Bibi Netanyahu shows ignorance of modern electronics.

“There are many things that can happen now that could never have happened before,” Trump said during a visit to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s home. “We must seize them together. We must take advantage of the situation,” he told the prime minister, who welcomed him warmly and gave him a 150-year-old Bible as a present."


How old fashioned. Wasn't a CD of the 150 year old bible available.

WSJ says there's been an arrest in connection with the Manchester bombing. Also the name of one of the dead has been released, an 18-year-old woman.


I keep seeing Manchester referred to as a "tragedy". It's not. A tragedy would have been an explosion caused by a gas leak. This was an attack, an act of war, an abomination.

MANCHESTER, England (AP) — The Latest on the blast at an Ariana Grande concert in northern England (all times local):

12:01 p.m.

Greater Manchester Police say they have arrested a 23-year-old man in connection with the apparent suicide bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in the city.


Police say the man was arrested in south Manchester Tuesday, a day after the explosion killed 22 people and injured 59, many of them teenagers.

They did not provide details.

Police also said officials arrested a man at the Arndale shopping center in central Manchester — but that the arrest is not believed to be connected to Monday night’s attack.


11:50 a.m.

Italian Premier Paolo Gentiloni says efforts are underway so that this week’s G-7 summit in Sicily will yield a stronger, common anti-terrorism commitment.

Condemning the bombing that killed 22 people in Manchester, England, Gentiloni told reporters Tuesday in Rome that the summit on Friday and Saturday provides the opportunity to insist that “the cowardliness that snuffs out the lives of young people won’t get the better of our freedom.”

He said Italians can count on the “dedication and professionalism” of their nation’s security forces to ensure international events are carried out safely.

He says he planned to call British Prime Minister Theresa May to express “closeness, solidarity” to Britons.


11:45 a.m.

Police have evacuated a large shopping center in Manchester, England. Police declined to comment on media reports that they have arrested a man there.

July McKenzie, who was shopping when the Arndale shopping center, said: “We were just in the shop and could hear people screaming and security guards telling everybody to get out.”

Some people left the scene in tears, while others waited outside the mall.

The Arndale center was rebuilt after an IRA bombing in 1996.


11:35 a.m.

Turkish officials say they “strongly condemn” the attack in Manchester and promised to work together with the United Kingdom against terror. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says that Turkey “shares the pain of the state of England and the English people” in the attack that killed 22 people.

Turkey has been hit by a string of attacks blamed on the Islamic State group and Kurdish militants since 2015, killing at least 550 people.


11:15 a.m.

British Prime Minister Theresa May says that it is “beyond doubt” that Britain and the city of Manchester have fallen victim to “a callous terrorist attack.”

Speaking outside her offices in London, she says “Although it is not the first time Manchester has suffered in this way, it is the worst attack the city has experienced, and the worst ever to hit the north of England.”

May says police believe they know the attacker’s identity but are not disclosing it immediately.


11:10 a.m.

British Prime Minister Theresa May says police and security staff in Manchester believe they know identity of the apparent suicide bomber who attacked people leaving an Ariana Grande concert Monday night, but they are not revealing the name for the time being.

Speaking in London, May said: “This attack stands out for its appalling, sickening cowardice.”

She says the attack, in which 22 people died, was one of the worst the nation had suffered.


11:00 a.m.

Harun Khan, the secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain, has joined the condemnations of the Manchester attack.

In a statement, Khan says: “This is horrific, this is criminal. May the perpetrators face the full weight of justice both in this life and the next.”

He adds: “I urge all those in the region and around the country to pool together to support those affected.” "

Exactly, exdem.

And already last night i started seeing the stupid peace sign pictures on Facebook.

And of course on the news this morning, the latest report was that British audorities believed they have ID'd the bomber but won't release the name. I wonder why?

And I wonder, if the bomber was a Brexit supporter, would they still be refusing to release the name? Of course, i don't wonder at all..


some interesting comments from the bartender who was the last person to see seth rich alive.



Still catching up, so excuse if this has been mentioned.

China’s gift to Germany: a giant statue of Marx Taipei Times 5-23-17

"In China, “there are two completely different voices in the debate” over the statue..."

“One is that Germany is now a wholly capitalist state that has abandoned Marxism. Sending the statue is tantamount to sending his ideas back to try to reignite the spark of revolution,” he said in an interview.
“The other is that Marx’s theory of class struggle had a very negative effect on China,” he said. “Sending the statue is symbolically returning defective goods.”

"What China means is: We’re sending it back to you. We don’t believe in it,” user Wu Jia said."


