She Refuses To Go Away

She keeps writing insipid books.  She embarks on perpetual book tours.  She’s everywhere since emerging from the haunted woods of Chappaqua.  Her own party wishes she would just go away.
We already know that sunlight, supposedly fatal to vampires turning them to dust, has no effect on this hag.  No amount of garlic bulbs, wooden stakes, Holy Water or religious items have successfully repelled her.  Vampires can live for thousands of years.
She’s more annoying than the IRS and the DMV.
Happy Halloween!

One Win Away

When I was knee-high to a grasshopper and television was broadcast in black and white, I remember joining my dad in the living room of our home to watch the New York Yankees play ball. I fell in love with the game and legendary players like Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford, Roger Maris, Tony Kubek, Mel Stottlemeyer and Mickey Mantle.  Back in the day, games were called by LA Dodgers HOFer Pee Wee Reese and St. Louis Browns’ HOFer Dizzy Dean on NBC and by Pee Wee and Curt Gowdy on CBS.  My dad would always laugh when ‘ol Dizzy would say, “He slud into third.”
Throughout the 1970’s and 80’s the Braves were pretty much the worst team in baseball, but when Ted Turner decided to buy the team in 1976 he began broadcasting the Braves’ game on TBS and after a while the Braves became known as “America’s Team” garnering fans everywhere as Pete Van Wieren, Skip Caray, and Joe Simpson called the games. 
I lived in Atlanta for four years when the Braves started their miracle run to the World Series.  The Braves won 14 titles from 1991-2005.  The Braves won the 1995 World Series against the Cleveland Indians.  Their decade of dominance ended shortly thereafter.
Last year, the Chicago Cubs, the team with the longest title drought in baseball history defeated the Cleveland Indians.  This World Series I’m rootin’ for the Astros.
Thousands of people lost their homes and dozens lost their lives when Hurricane Harvey deluged Houston with 52 inches of rain.  The Astros faithful are still picking through their rain-soaked belongings and homes.  The Houston players and coaches say they are on a mission to give their fans something to celebrate.
Some nights you never forget.  After more than 400 pitches and more than five hours, the Houston Astros managed to make one Dodger lead after another disappear.  They emerged with a 13-12 10th-inning victory in front of a Minute Maid Park crowd of more than 43,000 ecstatic fans─a testament to the magic of the World Series and the timeless power of baseball.  
Our national pastime has on more than one occasion helped a nation in need of healing.  For three nights in 2001 in the Bronx, anxiety and gloom momentarily gave way to a unifying moment following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
God, I love the game of baseball.

DNC Seeking Workers To Compromise National Security

The Democrat National Committee is hiring for new positions on their Technology Team “to build a robust, well-oiled machine that can tackle all elections from the Presidential down to Dog Catcher and School Board.”
Imran Awan, Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s mysterious Pakistani IT guy and his family cabal of fraudsters had access for years to the e-mails and other electronic files of members of the House’s Intelligence and Foreign Affairs Committees. It turns out they were accessing members’ computers without their knowledge, transferring files to remote servers, and stealing computer equipment—including hard drives that Awan & Co. smashed to bits before fleeing the country.
The three Awan brothers, plus two of their wives, were employed on a shared basis by dozens of Democratic members of the House of Representatives, including members of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs and Committee on Homeland Security.
After The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer’s eight years in office Democrats have shed 63 House seats, 10 Senate seats and 12 governorships.  So…I guess that line about a “well-oiled machine” is just a load of nuclear-grade BS.

Oil Up The Guillotines

Democrats and their RINO collaborators are overcome with ecstasy and cheering their little asses off now that Paul Manafort and Richard Gates have been indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.  They are gleefully standing by to oil up the guillotines.

Last July, according to an exclusive report by Daily Mail UK sourced from a secret FBI investigation, left-wing groups from the United States travelled to the G20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany “to meet with al-Qaeda and ISIS leaders and plot the destruction of President Trump.”

