Melania Just Gave HUGE Gift To Americans After Michelle Obama Selfishly Took It From Everyone

Trump is cheering this & so are we!

Published

on

The transfer of power from one party to another with a new President is always a happy day for those who voted for the new guy. All the hopes and dreams of his party are hung on the newly minted President and all those campaign promises that he ran on. A lot of the time though, that stuff never actually happens. In many cases, those empty promises are left unfulfilled and the people just get angry.

That hasn’t been the case with President Trump during his first seven months in office. He has been able to get an incredible amount done toward keeping his campaign promises, not the least of which is cutting spending. Given, the guy that he’s being compared to didn’t give him a whole lot of competition in the getting things done department. However, he’s not letting that slow him down.

The mammoth beast of a budget that the Obama’s had created for White House staff was one of the first things to go. All of the fat was trimmed in short order, and instead of throwing a hissy fit, the way our former first lady probably would have done, his wife Melania leaned into it and took the First Lady’s staff down from 24 (under Michelle) to just 5. That’s about 1/5th of what her predecessor had, and she’s still getting more done. But is the mainstream media praising her? No, they’re too worried about whether she’s smiling enough or if she’s holding the President’s hand at the right time.

Via The American Bacon:

“The liberal media threw a fit earlier this year when Melania Trump decided to stay in Trump Tower in New York City for a few months so that Barron could finish his school year. However, they are now staying silent about the fact that Melania is doing something huge to save American taxpayers’ money, and it puts Michelle Obama to shame.

‘According to a report published by a private organization that tracks government spending, Open the Books reveals that Melania Trump has saved more money with her staff than Michelle Obama did as the first lady. Melania has 19 fewer staffers dedicated to her office than Michelle did in the White House. Mrs. Trump has five staffers versus the 24 staffers who served Michelle Obama,’ reports Inquisitr.

Melania could have 24 staffers, like Michelle, but part of the Trump plan was to streamline the White House staff, which under the Obamas had become a bloated bureaucracy. Michelle was such a prima donna that she employed numerous staffers, including schedulers, directors, planners, associates, social and press secretaries, and other assistants.

So, how much is Melania saving tax-payers? Approximately $5.1 million dollars a year, but that’s not all. Overall, the Trump White House is saving a total of $22 million dollars. ‘President Trump’s ‘leaner White House payroll,’ as reported by Forbes, is saving taxpayers $22 million overall. This information is verified by the fact that the current salaries for White House employees was made public on Friday. Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump, and Jared Kushner are taking a total salary of zero dollars,’ according to Inquisitr.

Since Melania Trump has lived the life of a very rich woman in her adult years, especially after marrying Donald Trump, common sense would suggest that she’d be the one who would go in for the lavish spending, but that’s just not so. On the other hand, Michelle Obama’s previous home was in Chicago, and while it was a beautiful house in an upscale neighborhood, it was far from the digs of the Oprah and Richard Branson set, who were two people the Obamas love to hobnob with on their lavish vacations. While one would think, given their histories, Michelle would expect fewer luxuries, her 8 years as the first lady proved that’s not the case, either.

We have to remember that Melania Trump grew up in a communist country. She grew up poor and watched her parents be very frugal with what little money they earned. ‘Melania grew up with humble roots in Sevnica, Slovenia, where she was known as Melanija Knavs and lived in Communist-style apartment housing that overlooked a river and smoking factory chimneys,’ Associated Press reports.

Now, you won’t be hearing from the mainstream media about Melania giving back five million dollars to taxpayers each year after Michelle had been spending on her personal friends, hiring them as her staff during her eight years as the first lady. Even if Melania only stays in the White House for four years, that’s 20 million dollars she’s saving the American taxpayers.

It just goes to show you the character of Melania. No one would have questioned if she, like Michelle, hired 24 staffers. But, she knows Americans are hurting economically and that we elected her husband to help bring wealth and jobs back to America.”

When Michelle Obama said “we go high” we might have given her too much credit assuming she wasn’t talking about spending money. It turns out that she and her husband mostly like to get their “high” spending our money on ridiculous things, making themselves look good, and it didn’t take much to outshine them.

Thankfully, the new First Lady has some class and she is taking care to be judicious with the taxpayer money that she’s been entrusted with. Just think, if Melania spends the same amount of time in the White Hosue that Michelle did, we will be saving over 40million just in salaries, that’s not even counting all the other extravagant expenses. That plus the fact that we get to look at her instead of the lady she replaced makes it sound like a pretty good deal to me.

NFL Commissioner In FULL-PANIC, Asks One Final HUGE Favor From Every American

Trump is pissed!

Published

on

Looks like the powers that are in the NFL are starting to get desperate!

