Grannyism: Some people would gripe if you hung them with a silk rope.
Now comes jaded NFL star, Odell Beckham Jr., griping about feeling like a zoo animal.
There’s nothing like watching coddled, multi-millionaire professional athletes sitting around whining about how they are oppressed because of the color of their skin, but New York Giant star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. took it to a whole other level when he compared himself to a zoo animal.

Unless you just returned from a trip to the Himalayas, you know that the Philadelphia Eagles defeated the New England Patriots in Super bowl LII last night. It was the first Super Bowl ever for the Eagles. The city known as “The City of Brotherly Love” once threw snowballs at Santa Claus. After they won the National Conference title two weeks ago the city covered the lamp posts with Crisco, hoping to keep the revelers from climbing them. Didn’t work, so they tried hydraulic oil this weekend. It didn’t make any difference.
There’s such a thing as pride in your favorite sports team. Using it as an excuse to burn and smash just because you want to is another.
Super Bowl 2018: EXPLOSION heard as RIOTING Philadelphia fans clash with police after win
Eagles fans are rioting around the city amid reports left-wing group Antifa has infiltrated celebrations and an explosion has been heard. The scenes follow the team securing a historic victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl 2018.
Despite efforts by the authorities to stop fans climbing street lamps in the build-up to the game by covering them with gear oil, there are multiple reports of injuries and falls.
Estimates provided by a police drone place the number of people on the streets at “around 100,000”, with large numbers gathering in Broad Street in the centre of the city, which has a population of 1.5million.
Fires, mayhem, insane trust falls in Philly after Super Bowl win
“F–k that grease,” the fans chanted as the daredevils climbed. Many of them were seen chugging beers as they got to the top. At one point the fans got so out of control, they pulled down a light pole.
The streets of the city were also filled with Eagles fans chanting “F–k Tom Brady” in reference to the Patriots quarterback — and “Big d–k Nick” in honor of Philly QB Nick Foles.
Eagles players plan on skipping White House visit
I DOUBT THE PRESIDENT CARES
“No, I’m not going to the White House,” Long said on the “Pardon My Take” podcast for Barstool Sports. “Are you kidding me?”
Smith also said he won’t attend, shooting back at Trump’s criticism of players who took a knee during the playing of the national anthem last season as disrespecting the flag.
“They call it the anthem protest,” he said. “We’re not protesting the anthem. It’s a protest during the anthem. I understand why people are mad, or may be offended when someone takes a knee.”
Many people watch the game just for the commercials. At $4.5 million for a 30 second spot they cram in as many as they can. I spent the evening sitting with my wife watching television (thank goodness for cable.) If you want to see any of last night’s commercials, here is a playlist:
Waters Caught Steering $1.2 Billion to Obama Flunkies
According to Judicial Watch, the longtime liberal lawmaker has introduced a bill that moves over a billion dollars to “Obamacare navigators,” who conveniently happen to almost always be leftist organizations.
“A fraud-infested Obamacare ‘outreach’ program will get an astounding $1.2 billion from American taxpayers if legislation introduced by a veteran congresswoman becomes law,” the watchdog group explained.
“The 14-term congresswoman, investigated by the House Ethics Committee for steering federal funds to her husband’s failing Massachusetts bank, crafted the law because the Trump administration slashed Obamacare outreach funding by more than 90%.”
Her proposed bill is officially called the “ACA OUTREACH Act,” and would direct $300 million annually for the next four years from Health and Human Services to “navigators,” who are supposed to help “minority and underserved” people understand the health insurance process.
Jimmy Kimmel: ‘Almost Every Talk Show Host Is Liberal’ Because ‘It Requires a Certain Level of Intelligence’
Jimmy Kimmel made an appearance over the weekend with former Barack Obama speech writer, Jon Favreau, on a panel discussion for Favreau’s podcast “Pod Save America.” As reported by IJR, Favreau’s wife tweeted out that Jimmy Kimmel said, “It just so happens that almost every talk show host is a liberal and that’s because it requires a level of intelligence.”
THIS IS A SAMPLE OF HIS INTELLIGENCE:
‘GUESS WHAT’S IN MY PANTS’
Jimmy Kimmel wrecks car in head-on collision accident
On Thursday, Kimmel crashed his BMW into another car near the Chateau Marmont Hotel in West Hollywood, Calif. The talk show host reportedly made a wrong left turn onto the Sunset Strip despite the “right turn only” sign.
