Leonard killed his career for standing for the National Anthem, his playing time went to next to nothing after he stood. This was just the nail in his coffin to his career.

That is most likely true but as an american I respect him for standing. His brother is in the military and many veterans have been injuried & died for this country. Meyers Leonard has more courage than the whole nba combined.

I detest Andrew Cuomo, mainly because of all the nursing home patients he allowed to become infected with the Chinese Virus who subsequently died. (Not dissimilar to what happened here in Pennsylvania; my mother died as the "pandemic" and its subsequent unscientific policies unfolded.) Andrew, like his CNN weightlifting bro, is also an obnoxious blowhard and a rabid leftist. But -- all these women stepping forward have accused Cuomo of nothing more than flirting, maybe ham-handed at times, but nothing close to sexual assault much less rape. It's really just another assault on heterosexuality and men being the initiator of "moves" on women, which was always the case all through history until recent years and the advent of hate-filled toxic feminism. "Social distancing" and the war against masculinity is nothing less than a war against everything healthy about being alive and being a man.

Well said Don. I dislike Cuomo as well. For me I will never cease to be amazed on how quickly the left cannibalizes itself. Less than a year ago Cuomo was being lauded as a "leader" for this stance on the "pandemic" - I think he even won an emmy award (not that it means anything to us but to the self-congratulatory, virtue signaling leftists its a big deal). I'll be honest I thought during the early months of the "pandemic" with the way the media was treating him they were going to try to get him into the presidential election (and felt he would of had a fighter's shot at Trump in a legal election) as the democratic candidate since their pool of leftists was down right pathetic (before they trotted out Biden to be the empty suit to be awarded the stolen election). To see them now come after him is comical but also scary for all the reasons you stated above regarding the rabid lunatic feminism that is omnipresent in society. I think this is more of a political hit job on Cuomo so he does not challenge Kamala Harris in 2024 - the fact that she was polling at 1% in during the primaries but is now likely to become the next president (probably before Biden's term is up) is down right scary. This country has begun it's descent down a very steep slope since the current administration took office.

1. Illegal Immigration is through the roof
2. The anti-white vitriol is at an all time high
3. The bogus "Covid 19" stimulus bill to go along with the "pandemic" and impending forced vaccinations required to live a "normal" life.
4. All of the three letter agencies attack on the normal and decent - people who opposed and questioned election outcomes. Look how much energy is being invested into the January 6th protests while nothing is done but appeasement and allowance of riots, destruction and death as long as it falls under the communist banner of BLM: https://www.politico.com/news/2021/03/12/prosecutors-capitol-riot-investigation-475505

I have to agree on this one. Soon just looking at a woman will be considered harassment. Some have suggested that this story has been pushed to distract attention from what he did regarding the nursing homes.

One result of this classification of what is really normal behavior as harassment is that men are becoming reluctant to hire, work with or promote women because of concerns of being falsely accused. That isn't helping women.

I forgot to mention the deflection of the nursing home covid death count in my post. Thanks for pointing that out!

Judge at Derek Chauvin murder trial to make key rulings Friday
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
The defense attorney has asked for a delay of trial ( a mistake as far as I'm concerned - each day that goes by gets closer to riot season). He has also asked for a change of venue (maybe late but may be procedural). If he doesn't get the change of venue he should proceed with the trial as fast as possible in my view. The jury selected in my view also stinks. Very little chance facts are going to have anything to do with the way these people look at the case.

Gentlemen, This is a poem by Rudyard Kipling. The language is a bit stilted for our time but I'm sure you can work through it. The words flow in their prose and rhyme when they have to. It also makes sense, common sense that is. Enjoy.

The Gods of the Copybook Headings




AS I PASS through my incarnations in every age and race,
I make my proper prostrations to the Gods of the Market Place.
Peering through reverent fingers I watch them flourish and fall,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings, I notice, outlast them all.

We were living in trees when they met us. They showed us each in turn
That Water would certainly wet us, as Fire would certainly burn:
But we found them lacking in Uplift, Vision and Breadth of Mind,
So we left them to teach the Gorillas while we followed the March of Mankind.

We moved as the Spirit listed. They never altered their pace,
Being neither cloud nor wind-borne like the Gods of the Market Place,
But they always caught up with our progress, and presently word would come
That a tribe had been wiped off its icefield, or the lights had gone out in Rome.

With the Hopes that our World is built on they were utterly out of touch,
They denied that the Moon was Stilton; they denied she was even Dutch;
They denied that Wishes were Horses; they denied that a Pig had Wings;
So we worshipped the Gods of the Market Who promised these beautiful things.

When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace.
They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "Stick to the Devil you know."

On the first Feminian Sandstones we were promised the Fuller Life
(Which started by loving our neighbour and ended by loving his wife)
Till our women had no more children and the men lost reason and faith,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "The Wages of Sin is Death."

In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all,
By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul;
But, though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "If you don't work you die."

Then the Gods of the Market tumbled, and their smooth-tongued wizards withdrew
And the hearts of the meanest were humbled and began to believe it was true
That All is not Gold that Glitters, and Two and Two make Four
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings limped up to explain it once more.

As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man
There are only four things certain since Social Progress began.
That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
And the burnt Fool's bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire;

And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!

I'm a fan of Rudyard Kipling. He called it for sure. Prescient.

