Every Protesting NFL Player Just Got BRUTAL Surprise From The Last Person They Ever Expected

America-haters just got slapped right in the Face!

Published

on

And the once great sports network has sunk even lower this week. 

As most everyone knows by now, the ultra Liberal ESPN sports network’s anchor Jamele Hill, who is a Detroit Michigan native, and a former Detroit Free Press sports writer, took it upon herself to post a series of Tweets calling Trump “the most ignorant, offensive president of my lifetime” and called his election the “direct result of white supremacy.” To top off her blatant ignorant statements she made them on the 16th anniversary of 911.

And this is ESPN’s weak reply:

NY Times Reports:

A TV network is accused of political bias: hardly a surprise in 2017. But what if the network is a sports broadcaster?

An unusual strain of partisanship — at least in the sports corner of the news media — emerged last week after ESPN announced it was laying off dozens of employees. The public reaction included jeers toward the network for what some viewers perceived as a leftward slant in ESPN’s coverage, a reflection of how the country’s raw political nerves and cultural divisions have spilled over into a world that many value as a pristine redoubt from worldly concerns: sports.

“It’s a sign of the times,” said Neal Pilson, a former president of CBS Sports who is an adjunct professor at the Columbia University School of Professional Studies. “I think people are looking for bias, and opinion, and information that in some way involves some hidden signal or indication that there’s a political bias in one direction or another.”

It is not as if American sports and politics have never intersected. From Jackie Robinson’s breaking Major League Baseball’s color barrier to Billie Jean King’s fight for gender equality in tennis to John Carlos and Tommie Smith’s black power salute at the 1968 Olympics, many moments and figures in sports history mark social mileposts.

And ESPN has had no shortage of political story lines to explore lately, after quarterback Colin Kaepernick knelt during the national anthem in protest of what he saw as widespread American racism, the United States women’s soccer team and women’s hockey team raised issues of equal pay in labor disputes, and several members of the New England Patriots declined an invitation to the White House.

In some cases, ESPN has been accused of putting a thumb on the scale of social debates that are not settled. A galvanizing incident for critics was Caitlyn Jenner’s winning the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs, ESPN’s annual award show, in 2015, after Ms. Jenner, an Olympic gold medalist in the decathlon, announced she was transgender.

In other cases, conservative writers like Ben Domenech have cast ESPN’s perceived political approach as flawed simply for the network’s willingness to mingle politics and sports rather than preserving its TV channels and digital platforms as sports-only zones, an escape from society’s headier issues.

 Even Linda Cohn, a longtime anchor of “SportsCenter,” ESPN’s flagship highlights show, blamed politics for some of the network’s woes. In a radio interview on Thursday, she said, “I felt that the old-school viewers were put in a corner,” adding, “If anyone wants to ignore that fact, they’re blind.”

 

The claim that the layoffs somehow resulted from disenchantment with political bias is most likely untrue. Industry analysts have tied ESPN’s job cuts to radically shifting habits of media consumption — notably the fact that millions of people are turning away from cable TV, which for decades has been ESPN’s mother lode for revenue — and to other business-related factors.

“I’m not aware of a tangible connection that has expressed itself through any data,” said Brian Wieser, an analyst at Pivotal Research, in reference to theories that a political slant helped cause layoffs. He added, “There are much more obvious things to point to.”

Still, some viewers seized on a rare moment of public vulnerability for ESPN to air their grievances, an echo of Gamergate, a heated dispute that escalated a few years ago when video game reviewers were accused of inappropriately infusing politics and biases on other subjects into their work, leading to a campaign of harassment against those who were derogatorily called “social justice warriors.”

(It is difficult to discern, of course, whether the complaints lodged against ESPN on social media and other digital platforms represented a small or large portion of the network’s viewership.)

In The Ringer, the writer Bryan Curtis recently concluded, sympathetically, that sportswriting had become “a liberal profession.” In debates such as whether the Washington Redskins’ name and imagery are offensive, he said, most sportswriters consider there to be only one right-thinking side.

