We were dicking around on Twitter yesterday — it is our job — when Vice President Mike Pence tweeted something stupid.

Oh haha, we had such a riposte at the ready! But within moments of our clever, informed, and most excellent jab, Vice President Pence had deleted his tweet!

We immediately took credit. It was, after all, a bad week for the vice president to be bringing up the many ways in which Mike Flynn had secretly received payments from Turkey (and Russia!) while receiving American national security briefings, since news had JUST BROKEN that The Idiot wanted FBI Director James Comey to stop investigating exactly those things about Flynn, and fired him when he didn’t.

Also, Flynn once plotted to kidnap a Turkish cleric living in the US to hand over to Erdogan for him to murder, so that was bad too.

Shortly after deleting his tweet, Pence’s missive was revised to delete any reference to Turkish President Recep Erdogan and instead emphasized that Turkey is our NATO ally, while also bringing up Andrew Brunson, a Christian minister Turkey has jailed, which was a pretty transparent way to gin up support from our easily ginned Christianist brothers and sisters.

But we soon discovered the credit wasn’t ours, but Erdogan’s bodyguards’, and presumably Pence’s editing was related to the simultaneous beatings Erdogan’s bodyguards were handing out to Kurdish protesters, right in Washington DC, right on Embassy Row, as Pence and Trump dined with the Turkish president.

Oh wait, no, that was Erdogan’s bodyguards attacking a female journalist in Washington DC A YEAR AGO. Here is yesterday.

Here’s a “funny” thing! When we looked up “Turkish bodyguard video” to find you the shitkicking from yesterday, this is what Google served us:

Busy dudes.

Here is a horrible picture from “Kurdish Solidarity” on Twitter.

Andrea Mitchell of NBC says US officials confirm it was Turkish President Erdogan’s bodyguards who were beating the shit out of American protesters on American soil.

So there you have it. Vice President Mike Pence wasn’t cowed by little old us and our funny barb; he just wanted to distance himself from the violent thug President Trump has wholeheartedly welcomed to the White House after Erdogan “won” Turkey’s election just like President Trump “won” ours.

Birds of a feather and all that. We will let you know when President Trump arrests Erdogan’s thugs for attacking Americans. Let us set our alarm right now for never-o’clock.

  • Joe Beese

    The bodyguards almost certainly enjoy diplomatic immunity.

    But of course, far from disapproving, Trump probably asked for pointers.

    • Bad Tom

      No, they don’t. Only the actual diplomats are fully immune; lower officials are functionally immune. Employees and staff are not protected at all.

      Service staff for an embassy or consulate, from the kitchen employees to the valets, have no immunity whatsoever.

      How far does diplomatic immunity go?

    Turkey is an amazing country with amazing people, and Erdogan is a tin-pot dictator who is ruining the amazing dream that was created by Ataturk. If you want a really interesting background that help explains why they are where they are, I highly recommend “Istanbul, Memories and the City” by Orhan Pamuk that gives a fascinating look into the progressiveness of the 60’s and 70’s and the backlash that has pushed Turkey back. Really fascinating.

      Let me guess: The benefits of modern technology and wealth accumulation mostly went to the upper class and the elite, while the working class and poor saw little improvement in their lives.
      It seems to be the same old song that ushers in authoritarians everywhere, including here.

      • Donkey Option

        There’s also the urban versus rural, and a huge backlash to the forced secularism. There was some issue of upper class and elite, but also a sense that Turkey was becoming too Westernized too quickly (kind of like what happened to Russia at various points.) I found the book particularly interesting since it was written by someone who had lived it and has some amazing old photos of Istanbul.

          • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

            eh, i have quibbles with that one. Murder and negligent homicide, at least in texas and based on what i learned in criminal law, are two different things.

            Murder is usually knowingly or intentionally causing a death (i.e. the homicide part).
            Negligent homicide is, obviously negligently causing a death (by driving drunk).

            Then again, I iz not a lawyer.

          • Lulu Mac

            The level of immunity depends on the person’s role and rank within the diplomatic organization. There are about 9 different types of immunity. Some immunity only applies to “official acts” some applies to anything, even murder.

    Four St. Martin real estate agents told The Washington Post that the $28 million price tag far outstrips the amount that sellers are getting for the most exclusive properties on the Caribbean island, where the market is still rebounding from the 2008 banking crisis.

    Sure, this fire sale raises any number of questions, but all of the answers are either “emoluments” or “money-laundering”.

    • WeaselPoo

      I wouldn’t be surprised that the Tax Returns that Trump pretends can’t be released because of “auditing” would provide enough information that a forensic auditor would find that Trump was seriously broke (by his standards ) around 2004, and that every deal he did since then has been to launder money for tidy commissions to maintain his tacky lifestyle. No “pee-hooker tapes” needed really.

      • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

        sadly, one has to think that the tax returns are not per se evidence of a crime, or the IRS woulda done something.

        • WeaselPoo

          Agreed. but I imagine they look at the ostensible accuracy of the records as to what rules are being applied…as compared to noticing that a property worth $20 million was sold for $100 million. If Trump pays taxes on that $100 million, what would they care—-better than getting taxes from $20 million.

        DEFINITIONS
        “(1) The term `documentary material´ means all books, correspondence, memorandums, documents, papers, pamphlets, works of art, models, pictures, photographs, plats, maps, films, and motion pictures, including, but not limited to, audio, audiovisual, or other electronic or mechanical recordations.

Such term—
        “(A) includes any documentary materials relating to the political activities of the President or members of his staff, but only if such activities relate to or have a direct effect upon the carrying out of constitutional, statutory, or other official or ceremonial duties of the President; but
        “(B) does not include any documentary materials that are (i) official records of an agency (as defined in section 552(e) of title 5, United States Code)[1]; (ii) personal records; (iii) stocks of publications and stationery; or (iv) extra copies of documents produced only for convenience of reference, when such copies are clearly so identified.
        “(3) The term `personal records´ means all documentary materials, or any reasonably segregable portion therof,[2] of a purely private or nonpublic character which do not relate to or have an effect upon the carrying out of the constitutional, statutory, or other official or ceremonial duties of the President.

    U.S. SELF-INFLICTED NATIONAL SECURITY CHALLENGES

    Bottom Line Up Front:

    • The ability of the U.S. to address the serious challenges and global threats facing the country has been routinely undercut by the Trump administration’s near-daily episodes of crises and distractions.

    • For the moment, the crises consuming Washington are almost entirely self-inflicted, while real foreign crises await.

    • The current level of congressional partisan paralysis over issues with serious national security implications is unprecedented.

    • When issues with serious repercussions for national security are increasingly viewed as ‘real’ or ‘fake’ based on partisan outlooks, there is little common ground with which to forge collective responses and approaches.

    The reactions to May 16 reports that President Trump asked former FBI Director James Comey to drop the investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn show the extent of the damage by a new and growing form of national security and foreign policy partisanship. The report was the latest in a national security ‘crisis of the day’ environment coming from the White House concerning its connections to Russian interference during the 2016 election. The last week alone has seen a string of quasi-connected mini-crises, from the firing of the FBI director, careless disclosure of highly classified intelligence to Russian officials, and now potential evidence of obstruction of justice in asking the FBI director to drop a case looking into the White House. From a strictly national security point of view, these self-inflicted crises represent a hybrid threat that provides worrisome indications of how the government and the citizens they represent will respond—or simply not respond—to foreign threats.

    The reactions to the latest revelations—now corroborated by almost a dozen media outlets—are only slightly less partisan and dismissive than the reactions just a day before to reports that President Trump might have revealed too much in a meeting with the Russian foreign minister and ambassador that was closed to the U.S. press but documented by a Russian press photographer. The reaction cycle to each new report about problems in the Trump administration is now a fully contained and fact-resistant feedback loop in which the White House and its bloc of congressional allies flatly deny a report, then deny specifics, then say the underlying facts might have happened but for different reasons, then try to divert attention by focusing on whoever leaked information about White House wrongdoing to the press; and then finally that it does not matter since the issue is essentially ‘fake news’. This process has accelerated so that it completes a cycle in a day or so, and now includes the element of the president undercutting all previous denials with an admission that focuses on the leaker and his executive power, boundaries notwithstanding.

    The U.S. is now divided in a way not seen in generations, with serious consequences for national security. The division is so deep that it has altered the equation from how the U.S. should react to an event to arguments over whether that event even happened. The legitimate question of what relationship the U.S. should have with Russia is not the one being debated; rather, the situation has devolved to the point that the question has become one of whether it is even appropriate to investigate Russia’s unprecedented and open interference in a U.S. presidential election. When any controversial issue is viewed either as ‘real’ or ‘fake’ based on an individual’s partisan viewpoint, there is little common ground with which to forge collective responses and approaches. Both the White House and Congress have so far demonstrated that they are not capable of addressing and responding to any of these issues in a non-partisan, objective manner. Such paralysis over challenges that are for the most part entirely self-inflicted does not bode well for how the Trump administration or Congress will handle a true national security emergency. Further, the seemingly never-ending cycle of missteps and drama from the White House has interfered with the government’s ability to even think about—let alone meaningfully address—the plethora of serious global challenges facing the U.S. Thus, the consequences of the Trump administration’s continued dysfunction for broader U.S. national security in a time of gathering global threats could very well be significant.

    Meeting with Erdogan has many benefits; it’s easy to forget that communication is not just a means of relaying information but also a way of engaging with others socially. You can learn so much from the perspective of others, and it literally costs you nothing! We should have boundaries, but In setting boundaries, I find it’s important to know your values, but know your environment, too.

