Democrats Want It Buried. Wikileaks Publishes Emails Linking Them To Justice Scalia’s Death

L1| WIKILEAKS HAS SOME EXTREMELY INCRIMINATING EVIDENCE ABOUT THE DEATH OF JUSTICE SCALIA, AND THE SUSPICIOUS DEATH HAS TIES TO HILLARY CLINTON AND OTHER DEMOCRATS.

Despite Scalia being known for his unhealthy lifestyle, after his death last year, there was a damaging collection of foul play.

Hillary can not continue with all this deceit, and we can not let her get away with her rotten crimes any longer.

Reported by thewhiner:

A former D.C. Homicide commander, William O. Ritchie raised some logical questions…

From awn:

“As a former homicide commander, I am stunned that no autopsy was ordered for Justice Scalia,” William O. Ritchie, former head of criminal investigations for D.C. police, wrote in a Facebook post.

“You have a Supreme Court Justice who died, not in attendance of a physician,” Ritchie continued. “You have a non-homicide trained US Marshal tell the justice of peace that no foul play was observed. You have a justice of the peace pronounce death while not being on the scene and without any medical training opining that the justice died of a heart attack. What medical proof exists of a myocardial Infarction? Why not a cerebral hemorrhage?”

Those who dare go against the Soros/Obama/Clinton agenda often mysteriously and suddenly die. No autopsy says it was not a “natural” death. An autopsy should have been done. He wasn’t that old, and the circumstances alone would have warranted one. How convenient that he was cremated…

BREAKING! Justice Department Finally Bringing Major Charges After Reopening Huge Investigation

More political theater?

The U.S. Justice Department under President Donald Trump has now agreed to provide congressional investigators confidential records on the failed Barack Hussein Obama era gun-trafficking operation known as “Fast and Furious” that has long has been criticized by Republican lawmakers.

In an agreement that would end the six-year-long battle between GOP lawmakers and the Obama administration Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the justice department would immediately turn over documents to the Republican-led Congress Committee of Oversight and Government reform which were previously withheld by the Obama Administration.

Congressional Republicans had been pressuring the Justice Department for years about this operation which is named after a movie franchise about car racing. The operation was supposed to curb gun-trafficking criminals who were selling weapons to Mexican drug cartels by having to compete with the United States Government. Although this was originally started under the George W. Bush Administration, he scrapped it when he saw it wasn’t working as intended. But since Obama was only for disarming law-abiding American citizens, he took it upon himself to try it again, only to find that American guns were used in multiple Mexican cartel massacres.

In June 2012, the Republican-led House voted to hold Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt for failing to turn over documents about the operation. The committee sued Eric Holder for access to the documents in August 2012. Obama later asserted executive privilege to block the disclosure of the documents. And it didn’t go any further because the GOP was afraid to go after the first African American President and his Attorney General.

The best part of this whole saga is that at the time Democrats accused Republicans of engaging in a partisan witch hunt. Can anyone say “Fake Russian Trump Dossier?”

Let’s hope this time we can get some answers and see a few people responsible behind bars.

Via National Review:

“Obama-administration scandals never resolve. They just vanish — usually, under a new scandal.

So it was with one of this president’s earliest embarrassments, “Operation Fast and Furious,” designed to help the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) dismantle drug cartels operating inside the United States and disrupt drug-trafficking routes. Instead, it put into the hands of criminals south of the border some 2,000 weapons, which have been used to kill hundreds of Mexicans and at least one American, U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.

Now, Fast and Furious is back in the news. Earlier this month, a raid on the hidey-hole of drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman recovered not only the notorious drug lord, but a (“massive”) .50-caliber rifle, capable of stopping a car or shooting down a helicopter, that originated with the ATF program. Rest easy, though: Only 34 such rifles were sold through the program.

The news comes just days after a federal judge rejected President Obama’s assertion of executive privilege to deny Congress access to Fast and Furious–related records it requested back in 2012 as part of an investigation into the gun-walking operation. Despite the IRS scandal, Benghazi, and a host of other accusations of malfeasance against this White House, it remains this president’s sole assertion of executive privilege.

