    There were no visible demonstrations by NFL players during the national anthem before the season opener on Thursday night. All of the Atlanta Falcons and most of the Philadelphia Eagles stood throughout the anthem, including players who have previously demonstrated, such as Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins. Eagles defensive end Michael Bennett wandered around the bench throughout the anthem and sat down near the end, but he did not kneel. Most of the players reportedly had their hands over the chests throughout the anthem. Last month, several Eagles players, including Jenkins, did not take the field during the national anthem at...
  • Consensus: New Poll Shows No One Really Cares About Trump’s Alleged

    Everyone in the news media is obsessed with the Stormy Daniels-Donald Trump soap opera. The porn star alleges that she had a tryst with the future president in 2006. In 2011, she alleges that someone threatened her to keep quiet. She was paid $130,000 in hush money, along with a non-disclosure agreement, which she appears to have violated. The situation reached fever pitch when FBI agents raided the office and residence of Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, yesterday. He’s being investigated for bank fraud and FEC violations relating to the payments to Daniels. Is this a big deal?...

    Super Bowl 52 is just a few days away, and after NFL regular season TV ratings fell by nearly 10% this season on average, one of the biggest questions pundits and sports media have is: Will the Super Bowl ratings be good? If the results of a new survey from Seton Hall University are to be believed, the answer might be no. Seton Hall surveyed 706 Americans across the country, via landlines and cellphones, from Jan. 29 to Jan. 31. The first question asked people how closely they follow the NFL. Of those who said they follow it “very closely,”...

    It's amazing how one bump in the road which will be forgotten sooner than you think has resulted in breathless hyperbolic rhetoric from the lunatics on the left. Failure! Embarrassed! Humiliated! A deluge of memes. Tweeting celebs piling on. etc etc. They have lost all perspective. The GOP couldn't come to a consensus on repealing and replacing Obamacare. Ok, it's disappointing but we'll go back to the drawing board and figure something out...and then repeal and replace Obamacare. In the meantime here are the libs, beaten to a pulp across the nation.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Secretary of State Colin Powell is declining to renew the endorsement he gave Barack Obama four years ago, when he called Mr. Obama “a transformational figure.” ... Mr. Powell called presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney a viable candidate and said he’s “still listening” to Republican proposals. Mr. Powell, who served under President George W. Bush, also said, “I don’t want to throw my weight behind someone” at this point in the campaign.

    Rick Santorum built his presidential candidacy on the premise that he is very different than wealthy, establishment front-runner Mitt Romney, that he is someone who has faced the plights of the average American. Among the hardships Santorum claims to share is an underwater mortgage, the kind that's forcing millions from their homes. "The value of my house is a fraction of what it was when I bought it," the former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania recently told Michigan supporters. But the Republican presidential contender's housing situation is quite unlike the one so many other Americans actually face, according to experts and...

    NEW YORK -- The percentage of black players in the major leagues dropped again on Opening Day this year even as the sport again received a top overall grade for racial diversity. Baseball's grade for gender hiring declined slightly, according to the annual study released Thursday by Richard Lapchick's Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sports at the University of Central Florida. Baseball received an A for racial diversity in hiring, the same grade as last year, and a B-minus for gender, down from a B. Its overall grade remained a B-plus.

    Troubled Hollywood starlet Lindsay Lohan is planning to appear naked in an low-budget film in an effort to revive her flailing career, it has been claimed. The actress is said to have agreed to strip down for just £40,000 for the indie film Florence to prove herself as a "mature actress". The 21-year-old, who previously played a pole dancer in the box-office flop I Know Who Killed Me, has reportedly agreed to "full frontal" nudity in her role as a nymphomaniac waitress in the drama. An insider told The Sun: “Lindsay doesn't care she's getting paid peanuts. She wants to...

    NEW YORK - Q: What are carbon offsets? How do I choose among the organizations and companies that sell them? And is buying carbon offsets the best way for me to help the environment? A: Carbon offsets are a way for anyone who drives a car, turns on a light or takes a plane to "offset" their carbon dioxide emissions by investing in a green project aimed at reducing the CO2 in the atmosphere. Some of the investments offered by offset organizations: A wind farm in Nebraska, a sewage facility in Thailand and a biomass plant in Minnesota powered by...

    From its very start, the ballyhooed case of who leaked the name of CIA analyst Valerie Plame to columnist Robert Novak has been drenched in partisan politics and media hypocrisy. The more we learn, however, the more it also reveals about the internal dysfunction of the Bush Administration and the lack of loyalty among some of its most senior officials.

    Just a short while ago, USA Today did a feature article on the country band The Dixie Chicks. They became infamous in March of 2003 when their leader, Natalie Maines, stated in an overseas concert that she was embarrassed to be a native of Texas because of President Bush's decision to invade Iraq. Immediately radio stations boycotted their albums, former fans boycotted concerts, and they were dubbed as unpatriotic cheap-shot artists. The starship that had soared to the top of the country music charts abruptly crashed to earth. When Ms. Maines realized that she had stuck her foot into her...

    "Unfortunately, all too often "Islam" and "terrorism" are juxtaposed in news reports and editorials. A word search on news stories published in major newspapers over the past decade shows that reporters are hundred times more likely to associate Islam with terrorism or militancy than all other faiths combined. Such lopsided portrayal is indicative of deep-seated misunderstandings about Islam, and sometimes just plain prejudice. Surely all terrorists are not Muslim, neither are all Muslims terrorists."

    A few months after 9/11, President Bush authorized the National Security Agency (NSA) to eavesdrop on Americans and others in the US without having to obtain the court warrants normally required in these situations, according to government officials. The New York Times reports that as a result, the NSA has monitored the international phone calls and e-mails of "hundreds, perhaps thousands" of people living in the United States. Before Sept. 11, 2001, the NSA limited its spying in the US to foreign embassies and missions and obtained court orders for such investigations. Officials say the government still seeks warrants for...
