‘Lone Survivor’ director praised for NFL
commercial that featured the game’s greats

Fox News, by Edmund DeMarche

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 2/4/2019 4:51:52 AM

Mark Walhberg praised his former director, Peter Berg, for creating the widely praised NFL spot that aired during the Super Bowl that featured 44 of the game´s former and current stars. The 2-minute commercial starts out at a black-tie event at a swanky banquet hall. It looks like a wedding reception and even has a large white cake. Roger Goodell, the NFL commissioner is on stage, addressing the audience that is seated at round tables with crystal stemware and floral centerpieces. The camera cuts to Peyton Manning, who nods in agreement with Goodell who is talking about the NFL´s 100th season

I absolutely LOVED this commercial!! It was hilarious and I laughed all through it. I just wish they could have gotten Refrigerator Perry to tackle something, especially since he scored a TD in Superbowl XX.

You´d have to be over 40 to really appreciate and recognize everyone. Franco at the end was pretty good. I went to bed in the 3rd quarter. Brady didn´t look that great but apparently he got the job done.

I thought it was great also except for the teenage girl towards the end who ended up with the football and said come and get it or some such. Maybe someone can explain her significance or even who she is.

Agreed, #4. I have no idea who she is or why she was there except to appease the GirlPower crowd.

This was the best commercial of the night by far. Poor Hubs, though-he´s a Raiders fan and had to re-live the Immaculate Reception yet again.

Franco Harris and the ´immaculate reception´ was a blast from the past. Ironically, the best ads (to me) were the NFL promos, and not any of the real commercials. Liked the ad with Payton Manning and John Malkovich at the Roman Colosseum.

Beto is the poor man´s Obama —

Beto O’Rourke is in! After a reverential Vanity Fair profile and awkward couch announcement at his home, he is now seeking to become ... something. Speaking in vagaries and platitudes, Beto says he plans to make us all into the better people he hopes we can be. We’ve been through this with Barack Obama — and have no reason to fall for a worse imitation 12 years later. In many ways, Beto-mania is a poor man´s version of Obama´s ascension to the national stage in 2007. Obama had a similar unveiling before his presidential announcement in late 2006.

For a long time I thought the problem was all in my head. When I was growing up, I knew that a certain kind of noise was one I needed to avoid. Food blenders in the kitchen, hair dryers in the bathroom, a vacuum cleaner whooshing around—all produced an intense whining sound that, given the specific wiring connections between my ears and my brain, kept me from thinking about anything but the sound itself while it was going on. Over the years I lived by this code: I used high-performance earplugs if I needed to write or otherwise concentrate

The terrorist attack at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, that left more than 49 people dead and scores of others wounded has evoked a lot of emotion and debate in the United States about how government can effectively reduce the amount of gun violence in schools and places of worship. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., helped to spark the discussion when, in the immediate wake of the attack, she wrote to her 3.5 million Twitter followers, "What good are your thoughts & prayers when they don´t even keep the pews safe?" She clarified the tweet by writing, "´Thoughts and prayers´

On December 6, the New York Times headlined: “U.S. Murder Rate for 2018 Is on Track for a Big Drop.” The story was based on homicide statistics from 66 large cities. (The official FBI numbers for 2018 won’t come out until September 2019.) The murder rate in the United States in 2018 is on track for the largest one-year drop in five years. *** Murder rose 23 percent nationally between 2014 and 2016 before leveling off in 2017. The Times can’t think what might have caused the homicide rate to rise rather dramatically during the last years of the Obama administration.




The Bogus Lawsuit against Remington

Rule No. 1 of tort law: The bad guy is the one with the most money to pay you. On December 14, 2012, Adam Lanza murdered 26 people, 20 of them schoolchildren ages six and seven. Lanza killed himself, too. Can’t sue him. Lanza had a history of mental illness — a long one. He’d been treated under the New Hampshire “Birth to Three” program and later by the Yale Child Study Center. But it would be hard to make a case against those institutions, which enjoy a great deal more sympathy than gun manufacturers do.

