      I’m waiting to hear more about how/where/when he was killed.

      When Pops got his virgin allotment there was a faction of AQ that wanted Hamza to become leader while al-Zawahiri had his dawgz. There’s also the question of which philosophy the organization was going to follow. Those Moslems just can’t agree on succession.

      I’m also wondering how much the goings on in Yemen are figuring in on this. The Iranian backed Houthi are gaining ground while the more Sunni AQAP are right in there, nose to nose, fighting for primacy. Possession of Yemen would give both a base that would give them a fig leaf of legitimacy on the world stage while also giving the winner a base to influence shipping going thru the Bab-el-Mandeb and threatened Saudi Arabia. Might some player(s) have assisted in removing Hamza to further their own ambitions?

      • I have always wondered if a similar letter was written by Blasey Ford making the same allegations against Goresuch, but Feinstein chose not to publicize it. Her letter definitely felt like a fill in the blanks, cut and paste job. Her sudden recollection and telling of the event to friends, where she did not name the perpetrator started when Goresuch was nominated. I have always wondered if Goresuch was the first attempt, and when that went nowhere, she tried again with Kavanaugh. Very convenient they all were in school together.

          It’s right in our faces – the ‘soft’ coup to take down a duly elected President, now attacks against the Supreme Court to take down trust that those who pass judgment are now either unproven criminals at worse, blackmailed targets at best.

          Makes me think the coup is a lot larger than originally thought, or

          this is just Clinton dirty-tricks payback for Justice Kavanaugh’s work which led up to the Pres. Clinton impeachment.

          Either way it solidifies in my mind to never, ever, ever vote for anyone in the Democrat party ever again, not even for dog-catcher on the local level.

        And for all of those who are “Refugees,” (like the Boston Marathon bombing Tsarnaev brothers, taken in as youngsters and their whole family supported by the American taxpayers for life), and all of their babies born here, send them to the Safe Zones propounded by President Trump during his campaign.

        CAIR needs to be declared a terrorist organization, as do all of the other organizations with an Islamic bent to them, and Islam itself must be correctly seen as the Political Ideology that it is, rather than a Religion, which ironically gives it protection in the United States – the last thing our prescient founding fathers intended. And what they intended was a system which would PRESERVE America. For Americans.

    The latest Harvard/Harris Poll finds Hispanic Americans, by a majority of 56 percent, support denying permanent residency to immigrants who are known to have used welfare or are likely to use welfare. Likewise, a majority of 65 percent of Hispanic Americans said illegal aliens should not be allowed to draw from taxpayer-funded welfare programs, as well as 71 percent of black Americans.

      Black politicians kissing Rat rump are screwing their own pooch. Their black constituency is slowly starting to realize that the free stuff pool isn’t all that deep and not only will the latinos flooding here drain that bad boy but, as we’ve seen in states like California, as the latino political power grows past black political power the goodies hose gets pointed elsewhere.

      So far locally the black pols have managed to keep the sheep asleep, but slowly the realization that the welfare well ain’t bottomless is starting to sink in. Gonna be interesting to see how the black pols try to explain the Rat elite’s replacing the black sheep with brown sheep to their flocks.

    Once again, all the pundits on Fox are missing the point completely. Every single one of them that I saw commenting on Bill Maher’s statement that socialism is a cancer on progressivism agreed with him and gave him credit for being right.

    Bill Maher is an idiot.

    Socialism is not a cancer on progressivism, it is the GOAL of progressivism.

    Communism is the goal of socialism.

    Bill Maher is just too stupid to see that progressivism has simply “progressed” to the point where it can no longer hide it’s socialist/communist endgame. It’s like when you load the kids in the car to go visit Grandma and take them to Disneyland instead. At some point, you gotta tell them where you’re going.

      I suspect that the CH team had spies/operatives in State or elsewhere in the foreign policy apparatus, who were tasked with watching President Trump’s “foreign policy decision-making” and reporting back to the conspirators on anything they deemed “evidence” of a “tilt” toward better relations with Russia (which they would label as a “quid pro quo”).

