TRUMP’S RACIAL NATIONALISM NOW HAS A FACE: MEET ADAM PURINTON

Posted in TRUMPIST VIOLENCE on 24/02/2017 by Diane Valencen, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H [Journ.], ArF J., M.F.

Trump supporters this morning will no doubt being churning out column meters of “black crime” statistics in an attempt to tamp down the vicious attack in Olathe, Kansas against two engineers from India.

adam-purinton

Wednesday night at around 19h 15m CST a white man identified as Adam Purinton walked up to Srinivas Kuchibhotla, 32 and Alok Madasani, 32 and told them to “get out of my country” before firing at least four shots. A bystander who heroically lunged at Purinton, Iain Grillot was also wounded. Kuchibholta died of his wounds at a local hospital and Madasani is in critical condition. Purinton who fled on foot was found 5 hours later in a restaurant in Clinton, MO seeking to hide out after telling a bartender he’d “killed two Middle Eastern men.” India is in southwest Asia. And so the reward of all of Trump’s calls to violence is finally in the hands of his pitiful broken supporters. I pray this is one awful isolated incident but I fear that there are thousands upon thousands of bitter Adam Purintons out there in the flyover states spoiling to take their turn at evil.

Purinton is being held in lieu of US$ 2 000 000 bond.

THE CURIOUS CASE OF TEXAS LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR DAN PATRICK TWEETING THIS MORNING

Today is my day off and I got up late, started my computer and grabbed a cup of coffee. The first thing I saw in the news was the mass shooting in Orlando, Florida. I’ve been watching coverage ever since. This morning, about 50 minutes before I got up, and about two hours after the Orlando SWAT team went into the Pulse and took out the terrorist Omar Mateen, Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick tweeted what is either the most hateful thing I’ve seen a political office holder or the worst timed tweet in the history of politics. I’ll let the readers decide. Time to hit the bourbon.

THE AFTERLIFE TURNS OUT IN CELEBRATION OF THE GREATEST

Posted in ENTRY COURT, MUHAMMAD ALI on 04/06/2016 by Diane Valencen, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H [Journ.], ArF J., M.F.

As a fan of the power of the individual to change society, I have had no greater hero from the era of the 1960s in America than Muhammad Ali. After sitting in Entry Court last night I realize that have no words to do justice to just how great a Human Being Muhammad Ali was in his life on Terra. Mercifully, Magis Jonathan Jasper Wright who presided over Entry Court last night did:

“No time in the history of the American condition on Terra has a single individual been such a powerful force both in sport and in society. Standing in the back of this chamber, with tears of joy in their eyes are two men who have come today to welcome you to Eternity. Mr Cosell and Mr Mandela I am honored by your presence and this Court thanks you. Mr Muhammad Ali, as you have been a shining beacon for Peace, Freedom, Strength and Civil Rights I declare you a Free Citizen here in the Afterlife and the power of your Soul is a shining example to every Sentient Being this day on Serratoth Island.”

THE ONE THING THAT COULD MAKE THE GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS EVEN MORE AWESOME: ELENA DELLE DONNE

Posted in ELENA DELLE DONNE, GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS, NATIONAL BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION, NBA on 04/03/2016 by Diane Valencen, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H [Journ.], ArF J., M.F.

I played basketball in high school and college at Marquette and absolutely love the game. I was a point guard. Yes, I am a short white girl but so were most of the people in Iowa where I grew up. Well, white, but not short. Now watching the Golden State Warriors over nearly two seasons I find only a few chinks in their armour. One is turnovers and the other . . . Well I forget because I’m too busy being amazed that they are 55-5 through 60 games. The Warriors’ bench is deep and they pass the ball better than any other team in the NBA. There’s only one thing missing I think.

Yeah, I’m serious. Next draft the Golden State Warriors should make one more bit of history. They should draft Elena Delle Donne and give her a shot at making the team. At 6’5″ 187 she could come off the bench and do just what the rest of the Warriors do night out and night in; pass with efficiency and shoot the daylights out of the basketball. Delle Donne would enhance an already near perfect offense and they would not miss a beat. On a team that could play with four against five on most nights [Fred Schwartz joked last night that CNN’s Alisyn Camerota, 5’3″ 105 could play 12 minutes a night for Golden State and they’d still score 130 points and she’d score 5 points and have 5 assists.–D.V.] Delle Donne would be an asset. Let the girl play on the big stage.

SOMETHING GOVERNOR KASICH SAID LAST NIGHT IN DETROIT GOT ME THINKING

Posted in 2016 US ELECTION, GOP 2016 CAMPAIGN, GOP MELTDOWN on 04/03/2016 by Diane Valencen, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H [Journ.], ArF J., M.F.

