Open Letter to the NFL and its Players

To the NFL and its players:
If I have brain cancer, I don’t ask my dentist what I should do. If my car has a problem, I don’t seek help from a plumber!  Why do you think the public cares what a football player thinks about politics?  If we want to know about football, then depending on the information we seek, we might consult with you, but even a quarterback doesn’t seek advice on playing his position from a defensive tackle!

You seem to have this over inflated view of yourselves, thinking because you enjoy working on such a large scale stage, that somehow your opinion about everything matters.  The NFL realizes the importance of its “image” so it has rules that specify the clothes and insignia you can wear, the language you use, and your “antics” after a touchdown or other “great” play.  But somehow you and your employer don’t seem to care that you disgrace the entire nation and its 320 million people in the eyes of the world by publicly disrespecting this country, its flag, and its anthem!  The taxpaying citizens of this country subsidize your plush work environments, yet you choose to use those venues to openly offend those very citizens.

Do you even understand what the flag of this country means to so many of its citizens before you choose to “take a knee” in protest of this “country” during our national anthem?

You may think because you are paid so much that your job is tough, but you are clueless when it comes to tough.  Let me show you those whose job is really tough.

You are spoiled babies who stand around and have staff squirt GatorAid in your mouths, sit in front of misting cooling fans when it’s warm, and sit on heated benches when it’s cold.  That’s not “tough” that’s pampered.

You think that you deserve to be paid excessively high salaries, because you play a “dangerous” game where you can incur career ending injuries.  Let me show you career ending injuries!

You think you that you deserve immediate medical attention and the best medical facilities and doctors when injured.  Let me show you what it’s like for those who really need and deserve medical attention.

You think you have the right to disrespect the flag of the United States, the one our veterans fought for, risked limbs and mental stability to defend, in many cases died for.  Let me show you what our flag means to them, their families, and their friends.

You believe you are our heroes, when in reality you are nothing but overpaid entertainers, who exist solely for our enjoyment!  Well, your current antics are neither entertaining nor enjoyable, but rather a disgrace to this country, its citizens, all our veterans and their families, and the sacrifices they have made to ensure this country remains free.  You choose to openly disgrace this country in the eyes of the rest of the world, yet with all your money, still choose to live here rather than in any other country. People with even the slightest amount of “Class” will stand and respect our flag.  Where does that put you?  You want to see heroes…here are this countries heroes!

You can protest policies, the current government, or anything else you choose, that is your right.  But when you “protest” our flag and anthem, you are insulting the nation we all live in and love, and all those who have served, been injured, or died to keep it free.  There is nothing you can do or say that can make your actions anything more than the arrogance of classless people, who care about themselves more than our country or the freedoms for which our veterans and their families have sacrificed so much, to ensure you have the “right” to speak freely.  Our country is far from perfect, but if you can point to any other country where your freedom and opportunities are better than they are here, then you just might want to go there and show respect for their flag!

YouTube Targets Mike Rowe for Restriction, You’ll Never Believe Why! ⋆ Constitution.com

Have you ever watched Mike Rowe?  If you honestly have, then you know he’s not much of a political person, at least in his public life.  The values he tends to support could be considered traditional, and perhaps conservative, but he very much tends to keep his politics to himself.  If you’ve watched the video in question in the linked article, and you AREN’T wondering how in the world YouTube could find it offensive, I question your sanity, morality, and mental stability.

Conservatives have been noting for some time how increasingly progressive outlets like YouTube, Facebook, and Google are doing everything they can to stifle conservative thought and opinion, but Mike Rowe???  Seriously, YouTube.  At least TRY to hide your anti-conservative bias.

They Tyranny of Gun Control

When a politician wants to make you live by a rule or law which they refuse to live by themselves, that should tell you all you need to know about submitting to such a law.

Here we have the ultra-progressives of California who want all the gun control they can get, but have openly exempted themselves from it.  When someone wants to keep their guns, but doesn’t want you to keep yours, does that send a message to you?  It should.

Realize that this didn’t happen yesterday, but back in 2011.  Since then, the progressives have just been making it harder and harder for the citizens of California to own a gun while the progressive politicians arm themselves with impunity, and have armed security.

Until we stop falling into the trap of blaming inanimate objects instead of blaming the criminal for their crime, we’ll never solve the problem.  And if we allow ourselves to be disarmed, we will have no protection from the criminals OR the tyrants who want to disarm us.

California Senate Votes 28-8 to Exempt Itself from California Gun Laws

The California State Senate agrees with Charlie Rangel that they “deserve” to own guns but the citizens do not! Every year they pass more and more gun control laws and NONE of them apply to themselves!

