Tuesday Night News & Notes

Sphere: Related Content

The Christmas season is upon us. Feel free to say Feliz Navidad, Merry Christmas or Happy Hanukkah to those whom it may apply to, this is the America post-PC America, it was ruined ironically by  liberal college students begging for free tuition and a bunch of other free shit.

Anyway, here's what's happening:

-Spike Lee is talented. I believe Do the Right Thing was his best but that's arguable. And i will say that one of my favorite Spike Lee moments was when Reggie Miller put a dagger into both Spike and the Knicks in the playoffs. But sometimes Spike goes overboard and comparing Donald Trump to Hitler is overboard. Besides, Bush was compared to Hitler so many times, it kind of lost it's effect so those saying it just sound like idiots.

-Another batch of Hillary's emails were released and now the tally stands at 999 classified emails she sent. That would out anyone else in prison but for Dems I guess breaking secrecy laws is a resume enhancer.

-Obama told Turkey to shut it's shared border with Syria to keep fighters from joining ISIS. Turkey responded by saying that Obama should take care of his business at the border we share with Mexico. What an embarrassment this guy is and can we actually measure just how much he's hurt US relations around the world? By the way, I really like Duncan Hunter whose dad used to be my representative in east county San Diego. He dropped this one on Obama today.

-So the guy who threatened to shoot up the University of Chicago isn't a white supremacist after all. Hmm. We have past the one year anniversary of the day that Jon Gabriel posted what has to be the greatest tweet ever:

If you ever wondered what mission creep looks like, we're seeing it in Iraq and Syria as we speak:

Defense Secretary Ash Carter says the U.S. is expanding the U.S. special operations force in Iraq to help Iraqi and Kurdish forces fight Islamic State militants.Carter told the House Armed Services Committee on Tuesday that over time, these special operators will be able to conduct raids, free hostages, gather intelligence and capture IS leaders. Carter says that will improve intelligence and generate more targets. He did not offer troop numbers, but said it was being done in cooperation with the Iraqi government.
-And finally; The Mossad sent operatives to kill anyone who participated in or was involved in planning the attack on Israeli athletes in Munich in 1974. Many accused Israel of going to extremes and taking it too far. But now we have info that says they didn't take it far enough.
