  1. Q Thank you, Kayleigh. Could you just clarify the scope of Roger Stone’s clemency? A federal judge is asking for this. Does it only apply to prison time or does it also include the two-year period of supervised release? MS. MCENANY: I don’t have the exact details for you on that, but I can follow up. What I will say is that the Roger Stone clemency was a very important moment for justice in this country. You had a completely bogus Russia witch hunt that found nothing. And in order to justify the waste of taxpayer dollars, you had Robert Mueller charging people with process crimes. And it’s really curious to me that with Roger Stone — you know, he’s charged of false statements, but McCabe was charged of false statements, lying to federal investigators; Brennan, false statements to Congress; Clapper, false statements to Congress. But last time I checked, they didn’t have 29 FBI agents wearing tactical gear showing up there at their house in a pre-dawn raid wielding M4 rifles, sweeping across their lawn, as happened to Roger Stone. They didn’t have four agents using battering rams breaking down their front door over false statements. And they didn’t have helicopters hovering over their houses and two police boats that roared up. Instead, McCabe and Clapper and Brennan and these guys are given lucrative contracts, books, contributorships. So there are really two standards of justice in this country, as Adam Schiff noted. Fortunately, he doesn’t have the facts to back up the way he meant that term.
  2. Buffalo Bills defender could be worthy of Patrick Mahomes contract, says NFL writer Everyone knew Patrick Mahomes was going to break the bank on his contract extension with the Kansas City Chiefs, but few were ready for the 10-year contract that can reach $503 million. At the end of the day, Mahomes’ contract will likely be an outlier in terms of money. Dak Prescott, Deshaun Watson and other quarterbacks looking for big paydays can try to use Mahomes’ deal to their advantage during negotiations, but it is unlikely that any of them will surpass the money the Chiefs will give Mahomes over the next decade. While no other player will likely surpass Mahomes’ salary in the near future, the Chiefs could have given an idea to other teams in terms of locking down young cornerstone players long-term. Looking over the Buffalo Bills’ roster, CBS Sports’ Will Brinson believes the team has a defender worthy of a Mahomes-like contract in terms of length. Brinson recently appeared on The Bill Barnwell Show podcast and laid out the following criteria that he would use when deciding whether or not to lock up players to decade-long contracts. Eligible for an extension Really young Played in league 3 years Franchise cornerstone After laying out the criteria, Brinson named two players he would consider based on this criteria: Joey Bosa and Tremaine Edmunds. Here is what Brinson said about the Bills linebacker. “The other guy that I think could potentially fit and I don’t know if it’s a premium enough position, but Tremaine Edmunds just turned 22 earlier this offseason. He’s only 22. He’s played two seasons. He was a Pro Bowler last year. Fantastic year. Four quarterback hits, pick, 115 total tackles, one-and-a-half sacks, nine passes defensed. He’s an all-around guy even if he’s not… even though he only plays the linebacker position. Sort of a more versatile guy so I think that Tremaine Edmunds could possibly qualify. The next offseason he’ll be 23. You’re hoping he can play at a high level for 10 years. I just think that’s the qualifications you have to look for. Somebody who was drafted super young and has produced at a high level and that you believe can continue to produce at a high level moving forward over the next 10 years knowing it’s really probably an eight year deal.” Edmunds’ size and athleticism is very rare and he is just scratching the surface in terms of what he can do on the field. Considering his intangibles, it is not a bad idea to consider locking down the linebacker long-term following the 2020 season if he continues his ascension among the best linebackers in the NFL.
