Trump Just Made BIG Announcement About Who Gets His $100K Quarterly Salary & Pisses Libs Off

Published

on

President Trump is once again not cooperating with the liberals and their plan to make him look like a dirty, money hungry monster. Apparently, our highly successful Commander in Chief got to where he is by someone other than stinginess and money grubbing, as the left would have you believe because he’s once again giving money away. This is making the DNC’s Scrooge persona that they’re trying to pin on him slide off like butter on a hot biscuit, and we couldn’t be more happy about it.

The president told us after being elected that he planned to donate his presidential salary to a charity, and his daughter Ivanka, made a similar pledge after she was hired for an advisory position in the West Wing. There was still some hope on the part of the liberals that he would just forget (because that’s what most liberals do when it comes to promises, they “forget”), but wouldn’t you know it, that darn capitalist remembered, and the money is headed out the door as soon as it comes across the President’s desk.

This time around, he’s donating his gains to a part of the government that everyone really wanted to believe that he hated; education. The quarter’s earnings of $100k will be going, in full, to the United States Department of Education. While this should make everyone jump for joy (you know, anything for the kids and all that) of course not everyone is happy. The President seems to just be seeing that as a side perk though.

Via Young Cons:

“President Donald Trump always said he didn’t run for president for the money and now he is once again proving it. Today the White House announced that he is donating the next $100,000 of his salary to the U.S. Department of [sic] Education.

The announcement was made by White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders during Wednesday’s daily press briefing. As she announced the donation television screens showed a photo of a $100,000 check Trump signed over to the DOE.

Interestingly, earlier this year Trump proposed slashing the DOE’s budget by $9.2 billion, or a 14 percent reduction.

This isn’t the first donation of his salary, either.

In July the president announced that $400,000 of his salary was going to preservation efforts aimed at saving and maintaining the Civil War Antietam battlefield in Maryland.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke said that there was also $185,000 in matching funds that were donated.

‘As both the Secretary of the Interior and a military veteran, I’m deeply honored and humbled to deliver the donation to Antietam National Battlefield on behalf of President Trump,’ Mr. Zinke said. ‘The president’s donation will allow generations of Americans to learn about our history and heritage on this sacred site.’

Trump said it on the campaign trail, but early in his presidency Trump reiterated that he would not take a salary as president.”

CBS News reported on the PResident’s intention to donate his salary, shortly after his election in November of last year:

It wasn’t long after Donald Trump’s victory this week that questions began to circulate about what would happen to his business empire and income when the business mogul becomes president.

During his first television interview as president-elect on Sunday, Trump told 60 Minutes’ Lesley Stahl that he wouldn’t take a salary as president.

“Well, I’ve never commented on this, but the answer is no,” Trump said. “I think I have to by law take $1, so I’ll take $1 a year. But it’s a — I don’t even know what it is.”

Stahl reminded the president-elect, “[That’s] $400,000 you’re giving up.”

Again, Trump answered, “No, I’m not gonna take the salary. I’m not taking it.”

From the very beginning, Trump has promised that he’d set businesses concerns aside if he was elected. In fact, he told “Face The Nation” moderator John Dickerson last October that he’s been “phasing out” his role throughout his campaign.

“Look, I would cut all ties…. I wouldn’t care about it,” Trump told Dickerson. “My kids will run it. I wouldn’t want to expand very much. It wouldn’t matter to me. I have a chance at making America great again; that’s the whole focus.”

He promised last year that he would refuse to take a salary as president, too.

During a campaign appearance in Rochester, New Hampshire, last October, the billionaire told a crowd he would not be accepting the $400,000 annual salary if he became president.

“The first thing I’m going to do is tell you that if I’m elected president, I’m accepting no salary, OK?” Trump said. “That’s not a big deal for me.”

Days later, Trump held a Twitter Q&A, encouraging the American people to ask him questions using the hashtag #AskTrump.

One user asked, “Will you forgo the presidential salary if elected?”

Trump confirmed for a second time that he would refuse to take a salary.

“As far as the salary is concerned — I won’t take even $1,” said Trump. ‘I am totally giving up my salary if I become president.’

According to Forbes’ latest investigation released in September, the business magazine estimates Trump’s wealth is around $3.7 billion — down $800 million from a year ago.

Once again, here’s the President doing things that might lead the rational to think that he cares about the people of this country. It’s almost like his campaign slogan of making America great again was a real sentiment, and not just something that he said to get votes.

