The Wolff Book Proves It: Our Journalists Stink


But Bannon's fall, and the scandal-mongering book that helped it along — Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House — do underscore one thing of real importance: our mainstream journalists are genuinely awful. They will sell any narrative they can to keep from selling the one that seems increasingly likely to be true: Trump is smarter than they are and doing a better job than the last two presidents combined. My bold

Treason - you guys paying attention? Resignation coming, arrests. You own it. Good times.

Posted by: Eric Anderson | 16 May 2017 at 05:45 PM

Paying attention now? Good bye conservatives.

EricA 157pm - Mr Anderson, pray what evidence has been presented for the charge of treason against whom??

Posted by: George Rebane | 30 October 2017 at 02:03 PM

George, I think Trump's top aide Mr. Bannon was referring to the conspiracy meeting Don Jr. held with the Russians at Trump Tower, NYC (there's so many!) May 2016. He was using the popular understanding of Treason like I was. Don't get all pedantic on us about war. There are lots of other examples.

Todd Juvinall

Oh Eric Anderson, you really are demented. Nothing will come of the soap opera crapola. And no collusion no nothing. But keep your handi-wipes ready your wet dreams will never materialize. This is actually the demise of the democrat party as the country now sees how dishonest they are.


Why hasn’t Michael Wolff’s dementia-Trump ever been seen in public?

Washington Examiner, Eddie Scarry

In the book, Trump has an impossibly short attention span, refuses to learn from policy briefs and fails to grasp the fundamentals of U.S. government.

Where was this version of Trump when giving one of his dozens of interviews, hosting his rallies, or delivering public remarks at any point between 2015 and now?

Yes, Trump mostly spoke extemporaneously during the campaign, often repeating words and themes, a phenomenon otherwise known as speaking aloud.

But he’s also delivered dozens of speeches off teleprompters, proving he can actually read, frequently going off-script to offer commentary and then returning to the prepared remarks.

During the campaign, from January to September in 2016, he hosted more than four-and-a-half hours worth of press conferences, compared to Hillary Clinton’s 38 minutes worth.

Here’s an experiment: Put a truly mentally slow older person, like Dana Milbank, for example, on stage in front of reporters to answer a succession of questions for one hour. Then compare it to the multiple times Trump did it, and see who comes out sharpest.

As president, Trump frequently approaches the press pool in order to answer a range of questions, something former President Obama rarely did.

In Wolff’s book, he says Trump is perpetually distracted, can’t train his mind on substance, and couldn’t recognize his own friends.

Contrast that account with the transcript of a 30-minute interview Trump gave at his golf club in Florida on Dec. 28 to the New York Times. It shows him talking at length about the Russia investigation, the threat from North Korea, and immigration. He even interrupts his thoughts to speak with guests he presumably recognizes.

You never see dementia-Trump in public because he only lives in the heads of Democrats and reporters — but I repeat myself — who are desperate to believe, and who are making fools of themselves in the process. -- Glenn Reynolds

George Rebane

Re EricA 151am – There is, of course, no profit to be had in attempting to correct the incorrigible. But readers should be interested in how such folks diminish the info carrying capacity of English and work hard to bring about Newspeak, a version of our language that contracts instead of expands. A prime means of this is taking words with established and precise meanings, and using them in inappropriate contexts to promote an agenda, continue a narrative, or simply exhibit a deficient vocabulary. In this case the lexicographic victim is ‘treason’ that has now also acquired a “popular (mis)understanding”, which therefore removes its use from reasoned conversation.

Treason joins a growing list of words – e.g ‘racist’ and ‘hero’ - whose correct meanings have been lost to almost the entire publicly educated population, and therefore, when used, do nothing but generate waste heat in the public dialogue. There was no treason involved in the Left’s most wildly configured meetings between Team Trump and various Russians. And after two years of investigations, there is yet to be evidence presented or even claimed by the investigating bodies on which to base such allegations. That cannot be said for the DNC and Hillary who actually commissioned intermediaries to generate and introduce fake evidence from Russian sources.


Looks like the NC Scooper is DOA. Well, it was fun while it lasted.
It was sure great to see just how gullible some LIB news outfits really were (and still are). From Terrorists weaponizing ranch dressing(and poaching venison)in N.San Juan, to FED Gov gun confiscation by hired illegal immigrants. ( The two big ones that went viral)
Yes, the Scooper will be missed.

