    Major wake-up call for the NFL, but not if the league remains beholden to millionaire players instead of the loyal fans who support the league A new NFL season started on Thursday night, and there were more misguided National Anthem protests. Sadly, several players used the opportunity to express their grievances against their country, instead of respecting a great and unifying symbol of the United States of America. Players who should have been expressing their deep gratitude and support for their country, once again, showed disrespect. President Trump responded by expressing his displeasure, tweeting, “The NFL players are at it...
  • Rosie O'Donnell, the Democrat, the Trump Hater,...is Dumb, Dumber and Dumbest.

    Rosie O'Donnell the "supreme" POTUS, Donald J. Trump hater/witch just ain't the sharpest knife in the drawer. But...then the singers and entertainers from "Broadway" ain't too sharp either. Ah...yes, the grand gathering outside the "White House" to protest and hate POTUS, Donald J. Trump had some flaws...no one knew that the POTUS, Trump would not be there. The entire country was told by the very media that hates Trump, that he (Trump) was vacationing at his golf course in New Jersey. Yes, O'Donnell and her chorus sang their hateful, hearts out for thirty minutes hoping to either wake up or...

    Police in Berkeley, California, released names and headshots of individuals arrested during a Sunday protest, and Antifa and its allies are not pleased. The Berkeley Police Department published the information for 15 out of 20 individuals it arrested on its Twitter feed to much criticism from left-wing activists, reported The Guardian. Berkeley police’s tweets included arrested individuals’ names, ages, city of residence, as well as the charge on which they were arrested.

On Sunday, (Rouhani's) cabinet announced it was easing foreign exchange rules, undoing a disastrous attempt to fix the value of the rial in April... that saw it lose more than half its value.

    CNN’s Jim Acosta is still having a temper tantrum about being told his network sucks by Trump supporters in Florida this week. CNN spends 24 hours a day attacking Trump and his supporters but Jim can’t handle it when anyone pushes back. Now he’s saying he thinks journalists should hold a protest in front of the White House. The Washington Free Beacon reports:Acosta: Journalists Should Chant ‘We’re Not the Enemy of the People’ in Front of the White HouseCNN correspondent Jim Acosta went on a lengthy rant against White House attacks on the media on Thursday, suggesting he and his...

    An independent pollster in Russia has found that Russian citizens are much more likely to get out on the streets and protest government policies due to the current pension reform process that is underway. It seems this legislation has brought to the forefront the dissatisfaction Russians feel over declining economic conditions.

    The anniversary of the August 12, 2017 Charlottesville protest is coming up. It was on this day, so the story goes, that the left confronted the right over the right’s support for a statue of civil war general Robert E. Lee and a woman was killed by a white nationalist driving his car into a crowd of Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and other protestors. Because applications by “Unite the Right” for a return to Charlottesville were turned down, the protest this year is scheduled for Lafayette Park, across the street from the White House in Washington. The ANSWER coalition, representing...

    A class action filed by Donald Trump supporters who say they were injured after San Jose police in 2016 steered them into a mob of protesters will continue after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit on Friday doused police officers’ arguments seeking qualified immunity.A three-judge panel unanimously affirmed U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh of the Northern District of California’s 2017 ruling denying the city of San Jose’s efforts to dismiss the suit against seven police officers. The plaintiffs say the officers channeled them into a violent crowd on June 2, 2016, as they exited a rally for...

    Tens of thousands of Israeli protesters have rallied in Tel Aviv against a law denying surrogacy to gay couples and single fathers. Demonstrators held their gathering in the central Rabin Square, and at one point briefly blocked a major motorway. At least one person was arrested. Israel's parliament on Wednesday allowed surrogacy for single women and women unable to bear children. Previously, only heterosexual married couples were granted the same rights. The legislation also envisaged state funding for surrogacy. "We came here today (Sunday) to say to the government 'No more'," demonstrator Oz Dani in Rabin Square was quoted as...

    Thanks to the exaggerated outrage of the mainstream media and the attention-seeking protests of London leftists, a narrative seems to have set in that the vast majority of British people oppose this week’s visit of President Trump. As a Brit myself, however, I am delighted to confirm this lazy slur could not be further from the truth.In reality, the vast majority of British conservatives (and a good chunk of floating voters too) are coming to admire Trump. His unmistakable approach to politics – straight-talking, honest and completely fearless – is increasingly viewed with envy by British voters tired of backsliding...

    **SNIP** While politicians consider whether or not they’d support a nominee who opposes the 1973 decision that legalized abortion, some women have a strategy to drum up support for a woman’s right to choose: the #Lysistrata2018 movement. Named after Aristophanes’s ancient Greek comedy Lysistrata, in which women refuse to sleep with their warring husbands until they agree to a truce, the movement is the brainchild of author and political journalist Jennifer Wright. In a tweet posted on Monday, Wright suggested that single women stop dating and having sex with men expressing anti-abortion views. Women could indicate their stance by adding...

    The rally began with drums and a reminder that the story of most Americans began somewhere else. A representative of the Piscataway Indian Nation addressed a crowd of thousands assembled in Lafayette Square on Saturday in Spanish, then English. Sebastian Medina-Tayac burned tobacco, a Native American prayer tradition, said a prayer and then sang an indigenous-language song from Bolivia that means, “take courage.” “We don’t believe in borders. We don’t believe in walls,” Medina-Tayac said. The rally ended with a march past the White House and the Trump International Hotel and on to the Department of Justice, where protesters affixed...

    I'm not surprised that mobs shriek at Trump administration officials in restaurants and that Maxine Waters wants more of that. I've watched this happen at American colleges. One example: Heather Mac Donald is a Manhattan Institute scholar who wrote the book "The War on Cops." She argues that Americans are less safe today because police, for fear of being called racist, back off. I sometimes disagree with Mac Donald, but she is a thoughtful researcher whose ideas deserve to be heard. At UCLA, when she was allowed to give her "Blue Lives Matter" speech, many in the audience applauded. But...

    “What the regime feared most is happening,” Alinejad tells me. “Tehran had stayed calm as nationwide protests at the beginning of the year engulfed 80 cities. Now an impromptu protest in Tehran by merchants against economic mismanagement has turned into a massive anti-regime event, with chants of death to dictator and death to Palestine.”
