Well, although can't find that exact quote from Palin I did find a common theam that Trump, Bannon, Gorka, and Palin are "fracturing" Trump's base.

Sounds like a scam is afoot.

Only the MFM can fracture that base if we accept their version of events.

I don't.

JiB,

Yes in the grand scheme of things this is extremely unimportant. But it has bugged me for a long time how the NFL has taken advantage of the patriotism of many fans whom they don't respect at all. Kind of like the fake promises the GOP has made to the right to lifers.

Maybe I'm getting cranky in my older years (I'm sure the student coolie labor from Crewe who called me for a donation is being counseled in a safe space) but I don't have to put up with being lied to any more. I didn't even pay attention to the NFL last weekend for the first time since 1957. Life went on just fine. Whether or not Goodell is too fucking stupid to understand this, that is not good news for him. It's probably something he should pay more attention to than getting into an ill advised Twitter spat with DJT.

Fracture Trumo’s base? What , Sykes and Egg will turn against Trump? The media is way behind on that.

fdcol63,

They killed the Indianapolis Star, the paper where my grandad worked as a pressman for over 50 years. The Pulliam family sold the paper to Ganett, and it has been all downhill. Before Gannett, the paper was right-leaning and upheld traditional values.

That paper got Bob Knight fired, by making him seem like a monster and siding with bow-tie wearing Miles Brand.

Then they went after a local chain bakery over some health violations at their main plant, making it sound like they were overrun with rats. Not only did the bakery go out of business, but the older "Roselyn Ladies" who worked at every store were unemployed. Most over 50.

They stirred up trouble with the local Boy Scouts. They went after the 500 Mile Race.

Every holiday they print counter-holiday stories: Single moms on Father's Day, 2 gay guys raising kids on Mother's Day, what it's like to be a Muslim at Christmas, etc. etc.

I canceled my subscription when they lied about the Supreme Court decision in Bush vs. Gore, right on the front page of the paper, and then LIED TO ME on the phone telling me that the story was written before the complete decision was known. I am not a fool, and I knew when it was announced on television, and I knew when their deadline was.

Constant negativity and attacks on the culture, day after day. The paper has lost subscribers and is a shadow of its former self.

This is just one small part of the left, one paper, in a medium sized Midwestern city.

If President Trump can inject some spine back into American culture, we will be forever indebted to him. I have hope.

I am leaving for the airport shortly. My daughter has been in Salt Lake City all week visiting her best friend from high school.

She was going to take a cab home until she found out the cost. (Airport is 20 miles from us.)

So, since my car is still in the shop I am driving HER car, which is not an SUV but a small sedan. At night. She, fortunately, will drive home.

I will check in when I return.

I don't remember who mentioned it earlier but I would think the dying corpse of Ole Mizzou would be a handy object lesson of the consequences of going full SJW retard. Apparently a few more hits in the head will be needed to get the message across. Love to see Goodell and Silver take their respective leagues down the Mizzou path.

Captain Hate

Yes, mad jack; Mizzou is regarded, even among libs over a certain IQ level, as a complete embarrassment that has dug itself so deep of a hole that easy to moderately difficult extrication is not in the cards.

DebinGA

I doubt the Hungarian Gorka knows diddly squat about Alabama. Anyone who reads Moore's history and thinks he'll faithfully line up right behind Trump, rather than follow his renegade bliss, will be unpleasantly surprised imo.

fdcol63

MM, I hope Trump can do everything you and RG and everyone else not on the ledge believe he can do.

But that requires a majority of Americans to support his actions.

And I worry that the culture has already changed too much. All of these issues wouldn't even be issues if the Left had not already been pretty successful in moving the culture so far to their side.

I have hope, though, that I am wrong.

mad jack

Mizzou used to be the Show Me State. Now it's the Hold My Beer and Watch This State.

Hubby and I just got home from seeing American Assassin. Great action packed movie with a very good cast. Highly recommend it.

Same video I watched, MM.

We will have to disagree to agree. Gorka, IMO, was all in for Trump and the FoxCock wasn't.

All in or all out are the choices again.

Moore will be more supportive of Trump's agenda and less of an obstacle.

If he confounds the dysfunctional Senate would anyone notice?

FWIW, I don't want a mindless politician that lines up behind the POTUS no matter what. Too dangerous.

Trump still needs his feet held to the fire from time to time.

 narciso.

Back in 1999, according to the wiki, Moore was up against another rove backed candidate Harold see, and won, despite heavy funding from the latter

I don't think there is a shortage of people willing to hold his feet to the fire. I am looking for a few dependable allies.