Three-and-a-half years later, the question is still: Why?

In November 2009, the ATF’s Phoenix field office launched an operation in which guns bought by drug-cartel straw purchasers in the U.S. were allowed to “walk” across the border into Mexico. ATF agents would then track the guns as they made their way through the ranks of the cartel.

At least, that was the theory. In reality, once the guns walked across the border, they were gone. Whistleblowers reported, and investigators later confirmed, that the ATF made no effort to trace the guns.

In March 2010, a few ATF agents voiced an obvious concern: Couldn’t the guns end up being used in crimes? Seven months later, that’s exactly what happened. The brother of the former attorney general of the state of Chihuahua was murdered, and Fast and Furious weapons were found at the scene.

In December, the scheme’s ramifications crossed back over the border. On December 14, four Border Patrol agents were staked out near Rio Rico, Ariz., eleven miles north of the Mexican border. A five-man “rip crew,” a group looking to rob drug smugglers crossing the border, opened fire when the agents attempted to apprehend. Agent Terry was struck in the back and bled to death. Two of the guns involved in the shootout were traced back to Fast and Furious, which continued for another six weeks.

The operation was finally shut down with the help of Senator Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa), then ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who promptly opened an investigation. Two months later, Darrell Issa (R., Calif.), then chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, opened his own investigation in the House.

#share#Operation Fast and Furious would have been bad enough. But the investigation made clear a widespread cover-up. In February, in response to a request from Grassley, Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich submitted for the record a letter declaring that any claim “that ATF ‘sanctioned’ or otherwise knowingly allowed the sale of assault weapons to a straw purchaser who then transported them to Mexico — is false. ATF makes every effort to interdict weapons that have been purchased illegally and prevent their transportation to Mexico.” In November, Attorney General Eric Holder admitted that gun-walking was, in fact, used, and in December the Obama administration formally withdrew Weich’s letter from the congressional record — because it was, in Holder’s words, “inaccurate.”

Operation Fast and Furious would have been bad enough. But the investigation made clear a widespread cover-up.

By that time, Holder had become a figure of particular interest. What did the attorney general know about the operation, and when did he know it? In May 2011, he claimed to have known about gun-walking tactics for only a few weeks. But by October, new documents showed that Holder had been briefed about Operation Fast and Furious as early as July 2010. And in January 2010, just months after the ATF had launched Operation Fast and Furious, personnel from the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force, a multi-agency network run by the Department of Justice, had been brought in to provide additional manpower.

Furthermore, the operation may have had an explicitly political angle. E-mails obtained by CBS News in late 2011 showed ATF officials corresponding about the possibility of using Fast and Furious to push through a regulation requiring gun shops to report the sale of multiple rifles or “long guns.” In other words, the ATF permitted certain gun shops to conduct certain, inadvisable sales to dangerous people and then planned to point to those sales to justify the need for new reporting requirements.

By the summer of 2012, Holder and the House Oversight Committee were at a standoff, the attorney general claiming he had been fully responsive to the committee’s request for documents, Issa claiming that the DOJ had withheld 1,300 key pages. President Obama, intervening, declared that the documents were protected under executive privilege — a risible claim, legally, and a suggestive one, given the White House’s denial of involvement. In late June, at the recommendation of the committee, Holder became the first sitting member of a presidential cabinet to be held in contempt by the House of Representatives.

In September, the administration declared victory. The Department of Justice’s inspector general released a report recommending disciplinary action against 14 federal officials and absolving Holder — seemingly. In fact, the report noted a series of extraordinary coincidences in which, several times in 2010 and 2011, information about the program made it all the way to Holder’s desk — but without the attorney general’s ever managing to pass his eyes over it. Odd, that.

Since then, the investigation into Fast and Furious has been tied up in the courts, where the House challenged the president’s executive-privilege claim.