Well, you’re welcome to make up your own mind as to the real intentions of the President, but if you were waiting for him to put his money where his mouth is, the wait is over. The President is officially in a class potentially only two other Presidents who donated their salary to charity. Sorry liberals, if you were waiting to pounce on him, you’ll have to wait a bit longer; turns out he follows through on his promises.

Entitled NBA Star Steph Curry Just ENDED His Career With HUGE ‘F You’ He Sent To White Man At Game

Bye bye, racist!

Published

on

Rich, elitist, entitled sports players who toss a ball around for a living need to stick together.

Although Golden State Warrior’s, or “Dubs” (for those Bay Area people who struggle with the English language), star Steph Curry is a Carolina Panthers fan, he made his support known for has-been, unemployed 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick during the 49er’s vs Panther’s game.

Curry posted an Instagram story during the game with the caption, “#FreeKaep.”

Last season, Colin Kaepernick, with the advice of his girlfriend who has deep ties to Islam, refused to stand for the national anthem as a show of a silent protest against police brutality, racial injustice, and inequality. Because we all know a contract of $120 million isn’t enough to heal the “Inequality” he feels!

Although he’s said multiple times that he would stand for the anthem if added to a roster this season, he’s still yet to have been picked up by a team. Leading some to speculate that he’s been blackballed by NFL teams because of the negative attention he drew to himself last season. Of course, any of us who followed football know very well that the real cause for his unemployment is that he just isn’t a good player.

The NY Times Reports:

Maybe Colin Kaepernick Is Just Not That Good

Whether or not Colin Kaepernick plays another down in the N.F.L., I’m going to say that he can achieve more off a football field than he — or anyone else in the sport — can achieve on one.

Football, in the larger scheme of things, is not that important. Kaepernick, meanwhile, has a message about crucial aspects of our frayed but hopefully repairable nation that will continue to grow. If he has the devotion to work for change, he could outclass Tom Brady, or any player you might name, as someone who did something that truly matters for future generations.

But I thought it might be useful to at least consider something. The conventional wisdom is that Kaepernick, who opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers after last season and has yet to be signed by another team, does not have an N.F.L. job on account of his politics. In protest against racism and police brutality, he won’t stand for the national anthem, and he’s increasingly outspoken on social issues. Earlier this summer in a tweet he likened the police to members of the fugitive slave patrol. N.F.L. owners, the thinking goes, must be racists who don’t like his politics — or cynical pragmatists who don’t like that their racist fans don’t like his politics.

What seems to me more problematic than Kaepernick’s not having a job is the general unwillingness to consider that this situation might be justified on the merits, given Kaepernick’s current attributes, or lack thereof, as a quarterback, rather than assuming, as part of a kneejerk gospel of victimhood, that persecution must be the cause.

It’s not hard to make a statistical case for why Kaepernick is not playing now. He threw for a mere 187 yards a game last season, which was good enough for 30th (in a league of 32 teams). For his career, he has completed fewer than 60 percent of his passes. Last season, 24 passers completed more than 60 percent. Kaepernick, at 59.2 percent, was ranked 26th. If you’re below 60 percent, you’re a fringe guy.

 More damning, Kaepernick was not asked to make difficult throws; he’s not a Matt Ryan-type quarterback, slinging the ball far down the field on deep crosses or challenging out routes. In the current iteration of the N.F.L., offense rules the day, with quarterbacks tasked to put up crooked numbers on the scoreboard. Kaepernick’s job was to be a game manager, making the easiest, high-percentage throws. And he still struggled. What are you supposed to do with a guy like this? What can he do for you? Can he help you win?

If Kaepernick deserves a spot in the league, it’s only as a backup quarterback. And he will eventually get a job as one, I bet, once quarterbacks start getting hurt. But the fact that he doesn’t have a job right now isn’t shocking, and it doesn’t have to be because N.F.L. owners are racists who are blackballing him.

The older I get, the less I care about football, but I do care about merit, and things being seen for what they are. “Life is,” as Dostoyevsky wrote, and it is our job to figure out what the “is” is. I believe that’s one of the core responsibilities of being human.

We don’t do this enough anymore. We don’t ask the tough questions. We seek to align ourselves with what I think of as the “control voice” — whatever piped-in monotone is dictating a given narrative at the moment. It’s easy to feel good about yourself when you’re patting yourself on the back for your inability to never fail to take the moral high ground, which everyone who agrees with you reinforces and enables, one Facebook “like” at a time. But there is nothing real about that.

It doesn’t matter that Kaepernick doesn’t have a job; it matters that so few people even wonder if there might be a non-disgraceful explanation. We have become the anti-meritocracy. We resent those who outperform us, outwork us, outproduce us. And the person who has been perceived to have been slighted? He is whom we now adore.

