      “NCAA Confirms It Will Not Stage Championship Events in States Defending Girls-Only Sports”

      what could go wrong?

      it seems very unsportsmanlike for a 50 year old 6’6? 220 pound navy veteran to play on a woman’s basketball team, where most of the women on the team are about 5’6?.

      I did not buy a new lawnmower yet. I wonder if voters would be impressed that I cut the grass with a lawnmower with a handle held together with duct tape and s a screw from my Christmas tree stand. They already love my snowblower.

      I know Walt is impressed.

    8. Bitterlaw says:

      The NCAA is completely wrong. There will be nothing to stop marginal men players from swooping in to steal scholarships from women. Sports like basketball would be ruined and not just because men play with bigger balls. Softball would be dangerous once men learn how to hit a fast pitch softball (not as easy as you think). The pitcher is much closer than in baseball and despite the name, the ball is hard.

      Every sport would be more dangerous.

      I don’t know if anybody posted this but this is the greatest pitching performance ever in softball. 21 batters faced. 21 strikeouts.

    10. Tgca says:

      Yawn!

    11. Bitterlaw says:

      Maybe Tgca prefers catchers.

      What an animal this guy is; a pure waste of life. 3 months in prison for purposely and willfully killing an animal is not enough.

      I have no tolerance for this, None,

      Bitter, if I say I am transgender can I play on your girl’s basketball team?

      No. Incas are generally short.

    20. jason says:

      So Bitter discriminates against short transgenders?

    21. Bitterlaw says:

      I knew you were joking. Are we going to have a 1000 post thread on it? I would not take a trans on my girls team if they could dunk. Actually, in our league, dunking is a technical foul. I think a girl who can dunk on a 10 foot rim in a rec league should get 5 points but they don’t want to have to replace the rims.

    22. jason says:

      Forget it then, no fun if I can’t dunk.

      BREAKING: CNN Director REVEALS @CNN Coverage of @RepMattGaetz Is ‘Propaganda’

      “If the agenda say, is to get @mattgaetz right now, he’s like this Republican. He’s a problem for the Democratic Party…So we’re(@CNN) going to keep running these stories to keep hurting him.”

      Normal.

      There are no rules against llamas.

    25. jason says:

      After shaming me for years now he tells me.

    26. jason says:

      “Ethics” professor:

      “I totally agree! As a former university professor I would go further to say that it’s impossible to consider oneself a “good person” if they’re anti-student debt cancellation. All ethnically and morally good people can agree that student debt must go! Thanks for leading! Cheers.”

      Normal.

    27. jason says:

      Isn’t the MSM great.

      Maybe Gaetz had sex with “the former minor”.

      You can’t make this sh-t up.

      All you guy who have had sex with former minors are in big trouble.

      “Also among those on the trip: the former minor who is key to the investigation, whose presence on the trip was previously unreported. According to one of the women in the group who spoke on condition of anonymity, everyone on the trip was over the age of 18 — including the woman in question, who had turned 18 years old months before the trip, she said.”

    28. jason says:

      I am screwed. My wife just said she will refuse to say in court she was not a former minor.

    29. Tgca says:

      What about Lupita?

      Will she throw you under the bus too?

    30. Tgca says:

      28

      What about my dad? He was like 22 when he knocked up my mom when she was15. He should be prosecuted!

      Dig up his grave and put the losah on trial.

      Oh wait! He was a minority who spoke with an accent and had darker skin tone. Forget it! Can’t do that!

      My mom’s still alive I hear so prosecute her for taking advantage of a 22 year-old Latin guy when she was 15.

      That works! Her skin tone is very light.

    31. Bitterlaw says:

      Is she a white Hispanic? Guilty.

    32. jason says:

      What about Lupita?

      Will she throw you under the bus too?”

      Llama’s age of consent is 2.

      GFY.

    33. Coreee says:

      No such thing as a white Hispanic.

    34. Coreee says:

      I know this is news for the populations of Spain, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, etc. but you aren’t really Hispanic if you aren’t brown skinned.

      The one exception was Jeb Bush.

    35. Coreee says:

      Anyone selling guaca bowls during a Presidential campaign is either pandering or legitimately Hispanic.

      Since we know Jeb never pandered, I rest my case.

    36. Coreee says:

      By the way, I really don’t need 100 of these, so if anyone wants one you can have it for $1 plus $5 shipping and handling.

      This piece of cr-, huh, history is a limited offer.

      Hunter Biden now giving advice to Trump’s kids.

      You can’t make this sh-t up.

      “Do you think if any of the Trump children ever tried to get a job outside of their father’s business that his name wouldn’t figure into the calculation? My response has always been to work harder so that my accomplishments stand on their own,” he writes.

    38. jason says:

      President Biden on Johnson & Johnson vaccine: “There is enough vaccine that is basically 100 unquestionable for every single solitary American.”

      I have volunteered my translator services to the WH and used my extensive translator resume here at HHR as proof of competence.

      If I do get hired, it may be conflict of interest to keep translating here, so I am giving fair warning so as not to upset anybody.

    39. Tgca says:

      Jadon is missing the point (his post 1022 from last thwed) on the JJ vaccine concerns so let an EXPERT explain it with a simple example even Jadon should be able to understand.

      The concern here is aggregating risk factors.

    40. Tgca says:

      39

      Let’s say a person gets the vaccine but then a few hours later starts experiencing the expected symptoms such as a slight fever and some muscle aches in the injection arm.

      So they see they have one Tyleenawl left and takes it knowing they will likely need more so they decide to go to the store to stock up.

    41. Tgca says:

      39

      On the drive to the store, a driver under the influence runs a red light and crashes into their car at great speed forcing the car off the road and through a guard rail and into a 10 foot lake.

      The person cannot swim and there is no life preserver accessible.

    42. Tgca says:

      39

      Had the person not taken the vaccine, their risk from it would be zero in one million. But now that they’ve taken it, using the unvalidated stats Jadon provided in his post, they have increased their risk of death to 289 per million.

      This results in about 94K deaths annually which now makes the aggregate risk from taking the JJ vaccine the 7th leading cause of death in the US with diabetes and flu/pneumonia following 8th and 9th for comparative purposes.

      We can complicate it even more and assume the person is at high risk of severe heart disease which results in annual US deaths of around 2,000 per million. Now that person has increased their risk to roughly 2,300 deaths per million which would make the JJ vaccine now the leading cause of US deaths outside deaths (over 85) from old age.

    43. Tgca says:

      39

      Now can you see Jadon, the concern for the aggregated risk of taking the JJ vaccine?

      In this case, mathematical scientific models prove that FDA and CDC recommendations, of which Dr. Fow-chee agreed with in this circumstance, to pause the JJ vaccine until further study appears wise and reasonable.

      Just remember, as Biden, Kamala, Pelosi, Schumer, and Dr. Fow-Chee would say…we need to follow the science.

      Got it?

    44. Tgca says:

      This is so stoopid!

      Pelosi claims she’s a street fighter and would have been ready to do hand-to-hand battle on Jan 6th.

      Even Bitter could easily take Pelosi in one punch to her face.

      I don’t know why this crap is reported, other than to try and make her look invincible.

    45. Bitterlaw says:

      Even Bitter could easily take Pelosi in one punch to her face.

      And get pounds of makeup on my fist? Gross.

    46. jason says:

      She probably outweighs Tgca by 50 lbs and would beat the crap out of him.

      Unless he is an expert in ancient martial arts, of course.

    47. jason says:

      Maddoff conned investors out of at least $13 billion.

      He was a lawn sprinkler installer before that.

      While I have no sympathy for him, glad he rotted in jail, I do have a grudging admiration for the scheme.

      Basically an old IBM printer in a solitary room was, at its peak, printing out fake statements to the tune of $65 billion.

      And people were begging to invest more.

      Jason – I was impressed with Lupita’s soccer skills. I think that she would be effective on defense in basketball but I think that her lack of hands would hurt her on offense. However, she would be good at setting picks.

    50. Robbie says:

      I’m breaking my hiatus momentarily.

      Does Jason still want to give Fauci multiple presidential medals of freedom for pursuing a policy of a permanent pandemic?

      I took a Kung Fu class years ago and watched Kung Fu theater religiously every Sat afternoon when I was a yoot so I can handle myself.

      I’m also a fan of street fighting ala Mike Tyson. No rules. I go for the ear. Once I get my teeth gripped there, it’s ovah!

    52. Tgca says:

    53. Tgca says:

      Ok. After a 9 day battle between Jadon and Bitter over Bitter being woke, it will be refreshing to have Wobbie and Jadon battle over…well…everything.

      I just want someone to explain to me how saying city employees are entitled to due process is a firing offense.

      55. I could use the break.

    57. Robbie says:

      Does anyone with functioning braincells think Fauci (D) is going to wake up one morning anytime soon and decide we no longer need to wear masks?

    58. Bitterlaw says:

      At least Robbie, unlike Tina, admits his criticism of Dr. Fauci starts and ends with his political registration.

    59. Robbie says:

      I’ll also add a political thought. I was very bullish about Republican chances to win back the Senate after last year’s election. Not anymore, though. I do remain optimistic about winning back the House, but, at least right now, I don’t see a big wave like 1994 or 2010.

      In the Senate, I see a replay of 2010, rather than 2014, taking place. Instead of backing primary candidates who can win general elections, as happened in 2014, there seems to be a hands off approach to 2022 primaries as there was in 2010. That opened the door for the looniest slate of candidates ever.

      It’s very possible Republicans nominate Greitens, Brooks, Biggs, and an assortment of other bad candidates in other states. Brooks, a moron, would probably still win, but Greitens Biggs, and some of the odd choices in PA and GA could/would probably lose. I think Mandel could blow OH, but I think Timken would win.

      Unfortunately, lots of state party operations are choosing to model themselves after Virginia rather than Florida.

      At least Robbie, unlike Tina, admits his criticism of Dr. Fauci starts and ends with his political registration.

      – No, not at all. I’ve hated Fauci since last April. He’s become drunk on power and he has repeatedly moved the goal posts. Additionally, he’s admitted several times he’s lied to the American public. First on masks and then on herd immunity.

      Now, Fauci, who has become a Democrat partisan, is doing all he can to increase vaccine hesitancy. Otherwise, why would he tell Americans nothing changes after vaccination. Why would skeptical people take the shot if they still have to wear a mask?

      Fauci wants a permanent pandemic that allows him to remain center stage. 2020 was the best year of Fauci’s life and he wants to make sure 2021 is even better for him. That means stretching out the pandemic as long as possible. He wants mask wearing to become a permanent fixture in our lives.

      Fauci’s a fraud, a hack, and a quack. And I bet he played a pivotal role in kneecapping the J&J vaccines. The last thing he wants is normality to return anytime soon because that would mean the end of his multiple daily TV appearances.

    61. Phil says:

      Agree, Fauci telling everyone to take the vaccine and then after taking it to behave like they did before vaccinations is moronic. My theory? He love control. Simple as that. Wants lockdowns, masks, social isolation to go on and on.. as I said, he’s one of the elites who loves control. He’s drunk with it.

    62. Robbie says:

      – Republicans in Congress should go on the offense against Fauci. They should make the case Fauci doesn’t want the pandemic to ever really end. And they should repeatedly ask one simple question every time they’re in front of a camera. “If Fauci doesn’t want to make mask wearing permanent, then he needs to tell the American people that mask wearing will come to an end. Because otherwise, we’re going to conclude he does”. By doing this, they can put the little tyrant on the spot and hopefully force the media to ask him.

    63. Robbie says:

      And be forewarned, Fauci lovers. The next step he’s going to take to keep the pandemic going is say that once enough people have been vaccinated (we all know it could be 100% and it won’t be enough for Fauci), he’ll say we all need to get booster shots before the pandemic ends.

      I can just imagine a headline in 2035 that reads something like “After 15th round of booster shots for Americans, cryogenically preserved head of Fauci warns it still too dangerous to leave the house”.

    64. JeffP says:

      DeSantis is a great fighter, communicator and competent…absolutely behind that guy for 2024. I sure hope he runs. I don’t think Trump will run and I hope he plays king maker instead.

      Fauci looked really competent in the beginning…now every time he opens his mouth he gets worse and it becomes more obvious he has had an agenda all the time. What a jerk.

    65. Phil says:

      The problem is the media won’t be forced to do anything. They can’t be shamed. They can’t be pushed. They can’t be influenced in any way….or I should say, won’t be. They are Democratic hacks and won’t be shamed into asking Fauci anything. Their belief in absolute government control aligns with Fauci’s and the interests of the Democratic Party.

    66. Phil says:

      Republican Congressman Kevin Brady announces he will not seek another term in Congress. From an overwhelmingly Republican Texas district so this will not be a Democratic Party pickup opportunity.

    67. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      “In two terms, Mayor Bill de Blasio (D-NY) has plunged New York City back into crime and decay. The year 2020 saw double the shootings of 2019. Murder was up 40%. Car thefts up 67%. Burglaries up 42%. Transit crimes have doubled, and for young people born and raised in the city, like a then 17 year old me in 1992 deciding on college, it’s that statistic which ultimately drives you away.

      With this misery index looming over the election, I do not begrudge any candidate from any party proposing big ideas. New York needs big ideas if it’s to overcome its current state of decline, for in addition to the crime, the COVID lockdowns have wiped out one third of its businesses and disgraced Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s (D-NY) tax plan will impose an additional $4 billion in new taxes. Someone, please, for the love of God, try to make New York City great again.”

