The FreeRepublic Sunday Talk Show Thread

Meet the Press was a rollicking bastion of politics and surprises this Sunday morning.

Two big surprises. One was a guest, more on this later. The other was a new pundit on this show….none other than Chris Matthews.

Matthews was a staple on that far left MSNBC and once expressed the joy of thrills running down his leg for being near President Obama. Dear Lord this man is a sycophant and water carrier for liberals everywhere.

sundaypoli4.17.16meetpressgeorgecloonyThe special guest was George Clooney who, while hosting some kind of big money fundraiser for Hillary, did merrily admit it was an obscene amount of money. Rumor has it that the cost to sit at the head table was $300K a pop.

Clooney made no sense at all but hey, he doesn’t like the Koch brothers because…well they too contribute big bucks to politics but like most liberals, it’s only bad when the OTHER guy does it.

Then Clooney went on to lambaste us viewers for being afraid of terrorists and immigrants and we are NOT a nation of fear.

Say what?

No we don’t like ILLEGAL immigrants but we’re not AFRAID of them George the magnificent. Yeah we are not happy with terrorists and we don’t like having our limbs blown off. That’s not exactly fear, Mr. Clooney, who is only a hero in the movies.

North Carolina, site of the legislature that DARED to disallow perverts dressing as the wrong sex as assigned by God from sharing bathrooms with children, had its Governor McCrory as guest on Meet the Press. For the most part he did a nice job.

EXCEPT when it came time to defend his state’s law. Then the NC Governor seemed almost apologetic.

Why? Well I got some thoughts on this, later.

Political Cartoon of the Week

This Week with George Stephanopoulos had Hillary Clinton on and this was cool.

In defense of Hillary, the question asked her by Stephanopoulos was a bit archaic. Hillary’s reaction was sundaypoli4.17.16thisweekhillaryprecious.

“Your former co-Senator, Chuck Schumer, introduced a bill, backed by the victims of 9-11, that they can sue the state sponsors of terrorism,” I paraphrase Stephy. “But the Obama administration is against such a bill as it might bring a danger of retaliation to Americans. Who do you think is right on this matter?”

Hillary sputtered though she recovered nicely. Still and so, it was an odd question and Stephy admitted that the issue’s been around for many years. That comment kind of made Hillary look stupid.

I suspect, but am not sure, that this question came about due to the recent scuffle about revelations that the Saudis carried on like banshees over the possibility that their government might get sued.

It did kind of catch Hillary off-guard and she sputtered and said she would look into it.
My Take

As for the bathroom bill, this is obviously a project of Hollywood and they are determined that he who imagines himself as female shall be allowed to PEE AS A FEMALE QUIT TAKING AWAY OUR RIGHTS!

And of course Hollywood and its agents call up all the loser burgers like Bruce Springsteen, some businesses they got by the shorthairs, some athletes awaiting an endorsement contract.

AND THEY SHOVE THIS DOWN OUR THROATS PEOPLE BECAUSE IF I AM BORN A MALE IN MY HEAD I SHOULD PEE WITH THE MEN!

Heh.

America ain’t going to buy this but let the perverts get it out of their system.

Finally, in about two weeks I am going to be an infamous delegate to the state Republican convention here in Delaware. I have no idea what to do but they will teach me.

It occurs to me, what with Donald Trump constantly complaining about cheating and many Americans, including myself who IS a delegate, that many of us are woefully ignorant of some things.

First, political parties are not subject to any kind of federal laws as regards how they choose their candidates.

Political parties are PRIVATE entities for God’s sake. IF they want to use a spinning pinwheel to choose their candidate they can. Save campaign laws and ballot times, political parties set their own rules.

I write this because I hear so many people say, in innocence but out of ignorance, that the government should stop those Republicans from stealing the election from Donald Trump.

Or something.
