Spain docks and refuels Russian hunter-killer sub
Spain accused of 'provocation' after letting Russian submarine refuel off Gibraltar
The Spanish government has been accused of further provocative behaviour over the contested British territory of Gibraltar after it allowed a Russian submarine to refuel at one of its ports just 19 miles from the Rock.
Security sources now fear that the state-of-the-art Novorossiysk, which passed through the English Channel last week, may now operate from a Russian naval base on the annexed Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea, The Independent can reveal.
Conservative backbenchers and defence experts have been quick to condemn the three-day visit by the Russian hunter-killer submarine to the port of Ceuta, a contested Spanish enclave on the Moroccan coast.
Ceuta is often described as Spain’s Gibraltar and is just 19 miles across the water from the British Overseas Territory, prompting a Conservative MP to label the visit a “clear provocation” by Spain designed to “intimidate the Gibraltarian people”.
The Russian vessel, which departed from Ceuta on Friday, took on supplies fuel and water to complete its journey from a northern Russian port to the Black Sea, while its 56-strong crew was granted shore leave to enjoy the tax haven’s nightlife.
Novorossiysk is an upgraded version of the Cold War Kilo-class submarine, known to Nato as Project 677. It is one of the quietest diesel class boats in the world, prompting the nickname “Black Hole”. She is set to join the Russian Black Sea Fleet where she will be used for intelligence gathering, tracking Nato submarines and potentially deploying special forces.

"It could go something like this: Romney still wanted to be president when he dropped out. But he was smart enough to know that many Republicans viewed him as damaged goods, a loser, and outdated. He saw many of his 2012 supporters getting behind Jeb Bush. Romney wanted to run for president, but he did not think he could win the grueling nomination contest. But, if the other Republican candidates faltered, he would be ready.
Continuing the explanation, something did make the other candidates falter. That something was Donald Trump, who took the air out of the sails of Jeb Bush and those of the other candidates. They were dead in the water. Trump’s aggressiveness and their weak and jumbled responses pushed them out of the race. Republican leaders had to accept Trump as the party’s nominee or rally around another candidate who could take out Trump in the late primaries and at the convention. That person was Mitt Romney. No longer damaged goods and loser, he was rested, fresh, and, in comparison to Trump, solidly presidential."

A Harris County sheriff's deputy was ambushed and killed while refueling his cruiser Friday night at a northwest Harris County service station. Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman identified the slain deputy as Darren Goforth, 47.
"He was pumping into his vehicle ... and the male suspect came up behind him and shot the deputy multiple times," said Deputy Thomas Gilliland at a press briefing.

Pentagon Not Targeting Islamic State Training Camps
No airstrikes against 60 camps producing 1,000 fighters monthly (via Lucianne)
Umm.... and you're surprised? Hello?
The Pentagon has not conducted airstrikes against an estimated 60 Islamic State (IS) training camps that are supplying thousands of fighters each month to the terror group, according to defense and intelligence officials.
The camps are spread throughout Islamic State-controlled areas of Iraq and Syria and are off limits in the U.S.-led international bombing campaign.
Additionally, the IS (also known as ISIS or ISIL) camps have been so successful that Islamic State leaders are considering expanding the camps to Libya and Yemen. Both states have become largely ungoverned areas
White House Slams ‘Pro-War Rally’ Featuring Trump, Cruz (via Lucianne)
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest says the event Republican presidential hopefuls Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and businessman Donald Trump plan to attend outside the Capitol next month is “pro-war.”
Earnest said the gathering in opposition to the international nuclear agreement with Iran will be “a big pro-war rally on the steps of the U.S. Capitol.”
Pressed on the word choice, Earnest said, “if a military strike were required, particularly if the rest of the international community is frustrated that the United States abandoned a reasonable and even effective diplomatic solution, it’s going to put us much closer to a military conflict, and once that military conflict starts, it’s difficult to see where that path ends.”
“I think it’s clear from any scrutiny of their position, that the position that they advocate makes … another war in the Middle East more likely,”
I warned you. I f*cking warned you. A Long Time Ago. Yes I did.
'Horrified' UN Chief Calls For Refugee Action
Ban Ki-Moon urges European governments to expand safe and legal channels of migration after the deaths of hundreds of refugees
Mr Ban said that a "large majority" of people undertaking such dangerous journeys are refugees who have the right to "protection and asylum", and called on all governments to act with compassion and humanity. He also said the conflicts and repression that force people to flee must be resolved.
Islam? I didn't say Islam. Did you say Islam? What ... are you some kind of phobe? (Kill him ... kill the Kike now!). Don't do the link. You don't want to see the pics (even though they are comparatively quite mild).
READ IT ALL
(And no, it isn't a very long read/tyvm). Caught last night's broadcast, on TBN (watched bout half an hour). Glad he's on our side (real glad). It's amazing, people of clear mind. Heart, soul, and spirit. And force of majesty. Completely invisible, to society at large. The way the IslamoCommieJunta, wants all enemies of the State, to be.
And G*d Bless You, Sir.
Regular libturd orgy today ... this morn (and the last couple of days as well). EVERY MSM platform. Without exception. Not some sort of lark, or coinky dink. Ths is what a fascist state looks like [duzz I hafta mention things are only going to get worse? (for only the 1,000th time now elmo)]. Katrina. Katrina. Katrina [I'm surprised no one interviewed Kanye (WTF's up with that?)]. Alt: Obama Still the Bringer of Light (all who to the ock bar!).

