37 ANKARA - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan on Thursday accused the West of bombing Arabs and Turkmens in Syria while supporting Kurdish "terrorist" groups which he said were taking their place.

Moderate Syrian rebels and Kurdish forces have been fighting Islamic State insurgents holding the Syrian border town of Tel Abyad in recent days, sending thousands of people fleeing to Turkey.

Turkey is uncomfortable with gains by Kurdish YPG forces in Syria, saying they have links with the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which has fought a decades-long insurgency against the Turkish state.

Erdogan has also questioned the effectiveness of bombing raids by a US-led coalition aimed at degrading Islamic State.

44 @14

I've already contacted my representatives on multiple locations, they simply don't give a shit about what we say or want.

I recently contacted my rep and asked him these direct questions.

1) have you read the trade bill in part or full?
2) how do you plan on voting?
3) will you ensure that the citizens you represent see the full text of the bills before the final vote?

Here is his bullshit response, see how many problems you can spot.

Also that sneaky little shit Paul Ryan has his stink all over this.

Dear Mr. xxxx:

Thank you for contacting me to express your concern about current negotiations for a Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade pact. I appreciate having the benefits of your views.

As you may know, the Obama Administration is currently negotiating a free trade agreement known as the TPP with eleven other nations: New Zealand, Canada, Chile, Singapore, Brunei, Australia, Peru, Vietnam, Malaysia, Mexico and Japan.

These negotiations are ongoing and are led by our U.S. Trade Representative (USTR), Ambassador Michael Froman, who was appointed by the President.

Recently, Rep. Paul Ryan (WI), Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee has introduced H.R. 1890, the Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities and Accountability Act. This bipartisan, bicameral legislation will increase Congressional oversight and bring more transparency to the process. In addition, this bill will give the Administration over 150 negotiating objectives, from reducing currency manipulation to protecting intellectual property, which must be included in any trade deal.

Finally, if signed into law, this legislation affirms that Congress must ratify any trade agreement before it can take force. On April 23, the House Ways and Means Committee approved H.R. 1890 by a vote of 25 to 13.

Please know that I will keep your concerns in mind as Congress continues to work on these important issues.

Again, thank you for contacting me.


Sincerely,

Rodney Frelinghuysen
Member of Congress

55 Russian media is whipping up fear about a potential nuclear attack by the United States - and it's all thanks to a prank video featuring confused people in San Diego.

The video at the center of the nuclear fear-mongering features Americans allegedly signing a petition to annihilate Russia. Mark Dice, a conspiracy theorist and activist, produced the video. It shows him approaching passers-by in San Diego, asking them to support a plan by President Obama to nuke Russia in order to keep America the world's leading superpower….

Here's the video:

Dice meets with the usual pathetic sheep who probably don't even know what "pre-emptive" means if they were even listening to him at all.

91 The American Revolution was started for shit not even half as bad as this. Posted by: J.J. Sefton at June 11, 2015 08:06 AM

Let me first say I sincerely wish long, healthy lives for Choom Boy and every member of Congress.

Then let me say I fervently hope that each of them will spend the remainder of said long, healthy lives in a prison cell. Preferably in some shithole in a desert, far away from any decent citizens.

That's what traitors deserve.

Apparently, the only recourse we Americans have is to a) do something stupid, b) sit back and take it, or c) listen to Our Betters on the "conservative" babbleverse complain and feel all righteous. Or ignore it altogether and talk about Shrillery, "rape" and comedy.

In other words, we're screwed. Again. Perhaps worse than we were by ChoomCare.

Michael Flynn, who led the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency until last August, told a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee on Wednesday that trusting Iran's mullahs to abandon their nuclear ambitions is "wishful thinking." "Iran has every intention to build a nuclear weapon," he argued. "It is clear that the nuclear deal is not a permanent fix but merely a placeholder."

