    My ever inflated ego would love to believe everyone had the date marked on their calendar for this column’s return. My stronger grip on reality takes the “oh please, not HER again approach.

    I wanted to include her photo in her very fetching Saints beanie but alas the picture was too large

    Of course, one advantage is I get to proudly post my Meemaw photo of our newest little sports fan – my little Noodle, Davina. She has gear for every game – Cal, San Jose State (her Auntie Ashleigh goes there), the Saints and the Raiders. On a good weekend, we’ll need to change her clothes several times.

    It’ll be interesting to watch nastiness, dirty plays and antagonism for a change that doesn’t involve a SCOTUS nominee.

    So onward…..random thoughts for the new season:

    Flyboy and I decided we’d give the league another chance this year.  We’ll see if the networks stick to their guns and don’t give these asshat players a spotlight for their anthem antics.  I say broadcast the anthem, networks – there will be at least ONE fine military man or woman or police officer at attention and saluting that you can focus on.  Or the crowd signing (because they do – off-key and badly in many cases, but with all the pride in their country they can muster).

    Nike is doubling down and broadcasting the Krapperdick “sacrifice” ad during the game.  I see vacant chairs, beers being pulled from refrigerators, channels being switched momentarily.  Lot of money to put out for a commercial no one’s going to watch, Nike.  Well, that’s not true.  I’ll watch if the “Krapperdick sacrifice” has something to do with a rotisserie and an open spit.  Nike’s new slogan?  Just D0-fuss.

    Oh, and Krapperdick’s kneeling partner in crime, Eric Reid, safety for the 49ers, was also given his release in May and as of yet is still unemployed.  And I couldn’t be happier.  He can watch the games at Krapper’s house while all the rest of their little friends are out playing.

    So here it is – at my house, the buzz is how the Raiders will do under Gruden and the loss of Kahlil Mack.  Also, we ask ourselves = will the Saints repeat their fantastic season of 2009?  My answer to that is no — hell can only freeze over once….

    So I hope the beer is cold, the wings are spicy and the chips and dips are ready, because HERE WE GO……

    The NFL Matchups

    Bills @ Ravens
    Steelers @ Browns
    Bengals @ Colts
    Titans @ Dolphins
    49ers @Vikings
    Texans @ Patriots
    Buccaneers @ Saints
    Jaguars @ Giants
    Chiefs @ Chargers
    Redskins @ Cardinals
    Cowboys @ Panthers
    Seahawks @ Broncos
    Bears @ Green Bay

    Monday’s Games (the annual Two-Fer!)
    Jets @ Lions
    Rams @ Raiders

    In the MLB, here’s what the Boys of Summer are up to (now that football has hit the airwaves, your best bet to catch will be ESPN (ugh!) or your local station not carrying the football game.  Of course you could buy one of those TV packages):

    Indians @ Blue Jays
    Orioles @ Rays
    Phillies @ Mets
    Padres @ Reds
    Cardinals @ Tigers
    Cubs @ Nationals
    Marlins @ Pirates
    Royals @ Twins
    Angels @ White Sox
    Giants @ Brewers
    Dodgers @ Rockies
    Rangers @ Athletics
    Braves @ D-Backs
    Yankees @ Mariners
    Astros @ Red Sox

    In the PGA, the BMW Championship from Newtown Square PA (CW – your backyard?) had some pretty impressive play by Tiger Woods in the opening round.  Interesting that Tiger leaves the game after a major scandal, eats several humble pies, and returns after rest and recuperation.  And the result?  He’s brought back the crowds to the lesser tournaments.  Sure, you see huge galleries at the Masters, the U.S. Open, the Players and the PGA Championship, but when you get that sized gallery at the Bridgestone, it’s a feat.  Also full props to Tiger for not taking the bait and the opportunity to trash Trump last week.  American sports fans do love to embrace their errant kids.  (Uh, not to fast, Krapperdick – I said “errant kids” – not juvenile delinquents – you can go sit over there with Michael Vick).

      they did, by 5 points. they were two point underdogs, meaning that the money said that BYU would win by 2.

      well, Cal won by 3, therefore, they not only beat the spread by 5 but also won the game in a minor upset.

      @ coldwarrior:

      even if Cal were a 2 point favorite at BYU (meaning that BYU would ‘start’ with 2 points) Cal still beat the spread by winning by 3.

      Having lived the past couple of decades being exposed to the Middle Eastern “culture”, I begin to have an appreciation for the Old Testament and God’s commands to totally exterminate the people whom the Israelites were conquering. There are truly some cultures so evil that they need to be eradicated.

