    Former President Barack Obama says he aspires to create "a million young Barack Obamas or Michelle Obamas" who will pick up the baton in what he describes as the "relay race that is human progress." At a conference in Japan on Sunday, the former president spoke about how he hopes the Obama Foundation, a nonprofit formed in January 2014, will help achieve his post-presidential aims. "After I left office, what I realized is that the Obama Foundation could potentially create a platform for young, up-and-coming leaders, both in the United States and all around the world to come together, meet...

    Politico Europe ^ | 3/7/18, 12:46 PM CET | Hans von der Burchard and Jakob Hanke
    The EU is set to hit a wide range of American products — ranging from yachts to peanut butter — with duties of 25 percent to retaliate against President Donald Trump’s tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum. The products targeted, as shown in a list obtained by Politico, are chosen so as not to harm EU industries, which do not need these imports. Some targets clearly gun for politically sensitive Republican-run states. […] In agriculture, the EU will go after kidney beans, bourbon whiskey, rice, cranberries, orange juice, peanut butter, tobacco and cheroots. […] In the industrial sector, the...

    Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) yesterday offered a tearful apology on the Senate floor for comparing the alleged abuse of prisoners by American troops to techniques used by the Nazis, the Soviets and the Khmer Rouge, as he sought to quell a frenzy of Republican-led criticism. Durbin, the Democratic whip, acknowledged that "more than most people, a senator lives by his words" but that "occasionally words will fail us and occasionally we will fail words." Choking up, he said: "Some may believe that my remarks crossed the line. To them, I extend my heartfelt apologies." He singled out the victims...

    While national anthem protests have slowed around the NFL, it has still dominated national conversation throughout this season. So what if such protests — namely kneeling — were to surface at the Super Bowl? Fred Gaudelli, the executive producer of the Super Bowl, told reporters Tuesday night that the network would indeed capture any kneeling at the game. "It was a pretty big story in our country this fall,” Gaudelli said Tuesday. “The Super Bowl is a live event, just like ‘Sunday Night Football.’ When you’re covering a live event, you’re covering whats happening. “So if there are players that...

    Donald Trump this morning tweeted another love letter to Fox News Channel’s morning show Fox and Friends, faux-asking “Was @foxandfriends just named the most influential show in news?” On Wednesday, web site Mediaite had named the FNC morning show the Most Influential In News Media for 2017, topping a list that also included, in reverse order, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Matt Drudge, FNC star Sean Hannity, and CNN chief Jeff Zucker. Mistaking Mediaite’s “most influential” for “best,” Trump crowed that the Trump News Network morning show hosts “deserve it” and that “the many Fake News Hate Shows should study your formula...

    Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was the surprise honoree at the ACLU of Southern California’s annual awards dinner Sunday night, accepting the Eason Monroe Courageous Advocate Award for his kneeling protests against the national anthem that sparked a movement across the NFL. Mr. Kaepernick’s appearance, which was not announced prior to the event at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, was met with a standing ovation. “We all have an obligation no matter the risk, and regardless of reward, to stand up for our fellow men and women who are being oppressed with the understanding that human...

    On Thanksgiving, Washington Post readers turned to the front page of the Style section for the annual “Native American” lecture on “Hatesgiving.” It was a food article by Maura Judkis. The online headline was “Native American chefs lament 'Columbusing'of indigenous foods.” Judkis began: Earlier this fall, Karlos Baca, an indigenous food activist known for cooking beautiful foraged meals using traditional Native American ingredients and cooking methods, was approached by a regional food magazine: Would he like to provide a recipe for their Thanksgiving issue? "Instead of getting a recipe from me, they got three pages of activism," he says. Baca,...

  • Jerry Jones Forfeiting Cowboys Reportedly Discussed by Owners over Goodell Saga

    NFL owners have reportedly brought up the idea of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones forfeiting the franchise. On Sunday, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk cited a league source who said "multiple owners already have been discussing the possibility, which flows from Article VIII of the NFL's Constitution and Bylaws." One of the sections of the article allows the commissioner to essentially force the forfeiture of a team if the owner "has been or is guilty of conduct detrimental to the welfare of the league or professional football" and a $500,000 fine is deemed "not adequate or sufficient." Florio granted...

