Alan Colmes Dies
Dang Alan was a liberal and we often called him Skelator even before he bacame ill due to his giant forehead.
Though he seldom if ever admitted his blaring partisan positions even in the face of overwhelming facts that is what we love about him.
He was approachable and always willing to let you troll his feeds a bit. As opposed to some liberals who open an account and load the blocklist first thing.
So that is to be commended in today's internet. Where the open and honest debate we all came to love is quickly fading.
Our prayers go out to his family and he will be missed.

I've seen a lot of articles saying don't be down on 2016 cause people die every year, but stack of dead famous people is just one little factor.
Believe me 2016 sucked the royal big one, good riddance.

Meanwhile in Chechnya
The leader of Russia's troubled Chechnya region says security forces have killed 11 suspected militants in two clashes near the capital, Grozny.
Gunbattles, like the ones announced by Ramzan Kadyrov, used to be commonplace in the war-ravaged Russian region, but have become rare under Kadyrov's rule.
Kadyrov said in a post on the social-media network Instagram on December 18 that during the overnight clash, gunmen fired at police who tried to stop their vehicle. Police killed four gunmen and captured two others, who were hospitalized.
Later on December 18, he said, security forces tracked down other gunmen on the outskirts of Grozny and killed seven of them. Another four suspected militants have been captured, three of whom have been hospitalized, Kadyrov said.
A police officer was also wounded in the clash.
Kadyrov denied media reports claiming that there were more clashes and an explosion in Grozny itself, saying that security forces only engaged the militants only outside the city. He posted a video showing his troops firing their weapons and bodies of the militants lying in snowy fields and wooded areas following the clash.
"None of these devils will get out alive if they enter Grozny with weapons," Kadyrov wrote.

Regular Guy John Glenn Goes to Heaven
An authentic hero and genuine American icon, Glenn died this afternoon surrounded by family at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus after a remarkably healthy life spent almost from the cradle with Annie, his beloved wife of 73 years, who survives.To me John Glenn was one of those guys who made it cool to be smart. The kind of person a young boy might include in his dreams. An aspiration, proof that it can happen.
He, along with fellow aviators Orville and Wilbur Wright and moon-walker Neil Armstrong, truly made Ohio first in flight.
It CAN happen.... RIP John Glenn.

Specially Designated Terrorist al-Qaeda and al-Nusra Member Skypes NYT's From His Safe Haven Saudi Arabia
Of course our stated objective is to deny terrorists safe havens in lawless places like Afghanistan and Libya, this is all well and good, save for the safe havens in Saudi Arabia and Pakistan.
A Saudi-based, al-Qaida-connected cleric Skyped the New York Times last week to insist he’s not a globally designated terrorist.I'm like totally shocked.
“Today, Syrians are shocked to find that the United States has put on the terror list a person whom they consider to be a national symbol,” Abdallah Muhammad al-Muhaysini told The New York Times. He continued “It’s a very bizarre thing.”
The NYT described the scene as comical:
Muhaysini even admitted to The New York Times he’d been in contact with al-Qaida leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri, but insisted he did so to denounce the Islamic State.
The Long War Journal has tracked Muhaysini since 2014, and described his terrorist connections in detail, including known connections to a jihadi cleric linked to 9/11, serving as an al-Qaida emissary to ISIS in 2014, and bragging about his exploits on Twitter.

I know we call it Veterans day. And I would never want to take away from what they have done for all of us.
But I think its worth taking a moment to remember that we celebrate the END of WW I today.
That and the best way to honor those who have given the ultimate so that we may have peace is to do our very best to keep it.
There will be times when we fail, and soldiers have to do what they have to do. God bless them.
Which is what bother's me about all this succession talk, have we forgotten that the ditches ran with our blood to settle that issue? We must never forget.
Our goal in war must always be to end it. And end it well.

Steven was brilliant, a former engineer with a crackerjack mind. His old blog, U.S.S. Clueless was tremendously important in the early days of the 'blogosphere'. It is hard to overstate the importance of U.S.S. Clueless and the brilliance of his analysis. Sadly, that site went down this past week as well, when Steven's server failed. That site was immensely influential to many of us, and I am far from the only person he inspired to blog or helped along.

I'm sympathetic for the Kurds cause to have their own state, but this is a piss poor way to go about things.
Remember the Kurds are our friends but in the Middle East friend is not an absolute term. The PKK which is a designated terrorist entity in the US are communists. They have bombed Turkish police stations and such to ear their designation.
So a word to Kurds, don't be dicks, its not helping you.

