The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Liberals and liberally-run companies seem to do this and expect to not suffer the consequences for it but continually do. Perhaps they are gluttons for punishment in addition to being crazy or just can’t pass up an opportunity to use their products to slam President Donald Trump.
There’s a long list of celebrities and companies who have destroyed everything they built to get a shot off at our president. Now, just a few short weeks after one adult beverage business lost a lot of customers when conservatives spotted what they printed on their bottles, popular vodka maker Smirnoff has now joined these losers at the bottom of the barrel.
The company recently rolled out a new ad campaign which someone who was probably paid to much to come up with, thought was pretty clever. Unfortunately, rather than record sales from it which they had hoped for, the spirits maker can expect a massive decline in sales after conservatives noticed what they did in their ad directly targeted at the Commander-in-Chief.
While 127 companies are actively protesting Trump’s important and necessary travel ban at the risk of their business, Smirnoff seems to be drunk off their liberal agenda in a different way that’s definitely going to leave them with a bad hangover. They can choose to ignore the mass exodus of customers that Pepsi had when their CEO came out against Trump and Target stores had after catering to gender confusion in their restrooms. However, taking a jab at his alleged and unproven ties to Russia was apparently worth it.
“Smirnoff Vodka is mocking President Trump’s alleged ties to Russia in a new ad campaign.”
“In a billboard spotted in the U.S., the vodka company touts that it’s ‘made in America’.”
‘But we’d be happy to talk about our ties to Russia under oath,’ the ad quips, referencing Trump, who said Friday that he would ‘100 percent’ be willing to testify under oath about the Russia investigation.”
The saying that there’s “no truth in advertising” couldn’t be more accurate in these recent campaigns, especially with regards to perceived ties Trump has with Russia. It’s a poorly planned jab too, I might add, considering that it came out about the same time as FBI Director James Comey’s testimony which only proved that what the president has been saying all along with true, effectively exonerating him of wrongdoing on a number of false allegations against him.”Trump insists that he never asked former FBI Director James Comey for loyalty, and did not ask Comey to drop the investigation into his former national security adviser Mike Flynn,” Washington Post reported.
While Smirnoff will soon experience the fallout of their failed ad campaign, which will be a loss in a lot of discerning customers, what happened to Heineken beer should have served as a warning.
Over Memorial Day weekend, the brewery decided to use the patriotic holiday to make a very un-American point on their bottles. When drinkers who like this brand picked up a six pack and popped the cap, they were rightfully irate to see what they were tricked into buying.
On the back of the bottles was a cheers for all their customers to drink to, which droves didn’t agree with as we saw in the immediate aftermath on social media.
“Here’s To An Open World
To a world without borders or barriers. To the belief that there is more that unites us than divides us. To find common ground to raise a bottle with the person next to you. Because a stranger is just a friend that you haven’t had a cold Heineken with yet.
Open Your World.”
If the bitter beer wasn’t enough to turn your stomach, the progressive political message on it would surely make you hurl, and it did for a lot of Americans. The incensed reactions among patriots were loud and clear online as was the immediate switch in brand loyalty. Beer is a pretty popular beverage in America and there’s a lot of brew options out there, including companies like Budweiser who proudly print the American flag on their cans and leave politics to people to discuss on their own — perhaps over a cold one.
We the people have the right to choose what we spend our hard-earned money on and you can bet it won’t be on a brand that doesn’t support our president.

Customers showing up at the KFC in Gallipolis, Ohio for some famous fried chicken and a side were met at the door with a new rule for this location, effective immediately. All it took was a simple sign notifying customers of what to expect inside that sent liberals into a rage, not only in Ohio but across the country when others found out about it.
Liberals are having a hard time coping with the actual hope and change that Donald Trump has brought back to this country. They liked it when Barack Obama was in charge who allowed everything counter to our Constitution to take place, much to the discontent of conservatives.
Turnabout is fair play and they don’t like that losing feeling especially when it means someone is getting something they are not.
With the trend of sitting out the National Anthem to protest apparent racism in this country and perceived police brutality among black males in full swing within the NFL, the Gallipolis KFC decided to send their own message. Supporting police officers is not popular among liberals who hate to be held accountable and think it’s racist when cops apprehend anyone who isn’t Caucasian.
Taking their opinion straight to the front of the restaurant, the chicken eatery posted their new rule in their front window and didn’t care who it offended. After all, it doesn’t take much to trigger a sensitive leftist and this sign did not disappoint in doing so, according to AWM.
“Police officers and other members of law enforcement have had it rough over the last few years. They’ve been the target of heinous attacks, been thought of as crooked and corrupt and have gone on trial for things normal citizens could never imagine.”