WHITE SUPREMACIST TAKES STAND IN JEWISH SITE SHOOTINGS [yeah, a rather untidy title. And one doesn't even have to be cynical (or suspicious)]
OLATHE, Kan. (AP) -- A white supremacist charged with killing three people at Jewish sites in suburban Kansas City spent more than two hours Friday telling jurors how he planned the attacks and is sorry he didn't kill more people.
[And the AP gets aroused, when they get to print "White Patriot Party", more than once (in article)]
He said he didn't initially know if he would have the courage to carry out the attacks, but afterward felt an exhilaration that dwarfed even the feeling of jumping out of airplanes when he was in the Army.
He said his only regret was that he killed the teenager, who he thought was older. But under cross-examination, Miller admitted that he would have been fine with killing Reat if he had been Jewish.
He said he was justified killing the other two because they were Jewish sympathizers, adding that he thought the prosecutor and judge also associated with Jews.
(Oh yeah ... bright eyes is representing himself)
Coward! [To your face? Not a problem]
STEWART CLAIMS HE DIDN'T SEE MAN ON TRACK BEFORE FATAL CRASH
NEW YORK (AP) -- NASCAR star Tony Stewart said he didn't see a driver walking on a dirt track in upstate New York last year before he struck and killed him, and noted the racer was impaired by marijuana and shouldn't have been outside his car, according to court papers filed Friday.
DESPITE VOLATILITY, ON-AIR RAMPAGE DIFFICULT TO PREDICT
I'm confused? I thought it was the gun's fault? We just get rid of all the guns. And we get rid of all our problems (unread of course).
Did watch, live on CNN, Trump's podium punchfest, yesterday aft/eve, from New Hampshire. Not all (of it), but a pert good healthy chunk [and everyone else (today), doing the feather on a string bit (as usual)].
On the stump? Easily the best of 'em all. But, leel blog reader, we been h'yar before (now haven't we). SPEECHIFYING IS NOT THE MEASURE OF A MAN (let alone, a leader). I will say, I do believe we/process benefit, from having him, on the stump, yes. And even Thank Him, for the effort. How it all shakes out? You got me.
No need to repeat my thoughts, regards Mr. Trump. Pound that nail (again and again). The latest (trial ballloon?), Palin (on the ticket). Oh yeah, that's REALLY (really) going to make me go buy a respirator. And enter the poll! After Palin, stuck a shiv in Bachman's back (and the Country's), back when. I don't want to be within a thousand miles of that stank. No. TYVM (spoken like Elvis). Get The F*ck Away From Me.
New Anechoic Room policy: we won't knowingly visit ANY website. That uses/employs stealth popup advertising. At all. PERIOD.
And, if we encounter such (in our travails), at other sites, unknowingly. We will simply close our browser/window. AT THAT MOMENT.
Go f*ck someone else's mind. Clown time is over. I don't give a rat's arse, where they are in the food chain (and never thought I was even the least bit spayshul, when at the tippy top). Nor do I care, how much I might miss.
Which of course, includes the once distinguished Breitbart. Now, dragged down into the turlit, by what's his name (sad that). Still on the fence, 'bout radio boy, the book peddler. Though, if he's willfully obtuse (for what purpose? To what end?), even once more (2x, in the last month). The decision won't be difficult [and yes, it WILL be my loss. No question (and who the fook am I? Nobody [that's right])].
We've got work to do. It ain't about me. It ain't about us (as individuals). It's about NOT losing. The greatest gift of all time (so that we then CAN go back. To our individual lives. As free men and women). How it is, that some are unable to see this moment in time, for what it is? Well, that's another book I WON'T WRITE (or even reference other/apropos).
The wheels are coming off society whole. And the world is being pitched into darkness. NOW. This minute (not next year). And this is the stupid kwap we gotta put up with. F*ck me.
If you're not busy tryin' to save the Country?
Maybe ... it's just me?
Shouldn't every Conswervo website on the planet, every radio jock/ette, every boob tube talkin' head, every atomic print outlet. EVERYONE ... be pimpin' the snot, out of Cruz/Trump's rally in D.C.. Against King Pigsh*t's Iran Treason?
Shouldn't everyone be booking their flight as we speak. Grabbing a hotel room. Shouldn't there be ONE MILLION AMERICANS there?
(Or) maybe that's just me?
Josh Earnest, thanks for the shoutout (re: the Cruz/Trump rally in D.C., against the Global Iran Treason).
Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha (why yes, I duzz feel beddah!).
