Following the lead of kneelers is not likely to turn out well for the NFL leadership, club owners or the players. Quote: "To be clear, de-funding professional arenas should be done across the board, and not just targeted at teams which disrespect the national anthem and the American flag. Ending this unconstitutional practice would be a good idea even if the protests weren’t underway, but seeing spoiled athletes take a knee is the perfect opportunity to remind sports leagues that the world doesn’t revolve around them. Freedom of speech does allow a player to sit out the national anthem… but the First Amendment does not magically make players or their teams immune to the fallout. More and more, viewers are exercising free speech of their own by turning off NFL broadcasts and leaving game tickets unsold. These proposed bills could give Americans another way to vote with their dollars, and tell spoiled teams to find their stadium funding somewhere else. https://conservativetribune.com/legislators-move-sports-teams/We close this section with the wisdom contained in the next two pieces.
Quote: "As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, we’re at a very crucial crossroads in American history. We have to be well-informed, not only about current events but well-versed in the basics of our rights and duties as citizens. If not, in perceived times of crisis, we may very well find ourselves in the clutches of a governmental system that is alien to everything for which America stands. Therein is the menace to our freedoms. So stop falling for the distractions. Stop allowing yourself to be fooled by propaganda and partisan politics. Stop acting as if the only thing worth getting outraged about is whether a bunch of football players stand or kneel for the National Anthem. Stop being armchair patriots and start acting like foot soldiers for the Constitution." https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/09/26/patriots-and-protesters-should-take-a-knee-for-the-constitution/
Quote: "Sunday’s game exposed a clash of loyalties in the hearts of NFL players. Do black players stand in solidarity with Kaepernick? Do white players stand beside black teammates, if that means standing with them as they disrespect the flag under which hundreds of thousands of our soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines have died? This conflict in loyalties among NFL players mirrors that of our country, as America divides and our society disintegrates over issues of morality, patriotism, race and culture." And, "In terms of fame and fortune, no professions have proven more rewarding for young black American males than the NFL and the NBA. Whether they soil their nest is, in the last analysis, up to them." https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/09/26/will-nfl-demand-respect-for-old-glory
The Rest.This is an illustration of the sad state of today's political leftist/Democrat population in our country. They are going down hill on the far left side at a very rapid pace. https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/09/29/your-freedom-of-speech-is-literally-killing-people/
Past items have noted the irresponsible and hateful antics of Democrat representative Maxine Waters. Quote: "On Thursday, Waters had some advice to give to members of the home-grown terrorist organization group Black Lives Matter. She implored them to start getting involved in politics and had “better get controversial.” According to Breitbart, Waters went on to explain that it is important for black people to play the race card. In Waters’ world, they better not ask why — they had better just obey, or risk being alienated by the entire community. Her disturbing speech gives real insight as to what she thinks needs to happen in America. The representative did not stop there. She went on to talk about President Trump and how she believes the situation should be handled, despite any clear signs of logic or thinking. “Black people, you better get controversial. You better be controversial. You had better call it like it is. We have been shut down because others have defined us,” Waters stated. She acts as though there is some form of segregation present. Oddly enough, she failed to mention that the nation just got done with eight-years of President Obama. One would logically conclude that if systematic racism exists there is no way Americans would have elected a black president for two terms, right? Wrong, according to Maxine. " https://www.teaparty.org/just-maxine-waters-gives-sick-order-black-people-267590/ Inciting riots is against the law. She is an American elected official who is actively seeking harm to the nation and its people. She should be impeached.
This is an example of Democrat senator obstructing Trump's judicial nominees. Their position is apparently based on claims of precedence that has never happened, Quote: "Oregon's two Democratic senators are blocking one of President Trump's judicial nominees with claims that a "longstanding" state tradition mandating that nominees be chosen from their "judicial selection committee" was violated, but the tradition they cite has never applied to picks for the U.S. Circuit Court, according to records viewed by the Washington Free Beacon. Sens. Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley alerted the White House that they would be blocking the nomination of Oregon native Ryan Bounds for a seat on the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Bounds is currently serving as assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon. "We cannot return a blue slip on any judicial nominee that has not been approved by our bipartisan judicial selection committee," the senators wrote in a letter to the White House referencing the informal "blue slip" process by which senators are able to block nominations of judges from their home state. "We have a long history of organizing a committee charged with thoroughly vetting applicants from the Oregon legal community," the senators wrote. "We do not intend to return our blue slips for Ryan Bounds or any other nominee that has not been selected through our judicial selection process." Though Wyden and Merkley refer to this selection process as a "longstanding" tradition, records show that nominees for the U.S. Circuit Court such as Bounds have never been selected in this fashion." http://freebeacon.com/issues/oregon-dems-push-phony-precedent-to-block-ninth-circuit-court-nominee/
Democrat Nancy Pelosi gets a taste of her own medicine. http://patrioticviralnews.com/articles/dreamer-protest-shuts-down-nancy-pelosi-event/
I have for a long time disliked Republican Senator John McCain. He is dishonest, self serving, egotistical, an opportunist and has skeletons in his closet. This piece affirms at least one reason why my feelings are justified. Quote: "A recent video uncovered a stark truth about McCain that he likely thought would be buried forever. When he ran his election in Arizona, one of his main promises was to get rid of ObamaCare once and for all. In fact, McCain said that ObamaCare is an “exercise of sleeze.” Now, after shooting down the bill once and saying that he would do it again, the GOP, as well as the rest of the United States, is wondering what will happen next." And, "“How many times is this guy going to rescue ObamaCare from the abyss?” Bongino asked. This is clearly a trend, and political commentators around the country are beginning to catch on. “John McCain sold us all out. And I’m still wondering why he claims to be a Republican senator, despite being the Democrats’ best friend right now,” Bongino pointed out." https://www.teaparty.org/watch-videos-mccains-past-surfaced-now-know-truth-267997/
This item provides a very interesting perspective on the whole DACA spectacle. Quote: "What follows, now that the issue is before Congress, will show whether the defenders of DACA are sincere in saying that they wish to distinguish between those deliberately broke the law and those who were young, innocent victims of their parents. Many of us who oppose amnesty suspect that they simply want to use DACA as the entering wedge for a massive amnesty for as many as eleven million illegal aliens." http://email.conservativeusa.org/q/11mrSA8hJcrIvfBcTXfVF05/wv
This is not the kind of trend we want to see. But, then, the left is pushing a loose standard for safe sex. Quote: "Sexually transmitted diseases surged to a record high in the United States last year, with more than two million cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis nationwide, officials said Tuesday. This was “the highest number ever,” said the annual Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance Report released today by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Most of the new cases — 1.6 million in 2016 — involved chlamydia, a bacterial infection that affects both men and women. Gonorrhea also increased among men and women last year, but the steepest rise was among men (22 percent), said the report. Nationwide, gonorrhea cases reached 470,000, with a large share of new gonorrhea cases among men who have sex with men." https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/09/27/sex-diseases-in-us-surge-to-record-high/
