    4/4 in RWC predictions

    18/34 so far…1200/$1000 so far.

    THE RUGBY WORLD CUP:

    Saturday OCT 26 0400…England versus New Zealand. England can be the best side in the world when they want to be, New Zealand is the team to beat. The All Blacks win this one.

    Sunday OCT 27 0500…Wales Versus Sud Afrika. Sorry, Wales. You are meeting a juggernaut.

    COLLEGE FOOTBALL:

    18/34 so far…1200/$1000, we had a 3/4 week last week. Each bet is $100.

    Miami at Pittsburgh – Sat, Oct 26, 12:00 PM ET…It’s my beloved Panthers versus the hated criminal element. The felons are getting 6 on the road and my beloved Panthers will not beat that spread. This is too much of a rivalry and will be close.

    #13 Wisconsin at #3 Ohio State – Sat, Oct 26, 12:00 PM ET…The Buckeyes really haven’t played anyone yet this year. The Badgers are getting 14 at The Shoe and beat this spread. The Buckeyes still have Michigan and PSU on their schedule.

    #6 Penn State at Michigan State – Sat, Oct 26, 3:30 PM ET…PSU is getting 6.5 on the road and beat this spread.

    #9 Auburn at #2 LSU – Sat, Oct 26, 3:30 PM ET…War Eagle are getting 10.5 on the road and man, I am torn on this…they don’t beat the spread. (I originally had them to cover…but that LSU offense….)

    #8 Notre Dame at #19 Michigan – Sat, Oct 26, 7:30 PM ET…Most houses have this a pick ’em. Betradar has ND as a 1.5 dog. OK, I’ll take ND to beat that spread.

      Utah will be beating up on Cal. I should learn not to get my hopes high early in the season. It was always the same with the Saints. Started off the season pretty damn well…then folded like a cheap card table. Before the age of Brees that is. Was more than a little pleased to see us win last Sunday, since Chicago was favored by 5 and we beat ’em by 11.

      My theory on Ohio State is that the BCS always wants them in the playoffs. So they give them as many cupcake games as they can. (Your mileage may vary of course). But eventually they do have to face the big guns in the Big 10. I’ll be rooting for Michgan (had a boyfriend once that lived, breathed and ate the Buckeyes – bad breakup).

      Mark Levin reporting (from what he describes as a very good source) that Andy McCabe was offered a pre-indictment plea agreement by John Durham. McCabe turned it down & Durham then moved to empanel a grand jury.

      https://twitter.com/MarieNoel45/status/1187870092526313472

      So he’s not going to flip McCabe, which means McCabe goes down.

      McCabe, Clapper, Brennan – what will CNN do when half their line-up is in the slammer?

      SoCal Wildfire update.

      So the power went out this morning at 3:30am. At 9:45 a wildfire started about 7 miles from my house. At 10:30, grampa, my nephew and I bailed from work and rushed home to secure what needed to be secured.

      10 minutes ago the power came back on. The fire is not out yet and is still 6 or 7 miles away. CalFires says it is 50 percent contained… however, we are expecting 80+ mph winds tonight and tomorrow. So, shit could change dramatically at a moments notice.

      @ The Barbarian:

      Buckeyes have beaten the “big guns” of the Big 10 consistently and sorry to hear about the ex Michigan BF. Penn State is the big rivalry these days, but the Game is still a favourite for the Thanksgiving holidays.

      Wisconsin is overrated and won’t beat the spread.

      I wonder if Schumer’s aware of what’s happening in California at the moment? He has great timing:

      Schumer Announces Plan To Nix Virtually Every Gas Powered Vehicle In The Country

      Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer is preparing to spend hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars on a plan that would fast-track the elimination of nearly every gas-powered vehicle in the country.

      The Senate’s top Democrat wants to spend a massive amount of money enticing Americans to exchange their gas-guzzling vehicles for an electric car. Schumer’s proposal, which he announced in a New York Times editorial Thursday, shows Democrats are lurching leftward on the issue.

      “That’s why I am announcing a new proposal designed to rapidly phase out gas-powered vehicles and replace them with zero-emission, or ‘clean,’ vehicles like electric cars,” Schumer wrote after suggesting scientists agree that climate change represents an imminent threat to the U.S.