Seven months earlier, around Christmastime, Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice pushed plans at a dinner at the White House to “unmask the names of several Trump campaign associates who were mentioned or whose conversations were captured in intelligence intercepts of Russian officials.”

The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer knew Rice was encouraging leaks to The Washington Post and The New York Times accusing Trump and his campaign of colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the 2016 presidential election.

If Rice’s plot to sandbag the newly elected president succeeded in proving there was collusion or attempts to hinder or stop an investigation into such collusion it would grease the skids for charges of impeachment.

At some point during that dinner, Michelle Obama cautioned the plot could “bite us in the ass.”  Valerie Jarrett, it is reported, “piped up saying Comey thinks Susan’s on to something.  He’s investigating whether the Trump campaign cooperated with the Russians.  There must be something there.”

The Federalist reported yesterday that Fusion GPS was first retained by international law firm Perkins Coie on behalf of the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in April of 2016 while simultaneously receiving payments from then-President Obama’s campaign arm, Obama for America, to the tune of $972,000 for the so-called Steele dossier per records filed with the Federal Election Commission.  The dossier is a Democrat screed through and through and a despicable Clinton campaign smear tactic in concert with Kremlin-connected sources.
If the FBI used the dossier to seek FISA warrants to intercept communications involving the Trump campaign, it would mean the FBI used a dirty trick from the candidate of the party in power as an excuse to investigate the candidate from the opposition party.
Democrat lobbyist Tony Podesta, brother of Hillary campaign chairman John, and the Podesta Group are now caught up in a federal criminal investigation by Mueller which grew out of Paul Manafort’s finances.  They could face felony charges for work performed on behalf of a pro-Russian think tank from 2012 to 2014.  
Podesta Group and Mercury LLC, worked in Washington with Manafort partner Rick Gates, according to lobbying disclosure records.
Yes, let’s oil up the guillotines.

The Washington Free Beacon Was “Republican Client” Of Fusion GPS

On Friday night The Washington Free Beacon acknowledged it hired Fusion GPS to dig up dirt on “several GOP presidential candidates” including Donald Trump.
Editor-in-Chief Matthew Continetti and Chairman Michael Goldfarb released the following statement:
Since its launch in February of 2012, the Washington Free Beacon has retained third party firms to conduct research on many individuals and institutions of interest to us and our readers. In that capacity, during the 2016 election cycle we retained Fusion GPS to provide research on multiple candidates in the Republican presidential primary, just as we retained other firms to assist in our research into Hillary Clinton. All of the work that Fusion GPS provided to the Free Beacon was based on public sources, and none of the work product that the Free Beacon received appears in the Steele dossier. The Free Beacon had no knowledge of or connection to the Steele dossier, did not pay for the dossier, and never had contact with, knowledge of, or provided payment for any work performed by Christopher Steele. Nor did we have any knowledge of the relationship between Fusion GPS and the Democratic National Committee, Perkins Coie, and the Clinton campaign.”
“Representatives of the Free Beacon approached the House Intelligence Committee today and offered to answer what questions we can in their ongoing probe of Fusion GPS and the Steele dossier. But to be clear: We stand by our reporting, and we do not apologize for our methods. We consider it our duty to report verifiable information, not falsehoods or slander, and we believe that commitment has been well demonstrated by the quality of the journalism that we produce. The First Amendment guarantees our right to engage in news-gathering as we see fit, and we intend to continue doing just that as we have since the day we launched this project.”
When the Free Beacon was founded, it was part of a 501(c)(4) organization called the Center for American Freedom, but in 2014 it became a for-profit organization.
Conservative billionaire Paul Singer, a major funder of the Free Beacon, opposed Trump at the time of the project and funded Rubio's campaign. Bill Kristol, former editor of the Weekly Standard, was on the board of directors for the Center for American Freedom, and blamed former Florida Governor Jeb Bush for Rubio's defeat in his home state, a defeat that sealed his fate in the primaries. Kristol has remained a consistent Never Trumper.
In 2012 Fusion GPS aimed its guns on donors to Mitt Romney, like Idaho businessman Frank VanderSloot.  In 2015, when the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released sting videos showing Planned Parenthood staffers agreeing to sell aborted baby parts for profit, Fusion GPS compiled a misleading report inferring the videos to be false.
Marc Elias and his law firm Perkins Coie representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, paid Fusion GPS to smear her Republican opponent.  The firm hired a former British spy with ties to the FBI.  The spy, Christopher Steele, wasn’t just any old ex-MI6 agent.  He was the head of the Russia desk at MI6.
With more than 380 payments from the Clinton campaign and the DNC being made to Perkins Coie, it is impossible for Hillary not to have direct knowledge of the purpose of those payments or any earmarks being made especially since her campaign continued to fund Fusion GPS’s “research” through the end of October 2016.
Hillary refuses to leave the “stage” of American politics.  The unconvicted felon may not remain unconvicted much longer.
An FBI informant with critical information on Russia’s potential influence campaign in the Clinton State Department was cleared by the Department of Justice to testify before Congress.  The informant has acquired documents and eyewitness accounts of Russian officials involved in the Uranium One deal and the millions of dollars donated to the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Global Initiative.
I can almost hear the creaking wheels of the tumbril coming for this corrupt harpy.

