NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is on the verge of handing President Trump a significant political victory by calling on his players to stand for the national anthem. For the first time since some players began taking a knee in protest of police misconduct, the commish officially and explicitly said he wants players to honor the anthem by standing — even as he respects their right to protest. He says the league will come up with a formal policy at next week’s owners meeting. The question is: Why did the league finally cave? The answer: Follow the money. Trump is a rookie politician who

Hollywood is in chaos, and all because of one man: Harvey Weinstein. Multiple allegations of rape, sexual harassment and trading sex for movie roles have forced one of the most powerful men in show business out of his company and begging for help and forgiveness. But the ripples extending from the wake of Weinstein’s dramatic fall extend much further than his business and personal relationships and so far show no signs of abating. From the women he allegedly abused, to the associates who allegedly knew about his behavior all along but stayed silent, to the A-list actors and actresses who depend on him

LONDON - Sally Jones, a British jihadi who recruited online for the Islamic State group, has been killed in Syria by a U.S. drone along with her 12-year-old son, The Sun newspaper reported on Thursday. A convert to Islam from southern England, Jones was nicknamed the “White Widow” by the British press after her jihadi husband Junaid Hussain, also an IS militant, was killed by a drone in 2015. Quoting a British intelligence source who had been briefed by U.S. counterparts, The Sun reported that Jones and her son had been killed in June close to Syria’s border with Iraq, as she

SINGAPORE - Oil prices eased on Thursday as U.S. fuel inventories rose despite efforts by OPEC to cut production and tighten the market.

Washington President Donald Trump appears poised to "decertify" the Iran nuclear deal in an effort to initiate tougher and more wide-ranging restrictions on Tehran, but his plan -- which hinges on Congress determining a path forward -- is raising concerns of a potential backlash that could set the stage for another nuclear crisis. Two senior US officials told CNN that Trump plans to "decertify" the deal this week despite the international community´s assessment that Iran is fulfiling its obligations under the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, known as the JCPOA. While Trump will likely stop short of scrapping the agreement

President Donald Trump said that the NFL should have suspended quarterback Colin Kaepernick the first time he kneeled for the National Anthem. ´The NFL should have suspended him for one game and he would never have done it again,´ he said in an interview with Fox News´ Sean Hannity Wednesday night. ´They could have then suspended him for two games and they could have suspended him again if he did it a third time, for the season, and you would never have had a problem.´ Trump, who gave the interview from a rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, was harping on his opinion that not

Fmr. Obama Senior Adviser Calls for Gun
Confiscation ‘Similar to the One
Australia Instituted’

Former Obama White House advisor Dan Pfeiffer called for the United States to implement an Australian-style gun confiscation program in an article published on Wednesday. Former President Barack Obama previously said in 2016 that the United States should consider following the example of Australia, which enacted a "mandatory buy-back" of guns and created a gun registry. Pfeiffer echoed that view in Wednesday´s article, published on Crooked, a media site founded by three former Obama staffers. Pfeiffer argued Democrats should propose such a program and outlined an extensive regimen of gun restrictions that Democrats could support, advising they stop "insincere pandering"

Advocates for a pregnant 17-year-old girl held in a Texas facility for immigrant children who have crossed the border alone are asking a federal judge to allow her to get an abortion, over the opposition of U.S. and state officials. A federal magistrate judge in San Francisco has scheduled a hearing Wednesday on a request filed by the American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California, which accuses the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services of refusing to let the girl be taken for the procedure. Rochelle Garza, a lawyer appointed to represent the girl´s legal interests, told The Associated

The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence is ramping up investigation into former President Barack Obama administration’s campaign to “unmask” President Donald Trump aides who were incidentally surveilled in meetings with foreign officials, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned. The committee is also intensifying a probe into Fusion GPS, a private “opposition research” company that distributed a salacious memo on Trump, called the “Trump Dossier.” Over the next two weeks the House committee is expected to privately interview former U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power, who reportedly unmasked or identified as many as 260 Americans, primarily Trump campaign or

During an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, portions of which were broadcast on Wednesday’s edition of CNN’s “OutFront,” former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton denounced Harvey Weinstein’s behavior and announced that money she received from him would be part of the 10% of her income she donates to charity every year. Hillary said when she first heard the news about Weinstein, “I was just sick. I was shocked. I was appalled. It was something that was just intolerable in every way.

