Many senators had deep reservations about Paul's amendment, which would have caused the authorizations to expire within six months and compelled Congress to take new votes on ongoing military operations in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Yemen and elsewhere.

....ouch....

"It is difficult to talk to people who confuse Austria and Australia. But there is nothing we can do about this; this is the level of political culture among part of the American establishment. As for the American people, America is truly a great nation if the Americans can put up with so many politically uncivilised people."

Vladimir Putin

Wow. Even though I have just written a commentary on the level of frustration and, frankly, contempt, the Russians are feeling towards their American counterparts, these words by Vladimir Putin are truly a slap in the face that will resonate around the world for a long time to come even if the imperial corporate media makes another herculean effort at not noticing them. I can only repeat what I said in my previous article, I have never ever heard anything even remotely resembling the kind of language coming out of Russia today.


....and just to be sure I gots my point across...

But the real story is the change in Russian rhetoric. It will be mostly lost on westerners who have long given up on taking what politicians say seriously and who are used to all sorts of antics from their leaders. But in a culture in which words count (and that includes all of Asia for starters) this change of tone will be immediately understood for what it is: the equivalent of a medieval slap in the face, a deliberate sign of disrespect and even a sign of total contempt and disgust.

The most inspiring part about that was that it came immediately after this:

http://dailycaller.com/2017/09/13/hillary-says-no-absolution-for-women-who-didnt-vote-for-her/

Don't believe me? Watch the video at the end of the article. No follow-up from Cooper. No calling her on her egotistic tunnelvision. Just let it stand and move to Yoga and breathing. Hillary is centered, y'all.

....lord thundering jaysus, that ego simply has no bounds does it ?....which I guess makes it infinite....wow that is big....

...and Trump is supposed to be the egotistical nutcase...

Trump insists on repeatedly listing his electoral college numbers.
Hillary insists on repeating her flawed polling numbers.
The election that will not die.

I think it's great. Let Hillary re-live her loss a thousand times.

Piers Morgan;

By the time I'd finished wading through Hillary's absurdly self-indulgent tome, I felt like I'd been lowered into a large vat of violently indignant, furiously self-justifying, boiling mad spittle.


Hillary is doing herself no favors with this prolonged, agonizing Loser tour.
In fact, with every new appearance she makes to complain ever more bitterly about the unfairness of her defeat, and to blame an ever longer list of people other than herself for it, she is further diminished.
More worryingly for the Democrats, what she is doing is causing huge damage to the party's chances of rebounding from the catastrophe of last November.
Hillary has become a walking, whining by-word for political disaster and carries with her an overpowering stench of electoral death.
This book is thus utterly pointless.
Nobody wants to hear any more about 'what happened'.
It happened, and we all know why. End.
Now please Hillary, for the love of God, just accept you blew it and shut up

@Scott, Hillary is going to save Republicans and future elections from the evil Russians that meddled and did her in. She said so on CNN, so it must be true.

The Pentagon is on a spending spree as it scrabbles to amass vast quantities of Soviet-style weapons and ammunition. But it’s running into problems sourcing them, and is using misleading legal documents to disguise their final destination: Syria.

copperhead making deals with democrats.

Somehow everyone should have known or seen this coming.

The DACA business is not something they should keep getting wrong. The congress and senate should do their jobs and fix it. That don't mean deporting anyone, actually get together and fix it.

The repub's are going to feel stupid when somehow copperhead comes to a negotiations with their political enemy.

"good times"

Oh and by the way or AnyWho-----------word on the street last night was that quadfocals had trouble stepping up to that platform where cotton-top sits to do his nightly "show".

Just so you all know, I have essentially been fired as a mod. Please do not reach out to me, or expect me to help resolve anything else on this board, especially this thread, where I felt I put a lot of effort into keeping things civil. But apparently others did not feel the same way.