I’d like to see Kaepernick get a job, because I find him interesting, and I’d like to see if he can solve the flaws in his game as he nears 30. But I’d like even more to see all of us challenge ourselves more, in ways that are more important to the world, and to ourselves, than whether or not someone gets a job taking an ill-advised sack, or throwing the ball out of bounds so he can live to play another down.

Now what makes this all even more ironic is what happened during the Warriors game against the Memphis Grizzlies. It’s clear the Warriors aren’t having a stellar season this year. In fact, they are downright starting to go the way of Kaepernick. To the point that two of their best ball tossers lost their cool yesterday and showed the world who they really are…

Two, spoiled rich, entitled racists! 

Curry was ejected for throwing his mouthpiece at a white referee, and Durant was ejected right after for talking smack to him. Durant then flipped off fans who were booing them & waving goodbye in a sarcastic manner.

Watch.

Both players were rightfully ejected from the game. They should be ejected from the NBA for at least the remainder of the season as examples.

Please share if you agree Curry and Durant should be ejected for the rest of the season for unsportsmanlike conduct….

Former Air Force One Veteran Turned Referee Given BRUTAL Punishment After What He Did When Fans DISRESPECTED Anthem

This has gone on enough!

Published

on

A former Air Force One veteran who later became a referee was just given a brutal punishment for what he did at a volleyball game. A player on one of the volleyball teams took a knee during the playing of the National Anthem referee, 67-year-old Jim Saddler, walked out. This happened just as the volleyball for North Central High School’s girl’s varsity team was about to begin in Indiana.

At first, he saw some fans in the stands taking a knee and that irritated him a little bit. Then he saw the player down on one knee and that threw him over the edge and he went AWOL from his position as the referee. He was not about to stand there and watch disrespectful teenagers participate in protests that mean absolutely nothing but disrespect for the veterans, the flag, and the country.

Saddler, whose background lingers around being conservative, had enough. He walked out right on the spot.

He later found out that his actions of leaving the game came with a consequence which was a suspension from his duty as referee. He was suspended for 18 months. Many people believe the suspension is too long considering the circumstances and the amount of divisiveness perpetrated by leftists in America. A man had an honest reaction to a disrespectful moment and now he’s out of a job for a year and a half. If the system suspends him for exercising his rights, then should the same system ban taking a knee for the National Anthem? If no one takes a knee, then no one else gets mad and walks out, right?

Saddler felt disrespected for the time that he put in serving Presidents and there’s no repercussion on the other end. It’s just him that’s punished.

Via Daily Mail:

But he couldn’t help but feel passionate about the matter, as a retired Presidential Flight Attendant on Air Force One, adding: ‘In the Air Force, you have a duty, and you do it.’ After he received his 18-month suspension, Saddler has had time to reflect on his actions.

After having some time to reflect, Saddler later stated that he would not ever walk out of a game again. He mentioned that his emotions got the best of him and he basically could not stand there and watch his country be treated that way.

‘After I thought about it, I would never ever do that again. I would never break a contract,’ he told the newspaper.
‘What they did just upset me so badly that I just could not stay there,’ he added.

Based on his admittance of wrongdoing and admission of guilt, then shouldn’t he be given a slight break if he has a good history of punctuality and always being there?

‘(But) I know it’s her constitutional right to do what she wants to do, and it wasn’t fair to the other girls who were standing and respecting the flag.

‘After I thought about it, you know … sometimes it takes you a little time to sit down and think about stuff and what you did.’

North Central athletic director, Paul Loggan, said the sports officiate has worked the high school’s football, volleyball and softball games for several years without any issues.

‘He’s a very well-respected official and man,’ Loggan said.

While speaking of the incident earlier this month, he suggested Saddler acted ‘very professional’ and did not lash out on anyone inside the gymnasium at the time.

Regardless, his actions stirred up controversy. Soon after the incident, he received a letter from IHSAA Commissioner Bobby Cox – who informed him of his temporary suspension.

When Saddler arranged a meeting to the discuss the matter into further detail, Cox said his breach of contract left him no other choice.

Since Saddler walked out while on the job, the suspension was a fair decision. However, the length of the suspension is quite long. Since Saddler missed only that one game, has a great history and is well respected, then perhaps the commission can lower his suspension to be only a few games or only one game? NFL athletes who are involved in violent crimes sometimes only get suspended for a few games, so walking out of a volleyball game shouldn’t warrant 18 months off the job.

