Vonn Blames TRUMP For Her First Olympic Loss In 8 Yrs, Then Is Immediately Handed MORE Bad News

Olympic downhill skier Lindsey Vonn went into the 2018 winter games with a massive chip on her shoulder for President Donald Trump. She made this known on multiple occasions through public verbal attacks toward him, including announcing that she wasn’t representing him at the Olympics, despite being on Team USA. She wore her anti-Trump attitude proud, even incorporating her hate into a custom ski uniform to compete in as “Captain America,” which had a subliminal message that she’s the captain of this country, not Trump.

Vonn was the frontrunner in her sport, having won eight Olympics in a row and going into this one with the same expectation. After spending months of her preparation time spewing divisive message about our president and proving herself to be a loser, she suffered a catastrophic loss in South Korea yesterday. Rather than coming out as the winner, she came in fifth place and realized she was the latest victim of the “Trump Curse.”

The only person Vonn can blame is herself for promoting hate and negativity and bringing that to the slopes which resulted in exactly what results from that kind of mindset. She also chose to ignore the impact that an openly anti-Trump attitude has on athletes by partnering with the NFL who just experienced fan and revenue loss in devastating proportion for this same reason, rather than realizing the same would happen to her. Trashing the president always proves end badly for public people and that’s not Trump’s fault.

Vonn’s first loss coming on the heels of her disrespect and divisiveness is no coincidence. However, just as she was learning of her massive failure in fifth place, she was handed more bad news.

The reality of having lost had to have been a tough one for the ego-centric athlete, but who won the gold in the Super-G race instead of Vonn, makes her failure even better. Beating her at her own sport was the new gold medalist who isn’t even a skier but decided to give it a try. Ester Ledecka from the Czech Republic didn’t even have a pair of skis in South Korea and had to borrow a friend’s when she entered into the Super-G race against Vonn…and ultimately took the gold medal from her.

 The Guardian reports of what’s being considered the “biggest upset” in the 2018 Winter Olympics:Ester Ledecka, the world champion snowboarder from the Czech Republic, delivered one of the biggest upsets in Winter Olympics history on Saturday afternoon, coming out of nowhere to win the women’s super-G by the slimmest of margins as Lindsey Vonn failed to deliver an expected medal in her opening race of the Pyeongchang Games.

Ledecka, who is the first ever athlete to compete in both skiing and snowboarding at the Olympics, finished with a winning time of 1min 21.12sec to pip Austria’s Anna Veith by one-hundredth of a second. Tina Weirather of Liechtenstein, who finished 0.11sec off the pace, won the bronze.

“Until today,” Ledecka said, “I thought I was a better snowboarder.”

Veith, the defending Olympic champion in the super-G, was in first after the top 20 racers had completed their runs with a successful defense of her Sochi title all but assured. Indeed, NBC had already named her as the winner before Ledecka’s run and later had to apologize.

The incredible defeat proves that what Vonn is experiencing is a massive case of the “Trump Curse” which everyone back at home in America was quick to “congratulate” her on.

KSDK reports:

Team USA athletes who have expressed their personal displeasure for President Donald Trump are receiving hateful Tweets, and viewers at home in the United States are telling them they’ve fallen victim to the “Trump curse.”

As USA TODAY first pointed out, Lindsey Vonn received numerous Tweets after stumbling near the finish line at the women’s super-G. The defending bronze medalist finished in fifth place.

Many of the viewers on social media didn’t mourn the disappointing performance by Team USA, nor did they try to console Vonn. Instead, they laughed. They poked fun. They said she fell victim to the ‘Trump curse.’


Before the games, Vonn told CNN she would not visit the White House if she were invited. In addition, she said she was going to the games to represent the people of the United States but not the president. That angered Trump’s support base.

Several athletes have fallen victim to the “curse,” according to social media.

Adam Rippon, who finished tenth in men’s figure skating, has allegedly fallen victim to it after criticizing the selection of Vice President Mike Pence to lead the U.S. Olympic delegation. Rippon is an openly-gay man and said Pence supports gay conversion therapy.

