Babak In both instances it was silent. Airship? pl
Jack I doubt it unless Trump simply fires the lot (leaders) and starts over with radicals like Trey Gowdy. pl
The Pork Chop Express Since it ran for years through hundreds of kilometers of IS controlled territory in both Iraq and Syria it was obviouls closed to traffic between Iran and syria. pl
Donald The most interesting of these reported phenomena are for me the Phoenix Lights and the spectacle in 2000 of a low flying triangular object, well lit up, that was tracked across Illinois for several hours in the pre-dawn morning by police on patrol. This was in the area between St. Louis and Scott AFB. pl
"The first Iranian military convoy crossed into Syria coming from Iraq through the Tell al-Badi crossing during this week, the UK-based news outlet the New Arab reported on December 16. A senior Iraqi official told the New Arab that the... Continue reading

David Habakkuk IMO there was a conspiracy among the leaders of the US and UK ICs (to include the FBI). This was the "insurance policy" mentioned by Strzok in a text message to his "paramour." This insurance policy was a fall back position devised against the possibility that trump might be elected. The plan was and is to make the country ungovernable in the hope of causing Trump to resign or in some other way remove him from office. Dr. Evelyn Farkas, (a former Obama Administration sub-cabinet political appointee) admitted twice on national television (Mornin' Joe) that she was a member of this cabal. she was proud of that. Even Lightnin' Joe Scarborough was shocked. pl
"There's a lot of spaceflight action on tap Sunday morning (Dec. 17), and you can watch it all before the first NFL game of the day kicks off. Three new crewmembers are scheduled to launch toward the International Space Station... Continue reading

james This is not a public forum. I post comments that I think are worthwhile. pl
The latest revelations about the partisan activities of FBI and DOJ officials now make it clear that folks charged with upholding our system of laws were collaborating with the Intelligence Community, under the direction of Jim Clapper, in misleading members... Continue reading

All Apropos of nothing but my memories, I remember a very old lady telling me when I was young that I should not worry about her because she was going home soon to be with General Lee and Jesus. pl
Nancy K "I also do not feel rural areas should rule over large urban areas due to gerrymandering." How does that work exactly? pl
kooshy No. "agricultural types" refers to field hands in troll farms. pl
SR Wood Yes, that is what we need, a unitary state with 350 million servants of the coastal elites ruled over by the secret police (FBI, NSA, ATF, etc.) pl
jsn You are by far not the worst but in general the anti-capitalist left who write here really want a system in which there is a Ministry of Planning and designated targets for production and distribution for all industry along with regulated profits. Ah! There was a name for that concept. pl
PA Really amusing the way you and the other agricultural types here keep trying to set the agenda and to tell me what to write about. pl
TV I would absolutely agree with that. It was never a good idea to combine federal police and intelligence functions. The FBI should IMO be a criminal police organization and there should be a different group to handle counter-espionage. pl
outthere That's me, a renaissance man for all seasons. Ask anyone. pl
outthere I don't think you like me very much. I make more than 75k/year. How about you? Still got the big sailboat? I never got past the 40 ft. sloop level of sailing. Alas, long gone now. I was thinking of the loss of the Va. Commonwealth income tax deduction, but you may be right, my overall taxes may go down. But, on the other hand rising dividends and interest in our family trust might be a factor as well. BTW VA disability compensation is not taxed. pl
Where is the outrage? The evidence is quite clear. It is no longer a matter of informed speculation that during the final year of Barack Obama's Presidency, key leaders of the intelligence and law enforcement bureaucracies conspired and collaborated to... Continue reading

outthere I don't need to read her books. I know her. she used to want my views as a source for her writings. pl
Laura how many thousand reps would you like to have? pl
Harper I do not think the new tax law is "ill conceived," but I am a believer in supply side economics. I will pay more tax under this law. pl
A. Pols Ah, you want New York, California, Texas and Florida to rule us. In other words you think that a federal republic is a bad idea. I think the Framers were very wise. In fact i would like to see repeal of the Amendment that caused US Senators to be popularly elected. pl
Bill Herschel I think your assumption is unjustified. korea is not the ME. Where is "genocide" occurring in the ME? Syria? Don't be absurd. the jihadi genociders have been defeated. pl
paul I think that is not correct. Ruqqaya had a daughter by the Caliph Uthman. The daughter's name was Aysha bint Uthman. she married the Caliph Marwan the first. pl
