John Legend Says That The National Anthem Is “Weak” And Racist

Celebrities are finally giving us the opinions we never asked for on the Colin Kaepernick fiasco, and they’re every bit as stupid as you’d imagine.

Celebrities are finally giving us the opinions we never asked for on the Colin Kaepernick fiasco, and they’re every bit as stupid as you’d imagine. For anyone out of the loop, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback refused to stand for the national anthem to a game (which his team then lost), justifying his actions in stating that he wouldn’t “honor a nation that oppresses black people.”

Kaepernick is so oppressed himself that he was adopted and raised by two white parents, and now boasts a salary of nearly $20 million to toss a ball around. He was specifically talking about police brutality, apparently unaware that it affects white people more than blacks.

Now, celebrity opinion has made its way into the national dialogue, and it makes about as much sense as Kaepernick.

Via The Young Cons

John Legend is now claiming that the national anthem is racist.

“For those defending the current anthem, do you really truly love that song?” Legend tweeted. “I don’t and I’m very good at singing it. Like, one of the best.”

“My vote is for America the Beautiful. Star spangled banner is a weak song anyway. And then you read this..”

Legend then linked to an article that claimed the lyrics of the national anthem “literally celebrate the murder of African-Americans.”

He’s likely making reference to the third stanza of the national anthem, which states “No refuge could save the hireling and slave. From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave, O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.”

There’s just one problem: These lyrics are describing slaves, who were, as Legend is unaware, hired by the British. This song is not about killing black slaves. It’s about fighting the enemy, who was a decorated British officer or the escaped slave hired to do his dirty work.
It is true that we no longer include that stanza when singing the nation anthem, but that’s not because of the mention of a slave. According to Encyclopedia Britannica, “The third stanza is customarily omitted out of courtesy to the British.” To the British — not slaves!
John Legend should stick to music. He’s godawful at it – but not as bad as he is at history and politics.

BREAKING NEWS out of Pennsylvania! This is HUGE – Changes Everything!

Published

on

We have some heartwarming news at a time when many in our society are still reeling from the eight awful years of the Obama economy. Where the media would try to convince us that a <1% GDP was a good thing, and that the current level of 3% isn’t even a possibility to attain anymore.

This year, the crowds at most stores are larger and the orders online are more plentiful than they have been during the past eight years of former President Barack Hussein Obama. But it’s still a difficult time of the year for many as parents prepare for the Christmas and Chanukah gift-giving season.

According to a Walmart employee, an anonymous donor actually paid for all of the items on layaway at a Pennsylvania Walmart for the second year in a row, giving 200 families an easier Christmas. The sale amounted to a total of 40k dollars. That’s quite a gift for anyone to donate in a manner that does not even get them a tax deduction or that will never get them any recognition for their generous act and kindness towards their fellow man.

Via Christmas Spirit:

The Meaning of Christmas is for all

In the beginning God created two people, a man and a woman. All nationalities and ethnic groups came from these two people. God gave man an innate ability to know Him. He gave you the ability to understand the difference between good and evil, and lets you choose either. Through understanding the nature of good and evil, every man has an opportunity to know that a holy God exists.

Man knows that he should worship God, but often chooses not to do so. Creating all sorts of religions, philosophies, ideologies and psychological theories, man began to believe in himself rather than in God. Some even began to proclaim that the Creator of the universe does not exist! When the people of any society follow God’s laws it is good for everyone. But people don’t love and respect each other. They just keep on deceiving each other, and doing all the sins which destroy societies. Distorting God’s true moral law, man made up his own morals, but doesn’t even carry those out.

In spite of all this, God loves and wants to have a close relationship with each person. God loves people but can never be pleased with a man’s sins. All men sin. Therefore man’s sin separates him from God. And so it seems to some that God either doesn’t exist or is irrelevant. Some people, however, feel that God is somewhere around, and fear Him, but don’t relate to him properly. Yet everyone should want to have a right relationship with God, because without God you will always feel a void in your heart.

Occasionally someone understands “the sin I committed displeases God”, and in order to appease his conscience, may do some sort of religious ritual or “good deed” to try to make amends for his wrong-doings. But unfortunately those things do not please God. In other words, they have no power to make amends for sins before the completely holy Creator God. We can’t relate to God in just any way that we decide to. We must relate to God in ways that are acceptable to Him.

After a person’s physical body dies his spirit goes to stand before God to be judged. Man’s spirit is never reincarnated in another animal or man. God knows the thoughts and actions of every person’s life and will judge them in truth according to His established laws. After God judges a man, the spirit of that man must go to either heaven or hell and be there for eternity.

In heaven there is no evil. Everything is completely holy and perfect there. If you go to heaven, you will experience happiness forever. Some people think that they can get to heaven in some way other than that which God has established. For example, many people mistakenly think that if their good outweighs their bad, then they will go to heaven. But if a person who committed only one sin were to enter heaven, then heaven would no longer be a holy and perfect place. Even before the creation of the world God had this plan for a perfect place for man. So, no sin is allowed into heaven. The most morally good person in the world sins sometimes, and cannot cleanse away that sin through good deeds and effort. So no one has the ability in himself to go to heaven. But through God’s salvation there is a way to go there.