    68. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      At this point in time, other than the liberal media, few people take Fauci babble seriously.

    69. Robbie says:

      SanDiegoCitizen says:

      At this point in time, other than the liberal media, few people take Fauci babble seriously.

      – That may be the case, but those setting the rules follow him. That’s the only audience that matters.

      Republicans should be hitting Fauci from sunup to sundown. Since he’s clearly become a political figure, Republicans in Congress should treat him as such.

      Ruining his reputation, making him toxic, is the best way to wreck his influence. Political leaders setting corona rules will feel obligated to ignore Fauci if he becomes unpopular.

      Attack Fauci ceaselessly.

    70. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      “Gasoline prices were the biggest contributor to the monthly gain, surging 9.1% in March and responsible for about half the overall CPI increase. Gasoline is up 22.5% from a year ago, part of a 13.2% increase in energy prices.”

      Banning fracking and expensive green new deal fantasy policies are likely to send energy prices through the roof. It is a huge issue the Republicans can use in the 2022 elections.

      Agree with those who believe DiSantis would the best Republican candidate in 2024.

    71. jason says:

      Does Jason still want to give Fauci multiple presidential medals of freedom for pursuing a policy of a permanent pandemic?”

      Zzzzz….

      I have a better question for Robbie Goebbels.

      Are you still promoting Fauci as “Covid Czar” and his interviews on CNN, your favorite network after MSNBC?

      “At least Robbie, unlike Tina, admits his criticism of Dr. Fauci starts and ends with his political registration.”

      And since Robbie Goebbels LOVES Biden’s agenda, take his criticism of Fauci with a grain of salt, like everything he says here it is probably a lie.

    72. jason says:

      – Republicans in Congress should go on the offense against Fauci.”

      Fortunately, it won’t happen, they should have no interest in promoting Fauci.

      Only the liberals and CNN would love that.

      And Robbie Goebbels.

    73. jason says:

      Brooks, a moron, would probably still win”

      Sometimes even a scumbag liar like Robbie Goebbels will say something I agree with.

      But I will overcome it, I have been agreed with by scumbags before and survived.

      If Brooks is the nominee, I will say the same thing I said about Moore. I hope he wins by one vote.

    74. Tgca says:

      Theven Theven I Thay!

    75. NYCmike says:

      “And since Robbie Goebbels LOVES Biden’s agenda, take his criticism of Fauci with a grain of salt, like everything he says here it is probably a lie.”

      -Agree on this.

      But, I also agree with Robbie that jason was very foolish to ever mention the words Fauci and Medal of Honor in the same sentence…..unless it was followed by a belly laugh.

      Aside from that, Robbie sounds just as sanctimonious as “CG” does, despite his repeated failures the last 5 years to fight against the media/Democratic cabal.

    76. NYCmike says:

      https://www.foxnews.com/politics/new-conservative-group-unorthodox-tactics-biden-agenda-nominees

      -I’ll have to look into this group. Anything that delays the Biden Administration is a good thing in my book.

    77. jason says:

      Ma, that Mo Brooks bait is not very good, even the NYC fish didn’t go for it.

    78. Robbie says:

      No matter how bad Fauci is, Jason just can’t quit his unrequited love for the man who is single handedly ruining the American way of life. Hope you enjoy your never ending mask mandate, fraud.

    79. NYCmike says:

      Robbie keeps yapping about Fauci, but is still head over heels that Trump is gone……

    80. Phil says:

      Officer involved in shooting in Kenoshaw Wisconsin last summer reinstated with no charges.

      That ought to stir up the left. Blacks looting and burning businesses to begin at 8. Burn baby, burn. Lol

    81. jason says:

      Robbie Goebbels in Germany during the 1930’s:

      “Isn’t that Hitler guy awful? I am appalled at every rally I attend and every speech I read, just terrible. His book is horrendous, I bought 100 copies to distribute to co-workers and family so they can see how evil he is. Every party meeting I go to is the same thing, vicious rhetoric, the friends I take think the same thing. The flyers I have been distributing are just filled with hate.”

    82. Wobbles says:

      ‘for the man who is single handedly ruining the American way of life”

      How dare you say I am elevating the importance of Dr. Fauci?

    83. jason says:

      I have news for Robbie Goebbels.

      The man he did everything he could to help elect, Joe Biden, is ruining the American way of life.

    84. Meldrim says:

      Not good news: https://www.foxnews.com/politics/mark-robinson-north-carolina-senate-2022

      If NC Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson runs for the Senate, he might beat Walker and McCrory in the GOP primary, but be a weaker candidate than either one in the general.

      And even if he won, wouldn’t Dem Gov. Cooper then get to appoint the new Lt. Gov.? Or would the vacancy be filled some other way? Wes?

    85. jason says:

      Meldrim doesn’t like black Republicans?

      Who knew?

      Maybe he is the new Tim Scott?

    86. jason says:

      “There’s no reason why anyone, other than military, needs a gun magazine that holds more than 10 rounds,” DeGette said.

      I give this the stupidest gun control statement of the year, and there is a lot of competition.

      How about this reason: a criminal, kook, or terrorist shooting at you has 11 rounds. Or 20.

      Or that you can pretty much change an empty magazine for a loaded one in a matter of seconds, the idea that this would make any difference in a mass shooting situation is ridiculous.

      But it does help that people on the gun control side are so clueless, starting with the “assault weapon” BS. They actually want to ban a weapon that does not even exist.

    87. Cash Cow TM says:

      Pond and pond filter has been cleaned.

      Then he had to deal with a dehumidifier that malfunctioned and kept running after it was full (how long, no one knows) and Walt had a mess of water to get out of the basement carpet.

      Then he tackled the water softener to get rid of a salt dam last night.

    88. Wes says:

      Meldrin, under NC law, while the Governor can appoint replacements for vacancies in statewide offices, the appointee must be of the same party as the incumbent.

    89. Meldrim says:

      Historically, I tend to like black Republicans with far more frequency than I do white Republicans. (I didn’t like Will Hurd, though; and I no longer like Michael Steele, to whose U.S. Senate campaign I donated in 2006 (the other black Republican Senate candidate to whom I donated that year, Keith Butler of MI, I still like.) I was ecstatic that Mark Robinson beat less-conservative prinary opponents in 2020 and went on to be elected Lt. Gov., but that was prior to hearing about his comments that were, shall we say, not very supportive of Jews. And since (i) I don’t think that he’d be as strong a candidate in a U.S. Senate general election than McCrory or Mark Walker and (ii) I want Robinson to stay as Lt. Gov. so that Cooper can’t go anywhere, I’d prefer for Robinson not to run for the Senate.

      Tim Scott has served in the SC House and had a polished, coherent message when he ran in the GOP primary in the open SC-01 in 2010–I know, because I became convinced that he was the real deal and donated to his campaign despite thinking that he would be a longshot taking on SC GOP scions Paul Thurmond and Carroll Campbell III. I certainly don’t get the sane vibe from Robinson. Hopefully he’ll get some experience in the leguslative process as Lt. Gov. and become a viable gubernatorial or Senate candidate in the future–assuming that he clarifies that he’s not anti-Semitic, of course (some of those statements attributed to him were pretty bad).

    90. Meldrim says:

      #92, thanks, Wes. So Cooper would be able to appoint a RINO to replace Robinson. I take it that no legislative confirmation would be required?

    91. Robbie says:

      Mark Robinson running for Senate reinforces my worry 2022 will be a lot more like 2010 than 2014.

      I think Democrats, as of today, are sizable favorites to win outright control of the chamber, maybe by 2 or 3 seats.

    92. NYCmike says:

      ” reinforces my worry ”

      -WHOA!

      For a moment, the snakes were worried Robbie was going to raise his “worry bar” a little!

    93. NYCmike says:

      Of course, Robbie thinks we need all Boehner-type candidates to help defeat the Democratic/media cabal!

      Another reason to have multiple loaded magazines or larger capacity size ones is you never know when you’re going to be attacked by alligators here in FL.

      I have 3 guns and two of them are minimum 10 mag capacity, though I do have one 17 mag capacity because it just might take 17 9MM shots to stop an alligator.

    96. jason says:

      Thanks for the Wikipedia regurgitation, Meldrim.

      But “Meldrim doesn’t like black Republicans” was a joke.

      I am fine with Robinson staying as Lt. Governor given his controversial statements and the fact he basically got elected based on a video of a town meeting he attended in 2018, maybe some experience as an elected official will benefit him before he moves on to higher office.

      Huh, entertain him.

    103. Meldrim says:

      I, for one, am cautiously optimistic that the GOP will regain the Senate after the 2022 elections (if it doesn’t regain it first due to the untimely demise of a Democrat senator from a state with a GOP governor). I think that Chris Sununu will run for the Senate and beat Hassan in NH, and Kelly and (especially) Warnock are eminently beatable in AZ and GA, respespectively. True, PA will be a tough hold, but I think that the GOP’s ofds are close to 50-50 there, and the other potential Dem targets will be tougher for them than it would be for the GOP to pick up NV. The GOP doesn’t need another 2014 in Senate races; even results similar to the disappointing 2010 cycle would be sufficient to give us a good majority in the Senate.

    104. jason says:

      Here is how fast you can switch clips on an AR-15. If I am just willing to drop the used clip to the floor using my left hand to release it and have the new clip in my right hand it takes about a second.

      Obviously it would take longer if you have to reach into a pocket or a knapsack for one, but still this legislation would not hinder any mass shooting, it is just plain harassment of lawful gun owners, which is always the primary goal of “gun control”.

    105. jason says:

      I think Hassan and Warnock are beatable, if Sununu runs and the GOP doesn’t have a deadender in GA. The others are long shots in my view.

    106. Meldrim says:

      “Thanks for the Wikipedia regurgitation, Meldrim.”

      Huh? I don’t believe that Wikipedia says that Tim Scott “had a polished, coherent message when he ran in the GOP primary in the open SC-01 in 2010,” and if someone did add that it would get deleted immediately. As I said, I remember that primary very well (and still remember where I was when I learned that Scott had beaten Thurmond in the run-off), and I don’t think that Mark Robinson is a future Tim Scott.

      But I agree with the last sentence in your post #100, which is essentially the sane thing I had said (although you added the bit about the flukish nature of his primary victory, with which I also agree).

    107. jason says:

    112. Wes says:

      Meldrin, if Robinson moved to the Senate, then the NCGOP would submit a list of names to the Governor for a replacement. Cooper would then select one.

    113. Wes says:

      A lot more like 2010 than 2014, Robbie?

      As I recall, Republicans gained Senate seats in 2010, though not control. If 2022 is like 2010, then Republicans will gain, not lose, Senate seats.

    114. Bitterlaw says:

      113. Don’t worry, Jason. You are an expert on what you don’t watch.

    115. Bitterlaw says:

      Jason – The interesting thing is that Fauci has been much the same under Biden as he was under Trump. He was good enough for Trump.

    116. NYCmike says:

      “He was good enough for Trump.”

      -Could Trump have legally fired him?

    117. jason says:

      Not from his job, but from the task force?

      Sure.

    118. jason says:

      The task force was a panel of experts and officials from various areas of expertise. Trump could put anyone on the task force and take anybody off.

      But he kept Fauci on for the duration.

      Why? Because, as I have pointed out here many times, Fauci was not the leader, the czar, or the policy maker. He was a member of the task force with a limited role. He had no power to implement any policy or mandate any shutdowns.

    119. jason says:

      Trump picked his advisors. He followed their advice, or he didn’t.

      Trump got a lot of advice from a lot of people. He made his own decisions.

      That’s the way it works.

      Now if Robbie Goebbels wants to say “Fauci single handedly detroyed the American way of life”, on whose watch was that?

    120. jason says:

      113. Don’t worry, Jason. You are an expert on what you don’t watch.”

      And you are an expert on pretending you don’t see what you watch.

    121. jason says:

      What I said was that he is not a Republican, which he readily admits by calling himself “libertarian Republican”, which does not exist. He says he is a “constitutional conservative” or “libertarian conservative” but he is neither of those either.

      I never said he was “bad for the Republican party”, although in the past I would have loved to see him gone.

      Now I don’t care who is in the Republican Party, they can nominate Ron Paul for all I care.

    122. jason says:

      I think Rand Paul is a moron, and in my view anybody who thinks Iran with nuclear bombs is not a threat should not be in public office.

      But it doesn’t mean I disagree with everything he says, I liked it that he challenged Fauci on wearing masks after being vaccinated, and I certainly agree with him on the GA election law.

      Softball update. My team won 5-1 tonight. Strange stat – We only had 2 hits. The other team only gave up 5 walks in 6 innings. However, more of our runners got on base on dropped third strikes and bad throws by the catcher to first. 4 of our runs were steals home. Not pretty but I tell the girls that if they get to first, they better be on third within 5 pitches by stealing twice.

      This is so sad!

      No reason this guy had to escalate this and lose his life.

      This is why men are significantly more likely to get harmed by police than women with a confrontational attitude that escalates both sides that does not always end well.

      You can clearly hear the fear in the police officers as they know this is do or die situation with their own lives.

      The one officer is breathing very heavy and it’s clear he’s feeling the fear.

      If perps would just obey the commands, the situation would be de-escalated.

