Super Bowl Ratings CRASH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

The ratings for Super Bowl 55 are in, and the news is not good. The numbers show that viewership fell nine percent, making the game the lowest-rated Super Bowl in more than 50 years.

I genuinely sympathize and empathize with the little guys that work in and around the NFL business that are adversely affected by the moronic policies made by the idiots in charge.

But for the NFL asswipes in charge,  Schadenfreude Boner  !!!!!!!!

Who Is Murdering Whom? And How?

Who Is Murdering Whom? And How?

From The Other McCain:

If all you know about crime is what you get from CNN and Democrat politicians, you might suppose that the typical murder in America is committed by a right-wing white male with an AR-15 rifle. But the facts are otherwise, as for example this recent crime in New York:

A deranged vagrant wielding a lethal length of metal pipe savagely beat four sleeping homeless men to death early Saturday as they hunkered down for the night on the streets of Chinatown, police said.
A fifth homeless man was critically injured, suffering a serious head wound, before police nabbed Randy Rodriguez Santos, 24, as he walked near Canal St. with the murder weapon resting on his shoulder, cops said. One of the victims was a man in his 80s, and the youngest was in his early 50s, cops said.
Santos, who was also homeless, was charged with four counts of murder and one count of attempted murder in connection with the 1:45 a.m. bloodbath. The suspect was arrested this past May for threatening a man inside a Brooklyn homeless shelter, but he walked when the victim refused to press charges, law enforcement sources told the Daily News. . . .
Police said Santos has a rap sheet with a half-dozen prior arrests in the last two years, including the attempted assault with a weapon just five months ago in Brooklyn. According to sources, Santos had a history of fighting and arguing with other homeless people.

‘Inappropriate Behavior’: Elizabeth Warren Fires Organizing Director

‘Inappropriate Behavior’: Elizabeth Warren Fires Organizing Director

From The Other McCain:

The details are sketchy so far:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) campaign on Friday fired its national organizing director Rich McDaniel amid accusations of “inappropriate behavior.”
Warren campaign spokesperson Kristen Orthman released a statement on Friday, confirming that the campaign had been receiving “multiple complaints regarding inappropriate behavior by Rich McDaniel.”
“Over the past two weeks, senior campaign leadership received multiple complaints regarding inappropriate behavior by Rich McDaniel,” Orthman told Politico.
“Over the same time period, the campaign retained outside counsel to conduct an investigation,” she continued.
“Based on the results of the investigation, the campaign determined that his reported conduct was inconsistent with its values and that he could not be a part of the campaign moving forward,” Orthman added. . . .
Details of the accusations remain unclear, but Politico reported that the allegations did not involve sexual assault, according to a source.

‘The Patron Saint of Incels’

‘The Patron Saint of Incels’

From The Other McCain:

The new Warner Brothers/DC film Joker is having an impressive opening weekend at the box office, and there’s talk of an Oscar for Joaquin Phoenix, but critics generally hate the movie for its portrayal of Batman’s nemesis as a misunderstood victim of society. Personally, I am troubled by the subject matter and theme of the film. One thing I recognized long ago is that disturbed personalities have a tendency to cheer for the monster in horror movies. To such people, Freddie Krueger is a hero and role model. So doing the “backstory” on a villain like the Joker, humanizing him and showing him to be a product of an unhappy background, is inherently dangerous. Bad people with a chip on their shoulders are apt to identify with such a figure, and thus to see the Joker’s crimes as revenge on an unjust society.

Three Headlines

Three Headlines

From The Other McCain:

All from Red State:

If New Paul Sperry Report About Whistleblower
Is True, It’s A Game Changer

News Breaks That The Whistle-Blower Worked
For A Current 2020 Democrat Presidential Candidate

Amazing Coincidence That Nancy Pelosi’s Son
Also Has Business Connections With Ukraine

Each of these headlines is significant in making an important point: Democrats are trying to impeach President Trump for allegedly doing the same stuff Democrats always do. Conflicts of interest and using federal power for partisan political purposes? Suddenly Democrats say that’s wrong? As if Obama didn’t do it for eight years?

