So I’ve been viewing YT vids featuring Congessman Trey Gowdy Ben Shapiro and Congessman Jason Chaffetz as well as Steven Crowder. I’m learning a lot from these men. Not the least of which is the importance of informed civil political discourse and how the right needs to be able to engage the left. That being said, bullizard$hitcreek is a pab.
This morning , me and several of my neighbors burnt a New Orleans saints flag in effigy, I now have a Dallas Cowboys Flag hanging on my veranda, people driving by giving me a thumbs up gesture less than ten minutes from Superdome
Anyone thinks this is true?
As usual the Huffington Post has gone off half-cocked, more interested in propagating a leftwing political agenda than getting the facts straight. The woman herself says she was not sexually harassed and says she was invited to his hotel, not his hotel room:
People who read the Huffington Post are not interested in the truth, merely in finding BS to support their own preconceived notions.
1) When a normal man invites a woman to his hotel room it’s an invitation, not sexual harassment. The woman in question here didn’t work for Fox News so by definition it can’t be sexual harassment. She declined so end of story.
2) When a famous man invites a woman to his hotel room it’s not necessarily an invitation for anything more than a conversation. Famous people can’t meet in the hotel bar like normal people because they get mobbed. Personally, I think that’s how they get in trouble. If I was famous I would act the same and not invite women to my room even if it’s a giant suite with bar and living room. As we all know, Pence admitted he won’t even eat with a woman and the left ridiculed him for being so uptight, but now the left is ridiculing Hannity for the opposite? Make up your mind. Personally I come down on the side of Pence. He’s showing respect to his wife.
I am not even sure how Vice President’s Pence’s behavior could be considered uptight. He is saying essentially: “My wife and I hang out A LOT. Not only do I personally love it, but it is also done for precautions that a person in my position should always take” The hell is wrong with that?
Seriously? That is uptight? Having your wife with you? Taking her out and stuff? Really?
I don’t even understand the heck is wrong with lefties? They are insane! We know that marriage is meant to be a protection for both spouses. Protection socially, morally and spiritually if conducted with sense and morals.
If a man loves and respects and values his wife to the point where he would ask her to please come with him everywhere social (be it for business or otherwise) and he has others in a room with a female he has to talk to or interact with for purely common sense reasons and that is considered uptight seriously people that think that have no morals nor sense.
These same people have no problem with alleged rapists and child molesters among their ranks, but if a person they don’t like does the minimum that could possible resemble immoral behavior out of a sudden, they are evil incarnate…
Liberalism and everything of the Left is a mental disorder. These people need help.
Oh and for all we know, Mrs. Pence is a jealous woman who WANTS to make sure that her fine ass man don’t get pawed or placed in a difficult position. I don’t blame her for that! He is old and everything, but he looks like he came out of a box! For all we know she is trying to protect her man not necessarily from himself but FOR herself… why can’t lefties think about that?
I hang around with my wife all the time. Nothing wrong with that. We get along great.
Good for you, but in crazy town it means you discriminate against women who want to hang with you without your wife around, seemingly because they won’t get the same access and opportunities that your male friends get or something, but if you hang with women not your wife then you are a terrible person. You can’t win.
Who else wishes every state would do this?
Not me. California is under the sway of the powerful drug companies, plain and simple. I’ve heard you can buy a California politician on Craigs List for a song. Our children are over-vaccinated and vaccinated too soon. No other country injects so many drugs into its children. It’s absurd.
Hey everyone bill Nye spoke at the D.C. rally today. Didn’t you guys post a news article a while back saying he wouldn’t be speaking? Fake news!
From the article: “The March for Science is having a tough time deciding whether the march should focus on “diversity and inclusion” or health and climate policy.
They were supposed to have gotten their internal issues under control, but this week a new fight broke out over whether Bill Nye the Science Guy, the former children’s television host who considers himself the leader of the “pro-science movement” should lead the protest. The problem? Nye is a “white male.”
You’ve really gotta work on those reading/comprehension skills.
Why didn’t you quote this paragraph?
“Nye, who is not, in fact, a scientist, except on television (he’s an engineer by trade), was slated to be the March’s chair, and an announcement was made last week. But organizers quickly panicked that having Nye at the forefront of the event meant they might be substantiating the idea that scientists are only old white men.”
To me this implies he was no longer the chair.
Yeah, when you make an explicit statement sometimes it is best not to hang it on the implicit.
Besides your complaint/question was:
“Didn’t you guys post a news article a while back saying he wouldn’t be speaking?”
