Nike co-founder Phil Knight declares war
on Democrats in Oregon

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 10/16/2022 9:14:24 PM

Nike co-founder Phil Knight says he will do anything to block Democrats from keeping their hold on Oregon's gubernatorial seat Saturday. Knight, 84, has poured cash into the campaigns of Democrat Tina Kotek's opponents in the governors race. He helped to kickstart a campaign from Betsy Johnson, a former Democrat running as an independent, who is serving as a major spoiler for Kotek. Johnson's candidacy is giving Republican Christinze Drazan the opportunity she needs in a liberal electorate no longer confident in the state's recent far-left policies.

V-e-r-y i-n-t-e-r-e-s-t-i-n-g (laugh-in style) The tide has turned. Becoming un-woke might have ramifications. I doubt there will be less desire for the 'wokes' to have Nike items. (I work for a big box retailer. Nike was removed from the stores. Too much of it was 'disappearing.')

Everyone, including so-called ‘woke’ corporations, have had enough of the Democrats and their soul destroying BS. This midterm election will be their comeuppance and their punishment for Pelosi and Schumer letting the Leftist lunatics and the utterly evil, incompetent Biden Administration take control of their Party. They deserve every bit of it and I pray it’s permanent.

Betsy Johnson looks like a nasty woman in all the ads I have seen of her. We don't need a continuation of Kate Brown's jackboots. They must be really scared that with all the decades of practiced fraud, they are in danger of losing the governorship. Plus we might gain some republicans for congress as well.

unless Drazan takes complete control of the governing of that state, she still has to deal with the legislature which is probably made up of mostly communists, so she's got her work cut out for herself

Ever heard of splitting the vote? This is smoke and mirrors to defeat Drazan. Drazan a fiscal and constitutional republican, Johnson a 50/50 mix mostly liberal, and Kotex a fiercely liberal dyke to outshine the outgoing Kate. Booooo on you Phil to reform our state to kitzenhopper level.

Hey all, the article says Phil Knight is a co-founder of Nike. It does not give any indication that he is still affiliated with the company. So, Nike is still Nike. Don’t expect they will change.

Please excuse the second post. Just over 20 years ago, Nike marketed one dozen Tiger Woods golf balls that were packaged in a commemorative tin box. Facts about Tiger’s record breaking performances were printed on the golf ball sleeves. The retail price was $30. There was a fine print disclaimer stamped on the box that read —- Not approved for USGA play. In other words, the golf balls were fake. For this fraud, I thought Nike deserved to be heavily fined by the FTC.

White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain praised Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday for supporting Ukraine in combating Russian aggression. Klain said McConnell has been the one of the administration’s “strongest supporters” in voicing support for Ukraine and its fight against Russian President Vladimir Putin’s aggression, arguing that condemning the war should not be a partisan issue. “We are planning to work with a Democratic House and a Democratic Senate next year, that’s our plan,” Klain said on “Morning Joe.”

MSNBC’s Joy Reid accused Florida Governor Ron DeSantis of bringing back the days of Jim Crow by making it more difficult for black people to vote in his state, a smear that has been often used against Republicans and the laws put into place in states to restore voter confidence after the 2020 election. On Wednesday’s edition of “The ReidOut,” the race-obsessed host launched into an attack on the Sunshine State Republican who is perhaps even more feared and loathed by her party than former President Donald J. Trump and who represents a formidable threat to their power on a national level if he chooses to run for president in 2024.

The creator of a nuclear war simulator has said it is "critical" that the public understands the nature of the threat posed by atomic weapons. Tensions between the West and Russia rose significantly after President Vladimir Putin launched his invasion of Ukraine in February and worsened as the West began supplying Ukrainian forces with urgently needed military aid. While it is not clear if Russian President Vladimir Putin would go so far as to use nuclear weapons, despite his recent threats about deploying them, the escalation of the Ukraine conflict has led to increased discussions about the potential outbreak of a nuclear war.

If you thought left-wing media outlets were merely biased against Republicans, think again. MSNBC is openly spewing dangerous propaganda on its airwaves and trafficking hate against MAGA voters with no pushback from its hosts or executive brass. During a recent TV appearance on MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House” show with host Nicolle Wallace, former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele, a RINO (Republican in name only) political analyst with the network, compared MAGA Republicans to “lice,” “fleas” and “blood-sucking ticks” whom potential GOP House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) would have to “lay down with” should conservatives win the majority in the upcoming midterm elections.

He may be the first person ever running for president who seemed to have a habit of insulting voters when they asked him questions that he didn’t like, including calling voters “lying dog-faced pony soldier” and “look, fat,” as well as telling another voter he was lying and “full of sh**” before saying that he should “take him outside.” Biden showed that temper again when he was challenged earlier about whether his continued release from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve was “political” to help Democrats in the election.

Journalists and other left-wing activists are freaking out over a New York Times poll that shows Republicans leading Democrats by 4 percentage points among likely voters ahead of next month's midterm elections. They were particularly aggrieved by the poll's finding that Republicans were tied with Democrats at 47 percent among female voters and were supported by 34 percent of Hispanic voters and 18 percent of black voters. Those are terrible numbers for Democrats. We don't know how the election is going to play out, but at least one thing is guaranteed: If Democrats lose, they are going to blame everyone but themselves for the outcome.

The situation began when the Daily Signal reported that two girls who are members of the Randolph High School’s volleyball team asked the boy, who identifies as a girl, to leave the locker room after he made an inappropriate comment.