But the ATF & Co.’s horrendous judgment continues to take a toll. By the time of the House’s contempt vote, some 300 Mexicans had been killed or wounded by Fast and Furious firearms, and that number has surely risen. In December 2013, a walked gun was found at the site of a gunfight at a Mexican resort that left five cartel members dead.

The guns have found their way north, too. A weapon owned by Nadir Soofi, one of the two Muslim terrorists who tried to shoot up Pamela Geller’s “Draw Muhammad” contest in Texas last May, was acquired through Fast and Furious.

The guns have found their way north, too.

It is difficult to overstate both how stupid and how incompetent were the whole host of federal officials involved in this fiasco, who first thought it was a swell idea to traffic thousands of guns to Mexican criminals, then blithely forgot about them. It is difficult, too, to overstate the contempt of this administration for transparency, given that, having made those fatal mistakes, its response was to hide them from a congressional inquiry, going so far as to invoke executive privilege to do so. At best, the operation and its aftermath were an exercise in astonishing malpractice; at worst, the administration knowingly exhibited a reckless disregard for human life — then covered it up.

Under “Operation Fast & Furious,” the U.S. government became a de facto arms dealer to Mexican drug cartels and Islamist criminals.

But this administration still wants to lecture Americans about gun control . . .”

Hillary Offered Deal By Justice Department

Elder Patriot – Hillary Clinton has gotten away with criminal acts so many times that she has come to believe no one can touch her.  That’s the only way to explain why she turned the generous plea bargain offered her by Trump’s Justice Department last July.  That, or she’s so delusional she still thinks she’s going to be president.

According to a report filed in August of 2017 by respected investigative journalist Ed Klein:

“The discussion of a plea bargain took place late last month and was offered by a high-ranking Justice Department official to the Clinton lawyer.

“During the exploratory talks with the prosecutor, the Clinton attorney was told that despite former FBI Director James Comey’s decision last July not to prosecute Hillary, the Justice Department has reexamined the email case and believes there are ample grounds for prosecuting Hillary on a number of counts.

“Under the Justice Department’s plea offer, Hillary would be required to sign a document admitting that she committed a prosecutable crime. In return, the DOJ would agree not to bring charges against Hillary in connection with the email probe.

“Also as part of the agreement, the Justice Department would not proceed with an investigation of Hillary’s pay to play deals with foreign governments and businessmen who contributed to the Clinton Foundation or who paid Bill Clinton exorbitant speaking fees.”

Whether the offer came from a Clinton sympathizer still hiding in the shadows at the DOJ wanting to give a free pass to Hillary, or under orders from President Trump himself looking to end this national nightmare and to avoid what is almost certain to become a constitutional crisis is not known.

What is known is that Hillary Clinton made the wrong decision as evidence of her role in funding and using the Russian dossier and in using the levers available to monetize the trust placed in her as Secretary of State continues mounting.

Hillary was a constitutional crisis waiting to happen.  Thank God that she never became president.  Her hubris is frightening.

More importantly, Hillary’s scorched earth strategy may well result in the end of the modern Democratic Party.

FBI In Hot Water For Conspiracy, Obstruction of Justice, and Contempt Of Court

 

Image result for FBI In Hot Water For Conspiracy, Obstruction of Justice, and Contempt Of Court

The FBI may have violated as many as five criminal statutes.

The federal government acted like criminals during the last administration.

Obama and his flunkies abused their power. Nothing was off the table for these con artists. They even went as far as spying on American citizens in order to protect their agenda.

In many ways, they acted like Communist dictators. If you got in their way, they’d crush you. Even if that meant breaking numerous laws.

Now it looks like some of them will have to face the music. Top officials from that era might be charged for their criminal actions.

From Washington Examiner:

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., informed the Justice Department on Thursday that the FBI may have violated criminal statutes when it sought Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrants to spy on ex-Trump foreign policy adviser Carter Page…

In a letter sent to Sessions, Nunes wrote that the apparent use of the controversial “Trump dossier” to make the case for spying on Page suggests a “clear violation” of FBI protocols because it contained unverified information.

