For a brief period, it appeared the whole NFL kneeling thing was winding down — and then bam, back to the drawing board, boys, as Commissioner Roger Goodell apparently didn’t tell football players they had to stand for the national anthem, after all. (Snip) Here’s the latest in this whole fake social justice fight — fake, because it’s based on a false narrative that white police randomly and rampantly target blacks and minorities to gun down and kill. Think Colin Kaepernick, circa August 2016, decked in police pig socks. Anyhow: President Donald Trump has been on the right side of this NFL kneeling issue from the start,
Comments: If the football players, or any other sports operative won´t stand for our National Anthem, they should "stand" in the unemployment line to clarify proper respect. You are guys are all cowards to demean our National Symbol (Flag) because you feel protected by the dRATS who keep you on their plantations. If you want to kneel, do it in Church, thanking God that he gave you the ability to earn the kind of money most of US would never dream of making in a lifetime staying home and supporting our families.
The NFL teams should give 10% of their revenue to charity, and so should the broadcasters. Then, the owners and players should give 10% of their revenue to charity. The IRS should automatically make these deductions on their tax filings.
Get off your knees and prove that Black Lives Matter to you. Get engaged in anti-gang programs, invest in scholarships for charter schools in the inner city. Buy a gym and show up so kids have a reason to go there.
If you can´t do that, get off the field. You are ruining the careers of many future black athletes because the NFL will cease to exist.
Trust me. I refuse to watch the NFL along with millions of others.
One nail at a time seals the coffin. When the stupid, mentally challenged, and unAmerican NFLers are still kneeling come Thanksgiving Day, the last nail will be driven to seal their coffin. NFL = No Football League.
When the American people get emotionally involved in something, look out. And we are very involved with the NFL´s ongoing disrespect of things we value. The NFL will learn sooner or later (I can´t believe they haven´t learned it YET), that they have lost us. For good. Even a handful of friends who are former NFL players have told me they are incensed by the protests and have even stopped paying attention to NFL football.
Austria’s new government has unveiled plans for financial “sanctions” on immigrants who keep their own culture and do not “integrate” with mainstream society. The government, a coalition between the conservative People’s Party (OVP) and the far-right Freedom Party (FPO), agreed a deal at the weekend with provisions set to make life more difficult for foreigners in the country. The two parties’ agreed policy programme says that immigrants who are judged to be “refusing to integrate” should expect “sanctions”. One specific policy outlined in the agreement includes a cut to the basic level of support payments for asylum
President Trump is set to unveil a new national security strategy on Monday, emphasizing national sovereignty over alliances and economic security – and reversing Obama-era warnings of climate change. Trump will go further into detail about the so-called “America First” national security strategy in a speech on Monday, a plan that could alter the U.S. relationship with the rest of the world if fully implemented. According to a senior administration official, Trump’s doctrine has four main pillars: protecting the homeland and way of life; promoting American prosperity; demonstrating peace through strength;
Russian President Vladimir Putin called President Trump on Sunday to thank him for providing intelligence that helped thwart a planned terror attack in St. Petersburg, the White House has confirmed. The call was confirmed to Fox News and other news outlets by White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, who told reporters more information on the call would follow. The intelligence was reportedly a CIA tip related to a series of planned bombings. The Kremlin said Putin told Trump during the call that the information provided by the CIA also was sufficient to track down and detain a group of suspects that was planning to bomb
Strange footage has captured the moment conspiracy theorists say an alien mothership shot a laser beam at the International Space Station. The footage shows what appears to be a pattern of bright lights hovering above the Nasa run base. Moments later, a red beam of light seems to pulse from the object toward the habitat, occupied by astronauts from five space agencies. The footage, which had amassed around 25,000 views at the time of publication, was posted to YouTube by UFO hunter Streetcap1. Speaking in the clip, he said: ´Look at the red light coming from them and going to the space station. It's pretty strange.
Chef Mario Batali on Friday apologized over allegations that he sexually harassed women — then also suggested a cinnamon roll recipe. The apology and "fan favorite" recipe were sent via his newsletter. (Snip) Batali opened the message with an apology for his behavior. "I have made many mistakes and I am so very sorry that I have disappointed my friends, my family, my fans and my team," Batali wrote. "My behavior was wrong and I take full responsibility." The apology came after Eater reported earlier this week that four women in the restaurant industry said Batali had inappropriately touched them.
Of all the prodigious advances in technology taking place today, none is more profound — and troubling — for the human condition than the advent of gene editing and synthetic biology. Corrective intervention in the human genome promises the elimination of genetically induced disease, bolstering of the human immune system, and extended longevity. (Snip) Yet if that process trespasses ethical boundaries agreed upon today by responsible scientists, it could change the human genome forever by altering the “germline” — gene sequences inherited and passed down through generations.