Bill Tozer

@9:31 am

Indeed. Only time I have ever seen my words quoted exactly word for word was in the Scooper. The Scooper will be missed. I once forwarded one of Scooper’s articles about a FEMA truck in town to round us up was in reality a taco wagon. The folks on the East Coast fell for it.....hook, line, and sinker. Added the the crazy California biases they already held.

The Scooper probably did not renew their domain name. Oh well. Gave me lots of laughs in the middle of a sea of downer Dems. Invaluable service to our community.

Domain names are kinda important to renew. Remember that time Low Energy Jeb went to click on his campaign website only to redirected to a big picture of a smiling Trump and Trump’s campaign site. That had me howling. Imagine the Nevertrumpers clicking on Jeb for President and seeing Trump’s smiling mug. Priceless. Jeb should have renenewed his domain name the very millisecond it came up for renewal. A smarter man did. :)

Well, no Scooper, eh? Here, this should make you smile:

“And, finally, now, we have Hillary Clinton dealing with investigations cascading down on her like it’s a bomb cyclone. I think the day is coming soon, Tucker, when we’ll be sending an “I’m With Her” T-shirt to Hillary Clinton’s cellmate”.




Hey, it’s one of our fellow Californians. A true sign of taking the moral high ground..


Bill Tozer

Eric Anderson? That’s not the same Eric that is running HH 88’s campaign for County supervisor, is it? Doubtful. There is an Eric running around these part, but his name is Eric Tozer. No relation to my pen name.


Stephen Miller Rips Wolff Book As ‘Grotesque Work Of Fiction

The Hill

It's tragic and unfortunate that Steve would make these grotesque comments so out of touch with reality and obviously so vindictive and the whole White House staff is deeply disappointed in his comments, which were grotesque,” Miller told CNN’s “State of the Union.”


The Hill

CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday cut off a contentious interview with White House senior adviser Stephen Miller, as the two sparred about President Trump and the news network.


Miller's response did not fit the CNN mime that Trump is unfit.

Russ Steele


Jake Tapper of Fake News CNN just got destroyed in his interview with Stephen Miller of the Trump Administration. Watch the hatred and unfairness of this CNN flunky!

The left wants to talk about mental health: Let’s Start With Theirs.

Michael Savage lays out the case in his book “Liberalism Is a Mental Disorder,”

With grit, guts, and gusto, Michael Savage has made his talk show “The Savage Nation” a must-hear by fearlessly telling it like it is. Night after night, Savage savages today’s rabid liberalism with verve and precision, speaking truths that other public figures are too politically correct or afraid to say. In his book, “Liberalism Is a Mental Disorder,” he lays it on the line: “You will not have a nation,” he says, “unless you awaken to the reality that America has become pacified; America has become feminized; and America is being compromised from without and within. You cannot let them get away with this. Can America be saved? Is it too late? I believe that with God’s will and with your determination to confront the mental disorder of liberalism whenever and wherever it is found, America can both survive and thrive.”

Yes, let's talk about the mental health of the progressive reporters and their failure to recognize reality. Are they qualified to assess the mental health of President Trump? Not from my corner of the room.


Toes 1055am

Speaking of HH for Super, there's a fundraiser being held for her next Month. The theme is "Building Bridges", tickets are being sold online for from $20 to $1000 depending upon how important you think you are.

It's gonna be a big bridge she'll be building 'cause the fundraiser is in Stockton and the election will be in Nevada County.

Bill Tozer

@ 12:54.
Fundraiser in Stockton? I figured it would be in her old stomping grounds of E. Oakland. Shows what I know. I would donate but it cannot be written off my taxes as a charitable contribution. I am saving up for Worldfest and Save the Eel River anyway.


OHHH how this "big guy" would scare the crap out of the local ECO nuts.

My kin sure know how to build things.
(This is the town Great Grandma(On Dad's side) came from)

Don Bessee

Yes BT @ 1259 it does seem her actual constituency is in SF, oaktown and other urban areas, Nevada county not so much love. ;-)


With facts like these, what will LIBs stump on to win an election?
"It is impossible to discount the economic environment that President Trump has fostered through his leadership and actions. His most powerful and impactful tool has been deregulation – which gets the government off of your back and out of your pocketbook. Washington red tape has hindered Americans from achieving the American dream. In the past year, 635 regulations have been withdrawn, 244 were made inactive, and 700 were delayed.

For every new regulation put on the books, 22 have been taken out. Whether it’s green-lighting the Keystone XL pipeline or opening up competition in health care markets across state lines, it is estimated that we have saved $8 billion in federal regulatory costs. These numbers speak for themselves, and we’re just getting started."

