Twitter rumors fly that Turkey's Islamist tyrant Erdogan is dead
Just rumors. Wonderful, wonderful rumors. Here's a long distance dedication from Dope called Die, M***erf****er, Die!
The American "news" media, not Russian Bots and not Trump, is responsible for sowing divisions and hatred in America, according to left-leaning centrist Tim Pool
I mention this because a mere 15 years ago, only ideologically engaged conservatives hated the media. Now everyone does.
Normies -- more or less apolitical, only-vote-in-presidential-elections normies -- now routinely roll their eyes at mention of the media. That's big.

Mark Dice dubs Little Brian Stelter on the White House social media summit
Little Brian Stelter's ratings have fallen 42%. I'm afraid for Mark Dice -- what's he gonna do when Tater gets shitcanned? Dice needs to start promoting Reliable Sources.
David Steinberg: The Washington Examiner stole the Omar story we had broken, without crediting us, and when I complained, they said we should just be happy that someone gave the story some coverage
Now former Babe.net writer Tiana Lowe says she merely salvaged the story from the "alt-right hacks" who had tainted it with their Nazi associations
Some take issue with this self-serving claim
It takes some cheek to imply that David Steinberg and the Powerline Guys, who are lawyers, are "alt-right hacks" who needed to have their story stolen from them -- without so much as a hat-tip! -- for the Greater Good. And now insults are piled on them to justify this.
I can't believe that an august publication like the Washington Examiner, which employs Seth Mandel, who took money too plant pro-Malaysia stories without disclosing this scheme to his readers, would countenance any kind of ethically-dubious behavior.
Report that a third tanker has been hijacked... I hear it's a Hong Kong ship. Also hearing that the British-owned ship (not the British flagged, Swedish owned ship) has been released with a "warning." So maybe they're picking on countries like Norway and Sweden that can't take the fight to them.
A friend says: "I wonder what course of action McCain would call for if he were still alive."
I'd like to think that McCain would begin an affair with his best friend's wife and break up that marriage and then divorce his cancer-ridden wife. But that's just me, I'm an incorrigible romantic!
Someone just chided me: "Don’t make jokes during the funeral. Have some taste."
Iran's hijacking British ships. Earlier they hijacked a Marshall Islands flagged ship (a US territory). But not German or French ships yet. I wonder if they're trying to split the response of the European bloc, hoping that France and Germany will continue their old support of Iran and old pattern of giving the finger to their ostensible US/UK allies.
50 years ago, Muhammed Ali wrote a letter to the parents of Mary Jo Kopechne.“Dear Mr. Kopechne, assert yourself in the interests of the good name of your daughter. Get yourself a good lawyer and sue that no good son of a bitch, Edward M. Kennedy, for everything he’s got,” [J.J. Sefton]

Well, he's a fan of the ONT quoting him. Still -- I think that's something!

300 "Militants" Killed in Iraq in 2 Days

It's not all bad news:

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Coalition forces battled militiamen loyal to radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr in several Iraqi cities Friday, saying they killed about 300 militants in Najaf over two days of fighting. Battles in other Shiite areas of the country have killed dozens more, according to Iraqi authorities.

Two U.S. Marines and an American soldier were killed in Najaf on Thursday, and 12 troops were wounded, the military said. Fifteen U.S. soldiers were wounded in Baghdad.

Damnit. Still, they took a host of these bastards with them.

In Najaf, 100 miles south of Baghdad, U.S. helicopters on Friday attacked militants hiding in a cemetery near the Imam Ali Shrine in the old city at Najaf's center, where smoke could be seen rising. The fighting began Thursday in Najaf and has since spread to other Shiite areas across the country, as the truce that marked an end to a similar rebellion two months ago appeared to have been shattered.


Al-Sadr blamed the United States for the violence in Iraq (news - web sites) in a sermon read on his behalf Friday in the Kufa Mosque close to Najaf.


The interim government had called America "our partner," he said. "I say America is our enemy and the enemy of the people, and we will not accept its partnership."

Regardless, al-Sadr's aides called Friday for a return to the truce. They asked for the United Nations (news - web sites) and Iraq's interim government to stop the violence.

The Arab Way of War. How many times will we fall for this shit?

I hope -- I pray -- I even trust -- that the al-Sadr experiment is over. Kill him. There is no other option.
