World Series Weekend at Wrigley (GO CUBS!)

So it's no big secret I've been a Cubs for as long as I can remember, so of course I'm stoked just to see my team in the World Series this year.   It's definitely been a fun ride to say the least.   First we had an amazing regular season, then beat up on the Giants and Madison Baumgartner in an instant classic of a Divisional Series after listening to the sports media talk about how unstoppable he was, only to then deal with the same sports media praise Clayton Kershaw and his LA Dodgers before beating them in the NLCS.  Now we're starting to hear the same glorious praise yet again in regards to Corey Kluber and the Indians.   Fortunately this team is not your typical Cubs team (i.e. "lovable losers') and continue to impress.

Watch them all... it'll be good for you...  and 'Merica!

Soooo... since the last time we briefly spoke, a lot has been happening, so I thought I'd try to take a little more time out of my busy life to post.  After all, last time I rushed it a certain somebody got all pissy about discrepancies.  God forbid I allow any of you to have to sit and listen to whine-tits all weekend (Lord knows I tune it out like it's nothing).

Let's start with my personal favorite...  the Project Veritas undercover stings on Democrat groups that were paying crazies to infiltrate Trump events and cause havoc.   Personally, I love havoc, and I've always loved getting into the political fray when it comes to crazy liberals, militant unions and argumentative (D)ipshits.   These videos have not only proven what I've witnessed (and many have assumed) happens regularly in election years (bussing people in, paid protestors, suppressing registrations, etc.) but now show HOW they, a despised right-wing group, became so trusted with such prevelant information...   MONEY:

Yup, a wire transfer by foreign donors to be exact...  Hillary would be proud.   Kudos to their crew for doing such an in-depth unearthing.   You would think journalists would consider their efforts admirable.   You would (of course) be wrong.  Surprised?

(Real, hard-hitting, investigative journalism died a long time ago)

Now if this wasn't bad enough, we're now up to Podesta email leak #19 and counting.  Some great American even went so far as to make a spreadsheet of all the incriminating stuff with links to each.   Somebody buy this individual a beer for me. 

What's even better...  Democrats keep deflecting this information (saying it was obtained criminally, could be doctored, or "RUSSIANS!!!") but not once have they attempted to prove that any of the emails contained in these leaks are untrue to releasing original emails/docs to contradict all our drooling assumptions:

   Yup, just tooooooo busy.

It's the same type of same type of "counter-argument" they make while trying to minimize the Project Veritas videos.  "Whaaa, he doctored footage...  how are we to trust these videos of people saying damning things we can't even begin to defend?"   So much deflection you'd think they were playing raquetball by themselves (because nobody else is buying it).

Yet despite all this news Turd Sandwhich is still leading Giant Douche (shout out to all any South Park fans) according to many polls out there, but Anthony Salvanto of CBS says wait... you may be missing something (and I agree with him):

First time voters and even voters that may not have voted in the past few elections are starting to poke their head and it's starting to make an impact on the polling numbers.  They might voter early, or they might wait until election day, which may make the Podesta leaks that have yet to be released (not to mention the promises of other damaging releases "they" claim to have) could put an even bigger twist on the final tallies.  

If you think Hillary has it in the bag you're either lying to me or you're lying to yourself.  Many of the polls heavily favor Hilllary are relying on percentages that related to voter turnout in Obama's election years.   Here's the problem, Democrats:   Hillary Clinton ain't no Barack Obama.  

I mean, just look at all those Clinton yard signs flooding your neighborhoods, or the massive crowds her campaign is attracting.  She has no momentum and all they are trying to do is drive their busted up DNC shuttle bus across the finish line, hoping not to blow another tire (or engine) before getting them and the voters their bussing to the polls there.

Gotta love it... otherwise you'll hate it.

Well, until next time... #FlyTheW Cubs fans, hope you have a great weekend. As for the rest of you, I hope you have a slightly-better-than-mediocre weekend, unless of course you're an Indians fan...  I kinda hope their weekend sucks, for my team's sake.  GO CUBS!

I love your posts, Skinny. Great stuff.


Just go away, Hillary.

October 27, 2016 at 14:10 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

I hope your Cubbies win.

Locally there are very few Hillary yard signs, but strangely they seem to be located at the homes with extensive Halloween yard decorations. Is Satan the common denominator? (Or would that be "Demoninator"?)

Skinny, did you notice that Scott Foval guy in the first Veritas video had Iowa roots, college at Moo U and worked for Bonnie Campbell, Tom Harkin, and other Iowa D's before working for Gore. Then he apparently took his dirty tricks to Wisconsin prior to working for Team Helliry.

October 27, 2016 at 16:28 | Registered CommenterDuff, man

I see that Hillary has captured the full-throated endorsement of the Cuban commies. Hope word of that spreads statewide here in Florida, starting with Little Havana and Calle Ocho in Miami and working its way across the state.

Way to go, Hillary. Be proud of your friends. Shout it from the rooftops that the filthy commies are your allies.

We are SO screwed if that wicked witch wins.

