    From the artilce:

    He has served for years as Al Qaeda's media chief, offering audio statements and written articles backing the militant group. After years of remaining silent following the acknowledgment of Taliban founder Mullah Omar's death, al-Rauf re-emerged in 2018 in an audio statement in which he mocked President Trump and those who preceded him the White House.

    “I name him ‘Donald T-Rambo’ who tries to copy the famous American fictional character ‘Rambo,’ who, with only a Kalashnikov, was able to liberate the entire Afghanistan from the Soviet Union,” al-Rauf said, according to the SITE Intelligence Group.


    He's pretty good, certainly better than the writers for that human douche Steve Colbert. If he wasn't dead he could get a job on the Late Show.

    Also, did you hear Colbert called Gov. Cuomo "your excellency" during a kiss butt interview? Struts around like Billy Joe Bad *** when he's talking about a Republican, but is the most tame and compliant of all media types when there's a fellow party member on.

    Judge Juan Torruella (First Circuit) passed away.
    I think he was the only Cir Ct judge based in PR
    And thus another Trump appointee coming

    The US added 638,000 jobs in October
    Unemployment rate falls to 6.9%

    The idea of handing it over to Biden and Harris is depressing

    Biden will stay just long enough to gloat over the ‘recovery’ he will claim.

    Don't worry, Biden, I mean Harris, will create enough government jobs to get the unemployment rate down to 2%.

    Biden chief of staff was person behind disastrous solyndra deal. Cost US hundreds of $millions. How can you ever make up for that?

    A good argument can be made that "conditions were met" with the capture/kill of Bin Laden. Everything we have been doing there since qualifies as 'nation building,' which is outside the scope of the original authorization (AUMF)

    It’s the standard plan I’ve seen for 40 years:

    Republican in the White House - “Revolt of the Generals! Listen to our military leaders!”

    Democrat in the White House - “Civilian control of the military! Listen our elected officials!”

    Fighting the supply side of a problem won't fix it. You have to remove the demand.

    In the case of the opioid crisis, that will only happen through giving people meaning and purpose to their lives. This happens through faith in God and the community that creates. This happens through strong families and supporting the starting of new families. This happens through increasing freedoms all over culture that lead to opportunities for employment, advancement, development.

    Trump pardons Michael Flynn

    I'm just gonna give Trump the benefit of the doubt and assume he was confused when they told him he gets to pardon a turkey on Thanksgiving.

    Judge Sullivan in Flynn's case: "All along, you were an unregistered agent of a foreign country while serving as the national security advisor to the president of the United States. That undermines everything this flag over here stands for. Arguably you sold your country out."

    Judge Sullivan is black (his life matters) and was born in Washington DC. He was BORN to preside over this case. I would drink hot lava if Judge Sullivan asked me to.

    Judge Sullivan proved himself to be a corrupt judge when he decided to overlook the exculpatory evidence and go on his own personal crusade. It really doesn't say much for the appellate court to allow this nonsense.

    That's a conspiracy theory, but the pee tape stuff wasn't . . .

    The problem with labeling it a conspiracy theory is that people in the new administration and in the media have said a lot of things to suggest that there's truth to it.

    What I suspect is that critics are exaggerating things but aren't totally wrong. There's a lot of chatter by global figures and groups (to whom Biden is sympathetic) of using the pandemic to force major economic changes that go far beyond public health concerns, and it's not crazy to be skeptical of that. In fact, it would be crazy not to be. Covid may not be the flu, but it's much closer to the flu than it is to the bubonic plague. There's no reason to push for a major economic reordering because of it. In fact, we didn't even do that with bubonic plague.

    I had a woman appear one day in my office to work as a trial atty -- no one knew who she was or where she came from. She barely spoke at all - felt like she was avoiding people, not wanting to get to know anyone. 3 months later, just like that, she was gone. Next thing you know, she is on the bench in some Calif state court. Weird. Learned later her family owned a winery (and a bunch of other shyte)

    Perhaps a few things were moved to an expedited timeline with the perspective that a Team Biden would just leak everything to the Iranians on Day One