    California’s NAACP is pushing for state lawmakers to support a campaign to remove "The Star Spangled Banner" as the country's national anthem. The group says the song, which has been a point of controversy in the NFL, is "one of the most racist, pro-slavery, anti-black songs in the American lexicon," The Sacramento Bee reported Tuesday. The NAACP’s California chapter last week reportedly sent out two resolutions, which had been passed at the organizations state conference last month. One of the resolutions was to support the removal of the anthem, while the other is an effort to get the NFL to...

    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Fox News Radio host Todd Starnes tied the controversy over President Trump’s call to a Gold Star widow to NFL protests over racial injustice and what Gingrich claimed is the “truly anti-American” nature of much of the left. In a conversation with Gingrich on his radio program, Starnes called criticism of Trump’s comments to Myeshia Johnson an “ugly attempt by the media to take a swipe at the president.” “There’s a bloc of people, unfortunately, who hate Trump so deeply that they spend all day every day trying to find some way to smear...

    National Review ^ | October 9, 2017 | Jennifer C. Braceras
    Bashing Christopher Columbus has long been de rigueur among the liberal elite. Today, it has infiltrated our nation’s classrooms and poisons our public discourse. You know the mantra: Columbus was a greedy and egomaniacal villain who brought slavery, disease, “genocide,” and ecological ruin to a previously undisturbed land. Rather than honor this legacy of “hate,” the argument goes, Americans should celebrate the peaceful indigenous peoples who populated this hemisphere long before their lands were stolen by European explorers. The war against Columbus is cloaked in the lexicon of “diversity” and the rhetoric of “inclusion.” But what many of its foot...

    I have often wondered how I missed the coming tragedy. It is not so much that I should have predicted that Americans would elect Donald Trump. It’s just that I shouldn’t have put it past us. It was tough to keep track of the currents of politics and pageantry swirling at once. All my life I had seen myself, and my people, backed into a corner. Had I been wrong? Watching the crowds at county fairs cheer for Michelle Obama in 2008, or flipping through the enchanting photo spreads of the glamorous incoming administration, it was easy to believe that...

    What new Fox Sports analyst Michael Vick really did Leave a comment By Friendly Curmudgeon, September 5, 2017 at 12:43 pm Fox Sports announced August 27 that it has hired former NFL quarterback Michael Vick as a studio analyst for its NFL Kickoff program that immediately precedes NFL Sunday on the Fox network. The news release announcing the hire was hilarious in the way it avoided the elephant in the room; namely, Vick’s 2007 felony conviction for operating an illegal dog-fighting ring and subsequent year-and-a-half stint in federal prison. As mostly everyone knows, Vick was a successful quarterback for the...

    REVEALED: Clinton/Obama Ties To NFL Media Insider By Lawrence Richard 6:20pm September 26, 2017 A behind-the-scenes look into the NFL’s decision making, following the National Anthem protests and President Donald Trump’s accompanying comments, has the finger prints of two former Presidents all over it. It is being reported that former President Bill Clinton’s Press Secretary is now the NFL’s spokesman. Per WSJ: Roger Goodell is an early riser who is often up by 5:30 a.m. Traveling away from home on Saturday, the NFL commissioner woke to an unexpected crisis: The multibillion-dollar sports empire he manages was under attack by the...

    Multi-Billion Dollar Stadiums: The Seen vs. the Horrid Unseen By Allan Golombek September 27, 2017 In 1995, the Los Angeles Rams moved to St. Louis, extracting hundreds of millions of dollars from taxpayers to help build a new stadium. After 20 years in the Gateway City, the Rams moved right back where they came from – leaving the people of St. Louis and Missouri stuck with a $6 million a year tab to pay for an empty football field. American taxpayers spend billions of dollars a year to lure professional sports teams from one place to another in one of...

    President Trump says players who protested the National Anthem being played before games should be fired from their teams over the weekend, and the whole world exploded. Yesterday, America was treated to NFL players taking a knee, or sitting or locking arms while the national anthem was being played in protest of what the President said. Well, guess what? They weren’t protesting a President, they were giving a big middle finger to the country. That flag and that song should be a unifying moment, a moment to say ‘no matter what differences we have, we are all American, and it’s...