You don’t have to like who is in the White House or have voted for him, but sports is no place for politics. Americans have proven without a shadow of a doubt that they don’t appreciate athletes ruining their sports and entertainment with offensive messages about our country and Commander-in-Chief.


NBC’s Katie Couric Just Spread Fake News Story That Has the Whole World Laughing at Her

It’s not only on the topic of President Trump that the mainstream media engages in fake news.

They’re so desperate to regain an audience, that outlets like NBC will say just about anything, regardless of whether or not it’s true.

Such was the case when NBC’s biggest star, Katie Couric, decided to opine, live on air, about why athletes from The Netherlands win so many Olympic medals in speed skating.

In her report, Couric said:

“It is probably not a news flash to tell you the Dutch are really, really good at speed skating. All but five of the 110 medals they’ve won have been on the speed skating oval. Now, ‘Why are they so good?’ you may be asking yourselves. Because skating is an important mode of transportation in a city like Amsterdam which sits at sea level. As you all know, it has lots of canals that can freeze in the winters. So, for as long as those canals have existed, the Dutch have skated on them to get from place to place, to race each other, and also to have fun.”

This, of course, is ludicrous.

While the big canals in cities like Amsterdam do sometimes freeze, and when they do local Dutch do skate on them, it is a very rare occurrence.

And, on those rare and short-lived occasions, the Dutch are NOT using the canals as skating roadways to their jobs.

Indeed, if it’s cold enough for the canals to actually freeze (they’re rather large and deep bodies of water, so don’t freeze easily), most folks probably have the day off work.

At any rate, it was an enormous and hilarious mistake, and Dutch Twitter users couldn’t stop making fun of Couric and the fake news that today permeates America.


Donald Trump Jr. — ‘Disgusting’ How People Reacted To News My Wife Had Been Hospitalized

Authorities are reportedly investigating a package containing a suspicious substance Donald Trump Jr. received at his New York City residence, and the president’s eldest son delivered choice words to those cheering the news on social media.

Don Jr’s wife, Vanessa Trump, was at the apartment at the time of delivery and opened the package, and she was one of three people hospitalized as a precaution to the incident.

Though most people reacted appropriately to the scare, plenty did not, and Trump took notice.

“Thankful that Vanessa & my children are safe and unharmed after the incredibly scary situation that occurred this morning,” he tweeted. “Truly disgusting that certain individuals choose to express their opposing views with such disturbing behavior.”

Authorities have not yet released what substance the Trump’s received. So far, none of the three individuals hospitalized in relation to the incident have dealt with any health issues.

WHOA! Every US Olympian Just Hit With NASTY News From Officials Overnight – It’s OVER!

It’s only been two days since the kick off of the 2018 Winter Olympics but it already over for Team USA and not because of their lack of medals to bring home. The games took off with a really disturbing start on multiple levels, from athletes publicly slamming our administration, to the Olympic Committee making sure awards are not based on merit, but diversity in skin color and sexual orientation. Now, only the Olympians on Team USA were just blindsided by more bad news. No sooner did the games begin, which these athletes have worked years to get to, they find out it’s over – for some even before they even had a chance to compete.

The Olympics is supposed to be about good sportsmanship, an impressive level of achievement. Athletes who have made it to this point did so through their own hard work and dedication to the sport – they weren’t selected to be there by affirmative action. The only thing that got one competitor or team of competitors in the door, was having worked harder than those they were up against. Sheer determination and skill level, not race, has put the best of the best athletes up against each other, just how it should be.

However, it seems that many on Team USA have been poisoned by the Barack Obama era and set the tone of racism, entitlement, and total divisiveness before they even got to South Korea to compete. It only got worse once they arrived and had attention from the world’s stage. That’s when US speedskater Shani Davis declared a totally fair coin toss racist since he wasn’t picked to carry the American flag. Gay Figure skater and medal winner Adam Rippon continued his spread of false claims and extreme hate for Vice President Mike Pence who was there to show his support for him. Downhill skier Lindsey Vonn’s also continues to discredit our president, declaring herself as “Captain America,” not Trump.

