      That is quite a coup for a 19 year old. Is the UK state security apparatus going to put Edginton in jail for the rest of his life?

      FTA – proof the UK has no ideal of the value of the US relationship or even what shape that relationship is in. Mainly because Sir Douchebag was running their US relationship.

      “…After all, the Foreign Office, fully aware of the contents of the story ahead of its publication, had breezily brushed off the leak, saying in a statement that its Washington team’s strong relations with the White House ‘will withstand such mischievous behaviour’.

      Of course this made great sense. Britain’s special relationship with the US has endured for decades, despite many bumps in the road.

      What changed everything was the volcanic rage that the leaked cables provoked from Donald Trump. In a series of fiery tweets, he branded Sir Kim a ‘pompous fool’, a ‘very stupid guy’, and declared that his administration would no longer work with him.

      The Foreign Office was left reeling: Britain’s man in Washington had been humbled and the diplomatic establishment in London left red-faced…”

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents had to use tear gas and pepper spray early Saturday to stop nearly 50 “undocumented individuals” from illegally entering the U.S. after they stormed a port of entry along the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas, officials said.

    So what became of the drop in the ocean, the two thousand illegal aliens that were to be deported?

        2 weeks in DC is also known as “Not happening”. For example, the wall, declassification, release of IG reports, etc. We have to learn to speak the language of DC….many less disappointments that way!

          It’s weirder the Fake News Media isn’t jumping on it, or the second there’s a discrepancy.
          But then I guess they’d have to come out of their little bubbles to notice. A/o not rely upon talking points/ words-of-the-day to dictate their daily dose of propaganda. Their job is to parrot “News,” not actually find it.

    Argentina: Latin America’s New Leader in Counterterrorism
    by Joseph M. Humire – July 17, 2019

    This week we honor the 85 victims of the largest Islamist terrorist attack in Latin America’s history: the bombing theAsociación Mutual Isrealita Argentina (AMIA) on July 18, 1994. Twenty-five years have passed since the morning when a Renault van packed with 300 kilograms of explosives detonated in front of the AMIA building in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It took more than a decade — until 2006 — for the Argentine government to formally charge the Islamic Republic of Iran and its terror-proxy, Hezbollah, for carrying out the attack. Now, 13 years after that, Argentine President Mauricio Macri is taking a historic step and preparing to officially designate Hezbollah as a foreign terrorist organization in Argentina, the first designation of its kind in Latin America.

      “The significance of this executive action in Argentina cannot be understated. President Macri and his national security team have done what was once seen as politically impossible in Latin America — to designate Hezbollah as a terrorist organization — and make it politically possible.”

      Can somebody explain why please?

        They are in pre electoral time. Macri has to do something to counteract the terrible economy to be re elected. He is behind in the polls.

    Well, soon-to-be PM Boris Johnson is getting off to a good start🤣🤣

    Fta: Boris Johnson has been reported to the Equalities and Human Rights Commission after suggesting women wearing niqabs resembled “letter boxes” and “bank robbers”.
    The incendiary remarks – condemned by politicians across the political divide – came as he said it was wrong for Denmark to impose fines on those wearing the religious headgear in the streets.

    Describing it as “oppressive” in a column for The Daily Telegraph, Mr Johnson added that it was “absolutely ridiculous” that people should “choose to go around looking like letter boxes”

    If a female student turned up at school or at a university lecture looking like a bank robber then ditto: those in authority should be allowed to converse openly with those that they are being asked to instruct,” he wrote.

      I was in a kids clothing store with my niece several months ago. Another woman shopping was wearing the full headpiece with only a slit for her eyes. But she was also wearing short shorts, a summery top, & sandals. 😕

      My niece had spoken to her at one point in passing. I later commented on my confusion, as to WTH was the point? Only my niece failed to notice any part of the outfit!
      I’d say I imagined it, but I know my niece can be a little air-headed at times. It’s not her fault though, it’s my sister’s– she also has that tendency.😏

    While You Slept…

    Latest update on stealing the election via nullifying the electoral college:
    “…proponents of Electoral College reform have submitted to the states the National Popular Vote (NPV) interstate compact. The NPV plan proposes to award states’ electoral votes to the winner of the national popular vote. In practice this means a state abiding by the NPV would award electoral votes to a national vote-winner, even if the majority within the state did not prefer that national winner. Currently, all but two states award their electoral votes to the winner of the popular vote within the state. As we shall see, this is a largely silent, invidious, and unconstitutional plan to abolish the Electoral College.

    The effort is silent because it is being enacted on a state-by-state basis and has received only sporadic local media coverage, with very little national attention. Once the plan has been enacted in a number of states equal to the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency, then the NPV plan will go into effect in each enacting state. Fifteen states and the District of Columbia have enacted the plan, totaling 196 electoral votes. As of this writing, Oregon is the latest addition to the roster of states that have enacted the NPV. On June 12, 2019, Governor Kate Brown signed SB 870 into law. The remaining 74 electoral votes could be obtained if only a handful of states enact the compact….

    • Ausonius, Glad to see you go to BBFL website. He (Jim Lewis)was probably linking to a Publius Huldah article.

      Anyone who cares about constitutional issues, rather than listening to others opinions, should go to her website at http://www.publiushuldah.wordpress.com and simply start reading any of her 70 plus papers on strict construction of the Constitution. You will not be sorry!!