It’s great that Saddler recognizes the rights for people to protest, but the people protesting need to realize that taking a knee is not working. Taking a knee is disrespectful. Taking a knee has only received negative attention and it’s causing problems in the country. Taking a knee is not the way to get a message across if the people protesting want others to listen.

If Saddler was involved in a violent crime like an NFL athlete, then would his suspension be lower or higher?

The best way to fix the problem with the people who take a knee is to require people to ban all forms of protest at sporting events. It’s sporting event, not a political function or rally. There’s nothing to protest at sporting events except for the overpriced food, drinks, and expensive parking.

If people want to take a knee during sports, then do it in front of the people selling beer for $10 a cup. Cheaper beer is a cause worth protesting for!

Racist NFL Kneelers Didnt Know What’s On Every Single One Of Their Helmets – Now They’re PISSED!

Published

on

It has been over a year since Colin Kaepernick knelt during the national anthem under the guise of protesting police brutality and racial inequality in America. That action sparked immediate controversy which only grew as more players joined Kaepernick’s protest that just drew the ire of NFL fans across the country.

Fans were angered to witness professional athletes spitting in the face of veterans and in the same breath claim that their intention was not meant to be disrespectful. Sadly, the protests only continued even after Kaepernick became unemployed, after not getting signed to a new team in the post-season.

To make matters worse, these unpatriotic demonstrations have spread making their way into the NBA as well as the NHL as more players join in on these race-baiting antics.

However, these players in their hopes to appear as martyrs missed one small detail on their helmets that negates their nasty demonstration and they are pissed after finding it.

The national anthem protests have taken on a life of their own after a year of players disrespecting our veterans and flag. These multi-millionaire players in an attempt to come across as relevant have latched on to liberal talking points of systematic racism in America. Instead of these players researching these claims made by race-baiting leftists they just believe the lies and began a protest that is riddled with half-truths and misconceptions.

But, instead of the protests just being confined to kneeling on the sidelines it has grown into something much more. For instance, instead of the players simply kneeling which is bad enough many players have opted to raise a single fist in the air.

One player that has adopted this sick action is Seattle Seahawks’s, Michael Bennett who after tackling a player will raise the black power fist in celebration, and it doesn’t stop there.

According to Amanda Shea who previously reported on Freedom Daily, Bennet is now claiming that he is a “slave” of the NFL and even went on to cite the Dred Scott case.

“It reminded me of the Dred Scott case: You’re property, so you don’t have the ability to be a person first,” Bennett told reporters Wednesday, according to Breitbart. “I think that in this generation, I think that sends the wrong message to young kids and young people all across the world that your employer doesn’t see you as a human being, they see you as a piece of property, and if that’s the case, then I don’t get it. I just don’t get why you don’t see us as human beings first.”

With all that being said here is where the irony begins for these racist players on the field.

Every time one of these race-baiting players takes a knee to disrespect our flag and the sacrifice our veterans have made they should look at the back of their helmet. On every helmet that these players wear is a small American flag attached to it which pretty cancels out their disgusting protest.

Let’s start with the founder of this nasty demonstration, shall we?

Then there is  Baltimore Ravens’ Terrell Suggs, who followed in Kaepernick’s footsteps shortly after the protest began, but look at what is on his helmet too. 

And, of course, let us not forget Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Mike Evans another vocal national anthem protester. 

You remember when Denver Bronco players Von Miller, Demaryius Thomas, and others joined in on their massive anthem protest? Well, maybe they should have checked their helmets before protesting the national anthem and our flag.

 

Then just a few weeks ago, five Los Angeles Chargers players opted to kneel during the anthem as well, but they missed that small detail too.

Here is more from ABC 7:

At least five Los Angeles Chargers players kneeled or sat on the bench during the playing of the national anthem before the team’s home game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

The actions came as players around the league reacted with defiance to President Donald Trump’s comments about kneeling during the anthem. Trump said that owners should fire any players who refuse to stand for the anthem.

Other Chargers stood and linked arms in a show of solidarity during the anthem, as a few also raised one fist.

About 10 Chiefs players also sat during the anthem.

Also, a few weeks ago the entire Tennessee Titans team stayed in the locker room in protest, but those helmets were left behind and guess what’s on them?

But, here is one of the best images of the day. As you see here the New Orleans Saints are sitting during the national anthem, but their helmets say something entirely different.

Listen, if these players want to protest on their off time then, by all means, have at it. They can kneel on the side of the road if they want, but leave the fans and the game out of it. If these players feel like they are not being treated fairly by the league, then they are free to quit and be on their merry way, but they won’t since they love the attention.

The longer Americans continue to boycott the NFL and not be a part of their racist protests the quicker it will end once and for all.
