US soccer star Megan Rapinoe stuck to her resolve not to sing the national anthem ahead of the team’s first match in the Women's World Cup against Thailand in France on Tuesday. The player stood silent and stony-faced as her teammates sang along to the 'Star-Spangled Banner' in the Auguste-Delaune Stadium in Reims. The 33-year-old midfielder went on to score a goal in the game as the US women's soccer team recorded the biggest victory in World Cup history with a thumping 13-0 win over Thailand and kicked off their quest for a fourth title.

Comments:

Xer status as a member of The Resistance supersedes loyalty to the team or Xer nation; Ze should be kicked off the team.

"Solidarity with Dysfunctionality but not with America" is her slogan. Given an opportunity to represent her country on the US Team, she shows her true "colors," and they ain't red-white-&-blue. Her dysfunctionality is in HER, and not in America. How about: if you don't SING you are off the team pal. America doesn't need to win if it means knuckling under to please lesbians.

I'm guessing all 11 or 12 fans of women's soccer in the USA are mostly pretty upset at her. But maybe they are all lesbians and watch it to ogle at the masculine looking women. So they all think she is wonderful (and really hot in a masculine bull dyke sort of way). Don't know and really don't care!!!

Two top Republican appropriators urged President Trump Friday to abandon a package of foreign-aid cuts of as much as $4.3 billion, saying the proposed action could undermine national security and damage trust with Congress. Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, chairman of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs, and Rep. Hal Rogers of Kentucky, top Republican on the House Appropriations Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations and Related Programs, said the spending includes “efforts to counter Kremlin and Chinese malign influence.”(Snip) The Washington Times reported Thursday that the cuts under consideration include aid for a so-called “Green New Deal

Gov. J.B. Pritzker has signed a law allowing Illinois to take its own action to slow climate change. The Democrat approved legislation this week that repeals the Kyoto Protocol Act of 1998. It limited state action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The U.S. withdrew from Kyoto in 2001. But Illinois had put it into state law so it was bound by rules the federal government no longer intended to follow. Naperville Democratic Sen. Laura Ellman says it sends a message that "Illinois is ready to get serious about climate change." The law she and Evanston Democratic Rep. Robyn Gabel sponsored takes effect Jan. 1.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) reported that the students will start receiving their free meals at the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year, thanks to a congressional program dating back to 2010 called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) subsidizes the meals through this congressional program, and “allows the nation’s highest poverty schools and districts to serve breakfast and lunch at no cost to all enrolled students without collecting household applications,”

When Bill Clinton successfully unseated sitting President George H.W. Bush in 1992, Clinton’s campaign manager James Carville coined the phrase, “It's the economy, stupid” as a campaign theme. (snip) Rather than listen to the nay-sayers on cable news, use your own eyes. Look at crowd sizes and enthusiasm as a better metric than opinion polls which oversample Democrats, the same polls that predicted a Clinton landslide victory.

New York City Mayor de Blasio’s wife has rejected the results of a public vote calling for a statue of Mother Cabrini (pictured), a Catholic saint, and instead opted to honor other “women,” including two drag queens. Chirlane McCray, the mayor’s wife, launched a “She Built NYC” program and invited the public to vote on the names of women they want the city to recognize with a statue. Mother Cabrini got more votes than any other woman (219), yet McCray’s panel rejected the public’s choice. Without explanation, McCray decided on a group of people that were nowhere near the top choices picked by New Yorkers, including the two drag queens who founded

Perhaps when you think of the founding of the United States, you think of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Federalist Papers. Now, the New York Times wants to "reframe" your understanding of the nation's founding. In the Times' view (which it hopes to make the view of millions of Americans), the country was actually founded in 1619, when the first Africans were brought to North America, to Virginia, to be sold as slaves. This year marks the 400th anniversary of that event, and the Times has created something called the 1619 Project. This is what the paper hopes the project will accomplish:
