Trump takes on the NFL kneelers

Drudge Report has a funny collection of headlines about it:

“President sticks it to sports world…Encourages supporters to leave stadiums…Tells owners to fire players…’Get Son of Bitch Off Field’…Goodell hits back…Players unleash…Union slams…BILLS ’emotional’…Kaepernick mom piles on…LeBron bashes ‘bum’…NAACP rallies behind NBA star…WARRIORS won’t visit White House…TAR HEELS out too…Dem calls for ALL players to kneel.”

What a hoot! They deserve it. Boy, do they deserve it. Turn it off#DumpNFL

UPDATE:  Farewell to the National Football League

MORE:  Sunday, the Pittsburgh Steelers stayed in the locker room during the anthem. All but one: Alejandro Villanueva, an offensive lineman who served three tours in Afghanistan:

Facebook: Don’t mention Niger!

“The word police” isn’t such a joke line anymore.

“The people in charge believe they have found a loophole. They have outsourced policing speech to private companies, who can claim to be enforcing terms of service as private companies. Under the current arrangements, FaceBorg can ban any mention of the country Niger, even though it is perfectly legal to yell ‘Niger!’ in a crowded theater.”

Antifa to the barricades

Berkeley’s new, first woman chancellor decides to have a Free Speech Year. Which is fine, except it will mean bringing in right wingers to give speeches. And then participate in forums.

Something tells me this will not end well.

The WSJ’s Daniel Henninger gets it right: “Stories about Antifa’s organized violence are trickling out now, but there is no conceivable journalistic defense for having waited so long to inform the public about this dangerous movement.”

And they will disrupt the Free Speech Year because they oppose free speech.

UPDATE:  They practiced against the police in Boston’s so-called “peaceful” protest against free speech.

“Terror” in Charlottesville

That’s CNN’s headline, placed strategically over any “reports” on C-ville. Mostly anti-Trump commentary from the usual Dem suspects.

The way the Mediacrats are hammering away at it I begin to think this was a setup all along. The cops withdrawn. The national guard withheld.

Antifas wading in with their ax handle clubs against the outnumbered Unite the Right rally and subsequently vanished from the “reporting.” The source of the terror, but for the lone driver who killed a bystander who, if she had any sense, wouldn’t have been there in the first place.

At least her mother has the good grace to thank the president for condemning bigotry.

“Three dead,” because it makes a better headline. More terror. When two of the three died in a helicopter crash that could have happened anywhere anytime.

And it’s, somehow, all Trump’s fault. Hogwash. Mediacrat stuff and nonsense. Designed to divide. It’s doing that alright.

That Trump Trans Ban

Is lookin’ good. About time they stopped social engineering the military. ‘Course, the Dems flipped out. Which makes it even better:

“Well that didn’t take long after Trump rolled a live grenade into the democratic party bunker. Liberals are howling about Trump’s morning tweet announcing that trannies would not be welcome in the military. It’s only fitting that Nancy Pelosi who has presided over a congressional district located smack dab in the middle of American’s sodomy capital would be among the first to decry the reversal of Barack Obama’s plan to create a safe space for freaks in the armed forces.”

UPDATE: The rule change is going to take some time: “In a letter to the military service chiefs, Gen. Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that the policy on who is allowed to serve will not change until the White House sends the Defense Department a rules change and the secretary of defense issues new guidelines.”

MORE: The real issue here is not social engineering but cost. The Trans or wouldbe-Trans join so the military will pay for their sex change operations and the subsequent hormone treatments. It’s not like they’re patriotic or anything.

The Global Warming Shuck

Thomas Sowell spells it out in this decade-old-but-still-relevant review of a documentary that’s still available on the Internet:

“While the public has been led to believe that ‘all’ the leading scientists buy the global warming hysteria and the political agenda that goes with it, in fact the official reports from the United Nations or the National Academy of Sciences are written by bureaucrats — and then garnished with the names of leading scientists who were ‘consulted,’ but whose contrary conclusions have been ignored.”

Impeachment begins

“Today, Congressman Brad Sherman (D-CA), joined by Congressman Al Green (D-TX), introduced an Article of Impeachment (H. Res. 438) against President Donald J. Trump for High Crimes and Misdemeanors.  The Article is based on Article 1, dealing with “Obstruction of Justice,” which was passed by the Judiciary Committee on a bipartisan vote on July 27, 1974, regarding Richard M. Nixon.  Sherman circulated a draft Article on June 12, 2017, and has been conferring with colleagues and legal experts from around the country since then.”

Despite a month in the planning, Sherman was only able to get one co-sponsor, Alexander “Al” Green, D-Houston, a former NAACP leader, who has been accused of sexual assault and (oh, so forgetful) failing to report $300,000 in campaign contributions.

Or, Trump could fire himself, due to his son’s interest in colluding with the Kremlin. Or something.
