Turkey fires its first shots: Ankara bombs Kurdish supply route in preparation for invasion to create a 'peace corridor' along its border on day after Trump pulls US troops from the area, despite claiming 'we haven't abandoned the Kurds'


Todd Juvinall

So Jiggy-Pooh, sounds like you want us to go to war with Turkey. Why don't you volunteer or send your kids to help the Kurds?

The Trump administration’s trade policies are not raising prices of goods for U.S. consumers. And business margins are improving, suggesting that some of the adjustment pains from moving supply-chains out of China are in the rearview mirror.

Prices for goods in the U.S. fell by four-tenths of a percentage point in September, after following a half percentage point in August, three months after tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese imports rose from 10 percent to 25 percent, the Labor Department said Tuesday. Excluding the volatile food and energy categories, prices for goods were down in the month on a seasonally adjusted basis.



Jig Wiggly

Nobody expects you to understand the larger picture here. Save yourself some humiliation, put a sock in it, and sit this one out. With all your free time, keep looking for your Cal SCOTUS.

Steven Frisch

Not even the President can cite the parameters of US troop withdrawal, obviously, since he did not coordinate his announcement with Congress, the JCS, State, Defense, or CENTCOM.

I short, the President just blurted it out and now all of the institutional entities that normally plan, consider ramifications, provide advise about, and implement such actions are stuck catching up with the whim of der Führer.

This is what happens when a nation gradually slips under the control of the Führerprinzip. It's also what happens when stupid, misguided, or like minded people go along with authoritarian anti-American governance and empower a Führer.

Almost one in three REPUBLICANS back impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump in dramatic new poll that says 49 per cent of Americans want him removed from office



Bring it jiggered Jeffy,,, Trump won't be removed.
Name the 2/3ds of the Senate that will.


This your winning liar?

J. Barron

Well put Steve,
I've spent the morning researching and looking for the parameters of our emergency troop withdrawal. It seems to be something like, "The Turks are coming, get out the way." This is what happens when foreign "policy" is a fluid construct bouncing around inside the head of a single aged man; and that man is completely incapable of articulating said policy. Kind of scary. His finger is on the button.

Posted by: Walt | 08 October 2019 at 10:38 AM

I believe that Walt's conventional position is the most likely....but....

Let's be clear, most elected Republicans can't stand Trump. He is a thrice married, pussy grabbing, New York, amoral, self serving, corrupt, criminal who is perverting what the Republican party has stood for for the last 50 years.

Sure there a several brainwashed mouthpieces..Meadows, Jordan, Nunes, et al...but the rank and file elected merely tolerate Trump to hold on to power.

As soon as 60% of Americans support removal from office they will abandon him to try to save their own skin...the question is solely, is there enough to get to that 60%

J. Barron

Walt 10:38-
That is beside the point. What is happening is classic rope a dope where Trump is being kept off balance and having to be on the defensive side of the argument. He hates that. There is little doubt that, technically, he will not be removed, but with the numbers where they are, few Pubbers are going to stick their political necks out to support his positions. Trump is a proven quitter and when people don't love hm as much as he thinks he deserves, I can see him simply walking away from the job with some face-saving sour grapes excuse. Like Todd, it's never his fault. Just ask him.


It's also what happens when stupid, misguided, or like minded people go along with authoritarian anti-American governance and empower a Führer.

If only he was Negro Brown instead of Day Glo Orange……..then you wouldn't have to see him at all would you Steve?!

Indeed….if you dumbfucks hadn't decided to follow the Republicans "Bob Dole….It's His Turn Now" principle and nominated anybody other than Felonia Von Pantsuit then none of this unpleasantness would have been necessary!

You have no one to blame but yourselves…….

Dayshift have you called Pelosis office to tell her to formally start the impeachment process or are you just going to sit there and keep jerking off with sand?

Jig Wiggly

Pelosi is a wise. shrewd old prune. She'll wring this out as long as she can and for all it is worth. She is a master at this game and those who underestimate her are going to get their lunch eaten.

As usual you moron you never answer the question. But go straight to namecalling. You have no clue about the middle east so I suggest rather than further embarrassment for you total ignorance you go back to your bridge and shut you huge pie hole. I know more about the issues than you will ever be able to understand. That is why you lash out as your ignorance is exposed on all this stuff. What a numbskull you troll.

