Browns Just Got Devastating News From Ohio Supreme Court Justice After Players Continued To Protest

Judge just knocked these players Flat out!

Published

on

When even Democrats start speaking out against a so-called protest you know you’re on the losing side.

Justice Bill O’Neill of the Ohio State Supreme Court posted a heated Facebook status Tuesday in response to the failed unemployed 49er’s quarterback Colin Kaepernick and the 12 Cleveland Browns players who took it upon themselves to join Kaepernick by protesting the national anthem during an August preseason game.

Judge O’neil’s post, which has since been taken down, stated that we will not pay to witness the disrespect of the American flag. And he added that you have freedom of speech but I also have the freedom of not paying $75 to listen to you. And if freedom of speech is so clear here, why not burn the flag on the 50-yard line.

He later went on to write, “Congratulations Cleveland Browns on your win. Unfortunately, my season ended last night. I will NEVER attend a sporting event where the draft dodging millionaire athletes disrespect the veterans who earned them the right to be on that field. Shame on you all. William O’Neill, LTC, US Army, Retired. Vietnam veteran; son of a World II veteran; proud father of an Iraq veteran.” Good for him!

The New York Times Reports:

Maybe Colin Kaepernick Is Just Not That Good

Whether or not Colin Kaepernick plays another down in the N.F.L., I’m going to say that he can achieve more off a football field than he — or anyone else in the sport — can achieve on one.

Football, in the larger scheme of things, is not that important. Kaepernick, meanwhile, has a message about crucial aspects of our frayed but hopefully repairable nation that will continue to grow. If he has the devotion to work for change, he could outclass Tom Brady, or any player you might name, as someone who did something that truly matters for future generations.

But I thought it might be useful to at least consider something. The conventional wisdom is that Kaepernick, who opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers after last season and has yet to be signed by another team, does not have an N.F.L. job on account of his politics. In protest against racism and police brutality, he won’t stand for the national anthem, and he’s increasingly outspoken on social issues. Earlier this summer in a tweet he likened the police to members of the fugitive slave patrol. N.F.L. owners, the thinking goes, must be racists who don’t like his politics — or cynical pragmatists who don’t like that their racist fans don’t like his politics.

What seems to me more problematic than Kaepernick’s not having a job is the general unwillingness to consider that this situation might be justified on the merits, given Kaepernick’s current attributes, or lack thereof, as a quarterback, rather than assuming, as part of a kneejerk gospel of victimhood, that persecution must be the cause.

It’s not hard to make a statistical case for why Kaepernick is not playing now. He threw for a mere 187 yards a game last season, which was good enough for 30th (in a league of 32 teams). For his career, he has completed fewer than 60 percent of his passes. Last season, 24 passers completed more than 60 percent. Kaepernick, at 59.2 percent, was ranked 26th. If you’re below 60 percent, you’re a fringe guy.

More damning, Kaepernick was not asked to make difficult throws; he’s not a Matt Ryan-type quarterback, slinging the ball far down the field on deep crosses or challenging out routes. In the current iteration of the N.F.L., offense rules the day, with quarterbacks tasked to put up crooked numbers on the scoreboard. Kaepernick’s job was to be a game manager, making the easiest, high-percentage throws. And he still struggled. What are you supposed to do with a guy like this? What can he do for you? Can he help you win?

If Kaepernick deserves a spot in the league, it’s only as a backup quarterback. And he will eventually get a job as one, I bet, once quarterbacks start getting hurt. But the fact that he doesn’t have a job right now isn’t shocking, and it doesn’t have to be because N.F.L. owners are racists who are blackballing him.

The older I get, the less I care about football, but I do care about merit, and things being seen for what they are. “Life is,” as Dostoyevsky wrote, and it is our job to figure out what the “is” is. I believe that’s one of the core responsibilities of being human.

We don’t do this enough anymore. We don’t ask the tough questions. We seek to align ourselves with what I think of as the “control voice” — whatever piped-in monotone is dictating a given narrative at the moment. It’s easy to feel good about yourself when you’re patting yourself on the back for your inability to never fail to take the moral high ground, which everyone who agrees with you reinforces and enables, one Facebook “like” at a time. But there is nothing real about that.

