Well folks, it’s going to be a long Sunday. For any of us who thought we’d be able to escape politics and anti-American and anti-Trump BS, forget it.

American football players are taking their “kneeling protest” on the road. Just hours ago across the pond in London, members of the Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars took a knee during the playing of their country’s national anthem. Some players instead opted to lock arms with staff, including the owner of the Jaguars, Shahid Khan. Khan, the only minority owner of a team in the NFL one of several league owners to have contributed $1 million to Trump’s inaugural committee.

But here’s the rub. Amazingly all players then STOOD as the British anthem, “God Save the Queen” was played. Seriously? If you want to talk about white, patriarchal colonialism and classism, do you need to look further than the bloody United Kingdom?

Per the New York Daily News, Following the protests, Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti released a statement backing the statement made by his players during the national anthem.

“We recognize out players’ influence. We respect their demonstration and support them 100 percent,” Bisciotti said in his statement. “All voices need to be heard. That’s democracy in its highest form.”
Yes, well you’ll be hearing more voices heard when ticket sales and ratings continue to decline for NFL games.

It’s hilarious that multi-millionaire men of color who play to WIN are complaining about equality and fairness. Why not just take the Vince Lombardi trophy and rotate it around to a different team each week, so everyone can experience it. Take your Super Bowl ring and let the other guys wear it too. That’s fair, right?

    Why not just tell your police to stop shooting us. They are supposed to bring you to jail and you are supposed to have a court date to decide your crime. We are citizens too. Why are you not angry that citizens are being killed without trial? You say ALL lives matter well DO something about the police!

    AND Do something about the voting. You are letting people take names off of the voting rolls just because they have a name like someone else’s. Lots of people have the same name. Why don’t you advocate for MANDATORY voting. And then everyone has to sign up just like selective service and jury duty. You take a murderer of 9 people to Burger King, but you won’t help stop the police from killing people with license to carry.

    So now the spoiled, entitled, dumb (because they are biting the hand that feeds them) players are throwing a temper tantrum against our nation and our president by sitting during the national anthem. This is pure intolerance and hate, fueled by the anarchists, (under many flags) and the liberal news media that daily feed this discontentment. They are disrespecting our nation by spitting in the faces of our flag, our country and the men and women who died and put their lives on the line to defend it.
    What they don’t realize is the majority of average, informed thinking Americans are watching. And we have a play, too!
    Boycott the NFL and its sponsors! Walk out of the stadiums! Turn off the games!

    Why would they travel to another county and embarrass the United States. You all have done a dis-service to this country and should not be allowed to play this season!! Since they are protesting who knows what [flavor of the day] I believe they should make minimum pay, so they can feel like the rest of us…just saying

    To me is is beyond belief that any intelligent male in America would stoop to this.Take them on a tour of the American war veterans who fought to keep America free so worthless pieces of excrement like them were able to benefit from a country that would give people like them the rights they have enjoyed above any others. For what?Wrestling a stupid ball from others.
    It is sickening to have to look at their stupid faces.Every loyal American should boycott their not very interesting football games NOW.
    I’m sorry I cannot say another thing.I find them sickening beyond belief.

    You dare to disrespect the very ground that you make millions of dollars on. You will never get respect by disrespecting the very ground that you walk on. As much as I love football I will not watch it until I see some respect. And quit teaching our children something that they or you don’t even understand. PS look up history, Obama was not the first black president and a black man was the first American slave owner.

Nikki Haley Breaks with Trump: ‘We Shouldn’t Have Followed Him, and We Shouldn’t Have Listened to Him’

Published

on

Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, believes that former President Donald Trump “let us down.”

Haley’s remarks come as the former president’s legal team prepares to present its defense of Trump during his second impeachment trial in the Senate.

In a Politico interview published Friday, Haley, former South Carolina governor, said that “we shouldn’t have followed” Trump.

“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said in an extensive profile. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

She also told the outlet that she has not spoken to Trump since the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, and takes issue with his remarks condemning former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to reject the Electoral College vote.

