  • Tense times in US-Turkey relations as officials huddle

    ABC News ^ | ANKARA, Turkey -- Feb 15, 2018, 4:15 PM ET | Matthew Lee and Lolita C. Baldor (AP)
    The discussions were expected to cover several proposals for improving cooperation along the border area. It's been a flashpoint over the years for Turkish-Kurdish tensions, al-Qaida and Islamic State fighters traveling back and forth, and incidents involving major powers including Russia. Reflecting the sensitivity of the talks between Tillerson and Erdogan, only Turkish Foreign Minister Melvut Cavusoglu, serving as translator, also was included in the meeting, which lasted more than three hours. Erdogan's office said the discussions touched on regional developments, including in Syria and Iraq, the fight against terrorism and bilateral relations. "Turkey's expectations and priorities on these issues...

    The Daily Caller News Foundation ^ | 08/30/2017 | Ryan Pickrell
    President Donald Trump tweeted Wednesday that dialogue is not the answer to the North Korean nuclear threat. The Trump administration has been pursuing a policy of “maximum pressure and engagement,” which involves strong economic sanctions and diplomatic pressure to bring North Korea to the negotiating table. Trump, however, signaled Wednesday that there is no point in talking to North Korea. "The U.S. has been talking to North Korea, and paying them extortion money, for 25 years. Talking is not the answer!" — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 30, 2017 Last week, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Aug. 22...

    U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu have talked on the phone, diplomatic sources told state-run Anadolu Agency on March 19.  The two foreign policy chiefs have discussed the preparations for an upcoming meeting of the Global Coalition working to defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), which will be attended by the foreign ministers and senior leaders of the full coalition, now at 68 members. While this meeting will be held at the Department of State in Washington D.C. on March 22, it will be the first time since the establishment...

    This week Mark again brought up the fact that Trump did not agree to back the winning Republican candidate. He also criticized RNC chair Reince Priebus for telling those Republican politicians who did support the nominee that they may not receive RNC support when running for re-election.Here is the modus operandi of Mark Levin: He develops personal grudges, then searches for logic to support those grudges. Instead of attacking the RNC chair when he is doing the right thing, and bringing Trump's initial lack of support for the Republican nominee, he should be rallying against the evil, criminal Hillary. He...
  • Pope: not right to talk about a 'violent, terrorist' Islam

    Pope Francis on Sunday said he won't label Islam as "terrorist" because that would be unfair and not true. Reporters aboard the papal plane flying him home after a pilgrimage to Poland that began the day after extremists slit the throat of an elderly priest celebrating Mass in a French church, asked him why he never uses the world "Islam" to describe terrorism or other violence. While in Poland, Francis made an unscheduled stop at a church in Krakow to implore God to protect people from the "devastating wave" of terrorism in many part of the world. Francis replied that...

    Reports indicate that a supporter of the anti-Israel BDS movement and a self-proclaimed radical who has supported numerous anti-American initiatives has been named the host of a new late night talk show on VH1. Marc Lamont Hill, a CNN commentator, will launch VH1 Live which will begin airing weekly on the Viacom-owned cable network on Sunday, July 17 at 10 PM. Would a supporter of segregation be rewarded with a talk show? How about someone who is fiercely anti-LGBT? It seems that bigotry is only OK if it is directed at Israel. Hill is a staunch opponent of Israel, a...

    When you're the most powerful leader in the world, people have a lot of questions they want answered — including the hosts of daytime and late-night talk shows. In fact, President Obama most recently appeared on Wednesday's "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno," where he and the host chatted about superheroes, Donald Trump and the World Series. Obama is certainly no stranger to these types of chat-show forums, as he's also appeared alongside Barbara Walters, David Letterman and Oprah Winfrey to discuss current events or simply share a laugh.

    In about 90 minutes, Donald Trump will be devastating SeeBS idiot Stephen Colbert. Normally the little weasel's "Late Show" is must-not-watch-teevee but tonight's offering ought to be great as Mr. Trump plays 3-dimensional chess against a leftist peanut brain. Colbert is still mewing and puking from Ted Cruz's jujitsu moves on him last night. Senator Cruz brought a gun to a knife fight but all Colbert had was a spork. This thread ought to be as good of a place as any for FReepers to comment on the unraveling of an unfunny, unintelligent, unhinged leftist by a true zen master,...