“But one restaurant in Gallipolis, Ohio is working to make sure that the men and women in uniform understand that they’re valued and cared for. So the owner of the restaurant hung a sign in the front window – and it’s raising some eyebrows!”
This location is giving away free food every single day, but only to those with a badge and a uniform. Liberals are all about the handouts but only for those who want to break the law, not the ones who risk their lives every hour on the job enforcing it.
“The sign states, ‘All uniformed police officers eat free every day’. This is to prove to them that they have the city’s respect and that all of their hard work and dedication is definitely appreciated,” Faith Tap explained. “A free warm meal is the perfect way to recharge their bodies and minds, which in turn, will keep the streets of Gallipolis even safer!”
Before anyone can say that the photo of this sign that went viral on social media was just a well played public relations move to stir up business, the employees of this location said that it is true and they really do serve police officers for free every single day, all year long. That generous show of appreciation in itself is what will keep customers coming to this KFC, regardless of who is mad about it and takes their hunger for some chicken someplace else.
Faith Tap reports that not everyone is in the neighborhood is happy about the gesture and some have reportedly criticized the KFC owners of this location for not extending the free meals to first responders and others as well. However, officers in Ohio, one of whom runs the Ohio Going Blue Facebook page, said these critics are missing the much bigger picture.
“This is a positive post, but some of you can’t see the bigger picture,” the Gallipolis Officer commented. “As an officer, I do not go into any establishment expecting [or] wanting anything to be free or…. even a discount, whether I’m in uniform or not, and I can tell you other officers feel the same way. We don’t like ‘special treatment.’ The fact is that KFC is acknowledging law enforcement, which is why this was posted. To those who stated that other first responders should also be acknowledged. My answer? ABSOLUTELY.”

This isn’t about the free food, it’s about a show of respect for the job they do which has been missing in society. Appreciation for law enforcement was all but completely lost after eight years of Obama making it okay to disrespect cops and showing his support for anti-police activists within the Black Lives Matter group.
With the surge in anti-cop rhetoric represented on the sidelines with every kneeling or sitting football player, each sign or show of gratitude for police officers in this country is still important. They have a tough job to do that protesters will never fully understand and a simple thank you, or free chicken goes a long way.
Please share this with others to show your support and appreciation for businesses who go out of their way to go against the liberal grain.
The Packers are 3-0 at home, and the next five weeks are, relatively speaking, exceedingly kind: New Orleans at home, bye, Detroit at home, at Chicago, Baltimore at home. That takes you to Thanksgiving.
Conceivably, the Packers can stay in it while Brett Hundley gets some experience and Mike McCarthy game-plans to hide the QB’s weaknesses.
Realistically, though, no very good team in the NFL is more reliant on its starting quarterback this season than the Packers are on Rodgers.
New England could lose Tom Brady and win with Jimmy Garoppolo; the Patriots, briefly, did last year—with Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett.
The Chiefs, I believe, would have a better chance to keep winning with the totally untested Pat Mahomes if Alex Smith went down. Philadelphia has Nick Foles. Atlanta has Matt Schaub. Denver has Brock Osweiler (5-2 as a Broncos starter).
Who makes that final drive in Dallas last week other than Rodgers, the frisky marksman? Who wins the playoff game in Dallas last year? Rodgers’ rare combination of elusiveness, running ability and precision is unmatched in football, now and maybe forever.
“It’s devastating, no question,” Packers wideout Randall Cobb said. “We still have to play football. We have a long season ahead of us to figure out what we’re going to do.”
My opinion: The Packers should call Colin Kaepernick on Monday morning. Not necessarily to sign him. If I were general manager Ted Thompson and coach Mike McCarthy, I’d want to meet with Kaepernick to see if he’d be willing to come in as a backup to Hundley while he took a crash course in the offense.
If they’re impressed enough with his approach and his conditioning, they could sign him and groom him to be Hundley’s backup—and, if Hundley struggles mightily (as he did Sunday at Minnesota) in the next game or two, then McCarthy can judge whether Kaepernick or number three quarterback Joe Callahan gives the Packers the best chance to win.
With the bye week coming up after Sunday’s game against the Saints, that would give the staff 19 days between now and the game after New Orleans to see how much Kaepernick could absorb, and to see if he can be better than Hundley or Callahan.
Maybe Kaepernick can be a fit. Maybe he can’t. And this grievance Kaepernick filed could complicate things too. I just know that if I were the Packers, I would want to feel very good about my quarterback situation when the rest of my team is a solid playoff contender.