      Just to add on — when you have a culture that teaches its children, down to preschoolers that they should support killing people whom they’ve never even met and that killing them to advance their religion vs. defending themselves from aggression is OK, you have a very sick culture.

      The PRC/PLA attempted to fund the expansion of the Fiji Army’s Black Rock base at Nadi, but the move was blocked by Canberra who moved fast to offer more money and turn the base into a regional training base for Pacific military and police forces.

      In 2015, the PRC offered to establish a naval base in Fiji and since a 2011 agreement has supplied 50 police vehicles as well as training Fijian police in China.

      Apart from Luganville in Vanuatu, the PRC also sought a base on Manus Island (PNG) which was a major US Marine base during the war.

      I don’t have any further information on the Manus Island attempt.

      The MO of the Chinese is to ‘hook’ Pacific nations with cheap loans for pointless infrastructure projects built by Chinese labour , allow the short term loans to mature. Then reel then in. Jack up the interest rates on the loans and force default. Then in reparation demand long term leases or outright seizing of assets in the Pacific on which dual use and pure military bases are built.

      Did I mention corruption?

      Buying a Pacific leader is often the cheaper option by China.

      In the wind up to the Pacific Forum the majority of member nations DEMANDED that Australia and NZ pay over US$2.2 billion in ‘aide’ . Not into building hospitals, water treatment plants, wharfs and infrastructure. They demanded access to the ‘aide’ so that they could directly prop up their budgetary bottom lines that allowed them to spend like drunken sailors. Did I also mention corruption?

      🙂

      This is an extortion racket and the Chinese are gagging to get a seat at the table so that they can buy a brace of corrupt Pacific leaders.

      Today is the 16th day since the publication of Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano’s “Testimony.” (The full text is here; it was made public on the evening of August 25.)

      And today comes almost incredible news — and perhaps not credible, since it is not yet officially confirmed. So it might be best to call it “rumor,” not news.

      But, in the nature of things, we are unlikely to get any confirmation of this type of news, because it involves covert operations. The only way “news” about such things, never announced officially, is ever made public is through leaks, whispers, indiscretions from unnamed “sources.” And that seems to be the case regarding this “rumor.”

      The “rumor” is that the Vatican leadership has given orders to its “internal and external security services” to use its “intelligence resources” to locate the physical whereabouts of Archbishop Viganò with the end goal of charging Vigano with crimes against Vatican rules against revealing state secrets.

      In other words, Vatican security officers have been instructed to find Vigano, wherever he is.

      To do so, of course, they will use every channel available to them, including asking for help from police and intelligence agencies outside of the Vatican, agencies with whom the Vatican has working agreements.

      If this is true, a global search on to find Vigano is now on.

      Vigano has not appeared publicly since his “Testimony” was published.

      A friend writes to me: “If this report is accurate, then the Holy Father is essentially acknowledging the veracity of Vigano’s accusations. Unless Vigano’s letter were substantively accurate, there would be no material basis for these criminal charges. Leaving aside, of course, the horrible optics of the only accountability here being for the person who brought these horrible deeds to light…”

      I add: this action is not necessarily taken by the Pope himself; it may be that it is being taken (if it is being taken) without the Pope’s knowledge or approval. So my friend may not be correct when he writes “if this report is accurate, then the Holy Father is essentially acknowledging…” The bureaucratic machinery of the Holy See is now in motion, and it is not clear what is being done by Vatican officials acting under the Pope’s direct instructions, and what is being done by these advisers and officials without the Pope’s full knowledge and approval.

      One other note.

      I received a call from Rome yesterday, asking me for insight about why Pope Francis has not yet agreed to an August 29 request from Cardinal Daniel Di Nardo, archbishop of Houston, Texas, and President of the U.S. Bishops’ Conference, to have a personal meeting with Francis to discuss the entire situation. (link) On this matter, I have no special knowledge, but also in this case it seems possible that the Pope may not have been informed, or fully informed, of Di Nardo’s request for the meeting, or of why it is urgent.

      ============================

      The hunt for Vigano?

      This report was published two days ago, on September 7, by ChurchMilitant.com, the web site run by Michael Voris, a Catholic journalist and ex-seminarian of the Archdiocese of New York.

