´He´s the Winner of the Olympics.´
Adam Rippon Stole Everyone´s
Hearts During the Olympics

Time, by Mahita Gajanan

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 2/17/2018 6:38:08 AM

U.S. figure skater Adam Rippon did not medal in his final event at the 2018 Winter Olympics, but he remains an Olympic star nonetheless. Rippon emerged as a fan favorite during the Olympics, loved especially for the artistic beauty of his routine, his honesty and hilarious tweets. He also made headlines for a feud with Vice President Mike Pence over the politician’s stance on gay rights. The skater took home a bronze medal in the team event for figure skating. Rippon finished in the men’s figure skating long program Friday, and although he didn’t earn a medal in that event, it was

Dull gay agenda swish pablum if you listen to the tape. Barf alert.

Everyone is a very relative term, their numbers are way down over previous Olympics. Gee, I wonder if politicizing the games, be it Adam or fawning over a dictator´s sister had anything to do with that?

I´ve still got my heart, though. Everyone apparently doesn´t mean those who are gender-specific-as-born. People who agree with VP Pence are also not in the ´´Everyone´´ category.

Who cares about the meaningless jibber that Time produces? Only a liberal rag would call this loud mouth "the winner of the Olympics."

I stopped watching the Olympics when the backstory became more important than the athletic competition.

The only reason anyone gives two plug nickles about Rippon is he ripped on the VP. Other than that, he´s just another gay skater.

I only saw him at the beginning when he injected his sexual preference into to spotlight. And read about him at the end of his participation. Complaining about his sexual persuasion taking the spotlight from his performance. May his fifteen minutes be over.

Meanwhile, back at the Olympics, NBC has also become immersed in the SJW culture but they have totally failed to put on competent or successful programming. I can´t remember seeing such a disorganized, confusing series of programs. It is often unwatchable. They were so carried away with their anti-Trump PCisms, (they had Ripon on camera for what seemed like hours and Johnny Weir in his "look at me" persona had us switching the channel). The network may be filled with SJW´s but they certainly lack professionals or even adults (who would have the courage to tell the idiots that they are idiots).

Never watched his performance. But then I can’t watch figure skating or gymnastics competitions because of the disaster potential and frequency. They’re the kind of things you might watch between your fingers with your hands over your eyes or when crouching behind a sofa or a big chair.

Glad the drama queen didn´t win a medal. Maybe if he would have concentrated more on skating instead of insulting the VP things would have been different. We are Olympic free at our house. Then the networks are wondering why viewership of the games are down.

He did not have a "feud" with VP Pence because VP Pence had no feud with Rippon. Rippon made personal attacks against VP Pence to which VP Pence was too classy to reply to. That is not a feud; it is a publicity stunt.

The voice of Jim McKay comes to mind..."the thrill of victory....and the agony of defeat"

Talented as Rippon is, rather than make his points on the ice, he has tried to make this about himself and his gayness.

The media is lapping it up, and it comes to mind that the media coverage and interest is more about the gayness than actual ability.

Just to be there should be an amazing feat, but I wonder how many viewers turn it off shenever he is on there... could that be the reason for the low ratings, is the constant effort to make him a hero?

What is about his type that makes them crave attention, any attention and what is it about NBC that causes them to keep, over and over and over, spouting the tripe that he sticks up for his beliefs? The guy/gal is a sexually abnormal example of a prancing fool who has no clue as to the millions laughing at him. Johnny Weir is as light in the loafers as this whacko, and lets us know he knows he is entertaining the audience.

Personally, Nathan Chen´s six quad jumps took my breath away. Even more than the three "champs" that took the podium. His performance was for the record books.

Adam Rippon is a good skater, maybe he´ll be "great" someday. But if you put the partisan political opinions away, he still came in down the list.

Nathan Chen, hang in there. Next WO, you´ll be on that podium where you belonged this time.

Many of us that no longer watch the NFL were so turned off by idiots like missy Rippon that we aren´t watching this year.

