    President Trump touted former pitcher Curt Schilling on Tuesday after he announced he was “absolutely considering” running for Congress as a Republican in Arizona. “Curt Schilling, a great pitcher and patriot, is considering a run for Congress in Arizona. Terrific!” Trump tweeted. The president’s Twitter encouragement comes just hours after the Arizona Republic published a report saying Schilling was mulling a run.
  • Curt Schilling snubbed by Baseball Hall of Fame; Trump Tweets His Support

    “Curt Schilling deserves to be in the Baseball Hall of Fame,” President Trump tweeted Sunday evening. “Great record, especially when under pressure and when it mattered most. Do what everyone in Baseball knows is right!”  Curt Shilling didn’t get into Cooperstown this year but maybe next year or someday. Perhaps his improved voting numbers are due to the Trump effect. Or his support for Trump has made him persona non grata in baseball circles. He wasn’t selected but, Mariano Rivera, the greatest reliever in history, was on the ballot for the first time and received 100% of the writers’ votes, a...

    The former Red Sox pitcher joins Roseanne Barr as a promoter of perhaps the Internet’s most convoluted tangle of Trump-friendly hoo-hah. Baseball great Curt Schilling has quite a story he’d like to share—and it’s not about his famous “bloody sock” World Series game. On Tuesday, the retired Boston Red Sox pitcher promoted a video on his Facebook page explaining the pro-Trump QAnon conspiracy, which posits that President Trump and his allies in the military are about to sweep away a cabal of globalist elites responsible for all the evil in the world. The byzantine QAnon theory, which centers on anonymous...
  • Why are ESPN, MGM and Other American Companies Purposely Committing Suicide?

    It's happening all over America. Liberal CEOs appear to be purposely committing brand suicide. Their cardinal sin is arrogance and ignorance. Remarkably, they don't even understand their own customers’ base. ESPN and Vegas casino giant MGM Resorts International should serve as Exhibit A. Vegas and ESPN have much in common. ESPN has committed suicide with its obsession with liberal, progressive, politically correct beliefs. The fact is Vegas’s core audience is exactly the same as ESPN’s. Vegas’s audience has three key demographics: A) Middle America. Overwhelmingly this group voted for Donald Trump. B) Conventioneers. This group is composed of business owners,...
  • Curt Schilling Slams Liz Warren: Senator ‘Lieawatha’ Represents ‘Everything We Hate About Politics’

    Former baseball star Curt Schilling is reportedly planning to run for Senate in Massachusetts against incumbent Elizabeth Warren, and he’s wasting no time attacking his would-be opponent. Warren, a favorite politician among the liberal activists, represents “everything we hate about politics,” the former Red Sox pitcher said during an radio interview on the Larry O’Connor show. Schilling thinks he could be successful against Warren because of the “disconnect” between the politics of average voters in Massachusetts and the senator’s left-wing beliefs. “As I talk about potentially running for Senate and running against ‘Lieawatha,’ I’ve talked about the fact that the...

    No kidding. Very happy news for me yesterday: Detroit Tiger Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez was voted into the Hall of Fame. (What? He played for some other teams as well? I don’t care.) Magglio Ordonez deserved better than his one-year-and-out fate. Carlos Guillen deserved better than zero votes. You may disagree, and you might even care about players who never played for the Tigers, although I can’t imagine why. But that’s one of the things the Hall of Fame elections are for - debate among fans.

    Baseball legend Curt Schilling has been slammed for praising a T-shirt that advocates lynching journalists. The All-Star pitcher, 49, who is a vocal Donald Trump supporter, shared a photo of the 'offensive' T-shirt on Twitter. The black top features the slogan: 'Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some assembly required.' Alongside the photo, Schilling commented: 'Ok, so much awesome here...'

    Former Red Sox pitcher and current political neophyte Curt Schilling held a Trump “rally” outside Boston’s city on Saturday, but uh, it wasn’t much of a rally. According to folks passing by, there were around 10 or 15 people in attendance to see the three-time World Series champ. He was pictured with a dejected gaze on his face.