      He added: “The goal of the plan, which also aims to spur a transformation in American manufacturing, is that by 2040 all vehicles on the road should be clean.” The plan would remove more than 63 million gas-powered cars from the road by 2030, Schumer estimates.

      Boy, what did Elon promise/pay him? Did you see Musk wants to mandate all side mirrors be phased out, for cameras I think.

      My primary grocery store, Wegmans, just took 2 parking spaces nearest the door and converted them to electric car charging spaces. And they’re FREE! I talked to one of the installers who told me it’s paid for by propa – um, ‘advertising’.

      The ABs beaten by a better defensive side on the night.

      There was just no way through that white wall for the ABs.

      I’d hate to be the next team that will face the ABs after a defeat. Probably Wales as the Springboks will be too tough for the Welshment today.

      So we will probably be looking at an England Springbok Final!

      Ultimate defence vs ultimate attack.

      Should be a great game

      Someone asked the Wallabies management whether they were mission Israel Fillou yet…. much ….

      Half of the Wallabies are from the Pacific Islands and are church going Christians. They looked as if they were playing without their hearts in the game.

      I wonder whether the Qantas Airlines CEO will now stick with the Wallabies as they hav e apparently lost their mojo now that Qantas and Landrover and other sponsors sold out to anti-Christian Rainbow LBGTIQWERTY activists that saw Fillou tossed from the team.

      Israel Fillou is suing the Australian Rugby Football Uniuon for gazillions for wrongful dismissal. The lesbian CEO of the ARFU bit off more than she could chew and this will now financially break the ARFU.

      Politics, especially gender politics and sport just do not mix.

      Qantas found that out to its chagrin! So did the management of the ARFU.

      That’s a feature, not a bug. Electric cars require power from a central utility plant or somewhat extraordinary measures to get power. If government can set things up like California did to shut down the power, they shut down the free movement of their subjects. That’s one of the reasons they love trains and mass transit. Government gets to control when and where those modes of transport go.

      Well, there’s a report on a US-led chopper attack outside Idlib against a high-value target. People are extrapolating we nailed Baghdadi.

      I think this would be about the 10th time we got him, so I’m guessing they’re hoping it’s true sooner or later. There’s zero confirmation of anything

      Totally off topic, someone here said they were watching “The Dish”

      I watched it many years ago when it was first released in the USA. A DVD rental. I thought it was awesome.

      It was a “fictionalized” version of real events. An Australian movie.

      I also recommend The World’s Fastest Indian, a New Zealand movie.

      The point? Australia and New Zealand produce awesome movies and TV series that are not typical Hollywood crap.

      Currently watching “Rescue Special Ops” season one episode one ( Australian ) so I cannot comment about it yet but it looks promising.

      Oh being honest, males with an Australian accent are annoying, they all talk like crocodile dundee man.

      However ladies with an Australian accent?

      In love….. 🙂 🙂 🙂

      There is a Australian version of Quincy that I watch when I can find the new episodes, Its called “Harrow”. Yes he is a M.E. who solves murders. Yes he lives on a boat. A bit darker than the original Quincy, but the Aussies did a wonderful job of it.

They have fully bought in to the idea that we have too many people and that too many people cherish their freedom.

      Putting together the most reliable sources I know of:

      _we found him because somebody in his inner circle was captured w/interesting docs, by Iraq it looks like

      -U.S. forces launched from al-Asad air base not Incirlik. Originally 6 choppers, perhaps 2 more arrived on scene later

      – He splody-doped himself, but we managed to do a Kathy Griffin and grab his head so we have biometric/DNA (THAT one is from Jennifer Griffin)

      -He was found in Turkish-controlled area but Turks did not assist and were not informed of the raid. Russia, however, was given a heads up via the de-conflict channels

      -Kurds assisted somehow, I think with intel

      -Zero U.S. forces casualties

      Some bright & shiny asked by what right, moral or international law, we have the right to ‘take Syrian oil’

      Graham had to explain the strategy, that it’s going to the Kurds, a point that should have been obvious last week when Trump went public that we were going to cover those resources. Bright & Shiny looked confused.

