Prank Robbery? No such thing:

20 year old Nashville youtuber Timothy Wilks was killed after he approached a group of guys with butcher knives as part of a 'prank' robbery for youtube.. shooter said he was unaware of the prank & shot him to defend himself & others. No one has been charged in Wilks' death

I was watching the per-game show and it brought out my paranoia. All about coming together.

I hav e plans to come together, and tha assholes who drove us apart can get bent!

Jane

Sheesh! I have NO plans to come together.

Gus:
It didn’t happen that way and they know it which is why they can’t answer the question.
This election was decided by the cabal in back rooms like in the age of Boss Tweed.
We haven’t progressed much in the area of politics if this sham of an election
is acceptable to the majority of the people that voted.
Manufacturing votes at will and no observers for the counting of the ballots is unconstitutional and cannot be accepted in the next election.
We need real leaders and term limits.
Another seat in the Senate is up for grabs in Alabama as a senator will not run for re-election. I nominate Beasts.

Thanks for your best wishes to my daughter, Jane.

Yes, it's hard to lose pets, but the love and joy they bring to our lives is immeasurable.

GUS

Maguire, the whole thing is a scam and opportunity for your new friends to take control of us.

You'll figure it out. Maybe. Fentanyl Floyd died in May. Everything we know about this scam is changing by the moment. Fentanyl Boy was merely an opportunity for looting burning etc.

As the MOSTLY PEACEFUL PEEPS yelled and threw feces, I noticed the AUTO ZONE behind them. I told Mrs Gus, it would gone, burned to the ground that night. It was.
You can keep on pretending not to get it Maguire, you have already discredited yourself. Most here know it.

I really *want* to root for Kansas City, but I find myself just too captivated by the idea of 43-year-old Brady winning one more title on home turf and riding off into the sunset.
====================================
Well, Mr. Newsweek editor, what I REALLY would like is for Brady to win at age 43, look into the camera, and say "This one's for you, President Trump!"

I won’t come together until they openly admit stealing the election and that they made up the Russian/ Hillary collusion case agains President Trump was a big fat lie that they beat like a dead horse to hurt Trump.
They need to be held accountable for their soft coup and some need to spend time in jail. Only after the presidency is taken away from the cheaters and given to the rightful winner Trump, will I talk about unity.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

TAMPA, FL—Scandal is once again rocking the NFL on Super Bowl Sunday after accusations surfaced that Tampa Bay Buccaneer Quarterback Tom Brady has been taking performance-enhancing Metamucil.

"Yeah, I heard that too," said Kansas City Quarterback Patrick Mahomes. "I heard people his age need to take it every day in order to be able to poop like normal young football players like me. I wouldn't be surprised in the least."

Tom Brady has forcefully denied all accusations.

"Shut up guys! I'm not that old, I'm only 43!" said Mr. Brady to a roomful of sports reporters. "43 is not that old! Why would I need to take Metamucil? I had a perfectly good bowel movement just this morning!" After he said this, the entire room burst out in laughter, since Tom Brady had just used the phrase "bowel movement."

In light of the scandal, some others say they feel emboldened to come forward regarding some other Tom Brady wrongdoings. At the time of publishing, several others came forward to accuse Brady of illegally deflating the tennis balls on the walker he uses to get from his front door to his mailbox.

Video at the link. Trumka is a complete crook of the worst kind. I remember when he was head of the United Mine Workers and was well-known for his thuggish ways. I knew he got elected by the AFL-CIO through crooked actions and threats.

"orchestrating a mob to pressure Congress is inexcusable,"

"pressure"?

pressure?

pressure?

No, idiot, "pressure" is precisely what the Constitution envisions.

First Amendment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

What sort of Cracker Jack box did his law degree come from?

The Constitution uses the word "grievance" because the Founding Fathers took it as a given that in a robust republic the citizens would sometimes disagree, and that they would engage in arguments -- speech -- to work through those disputes.

What's inexcusable is that current and former high officials who took an oath to defend the Constitution are instead obliterating the free speech rights of half of the country.

Great to know that advertisers are bowing out of the Super Bowlhttps://www.breitbart.com/sports/2021/01/24/several-super-bowl-advertisers-bow-out-over-fear-offending-viewers/. Of course everyone remembers the Apple 1984 commercial but we had the Halftime or America fiasco in2012 during the Obama era in 2012 and now we have the image of Joe Biden nearing the final gun for America. I write this knowing that Clarice' excellent pieces back in 2008 and 2011 on Lena Reifenstahl are being suppressed by google algorithms. Trumps rallies had lifted the American spirits from that Halftime depression similar to what Hitler did at his rallies. The difference is that America had not lost a war and Trump did not need scapegoats. In addition BLM and Antifa are the left's brownshirts since the left likes to project their tactics as being done by the right.

He's a black rapper/rock singer who is known for some vulgar lyrics. Also, a pole dance routine by some black gal whose name I can't remember.

Perfect time to make yourself a snack, unless you want to know who is sponsoring the half-time show and you want to tell them you are boycotting.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

I didn't and may not read The Longer Telegram, but I do have to say I quit reading the critique of it at The National Interest after I read this paragraph;

There are two fundamental flaws with the document’s analysis of the China side of the equation. The first is that even though Beijing’s strategic intentions and ambitions are extensive and global in scope, the author nonetheless overstates them. China is seeking to maximize its global wealth and power and influence—and the appeal of its governance and development model—relative to those of the United States, and will be ruthless and relentless in this pursuit. But it is not seeking to “destroy liberal values,” “replace democratic capitalism with authoritarian capitalism as the accepted norm in the developing world,” and “become the center of a new global order.” Beijing would settle for peaceful coexistence with democratic capitalism, and for a—as opposed to “the”—leadership role in the world order. This is because Chinese leaders almost certainly calculate that a Sino-centric authoritarian world order is not achievable and that pursuing it would be unsustainable and counterproductive.

When you're wimpier and more forgiving of the CCP than the goofs at The Atlantic Council you ought to round file your paper and start over.
They're effin totalitarian communists, idiot. What occurrence in the last 150 years would make you think any of that is even slightly true?

Narciso

Yes a pretty poor read

There was an oligarch connected Ukrainian active in the Jan 6 rally. Doubt the FBI which is full of nitwits (see the naked man photoshop they presented in an affidavit) against a guy who at best committed a misdemeanor) has noticed it. Jaacov has.

Narciso

Dobrynin, like an azov brigadist saw him in the apelbaum comment section (btw harpers discovered the azov brigade the kind of outfit kolomoisky underwrit)

clarice

As for Trumka..he thinks the future lies in govt employee unions and jiggering federal law to expand unionizing them more easily.He's well-written off the industrial unions, and if it takes longer for the rest of them to figure out what the coal miners learned when he promised them Obama didn't mean it when he said he'd shut down the coal mines, they certainly must be catching on now.

Not watching the game. The NFL is part of the cabal. Aiding and Abetting the cancel culture, until it comes for them.
Am I supposed to believe 30 or so BILLLLIONAIRES, do not recognize what blm is??? Or are we to pretend that the words bLACK Lives Matter is what a COMMUNIST ORGANIZATION is about. Burning and Looting Nikes is not what this country stands for.
The NFL sold out mainstream work a day America for virtue signaling and self protection.
