CNN whitewash


The headlines on CNN are: Trump to troops; you are really winning since I took office.

http://www.cnn.com/

At first, I said to myself, here PDT goes again blowing his own horn. That was until I listened to the video.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/23/politics/trump-thanksgiving-teleconference/index.html

There is nowhere in the video that even comes close to; you are really winning since I took office.

Did PDT say; now we are winning and before we were not? Absolutely yes. But CNN, as usual takes what he said out of context to try and discredit him.

Listening to PDT speech, he is no JFK and is severely rough around the edges.  But no media should take what he says and manipulate to their liking.

Let me give all of the Boulder Rollers a little clue. The only people that are getting discredited by report fake news are themselves.  Why don’t this juvenile fools wake up and report the news as it is, without putting their own spin on it.

Sooner then later, that boulder is going to roll back on them.

Should PDT get is dandruff up and be pissed off when someone misquotes him? I would think so. One of the worst things that can happen to ANYONE is being accused of something they did not do or say.

I am the first one that will criticize PDT or anyone else that does or says something out of line. There were even times I even praised Obama for something he did or said; although they were far and few between.

Grow up and get a life fools. If you want to be in the news reporting business, tell it like it is, not what your pea brains want other people to think. You are supposed to be intelligent, professional people. You surely are not living up to what a news reporter should be all about.

I never knew that stupidity in the media was so far reaching.  It is at epidemic levels.

There is strength in numbers, even if …..


Trump is right — America and Russia need to work together to lower tensions

Freddy Boy, I have been standing on my soap box preaching the same thing ever since PDT put his hand on the bible, touting 1,000 positive reasons why the USA and Russia should have a working, compatible relationship. If PDT/the USA can have an amicable relationship with the Judo Guy, without compromising any of our values; than why not??

box.jpg

The USA’s  past leaders, in all of their wisdom, have flushed down the shitter trillions of dollar$ and countless years trying to change the behavior pattern of the way  other countries operate, all to no avail.

To start with; we have so many different issues plaguing our country that we have no business preaching to anyone on how to operate.  Most of them have been on the same course for centuries and they will not change anytime soon. Do we have to endorse what they do? Absolutely not, but use the relationship to our advantage.

Be that as it may. IF the USA and the world  can benefit in anyway from a working relationship with other countries, why not work together.

Take a good look at all of the countries we have invaded illegally or criticized because we didn’t like their mode of operation. Has any of it worked?? Hell no. In most cases, the countries we tried to change were worse off after we left than before we invaded them.

It has cost the USA trillions of dollar$ and 10’s of 1,000’s of lives trying to make other countries conform to our way of doing business. Who ever said the USA was perfect?

All we came away with was, a bankrupt government, scores of injured or maimed people and too many body bags to count.

IFFFFF any of our efforts were successful; then maybe I might agree, but that is not the case. The USA, the most powerful country in the world, has not come away with a military victory since WW II.  A good deal of why we took actions in those countries, aside for the greedy war-mongers starting them, was supposedly because we didn’t like the way they operated.

In my opinion, the stronger the bond is between Russia and the USA, the better off the entire world will be.                         .

Don’t hug your Daddy kids, he may be …..


Girl Scouts Urges Parents To Not Force Kids To Hug Relatives During The Holidays

This is what it is coming down to FOLKS. Society has become so paranoid that the fools that run the Girl Scouts of America are telling the members not to hug friends and relatives anymore.  Actually, they are specifying; no hugging DURING THE HOLIDAYS. BUTTTTT; if they would want them to abstain during the holidays, why would they hug any other time??  It leaves me a little confused.

Huffington Post

As the barrage of explosive sexual harassment allegations continues against men in Hollywood, the media and Capitol Hill, Girl Scouts of USA is reminding parents that questions of consent apply to children too.

 

In a holiday-themed blog post gaining attention this week, the organization, which counts 1.8 million young girls as members, reminded parents to not “force” their daughters to hug or kiss relatives if they don’t want to. Doing so, read the post — which is entitled “She Doesn’t Owe Anyone a Hug. Not Even at the Holidays” — could give kids the “wrong idea about consent and physical affection.”

