Army Ranger DESTROYS 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick Who Sat Out Nat’l Anthem and Cried Racism

This is Why I love the United States Military!

Published

on

49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick caused a huge controversy after choosing to sit down during the National Anthem on Friday night.

When Kaepernick was asked about why he did it, he responded:

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

Independent Journal Review decided to see what veterans think about Kaepernick’s comments. We talked to Dorian Majied, an Army Ranger veteran who served in Iraq.

He said:

“I understand Kaepernick’s intention, however I disagree with his means. His NBA counterparts protested the same ideas in a way that neither hurt the country, nor ignored the ideals that people of color have fought and died which; ideals represented by the symbolism of the American Flag and words of the National Anthem.As a member of a national organization, reaping the benefits of a country that apparently oppresses people who look like him, his argument is thin on a personal level.

Doing what Dwayne Wade and company did at a game opener to support BLM, or making a public verbal statement as Carmelo Anthony did, or even a written statement as Michael Jordan did are all more appropriate acts of protest.

He could write his congressman, he could petition, he could picket, he could join the service and actually fight for the rights he seems to think are not offered to him; his sitting through the National Anthem was a lazy lack of will and brain power.”

Majied continued:

“To refuse to stand for the National Anthem is his right as an American, and I support that right, however I do not agree with that action.There are a myriad of other ways to conduct social protest for people of color, that don’t, whether by intent or otherwise, ignore the American principles that have given rise to extreme integration within a single American generation.

My father was born without the right to vote and in one generation I’ve been blessed to lead amongst the world’s greatest fighting force.”

Then, he explained how Kaepernick is disrespecting the nation that gave him so much:

“To disrespect the country that has afforded him the opportunities and fortunes he acquired is only made more offensive by the fact that his life is the personification of the ideals I see in the American flag and National Anthem: a biracial child, raised by white parents, and who has accomplished much despite his “oppression.” In how many more nations around the world can a story like that come to fruition?He made valid points, I’m not ignoring that there are still issues with race in America. However, he is ignoring the positive ideals of America that every colored person who has ever served, fought–while some died–for, by refusing to stand. Proper action is exactly that, action, not the inaction of not standing because he couldn’t think of a better way to protest.”

Majied finished by saying, “Kaepernick was wrong in his delivery and protested the wrong symbols of America. The American flag and National Anthem represent the highest of American ideals, not the lowest ideals.”

BREAKING NEWS About America’s Most Popular Restaurant! You’ll NEVER Eat There Again – This is SICK!

Published

on

It’s common knowledge that when you put good in, you get good out. That’s true on many levels, but none so literal as with what we put in our bodies. We were designed to survive and thrive off of what the earth provides for us.  But the production of those life-giving substances has turned into such a finely-tuned machine that prioritizes profit and taste, that we’ve lost a lot of what was good for us along the way.

One of the biggest steps backward for the health of the western world was the introduction of “GMO foods”  or any food that is genetically modified in order to live even with poisons sprayed on them. The purpose of this is to keep the food growing when the plants are sprayed for bugs/weeds etc. Unfortunately, that means that things like Roundup are actually being put into our foods so that they’ll be immune to being sprayed with it. As you can imagine, that’s not great for your system.

McDonald’s Corporation is the largest dealer of GMO’s, according to Your News Wire, and according to recent reports, the golden arches have been seeing less green pass through them because of this information. The national awareness that GMO’s could be contributing to the bad health of this generation is finally affecting the fast food superstar’s bottom line. In fact, what is being served by the once beloved clown and his co-workers is hardly even being regarded as food anymore:

“McDonald’s recently launched a PR campaign called ‘Our Food, Your Questions’ to reassure customers that their Frankenfoods are safe for human consumption. Unfortunately for McDonald’s, their campaign backfired spectacularly.

While the company still denies they use ‘pink slime’ in their burgers, they were forced to admit using some highly questionable ‘ingredients’ that would be more at home in a science experiment than on the dinner plate of a growing child.

During the ‘Our Food, Your Questions’ campaign, McDonald’s admitted to using the chemical additive azodicarbonamide in their burger buns, which is the exact same substance found in yoga mats.

Naturally, the world’s leading Frankenfoods dealer insisted that adding rubber to food is quite safe. According to McDonald’s:

‘There are varied uses for azodicarbonamide, including in some non-food products, such as yoga mats. As a result, some people have suggested our food contains rubber or plastic, or that the ingredient is unsafe. Think of salt: the salt you use in your food at home is a variation of the salt you may use to de-ice your sidewalk. The same is true of ADA — it can be used in different ways.’

I guess that was supposed to make us feel better, but there really is a slight flaw in that logic.  Just because food products can be used in an industrial capacity, doesn’t mean that industrial products should be used in a food type capacity. You want to salt the front steps with Morton salt, fine, just don’t put a yoga mat in my rock salt grinder as one being okay doesn’t make the other okay.

