  1. Meanwhile his campaign is spending more than twice what the entire democratic field is spending on Facebook and Google ads. I guess when you are running to stay out of prison you pull out all the stops.
  2. Leaked Chats Show White Nationalist Group's Plot to Infiltrate Turning Point USA "... the brashness of Turning Point USA’s rhetoric — with its slogan “Socialism Sucks” — and its grassroots structure has, on occasion, left the group vulnerable to infiltration or appropriation by more radical elements of the far-right. “Hate groups see such an opportunity in the coarse, fragmented, and often bigoted socio-political mainstream, that they are willing to ditch more abrasive propaganda that would otherwise alienate potential new adherents,” Levin said. In the leaked Identity Evropa Discord chats, one server member wrote that his “ultimate goal” was a “subversion of my school’s TPUSA chapter into a front for IE [Identity Evropa.]” “Broke: Infiltrating GOP,” another user wrote. “Woke: Infiltrating TPUSA.” Another member claimed that he’d been recruiting with the leader of his school’s Turning Point USA chapter at the club fair."
  3. This American Life did a story last year about the Turning Point USA organization. They train young conservatives to bait and trigger people into fighting so they can use the viral video to play the victim and advance their cause. I recommend checking out the prologue of this episode (11 min) for an understanding of their motives. This American Life 645 - "My Effing First Amendment" Prologue: This extreme political moment is playing out on college campuses, places that are already at the extreme end of politics. Outside groups are getting involved, helping conservatives fight back against angry liberals on campus. Producer Zoe Chace tells Ira about a conference she went to, hosted by Turning Point USA, where students get trained on how to fight these battles. (11 minutes) Print Story about the University of Nebraska incident that is featured in the TAL story.
  4. If we are making up "Gs" why not jump straight to 10G? "It's twice as good. Believe me folks!"
  5. I stashed Conner based on this post. Thank you for the list Z!
  6. Anyone got any stash candidates for 2019? Antonio Calloway was just added in our league after he found the end zone this week. Anyone willing to share their stashes for next year? Hunter Henry's gotta stay healthy at some point, right?
  7. I remember this too. Seems like he's compromised as well. He went from mild critic to a blind Trump's defender basically overnight after that round of golf. Found this old article. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.businessinsider.com/why-lindsey-graham-and-trump-are-best-friends-2017-12 He immediately came out lying for Trump. Anyone believe trump shot a 73? "He hit the ball on the screws," Graham said, suggesting that the president had shot an incredible 73 on an 18-hole course, roughly par for 18 holes.
  8. An oldie but a goodie. "There's two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump," McCarthy (R-Calif.) said, according to a recording of the June 15, 2016, exchange, which was listened to and verified by The Washington Post. House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) immediately interjected, stopping the conversation from further exploring McCarthy's assertion, and swore the Republicans present to secrecy. Some of the lawmakers laughed at McCarthy's comment. Then McCarthy quickly added: "Swear to God." Ryan instructed his Republican lieutenants to keep the conversation private, saying: "No leaks. . . . This is how we know we're a real family here." Ryan dab.
  9. HOF episode tonight. STARK contrast in policing styles between Pinal, AZ and Slidell, LA. Anyone catch this one?
  10. You are probably right. Seems likely they would pull that crap to minimize the public response. If/when Mueller is fired there needs to be a massive, forceful, but peaceful protest to show that the rule of law is important to us as a country. Thankfully people are already working on such a plan. I signed up at www.trumpisnotabovethelaw.org to be notified of my local protest when it happens. I hope this doesn't run afoul of board rules. If it does, mods please let me know if changes need to be made.
