Karl Rove Blasts Trump Over NFL Kneeling
Comments: ´Loser in the Minds of the
American People´

Independent Journal Review, by William Steakin

Original Article

Karl Rove, a former senior adviser to President George W. Bush, ripped into President Donald Trump on Sunday for wasting his platform and his time attacking NFL players protesting by kneeling during the national anthem. “The president has two very valuable assets: his time and his voice. This president wastes it when he engages with things like this,” Rove said Sunday during a Fox News panel discussion on Trump´s recent controversial attacks of NFL players who protest for civil rights by taking a knee during the national anthem. Rove added that the president often spends time he ought to be

Starting in 2004, some members of the George W. Bush administration and Republican lawmakers began to find evidence of discarded chemical weapons in Iraq. But when the information was brought up with the White House, senior adviser Karl Rove told them to “let these sleeping dogs lie.”

(Not from the article but interesting look into the mind of a political idiot).

I must agree with Rove this time only. Trump went over the line when he should have just kept quiet, making the controversy worse and assuring it does not resolve on its own.

Sorry, Rove, President Trump continually voices what´s on our minds. Early on, Trump the candidate said he had no time for political correctness. Neither do I!

Trump is right. He is Commander and Chief of the Armed Forces.He has to see the survivors of our military. What can he say to them about disgusting display of disregard for all of the young men and women who lost their lives to keep our country safe for these spoiled, over paid thugs who make the ridiculous amount of money for throwing a ball around. May those NFL traitors rot in hell.

Since when is escalating a controversy a problem? In my mind, to do nothing is a pacifist loser´s plan. It is a controversy, for God´s sake! All Trump did was call it as such and say what many of us think should and hope would happen. Sheesh! I think it is refreshing to have a POTUS that does not ever leave us wondering what he might really think! Rove is the loser.

Rover = loser.

The "ignore the mounting WMD evidence" was the worst advice he gave to Dubya. Everybody and anybody, including CNN, knows the chemical weapons went to Syria. CNN reported this at the beginning of the current Syrian war, realized it contradicted their past Dubya bashing, and hushed up on the subject.

Rove is correct in saying the president has limited time to get his agenda pushed through and there are so many important things that all of us should be concerned about. I know Trump speaks for so many of us and hate all of the PC. His base loves what he says, but he needs to broaden that base if he wants another term. The media are loving this latest because it´s something else to hammer him with.

It all started with raised fist in the Olympic, allowing the flag burning, no pledge of allegiance, no prayer, no "in God we trust", no profiling, no spanking, generous government entitlement freebies for the wimps and crybabies, legalized pot, and Doorknob Hussein that started the slippery slope to dishonoring the flags and the men who died to defend our freedom. The LOSERs are those taking the knees and raising the fists who don´t understand and process how good and fortunate they are to live in a country, become a LOW LIFE and still prosper in this greatest country in the Universe.

People should not be afraid to voice their opinions.

Here´s mine:

You live and work in America. You can freely choose anything you want to be, believe what you believe. But know this. I am a proud American. You don´t respect my beloved country, you will not under any circumstances get money from me. Nor will anyone who supports you get my support. You are nothing to me. And if you use the power of government to take my money in taxes and fees, I will stop you.

I don´t kneel. I act and stand tall.

I am with President Trump on this one. Finally someone is saying what many of us feel and think. Just remember this, only 11 million people watched the Emmys. Out of 323 million Americans. The left wing media, Hollywood and a good portion of the 1%, Karl Rove, DC and the GOP think they own us. They live in their own little bubble that is not our reality. They are hysterical babies with totally different values and views of the world than me.
They are WRONG.

I stand with my hand over my heart and tears in my eyes. I am always moved by the Star Spangled Banner which serves to remind me of what our country stands for: freedom and those who died saving it. I am just so thankful that our President still has the freedom to say exactly what is in his heart and that we can still listen to the SSB while our flag waves. We are doomed when the music stops.

Trump needs to start speaking to his supporters in Pig Latin. These were hypothetical comments made to his supporters who roared their approval. The next day EVERY media outlet, including Fox, said Trump TOLD NFL owners to fire their players. More fake news. He said wouldn´t it be great if they did.

For some previous posters, standing up for and respecting our country is not wrong and calling out those who do disrespect it is also not wrong. Additionally, for those who just want to ignore the disrespectful actions of these over paid kids in hopes it will just go away, name just one actions by racist blacks that has ever just gone away. Never happens, whether stood up to or placated.

Until not too long ago, uncle Karl had a couple of his nieces come here several times a day to plant and cultivate his message to steer deplorable gullible conservatives into blindly supporting nominal, severe, pseudo conservatives whose love for government, power and the status quo knows no limits.

As to be expected, those few Ldotters are courageously hiding in the tall grass.

Turns out Trump knows more about football, politics, effective use of experience xecutive power and most importantly the consent of the governed than Karl Rove ever wil.

I think it´s a very safe bet that Carl Rove doesn´t understand how Donald Trump was elected president either...

We will see the ratings for this weekend, and if they are up, Rove was right. But if they were down (which we are certainly doing our part to help bring about) then Trump was 100% right.

If I were a betting woman, I would go with Trump on this one!!!

If those professional football players have a First Amendment Right to protest on their employers, and fans, dime, certainly the President of the USA, as the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces also has the First Amendment Right to speak out when he sees Americans disrespecting the National Anthem, the American Flag, and the country.