Age of victim in prosecution of Jeffrey Epstein,

A federal investigation into alleged sexual misconduct by multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein had flagged scores of potential underage victims, including the 14-year-old girl who first alerted police. But when he pleaded guilty in state court in 2008, the only minor Epstein was convicted of soliciting was 16 years old at the time the offenses began, according to information obtained by The Washington Post. The younger girl who initially notified police has long believed that hers was the case referenced in the guilty plea, her attorney said. Some media accounts said as much.

In case you haven’t noticed, Rudy Giuliani has been absent from cable news recently sparking rumors that President Donald Trump‘s lawyer was banned from the airwaves after his numerous on-air flubs. At least three of Axios‘ sources confirmed to the outlet, that indeed, after Giuliani’s Jan. 20th hits, Trump and his lawyer Emmet Flood griped about Giuliani’s airtime. One source even suggested it was Trump himself who wanted Giuliani sidelined. Yet, when asked about his lack of television appearances in recent days, Giuliani told Axios’ Jonathan Swan that he hasn’t heard any complaints about his television appearances.

The return of Zion Williamson has worked wonders for the Duke Blue Devils. The phenomenal freshman led Duke to the ACC Tournament title on Saturday night. On Sunday, the NCAA selection committee rewarded the Blue Devils with the No. 1 overall seed in this year´s NCAA Men´s Basketball Tournament. Williamson missed five games after wrenching his knee when his Nike sneaker blew out in a regular-season game against archrival North Carolina last month. He appeared to be plenty healthy in the ACC tournament, averaging 27 points and 10 rebounds while making 33 of 43 shots in Duke´s three games

Every time I think Britain’s MPs have touched bottom, they sink lower. The House of Commons has just resolved that it will not let Britain leave the EU without explicit permission from Brussels, or, as Europhiles absurdly phrase it, that they will not let Britain “crash out” with “no deal.” With one vote, MPs have destroyed any prospect of an equitable outcome. Eurocrats now know that Britain has only two options: either to leave on humiliating terms, terms that would leave Brussels in charge of its trade policy in perpetuity, or to give up on Brexit entirely.

I’ve lived most of my adult life inside the blood-stained walls of people doing horrible things to one another. At the age of 26, while a state prosecutor outside of Detroit, I spent the better part of a year prosecuting a 17-year-old with a long criminal history who escaped from juvenile detention, broke into a house, and shot a hole through a young father’s head while he was sitting at his desk working from home. As a federal prosecutor, I ran the FBI investigation into a gang leader who decided it was cheaper to murder his drug supplier than pay

An Ohio woman is suing one of the state´s most powerful unions for its continued collection of dues payments over her objections. Connie Pennington has been forced to pay dues to the Communication Workers of America Local 4502 as part of her job with the city of Columbus, but attempted to sever ties after the Supreme Court declared mandatory dues payments unconstitutional in the 2018 Janus v.

Today’s Yellow Vest protesting in Paris produced violence on a scale not seen since the early days of the movement. AP reports: French yellow vest protesters set life-threatening fires, smashed up luxury stores in Paris and clashed with police Saturday in the 18th straight weekend of demonstrations against President Emmanuel Macron. Large plumes of smoke rose above the rioting on Paris’ landmark Champs-Elysees avenue, and a mother and her child were just barely saved from a building blaze. Cobblestones flew in the air and smoke from fires set by protesters mingled with clouds of tear gas sprayed by police,

Fox News host Jeanine Pirro was yanked off the air on Friday night a week after she ignited controversy, and earned a rare condemnation from her network, over comments about Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar. The network aired a repeat of the documentary show "Scandalous" instead of Pirro´s "Justice with Judge Jeanine," which airs Saturdays at 9 p.m. ET. Pirro has hosted the show since 2011. "We’re not commenting on internal scheduling matters," a Fox News spokesperson told ABC News. The network would not offer further comment and it was not clear when Pirro´s show would return to the air.

