Just spoke at a huge rally in Port Jefferson in support of small business owners of a local ice cream shop who love their Pres & country. The far left anti-Trump Mayor is fining them $2,000 PER DAY for this sign. I’d bet if it was an anti-Trump sign it would be a different story! pic.twitter.com/ydQOmAfQ8C

Link goes to a photo of a large pro-Trump sign on a front porch in small-town Iowa.

Gus, I am going to write something for FB tomorrow if I get a break on FB's "Community standards". I think it's a private platform and they can ban what they choose, but they mislead posters there whose contributions make them money--the more readers and posters, the more ad bucks..Vague community standards--and I've lifted what they banned of my posts, are shocking. Stuff from the BBC, the Hill, Fox, etc..Nothing advocating violence or nothing pornographic. Clear indications of extreme bias,

GUS

Oh I get it Clarice, they can do as they choose, Wee Gus Junior said that to me, as I drove down Capitol Drive taking him back to his dorm this afternoon. I pointed out to him, that they can post AND ban whatever they choose. The PRETENSE and misrepresentation is what sickens me.
Unfortunately these FULL COMMIE KIDDIES, believe we are evil and want us silenced.

Narciso

Thats who had zerohedge banned, broderick, from buzzaed feed.

MissMarple2

Eric and Lara Trump and Brad Parscale at the Super Bowl:

GUS

I'm beyond trying to make a case against extreme bias. This WITCH TRIAL, and people like Scarborough and Dawn Le Moan, make it so so so beyond obvious. They have succeeded in getting their filthy paws on America's kids. K-4 thru nearly every University, that the X's and Z's are all in for all things PROG. They CANNOT think, they do not possess LOGIC, nor a moral base.
My BOY, gets it, but accepts it. He doesn't see the use in fighting at campus. I UNDERSTAND THAT.

Another Bob

SF mistake two. Shanahan bad clock management.

Momto2

Thinking of Bloomberg's height (5' 8") reminded me of this:

(hint - Trump is taller than all of them!)

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/us-election-tallest-candidates-trump-height-biden-warren-obama-a9207876.html

GUS

I don't even believe that Bloomberg is 5'8".
Maybe if he borrows DeNiro's lifts.

Dave (in MA)

I have no idea who these people lip-synching are.

Another Bob

Worst Super Bowl Show ever.

matt - deplore me if you must

I refuse to watch singers who use autotune and think total disorientation is entertainment.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

Tin foil ass?

rich

you don't know shakira?

just turn the sound off.

rich

remember when in living color did their super bowl halftime show ...

GUS

I have ZERO or less than ZERO... h/t Elvis Costello, interest in the Half Time show.
My son, wondered why the league would book such CRAP. I told him, that the wa$ a method to their madne$$. He did love the POST MALONE doritos commercial.

GUS

Stephanie, I was the LEAD SINGER/LEAD GUITARIST in TIN FOIL ASS.

Narciso

Thats where she started on, living color, j lo i mean.

Jack is Back!

My wife asked me what it is all about and I told her to make Fox viewers woke before they go to bed out of boredom.

Really. Is this what the NFL think their fan base is looking for at halftime?

Dave (in MA)

Isn't that a Japanese monster?

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

It was the costume change peeking out but I was like WTF?

Dave (in MA)

Lip-synching Latina strippers.

Dave (in MA)

Apparently the older one was Mrs. Slappy McBluelips.

GUS

Seriously, what logical reason would the NFL and Goodell have to make Jennifer Lopez their SUPER BOWL half time STAR????
Who is this supposed to appeal to??

peter

Welll, for a 51 year old woman, JLo can do a pretty good pole dance. Can’t sing worth a lick, but it’s good to know strippers can have some longevity in their careers

GUS

Slappy McBluelips was IRISH.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

It's Miami. Cuban central.

Narciso

Logic and goodell dont compute.

GUS

Peter, Ms Lopez, is reportedly worth $400,000,000.00. She is wealthy beyond belief.

I think she can stop the cheesecake if she wants to.

Narciso

Yes but they are colombian and puerto rican, trust me miamis not that exciting

Narciso

And shakira is a serious tax cheat, hubby was involved with panama papers

GUS

She can't sing worth a "lick". I like that.

Narciso

No thats gojira?

GUS

Shakira???? Doesn't he wear #23 for LIVERPOOL??

This game has NOTHING to do with MIAMI. All the HYPE this week did. This is the biggest single sporting even in the WORLD. Viewership and MONEY WISE. It's all calculated for MAXIMUM PROFIT.
I'd like to know the logic and consulting behind, Jennifer Lopez and this Shakira person.

Jane

My iPad has gone nuts - huge plaid colors across, if I can get it to ask for my passcode it won’t respond, it’s in total meltdown and it’s pretty new, any ideas?

MissMarple2

How can you not love this guy having so much fun ..trolling

Miss M, they will find a way to have the guy arrested.

