  • Adam Jones on why no MLB player is protesting like Colin Kaepernick: 'Baseball is a white man’s

    Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones thinks he knows why no Major League Baseball player has publicly refused to stand during the national anthem like San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and others around the world of sports. "Baseball is a white man’s sport," Jones told USA Today. In the NFL, 68% of the players are African American; that compares with just 8% in the MLB. On opening day this spring, just 69 African American players were on teams’ rosters or disabled lists. "We already have two strikes against us already, so you might as well not kick yourself out of...

Speaking to weekend talk radio host Aaron Klein, Jones slammed Hillary as a "two-faced" "liar" who waged a war on women by trying to discredit "predator" Bill's sexual accusers. "And how dare her.

Anthony Tata, the Republican secretary of transportation in North Carolina and a veteran with nearly three decades of military experience, is preparing to run in a primary against the longtime GOP House member, according to a half-dozen sources with knowledge of the planned campaign. One source close to Tata, granted anonymity to speak candidly, said the secretary is "seriously looking" at a campaign but cautioned there was not yet a timetable for his decision.

"Got a lot of soul searching to do," Jones posted on his official Twitter account Tuesday. "Sorry to everyone I've let down."

    An excellent article at National Review touches on a premise that many aren’t talking about enough. The main point of the article is that the war on police is about control (similar to the control of healthcare via Obamacare). This point needs to be expanded upon, so everyone understands that Obama’s vision of a civilian-army may be at the heart of the means-justify-the-ends violence induced by fabricated war-cries of “racism” and “civil-rights” violations. Think about what Obama asked for in a recent speech? Obama called for cameras on every police officer. On the surface, this sounds like a great idea....

Taylor Griffin, the GOP primary challenger to 3rd district incumbent Walter Jones, put himself in Laura’s hot seat on Tax Day. Griffin is painting himself as a “conservative” alternative to Jones. Ingraham defended Jones, painting him as a solid social conservative with a more populist, Pat Buchanan-style Republicanism.