The conservative writer Michael Brendan Dougherty responded in The Week that the sports media’s “hegemonic liberalism” put it “in an antagonistic position not just with fans, but with the entire sports culture beyond journalism.”

ESPN’s president, John Skipper, told the network ombudsman last year that ESPN and its parent company, Disney, were committed to “diversity and inclusion,” and that they “view this not as a political stance but as a human stance.”

But conservatives might disagree with Mr. Skipper’s parsing, and Bob Ley, one of ESPN’s longest-tenured anchors, perhaps hinted at one byproduct of ESPN’s “diversity and inclusion” when he told the ombudsman, Jim Brady, in reference to gender and racial emphases in personnel: “We’ve done a great job of diversity. But the one place we have miles to go is diversity of thought.”

An ESPN-commissioned study last October found that 28 percent of the network’s consumers believed it was politically biased, according to figures provided by ESPN. Of that 28 percent, 56 percent believed the network was biased in a liberal direction, while 37 percent said it was biased in a conservative direction.

Two events in particular polarized viewers against ESPN, according to the study, which was conducted by Langer Research Associates: Ms. Jenner’s receiving her award, and the firing of the analyst Curt Schilling after he ridiculed transgender people in a Facebook post in response to North Carolina’s so-called bathroom bill. The two incidents made 16 percent and 12 percent more viewers, respectively, feel worse about ESPN than better (the majority’s views were unaffected).

By contrast, coverage of Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted by an N.F.L. team, and a town hall event in October with President Barack Obama both resulted in slightly more ESPN viewers feeling better about the network than feeling worse, according to ESPN.

Clay Travis, a Fox Sports contributor and editor of the website Outkick the Coverage, has labeled the network “MSESPN,” a reference to MSNBC, the cable news channel that frequently skews liberal in its analysis. Giving the courage award to Ms. Jenner, he said in an interview, smacked of “social engineering” on behalf of ESPN. He has also criticized what he called the “lionization” of Mr. Kaepernick.

Mr. Pilson said he believed that amid the present political deluge, even sports media outlets could not help but get wet.

“People are either anticipating, expecting or microwatching sportscasters to see if they can detect any bias,” he said.

Barry Blyn, ESPN’s vice president for consumer insights, noted in an interview that ratings for CNN, Fox News and MSNBC had not fallen off since November.

“The election isn’t over,” he said. “And because it isn’t over, everything is political.”

But not everyone in sports, or African-Americans, agree with this geniuses assessment of President Trump and his supporters. The four-time World Series champion Darryl Strawberry who joined FOX Business on Wednesday morning to discuss the ESPN anchor’s outburst on social media about President Trump made it very clear that he wants no part of this far left vitriol.

He clearly states that no one should call anyone anything and he added that President Trump is a great man to him. He also claimed that every time he has been in the presence of President Trump he has always gracious to him and respectful in every way possible. He later added that he really loves the president and his family, who he said have always been kind to him.

But perhaps the best thing he had to say was the advice he gave to those ungrateful ball tossers who have taken to not standing during our national anthem.

‘I wouldn’t do it and I’m not against guys that are doing it, but we have a problem in America, and we need to come together as people, not color but as people,’ Strawberry said. ‘And we need to understand that God has a perfect plan for all of us to come together and love each other and really work together. And I think when we work against each other, it separates us.’

Strawberry decided to make his feeling known after Michael Bennett, from the Seatle Seahawks, accused the Las Vegas Metro Police Department of profiling him for being black, and in doing so violating his civil rights. The rich ball tosser stated that officers pointed their weapons at him and threatened to blow his f****** head off. Wonder if anyone saw this?

Please share if you agree Strawberry is a class act…

BREAKING!! IT’S ABOUT TO BE DISMISSED!! Trump VICTORY! HELL YEAH!

DON’T MESS WITH TEAM TRUMP!!

Published

on

Coincidences happen all the time to people on a daily basis that hardly makes anyone think twice. For example, you bump into someone at the grocery store you were just talking about, or you want chicken for dinner, and your spouse brings it home without you asking. You get the gist, those are coincidences, but in case of the fake Russian Collusion investigation and Hillary Clinton, that word could be the worst to describe the latest developments.

