O’Reilly out at fox, but probably with a big payout

April 20, 2017 by

Since Bill just signed a new contract I would bet that Mr. O, will get a nice severance payout.

"It is a staggering amount," said a source personally involved in the exit maneuverings.

Fox is only on the hook for one years’ salary, according to one of the sources. That’s why the payout totals $25 million.

Please someone buy me out. I won’t say a word……

More seriously, I don’t know if O’Reilly is guilty of anything. The public version of the accusations are pretty weak. But in these times it doesn’t take anything for sexual harassment claim. While I’m not a great O’Reilly fan, I watched his show now and then and was given “killing the Rising Sun” as a gift. It turned out to be a very good book. (Martin Dugard is a very good writer).

Every day I watch less and less cable news. There just isn’t much news there. Nearly all opinion and conjecture.

#SusanRice,#Wiretapping

Donald trump set the trap and look who walked in.

“White House lawyers last month learned that the former national security adviser Susan Rice requested the identities of U.S. persons in raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the Donald Trump transition and campaign, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter.”

Susan (It was a video / Unmask those names) Rice

And Rep. Adam Schiff seems to backing away from his story that there was more than circumstantial evidence of Russian collusion.

Oakland Raiders to Las Vegas!

March 28, 2017 by

So after spending a lifetime as an Oakland Raiders fan it seems the ride is nearly over. Living through the good years (70s) and the bad (all of the last 12 minus last year) I’ve stood by the Raiders. Even when they moved to LA. I mean, at least they were still in California. Granted I haven’t lived in CA since 1984 and doubt I ever would again.

To me they will always be the Oakland Raiders. Now it seems I’ve got just a few seasons left. They will potentially move around 2020 after a new stadium is built in Las Vegas. Now I like Las Vegas and see no issue with them having a team, but I hate the way teams move. My rule, should anyone give a **&*, would be that you can move but the name stays. I’d probably become a Las Vegas “whatever” team fan anyway.

Currently I live in Colorado, in Bronco territory. That means I live a pain filled life during football season anyway. No, I won’t become a Denver fan.

Replace and repeal a failure?

March 27, 2017 by

Update: See below in red

Is the inability to secure a healthcare bill in the first one hundred days a failure?

There are many in the media claiming that the inability of the Republicans and President Trump to fully repeal and replace the “Affordable Care Act” (ACA) as a catastrophe. But is it really? While the optics don’t look good, the fact is, regardless of what happened and what will happen the press as a general rule will pan the results.

It’s important not to get too wrapped up in the spin on this issue. The ACA needs to be changed. That is a given. If it takes some time to fix the current legislation that isn’t a failure. The problem is that many Americans, myself included, have little faith that anything will be fixed but just reworked and the same flaws will still be there.

In the currently political climate, there is the desire on all sides to continually spin everything, every minute of every day. This has congress and the White House spending all of their energy spinning and counter-spinning rather than working.

Part of this problem is based in our news reporting. The major news outlets spend an inordinate amount of time on Washington political issues rather than the news that happens in the US and around world. There is this idea that the public only wants to hear what Washington has to say. In fact, there is a lot of news that is not investigated or reported that never reaches the airwave or newspapers. This leads politicians to continually attempt to get airtime as a way to show they are really working for their constituents.

Hummm.  Maybe the media should ignore Washington for a while so they can get some work done.

Do Republicans know how to write and pass a bill?

The Republicans have had at least seven years to come up with a new healthcare bill. Why is there nothing ready to go? The answer is simple. It’s much easier to complain and point fingers than actually create something. Politicians only want to keep the money train rolling for themselves and their cohorts. The idea of doing their jobs as the public see it is foreign to them. Sitting in a room working on legislation (which they generally have underlings doing anyway) is not glamorous. If they did it themselves I bet the bills would be a lot shorter and clearer.

Update:

U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Huntsville, introduced the bill Friday.

"This Act may be cited as the ‘Obamacare Repeal Act,’" the bill states.

And the bill uses just one sentence to do it.

"Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted," the bill states.

And that’s it – one sentence

As Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit asked, “Why aren’t bills on infrastructure, tax reform and free speech lined up like planes on a runway?

The “Conservatives” in the Republican Party claim a watered down ACA will not be acceptable. I keep looking for their bill but have yet to find it. (see above)

I am sympathetic to the GOP problems however. I too want a conservative health care bill. But then, I am a radical. I am a heartless bastard that thinks free things for some is a form of slavery for both the recipient and the financier. Still, momentum means something. Victory doesn’t always come in one single battle. Lots of little victories can add up.  But then, so can lots of little failures.

We all die together?