    When you are in the public eye like Donald Trump is, it is really counterproductive to think about how you’re viewed in the eyes of others. You just have to be who you are!

      Turkey hasn’t changed all that much, it’s just more televised. No, seriously. I spent a lot of time in Turkey in the late 90’s. We would fly into Incirlik frequently. Most of the people around that base were outwardly nice, mostly because their entire livelihoods depended on the military members being allowed off base to spend their money. But they were still desperately poor and not really that fond of the U.S.

      I also spent time in Izmir. We were escorted off the base by the Turkish military, and we had to remove the American flag patches from our flight suits because it made us a target for jihadist snipers. We were also told to, “not act like Americans” while we stayed there. The Turkish military also kept a close watch on us for the 3 days we were in town.

    I dunno that we can arrest Erdogan’s bodyguards… but let’s wait and see how soon (NEVER) they become persona non grata, and not allowed back onto US soil ever again….

    • Pierre_de_Fermat

      No arrest, but PNG would be the standard response. Is our State Dept up to it?

      While we’re waiting for Secretary Tillerson, we might think about how other Secretaries of State might have handled it. Dean Acheson, for example.

    Turkish “body guards” in suits attacked peaceful American demonstrators in DC yesterday, and the DC cops and mayor did a lousy job in stopping this.

    This same type of Turkish attack happened a year ago at the Brookings Institution.

    See this article and video at DCIST. It is one of many. Search for:

    “Video: Nine Injured In Violence Outside Turkish Ambassador’s Residence”.

    One Turk is kicking a man on the ground the DC cop does not arrest him but rather just shoves the Turks away.

    That cop needs to be fired.

    • Perkniticky

      He was probably trying to avoid causing an international incident. Which is more than can be said of our president. Imagine, that cop would make a better president than Trump.

    • Serai 1

      Yeah, but it turns out he can’t arrest them. They have immunity.

      • John Norris

        Oh he can be arrested and taken into custody and held until the State Department notifies the police to let him go.

      • Biel_ze_Bubba

        They’re not immune to pepper spray. Or nightsticks.

      Of course. Otherwise, Pence might start thinkin’ some sinful thoughts, and then he’d have to go directly to hell, ’cause Jesus always sees when you’re thinking about other’s tingly bits — especially the dirty, dirty female kind.

  • Saxo the Grammarian

    Beg pardon if this has already been asked, but do these Turkish body guards have diplomatic immunity?

    • sw19wilson

      Apparently, yes, they’re covered.

      • Serai 1

        They really shouldn’t be. They don’t engage in any work that influences the political process other than being goons, which you find anywhere for enough money. I don’t see how letting these fuckers get away with crimes helps anybody.

        • Regret

          A fair point, but a bit hard to implement after they got diplomatic immunity. Maybe a good idea for the next batch of goons?

        • gkshenaut

          It helps us if some of our goons beat up anti-American protesters in some other country. I guess.

    • nosuchuser

      Yes. The best we can do is PNG (persona non grata) them. If you’re travelling under a diplomatic passport and you get PNGed your required to leave the country, but otherwise they can’t touch you. I am unclear what would happen if you refused to leave.

  • jim heffner

    I spent 18 months in Turkey in ’62-’64. I know of one GI that went out of country in a courier bag to avoid the Turkish justice(where’s the sarcasm key?) system. We weren’t allowed behind the wheel because of the risk of getting caught up in a fender bender that had to be more than 50% our fault for being in their country. I still don’t understand why they aren’t being called out for the Armenian genocide. They seem to have a very donald like attitude about responsibility. The Turks are not a very likable people.

    So State Dept. and some others denounced the actions.. No apparent word from Trump, though. The cops are still looking at video to ID more. http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/hurt-arrested-altercation-turkish-embassy-dc-47460260

    • willi0000000

      yeah . . . it takes time to round up all the protesters for arrest.

      • cmd resistor

        At least it sounded like they might be going after the jerks in suits.

  • Scooby

  • ThunderCat

    Reminds me of what happened in Germany in ’67 when the Shah visited Berlin and his secret police, the SAVAK, beat the shit out of German protesters one of whom was my mom who had her hand broken as a result. To this day, she has trouble with grip-strength as well as with chronic pain.

  • Celtic_Gnome

    It’s a good thing those protesters were liberals. If they”d been conservatives, there would have bee lead flying on both sides.

  • Jeff Mc Donald

    Hey! Aren’t our own police supposed to be kicking the shit out of us? If I want a foreign beat down, I should at least get a vacation with it.

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      They’re outsourcing everything these days.

  • Panika MCD

    now if they had been wearing red coats, maybe we would be at war now. think on the bright side: we are not (yet) at war with Turkey!

    Strange feeling to watch American cops apparently shocked by what their Turkish visitors are doing to protesters.
