ESPN has come under fire after "SportsCenter" host Jemele Hill tweeted that President Donald Trump is a "white supremacist" who is "unfit and unqualified" to be commander-in-chief. (Tweets) ESPN´s public relations department later tweeted a statement, saying that Hill´s comments do not represent the position of the network. ESPN took no action against Hill for her comments, however, which has led to criticism. (Tweet) Controversial free agent NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick tweeted a message of support to Hill, saying "we are with you." (Tweet) Kaepernick made national headlines last NFL season by kneeling during the pre-game national anthem to protest
Kaepernick is a walking piece of human debris that is throwing gasoline on the fire of racial divisiveness that is growing in our nation. Why don´t these black crusaders focus on the black on black gang killings in Chicago, or the rate of black babies born with absent fathers? Nope, don´t want to go there do they?
Kaepernick needs to move to NOLA. I have noticed ther is a green truck that comes by the house twice a week that constantly needs additional crew members. Colin is uniquely qualified to fill the void in this much needed job. Face it, collecting garbage will do far more to better society than kneeing during the anthum at an entertainment show.

I get it Colin. Obama´s dog whistle says that the 2018 playbook is to paint Trump and his supporters as racists. It worked so well against the police in 2012, why not? Something has to be done to get out the minority vote.
host Jemele Hill tweeted that President Donald Trump is a "white supremacist" who is "unfit and unqualified" to be commander-in-chief. It is Apparent that "Jemele" and her supporter Kaepernick are not quite fit to be making Comments about Others.
I am tired of the most;y white mixed bloods racists. I think they are not that into the more struggling all-blacks but IDK. I do know that hypocrisy and hating for power and position reeks. Call them sewer saints?
Black supremists making demands that we either defer to or defect(fight about) or declare (discuss, negotiate and unify for good of a;;?)
Crying shame that Blacks aren´t held to the same standards of conduct and performance that all others are (and that includes other minorities). The question becomes: are they just not capable or is it a ploy by the Left to keep them on the liberal plantation and use them to divide the country. Either way, it is pathetic.
I noticed that Hill did not have to make a statement that ESPN did it for her. ESPN need only take a look at the empty seats at the 49er´s opening day game; and don´t forget to stop by the Ram´ games. It was a beautiful sight to see. Keep it up and the games may be worth going to again. A clue for ESPN you are rooting for the losing team.
Weird, how those who have benefited most from America and it´s capitalist system choose to bludgeon the average, working people....the ´red-neck´, clock punching workers and call them "White Supremacists". This has the potential to become a self-full-filling prophecy.
My "White Privilege" has allowed me to do manual labor in dangerous and difficult places all my life. My conservative opinions got me thrown out of more than one college.
If you want my "White Privilege" you´ll have to wrest it from my cold, dead, grimy, calloused and arthritic old hand.
I still watch football.
But I don´t care who wins so long as someone gets hurt.
How Sarah Sanders should have responded to the question about Hill´s tweet:
"That is a salacious and demonstrably false statement. Continuing to make such demonstrably false statements shows one to be a liar. If ESPN wishes to continue to employ persons who make salacious and demonstrably false statements, that is their business. President Trump, on the other hand, continues to work to make America better for all Americans."
Clearly ESPN and the NFL are scared to death of their minority employees. But by becoming so politically correct, and by allowing outrageous comments by those employees, those entities are pushing away half the country.
People magazine named Blake Shelton its Sexiest Man Alive for 2017 on Tuesday, but it took some convincing by his girlfriend Gwen Stefani to get her guy on board. The country music superstar and coach on NBC´s "The Voice" hates being the center of attention, the magazine said. "She goes, ´Listen to me,´" recalled the 6-foot-5, Oklahoma-bred Shelton. "´You´re going to regret this for the rest of your life if you don´t take this gift and just live in the moment.´ I´ve been ugly my whole life. If I can be sexy for a year, I´m taking it!´" Bonus for
The Pentagon has paid for an infantry soldier to undergo gender transition surgery after a federal judge blocked President Trump´s ban on transgender service members last month. The soldier, who identifies as a woman, became the first active-duty service member to receive such an operation paid for by the Defense Department when she went under the knife on Tuesday. Vice Admiral Raquel Bono, head of the Defense Health Agency, which provides medical care to active-duty personnel, approved the waiver request for the surgery Monday, defense officials told NBC News.

