Google's done several memes around this earlier, with memes of decidedly unglamorous big-thighed women from various countries making frontal power kicks, and that's O.K., soccer actually does give anyone playing it big thighs, and not every woman ought to be all-in on the Beyonce pop princess standard of Hollywood anyway.

One that is up now shows Soviet-looking overmuscled (cartoon) bodies with teeny-weeny little heads. Interesting.

If Megan really believes in her own vanity, and apparently she really, really does, she should throw this game today. America doesn't deserve to win, anyway, and the world will be much happier to see the USA team go down. And what could make Megan more pleased? She's already a loser. Hell, sister, what's virtue signaling for, anyway? Throw the game. Just do it. [/s]

The Netherlands is a country with a population of about 17 million people, while the USA is a country of over 325 million people. Keeping that in mind, which of those countries is bound to be able to recruit, train, and field a more effective winning woman’s soccer team? I guess we will wait and see what happens. The US team did get a big endorsement when President Trump brought attention to the team, by saying that he wished them luck and hoped that they would win!

The women's soccer thing on goofle isn't particularly appealing to me. But it's nowhere near as Soviet-style-inspired as the stuff I see with AOC's mug on it, where the dingbat looks like she's trying to channel her inner Che Guevara.

Just like millions of American women, Melania Trump pinned Christine Blasey Ford, the first accuser of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, for a liar in her fantastic tale of high school sexual assault. Here's the New York Post: First lady Melania Trump warned her husband that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford was not being truthful when she accused Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in high school, according to a new book. "You know that woman is lying, right?" Melania told the president, in an episode recounted in Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court, the New York Post reported. The book is slated for a Tuesday release.

Helluva warning about the stalemate in Venezuela 5 replies

Venezuela is in a stalemate. Ruled as a colony by its Cuban masters with a little puppet leader in the persona of Nicolás Maduro, it's as bad an economic shambles as Cuba is, and as with Cuba, millions of its people are fleeing. The United Nations declared it a death-squad regime, with 7,000 documented killings of dissidents. There's a legitimate leader in the legislative declaration of Juan Guaidó as president, but the man is powerless without an army to command and sadly fading to irrelevance. But there's not nothing going on. Francisco Toro at the Washington Post has a powerful warning that the Venezuelan vacuum

GENEVA — Venezuelan special forces have carried out thousands of extrajudicial killings in the past 18 months and then manipulated crime scenes to make it look as if the victims had been resisting arrest, the United Nations said on Thursday in a report detailing wide-ranging government abuses targeting political opponents. Special Action Forces described by witnesses as “death squads” killed 5,287 people in 2018 and another 1,569 by mid-May of this year, in what are officially termed by the Venezuelan government “Operations for the Liberation of the People,” United Nations investigators reported.

Cline died in an accident off the Bahamas along with his daughter, Kameron Cline, and five others, Brian Glasser, an attorney who represented Cline, said by telephone.

As Venezuela’s economic and political situation continues to plumb new depths, analysts fret that the crisis is bound to spill over its borders sooner or later. The most obvious candidate for destabilization is Colombia, which lies just across a long, porous, heavily populated border region that stretches over the Andes and down through the Amazon jungle. It’s no picnic having a failed state on your border. As Rwanda found out in the ’90s when the perpetrators of its genocide set up camp across the border in the vast, ungoverned jungles of Congo, security threats quickly become unmanageable if your foe has a safe harbor just across a lightly patrolled border.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is one of the few Democrats who's openly stood up for and defended the socialist Venezuelan regime even as millions of Venezuelans seek to dislodge it from power. She's also gone against the grain by stating she's against horrific prison conditions, even when they involve people she despises such as Paul Manafort, who had been threatened with a stretch on Rikers Island by prosecutors seeking to pressure him to hand over information to arrest President Trump. She's rather rightly called that a matter of principle. Now a report from the United Nations high commissioner of human rights is out, on Venezuela, and it's profoundly ugly.

President Trump holds winning cards on the Census citizenship question, both politically and legally. An overwhelming majority, 67% of Americans, see such a question as legitimate, and those who want to obscure the difference between citizens and non-citizens have an argument that will not add to the ranks of those voting Democrat in the 2020 presidential race. Moreover, despite media spin ("American pride has hit an all-time low, a poll finds") emphasizing the increase in the number of Americans who aren't proud (almost all of the increase among Democrats, who love America only when a Democrat is president), fully 72% of Americans

The economy is roaring as today's non-farm payrolls report shows. June job gains showed a (way) greater-than-expected 224,000 gain. The unemployment rate "nudged" higher to 3.7%, solely because 335,000 discouraged workers are finally reentering the workforce. Fox News' financial expert, Charles Payne, notes that here. It follows on from Wednesday's news that U.S. stocks hit an all-time high, with the DJIA ending at just under 27,000. Nasdaq and S&P hit all-time highs, too. And don't forget the record low black, Latino, female, handicapped, and even ex-con unemployment rates. We've never seen anything like this before.

Today's prize for lack of self-awareness goes to the Austin, Texas city council. While it is fine and dandy for homeless people to camp out in front of people's homes and businesses, with all the problems of human waste, panhandling, mental illness, and open drug use that we in the Bay Area see whenever we venture to take a walk in San Francisco, the wise councilors exempted their own place of business from the such concerns.

Britain's Ambassador to Washington has described Donald Trump as 'inept', 'insecure' and 'incompetent' in a series of explosive memos to Downing Street. Sir Kim Darroch, one of Britain's top diplomats, used secret cables and briefing notes to impugn Trump's character, warning London that the White House was 'uniquely dysfunctional' and that the President's career could end in 'disgrace'. His bombshell comments risk angering the notoriously thin-skinned President and undermining the UK's 'special relationship' with America.

Speaking to TV host Gayle King during the 2019 Essence Festival at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, Obama exclaimed that husband Barack made the presidency “look too easy,” Fox News reported.“I guess it’s kind of like if the black guy can do it, anybody can do it — and that’s not true. It’s a hard job,” Michelle told the crowd.Obama also reminded the audience that she was often portrayed as “an angry black woman who was emasculating her husband.”

Rashida Tlaib’s (D-MI) vow to “impeach the motherf*cker” in the White House. Steele has called Trump a racist on numerous occasions and has emerged as one of MSNBC’s go-to pundits on the Trump administration.

Nike has withdrawn a new Independence Day-themed shoe featuring the Revolutionary War-era flag after former NFL quarterback and Nike-endorser Colin Kaepernick complained that the flag was a symbol of the slave era, according to the Wall Street Journal. Nike offered a lame excuse that it had removed the shoe from retailers because “it featured an old version of the American flag.” In fact, it featured the American flag that was actually in use in 1776 on the original Fourth of July, and it is named for the pioneering Founding Mother to whom its design is commonly attributed, Betsy Ross. As it happens, a version of that very flag
