Of course I wish a speedy recovery to the POTUS/FlOTUS, Hope Hicks
& everyone who is infected with this horrible plague.

Serge, I'm interested in knowing more about the Azerbaijan-Armenia
conflict. I'd appreciate it if someone would expound.

Serge -

The Azeris are now shelling the Armenian capitol, Stepanakert.

I am still alive because I did not ever accept the idea that people should be trusted.

"Mossad types are known to be swift and silent. They are good at what they do. The walls would have been freshly painted before you could say call the Saudi Embassy in Istanbul three times." No idea what you are talking about. It was a very straightforward situation. The two Zionist staffies were just American sissies whom I had known for years. It sounds like you are suffering from fantasies about the Mossad. What do you know about the Mossad?

Pence will appear calm and rational

Pence appears calm and rational in the same way that a prerecorded message is calm and rational.

When asked a question he utilizes seemingly endless dissembling to filibuster the media, while saying absolutely nothing. A very dull unimpressive figure.

Serge, Leith, and all,

Here is a link to a post on the situation between Armenia & Azerbaijan from Zerohedge:

Sultan Erdogan is flexing his pan-Turkic muscles now, claiming he will throw in with the Azeris. It appears that Syrian jihadis are being introduced to the theater, which sounds like a red flag to the Russians...who have a long-standing defense agreement with the Armenians. They have a major base in NW Armenia already, and things could escalate rapidly, indeed. Wonder if the fingerprints of Pompeus are to be descried in this sudden development? Things could get very interesting for both Azerjiban and Turkey (especially given the jihadi provocation with Turkish assistance). S-300s and S-400s could be deployed against aerial attacks, and cruise missiles might just land in their respective laps. A glorious chance to slaughter some more jihadis might be difficult to resist, too.

Serge

Elaine,
I'm sure many others could explain far better than I, but from my limited understanding Iran has been cozying up to Armenia for years, Armenia is also close to Russia. Iranian activities in the country have caused increased Israeli military support to resource-rich Azerbaijan, coincidentally also supported by Turkey, their brothers-in-turan. Seems that a combination of this increased military aid and aggressive Erdogan influence has caused a balance to tip in which the Azeris have calculated(correctly,from the current looks of the past 5 days) that they can take a big chunk of armenian territory.

Trump, Melania and Hope Hicks sounded like a normal covid coincidence.

Now KellyAnne and the RNC head also positive - sounding more causal than coincidence - any more in the Trump inner circle and one may well have another coup conspiracy. Stay tuned.

At least there will be a crack team at Cleveland Clinic on top of this tracing its origins. Anyone seen Kamala Harris lately? And did the Bidens really send Trump a note ...hoping you stay positive during this ordeal? (Heh, heh)

Yeah, Right

..."Ms Rahim worked in the White House"...
..."spokeswoman for Hillary Clinton"...
..."worked as director of communications for Vogue magazine"...
..."lobbied for Uber in the United States"...

So, basically, she specialized in jobs that require a thorough understanding of when to make a big song and dance and when to keep your f**king mouth shut.

A prerequisite for those jobs, one would think. But, no, apparently not.

Is this really the sort of "talent" that gets hired again and again and again inside the Beltway? Someone so obviously lacking in commonsense?

Shameful. Utterly shameful.

Thank you for making me track down my recent claim of "44 million card carrying public sector union members". I tried to track that back but alas I could not do this.

But in the process I bumped into a highly frustrating search since for a long time I was pegging this at the 14 million mark until I read "somewhere" recently in fact it was 44 million. I shall officially retract that numbers and ratchet back to closer to 14 plus million existentially threatened card carrying public sector union members, most afflicted with terminal TDS..

Amazing how coy the big unions are about posting their actual membership numbers in public when trying to dig deeply into these numbers, but the 2012 Census did establish a total of 22 million work for some form of the government - full time and part time, though they are not all public sector union members.

But even 22 million government employees in the US is a daunting special interest group, mainly because many will have a spouse or voting family members too. One also needs to add the numbers of retired government employees and retired but still union members to this illusive count. So 22 million is just part of this special interest group.

Will be interesting to see what the 2020 Census figures come up with. Thank you again for pulling me back from a claim I could not readily verify - I don't treat this issue lightly and try to keep up on its impact since the power of government employee unions has been so devastating in my home state of California - mainly the teachers unions.

But SEIU etc. work every day to add more and more taxpayer funded employees to their membership roles in this state - but curiously not Silicon Valley employees. As we recently faced the AB-5 gig workers now getting classified as employees as a ploy to increase union membership numbers.

And quite frankly I immediately saw BLM as a turf war between SEIU and the teachers unions against the police unions with their deund the police campaign, but no promise to give that money back to the taxpayers, but to start spending it to build up teacher union and social worker employee union numbers instead.

I suspect we can both agree there are at least - 14 million highly self-interested and highly disciplined and networked public sector union members (plus their voting family members) which constitutes a major voting block and source of campaign donations that virtually all go to the Democrat party. adding immediate seriousness about who sits in any elected position from POTUS down to local school boards. Plus being a significant number who show up in any polling data as well.

What hath God wrought, when JFK unionized government employees? An existentially threatened deep state, who activate their frog brains anytime they do not have their hands on the tax payer check book. Can you blame them?

Shameful indeed.

I hope all the infected have a fast recovery.

However, this is quite the opportunity for everybody to see what treatments the most powerful man in the world is using in this case.

Also, people should pay attention to what he is NOT using.

John 1:1: "1n the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."

Yes, the Left's words are the expression of who or what they worship.

Nietzsche, when he wrote that "God is dead" meant, I think, that God was no longer considered in public and political discourse. He has been proved correct.

I remember the days when most businesses were shut down on Sunday to honor the Fourth Commandment. Mothers put a roast in the oven, the family in their Sunday clothes went to church, and then they came home to a homecooked meal.

Parents and teachers severely reprimanded students who made statements like the one Ms. Rahim made. Her statement would certainly not been reported nationally. It's the first I ever heard of her. I certainly have no wish to meet her or hear from her again..

God Speed, Mr. President.

.... has said she "hopes he dies".

How easily she talks about and wishes for the death of another.

Her and others of her ilk would have little difficulty with writing a new US Constitution and enacting it by any plausible means, and throwing any opposition into a dungeon if they got in the way of those Utopian goals for society.

Leith

Serge and JerseyJeff -

Some of those Armenian soldiers are graybeards. They look like they are veterans of the first Nagorno-Karabach War back in 1988 thru 1994.

different clue

Yeah, Right,

I am not sure this Clinton aide represents ALL the talent hired in and by the Belt Wayvians. But it represents all the Best and the Brightest hired by the Clintons. The Clintons were a pure political mafia-wannabe family. They have tried seeding their feltravs, symps, and Left Behinds everywhere they can.

Her Royal Herness's campaign was made up of this kind of talent. It helps explain how Her Royal Herness could lose such a very winnable campaign. Her Royal Herness's campaign and party brilliance first shined in the decision to try wiring up all the media to help Trump get nominated in every way they could, as per their brilliant analysis to the effect that Trump would be the Hillarrhoid's weakest opponent in the election.
