>Republican Rep. Steve King of Iowa was stripped from his committee assignments on Monday night after his controversial remarks on whether white supremacy was offensive drew backlash from lawmakers in both parties.

>"We discussed the worn out label 'racist' and my observation that other slanderous labels have been increasingly assigned to Conservatives by the Left, who injected into our current political dialogue such terms as Nazi, Fascist, 'White Nationalist, White Supremacist, — Western Civilization, how did THAT language become offensive?[sic]'" King said of his interview with The Times in a statement released on Monday.

>King said, according to the Times report. "Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?"

>Following the publication of the report, King issued as statement calling himself a nationalist, and saying that although he supported "western civilization's values," said he did not condone "white nationalism and white supremacy."

Saying this is yet another example of why the left cannot meme.

Gritty is also an example of why the left cannot meme: it's a hockey mascot adopted by the left as a political statement, in response to someone the right already did first. It's literally an avatar representing the collective insufferability of every wordswordswordswords longpost comic ever made, into a meme literally even shilled for by mainstream media. It's about as opposite of a "grassroots" or organically viral meme you can get.

Saudi teen: Starbucks, bacon, eggs and bare legs

Rahaf Mohammed tasted a slice of her new life in Canada by trying bacon for the first time, downing a Starbucks coffee and showing her bare legs.

The Saudi teen who was fleeing her abusive family was granted asylum last week following a desperate bid to escape the oppressive life that was ahead of her.

Mohammed, 18, claimed she feared for her life.

In yet another crushing defeat for Trump's fascist sycophants, the GoFundMe campaign that aimed to raise $1 billion for the border wall is shutting down, and the $20 million raised will be refunded to donors.

GoFundMe spokesman Bobby Whithorne told INSIDER that when the campaign was started, founder Brian Kolfage promised donors that all donations would be used to pay for a border wall between the US and Mexico if the $1 billion goal was met.

"However, that did not happen," Whithorne said. "This means all donors will receive a refund."

Kolfage, a US veteran and Trump supporter, updated the campaign's GoFundMe page on Friday announcing the refunds. He also introduced a new 501(c)(4) non-profit Florida Corporation named "We Build the Wall, Inc.," where donors can redirect their refunds to if they still wish for their money to be used, in one way or another, to build a wall.

In his update, Kolfage said that upon seeing the fundraiser's "success," he reached out to several experts in "politics, national security, construction, and finance" and created a team that "has spent countless hours over the holidays reviewing all issues pertaining to the construction of a southern border wall."

"Unanimously," Kolfage wrote, "we have all come to the conclusion that the federal government won't be able to accept our donations anytime soon."

This is why, he wrote, his new non-profit will now accept any donations previously made to the GoFundMe.

Among the group of "experts" listed on the GoFundMe page are Erik Prince, an American businessman known as the founder of the security firm Blackwater (he is also Betsy DeVos' brother), Sheriff David Clarke, the former Milwaukee County sheriff known for his controversial views on immigration, and frequent Trump campaigner Steve Ronnebeck.

Democratic Socialist New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez criticized a reporter for not describing Republican Congressman Steve King as “racist.”

In a tweet Friday, David M. Drucker, a senior political correspondent for DC Examiner, tweeted that Republican Congressman Steve King of Iowa and House minority whip Steve Scalise had spoken, following remarks in which King defended white nationalism.

King “'initiated' a convo today w/ @SteveScalise to inform them he would speak on floor to address his racially-tinged remarks,” tweeted Drucker, who says on his profile he is also a CNN political analyst and Vanity Fair contributor.

Hundreds of Twitter users criticised the reporter for the use of the phrase “racially tinged,” saying he should have used the word “racist” instead.

Among them was Ocasio Cortez.

"You spelled “racist” wrong,” she tweeted in response to Drucker.

"At this point those who use the terms “racially tinged” or “racially charged” to describe white supremacy should be prepared to explain why they chose to employ those terms instead of “racist”/“racism.” If the answer is their own discomfort, they’re protecting the wrong people," she continued.

Drucker thanked Ocasio Cortez for her comment, responding,"appreciate the edit."

President Donald Trump is personally paying for the meals that will be provided to the Clemson University football team during their national championship celebration at the White House on Monday night, CNN has learned.

Earlier Monday, Trump told reporters, unprompted, that he is serving "McDonald's, Wendy's and Burger King's with some pizza."

"I think that would be their favorite food, so we'll see what happens," he added.

"The President wanted to host a fun event to celebrate the College Football National Champion Clemson Tigers," deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley told CNN in a statement.

"Because the Democrats refuse to negotiate on border security, much of the residence staff at the White House is furloughed -- so the President is personally paying for the event to be catered with some of everyone's favorite fast foods," he said.

Returning to the White House on Monday evening from a brief trip to New Orleans for a speech, Trump told reporters that he was providing the Tigers with the fast-food dinner -- "paid for by me" -- as a result of the shutdown.

"Because of the shutdown, you know we have the great Clemson team with us, the national champions. So we went out and we ordered American fast food, paid for by me," Trump said. "Lots of hamburgers, lots of pizza."

In a dramatic escalation of his efforts to sway public opinion, President Trump chose the gravity of the Oval Office to try to create a sense of crisis in pursuit of an elusive campaign promise.

His speech was a compendium of arguments, some of dubious nature, that he has made before: The border is being overrun by dangerous criminals who have committed violent crimes in this country; migrant women and children are being victimized; the opioid crisis stems directly from a flood tide of illegal drugs crossing the southern border; his plan to secure that border includes advanced technology, more law enforcement personnel and, yes, a barrier costing $5.7 billion that would be made of steel slats, in deference, he said, to Democrats who oppose a concrete wall — a change Democrats say they never asked for.