Flynn insisted: "The notion of 'snap back' sanctions is fiction. The Iranian regime is already more economically stable than it was in November of 2013." He added that international inspectors are slated to only have "'managed access' to nuclear facilities, and only with significant prior notification."

204 I think my problem with Hannity is everything is so over-dramatic. I loved Hannity and Colmes. And, his personality worked because they would go back and forth, attacking and defending.

His personality has carried over to his solo show, but it just feels weird with him being so combative and defensive, with no one there to be that way with, and to me, it just doesn't work. And, if he had guests on like O'Reilly does, people with differing view points, it would work a little better.

He does to a small degree, but for the most part, his guests are people with his exact same ideology and political frame of mind, and his questions are always leading, prodding, and "This is my opinion...tell me how right I am?"

218 TPP is another Event towards the world war that is brewing.

Look towards the Phillipines. China is building out there, claiming territory and projecting power right smack in the middle of major trade routes that extend from the middle east to the west coast of the USA. If they can capture the South China sea they can strangle that trade and cut off Japan altogether, who is one of their major regional rivals and the only one who can stop them, regionally speaking.

TPP, I believe, is an effort to counter that without projecting military power, or to set the table for the projection of military power in the region on a cooperative basis.

Japan and the USA need to have ASW assets in the Phillipines ASAP. I don't think we'll do that, though.

DEAR ABBY: Two years ago, I came out as male-to-female transgender.
My wife has come around since then, and our second child will be born
before I start my transition.

She has decided to stay with me, but occasionally she
tells me she isn't sure if she can be married to a woman. On the other
hand, she says she doesn't want to have to share custody of our
children.

I have urged her to talk to a therapist, because she
gets a few free sessions from her job. Because she doesn't like people
knowing about her problems, she steadfastly refuses. I'm not sure what
else to do. I won't make her stay if she can't handle it, but I refuse
to tell her I'll give her full custody. -- LIVING MY TRUTH IN THE EAST



I don't think the wife is the one who need therapy.

What you heard of "no taxation w/o representation" was actually much worse. Farmers and colonists had to pay those British taxes in gold which was in extreme short supply in the colonies where barter or paper money was most often used. So when a farmer could not come up with gold to pay his taxes his land would be confiscated and sold act auction, most often to wealthy merchants.

I can only take that Hannity SOB in small doses. I gave up on the TV show a LONG time ago. Every so often I'll tune into the radio show but then get reminded why listening to him is a chore.

He used to have Donald Trump on all the time and it was just such a circle jerk "hey check me out I'm friends with The Donald!" crapfest. And when a gun issue comes up he has to talk about how he's a "marksman." Whatever, pal.

His show is all about how awesome he is, but he doesn't have the charm or radio presence to pull it off. Limbaugh makes that kind of schtick work. Hannity just comes across as a douche.

AND HE MISUSES THE WORD "LITERALLY" ALL THE DAMN TIME.

That was bad enough to provoke a response, Vic.

From what I've read (well, skimmed, as the "leaked" provisions of the new trade nonsense are written in the best legislative-ese and are therefore unreadable) the "trade partnership" Choom Boy is promoting will only remove key provisions of our sovereignty, invalidate some of our laws, tip the playing field in favor of his third-world shithole BFFs, decimate American business, make things easier for multinational criminals and open the borders wider.

Other than that, it seems relatively harmless.

We won't have to pay our taxes in gold. Yet, anyway.

264 Ideologically, I'm usually with Hannity. Problem is he won't shut his yap long enough to let a guest regurgitate his point. Hannity's setup questions are so long that the guest only needs to say, "Yes, Sean."

And then he brings on imbeciles just to have an opposing POV present to yell at. This "Fair And Balanced" crap has worn out its welcome. A) FOX doesn't allow enough time for legitimate contrarians to get a decent enough word in edgewise, and B) too many of the contrarians are genuine ignoramuses who should not have a platform to voice a POV that represents 0.000001% of the population.

