Pampered players endanger their paychecks by offending fans

CHICAGO—It is axiomatic that National Football League players should stand respectfully as the national anthem is played before their games.  I say this not as a political or moral judgment on their actions but as a simple, scientific observation about their self-interest.

If the players continue their protests, it will not be long before they find themselves plying other trades at severely reduced wages.

Obama Judge Tells Trump Administration to Abort Illegal Mother’s Baby

WASHINGTON, D.C. - An Obama-nominated federal judge ordered the U.S. government to pay for an undocumented illegal immigrant teenager’s abortion at taxpayer expense in Texas. U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan ordered the government to transport the teenager to have the abortion - or allow her guardian to transport her - “promptly and without delay.”

The Justice Department has appealed the case, asking the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit to suspend Judge Chutkan’s ruling regarding the 17-year-old, who crossed the border from Mexico.

Chelsea Handler ends that show you weren’t watching so she can ‘focus on activism’

If you’ve heard anything about Chelsea Handler over the course of the last two years, it was probably because the vulgar, unfunny, comedian was lashing out about politics.  She hates Trump, despises Republicans, and loves posting vulgar pseudo-jokes about the people she hates.

Here’s a sample of her super-funny “comedy.”

VIDEO: Mr. Peterman goes off on Hollywood liberals for thinking they set the moral standard

The good news is that Mr. Peterman and Tim Whatley can go out for coffee and complain about Jerry, George and Elaine without yelling at each other. The even better news is that someone is finally pointing out that Hollywood is hardly in a position to be lecturing the rest of us about right and wrong at the moment:

Granted, Fox News is a bit of a safe space for statements like this, but I think it’s also true the rare Hollywood conservative is probably feeling a bit more brave about speaking up in the aftermath of the Weinstein revelations - especially given the likelihood that we’ve just seen the tip of the iceberg on that score.

Mississippi school bans literary classic “To Kill a Mockingbird” for making people feel

You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view … Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.

These are the wise words of the fictional Atticus Finch from Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, who like poor Huckleberry Finn, has now been assigned to the ash heap of history by society’s politically correct censors.

Big time Democrat hypocrisy on display AGAIN!

Only the Democrats could get away with this. And only the Democrats would try. Because only the Democrats can rely on an utterly corrupt, complicit media to cover for them. Current Virginia Lieutenant Governor and Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam recently removed a photo of Justin Fairfax, his black running mate, and all reference to him, in brochures handed out in Northern Virginia.

According to Erick Erickson of The Resurgent, this was done because Fairfax opposes the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, a project favored by the Laborers’ International Union of North America. Given that Democrats would literally have to fold without union support, this guy has done the unthinkable to make them happy.


Shocking news: Hanoi Jane says she’s not proud of America, but is proud of ‘the resistance’

I don’t suppose it’s a surprise to learn that Jane Fonda is not proud of America. A general disdain for the United States has been one of the hallmarks of her public life.  Despite what she says in this interview, you can be 100% certain that her infamous trip to Viet Nam did change her image forever - but only because it revealed exactly who and what she is.

Bring on ‘tax cuts for the rich’

“Tax cuts for the rich” is always a talking point by Democrats against any tax cut proposal by Republicans. But the Democrats never define “rich”, and the liberal media and most voters let them get away with it.

While on a Fox News Channel’s Outnumbered last Tuesday, the staunch Democrat on the panel let it slip what they mean by “rich. Democrats define rich as anyone, or any corporation, or any entity that works to make a profit as “rich”, and therefore does not deserve any sort of tax cut.

George Soros’ Open Society Foundations just became the second largest in the U.S.

The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that George Soros has donated $18 billion of his personal wealth to his Open Society Foundations. This move will make OSF the second largest in the nation, only exceeded by the foundation formed by Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates. Soros has already made a name for himself in the non-profit world by supporting and sometimes creating practically every left-wing organization in the nation. We can only imagine what evil this portends for our future.

Foundation investment committee member Bill Ford said, “It’s an ongoing process of migration from a hedge fund toward a pool of capital deployed to support a foundation over the long term.”


Harvey Weinstein’s Victims Were Collateral Damage in the Left’s Culture War

In the spring of his final year as a movie mogul, Harvey Weinstein was doing what he always did. Or rather what he always did in public view: as opposed to what he has been accused of doing in hotel rooms and deserted office storage rooms. He was fighting a ratings war over a movie with adult content.

The movie was 3 Generations. It had been made two years earlier to cash in on the transgender boom.  Back then it was called About Ray. But the reviews were bad and the movie was pulled a few days before it was supposed to be released. What do you do with a bad politically correct movie that you paid $6 million for? You start a culture war. And that’s exactly what Harvey Weinstein did.

NBC reporter on MSNBC: Democrat support for Nancy Pelosi falling apart ahead of 2018

In 2018, Democrats will need to flip 24 seats to retake control of the House of Representatives. Anything can happen in a year but, as it stands, it looks like that’s an extremely tall order.  The odds are Republicans will retain control.

Libertarian pretending to be a Republican jeopardizes tax reform by threatening no vote

Just days ago, Rand Paul told President Trump he planned to support the Republican tax reform proposal. Trump took that as good news. This may be the greatest example to date of Trump not having learned how things work on Washington.

Rule 1: Don’t trust Rand Paul. He’s a fraud. He will tell you he wants to achieve certain policy objectives, and you will like the things he says he favors. But he will sabotage these priorities every time, always claiming the proposal isn’t good enough, or honest enough, or pure enough . . . or something enough. Remember, Rand Paul is not a Republican. He’s a libertarian who ran as a Republican because the Libertarian Party can’t get above 1 percent of the vote, because it doesn’t deserve to get above 1 percent of the vote.

VIDEO: Burger King messes with its customers to make a point about bullying . . . that fails very ba

I kinda sorta get what they were trying to do. There’s the tiniest seed of a worthy idea in here. But that doesn’t excuse the ham-handed execution or the way they very unfairly put actual customers on the spot. You want to get set up for national humiliation when you’re just trying to grab some lunch? Burger King is the place to go:

Owners of Cup It Up American Grill in Tucson, Arizona, were forced to shut down their establishment after a backlash against pro-Trump statement posted on social media.

On the “disapproved” list were kneeling for the national anthem, Antifa, fake news, hate groups and hate crimes, and late night hosts getting political.

Numbers Show The Deck is Stacked for Republicans in California’s Legislature

Elected Republicans represent nearly a third of California’s legislators, but are only getting 18 percent of their bills passed, for eventual consideration by Gov. Jerry Brown. This is despite the fact that they represent nearly 40 percent of the voters who cast ballots in the last election. And even worse, Brown so far has only approved about 16.5 percent of Republican bills, while Democrats saw 83.4 percent of their bills signed into law.

A few revealing statistics surrounding the outcomes for 2,550 new bills introduced during the recent 2017 session in the California Legislature point out which party gets to feast, and which can expect leftover crumbs.
