I will have much less trouble ignoring the NBA than the NFL. I haven't given a carp about 'em for a decade.

Race is the ELEPHANT in the room?

Is he referring to SHAQ or CHARLES BARKLEY?

Stephanie Nene Not your normal Grandma

Just learned that P Bush has a primary opponent: Republican Davey Edwards.

Texans, if you love the Alamo, you know what to do. Go learn about him, like him, and vote for him.

daddy

Looks like all the Dem's are in attendance but no Repubs in the Sessions hearing right now except for Grassley and Jeff Flake.

I can't tell yet if that is a bug or a feature.

JimNorCal

Yes, all the pro sports are suspect.
A bunch of mercenaries brought in to perform. Sure, watch it if you like but don't think it has anything to do with you, your neighbors, your town. It's a business, like McDonalds or something.

Does your civic pride soar if your local MickeyD wins "Franchise of the Year"? Didn't think so.

exdemocrat

"you have advantages that are systemically, culturally, psychologically there"

ok, i'll bite.

what are these, exactly?
am i - a product of a white working class family - privileged over the progeny of an affluent black family?
how can i have had these privileges for 'hundreds of years'?
how does the left plan to correct all this? by removing privilege from me, or by providing the same privilege to all?
or, like its approach to gun control, by disinventing the phenomenon?

Buckeye

None of us gets to pick our parents or our race.

The simple fact that someone is born a particular race doesn't obligate them to do a damn thing.

Miss Marple

I am totally turned off by Roger Goodell. What a wuss of a guy!

Thomas Collins

The statements don't bother me. It's the kneeling that makes me think about giving up on spectator sports (although I won't say I will do that unless I am 100% committed). Popoffovich and Kapersnark et al are welcome to say whatever they want, and I am welcome to ignore it or pay attention to it and conclude that they are idiots. Very few people with great skills in a specific areas, including without limitation actresses, actors, athletes, experimental scientists and game players (such as chess champions), provide any greater insight into politics and ethics than what I hear at the barber shop or the bar (Reagan and Kasparov being two exceptions that come to mind). So let them spout off. It's disrespect for the flag (and in Goodell's case, craven capitulation to such disrespect), that boils my blood.

Captain Hate

Talcum X talking about race is the ultimate disconnect.

Thomas Collins

Gramscianism hasn't overtaken hockey yet, has it? Perhaps I should satisfy my spectator sports hunger with more NHL watching.

Extraneus

My I be the first to say F*ck You, Gregg Popovich?

Captain Hate

Goodell has never worked outside of the NFL, which imo explains his cluelessness on political matters and understanding the fans.

Captain Hate

Condolences to sbw's family.

Stephanie Nene Not your normal Grandma

Goodell didn't punt! He got tackled for 2 points for true patriots everywhere.

He's a fooking idiot.

Buckeye

The biggest barrier to success is an artificially cultivated sense of entitlement.

Lot of that going around these days.

maryrose

Buckeye:
So true!

daddy

So one Dem Senator followed by another Dem Senator due to no Repub Senators being in the room. Way to go guys!

Senator Al Franken now doing an effective job of putting the word "surrogate" into the mouth of Jeff Sessions, re: General Flynn, Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner, etc as "surrogates of the Trump Campaign" in regard to the Russians.

(i.e: Franken: "Was paul Manafort a surrogate of the Trump Campaign?

Sessions: I, e, uh, well uh he was uh..."

That'll play well on NPR.

Now Dem Senator Blumenthal is up. I am so pleased that there were no questions needing asking by any Repub Senators. Their absence speaks volumes.

Dear White People: Be More Like Gregg Popovich
(by)Shaun King

Why is Shaun King writing "Dear White People" as if he is a black man or a person of (some) color?
You know what people say: "Shaun King be so white, he makes . . . " as in:

"Shaun King be so white, he makes polar bears feel black." or
"Shaun King be so white, he makes the cliffs of Dover feel black." or
"Shaun King be so white, he makes Rachel Dolezal feel black." or
"Shaun King be so white, he makes fresh fallen snow feel black."

or fill-in your own ending here:
"Shaun King be so white, he makes ____ feel black."

