      Not reading but knew it was coming. Gateway Pundit had an article featuring him, too, last night. I went on his website also last night. Half religious but half conspiracy, naming Cherokee Indians for being part of the problem. ???

        Probably pissed at the Cherokee for denying Cherokee w/ black ancestry inclusion into the tribe. But who knows, some people just like to keep life exciting by inventing things whole cloth.

        Anyway, he certainly likes Trump and always looks happy. I’ll take this guy any day over the father of the Orlando Night Club Murderer, a Hillary fan.

          Could be. The Cherokee tribe of Oklahoma are real dicks about who they let in. If you don't have an ancestor on the Dawes roll, you ain't getting in no matter what. They're vindictive to Cherokee who managed not to get removed to Oklahoma.

          And yeah, that website the guy promotes is some crazy shit, something about the Cherokee being babylonians and are the Klan and secretly run the Democratic party. It's part of some Yohwee Ben Yohwee or something like that church. They've been around awhile now, I remember seeing something about them on 60 Minutes back in the 80's.

      She’s just an idiot. She says “These guys (meaning the white supremacists) showed up with semi-automatic weapons.
      Not true. As far as I know not a single one of the white supremacists had a firearm of any kind. The people she is referring to is the Pennsylvania Lightfoot Militia, who were there at the request of a local Virginia militia to help and lead. They know the laws and obey the laws and coordinate with local police. They are associated with the Oath Keepers, and like them work at a lot of these large public events where trouble is likely.

      This just shows what “fake news” CNN really is. This airhead didn’t even bother to find out who the guys with the weapons were. All it takes is a simple google search, there are stories about them all over the internet.

      It will be interesting to hear what the spooks think of this video. I haven’t seen the video, it’s been pulled off every site. I kinda doubt he is really in Raqqah, he appears too clean and well fed.

      Coalition jets hit 81 ISIS positions today. There’s no fresh water and ISIS is limited to 40% of the city. The SDF report they killed 41 ISIS. Everyday is the same, swarm of car bombs then everybody settles down to shooting.

      RT says coalition jets targeted children playing in the street. Yeah, sure every mother sends her kids out to play in a war zone.

      We hit a mosque on Monday, the before pictures clearly showed that ISIS had placed a six foot wall of sandbags around the entire building. It WAS a mosque but ISIS wasn’t praying there.

      The human rights folks say somewhere between 700 and 1,000 civilians have been killed since the airstrikes began. Who knows if it’s true, it’s Syria, if somebody dies of the gout it will be our fault.

    So Hillary writes another Why I Lost book and calls Trump a Creep because he stood close to her during the debates….like she was frightened?

    That is why she lost and should have lost….easily intimidated and makes excuses for her lack of courage and fortitude…non Presidential material

    Perhaps Hillary forgot about her husband’s Vice President, Al Gore, when he ran against George Bush for President….and old AL did the crowding thing to Bush….and it did not bother Bush at all.

    Hillary needs to shut up and go bake cookies….she has always been a loser and will never be otherwise.

    There’s part of the new narrative, more & more of these pundits will look to distance from the D brand, and “winter is coming,” just like it was “the summer is the silly season.”

      Former Aide to Chuck Schumer
      Improv Comic
      Specialty National Politics
      ACCORDING TO FOX

      “winter is coming” is the huge, trending, catchphrase on Game of Thrones — HUGE, right now — In fact the season finale is Sunday night.

      Not to totally geek out – but the meaning behind it —
      The meaning behind these words is one of warning and constant vigilance. It is an expression that means one should always be prepared to fight the great war.

      Google it – and you will find the reference all over the internet.

We all knew this was coming – this is their excuse to pile it all into one big Omnibus bill/package. I am guessing this is why Trump signaled last night to shut down the Govt.

    Freeman: “ Oh. Oh, why not? Do you want one?”

    Wallace: “No. No.”

    Freeman: “I don’t either. I don’t want a Black History Month. Black history is American history.”

    Wallace: “How are we going to get rid of racism and ….”

    Freeman: “Stop talking about it. I’m going to stop calling you a white man, and I’m going to ask you to stop calling me a black man. I know you as Mike Wallace. You know me as Morgan Freeman. You want to say, `Well, I know this white guy named Mike Wallace.’ You know what I’m saying?”

