Report: NFL Dropping Military Honor Guards
for National Anthem

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 8/25/2020 8:39:14 AM

The NFL is preparing to end the use of military honor guards to present the American flag ahead of the national anthem, according to reports. A league source claims that the policy benching military, federal, and police guards is part of its COVID-19 response, according to Front Office Sports. “They won’t be on the field,” a source told the site. “That could change as the season progresses. But that’s the plan at the beginning.” It appears that there will be no flags on the field and the flag will only appear on electronic scoreboards during the playing of the national anthem, at least for the beginning of the season.

No honor at the National Felons League so no Honor Guard. Is there a problem? Who cares what these overpaid thugs do anyway.

So sad. A sport that professes to be tough and violent can’t stand up to bullies? The loudmouths are large adolescent bullies. Management are wusses.

The professional football season will go out with a whisper. I think the folks who command the honor guards are aware of that fact. In the coming years, when pro football is broadcast, the ratings will dwindle. The left and their hired help will suddenly find a new way of measuring viewers. Not by eyeballs, but by how many truly "woke" are watching. It will then simply become a social credit system. Watch a game? Earn free rap songs, free Colt 45, free tattoos. Soon it after that failure it will be the encouragement of viewers to realize 78 virgins when they die for the cause.

I won't know because I haven't watch a game in five seasons. I couldn't tell you who the Super Bowl champion is that's how little I know about the BLM league. I can say this in a few more seasons that millionaire players will be negotiating to play for 15K a year not millions with no viewers. They'll be playing for and among themselves with no advertisements well maybe Starbucks and Dick's Sporting Goods. I just don't care about the NFL, MLB and the NBA there's nothing that'll bring the angry African warlords back like Lebron James the worst of them all.

“The league is also eliminating or limiting other on-field personnel such as reporters, cheerleaders, photographers, and some medical personnel.“ Since cheerleaders are rarely if ever shown on TV to avoid charges of sexism, no real loss for viewers. Loss of the obligatory female sideline reporter is a plus since this eliminates one of the TV talking heads who believe that we are unable to understand game without 3+ hours of their chatter. Will be interesting if the NFL also bans military flyovers under the pretext of Wuhan virus avoidance.

NFL wanted to charge the military guard presenting the flag money to do that. They have wanted to get rid of the flag for awhile. NFL is not an American group any longer, they are some sort of anti-American group now. Why should people pay hundreds for a ticket to see a game played by people that hate America? Why should people pay to see actors big bucks to see a movie made by people that hate America? It's time to call them out and refuse to participate in their scams.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Wild winds wreaked havoc in Albuquerque, New Mexico during a recent storm. Trees were pulled up from the roots, power went out for thousands — and a port-a-potty was seen blowing down the road. Wait. What? A viewer from sister station KOAT caught the spectacle on camera. The port-a-potty was seen blowing down the street on Sept. 8. At this time, there is no word on where the port-a-potty came from. No injuries were reported, but there’s no word on what kind of mess it made when it finally came to a stop. Watch the video to see it for yourself.

On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump took part in a town hall event produced by ABC News’ “20/20” program called “The President and the People,” which featured undecided voters from across the commonwealth of Pennsylvania asking the president questions. Towards the end of the 90-minute special, a young woman rose from the audience to ask her question — and the way Pres. Trump answered her destroys any narrative the Left could conjure that calls him uncaring or a racist. Host George Stephanopoulos introduced her this way: “The next one comes Flora [sic] Cruceta. She’s from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. She has not voted before because she just became a citizen.

County officials in New Jersey tallied more than 1,600 uncounted ballots from the state’s July primary after finding them in a bin last Thursday. The votes were reportedly placed in a “mislabeled” bin in a “secure area” of the county election office, according to the New Jersey Herald. Sussex County Board of Elections Administrator Marge McCabe maintained that the 1,666 extra votes did not change the outcome of the July 7 primary race. “The Board of Elections is confident that all ballots received have been processed and the security of all the ballots has remained in place,” she said.

Part of what kept the Jacob Blake frenzy alive on the left was the fact that he did not have a gun. The media and their paramilitary fighters on the street imply that the fact that Blake had a knife was inconsequential. To them, he was unarmed. The same thing is happening with Ricardo Munoz's death in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. A police officer shot Munoz when the latter came after him with a knife. In reality, close-contact knife attacks are horrific and are just as deadly as bullets from afar. The facts are uncontested: the police got a call from Munoz's family

Perhaps that book wasn’t such a great idea? John Bolton is now officially under DOJ investigation for possibly leaking classified information in his recent tell-all publication.

The media obviously salivated over Bolton because he was targeting the right person, though they once treated him as the root of all evil and a disgusting warmonger. But Trump has a way of rehabilitating anyone’s image. Now, Bolton may be rethinking whether all those plaudits were worth it.

Has the 19th-century German composer Ludwig van Beethoven become a modern symbol of "exclusion and elitism" for rich, white men? In an article published by Vox on Tuesday that quoted New York Philharmonic clarinetist Anthony McGill, writers Nate Sloan and Charlie Harding argued that the work has been propped up by white, wealthy men, whose embrace of the musical composition stood as a symbol of "their superiority and importance." "For others — women, LGBTQ+ people, people of color — Beethoven’s symphony is predominantly a reminder of classical music’s history of exclusion and elitism," Sloan and Harding wrote.

Approximately 150 pregnant Black and Pacific Islander women in San Francisco will receive a $1,000 monthly supplement during their pregnancies and for the first six months of their babies' lives, the city's mayor announced. Mayor London Breed's (D) office said on Monday that the Abundant Birth Project is the first of its kind in the country. The project's goal is to eventually provide a supplement for as long as two years post-pregnancy. “Providing guaranteed income support to mothers during pregnancy is an innovative and equitable approach that will ease some of the financial stress that all too often keeps women from being able to put their health first,” Breed said.

By now, it’s the worst kept secret in the world that Joe Biden is having cognitive difficulties. (snip) Rush Limbaugh, however, has noticed another piece in the puzzle, and this one yields to empirical evidence rather than first-hand knowledge. This is the fact that, other than the long-ago Democrat debates and his acceptance speech (which may have been live, rather than prerecorded), Biden is never seen at night. (snip) Biden may be suffering from sundowning, something strongly associated with dementia in the elderly, especially with Alzheimer’s. Sundowning is so named because it consistently appears as the sun is setting.

The unidentified black woman got up to use the bathroom at the back of the plane after it landed in Sacramento last week, Fox News reported.

Sen. Ed Markey said Monday that U.S. police officers must uniformly be disarmed of "weapons of war," which according to the senator, include "tear gas, rubber and plastic bullets, and bean bag rounds." Portland Democratic Mayor Ted Wheeler recently issued a ban on the troubled city's police department from using CS gas (also called tear gas) on demonstrators. Every night for the past four months, police officers in Portland have come face-to-face with protestors and rioters demonstrating in favor of racial justice and police reform. Often the clashes have become violent and have been connected to several deaths.

The omission riled royal fans who took to the comments section to say it was 'shady' of family members to 'literally cut Meghan out of the picture'. In response to William and Kate's photo,
