  1. The playoffs are under way. The wildcards are vying for a chance to play in the Superbowl. Good games. I was able to watch Dallas beat Seattle and the Chicago Bears lose to the Eagles. The Bears could have won with their final field goal attempt but their kicker missed, again! If they don't immediately sack this loser and get a proper kicker, the Bears may as well hand in their jockstraps and sell the team!!!

    The Road to Superbowl 2019

    After the missed penalty call resulting (?) in the LA beating New Orleans.... Commissioner has authority to take action over Rams-Saints outcome, in theory So what can the NFL do about the outcome of the Rams-Saints game? Probably nothing. Bad calls happen. Sometimes, bad calls have bigger consequences than others. Still, there’s language in the rulebook that could, in the right circumstances, allow the Commissioner to take extreme action in the face of a grossly unfair result. Consider Rule 17, Section 2, Article 1: “The Commissioner has the sole authority to investigate and take appropriate disciplinary and/or corrective measures if any club action, non-participant interference, or calamity occurs in an NFL game which the Commissioner deems so extraordinarily unfair or outside the accepted tactics encountered in professional football that such action has a major effect on the result of the game.” Even though Rams defensive back Nickell Robey-Coleman admits that he opted to wipe out Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis because Robey-Coleman believed he’d been beaten for a touchdown, it’s hard to imagine this being the kind of “extraordinarily unfair” act that would have a major effect on the outcome of the game. Then again, the rule is there for a reason; if ever it would be invoked, wouldn’t now be the time to do it?... https://www.yahoo.com/sports/commissioner-authority-action-over-rams-045113325.html

    EXPOSED Native Activist Who Harassed Catholic Teens Identified as an Actor and Well Known Radical Nathan Phillips, the Native American radical activist who confronted the MAGA hat-wearing Catholic teens at the March For Life, starred in a 2012 Skrillex video called “Make It Bun Dem,” in which Phillips does some spiritual warfare connected to a violent attack on a police officer. Phillips was identified as the star of the video in his speaker bio for Tribal Hemp & Cannabis Education and discussed the role in a 2017 interview. Nathan Phillips, the Native American man at the center of the controversy involving Covington Catholic High School students who were unfairly smeared by the media, is raising money with the help of a major big-money left-wing operation and has a history of appearing in the press claiming to be a victim of anti-Native racism. The Native Youth Alliance appears to be a standalone entity. However, the larger well-funded Native Youth Leadership Alliance — which told us that it is not associated with Phillips — is currently promoting Phillips’ fundraising campaign stemming from the incident with the Catholic teens. The Native Youth Leadership Alliance (NYLA) is a non-profit organization that is funded by the same far-left power players who are often involved in bankrolling leftist causes. The organization’s funding partners include the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, and the Social Justice Fund Northwest. https://mfamediagroup.com/exposed-native-activist-who-harassed-catholic-teens-identified-as-an-actor-and-well-known-radical/

    Media Hoax: MSM Falsely Claims Catholic Students Harassed Native American Video evidence shows activist confronting Trump-supporting students The mainstream media has been caught demonizing Trump-supporting Catholic students by falsely claiming they were harassing a Native American activist when video evidence shows the opposite. The incident began Friday when video surfaced showing students from Covington Catholic school standing in front of the activist while he beat a drum outside the Lincoln Memorial.

    ...leaking Meuller is losing... BuzzFeed Reporter Admits He Hasn’t Seen Any Evidence to Validate Trump Tower Story “I’ve not seen it personally,” Cormier tells CNN The BuzzFeed reporter who wrote the story about President Trump allegedly ordering Michael Cohen to lie about plans to build a Trump Tower in Moscow admitted on CNN today that he hasn’t seen any evidence to corroborate it. Late last night, BuzzFeed released a story written by Anthony Cormier claiming that Trump had received 10 personal updates from Cohen about the progress of the tower and that Trump had “personally instructed him to lie” about the date negotiations ended “in order to obscure Trump’s involvement”. The story cites two unnamed law enforcement officials who are privy to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian collusion. However, when asked by New Day host Alisyn Camerota if he had personally seen any “corroborating evidence” that backs up his story, BuzzFeed’s Cormier responded, “No, I’ve not seen it personally.” He went on to claim that the two unnamed law enforcement officials referred to in his report were aware of the evidence. The farce again underscores how the media, which Trump has labeled the opposition party, routinely relies on unnamed sources to make monstrous allegations with no tangible evidence to back them up. https://www.infowars.com/buzzfeed-reporter-admits-he-hasnt-seen-any-evidence-to-validate-trump-tower-story/

    Will be here early next month....looks good! Sam Elliott is The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot in this surprisingly heavy trailer With a title like The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot, you might be expecting this movie to be a cartoonish romp through a silly, sci-fi-tinged universe where one man—in this case Sam Elliott—happens to be some kind of superhero who manages to murder a bunch of deserving monsters. What you probably aren’t expecting is a serious exploration of the toll that one very important killing can take on an old soldier, and what happens when that old soldier is asked to save the world by killing once again. What does it mean to be the man who killed Hitler and then the Bigfoot? Well, it doesn’t mean having a whole lot of trashy fun, if this trailer is anything to go by. The A.V. Club’s own Katie Rife said The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot is a “mostly successful” hybrid of a “pulpy adventure tale” and a “meditative reflection on loneliness and aging” when she saw it at Fantasia Film Festival last year, and it’ll be available in theaters and on-demand on February 8.

