Veteran Group Just Made Ultimate Response And Slams NFL Protesters!

Donald Trump have really outraged his haters after the comments he made about National Football. The president blasted the NFL players who have kneeled in protest of the national anthem. Now, as usual, the mainstream media works hard to slam the President and to present him in bad light. But President Trump always have his defenders to back him up.

Two of the largest veterans organizations in the country are joining Trump. They have also blasted NFL players who kneel during the national anthem.

According to the national commander of the American Legion, Denise Rohan, the professional athletes and others who do not respect the national anthem are “misguided and ungrateful.”

“Having a right to do something does not make it the right thing to do. There are many ways to protest, but the national anthem should be our moment to stand together as one UNITED States of America,” Rohan says in a statement.

On Sunday, numerous football players kneeled during the anthem. Also most members of the Pittsburgh Steelers remained inside the locker room during the anthem. But Steelers offensive lineman, Alejandro Villanueva, who is also an Army veteran, did not follow the example of his coplayers. Villanueva came outside to stand during the anthem.

Next day, Rohan praised Villanueva’s act. “We salute Army Ranger Alejandro Villanueva, who stood alone respecting the flag as his teammates stayed in their locker room,” said the national commander of the American Legion.

The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) likewise commended Villanueva for “showing the rest of his team and the league what true mettle is.”

“I stand for our flag and anthem, and I kneel for our fallen. That’s what patriots do. We rally around the flag of our country, not use it and our Constitution as both shield and sword,” VFW national commander Keith Harman, alsa a Vietnam veteran, said in a statement.

Billion Dollar Federal Tax Subsidies To The NFL Has Been EXPOSED!

The NFL is starting to see what big trouble they are actually in. The protests have taken a huge chunk of revenue from the league as more and more fans decide that it is not worth the trouble. There is simply no excuse for what is going on right now. Fans have been clear that they do not agree with what is currently going on. And yet, the NFL continues to side with the players.

But as it turns out, the NFL might be in more trouble than we had originally thought. It has been reported that the NFL receives around $1 billion in subsidies every single year. As a non-profit organization, they are able to get this money. Most people might think that this is a business. But this could not be further from the truth.

The IRS tax law clearly explains that it is definitely okay for the NFL to encourage fans to vote, their behavior cannot turn into favoring or encouraging their fan base to go against or for a specific candidate at any point. That means that what they are currently doing is against the law.

It is doubtful that anything will come out of this, but it does prove the point that they are in the wrong here. The IRS website explains “… voter education or registration activities with evidence of bias that (a) would favor one candidate over another; (b) oppose a candidate in some manner; or (c) have the effect of favoring a candidate or group of candidates, will constitute prohibited participation or intervention.”

Sunday in American host, Tom Basile, talked about what is going on with the NFL.

“Roger Goodell and team owners are playing with fire. In an effort to pander to their own players’ politics, they’re insulting a broad cross-section of Americans who are sick of the politicization of everything. But perhaps more damaging for the NFL is that fact that they risk exposing a tax scheme that will further enrage fans and potentially jeopardize their entire business model. The last thing Goodell wants is people talking about the NFL’s tax-exempt status and taxpayer subsidies.”

What do you think about the subsidies that the NFL receives?

MLK’s Daughter Makes HUGE Statement About NFL Protesters Who Kneel During Anthem

Obviously this NFL thing has gotten way out of control. Who would have thought that something like a Trump rally could have caused this much drama throughout the country. His comments were about Colin Kaepernick and his decision to kneel during the national anthem. People took this as a personal attack against everyone that has feelings one way or another.

Now Martin Luther King Jr.’s daughter has gotten into the mix. It seems as though she wants to come out as a supporter of those who are kneeling for the anthem. Here is the thing. The problem is not with their beliefs. Sure, there are things wrong in our country that we need to take a look at.

The problem that the vast majority of people have is the fact that they are disrespecting the country that has given them so much success. They are not only disrespecting the country and the flag. No. They are disrespecting everyone who has fought for our freedoms as Americans.

This is what is making people so angry. It seems as though they do not even think about how this could be perceived outside of the NFL. Fans are not happy and we are seeing that in the ratings. Not the mention the fact that the stadiums are far from being filled.

There is a big difference with what is going on here. In MLK’s days, black people were killed on the street. He wanted the same rights as white people. And he got that dream. The NFL players that we see today are millionaires with every privilege in the book. These are not the people that they need to be trying to help.