    Still mulling over the rat f**k that passed as a Democratic debate, sorta like a bad piece of meat that won’t go down.

    One of the main things that stays with me is the candidate’s lack of enthusiasm to tackle the illegal drug trade. They were almost orgasmic in talk about taking away our guns and medical care but drugs….crickets chirping.

    Note that the states churning out many of the candidates are states that benefit from the yearly $150-BILLION illegal drug trade here. $150-BILLION a year buys you a lot of Mexican and American officials at all levels – and those are the Fed’s figures as to how much the illegal industry rakes in so you can bet it’s really more than that.

    The cartels have an effective infrastructure installed in the US, it moves drugs and money like a well-oiled machine, it supplies ample and cheap drugs from major cities to the most remote rural areas at reasonable costs despite the catches by Customs and the Coast Guard. I’m not hearing the candidates declare war on the cartels before the cartels turn our cities into Tijuana norte.

    The cartels use the southern border like a train station,moving drugs and criminals across it in an organized manner. They own the border, above and below ground, and the cartel criminals from mules to sicarios, when caught are traced back to illegal border crossings. Anybody hear them talking about securing the border to prevent these thousands of drug criminals from being replaced/reinforced?

    How about American LEA? How many of the candidates pounded the lecterns demanding a more capable LEA at all levels trained and equipped to deal with the MEXICAN CARTELS that, in many areas, have levels of sophistication that rivals that of the local LEA? Reducing the ability of LEA to do its job maybe, but nada about fighting that which is already here.

    Fact is they realize that drug money has become such an integral part of their respective states’ economies that if they could eliminate the violence and just let the drugs flow I believe they would. So far the Left Coast and Denver have legalized pot, Denver also legalized psilocybin and groups in California are lobbying for free, safe and legal areas for junkies to shoot up and decriminalization of possession of party drugs. AT some of the NOLA festivals you don’t need to look for drugs, the sellers come looking for you, there seems to be a laissez faire attitude to whatever bring tourists and their $$$$s in. Did we hear anything from them about getting tough on any illegal drugs and making sale/possession a major felony?

    I think we’re seeing the Democrats a major change to American morality, bringing a more effete European morality where the lines are blurred and more skewed to ‘if it feels good do it as long as no one else is hurt’ gray morality. Dearth to the 1st and 2nd Amendments. Death to organized religion and the nuclear family. Death to traditional morality. Death to America as a beacon.

      The war on drugs has been a complete and utter failure.
      Since 1971, the war on drugs has cost the United States an estimated $1 trillion. In 2015, the federal government spent an estimated $9.2 million every day to incarcerate people charged with drug-related offenses—that’s more than $3.3 billion annually.19
      State governments spent another $7 billion in 2015 to incarcerate individuals for drug-related charges.20 North Carolina, for example, spent more than $70 million incarcerating people for drug possession.21 And Georgia spent $78.6 million just to lock up people of color for drug offenses—1.6 times more than the state’s budget current for substance use treatment services.

        I have a string of posts on drugs, my ‘bumping into them’ went from the middleish of ’67 to today. They are the everywhere and despite the BS War on Drugs they are cheaper and more readily available now than they were when the War started.

        Those stalwart members of the entertainment industry have glorified drugs and made them not only acceptable to mainstream society but almost a necessity for entertainment purposes. There is no stigma for being addicted, only forgiveness and endless enabling through useless rehab…mostly at our expense.

        The dirty little secret is that despite the government’s hand-wringing on illegal drugs they’ve become as acceptable and available as bread and milk to the American public. They’re tolerated, despite governmental smoke-up-the-butt to the contrary, and contribute huge amounts to the local economies. NOLA has floated the ‘legal pot’ balloon as a tourist incentive – locals shot the idea down – but as it always has the enforcement is…let’s say less than enthusiastic. You here for a festival or Mardi Gras, you gots nooooo problems getting loaded on anything, they practically do Blue Light Specials in the Quarter during major events.

