Thanks to WikiLeaks, we no longer need to wonder whether the press and the dirty democrats have been in collusion. We now have several smoking guns. By all rights, these findings should disqualify them and Hillary. Of course it won’t. Will these revelations make a different in a couple of weeks? Who knows.
A professor at Yale University has lost his job over comments he made in an email explaining to students that they should just look away if the witness an offensive or culturally appropriated Halloween costume. Both he and his wife, who also lost her job over the matter, had the nerve to tell the student body that people should be allowed to wear whatever costume they wished.
The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree in Hillary Clinton campaign, as her staff is repeatedly and knowing fleecing small donation supporters. Banks are complaining of the myriad of phone calls they are receiving, that the Clinton campaign is making unauthorized withdrawals and frankly skirting the law to do so. As one donor said that it is criminal and anyone else would be in jail.
It seems 49ers Quarterback Colin Kapernick has a radical Marxist girlfriend/fiancée that may be influencing him and changing his view of America. Kapernick’s now infamous National Anthem sit down/kneel down tantrum may have been the work or idea of the girlfriend, Nessa Diab.

The National Football League has made the headlines recently. Unfortunately, not for the right reasons.
This weekend was the kickoff of the 2016 NFL season. Being that it long-ago supplanted baseball as America’s pastime, one would expect it to be in the news – that and fantasy football has become a nationwide obsession.
Yet it is the ridiculous antics of a few players which have stolen the headlines. It’s well known what the San Francisco quarterback did during the preseason. By sitting or taking a knee during the pregame national anthem, he has injected politics into the NFL. Since then, a few others have followed suit, claiming they too are taking a stand (or a seat, or a knee) against racism and oppression in America – the pet cause of charlatans and race-hustlers.
And for the antics that detract from the game we love, the NFL does nothing and says little – no fines, no game suspensions – nothing. We all know these fools have every right to protest and support their phony cause – and to that I am in full agreement.
Colin Kapernick, Quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, was caught sitting during the pregame National Anthem. He wasn’t in deep meditation, concentrating on the game. He didn’t merely neglect to stand. No – he was making a statement regarding the oppression of black people in America.
Two differing reports on the very same event happened recently. The lefty news reporting agency Reuters, shall we say, sugar-coated the incident off the coast of Iran between an American Destroyer and Iranian patrol boats, whereas USNI News gave us a full and correct accounting of events as they really occurred.

It’s not often I repeat myself, but considering I discussed this topic in my last podcast, I guess it’s only half repeating. You may listen to it here.
But this one just irks me – the fact that our government is so hard up for money it has to tax our Olympic medalists. Oh sure – there is a way to avoid paying the tax. Just compete, but make sure you don’t medal. Come in fourth – or last.
I guess in a way you could call it an optional tax – like a sales tax. If you don’t wish to pay the tax, don’t purchase the item.
I’m actually a big advocate of the sales tax, in lieu of others. It really is the only optional tax – assuming you are like the rest of us and in fact not immortal, thereby able to forgo the death tax. Other than that, our government has seen to it that everyone pays up.
But what bureaucratic brainiac consciously made the decision to tax our Olympic athletes? Was it some 98 pound chicken-necked little worm in the back room of a DC office who may have been slighted by a jock in high school?
It has been dubbed the “victory tax” and is said to be opposed by Congress. But I guess it’s not opposed by enough of them, for there is presently a bill waiting to be passed that has yet to be. Maybe with a little more publicity it may gain some traction, but I doubt it. It’s much easier to pass a bill adding to the already bloated coffers of government then to pass one which could help our athletes who train their whole lives for chance to represent OUR country.
Who knew Gold medals were taxed. Well, we should have – everything else is. Yes – American athletes return triumphantly from Rio proudly adorned with the hardware they worked their whole lives to win – only to be greeted at the gate by the taxman.
Black Lives Matter strikes again – and this time without saying a word. The NFL has denied a request by the Dallas Cowboys to place a sticker on their helmets honoring the Dallas Police Department – and all cops. Somehow it would stir up controversy and make a political statement.
Hillary has released one year, 2015, of her and Bill’s tax returns and charitable giving – but just one year. I discuss what a set-up this is and what a shame the return actually is.
The left stigmatizes our 1st gold medal winner
You don’t get much more left than NBC/Comcast. This is virtually the only cable company in America that has refused to add The Blaze TV to its cable lineup. Sure, it was one of the first to add al-Jazeera America, or some might know it as Jihadi-TV. They’ll jump at that chance – but Glenn Beck? Never.
So it’s no surprise that the media conglomerate continually bids to air the Olympics. The coverage of the Olympics used to be about the competition – highly trained athletes at the top of their respective sports going at it until only one (or one team) comes away with gold.
Gizmag first met garage inventor Jason Woods back in 2011. Since then the Kymera jet-powered body board has been evolving into what is now a nearly production-ready machine complete with official specifications and pricing. We recently had some fun on the water putting the board through its paces.
Out of the car and into the water
Although it’s been quite some time in coming, the painful birth has produced a nice looking baby. At 46 lb (21 kg), it’s light enough to easily carry from the parking lot to the shoreline, although with a separate trip to grab the 24-lb (11-kg) battery. Even with that second trip, unless you’ve got to stop to put on a wet suit, you can still be out of the car and into the water in less than two minutes if you snagged a good parking spot.
Practice makes perfect.
For most of us, that saying holds some weight – the more you practice something, the better you will get at it.
But new research shows it is not that simple for professional athletes.
Some experts believe we are reaching the limit of what training and practice can achieve, and that soon record-breaking athletes will be a thing of the past.