Crooked Hillary Endorsed Anthony The Wiener Weiner As Huband For Huma
n another message, he blamed her for keeping him awake the previous night. “I did not sleep well . . . Horny as f–k,” he wrote.So Hillary gives Bill an intern who saves his DNA, Anthony deletes his twitter after a woman saves all his sexts for months and sells them to the NY Post.
He even confessed to masturbating while thinking about her, calling her “literally a fantasy chick.”
“And I mean literally. So now you know how I got to sleep last night,” he wrote, adding a purple demon emoji.
After she sent him a cartoon image of a pump bottle of hand lotion and a box of tissues, he responded with a graphic, homemade text-and-emoji image of an ejaculating penis.
“OK…..Enough of that!! she wrote.
“Yeah. I taxed myself too much on that one. So anyway, what are you wearing,” he wrote back, adding a winking, tongue-out emoji.
LMAO. The more things change, the more times Anthony shows is wiener.

ISIS Using Child Bombs Usual Dead Baby Porn Pushers Silent
Remember Arabs and Muslims love their children., they make such good bombs, not to mention the dead baby propaganda they use to guilt the West.
A young boy carrying a suicide vest in Kirkuk, north of Baghdad claims he was kidnapped by armed ISIS terrorists who strapped on a suicide vest and ordered him to attack.So are the usual dead baby porn pushers outraged by this?
TV footage of the dramatic incident shows Iraqi security forces disarm the young boy, who was aged around 12, before bundling him into a truck.
The incident happened one hour after another suicide bomber targeted a Shiite mosque in the city.
A year ago, the US-Backed opposition killed those children with a car bomb.. Why this boy and not them? pic.twitter.com/zkgwGHb5YV— maytham (@maytham956) August 21, 2016

Islamic Terrorist Guilty of War Crimes
For some reason Ahmad al-Mahdi thinks that we should forgive him and Allah weill reward us. The same kind Islamic rewards he brought to Mali?
The first defendant to plead guilty at the international criminal court has apologised to Mali and to mankind for destroying religious monuments in the ancient city of Timbuktu.He's getting off really easy after all he's not being held responsible for all the Muslims and non-Muslims murdered during the occupation of Timbuktu by al-Qaeda and Ansar Dine. Ahmad al-Mahdi was a commander during the slaughter as well, he should hang.
Ahmad al-Mahdi admitted directing the destruction of nine mausoleums and a mosque door in 2012, when Timbuktu was controlled by rebels and members of al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb.
At the opening of his trial for war crimes in The Hague, he expressed his “deep regret” to the people of Timbuktu, to whom the monuments had been of great religious and cultural importance.
“I seek their forgiveness and I ask them to look at me as a son who has lost his way,” he said. “Those who forgive me will be rewarded by the almighty. I would like to make them a solemn promise that this was the first and the last wrongful act I will ever commit.”

RIP Dr. John McLaughlin
My grandfather on my father's side turned me on to McLaughlin Group, he had been looking very frail of late.
McLaughlin group was the predecessor of modern panel discussions. And John was a pretty sharp bird. Jack Germond, Elanor Cleft, Pat Buchanan. Always a good panel.
A message from the McLaughlin Group family.
Earlier this morning, a beloved friend and mentor, Dr. John McLaughlin, passed away peacefully at the age of 89. As a former jesuit priest, teacher, pundit and news host, John touched many lives. For 34 years, The McLaughlin Group informed millions of Americans. Now he has said bye bye for the last time, to rejoin his beloved dog, Oliver, in heaven. He will always be remembered.
Please note, we will inform you - via this page - of memorial service details
The think is he was on last week, though the last year you could really tell John was in bad health. So in these weird times I often joked that McLaughlin group was where I went to find out WTF was really going on.
And they were very good. I reported way before the convention that the fix was in and it was Hillary vs Trump. I got that from John.
Sad, because I'm sure he would have wanted to know how this all works out, or maybe he did know already. Now I have no way to know what will happen before it happens. Hopefully the panel will carry on the tradition for all us political junkies
A relic of a bygone era when fierce partisans at the end of the day were friends.
His last broadcast.
My bad there is one episode from 08/12 where the panel held the show without John on as moderator.