        Communities and politicians turn a blindish eye to drugs as both sides move lots of money into the jurisdictions. Dealers spend and governments pour cash in for enforcement and rehab, a win-win for the pols.

        I know a police commander who moved into a district and, using basic police work, took tons of illegal guns, thugs with warrants and truckloads of drugs off of the streets. For some reason the local ministers and bar owners loudly complained to the city commissioners that he was hassling the young black menses (between the hours of 1 and 5 AM) so they moved him to a new area, crime went back to normal, and all was well in da hood.

        And the war goes on….

        I am a retired LEO who worked for one of the nation’s premier drug treatment organizations upon retirement. What a sham. Honest statistics on continued sobriety “outcomes” are MISERABLE and most organizations are now opting for “harm reduction” which means: so long as you are using “less” you are considered a success. Virtually every junkie will tell you that that harm reduction is bull chit..
        Addiction is a deadly disease which decimates entire communities. As a society, we have been unwilling to implement the draconian measures necessary to tackle addiction, political correctness being a primary stumbling block. Until we have long term programs that demand complete abstinence while teaching principles of ethics, hard work along with marketable skills this destructive phenomenon will continue to plague American cities and towns. The Delancy Street Program is a notable exception to the treatment fraud as this program does demand abstinence, requires real labor, and does teach marketable skills.. The “war on Drugs” is a mirage.Cities are now opting for “safe injection sites” and “clean needle” distribution. That’s like giving a drunk free booze and sterilized shot glasses in order to cut down alcoholism.
        Locking addicts and alcoholics up at huge cost is not a solution. Allowing them to pollute communities is not a solution. Bogus Treatment programs are not a solution.

      That would be incredibly dumb as that’s exactly what Iran wants. They as well as their ally, Russia, would LOVE high oil prices. They’ve been trying to accomplish that with tanker attacks and boardings. That didn’t work. Thus, this attack.

      Anything less that a total destruction of Iran would accomplish nothing more than driving oil prices to the moon. An attack in kind on just their oil facilities would do the same by threatening all-out war in the Gulf. That would greatly harm a fragile economy worldwide which would have transfer effects here and any economic downturn here prior to the 2020 election would harm Trump’s prospects, another benefit for Iran and the neocons calling for retaliation.

        Blackwater Guards Fired at Fleeing Cars, Soldiers Say

        Blackwater USA guards shot at Iraqi civilians as they tried to drive away from a Baghdad square on Sept. 16, according to a report compiled by the first U.S. soldiers to arrive at the scene, where they found no evidence that Iraqis had fired weapons.

        “It appeared to me they were fleeing the scene when they were engaged. It had every indication of an excessive shooting,” said Lt. Col. Mike Tarsa, whose soldiers reached Nisoor Square 20 to 25 minutes after the gunfire subsided.

        His soldiers’ report — based upon their observations at the scene, eyewitness interviews and discussions with Iraqi police — concluded that there was “no enemy activity involved” and described the shootings as a “criminal event.” Their conclusions mirrored those reached by the Iraqi government, which has said the Blackwater guards killed 17 people.

        Tarsa said they found no evidence to indicate that the Blackwater guards were provoked or entered into a confrontation. “I did not see anything that indicated they were fired upon,” said Tarsa, 42, commander of the 3rd Battalion, 82nd Field Artillery Regiment of the 2nd Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division. He also said it appeared that several drivers had made U-turns and were moving away from Nisoor Square when their vehicles were hit by gunfire from Blackwater guards.”

        Does one support American Soldiers and Marines or does one support Blackwater? It is an either/or choice. You can’t choose both.

        Blackwater Is Soaked

        “The colonel was furious. “Can you believe it? They actually drew their weapons on U.S. soldiers.” The colonel, who was involved in a follow-up investigation and spoke on the condition he not be named, said the Blackwater guards disarmed the U.S. Army soldiers and made them lie on the ground at gunpoint until they could disentangle the SUV. His account was confirmed by the head of another private security company.

