    So my first official duty of Monday is to go to bed and sleep off Sunday. Retirement’s great.

    Some of us are just tired, and can’t wait to grow up and be retired. But philosophy classes are not on the agenda today. For those of us still in the grind, it’s that time again. Coffee up y’all. Happy Monday. πŸ™‚

    Woof! Not only is the vicious old toad calling for bipartisanship in the wake of a Trump victory but he’s upset over the alleged rise in swastikas appearing on school walls. Note he doesn’t seem upset about swastikas appearing on synagogues or Moslem depredations against Jews and Christians (who knows, maybe with his WWII experience he got a ISIS contract) nor does he say anything positive about the democratic process that thwarted his American Holocaust plans. If hypocricy were cash he’d be a trillionaire.
    Here’s hoping for his speedy return to the bosom of Abraham.

    Oil, isis, and turkey…

    The accusations against the Turkish government -and most specifically, Albayrak- became even more intense after the shooting down of the Russian aircraft by the Turkish forces on the 24th of November 2015. As well as imposing sanctions to Turkey, Russia also accused Erdogan and his family of involvement in the oil smuggling. In order to support those accusations, Russia delivered satellite images which reveal the routes of the oil from the ISIS grounds to Turkey. A similar research was conducted by the ministry of Foreign Affairs of Norway and came to the conclusion that the oil transported from the β€œIslamic State’s” territories to Turkey is sold in low price. Meanwhile, the American government has also mentioned the ISIS’ oil ends up, through a process, in Turkey. The Turkish president vowed to resign if these allegations correspond to reality.

    The photos and documents presented by Russia and the international Media show that ISIS’ oil ends up in various areas of Turkey and the only company that -based on the Turkish legislation- can realize this transportation is Powertrans. Until today, Albayrak and Erdogan refuse any relation to this company. The emails of the Turkish minister of Energy, prove the opposite.

      I’d posted next door on this before the Trumpstapo commandeered the stage. Tirkey’s been supporting the ISIS folks for a long time, nuttin new here.
      Russia knows the oil goings-on, it’s been nose deep with Turkey in the oil and natural gas business for years. Russia had and still has huge plans for Turkey and Syria, including a huge natural gas liquification plant in Syria that would supply LNG to South and Central AmericA. Russia was going to build pipelines from the Gulf thru Turkey so as not to have all of its lines vulnerable to one country or route. Turkey would have had a big part in the well-to-user layout.
      Turkey had its decades old fight with the Kurds still on its cultural ‘things to do” list and as the US and NATO were assissting and supplying the Kurds who were fighting ISIS, Turkey most likely felt it could play NATO against Russia and help ISIS fight the Kurds; especially when the Kurds started to push ISIS back and said they were going to establish a Kurdish state in the Syrian provinces immediately adjacent to the Turk border.
      Turkey established ‘safe’ bases in Syria, right up against its borders, for rebels fighting ISIS, even ones fighting rebels fighting Assad as long as they were also fighting the Kurds. You remember the stink when Turk F-16s intercepted a Russian plane ‘too close’ to Turk airspace? The Russians were attacking one of these camps and the Turks were warning them to leave the camps alone. The shootdown was the same, Russians attacking Turk-protected camps, but this time the Turks showed the Russians how serious they were.
      Looks like Turkey knows it still has a hand to play with Russia, Russia would still like to steal Turkey away from NATO and have pipelines going through Tyrkeyvas well as Syria. Turkey and Russia just have some issues over Turkey getting those Syrian provinces back it claims are part of its old Ottoman Empire and how to flatten the Kurds.