The Food and Drug Administration has approved a smart pill that digitally tracks whether it is being taken as scheduled. Abilify MyCite (aripiprazole) tablets are antipsychotics primarily used in the treatment of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and episodes of mania. It has also been used as a an “add-on treatment in major depressive disorder, tic disorders, and irritability associated with autism.” Representing nearly $7 billion dollars in drug sales, it is a widely used treatment for very serious long-term mental health issues. Unfortunately, those who need it most are also more likely not to take it. Studies show that treatment “non-adherence,”
If ever there were an election that proved the importance of accurate voter rolls, it was Virginia’s on Nov. 7. With control of the General Assembly hanging in the balance, at least three Democratic candidates demanded recounts of their Republican opponents’ razor-thin victory margins. One candidate led by 106 votes, another by 86, and a third led by only 10. Another five races were decided by fewer than 900 votes. The Democrats need to flip only two more seats to take control of the lower chamber. Every vote counts, and every name listed on a voter registration roll can be
The popular party game Cards Against Humanity said they have purchased a piece of property along the Mexican border and will use it to prevent President Trump’s proposed wall. The game announced a holiday promotion on Tuesday that gives players a map of the border location along with other gifts for $15. “We’ve purchased a plot of vacant land on the border and retained a law firm specializing in eminent domain to make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for the wall to get built,” the company said. Along with an “illustrated map of the land,” the game makers
CNN continued its pattern of reporting ridiculous factoids about President Donald Trump on Thursday when the liberal news network gave over two minutes of airtime to a segment about the inside of a dog’s ear that looks like Trump’s face. The segment featured on “Erin Burnett OutFront” analyzed the inside of a dog’s ear in the U.K. which the network compared to Trump’s face. The banner displayed on the show read: "A dog named Chief has an ear that looks like Trump´s face." After tracking down Jade Robinson, the dog´s owner, CNN learned that the discovery was made when she
California Democrats could be in trouble in 2018, with the latest USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times Poll finding registered voters’ top concerns are the traditionally Republican issues of high cost of living, jobs, taxes, and illegal immigrants. The USC poll found that the most important concerns for voters are the high cost of living, at 21.8 percent; followed by jobs, at 9.9 percent; taxes and fees, at 8.9 percent; and illegal immigration, at 6.9 percent. Traditionally Democrat social justice issues tended to be near the bottom of poll concerns, with racism at 1.9 percent; education at 1.4 percent; poverty at 1.2
Up until one week ago, the worst thing one could claim about Judge Roy Moore was that he stood for the Ten Commandments as a judge and ticked off the ACLU. While arguments exist constitutionally around that particular matter, Moore´s actions in doing so were certainly not indicative of a man with a weak character who would exploit young ladies. In fact, he stood for something and risked losing a political position. Another matter that put Moore´s political post at risk was his stance on marriage. Again, he didn´t go along to get along. He stood for what he believes
CTH has attempted to stay away from talking about the Alabama ‘clown show‘, all of it, since we made our position clear long before the primary run-off race. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes etc. My concern with the Alabama mess was a very simple MAGA issue: riding horses to polling stations does not establish a connection to the man or woman who hit the necessary alarm clock at 5:15am to pay the bills. Those are MAGA people. That’s the essence of the Trump coalition. The MAGA coalition I know has never been predisposed to racism, sexism, nativism, or any
Famed engineer Marc Isambard Brunel lost a bid to design the US Capitol Building in Washington, DC, 224 years ago. Now, his design has been revealed after being tucked away in a large album in the Brunel family archive for more than 150 years. The drawing is tipped to sell at the auction in London on Wednesday for $19,600 (£15,000). Brunel, who went on to design the Thames Tunnel in London and was the father of Isambard Kingdom Brunel, submitted his plans to a committee which was appointed to choose the design for the Capitol Hill building in 1793. His
Black Christian Conservative Republican Lloyd Marcus here. I call upon all my fellow Christians not to abandon our brother Roy Moore who is running for U.S. Senate Alabama. Right before the election, 40-year-old sexual misconduct allegations have come out against Judge Moore, which he has denied. Judge Moore is hated by Leftists and establishment Republicans because he is an outspoken, character-driven Christian conservative; a faithful courageous defender of our Constitution, principles and values which have made America great. Moore elected to the U.S. Senate would be extremely helpful to Trump draining the swamp and making America great again. Judge Moore´s
The 23rd annual Conference of the Parties to the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change – dubbed COP23 – is being held in Bonn this week, with an "official" U.S. delegation mostly absent from the proceedings. A counter-culture delegation made the trip, but all of their activities are being held on the sidelines of the event. There was some U.S. participation in the formal proceedings. Notably, the president of the U.S. Energy Association, Barry Worthington, gave a speech making the commonsense point that fossil fuels are going to be a dominant source of energy for the foreseeable future,
Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden told an NBC audience Monday that he wouldn’t worry much about a potential 2020 matchup against President Trump because he’s “Middle-class Joe.” A hypothetical election showdown between Mr. Biden, 77, and Mr. Trump was laid before a “Megyn Kelly Today” audience to start the week when the former vice president said blue-collar voters “love” him more than the president. He said that while he is still unsure about future plans, his connection with middle-class voters is not in doubt. (Snip) “I understand the Rust Belt. Donald Trump has no notion what those people are
A woman on Monday alleged that Roy Moore, the Republican nominee for Senate in Alabama sexually assaulted her when she was a minor. Beverly Young Nelson said Moore groped her and tried to force her to perform oral sex when she was 16 and she worked at a restaurant that Moore frequented. In a statement, Nelson said that Moore attacked her in his car after offering her a ride home. According to Nelson, instead of driving her home, Moore parked in a lot behind the restaurant. "Mr. Moore began groping me, putting his hands on my breasts. I tried fighting him off, while yelling
Monday on CNBC, former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL) said due to the sexual misconduct accusations leveled against former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, he should step aside in his campaign for the U.S. Senate. Bush said, “This is not a question of innocence or guilt like in a criminal proceeding, this is a question of what’s right and what’s wrong. Acknowledging that you’re dating teenagers when you’re 32-years old as assistant state attorney is wrong. It’s just plain wrong.” He added, “We need to stand for basic principles, and decency has to be one of those.
