A Bettor World Beckons
City Journal, by Steven Malanga

The 2018 National Football League season is the first since the Supreme Court ruled last May that states can no longer ban sports betting. Though placing legal bets on NFL games isn’t easily done yet, it likely will be soon. State-sanctioned betting is underway in four states, four more have okayed it and are deciding how to license and regulate operators, and dozens of others are contemplating legalization, which some legislators hope would boost tax collections. These states would all join Nevada, which enjoys a long-standing federal exemption that lets its casinos take bets on sports events. Even the NFL,

Comments:
"Legalize it or else the mob takes over" seems to be the rote justification for getting the government used to the idea of ubiquitous gambling. This LDotter knows at least one million dollar a year casino gambler who gets comped all over the world. I should hope so. What a sinful waste. (Like most playing pros, I used to gamble, sometimes for hundreds. Wagering higher amounts risked friendships, and was avoided, except between enemies.)

The only thing the NFL is good for, and it´s probably rigged somehow anyway, so not even that.

Surprise Collapse
PJ Media, by Richard Fernandez    Original Article
Posted By: Hazymac- 12/8/2018 8:59:53     Post Reply
One of the biggest mysteries in history is the late Bronze Age Collapse. There´s no good explanation for why an early globalized civilization should suddenly disappear at around 1177 BC. "Within a period of forty to fifty years at the end of the thirteenth and the beginning of the twelfth century almost every significant city in the eastern Mediterranean world was destroyed, many of them never to be occupied again." Modern archaeologists have advanced a number of theories to explain this catastrophe several of which will sound familiar to modern ears. Climate change -- not anthropogenic kind, since

Women´s March co-founder Linda Sarsour is "empowering" the radical Islam that oppresses women across the world, inspiring sex slavery, child marriage, and female genital mutilation, a best-selling author and women´s rights activist told PJ Media on Friday. "Linda Sarsour is promoting Sharia law and misleading Americans," Rabia Kazan, a best-selling author and president of the Middle Eastern Women´s Coalition, told PJ Media on Friday. "She never mentions child marriage, genital mutilation, or honor killings." "She´s empowering their side, not us," Kazan said. "She´s encouraging these barbaric people. She´s encouraging them and contributing to them, to women being sold and girl

Ammo Grrrll dubs them REPULSI-CANS. She writes: I really want to know where I can go to get a gig as a pretend Democrat attacking other Democrats on television? Would that be a dream job, or what? There was chipmunk-cheeked Ana Navarro, on election night 2016, who was terribly excited about the pending, in-the-bag defeat of Donald J. Trump, as “sweet sweet justice” when Hispanics would get to deal him the mortal blow. Not being one who ever watches televised Pravda-like news, silly me, I didn’t even know who the heck she was. Or, more accurately, who the “hack” she was.

USGS Finds Record Reserves Expected
to Yield 46 Billion Barrels of Oil

The U.S. Geological Survey said oil and natural gas reserves straddling the New Mexico-Texas line amount to the largest such continuous energy field ever found in the region. The find was assessed to harbor 46.3 billion barrels of oil, 281 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, and 20 billion barrels of natural gas liquids, according to USGS, which did not assess the financial cost-benefit analysis of tapping into the reserves. "Christmas came a few weeks early this year," Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke said in a statement. The previously undiscovered reserves are deemed to be technically recoverable using currently available

A long classified email chain from October 2016 reveals that a large group of Obama Justice Department officials -- including James Comey -- was aware that there was highly misleading information in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to spy on Trump campaign, John Solomon of The Hill reported Wednesday. According to Solomon´s sources, the documents "may provide the most damning evidence to date" of potential FISA abuses. The emails show that some in the intelligence community -- possibly the NSA -- had problems with the quality of the intelligence in the Steele dossier, which was used to obtain

The American Presidency Is in Xi´s Hands

Donald Trump may have done something brave that no recent president has come close to attempting by confronting China on trade via tariffs — or any other way for that matter. But in so doing, like it or not, he has placed his reelection in the hands of the general secretary of the Communist Party of China, Xi Jinping. If Xi doesn´t make a deal with Trump on trade, we are almost certainly headed for a recession (or worse) and Donald will be out the door. After that, the deluge.

If nothing else, Robert Mueller´s year-and-a-half-long "investigation" into the Trump campaign will serve as an exposition of what it looks like when a presidential campaign and presidency are on "the wrong side of history." In case you didn´t know, "wrong side of history" is liberal-speak for "unhelpful to the progressive, globalist agenda." To be on the wrong side of history is to be on the wrong side of the army of liberal sycophants who populate the federal government -- especially the intelligence agencies. Because this shadow government (aka deep state) hates transparency and loathes disruptive forces like Donald J. Trump, many

29. That’s how many crimes one single Syrian migrant had allegedly committed since entering Germany four years ago. He had already been wanted for drug trafficking and had been investigated for a rape last year. And then he struck again, this time in a case that has once again torn apart a sleepy college town. Freiburg is a German city of 226,000 people. Foreigners make up 36,800 or 16% of the population. Of the foreigners in Freiburg, whose name means fortified city of free people, 18,750 or 8.5% are men.

And on that front, there´s some sad but not unexpected news this morning: Everybody is wrong again. (Snip) "Most people say." This is what´s called the tyranny of the majority, and I for one will not stand for it. If that´s what most people say, then most people are wrong. Dead wrong!