      People have no idea what life threatening situations police deal with that puts them on edge and make them defensive in the line of duty but this is a perfect example of only having moments to respond.

      Over 8 minutes of pleading with him and then he tries to shoot again. Very sad.

    129. Tgca says:

      Both my brothers had run in with the law and spent time in prison. One brother assaulted a police officer when he got caught during a burglary. He was underage at the time and lucky the officer did not shoot him.

      My mom would like to excuse this away as officers beating on him because he was a Rican or the way he looked and dressed but it was because he attacked the officer.

      This is common behavior of men, often young angry men with a history of criminal behavior, even minor criminal behavior.

      Getting caught in criminal activity causes anger so they project it in those catching them.

      I think young men, especially poor men of color are at the greatest risk because they have been cast aside by society but I do not see the deaths decreasing until they learn to cooperate as instructed during interactions with police.

      We cannot expect police to put their lives on the line and not take defensive actions against those that could harm or kill them.

      Studies show that this is not the case with women because women are less likely to assault an officer and be seen as much of a threat as a dude is to an officer.

      It’s really sad so I don’t expect significant change here.

      So much for Biden’s “bi-partisan” commission I guess.

    133. jason says:

      “According to Rasmussen Reports, “Seventy-four percent (74%) of Republicans believe it is likely last year’s presidential election was affected by cheating, a view shared by 30% of Democrats and 51% of voters not affiliated with either major party.”

      Think about that. Nearly a third of Democrats admitted that they believe cheating may have impacted the result—meaning that they think Trump may have been the legitimate winner of the election.

      Overall, a majority of all voters, 51 percent, believe it is likely that cheating affected the outcome—35 percent say it’s very likely.

      “Concerns about cheating have plagued President Joe Biden ever since Election Day,” explains Rasmussen. “In November, a Rasmussen Reports survey found 47% of voters believed it was likely that Democrats stole votes or destroyed pro-Trump ballots in several states to ensure that Biden would win. An overwhelming majority of GOP voters believe Democrats cheated in 2020. Republican officials have responded by launching an election integrity project to make it ‘easier to vote and harder to cheat.”

      The poll also found that voters are far more concerned with election integrity than they are making it easier to vote. “Asked which is more important, making it easier for everybody to vote, or making sure there is no cheating in elections, 60% of Likely Voters say it’s more important to prevent cheating, while 37% said it’s more important to make it easier to vote,” explains Rasmussen. “Only 22% of voters say it is currently too hard to vote, while 34% said it’s too easy to vote, and 41% say the level of difficulty in voting is about right.”

      I think conservatives need to publish a list with all the CEOs of these companies so people know who they’re dealing with in the future.

      Who are and are not supportive of conservative causes so all conservatives, except Bitter, can determine if they wish to support them through consumer spending.

      Unless I have no reasonable alternative, I avoid patronizing those services that insult me. I’ve already crossed off Bed&Bath and Kohl’s, and of course, Woke Coke. I refuse to go to the theater and support any movies with over the top liberal hacks too.

      Lest Bitter is offended, since I won’t be voting in 2022 I am not helping Kurt Schlichter’s backlash either, since he thinks 2022 is “key”.

      But FWIW here is his case. I think his mistake is that he thinks the old normal will return, I am afraid the new normal is here to stay.

      I love “new conservawoke Kemp” btw.

      “The backlash begins.

      Right now, it is mere stirrings. Americans are slow to anger, but they are mighty in their wrath. When woke bull-Schiff was confined to college campuses, we could live with it. We didn’t see it. It was not in our faces. But now it is. It’s everywhere in the institutions, and it’s filtering down to people in their jobs, on their televisions and even in their homed when young Kaden returns from Cornell as “Kasey” and informs xir parents they are committing literal violence on xim by not paying xir tuition anymore.

      Do they imagine that people will just give up and give in?

      Some will. The Fredocons did, of course, but they are weak.

      But with Normal Americans, the risk is mistaking patience and restraint for weakness.

      Think I’m wrong?

      Go try to buy some 5.56mm rounds.

      The backlash is building. The anger is real and rising. Yeah, everyone’s getting their .45s and AR15s, which is proper – an armed people is a free people – but the reality is we are unlikely to get to the kind of crisis where they come into active play. As much as some leftists salivate at the idea of declaring war on normal people (read their social media and tell me I’m wrong), there’s almost certainly not going to be civil conflict, though with cops as competent as Taser Girl and our broken military focused on pretending boys can turn into girls, I kind of like patriots’ odds against those few traitors who would not quit rather than suppress the American people for the benefit of their leftist masters. No, the violence will be limited to Democrat areas as Democrat voters burn Democrat cities ruled by Democrat politicians. Which would seem make it a Democrat problem.

      But the backlash is coming, peaceful but unstoppable. First, you’ll see the social pushback. We will see brave pols like DeSantis and the newly-concervawoke Kemp. We’ll see conservative media figures refusing to honor the narrative guardrails of the lib-fascists, just like Tucker does.

      Soon we’ll see comics attacking this garbage, then other artists joining in. Then more politicians, who will start passing laws banning these practices and gutting these woke corporations. Trust Busting. Banning Chinese collaboration. Regulating big tech.

      And we’ll see normal people pushing back in their personal lives.

      Of course, we’ll see latecomers like Nikki! and Kristi! who will try to pretend they always knew what time it is. But we’ll remember that when the fight, started these REMFs were cowering in the rear, afraid to offend the Chamber or the NCAA. And they will be ignored.

      The 2022 election will be the key. We’re going to crush the left. Why? Because things will get worse, much worse. Crime. A wrecked economy. China will kick our woke military’s behind. Think Jimmy Carter in 1980, but without the competence and a lot more anti-Americanism.

      This will be a tough fight, and it is only the beginning. Just do not fall into despair. Do not withdraw – they prefer you submit but they will settle for you giving up (for now – they’ll come for you eventually). Do not fear them.

      Be part of the backlash. Get in now, at the beginning.”

      1. A beautifully American ideal, but a reality denied to many for much of this nation’s history.

      2. As Americans, we know that in our democracy we should not expect to agree on everything.

      3. However, regardless of our political affiliations, we believe the very foundation of our electoral processes rests upon the ability of each of us to cast our balance for the candidates of our choice.

      4. For American democracy to work for any of us, we must ensure the right to vote for all of us.

      5. We should all feel a responsibility to defend the right to vote and to oppose any discriminatory legislation or measures that restrict or prevent any eligible voters from having an equal and fair opportunity to cast a ballot.

      6. Voting is the lifeblood of our democracy and we call upon all Americans to join us and taking a nonpartisan stand for this most basic and fundamental rate of all Americans.

      It does not have any radical lefty statements in it about voting being denied to people now in any state even though that may be the premise some on the left push.

      It’s a definitional statement which I think most can agree upon.

      So this is not controversial.

      I suspect the reason Woke Coke and Delta did not sign is because they’re keeping a low profile after being lambasted and ridiculed for their rush to judgment to appease the radical lefties.

      American Indians struggled to survive. In 10-15 thousand years only about 3-4 million existed in North America by 1500. Their average lifespan was about 35, and they battled among themselves, with famine and with the elements.

      Those that want to support woke airlines should do so.

      Agreed. We don’t have a lot of written history of American Indians going back before the 1500s but we do know they did war amongst each other and had territorial disputes.

      We don’t talk about these things because they are not popular to discuss.

      Also, like many customs back then, Indian customs among their people could be harsh and not what we would call basic human rights today.

      It is politically correct to make only settlers the scapegoat of many issues that existed prior to colonization of America.

      I no longer travel for work so any travel I do will be by vehicle. I will not allow any Woke-a-Cola in my car.

      Huh, I normally drink Scotch on flights. But if Scotch goes woke, gin or vodka will be ok too.

      Remember when Trump shouldn’t appoint a SCOTUS justice because RBG’s dying words were “I want to be replaced by the next President”.

      Under the bus she goes…

      “Back in 2019, Ginsburg sat down for an interview with NPR and said in no uncertain terms that nine is the magic number for the Supreme Court and that expanding it out is a “bad idea.”

      “Nine seems to be a good number. It’s been that way for a long time,” she said, adding, “I think it was a bad idea when President Franklin Roosevelt tried to pack the court.”

      Ginsburg was actually against the court looking partisan, and nothing says “partisan” like court packing.

      “If anything would make the court look partisan,” she said, “it would be that — one side saying, ‘When we’re in power, we’re going to enlarge the number of judges, so we would have more people who would vote the way we want them to.’”

    163. Tgca says:

      167

      Agreed! I should not assume Expertise in LisaB’s area.

      However, I do recall Powell being adamantly against gays in the military due to impacting logistics and morale.

      It’s funny that he made many of the same arguments against gays in the military that folks made about AA integration in the military 60+ years ago.

      But who knows, maybe I’m the IGORENT one since I’m not certain trannies or women should be fully integrated into face-to-face combat situations, but not because of morale, but more of operational logistics.

      Are men more likely to be overly protective of women and therefore less focused in combat than they would be of men, therefore introducing more risk? I think this is fair whether it’s a woman, a child, or an elderly person.

      Am I too old fashioned and chauvinistic to think that male instinct is to protect females whereas that instinct is less when it comes to other males?

      I know I would feel more obligated to protect a metrosexual like Bitter in hand-to-hand combat with Nancy Pelosi, the street fighter, as say opposed to Jadon or Wes taking her on because llama lovers are used to dealing with ferocious llamas, and Wes, well, he’s just good with his hands by trade.

      I guess we all have our lenses we peer life through.

    164. Tgca says:

      Pelosi says she will not allow bill to expand SCOTUS to have a floor vote at this time. She says she wants to see outcome of SCOTUS Commission 1st which means at least a 6-month delay.

      So why all the fuss over this the last two days?

      I’m wondering if this is strategy:

      1. Appease radicals to let them know it’s in the works and give them hope so they don’t cause trouble otherwise.

      2. Pull back because they’ve seen a lot of the bad publicity it’s gotten the last 2 days.

      3. Trickery, where they’ll spring it out and vote on it some time in future before 2022 elections.

      4. Nancy, the fearless street fighter, is simply being honest and wants to see what the SCOTUS Commission recommends 1st because she believes in the rule of law and doing what’s best for the country above all else *cough cough cough*.

      House Bill 1674, which passed through the Senate by a vote of 38-10, would increase penalties for blocking roadways while also providing immunity to drivers who kill or injure motorists while fleeing the scene of a riot in fear for their lives, according to the Associated Press.”

      160. Jason, I’ve said for years that the Europeans didn’t do anything to native Americans that they hadn’t been doing to each other, and worse, for 10,000 years before the Europeans arrived.

      Their entire history was one of constant warfare, genocide, slavery, torture, and human sacrifice. Europeans just had better technology so they were more efficient at slaughtering native Americans.

      You can’t take things out of historical context.

      I gotta be honest – get out of the neighborhoods that allow for these children to run around like this. If the parents won’t band together to stop this crap, let the perps take over until the good people shout loud enough to overwhelm the mob when the authorities go back in and clean house. That is the only reason Mayor Rudy got elected – it was so bad, that even NYC elected a Republican.

      If I was a cop, stay in the car and respond AFFTER the perps have victimized their targets. Sorry, that is what it seems like those neighborhoods want!

    176. jason says:

      I saw another Titanic special last night while Bitter enjoyed his social justice lessons on woke sports.

      They identified the body of a toddler that had been recovered and buried without identity. After exhuming the body and years of testing the DNA, they finally were able to name him among the 6 toddlers who died.

      But in the end, the family decided to leave the tomb unnamed as a tribute to the other 5 toddlers, so nothing changed.

    177. jason says:

      Complicating matters, the DNA of two of the toddlers matched (as far as could be determined), so they claimed it was a Finnish boy’s body based on a molar they found, it had to be from the younger boy’s body.

      But it wasn’t. After announcing the name with big fanfare and taking the Finnish descendants to Halifax and telling them they had identified their relative, the discovery of a pair of shoes taken from the body and further DNA proved it was the English boy’s body.

      An interesting statistic of the Titanic. Of the 144 first class women on the Titanic, only 4 died, one of them having voluntarily stayed with her husband.

    178. Tgca says:

      Well all I can say is thank God Walt was not traveling on the Titantic that eventful day because he had house chores to do instead.

      Bitter hardest hit.

      “In mid-March, MLB’s net favorability rating among Republicans was 47%, the highest of the four major U.S. sports leagues. Since then, it has plummeted to 12%, dropping the league below the NFL and NHL, according to new data.”

      “Look, you can push people, but only so far. People want to be able to go watch a baseball game without Democrat politics punching them in the face. If the MLB can’t provide that kind of non-partisan environment, their ratings and attendance are going to continue to suffer. It doesn’t have to be that way, but they seem to fear the left more than like making money these days.”

      That question has already been settled.

      My matching outfits are manly fashionable. Usually black or gray with occasional dark blue. It’s not like I’m wearing salmon-colored clothing like Michael.

      Im not into the bright colors that metrosexuals up in Philly wear. I like dark moody colors or white between Memorial and Labor Days is fine too.

      I don’t go out in public with inappropriately mismatched clothing. When I see someone with black sports shoes, blue socks, black shorts and a green shirt, I want to hit them.

      It’s like smothering filet mignon with ketchup for you meat lovers.

    187. Tgca says:

      Uh-oh….Jadon hardest hit!