I got such a laugh out of this. Good for them. Return to sender :)

I wrote years ago wondering why China would allow themselves to fall for a European import ideology.


Ah, our Clarice is quoted in this 5-19-17 article. "Seth Rich, Craig Murray and the Sinister Stewards of the National Security State" by Mike Whitney.

A commenter at Zerohedge - DNC Affiliates Increase Involvement In Seth Rich Case After Wheeler Claims wrote this and linked to the above: "Mike Whitney is an independent journalist who frequently writes for a left-wing website (Counterpunch) and has no love for Donald Trump. However, I think he describes the present situation pretty well."

Seems even some lefties are beginning to see the light and Clarice's writing made a difference.

Interesting that Craig Murray says both the DNC and Podesta email leaks were leaks by Americans, not hacked.


According to an Althouse comment, the scum David Leavitt, meantioned at 6:54am, who joked about the Manchester attack, had this to say about the Quebec Mosque shooting: "This tragic Quebec city shooting is a hate crime and terrorist attack on Muslims. Keep saying Trump's fearmongering has no effect." Seems he took that attack more seriously than the nail-bombing of children.


Sorry, messed that up. This is all I meant to paste:

President's partial comment on Manchester, which I am posting because he is branding again:

"We stand in absolute solidarity with the people of the United Kingdom. So many young, beautiful, innocent people living and enjoying their lives murdered by evil losers in life. I won’t call them monsters, because they would like that term. They would think that’s a great name. I will call them from now on ‘losers’, because that’s what they are, they’re losers. And we’ll have more of them. But they’re losers, just remember that.”"

Both the sultan and harun khan can go (redact) themselves.


Has anyone or group claimed responsibility? It seems Manchester blocked out Hannity's Seth Rich reporting. We should be hearing from Kim Dotcom today.

I read on Twitter that ISIS said it was them and there would be more, but I cannot verify that independently.

It's a shame this #$%^&* wasn't at the Ariana Grande Concert

The responses to Pinnette were more pointed than usual although his latest exercise in missing the point isn't an outlier.


Isn't Arianna Grande the little bitch that said she hated America and Americans while soft-porning a doughnut and her skinny jeaned fruitcake lover?


The teachable moment of BOzo's reaction to the Ft. Hood massacre a year after his election in 2008.




Miss Marple the Deplorable


Good one. Truthfully, there is so much garbage put out that you have to read carefully and wait.

There was a supposed screen cap of an ISIS threat about Manchester made 4 hours before the bombing. What it a real screen cap? I have no way of knowing.

Then someone else posted a screen cap of a threat for more attacks. Was THAT real? No way of knowing.

Every time there is a terrorist attack all sorts of disinformation and misinformation gets posted. Since I have no method of determining which is truth, I only report generalities from Twitter and hope people realize I am not claiming them to be accurate.

My other choice is to not report any of it, which maybe I should do. Hard to know which is more helpful.

No that is not her. I forget the little creep's name but not Arianna Grande.




Ariana Grande Says "I Hate Americans. I Hate America." After Appearing to Lick On-Display Doughnuts



I was just looking it up, JIB.

I was pretty sure it was her.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Marine One has arrived with the President at Tel Aviv airport. Bibi, Sara and Rivkin there to say farewell. Next stop is Pope Che.

Jim Eagle


Apologies, I am wrong it was Arianna Grande. For some reason I thought it was another name.


I was pretty sure it was her.

Probably more than one of these spoiled brat pop stars who say stuff like that. There was also a story from a couple of years ago where she was quoted as saying "I wish my %@!# fans would die." She's a real piece of work, not that it's really relevant to this story.


Thanks rse. I'm still waiting to hear from my sister.


With young daughters I am forced to remember all these stupid names so I can fight for their morality, JIB.

My girls will say, "this song is inappropriate" and change the station when I'm drive them and their friends places. Some of their BFFs think I'm a total prude, but my girls back me up and say, "his car, his rules," or "My dad says that any song we wouldn't play or sing around our grandmother is probably a song we shouldn't listen to in the first place.

I don't pretend that they don't listen to this garbage when I'm not around, but I do make sure they understand it is pure entertainment from these punks and nothing else.


marlene-i have relatives who have been through that training so this is not quite a stranger offer.


She's a real piece of work, not that it's really relevant to this story.

I forgot to mention why I brought it up.

It is an example of the protected Hollywood class finding out that despite their privilege and their use of that privilege as a platform to denounce the same people that Muzzies hate, they are hated by the Muzzies as well.

Will this be a stepping stone for them to wise up and quit being tools?

I doubt it.


