    Ireland’s Monday morning quarterbacks, or in Conor Murray’s case half-backs, are out in force today dragooned by the IRFU vent’s dummy Gerry Thornley in the IT.
    Yes we lost the match but we were less worse than in previous defeats to England seems to be the agreed message.
    Indeed from his vantage point of warming the bench for most of the game Conor Murray was convinced Ireland were not far off the mark.
    ” They didn’t have to work as hard for their scores as we did for our opportunities ” says Murray, who after 90 caps appears to have only just discovered the difference between winning and losing.
    Andy Farrell has been in charge for a year now and I wonder if it’s beginning to dawn on the suits that there’s a reason why, throughout his managerial career, he’s always been the oily rag and not the engine driver.
    Ireland are going backwards, especially now the three year residency rule has been extended to five.
    I wonder how many will make next year’s Lions tour.On Saturday’s showing I’d say they’ll only need a minicab to the airport to catch the flight.

    Slanderin’ Sidney Powell got the heave-ho last night for her ‘too crazy even for Trump’ routine over the weekend. Was that the kraken released?

    1. Twiddley Thumbs

      Get real Rosie, she was never more than a lamb to the slaughter.
      The tremor in her voice betrayed her, coupled with her lack of facts.

      She’s a distraction tactic.
      Look elsewhere.

        Just wait, pretty soon they will open the clown cupboard and another christian lawyer freak will fall out, incanting brainwashed, Trumpist, idiotic dialogue.

        1. scottser

          please be wary of words like ‘trumpist’ and ‘trumpism’. don’t allow that asshat to become a philosophy, or let his legacy live on longer than it should.

          1. Junkface

            I think that has already happened, unfortunately. Here’s a good report on how lethal Trumps lies have been in South Dakota, USA. People are dying of covid 19 in their beds, and they are telling the nurses that they still don’t believe covid 19 is real! Unbelievable and quite sad. Sure sign of cult behaviour too, the delusions.


            Just like his lies are getting his supporters killed in hospitals, the lies about election fraud could lead to violence and shootings. We are talking about cult followers in their millions, who now believe the election they voted in was stolen. Crazy.

    2. ReproBertie

      Does this mean Trump’s legal team no longer believe that the Republican governor of Georgia, a Trump ally, took a bribe to allow the voting machines that Hugo Chavez had the CIA build for him be used to switch votes from Trump to Biden?

      Statement from Sidney Powell

      “I agree with the campaign’s statement that I am not part of the campaign’s legal team. I never signed a retainer agreement or sent the President or the campaign a bill for my expenses or fees.

      My intent has always been to expose all the fraud I could find and let the chips fall where they may–whether it be upon Republicans or Democrats.

      The evidence I’m compiling is overwhelming that this software tool was used to shift millions of votes from President Trump and other Republican candidates to Biden and other Democrat candidates. We are proceeding to prepare our lawsuit and plan to file it this week. It will be epic.”

        Dominion has bought off both Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis, and just when the plot was about to be unraveled….

      2. Junkface

        She’s working for free now. Trump will never pay her, he usually skips out on his bills.

        This woman is pathetic, one of the worst Trump ass kissing lackeys yet. All of this is riling up Qanon zombies and nutty militia’s for a massive letdown when they have to realise that Trump lost. Will they begin shooting people? Who knows. This will all have consequences besides wrecking the publics confidence in democracy. Trump is also just using this to raise money for himself before he leaves, like a conman would.

      3. Rosette of Sirius

        “I look forward to Mayor Giuliani spearheading the legal effort to defend OUR RIGHT to FREE and FAIR ELECTIONS! Rudy Giuliani, Joseph diGenova, Victoria Toensing, Sidney Powell, and Jenna Ellis, a truly great team, added to our other wonderful lawyers and representatives!”

        Who tweeted that on Nov 14.

        So she was never part of the team that Trump said she was part of. Riiiight….. I mean, how on earth can you buy into this bullpoo?

          1. johnny

            …its delicious watching scumbag Kemp get damaged beyond repair,eaten by his own,hes a filthy corrupt racist who should be in jail not buckhead.

            “Brian Kemp, who billed himself as a “Trump conservative,” refused to step aside as Georgia’s secretary of state; he ran for governor of a state while overseeing the elections in that state. ”

            Stacy should send over the decorators,he’s a illegitimate caretaker not a governor.


          2. Nigel

            Such an openly corrupt thing to do, but I’ve seen people argue that Democrats complaining about that are the equivalent of what Republicans are doing now.

