As you all probably recall from last Football season San Francisco Forty Niner quarterback Colin Kaepernick who only became famous for disrespecting our flag and country by kneeling instead of standing during the National Anthem before each Football game.
He was supposed to be protesting the killing of thugs by police officers. But instead ended up killing whatever career hopes he had left. Today he is a free agent, and no NFL team wants to take him. Boo Hoo!
But it’s now being reported that his jersey has been donated to the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. And worse even, it will be displayed there for all eternity. Most football players spend their whole careers dreaming of haveing their jersey’s displayed at the Football Hall of Fame in Canton Ohio. But as we all know that’s only reserved for good players. Not for lazy bums like Kaepernick who can run, but can’t throw if their lives depended on it. He insists on throwing the ball because he is too damn lazy to learn to run and actually win some games for an organization like the San Francisco Forty Niners who are desperate to regain the prestige they enjoyed in the 80’s with Joe Montana and Steve Young. Both Hall of Fame players.
Now get this, this ungrateful little maggot was born in Milwaukee Wisconsin to a single young white woman. She gave him up as a baby so he could have a better life where he was adopted by a well-off white family from, of all places, good ole California. Come to think of it, maybe my home state of California is the issue here.
I don’t know about you all, but looking at this punk’s family, they look whiter than my hind end before Memorial Day Weekend.
Kaepernick doesn’t deserve to be immortalized anywhere. He is no hero to anyone. In fact, he’s just a coward who tried to make a name for himself after failing to play professional football and blew it because of his laziness.
It should come as no surprise that as plans for the National Museum of African American History and Culture were developed a few years ago, director Lonnie Bunch reached out to Harry Edwards for input.
The eminent sociologist, himself a piece of walking history, helped with a game-changers exhibit that illuminates the impact of sports figures at the Smithsonian’s newest attraction.
Of course, history continues to evolve, which is why Colin Kaepernick – who jarred America’s consciousness last season by first sitting and then taking a knee during the national anthem – is expected to ultimately be featured in a display at the Smithsonian.
Late last year, not long after the museum opened, Edwards donated a collection of items relating to the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback and urged curators to, well, put them on exhibit, ASAP.
“I said, ‘Don’t wait 50 years to try to get some memorabilia and so forth on Kaepernick,’ ” Edwards told USA TODAY Sports. “ ‘Let me give you a game jersey, some shoes, a picture … And it should be put right there alongside Muhammad Ali. He’s this generation’s Ali.’ ”
The Kaepernick items are not currently on display, but the museum’s curator of sports, Damion Thomas, told USA TODAY Sports on Wednesday that he expects new material in their collection will be rotated into exhibits in one to two years.
A half-century since he organized the Olympic Project for Human Rights – which culminated with the iconic image of sprinters Tommie Smith and John Carlos raising black-gloved fists on the victory stand at Mexico City in 1968 to protest inequalities of American life – Edwards, 75, still drips with passion as he reflects on the role and platform of sports as a conduit for social change.
Next week, the seminal book by Edwards first published in 1969, The Revolt of the Black Athlete, which details the Olympic movement, will be re-released (University of Illinois Press) with a new introduction and a tribute to Ali.
Kaepernick, meanwhile, is still a quarterback without a team. He is seemingly paying a price after sparking a movement with his anthem protest of police brutality and other social inequalities, which strikingly, reflect some of the same concerns expressed 50 years ago with the Olympic protests.
Although Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll this week revealed interest in considering Kaepernick for a backup role behind Russell Wilson and Edwards tells USA TODAY Sports that five teams have contacted him about the quarterback – on Tuesday he spoke to an NFL head coach for more than an hour about Kaepernick, and also to the general manager of a team – speculation persists that there are teams that won’t touch Kaepernick because of the political activism he demonstrated for the first time of his career.
Edwards, a consultant to the 49ers who was an adviser to Kaepernick last season but isn’t currently connected to the quarterback, doesn’t go as far as others have in suggesting that Kaepernick has been blackballed by the NFL while lesser-accomplished quarterbacks are signed to backup roles.