          I believe they’ll stay with NATO and the West. They’ll take candybfrom Russia and aRussia will still court them, they’re a great secondary pipeline route and the money Russia gives them would balance, somewhat, the influence of NATO. Never forget that the West wants Turkey as it shares the Black Sea with Russia and gives NATO acces to Russia’s underbelly.
          Turkey wants into the EU while Germany does not want Turkey in the EU. Turkey plays its strategic position to leverage the EU while Germany dangles the prospect of membership in the EU to keep Turkey in NATO.
          I believe Turkey will stay with NATO as itnis the juggernaut in tne Mideast, it has the largest and most modern military in the Mideast. It will not second, or seem to second, itself tomRussia or especially Iran and as Iran holds the key to the South Pars gas field it calls the tune Russia dances to, that’s the gas Russia will be piping thru Syria and Turkey. Turkey will stay ‘independent’, take mobey from everyone and continue to play the game.

    It’s been drizzling on and off for over a day now, rain just hit in earnest. Light thunder and lightening with roof-pounding rain. Should be visiting y’all in thevSE fire zones within hours if it already ain’t there, hope the runoff won’t be a problem.
    Talked to an old friend who,lives up on Sand Mountain, Alabama and that tornado that smashed Ider was coming straight for their plsce but when it jumped it went right over them. They’ve been spared a number of direct hits over the years, seems going to church faithfully every Sunday may well do some good.

      Been raining here since Saturday night, it’s going to get harder tonight through tomorrow morning. I’m expect it to quit sometime after 8:30 AM, which is when I make the long walk in to work.

      Husband and I are giving some serious thought to moving to Sand Mountain, probably would be a little town called Bryant. Downside is property does not sell fast up there. If you ever wanted to leave you’d have your money tied up in the place.

    The MSM is in a full-court-press against #Pizzagate.

    That there is called a clue, Blue!

    Hey, they pulled off Sandy Hook Elementary.

    I’m guessing they think there’s pretty much nothing they can’t do, now.

    Comment threads, too.

    Pizzagate has been debunked! How do we know? Snopes, Wikipedia, and NYT told us so, without actually debunking anything whatsoever. They just repeat that it’s been debunked.

    Why are these lying bastards lying to me?

        Basically, nothing’s been investigated, by people with “standing” to investigate. The police have investigated and served search warrents for far less evidence than these e-mails.

        If nothing’s been investigated, then nothing’s been debunked.

        Heck, every user of Adobe Illustrator in the whole entire world knew that Obama’s BC was made from scratch, minutes after they downloaded it from the website, renamed the file “.ill”, and saw every single layer.

        That was two days before Obama took out OBL, and disposed of him using some arcane “cultural practice” of burial-at-sea that nobody had ever heard of before, in all of Islamic jurisprudence. What birth certificate? MSM saw a squirrel!

        After seeing all that, and dead kids from Sandy Hook sitting on Obama’s lap three days after they died, I don’t blame the MSM for believing that there’s nothing they can’t do.

          I haven’t watched TV for 16 years now, but I can’t help buy bet my last four paychecks that the prime-time sit-coms and crime dramas and zombie shows are pushing this whole “fake news” meme. Is “CSI” still a show? I bet they mentioned “fake news” and “alt-right” last week alone.

          Because, of course they did.

          And slightly less (thank God) than half our nation soaks it up like it’s Gospel.

            Those people who watch these things called “programs”.

            I remember when I had a C64, and I wrote a simple program in BASIC:

            10 PRINT “HELLO, WORLD”
            20 GOTO 10

            And then when I typed “RUN” (or R. Shift-U), the computer would do what the program I wrote told it to do.

            The Teevee people don’t call them programs for nothing.

            The media’s a major social engineering tool for prog social engineers. Just look at the plethora of non-threatening ‘homos you’d feel comfortable living next to you’ programs that lead the LBGTWTF inclusion wars. How ’bout them ‘non-threatening, wouldn’t you like to take ’em home’ programs trying to sanitize Moslems we are now inundated with?
            I’m wondering if the profusion of programs featuring warm, fuzzy veterinarians isn’t the tip of the Zoophile Rights movement spear.

      The same people are still pushing the VIC-20’s limits, and those of the TRS-80 Model-3, and various TI caculators.

      I heard a few years ago, they came up with, using the raster beam adjustments available in CRT;s, three new colors for the C128.