That's an understatement 45 million dead yes that would qualify as a negative reaction, although it's not unheard of the taipinh of the 19th century was fairly bloody

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Well, TK, this trip has done one thing. My daughter came in yesterday and we talked about this trip and how important it was.

And she said that she thought that "Huma person" has infiltrated the democrats and that is why they were so anti-Israel.

Weiner was what got us started, because she said NO ONE would have believed that whole story, but it was true.

Anyway, I pointed out to her that Weiner was Jewish and how odd it was that Huma had married him and that got her started.

There is hope.

James D

Will this be a stepping stone for them to wise up and quit being tools?

No. No, it won't.


More suspicious, Huma married a Chuck Schumer protege, destined to advance in Democrat politics.

[Editor’s note: I declined to say up and coming]


Yes it might as well be Katy Perry, who spoke of haram thoughts they targeted that location right years ago

James D

sbw, in case you had any last lingering doubts about AP:



Isn't Arianna Grande the little bitch that said she hated America and Americans while soft-porning a doughnut and her skinny jeaned fruitcake lover?

That is precisely her alright; until yesterday her claim to fame was being the donut-licking girl.

Miss Marple the Deplorable


To me, the #1 sign that she was an enemy agent is that NOT ONE Muslim cleric, official, or group spoke out about that marriage. In other families, this would have inspired an honor killing. Instead, oh, well, no big deal.

The second red flag was when Michelle Bachmann caught all of that flack from people in Congress, especially John McCain, for questioning why Humma Abedin got access to high level intelligence. Bachmann ended up not running for another term.

From the Wikileaks emails it appeared that Abedin and Cheryl Mills were Hillary's gatekeepers. I think Abedin was a minder, myself. She was always around, hovering over Hillary and yet never granting any interviews.

Nothing to see here, of course. If you question this you are an Islamaphobe, never mind that she had close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.


I can see clearly now that the rain is gone.

Janet 🚬

I wonder if leftists will be blaming Ariana Grande for provoking an attack.

Has Garry Trudeau weighed in? Perhaps some "little guy" Islamic fanatics are just "punching up" against the powerful....like they did with the Charlie Hebdo massacre.

Has Tom Brokaw weighed in?
From Meet the Press 4-21-13 - "He (Brokaw) said Americans need to take a hard look at “the roots” of why so many Muslims, including Americanized terrorists like the Tsarnaev brothers in Boston, want to kill them."


mom wouldn't let me listen to this one either.


Isn't Arianna Grande the little bitch that said she hated America and Americans while soft-porning a doughnut and her skinny jeaned fruitcake lover?

And 20,000 people showed up help her stay wealthy. Fools that have a taste for crap.


I woke up this morning to Trump speaking in Israel and something occurred to me. Trump speaks to everyone and encourages everyone to band together to win. I think it is a wonderful strategy. He tells the Palestinian head that he too can win as well as all the Arab leaders. He puts everyone on the same team against the losers that are terrorists.

Obama always made sure he was speaking to his secret buds and the good guys could go to hell. He never talked about unity of purpose.

It's like if you had a bunch of people who hated each other swimming in the pond. You can band together to fight off Gary the alligator or you can hope Gary gets your enemies.

I'm impressed with the simplicity of his strategy.


Janet, Tom Brokaw is befuddled.

“The roots” of Islamic terrorists arise of the fact they try kill those who choose different ways of life.

The roots of why I would defend myself against radical Islamic terrorists arise from their desire to kill me.


My son says Arianna Grande has a wonderful voice with perfect pitch. Says she has matured.

I suspect she matured yesterday.

Miss Marple the Deplorable


Ever since the 70's there has always been crap music for that age group. The difference is that now the evil people have replaced David Cassidy.

There seems to me to be a deliberate attempt to poison kids' thinking. rse has documented the educational side, but it's also cultural.

I first noticed this when my daughter was in the upper grades of elementary school. All of a sudden the dresses for her age group seemed way too "adult", with low-cut necklines and tight bodices and such, looking more like miniature hustler dresses.

I also noticed a change in cartoons and the Disney Channel, because after my daughter quit watching them I then had babysitting duty with my son's children. Many of the live action shows on Disney featured kids who operated without any parental authority or even interaction, like they were mini adults.

The music got decidedly more vulgar, and then horrible people became teenage icons.

It's been going on for 30 years, and it's something parents should be aware of.

