Thirty-nine years ago today, the Sex Pistols released their only studio album, Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols.
I wanted to vote for a principled conservative for president. And I will. Writing in @Evan_McMullin on Nov. 8— Real Charlie Sykes (@SykesCharlie) October 27, 2016
In other words, Sykes is voting for Hillary Clinton to be president of the United States.
Actions have consequences. The consequence of voting for anyone other than the Republican nominee means support for Hillary's effort to become president.
That's the way this works. That is undeniable.
There is absolutely nothing principled about helping her win.
Right. We do have the chance, but the Never Trump people/Establishment Republicans are doing everything they can to let it crash and burn.
They're actively helping to elect Hillary Clinton and hand the Senate and perhaps the House to the Democrats.
Yeah, that will put us on the right path.

I was alerted to this story when listening to Mark Belling this afternoon.
Once again, the Milwaukee Bucks have shown a lack of respect for the community, law enforcement, and the military.
At the game on October 26, 2016, a guy singing the national anthem plastered his guitar with "Black Lives Matter" lettering, while the color guard, including police officers, stood by.
Here's the photo from the Milwaukee Bucks official website:
According to Belling, the photo was on the home page of the Bucks site earlier today. Now, it can be found in a photo gallery on the site.
NOTE: The photo is no longer included in the gallery on the Bucks site. Here's what the Bucks are using as an image for the national anthem:
This photo was originally included in the gallery, along with the BLM protest image, the one chosen by the Bucks for their home page.
Clearly, the Bucks endorsed the Black Lives Matter protest or they wouldn't have put the guy's photo front and center in the first place.
The Bucks permitted the game to become a forum for an anti-police protest, something they continued to support on the website the following day.
I suppose this should come as no surprise given the views of Milwaukee Bucks president Peter Feigin.
“Very bluntly, Milwaukee is the most segregated, racist place I’ve ever experienced in my life," Feigin was quoted as saying. "It just is a place that is antiquated. It is in desperate need of repair and has happened for a long, long time. One of our messages and one of our goals is to lead by example.”
Is this protest during our national anthem what Feigin considers "leading by example"?
I guess it is. The racists in Milwaukee need a little in-your-face awareness raising. Apparently, dissing the police is one of the Bucks' messages.
And my tax dollars are supporting their new arena?
The Bucks need to issue an unequivocal apology to the community, particularly law enforcement.
Chris Porterfield brings Black Lives Matter message to center court at Bucks opener
Milwaukee Record: In today’s climate, that took some bravery to make such a statement while performing the anthem. Did you give the Bucks a heads-up ahead of time?
Christopher Porterfield: The Bucks did not know ahead of time, but I did intentionally show up at soundcheck in the afternoon with that guitar and that sweatshirt. No one said anything to me, one way or the other. Even after it was over, no one from the Bucks organization said anything. But they deserve thanks and praise and respect for allowing me to express the message.
The Bucks claim they didn't know about the protest, but Porterfield describes a situation in which they did, saying he intentionally showed up at the soundcheck "with that guitar and that sweatshirt."
Someone is being deceptive here.
Given the public's reaction, the Bucks would have more incentive to attempt to rewrite the truth in this situation.
Yesterday, Mark Levin had Sen. Ron Johnson on his radio program.
Levin stressed how radical Johnson's opponent, the former Sen. Russ Feingold, really is. He called Feingold a "radical Alinsky ideologue" and a "radical kook."
MARK LEVIN: Wisconsin, listen to me, the Cheeseheads out there, and I'm lactose intolerant. I know what I'm talking about. We don't want Russ Feingold back in the Senate. Pretty please.
Although Levin has been critical of Ron Johnson in the past, Levin endorsed him.
After the interview and a commercial break, Levin made his support clear.
MARK LEVIN: One little thing I forgot to mention in my interview with Sen. Johnson was I'm endorsing him for reelection. And I believe that Russ Feingold -- we have a past, Feingold and I. My buddy, Don from Lake Ronkonkoma, reminded me I used to call him Russ Fool's Gold, and will continue to do that. So, we need to defeat Russ Fool's Gold. He is a radical Leftist. He is among the worst, a radical Leftist. And so, I'm endorsing Ron Johnson. And I hope for the best.
Levin obviously understands how important the Wisconsin race is in Election 2016.
The Republicans need to hold on to the Senate.
Wisconsinites need to do the country a favor and keep Feingold out of the U.S. Senate.
Have you seen the ad touting Russ Feingold as the champion of pets and other animals?
Read the full press release announcing the ad.
The Humane Society Legislative Fund, the nation’s leading political advocacy organization for animal welfare, announces the launch of a new television ad campaign in Wisconsin supporting Russ Feingold for U.S. Senate. The ads, which begin airing in the Milwaukee and Madison media markets on Tuesday, October 25, are aimed at informing voters of Feingold’s established history of support for common-sense animal protection policies.Apparently, the Wisconsin Humane Society has been getting inundated with questions about their supposed leap into politics.
“Russ Feingold has a consistent, proven record on animal protection and wildlife conservation,” said Sara Amundson, executive director of the HSLF. “Voters in Wisconsin deserve to know that Russ Feingold does what’s right for working families—including our animals.”
The WHS is not associated with the group behind the ad.
Here's their statement:
STATEMENT FROM THE WISCONSIN HUMANE SOCIETY:
WISCONSIN HUMANE SOCIETY NOT INVOLVED IN POLITICAL ADS
October 26, 2016: We have been flooded with inquiries about the political ads endorsing Russ Feingold in Wisconsin’s senate race. These political ads are not backed, endorsed, coordinated with, or paid for by the Wisconsin Humane Society. We never endorse candidates in political elections.
The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is funding and airing these ads through its political arm, “Humane Society Legislative Fund.” We understand that people may be confused, as our names are similar, but we are in no way a part of, nor a member of HSUS. There is no national umbrella organization for animal shelters and WHS is an independent, local nonprofit animal shelter.
We reached out to HSUS to request that they clarify that the Wisconsin Humane Society is not linked to this campaign in any way. At this link, you’ll find this passage in their official press release:
The Humane Society Legislative Fund is the nation’s leading political advocacy organization for animal welfare. HSLF raises its own money and has its own governing structure that is independent of The Humane Society of the United States, which is expressly prohibited from endorsing candidates in elections. What’s more, HSLF is in no way affiliated with the Wisconsin Humane Society or other local organizations, which generally are also expressly prohibited from making candidate endorsements.
We proudly work with legislators on both sides of the aisle on laws that affect Wisconsin’s animals, like the “puppy mill bill” signed into law with bipartisan support in 2010. We never make candidate endorsements. Our adopters and friends come from a variety of perspectives and beliefs; we serve all of them to ensure a better future for Wisconsin’s animals.
I'm glad that the Wisconsin Humane Society was "flooded" with inquiries about the Feingold ad.
It shows people are paying attention and probably many donors weren't happy about what appeared to be political advocacy by the WHS.
It was important to issue this statement to prevent an exodus of supporters.
I'm not sure the WHS statement will be enough to counter the impact of the TV ads.
I expect many people will continue to believe there is a connection between the political advocacy organization promoting Feingold and the Wisconsin Humane Society.
The confusion is understandable.