Fdcol63,

I am remembering the USA hockey team win at Lake Pla cid, and how suddenly everyone remembered how much they wanted our country to win. I remember how everything was depressing and anti-patriotic. Seems like things changed overnight. Then we elected Reagan.

fdcol63

And I remember how united we seemed on 9/12/2001, full of righteous anger at radical Muslims who had attacked us, everyone again proud to be Americans in our joint suffering.

That didnt last long. 7 years later, Americans elected a Muslim POTUS, we couldn't even utter the phrase "radical Islam", and he surrounded himself and packed the govt with others who hate the US as much as he does.

Now we have BLM, Antifa, these NFL kneelers, and no one knows what frigging bathroom to use and we dare not use binary gender pronouns in schools.

Yeah, we got Trump. He's great. He's gonna do great things.

But the culture has shifted.

JimNorCal

Culture changes. Culture is what you do every single day aggregated over all our fellow citizens. I believe Trump showed the way: the first step is you NEVER apologize or allow yourself to be beaten down. At least not till they apologize and look sheepish. Don't ask me to denounce Moore. Not till you denounce Hillary and Kerry and Koskinen and Pelosi and Holder and so on.

No more defense. No more unilateral surrenders.

jimmyk

Now we have BLM, Antifa, these NFL kneelers

Worse, seems we have a MLB kneeler now too?

And Chuck Grassley is turning up the heat on the traitorous John McCain: John McCain Is Not Happy With His Republican Colleague Over FBI Letter

McCain appears upset with a letter that Grassley sent to Wray this week asking him to reveal whether the FBI provided any “defensive briefings” or warnings to the Trump campaign about any Russian operatives’ attempts to sneak into the campaign. (RELATED: Chuck Grassley Wants FBI To Say If It Warned Trump Campaign About Russian Infiltration)...

“Senator McCain has high confidence in Special Counsel Mueller and our intelligence agencies, and trusts they will follow all of the facts surrounding Russia’s brazen attack on our election wherever they lead,” Tarallo said.

"The initiative, the first time such a mechanism has been used since the Middle Ages, accuses the Pope of “propagating heresies” and respectfully asks that he teach the truth of the Catholic faith in its integrity."

Great pieces Clarice.

One correction though. It was not Bharara who was added to the Mueller team but Andrew Goldstein, a former staffer and Bharara toady at SDNY.

>>>Special counselor Robert Mueller added a top New York prosecutor to his team investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election who also happened to be an official who worked for fired U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew Goldstein of the Southern District of New York has been selected to join the probe, according to multiple reports late Friday.

why would the English cooperate with an Obama Administration initiative to spy on the Trump campaign?

curious.

Wonder if the good offices of the NSA and CIA were directed for the Brexit vote and GHCQ was returning the favor?

Thanks. Quite sure Baharara was added to the team. I double checked that,rich--there's now I think 13 of them.

this is wapo's who's who of the get trump effort. bharara has made some comments about it and some of his toadies and other lackeys are part of it, but I don't think he is a member of the team.

Thanks, again Rich..you are correct..I misread that. I'll ask the editor to correct.

Clinton: Trump has 'been even worse than I thought he would be'

lol ... and she will never be president. thankfully.

rich

you're welcome.

great pieces. the bit about GCHQ is starting to bother me more and more though when I think about it.

The Obama Administration colluded with a foreign government to spy on members of the opposition and we're all ok with that. What other foreign governments did they collaborate with in their efforts to get Americans.

we need to start slurring the Mueller team as the Stasi Office and putting the umlaut in his name (Müller) ... the Müller Stasi Office

rich

and I come back to what sort of bumblefuck campaign did Clinton run that she could outspend Trump 2-to-1 and have the offices of the FBI, CIA, and NSA at her disposal ... and still couldn't win.

lost Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin-states dems have won in presidential elections consistently since 88. starting to wonder if some in the Trump Campaign knew, or had at least a good idea, of the scale of the surveillance and basically fed garbage information to the Clinton campaign.

(Maybe a call from a Trump pollster to Manafort exclaiming ... good grief, looking at these numbers I'm not surprised she isn't 50 points ahead in the national polls)

rich

ooops, need more coffee ... surprised she isn't 50 points ahead.