ABC’s The View co-host Meghan McCain said Saturday evening that no one will ever love President Donald Trump in the same way her late father Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) was loved. “No one will ever love you the way they loved my father…. I wish I had been given more Saturday’s with him. Maybe spend yours with your family instead of on twitter obsessing over mine?” McCain wrote on Twitter. The View co-host’s scathing remarks came in response to President Trump’s criticism of her late father’s involvement in giving the FBI a copy of the largely debunked Steele dossier.

Colorado could be part of voting history next general election day, joining 11 other states looking to ensure that their electoral college votes echo the will of the American majority to elect the next president. Gov. Jared Polis signed a law Friday that would allot the state´s electoral college votes to whichever candidate won the national popular vote. The Washington Post previously reported the law´s signing. The trend comes as Americans have shown greater support in recent years for a more democratic presidential election process, without the translational risks of the electoral college.

Former Vice President Joe Biden had a private meeting with former Georgia House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams on Thursday, prompting speculation about the implications of that conversation for each one´s potential presidential candidacy. A source close to Abrams confirmed the meeting and said that it occurred at Biden´s request, according to the Associated Press. The meeting is significant because Biden represents the moderate, establishment wing of the Democratic Party and is widely expected to be an instant frontrunner if he decides to seek the presidential nomination in 2020. Abrams, by contrast, has run as an unabashed progressive and, because

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez´s "unfavorable" rating has skyrocketed now that she has become more well-known, according to a new poll from left-leaning Gallup. (Video) The poll, released on Friday, found that the increase in Ocasio-Cortez´s "unfavorable" rating in recent months has more than doubled her increase in "favorable ratings." "Half of U.S. adults were unfamiliar with or had no opinion of her in September after her seismic primary win over the summer, but that figure has shrunk to 29% today," Gallup reported. "But the increased visibility has not improved her overall standing with Americans." In September, Ocasio-Cortez´s "favorable" vs "unfavorable"

When Indiana homeowner George Hollingsworth noticed some damage Tuesday to the door frame on his garage, he suspected a break-in, the Marion Police Department wrote in a statement. On Wednesday, Hollingsworth began cleaning out his cluttered garage to determine if anything had been stolen, police reported. That’s when he found the body of a suspected burglar crushed beneath a 900-pound antique floor safe that had apparently toppled onto the stranger, police wrote. “My mind couldn’t comprehend it,” Hollingsworth said, WXIN reported. “This can’t be real.

Ferguson, Mo. - Two young men were found dead inside torched cars. Three others died of apparent suicides. Another collapsed on a bus, his death ruled an overdose. Six deaths, all involving men with connections to protests in Ferguson, Missouri, drew attention on social media and speculation in the activist community that something sinister was at play. Police say there is no evidence the deaths have anything to do with the protests stemming from a white police officer´s fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown, and that only two were homicides with no known link to the protests.

Twelve Senate Republicans stopped Donald Trump from invoking a national emergency to pay for a wall on the southern border last Friday…three times as many senators than needed to pass it. That’s the good news. The bad news? Even more Republicans will be needed to override Trump’s veto. What’s worse is the fact that if more Republicans don’t join Democrats in overriding this veto they will provide Trump even more power when he has a history of not acting in the best interest of our country.

Florida’s political partisans don’t like each other. That might seem obvious, but compared to other states we take it to the extreme. Our partisans — liberal and conservative — are among the most politically prejudiced in the country, according to polling firm PredictWise. That’s not something to be proud of. The analysis, featured in a recent article in the Atlantic magazine, ranked each county in the nation for political tolerance. An accompanying map shaded the least prejudiced counties in white. Dark green indicated most prejudice. Florida was entirely dark green, every one of our 67 counties. No other state was so biased.