      WOW! Talk About Poor Timing!… SNL Hacks Play ISIS Terrorists – Thank Trump ‘For Bringing Back Jobs to ISIS’ in SNL Cold Open Skit… As Trump Sends Al-Baghdadi to Hell

      SNL has poked fun at Trump’s decision to withdraw troops from Syria by having cast member Pete Davidson play a recently-freed member of ISIS who thanks the President for ‘bringing back jobs for terrorists’.

      Alec Baldwin returned to the program to play the Commander-in-chief in the sketch, which took place at a fictional Trump rally in New Mexico.

      ‘And where are you from?’ Baldwin asks Davidson’s character after inviting him up onto the stage.

      ‘ISIS!’ Davidson responds. ‘I was a prisoner in Syria until last week when you freed me, so I just wanted to say, thank you for bringing jobs back to ISIS.

      The foreign news and opinion pages of WaPo are wholly owned by Qatar. The editor of the foreign opinion pages, Karen Somebody Whose Last Name I Forget, is still pushing the lie that Kashoggi was a WaPo journalist instead of an MB plant and who has printed editorials supposedly written by the leader of the Houthis, Mohammed al-Houthi – who is illiterate in his own language.

      The official with the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces — who asked not to be named because he is not authorized to speak on the issue — says IS spokesman Abu Hassan al-Muhajir had been killed, after SDF chief Mazloum Abdi said he had been “targeted” in a fresh raid.

      “Al-Muhajir, the right-hand of Baghdadi and the spokesman for IS, was targeted in the village of Ain al-Baydah near Jarablus, in a coordinated operation between SDF intelligence and the US army,” Abdi writes on Twitter.

      I didn’t know this. Kayla Mueller is the name of the aid worker held by Abu Sayyaf and his wife on Baghdadi’s orders and ultimately killed, probably by Baghdadi. The U.S. generals named the operation to kill Baghdadi after her, Operation Kayla.

      Abu Sayyif’s wife Umm, was Kayla’s day-to-day jailer for awhile. Umm is in detention, awaiting her own execution. She was interviewed about Kayla, among other things. This is an interesting, heartbreaking story

      Umm Sayyaf corroborates claims that Mueller, from Prescott in Arizona, was brought to the property in Shadadah by Abu Sayyaf around 24 September 2014. At about the same time, he also brought the Yazidis. “The Yazidi girls changed not only my life, but the lives of all the girls in the Islamic State,” she said from a meeting room inside a counter-terrorism prison in Erbil. “Our husbands became like wild animals when they were around. They had no respect for us.”

      “But she was treated differently from the Yazidis,” Umm Sayyaf said of Mueller. “There was a budget for her. Pocket money to buy things from the shop. She was a lovely girl and I liked her. She was very respectful and I respected her. One thing I would say is she was very good at hiding her sadness and pain.”

      Former Rep. John Conyers dies at 90

      Former Rep. John Conyers, a longtime Michigan Democrat who represented parts of Detroit for more than 50 years before his resignation in 2017, died Sunday at age 90, his son, John Conyers III, told CNN.

      A founding member of the Congressional Black Caucus, Conyers was known as pushing a series of liberal causes, especially from his perch on the Judiciary Committee. He at one time served as chairman of the panel.

      Conyers was born in Detroit in 1929 and entered Congress in 1965 where he championed the Civil Rights Movement and pushed liberal legislation throughout his tenure.

      Conyers’ longevity in Congress was punctuated by a contentious resignation in 2017 amid allegations of sexual harassment.

      The Michigan Democrat faced an investigation by the House Ethics Committee into multiple allegations that he had sexually harassed women who worked with him when he told a Detroit area radio show that he’d step down from his seat in Congress.

      “My legacy can’t be compromised or diminished in any way by what we’re going through now,” he told the Mildred Gaddis’ radio show at the time. “This too shall pass.” Conyers repeatedly denied wrongdoing.

      Israel Fillou yet…. much ….

      Half of the Wallabies are from the Pacific Islands and are church going Christians. They looked as if they were playing without their hearts in the game.

      what is this about? who is Israel Fillou?