          3. johnny

            cowards and traitors- Bernstein and he’s far from alone.

            “The 21 GOP Senators who have privately expressed their disdain for Trump are: Portman, Alexander, Sasse, Blunt, Collins, Murkowski, Cornyn, Thune, Romney, Braun, Young, Tim Scott, Rick Scott, Rubio, Grassley, Burr, Toomey, McSally, Moran, Roberts, Shelby.
            With few exceptions, their craven public silence has helped enable Trump’s most grievous conduct—including undermining and discrediting the US the electoral system”
            Carl B.

            GA two seats and senate very much in play with Sid claiming Kelly and Dominion stole a republican seat…… extremely troubling and challenging senate races in two years for R’s -tick tock.

            The covid is leading to reports of full ICU’s units again,bodies in corridors, shortages in staff,its thanksgiving week here,advised not travel,people are very tired of all this.


    4. v AKA Frilly Keane


      I’d say she asked for equal pay with Rudy Giuliani (US$20k per day btw)
      and the GOP Trumpits did a who the hell does this ‘wan think she is

      more like

      Even her statement there ta Same’oh
      alludes to fees & expenses

      1. Nigel

        She went after a Trump ally Republican governor because she’s true Q, and they will savagely turn on anyone who gets in their way or disagrees with them slightly, and since Team Trump is exactly the same, under the bus she went, bizarrely creating a Q martyr, now working outside the system ‘for the people.’ I wish someone would explain to me again how the real problem in US politics is people supporting trans rights, I keep forgetting why.

        1. v AKA Frilly Keane

          now working outside the system ‘for the people.’

          now that’s a fundraiser

          in the meantime,
          In all fairness like
          could you not have let the ‘equal pay’ thing run for bit

          1. SOQ

            Well, if what Powell is claiming is true- that they have evidence of fraud, then it is very much a case of wait and see.

            The decision to politically separate from Trump may be a strategic one, especially if there are Republicans implicated in whatever she is claiming.

            Either way, we won’t have long to wait by the sounds of it.

          2. Nigel

            You keep saying ‘wait and see,’ and yet….
            She has no evidence. None. Not a scrap. Not a stitch. Not an iota. There’s no strategy. She’s Qanon. They lie about what they know and what evidence they have and what is coming that can’t be stopped all the time. it’s the primary characteristic of Qanon, and Trump.

          3. v AKA Frilly Keane

            I have no doubt Sidney Powell has evidence of Voter Fraud tbh
            from each district as well

            she only needs one lad that used someone else’s ballot
            to say there was Voter Fraud
            or one ballot that was a spoiled vote and shouldn’t have been counted
            to say there was Voter Fraud
            One diseased person’s ballot that was cast
            to say there was Voter Fraud
            One counted in the wrong bundle or posted into the wrong box
            to say there was Voter Fraud

            but to change the result
            Trump needs to find millions of these strayed votes

            and there won’t be more than a 100, 000
            and I’m pretty sure I’m greatly exaggerating anyway

            Neither here nor there, but Sidney Powell just needs ONE dodgy ballot to be correct
            And being witness to many counts myself
            I’m certain she has evidence – even if it was simple human error
            like a bundle of a 100 ballots being put into the wrong pigeon hole

            I reckon Rudy took a snot on with her myself

            in the meantime, in Pennsylvania, a GOP nominated Judge with NRA and Federalist Society connections,
            Judge Brann, had this to accompany his decision,
            In this action, the Trump Campaign and the Individual Plaintiffs seek to discard millions of votes legally cast by Pennsylvanians from all corners – from Greene County to Pike County, and everywhere in between. In other words, Plaintiffs ask this Court to disenfranchise almost seven million voters…One might expect that when seeking such a startling outcome, a plaintiff would come formidably armed with compelling legal arguments and factual proof of rampant corruption, such that this Court would have no option but to regrettably grant the proposed injunctive relief despite the impact it would have on such a large group of citizens. That has not happened. Instead, this Court has been presented with strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations, unpled in the operative complaint and unsupported by evidence. In the United States of America, this cannot justify the disenfranchisement of a single voter, let alone all the voters of its sixth most populated state. Our people, laws, and institutions demand more.

            The emphasise is mine btw,
            Since its we could do with remembering ourselves here

            Sorry for the long post btw, and all that’s left to say is that
            it was Rudy Giuliani himself that argued in front of Judge Brann
            Not Sidney Powell, or anyone else listed by the Trump legal team
            Just Rudy
            20k a day huh?

