    Tulsi Gabbard on Tucker talking about US arming terrorists in Syria. I assume she runs as a Democrat because Hawaii is a one party state.
    I wonder if arming terrorists who torture and kill civilians is a war crime.
    There will probably a thread for this topic, I’m looking forward to it.

    There is a very good interview of Rep. Gabbard by Tucker Carlson on his show tonight. If anyone knows how to get this video, it would be worthwhile. She has sponsored a bill to stop ANYONE or ANY agency of the U.S. to sell arms or give support to groups like ISIS like what has been going on in Syria.

    9 former leaders write open letter urging Obama to commute sentences of more low-level drug offenders

    The letter was signed by nine former leaders — all members of the Swiss-based Global Commission on Drug Policy — including César Gaviria, the president of Colombia when the drug kingpin Pablo Escobar was assassinated; former Brazilian President Fernando Henrique Cardoso; and former Mexican President Ernesto Zedillo.

    The ex-leaders acknowledged that Obama during his tenure serving sentences for nonviolent drug crimes. But they pushed the president to do more before President-elect Donald Trump takes office on January 20.

    “There are still thousands more incarcerated in federal correctional facilities, serving long sentences for drug offenses that were nonviolent in nature,” the letter says.

      I’m no stock expert, but it seems to me that anything that could evaporate that quickly wasn’t real to begin with.

        Oh, it is real all righty – if it was not, Trump would not be tackling the problem – it is a BIG problem – the profits pharmaceutical companies make from the sick are astronomical – second only to overtaxation – greedy guts – they are!

    I really want to give Jeffrey Lord an award for all he has gone through on CNN this last year +

    From tonight. Best part around 7:25 when Jeffrey tries to tell Reich the election is over.

    Trump is older than Billy and W, and of course Obie. They need to respect their elders. Trump is older and wiser ,- but younger at heart. He will age gracefully in the Trump House. Unlike his Younger predecessors.

    Israeli Jets Bomb Damascus Military Airport; Syria Vows It Will Respond To “Flagrant Attack”/

    by Tyler Durden
    Jan 12, 2017 8:54/

    “Just as the Syrian proxy war showed some hopeful signs of finally dying down, the Syrian army command said on Friday that Israeli jets have bombed the Mezzeh military airport west of Damascus, accusing Tel Aviv of supporting terrorism, and warned Tel Aviv of repercussions of what it called a “flagrant” attack. Syrian state TV quoted the army as saying several rockets were fired from an area near Lake Tiberias in northern Israel just after midnight which landed in the compound of the airport, a major facility for elite Republican Guards and special forces. The airport was rocked by multiple explosions, some of which were captured by social media.”