Obama’s Civil Rights Warriors Distraught as DOJ Shutters Project That Funded Open-Borders Groups
The Department of Justice (DOJ) has “quietly” put an end to most work at the Office for Access to Justice (ATJ), one of the lesser initiatives of the Eric Holder era, according to a Thursday New York Times report
In 2014, however, ATJ also provided $1.8 million to left-wing open-borders groups like the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition, the George Soros-funded Equal Justice Works, and the New York Immigration Coalition to provide lawyers for so-called “unaccompanied children” who surged across the southern border that year in their immigration hearings. This week, even the notoriously liberal U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit rejected the idea that the Constitution requires the government to pay for lawyers for these child aliens.
Dem Rep Disbursed $153K to Sister’s Law Firm From Campaign Funds in 2017
THEY’RE THIEVES…EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM
The money Clay paid to the firm accounted for more than 80 percent of committee’s expenditures last year, which has now sent $950,000 to Clay’s sister since 2002.
Clay Jr. began paying family members from his campaign’s coffers almost immediately after entering Congress in 2001. Michelle Clay, his sister, has been the biggest beneficiary of the payments.
Michelle Clay is the owner of the Law Office of Michelle C. Clay LLC, a firm located just outside of Washington, D.C. The law office’s address appears to be a residential home in Silver Spring, Maryland. Little information is available online about the firm, which does not have a website.
VA shoots down feminist request to change its 60-year-old motto, a quote from Abraham Lincoln
The Department of Veteran Affairs shot down a request to make its motto gender-neutral, according to a Friday report.
The Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America demanded the department changed what it called an outdated and sexist motto, reported Stars and Stripes. The VA’s nearly 60-year motto is “to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow, and his orphan,” an excerpt from former President Abraham Lincoln’s second inaugural address
The VA responded to the November request to change its motto by saying the current motto accurately reflects “the heart of our noble mission.” But the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America was none too pleased with the refusal.
“They’re missing the point that women don’t feel comfortable at the VA,” said Allison Jaslow, executive director of the group. “We want to be respected and appreciated as much as male veterans are, and the motto is symbolic of overall challenges.”

It doesn’t matter whether you plan to watch the annual spectacle that happens in a little while. To some it is the finale to the yearly season of large men beating each other up. My wife knows nothing about the game but watches for the commercials, which are the most expensive advertising spots in the medium. This year will be tainted by a bunch of rich black men whining about how stupid standing for our anthem is and how all cops are racists who shoot innocent black men in the back for fun. The NFL has a commissioner named Roger Goodell who just signed a 5 year extension with an annual salary of $50 million and a private plane for life. The owners surrendered to the players’ terrorism and will divert $100 million from legitimate charities and hand it over to grievance clubs like BLM and other socialist causes. It’s turned in to a bunch of crap. This makes it:
‘All I know is murder’
Everything about how far professional football has fallen and how the NFL celebrates the obscene, the vulgar, the dangerous, and the foolish will be on full display as that song blares as the Eagles take the field.
We do not know whether the Eagles will be kneeling prior to the big game as they have during the season. Or whether they will be following the dictates of their union which, after accepting $100 million from the owners, decided that white racism and police brutality were not so bad after all.
Meek Mill will not be there. He’s in the joint. The slammer. All for a violating his parole over and over and over. All for committing crimes over and over and over.
The Eagles don’t think that is fair. Don’t you know that crime is the new black entitlement? The mayor and district attorney of the City of Brotherly Love certainly do: That was their platform during their recent elections.
The Eagles and Meek Mill adopted each other, with the Eagles and other Meek Mill partisans selling eager reporters on one fairy tale after another of police misconduct, judicial corruption, and circumstantial evidence.
BLM Issues Travel Advisory To Minnesota During Super Bowl Weekend
The Minnesota Black Lives Matter chapter released a travel advisory for Super Bowl weekend Thursday, warning black people of extremely dangerous St. Paul police officers.
Precautions are necessary in light of numerous instances of police brutality against black individuals, the group added.
“The St. Paul police department is the deadliest department in the state of Minnesota, killing more people annually than any other department in the state.

