    72 years old and never had a mission turned back by enemy opposition. Including when we were the US Army Air Forces in WWII. My service, my comrades, my honor to serve.

      I remember when he committed being intrigued and then later thinking maybe he wasn’t SEC material. I had no idea about all the injuries. In any event enjoy the below story; it’s nice to see a student-athlete who not only takes the student part seriously, but also takes full advantage of the presented opportunity.

        Fancy title to basically discuss why transfers are:

        A. Not a bad thing at all for Florida

        B. Not an indictment of Dan Mullen

        C. Necessary for the program

        The premise of explaining all of the above is that, finally, more elite recruits can trust the University of Florida again, after three years of incompetence and unprofessional, negligent recruiting by Butters, which has left the depth of this program starved for talent.

        As players sort out their situations at other schools, they can finally come to Gainesville, knowing that solid coaching, improvement and preparation for the professional ranks exists. Additionally, the momentum around the core enthusiasm from the players is drawing attention. Some of these players may have ruled out UF previously, during their initial recruiting, because of the dysfunction here.

        Also, because of the poor structuring of what talent Butters did bring in, there is massive opportunity here to play quickly. Butter's may have swung some recruiting rankings, but the key areas of the trenches were ignored completely. 2020 is going to be a hard year, as it is for any coach that takes over in a situation like Mullen's, where he has to recover from a lack of higher talent upperclassmen. To be able to bring in some players that can help fill these gaps will ease the pain somewhat.

        While I believe that the school has put a significant hindrance in front of themselves in terms of poor coaching hires, poor football, arrogance around facilities, and poor relationships in the state - I also see this staff beginning to mend some of those injuries, but need to emphasize the on the field excitement while a couple of those items take (even more) time to catch up. Transfers like Cox and, hopefully, Joseph, will keep some of that momentum going.

        Transfers are a short term fix - the long term strategy for Mullen has to be:

        1. Taking back the top talent in the state
        2. Balanced roster structure
        3. Excellence in development
        4. Winning, obviously

        But, until they get all the repairs done to what the previous tenant left behind, a short term fix, especially if not sacrificing relationships and culture, is a suitable, and necessary, means to rebuild the program.

            Alonso is in the running for Rookie of the Year, National League. He won player of the week last week.

            "Alonso, has broken the Mets record that's held since 1983 (36 years) Not yet halfway through the season, Alonso has crunched more homers (27) than any other Mets rookie in history.

            Alonso blasted his 27th last week, when he batted .427/.548/1.042 (10-for-24) with 7 runs, 3 doubles, 4 homers and 8 RBIs. His home run Sunday broke Darryl Strawberry's record but also extended his NL rookie record for home runs before the All-Star break. He's one shy of Mark McGwire's all-time record for most HRs by a rookie before July 1 (28 in 1987)." Go Gators!

                  Grant Holloway broke the 40 year old high hurdle NCAA record. It was 13 and he ran 12.98 tonight to be the first collegian to go under 13. He won, which makes him the first to win 3 indoor and outdoor championships. His goal this year was to go under 13. So congrats to him.

                  The men's track is in the thick of it to win it all. I'll keep you posted, but it'll be tough for them to win it all again.

                            Here's a few things to chew on.



                            AMERICA'S CORRUPTION CLUB
                            courtesy William McNiff

                            Here's what it looks like when all the pieces are sewn together. It smells like conspiracy and treason. Everyone needs to read this. Slowly, and patiently, because it’s very important.....

                            From 2001 to 2005 there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

                            A Grand Jury had been impaneled.

                            Governments from around the world had donated to the “Charity”.

                            Yet, from 2001 to 2003 none of those “Donations” to the Clinton Foundation were declared.

                            Hmmm, now you would think that an honest investigator would be able to figure this out.

                            Guess who took over this investigation in 2002?

                            Bet you can’t guess.

                            None other than James Comey.

                            Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

                            Guess who was transferred in to the Internal Revenue Service to run the Tax Exemption Branch of the IRS?

                            Your friend and mine Lois “Be on The Look Out” (BOLO) Lerner.

                            Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

                            It gets better, well not really, but this is all just a series of strange coincidences, right?

                            Guess who ran the Tax Division inside the Department of Injustice from 2001 to 2005?

                            No other than the Assistant Attorney General of the United States, Rod Rosenstein.

                            Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

                            Guess who was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation during this time frame?

                            I know, it’s a miracle, just a coincidence, just an anomaly in statistics and chances, but it was Robert Mueller.

                            What do all four casting characters have in common?

                            They all were briefed and/or were front line investigators into the Clinton Foundation Investigation.

                            Now that’s just a coincidence, right?

                            Ok, lets chalk the last one up to mere chance.

                            Let’s fast forward to 2009......

                            James Comey leaves the Justice Department to go and cash-in at Lockheed Martin.

