    Earlier Today Ron DeSantis, Governor of Florida was interviewed by Clay Travis from Outkick Sports....The interview is about 23 minutes long.... I live in Florida and like the guy.... He's catching hell from the MSM for being a Trump Supporter and Governor of a key election state... I think it's refreshing to hear from a politician who is making decisions based on FACTS and not the near hysteria of many in the public.....

    American Greatness ^ | August 5, 2020 | Deion A. Kathawa
    While all the players ringed center ice, suddenly the words ďEND RACISMĒ were emblazoned on the jumbotron. Ringing the arena on smaller screens was #WeSkateForBlackLives. It was just as Orwellian as it sounds. In what sense do professional hockey players ďskate for black livesĒ? How does hockey, whether played well or poorly (or at all), ďend racismĒ or bring about ďbetter daysĒ? Does the act of playing hockey ďfixĒ racism? Obviously itís all nonsense. This was little more than ritualistic, saccharine, impotent (and very cheap) virtue-signaling by the NHL, done in the desperate hope that the antiracist mob might devour...
  • SICKOS! BLM Cheers ACL Injury Of NBA Player from Orlando Magic Who Refused To Kneel During The Playing of Our National Anthem

    Gateway Pundit ^ | 08/03/2020 | Jacob Engels
    Orlando Magic star Jonathan Issac became the first NBA player to refuse to wear a Black Lives Matter t-shirt and kneel during the national anthem late last week. Issac, who has supported the MAGA movement in the past and is a happily married devout Christian, cited his faith in Jesus Christ and his opposition to the demands of the BLM mob in justifying his decision.As a result, his jersey sales have skyrocketed to #2, only trailing China-owned Lebron James. Sadly, as happens often in sports, Issac tore his ACL towards the end of the game and had to be...
  • This is the message I sent the NHL requesting to cancel my paid subscription. I don't live within my favorite team's market so that subscription was my only way to watch games.

    I wish to cancel my subscription. I have been a hockey fan since I watched my first game in 1986 and I'm sad to leave. But America is not "systemically" or "systematically"(sic) racist. I will not pay to be lectured to about how my country is rotten to the core. I've read with pride how much NHL teams and individual players do to promote equality and diversity in hockey through the "hockey is for everyone" programs and their work in the local communities, for example the Capitals' tireless work with the Fort Dupont program. The NHL has highlighted the cases...
  • With Blazing Hatred in their eyes, Every NBA Player in First Basketball Game of 2020 Season Kneels in Contempt While American National Anthem Played

    ďThat was beautifully done. Done in unity. Nice to see,Ē former Orlando Magic star Shaquille OíNeal said on TNT. It is time to not only boycott basketball, but to turn off and stop watching every professional sporting event that is broadcast across America. Look at the hatred in the faces of these privileged, rich Liberals who have nothing but hatred and contempt for the country that made them wealthy bouncing a ball. They want real change? I say America turns them off starting immediately, and letís see them have to get real jobs and actually have to work for a...

Once elites became pampered and arrogant, they feel exempt from their ancestorsí respect for moral and spiritual laws like thrift, moderation and transcendence.</p>

    Former NFL coach Mike Ditka had a lot to say about the NFL players who plan to take a knee during the national anthem. He simply doesnít care for it and he suggests anyone whoís taking a knee for the national anthem may as well get out of the country. But donít listen to me. Take it from the man himself as quoted by TMZ: ďIf you canít respect our national anthem, get the hell out of the country. Thatís the way I feel.

    After wearing his face mask to throw out the ceremonial first pitch of the 2020 baseball season at the game between the New York Yankees and the Washington Nationals, coronavirus guru Dr. Anthony Fauci returned to his seat in the stands between two of his friends. Despite thousands of empty seats, these three spectators sat adjacent to each other. While the other two wore their masks, Fauci was photographed with his mask under his chinóa style popularized by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) and former Vice-President Joe Biden (D). Fauci's actions contradict what he has insisted are necessary if broader...

    The Wisconsin athletic department is projected to lose $100 million in revenue if the 2020 college football season is not played amid the COVID-19 pandemic, per athletic director Barry Alvarez in a letter published on (h/t ESPN's Mark Schlabach). That $100 million figure is in addition to the $12 million that the department has already lost, per Alvarez, who laid out what the department has done to cut costs. "To this point, we have taken many steps over the past few months to minimize the impact of a cancelled winter postseason and spring season. We have instituted pay decreases...

    (AP photo)PITTSBURGH (AP) ó The Cleveland Indians took three separate buses to PNC Park before Saturdayís exhibition against the Pittsburgh Pirates, a move designed to maintain proper social distancing while also trying to pull off a Major League Baseball season during the COVID-19 pandemic. The club, however, broke with the protocol for a few brief moments during the national anthem. While a prerecorded version of ďThe Star-Spangled BannerĒ blared over the speakers at the spectator-free ballpark, the Indians stood side-by-side, their right hand over their heart, their left hand on their teammateís right shoulder. It was intentional. It was peaceful....