Super Bowl Preview With ‘Bad Lip Reading’
President Trump Tells NBC to Go Stick It on their Super Bowl Interview Request
HE OWES THEM NOTHING BUT HIS CONTEMPT
Sources at NBC affirmed that their interview requests have been turned down. But Trump still has an open invitation, should he choose to change his mind, the sources said.
NBC is televising the Super Bowl on Sunday. It is traditionally the highest-rated event of the year by far.
A pre-Super Bowl interview with the president has become an American tradition in the past decade.
When Fox televised the Super Bowl last year, Trump sat down with Fox’s Bill O’Reilly at the White House.
NOW, ON WITH THE DEPRESSING STUFF
Michelle Obama To “Frightened” Americans: “All We Have Is Hope”
“All we have is hope,” the former first lady says in a preview clip from Thursday’s “Ellen” show. Obama’s sit-down with host Ellen DeGeneres marks her first TV interview since leaving the White House last year.
“People are afraid, but then there are people who feel good about the direction of the country, so I mean, that’s what makes this country complicated because it’s made up of so many different people from different backgrounds,” Obama tells DeGeneres, when asked what advice she’d give people who find the world to be a “scary place right now.”
“The thing I learned in the eight years that I was in the White House is that what we do every day in our lives, the good things that we do every day — and we know we do it: we show empathy, we care for each other, you know, we do have a lot in common,” says Obama. “That’s what it means to lead with hope and not fear.”
Michelle Obama is Back on the Job
Surely Barack Obama recognizes how distressing it is for liberals to have to deal with a commander-in-chief who, instead of saying “I” 96 times in a 72-minute speech, in an 80-minute speech, chooses instead to say “We” 129 times. That’s why, every chance he gets to set the record straight, albeit, with finesse, Barack makes sure to disparage the sitting president. Now Mrs. Obama is back, assisting her husband in eloquently casting all things Trump in a less-than-becoming light.
In addition to being part of Ellen’s birthday festivities, Michelle exploited the opportunity as an excuse to address the fragile sensibilities of those gripped with fear over having a man in the White House who puts America first; elevates adoption over abortion; honors law enforcement and the military; worships God, stands for the Pledge of Allegiance; doesn’t have domestic terrorist friends who stomp on the American flag; defeats ISIS; cuts taxes and recognizes that “Americans are DREAMers too.
A year after Obama, Dems still looking for replacement
Over the past year, the flavor of the month has swung wildly, from Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) early in 2017 with her “Nevertheless, she persisted” moment, and later with Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) on the heels of the cultural “Me too” movement.
Democrats expect to field a crowded primary in 2020 with as many as 30 potential candidates vying for the nomination. Democratic strategists say the bench includes heavy hitters like former Vice President Joe Biden, 2016 primary runner-up Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.) in addition to Warren and Gillibrand

THE ONLY SOLUTION TO VOTE FRAUD IS A NATIONAL VOTER I.D., WHICH WILL NEVER HAPPEN.
ALL REPORTS OF VOTE FRAUD HAPPEN ON ELECTION DAY. BY THE TIME THEY’RE REPORTED THE ELECTION’S OVER AND THE DEED IS DONE…NOTHING EVER HAPPENS TO THEM.
Noncitizen immigrants may have cast 544 ballots illegally out of more than 93 million ballots in elections spanning 18 years in Pennsylvania, state election officials said Wednesday.
A Department of State official, Jonathan Marks, told the House State Government Committee that the agency’s analysis covered 35 primary and general elections from 2000 through 2017. The number of possibly illegal ballots comes to one in every 172,000.
REPORT: Hillary Rushed 10 Arrested Russian Spies Back to Moscow in Deal with Putin
For a decade, the FBI ran an operation called Ghost Stories to monitor and rip apart a deep-cover Russian agent network. Ghost Stories tracked a ring Russian spies who lived between Boston and Washington, D.C., under false identities. It was one of the FBI’s most elaborate and successful counterintelligence operations in history.
After the FBI arrested 10 of the spies in June, 2010, Secretary of State Clinton worked feverishly to return the Russian agents to Moscow in a hastily arranged, lopsided deal with Putin.
It all happened as the uranium deal was in play: An arrangement to provide Moscow’s state Rosatom nuclear agency with 20 percent of American uranium capacity, with $145,000,000 to pour into the Clinton Family Foundation and its projects.
