‘Dumbest Thing I’ve Ever Read’: School Sends Parents Pledge of Allegiance Waiver

It is sad that a waiver from the pledge is necessary

Published

on

In 1892 a minister by the name of Francis Bellamy penned the words of what we now call The Pledge of Allegiance. It was first published with the instructions below in the ‘Youth’s Companion’ that same year:

At a signal from the Principal the pupils, in ordered ranks, hands to the side, face the Flag. Another signal is given; every pupil gives the flag the military salute — right hand lifted, palm downward, to a line with the forehead and close to it. Standing thus, all repeat together, slowly, “I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands; one Nation indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.” At the words, “to my Flag,” the right hand is extended gracefully, palm upward, toward the Flag, and remains in this gesture till the end of the affirmation; whereupon all hands immediately drop to the side.

While there have been additions to the Pledge of Allegiance and some changes in how we salute, the intention has always been the same. To pledge our dedication and commitment to all that America has to offer and to protect and show gratitude for those blessings. Recently, a school in Florida who wants to have the students perform the pledge every morning has had to start sending out a strange piece of paper regarding the Pledge of Allegiance.

A man whose niece attends the school got hold of the paper and saw that it was a waiver to bow out of saying the pledge. That man, Micah Brienen shared a picture of it on his facebook page and it went viral. It asked parents who want their child excused from reciting the pledge to sign and return the waiver. It reads: “I understand my rights as a parent and I request that my child, noted above, be excused from reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. This request includes standing and placing his/her right hand over his/her heart.”

Brienen took a picture of what his sister-in-law wrote on the paper before sending it back to school: “This is the dumbest thing I have ever read and I am so ashamed of this.”

It is sad that a waiver from the pledge is necessary. Growing up there were a couple Jehovas Witness friends who remained at their desk during the pledge. They also stay out of ALL politics and celebrations. It’s a statement showing their devotion to God in their own way. But this new culture where people refuse to show gratitude for the land they live in or refuse to show respect for it is a whole other ballgame. That is a statement against the United States or against God. I appreciate why the school sends out the waiver because they don’t want to allow children just to bow out because they want to, they want the parents to decide what’s best for their child. I am sad and ashamed for the parents who would sign this and show such ingratitude and disrespect to the great Nation in which we live. This picture went so viral that it also ended up on Fox News.

Protesting Packers QB Just Got Kissed With NASTY Karma After Refusing NFL Commissioner’s Rule

This is what you get if you hate America!

Published

on

The national anthem protests in the NFL seem to be diminishing, but not entirely gone after NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell stated that players should stand for the anthem.

While some players in the NFL have begun to back peddle on their social warrior stance during work hours, others have not.

One of those players is Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers who appears to be the latest victim of the NFL protest curse.

A few weeks ago, President Trump waded into the protest fray by stating that NFL team owners should bench or fire players who did not stand for the anthem.

Instead of these arrogant NFL players taking a step back and eating a piece of “humble pie,” they only upped their protests on the field.

That particular week, hundreds of players either knelt on the ground, linked arms or cowardly hid in their locker rooms while the anthem played.

However, quarterback Aaron Rodgers took it one step too far by demanding fans to link arms in the stands at a Thursday night game at Lambeau Field three weeks ago.

The Green Bay fans were a bit perplexed by the multimillionaire activist’s order and refused to follow Rodgers directive.

After the game in an interview, Rodgers was so miffed by the fans choosing not to give into his outrageous stipulation that he dissolved into a temper tantrum on air.

Rodgers blamed President Trump for the fans underwhelming response, and then it only got worse from there.

Shannon Sharpe, a Fox News sports anchor, went one step further by claiming that the Green Bay fans were racists since they did not follow Rodgers command.

So, that is why what happened this weekend to Aaron Rodgers appears to be sweet poetic justice.

On Sunday afternoon, during a game against the Minnesota Vikings, Aaron Rodgers was injured and reportedly has broken his collarbone. 

And here is where the entire situation begins to get a tad sticky.

You see, now that Aaron Rodgers is out potentially for the rest of the season with this injury that opens up a quarterback slot.

So, that means it is within the realm of possibility that Colin Kaepernick could be called to fill the open slot. 

Here is more from Sports Illustrated:

If you want to look on the bright side after the devastating Aaron Rodgers broken collarbone, Packer Nation, think of this: Your team is 4-2, tied for first place in the NFC North with 10 games to play.

