On Saturday, the greatest college football rivalry continues when #3 Michigan visits #2 Ohio State. In honor of the big game, we wanted to re-release an episode from 2017 that we did with Shemy Schembechler, the son of Hall of Fame Michigan football coach Bo Schembechler. He has a bunch of good stories to share, especially since he now lives in Columbus, Ohio. This was one of Jamy's first interviews but the insights and entertainment value still hold up today.  Enjoy! Original show notes are below ... Glenn “Shemy” Schembechler serves as the President of GES Advisory Company. Shemy has spent the majority of his life and professional career in the football industry, growing up as the son of legendary coach Glenn E. “Bo” Schembechler. He has evaluated talent for such high-level programs as the University of Michigan, the Kansas City Chiefs, the Chicago Bears, the Washington Redskins, and the Seattle Seahawks. In addition to his father, Shemy has studied under accomplished coaches Gary Moeller, Lloyd Carr, Marty Schottenheimer, and Joe Gibbs. They have all had an indelible impact on his career, and his ability to scout and recommend prospects. Shemy has been a part of many championship and playoff teams, and has been able to evaluate or recommend players that have gone on to Pro Bowl careers (Charles Woodson, Ian Gold and Tom Brady, respectively), as well as inductees into the Pro Football Hall of Fame (Joe Montana, Marcus Allen, and Derrick Thomas, respectively).

His three tenures with the Denver Broncos totaled 14 years and brought the city back to back Super Bowl Championships. Mike Shanahan's other 24 years of coaching had stops in Oklahoma, Eastern Illinois (D2 Championship), Northern Arizona, Minnesota, Florida, LA Raiders, San Francisco 49'ers (Super Bowl XXIX), and (then) Washington Redskins. In the college ranks, Mike moved up the ladder with ease. In the pros, he moved up through the years, however there were a few setbacks along the way with firings in LA, Denver and Washington. No matter how each stint ended, he gained perspective and learned at every stop in his career. Mike deservedly earned a spot in the Broncos Ring of Fame and should have a bust in Canton, Ohio. Hopefully someday.

This week's special guest star is 5-1 North Haven football coach Tony Sagnella who returns for a re-do of last year's interview that went unheard because Sean forgot to hit the record button. Coach Sags talk's about this year's resurgent team, which plays Cheshire this week as it fights for a Class MM playoff spot. The guys also talk to Sagnella about the genesis of North Haven's famous single wing and his time spent as an NFL replacement player for the Washington Redskins during the strike year of 1987.  Naturally, it's a longer-than-normal interview. But well worth it. As for last week, on the night where West Haven honored the 20th anniversary of their last state championship football team, the Westies of the present were busy earning their biggest victory to date: a 34-28 victory over then-No. 6 Shelton.  Sean talks about the game and interviews some of the key players from that great, 2002 Class LL title team, including Tom DeMorro and Phil Banks, who scored the winning TD, and coaches Bert Siclari and Ed McCarthy. The guys also break down the latest Top 10 poll, including No. 1 Southington's narrow win over Windsor and No. 8 Ansonia's nailbiting 31-28 victory over Holy Cross, and examine the six state playoff standings through seven weeks. So join us, won't you?

The 260 Journey
Can Christians Be Rich?