It doesn’t matter that Kaepernick doesn’t have a job; it matters that so few people even wonder if there might be a non-disgraceful explanation. We have become the anti-meritocracy. We resent those who outperform us, outwork us, outproduce us. And the person who has been perceived to have been slighted? He is whom we now adore.

I’d like to see Kaepernick get a job, because I find him interesting, and I’d like to see if he can solve the flaws in his game as he nears 30. But I’d like even more to see all of us challenge ourselves more, in ways that are more important to the world, and to ourselves, than whether or not someone gets a job taking an ill-advised sack, or throwing the ball out of bounds so he can live to play another down.

The writer is correct, he really isn’t good at all. 

The fact that NFL viewership is falling fast because of this garbage gives us hope that people really do care, People are pushing back against these spoiled rich ball throwers. The only way this asinine so-called protests will end for good is when the NFL gathers enough nerves to say “enough” and starts hitting these thugs where it hurts, their bank accounts. “You don’t stand, you don’t get paid.” It’s simple, if they don’t like it, they can go play ball in Iran where they hate the US as much as these spoiled millionaires do. Just like the NFL doesn’t let its employees wear, or display, unapproved logos during games, they can tell these rich spoiled ingrates to stand the hell up for our national anthem and stop disrespecting our great nation and everything she, and us, stand for and hold dear.

Please share if you agree the NFL needs to be boycotted until they put an end to this disrespect of our flag….

BREAKING!!! The MEMO IS BEING RELEASED! Here’s When You Can Expect To See It!!!

GRAB THE POPCORN!!

Published

on

For the past several days #ReleaseTheMemo has been trending on social media as conservatives across the country are demanding the release of the newly discovered damaging report. Over the weekend that traction only gained further steam as more people began to echo this phrase causing the Deep State to tremble in their treasonous boots. In the past, the left may have been able to sweep this memo under the rug, but that changed after what was released today. Another stunning report surfaced earlier today that shows that text messages between disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page’s went missing right around the time that Robert Muller was appointed to oversee the Russian Collusion investigation.

With this new information brought to light the memo has been pushed further into the spotlight, and now we have time when it is expected to be released, and it is sooner then you think.

Americans across the country have been eagerly awaiting the release of the anticipated memo that according to all that have seen it say it is worse then they could have ever imagined. The memo details the FISA surveillance abuses that were conducted under the Barack Obama administration, and how they used these secret courts to spy on a presidential candidate and use lies to make that happen.

Early on Monday morning, Congressman Dave Joyce appeared on Fox & Friends where he stated that he had seen the memo and its contents were “deeply disturbing.” Joyce was asked in the interview if the contents of the memo would be cause for termination of anyone involved in this scandal, which prompted Joyce to respond with, “termination would be the least of these people’s worries,”

Then when Joyce was asked if people would go to jail, he responded with, “They should.”

Now, how bad is this memo?

Joyce added, “Every American…would be surprised how bad it is.”

According to Joyce, the memo has been making its rounds through Congress for a bit now, and the contents enclosed in this memo has stunned almost every member of Congress who has read it.

Now, many of us are wondering why would the release of this damaging memo take that long since we have the right to know what is going on behind the closed doors in our government. Well, to give more answers on why we may have this delay of two to three weeks here is more from Washington Examiner.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte and House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy met with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes over the weekend to discuss next steps for the memo that details alleged abuses by the Intelligence Committee.

According to a committee source, no final decision was made on making it public because the three want to give lawmakers “who haven’t read it yet a chance to do so and weigh in.”

If a decision is made for a public release, the timeframe would probably be two to three weeks, the source told the Washington Examiner.

The four-page report, which was made available to the entire House on Thursday and has since been viewed by at least 180 members as of Sunday, is said to outline misuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act by the Obama administration.

Meanwhile, the FBI has yet to see the memo.

“The FBI has requested to receive a copy of the memo in order to evaluate the information and take appropriate steps if necessary. To date, the request has been declined,” FBI spokesman Andrew Ames told the Washington Examiner.

Unnamed individuals who spoke with the Washington Post said the memo contains assertions that seek to discredit Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that hired former British spy Christopher Steele to author the largely unverified “Trump dossier.”

The document reportedly says the FBI included false claims from Steele about Trump associates’ ties to Russia in an approved application to spy on campaign adviser Carter Page.

