NBA Anthem Singer Goes FULL RACIST MODE On The Court Against Trump After He Launches Petition To Stop Them

Time to send them back where they came from!

Published

on

And once again we see no amount of money or fame can buy you class.

While the NBA has made it abundantly clear that players kneeling or displaying any other forms of activism during the signing of our national anthem will be followed by swift disciplined, sadly it seems that policy does not apply to those invited to sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” prior to the games.

Friday night, Roc Nation artist, Justine Skye, (yeah never heard of her either), took a knee after singing the national anthem at the Brooklyn Nets home opener at The Barclays Center. Skye actually knelt while delivering the final note of the anthem. To which, as seen below, Skye was greeted by what sounded like a mix of both cheers and boos from the attending crowd.

So here is my question. Why doesn’t the NBA stipulate in whatever contract these so-called artists have to sign in order to sing the national anthem that they, in fact, need to stand for the duration of the time they are in the arena? And that if they don’t then they will be slapped with a huge fine or lawsuit? The NBA has done an awesome job at controlling its spoiled overpaid players, but they can’t control the temporary “hired help?” Really?

SBNation Reports:

The NBA actually has a rule against kneeling for the national anthem

Will the league enforce it if a player tests the rule? It did two decades ago, but it’s a different time now.

Dozens of NFL players knelt during the national anthem last Sunday, continuing Colin Kaepernick’s protest against racial injustice.

If you’re wondering if we might see a similar form of expression in the NBA, you might be surprised that there’s actually a rule against it.

Officially, the rule is this:

2) Players, coaches, and trainers are to stand and line up in a dignified posture along the sidelines or on the foul line during the playing of the National Anthem.
You can see it in the league’s official rulebook under the “Player/Team Conduct and Dress” section, below a rule requiring players to be “uniformly dressed” and above one requiring coaches to wear a sports coat.

The NBA did not reply to our request for comment.

However, on Friday, the NBA issued a memo to teams reminding them of the rule that requires players and coaches to stand for the national anthem.

Adam Silver confirmed to reporters that the league expects players to stand for the national anthem, citing the rule. He did not answer whether players would be penalized if the rule was broken.

Asked if a player will be penalized if he doesn’t stand for the anthem, Adam Silver says such a situation would be dealt with if it arises.

NBA Players Association Executive Director Michele Roberts also suggested the players would address a kneeling situation with the league only should it happen.

“I haven’t discussed it with Adam because I haven’t needed to,” Roberts told Yahoo! Sports’ Chris Mannix. “I was not the executive director when the [Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf situation] happened, but I’m aware of the rule and the players are aware of the rule. We’ll see. This is a different commissioner. This is a different time.

“I disagree with the view that taking a knee is disrespectful,” Roberts continued. “But there is a rule. I don’t know that we’ll see because I don’t know if we’ll have a player do that. We’ve not yet had a player do that. But if it fact and if in fact the league responds by deciding to impose some penalty, then we will, as we’ve done for every player that wants to challenge the discipline, will support and defend that player.”

This weekend, we saw the NBA become embroiled in the national debate.
After Stephen Curry said he would not visit the White House to celebrate the team’s championship, President Donald Trump tweeted that he was disinvited. LeBron James then called Trump a “bum,” many NBA players expressed support for Curry, and the Warriors reacted in their own ways on Saturday.

On Saturday, Oakland Athletics rookie catcher Bruce Maxwell became the first MLB player to kneel during the anthem. (It’s worth repeating that he was not protesting the anthem itself.) We’ve seen protests from WNBA players and teams, most recently the L.A. Sparks before Game 1 of the WNBA Finals. We’ve seen protests from stars on the U.S. women’s national soccer team and at many collegiate and amateur sporting leagues.

But with the NBA season only a month away, there may be players who feel they should join the protest, too.

If any players do, it won’t be the first time the NBA’s national anthem rule has been tested.