Friday Fiction: 100 Word Challenge

Friday Fiction: 100 Word Challenge

From The Other McCain (By Smitty)

We crossed the ridge as the sky brooded and looked down on the Umgeheuer encampment.

This was the hard part. I beamed instructions to my drone rider, and he dismounted, unaware of his pending demise. We’d clone him again.
As sun set, the drone crawled in low to where their noisy power generators throbbed and poured pollutants skyward.
Past the generators was a large fuel bladder. The enemy was cocky about their camp layout.
The explosives in the drone’s stomach took full advantage of this.

“Excellent work, Xanthippus,” said General Benton, the drone’s DNA source, upon my return to base.

Hey, @LiamHemsworth: Name Something You Should Never Stick in Crazy

Hey, @LiamHemsworth: Name Something You Should Never Stick in Crazy

From The Other McCain:

There is a proverbial saying among men about avoiding crazy women, so why did Liam Hemsworth ever get involved with Miley Cyrus? In August, when the “Wrecking Ball” singer publicly humiliated Hemsworth by engaging in a lesbian affair with Brody Jenner’s ex-girlfriend Kaitlynn Carter, Hemsworth declared he “wish[ed] her nothing but health and happiness” and an “insider” was quoted saying, “Miley and Liam love each other and always will.” What does “love” mean in such a context? If Miley loved her husband, would she have made such a fool of him? And why would Liam “always” love a woman who had disgraced him?

Well, after her fling with Kaitlynn Carter ended, Miley was reportedly “begging” Hemsworth to take her back, but he’s filed for divorce and returned to his native Australia, and his family is reportedly trying to keep Hemsworth away from the toxic bisexual bimbo:

‘DEEP STATE’ BOMBSHELL

‘DEEP STATE’ BOMBSHELL: Rosenstein Was Part of Anti-Trump Coup Plot

From The Other McCain:

What was widely suspected is now conclusively proven:

Judicial Watch on Wednesday released 145 pages of former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s communications which include a one-line email from Rosenstein to Robert Mueller stating “The boss and his staff do not know about our discussions.” That email came just five days before Rosenstein appointed Mueller to take over the FBI’s Russia investigation as special counsel, roiling Trump’s presidency.
The communications — which include “off the record” emails with major media outlets around the date of Mueller’s appointment — show that Rosenstein did not just dispassionately go along with the fraudulent probe in an attempt to get at the truth, but was an active participant in the deep state coup, secretly plotting with other FBI and DOJ officials against the president of the United States. . . .
On May 8, 2017, Rosenstein wrote a memo to President Trump recommending that FBI Director James Comey be fired. The next day, President Trump fired Comey. Just three days later, on May 12, Rosenstein sent an email assuring Robert Mueller that “The boss and his staff do not know about our discussions.”
In a May 16, 2017 email, sent the day before Mueller’s appointment, Rosenstein emailed former Bush administration Deputy Attorney General and current Kirkland & Ellis Partner, Mark Filip stating, “I am with Mueller. He shares my views. Duty Calls. Sometimes the moment chooses us.”
And on May 17 Rosenstein appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller to investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
During the same time period, between May 8 and May 17, according to then-acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, Rosenstein met with McCabe and other senior Justice Department and FBI officials to discuss wearing a wire into the oval office to spy on Trump, as well as invoking the 25th Amendment to remove the president. . . .
The documents released by Judicial Watch also show that Rosenstein had a cozy relationship with reporters from the anti-Trump news outlets 60 Minutes, New York Times and Washington Post.

