    [–] Trump's furious Situation Room row with his top general is LEAKED: Chairman of joint chiefs reprimanded him on Syria - so president demanded immediate pull-out TS_SI_TK_NOFORN 5 points ago in worldnews

    This all goes back to Reagan. Made worse by both Bushes.

    Reagan financed and supplied Abdullah Azzam ("Father of Global Jihad"), Bin Laden, and the Mujahideen to fight Ivan [Operation Cyclone]. And lets not forget Reagan giving weapons to Iran to finance his destabilization of two more regions, Central and South America, with the CIA slinging cocaine in Compton [fostering civil unrest domestically in the US] for the Nicaraguan Contras.

    When the soviets left, the US cut off funding and assistance for refugees, predictably making things worse. The US pillaging middle east oil [what Trump wants to do] certainly didn't help things either. The only natural resources these people rely on are fossil fuels and opium. The west took the oil and declared war on drugs, decimating their economy.

    Bin Laden took what he learned from the Mujahideen and formed Al Qaeda, and fought the Western occupation of the middle east. The US stayed for the oil, and the terror attacks began.

    Bush took out Saddam, destabilizing the region and hired Cheney's Halliburton to lose track of millions of dollars worth of equipment, to be seized by ISIS militants too extreme for even Al Qaeda [yes, ISIS was TOO EXTREME for Al Qaeda, the organization responsible for 9/11], to be used against us. The same Halliburton that electrocuted soldiers in showers with death-trap plumbing and electrical work on FOBs, only to be followed up with their incompetence and corruption in the Deepwater Horizon disaster.

    Republicans get us into these messes, and always make things worse. ALWAYS.

    Mujahideen > Taliban > Al Qaeda > ISIS

    I mean, every time a guy ejaculates, he's killing more people than Hitler. In each milliliter of semen there are about 100 million sperm. Each sperm is a precious life that should be saved from being murdered in a tissue, shower drain or fleshlight. #EjaculationIsMurder /sarcasm

    So when somebody gives a blowjob and swallows, they're technically a genocidal cannibal.

    BURR:

    In the public domain is this question of the Steele dossier, a document that has been around, now, for over a year. I’m not sure when the FBI first took possession of it, but the media had it before you had it and we had it.

    At the time of your departure from the FBI, was the FBI able to confirm any criminal allegations contained in the Steele document?

    COMEY:

    Mr. Chairman, I don’t think that’s a question I can answer in an open setting because it goes into the details of the investigation.

    [–] Trump: ‘Maybe They Have to Put a Rating System’ on Movies TS_SI_TK_NOFORN 9 points ago in movies

    I wasn't trying to say otherwise. I was trying to convey that in addition to the exact same movies Hollywood produces, they have films that are significantly more violent and gory, and they don't have mass-shootings that America has.

    Mainstream Hollywood isn't limited to the US. The implied assumption was that they watch the exact same violent movies Americans watch. And the bulk of the differences between American and international versions are products/brands and songs, like Taco Bell/Pizza Hut in Demolition man, not necessarily less gore/violence in international versions.

    [–] Mmmm TS_SI_TK_NOFORN 1 points ago in gaming

    Not that I disagree, but the 1764 shooting at the Enoch Brown school near Greencastle, PA was done by Native Americans, not students.

    The Enoch Brown school massacre was "one of the most notorious incidents" of Pontiac's War. On July 26, 1764, four Delaware (Lenape) American Indians entered a settlers' log schoolhouse in the Province of Pennsylvania in what is now Franklin County, near the present-day city of Greencastle.

    Inside were the schoolmaster, Enoch Brown, and a number of young students. Brown pleaded with the warriors to spare the children; nonetheless he was shot and scalped. The warriors then tomahawked and scalped the children. Brown and nine children were killed. Two scalped children survived their wounds. Four children were taken as prisoners.

    Some more history on it

    But still, valid point. Native Americans didn't have Call of Duty and Xbox One.

    [–] My Xbox One can't recognize my internet and my SIP and Microsoft keep blaming each other. TS_SI_TK_NOFORN 2 points ago in xboxone

    Without more information, I'd say it's your Xbox. I've had similar problems and for me it was my Xbox. Is it correct that your WiFi network is just not visible?

    Have you tried a hard reset of your Xbox? When I was having this issue, occasionally a hard reset would at least temporarily fix it.

    I went through a lot of troubleshooting with mine and reported my details to the Insider program. After a couple updates, I stopped having the problem.

    Fortunately for me though, I have 3 routers (a FIOS router, and two personal dual-band routers running DDWRT), so I was able to go through some thorough troubleshooting.

    • Does your router use Beamforming technology? If so, try enabling/disabling it

    • How far apart are your router and Xbox? Are there any physical obstructions between the router and Xbox? Can you use another device (laptop/phone) to test the signal strength at your Xbox?

    • Do you have any signal interference/congestion from other devices (satellite receivers/cordless phones/police scanners/Bluetooth/Smart Remotes/Smart TVs/Smart keys/locks w/Keyfobs/etc./Smart Appliances)

    • How many devices are on your WiFi network? And are any of them having the same issue?

    • For the other networks your Xbox sees, do you know what standard they're on (A/B/G/N/AC)?

    • Are the other WiFi networks your Xbox is seeing on the same band/standard as your router/access point (A/B/G/N/AC)?

    • Are the other visible networks using the same channel as yours? For this, you can use various wireless site survey software. I use inSSIDer. It used to be free, but I'm not sure if it still is. The free version might have been moved to their archive.

    • Is your router Dual-Band (2.4GHz and 5GHz)? If so, have you tried changing which you are connecting to?

    • How often do you reboot your router? (I suggest once a week. I think most routers let you automate this now)

    • Does your router allow you to choose which technology your router broadcasts (A/B/G/N/AC/etc.)? If so, try selecting a different one.

    • Are you broadcasting you SSID? If not, try enabling SSID broadcast

    • What kind of security are you using (WEP/WPA/WPA2/Personal/Enterprise)? Are you using complex passwords/passphrases (15+ character with upper, lower, special characters and numbers)? FOR TEMPORARY TESTING ONLY: Try disabling all security

    • Are you using MAC Allow/Deny lists (only allowing/denying devices with specific MAC addresses)

    • Does your router have a "Guest Network" feature? If so, try enabling it and connecting to that.

    • Do you have a Windows 10 device with WiFi? If so, you can configure your Windows 10 device as a WiFi HotSpot

    Hopefully that will at least give you a few things to test.

    I really like Travelers. But I have to admit, it's a little hard not thinking of the characters in their Stargate roles, especially with so many of them all together. I mean, they even had Burke, Orner, and Col. Chekov from SG-1 and a few from Atlantis. I'm actually on my 2nd watch through and noticed more I didn't pick up on the first time.

    I got a little nostalgic seeing all the SGU cast again. I was kinda hoping somebody like Netflix would pick up where SGU left off and continue the story line. There was so much they could have done with it.