      Israel Fillou is / was only the best back line member of the Wallabies team for at least a generation. He was ambushed by the leftist MSM and asked a leading question about the LGBTQWERTY community. He quoted back to the media the quote plus the chapter and verse from the Bible and all hell suddenly broke loose. (pardon the pun). The media thought that he would fold like a cheap deck chair but he stood his ground for weeks as a media storm raged around him. Then the gay friendly sponsors got involved, especially the CEO of QANTAS Airlines who is a major supporter of all things LGBTQWERTY and the key sponsor of the Australian Rugby Football Union. The CEO of the ARFU who also happens to be a lesbian activist got in on the act and the two of then started to ‘monster’ Fillau and threaten him with dismissal from the Wallabies unless he backed down completely and apologised to the LGBTQWERTY community. He tole the ARFU where they could post that threat and doubled down. He was dismissed from the ARFU and the Wallabies. Alas for both QANTAS and the ARFU Fillou’s case for wrongful dismissal is rock solid. He is seeing the ARFU for millions and will cause the ARFU to declare bankruptcy if he gets the full amount through the courts.

      As half of the Wallabies team are made up of church going Christian Pacific Islanders the morale of the Wallabies is in the toilet, and this was reflected in their World Cup performance. So with QANTAS , Landrover and other LGBTQWERTY friendly ARFU sponsors all trying to outdo each other in PC virtue signalling over this sexual politics issue, the stage is set for the destruction of the ARFU and the trashing of the sponsors investment into the Wallabies brand.

      Sexual politics or for that matter any politics are anathema to sport. The politics has now got so toxic that when Fillou tried to play Rugby League (form of the sport) for Samoa he was attacked by the media and most progressive pundits who have a personal political axe to grind with him. Samoa tole the Australia Rugby League to shove their orders where the sun doesn’t shine!

      QANTAS and the ARFU sewed the wind and just reaped the whirlwind.

      crap. Vladimir Bukovsky has died. I’ve downloaded his most recent book, Judgement in Moscow but haven’t read it yet

      —-
      Bukovsky first gained notoriety as a student writer and organizer in Moscow. In 1963, he was arrested for possessing forbidden literature. Rather than put him on trial, Soviet authorities had him declared mentally ill and locked him in a psychiatric hospital — a common tactic used in the USSR to discredit dissenters and confine them without appearing to be holding political prisoners. He was arrested again in 1967 and sent to a labor camp for three years.

      After his release, Bukovsky created an international uproar when he had psychiatric hospital records for six well-known dissidents smuggled to the West in 1971. International psychiatrists’ organizations studied the records and charged Soviet doctors and the government with creating false diagnoses as a way to indefinitely detain possibly thousands of political opponents who showed no medically recognized symptoms of mental illness.

      After another prison sentence, In 1976, Bukovsky was deported from the USSR and exchanged by the Soviet government for Luis Corvalán, the imprisoned general secretary of the Communist Party of Chile.

      “Bitch, please” is a phrase used when someone is claiming ‘credit’ about something they don’t deserve and is countered by someone who has the superior claim. In this case, you were claiming embarrassment for electing Trudeau twice, I submit the superior claim for electing Obama twice. It has nothing to do with sex/gender and sometimes, in some circles, the n-word is used instead regardless of race.

      “Bitch, please” — occasionally *”N*gga Please”* — is an image macro often seen around the web. it is used when someone claims to be superior at something, but well deserves to be countered by someone else who is way superior.

      All I’m sayin’ is that we fucked up even worse and there you go getting all upset……………

      @ eaglesoars:

      Next will be the State of California is going to demand taking over PG&E. And guess what happens when that takes place? Rates will go through the roof if you don’t have solar and if there is a fire, too bad so sad – it’s the State – try and sue us for the damage.

      Oh, and I was hoping for a Nationals win but after their treatment of the President, no. Lose. Lose BIG.

      According to some comments on the Daily Mail by people who were at the game, the booing was a non-event, it seemed to come from one section and he DID get a standing ovation. Also noted that a lot of it seemed organized (“Vets for impeachment” sign), etc. What I heard on the only video I’ve seen was unclear 50-50

      Given the ticket prices and the teams involved, anybody at that game is way outside the ‘everyman’ demo anyway. Boos from those yahoos is a badge of honor.