I can say one thing for certain; there are going to be a lot of ethnic people that will be pissed off and insulted by being shunned. The Italians, Spanish, French, all the Latin people have been hugging and kissing cheeks for centuries. Now, because there are a FEW demented sexual deviates out there; the Girl Scouts want to put a label on everyone.

Wake up you Girl Scout leaders. Go do what you do best and sell some cookies.

Is there ever and end to this PC-insanity?  The PC-ers are attempting to turn everyone one on this planet upside down and revolutionize our entire way of life.  When in the name of a Turkey Drumb-stick is the clammed-up silent majority ever going to come out of their shell and go to war with these fools?? When is enough ever enough??

To all of you pathetic- Pc-ers out there. Better not have the kids kiss or hug their parents goodnight; those slime bags may  have some nefarious intentions!!  You people are maddening.

I would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and mention not to eat too much of the ugly bird.

index

You notice, I didn’t use the “T” word. I understand that the wack job PC-ers are taking offense to the classification of the beast and want everyone from here on to refer to the bird as a UHV,  (unfortunate holiday victim). 

Holiday tip: When you are cutting the UHV, use a very sharp knife and be sure to slice against the grain of the meat so it does not shred.

Prisoner in his own Tweedy Cage


FOX NEWS

Poor man’s Don King’: Trump takes aim at hoops dad LaVar Ball as feud escalates

I have gone the extra mile giving PDT the benefit of the doubt; BUTTTT, this man continues to make a fool out of himself day after day,

Here he is, supposedly the most powerful man in the world, conducting a juvenile, school yard debate, sticks and stones will break my balls, argument on social media with some lame brained father of a thief.

In PDT’s latest assault on the idiot:

President Donald Trump escalated his Twitter war with basketball patriarch LaVar Ball, calling him “a poor man’s Don King” and an “ungrateful fool.”

The Wednesday morning tweet blitz came as the two continued to feud over Trump’s role in securing the release of one of Ball’s three sons from a Chinese jail, where he was held for shoplifting while on a tour of the nation. Ball has rebuffed Trump’s demands for credit, saying it was Chinese President Xi Jinping who freed his son.

Tell me why he had to bring Donald King into the verbal sparring match. Now they can have a 3 some instead of a 2 some.

I have alluded to this many times; just how smart can PDT be if he continues to lower himself into these inconsequential sparring matches on twitter? I guess the answer is easy.

What the hell is PDT thinking or better yet, is he thinking. This monumental, gigantic ego of his has put him in so many predicaments, they are too many to list.

The man has diarrhea of the thumbs. His obsession or love affair with his Tweety Bird phone is going or has been part of his down fall.

untitled                     Republican National Convention: Day Four

It is way beyond belief; with all of the problems plaguing the USA and the world, our president has the time to and stoops so low to have a texting school yard brawl with some certified fool.

694940094001_5653202162001_5653193122001-vs.jpg

There is only one winner in this goolunie busting contest and it is not PDT. This fool on the right has lead PDT right into a texting debate trap. He is getting exactly what he wants out of the circus; to piss off PDT and to get his (NOW) 1 weeks worth of attention. Maybe the salami will write a book.

It wasn’t the White House, it wasn’t the State Department, it wasn’t father LaVar’s so-called people on the ground in China that got his son out of a long term prison sentence – IT WAS ME. Too bad! LaVar is just a poor man’s version of Don King, but without the hair. Just think..

LaVar The Fool, made a statement yesterday that  is a real dozy!!  He said PDT should have flown the three thieves back home on Air Force 1 when he made his return trip from China.

I still firmly support PDT.  I am a guy that is a very loyal friend, but hates some of the things the friend is doing. Only a good friend will tell you when you have something hanging out of your nose. The others, stand back, point at you and laugh their asses off.
index.jpg
I don’t know if it ever dawned on The Man. Not only is he making a mockery out of himself and the office he holds, but the world is laughing at the USA and it’s VERY foolish leader.
Lock Tweedy Bird in the cage and leave her there Mr. President.  You are not doing yourself or the country any favors by being so foolishly spontaneous.
images
Will PDT follow my advice and the advice of many others?? Hell no he won’t.
He doesn’t seem to know it but he is cutting off his nose to spite his face.

PDT; I’ll show them who the fool is!!!