While everyone is waiting on the contents of this memo, some people have taken to Twitter to give their thoughts on how the note should be released, and I must say some of them are great ideas.

This memo could be the game changer we have all been waiting for over the last year.

It is about time that the American people know just how destructive Barack Obama and his minions were and how they were the ones obstructing justice in our country. Obama, Hillary Clinton, and the rest of those involved in this shocking abuse of power deserve to answer for their crimes once and for all and maybe now we will be able to see that happen.

BREAKING!! TRUMP’S DOING IT ON MARCH 5th!!! DREAMERS ARE DONE!

Published

on

There has been a tremendous amount of concern regarding the government shutdown and what brought it about. Primarily, it was DACA, Dreamers, and the issue of illegal immigration. Democrats shut down the government because DACA kids weren’t included in the budget. Which has everyone wondering what’s going to happen now that the budget has been extended for a month on the promise that DACA will be taken care of.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said during a White House press briefing that it is possible starting March 5th that Dreamers could start getting deported. This is if Democrats don’t comply with the demands of President Trump regarding chain migration. Sanders said,

We haven’t determined that. We are hopeful we don’t have to do that and we don’t have to get there. We would like Democrats to get serious about solving problems.”

Now Congress has six weeks until the continuing resolution before the budget runs out. Only six weeks to figure out United States immigration policy and deal with the 690,000 DACA kids currently in this country. If they weren’t able to figure this out in October or the last four times they passed a continuing resolution what is going to make them figure it out in less than a month?

When asked about the status of Dreamers and the message the administration is sending to them in light of everything that is going on Sanders replied,

I think they should storm capitol hill and protest there because that is the place that has held up this discussion. Democrats are the one who shut this discussion down by forcing a government shutdown, by being unwilling to fund the government. We lost four days over this process of the conversation that should have been focused on immigration reform, fighting over this CR. If they had been part of the solution instead of part of the problem, I think we would already be further down the road in our negotiation on this package.”

The Daily Mail reported,

Sanders said Monday that Democrats in the Capitol ‘held up’ discussion about DACA, which gives at least 700,000 people a guarantee they won’t be deported unless they commit crimes. ‘Democrats are the one that shut this discussion down by forcing a shutdown, by being unwilling to fund the government,’ she insisted. Sanders framed DACA recipients’ worries as products of a ‘failure to actually address the issue’ on Capitol Hill.

‘They’re the ones that actually pass and make those laws,’ she said of Congress.
‘And the president gave a six-month timeframe in order for them to do that. And now I think all of America is counting on them to show up and make sure that happens.’ The DACA program’s uncertain fate continues to serve as leverage for the president to demand funding to construct a wall between the U.S. and Mexico.

He also wants an end to ‘chain migration,’ a system that allows green card holders to sponsor large numbers of relatives for lawful admission into the U.S. And Trump is demanding that Congress scrap a diversity visa lottery that awards residence and work permits to people who come from ‘underrepresented’ countries. He has said he prefers a ‘merit-based’ system that pays no notice to anyone’s country of origin. Trump’s wall in particular, a constant campaign promise that consistently riled up crowds in 2015 and 2016, has become a sticking point for many Democrats.

At least one outspoken congressional advocate for illegal immigrants, however, is willing to grudgingly go along. ‘I think the wall is a monumental waste of taxpayers’ money, and it’s to build a monument to stupidity and it’s just idiotic,’ Rep. Luis Gutierrez of Illinois said Sunday on ABC. ‘Having said that, if that’s what it’s going to take in order to put 800,000 young men and women in the country … in a safe place and put them on course to full integration in our society … I say pay it.'”

While DACA protections will likely diminish starting March 6th, and the likelihood that some deportations will take place is high, Democrats only have themselves to blame. They have had since October to try and negotiate a DACA deal yet they have held out until now to push for a government shutdown. It makes no sense other than to call it a publicity stunt.

They are willfully holding the American people hostage over DACA kids who only account for 690,000 people out of the population. While the Children’s Health Insurance Program is something that 8,500,000 children are covered by. Democrats willingly putting the lives of 8,500,000 children at risk all to protect 690,000. The numbers just don’t add up no matter which way you spin it. There is no excuse for what they did.