I see that sime leftist thug, one of this 'bright lights' decided he was going to pry off Trumps Hollywood star and sell it to support the 'sexual assault' victims of Trump. All the f..king idiot did was damage the star. Now a homeless person a victim of F'd leftist/Obama economics is guarding Trump's damaged star from further vandalism. It's a perfect metaphor for this election. From the economy to healthcare everything has gotten worse under demwits. But Trump said Pussy so by all means vote Fat Liar-Crooked-Drunk Hilda in 2016..

Gary Johnson has refocused his campaign on Harambe, apparently believing that it's a winning strategy to say, "Why did they have to kill the gorilla?"

Meanwhile, back here on earth, there's a real election going on.

October 28, 2016 at 09:15 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

As a Cards fan; Go Indians. Sorry Skinny; I was on the North side last Saturday night and the arrogance of the Cubs fans was off the charts. You would have thought they won the last 20 WS..

October 28, 2016 at 10:30 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Kim Strassel! of the WSJ has done some very excellent hard hitting articles on the Clinton's. Her latest is "Grifters-In-Chiefs." Ms. Strassel also has some videos on YouTube for Prager University. YouTube is now restricting those videos. Know who owns YouTube? Google, yea' the same Google whose owners are BFF of the Clinton's. Get ready for more of this Oligarchy-State Owned media collaboration in a Clinton Administration where critical videos, print and speech are restricted or made illegal.. Reagan was right; America is just one administration away from losing our freedoms..

There’s nothing I like better than discouraged, disappointed, dispirited Rethuglicans, or “conservatives”, or Consta Toosh Anal Skollers, or alt-white-supremacists, or whatever the hell you bozos are calling yourselves these days.

Don’t forget to vote on November 35th and don’t forget to punish all the GOP Congresscritters and Senators who distanced themselves from yer hero, The Most Stunning, Monstrous, Stupendous, Repulsive Asshole Ever Nominated By a Major American Political Party.

You just underwent the biggest character test of your life. Colossal fail.

October 28, 2016 at 14:08 | Registered CommenterWinston

Well, well, well. The FBI has re-opened the investigation into The Crooked Old Bag's illegal emails. There is NO WAY this woman should be allowed anywhere near the levers of power. But if there are still enough Amerca-haters, imbeciles, and uninformed drone voters to propel her into the White House, there's always impeachment.

'Not a smidgeon of corruption', said Barack Obama.
Reopening the investigation could cause all characters involved to answer, "no comment during an investigation'.
Paul Krugman is having a meltdown! LOL What a tool!

You know this turmoil is due to disgruntled FBI agents who have all the goods. They will not go quietly.

"Comedy hold".
Is that when someone who doesn't know how time works or what porn is or triumphantly brandishes self-refuting links or yells "Romney in a landslide, idiots!" or insists the NYT will make a huge payout to Donald Trump sheers at you confidently that that elusive indictment of Hillary is finally right around the corner?

"Comedy hold". Oh man, that is some level of idiocy. I am so stealing that, "comedy hold." That's so stupid only WWM could dream it up. Never right, always certain. "Comedy hold."

Nothing so eloquently defines a small, intellectually vacant man, with nothing worthwhile to say, as his pedantic pouncing on simple typos.

What next, Winston? Will you be critiquing our wardrobes, or our choice of breakfast cereal? I know you need to keep busy with meaningless extraneous comments, hoping to deflect attention from Crooked Hillary's growing mountain of lies and malfeasance, but really, find another way. This one, unlike your leftist heroes, is transparent.

October 29, 2016 at 08:52 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Don't want a lot of reporters asking embarrassing questions about your illegal emails and a new investigation just breaking? Simple. Just shut off your campaign plane's Wifi, so that everyone stays in the dark until you have a chance to run away.

October 29, 2016 at 09:11 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Catching typos is just something to keep me awake while cataloging all the industrial grade dumbassery, hatefulness and factual wrongness. Ignorant illiterate fact-hostile people who are wrong all the time at the top of their insufferable lungs can get tiring and it's a nice diversion for me. Any word on Trump filing that lawsuit yet? Email indictments?

October 29, 2016 at 10:00 | Registered CommenterWinston

Just saw a great headline:


October 29, 2016 at 10:53 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

One of the so very many Wikileaks bits of information involves how Hillary's people "convinced" Chief Justice Roberts to rule against the plain meaning of unambiguous language in order to let the government continue to subsidize Omamcare plans even if sold on non-state exchanges.

Article here, wall Street Journal.

I wonder if that new information helped Comey realize he had been played in the same way, when he laid out the factual case for indictment, followed by the announcement that Hillary would not be charged.There is still new information in those Wiener "Dickileaks" e-mails, or Comey would not have made the announcement, but Comey is likely pressured by real FBI investigators to right his previous wrong.

If you read the letter Comey provided to the FBI underlings, it is quite clear that since Comey had directly told Congress on more than one occasion that the investigation was closed, it was appropriate to tell them when it was reopened. From Washington post. If paywall jumps up at you at that link, here is a quote from Comey's letter to FBI employees:
"Of course, we don’t ordinarily tell Congress about ongoing investigations, but here I feel an obligation to do so given that I testified repeatedly in recent months that our investigation was completed. I also think it would be misleading to the American people were we not to supplement the record."

