Here We Go: Colin Kaepernick Takes Legal Action Against NFL

Colin Kaepernick has taken legal action against the National Football League, filing a grievance under the most recent collective bargaining agreement that accuses NFL owners of collusion.
The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback claims he’s being punished for starting the wave of protests where football players kneel during the national anthem, arguing that team owners conspired to keep him out of the league.
Under the collective bargaining agreement, the burden of proof for collusion is as follows: "The failure by a club or clubs to negotiate, to submit offer sheets, or to sign contracts with restricted free agents or transition players, or to negotiate, make offers, or sign contracts for the playing services of such players or unrestricted free agents, shall not, by itself or in combination only with evidence about the playing skills of the player(s) not receiving any such offer or contract, satisfy the burden of proof set forth …"
Kaepernick, who’s been a free agent since March when he opted out of his contract, decided to hire an attorney rather than go through the NFL Players’ Association.


FBI Finally Admits It Has a Bunch of Documents About Bill Clinton's Tarmac Meeting With Loretta Lynch  Katie Pavlich   Posted: Oct 16, 2017 

FBI Finally Admits It Has a Bunch of Documents About Bill Clinton's Tarmac Meeting With Loretta Lynch

After claiming there were no official records related to the the infamous summer 2016 meeting between former President Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch on her private plan in Phoenix, the FBI is now admitting documents do exist and there are dozens of them. 
Government watchdog Judicial Watch has been pursuing the documents for months and will receive them at the end of November after issuing a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the Bureau. The lawsuit was filed after the Bureau refused to turn them over earlier this year. 
"The FBI originally informed Judicial Watch they did not locate any records related to the tarmac meeting.  However, in a related case, the Justice Department located emails in which Justice Department officials communicated with the FBI and wrote that they had communicated with the FBI," Judicial Watch found. "As a result, by letter dated August 10, 2017, from the FBI stated, 'Upon further review, we subsequently determined potentially responsive documents may exist. As a result, your [FOIA] request has been reopened.'"
Under Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the Justice Department has refused to release unredacted internal talking points developed in response to the meeting. The meeting took place just days before then FBI Director James Comey announced he would not refer Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to DOJ for prosecution. Lynch had previously asked him to call the FBI's criminal investigation of Clinton a simple "matter."
Comey said during congressional testimony earlier this year the Lynch/Clinton meeting prompted him to be "unusually transparent" about the Bureau's criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton. Lynch also admitted the meeting was improper, but maintains the only topics discussed with the former President were grandchildren and golf.

“The FBI is out of control. It is stunning that the FBI ‘found’ these Clinton-Lynch tarmac records only after we caught the agency hiding them in another lawsuit,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “Judicial Watch will continue to press for answers about the FBI’s document games in court. In the meantime, the FBI should stop the stonewall and release these new records immediately.”

I don't know about today, but in wartime he could be put to the field--SHOT !

It's Official: Bowe Bergdahl Enters a Guilty Plea For Desertion

It's Official: Bowe Bergdahl Enters a Guilty Plea For Desertion

Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl  has officially pleaded guilty to desertion and bad behavior charges after walking away from his Afghanistan base in 2009. He was captured by the Taliban and held for five years. 
Bergdahl walked into a military court room in his dress blues early Monday morning at Ft. Bragg to enter the plea, whining along the way President Trump made it impossible for him to receive a fair trial. He will be sentenced by a judge next week and faces up to life in prison for his misbehavior charges. 
A reminder of some of his actions. 
At one point during his captivity, Bergdahl converted to Islam, fraternized openly with his captors and declared himself a "mujahid," or warrior for Islam, Fox News reported in 2014, citing secret documents prepared on the basis of a purported eyewitness account.

The reports indicate that Bergdahl's relations with his Haqqani captors morphed over time, from periods of hostility, where he was treated very much like a hostage, to periods where, as one source told Fox News, "he became much more of an accepted fellow" than is popularly understood. He even reportedly was allowed to carry a gun at times.

I'm surprised they aren't changing "Henry or Edward" into a female "engine" so they could have a "transgender engine"