      Wokeness is popular! Bitter may be on the right side of history.

      Nearly 60% of Americans believe healthcare is part of infrastructure.

      This is evidenced by polls from NPR and Quinnipiac polls that show his infrastructure plan is widely popular.

      They provide evidence of his success compared to Trump who remained underwater in polling his entire presidency.

      It looks like Biden will go down in history as one of the greatest presidents, and he’s only been in office less than 90 days.

      Wow!

      Looks like many HHR posters are going to be eating crow while the Never Trumpers who left us here at HHR were correct all along.

    189. jason says:

      Yes.

      Next question?

      Quinnipiac.

      Ah yes, let’s go with that.

      Quinnipiac polling 11-2-2020

      This is true.

      We all agree Bitter supports woke sports and culture.

      The reasons for this are:

      1) Bitter supports woke sports and culture
      2) A wide range of HHR posters believe Bitter supports woke sports and culture for some unknown reason.

    200. jason says:

      Chester also confesses that CNN drives the narrative, asking leading questions in order to get people to say what the network wants them to say.

    203. Bitterlaw says:

      We all agree Bitter supports woke sports and culture but can’t find a single post where he states he supports woke sports and culture. In fact, jason admits that he Bitter does not have woke beliefs.

      Fixed it. This is getting to be a full time job.

    204. Tgca says:

      This is insane!

      Saying math rigor is racist is idiotic and leads to poorly trained scientists. I used to tutor other science majors in college in calculus and physics which is mostly mathematical expression of the behavior of physical phenomena in nature.

      Math is inextricably linked to many of the sciences and without it you could not have the discoveries and technological progress we’ve gained over the years.

      Do we really want someone working in a lab if they can’t do the basic math? Do you want someone to develop or fill your medicines if they can’t do math? Do we want people building bridges that can’t understand math? Try building planes without mathematical concepts needed to determine flight distances traveled and speed, or fuel usage.

      Math rigor is important in all areas of life, and it should not be dumbed down to make the masses feel better.

      If you weaken the core math requirements, you inevitably slow progress and risk poor quality in products and services.

      It took Einstein an additional 10 years to work out general relativity theory because he had to get the math right to support his theory. He also spent 30 years, unsuccessfully, trying to develop the math for an all encompassing equation to support uniting the major forces of nature so the math rigor is indeed important.

      We are raising people to be stoopid if we buy into math is racist. The concepts of math have been in existence since the beginning of the universe and long before people existed so inherently, it can’t be racist.

      It’s like saying gravity is racist or quantum theory is racist.

      We are dumbing down the world and that’s what some want because that’s how you control the masses.

      Look at Jadon, whatever Dr. Fow-chee says, no matter how wrong he is, Jadon accepts and wants to give him a medal for it. Point proven on controlling the masses.

      Bitter has literally hundreds of posts defending woke sports and culture.

      Everyone who reads them understands what they mean.

      Bitter claims they don’t mean what they mean.

      Pointing this out is a full time job.

      “jason admits that he Bitter does not have woke beliefs”

      What jason said was that supporting woke sports and culture doesn’t mean, as Bitter wants to pretend it does (playing victim), that he is a Communist or member of Antifa.

      Correcting Bitter’s constant lies is a full time job.

    206. Tgca says:

      By the way, Einstein was not an overly impressive student. His 3 earth shattering papers in 1905 were not widely accepted upon publication. He was considered a 25 year-old nobody compared to the leading physicists of the day who had all types of credentials, experience, and stature.

      He ended up revolutionizing physics and bypassing them all but it took an additional 10 years for him to get recognition or even a prestigious employment, and he did not win a Nobel prize until 1921 and that was not even for his most radical and important relativity theory contributions that changed the world of physics forever, it was fir describing the the photoelectric effect, important, but not as instrumental as his other contributions.

      Now to be fair, sooner or later others would have discovered the principles of relativity but you don’t give credit to others for things that would happen later on if only their timing was better.

      Einstein was ahead of others here and it probably would have taken another 10 to 15 years for others to reach his conclusions on their own.

      The point of all this rambling?

      MATH is important and you can’t dumb it down for the masses so their feelings are not hurt.

    207. jason says:

      Look at Jadon, whatever Dr. Fow-chee says, no matter how wrong he is, Jadon accepts and wants to give him a medal for it.”

      Wow, Tgca is competing with Bitter to see who is the biggest liar?

      We can settle it right now as a tie, no problem, and give both participation trophies.

      I never said I agreed with all of Fauci’s positions. In fact I have been clear I don’t, nobody here has opposed shutdowns more than me.

      What I have done is defend his limited role in the COVID task force for what it is, just one more member and one more opinion for the President to take into account, and push back against the idiotic statement that he is a “fraud” when he has decades of experience and accomplishments that just make anyone calling him a “fraud” look like a moron.

      It is the MSM and useful idiots like Tgca and Robbie Goebbels that have elevated him to god like status and have promoted his every statement and gospel as somehow the ultimate policy maker on COVID, when in reality Fauci has ZERO power to implement or mandate ANYTHING.

      Tgca has made his bed with Dr. Fauci and now want to whine 24/7 about how “influential” he is.

      The hypocrisy is astounding.

    208. Bitterlaw says:

      This freak show needs to fight with somebody. It’s my turn. I get it.

      So if I just stop watching sports and drinking soda I can return and all will be forgiven. F it. Your conclusion about me is wrong and stupid. Just yesterday, somebody posted Coke was backing off a bit. This happened despite me and proves I personally have no impact.

    209. jason says:

      Nobody has minimized and contextualized Fauci’s power, influence and role here more than I have.

      Nah, same old lie over and over. I never told you to stop watching sports or stop drinking soda.

      Fine with me.

      This is probably right but the guy probably won’t be union president much longer.

      “The president of the Chicago police union said the cop who fatally shot a 13-year-old boy who appeared to have a gun in his hand right before he raised his hands was “100 percent justified” in opening fire.

      “He was 100 percent right,” Fraternal Order of Police president John Catanzara said, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. “The offender still turned with a gun in his hand. This occurred in eight-tenths of a second.”

      In an appearance later on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time,” Catanzara doubled down — even insisting that the “officer’s actions were actually heroic.”

      “Time-lapse video shows that that officer had eight-tenths of a second to determine if that weapon was still in his hand or not. Period,” he said.

      “There’s no way a rational person can say they can process that and their muscle reaction would be less than one second. The officer does not have to wait to be shot at or shot in order to respond and defend himself. There is no obligation whatsoever.”

      Wow, Tgca is competing with Bitter to see who is the biggest liar?

      1st, I’m too tiny by Bitter’s only conclusion to offer me an extra petite uniform from his team to compete with Bitter about who is the bigger liar because clearly I’m tiny per Bitter and Bitter is fat per LisaB so Bitter must be the bigger liar.

      2nd, I have not lied about anything. You got the hots for Dr. Fow-chee and we all know it but that’s ok since it’s not the 1st time you’ve been turned on by some unethical or medical quack preaching science that is neither validated or known to be false from experience.

      3rd, Dr. Fow-chee is not just one member of a bigger team with equal influence. He is a leading member and the reason he is the one booked on all the TV shows and has become a household name when the others have not because folks like Jadon elevated him from day one as an authority who should get medals. 99% of folks can’t name another person on the task force, therefore by default, and hence design, Dr. Fow-chee had the greatest influence of all task form members.

      Saying Dr. Fow-chee is just another member denies reality and is like saying Oppenheimer and Fermi were just another member of the Manhattan Project or like saying Colin Powell was just another memeber of the Bush administration. These folks, like Dr. Fow-Chee are there purposely to add enormous influence and confidence to guide the president.

      This is why Trump was threatened with impeachment if he tried to get rid of Dr. Fow-chee, and Dr. Fow-chee bought into this idolatry that the MSM and other bestowed on him for viewers like Jadon who claimed he brought credibility to the task force and was worthy of medals. You don’t say those things about folks who are just another team member, implying they have equal influence as all others.

      Suck it up Bish! I outed you as Dr. Fow-Chee worshipper.

      Will the goal be all touchy feely so everyone can participate and feel valued, even if they don’t understand the core foundations?

      The point of grouping folks together by discipline and talent is to ensure a common goal is met. If we put 6th graders in class with 1st graders, how does that help develop either to meet their potential?

      Why don’t we do that in sports then? Make sure the teams are stacked not only with talented sportsman but also with folks that can sink a basketball into a net maybe once every thousand throws. How about a baseball hitter that strikes out 99% of the time? Maybe a quarterback that can’t throw the ball more than 15 feet.

      It’s absurd!

      235

      Cruz needs to wear a mask because Dr. Fow-chee says so. He needs to wear 3 masks, unless vaccinated, then he only needs to wear 2 masks.

      Dr. Fow-chee has become like Colin Powell who was once well-respected and one that folks deferred to as the great wise sage on matters in his expertise and that all sought to have in their interviews to opine because everyone else was irrelevant and not worthy of him…that is until he failed miserably and ridiculed himself historically with faulty information and poor judgment when relying on information that he should have known was questionable. To think that many pretty much were willing to hand over the presidency to this moron is unbelievable in hindsight.

      We see history repeating itself with Dr. Fow-chee and history will show this guy was so caught up in himself that he was repeatedly wrong, naively relied on poor resources, misjudged information and models, failed to listen to folks with more intimate knowledge then him, but spends a good deal of his time in front of cameras trying to explain away his errors while pushing for more extreme measures that look like they will fail.

      If this guy was in corporate America, he would be fired and replaced with someone who had better judgment.

      Me wonders if he’s trying to stick around long enough to get a good hit to salvage his failures to date.

      Dr. Fow-chee is clearly past his expiration date but does not realize it yet.

      To tear apart a fetus piece by piece or chemically burn it to death is the most inhumane procedure.

      I hope science does prove one day that the fetus actually feels the pain or is aware of its impending destruction at an early state because if that is the case then ABORTION is done in America because how could any decent human permit such cruelty to their offspring?

      I have consistently said if you are comfortable with woke sports you should watch. I never commented on soda, but same thing, if you want to drink Coke by all means go ahead.

      At this point, although I identify as pro choice I oppose abortion as an option.

      Unfortunately many anti-choicers refuse to find common ground with people like me and end up defeating their own ends of at least reducing the number of abortions.

      People like Dick the Misogynist Bastard Mourdock further hurt the prospect of any common ground with evil statements declaring God intends pregnancy as a result of rape.

      Further, idiotic attempts at laws saying women have to have cameras shoved inside them before having abortions aren’t helping.

      If more people on your side were to make the case you made and push for softer measures like simply restricting abortions to the first trimester then abortion would be less of a political hindrance to socons.

      I have always referred to him as what he is, just another member and another opinion on the task force.

      Tgca above just wrote 2 more long posts exalting Fauci way beyond his influence or power.

      Tgca marvels and slobbers all over Fauci’s “influence”, another useful idiot in the service of the MSM.

      Maybe if Tgca weans himself from the MSM and fake news, he will be a lot less obsessed with Fauci.

      No Jadon.

      That’s your way of trying to shift the debate from you fawning over Dr. Fow-chee the last year to now saying others here elevated him because they criticized him.

      That’s a silly argument.

      If that’s the case, your criticism of Mayor Butt must have then elevated him to a serious candidate in which he outshined and outlasted most other candidates because you brought attention to him by criticizing him and no one knew who he was until the 2020 primary season began.

      My posts mocked and criticized Dr. Fow-Chee.

      Your posts state:
      he brings credibility to Trump team,
      he is the most credible person Trump had,
      he is the foremost authority,
      he deserves medals,
      he is the best we have,
      I’m a big fan of his
      he’s 79 and doesn’t have to do this
      he is doing it out of a sense of duty
      Etc etc etc

      Those are your posts and you also posted his bios and credentials to make your points.

      Your posts sure sound like someone elevating him above all else.

      You bought into the MSM talking points. I never once made those statements, you did! That’s how he became elevated because 99% of Americans never heard of the guy before people like you swooned over him.

      CNN put him on TV to cater to people like you.

      Also, you never started arguing the “elevated” argument until all the failures and negative press came out on Dr. Fow-chee so I take that as your way of trying to walk back your love for Dr. Fow-Chee and change the subject from your adulation of him so you don’t have to admit you misplaced your judgment early on when others here did not.

      I can provide numerous posts of your adulation. Please provide one post I ever made that would elevate his status. Criticizing someone is not adulation, it is criticism.

      I have always said he is just one more member of the task force. Always. I did defend him from idiotic attacks like “fraud” and I still do. He is no fraud. But I never made him spokesman, czar or guru of COVID, and I always said he has no power to implement or mandate any policy or lockdown. If you don’t like the policies, blame those that actually mandated them.

      From the beginning, when the argument was about Fauci, I stated he is just one opinion and one person on a multi-talented task force. I consistently stated the buck stops with Trump, it is Trump’s job to weigh Fauci’s views against other opinions and consequences.

      It was useful idiots like you and Robbie Goebbels that ate up the MSM narrative that made him the COVID guru.

      The point of this quote is not “Dr. Fauci is the main scientist”, if it was I would not have quoted the entire segment.

      But you know that, you have no argument so you have to be dishonest.

      Brett Favre Pummels Politics in Sports, Says NFL Kneeling Brought ‘More Turmoil Than Good’

      “I know when I turn on a game, I want to watch a game. I want to watch players play and teams win, lose, come from behind. I want to watch, you know, all the important parts of the game, not what’s going on outside of the game. And I think the general fan feels the same way.”

