    THE TURKISH THICKET: President Trump will wade into the latest point of tension between the U.S. and NATO ally Turkey, as Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan continues to press ahead with his attacks against Kurdish fighters in the north of Syria, who are among America’s chief allies in the fight against the Islamic State. Trump is scheduled to speak by phone with Erdogan today in an effort to persuade one U.S. ally to stop attacking another. “We want them to de-escalate. I think you can expect that to be part of the conversation,” said White House press secretary Sarah Sanders,...

    President Donald Trump wants his supporters to counter the massive protests against his administration by staging a rally of their own. The president tweeted on Saturday that a demonstration staged by his voters would be 'the biggest of them all.' 'Maybe the millions of people who voted to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN should have their own rally,' Trump tweeted on Saturday. Since taking office and enacting controversial measures, Trump has watched as thousands have taken to the streets in the United States and abroad to denounce him. With the Academy Awards scheduled for Sunday, Hollywood has also waded into the political dispute. Jodie...
  • Harassing calls on my cell

    01/18/2017 2:50:12 PM PST · by A Cyrenian · 64 replies
    I'm getting calls on my cell phone from numbers that don't exist. When I try to look up the number on the net I'm seeing "someone has spoofed the caller id". These calls started right before the election and have continued since. I have added the number as a contact and then block that caller but they just switch to a different number. I never answer the call, I select don't accept option on my phone. Are you getting these and do you know of a way to stop them?

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Just 12 hours before police say a man threw his 5-year-old daughter to her death off a Tampa Bay bridge last month, his own attorney called Florida's child abuse hotline, warning that his client was suffering from mental delusions. But the hotline operator didn't refer the call to investigators because she didn't think the child was in danger, according to documents released by Florida child welfare officials Monday. One week earlier, another worried caller told the Department of Children and Families that Jonchuck's daughter Phoebe had been physically abused in the past. But that call also...

    Obviously Cochran is not going to resign. The governor should appoint McDaniel to his seat the GOP can be unified. Wicker is more open to amnesty than Cochran as well. Wicker only voted against the final cloture after he got hundreds of angry calls.

    from the no-wonder-its-data-centers-are-bursting-into-flames dept Another leak has been released from Edward Snowden's files, this one covered by French newspaper Le Monde. Sam Jones, writing for The Guardian, breaks down the details. The report in Le Monde, which carries the byline of the outgoing Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald, who worked with Snowden to lay bare the extent of the NSA's actions, claims that between 10 December 2012 and 8 January 2013 the NSA recorded 70.3m phone calls in France. According to the paper, the documents show that the NSA was allegedly targeting not only terrorist suspects but politicians, businesspeople and members...

    WASHINGTON — The Obama administration on Wednesday released formerly classified documents outlining a once-secret program of the National Security Agency that is collecting records of all domestic phone calls in the United States, as top officials testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee. As the hearing began, The Guardian newspaper published another document from the archives of Top Secret surveillance matters leaked to it by the former N.S.A. contractor Edward J. Snowden. It was a 32-page presentation describing the N.S.A.´s XKeyscore program, by which N.S.A. analysts can mine vast databases of phone and Internet information the agency has vacuumed up.

HuffPo’s Vivian Norris just suggested a sex strike in Texas to pressure male voters into giving in to the feminist agenda (aka abortion on demand – er, “women’s healthcare.”) Deeply disgruntled that Texas might pass a bill banning abortions after 20 weeks, Norris urged Texas women to force men to vote for pro-choice agendas in the future by refusing to have intercourse with them this summer. “Don't give in...

    JULIA Gillard has called for a Labor leadership ballot to be held at 7pm tonight. ''Anyone who believes they should be Labor leader should put themselves forward for this ballot,'' the Prime Minister said. She said anyone who entered the ballot should commit, in the interests of the party, to resigning from parliament if they lost. The move forces the Rudd camp to bring forward their preferred timetable for a challenge. They had hoped to engineer a special caucus meeting tomorrow and a challenge on Friday. “I am asking my political party to endorse me as a leader and Prime...

