Former MLB Star David Wells: Major League
Baseball Losing a Lot of Fans over Political
Stance — ‘They Don’t Want to See That’

Monday on FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” former Major League Baseball pitcher David Wells sounded off on polling, showing a drop in MLB popularity among Republicans after the league decided to move its All-Star Game out of Georgia. The move came in response to new election integrity laws. The two-time World Series champion said changes brought on by “knucklehead” Commissioner Rob Manfred have already turned him off of watching MLB but said the All-Star Game change “put the icing on the cake.” “[M]oving this All-Star Game to Colorado just really put the icing on the cake for me

He is 100 percent right. I don’t care if they NEVER play another NFL, NBA or MLB game. And I am NOT alone. And as more colleges and the EVIL NCAA get more woke, I am caring much less bout college sports. And I am not alone in that either. Wake up idiots before you completely destroy your businesses.

#1 is absolutely correct. He is not alone. We gave up on the NFL and NBA a few years ago. MLB joined them last year. And college sports also joined the "woke" club last year. We are no boycotting (since that is a temporary stoppage). We are done with them. And we don't miss them at all!!!

What's sad is that according to conservative Aubrey Huff, 80% of Major League ballplayers are conservative and hate the PC crap. Not like the NFL and NBA illiterates.

Wells came to San Diego in 2004, hoping to finish up in his hometown. (He didn't) but watching him bat for the first time in a decade was always entertaining. By that point in his career, all he wanted was three pitches near the strike zone so he could get back to the dug-out. On one occasion he even swung at what looked to be a pitch-out.

Start by being more respectful of America, then maybe people will start going and watching again. You allow MLB to get political in one direction, the left, and insult half of America and then you expect people to love you. Not going to happen. I, and a lot of my friends, will not watch sports any time soon. I'm offended, how about that.

The Chinese military’s nuclear capabilities are increasing rapidly and, for the first time, might be primed for use, the U.S. military officer in charge of America’s nuclear arsenal warned Tuesday as he urged Congress to upgrade America’s aging nuclear infrastructure. In an effort to describe how quickly the Chinese nuclear program is advancing, Adm. Charles Richard, the commander of U.S. Strategic Command, told the Senate Armed Services Committee that he had just ordered all briefs on Beijing’s nuclear weapons contain no intelligence information vetted more than one month earlier “because it's probably out of date” that quickly. Richard testified Tuesday that China is capable of accurately deploying nuclear weapons

We learned yesterday that Officer Brian Sicknick died of natural causes. The significance of that admission was not just for Sicknick’s immediate family, some of whom already seem to have known he didn’t die from an attack with a fire extinguisher. The real significance was the way in which this undercut the media’s confident framing of his death as a victim of the Jan. 6 riot. Yesterday, Glenn Greenwald took this occasion to point out how this lie got going and why the media desperately wanted it to be true: So The New York Times on January 8 published an emotionally gut-wrenching but complete fiction that never had any evidence

Swing district Democrats admitted Tuesday that their vote to table the resolution censuring Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) was not an “easy vote,” while others refused to comment after the vote. House Democrats voted along party lines to block House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy’s (R-CA) resolution censuring Waters for her comments over the weekend in which she allegedly incited violence. If the resolution passed through the House, Waters would have likely lost her position as the House Financial Services Committee chair. Even though Democrats did stay in lock-step on this vote, many of them representing districts that Republicans could flip admitted that it was not easy. Others refused

In a bizarre Tuesday press conference following the guilty verdict for former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin in the murder of George Floyd, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) thanked Floyd for “sacrificing” his life, as though it was his choice, and crying out for mother. It was a disgusting display that went completely unmentioned by the evening newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC, though ABC’s World News Tonight was busy falsely claiming Republicans were against police reform. Fortunately, Fox News Prime Time rotational host and Federalist co-founder Ben Domenech wasn’t going to let Pelosi’s gross exploitation of Floyd’s death slide. “[I]t seems to me that the way the totalitarian left

Lebron James “was crying,” Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison was ebullient, and Senator Tim Scott got some facts wrong, but nobody had a stranger reaction to the guilty verdicts in the Derek Chauvin trial than Nancy Pelosi. The Speaker of the House quickly arranged a presser outside on Capitol Hill after the guilty verdicts were read on Tuesday afternoon. Members of Congress were arrayed behind Pelosi as the House Speaker looked prayerfully up to the sky and, in a voice muffled by her mask, said in her treacly way: Thank you, George Floyd, for sacrificing your life for justice. Your name will become synonymous with justice.