    290. Bitterlaw says:

      So Jason admits he can’t find any posts.

      I oppose all of it and have opposed Democrats in all of my posts here since 2004. I plan on running specifically to oppose Democrats and this woke bs. What will Jason do? Will he have more impact watching Wicked Tuna or Deadliest Catch?

    291. Bitterlaw says:

      Please explain how I am afraid of friends and neighbors? That’s like saying I am afraid of squirrels. I don’t socialize with them, either.

      Jason still makes the false assumption that I watch sports to see woke messages. I ignore the messages and just watch the games.

    292. Bitterlaw says:

      ASU leads Arizona 4-3 headed to the bottom of the 6th.

    293. jason says:

      So Jason admits he can’t find any posts.”

      One more lie, so many already. What I really said is there are hundreds of posts that show you support woke culture.

      I will add it to:

      jason told me to stop watching woke sports.
      jason told me to stop drinking soda
      jason told me to stop going to Mass
      jason attacked me for watching sports, drinking soda and going to Mass
      jason admitted I don’t support woke culture
      jason said I must be a communist or Antifa member if I go to Mass.
      jason is anti-Catholic

      all lies, but not limited to these, there are many others.

    294. jason says:

      Jason still makes the false assumption that I watch sports to see woke messages.”

      Another lie. Never said that either.

      One thing about Bitter, when he lies he can keep them coming, consistent.

    295. jason says:

      I said you are comfortable watching woke messages, you attack and mock anybody who finds fault with them, and pretend that you don’t see them with BS statements like “I don’t see woke messages because the Eagles don’t score”.

    296. Bitterlaw says:

      If there are hundreds of posts that “show” I support woke culture, why can’t you post one? It’s because there are no posts so you twist and translate and interpret to make your argument without actual evidence.

    297. jason says:

      I plan on running specifically to oppose Democrats and this woke bs.”

      Why not start practicing then and oppose it here at HHR then?

      Why are you defending woke politicians like Nikki Haley and Pat Toomey? Why are you mocking everyone who opposes woke culture? Why won’t you acknowledge that woke culture is a serious threat to our way of life and the history and principles that have made our country great?

      Why are you so afraid to take a stand on anything and as wes said feel compelled to jump on every bandwagon that comes by?

    298. Bitterlaw says:

      So now the goalposts move from I support woke messages to I am comfortable with woke messages. Maybe by 2027 Jason will accept that I ignore woke messages and have no impact.

    299. jason says:

      If there are hundreds of posts that “show” I support woke culture, why can’t you post one?”

      Every post where you attack and mock anyone opposed to woke culture is a post that show you support it.

      But the hypocrisy is astounding, have you found any posts where I said you shouldn’t go to Mass. Drink coke? Watch woke sports?

      No, because there aren’t any. Yet you repeat this lie over and over.

    300. jason says:

      So now the goalposts move from I support woke messages”

      I said you accept them and are comfortable with them.

      I said you support woke culture, which doesn’t mean you support every message.

      Bitter to say that must mean I admit he doesn’t support woke culture in 3, 2, 1….

    301. Bitterlaw says:

      Feeling insecure? You need my applause? You already have lisab pretending to do that.

      I have consistently opposed Democrats by running for office. Have I made any pro-Democrat posts since 2094? No.

      You clearly think that you are a great warrior fighting and winning battles with your remote control. I don’t. I agree that cancel culture is a serious threat. I hate the attack on our history. The every white person is evil message does a great disservice to history. Some were evil. Some did evil things and did not think it was evil. Most were just trying to get by.

    302. Bitterlaw says:

      307 is a long way to say Jason is now grasping at “ interpretations” since he can’t find posts. So now he admits I don’t support every message. Maybe it will be earlier than 2027. Baby steps.

    303. jason says:

      Whatever. You say you will do something in your campaign that you actually don’t do here, which is to oppose woke culture.

      I have my doubts.

    304. jason says:

      So now he admits I don’t support every message”

      “Now”? I never said you supported every message.

      I said I didn’t think you were a communist or an member of Antifa.

      If that brings you great solace, fine.

    305. jason says:

      since he can’t find posts.”

      Lie.

      But speaking of lies, have you found a post yet where I told you not to go to Mass?

    306. Bitterlaw says:

      Why do all of your posts about the Pope have to mention me? There is no reason to do it other than to tie me to his political views. I have tried to educate you on the structure of the Church and how parishioners have no power or influence over electing or retaining a Pope but you continue.

    307. jason says:

      You clearly think that you are a great warrior fighting and winning battles with your remote control?

      I do? News to me.

      But whatever. Last I heard you were attacking me for giving up involvement in politics.

      Hard to keep track.

    308. Bitterlaw says:

      You want me to throw treats to you like lisab. She is mocking you with every post by just retyping what you say.

    309. Bitterlaw says:

      You are comfortable with Democrats running the country. If you were not, you would still be a voter.

    310. Bitterlaw says:

      My last mockery was based on you being old. Not as old as Walt, of course. Getting close to wearing white shoes and eating dinner at 4:30 like Gordon, though.

    311. jason says:

      There is no reason to do it other than to tie me to his political views”

      Lie.

      The Pope is hard core Marxist. I never said you were a Marxist, so I never tied you to his political views.

      What I said was your theory that the Pope is only influential in Church matters and that his anti-Capitalist and war on wealth rhetoric doesn’t matter is naive and self destructing. I said your failure to realize the communist Pope (and denial that he is a Communist) is being used by people who hate the Catholic Church for their own agenda is sticking your head in sand.

      You have entangled yourself in so many lies you can’t even tell where one starts and the other one ends anymore.

    312. jason says:

      You are comfortable with Democrats running the country”

      If you are comfortable with woke culture and you think everything that is happening is normal, the Dems are the least of your worries.

    313. jason says:

      You want me to throw treats to you like lisab.”

      I need to thank her, didn’t notice.

    316. Bitterlaw says:

      Please find one post where I said everything is normal or GFY. I said it was not normal. In fact, when I typed things were not normal, you said it meant I thought things were normal.

      I never said the Pope is only influential in Church matters. What I said is that I disagree with his political statements but that only his statements on matters of faith matter to me as a Catholic.

      You have created a caricature of me that bears no resemblance to me so you can have somebody to fight with. I even posted my phone number if you wanted to have a real discussion. I’m not afraid of anybody except spiders. Ask MD, Walt, WV Ali who I really am.

    317. jason says:

      You have created a caricature of me”

      Seems like a lot of other people agree on the “caricature”.

      Plus, I have no interest in fighting with you when there are so many better targets.

      You should know by now that if you attack me you should expect a response.

      At the end of the day, I think you are weak and spineless when it comes to woke culture. I think you are making a mistake in minimizing its detrimental effect and its consequences. I think you are too worried about what others think of your views.

      Your counter argument is that you don’t agree with woke beliefs. But I already conceded that is not my point. I think we are ideologically similar. Despite your straw arguments, acceptance of woke culture doesn’t mean you accept every woke belief.

      I would say the same on the phone as I do here.

      You don’t have to agree. I don’t agree with your depiction of me as an anti-Catholic bigot.

      There is no free lunch here.

    318. Bitterlaw says:

      WHATS I SAID – I agree that cancel culture is a serious threat. I hate the attack on our history. The every white person is evil message does a great disservice to history. Some were evil. Some did evil things and did not think it was evil. Most were just trying to get by.

      HOW JASON INTERPETS AND TWISTS WHAT I SAID –

      At the end of the day, I think you are weak and spineless when it comes to woke culture. I think you are making a mistake in minimizing its detrimental effect and its consequences. I think you are too worried about what others think of your views.

    319. Bitterlaw says:

      I think you are too worried about what others think of your views.

      If it wasn’t for coaching, I would almost be a hermit. Where and to whom should I be expressing my views? You are the one hidden from those who are different from you. Other than Tom Wolf, has there been a Democrat in York since FDR died?

    320. Bitterlaw says:

      I think we are ideologically similar but I will blame you relentlessly for a cancel culture I admit you don’t believe in.

      Fixed it.

    321. Wes says:

      Ah, the never-ending Bitter-Jason debate over cancel culture. Thousands of posts going nowhere.

      OMG!

      I did not know Bitter was afraid of squirrels.

      Bitter has Sciurophobia, a fear of squirrels. Wow!

      Don’t ever go to the UC Berkeley campus because the squirrels are very assertive. They are so used to students feeding them they will follow you or crowd around you expecting to be fed.

      I was walking on a path one year and like 5 squirrels ran to me and encircled me hoping to be fed. They kept following me and circling me. It was quite funny.

      I guess Bitter would have started screaming in his high pitched Mariah Carey voice and fainted since he fears squirrels but I thought it was interesting how they circled around me.

      They were like:

      Give me some nuts Bish or we’ll f*ck you up.

    328. Tgca says:

      327

      Bitter would otherwise be a hermit? Really?

      So you don’t want to go out of the house?

      Is it because your fear of squirrels?

      Sciurophobia is real! But it is treatable with a good therapist.

      Here in Amish country, we have more than squirrels coming to bird feeders.

      Bears like them too. And much harder to catapult.

      Since PA issues 400k bear hunting licenses a year but less than 1% of bear hunters actually kill a bear, I came up with a business plan.

      I would fill up the yard with bird feeders and even some honey pots, and charge for hunters to shoot the bears on my property.

      Both my wife and Lupita vetoed my brilliant plan.

    333. jason says:

      Yeah, I know bear baiting is illegal.

      But I am just feeding the squirrels, I don’t have a bear hunting license and I am not shooting bears.

      I am just renting my property to hunters.

      Thankfully, if there is a problem I know a good lawyer in Philly with time on his hands.

      America’s sexually transmitted disease rates have hit a record high for the sixth straight year, with CDC researchers finding a 30 per cent increase in STDs from 2015 to 2019.


      According to the latest data, 2.5 million Americans had either chlamydia, gonorrhea or syphilis infections in 2019, with chlamydia cases rising 61 per cent and gonorrhea cases spiking 42 per cent among young people aged 15 to 24.

      The research shows that gay and bisexual men account for nearly half of the primary and secondary syphilis infections while syphilis infections among newborn babies also quadrupled between 2015 and 2019.

      Black people had STD rates between five to eight times higher than white people while amongst Hispanics the figure was double that of white people.

      “Less than 20 years ago, gonorrhea rates in the U.S. were at historic lows, syphilis was close to elimination, and advances in chlamydia diagnostics made it easier to detect infections,” said researcher Dr. Raul Romaguera, highlighting the grim rise in STD infections over the last two decades.

      In addition, a recent CDC study found that more than four out of 10 “women” who identify as transgender and live in big cities have contracted HIV.

      Two thirds of black “women” who identify as transgender and over a third of Hispanic transgenders also have HIV.

      The media and the culture’s relentless promotion of degenerate promiscuity – both for straight and gay people – and the rise of the LGBT movement obviously has nothing whatsoever to do with any of this.

When I do, I will condemn the idea of reparations as absurd and insulting to generations of black Americans who have worked every day to overcome the effects of slavery and prejudice. Taking money from people who committed no crime to pay descendants of the actual victims of slavery who are long gone can never be justified.

      Bitter opposes reparations.

    359. Phil says:

      That makes you a racist in the eyes of suburban Philly women voters, bitter. They will also call you a meanie. Show a little compassion, will ya?

    360. Phil says:

      Don’t tell, bitter, but we have gay people in Texas that are actually conservatives. My neighbor for example.

      You’ll be a great congressman.

    361. Bitterlaw says:

      Anybody who reads 365 knows you oppose thinking.

      Sheeple – I will know by Labor Day. I just started a new job. Once I have established myself, I will discuss it with my bosses. They may not want me campaigning on their payroll when I should be billing. If they say close your job or running for office it will be difficult. Ironically, my last boss would not care. I am not self-employed
      and my daughter starts college in August. On the bright side, if my dad dies and we can sell the house quickly, I could walk away from the job and run. If people want to condemn my honest answer, do it. Of course, they never ran for anything themselves.

    362. Bitterlaw says:

      Phil posts:

      My moms are fighting. Hilarious. Ah, life in the suburbs. Yep. Normal.

      But then he posts:

      Don’t tell, bitter, but we have gay people in Texas that are actually conservatives. My neighbor for example.

      So why does Phil claim that lesbians are not normal and only live in the suburbs by derisively posting “Ah, life in the suburbs. Yep. Normal.?” Since he always posts “normal” when he considers things abnormal, he is at war with himself.

    363. Phil says:

      Statistics prove lesbians aren’t the norm, bitter. That’s just a fact. No war here.

    364. jason says:

      So why does Phil claim that lesbians are not normal ”

      He did not say that. He was remarking on the situation where the mayor of Chicago is getting beat up and having the police called and having an affair in a hotel paid by the city and allegedly covering up a weapons charge for the boyfriend of her lover.

      But don’t worry, both Phil and I understand you think this is normal.

    365. Phil says:

      ….nor was I making a judgement on lesbians good or bad just to get that out of the way….since I’m sure that’s where bitter was heading.

    366. jason says:

      Calling Phil racist for saying the situation in Chicago is not normal or that lesbians are not the norm is typical woke BS.

      He is calling you racist because that is the woke thing to do.

