    Pervert (Clinton) Alert

    Bill Clinton ogles young women with his fly undone His fly is undone. Worse still, he has his left hand in his pants pocket. Was he diddling himself? This is a former President of the Unites States of America. I sure hope the pic is a photoshop. Can some techie FOTM reader help us out?
  3. Iraq election results: Shi'ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr on course to beat Iran-backed PM POWERFUL nationalist cleric Moqtada al-Sadr was leading in Iraq's parliamentary election with more than half the votes counted, the electoral commission said, a surprise comeback for a Shi'ite leader who had been sidelined by Iran-backed rivals. Shi'ite militia chief Hadi al-Amiri's bloc, which is backed by Tehran, was in second place, according to the count of more than 95 percent of the votes cast in 10 of Iraq's 18 provinces. The preliminary results are a setback for Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi who, despite entering the election as the apparent frontrunner, appeared to be running third. Unlike Abadi, a rare ally of both the United States and Iran, Sadr is an enemy of both countries that have wielded influence in Iraq after the U.S.-led invasion that toppled Sunni dictator Saddam Hussein and ushered the Shi'ite majority to power. Sadr has led two uprisings against U.S. forces in Iraq and is one of the few Shi'ite leaders to distance himself from Iran. Sadr's apparent victory does not mean his bloc could necessarily form the next government as whoever wins the most seats must negotiate a coalition government, expected to be formed within 90 days of the official results. Security and commission sources had earlier said Abadi was leading the election, which was held on Saturday and is the first since the defeat of Islamic State in the country. Turnout was 44.52 per cent with 92 per cent of votes counted, the Independent High Electoral Commission said - that was significantly lower than in previous elections. Full results are due to be officially announced later today. Sadr and Amiri both came in first in four of the 10 provinces where votes were counted, but the cleric's bloc won significantly more votes in the capital, Baghdad, which has the highest number of seats. The commission did not announce how many seats each bloc had gained and said it would do so after announcing the results from the remaining provinces. A document provided to Reuters by a candidate in Baghdad that was also circulating among journalists and analysts showed results from all 18 provinces. Reuters could not independently verify the document's authenticity but the results in it for the 10 provinces announced by the electoral commission matched those of the commission. Reuters calculations based on the document showed Sadr had won the nationwide popular vote with more than 1.3 million votes and gained 54 of parliament’s 329 seats. He was followed by Amiri with more than 1.2 million votes, translating into 47 seats, and Abadi with more than 1 million votes and 42 seats. Sadr will not become prime minister as he did not run in the election but his apparent victory puts him in a position to pick someone for the job. Winning the largest number of seats does not automatically guarantee that, however. The other winning blocs would have to agree on the nomination. In a 2010 election, Vice President Ayad Allawi's group won the largest number of seats, albeit with a narrow margin, but he was blocked from becoming prime minister for which he blamed Tehran. The same fate could befall Sadr. Iran has publicly stated it would not allow his bloc to govern. "We will not allow liberals and communists to govern in Iraq," Ali Akbar Velayati, top adviser to the Islamic Republic's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said in February.

    Is it too late???

    "Do Not Put any more into the IQD than you YOU Can Afford to Lose. Be sure you buy the New notes from a Reputable Dealer." I agree. No risk, no goodies. I have bought from a few people in the VIP. I would recommend that you get there ASAP......
  5. The video did not come with but hit the camp tab and it will come up. Anyone with better computer skills could probable post it for me.
  6. On Friday, Green Beret Tim Kennedy live-streamed himself being waterboarded in his backyard by friends in order to demonstrate his belief that the procedure is not "torture," as some claim. Kennedy, who is also a UFC fighter, made the video to protest those who oppose Gina Haspel, Trump’s nominee for director of the CIA. Haspel has been criticized for her work at a CIA black site in Thailand where "enhanced interrogation techniques" such as waterboarding were used in the aftermath of 9/11. In 2005, then-head of the CIA’s National Clandestine Service (NCS), Jose Rodriguez, allegedly asked Haspel, who was his chief of staff, to write a cable directing personnel to destroy 92 tapes which are said to have shown the interrogations of Abu Zubaydah and Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri. Rodriguez claims that he ordered the destruction of the tapes because the faces of CIA agents could allegedly be seen. However, Haspel was cleared of wrongdoing after a "disciplinary review" in 2011. In the review, then-Deputy Director of the CIA Mike Morell writes: "Ms. Haspel claims that she believed — incorrectly as it turned out — that Mr. Rodriguez was going to obtain approval from then (CIA) Director (Porter) Goss before releasing the cable." In April, Morell released a statement that reads in part: During an interview with ProPublica, however, Rodriguez said that "he told Haspel directly that he was going to take matters into his own hands, and that she responded by saying she was worried about the consequences that he might face for such a brash act." ProPublica then quotes Rodriguez directly: "She didn’t say, 'Don’t do it.' She may have thought I was going to talk to more people about it before hitting 'send,' but I had made up my mind that I was going to follow through." According to the Associated Press, "little else is publicly known about her work with the program [black site in Thailand]." At the beginning of Kennedy’s video (2:46), he states, "I just want everybody to understand what waterboarding is. Waterboarding is an opportunity for us to get information, useful information, out of somebody we’re questioning. There is no permanent damage, and it’s just the fear of water that scares people." Later (23:37), Kennedy asks the live-stream audience: "Does this look like torture to you guys?", although he did admit that it’s highly uncomfortable. At about 24 minutes into the video, they up the ante, and go "CIA" level, pouring water over Kennedy’s towel-covered face for longer periods of time. The entire video lasts about 42 minutes, and can be watched below:

    Positive or Negative?

  8. According to Shabi, TNT (Tony Tofineo) lives in a van down by the river. I guess he likes it too. LOL
  9. DEVELOPING: Brennan With Strzok and John Kerry Worked to Set Up Russian Espionage Traps For Minor Players in Trump Camp A major new front is developing after the House discovered the FBI had a spy planted inside of the Trump campaign on top of the illegal wiretaps. See the rest at:
  10. If the enemy were to break both my shoulders and my fingers beat me like a pinata, I would have probably sung like a songbird too. Even though he wrecked two training jets, started a fire by bomb explosion killing 134, causing $72 million in damages to the USS Forrestal, I have to give him credit for not opting out of the H Hilton.
  11. The Trump administration is examining a new plan to help Iranians fighting the hardline regime in Iran following America's exit from the landmark nuclear deal and reimposition of harsh economic sanctions that could topple a regime already beset by protests and a crashing economy, according to a copy of the plan obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