DIANE_TOMLINSON_6

Governor John Kasich last night made his case for being the only “adult on the stage” last night in the GOP debate saying that he didn’t want to get involved in the “scrums” of low ball politics being played out between Donald Trump and Senators Cruz and Rubio. That statement about the dead ball rugby play as a descriptive of the GOP race for the nomination in 2016 is very important. In rugby, a scrum is called for by the referee, to restart play especially in rugby union where the eight forwards link up on the referee’s direction and the scrum half rolls the ball through the tunnel. The side which gains pushing advantage wins possession.

Scrum-Pumas-All-Blacks

The important word in all of that descriptive is referee. In this GOP race there is no referee only booing or cheering fans to chart the direction of the match. It is not even about the ball anymore because Trump has changed the rules. No matter what foul he commits, not even limited to making a euphemistic allusion to the relative connection between his hand size and penis size [Imagine if Barack Obama had done that in 2008?–C.E. esq.], Trump will not go to the sin bin. Instead, his fans award him more points in the form of more votes and thereby more delegates toward the magic number of 1,237.

Trump dumped at convention

Governor Kasich, I get your point, as I get Mitt Romney’s points he made yesterday. But Unlike Kasich, Romney tried to play the game with no referee that Trump has been winning since last summer. This is a recipe for failure and the only ones that will suffer will be the GOP establishment both during this process and in the general in November. A scrum has organization and oversight. The GOP race this year with Trump’s nativist allure, pandering to bigots, misogyny and his often outright denial of things he’s on tape saying has taken the Grand Old Party and turned it into an episode of Big Brother. At the end of the day it will not be the American people who decide who the GOP nominee is it will be the GOP establishment in Cleveland who will take all of his hard work of making the Trump brand a political movement and dash it against the rocks by elevating Speaker Paul Ryan as the “brokered” candidate. This will happen no matter if Trump’s hands and his penis are appropriately large.

BREAKING NEWS: CRUZ CAMPAIGN DISCRIMINATES AGAINST ACTRESS AMY LINDSAY FOR HER SOFTCORE EROTIC FILM PAST

Posted in AMY LINDSAY, CONSERVATIVE RESISTANCE TO FACT CHECKING, GOP 2016 CAMPAIGN, GOP AS A MINORITY PARTY, GOP MELTDOWN, TED CRUZ on 12/02/2016 by Diane Valencen, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H [Journ.], ArF J., M.F.

Of course this will not come as a shock to anyone who has been watching politics in America in the last one hundred years, but it is noteworthy in the modern digital age. The Cruz campaign made a rather tame ad called Conservatives Anonymous which was running on Youtube and nationally on TV with one actress with a speaking part Amy Lindsay sitting in a group of disillusioned voters who are in a therapy session talking about how disappointed they are in the GOP field. Lindsay intones, “Maybe you should vote for more than just a pretty face.” At the end of the ad Ted Cruz comes on and says he approves the message. It’s all really tame but it does make a point.

The problem is that after auditioning for the ad and shooting the ad it was discovered that Amy Lindsay had been a softcore erotica star of some note along with roles in Pacific Blue and Star Trek: Voyager. The Cruz campaign has now taken the ad down because well, conservatives and SIMULATED SEX! To her credit Amy Lindsay is standing by her Christian Conservative values and views acting as a job not as a definition of a person’s values or worse a full meaning of who the person is. Conservatives are already falling all over themselves trying to figure out how the actress got the job and why she wasn’t vetted fully which means like most conservatives they were looking for a round peg to put in a round hole and they didn’t care where the peg had been until some of that peg’s travels could be embarrassing. And this is the part that’s scary about GOP politics. If the Cruz campaign can’t do a simple IMDB search to assure their Bible thumpin base doesn’t get red faced about the CV of an actress what will a Cruz staff do when faced with something that requires real in depth research?

I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT KEVIN “COACH” COLLINS COACHES BUT HE LIKELY ISN’T WINNING VERY MUCH

Posted in CONSERVATIVE DESPERATION, CONSERVATIVE FEAR, CONSERVATIVE HATRED OF BLACKS, CONSERVATIVE HEADS EXPLODING, CONSERVATIVE HYPOCRISY, CONSERVATIVE IDIOT OF THE DAY, CONSERVATIVE IGNORANCE, CONSERVATIVE LIES, CONSERVATIVE RESISTANCE TO FACT CHECKING on 11/02/2016 by Diane Valencen, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H [Journ.], ArF J., M.F.

