    Two days after NBC reported that in what would amount to a stunning foreign policy concession by the White House, the Trump Administration was contemplating extraditing Turkish president Erdogan's nemesis, cleric Fethulah Gulen who has been living for decades in rural Pennsylvania, in order to placate Turkey over the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, on Saturday Trump denied the report, rejecting that he is considering handing over Erdoğan's foe.

    On November 19th, President Putin will stand shoulder to shoulder with President Erdogan during a ceremony to celebrate the completion of the first string of Turk Stream. The subsea gas pipeline will transfer 15.75 bcm directly from mainland Russia to Turkey. The capacity will double after the second string is completed. The pipeline will be operational at the end of 2019. Despite several setbacks, mutual interests concerning security and trade have ensured the strengthening of cooperation between Russia and Turkey in the face of opposition from the West. The first string of Turk Stream, which is almost completed, is important for bilateral relations. The second string, however, will service the European market and is a sign of Gazprom’s successful strategy in the face of opposition from the EU and several European countries. Rising tensions between Russia and the West after the crisis in Ukraine and the annexation of Crimea made Moscow reconsider its massive South Stream project. The pipeline would circumvent Ukraine and transport 63 bcm of natural gas to Europe via Bulgaria. The unbundling legislation and strong opposition from both Brussels and several European countries made Gazprom ditch South Stream and opt for a smaller albeit equally important Turk Stream. The strategy has worked as European companies are scrambling to participate in the project.

    That would be nice but we may have to salami slice our way to liberty like the opposition has done in pursuit of tyranny.

    Bravo, hopefully this will spread. I won't hold my breath waiting. The "gun sanctuary county" movement is spreading some though, an Oregon county just passed a ballot measure declaring itself one.

    The ACLU’s chief founders were communists and communist sympathizers, including top Communist Party officials William Z. Foster, Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, and Louis Budenz. Roger N. Baldwin, another of the co-founders (and the ACLU’s executive director from 1920-1950) may not have been an official card-carrying CPUSA member, but he was a willing collaborator. He wrote: I am for socialism.... I seek social ownership of property, the abolition of the propertied class, and sole control by those who produce wealth. Communism is the goal.... I don’t regret being part of the communist tactic. I knew what I was doing. I was not an innocent liberal. I wanted what the communists wanted and I traveled the United Front road to get it. Despite utilizing more moderate rhetoric than many of their earlier Bolsheviki forebears, the NLG and the ACLU have not swerved from their leftward course. Neither have they deviated from Comintern plan for exploiting immigration and migration issues to batter down our borders and transform the United States into a mere cog in a global socialist system. But don’t expect any of the fake journalists of the Fake News organizations to mention any of this. More at: https://www.thenewamerican.com/usnew...-ice-agitation

    Mexican President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador will reportedly call on different, unspecified sectors of the population to join an effort to draft what he dubbed a "moral constitution," El Financiero reported Nov. 15. Lopez Obrador referred to such a moral constitution repeatedly during his election campaign, with most observers interpreting it as a desire to modify the constitution.

    The Congressional Black Caucus on Wednesday dealt a blow to Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez, passing a no-confidence vote against the embattled Party boss. Caucus members told Politico that Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) introduced the debate over the DNC’s controversial superdelegate system and eventually led to the motion passing against Perez. The mood inside the room is said to have been “heated” as the vote was argued. Members “felt that the DNC pitted them against their constituents,” according to Congressional Black Caucus chairman Cedric Richmond (D-LA) “So now if they want to be a delegate, they have to run against their constituents who want to be delegates, and it’s an unfair proposition,” the Louisana Democrat told Politico. “We don’t want to run against our constituents, so the caucus had made its position known. … It speaks for itself.” More at: https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2018/11/14/congressional-black-caucus-pass-no-confidence-vote-in-dnc-chair-tom-perez/

    John Barrasso, the newly-elected chair of the Senate Republican Conference, said the GOP is committed to confirming judicial nominees with or without a vote from Sen. Jeff Flake. Flake (R-Ariz.), who's retiring in January, has vowed to pull support for all federal judicial nominees -- including 21 pending in the Judiciary Committee and 32 awaiting a vote on the Senate floor -- unless the Senate's GOP leadership permits consideration of legislation to expand protections for Special Counsel Robert Mueller's job. Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said this appears to be Flake's "go-to play," noting that he made a similar move over the summer in an attempt to force GOP leadership to hold a tariff vote. "We are going to fulfill our constitutional responsibility, confirming judges, confirming members of the president's team. And we're going to do that with or without Jeff Flake," Barrasso said on "America's Newsroom" Thursday.

    The Democrat Stacey Abrams campaign is legally agitating for a whole new vote in Georgia, as Republican winner Brian Kemp performs the daily duties of the governor-elect in transition. Gwinnett County — a focus of the Abrams legal team’s efforts — finally certified its vote Thursday night during a divisive session at the election board, which prompted the police to be called. Abrams trails far behind Kemp in the vote count, but the Hillary Clinton prototype is hiring lawyers to stretch out their increasingly inane lawsuit strategy to get more rejected ballots onto the record. (READ: Fulton County Numbers Show Non-Citizens and Non-Registered Persons Voting). The Associated Press reports on the last-ditch Abrams effort with their headline: “Stacey Abrams’ team prepares push for new vote.” More at: https://bigleaguepolitics.com/sad-stacey-abrams-actually-wants-georgia-to-vote-again/

    In the name of scientific “progress,” Newcastle’s Freeman Hospital in the United Kingdom recently tried to pioneer the use of a surgical robot that it tasked with repairing a patient’s damaged heart valve, only to have the machine go completely bonkers and ultimately kill the man on the operating table. According to reports, this first-time-use robot not only physically assaulted a living medic while attempting to conduct its programmed surgery, but also implanted stitches into the patient’s heart in a manner that physicians present during the fiasco described as notbeing in “an organised fashion.” A situation that can only be described as total chaos, with human surgeons, doctors, and nurses having to scream at each other in order to overcome the “tinny” sound coming from the robot as they were trying to control it, the attempted surgery ended up being nothing short of a complete failure. And in the end, retired music teacher and conductor, Stephen Pettitt, the guinea pig patient in this medical experiment, ultimately lost his life. Lead surgeon admits that he was ill-prepared to operate the surgical robot, having skipped multiple training sessions During a hearing that followed this catastrophe, lead surgeon Sukumaran Nair admitted that he lacked proper experience in controlling and using the surgical robot, stating that he was “running before he could walk.” In other words, it was truly a case of medical negligence and malpractice on steroids. As later revealed by the U.K.’s Daily Mail Online, Nair not only missed a critical training session in Paris that would have taught him how to properly use the surgical robot, but he also wasn’t present for another training sessions that later took place at his own hospital, claiming that he was busy with another surgery at the time. While supervisory experts were supposed to have been present for this surgery-gone-wrong, which should have prevented this type of nightmare from ever even occurring, they, too, were reportedly missing when things started to hit the fan. Overseeing proctors were sipping lattes while surgical robot punctured patient’s aortic septum, splashing blood all over robot camera...