      Having Solar panels does you zero good when they shut down the electrical grid if you do not also have backup batteries with that Solar. The vast majority of people with Solar panels do not have said backup batteries.

      Barr interview w/Fox

      “I do want to say that one of the reasons Mr. Durham is able to make the kind of progress he’s making is because Director Wray and his team at the FBI have just been outstanding in support and responsiveness given to Mr. Durham,” Barr said. “As you know, I’ve said previously that I felt there was a failure of leadership at the bureau in 2016 and part of 2017, but since Director Wray and his team have taken over there’s been a world of change. I think that he is restoring the steady professionalism that’s been a hallmark of the FBI. I really appreciate his leadership there.”

      God, Trump will be insufferable. He’ll claim this operation was a thousand times harder than the one that got Osama. His campaign will sell “Who’s your Baghdadi” t-shirts. Total misery.

      TOTAL

      After the speech – he gave full credit to the ones that went in, and our War Dogs. Unlike Obama, who the media practically had jumping out of the helicopter to get bin Laden.

      And NO, MSM – I wouldn’t have told the effing members of Congress either, especially a leaker like Shiffty and those members of the Goon Squad that are complete terrorist sympathizers.

      @ doriangrey:

      I had all my friends who put in solar (I did not) get all pissed off when they cut the power the first time and realized they didn’t have any power in the morning after the Sun came up. No, peeps, it all goes to the grid, until you buy that $5000 or more battery that stores power there first and THEN sends the excess to the grid. You’d have had enough for at least a couple hours at the first power outage and then the solar would have finally kicked in in the morning.


    105. 110 | October 28, 2019 1:36 pm

      Dorian — FINALLY got around to seeing that namesake movie of yours with Hurd Hatfield and George Sanders awhile ago. Really well done. Of course, then there’s the guy in “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.” Not bad.

      Lin Wood is reporting that the judge has reversed himself and the Nick Sandmann’s case against the Washington Post can now proceed – discovery is going to commence. It’ll pretty much be one-way on that score with WaPo having to show their thought process in reporting on him.

      I’m thinking before the end of the week, Mr. Wood will be receiving a call from the WaPo attorneys offering a sizable check to Mr. Sandmann.

      Nancy thinks she’s got the votes

      NEW: House Democrats change course, will take vote to formalize impeachment procedures on THURSDAY, per Dem aides.

      NEW from PELOSI: “We are taking this step to eliminate any doubt as to whether the Trump Administration may withhold documents, prevent witness testimony, disregard duly authorized subpoenas, or continue obstructing the House of Representatives.”

      The cheapskates didn’t realise that by using the grid as your ‘battery’ you were vulnerable to outage when the grid goes down?

      Seriously?

      These folks need to go back to school and revisit their physics books, a beginners guide to basic logic and actually read the accompanying 40 pages of legal-eze that accompanied the solar panels and the base agreement with the power company.

      Sheesh!

      🙂

      @ Aussie Infidel:

      Indeed. Solar companies WANT to sell you a battery – it’s expensive and worth it. But I think when people hear “batter” they think of it as a back up and that the power coming from solar goes directly into their houses and that they only need to use PG&E is when it’s night or overcast. Uh, no. PG&E gets your solar power, dude. And if the grid is down and you don’t have a batter, those pricey panels are nothing more than extra weight on your roof.

      Unfortunately, all I’ve seen are the tweets from Nick’s lawyer Todd McMurty advising of the reversal. Still looking for an actual news article that talks about his basis for reversal. Can’t find anything yet.

      @ eaglesoars:

      Hmm….I’m wondering if she’s learned that Schiffty’s process is failing on all levels and that he really DIDN’T have anything with that whistleblower or the underlying facts that started this whole process look very, very, VERY bad for her, Schiffty, No-Nads and everything else. She holds the vote, the vote LOSES (like it did earlier this year), she still looks like a hero but now they can stop the bleeding.

      Because Schiffty really DOESN’T have anything and this testimony in secret is looking worse and worse by the day.