The NBA had an anthem “controversy” two decades ago
Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf was a wiry 6’1 point guard with a lightning-quick jump shot. He would be the league’s all-time leading free-throw shooter by percentage, except he’s 39 attempts short of officially qualifying. During the 1995-96 season with the Denver Nuggets, he chose to sit or remain in the locker room during the national anthem.

No one noticed until a local reporter mentioned it in March. Once he did, many were outraged.

NBA commissioner David Stern suspended Abdul-Rauf for one game and negotiated a compromise: Abdul-Rauf would stand for the anthem, but he could do so with his eyes closed and head bowed in prayer. Abdul-Rauf was a devout Muslim and his religion was a major reason why he chose to originally begin his silent protest, so he complied with Stern’s request.

But Abdul-Rauf was traded to the Kings at the end of the season, lost sponsorships, and then lost his starting spot on his new team. When his contract expired in 1998, Abdul-Rauf was only 29, but no team showed interest in signing him. He was essentially blacklisted from the league, playing only 41 games three seasons later before officially retiring.

In 2017, things have changed.
The league has many outspoken advocates for social justice and has worked with players to help amplify those voices. In early September, Silver and Roberts co-signed a letter to players encouraging them to express their views on social issues affecting their communities.

But no one knows exactly how the NBA would respond if one of its players took his message to the court itself. We can’t know how the league will treat one of its players kneeling during the anthem until it happens.

Technically, kneeling during the anthem is not allowed by the NBA. We’ll see if the league enforces the rule should the situation arise, as it did two decades ago.

Although we all know very well how NBA players feel about the nation that has made them filthy rich, at least they won’t be disrespecting our flag. Makes you really stop and wonder why the NFL refuses to take a step like this.

Liberals have been after the NFL for years, to the point that they have even tried to ban it because of concussions. But we all know their real hate against football was that they considered it to be “Too Masculine,” and that doesn’t fit their agenda. So they finally found a way to kill it, with the help of the players who are too stupid to figure out they are killing off their own livelihood.

Notice how all that talk of concessions has now disappeared? Convenient, don’t you think?

Please share if you want the NBA to vet who they get to sing the national anthem more thoroughly….

BREAKING NEWS!!! IED TERROR ATTACK ON US SOIL!!! HUGE EXPLOSION!

Published

on

Over the last several years, terror attacks have increased due to the insane liberal policies of allowing Muslim refugees and illegal immigrants to flood our borders unvetted and unchecked. Just last year we saw numerous cases of violence perpetrated by radical Islamists that stole the lives of innocent Americans and yet the left still fights for these violent offenders to stay within our borders. Now, just mere weeks into the New Year, our country has been hit by another possible terror attack which makes one wonder if this is just the beginning of more violence in on American soil.

There was a time in America that we all felt safe walking down the streets, going to the airport, or even shopping at the local mall. However, all that changed after Barack Obama got into office and he changed our landscape by allowing Muslim terrorists to come into our country under the guise of humanitarian efforts. Now, these people have been walking among us as we wonder if they will strike again. So, just a few weeks into January, that question has been answered after an improvised explosive device was set off in a Lake Wales, Florida Mall earlier this evening.

The attack happened at the Eagle Ridge Mall near the mall entrance of JC Penny, and thankfully no one was hurt during this attack.

Here is more from 10 News:

The Lake Wales Fire Department responded to a call about a fire around 5:22 p.m. Sunday evening.

The fire broke out at the Eagle Ridge Mall located in Lake Wales, and the fire department discovered smoke coming from a corridor next to the mall entrance of JCPenny.

The department personnel discovered an improvised explosive device that was set off in the mall corridor. 

More improvised explosive devices were found in a backpack nearby.

Thankfully, there have been no reported injuries and the roof sustained some damage. 

The mall has been evacuated and the department has launched a criminal investigation along with Lake Wales Police Department, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, the State Fire Marshall, and the Hillsborough County Bomb Squad. 

Authorities continue to search for a person of interest who has been described as an onlooker as a heavy-built, white, middle-aged man wearing a gray shirt and a gray hat. 