Since NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the rest of the weak clowns who run the NFL are starting to see the writing on the wall, he is now resorting to begging for us fans to come back and watch their little protests. In a statement today he said that the NFL actively has about 12 players who are protesting during the national anthem and that they are working towards making it zero. He added that the NFL wants their players to stand and that they are currently working with them to encourage every player to stand. Good luck with that Roger.

What Goodell and the rest of the inept people who run the NFL don’t seem to understand is what American Pride is. We, as a nation, love football, but we love our nation and the flag which represents her even more. We common folk watch these games and buy their overpriced Chinese made merchandise because we like the escape from reality. But once the NFL turned into a political platform for protesting, us Americans said enough. And we won’t be going back anytime soon.

Fortune Reports:

The NFL Can’t Keep TV Afloat Anymore
Football ratings show no signs of reviving.

The NFL has long been the cornerstone of the U.S. pay television market. Viewers’ loyalty to their favorite teams and the tradition of watching games on Sunday afternoons (and Monday nights) provided stability and certainty for stakeholders across the TV ecosystem.

Mass-market advertisers could plan fall marketing campaigns knowing that NFL games would reach just about everyone. Broadcasters and cable channels (such as ESPN) could enter into long-term deals for broadcast rights knowing that people would “always” want to watch football, creating an anchor tenant for the rest of their programming lineup. Last but not least, pay TV providers have long used their exclusive distribution rights to NFL games as both a carrot (to attract new subscribers as DirecTV did with its wildly successful Sunday Ticket package in the 1990s) and a stick (to keep existing households from canceling service regardless of the cost or frustration many folks have with their pay TV provider).

The question today, however, is what if this entire edifice is just a house of cards? NFL ratings have fallen significantly across all providers over the past seasons and so far 2017 is not looking any better. The only positive element to that decline may be that fewer people have to watch the sad sight of the Los Angeles Rams playing in front of a mostly empty stadium at the Coliseum. There are endless theories about the decline, from the rising popularity of video games to player safety to (ridiculously) the Colin Kaepernick situation.

My own view is that declining NFL ratings are the logical outgrowth of the decline in legacy linear television overall. This larger decline has been going on for over a decade now; is rooted in a fundamental shift to anytime, anywhere viewing on broadband devices; and affects all legacy TV programming to one degree or another. In short, contrary to the hopes (or delusions) of some in the TV industry, the NFL is not immune to these larger societal and viewing dynamics.

The more important question is: What happens to the pay TV edifice when the NFL cornerstone isn’t there anymore? The answers are multiple, but two are particularly important.

First, the link between household growth and pay TV growth has been irreparably broken. The creation of a new household—most commonly by a young adult leaving home—used to almost automatically result in an additional pay TV household. That is simply no longer the case. Millions of American households are living happily without pay TV and one of the reasons is that Monday Night Football and other NFL games are simply no longer must-see TV. Put another way, U.S. legacy pay TV households have peaked and will only decline going forward.

The second effect of declining NFL ratings is the slow collapse of the supersize pay TV bundle itself. If the NFL isn’t must-have content, then nothing is must-have content. The result is a mushrooming of skinny bundles from providers as varied as Sling TV, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, YouTube TV, and Hulu’s Live TV.

These services vary pretty dramatically, seemingly agreeing only on three things: people want cheaper pay TV offerings; what people want varies (including access to the NFL); and half a loaf (in terms of monthly subscription fees) is a whole lot better than none.

What Goodell should have done is put a stop to this malarky when Colin Kaepernick first decided, with the encouragement from his Islamic girlfriend, that it was a great idea to kneel during the national anthem in order to deflect from the fact that he’s just a poor player and was on the cusp of being cut from the Forty Niner’s organization. That was the moment to stop it, now it’s too late.

What the NFL should do now is concentrate on maybe trying to come back once all these ungrateful and anti-American players have retired and are long gone from the sport. And next time around maybe research who you hire. Maybe it should take more than just the ability to toss around a ball to get you a multi-million dollar contract.

48Hrs After Saints Refused To Honor Cop Murdered By Thug, Look What Just Happened To Entire Team

Say hello to Karma!

Published

on

The NFL anthem protest that started out as more of a glorified publicity stunt by one player has taken some dark turns over the past year. While the 49ers player who started this mess, Colin Kaepernick, remains a “free agent” (aka, unemployed) many of his gainfully employed friends have taken up the torch.

The question that many have for the protesters is twofold; firstly, is what they’re protesting really worth protesting at all, and secondly, is this the way to do it.

The first question has a pretty clear answer for most of us since the alleged police brutality that they’re supposed to be protesting was centered around an event that went to trial and the officer was found not guilty. The second one is also simple to put to bed; if you want to protest something, don’t make it the thing that allows you to protest. That’s just ignorant on a multiplicity of levels.