Coming fresh off the heels of the worst season of America’s former favorite sport, these Olympic athletes should have taken note of what mixing divisive opinions into sports does. The NFL may never recover from having done that and now Team USA is feeling the burn for themselves. Americans are fed-up with this abuse of a public platform and entitled athletes souring an enjoyable past time with their opinions. People are proving that watching the sports isn’t important to them and have found better things to do with their time.

Like the NFL, the Olympics has suffered a devastating drop in ratings from Americans not watching their team of Olympians compete. This is unfortunate for the innocent athletes who didn’t go to South Korea with any agenda other than winning. A few hateful competitors ruined it for everyone who isn’t getting the support from back home now since citizens aren’t tuning in to take part of what the racist, anti-Christian, and Trump-bashing athletes are doing and saying.

Breitbart reports:

Ratings for the Winter Olympics opening ceremony and the first few days of broadcasts are in, and the results are not good news for NBC as ratings have fallen significantly from four years ago.

The numbers show that the opening ceremonies for the PyeongChang, South Korea, Winter Games saw a ratings dip over the 2014 games in Sochi, Russia. “Viewership for the PyeongChang Opening Ceremony was down over 10% compared to Sochi’s Opening Ceremony. The number of viewers dropped from 31.7 viewers to 28.3 viewers according to Deadline,” Awful Announcing reported.

“These numbers come off another dip from the Sochi games on the night before the Opening Ceremony. Those ratings from the first night of the PyeongChang Games were down a whopping 22% compared to four years ago.”

This means that ratings are going to have to improve over the next two weeks as the games continue if NBC is to reach its viewership goals. But that is not generally seen historically. In general, ratings fall from the opening ceremony to the closing days as the high profile competitions finish and the viewers tire of the coverage.

Perhaps it’s even more than just the divisive athletes who have ruined the games. The genuine level of competition has almost been destroyed by the US Olympic Committee who is more concerned about diversity and giving awards out to fewer white people as to promote fairness and equality.

Whatever happened to diversity being among people’s skill level and picking from that? It’s the entire purpose of the Olympics anyway which has now been made dull under this liberal agenda of fairness. It’s no longer enjoyable to watch when competitors are spewing hate anyway and the winners weren’t actually the best at their sport, just the right sexual orientation or race. It’s not even a competition at this point, it’s just a ribbon ceremony where everyone gets a participation prize and whiny athletes get all the attention for the wrong reasons.


Game Changer ?! Ruth Ginsburg Gets Devastating News, Federal Law Requires …

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg confronts calls from many corners to recuse herself from the high court’s considerations of President Donald Trump’s brief travel ban order, given her expressed animus toward the CEO.

The Supreme Court set Monday, June 12, as the due date for challenges to the travel ban to present their reactions. The Trump organization has asked for sped up procedures for the situation, which means a decision to lift or keep set up a Fourth Circuit order blocking implementation of the request could happen moderately soon.

Ginsburg was an extremely vocal adversary of Trump’s presidential candidacy, slandering him in the media on various events the previous summer.

“He is a faker. He has no consistency about him, “she told CNN last July. “He says whatever comes into his head at the moment. He really has an ego. How has he gotten away with not turning over his tax returns? ”

At the point when asked by The Associated Press how the Supreme Court may be influenced by a Trump administration, she stated:  “I do not want to think about that possibility, but if it should be, then everything is up for grabs.”

Days later Ginsburg told The New York Times, “I can not imagine what this place would be – I can not imagine what the country would be – with Donald Trump as our president.”

She included that the possibility of Trump as president helped her to remember something her late spouse used to state: “Now it’s time for us to move to New Zealand.”

Gregg Jarrett in a piece for Fox News notes that federal law requires that “[a] ny justice … shall disqualify himself [or herself] in any proceeding in which his impartiality might reasonably be questioned. He shall also disqualify himself … where he has a personal bias or prejudice concerning a party. ”

Moreover, lawyer David Weisberg in an opinion piece distributed in The Hill on Monday composes that the legal Code of Conduct is clear in regards to Ginsburg’s hostile to Trump articulations and her need to recuse herself in the travel ban case.

The code expresses that a judge ought not “publicly endorse or oppose a candidate for public office.”