But I guess Adam Rippon will be the queen of the ball among the elitist leftoids for being so "brave" to stand up to "evil" VP Pence...

Here is one LDotter who will admit to watching the Olympics and for the most part enjoying them.

Especially curling, which brings back memories of sprinting full speed down our hardwood hallway then putting on the brakes and sliding as far as possible in sock feet (gym socks). Olympic curling stones, about 40 pounds apiece, are comprised of a rare blue granite, "Blue Hone," that can be found on Ailsa Craig, an island off the Ayrshire coast of Scotland, although harvests are rare, the last occurring in 2013.

The sport of curling has similarities to shuffleboard, a big sport in many Florida retirement communities. Less than two miles north of downtown Clearwater´s Fort Harrison Hotel (Scientology´s "Flag" Base) on Alternate 19 is a shuffleboard complex, probably fifty courts--I have no idea--maybe the biggest of its kind in the world. It´s been there for over forty years and I never saw anyone there. Not one car in the parking lot, not one live body.

Olympic figure skating is among sporting´s most graceful pursuits. I have great respect for these and all athletes who give their lives for excellence. The lady figure skaters--except Tonya Harding and a few others--are thin and have or have had sensational legs that I can´t get enough of.

The men figure skaters are impressive, but did NBC go way out of their way to choose the most ostentatiously gay color commentator they could find? I mean, this estrogen soaked bloody poof must be the president of the Judy Garland pretend slave club or something. We´re being pelted with perversion right in our faces. Lord have mercy.

President Trump, to his credit, is holding firm on his zero-tolerance policy for illegal migrants at the border. That´s led the press to a considerable feeding frenzy on one of the consequences of it: the separation of migrants traveling with children so that the illegally arrived adults can wait their asylum claims out in detention, and the children can wait it out in non-prison conditions. That´s brought on lots of pictures of crying children and claimed stories of missing-children outrages, as well as a ton of phony news, dutifully reported over and over. The object is to weaken Trump in the

As he prepared to meet with anxious Republicans on Capitol Hill, President Trump on Tuesday defended his administration’s policy of separating migrant children from their parents at the border and demanded that Congress produce comprehensive immigration legislation to address what he called a “massive crisis.” Trump said he plans to make changes to whatever immigration measure emerges from the House, although his aides have said he would sign both bills under consideration or, perhaps, a narrower fix that immediately addresses the family separations.

If there was any doubt, watch his recent impromptu drop-in interview on the White House lawn with Steve Doocy from Fox and Friends last week. The Mueller investigation is coming up empty. Stormy Daniels has turned out to be more of a drizzle than a storm.

As fabulous as Sarah Sanders is, watching her daily press briefing is beyond frustrating; it is infuriating. The people she faces each day in that room are rude, antagonistic, angry, and generally vile. They are perpetually on the attack. They never listen to what she says. On Monday, Kirstjen Nielsen, also an amazing woman, faced them with similar results. These not-reporters apparently did not hear a word she said. That was evident from the questions they shouted at her the minute she offered to answer a few. These press jackals are ignorant of facts. They fall for the lamest narratives pushed

Sunday´s election of a hardcore conservative in Colombia has left the media elites and their pundits befuddled. Some are calling Ivan Duque, the 41-year-old new conservative president-elect a "populist" as if to suggest that both President Trump and the late unlamented Venezuelan strongman, Hugo Chávez, are all dreadful peas in the same pod. Others are speculating that Colombia elected another Emmanuel Macron, (Snip) The best story I saw comes from a local, on-the-ground source. Here´s Colombia Report´s headline: "Iconic Medellin slum votes Duque to avoid ´another Venezuela.´"

Michelle Obama joined her fellow former first lady Laura Bush Monday in criticizing the hard-line Trump administration immigration policy that has led to families being separated at the border. Bush, the wife of former President George W. Bush, penned a tweet over the weekend in which she echoed the widespread condemnation of the new directive from Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “I live in a border state,” Bush said. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Quoting that tweet, Obama wrote that “sometimes truth transcends