If they want to help black people in the US they need to see where the problems are and go from there. But kneeling during the national anthem at an NFL game is going to do nothing to change anything. Until they realize that, we are in for a long season.

Players need to start showing a little bit more respect to the country that has given them so much.

Crowd Erupts in Boos as Jerry Jones and Entire Dallas Cowboys Team Kneel Live on Monday Night Football

Jerry Jones and the entire Cowboys team took a knee prior to the national anthem. The crowd did not like it one bit.

BREAKING: Jerry Jones And The Cowboys Took A Knee!

As the focus of NFL player protests turned to the national primetime platform of ESPN’s “Monday Night Football,” the Dallas Cowboys football team took a knee moments before the singing of the National Anthem at the Arizona Cardinals’ stadium in Glendale, Ariz.

ESPN reported that the Cowboys and Cardinals had discussed engaging in a joint gesture on the field but ultimately opted against it.

The Cowboys’ assembly included coaches and owner Jerry Jones. There was some question in sports circles on Monday about how the franchise known as “America’s Team” would react to the snowballing protest of discrimination and inequality. There were audible boos coming from the stands as players kneeled.

As ESPN’s cameras panned the lineup of both teams, a mixture of distress, determination and sweat was visible on the faces of many players.

Anthony Weiner Sentenced To Prison!

The disgraced ex-congressman broke down crying as he was sentenced to 21 months in prison Monday for convincing a high school student to undress and touch herself on Skype in 2016.

“I was a very sick man for a long time” Anthony Weiner told the judge in asking for leniency. “I have a disease but I have no excuse.”

“This was a serious crime. It’s a serious crime that deserves serious punishment”Manhattan federal Judge Denise Cote said as the convicted “sext” fiend dropped his head into his hand and wept.

The disgraced Democrat’s voice began cracking moments after he started reading a statement in which he invoked his soon-to-be ex-wife, Huma Abedin, and their young son. Abedin, a former aide to Hillary Clinton, was not in the courtroom, but Weiner’s parents and brother sat in the first row. The sexting case played a role in the 2016 presidential election. Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, who has filed for divorce, was a top aide to Hillary Clinton.

In addition to his prison stint, Weiner was sentenced to pay a $10,000 fine for his crime, participate in sex offender outpatient treatment and spend three years on supervised release once his sentence is up. He will have to surrender to his designated facility by Nov. 6 — his lawyer put in a request for Schuylkill Federal Correctional Facility in Pennsylvania, or another low-security prison near New York.

Anthony Weiner argued that his online dalliance with the 15-year-old was due to his sick obsession with sexting strangers and addiction — rather than an obsession with underage girls — and claimed he had hit “rock bottom” and is now in recovery.

However, Weiner has quite the history with sexual behavior on social media.

In 2011, while serving in Congress, he accidentally tweeted to the world a photo of his boxer-clad erection. He initially claimed he was hacked before admitting he was trying to send it to a woman who was not his wife. It was the start of a spiraling scandal that tanked his political career and often brought a sense of deja vu to the news.

He sent sexual messages to women, despite promising his family and his supporters that he would stop. Last year, he even sent salacious images of himself to a woman while his young son was next to him in bed — and visible in the shot.

Weiner was first elected to Congress in 1998 and easily won re-election in his Brooklyn district six more times. His star rose in the Democratic Party in 2010 after a short but dramatic speech before Congress blasting Republicans for voting against an aid bill for first-responders to the 9/11 terror attacks.

Tragic Announcement About John McCain

Sen. John McCain gave new insight into his grim struggle with an aggressive form of brain cancer in an interview that aired Sunday on CBS’s “60 Minutes”.

Days after speaking out against another Republican-sponsored health care bill, Sen. John McCain detailed his health and battle with brain cancer in a CBS interview.

“They said that it’s very serious, that the prognosis is very, very serious,” the 81-year-old McCain, R-Ariz., said during the segment titled ‘The Fighter’, shortly after adding: “Some say 3 percent, some say 14 percent. You know, it’s a very poor prognosis. So I just said, ‘I understand. Now we’re gonna do what we can, get the best doctors we can find and do the best we can.”