Last week, a two-hour "Whiteness Forum" held by students at Cal State San Marcos added the children´s Christian program "Veggie Tales" to the list of forbidden "racist" media. I fondly recollect waltzing with potatoes up and down the produce aisle in my childhood years, and can report with certainty that evidence for this claim is just as hard to find as a Cebu. According to The College Fix, a female student at the "Whiteness Forum" argued that "Veggie Tales" is racist because the villains are vegetables of color.

The View’s co-host Joy Behar is still furious at Meghan McCain for ruining her swipe at President Trump. The panel was memorializing the passing of the late President George H.W. Bush, who passed away last weekend at the age of 94. Behar tried to use the death of the former president to attack Trump, specifically on the environment; Bush 41 signed the Clean Air Act into law during his administration. Behar was trying to take a swipe at Trump for allegedly undoing this law, but McCain ran a blitz, interrupting Behar and suggesting they focus solely on

WASHINGTON -- Former Sen. Alan Simpson (R-Wyo.) told Bloomberg that one urgent step to addressing national fiscal policy is to "go give some kind of voodoo injection to the AARP, because they don´t give a damn for people under 50." "It´s a great big group, about 39 million American bound together by airline discounts and RV discounts, from erectile dysfunction ads," said Simpson, 87. "There are still purposes to take care of people who were 50. That means they don´t care about their grandchildren, and they were suppose to talk about the debt and the deficit."

Prominent journalists gathered this week to discuss why President Trump sits in the White House and came to the following conclusion: “Gullible” voters and “unfair” coverage — toward Democrat Hillary Clinton — are to blame. The Recode Decode podcast this week featured NBC’s Chuck Todd, Andrea Mitchell, and Hallie Jackson talking about the state of American politics. They told host Kara Swisher that Mr. Trump’s campaign tricked the former secretary of state into responding to non-issues while stupid voters took care of the rest on Election Day. “I knew the gaslighting was out there,” Mr. Todd told the panel Dec. 5

Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson set straight any misinformation concerning his views on President Trump: “I don’t think he’s capable,” he said during an interview on Tuesday. Urs Gehriger, an editor at “Die Weltwoche,” Switzerland’s leading German-language opinion weekly, noted that Carlson’s new book, “Ship of Fools,” is silent on Trump but comments on his critics. And so, Gehriger jump-started the conversation by asking what Carlson thought of Trump’s first two years in office. Carlson said he cannot stand Trump’s self-aggrandizement and boasting. Then, when asked whether Trump has kept his promises, the usually quick-witted

An elementary school principal in Nebraska was placed on leave after telling teachers to avoid decorating their classrooms with Christmas-themed ornaments so as not to offend those who don’t celebrate the holiday. The principal at Manchester Elementary School, identified by Fox affiliate KPTM as Jennifer Sinclair, sent out a memo earlier this week with guidelines as to what is considered appropriate for classroom decorations and assignments. Teachers reportedly were told that generic winter-themed items, such as sledding and scarves, and the “Frozen” character Olaf, were acceptable.

Bill and Hillary Clinton have been forced to resort to selling half price tickets for their 13-city tour on Groupon in a desperate bid to put bums on seats. The former president and first lady launched their tour in a Canadian hockey arena last Tuesday to an underwhelming crowd and swaths of empty seats. Ticket prices were plummeting shortly before the event, with the cheapest seats selling on Stubhub for single-digits - $6.55 Canadian Dollars, or less than $5. Now the couple are taking drastic action to avoid another embarrassment

A fascinating bit of news flying well under the D.C. radar is the comments of Clinton Foundation CFO Andrew Kessel to members of an independent investigation firm that has been looking into Clinton Foundation business practices for some time. According to Kessel it’s as bad as some have long thought – the foundation is mired in conflicts of interests, misappropriation of funds, and a rogue Bill Clinton himself who has long used it as a personal piggy bank.Via Zero Hedge: The CFO of the Clinton Foundation, thinking he was “meeting an old professional acquaintance,” admitted to investigators

Three whistleblowers have come forward with hundreds of pages of evidence suggesting wrongdoing at the Clinton Foundation, a Republican congressman says. Mark Meadows, head of the House Oversight Subcommittee, said the documents suggest misappropriation of funds and quid-pro-quo promises made to donors during Hillary´s time as secretary of state. Meadows spoke to Fox News about the documents ahead of an investigative hearing on the Clinton Foundation which is due to take place next week. The hearing will review evidence collected by U.S. Attorney John Huber, who was tasked with investigating the Foundation by ex-Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

A YELLOWSTONE volcano eruption could trigger a volcanic winter, which would plunge the globe into freezing conditions and threaten to cut off food supplies, experts have warned. The Yellowstone volcano, located in the US State of Wyoming, has been ranked a “high risk” volcano by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and experts have warned an eruption could one day cause a volcanic winter, threatening to cause chaos across the globe. Dr Christopher Kilburn, a professor at University College London and expert in volcanic hazards, has explained exactly how a volcano can produce what is called a volcanic winter.

Yikes, and a simultaneous ‘Wow’.

Bush to gang up on the president the media live to hate. Blaming Trump for everything now includes media accusations that he really secretly wanted all the attention at Wednesday’s memorial. There paying his last respects, Trump likely never knew that the media would use the occasion to point out the differences between him and Bush ad nauseam—but they could read that he angrily “TORE” off his coat even though video clearly