Democrats' Schiff Into Damage Control

"This investigation is starting again, for political purposes. This is another investigation of Hillary Clinton, long after she's no longer a presidential candidate, no longer the Secretary of State, apparently there's more interest in what happened seven years ago with Secretary Clinton than there is in the (phony Trump) investigation. And that's quite by design."-Adam Schiff, Dimwit-California
Let me get this straight...last year, month after month, Democrats like yourself told us over and over and over again that the ONLY reason Republicans and conservatives were asking for accountability for Mrs. Clinton, was purely political, "to defeat her in November". Remember that? Apparently not. Now you're telling us that it's not to defeat her, since dear old granny Clinton is no longer Sec State or a political candidate?

If by "design", you mean "actual evidence of wrongdoing", then yes, it's by design. And there's far more actual evidence of the Clinton campaign and Clinton and Obama cronies colluding with the Russians than there ever was about Trump. The "dossier" which started the whole "Trump collusion" baloney was apparently bought and paid for by the Clinton campaign and possibly elements of the corrupt Obama administration.

There is also an informant, who has been under wraps since 2009 (for you math impaired liberals, that is LONG before Trump ever announced his run for the presidency), with information about Russian bribery, corruption and collusion with Secretary Clinton and the Obama administration over obtaining US uranium, which through the neglect, incompetence and/or criminal collusion of Hillary and the Obama administration, Russia eventually obtained.

BTW, someone should put this informant on a "suicide" watch, as people who have dirt on Hillary or the Clintons apparently tend to become suicidally depressed.

Dear Adam Schiff, bless his heart, is trying to argue the opposite of what Democrats were bleating all throughout 2016. Why then, according to the brightest minds of Democrats (stop laughing!) would the accusations continue after the election, unless there really was something of substance to cover up, as perhaps witnessed by the largest sudden destruction of smart phones and computer hard drives in recorded history?

The Democrats hitched their wagon to the colossally corrupt Clintons, with all their tremendously famous ethical shortcomings, and are in full damage control mode trying to staunch the bleeding.

The ship is sinking. Tell everyone how shocked, SHOCKED you are over the Clintons' corruption, then head for the lifeboats.

Tennessee Volunteers Vs Alabama Crimson Tide: Hold My Beer, Er, Trash Can

I don’t usually take pity on an opponent who must face my beloved Crimson Tide.  I’m making an exception this Saturday as the hapless Volunteers of Tennessee take the field at Bryant-Denny Stadium at 3:30 PM ET.

In their 2017 season opener, the Vols beat the Jackets of Georgia Tech 42-41 in overtime.  They lost to Florida in heartbreaking fashion on a Hail Mary play in the final seconds of that game and then got steamrolled by the Jawja Bulldawgs 41-0 the following Saturday.