Congressional Black Caucus: Trump Should Be Impeached for ‘Legitimizing Bigotry’
“The articles of impeachment put forth by Green don’t allege Trump has committed a crime; instead, they assert that Trump has “brought the high office of president of the United States in contempt, ridicule, disgrace, and disrepute” and “has sown discord among the people of the United States,” the Hill reported.
The articles of impeachment cite Trump’s alleged remarks about “shithole countries,” his comments about the NFL “take a knee” protests during the National Anthem, and his opinion on protesters and counter-protesters over the removal of a Confederate monument in Charlottesville, Virginia last summer.
Democrats spooked? Internal letter says FISA memo ‘provides no credible basis’ for Trump to fire Rod Rosenstein
The controversial memo outlining alleged abuses of secret surveillance by the FBI and Justice Department “provides no credible basis” for President Trump to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, said a top Democratic lawmaker in a letter sent to colleagues on Saturday even as the White House has said there are no plans to make any changes at the DOJ.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee: Terror of the skies since 1995
The Democrat has developed a reputation for making life hell for any clerk, stewardess, or pilot unwilling or unable to make her three-and-a-half-hour flight anything less than glamorous. She takes advantage of federal travel perks to book multiple flights (only to cancel at the last minute and at no charge). She demands an upgrade to premier seats. She expects, in her words, “to be treated like a queen.”
Sometimes it gets ugly. For instance, when one peasant of a flight attendant failed to serve the food Jackson Lee requested, the congresswoman went wild. “Don’t you know who I am?” she reportedly shrieked. “I’m Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee. Where is my seafood meal? I know it was ordered!”
[CtH: I can’t stand it when someone says, “Don’t you know who I am?” ::gagme::]
Rep. Jackson Lee suspects she was accused in United incident because she’s ‘an African American woman’
“Since this was not any fault of mine, the way the individual continued to act appeared to be, upon reflection, because I was an African American woman, seemingly an easy target along with the African American flight attendant who was very, very nice,” she said.
“This saddens me, especially at this time of year given all of the things we have to work on to help people.”
A United Airlines representative told NBC News that Jackson Lee was not given preferential treatment because she is a member of Congress.
[CtH: More likely, she got preferential treatment because she’s a flaming nut job who would make United life hell otherwise. As for being mad about having someone swipe your reservation … puh-leeze! Like it would MATTER what color that person was?! I’m so SICK of Jackson Lee and the rest of her race-baiting cronies in the D party!]

CBO: At Least 4.5M Anchor Babies in U.S.
THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA ARE THE ONLY COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD THAT ALLOW BABIES BORN THERE FULL CITIZENSHIP. THE SOLE REASON IS THAT DEMOCRATS NEED MORE PEOPLE UNDER THEIR CONTROL. THIS MUST STOP.
According to the CBO, there are 4.5 million anchor babies in the U.S. under the age of 18-years-old. This estimate does not include the potentially millions of anchor babies who are older than 18-years-old.
Should President Trump’s administration not enact major reforms to end illegal immigration — including constructing a border wall and ending birthright citizenship — the CBO estimates that at least another 600,000 anchor babies will be born to illegal alien parents in the next 10 years.
Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) once opposed birthright citizenship, saying in 1993 that “no sane country” would reward illegal aliens with U.S. citizenship for their children.
Introduced in House (01/03/2017)
Birthright Citizenship Act of 2017
This bill amends the Immigration and Nationality Act to consider a person born in the United States “subject to the jurisdiction” of the United States for citizenship at birth purposes if the person is born in the United States of parents, one of whom is: (1) a U.S. citizen or national, (2) a lawful permanent resident alien whose residence is in the United States, or (3) an alien performing active service in the U.S. Armed Forces.
This Act shall not be construed to affect the citizenship or nationality status of any person born before the date of its enactment.
White House to remove historic Jackson Magnolia
The Jackson Magnolia that’s been in place behind the White House since the 1800s will be cut down, according to a report.
“The overall architecture and structure of the tree is greatly compromised and the tree is completely dependent on the artificial support,” documents obtained by the cable news outlet read. “Without the extensive cabling system, the tree would have fallen years ago.
The historic tree was planted after Andrew Jackson’s inauguration in 1829. Jackson’s wife, Rachel, died after he was elected in 1828, and according to CNN, the former president wanted to plant a sprout from his wife’s favorite magnolia tree from their farm in Tennessee.