The 260 Journey

Day 196 Today's Reading: 1 Timothy 6 There's a word in the game of football that keeps enduring—Hut! An article in The New York Times pondered why this word keeps hanging around: It is easily the most audible word in any football game, a throaty grunt that may be the sport's most distinguishing sound. Hut! It starts almost every play, and often one is not enough. And in an increasingly complex game whose signal-calling has evolved into a cacophony of furtive code words—“Black Dirt!,” “Big Belly!,” “X Wiggle!”—hut, hut, hut endures as the signal to move. But why? . . . “I have no idea why we say hut,” said Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce. . . . “I guess because it's better than yelling, ‘Now,' or ‘Go.'” Joe Theismann, the former Washington Redskins quarterback . . . reckons he shouted “hut” more than 10,000 times during games and practices. . . . “I've been hutting my way through football for 55 years—but I have no clue why.” The article conjectures that “hut” may come from the military backgrounds of many early pro football players. But that's just a guess. This is similar to what Christians believe and why. Many people have been told what to believe without the why or the rationale behind that belief or doctrine. And it's been around so long, they don't have a clue about the explanation. The word doctrine means a set of beliefs or teachings from the Bible. Why do we believe what we believe? Or are we just saying hut, hut every Sunday and not knowing why? Will we get thousands of years into Christianity since the resurrection of Jesus and be asked why we say and do certain things and not have an answer? Fortunately, we learn some answers in today's chapter, where Paul tells us the why. Paul takes a thirty-thousand-foot view of doctrine. He talks about doctrinal diversions but gives us one big statement. Here are Paul's important words: "If anyone advocates a different doctrine and does not agree with sound words, those of our Lord Jesus Christ, and with the doctrine conforming to godliness, he is conceited and understands nothing; but he has a morbid interest in controversial questions and disputes about words, out of which arise envy, strife, abusive language, evil suspicions, and constant friction between men of depraved mind and deprived of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain." (1 Timothy 6:3-5)  There it is: the bombshell phrase, the thirty-thousand-foot view of why we believe: doctrine conforming us to godliness. To know if a belief system is true, the end result of our belief should make us godly, which means it should make us look more like Jesus. Religion tries to get us to look like the club, the people on Sundays and in the pew. The goal is not to look like Sunday people but to lift our eyes a lot higher to heaven. Our goal is not to look like the person in the pulpit but the One who sits on the throne of heaven. That's what doctrine is supposed to do. It conforms us to godliness. D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones said, “If your knowledge of doctrine does not make you a great man of prayer, you had better examine yourself again.” Paul wants to help us better understand how it plays out practically, so he offers the question “Can you be rich and a Christian?” as the test case. The answer is “yes, absolutely.” But Paul reminds us of some things in our lab work: "Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires which plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs." (Verses 9-10) Paul challenges not being rich, but the reason behind why we want to

As the Founder and President of Simbiotrek (sim-bē-ˈä-ˈtrek), Sean Kennedy wears many hats. Sean's roles include: transformation strategist and catalyst fractional COO for small- and medium-sized businesses small business peer advisory board coordinator and chair Sean works with entrepreneurs and business owners to unlock the potential trapped by the structure and capacity of their current business organization, and to build beautiful businesses together.   Sean has 20+ years of experience in software development. He's primarily concerned with Agile and Lean software, of which he is a practitioner, coach, strategist, and digital transformation leader. We delve into Sean's role in “digital transformation” and much more. Sean's clients range from: Multinationals to startups In the Americas to over in Europe and Asia Within the aerospace and automotive industry to industrial automation and insurance into health care, retail, technology, and telecommunications…he runs the gamut.   Tom Woods #TomWoods100 TomWoods.com TomSchoolofLife.com My goal is to get at least 100 people within the Tom Woods orbit on this show. We are building steady. Sean is the 5th person within Tom's orbit to come on the pod… First, if you don't know who Tom Woods is, you've probably been living under a rock, but Tom is a benefactor of mankind…and to my intelligence level. Check out TomWoods.com for a firehose worth of great content and then work your way to TomSchoolofLife.com. We need to keep the momentum going for this #TomWoods100 series. (And I apologize to Tom if I hijacked a hashtag he wanted &/or needed for another project…but I don't think so.) The point is—The O'Leary Review provides a platform for serious people to get the word out on what they are doing to make this world better. Also— our mission is to fight back against the crazy in this world. It exists all around us and we must eliminate it.   How I met Sean. I met Sean a few weeks back when he facilitated an accountability group within the Tom Woods School of Life that I am a part of.   “Blah blah blah…Austrian Economics…blah blah blah… I know nothing about that stuff.” Well, you should find out. And we provide a platform here—at least on the last few shows—where you can now jump on the Austrian train with relative ease. Over the last few podcasts, we've talked a bit about Austrian Economics and have provided resources in the various show notes. The following talk, however, is also worth your time if you have any inkling to discover more about why one should pursue Austrian Economics in even its basic forms. You'll likely discover that economics is indeed a field worth studying or exploring.  “The Attractiveness of Austrian Economics” by Tom Woods from July of 2013. https://youtu.be/DStLhWMRERM   More About Sean Lives in the Raleigh-Durham area after moving down from Toronto. Simbiotrek's office is in “Wake Forest.” Wake Forest, the town, is in the Raleigh-Durham area, also called the Research Triangle…not—as I found out doing a little cursory research—near Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. About a 2-hour car ride away! Notable son of Wake Forest: Bryce Love, former Stanford running back who had a phenomenal junior season at The Farm (Doak Walker Award, Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year, Unanimous All-American, etc.). Attended Wake Forest-Rolesville High School. Love had one great college season after backing up Christian McCaffrey for two seasons then got hurt his senior year, playing off-and-on. Got hurt again—ACL tear—in his final college game, but was eventually drafted by the Washington Redskins, yet dealt with more injury trouble and never ultimately played a regular season game in the NFL. Great ballplayer.   Sean's early days were spent in Winnipeg, Manitoba and Kitchener, Ontario, however, and not in the Research Triangle.   Sean's rooting interest in the CFL is for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. https://www.bluebombers.com/   A couple of other famous sons of Kitchener, Ontario: Lennox Lewis Former Heavyweight Champion of the World. Last heavyweight to hold the undisputed championship. Moved to Kitchener at the age of 12. 1988 Gold medal winner at the Seoul Olympics (representing Canada).   Jamal Murray Utah Jazz guard. Currently recovering from a devastating ACL tear that caused him to miss the entire 2021-22 NBA season. Interestingly, Murray's father, Roger, competed in basketball against Lennox Lewis when they were younger and before Lewis started his boxing career. Roger also coached Jamal for a season at Orangeville Prep prior to the younger Murray going on to Kentucky to play for the Wildcats and coach John Calipari in the 2015-16 season. Murray's 20.0 scoring average is the highest for any freshman in program history and the highest single-season average for any player under Calipari in his time in Lexington. .... I am still trying to research the Canadian high school football rules Sean played under during his prep days and why it became a such a strange mashup of the Canadian and the American gridiron codes. Wikipedia has a “Comparison of American and Canadian Football,” but it does not do justice to what we were talking about in this episode. But, if you are not familiar with the code of Canadian football, but know the American code well enough—or vice-versa—this examination is a good start…  ... Game mentioned: 100th Grey Cup November 25, 2012 at SkyDome/Rogers Centre in Toronto. Toronto Argonauts 35 — Calgary Stampeders 22 Attendance: 53,208 Halftime show included Canadians: Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepsen, Marianas Trench, and the ol' troubadour himself, Gordon Lightfoot.   Sean's Core Values The Golden Rule The Stockdale Paradox   Sean Kennedy is a youth hockey coach in North Carolina One of Sean's videos takes the lessons learned from a youth hockey tournament into entrepreneurship. https://wthtm.com/entrepreneurship-and-the-new-business/entrepreneurial-lessons-from-youth-hockey/547/ Read Sean's article and watch the video. He teaches lessons on how coaching translates to the business world. It struck me when Sean mentioned Carolina Hurricanes head coach Rod Brind'Amour was watching this tournament. I think it was 10U or 11U. One of Brind'Amour's sons was playing in the same tournament. It stood out because Brind'Amour was one of my favorite hockey players in the 1990s. I've never been a big Flyers fan, but I really liked his Flyers team of that era, where he was the second-line centre. Eric Lindros led the “Legion of Doom” line with John LeClair and Mikael Renberg as wingers. I almost exclusively used the Flyers when I played NHL96 on my computer…and I did that a lot at one stage of my life. In real life, that Flyers club made it to the Stanley Cup Finals in 1997 but were eventually swept by the Red Wings (who won the Cup for the first time in 42 years). In that video game, it was hard to choose which future NHL general manager to put in goal for Philly: Ron Hextall or Garth Snow. Coach Terry Murray had a similar problem…both were good tenders. Rod Brind'Amour https://www.hockey-reference.com/players/b/brindro01.html Brind'Amour is now the coach for the Carolina franchise. It surprised me when I looked up his stats that he played for Carolina for so long, too. Ten seasons for the Canes to 7 as a Flyer. “Rod Brind'Amour” is also one of the great names in sports. Hard to type at times but rolls of the tongue nicely.   Better Entrepreneurial Action Network https://beaction.net/ Developed by Simbiotrek with the support of Economics for Business, a project of the Mises Institute.   Economics for Business https://mises.org/library/economics-business I only heard about this in the last several days Mises Institute has such a vast catalog of material…   Econ4Business.com https://econ4business.com/ Building a business, managing a project, launching an innovation – these are journeys from your imagination to the marketplace and customer satisfaction.

