O muh Frens, there are resources in us of which we have not drawn. There are men who rise refreshed on hearing a threat; men to whom a crisis which intimidates and paralyzes the majority,- demanding not the faculties of prudence and thrift, but comprehension, immovableness, the readiness of sacrifice,- comes graceful and beloved as a bride.
RW Emerson

1. REMEMBER, the arrest of the DIA leaker Frese involves TWO reporters.

- Amanda Macias, national security reporter for CNBC

- Courtney Kube, a national security reporter for NBC.

Reporters can be jailed but it has to be proven that they knew the leak was illegal and the publishing must cause
'direct, immediate, and irreparable harm
harm to the US'.

Watch these three clowns go at each other's throat in 3...2...1...

Paraphrasing Georgi Arbatov, a terrible thing just happened to them.

They seem to have been deprived of an enemy.

But that's why I stay inside.

So that I don't make people into quadriplegics.

A question for @ThomasWic & my American friends here.

Considering the White House statement saying US forces will no longer be in the "immediate area," could this be a concession to Erdogan in return for cooperation in pressuring Iran's regime?

I've also attached a map that is circling on social media, claiming to be an official Turkish plan of a "safe zone" or a "buffer zone" on the Syria border.

Your feedback would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

Today my wife and I celebrated our 58th wedding anniversary.

We're looking forward to the big 60.

President Trump hinted at creating his own news network to oppose CNN.

Speaking to a crowd at an event in The Villages, Florida, on Thursday, the president suggested that a new news platform should be created to counter organizations like CNN, which he frequently decries as publishing “fake news.”

For @barrsniffsatjejuneanalysis

I've been working on a memoir that keeps taking turns that I never expected.

None of it is good, but it's good to KNOW.

Growing up, it was hard for me to make attachments.

Now I don't want them.

Hillary Clinton publicly asked the People’s Republic of China in May to release President Trump’s tax returns — exactly the same act that Democrats and the media claim warrants impeachment.

Oh man. The Dems are being totally played here. I suspected that this was a genius Trump sting from the start. Boente's involvement tends to support that theory.

@ThomasWic for the win!

I caught bit of Rush today on the radio. He is singing right out of the Wic playbook. There has been no vote and there is no live impeachment process. In fact, what is going on is nothing more than an attempt to keep bad publicity at the forefront. It's all fake and innuendo. Shifty has no subpoena power.

There will be no impeachment. It's going nowhere b/c it would kill the Dems for PDJT to again be exonerated and the Dems enshrined in the asshole hall of fame.

More computer code writers.