If they want change, they need a clear cause they’re supporting, and they need to protest in a way that’s not going to infuriate most of the nation. That is a concept that seems to be lost on the New Orleans Saints, considering the stunt that they pulled at Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions. Independent Journal Review reported on their continued contempt for not only America but also one uniformed officer who was being honored after being killed in the line of duty just two days before:

“Before the kickoff of the New Orleans Saints vs. the Detroit Lions game, and even before the presentation of the American flag, several Saints players took a knee. But their timing is what is really turning heads.

The players took a knee during a moment of silence for a murdered police officer named Marcus McNeil, who was a father of two and was slain while on duty just two days prior to the game:

The team might have thought that they were making a political statement that would resonate with their fans, but they were wrong. Their ill-timed kneeling and obvious disrespect for an officer who died to protect their city was met with boos, shouts, and outrage that overtook what should have been a quiet and respectful tribute.

McNeil was not only a respected officer of the law but a beloved person in every aspect of his life. His nephew described his uncle’s time as a police officer, stating that he “loved every minute” of his time and that “it was almost like he felt like a superhero” and that “he wanted to go out and save the city. He truly loved his job.”

He was hailed as a great cop by his partner, Denzel Million, who posted this to Facebook after hearing of McNeil’s untimely death:

“my partner Marcus McNeil for two years, this isn’t real life, I thank you for all the memories we’ve accumulated. In the academy we stood next to each other in formation, in class I sat behind you, after graduation we was assigned to the 7th District. Worked hand in hand on the day watch together, then was moved to power watch as partners. Our latest assignment and current assignment was 7th District Task Force Detectives as partners.

I’m going to miss you Dud.

Stay Frosty. Watch over me MilkDud.
We’ll take it from here.

The “McMillon” Show. Forever1762.”

my partner Marcus McNeil for two years, this isn’t real life, I thank you for all the memories we’ve accumulated. In the…

Posted by Denzel Millon on Friday, October 13, 2017

Fans reacted on Twitter with pure rage. This tweet, and many others like it, show how the people of New Orleans, McNeil died to protect, feel about the entitled players protesting his tribute:

The people of New Orleans were so outraged by the players, that their team was finally forced to issue a statement, apologizing for their ridiculous protest. 710 Keel reported that within twenty-four hours, the Saints scrambled to say that their protest was a “misunderstanding”.

“It took about 24 hours, but the New Orleans Saints have come up with an official explanation for a number of players failing to stand as the team and fans paid tribute to a slain Crescent City police officer. Saints Coach Sean Payton has termed the incident “a misunderstanding.”

The team was honoring fallen Officer Marcus McNeil, who was shot and killed in the line of duty on Friday. But a number of players, planning to protest by taking a knee during the playing of the National Anthem, knelt during the team’s planned pre-Anthem salute to McNeil. The kneeling players were loudly booed by the fans in the Mercedes Benz Superdome, as the entire stadium stood to remember McNeil and his three years of service to the city.”

There seems to be a sweeping misunderstanding all through the NFL. It’s a misunderstanding of how freedom is paid for, a misunderstanding of how to respectfully object to something and a misunderstanding of who funds their paychecks. They also misunderstand how much we care about them.

There’s no such thing as an irreplaceable person, and the NFL was only as valuable to Americans as long as it entertained us. And guess what, we are not entertained by racism, disrespect or contempt for authority and sacrifice. It’s this writers opinion that players like these are going to start having more and more misunderstandings as their new contracts get “lost in the mail” if they continue on their current course. And if that’s the case it will be because America said “good riddance”, and made sure we were understood.

Racist LeBron James Just INFURIATED Fans With Disgusting Thing He Brought On The Court For First Game

Time for a new boycott!

Published

on

And yet another professional sports organization is now intent on committing suicide!

The NBA’s opening basketball game between the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night has many fans wondering how the league will handle the ongoing protests from ungrateful players over what they believe is police brutality and racial injustice in our great nation.

At the Tuesday night game, during the national anthem, the Cavaliers linked arms, while the Celtics bowed their heads. Although no one had the guts to kneel after an NBA leaked memo from last month had instructed players and coaches to stand during the patriotic moment.

Although there really was no actual disrespect shown for our flag yesterday, the overpaid ignoramus Lebron James had to put in his two cents in by wearing a pair of shoes with a ridiculous message on it. Equality!

Are you freaking kidding us. You are a multi-millionaire who plays in a league where 78 percent of players are black, 17 percent are white, 4 percent are Latinos, and 1 percent are Asian, while the black population in the US is only 13%? And you have the galls to complain about so-called “equality?” What the hell is wrong with you people?

