Karl Rove, a former senior adviser to President George W. Bush, ripped into President Donald Trump on Sunday for wasting his platform and his time attacking NFL players protesting by kneeling during the national anthem. “The president has two very valuable assets: his time and his voice. This president wastes it when he engages with things like this,” Rove said Sunday during a Fox News panel discussion on Trump´s recent controversial attacks of NFL players who protest for civil rights by taking a knee during the national anthem. Rove added that the president often spends time he ought to be
Starting in 2004, some members of the George W. Bush administration and Republican lawmakers began to find evidence of discarded chemical weapons in Iraq. But when the information was brought up with the White House, senior adviser Karl Rove told them to “let these sleeping dogs lie.”
(Not from the article but interesting look into the mind of a political idiot).
Trump is right. He is Commander and Chief of the Armed Forces.He has to see the survivors of our military. What can he say to them about disgusting display of disregard for all of the young men and women who lost their lives to keep our country safe for these spoiled, over paid thugs who make the ridiculous amount of money for throwing a ball around. May those NFL traitors rot in hell.
Since when is escalating a controversy a problem? In my mind, to do nothing is a pacifist loser´s plan. It is a controversy, for God´s sake! All Trump did was call it as such and say what many of us think should and hope would happen. Sheesh! I think it is refreshing to have a POTUS that does not ever leave us wondering what he might really think! Rove is the loser.
The "ignore the mounting WMD evidence" was the worst advice he gave to Dubya. Everybody and anybody, including CNN, knows the chemical weapons went to Syria. CNN reported this at the beginning of the current Syrian war, realized it contradicted their past Dubya bashing, and hushed up on the subject.
Rove is correct in saying the president has limited time to get his agenda pushed through and there are so many important things that all of us should be concerned about. I know Trump speaks for so many of us and hate all of the PC. His base loves what he says, but he needs to broaden that base if he wants another term. The media are loving this latest because it´s something else to hammer him with.
It all started with raised fist in the Olympic, allowing the flag burning, no pledge of allegiance, no prayer, no "in God we trust", no profiling, no spanking, generous government entitlement freebies for the wimps and crybabies, legalized pot, and Doorknob Hussein that started the slippery slope to dishonoring the flags and the men who died to defend our freedom. The LOSERs are those taking the knees and raising the fists who don´t understand and process how good and fortunate they are to live in a country, become a LOW LIFE and still prosper in this greatest country in the Universe.
People should not be afraid to voice their opinions.
You live and work in America. You can freely choose anything you want to be, believe what you believe. But know this. I am a proud American. You don´t respect my beloved country, you will not under any circumstances get money from me. Nor will anyone who supports you get my support. You are nothing to me. And if you use the power of government to take my money in taxes and fees, I will stop you.
I am with President Trump on this one. Finally someone is saying what many of us feel and think. Just remember this, only 11 million people watched the Emmys. Out of 323 million Americans. The left wing media, Hollywood and a good portion of the 1%, Karl Rove, DC and the GOP think they own us. They live in their own little bubble that is not our reality. They are hysterical babies with totally different values and views of the world than me. They are WRONG.
I stand with my hand over my heart and tears in my eyes. I am always moved by the Star Spangled Banner which serves to remind me of what our country stands for: freedom and those who died saving it. I am just so thankful that our President still has the freedom to say exactly what is in his heart and that we can still listen to the SSB while our flag waves. We are doomed when the music stops.
President Trump is showing the world old fashion American leadership and it starts with honoring the flag and national anthym...not with apologizing around the world. I´m tired of political cowards afraid to stand up anymore. Go take a knee Karl.
Trump tells it like he sees it , as a Patriotic American. If Rove and his ilk don´t like it, that is just plain tough. We have had years of their garbage thrown at us.We are attempting to get people into D>C> that talk and act like real Americans, not scum that formerly and still infest that ´swamp´.
Trump needs to start speaking to his supporters in Pig Latin. These were hypothetical comments made to his supporters who roared their approval. The next day EVERY media outlet, including Fox, said Trump TOLD NFL owners to fire their players. More fake news. He said wouldn´t it be great if they did.
For some previous posters, standing up for and respecting our country is not wrong and calling out those who do disrespect it is also not wrong. Additionally, for those who just want to ignore the disrespectful actions of these over paid kids in hopes it will just go away, name just one actions by racist blacks that has ever just gone away. Never happens, whether stood up to or placated.
Until not too long ago, uncle Karl had a couple of his nieces come here several times a day to plant and cultivate his message to steer deplorable gullible conservatives into blindly supporting nominal, severe, pseudo conservatives whose love for government, power and the status quo knows no limits.
