Tonya Harding is no hero
New York Post, by Maureen Callahan

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/12/2018 2:17:29 PM

It’s hard to recall a second act in American life like Tonya Harding’s. She doesn’t deserve it. As recently as 2014 — the 20th anniversary of her Olympic rival Nancy Kerrigan’s kneecapping, carried out by Harding’s ex-husband and associates — the disgraced skater told TV Guide, “Whatever. It’s like, I’m done. Nobody wants to hear this crap anymore.” Fast-forward nearly four years, and this scandal has been retold — marketed, untruthfully, as a “true story” — in the Oscar-gunning film “I, Tonya.” Last Sunday, Harding was seated prominently at the Golden Globes, thanked by winner Allison Janney — who portrayed Harding’s mother LaVona

Nancy Kerrigan has no comment. Did you expect one?

Harding later admitted she was aware of the plot to cripple Kerrigan and had even instigated it. yet they honor her as a hero victim. Of course, by comparison to them, Harding is a Saint. These GD Democrats are absolutely despicable people.

This is a little complicated. Yes, and most importantly, Tonya Harding was guilty, period. She was also abused, from a dirt poor family, her mother totally used her, her husband was just as awful, and awful in the same way. But somehow, Tonya Harding became one of the greatest female figure skaters America has ever produced. Or at least that´s what Dick Button (remember him?) said during the months long investigation following the attack on Nancy Kerrigan. A neighbor who was a competitive figure skater mentioned and agreed with Button´s opinion, something about edges and the Tripe Axle. And somehow, at least it´s a story worth telling, not glamorizing, but telling.

I have new respect for Johnny Weir: “I am so over the glamorization of a villain simply because she was born on the ‘wrong side of the tracks.’ While her upbringing may have been tragic, athletes come from all walks of life and succeed based on merit, not assault. I won’t applaud her and I stand for Nancy.”

The other victim here is Michelle Kwan. She was the alternate who would have replaced Harding if the Multnomah County DA would have had the guts to do his job and not let her lawyer bluff him. Because after the Olympics were over, he sure did his job surprisingly fast. So you knew the evidence was there. He was just spineless.

She was the biggest embarrassment I have ever witnessed at the Olympics. EVER Saw a photo of her with the article, and she looks so hard. Not a drop of class or graciousness in her soul.

If anyone wonders how psychopathic thinking works read this article in which Harding wonders why, just because she abetted in the attempted kneecapping of her skating rival, everybody makes HER out to be the bad guy.

#7 - All the athletic abilities and skill in the world means nothing if it is not backed up by character. No matter how poor you are that´s something that doesn´t cost a damn dime! Plenty of people have grown up dirt poor with character and morals. That´s not an excuse.

I was invited by friends to attend the performance one day after the attack, in Detroit. So I got to see Miss Tonya in person. She was awful. Took her at least 10 minutes to start her routine - the lights weren´t right, the laces on her skates weren[t right, I don´t remember how many false starts she made, but she was not impressive. I think she also fell at least once. It was very weird because we didn´t yet know her role in the attack.

At the same time, one of the friends who had invited me was from a fairly prominent Boston family and she had no love at all for Nancy Kerrigan, who had earned a reputation as a not so nice prima donna.

Still, I love watching figure skating competitions and performances. And wish I could go back to childhood and take skating lessons and learn to fly across the ice as the true athletes do.

I barely recall the incident during the scandals, but I do recall something of it as it was played out in the news, sport news and endless TV dramas.

The one thing I cannot reconcile is that figure skating is an extremely expensive athletic sport from the skates, costuming, cosmetics, hair, rink time, traveling, relocating, coaching, choreography and music, to name a few. How on earth can two supposedly "blue collar" families afford childhood skaters from a very young age to Olympic level? And do not state sponsorship as figure skating is as about lucrative in the sponsorship world as bob sledding, other than a Wheaties cereal box cover.

The poster above who says it´s complicated is right. It´s easy to say character doesn´t cost anything, but abuse can have devastating effects on a person, robbing them of even the chance to develop that character. it doesn´t change the facts, but some sort of thinking has to go into how you formulate your opinion of a person who has been abused, and then did bad things.

She will never be "normal." That is tragic. Also, everybody deserves a shot at redemption and forgiveness. She may not have earned it yet, but everybody deserves the chance.

Nancy Pelosi’s Last Stand
Daily Beast, by Eleanor Clift    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 4/26/2018 5:05:25 AM     Post Reply
Nancy Pelosi has never lost the vote in a leadership fight, or on the floor of the House, and she intends to reclaim the speaker’s gavel should the Democrats win back the House. Had Hillary Clinton won the 2016 election, Pelosi planned to give up her San Francisco seat and move on, confident the Republic was in safe hands. Instead, she stayed to fight the good fight, and her future will be determined by what happens in November. If the Democrats fail to regain the House majority after a year of anticipation, those dashed hopes would surely end Pelosi’s storied career. But

Let Alfie Evans Go to Rome

Alfie Evans, 23 months old, is hospitalized with a rare neurodegenerative disorder. Against his parents’ wishes, his doctors at Alder Hey Hospital in Liverpool removed him from life support on Monday evening, maintaining that further treatment would be futile. Bambino Gesù Pediatric Hospital in Rome has offered to treat him and arranged for his medical transport, which is on standby. The Italian government has granted him citizenship, clearing legal and administrative hurdles in advance. Doctors in Liverpool forbid the child to be removed from their watch, however, and British courts have backed them up, holding out the possibility that at some

