"I don’t like chokers…"
It seems like my world was chokers where I came from — El Monte, Arroyo, Chupacabras... Some talented, but eventual chokers.
To choke is to pull a “Mitt Romney,” as Trump described Mitt’s loss to Obama.
(BTW: Speaking of losers... Trump also dismissed John McCain in the same way… Fox News pollster Frank Luntz brought up out of nowhere that “he’s a war hero,” as if the questionable statement were relevant to the conversation they were having.)
They also call them headcases. People who think about it too much and fail, in sports such as cross country, track, or whatever.
Some people are not chokers, like Kobe Bryant or Michael Jordan, and some of their supporting teammates. They’re called clutch players, right?
I’ve had some friends and maybe family who were not chokers; they were make something happen types — aggressive.
Can you overcome being a choker? I think so. Just stop being a… [choker].
They’re kind of like betas and alphas but TBH even the non-chokers can be beta still. But it’s useful in the world not to be a choker. Pride debilitates the chokers. Something does anyway! Thoughts? Fear? “Anger”?
An example of someone who didn’t choke
Keenan something, a black coach and security guard, is not, at least in this story, a choker. He took a shotgun from an 18-year-old high school student in Oregon before he was able to kill himself with it. According to tweets by some about the NBC article that came out after security footage leaked and went viral, he may not have killed others.
The black guy is seen bear-hugging the guy who’s Hispanic, and holding the long gun for a white male to run up and grab. The white male, prompted by the black guy, gets the gun away from the two as the black guy continues hugging the Mexican.
Liberals love it because it’s feel-good and didn’t involve a good guy with a gun.

I read about Elizabeth Warren
She’s formerly known as Liz Warren. Some female writer did a puff piece about her in Washington Post, saying she faced sexism (no such thing), etc. It was called “the transformation of Elizabeth Warren,” and showed her all young and pretty in 1970, then today how she looks at age 70. (I have photos from the article.)
She was married and had at two young children when she began teaching law as the only female law professor at a university in Texas. (Women in the workplace causes problems all around — especially women like this.)
Her husband and the father of her children was her high school sweetheart, I believe, and he admired her drive but then according to her was not comfortable with her “ambition,” as the Wash. Post writer put it. We have no way of knowing, because he’s dead now — died young at 53 or so. (Her aunt came to take care of her kids by the way.) According to her, he wouldn’t say anything but would give looks. Eventually she say she asked him if he wanted a divorce, and according to her he said yes. Sounds like a beta, TBH.
Her ex remarried, and so did she. (She got child support and an unusually good deal. BETA!) She met another beta male and one of them said it was “instant attraction.” Gross. I think she was divorced and remarried to this guy by age 32! (BTW: This male may be the guy in the “beer” video on Instagram Live from when she announced she was running for president. “I think I’ll have a… beer. … Oh hi [husband], thanks for joining…. Want a beer?” “No thanks!”)
She told about a superior with polio who chased her around his office — at his funeral!
Speaking of females running for president…
#HappyBirthdayKamala is trending. Gross.
And speaking of females who can’t handle pressure…
I watched a viral video of Meghan Markle saying she wasn’t okay, and that most people don’t ask her if she’s okay. HAHA! The hashtag #WeLoveYouMeghan was trending the other day. RETARDED. She had a baby (I think a boy), and is trying to do all these wonderful PR plays to support do-gooder organizations. (Is Meghan Markle a choker? She’s choking as a mother!) Feminism kills families. Beta males allow it.
BTW: (People) “Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will take ‘family time’ off and may spend Thanksgiving in the U.S.” — because she’s AMERICAN, and he’s going into HER world!
You know what’s a choker country? The U.K.
Headline: Days after opening its first U.K. restaurant, Chick-fil-A announces the location will close. SMH. Fix that, Meghan! (But she won’t, because she’s a liberal.)
You know who else is a female running for president?
Tulsi Gabbard went after Hillary hard after Hillary Clinton suggested she was a Russian asset. She tweeted some harsh stuff. A lot of guys sort of kiss up to her — she’s fake but she’s not as fake as the other Democrats, I guess? She’s the one who kneeled and proposed to her boyfriend, and he felt awkward and kneeled too, I think.
You know who’s not a choker? Trump
I saw this headline of wishful thinking by Wash. Post: “Trump’s season of weakness: A president who covets strength faces a feeble stretch.” Fake news! The article is by a guy Philip Rucker. No doubt himself a weak man. He hasn’t been watching the Trump rallies. Trump keeps on trucking!
I FORGOT TO COVER THIS LAST SUNDAY: #MeToo and Evil People Attacking Each Other
(Drudge) UPDATE: NBC Roiled by Ronan Farrow Book Accusations… Staffers 'really, really angry'... (Daily Beast) ‘Women are furious’! “I honestly want to throw up,” one NBC employee told The Daily Beast amid new disturbing claims about the network’s dealings with Harvey Weinstein and Matt Lauer. There are nasty accusations against Matt Lauer who used to host NBC News shows for decades! After the release of Ronan’s messy book, NBC trashed Farrow in an internal memo, Lauer smeared accuser Brooke Nevils in an “open letter,” and both Farrow and Nevils fired back. Nevils, a former NBC producer, said in a statement about Lauer that “His open letter was a case study in victim-blaming,” the statement first aired on NBC’s Nightly News. Nevils alleged Lauer had sex with her when she was too drunk to consent. (THAT’S DUMB HE WAS PROBABLY TOO DRUNK TOO! There was also one other nasty type of sex that’s not even really sex that she accused him of doing that she claims she didn’t want.) After Nevils’ on-the-record allegation broke Wednesday morning, Lack issued a statement that said: “Matt Lauer’s conduct in 2014 was appalling and reprehensible—and of course we said so at the time.” WEAK!
(CNN) Air-quality scientists discuss pollution and health
Independent air quality experts were set to meet Thursday and Friday to review the science of particulate matter pollution -- tiny droplets with dirt, dust, soot or smoke that have been linked to cancer, stroke and heart attack. The scientists were dismissed last year from a federal panel and claim the EPA aims to “to subvert the Clean Air Act.” THANK GOD FOR TRUMP!
(CNN) The Nobel Peace Prize winner is revealed
The recipient, among 301 candidates, is set to be announced Friday and will join the likes of former President Barack Obama (affirmative action), Malala Yousafzai (girls’ education), Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Mother Teresa. HORRIBLE CROWD OF PHONIES.
You know who liberals were mad that didn’t win the Nobel Prize? Greta Thunberg! SMH, RME!