Chelsea Clinton opted for classic black to take the stage at Glamour magazine´s Women of the Year Live Summit, and when it came to choosing heels to match her outfit, she turned to her favorite pair of damaged nude pumps. The 37-year-old, who was named Glamour Woman of the Year in 2014, donned a simple, yet elegant A-line dress featuring scallop detailing on the bodice and hem for the event that was held at the Brooklyn Museum on Monday. Chelsea accessorized her look with a delicate gold necklace and her favorite patent leather pumps, which looked incredibly torn up after
Republican Sen. Jeff Flake says he would rather see a Democrat win Alabama’s open Senate seat than accused teen groper Roy Moore — and compared the GOP candidate to former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. “If the choice is between Roy Moore and a Democrat, if I were in Alabama I’d vote for the Democrat,” the Arizona senator?, who recently announced he would not seek reelection,? said Monday. “There was a time when Republican senators would go and campaign for a Democrat rather than seat a Republican who would be so repugnant to the party and would diminish the party’s chances
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.) said on Friday that if the allegations against Alabama candidate for U.S. Senate Roy Moore are true, he should step aside, and “should be dealt with severely.” But Graham not only hasn’t called for Democrat Sen. Bob Menendez (N.J.), accused of having sex with underage prostitutes, to step aside — he also went to New Jersey on his own dime two weeks ago to testify as a character witness in Menendez’s corruption trial, telling the judge that Menendez is “very honest” and “honorable.” The Washington Post published a story on Thursday quoting a woman named
Known for his insightful take on politics, journalist and author Thomas Wictor believes Judge Roy Moore’s signature in Gloria Allred accuser Beverly Young Nelson’s yearbook is a forgery. (Photo) The sevens in 1977 to the right of “Christmas,” are very different from the sevens in the date (12-22-77) above “Old Hickory House.” “Look at the two versions of the number “7,” tweeted Wictor. “”12-22-77” and “Olde Hickory House” were written by a different person,” he added. Next, Wictor points out “the “R” and “y” in “Roy,”” are not written the same way. The inflection of the “Y” is more pronounced
Sen. Cory Gardner, the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, said the Senate should vote to expel Roy Moore if the Alabama GOP Senate candidate wins the Dec. 12 election. "I believe the individuals speaking out against Roy Moore spoke with courage and truth, proving he is unfit to serve in the United States Senate and he should not run for office," Gardner wrote in a statement. "If he refuses to withdraw and wins, the Senate should vote to expel him, because he does not meet the ethical and moral requirements of the United States Senate." ORIGINAL STORY: Senate
On Monday, Keurig CEO Bob Gamgort issued a memorandum to employees denouncing his own company’s Twitter announcement that it had pulled advertising from Sean Hannity’s television program on Fox News. That advertising pullout came in the wake of an astroturfed campaign from Media Matters based on false allegations that Hannity expressed support for child molestation and had attacked sexual assault accusers. The pullout led to a massive backlash on Twitter, where Keurig owners began smashing their machines and announcing that they would boycott the company. Finally, Gamgort responded thusly: (Tweet) Gamgort acknowledged that normally they would “pause” advertising on a
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is said to be considering appointing a second special counsel to investigate issues related to former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, former FBI Director James Comey, and the Obama administration. Sessions´ contemplation comes after the House Judiciary Chairman urged him to look into Comey´s handling of the FBI´s investigation into Clinton´s email use, the 2010 Uranium One deal, and the Clinton Foundation. Trump has repeatedly called Sessions a "weak" attorney general and pushed him to investigate Clinton and the Democrats as the FBI investigates Trump and his campaign for possible collusion with Moscow during the 2016
The ´socialist´ doctor charged with cracking Senator Rand Paul´s ribs in a crunching blindside tackle may have harbored a secret grudge against his GOP neighbor for spoiling his lakeside views and ´devaluing´ his home, DailyMail.com can reveal. Rene Boucher, 59, told Paul in the wake of the mauling that he hadn´t been able to sell his $740,000 house for ten years because the congressman´s trees were ´in the way´. It´s believed Boucher was referring to woodland at the back of Paul´s property that blocks the doctor´s views of the picturesque private lake that forms the centerpiece of their upscale gated
TAMPA, Fla.- Riding in a flamboyant purple vehicle, Ja Du shows up to a coffee shop to open up about his new identity. Ja Du, born a white male named Adam, now considers himself a Filipino. Turns out the purple ride he drives around in is called a Tuk Tuk, an Asian-derived vehicle used for public transit in the Philippines he says. Ja Du is part of a small, but growing community of people who considers themselves transracial. It refers to someone born one race, but identifies with another. Sound weird? Not to them. Ja Du says he grew up
