“Four Arab nations led a diplomatic break with Qatar on Monday, moving swiftly to isolate the small but influential country after accusing Qatar’s rulers of supporting terrorist factions and stoking regional conflicts.
“The countries – Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain – released separate and apparently coordinated statements saying they would cut air, sea and land links with Qatar, which hosts a forward base for the U.S. military’s Central Command and is home to the widely watched Al Jazeera network.
“Some other countries later joined the four-nation bloc in cutting ties with Qatar, which is also the venue for the 2022 World Cup.Continue reading →

Who is the head of Blue Lives Matter?
or should I ask… who are the blueS?
I guess I’m not trying very hard to find out who runs BLUE LIVES MATTER
ALL LIVES MATTER…should be the name of this group.
And while I’m on it…Who Started Black Lives Matter? Was it after a kid weighing too many pounds, being used to pushing people around, taking without permission or should I say shop lifting items with a group of kids in a suburb of St. Louis?
Didn’t he meet his match one day in Ferguson?
Was this the birth of Black Lives Matter?
Please don’t tell me that SHARPTON is associated with this group.
Judge Robart Rules Against President Just Months After Calling Cops Killers by OFFICER BLUE on February 3, 2017 with 49 comments already.
Seattle, Washington – U.S. District Judge James Robart issued a nationwide halt on President Trump’s immigration executive order on Friday. Judge Robart is the same judge who accused the Seattle police union of killing black people and proclaimed “Black Lives Matter” from the bench.
Wednesday evening, Judge Robart issued an immediate restraining order on the President’s executive order banning travel from foreign nationals from seven Muslim countries that hold terrorist bases.
Washington and Minnesota had filed a lawsuit against the federal government to halt the travel ban, and Judge Robart declared that the states were likely to succeed in their lawsuits before issuing the restraining order.
The Justice Department responded by saying, “The department looks forward to reviewing the court’s written order and will determine next steps.”
Who is OFFICER BLUE…why is officer blue hiding behind a pseudonymn?
The U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington is a federal court serving the area west of the Cascade Mountains from Oregon to the Canadian border. The district has courthouses in Seattle and Tacoma.
was always talking about Yankee Imperialism? A bunch of smugglers were taking his fruits of labor out of Cuba to work in the United States of America. Should all of the seventeen players who entered illegally into the USofA, be on a list of those who need to be returned to their country of origin, to legalize their right to remain in America?
Talented Cuban baseball players paid a South Florida smuggling ring a percentage of their contract totaling millions of American dollars, to leave the communist island in “secretive ventures that included phony documents, false identities and surreptitious boat voyages to Mexico, Haiti and the Dominican Republic, federal prosecutors say.”
We had decided the night before to have breakfast in Dunedin, FL before continuing to St. Petersburg, FL to see if Pet Pal had any small dogs for adoption. Pit bulls, mixed pit bulls, pits, pits pits in my juice juice juice! [a reference to the Odd Couple with Tony Randall & Jack Klugman.] I’ll continue later with the Pet Pal experience.
We arrived at the café located near the library. Walking by the side of the building facing Douglas Avenue. After parking in the rear of the building, and while passing through the café’s front courtyard, I noticed many couples having breakfast. One caught my attention. In the seconds I had to spare since I was not going to waste any more time observing their behavior, was a 50+ years old man and a woman perhaps a generation younger. He was stroking her arm slowly from her wrist to her axilla, the part that smells when we perspire, the underside of her upper arm. Her arm pit! I went past them quickly and saw other couples looking up at us. It’s funny how quickly people look away when being caught staring. We entered a nearly empty restaurant. Only one table was taken. Two women sat having breakfast with one typing on an I Pad.
Growing pains indeed! The stock price for his company is at an all time high but soon will decline when he starts to switch to the “newer” Airbus. The management team has been replaced and by 2020 he plans to hire five new mechanics to work out of the Pinellas County market. “We’ve always been safe. And we will continue to work with the FAA and audit our own practices.”
The host of this event was Sen. Jack Latvala, who flies to Bangor, Maine on Allegiant.
From the Marriott, CEO Maurice Gallagher headed to the Sirata Beach Resort in. St. Pete Beach for the company’s annual station meeting. It was the first time in this company’s history that the “annual station meeting” was held outside of Las Vegas, Nevada.
Allegiant is based in Las Vegas where Roulette, and other games of chance are played.
Notice how much Maurice talked about customer service? He claims he invests and “reinvests in our pilots.” Thank G_d, he hired competent flyers or his airline would have been grounded indefinitely if all his growing pains had touched the earth with more force.