The code further states that “[a] judge … should act at all times in a manner that promotes public confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary.”

On July 13 The New York Times editorial board rebuked Ginsburg after her arrangement of hostile to Trump comments, expressing that “Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg needs to drop the political punditry and the name-calling.”

After a day, Ginsburg issued an announcement:

“On reflection, my recent remarks in response to press inquiries were ill-advised, and I regret making them. Judges should avoid commenting on a candidate for public office. In the future I will be more circumspect. ”

The previous fall liberal Harvard law educator Allen Dershowitz said that Ginsburg ought to recuse herself from all cases including President Trump, given her past explanations.

Jarrett finishes up his opinion piece, “The noble traditions of the Supreme Court will be compromised should Ruth Bader Ginsburg decide she is above the law and beyond the scruples it demands.”

BOOM! 24Hrs After FISA Abuse Memo Drops, Special Counsel Robert Mueller Gets Bad News

Special Counsel Robert Mueller receives some bad news after the House Intelligence Committee has finally released the FISA abuse memo.

American people are furious after the details contained in the memo hit the headlines, because they  prove that Mueller’s nonsense investigation into the Trump-Russia collusion were nothing more than a skillful attack on President Trump.

Mueller is now receiving a blow after blow, and not just from American patriots. Even Congress members took it to Twitter to question his involvement in the corruption. Some are even discussing his removal.

Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC), shared a tweet on his account urging people that now Mueller’s part in the scandal needs to be investigated and his work needs to be evaluated, to see whether or not his services are needed.

Duncan stated : “Finally, there needs to be a discussion as to whether the Mueller investigation is truly needed, seeing that the main premise that launched the investigation turned out to not be credible and was both directed and funded by political opponents. #FISAMemo,”

The answer to his statement is obvious. No. Of course that Mueller is no longer needed. And not only that, maybe a wise thing to do here would be to place him under house arrest until his trial begins. He plotted against the President, together with his fellow schemers James Comey, Rod Rosenstein, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and for that he deserves to be punished.

One angry Twitter user also lashed out at Mueller when he responded to Senator Duncan’s tweet,writing, “Mueller better be investigating Clinton and Obama, not Trump. They paid Russian sources for false info to abuse US Intelligence services to perpetrate a fraud on the American people and frame a duly elected President.”

This investigation was supposed to investigate people who committed a crime against Americans, not to go on a witch hunt against the president.

Many other infuriated Twitter users responded to Rep. Jeff Duncan’s tweet by showering it with angry remarks, aimed at Mueller.

A Twitter user by the name Will Morgan wrote, “Mueller’s conflicts of interest are staggering. This investigation has crossed the line from witch hunt to participation in a Seditious Conspiracy to subvert the will of the People. We should Demand a Special Counsel be created to investigate this.”

Yet another one, named “LUVFORUSA” stated, “#EndTheWitchHunt this is [an] abuse of power by Corrupt criminal Top FBI officials along with Obama administration & Clinton! Equal Justice Under The Law #LockThemUP.”

By all means, Mueller’s foolish investigation needs to end and all those who were engaging in this misconduct should be prosecuted.

A Twitter user named Sophie wrote, “Fruit of the Poisonous Tree time to end this charade and stop wasting our time & $$$ they still have NOT ONE IOTA of proof bc there was NEVER anything to find.This was all a hoax, a coup def one for the history books.”


Here word’s cannot be denied. It’s about time that these anti-Trump operatives answer for their crimes. Their bogus investigation has wasted a ton of taxpayer money, and Mueller hasn’t managed to find a single piece of evidence against Trump.

Nevertheless, now the game is over. Both the DOJ and the FBI have some serious explaining to do now that the whole nation is aware of their level of corruption.

It is of vital importance now, that Congress does its job and back President Donald Trump to fire both Robert Mueller and the man who appointed him, Rod Rosenstein.



