    Justice for Jussie!

    He’s been framed by Nigerian Trump supporters and racist Chicago police.

    Shame on Trump for not bringing us together and making this a “TEACHABLE MOMENT.”

    Obama would know how to handle this and unite us all. Jussie could be his gay son.

    Feinstein to the climate change kiddies:

    “I hear what you’re saying,” “But we’re the people who voted you, you’re supposed to listen to us.”

    “How old are you?” Feinstein asks her.

    “I’m 16,” the kid responds.

    “Well, you didn’t vote for me,” Feinstein says.

    Stupid Wes thinks I support New Jersey Senators? Sad.

    I like the New Jersey beaches over the too far away and over-rated NC beaches. Sue me.

    I wonder if Wes is so pro-choice.because his women need the service.

    I thought Wes would be here- Saturday night is probably a long shift for Tink.

    “WASHINGTON — “Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford said “there is no change in the basic campaign” in Syria as the Trump administration has reversed course on a quick troop pullout.”

    Trump is brash and impulsive, but he does listen to reason.

    Tgca – Wes passed on the opportunity to discuss ABORTION!

  11. Tgca says:

    What does Wes know about ABORTION?

  12. Tgca says:

    Sooooo I was up until nearly 4AM watching Super Hero stuff and then reading. I figured I’d sleep in until 9AM on this wet dreary morning. Nuh- uh! It was not meant to be.

    My geriatric canine child whose like110 in dog years (just shy a couple years of 20 years in human years) is panting hard and looking at me lying in bed. This is usually a sign of one of three things

    1. Her bladder is full and she needs to squat and release- FAST
    2. She is having trouble regulating her body temperature – common for older dogs while they’re asleep and they’re comfy warm – to wake up very warm and thirsty and panting up a storm
    3. She’s about to bust with massive diarrhea.

    Clearly, the 2nd item is always a concern – for an older dog to avoid heat stroke so I must help her regulate with meds, water, or providing some cooler environment. Usually after 15 min or so she’s fine.

    The 3rd is the worse from a house keeping viewpoint. We’re talking fire hydrant burst release here so I go into panic mode trying to get her out into the yard ASAP. Trying to get out of bed, rush an elderly child down the stairs, disarm the alarm, and open the sliding doors to the yards within seconds…not an easy feat when you’re stiff as a board and still hobble around on a cane frequently to get up and down.

    Have you ever had a 50+ lb dog bust in the house like that? I can’t imagine anything worse to clean, especially if it gets on the carpet. We are talking like a roll of paper towels – Bounty or Mr. Brawny strength.

    But alas, after 2 trips to the yard this AM, the deed is done and she now seems fine and comfortably napping. WHEW! That was close.

    Now maybe I can try and catch a nap unless of course someone wants to discuss ABORTION.

    Texas judge rules Male-only Military draft unconstitutional now that women are allowed to serve in battle. Time for ladies to sign up for the draft.

    You ladies hear that?

    I always look forward to Sunday mornings so I can read all about the gastro-intestinal details of Tgca’s dog.

    The silver lining is that it’s less disgusting than what Tgca eats for breakfast.

    “is panting hard and looking at me lying in bed. ”

  16. mnw says:

    Hello, Tg

    Your devotion to your senior citizen K-9 is endearing.

    I adopted an 8-yr-old dog about 6 months ago. My time to deal with all that you describe probably isn’t that far away. My last dog made it to 15, but the new one is bigger (40 lbs), & therefore likely to be shorter-lived, I fear.

    Except for Biden, would the Dem voters really want to spend an hour or two having drinks & dinner with any of those freaks?

  17. jason says:

    I told my wife to stop churning butter and go sign up for the draft.

    I hope she and Cash Cow are in the same unit.

  18. jason says:

    No he doesn’t, he has ignored me on tariffs.

  19. jason says:

    I don’t want to be in the Bitter household when his wife is inducted after he was rejected for the military.

    Gayest post of the day but its early.

  23. Tgca says:


    I have a soft spot for the very elderly, whether they be human or canine because they need special care and protection.

    I know when the time comes, I will assist Jadon in his elderly needs too. When he gets the runs I’ll make sure he has extra padded diapers and then check in on him in 6 hours later.

    Adult diaper rash is REAL people!

  24. Wes says:

    That assumes you don’t die of malnutrition before Jason gets that old, Tg. With your diet, I put odds of your early death at 50/50.

  25. Wes says:

    It’s good to see Sununu is tied with Shaheen in the NH Senate race. Republicans need to entice him into running. Even if he lost, Sununu would throw Dems on defense in a seat currently on no one’s radar, thus decreasing their chances of recapturing the Senate.

  26. Tgca says:


    8 years is not old for most dogs unless they’re like a Great Dane. It depends on genetics and how you raised and feed them. What gender and breed is your dog?