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.

Desperate Kaepernick Just Used Everything He Had To Take Trump Down – Now He’s REALLY In Trouble

Wow..he really embarrassed himself this time!

Published

on

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 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.

The Daily Wire reported:

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 in 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.

It’s Official! Traitor Repub About To Deliver Impeachment Against Trump – Here’s SICK Reason Why

Time to get rid of all these America-haters!

Published

on

Despite the usual support given to a President by his own party, a few of the Republicans serving on Capitol Hill today are less than supportive of President Trump. Maybe it stems from his lack of willingness to play ball with their usual antics or perhaps they would have had a problem with anyone that wasn’t an establishment puppet, but the results are the same; the President is fighting against two parties in Washington.

One might expect a little push back on the unconventional issues that the President wants to address, like making Mexico pay for their own wall. Americans love the idea, but many politicians see it as unreasonable. That’s tough luck for them, considering it’s what the President and the American people want, however, what we didn’t expect when we elected our lawmakers is that they would try to stab us in the back and remove the man we sent to the White House.

However, according to The Hill, that’s exactly what some of our elected officials are doing. At least two Republicans are working to impeach the President that we fairly elected:

“Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) in an interview on Sunday said at least one Republican is considering supporting articles of impeachment against President Trump.

‘I have one Republican that has said he is looking at it, he’s considering it,’ Cohen said on ‘MSNBC Live.’ ‘I have other Republicans, just like Sen. Bob Corker suggested, who have told me on a constant basis that they know this man is not balanced, he is not capable of continuing to lead us.’”

According to Cohen, more than just a few of the establishment lackeys in Washington aren’t a fan of our current President, these two are just spearheading the push for what they all really want.

“Cohen said those Republicans will ‘privately tell you, by their words and by their expressions, that they would like to see an end’ to Trump’s presidency.

‘But the Republican base is still supportive of Trump. That’s who’s strong in their primaries, and politically, they can’t come out and say it,’ Cohen told host Alex Witt.”

So, to recap, our representatives don’t like the POTUS, and they can’t speak out against him for fear of not getting re-elected, but they’re going to support a push to remove him from office – even though they know it’s not what their constituents want. If that’s not a direct violation of what they’re sent to Washington to do, I don’t know what is.

“Cohen announced in August he would introduce articles of impeachment against Trump based on his comments following the deadly violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va.

Another Democrat, Rep. Al Green (Texas), unveiled articles of impeachment against Trump on the House floor last week.

One of Green’s articles of impeachment states that Trump ‘is fueling an alt-right hate machine” that’s causing “immediate injury to American society.’

Another states that Trump engaged in ‘perfidy’ by falsely claiming that he lost the popular vote to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton because millions of people voted illegally in the 2016 presidential election.

However, Green didn’t force a vote on the articles of impeachment, saying he wanted his colleagues and the public to be able to view them first.”

So to translate that from political speak into layman’s terms; the Democrats have been trying to pull this impeachment crap as a publicity stunt for months, but it’s just been them acting like Democrats and objecting to a Republican President who’s getting things done.

It’s time that lawmakers across both houses of Congress and both political parties consider the fact that perhaps he’s not fueling “alt” anything, maybe he was elected because he mirrors the actual values that middle-class Americans, also called the silent majority, feel are important.

To that end, Jerry Falwell, the President of Liberty University has a name for the traitors and a plan to fix the problem. In an interview on “Fox & Friends Weekend,” Falwell explained why he coined the phrase “Fake Republicans.”

“I think there are several Republicans in the Senate who pretended to be conservative Republicans . . . and they really don’t share the same values,” he said.

“And I think if they will get out of the way and honor the values that they ran on, keep the promises that they made to their constituencies when they ran, I think Donald Trump has the potential to be the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln.”

He added voters needed to “find candidates who are not professional politicians.”

“I think it’s time for the political class to go,” he declared. “I think they need to find people who have been successful in other fields like Donald Trump was and elect them next year, primary these guys out of there. I think that’s the only way it’s going to be solved.”

Yes, that solution would mean a huge upset in Washington, but it might be the only solution that will get the job done. We see what can happen when just the President is replaced with a real person with a real understanding of budgets and business. Who knows what this country could do if the entire Republican population of government were real people who understood real problems. That would be a huge step toward making America great again.