However, on a (slightly) serious note, I must admit to being taken aback that he writes as well as he did there.
Although I disagree with almost *all* of the conclusions he drew, it was a well-crafted piece of op-ed writing.
It isn't enough to make me think much better of "Talcum X", the noted race baiter that he is. But it surprised me, to be sure.


daddy

Blumenthal: Do you have under consideration any analysis of a potential pardon for any of the following individuals; Jared Kushner, Donald Trump Jr, or Paul Manafort?

Sessions: Uhh, I'm uhh confident, uh I uhh don't think it's appropriate for me to uhh comment at this time, uhh.

Blumenthal: Would you agree with me that even tho he has broad Pardon power, The President does not have power to pardon himself?

Sessions: Uhh. I've not researched that.
-------------------------

One side knows how to go on offense.

QUIZTIME: Will Blumenthal be followed by

A) Another Democrat Senator
B) 2 Democrat Senators
C) 3 Democrat Senators
D) A Republican Senator

maryrose

Daddy:
The kill shot was from Grassley at the get go with his question about Uranium One d al.
I trust Grassley.
He is like a bulldog going after the truth.
He had Huma Abedin's number months ago with her three jobs and conflict of interest.
He will expose them all but I agree that probably only one will take the fall.
Samantha says that she did not do all the unmaskings attributed to her.
Then who did?
I bet Grassley will find who did it in her stead.
He is the one who nailed Holder for his false statement on Fast and Furious.
Called him out when he was under oath.

daddy

D) Senator John Cornyn!

Miracles do happen.

daddy

Thanks Maryrose.

Grassley is the guy I have to watch later on replay. He is the guy John Solomon and Sarah Carter said had to get the ball rolling by asking the proper questions.

I think I will quit sniping and go off and do something useful. I am changing to Snow Tires today.

maryrose

The Dems are scared to death of the pardon power.
Whitehouse brought it up as well.
President Trump is in their heads but he can pardon whoever he wants and they know it.
Their Russia meme is at an end .
Penny ante charges at best which President Trump will dismiss with his pardon power absolute as it is.
Just like Obama's with Manning.
Next Dems?
How to get Hillary to shut up.

Janeprobably about 10 minutes after getting there

What was the uranium one question Maryrose? And what was the answer?

James D.

Looks like all the Dem's are in attendance but no Repubs in the Sessions hearing right now except for Grassley and Jeff Flake.

I am SO sick of these congressional hearings.

McTurtle, Ryan and the GOP committee leaders under them clearly don't have the slightest understanding of how to run and present such events for political advantage - and, much worse, they clearly have no desire to learn.

They also, equally clearly, have no desire to use the powers at their disposal to accomplish anything worthwhile, and certainly not anything that would in any way inconvenience anybody on the other side of the aisle.

Femall.

Buckeye

He is the one who nailed Holder for his false statement on Fast and Furious.
Called him out when he was under oath.

And Holder is paying what penalty???

henry

Jane, Sessions said Rosenstein was in charge of reviewing the Uranium One stuff.

Extraneus

Ask Janet about the excruciating censure he endured, Buckeye.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

henry,

I found that interesting, because Mueller's charge is to look into Russian interference in the election. Uranium One pumping all of that money into the Clinton Foundation certainly would qualify.

I go back to Mueller meeting with Trump the day before he was nominated as Special Counsel. One has to wonder what was discussed, since I don't think he was eing considered for FBI again, no matter what the press inferred. Rosenstein was appointed under Bush 43 I discovered, so was a holdover through the Obama Administration.