So Lefties,, just what do you have? Tax the rich?

Bill Tozer

Wait 6-9 months for the effects of the tax cuts to kick in. But, then again, what goes up, must come down.......eventually. Time will tell, but the trajectory with the tax reform kicking in looks promising. It’s now over 100 companies that are passing out Trump bonuses to employees. A small leak in the dike, or does this portend a tsunami of bonuses sweeping the nation? I don’t have a crystal ball and past performances do not guarantee future results....I love that disclaimer.


FYI the last massage from Pelline was posted to his bog on 1 Jan.

Consider him missing, presumed fed.

Don Bessee

George Rebane

Gregory 253pm - That was a bit cold Mr Goodknight ;-)


Gregory @02:52 PM He wrote in a comment he was a 1,000 mile away, perhaps he is off the communications grid? Perhaps staying someplace powered wind and solar, but the wind is not blowing and sun not shining.

Don Bessee

Gee guys, why couldn't you let a sleeping Dark Lord of Liberal Lament Land..... ;-)


Russ, Jeff woke up, found my comment and had posted his snarky reply at 3:19, just 27 minutes later. So if he was keeping his solar panels where the sun didn't shine, he apparently pulled them out in time to read RR.

George, let me remind you:
"Revenge is a dish best served cold"- olde Klingon proverb


"Missing. Presumed fed." is lifted from the delightful Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy books by the late Douglas Adams. Stolen and used without permission. :)

Let me assure Jeff, who claims to be worried about me, that had I presumed he wasn't fed I would have dropped a 20 piece McNuggets order at his last known location, and a bottle or two of his favorite 2buck chuck varietal to wash it down.


Now, on to the question of the day for Jeff P... can we count on you to buy a $1000 ticket to Hilary Hodge's fundraiser in ... Stockton?

Todd Juvinall

I saw that HH was raising dough in Stockton as well. Now I recall JeffP and his ilk criticizing people they don't like who raised money in another district in Nevada County let alone one 2 hours away. Would we call that hypocrisy?

Don Bessee

Perhaps, but consistent for sure @ 504, ;-)


Free Trump Bashing Book

Wikileaks Publishes Michael Wolff's Entire Sold Out Trump Book As A PDF


Bill Tozer

Speaking of Fats, the unhinged exploding heads are too hilarious. CNN tried to get Trump blocked from Twitter last week because of those violent (gasp) threatening (gasp gasp)tweets concerning the little fat Cabbage Patch Doll running North Korea, the aborable Kim. CNN cried out the tweets broke a whole bunch of Twitter social media rules. CNN and it’s dishonorable discharges wanted Trump blocked from Twitter and his tweets removed and lost into the dust bin of history. He broke the rules!!!


Request denied. Twitter did not block our President, citing it was news and, of course, would never favor any individual and their decision had nothing to do with their revenue stream. Hmmm. Twitter is about 1/10th the size of Facebook and is worth maybe 11 billion. Market analyists figure that Trump’s tweets are worth 2.5 billion to Twitter’s value.

Then the Deplorables had their fun. Everything #FakenewsCNN does blows up in their faces. Maybe Trump’s button is bigger. I will spare the reader all but one response.

If President Trump Is Mentally Unstable, Let’s Hope It’s Contagious

The latest obsession of the mainstream media and other leftists is questioning the President’s mental health. Allow me to suggest that If they are correct and the President is mentally unstable it’s not necessarily a bad thing. In fact, if having a screw loose makes people as successful as Donald Trump was during the past eleven and a half months, we should pray it’s contagious and that everyone in Congress and the federal bureaucracy catches it (and save some of it for me).

Lonely old men.

Well, Jeff, based on what you look like up close, it appears to me (and others) you are 58 (your calendar age) going on 75. And, golly, for the last week no one bothered you at your bog blog... lonely? I think you are projecting ... again.

No, Greg, I'm doing fine. You don't seem to have much going on in your life, however. You are living in the past, not the future or even the present.

Golden Globes.
Boy, last year it was all about not enough persons of color winning enough awards. Big stink. This year it’s all about women in the workforce and their bad bosses’ behavior, known primarily as males. Last year it was about bad whities and their white privilege, this year all about bad males. Collectively, that means white males are moving targets with bounties on their scalps. Needless to say on this site we already knew that and have been ahead of the curve, per usual.

