Kansas City Chiefs star Kareem Hunt fired after video shows him pushing, kicking woman – NBC news

What this man has done is inexcusable.

That being said, I think the NFL is inexcusable. we have turned these poor men into gladiators who for a lot of money destroy their brains and live out their lives for the most part in misery. The NFL needs to take ownership of their issues with brain injuries or it should no longer be on network television. If someone wants to pay for it then let it be on pay-per-view but advertisers should stop advertising on NFL games. They might as well be advertising on shows about child molesting.

#betrayal

When you think about this President he has never been a friend of the military. when he was supposed to do his duty in Vietnam he claimed bone spurs but was still able to play on varsity leagues teams in college. He has yet to visit the troops anywhere even the ones he sent to the southern border. His hypocrisy about how much he cares for the veterans and the military is now out in full vision to everyone.

They had promised, just a month ago that they would not do this. But no one can believe anyone in this administration because they are all liars. That’s painting a lot of people with a bold stroke but if you’re going to work in this Administration you have to know that lying is part of your job description.

He is a disgrace to our nation, and to anyone who has died for the privilege of being an American citizen.

Hundreds of vehicles recalled in Kansas after number plates spell out racial slur – The Independent

There are bad people or characters in every country. And sometimes these bad characters flaunt their hatred. Sam Woolf wanted walking in darkness with tiki torches and looking idiotic. Someone wanted it seems with racial slurs on license plates. Are we surprised that this is in Kansas? I’m not. I’m just very sad and embarrassed for the country. By the way this article is by a uk-based newspaper and that makes it even worse. we are the laughing stock of the world thanks to The tangerine nightmare in the White House.

Obama World lovefest for O’Rourke is growing – TheHill

if the Democrats are going to win the White House in 2020 they must be pragmatic. I think that Beto O’Rourke would fit the mold for a lot of those people who would be uncomfortable, maybe because of their racism, with a person of color at the top of the ticket. I would love to see Carmela Harris as president but I fear that she would polarize the right into Ville coming out in voting and Rose. I believe the right learned our lesson with President Obama and have now mobilized as a feverish voting Bloc. They don’t seem to have Trump fatigue, which baffles me. So yes, a young man, a Kennedy like like figure would be a great choice.

Very unscientific polls of Democrats on Twitter have him in the lead, they don’t work checks a lot of boxes for voters. He’s fully bilingual, he is an amazing speaker and most importantly he makes you feel good when you hear him. And he also tells the truth which would be such a refreshing difference from what we have right now in the White House.

During 2004 Democratic Convention I had some friends over watching the keynote speech by then Senator Obama. After we finished I said he’s going to be our president and everyone in the room started chuckling and told me I was delusional. For some reason, I get the same feeling from Beto O’Rourke.

Christine Blasey Ford speaks out: Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser released a rare statement last week – CBS News

And here we are. Brett Kavanaugh is on the Supreme Court. Clarence Thomas is on the Supreme Court. I cannot imagine what it’s like for the women on the Supreme Court. Having to face these monsters on a daily basis. I don’t care about people saying that they have moved on. These are terrible people and history will judge them poorly. I’m worried that history will judge us poorly.

Clarence Thomas has had a continued abuse of his position on Supreme Court. He refuses to recuse himself in matters that his wife has financial dealings in. It’s corruption, let’s not mince words here.

I shudder at the decisions that these two men in the future. Brett Kavanaugh was on the record saying that the courts should never Grant new rights to people. The cord was always the place where we looked for Justice and now it’s gone for the foreseeable future.

Manafort lied to the FBI after his guilty plea, special counsel says – Los Angeles Times

He cavorted with tyrants, oligarchs and dictators. That’s the kind of man Paul manafort, with a small m is. So it’s not surprising that the chairman of the Trump election Committee in 2016 would lie after he made a plea deal. Have you ever heard of a den of thieves, that’s what’s Trump, his White House staff and everyone associated with his campaign are, a den of thieves.

Liars are liars and they won’t stopeven if it means they’re going to spend the rest of their lives in jail

Mia Love gives Trump no love as she concedes a narrow loss in Utah – The Washington Post

In his post-mortem of the 2018 midterm elections, Trump made some weird remarks about Republicans who lost. his weirdest was that Mia Love had shown them no love and therefore she had lost. He did basically the same thing with others but his play on words had the media going.

The GOP lost 40 seats in the house because of trump. By the way I don’t capitalize his name. And I certainly won’t call him president. If the Senate was up a professional body they would have lost big time there as well. This is my one big p with the American system, North Dakota with 440,000 people has the same two senators as California with 42 million people I don’t understand how that is fair. Taxation without representation or at least with full representation.

It’s going to be a rocky month and as he gets more and more unhinged we should be frightened. My Lord, he just asked that we have state-run television just like in North Korea. He said that the lady who does the news was full of pep. What he forgot to say was in North Korea if she wasn’t full of pep she would be dead. Perhaps that’s what he wants for our country, God forbid.

Did I fail to mention that this is Utah!

Russia attacks and seizes three Ukrainian naval vessels off the coast of Crimea in Black Sea – NBC News

I guess Putin is testing to see whether or not he got his money’s worth in the election of Donald Trump. Let’s see how quickly Donald Trump responds to this or says that this is an internal matter and not one that has anything to do with the American people. That is full BS. It is the policy of the United States to try to keep the Nations that split off from the Soviet Union free and independent. It is the policy of Donald Trump’s boss, Putin, to bring as many into his fold again as possible. Russia is a dying country with very few resources. The resource they had been banking on is the resource that has become the least needed, oil. I found it ironic when the Tangerine nightmare in the White House said that the price of oil has gone down because of him, I’m sure this is not making his overlord happy. you remember those Winter Olympics, Putin borrow the money for those Winter Olympics with the understanding that oil would stay at $125 a barrel or more, and that’s not what’s happening.

So now Trump is being tested.

Was he worth the investment by Putin for putting him in the White House?

Can’t wait to watch the Republicans try to ignore the fact that Putin is trying to bring back the Soviet Union.

Trump tore up our nuclear arms agreement with Russia. What else is this unhinged man going to do?

I fear that Trump will go along with whatever Russia wants because as his biggest supporter, hannity says, they have the pee tape.

Trump administration wants Supreme Court to take up transgender military ban now – NBC News

When the asshole who is in the White House was running for president he kept saying how much he loves the gays he said it over and over again. It’s why he is gotten the moniker of Liar in Chief.

He doesn’t want people to get any rights other than the ones who voted for him. He doesn’t care about the 60% of the United States did not vote for him. Look what he’s doing to California. He is a disgrace and I wish the network’s would stop covering every morsel that comes out of that man’s hole in his face. I’m sorry I usually I’m not this angry but this is beyond the pale.

The Israeli military was one of the first to allow gays lesbians and transgender to be in their military. Nobody can say that the Israeli military is weaker for it. As a matter of fact the statistics show that militaries that are inclusive have a better moral and longer stays in the military. Our own pentagon is not in favor of this. The Tangerine nightmare in the White House is playing to his base and stirring up anti-gay sentiments in those 40% that voted for him. Shame on him.

Breaking: U.S. climate report warns of dire changes by 2050 – POLITICO

The idiot in Chief in the White House who is only concerned with his uneducated base and his corporate overlords. it’s like he doesn’t have a 13 year old son that is going to be impacted by climate change. But as he said in the interview with Fox when they ask them what his process for making decisions were and he replied I don’t have one. This completely illustrates his horrendous 2 years and the White House, no thought process.