As most everyone knows by now the infamous FISA memo written by Congressman Devin Nunes from California was finally released this morning. And it confirms what must of us already knew. Hillary Clinton paid former British spy Christopher Steele to prepare the fake “Trump Dossier,” and then this fictitious document was used by Obama’s Justice Department to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant in order to spy on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

To sum up this whole mess, the people who colluded with the Russians wasn’t Trump and his campaign; it was the Democrat party, Hillary Clinton, and former President Barack Hussein Obama. So now that it’s been confirmed that the Democrats are in trouble enters the RINO Senator John McCain from Arizona. And as we suspected he didn’t condemn the illegal and unethical behavior of Hillary, Obama or the FBI. He instead came out to condemn the Republican Party for releasing the memo by accusing them of doing Putin’s bidding. Keep in mind there has been very credible evidence that McCain is the one who picked up the Dossier and handed it over to the Democrat party.

Later today, Senator John McCain chimed in.

Via McCain.senate.gov:

Washington, D.C. ­– U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ), Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, released the following statement on partisan attacks on the FBI and Department of Justice:

“In 2016, the Russian government engaged in an elaborate plot to interfere in an American election and undermine our democracy. Russia employed the same tactics it has used to influence elections around the world, from France and Germany to Ukraine, Montenegro, and beyond. Putin’s regime launched cyberattacks and spread disinformation with the goal of sowing chaos and weakening faith in our institutions. And while we have no evidence that these efforts affected the outcome of our election, I fear they succeeded in fueling political discord and dividing us from one another.

“The latest attacks on the FBI and Department of Justice serve no American interests – no party’s, no president’s, only Putin’s. The American people deserve to know all of the facts surrounding Russia’s ongoing efforts to subvert our democracy, which is why Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation must proceed unimpeded. Our nation’s elected officials, including the president, must stop looking at this investigation through the warped lens of politics and manufacturing partisan sideshows. If we continue to undermine our own rule of law, we are doing Putin’s job for him.”


Via WND:

“Sen. McCain recently wrote a scathing column for the Washington Post attacking President Donald Trump as “poorly informed” and “impulsive.” McCain stated, “We are not his subordinates. … we don’t answer to him.”

The Arizona senator also called for compromise on a litany of important items, including on Trump’s campaign promise to build a “big, beautiful wall.” McCain wrote that “a literal wall might not be the most effective means” to secure the border. Instead, he wants a “comprehensive” bill Democrats can get behind.

John McCain is losing it! Or, perhaps this is the real McCain finally coming out. During his 30 years in the Senate, McCain has fooled the public and pretended to be a conservative Republican. The fake news media have depicted him as a “maverick” who isn’t afraid to stand up to his own party. But McCain has always been a RINO, and he is not an honorable man. The election of President Trump is exposing his true nature and lack of character.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said he had been in constant contact with McCain leading up to the betrayal vote.

Order Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson’s book, “The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame, and Victimhood.”

McCain has also attacked Trump over the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. He condemned the president for his statement, even though Trump’s initial statement disavowing hate and violence “on many sides” was spot on. That didn’t stop McCain.

He tweeted: “There’s no moral equivalency between racists and Americans standing up to defy hate & bigotry. The president of the United States should say so.”

According to McCain, the true Americans are Antifa and Black Lives Matter, the people who started and escalated the violence.

McCain also had the audacity to attack Trump for pardoning legendary Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio – who is beloved by the people of Arizona. Everyone knows the investigation into Sheriff Joe was a political witch hunt by Obama cronies in the Department of Justice. They wanted to make an example of the sheriff for supporting Trump and for enforcing immigration laws. McCain knows this, but his judgment is clouded by his anger toward Trump.

McCain is the consummate compromiser. According to the Arizona Republic, McCain reportedly spoke to Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer about joining forces again to pass the “Gang of Eight” bill – an awful, far-reaching 2013 bill that offered amnesty and citizenship to illegal aliens.

McCain was nowhere to be found while conservatives organized under the tea-party banner to fight Barack Obama’s out-of-control spending and attack on the Constitution. McCain referred to tea-party supporters as “hobbits”!

With his unrelenting attack against Trump, McCain is revealing himself, and he doesn’t even realize it.

We have a great president who is working hard to make “America Great Again,” and this cowardly RINO is fighting against him and against the good people in this country. Arizonans, I blame you, because you had a chance to get rid of this man, but you voted for him over and over again.