Where Rodgers or Kaepernick ends up is anyone’s guess, but it seems that any player that wades into this national anthem protest does not end up in the winner’s circle.
It would be wise for these NFL players to play the game and leave their political beliefs outside the stadium alongside their absurd anthem protest.
Cop-hating third-string quarterback Colin Kaepernick is still unemployed, and he’s still scamming Americans. He spent all summer with his Muslim girlfriend and outspoken radio host Nessa Diab pushing his fake sob story about the NFL being a “racist organization” for not hiring him where he even enlisted the assistance of the NAACP to push the ridiculous narrative.
Despite leading the 49-ers to a historic season franchise loss last year, Kaepernick still wants to blame his unemployment on the NFL rather than facing the harsh reality that no one wants him because he’s simply a crappy football player. Over the weekend, Kaepernick lawyered up and filed a grievance against the NFL and President Trump claiming that there’s a massive “conspiracy” between the 32 NFL teams and Trump to keep him off the field. But just 12 hours after filing the paperwork to blame others for his woes, Kaepernick just got hit with even more embarrassing news that’s sending his peanut gallery of whining fans into a collective meltdown this week.
Former 49ers second string quarterback Colin Kaepernick lawyered up over the weekend, and has now filed a grievance claiming all 32 NFL teams conspired to keep him off the field.
Kaepernick, and his attorney — celebrity lawyer Mark Geragos — say that all 32 team owners conspired together to deny him a spot in professional football, even though Kaepernick walked away from a one-year option on his contract with the 49ers, and hasn’t been an asset to any football team since 2013.
NFL owners, the complaint says, “have colluded to deprive Mr. Kaepernick of employment rights in retaliation for Mr. Kaepernick’s leadership and advocacy for equality and social justice and his bringing awareness to peculiar institutions still undermining racial equality in the United States.” Kaepernick contends that it’s a “statistical impossibility” that he has not, so far, obtained gainful employment as a professional football player.
In his complaint, Kapernick also went straight after President Trump, alleging that the President is in on this conspiracy to keep him out of the NFL. Via Daily Wire:
“The complaint also alleges that President Donald Trump, the “executive branch of the United States government” is at the heart of the collective agreement; Kaepernick claims that he’s been out of work in “response to coercion and calculated coordination from the Executive Branch of the United States government.”
According to the Federalist Papers, Kaepernick’s latest tantrum will not be going anywhere, as his ridiculous claims completely lack any sort of evidence whatsoever. The Federalist Papers reported:
Colin Kaeperneck’s latest accusations against NFL owners of collusion do not meet the NFL’s Collective Bargaining Agreement’s conditions for burden or proof.
“Collusion occurs when two or more teams, or the league and at least one team,” Sports Illustrated explained in March, “join to deprive a player of a contractually earned right. Such a right is normally found in the collective bargaining agreement signed by a league and its players’ association. For example, the right of a free-agent player to negotiate a contract with a team cannot be impaired by a conspiracy of teams to deny that a player a chance to sign.”
According to the CBA, the fact that NFL teams have declined to offer Kaepernick a contract does not prove collusion. Furthermore, a free agent’s “playing skills” do not represent evidence for collusion.
ESPN says that Kaepernick’s grievance is vague and unconvincing, blaming President Donald Trump for coercing NFL owners into withholding offers. ESPN reports:
The NFL’s collective bargaining agreement, which governs such disputes, makes clear that the failure to sign a player is not in itself enough to prove collusion. Instead, it must be combined with evidence that teams entered into an agreement, express or implied, to bar the player’s employment.
Here’s the relevant wording of the CBA’s “burden of proof” for collusion:
“The failure by a club or clubs to negotiate, to submit offer sheets, or to sign contracts with restricted free agents or transition players, or to negotiate, make offers, or sign contracts for the playing services of such players or unrestricted free agents, shall not, by itself or in combination only with evidence about the playing skills of the player(s) not receiving any such offer or contract, satisfy the burden of proof set forth …”
[…] But his grievance, filed by attorney Mark Geragos, does not provide any specific evidence of an agreement to collude. It vaguely references NFL general managers who have cited “directives from NFL owners to not let Kaepernick so much as practice with an NFL team.” It also accuses owners of submitting to the demands of President Donald Trump, whom it terms “an organizing force” in squashing what has become a weekly protest among at least some NFL players.
Nice try, Kaepernick. Looks like it’s back to the drawing board to find an accusation that will stick. As of now, it looks like Kaepernick’s position of playing left couch-seat cushion for the rest of the season will be a permanent one.