These revelations are having far-reaching impacts on the take-home pay for the corroboration. AP reports that stores are closing nationwide, and profit margins are slimming down, unlike the waistlines of those who eat their food:

“According to an Associated Press review of the corporation’s regulatory filings, McDonald’s closed over 700 stores last year and suffered an 11 percent decrease in revenue and 30 percent drop in profit. For corporations the size of McDonald’s, operating on slim profit margins, falls in profit of 2 to 3 percent can have enormous ramifications. 30 percent? We are talking irreversible terminal decline, according to industry experts.”

But maybe you think that there’s to be some margin for error. Maybe the oddly shaped and pressed meat products should be a red flag, but we can stick with the pure, natural, one ingredient foods like french fries. We can all make french fries, it’s just potatoes, salt, and frying oil. Maybe that’s how you make french fries, but that’s not how Mickey D’s makes them.

French Fries are actually comprised of 19 shocking ingredients. The staple side dish is basically a laboratory experiment in creating an item that looks and tastes like a potato product but is actually a chemically engineered concoction of GMOs, trans fats, chemical stabilisers, preservatives, wheat, milk, and beef derivatives, as well as poisonous additives derived from petroleum and silicone.

Future generations will look back at McDonalds with horror. They will be astonished that the multinational corporation was allowed by the FDA to perform what is essentially a sick and twisted science experiment on the world’s population, damaging the health of millions of unsuspecting people in the process. McDonalds aim their advertising squarely at children and adolescents, trying to hook them on their chemical-laden addictive products while they are young and vulnerable – and all in the name of profit over all else.”

May we learn the error of our ways sooner rather than later and save our collective health while we still can. The honest truth is that you’d probably be better off to eat cane sugar out of the bag standing over the sink than to feel happy eating a Happy Meal. McDonald’s had its time, and that is now past; make the decision that is best for your health and drive past the drive-through and on to the farmer’s market, or even the meat market, or anywhere that doesn’t serve GMO’s and slime.

BREAKING NEWS: He Was Just Found DEAD On The Beach After Being Accused!

Published

on

Did false sexual accusations drive one politician to take his life? The past month has been riddled with sexual scandals, where the implications have been massive. Not only are acting careers of famous celebrities being destroyed overnight, but Roy Moore was defeated in the Alabama race after several women came crawling out of the woodwork at the prodding of evil billionaire George Soros. Even though there has yet to be any hard evidence against Moore, and his main accuser, ex-waitress Beverly Young Nelson was proven a liar, liberals still used the story to push the narrative that Moore was a “sexual predator.” Now one politician has just shot himself in the head after being accused of very similar allegations against him.

Rep. Dan Johnson

Just days after being accused of sexual assault, Republican preacher and state Rep. Dan Johnson shot himself on a bridge, where his body turned up on a riverbank near the bridge and the gun was recovered the scene. Johnson had taken to social media to post about the accusations against him, where he claimed they were false. Conservative Fighters reported:

On Monday, the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting published an account from a woman claiming that Johnson sexually assaulted her in the early morning hours of Jan. 1, 2013.

The woman said she attended a party at his home on the night of the incident. She reportedly fell asleep on a sofa and woke up to Johnson kneeling over her, before she claimed he assaulted her. The woman said she reported the incident but Louisville police closed the case without charges.

A state representative in Kentucky shot and killed himself Wednesday evening, officials said — just days after a report emerged in which a woman accused him of sexual assault.

Earlier Wednesday evening, WDRB said Johnson took to Facebook to post about the accusations leveled against him, claiming they were “false” and “only GOD knows the truth.”

Just before 5 pm on Wednesday, Johnson posted the following:

The accusations from NPR are false GOD and only GOD knows the truth, nothing is the way they make it out to be. AMERICA will not survive this type of judge and jury fake news . Conservatives take a stand. I LOVE GOD and I LOVE MY WIFE, who is the best WIFE in the world,My Love Forever ! My Mom and Dad my FAMILY and all five of my kids and Nine grandchildren two in tummies and many more to come each of you or a total gift from GOD stay strong, REBECCA needs YOU . 9-11-2001 NYC/WTC, PTSD 24/7 16 years is a sickness that will take my life, I cannot handle it any longer. IT Has Won This Life . BUT HEAVEN IS MY HOME. “PLEASE LISTEN CLOSELY, Only Three things I ask of you to do,if you love me is (1)blame no person,Satan is the accuser, so blame the Devil himself. (2) Forgive and Love everyone especially yourself .(3)most importantly LOVE GOD. P.S. I LOVE MY FRIENDS YOU ARE FAMILY ! GOD LOVES ALL PEOPLE NO MATTER WHAT !

On Monday, the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting published an account from a woman claiming that Johnson sexually assaulted her in the early morning hours of Jan. 1, 2013.

