The National Football Championship Disaster

This year’s National Championship game should have been one of the best ever, but the NCAA, in its infinite wisdom, all but guaranteed that wouldn’t be the case. For the first time ever, they moved the championship game to an outdoor stadium on the west coast, Santa Clara, CA (just outside of San Francisco) to be precise. This is the stadium the 49ers play in and is truly hated by NFL players because the drainage and turf on the field are the absolute worse in the NFL when it gets wet. Well guess what, it will begin raining there today through game time Monday and beyond. Temperatures will be in the mid-50s at game time and the field will be a soggy, sloppy mess. To make things even more dicey, they replaced the sod (turf) less than two weeks ago. Here’s my take: It will really come down to who can adjust best to the rainy, sloppy conditions and make the fewest mistakes in the process. The NCAA sure ‘screwed the pooch’ on this venue. Sadly, the biggest support base to turn out for either team will be their bands and cheerleading squads. Because it is on the other side of the country from their fan bases, it is outrageously expensive for travel there, lodging and meals, especially for families with young children in school. My point has been proven by the fact they have reduced the price of all tickets 50% because there are few takers, fans or locals! Having the game in Atlanta would have been a sellout!!!!! Unforgivable! The Tide will show Californians how the game is really meant to be played! I sincerely hope no players are seriously injured because of a nearly unplayable field! Roll Tide! #NCAA #NCAAscrewedthepooch

Rick’s Editorial: Division, Whining, Finding Fault, Half-Truths and Lying

We are about to welcome in a new year and with it comes, well, who knows what! One thing is certain, some things will not change and may in fact, become more pronounced. As a nation divided, there are numerous issues facing us and I question if any of them will change for the better in 2019. What I’m presenting is nothing new, but I feel compelled to address a few of the issues for posterity sake. Who knows, someone might put it in a ‘time capsule’ for a future generation to read and grimace, questioning how we could have allowed ourselves to get to this point. Read More »

Rick’s Editorial: The Battle to Secure the Border

The idea for the subject of an editorial usually comes to me when I least expect it. Sometimes it comes during a conversation with a friend or acquaintance, from something I see or hear from various sources and sometimes (more often than not) the thought just appears out of nowhere. As troubling as this topic is for our country and considering the relentless discussions and media coverage, today’s topic hit me like a bolt of lightning when I read a news banner on the bottom of the television screen. Daily, we hear/see the term ‘Battle to Secure the Border’ and have come to accept it to mean one thing, when in fact, the very essence of the subject means something quite the opposite (depending on the lens you are looking through).

Rick’s Editorial: What if? No Borders, No Sovereignty and No Truth!

I’m back! After five very exciting months researching, compiling and preparing my family’s history, my work with it is done. And yes, it feels like there is a void in my life now that it has been published and distributed. The last thing on my mind going into this week was to write an editorial, but so much misinformation is being spewed regarding our border, protecting it and our sovereignty, my message is screaming to be put down in writing.

Entertainers Should Stick to Entertaining!

Rick’s Editorial

Since my dad’s passing the first of August and then having to deal with Hurricane Florence, I took a couple of months off from writing.

So much has gone on in the news lately, it became utterly mind-cluttering, therefore, I just decided to let it all pass. Now that I’m rejuvenated, I’m ready to carry on.

In my opinion, what I am about to present was self-destructive and totally unnecessary.

Is Brett Kavanaugh being “Roy Moored?”

Is Brett Kavanaugh being “Roy Moored?”

It was less than one year ago during the special election for U.S. Senate in Alabama when the Washington Post published a story of alleged sexual misconduct against Judge Roy Moore in Alabama. Moore was running as a Republican to fill the seat held by placeholder Senator Luther Strange. Strange, the former Alabama Attorney General, had been appointed to fill the vacancy left when Jeff Sessions was appointed U.S. Attorney General by now disgraced Alabama former Governor Robert Bentley. Under allegations of sexual misconduct of his own, Bentley was removed and replaced by Lt. Governor Kay Ivey. Under pressure from Alabamians, Ivey was compelled to hold a new election to find Sessions’s replacement, something the Alabama Constitution requires. Many thought it odd that Bentley would elevate Strange since the AG’s office was investigating Bentley on the very charges that would bring him down.

