Duke picked as overall top
seed in March Madness

Fox News, by Samuel Chamberlain

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 3/18/2019 4:31:40 AM

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

To answer #1 - Don´t watch or pay attention, it works for me.

I attended/graduated from NC State during the David Thompson/National Championship era. I live at Ground Zero of the ACC in the middle of ´Tobacco Road´. I used to take off work on Friday of the ACC tournament to watch or listen to the games before the league expanded to include ´outsiders´. For whatever cumulative reasons I ´walked away´ a few years ago and now I don´t even pay attention.

Can anybody trust Fox with sports news? I´m beginning to wonder.

Yes, I agree, it´s a foolish waste of time for grown men to amuse themselves by watching a ball being dropped through a hoop by genetic exceptions. Go drop a worm in the water or hit a few golf balls if you have time to waste. At least it gets you out of the house. The fact that Barack Obama had that kind of time proves what a useless child he is.

When the school has players that are sitting on the bench that would make a top ten team, the more one is just bored. This went on for years at UNC, now it´s Duke. However, I don´t think Duke is that great a team. It certainly should make the final four, but I wouldn´t be surprised if they get knocked out in the sweet sixteen.

Watching Bernie at the Fox News Town

Strange as it may seem, watching Bernie Sanders on the Fox News town hall Monday night brought back memories of the Soviet Union for me. I went there for the first time in 1987, one year before Sanders went to the communist country. I was on a cultural exchange arranged for crime writers; Bernie was there to get married. Although I was more or less still on the left, I found what I saw horrifying. Bernie took off his shirt and sang ”This Land Is Your Land.”(video)In other words, although we were in the USSR at basically the same point,

9 Apocalyptic Lies Fed To Americans
About The Republican Tax Bill

Monday is the first Tax Day under the new Republican tax bill passed in December 2017, and the results are not what Democrats and their media apparatus predicted. Many Americans are discovering that they are not only alive and well, but indeed paying less taxes. As Ben Casselman and Jim Tankersley pointed out in The New York Times, there is a disparity between what Americans thought they would be paying the IRS this year, and what they actually paid. This myth, “appears to flow from a sustained — and misleading — effort




Behind the Obama administration’s shady
plan to spy on the Trump campaign
New York Post, by Andrew C. McCarthy    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/16/2019 4:43:41     Post Reply
In Senate testimony last week, Attorney General William Barr used the word “spying” to refer to the Obama administration, um, spying on the Trump campaign. Of course, fainting spells ensued, with the media-Democrat complex in meltdown. Former FBI Director Jim Comey tut-tutted that he was confused by Barr’s comments, since the FBI’s “surveillance” had been authorized by a court. (Needless to say, the former director neglected to mention that the court was not informed that the bureau’s “evidence” for the warrants was unverified hearsay paid for by the Clinton campaign.)

A group of parents in Brooklyn are seeking a temporary restraining order to prevent mandatory measles vaccinations from taking effect. The parents’ lawsuit against the New York City Department of Health called the emergency order "arbitrary and capricious" and the measures it necessitates "drastic." The order, issued by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio last week, demands that all persons, starting at the age of 6 months old, who live, work or attend school within the specified zip codes of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, be vaccinated.

PARIS – The Latest on the fire that swept through Paris´ Notre Dame cathedral (all times local): 8:45 a.m. A French cultural heritage expert says France no longer has trees big enough to replace ancient wooden beams that burned in the Notre Dame fire. Bertrand de Feydeau, vice president of preservation group Fondation du Patrimoine, told France Info radio that the wooden roof that went up in flames was built with beams more than 800 years ago from primal forests. Speaking Tuesday, he said the cathedral´s roof cannot be rebuilt exactly as it was

Almost every day, somebody somewhere recycles the idea that President Donald J. Trump doesn’t want to be president. He never did, they say. His heart is not in it. He wants to protect his business empire first and foremost. He doesn’t like having to answer to Congress. You’ll have heard these arguments in one form or another. They all make sense, until you consider that there is almost zero evidence to support them. The truth is that, unless he is pulling the greatest con perpetuated against American democracy (not impossible), Trump is running again –

WikiLeaks founder and chieftain Julian Assange was tossed out of the Ecuadorean embassy in London into the hands of British police last week. Assange is wanted on charges of sexual assault in Sweden and charges of conspiracy to commit computer intrusion in the U.S. He allegedly helped Army private Chelsea (née Bradley) Manning illegally obtain a password that led Manning to leak hundreds of thousands of classified documents to Assange for WikiLeaks to publish. Both Sweden and the U.S. have requested that Assange be extradited to face justice. It’s not clear which extradition request

Betty Ermey says she still feels the larger-than-life presence of her beloved father, R. Lee Ermey, a Marine-turned-Hollywood star. Ermey, who rose to fame on screen as the no-nonsense drill instructor in Stanley Kubrick’s 1987 film “Full Metal Jacket,” passed away on April 15, 2018, at age 74 from pneumonia. He is survived by his wife, two brothers, six children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, The New York Times reported. “I still feel him around,” Betty told Fox News. “I still hear his voice.