As to be expected, those few Ldotters are courageously hiding in the tall grass.
Turns out Trump knows more about football, politics, effective use of experience xecutive power and most importantly the consent of the governed than Karl Rove ever wil.
Rove... I am no longer a republican. You and your ilk have proven to NOT represent the true ideals of freedom loving Americans. As long as POTUS continues speak Truth... yes even Non-PC truth especially, he has my support and you and your minions can go to hades. Many of us will gladly pay your token to cross Styx.
rove is wrong and trump is right, as usual. i for one feel incredibly disrespected by players who paint every american as racist and affect not to know the difference between Simon Legree and Abraham Lincoln. my ancestors suffered and died in the civil war whose purpose was to end slavery. nor did my family´s sacrifices for our African American neighbors end with that. i am so insulted, so furious. i experience trump´s remarks as a defense of the deeds of my forebears, and i feel strongly they deserve as much.
If those professional football players have a First Amendment Right to protest on their employers, and fans, dime, certainly the President of the USA, as the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces also has the First Amendment Right to speak out when he sees Americans disrespecting the National Anthem, the American Flag, and the country.
Apparently the football players who kneel during the National Anthem are concerned about the tactics that local police are forced to use to effectively police African-American communities and the fact that from time to time the police find it necessary to use deadly force against African-Americans who are involved in violent criminal activities or who fail to comply with the lawful directions of the police. Those football players should spend their off time in those African-American communities instructing African-Americans not to become involved in criminal activities and to comply with lawful directions when they are encountered by the police. So instead of pissing off half their fans by disrespecting the National Anthem, the American flag, and the country, so instead by mentoring in crime ridden African-American communities, those concerned football players might actually accomplish something constructive..
They should also ask themselves how many African-Americans in those communities would be murdered by African-American criminals if the police ever decide to withdraw from those communities and no longer effectively police them.
As for Rove he has always been a never Trumper, enough said about him.
You should take it up with President Jeb ... oh ... right.
Anyhoo, Karl, here´s the deal. Trump has managed to make all these entertainment people embrace blatant anti-Americanism. So, when Americans hear them endorsing his opponents, well ... they don´t sound so good now do they?
BTW, Karl, are you the one who advised GWB to sit there and take it while the Democrats said the absolute worst things about him, the troops and the war effort in general? I´d heard you were. Trump has you to thank for his presidency.
Sports snowflakes decided to have a movement and league owners and Goodell chose to support it. Now, after all these months, it´s spreading across leagues, as well as to the college and high school levels and lower.
Fine, if we must choose between sports and America, American values and respecting American veterans, then the NFL, NBA and MLB are things of the past.
Sponsors, the owners could have stopped this. Our money is our money, and no longer yours to receive.
I wonder..... All these very highly paid ´performance cast´ members of these entertainment companies (otherwise known as football players in the NFL).... If the NFL went away, what kind of jobs would they have.... what kind of money would they be making?.... If not for sports scholarships, how many of them could have gotten into University, how many of them would have graduated?
Karl Rove would have a point, but Roger Goodell managed to undo all of the damage which Trump had done to himself, and none of the benefit, by making the comment he did.
Trump´s comment was indeed divisive in a way which made those who were neither his supporter nor his opponent uncomfortable. However, when Roger Goodell said that Trump should not have said it because it failed to show respect for the NFL...all of a sudden, those people understood why it was not bad for Trump to say it the way he had said it. Roger Goodell, these protesters, and many others have a distorted sense of who should be respected and who it is OK to disrespect. One can argue that the police of Ferguson, MO, or Baltimore, MD, or NYC have forfeited your of respect for actions they have taken (I would disagree, but the argument can be made), but that does not extend to police departments where you cannot point to similar incidents.
In one way I agree with Karl Rove - getting into the gutter with these sports nitwits is a waste of time. On the other hand, these players have insulted the President in a vicious, personal way. Their views on racial injustice are better aired off the sporting field.
Rove gave us the war in Iraq, Bush and he helped beat John Kerry - one of the biggest losers this country ever saw - another slug from the Vietnam war fiasco of LB Jerk and JFK. Rove keeps getting paid to spew propaganda and make you believe that politicians have your back.
The FBI found 2,800 documents on Anthony Weiner´s personal laptop related to his estranged wife Huma Abedin´s work as deputy chief of staff for Hillary Clinton when she served as secretary of state, according to a new report. The State Department on Tuesday informed Judicial Watch that it received those 2,800 documents from the FBI following the conservative watchdog´s lawsuit against State over its failure to respond to a Freedom of Information Act request. "The State Department has identified approximately 2,800 work-related documents among the documents provided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation," the department´s court filing states.

Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough said President Donald Trump was the “antithesis” of the teachings of Jesus Christ. Scarborough said, “You look in Matthew, and go through the Beatitudes. Every single Beatitude. You go through Jesus’s teaching. What he says he wants people to be. Donald Trump is the antithesis of just about every single thing that Jesus Christ said on the Sermon on the Mount. Go read it.” He added, “None of us are perfect, but he goes out of his way it seems to thumb his nose at all conventions. Including the basics of
The Jacksonville Jaguars have issued an apology to a local veterans group for the team´s peaceful protest in London last month. Nearly all of the Jaguars players and owner Shad Khan locked arms during the national anthem on September 24, prior to a game against the Baltimore Ravens, while around a dozen or so players took a knee to protest inequality and police violence against minorities. Jaguars President Mark Lamping addressed the apology letter to Jacksonville´s director of military affairs and veterans department Bill Spann, saying the team was ´remiss in not fully comprehending the effect of the national anthem
THIS IS A STUNNING DEVELOPMENT———————Prior to the Obama administration approving the very controversial deal in 2010 giving Russia 20% of America’s Uranium, the FBI had evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were involved in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering in order to benefit Vladimir Putin, says a report by The Hill. Who was right in the middle of it all? HILLARY CLINTON.

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Tuesday at a joint press conference with President Trump said his country´s relationship with the U.S. is perhaps at its "best" since World War II, despite once predicting a Trump presidency would be "evil." Tsipras said the relationship between the U.S. and Greece is thriving, as Greece comes out of an economic crisis and begins to attract investments and increase trade, thanks in part to the U.S. But Tsipras, asked head on what he thinks of Mr. Trump now, after casting his presidency in such a negative light last year, said he and Mr.
President Trump said Tuesday that he has narrowed the search for the next Federal Reserve chairman down to five candidates, all of whom are viable nominees. "Honestly, I like ´em all," Trump said of the five potential central bankers, speaking at a press conference with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras at the White House. "I´ll make a decision over the next very short period of time," Trump said. One of the five candidates is current Chairwoman Janet Yellen, whose term expires at the end of January. Trump reportedly also met with Stanford economist John Taylor, an advocate of rules-based monetary
A-list Hollywood actress Reese Witherspoon revealed, in a speech to Elle Magazine´s Women in Hollywood Monday night, that she was sexually assaulted by a director at age 16 — and then forced to stay silent as a condition of employment. Witherspoon dedicated her remarks to the women who have come forward to accuse Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment, sexual assault, and rape, telling the crowd of her "guilt" for not speaking up about her own horrific encounters. "This has been a really hard week for women in Hollywood, for women all over the world, and a lot of
New evidence has emerged to confirm Peter Schweizer’s account in his bestselling book Clinton Cash about the corrupt tactics behind former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s approval of Russia’s purchase of 20 percent of U.S. uranium. Josh Solomon and Alison Spann report in The Hill: Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government
Former President Barack Obama did not personally call Gen. John Kelly, a Marine General who had commanded a multinational force in Iraq, when his son got killed in action in Afghanistan, according to an administration source. The source responded to an inquiry from DailyMail.com about Kelly after President Donald Trump raised a question about it in an interview on Brian Kilmeade´s radio show on Fox Tuesday. Trump the previous day had caused a flap by claiming his predecessors ´didn´t make calls´ to families of the fallen. Trump´s initial comments drew an angry response from prior White House officials who said
A San Francisco Bay mansion with enormous glass walls set upon one of the Bay Area´s highest privately owned peaks has burned to the ground in the recent wildfires.