If I recall the left was all in posting the daily death toll of our troops to get the people PO'd and force their withdrawal. Now they are all in for keeping those men and women there. I think Jiigy-Pooh etal are schizo.

Paul Emery


Can you provide some documentation as to the "Millions and millions of people jumping onto the Trump Train" ?

George Rebane

re StevenF's 1023am - Absence of evidence to the contrary, I have to agree with Frisch's assessment of how the troop withdrawal came about. But his usual diatribe about the "Führerprinzip" is also off the wall and without supporting evidence. Whether we agree with Trump's process or not, the Constitution allows him to do what he's doing, the rest is ongoing progressive narrative.

On the other hand, wonder why no leftie has stepped forward to comment on Newsom's latest shot in the shorts to California's public schools. What are we to make of such crickets? (And one could ask about 100 more of such sounds of silence.)

Jig Wiggly

Todd 12:11 -

Links? Links? Links? Anything from Juvinall's mouth are to be considered empty, hollow lies without evidence to the contrary..

Right now I'm hearing as many pissed off Pubbers as Progressives wailing about Trump deserting our allies. The only ones to profit are Trump and his family. Trying to make it a partisan issue is part and parcel with you and Walt. It simply isn't true.

If you think I care what you say you are sorely mistaken. You are a troll and I am a real person posting my real name. I am easy to find and I have a large local following as well as outside the area. You have none. I suggest you post your real name so we can debate as people. So get some nards if you are a guy and come debate or STFU troll.

I am really enjoying these posts. I spent 10 days in Beijing (北京) about 5 years ago and I’m looking forward to going back to China for a longer stay at some point soon. Keep posting…these are very interesting.

jeff pelline says:

October 2, 2019 at 3:51 am


I remember your trip to 北京. I landed in Bejing this afternoon and will stay until the end of the week. This is my second trip to mainland China (Shanghai in November 2018). And Shannon and I visited Hong Kong in March. China fascinates me. Being here for the People’s Republic #70 has been a hassle from a traveling standpoint (more traffic jams and crowds than usual) but a rich and unique learning experience.

We’ve been fortunate to have traveled a lot (Mexico, Canada, Caribbean, Europe, Australia/New Zealand, South America). But until we visited Tokyo in November 2015, we hadn’t been to Asia much. The dynamics of the region and its relationship with the U.S. become much clearer when viewed firsthand. There is much more to it than the “us” versus “them” narrative we are exposed too. And it becomes clear how Trump and Navarro are not them best “team” for “us.”

I lived in the International House (of Pancakes?) when I went to Cal in 1976-81 — during the Iranian hostage crisis, no less. I have made lifetime friends with foreign students I met at Cal, including ones from Asia. It’s was an important educational experience. We have exposed our son to a lot of world travel too. “The State of Jefferson” is God’s gift to nature but not the best place to form a world view.

BTW, Shannon and Mitchell are touring out-of-state colleges this week, including a stop in Chicago (my alma mater Northwestern and University of Chicago). We included Rice U. in Houston into the mix, and he liked it (a strong engineering program). Also going East.

Our families are in different directions this week. Thank goodness for Jackie, our dog sitter. Ha! Exciting times.

Exciting times indeed…….

(For big yucks check out Jigglys thread over at the Sierra Foothills Catbox and read of Steves passionate longing for Chinese like authoritarian powers……he hides it well but still comes through!)


Frisch und freunde come here and say tsk tsk tsk... you're all racist... all the time he's been running a tidy little non-profit that, by all appearances, would have passed muster under the Nuremberg Laws in the 1930's.

In the "lock'em up lock'em up" category: the White House today has written a letter to Congress refusing to cooperate with the impeachment inquiry in any way..contrary to what the Constitution of the United States empowers Congress to conduct and the executive branch to comply with. Does obstruction of justice ring a bell?

Would this be treason under the name of republican partisanship?


Obstruction of Justice? Bobby... the justice department doesn't have anything to do with the machinations of Congress here, and nothing the Shiffter does is even handed.

Bring up the impeachment to a vote of the House, Nancy. And then move forward, with the GOP having a seat at the table.

Bohai Harvest RST (BHR), a private equity firm bankrolled by the Chinese government, is weighing how and if it should explain its relationship with Hunter Biden, the youngest son of former Vice President Joe Biden.

