    • I know someone, single woman, working, who chose to pay the IRS penalty rather than pay the insurance premium; IRS penalty was more affordable. Then, she ended up in the hospital for gall bladder surgery…in longer than planned for various reasons…her bill was $58,00;, $10,00o paid up front and 48,000 over five years. Well, I guess she has a good job. So much for Obamacare.

      Are we sure the 49ers weren’t just giving up? Anyway, Pence is not going to miss anything, the game will be over by the end of the first quarter anyway. Not that I care. I will most likely never watch the NFL again. Imho, there should be no pro football. Let the college kids have fun playing the game, then get real jobs afterward. They will be better off for it.

        But sadly even college sports has succumbed to many of the same problems as the pros. When I gave up the NFL back in the 90s I thought college ball would be a good substitute. And in many ways it was, but then over time I saw that it’s got a lot of the same problems. I chose to give it all up and go partake in activities like sports and other things instead of just sitting and watching it. Now that I’m getting pretty old I can’t participate in much anymore, but I’ve found other hobbies. I just don’t miss watching anymore.

        • I used to watch the NFL all the time, as well as a lot of college games. Now, the only thing I watch is my Huskers. I am also getting fed up with all the changes, stupid rules, too many caution flags, etc., etc. in NASCAR. About to give up on them as well. Definitely gave up on that POS Earnhardt Jr., for sure. Can’t drive for squat any way. Good riddance! Not even a 10th of the man his Daddy was.

      IMHO VP Pence should have walked out of the performance of “HAMILTON” when the cast acted like jerks, but that was early days, just after election. I’m a theater person, not a football fan, but just because some actors/football players are jerks doesn’t mean theater or football are intrinsically bad. Theater has also been corrupted by globalist elitists.

    Since a lot of CTH readers are posting about James Woods today they should make an effort to watch his 1998 movie directed by James Carpenter …VAMPIRES. It’s a great movie, lots of action, lots of tongue in cheek and a primo James Woods extravaganza! I love the movie and if you like James Woods it’s a must see.

      Left leaning Seth McFarland is apparently a friend of James Woods seeing how the animated Woods, with Woods himself doing the voiceover, has been in numerous episodes of “Family Guy” and the high school in the mythical setting of Quohog, Rhode Island is called James Woods High School.

    …..As authorities search for a motive, Paddock’s finances have become a significant focal point — most notably, 200-plus casino or wire transactions by Paddock that were flagged for review by FinCEN, the U.S. government’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, which collects data to identify potential money laundering or covert terrorism financing. The FBI is also reviewing transactions by Danley that were flagged by FinCEN. According to a source familiar with the probe, the various transactions date back to 2014 and are being vigorously investigated. The sources said one transaction that has drawn significant attention is a $100,000 transfer to the Philippines by either Paddock or Danley prior to Sunday’s shooting. Danley was in the Philippines when Paddock opened fire on the crowd in Las Vegas…..

    Odd that Obama and his spy network – literally accessed and unmasked whoever and whenever they wanted — wouldn’t have abused his power to at least look into Weinstein, especially before sending his daughter to him?

    I actually could understand the reasoning behind that — I wouldn’t approve of it, but as a parent, would UNDERSTAND that…..

    Those who are antiTrump are pro left when all is said and done. How they can justify this in light of the challenges facing the world today, I do not know,

    That being said, I feel that there is some hope for them, and even for those who are simply clueless democrats if they can be made to realize what the left has become.

    IMO, our president needs more allies in his fight to get the truth out to the public. We can do this❣🙏

    This guy knew Paddock and his girl friend, said there was nothing exceptional about either of them apart from one thing that he found surprising, neither of them drunk alcohol, ever. OK many people don’t but it could be a pointer that they were muslims. Skip to 5:55 if you’re in a hurry.

      That is interesting about the not drinking alcohol. I swear I have seen a picture that they keep showing of him with a drink in his hand and it looks like he is at a bar. Maybe it is soda, I don’t know. This is really peculiar.

        Yes, I thought it was very interesting as Steve Wynn is no guy off the street.

        Other reports have said that Paddock turned mean when he drank and that he reeked of alcohol.

        We have very little real info on this case, and most of that seems contradictory.

        Yeah, the famous pic of him with his eyes closed–wasn’t that a shot glass in his hand? I’ll have to go hunt down the photo and double check. Of course that doesn’t mean he had alcohol in the shot glass, but seems unusual to drink water out of a shot glass. And of course I may not be remembering this correctly it could have been another type of glass….

    • Sandra-VA says:

      What is REALLY interesting is that Wynn resorts profiles their customers. There were zero red flags. And I can tell you that there was probably a far more in depth background check than anything done by the government agencies… and it was most likely shared with the other major casinos. This guy was a KNOWN entity, not unknown.

      So, something is very wrong with this situation.

      Also, don’t forget that the retirement community in Mesquite was populated with ex-spooks etc.

      Bits and pieces trickling out.

      The last part about the service elevator was interesting too. I think that was a slip. Wynn knows more about this event than we do.

      Most people don’t know that Wynn is basically blind. That being said, he is so smart that his other senses mostly make up for that blindness. Plus, he hires the best of the best. Sounds like someone else, doesn’t he?

      Any time a name pops up in the news, my curiosity always causes me to run the name in a WikiLeaks Hillary Clinton e-mail search. “Harvey Weinstein” yields some interesting results.

      In one e-mail to Hillary via Capricia Marshall, Harvey offers to send movies for Hillary’s review and opinion. (I guess work was slow as Secretary of State) so she could be a movie critic in her down time.

      In reference to his movie “The King’s Speech” Harvey states: “It’s a fun movie that is much in the tradition of SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE, again I think you would both like it (and Hillary would approve because it’s PG-13 with not too many swear words).”

      I guess her reputation of swearing like a drunken sailor are all wrong. Apparently, she’s really a straight-laced prude. /s

    Benjamin Netanyahu – brilliant man!

    Harvey Levin interview on “Objectified” (Fox, to be replayed at 11 pm)

    Per PM Netanyahu:

    “I like the idea of representative government, says you’re elected, you’re given a period to exercise that power and then they can throw you out. The problem today for politicians is not being disconnected it’s that they’re overly connected and they’re completely at the mercy of these shifting tides of opinion that are reflected on the net (internet) and that’s not good”.

    Yes, PM Netanyahu is brilliant.

    I respect and admire him, greatly.

    If you have the opportunity, please watch this interview.

      Because of my years in the military and my familiarity with the way intelligence work, that’s why if you walk into my office you won’t see a computer, you won’t see a television screen, and you certainly won’t see a cellular phone, because anyone using this stuff today is exposed. Now, I’m not sure anybody is interested in what I have to say if I was a private citizen but I’m sure they’re interested when I’m the Prime Minister of Israel.