FOXNews is not a news outlet. It's a Pavlovian outrage emotion machine.

And that's the value of the Internet. I can now skip FOX too.

so the Today Show

they have this "thing" in associate with Dateline

they tak teenagers and put them in fake situations with actors, and are filmed and their parents show how their children react


so this is the set up

a boy they just met took a picture of a girl they just met when she was changing clothes, without the girls knowledge

the test is to see what the other girls, and they were all girls, do

they tell him to erase the picture

then they find an excuse to talk to the girl privately and come up with a ruse for her to take the guys phone and erase the picture herself

next time, they have a different set up

in it, an obviously impaired or intoxicated girl will appear be "taken advantage of" by a boy or group of boys

this is sick

so the set up is

278 I'm a kind-of expert on big bands. When my mom was an elevator operator at the Commodore, she knew Les Brown pretty well. She wouldn't say how well.

Laurie Johnson (that's a man, baby) did the original Avengers theme, and is still alive, aged 97 or so. Johnny Knorr played with Artie Shaw, then led his own big band for 50 years, playing regionals like the Grand Hotel Mackinac. He lived to 90, led the band right to the end. The band will shut down after this season, having outlived the bandleader by five years. They outlasted the 555th ANG band, and with no federal budget either.

I saw to it that my kid became a major Maynard Ferguson fan. That guy was an absolute killer -- still "had it" at age 75. And then, he died. The version of "Taps" that was scored for his funeral: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GkmeiDsxXRk

Meaning, no genders on forms, on birth certificates. Sections not marked at department stores. Not sure what it will do with public restrooms. And so on and so forth.

He's fer it.

I've removed him from top tier and quit sending in donations to his campaign. Not just because of this issue but because of his immigration policy which seems "tough" but is actually expansive once the border is "secure."

Immigration policy is my line in the sand. Amnesty, border and internal non-enforcement, and expansion of H1-B and legal immigration are no go zones for me. Support any of that and you simply cannot get my support or vote.

But I digress.

Yeah, that's my hope, too. And paradoxically here, that's the benefit of divided government. There's the slim chance that politics will keep both sides in opposition so that the worst stuff doesn't pass.

Alas, we're in an age where it's really a single party system of Statists. Maybe, in this case, half the crowd that doesn't like their oxes being gored can ward off the butchers.

=========

This leads me to one of my head-shaking moments. Dems are idiots when it comes to immigration policy. Do they understand how immigrants - illegal as well as the legal type - who have been in this country more than three years feel about the newcomers hopping over the border? They are actually trending pro-control, because after practically taking over the craft trades (at least in NC), their biggest labor competition are their fellow travellers.

Posted by: mrp at June 11, 2015 09:21 AM (JBggj)

290 I know in my rural area, there has been an influx of illegal immigrants from Haiti, actually taking away jobs from the Hispanics.

The problem is the Haitians have brought TB with them from their travels, and there has been a (contained) outbreak of TB. Now, these people keep mostly to themselves. But, the kids use our public schools and public school transportation. At this point, it is a health and safety issue.

291 mrp: "Do they understand how immigrants - illegal as well as the legal type - who have been in this country more than three years feel about the newcomers hopping over the border?"

So they don't like losing jobs and wages either along with subsidizing illegals? Huh. Go figure.

Lawless nations are tishholes. Who in their right mind wants to live in one... and yet we are importing by the millions entire cultures that will bring such inherited belief systems (along with countless other issues) and expecting different results with the passage of time.

"America" is not inevitable in perpetuity. We are watching its destruction and a government that is hell bent on enabling that.

What would things have been like if every security operative,
when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain
whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family?
Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad,
when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not
simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of
the downstairs and at every step on the staircase, but had understood
they had nothing to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall
as ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or
whatever else was at hand? After all, you knew ahead of time that
those bluecaps were out at night for no good purpose. And you could
be sure ahead of time that you'd be cracking the skull of a
cutthroat.