Which is not something implied by the portion of the article that you quoted.
Fair enough. You got me. I can’t win them all.
What makes you think you have won any of them, other than your own delusions?
Bill Nye, NOT a science guy, just an engineer with a dumb bow tie…

Way to go Yates!! Speak the truth!!
So Google informed me today that my Bogus Hate Crimes website is in violation of their policies and I can no longer show Google ads. As far as I can tell I violate no policy but the website is definitely a conservative website. That’s basically the issue. Google is at war to purify the Internet from anything conservative.
Why would you want to run Google ads anyway? It’s not like they say anything useful.
Well I fixed them. Instead of advertising Google shit, I’m now advertising my own shit. I make more money selling books than those paltry pennies that come in from Google anyway.
This is all over the place… Twitter and Facebook as well. Just go to Youtube and find conservative commentators making the same point based on their videos being demonitized etc.
Is this same thing happening to all conservative websites? If not, then they either made a mistake or your website truly does violate their policies. Have you tried contacting them?
They don’t provide a way to contact them. They’re Google. They aren’t interested in a discussion about it. They just tell you.
And yes, it happens to all conservatives on the Internet. Facebook even took Sean Hannity’s site down the other day. Twitter takes a conservative down almost daily. But liberal sites? They don’t ever get taken down, no matter what filthy disgusting stuff they post. You can fight them on it, try to use public pressure to embarrass them, but little sites like mine don’t have the wherewithal to fight that battle all the time. So I will just take the Google ads off the site and hope someday the liberal billionaires who run the tech sector get their comeuppance.
Why I don’t advertise.

As for your second paragraph, I can’t speak much about that since I’m not familiar with those incidences.
wow I thought Obama was the most corrupt President?
Bill Clinton tried this very same thing in the Paula Jones case. It didn’t work for him and I hope it won’t work for Trump. But it would be good if you developed a better sense of history (or at least read to the third paragraph of the news stories you link) because you are making our jobs here far easier than they should be.
What did I say that was wrong? Of course I didn’t support what Clinton did.
However, this doesn’t excuse what Trump is pulling off here.
wow I thought Obama was the most corrupt President
Your implication was clearly that the Trump maneuver is beyond the normal sorts of corruption Presidents engage in. I was just trying to give you the historical perspective necessary to not sound like a jackass. That you already were aware of the precedent (of course if we consider executive privilege in general the precedent goes back much further) makes your commentary even more laughable than it was before.
How is it corrupt to respond to a lawsuit? You have a weird idea of what the word corrupt means. Corrupt is when you collect hundreds of millions of dollars from foreign governments for being Secretary of State. See the difference?
He is being a little bitch and claiming immunity. I thought he bragged so much about winning lawsuits?
The fact is he is claiming immunity because he knows he truly messed up.
Immunity is only one of five or six arguments his lawyers made. You didn’t even read the link you posted, did you? That’s what lawyers do, they make every argument they can think of and hope one of them works. I doubt on such a frivolous lawsuit they even consulted Trump. This certainly doesn’t measure up to the blatant corruption of Clinton or Obama. Clinton made herself rich off her public position and Obama was using the power of the federal government to spy on and tyrannize his political opponents. Good grief, get some perspective.
Yes I read the article. I aware of the other arguments and I will admit one of them has merit. However, I can’t believe his lawyers have audacity to use the “immunity” card.
Now his lawyers have audacity. A minute ago Trump was the most corrupt president because of this. Which is it, audacity or historical corruption? You really don’t have any substance behind your comments do you? That’s pretty much the definition of a troll.
Did I retract my statement on Trump? Nope. I just added that his lawyers have audacity.
You can do better than that JP. I believe in you.
Sarah Palin was invited to the White House and brought with her Ted Nugent and wife and Kris Rock and wife… is she divorcing her husband?
Scott Brown nominated to New Zealand ambassador position…
Wow Ossoff did pretty well last night! He will probably lose in the runoff but it’s pretty good that a democrat is doing so well in GA-6 considering it is a deep red district.
I can’t wait for the 2018 Midterms!
Yeah wow, the Democrats throw out all the stops, spend millions of dollars, and fly in dozens of celebrities to campaign for the numbnut and he still can’t win. Wow.
Reported 10 million dollars spent. The vote was spread out with 4 Republicans and him right? He did not get even half of the vote… You WOULD think with those odds he should have at least gotten half of the votes. Even with fraudulent means as reported by some, he still couldn’t win
lol I think it was more like 10 other GOP candidates. I understand they put in a lot of effort and lost but that is still impressive for a deep red district in my opinion.