CUCUTA, Colombia - E xhausted but relieved, Yariani Flores lay next to her healthy newborn son, along with four other Venezuelan women who just gave birth in a hospital in Colombia’s border city of Cucuta. Thousands of Venezuelan women have done the same over the past few years, as the health system in their home country has crumbled. They crossed the border, driven by fear that they or their babies could die. Early in her pregnancy, Flores sought a pre-natal checkup at a municipal hospital in Venezuela’s frontier state of Tachira only to be told that there was little point. “The doctor said,

The Justice Department on Monday announced charges against a former CIA computer engineer for allegedly leaking top-secret information on U.S. government hacking tools to WikiLeaks. In a 13-count superseding indictment, the agency charged Joshua Adam Schulte with illegally gathering classified national defense information and transmitting it to “an organization.” WikiLeaks published the data in March of last year. “Schulte utterly betrayed this nation and downright violated his victims,” FBI official William Sweeney Jr. said in the release. “As an employee of the CIA, Schulte took an oath to protect this country, but he blatantly endangered it by the transmission of

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) on Monday said President Trump should stop his administration’s “heartless” zero-tolerance immigration policy, which has resulted in children being separated from their parents. Bush, who unsuccessfully ran for president in 2016, also said Congress should pass an immigration law that addresses issues raised by both Democrats and Republicans. “Children shouldn’t be used as a negotiating tool. @realDonaldTrump should end this heartless policy and Congress should get an immigration deal done that provides for asylum reform, border security and a path to citizenship for Dreamers,” Bush tweeted.”

On the day after the Republicans kicked our butts in the 2014 midterm elections—enlarging their margin in the House of Representatives and taking control of the Senate for the first time in eight years—I sat at my desk in the West Wing waiting for the bell to toll. At the time, I was the White House senior adviser for communications and strategy, and had been advising Barack Obama on media strategy and message since right before he started running for president back in 2007.

RICHMOND, Va. -- A Virginia city is rebranding its only school named after a Confederate general to honor the United States´ first black president. The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports the Richmond School Board voted 6-1 Monday to rename J.E.B. Stuart Elementary School to Barack Obama Elementary School.

Gibson wanted the vote to be delayed and said there was a lack of local names included in the administrations rebranding recommendations. The Richmond City School Board revealed the top three possible names Monday night. Northside, Barack Obama and Wishtree took the

KILAUEA volcano in Hawaii is continuing to erupt, with the volcano and surrounding areas experiencing 453 earthquakes alone within the last 24 hours, according to the US Geological Survey (USGS). Within the surrounding Leilani area, 5,914 acres acres of land have now been impacted, while 553 houses have been destroyed. The volcano has produced a large laze plume after an ash eruption on Sunday morning at the Kilauea summit. USGS warned lava is shooting between 60ft and 165ft into the sky from Fissure 8 as lava continues to pour into the ocean at Kapoho Bay. USGS said: “The ocean entry

It lived an uneventful life in Earth´s oceans 500 million years ago, but now this newly discovered creature has an unusual honor: It´s been given the scientific name Obamus coronatus, a name that honors President Barack Obama´s passion for science. (Coronatus means "crowned.") The tiny, disc-shaped animal was about a 1/2 inch long, with raised spiral grooves on its surface. It spent its entire life embedded on the ocean floor, likely never moving, according to scientists from the University of California – Riverside. A second small animal, an egg-shaped critter that may have looked like a raisin, was also discovered.