Former first lady Michelle Obama took a seedling from the iconic tree in 2009 and brought it to the Department of Agriculture, where it could grow at the agency’s garden, and former President Barack Obama gifted a seedling from the tree to the people of Cuba in 2016.
Though the tree will be removed, another Jackson Magnolia will reportedly be planted there.
THE REACTION FROM THE LEFT WAS PREDICTABLE
#FakeNews Newsweek Lies About Tree Removal to Smear Melania Trump
Newsweek claimed heartless Melania told the White House grounds crew to cut down a 200 year old tree.
It was a complete lie. The tree was falling over and had to be removed — so they used the story to smear the First Lady.
[CtH: When I clicked on the story, it had been “updated” with the facts. I think by “updated” they meant, “we got caught lying our faces off … again.”]
Rosie O’Donnell tells Paul Ryan he’s going ‘straight to hell’
“paul ryan – don’t talk about Jesus after what u just did to our nation – u will go straight to hell,” O’Donnell wrote Monday. “U screwed up fake altar boy,” O’Donnell added.
She finished her holiday attack with the hashtag: “#JUDASmuch” in a reference to the disciple who betrayed Jesus.
Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro reported an obscene tweet O’Donnell posted about him last week that said “Suck my d___ Ben,” according to Fox News.
Shapiro reported the “harassment” to Twitter to see if the social media giant would take action against a liberal. Twitter initially declined to delete the tweet, but then reversed course.
O’Donnell said she deleted her tweet to Shapiro after Twitter locked her account. She tweeted the notice she received from Twitter that she was in violation of company rules for “abusive behavior.”
LIBERALISM IS A MENTAL DISORDER
Newsweek: ‘How Trump and the Nazis Stole Christmas To Promote White Nationalism’
President Donald Trump wants Americans to think he re-invented Christmas.
But critics counter that Trump is promoting a version of the holidays that excludes members of other religions, and that his crusade to bring back Christmas is part of a larger attempt by the president to define America as a country for white Christians alone.
[CtH: Wait, what? You mean “members of other religions” don’t celebrate the birth of Christ, while black, brown, red, and yellow Christians don’t celebrate Christmas? Who knew?!]
Wishing people “merry Christmas” instead of “happy holidays,” is thus in line with Trump’s decision to ban citizens of Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States, critics say. It fits neatly with his refusal to condemn white supremacists when they march against diversity, and with his condemnation of athletes who protest police brutality against black men.
With this in mind, the fight to end the war on Christmas is exclusionary politics at its most flagrant.
Trump predicts new health care plan will happen after repealing Obamacare mandate
DEMOCRATS HAVE NEVER AND WILL NEVER COOPERATE WITH REPUBLICANS FOR THE SAKE OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE…EVER
“Based on the fact that the very unfair and unpopular Individual Mandate has been terminated as part of our Tax Cut Bill, which essentially Repeals (over time) ObamaCare, the Democrats & Republicans will eventually come together and develop a great new HealthCare plan!” Mr. Trump tweeted.
Republicans tried unsuccessfully to repeal and replace Obamacare over the summer, but they could not come together around a plan.
The Year of Media Freakouts
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews still has chills and thrills up his leg over Obama. He asked rhetorically on Jan. 18: “Is there a husband, a father, that we would wish more as a model for our sons, for our sons-in-law to have and raise our grandchildren? Is there anyone who carries himself better in word, in sentiment, in temperament, in optimism?”
Let’s close with the late-night comedians, who double down on the media’s arrogance. On CBS, Stephen Colbert told the president: “You’re the glutton with the button. You are a regular Gorge Washington. You are the presi-dunce, but you’re turning into a real prick-tator.” He added, “the only thing your mouth is good for” is acting as a holster for Russian President Vladimir Putin’s penis.
That’s how classy 2017 was, because there’s one thing at which liberals feel they excel: unifying the country with civil discourse.
[CtH: Hmmm … husband? Before the White House, Barack did not live with his wife and daughters. In the White House, Michelle had her mother in residence, methinks to act as a buffer in what gives every appearance of being a fairly terrible marriage. Father? Maybe. Personally, I wouldn’t want a malignant narcissist as a father, but that’s just me. Carries himself in word, etc? Repeat my last comment.]