Heads are falling like the big domino game


Charlie Rose, Al Franken and Roy Moore: The harassment allegations continue

Before we know it, there are not going to be many big wig executives left standing. They are all falling like the Big Domino Game.

Now we have Charlie Rose with is neck in a noose. He admitted and apologized for his sexual misconduct all in one sentence.

original.png

Rose, the co-host of “CBS This Morning” and a “60 Minutes” correspondent, as well as the owner and creator of his nightly PBS program, gave the Post a statement:

“It is essential that these women know I hear them and that I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior. I am greatly embarrassed. I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate. I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken.”

Shame on him and the rest of the bully perverts.

These are a few of the the top listers in the sexual harassment hall of fame.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/10/25/us/list-of-accused-after-weinstein-scandal-trnd/index.html

171101104142-110117-the-accused-sexual-assault-grid-super-169.jpg

This is probably just the tip of the ass grabbers, boob brushers and sexual deviates list, who through the years have covered up their misbehaving, in some cases and crimes against women in other cases, by paying them off  or putting the fear of God in them to keep quiet.

In all fairness, I think there is a tipping point between molestation, harassment and accidental encounters.  To compare a rapist to a guy that casually or accidentally brushed against a women is unfair.

It is not a common thing, but I have seen women slap a guy on his ass in a joking manner.  It that to be considered sexual harassment?  What should be good for the goose, should be good for the gooser.

Should what Joking Joe Biden does be considered sexual harassment or is his day in court just around the corner?? This guy that is admired so intently by all of  the Demo-PC-ers. He  is probably one of the worst offenders when it comes to being out of line with the ladies. Are his intentions malicious or is he just a pain in the ass? I will say door # 2.

Like everything else in our money mongering world; where there is a few dollar$ to be made, the rats come out of the wood work.

On the flip side of the dollar; if anyone tries to discredit or shake down a person with false accusations for the sake of the buck or 15 minutes of fame, they also should be held accountable and prosecuted. There is nothing worse or can permanently damage a persons reputation then be accused of a crime they did not commit.

I absolutely agree; if any man, or any women for that matter, actually crosses the line, they should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, no matter who they are. Wild Bill is the best example of a guy; WHO GOT AWAY WITH IT.

I know I posted this 1,000 times and will continue to do so with every opportunity I have.  The man should have been impeached regardless of the repercussions.

If this hail storm trend continues with it’s snow-BALLING effect, just about everyone that has attended an office party can find themselves standing before some guy with a gavel in his hand.

If the hatchet keeps falling, there are going to be a multitude of vacant seats to fill.

I would like to put it out there as a JUST IN CASE. To all of the news media organizations that just shit canned their honchos, I am available to fill that hole or empty seat. Am I clean as the board of health? Probably not BUT I will be up front before I sit in the big chair.

Prosecute the offenders and send the phony accusers to the slams.

The Rule of BUTT, what is good for the goose, should be good for the goosers!!

Beshore argues that the prediction was correct, but that the definition of a Biblical generation was incorrect and was actually 70–80 years, placing the Second Coming of Jesus between 2018 and 2028 and the Rapture by 2021 at the latest. [167]
2026 Messiah Foundation International Members predict that the world will end in 2026, when an asteroid would collide with Earth in accordance with Riaz Ahmed Gohar Shahi‘s predictions in The Religion of God. The chances are only 1 out of 300,000. [168]
2060 Isaac Newton In an unpublished manuscript, Newton gave a date of 2060 which was falsely reported as a date for the end of days.[169] He was against date setting. Rather, he gave it as a date before which it could not happen. He later revised this date to 2016.[170][171] [172]

BUT, always the BUT, we are not out of the woods yet.

Scientific predictions

Various scientists and scientific groups from around the world have theorised estimated dates for possible natural events which would potentially endanger life or existence on Earth, with the earliest predicted date being approximately 300,000 years from now.