More sleaze. More lies.
From the New York Times:
In a March 2015 interview, President Obama said that he had learned about Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state “the same time everybody else learned it, through news reports.”
But that assertion concerned aides of Mrs. Clinton, who knew that the president himself had received emails from the private address, according to a hacked email made public on Tuesday by WikiLeaks.
“We need to clean this up — he has emails from her — they do not say state.gov,” Cheryl D. Mills, a top aide, wrote to John D. Podesta, another senior adviser, on March 7, 2015.
Two days later, Mr. Obama’s spokesman, Josh Earnest, tried to clarify the president’s remarks, saying that he had, in fact, exchanged emails with Mrs. Clinton through her private account. But Mr. Earnest suggested that the president had no idea the emails could be a problem because he had relied on Mrs. Clinton to make sure that using a private account did not break any laws.
“The point that the president was making is not that he didn’t know Secretary Clinton’s email address — he did — but he was not aware of the details of how that email address and server had been set up, or how Secretary Clinton and her team were planning to comply with the Federal Records Act,” Mr. Earnest said on March 9.
...The email exchange made public on Tuesday highlighted how the issue was quickly viewed with deep concern not only for Mrs. Clinton, but also for her political ally and former boss, the president.
The release also followed months of Republican arguments that the Obama administration had coordinated with the Clinton campaign to limit the damage from the emails, up to and including the Justice Department’s decision this summer not to prosecute her.
Hillary is so lucky.
She is drowning in scandals but it doesn't matter at all.
She has the media in her pocket.
There's nothing to worry about if the people aren't informed of the reality, if the media don't highlight the truth about Hillary and Obama.
Obama is a liar. Hillary is a liar. The media are OK with that. Never Trump people are OK with that, too.
It's all very clean. So very, very clean.
JIMMY FALLON: This is sweet. I read about a 100-year-old woman in Nevada who was born before women had the right to vote, and just cast an early vote for Hillary Clinton. When asked why she said, 'I was scared Trump would take away my birth control.'
I can't wait for this election to be over.
I'm tired of all the anger.
Oh, good grief!
It was not good for Kelly to end the interview the way she did.
MEGYN KELLY: We're going to have to leave it at that, and you can take your anger issues and spend some time working on them, Mr. Speaker.She lost control there.

Colin Powell joins 67 Republican politicians, donors and officials who are supporting Hillary Clinton https://t.co/iyBDTLo8HQ— Washington Post (@washingtonpost) October 25, 2016
So Colin Powell has decided to vote for the person he refers to as "a 70-year-old person with a long track record, unbridled ambition, greedy, not transformational, with a husband still dicking bimbos at home."
He calls women bimbos. What a guy!
But by all means, consider Powell's endorsement of the greedy, not transformational Hillary significant.
Colin Powell: Making it known he's voting for Democrat presidential candidates since 2008.
Electing Hillary to continue down the road toward a single-payer system, meaning total government control over our health care, sounds like a great idea. Just great. Really, really great.
JIMMY FALLON: I want to say congratulations to the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians who are set to play each other in the World Series; or as voters put it, 'Finally a crazy match-up we can actually enjoy.
The Cubs are going to the World Series for the first time in 71 years. And if you remember the last time the Cubs were in the World Series, congratulations on staying up this late.
Of course, one of the big stories about the Cubs is the so-called Curse of the Billy Goat. This occurred back in the '40s when they turned a fan away and his pet goat because goats aren't allowed in the ballpark; or as hot dog vendors put it, 'That's what you think.'

Help elect Hillary Clinton and support the Left's pro-infanticide agenda.
Can you do that in good conscience?

ROBERT CREAMER, FOUNDER OF DEMOCRACY PARTNERS: And in the end, it was the candidate, Hillary Clinton, the future president of the United States who wanted ducks on the ground, so, by God, we will get ducks on the ground.
PROJECT VERITAS ACTION JOURNALIST: Oh she... so it's... wow.
ROBERT CREAMER: Don't repeat that to anybody.
PVA JOURNALIST: Ok.