And such a breach of protocol may have violated five criminal statutes, including conspiracy, obstruction of justice, and contempt of court…

Nunes is demanding a response by March 8, in exactly one week. His letter, first obtained by Fox News, shows that FBI Director Christopher Wray and DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz were carbon copied.

The country was stunned by the Nunes memo. He exposed what the DOJ—under Obama—did to thwart the Trump campaign. They used a bogus dossier to get fraudulent surveillance warrants. To boot, they didn’t even disclose to the judges that they were using this dossier.

The charges leveled at them by Nunes are not unfounded. They overstepped their power—limited by law and the Constitution—to go after the Trump campaign.

The dossier was their only “evidence” of collusion with Russia. The dossier did not contain any verifiable facts and has been largely discredited by even liberal journalists.

Yet the FBI and DOJ covered up that inconvenient fact, just to persecute a political rival.

Conspiracy, obstruction of justice, and contempt of court might only be the beginning. If the current DOJ actually investigates this, we might find much more.

But will Sessions do anything?

Will we have to live through the indignity of Mueller’s bogus investigation, while real criminals go free?

I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Breaking: The Justice Department Is Going After The Obama Administration

Image result for Breaking: The Justice Department Is Going After The Obama Administration

The Department of Justice has launched an inquiry into FISA abuse by the Obama administration.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, in an interview with FOX News Channel’s ‘Sunday Morning Futures’ with Maria Bartiromo, promised that there would be an investigation into alleged FISA abuse by the Obama administration during the 2016 election.

“Every FISA warrant based on facts submitted to that court have to be accurate. That will be investigated and looked at,” Sessions said. “I’m not going to talk about the details of it, but I tell you we’re not going to allow that to happen.”

MARIA BARTIROMO: You mentioned lawlessness. There appears to have been a lot of lawlessness going on in government over the last 8 or 10 years, and I want to ask you about the abuses of the FISA Court because any way you look at it appears the FBI and the Department of Justice were abusing their power over the election because they simply did not like Donald Trump. We know that and a number of issues.

Now people wanted you to start handing down justice. Newt Gingrich joined me on this program last Sunday. Here’s what he had to say about that. Listen to this, Mr. Attorney General.

NEWT GINGRICH: He is not in any way recused on this information. He should be appointing an independent counsel. He should be demanding that we get to the bottom of this. I’m totally mystified because he’s a great guy, he’s a solid conservative, he certainly in his career has been a fighter, and this behavior is just totally unlike everything I knew about Jeff Sessions before the last six or eight months.

BARTIROMO: Are you, sir, investigating the fact that the FBI used the dossier to get a wiretap against Trump associates and they did not tell the FISA Court that the Democrats and Hillary Clinton paid for that dossier?

SESSIONS: Let me tell you, every FISA warrant based on facts submitted to that court have to be accurate. That will be investigated and looked at, and we are not going to participate at the Department of Justice in providing anything less than the proper disclosure to the court before they issue a FISA warrant. Other than that, I’m not going to talk about the details of it, but I tell you we’re not going to allow that to happen.

Stay tuned for updates!

Trey Gowdy May Become The Next Supreme Court Justice … Here Is How

Kirsters Baish| Republican South Carolina Representative Trey Gowdy made the announcement on Wednesday that he will not be running for re-election. He has instead decided to make a return to the justice system. While Representative Gowdy is leaving politics and giving up his chairmanship of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, some people have begun to wonder if Gowdy might be able to obtain a more important title. The title? Supreme Court Justice.

In his statement, Gowdy explained “I will not be filing for re-election to Congress nor seeking any other political or elected office. (I)nstead I will be returning to the justice system. Whatever skills I may have are better utilized in a courtroom than in Congress, and I enjoy our justice system more than our political system.”