  3. Bills' Josh Allen has the strongest (Madden 21) arm in NFL It’s rating release week for Madden 21, and we’re getting a bunch of hints tossed our way about player ratings in the upcoming video game. EA Sports has teamed up ESPN this week, going day-by-day releasing some overall player ratings. We currently know at least one about Bills quarterback Josh Allen, his throwing power. Allen edges out Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes for the strongest throws in the upcoming NFL football game: Unfortunately, Mahomes has Allen beat pretty mightily overall. At the time of this write up, the top-10 QB ratings were released by EA Sports. Mahomes is the lone 99 overall, even though his arm power is a 97/100 rating. The top-10 QB overall ratings are rounded out by Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, who’s at an 84 overall. In Madden 20, Allen was initially rated a 74 overall. So Allen will be an 83 or lower. Micah Hyde was the Bills’ highest-rated player at an 86 overall in last year’s game. So far we know the full ratings of a few of the Bills rookies and that’s it. Those are the wide receivers and quarterback ratings and fourth-round rookie Gabriel Davis leads that crew at a 69 overall.
  4. Ok let's be real... We know incompetent Bobby M didn't write that op-ed or his famous report. It was all written by Andrew Weissman. Now we get to see him hemming and hawing and talking about things not being in his purview again while Graham pretends that he isn't RINO slime. Graham Plans to Invite Mueller to Testify on Russian Probe Senator Lindsey Graham is preparing to invite former Special Counsel Robert Mueller to testify before a Senate panel about the probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to a spokesperson for the panel’s Republican majority. Graham of South Carolina, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, tweeted earlier that he would grant a prior request by Democrats on the panel -- made in 2019 -- for Mueller to appear. He’s been hinting at such a move for some time as a way to grill Mueller about the origins of the Russian probe and what many Republicans see as bias against President Donald Trump by the nation’s law enforcement agencies. Two days earlier Graham described the Mueller investigation as having been “biased and corrupt.” Graham finally acted after the publication on Saturday of an opinion piece in the Washington Post, in which Mueller defended his efforts against “broad claims that our investigation was illegitimate and our motives were improper.” Mueller wrote that former campaign operative Roger Stone, whose sentence was commuted by Trump on Friday, “remains a convicted felon, and rightly so.” The comments were a rarity since Mueller was tapped to oversee the Russia probe in 2017, and departed as special counsel in 2019 once the investigation was complete. “Apparently Mr. Mueller is willing -- and also capable -- of defending the Mueller investigation,” Graham said in his tweet on Sunday. On Friday Graham, who’s up for re-election this year, tweeted that Trump was justified in commuting Stone’s 40-month prison sentence, adding that “over time we learn how biased and corrupt Crossfire Hurricane and the Mueller probes were.” Crossfire Hurricane was the code name for the counterintelligence investigation undertaken by the FBI in 2016 and 2017 into possible links between Russia and Trump associates. Democrats on the Senate Judiciary panel wrote to Graham in May 2019 asking for Mueller to testify on his report, saying there were “at least 60 unanswered questions” they hoped the former FBI director could address.
  5. God forbid people have their own opinions and don't back a Marxist led organization using race as a fulcrum for unrest!
  6. In other news... REJECTED! You want to let these riots rage? Then don't expect the American taxpayer to bail you out. Feds deny Minnesota request for aid to rebuild after unrest The federal government has denied a request from Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz for federal funds to rebuild and repair fire damage from the unrest that followed George Floyd’s death. The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that Walz’s spokesman Teddy Tschann confirmed that the request for federal aid was denied, saying the governor is “disappointed.” Walz had asked President Donald Trump on July 2 to declare a “major disaster” in a request to the Federal Emergency Management Agency because of extensive damage to public infrastructure following the death of Floyd on May 25 after a white Minneapolis police officer pressed his knee against the handcuffed Black man’s neck for nearly eight minutes. Four since-fired officers have been charged in the case. A preliminary assessment of damage found more than $15 million of damages directly related to the fires. Around 1,500 businesses were damaged. Among the public structures destroyed was a Minneapolis police station that was a focus of the protests. “As we navigate one of the most difficult periods in our state’s history, we look for support from our federal government to help us through” Tschann said in a statement. Current estimates of the total damage exceed $500 million, the governor wrote in his disaster aid request.

