Trump says criticism of NFL protests
´has nothing to do with race´

The Hill, by Mallory Shelborne

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 9/24/2017 6:49:37 PM

President Trump said Sunday that his criticism of NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem “has nothing to do with race,” but rather is about respect for the U.S. and the flag. “This has nothing to do with race. I never said anything about race. This has nothing to do with race or anything else. This has to do with respect for our country and respect for our flag,” Trump said on the tarmac of Morristown Municipal Airport, per White House pool reports. The president’s comments come as NFL players across the country protested during the national anthem

The players and owners have done more to divide our nation than the KKK. They disrespect out flag and Nation while promoting Black Lives Matters a terrorist organization. If they want to protest fine just on your own time.

I for one will not watch another NFL football game or support it´s sponsors until this madness stops.......this goes for the NBA to.

Time to bring the American hating NFL down! Turn them off.

I´m quite sure that DJT´s comments had nothing to do with race, but the NFL players are all about race.

NFL RULES

The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the NFL League Rulebook. It states:

“The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem.

“During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition...

...It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

Ok, I cant be the Lone Ranger here. Is anyone else sick to death of the phrase "took a knee"? It was never heard until a couple weeks ago. Now you hear it every two minutes. It seems to be the fun thing for media to say anymore, like "moving forward" "homophobia" "Islamophobia" "Dreamer" and about a dozen others.
Took a knee? Who from? Give it back so he can walk!

So, the NFL already has a rule. Thanx #4. Gotta wonder why the Roger Goodell never brought this up. Apparently the NFL doesn´t want to follow their own rules if it´s inconvenient or not politically correct - much like the Obama Administration.

The NFL wants to go their own way, fine.
I certainly hope there are no more flyovers, no more military color guard. No more tax exemptions and tax breaks.

No more looking the other way at domestic violence abuse, illegal gun possession or drug possession. No more on or off duty cops working security. They pay their own way.

As far as I´m concerned, they´re just another form of soccer now.

Thanks, #4, for showing all the rules. Until the owners enforce the rules, the players will continue their insubordination. The owners are terrified of their players and they know it.

For these insubordinate unpatriotic jerks, I want them drafted by an ISIS football league. I might even watch video of what happens to them when they lose! It makes my blood boil that they are clueless as to the fortunate circumstances they are reaping treasure from and that the owners paying them are mostly allowing them to be disrespectful. Perhaps for one, I think I would enjoy a star being fired, on the field, and the second string guy given a chance. Tomorrow, as I have heard that Jerry Jones has banned disrespect, I may watch the Cowboys on Monday Night Football.

A little-known adviser on the Trump campaign is a “person of interest” in the Senate Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russian interference in the presidential campaign. North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr, the chairman of the Senate panel, told BuzzFeed that George Papadopoulos, a short-lived member of the campaign’s foreign policy team, is “definitely a person of interest” in the committee’s probe. Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, the Democratic vice chairman of the committee, echoed Burr’s statement, saying that the committee hopes to interview Papadopoulos, who was an adviser to Ben Carson’s campaign before joining the Trump team last March.

Blue State Blues: George W. Bush’s
Divisive Call for Unity Against Trump
Breitbart Big Government, by Joel B. Pollak    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 10/20/2017 1:01:47     Post Reply
Former President George W. Bush emerged from retirement on Thursday to stage a broad attack on President Donald Trump and the movement that supports him. Without mentioning Trump by name, Bush accused him of “casual cruelty” in political discourse, of distorting nationalism into “nativism,” and of emboldening bigotry and white supremacy. He called for a renewed commitment to American global leadership and domestic citizenship. It was a call to national unity — against Trump and his supporters, who were reduced to labels and caricatures: “protectionism,” “isolationist sentiments,” and the like. “Too often, we judge other groups by their worst examples

One thing that’s been an absolute staple of Fox News’ programming during the Age of Trump has been a heavy criticism of the mainstream media’s coverage. With the president spending much of his time complaining about “fake news” in response to reporting he doesn’t like, the network’s opinion hosts and commentators have parroted POTUS’s attacks and devoted segments to hammering other outlets. In an interview with the Associated Press this week, Fox News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace put his colleagues on blast over their penchant for discrediting the press. As he puts it, whenever these media attacks are uttered on

