  1. A well-known Black Canadian hockey player says he respects the American flag too much to kneel during the playing of the American National Anthem. He plays for an American National Hockey League team!

    After Saints Sit During Anthem, Louisiana Lawmaker Takes The One Thing They Love Most

    The New Orleans Saints were among the teams which protested Trump’s remarks on Sunday ahead of their game against the Panthers. “I would say, personally, I am disappointed in the comments that were made,” said Saints coach Sean Payton. “I think we need a little bit more wisdom in that office. That’s being a little blunt, but that’s how I feel. I want that guy to be one of the smarter guys in the room, and it seems like every time he’s opening his mouth, it’s something that is dividing our country and not pulling us together,” he added.
    According to The Advocate, the Saints and Pelicans organizations released a statement roughly half an hour before the start of Sunday’s game, saying that Trump’s comments were “disappointing and inappropriate.” Then, tackle Terron Armstead remained in the locker room while the National Anthem was being played as a form of protest. Meanwhile, 14 of his teammates protested on the field.

    Come Monday morning, Louisiana State Rep. Kenny Havard (R-St. Francisville) announced that he wants to cut millions of state tax dollars, exemptions, and credits allocated to the Saints, the NFL, and any of those groups’ associated facilities that receive funding. “The very reason (the Saints) have the privilege and opportunity to play professional football while being paid millions is because someone in uniform died protecting their right to do so,” Havard said. “It is a disgrace to the men and women of this nation and state who have sacrificed so much,” he continued.

    “Disrespecting our national anthem and flag in the name of social injustice is the highest form of hypocrisy,” added Havard. “Our free society made possible by our fighting men and women has made available free education, free lunch, housing, and free healthcare and is now being considered socially unjust,” he said. “It is time the taxpayers quit subsidizing protest on big boy playgrounds. I believe in the right to protest but, not at a taxpayer-subsidized sporting event. Do it on your own time. There are plenty of disabled children, elderly and veterans in this state that would appreciate the money.”

    According to a 2015 Forbes report, Saints and Pelicans owner Tom Benson was “set to rake in an estimated $392 million from state subsidies through 2025.” The report said that during the Mercedes-Benz Superdome lease “the state will pay Benson at least $198 million in increased revenue from the Superdome, $142 million in rental payments on property Benson owns, $10 million in bonuses for bringing the Super Bowl to New Orleans and $2.6 million in tax breaks. Benson will get another $40 million from private rent payments to a tower he bought as part of the deal.”

    Rep. Havard is exactly right. The Saints and their billionaire owner are perhaps the least deserving people of the millions of tax dollars being thrown at them each year. That money could be better put towards programs for veterans, the people who risked their lives so those self-entitled athletes could sit on their behinds instead of honoring the country which has afforded them such opportunity. If these football players want to protest, fine. However, they absolutely should not be paid to do so.

      Pam our President is brilliant! He let these MORONS make complete fools out of themselves. This is why he never backed Healthcare the way he is going all in on Tax Reform. People used the excuse that he didn’t understand it. It was the opposite! He knew damn well that he had this atomic bomb ready to be used at the appropriate time.

      The other brilliant aspect of this is that the Forgotten Men and Women will benefit. Not the Medicaid recipients that get a majority of their healthcare subsidiezed. Those people were Barry’s concern. Our President is taking care of the millions and millions of Americans that live in non expansion states (19 total) and those that make to much to afford the subsidy in the expansion states.

      The other great thing is that the numbers I described above dwarfs Barry’s Americans. Meaning anyone that tries to fight this will feel the wrath of the Monster once and for all!

      The man we call President is truly a gift from our Father in Heaven!

      I hate Rand Paul but the bastard is smart in terms of finding workarounds. This interview is worth a watch for the first 6 minutes and 15 seconds to get a better sense of WH our Lion 🦁 is about to do to Obamacare!

    Sundance – can we have a daily thread on Sykes for Senate, pretty please? One caveat – lots of pictures of him 😉

    Sorry… not what I meant….. not sure how that slipped into my post at all…


    Actually, I was wondering if we could maybe do a weekly “Highlight/Profile” of America First candidates for the upcoming 2018 elections as they pop up. That way, we can maybe do our research ahead of time before the BB crew jump in… (each thread could have a pic of Sykes… no no… not what I meant…. )

              Conspiracy theories already? LOL!

