    The 49ers are in the belly of the beast. Smack in the world of spin and obstruction, of base-pandering and attention-deflecting. Washington politics came to the 49ers last Sunday, with the vice president of the United States using their game in Indianapolis as a vehicle to further the divisive issue of players, largely African American, kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial injustice.

    RUSH: Well! I have just stumbled across something that’s a little interesting to me here. That combines a couple of issues. That otherwise would not be related. Happy to have you here, my friends. It’s Rush Limbaugh and the most listened to radio talk show in America, the EIB Network, Limbaugh Institute for Advanced Conservative Studies, Anti-Leftist Studies, and Anti-Media Studies. No graduates, no degrees. The learning never ends. It’s 800-282-2882 if you want to be on the program. Okay. I wasn’t gonna mention this until we had finished or completed our discussion of the event in Las Vegas. However,...
  • ESPN 'will not carry' national anthem before Redskins-Chiefs on 'Monday Night Football'

    Sporting News ^ | 10/1 | Michael McCarthy
    ESPN will pass on showing live player protests during Week 4 of the NFL season. The Disney-owned network told Sporting News it won't air the playing of the national anthem before Redskins vs. Chiefs on "Monday Night Football." The NFL's TV partners normally do not show players before the unfurling of the American flag and singing/playing of the national anthem, except before the Super Bowl and other select games. But given viewer interest around players staging demonstrations last week, ESPN, Fox Sports, NBC Sports, CBS Sports, NFL Network and DirecTV all provided live anthem coverage during Week 3. SNIP NBC...
  • Did Raiders Throw NFL Game Over Anthem?

    YouTube description: Driving to a follow up visit I was listening to the Armstrong and Getty Show (The Morning Answer sucks!) and they broke some news that will surely be investigated to be substantiated if true. Due to the quarterback standing during the anthem and the all black offensive line kneeling, there could be some ideological as well as racial animus going on. I included Bill O'Reilly's thoughts as well.

    On a day full of criticisms from Donald Trump, political protests, linked arms, players taking a knee or not coming on the field during the National Anthem and renewed pleas for unity from the league NBC and the NFL took a hit last night on Sunday Night Football. In metered market numbers, the primetime match-up between the 27-10 winning Washington Redskins and the Oakland Raiders snared an 11.6/20. The worst SNF has performed this season so far, that’s an 8% dip from the early numbers of last week’s Atlanta Falcon’s 34-23 win over the Green Bay Packers. Gaining cheers and...

    On Friday night President Trump lashed out at NFL players protesting the national anthem on Friday while at a campaign rally for Senator Luther Strange (R-AL). On Sunday over two hundred NFL players and staff knelt down in protest during the national anthem. Americans reacted to the controversy by boycotting the league. Early numbers show weekly NFL ratings may be down by 10% due to the stunt.

    The events in Charlottesville ignited a fierce national debate on the merits of symbols commemorating the Confederacy and its leaders. But statues of Robert E. Lee and flags modeled after that of the Confederacy aren't America's only reminders of its racist past. The Washington Redskins' namesake has its origins in a racial slur used by pioneers of the American West to describe Native Americans. Predictably, this ugly reality is a source of seemingly constant controversy, and the debate is brought back to the forefront nearly every time any entity of note takes a stand against it. The most notable example...

    Washington, DC – Seven Planned Parenthood facilities, six of which conducted medication abortions, are set to permanently close today in three states. Planned Parenthood officials noted that the closures were primarily an attempt to remain solvent amid fears that Medicaid reimbursements would be halted by Congress. “It isn’t very often we see seven Planned Parenthood facilities close in one day. This may have set some kind of record. It is great news for women and their babies who will no longer be preyed upon for profit by Planned Parenthood in these communities,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “Many...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department is giving up the legal fight over the name of the Washington Redskins. In a letter to a federal appeals court, the department said last week's Supreme Court decision in Matal v. Tam in favor of an Asian-American band calling itself the Slants means the NFL team will prevail in a legal battle to cancel the team's trademarks because the name is disparaging to Native Americans.

    Justice Department Dropping “Redskins” Fight: Trump Administration Putting An End To “PC” America As originally reported by the AP, the Supreme Court’s decision in Matal v. Tam was found in favor of the Asian-American band “the Slants”. The case of Matal v. Tam and the ongoing battle against the “RedSkins” team name were closely tied. The Redskins lawsuit was pending as “the Slants” lawsuit continued; had this case favored in the opposite direction, it would have leveled a major blow to free speech in America. This was never just about the name of a band, or the name of a...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court on Monday struck down part of a law that bans offensive trademarks in a ruling that is expected to help the Washington Redskins in their legal fight over the team name. The justices ruled that the 71-year-old trademark law barring disparaging terms infringes free speech rights. The ruling is a victory for the Asian-American rock band called the Slants, but the case was closely watched for the impact it would have on the separate dispute involving the Washington football team. Slants founder Simon Tam tried to trademark the band name in 2011, but the...

    Trump should return the Washington Redskins’ trademark protection that Obama took away In June 2014, the Obama administration revoked trademark protection for the Washington Redskins’ name because some people thought it was offensive. This set a horrible precedent. Just about every R-rated movie includes content that someone would consider offensive, whether that content be violence, sex, profanity, etc. The same can be said for the content of many books, the lyrics of many songs, the content of many paintings, etc. If any copyright, patent, trademark, etc., can be revoked because someone finds it offensive, then I can’t even begin to...

    This “march toward justice” is a march toward insanity, a march toward devastation. The efforts to erase history, remove monuments, change names and mascots must stop immediately. If not, our country will disintegrate before our very eyes In our toxic age of political correctness, nothing is immune from liberal political attacks, even the beautiful, majestic and endangered tigers. It seems obvious that tigers should be supported since their numbers are dwindling the in the wild and their natural habitats are constantly shrinking. Most people probably think it is innocent for Louisiana State University (LSU) to feature tigers as their mascot...
  • Kirk Cousins chases down Pro Bowl pick: 'I want to win'

    Even in a meaningless Pro Bowl game, the competitive spirit of some players can't be squashed. Kirk Cousins threw a late interception off the hands of tight end Jimmy Graham, as the NFC was driving for a potential game-tying score. Instead of standing and watching the play, the free-agent-to-be quarterback hustled down the field to make the strip tackle on corner Aqib Talib. Cousins had a simple answer when asked why he'd hustle to make that play in an exhibition. "It's because I want to win, man," he told ESPN after the game.

    A 15-yard penalty apparently wasn't enough punishment for Josh Norman's bow-and-arrow celebration, so the NFL decided to fine the Washington Redskins star cornerback $10,000 on Wednesday. Norman, who was fined last week for his hit on Giants wideout Sterling Shepard, said he will appeal his latest punishment, which was doled out after he celebrated his fourth-quarter interception in Sunday's win over the Browns.

    The latest story about an NFL player and a flag began Tuesday morning just after 11, in the great hall of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Frances Perkins building. All 45 candidates for naturalization held miniature American flags as they sat in plastic chairs and listened to government officials deliver paeans to the power of immigration. Those included the first two candidates in the front row, perhaps the smallest and the biggest of the 45. There was tiny Dahlia Lyons, a native of the Philippines and the only military spouse in the ceremony. And next to her was the 6-foot-5...
