    President Donald Trump on Tuesday won dismissal of a lawsuit in which three protesters accused him of “inciting to riot,” after they were roughed up at a March 2016 campaign rally in Louisville, Kentucky during Trump’s White House run. By a 3-0 vote, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the protesters did not state a valid claim under Kentucky law against Trump or his campaign, and Trump’s speech was protected by the First Amendment because he did not specifically advocate violence. Henry Brousseau, Kashiya Nwanguma and Molly Shah said they had planned a peaceful protest at the March...

    Week one of the regular NFL season kicked off this weekend with a wimper - the ratings were at a 10-year low. ... Americans are fed up with athletes kneeling during the National Anthem and it showed - plenty of empty seats plagued stadiums on Sunday. [Snip] On Sunday, Miami Dolphins wide receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson kicked off their first game one of the NFL season by taking a knee during the National Anthem and Colin Kaepernick celebrated. The constant protests on the field are destroying the NFL. The President slammed the NFL on Sunday for their abysmal...
  • NFL caves to Left, refuses to implement new policy prohibiting on-field protests during Anthem

    The National Sentinel ^ | 9/9/18 | USA Features
    Cowardly: NFL officials have decided to cave on its newly-implemented — then suspended — rule that prohibits players from protesting during the playing of the National Anthem either by kneeling or sitting on the bench. So in other words, the new policy will be no policy at all, meaning players are going to be free to continue to disrespect the American flag, the military, and the country in general during opening ceremonies.
  • New poll says Russians' social panic hasn't spiked so sharply since eve of 1998 financial collapse

    Meduza Russia ^ | 6 Sep 2018
    A new national survey by the independent Levada Center indicates that social tensions across the country are rising at levels not seen since the eve of Russia’s 1998 financial collapse. Seventy-two percent of Russians say they worry about rising prices, 52 percent cited growing impoverishment, and 48 percent say one of the nation’s biggest problems is unemployment. In the past year, Russians have become roughly 33 percent more likely to talk about economic crisis, environmental deterioration, and rising crime, the Levada Center director Lev Gudkov told the newspaper Kommersant. Sociologists say it’s still hard to know if rising panic will...

    Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has said the news of Donald Trump’s visit to Ireland came out of the blue for the government, and argued the US president should be respected. Mr Varadkar said there is a standing invitation for any US president to come to Ireland. Speaking on the Marty Squad on RTE Radio 1, the Taoiseach said the Government had not known until a couple of days ago. “There is an open invitation to the US president to visit Ireland at any time, I think they’ve all visited since Reagan, if not before and obviously there’s an open invitation for...

    The US Secret Service will send their Men In Black to do a security sweep of Dublin and Doonbeg ahead of Donald Trump’s visit in November. White House confirmation of the two-day trip presents a headache for the Defence Forces who will be braced for large-scale protests. A source said a massive Garda and security operation is needed to safeguard the US President, who met with huge protests on a recent trip to the UK. Trump stirred up a political storm during the four-day visit after criticising British Prime Minister Teresa May in a newspaper interview. He was then snubbed...

    A man in a Trump shirt went into the crowd of protestors and punched a man in the face, in plain sight of police officers. The man wearing the Trump shirt was arrested and has been taken from the scene. The other man has also been taken away in handcuffs. Tensions have been building outside the rally as anti-Trump protesters clash with the President’s loyal support base. Inside the rally, at the Ford Centre in Evansville Indiana, another protestor was ejected minutes after Trump started speaking. After Trump noticed the incident he said “Where the hell did you come from?”...

    Once again, the news -- national, local, TV, newspaper, radio -- is totally devoid of any mention of NFL protests during yesterday's games. As I pointed out last week, this is overt propaganda by omission. The drivebys understand painful reality. If they publicize such sorry behaviour, it undermines political correctness. And it means fewer votes for progressives. I defy any Freeper to come up with any story, pro or con, regarding player protests yesterday. Not there.

    **SNIP** Boyle is a Legal Observer with the Chicago chapter of the National Lawyers Guild, an 81-year-old organization of left-leaning lawyers who support progressive causes, founded as a counterweight to the famously conservative American Bar Association, which excluded African-Americans from membership until 1943. There are about 100 Legal Observers with the Chicago chapter, trained volunteers whose job is to watch police during a protest, record any alleged violations of civil liberties and, according to the group’s directive, serve “as a deterrent to unconstitutional behavior.” **SNIP** “My job with the Lawyers Guild was to mobilize law students to help out (as...