In strong comments during the closing arguments in the Derrek Chauvin trial on Monday, Judge Peter Cahill rebuked radical Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA) for calling on Black Lives Matter to be more violent if the jury returned a not guilty verdict. And like clockwork, CBS Evening News framed Judge Cahill as the problem, even the aggressor by claiming he was “lashing out” at Waters and perhaps working with the defense team. Following a segment on the trial’s closing arguments in general, CBS anchor Norah O’Donnell stepped in to defend the radical Congresswoman. “And Jamie, something extraordinary happened after the jury left to deliberate.

Interior Secretary Deb Haaland issued an order Apr. 16 to forbid the bureaus and offices of the Interior Department from applying some of the current guidelines under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), whenever those guidelines differ from rules that predated the Trump administration. The Trump administration completed its revamp of NEPA guidelines in July, and they took effect Sept. 14. President Biden has instructed the White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) to review those changes, possibly a prelude to revoking them. NEPA environmental analyses are obligatory in a great many federal decisions on oil and gas leasing, exploration, and production on federal lands, and decisions on pipelines crossing federal lands.

In the New York Times, David Leonhardt writes about “Irrational COVID Fears.” The subhead: “Why do so many vaccinated people remain fearful?” Oh, I don’t know. Maybe because of constant media hysteria, and the insistence by Dr. Fauci and others that vaccinated people continue to wear masks? That isn’t where Leonhardt is going, of course. He begins with the fact that most people are terrible at objectively assessing risk. That is both true and unfortunate, but not exactly news. It does apply to covid vaccination: The vaccines have nearly eliminated death, hospitalization and other serious Covid illness among people who have received shots.

In the state’s closing argument, a prosecutor said Chauvin kneeled on Floyd’s neck and back for 9 minutes and 29 seconds because of his pride and his ego in the face of concerned bystanders. “He was not going to let these bystanders tell him what to do. He was going to do what he wanted, how he wanted, for as long as he wanted. And there was nothing, nothing they can do about it because he had the authority. He had the power,

House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy moved Tuesday to formally censure Rep. Maxine Waters for her comments urging protesters to 'get more confrontational' depending on the outcome of the Derek Chauvin trial.The House voted to table, or kill, the effort on a party-line 216-210 party line vote. The result was to temporarily set aside an effort that would have served as a high-profile rebuke by the Congress, although lawmakers could still seek other measures. The move led to an immediate vote by Democrats to try to repeal the measure, which they are able to do on a simple majority.

As the Journal contributor noted, they have a reason to feel betrayed.  Believers who care about values, life, and religious liberty continue to find that the new administration has let them down time and time again.

Unlike Maxine Waters’ inciteful comments about “more confrontation,” it is unlikely the jury in the Derek Chauvin trial will hear Joe Biden’s comment this morning praying that the “right verdict” will be rendered because the jury is now sequestered. AP reports: President Joe Biden said Tuesday that he is “praying the verdict is the right verdict” in the trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin and that he believed the case to be “overwhelming.” (Snip) So Biden, who likely only knows the evidence in the case from the mainstream media, is setting up to excuse riots and looting if there is the “wrong verdict.”

After Abbott announced COVID-19 restrictions would end on March 10, President Joe Biden called the decision a “big mistake” and that it reflected “Neanderthal thinking.” A slew of other political figures thought the decision was premature and a way to distract people from the February winter storm and power outage that killed at least 111 Texans. “It is now time to open Texas 100%,”
