So, Kaepernick Lied

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 7/7/2020 3:47:13 PM

Back in our cheery, prelapsarian days—2016, to be exact—a young and photogenic NFL quarterback named Colin Kaepernick chose to express his patriotism by kneeling whenever the National Anthem was played before football games. He kneeled, you see, merely to protest police mistreatment of African Americans. And we knew that Kaepernick actually loved America because he told us so. “I’m not anti-America,” he said. “I love America…. I think having these conversations helps everybody have a better understanding of where everybody is coming from.” And everyone bought it.

In a nutshell, the world owes Colin Kaepernick absolutely nothing. He blew what might have been a decent and fairly lucrative career. (Let´s face it, he was never a great player anyway.) Instead, no one wants anything to do with him, now that he´s made himself radioactive toxic. I think the NFL owners, the NFL commisioner, and (most) NFL players deserve one another.

I believe Colin is 'whipped' (I can't use the full term, or Lucianne will block me) and does whatever she tells him to do or say. But it is interesting that this horrible country and horrible capitalism are making him one rich halfrican.

A lady in my community was adopted from another country many decades ago. She has nothing but love and respect for the couple who adopted her. Several years ago the adoptee interviewed her parents about the adoption. It was quite touching! It's too bad that CK doesn't have respect for the people who adopted him and raised him. Although, I'm surprised that CK hasn't changed his name to something to match his disposition.

Now that the Supreme Court has vouchsafed the power of a state to require its presidential electors to vote in line with their state’s popular vote, a new question glimmers in the constitutional mist: Could a state require its electors to vote against the wishes of the state’s own voters? That might seem a ridiculous question. Feature, though, the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. It’s a workaround designed to commit the states to use the Electoral College to deliver the presidency to the winner of the national popular vote. It’s the first thing that came to mind when the Supreme Court today unanimously concluded

From the moment I first saw a helicopter land in the rice fields of my small town in the Philippines when I was a kid, I was captivated. I wanted to fly. I never thought I’d ever get to fly anything but the homemade kites we used to make out of cement bags and bamboo sticks. Then I got an amazing, life-changing gift: opportunity. When I was about 10 years old, my mom brought me to the United States. She had come to the U.S. many years before with only about $200 in her pocket when she stepped off the plane. She made a life for herself,
Joe Biden, part of the problem since 1973 1 reply

You gotta love Joe Biden. The guy has been part of the problem in Washington for 47 years. But now? Now, he is really going to get after it! Finally, the old geezer promises to fix everything that ails you — everything he has neglected for nearly five decades. And he is going to do it all in just four years. After he is gone, Mr. Biden’s Wikipedia page will say: “1973-2021: Accomplished nothing in Washington; hung out with segregationists. 2021-2025: Fixed everything; saved world.” Economic doldrums of the Obama non-recovery economy got you down? Joe Biden will tackle that.

There are many dumb genres of American journalism, and it is difficult to say which is truly and finally the dumbest, unless we consider Jonathan Chait’s output a genre unto itself. But, short of taking that drastic step, the “As a One-Armed Paper-Hanger” essay may take the booby prize. The “As a One-Armed Paper-Hanger” essay is based on a claim of special standing to speak to a particular issue. That special standing is based on an experience, usually traumatic or familial, that is in no way related to actual expertise. “As Someone Who Is Dying of Leukemia, Here Is What I Think About Health-Care Reform,” “As the Mother of a Child

The Justice Department announced that it has unearthed further information related to the FBI’s investigation of retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, including more notes taken by fired special agent Peter Strzok. Michael Sherwin, the acting U.S. attorney in the nation’s capital, said Tuesday that the documents handed over to Flynn’s defense team included handwritten notes from Strzok taken at a meeting on Jan. 25, 2017; notes from former Deputy Assistant Attorney General Tashina Gauhar at the same meeting; an internal DOJ document dated Jan. 30, 2017; and handwritten notes from then-acting Attorney General Dana Boente which were dated March 30, 2017. The notes remain sealed by the court.

It is more than a possibility, and slightly less than a likelihood, that Joe Biden will be elected president in November. Biden has made it clear that a woman will be his running mate. What is becoming equally apparent is that he may be cornered into choosing a socialist or progressive as that person. As he runs his campaign from his basement, allowing President Trump to stomp his feet and shout as he tries to mount a more traditional campaign, Biden has shown little inclination to take on his own foot-stomping base.

America will be running on a little less Dunkin'. The major coffee and doughnut chain announced it will be permanently closing 450 stores by the end of 2020. Though the locations that will be closing are all reportedly located inside Speedway gas stations, and not free-standing cafes. The big news comes as part of termination of the coffee shop's partnership with Hess, owner of Speedway gas stations, Today Food reported. A representative for Dunkin' did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News, but told Today Food in a statement that the brand is closing the Speedway Dunkin' cafes in order to focus on the chain's independent locations.

Philonise Floyd testified recently to the House Judiciary Committee about the death of his brother George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. “People of all backgrounds, genders and race have come together to demand change,” Floyd said. Pleading for comprehensive policing reform, Floyd asked Congress to “teach them what it means to treat people with empathy and respect. Teach them what necessary force is. Teach them that deadly force should be used rarely and only when life is at risk.” Unfortunately, Philonise Floyd’s earnest call for reform has been drowned out by an elite-driven narrative about race relations that is empirically weak, counterproductive, and not reflective

The current rage for tearing down statues and renaming things has reached a sort of reductio ad absurdum: the city of Columbus, Ohio has removed the statue of Christopher Columbus from in front of its City Hall. The Wall Street Journal reports: The city of Columbus, Ohio, this week unceremoniously evicted a 16-foot bronze statue . . . of Christopher Columbus. “For many people in our community, the statue represents patriarchy, oppression and divisiveness,” said Mayor Andrew Ginther, giving the removal order two weeks ago. “That does not represent our great city.”

If Illinois Senator Tammy Duckworth eventually becomes Joe Biden’s vice presidential nominee, pundits and historians will look back to Independence Day weekend for the moment when her campaign jumped from insider gossip to mainstream appeal. Duckworth has long been considered an outside contender for the vice presidency. Her resumé is a Democratic dream: a combat veteran of the Iraq War, Duckworth sacrificed her legs in service to her country. After entering the House of Representatives in 2006 — flipping a Republican district long held by the abhorrent Henry Hyde, no less — Duckworth established herself as a progressive legislator and

The US drone strike that killed Qassem Soleimani, Iran’s top general, and nine other people was a violation of international law, according to the UN special rapporteur on extrajudicial killing. Washington failed to provide enough evidence of an ongoing or imminent attack against its interests to justify the strike on Soleimani’s convoy as it left Baghdad airport, Agnes Callamard said Monday. The strike violated the UN Charter, she wrote in a report that calls for accountability for targeted killings by armed drones and for greater regulation of the weapons.(Snip) But absent an actual imminent threat to life, the course of action taken