Stay with 10News for further details on this developing situation. 

As the report stated, the police are looking for a middle age white male who is heavier set seen in the area at the time of the explosion. What this man has to do with the crime is anyone’s guess, but considering the string of attacks we have seen over the last several months, it could have ties to Muslim extremism or just someone who has gone off the deep end.

For instance, we saw Sayfullo Saipov commit an atrocious act on Halloween when he rented a U-Hauk truck and ran down dozens of people before being arrested.

Via Daily Mail:

According to the criminal complaint, Saipov chose the attack date to target Halloween crowds.

During the last few weeks, Saipov searched the internet for information on Halloween in New York City and rented a truck to practice turns.

He chose a route along a lower Manhattan highway and initially hoped to continue to hit more pedestrians on the Brooklyn Bridge, the complaint said.

Then earlier in October, Stephen Paddock opened fire on concert goer’s from his hotel room killing hundreds of people and injuring dozens more.

Hopefully, the police will be able to catch who did this quickly before any more people are harmed by future attacks. However, this is to be expected when you leave our borders open and fan the flames of division in our country with violent liberal rhetoric. It would not be a surprise to learn that the person who committed this crime is either a member of Antifa, ISIS sympathizer, or a liberal follower who is upset over President Trump’s decision not to grant amnesty to millions of Dreamers. Either way, it is time that there are harsher consequences doled out to those who commit these sorts of crimes or we will only see them continue.

BREAKING: As Military Forced To Work For FREE From Shutdown, Look What Greedy Illegals Are Doing NOW!

Published

on

Although Illegal alien criminals had over 30 years to apply for legal status, they have for months lobbied Democrats in order to get them to block funding for the government unless the bill granting them citizenship rights was also added to the 2018 budget.

On Friday Democrats answered that call and decided to show America their true colors by putting illegal alien criminals ahead of law-abiding American citizens and our military servicemen and women. By mounting a filibuster of a four-week spending bill, denying the government the cash it needs to remain open and our military from getting what it needs to continue the awesome service they provide for us the American people.

And in the wake of this asinine Democrat shutdown, illegal aliens ignorantly cheered at the fact they now believe they are being taken seriously.

The Washington Times Reports:

Illegal immigrants cheer as Dreamer shutdown hits

Democrats called it the Trump shutdown. Republicans labeled it the Schumer shutdown. But in reality, it was the Dreamer shutdown.

Illegal immigrant Dreamers had for months begged Democrats to block funding for the government unless the bill granted them citizenship rights. On Friday Democrats heeded that call, mounting a filibuster of a four-week spending bill, denying the government the cash it needs to remain open.

In the wake of the shutdown Dreamers cheered, saying they were finally being taken seriously.

“We know that the public is on our side,” Cata Santiago, a Dreamer, said in a statement. “We are calling for the immigrant community and our allies to take to the streets immediately to demand that Congress pass legislation guaranteeing permanent protection for immigrant youth NOW.”

Dozens of Dreamers were in the Senate’s viewing galleries Friday night watching as the drama unfolded beneath them. Police were gathered in force just outside the galleries with piles of plastic handcuffs, prepared for the kinds of protests and mass arrests Dreamers have fostered around the Capitol in recent weeks.

There were no disturbances in the galleries, but there was plenty of confusion among senators, who seemed stunned that they actually careened into a shutdown despite Democrats and Republicans saying they didn’t want one.

“Almost everybody on both sides doesn’t understand how we ended up here,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

He laid blame squarely at the feet of the Dreamer debate, saying Democrats held the entire process — a two-year budget, money for the Children’s Health Insurance Program and other needs — hostage to the immigration talks.

Democrats suggested there were other sticking points, but acknowledged immigration and the fate of the Dreamers was the chief hurdle. But they said the hold-up was President Trump’s demands for major changes in immigration policy, which the White House said had to be passed along with any action on Dreamers.

“What happened to President Trump who asked us to come up with a deal? He backed off at the first sign of pressure,” Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer said.