Hillary Clinton loyalists fed the FBI’s upper echelon an assortment of anti-Donald Trump criminal accusations during the 2016 campaign and his presidency, according to a string of interview transcripts released in recent weeks. James A. Baker, former FBI general counsel who participated on the receiving end, testified that the situation was “horrible” and “highly unusual.” At least 10 of Mrs. Clinton’s supporters directly or via middlemen told the bureau tales about Russia-Trump conspiracies. It appears to be an unprecedented effort by a presidential campaign and the party in power to count

Mariel Boatlift Revisited

It is fun to watch the left react to Trump’s suggestion that he might send migrants and asylum seekers to “sanctuary cities,” but their outrage may conceal the panic of the political fallout if Trump goes through with it, as he should. Anyone remember the Mariel Boatlift in 1980? That’s when Fidel Castro declared that anyone who wanted to emigrate to the United States was free to do so within a narrow window of time. Within days, 125,000 Cubans were en route to the U.S. Just where did that rickety fleet come from on such short notice?

“There are no second acts in American lives.” The line is F. Scott Fitzgerald’s and it is overused and demonstrably false as Tiger Woods proved on Sunday at the Masters. Fitzgerald probably would not appreciate the way his famous line has been turned into a cliché. He likely had intended it as one character’s brooding thoughts in a novel he never completed. Perhaps he had it mind for that character to experience a second act, disproving the gloomy aphorism. Maybe he was even imagining something like the resurrection of Tiger Woods in the Masters on Sunday.

Donald Trump is living in their heads, rent-free. It’s not the main reason we elected him, but it’s certainly a major side benefit — the president’s uncanny ability to troll these sanctimonious trust-funded PC frauds to the point of incoherence, if not insanity. Now he is threatening to flood the Democrats’ “sanctuary” cities with tens of thousands more indigent, indolent, diseased, criminal, nonEnglish-speaking illegal immigrants. As he pointed out Friday at the White House, the Beautiful People in places like California are always lecturing the rest of us about how we must welcome these parasites with “open arms.” So wouldn’t you assume

Cable news continued hailing Democrat Mayor Pete Buttigieg as the second coming Tuesday after he officially tossed his hat in the ring for the 2020 presidential race, Monday. Over at MSNBC, “center-right” columnist for the New York Times, David Brooks touted Buttigieg as the anti-Trump that America needed right now, in the wake of the “moral and spiritual crisis” that President Trump had created. MSNBC afternoon host Andrea Mitchell began by gushing with her guests over Buttigieg’s “stunning” and “moving” interview with Rachel Maddow about “coming out” as gay.

Too soon? While warm sparks were still spilling down from the ceilings at the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris, a Democratic lawmaker was using the blaze to describe President Trump. Rep. Steve Cohen, Tennessee Democrat, appeared Monday evening on MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews” show to tout his long crusade to impeach Mr. Trump and promptly reached for the fire. “What he has done to the Constitution and the rule of law is as bad as that fire did to Notre Dame. He’s torching the entire structure of government and the people’s respect for it.

During two separate occasions on Monday afternoon, Fox News anchors Shepard Smith and Neil Cavuto had to dump out of interviews after their guests wildly speculated and parroted conspiracy theories that the blaze that suddenly destroyed much of the historic Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris was an intentionally malicious act. While anchoring breaking-news coverage of the fire, Smith interviewed witness Philippe Karsenty, the deputy mayor of Neuilly-sur-Seine and a controversial right-wing media figure. Early in the call, Karsenty suggested that the Notre Dame blaze—which is currently being investigated as an accident—was a terrorist a

Democratic Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-CA) is running for president. He’s one of many who are hopping into the 2020 clown car. No, he probably won’t win the nomination. And yes, he would certainly lose against President Donald J. Trump. He’s also running on an issue that is only popular with the most insane of Democrats: gun confiscation. Swalwell has gone off the deep end with his absurd allegations that Donald Trump is an agent of the Kremlin. Yet, he’s been saying it for months. Even with the Mueller report torpedoing Democratic hopes of finding cause to impeach the president, the

After eight years of reckless expansion of the federal workforce under Barack Obama, Donald Trump vowed to downsize the wildly growing bureaucracy of Washington. In 2016, he promised to “cut so much your head will spin.” However, during the first two years of his presidency, there has been no significant effort to reduce the bloated federal payrolls. In fact, the federal government is the largest employer in the nation. Walmart, which has a presence in communities of all shapes and sizes, is the largest private employer in the nation with 1.5 million workers. Yet the number of Americans who rely

Thinking of the people of Paris and praying for every first responder trying to save this wonder,” she tweeted. The tweet sparked immediate criticism from those who noted that the historical Catholic cathedral was more than just “art and architecture.”