What about hell? God punishes all sin. The punishment for any sin is to live your life without a relationship with God, and then after you die, to go to hell and be there forever. There is only suffering in hell. If any man receives the punishment for his sin, he receives what he deserves. So we need a Savior to save us from this fate. We have good news for you! Saving you is the meaning of Christmas.

This is what the spirit of Christmas really is. It’s doing something nice for your fellow man without expecting anything in return. Not even recognition. If there were more people like this around, the world would be a much better place. And if this spirit would remain with us all throughout the year there is no limit to what humanity could be and do.

Please share if you agree the Christmas spirit should remain with us throughout the year….

BREAKING: Famous Trump Basher Just Did It! This Is SICK On ALL Levels – His Life Is OVER!

Published

on

There’s no shortage of Trump detractors, resistance standers, and people who will risk their entire careers to go against him. It’s become the most popular trend in sports and entertainment at the massive cost of revenue loss and risk to the industry as a whole. It’s clear that those who hate him the most have a lot to hide that they felt safe getting away with while Barack Hussein Obama was in office. Speaking out against Trump without ceasing despite the warnings, never seems to end well when you have skeletons in the closet you’re trying to hide or anything else to lose. One of the president’s famous haters just found out this out the hard way as the latest to bite the dust on his achievements.

Earlier this week, we reported about Gold Medalist skier Lindsey Vonn who pre-empted her competition in the 2018 Olympics with making divisive statements about our president. Rather than unifying the world, which this event is designed to do, she stabbed the Commander-in-Chief in the back with an announcement that she will no be representing him in her sport on the world stage. She was not asked for her opinion on the president or even about politics. The tactless commentary served no other purpose than to stick it to our president where it wasn’t needed. However, Vonn isn’t the only one this week committing catastrophic career suicide.

In addition to trashing Trump, there has been a secondary movement sweeping the nation from the liberal left. It takes a direct aim at holding powerful men accountable for sexual harassment, misconduct, and assault has now named a prominent Liberal serial harasser. It’s now being reported that a famous Trump-basher forced women to have sex with him for employment. Seems like a common workplace practice for liberals who like to talk about Trump’s “grab ’em” comment, which is no comparison to their “rape ’em” routine.

“The left lost another prominent voice tonight,” Conservative commentator Mike Cernovich said, as news came out that PBS late-night talk show “Tavis Smiley” has been suspended from his prominent position after allegations of what’s become the phrase of the decade – “sexual misconduct.”

This is ironic considering this outspoken host made a living hating on our president, famously referring to him as a “racial arsonist.” It’s a clever moniker coming from a man who allegedly forced women to have sex with him for a job. There’s a lot of names he could be given for that.

“Effective today, PBS has indefinitely suspended distribution of ‘Tavis Smiley,’ produced by TS Media, an independent production company,” the public broadcaster said. “PBS engaged an outside law firm to conduct an investigation immediately after learning of troubling allegations regarding Mr. Smiley. This investigation included interviews with witnesses as well as with Mr. Smiley. The inquiry uncovered multiple, credible allegations of conduct that is inconsistent with the values and standards of PBS, and the totality of this information led to today’s decision.”

Tavis Smiley

Variety reports:

Sources close to the production told Variety that PBS hired attorney Sarah Taylor Wirtz of the firm MSK to oversee an investigation into Smiley’s behavior after receiving allegations of misconduct by Smiley, who hosts and produces the talk show. Wirtz declined Variety‘s request for comment. According to sources, MSK took reports from 10 witnesses, a mix of men and women of different races and employment levels in Smiley’s organization, most of them former staffers.

The investigation found credible allegations that Smiley had engaged in sexual relationships with multiple subordinates, sources said. Some witnesses interviewed expressed concern that their employment status was linked to the status of a sexual relationship with Smiley. In general, witnesses described Smiley as creating a verbally abusive and threatening environment that went beyond what could be expected in a typical high-pressure work environment. Several expressed concerns about retaliation.

In an attempt to save some face and whatever is left of his reputation, Smiley stuck it to his accusers by making the false claim that he respects women.

“I have the utmost respect for women and celebrate the courage of those who have come forth to tell their truth. To be clear, I have never groped, coerced, or exposed myself inappropriately to any workplace colleague in my entire broadcast career, covering 6 networks over 30 years,” Smile said in a statement.

The tactic of deflecting their own indiscretions by trashing Trump is not working anymore, accept to prove Trump isn’t actually the problem. It seems that for every right-wing leaning man who is accused of sexual misconduct there are at least 100 liberal men accused of the same, or worse. This whole time all these institutions where being run as brothels and not one person in the outside world even knew. They tell us how to think and what is and isn’t moral while at the same time their stench of immorality is off the charts.

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.
