SHOCKING: Cleveland Browns Stadium 20 Min. Before Kickoff

This image is pretty shocking.

Yes, this is still 20-minutes before kickoff, but even so, that’s A LOT of empty seats.

The NFL is in trouble.

President Trump Sees NFL Player Kneel For Anthem – Demands PERFECT Punishment

The moment President Donald Trump spotted one of the overpaid, “oppressed” NFL stars kneeling for the American national anthem and then STANDING for the Mexican national anthem (the game was played in Mexico City), he had something important to say.

Now only if we had an NFL commissioner who wasn’t a complete coward with lack of backbone, this player would probably actually be punished. Read below to see what Trump demanded.

Daily Snark reports:

Donald Trumps crusade against the NFL furthered early Monday morning.

Following Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch sitting during the Unites States National Anthem yet standing for the Mexican National Anthem ahead of the Patriots-Raiders game held in Mexico, the President tweeted out his thoughts, condemning Lynch, even calling for a suspension.

Trump has tweeted numerous times regarding the Anthem protests, notably against Colin Kaepernick, igniting backlash against the league by the President’s supporters.

SHARE this on Facebook if you support President Trump and think this thug player should be disciplined for disrespecting America while on foreign soil.

Roy Moore Jumps to 10 Point Lead in PredictIt Market

Judge Roy Moore is once again leading ultra-liberal Democrat Doug Jones in the PredictIt Market.

Via PredictIt:

Before the Washington Post story broke, Roy Moore was almost a lock to win at 89 percent in PredictIt’s Alabama Senate race prediction market. After the allegations surfaced, Moore’s odds dropped to 59 percent that day. He remained a slight favorite over Doug Jones, who also saw a significant bump on the news, until Monday when a fifth woman came forward with allegations against Moore.

On Monday afternoon, for the first time in the race, PredictIt traders had Doug Jones in the lead at 47 percent to Moore’s 38 percent.

Moore has since regained a huge lead in the PredictIt market.

As of Saturday afternoon Conservative Republican Roy Moore was back up on top of Doug Jones in the Alabama race.

** This comes after several of the accusations against Roy Moore have fallen apart.

Moore now leads in the PredictIt market 57 to 47.

That is a 19 point jump in little bit more than a week.

Here is how the race stands as of Monday morning:

The Priest Just Told Christians To Let Go Of Christmas

A priest said Christians should let go of Christmas because it has been hijacked by Santa Clause and Reindeers.

From Express Uk:

Father Desmond O’Donnell said Christians of all denominations should realise that Christmas and Easter no longer have any sacred meaning.

He told the Belfast Telegraph: “We’ve lost Christmas, just like we lost Easter, and should abandon the word completely. We need to let it go, it’s already been hijacked and we just need to recognise and accept that.

“I am simply asking that space be preserved for believers for whom Christmas has nothing to do with Santa and reindeer.

“My religious experience of true Christmas, like so many others, is very deep and real – like the air, I breathe. But non-believers deserve and need their celebration too, it’s an essential human dynamic and we all need that in the toughness of life.

Frustrated GOP Running Out of Options – They Can’t Stop Roy Moore

The GOP establishment did their best to stop Roy Moore, but it looks as if their efforts have failed miserably.

His poll numbers are up, and he’s raised $5000k in 6 days.

Not only that, but the politcal smear job they tried to pull has falled apart.

The GOP even tried to implore Trump to condemen Moore, and he refused.

Time has run out for the swamp, and it looks like once again, their efforts have failed.

From The Hill

Senate Republicans are running out of options in their effort to replace Roy Moore as the party’s nominee in the Alabama Senate race.

In the past week, they tried to pressure Moore to drop out by siding with the women who accused him of sexual misconduct. He refused.

They tried to coax President Trump into calling for Moore’s ouster. Trump declined.

They tried to convince the Alabama Republican Party to disqualify Moore as the nominee or to schedule a new election. Those officials said no.

They tried to find a write-in candidate to challenge Moore, but their first choice, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, signaled through allies he wasn’t interested.

Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.), the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), went so far as to call for a vote to expel Moore from the Senate should he win the Dec. 12 special election.

Nothing has worked. Moore is still in the race.