      Jason is truly at war with himself. When I posted that things were not normal in response to the “Normal” posts, I was accused of really thinking they were normal. When I stopped posting they were abnormal, I was accused of thinking they were normal.

    372. jason says:

      But you see how this works.

      Why does Bitter attack you for saying this is not normal?

      Because somehow to say that means you must be anti-gay.

      Because that is what the MSM and the woke culture would say. The story here is not Chicago story, it is that Phil is racist.

      Now he will post 100 posts asking for examples on where he is woke.

    373. Bitterlaw says:

      Aside from a murder-suicide on my street, we don’t have a lot of screaming domestic arguments that lead to police responding.

    374. jason says:

      When I posted that things were not normal in response to the “Normal” posts,”

      Zzzz….

      You have been attacking all the “normal” posts non-stop since they started, because you are offended by them.

      Stop lying.

    375. jason says:

      Note that Bitter did not say one word about what happened in Chicago.

      But he already has half a dozen posts attacking anybody that doesn’t think that is normal.

      Draw you own conclusions.

    376. Bitterlaw says:

      You have been attacking all the “normal” posts non-stop since they started, because you are offended by them.

      Stop lying.

      You are a sad little man. I NEVER said any of those things was normal. Look up the definition of never. Please. I am not offended by them. We al know that they are not “normal.” They are just becoming the “Never Trump” of 2021. And we all know how you abdonned that, too.

    377. jason says:

      Normal.

    378. Bitterlaw says:

      My moms are fighting. Hilarious. Ah, life in the suburbs. Yep. Normal.

      Calling Phil racist for saying the situation in Chicago is not normal or that lesbians are not the norm is typical woke BS.

      BUT WHY DID PHIL REFER TO THE SUBURBS WHEN IT IS AN ISSUE IN CHICAGO?

    379. Bitterlaw says:

      386 in nor normal.

      Spin that.

    380. Bitterlaw says:

      Not normal. Why does autocorrect make nor not?

    381. Bitterlaw says:

      I think there were 40,000 Texas Rangers fans supporting MLB at yesterday’s game. That’s a lot of free passes Phil will have to give out today.

    382. jason says:

      I NEVER said any of those things was normal.”

      Zzzzzzz….

      You just attack anybody that implies they are not formal.

      You ignore the whole gist of Chicago story to attack Phil as a racist for saying it is not normal.

      Talk about “sad”.

    383. Bitterlaw says:

      I never called Phil a racist. I have no idea what the lesbians look like and don’t feel like looking it up.

    384. Phil says:

      I don’t even know where the Doctor Pepper Museum is located, but if bitter says Texans think it’s a biggie, ok then. I’m familiar with other attractions like the Alamo, NASA etc.but whatever.

    385. jason says:

      hat’s a lot of free passes Phil will have to give out today.”

      Phil, you are being mocked for opposing woke culture.

      But remember, Bitter does not support woke culture.

    386. Bitterlaw says:

      Provide the exact post where I said Phil was a racist over this story. Exact post and not your translation or interpretation or spin.

    387. jason says:

      Phil, Bitter knows a lot about Texas but never went there.

    388. Bitterlaw says:

      Phil, you are being mocked for opposing woke culture.

      No. He is being mocked for condemning me for being woke by watching a few innings of a game on TV but said nothing about 40,000 fans going to games in person and directly supporting MLB.

    389. Phil says:

      Wokers do what wokers are going to do, Jason. We all know the playbook. It’s predictable and it’s every day.

    390. jason says:

      Provide the exact post where I said Phil was a racist over this story.”

      Sure.

      “So why does Phil claim that lesbians are not normal ”

      Phil never actually said that, but the only reason you did was to claim he was racist.

    391. Bitterlaw says:

      The Alamo? Nice story of a loss. Independence Hall? Declaration of Independence and Constitution. Philadelphia wins this round.

    392. jason says:

      He is being mocked for condemning me for being woke by watching a few innings of a game on TV”

      Phil, he only watches a “few innings”.

      We already know he doesn’t watch the opposing teams score TDs because he never saw any of the woke messages in the end zone and the Eagles don’t score.

    393. Phil says:

      No, bitter. Your wokeness is clear, and it’s illustrated by a helluva lot more than “watching a few innings on tv”…..but you know that.

    394. Bitterlaw says:

      Phil never actually said that, but the only reason you did was to claim he was racist.

      So you can’t prove I said he was a racist. I also don’t know the race of the lesbians.

    395. Bitterlaw says:

      he never saw any of the woke messages in the end zone and the Eagles don’t score.

      That was meant as a joke but jason, who speaks 20 languages, did not get it.

    396. jason says:

      Poor Bitter.

      Nobody told him yet that woke culture and cancel culture are a direct attack on our history and the Constitution.

    397. jason says:

      That was meant as a joke”

      Heh, I have written about it dozens of times and it is the first time you claim it is a “joke”.

      Sorry, as we say in Texas, that dog won’t hunt.

    398. jason says:

      So you can’t prove I said he was a racist.”

      Right, the point about race of a lesbian is well taken.

      I should have said you ignore the gist of the story so you could call him homophobic.

      I stand corrected.

    399. jason says:

      Phil, we have to circle back on that one, my mistake. You are not racist, according to Bitter you are homophobic.

      “Phil, if you don’t think this is normal, you must be HOMOPHOBIC.

      This is the woke world we live in.”

    400. Phil says:

      ….and Valley Forge was a win.

      Got it.

    401. Bitterlaw says:

      Because I did not know you would repeat it dozens of times. Just like Tgca’s idiotic metrosexual posts and yesterday’s squirrel posts.

    402. jason says:

      Bitter and Pat All Gun Owners are Criminals hardest hit.

      “SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The man accused of going on a shooting rampage at a Southern California business, killing four people, should not have been allowed to buy or own guns because of a California law that prohibits people from purchasing weapons for 10 years after being convicted of a crime.”

      The article also has this “gem”:

      “Even with all the stopgaps in a “very, very good system,” Lindley said, people still acquire guns illegally.

      “Unfortunately, where you have strict gun laws, there will always be a market for illegal firearms,” Lindley said. “Because people want to get them one way or another.”

    403. Phil says:

      Let me help you out, bitter. Why don’t I just go ahead and admit that I must be racist AND homophobic…..and sexist, don’t forget that one. Oh yeah, and xenophobic for sure since I’m all in on border security. Have we covered it all, bitter? Feel free to throw in a few more from your perch on the mountain top.

    404. Bitterlaw says:

      I also never said Phil is homophobic. I questioned why he said the fighting lesbians were typical of “life in the suburbs?” Turns out Phil thinks Chicago is a suburb.

    405. jason says:

      Tgca will love this.

      Detectives were still working on tracing the Glock semi-automatic handgun and ammunition, she said.”

      Semi-automatic handgun.

      You can’t make this sh-t up.

    406. Phil says:

      Well, got to go to the gym. Damn, I hope I don’t run into any gays there…or blacks..or Hispanics….already resigned to the fact that there will be women there.

    407. jason says:

      I also never said Phil is homophobic”

      Sure you did.

      “So why does Phil claim that lesbians are not normal”

      Even if he did not say that.

    408. jason says:

      Well, got to go to the gym. Damn, I hope I don’t run into any gays there…or blacks..or Hispanics….already resigned to the fact that there will be women there.”

      Phil, Bitter has already determined you are racist, xenophobic, misogynistic…

      So don’t drive to the gym or he will say you are killing the planet.

    409. Bitterlaw says:

      Zzzzzzzzz . Nobody has been more supportive of strict border security than me, Phil. I don’t think you are a racist or any other “ist” or “phobe.” You hate where I live and I have no interest in living where you do. It’s better for both of us that way.

    410. Phil says:

      Lol

      I don’t think Mayor Lightfoot lives in inner Chicago, bitter. After all, she’s one of the elites. Pretty sure she’s not living where the bullets are flying. Gated suburban neighborhood.

      Now, I really have to go.

    411. Bitterlaw says:

      The category is Places Bitter Won’t Go-
      What are gyms and Texas?

    412. Bitterlaw says:

      So you did not know where she lived but still made your post. Got it.

    413. CG says:

      The Mayor of Chicago does not live in the suburbs. That’s goofy.

      Lightfoot has for many years live in a neighborhood on the Near Northwest Side. No, it is not a place that has continual violence ,but relatively few parts of Chicago do. Of course, it is a horrible situation in the places of the City that have gang warfare.

      What amazes me is that people here see some international tabloid story about lesbian domestic violence and a rumored resignation and seem to believe it is true. I very much doubt it is true. If the Chicago PD were involved in a domestic disturbance involving the Mayor, it would have already leaked somewhere beyond some international tabloid.

    414. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      #422
      Chicago is a lost cause with or without Lightfoot in charge.
      The most prestigious individual in the City is Jesse Smollett. Has he been jailed yet?

    415. CG says:

      You struggle with facts.

      Smollett does not live in Chicago and has not returned besides for court dates. His case is pending and he should be held responsible.

      In regards to Lightfoot, there are a lot of things to disapprove of, but the other options would likely be far worse. It is the far-left that is calling on her to resign for being too “pro-police” etc.

      The only point I wished to make was that this story that appeared online about her sounded ridiculous. People should be more careful consumers of “news.” I did not believe *every* negative story I heard about Donald Trump for instance.

      There are a lot of investigative reporters in Chicago though whom I am sure look into every “rumor”, so if there is some big lesbian soap opera involving a city-paid Elmhurst tryst, it will go mainstream, if there is anything to it. Lightfoot went online today to blast unsubstantiated rumors. Clearly, she is not resigning today.

    416. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      What are your thoughts about something much more important? Please read the below article and comment. Thanks.(Do you believe that Bibi will be able to form a governable coalition in Israel? If not, who could?)

      https://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/304537

      P.S.- The Smollett crime occurred in a “nice” Chicago neighborhood as you define it in #422. Because Smollett does not currently reside in Chicago is a red herring since he felt confident doing his dirty deed in the Windy City.

    417. CG says:

      Smollett has been charged and will face trial. HE lives in California and his acting career is basically over. This is after the charges were dropped under mysterious circumstances the first time. I took a D primary ballot just to vote against the States’ Attorney who dropped the charges.

      I am not an expert on Israeli politics. The system there (and all places with parliamentary governments) can be very complicated. There had been several elections and I had wanted the Benny Gant to become Prime Minister, as term limits are a good thing across the board. He is certainly not a leftist. Israel is of course right to be extremely wary of Iran.

    418. CG says:

      Not sure why HE had both letters capitalized in my post. I am sure there will be conspiracy theories about that too….

      Your reply is evasive. Will you condemn the Biden Administration if the article is correct? That’s the issue.

      Also, can you post a link to Lightfoot’s rumor denial statement? Has her wife responded?

    420. CG says:

      The damage was already done when Obama put the Iran deal into place. Toothpaste cannot be put back into a tube. Of course Biden supported it. I don’t know what else I am supposed to say.

      I “condemn” the Biden Administration for a whole lot of things. After all, I am a conservative. The Afghanistan policy is chief among the things I disapprove of. Of course, those who have politically worshiped Donald Trump have no room to say anything on that.

      The best thing Biden has going for him of course across the board is that he is not Trump. That is why his approval ratings are higher in comparison.

    422. Phil says:

      I see Biden slipped up and referred to the border as a “crisis”

      Of course, he had to add that it was Trump’s doing.

      Sorry, Joe. Continue to lie all you want, but outside of your hard core base, no one, and I mean no one is buying that one.

    424. Bitterlaw says:

      Sheeple – It is insane to trust the government of Iran. The government of Israel is not insane and will not commit suicide by deferring to the US and its misguided trust of Iran through Biden’s incompetence.

      I don’t know if Bibi can form a government. He seems to have those who love him and those who hate him and it is usually a fight for him to get enough support in a coalition. I just hope that sanity prevails and Israel maintains a government that will fight to the last for its survival.

      Ok. I’m no Expert on lesbians like LisaB is but we in the gay community often laugh at lesbians because we know, like the gay men that get overly dramatic, lesbians are known for getting all bent out of shape and go full apechit at times, their form of drama.

      As one example, when I was 18, I worked at a place once where this bulldyke, what we referred to the masculine lesbians back in the day as a term of endearment, came into a store threatening another lesbian for messing with her girlfriend. She was yelling and cursing up a storm and security had to come to escort her out and even then she was still going off…and this was way before it was “NORMAL” for gays to be out but she did not give a chit.

      Lesbians tend to keep to themselves and rarely mingle with gay men but we know they can be quite aggressive when they wish. In another example, I remember a lesbian coming to work once with a black eye because she got into it with her girlfriend.

      I’ve seen other examples too in public, especially during gay pride celebrations where you would see lesbians being pulled apart from one another before fists starting flying.

      So there is some truth to the stereotype that lesbians can get very physical with one another, and not in a good way either, at times when they’re very upset just like gay men, metrosexuals, and Bitter can be overly dramatic at times.

      It’s just a fact of life.

      Oh, but wait. He used to be a cop? Hey, maybe he can be of some use after all. A murderous ex cop. Look for the Washington Post to go with that angle. If only he had been white. No problem. Just leave that part out…or better yet, MSM has coined the term white Hispanic. Maybe the can refer to this guy as a white Afro. Yeah, perfect!

      revolvers can fire more than once and are not semi-automatic

    444. Tgca says:

      Whether a revolver or semi, handguns are meant to protect oneself, their loved ones, or their property by inflicting serious injury or death in a dire situation.