    My old gal is an American Stafforshire Terrier mix and is more than twice your dog’s age and she ranges from 50 to a high of 55 lbs. She still gets around pretty well and climbs up and down the stairs, as well, as the occasional gallop across the yard when it’s time to come in for food but her days of sprinting, jumping, and wrestling are gone now.

    She has her senior moments too, where she’ll just stand there and daydream. It’s kinda funny when she’s walking down the hall and just stops and stares at nothing for like 30 seconds. I’m sure many of our 50+ HHR members can relate.

    She’s lost some of her hearing too so to get her attention, I have to clap loudly or do a sharp loud whistle. I’m pretty good at putting my lips together and blowing just the right way to get the desired attention so I find that works better than clapping or raising my voice.

    She would definitely not be responsive to the soft-spoken voices of some of our HHR metrosexuals.

  27. Tgca says:

    Dearest Wes

    My caloric intake is sufficient to maintain my body weight and higher than average muscle mass and to provide enough sustenance to thrive a hectic work schedule and regularly post intelligently on HHR.

    Though today, I admit I went off the reservation…sorry Elizabeth Warren…no offense intended.

    Instead of eating a nutritious breakfast, I ate like a half of can of Pringle’s Sea Salt chips dipping them in Rao’s Alfredo Sauce and 4 Tate’s White Chocolate Macadamia Nut cookies, followed by a few slices of marinated mozzarella cheese. I blame that on my dog because I had to do something while waiting for her to do her business in the yard.

    …and that was after having baked macaroni and cheese with hatch chilis last night, followed by a pint of Graeter’s Black Cherry Chocolate Chip Ice Cream.

    So I don’t think I’ll be starving anytime too soon…and thank God I’m not lactose intolerant.

  28. jason says:

    “He has her senior moments too, where she’ll just stand there and daydream”

    My cat can stare at the wall for hours. I am sure he is plotting new strategies on how to ignore me until its time to open another can of cat food.

  37. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    This type of warning that can be given in a state which has a very high number of residents who have concealed carry gun permits:

    “Utah State University
    Code Blue: We’ve received reports of an armed aggressor on the USU Logan campus. Run, hide, or fight. Police responding. More info to come.”

  38. lisab says:

    the utah state thing was a false alarm

    jussie smollett was just visiting campus

  39. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Everyone picks on Smollett without seeing the social benefit he was trying to achieve:

    This persecution of Jussie Smollett has to stop.
    He offered jobs to two unemployed black actors. That’s more than can be said for most casting directors.”

  40. Tgca says:

    Shame on you LisaB!

    Jussie is innocent.

    He was framed by Nigerian Trump supporters and the Chicago police…and it would not surprise me if there is a Vast MAGA Conspiracy going on in Chicago.

    Justice for Jussie!

    …and even if he did concoct a hoax, a big IF, he would have done it for a good cause: to bring awareness to underpaid AA gay actors.

    Hopefully, Hollywood will embrace this important issue tonight at the Acacemy Awards.


  41. jason says:

    My PA concealed weapon permit is good in Utah. I could get there in 3 weeks by buggy if needed.

  42. jason says:

    Tgca is full of crap.

    Jussie ripped off the poor Nigerians by only paying them $3500. The going unionized rate for fake racist attacks is $7800 plus the $1000 adders for the use of nooses and bleach.

    You should not be supporting black gay privilege.

  43. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    41. LOL

  44. jason says:

    Trump Is the ‘Greatest Threat’ to Democracy Since the Civil War”

    I didn’t even know the Civil War was a fight for Democracy.

    I blame the one room schoolhouse on the altiplano.

  45. jason says:

    The Amish are entitled to reparations too.

    They haven’t been using government services for the last 300 years, so the reparations are going to be huge.

  46. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Hispanic voters could be the key to Trump being re-elected, from a Politico article:

    “Meanwhile, polls suggest Marist might have been onto something—and that Democrats should be worried that Hispanic voters could help reelect Trump and keep the Senate in Republican control. If so, it would be a cosmic twist of fate: A party that has staked its future on a belief that America’s demographic picture is changing decidedly in its favor could find itself losing to a man whose politics of fear should be driving precisely those voters into the Democrats’ waiting arms.

    * * *
    If Hillary Clinton had improved her share of the Hispanic vote by just 3 percentage points in Florida (from 62 percent to 65 percent of the Hispanic vote) and Michigan (from 59 percent to 62 percent), she would have won both states and their combined 45 Electoral College votes. That would have been enough to make her president. Slightly bigger swings—let alone the Democrats’ 88 percent-8 percent margin among African-Americans—could have added Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin into the blue column as well.
    Now, here’s the brutal truth for Democrats: If Hispanic Americans are in fact showing surging approval of Trump, he could be on his way to matching or exceeding the 40 percent won by George W. Bush in his 2004. If Trump does 12 percentage points better than his 2016 numbers with the growing Hispanic vote, it pretty much takes Florida, Arizona, Georgia and North Carolina off the table for Democrats, who would need to sweep Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin to reach the 270 electoral college votes needed to win the White House. At the same time, that 12-point shift would give Trump a clear shot at winning Colorado and Nevada, states where Hispanic voters make up well over 10 percent of the electorate and where Clinton won by 5 percentage points or less in 2016.

