      Apologies for yesterday – something must have been happening at Travis AFB because our Wifi was completely wiped out (I was away on Saturday). Not just ours – the folks across the street who have a completely different wifi provider didn’t have it either.

      It’s been my experience that when Travis is in the the middle of something important, wifi gets jammed all over the place.

      “How much blood-soaked history must the Left leave in its wake for us to understand? This is a war and the stakes are real, material, physical. They want us supplicating, enslaved or dead. They want our guns, our faith, our freedoms. Everything. They despise us and despise our country.”

      As I have stated strongly before, and just to reiterate, if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (I’ve done before!). They must, with Europe and others, watch over…..the captured ISIS fighters and families. The U.S. has done far more than anyone could have ever expected, including the capture of 100% of the ISIS Caliphate. It is time now for others in the region, some of great wealth, to protect their own territory. THE USA IS GREAT!

      He’d better be right. Even Israel is nervous.

      The U.S.’s decision to pull troops back is a particularly worrying development for Israel, as it confronts a robust Iranian presence on its border with Syria. Israeli officials have expressed concern about Iran’s ability to transport advanced weapons from Iran through Iraq and Syria to Hezbollah in Lebanon. Israel has been carrying out strikes to rollback Iranian entrenchment in the region.

      “I prefer that American troops will be in the area, because they will influence it and they are our best allies,” said Jacob Nagel, head of Israel’s National Security Council from 2016 to 2017 and a fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. “If you want to confront Iran in Syria, you have to be there.”

      wow cali really has become a 3rd world nation

      An estimated 600,000 PG&E customers — including some 257,000 in the Bay Area — may be forced to endure power shutdowns starting early Wednesday amid a forbidding outlook for severe fire danger in the form of high winds.

      Preemptive outages loom across a “vast” swath of Northern and Central California this week, PG&E warned, adding that a “strong and dry wind event” forecast for midweek could prompt the utility to shut down power in as many as 30 counties in an effort to stave off wildfire risk.

      Is her name even Elizabeth Warren? First, her ‘native american’ story falls apart, then the ‘fired for pregnancy’ story is proven false and now this

      Elizabeth Warren’s story of racist grandparents disputed by Cherokee genealogist

      The post was headlined, “Did Warren invent the story of racist grandparents?”

      After Ms. Warren said in the Globe that her mother told her “nobody came to her wedding at all,” Ms. Barnes looked it up and found that her mother’s friend witnessed the ceremony, which was performed by a prominent Methodist clergyman, not a justice of the peace.

      “This marriage does not look like an elopement. It looks very much like a Depression-era marriage ceremony instead,” said Ms. Barnes in an August 2012 post. “Sometimes people didn’t have a lot of money to spend on a wedding so they just obtained their license, got married and then went back home.”

      She also found a detailed wedding announcement posted in the local newspaper in Wetumka, Oklahoma.

      “If Ms. Warren’s parents eloped due to her mother being ‘Cherokee and Delaware’ and it was such a disgrace, why did they rush back to Wetumka the same day they were married and proudly announce it to everyone?” asked Ms. Barnes. “If there was shame associated with the marriage and it caused so many problems, why was it happily announced in the local paper?”

      Oh, look what’s leaked from Atkinson’s testimony.

      Now, however, there is word of more evidence of possible bias on the whistleblower’s part. Under questioning from Republicans during last Friday’s impeachment inquiry interview with Atkinson, the inspector general revealed that the whistleblower’s possible bias was not that he was simply a registered Democrat. It was that he had a significant tie to one of the Democratic presidential candidates currently vying to challenge President Trump in next year’s election.

      “The IG said [the whistleblower] worked or had some type of professional relationship with one of the Democratic candidates,” said one person with knowledge of what was said.

      “The IG said the whistleblower had a professional relationship with one of the 2020 candidates,” said another person with knowledge of what was said.

      “It’s kind of disconcerting now to be investigated for, you know, having done our duty and done what we were told to do by the president,” Clapper added.

      The letter was sent by Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Mike Lee (R-UT), Ted Cruz (R-TX), John Cornyn (R-TX), Mike Crapo (R-ID), Thom Tillis (R-NC), John Kennedy (R-LA) and Marsha Blackburn (R-TN).

