      In today's Divisional Debacle, the Defense under Greg Manusky in the first half, gave up 207 yards of offense (105 rushing/102 passing) and two touchdowns.  That said, they did manage a single INT on which the Offense actually managed to score a touchdown off of. They allowed 12 of 16 passes to be completed . 
       
      In the second half it was 107 yards given up (58 rushing//49 passing) a field goal and a touchdown. They traded their first half pick for a second half sack. However, Dallas completed all five of their pass attempts. 
       
      Don't read that thinking "Well it seems like they tightened up some in the 2nd half."  They didn't. They simply had about half the plays in the second half. 30 plays in the First and 18 in the Second.
       
      So far in two Divisional matchups, the Defense has faltered in the Second half. They start out like a house of fire for the first few drives until their opponents gradually make adjustments. This Defensive coaching staff fails make any adjustments, whether in game or at the very least at Halftime. They've given up over 30 points per game for a total of 63 points given up in two games. While the Bears are up next, the Pats await and they've put up over 70 points in two games. Yeah. Ok. They did shut out the Dolphins today which is looking like the NFL version of ... ahem... shooting fish in a barrel. 
       
      The frustrating thing is Manusky is the DC that the Front Office actively looked to replace during the off season without firing him. When you know they're looking to replace you, most people would make a concentrated effort to show an improvement. Yet Manusky's Defense still keeps acting like it's starring in Groundhog Day.
       
      In his post game presser, when asked directly about if any coaching changes would be made, Gruden said "No, I think after two games – you’re talking about playing two very good offensive football teams and two of the best offensive lines in pro football we just played back-to-back. That’s no excuse whatsoever, but I don’t think we need to hit the panic button yet. We just have to continue to focus on what we can do better to win. Get Jonathan [Allen] in here, get a couple of our corners back in here and let’s go back and strap it up against Chicago [Bears] next week and see what happens.” 
       
      Here's another frustrating thing. The defensive communication was an issue last season as well. Wasn't this supposed to have been worked on during OTA's and Training Camp? It's understandable that the rookies would still be on a learning curve, but NFL vets like Collins and DRC you'd think they would have down by the start of the season. 
       
      Gruden said they're a very talented group on Defense but that they weren't reaching them. When questioned as to why the coaching staff that has been in place for several years, wasn't reaching them, he defended the comment as them being a young defense. “We have some moving parts now. Landon Collins is a veteran guy but this is his first year, [Montez] Sweat’s in his first year, [Cole] Holcomb, it’s his first year, [Jon] Bostic is in his first year. We’re playing Dominique [Rodgers-Cromartie] at corner and this is Jimmy Moreland’s first year, so it’s not like we are the most experienced group. We feel like were very talented, but we`re still fighting through somethings. There are a lot of things to look forward to, without a doubt, but we do have to play better and strap it up and get back to work."

Almost all countries who voted "for" are countries that have adopted a far-right agenda over the last 6-10 years. They love "freedom" but they love Putin. Boggles the mind.

I don’t think that’s true.  Ireland, Spain, France, Germany, etc...

Reading online from reliable sources, this seems to be a misrepresentation of facts by RawStory and nothing concerning.

He's not going to say anything that isn't already in the report. If the Dems were smart, they'd go with simple yes and no questions that are easy to understand for a good chunk.

 

"Did the report clear the President of obstruction?"

 

Don't try to make him seem political. That will blow up in their faces.

The thing is anyone who wants to know what is in the report can read it for themselves.  Those who don't want to know what is in it, aren't likely going to be compelled to listen to Mueller.  I am sure Fox isn't going to suddenly have some kind of epiphany and admit they haven't been covering any of the actual contents of the report.

 

To me the most important question for them to ask is what his intention was to happen after he turned in his report.  In his professional opinion, because he could not bring charges, was his intention for congress to make that decision after further investigating the report's findings.

I recently edited a news story about the rise of the "right" in Europe. You're correct that those countries you listed are not in the spotlight for it yet, but even some of them are not far behind the trend.

Remember- In France, Macron only won by a nose hair and the recent polls there are not kind to him.

They really just think of their viewers as the dumbest people walking the Earth. And they are rewarded for doing so. 

 

A thief thinks everyone else is a thief.  Or in this case, a stupid unqualified hack.

Until their viewers prove otherwise, that is exactly what they are.

Fox has learned that their audience isn't just stupid, but WANTS to be as stupid as they've allowed themselves to become.

Fox has always been about creating a narrative and pounding away at it.  Everything else doesn't matter.

On top of this, the house goes on recess the next week for five weeks. So they have this testimony and the public will then forget about it over the next month.

 

That is if he even says anything not in the report, which he won't.

This is all political theater.