Rep. Jim Banks was one of nearly a dozen members of the House Republican Study Committee who met Trump, 76, just a day after the shocking raid on his Florida estate. “He didn’t seem defeated in the least bit — he was very fired up, very upbeat,” Banks told Fox News of the ” great three-hour-long” chat at Trump’s New Jersey golf club, Bedminister. “He said we are going to like his decision and it is only a matter of time before he will make that decision known,” Banks told Fox News of Trump, who hours earlier released a campaign-style video promising that “the best is yet to come.” https://www.theepochtimes.com/trump-suggests-fbi-may-have-planted-evidence-during-mar-a-lago-raid_4655282.html?utm_source=partner&utm_campaign=BonginoReport Since we’re already talking about Trump, how about this: Trump Suggests FBI May Have ‘Planted’ Evidence During Mar-a-Lago Raid Former President Donald Trump suggested the FBI may have planted evidence during the bureau’s raid at his Mar-a-Lago home because members of his team were blocked from watching the agents. In a Truth Social post on Wednesday, the former president wrote that “the FBI and others from the Federal Government would not let anyone, including my lawyers, be anywhere near the areas that were rummaged and otherwise looked at during the raid on Mar-a-Lago.” “Everyone was asked to leave the premises, they wanted to be left alone, without any witnesses to see what they were doing, taking or, hopefully not, ‘planting.’ Why did they STRONGLY insist on having nobody watching them, everybody out?” said Trump. FBI agents spent about 10 hours scouring his private office on Monday and broke into his safe, according to Trump and members of his family. Bruce Reinhart, a Florida federal magistrate judge, signed off on a warrant to search the former president’s Florida property. Reinhart worked as a federal prosecutor until 2008 when he became a defense attorney representing employees of convicted sex trafficker and wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein. Employees included Epstein’s pilots, a scheduler, and others. The Epoch Times contacted the FBI for comment. Neither the bureau nor Attorney General Merrick Garland have offered public comments about the raid, drawing even questions and condemnation from Democrat politicians. Hey, speaking of those Jan. 6th hearings… https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/jan-6-hearings-public/2022/08/09/id/1082365/ Monmouth Poll: Jan. 6 Hearings Having Little Impact on Public The House Jan. 6 Select Committee hearings have done little to change people's opinions surrounding the 2021 Capitol attack, a new poll found. Regarding former President Donald Trump's culpability in the assault and claims of election fraud, public opinion stands pretty much as it was before testimony of former presidential aides during the last three public hearings, the latest Monmouth University poll found. Not only that, Trump's favorability rating is nearly identical to where it was immediately after the 2020 election. Also, 4 in 10 Americans would lean toward backing a comeback bid in 2024, according to the Monmouth Poll. Overall, just 8% of Americans said the hearings have changed their minds about the Capitol incident — basically unchanged from 6% who said the same in June. "When we released our June poll, I said the committee was preaching to the choir. These current results suggest they haven't recruited any new singers since then," said Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute. The survey found that 38% of respondents believe Trump was responsible directly for what happened on Jan. 6. That number stood at 42% right before the testimony of former Trump White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson. "The sensational revelations during the hearings do not seem to have moved the public opinion needle on Trump's culpability for either the riot or his spurious election fraud claims," Murray said. Only 41% — including 73% of Democrats — favor charging Trump with crimes related to his involvement on Jan. 6. A total of 34% — including 66% of Republicans — were opposed, and another 25% were unsure. A majority (61%) of Americans have at least a little trust the House committee is conducting a fair investigation, but there's a huge difference between Democrats (91%) and Republicans (35%). You see how crazy our culture is? This is why we need to train our kids up on the solid rock… amd a good place to do that for your college aged kids, is NSA: New Saint Andrews: Today’s culture shifts like sand. But New Saint Andrews College is established on Christ, the immovable rock. It is a premier institution that forges evangelical leaders who don’t fear or hate the world. Guided by God’s Word, they take the world back because they’re equipped with the genius of classical liberal arts and God-honoring wisdom, thanks to a faculty dedicated to academic rigor and to God’s kingdom.Find out more, at nsa.edu/ Some news on the Desantis front: https://freebeacon.com/democrats/top-desantis-challenger-paid-thousands-to-gen-z-liberal-activist-facing-campus-wide-allegations-of-sexual-assault/ Top DeSantis Challenger Paid Thousands to Gen Z Liberal Activist Facing ‘Campus-Wide Allegations of Sexual Assault’ On July 8, Democrat Charlie Crist's gubernatorial campaign paid $2,250 to Politically Correct Strategies—a consulting company registered to Gen Z liberal activist and former Dartmouth student Jack Cocchiarella—for "digital consulting." Just weeks later, on July 28, the prestigious school's College Democrats chapter revealed it ousted Cocchiarella from the club "in late October 2021, following campus-wide allegations of sexual assault." Those allegations emerged publicly in a string of December 2021 Reddit posts, which accused Cocchiarella of using "his Twitter notoriety and left-wing credentials to position himself as an ally. Then, once people let their guards down, he rapes them." Crist, who did not return repeated requests for comment, has remained silent on the accusations facing his campaign aide. By his own logic, that silence means he endorses Cocchiarella's alleged behavior—in a June 29 tweet, Crist pressed DeSantis to condemn the January 6 riots, writing, "Is it just me, or do you agree that his silence = endorsement?" Crist is not the only prominent Democrat to hire Cocchiarella following the troubling allegations. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's (R., Ga.) Democratic opponent, Marcus Flowers, has paid Cocchiarella's firm more than $40,000 since October 2021, when the activist announced his "new role" as Flowers's digital director. Flowers has his own alleged issues with women. In July 2016, the Democrat attempted to dump his ex-wife—Russian national Svetlana Chudinova—at a local homeless shelter, court documents reported by the New Republic show. Flowers did not dispute the incident and instead defended his attempt to offload Chudinova, saying he "felt she had a personality disorder that was not previously disclosed." In turn, Chudinova accused Flowers of threatening to strike her. Cocchiarella, whose Twitter account boasts more than 250,000 followers and includes a photo of the activist smiling alongside President Joe Biden, enrolled as a Dartmouth freshman during the 2021-22 school year. While it's unclear what specific "digital consulting" services he provided Crist, Cocchiarella publicly endorsed the former governor over fellow DeSantis challenger Nikki Fried (D.) just days after Crist's campaign paid him. Flowers, meanwhile, routinely replies to Cocchiarella's tweets to solicit campaign contributions. In October 2021, he called the young activist "an outstanding young man." In addition to his work with Crist and Flowers, Cocchiarella has collaborated with the Lincoln Project, an anti-Republican super PAC founded by disgraced sexual predator John Weaver. Cocchiarella during an Aug. 1 podcast appearance did, however, confirm his decision to transfer from Dartmouth to fellow Ivy League school Columbia. The activist did not discuss why he opted to leave Dartmouth after just one year at the college and is yet to publicly address the allegations leveled against him. Cocchiarella, Dartmouth College Democrats, and Dartmouth's Title IX office did not return requests for comment. Well isn’t that just nice? https://cbs6albany.com/news/local/legislation-to-change-the-term-inmate-for-those-in-the-prison-system Let’s shift our eyes back to the North East: Gov. Hochul signs legislation changing the term "inmate" for those in the prison system The word "inmate" is out in New York State Law, and that decision is getting a lot of attention. A top political analyst told me Tuesday that Governor Hochul's decision to substitute the term "incarcerated individuals" for inmates in state law is her way of trying to reconcile issues of justice with issues of safety. But Dr. Lee Miringoff says it's a delicate balancing act when her opponent Lee Zeldin is accusing her of not being tough enough on crime. Hochul's critics say she is once again putting the needs of the criminal ahead of the needs of the victim, while those who approve of the change say it gives the prison population a better chance at reintegrating into society. Melanie Trimble of the New York Civil Liberties Union says you can attribute the rise in crime--if there is one--to many factors, like the pandemic and an increase in gun sales. She says the language change helps to dignify--and humanize--people who have done their time. Dr. Miringoff of Marist College says the Governor has already chosen a clear path on the issue of crime by not bringing the legislature back to deal with bail reform, and he believes she's banking on this language change helping her with her base in November. Trimble argues that using inclusive language that makes those returning to society after a stint in prison feel comfortable is not a heavy lift, and one that will make a real difference in peoples lives. She said, "You know, we love to label people, and this is a community that is extremely vulnerable. We need to provide them with as many possibilities and hopeful futures as possible." Let’s shift things to the topic that I love… sports! Let’s talk Baseball today: https://www.boundingintosports.com/2022/08/after-abandoning-their-heritage-and-name-the-cleveland-guardians-attendance-tanks/ This is for you Mark Dewey: After Abandoning Their Heritage And Name, The Cleveland Guardians’ Attendance Tanks Last year, in an attempt to appease woke liberals, the Cleveland Indians changed their name to the Cleveland Guardians after previously announcing their intent to drop the Indians name in 2020. The team released a statement announcing their decision, “The Cleveland Indians today announced our decision to begin the process of changing from our team name ‘Indians.'” “Since July, we have conducted an extensive process to learn how our team name affected different constituencies and whether it aligned with our organizational values,” the organization explained. “As a result of that process, we have decided to move forward with changing the current team name and determining a new, non-Native American based name for the franchise.” They further detailed, “In our statement in June 2020, we acknowledged the importance of taking a leadership role in diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts across the community and enhancing our support for underserved and under-represented groups. As part of that commitment, we heard from individuals and groups who shared a variety of views and