      The report was also picked up in Italy by Vaticanist Marco Tosatti, a colleague (link). Tosatti knows Vigano personally — he met with Vigano on August 22 and for three hours helped him do the final editing on his “Testimony.” (For that matter, I also know Vigano personally, and have met with him privately on many occasions over the past few years.)

      THE HUNT FOR VIGANÒ: VATICAN SPIES TRACKING WHISTLEBLOWER (link)

      by Church Militant • ChurchMilitant.com

      September 7, 2018

      By Rev. Michael X., JCL

      Vatican officials are on the hunt for Abp. Carlo Maria Viganò.

      According to sources within the Vatican, the Secretariat of State of the Holy See — under the direction of Pietro Cardinal Parolin — has communicated an instruction to its internal and external security services to use its “intelligence resources” to locate the physical whereabouts of Abp. Viganò.

      This request has been communicated not only in order to prevent more unpredictable damage to the image of Pope Francis and the Holy See on the world stage, but also to “prepare the terrain” for the former apostolic nuncio-turned-whistleblower to be prosecuted for alleged multiple crimes against Vatican and Church law.

      The urgency with which the location of Abp. Viganò is being sought is all the more palpable since, according to canon 1507 of the Code of Canon Law and other procedural and penal norms of the Holy See and Vatican City State, Abp. Viganò cannot be prosecuted or even punished unless he first be given the opportunity to be officially notified in writing of the specific canonical and Vatican crimes he is alleged to have committed and be given the opportunity to defend himself against them.

      As first reported by the very well-informed Baron Roberto de Mattei (Corrispondenza Romana, September 5), criminal counts are said to be in the process of being researched and drafted in a libellus accusatorius (canonical criminal complaint) for Viganò having allegedly committed perjury for his having breached pontifical and other forms of state secrecy in violation of, among other norms, the Instruction Secreta continere on the Pontifical Secret issued on February 4, 1974 by John Cardinal Villot, Secretary of State of the Vatican.

      The specific Norms of Secreta being researched for applicability and evidence in support of potential prosecution include:

      1. Art. I-4 for Abp. Viganò’s alleged divulgation of extrajudicial denunciations received by him during his service of the Holy See regarding crimes against faith and morals and the Sacrament of Penance, and the process and decision pertaining to the handling of these denunciations regarding Theodore Cardinal McCarrick and other clerics referenced by Viganò in his testimony and in the articles of journalists to whom the archbishop is alleged to have disseminated such classified information;

      2. Art. I-7 for his alleged dissemination of Vatican secrets gained by reason of office pertaining to appointments of bishops, specifically regarding the appointment of Cdl. Blase Cupich as archbishop of Chicago, Illinois;

      3. Art. I-9 for his alleged divulgation of the electronically encrypted order transmitted by the Secretariat of State to Abp. Viganò regarding the appointment of Bp. Robert McElroy to the see of San Diego, California;

      4. Art. I-10 for his breaching of “business or matters which are so grave in nature that they are placed under the Pontifical Secret by the Supreme Pontiff or a Cardinal of the relevant Dicastery.”

      News of the Vatican deploying its vast international resources to track down and prosecute Abp. Viganò are consistent with his assertions made to [veteran Italian Catholic Vaticanist] Aldo Maria Valli on their final encounter: that Viganò had “purchased a plane ticket,” that he was “traveling abroad,” that he “could not tell [Valli] where,” that Valli “should not try to find him,” that “his old cellular number will no longer be functioning,” and that they “saluted each other one last time.”

      Viganò, in saying goodbye to Valli, appears to have known exactly what the worst elements of the Vatican and its agents are capable of.

      Let us hope he has taken every necessary precaution from falling into the hands of those who would wish him ill.

      Hogg is going to find himself getting the Cindy Sheehan treatment shortly, if it hasn’t already started. I imagine he’s been contacting campaign after campaign asking if they want him to come for an appearance and is being told “NO” everywhere. After this disastrous performance in Canada, Soros will probably pull his funding of this twerp’s travel budget.

      Mandatory evacuations ordered for entire South Carolina coastline ahead of Hurricane Florence
      “We are not going to gamble with the lives of the people of South Carolina,” Gov. Henry McMaster said.

      But if a residence is built specifically for this type of storm why evacuate?

      I am hoping to build such a place on the Texas coast, or inland.

      The ideal land would be directly on the coast or next to a major river.

      None of this bullshit sub divisions behind levees. Once the water comes over the levee it takes weeks for it to drain away. Build next to a river or the shore. Water rises fast, water goes away fast.