Senate Republicans are increasingly resigned to the idea that there’s nothing they can do to stop Moore from coming to Washington, short of hoping that Doug Jones, the Democratic candidate, wins the seat.

An NRSC poll leaked this past week showed Moore trailing Jones by 12 points, while a Fox News Poll showed him behind by 8 points.

Should Jones win the race, it would reduce the Senate GOP majority to 51 votes and could imperil their ability to pass tax reform and other high priorities.

“While people in Alabama and in Washington hold out some hope that a change could happen between now and election day, that hope is quickly turning into concern that it may never happen,” said a Washington-based strategist close to the Senate GOP leadership about the prospect of replacing Moore as the nominee.

By midweek, the mere mention of Moore’s name prompted anguished looks and exasperated answers from Republican senators.

“I’m really done talking about Moore,” said Senate Republican Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas), who is usually happy to talk about any topic with the Capitol press corps.

“I’m not going to get in the middle of that, I got enough problems without that,” said Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) when asked about the race.

“It’s up to Alabama,” he said.

The White House on Friday signaled that Washington Republicans should simply let the race take its course.

“At some point, we have to trust the people of Alabama to make the right decision,” White House legislative director Marc Short told CNN.

Short noted that Trump campaigned for Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.), who lost to Moore in the primary, and argued that not much more could be done.

“Everyone here in D.C. wants to decide for them what to do. The president weighed in and it’s now up to them to make a decision,” he said.

The Alabama Republican Party this week signaled it remains firmly behind Moore.

The state party steering committee issued a statement that the allegations against Moore, which were first reported by The Washington Post, “are false.”

The committee stated it found “these allegations to be lies, slander, deceit and the politics of personal destruction” that have “been used time and time again to destroy lives and win political campaigns.”

Moore’s wife of more than three decades, Kayla Moore, declared at a press conference in Montgomery that her husband would not drop out of the race.

“He will not step down. He will not stop fighting for the people of Alabama,” she said.

She said the negative media coverage of Moore has come mostly from outside of the state.

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R) on Friday said she would vote for Moore despite the allegations. “We need to have a Republican in the United States Senate to vote on things like the Supreme Court justices, other appointments the Senate has to confirm and make major decisions,” she said.

One senior Republican senator on Thursday warned that voting to expel Moore would be a mistake, given that the voters of Alabama are already aware of the allegations against him.

“Who are we to expel someone who is duly elected by the voters? It raises constitutional issues,” the lawmaker said.

Article I of the Constitution empowers the Senate to “determine the rules of its proceedings, punish its members for disorderly behavior, and, with the concurrence of two thirds, expel a member.”

But senators on both sides of the aisle say expelling Moore would require be a thorough investigation by the Senate Ethics Committee, which now has its plate full with separate inquiries into Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.), who has been accused of unwanted kissing and groping, and Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), who is accused by the Department of Justice of accepting bribes.

Gardner on Wednesday didn’t want to talk about Moore when he was asked about the latest effort to find a write-in replacement.

“I’ve made my statement on Alabama,” he said hastily before ducking into a meeting.

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), a moderate, told reporters this week that after studying the law she has concluded that the Senate would have no choice but to seat Moore should the Alabama secretary of state certify his victory.

Stanley Brand, an expert in congressional ethics investigations, said a vote to expel Moore could run afoul of the 1969 Supreme Court ruling in Powell v. McCormack because Moore’s alleged misconduct took place before the election and was known to voters.

The court ruled nearly 50 years ago that the House acted unconstitutionally by voting overwhelmingly to exclude Adam Clayton Powell Jr. of New York because of alleged personal and financial misconduct.

“If the electorate votes for that member notwithstanding the conduct, the presumption is they’ve condoned or pardoned the conduct,” Brand said.

He noted the Supreme Court ruled in Clayton v. McCormack that the qualifications for the Senate are fixed in the constitution and Moore meets them as a resident of Alabama over the minimum age requirement.

“You can’t refuse to seat a member who possesses those qualification. That leaves open the issue of whether you could expel that member,” Brand said.

“If he’s elected by the people of Alabama, the presumption is they knew about the conduct and elected him notwithstanding,” he added. “They’re in a tough position in that they’re sailing into the teeth of a very tough Supreme Court precedent if they try to exclude or expel this guy.”