How humiliating must it have been to honor the Volunteers’ hero quarterback Peyton Manning as he was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame only to suffer the worst lop-sided home loss since 1905 to Vandy. That’s the second worst home loss after a 56-0 defeat at the hands of Kentucky in 1893.

The Tennessee football program looks lost this season and continues to disappoint the Vols faithful and they are howling for Coach Butch Jones to be fired because Rocky Top has become Rocky Bottom.
If they canned Butch the school would owe him $9.2 million.  The money is clearly what has Athletic Director John Currie dithering.  If Vols fans stop showing up to their games the AD will have every reason to pull the trigger on Jones’ contract.
In 1992, Tennessee announced in mid-November that Johnny Majors wouldn’t be retained as head coach. In 2008, with three games remaining, UT announced Phillip Fulmer wouldn’t be coming back.
In 2012, Derek Dooley managed to go slightly deeper into the season before he was fired. UT let him go after a 41-18 loss to Vanderbilt on Nov. 17.
Why can’t Butch be classy like Oregon State Head Coach Gary Andersen and just leave?  Andersen left the Beavers sitting at 1-5 midway through his third season at OSU waiving the remaining $12 million on his recently extended contract.  His record at Oregon State was 7-23 in his two-plus seasons there.
“Coaching is not about the mighty dollar. It is about teaching and putting young men in a position to succeed on and off the field. Success comes when all parties involved are moving in the same direction,” said Andersen.
Some guy with a Twitter handle of Not Jerry Tipton summed up Tennessee football in 2017 with this tweet:
The cringe-worthy motivational gimmick has been the butt of merciless jokes.
TennesseeTrashCan (@TheTNtrashcan) joined Twitter in September 2017 and has yet to post a single tweet but here’s one from TrashCanTeam121:
Tennessee’s bye week and a change in quarterbacks didn’t do much to spark the Volunteer offense against the Gamecocks of South Carolina.
During last Saturday’s game, one of ESPN’s cameras caught a shot of a pack of South Carolina fans wearing red t-shirts that read “KEEP BUTCH JONES.” Jones’s fate was the shadow that loomed over the game─and may still for a few more weeks─and the shirts captured just how far the Jones saga has advanced; the coach is so widely blamed for 3-3 Tennessee’s woes that opposing fans are hoping he remains in Knoxville in perpetuity.
The ESPN Matchup Predictor is giving Tennessee a 2.1% chance of victory against the Tide.  With the Vols allowing an average of 252.6 yards rushing and Bama averaging 301.7 yards rushing it’s clear the guys from Knoxville are outmatched in the running game.  The Tide is only allowing opponents to score an average of 10.3 points per game compared to Tennessee’s 25.6.
Alabama owns the series history 53-7-38 and has a ten-game winning streak.
This will be a fun game to watch for Bama fans.  Not so much for the Vols Nation.

