GENEVA -- American cyclist Quinn Simmons was suspended by the Trek-Segafredo team on Thursday after posting antagonistic comments on social media in support of President Donald Trump. The 2019 junior road race world champion replied to a journalist from the Netherlands who had criticized Trump on Twitter. ''Regrettably, team rider Quinn Simmons made statements online that we feel are divisive, incendiary, and detrimental to the team, professional cycling, its fans, and the positive future we hope to help create for the sport,'' Trek-Segafredo said in a statement. ''(He) will not be racing for Trek-Segafredo until further notice.'' The 19-year-old rider Wednesday

And people wonder why Trump supporters don't tell pollsters the truth. The hatred is astounding.

A self-righteous bicycle club! The absolute hatred that the Left posesses should be a wake up call for everyone who is decent and just. THis is a clear case of abuse of constitutional rights. Where in the hell does it say in this organization that you can't back a certain candidate? I hope Quinn flattens all their tires before he leaves lol.

He wrote “bye” in response to some journalist’s post saying if you support Trump you can go! Insane. I’m actually in the market for a new bike, probably $3k - $4k, but now it won’t be a Trek.

Notice it's not for his political opinions, but because in their view "made statements online that we feel are divisive, incendiary, and detrimental to the team" After all, it's illegal to discriminate for political affiliation, but not necessarily how the comments might be interpreted in anyone's view who doesn't like those comments, it seems. Does anyone ever report people on the Left who've made incendiary or divisive comments?

"Bye" and "that's right" are both right-wing, racist terms. • "Bye" is short for "God be with you" - - and any mention of God is an attack on science. • "That's right" implies that there is right and there is wrong - - and that's a white concept - - and it shows pure hatred against persons of color. So - - he's lucky he's only being suspended from a bicycle team. If there were true racial justice he would be suspended from a gallows. I know I'm right. Bye!

13, taking a knee during an official game on company, sponsor and fan time is very different than posting online on one's own time. The first is an official statement by the entire team of support for that political position if the team lets it happen. The second is first amendment protected speech.

Trek doesn't own the team or manage it, they sponsor it, just like US Postal Service didn't own the team Lance rode with. As the money bag, Trek could reverse this suspension overnight. Trek needs to make a public statement on this. Then we can decide how much Trek should be punished by the buying public.

I just contacted Trek bicycles at this site and told them that this was un-American, obnoxious, unfair and totalitarian. I was firm that any athlete should be able to support the President of the USA without being fired, especially when he does it in such a low key, non-confrontational, non-aggressive way. Take a moment to send a comment. Perhaps we can get Mr. Simmons out of the leftist doghouse. https://www.trekbikes.com/us/en_US/contactUs/

FTA: ... the team added that Simmons ''was not suspended because of his political views. He was suspended for engaging in conversation on Twitter in a way that we felt was conduct unbefitting a Trek athlete.'' I do not believe them. It is obviously politically motivated. It is truly straining at a gnat and beneath contempt to find the color of an emoji offensive enough to destroy the life and career of a talented 19 year old athlete. You REALLY had to be looking hard for something offensive in the actions of this young man.

California’s 21st Congressional District was the last district to be called in the 2018 election, with Democrat T.J. Cox defeating incumbent Republican David Valadao one month after election day. In a year of crazy election news, their rematch has become even more chaotic. (Snip) But in less than two years in Congress, Cox has amassed quite a reputation for corruption. He had falsely listed two homes, including one in Maryland, as his primary residence, against federal tax rules. Both the Internal Revenue Service and the state of California filed liens against Cox for a total of $175,000 in unpaid taxes.

Poll after poll may give Democratic nominee Joe Biden the advantage next month, but Democrats still have some fears. While Democrats have made voter registration and flat-out voting a major message throughout their pushes for Biden, Republicans have still so far been winning the voter registration game. Democrats haven't publicly acknowledged their shortcomings, but at least one is privately sounding the alarm, Thomas B. Edsall relays in an opinion column for The New York Times. Both national and swing-state polls continue to give Biden an advantage over President Trump this November, with FiveThirtyEight's presidential tracker showing Biden with an 87

MIAMI — NBC has been rocked by an internal feud over its decision to host a town hall with Donald Trump at the same time as ABC’s Thursday event with Joe Biden, a scheduling move that critics contend is a gift to the president after he refused to participate in a debate originally scheduled for Thursday. The internal conflict extends to the highest levels of NBCUniversal, where MSNBC head Phil Griffin strongly disagreed with NBC News President Noah Oppenheim’s decision to unilaterally move forward with the town hall during that time slot, according to three high-ranking sources at the TV

In the buttoned-down field of survey research, Warren Mitofsky is remembered as something of a legend. In the 1960s, he developed the exit poll for CBS News, a technique in which voters are interviewed as they leave polling places. Mitofsky, who died in 2006, also helped initiate random-digit dialing by telephone, a randomized sampling method that revolutionized survey-taking and was polling’s gold standard for years.

Schumer defended this move, saying that Barrett’s nomination is “illegitimate, dangerous and unpopular.” There’s no point debating Schumer on these partisan claims. The question is whether the Democrats can block Barrett’s nomination through this ploy.I don’t think they can. A quorum in the full Senate is 51 members. In the Judiciary Committee it’s nine members including two from the minority party.