  47. jason says:

    That would be great.

    Not sure why Hispanics would be surging for Trump, although in the Cuban and Venezuelan communities the socialist bent of the Democrats is probably not selling well.

    I am also not convinced the Puerto Rican community bought the MSM hit job that Trump didn’t help the island, things have been recovering nicely there with a lot of federal help.

  48. jason says:

    Trump can make a good case that he has helped both the AA and Hispanic communities with better job prospects and support for small businesses.

    The problem is that the Hispanic media (Univision, etc.) is like MSNBC and CNN, 99% Trump bashing 24/7

  49. mnw says:


    My dog is a female mixed breed, & 40 lbs or so, as stated. She is half bearded collie & half husky.

    Her previous owner had 3 dogs & had to turn mine into a shelter because of an astronomically expensive bladder condition. However, her vet convinced me she is cured & has no more chance of having that problem again in the future than any other dog.

    I’m sure she misses her K-9 pals, but I think she’s realizing that she won the Powerball lottery when she landed at my house.

  52. mnw says:


    Thx. I would add daily exercise to their list of simple pleasures.

    48. “Not sure why Hispanics would be surging for Trump, although in the Cuban and Venezuelan communities the socialist bent of the Democrats is probably not selling well.”

    Seen the same among Brazilians I know. Brazilians in the U.S. strongly supported of Bolsonaro.

    The California Republican party just elected the first Latina as the new party chair. She defeated two individuals who wanted to take the party further to the right.

  54. Tgca says:

    I know it’s humor but the fact that the Lib folks are sitting through this dribble and laughing makes me realize why I believe Libs will never change and understand middle America. Why any person not of elite means would vote for a lib is incredible to me. You’ll see what I mean after watching the video in this link. If folks said this about the constituency of the Libs, they would be screaming racism.

    Phil, you don’t want to watch self entitled liberal millionaires who live a completely tell you how superior they are?

  60. jason says:

    I watched about an hour of the Oscars. I thought it was less political than most years. It was better without a host.

    Sorry Hollywood for missing your big night, I was cleaning the toilets last night.

    I thought so too, see post 51.

    Not that it would make any difference on sexual assault, but there is that small detail that makes his claim even more ridiculous, his victims are black. And Democrats.

    The black community should call him out for demeaning and trivializing the real victims of lynching. But not holding my breath.

  73. jason says:

    I didn’t get that carried away, I watched Disasters at Sea and a couple reruns of Parts Unknown.

  74. Wobbles says:

    Don’t pay attention to the Rasmussen numbers with Trump at 50%.

    I use the RCP average.

  75. jason says:

    People will do anything not to watch the Oscars.

    We have had watch Mercury. Watch paint dry. Clean toilets. Martini overdose.

    “Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) suggested on Sunday night that people should consider not having children due to climate change because there is a “scientific consensus” that life will be hard for kids.”

  78. jason says:

    Democrats should listen to her and stop reproducing.

    Based on the scientific consensus of course.

  79. dblaikie says:

    Jason, OAC is the gift that keeps on giving to the GOP. Her is her stupid, inane, stupid, yet extremely somehow delicious quote: “Our planet is going to hit disaster if we don’t turn this ship around and so it’s basically like, there’s a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult,” Ocasio-Cortez said while chopping up food in her kitchen during an Instagram live video. “And it does lead, I think, young people to have a legitimate question, you know, ‘Is it okay to still have children?'”

  80. dblaikie says:

    Even DW with his imagination couldn’t think up this kind of stuff concerning OAC!

  81. jason says:

    So if the Mueller report has anything negative about Trump, or that can be interpreted as negative by the MSM, how fast after it is released will Amoral Scumbag post it here:

    a) in a billionth of a nanosecond

    b) at 200 times the speed of light

    c) before it is actually released due to a tear in the space-time continuum

  89. NYCmike says:

    Don’t get jealous, jason.

  90. NYCmike says:

    Just keeping my distance from you, since you keep making those martinis with “dirty” fingernails.

  91. Tgca says:

    I think it’s just downright awful to allow transgender females to compete against non-transgender females. Like it or not, generally trans females have hormonal, skeletal, and muscular advantages that non-trans females do not have in certain sports within their age range. Schools often allow trans females to compete with non-trans females because of state laws outlawing descrimination in school.

    Any trans female that competes against non-trans females knows they have built in advantages so therefore, I find they are very selfish to compete in this manner and excuse away their advantage as just hard work.

    This advantage is equivalent to taking banned substances to get ahead of others or having heavy weight fighters compete against light weight fighters. Even if they are on hormonal therapy, which most are not during their teenage growth phases due to health and development issues, they often still benefit from genetic weight, height, skeletal, and muscular advantages.