I recall when John McCain spoke in Southern California in 2008 during his presidential run against Obama. I thought he was a good guy. I voted for him because he presented himself as a conservative who loved his country and the military – I didn’t know he was a RINO!

We the people must be aware and remain vigilant so, when we vote in 2018 and beyond, we elect real conservatives. We need to stand back and pay attention to what’s going on so we are not deceived. The betrayal by John McCain and other RINOs is an opportunity to wake up and change so we don’t repeat the same mistakes.

John McCain betrayed Donald Trump and the American people”

Let’s be honest here. All these rats like Senator McCain are trying to cover their rear ends by deflecting away from the real people who should go to prison over this. John McCain taking the GOP to task over releasing the evidence that our government, led by our them president, used a knowingly fake document in order to get a surveillance order on a private American Citizen is just another one of this RINOs diversions.

To put this into perspective, Watergate was like stealing a candy bar from the local 7/11 compared to what went down here. And of course, RINO McLame comes out on the wrong side of history. Wouldn’t it be great to see all the people involved behind bars? Even McCain?


BREAKING News From Atlanta!! TRUMP Was On The Field When It HAPPENED!

President Donald Trump was greeted by a booming chorus of cheers mixed with a few boos (according to liberals) as he took the field Monday for the singing of our nation’s national anthem ahead of the college football title game between Georgia and Alabama.

The president, who was surrounded by military personnel stood near the 40-yard line with his hand on his heart as the anthem played on. Another wave of cheers and some jeers followed him as he left the field.

It was reported that the President arrived in Atlanta around 6 p.m. local time to attend the all-Southeastern Conference matchup between the two NCAA powerhouses. His motorcade caused gridlock, some confusion, and long lines outside the sold-out stadium but most of the fans didn’t mind and were happy to see the President in attendance.

Before arriving in Atlanta, President Trump took the time to once again criticize the ungrateful ball tossers who refuse to stand during the presenting of our nation’s colors and the national anthem. He also told attendees at an agriculture meeting in Tennessee earlier today that “we love our flag and we love our anthem and we want to keep it that way.” He added to thunderous applause: “We want our national anthem respected, too.”

The remarks came at an appearance at the American Farm Bureau Federation’s annual meeting in Nashville, which he attended with U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue. The president attended the game with Perdue, a former Georgia governor who was a former Bulldogs football player, and Nick Ayers, a Georgia native and top aide to Vice President Mike Pence.

Because controversies — and politics — are taking their toll on America’s most popular sport.

It remains a $14 billion business with a central space in American life, but temblors of controversy have shaken the National Football League in recent years. This season, serious cracks have appeared in its foundation as it became the focus of divisive racial politics. Players’ silent demonstrations during the national anthem to protest the mistreatment of Blacks by law enforcement surged after President Donald Trump described a protesting player as a “son of a bitch.” Meanwhile, no team has hired protest-instigating quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Amid a hot-take fest about patriotism, people on both sides of the aisle have called for a boycott of the NFL. An exclusive SurveyMonkey and OZY poll reveals that the movement has caught on:


Those who sat out had multiple motivations, but the most common one: “in support of Donald Trump,” a reason given by 32 percent of surveyed boycotters. Another 22 percent said they stopped watching or attending in solidarity with players kneeling during the anthem, 13 percent had no interest in the teams playing, 12 percent acted in solidarity with Kaepernick, 11 percent were troubled by the devastating long-term effects of traumatic brain injuries on players and 8 percent said the games were boring. Another 46 percent chose “other” as their reason for boycotting, with replies specifying the national anthem, the American flag and opposing players’ kneeling. (Respondents were allowed to give more than one reason for boycotting.)

This SurveyMonkey/OZY online survey was conducted Dec. 8–11 among a national sample of 1,726 adults ages 18 and older, including 1,223 people who said they are football fans or watch the Super Bowl. Respondents were selected from the nearly 3 million people who take surveys on the SurveyMonkey platform each day. Data has been weighted for age, race, sex, education and geography using census data to reflect the demographic composition of the United States. The modeled error estimate for this survey is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points. The full results can be found here, and cross-tabs can be viewed here.