(or maybe dropped some juicy insider gossip and then when the stories started to appear used that as the key for who was being watched and how. I recall all the confusion surrounding the Trump Campaign efforts in VA and various stories that seemed to have been sourced from insiders, but could have easily been taped conversations)

Captain Hate

and I come back to what sort of bumblefuck campaign did Clinton run that she could outspend Trump 2-to-1 and have the offices of the FBI, CIA, and NSA at her disposal ... and still couldn't win.

That dago witch, Palmieri, probably was in a no win situation being the public face of that train wreck. There's no way a rational human being would green light a television ad ending with a very unpleasant looking scold hectoring viewers that she should be 50 points ahead. Either Slick's brain has turned into mush from oxygen loss from his heart attack or STDs, or he was willing to ok anything quickly to get back with The Energizer; although I've always thought his vaunted intelligence was second only to Zippy's in being grossly overstated.

 narciso.

Morning rich, I think Matt tait was the cutout that ghcq used to spy, under the guise of surveiling flynn

one thinks of that line 'why do people take an instant dislike, it saves time' re red queen.

Interesting how sadden is another firm caught in Mueller's net, how many others

Preet. Clarice the guy was fired by TRUMP, naturalLy Mueller would hire him. Preety Bird made snide comments about Mr Trump the other day.

So the ostensible reason for all this squirrel was a search for the diverted magnitsky cash through prevezon but guess who two of the major Laundromats were renaissance capital who gave bill Clinton 500 k, which hosted a hacker confab and HSBC for whom comedy was credit monitor.

rich

thanks narciso. So do you think this "Steele" character is just a fabrication or that he is real? I'm starting to lean that a single author of the document is a fabrication and that Fusion just put together whatever scraps they could find from the internet.

and how in the world could ghcq get snookered by the Obama Administration? One would think that they would be concerned with their reputation and their long standing relationship with the US ... ie if it were to come out the Obama Administration farmed out a dirty tricks operation to the English, and they participated, they would eventually face some consequences for it.

 narciso.

No he is real, he was burnt by their latest version of Philby tomlinson back in 1999, which makes it very unlikely he was litvinenko's handle. But he was a convenient front for akmetshin. They fired hannigan right after and didn't replace him for 6 weeks

 narciso.

The head of ghcq, not the witch from buffy, its possible they dint see the 30k known islamjsts as a threat as much as the bear, one notion gleaned from let care wannabes like John stock and Charles Cumming, is we are the enemy, act least back in the bad old w days.

Excellent, Clarice. It's like some film noir, with the deep corruption obvious to the audience but seemingly not to the characters in the film. Republicans are not fighting back, with few exceptions, so it's maddening.

Janet 🚬

The Obama administration was sneaking around unmasking, plotting, filling out forms, going to the FISA court, making deals, etc...

...time, money, & effort spent trying to destroy Trump & political opponents

What legitimate crime was being left undone?
Did they have time to monitor Islamic jihadists?

Did Samantha Power take care of legitimate business at the U.N. or did she spend her days filling out unmasking forms?

Janet 🚬

Really, if you think about it...
The Obama administration let unknown foreigners flood into America. Refugees & open borders.
and they used our intel agencies to spy on their political opponents.

Obama launched his national record by getting his opponent's divorce records unsealed. Ostensibly it was the Chicago Tribune doing the dirty work, but presumably at Axelrod's behest. So there's nothing new here, it's who he is.

No, unless you include someone I went to high school with becoming a mobbed up jackass after I lost contact with him. Is dago really that offensive? I'll stop it if it bothers you which it seems like it does. I found Palmieri extremely offensive for going after Kelly Ann's campaign after she oversaw one of the most inept organizations in terms of squandering multiple advantages. If she had any class she'd take her lumps and keep her yap as zipped about her opponents as she has about her terrible candidate. I react very negatively to people like that.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

As a dago I declare my unswerving support for Cap'n slurring any prog wop he happens upon.

Don't we wish every GOP officeholder would sit in front of us, read every word, and then explain why *they are doing zip, zero, nada about it?

Extraneus

I find her offensive, too. In fact, I'm even more offended by offensive Italians than by other offensive people. (Scaramucci was particularly embarrassing, for example, being that we come from similar backgrounds.) Anyway, carry on if you want. Just a little jarring to see when it's so rare that slurs are directed at other ethnic groups.

Clarice Feldman

Thanks.

Heh. Coming from you, Ignazio, it's not offensive at all.

Extraneus

True, they could, but they're not going to do that. They're screwed now. I don't see any other way out than to announce that the anthem has become too divisive & politicized and, as much as we all love our country dearly, really should be discontinued for the good of the league.