March 23, 2017 by

Katie Hopkins is right.

Liberals convince themselves multiculturalism works because we all die together, too.

An entire city of monkeys: see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. Blind. Deaf. And dumb.

Only it’s not just a city but nearly all of Europe, Scandinavia and 40+ percent of the United States.

Multiculturalism doesn’t work. If cultures are too different they will clash, they will divide. Multi-races are possible. However all must believe in the same basic principles and laws. Cultures don’t allow this.

This is what sheep before the slaughter look like.

Islamic Radicals continue to laugh and plot the end of the West. Socialist smile with the naiveté of a child not realizing they will be the first to go.

What if he just says no?

March 13, 2017 by

Some in congress have demanded Trump show what evidence he has that former President Obama had him “wiretapped”.  Or what, I wonder?

Perhaps the left (media) and the John McCain will turn against him.  Heaven forbid!!!

#daywithoutwomen

I seriously think this was thought up by over nagged husbands.  Good job guys.  Whoo hoo…I’m all for the part about avoiding shopping for a day also.  Hells yeah! Although I don’t know what they have against small women.  (see below)

I’m not so happy with wearing Communist Red though.  Well, maybe it’s Christmas Red!  Yeah, I’ll go with that.

Anyone, anywhere, can join by making March 8th A Day Without a Woman, in one or all of the following ways:

  1. Women take the day off, from paid and unpaid labor
  2. Avoid shopping for one day (with exceptions for small, women- and minority-owned businesses).
  3. Wear RED in solidarity with A Day Without A Woman

 

Is a suggestion an order? Wiretapping!

March 4, 2017 by

Did President Obama wiretap Donald Trump prior to the election? Based on a FISA request reported by Brietbart, it may be that President Obama used the power of the intelligence community to monitor Donald Trump’s conversations in Trump Tower.

clip_image002

What evidence does President Trump have? We don’t know yet. Maybe he’s just making it up. This is breaking so it will take some time to sort out, but it does reflect just how bad the fight between those that lost the Presidency and President Trump has become.

A spokesman for President Obama has denied ordering the wiretap however, it has not been denied that it was done. Some of the previous administration officials have stated that something must have been up for the FISA court to permit the action. Really?

Yet, it appears that nothing was found. There seems to be an awful lot of Russian angst. Doesn’t that seem a little odd for an administration that thought Mitt Romney’s Russian foreign policy was from the 80s?

We continually hear about Trump’s Russian contacts yet no evidence of any wrongdoing can be found. Jeff Sessions may have spoken with the Russian Ambassador, just like a whole lot of Democrats in Washington did.

clip_image006

It is, however, nice to have intelligence on every move your competitor makes. Even so, the Democrats still lost the election. Perhaps we should continue to investigate. I recall and illegal server and thousands of deleted emails are still and issue, lots of classified information seems to have gotten on some of those emails and a lot of classified information is still leaking. Yes, investigate indeed.

clip_image008

The former President and the left simply can’t accept the results of our election, you remember that election that couldn’t be questioned when they thought Hillary would win.  They are now doubling or maybe tripling down on their narrative. Will it work? If it doesn’t work it may destroy the Democrat Party. It seems the left are going all in.

That said, fear not my progressive friends, the Republican Party is full of politicians too scared to really stand up to you. Only the President needs to be fought.

Hold the line!

I swear the leftist, RINOs and NeverTrumpers are turning me to fully support President Trump.

Can the President question or ridicule a judge?

February 14, 2017 by

Why not? Of course he can. This does not upset the balance of power. It does not change the separation of powers. It in fact, shows the difference of power. President Obama criticized the sitting Supreme Court in his Term and now Trump has spoken about a sitting judge. So what? Unless a president usurps that Judges authority then it’s just the natural search for that balance of power.

clip_image002

Don’t Congressmen and Senators continually question, criticize and often ridicule the standing President whomever it may be? Of course they do and vice versa. But now with a Republican and especially a Trump in office the standard must change somehow?

It’s not seemly of course and is a shame but there is a fight to be had. We don’t have gentlemen politicians as we may have once had. This unfortunately is the system we have created.

According to the social Justice crowd, the defeated Democrats and a spattering of other Marxist the elected officials who won, must bow to them and their demands. It seems they have this a little backwards. I remember a former President say something to the effect of, “Elections matter. I won; you lost. Deal with it.”

clip_image004

The middle class, the working class, those that actually pay the bills, should remember these people and groups in the next election and continue the streak of defeats these groups have brought to the Democrat Party.

So once again I say President Trump, hold the line. Don’t give in, don’t give up, and keep pushing forward.
