We're not really disagreeing. My point was simply that it had more to do with mob bosses cooperating than nation-States. Their arrests were coordinated by non-state actors, as were their transfers. This is nefarious, and probably bolsters her claims. Sometimes the mob bosses win.

The "Mob Bosses" are what we commonly call the Russian Oligarchs.

Vlad Putin is the boss of them all. Nation/States and mob have merged.

See Donald Trump and the US Government as another example.

That might be an even worse idea. You don't want errant aircraft wandering around willy nilly when there's five thousand of them aloft at any given moment.
Without enough ATC resources, already stretched to the limit before the shut-show, those errant aircraft tend to start behaving more like errant Russian space junk, trajectory-wise.
You just never know where one of them might end up.
Oh wait, did I just give away Donald Trump's secret plan, something to do with errant airplanes crashing into something?

Ohhhhhhh SNAP!!!!

But I guarantee you he'd never blame the Russians, even if the "mysteriously erased and now unknown markings" errr..Russian tail numbers proved they did it.

Oh well, the 9/11 conspiracy theory peeps were getting bored anyway and we need some more authoritarianism and one less election in 2020.

It's becoming eerily apparent that Trump wouldn't think twice about creating a brand new 9/11 to facilitate canceling future elections.
My God, that Stephen Miller is one oily mf-er. Ain't no way his fingerprints aren't all over this. Trump isn't smart enough to have dreamed this up "all by hisself".

By the way, is it possible that Miss Lindsey has been dreaming of replacing Melania?

Quote:
"According to Will, Graham’s biggest sin — to date — is his belief that Trump should bypass Congress and declare a national emergency in order to get his vanity project border wall built."


Oh land sakes mercy me, clutch mah pearls.
A self loathing closeted beta bottom. They are dangerous to both straight and gay alike.

And George F. Will, ever the eternal optimist, doesn't even understand that Miss Lindsey is unaware that Stephen Miller is the real President now. Trump's busy in his Tweet Room grinding up more Adderall to snort.

Ain't no way in Hell President Miller is going to waste a perfectly good national emergency over a silly wall, he has bigger plans.

Quote:
“Stay focused on this: Anyone — in Graham-speak, ANYONE — who at any time favors declaring an emergency, or who does not denounce the mere suggestion thereof, thereby abandons constitutional government,” he wrote.


ROFLMAO...try more like: We're heading toward abandoning ALL government as we know it.

It's a brand new day in Murrikuh, and we're about to witness the end of democracy by presidential fiat. That's what that special Presidential Alert button on our smartphones is for.

Jumpin Jehosephat, another Mormon Gay Conversion Therapist comes out.

David Matheson on Facebook

Quote:
A year ago I realized I had to make substantial changes in my life. I realized I couldn’t stay in my marriage any longer. And I realized that it was time for me to affirm myself as gay.


At least Dr. Robert Spitzer finally admitted that "gay conversion therapy" is HARMFUL.

This guy still thinks he helped people.

I've been saying this for over a week, now: #TrumpShutdown would end in 1 or 2 days if ALL of the Air Traffic Controllers and ALL of the TSA called in sick for two days in a row.

I guarantee it. smile