Cavaliers And LeBron James Sign Multi-Year Contract

THE 2016 NBA FINALS MVP RE-SIGNS WITH CLEVELAND AFTER LEADING TEAM TO ITS FIRST EVER NBA TITLE

CLEVELAND, OH – The 2016 NBA Champion Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James have signed a new multi-year contract, General Manager David Griffin announced today from Cleveland Clinic Courts.

“We are very fortunate to have a championship group together,” said Griffin. “One that has grown organically to trust, and sacrifice for one another – on and off the floor. At the core of that group is LeBron. His leadership, passion and tireless commitment are the hallmarks of our success and have inspired our entire franchise. His connection and dedication to his community and this fan base are absolute. We share his determination to win at the highest level and can’t wait to get back to work, together to defend our title.”

James, a four-time MVP, 12-time NBA All-Star and three-time NBA champion, appeared in 76 games (all starts) for the Cavaliers in 2015-16, averaging an Eastern Conference-best 25.3 points (fifth in NBA) on .520 shooting from the field (14th in NBA), 7.4 rebounds, 6.8 assists (ninth in NBA) and 1.4 steals in 35.6 minutes per game. It was James’ 12th consecutive season averaging at least 25.0 points, which is a new NBA record (previous was 11 straight seasons by Karl Malone from 1987-88 to 1997-98 and Jerry West from 1961-62 to 1971-72). James, the only player in 2015-16 to shoot over .500 from the field with averages of at least 25.0 points, 7.0 rebounds and 6.0 assists, was an NBA All-Star starter for the 12th straight season and All-NBA First Team selection for the ninth year in a row. He earned the Kia NBA Eastern Conference Player of the Month a league-best three times in 2015-16 (February, March and April), as well as the Player of the Week award an NBA-high tying five times (weeks ending Nov. 22, Jan. 10, March 6, March 27 and April 3).

James started in all 21 games during the Cavs’ championship run in the 2016 Playoffs, recording 13 double-doubles (two triple-doubles) and averaging 26.3 points, 9.5 rebounds, 7.6 assists, a postseason career-high 2.3 steals and 1.3 blocks in 39.1 minutes per game. In the 2016 NBA Finals win against Golden State, James, who was named Finals MVP, helped the Cavaliers become the first team in league history to overcome a 3-1 Finals deficit while leading the series in points (208, 29.7), rebounds (79, 11.3), assists (62, 8.9), steals (18, 2.6) and blocks (16, 2.3). He was the first player in NBA Playoff history to lead a series in every major statistical category. James is just the fifth NBA player to have three Finals MVPs, joining Michael Jordan (six), Shaquille O’Neal (three), Tim Duncan (three) and Magic Johnson (three).

The 6-8 forward scored in double figures in all 76 regular season games in 2015-16, increasing his consecutive double-digit scoring streak to 717 (third-longest streak in NBA history). In addition to scoring in double figures every game he appeared in, James had 63 games of at least 20 points and 18 games of at least 30 points. He also registered 28 double-doubles and three triple-doubles. After concluding his 13th NBA season with 26,833 career points, James climbed all the way up to No. 11 on the NBA’s all-time scoring list, passing Oscar Robertson (26,710), Dominique Wilkins (26,668), Tim Duncan (26,496), John Havlicek (26,395), Paul Pierce (26,316), Kevin Garnett (26,071), Alex English (25,613), Reggie Miller (25,279) and Jerry West (25,192) this past season. He also moved up to 18th place in assists (6,815), joining Oscar Robertson (9,887) as the only players in NBA history to rank in the Top 25 in both points and assists.

The Akron, Ohio native remains the franchise’s all-time regular season leader in points scored (18,914), scoring average (27.3), field goals made (6,776), three-pointers made (978), free throws made (4,384), assists (4,835) and steals (1,168), while ranking third in rebounds (4,842) and fourth in blocks (580). Over his 13-year NBA career, James has appeared in 987 regular season games (986 starts) with averages of 27.2 points, 7.2 rebounds, 6.9 assists, 1.7 steals and 39.0 minutes, while shooting .498 from the floor, .340 from three-point range and .744 from the foul line. For his postseason career, James has appeared in 199 contests (all starts) with averages of 28.0 points, 8.8 rebounds, 6.8 assists and 1.8 steals in 42.1 minutes per game.

I’m guessing these fat cat players really don’t understand where the money comes from. If you upset your fans, and your sponsors, the money dries up. Don’t take my word for it, just ask your comrades in the NFL. Last year the NFL decided to let a player kneel because he was losing the spotlight when he started to play poorly and then it spiraled to the mess we have today.

Their tv ratings are down, their sponsor money is down and their game attendance is way down. I predict the same will be happening to the NBA if this continues since most working class folk don’t care to be lectured about “equality” from a man who made his fortune just by tossing a damn ball around.

Please share if you agree the NBA needs to ban unapproved logos….