There Is Nothing Better Than A Friend, Unless It Is A Friend With Chocolate

L to R:  Sophie The Wonderdog, my friend, Teddy, Tika

Last Friday my plans to visit by best friend of 43 years were changed.
I received a call at 6:00 AM that morning from her telling me she had phoned her daughter-in-law to take her to the emergency room.  Ten minutes later she called me again to say she was feeling better.  I knew that was a lie.  I immediately contacted her son to let him know his mother was in trouble.  He rushed to her house and immediately called an ambulance to transport her to the ER.
My friend was intubated on arrival and remained on a ventilator for five days.  She was sedated as well.  I got hourly updates from her son and daughter-in-law and the news was not good.
On Wednesday morning the medical staff removed the tubing and placed my friend on a BI-PAP machine.  Her breathing continued to be labored and the nurses continued to suction out her lungs.
Last night after she’d finished her shift at work, her daughter-in-law went to the hospital.  My friend’s eyes were open but vacant.  Her daughter-in-law asked if she knew who she was.  As she gave me an accounting of her visit she began to cry─her voice was thick with heartbreak.  The reason:  she thought she was talking to me.  I did my best to console her daughter-in-law.
This morning her son entered her room in ICU to find a weak and confused mother.  He had heard about the night before and he was scared as he spoke with me.
I have tried to tie up all the loose ends here in anticipation of a lengthy stay with my friend.  The guilt I have felt over the last six days has been unbearable.  Despite the assurances of her family members that it was better for me to stay home than be there with her and feel helpless, I finally decided to leave immediately to be with my friend.
If she survives this medical emergency it will be a blessing.  The attending physician said that hypoxia is common in situations like this.  The hypoxia may or may not be permanent.
I know we all have to leave this life someday.  I’m just not ready to say “goodbye” to the best friend I’ve ever had.
While I’m away blogger friends Proof and Sig94 have agreed to hold down the fort here.  Sig recently broke his left shoulder in three places and is recuperating after being retrofitted with a new titanium shoulder.  His typing will be limited to the use of one hand and Proof, well, not sure what he’ll submit.  It’ll probably be a bunch of Star Trek babes.  I apologize in advance.

The Purge: What Do You Wear To A Donkey Funeral?

According to a published report from NBC News, “A shake-up is underway at the Democratic National Committee as several key longtime officials have lost their posts, exposing a still-raw rift in the party and igniting anger among those in its progressive wing who see retaliation for their opposition to DNC Chairman Tom Perez.”
The report continues, “The removal and demotion of a handful of veteran operatives stood out, as did what critics charge is the over-representation of Clinton-backed members on the Rules and Bylaws Committee, which helps set the terms for the party's presidential primary, though other Sanders and Ellison backers remain represented.”
The ousters come ahead of the DNC's first meeting in Las Vegas this week.
Complaints began immediately after party officials saw a list of Perez's appointments to DNC committees and his roster of 75 "at-large" members, who are chosen by the chair. 
Superdelegates not only vote on who the presidential Democratic nominee will be, but also vote on party rules.  The party operatives that are planned to be named as superdelegates include holdovers from Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.  The group also includes union leaders and, for good measure, an illegal alien.
Those who have been pushed out include: 
Ray Buckley, the New Hampshire Democratic chairman and longtime DNC official who ran against Perez for chair before backing Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn. Buckley lost his spots on the Executive Committee and DNC Rules Committee.
James Zogby, the president of the Arab American Institute and prominent Sanders backer, is no longer co-chair of the Resolutions Committee and is off the Executive Committee, a spot he has held since 2001.
Alice Germond, who has been on the DNC since the 1980s, was a vocal Ellison backer, was removed from her at-large appointment to the DNC.
Barbra Casbar Siperstein, the Party’s first transgender member supported Ellison and Buckley, was tossed from the Executive Committee.
Two days ago, the RNC sent out an email blast of a fake schedule for the DNC’s fall meeting mocking the problems Dems are having refighting the 2016 presidential election.
The mock schedule announced that to RSVP, one should email party chairman "Professor Tom Perez" at Thomas.Perez@brown.edu, taking a swipe at Perez's fellowship at the notoriously left-wing Brown University.
The first item on the agenda are opening remarks from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), who is in fact scheduled to speak at the "Women's Convention" later in the month.  The next day includes presentations entitled, "Where is Michigan?: A geographical presentation of what exists between New York and Los Angeles," "No Money, Mo Problems: Investments the DNC would like to make─but can’t" and "The Menendez Mess: How to keep a convicted felon in the United States Senate."
On Day 3, presentations include "Weinstein Shopping Spree: How to spend the $300,000 in money we won’t return from Harvey Weinstein," "Litmus Tests Over Lunch: A guest lecture by Brown University Professor Tom Perez on banishing pro-life Democrats and mandating support for single-payer," "Moral Victories: Jon Ossoff (GA-06), Rob Quist (MT-AL), Archie Parnell (SC-5), Jim Thompson (KS-4) discuss why they actually won their special elections" and "Impeachment or Else: Billionaire donor Tom Steyer lays out his requirement that candidates back a baseless impeachment effort that alienates the vast majority of voters."