      Revolvers are simple to load and use. Semi can be a bit more complicated to learn to use but once loaded and cocked it is faster and generally holds more ammunition and very easy to reload with another magazine.

      If I were in a fight for my life, I’d take my chances with a semi over a revolver any day.

      Either way, someone trained to use a revolver or semi should have ample opportunity to protect themselves within a few seconds of notice.

      Surprising someone always takes the advantage away because they need a few seconds to react. But I guarantee if someone was kicking in my door, I would only need less than 3 seconds to ready my semi for a string of bullets from either my 10 clip or 17 clip.

      It’s stoopid to attack someone pointing a 10 or 17 mag loaded semi at you because it’s easy to unload a clip in a few seconds and one have to be the worst shot in the world not to strike the attacker at least once in those few seconds.

    445. Phil says:

      For the first few years of our marriage we just relied on my wife’s 38 revolver for protection. We quickly upgraded our arsenal with two more pistols (semi automatic of course). Like the option of emptying one clip and then popping in another to be assured that the intruder is Swiss cheese. Also purchased an AR 15 in August in honor of Beto’s big mouth.

    446. Tgca says:

      Phil

      I have 3 semis.

      1 small Ruger 6 shooter with 2 clips holding 6 rounds each
      1 large Ruger SR9 with 3 clips, two 10 and one 17 clips
      1 medium S&W with 2 clips holding 10 rounds each

      That’s 69 rounds ready within seconds I can discharge.

      I feel safe in my home.

    447. Phil says:

      You should, Tgca. I also own two S & W’s with multiple ten round clips.

      My son, in addition to his purchased assortment of pistols and rifles has built three AR-15s. I asked him why he did that. He said for two reasons. No serial numbers so they can never be confiscated and just because he can. He loves his Second Amendment plus he likes it that it pisses off the left that he can and does own multiple firearms.

      In reference to Trump he said:
      To me, humility shows an understanding of self. It shows a belief in a higher power that is necessary to be an effective leader. And we were short of humility.”

      Clearly, GWB was humbled by the hundreds of thousands that died in Iraq while looking for non-existent WMDs so he could prove to Papa “Groper” Bush he was his daddy’s boy.

      Salena Zito: Trump didn’t form a populist coalition. He was the result of one.

      “By 2016, the voters who were to become Trump’s base already knew who they were. Trump was the only one of 17 Republicans and five Democrats who stood out to this group of politically homeless voters. He knew how to tap the aspirations they were looking for from a presidential candidate.

      Second, many people who have left their support for Trump visible to others have not left those flags or signs up because they think the election was stolen. It’s not a testament to their undying support for one man; they’ve left them up because it is their only way to show the political class that they are not going away. . . . Cultural curators in the media, corporations, and the so-called social justice warriors just can’t dislodge themselves from their narrow idea that if you voted for Trump or any other Republican, you are part of this thing that needs to become extinct. These voters are telling you through their signs that that is not going to happen.”

      The truth is that I was down on the NFL even before all the woke st-ff. It was not enough for me to call it quits, but I am on record here as being against a lot of the rule changes and protocols that have pussified the game and is slowly transforming it from a contact sport to some version of touch football. These guys make millions and they want football to be risk and injury free? The want to play a contact sport with no hard hits and no concussions? Getting to the QB is an essential part of the game, “protecting” him so it is easier for him to complete the play goes against the purpose of the defense, which is to interrupt the play and prevent it from evolving.

      Wokiness in football does not only have to be political. The changes in the game are woke BS too.

      In my view, Trump only survived 4 years because he took no attack lying down, and his tweet war with the MSM was absolutely necessary.

      I don’t agree with Phil about the petty, useless fights part. I think Trump’s strategy to respond to all attacks was the right thing to do even if I did not always agree with the content.

      The results speak for themselves, Jason. Trump lost. He would have been a viable candidate had he known how to focus his attacks rather looking petty by uplifting every attack on him by responding. That was too much to ask though, and Trump lost.

      Trump himself realized this late in the game when he changed tactics in the second debate with Biden. By then it was too late.

      Maybe, but in my view Trump would have lost by a lot more had he not fought back against the MSM with the one means he had available, tweets. Had he let them define the narrative unchallenged, I don’t think he would even have completed his term.

      I think he lost for other reasons and because of election fraud in AZ, GA, PA, WI and MI (although the margin in MI could be outside the MOF).

    502. Wes says:

      I don’t buy the fraud argument.

      I live in a state where Dems had all the advantages–high black and urban turnout, no-excuse absentee voting, lengthy early voting, and complete control of the electoral process–they had in PA, WI, and MI but still lost.

      That tells me Trump spent four years beclowning himself and consequently obscuring his accomplishments as President and consequently lost.

      If Dems had truly stolen the election, then quite obviously Trump and Tillis would have lost here since Dems control of both the NCSBE and the NCSC. That they failed to win here is a clear counterargument to the idea that Trump lost because of widespread fraud.

      Losing is still losing. I think Trump would have gained votes, rather than lost them, had he had more self-control when it came to his attacks. His lack of anything resembling discretion was the biggest criticism I heard about him both from people who ultimately voted for him and from people who voted for Biden or someone else.

    503. jason says:

      That was good for what, 90 years before woke football and before ridiculous little tents on the sidelines?

      Oh, now the “concussion technology” is better? Good, build better helmets and protective equipment. Have better treatment for injuries. Have baseline cognitive tests for each player and test them periodically against them for any variance and make them available to the player so they can decide if they want to continue or not.

      But don’t make it a game of woke pussies.

    504. jason says:

      I live in a state where Dems had all the advantages”

      The one difference is that NC counted almost all the votes on election night. Very little change after that.

      And I think that is a big difference.

    505. Tgca says:

      511

      I think Trump lost because of two main reasons.

      1st and foremost, coordinated efforts by Big Tech and MSM to draw an extremely unflattering and corrupt and often false narrative of him that heightened during election season while playing down Biden’s issues or propping him up with blatantly false narratives. No president has ever endured this level of attack. It was 24/7. The recent CNN exposure by Project Veritas proves this. As Newsweek journalist Evan Thomas once said back in the 90s I believe, (paraphrasing) news can altar the outcome of support by up to 15%.

      2nd, as Jadon states, there was corruption in selected states with voting anomalies that defy statistical practicality and expected probabilities with almost every norm changed, none of which were reviewed in courts. The only issues the courts ruled on was timing, standing or issues the courts refused to take up. The data analysis required to prove fraud was never allowed or litigated or expert witnesses were not allowed in any of the critical legal challenges filed. Had the outcome in these select corrupt areas swung the votes less than 100,000 the other way, Trump would have been re-elected easily. From a mathematical trend, this seems very speculative that there was no fraud.

      My view is that with the change in technology and how news can be controlled by a few to billions of people, this is now a new norm to expect in future elections.

      I doubt any GOP can ever win the presidency again without strategically fighting Big Tech and MSM to disarm their arsenal of communication to distort and mass communicate false narratives.

    506. NYCmike says:

      “The one difference is that NC counted almost all the votes on election night. Very little change after that.”

      -The urban centers also aren’t as large of a percentage like in those other states. I would also think that their political systems are not as one-sided as the ones mentioned, as their population growth has been in the more recent past.

    507. jason says:

      I think Trump would have gained votes, rather than lost them, had he had more self-control when it came to his attacks”

      I have the opposite view. I think Trump would have lost more votes than gained if he had let the MSM have the only narrative.

      In fact, I doubt he would have finished his term.

      I think he lost the election because of fraud. You think it is because of tweets.

      A strong majority of Rs and even a plurality of indies, think that fraud was a factor.

      I agree with them.

    508. Wes says:

      NC spent two weeks counting the votes before certifying winners in the presidential and Senate races, Jason. The Chief Justice race wasn’t resolved till around Thanksgiving. All went to the GOP.

      If Dems were going to steal the elections, they had plenty of chances to do so. Don’t tell me with outright control of the Senate and a $170 million price tag on their investment in the Senate seat, they just gave up after weeks of counting votes either. If there were genuine widespread fraud capable of changing the outcome of the National presidential race last year, Dems absolutely would have done the same thing here.

      You’re a know-nothing fraud who has to conveniently ignore key parts of posts to make your points, Jason.

      In the two weeks it took to complete the vote counting for both the presidential and senatorial races in this state, Dems couldn’t find the votes necessary to give either to the Dems despite having a 3-2 majority on the NCSBE and a 6-1 majority on the NCSC.

      This is despite their pouring nine figures into the state and getting a personal guarantee from Roy Cooper to deliver the state for Biden and Cunningham.

      You’re right though. Dems spent over $200 million on this state and had every systemic advantage they had in the closely divided states they won and then some.

      This was the only one not decided by fraud of course.

      As a father of 4, Jadon has mastered the ability to express himself so simply. Kudos to him.

    524. Wes says:

      To recap, Jason’s argument is that Dems spent nine figures in this state to win the presidential and senatorial races. They had absolute control over the electoral process here. They had all the Trump bete noires: extended early voting, lax VBM laws, large urban and suburban areas with high anti-Trump turnout. They even had a relatively popular Governor running for reelection who promised to help Biden and Cunningham win.

      Somehow, despite all those advantages, they couldn’t get or manufacture enough votes to win. They managed to steal elections in states where they spent far less money and had far less control over the electoral processes.

      Makes perfect sense to me.

      Well, it would if I weren’t wedded to the inane idea that every election that goes the opposite of how I want it must be fraudulently decided.

      I agree with NYC (damm!) that it would be a lot easier to steal 12k votes in places like the Atlanta counties with huge Dem majorities and little supervision than 100kk votes in NC, where the partisan disparities are not so pronounced even in Dem majority counties.

      I agree that the Dems had some of the same advantages in NC, but they didn’t have the same close election. Maybe if Trump or Tillis had onnly won by 10k votes each, it would have been a different story.

    529. Tgca says:

      Remember, the Dems targeted certain areas for fraud because they knew exactly where they needed to rack up votes. That’s why you did not see similar late night results for all Dem districts in states they knew they would win.

      2. Local gubbermints can be sued for damages if they fail to try and stop a riot by telling law enforcement to stand down.

      3. Makes a 2nd degree felony when the riot has more than 25 participants, causes great bodily harm or more than $5,000 in property damage, uses or threatens to use a deadly weapon, or blocks roadways by force or threat of force.

      4. There are penalties for people who “commandeer highways” and topple monuments.

      To be fair, my good friend Wes does have some valid points too but I do feel, and as an EXPERT on all matters except all matters gay to which I defer to LisaB as the Expert, that the validation is all about “degree.”

      The degree of voters turned off by Trump, mostly metrosexual suburban voters, particularly those women who did not like his tweeting, were most likely offset by those that rallied to him for sticking it to the MSM. Many of these new voters sat out for years until Trump came along.

      The degree of voter fraud in selected Dem areas was significant enough to offset an otherwise probable Trump win in those related states.

      I think if a true detailed analysis was done of the voting anomalies, they would find the probability of Biden wins was astronomically improbable, especially how they defied every expected trend like winning FL and OH comfortably but losing in GA and AZ.

      But remember, the 80+ legal cases brought throughout the country in voter fraud were denied or lost based on timing, standing, and inability to address state and US constitutional issues. Not one of these cases ever went to trial to cross examine data and subject expert witnesses to testimony on fraud, as that would have taken months.

      I always thought Trump was up against a clock and could not overcome that timing but I still think these cases should proceed to settle the issue once and for all to provide confidence in voter integrity…we will see.

    537. Wes says:

      Jason and his ever moving goalposts.

      First, Dems didn’t have time to steal North Carolina because most of the vote came on Election Day. Only, votes were still coming in almost two weeks later with no calls in the major races till then.

      Then the margin was too big for Biden and Cunningham and Biden to catch Trump and Tillis. Only this negates the argument that states with lax VBM and long early voting periods were victims of fraud because Dems had both here yet failed to find enough votes to secure a victory.

      That’s why I apply Occam’s Razor to the 2020 elections. Trump was unpopular and did little to ingratiate himself with the American people during his time in Washington. His lack of self-control combined with routinely hostile media doomed him to a loss against a doddering old fool.

    538. Wes says:

      Boston and Massachusetts = idiots.

    539. Tgca says:

      Wes

      You ignorant slut!

      I don’t think the Dems needed NC as much as they needed other states. I am not saying they didn’t need to still be competitive nationally.

      I think they needed a Plan B and that plan played out in the wee hours of the AM in states where they knew they could better get away with fraud and just say they took back what was a Trump anomaly win in 2016 that always belonged to Dems.

      Why go for fraud in NC when you get more bang for your buck out of Philly, Detroit, and Milwaukee as examples.

      It would look odd if Trump won MI, WI, and PA but lost NC?

      Come on man!

    540. NYCmike says:

      Oddly enough, Tg, none of this took place in the most liberal parts of NC.

    542. NYCmike says:

      “Strange, don’t you think?”

      -Why would it be strange?

      If the proper laws and procedures are in place, it’s not strange at all.

    543. Tgca says:

      552

      Btw, I don’t think this was a widely coordinated effort across the country. I think this was local theft at varying state levels. It would be stoopid if the Dems tried to commit fraud across many states in a coordinated fashion with many folks in the loop because chances are it would come out sooner or later as folks like to talk and brag about their accomplishment. Think CNN Charlie Chester.