opinions on the issue. Their efforts to bring people together have apparently failed as they’ve brought about 6,000 fewer people together per game. Average attendance has dropped to 15,636 fans a game this year according to Baseball Reference. A steep decline from their 21,465 average attendance in 2019, the most recent year not affected by Covid hysteria. Albeit attendance is up from 2021 where average attendance was only 13,758. Tv ratings have also fallen by 30 percent according to Forbes. This is not the result of fans not showing up because the team is tanking like in Oakland. Cleveland is only a game back of the division lead, right in the middle of the playoff hunt. Cleveland is a small market team that is already short on cash in comparison to bigger market teams like New York, LA, and Boston. The loss of revenue from lower ticket sales only exasperates this problem. The team attempted to satisfy the demands of a group of people, woke liberals, that don’t represent their fanbase and now they’re paying the price. The Venn diagram of people offended by their previous name and fans of the team itself may as well be two distinct circles. The Guardians are not the first team to come under attack for a politically incorrect name. In 2020 the Washington Redskins changed their name to the Washington Football Team before settling on the only slightly less generic “Washington Commanders” a year later. Washington caved in the face of immense pressure by members of the media who claimed their 80 year old name was a racist slur. Interestingly enough, the Washington Post ran a poll about the term Redskin, and found that 9 out of 10 native Americans didn’t find the term ‘Redskin’ offensive back in 2016… Huh! Not every team felt compelled to give in to the demands of the woke mob. The Chicago Blackhawks of the NHL came under similar pressure to change their Native American themed name and logo. Instead of throwing away decades of team history and tradition to switch to a soulless new moniker that their fans would have no connection to, they simply said no. Deciding instead to use the notoriety created by their use of the Blackhawk name to honor Native American culture. “We celebrate Black Hawk’s legacy by offering ongoing reverent examples of Native American culture, traditions and contributions, providing a platform for genuine dialogue with local and national Native American groups,” the team continued. “As the team’s popularity grew over the past decade, so did that platform and our work with these important organizations.” Hopefully, this latest iteration of the “get woke go broke” phenomenon will teach teams that the silent majority in America are the ones that pay their bills not the perpetually offended minority.

Just weeks later, on July 28, the prestigious school's College Democrats chapter revealed it ousted Cocchiarella from the club "in late October 2021, following campus-wide allegations of sexual assault." Those allegations emerged publicly in a string of December 2021 Reddit posts, which accused Cocchiarella of using "his Twitter notoriety and left-wing credentials to position himself as an ally. Then, once people let their guards down, he rapes them." Crist, who did not return repeated requests for comment, has remained silent on the accusations facing his campaign aide. By his own logic, that silence means he endorses Cocchiarella's alleged behavior—in a June 29 tweet, Crist pressed DeSantis to condemn the January 6 riots, writing, "Is it just me, or do you agree that his silence = endorsement?" Crist is not the only prominent Democrat to hire Cocchiarella following the troubling allegations. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's (R., Ga.) Democratic opponent, Marcus Flowers, has paid Cocchiarella's firm more than $40,000 since October 2021, when the activist announced his "new role" as Flowers's digital director. Flowers has his own alleged issues with women. In July 2016, the Democrat attempted to dump his ex-wife—Russian national Svetlana Chudinova—at a local homeless shelter, court documents reported by the New Republic show. Flowers did not dispute the incident and instead defended his attempt to offload Chudinova, saying he "felt she had a personality disorder that was not previously disclosed." In turn, Chudinova accused Flowers of threatening to strike her. Cocchiarella, whose Twitter account boasts more than 250,000 followers and includes a photo of the activist smiling alongside President Joe Biden, enrolled as a Dartmouth freshman during the 2021-22 school year. While it's unclear what specific "digital consulting" services he provided Crist, Cocchiarella publicly endorsed the former governor over fellow DeSantis challenger Nikki Fried (D.) just days after Crist's campaign paid him. Flowers, meanwhile, routinely replies to Cocchiarella's tweets to solicit campaign contributions. In October 2021, he called the young activist "an outstanding young man." In addition to his work with Crist and Flowers, Cocchiarella has collaborated with the Lincoln Project, an anti-Republican super PAC founded by disgraced sexual predator John Weaver. Cocchiarella during an Aug. 1 podcast appearance did, however, confirm his decision to transfer from Dartmouth to fellow Ivy League school Columbia. The activist did not discuss why he opted to leave Dartmouth after just one year at the college and is yet to publicly address the allegations leveled against him. Cocchiarella, Dartmouth College Democrats, and Dartmouth's Title IX office did not return requests for comment. Well isn’t that just nice? https://cbs6albany.com/news/local/legislation-to-change-the-term-inmate-for-those-in-the-prison-system Let’s shift our eyes back to the North East: Gov. Hochul signs legislation changing the term "inmate" for