                            Hillary Clinton is running the State Department, on her own personal email server by the way.

                            The Uranium One “issue” comes to the attention of Hillary.

                            Like all good public servants do, you know looking out for America’s best interest, she decides to support the decision and approve the sale of 20% of US Uranium to no other than, the Russians.

                            Now you would think that this is a fairly straight up deal, except it wasn’t, the People got absolutely nothing out of it.

                            However, prior to the sales approval, no other than Bill Clinton goes to Moscow, gets paid 500K for a one hour speech then meets with Vladimir Putin at his home for a few hours.

                            Ok, no big deal right?

                            Well, not so fast, the FBI had a mole inside the money laundering and bribery scheme.

                            Guess who was the FBI Director during this time frame?

                            Yep, Robert Mueller.

                            He even delivered a Uranium Sample to Moscow in 2009.

                            Guess who was handling that case within the Justice Department out of the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland?

                            No other than, Rod Rosenstein.

                            Guess what happened to the informant?

                            The Department of Justice placed a GAG order on him and threatened to lock him up if he spoke out about it.

                            How does 20% of the most strategic asset of the United States of America end up in Russian hands when the FBI has an informant, a mole providing inside information to the FBI on the criminal enterprise?

                            Guess what happened soon after the sale was approved?

                            ~145 million dollars in “donations” made their way into the Clinton Foundation from entities directly connected to the Uranium One deal.

                            Guess who was still at the Internal Revenue Service working the Charitable Division?

                            No other than, Lois Lerner .

                            Ok, that’s all just another series of coincidences, nothing to see here, right?

                            Let’s fast forward to 2015.

                            Due to a series of tragic events in Benghazi and after the 9 “investigations” the House, Senate and at State Department, Trey Gowdy who was running the 10th investigation as Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi discovers that the Hillary ran the State Department on an unclassified, unauthorized, outlaw personal email server.

                            He also discovered that none of those emails had been turned over when she departed her “Public Service” as Secretary of State which was required by law.

                            He also discovered that there was Top Secret information contained within her personally archived email.

                            Sparing you the State Departments cover up, the nostrums they floated, the delay tactics that were employed and the outright lies that were spewed forth from the necks of the Kerry State Department, we shall leave it with this…… they did everything humanly possible to cover for Hillary.

                            Now this is amazing, guess who became FBI Director in 2013?

                            Guess who secured 17 no bid contracts for his employer (Lockheed Martin) with the State Department and was rewarded with a six million dollar thank you present when he departed his employer?

                            None other than James Comey.

                            Amazing how all those no-bids just went right through at State, huh?

                            Now he is the FBI Director in charge of the “Clinton Email Investigation” after of course his FBI Investigates the Lois Lerner “Matter” at the Internal Revenue Service and exonerates her.

                            Nope.... couldn’t find any crimes there.

                            Can you guess what happened next?

                            In April 2016, James Comey drafts an exoneration letter of Hillary Rodham Clinton, meanwhile the DOJ is handing out immunity deals like candy.

                            They didn’t even convene a Grand Jury.

                            Like a lightning bolt of statistical impossibility, like a miracle from God himself, like the true “Gangsta” Homey is, James steps out into the cameras of an awaiting press conference on July the 8th of 2016, and exonerates the Hillary from any wrongdoing.

                            Can you see the pattern?

                            It goes on and on, Rosenstein becomes Asst. Attorney General, Comey gets fired based upon a letter by Rosenstein, Comey leaks government information to the press, Mueller is assigned to the Russian Investigation sham by Rosenstein to provide cover for decades of malfeasance within the FBI and DOJ and the story continues.

                            FISA Abuse, political espionage..... pick a crime, any crime, chances are...... this group and a few others did it.

                            All the same players.

                            All compromised and conflicted.

                            All working fervently to NOT go to jail themselves.

                            All connected in one way or another to the Clinton's.

                            They are like battery acid, they corrode and corrupt everything they touch.

                            How many lives have these two destroyed?

                            As of this writing, the Clinton Foundation, in its 20+ years of operation of being the largest International Charity Fraud in the history of mankind, has never been audited by the Internal Revenue Service.

                            Let us not forget that Comey's brother works for DLA Piper, the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation's taxes.

                            And, See the person that is the common denominator to all the crimes above and still doing her evil escape legal maneuvers at the top of the 3 Letter USA Agencies? Yep, that would be Hillary R. Clinton.

                            WHO IS LISA BARSOOMIAN?

                            Let’s learn a little about Mrs. Lisa H. Barsoomian’s background.

                            Lisa H. Barsoomian, a US Attorney that graduated from Georgetown Law, is a protege of James Comey and Robert Mueller.

                            Barsoomian, with her boss R. Craig Lawrence, represented Bill Clinton in 1998.