They Threatened Trump To Keep Jesus OUT Of The WH, So He Fired Back With THIS [VIDEO]

Donald Trump and his administration are Christians and not in name only, but they practice Christianity and they also pray together. This is an uncommon thing for the liberal elites and, to be honest, in the past 2 decades, we didn’t see a good, dedicated Christian residents in the White House.

In addition, the leftists hate this and they try to make Trump keep Jesus out of the White House. They don’t want religion at all, except Islam, but anyway they can not stand a Christian leader of this country.

Obama disparaged not just Christianity while in office but all faithful followers of God. Liberals wanted the same from Trump, but our president refused to cave to the pressure!

During an interview with David Brody of CBN, President Trump was asked what he thought would be the place of the Christian faith in his administration. Brody wanted to know if being the leader of the free world has caused him to pray more. Trump responded, “Well, I’ll tell you what, I’ve always felt the need to pray.”

Our president continued, “And you know that…So, I would say that the office is so powerful that you need God even more, because your decisions are no longer, ‘Gee, I’m going to build a building in New York,’ or ‘I’m going to do this.’ These are questions of massive life and death, even with regard to health care. You know we’re working very hard on health care.”

Obama would have tried to dodge questions about his faith but not Donald Trump. Then again, Trump didn’t spend the better part of two decades sitting in the pew of a radical church, with a pastor who shouted, “God damn America,” from the pulpit.

President Trump said every decision a president makes could be a life-altering one. The gravity of the job means God “comes in” even moreat least for the 45th president of the United States.

Trump fully realized the impact his words and actions have on tens of millions of Americans, but bearing such a burden alone isn’t necessary for a true believer.

An Islamic sympathizer like Obama would never have spoken so lovingly about Christianity during an interview. Since the mainstream media were in his pocket, he never had to worry about answering a difficult or even a slightly controversial question in an adversarial manner.

Hillary Clinton thought for sure that evangelicals would not use the power of their numbers to help elect Donald Trump. As she is about so many things, she was wrong about this as well.

Evangelical Christians came out in droves for Trump. Not because they felt he was extremely devout or could quote the Bible chapter and verse, but because he wholeheartedly respected their beliefs.

Donald Trump is a great person, not just because of his personal success as a businessman and politician, but because of his religious and kind nature. He is one of us, he is not an elitist, but an envoy of the oppressed American people.

These Four Words In Oath Made Immigrant Change Her Mind About Becoming A US Citizen, Instead She’s Suing

It’s a match made in heaven. And now it’s a match made not just for American liberals, but for liberal foreigners with plenty of time on their hands.

Mind you, the usual target of lib suits is a government agency, or a major corporation, or some poor group of fisherman who live near an endangered species. But today’s lawsuit is far and away the worst.

Because this lawsuit is challenging the Constitution itself.

Folks, meet Olga Perrier-Bilbo, an atheist who is suing the government over the words ‘so help me God’ in the oath of allegiance to the United States.

Candidates for US citizenship take the oath of allegiance during a Naturalization Ceremony for new US citizens at the City Hall of Jersey City in New Jersey on February 22, 2017. / AFP / KENA BETANCUR (Photo credit should read KENA BETANCUR/AFP/Getty Images)

The Independent Journal Review reports:

A French national has filed a federal lawsuit against the U.S. government, claiming the citizenship oath violates her religious freedom.

Olga Perrier-Bilbo, an atheist, has lived in Massachusetts since 2000 and wants to become a U.S. citizen but claims she can’t because the oath requires her to say, “So help me God.”

You might be wondering how a foreign national has managed to sue the US government. Well, she had help – very eager liberal help.

Perrier-Bilbo’s lawyer, Michael Newdow, has a fondness for cases involving God.

The atheist attorney drew attention for a U.S. Supreme Court case when he argued the Pledge of Allegiance should be rewritten to exclude “under God.”

In 2016, Newdow filed a federal lawsuit arguing “In God We Trust” must be removed from U.S. currency.

Ah, liberal lawyers. With disabled vets needing proper medical care, free speech on campus in need of protection, and nearly every government agency in need of reform, it’s nice to know that lib suits have directed their lobbying efforts to… well, removing a phrase from a piece of paper.