Ukraine ‘Scandal’ Hoax Imploding

Ukraine ‘Scandal’ Hoax Imploding

From The Other McCain:

Before we run down the latest developments in the Ukraine hoax, let me remind you of a post I wrote three months ago — June 22:

The Fake Ukrainian Ledger Angle: How
the Media Colluded With the ‘Deep State’

As I explained there, the New York Times reported in August 2016 how Ukraine’s “newly formed National Anti-Corruption Bureau” took an interest in Donald Trump’s campaign manager Paul Manafort — what a coincidence! — and guess what they found? A handwritten ledger allegedly showing cash payments to Manafort. Except this was ridiculous, for several reasons, and the ledger was obviously a forgery:

Manafort’s Ukrainian business partner Konstantin Kilimnik, a regular informer for the State Department, told the U.S. government almost immediately after The New York Times wrote about the ledger in August 2016 that the document probably was fake.
Manafort “could not have possibly taken large amounts of cash across three borders. It was always a different arrangement — payments were in wire transfers to his companies, which is not a violation,” Kilimnik wrote in an email to a senior U.S. official on Aug. 22, 2016.
He added: “I have some questions about this black cash stuff, because those published records do not make sense. The timeframe doesn’t match anything related to payments made to Manafort. …It does not match my records. All fees Manafort got were wires, not cash.”
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team and the FBI were given copies of Kilimnik’s warning, according to three sources familiar with the documents.

Worthless Newspaper Glorifies Batshit Crazy MSLSD Host

NY Times Prints Fawning Profile of MSNBC Host Rachel Maddow

From The Other McCain:

For two years, Rachel Maddow’s show was about one thing: “Russia! Russia! Russia!” She hyped Robert Mueller’s investigation as the silver bullet that would slay the Trump werewolf, and when Mueller failed, Maddow’s ratings slumped and have never recovered.

Well, she’s got out a new book — Blowout: Corrupted Democracy, Rogue State Russia, and the Richest, Most Destructive Industry on Earth, and if you’re going to buy it, you ought to buy it through my Amazon link so I get a commission, right? — and therefore the Democrat-Media Complex is engaged in providing her with free publicity. Amanda Hess provides journalistic cunnilingus in the New York Times:

My Brother Kirby Needs Help

From The Other McCain:

Last month, I rattled the tip jar for my brother Kirby, whose health problems have kept him out of work, and over the weekend he was hospitalized. Now he’s been released and my younger brother will be bringing Kirby up here to stay with us for a while until he can get back on his feet. You can send Kirby money via PayPal. Whatever you can give — $5$10$20 — would be appreciated. He’s got a GoFundMe account, if you’d rather contribute that way. Thanks in advance.

Demonic Forces on the Rise?

Demonic Forces on the Rise?

From The Other McCain

Evil spirits are at work in the world:

According to a 2018 gathering of exorcists at the Pontifical University of Regina Apostolorum in Rome, the number of requests for exorcisms has tripled over the past decade to about 500,000.
While exorcisms are considered the preserve of the Roman Catholic Church, in recent times there has been a growing interest in Protestant circles over the practice.
In May, the Roman Catholic Church announced that they were opening up their annual exorcism course at the Pontifical University to major Christian denominations, in response to a reported rise in demonic possessions.

‘Sexually Explicit Text Messages’

‘Sexually Explicit Text Messages’

From The Other McCain

A Tennessee teenager took his own life after being outed as bisexual by classmates who bullied him, according to his family.
Channing Smith, a 16-year-old student at Coffee County Central High School in Manchester, Tennessee, died by suicide last week, leaving his family looking for answers. The family said it reached out to the teen’s friends, classmates and social media connections and found out the shocking truth.
The teen had sent sexually explicit text messages to another boy shortly before his death. The recipient shared screenshots of the private messages with a female classmate, who released them on social media, according to his family.
Smith was not out at the time and the exposed messages led to incessant cyberbullying, the family said. He allegedly told a classmate about his plans to end his life due to the bullying, but she did not report the threats.