The Obama Years: A Legacy Of Scandal And Deception
Joe Biden’s bizarre disconnect regarding his scandal-ridden former boss.
On December 13, former vice president, Joe Biden, appeared on CBS with the hosts of “This Morning” where he peddled his new book and showered his former boss with praise. During the course of the interview, he was asked about his relationship with Obama and responded with the following;
“I’ve served with eight presidents and I’ve gotten to know four of them very well. I’ve never met any president that has more character, more integrity, and more backbone than this guy does.” Then he went completely off the rails when he absurdly added; “And eight years, not a hint — not a hint — of a scandal.”
What was perhaps even more outrageous than the statement itself was the fact that none of This Morning’s hosts challenged the veracity of that statement and allowed it to pass without a scintilla of scrutiny, exposing yet again an extreme bias existing within elements of the establishment media.
NFL Cancels Final ‘Sunday Night Football’ Game Of Season
The NFL announced Tuesday that the final “Sunday Night Football” game of the season has been canceled, according to CNN. The league had yet to announce who would play during the primetime game next Sunday, but with the chance that none of the matchups would have playoff implications for one or both of the teams, they opted not to schedule the game.
The other problem the league faced was broadcasting a game on New Year’s Eve, which would invite lower number of viewers traditionally on that night. Instead, fans can settle in for seven games at kick-off at 1 p.m. eastern Sunday and a total of 9 games starting at 4:25 p.m. eastern time.
In a season plagued with lower ratings due to the national anthem protests, the league’s decision was not surprising
Not a day goes by without another athlete/politician/actor/window washer/ insurance agent/Wal Mart greeter/two-peckered billy goat is not accused of assault, rape, harassment, static cling, or the heartbreak of psoriasis. I feel a little left out, like the last kid picked when choosing up sides for a ball game. What I need help with is this:
I need some women to come forward and publicly announce I was naughty in the 1970s. It has to be that far back since the Pistol Pete thrill ride shut down many, many years ago. I have high blood pressure, severe emphysema, and a pacemaker, so it would kill me anyway. Doesn’t matter, nobody needs proof, just get a hold of Gloria Allred and have her call a news conference. It would make me feel better knowing I’m one of the cool people, even if it’s no more credible than the accusations against Judge Moore.
Jameis Winston Under NFL Investigation for Allegedly Groping Uber Driver
“He sexually assaulted me, and I have every right to tell the damn truth about it.”
IN CASE YOU DON’T KNOW WHO HE IS:
He was a Heisman Trophy winner while he attended (sort of) Florida State. The school won the national championship that year.
He was also accused of raping a white coed, he stole crab legs from a supermarket, and he stood on a table in the student dining hall screaming racial epithets. The district attorney came under enormous pressure not to prosecute by alumni and fans.
She said he “behaved poorly” right away as he shouted “in part, homophobic slurs at pedestrians.” Winston wanted food so she drove him to Los Betos Mexican Food.
Waiting in line at the drive-thru of Los Betos Mexican Food, “he reached over and he just grabbed my crotch,” Kate said, alleging that Winston held his hand there for three to five seconds and removed it only after she looked up in shock and said, “What’s up with that?”
Winston’s representative Russ Spielman denies the accusations. The team has not returned any media requests for comments.
Kate said she does not want money or fame, but wants the truth out. She found courage after so many women have come forward with their stories about powerful men abusing their position.

The allegations come in the midst of a wave of sexual harassment charges in the political realm.

WaPo Column From ‘Feminist:’ We Must Save Franken Because He’s a Democrat Who Votes the Right Way
I think there’s a case to be made that Franken’s behavior is worthy of scorn, but shouldn’t trigger his ouster from the Senate — especially in the absence of additional credible allegations reflecting a pattern of predatory behavior.
[CtH: But we should TOTES BELIEVE any and all unsubstantiated slurs and anonymous sources that tell tales on Republicans.]
I REMEMBER VIVIDLY WHEN CLINTON WAS FIRST ACCUSED OF GETTING HEAD FROM A YOUNG GIRL. WILLIAM BENNETT WAS ON “THIS WEEK” WITH SOME FEMINAZI WHO SAID THEY WERE STILL SUPPORTING HIM BECAUSE “HE’S WITH US ON SO MANY OTHER ISSUES.”