They voted 28-8 to exempt themselves from the gun-control laws that apply to the rest of the California.

You think maybe this will cause Californians to rise up? NOPE! It happened 5 years ago and since then, California has passed a plethora of other gun laws…that only apply to citizens.

Yes, you heard me right! The exemption was created in 2011 and the California legislature has passed a number of gun laws since. Pretty easy when you are passing bills that do not apply to you!

It is not the only special privileges California legislators provide themselves!

They do not pay red light camera bills or for gasoline!

How does it all happen so easily in California? The Washington Post explains:

Attempts by a handful of reformers to require politicians to provide a full annual disclosure of the benefits received from the public treasury have been rebuffed. Currently, government officials must file a statement of economic interests revealing income from any source other than a local, state or federal government agency. Gifts worth more than $50 also must be disclosed, but lawmakers rejected a bill that would have prohibited acceptance of concert and sporting event tickets, gift cards, spa treatments, golf outings and other benefits from lobbyists trying to buy votes.

Bills of this nature never meet an honest fate in which roll-call votes put members on the record as favoring or opposing each idea. Instead, reform measures are held in committee to die quietly as legislative deadlines pass. As of last week, it’s effectively impossible for a bill to become law if it hasn’t already passed in at least one of the chambers.

…and it just goes on and on!

Red Skelton said so eloquently in his commentary on the Pledge of Allegiance:

And to the Republic — A Republic: a sovereign state in which power is invested into the representatives chosen by the people to govern; and the government is the people; and it’s from the people to the leaders, not from the leaders to the people.

California has it backwards, they are running with the method of “from the leaders to the people.”

That is why I joined the 5 million people who have fled California within the last decade.

You can take me out of Texas in a pine box, and even then I will be kicking and screaming!

Trying to Put a Pretty Face On an Ugly Party

Tulsi Gabbard on Tucker Carlson

“We, as the American people, should be concerned when any president of the United States launches an illegal and unconstitutional military strike against a foreign government.  This is something congress has not authorized, and it’s an escalation of a counterproductive regime-change war in Syria that our country has been waging for years.  First for many years through the CIA covertly, and now overtly through President Trump’s reckless military strike last night.” –Tulsi Gabbard, Democrat (HI)

While I am still not so sure that striking Syria at this time was such a good idea, I am sure that the democrat response, and specifically the response of Tulsi Gabbard who seems to represent the views of most democrats on this issue, is one of outright hypocrisy.  Despite her relatively attractive external appearance, she is just as dark and intellectually bankrupt on the inside as the rest of the democrat party.

Perhaps you remember one Barack Hussein Obama committing US forces to combat in Libya to support rebels seeking to overthrow the government of Libya.  There was no legitimate US interest in overthrowing Muammar Gaddafi, who had kept to himself since nearly being killed by Ronald Reagan in Operation El Dorado Canyon, and in fact had actually been cooperating with us by providing intelligence on terrorist organizations and activities.  Yet Barack Obama sided with the rebels seeking to overthrow Gaddafi, violating the War Powers Act by not receiving approval from congress within the required time, or at all.  In doing so, Obama fanned the flames of what came to be known as the “Arab Spring,” which ultimately destabilized the ENTIRE MIDDLE EAST, and created what became ISIS.

In Gabbard’s revised history, did she or the democrats say the American people should have been concerned when Barack Obama launched an illegal and unconstitutional military strike against a foreign government?  No.  No, they did not.  In fact, she completely left out Obama’s and the democrats involvement in destabilizing the middle east, and waging a war to overthrow Bashar Assad, who was of no threat to America.

There are a number of reasons why striking Syria right now may not have been the best idea.  There is the possibility Russia may have been responsible for the chemical weapon strike instead of Syria.  If the Syrians performed the strike, why did they have chemical weapons at all, since Obama supposedly arranged for Russia to take all of Syria’s chemical weapons in a brokered deal following Obama’s multiple “red lines” which he never enforced.  Shouldn’t Russia have to answer these questions?  Then there is the possibility that we could have accidentally hit the Russians in Syria, leading to war between us and Russia, which we are not prepared for.

So many reasons NOT to strike Syria.  But we did strike them, and in doing so have ONCE AGAIN exposed the intellectual dishonesty of the democrat party, and the liberal left in America.