I Can Now Be Recycled

Right around noon time my wife drove me home from  the hospital  with my brand new titanium shoulder. My instructions were simple, "When I die don't bother to bury me. Just put me out with the soup cans and used aluminum foil."

The pain is finally manageable but I have a long ways to go. And I love sticking refrigerator magnets to myself. Any suggestions?

Hillary’s New Bully Pulpit: Columbia University

The Democrat Party’s two-time loser who chose to stay on a course of political destruction is reportedly in talks with Ivy League school Columbia University to both take on a formal role with the university and to keep her archives there, according to the New York Daily News.
Granny could potentially be deemed a “university professor” at the famed New York institution, a position that would permit her to lecture in multiple departments and schools but without a specific course restriction.
She has not taught in more than four decades since she administered criminal law classes at the School of Law at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville.
In July 1973 she sat with 816 aspiring lawyers to take the District of Columbia’s bar exam.  In early November of that same year she received news she had failed the DC bar.  A full two-thirds of the test’s takers had passed. She never retook the exam (passing the Arkansas exam instead) and concealed her failure even from her closest friends until her autobiography in 2003.
Jerry Zeifman, Chief Counsel of the House Judiciary Committee during the Watergate investigation, had a low opinion of Hillary. He told the Scripps-Howard news agency: “If I had the power to fire her, I would have fired her. I terminated her, along with some other staff members we no longer needed, and advised her that I would not—could not recommend her for any further positions.”
I wouldn’t worry too much about her ability to lecture ad nauseum on a host of other Bachelor’s degrees suited to her areas of expertise.  For example:
IT 101: Home Server Maintenance
PHILOSOPHY Level 3: Victimhood and Its Many Benefits
BUSINESS 301:  Real Estate Ethics and Standards 
FASHION 104:  Roomy Slacks for Husky Gentlemen 
CRIMINAL LAW 400:  Evidence Tampering
CRIMINAL JUSTICE 402: Avoiding Prosecution
MAP MAKING 101:  Modern Geopolitical Cartography
PSYCHOLOGY 201:  Coping with Failure
The embedded video is an example of what Hillary will look like giving one of her lectures.

2nd Time's The Charm

I wanted to do it right and I sure did, broke my left shoulder in 3 places on Tuesday...tripped over a bedframe in the garage. This is the second time for that shoulder.

Surgery is scheduled for Monday and they may have to replace the whole joint.

Yup, keeping this short and sweet for obvious reasons, see ya'll in a bit.

Arkansas Razorbacks (2-3) Vs Alabama Crimson Tide (6-0)

