    On Wednesday, Time magazine announced its 2017 winner, as you know:

    “The Silence Breakers,” a reference to the women (and a few men) who spoke out about sexual harassment, precipitating a remarkable moment of public accountability for people — almost all men — in positions of power in the country.

    Outstanding choice by Time.

    A new survey by insurance firm Aviva found that 72 percent of 16 to 24-year-olds believe the term “snowflake” is unfairly applied to millennials. 74 percent of respondents took it a step farther, arguing that they believe the use of the label could have a negative effect on young people’s mental health.  I. and my best FF both LOLed when we heard this on the news.

    Famed commentator Brent Musburger had a tweet for the ages late Tuesday night regarding the recent criticism of the hits in football.
    The violence in football has been under a spotlight since the Monday night game between Cincinnati and Pittsburgh. There were plenty of shots that were probably over the top, but Musburger isn’t having any of the complaining.
    He tweeted, “Yo, Snowflakes. Quit preaching. The Violent World of Sam Huff sold NFL football to the masses. The Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders gave us a little sex with our violence. Deal with it!”

    Darwinially speaking, ‘Snowflakes’ are a dead end.   The real world is not politically correct. We  are still in the primordial swamp.

    Too tired to function today but saw this on the news: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/06/us/donald-trump-jr-intel-committee.html

    That family is one worse than the other.

    Gloria Allred Accuser **ADMITS** She Tampered With Roy Moore’s Yearbook ‘Signature’
    Allred dragged out discredited Moore accuser Beverly Nelson to Good Morning America to hit Judge Roy Moore one last time before Tuesday’s vote.

    Nelson admitted on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Friday that she tampered with and added “notes” to what she claims is Moore’s signature inside her yearbook.

    The story is solid. The statements were made by Beverly Nelson this morning. The yearbook signature has been discredited as reported by ABC’s GMA this morning.
    But after we (Gateway Pundit) posted the story this morning Facebook shut down our story.

    The far left website Politifact said our story was not accurate and Facebook the shut it down. No one will be able to see our story on Facebook.
    Breitbart wrote a similar post and it was also blocked by Facebook.

    So Facebook shut down the story on Judge Roy Moore’s accuser.
    Facebook is picking sides.  Facebook is ‘progressive’, and that is sickening.

    At his speech in Pensacola, Florida Friday, President Donald Trump celebrated his decision to take America out of negotiations for the so-called “Global Compact on Migration.”

    The plan Trump referenced was the United Nations’ (U.N.) “Global Compact on Migration,” to which the Obama administration pledged the United States participation last year. Talks began this week in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, on the massive United Nations (U.N.) plan to create “safe, regular and orderly migration,” from the third whole to wealthy countries in Europe and North America. On the eve of those talks, however, Trump reversed Obama’s decision and pulled U.S. negotiators.
    “I told them, not only do we not want ‘no borders,’ we want the strongest borders you’ve ever seen,” Trump boasted. “America is a sovereign country. We set our immigration rules.

    Perhaps most disturbingly to a country with as robust a tradition of free speech as the United States, the New York Declaration casts resistance to mass migration as racism, xenophobia, and illegal under international law.. We don’t listen to foreign bureaucrats.”

    Trump offered an unapologetic populist-nationalist vision of national sovereignty and local governance. “America is more than a place on a map, it’s a nation, it’s a family,” he told the crowd. “Our agenda is pro-family, pro-police, pro-workers and 100% pro-American.”

    I realize I could post links, but what brainwashed progressive would be willing to open a link they might disagree with?

    Roy Moore will become a senator on Tuesday.  Alabama is not a coastal libtard  state, it is a flyover state, and is poised to ensure the path to make America great.

    It will be amusing to watch/read/see the SJW response…will they enact violence, as they are wont to, or will they just wail pointlessly into the sky?   However the MSM response will be even funnier.   Maybe Wolf Blitzer will almost faint again, like when Trump was elected…ahhh the wailing and gnashing of teeth is a joy to behold.  It’ll be microseconds before the Russians are blamed.

    A win by Jones is unthinkable and would mean a victory by one of greatest scumbags in history, George Soros…he is worse than Obama, Bush, Hillary, Juncker, Macron and so many others.

    Money couldn’t buy the presidential election and we will see if it can buy this one.  I hope not.

    The study was born out of interest in the term “snowflake generation” which was originally used to describe young people who thought they were unique or special. The word’s meaning eventually evolved to mean “overly-sensitive.” It is often used to describe college students who claim that they are offended by controversial or even mundane ideas.

    Safe places are a myth:

    “You can’t ever find a place that’s nice and peaceful, because there isn’t any. You may think there is, but once you get there, when you’re not looking, somebody’ll sneak up and write “Fuck you” right under your nose.”

    I’ve had enough of Roy Moore. http://www.cnn.com/2017/12/10/politics/kfile-roy-moore-aroostook-watchmen/index.html

    The article is about Roy Moore telling a conspiracy theory podcast that the American government would run better if we got rid of all Constitutional amendments after the 10th meaning no abolishment of slavery, no vote for minorities, no vote for women and no direct voting for members of the Senate.

    I have no idea if this poll is correct or not but Fox News now has Doug Jones 10 points ahead of Roy Moore. Maybe it is right but it also could just illustrate the fact that many people don’t want to admit to voting for a cradle robbing racist when asked by a reporter.

    If it is correct I think his comments about America’s best times being during the slavery days probably hurt him most. Conservative Alabamians seems to not believe the molestation accusations but enough people may not want to seem completely backward on race issues. It would be too embarrassing.

    Has anyone read that Times piece on White People’s President? I have been on a no clicks on stuff about him for quite sometime, but I have accepted that we are in the upside down. It confirms that he’s an insecure man that lives for the attention. It’s honestly a good read.

    So what’s your take on the upcoming Academy Awards? Anyone you’re excited to see rock that podium?

    Wonderfully facetious, Foolio. My choice right now is Hoyte Van Hoytema, cinematography for Dunkirk. Absolutely breathtaking.
    Speaking of the Oscars, and Politics
    How many people do you think will be thanking Harvey Weinstein?
    Will Democratic fundraiser Weinstein even be mentioned?
    Will Meryl Streep go off on an anti-Weinstein rant?