Ok, let us back up a bit and recap everything that has recently occurred.

Earlier in December, the American people learned that Special Counsel Robert Mueller used information obtained from disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok. Then it was discovered Strzok was involved in the Hillary Clinton email investigation and he was also apart of launching the Trump investigation too. Then Peter was fired, and the world learned of his affair and text messages between himself and mistress and co-worker Lisa Page, who was also part of the Trump-Russia probe.

As these text messages were reported on, one message found between Strzok and Page showed a sinister plot underway to stop Trump’s candidacy. On August 15, 2016, Strzok texted Page in regards to Trump,  “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in [deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe’s] office that there’s no way he gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40…”

Now, just recently we learned that Strzok and Page sent more messages to each other suggesting that they knew then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch would clear Hillary Clinton of any charges. Shortly after that, Lynch announced that she would do what FBI Director James Comey wanted her to do regarding the Hillary Clinton email investigation. Then Lynch was caught on camera with Bill Clinton in the infamous tarmac shot, and of course, Strzok and Page could not help but message each other about it.

Strzok texts Page, “Timing looks like hell.” To which Page responds, “It’s a real profile in courage [sic] since she knows no charges will be brought.”

I do not know about you, but that sure sounds like the FBI was working hard to protect Hillary Clinton and not at all a coincidence. So, that brings us to today’s discovery where hundreds of text messages for five months between Strzok and Page have gone missing, which the Department of Justice blames on a “technical glitch.”

Though while the rest of us know, this was not a coincidence it does spell good news for President Trump and the rest of the country. Now that these text messages have gone missing, it could form the motion to dismiss Mueller from this absurd Russian Collusion probe and end the madness once and for all.

Here is more from Law & Crime:

The fact that now nearly half a year’s worth of text messages between Strzok and Page during the time leading up to Robert Mueller‘s appointment as Special Counsel weren’t preserved by the Justice Department will surely fuel motions from Team Trump’s lawyers against the investigation.

Months of text messages don’t just accidentally disappear. One past conversation between Strzok and Page indicated that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch knew there would be no charges filed against Clinton well before that investigation ended. Given the significant evidence of impropriety in the Clinton case, a foregone conclusion of innocence before the FBI wrapped up their investigation looks shady at best. Trump’s lawyers will surely argue that after those messages came to light, the DOJ intentionally “lost” those five months’ worth of other messages.

Look for Paul Manafort to jump all over this. He’s already fighting his indictment, claiming that Mueller is overstepping his authority and shouldn’t be running the investigation. Throw in this evidence that the investigation may have been tainted before Mueller even took over and that the DOJ could be covering up damaging information, and a motion to dismiss alleging prosecutorial misconduct is a near certainty.

And, the hits against Mueller do not stop there.

Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) is now asking that a second special counsel investigate the first special counsel, and for a good reason. There is now more than enough evidence to prove that this entire Russian Collusion investigation was politically motivated over the fact that Hillary Clinton lost the election.

These liberals are still so angry that their agenda to destroy America was stopped that they will do whatever it takes to make Trump pay and they don’t care who they hurt or how much division they cause. Hopefully, now these people who have done so much harm to the country will be forced to answer for their obstruction and justice will be finally dealt.

Traitor Chelsea Manning Caught! Could Be Heading Back To Prison!

LOCK HIM UP!!!

Frank Lea

Published

on

Traitor Bradley Manning became famous for leaking mass amounts of documentation to WikiLeaks, spending seven years in prison, and later being freed by former President Barrack Obama. Manning participated in traitorous behavior and became a full-blown anti-American transgender. Barack Obama commuted Manning’s 35-year sentence, but his tirade against America didn’t stop. Brad became Chelsea, and he lives a lie trying to get others to accept his identity change. But the identity change is just another one of his gimmicks, much like his careless handling of documents.