IT'S WHAT THEY DO.

sbwaters

Jane, I would have been glad to help but we are a day late. :-/

Dave (in MA)

Reminds me of this that was in my dashcam in August as I drove through Cankle Country on my way home.

Jack is Back!

Jane,

Restart it.

Narciso

Yes gerald piquet who happens to be catalan.

Narciso

I have seen a screen go plaid.

Dave (in MA)

One of Howie Carr's sidekicks, who's about twelve.

Grace Curley@G_CURLEY ·
Great halftime show. JLo and Shakira brought their A game.
#SuperBowlLIV

Narciso

Have never. As part of my novella i have researched the jailbreak that spawned aqap, the 23 escapees including the late al rimi

GUS

Dave, where exactly was that video from??? And was it actually you who recorded it.

As I was driving my Boy back to University today, the first 20 or so miles were on I-94 in Waukesha County, just a few miles west of the Milwaukee County line, and heading into Milwaukee County.
I saw a car just ahead of me, with an AMERICAN FLAG very large decal that covered the whole rear window of a small car. As I got closer, I saw a TRUMP bumper sticker. As I got close, I realized that the WINDOW AMERICAN FLAG, was actually a real CLOTH, not nylon AMERICAN FLAG. TRUMP 2020 Bumper sticker, REAL CLOTH OLD GLORY in the rear window, and as I passed, the man driving was BLACK. I wished for a moment that I could meet the Man, and shake his hand.
The FULL COMMIE PARTY, has no idea what they have done to themselves. They will win the SEX CHANGE vote.

Jane

I finally got it to restart and the same thing. I can see the Apple, and the time but the passcode is blocked by the flashing plaid going nuts. I’m clueless.

Dave (in MA)

Gus, it was from Westwood MA, where they went 58.4% Shrillary 35.5% Trump. From my dashcam.

GUS

Jane, turn it off. Then restart.

GUS

Dave, your State is one of the reasons why the ELECTORAL COLLEGE is/was created. In it's current political state, no NATIONAL candidate, no Presidential candidate could possibly win, unless he/she was a FULL COMMIE. NY, is obviously similar and of course some place on the west coast are likewise. Thanks for sharing your recording.
We need to stay vigilant. Scott Walker lost his 3rd term re-election bid, to a completely vapid man of zero substance. The FULL COMMIE, does not want ECONOMIC SUCCESS, it defeats THEIR PURPOSE.

Jane

Come back SBW!

Best Super Bowl half time show ever.
Please clap.

Just trying too hard, jeb

Jane

I did that Gus. Same shit.

I must say I’m pretty shocked at Bill Kristol becoming a Democrat. No matter how mad I might get at Republicans, I cannot imagine it being enough to support what the democrats support. I’d probably just withdraw. Can’t wait to see Kristol crowing about open borders and 9 month abortions,

GUS

Dave, I actually went to JEB BUSH'S twitter dealiewhopper, to see if you were trolling.

THE DUDE IS A PUSSY.

Pander much Jebbie?

WATCH: While thousands of proud Americans stood in-allegiance for the National Anthem, Jay-Z and Beyonce sat in silence.

America has no place for unpatriotic scum like these two.

Kick them and Colin Kaepernick right down to Mexico!#fixit

Other than that, they are on point

The new mrs kristol is uberwoke.

Oh really:

GUS

New Mrs Kristol??? Is she greasy too???

clarice

'The new Mrs. Kristol?" AFAIK he's still married to the same woman. I do recall she worked for some Dem candidate but I can't remember which one.

GUS

Probably RUSS FEINGOLD.

Narciso

I guess she is, shes some classic expert or something, i thought he was in on the skim that chertoff was getting from the russians.

Narciso

Abbas was also at one point a kgb operative as was haddad of the supposed opposite team pflp

MissMarple2

I always knew Kristol was a stealth dem! I predicted he would come out as one on Free Republic back in 2016.

GUS

Unbelievable play. No excuse for San Fran Shitsco to let Hill be THAT open.

Buckeye

I saw Shakira at a club in Bogota last time I was there about 10 years ago.

She was a bit more subdued:)

Narciso


Did they have haklyut do it

GUS

Buckeye, did you see my post about the BUCK I FN license plate I saw a few days ago.

GUS

I said earlier that my DAD was from KC, and in his memory, I'm rooting for KC. I think SF had the game in the bag, and is blowing their opportunity.

Narciso


Its a strange strange world


https://consortiumnews.com/2020/01/29/part-three-of-ukrainegate-inconvenient-facts/

Buckeye

GUS

Yes I did.

Probably only a matter of time before his car gets keyed:)

JM Hanes

I think the White House should tell Bolton that they'll finish up the vetting in #two weeks.

Narciso

Heh jm, its striking how lanny davis chertoff and manafort were all involved im the firtash defense but only the last matters

GUS

Not here Buckeye. Seriously. The educated public is kind and decent here. If you ever went to a Packers game, you'd find that the opponents fans are treated well.

Dave (in MA)

Looks comfy.