The protests had a sharp gender split. Men were more likely than women to boycott the NFL overall (39 percent to 26 percent) and more likely to do it to back Trump (35 percent to 25 percent), while women were more likely to opt out in solidarity with kneeling players (30 percent to 17 percent).

OZY and SurveyMonkey also probed views about taxpayer-funded stadiums, an issue that helped spark two recent franchise moves. When taxpayers would not help foot the bill for new football palaces in St. Louis and San Diego, both the Rams and the Chargers, respectively, departed for Los Angeles. People across the country side with St. Louis and San Diego: 70 percent of respondents oppose taxpayer subsidies for stadiums, including 46 percent who strongly oppose them. Only 6 percent strongly support subsidies. But support rises among superfans: 43 percent of those who identify as big football fans back publicly financed stadiums.

On television the NFL has slipped, but not dramatically. Jon Lewis, founder and editor of the website Sports Media Watch, says the ratings are generally mediocre, and the highs are not as high as in recent years. “These are not necessarily bad ratings,” Lewis says. “I haven’t seen any numbers that would say, ‘Oh, my goodness, the NFL is free-falling.’” While Lewis says the league’s top sports competitors, Major League Baseball and the National Basketball Association, had a strong fall, nonsports ratings are plunging in the age of Netflix and cord cutting. NFL games still cram the roster of the most-watched TV programs each week — a critical metric for advertisers.

Paid attendance has been down slightly — the Sports Business Journal reported a 2.5 percent decline through Week 12 — but television cameras have captured abysmal in-game turnout in several stadiums, an indication that many presold season tickets are going unused.

The effect of the fan boycott might be more a softening than a cratering of support. Consider the case of Chip Lake, who lives outside Atlanta. He’s still an NFL fan and fantasy football obsessive. But for the first time in about 15 years, he didn’t attend a Falcons game. “I didn’t want to spend my money in a stadium and watch people disrespect the national anthem,” Lake says. “I don’t know consciously that I sat down before Week 1 and said, ‘I’m boycotting the Atlanta Falcons’ … I just didn’t make it a priority to go.”

Although some ball tossers and one rapper voiced their displeasure at President Trump at the game, for who knows what reason, not one of them had the guts to kneel during our national anthem. Which goes a long way in showing just how powerful the presence of President Trump really is.

Please share if you continue to boycott the ball tossers in the NFL…



Wikileaks has over a 1-year record of 100 percent accuracy, so when the organization makes a claim, people should listen.

Last year, speculation was abound that Wikileaks’ source for the “hacked” emails from John Podesta and the DNC was none other than murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich, who was mercilessly gunned down from behind in a “botched robber,” although nothing was missing from his body. Wikileaks’ found Julian Assange further fueled speculation during an interview on Dutch TV when he mentioned Rich while speaking about how dangerous it is to be a whistleblower.

The interview came shortly after Wikileaks offered a $20,000 reward for information leading to Rich’s murder.

“Whistleblowers go to significant efforts to get us material and often significant risks. There was a 27-year old that works for the DNC who was shot in the back… murdered.. for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington,” Assange said during the interview. Assange was then asked if he was suggesting Rich was involved, and he stated that “we have to understand how high the stakes are in the United States and that our sources face serious risks… that’s why they come to us so we can protect their anonymity.”

It’s also worth noting that notorious hacker Kim Dotcom has also stated that he knew Rich personally, and that Rich was the source for the leaked emails.

Now, there’s a new twist in the story.

On Monday, Donald Trump, Jr. released a direct message chain between him and Wikileaks during the summer of last year. In it, there’s a link to a website that Wikileaks had wanted then-candidate Donald Trump to plug if he were to mention Wikileaks.

The web address is http://wlsearch.tk/. At the time, according to a tweet from Wikileaks, the link took web users to “The Podesta Emails Part 4 (1193 new emails).” However, the website has since been edited to be something else entirely – it appears to confirm that Rich was the source for the emails Wikileaks published.