    The former major league pitcher has had political aspirations for some time Curt Schilling, who pitched for parts of 20 seasons in the major leagues and won 216 career games, has announced his intention to run for U.S. Senate against Democrat Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts. Here's what Schilling said on Tuesday: Schilling, 49, self-identifies as a conservative, and has established himself as a controversial political gadfly since retiring from baseball in 2007. Schilling previously said he would run for president in 2020 or 2024. As for Warren, 67, she's in her first term in the Senate. In 2012, she defeated...

    You want a friend in Washington? Get a dog. That is a quote often attributed to President Harry S Truman, although he was not the first, or the last, politician to utter the remark. It is a remark that could also be used for politics in general, as in: You want a friend in politics. Get a dog, or maybe two. You will need all the friends you can get
  • Why Hasn't ESPN Disciplined Jemele Hill For Political Tweet About The Orlando Shootings?

    Earlier this year, ESPN sent a memo to its employees that tells them to refrain from making political statements. But it seems as if the policy has a double standard. Jemele Hill, a co-host on ESPN2′s His & Hers, tweeted Sunday that it’s wrong for Americans to condemn homophobia in Islamic cultures, given the discrimination that gay people have faced in the United States. The tweet was a response to the reaction following the Orlando shootings, where a gunman pledged allegiance to ISIS before killing 49 people and wounding 53 more inside of a popular gay nightclub early Sunday morning.

    Despite the moral and legal implications, the fact is that this is a local issue, and big corporations and the federal government are doing all they can to bully local governments and State governments into compliance...or else. Is that freedom? Baseball Great Curt Schilling was fired by ESPN for daring to share the image and message shown on his personal social media page. The sports network considers Mr. Schilling’s personal opinion about the perverted mental illness of transgenderism to be discrimination. I don’t care how nice these people may seem to liberals, and how much they want to pat themselves...

    Curt Schilling was recently fired by ESPN in large part because of his frequent social-media activity, specifically controversial memes and comments shared by the former pitcher. So when reports circulated online that ESPN had cut Schilling’s memorable “bloody sock” performance in the 2004 ALCS from its Sunday airing of a “30 for 30″ documentary about that Red Sox-Yankees showdown, it was no surprise to see him weigh in quickly, and strongly.

    One week after being fired from ESPN after commenting on and promoting a controversial anti-transgender meme on his Facebook page, Curt Schilling is firing back at his former employers. In a one-hour guest appearance on SiriusXM Satellite Radio’s “Breitbart News Patriot Forum,” the former pitcher-turned-analyst flatly accused the sports network of being biased against political conservatives and having inconsistent standards when it comes to reprimanding on-air talent. According to Newsday, Schilling's commentary was recorded on Wednesday afternoon and is scheduled to air at 8 a.m. Thursday morning. Here's just a sampling of what he had to say. “It was apparent...

    We are in the midst of a top-down sexual revolution, being forced on the public by the massed power of media, corporations, and governments in thrall to the small but powerful sexual minority intent on redefining sexuality.  Those who dare to oppose them, especially with mockery, can see their livelihoods destroyed.  They cannot handle mockery, because their latest cause is absurd and based on lies. Curt Schilling, a hero to Red Sox Nation and a highly regarded baseball analyst for CNN, dared to protest and mock the forcible intrusion of males on women’s restrooms.  As The New York Times...

    “A man is a man no matter what they call themselves,” read Schilling’s comment, which he apparently posted in response to a photo about a recent North Carolina law that restricts transgender people’s access to bathrooms and locker rooms. “I don’t care what they are, who they sleep with, men’s room was designed for the penis, women’s not so much. Now you need laws telling us differently? Pathetic.” ESPN issued a statement on Tuesday, saying “ESPN is an inclusive company. Curt Schilling has been advised that his conduct was unacceptable and his employment with ESPN has been terminated...”

    In January, a Deadspin report uncovered a leaked ESPN memo, urging on-air talent to avoid making political statements. The memo — which ESPN claims was circulated in early January — requires employees to “refrain from political editorializing, personal attacks or ‘drive-by’ comments regarding the candidates and their campaigns (including but not limited to on platforms such as Twitter or other social media).
