Perhaps more time practicing soccer rather than social justice warrior work would have yielded a different result? Maybe next time we send soccer players instead of SJW's?

BTW, one of the first things I learned when competing in karate is that if you go into the match with a negative attitude, it will negatively affect your performance. We saw that happen when the football players started kneeling - they went into the game angry and bitter and paid the price for it. Same thing happening here.

The USA did not have a women's soccer team representing it at the Olympics this year. There was a women's soccer team there that came from the USA, but it hates this country and all the good things this country stands for so much that it could not represent the USA in any way. And, because of that, an awful lot of Americans were rooting for this faux women's team to lose. Myself included!!! I truly hope they are so disillusioned now that they don't even pull off the bronze. They don't deserve it!!!

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell said he directed the removal of his company's advertisements from Fox News programming after the network declined to run one of his commercials. The ad he sought to have aired promotes his cyber symposium event that will discuss the 2020 election. Lindell has repeatedly asserted the election was fraudulent, claiming Dominion Voting Systems machines were manipulated to steal votes from former President Donald Trump. Election officials and the company have rejected the claims. Lindell asserted the commercial would not discuss claims of election fraud, according to the Wall Street Journal, but he has said the event will prove election fraud.

The federal government provides tens of millions of dollars each year to a nonprofit group that supports the movement to defund police departments and dismantle the criminal justice system. Officials with the Brooklyn-based Vera Institute of Justice have urged the government to "radically dismantle" police departments in order to fix a system they say dehumanizes people of color. The institute is heavily funded by the federal government. So far this fiscal year, the Department of Justice, Department of Health and Human Services, and other agencies have awarded the Vera Institute more than $89 million in contracts and grants.

President Biden's Justice Department warned states on Wednesday that they could face legal action in rolling back COVID-era voting procedures. "The department's enforcement policy does not consider a jurisdiction’s re-adoption of prior voting laws or procedures to be presumptively lawful; instead, the department will review a jurisdiction’s changes in voting laws or procedures for compliance with all federal laws regarding elections, as the facts and circumstances warrant," reads a document released by DOJ. It proceeds to outline a long list of statutory protections on voting rights, including those surrounding mail-in voting.

President Joe Biden hopes to rein in supposed unfair practices in the railroad and ocean shipping industries as part of a sweeping executive order addressing competitiveness.The order will be issued in the coming days and will encourage the federal agencies regulating railroads and ocean shipping to take various actions that the White House believes will promote competition and lower prices for U.S. consumers, a source familiar with the plans told the Washington Examiner.[snip] The executive order on competition is broad in nature and doesn’t just address railroads and ocean shipping but is an attempt to target the biggest businesses while encouraging more competition.  CORRECTION*

The Biden administration’s Executive Office of the President (EOP) has 560 employees and a payroll of close to $50 million — the highest of any administration in at least 12 years, according to data released Thursday. While President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are making their legally specified annual salaries of $400,000 and $235,100, respectively, more than 250 other officials are making at least six figures this year. White House press secretary Jen Psaki, for example, is one of 22 West Wing employees pulling in a taxpayer-funded salary of $180,000.

Vice President Kamala Harris has finally announced her intentions to visit the US-Mexico border after former President Trump made his plans to tour the border with Texas Governor Greg Abbott. Harris will be in El Paso, Texas, on Friday, June 25. She will be attended by Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, according to Politico. While countless media outlets and 56 GOP lawmakers have chastised Harris for not going to the border, despite being tasked with dealing with the border and immigration crisis by her boss President Joe Biden, it appears to have taken Trump's announcement to light a fire until the VP.

President Joe Biden is weighing vaccines mandates for interstate travel, according to the Associated Press (AP) on Thursday. “Still, while more severe [coronavirus] measures — such as mandating vaccines for interstate travel or changing how the federal government reimburses treatment for those who are unvaccinated and become ill with COVID-19 — have been discussed,” the AP writes, “the administration worried that they would be too polarizing for the moment.” For the time being, the White House seems content with shaming those who are unvaccinated, while demanding private companies mandate vaccinations for their employees. For instance, Biden told churchgoers April 1, they were being ungodly if they did not become vaccinated.

The Taliban have retaken 12 provincial Afghanistan capitals following the U.S. military’s secretive overnight withdrawal from Bagram Airfield earlier this year (U.S. officials didn’t even notify the base’s new Afghan commander before silently slipping away, leaving the official to discover for himself, nearly two hours after the fact, that the Americans had Irish Goodbye’d after nearly 20 years of occupation).Since the May 1 departure, the Taliban have captured 69 of the country's 407 districts, including ones American and Afghan officials previously considered impenetrable government strongholds against the terrorist group. In total,

The Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine has issued guidelines that suggest employing such terms as “chestfeeding,” “human milk feeding,” and “parent’s milk” to promote what it calls “gender-inclusive language.” The ABM position statement on “infant feeding and lactation-related language and gender,” co-authored by eight doctors and the academy, said that “the use of de-sexed or gender-inclusive language is appropriate in many settings.” “ABM recognizes that not all people who give birth and lactate identify as female, and that some of these individuals identify as neither female nor male,” said the four-page document posted July 29. Suggested “gender-inclusive terms” for “breastfeeding” include “chestfeeding, lactating,

Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Thursday that he can't rule out people having to have COVID-19 booster shots indefinitely as the virus continues to surge. Fauci, the chief medical advisor to the president, made his comments in an interview with Anderson Cooper on CNN in which he also warned that fully vaccinated people with so-called breakthrough infections can still get long-term COVID. 'We know a lot more than we did to start, but there's obviously, you know, we need to be humble in the face of this virus,' Fauci said.

The adult LGBTQ population in the United States reported living in households facing much higher levels of food insecurity when compared to non-LGBTQ adults, according to data recently released by the Census Bureau. Of the more than 64,000 people who responded to a recent survey by the bureau, 13.1% of LGBTQ adults reported living in a household “where there was sometimes or often not enough to eat in the past seven days,” compared to 7.2% non-LGBTQ adults. The latest version of the Household Pulse Survey, which measures household experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic, also included questions about respondents’ sexual orientation and gender identity.

MSNBC’s The ReidOut host Joy Reid continued on her warpath against conservatives and Republicans while poisoning her left-wing viewership, telling them on Thursday that their right-of-center coworkers, family members, and friends possess “nonsensical, homicidal arguments” that lack “a really strong feeling about staying alive…and keeping their kids alive” amidst the coronavirus pandemic. And, of course, Reid had plenty of help in the form of dutiful guests who saw little reason to disagree with her dangerous rhetoric.

Persistent claims that leftist congresswoman Ilhan Omar married her own brother to get around US immigration laws may be legitimized by what appears to be a conclusive DNA test. The results of the test assert that there is a 99.999998% chance that Omar and her second husband Ahmed Elmi are siblings. The report, drawn up by Endeavor DNA Laboratories does not name either Omar or Elmi, instead referring to them as 'Sibling 1' and 'Sibling 2.' understands that Omar is Sibling 1. It says that Sibling 1's sample was garnered from a cigarette butt and Sibling 2's from a drinking straw.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Minneapolis police will no longer stop motorists for minor traffic violations, such as expired tabs or an air freshener hanging from their rearview mirror, according to a new policy change. Police Chief Medaria Arrandondo, in an internal memo Thursday, said the move comes after examining how officers can better use time and resources. “MPD will no longer be conducting traffic stops solely for these offenses: expired tabs, an item dangling from a mirror, or not having a working license plate light,” Arradondo wrote in the memo obtained by the Star Tribune. Critics have long argued that low-level traffic