The Dreamers and their immigrant-rights allies now find themselves in the same position as conservative and tea party groups, who pressured Republicans into an Obamacare-fueled shutdown in 2013.

That shutdown lasted 16 days, and Republicans relented in the end, walking away with no substantive gains.

Dreamers are likely to emerge from this shutdown in better shape, with most lawmakers saying they do want to find a solution for them.

Early Saturday morning, after the votes, Dreamers stood outside the Capitol in small groups. Some seemed stunned by the turn of events, while others danced to music playing from their iPhones.

For now the Dreamers await along with the rest of the country to see the outcome — though they were emboldened by their show of political power.

For now, though, the Dreamers await along with the rest of the country — though they were emboldened by the show of political power.

“Our fight has never been about a government shutdown; it’s about a policy breakthrough. It’s not about political advantage; it’s about people’s lives,” said Frank Sharry, executive director of America’s Voice, a pro-immigration lobby group. “Victory is close. We won’t stop until we achieve it.”

Deemed the most sympathetic figures in the immigration debate, most Dreamers were brought to the U.S. by parents with little say in the decision, and many don’t have substantive memories of their home countries.

They began “coming out” as illegal immigrants in the last decade, and quickly became a political force, earning invitations to the State of the Union address, meeting at the White House with President Barack Obama and addressing the Democratic National Convention.

They came close to a solution in 2010, when legislation known as the Dream Act — which they took their name from — cleared the House and came close to passing the Senate, falling in a GOP-led filibuster.

Their power has grown in the years since, and they felt emboldened last year to demand a shutdown fight. Democrats balked the first few times, but finally agreed to a self-imposed Jan. 19 deadline for action.

Yet the actual firm deadline for Dreamers is March 5, which is when Mr. Trump’s phaseout of the Obama-era DACA deportation amnesty, protecting some 690,000 Dreamers, begins to expire. More than 100 Dreamers are losing status each day right now, but those are ones who didn’t manage to renew their status by Homeland Security’s Oct. 5 deadline.

Still, Sen. Richard Durbin, an Illinois Democrat who has led the fight on their behalf for years, said it was a travesty for Congress to have not solved their situation.

“To say we’re in no hurry — well, we may not be as senators and congressmen, but these young people are in a hurry to find out whether or not they have a life. That’s what it comes down to,” Mr. Durbin said.

Republicans countered that they, too, wanted to grant long-term certainty to Dreamers, but didn’t want a new amnesty to invite another wave of illegal immigration. They demanded more border security and other policy changes be tied to any Dreamer legislation.

“We cannot deal with the issue of individuals in our country illegally … and ignore how it happened in the first place,” said Sen. James Lankford, Oklahoma Republican.

Yes, folks, we have now reached the point where the current Democrat Party has shut down the government over a bunch of illegal aliens. They have clearly chosen to side with illegals who have had over decades to become legalized citizens over people like you and me and our military.

Never has this happened in our nation’s history, to have elected public servants whom we pay for choose criminals over law abiding American citizens.

Apparently, the clowns in the Democrat Party didn’t get the memo as to why We The People elected President Donald Trump in 2016. We are sick and tired of being put in third place after any illegal alien or so-called “Dreamer” who decides to break into our nation from whatever cesspool they came from only because “They” decided they can have a better life here.

Being an American citizen and living in the US isn’t a world right, it’s a privilege, and one that you don’t decide, we the American people decide if we want you here.

Please share if you agree the Democrat Party is anti-American…

BREAKING! Trump Just Made His BIGGEST Move Yet!! Muslims Are PISSED!

Published

on

President Donald Trump has proven over and over again that he says what he means and means what he says.  Case in point when he said that he planned to cut off aid to Palestinian terrorists he meant every word and then some. President Trump has no intention of hand-holding and coddling potential terrorists while they terrorize Israel – our largest ally in the Middle East.