        One military contractor, who spoke anonymously for fear of retribution in his industry, recounted the story of a Blackwater operative who answered a Marine officer’s order to put his pistol on safety when entering a base post office by saying, “This is my safety,” and wiggling his trigger finger in the air. “Their attitude was, ‘We’re f—ing security; we don’t have to answer to anyone”

      Matt Gaetz should learn more about Erik Prince and Blackwater and seriously rethink his position as it would be fight more wars and lose more of them. I’m not much one for the Pentagon’s “winning hearts and minds”/COIN, but the exact opposite, like My Lai, isn’t any good either. If President Trump went with Erik Prince and Blackwater, rather than US Soldiers and Marines, he would likely be impeached aa a war criminal. I can almost see the democrats salivating now. Is this what you want Matt Gaetz ? With’ friends’ like this, President Trump sure doesn’t need any enemies.

        In 1994, Kavanaugh joined the legal team, led by Kenneth Starr, that was looking into President Bill Clinton’s real estate dealings as part of the Whitewater investigation. Later that decade, Kavanaugh co-wrote the Starr Report, which established broad grounds for Clinton’s impeachment.

        Those proceedings pitted Kavanaugh against a former Yale classmate, Max Stier ’87, a fellow member of Stiles College who was one of several attorneys representing Clinton during the investigation.

          I do not believe that anyone with a brain cell is going to believe that a Clinton lawyer has only just remembered the story. It is obvious that the stories fell apart after Blasey Ford’s father surfaced so now they are digging it all up again. The story came up in the hearing and there were no witnesses in fact the girl herself could not be sure it was Kavanaugh.
          Now this guy is sure, oh my goodness, these people are liberals so they all think we are stupid. The fact that he was involved in the Clinton impeachment against Kavanaugh makes these stories even more unbelievable. It is strange that every one of these people is connected to Clinton in some way.

      Love ti be a fly on the wall during thise disussions, aka 5 eyes, and the AU’s hand(s) in this mess. Not to mention the Clinton & Obama visits in the last 3 yrs. The good news is perhaps our VSGPDJT can woo them to send their lithium to us for EV batteries, not so much to China. Also I read this week, that AU is seriously looking towards Nuckear Power, let’s hope this is discussed as I am still waiting for team Trump & PDJT to roll out a Gen 3 & 4 Nuclear Power / Grid revitalization plan….

        Yes please! Over the last few years the Aus Swamp creatures have been destroying our clean coal power plants. And I do mean destroying, as in dynamite boomsky, power plant no more. Already all MSM outlets have been warning of power blackouts this coming summer, and introducing a new system whereby they can ration power to homes via “smart meters” …
        All in the (lie) name of saving the planet. Australia was completely on board with the globalist agenda selling the country off to China. Our jobs and manufacturing shipped off to China. The government forced the closing of our entire vehicle manufacturing capabilities, Mazda, Nissan, Toyota, Ford, GMH, all of them gone. Over 100 years of vehicle manufacturing and 10s of thousands of jobs gone. Now we see commercials on TV for Chinese car brands like GWM (Great Wall Motors) LDV and HAVAL to name a few.

        Just like America, we were sold out to China and globalist interests. Worse for us as China has a real stronghold in this country financially having embedded themselves at every level. With a population of just 25 million, and just a stones throw away from the largest Muslim nation on the planet, Indonesia, with 225 million Muslims, and China just above us with over a billion people, boy do we need our American allies …

    All these investigations into the deep state and the coup attempt, IG, Huber, House, etc., are mirror images of the Steele Dossier — elaborate bogosities intended to fool, or in this case placate, the rubes. The idea that Barr will indict anybody of consequence is patently ridiculous. That’s the thread on the sock no one is going to pull. Maybe some small fry like McCabe will face a process crime charge, but that’s it.

    • I have to agree unfortunately, why should they , there is no incentive to do so , no upside , just the opposite . If we couldn’t even see that dopey Lois Lerner and her obviously “ fake tax audit scam” dealt with properly , how do you think they will deliver on something 10 times worse / more serious – doubtful at best – sorry for cynicism.
