US deploys aircraft carrier and bombers after 'troubling indications' from Iran

The US is sending an aircraft carrier and a bomber task force to the Middle East in response to a “number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings” from Iran, the national security advisor John Bolton has said.

It was unclear on Sunday night what Iranian actions Bolton was referring to. There have been no recent incidents in the Persian Gulf where US and Iranian navies are routinely in close proximity and the Abraham Lincoln carrier strike group was already bound for the Gulf a month before Bolton made his announcement.


Bolton gave no details of the alleged “troubling and escalatory indications and warnings” from Iran. Mark Dubowitz, the head of the Foundation for the Defence of Democracies who has long supported a tough approach to Iran, argued that Hamas rocket attacks against Israel could have been orchestrated by Iran as part of a campaign against the US and its regional allies.

“Actually, ‘intimidating’ the regime in Iran by promising overwhelming force in response to intel that they may be considering striking US assets or allies is called deterrence and could help dissuade them,” Dubowitz wrote on

Here comes the war. Now expect martial law and no 2020 elections.

Getting impatient. Where the hell are the Mueller indicments??? Why don't they impeach?

Transcripts were release on the 2/7. A week later and nothing! This is BS. I'm beginning to think they aren't going to move on King Donald at all so it gives the Dems more traction to flip all branches to blue.

Polar vortex this...

Sometime in the 1970's when I was about 12 years old, the temperatures at night in central Maine went down to -43F for about three weeks. That's not even a record. The lowest recorded temp in Maine was -50F. As a kid I remember that after it got below -13F it didn't much matter, it was just damned cold. No one went on and on about frost bite or danger. you just dressed for the weather and that was that. People just had to deal. The cars were fitted with head bold heaters, and my brother would go out in the middle of the night and start the car to keep the anti freeze from coagulating so he could get to work on time. Daytime temperatures were a balmy -23 degrees during that stretch. There was a lot of complaining, but no one died. I seem to remember that people were much more pragmatic (almost stoic) back then. It wasn't even news.

The media is all about stirring it up and manufacturing crisis to make sure you stay tuned.

Can Louise Mensch now say "I told you so"?

Louise Mensch was screaming about this existence of SIGINT and 5-Eyes surveillance, and treason since June of 2017. She obviously had some connections with inside intelligence. I think she guesses on a lot of stuff and tried to piece things together into a believable scenario in her articles but on balance has been way ahead of the media.

Just got a ROBO text from Republican a-holes urging me to call Susan Collins

and tell her to vote for Kavanaugh!! How the F*CK do they have my cell phone number!? They text a number to call, but it doesn't go directly to her office - they are probably polling to see how many people call the given number to see if there list is well targeted. I did click the number only because I was going to urge her NOT to vote for KavaNaugh. I hope that doesn't count in anyway as a tacit agreement with their message.

Republican spin on the affects of releasing "the memo"

So I was just listening MSNBC where a repug came on and explain that McCabe left because of what was being released in the "memo". What total shitholes these people are. They force this guy out then point to him leaving and say see! see! they're all leaving because they're all so dishonest! I hate these house republican bastards.

Local FOX radio station trying to excuse tRumps comments.

I was listening to see how the repukes would spin this one and heard a guy on the morning show try to excuse this by saying that tRump meant the condition of the country - explaining that Haiti is in terrible condition (physically) and that someone in a private setting might refer to it as a "s---hole".

Rome is burning,

and all I hear on MSM is about sexual harassment in the workplace. I'm not saying that this isn't important, but really, we have a madman in the white house and that needs to be front and center of the conversation until our world is safe once again.

not quite on point

I think he is advocating exposure, not violence. Make it clear who this group is, what they believe, and tie them squarely to the Republican party that empowered and sheltered them.

Welcome to the world of tRump.

Systemic bigotry

At least that's how I saw it the minute Mitch McConnell vowed no cooperation with the Obama administration. A Bunch of rich white guys all grumbling because a black man had bested them at their own game.