When the Hogs hit the field at Bryant-Denny Stadium on Saturday they’ll no doubt have last week’s gridiron debacle against the Gamecocks on their mind.  The Razorbacks lost 48-22 to a mediocre team continuing their descent into another aimless season. The Razorback Nation took to Twitter to roast Coach Bret Bielema.
How much longer will the Hogs faithful stand by and watch the dumpster fire that is Arkansas football?  Bielema is 27-29.  He’s 10 of 24 in league play and a pathetic 7-18 versus the SEC West.  His only winning records are against the equally pathetic Rebels and the Vols.
Anybody remember this stellar example of Razorback sportsmanship?  I do.
Dan Wolken, national college football reporter for USA Today Sports released his Week 6 Misery Index.
“The Misery Index is trying hard, oh so very hard, to make a case for Arkansas giving Bret Bielema another year. Bielema is a good coach with an accomplished track record. Arkansas is a harder job than its fans want to admit. There have been some good signs along the way. And, realistically, who is Arkansas going to get that would obviously be better? Then there’s the matter of Bielema’s buyout, which stands at $15.4 million until Jan. 1, when it goes down to $11.7 million. (And by the way, most of the coaching carousel activity will already have taken place by Jan. 1, so waiting until then would be a bad move.) But man oh man, it’s getting hard to justify the direction things are going at Arkansas following a 48-22 loss at South Carolina.
The Misery Index has long said that in a league like the SEC, where everybody has great facilities, big budgets and pays the coach a lot of money, nobody expects to lose. But the reality is that somebody has to, and right now that somebody is Arkansas. Still, it’s impossible to excuse how bad the Hogs look. They turned it over four times against South Carolina (three of which were converted into defensive touchdowns) and now face the prospect of playing Alabama and Auburn in back-to-back weeks. That will drop Arkansas to 2-5 and Bielema to 10-26 in the SEC unless there’s a massive upset. Kind of makes you long for the Houston Nutt days, doesn’t it? Nutt, for the record, only had two losing seasons in a decade at Arkansas, finished first or tied for first in the division three times and third on four other occasions.
The SEC was different then, sure, but winning is possible at Arkansas. Bielema just isn’t doing it, and the further away the Razorbacks get from the smashmouth, offensive line-oriented identity he initially wanted to establish, it’s hard to see how he makes it happen. 
Before the Texas A&M game, the Crimson Tide looked like one of the best-ever assembled teams under Coach Saban. The games against Vanderbilt and Ole Miss were over before they even started.

Last Saturday in College Station, the Tide’s performance was marred by uncharacteristic mistakes.  During the second half, J. K. Scott shanked a punt early in the fourth quarter and had a punt blocked that went out of the end zone for a safety.

The biggest blunder came late in the third quarter when Tide wide receiver Robert Foster dropped a pass that should have been caught and later, on the same drive, fumbled a catch.  It was Bama’s first turnover dating back to 2016’s Iron Bowl─that’s 38 straight quarters.

During Coach Saban’s press conference following the A&M game, he railed against the media saying he “wants them to stop filling his players’ heads” with thoughts they’re invincible.
In the series history between the Tide and the Hogs, the Tide has a nine-game winning streak having won 17 of the 25 games the two schools have played against one another.  Even without ESPN’s Matchup Predictor giving the Crimson Tide a 98.1% chance of winning against Arkansas, I’m certain the outcome of the game will be a thorough throttling of a Hogs team that clearly has no fight left in them. 


Harvey, You’re Making It Hard On Democrats To Talk About The GOP’s War On Women

On the campaign trail Hillary Clinton regularly appeared with celebrities:  Madonna, Beyonc√©, Jay Z, the cast of “West Wing”, the cast of “Empire”, Sigourney Weaver, Star Jones, Jaime King, Connie Britton, Elizabeth Banks, Meryl Streep, Demi Lovato, Sarah Silverman, Lady Gaga, RuPaul, America Ferrara, Amy Schumer, Julianne Moore, Lena Dunham, Bon Jovi, George and Amal Clooney, Robert DeNiro, Danny DeVito, Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry and Selma Hayek.
The voters were worried about the cost of their health care premiums and where they would find the money to pay their bills or fix their cars.  
The last thing any of us wants to hear is late night TV hosts and Hollywood bobbleheads who judge themselves to be “America’s conscience” getting preachy about religion, gun control, freedom of speech and climate change. The Democrats relied on Hollywood to sell their message for the last eight years.  
The only celebrity willing to publicly sympathize with Harvey Weinstein was Lindsay Lohan.  Seems her agreement with Harvey was she’d watch him while he showered for a gram of coke. *snark*
The Party must now distance itself from the holier-than-thou Hollywood elites who have for three decades been silent about people like Weinstein and Hillary’s husband who preyed upon vulnerable young women.
Weinstein is the tip of a very large iceberg and that iceberg includes the Democrat Party.
The sanctimonious Tinsel Town is imploding.