    This is great....exposing this fraud of a politician 5555 President Trump Cancels Pelosi Trip Overseas — Hour Before Departure ‘If you would like to make your journey by flying commercial, that would certainly be your prerogative’ Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed,” the letter addressed to Pelosi from the president’s desk reads. “We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over. In light of the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay, I am sure you would agree that postponing this public relations event is totally appropriate.” Trump went on: “I also feel that during this period, it would be better if you were in Washington negotiating with me and joining the Strong Border Security movement to end the Shutdown. Obviously, if you would like to make your journey by flying commercial, that would certainly be your prerogative.” The President’s trip cancellation notice to Pelosi reportedly came “just minutes before the congressional delegation was set to depart,” reports Fox News. “Her congressional delegation military aircraft was slated to leave at 3 p.m. ET, Fox News’ John Roberts reports.” The move comes one day after Pelosi demanded the president postpone his State of the Union address, set for Jan. 29, due to “security concerns” over the shutdown’s effect on the Secret Service. “Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress on January 29th,” Pelosi wrote to Trump.

    This was soooo good! Laura Loomer & illegal immigrants crash Nancy Pelosi’s California estate Conservative activist Laura Loomer invaded the Napa Valley estate of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California) and set up a ‘sanctuary’ for illegal immigrants, amid the ongoing government shutdown over funding the border wall. In addition to a mansion in San Francisco, Pelosi owns a vineyard in Napa Valley, California’s wine country. It was there that Loomer showed up on Monday, accompanied by several men wearing yellow vests, who were reportedly immigrants in the US illegally. They climbed over the waist-high stone wall and set up a tent on the front lawn, with the word “Immorality” stenciled in red and photos of Americans killed by illegal immigrants hanging off one side. The whole thing was live-streamed. https://www.rt.com/usa/448814-laura-loomer-pelosi-protest/

    Thailand pollution 2019

    Then current air quality is unhealthy! Here is info from an expert...thanks Chris Moore. Bangkok Air Quality and Health Tuesday 15 January 2019 and the real-time Air Quality Index (AQI) reads 168 for Bangkok. Little red flags dotted on a map of areas of the city. I’ve been curious as the sources of the air pollution. You can accept as gospel what you read online or in the press. I wanted to dig deeper into understanding the nature and danger of the main air pollutants. I decided to ask an expert with no axe to grind about understanding the causes of the pollution and assessing the relative health impact of each. I reached out to an international expert Dr. Mark Jacobson, Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Director of the Atmosphere/Energy Program at Stanford University. Jacobson’s area of expertise is environmental engineering, air pollution and global warming modelling. Professor Jacobson wrote me, that “The only way to determine the relative impact of each of the sources listed is 3-D computer modeling of air pollution that accounts for emissions, atmospheric chemistry, deposition, meteorology, radiative transfer, and cloud processes.” The process is to run simulation with each source (e.g., dust, smoke from outdoor fires, vehicle exhausts, weather conditions) removed and this would establish a series of benchmarks based on any one particular source, which is causing the greatest impact. Professor said “Such modeling is actually required by law in the U.S. under the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 in, for example, ozone non-attainment regions. There are plenty of consulting companies that do this kind of work (AER, Environ, SAI, Sonoma Technology, Tetra Tech, to name a few in the California alone).” Not all of sources of pollutions are equal in the damage done to human beings. Professor Jacobson observed, “that vehicle exhaust will cause the greatest damage because the human intake fraction of vehicle exhaust air is much greater than the intake fraction of pollution from a source far away. People are literally breathing in the exhaust. The other sources are more dilute.” The PM2.5 or fine particulate matter with a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometers should be less than 50 micrograms per cubic metres. The Bangkok Post reports “The PM2.5 measured 60-81mcg on the streets and 49-79mcg away from main roads.” https://www.bangkokpost.com/news/general/1610854/bangkok-air-pollution-remains-at-hazardous-levels The best choice may be an unpopular one. We may have no choice, if supported by test results, to impose restriction on the use of cars, motorcycles, buses, vans, and trucks. The immediate question is whether vehicle exhaust air has become a public health hazard setting up long-term adverse health consequences to the population breathing the polluted air. What is weighed in this equation: The cost of disrupting transportation system or diminishing the health of the resident population to preserve the economic infrastructure. In the future, we can expect to frequently confront the public policy dilemma between choosing between economic growth and public health.

    Now the important matters in Germany...gotta git dem bread sellers 555 German bakery chain sued for selling bread on a Sunday When is the Sunday bread roll simply a tasty treat - and when is it illegal? The Higher Regional Court (OLG) Munich will decide the latter on Thursday at 10 a.m. It will specify when a bakery can sell bread on a Sunday - and if there's a legal loophole if it has cheese on it. The dispute started when the Central Office for Combating Unfair Competition sued a bakery chain with branches in Munich. A regional court in Munich dismissed the complaint, but the issue is now being examined in more detail. The accusation? The illegal sale of baked goods. Test buyers, likely hired by a competitor, had bought, among other things, baguette bread, Roman rolls and wholemeal rolls on a Sunday in February 2016 at 11:12 a.m. and at 3:46 p.m. again. So what’s the problem here? According to the Federal Shop Closing Act, bakeries are only allowed to sell rolls and pretzels for a maximum of five hours on Sundays in most German states - or three hours in Bavaria. The period in which the bakeries are allowed to open varies from municipality to municipality. https://www.thelocal.de/20181213/mun