those in the prison system The word "inmate" is out in New York State Law, and that decision is getting a lot of attention. A top political analyst told me Tuesday that Governor Hochul's decision to substitute the term "incarcerated individuals" for inmates in state law is her way of trying to reconcile issues of justice with issues of safety. But Dr. Lee Miringoff says it's a delicate balancing act when her opponent Lee Zeldin is accusing her of not being tough enough on crime. Hochul's critics say she is once again putting the needs of the criminal ahead of the needs of the victim, while those who approve of the change say it gives the prison population a better chance at reintegrating into society. Melanie Trimble of the New York Civil Liberties Union says you can attribute the rise in crime--if there is one--to many factors, like the pandemic and an increase in gun sales. She says the language change helps to dignify--and humanize--people who have done their time. Dr. Miringoff of Marist College says the Governor has already chosen a clear path on the issue of crime by not bringing the legislature back to deal with bail reform, and he believes she's banking on this language change helping her with her base in November. Trimble argues that using inclusive language that makes those returning to society after a stint in prison feel comfortable is not a heavy lift, and one that will make a real difference in peoples lives. She said, "You know, we love to label people, and this is a community that is extremely vulnerable. We need to provide them with as many possibilities and hopeful futures as possible." Let’s shift things to the topic that I love… sports! Let’s talk Baseball today: https://www.boundingintosports.com/2022/08/after-abandoning-their-heritage-and-name-the-cleveland-guardians-attendance-tanks/ This is for you Mark Dewey: After Abandoning Their Heritage And Name, The Cleveland Guardians’ Attendance Tanks Last year, in an attempt to appease woke liberals, the Cleveland Indians changed their name to the Cleveland Guardians after previously announcing their intent to drop the Indians name in 2020. The team released a statement announcing their decision, “The Cleveland Indians today announced our decision to begin the process of changing from our team name ‘Indians.'” “Since July, we have conducted an extensive process to learn how our team name affected different constituencies and whether it aligned with our organizational values,” the organization explained. “As a result of that process, we have decided to move forward with changing the current team name and determining a new, non-Native American based name for the franchise.” They further detailed, “In our statement in June 2020, we acknowledged the importance of taking a leadership role in diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts across the community and enhancing our support for underserved and under-represented groups. As part of that commitment, we heard from individuals and groups who shared a variety of views and opinions on the issue. Their efforts to bring people together have apparently failed as they’ve brought about 6,000 fewer people together per game. Average attendance has dropped to 15,636 fans a game this year according to Baseball Reference. A steep decline from their 21,465 average attendance in 2019, the most recent year not affected by Covid hysteria. Albeit attendance is up from 2021 where average attendance was only 13,758. Tv ratings have also fallen by 30 percent according to Forbes. This is not the result of fans not showing up because the team is tanking like in Oakland. Cleveland is only a game back of the division lead, right in the middle of the playoff hunt. Cleveland is a small market team that is already short on cash in comparison to bigger market teams like New York, LA, and Boston. The loss of revenue from lower ticket sales only exasperates this problem. The team attempted to satisfy the demands of a group of people, woke liberals, that don’t represent their fanbase and now they’re paying the price. The Venn diagram of people offended by their previous name and fans of the team itself may as well be two distinct circles. The Guardians are not the first team to come under attack for a politically incorrect name. In 2020 the Washington Redskins changed their name to the Washington Football Team before settling on the only slightly less generic “Washington Commanders” a year later. Washington caved in the face of immense pressure by members of the media who claimed their 80 year old name was a racist slur. Interestingly enough, the Washington Post ran a poll about the term Redskin, and found that 9 out of 10 native Americans didn’t find the term ‘Redskin’ offensive back in 2016… Huh! Not every team felt compelled to give in to the demands of the woke mob. The Chicago Blackhawks of the NHL came under similar pressure to change their Native American themed name and logo. Instead of throwing away decades of team history and tradition to switch to a soulless new moniker that their fans would have no connection to, they simply said no. Deciding instead to use the notoriety created by their use of the Blackhawk name to honor Native American culture. “We celebrate Black Hawk’s legacy by offering ongoing reverent examples of Native American culture, traditions and contributions, providing a platform for genuine dialogue with local and national Native American groups,” the team continued. “As the team’s popularity grew over the past decade, so did that platform and our work with these important organizations.” Hopefully, this latest iteration of the “get woke go broke” phenomenon will teach teams that the silent majority in America are the ones that pay their bills not the perpetually offended minority.