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Tuesday issued a warning shot after Republican Sen. John McCain questioned "half-baked, spurious nationalism" in America´s foreign policy, saying "people have to be careful because at some point I fight back." McCain, a former Navy pilot who spent 5½ years in a Vietnam prisoner of war camp and is battling brain cancer, offered a simple response to Trump: "I have faced tougher adversaries." Trump said in a radio interview with WMAL in Washington, "I´m being very, very nice but at some point I fight back and it won´t be pretty." He bemoaned McCain´s decisive
Hillary Clinton was forced to make a series of embarrassing media cancellations today after falling and hurting her foot, MailOnline can reveal. The former First Lady failed to show up at BBC Woman’s Hour, ITV´s This Morning show and at the London Studios to record an interview with the BBC´s Graham Norton Show. Sources said her fall had followed her appearance at the South Bank Centre last night and the twice-defeated Presidential candidate had been exhausted after a lengthy book promotion tour. This Morning presenter Philip Schofield said on Snapchat: ´Supposed to be interviewing Hillary Clinton... but she´s fallen over
Hillary Clinton fell and broke her toe during her book tour in London as President Trump said he hoped she would run for president again in 2020.Clinton, who had to cancel several interviews on Monday, appeared on "The Graham Norton Show" with a protective walking boot on her right foot.“I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards,” she said.“I tried to get up and it really hurt.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) blasted “half-baked, spurious nationalism” in the United States in an emotional speech Monday night after receiving the National Constitution Center’s Liberty Medal. “To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain ´the last best hope of earth´ for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of
Hillary Clinton slammed what she called "endemic" sexism and misogyny in America during an interview with Fareed Zakaria, which aired Sunday. Clinton, who was interviewed by Zakaria on his show, "GPS," said sexism was so inherent that she purposely hadn´t highlighted her career history of fighting for women´s rights when she ran for president in 2016. However, she admitted that with the benefit of hindsight, she "could have tried harder" to do so. "I´m a middle-class girl from the middle of the country, and so I always struggled with like, OK, so what´s my story. And it suddenly dawned on me that
New York activist Tamika Mallory says she was booted from an American Airlines flight in Miami after a pilot inserted himself into a dispute over her seat assignment. Mallory, a co-chair of the Women’s March on Washington, was traveling home to New York when the pilot followed her to scold her over an argument she had with a gate agent. He then had her summoned from her seat and kicked off the flight, she told the Daily News. “It definitely was white male aggression. I was singled out, I was disrespected, and he was trying to intimidate me. I was
Sure, it´s been more than 340 days since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton, but there´s still one very narrow, highly unlikely and entirely unprecedented way that Clinton could become president. And it has some Democratic die-hards dreaming again. Harvard University professor Lawrence Lessig offered a Clinton path to the presidency on Medium, putting forward a series of "if/then" scenarios that lead to House Speaker Paul Ryan handing the White House keys to Clinton. Here´s how constitutional law expert Lessig lays it out: If number 1: If Trump is definitively found to have colluded directly with Russia, he would be forced to resign or
Hillary Clinton on Sunday defended NFL players who knelt during the national anthem, saying kneeling is a “reverent” position that is not against “our anthem or our flag.” The former Democratic presidential candidate, who was at the Southbank Centre´s London Literature Festival, urged Democrats to use the issue against President Trump. Clinton was embarking on a foreign trip to promote her book “What Happened.” She said people should resist “what are very clear dog-whistles” to the Trump base, pointing to the example of kneeling NFL players. “That´s what black athletes kneeling was all about,” she said in response to a question about ways to
If the NFL thought Americans would ease the backlash against the league — they were sadly mistaken. Photos of empty stadiums from around the league show how dire a situation kneelers have spurred. (Photo) Breitbart News reports: Note, that the Jets played New England on Sunday, meaning there should have been a big crowd for that game. The Texans, Atlanta, and Baltimore are also very relevant teams with relatively loyal fan bases. Yet, thousands upon thousands of fans no-showed or didn’t buy tickets for those games.

Jane Fonda made it clear she is not proud of America. During a recent interview with the BBC, Fonda was asked, "Are you proud of America today?" The actress was very quick to reply with a hard "no." "But, I’m proud of the resistance," she elaborated. "I’m proud of the people who are turning out in unprecedented numbers and continue over and over and over again to protest what Trump is doing. I’m very proud of them, that core." During the same interview, the 79-year-old was asked if she had a "sense of regret" for her visit to North Vietnam in 1972. The
Sen. John McCain warned against the US turning toward ´half-baked, spurious nationalism´ and jabbed at unnamed pushers of isolationist politics while at an event honoring the war hero´s contributions. (Snip) ´To abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems, is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history,´ he said.

Former NFL quarter Colin Kaepernick has filed a grievance against NFL owners because he believes they colluded to keep him out of a job due to his protests during the national anthem. Kaepernick first protested in the 2016 preseason when he took a knee during the national anthem. He claimed he protested against racial injustice across the country. The protests took off, with many players following his lead.Kaepernick hired criminal defense lawyer Mark Geragos, who has represented Michael Jordan and musician Chris Brown. CBS Sports reported this statement from Geragos: We can confirm that this morning we filed a grievance under the
The Clinton Foundation told DailyMail.com it will not return as much as $250,000 in donations from Harvey Weinstein, saying on Sunday the money had already been spent on the organization’s programs and used for charitable purposes. The foundation’s decision comes as politicians and philanthropic groups grapple with whether to return donations they have received from Weinstein, after numerous women stepped forward this month to accuse the movie mogul of sexual assault, harassment and rape. Over a dozen Democratic politicians have said they will give back or donate Weinstein’s campaign contributions to charity. The Clinton Foundation faced questions about Weinstein’s funding after Hillary Clinton