Jiggy-Pooh 300pm, then you are not a resident here and do not know anything or anyone local or our history. I thought so.

Frisch is actually practicing what his commie pals do to over a billion humans. To have such a wonderful feeling for the authoritarian fascist communist ideologies is really over the top. Hell a NBA owner said Go Freedom to the Hong Kong protestors and the Chicoms turned off all NBA games from TV. Where are Frisch, Pelline, Emery, and Jiggy0Boo on that? Crickets. My guess is those lovelies will blame Trump. Just wait!

Not an official process until there is a vote bub. And Schiff won't allow R's to ask questions or be in a closed hearing. Now all you do is whine about Transparency and yet your people won't allow it. I suggest you write a letter asking your lover Schiff to open these hearing so Americans can see and hear them.

While schiff for brains and botox Nancy are doing a kabuki dance things get worse for team 0 -

However, based on what he has been finding, Durham has expanded his investigation adding agents and resources, the senior administration officials said. The timeline has grown from the beginning of the probe through the election and now has included a post-election timeline through the spring of 2017, up to when Robert Mueller was named special counsel.

Attorney General Bill Barr and Durham traveled to Italy recently to talk to law enforcement officials there about the probe and have also had conversations with officials in the U.K. and Australia about the investigation, according to multiple sources familiar with the meetings.

Sol Wisenberg says whistleblower complaint is effort to discredit John Durham's investigation
Certain segments of the intelligence community and the Democratic Party are 'scared to death' of what U.S. Attorney John Durham will find, says Fox News contributor Sol Wisenberg, former deputy independent counsel.

Barr assigned Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, back in May to conduct the inquiry into alleged misconduct and improper surveillance of the Trump campaign in 2016, as well as whether Democrats were the ones who'd improperly colluded with foreign actors.

The attorney "is gathering information from numerous sources, including a number of foreign countries. At Attorney General Barr’s request, the president has contacted other countries to ask them to introduce the attorney general and Mr. Durham to appropriate officials," Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said last month.

Durham, known as a "hard-charging, bulldog" prosecutor, according to a source, has been focusing on the use and assignments of FBI informants, as well as alleged improper issuance of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants. Durham was asked to help Barr to "ensure that intelligence collection activities by the U.S. government related to the Trump 2016 presidential campaign were lawful and appropriate."

"Bring up the impeachment to a vote of the House, Nancy. And then move forward, with the GOP having a seat at the table."

You are a very gullible and sadly mistaken man to believe Nancy does anything haphazardly. Every day public support for impeachment grows stronger, and The Donald just keeps digging his hole deeper with his tweets and stonewalling. Nancy is holding impeachment just out of reach like a carrot on a string. She is a master at this. When she feels the public furor has reached a crescendo, she'll let the guillotine fly. This is not about kicking Trump out of office, it about building public perception and the next election. Every minute of this is premeditated and choreographed.

Of course she thought doing it this way would make the water torture last long enough to get Trump the 1000 Cuts they need to wound him enough to beat in Nov 2020 while keeping the House majority in grips of the DP Party. But the subpoenas are something less than real subpoenas, and the Dem's will just have to stomp their little feets in anger. "ooooh, that makes me mad!"

Bill Tozer

Afternoon, gents. Boy, VDH is on a typing terror lately. These great articles seem to fly off his fingertips by the hour.

‘Groundbreaking’ disclosures fall apart, hoaxes are exposed, the media are discredited, over and over and over again.
What do the Kavanaugh hearings, Jussie Smollett, the Covington kids, the Mueller investigation, and now the Trump phone call all have in common?

“Staged melodrama, media collusion hysteria, progressive demands that justice be served immediately, promises of walls-are-closing-in blockbuster revelations from new witnesses, supposed surprise revelatory documents, fusions between Democratic politicians and Washington bureaucrats — and then bust, nada, and teeth-gnashing as the truth catches up to various rumor-mongers.

“The disgraced purveyors of lies — a Christine Blasey Ford, Michael Avenatti, Nathan Phillips, Jussie Smollet, Adam Schiff — for a time go mute, content with progressives’ praise that they lied for a moral cause and almost pulled it off.