Apparently the football players who kneel during the National Anthem are concerned about the tactics that local police are forced to use to effectively police African-American communities and the fact that from time to time the police find it necessary to use deadly force against African-Americans who are involved in violent criminal activities or who fail to comply with the lawful directions of the police. Those football players should spend their off time in those African-American communities instructing African-Americans not to become involved in criminal activities and to comply with lawful directions when they are encountered by the police. So instead of pissing off half their fans by disrespecting the National Anthem, the American flag, and the country, so instead by mentoring in crime ridden African-American communities, those concerned football players might actually accomplish something constructive..

They should also ask themselves how many African-Americans in those communities would be murdered by African-American criminals if the police ever decide to withdraw from those communities and no longer effectively police them.

As for Rove he has always been a never Trumper, enough said about him.

BTW, Karl, are you the one who advised GWB to sit there and take it while the Democrats said the absolute worst things about him, the troops and the war effort in general? I´d heard you were. Trump has you to thank for his presidency.

Sports snowflakes decided to have a movement and league owners and Goodell chose to support it. Now, after all these months, it´s spreading across leagues, as well as to the college and high school levels and lower.

Fine, if we must choose between sports and America, American values and respecting American veterans, then the NFL, NBA and MLB are things of the past.

Sponsors, the owners could have stopped this. Our money is our money, and no longer yours to receive.

I wonder.....
All these very highly paid ´performance cast´ members of these entertainment companies (otherwise known as football players in the NFL).... If the NFL went away, what kind of jobs would they have.... what kind of money would they be making?.... If not for sports scholarships, how many of them could have gotten into University, how many of them would have graduated?

Anyone have any knowledge on this?

Karl Rove would have a point, but Roger Goodell managed to undo all of the damage which Trump had done to himself, and none of the benefit, by making the comment he did.

Trump´s comment was indeed divisive in a way which made those who were neither his supporter nor his opponent uncomfortable. However, when Roger Goodell said that Trump should not have said it because it failed to show respect for the NFL...all of a sudden, those people understood why it was not bad for Trump to say it the way he had said it. Roger Goodell, these protesters, and many others have a distorted sense of who should be respected and who it is OK to disrespect.
One can argue that the police of Ferguson, MO, or Baltimore, MD, or NYC have forfeited your of respect for actions they have taken (I would disagree, but the argument can be made), but that does not extend to police departments where you cannot point to similar incidents.

In one way I agree with Karl Rove - getting into the gutter with these sports nitwits is a waste of time. On the other hand, these players have insulted the President in a vicious, personal way. Their views on racial injustice are better aired off the sporting field.

Rove gave us the war in Iraq, Bush and he helped beat John Kerry - one of the biggest losers this country ever saw - another slug from the Vietnam war fiasco of LB Jerk and JFK. Rove keeps getting paid to spew propaganda and make you believe that politicians have your back.

The pile representing regulations from 1960 consisted of approximately 20,000 sheets of paper, while the pile representing today’s regulations consisted of more than 185,000. "We´re going to cut a ribbon because we´re getting back below the 1960 level, and we´ll be there fairly quickly," Trump said at

A professor at Boston University has proclaimed Christmas carol favorite “Jingle Bells” to be a “racist song” and is urging people to shun the jaunty tune. Kyna Hamill, a theater history professor at Boston University, recently told the Boston Globe that the venerable Christmas song has a “secret” racist past that has been “systematically” hidden from Americans as they celebrate the Christmas season. “The history of the song has remained hidden behind its local and season affection,” Hamill told the paper.

The Senate has cleared 12 nominations to the circuit courts since President Donald Trump assumed office, a record for the modern era. All three nominees were confirmed on narrow party-line votes, and they mark the culmination of a remarkably successful confirmation effort. Trump has secured 12 circuit court confirmations this year, as well as Justice Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation to the

Scandal: For 18 months, the FBI has been fixated on determining whether President Trump worked with Russia to influence the 2016 election. But explosive text exchanges between top FBI agents suggest it should be looking in the mirror. The text messages sent between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, which became public on Wednesday, provide a rare and illuminating window into just how rabidly partisan putatively nonpartisan law enforcement officials can be. In the exchanges, they called Trump an "idiot," a "loathsome human," an "enormous do-che," and said "this man cannot be president." When not berating Trump, they were praising Hillary Clinton.

Alabama is one of the most reliably Republican states in the country. The last time a Democrat was elected was in 1992, and no Democrat has won more than 40 percent of the vote in a Senate race there since 1996. The closest election in recent memory was in 2002, when Jeff Sessions won re-election by a razor-thin margin of 19 points. Sen. Richard Shelby has won his last three elections by 35 points, 30 points and 28 points, respectively. So it takes a special kind of stupid to pick a candidate who can lose to a Democrat in Alabama.

Spirits were high inside the House chamber on Thursday, November 16, when, in the early afternoon, the gavel fell and a measure to rewrite the American tax code passed on a partisan tally of 227 to 205.

Democrats´ shocking victory in the Alabama Senate special election undoubtedly has raised their potential list of seats they might win. If they can win in the Deep South, they can win anywhere. High on the list of reach targets is Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who is up for re-election in 2018. Hillary Clinton did quite well in Texas, only losing by 9 points (better than she did in Iowa) — as compared to nearly 28 points in Alabama. What´s more, Democrats have a solid candidate in the form of Rep. Beto O´Rourke from El Paso. It is true, of course,

The drama between Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and President Donald Trump has reached absurd heights. First, there was that rather tweet from the president, which was not out of the ordinary. He accused Gillibrand of doing “anything” for campaign contributions. Gillibrand said this was a sexist smear, despite the president using that line on pretty much everyone. This all is part of the ongoing sexual harassment reckoning on the Hill and elsewhere. Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) is gone, and Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) has signaled his intention to leave…whenever that may be. Gillibrand has called on Trump to resign, as