          4. Nigel

            As to that, there have been examples of dodgy ballots and fraudulent voting – a handful, and all for Trump.

          5. SOQ

            Well V I know you do be involved in the election counts here in Ireland so you are way more qualified than most of us to comment but- my game is IT and that is what Powell appears to be focusing on.

            My gut is telling me that they have something on the software. And if it is that case that (illegal?) vote transfer was a feature to be sold, that wouldn’t be hard. I just find it hard to believe her claims about Dominion are all bluff is all- their goal is to get into The Supreme court.

            Speaking of which, I have read somewhere that the Supreme Court has taken control of circuit courts in swing states? If that is true then they are gearing up for something big- I’ll try and dig out the link.

          6. Nigel

            Pretty sure if such evidence existed Trump’s cases wouldn’t be getting consistantly roasted to a crisp in court.

          7. V AKA Frilly Keane

            I won’t disagree with you there
            I’m very uncomfortable myself about this whole Dominion Smartarse Voting Machines thing

            I actually put it down to my own grá
            And pride, it must be said
            for the Irish Count process

            I know I said I agreed with Lou Dobbs the other day
            – about the American Voter needing to know who the feck it is that takes their vote and counts them etc
            And I still am of that view

            But I can’t deny I am biased about the use of voting machines and voting software

            The reality is this tho’
            Trump needs to find millions of votes incorrectly added to his opponent’s tally
            Millions of votes that Joe Biden isn’t entitled to

            And if a major fraud has taken place – then he and the GOP need a whole lot better than Rudy Guliani to get it done for them
            And ye all know it

      At what stage did she realize that she she should be leading by example? After the story broke.
      The projection of her ‘holier than thou’ air has taken quite a hit. No longer will she be taken seriously by the viewers, or for that matter the interviewees.
      It must have been right kick in the nether regions when they were instructed to read apologies that weren’t even prepared by themselves. How the mighty have fallen.

        Miriam over the last few weeks of Primetime has been quite critical of the handling of the Covid-19 situation. They’ve had plenty of pro-sensible response to Covid people on recently.

        Whether that’s the shows producer or herself making those choices who knows?

        Can see RTÉ using this situation to that speech down completely.

    2. Cian

      While the RTÉ ‘stars’ have been (rightly) castigated – what about whoever organized the party? Who organized it? and will they be punished?

    1. ian-oh

      I’ve a tendency to dismiss modern poets by virtue of the fact that a lot of them produce stuff that sounds like a marketing application picked out keywords and attached a weighted score upon them based on emotional response, sentimentality etc.

      But then stuff like this comes along.

      Simply wonderful and what poetry can and should be – real, honest and thought provoking.

      Good spot BB, thank you.

    Amidst all the noise a quiet triumph for Donald Trump’s Middle East foreign policy.

    BEIRUT, Lebanon — Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel flew to Saudi Arabia for a covert meeting Sunday night with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, an Israeli cabinet minister confirmed on Monday.

    The visit was the first known meeting between high-level Israeli and Saudi leaders and could signal an acceleration of gradually warming relations between the two powers.

    the irish built America,FFS now we have rely on the kindness of strangers to house our people,what a utter shambles of a govt,how embarrassing couple loser tech bro’s now housing our people,shameful stuff.

    “Google struck a deal with Nama to buy the three landmark buildings then known as Bolands Quay in 2018 in a deal worth about €300 million, and later obtained permission to construct a bridge to link two of the office towers. The development includes 28,000sq m of office space, 46 apartments, cafes and cultural space. Bolands Mills will also include 40,000sq ft of publicly accessible mixed-use space, with retail, recreation and dining aspects, and a dedicated 5,000sq ft community and cultural space.”


    i think they feel guilty over stealing these from the irish people,maybe they give us a nicle little park with a few mangy tress and the local dopes can call it the earls park.

    sinking ship.
    “A Judenrat[a] (German: [ˈjuːdn̩ˌʁaːt], “Jewish council”) was a World War II administrative agency imposed by Nazi Germany on Jewish communities across occupied Europe, principally within the Nazi ghettos. The Germans required Jews to form a Judenrat in every community across the occupied territories.”

    rats fleeing.

    no stranger Ireland just defaulted on his mortgage payments at blanch,its in foeclosure.

    “Trump’s top aides have undisguised contempt for some establishment business groups. But not Schwarzman. He has been a close confidant of Trump’s throughout his presidency.”
