    If Kathleen Matthews runs for Congress, will Foamy leave his show? Stupid question, I know.

    • Homemaker

      We need you around here. Don’t hold your breath!

    • Larry Kelly

      As long as he doesn’t make a campaign contribution to her, no problemo.

  • Cecelia

    If Gretchen Carlson says she did not intend to say that Allah is not God then why can’t Andrew Kirell accept that as true?

    Her statement can certainly be interpreted that way.

    What’s ironic is that he has no trouble saying that Allah is not God because there is no God, but wants to suggest that Carlson is being disrespectful to other faiths for saying something she says that she was not implying.

    How’s that for faith and generosity toward your fellow man?

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      It’s the typical hypocricy of the self-righteous left.

    • The Real Royal Emperor

      I have no idea what she intended. It was very clumsily done. I’ll accept her at her word, however, since she wasn’t reporting from El Savador, Argentina or Ireland.

      • Cecelia

        I have no idea what that means, but we’re all very relieved.

        • The Real Royal Emperor

          She’s never discredited herself by serial exaggerations of seeing things she never saw.

          • Cecelia

            Oh, I see. You were jabbing the pin into Mike.

          • Ironic, huh?

          • Cecelia

            Predictable.

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

          He made bail, Cece.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      Got half of ’em.

    • Larry Kelly

      6 of 10. I’m not going to make it after all.

    • The Real Royal Emperor

      11/10. I gave myself a bonus for not busting a gut on #10!

      • Cecelia

        One point! Don’t start being hard on yourself now.

        • The Real Royal Emperor

          Toasted you with a red currant scone and clotted cream with coffee this morning.

          • Cecelia

            You may tell me about the Hebrides too.

          • The Real Royal Emperor

            That’s next week. Have to drive to Oban and find a car park.

    • Larry Kelly

      I was quite surprised Mike that RICHARD DIAMOND, private detective show was not used as a question. Mary appeared in most episodes — just her legs.

  • Mr. Bill ended the No Spin News (for premium members) last night with the word “soon” instead of “tomorrow.” So, who’s filling in?

    • gcblues

      mIke, you slew the troll! all hail mike the valiant!!

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        I suspect that the troll couldn’t make bail after being picked up in the Feds’ sweep of those with outstanding warrants for mopery.

        • Cecelia

          Had to look mopery up, N.N.

          Good one!

      • The Real Royal Emperor

        Hi, there. I’m in Cardiff at the moment. No connectivity in the Hop Across to LHR, nor on the journey out the M4/A4. But, I’m sure glad to be reconnected.

        • Homemaker

          I don’t care to hear about your travels unless they are cable related.

          • TheMightyINB

            …or true…

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            He’s in his Walter Mitty mode.

          • The Real Royal Emperor

            I took four elevators at LHR to get to car rental at the Sofitel. Those glitzy, glassy models where you can see the innards …. All had large cables.

      • Jinx!

        • gcblues

          i take the blame with shame. color me out of here. between the troll and the host refusing us the ability to respond properly this place becomes a slum.

          • Larry Kelly

            Unlike most of the Internet communities Doctor Dollor keeps his place from becoming a slum by sending those who cheapen property values with the graffiti of name-calling and gang-war insult assaults to quiet exile. Yeah, stray dogs with bad intentions may occasionally rummage around, but they dare not get in the garbage cans with abandon.

          • gcblues

            oh really? so the troll is never deleted but if i respond accurately calling the troll what the troll is i am deleted. no thanks. look at today’s troll tos post and tell me that again. watch this go poof.

          • Larry Kelly

            I thought you went poof? Watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat. Oops, wrong hat.

          • gcblues

            i said poof so that the troll master would do the opposite.

          • Cecelia

            Very well said.

        • Marty

          It had been reported earlier that a trip was planned. Neither rain nor snow nor vast oceans will keep him away.

          • The Real Royal Emperor

            The Baltimore indictments were the second story on the BBC and ITV, and the third story on Sky. Sky led with the release from the former Duchess of York’s social secretary for murder her male companion. She was released after 14 years on a life sentence. She kept trying to commit suicide, and it sounds to be a compassionate release.

          • Marty

            ?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

          • The Real Royal Emperor

            Interested in comparisons between US and British journalism, US and British cable (ICN is not cable) and foreign coverage of US news. Instructive.