The website has a clock as the banner, and consists of only one page, which reads the following, in part [emphasis mine]:

You finally found me! I’m the source of the John Podesta/DNC Email hacks. I’ve been waiting so long for you to join me.

Thanks to Wikileaks and Trump Jr you’ll all soon know why Hillary Clinton and John Podesta had me killed.

As you can see I’m no Russian agent. I was just a proud DNC staffer who believed in the system until I found out Hillary Clinton and the DNC rigged the primaries against my candidate Bernie Sanders. That’s when I decided to take action and release these emails to Wikileaks.

John Podesta was determined to make an example out of me and had me taken care of. Why did you think they didn’t let the FBI examine the DNC servers? Yep, those servers would have lead them straight to me. John couldn’t let that happen.

The last paragraph seen on the website reads, “Thanks again Wikileaks for upping my reward to solve my murder. I wonder why you’d do that for me? Oh, you are trying to tell the world I was your source. Whoops cat’s outta the bag now.”

It would seem as if Wikileaks edited their website in the wake of Don, Jr. publishing their email chain to reveal that Rich was their source. Of course, without Assange or Wikileaks directly verifying it, we’ll never know for certain; however, it’s hard to imagine Wikileaks, which survives off of hacking and unauthorized entry into computers, would allow itself to be hacked in such a manner.


Bill Clinton Gets Horrific News, He Deserves This

With the numerous allegations of sexual harassment following the Harvey Weinstein revelations, others have been caught up in scandals of their own.

According to The Daily Caller, the media has made a surprising move. They’ve decided to address the numerous sexual harassment allegations facing former President Bill Clinton.

The bold accusations from supposed victims of sexual harassment has inspired others to come forward with their own stories, encouraged by the acknowledgment and attention others have received.

Alleged victims of former President Clinton’s advances have found themselves going unheard and unacknowledged given the power and influence he held. Now that he and Hillary Clinton have lost some of their political might after the failed 2016 election, and in the wake of other accusations, some journalists and members of the media are finally putting a light on their stories.

Most prominent among the accusations leveled at Mr. Clinton comes from Paula Jones, Kathleen Wiley, and Juanita Broaddrick. Women who have long fought for their voices to be heard and the crimes against them acknowledged, only to be silenced by the Democrat Party or Mrs. Clinton.

Paula Jones said she was harassed by Mr. Clinton at a hotel room in Arkansas where she worked. Apparently, Mr. Clinton had made numerous, albeit unsuccessful, advances towards her before he exposed himself and solicited oral sex.

Kathleen Wiley says Mr. Clinton had made numerous advances to her and groped her a number of times within the Oval Office — a place where he infamously received oral sex from the young intern, Monica Lewinsky.

As bad as these allegations are, the worst comes from Juanita Broaddrick, who says she was raped by Mr. Clinton while he was serving as Arkansas’s Attorney General. On Twitter in early 2016, she stated, “I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73….it never goes away.”

All three women’s stories have been disregarded and ignored by the media. Following the many other allegations against notable individuals, some have decided to revisit their stories.

MSNBC host, Chris Hayes, said on Friday “…that Democrats and the center left are overdue for a real reckoning with the allegations against [Bill Clinton]”

Editor of The Atlantic, Caitlin Flanagan, wrote an article titled “Bill Clinton: A Reckoning” where she stated that those individuals who defended Mr. Clinton were “on the wrong side of history.” She also said that “The Democratic Party needs to make its own reckoning of the way it protected Bill Clinton,” particularly attacking feminists who were quick to defend Mr. Clinton and reject the allegations.

The sudden support and acknowledgment of these accusations from members of the media have left Juanita Broaddrick stunned. On Monday she posted on Twitter, “New York Times opinion ‘I Believe Juanita’. Hell has definitely frozen over.”

Now that the drama of the 2016 elections has finally settled and sexual harassers are being held accountable for their crimes, perhaps these women can finally have their stories heard fairly without political agendas getting in the way.

If Mr. Clinton abused these women, he should be held accountable for his actions and brought to justice.

Is it finally time for Bill Clinton to pay for his crimes?