Fake Hate Crime Blamed On Mrs. Pence

Racist Attack on Child Makes National News, Turns Out to Be a Hoax

Gosh, I wonder why this story was considered so newsworthy?

An alleged anti-black hate incident at a Washington, D.C.-area middle school that media outlets tried to link to Vice President Mike Pence’s wife was a hoax, the school said Monday.
Amari Allen, 12, accused three white classmates earlier in September of pinning her down and cutting off her dreadlocks during an attack at Immanuel Christian School, a private school in Springfield, Virginia.
“They said my hair was nappy and I was ugly,” Allen, a sixth-grader, told NBC Washington in an emotional interview.
The story received national attention not just because of the attack, but also because the school has a high-profile faculty member: Karen Pence.
The second lady teaches art at the school two days a week.
NBC News and other outlets highlighted Pence’s job at Immanuel, which has come under the spotlight because the school adheres to traditional Christian teachings and reserves the right to expel gay and transgender students.

Who Is Alexandra Chalupa?

The Question the Democrats Don’t Want You to Ask: Who Is Alexandra Chalupa?

 

Bombshell news from The Washington Times:

Two top Republican senators on Monday asked the Justice Department to investigate claims that Democrats worked with Ukrainian officials to dig up dirt on President Trump ahead of the 2016 election.
GOP Sens. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Charles E. Grassley of Iowa sent a letter to Attorney General William P. Barr asking for more information about whether Ukrainian officials sought to undermine Mr. Trump’s campaign. They also want to know more about 2020 Democratic presidential front-runner, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden’s interactions with Ukrainian officials.
“Ukrainian efforts abetted by a U.S. political party to interfere in the 2016 election should not be ignored,” the senators wrote. “Such allegations of corruption deserve due scrutiny, and the American people have a right to know when foreign forces attempted to undermine our Democrat processes.”
The letter comes just days after the Justice Department revealed U.S. Attorney John Durham is investigating whether Ukraine was involved in any efforts to meddle in the 2016 election.

‘Shared Values’ = $195 Million

‘Shared Values’ = $195 Million

From “The Other McCain”

In order to “remove arbitrary barriers in our community, and provide leadership that is reflective of our shared values,” the city of Portland, Oregon, will spend $195 million to remove urinals from restrooms in a municipally-owned office building. That’s right — if guys want to take a leak, they can pee in a stall in the new gender-neutral toilets. And to repeat, this will cost Portland taxpayers $195,000,000.

I guess most of the country’s moved on to autumn, what with Labor Day being almost a month in the past, football season underway, and friends in states next to Canada already being vexed with snow, but here in Sin City it’s still warm enough to hit the beaches, and where there are beaches there must be lifeguards, hopefully as pretty as Angelica Bridges, seen here reprising her role in Baywatch for a 2016 photoshoot.

Biden Seeks To Bar Giuliani from News Shows

If what Giuliani is saying about Biden and Ukraine is just “unhinged, unfounded and desperate lies,” wouldn’t it be easy for Biden to prove that? But not — they want him silenced. Don’t be surprised if networks comply with Biden’s demand. “Democrat operatives with bylines,” etc.

 

 

Impeachment Mania!

Impeachment Mania!

From “The Other Mccain”

Is there any fact that could convince the Democrats to desist? Have they become so maniacally obsessed that they are beyond reason?

UPDATE: I am astonished that the comments turned into a Drudge-bashing festival, which certainly was not what I intended. I don’t agree with those who contend Drudge is anti-Trump, although perhaps his assistant(s) might be. My hunch is that Drudge looks upon impeachment (and “scandal” generally) as good for his traffic. Besides, if you think that impeachment is apt to prove disastrous for Democrats (as I do), wouldn’t it actually be your duty as a right-wing journalist to encourage them to pursue this mania? So if Drudge’s choice of headlines seems anti-Trump lately, is that possibly misleading? And deliberately so?