Story at Drudge pegs the cost of single payer health care in CA at $400 billion.
CA's current budget IIRC is about $90 billion.
And when the stock market bubble crashes it's budget will be about $60 billion.
Since this plainly impossible scheme will not deter most progs, let me say there is still hope for CA. Collectivists always plant the seeds of their own destruction.

re latest Entous article in WAPO. Tku for linking that. Memos, memos, memos. It's strange that he has been identified as one of the media flunkies for the Deepstate 13 Oafs group, and yet he still writes what they conspired about in their secret chat. Could it really be possible they don't know they've been hacked? Or too afraid (fearing they'd be traced) to contact him to turn off the tap? Haaaaa.


Because he hasn't been penalized for it, it took me 10 seconds to figure out who he is, yet third state hadn't updated. Btw this is the Same carp from two months ago.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Oops, our total budget, not just general fund obligations is $180 billion. So it would only be more than double our current budget, not quadruple.
Sounds reasonable when you put it like that. ::eye roll::


Previously they had priebus make the call, this is why I don't think he's the mole.

I always liked him, too, Jack. Last appearance I saw him in was some cheesy Hallmark Channel movie, playing the grandfather of the male British lead. He looked rather fragile, then, and that was about 2 years ago.

Et tu Ivanka?

Dem anonymouse sources are gonna get fired or somethin'.

Trump asked both the director of national intelligence and the director of the National Security Agency to make the statement, and both declined, the former official said,.

The officials, DNI Dan Coats and Adm. Mike Rogers, were sufficiently concerned about the requests that one of them wrote a memo about it, the former official told NBC News. The two men also exchanged notes about their conversations with the president, the source said.


Why do these guys take notes all the time?

Why don't they just talk to the President?

Pagar, a bacon, ham and sausage supporter.

Did anyone check the pillow?


Clarice Feldman

pagar, I think that account has been debunked.


If Trump was calling spooks, he presumably would have called all spooks, including CIA Director Mike Pompeo (with whom he is probably closer than the other two). So why aren’t we hearing about that call? Is Pompeo just better at keeping secrets than his counterparts? Or is he hiding it because he didn’t object as strongly as his counterparts?


Multiple sources confirm that Pamela Talkin, Marshal of the Supreme Court, was dispatched to the White House by Chief Justice Roberts last Friday. The decision to send her was taken, sources say, when White House Counsel, Don McGahn, did not release Rudy Giuliani’s ‘Muslim memo’, despite an order of the court* to do so by that date.

The White House failed to meet the May 19th deadline to hand over the Giuliani memo, violating this order. The order states, among other things:

The parties must exchange initial disclosures by May 19, 2017. Regarding the discovery requests Plaintiffs served on Defendants on April 6, Defendants must produce the document responsive to document request 1 by May 19, 2017, and they must respond to the remaining discovery requests by June 2, 2017.

A great wrap up of the anti-Trump hysteria by VDH


Because there is is no such memo, just like they would have printed comey's I doubt Cummings even has the documents 're Flynn. He probably appeared more times on al Jazeera then he did for rt, because out nets are mostly useless mugwumps.


Rudy didn't follow Trumps order?

Yugely unlikely.

Anyone that can come up with a term like 'carbon dividends' should be working at the Ministry of Truth.
That gaggle of gargoyles is a virtual "who's who" of the mushy knotheads who derailed Reagan's revolution into the morass of middle of the road muddleheadedness the GOP is now mired in.

Even as a body as politically biased and undisciplined as the IPCC has drastically lowered its estimates of climate sensitivity over the last several years, dops like these guys just mindlessly repeat leftist mantras like "Mounting evidence of climate change is growing too strong to ignore."

Freeze the swamp.

Nice, 'mired in the morass of middle of the road muddleheadedness'.

"the secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain"

An unelected authority within that country.

*ALL* of it is involved in the lethal force of jihad in Britain.

Meanwhile, the recent run of murders is to one end: steadily reinforce public perception that the British government cannot protect its people.

Next phase of jihad, once the sheep are properly fattened and docile, this "Muslim Council of Britain" will urge the sheep to convert to Islam for their own good.

Following the third call, a mass kill will be carried out. And this is the process being carried out around the world.

This is all written down and codified by Sharia jurists and "scholars", and taught to the most devoted followers in mosques all over the world.

It's written down. And it has been or CENTURIES.

Meanwhile, our lead agency on the Jihad has been corrupted and paralyzed by The Rat Muslim Obama.

And we're now investigating a president *who isn't* a Muslim.

We're laughing stocks in this fight. Without fighting the jihad and rounding up the players who are here in our midst, blasting ISIS won't amount to a hill of manure.

Not saying we shouldn't. I'm saying that Global Jihad has roots and it is rooted HERE in all of these Saudi-financed wahabbist mosques in Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia, New York, etc etc etc.

Close the damned borders. Crush the circuit courts. And go to war with these pukes.