The Congressional Black Caucus Prayer
Breakfast: The Great Black Deception

Flipping through my TV channels, I stumbled upon the 2017 Congressional Black Caucus Annual Prayer Breakfast on the Word Network; the world´s largest black religious channel. This year´s theme was, "And Still I Rise". Folks, I thought, "Oh my gosh, these people have no shame." This breakfast was all about exploiting black´s Christian heritage to deceive them for the purpose of furthering Leftists´ anti-Christian agenda. Every musical performance praised Jesus. Leftists despise Jesus, aggressively seeking to ban the God of Christianity from the public square. Several of the all-Democrat speakers quoted the Bible to strengthen their political deceptions.

Derek Jeter wouldn’t say whether he would take a knee during the national anthem if he still were playing, but the Marlins’ new co-owner and future Hall of Famer wouldn’t have a problem if one of his players chose to protest social injustice and police brutality by doing so. “Peaceful protest is fine,” the Miami CEO said Wednesday at the 21st annual Turn 2 Foundation Dinner at Cipriani on Wall Street. “You have a right to voice your opinion, as long as it’s a peaceful protest.” As a player, Jeter rarely discussed social issues. But when asked his feelings about

With Harvey Weinstein fired amid escalating allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct, the business he helped create is consumed not just with what he is accused of doing, but with what other company leaders knew and how they responded. On Tuesday, his brother and co-founder, Bob Weinstein, and the company’s president, David Glasser, told concerned employees in a video conference call that they were shocked by the allegations and unaware of payments made to women who complained of unwanted touching, sexual harassment and other over-the-line behavior, according to several employees who spoke on the condition of anonymity. Soon after, Bob

On Tuesday´s Deadline: White House, MSNBC Republicans Nicolle Wallace and Elise Jordan were leaning left on the issue of NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem as they fretted over the NFL caving in to President Donald Trump´s complaints on the issue. Wallace also delivered the liberal spin that kneeling should actually be considered respectful, even though original kneeler Colin Kaepernick made clear that he was holding his anti-police views against the U.S. as a whole. And Jordan complained that Vice President Mike Pence was being "insidious" by walking out on an NFL game in protest of the kneeling. (Video)

President Trump said he thinks former San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick would have changed his behavior if he had been suspended a game last season for kneeling during the national anthem. "I watched Colin Kaepernick and I thought it was terrible. And then it got bigger and bigger and started mushrooming," Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity in an interview that will air Wednesday night. "Frankly the NFL should have suspended him for one game and he would have never done it again," he said. "But I will tell you -- you cannot disrespect our country, our flag, our

Former state Sen. Kelli Ward (R) has raised more than $1 million this year for her primary challenge against incumbent Sen. Jeff Flake (R) in Arizona. In the third quarter of 2017, Ward raised $690,000, nearly doubling the amount she raised in the first six months of the year. The total Ward has raised this year is now $1.047 million. Her cash reserves bounced from $83,000 at the end of the second quarter to over $250,000 presently. “Dr. Ward’s campaign to retire Senator Jeff Flake is gaining incredible momentum,” said Brent Lowder, chief strategist for the campaign. “Her broad fundraising

At the BET Hip-Hop Awards Tuesday night, rapper Eminem became the latest in a long line of celebrities to bash President Trump when he debuted a fiercely anti-Trump diatribe dressed up as a freestyle rap. For four bleeped-out, profanity-laced minutes, Eminem slammed the president as a racist, bigot and "a kamikaze that´ll probably cause a nuclear holocaust." He then proceeded to rip some of his fans, saying, "Any fan of mine who´s a supporter of his, I´m drawing in the sand a line.

Austin Bay describes what might be called Trump´s "Sam Spade" strategy for handling North Korea. The fictional Spade as you may recall from the Maltese Falcon faced the problem of neutralizing an armed gunman. He did this by ignoring the thug while convincing his boss that gunplay would be in neither of their interests. Bay notes that Donald Trump´s Twitzkrieg against Kim Jong Un takes a similar tack. Trump reminds China that a nuclear armed Pyongyang -- not Beijing -- would hold the key to war and peace in North Asia, an intolerable state of affairs for the control freaks in

I don’t think we have written about the article by Professor Bruce Gilley of Portland State University titled “The Case For Colonialism,” which was published in Third World Quarterly. I haven’t read the article, but this is the abstract. It sounds as though the article is in line with my own thinking on the subject. While it certainly had its dark side–e.g., pretty much anything involving Belgium–European colonialism was, on the whole, a positive force: "For the last 100 years, Western colonialism has had a bad name. It is high time to question this orthodoxy. Western colonialism was, as a general
