Tony Clark, the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA) executive director, says that he wants the league to discuss pulling the All-Star Game from Georgia now that the state’s election integrity bill has become law. The 91st MLB All-Star is scheduled for July 13 at SunTrust Park in Atlanta, Georgia. Though, with the new election law enacted, Clark thinks it is time to discuss possibly punishing the Peach State. “Players are very much aware” of the Georgia voting bill, Clark told the Boston Globe.

Did somebody die and make in the official extortion god? These liberals deserve to be canceled. Repeat after me: FREE COUNTRY... legislated by laws!!! If you don't like those laws, quit trying to murder people, cities and states (like Georgia) - those who threaten, slander and persecute to get their way - deserve a one way ticket to a marxist country, that is their just reward... they'll find comrades there!

Like the players care! 80% of them come from Latin America and can’t, or shouldn’t vote! The game has gotten boring due to its length because of all the commercials, so it’s a waste of four hours of your life. And why are they making this political in the first place? Every time I turn around, some twit is protesting something. Tony Clark can go jump in a lake. I’m really tired of this crap.

Is there a chance that anyone from MLB has read I r even knows what is actually in the bill besides what their Democrat pals told them? Any person with half a brain who had actually looked at the bill would easily see that once again, the Democrats are making things up.

Show some real guts, Tony. Demand the end of any MLB franchise in Red states, the ones that voted Trump in '20 and support hate and insurrection. Give that a whirl. I'm pretty sure that American players opposed to democracy and honest elections can easily defect to professional ball year round for $15 a month, same as sugar cane cutters and doctors make.

Kamala’s Husband Hosts the Virtual

After twenty minutes of dead air, Biden's Virtual Passover got underway. Biden, who can only be counted on to remain coherent for short stretches of time before launching into a random tirade, only showed up briefly. And that was the only good thing about Virtual Passover. Virtual Passover, like the Biden administration, makes no sense. But the Biden administration can’t be expected to ruin every aspect of our lives, without also ruining Passover. Kamala Harris had been delegated to take over the border crisis, and so her husband, Brentwood entertainment lawyer, Douglas Emhoff, took over the job of ruining Passover.

A Christian pastor has filed a federal lawsuit against Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Vice President Kamala Harris after his request to hold a Good Friday vigil on the grounds of the Capitol was denied. He alleges that the denial prevents him from exercising his right to free speech, with the barricades essentially creating a 'no-speech zone.' Patrick Mahoney, a Presbyterian reverend from Virginia, said in his Tuesday complaint that his 30-plus-year-long tradition of holding the service on the Lower Western Terrace was denied this year by the Capitol Hill Police Department.

Supreme Court case could change the

A Supreme Court case being argued this week amid March Madness could erode the difference between elite college athletes and professional sports stars. If the former college athletes who brought the case win, colleges could end up competing for talented student athletes by offering over-the-top education benefits worth tens of thousands of dollars. And that could change the nature of college sports. At least that’s the fear of the NCAA. But the former athletes who sued say most college athletes will never play professional sports and that the NCAA’s rules capping education benefits deprive them of the ability to be rewarded for their athletic talents and hard work.

In 2019, I noted that a majority of white Democrats had become non-Christian. "In Obama's first year in office, 68% of white Democrats described themselves as Christians, 7% claimed to be members of other faiths, and 24% said that they had no religious affiliation. A decade later, only 47% of white Democrats call themselves Christians. 10% are members of other faiths, and 42% have no religion." [SNIP] 20 years ago, 71% of Democrats were members of a church. A decade later, in the Obama years, it fell to 60% and is now down to 46%.

Parents and male students were left 'mortified' after their school forced them to stand in assembly and apologise to their female classmates for sexual assaults committed by males. Brauer College in the south-western Victorian town of Warrnambool held an assembly on Wednesday where boys were told to stand up in a symbolic gesture of apology to girls and women. The move has since sparked outrage among parents of the school who say their children were made to feel ashamed about something they had no control over and didn't understand. Brauer College student Craig Daniels told the Today show the assembly was 'wrong' and should 'never have happened'.

A new poll indicates that Americans are giving President Biden a big thumbs up on dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.But when it comes to the divisive issue of immigration and border security, the survey suggests that the president's approval rating plummets. Just a third of Americans questioned in an NPR/Marist poll released on Tuesday say they approve of Biden's handling of the issue of immigration, with 53% saying they disapprove of his performance. While two-thirds of Democrats say they approve of how Biden has handled the issue in the first two months of his presidency, approval plunges to 27% among independents and to just 5% among Republicans.