    This is political correctness run smock and I hope this goes to the USSC someday. Why should a female athlete potentially lose a sports scholarship to a trans female when if that person competed in their biological gender, they would most likely not have the same advantage in competition. I’m sure the day will come where schools will actively recruit trans-female teams simply to get a competitive advantage.

    This is clearly built-in discrimination against non-trans females.

    It’s sad the non-trans females can’t protest without being labeled bigots. Where is the #MeToo movement on this?

  92. jason says:

    Racist sure fits Spike Lee.

    But I agree with mnw, why give him the attention?

  93. jason says:

    ‘since you keep making those martinis with “dirty” fingernails.”

    More elitist NY discrimination against hard working farmers and llama raisers.

  94. Tgca says:

    I thought farmers drank beer or whiskey? Martinis? Really? Only farmers in Sonoma or Napa have refined tastes I heard.

  95. jason says:

    Hey Tgca, GFY.

    I came from humble beginnings and got my expensive tastes the hard way.

    I earned them.

  96. jason says:

    Sheeple, wes is only an authority on the Confederate constitution.


  98. jason says:

    Of course, the little people are the ones who should sacrifice themselves on the altar of global warming.

    “Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders made so many demands for fossil fuel-guzzling private jets when campaigning for Hillary Clinton in 2016 that his environmental hypocrisy became “a running joke in the office,” according to a former Clinton staffer.”

    So if I convert a male llama into a female llama he/she/it will win all the female llama races?

    Wes is a massage therapist. He would not do anything sexual with a client/patient. While I do not believe it has medical value, it is not prostitution.

    Wes takes your money for no lasting benefit. A masseuse takes your money for a temporary benefit. See the difference?

    I see Bitterlaw actually paid attention when I repeatedly stated the difference between a masseuse and a massage therapist.

    A masseuse is a glorified prostitute. Formerly masseuse was a legitimate industry term till sex workers began using the terminology as a cover for illicit activities.

    A massage therapist (or Licensed Massage and Bodywork Therapist [LMBT]) is a licensed professional who’d attended school and successfully completed the necessary requirements for licensure in therapeutic and relaxation work on soft tissue.

    A masseuse works in a massage parlor—a cover for a brothel trying to obscure the sexual activities of the workers in exchange for money.

    A massage therapist works independently or in a licensed spa and would never be associated with a massage parlors.

    Even if so inclined personally, no ethical therapist would engage in sexual acts with clients or allow a client to sexualize a session. A masseuse would have no such moral or ethical scruples.

  110. Bitterlaw says:

    Just trying to be fair, Wes. I still think it is pretty worthless and know that a Plaintiff is no longer injured if they are only receiving massage therapy.

  111. jason says:

    I haven’t been to any of the Amish Massage Parlors here in the York exurbs so I won’t render an opinion.

    i prefer the old legitimate meaning of the word masseuse …

    or massage therapist as they are known today.

    i really don’t get why a rich guy like kraft would go to a cheap sex worker.

    Dems block ‘born alive’ bill to provide medical care to infants who survive failed abortions

  115. DW says:

  116. lisab says:

    actually abortion is extremely popular among minorities

    so that theory does not hold

    for example, massachusetts is about 70% white, but white women account for 50% of the abortions

    in georgia, which is about 50% white, only 28% of abortions are from white women

  117. lisab says:

    Abortion rates continue to vary widely by race and ethnicity as well. Among the four groups examined in the study, black women had the highest abortion rate in 2014 (27.1 abortions per 1,000 women of reproductive age) and white women had the lowest rate (10 per 1,000).

  118. jason says:

    Well, ok then…

    “A Pennsylvania woman charged in the deaths of five of her relatives, including two of her children and her 9-year-old twin nieces, claimed the victims “wanted to die,” authorities say.”

  119. lisab says:

    this is anecdotal, but i would guess that the number of abortions for contraceptive purposes is much higher among non-white women.

    for white women, i imagine based on only personal knowledge of people i have spoken to, relatively few abortions occur because the woman did not use contraception, and overwhelmingly those that do would be from age 12 to 21 … middle school to college.

  120. lisab says:

    colleges, non-religious ones, pretty much hand out condoms for free and often birth control pills are free too

  121. lisab says:

    interesting statistic, not sure if true

    but the number of mass shooting by race/ethnicity is

    LEAST among hispanics, which i would have thought would be among the highest given gangs

    second lowest is whites, non-hispanic, non-arab

    third is blacks

    then asians! which have a high per capita rate of mass shootings, there are asian gangs

    then arabs, which is higher than all others combined, on a per capita basis

  122. lisab says:

    #125 is on a per capita basis,

    it is likely that mass shootings are mostly by white shooters on a non-per capita basis

    A new Marist poll records a dramatic 17 point swing on attitudes towards abortion. The dems are going to rue the day they didn’t deal with the infanticide wing of their party. Here is the link:

  130. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    129. Add to that Cohen is trying through his testimony against Trump to get a reduced sentence for other illegal activities he was involved with; you have a convicted perjurer who has reason to continue to lie in his own self-interest.