Now it has come time for America to put her money where her mouth is and President Trump has proven he is a man of action making the announcement that he intends to withhold $45 million in aid to the Palestinians as well as an additional “$65 million it had planned to pay the U.N. agency that serves the Palestinians,” according to Reuters.  The announcement came just days after Washington withheld a separate $65 million, arguing that the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees needed a “fundamental re-examination.”

According to Jihad Watch – This is not about cutting food money, contrary to the lies of Husam Zumlot and others. The UNRWA has multiple links to jihad terror. It is a viciously corrupt and dishonest organization, bent on enabling the jihad against Israel and willing to lie brazenly in the process. Every penny of U.S. aid should be withheld from the UNRWA, permanently.

Reuters reports –
“At this time, we will not be providing that, but that does not mean – I want to make it clear – that does not mean that it will not be provided in the future,” Nauert said.

She repeated the U.S. view that UNRWA needs reform, saying there are a lot more refugees in the program than previously, and that “money coming in from other countries needs to increase as well to continue paying for all those refugees.”

“So we’re asking countries to do more,” Nauert said. “Fundamentally, we just don’t believe that we have to be the chief donor to every organization around the world.”

Despite the decision on the food aid pledge, she said: “We are the most generous country on the planet. We continue to be.”

President Trump took to social media as he often does to state in a post on January 2 that the United States gives the Palestinians hundreds of millions of dollars a year, “but get no appreciation or respect” and he is absolutely correct in his assessment.

Just as a little reminder in just 2015 ALONE the Obama administration gave away hard-earned American taxpayer dollars to the tune of a whopping $380 million of which a cool $20 million went toward “Gaza Recovery & Reconstruction,” according to its own financial records.

Yet we have the likes of Palestinian and Proud Linda Sarour over here in the US trying to tell us how things need to be done at our expense on our dime. No respect at all.  When is it time that they hate us for free?

It’s not only Pakistan that we pay billions of dollars to for nothing, but also many other countries, and others. As an example, we pay the Palestinians HUNDRED OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS a year and get no appreciation or respect. They don’t even want to negotiate a long overdue…

The Jerusalem Post notes that the Palestinian Authority pays terrorists who are sentenced to 20 years or more in prison – in other words, those who committed more severe crimes, and likely were involved in killing Israelis – five times that each month for the rest of their lives. Terrorists who are Israeli citizens receive a $145 bonus, which, when added to the amount PA pays for the most severe crimes, comes to over $2,900 a month, more than the average Israeli income of around $2,700. There are also increases in pay for being married and for each child a terrorist has.

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said, “The PA pays over a billion shekels a year to terrorists and their families, thus encouraging and perpetuating terrorism. The minute the amount of the payment is decided according to the severity of the crime and the length of the sentence – in other words, whoever murders and is sentenced to life in prison gets much more – that is funding terrorist attacks against Israeli citizens. There is nothing that better illustrates the PA’s support for terrorism. We must stop this,” he said.

A “terrorist” is defined in the bill as anyone who committed a security offense, whether or not he or she was convicted by a court or is still living.

This organization is essentially financing and sanctioning genocide and attempting to use American taxpayer dollars to do it.  Regarding the $65 million originally planned for UNRWA, Nauert demanded the agency be reformed and further called on other countries to help out as well.

“So we’re asking countries to do more,” she said. “Fundamentally, we just don’t believe that we have to be the chief donor to every organization around the world.”

Interestingly, other countries that were previously hesitant about pitching in have already begun sending money to UNRWA because of the Trump administration’s willingness to stand up for itself.

Arutz Sheva revealed in conversations this week – “Belgium on Wednesday pledged to allocate $23 million to UNRWA, the UN agency for ‘Palestinian refugees’, following the U.S. decision to cut by half the funding it provides to the agency.”

That said, some maintain that both the Palestinian Authority and UNRWA should be permanently defunded. UNRWA has previously been caught promoting antisemitism to impressionable children, while the Palestinians have likewise been busted engaging in every form of terrorism imaginable against the Israeli people. Everything from Holocaust denial to preaching that Jews are lower than dogs and rats are taught to these children.
