The ABF Classic Film Series: The Deer Hunter (1978) Thread

Recommended Posts

“The Gateway Pundit’s small role in Trump’s endeavor to weaponize the DOJ against the American electoral process underscores just how easily a discredited far-right media site established a pipeline to the decision-making of the then most powerful person on Earth.”

“It also shows how this one website… managed to play a part in fueling the efforts that brought the country to the brink of democratic rupture.”

“During the final weeks of his presidency, administration officials saw Trump on multiple occasions holding printed-out pages of Gateway Pundit articles in the White House, sometimes in the Oval Office. [A] former senior official recalled one instance when Trump handed them a page printed from the website, which nonsensically alleged massive pro-Biden fraud, and told the official to find out more and to do something about it.”

Hopefully Sidney Powell and company are next…

A federal judge in Colorado has sanctioned attorneys who brought a lawsuit that challenged the results of the 2020 presidential election and sought $160 billion in damages, calling their conspiratorial claims "the stuff of which violent insurrections are made."

The Wednesday ruling from US Magistrate Judge N. Reid Neureiter concludes that the lawsuit "was filed in bad faith" and orders the attorneys, Ernest J. Walker and Gary D. Fielder, to pay the opposing lawyers' expenses and fees. The order does not bar them from practicing law.

"This lawsuit was filed with a woeful lack of investigation into the law and (under the circumstances) the facts," Neureiter wrote. "The lawsuit put into or repeated into the public record highly inflammatory and damaging allegations that could have put individuals' safety in danger. Doing so without a valid legal basis or serious independent personal investigation into the facts was the height of recklessness."

Florida hospitals are struggling to get oxygen due to a rise in Covid-19 cases attributable to the delta variant and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s decision not to declare another state of emergency.

A shortage of drivers who are qualified to transport oxygen, as well as restrictions around how long truck drivers can be on the road—which went back into effect following the expiration of the public health emergency in the state—means that the supply isn’t getting to the hospitals that need it most.

There is “plenty of oxygen, just not in the right area,” Brig. Gen. David Sanford, director of the White House supply chain task force, said in an interview.

Ugh they gonna force a 40 year old Lebron to lead an All NBA team at the Paris Olympics to get our gold back at this rate like what happened after Athens and Seoul

Again I don't think this team should even be worth Bronze but for KD doing KD things. Really disappointed that Lillard just disappeared

Old as f**k Rapinoe is still the sh*t, it sorta sucks that the Fox News cinematic boomerverse whose never watched a soccer game in thier lives or even actually cares is going to faux outrage and make Rapinoe the face of why US wont take gold

This would be impressive if freaking Messi did it and its her signature move (and Twitter tells me hes never actually done an olympico in a real game I'll take thier word for it)

And she just scored again and it was yet another banger

Tucker broadcasting live from Hungary where is he hanging out with and praising an authoritarian Prime Minister, having Glenn to criticize a democrat who doesn’t currently hold the White House and both chambers of congress. You can’t make this **** up 


Again, it’s bad, out of touch, and hypocritical for the elite of any (and it seems more often than not democrats vs republicans) political persuasion to continue to publicly and openly flout Covid precautions, but it comes from a 1000% bad place with people like Tucker and Glem. 

It would nice if someone like Cuomo would have this conversation instead of privately advising his dirtbag brother on how to navigate dual scandals of killing old folks and sexually harassing any woman he sees.