Share if you agree the #SchumerShutdown was the responsibility of Democrats and that Republicans shouldn’t be blamed for DACA issues when Democrats just haven’t prioritized it in recent months.

BREAKING!! TRUMP Just Made URGENT Announcement!! THIS IS SO AWESOME!!!

HELL YEAH!! GO TRUMP!

Published

on

The government has been shut down for three days. But it is expected to reopen tomorrow. Senate Democrats forced the shutdown by filibustering on Friday. Thus, over the weekend long and bipartisan talks took place over how to end the shutdown. Eventually, both sides came to an agreement.

The government shutdown came about because Senate and House Democrats wanted DACA funding included in the continuing resolution budget package. However, it was not in it. Even though they agreed with everything else in the budget including extending Children’s Health Insurance Program funding for six years. Democrats refused to end the shutdown until DACA was discussed while President Trump insisted he would not negotiate DACA until the government was reopened.

The Independent Journal Review reported,

On Monday, the Senate voted to end the government shutdown after just three days of being unable to reach a deal on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and immigration reform. President Donald Trump repeatedly said that funding for the border wall would need to be included in the deal, and Schumer argued for DACA to be included, as well.

In the end, Schumer gave in to a plan where Democrats would accept a deal to end the shutdown in exchange for opening negotiations on DACA. The vote landed at 81-18.
Now Trump has issued a statement saying that Democrats had finally “come to their senses” to fund the military, border patrol, first responders, and insurance for vulnerable children. He then said his administration would “work toward solving the problem of very unfair illegal immigration,” but only if “it is good for our country.””

The President spent the weekend at the White House residence on standby should the Senate finally come to a conclusion. They did, however, it wasn’t until Monday when a decision was made. While at the White House the President was reported to be restless while on the phone with Republican legislators and some informal congressional aides.

While some took issue over his notable absence from the discussions he did exactly what he was supposed to. It isn’t his job to craft a budget, it is Congress’ job. His role is more of a principal, a lender of last resort, the last person you want to go to. Going to him indicates a failure on the part of Congress and the Senate to do their job and negotiate a bill that could pass. In the end, he won and thereby the American people won.

USAToday reported,

Yet Democrats on Monday made their own case for at least a partial victory. They noted that the new spending plan lasts less than three weeks, winning them a commitment to work on a permanent resolution to the issue of DREAMers, the undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children.

If there’s no agreement by Feb. 8, they warned, there could be a rerun of what Democrats called the “Trump shutdown,” which took place as both parties positioned themselves for congressional elections in a little less than ten months. “The Republican majority now has seventeen days to prevent the DREAMers from being deported,” said Senate Democratic leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., speaking on the Senate floor.

On Monday, Senate Democrats came together with Republicans on a short-term government funding bill — with a promise from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to work toward a bipartisan compromise on immigration, border security, and a broader budget outline before then. The vote was 81-18. 

Sanders said Trump hopes to sign the bill later Monday, after the House votes on the short-term spending measure and the budget office does necessary paperwork. Shortly after the vote, Trump met at the White House with a group of Senators — all Republicans, and all viewed as relative hard-liners on the immigration.  The government has been partially shut down since 12:01 a.m. Saturday, after senators blocked a bill that would have kept the government funded for the next month. The legislation came up with a vote of 50-49 – about 10 votes short of overcoming a Democratic filibuster.

Democrats opposed the bill in part because it did not include provisions for young immigrants protected under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program known as DACA. Trump announced in September that he would end the program, saying Obama didn’t have the legal authority to give the undocumented immigrants legal status. But he also gave Congress six months to enshrine the program into law. 

Democrats argued the president was backing away from his commitment to finding a solution to help protect these 800,000 immigrants from deportation. “We expect that a bipartisan deal on DACA will receive fair consideration and an up-or-down vote on the floor,” Schumer said Monday. Trump himself has been largely silent throughout the shutdown crisis, except for an occasional tweet. But across the globe, Vice President Pence was quick to cast Democrats’ efforts as a loss. “The Schumer shutdown failed,” Pence said during a news conference in Israel, placing the blame squarely on the top Senate Democrat. “Now that the government is reopening, Congress can get back to work advancing the president’s agenda.””
