    Trump vs Turkey & Kurdish allies....

    Steve Mnuchin has been trotted out to threaten sanctions against Turkey - after Trump has already let the horse bolt.

    Trump vs Turkey & Kurdish allies....

    Just as Trump gave the Saudi Crown Prince a free pass for the murder and dismemberment of Khashoggi, this trouble with Turkey will conveniently pass as well. Meanwhile the death toll in Yemen is now 233,000 from the Saudi bombing campaign supported by the U.S. and Great Britain.

    Rudy and the Beast

    Well I have to give them all credit for this. While under the Mueller investigation they flooded the zone with so much crap that after a short while most people just wanted it all to end. In other words they didn't even have the patience to let justice run its course.

    I wouldn't want to share a foxhole with you when the going gets tough.

    Trump is definitely a false prophet whom most evangelicals have deigned to be an 'instrument of God.'

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    "I don't know any of these people." Trump meets with the indicted Ukranians after they give his campaign super-pack $325,000. Separately, they have been indicted for funnelling Russian money to the GOP. The Russian donor in question pressed to have the Ukraine Ambassador removed. Trump made that happen.

    Democrats Begin Impeachment of Trump

    It will be interesting to see if they go so far as to strip the powers of Congress granted to them in the Constitution and forevermore make them an inconsequential arm of the U.S. government.
  9. Mark of the Devil (1970) Michael Armstrong, Adrian Hoven, West Germany. The imdb lists this as a German language film. The version that I saw was completely dubbed in English. I suspect that the German version is completely dubbed or post synced in German. In other words, none of the production sound recordings were ultimately used in any version of the film. Many of the lead actors, Herbert Lom included did their on set original performances in English so while a German language version may exist I don't personally see this as a foreign language film. For the same reasons I don't view The Good, the Bad and the Ugly as foreign language as the leads were also performing in English. All that aside, I saw this yesterday so it is pretty fresh. It is borderline S&M soft core porn. It has none of the virtues of a good Hammer or AIP witchfinder film.

    Trump vs Turkey & Kurdish allies....

    Newsflash. Obama is no longer President. Trump is and he has betrayed an ally. Everything else is beside that point. You are the one talking about everything else but that fact.

    Trump vs Turkey & Kurdish allies....

    Again, this has nothing to do with Trump betraying an ally which he need not have done. But he does like to keep his dictators happy, doesn't he. He goes all starry-eyed when speaking with them.
  13. You may have to ask ALL of America's allies what they are thinking about that.

    Trump vs Turkey & Kurdish allies....

    This has nothing to do with what Trump is doing right now. When you become President you inherit stuff. If you don't wish to deal with it, don't run for President. Stop with the whining, watching television, golfing and the angry tweets and get on with being President.

    Lock Them Up!

    Fasten your seat belts!!!!!!!! Politics Two business associates of Trump’s personal lawyer Giuliani have been arrested on campaign finance charges Add to list Rudolph W. Giuliani arrives at the Trump Tower for meetings on Nov. 17, 2016, in New York. (Eduardo Munoz Alvarez/AFP/Getty Images) By Devlin Barrett and John Wagner October 10 at 10:05 AM Two business associates of President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani were arrested and are in custody Thursday, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan said. The two men, who helped Giuliani investigate former vice president Joe Biden, were arrested Wednesday night in Virginia and charged with campaign finance violations, according to a person familiar with the charges. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation. Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman have been under investigation by the U.S. Attorney’s office in Manhattan and are expected to appear in federal court in Virginia later on Thursday. According to the indictment, Parnas, Fruman and other defendants “conspired to circumvent the federal laws against foreign influence by engaging in a scheme to funnel foreign money to candidates for federal and state office so that the defendants could by potential influence with the candidates, campaigns, and the candidates’ governments.” An attorney for the two men, John Dowd, did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Parnas and Fruman have little history of political involvement but emerged suddenly in a circle of elite Trump donors after Parnas gave $50,000 to support Trump’s election in 2016 and a pro-Trump super PAC reported receiving $325,000 last year from a company the two men incorporated. House committees have asked them to turn over all documents and communications related to the donations and have sought depositions from both men. Since late 2018, the two Florida-based business executives have been assisting Giuliani’s push to get Ukrainian officials to investigate former vice president Joe Biden and his son, as well as Giuliani’s claim that Democrats conspired with Ukrainians in the 2016 campaign. They have also been pursuing opportunities in Ukraine for a new liquefied-natural-gas venture. Parnas, a 47-year-old former stockbroker who was born in Ukraine, has told The Washington Post that Giuliani is an attorney for the two men but declined to say what services he is providing them. Parnas said he and Fruman helped set up a Skype call for Giuliani in late 2018 with Viktor Shokin, the ousted prosecutor general, and an in-person meeting in New York in January 2019 with Yuri Lutsenko, then Ukraine’s prosecutor general. Parnas made his first large political contribution in 2016, when he gave $50,000 to Trump Victory, a joint fundraising committee for the Republican National Committee, the Trump campaign and GOP state parties, campaign finance records show. Parnas told The Post that he decided to get involved politically because he was a passionate supporter of Trump’s candidacy after growing up in New York and selling Trump condos in the city when Trump’s late father, Fred, was still running the Trump Organization. In May 2018, about six months before the men began working with Giuliani on his Biden investigation, a Florida business established by Parnas received a $1.26 million wire transfer from an account whose owner was represented by a real estate lawyer who specializes in assisting foreign buyers of U.S. property, court documents and corporate filings show. Two days later, America First, the main pro-Trump super PAC, reported receiving $325,000 from a company Parnas and Fruman had incorporated the previous month called Global Energy Producers. Last year, the nonprofit Campaign Legal Center filed a still-pending complaint with the Federal Election Commission over the donation, alleging that it appeared to be a straw donation that masked the identity of the original contributor. Parnas told the Miami Herald last week that the money for the super PAC donation was from proceeds from the sale of a Miami-area condominium. Kelly Sadler, a spokeswoman for the super PAC, has declined to comment on “ongoing legal matters.” “I can tell you that we scrupulously adhere to all laws and regulations,” she said. The real estate lawyer involved in the transfer, Russell S. Jacobs, did not respond to requests for comment.

    Nor did the Kurds help in Viet Nam. But, come to think of it. Donald 'Bonsepurs' Trump didn't either.

    You are so forgiving. Just wait until the berserkers start showing up at your doorstep.