Geneva - The United Nations said Friday that it was appalled by a mass execution of prisoners in Iraq and called for an immediate halt to executions, citing flaws in the country’s criminal justice system. Iraq’s Ministry of Justice said 38 prisoners were executed on terrorism-related charges in the southern city of Nasiriya on Thursday, but it gave no details of the prisoners’ identities or the offenses (Snip) Iraqi courts are dealing with thousands of prisoners, including foreigners and hundreds of children, some as young as 13, who were detained in the past two years because they were suspected of being Islamic State fighters or
To get to Ivanka Trump’s store in Trump Tower, shoppers must first walk past metal barricades and police in body armor toting automatic weapons. Through the revolving doors is another checkpoint, where security employees check your bags. Then, once you’ve made it through, the now famous lobby and its golden elevators appear. In an alcove just to the side is a window. On it is the first daughter’s logo. (Snip) Earlier this year, the business discontinued its fine jewelry line. (Ivanka Trump gave up day-to-day control of the company when she joined her father in the White House, working as an unpaid assistant.) Link corrected
Minnesota Lt. Gov. Tina Smith was appointed Wednesday to temporarily fill the Senate seat of Democratic Sen. Al Franken, who resigned amid allegations of sexual misconduct and pressure within his party to leave office. Smith, a Democrat, was appointed by Minnesota Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton and will serve until a special election next year to complete Franken’s term ending in 2020. She is expected to run to finish the term. Dayton was under pressure from Washington Democrats to appoint a replacement who would run in 2018. The 59-year-old Smith is a former General Mills executive who in the 1990 started her own
President Donald Trump has spent the better part of his campaign and now, presidency, railing against the media, calling out its members for bias, condemning certain networks for outright targeted take-down attempts of his administration — and according to a new study from the Media Research Center, he kind of has a point. Specifically, the study showed that in September, October and November, almost 91 percent of remarks from reporters’ and other so-called non-partisan-types’ mouths during evening ABC, NBC and CBS broadcasts were anti-Trump in nature. Ninety-one percent. That’s pretty dang significant.
Rep. Mo Brooks announced Wednesday in an emotional House floor address that he has prostate cancer. Mr. Brooks, Alabama Republican, said that losing the Senate primary in October may have saved his life. He was running against eventual nominee Roy Moore, but fell short. He said that if he had won, he would not have been able to schedule his physical, which led to his diagnosis. “God does work in mysterious ways,” he said. Mr. Brooks said he will leave for surgery, which is scheduled for Friday.
A former congressional intern reportedly says she too was a victim of inappropriate sexual contact by now-retired Rep. John Conyers, saying Conyers even claimed during that encounter to have “inside information” on then-missing federal intern Chandra Levy. Courtney Morse, 36, described the incident from 16 years ago to The Washington Post. She said Conyers, D-Mich., mentioned the Levy case when Morse was a college intern for him and the congressman drove her home one night. Morse said Conyers wrapped his hand around hers while it was in her lap and said he was interested in a sexual relationship,
Over 700 employees at the Environmental Protection Agency have quit or taken early retirement during the Trump administration so far, bringing the agency close to employment levels not seen since Reagan. ThinkProgress, whose senior editor is scared of his plumber who he fears may have voted for Trump, is warning that the exodus will lead to "dirtier air" and "dirtier water." "Since Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt took over the top job at the agency in March, more than 700 employees have either retired, taken voluntary buyouts, or quit, signaling the second-highest exodus of employees from the agency in nearly a
An MSNBC spokesman confirmed Saturday the company made a separation-related payment to one of Chris Matthews employees after the woman complained about sexual harassment. Two sources familiar with the situation told The Daily Caller that Matthews paid $40,000 to settle with an assistant producer on his show, “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” in 1999 after she accused him of harassment. An MSNBC spokesperson contested that claim to the Caller, saying the company instead paid significantly less as part of a severance package. The woman complained to CNBC executives about Matthews making inappropriate comments and jokes about her while in the company
There’s bad news and there’s worse news for President Donald Trump in new polls released this week. First comes the latest round of polling showing that Trump is the most unpopular president on record. Just 32% of respondents to a new Associated Press-NORC poll said they approved of the job Trump is doing as president, while an overwhelming 67% they disapproved. Among those who don’t think the president is doing a good job, more than half say they “strongly disapprove” of his work. The poll — conducted earlier this month — also suggests that nearly 70% of Americans believe the United States is “heading
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is returning to Arizona and will miss the final vote on his party’s tax bill this week, CBS News reported Sunday. McCain, who has been hospitalized at Walter Reed Medical Center suffering from the side effects of his treatment for brain cancer, reportedly left Washington, D.C., on Sunday to return home for the holidays. This means he will not be in D.C. for the GOP tax bill vote, which is expected to take place early in the week. Republicans have won over two key votes for the measure, meaning they should still have the razor-thin majority needed to
I don’t know whether this is comedy or a sign that in rural America, Democrats really don’t have anyone to run in statewide races. There were rumors that Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) could become the next director of the CIA, current CIA Director Mike Pompeo would become secretary of state, and current Secretary of State Rex Tillerson would be asked to take a hike. Talk about some unwelcome Thanksgiving news if you’re Tillerson. The Trump White House has rejected the notion that this plan is in the works. Tillerson himself said he’s never considered leaving his current post.
