Mistake Number 1: Attending a soccer game. Mistake Number 2: Watching a soccer game. Mistake Number 3: Thinking soccer is a sport appreciated by Americans.

i don't mean to sound "racist", but how many members of the league are not-native born Americans or naturalized citizens? Mayhaps, they have little or no regard for American history or its culture. It is what it is.

I read in the last several days of the Portland, OR MLS team being a favorite of the local anitifa crowd. They pack an area of the stadium and are particularly obnoxious and combative. With soccer less than interesting to most Americans, it looks to be a natural fit for those hating our country.

Symbol of hate groups? Name them. The Betsy Ross flag is a legitimate US Flag and can be flow as same as the 50 star flag of today. That would be from the mast of a US Navy ship, or behind the President of the United States. And here is the one to get the hackles up - so is the Gadsden flag - the "Don't Tread on Me" flag. Stupidity is not confined to the NFL.

Former Vice President Joe Biden is known to be a bit…handsy at times. There are the biker chick photo and the various allegations of downright odd behavior, like reportedly smelling a lieutenant governor candidate’s hair, which created some controversy at the outset of his 2020 candidacy. Yet, there was never going to be any accountability. He’s the Democrats’ best hope to beat Trump in 2020, and even his past accusers said that his actions, while creepy, shouldn’t disqualify him from running. So, that’s the Democratic Party for you.

President Trump's Twitter feed is vulnerable to being hacked by a foreign power or other adversary, according to a Washington Examiner investigation of cybersecurity measures in place to protect his account. When Trump logs on to his Twitter account, an authentication code is sent in a text message to a senior aide’s cellphone, a step that could allow for the same type of intrusion as last week’s hack of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.But while Dorsey’s Twitter account spewed racism for 18 minutes, the stakes are much higher for Trump, whose feed can move markets and threaten world peace. “A hack of this President’s Twitter account would be especially dangerous because
