    I had never heard of Christopher Johnson before, but I”d buy him a beer:

    Despite the NFL’s approval of a revised policy that requires players on the field to stand during the national anthem, Jets chairman Christopher Johnson told Newsday on Wednesday that his players are free to take a knee or perform some other protest without fear of repercussion from the team.

    An excellent FUCK YOU to Trump and the NFL.

    @Steve in DUVAL!: Posted a reply to you in the previous thread.

    And re: the post, this news is terrifying. I’ll just wait for highlights. I’m at the point where looking at him or hearing his voice makes me physically ill.

    Weirdly, there are some countries where if the “short woman” is youthful looking enough, she’d be illegal for phot/porn-ography. Flat chested models have a hard time in some countries, because the law treats nude pictures of them the same as child porn, because they’re “youthful looking”.

    Or are you Corner Stone posting under a different name?

    @Steve in DUVAL!: Actually it was by reading an article about Australian models suing on right to work grounds. Labor law is weird. In fact, most things are weird under normal circumstances, and current circumstances are weirder than normal.

    Matthew Yglesias @ mattyglesias
    An obvious question: What do Nunes & Gowdy want to do that they don’t want to let Democrats (or even GOP Senators) see them doing and why should DOJ let them do it?

    I will give Nancy Pelosi five dollars is she asks that question to the cameras one White House driveway

    Adam L Silverman says:

    @Jim, Foolish Literalist: My guess is that Nunes and Gowdy will be given different/differing information in the first for those 2 only meeting than what will be given to the Gang of 8 where Gowdy will sit in for Nunes. I think they’re setting a trap to see if Nunes leaks. Either by putting the information out himself or giving it to the President.

    Yarrow says:

    @oldgold: He may, however, call in after his interview plays to talk about how great his interview was.

    All of the teams should just stay in the locker rooms during the anthem or do something that can’t be banned in protest during the anthem.

    I’ve been watching YouTube videos and live streams of the Kilauea eruptions as a distraction from all this crap. I alternate those with the Cornell Labs hummingbird stream in West Texas and the Kitten Academy live stream which is guaranteed to bring your blood pressure down. I can’t listen to tRump’s screeching anymore or even watch him with the sound off. I still feel like I’m down the rabbit hole and ate from the wrong side of a bad mushroom. I hate to think what tomorrow will be like.

    @Geeno: can most things be weird under normal circumstances? Wouldn’t that make them part of the norm, and therefore, not weird? But as I can’t remember the last time our president was a 73 year old, infantile, Cheeto colored lunatic, right now is definitely weird.

    Yarrow says:

    @🌎 🇺🇸 Goku (aka Amerikan Baka) 🗳 🌷: They should stay in the locker room until just before the game starts. The whole national anthem and military pageantry crap is stupid. Maybe this whole thing will help bring it to an end.

  27. 27
    Adam L Silverman says:

    @Jim, Foolish Literalist: @🌎 🇺🇸 Goku (aka Amerikan Baka) 🗳 🌷: The other possibility is simply that this White House, which has trouble with details, failed to remove the meeting they originally scheduled from the schedule when they scheduled the second meeting with the proper Gang of 8, but with Gowdy sitting in for Nunes. So I wouldn’t be surprised if there is only that one meeting for the Gang of 8 and not the earlier meeting with just Nunes and Gowdy. But we won’t know until later tomorrow.

    The same phrase has been in my mind for days: “Squier Affinity Stratocaster slick silver”. I keep telling myself not so soon, but the urge to acquire gear won’t go away.

    Knowing what der Scheißgibbon has on his mind (such as it is) will be useful even if it is not interesting. I look forward to the usual after-action report.

    Jim, Foolish Literalist says:

    @Adam L Silverman: Interesting– Wray and Rosenstein running a sting on Nunes?

    You heard Paul Ryan is otherwise engaged and won’t be able to attend?

  35. 35
    Adam L Silverman says:

    @MisterForkbeard: Gowdy is a former Federal prosecutor. And despite his partisan behavior with the Benghazi special committee crap, my impression is he takes his access to classified information seriously. So he knows how important it is, from his past experience as a US Attorney, to safeguard the identities of covered human sources, which is what we’re dealing with here.

    But, again, I’m only working on what is being reported and won’t know more until later tomorrow. If we know at all.

    @Yarrow:
    No argument from me. I’ve never liked how much the military is glorified but at the same time, like public schools as Kay notes, are expected to solve all of our problems as a society.

    The crap like the sports stadium pagents and the “Thank you for your service” is an overreaction to how the armed forces were viewed and treated in the aftermath of Vietnam until the start of the Gulf War imo.

    If they did that wouldn’t the players be doing exactly what Trump and the NFL want?

    🌎 🇺🇸 Goku (aka Amerikan Baka) 🗳 🌷 says:

    Hence why they should do some other form of protest that would be incredibly difficult for the NFL to ban.

    @Mandalay: No, what the NFL wants is no fuss, and what the shitgibbon wants is to have them all stand there during the national anthem and finish with a “Hail Trump!”.

  47. 47

    @Adam L Silverman: And Nunes is stupid enough that I’m sure he leapt at the chance when he was told he (and Gowdy) would get some “extra” secret info that the Gang of 8 won’t be privy to.

    Hardly. Even if every player stayed in the dressing room for the entire season, Trump would still claim victory: “Those traitorous sons of bitches were on their knees disrespecting our anthem and our flag. Well they’re not doing that any more! I put a stop to that!”.

    The players union need to recruit Avenatti. He probably knows nothing about the finer points of the relevant law, but he’d be great at pointing out on TV every night ad nauseam that the NFL is traitorous and disrespecting the flag by selling beer and hot dogs while the anthem is playing. I can see this bullshit from the NFL backfiring on them quite nicely.

    The NFL would just say that those are private vendors that they have no control over along with some additional arglebargle about “freedom” and “private enterprise”.

    That’s not exactly true, but the knuckle draggers will lap it up.