Gotta feel sorry for BLM. The women folk have pushed them to the back of the bus,
again! And all this time I was saying race trumps gender. I was wrong. Gender trumps race....at least during The Reckoning. If Mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody going to be happy, be you Red, white, black, yellow, or green.

Bill Tozer

Oh Gregory
I, for one, refuse to give that site my traffic, but I enjoy the reports from the Grand Narcissist, the Dark Lord of the Dark Land Of Lament.

Lonely old men, eh? I can let that one ride. Before he blows up Dr. Rebane’s in box and phone telling George to make them stop...or else, I will go out on a limb and praise the steaming pile. That person provides shade all summer, warmth all winter, and moving pictures year round. Hard to be lonely with him around.

He will deal with me later. ;).

I don’t know if this one takes the cake, but it sure is in the running to win something.

“Now Flores is saying her injuries are the school's fault because the school knew about the protest and supported it, and failed to tell Flores and her fellow students to rethink their idea of blocking traffic on one of the San Diego area's busiest thoroughfares, as though the idea wasn't clearly terrible from the beginning.”

I don't buy leftwingnut books so Wolf won't get my money. Besides George Boardman did a few snippets from it and he apparently believes it.


Love it.. "The book" is as credible as the peepee papers.
Next week you will find it in the fiction section or the bargain. bin.

Bill Tozer

The book appears to have about the same credibility as the dossier. You know the dossier. It’s that paper funded by My Gal Hill whose contents was comprised of information fed to Steele by Russian agents of the former KGB. That Russian propaganda which comprised the dossier was received by a sitting President as an excuse to spy on the political campaign of a political opponent. There is the Collusion, neatly laid out for all to see.
However, instead of being a bigger story than Watergate and the Pentegon Papers combined, the Russian Collusion with our government via the Democrat Party campaign is drawing crickets from fakenews MSM. Strike that. The Collusion with agents of the Russian government with one political party in power to wiretap political opponents is not being covered by Fraudnews MSM. Not fakenews, it’s fraudnews.

About the book, Bannon was not even at the meeting. Trump did not want to win? Ok, whatever you say, Lefties.


Todd Juvinall

Even Rush Limbaugh says the part in the book is fabricated about him and Laura Ingrahm at Roger Ailes funeral. Looks like it is "Dossier" TWO!


Has Bobby found the gorrilla channel yet? Must have,, no post from him since.

Well, we can try Fast and Furious again. If at first you don’t succeed........

I remember this one. The anti-gun wacko Chicago “journalist” tried to prove how easy it was to buy a gun in the land of mutitude gun laws. Liberal to the max, self proclaimed leader of the Enlightened Ones. Not only did his attempt fail, it was revealed to the public the reason why was because the “journalist” is a wife beating drunk. Oppps. Everything they do blows up in their faces. Acme Rents all, over again...or is that deja vu all over again?


Bill Tozer

Words and meanings. Yes, we have circled this barn before. As Dr. Rebane pointed out in a recent reply, the words “treason” and “Hero”are being ballyhooed and tossed about deeds and events that once were considered ordinary under the sun. Even firing up a snow plow to clear the streets after a weekend storm is now a “crisis”.

Has anyone else noticed how the word “Crisis” is being applied to just about everything since the Age Of Degrangement Syndrome as arrived? Climate Change is now called Climate Crisis, Trump’s tweets are now a crisis, and......well, you get the idea. Dilution is the solution, I reckon.

DonB 205pm - Since there are thousands of talented foreigners waiting to immigrate, who are anything but embarrassed to become Americans, perhaps there is a way to induce their better angels to convince them to finally move out, as you suggest, and make room for the more deserving and grateful.

Bill Tozer

The unstable unhinged psychotic members of our mainstream Fraudmedia are the last persons on earth to be considered even remotely qualified to evaluate Trump’s eccentricities.
The exploding heads have been going stark raving insane since before and after the Inauguration. It’s just more proof the the only thing the Russian Collusion points to is Russian intelligent agents from the Kremlin feed (sold, lol) propaganda via Steele to Hillary Clinton, the DNC, John McCain, the FBI, Susan Rice, and President Obama. All packaged and paid for paid by Hillary Rodman Clinton, the DNC, and the FBI. Russiagate never got out of the gate. Time to try another coup attempt from a different angle.

“Among those struggling to accept the fact that the American people elected Donald Trump in 2016, the 25th Amendment has been a go-to fantasy for a while, particularly among those who strongly dislike Trump’s less-interventionist foreign policy. Eliot Cohen reached for it in the very first week of the presidency.

Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker waited until February 10 to say that the cabinet should use that amendment’s provisions since Trump is “so incompetent — or not-quite-right” that he poses a threat. Perhaps most famously, New York Times‘ conservative columnist Ross Douthat went hard for the 25th Amendment solution to what ails him in mid-May.

Even as various journalists and media outlets admitted the book was false, that it had made-up quotes and anecdotes, and that it didn’t grasp basics of the Trump White House, they said they believed it was fake, but accurate.

At the same time, media leaders of the movement to oust Trump used a book by an academic who has been ranting and raving about Trump and mental fitness for more than a year. She claimed to meet with Democrats and a Republican senator (it turned out she had embellished that last part) to discuss Trump’s fitness. This was used for segment after media segment discussing the same.”

Hmmmm. Fake but accurate? Remove by force if necessary??? The whole Fakenews Fraudmedia needs one big psychological evaluation to see if they have a brain. Strike that. Perhaps Dr. Ben Carson wii perform his talents for us his and tell us if they even posses a brain organ before wasting time on a psyc evaluation.

I'm not sure what the pinchy-pinchy thing is all about, maybe he's just making sure that the goods are young and tender enough. President-elect Oprah appears fine with the situation.

I rather liked this article:


To be fair, I don't think of the goons as being particularly racist. The FCC guy isn't a member of a preferred ethnicity and thus no actions can be thought of as racist. The best part here is that it shows the Green Libertarians in all their glory. The main point is to push civil disruption and violence right up to the point where the target can do something about it, but no further. The best case scenario is that the subject of the mob pushes back just a smidge in the presence of a cell phone camera.

Triple bonus points for putting a Green Libertarian child or older fishwife in a precarious situation. If something bad happens to them, you've got the Nazis right where you want them. It's not dissimilar to the Palestinian habit of attacking Israelis with rock-throwing children rather than armed military-age men.

Bill Tozer

Good read. Can parlay this to several issues and current events.

Check this out from Trumps spiritual guru

Paula White is chairwoman of Trump’s evangelical advisory committee

"Paula White, a prosperity gospel preacher with close ties to President Donald Trump, is calling on followers to send her donations of up to one month’s salary. Those who don’t pay up could face “consequences” from God as he demands the dough as a “first fruits” offering.

“The reason is God lays claim to all firsts,” White wrote on her website. “So when you keep for yourself something that belongs to God you are desecrating what is to be consecrated to God.”

In this case, the “firsts” are money, which “supernaturally unlocks amazing opportunity, blessing, favor and divine order for your life.”

Social Justice in 2018.
Reading through some lefty journals the past couple of weeks, I came across a most interesting and wonderful backhanded compliment intended to say Republicans have not evolved, shipwrecked in the past, and have not kept up with real social justice. Akin to saying we are living in Mayberry RFD.

A writer quoted an expert saying that Republicans are stuck in Martin Luther King’s “color blind society” of the past and have not advanced as the true Enlightened Ones have. The Republicans believe in judging folks by the content of their character and all that old fashioned out dated ideas.
The contempary up to speed real social justice warriors view real social justice through the lens of the debilitating legacy of white privilege and it’s lasting roadroad to true advancement in every nook and corner.

Well, if Republicans are being critiqued, critized, and accused of seeking a colorblind society, then I can live with that intended barb of disparagement I won’t loose any sleep over my arrested development. In fact, it made me smile. How marvelously Irredeemable.

Told ya they have been throwing Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr under the bus on campuses. His dream was too limited in scoop, much too shortsighted. Dr. king is just another person with arrested development, I reckon.


Speaking of social justice, Trump has done wonders. By the current numbers unemployment is getting close to zero.(until the change from U3, back to the old U6... or somewhere inbetween)
As Ronald Reagan said, "The greatest social program is giving one a job."
Even minority unemployment is at record lows.

Bill Tozer

Another one with arrested development:

“(Frederick) Douglass argued for identifying with America—with the nation founded on “human brotherhood and the self-evident truths of liberty and equality.” He saw that the protection of specific groups or classes would lead government away from protecting individual rights and towards assigning benefits and burdens. “I know of no rights of race,” he said, “superior to the rights of humanity.”



DB 1226

The original article specifies the obvious... the professor has a PhD in Math Education, not Math, and teaches in a college department of Secondary Education. I will give her a hat tip to having a Bachelors in Math from a decent liberal arts college, Haverford. She also taught high school for a time.