Revolution Muslim Fails Again Or Did They?
And old friend of Zack Chesser has been arrested, one would think that he was also friends with some other members of Revolution Muslim, the gift that just keeps on giving.
Dept of Justice Press Release.
Nicholas Young, 36, of Fairfax, Virginia, was arrested today on charges of attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), a designated foreign terrorist organization. Young is employed by the Metro Transit Police Department (MTPD) as a law enforcement officer.
Assistant Attorney General for National Security John P. Carlin, U.S. Attorney Dana J. Boente of the Eastern District of Virginia and Assistant Director in Charge Paul M. Abbate of the FBI’s Washington Field Office made the announcement. Young’s initial appearance is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. before U.S. Magistrate Judge Theresa C. Buchanan of the Eastern District of Virginia.
According to the affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint, Young has been employed as an MTPD officer since 2003. Law enforcement first interviewed Young in September 2010 in connection with his acquaintance, Zachary Chesser, who had been arrested and subsequently pleaded guilty to attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization. Over the next several years, Young allegedly had numerous interactions with undercover law enforcement personnel and an FBI confidential human source (CHS) regarding his knowledge of and interest in terrorism-related activity. Many of these interactions were recorded. Law enforcement also interviewed Young’s family and co-workers. In 2011, Young met with an undercover law enforcement officer, and several of these meetings included another of Young’s acquaintances, Amine El Khalifi, who later pleaded guilty to charges relating to his plan to conduct a suicide bombing at the U.S. Capitol Building in 2012.
According to the affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint, in 2011, Young traveled to Libya once and attempted to travel there a second time. Young told FBI agents that he had been with rebels attempting to overthrow the Muammar Qaddafi regime. Baggage searches revealed that Young traveled with body armor, a kevlar helmet and several other military-style items, according to the allegations.
According to the affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint, on about 20 separate occasions in 2014, Young met with the CHS, who posed as a U.S. military reservist of Middle Eastern descent who wanted to travel overseas to join ISIL. During these conversations, Young allegedly advised the CHS on how to evade law enforcement detection by utilizing specific travel methods and advised the CHS to watch out for informants and not discuss his plans with others.
According to the affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint, also in 2014, the CHS led Young to believe that he had successfully left the United States and joined ISIL. In reality, the CHS had no further contact with Young. All further communications between Young and the CHS’s email account were actually communications between Young and FBI undercover personnel posing as the CHS. In June 2015, Young emailed the CHS asking for advice from the CHS’s commanders on how to send money to ISIL. Young said, “[u]nfortunately I have enough flags on my name that I can’t even buy a plane ticket without little alerts ending up in someone’s hands, so I imagine banking transactions are automatically monitored and will flag depending on what is going on.”
In December 2015, the FBI interviewed Young, ostensibly in connection with an investigation into the whereabouts of the CHS, according to the affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint. Young allegedly said that the CHS had left the United States to go on a vacation tour in Turkey approximately one year ago. In addition, according to the allegations in the complaint, Young said that he knew of no one in the United States or overseas who helped the CHS cross the Turkish border into Syria.
On July 18, 2016, Young allegedly communicated with a person who he believed to be the CHS regarding purchasing gift cards for mobile-messaging accounts that ISIL purportedly uses in recruiting others to join the terrorist organization. According to the affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint, on July 28, 2016, Young sent 22 gift card codes to the FBI undercover officer posing as the CHS with a message that stated: “Respond to verify receipt . . . may not answer depending on when as this device will be destroyed after all are sent to prevent the data being possibly seen on this end in the case of something unfortunate.” The codes were ultimately redeemed by the FBI for $245, according to court documents.
A criminal complaint is merely an allegation, and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
If convicted, Young faces a statutory maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. The maximum statutory sentence is prescribed by Congress and is provided here for informational purposes. If convicted of any offense, the sentencing of the defendant will be determined by the court based on the advisory Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.
The MTPD initiated this investigation and continues to work collaboratively with the FBI Washington Field Office’s Joint Terrorism Task Force on the case. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Gordon D. Kromberg and John T. Gibbs of the Eastern District of Virginia and Trial Attorney David P. Cora of the National Security Division.

Islam is not Hijacked but Hijacking infidels, totally 100% Halal.
I have only one comment. Halal and Haram. Halal is permitted, Haram is forbidden.
Halal does not mean, "good" or " not evil" or "better" it ONLY means only permitted. So evil perpetrated against Kuffar is "permitted". Their definitions don't quite jive with western thought.