Priorities tell you everything about a person.

And they tell you everything about Perrier-Bilbo. Because there’s one thing I left out in her story. You might think she would be excited to take the oath if the government allowed her to change it.

Sadly, no.

Despite being given the opportunity to use a modified oath or participate in a private citizenship ceremony, the French immigrant still filed a lawsuit last Thursday.

The lawsuit was more important than the citizenship, I guess.

URGENT: FBI Caught In Massive Cover-Up, It’s All Going Public

Judicial Watch is a government watchdog group that often uses lawsuits to reveal information to the public. Their latest investigation is going to flip FBI officials on their heads.

The Department of Justice contacted Judicial Watch to inform them that the FBI located 30 pages of documents. These pages relate to the meeting between former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton on June 27, 2016. The materials are scheduled to be sent to Judicial Watch no later than November 30th, 2017.

The documents are being sent directly to Judicial Watch in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit that was filed when the Justice Department disregarded their request on July 7, 2016.

A number of details are bound to be exposed when information surrounding this meeting comes out. Many have wondered about the nature of the meeting, and this instantly throws out the narrative that Lynch and Clinton gave for the event.

According to the two of them, they met up to talk about golfing and grandkids. One can’t help but wonder how golfing and grandkids produced 30 pages of documentation — unless that was just a cover story.

Once the information is released, all FD-302 forms under the FBI’s investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server will be, too. Allegedly, the meeting between Lynch and Clinton involved details about these servers.

If anyone in the FBI, the office of the President, or the DNC have a communication log within these 30 pages, that information is included in the request. This information could help determine if Clinton and Lynch worked on establishing the “grandkids and golf” alibi before it ever went public.

Finally, all records related to the meeting of Lynch and Clinton will be released to Judicial Watch. This information can further elaborate on motive and foresight.

Initially, the FBI told Judicial Watch that there were no documents or records relevant to that tarmac meeting. However, in a similar case, the Justice Department found emails where officials within the department spoke with the FBI about the event.

As a result of those findings, a letter was sent to Judicial Watch from the FBI reading, “Upon further review, we subsequently determined potentially responsive documents may exist. As a result, your [FOIA] request has been reopened…” Now, the true nature of this meeting is going to be exposed to the public.

There are some that have speculated that the meetings directly involved  Hillary Clinton’s private email server. Others have said that since this meeting happened right before the release of the Benghazi report, that this may have something to do with that incident where four Americans lost their lives.

Tom Fitton from Judicial Watch has stated, “The FBI is out of control. It is stunning that the FBI ‘found’ these Clinton-Lynch tarmac records only after we caught the agency hiding them in another lawsuit.” He continued, “Judicial Watch will continue to press for answers about the FBI’s document games in court. In the meantime, the FBI should stop the stonewall and release these new records immediately.”

California Councilman Arrested On Bribery, Arson Charges – Jerry Brown Is Stunned Speechless

In the annals of crime, some of the most incredible and stunningly ridiculous are those where the perpetrator has been set up by undercover agents after weeks, months, and even years of investigation and evidence gathering. In the cases of the 1970’s where many mobs in big cities around the country were being infiltrated by undercover agents (a very dangerous professional assignment, by the way), the members of these families were literally stabbing each other in the backs over money and power.

Nowadays, while there isn’t much going on overtly in the underground mob world in the way of major investigations (at least not here in the United States), there is a concerted effort on the parts of federal investigators to begin cleaning up the corruption that exists within our own government. At the behest of the current administration, many of these investigations are ongoing.

In California, however, investigators have had their eye on a different kind of government official, one who believed that he was not only smarter than the average criminal, but even smarter than the average city council member. Adelanto city councilman, Jermaine Wright, has been caught in a number of schemes and plots that attempted to defraud an insurance company and also placed secret kickback money over the welfare of the constituents! And now, he’s been arrested!

Jermaine Wright

From Los Angeles Times:

An Adelanto city councilman has been accused of accepting bribes and asking an undercover FBI agent to burn down his restaurant so he could collect insurance payouts, according to a criminal complaint made public Wednesday.