  131. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    131. ““we need to invent technology that’s never even been invented yet.” aoc”

    Actually the Chinese approach works better; claim you invented technology that already exists.

  132. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    133. What the far leftists are doing now is creating a new generation of young conservatives. Its going to be like what happened with youth leading up to the Reagan years.

    “By the numbers: The poll found Americans are now as likely to identify as pro-life (47%) as they are pro-choice (47%). Last month, a similar Marist survey found that Americans were more likely to identify as pro-choice than pro-life 55% to 38%, a 17-point gap.

    The survey also found that 80% of Americans support abortion being limited to the first three months of pregnancy, an increase of 5 percentage points since last month’s Marist poll.
    Between the lines: Marist has been polling Americans’ attitudes on abortion for over a decade, and Carvalho told Axios this is the first time since 2009 that as many or more Americans have identified as pro-life as have identified as pro-choice.

    But what Carvalho said she found most significant was that Democrats, specifically those under the the age of 45, seem to be leading the shift: This month’s poll found 34% of Democrats identify as pro-life vs. 61% pro-choice. Last month, those numbers were 20% and 75%, respectively.
    Among Americans under 45, 47% identify as pro-life vs. 48% pro-choice. In January, those numbers were 28% and 65%, respectively.”

  144. jason says:

    Even though I personally don’t support the emergency declaration I think Rs should have stood unanimously in favor of border security.

    All these 13 Rs are doing are enabling the Democrats, since they know the veto can’t be overridden.

    We know the Dems don’t give a flying f–ck about “separation of powers” and “the Constitution” and all that BS because they never opposed Obama stepping all over the Constitution and governing by executive orders for 8 years.

    “That they’d rather help elect what is likely to be the most extreme Democratic nominee in decades than deal with a successful but “distasteful” Republican shows that their far more interested in Not-Our-Kind-Dear snobbery than in a single damn conservative principle.”

  146. Bitterlaw says:

    A lawyer cannot call a witness they know will lie to testify. They can call a known liar to testify if they either believe the witness will tell the truth OR do not know they will lie.

    Of course, lawyers came up with that.

    Nearly two thirds of registered voters believe that the Democratic Party supports socialism, according to a Harvard CAPS/Harris poll released exclusively to The Hill.

    Sixty-four percent of respondents said that they believe the Democratic Party backs such an economic system, while 36 percent believe the party is opposed to socialism, the poll found.”

    This is both good and bad.

    It shows that voters are not fooled, they know a socialist when they see one.

    But it is bad because if the socialists do win, it means that is really what they want.

    Just in case anybody cares at all about Chicago Mayoral politics:

    The Chicago Mayoral runoff for April 2 is now set after 14 candidates faced off today in a very low-turnout election.

    The late surging Lori Lightfoot, a former federal prosecutor, is leading with 17 percent and Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle, who had considerable party establishment support is running second with 16 percent. Two African-American women will face off for Mayor. Chicago had previously elected a female Mayor in 1979 and an African-American in 1983 and 1987. If she wins, Lightfoot will also be the city’s first openly gay Mayor.

    Bill Daley, has just conceded the race, and is running in third place with 15 percent of the vote. Many had expected him to make the runoff on campaign cash and name recognition alone, but much like Republicans not wanting “another Bush”, voters in Chicago just did not like the idea of “another Daley.” One aspect I find interesting is that there is a scion of an old Democrat family who also ran and received about 8 percent of the vote, basically just doing well in his own home Ward, and his showing almost certainly cost Daley a spot in the runoff. I think Daley could have beaten Preckwinkle but probably not Lightfoot. He was the only candidate who really had negative ads run against him and it focused on the significant money donated to him by a Republican billionaire.

    (If I lived in Chicago, I would have voted for Daley strategically, even though I think Paul Vallas was probably the best person to be Mayor. Most Republicans, to the extend they exist in Chicago, are believed to have voted for Willie Wilson, an African-American millionaire entrepreneur, who despite nominally running for President as a Democrat in 2016, later voted for Donald Trump. He finished fourth tonight.)

    Finishing in fifth place with 9 percent is the ambitious State Comptroller Susana Mendoza. She had at one point been considered one of the co-favorites with Preckwinkle and a possible first Hispanic Mayor.