      I do not have enough cash yet. No way will I get a loan to build what I want to build on a flood plain. But I think I can do it. A 600-1000 sq ft kind of “tiny home” on stilts.

      Concrete stilts and the floor, walls and even roof will be at least 6 inch reinforced concrete.

      Not a traditional shape either. Imagine a ladybug shape. Aerodynamic. We have all seen ladybugs clinging to the windshield while we are going 60mph. And they are just hanging onto smooth glass.

      I even have a way to protect my vehicle from a flood. A car hoist is about $2000 and lifts it up 6 feet.

      I have a dream……

      Trick question. Implies that a Muslim can serve as a federal judge.

      Since believing Muslims consider Sharia to outweigh “man-mad” law, I don’t believe that they can.

      “I’ve never seen instance when the president is so detached from the reality of what’s going on,” Woodward said.

      “This has not been treated seriously enough,” Woodward said on “Today.” “The things that Trump did and does jeopardizes the real national security.”

      STUNNING: Tucker Carlson Reveals Explosive Email from Google Exec on How Company Actively Assisted Hillary in 2016 (VIDEO)

      FOX News host Tucker Carlson revealed evidence on Monday on Google was actively working to get Hillary Clinton elected and now there is evidence.

      Tucker Carlson has an email from Google executive who admitted in her correspondence to top Google officials on how disappointed she was that Hillary Clinton lost after all of the work the company did for Hillary as a silent donation.

      The email came from Senior employee Eliana Murillo, the former head of Google’s multicultural marketing department. Eliana deployed the company’s resources to increase voter turnout in ways she believed would help the Clinton campaign win in the last election.

      Eliana’s tweets were recently set to private.

      Eliana sent the email on November 9, 2016, that was one day after the presidential election. The email was forwarded by two Google vice presidents to more staff members throughout the company. Eliana touted Google’s multifaceted efforts to boost Hispanic turnout. She knows Latinos voted in record numbers especially in states like Georgia, Nevada and Arizona – “a key state for us.” Eliana admitted Google used its power to ensure millions of people saw certain hashtags and social media impressions. The goal was to influence behavior during the election.

      Google also supported partners like Voto Latino to offer rides to polling stations.

      Google described this as a “silent donation” to the far left group.
      So here is the proof that Google is using its power to shape American elections, speech and culture.

      Isn’t it about time Republicans and the US government act on Google?

      The “rumor” is that the Vatican leadership has given orders to its “internal and external security services” to use its “intelligence resources” to locate the physical whereabouts of Archbishop Viganò with the end goal of charging Vigano with crimes against Vatican rules against revealing state secrets.

      One certain Dr. Martin Luther had similar actions taken agains him when he pointed out the abuses of the Catholic church.

      Pope Francis is probably remembering how the Americans, chasing up leads from New York-based FIFA member Chuck Blazer, put some spine into the Swiss police to raid the Baur au Lac hotel in Zurich that fateful May morning in 2015.

      Which eventually led to Blatter’s disgraced exit from world football.

      https://www.bauraulac.ch/en

      The Vatican Don Corleone is probably taking advice from the fellow Catholic former FIFA Don as we speak.

      But seriously, has Church Militant (or anyone) released any more on this? :

      And further to all this, Church Militant has also learned that Cardinals McCarrick and Wuerl were both working behind the scenes with Pope Francis’ Vatican, anticipating and preparing for a Hillary victory in 2016, laying the groundwork for the Vatican to start working with a Clinton White House to advance a worldwide liberal agenda.

      That, of course, did not happen. What has happened instead is a frosty relationship between Rome and Washington, D.C., even somewhat visible during the May 2017 visit of President Donald Trump to the Vatican to see the Pope.

      On that we are going to need to agree to disagree. Restoring the scripture and the pure teaching of salvation by grace through faith was hardly degenerate.

      i was in the outer banks some years ago, heavy hurricane area. i came upon this toroid shaped house just back from the beach on many phone pole stilts.fortunately, i had taken an aerodynamics course and immediately recognized the genius of the design…minimal wind load on the structure. the owner explained the real secret:

      i walked up to from the beach and must have looked completely amazed. the owner came up to me and introduced himself, a retired aerodynamics phd…while the hole in the middle wasn’t huge, maybe 4 feet across, it removed any pressure gradient (lift) from the structure and the curved toroid shape produced very little lift and could withstand ridiculous amount of wind load as proven in wind tunnel designs. he said this ne was just a proof of concept…i wonder if any more got built

      brilliant.
