The Campaign For DA

9.14.2017

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • An ESPN reporter called Trump a White Supremacist on Twitter. Yesterday, White House Spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the reporter should be fired. Let that sink in. The government is calling for the firing of a citizen because of something they said.  I'm still trying to figure out whether she is dumber than her daddy. It's a really tough call. 
  • Neo-nazis are "good people" but someone who criticizes Trump should be fired? Ok, got it. 
  • Baylor's back-up Tight End, who was scheduled to start against Duke this weekend, was ruled out yesterday due to "illness." Who gets ruled out of a Saturday game because of an illness on Wednesday? 
  • I'm seriously thinking about doing a daily bullet point on how long each night it takes Fox 4's Steve Eagar to screw up reading from the teleprompter. It truly is incredible.
  • The Cleveland Indians 21 game winning streak is more impressive than winning a World Series. 
  • Los Angeles will get the 2028 Olympic summer games. That seems huge but hasn't made a lot of news.  
  • Northwest ISD has school buses with kids sitting in aisles because of overcrowding. They allow three per seat but it could just be kids are sitting in the aisle because what kid wants to sit three to a seat?
  • Trump cut a deal with Democrats last night on DACA, then denied it this morning, and then followed it up with this 180 implying he did agree to it. 
  • Ann Coulter was not pleased: 
  • I want a Sholarship!
  • There's a weird trend on radio ads (and at least one on TV) where the obviously cuss but it is bleeped out. No thanks. That's not cute.

Skippy is a grumpy little fella today. Hang in there little buddy. So you are all about free speech when it is anti Trump? That's the leftist playbook. If said reporter would have called Obama a primate would you feel the same?

Anonymous said...

how many people lost their jobs saying things about Obama? Kurt Schilling comes to mind from ESPN. Once again do sports not politics I don't watch ESPN for their political opinions I watch for sports! oh yeah she is black so she gets a pass because of slavery and inequality and what other crap they come up with this week!

I think that Northwest ISD should ask to raise taxes so they can afford to buy enough buses. A few years ago they laid off a bunch of central office staff so they could keep teachers and pay they well. Sadly they have so few central staff to support teachers and now are unable to afford buses. Something needs to be done to help them.

At what point is the office of the President above the daily bickerings of every little petty issue? If he'd just stop bitching about every little thing, his ridiculous responses wouldn't be news. Can you imagine if Obama responded to every whack job birther on the internet? I mean, Wordkyle's blog might get an actual comment for once, but other than that, the office would have ground to a halt all on its own, not just because of Republican obstructionism.

Anyone else think it's weird that Republicans couldn't get anything passed when Obama was in office, citing Democratic obstructionism, and now that they own all three branches, are still complaining about Democratic obstructionism? And yet the only two deals made in Trump's tenure to date have been because Trump approached Democrats directly and bypassed the Republicans in Congress?

That's a party of no ideas, right there.

I'm with you on the ads with cuss words. I also think bumper stickers with things like that should get a person ticketed. Of course, a black-person hating, birther cop would never have ticketed a redneck with F$#K Obama on his truck.

Does Barry really believe that Trump said that neo-nazis are good people?

We get it, you don't like Trump. Obama was a saint and could do no wrong. Hillary is the modern day Betsy Ross, Clara Barton, Florence Nighingale and Mother Theresa all rolled into one. Geez, dude, get over it. At the risk of sounding totally crass.......you need to go out and get you some strange or at least start some testosterone treatments to cure your grumpy old man attitude. Do you freaking Iike anything? For a guy that prides himself on being up on what's cool and hip........you sure have a major case of crabby ass!!!! But I like you just the same.

Huckabee is not the government. She simply said what all of us are thinking about the double standards on that network. Shilling was fired for being critical of Obama.

A few weeks ago there were several news articles that there were only two cities in the running for the 2024 and 2028 Olympics: Paris and LA. LA agreed they would take the 2028 Olympics. This announcement is just a formality to what had been agreed to last month. The real news is that most major cities around the world are no longer interested in the hassle of hosting the Olympics

The difference is that Obama's White House Press Secretary didn't say Curt Schilling (or anyone else) should be fired because they said something about Obama. If your employer wants to fire you for saying something about the President, they get to do that. But the White House doesn't get to tell your employer to fire you because you said something derogatory about the President. The First Amendment protects you from that governmental restriction on speech.

9:01, 9:06: There is a difference between a) public outrage leading to a company cutting ties with an employee and b) the government of the United States calling for an employee of a company to be fired.

Now, I don't know what the ESPN woman said and I don't care, but surely you can recognize the difference.

She didn't tell ESPN to do anything, she voiced her opinion on the matter. Her opinion carries no weight with ESPN and the are not obligated to act on her suggestion.

The "government" didn't call for anyone to be fired. Huckabee expressed her opinion on the matter. ESPN is not obligated in any way to listen to her on the matter and you know why....the laws enacted by our GOVERNMENT!!!

You must be new here. he criticizes all sides, it just so happens that stupid Trump things takes up the most space lately.

"how many people lost their jobs saying things about Obama? Kurt Schilling comes to mind from ESPN."

Because Obama said they should? None. You've been schooled by others already, but do you really not see the difference between a company deciding someone is too hot to keep for ratings and income purposes, and the president's office saying someone should be fired?

"Huckabee is not the government."

Uhhh, she is the spokesperson for the President of the United States. The things she says are on behalf of the president. When she is standing in that room talking to reporters, she is, quite literally, the government.

Interesting that some of you think that the White House Press Secretary, when giving a scheduled press briefing in the White House, standing behind the podium with The White House emblazoned across the front, delivering information and answering questions on behalf of the Administration, is actually just delivering a personal op-ed piece.

Press Secretary, do they carry a gun these days? Power of arrest?
So they made a suggestion....
Compare to the Clintons, who actually fired Dr. Whitehurst for telling the truth about the FBI crime lab.

Hey Skippy, how about starting a bullet point on all the white people that have been fired from ESPN for criticizing black people?

4/11 bullet points today were about Trump. But if you only read the comments, you'd think Barry ran a Trump-only blog.

The truth is that all the Trump supporters who comment here are just salty that their candidate has a 30-40% approval rating and a 50-60% disapproval rating. It's not the content of the blog that makes them hot. It's their own embarrassment.

Anonymous said...

Huckabee said Jamele Hill's comments were a "fireable offense" and were "outrageous"! She in no way said that ESPN should fire her. Get the story straight folks. BG, in lockstep with the mainstream media, are misrepresenting the facts on this story and sensationilising it to fit their agenda. Do you idiots realize this is precisely why Trump got elected and why few Americans trust the media. This is the definition of fake news.

Being accused of racism and being called a racial epithet are 2 different things. You can control espousing racist dogma, you cannot control your race and how others respond to it.

I hope Hillary runs again in 2020. I hope the Dems are still dim enough to nominate her again. And I hope she wins. If you want to see a sizable, loud minority shut the country down in protest of a legal election, you are really going to get a show. We now have the template. And the precedent. The dems are going to rue the day they thought this Trump Temper Tantrum (TTT) was a good idea