But he says, “If they are stupid enough to make a martyr out of Kaep, it’s going to get even more interesting.”
In one regard, it’s a stretch to compare Kaepernick, 29, to Ali, given the late boxer’s prolonged exile stemming from his refusal to register for the military draft during the Vietnam War, and a global human rights track record that spanned decades. Yet Kaepernick, who has continued his support of numerous charitable and community-based programs this offseason, has surely demonstrated the Ali spirit.
And he’s undoubtedly left a footprint on history that will linger.
“Ali created a conversation,” Edwards said. “The conversation was going on at lower frequencies, but when the world champion steps forward and says, ‘No Viet Cong ever called me a (expletive), and we have some issue we need to deal with here, not over there in a war that make no sense,’ it moved the discussion to another level.
“The same thing with Kaepernick. He sparked a national conversation about race.”
Edwards views Kaepernick – who according to an ESPN report in March has decided that he will now stand again for the anthem when he gets another NFL job – and other athletes today who have engaged in social protests as part of a “fourth wave” positioned to spark societal change.
“As validated as past struggles have been,” Edwards said “it is unequivocally certain that 25, 35, 45 years from now, these battles will still be fought, but probably under different ideological auspices by a different generation of athletes. The essential task will be the same: to achieve that more perfect union… using sports not just to leverage that, but to project and demonstrate that. This is why this struggle is so important. It’s a window on who we are as a society.”
Edwards insists that history never repeats itself as the common phrase maintains.
“But what we re-live are the processes, the dynamics,” he said. “You can make your own history, which is why what Kaepernick did was so important.”
And worthy of a place at the Smithsonian.

BREAKING NEWS!!! HE’S FINALLY DEAD!!! FATHER Of GLOBALISM!
SEE YA, SUCKER!!!
One of the biggest threats to America as we know it has come down to one man, who sought out to destroy all that this country holds dear and is true to our constitution. With globalism as the goal, he brought hell into this country with his sinister, divisive, plans, that nearly brought the U.S. down. However, death beat him to that end-goal in what’s likely the perfect twist of fate, before more people lost their own lives to what he had put into motion. This man was not only America’s worst enemy to freedom, he also posed the same threat to other nations who suffered worse under his self-imposed power.
The man behind mass migration and multiculturalism that has completely changed the look of Europe for the worse, which was on track to repeat that process here in America has died. The “ultimate equalizer” does not discriminate based on any amount of money or power, as has now been proven with this sudden fatality. You could call his passing karma or perfect timing as he died before he could destroy the free world like he managed to do in Europe.
Breitbart reports of the shocking, sudden news that has the whole world cheering:
Peter Sutherland, the notorious mass migration and multiculturalism campaigner dubbed the ‘father of globalization’, has died.
Sutherland, 71, was a key player on a host of globalist bodies and multinational corporations, including the European Commission, the World Trade Organization (WTO), and Goldman Sachs International, throughout his life.
As the United Nations Special Representative for Migration and non-executive chairman of Goldman Sachs International in 2012, he infamously remarked that the European Union should “be doing its best to undermine” the sense of national “homogeneity” in Britain and Europe, in order to pave the way for multicultural societies.
“The United States, or Australia and New Zealand, are migrant societies and therefore they accommodate more readily those from other backgrounds than we do ourselves, who still nurse a sense of our homogeneity and difference from others,” he told the House of Lords.
“And that’s precisely what the European Union, in my view, should be doing its best to undermine.”
The Ireland-born globalist argued that the supposed threat of an aging population was the “key argument … for the development of multicultural states”, and that the EU should push mass migration “however difficult it may be to explain this to the citizens”.
Sutherland had previously served on the bloc’s unelected executive as European Commissioner for Competition from 1985 to 1989.
This comes just a week after Sutherland’s globalist, crooked counterpart, George Soros reportedly had a heart attack. While many of us conservative Americans wanted to believe this was the case, there was nothing to confirm he suffered that condition, but there’s also nothing out confirming that he’s in good health. It’s now ironic that that was reported only for Sutherland’s very real and unexpected death to come almost exactly a week later.