              He and his fiancee met at Harvard and after graduation moved to Missouri. I’m not taking sides here, but this is from the “Chanel” portion of the website:

              As a Harvard trained International Relations graduate, some might think Chanel comes from a surprising place to be such a dedicated part of the Trump Army but she has been aboard the Trump Train from its first week and spent 20-hour days during the entire 2016 New Hampshire primary on the ground for the Trump campaign, working the New Hampshire winter, doing her part.

              In January 2016, she and Courtland and her own family joined the Trump family and celebrants for the New Hampshire Primary victory gathering at week’s end. “We all knew that night at the victory celebration in New Hampshire that this was absolutely going all the way—that we had chosen well.”

              While producing illustrations for President Trump and family, one of Chanel’s illustrations for Donald Trump Jr. was used by him to help win and celebrate the media-historic battle that Don Jr. waged publicly to defeat Rachel Maddow and MSNBC when they tried to smear the Trumps with a fake news “tax expose” using fake documents.

              When Don Jr. turned their “fake news” utterly against them, the debacle stained MSNBC and Rachel Maddow forever and ended the phony tax debate categorically by showing the President paid over 28 million dollars in taxes in a single year and that the actual frauds were those of Rachel Maddow and MSNBC.

              Don Jr. cited Chanel’s work as extraordinary and as a proof of how such articulations on social media could be used to defeat the left, fake news and Washington’s socialist swamp.

        Why should twitter be any different from Facebook, Google and lame stream media? Censorship is the name of the game. Be happy you can still talk without being hauled off to jail for “hate speech” like in Europe. We have Constitutional rights, baby! They hate us for that. President Trump has the right idea: Expose them, mock them and starve them. And, if they’re still there after that, then just go around them.

    Tucker Carlson FOX opening tonight.
    Key hard core data studies completed on the cost and effects of illegal immigration and chain migration.

    1) Cost of illegal immigration including all add on costs = $135 a year.
    2) Total annual college tuition = $70 B a year.
    Conclusion = Free college for all and roads and infrastructure projects if illegal immigration costs removed.

    We certainly do not want these illegal costs to go up much more or many budgets will be broken.

    Chain migration.
    Mexico brings an average of 6 more over for each legal green card person.
    700,000 Dreamers = over 3,000,000 total coming in.
    repeat for each case of amnesty proposed.

    Stopping all future chain migration is the key to reduce the immigration negative effects.

    This Kansas City article gives some background on Courtland Sykes.

    On the downside some of this makes me wonder if he moved to Missouri just to take on McCaskill. Set up a company (but no clients yet). He admires both Bannon and Trump because they are anti globalist. He met Bannon once (is he a Bannon recruit?).

    The Dems seem happy because they think Sykes will weaken Hawley, who I assume is the main Republican running. Don’t know if that’s good or bad as I am not from MO and unfamiliar with the Senate race.

    On the positive he joined the military after 9/11 and served 8 years, says he advised a Republican politician for a while in military affairs, has been pursuing advanced education after military, and is married to Chanel Rion, a well known pro Trump artist.

One was when some of the soldiers got on the transport planes to go home and the obvious friendships. One soldier was later interviewed and when he was asked by the stewardess he could have anything he wanted…all he wanted was “a glass of coke with shaved ice and a pack of gum.” Tonight’s show (episode 9) also totally reamed Jane Fonda and John Kerry 😄

    One wonders if the Left realizes, or will, if ever – that running this Burns Vietnam thing now, maybe wasn’t such a good idea.

    For many of them, particularly the friends of Zero, that was their acme. They used media to rip the nation asunder with protest and violence, effectively changing the subject, and taking down not one, but two presidents, after they got us into it to begin with. People watch it, and remember (if they’re old enough,) then look at what BLM and Antifa are doing, and realize it’s the same thing, and in some cases, the same people.

    Nixon was reelected 512-16. People knew he had inherited the mess, and he ended it. Parallels. An abundance of evidence that Communists were behind the unrest. Media portrayal of the depth of the divisions were grossly inaccurate. Lies from Democrat administrations compounded the problems. Not that Nixon was a saint, but he did play hardball to end the thing.

    The Left hasn’t learned anything, in all this time. That 8-track is gonna eat the tape this time, too.