The very same day that Gowdy made the announcement that he would be leaving Congress and politics in general, a seat on the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals became vacant. Judge Dennis W. Shedd serves in the Richmond, Virginia-based federal court. Shedd took senior status on Wednesday, which means that he is leaving active service, but he will still intervene in some cases.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reported that Shedd’s seat is a part of South Carolina, which may potentially allow President Donald Trump to personally nominate Trey Gowdy to the court.

Gowdy spent timing serving as a state solicitor and a federal prosecutor prior to being elected to Congress. On top of that, people have been buzzing that Gowdy may possibly be a potential nominee to the federal bench. National Review Online’s Dan McLaughlin reported that if Trey Gowdy is to become a federal judge, he might just have a chance at being nominated to the Supreme Court eventually.

McLaughlin stated, “Don’t be surprised if Gowdy is Trump’s pick to replace Shedd for a life-tenured position (and maybe an outside shot someday at the Supreme Court).”

Report: Trump Broke With Justice Department and Called for Release of the Memo

According to The Washington Post, President Donald Trump called for the release of a classified memo allegedly detailing abuses by the U.S. government. Top officials at the Department of Justice warned him that releasing the classified document would be “extraordinarily reckless” if it did not first get an official review.

John Kelly, Trump’s chief of staff, reportedly noted Trump’s desire to see the memo released to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, according to a senior administration official. However, Congress will make the final decision on whether the memo will be released.

The senior administration official stated:

[Trump] is inclined to have that released just because it will shed light. Apparently all the rumors are that it will shed light, it will help the investigators come to a conclusion.

Many lawmakers have made it clear that what’s in the memo is “shocking.”

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) said:

I’m here to tell all of America tonight that I am shocked to read exactly what has taken place. I would think it would never happen in a country that loves freedom and democracy like this country. It is time we become transparent in all of this and I am calling on our leadership to make this available so that all Americans can judge for themselves.

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said:

If you think your viewers want to know whether or not the dossier was used in court proceedings, whether or not it was vetted before it was used, whether or not it’s ever been vetted — if you are interested in who paid for the dossier, if you are interested in Christopher Steele’s relationship with Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, then, yes, you will want the memo to come out.

The House Intelligence Committee voted to allow all members of the House to view the memo. However, senators were not invited to see the memo, according to a report by CNN.

WATCH: COCKY THUG PICKS ON CRIPPLED WHITE BOY – GETS SERVED IMMEDIATE JUSTICE AFTER SEEING WHO’S STANDING RIGHT BEHIND HIM (VIDEO)

cocky thug

A wannabe gangster got himself into a load of trouble after trying to pick a fight with a crippled white boy. His intended victim had a broken right hand, so the smug bully probably thought he was picking an easy target—but after what happened just seconds after he pushed the victim, he won’t be bullying anyone for much longer.

A shocking incident which appears to have taken place in an American high school has been going viral, after a classmate managed to capture it on film. Although it isn’t clear what the backstory is between these two, it appears that the thug was provoking the lone white boy for no reason aside from the fact that he’s white.

As the thug started yelling racial slurs and screaming in the innocent victim’s face, classmates immediately whipped out their phones and began recording—that’s where things got ugly. “I don’t give a f— what you said, if I hear it out your mouth n—- you’re getting popped!” he can be heard yelling.

The racist thug continually provokes the crippled white kid who has seemingly been doing nothing except sitting at his desk—but once the bully realizes his intended victim isn’t going to fight back, he takes things a step further. “Shut the f— up!” he yells, before doing the unthinkable.

As if his angry yelling and cursing weren’t enough, the thug then hocks a loogie and spits it in the victim’s face, again for no apparent reason. The victim quickly stands up, but realizes he’s outgunned—there’s no way he can take on this massive thug when he has a broken right arm.

The thug realizes this and quickly pushes the white boy back into the wall, knowing he won’t be able to defend himself…that’s when things took an unexpected turn for this racist bully. Seemingly out of nowhere, a kid who was stacking books right next to them jumps in and immediately knocks the thug out cold.

