Khashoggi and first principles

This whole dismemberment thing could have, and normally should have, gone away in a couple days ('journalists' just stop writing and talking about it, and poof! it's gone), yet it continues to linger, and perhaps even intensify (this is nuts, something that would have been incomprehensible a few months ago!: "Lindsey Graham Wants to ‘Sanction the Hell Out of Saudi Arabia’ Until Crown Prince Is Ousted").

Winnipeg's 1st toking and driving ticket issued 1 hour into legalization

One hour after pot was legalized, Winnipeg police issued their first ticket for consuming cannabis in a car.
Around 1 a.m., Winnipeg Police Service traffic division Insp. Gord Spado says one of his officers issued the ticket during a traffic stop.
"An hour into legality, and something illegal," Spado said Wednesday.
Spado said while the cannabis was likely illegally purchased — online sales started at 12:01 a.m. but weren't being delivered yet at 1 a.m. — no ticket was issued for that.
"It doesn't look like anything was pursued as far as the illicit component of it goes," he said. "I think that's just the education piece of our members, knowing where to go with that. It's still new to us, too, right, so we're still learning."

US shale’s glory days are numbered

There are some early signs that the US shale industry is starting to show its age, with depletion rates on the rise.

A study from Wood Mackenzie found that some wells in the Permian Wolfcamp were suffering from decline rates at or above 15 percent after five years, much higher than the 5 to 10 percent originally anticipated. “If you were expecting a well to hit the normal 6 or 8 percent after five years, and you start seeing a 12 percent decline, this becomes more of a reserves issue than an economics issue,” said R.T. Dukes, a director at industry consultant Wood Mackenzie Ltd., according to Bloomberg. As a result, “you have to grow activity year over year, or it gets harder and harder to offset declines.”

Vietnam War hero sentenced to 7 years for decades-old rifle purchase

A decorated Vietnam veteran and firearms collector was sentenced to seven years in federal prison Wednesday for a decades-old purchase of a rifle.
Alfred Pick, 70, purchased the M14 -- a fully automatic weapon illegal to own -- at a Ft. Worth gun show in the early 1980s, the Dallas Morning News reported.

The rifle, which had a scratched-off serial number, was similar to the one Pick used as an Army lieutenant in Vietnam, where he earned a Silver Star after participating in more than 100 combat missions and his brief time as a POW.
"The man is a Silver Star winner, he saved lives, he took care of his wife, he’s been in custody for a year, I would think that when a man turned 70 and is an American hero you don't destroy the rest of his life for one mistake," Mark Shackelford, a friend, told KDFW-TV.
Shackelford called the weapon the "piece de resistance" of Pick’s collection, adding that "He had shown it to me. I've never seen it taken out of the case.

Pandering to Israel

Politicians and journalists learned long ago that it was better to cultivate Israel's friends than it was to support actual American interests. They also discovered to speak the truth about the Jewish State often would prove to be a death sentence career-wise ... Maintaining "overwhelming support" for Israel requires doing whatever is necessary, be it fair or foul, and many Jews and Jewish organizations worldwide, like Engel, are prepared to place alleged Israeli interests ahead of those of the countries where they actually reside. In America, Jewish groups and individuals have succeeded in buying politicians and using their money and control over much of the media to corrupt the entire political system to benefit Israel ... It is time for government to do what is best for Americans, not for Israelis.

62-minute ‘Is Trump for Real?’ documentary: ‘Drain swamp,’ ‘fake news,’ ‘Deep State,’ etc. contrived talking points with fake Truth hints for just another puppet-President VS 10-minute ‘Q - We are The Plan’: White Hat critical mass using Trump

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

I’m going to provide summaries of two polar positions of our world of the present:

1. President Trump is just another heartless, narcissistic, anti-leader to psychopathically lie Americans into at least allowing ongoing rogue state empire. Nothing has changed.

2. President Trump is commanded by White Hat Patriots about to open ~56,000 sealed federal indictments to arrest .01% rogue state criminals, restore honesty and the US Constitution, all for a future brighter than we can imagine.

1. Trump as just another chump

Friend, colleague, and retired AP US History teacher John Hankey created JFK Dark Legacy (featured here), that among ~100 film clips I show high school students when I teach US history has been their very favorite with demand to see the entire documentary. John turns his sharp mind and creativity in Is Trump for Real? Four-minute trailer:

Pompeo Tells Bin Salman He Should Take Responsibility in Khashoggi Case as His Future as King Is in Danger

TEHRAN (FNA)- US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has sternly told Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman (MbS) during a meeting in Riyadh on Tuesday that the first in line to the throne would have to take responsibility in disappearance case of journalist Jamal Khashoggi to help the kingdom avoid the consequences of an international backlash, according to an informed source.
A person familiar with the meeting told The New York Times that Pompeo sternly told the crown prince that even if he did not know whether Khashoggi had been killed, he would have to take responsibility to help the kingdom avoid the consequences of an international backlash.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Malice in the Palace is nothing new, particularly in Saudi Arabia.

I have to wonder if another Saudi Royal might be plotting "regime change" against Bin Salman, and using this incident as the justification to take him out of power.

French Forces to Set Up Military Base in Raqqa

The Arabic-language Baladi News website affiliated to the terrorists reported on Thursday that the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are busy with drilling operations in an area stretching from the Brigade 17 region to Sahlat al-Banat region in Northeast of Raqqa city and from Sahlat al-Banat region to the North of the Sugar plant in Northern Raqqa.

It added that operations to build the walls and construction of buildings in the area will start after drilling operations, noting that a military base is due to be set up for the French forces with the aim of supporting the SDF in Raqqa.

According to the report, the US military troops are in talks with the SDF to further equip al-Tabaqah airbase in Western Raqqa and turn it into their new military base in the region next year.

Sources in the past few months said that the French army has sent weapons, military equipment and forces to Raqqa.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, let me get my head around this: The US military has invited the French military to further invade and disrupt life in Syria, and will not hesitate, against the will of the Syrian government, and their Russian and Iranian counterparts, to establish a permanent military base in Raqqa, in order to engage in military actions against all of them, as they see fit?!?

Folks, given that Russia is still very active here, and Israel has threatened to take out the newly installed S-300 self-defense systems, we may be a lot closer to war in Syria than many of us had wanted to believe