Sutherland is a celebrated figure among neoliberals and hardline free traders for his work presiding over the Uruguay Round negotiations of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), the predecessor to the WTO.
This saw tariffs on agriculture, textiles, services, and so on reduced, and new rules on international arbitration and intellectual property introduced.
Corporates and idealistic free marketeers were overjoyed, with figures like the pioneering Brexit campaigner Sir James Goldsmith serving as lonely voices for economic nationalism.
The GATT did increase economic activity worldwide, and the European Commission took the unusual step of personally rebuking Sir James, asserting that “all economic activity is productive” — regardless of the harm caused by the mass outsourcing of industry and manufacturing to sweatshop economies.
The entrepreneur disagreed, complaining that the “politicians and technocrats who govern us … concentrate their political, economic and social programs on initiatives whose principal purpose is to make GNP grow quantitatively, without regard to its impact on society”, and observed that they seemed unable “to distinguish between a nation and a commercial enterprise.”
Soros may have outlived his globalist counterpart as they are literally one in the same when it comes to seriously evil intentions. However, his time is coming too which could be before his globalist dreams of multiculturalism and foreign migration come to fruition. It’s not what’s good for America, and like Sutherland, Soros doesn’t care. Both had other stakes in that destructive game. As long as it benefits them, they don’t care how many countries it destroys. For that reason, karma certainly caught up to Sutherland and will soon be the same for Soros. No money or power can buy his way out of the fate the Grim Reaper is about to bring him.
BREAKING!! ALL CHARGES DROPPED! This Is HUGE!
STUNNING SUDDEN TURN OF EVENTS!
In a shocking, sudden turn of events, one of the country’s most controversial cases that went to court over a year ago has just ended with all charges dropped against this person. Three others involved in this massive news piece have also been exonerated. While there will be much excitement over this stunning decision, there are likely to be riots as well from the opposition. Was justice effective served? It depends on where you stand on the issue of what this “crime” was.
Barack Hussein Obama was this patriot’s biggest nemesis whose orders led to a deadly standoff. With a new president in charge, things have changed dramatically on one of the country’s biggest cases that would have gone much differently had President Donald Trump not been in office.
Fox News reports:
A federal judge dismissed all charged against rancher Cliven Bundy and three others
U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro cited “flagrant prosecutorial misconduct” in her decision to dismiss all charges against rancher Cliven Bundy, two of his sons and another person.
This comes after a standoff two years ago that ended in a court battle that began in October of 2017.
Fox explains the unprecedented move made today that was not expected:
The embarrassment a federal judge dealt to government prosecutors last month in the Cliven Bundy case could be set to resume Monday, at a hearing to determine whether the cattle rancher who became a folk hero long before he beat the feds can be retried.
U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro on Dec. 20 declared a mistrial in the high-profile case. It was only the latest, stunning development in the saga of the Nevada rancher, and served as a repudiation of the federal government. Navarro accused prosecutors of willfully withholding evidence from Bundy’s lawyers, in violation of the federal Brady rule.
The Brady rule, named after the landmark 1963 Supreme Court case known as Brady v. Maryland, holds that failure to disclose such evidence violates a defendant’s right to due process.
“In this case the failures to comply with Brady were exquisite, extraordinary,” said Fox News legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano. “The judge exercised tremendous patience.”
The 71-year-old Bundy’s battle with the federal government eventually led to what became known as the Bundy standoff of 2014. But it began long before that.
In the early 1990s, the U.S. government limited grazing rights on federal lands in order to protect the desert tortoise habitat. In 1993, Bundy, in protest, refused to renew his permit for cattle grazing, and continued grazing his livestock on these public lands. He didn’t recognize the authority of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) over the sovereign state of Nevada.
The federal courts sided with the BLM, and Bundy didn’t seem to have a legal leg to stand on. Nevertheless, the rancher and the government continued this dispute for 20 years, and Bundy ended up owing over $1 million in fees and fines.
Things came to a head in 2014, when officials planned to capture and impound cattle trespassing on government land. Protesters, many armed, tried to block the authorities, which led to a standoff. For a time, they even shut down a portion of I-15, the main interstate highway running through Southern Nevada.