All we can do is wait and see. There don't seem to be very many leaks coming from Mueller or from Sessions.

maryrose

Buckeye:
Proof positive that Holder is a big fat liar!
This fact will be helpful as the Uranium One information becomes public.

maryrose

Hillary is also a congenital liar as is Loretta Lynch.
Their credibility is zero so I'll gotten gains by Clinton Foundation and cover- up of the spying and bad faith agreements not to discuss what occurred will blowback on them all big time.
Their defense statements will be ridiculed and dismissed as the ravings of known liars in CYA mode.

daddy on iPhone

So the fox continues to guard the hen house?

Odd that Resenstein doesn’t think he should recuse himself

Buckeye

I agree that it helped establish Holder as a big fat liar, but for most of us that was never in doubt:)

But unless he got dead, thrown in the clink, or had his toys taken away, as far as I am concerned, he didn't suffer any meaningful consequence.

henry

Daddy, Or that Rosenstein would think his co-conspirator on Uranium One should lead the investigation of Russian influence with Trump.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Unless these 2 did their best to mitigate what the Clintons were doing and kept notes and are the best people to know who did what.

maryrose

Buckeye:
Yet.
He hasn't suffered yet.

Buckeye

Unless these 2 did their best to mitigate what the Clintons were doing and kept notes and are the best people to know who did what.

Roger that MM, but knowing and spilling your guts are two different things.

GUS

This dog and pony show is all being done under the FALSE PREMISE, that PRESIDENT TRUMP and REPUBLICANS had done SOMETHING CRIMINAL.

That is the LENS that all of this is being VIEWED thru in D.C. and NY.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Buckeye,

I just don't know. I don't pretend that I do. I don't know Sessions' thinking, don't know what the President is doing, nor do I know how much evidence they have beyond what was in that article in The Hill yesterday.

The President doesn't telegraph his moves. He has frequently told us that. I choose to believe that he knows what he's doing. Others may think he is duped by Sessions, or that Mueller and Rosenstein are running some sort of cabal to unseat him.

I don't think so, but then, my opinion isn't better than anyone else's, since none of us really know what's going on.

Good afternoon! Howie Carr is gobsmacked that uranium-gate is receiving no media coverage.
Howie is trying to get Victoria Toensing on his show to discuss her client with the NDA.

daddy on iPad

From Clarice!s Am Thinker link:

Former United Nations ambassador Samantha Power is denying, emphatically, to Congress, that she ever requested 260 unmaskings of Americans caught up in intelligence surveillance dragnets during President Obama's last year in office. She says someone else did it.

My guess it was probably Sandy Burger who did it. He’s kind of sloppy and disorganized and all but surely there was no malice or malicious intent and he just sort of you know inadvertently wrote down Samanatha’s name and all and what the hell he’s dead anyway, so move along because did you hear what Trump said to that dead soldiers momma?

daddy on iPad

Hell, why don’t they just appoint Bill and Hillary Clinton to do the Uranium Russian Collusion Investigation and cut out the middle men.

Marlene

daddy,speaking of what Trump supposedly said to the solider's mother,Howie Carr said Congresswoman Fredrica Wilson makes Maxine Waters sound like Margaret Thatcher. Ha.

BTW,

I just had to update to IOS 11 on the iPad per c9mpany direction and I hate, hate, hate it. Why do they constantly have to f*** with stuff that works fine and add so much irritating crap?

Why don’t the Repubs at least ask that question if they’re not going to ask about Uranium-Gate?

Captain Hate

He's kind of dead.

Michael,
I have the recipe for LI Iced Tea posted on the inside of the door of the liquor cabinet at the lake, so I see it with great regularity, as I've been meaning to have one for about thirty years.

I have yet to feel the urge to mix four different kinds of liquor and then add Coke to it though. We have it all there--just ain't feeling it.