Ultimately, there will have to be an agreement to reopen the government, though exactly on whose terms remains the sticking point. Trump may hope he can get his wall by means other than compromise; Democrats may think they can crush Trump right at the start of a new Congress. That is the nature of the standoff and the reason the president felt the need to use the ultimate bully pulpit to make his case Tuesday night.

You mean the walls that are always in cities and towns, separating human occupied, closed space, and privately owned buildings and properties from the outside? To answer your question, no I don't often see walls separating entire open spaced deserts, forests, and grasslands, which are not privately owned by any single entity. This describes most of where the border wall would be built on.

Again, this is not necessarily true. There is no reason why government couldn't operate like any business. Supply and demand is universal. Government is not bad at economics because it's government. That being said I don't advocate for government to produce things a market could easily do.

>The only thing that the government truly excels at is war.
This is also wrong. Governmentso excel at creating new markets. Only governments have the resources to invest in things with no clear return on investment. Most of modern tech depend on Satellites which came from government programs. Manufacturing of clothing came from the need for army uniforms in the civil war. As just a few examples.
Basically everything comes from government investment to get it off the ground, then it trickles into the market where market forces act and we see great improvement from compitition.

Washington (CNN)ISIS has claimed responsibility for a deadly explosion that killed four Americans -- two US service members, a defense contractor and a Department of Defense civilian -- in the Syrian city of Manbij on Wednesday, according to the US military.

All four US personnel that were killed were Americans, according to Commander Sean Robertson, a spokesman for the Pentagon.
The civilian was an intelligence expert who was with the troops hoping to collect information about security and adversaries in the area, according to three US officials.

"Two US service members, one Department of Defense (DoD)civilian and one contractor supporting DoD were killed and three service members were injured while conducting a local engagement in Manbij, Syria," US Central Command said in a statement.

"Initial reports indicate an explosion caused the casualties, and the incident is under investigation," the statement said.

Prior to Wednesday's attack, only two US service members had been killed in action in Syria since the start of the campaign in 2014.

The US-led coalition confirmed earlier Wednesday that US service members were killed in the attack, but did not provide details regarding the number of casualties at the time and said the service members were "conducting a routine patrol" at the time of the explosion.

Trump's wing of the party is defeated again, but Republicans voters still have to live with the sins that they elected a fascist though.

https://www.thedailybeast.com/gop-ejects-charlottesville-hate-marcher-james-allsup-after-daily-beast-expose

A Washington state Republican committee voted to boot an openly fascist podcaster, seven months after The Daily Beast revealed his racist ties.

James Allsup, 22, is a member of the white nationalist group Identity Evropa, and marched with them during the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017. Despite his public affiliation with the racist right, Allsup managed to obtain a role with the Whitman County Republican Committee earlier this year, after he ran unopposed. Seventh months after Allsup’s quiet election, Whitman County Republicans moved to eject him from their group, the Moscow-Pullman Daily News reported Monday.

In early June, Allsup announced that he’d become a precinct committee officer (PCO) with his county’s Republican committee. Under Washington law, PCOs are publicly elected officials who manage local affairs for specific political parties. The role is small, but PCOs earn a vote and a voice within the local committee.

Allsup’s election was part of a plan to infiltrate mainstream Republican groups and pull them to the far right.

In an Identity Evropa podcast earlier this year, Allsup recommended listeners work with “three or four fashy goy [fascist, non-Jewish] friends” and “take over your school’s College Republicans group and move it to essentially being an alt-right club.”

After The Daily Beast reported on Allsup’s PCO role, some Republicans distanced themselves from him. "The executive committee is going to meet and see if we have the ability to not seat him," Art Swannack, a Whitman County Republican Committee member, told Washington’s The Inlander.

Obamacare had been passed in 2010. It was LAW. Since the Republicans were single-minded in getting it repealed eventually they decided the only way to get rid of it was to hold the government hostage.

So (a) the wall doesn't already exist, unlike Obamacare and (b) it's not like there isn't actual arguments to oppose the wall or support Obamacare. Obamacare ended up being so popular that Republicans couldn't fully get rid of it once they got in in 2016, and the wall is a pointless project that will do nothing to stop where most undocumented migrants come from (airports.)

https://www.cnbc.com/2019/01/08/turkeys-erdogan-shuts-down-white-houses-bolton-on-syria.html

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan issued a blunt put-down Tuesday against White House national security advisor John Bolton over his pledges to ensure Turkish nonaggression against Kurds who fought against the Islamic State in Syria.

“We cannot accept Bolton’s messages given from Israel,” the Turkish president said, adding that Bolton made a “serious mistake,” Reuters reported.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-46792329

Turkey's president has strongly rejected US calls for his country to protect Kurdish fighters in Syria.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said such statements made by US National Security Adviser John Bolton at the weekend were "unacceptable".

Mr Bolton was in Ankara to seek guarantees that a Kurdish militia battling the Islamic State group would be safe after US troops pulled out.

Turkey regards the People's Protection Units (YPG) as a terrorist group.

Turkey has a persistent separatist movement in the eastern regions of their country, many of whom are Kurds. They want the same thing the Iraqi and Syrian Kurds want - a nation of their own, Kurdistan.

The chaos created by the upheval of the last fifteen years has given them the best chance they've ever had at getting this, so they've gotten really bullheaded about it, which has angered Turkey further. They're really not into the idea of a bordering nation captained by who they percieve to be terrorists.

They've got reason to be angry - Turkish Kurds have not been peaceful in their assertions.

Of course, much like Israel, having legitimate grievance does not justify literally any response.

Not Islamic, all about the democracy, not so much into murdering dissidents. Or being murdered.

As you can see, they are natural enemies

Those poor people. I wish them luck but wished they had gone to Armenia instead of Lebanon. Peace in Lebanon won't last.