Estimated years from now Claimant(s) Description Ref.
300,000 Peter Tuthill WR 104 will be expected to explode in a supernova. It has been suggested that it may produce a gamma ray burst that could pose a threat to life on Earth should its poles be aligned 12° or lower towards Earth. The star’s axis of rotation will have yet to be determined with certainty. [176]
500,000 Nick Bostrom Earth will have likely been hit by an asteroid of roughly 1 km in diameter during this period, assuming it cannot be averted. Bostrom writes “In order to cause the extinction of human life, the impacting body would probably have to be greater than 1 km in diameter (and probably 3 – 10 km)”. [177]
1 million The Geological Society Earth will likely have undergone a supervolcanic eruption large enough to erupt 3,200 km3 of magma, an event comparable to the Toba supereruption 75,000 years ago. [178]
100 million Stephen A. Nelson Earth will have likely been hit by an asteroid about 10–15 km in diameter (comparable in size to the one that triggered the K–Pg extinction which killed dinosaurs 66 million years ago), assuming it cannot be averted. [179]
500 million James Kasting The level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere will drop dramatically, making Earth uninhabitable. [180]
500–600 million Anne Minard Estimated time until a gamma ray burst, or massive, hyperenergetic supernova, occurs within 6,500 light-years of Earth; close enough for its rays to affect Earth’s ozone layer and potentially trigger a mass extinction, assuming the hypothesis is correct that a previous such explosion triggered the Ordovician–Silurian extinction event. However, the supernova would have to be precisely oriented relative to Earth to have any negative effect. [181]
1–5 billion Various The estimated end of the Sun‘s current phase of development, after which it will swell into a red giant, either swallowing Earth or at least completely scorching it, will occur around five billion years from now. However, as the Sun grows gradually hotter (over millions of years), Earth may become too hot for life as early as one billion years from now. [180]
[182]
[183]
1.3 billion Various It is estimated that all eukaryotic life will die out due to carbon dioxide starvation. Only prokaryotes will remain. [184]
3.3 billion Jeanna Bryner One percent chance that Jupiter‘s gravity may make Mercury‘s orbit so eccentric as to collide with Venus, sending the inner Solar System into chaos and potentially leading to a planetary collision with Earth. Other possible scenarios include Mercury colliding with the Sun, being ejected from the Solar System, or colliding with Earth. [185]
7.59 billion David Powell Earth and the Moon will be most likely destroyed by falling into the Sun, just before the Sun reaches the tip of its red giant phase and its maximum radius of 256 times the present day value. Before the final collision, the Moon possibly spirals below Earth’s Roche limit, breaking into a ring of debris, most of which falls to Earth’s surface. [186]
22 billion Various The end of the Universe in the Big Rip scenario, assuming a model of dark energy with w = −1.5. Observations of galaxy cluster speeds by the Chandra X-ray Observatory suggest that the true value of w is ~-0.991, meaning the Big Rip will not occur. [187]
10 duotrigintillion Various The heat death of the universe is a scientific theory in which the universe will diminish to a state of no thermodynamic free energy and therefore will no longer sustain directed motion or life.

Although most of us insignificant beings will not be around in 10 duotrigintillion, we can safely save, some day the end is coming; dooms day definately is heading our way.

Just as an IN CASE, keep a couple slabs of KOBI in the freezer and a few bottles of DOM chilled; JUST IN CASE.

Have a good day – week -month – year- decade – century.

It is my sincere wish that mankind would get it’s shit together and cut out all of this nonsense of trying to annihilate one another. There is plenty of EVERYTHING to go around to satisfy and care for everyone on the planet, BUT, always the BIG BUT; there are a bunch for no good greedy son-of-a-bitchen lunatics that want it all. Shame on them.

All of the war-mongers should join the ranks of that other crazy bastard Charles Manson that bought the farm last night.

We’re not in Wonderland anymore Alice.
If you’re going to do something, do it well. And leave something witchy.

Good ridden to bad garbage.

It really tests a person faith in a Supreme Being when/if they would allow scum like Manson and so many other degenerate criminals to be born.
I would be very happen to throw the switch on all of them as my contribution to society.

Good for the Mayoress


LaToya Cantrell elected first female mayor of New Orleans

Good for Cantrell. Hopefully she can keep her hands clean in a city that is notorious for having a thief or who two served as mayor.

636466491544795376-AP-NEW-ORLEANS-MAYOR-ELECTION-95437623.JPG

Let us take a wait and see if this fiery lady can shame them men that came before her and do a good and honest job for the people of New Orleans. Whenever people are surrounded with others that are infested with flees, it is extremely hard not to get the critters.

