Naturally.  It's not like they held up an entire Supreme Court nomination recently or anything...

He is in fact the man I hate most in US politics.

More than Trump, Pence, and Ryan?

More than all three of those cunts put together.
Well, that's hardly my fault.  I was just doing what I do, doing my little dance, singing my little song, you know?  And then Hirley0 got on the dance floor and said

SHAKE THAT
First ^  Then V

And I did.  I didn't feel like I had any choice.  Between P-Funk and Hirley0, I became the man reptillian menace I am today.

Bootsy Collins did this to me.

Understandably, since he's been doing major damage to US politics for longer than the rest of those shitweasels, and they couldn't get away with it to the extent they do if he was actually at least somewhat responsible in discharging his duties.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/two-bags-of-cash-for-boko-haram-the-untold-story-of-how-nigeria-freed-its-kidnapped-girls-1513957354

Quote
Nigerian officials complained bitterly of social media’s intrusion and the compromises it forced them to consider. Some believed the girls’ fame only prolonged their captivity. Others resented the lack of focus placed on tens of thousands of other children the insurgents had abducted or murdered.

Then there is the matter of the ransom, which has never before been disclosed. Nigeria’s government hasn’t publicly detailed what it offered Boko Haram, or where any funds came from. Several senior officials confirmed that the swap included the release of five captured militants and a total of three million euros, delivered in two drop-offs.

“We had no choice,” said one cabinet minister. “And if we had to pay the same price again, we would.”

To a threadbare insurgency that had been driven into the mountains, the two payments in 2016 and 2017 represented a timely windfall. Since they collected the money, the group has stepped up its terrorist attacks. The number of suicide bombs detonated in Nigeria, most strapped to children, has seen a fourfold increase from the previous year.

No HA HA here, just a pretty grim outlook for the region for the next 5-10 years or so at least.
Nine naked Men just walking down the road will cause a heap of trouble for all concerned.

A Virgina man is running for Congress he’s pro-rape, pro-incest, runs an incel website, and is pro-pedophelia.


He’s running on the Libertarian ticket.

What a country!

I'm only surprised he's not on the Republican ticket, since "pedophile incestuous incel white supremacist" is going to be their base in another decade.

Someone at the WaPo woke up and noticed that for a "defeated" group, ISIS seem to be doing an awful lot of damage in northern Iraq.

Good job morons, it's only been reported on in Iraqi and Kurdish media for months.  I know, because I've been collating their reports and writing reports for an English-language audience on it.  You don't dare travel through the Hamrin mountains without a heavily armed escort, and they all better be from the higher class PMCs, if you haven't got the Iraqi Army or PMFs along for the ride.  Local sheikhs and militia commanders who fought ISIS are assassinated in broad daylight.  Kirkuk governate is contested territory everywhere outside of Kirkuk itself.  Markets in Baghdad are bombed every other week, despite having some of the toughest security in the country.  And this has all been going on since January.

But no, ISIS have staged a "comeback".  Just now. 

I want to punch the subeditor responsible for that title.

Violence in Iraq has remained pretty steady since December 2017, and ISIS has been responsible for the majority of it, even accounting for and removing the death tallies due to the mass graves that the Iraqi Army keeps uncovering.

And it's not like this wasn't predictable.  What did they do in 2008-9?  Retreat to the remote areas of Ninewa and Diyala governorates, establish zones of control and income (protection rackets, kidnapping, smuggling and hijacking).  Use those to fund attacks on outposts and assassinations of local political, military and religious figures.  Put in place a shadow government, build up forces until sufficient manpower allows for the overthrow of the state. It's classic guerilla warfare, Mao style.  They dominate the countryside, then infiltrate the cities, then establish parallel control.

The Iraqi security services all know this, of course.  The PMF commanders in particular are under no illusions - they know they're marked for death by ISIS assassins. But try getting anyone in any actual newspaper in Europe or North America to take notice.  Nope, "mission accomplished" time to pack up shit and pay attention to something else.  Again, just like 2008-9, when most foreign correspondents pulled out of Iraq.  And then they were surprised when ISIS took Fallujah and Mosul, claiming "no-one" could have predicted it, when *ahem* some of us did.
