Speaking of dumpsterfires alien covenant were they drunk when they signed off on that.

Captain Hate

Not a big Kobe fan. He ran off Shaq and The Logo had to trade away massive draft choices to get Gasol in a mutually beneficial trade with the Griz so they got one more championship. After that they signed him to an albatross of a contract so they couldn't sign any free agents and dealing with him finally got too much for the Zen Master before his Knicks disaster. Then there was that Denver thing where he was lucky not to do 25 to life.

Son of an NBA player, like Steph Curry and Klay Thompson, he was a fantastic talent and was mentally tough. LeBron passed him last night as the #3 career scorer. I remember his last game he went off for 60 points. Some of the monkey spankers asked me if I watched it; I said no, I was watching teams fighting for playoff positions. I understand Laker fans being sad but a couple people who thought they knew me expected me to have a bigger reaction. Nope.

Not a John Prine fan either. One of his concerts was more than enough; I was really bored the whole time. I liked his song Paradise though; I got Jim & Jesse McReynolds to play it at one of their concerts.

Team John Bolton is attempting to convince you, the potential buyer of his memoir, that he had nothing to do w/ leaks to the press. & oh by the way it was just a shocking coincidence his book's Amazon pg went live simultaneously.

TBH it doesn't seem like he respects you at all.

Narciso,

That Al Jazeera article was the best written of several similar articles on Libya.

In the past I never would have pasted their articles, but recently they have been doing better reporting than many other news sources.

I've got some Syria posts coming up. Idlib province fighting is on a serious uptick over the last 7-10 days and I think it's going to get worse.

jim nj

https://www.thedailybeast.com/the-final-battle-for-syria-has-begun

It’s a showdown in Idlib province that pits Russia, Iran, Hezbollah and Assad against Turkey and its militia allies. But what’s the U.S. up to? Where’d the TOW missiles come from?

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-syria-security/syrian-government-forces-capture-towns-in-advance-on-rebel-held-idlib-idUSKBN1ZP0FC

Reuters backs this first up with fewer details. There is a major push going on with Iranian-backed militias on the ground fighting and uptempo air strikes.

jim nj

Narciso beat me to it as I had this in the queue, a direct link to the Telegraph article:

jim nj

https://www.middleeasteye.net/news/tensions-syrias-daraa-are-getting-out-hand

Assad may have conquered the cradle of the Syrian revolution, but attacks on his forces there show the province is far from tamed

I NEVER told John Bolton that the aid to Ukraine was tied to investigations into Democrats, including the Bidens. In fact, he never complained about this at the time of his very public termination. If John Bolton said this, it was only to sell a book. With that being said, the...

.transcripts of my calls with President Zelensky are all the proof that is needed, in addition to the fact that President Zelensky & the Foreign Minister of Ukraine said there was no pressure and no problems. Additionally, I met with President Zelensky at the United Nations...

...(Democrats said I never met) and released the military aid to Ukraine without any conditions or investigations - and far ahead of schedule. I also allowed Ukraine to purchase Javelin anti-tank missiles. My Administration has done far more than the previous Administration.

I remember Bolton trolling the hanging chad counters at the Palm Beach County and Broward County election offices in the 2000 presidential election. He was the guy yelling, "Count the Votes" as he and his compatriots waited behind glass doors. He's been and alley-fighter and notoriously loyal.

How much taxpayer money is skimmed as kick-backs? How much is taken from budget allocations to connected individuals and companies? How much goes in pay-offs disguised as book advances? I am sure there is more I haven't spotted yet, since I am not a big accounting expert.