Rep. Jim Banks was one of nearly a dozen members of the House Republican Study Committee who met Trump, 76, just a day after the shocking raid on his Florida estate. “He didn’t seem defeated in the least bit — he was very fired up, very upbeat,” Banks told Fox News of the ” great three-hour-long” chat at Trump’s New Jersey golf club, Bedminister. “He said we are going to like his decision and it is only a matter of time before he will make that decision known,” Banks told Fox News of Trump, who hours earlier released a campaign-style video promising that “the best is yet to come.” https://www.theepochtimes.com/trump-suggests-fbi-may-have-planted-evidence-during-mar-a-lago-raid_4655282.html?utm_source=partner&utm_campaign=BonginoReport Since we’re already talking about Trump, how about this: Trump Suggests FBI May Have ‘Planted’ Evidence During Mar-a-Lago Raid Former President Donald Trump suggested the FBI may have planted evidence during the bureau’s raid at his Mar-a-Lago home because members of his team were blocked from watching the agents. In a Truth Social post on Wednesday, the former president wrote that “the FBI and others from the Federal Government would not let anyone, including my lawyers, be anywhere near the areas that were rummaged and otherwise looked at during the raid on Mar-a-Lago.” “Everyone was asked to leave the premises, they wanted to be left alone, without any witnesses to see what they were doing, taking or, hopefully not, ‘planting.’ Why did they STRONGLY insist on having nobody watching them, everybody out?” said Trump. FBI agents spent about 10 hours scouring his private office on Monday and broke into his safe, according to Trump and members of his family. Bruce Reinhart, a Florida federal magistrate judge, signed off on a warrant to search the former president’s Florida property. Reinhart worked as a federal prosecutor until 2008 when he became a defense attorney representing employees of convicted sex trafficker and wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein. Employees included Epstein’s pilots, a scheduler, and others. The Epoch Times contacted the FBI for comment. Neither the bureau nor Attorney General Merrick Garland have offered public comments about the raid, drawing even questions and condemnation from Democrat politicians. Hey, speaking of those Jan. 6th hearings… https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/jan-6-hearings-public/2022/08/09/id/1082365/ Monmouth Poll: Jan. 6 Hearings Having Little Impact on Public The House Jan. 6 Select Committee hearings have done little to change people's opinions surrounding the 2021 Capitol attack, a new poll found. Regarding former President Donald Trump's culpability in the assault and claims of election fraud, public opinion stands pretty much as it was before testimony of former presidential aides during the last three public hearings, the latest Monmouth University poll found. Not only that, Trump's favorability rating is nearly identical to where it was immediately after the 2020 election. Also, 4 in 10 Americans would lean toward backing a comeback bid in 2024, according to the Monmouth Poll. Overall, just 8% of Americans said the hearings have changed their minds about the Capitol incident — basically unchanged from 6% who said the same in June. "When we released our June poll, I said the committee was preaching to the choir. These current results suggest they haven't recruited any new singers since then," said Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute. The survey found that 38% of respondents believe Trump was responsible directly for what happened on Jan. 6. That number stood at 42% right before the testimony of former Trump White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson. "The sensational revelations during the hearings do not seem to have moved the public opinion needle on Trump's culpability for either the riot or his spurious election fraud claims," Murray said. Only 41% — including 73% of Democrats — favor charging Trump with crimes related to his involvement on Jan. 6. A total of 34% — including 66% of Republicans — were opposed, and another 25% were unsure. A majority (61%) of Americans have at least a little trust the House committee is conducting a fair investigation, but there's a huge difference between Democrats (91%) and Republicans (35%).