Thomas the Tank Engine to become gender-balanced

An overhaul of Thomas the Tank Engine will see two male engines turfed out to make way for female characters. Henry and Edward will be moving out of Tidmouth Sheds to make way for Nia, an orange engine from Africa, and Rebecca, a yellow-coloured engine.They will join Emily, the other female engine, as well as the boys Thomas, Percy James and Gordon.And the tradition of Liverpudlian narration - which first began with Ringo Starr - will disappear, as well as the theme tune with its roll-call of engine names.But the the most dramatic change will be Thomas leaving his home on the Island of Sodar as he embarks on adventures across the globe.Mattel, the US toy giant that owns rights to the much-loved show, collaborated with the United Nations to help meet the organisation's Sustainable Development Goals.The storylines have been written to meet five of the goals: quality education, gender equality, sustainable cities and communities, responsible consumption and production, and life on land.Mattel said the changes are a 'groundbreaking refresh' and is based on extensive market research with hundreds of parents and their children.The show had previously come under fire and was criticised as sexist, classist and anti-enviromentalist.But its creators have introduced small changes in recent years, including the addition of Japanese engine, Hiro.The overhaul, which begins in 2018, is the most significant transformation since the TV version first broadcast in 1984.The shows are based on the books of Rev Wilbert Awdry, who made up the stories to entertain his son, Christopher, who was ill with measles.However, Thomas and Friends is today facing competition from US cartoons, meaning the show has to evolve.The new series, which airs in 2018, will 'break the fourth wall' as Thomas narrates the series himself and talks directly to the viewer.Series producer Ian McCue said the team could not 'sustain' episodes that were based in Sodor any longer.'We wanted him to disover new things, and for the first time he will be leaving Sodor and England,' Mr McCue told the Telegraph.'We couldn't have him encountering a new animal in Sodor every week, but now he can meet kangaroos in Australia, tigers in India, pandas in China.'Mr McCue said that while other female engines had featured on the show previously, they had 'disappeared into the background'.'We're not making these changes for the sake of it. We know that a lot of girls love the show.The audience on [Channel 5's] Milkshake is 50:50,' he added. It comes after Labour MP Mary Creagh complained that Thomas was perpetuating 'negative sterotypes' — arguing it needed more female engines.

Champion of Hypocrites Ashley Nasty Judd...

This NAAASSTY WOMAN was so offended by Trumps comment 13 years ago. Where is Hollywood’s outrage now??? Where are your pink nasty hats now? Why aren’t you marching on the streets for the rapists and perverts in your very own industry? The hypocrisy of these people I tell ya!

Never saw John Oliver show, so I know nothing about him but the headline caught my eye......HE POSES A VERY GOOD, LEGITIMATE QUESTION....

John Oliver Calls Out The Academy's Hypocrisy

"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver was the first late-night host to address the sexual harassment and assault accusations against Harvey Weinstein last week, and Oliver took aim at the scandal again a week later. This time, he called out The Academy of Motion Pictures, which removed Weinstein from its ranks over the weekend. Oliver said, “Yes, finally the group that counts among its current members Roman Polanski, Bill Cosby, and Mel Gibson had found the one guy who treated women badly and kicked him out. So, congratulations, Hollywood. See you at the next Oscars where – and this is true – Casey Affleck will be presenting Best Actress.”
Casey Affleck, who won the Oscar for best actor for "Manchester by the Sea" in 2017, has been
accused of sexual harassment by two former co-workers.

Posting this from Daley Gator,....cause I can't stand seth meyers. If he couldn't bust on President Trump, HE WOULD HAVE NO SHOW !!!!

Irrelevant late-night host Seth Meyers illustrates Leftist bigotry

Seth Meyers, who is as funny as a screen door in a sub-marine, apparently hates you if you voted for Trump. Chalk this up as another example of Leftist “tolerance”
If you are an American who supports President Donald Trump, late night comedian Seth Meyers has a special message for you.
The NBC late-night host echoed rapper Eminem‘s anti-Trump freestyle rant with one of his own, calling on viewers to “get off the fence” and choose whether they support Trump or his show.
“And if you can’t decide who you like more and you’re split on who you should stand beside, I’ll do it for you with this. F*** you!” the famous Detroit rapper told any of his fans who still support the president, as he gave the camera a middle finger.
Meyers found that inspiring.
“Do you support him or do you support this show that constantly mocks and denigrates everything about him?” he asked “Late Night” viewers.
“My name is Seth and I’m here to say: If you like Trump, then go away,” he said in a mock rap before putting up his middle finger.
See Seth Meyers is better than you if you voted for Trump. Hey that is his show, his business, and for one, I am always heartened when Leftist douchebags speak “truth to power”. It exposes them for the shallow, narrow-minded, knuckle dragging bigots they really are!
And, since we referenced Eminem, let a real hero set that little no talent straight

That super-volcano under Yellowstone? Well, it’s waaay bigger than they thought. And that’s not the bad news.  By  Kelly 

According to WNCT“Underneath Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, Montana and Idaho, there is a reservoir of magma that is more than twice the size that researchers previously thought. It’s not getting bigger. It’s just that new technology has made the ability to see it better. This will also have implications on the extent of the volcano’s impact when it erupts. Researchers with the U.S.G.S. say that the last time the volcano erupted was some 640,000 years ago. They also say that this supervolcano has the potential to spew more than 240 cubic miles of magma across Montana, Idaho and Wyoming with global effects. Scientists do believe that it will erupt again one day, but do not know when.”
The Yellowstone Caldera, to give the supervolcano its proper name, could blow anytime. But that doesn’t mean it’s due – or even overdue according to geologists.
The last full-scale eruption of the Yellowstone Supervolcano, the Lava Creek eruption which happened approximately 630,000 years ago, ejected approximately 240 cubic miles (1,000 km3) of rock, dust and volcanic ash into the sky. Geologists are closely monitoring the rise and fall of the Yellowstone Plateau, which measures on average 0.6 inches (1.5 cm) yearly, as an indication of changes in magma chamber pressure.

