      We’re still doing this?  Absolutely!  Despite all the compelling reasons to just let everyone go home and enjoy and extended offseason, this is not an option.  The games must be played, and therefore we the long-suffering fans will feel compelled to watch.  Even games no reasonable football fan would choose to watch like, for example, today’s Redskins Jets game.   

      Today’s convergence of sadness features the 30th ranked scoring offense (Jets 14.4 ppg) versus the 32nd (Redskins 12.0 ppg).  The first team to 15 wins!  With no playoff aspirations the compelling story lines for this game are largely limited to watching young players (hopefully) develop.  Dwayne Haskins gets his first home start and Derrius Guice is back from injury.   
       
      My, reasonable, goals for today’s game:  
      1- Score a touchdown 
      2- Score more than 17 points.   
      3- Haskins throws for 200 yards or more with no interceptions  
      4- Guice runs the ball at least 10 times and finishes at 3.5 yards per carry and healthy.  
       
      Hoping for a win at this point feels like setting myself up for disappointment, so I’m happy to settle for an entertaining loss.  
       
      Special thanks to @pez for some excellent Guinness beef stew.  If you absolutely have to stand in a frozen parking lot at 9am, the best place to do it is at the Extremeskins Tailgate with Pez and @Huly.  Great fans, great people. 
       
      The Redskins have declared for the following players as inactive: 
      Paul Richardson  
      Colt McCoy 
      Deshazor Everett 
      Chris Thompson  
      Ross Pierschbacher 
      Vernon Davis  
      Tim Settle  
       
      The Jets declared the following players as inactive  
      Nate Hairston  
      Darryl Roberts  
      Paul Worrilow 
      Matthias Farley  
      CJ Mosley  
      Jordan Willis  
      Leo Koloamatangi 
       
      1st Quarter - Redskins 0 - 6 Jets
      If you wanted to sit in the cold and watch a football game with some Jets fans at FedEx, but were worried that there were not enough seats available, I have good news.  There’s plenty of space available, so come on down and prove you’re a real fan by sitting though this in person.
       
      Jets dominated the 1st quarter even though they only scored 6 points.  The reason being that Washington managed only 13 yards of offense and a single first down.  
       
      Question: Is it still a check down pass if the QB never looks at anyone else?
       
      2nd Quarter - Redskins 3 - 20 Jets
      The Jets have achieved an insurmountable 13 point lead early in the 2nd quarter.  All hope is lost.

      Is there a more perfect example of the Redskins offense than their first scoring drive in the 2nd quarter?  Interception gives the Redskins the ball on the Jets 16 yard line.  They proceed to march 10 yards backwards before kicking a field goal from the Jets 26.  It's perfect.  Two or three more field goals we can call it a day. 

      The Jets score again and if feels like they are are just piling on at this point.  Three touchdowns in the first half for them, just three points for the redskins.  Our streak of no touchdowns has now extended to 15 quarters. 
       
      3rd Quarter - Redskins 3 - 20 Jets
      There is a spider slowly descending from the ceiling in the press box and it's the most interesting thing that's happened during the third quarter of this game. 
       
      I have decided to allow the spider to live, provided it does not touch me.  I'm off to get some more caffeine. 

      4th Quarter - Redskins 17 - 34 Jets
      The first wave of Redskins fans, the few that are here, started streaming towards the exits after that 4th Jets touchdown.  As if the Jets didn't have this game wrapped up in the 2nd quarter. 
       
      Jet have now more than doubled their average points per game and have matched their season high of 34 points (and they missed two field goals in this game). 
       
      TOUCHDOWN REDSKINS!  THE DROUGHT IT OVER!  Guice took a short pass from Haskins  all the way to the house.  2 point conversion is successful on a pass from Haskins to Quinn. 
       
      The Redskins score another touchdown!  This feels like an embarrassment of riches, even if we are still certain to lose this game. 
       
      End of Game.
       
      Let's review those reasonable goals I mentioned earlier:
       
      1- Success.
      2- Close enough, I'm counting it
      3- Haskins did throw for over 200, but unfortunately did have an interception. 
      4- Guice was not given the opportunity to run the ball ten times today.  He did however score on a 45 yard TD pass and finish the game healthy.  I'll take it.
       
      Even though the Redskins lost, it was good to see the offense show some faint signs of life and end the streak of games without a TD.  The team looked competitive for much of the second half, and perhaps they could have made this a fun game if they carried that same energy throughout.  It was good to see Guice and Mclaurin show out today.  I think both of them have a future with this team that I look forward to seeing.

The CIA, the entirety of the U.S. Intelligence Community, and even the Republican controlled senate all agree that Russia actively worked to assist Trump in the election. You sound like a dumbass.

And not a one of them said it influenced any election result. In fact, to date, they've said it had no effect.