For much of the year, Kirsten Gillibrand’s critics — sensing a presidential aspirant in their midst — had assumed that the New York senator could not hear enough about herself. For one day at least, it appeared she had. It had been about 10 hours since President Trump accused her of “begging” for campaign contributions that she “would do anything” to secure, and the Ms. Gillibrand, driving with her 14-year-old son on Tuesday evening, flipped on the radio looking for an update on the Senate race in Alabama. The top story, instead, was her. The radio went off again. What, exactly,
Democrats, who have a monopoly of power in California politics, are proposing to spend $1 billion a year to provide health care to illegal immigrants living in the state. Medi-Cal, which is the state’s Medicaid program, would eliminate legal residency requirements.The proposal was offered as part of a $4.3 billion proposal from San Francisco Democrat Assemblyman Phil Ting, the head of the Assembly budget committee. According to NBC Bay Area, 7% of people residing in California lack health coverage, many of them illegal immigrants. California has already eliminated legal residency requirements for Medicaid coverage for
Hillary Clinton responded to a "Saturday Night Live" actor who showed off a new tattoo in the former Democratic presidential nominee´s likeness.Pete Davidson posted an image of his new Hillary ink on his Instagram page, saying it was a "gift" for the 2016 runner-up."Wanted to get @HillaryClinton a Christmas gift so I got a tattoo of my hero," Davidson, 24, wrote on Instagram. "Thanks for being such a bad-[expletive] and one of the strongest people in the universe," he wrote. (Tweet) Clinton later commented on Davidson´s post, thanking him for his support."Thanks," the former first lady wrote. "This makes it
It appears the Obama Administration weaponized the Federal Bureau of Investigation just like they weaponized the Internal Revenue Service. The Obama administration used government agencies to wage a covert war on their political enemies. This is an all-out war. We have a growing mountain of evidence to suggest the FBI was attempting to overthrow a duly elected president. We have evidence to suggest the FBI was protecting Hillary Clinton so she might be elected president. There is no smoking gun just yet – but the evidence is staggering – it is simply staggering. Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) told the Todd
O.J. Simpson´s former lawyer and an investigator who worked on his case have revealed plans for a book they say will finally put to rest the public´s disbelief that he was acquitted of murder. F.Lee Bailey was one of several lawyers who worked on Simpson´s case in the 1990s. (Snip) Now 84, Bailey and Pat McKenna, the investigator who the defense hired, are shopping a book to publishers which they say will finally address what millions have been incredulous over for decades - how did OJ get off? ´We’re not writing this to make a fortune. ´We’re writing this to
The Democracy Dies in Darkness Café is located conveniently near the Capitol, the Hill and the FBI headquarters. It’s open all night and I stopped in for a late-night coffee with my friend, a fiction novelist who was depressed. “I spent a year writing about a coup attempt against an outsider who by strategic brilliance defeated the handpicked candidate of a cabal of establishment powerhouses. It involved the highest officials of the FBI and Department of Justice. They manipulated a FISA Court into letting them electronically surveil the candidate and all who worked with him, unmasked their names, leaked what
PART I A GLOBAL THREAT EMERGES How Hezbollah turned to trafficking cocaine and laundering money through used cars to finance its expansion. In its determination to secure a nuclear deal with Iran, the Obama administration derailed an ambitious law enforcement campaign targeting drug trafficking by the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah, even as it was funneling cocaine into the United States, according to a POLITICO investigation. The campaign, dubbed Project Cassandra, was launched in 2008 after the Drug Enforcement Administration amassed evidence that Hezbollah had transformed itself from a Middle East-focused military and political organization into an international crime syndicate that some investigators believed was