Now that I think about it, I haven't had to add pop to my booze in over four decades. Last time I did that was when I was 15 --"Seven and Seven." I guess having the legal age be 18 back in the day let me start killing taste buds at an early age. ;-)

daddy on iPad

Sessions you better recuse yourself from the Russia Collusion Investigation because you attended a dinner Party with 40people and the Russian Emissary sat 12 seats down from you and you shook his hand as he exited.

Sessions: OK, I recuse myself.

Rosenstein you were complicit in the Uranium Russian bribery Investigation for years so you are in charge of investigating the Russian Uranium Bribery investigation that you were complicit in.

Rosenstein: Ok.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

anonamom,

I don't drink sweet drinks. No mixing with doas or fruit juices, except for Bloody Mary's once in a while, and those aren't sweet.

I prefer dry red wines, gin with just a splash of vermouth, and scotch.

My only experience with Long Island Iced Tea is when a younger sister came home drunk as a skunk after drinking it and then was promptly sick as a dog.

Buckeye

Does anyone here have experience with AT & T internet? They are in our neighborhood and are offering free installation and a rate that is almost $30 per month cheaper than our current internet.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Captain Hate,

I saw that tweet this morning but not the comments. I am glad Ace put it all together so that people can see what's going on.

That might be enough to put Gillespie over the top.

All of you should go read Captain Hate's link at 4:07.

Jane (Stand against the Coup)

I find it absolutely incredible, and breathtaking that Mueller hAs not resigned in complete shame and fear of prosecution since the Hillary Uranium collusion has surfaced - (which I think we have known about for a long time).

There is absolutely no way he can be considered honest by anyone after letting that take place. An no one has said a word. WAKE UP!

Cates is wishing real hard there. Sometimes hiring a swamp creature to play with asset forfeitures is just that, and not 5D underwater water balloon fighting. I grew up in MO. I'll believe the 5D crap when I see some results. (Not at risk of seeing 5D crap unless it is directly tied to neutron stars colliding).

Grassely. Swamp critter from Iowa. Efemall.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Captain hate,

Thanks! I have their cellphone service which is fine, but our area has lots of towers and there is never a disruption.

My daughter will have to make the decision, but I wanted personal experience.

I was going to sign up for it at my old house because of the deal they offered then (a couple of years ago) but then they discovered the wires available wouldn't handle it so they couldn't install until they required the neighborhood. By the time they got close to my house, we were moving.

matt, deplore me if you must

I think the NLF has well and truly screwed themselves now. The utterly incoherent policy is simply going to fan the flames of the controversy as the players take knees or lock arms or do the hokey pokey to protest law enforcement's racist policies towards poor African American boys who were just minding their own business.

Steyn subbed for Limbaugh today and I happened to tune in. He made the point that while they are free to protest, manners maketh man.

And unlike the rest of us these goons simply have no manners nor respect for the institutions and traditions of our country.That which binds us.

And now Soros has donated $18 billion to de-stabilize decency and democracy around the world and especially here.

The game plan has been revealed. They are all in and it is no longer about freedom or human rights; it is about a corrupt, fascistic power elite.

Pit black against white; affinity groups against other affinity groups and cash checks all the live long day.

There really does seem to be a deep romance with Stalinism growing ever more present in the Left.

Buckeye

MM

If the AT&T service is DSL through the phone lines, quality of service will be highly dependent upon quality of the copper lines.

In our neighborhood they are buried, old (40+ years) with brittle insulation.

Service according to my neighbors sucks as bad as my Spectrum service which is carried on buried, old cable TV coax that my wife has hit with her gardening shovel dozens of times:)

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Buckeye,

Thanks. I think they are putting in new wires, but will check to make sure.

Momto2

MM - be sure you check on the speed before you sign up. I was roped into their lower rates but after they installed it - I realized it was just a bit faster than the old dial-up. I promptly returned to Xfinity (which I hate) but which has blast speed in my area. (88.35 mbps)

I think I remember you use Netflix and without a fast internet connection, you won't be able to steam it very well.