BENNETT RESPONDED: “WHAT THAT MEANS IS THAT IF YOU’RE GOING TO BE A RAPIST YOU BETTER BE PRO-CHOICE.”
[CtH: Fortunately for the Left, rapists are very much pro-choice. They like nothing better than being able to drag their victims down to the local PP clinic and getting the evidence of their crimes sucked out.]
Flashback: ‘Lion of the Senate’ Ted Kennedy’s Weird Sex Antics Widely Known
One glaring example proves this point. Remember the man hailed by liberals and the mainstream media as the “Lion of the Senate,” Ted Kennedy? His truly bizarre, off the wall, sexual harassment antics were widely known long before he passed away in 2009 yet there was no condemnation of him and, of course, no call for him to leave the Senate.
GQ magazine published an article about the “waitress sandwich” incident involving both Kennedy and fellow senator Chris Dodd in their February 1990 edition which was reprinted on April 14, 2016. It reveals in excruciating detail the extremely humiliating sexual harassment of a waitress, yet no liberal voice was raised against Kennedy (or Dodd) even though the incident was common knowledge.
I HAVEN’T THE WORDS TO CONVEY THE CONTEMPT I HARBOR FOR THIS STINKING PIG. NOT ONLY DID HE LIVE OFF HIS DEAD BROTHERS’ NAME FOR 40 YEARS. HE RUINED THE EDUCATION SYSTEM WHEN BUSH ALLOWED HIM TO WRITE THE BILL. HE BEGAN THE ATTACKS ON CONSERVATIVES WHEN HE ACTED SO SHAMELESSLY DURING THE ROBERT BORK CONFIRMATION HEARINGS. HE DIED WAY TOO LATE TO SUIT ME.
[CtH: It’s really good for my blood pressure that I believe in God’s perfect justice.]
Some really good stuff in the reply section today.

Trump Asks Whether UCLA Basketball Players Will Thank Him For Avoiding Chinese Prison
“The basketball players, by the way — I know a lot of people are asking — I will tell you, when I heard about it two days ago, I had a great conversation with President Xi. What they did was unfortunate. You know, you’re talking about very long prison sentences. They do not play games,” Trump said aboard Air Force One Tuesday. “He was terrific, and they’re working on it right now. And hopefully everything is going to work out. And I know they’re very grateful because they were told exactly what happened.”
When the players landed in Los Angeles International Airport Tuesday night they did not make any comments even when asked if they have a message for President Trump.
[CtH: Best to not hold your breath, Mr. President.]
Jemele Hill Refuses To Give Trump Credit For Freeing Black UCLA Players
ESPN HAS ANNOUNCED THERE WILL BE DEEP CUTS IN THEIR PERSONNEL AT THE END OF THE YEAR. UNFORTUNATELY, I DOUBT THIS VILE RACIST WILL SUFFER THE SAME FATE THAT WHITE CONSERVATIVES DO ON THIS GARBAGE NETWORK.
ESPN’s Jemele Hill didn’t give any credit to President Donald Trump for intervening on behalf of three black UCLA basketball players in Chinese custody.
LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were released Tuesday morning after they’d been arrested for allegedly stealing from a Louis Vuitton store. Trump personally asked Chinese President Xi Jinping to get involved, and less than 24 hours later the players were set free.
Hill didn’t have much to say, which is really surprising because she once claimed Trump was a white supremacist.
Instead of offering any credit at all, she simply responded, “Not really. 1) I’m off today 2) reporting facts isn’t stressful,” to a tweet saying she was in for a stressful day after the players were released.
[CtH: ESPN depends on subscriptions. Liberal pajama people are notoriously repulsed by competitive sports. Do the math.]
Three UCLA players indefinitely suspended after shoplifting incident in China
UCLA coach Steve Alford made the announcement after three players acknowledged during a news conference that they shoplifted during the Nov. 6 incident.
“They will have to earn their way back,’’ Alford said.
“I would like to start off to say sorry for stealing from stores in China,’’ Ball said, reading from a statement. “I didn’t exercise my best judgment, and I’m sorry for that.’’
FROM NOW ON HE’LL STICK TO STEALING FROM L.A. STORES WHERE HE WON’T BE ARRESTED BECAUSE OF WHO HE IS.
Ball and the two other players thanked, among others, President Trump and the U.S. government for helping secure their release. The Chinese government dropped the criminal charge
“These are good young men who have exercised an inexcusable lapse of judgment,’’ Alford said. “Now they have to live with it.’’