    • It’s almost impossible to watch, and even more ridiculous to accept the talk about defending Antifa because the neo-nazi’s are more disgusting.

      Start with the basics. Is violence in any form ever justified? Is it possible that any large group of people deserves to be attacked in America by any means available?

      Now, if that is the new normal, we are forever hopelessly lost as a nation. To split hairs on this is insane. I have the right to attack someone because I’m less egregious then you?
      I may just be at the bottom of the pile of garbage, but you are below me in that pile so I can attack you without consequences?

      I’ll fall back on two simple questions. Is being a Neo-nazi illegal in America? Is it against any existing laws to be a member?
      If the answer to both of those questions is yes, then no one has the right to attack you for being one.
      Actually, if the answer is no, again no one has the right to beat the snot out of you.

      And if you have to disgustingly bad worthless groups of garbage, neither has the right to take the moral high ground and take the law into their own hands.

    This just appears to be too many for coincidence, or Russians have bad genes.

    “Eight months after the Russian ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Karlov, was shot dead in broad daylight, on Wednesday yet another Russian ambassador has died. According to Russian news agency RIA Novosti, the Ambassador of the Russian Federation to the Republic of Sudan, Mirgayas M. Shirinskiy, was found dead in his home in Khartoum Wednesday.”

    “The death of Shirinskiy marks the 9th Russian diplomat who has died in the past year. Here is a list of the more prominent recently deceased Russian diplomats:

    Sergei Krivov, 63, a Russian diplomat at the Russian Consulate in New York was found dead on November 8. Krivov served as duty commander involved with security affairs, according to Russian news reports
    Russia’s Ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Karlov — assassinated by a police officer at a photo exhibit in Ankara on December 19.
    On the same day, another diplomat, Peter Polshikov, was shot dead in his Moscow apartment. The gun was found under the bathroom sink but the circumstances of the death were under investigation. Polshikov served as a senior figure in the Latin American department of the Foreign Ministry.
    Russia’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Vitaly Churkin, died in New York in May. Churkin was rushed to the hospital from his office at Russia’s UN mission. Initial reports said he suffered a heart attack, and the medical examiner is investigating the death, according to CBS.
    Russia’s Ambassador to India, Alexander Kadakin, died after a “brief illness January 27, which The Hindu said he had been suffering from for a few weeks.
    Russia’s Consul in Athens, Greece, Andrei Malanin, was found dead in his apartment January 9. A Greek police official said there was “no evidence of a break-in.” But Malanin lived on a heavily guarded street. The cause of death needed further investigation, per an AFP report. Malanin served during a time of easing relations between Greece and Russia when Greece was increasingly critiqued by the EU and NATO.
    Ex-KGB chief Oleg Erovinkin, who was suspected of helping draft the Trump dossier, was found dead in the back of his car December 26, according to The Telegraph. Erovinkin also was an aide to former deputy prime minister Igor Sechin, who now heads up state-owned Rosneft.
    The top official of Russia’s space agency, 56-year-old Vladimir Evdokimov, was found dead in his prison cell (where he was being questioned on charges of embezzlement). Investigators found two stab wounds on Evdokimov’s body, but no determination had been made of whether they were self-inflicted.”

I have fought the battle too many times to keep my log-in automatic, to be able to Like a comment, and to be able to comment myself. There seems no rhyme or reason as to why suddenly I am barred, then suddenly I have access again, and I have read every single thing in the right hand column and on the heading menu to see what I might be doing wrong and how to FIX it. I’ve also encouraged friends and acquaintances to come here and they too get sick of the hurdles that must be jumped to be able to Like and Comment and Reply. Is it too much to expect that the routine and/or rules would be posted? I see people asking often, why it is they are not allowed to Like a comment. Who decides? Or WHAT behavior decides?

      When I use Opera, I a able to access everything and all is fine. My email and screen name stay auto filled in after the first time I type it even if I go to different threads and come back or a different web site and come back.

      When I am on iPad stays auto filled and accessible always. Just my experience. Safari is VERY hard but I don’t usually use it anyway any more.

      Another issue, iPad does get overwhelmed on long threads and keeps auto reloading. That doesn’t ever happen on Opera and the desk top.