    So, Chicago voters now have a choice between two candidates that 2/3 of voted against. Both women are considered “progressives” but this is probably going to be an insider vs. outsider battle with Preckwinkle, the one time outsider, now very much the insider, against first time candidate Lightfoot. Preckwinkle is considered heavily tied to the establishment and personally arrogant, so I think Lightfoot has a very good chance of winning as an agent of change. She was one of the small number of candidates who got into the race when it looked like Rahm Emanuel would be seeking a third term. Right now, I would bet on a Lightfoot win.A couple of weeks ago, she was expected to maybe finish 6th or 7th, so this is a pretty remarkable story. I do not know what kind of Mayor she will be, but I mostly want to see Preckwinkle lose.

    And for anyone who might be wondering, longtime Alderman Ed Burke, currently under federal indictment, was reelected tonight outright against two opponents. Associations with him hurt several of the Mayoral candidates, but he is still liked in his home ward apparently.

    NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Andraya Yearwood hears the comments, usually from adults and usually not to her face.

    She shouldn’t be running, they say, not against girls.

    Yearwood, a 17-year-old junior at Cromwell High School, is one of two transgender high school sprinters in Connecticut, transitioning to female.

    She recently finished second in the 55-meter dash at the state open indoor track championships. The winner, Terry Miller of Bloomfield High, is also transgender and set a girls state indoor record of 6.95 seconds. Yearwood finished in 7.01 seconds and the third-place competitor, who is not transgender, finished in 7.23 seconds.

    Yearwood acknowledges she is stronger than many of her cisgender competitors, but says girls who are not transgender may have other advantages.

    “One high jumper could be taller and have longer legs than another, but the other could have perfect form, and then do better,” she said. “One sprinter could have parents who spend so much money on personal training for their child, which in turn, would cause that child to run faster.”

  170. Bitterlaw says:

    I don’t need to be forgiven. I still hate Trump and think he is scum. Still, my vote against Hillary cancelled out a vote for Hillary. Jason not voting gave Hillary a 1 vote advantage. One of us hurt her chances and one helped her. No free lunch, Jason.

He’s played more games for San Antonio in the AHL than for the Bluz this season. He’s living in a not-very-fancy hoteI.

    I thought their 2 best games this season were the Bruins last Saturday & the Preds last night. Those aren’t the proverbial Little Sisters. What are the Hawks up to rebuilding-wise, btw?


    I dunno… if I do, it will be strictly as a favor to you. To make sure I wasn’t crazy, I talked to a couple of OTHER career federal prosecutors. They couldn’t imagine putting him on the stand either. The danger is that a witness that filthy may repulse a jury so much that they ignore your GOOD evidence.

    Saw the woman on the road with a For Sale sign the very next day after the N Y Daily News had a story on The Field Of Dreams, which included a picture in the article of James Earl Jones and Kevin Costner driving in…….YUP, you got it……a Volkswagen Bus.

    Drove it from Brooklyn to San Francisco, 6 weeks and almost 7000 miles across this great land!

    I miss my ol’ VivianWolinsky!

    “The first car I drove in 1985 was my brother’s 1974 Gran Torino station wagon. It was pea green and beat up but it represented freedom.”

    -First car I drove was a 1967 2 door Chrysler Newport.

    It was stolen outside (well, 2 blocks away) of our parish church when we were inside at the mass for my Grandfather’s funeral.

    Older brother came out, ended up having to take a cab to the cemetery because we had all left by the time he realized what happened.

    First car, VW super beetle; don’t even remember the year of the car — something like 1976. I was living in a California beach community at the time. About 25% of the the cars were VWs; you would see whole lines of them along the street. Great car, easy to fix; fun to drive. Drove it through blizzards in western states; handled well in them.

    Last year said I respected and voted for Feinstein. Got some derision for it. But she is a straight shooter. Giving the climate kids a good dose of reality was also impressive. Since her days in San Francisco, she as often been challenged by the far left.

    Place in Utah, called Slickrock, BLM land which is used for mountain biking activities.

    My Volkswagen, when I flattened the tires a little bit, could go places that brand new SUV’s could not.

  212. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    216. Did that too. I used to take the VW on dirt roads and trails. Have a ranger truck now, which pretty much can do the same thing. Plus a place to transport mountain bikes. I once all but lived in Moab; am going to be there next week. Going to Canyonlands NP.

  213. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    The most damaged part of Cohen’s testimony to Trump is the question of why he hired Cohen as his attorney in the first place.

  219. Tina says:

    Well, now Cohen is subject to further criminal referrals.

    He lied 3 times about not seeking a wh position.

    He lobbied without FARA registration.

    The House Rs, unlike their wobbly counterparts in the Senate, ain’t playing.

  220. Tina says:

    Oh, and one more lie:

    Not even Mulehead made that link, nor does Wiki.

    Justice needs to take action on The criminal referrals and void the sentencing deal they gave him.

  225. Messy says:

    225-26. So, Tina, you think Cohen was telling the truth originally? I saw pretty much the whole thing, and not a single Republican defended Trump.

    228-29. No, but it will lead to more hearings.

  226. jason says:

    Anybody who believes anything Cohen says is an idiot or a moonbat, or am I repeating myself.