Rep. Gabbard: Syria missile strike ‘illegal and unconstitutional’

Published April 07, 2017

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, told Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Friday that the American missile strike on a Syrian airfield as “an illegal and unconstitutional military strike” that drew the United States closer to military conflict with Russia.
Gabbard, an Iraq War veteran, also said the strike was “an escalation of a counterproductive regime change war in Syria that our country’s been waging for years, first through the CIA covertly, and now overtly.”
FLASHBACK: GABBARD SAYS SHE MET WITH ASSAD DURING SYRIA TRIP
In January, Gabbard met with Syrian President Bashar Assad in Damascus. When host Tucker Carlson asked if she believed Assad’s forces to be responsible for the chemical weapons attack that precipitated the missile strikes, Gabbard answered, “It doesn’t matter what I believe or not. What matters is evidence and facts.
“If the Trump administration has the evidence, unequivocally proving this, then share it with the American people,” Gabbard continued. “Share it with Congress. Come to Congress and make your case before launching an unauthorized, illegal military strike against a foreign government.
“Gabbard also said that efforts to overthrow Assad would only strengthen extremist groups, and expressed concerns about Moscow’s response to the missile strikes.
“Russia … are very closely allied with Syria and … have their own military operating [on] the ground there,” the congresswoman said, “and when you consider the consequences of that, the United States and Russia being the two nuclear powers in the world, it should be a cause of great concern for everyone.”

Obama Birth Certificate PROVEN to be a Forgery

Well, it has been confirmed by an extensive investigation by law enforcement personnel, not simply by someone wearing a tinfoil hat.  The “birth certificate,” which is the 3rd or 4th one presented to the public, that Obama says is THE one, is a fake.  A phony.  A forgery.  So, now what?

Will a Trump administration investigate this further?  Doubt it.  Will congress demand answers?  Doubt it.  If they ran this to ground and found that Obama was indeed an ineligible and illegitimate president, they would be forced to nullify everything Obama has done, and in the process weaken their own power and privilege.  My prediction is that this gets swept under the rug, and gets forever labeled a tinfoil hat conspiracy theory.  I would like to feel strongly that we would find the TRUTH, but America is no longer a nation of rule of law CONSISTENTLY applied to ALL citizens.

Democrats Have Been Lying to Black Americans for Decades

China creates air defence zone over Japan-controlled islands; Taiwan next?

We told you. Once China and others viewed us as too weak to intervene, they would take regional actions that they would never have taken when we were stronger. How long before they move to take Taiwan? When they move to take it, we will be in no position to do anything to stop them. What was it Hillary Roundrod Clinton was saying about the “de-Americanization” of the world?

Remember that this same view of American weakness in large part precipitated the last world war.  Just sayin’…

China creates air defence zone over Japan-controlled islands

AFP – Beijing on Saturday announced it was setting up an “air defence identification zone” over an area that includes islands controlled by Japan but claimed by China, in a move that could inflame the bitter territorial row.

Along with the creation of the zone in the East China Sea, the defence ministry released a set of aircraft identification rules that must be followed by all planes entering the area, under penalty of intervention by the military.

Aircraft are expected to provide their flight plan, clearly mark their nationality, and maintain two-way radio communication allowing them to “respond in a timely and accurate manner to the identification inquiries” from Chinese authorities.

The outline of the new zone, which is shown on the ministry website and a state media Twitter account (pic.twitter.com/4a2vC6PH8O), covers a wide area of the East China Sea between South Korea and Taiwan that includes the Tokyo-controlled islands known as the Senkakus to Japan and Diaoyous to China.

“China’s armed forces will adopt defensive emergency measures to respond to aircraft that do not cooperate in the identification or refuse to follow the instructions,” according to the ministry.

The zone became operational as of 10:00 am Saturday (0200 GMT).

Four Chinese coastguard boats briefly entered Senkaku waters on Friday, following multiple incursions at the end of October and start of November which revived tensions between Beijing and Tokyo.

Japanese Defence Minister Itsunori Onodera said in late October that the repeated incursions were a threat to peace and fell in a “grey zone (between) peacetime and an emergency situation”.

A few days earlier, the Chinese defence minister warned Japan that any bid to shoot down its drones would constitute “an act of war”.

The move came after a report said Japan had drafted plans to shoot down foreign drones that encroach on its airspace if warnings to leave are ignored.

Sino-Japanese relations have remained at a low-ebb for more than a year as a result of the dispute, which was revived when Japan nationalised three of the archipelago’s five islands in September 2012.

Since that time, China has sent regular coast guard patrols to the islands, which are 200 kilometres (125 miles) northeast of Taiwan and 400 kilometres west of Japan’s Okinawa.