During the little bit I watch cable TV, I see regular commercials for the incredibly unfunny and untalented Trevor Noah, who took over The Daily Show from Stephen Colbert, or was it Jon Stewart, hardly matters. I've yet to see a commercial where Noah's promoted "jokes" were remotely funny so have to assume his show is even more unwatchable. Noah is from South Africa, half Black half Jewish, so he obviously has the longest leash in TV history.

Another incredibly unfunny host who must have superb connections is Seth Meyers, who comes on at 12:30 on NBC. I watch a lot of Jeopardy on my local NBC affiliate and don't turn on the TV again until late at night, and every single time I did until January 20th, Meyers was ripping on Donald Trump non-stop, and none of it was remotely funny. That apparently was the entire reason for the existence of his show. Another talentless communist hack.

Colbert is another commie, but at least has some talent. But now pushing 60, his frenetic frat boy shtick became a joke on him years ago. He's yet another White "male" whose entire reason for existing is to attack Trump.

All the late night hosts except Noah are White men, and all of them are uniformly extreme leftists. What a surprise.

There's never been a President more open for jokes, satire and ridicule than Joe Biden, but in the unitary system with all institutions melded together into one pathetic "too big to fail" piece of shite, Biden is treated like Stalin was by the Soviet press. All hail the doddering fool, the USSA's Boris Yeltsin.

When Stalin stood up to begin a speech, everybody would applaud on and on. They were all afraid to be the first to stop clapping. So they would ring a bell that signaled the audience could stop clapping so Stalin could begin his speech. I think you can find it (Google Stalin speech buzzer) on youtube. The expression on Stalin's face was priceless. It's not far from this in the USA. You never hear the term "It's a free country" anymore , do you?

We used to make fun of communist countries because they could only whisper truths, if even then. We denounced them because of their muscular female athletes in the Olympics, their women in the military, and on and on.

Everything from my youth that was attributed to communist countries has now come to the U.S. But don't worry, the Republicans and establishment conservatives will yet come to the rescue as gradualism is never named much less opposed.

The jurors are: A multi-race woman in her 20s, a multi-race woman in her 40s, two Black men in their 30s, a Black man in his 40s, a Black woman in her 60s, four white women in their 50s, a white woman in her 40s, a white man in his 30s, two white men in their 20s, and a white woman in her 20s.

The judge will keep 14 jurors, including two alternates. Before deliberations, the remaining alternates will be dismissed.
This is in the Minneapolis Star Tribune today. This is the jury for the Derek Chauvin case. The guy is up the creek without a paddle. There is no way that judge shouldn't have ranted a change of venue. Such is the sad state of our court system. How can anyone think that is a jury of Chauvin's peers?

Don you forgot another late night talk show host that only existed to bash Trump, Samantha Bee. Show called “full frontal” fortunately not of her. I don’t know if it’s still on. I would catch a few snippets during commercials. Unfunniest bitch ever.

concerning old Uncle Joe, I think them laying off is different then say the way they did for Obama, for Obama it was because they worshipped him. With Joe I think it’s pity. It would be like making fun of the retarded kid. Plus he’s liable to kick off at any time and they would be stuck with jokes about the dearly departed.

I know who Samantha Bee is but have never watched her show. I've never watched Trevor Noah's show for that matter either but see the unfunny commercials for it often.

Bill Burr and a very few others are the only genuinely funny comedians left.

I've seen more than a handful of such commercials now and they are never funny, never clever, and completely illogical fake news. He's insufferable.

They are all unfunny tv hosts who are at the helm of shows that are probably all in decline. It’s really just another sign of a nation that’s in decline.

Tucker tonight used the term “ shut it down” when mocking the New York Times. He might take heat for this hilarious dog whistle.

Oi vey. I wonder who that could possibly offend? The hand ringing must have been hot and heavy last night over their Manischewitz.

From my lifetime I recall Nixon being the butt of jokes from comedians to situational comedies having story lines about Watergate and the Vietnam war.

Ford was mocked for his clutzyness after he stumbled on the stairs of Air Force One and another time he hit a playing partner with a golf ball on a sliced ball. For the younger posters Ford is probably the most athletic president ever as he was a blue chip NFL prospect who ignored the NFL to get into business.

Carter wasn't mocked but his brother was openly mocked for being the crazy redneck stereotype similar to My name is Earl.

Reagan was mocked for being an ex actor and for being half out of it.

Bush Sr, was mocked for going back on his words about raising taxes and his mild Texas drawl.

Clinton was open for being mocked for his womanizing, lying, obesity and his redneck accent. His wife at the time was mocked too for being power hungry and having an image of Marie Antoinette.

Bush Jr, was mocked for the second war against Sadam and his drawl too, plus the economy tanking in his second term.

I don't recall Obama being mocked for anything(we know why), he was positively portrayed as Superman.

Of course Trump was mocked for everything and his wife was mocked too for her being a European model and was portrayed as an air head.

So far Joe who is open to being mocked for being a wind up doll isn't even mocked for that...

Well the MSM is run by Marxists and saddled with Marxist journalists. So any time a Republican is President then they are harsh, mocking and unprofessional. Whenever a Demoncrat holds office, they are treated with kiddie gloves - bonus points if black. Simply put, MSM does not do their jobs. They are no longer journalists; they are activists. They have been for quite a while but now are even more brazen than ever.