 

Your opinion of me, and 25 cents, will by you a nickel, and two dimes.

Successful economic and deregulatory practices - so far (still think Tariffs may reverse that). Does that count as a defense? (But he hasn't done anything other than said Tariffs, in those areas that any other Republican wouldn't have done).

Rosenstein said it. And he seems to want it to have, as much as any lefty alive.

http://dailycaller.com/2018/07/13/rosenstein-no-allegation-hacking-changed-vote-count/

 

Rosnstein said there was no allegation in the specific indictments he was referencing, which is a lot different than your assertion that Russia didn’t impact the election. Because the intel community and the Senate invesigation has asserted they did.

Quote

Tuesday's report touched on several facets of Russia's election interference, including its social-media disinformation campaign, Russian President Vladimir Putin's intentions in ordering the influence campaign, government-linked hacking and cyberattacks, and Russia's use of its state media outlets to spread misinformation. 

The ICA said that while Moscow had long sought to undermine the Western world order, its election meddling represented "a significant escalation in directness, level of activity, and scope of effort compared to previous operations." 

Tuesday's report cited details that have come to light since the January 2017 report as further supporting the ICA's conclusions, including: 

  • Russia's extensive use of a notorious troll farm, the Internet Research Agency, to conduct a widespread social-media disinformation campaign. 
  • Russia's hack of the Democratic National Committee before the election. 
  • Russia's attempts to breach critical election infrastructure shortly before Election Day 2016. 
  • The panel also said it had gained additional insights into Russia's interference from interviews of key figures as part of its own Russia investigation.

 

 

I, of course, understand that this kind of thing doesnt get reported on the Daily Caller.

Well, of course you would. You must be choosing to believe every "boogeyman" thrown at Trump, while wishing to silence any challenge to them.

 

That's a pure lefty tactic. They want everyone, and anyone who doesn't worship at their altar, to be silenced, drawn, and quartered.

Luckily, there are two sides to a coin.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos allegedly said the students who booed her May 2017 commencement speech at a historically black college didn't have the "capacity to understand" what she wants to accomplish, according to the tell-all book by former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman. 

Manigault Newman describes DeVos' comments during a conversation with her after the May address at Florida's Bethune-Cookman University as "meaning, all those black students were too stupid to understand her agenda." 

Manigault Newman trashes DeVos throughout the book and calls her "woefully inadequate and not equipped for her job." She alleges President Donald Trump referred to the education secretary as "Ditzy DeVos" and promised to "get rid of her" after the Bethune-Cookman event. 

In the book, "Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House," Manigault Newman also blames DeVos for confusion around an annual conference in D.C. for historically black colleges and universities, which the administration downsized in September 2017. She writes that DeVos was the "number one driver for cancellation."

You've gone from "There was no interference" to "No votes were changed" really quickly. Without ever admitting how wrong you were in the first place.

There was no interference (that mattered) because no votes were changed. And yes, I can turn off the light and get in bed before the room gets dark. Fast!

 

But you keep playing message board shenanigans. Because independent thinking, common sense, and realism doesn't seem to be your forte.

I’m so tired of seeing this thread hijacked for a couple days so we can let this moronic sheep peddle his lies and talking points while I watch you all try to debate and reason with him. 

 

You cant debate with him because he doesn’t debate in reality. Truth, reason and facts are whatever he wants them to be. He has proven with every post that he is not worth the time so can we all please just move on and ignore this Fox News troll.

asking how it could or could not have impacted the election is a who knows deal.

 

 

https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/how-much-did-russian-interference-affect-the-2016-election/

 

I for one believe Cruz woulda been POTUS.

 

Your link is saying that it’s impossible to measure. Here’s the conclusion:

 

Quote

But if it’s hard to prove anything about Russian interference, it’s equally hard to disprove anything: The interference campaign could easily have had chronic, insidious effects that could be mistaken for background noise but which in the aggregate were enough to swing the election by 0.8 percentage points toward Trump — not a high hurdle to clear because 0.8 points isn’t much at all.

With all due respect, that's all meaningless drivel. Russian disinformation is no different than the disinformation spewed by both political party's.

no one needed the Russians to tell them that Hillary was terrible candidate. Loathed by her own party, though they were obligated to support her after buying her off in 2008. And, as equally despicable as Trump. She got her ass kicked by a completely unqualified Obama in 2008, (because of his race). So, getting her ass kicked again in 2016 is no surprise, at all. Except to the media who did everything in their power to get her elected.

Of all the people I know who voted for Trump, not one of them was accompanied to the polls by a Russian.

It's one of the wildest comedies ever pushed by the left.

Well this is some impressive revisionist history. She won the popular vote by 4 million votes despite a foreign enemy interfering. 

 

I rhink you also checked every box in the conservative victim card in that one post. :806:

 

 

Edit:  okay, ill stop feeding the troll now. :kickcan:
