    48hrs After Black Players Break White QB's Back For Standing For Anthem, Chiefs Star Sends Sick Message To Furious Fans ...... Protests within the NFL have taken a nasty racist turn over the past several weeks, after Seahawks player Michael Bennett started a sick new trend where black players are now rendering black power salutes anytime they sack a white player on the field. The NFL has an even bigger scandal brewing however, after white Raiders quarterback Derek Carr had his back broken over the weekend during a tackle, where some sports commentators are speculating that Carr’s all-black offensive line...

Tuesday morning at Orrs Elementary School, 10-year-old Jason Newberry said he and one classmate put their hand over their heart while reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.

Newberry said it wasn't until his second period teacher showed them a news clip of NFL players...

    At a rally in Alabama on Friday night, President Donald Trump railed against National Football League players who have protested the national anthem. He said players who disrespect the flag and refuse to stand for the national anthem should be ejected from the stadium and cut from the team. "Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'Get that son of a b**** off the field right now - he's fired!'" Trump said.

    I check CNN's front page every now and then just to see what they're covering, or if they are covering anything important other than bashing Trump 24/7. The headline "Trump gets a taste for pulling the trigger" caught my eye. I was weakened by temptation due to the childish nature of the headline and decided to scan the article. Then I saw phrases/words like this: "In just the last week, the rookie commander in chief has presided over the use of some of the most powerful weaponry in the US arsenal" "he is one President who relishes ordering the use...

    I was a police officer for 36 years. Prior to being a police officer I served six years in the U.S. Air Force, four on active duty and two in the reserves. Before that, my fondest memories, while growing up, are of going to the VFW with my dad on Friday night for their fish fry or clam bake. When I was in high school I played on that VFW Post’s Drum & Bugle Corps. My Dad served in the Merchant Marine during WW II, and recounted having been torpedoed once while on a North Atlantic convoy. All of my...

    While disappointing, YAF program officer Amy Lutz commended the efforts by the conservatives at Occidental for doing their part to remember what today means for millions of Americans “It’s a shame that leftists would target such a heartfelt memorial, but this is just further evidence that the 9/11 Never Forget Project is more important than ever,” said Lutz. “Kudos to the conservatives at Occidental for bringing this important memorial to their campus.” YAF’s 9/11 Memorial Project began in 2003.

    Seattle’s full team interlocked arms and stood on the sideline. “Unity,” was their idea. Unity of a team asking for a more unified community. Cornerback Jeremy Lane, who took a knee during Seattle’s game last week, joined the team in locked arms. So the players agreed to act like a team with one voice here. On the Dolphins, four players - Arian Foster, Kenny Stills, Michael Thomas and Jelani Jenkins - stood during a ceremony for the 9-11 victims on Sunday’s 15th anniversary. They then dropped to a knee at the start of the anthem. The rest of the team...

Obama made his remarks during a press conference in China at the G-20 world leader’s summit. Obama admitted that it was “tough thing” for people to see Kaepernick disrespect the flag and the people...

    Paramount Pictures is releasing 13 Hours: Secret Soldiers of Benghazi nation-wide on Friday. It tells the story of the attack on two U.S. diplomatic outposts in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 that took four American lives, including that of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya. Despite claims from Paramount and director Michael Bay that the film isn't political (the book on which it's based certainly wasn't), The Hollywood Reporter has noted that it's being marketed specifically to conservatives. So they're specifically targeting one side of the political aisle while more or less neglecting the other? Well, yeah. You don't shop...

"Iran envelops the entire world with its tentacles of terror," he said. "This is what Iran is doing now, without a nuclear weapon. Imagine what Iran would do with a nuclear weapon."