What if they put in the same level of effort into swing districts and moderate districts in 2018? I sense a huge wave of democrats coming into the house in 2018. THIS is the reason why I’m hopeful for the future based upon what happened in GA-6.
“What if they put in the same level of effort into swing districts and moderate districts in 2018?”
You realize they don’t have enough money to spend 10 million in every district, right? Even for a rhetorical question, that was stupid.
I didn’t say every district. Only the moderate and swing districts.
If true and it was closer to ten, then Ossoff’s lost is far more impressively bad! yawn he lost… that is all that matters, trying to turn this devastating lost into a “almost win” and possibly good news for dems is laughable…
lol that’s surface level thinking. It’s all about momentum. Price won’t that district by 20 percent now the GOP may only win that district by 2 percent in June.
That’s a sharp change.
OK while I was getting rid of that spam I finally (I hope) found the setting so the comment spaces don’t get ridiculously small. I have it set to not go more than 5 spaces over, which seems OK to me. After that they shouldn’t get any smaller. 🙂
Well, I guess we need to try it to see if it’s fixed.
Good idea, let’s try it.
I am trying it, dumbass.
Who are you calling a dumbass?
That you even need to ask that question proves you are a dumbass.
Well lookee there, the comments are not getting any narrower.
Brilliant observation, dumbass.
Trouble is, now we don’t know who a reply is directed at.
@ dumbass. “Ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I will not put.” Also: “Whom.” 😉
Just use @JPTravis or @Not so Silent…etc. Beats having one word under the other…lol.
Bill O’Reilly fired from Fox News. While he was in vacation in Italy.
Good news! One less sexual predator with power!!
Bill O’Reilly has been excused from FOX News. He was accused of sexual harassment, he has apparently settled four previous cases, the last accusation seems pretty weak but whatever, he is gone. Apparently the Murdoch boys didn’t think backing their man was worthwhile…to bad.
So Ole Bill hit on some women and everyone is up in arms, the left is ecstatic. The hearts of liberals are filled with joy because the right’s poster boy had fallen.
Bill Clinton Ted Kennedy JFK Bob Mendez Anthony Weiner Eliot Spitzer David Wu Jon Edwards
And I could go on and on.
You are missing the point. The left has no involvement in this. Fox News themselves decided to kick out bill.
The right is their own biggest enemy.
Oh puhleeze. The left has plenty of involvement. They’re the ones who’ve been screaming for his removal. Not to mention I’d bet most of the corporations who pulled their advertising are lefties.
I read about some of these corporations (like Hyundai for example) who pulled their ads from O’Reilly but still partner with the Clinton Foundation. Talk about hypocrites. They object to a sexual harasser but are fine with a rapist?
Exactly. Depends upon which Bill.
Bill O’Reilly’s dick = bad Bill Clinton’s dick = ignore
Now if we could just lock up Bill Clinton over his visits to Pedophile Island.
The article did state “The extent of that relationship, however, has never been made clear”. Is it possible that he knew him but wasn’t aware of his pedophilia background? I imagine it isn’t incredibly difficult for someone to hide certain aspects of their private life.
Exactly. It is only good news if it is not a Democrat or a member of the Regressive Left.
Yea like Anthony Wiener…oooppss wait, Anthony went after kids..i forgot.
Looks like Kalifornia won’t be going anywhere soon, the commie in charge just fled to Russia..Imagine that, a demotard running home to mother Russia cause nobody would play the game with his rules…
This is just another reason why I can’t take California seriously…
No one should. It’s a race to see who can create the biggest clusterf*ck of legislation and tax people to death. A non partisan group figured Kalifornia proposed 15 billion in taxes this legislative season.. 15 Billion! Ass Clown Jerry Brown wants all our money…If the Norks have a missle, please send it to Sacramento and soon.
I’ve said many times that Ronald Reagan could have easily be regarded as a prophet…

During a recent Trump stop, a heckler from the audience hollered, “Hey Trump, where are you hiding your tax returns?”
The Donald politely responded, “I’ve found a very secure place that I’m certain they won’t be found”.
The insistent heckler, then shouted, “And just where is that, dummy”?
The Donald smiled and said, “They are underneath Obama’s college records, his passport application, his immigration status as a student, his funding sources to pay for college, his college records, and his Selective Service registration”.
“What’s your next question?”
Joke or real?
Just a joke…
But the best jokes have a LOT of truth to them.
