Finland, which shares a more than 800-mile long border with Russia, joined the NATO alliance on Tuesday, becoming the 31st member country.

The country’s membership was made official during a formal ceremony at NATO headquarters in Brussels on Tuesday.

Ahead of the official ceremony on Tuesday, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said “it will be a good day for Finland’s security, for Nordic security, and for NATO as a whole.”

“By [Finland] become a full-fledged member, we are removing the room for miscalculation in Moscow about NATO’s readiness to protect Finland, and that makes Finland safer and stronger, and all of us safer,” Stoltenberg said.

Stoltenberg also told reporters “there will be no NATO troops in Finland without the consent of Finland.”

Finland applied for NATO membership in May, months after Russia invaded Ukraine. Sweden also applied, though the application process has been delayed because of objections from NATO members Turkey and Hungary.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has decried the expansion of NATO and threatened to take “retaliatory measures” in response to alleged security threats created by Finland’s membership in the military alliance. Russia has said it will strengthen its forces near Finland if the U.S.-led security alliance sends any additional troops or equipment to the country.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said the country “will be forced to take military-technical and other retaliatory measures to counter the threats to our national security arising from Finland’s accession to NATO.” The foreign ministry claimed Finland’s membership marks “a fundamental change in the situation in Northern Europe, which had previously been one of the most stable regions in the world.”

Meanwhile, NoName057 (16), a pro-Russian hacker group, claimed responsibility for a denial-of-service attack against the website for Finland’s Parliament. The group said the attack was retaliation for Finland joining NATO, though its claim has not been independently verified.

Joanne, you live thousands of miles away, so may I respectfully say you are not really equipped  to observe or judge how TDS has infested the Democratic Party since Clinton lost to Trump in 2016. She ran a lackluster campaign, seemingly in poor health at times, but she lost the race when she referred to middle America as “a basket of deplorables.” 

And no one can, or should, forget the lies by Hillary and Ms Rice about Benghazi and the deaths of an American ambassador and other Americans. No one is “ entitled” here, we have no royalty titles for wives of former presidents.

Almost immediately upon Trump taking office, the TDS inflicted began their witch-hunt, spending untold money and time prosecuting (persecuting) the president with endless investigations, trials, and attempts to impeach him. While all these distractions were going on, Covid reared its ugly head and so began lock-downs, changing our world and killing millions of people worldwide. During the early months of 2020, when the President should have been working on his campaign, he  was giving press conferences daily, mobilizing the nation’s response to the pandemic. I recall, Biden was in his basement.

Three vaccines were created within months.

Hm. Wikipedia tells a different history for the term:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trump_derangement_syndrome   Going back to GW Bush. 

Yeah. Every time someone on this board criticized President George W. Bush they'd get told (by a different poster no longer with us) they had Bush Derangement Syndrome. At one point that poster  accused someone having Palin Derangement Syndrome.

The whole TDS thing is just lazy thinking, really. All we've been doing is pointing out that he's a career criminal with mob ties, and hey! You've got TDS. Well, If you elect a career criminal with mob ties, don't be shocked when he does mob stuff and commits crimes. 


Whenever I want to avoid accountability for my actions, I just tell everyone they’re suffering from SDS.

it's pretty rich that you post such a cartoon when the party you support is using the government to try to destroy the Biden family.

totally. The accusations of BDS were thrown around any time anyone had a legitimate criticism of the war in Iraq, or basically any other of W's many **** ups.

I mean, this really sums it up.  


You know what is missing from this conversation? 

Absolutely zero comments supporting the current administration. Nada.

BTW, check out Dr. Jill’s suggestion re inviting the winners — and the losers — to the White House ceremony. “Cause they played so well!”

Another thing missing from this conversation is comments on the new stop sign on Main Street in Mendota, CA.

I guess, in the light of a former President being indicted for illegal hush money payments to a porn star, the stop sign just doesn't seem that important.

OK, discussion.


If you look at the opening posts of this thread, pretty much anything that isn't about the discredited Benghazi conspiracy theory is off topic.  I mean, its not like the moderator (Jamie) changed the topic.


.Bragg won office with his promise of bail reform and revolving door criminal release.

 Speaking of porn stars and liars….

All right. Only one person from the Biden Administration has been arrested and charged at this point, and when he was charged, the Biden Administration fired him.


and Donald Trump's actual skin color:

Your position regarding bail reform would have Trump heading to prison right now to await trial instead of headed in a motorcade to La Guardia to fly back to Florida. So maybe you want to cut some slack to DA Bragg.


Bail reform is a state-level policy, as can be seen in the current discussion in the NY legislature.

No matter what any cartoonist tells you

And you truly believe that campaign rhetoric, designed to win votes, is not exaggerated, altered, or twisted?

As far as perceived racial insensitivity is concerned, how come no one here has a comment re Dr Jill dissing a winning black women’s team invitation to be honored at the White House by coyly suggesting that the all-white women’s losing team should also be invited because the played so well! 

Goodbye to competitive sports in America under woke mentality. A teacher, a First Lady, should reward excellence and achievements of our athletes, not disregard their winning performances. It was an embarrassing slap in the face to these black athletes.


That's such an absurd take it's not even offensive.


You know what was a slap in the face for black people ? Applying to rent an apartment at Wilshire Apartments in the Jamaica Estates neighborhood of Queens…


I think we should go easy on mtierney.   I would imagine today has been REALLY hard for them.