    Chapel Hill, N.C. — At least seven people were arrested after a group of protesters gathered Saturday on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to demonstrate just days after the controversial Silent Sam statue was toppled. A small group began gathering on campus at about 10 a.m., and protesters chanted "no platform for white supremacists" after a man showed up in clothing reminiscent of a Confederate soldier. That man, Casey Becknell, came to the protest from Davidison County to show support for the Silent Sam statue that was torn down when about 300 people gathered...

    BOSTON (WCVB/CNN) - A neighbor of the Samuel Adams brewery in Boston has hung up a sign aimed at shaming the brewery's founder for his remarks at a dinner with President Donald Trump. The sign says “Shame!” and “Sam Adams (heart) Trump.” It’s a response to Jim Koch, the founder of Sam Adams producer Boston Beer Company, endorsing Trump’s tax cuts. The sign is visible from the brewery parking lot. The person who hung it said he wants an apology from Sam Adams' CEO himself. "It's only been up a couple of days,” said Jeremy Phillips, who created the sign....

    The man who destroyed Trump's Hollywood Walk of Fame star wants a gold star. Last month, a man carrying a pickaxe smashed the star into smithereens. On Wednesday, that man pleaded not guilty to felony vandalism charges, writes The Hollywood Reporter, and said he "only wanted to bring about positive political change." "I don't personally think that there should be any charges brought against me," he told reporters outside the Los Angeles courthouse. "Because what I did, I believe, was a rightful and just act." Trump's star was previously pulverized by a different pickaxe-wielding individual in 2016. The alleged vandal,...

    The liberal actress and longtime Trump hater Rosie O’Donnell could do so much more with her high profile. She could ask for donations for the poor in our country, organize clothing drives for the needy, give shelter to our struggling American veterans — all with major help from her well-heeled Hollywood pals and her buds from Broadway shows in Manhattan, the ones with the supposedly deep pockets and the endless wells of sympathy for others. Instead, O’Donnell clearly isn’t focused on that right now. She’d rather ride a bus from New York City to Washington, D.C., sing songs with some...

    PHILADELPHIA - Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins resumed his protest against social injustice during the playing of the national anthem prior to Thursday night's preseason opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Defensive end Chris Long put his arm around Jenkins in a sign of support, as he did for much of last season. Defensive back De'Vante Bausby also raised a fist. Defensive end Michael Bennett appeared on the field during the playing of the anthem and walked behind his teammates, most of whom were lined up along the sideline.

    Iranian regime forces have been arresting large amounts of female protesters as demonstrations continue to flare up around the country. Religious leaders see protesting Iranian women as a primary threat to the regime as they are rebelling against male, religious abuse and control. A devastated man at the protest in Daneshjoo Park takes a video. He weeps and curses the government for taking the women. The security forces said we’ve taken her to protect you, reported Iran News Wire. Below a terrified group of women smuggled out a video of themselves inside an Iranian security forces vehicle, shouting out their...
  • So how did Jeff Greene do at the Trump protest?

    Democratic candidate for governor Jeff Greene fought megaphone duels with a street preacher, a Rastafarian and a Black Lives Matter activist trying to make his message heard in the raucous, muggy protest zone at the Trump rally at the state fairgrounds Tuesday. But Greene wasn't specific when asked for details on a promise he's made that many Democrats may find enticing: If he's the Democratic nominee for governor, he says, he'll fund Democratic candidates in five Republican-held state Senate races including one in Tampa. Wins in those districts could bring the party close to the Senate majority, or give them...

    CNN correspondent Jim Acosta discusses his question to press secretary Sarah Sanders, when she refused to say that the press was not the enemy of the American people. Acosta was so distressed that he walked out of Thursday's press briefing. Acosta came up with an idea to combat the 'CNN sucks' chants of Trump supporters: "I think maybe we should make some bumper stickers. Make some buttons, you know maybe we should go out on Pennsylvania Avenue like these folks who chant CNN sucks and fake news, maybe we should go out, all journalists should go out on Pennsylvania Avenue...

    WILKES-BARRE — Police took a 73-year-old Wilkes-Barre woman into custody during a protest against President Donald Trump outside Mohegan Sun Arena on Thursday. Andrea Glod was the only one among several hundred protestors who refused police commands to move off Highland Park Boulevard by the Interstate 81 exit ramp, minutes before Trump’s motorcade arrived. The roadway was blockaded and guarded by dozens of police officers, including state troopers on horseback, as most of the crowd moved the protest onto the side of the road. Glod stood her ground. “It started with a young state trooper who said, ‘You have to...