There are several women that I truly admired in politics. Golda Mier – Julia Eileen Gillard and Margret Thatcher. All of the three ladies I would vote for if they were running for the Big Chair in the USA. They all did a stellar job serving their country. I wish I could say the same for most of the men that served as our presidents.

An example of corrupt mayors in the city known for their fast way of life, thrown beads and flashing their boobs, is Clarence Ray Nagin Jr. He bull-shitted his way into the mayor-ship with his silver tongue and promises of change and did the city more harm than good.

Now I ask you; who can be worse than a crook that steals from his own people? On the despicable scale, Nagin ranks right up there with the worst.

Corruption allegations, indictments and convictions

On April 7, 2009, the Times-Picayune alleged a conflict of interest with regard to a trip Nagin took to Hawaii in 2004. The vacation Nagin, then-chief technology officer Greg Meffert, and their families took in 2004 was claimed to be partially paid for by Meffert, but years later it was revealed that Meffert used a contractor’s credit card to pay for Nagin’s plane ticket.[54] David Hammer of the Times-Picayune reported on April 23, 2009, that Nagin had taken “plenty of other trips” at the expense of NetMethods, a company owned by city vendor Mark St. Pierre.[55]

In April 2009, Nagin was obliged “to sit for a deposition as part of a civil lawsuit over the city’s controversial crime camera program.”[56] The Times-Picayune had obtained information that Mark St. Pierre, who allegedly paid for the holiday, had made substantial donations to Nagin’s 2006 re-election campaign.

Nagin’s Chief Technology Officer, Greg Meffert, was later charged with 63 felony counts in what authorities say “was a lucrative kickback scheme.”[57] All but two of the counts were subsequently dropped, and Meffert eventually pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and one count of filing a false income tax return.[58]

In June 2012, Frank Fradella, who was facing major securities fraud charges, pleaded guilty in New Orleans federal court to one count of conspiracy to bribe a public official. According to The Times-Picayune, Fradella claims to have paid $50,000 and delivered truckloads of free granite to Nagin’s sons’ business in exchange for favorable treatment for Fradella’s companies with city contracts.[59]

On January 18, 2013, Nagin was indicted on 21 corruption charges, including wire fraud, conspiracy, bribery, money laundering, and filing false tax returns related to bribes from city contractors.[6][60] The 21-count federal corruption charges were issued by a grand jury.[61] On February 20, 2013, Nagin pleaded not guilty in federal court to all charges.[4][62] Despite New Orleans’ long history of political corruption, Nagin was the first mayor to be criminally charged for corruption in office.[63]

Nagin was convicted on 20 of the 21 counts by jury on February 12, 2014.[5] These charges included that he had taken more than $500,000 in payouts from businessmen in exchange for millions of dollars’ worth of city contracts.[5][64]

Incarceration

Judge Helen Ginger Berrigan, a Bill Clinton appointee to the federal bench, ordered a pre-sentencing investigation. On July 9, 2014, Nagin was sentenced to ten years’ imprisonment, and more than $585,000 in restitution and forfeiture.[8] Berrigan recommended that Nagin be sent to the Federal Correctional Complex, Oakdale.[65] On July 15, 2014, Nagin’s attorney filed an appeal with the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.[66]

On September 3, 2014, a judge deemed Nagin indigent and ordered the Federal Public Defender’s Office to take over his appeal. Nagin said he was near penniless and relying on food stamps.[67] Nagin reported to the Federal Correctional Institution, Texarkana, a prison camp, on September 8, 2014.[68]

I have always been amazed; some of the biggest crooks in this world are people that really don’t need it. They have the world by the ass, but enough is never enough for them.

The following are great examples of what I am talking about. Many of the people in Saudi Arabia that have been arrested for corruption are billionaires. Why do they feel the need for greed? It is in the DNA.

GloalSecurity.com

Saudi Arabia dismissed a number of senior ministers on 04 November 2017 and detained nearly a dozen princes in an investigation by a new anti-corruption committee. Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, a billionaire businessman who owns investment firm Kingdom Holding, was among those held.