    • Never mind. He’s on. I think he said “soon” because I wouldn’t have time for the NSN due to tonight’s Rockin’ the Boat concert.

      • Did we go all week without a ‘Kelly File’ segment on O’Reilly? I think so. Odd.

        • Yes. I expect her back next week, though.

  • Today’s most popular links:
    5 named to distinguished list
    4 Jake Tapper embroiled
    3 moonlighting
    2 Gretchen Carlson replies
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 Mrs Chris Matthews makes a move.

  • Spotted on twitter: “Powers brings her the left hates free speech promo tour to Greta in taped interview.”
    This is such a blatant lie. Kirsten Powers told Greta that she refers to the ‘illiberal left’ to distinguish them from the left in general who she is not talking about in her book. So some Fox hater skips over that entirely and twists her statement into ‘the left hates free speech’. A lie.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      By the way, her book is a very good read.

    • Larry Kelly

      Who would do such a thing? With knowing nothing more, I bet I could stick my pole in the vast Twitter ocean and catch the suckers within minutes.

      • GATXER

        Well let see….twitter….a.lie about Fox News………person who.clearly didn’t watch show commented on it……I bet the cat it one of the twitter hater stooges……and im pretty sure the cats safe.

    • The Real Royal Emperor

      In fairness, who can tell with Powers? She has more positions than than the Jets, and all about as well-played.

      • Cecelia

        Oh, it’s possible to know precisely what she says. It just takes having actually watched and read her.

        • The Real Royal Emperor

          I did read the book. Her once and for all time conversion is a different sort of experience than I have had or that any of my family and friends in the faith have experienced. For those in the RC, Anglican and Orthodox traditions and several other Chiristian traditions describe. Conversion is daily, even hourly, never ending. Not that hers is wrong or that I doubt it. So, her book was about trying to understand the different and interesting faith experience. I can’t say I paid attention to much else. A bit superficial and self-serving.

          I only see her television appearances on clips. My television machine is programmed. Only viewers under 5 years of age can watch FOX, MSNBC or the Middle.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            Your endless jeremiads prove her points.

          • Cecelia

            She also writes a newspaper column and occasional piece for magazines.

            As with most things, it would likely benefit you to seek some understanding from the under five pop in your household. Couldn’t hurt you anyway.

          • Cecelia

            The difference is probably semantic. In Protestant denominations it is transformation into the likeness of Christ via submission to the Holy Spirit that is ongoing.

            Conversion is the word that defines the initial experience of being enlightened by the Holy Spirit into the recognition of sin, leading to repentance. It’s ongoing aspect is transformation.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            Our so-called betters believe that repentance is for chumps.

          • Cecelia

            Do you mean church hierarchy or are you talking about the secular elite?

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            The secular elite.

          • Cecelia

            Of the two groups, I think Jesus made it clear that self-righteousness among religious folk leads to a heart more intransigent than in irreligious people.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            I wasn’t talking about self-righteousness, I meant those in public discourse that not only have no use for religion, but demand that others think the same.

  • carolr527

    Juliet Huddy is on Kennedy. Long time no see.

  • Bye again.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      Contact Johnny, Mike. The troll promised you never to post again and now is doubling down on his bull excrement. Don’t let him run you away.

      • gcblues

        2 late. the boycott has begun.

        • Cecelia

          Do you run like that from the Turks?

          • gcblues

            Yia Yia handles the Turks,
            i handle the investment political end.

            i am on Mike Cs team.

            might i point out. you are with him, or against him.
            ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
            i coulda been a contender.

            .

          • Cecelia

            I’m a against him which is why I contend rather than run.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            I hope that you mean against the troll and not Mike.

          • Cecelia

            Why would I be against Mike?

            We are very alike in our political opinions and are ideologically militant or tactical in our conduct online.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            I can’t understand how anyone couldn’t like Mike. Except our troll who takes a sadistic glee in making his jabs at him.

          • Cecelia

            Probably because you don’t have a sadistic streak.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            That’s because it is illegal to scalp people who p*ss me off. So, I have to behave.

    Beaver, “Well, it’s sorta hard to describe, but he’s doing it on purpose.”
    Ward, “Eddy, are you trolling the Beaver?”
    Eddy, “Why no Mr. Cleaver, and though you drive wonderfully, you’d be on the wrong side of the road if we were traveling on one of my many trips to Europe.”
