LAUSANNE, Switzerland — U.S. Women’s National Team and Seattle Reign FC star Megan Rapinoe responded Friday to the new guidelines from the International Olympic Committee on political protests at the 2020 Tokyo Games. “So much being done about the protests. So little being done about what we are protesting about. We will not be silenced,” Rapinoe wrote on an Instagram story Friday. The IOC published guidelines Thursday specifying which types of athlete protests will not be allowed at the 2020 Tokyo Games. Athletes are prohibited by the Olympic Charter's Rule 50 from taking a political stand n the field of

In a sane world, she would immediately be dropped from the US Olympic Team. Then she can protest to her hearts content.

Disciplinary action should include for violation of the rules, being stripped of any medals, ejection from the games and banishment from all future games plus a $100,000.00 fine per player involved. Protest that rainbow girls.

Some people are just never happy, and nothing angers them more than anything inhibiting their ability to nag everyone about it. Hey Megan why not relax, cheer up a bit and enjoy playing soccer while you’re young. We can all read about your DWI arrest ten years from now, when you’re old and even more bitter at life than you already are.

The NFL got woke; maybe it's time for the IOC to become rational. Wouldn't it be just a hoot if the POTUS of the US decided it was too dangerous for ''our athletes'' to participate? Of course, each little sportlette could fund itself to the games.

I see the chairman of the International Brotherhood of Mouthy Lesbians is warming up for 2020. The whole point of the Olympics was for countries to put aside political issues and come together, even if for only a short time, just for the sake of peaceful athletic competition. Now, every Tom, Dick and Rapinoe has a cause for which they won't be silent, thereby ruining the party for everyone. I hope your clocks get thoroughly cleaned.

This is like the rules for the U.S. military. When you are in uniform, you represent the U.S., so no political statements. On your on time, whatever you want to say, as long as it is not sedition or treason. I think this apply to football players in uniform, too. It's pretty simple.

Megan and her ilk want to use the stage created by the sports organization she plays for to be the amplifier for her Leftism. However, it's not HER stage. After the games, as a private citizen, she can go anywhere she wants to and say anything she wants to. The problem is, not many will bother to listen. So many women have worked so hard to promote their various sports. Now, what happened to the NFL, people tuning out because of the player's antics, can happen to women's sports as well. You won't change many minds Megan. You will just make people dislike you and tune you, and your sport, out. No one wants to or has to listen to you. I'm sure all the others in your sport are going to be really appreciative of you sabotaging their sport and careers.

After a while Rappin'-Hoe will actually have to get a JOB. The Olympic players have a pretty good party going. They should kick out the Rappin'-Hoe before she drops a Feces in the Punch Bowl.

They’ve been told not to talk to the media, keep their mourning as private as possible and even publicly praise the regime that mistakenly shot down their loved ones’ airliner. The families of the Iran plane crash victims — most of them Canadians or heading to Canada — are still in the depths of mourning for their relatives. But that hasn’t stopped Tehran from closely monitoring and harassing family living in the country, using release of the victims’ remains as leverage, various sources allege.

WASHINGTON – Author and liberal commentator Van Jones had "high expectations" for the seventh Democratic debate, but he said what he saw on the stage in Des Moines, Iowa, was "dispiriting" because none of the candidates appeared capable of defeating President Donald Trump. "Democrats have to do better than what we saw tonight. There was nothing I saw tonight that would be able to take Donald Trump out.

OTTAWA - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Monday that the victims of the Ukrainian airliner shot down in Iran would still be alive if the recent escalation of tensions in the region had not happened, according to a transcript of an interview with Global News TV. The U.S. killing of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad in a Jan. 3 drone strike prompted Iran to launch a missile attack on Iraqi bases housing U.S. troops on Jan. 8, hours before the passenger jet was shot down. All 176 aboard were killed, including 57 Canadians. "I think if there were

A Democratic presidential campaign field that was once touted as the most diverse in history has been whittled down to six candidates on its debate stage, all of them white. For Oakland Democratic Rep. Barbara Lee, that’s a problem. Lee says the Democratic National Committee’s rules for determining who can participate in its presidential debates is “systematically discriminatory” against people of color. To qualify for Tuesday’s debate in Iowa, a candidate had to receive contributions from 225,000 donors nationally and receive at least 7% support in two polls from the early-voting states — Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina

WASHINGTON — Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Wednesday that two House chairmen who led President Donald Trump's impeachment inquiry will be among the House prosecutors for Trump's Senate trial. They are Democrats Rep. Adam Schiff, chair of the Intelligence Committee, and Rep. Jerry Nadler, chair of the Judiciary Committee. Trump was impeached by the Democratic-led House last month on charges of abuse of power over his pressure on Ukraine to investigate Democratic rival Joe Biden as Trump withheld aid from the country. He was also charged with obstructing Congress’ ensuing probe.

You’ve probably never heard of the most economically transformative legislation of the Trump era. Granted, it has not yet passed and it might not pass. If it does, it would affect a large portion of Americans, but hardly all of them, unlike the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. And its potential effects are hotly contested by policy advocates, politicians, and economists. Still, California Senate Bill 50, winding its way through the state legislature again this month, could generate tens of thousands of new jobs and billions of dollars of new investment, reshaping the geography of the biggest state and solving a large chunk of the cost-of-living crisis

Denmark was hailed as the best place to start a family because of its 'generous maternity and paternity leave policies', as well as free healthcare and education.

When the Democratic debate started Tuesday night, I was young, carefree, merry. Two hours later, when it ended, I was praying to the Almighty for a swift end to my suffering. I felt like I was 103 years old — or even older, like one of the early patriarchs in the Bible. All the life had been sucked out of my body. This, the seventh debate in seven months, was the dullest major political event in years. And there is no excuse for that, since there were only six candidates on stage and, therefore, a real possibility that the Democrats could ­explore their differences with one another and draw sharp divisions.