If you don't know what you have now - you can check it for free - just goggle internet speed test and run it. I often run it a few times to get an accurate average reading.

JimNorCal

GOP Senators to hold EPA nominees on behalf of special interests.

If we lack management at EPA how about reducing the work force to match?

daddy on iPad

Listening to Hannity on Radio. He has on Sarah Carter and has been playing the weak answers from Sessions to good questions by Grassley. Amazing to me that Sessions simply says that Rosenstein is a man of integrity so if Rosenstein wants to recuse himself from the Uranium investigation that he was complicit in that is entirely his call and his prerogative.


So let me ask the question this way. If the Dem senators thought Rosenstein was somebody they had t9 fear instead of s9mebody who was in on the fix, wouldn’t they be screaming to high heaven for him to recuse himself from this investigation? Of course they would. Dems went bananas demanding Sessions recusal for essentially nothing, so why are they now entirely hunky dory with Rosenstein doing an investigation he is entirely complicit in? That is the dog that didn’t bark in this case, and why I disagree with Cates. Ask yourself when do the Dems ever roll over and play honest? never.


Hannity talks about the unnamed FBI informant who I have to assume is Victoria Toensings client. Hannity says the guy went to the White House and gave multiple briefings to the Obama White House on the Russian Bribery scheme so the White House knew. Hannity says the guy wants to talk but he needs the current Admin to negate his Non-Disclosure Agreement in order for him to talk. Hannity said th guy wanted to testify today to the C9ngress and that he wants to come talk on Hannity’s Show tonight but he needs the NDA rescinded.

Greg Jarret of FOX News was Hanjity’s guest also and said emphatically that Sessions needs to get off his duff and do something. He is on OL’s ledge.

AT&T is installing fiber optic cable which will be very fast. It is not yet in all areas. Yet they have sales people out selling plans door-to-door without telling people the fast fiber cable is not yet working.

Geebus: Rosenstein and Mueller also sat on the CFIUS committee that approved the sale of 20% of US uranium reserves to Russia despite knowing Russia had bribed the Clintons for the illicit sale.

That’s from Clarice’s 04:46 link.

As I recall, it was a unanimous decision to approve the Sale.

Thomas Collins

I don't think President Trump intended to use Rosenstein and Mueller as a diversion. I think Mueller's investigation is a bitter pill Trump had to swallow. However, if Mueller's investigation did serve as a useful diversion in fact, fine with me.

I wonder whether a no indict anyone deal will include Manfort and Flynn.

Buckeye

U-Verse description, bolding mine:

U-Verse subscribers are USUALLY served their services via VDSL2+, or; Very-high-bit-rate digital subscriber line 2 (VDSL2). It is an access technology that exploits the existing infrastructure of copper wires that were originally deployed for traditional telephone service as a way of delivering very high speed internet access. The main high-speed link (e.g. a fibre optic connection) terminates at a hub near the customers' location. The existing copper wire infrastructure is then used to carry the high speed connection for the short remaining distance to the customers. It can be deployed from central offices, from fiber-optic connected cabinets located near the customer premises, or within buildings. It has been defined in standard ITU-T G.993.2 finalized in 2005.
Internet is provided to computers connected to the on-premises Ethernet cabling or wi-fi from the included residential gateway or DSL modem.

The last 1000' in my neighborhood is the issue.

I signed up with ATT in June. First they tried to install it in my dad's house next door and had to come back 10 days later. My phone is now in his name, so they screwed that up too.

The other guest on the Hannity Video at Clarice’s link says ther were a total of 9 ShareHolders total of Uranium 1 and each and every one decided to donate to the Bill and Hillary Foundation to the tune apparently of about $140 million, and many of those donations were not revealed. The guest, Peter Schweitzer author of Clinton Cash, says most of these donations happened just a few ,oaths before the unanimous CFIUS decision to authorize the Deal.

