  1. Wow never thought anyone from CNN would this….the 2016 claims sounded like BS to me….just like the 2020 claims sound like BS For years, Donald Trump and his supporters pinned their hopes on the investigation by the former U.S. attorney for Connecticut, John Durham later named special counsel by AG Bill Barr, Trump and his allies arguing it would exonerate him from any hint of improper behavior regarding the Russian government’s attempts to interfere in the 2016 election…" Tapper told his viewers. "The report is now here, it has dropped, and it might not have produced everything of what some Republicans hoped for, [but] it is regardless devastating to the FBI and to a degree, it does exonerate Donald Trump." https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/justice/jake-tapper-durham-report-exonerates-trump
  2. I guess he hasn't already? Like back in 2020? I would just smile and say Florida's election process is near perfect. Now maybe a moderator in a debate throws out the gotcha question or in an interview...actually didn't he get asked that recently....seems like he did and just deflected it.
  3. Trump talking about 2020 is detrimental to him. If I am DeSantis just ignore it and say we are focusing on 2024. Maybe throw in some lines about ensuring the integrity of all elections. Done.
  4. Trumps Truth social reaction to the DeSatis announcement. Are you sure this race is over. This is as incoherent as Biden. “Rob,' My Red Button is bigger, better, stronger, and is working (TRUTH!), yours does not! (per my conversation with Kim Jung Un, of North Korea, soon to become my friend!)," Trump said in the post.
  5. It’s why I am unaffiliated…I don’t get asked for political donations.
  6. My Opinion: Oregon and Washington are going to join, and when enough teams from the ACC revolt so will UVA, NC, Miami, ND and two others out of GT, Stanford, Cal…maybe add Duke and Kansas to the list of others.
  7. Who is to say the Big10 can't get Virginia and North Carolina in addition to Oregon and Washington? Just need teams to break the ACC GOR. Then finish the super conference with Miami, ND, Cal and Stanford.
  8. Reading that AZ and CO to Big12 might be probable. This might just be a way to let the OR, Wash (and the world) know they have a home if the PAC12 implodes soon. This Washington site reported two days ago that Wash and Ore are going to announce they are leaving. It's paywalled though. https://realdawghuskies.com/exclusive-washington-oregon-set-to-announce-departure-from-pac-12/
  9. One Sports radio here in Denver mentioned them joining in 2024 with USC and UCLA. Maybe he was wrong. Seems odd to make an announcement about being vetted. I do not remember seeing that prior to pulling the trigger on USC and UCLA. I wonder what game is being played.
  10. Nice Brittany Griner. From no national anthem before games to appreciative of it. Before Russia: "I honestly feel we should not play the national anthem during our season," Griner said. "I think we should take that much of a stand. After Russia: “Hearing the national anthem, it definitely hit different,” Griner said, via CNN. “It’s like when you go for the Olympics, you’re sitting there, about to get gold put on your neck, the flags are going up and the anthem is playing, it just hits different. … Being here today … it means a lot.”
  11. No. There are other example but I am not wasting my time trying to appease you. It's a press secretaries job to distort reality....But as promised... https://www.cnn.com/2023/05/12/us/title-42-expires-border-immigration-friday/index.html https://www.cnn.com/2023/05/08/us/gallery/us-mexico-border-title-42/index.html My boss is at a family gathering 1 mile from the border in Brownsville, he said its getting tense. https://sanangelolive.com/news/crime/2023-05-12/biden-border-crisis-historic-surge-despite-washington-rhetoric
  12. How about this quote from President Biden? I am glad he agrees with me that our southern border is chaos. Biden said Tuesday the border situation will be "chaotic for a while" as his administration works to restore order — but speaking with reporters the next day on the tarmac at the Westchester County Airport, Biden admitted there has been "chaos at the border for a number of years." "Well, we've had chaos at the border for a number of years," the president said before boarding Air Force One in White Plains, New York. "We have to fully fund the border security effort."
  13. And if it is accurate …what would be your take on it? Do you agree with the statement?
  14. My previous post may help you decide whether this is chum. If I can get the meeting minutes or the official resolution is released to the public, I will let you know. Honestly, there is a lot of news about Colorado education lately that is bothersome.