      Besides the browser, what also makes a difference for me is:
      1) if I keep cookies/junk cleaned off my computer.
      2) WordPress in my opinion is challenging and the way you sign in will change things. I used to just sign in here, but then for awhile I couldn’t sign out. Then I couldn’t like. It’s just Worpress. Meanwhile, someone here recommended signing into WordPress directly (not signing in here). Hopefully someone can give you the link. It’s wordpress.com/read/feeds and then some set of numbers (I think) for the treehouse, or maybe you can pick from a list. I never tried that method.
      3) Someone here recommended signing in from disqus.com. Once I did that, it cleared up a lot of problems I was having here.

      I think you just need to try a few things. But the two thing that will be easy to try are use another browser and make sure all your cookies are cleaned out.

      I don’t get any ads or popups. Only complaint is when I do post the page jumps up and down like it was on a runaway elevator. I have to wait until it stops and all the crap loaded (watch it in the bottom left corner of the browser) before I can even scroll. I guess it could be worse.

      Sauce for the Gander

      Sigmar Gabriel is a German politician from the SPD (Social Democrats). He serves as Minister for Foreign Affairs and Vice Chancellor in the current coalition government.

      Mr. Gabriel’s recent remarks warning the Turks to stop meddling in German politics have resulted in Turkish-instigated harassment and threats against his wife’s dental practice. Social Democrats are used to instigating harassment and threats against “right-extremists”, but do not expect the same kind of treatment themselves. Now Sigmar Gabriel is unhappy and afraid, and feeling very sorry for himself.

    Anti illegal immigration march begins Quebec City

    Published on Aug 21, 2017
    This is the second of a series of videos to show what happened in Quebec City, when a large group of thuggish antifa attacked a clearly reasonable group of Canadian and Quebec patriots who were protesting the Trudeau-Obama plan to flood North America with 3rd world migrants. The entire sequence should be available at my website tomorrow at some point. The first in the series will be uploaded this evening.

    Using the SPLC and Private Corporations to Crack Down on “Hate”

    We’ve reported numerous times in the past on the campaign by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) targeting “hate” groups in the USA, with an eye towards shutting them down. Even though the SPLC is a private organization, and absolutely opaque in its methodology, it is widely cited in the media and used by various governmental agencies at both federal and state levels.

    The SPLC’s list of hate groups was prominently featured by CNN after the violence in Charlottesville, and various organizations are now feeling the heat as a result. Our D.C. correspondent Frontinus sends the following brief overview of what’s happening, including proposed action by Congress.

    OK, folks, you just have to look at the videos on this GP article.
    John Mishka, “Big John” around here, came on over to the SHROUDED (BURKA’D) General Robert E. Lee statue in Charlottesville THIS AFTERNOON, took out his trusty hunting knife, and began to CUT DOWN the SHROUD (BURKA) off the statue. He was heckled and then somebody called the cops, who came and told him to leave off—but NOT before Big John made substantial progress in cutting off the nasty cloth. He made some interesting comments to the assembled crowd with the cops watching. He called slavery “the birth defect of America” but also said that the SHROUD (BURKA) on the statue is a DESECRATION.

    Saw a very quick report today on Kushner meeting in Egypt and not sure I have it right. It was reported that the scheduled meeting with al sissi, I believe, was cancelled. It was a snub because we witheld some payment from Egypt. Meeting was later rescheduled, but it certainly did not sound like the cozy relationship we have been enjoying with Egypt. Anyone have better information?

If that is true, they may have been in a snit because daddy cut their allowance. They’ll adjust.

    This is in response to the numerous comments as to how a lookout on a Navy ship could miss a tanker. And the answer is he could not. Then the obvious conclusion is then the conning officer would have turned away. This is not how it works. The lookout can only report what he sees, and if he sees a ship heading toward them, that is what he reports. What the lookout doesn’t know and can’t possibly know is the actual speed of the vessel he sees. And to make matters worse the lookout can’t know the actual distance of the vessel especially at night. However the plotting board used by the conning officer to make decisions with shows the vessels speed and closest point of approach. And if the Board shows that the vessel that is bearing down on them will pass 2 miles astern due to it’s speed regardless of its course, it is generally ignored unless something changes.

    This is no different than you pulling out into traffic, you do it every day using your depth perception and landmarks to pull it off without a collision. The ocean has no landmarks, and depth perception of a couple of running lights at night is next to impossible to judge actual distance. That is why the plotting board was developed and used. It used to be done by hand and is now done by computers.