Mayor Pro Tem Jermaine Wright, 41, was arrested Tuesday night and will appear in federal court Wednesday after his arrest as part of an undercover corruption probe targeting misconduct in the city, federal prosecutors said in a statement.

Earlier this year, a confidential informant introduced Wright to an undercover FBI agent posing as the owner of a marijuana cultivation business, prosecutors said. Wright agreed to vote in favor of a measure expanding the parts of Adelanto where marijuana could be grown in exchange for $20,000, according to a criminal complaint.

Wright directed the undercover agent to make the “donation” through a third party, who was not identified in court documents. Wright said that man “keeps us out of jail,” according to the complaint.

After the council vote, Wright also agreed to accept a $15,000 bribe in exchange for helping “fast track” the undercover agent’s proposal for a marijuana business, according to prosecutors.

But during a meeting last month, the undercover agent provided Wright with $10,000 that was understood to be payment for the councilman’s future assistance with council votes that could benefit his fictional marijuana business, including the promise that Wright would keep code enforcement officers at bay in exchange for future cash payments, according to the complaint. Wright also agreed to help the agent get an exemption so he could run a marijuana transportation business outside the area zoned for cannabis cultivation, according to the complaint.

“If he wants his exemption, I want my ten,” Wright told an informant, according to the complaint.

Wright has also confessed to a separate plot to hire another man, also an undercover FBI agent, to burn down a restaurant he owns called Fat Boyz Grill, prosecutors said. Wright stood to gain $300,000 in insurance payouts, prosecutors said.

Wright is truly a man of no moral values or ethics and how he ever got elected is a bewildering thing. When we think of California, we often just write off a candidate as crazy (think Jerry Brown), but more often than not, they are corrupt and dangerous. Although no formal charges have been brought against her, I’ve often thought that Maxine Waters is a reprehensible person who should be as far from elected office as is humanly possible.

As it is, the township will now have to find a replacement for Wright and you can bet your bottom dollar that he will be a Democrat. How do I know? Look at Seattle where an openly gay ex-Mayor stepped down after a scandal involving underage men. What did Seattle voters do? They send a Democrat back into the office right on the heels of the disgraced mayor.

Trump Takes Back What’s Ours, Orders Immediate Halt To…

Any good businessman knows this: if you want something done right, sometimes you have to do it yourself. Even if it’s ‘fixing the country.’

The lib idiots in Congress can’t do anything right. They’ve screwed up on almost every part of Trump’s agenda, except nominating Gorsuch – and that was a near thing. They can’t fund a wall. They can’t pass a travel ban.

And they can’t repeal Obamacare.

Luckily for the rest of us, Trump is still committed to keeping his campaign promises. Even if it means going it alone.

In related news, Donald Trump has crippled Obamacare by cancelling the government subsidy payments that for so long had propped up the law.

The Independent Journal Review reports:

In the latest blow to Obama’s healthcare bill, President Donald Trump is set to scrap key subsidy payments to insurers, the administration’s most aggressive move to undermine Obamacare yet.

An executive order from the president [allowed] healthy, young Americans to buy inexpensive healthcare plans outside of Obamacare’s restrictions.

The payments [are] worth an estimated $7 billion this year.

I honestly want to applaud.

The President has been asking Republicans in Congress to get behind his agenda for months now. And none of them have had the courage to act. It’s been one constant failure after another.

And the fact is, Trump can’t repeal Obamacare without Congress. But he can cripple it.

When your subordinates don’t do as you ask, sometimes you have to do it yourself, any way you can. It’s how you win.

And I bet that, once Obamacare fails, all those Republicans who were hesitant to join Trump will really, really wish they had. You know, before it was popular.

You might expect that Democrats are furious. You’re right, and they are.

But Trump is no dummy. He wouldn’t make such a move without a secure legal backing.

And in this case, the legal grounding for crippling Obamacare is rock solid.

“The Obama administration went ahead and made payments to insurance companies after requesting — but never ultimately receiving — an appropriation from Congress as required by law.”

“After a thorough legal review, we believe that the last administration overstepped the legal boundaries drawn by our Constitution.”

That ‘legal review’ isn’t a bluff. It’s the opinions of several seasoned DC lawyers from several different branches of the government. Including the attorney general himself.

Trump’s move is on sound legal footing. And America is rejoicing.