Gregg Jarrett: If Rod Rosenstein defies Trump’s order to declassify documents, he should be fired

Gregg Jarrett: If Rod Rosenstein defies Trump’s order to declassify documents, he should be fired

President Trump has ordered that numerous documents involving the Russia investigation be declassified.  The records have long been sought by Congress under lawful subpoenas.  Yet, the FBI and Department of Justice have consistently obstructed the release of these materials under the guise of “classified” secrets.  This is a convenient alibi all too frequently employed to cover-up wrongdoing and abuse of authority by those we entrust to uphold the law.

China has a ‘chilling’ system to control everyone

China’s chilling dictatorship is moving quickly to introduce social scorecards, in which all citizens will be monitored 24/7 and ranked on their behavior.  The Communist Party’s plan is for every one of its 1.4 billion citizens to be at the whim of a dystopian social credit system, and it’s on track to be fully operational by the year 2020.

Breaking: Obama Made ‘Secret Rules’ for Targeting Journalists with FISA Warrants

(Big League Politics) – President Donald Trump has been accused by the liberal corporate media of whipping up a hateful frenzy against the press. But while CNN’s Jim Acosta grandstands against Trump, real journalists are still reeling from the draconian extrajudicial measures that Barack Obama and his administration used to target them for exposing truth.

An Eleventh-Hour Ambush

Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation has, like that of Clarence Thomas before him, been thrown into chaos with an eleventh-hour allegation of sexual misconduct. Christine Blasey Ford, now a California professor of psychology, told the Washington Post over the weekend that Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high-school party in the 1980s. According to Ford, Kavanaugh and his Georgetown Prep classmate Mark Judge, both drunk, threw her in a room before Kavanaugh tried to take her clothes off and force himself on her. She says she escaped, hid in a bathroom, and left the party. He strenuously denies the allegation, as does Judge.

Kavanaugh, too? Christine Blasey Ford’s account is missing key details of assault

Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, doesn’t know when or where the attack against her occurred. We should listen to her, but we should also ask questions.

Something awful happened to Christine Blasey. At 15 years old, at a small gathering of partying high school students, she claims she was assaulted by two boys, one in particular who actually covered her mouth so no one could hear her scream.

It Wasn’t Comey’s Decision to Exonerate Hillary – It Was Obama’s

The thing to understand, what has always been the most important thing to understand, is that Jim Comey was out in front, but he was not calling the shots.

On the right, the commentariat is in full-throttle outrage over the revelation that former FBI Director Comey began drafting his statement exonerating Hillary Clinton in April 2016 – more than two months before he delivered the statement at his now famous July 5 press conference.

THE CLARENCE THOMAS INQUISITION REVISITED: BRETT KAVANAUGH IN EGYPT

The Preacher wrote: “That which has been is that which will be, and that which has been done is that which will be done. So, there is nothing new under the sun” (Ecclesiastes 1:9).

There are lessons to be learned from an understanding of how the Bibledeals with false accusations, the use of evidence, and the biblical method of handling disputes.

Graham on Kavanaugh: Dems ‘Can’t Beat Him on the Law, So They’re Trying to Destroy His Life’

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham reacted Monday on “Hannity” to an allegation of sexual misconduct against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Graham, a Republican on the Judiciary Committee, said the allegation is “serious” but is also 36 years old.

Graham, who served as a military attorney before he was elected to the Senate, said a criminal case could not be brought because the allegation is too old and a civil suit would be problematic because it is too hard to prove.

Media Fail: FBI Not Interested in Feinstein’s Kavanaugh Hoax — but ‘Pro’ Journos Take the Bait

The FBI will not be investigating Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) last-second attempt to smear Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

After countless hours of hearings, a number of in-depth background checks, thousands of questions asked and answered, and numerous one-on-one meetings with senators of both parties, at the very last second Feinstein dramatically released a letter (she has reportedly had in her possession for months) to the FBI.

The #MeToo Kavanaugh Ambush

The woman accusing Brett Kavanaugh of a drunken assault when both were teenagers has now come forward publicly, and on Monday it caused Republicans to delay a confirmation vote and schedule another public hearing. Yet there is no way to confirm her story after 36 years, and to let it stop Mr. Kavanaugh’s confirmation would ratify what has all the earmarks of a calculated political ambush.