    544. Wes says:

      So, spending almost a quarter billion dollars here was just a vanity project, Tg?

      They weren’t actually trying to beat Tillis and Trump in NC?

    545. Tgca says:

      557

      No. I explained that already. Sit back and learn grasshopper.

      It was not a given they would win in NC, more of a stretch there. …and I doubt the folks in Philly and Detroit were coordinating with those in NC.

      Fraud is usually a local issue and not coordinated across states but certain folks that commit fraud in the biggest and most corrupt cities know how much they can get away with it.

      Criminal behavior often has similar characteristics in many areas but the degree of it may vary. We see this with gang activity.

      We just saw fraud in your 2nd fav state last year as an example. There was major voter fraud in city elections in NJ that resulted in a court ordered invalidated election even though it was probably not coordinated at the state level.

      It’s like what we see with a lot of this Antifa rioting and violence. It’s at local levels without national direction but depending on the locality, they know what they can get away with in those localities that they could not get away with elsewhere.

    546. Wes says:

      Wouldn’t Dems have actually had an easier time here, Tg, since they have a 3-2 majority on the NCSBE and at the time had a 6-1 majority on the NCSC?

      Not only that, but Roy Cooper promised to deliver the state for Biden and Cunningham. I’m not sure how local Dems couldn’t steal elections here with backing from the election oversight board, the Governor, and the State Supreme Court.

    547. Tgca says:

      As I noted before, I doubt there was a “need” to win NC and I think it is less credible by many that Trump wins other southern states with similar voters but lose NC.

      I think it’s more credible they took back MI, PA, and WI.

      Again, though I don’t think fraud is widely coordinated across states, folks do you look and watch to see where they can get away with in areas.

      I doubt Antifa would try and go to certain areas to stir up BS. They know where they can get away with it.

      Philly and Detroit were perfect examples because they know they won’t seriously be challenged on fraud.

      Also, we saw the late night antics in these selected areas that did not happen elsewhere or there was extended votes allowed to come in after Election Day.

      I still think Trump was ill served by his “so-called” experts who did not fight these expected fraud opportunities early on. They talked a lot about it but did nothing about it.

      They should have challenged these much early on and not after the election.

      Perhaps Trump’s team was a bit cocky and thought the fraudsters could not perpetuate the level of fraud needed, which wasn’t much when you look at the net votes he lost by that would have otherwise secured him a 2nd term.

      My view, ALWAYS prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

      I think Trump and team were genuinely shocked on election night to see what happened.

      A repeat of the Hilary 2016 debacle.

      I recall on election night 2020 when it appeared Trump was favored to win needed states and that changed over night.

    548. Wes says:

      I’m trying to make sense of your word salad, Tg. Do you really think Antics feared being called out on fraud in Charlotte or Raleigh with Dems running both the NCSBE and the NCSC?

      If so, then you clearly don’t know a goddamn thing about this state.

      The one thing I agree with you on is that Trump was ill prepared for the election. That’s on him.

      NC voted to the left of Georgia every time from 2004 to 2016 and actually went for Obama once because of the high black population and the influx of Northeastern liberals to Charlotte and the Triangle.

      Quite honestly with all the money Dems sank into this state and their structural advantages here, it would have made more sense to commit fraud here than in GA.

      It didn’t happen. That’s why I don’t buy the conspiracy theories.

      Trump was unpopular and unprepared for the election. That was a recipe for a loss, and Trump lost.

      There’s really not much more to say on the issue as your tortured word salad in 560 attests.

    549. Bitterlaw says:

      I know that Trump believed that voting by mail was inherently fraudulent so he told supporters to just vote in person. However, in hindsight, not telling voters to vote by mail if they were more comfortable doing that may have been a mistake.

      While it may not have changed the result, at least he could have argued to a court – “95% of mailed ballots from people who voted for me have matching signatures. 30% of Biden’s mail in votes have matching signatures. WTF”

    550. Phil says:

      Argued to a court?

      He couldn’t find a court that would even entertain actual arguments involved in the actual counting or overhauled voting procedures. The case “lacked standing” or other such rubbish.

      They wouldn’t touch it. It was a done deal. The fix was in. The election was decided when states like Nevada and Pa completely overhauled the election laws prior to Election Day. Unprecedented and it worked like a charm.

      A major study shows how important exercise is to fighting COVID-19. To put it mildly, the lockdown imposed at the advice of Fauci and other so called health professionals may have been counterproductive, and may even have increased the fatality rate.

      “Regular exercise, even just a few days a week of walking, can help in a person’s fight against COVID-19, researchers said. Photo credit: County News Center
      Researchers this week released a study of nearly 50,000 people with COVID-19, finding that regular physical activity provides protection from hospitalization, intensive care admission, even death.
      The findings, from a study by Kaiser Permanente, showed that even inconsistent exercise lowers the odds for severe COVID-19 outcomes when compared to people who are not active at all.
      “This is a wake-up call for the importance of healthy lifestyles and especially physical activity,” said Dr. Robert E. Sallis, a Kaiser family and sports medicine physician. “Kaiser Permanente’s motivation is to keep people healthy, and this study truly shows how important that is during this pandemic and beyond.
      “People who regularly exercise had the best chance of beating COVID-19, while people who were inactive did much worse.”
      The British Journal of Sports Medicine published the study, led by Kaiser Permanente Southern California investigators.”

      Bitter, you have a good point. In California, Republicans now run very effective campaigns to get Republicans to vote by mail. The result is a pick-up of four Republican congressional seats over the last several years. The key is to ensure the vote counting process is done correctly, under direct observation by representatives of both parties, including the right to videotape the counting.

      Wes

      If you’re going to start attacking because you disagree, then you clearly don’t know anything about large metro crime ridden poor minority cities like Philly, Detroit, and similarly where I grew up and saw corruption constantly for decades.

      There clearly appears to be fraud in these selected cities, which is nothing new. These cities have been plagued with fraud claims for years and many have been caught and prosecuted but probably not most.

      I gave an example of Paterson NJ with similar demographics of these cities that just got busted for fraud and had their election voided.

      These are not conspiracy, at least not the issues I am focusing upon.

      There has been detailed analysis done by a few experts specializing in fraud and statistical analysis showing patterns that are nearly impossible to achieve and very different from previous election trends going back decades. I have seen some limited examples of this that is enough to question the results.

      Statistical analysis is reliably used in a myriad of the sciences from actuarial science to demographic and census studies and aeronautics and medicine so to say they’re just not applicable here is silly to anyone with math or statistical training or who works in a field that deals with demographic data used in analysis.

      You may not have seen any of this evidence presented in court yet with expert witnesses explaining why they are relevant.

      The MSM and politicians are doing their best to keep that from happening.

      It was this similar analysis that validated the NJ fraud.

      I’m not talking about the most radical of conspiracists who see fraud or gubbermint evil in everything. I am talking about legitimate significant anomalies NEVER seen before and identified by some professionals that have such a remote probability of occurring.

      It’s too late to do anything about 2020. It was too late in Nov 2020 too. The effort to analyze and present a case of fraud in court usually takes months or more to ensure the information is legitimately presentable for legal review.

      Most respectable, degreed, and certified analysts are not going to perjure themselves or ruin their reputations with frivolous claims.

      I have submitted testimony, discovery, testified, and been in depositions submitting analytical data numerous times attesting to analytical data, and I would never make up data to achieve a goal because once you get caught, your career is over, never mind the legal ramifications if you are caught purposely misleading the court with fake evidence.

      I actually once refused to do what one company management wanted me to do and subsequently left the company of my own will because I thought what they asked violated ethics and legal requirements, even though I think their request was more out of ignorance than willfully committing fraud.

      I would think most in my situation would do the same if their professional reputation was on the line.

      So again, my focus is on legitimate anomalies identified by professionals but who have not yet had the opportunity to present findings in a legal process. If after all that is done, and the other side can explain away all these anomalies, then I would be willing to say it was an incredible coincident to experience something extremely improbable, like watching lighting strike someone in front of you.

      I hope you can also keep an open mind and let the data analysis run it’s course to see what prevails.

    554. Sheeple, Jr. says:

      Jonathan Turley just tweeted in the Chauvin case:

      “…The Court has now acknowledged that Waters may have interfered so greatly with the entire case will be overturned. That sounds a lot like interfering with a constitutional process. Cahill said the statement “was disrespecful to the rule of law and the judicial branch.”

      Also, Pelosi says that Auntie Maxine has done nothing wrong! (But salivated and demanded impeachment when The Donald said to protest peacefully!”)

    555. Tgca says:

      562. Bitter

      That is one example of a statistical anomaly that seems highly improbable that is legitimate to question. There were others like how many ballots were rejected for clerical errors compared to average prior experience, or how much turnout occurred in certain large jurisdictions, or examples where only POTUS was voted upon but no other offices, or where votes came in late at night with 85+ % splits for one candidate only, or comparison of voters to census data, etc.

      When aggregated together, all these anomalies happening by chance in one election makes no sense and should be questioned.

      Again, if it turns out that this was a freak of nature, and we experienced something so statistically improbable, that is a life experiencing event, like your friend winning the super $500M jackpot or being directly struck by lightning and surviving, then that means we all experienced an astronomical extraordinary event but I question that until I see some of these issues professionally challenged and explained rationally.

      More detailed video on Judge in Chauvin case gives very strong criticism of Mad Maxine in denying request for motion of mistrial.

      He calls it interfering in co-equal branch of gubbermint and disrespecting the Constitution.

      He also stated they have an issue on appeal to consider – I guess in referencing if they get a guilty verdict.

      I guess if there is guilty verdict, it’s a given they will seek appeal due to CongressCritter intervening in the case and prejudicing the jury through implied threats. This is very serious from a legal viewpoint. I’m wondering if it could also result in change of venue if mistrial allowed on appeal.

This goes back to what I’ve been saying from the beginning. I wish elected officials would stop talking about this case, especially in a manner that is disrespectful to the rule of law,, and to the judicial branch and our function. I think if they want to give their opinions, they should do so in a respectful, and in a manner that is respectful to the Constitution, to respect the co-equal branch of government.

      I guess there is no judgment there and the police will get a fair trial when POTUS blanket states there is POLICE VIOLENCE against people of color.

      Why our far leftist educational system and woke culture is turning the suburbs blue:

      “At the beginning of this century, Republicans held an 11-point edge on party affiliation among college-educated voters. By the time Barack Obama was president, the figures had flipped to become a 4-point edge for the Democrats. And as President Donald Trump’s term was winding down, the numbers had come full-circle and the Democrats had a 13-point edge among college-educated voters on party affiliation. So, the data suggest that what we are seeing might be more than just a sudden Democratic edge in party affiliation. Those 2021 changes are coupled with a larger shift in party composition. And that might have real impacts come election time because voters with different levels of educational attainment have long exercised their right to vote at different rates. In 2018, voters with a bachelor’s degree cast ballots at a much higher rate than other parts of the electorate, according to data from the U.S. Census. Their 64-percent voting rate was 12 points higher than those with some college and 25 points higher than those whose highest level of educational attainment is a high school diploma.”

So you’ve got to shut down but then gradually open. And we made a set of guidelines a few months ago, with good, what we call, checkpoints. We had situations where you do entry, and you would have phase one, phase two and phase three. Unfortunately, it did not work very well for us in an attempt to do that.”

      Here is how Trump, an experienced businessman, handled Covid-19. Quickly get money from any source and rush forward (at warp speed) the development of a vaccine. The medical bureaucrats are still angry the funds were diverted.

      “The Trump administration quietly took around $10 billion from a fund meant to help hospitals and health care providers affected by Covid-19 and used the money to bankroll Operation Warp Speed contracts, four former Trump administration officials told STAT.
      The Department of Health and Human Services appears to have used a financial maneuver that allowed officials to spend the money without telling Congress, and the agency got permission from its top lawyer to do so. Now, the Biden administration is refusing to say whether the outlay means there will be less money available for hospitals, physicians, nursing homes, and other providers.”

      I used to think he had class, but I guess not.

      I addressed Jadon’s intellect in 522.

      Intellect alone is not everything though. Some of our best and brightest often show they have bad judgment and lack practical solutions, whereas some of our less educated and those more cerebrally challenged often provide pragmatic solutions.

      In addition, intelligence is not categorized by performing cerebral gymnastics alone. There are different types of intelligence including emotional intelligence and street smarts.

      The moral of the story is that Jadon may be a mental midget but he does often surprise us with pragmatic solutions to many of today’s problems that just befuddles the common metrosexual.

      If you are going to criticize me for thinking and analyzing issues, the only reasonable conclusion is you embrace not thinking and oppose analysis. Of course, you don’t know the meaning of the word never so I expected too much.

      RIP, Walter Mondale. A flaming liberal but sane compared to today’s Dems.

      Tgca – The moral of the story is that we have so few posters left that Jason needs to fight somebody and he has designated me even though he agreed we agree on most things.

      For all the years here, we never resorted to name calling.

      I certainly have never called you stupid or ignorant.

      It is a new low for you.

      I usually do support Jason. However, if he is going to criticize me for thinking before answering a question. I am going to point out that it is absurd. For good and bad. I’m a lawyer. I think through issues. That does not mean I am always right or that I disagree with Jason on an issue.