So much for his tough behavior. It’s funny how these thugs always act tough, but when it comes down to it, they’re nothing more than cowards—this one was acting cockier than ever when he was confronting a crippled boy, but when a healthy young man punched him in the face, he buckled like a Styrofoam block.

A teacher then comes in afterwards, presumably to stop the incident, but many have been asking where he was during the 25 seconds of verbal abuse and racial slurs being yelled. Is this truly the sad state of our public schools? If so, it’s no surprise that today’s younger generation is so brainwashed.

If you think this thug got what he deserved, please give this article a share by clicking on one of the social media icons below. Thank you and God bless!

Justice Is SERVED! Jeff Sessions Just Gave Obama The Worst News Of His Life – (Details)

The Obama Department of Justice under the authority of Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch needs to go down as a standout amongst the most degenerate justice offices ever — if not the most noticeably awful ever.

All things considered, it would seem that justice may, at last, be served!

In a meeting on the Hugh Hewitt radio show, Attorney General Jeff Sessions indicated that he may delegate an extraordinary prosecutor to investigate Obama’s misuse.

From FreedomDaily.com, here’s a tad bit of what Sessions told Hewitt:

“Well, I’m going to do everything I possibly can to restore the independence and professionalism of the Department of Justice. So we’ll have to consider whether or not some outside counsel is needed. Generally, a good review of that internally is the first step before any such decision is made. “

Obama, Holder and Lynch better expectation that “outside counsel” isn’t required, or it could mean jail time for these Liberal criminals. Here’s only a short summary of the scandals they were included in:

The IRS had a free rule to target Tea Party groups and conservatives for reviews and to hold up their non-benefit status while permitting liberal groups — and SATAN after school clubs to get endorsed instantly.

The activist Black Panthers who remained before the surveying corners in Philadelphia on surveying day and scared white voters without being indicted,

The “fast and furious” weapon running plan that put hazardous firearms under the control of Mexican medication cartels — all with an end goal to make it seem as though we had a weapon issue in this nation so they could make a noteworthy push to seize our guns

Holder and his office attempting to begin a race war in Ferguson and different urban communities.

Loretta Lynch’s devious meeting of Bill Clinton on her plane just before the election.

Also, these are quite recently a portion of the ones we think about!

Here’s the entire interview so you can hear it for yourself:

Browns Just Got Devastating News From Ohio Supreme Court Justice After Players Continued To Protest

When even Democrats start speaking out against a so-called protest you know you’re on the losing side.

Justice Bill O’Neill of the Ohio State Supreme Court posted a heated Facebook status Tuesday in response to the failed unemployed 49er’s quarterback Colin Kaepernick and the 12 Cleveland Browns players who took it upon themselves to join Kaepernick by protesting the national anthem during an August preseason game.

Judge O’neil’s post, which has since been taken down, stated that we will not pay to witness the disrespect of the American flag. And he added that you have freedom of speech but I also have the freedom of not paying $75 to listen to you. And if freedom of speech is so clear here, why not burn the flag on the 50-yard line.

He later went on to write, “Congratulations Cleveland Browns on your win. Unfortunately, my season ended last night. I will NEVER attend a sporting event where the draft dodging millionaire athletes disrespect the veterans who earned them the right to be on that field. Shame on you all. William O’Neill, LTC, US Army, Retired. Vietnam veteran; son of a World II veteran; proud father of an Iraq veteran.” Good for him!

The New York Times Reports:

Maybe Colin Kaepernick Is Just Not That Good

Whether or not Colin Kaepernick plays another down in the N.F.L., I’m going to say that he can achieve more off a football field than he — or anyone else in the sport — can achieve on one.

Football, in the larger scheme of things, is not that important. Kaepernick, meanwhile, has a message about crucial aspects of our frayed but hopefully repairable nation that will continue to grow. If he has the devotion to work for change, he could outclass Tom Brady, or any player you might name, as someone who did something that truly matters for future generations.