  8. Madison Avenue shop sues Governor Andrew Cuomo over looting The Gov’s being thrown a fat lawsuit. The thrower’s lawyer Sal Strazzullo. The damages? He estimates $100 million. Co-defendants: the NYPD, Commissioner Dermot Shea, NYC, Bill de Blasio, the state of New York and others. I’m told that an official Notice of Claim has been filed with the Court of Claims. The claimant? Domus Design Center aka DDC, 134 Madison Ave. The issue deals with May 29’s frightening night when looters, rioters and thieves terrorized our city, vandalized our streets, burglarized our shops. Strazzullo: Cuomo should have worried about hospital reform instead of bail reform. Getting a free pass, some criminals were not able to be detained pending trial and now we have looters. Who’d have imagined we’d have to board up our stores? We’re not in Afghanistan. Places like Saks Fifth, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Rolex being bombed out? “Where are our tax dollars going? Rocks, bricks thrown? Glass smashed? Merchandise stolen? Thrown out? People hurt? Millions lost? Businesses destroyed? Lives crushed? Not protecting commercial properties is negligence of duty. It’s looters against New York City and state. “Paying taxes that help pay the salary of the NYPD, we expect protection in return. Where was the city? The state? Officials failing to protect their residents? Government is responsible to protect its citizens and businesses against criminals who want to do bad. “Not every lawsuit is for money. This type of suit — about the city’s acts and omissions in failing to control or otherwise restrain violent protesters, which caused destruction to claimant’s retail store — is for a point. “This will be a class-action lawsuit. Costly. Because the others will come on board.”
  9. Just a refresher on the Stone case. President Trump Just Commuted Roger Stone's Sentence, and the Left Is Freaking Out Stone was convicted on seven counts of obstruction, witness tampering, and making false statements to Congress. He was sentenced in February to 40 months in prison. He has denied any wrongdoing and has appealed his conviction. “Mr. Stone, like every American, deserves a fair trial and every opportunity to vindicate himself before the courts,” McEnany said. Aside from the bogus origins of the investigation that led to Stone’s prosecution, one of the jurors, who served as foreperson on the jury during his trial, Tomeka Hart, apparently lied about her anti-Trump biases in order to get on the jury. Hart was a former Democratic congressional candidate, whose social media was full of anti-Trump sentiment. “She obviously had a prejudice against Roger Stone, a bias in favor of his prosecution, and an interest in seeing him convicted,” explained Andrew Napolitano back in February.
  10. Roger Stone, no. Terrorists, yes? FLASHBACK: Obama Pardoned Terrorist FALN Leader Oscar Lopez Rivera During the group’s heyday from 1974 to 1983, the FALN was responsible for more than 130 bombings across the United States, the deadliest of which was the 1975 Fraunces Tavern bombing in Manhattan that killed four people and wounded 63 more. In the following years, FALN members threatened to blow up U.S. nuclear facilities, kidnapped Democratic and Republican presidential campaign workers at gunpoint during the 1980 race, and even planned to kidnap President Reagan’s son Ron in 1981. The FALN’s stated purpose for all this mayhem and terror was to create a Marxist and independent government in Puerto Rico similar to that of the communist Castro regime in Cuba. Officials Criticize Clinton's Pardon of an Ex-Terrorist An unusual combination of New York political and law enforcement leaders have condemned former President Bill Clinton's pardon of Susan L. Rosenberg, a one-time member of the Weather Underground terrorist group who was charged in the notorious 1981 Brink's robbery in Rockland County that left a guard and two police officers dead. Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, a Republican, and United States Senator Charles E. Schumer, a Democrat, were among those who criticized the pardon, as did Bernard B. Kerik, New York City's police commissioner, and David Trois, a Rockland County police union official. ''It sickened me,'' Mr. Kerik said yesterday of the pardon, one of 140 granted Saturday, the final day of Mr. Clinton's tenure. Ms. Rosenberg served 16 years in jail after she was found with a companion in New Jersey in 1984 unloading 740 pounds of dynamite and weapons, including a submachine gun, from a car. She admitted her role in the New Jersey case, in which she had planned to supply others with explosives for politically motivated bombings.
