    The NFL will wrap itself in pink for breast cancer, and put on faux-camo to celebrate the military. Now, a group of players have asked commissioner Roger Goodell to spend a month talking about black and white. According to Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports, a group of four current and former players sent the league a memo in August asking for the NFL's help campaigning for racial equality and criminal justice reform. The letter was signed by Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett, Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins, retired wide receiver Anquan Boldin and Eagles wideout Torrey Smith. The 10-page letter to...

    Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens has assured black faith leaders in St. Louis that the rights of peaceful protesters will be protected if unrest occurs after a judge rules in a former police officer's murder trial. But after the meeting Monday at an AME church in St. Louis, the Republican governor stressed that any protest veering into violence will not be tolerated.

The Portland Police Department tweeted that marchers and residents should clear the area for their own safety, adding that officers reported protesters attacking photographers and that projectiles were thrown at officers. They said several arrests were made and at least one officer was injured.

    At least one sports television network president believes that national anthem protests last season were a factor in the decline of NFL ratings. On Wednesday during its annual NFL Media Day in New York City, CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus said research his network did internally indicated that the protests played some kind of role in declining average viewers. He was emphatic, however, that it was merely a factor and not the cause. The average television viewership for the 2016 NFL season dropped roughly 8% last year from 2015. “We did research and it was relatively proprietary research, to be...

    Protesters in Milwaukee want repeal of the Second Amendment.  The signs at the NRA Carry Guard Expo show the intentions of those who want a disarmed society. They are not talking half measures.

Outside the convention center, a small group gathered in opposition.“We don't need a provision in our constitution saying anyone has a right to have a gun,” said...

    Federal prosecutors in the District announced Tuesday that indictments have been issued for Turkish security officials who attacked peaceful protesters near the Turkish ambassador’s residence in May.

Superior Court grand jury issued indictments for 15 Turkish security officials and four civilians — two Americans and two Canadians — accusing them of conspiracy to commit a crime of violence during Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s visit to Washington in May. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia announced the indictments. Only two of the accused, both Americans, have been arrested: Sinan Narin, 45, of McLean, Virginia. and...

Upon further consideration, Reid reversed course.

    The fury surrounding the employment status of Colin Kaepernick has been taken to a new level, reaching full-blown froth on Wednesday night in the form of a rally at NFL headquarters attended by thousands to protest Kaepernick being unsigned by a team. [Snip] According to Tim Rohan of TheMMQB.com, the group of activists who organized the rally -- The People's Consortium for Human and Civil Rights, led by president Reverend Stephen Green -- had three demands of the NFL. That the NFL institute a policy to protect players' rights to have freedom of speech, so they can kneel, raise a...

    They’ve represented gun owners in some of the highest-profile cases to hit the courts in recent years, but the Second Amendment Foundation won’t defend groups that hold public armed protests, saying that crosses a line. “We are not a fan of armed protests and highly discourage that,” said Alan Gottlieb, the founder and executive vice president of the SAF. “Firearms serve a purpose, and the purpose is not a mouthpiece. It’s to defend yourself. If you are carrying it to make a political point, we are not going to support that.” In the wake of recent public protests by neo-Nazis,...

    President Trump is holding a rally in Phoenix, Arizona tonight, and he needs to get ready to rumble as paid actors will be there to disturb and create chaos. They were recruited from Craigslist…yet again.  It is not known who is paying them, but most likely it is the same billionaire, who has committed his life to destroying Western Civilization. However, lets face the fact those within our own government are helping him…bottom line. I do not know what time tonight Trump’s rally is, but my prayers are with him.

    Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett said last week that it would take a white player to kneel for the national anthem “to really get things changed.” Seth DeValve is testing that belief. The second-year Browns tight end knelt for “The Star-Spangled Banner” during Monday’s game in Cleveland against the Giants, part of a circle of more than a dozen players who bowed their heads in silent protest. They were flanked by several more teammates who stood and put their hands on the kneelers’ shoulders.

    This past week we had more evidence of the delusion of the progressive socialist left with their counter-protest in Boston and the anti-hate rally in Dallas. I have often wondered, and decided to write about it here, is anyone truly aware how abjectly oxymoronic the position of the liberal progressive left is at this time. And how utterly unhinged members of the Democratic Party and their acolytes in the leftist media have become. First of all, consider this group called Antifa, or "the resistance", whatever they are, these stuck on stupid kids running around with hoods and masks. Now, Antifa...

    At a protest over the weekend where Black Lives Matter activists and Antifa fanatics showed up together, one Antifa member wound up punching a Black Lives Matter activist after the Black Lives Matter member chastised the Antifa radicals for hiding behind their masks. The BLM activist stood in front of the Antifa crowd, bellowing, “Take the mask off! Take the mask off.” His compatriots started chanting, “Mask off! Mask off! Mask off!” That prompted the Antifa crowd to start yelling at the black man, “He’s a cop! He’s a cop! He’s a cop!”

    A group of alumni from one of the country's most influential evangelical Christian universities is condemning their school's president for his continued alignment with President Trump. A small but growing number of Liberty University graduates are preparing to return diplomas to their school. The graduates are protesting university President Jerry Falwell Jr.'s ongoing support for Trump. They began organizing after Trump's divisive remarks about the deadly white supremacist protests in Charlottesville, Va. Chris Gaumer, a former Student Government Association president and 2006 graduate, said it was a simple decision. "I'm sending my diploma back because the president of the United...

    I work for a college which is very liberal these days, in your face banners and condescending "workshops" open to all frequently, with "diversity credit" (reference below). It's sickening enough. Including having Moochelle Uhbama here the other year. But since Trump was elected, now we get hand-wringing e-mails about "hatred" and that we need to beware of evil right-wing people who cause violence (LOL). Got another one today.