October 29, 2016 at 11:24 | Registered CommenterDuff, man

Oh' the comedy of Fat Hilda NOW demanding transparency from the FBI and an immediate release of all the new emails. You can't make this sh*t up...

Does everyone know now who Terry Lynn Rote of Polk County Iowa is?

Does everyone now know who Andrew Spieles, a student at James Madison University is? Good. Throw the book at him.

“Harrisonburg officials and the FBI are investigating allegations of voter registration fraud after officials say almost 20 voter applications were turned in under the names of dead people. Harrisonburg Registrar Debbie Logan said Thursday that investigators have found from 18 to 20 potentially fraudulent registrations. The applications were turned in by a Democratic voter registration group called HarrisonburgVOTES,”

**Hiller Learns Of FBI Re-Opening Email Inquiry-Parody**

The Clinton's have made us the laughingstocks of the world.

October 30, 2016 at 06:39 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Lefties are in turmoil. Now we see nut jobs like Howard Dean and others posting notes about how Comey has joined forces with Putin. Yes, the leftie loons are actually saying that, on the record. Hysteria.

The lefties are reeling, trying to work out two different scenarios. First, whatever will they do if The Disgusting Crooked Old Bag loses? And second, what will they do if she wins and is impeached? A third scenario, one of a placid and successful Hillary presidency, is so remote as to be dismissed as impossible.

Meanwhile, also on Planet Kookie, Winston is still trying to convince someone that voter fraud isn't real, and should not be addressed.

October 30, 2016 at 08:00 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

We went from "The 80's are calling they want their foreign policy back.' to the Red Scare, with mean old Putin sabotaging the election.
Whatever is convenient at the time for the Dems. Never a reality based policy in sight.

October 30, 2016 at 08:59 | Unregistered Commentergriswold3

The Democrat Party "leadership" has been completely co-opted by the wackadoo left, the factually-challenged, the Stalinists, America-haters, and the "free stuff" radicals.

The Republican Party "leadership" has been co-opted by an amalgum of country club elitists, principle-deprived degenerates, and despicable cowards who wouldn't try to save their own grandmothers from a house fire.

We're screwed, unless American voters finally wake the hell up, read and learn the Constitution, and start acting like responsible citizens instead of a gaggle of morons willing to abdicate their responsibilities and let Big Brother run their lives.

October 30, 2016 at 10:36 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

I see Fat Hilda's home town paper the Chicago Tribune is asking her to step down. So it starts. As Red lays out, Fat Hilda's and the Dems choices are bleak. Maybe Kaine is the best they have right now?

October 30, 2016 at 15:04 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

With just 9 days until election day, and with all the mail ballots already cast, how would the Dems be able to replace Hillary? Besides, I can't imagine that grasping, clawing, greedy, power mad witch going away without leaving gushers of blood on the floor.

And Tim Kaine? Really? Vote for the loser who can't draw more than 30 people to his rallies? Right.

October 30, 2016 at 15:53 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Red, I hear ya.' It's a dem shit sandwich right now. Wikileaks's announced they have Hilda's 33k deleted emails and will release them this week. Does Hilda still make it even if one work email was in those 33k deleted emails?

October 31, 2016 at 07:06 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Weiner the Peter Tweeter has 650,000 emails that the FBI is examining, in some way crucial to the investigation of The Crooked Old Bag. He is said to be "co-operating" while Huma is "negotiating" with the FBI.

But NAH! Nothing to see here, you Dem drone voters. Just vote for Hillary, because you've been programmed to do so. No thinking, please; that will just confuse you.

October 31, 2016 at 07:33 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

All you need to know about the Washington Post's journalistic objectivity:

After Comey let Hillary off the hook a couple of months ago, he was the Post's hero and shining example of governmental ethics.

After Comey reopened the investigation, he is the Post's idea of the devil incarnate, and a dangerously unethical threat to democracy.

Can anybody pinpoint the exact date, the tipping point, at which the Democrat/Media Complex succeeded in pushing the media off the cliff and ended any pretense of objectivity?

October 31, 2016 at 07:53 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Harry Reid accused Comey of violating the Hatch Act, See CNN.

And then this happened in an interview with Trey Gowdy.

October 31, 2016 at 08:20 | Registered CommenterDuff, man

Has anyone ever seen Harry Reid and Hillary Clinton in the same room at the same time? I think they're the same person, a lying, nasty, corrupt and disgusting one. Explains why Hillary wears those big baggy loose coats that look like throw rugs; easy to quick-change into a Harry Reid business suit.

October 31, 2016 at 08:39 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

What was Comey to do? The investigation into Weiner's sexting led them to the trove of emails ,some, because of their classification the agents couldn't even look at. The FBI needed authority to continue. was it denied? What happened? -//

Gris, it looks like Obama, through his lackey Loretta Lynch, tried to stop the FBI from re-opening the investigation.

If there remains anything like justice in this country, a lot of our current political class would be indicted.

It could help explain Harry Reid's black eyes, maybe Bill battered him/her.

"sexted a 15 year old and ended up screwing a 70 year old."

Hillary just turned 69. It's Trump who's seventy.
