In the chaotic days leading to the death of Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, Iran’s most powerful commander, top American military officials put the option of killing him — which they viewed as the most extreme response to recent Iranian-led violence in Iraq — on the menu they presented to President Trump. They didn’t think he would take it. In the wars waged since the Sept. 11, 2001,...
Jan 05 11:49am @6 Maybe we should have given Iran billions of dollars and a path to a nuke. Then they’d love us for sure,,right? That was chamberlain’s  mistake. He was too tough on hitler.  Always give terrorists...

Photo: The Great American Disconnect Tweets from 2011 and 2012 in which Donald Trump predicted that President Barack Obama would start a war with Iran to secure his reelection have gone viral, after the U.S. assassinated a top Iranian general, dramatically escalating its confrontation with Iran.
Jan 04 8:23pm @4 Amazing that some people think  8 year old tweets matter.

Is any NT watching or have watched the first three seasons of The Last Kingdom ? I am watching the third season on Netflix . This is a potent saga cinematic picture epic tapping themes deeper than those of Game of Thrones .  A great period peace. I am drawn in by the acting and varying knowledge as displayed through the characters. Immediately after watching Season 1, I...
Jan 04 4:15pm @2 I read the books this was based on.  Although I thought the series was ended, apparently Cromwell is still publishing books.  Good adventure series that probably would make for compelling tv.  I'll...

Jan 03 6:59pm @3.2.1 Trump doesn't know what he's doing Yet you claim he had the foresight to get the Bush admin to name the  the Al-quds force a terrorist organization in 2007, just so he could kill its leader in 2020.
Jan 03 4:21pm @2 When the  screed starts with a false claim about this being "wildly illegal," I'm out.

I think everyone considers Qassem Suleimani to be a fucking asshole who deserved to die.  He was responsible for thousands of deaths in the region including hundreds of Americans.  Butt is killing that murdering prick worth a war with Iran (and their proxies)?  Are American troops in the region in more danger as a result of the action?  Will there be more Embassy attacks in the region?  Will...

All thanks to our President for being involved in and approving this attack against top Iranian terrorist leadership.  The man responsible for the killing of hundreds of Americans is now dead.  
Jan 02 11:34pm @3.1.1 That’s really sad

Fundraising by Democratic Presidential Candidates Looks Like A Bad Omen For Trump


By: JohnRussell  •  71 comments  •  3 weeks ago
Dave Weigel @daveweigel Trump raised $46 million for the quarter. For all the "impeachment is SURGING Trump's fundraising" stuff (I'm sure it did!), the Dem field is easily going to double him. That is really, really unusual. The 2012 GOP field and 2004 Dem field did not outpace incumbent presidents....
Jan 02 10:01pm @1.2.25 Like Mr Trump has done so many times, Clinton settled out of court with an accuser while admitting no wrong. Still confusing civil settlements with criminal penalties. Please stop conflating the two.
Jan 02 1:34pm @8 Hillary Clinton spent about twice as much as Trump, and that doesn't even count the billions worth of free air time she received from the MSM acting as her proxy and the even bigger advantage she...
Wake up, Republicans. Your party stands for all the wrong things now.

He bet that Republican voters didn’t really care about free trade or mutual security, or about the environment or Europe, much less deficits. He rebranded kindness and compassion as “PC” and elevated division and bigotry as the admirable goals of just being politically incorrect. Trump didn’t make Americans more racist; he just normalized the resentments that were simmering in many...

Chicago murder rate decreases for third year in a row

City officials announced on New Years Day that the murder rate in the city had gone down in Chicago for the third year in a row.   The rate in 2019 was 18 killed per 100,000 population.   (2,700,000/100,000  =27.   490 (murders) /27  = 18.1)  While still quite high, it does show new policing techniques are having some positive result.  By the way, using 2018 figures, the last year for...
Jan 01 12:05pm @4 Actual homicides were 513. The mayor told the police department a couple months ago to keep the total under 500.  So, like magic, the official total came in under 500. there will be dozens of...