I’ve read some really stupid things about sports in the last few years but this one has to take the grand prize. Well, at least up to this point in 2016. Let me preface this as I often have to do that the person making these comments is a conservative and, equally, as I often have to do I must say that it is the product of a febrile mind that has been twisted to the right heavily by gravity against a skull made of stone and religion of the self worshipping. That out of the way I just read an article written by Collins at his website Coach Is Right where he complains about comments made by NBA Hall of Fame Center Kareem Abdul Jabbar about Dallas Mavericks power forward Dirk Nowitzki. First, the comments by Abdul Jabbar in context, during a question and answer period, at a lecture with noted economist Tyler Cowen at George Mason University nine days ago:

AUDIENCE MEMBER: Has there been an unstoppable move in the NBA since the skyhook? And I bring up Dirk’s fadeaway.

ABDUL-JABBAR: You asked about Dirk Nowitzki. Dirk Nowitzki’s shot is very hard to block, but I don’t think that he was able to have a dominant career because he couldn’t do other things. If he could have shot like that and rebounded and played defense and blocked shots, then he would have been all-around, and he would have gotten more credit. He was like a one-trick pony.
You want guys that can shoot like that on your team. I’m not saying that he lacked value, but he would have been considered at a higher level if he had done more on the court other than just shoot the ball.

And now the reaction to that question and answer from Kevin “Coach” Collins:

Recently we’re reminded of the jealousy and hatred some Black athletes feel toward White players who excel in a sport Blacks think they own. The stream of racist bile from Kareem Abdul-Jabbar directed toward the Dallas Mavericks’ future Hall of Famer Dirk Nowitzki is a handy example of this.

When asked about Nowitzki’s shot, Jabbar launched into a stupid and unsupportable racist attack on Nowitzki’s accomplishments as an NBA player.

“You asked about Dirk Nowitzki. Dirk Nowitzki’s shot is very hard to block, but I don’t think that he was able to have a dominant career because he couldn’t do other things. If he could have shot like that and rebounded and played defense and blocked shots, then he would have been all-around, and he would have gotten more credit. He was like a one-trick pony. You want guys that can shoot like that on your team. I’m not saying that he lacked value, but he would have been considered at a higher level if he had done more on the court other than just shoot the ball.”

For the record, Dirk Nowitzki, who was a ninth pick, is now the only player to amass 25,000 points, 10,000 rebounds, 1000 blocks, 1000 3 point baskets and 1000 steals. He has been an NBA champion and League MVP. Nowitzki is a 13 time All- Star. He was the first Maverick voted to the All-NBA team and along with Jabbar, Nowitzki is one of only two players to have four consecutive 30 point, 15 rebound playoff games.

It is pretty clear that Jabbar hasn’t really kept up with what is going in the NBA. Maybe it’s because not many people in the NBA liked him. Not surprisingly, when he retired the offers of coaching jobs he assumed would come in abundance never materialized.

As a proud practicing Muslim, Jabbar must be viewed carefully. The guy doesn’t like White people going back to when his high school coach called him a N^%%#r during half time of a big game.

When Larry Byrd beat the Pistons in the playoffs during his rookie year, Dennis Rodman joined Isiah Thomas in saying Byrd would not be seen as such a great a player if he was Black. Rodman eventually proved himself to be a moron and Thomas made a habit of sexually harassing the women who worked for him. Jabbar converted to a religion that hates Christians; especially White Christians so where is the character difference among them?

Okay, you read that for yourself where’s the racism part come in? Abdul Jabbar simply said what he felt about a player and his career? Had he begun, “Well I think that cracker is a fluke . . .” then maybe Collins would have a leg to stand on here. But I think before I get to the fun part of this post [because after all this vinegar you deserve some honey] sample this bio of Kevin “Coach” Collins from his own blog:

Dr. Kevin “Coach” Collins, a member of American Mensa and the Sons of the American Revolution, holds a doctoral degree in Public Administration from Nova Southeastern University, and brings a unique background to his endeavors. He is a Viet Nam era Marine and a retired NYPD Honor Legion street cop, who was assigned to many sensitive positions during his time with the Department.

For many years he was an adjunct professor of Behavioral Science at several colleges in the NYC area. His love of playing and teaching basketball has brought him the name, he is known as to his friends: “Coach.” Dr. Collins has recently completed his fourth book America Island a novel about how a band of American patriots who can see no other way to survive buy an island and start their own new country, America Island is available now at Wavecloud.com for just .99cents.

One last thing about Collins; his book is overpriced by a dollar.

Now for the fun part. Listening to the lecture with Cowen and Abdul Jabbar got me to thinking about an all time economics and basketball team! Starters:

Adam Smith
Michael Jordan
John Maynard Keynes
Bill Russel
Bob Cousey

Bench:
Joseph Stiglitz
Paul Krugman
Wilt Chamberlain
Kareem Abdul Jabbar
Walt Frazier
Karl Marx
Moses Malone