    OK, now how does a tanker get so close to a Naval ship? It is common for vessels to communicate an arrangement to pass close when it is beneficial to one of them. Tankers especially, have courses and speeds that are computer generated for maximum efficiency. They will call other vessels in the area and discuss a passing arrangement. This happens all the time, however what never happens and probably should is the lookout being brought into the loop. So the lookout may have noticed the ship closing and assumed the bridge was well aware of it, and had made arrangements. Especially if he himself informed the bridge of the vessel earlier. And yes sometimes vessels pass close aboard, and it makes my hairs stand on end when it happens to me, but again when arrangements are made due to restricted waters such as a shipping lane it happens.

    So how can a conning officer get fooled? The plotting board lies to him, and the lookouts report is discounted because he can’t know the ships true speed and distance. No different than a skilled driver pulling out into traffic, and the young passenger grabbing the dashboard while yelling, “look out!” Nine out of ten times the skilled driver pulls out anyway if they are sure they can make it.

      If you’re the lookout, another ship on a collision course with you will have a constant bearing all the way to impact, assuming that neither ship changes course or speed. That is the unmistakable characteristic of two ships on a collision course. It’s really, really obvious.

        Yes it is just as obvious as the truck heading at you as you pull out into traffic, it is headed right at you too, but you pull out anyway. It is all about speed and distance, course has little to do with it. Otherwise nobody would go anywhere because a vessel would always be pointed at you.

          Note: A lookout doesn’t use an alidade, so bearing is always just a guess, usually points off the bow. And nobody steers a perfect course, so a bearing can change greatly. That is why you only find alidade’s close to the helm so the helmsman can mark his heading when a contacts bearing is shot. That is the way it used to be done to calculate a vessels relative plot. Now it’s all computer generated from GPS, radar, and AIS. Like I said Nintendo Navigation.

      So Ed, you are saying that the lying plotting board was probably compromised? The computerized board was hacked by a notorious bad actor and that was the cause this collision? Did the same thing happen to the Fitz?

      • Ed. says:

        No I am saying that if the Navy plot board was wrong for what ever reason than it could feasibly cause a problem. If it were hacked, then the only way that could cause a collision is that the lie told to the conning officer would have to be convincing. The only way to do that is to figure it out on the spot. As within radar range with a plot board of your own running. because the Navy doesn’t use civilian GPS or the AIS system, so radar is the only way. Which means radar range.

        For example I was off the coast of Miami one time and my GPS told me I was in the Caspian Sea. Another time my radar plot told me that Key wast was heading south east at 90 knots. It happens but doesn’t cause a problem because it is unbelievable.

      One finale note: No matter how the collision was created there is absolutely no excuse for the Operations Officer who has a crack team of highly skilled people, using the most sophisticated equipment, (that is impossible to hack by the way because it is stand alone, and shielded) who’s sole job is to protect the ship. They also saw the tanker, and plotted it on their own separate board with their own equipment. They watched it approach, and breach the standing order of CPA. Had the Conning officer called CIC and asked the OPS Boss he would have told him the second the collision would occur, and the exact location within an inch. The Operations Officer failed to take evasive action, and yes he has both the authority, ability, and most importantly the duty to take control of the ship when it is in harms way. This is the case for both recent collisions, and has never been explained.

      My previous posts were only to demonstrate that yes a Conning officer can walk into pit of shit, but the OPS Officer’s job is to keep him from bringing the ship with him.

    Once again Trump has used the correct strategy. Trump invited with open arms all the movers and shakers who have the power to MAGA. However, their true colors came out as a result. Now Trump no longer has to be, “Mr. Nice Guy”.

    Trump in the meantime has further solidified his MAGA in the minds of the common ordinary American citizens of our Nation. Each and everyday the people are becoming more and more of the belief it can happen and is happening. This is huge because Trump is no longer being encumbered by the burden of appeasement, other than the very people who stand to benefit most…..the American people.

    Things will move along seemingly very swiftly as a lean machine attacks in full force what is necessary to MAGA. Trump has exposed those who think of themselves first as opposed to those who think of America first. It has taken a great deal of patience, but the ambiguity of gray has given way to a clear distinction between black and white in the minds of patriotic Americans. …..”We Get It”.
