    President Donald Trump was chastised Monday after video footage showed him goofing off as the national anthem played during a Super Bowl party at his West Palm Beach golf resort. As everyone else around Trump (including his wife and youngest son) stood solemnly with their hands over their hearts, Trump fidgeted, waved his hands, pointed at people and pretended to conduct the music. The video of the president cutting up during the anthem, first reported by the Miami Herald, was part of an Instagram story posted by a real estate agent at the party, which was held for a select...

    Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla) is demanding that persons who mock members of Congress be prosecuted. "The Constitution says that members of Congress shall not be questioned in any other place," Wilson asserted. "Yet, even the shallowest dive into the Internet bumps into numerous criticisms, insults and threats. Not a day goes by when someone isn't calling for voters to oust me from office. This has got to stop." "We're going to shut them down and work with whoever it is to shut them down and they should be prosecuted," the Congresswoman promised. "Freedom of speech does not protect 'hate speech.'...

    Starbucks Corp on Sunday apologized after an employee at one of its stores in Tempe, Arizona asked six police officers to leave or move out of a customer’s line of sight, triggering social media backlash. The officers had visited the store on July 4 and had paid for the drinks, before one company employee approached them about a customer not feeling safe because of the police presence, the Tempe Officers Association said on Twitter. “This treatment of public safety workers could not be more disheartening. While the barista was polite, making such a request at all was offensive,” the association...

    Church Titanic Is Drowning While Francis Sits Before Blessed Sacrament Pope Francis presided on Saturday night at the Panama World Youth Day an adoration. He again refused to knee(l) before the Blessed Sacrament. Instead, he sat aside on a chair. The monstrance used was made of two parts, a beautiful representation of Our Lady holding the Blessed Sacrament between her hand. It was placed on two ugly and very disturbing “legs”. During the adoration sentimental pop music with religious texts was played. The style was comparable to Celine Dion’s song “My Heart Will Go On” which was compiled for the...

    Despite mounting pressure from Granite State political leaders, Sen. Maggie Hassan is defending her decision to keep intern Caitlin Marriott on the job and instead used the intern’s profane attack on the president as an opportunity to attack Donald Trump. Calls for Marriott’s firing began as soon as news broke that the person who shouted “Mr. President, F— you!” at the Commander-in-Chief as he walked through the Capitol building was an intern in Hassan’s DC office. Instead, Hassan has suspended the intern for a week and had her ID badge revoked, and she defended her decision by pointing to the...

    Again And Again – Francis Refuses to Kneel In Front of the Blessed Sacrament Pope Francis celebrated a Corpus Christi Mass on June 3 in Ostia near Rome. In his homily he focused on Jesus [allegedly] preparing for us “a place and a meal”. The procession after Mass was led by another priest. In the first row behind the monstrance went a group of women wearing white albs, looking like deaconesses.Francis precided the concluding with the Eucharistic Blessing. A kneeler was prepared standing in front of the altar. As usually Francis refused to kneel or bow his knee before the...

    With Memorial Day weekend upon us, it's not all about a day off and a barbeque, it's about honoring and remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Really, it's something we should be doing all year long, but in Hollywood it's the opposite. They seem to take joy in dragging down our military. I guess it's too much to expect them to show some respect and gratitude to those who defend their right to free speech, though, isn't it? Let's take a look at 5 ways in which Hollywood portrayed the military unfairly on TV this season.

    A stolen food truck has been found a couple days after it went missing but it has been completely gutted. The truck was found in Commerce City. Genevieve Hardin bought the “What Would Cheesus Do?” truck in February, taking over the food truck serving up gourmet grilled cheese with a theme. “This is my business. This is my life. I have poured everything into this,” she said after the truck was stolen. Since it was found, Hardin says she plans to rebuild and that the set back will only make her stronger. Hardin’s family has set up a GoFundMe...

    Attendees at the Valero Alamo Bowl booed the Stanford University Band during its halftime performance after the bandsmen mocked the border wall, Whataburger, and all things Texan. The performance came during the California university’s bowl game versus Texas Christian University (TCU). TCU responded by defeating the Stanford Cardinals. The Stanford marching band, known for satirical halftime performances, poked fun at Texan’s state pride, the border wall proposed by President Donald Trump, horned frogs (the TCU mascot), and Whataburger (the iconic Texas hamburger chain), KSAT reported. Audience members booed the band loudly when they mocked the border wall, and even louder...

    Fellow Freepers, I have posted before and will post again, the music coming over the Spanish-language stations in the United States is largely intolerable in its content. You need to get a fluently bilingual friend to listen to the Norteno-type "country" Mexican music and report what is heard. Just this afternoon, driving home from work, the music coming from a station in Austin, 107.1 FM, was so bad that I wanted to shut the station down immediately. If such music were produced in the English language with the same messaage towards the Spanish-speaking community as they sing out over our...

    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...

    PALDING COUNTY, GA (CBS46) - Two students at a metro Atlanta elementary school say they were singled out for what they did during the Pledge of Allegiance. 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.

    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...