Christmas came early for the liberal Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) on Thursday when former President George W. Bush spoke out against the Donald Trump administration. In a disgusting display of sudden respect for a long time political foe, the network’s championed Bush’s hammering of the current president. And the icing on their anti-Trump cake was former President Obama doing the exact same thing too. “Today, the 43rd President made no mention of the 45th, but his focus was clear,” touted White House Correspondent Margaret Brennan during CBS Evening News. “He suggested that an America first mindset is

“What is the difference between a socialist and a Democrat on taxes?” asked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) during Wednesday’s CNN-hosted town hall debate in Washington, D.C. Sanders could not or would not answer the question; “I don’t know the answer to that,” said the self-described “democratic socialist” senator from Vermont. Sanders heralded “Denmark, and Sweden, and Norway, and Finland,” falsely framing the Scandinavian countries as having a “higher standard of living” than America. America’s “free enterprise system,” said Cruz, has been history’s greatest generator of prosperity, adding, "Bernie likes to glorify socialism, but if you

Quentin Tarantino admitted knowing for decades about Harvey Weinstein´s alleged sexual misconduct, confessing in an interview published Thursday to feeling ashamed that he did not stop working with the mogul. ´I knew enough to do more than I did,´ the Oscar-winning filmmaker told the New York Times, citing several episodes involving prominent actresses. ´There was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. ´It wasn´t secondhand.

In addition to CNN, liberal activists, actors, journalists, and trolls disturbingly berated and maligned the character of John Kelly following his Thursday White House remarks, declaring him to be an “odious” “coward” and “nitwit” offering a “bizarre,” “dishonest,” and racist statement amidst the Gold Star family controversy. Let’s take the CNNers who weren’t able to participate in the CNN Newsroom berating of Kelly immediately after he left the White House briefing room.

Former White House intern Monica Lewinsky’s participation in the #MeToo Twitter campaign to highlight sexual assault has raised the ire of Juanita Broaddrick, who still accuses former President Bill Clinton of raping her in 1978. Women across social media used the hashtag #MeToo this week to spotlight sexual harassment after movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s fall from grace over decades of charges. Ms. Lewinsky published “#MeToo” Oct. 15, but she was chastised by Ms. Broaddrick on Thursday for her response when Mr. Clinton denied their affair in 1998. “Better late than never Monica Lewinsky’s ME TOO,” Ms. Broaddrick tweeted. “I have

Bush and President Obama are simultaneously campaigning against President Trump.

Former President George W. Bush offered an unmistakable denunciation of Trumpism Thursday without mentioning the president by name, urging citizens to oppose threats to American democracy. “Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication,” Bush warned in remarks at the Bush Institute’s Spirit of Liberty event in New York. By chance, Bush was standing in the same spot at the Time Warner Center where former President Barack Obama made a similar plea for democracy and American leadership in late September, shortly after President Donald Trump had finished a belligerent, isolationist speech to the United Nations

At an event hosted by the George W.

Boyden Elementary School´s principal sent a letter to parents this week saying that it had decided to cancel its traditional Halloween parade on October 31 because it was ´not inclusive of all students´ and was ´difficult´ for many. Without specifying which students the parade excluded, Principal Brendan Dearborn said the school would instead hold a ´black and orange spirit day´.  Children are allowed to dress in those colors but cannot come to school in costume.

For fark’s sake. The guy’s accused of rape, by more than one woman. What sort of behavior does she think “invited” that? Even his somewhat less egregious offenses are inexplicable in terms of an invitation. Does anyone think Lauren Sivan put out the vibe upon meeting famous Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein that she was hoping to watch him furtively whack it into a potted plant in a dark corner of an empty restaurant kitchen? The more aggressive harassment is, the harder it is to explain in terms of a misconstrued female “invitation.” Actual assault is plainly indefensible, yet here’s Eddie

The tale of Harvey Weinstein is now a thread that has tangled its way through Hollywood, connecting women, mostly actresses, in a depressingly common way. We all seem to have a Harvey story, each one a little different but with essentially the same nauseating pattern and theme. Women were bullied, cajoled, manipulated, and worse, and then punished. My Harvey story is different, mostly because of timing. I was in one of the first films that Weinstein produced. I accepted a supporting role in a small movie based on “Loser Takes All,” the short novel by Graham Greene. I was twenty years