NBC took a $69M chance on Megyn
Kelly and it looks like a failure
New York Daily News, by Kate Feldman    Original Article

NBC poured millions of dollars into “Megyn Kelly Today” and, in return, they’ve been rewarded with a massive drop in viewership. The Peacock network poached Kelly from Fox last year, enticing her from the conservative flagship network with a three-year, $69 million contract, according to the Wall Street Journal. But Kelly’s introduction to NBC, premiering at the 9 a.m. hour in September, was met with almost immediate controversy — a feud with Jane Fonda that the morning show host dragged out for months — and she never drew the viewership that the network was looking for. Her Sunday night newsmagazine show was

   

 



 
The curious DACA order from
a DC District Court judge
Hot Air, by Jazz Shaw    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 4/25/2018 4:53:32 PM     Post Reply
Back in February, the Supreme Court bailed out on the DACA question, declining to hear an appeal to a ruling from a San Francisco judge who thought the President couldn’t end the program. Sadly, that decision has left the door open to additional mischief from the courts, and now one of the strangest rulings yet has been handed down. A federal judge in the District of Columbia has concluded that not only can’t the President fully terminate the program but that the White House has only three months to come up with a better justification for its actions or he

Authorities have arrested the man accused of shooting three people, including two police officers, in North Dallas on Tuesday. Armando Juarez, 29, earlier identified as a person of interest, and an unidentified female were apprehended after a police pursuit that ended near uptown, authorities said. "We got our man," Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings said at a press briefing. Rawlings did not take questions, but he did ask for prayers for those who were shot. All three victims were out of surgery. Emergency dispatchers received a call shortly after 4:12 p.m. to go to a Home Depot, Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall said in a

Police released a video Tuesday showing a former financial adviser to Hillary Clinton getting involved in a heated, profanity-laced confrontation with several officers. "You may shut the f--- up!" the woman, Caren Z. Turner, 60, shrieks at an officer at one point. Most recently, Turner has been a commissioner with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and was chairwoman of its ethics committee, Politico reported. She was forced to resign last week because of the interaction with police during Easter weekend. “The Port Authority has zero tolerance for ethics violations,” PA spokesman Ben Branham told the website.

Believe it or not, there are still things to be said about Chappaquiddick. One of them is that the real thing that protected Ted Kennedy from the wrath of the crowd after his failure of nerve in that night of dark water was much less his family’s money and power than the strength of the victim mystique. This began with the death of Joseph Kennedy Jr., in 1944 in a suicide mission, continued with the death of their sister Kathleen Kennedy, and crested with the assassination of Jack Kennedy, which traumatized the whole nation. The unbelievable rerun with the murder of

US Winter Olympians who competed in PyeongChang are heading to the White House this week, but some of the most notable names are skipping the prestigious event. The 2018 Winter Olympics were, at times, used by athletes to vocalize their dissatisfaction with the Trump administration. Alpine skier Lindsey Vonn, figure skater Adam Rippon and freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy have all spoke out against the administration. They are among a large swath of about 60 Olympians who will not attend the White House reception this year. Chloe Kim, Mirai Nagasu, Mikaela Shiffrin, and Shaun White are also not visiting the White House

Chelsea Clinton took inspiration from the Duchess of Cambridge for how to manage the birth of her first child, a new book claims. She and her aides ´studied´ how the British royal family had handled the birth of Prince George in 2013 in order to prepare for her own first baby, who was born a year later. Bill and Hillary Clinton´s only daughter Chelsea, as well as her staff, noted how press was handled and how the Duchess of Cambridge handled herself, and used it as a template for themselves, the book claims.

On the domestic and foreign fronts, the Trump administration has prompted economic growth and restored U.S. deterrence. Polls show increased consumer confidence, and in some, Trump himself has gained ground. Yet good news is bad news to the Resistance and its strange continued efforts to stop an elected president in a way it failed to do in the 2016 election. Indeed, the aim of the so-called Resistance to Donald J. Trump is ending Trump’s presidency by any means necessary before the 2020 election. Or, barring that, it seeks to so delegitimize him that he becomes presidentially impotent. It has been only

Former Democratic Senate Leader Harry Reid, who was once “hopeful” about President Trump, is not warming up to the commander in chief. Reid still has hurt feelings about Trump mocking the injuries he sustained when an exercise band he was using at home snapped and hit him in the face. Reid fell to the floor, breaking his ribs and bones in his face. He now is blind in one eye. Trump mocked Reid in September 2016 after the Democratic leader commented on Trump’s weight. “[To show] what kind of a person he is, when I injured myself, I couldn’t sleep

YORK, Pa. -- One of five black women golfers who were told to leave a Pennsylvania club said Tuesday it felt like they were playing "with targets on our backs." Representatives of the Grandview Golf Club in York told the group at the second hole they were playing too slowly Saturday, said Sandra Harrison. After the ninth hole, an hour-and-a-half later, the group of white men told them they took too long a break and needed to leave. Harrison said she and two other women left because they were so rattled by the treatment. "It was like we were playing

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, warned President Trump firing special counsel Robert Mueller could lead to impeachment, becoming one of the first congressional Republicans to mention impeachment directly. “Firing Mr. Mueller would be a grave error. It would trigger a crisis, possibly even impeachment,” Hatch said in a Wall Street Journal opinion piece published Tuesday night. “It would threaten many of the administration’s accomplishments and make continued progress virtually impossible.” In his op-ed, Hatch endorsed the proposed legislation aimed at protect Mueller from being fired by Trump, or, for that matter, any president from firing a counsel appointed to investigating potential presidential misconduct.