                            Lawrence also represented:

                            Robert Mueller three times;

                            James Comey five times;

                            Barack Obama 45 times;

                            Kathleen Sebelius 56 times;

                            Bill Clinton 40 times; and

                            Hillary Clinton 17 times.

                            Between 1998 and 2017, Barsoomian herself represented the FBI at least five times.

                            You may be saying to yourself, OK, who cares? Who cares about the work history of this Barsoomian woman?

                            Apparently someone does, because someone out there cares so much that they’ve “purged” all Barsoomian court documents for her Clinton
                            representation in Hamburg vs. Clinton in 1998 and its appeal in 1999 from the DC District and Appeals Court dockets (?). Someone out there cares so much that the INTERNET has been “purged” of all information pertaining to Barsoomian.

                            Historically, this indicates that the individual is a protected CIA operative.

                            Additionally, Lisa Barsoomian has specialized in opposing Freedom of Information Act requests on behalf of the intelligence community.

                            And, although Barsoomian has been involved in hundreds of cases representing the DC Office of the US Attorney, her email address is Lisa Barsoomian at NIH gov. The NIH stands for National Institutes of Health.

                            This is a tactic routinely used by the CIA to protect an operative by using another government organization to shield their activities.

                            It’s a cover, so big deal right? I mean what does one more attorney with ties to the US intelligence community really matter?

                            It deals with Trump and his recent tariffs on Chinese steel and aluminum imports, the border wall, DACA, everything coming out of California, the Uni-party unrelenting opposition to President Trump, Clapper leaks, the Comey leaks, Attorney General Jeff Sessions recusal and subsequent 14 month nap with occasional forays into the marijuana legalization mix …. and last but not least Mueller’s never-ending investigation into collusion between the Trump team and the Russians.

                            Why does Barsoomian, CIA operative, merit any mention?

                            BECAUSE….

                            She is Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s WIFE….That’s why!!

                            GET THIS INFORMATION OUT AND MAYBE...........JUST MAYBE A FEW WILL LISTEN.......NOT MANY BUT A FEW LIKE ME WHO DON’T BELIEVE IN MORE THAN ONE COINCIDENCE AT A TIME IN THE SAME STORY

                                Amazon pulls out of plan to build New York City headquarters

                                "For Amazon, the commitment to build a new headquarters requires positive, collaborative relationships with state and local elected officials who will be supportive over the long-term. While polls show that 70% of New Yorkers support our plans and investment, a number of state and local politicians have made it clear that they oppose our presence and will not work with us to build the type of relationships that are required to go forward with the project we and many others envisioned in Long Island City,"


                                Another "win" for AOC.

                                  For the old and not-so-old . . .

                                  Led Zeppelin’s self-titled debut album turns 50 on Saturday

                                  This Saturday, January 12, marks the 50th anniversary of the release of Led Zeppelin‘s self-titled debut album, which introduced the world to arguably the most influential and beloved hard-rock band of all-time.



                                  Produced by Jimmy Page, the album was recorded in September and October at Olympic Studios in London, reportedly in just 36 hours and at a cost of less than 2,000 pounds. The nine-track collection features original tunes mixed with covers and reworked versions of contemporary blues and folk songs.

                                  After its initial release, Led Zeppelin peaked at #10 on the Billboard 200 and went on to sell more than eight million copies in the U.S.

                                  The Led Zeppelin album was poorly received in general by critics at the time of its release, with Rolling Stone panning the record. (Read the original review: Led Zeppelin I – Rolling Stone) The view of the album, of course, has been reassessed over the ensuing years. Case in point: On Rolling Stone‘s 2012 list of the 500 greatest albums of all time, it ranks at #29.

                                  Here’s the full track list of Led Zeppelin:

                                  “Good Times Bad Times”
                                  “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You”
                                  “You Shook Me”
                                  “Dazed and Confused”
                                  “Your Time Is Gonna Come”
                                  “Black Mountain Side” (instrumental)
                                  “Communication Breakdown”
                                  “I Can’t Quit You Baby”
                                  “How Many More Times”

                                        Florida takes on West Virginia tonight at 9-9:30 PM on ESPN in the Jimmy V Classic. WVU has a really tough and hard nosed defense. We better come out energized and firing on all cylinders

                                          Florida is on the road at Florida St. to begin the season Nov. 6 at 9 PM on ESPN2. Florida St. is ranked #17 and is a game White has struggled against since coming to Florida. Florida will need to play aggressive and extremely tough Tuesday night. Have to protect the ball and play sound defense.

                                          Projected Lineup:

                                          Nembhard
                                          Allen
                                          Hudson
                                          Stone
                                          Hayes

                                          This will be a huge test for freshman Nembhard's first collegiate game, on the road against a rival. We have to come play and play all 40 minutes. No relaxing or coasting.

                                          The season begins!!!!
