Clay Travis: Most sports fans want to enjoy the games, but ‘far-left’ activists are ruining them


https://www.foxnews.com/media/clay-travis-sports-far-left-activists-black-lives-matter

Discuss

That quote sounds so stupid I’m not gonna read the accompanying story.

My choice as well.   While twits contemplate far-Left boogeymen,  there are real death threats and incitements of violence coming from the redneck Right in Georgia, directed at election workers.

Michigan


One witness, Mellissa Carone, was contracted by Dominion voting machines to provide IT support in Detroit and told the committee how she was forced to watch as election officials added the same batches of ballots to the final tally over and over again.





hmmm....


Oh, Prunella!

Redward:  Asking that people be free from oppression doesn't make you an anti-Semite.   Please make a responsible attempt to post more than quoted angry tweets.   

Also,  sometime,  look up the situation in Gaza with potable drinking water.   It's time for humane decent people in Israel to speak up to their government on the matter.
You may want to research the Tlaib tweet.

Why?

Because he has no real argument.

Some of the testimony is... just plain bizarre.


Bizarre as in untrue?  Please - we're listening.

Panel seems less interested in fairness than the panel in AZ was.

If you are listening, then you will hear them yourself.

I wouldn't want to spoil the plot for you.

AZ hearing was quite compelling Bull shit from a to z. It.was not even a hearing, just a few far right snowflakes meeting in a hotel bawlroom.  Board The crybaby losers want the governor to allow a special session.

Havent had the time to look at today yet, which is why I asked you to expand on your thoughts.

NYTs with an interesting piece on Trump's legal ace, and recent Elba Trump forum punch line, Jenna Ellis.

Only the best for Trump

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/12/03/us/politics/jenna-ellis-trump.html?action=click&module=Top%20Stories&pgtype=Homepage

...But a review of her professional history, as well as interviews with more than a half-dozen lawyers who have worked with her, show that Ms. Ellis, 36, is not the seasoned constitutional law expert she plays on TV.

In many ways, that makes her ideal for the role she has now fashioned for herself: She is a star player in the president’s theater of grievance and denial whose lack of relevant experience with the legal questions at hand has had no apparent bearing on her ability to present herself as someone of great authority.

Michael Flynn should be court-martialed for his acts of sedition, as well as charged in the regular courts.

He's going to need a new pardon... and just imagine the Law and Order reactions to a pardon for sedition.

You want sick? Here's sick:

Quote
Legal advocates tasked by a federal judge with helping to find migrant families separated at the U.S. border in 2017 and 2018 say that after months of pleas, the government last week handed over new data that could be critical to helping them find the families.

In a federal court filing in California late Wednesday, the lawyers said Justice Department data from the Executive Office of Immigration Review, which includes information for parents and children in immigration court proceedings, was released to them last week.

"Among other things, the information includes phone numbers that had not previously been known," the lawyers said in the filing.

"Law and Order"

The folks like Kid have been complaining about how China deceived us, while giving Trump a pass on his equally active, death-causing deception of America.

Well, here's some of where Trump's "leadership" took America:

The Senate Judiciary Committee is preparing to vote on a judge to fill the seat vacated by Supreme Court Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett, as well as several other seats on lower courts, allowing President Donald Trump to continue shaping the courts, Fox News reports.

The panel will vote Thursday on whether to appoint Thomas L. Kirsch II, the current U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Indiana, to the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. They will also vote on Charles Edward Atchley Jr. and Katherine A. Crytzer, who were both nominated to serve as judges for the Eastern District of Tennessee, on Joseph Dawson III’s nomination for the District of South Caolina, and on Zachary Somers for the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.



There are three current or upcoming vacancies on appeals courts and 59 on district and specialty courts, along with 35 nominations currently pending.

“People focus less on district courts because they decide cases rather than make legal precedent,” said Curt Levey, the president of the Committee for Justice, a “constitutionalist” nonprofit. “But we have seen rogue district judges impose national injunctions during the Trump administration. They can make it difficult for a president and slow the administration of justice. What district courts do matter. A Trump-appointed district judge will be very different from a Biden-appointed district judge.”


Every minute the Semate does anything but pass the House Covid relief package is another murder hanging on the neck of Mitch McConnell. The clock on those minutes started months ago.

There isn’t a grave deep enough for Moscow Mitch.

On matter of Freedom, Liberty, Oppression, and Slavery, Red hues as close as he can to the role of Calvin Candie in Django Unchained.

Actual rich people pissing on his back all day make it so if he can’t find someone a little more homeless than he is to kick, the familiar feeling of shame and dispair overwhelms him and he sees his life as so fragile that everything he holds dear will blow away on the first strong gust of wind.

You can read this in everything he posts, especially the LOLs.