Tensions escalated until officials, fearing for the general safety, announced they would return Bundy’s cattle and suspend the roundup.
Afterward, Bundy continued to graze his cattle and not pay fees. He and his fellow protesters were heroes to some, but criminals to the federal government. Bundy, along with others seen as leaders of the standoff, including sons Ammon and Ryan, were charged with numerous felonies, including conspiracy, assault on a federal officer and using a firearm in a violent crime. They faced many years in prison.
The Bundy case finally began in late October, 2017. But just two months later, it ended with Navarro angry, the feds humiliated and Bundy – at least to his supporters – vindicated.
In fact, Navarro had suspended the trial earlier and warned of a mistrial when prosecutors released information after a discovery deadline. Overall, the government was late in handing over more than 3,300 pages of documents. Further, some defense requests for information that ultimately came to light had been ridiculed by prosecutors as “fantastical” and a “fishing expedition.”
“Either the government lied or [it’s actions were] so grossly negligent as to be tantamount to lying,” Napolitano said. “This happened over and over again.”
Navarro offered a handful of examples of the prosecution’s failure to disclose. One had to do with a video showing government surveillance of the Bundy ranch, as well as government snipers, before the standoff.
“Timing is everything when it comes to these documents,” said Napolitano. “The tapes show that the defendants were telling the truth when they said they brought a militia to the property to protect them from snipers, rather than the government’s version, which is that the snipers came to protect the government agents from the militia.”
Other instances of the government holding back included the failure to produce an internal affairs report on BLM misconduct, which the defense requested and the government denied existed, and threat assessments by federal agents declaring the Bundys were not likely to use violence.
“The court does regrettably believe a mistrial in this case is the most suitable and only remedy,” Navarro said in declaring a mistrial.
Ammon and Ryan Bundy were arrested. LaVoy Finicum was dead. The standoff in Oregon between ranchers and the federal government seemed to be at an end as the leaders of the revolt had either been killed, or were in custody. Four holdouts remained at Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in eastern Oregon, though. Negotiations were underway for their surrender.
The son of famed preacher Billy Graham, Franklin Graham, said he would meet with the four holdouts at the national refuge, presumably to bring the revolt which has captivated Americans nationwide to a peaceful resolution.
Elected officials joined in the fray, telling the holdouts to “stay alive” so their story could be told. While this was happening, Cliven Bundy announced he would come to Oregon to bolster the holdouts stand against the federal government. As the holdouts somehow managed to break an FBI “block” of internet and cell communications, and stream audio, and video of what was happening, Cliven Bundy landed at Portland International Airport, and was immediately surrounded by SWAT teams.
USA Today reports that the elderly rancher was arrested, and booked into Multnomah County Jail.
Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy has been arrested after flying into Portland International Airport. The father of Ammon Bundy, the leader of the occupation at an Oregon wildlife refuge, was detained by the FBI and booked into Multnomah County Jail on Wednesday night, the prison’s records show.
A post on Bundy Ranch’s Facebook page said: “Cliven Bundy just landed in Portland; we are being told by eyes on ground that he was surrounded by SWAT and DETAINED.”
The 74-year-old, who intended to travel to Burns, close to the wildlife refuge, faces federal charges related to a standoff at his ranch in 2014, The Oregonian reported. The newspaper said he faces a charge of conspiracy to interfere with a federal officer and weapons charges.
The elderly Bundy was good friends with Arizona rancher LaVoy Finicum, who was killed by authorities during the Oregon standoff. During the standoff, Finicum told reporters that he just wanted to go home. Finicum was a foster parent to 4, and hosted 50 foster children at his ranch in Arizona.
Finicum explained in a video why he disliked the federal government so much. The Bureau of Land Management stole his water.
The “Oregon Standoff” began because Amanda Marshall, an Obama appointee for U.S. attorney for Oregon, recommended that the government sentence Oregon rancher Dwight Hammond and his son, Steven Hammond as terrorists for a controlled burn on their land which reached federal land.