“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she expressed. “I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”

The former ambassador, who many people are speculating may run for the White House in 2024, also added that Trump will never accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“There’s nothing that you’re ever going to do that’s going to make him feel like he legitimately lost the election,” she explained. “He’s got a big bully pulpit. He should be responsible with it.”

Haley also warned that many people still love the former president and will not stop supporting him just because he is out of office.

“I know how much people love Donald Trump,” she admitted. “I know it. I feel it. Whether it’s an RNC room or social media or talking to donors, I can tell you that the love they have for him is still very strong. That’s not going to just fall to the wayside. Nor do I think the Republican Party is going to go back to the way it was before Donald Trump. I don’t think it should.”

Haley added that people, instead, should “take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party.”

“[I]t’s bigger than the party,” she insisted. “I hope our country can come together and figure out how we pull this back.”

Referring to Haley’s possible 2024 ambitions, Politico’s Tim Alberta wrote, “Since last fall, I’ve spent nearly six hours talking with Haley on-the-record. I’ve also spoken with nearly 70 people who know her: friends, associates, donors, staffers, former colleagues. From those conversations, two things are clear. First, Nikki Haley is going to run for president in 2024. Second, she doesn’t know which Nikki Haley will be on the ballot.”

Haley also said that she didn’t believe Trump had a chance of winning in a 2024 election scenario.

“I don’t think he can,” she admitted. “He’s fallen so far.”

“I think his business is suffering at this point,” she added. “I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. I think he’s lost his social media, which meant the world to him. I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”

Published

President Trump’s defense team took the floor of the US Senate on Friday in defense of President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.

Trump Attorney David Schoen absolutely destroyed the House Managers when he took to the floor of the US Senate.

At one point Schoen played video of the Democrat lawmakers lying about a Trump tweet.

House Impeachment Manager Eric Swalwell gave a riveting performance on Wednesday reading off Trump’s tweets with emotional appeal.

During this theatrical performance, Swalwell read off a Trump retweet by Jennifer Lynn Lawrence.

But there was one problem with the tweet. It was photoshopped.

Jennifer Lynn Lawrence has never been verified by Twitter. Democrats faked that to make it look more important.

On Friday Trump Attorney David Schoen destroyed Democrats for lying about this to the American public.

White House Suspends Deputy Press Secretary For Allegedly Sexually Harassing, Threatening Reporter

Published

on

The White House announced on Friday that it was suspending Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo after a report surfaced alleging that he sexually harassed and threatened a female reporter who was getting ready to publish a report revealing that he was dating a reporter who had previously been tasked with covering Democrat Joe Biden.

“The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after [Politico reporter Tara] Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted [Axios political reporter Alexi] McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo,” Vanity Fair reported. “Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. ‘I will destroy you,’ Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.”

“During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was ‘jealous’ that an unidentified man in the past had ‘wanted to f***’ McCammond ‘and not you,’” the report added. “Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being ‘jealous’ of his relationship with McCammond.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said following the report that Ducklo has been suspended for a week over the incident.

“TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life,” Psaki wrote on Twitter. “He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President.”

“In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret,” she continued. “With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay. In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico.”

Reporters called out the administration over the incident, highlighting how the Trump administration did not treat reporters that way as well as issues with the timeline of events with regard to the White House taking action to address the incident.

“The Vanity Fair piece indicates that Politico editors reached to the WH after the incident first occurred and the WH acknowledged it was inappropriate,” Spectator editor Amber Athey wrote on Twitter. “But they clearly didn’t have any interest in disciplining Ducklo until his behavior was made public.”

New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi wrote on Twitter: “I covered Donald Trump for 6 years. It is saying something that this behavior — from a Biden official — shocks me.”

Grabien founder Tom Elliott highlighted the following remarks that Biden made a few weeks ago: “If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot, on the spot. No if, ands, or buts. Everybody — everybody is entitled to be treated with decency & dignity.”

CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded to the quote, writing: “Standards that are not upheld are not standards. They’re lies.”
