Pretty sure there are about 63,000,000 folks that will never buy Nike again. I’m one of them. It’s probably a great stock to short. IMHO, someone is propping up the price! This is a globalist corporation if there ever was one. They are anti American flag and anti America! Something stinks to high heaven with Nike...

Not many people watch these award shows anymore. I stopped watching when Whoopi Goldberg didn't win for The Color Purple. No, not a fan of the woman but just rewatched it and she was amazing. Plus they started awarding movies no one saw, like Chariots of Fire and Ghandi, and ignoring ET which was a gigantic success. Award shows now are just patting each other on the back and sometimes patting themselves on the back.

THE VILLAGES – President Trump said he would protect the federal government’s Medicare program from “socialism” and praised Gov. Ron DeSantis’ prescription drug importation law during his visit to The Villages on Thursday.But at his first large event before a friendly crowd since Congress began impeachment hearings last week, he couldn’t resist attacking his political opponents, despite the event being billed as non-political.“These people on the other side, these people are crazy, by the way,” Trump said of Democrats. “They want to take it away, give you lousy health care.

Clint Eastwood’s latest directorial effort has the media in its sights. “Richard Jewell” tells the story of one of the earliest notable victims of out-of-control government agencies and fake news. Richard Jewell saved countless lives at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Ga. Working security, the man found a backpack with three pipe bombs in it. He alerted police and helped to evacuate the area. Though his actions were nothing short of heroic, Jewell was then at the center of a media firestorm. With outlets reporting incomplete and false information, Jewell was painted as a prime suspect. It didn’t help either that federal agencies went along with this narrative and

A pair of recent surveys suggest that Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s contentious confirmation has not undermined public confidence in the Supreme Court.The studies, from Gallup and the Pew Research Center, show a majority of respondents approve of the Court’s job performance or have a favorable view of the institution. The figures in both polls are consistent with results both organizations recorded shortly before Kavanaugh’s nomination.A Wednesday Gallup report shows the justices command a 54% job approval rating ahead of the start of their new term on Oct. 7, drawing positive responses from a majority of Republicans, independents, and one-third of Democrats.

He wrote, ““Unfortunately, you have given no clear indication as to how your impeachment inquiry will proceed – including whether key historical precedents or basic standards of due process will be observed.

The great triumph of recent American politics is for the people of your fine country to have elected as president a man who is the precise embodiment of what supercilious Europeans think Americans are really like. Pig-ignorant, arrogant, jingoistic, contemptuous of foreigners, loud-mouthed, badly dressed and irredeemably bumptious. So consuming is the European antipathy toward Donald Trump — he’s never read a book! He eats steak with ketchup! — that it afflicts leading politicians across our continent, people who would be better advised to button it a while and show a little bit of diplomacy to the leader of the free world. But they can’t: the contempt always bleeds through.

"Have you heard from the whistleblower?" MSNBC contributor Sam Stein asked House intelligence committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on September 17, nine days before the complaint was released to the public. "We have not spoken directly with the whistleblower," Schiff responded at the time, never mentioning that one of his committee staffers had directly spoken to the whistleblower -- and that the staffer "shared some of what the [whistleblower] conveyed" with Schiff, according to the New York Times. The New York Times says the staffer referred the whistleblower to a (Democrat-connected) attorney to help him file a formal complaint with the intelligence community inspector general.

Speaking at a press conference Wednesday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff reaffirmed Democrats’ new stance that they’ll consider any resistance from the administration as “further evidence of obstruction.” “Of course that was an article of impeachment against President Nixon,” the California Democrat said. For his part, Mr. Trump said Wednesday he was willing to go along with Democrats, but it’s not clear how far that cooperation will extend.

Within hours of suffering chest pains Tuesday night, Bernie Sanders had stents inserted to relieve the blockage in an artery. He’s lucky. Because if Sanders lived under “Medicare for All,” things likely would not have gone as well. Sanders, along with every other Democrat pushing “Medicare for All” and its variants, constantly bleat about how the U.S. spends far more on health care but gets worse results than countries such as Canada or the U.K. But the quality measures – infant mortality and longevity – are notoriously unreliable for international comparisons. Infant mortality rates depend on how countries measure them, and longevity has more to do with things like

Her suggestion – eat babies. Her t-shirt has AOC’s next campaign slogan – Save the Planet – Eat the Children. The poor child promoting infant cannibalism as a solution to Climate Change hysteria is not having an original thought. The idea is being promoted by Stockholm School of Economics professor and researcher Magnus Soderlund. His argument for human cannibalism, or to eat the babies, was part of the panel talk “Can you Imagine Eating Human Flesh?. Simply astounding!