    The White House says President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spoke by telephone on Monday, almost a week after Netanyahu's ticket won the most seats in Israel's parliamentary election. Obama reportedly called and congratulated Netanyahu on his success in the election. He said that he looked forward to working with Israel's next government, and affirmed his commitment to a strong U.S. relationship with Israel and to promoting regional peace and security. Relations between Obama and Netanyahu were strained during Obama's first term. Supporters of Obama accused Netanyahu of interfering in the U.S. election in favor of Obama's...

    The "end of the world" could come from giant solar storms, a meteor barrelling toward Earth, a black out or a mysterious "Planet X" threatening widespread destruction, according to some of the possible doomsday scenarios that have proliferated for the last year. What these predictions seem to agree on is this predicted doomsday apparently will fall on Friday, Dec. 21, 2012. NASA is working to dispel fears and debunk the myth - pointing hundreds of concerned callers to the clear-cut scientific facts that promise the Earth will not end Friday. "There are so many scenarios out there, we are trying...

    OAKLAND -- A flier disseminated downtown is urging people to bring bats to next Thursday's Occupy Oakland anniversary protest, not to smash bank windows, but to "beat the (expletive)" out of anarchists and vandals. The flier asks residents to "stand up and defend the great city of Oakland" and specifically calls for violence against "black-clad" Caucasians that "use our city landscape as a canvas for their divisive and violent message." No one has taken responsibility for one-page post, which leaves no contact information. It claims to be from a group calling itself DOOM -- Defend Our Oakland Movement.

    It’s almost become expected at this point. In the nearly four years he’s been in office, Vice President Joe Biden has awed the country with his gaffes (see here, here, and here, just to name a few). And on Sunday, he struck again. During an interview with David Gregory on “Meet The Press,” Biden’s mind seemed otherwise occupied when it came to consistently and correctly referring to who he was talking about. For example, at one point, and much to the joy of Republicans, he referred to Mitt Romney as “President Romney.” But as if that wasn’t embarrassing enough, he...

    A Fort Myers principal involved Lee County sheriff’s deputies in an elementary school crush. Deputies were dispatched Wednesday to Orange River Elementary School in reference to what Assistant Principal Margaret Ann Haring called a “possible sex crime” — two students kissing. “This incident is more of a simple assault, though by definition there would have to be a victim,” Sgt. Stephanie Eller said. Haring told deputies she had two students, both under 12, who kissed while in physical education class, reports said. Haring said one of them was debating about who liked who more. The student then went over and...

According to a Monday report in the French website "Arret sur Images," after facing reporters for a G20 press conference on Thursday, the two presidents retired to a private room, to further discuss the matters...

    President Barack Obama has forcefully rejected calls for Attorney General Eric Holder to resign over a controversial federal law enforcement operation that allegedly allowed hundreds of guns to flow to Mexican drug cartels. Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) and the National Rifle Association have called for Holder's resignation over "Operation Fast and Furious," the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives investigation that monitored suspicious gun sales. Several of the weapons have been recovered from drug gangs in Mexico and two guns were found at the scene of the shooting death of a U.S. Border Patrol Agent last December. However, when...

    Because BBM, which rioters are using to communicate, is not traceable by cops, PM David Lammy says it’s “one of reasons why unsophisticated criminals are outfoxing an otherwise sophisticated police force.” LONDON – What, you might wonder, is the modern urban guerilla’s rioting weapon of choice? A machete? You might think so. But for most of the youngsters looting and ransacking the streets of London for the past three nights, cement blocks, iron bars and supermarket trolleys seemed to do the job of smashing in shop windows just as well. A balaclava? Perhaps. Per the multiple videos posted on Twitter...

    The White House called for an end to the political gridlock blamed for the first-ever US credit rating downgrade as allies voiced confidence in the world's largest economy. Standard & Poor's cut the US rating for the first time in history Friday, by one notch from its top-flight triple-A to AA+, saying US politicians were increasingly unable to manage the country's huge fiscal deficit and debt. The agency added a negative outlook, warning there was a chance the rating could be downgraded further within two years if progress is not made in balancing the country's lopsided finances. Washington's allies in...