REPORT: Bill Clinton Hated Hillary's New Book, Threw It In Garbage      ByJoseph Curl

Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signs copies of her new book 'What Happened' during a book signing event at Barnes and Noble bookstore September 12, 2017 in New York City.

Hillary Clinton didn't lose the 2016 election. Everyone else lost it for her.
So far she's blamed: FBI director James Comey, Russia, computer bots, Wikileaks, Bernie Sanders, Facebook, Joe Biden, fake news, Twitter, voter ID laws, the vast right-wing conspiracy, sexism, Barack Obama, ageism, Anthony Weiner, white women, xenophobia, black people, the electoral college, the DNC, misogyny, women cowed by their husbands — even former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
The two-time loser is now on a tour selling her new book, What Happened (as if she needs more money). She's wandering the country and, for some reason, Canada, telling a few hundred people at a time that the world conspired against her when she got absolutely pummeled by Donald Trump in the presidential race.
Now, Edward Klein, an author who has written several books about the Clintons, reports that Bill Clinton tried to dissuade Hillary on her blame-filled book, the New York Post reports. Klein's got a new book, All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump, coming out October 30, and he's got some tasty nuggets in there.
“Before Hillary sent the manuscript to her publisher, she gave it to Bill to read, and he made major changes with a red pencil,” said a close Clinton family friend. “But she refused to even read his corrections, and he got so furious that he tossed the entire manuscript into the garbage.
“He told her the book made her look bewildered, angry and confused, and that those were poor qualities in a person who aspired to be a world leader,” the friend continued.
“He hated the title because calling it ‘What Happened’ would only make people say, ‘You lost.’ He urged her to postpone the pub date and rewrite the book, but she yelled at him and said, ‘The book is finished and that’s how it’s going to be published.’”
Klein also writes that Bill told Hillary just a month before the election that she was losing, urging her to campaign in Rust Belt states like Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania — all of which she lost to Trump.
“She told him he was delusional,” Klein writes.
We've often thought the same thing, but in this case, Bubba was spot on.

KIMMEL: "You should put your mouth on it"..........these late night hosts are so sanctimonious but.....they should remember the old adage, "ye who are without sin, cast the first stone"

I love it when someone like kimmel gets caught.

Before Jimmy Kimmel Lectured You on Ethics, He Asked Women to Grab his Crotch...

Jimmy Kimmel has anointed himself the arbiter of all that is good, caring, noble and moral. Be it healthcare, guns, Donald Trump grabbing women by the p*ssy, or poor Cecil the Lion, Jimmy always has wise words for us little people.
Here’s Jimmy telling women to touch his junk and put their mouths on it.

Now, I want to be clear here: these women consented. I’m not going all “OMG, OUTRAGE” over what Kimmel did in this segment. Was it icky? To me, a woman, yes (note that byline). But the woman are going along with it no problem. It’s possible a few women didn’t want to play and skipped the game. They’re not on camera.
What Kimmel is doing here is “all in fun” with sexual double entendres galore. The women, as I already stated, are playing along. They’re out in public and are, to my eyes, in no way coerced or threatened. Had I been walking on the street and Kimmel asked if I would play a game involving touching his dark places, I would’ve passed and carried on. These women played the game. Okay? Okay.
But for Kimmel to now erect monuments of virtue, when he thought having women on the street touch around his private parts was funny, is a little off brand. Don’t claim to be this great hero when you told ladies to put their mouths on it as they bent before you. On camera.
The internet is forever, Jimmy

Berkeley Students Protest Exam, Demand ‘Take Home Essay’ Because White Privilege And Stuff    October 9, 2017 ByFrank Camp

A video has surfaced on YouTube showing students at the University of California, Berkeley protesting an exam, and demanding a "take-home essay with significant time to prepare." The reason? "Our well-beings are being put on the line because of our emotional, mental, and physical stress that [Berkeley] is compounding with what is already going on in our every day lives," according to one of the students in the video.
"The content of this class and the way it is being taught is not satisfactory. And even if it is ... we feel that we haven't had the opportunity to interact with the text and information. We demand that you make and [hold space] to [study] the voices of students of color," one protester stated.
After nearly four minutes of non-stop speaking, one student asked if this was "a filibuster." A female protester was outraged by his sarcasm:

"Investigation" going on far too long. A waste of taxpayer money, and as far as Mueller is concerned, is it his EGO that keeps the witch hunt going ??