Their suspension could range from a game or two to the entire season.
That won’t happen. UCLA is a big school with a national audience. That’s why these kids go there.
The NCAA has a policy called “one and done,” which means they have to waste a year in college, ostensibly to “get an education,” when in reality it’s just a year of being coddled because of their skill at playing a game until they enter the NBA draft where 19 year olds become millionaires overnight. They’ve been scouted by colleges from the 5th grade on. They get passes from all their classes and nearly all of them read at a 5th grade level. As long as they can sign the check it makes little difference.
They thanked Trump because they were told to. Their only regret about the crimes they committed is being caught.
Comments Off on To Show Gratitude One Must First Have a Conscience

There is a man named Lavar Ball you may never have heard of. He was a former basketball player (albeit a poor one) who sired three sons. The oldest, Lonzo, plays for the Lakers. LiAngelo is a freshman at UCLA. I don’t remember the other one’s name and it really doesn’t matter. Daddy Lavar is an attention whore who has always shamelessly pimped out his sons. He demanded (I don’t think he got) a BILLION dollars from Nike to have his three brats wear their shoes. Lonzo’s sneakers came out with an almost $500 and nobody bought them. They were ugly as hell.
Anyway, the UCLA basketball team was in China to play a game. Naturally, these kids are nothing more than thugs with 5th grade educations who play a game. Having no morals and no conscience, LiAngelo and two of his buddies were caught stealing sunglasses from the Louis Vitton store. In L.A., they’d probably never even have been arrested. This ain’t L.A. … this is a whole ‘nother country.
U.S. Basketball Players Like To Bash Trump, But The Ones Arrested In China Need Him
GRANNYISM: BE CAREFUL OF THE TOES YOU STEP ON TODAY… THEY MAY BE CONNECTED TO THE ASS YOU’LL HAVE TO KISS TOMORROW. (SHE REALLY SAID THAT.)
According to ESPN, the trio includes freshman Cody Riley, Jalen Hill, and LiAngelo Ball, the younger brother of Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball. They were released on bail early Wednesday morning, but are required by Hangzhou police to remain at their hotel until the legal process concludes.
If found guilty of “robbing public or private property using force, coercion, or other methods,” the three young men could face between three to 10 years in prison. Lowering the case to an “administration violation” instead of robbery would likely lessen the probability of prison time.
Dan Wetzel of Yahoo Sports reports typically a defendant could wait 30-37 days before being indicted. That means these star American basketball players could be sitting in their Hangzhou luxury hotel long enough for the luxury to wear off. Then, if they do get indicted, the odds aren’t in their favor. According to Wetzel’s reporting, there’s a 99.2 percent conviction rate.
If you’re not familiar with the Ball family, consider them the Kardashian-equivalent to basketball. Instead of a matriarchy spearheaded by Kris Jenner, they’re a patriarch-like business run by father Lavar Ball.
Fellow NBA superstars Steph Curry and Kevin Durant publicly refused an invitation to visit the White House with their championship-winning team. On the heels of that, about a month ago, the most popular face of the NBA, LeBron James, called Trump a “bum” in a tweet.
Well, LeBron, the man you called a bum may be the only hope now for LiAngelo Ball, a potential future NBA player and brother to a current player. Trump is scheduled to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping this week. You could make a case the reason the men were released, an unusual move by generally stringent Chinese law enforcement, as a result of Trump’s visit, in a gesture of goodwill.
UCLA basketball team returns to L.A., with three arrested players still in China

ESPN reported that a person with firsthand knowledge of the investigation said that there was surveillance video of the players shoplifting from three stores inside an upscale shopping center next to the hotel where the team was staying in Hangzhou.
The players are expected to remain in the hotel until their legal situation is resolved.
UCLA coach Steve Alford declined to address the situation after his team’s 63-60 triumph over Georgia Tech at the Baoshan Sports Center in Shanghai and a school representative declined to comment.
THE NICE THING ABOUT BEING OLD IS THAT YOU CAN BE SARCASTIC AND PEOPLE THINK YOU’RE KIDDING.

There are two very simple reasons why professional football has been voted America’s Least Favorite Sport:
- We love our nation, the values for which it stands, and those who protect and defend those values.
- We aren’t stupid.