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee on if she’s watching the Cohen hearing:
    It’s on, but I’m doing other things. I think he has a credibility problem.”

    LOL, what was her first clue?

  228. jason says:

    I think Jordan puts it perfectly, and if this isn’t a defense of Trump, I don’t know what is.

    “On Wednesday, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) slammed House Democrats for inviting President Donald Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen to testify. Cohen has confessed to lying to Congress, making him a particularly unreliable witness. Yet Jordan attacked Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), chair of the House Oversight Committee, saying Cohen is the Democrats’ “patsy” to impeach Trump.

    “Mr. Chairman, here we go. Here we go. Your first big hearing, your first announced witness: Michael Cohen. I want everyone in this room to think about this. The first announced witness for the 116th Congress is a guy who is going to prison in two months for lying to Congress,” Jordan, the Republican ranking member on the committee, said in his opening statement. While the House Oversight Committee has had many hearings already, this is the first hearing to announce a star witness in its title.

    “Mr. Chairman, your chairmanship will always be identified with this hearing. And we all need to understand what this is. This is the Michael Cohen hearing presented by Lanny Davis. That’s right,” Jordan continued. “Lanny Davis choreographed the whole darn thing. The Clintons’ best friend, loyalist, operative, Lanny Davis put this all together. You know how we know? He told our staff.”

    Indeed, Davis “had to talk Michael Cohen into coming and, most importantly, he had to persuade the chairman to have” the hearing, the Republican added, summarizing recent news.

    “This might be the first time someone convicted of lying to Congress has appeared again so quickly in front of Congress,” Jordan remarked. “Certainly, it’s the first time a convicted perjurer has been brought back to be a star witness in a hearing. And there is a reason this is the first because no other committee would do it.”

    Yet the situation is even more perverse. Jordan noted that there are many lawyers on the House Oversight Committee, but in inviting Cohen to testify about Trump, “this committee is actually encouraging a witness to violate attorney-client privilege. Mr. Chairman, when we legitimize dishonesty we delegitimize this institution. We’re supposed to pursue the truth. But you have stacked the deck against the truth.”

    Cummings has also declared certain questions off-limits, but at the beginning of the hearing, he reversed the original ruling that questions about Russia would be off the table. “The only subjects we can talk about are ones you think are going to be harmful to the president of the United States,” Jordan remarked.

    The Republican quoted a U.S. attorney in slamming Cohen, who “enjoyed a privileged life” but whose “desire for ever greater wealth and influence precipitated an extensive course of criminal conduct.”

  229. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    #231- Messy the Moron
    I want to thank “Rat” Cohen for his exculpatory evidence in favor of the President.
    First, the Rat claims that Trump did not want to win the Presidency.If so, then the Russian collusion/ conspiracy narrative is dead. Why would DJT want Russian assistance to win a political race he did not want to win?
    Also, exculpatory for the President was the refutation of Sections in the Steele Dossier about Cohen’s travels.
    Since the Dossier was critical for the Carter Page FISA Warrant, then the whole investigation scheme was built on a foundation of lies.

    Thank you, once Again, Mr. Michael Cohen!

  232. jason says:

    Amoral Scumbag hardest hit.

    “Florida governor Ron DeSantis has made quite a few new fans since taking office in January and a new poll shows he is making gains with some Florida voters.

    Washington D.C.-based U.S. Term Limits recently ordered a survey to be done by Pulse Opinion Research to ask Florida voters how they feel about the new governor.

    According to the poll, DeSantis has a 64 percent job approval rating among Florida voters, versus just 24 percent who disapprove.”

    Remember, Amoral Scumbag wanted a socialist to win because DeSantis was a “Trump supporter”.

    The “Trump supporter” has 62% support from Hispanics and 40% support from AAs.

  233. jason says:

    “I’m just saying it is a racist act,” she says of him using a black woman as “a prop” to suggest that President Trump is not racist.”

    The Dems have been using minorities as props and propaganda tools for decades. That really is chutzpah.

  234. jason says:

    So maybe they can impeach Trump for not wanting his transcripts released.

    May 28, 2012

    “When President Obama gave the commencement address last week at the Air Force Academy, he congratulated the cadets for excelling at one of the most demanding schools in the country.

    But decades after Mr. Obama completed his own college course work, his academic performance is still a mystery. Before and after his election as president, Mr. Obama has refused to release his college transcripts from his days as an undergraduate and a law school student.

    Most presidents’ academic records are made public by the time they reach the highest office in the land, either with their consent or by someone else digging them up.”

  235. jason says:

    it is the mueller report that will be damaging

    even if it finds no collusion,

    it will probably detail any affairs trump had, in detail, i.e. exactly what did stormy and trump do

    which will be very embarassing to the first lady, if nothing else”

    I think you are wrong on that. I doubt it will have anything about any affairs beyond details on payments for non-disclosure agreements.

    If anyone had any real evidence of any affairs it would have come out by now.