McCain, a former naval aviator who was shot down over North Vietnam in 1967 and held as a prisoner of war until 1973, also revealed that he wants his memorial service held at his alma mater in Annapolis, Md. “I want, when I leave, that the ceremony is at the Naval Academy” he said. “And we just have a couple of people that stand up and say, ‘This guy, he served his country.”

This isn’t the first time McCain has faced a life-threatening situation. The senator has stared down death before and won. He survived torture and five and a half years in solitary confinement during his time as a prisoner of war in Vietnam from 1967 to 1973. He was diagnosed with melanoma — the deadliest form of skin cancer — in 2000. And he has been in two plane crashes.

Back in July, McCain’s deciding “no” vote on a previous Republican sponsored health care bill came in Washington 11 days after his brain surgery. He explained that experience in the interview, saying that he went against doctor’s orders to be there.  McCain added that he’d be happy to have a conversation with President Trump, but acknowledged that they each had a “different upbringing” and “different life experiences.”

He played spoiler to his own party for the second time on this topic by releasing a statement saying he would not support the Graham-Cassidy proposal.  “I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried,” McCain, 81, said in the Sept. 22 statement. “Nor could I support it without knowing how much it will cost, how it will affect insurance premiums, and how many people will be helped or hurt by it.”

Look What Happened To The Lone Steeler’s Player Who Came Out For National Anthem!

According to reports, the Coach of the Steelers Mike Tomlin came down hard on Lone Anthem Supporter Alejandro Villanueva.

Fox News reported: For Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin, being “respectful of our football team” trumped the right of Steelers offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva to show respect for the national anthem.

A former Army Ranger, Villanueva was the only Steeler to break from the team’s orders and come out of the tunnel Sunday in Chicago to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

Speaking after his team’s 23-17 loss to the Bears, Tomlin appeared to take a swipe at the Bronze Star recipient’s decision.

“Like I said, I was looking for 100 percent participation, we were gonna be respectful of our football team,” Tomlin said.

Tomlin told the media that, prior to kickoff Sunday, the Steelers held a team meeting and decided, though not unanimously, to not come out of the locker room for the national anthem. Tomlin added the intent was to have his team focus on the game and not President Trump’s comments blasting players who chose to protest during the playing of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

NFL Ratings Are In!

Following President Trump call to boycott the NFL, the league dipped 11 percent on its third week compared to last year.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Capping off a tumultuous weekend for the NFL, one in which the league and its players were put on the defense by incendiary comments from the U.S. president, Sunday Night Football again saw its ratings lot take a hit from that of the previous year.

The NBC match-up between Oakland and Washington averaged an overnight 11.6 rating among households. The preliminary score, a low for this season, was down 11 percent from early scores the same night a year ago and 9 percent from the week before — albeit with a lopsided score that saw Oakland scoreless well into the second half and ultimately trounced 10-27.

Ben Carson’s Statement On The NFL Anthem Protests Just Went Viral!

Former presidential candidate and current Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Dr. Ben Carson has given a very unique perspective on the NFL protests that have been making their way around our country. It seems like he knows about this kind of thing and how to go bout talking about the issues currently at hand. He sent out a Facebook post that has since gone viral.

During a speech at a rally in Alabama, Trump talked about the NFL and their protesters. “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say ‘Get that son of a b—- off the field right now. Out. He’s fired! He’s fired’” Trump said.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell then came out with a statement calling the President’s words “divisive” and counter-productive. But now Ben Carson has come out with his own thoughts on the issues.

But Carson gave his own perspective during a Facebook post Sunday. He talked about how NFL Sundays used to “represent a time of fun, games and unity” and how it has now been plagued by protests during the national anthem.

“Here we are at another NFL Sunday,” Carson wrote. “That used to represent a time of fun, games and unity. I hope we can return to that situation soon.”

“That is a wonderful message that we should not allow to be distorted by anyone,” Carson wrote, talking about the unity that takes place during the national anthem.

These players do not realize that what they are doing is totally disrespectful and unacceptable. Either that or they do realize it and they simply do not care. Either way, it needs to stop.

He then talked about the youth players that took a knee.

“Last week I saw a story about pre-adolescent players being drawn into the ‘take a knee’ protests,” Carson wrote. “Does anyone honestly believe that encouraging even our youth to believe they are victims of our society will actually help us come together?”

Carson knows what he is talking about. This is doing nothing but dividing us as a nation. Nothing more.
