    Russia Derangement Syndrome: Syria Edition by David Archibald 6 August 2018 The road to hell is paved with good intentions. So it has been with US involvement in Syria. To provide a context to that involvement, let’s start part way through the story with the self-immolation of a Tunisian vegetable vendor on December 17, 2011, driven to despair by harassment from petty officials. That spark set off the Arab Spring. A number of Arab regimes changed; some remained resilient. That wasn’t good enough for David Cameron and Nicholas Sarkozy, the then leaders of the UK and France respectively. Their armed...

    Zoe Adams, 19, has dressed up as a clown and put a pillow over Kieran Bewick's head to make their encounter more exhilarating on July 29 last year, Carlisle Crown Court heard. In what she described as an "overreaction", she whispered, "Trust me", to the then 17-year-old Bewick before stabbing him five times in the chest, arm and thigh with a 10-inch knife, collapsing his lung. Having seized Adams' iPhone, the court heard of images she had saved on the device, which included a blood-soaked woman with the caption "Murder is like a bag of chips: you can't stop after...
  • Roger Stone Spoke Privately w/DNC Hacker 'Guccifer 2.0' Prior To Election: Smoking Gun Report

    Roger Stone communicated privately with an entity directly involved in hacking the Democratic National Committee ahead of the 2016 White House race, The Smoking Gun has reported Mr. Stone, a veteran political consultant, swapped private Twitter messages last year with “Guccifer 2.0,” the website reported citing an unnamed source. If accurate, the allegation means Mr. Trump’s longtime confidante and one-time presidential campaign manager spoke in private with a persona intimately implicated in the operation that helped dash Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s chance at the White House, and would undeniably amplify existing concerns regarding Trump’s alleged ties to Russia. Indeed, the...

    Tabloid titan Jimmy Breslin — the cigar-chomping, hard-nosed newspaperman who won the Pulitzer Prize for his Daily News’ columns championing ordinary New Yorkers — has died, according to two friends of his family. He was 86. The cause of death was not immediately released. The curmudgeonly ink-stained wretch — whose velvety and witty writing style uplifted the downtrodden and eviscerated the scoundrels — crafted scores of columns for The News, Newsday, the New York Herald Tribune and New York Journal American.

    Hillary Clinton has a “Jekyll and Hyde” personality that left White House staffers scared stiff of her explosive — and even physical — outbursts, an ex-Secret Service officer claims in a scathing new tell-all. Gary Byrne, who was posted outside the Oval Office when Bill Clinton was president, portrays Hillary as too “erratic, uncontrollable and occasionally violent” to become leader of the free world He describes Hillary Clinton as acting friendly one moment, then raging the next.

    In an April 20 (given the deep connections between the Brotherhood and the Nazi Party, the date may not have been an accident) story in the Jerusalem Post, the question was asked, Will Qatar abandon the Muslim Brotherhood? As they put it, Qatar is the only country who openly supports the Muslim Brotherhood. This followed the pressure exerted on Qatar to do just that from its three Gulf neighbors, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates. Saudi Arabia even threatened a blockade should Qatar not comply. Clearly the Brotherhood, and their revolutionary aims, had been recognized as a threat...

    As most divorce cases usually are, the recently filed, already ugly divorce case between Congressman Alan Grayson and his with Lolita, has taken another turn for worse for the self-proclaimed "Congressman with Guts." During an interview with police over the recent incident at couples home in Orlando, Florida, in which Lolita Grayson accused the congressman of assaulting her, Grayson's soon-to-be ex-wife accused him of long-term spousal abuse. Orlando's WFTV Channel 9 obtained the audio of Lolita Grayson's interview with Police. "I'm done. My husband has always been hitting me for years," she told investigators. "He's been hitting me a lot....
  • City to end some police cooperation with immigration officials

    'The pernicious impact" of federal immigration enforcement "on certain communities in Philadelphia" is pushing the city to curtail police cooperation with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Public Safety Director Michael Resnick said Wednesday. At a City Council hearing packed to the balcony benches with immigrant-rights groups, Resnick said Mayor Nutter would soon sign an executive order barring police and prison officials from honoring immigration detainers except when a suspect in custody was previously convicted of a violent felony and ICE obtained a warrant to support the detainer request.

