    Some NFL owners are considering a change to the league's national anthem policy that would possibly keep players in the locker room when the Star-Spangled Banner is played before football games, according to The Washington Post. Any policy change would have to be discussed after the season. “I think that if players are still kneeling at the end of the year, then it could very well happen,” an unnamed source told The Post.

    The interracial stuff isn’t cutting edge anymore. So Starbucks has to cap off this Christmas ad with lesbian lovebirds: ***VIDEO ON LINK**** Starbucks appears to confirm the allegation that a lesbian couple is featured on the company’s Christ-free Christmas cup: ***TWEET ON LINK*** Moonbats have finally found a use for Christmas; it can be an opportunity to thumb their noses at Christian values.

    Like it or not, America is locked in an ongoing culture war between those who support the country and the Constitution on the one side and those who want to tear America down and create a new, single-viewpoint nation in their image on the other side. This culture war seems to be pushed by an increasingly hostile and domineering far left. Instead of eagerly embracing debate, which is both the American Way and enshrined in the Constitution, elements of the progressive side are actively trying to shut that debate down. Oddly, considering their progressive, Bernie Sanders-like pro-socialism position in the...

    Fans of Sean Hannity have called for a boycott of Keurig after the coffee machine company joined at least two other companies to stop advertising on the Fox News show. On Friday, Keurig and Realtor.com announced on Twitter that they would stop advertising on Hannity’s shows after complaints about the host’s defense of embattled Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore... And plus-size fashion label Eloquii announced, “Hannity is blocked from our advertising list.” ...

    Keurig Caves to Media Matters, Faces Boycott Backlash from Outraged Sean Hannity Fans After Dropping Ads The popular Keurig single cup coffee machine maker is facing a boycott by outraged fans of conservative talk radio and TV icon Sean Hannity after the company caved to pressure from Democratic Party front group Media Matters for America after the group smeared Hannity over his comments about Alabama Republican U.S. Senate nominee Roy Moore and accusations reported by the Washington Post that Moore preyed on teenage girls when he was in his early thirties. Earlier on Saturday, Keurig tweeted to MMFA President Angelo...

    NEW YORK - Sales growth at Papa John's (PZZA) is slowing, and the pizza chain is blaming it on the outcry surrounding NFL players kneeling during the national anthem and falling NFL ratings. The company, which is a sponsor and advertiser of the NFL, said customers have a negative view of the chain's association with the NFL. The company also cut its earnings growth expectations for the year and Papa John's stock fell about 10 percent Wednesday. "NFL leadership has hurt Papa John's shareholders," said the chain's CEO, John Schnatter, in a call with analysts Wednesday. "This should have been...

    The San Francisco 49ers weighed in on the national firearms debate Thursday, announcing their $500,000 donation to push for more gun control and a ban on bump stocks. The team is partnering with local and national law enforcement in an effort to create a “safer America,” by banning silencers and and armor piercing rounds, according to ESPN writer Nick Wagoner.

    "A business owner in New England has found that a photo op with Donald Trump in the White House has a stiff price: his reputation and many of his customers. It's easy to see how your business could take lumps over politics. It's happened to the likes of Trump's own company as well as the restaurant chain Chick-fil-A and many others. And, as Dave Ratner, owner of Dave's Soda and Pet City chain, learned, even some business love from Trump can backfire."

    ESPN Magazine ^ | October 27, 2017 | Seth Wickersham and Don Van Natta Jr.
    Morale was bad inside the league office, and the pressure was not letting up. There was the looming notion that sponsors would leave the NFL -- not just because of the protests but because of an array of challenges confronting the league, including the continuing decline in TV ratings. Nearly all of the league's longtime sponsors, from Papa John's to USAA, were rattled, and fissures within the league offices and teams, to say nothing of the players, were starting to expand. [Snip] Polls show that the protest issue has resonated with millions of fans who insist all players should stand...

    Even if terrible reviews and the exploding scandal around Harvey Weinstein were not an issue, past as prologue informs us that director George Clooney’s Suburbicon would still be in trouble. While the Hollywood bubble, which includes the lackey entertainment media, likes to pretend Clooney is a Big Star, moviegoers disagree, most especially when it comes to the films he directs. Other than the forgettable mess that was Monuments Men, which squeaked over $75 million (and probably still lost money), American audiences have expressed a startling indifference towards everything Clooney’s directed. Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (2002) grossed just $16 million,...

    The NFL is experiencing an unprecedented backlash as players kneel during the National Anthem. The boycott is so bad that the Cleveland Browns, which gives away prizes to fans during games, selected an empty seat for a giveaway. [Snip] It is not known what the prize was, but whatever it was, it’s quite sad the team has resorted to keeping fans happy at FirstEnergy stadium with giveaways. What's even more sad is that the seat was empty. Several NFL stadiums are nearly empty post kick-off as the National Anthem controversy rolls into week 7. The Cleveland Browns are playing...

    It was a good night for California teams as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Chicago Cubs to move on to the World Series and the Oakland Raiders pulled off a last minute comeback over the Kansas City Chiefs to win at home. Ending a four-game losing streak for the Bay Area team, that 31-30 victory on Thursday Night Football also came as Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch was booted out of the game for bumping hard into a line judge. In the first NFL game since the league issued its non-rule on whether players would be made to stand...

    no link, just an observation.... open to correction...BUT. While October has been hyped in the media as a "pink" month, standing for breast cancer research, have you noticed that THIS year, the Susan G Komen Foundation--big Planned Parenthood funders--are NOT mentioned prominently? I wonder if SGK is still behind these efforts, but are choosing to mute its involvement. Recall a few years back many of us chose to STOP donating to Komen when the organization BACKTRACKED on a pledge to stop giving money to the abortion mills.

    Just logged on to see who was winning the game. I hated to see that Camping World was the main sponsor of the ALCS and the NLCS. The CEO of Camping World is a virulent anti-Trumper. He even said people who voted for Trump need not give him any business...or something like that. See ya, Championship Series. I hope the World Series isn't sponsored by a Trump hater.

    Woman all over the world have joined a call to boycott Twitter over the platform's treatment of actress Rose McGowan.

    It appears Jamele Hill gave more Americans than she hope an idea when she urged protesters to - 'hit them in the wallet' - but this time it is a Louisiana sheriff's office that is boycotting Ford over the automaker's decision to support NFL players' right to peacefully protest during the national anthem. As a reminder, earlier in the week NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell flip-flopped from his original anti-Trump stance, issuing a statement that: "We believe that everyone should stand for the National Anthem... We also care deeply about our players and respect their opinions and concerns about critical social...

Sheriff Whittington calls on other law enforcement agencies and leaders to take a stand against Ford Motor Co. and the disrespectful National Football League. Sheriff Whittington - "The recent events surrounding the NFL, its players and their audacity to thumb their collective noses at the American flag, the American military as well as the obvious disdain for the profession of law enforcement in general forces me to take a stand."