After Obama restored Manning’s freedom, Manning then seemed to become hostile towards Americans, mostly Republicans, and anyone who refuses to believe or accept a full grown man in a dress who claims he is a woman. As Manning runs amok on his gender identity crisis, anti-American barrage on social media, and inability to be thankful for the country he ditched, but later freed him – he then makes a sudden announcement much more distracting than his change from pants to a dress. Manning announced that he would run for Senate.

People gasped at the notion that someone who mishandled that many American documents would want to run for a position with the government. Not only was this man a traitor to his country and comrades, but he spends time on social media trashing about with his generic nonsense that Americans can’t stand. Now he wants to represent Americans in the government with a seat in the Senate. There appears to be a significant conflict of interest for the country, but possibly an illegal situation as well.

But there’s a catch. The catch isn’t that someone has to zip up his dress in the back. The catch means Manning could be sent back to prison for running for Senate.

Based upon Manning’s status with the military and criminal conviction, there are two possible routes for him to be ineligible to run for Senate. Doing so could result in prosecution and a return to prison for the transgender traitor.

Daily Caller had more information about Manning’s potential run for Senate:
“The Army further stated that Manning holds an active-duty identification card and acknowledged his status and access to government health care prior to his release.

While Manning’s felony conviction does not appear to automatically disqualify a run for office, his active-duty status presents a much more troubling issue. Such a status, in other words, has enormous implications for engaging in any kind of political activity, especially a Senate run.

Dru Brenner-Beck, retired Army judge advocate general and president of the National Institute of Military Justice, told The Daily Caller News Foundation that on the face of it, Manning is prohibited by Department of Defense regulations from running for office while serving in an active-duty capacity. The only exception is if Secretary of Defense James Mattis grants explicit permission, a power that cannot be delegated by a secretary to anyone else.

According to Brenner-Beck, the regulation in question is DOD Directive 1344.10 Directive 1344.10, Political Activities by Members of the Armed Forces, dated Feb. 9, 2008, para. 4.2.2.

“That paragraph is punitive and violation of it subjects her to courts-martial for violation of a lawful order or regulation under Article 92,” Brenner-Beck told TheDCNF. “Her activities campaigning for herself and fundraising for herself may also violate other provisions of the DoD Directive, themselves separately punishable under the UCMJ, art. 92.”

Brenner-Beck added that prosecution in this case is a “discretionary decision by her chain of command.”

Victor M. Hansen, law professor at New England Law and former military lawyer, also agreed that Manning’s run for office is legally prohibited and could result in prosecution.”

Based on the information from Daily Caller, it appears as though the only way that Manning can run, without facing prosecution, is to receive a granted permission from James Mattis. As per the law, it appears as though the Department of Defense does not permit running for office while still listed as an active-duty participant. If that’s the case with Manning, then Manning must seek permission, and forgiveness, from General Mattis. Receiving that from Mattis might be next to impossible after the implications of Manning’s mishandling of documents and work with WikiLeaks.

When a former military attorney agrees that Manning is legally prohibited from running for Senate and could face prosecution, then that’s information that one must believe is right. Mr. Hansen, who now teaches law, would be at risk of providing false information if his words were untrue. He wouldn’t risk that when there’s nothing for him to gain upon delivering, or agreeing with, data that suggests Manning’s run for Senate is unlawful.

There’s many Americans who would enjoy watching Manning placed in handcuffs again.

If he runs for Senate, then it could certainly go that route, and it will be an ugly battle.

Americans reacted strongly to Manning’s announcement.

BREAKING NEWS! THEY’VE GONE MISSING!! Clintons SILENCE another!!

THIS IS WAY TO SUSPICIOUS!

Published

on

In the months since the change in administration, there has been a constant stream of finger pointing and blame placing. The Democrats seriously shot themselves in the foot by insisting on an investigation into the Russia collusion theory, assuming that they would find something on President Trump. In reality, all that has been uncovered is a whole lot of somewhat shady business deals and back ally meetings between Hillary supporters and every possible saboteur.

