  1. I don't think this was ever confirmed. People just found it odd that Jill or Jessa registered for something like 40 towels and made the assumption that some of the towels were going to replenish the TTH.
  2. The raid I talked about happened less than three years ago. If a raid happens, the person/corporation has been watched and investigated for a while and the FBI has more than enough to nail them. The raid is normally the final “gotcha” to make their case. Make no mistake- if the feds come and raid your home, it’s about 99% certain that you’re going to prison.
  3. Duggarfam (family IG) posted a picture of some of the kids still at the TTH, but that could have been a scheduled post. No one else has posted anything.
  4. An FBI raid seems unlikely because when they conduct a “raid”, they aren’t that discreet about it. The school district I grew up in had their administrative offices raided during the school day and the FBI just rolled up, gave them their warrant, and then proceeded to take their sweet time collecting computers and file cabinets. It took a few hours for them to get everything they needed and all the news stations camped out for the day watching them fill the FBI vans with “evidence”. Granted, this is smaller scale, but I can’t see why anyone would not have gotten a picture and I can’t see the FBI not taking their sweet time to make a sweep of the premises. If any of this turns out to be true, I hope it’s only financial. I don’t want any children or non-consenting people involved. There’s already been too much heartache and pain caused by Josh and Co.
  5. The Duggars have cameras set up around their home that they monitor so it's completely possible.
  6. It could have been a case of everyone over 18 (i.e. they couples) saying they would "volunteer" and not get any money for appearing, but JB going behind their backs and getting a paid contract that excluded them.

    Russians Face Ban from 2020 Olympics You'd think after the 2014/2016/2018 Olympics Russia would have learned their lesson to stop doping athletes. If this is true, then I hope the IOC FINALLY puts their foot down and outright bans Russia as they should have done in 2018. No "Olympic Athlete from Russia"- an outright ban of anyone competing from there. I'd be devastated for the Russian WAG and MAG teams, but I am so tired of Russia being allowed to get away with cheating.

    He qualified for the high bar final. It also, coincidentally, falls on his 27th birthday, lol.

    I’m inclined to agree at this juncture. HOWEVER, when you think about it, she really is a perfect fit when it comes to the team because she is reliable and can bring good scores across all apparatuses on a higher level of execution than Grace (based on her performances last quad). If she somehow comes back full difficulty with her same reliability it would be hard to leave her off. I blame USAG more for their lack of assertiveness, though I think their hands were tied with Jade due to all the Nassar fallout and they didn’t want ONE MORE THING for people to be up in arms about so they made the criteria for the specialist spot specific only to her. For Jade, I can see why she’d go the individual route, because initially it looked like there wouldn’t be a place for her in a team scenario at the beginning of the quad. Now, with it being one year out, her chances of being on the team would be very high, but she couldn’t know that in 2017 and went for the specialist spot in hopes of placing the future in her hands. If they continue with the specialist spots in the future, I hope USAG makes it clear that individuals may not secure their own spots and will only secure nominative AA spots. Sam CONTINUES to break everyone’s heart. He seems like an absolute sweetheart and has everything required to be AA champion and it never comes together. I wish I could stop being a fan, but I can’t. Sigh. Here’s to hoping he does better in EF!

    Absolutely not. She would have made sure both spots were nominative so she and the team selection committee could pick who got the spots and I wouldn't have blamed them for doing it that way. If Jade in any way gets injured her spot goes to the next athlete on the list that is most likely from a different country. That's why if Jade earns her individual spot USAG HAS to put their foot down and tell her she can't try for the team spot and cannot compete at Olympic Trials. As for today's events...YES!!!!!!!! RUSSIA WIN GOLD!!!!!!! ❤️❤️❤️ The final was AMAZING and a back-and-forth the entire way. USA got fourth, but everyone hit and Sam redeemed his qualifications disaster from the other day.

    I think so, if she can get back her consistency and raise her difficulty. Her big issue is there are plenty of amazing bar workers this quad. She needs to hone her balance beam score to have a real shot, IMO. The NCAA will just kick all the California college teams out of the NCAA and/or disqualify any California team with a player that has gone “pro”.

    There’s no one else, with the exception of Jade and Simone, who can match what she brings on vault and Jade cannot be on the team. Not to mention she has the potential of a very high difficulty score on balance beam and her floor is perfectly useable. Her bars aren’t the best, but if she had to go up her score wouldn’t tank the team. She also has another year before the Olympics and can hopefully clean everything up In terms of event finals, it doesn’t really factor into the team dynamic that much with the specialist roles in place. Whosever takes a specialist role is likely to get an EF spot because that’s their speciality. If, for example, Riley goes for UB/BB and jade takes VT/FL, then we can assume that the four girls on the team are competing for four EF spots, which will all be likely taken by Simone. That means three girls on the team are potentially competing for the team medal only. Therefore, maximizing medals isn’t a priority for the team selection if you pick the right specialists.

    Jade is going the individual route so she cannot get a spot on the team. That leaves a vault/floor spot open that Mykayla can fill very easily if she continues to work on her form and get better. Grace is also a very good prospect for the team because she puts up decent scores on every apparatus and she’s reliable. Not that exciting to watch, but reliable. The final spot comes down to Riley/Suni for bars and beam, which depends on who shows up with what upgrades. A team of Simone, Grace, Mykayla, and Suni/Riley is solid if each one continues to do what they do. Now, as for current events... -I don’t get the rage over Simone’s beam dismount rating. It is what is it. The FIG is under no obligation to give any skill the rating a gymnast thinks it deserves and saying that they are doing it to penalize the USA is ridiculous. FIG has given way more questionable ratings to other elements and if any country has a reason to complain it’s China with the all the caps they put on uneven bars and beam as they would destroy everyone if they weren’t in place. -I was super proud of Grace and her routines today despite the fall on beam. She was solid. 👍🏻 -Simone also did well (as expected) and her beam was especially lovely. -Sunisa’s bars were glam and I’m so glad she gets to do AA. -I am devastated for Kara and furious at her stupid coaches who put in an inquiry for her beam score when she had already qualified!!!!! 😫 Lesson learned- don’t inquire unless it’s the final and you have nothing to lose! This also doesn’t bode well for her Olympic chances unless she can clean up her routine. -On a positive ending note, Chuso has officially made her eighth Olympics. Amazing!

    She’s another one getting hate, but she’s honestly a good option because she puts up serviceable scores on everything.

    Most people are raging over this team, but I don’t disagree with it. Simone was always a lock, Sunisa is very likely bars champion, and Kara really did bring it when it mattered most. Jade also performed well even though an argument could be made that she should have been left off because she can’t (well, she could, but she really shouldn’t if she has her individual spot locked down) be on the team next year. However, I suppose you could make the argument that she shouldn’t be denied the chance to medal at Worlds... I adore Morgan, but she has had a really rough season and didn’t do enough to earn her spot. Someone on another site also pointed out that several that weren’t competing last year have also come up recently and pushed her further back in the pack. It’s crazy how competitive this quad is! Many are angry about MyKayla, but to me she has done remarkably well gaining back her elite form in the past six months and has been performing consistently well. She’s probably the alternate (I think it’s between her and Grace, tbh) but her points on vault would make up for the tenths lost on UB if she were to perform in the team competition.
