NEVER be called upon.


    29. eaglesoars
      31 | November 16, 2018 10:41 am

      @ The Barbarian:

      I believe his access to a soft pass was never pulled so this probably restores the hard pass


    30. 32 | November 16, 2018 10:45 am

      @ eaglesoars:

      Acosta is preening about his “victory.”
      Like I said, don’t call on him. Call on all other CNN reporters.

      He said he prosecuted cases where the guns came from Nevada or Arizona, where the gun laws are weaker. If the laws are ‘federalized’ “we’ll all be safer”

      The miniature kidneys, which were made using test tubes in a laboratory, did not behave in the way they were expected to.

      Instead of growing into different kinds of kidney cells, they in fact formed brain and muscle cells.


    62. rain of lead
      64 | November 17, 2018 8:06 am

      experts saying the fact they behaved in this way indicates the technique used to grow them from stem cells are actually creating other cells.