But I thought it might be useful to at least consider something. The conventional wisdom is that Kaepernick, who opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers after last season and has yet to be signed by another team, does not have an N.F.L. job on account of his politics. In protest against racism and police brutality, he won’t stand for the national anthem, and he’s increasingly outspoken on social issues. Earlier this summer in a tweet he likened the police to members of the fugitive slave patrol. N.F.L. owners, the thinking goes, must be racists who don’t like his politics — or cynical pragmatists who don’t like that their racist fans don’t like his politics.

What seems to me more problematic than Kaepernick’s not having a job is the general unwillingness to consider that this situation might be justified on the merits, given Kaepernick’s current attributes, or lack thereof, as a quarterback, rather than assuming, as part of a kneejerk gospel of victimhood, that persecution must be the cause.

It’s not hard to make a statistical case for why Kaepernick is not playing now. He threw for a mere 187 yards a game last season, which was good enough for 30th (in a league of 32 teams). For his career, he has completed fewer than 60 percent of his passes. Last season, 24 passers completed more than 60 percent. Kaepernick, at 59.2 percent, was ranked 26th. If you’re below 60 percent, you’re a fringe guy.

Every weekday, get thought-provoking commentary from Op-Ed columnists, the Times editorial board and contributing writers from around the world.

More damning, Kaepernick was not asked to make difficult throws; he’s not a Matt Ryan-type quarterback, slinging the ball far down the field on deep crosses or challenging out routes. In the current iteration of the N.F.L., offense rules the day, with quarterbacks tasked to put up crooked numbers on the scoreboard. Kaepernick’s job was to be a game manager, making the easiest, high-percentage throws. And he still struggled. What are you supposed to do with a guy like this? What can he do for you? Can he help you win?

If Kaepernick deserves a spot in the league, it’s only as a backup quarterback. And he will eventually get a job as one, I bet, once quarterbacks start getting hurt. But the fact that he doesn’t have a job right now isn’t shocking, and it doesn’t have to be because N.F.L. owners are racists who are blackballing him.

The older I get, the less I care about football, but I do care about merit, and things being seen for what they are. “Life is,” as Dostoyevsky wrote, and it is our job to figure out what the “is” is. I believe that’s one of the core responsibilities of being human.

We don’t do this enough anymore. We don’t ask the tough questions. We seek to align ourselves with what I think of as the “control voice” — whatever piped-in monotone is dictating a given narrative at the moment. It’s easy to feel good about yourself when you’re patting yourself on the back for your inability to never fail to take the moral high ground, which everyone who agrees with you reinforces and enables, one Facebook “like” at a time. But there is nothing real about that.

It doesn’t matter that Kaepernick doesn’t have a job; it matters that so few people even wonder if there might be a non-disgraceful explanation. We have become the anti-meritocracy. We resent those who outperform us, outwork us, outproduce us. And the person who has been perceived to have been slighted? He is whom we now adore.

I’d like to see Kaepernick get a job, because I find him interesting, and I’d like to see if he can solve the flaws in his game as he nears 30. But I’d like even more to see all of us challenge ourselves more, in ways that are more important to the world, and to ourselves, than whether or not someone gets a job taking an ill-advised sack, or throwing the ball out of bounds so he can live to play another down.

The writer is correct, he really isn’t good at all. 

The fact that NFL viewership is falling fast because of this garbage gives us hope that people really do care, People are pushing back against these spoiled rich ball throwers. The only way this asinine so-called protests will end for good is when the NFL gathers enough nerves to say “enough” and starts hitting these thugs where it hurts, their bank accounts. “You don’t stand, you don’t get paid.” It’s simple, if they don’t like it, they can go play ball in Iran where they hate the US as much as these spoiled millionaires do. Just like the NFL doesn’t let its employees wear, or display, unapproved logos during games, they can tell these rich spoiled ingrates to stand the hell up for our national anthem and stop disrespecting our great nation and everything she, and us, stand for and hold dear.

Please share if you agree the NFL needs to be boycotted until they put an end to this disrespect of our flag….