But Rosenstein is an honorable man, so are they all, honorable men. Look, here is where the honorable Mueller stabbed the Constitution, here is where the honorable McCabe plunged his dagger. Here the honorable Eric Holder stabbed and here the honorable Gates and Paneta and Hillary buried their blades to the hilt in America. So are they all, honorable men.

Clarice Feldman

reminder from a friend:
http://thehill.com/policy/ national-security/355937-fbi- informant-blocked-from- telling-congress-about-russia- nuclear

​The captioned story follows these comments:

​There's another aspect to this that hasn't been pointed out yet. Andrew McCabe was the official at the FBI who was in charge of the investigation described below. Recall that during last summer it was revealed that McCabe's wife, Jill McCabe made an unsuccessful bid for elected office.​ At that time it was learned that most of her campaign funds came from Clintonites. Evil minded people might have thought there was some kind of quid pro quo going on. From Newsweek:

It’s true that for her campaign, Jill McCabe received a total of $675,288 from two entities associated with McAuliffe: a political action committee and the Virginia Democratic Party. The governor did not make the donations directly, as Trump suggested to The New York Times. Other outlets, including The Wall Street Journal, first reported the campaign contributions last October.

It’s also true that McAuliffe is a longtime friend of Hillary and Bill Clinton. He’s been described as “Bill Clinton’s best friend” and reportedly speaks daily with him, sometimes multiple times per day. A 2015 report by the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of the Inspector General said the governor was once on the board of a company led by Anthony Rodham, Hillary Clinton’s brother. But it is perhaps a stretch to say, as Trump has, that receiving money indirectly from McAuliffe is the same as receiving money directly from Hillary Clinton.

Right daddy. Any chess player (of any number of dimension) will tell you giving your opponent control of the Justice department, the FBI, and tossing in a Special Counsel is the opening that never fails.

Right. That's the ticket.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

I need to start dinner.

Not getting into arguments about Sessions or any of it, since my opinion doesn't affect anything one way or the other.

daddy on iPad

Henry,

Since it is on its face undeniable that Rosenstein was involved in the Uranium-1 dealings and the unanimous CFIUS decision, what can explain Sessions willingness to not demand Rosestein recuse himself? If Sessions integrity forced himself to recuse himself for nothing, why would he acquiesce to Rosenstein’s undeniable conflicts? If the honorable thing for a man of integrity is to recuse himself like Sessions did then surely the honorable thing for a man of integrity like Rosenstein is to do the same and if he doesn’t, isn’t the honorable thing for a DOJ boss of integrity like Sessions to do to kick Rosenstein’s ass and make the sunuvabitch recuse himself?

It’s amazing to me how individuals of such integrity and honesty in DC are given Carte Blanche to act so dishonestly and with such a lack of integrity.

Hi joan - I am "weaning" out of my brace. When first removed (on Monday) I experienced severe vertigo which is common. It's funny that holding my head "still" for 10 weeks causes vertigo. So I am taking it off for several hours a day and slowly increasing the time.

I will be starting physical therapy to help with the range of motion of my neck, too. Still waiting to get cleared on my vascular injury as the first available appointment (made in September) was in November! These specialists are busy bees! Thank so much for asking about me - the end is in sight.

Thanks, maryrose! I think the worst part was that I was *so* looking forward to being able to sleep on my side (after 10 weeks on my back) but even in bed, the whole world started to spin around so I had to revert to my back, again.

Don't mean to complain as this, too, shall pass. And I am beyond grateful to be alive and able to move at all after the type of injury I had. Life is a gift and I intend to appreciate every remaining minute the Lord gives me.

The dogs are doing great as well and my daughter and son have taken care of them (and everything else) for the last few months. I currently don't have any rescue dogs - probably will offer to help foster again after the first of the year if all goes well. Some of those 100 lbs. bloodhounds can pull me off my feet and I don't want to fall or be jerked around anytime soon :)