“The particular narrative is not all that important, at least compared with a general overriding theme: We are in a virtual civil war, and the Left believes that it can win over the hearts and minds of 20 to 30 percent of the swing voters in the United States with therapeutic tales of racism, sexism, unearned white privilege, and right-wing greed and selfishness, and also by destroying the elected president. Particular events in the news are warped and twisted, to the degree that they can be, to serve that narrative — on the principle that the superior moral end of ensuring a radical equality of result more than justifies the often tawdry and dishonest means to achieve it.........................

“When it is all over, there are no apologies and no contriteness, just a shrug. After all, if it wasn’t true, it could have been, or it reflected a higher moral truth, and lying for noble ends justifies the means. In fact, those who call out the rumor-mongers, sanctimonious scolds, and political hacks are usually themselves damned as racists, homophobes, Stalinists, Trump robots, conspiracy theorists, or any such slur deemed useful in projectionist fashion to deflect their own culpability.

“So here we are, on the eve of impeaching a president on the basis of disgruntled White House staffers, whose rumors in secondhand and thirdhand fashion were passed on to a “whistleblower” who worked hand in hand with partisan lawyers and Adam Schiff to circumvent the normal whistleblower protocols and smear a president.

“And we will all shrug and grow quiet — at least until the next Blasey Ford, Michael Avenatti, Jussie Smollett, Nathan Philipps, dream-team, all-star star chamber, James Comey, or “anonymous” crusading “whistleblower” comes forth to seek notoriety and do his yeoman’s work to rid the country of Trump and all his odious henchmen.

“Meanwhile, they have no idea of the wreckage they have inflicted on the intelligence agencies, the media, the Democratic party, themselves, and the country — or much less why a growing number of Americans are sick of them all.”


Don Bessee

The juggernaut of a campaign has raised the most money ever -

Now, Trump has a roaring reelection apparatus. There are six main committees working to secure his second term, including the official campaign, the Republican National Committee and a super PAC. Together, they have already raised over $736 million - more than any previous presidential candidate at this point in the campaign.

Trump is armed with a bigger reelection operation than his predecessors had at this stage in their campaigns.

By this point in 2011, the official committees working toward President Barack Obama's second term had raised at least $390 million - a little over half of what Trump has now, campaign filings show.

During the 2016 campaign, one way Trump saved money was by leveraging his celebrity, bombast and larger-than-life personality to attract coverage in the media.

"He was on TV all the time," said Alex Conant, GOP strategist and senior adviser to Rubio's 2016 campaign. It "turned out to be a brilliant strategy, and one that doesn't require much campaign infrastructure - just a cellphone and proximity to a TV camera."

Trump still enjoys those advantages. But he now has internal polling, a system to test messages on Facebook to figure out what ads resonate most with voters and a rapid-response team tasked with mounting a public relations offensive at a moment's notice.

Some perspective for the ignorant trolls peddling the socialist dem party line -

The Pentagon stated on Monday that Turkey has been removed from the “air tasking order” employed by members of the anti-Islamic State coalition operating in Syria.

This means Turkish planes will have considerable difficulty entering Syrian airspace to support the invasion threatened by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and will not benefit from surveillance data collected by the coalition.

“If you’re not on the air tasking order, it’s really hard to coordinate flights in that area,” explained Pentagon spokeswoman Carla Gleason.

Fake news redux - "Billionaires paid less in taxes than the working class last year for the first time in U.S. history, a study found."
"The wealthiest 400 families had a 23 percent tax rate, compared to the bottom half of households, which had a 24.2 percent tax rate."
Ah - 'rate' not 'amount'.
"Jason Furman, an economist at Harvard, told the Post that the study is misleading because it doesn't include refundable tax credits, thus making tax burdens appear higher than they really are."
Well, yeah - but how many of the filthy rich bought Teslas and got a rebate on that purchase, huh?
So - what actual amount did the wealthiest top 1% actually pay vs the lower working class?

You are a short sighted fool. This has NOTHING to do with impeachment or kicking Trump out of office. It is entirely about building public perception and paving the way to Trump's loss in 2020. The longer you people think this is about impeachment, the longer Nancy has to swirl Trump into the drain by framing him as someone who has something to hide from the American people. He and his ego are playing directly into her hands. The more times Trump stonewalls, the more imbedded the public perception. That you can't see that befuddles me. But it makes me happy to.