The woman said she attended a party at his home on the night of the incident. She reportedly fell asleep on a sofa and woke up to Johnson kneeling over her, before she claimed he assaulted her. The woman said she reported the incident but Louisville police closed the case without charges.

In light of all these accusations against Republicans lately, liberals are outrageously using the narrative as a way to bully President Trump into resigning from office after several women in recent days are now coming forward. Pennlive.com reported:

The small group of U.S. senators publicly calling for President Donald Trump to resign in the wake of numerous sexual assault accusationsnow includes Sen. Bob Casey (D-Pa.).

Casey joined senators Cory Booker (D-NJ), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI), Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Ron Wyden (D-OR) in saying Trump should resign amid numerous allegations of misconduct spanning several decades.

This ongoing witch hunt against the President is absolutely ridiculous. But what really happened to Rep. Dan Johnson? Were these false allegations a tactic to get him to resign, but realizing how proving his innocence would be an uphill battle, he decided to take the easy way out and end his life? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

BREAKING NEWS About Adored Elderly Actress Betty White – So Sad!

Published

on

Betty White seems to have outlasted the test of time in Hollywood and at 95-years-old is still a viable and beloved star in Tinsel Town. It seems that her humor is the real secret to a happy and successful life, as it served her well. While she’s never been the most vocal about politics, she’s been wise enough to keep her presidential preferences to herself throughout the years, as a person in her public position. White has always cut to the chase, making her loved and respected among many. Now, we have some breaking news about this bright star, who at the ripe age of 95 surprised us all.

Perhaps Betty White’s secret to success that other stars should learn from was to be opinionated and witty without being divisive. She certainly mastered that skill throughout her career but recently, something really disturbing has changed. We saw this in full effect when she was recently face-to-face with news anchor Katie Couric who pulled her typical trick of trying to get the start to trash President Trump. Couric quickly realized she wasn’t talking to the typical famous millennial idiot when White came back with an unexpected response to her bait, shocking viewers who thought they knew her. This feisty elderly actress answered with a really sad response to Couric’s nasty, divisive questioning to set her up. What’s even sadder, is what and how the accomplished journalist said to the actress.

Opposing Views reports:

On her 95th birthday, Betty White spoke to Yahoo News’ Katie Couric. In the interview, the pair covered a wide variety of topics. When asked about the current state of our country, White’s comments surprised many (video below).

When the conversation turned to politics, it seemed as though Couric may have been looking for White’s thoughts on President Trump. However, White stayed away from commenting specifically on the new president, and instead offered a positive take on things.

“The world is in a very interesting place right now,” Couric said. “What do you think about the state of our country and how divided it seems to be?”

White responded: “It’s very divided, and we’re not in the best place we’ve ever been. I think that’s the time to buckle down and really work positively as much as you can instead of just saying, ‘This is terrible. He’s terrible.'”

She continued, “Just think, ‘Alright, there’s nothing I can do about that right now but I can do the best in my little circle.’ So if I do that, maybe you’ll do your best and we’ll get through this.”

White says she believes people should start thinking more positively because negativity leads to a “toxic” environment.

“So many people think negatively it’s like, ‘oh, you know what I hate?’ Instead of ‘alright, I’ll get through this,'” the 95-year-old said. “Then all of a sudden you start lifting up a little bit, but if you start with ‘you know what I hate,’ you’re gonna go right down the tubes.”

She added, “You’ve gotta get through it. And you can’t change it, so let’s just one foot in front of another and get through it.”

After an insanely long run on the much-loved sitcom Golden Girls and all these years she’s outlived her costars since the White reduced herself to the level of an ignorant Tinsel Town millennial. It didn’t need to be like that since for her entire career she’s always maintained a non-partial attitude towards every presidency before Trump’s. Now, she’s proven that politics will be mixed in the entertainment industry in an unfortunate way that’s here to stay. What’s worse, is that these stars don’t even seem to care that it’s killing their industry. They will only continue to complain and blame Trump for the demise and refuse to accept that nobody wants politics and anti-Trump rhetoric mixed into their entertainment.

Considering that White is at a place late in her life that she doesn’t care who thinks what of her and whether they agree with her, she’s got nothing to lose. The same doesn’t go for young stars who are destroying their industry one anti-Trump comment at a time, and don’t realize it or care. The proof is in the statistics below and they can only blame themselves.

“People just haven’t been going to the movies this summer—at least, that’s what the numbers are telling us. According to comScore (via THR), both box office revenue and ticket sales declined this summer, hitting record lows,” Paste Magazine reports. “Revenue is down nearly 16 percent this year, lower than the 14.6 decline in 2014. As the summer of 2017 wraps up, it will end up as the first summer since 2006 to not make $4 billion in the box office. Additionally, ticket sales have reached a 25-year low.”

It’s time for stars to stop abusing their massive platforms for trashing the president and pushing an agenda. White, at her age, should realize that and set a better example for young stars. Instead, she followed their lead and jumped on that bandwagon that’s set to crash and burn their industry to the ground.
