Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe late Friday, less than two days shy of his retirement, ending the career of an official who had risen to serve as second-in-command at the bureau.

You may be familiar with Joe. In the eighties he was in a band called D.O.A..

He went by the name Joey Shithead.

Would you vote for him?

In the summer of 2009, after my then g/f and I had an argument, we both went off in different directions in a local mall. Once I got on the nearby escalator and looked up, guess who was on it right above me? He looked right at me, nodded his head and said, "Hey." Oddly enough, I was wearing my 2007 ZPZ shirt.

Would I vote for him? No. His politics are too far left. Nice guy, though. He's actually run in other local elections over the years...

Former US president Barack Obama visits New Zealand
Last updated 15:00, March 22 2018

What you need to know about former US President Barack Obama's visit to New Zealand:


* Obama arrived at Auckland Airport by private jet from Singapore late Tuesday night.


* He then travelled by helicopter to Kauri Cliffs luxury lodge in Northland on Wednesday morning.

* He was joined by former prime minister John Key. The pair played golf at Kauri Cliffs' private course before Obama stayed at luxury lodge The landing.

(Ghost note: coincidentally former prime minister John Key is now on the board of Air New Zealand who are partially funding Bazza's trip to NZ)

* It's understood Obama dined on Wednesday night with 20 guests including Air New Zealand chief executive Chris Luxon at the Purerua Peninsula resort.

* The pair golfed again on Thursday morning at Tara Iti in Mangawhai.

* He will speak to 900 invited guests at a function on Thursday.

* The only public engagement will be a pōwhiri at Government house.

(Ghost note: the pōwhiri is a traditional Māori challenge/welcome, Bazza got the "full" ceremony)

* He's expected to meet privately with Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and is expected to raise the Kermadec ocean sanctuary.

* The visit has been arranged by the NZ-US Council.

*He will be moving on to Sydney on Friday, and then on to Japan.

French Gendarme dies of his wounds. He took the place of a woman hostage and received multiple gun shots from the islamist Fuck. Three other innocents were massacred by the scumbag.

Had a mail from Tumblr about the fake accounts. Apparently I either liked or reblogged posts by them, I can't for the life of me recall what they were about. I only use Tumblr for my Dir En Grey-fix.

Majority of $1.3 Trillion US Omnibus Spending Bill Goes to Military

Image

Jason Ditz/ Posted on March 23, 2018


The last minute signing of the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill in the US is a big windfall for the Pentagon, who will be getting the majority of the money, in the realm of $700 billion. This includes 14 new ships, 28 new helicopters, and 56 of the costly F-35 warplanes. This $700 billion does not include other military-related spending, including the VA...

The primary purpose of US military spending is not to defend the United States, but to continuously transfer as much wealth as possible from the pockets of working taxpayers to the bank accounts of large “defense” contractors.

I'm wondering if you'll ever get around to posting photos of Trump's dead babies? Considering how hyper critical you were of Obama and Clinton on this subject....Giving Trump a free pass?

Under the Trump administration, US airstrikes are killing more civilians

According to research from the nonprofit monitoring group Airwars, the first seven months of the Trump administration have already resulted in more civilian deaths than under the entirety of the Obama administration. Airwars reports that under Obama’s leadership, the fight against IS led to approximately 2,300 to 3,400 civilian deaths. Through the first seven months of the Trump administration, they estimate that coalition air strikes have killed between 2,800 and 4,500 civilians.

Researchers also point to another stunning trend – the “frequent killing of entire families in likely coalition airstrikes.” In May, for example, such actions led to the deaths of at least 57 women and 52 children in Iraq and Syria.
