    Julie Swetnick, the third accuser of Kavanaugh, sounds like a piece of work according to her ex-boyfriend. This is not looking good for the Democrats. Keep out the crazies, they undermine your narrative.

      Excuse me? The President is who? 😊

    Friday 5 October 2018
    Iraq’s military has launched another offensive to target ISIL pockets long after the group lost territory. ISIL no longer holds towns and cities, but its fighters still operate in the desert regions around the Iraq-Syria border.

      US President Donald Trump said close ally Saudi Arabia and its king would not last “for two weeks” without US military support at a rally in Mississippi on Tuesday.

      “We protect Saudi Arabia. Would you say they’re rich? And I love the king, King Salman. But I said ‘King – we’re protecting you – you might not be there for two weeks without us – you have to pay for your military,'” the president said to cheers at the rally.

        I am really pleased to have coined the PDT/Phantom Down Ticker expression. My life has not been wasted, after all.

    Aljazeera tv news: fairly extensive reporting on the coordinated announcements by Western Intelligence Agencies (including us as part of Five Eyes) about the Russian hacking campaigns.

    American Caesar? Tucker Carlson’s Conservative Revolution

    A good read (although not everyone will enjoy it).

    The way liquefaction occurred in Sulawesi is unbelievable unless you actually see it happening like this. Over a thousand people are thought to have been buried by this liquefaction.

    • You can easily see how liquefaction can work. Stand on some wet sand (at the beach) – you have to find the right sort – and wiggle your feet. The sand quickly turns to liquid and the more you wiggle the deeper you sink. This is how ‘quicksand’ works too, the more you struggle the more you sink. It’s the movement that liquefies the sand, and it happens very quickly.

        Some of the footage shown on Aljazeera is shocking PG. Entire villages & their occupants just buried in mud. There’s nowhere near enuf personnel and equipment to get to everywhere help is needed. Friday is the day the President has declared is the last day of rescue operations to try and find people alive. Mass graves are being dug and filled. The army has orders to shoot looters. People are looting because food and other aid and shelter is not coming in. It’s a disaster on a terrible scale.