UPDATE:  Drew Magary noted in GQ, “Already, active Democrats like Elizabeth Warren and Al Franken have promised to give back whatever money Weinstein donated to their campaigns. That’s all well and good, but it’s a superficial solution to what REALLY plagues the Democratic Party, and hamstrings their already limp attempts to get their shit together. While Clinton and the like may truly not have known the depths of Weinstein’s depravity, they certainly had an idea of who he was. Rumors about Weinstein’s behavior have been public since 2001, and his reputation as the kind of man who screams at anyone who dares cross him precedes those more damning rumors by years and years. It’s not unfair to assume that someone who so relishes power might wield it in horrible ways. Weinstein was an open shitbag, and the DNC still let him be a champion of the party.”

CNN Went Full Clinton Conspiracy Theory Today

A truly bizarre story appeared in the news today.  CNN, the laughingstock of cable news reported exclusively Russian operatives used platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, YouTube™ and Pok√©mon Go to incite unrest and meddle in American politics.
The fake news organization purported a group called “Don’t Shoot Us” encouraged followers to make use of a feature that allowed them to rename any Pok√©mon they “captured” on the app by replacing it with the names of victims of police brutality.
The ultimate goal was to use those screenshots to get gullible journalists to write about the in-game protests.  Niantic Labs, the maker of the game, told CNN "users can’t actually share information with others.”
The “Don’t Shoot Us” group’s efforts were discovered as part of an investigation into Russia’s use of Facebook to meddle in the election.  Facebook shared what they had learned about accounts linked to the Kremlin with Google and Twitter.
The only person talking about Pok√©mon Go during the 2016 presidential election was…

One Personal 747 Jetliner And 24 Assistants Weren't Enough For Her Eight-Year Vacation On Our Dime?

Richard Branson, the business magnate behind the Virgin Group empire divulged in his new autobiography, Finding My Virginity, that when Mr. and Mrs. The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer came to visit him in the Virgin Islands after President Trump’s inauguration Michelle “couldn’t contain her excitement."
They traveled with an entourage of one hundred Secret Service agents and aides to the private island.
“We’re free!” Michelle Obama said, according to Branson, as he and his wife, Joan, greeted the couple.
“I’ve never been one for reserve and Barack and Michelle were eager to do away with formalities, too,” he writes. “When one of our team asked how to address the former First Lady, she gleefully shouted, ‘Michelle!'”
“It’s so nice to have my name back after eight years,” she told Branson, according to the book.
“We’re free!”  Let that settle on your brain for a sec.
Michelle Obama had an unprecedented number of staffers to cater to her every whim, twenty-four in fact, the largest of any first lady.
All eight trips the Obamas took to Hawaii cost the American taxpayer $3.5 million.
According to a report from Judicial Watch in December 2016, the Obama's travel expenses totaled over $96 million during his eight years as president.
Let’s see…there was Kenya, Malaysia, Ethiopia, Laos, Cambodia, Bali and six trips to France and Germany.
Right from the start, Sasha and Malia were included in their father's travels. In 2009, the First Family visited Ghana to see a slave outpost and visit Michelle's ancestral roots.
Over the years, the daughters accompanied their father to Argentina, Brazil and Cuba. They also went on additional trips with Michelle, like in the summer of 2015 when they went to London, Edinburgh and Venice.
In addition to the annual trips to Hawaii each December, the Obamas also spent two weeks each August in luxurious private homes on Martha’s Vineyard with rents up to $50,000 per week.
These people have frolicked in the lap of luxury hobnobbing with the elite of the elite and that has the Democrat base fuming.  The level of luxury they enjoy is unprecedented for a modern-day president.
Left-wing activists are troubled by what they see as a trend by Obama to distance himself from the base of the party. It’s not just vacations. The president also has enjoyed hefty fees for speeches to prominent Wall Street firms.  The World's Most Dangerous Community Organizer is hell-bent to join the fabled one percenters.
It was he who said, “The world must do more to combat income inequality, noting that the concentration of wealth fans fears that governments exist solely to benefit the powerful.”