GUS

SF had this game in the bag.

rich

dial up a smothered and covered from the menu ...

GUS

And KC is sticking the knife in. REPLAY is always involved on a SCORE.

Dave (in MA)

Remember when UP WITH PEOPLE did this?

Deplorable D

The issue with Facebook banning posters is not that they are a private platform and can therefore do what they want. The problem is that they are playing games with the law. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) contains special "safe harbor" provisions that insulate internet providers from being responsible for content that their users post. These provisions hinge on the host being a "provider," which means that they don't exercise any control over what people post on their platforms. Now, there is another category of platform, which is known as a "publisher." A publisher is someone who exercises control over the content posted on their platform, and, unlike a "provider," they can be held liable for content posted on their sites.

Now comes the hat trick. Platforms like Twitter, Google, Facebook, and others what to be protected by the safe harbor provision, and to get that, they claim they are "providers," or in other words, completely impartial platforms that don't exercise editorial control over the messages posted by their users. However, in actual practice, they function as "posters," because they exert fairly draconian control over what they allow to be posted. This is why anyone who tells you that "Oh, they can do what they want, they are private companies" is either misinformed or a liar. At this point, the argument has been hashed out so many times, that my first impulse is to brand them a liar and assume that they are arguing in bad faith. They cannot do what they want and still benefit from the safe harbor provisions of telecom law. They want to be able to do what they want, but the law doesn't allow them.

I keep hoping that someone, somewhere, can get one of the telecom services hammered on this dichotomy. It would be glorious, because it would open them up to thousands, if not millions of lawsuits for censoring their users.

Deplorable D

Good grief. I read that comment over twice, and it still turned out incoherent.

TL;DR version. Internet platforms come in two kinds, a) providers, which exercise no control over content and are protected by safe harbor, and b) publishers, which do exercise editorial control and are not protected.

The big players like to pretend they are a) and covered by safe harbor, when they actually act like b), so shouldn't be. And that is why they can't just do whatever they want, it has serious legal implications for them.

GUS

Yes Deplorable D. Rodham, Lynch, Comey, Ohr, McCabe, Strzok on and on and on.......

Nothing will be done.

Mayor Pete implying that us 63 million Americans who voted for Trump are racists...

GUS

Congratulations Kansas City. I wish my Dad was still here to see this.

MissMarple2

GUS,

I wish my ex-husband's family was still living, but because he was the youngest by a lot, most of them have passed away, and of course his parents are gone.

They were from St. Joseph, north of Kansas City, home of the Pony Express!

JM Hanes

John Kerry contemplating a run? Nah. He's just in Iowa to shore up Joe Biden on the stump.

I think every Dem who ever wanted to be the president is salivating at the opportunity which appears to be on offer when they look at the jokers on the field.

anonamom

YAY KC!!!

Narciso


Does this make any sense


https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1223615130505748488.html

Narciso

It seems too late to get into the primaries, but had that ever stopped them, maybe he promised the iraniams he would get in at the last minute.

Buckeye

Wow.

KC deserves it.

Narciso


The times was ecstatic in their review about this


https://www.metopera.org/discover/synopses/agrippina/

It is from the same well that graves draws from in tacitus and suetonius, but grimani adaoted it.

The allusions arent subtle

Deplorable D:

It wasn't incoherent at all. In fact, it was one of the clearest explanations of the provider/publisher issue that I've read. Many thanks.

Neo

Philly is happy for Coach Reid

Narciso

Yes it was very good 'they still control the vertical and the horizontsl'

GUS

Miss Marple, my Dad was born in LIBERTY MISSOURI, the very DAY after Pearl Harbor was attacked. He had a hard scrabble life, and he was an AIR FORCE VETERAN. My Mom, a young 24 year old widow with 3 children, met him in SCOTLAND, after my namesake father's death. My DAD, was an AIR FORCE VET, and after serving, he played PROFESSIONAL SOCCER in SCOTLAND. After coming back to the U.S. my Mom and the only Dad, that I ever knew, had 2 more children. MY BELOVED LITTLE BROTHERS. My DAD passed away 6 years ago.
I miss him dearly. He would have enjoyed KANSAS CITY winning tonight.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

Way to go Kansas City Chiefs! What a parade you're going to have! And on clean streets too!

Pelosi still losing...

GUS

JMH. Most of the LIFER CLOWNS, such as Kerry and even Biden to a certain extent, simply and merely want to stay in the GAME. Like a ball player who has achieved and is now retired, yet wants some relevance... Kerry and Biden, are gambling, that their CORRUPTION is never brought to bear.
How is it possible, that adults in the Democrat Party, could ALL BE FUCKING COMPLETELY NUTS???

JM Hanes

Narciso:

Sir David McVicar's production ingeniously reframes the action of this black comedy about the abuse of power to "the present," where it should loudly resonate.

"Loudly resonate?" LOL. Virtually every work produced today seems to have been blatantly cast to reflect badly on the brutally militaristic Trump dictatorship. That stopped being original or ingenious a couple of years ago.