  15. Googling "Colorado teachers union resolution". Gives a number of hits. One from Complete Colorado who seems to be making an effort to verify it. It's a long rambling read. https://pagetwo.completecolorado.com/2023/05/09/armstrong-colorado-teachers-union-goes-full-socialist/ "Originally, Lindstrom’s draft stated, in part, “The only way to fully address systemic racism (the school to prison pipeline), climate change, patriarchy (gender and LGBTQ disparities), education inequality, and income inequality is to dismantle capitalism and replace it with a new, equitable economic system.” Gee, I wonder what Lindstrom might call that “new” system. Here is the amended resolution as passed by the assembled CEA members: “The CEA believes that capitalism inherently exploits children, public schools, land, labor, and resources. Capitalism is in opposition to fully addressing systemic racism (the school to prison pipeline), climate change, patriarchy (gender and LGBTQ disparities), education inequality, and income inequality.” In Ransom’s words, the CEA representative said the resolution is not “actionable” but that it does “reflect the views of the union’s 39,000 members.” Ransom adds, “That probably comes as a big surprise to the majority of teachers in Colorado, who are likely appalled by the actions of the delegates at the CEA assembly.” I have not seen it reported how many people attended the assembly in question or how many voted in favor of the resolution, but I imagine the number is a tiny fraction of 39,000." I suspect if the union voted on it, it can be found iina union document, but I am not a teacher and am not sure where the CEA publishes this stuff. I might ask some teachers I know. I have a great relationship with quite a few as my kids have been in the system for 12 years now.
  16. Supposedly an educator walked out of the meeting saying they had "had enough". He probably took the photo and leaked it. I should be able to officially find this soon minus the last bullet. Colorado education has been in the news a lot lately.
  17. Wow I had to Google this. I honestly didn't know who Dillion Brooks was. The Grizzlies?
  18. No. I knew that article existed before I posted, but had to find it again. I could have posted others too, but you don't really care. wait until Friday. I will post a Biden "I did that" meme after title 42 expires tomorrow with lots of links about the border for you to digest.
  19. The Colorado teacher union adopted a new resolution. The final draft left of the last part of 5 and 6. Can teachers quit the unions and keep their jobs?
  20. That's interesting. I am around the same age. Mom was also born in 1930 and father in the early 20s. My mom's cousins fought in Nam and I was taught certain realities from the war. I don't remember whether I got that from text books, teachers or family although my history teachers nickname was jungle Jane.... Jokingly of course....She was an incredibly good teacher despite being thought of as too afr left. I would say most of the history I learned came from her or family. Since my dad saw alot in his military travels, I learned about racism at a young age through his stories. ...Certainly only through one his lense. Learned about Rosa Parks, MLK, slavery, associated constitutional ammendments, etc. as one would in school. I make sure my kids do too. They were especially disturbed by the 3/5s of a person wording. Do you think too many kids do not learn about our complex past? I would not want it sugar coated, but I am also watching over what they are taught.
  21. I searched press secretary border and lots of hits came up. She may have not clarified this statement properly, but mentioned illegal immigration being down 90 %. She tries to explain it but not very well. https://www.foxnews.com/media/karine-jean-pierre-roasted-claiming-illegal-immigration-90-people-think-stupid
  22. I am not whining. I am poking the bear. With a smile.
  23. Several years ago I felt Tucker lost it….Became a vengeful conspiracy theorist. Maybe he was always that way, even back at CNN, and just didn’t show it. Man how far he has fallen. He needs a mental health professional. https://www.cnn.com/2023/05/03/media/tucker-carlson-text-message/index.html “A couple of weeks ago, I was watching video of people fighting on the street in Washington,” Carlson wrote in the January 2021 text message to a producer, the New York Times reported late Tuesday. “A group of Trump guys surrounded an Antifa kid and started pounding the living s**t out of him. It was three against one, at least. Jumping a guy like that is dishonorable obviously. It’s not how white men fight. Yet suddenly I found myself rooting for the mob against the man, hoping they’d hit him harder, kill him. I really wanted them to hurt the kid. I could taste it.”
  24. I thought the press secretary continually tells us the southern border is doing great. 1500 troops being sent by the administration. Getting close to an election year I guess. https://apnews.com/article/biden-immigration-troops-southern-border-68ec4d25fb87b41265019a0ffd20a784#:~:text=WASHINGTON (AP) — The Biden,of coronavirus pandemic-era restrictions.