      Oh, yeah, I’d forgotten about this. Obama gave the ChiComms control of a port in Long Beach.

      Trump just stomped on it.


      Under a long-term deal sealed by the Obama administration, a Chinese Communist company was set to control the second-busiest container port in the United States. In an unreported Trump administration victory, the Communists are out after a drawn-out national security review forced a unit of China-based COSCO Shipping Holdings Co. (Orient Overseas Container Line—OOCL) to sell the cherished container terminal business, which handles among the largest freight of imports into the U.S.

      It all started with a 40-year container terminal lease between the Port of Long Beach in southern California and Hong Kong. The Obama administration proudly signed the agreement in 2012 giving China control of America’s second-largest container port behind the nearby Port of Los Angeles. One of the Trump administration’s first big moves was to get the Communists out of the Port of Long Beach. After a national security review and federal intervention, the Long Beach terminal business, which handles millions of containers annually, is finally being sold to an Australian company called Macquarie Infrastructure Partners. That essentially kills China’s decades-long contract with the Obama administration.

      I’d keep an eye on it tho, Australia is infested with the thugs.

      A Virginia judge ruled last week that the Republican lawmaker’s lawsuit against Twitter could proceed to trial in Virginia, meaning the company may finally be forced to disclose evidence of bias against conservative users.

      Marshall took the arguments under consideration and sought to determine whether the facts supported keeping the case in Virginia. At one point, he asked Twitter to provide to him under seal information on the users managing the anonymous accounts and their locations, the number of Twitter users in Virginia, and the amount of revenue earned by the company in the state.

      Rather than comply with the court order, Twitter gave the judge the middle finger and refused to provide the information demanded by the court. The judge responded by allowing the trial against Twitter to proceed in Virginia, a move that could wreak havoc not just on Twitter’s bottom line going forward, but also its entire business model. As a result of Marshall’s order, the case will now proceed to trial, and Twitter will be subject to full-blown discovery by Nunes and his legal team.

      And they made this announcement, by the way, while people in the Bay Area were at work. They had a detailed map of the shutdown zones, but their website crashed because they “didn’t anticipate” that the traffic would be that high. You have made an announcement that is impacting 1.6 million households in California, and you didn’t “anticipate” that people would be coming to your website? Geez Looeez. Someone took to their Twitter account and said – hey idiots, post the maps by county on Twitter.

      Where I live, there was a swatch of municipal area that would not suffer a shutdown. A small swatch. And I happily live in it. I sent the Football Savant Offspring out for water, ice and some soft drinks.

      It had been “hinted” as a possibility. They made the announcement that it would definitely happen at about 10:00 a.m. yesterday, and added about seven or eight Bay Area counties to the mix, including mine.

      I finally got around to watching last week’s episode of “How to Get Away With Murder” last night (it went downhill in the past season, so it’s no longer Friday morning “must see TV” while I’m getting ready for work). So now they are going after the evil that is ICE and the detention centers.

      It makes me sad, because I do love Viola Davis, but I deleted it from the DVR.

      Actually I have power, so we’re good. The “wind event” that sparked this is supposed to subside Thursday afternoon, and PG&E is going to do some inspections of the power lines (which accounts for the other two days). There seems to be most concern about the lines in the populated areas near the Sierra foothills.

      The State of California was really happy to point the finger as soon as possible at PG&E, but looked around confused when it was also pointed out their horrible land management and kow-towing to the Sierra Club had a lot to do with giving that fire something to burn.

      Oh noes!

      United Nations — The United Nations is running a deficit of $230 million, Secretary General Antonio Guterres said on Monday, and may run out of money by the end of October. In a letter intended for the 37,000 employees at the UN secretariat and obtained by CBS News’ Pamela Falk, Guterres said unspecified “additional stop-gap measures” would have to be taken to ensure salaries and entitlements are paid.

      “Member States have paid only 70 percent of the total amount needed for our regular budget operations in 2019. This translates into a cash shortage of $230 million at the end of September. We run the risk of depleting our backup liquidity reserves by the end of the month,” he wrote.