    We will know soon enough.

    -Did someone post this earlier? I thought I saw it, but not seeing it now.

    I have to say, I don’t know much about Representative Cummings, other than watching him walk arm-in-arm with Pelosi (2009?) which, quite honestly, sickened me……BUT, in this instance, I love the exchange between him and Representative Meadows. It was full of respect and a genuine caring for each other, despite their political differences, and it should be widely shown as an example of how our politics should be.

    I have to laugh at the media because so many of them said that Trump was going to do anything to get an agreement with North Korea. There constant attempts to put Trump in a no win situation is laughable. I am glad that like Reagan, he is willing to walk out of a photo op signing in order to protect US interests and leverage. Kim’s army is going to continue to starve — he doesn’t care about his people. I predict that within the month that Kim will be pleading to get a deal that will be on US’s terms.

    On another matter, for me the quote of the month comes from Micheal Cohen — who could believe it. “I have lied. But I am not a liar.” Only a Clinton hack like Lanny Davis can come up with that kind of twisted lunacy.

    242. Stormy says that she screwed Trump ONCE, that’s a one night stand, not an affair.

    235. Probably not originally, but there was a chance. The campaign wanted it to be very close in order to have a fatally damaged President Hillary with a rabid Republican Congress trying to ruin everything she does, while Trump TV and other subsidiaries scream bloody murder 24/7 and make a ton of money.

    Where you’re wrong here Sheep (and as a far bigger moron than me, you usually are), is that the Russians primary goal is to sow chaos in the American political system and begin the process of fomenting a second civil war.

    What was fun about the Republicans rebuttal is that they didn’t try to defend the President by poking holes in Cohen’s testimony, but by being silly as they possibly could. The questions about “where are the boxes? Did you hide the boxes from the Southern District?” Was particularly so. The use of that poor woman as a prop was gross. What was that supposed to do?

    BTW. The Steele dossier was a credible source of LEADS, most of which have panned out.

  248. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    Messy #253
    Your reply is incoherent. Three things:
    (1) If the Russkies were trying to create “chaos” in this Country, for the past 2 1/2 years, Congressional and ordinary mind-numb Democrats like yourself have been their willing partners.
    (2) Please identify those “leads” in the Steel Dossier that have been verified.All of the Dossier “well was poisened” if even one “lead” was fabricated.
    (3) You and those of your ilk may think that the President was on trial yesterday. No, it was Mr. Cohen, who was pathetic for your side, and provided exculpatory information in favor of The Donald.

    It being his only remotely realistic chance, I guess Schumer has to try this strategy. Even so, the states he’s trying to target have no recent history of being hospitable to Dems. None of the potential candidates outside a handful is impressive. This seems like a likely repeat of 2016:

  254. Phil says:

  258. Wes says:

    Contrary to popular belief, Chicon, I honestly don’t really care one way or the other about Lincoln. I refuse to buy into the revisionist history Bitterlaw and his ilk like to promulgate that Lincoln launched the Civil War as some kind of crusade against slavery, but realistically I don’t usually discuss Lincoln unless he’s already a topic of discussion.

    I do loathe GWB because of his colossal failure as President. I will admit that. He deserves every bit of opprobrium I give him.

    I routinely execrate Mikey because of his wide-eyed support of disastrous candidates; however, someone who thought Matt Bevin, Dick Mourdock, and Christine O’Donnell would make good Senate candidates deserves that lofty level of scorn.

  259. lisab says:

    lincoln clearly did not go to war over slavery …

    he actually said he would not attack the south unless they attacked first … which they did

    however, he was against slavery personally, and campaigned against its extension into new territories

  260. Bitterlaw says:

    2 points of clarification:

    1. Lincoln did not launch the Civil War. The evil, dirty traitors of the South started it.

    2. Lincoln’s aim was to preserve the Union. It evolved into a war war to put down the rebellion and end slavery.

  261. lisab says:

    the greatness of lincoln … and i would say of washington as well

    is that during extraordinary times, they took extraordinary measures that were ANTI-Liberty …

    but then gave the rights back after the crisis was over. for example, lincoln suspended habeas corpus, and washington suppressed the whiskey rebellion

    both for the same reason, they felt the union’s very survival was threatened.

    when the crisis was over, they returned the rights they revoked during the cris

    that is why i respect both presidents

  262. lisab says:

    it is also why i don’t knock trump for the emergency on the border

    if he thinks there is an emergency on the border, as president i would hope he would act on that

    i would hope any president would

    and i think he bent over backwards with the dems trying for a legislative solution first

    (although … i personally think he should have done this back when ryan was the speaker, i.e. tried with ryan to get the wall and then declared an emergency last year with ryan as speaker)

  263. Chicon says:

    Things must be ok for Trump – Robbie and CG have been pleasantly absent.

  264. lisab says:

    well they had to replace david robertson,

    so i guess that is a good deal?