Defending Allegiant, the senator actually complained bout the investigative reporting of the Tampa Bay Times.
Copy paragraph “the airlines…” Please see picture below.
Soon after reading this I head a loud dry cough coming from a zaftig waitress who happened to be bent over pushing her breasts almost over her black blouse.
My breakfast hadn’t yet arrived and I began to worry if Typhoid Mary was still alive.
At this point I was reading “No Trump, but presence looms large at GOP event.” Another politician was present at this event, Governor R. Scott of Florida, who wouldn’t mention the missing elephant in the room, instead he talked about “jobs,”‘and chided all the Republican candidates for failing to make that the central campaign issue. I bet he didn’t mention the Florida Panther…
Hair tied in a bun, tattoo on left arm just above the elbow, dressed all black, taking quick nervous short steps while serving customers outside and inside was, “I don’t want to get anyone sick.” As she was saying this she was wiping her nose with a finger, then blowing her nose with a soft paper product, then wiping her hands on her ample gluteus maximus. All this behind the counter near the small prep area.
She flew past us on her way out the other door that still slams shut. She returned to enter an order and coughed yet again. I leaned back, turned my head to the right to see if she was the same suspect. “Now she’s here to contaminate this area,” I told Michele.
By now I had seen her cough into her hand, grab a carafe, pour coffee, wipe her nose with her index finger various times, clean her hands on her ass and not once did she wash her hands. “Where’s the owner,” I asked Michele. “Are you going to say something to our waitress about her colleague?
The bill arrived and Michele hadn’t even been given a refill! “Please ask me if I want coffee,” she tells me, “before bringing the check.”
Listening to the music playing in the background was Sting’s Every Breath You Take…I’ll be watching you at 9:45 A.M. A coincidence and ironic because I was watching her and scribbling notes on top of No Trump, but …
And then three ladies walked in. Mother,daughter and granddaughter. “Where do you want to sit,” Grandma asked the baby.
Japan has approved its biggest ever defense budget, as it attempts to counter an increasingly assertive China and push through an unpopular move to relocate a US military base on Okinawa.
The cabinet on Thursday approved plans to spend 5.05tn yen (£28bn) on defence for the year beginning next April, with a focus on protecting a string of remote islands in its southernmost reaches, including those claimed by Beijing.
Military spending will rise 1.5% from this year – the first time it has topped 5tn yen and the fourth annual increase under the conservative prime minister, Shinzo Abe, who ended a decade of defence budget cuts after taking office in late 2012.
Donald Trump is desperately trying to become the first man of “no color” to be ousted from a presidential primary. What’s next Trump? Concentration camps, door to door searches, sterilization of all Moslem women, the “Rape of Nanking” behavior against them?
Donald J. Trump’s plan to ban Moslem until our leaders know what is happening is scaring away the Statue of Liberty back to France.
Before you start your Moslem and Mexican Plans why not propose a National Identity card so that we can prove without having to search for a birth certificate, that we are citizens of the United States of America?
Let me tell you a fairy tale about a Pakistani girl who emigrated to Saudi Arabia with her father. Years later she finds her Prince Charming, an American, marries him. She gives birth to a child in the United States of America. Let’s assume the Prince is the father and let’s not ask Maury Povich to do a paternity test on his show. Couple lives happily ever after. The end. No. Not quite like that. Six months later the baby is an orphan. The couple, leave their six-month-old baby daughter with relatives, two hours later the couple is killed in a shootout with police SWAT team members.
All decent people feel sorrow and righteous fury about the latest slaughter of innocents, in California. Law enforcement and intelligence agencies are searching for motivations, including the vital question of how the murderers might have been connected to international terrorism. That is right and proper.
But motives do not matter to the dead in California, nor did they in Colorado, Oregon, South Carolina, Virginia, Connecticut and far too many other places. The attention and anger of Americans should also be directed at the elected leaders whose job is to keep us safe but who place a higher premium on the money and political power of an industry dedicated to profiting from the unfettered spread of ever more powerful firearms.
I’m in favor of not restricting responsible people from owning guns. I have yet to see a gun kill anyone. There is always a human behind the weapon who does the killing. The gun is an instrument that needs to be issued with caution to people. I believe we need a National Identity card where all information about an individual is available to the authorities who will decide if an individual is a candidate for gun ownership. There should be a waiting period where the individual should attend mandatory safety classes. If the individual fails to pass these classes he loses the right to ownership and must forfeit all fees paid.
Islamic State claims California mass killers as followers
This is the day to feel uninhibited. Drop those clothes and run around naked all day!