    “The violence in this country, especially as it effects African-American men and boys, is not a problem,” Mayor Michael Nutter said last night at a screening of the new film, Fruitvale Station. “It is an epidemic, it is a disease…. We need to do something about it.” Standing before a packed theater of invited guests from Philadelphia youth groups, including the Mayor’s Violence Prevention Workshop, the Youth Violence Reduction Partnership and other city and community initiatives, the Mayor introduced the film – a wrenching dramatizion of the events leading up to the New Year’s Day, 2009, shooting death of Oscar...

    Across the nation, demonstrators are rallying against yesterday's Florida verdict acquitting former neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin. Protests, vigils and rallies began in cities across the country just moments after a jury of six women found Zimmerman not guilty. Here in Philadelphia, those moved by the verdict gathered before midnight last night as part of a 17-hour vigil which began around 11:30 p.m. last night at the Municipal Services Building on Thomas Paine Plaza. Today, Sunday, July 14, at 6:00 p.m., supporters of Occupy Philadelphia have called for a rally at 15th and JFK...

    Philadelphia magazine published an article called Being White in Philly, with the subtitle, “Whites, race, class, and the things that never get said.” Apparently the Mayor of Philadelphia, Michael Nutter, thinks there’s not even a constitutional right to say those things; in a letter to the Philadelphia Human Relations Commission, the mayor argues, While I fully recognize that constitutional protections afforded the press are intended to protect the media from censorship by the government, the First Amendment, like other constitutional rights, is not an unfettered right, and notwithstanding the First Amendment, a publisher has a duty to the public to...

    Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter became the latest politician to speak out against the National Rifle Association’s proposal to put armed guards in every American school to dissuade incidents such as the horrific shooting massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., joining New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in his Mayors Against Illegal Guns initiative. Nutter, a staunch advocate of gun control, called the idea proposed by NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre a “dumb-ass idea.” Nutter, a Democrat, was speaking about a gunman who shot and killed two firefighters in Webster, N.Y., Monday after they arrived at a house fire....

A video recently posted on Youtube shows Pelosi speaking in May describing her first meeting with President Bush in the White House after becoming part of the Democratic House leadership.
  • Philly Mayor: Bad Spinach Gets More National Attention Than Black-on-Black Violence

    CNS News ^ | 4/3/12 | Penny Starr – Black-on-black violence is a “disease” that deserves a “national investigation,” Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter told a Youth Violence Prevention forum in Washington on Monday. “It is a disease,” Nutter said. “It’s a rash, and if there were a rash killing a hundred and some odd young people on a daily basis we’d be doing something about it.” Nutter said tainted food gets more attention than young people killing each other: “If there were five bad bags of spinach on the shelf somewhere, someone would put out a national alert. Every bag would be snatched off the shelves until...
  • Philadelphia Police Unmercifully Persecute Gun Owner For Just Obeying The Law

    Philadelphia anti gun rights Mayor Michael Nutter had better get the city’s checkbook ready as the result of the 18 month persecution of an innocent “Open Carry” gun owner. The ACLU and a local law firm have just filed a lawsuit against the City to protect a gun owner’s rights. The State of Pennsylvania issues concealed carry permits. Since it’s an open carry state, a person openly carrying a handgun in Philadelphia only needs a state issued carry permit. Mark Fiorino was confronted and held by police unlawfully three times over a year and a half period, and was once...

    Someone at long last has had the courage to tell the plain, honest truth about race. After mobs of young blacks rampaged through Philadelphia committing violence -- as similar mobs have rampaged through Chicago, Denver, Milwaukee and other places -- Philadelphia's black mayor, Michael A. Nutter, ordered a police crackdown and lashed out at the whole lifestyle of those who did such things. "Pull up your pants and buy a belt 'cause no one wants to see your underwear or the crack of your butt," he said. "If you walk into somebody's office with your hair uncombed and a pick...