Hillary Clinton weighed in Monday morning on the ongoing controversy regarding the Trump administration’s "no-tolerance” border policy, suggesting that Jesus would not condone the actions of the American border authorities. At an awards lunch for the Women’s Forum of New York, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee called out “those who selectively use the Bible” to give grounds for the separations, which were reported by the Department of Justice on Friday. “I went to a lot of years of Sunday school — even taught it from time to time. I’ve studied both the Old and New Testament, and what is being

Republican Senate candidate Mitt Romney called on the Trump administration Monday to stop separating immigrant families at the southern border, calling the controversy a “humanitarian crisis” that requires Congress to devise a permanent solution. Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, declined to blame President Trump or the Department of Homeland Security specifically in remarks to a group of voters at a park here. He called images of children separated from their parents “pretty disturbing” and “heartbreaking.” “I think immediately we should go back to the setting where we’re not ripping children away from their parents, and then we expect Congress to take

LANSING — The unprecedented outpouring of activism from students after the shooting at Marjorie Douglas Stoneman High School in Parkland, Fla., in February is the genesis for a bill introduced in the Legislature last week that would change the voting age in Michigan to 16. "We allow 16-year-olds to go off and get jobs and pay taxes, but we fail to allow them to exercise their voice come election time," said Sen. David Knezek, D-Dearborn Heights. "Young people are setting aside their differences and identifying issues they think need to change. And they can do everything to get that change

Illegal Immigration: The latest outrage by the Trump administration is its policy of "ripping" children away from parents who´ve crossed the border illegally. As with so many other things involving Trump, there´s plenty of emotion but precious little in the way of facts. The furor reached critical mass after the Department of Homeland Security said on Friday that 1,995 children had been separated from their illegal border crossing parents from mid-April through May. That number included, DHS said, cases where the adults were arrested for illegal entry, immigration violations, or possible criminal conduct. The practice has generated a rising storm of protests,

Roseanne Barr has become untouchable due to the "Valerie Jarrett/Ambien/Planet of the Apes" controversy, irrevocably contaminated by racism. This presents a problem for ABC, which canceled her revived show but wants the show to return in some form because it had high ratings. The apparent solution is to create a new show focused on the daughter character "Darlene," which would exclude Roseanne. Unfortunately, Roseanne Barr owns a chunk of the show, and ABC doesn´t want to be seen letting Barr profit from it, so ABC is in talks to buy the show from Barr so she would not technically profit

The Justice Department’s tepid OIG report, with its risible assertion that there was no political bias in the FBI’s Clinton email probe, suggests that it was written by people afraid to tell the unvarnished truth about the conduct of the federal government’s police apparatus, an agency that openly defies congressional oversight and has participated in a vendetta against a sitting president. The FBI’s leadership clearly hopes that the Democrats will win majorities in Congress and put a halt to the investigations into its multifarious abuses of power. The OIG is loath to face the ruthless reprisals that would inevitably follow

Michelle Obama traded workout clothes for a chic suit as she went out to lunch in Los Angeles on Tuesday. The former first lady looked perfectly chic for her business lunch as she dined at the Gjelina restaurant in Venice. Michelle swapped out her usual jewel tones with a softer palate of pastels for the meeting. She opted for light green wide-leg trousers and a suit jacket done in matching green and black stripes, topping the look off with a simple white shirt and sandals. The former first lady also shielded her face with an oversized pair of pastel pink sunglasses

FBI Director Wray has said nothing to reassure Americans that he understands the serious corruption highlighted in the IG report. The FBI´s cover-ups and stonewalling on Wray´s watch add to his credibility problems. Both in is his press conference after the IG report was released, and in his testimony Monday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Director Wray demonstrated he was more concerned about protecting the reputation of the institution of the FBI than about the astonishing corruption of top FBI officials detailed in the IG report. During today’s hearing we heard about FBI agents who aren’t corrupt and how the Clinton email

Melania Trump´s approval rating is down six points after she spent a month out of the public eye following her kidney procedure, a new poll revealed. A new CNN poll shows 51 percent of Americans approve of the first lady, down from 57 percent in a poll conducted last month. Her unfavorable rating is at 29 percent, up from 27 percent last month. The survey was conducted from June 14-17, one month after Melania Trump had her kidney procedure at Walter Reed Military Medical Center, which took place on May 14 and kept her out of sight for 25 days.