    No more Trump? Glenn Beck‘s program with Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere is taking HuffPost‘s stance on Donald Trump a giant step further — they’re going to pretend he doesn’t exist. “It’s the Glenn Beck Program with Pat & Stu, now 100% Trump Free, with 100% Less Trump,” Gray announced on Wednesday’s program. “I’m sick of it,” said Burguiere. “So we’re moving on. Can’t do another show.” Late last week, HuffPost declared that the site was moving the presidential frontrunner to its entertainment pages. Although they’re not entirely doing that.

    Reddit user Soggybrick said he finds it quite funny when he hears his girlfriend Samantha talking in her sleep. So funny, in fact, that he's decided to share some of her most notable lines on the Web. "She just talks sometimes while I'm on the computer late at night," he told ABC News. "So I take notes of them whenever they're absurd or hilarious." Soggybrick, who's actually a man named James living in New Zealand, wrote down and published some of his favorite lines on Reddit, which include the following: I want the little clay things that are spread all...

    Photo (of Lurch and Zarif not shaking hands) The United States suggested to Iran on Sunday that it consider extending nuclear talks, The Associated Press (AP) reports. Iran and six world powers are holding talks in Vienna in an attempt to reach a lasting agreement on Tehran's disputed nuclear program before a deadline on Monday, but little progress has been made. A senior U.S. official told AP that with the Monday evening cutoff date a little more than a day away, Secretary of State John Kerry proposed to Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif that the two sides start discussing...

    The last person who thought Rosie O’Donnell would ever return to “The View” was Rosie O’Donnell. In the spring of 2007, the talk show host opted not to renew her contract with the gabfest created by Barbara Walters, even though her controversial opinions gave the program a ratings boost. Then, shortly before her departure, she got caught in a spectacular fight on live TV with conservative co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck that started over the Iraq War, but quickly turned personal — and went viral. “The day it happened, I was definitely crying,” O’Donnell recalls. “I got my stuff and walked out.”...
  • Charlie Sykes Credited With Helping Boost Glenn Grothman to Victory

    Few questioned the role that talk radio played in turning out Republicans to vote for Sheriff Clarke in this month' primary election. But talk radio also played a role in the 6th Congressional District primary. According to Jason Smathers' report in the Fond Du Lac Reporter, 620 WTMJ talk show host and Editor in Chief of RightWisconsin Charlie Sykes may have tipped the scales for Glenn Grothman's narrow victory. "Mark Graul, a GOP operative who runs Arena Strategy Group in Green Bay, said two reasons Leibham narrowly lost to state Sen. Glenn Grothman, R-Campbellsport, were money and talk radio." (SNIP)...

    Politico ^ | May 29, 2014 | Hadas Gold
    Make no mistake, Fox News is still the ratings king. But the recent May numbers show that while all the cable channels had a decline in ratings (which is normal for May), Fox News was far from spared, with some of its lowest ratings in 12 years. While Fox dominates with the top 14 shows in overall viewers, the total day average for Fox News in the key advertising demographic of the 25- to 54-year-old category was 177,000 viewers, only the second time Fox has gone below a 200,000 average since 2001. Another key factor coming from May ratings is...

    Mindy Kaling took the podium at Harvard Law School's commencement ceremony on Wednesday to receive her honorary legal degree — or so she thought.... Throughout the speech, Kaling touted many lines that might as well been scripted into an episode of 'The Mindy Project,' as said by her character, Mindy Lahiri. "I know what you're probably thinking: Mindy Kaling? Why did they ask her? She's just a pretty Hollywood starlet? What does that quadruple threat know about the law? Sure, she seems really down-to-earth, and pretty but in a totally accessible way, and yeah, she was on People magazine's Most...

    So, one of the Christmas presents I got for my wife is a wax warmer. My 6-year-old son was walking through the living room today as I was moving it and he asked, "Daddy, where did you get that for Mommy?" So I said, "What, this?" "Yes." "At the store." "Oh." He walked a little further and asked, "What store?" And I said, "A store that sells these." "Oh, okay!" and he walked off completely satisfied. My wife, who had been reading on the couch, began to laugh and said, "What kind of conversation was that?!" And I jokingly replied,...

    Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, who is heading the Israeli team for peace talks with the Palestinian Authority, said Sunday that Israel should ignore the terrorists who carried out the bus bombing in Bat Yam and continue with the peace process. Livni, who spoke at a special conference marking Quality Government Day, said that the Palestinian Authority with whom she is negotiating is not behind the terror attack. "Those who tried to harm us today are not those with whom we are conducting or will conduct negotiations," she insisted. “We will not allow criminal terrorists to determine Israel's future. Israel continues...