In other words, she probably does have a profound knowledge of K-12 mathematics and at least can do the math herself, even if she has a warped view of why white boys (and honorary white boys like certain Asian boys and girls) do better in math than certain protected classes of students in the US. Social Justice Warriors at work.

Bill Tozer

Oberlin College in the news again.

“In response to Title IX guidelines issued by the Obama administration, colleges and universities implemented disciplinary proceedings curtailing due process protections — such as the presumption of innocence, access to exculpatory evidence and the right to cross-examine one’s accuser — for students accused of sexual misconduct.”


The Trump administration repealed the rule in September.


Paul Emery

What doew this mean to you Walt?

paula White writes:

"“The reason is God lays claim to all firsts,” White wrote on her website. “So when you keep for yourself something that belongs to God you are desecrating what is to be consecrated to God.”

In this case, the “firsts” are money, which “supernaturally unlocks amazing opportunity, blessing, favor and divine order for your life.”

Of course she's the one who receives the"firsts entitled to God. The""First "refers to your first months salary.

This is Trumps gal raders.



Now that the GPS docs have been outed, this shows up.
"“He wants to be very careful to protect his sources,” attorney Josh Levy said during the Aug. 22 Senate Judiciary Committee interview of his client. “Somebody's already been killed as a result of the publication of this dossier and no harm should come to anybody related to this honest work.” "

So whoever got snuffed had it coming? "Honest work" my ass.

Maybe someone can track down just who got offed. I have yet to find it.(he/she/ whatever.)


So what Paul? I bet you say some crazyass things dancing naked in the middle of the night down at the river. Who made you chief inquisitor to judge?

TURDS alert @ 526-


Many American businesses are already crying foul, concerned that the loss of foreign workers will force them to raise wages to make jobs more attractive to native workers. Some are even threatening to shrink their businesses rather than raise wages, a classic sign of uncompetitive behavior that economists call “monopsonistic.”

Don’t eat romaine lettuce. California is one the list. Who eats weeds anyway?

Well Walt if you like Trump are attracted to those who preach the Prosperity Gospel that's your choice and who am I to judge. Mandating the donation of ones first month's salary to her church is what Paula White requires for salvation.


Yaa?? So? State taxes may be declared "charitable contributions".
At least with her, there is a choice.


OHHH NOOo.. He's not going to sucker people again.
Once was bad enough.

Repub? And Paul is the Pope.

Now let me get this straight. If the carbon tax in WA state fails, the salmon are going to die and the hills will be set ablaze. If the carbon tax passes, the salmon are going to die and the hills will be set ablaze. Darned if you do, darned it you don’t. Of course they throw in that line about helping the po folk, just like CA, lol. Higher gas and utility prices helps the po and new state agencies and regulators, not so much the salmon or hillsides. It’s for the children...rightttt.

“If Inslee’s carbon tax plan passes, the legislation would have no measurable impact on projected future global warming. Indeed, even if the U.S. as a whole stopped emitting, the impact would be extremely small, based on government climate models.”



Couple more Reps go all Seppuku over child perv accusations,,,

Punchys grasp of theology is as tenuous as that of politics and economics.

Fish. Many moons ago when I was first sobering up, I was out of state and saw Betty Ford with her clean cut relaxed Secret Service guy walk into a building. So, having nothing else going on, I followed. It was some convention going on, absolutely free to folks like me. I sat down and this Baptist preacher got and gave his story about his drunken past. Amazing. Became a preacher late in life after turning his life around and looking back on trail of destruction he left in his wake. Very funny guy.
He said “If God was really speaking to Jimmy Swaggart, don’t you think He would have said, “Jimmy, don’t pick up that hoe, there’s a police car in your rear view mirror.” That had the place roaring and probably the first time I had laughed in months. Spoke my language. We are but bronze statues with feet of clay.

Way off topic, but I said this once only before and I I’ll say it again. God did not open the Gates of Hell to toss me in. God opened the Gates of Hell to let me out.

Charlatans are a dime a dozen.

To add clarity to Dr. Rebane’s comment on 9, Jan. conncerning preferred ethnicities:

Hmmm, in 716am we learn that racism can only be practiced against members of a "preferred ethnicity". Glad that's now cleared up.

The homies aint havin' in-




Pelline is lonely enough at his bog that has been all but abandoned by his adoring fans that he's written a letter to The Union to complain about George Boardman... and is arguing with former fan Greg Zaller on The Union's facebook comment stream following the letter.

You can't make this stuff up! LOL!