The potential obstruction of justice charges is piling up. Everyone from Hillary to Comey to lower level FBI agents are looking as guilty as a kid with his hand in a cookie jar. In this case, the cookie jar looks a lot like career advancement and those involved are still trying to cover the tracks that they took to get there.

Since the FBI has been proven to be compromised, a Congressional probe is being utilized to see what they might be covering up, and the results are appalling. According to The Gateway Pundit, recent reports reveal that FBI officials, decided, in their own infinite wisdom to omit text messages received by disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok between Dec. 14, 2016, and May 17, 2017:

AP reports:

“In addition to the communications already made public, the Justice Department on Friday provided Johnson’s committee with 384 pages of text messages, according to a letter from the Wisconsin lawmaker that was obtained by The Associated Press.

But, according to the letter, the FBI told the department that its system for retaining text messages sent and received on bureau phones had failed to preserve communications between Strzok and Page over a five-month period between Dec. 14, 2016, and May 17, 2017. May 17 was the date that Mueller was appointed as special counsel to oversee the Russia investigation.

According to Johnson’s letter, the Bureau told Stephen Boyd, the Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legislative Affairs, that due to FBI-provided Samsung 5 mobile phones with software upgrades that ‘conflicted,’ with ‘collection capabilities,’ the text messages were not recorded.”

At this point we are faced with one of two problems; either a grossly incompetent Federal Bureau of Investigation, or a deeply corrupt one. Who’s to say which is worse. They’re apparently staking their bets on the incompetence angle getting them less time behind bars. However, if this turns out to be obstruction of justice, originating in the Justice Department, it will truly be time for an overhaul/swamp drain/chopping block situation.

“However, according to the Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross, the FBI claimed it the reportedly missing text messages to Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz on August 10th, 2017.

‘After finding a number of politically-oriented text messages between Page and Strzok, the OIG sought from the FBI all text messages between Strzok and Page from their FBI-issued phones through November 30, 2016, which covered the entire period of the Clinton e-mail server investigation,’ Horowitz wrote to Grassley and Johnson on Wednesday.

The FBI handed over those messages on July 20, 2017. After reviewing those exchanges, Horowitz expanded the investigation to include all of the text messages exchanged between Strzok and Page from Nov. 30, 2016 to July 28, 2017.

Horowitz’s office received those messages on Aug. 10.

Here is a screenshot from Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitiz’s letter to Grassley and Johnson confirming the FBI successfully sent over Page and Strzok’s text messages.

In December 13th, Horowitz confirmed to Johnson and Grassley that the text messages were received. However, just over a year later, Johnson, citing Boyd, said the FBI never handed over the text messages.

The conflicting reports raise new questions about verification processes used by the Justice Department and FBI. Horowitz may have told Senate investigators that he received something, but had not verified they were indeed the text messages he requested.

Conversely, did the FBI knowingly or unknowingly send the wrong documents to Horowtiz, only for Inspector General’s Office to realize they were in possession of the incorrect documents?

According to Byron York of the Washington Examiner, Congressional investigators are deeply skeptical of the FBI losing the text messages:

“Very suspicious,” said one investigator about the news. “Hard to believe,” said another.

When asked to rate his trust of the FBI on a scale from 1 to 10, the investigator quickly answered, “Zero.”

Following reports of the FBI’s mystery “glitch,” Rep. Jordan Jordan (R-OH) is renewing his call for a second special counsel to investigate the former Mueller team member.

‘First the IRS destroyed emails pivotal to our investigation of their political targeting. Now the FBI ‘failed to preserve’ texts between Peter Strzok & Lisa Page following the ’16 election. The time for a second special counsel is now,’ tweeted the Ohio lawmaker.”

Basically, what Rep. Jordan is saying is that if you’ll buy that he’s also got a bridge he’d like to sell you. This is one of the most transparent and “the dog ate my homework” type excuses that the already shady FBI has ever tried to pass off on inelegant Americans yet.

It’s once again time for the Trump administration to force the loyal Clinton supporters to step back from protecting those who’ve broken the law and make sure that justice is served.