      To cut costs, Guterres mentioned postponing conferences and meetings and reducing services, while also restricting official travel to only essential activities and taking measures to save energy.

      @ coldwarrior:

      One element of that election that Clinton has not considered is that there was indeed some hesitation on voting for Trump by a lot of conservatives that weren’t all that convinced he’d follow through. I know that in California, since the state was not really in play, MANY people didn’t vote for Trump for that reason. THIS time, however, since the Democrats make so much of that popular vote, they WILL be pulling the trigger for Trump. I know of at least 20 people in my sphere that said they didn’t vote for President in 2016 but will be voting for Trump in 2020. I think a lot of moderates will be doing that as well, especially since they’re seeing first hand through Gavin Newsom what a pro-illegal President will do.

      I saw it and it was excellent. I take exception to the characterization as ‘warmongers’ people who are sincerely concerned about what happens to the SDF/YPG. PKK affiliates or no, they did fight with us and were the tip of the spear.

      If nothing else, this illuminates the false romanticism of war. If people think this is terrible – and it is – they should learn what happened – or was done – to Poland after WWII. Talk about shafted by your allies.

    104. eaglesoars
      117 | October 9, 2019 7:22 pm

      And here is excellent background on how and we we became allied with SDF/YPG/PKK

      The American relationship with the YPG was a direct outgrowth of the greatest blunder of the Obama administration: the effort to reach a strategic accommodation with Iran.

      It all began in 2014 with the siege of Kobani, a Kurdish town in Northeast Syria that was surrounded by ISIS fighters. Because the plight of the town was well-reported in the American media, Obama came under political pressure to intervene militarily to break the siege.

      Until then, however, he had strenuously avoided involvement in the Syrian civil war. To be sure, he sought to avoid a quagmire, but he also was eager to avoid alienating the Iranians and the Russians.

      By now, the negotiations that would lead to the Iran nuclear deal were underway. But Damascus was the close ally of both Russia and Iran, so any American intervention in Syria risked upsetting the new relationship that Obama was attempting to forge with Moscow and Tehran.

      This factor is the hidden key to understanding why Team Obama gravitated to the YPG to solve its problems. The group had a long history of cordial ­relations with the Russians and the Iranians, and, best of all, it had no intention to topple the Assad regime. Every other group that Obama might have used to defeat ISIS had an anti-Assad agend

      I suspect that the shirt-shredding shrieking about how this will ‘upset the balance in the region’ will settle down just as soon as the YPG come to their senses and make a deal with Damascus. Or get annihilated. Their choice.

      As Watchdog Probes the DoJ, Justice Delayed Looks Like Toughness Denied

      Senators sent a letter formally requesting the inquiry to Justice Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz on Feb. 28, 2018. He is only now closing his probe of the critical matter and preparing a final report for the Senate.

      Former inspectors general and department insiders say the long delay runs afoul of federal statutes mandating rapid turnaround of investigations of such “serious” matters. They complain Horowitz has a habit of “dragging out” his investigations and final reports, which has not kept with the spirit of regulations governing the tempo of IG action. These rules, they say, require Horowitz to report his findings “expeditiously.”

      The rules also require IGs to report to Congress any “serious or flagrant abuses” uncovered “within seven calendar days” of discovering them.

      Former inspectors general and FBI and other department insiders say the long delays in Horowitz’s reports have allowed FBI Director Christopher Wray and other officials to, in turn, delay cooperation with investigative committees on the Hill.

      Wray has argued he is limited in what he can testify about regarding the myriad problems at the FBI – and what action he can take internally – until the IG’s findings are released.

      So they knew about Horowitz’s habits before he was appointed and appointed him in spite of – or because of – them.

      This whole charade reminds me of that stupid Q cult on twitter. TRUST THE PLAN. You never are told what the plan is but not to worry, it’s all being taken care of. It blew up when Sessions was finally exposed as exactly the incompetent jackass he appeared to be and not some good guy in disguise who was going to pop up at the last minute yelling GOTCHA! The last nail got hammered with last week’s exposure of Rosenstein as the sniveling worm he appeared to be and not some SEKRET accomplice of the good guys who self-planted inside the enemy camp in order to defend peace, justice and The American Way.
