    “Seek truth. Break news. Hold the powerful accountable.”
    yadda yadda yadda 🤡

    • Grandpa D

      That quote looks great in a ‘Mission Statement’, college textbook, commencement speech or other places no one gives any attention.

    • Cecelia

      (Unless they’re Democrats)

      • gcblues

        no exclusive domain there sis, think Breitbart is seeking truth?

        • Cecelia

          I think Breitbart is an ideological aligned org and out about it.

          It was snark, bro.

          • Larry Kelly

            I still refuse to cry uncle.

          • Cecelia

            I sh’aunt either.

          • gcblues

            going down with the donald ….so unnecessary. que lastima.

  • gcblues
    • Happy?

      • gcblues

        Not really a happy or sad thing to me. Things change, it is good to keep an eye on it, but i am not of the mind set that cultural change is loss. The snark is for bitter enders that want to go back to the “good old days”. Not all of which were bad, they are just gone.

        • Cecelia

          I don’t care if the majority pop. Is Red Hispanic half-removed.

          They just need to move here legally and our incentives need to encourage that.

          • gcblues

            agreed. there are many holes to plug, holes to make. there is little logic in what is going on today.

          • Larry Kelly

            As long as they can take an order for chicken in english or pantomime.

          • Cecelia

            And ain’t here for a check.

          • Larry Kelly

            Or cash under the table.

          • gcblues

            stay away from florida, north carolina and california, oh and NM, Texas …..oh well you had just as well forget about it. ever ask a Latina what she thinks of abortion? well maybe you will die before needing the most used language in Americas. just be thankful it is not Portuguese or Chino…. but they are gaining on ya too.

          • Cecelia

            I have a feeling gringoes will be just fine.

            That fact is what considered to be the problem.

          • gcblues

            any old torch will do for them i guess.

          • Cecelia

            The only torch I see is the plaintive suitor one you hold for the U.S.

          • gcblues

            silly, there are no good governments.

          • Larry Kelly

            I got my chicken. Finger lickin’ good too.

          • gcblues

            Luckily, the Founders did not have that attitude.

          • Cecelia

            The Founders respected structure and law.

          • gcblues

            lolol. read jeff’s notes from the 1st continental congress and get back to me.,,,, pay particular attention to his thoughts on the tyranny of government and the right to not obey “tyrannical” laws that contradict man’s natural right to liberty then refer to the IRS booklet you are sent with each filing. you live in an animal farm where you have no rights to your property, privacy or finances. The founder would not put up with your &*^&*^&*) law that should be so respected. you picked the wrong country try Germany maybe. The founders know breaking immoral laws is an obligation of man, generic. to break, fight back, ignore and despise bad law is the basis of the USA. .

            I’m fine as frog hair, thank you. I’m always up early no matter what time I go to bed.

  • Cecelia

    Would Stelter have anything to talk about on Twitter or his CNN show if he wasn’t playing Chicken Little over some sort of designated thought or speech crime?

    At least when Howie hosted the show, the name Reliable Sources designated an interest in media professionalism. Stelter makes it a foregone conclusion that the MSM is reliable and the bedrock of the universe, in order for his show to focus on ginned-up threats to media liberal advocates.

    • Mitch Alan

      Stelter is just Zucker’s sock puppet. Stelter does whatever Zucker Punch demands.

  • Minnesota Nice

    How ironic that Judge Judy is going to be on Fox News with a People’s Court lawyer.

    • Larry Kelly

      Time for Wapner?

      • Minnesota Nice

        That’d be cool. He was the first no nonsense and original reality TV judge.

        • Larry Kelly

          Too bad he’s dead.

          • Minnesota Nice

            Just back in February @ 97. (Yeah, I searched)

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            Then cross him off of the list.

  • Tom_Ohio

    Who will be the wine-taster of the sour grapes in the Hillary Clinton novel of “”woe” is me ?”
    I hope someone here can do it, I am not going to waste any time with any main stream media reviews.
    So, everyone who wants to review this book take one step forward
    Cut scene: * everyone but Larry steps back one step
    Thank you for volunteering , we all appreciate it Larry !

    • Cecelia

      We’ve got good alternates between the “bless their hearts” snark of Minnesota, and the “forget about it” short-order burial policy of N-N.

      • Minnesota Nice

        Wait what? 😉

        • Larry Kelly

          Don’t ask questions. It was nice. In a Minnesota sort of way.

          • Minnesota Nice

            Oh yeah you betcha.

          • Cecelia

            Bless your heart.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        Yeah, I really don’t care about anything that Felonia von Pantsuit has to say.

        • Cecelia

          No kiddin’

    • Larry Kelly

      I might get it. Maybe she’ll say why she wanted to be president and what she would have done if elected? Not revealed in campaign.

      • Cecelia

        And maybe she’ll blame everyone and their brother.

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

          I think that you hit the nail on the head, Cece.

        • Minnesota Nice

          This week I read that she now blames Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden. I guess her previous claims to everyone and their brother wasn’t specific enough. 😉

          • Cecelia

            Biden is wishing he had electorally made her a victim.

  • Cecelia

    The Five beat Tucker?

    • Tucker was a best-of. The Five was a new show (both were pre-taped).

      • Cecelia

        Still.

    • Minnesota Nice

      I really like the Five, but not a fan of pre-taped editions, as I suspect it was likely taped last Friday. I understand why, as the regulars need time off as well. I personally would like if they did all guest hosts and a new live show based on days or weekend events for a Monday holiday show.

      • Cecelia

        They came in second to a live Maddow.

        • Minnesota Nice

          Wow, surprised MS/NBC was live at that time.

          • Cecelia

            Maddow wasn’t live?

          • Minnesota Nice

            I don’t know. I replied based on your “They came in second to a live Maddow”

          • Cecelia

            Well, if she wasn’t I’ll feel a lot better.

          • I think it’s highly unlikely Maddow was live at 9pm. MSNBC was already running pre-taped shows that afternoon.

          • Cecelia

            I don’t know whether to feel better for Tucker or not.

          • sky303

            MSNBC was taped that evening like FNC was…

  • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

    Leslie Van Houten approved for release by the Parole Board. If approved by the Governor, she will live with her nephew, Milhouse.

    • carolr527

      I don’t think Gov. Brown will approve her parole.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        I doubt that any Governor would pardon a member of the Manson Family.

  • Minnesota Nice

    Thoughts and prayers for those impacted by Hurricane Irma. (Still praying for Harvey folks as well).