Amid cooperation, some Trump allies urge Russia probe fight

Associated press  Video by MSNBC
WASHINGTON — Even as President Donald Trump's advisers encourage him to accept the realities of special counsel Robert Mueller's probe, longtime friends and allies are pushing Trump to fight back, citing concerns that his lawyers are naive to the existential threat facing the president.
Trump supporters and associates inside and outside the White House see the conciliatory path as risky to the maverick president's tenure. Instead, they want the street-fighting tweeter to criticize Mueller with abandon.
The struggle between supporters of the legal team's steady, cooperative approach, and the band of Trump loyalists who yearn for a fight, comes as the Mueller probe begins lapping at the door of the Oval Office. Mueller, who is investigating the firing of former FBI director James Comey and other key actions of the Trump administration, has signaled that his team intends to interview multiple current and former White House officials in the coming weeks and has requested large batches of documents from the executive branch.
In private, Trump remains relatively calm for now, but that doesn't mean he thinks the Russia probe is legitimate, and he could return to fighting Mueller at any moment, according to a group of about 15 Trump allies, advisers and former campaign aides, who spoke on condition of anonymity to speak candidly about private conversations with the White House.
The president still periodically flashes his anger, blasting the Senate intelligence committee's investigation in a tweet last Thursday and urging them to investigate journalists instead of his campaign and family. And in a private dinner with social conservatives last month, Trump expressed frustration over Attorney General Jeff Sessions' recusal, which helped pave the road to Mueller's appointment.
"The president respects what Bob Mueller is doing and has fully cooperated and asked everyone around him to fully cooperate with Bob," said Trump's attorney, John Dowd. "And as a result," he added, there has been for months "a very productive, professional relationship."
Ty Cobb, the White House lawyer responsible for responding to Mueller's information requests, said it's important to Trump "and the country to get this behind us."
"The White House is working diligently in full cooperation with the special counsel to complete the responses to all pending requests, and the president's frustration does not extend to the special counsel personally in any way," he added.

Obama's $400,000 speech could prompt Congress to go after his pension

WASHINGTON — Last year, then-president Barack Obama vetoed a bill that would have curbed the pensions of former presidents if they took outside income of $400,000 or more.
So now that former president Barack Obama has decided to accept $400,000 for an upcoming Wall Street speech, the sponsors of that bill say they'll reintroduce that bill in hopes that President Trump will sign it.
"The Obama hypocrisy on this issue is revealing," said Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and sponsor of the 2016 bill. "His veto was very self-serving

Detroit Firefighter Fired for Bringing Watermelon to Station House     By Rick Moran October 8, 2017  

A 41-year-old probationary firefighter has been fired after his first day on the job because he brought a watermelon to work.
Robert Pattison went to introduce himself to his fellow firefighters and, as was the tradition at the firehouse, brought some food to share. But while most rookie firefighters brought donuts, Pattison brought a watermelon. Some of the black firefighters, who make up about 90% of the station, said they were offended by the act and the Detroit Fire Department decided to fire the probie.
"When you get your first detail at a firehouse you pretty much know what you are getting yourself into," Patrick Trout told Fox 2,  "So you would have to say it was probably a bad call."
FOX 2 asked, "Is it racially insensitive to bring a watermelon into a fire house?"
"To some people," McCarty said.
Pattison told Fox 2 by phone that it was not a joke; he hadn't meant to offend his fellow firefighters.
The news outlet reported, "Fire Commissioner Eric Jones says the Fenton native was officially discharged."
Jones said in a statement: "There is zero tolerance for discriminatory behavior inside the Detroit Fire Department. On Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017, at Engine 55, a trial firefighter (probationary employee) engaged in unsatisfactory work behavior which was deemed offensive and racially insensitive to members of the Detroit Fire Department."
"After a thorough investigation, it was determined that the best course of action was to terminate the employment of this probationary employee," he added.
Fox 2 added, "In a world where racial tensions run high, some tell me the trial firefighter should have known better. Trout doesn't know if he meant anything by it - but feels it was a bad choice."
"For sure by far it was," Pattison said.
Fox 2 asked, "Should he have lost his job over a watermelon?"
"I don't think so," McCarty said. "Between what he did and what was there are a few things that could have been done."
If it wasn't a joke, what was it? To unthinkingly play to stereotypes is insensitive -- "a bad call," as Mr. Trout observed. I suspect we would have seen a similar reaction from black firefighters if Pattison had brought a bucket of fried chicken or collard greens.
But the question here isn't whether was Pattison wrong but rather whether hė should he have been fired. On the one hand, the department's view is Pattison was a probationary worker and keeping him on would have caused racial friction. It was simply easier to fire him and avoid a racially tense situation.
Pattison would be correct in thinking this is terribly unfair. But it was still his error