In the 'truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth" category: Trumpler only made 66 false claims last week. During the last 13 weeks he has averaged 60 false claims per week putting his total since taking office somewhere near 13,000. But it's all fake news, and deep state shenanigans, and media lies. Now the intelligence community is out to get him so he is cutting funding on executive oversight within those agencies. Nothing to hide folks, don't worry, it's not obstruction of justice to ignore the Constitution because all these people are conspiring to oust the Don and they are all bad people...every one of them..not a patriot in the bunch. The only real patriots are the yes men he has surrounded himself with in the administration who do what the Don tells them to do.. disagree and YOU'RE FIRED. So far 66 high ranking appointees have either been fired or resigned due to conflicts with the Don.

Looks like she used her secret weapon. Samson and Delilah. You show me yours and I'll show you mine. Nothing new under the Sun or under the sheets.

This is the guy you support being President of the United States. This is his opinion of the Kurds. The man is mentally ill and ignorant but he's your guy George as you've stated over and over again

"Trump on the Kurds: "They didn't help us in the Second World War, they didn't help us with Normandy, as an example." He suggests that they battled alongside U.S. forces for "their land," and adds, "With all of that being said, we like the Kurds."


Jig Wiggly

Trump "Does not endorse" Turkish invasion of Syria after we open the gates by removing our troops. WTF does "does not endorse" mean? WTF "does does not endorse" mean to a 26 year old Kurdish man who has spent his entire life defending American ideals and (should we mention) American soldiers and American hard assets (oil refineries)?

This boy who has had our backs, must be happy to know Trump has his while a bayonet goes into it.

Those of you support Trump and his notions of being an American president can go to hell. He does not represent THIS American, and Rebane is welcome to ban me from his site for speaking my mind against you bastards who believe otherwise.

Notable quotables from Peter Suderman, Jim Geraghty, Hillary Clinton, and more.

Political Editors · Oct. 9, 2019

Insight: “It is not the fact of liberty but the way in which liberty is exercised that ultimately determines whether liberty itself survives.” —Dorothy Thompson (1894-1961)

Sad but true: “Trump is president, and he has allowed the deficit to soar beyond the increases that were already projected to happen. And Republicans in Congress have reacted with muted concern at best, and more like a collective shrug. Trillion-dollar deficits under a Democrat were a national emergency. Trillion-dollar deficits under Trump are no biggie. It’s almost like the real problem, for many Republicans, wasn’t the deficit.” —Peter Suderman

For the record: “Corporate America doesn’t care if their products, ads, or messaging offend you, insult you, belittle you or demonize you. They’ll stand up to your complaints every time. But the moment an employee offends the Chinese government, they pee themselves and beg and grovel for mercy.” —Jim Geraghty

Good question: “Hey, Adam Schiff… How can an anonymous whistle-blower be receiving death threats if they are anonymous? You are so used to lying you don’t even know what comes out of your mouth anymore.” —Ryan Fournier

Food for thought: “What if the whistleblower had once worked for Biden? That would be wild.” —David Harsanyi

Braying jenny: “Maybe there does need to be a rematch. I mean, obviously I can beat him again.” —Hillary Clinton

Braying jackass: “I hope that in this country people who say that they’re Jesus-loving, God-loving, that they pay more attention to God-loving, Jesus-loving people on this side of the border with brown skin that are desperate, that are being treated cruelly by this president because he clearly doesn’t care about them.” —Julian Castro, who should have been arrested for human trafficking after bringing illegals across the border

And last… “Think about how China is reacting to a single tweet sent by a guy in Texas. Now imagine what it’s like to be an actual citizen of that country, entirely subject to its government’s whims. In conclusion, communism is bad. Very, very bad.” —Matt Walsh

Paul Emery

The Repubs should be responsible for nominating someone else to replace him of force him to resign. Otherwise he will either be impeached for various reasons or surely be defeated in the election bu the Dems. What in your view should we do about it? Glad you're concerned.


Posted by: Paul Emery | 09 October 2019 at 07:12 PM

It doesn't appear that the republicans have any plans to nominate anyone else. If you are certain that he'll be defeated in the next election why beat the drum for impeachment?


Punchy 712pm

It takes a special disconnect from Reality to expect the GOP, who overwhelmingly approve of President Trump (in the vicinity of 85%), to do the work of the Democrats to force him out of the oval orifice.

No, you'll just have to run a Dem against him and hope for the best.

If you don't think Quid Pro Joe or Fauxcahontas are up to the job, Hillary sounds like she's tanned, rested and ready.
