    It was, of course, Veteran’s Day weekend and NFL teams found various ways to commemorate. The 49ers had a line of men and women who are serving or have served our country in the armed forces. That was cool enough, but Kittle made sure that he honored each and every one of them with a handshake.

Maria Lisante, who owns La Bella Pizza Bistro, said on “The Ingraham Angle” on Friday that the protesters were "opposed" to the flag and thus defaced the mural. "They didn't want a flag. They thought that it meant a political position and they were opposed," Lisante said.

    You graduated high school in 2011. Your teenage years were a struggle. You grew up on the wrong side of the tracks. Your mother was the leader of the family and worked tirelessly to keep a roof over your head and food on your plate. Academics were a struggle for you and your grades were mediocre at best. The only thing that made you stand out is you weighed 225 lbs and could run 40 yards in 4.2 seconds while carrying a football. Your best friend was just like you, except he didn’t play football. Instead of going to football...

    Former NFL player Martellus Bennett slammed President Trump for his ongoing criticism of football athletes’ protests during the national anthem. "It's the easiest way for him to attack the culture of black people," Bennett said in an interview with the Bleacher Report. "He sees the black athlete as someone that black people look up to,” Bennett continued. “So he thinks you can attack black culture by attacking black NFL players.” "Also, attacking black players helps him with his base. I think, too, maybe there's no rhyme or reason. Maybe he's just an asshole,” added Bennett, who won a Super Bowl...

    Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki: "I look at the latest developments, including Helsinki, where it might have been that one president of our neighboring country (Putin) was pressuring the U.S. president for concessions. But I have not seen any concessions, neither as regards the annexation of Crimea nor the war in Ukraine," Morawiecki said. "None of the voices that were appearing beforehand as hypothetically possible - concessions by the United States - have materialized. So I don't see where he (Trump) has made any significant concessions. Poland is the biggest former communist country in both the European Union and NATO,...

    Former FBI Director James Comey slammed President Trump for appearing to side with Russian president Vladimir Putin over his denial of involvement in the 2016 election. “This was the day an American president stood on foreign soil next to a murderous lying thug and refused to back his own country,” Comey said in a tweet hours after Trump’s controversial press conference with Putin in Helsinki. “Patriots need to stand up and reject the behavior of this president,” said Comey, who was fired by Trump last year during his investigation into possible collusion between the Trump White House and Russia.

    The Daily Caller recently had an opportunity to talk with the sentinels who guard the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. “Many people think that the ultimate sacrifice is giving up your life. But these soldiers gave up not only their lives but their identities,” Staff Sergeant Shane Vincent said. “When you see a World War II veteran struggling to get out of his wheelchair so that he can stand during taps and salute during taps, that really hits home and lets you know exactly what this place really is about.

    So what did you do? If you had a moment of weakness and watched the game, you can also confess here. My family? We ordered Out Back takeout and relaxed at home. Since we have never watched “Ash Versus Evil Dead” we started binge watching Season 1. It’s a hoot and the actor (Bruce Campbell) who plays the lead character bears an uncanny resemblance to Mitt Romney.
