Just to be clear: We both know the answer is that Hillary Clinton, while not the type to eat babies, will occasionally send a Hellfire missile their way?

Hillary Clinton is  the type to eat babies, next up on Fox News.

:P :D ... kudos to DMan on his Trump Mind Meld.

And for my next trick, Trump will say something calculatedly stupid, like I don't know, "Mike Pence likes gay people".  No, not stupid enough, too blunt.  But not fabricated on the spot sounding....how about, "Erdogan must go".  He's going to take that stance tomorrow, but ALSO say that Turkey needs to be stable.  It combines both stances on what all sides in America feel about the situation, depending on what they know about it, but leaves room for him to claim he was right all along whichever way things turn out.  He'll express regret that the coup failed, but also state that he's glad Turkey will still kill terrorists, and that Erdogan needs to step down, or he'll die.  Then later, when confronted about this, he'll state that the press is out to get him, and note that he wanted Turkey to be stable, given their efforts in fighting ISIS which "is way more effective than Obama ever has been", so of course he should stay in power.  Then he'll find out he's essentially a dictator, and praise him, fully backing him for his alleged war crimes and human rights violations.

Turkey is getting weird in a hurry.
EU's lead guy for Turkey joining, has said they had a pre-existing list of arrestees.
And it's a massive list.

Rueters is reporting f-16s locked onto Erdogan's plane, but didn't fire.
http://www.reuters.com/article/us-turkey-security-plot-insight-idUSKCN0ZX0Q9
... and regardless there's the radar info from Greece.

Wikileaks says they've got a pile of stuff they're gonna release too.
France's socialist Foreign Minister questioned whether Turkey will be anti-ISIS (i.e. al-Qaeda) at all.
Wow.

Turkey's been in trouble for a while, but because they've been somewhat anti-ISIS we as a country and Europe as a group has been largely forgiving their transgressions.  So now it's come to a head, and I had to listen to some pundits the other day express surprise at something that I was expecting, and anyone should expect, to happen, happening.  I wasn't expecting a coup, specifically, I was expecting Turkey to just....kind of explode a bit.  Be it protests and riots against Erdogan, or a coup (we've known the military there isn't really....under control of its leaders as much as most military commanders would like, and this is confirmation), or terrorist attacks becoming more frequent (hey....wait a second....), whatever.

Russian Today says they got hit by a DDOS right at the start of the coup.
A) that's very strange why them?
B) any body else have proof?

Turkey's Facebook got throttled down in the middle of the whole thing,
and then got spooled back up within 1 hour while  it was still on.

Twitter seems to have been the most up to date news site.
Twitter.
Dang I'm gonna have to git wit' it.

Still, being some amount backhandedly pro-ISIS (alQaeda, IS ISIL, Nusra, whatevs)
is really bad form, for any interaction with the USA and now France too.

Library Of Congress is reporting on it's twitter page, that it got hit by a DDoS attack.  Turkish hacker group has already claimed responsibility.

Talk of moving Nukes from Incirlik airbase, is now mainstream.

That reminds me, we killed over 80 pre-terrorists in Syria.

So...Wikileaks released a bunch of emails to/from the DNC and (D)s.  In it, the DNC and its employees discuss preventing Sanders from doing anything, call his supporters 'Bernie Bros' and 'the insurgency'.  Tried to use his religion to discredit him to voters.  There's hidden donations, and an email from them to donor about how the donor shouldn't email them at all.  There's a wealth of issue that need to be addressed in it, and....wow.  They even sent an email to Chuck Todd to tell him to "stop this".  What?

EDIT: Also, apparently needing to appeal more to conservatives, Hillary has chosen Tim Kaine as her running mate.

Strange/funny/sad that Trump pretending to be religious, is more valuable than Bernie not pretending to be religious.

Just to be clear: We both know the answer is that Hillary Clinton, while not the type to eat babies, will occasionally send a Hellfire missile their way?

True and sad.
The idea that the USA can somehow play pin-point bombing ala a video game, is a stupid idea and yet that fiction seems so necessary for the American public.

Holy crap this is awesome.  :lol I so hope this blows up in their fucking faces at the convention. I have to be in Philly just a few days after it is over. I'm tempted to drive up there a bit early just to go watch the shitstorm. (Although... I still want Trump to lose... more than I care about the DNC's corruption... sadly... So I'll probably still vote for Hillary...  :banghead)

We've hit Peak McCarthyism.  The (R)s are doing it in the neo-McCarthy method of accusing people are secret Muslims and such.  The Dems are now doing it the old school way, blaming the WikiLeaks hack on the Russians to try to help Trump.

To bad the race is mostly between Trump and Clinton. If any of the third party candidates had a real shot at winning I'd vote for one of them instead. I really hate this election cycle.
