    Aljaz tv news. Turkey has launched its threatened attack on the US-backed Kurdish YPG positions in the Northern Syrian enclave of Afrin. Although this airspace is controlled by Russia, they are allowing the Turks to carry out airstrikes as they prepare for their ground offensive.

    Watching an excellent doco on Aljaz about Jobs & Gates, their personalities, & Apple’s & Microsoft’s development history & rivalry.

    Aljaz tv headlines – interesting in between headlines. Pence is visiting Egypt and going on to Jordan, discussions will include Israel. He said the US still supports a two state solution. I wonder if Trump does. This week.

      Hilarious piece. Dems have literally nothing to be afraid of, Republicans have been hostile to the black vote since Goldwater; Trump’s been openly hostile to non-whites ever since his MAGA dogwhistle. The same way black women crucified Roy Moore, blacks will drive the Democratic wave in November.

      I’ve been watching Fox Live on YouTube quite frequently over the last few days Al. If I thought that most of their hourly roster of hosts were a collection of blatantly-biased almost rabidly Democratic/Liberal/ Progressive-hating Trumpophiles, Laura Ingraham takes it to a more savage level than most of the blokes. I’ve never managed to make it thru a whole segment of hers. She’s too rabid for me.

      Anderson Cooper of CNN is just as bad with his endless rabid anti-Trump, anti-Republican rants, from what I have seen.

      Guests from the “other side” are invited onto these news ‘shows’ for ‘their perspective’ only so they can be savaged, talked over, & hopefully humiliated. No such thing as neutrality or impartiality over there on the main tv channels I think. It’s all out war.
