Time to change the channel


Last year the NFL lost millions of viewers because of the shameful behavior of Colin Kaepernick and the feckless response from the NFL. I was one of those viewers. Based on preseason games it appears there are others ready to take the place of the, up to now, unemployed  Kaepernick and his disrespect for our flag.

This powerful email was around last year and is equally relevant this year. The anti-American left is very effective when boycotting corporations and the advertisers that go against their leftist agenda. It’s past time freedom loving Americans do the same to the cowards, like the NFL, that do little to protect our constitution and the freedom it offers. Does Kaepernick have the right to shame himself and his employer on national television – of course he does. Does the NFL have the right to prevent their employee from doing so – of course they do. The NFL is dead to me – I have changed the channel.

I don’t think this could have been said any better and it definitely is about time someone said it.  Hopefully, this will go out over EVERY computer in the U.S. and maybe, just maybe, these sports people will get the message of just how ridiculous they are to disrespect our flag, and how little what they do in sports compare to what our great military has done for this country.

NFL protesting the flag- POWERFUL!!

                                       

Ret. Marine Col. Jeffery Powers wrote to the NFL commissioners the following:

Commissioners, I’ve been a season pass holder at Yankee Stadium, Yale Bowl and the Giants Stadium. I missed the ’90-’91 season because I was with a battalion of Marines in Desert Storm. 14 of my wonderful Marines returned home with the American Flag draped across their lifeless bodies. My last conversation with one of them, Sgt. Garrett Mongrella was about how our Giants were going to the Super Bowl. He never got to see it.

Many friends, Marines, and Special Forces Soldiers who worked with or for me through the years returned home with the American Flag draped over their coffins.

Now I watch multi-millionaire athletes who never did anything in their lives but play a game, disrespect what brave Americans fought and died for. They are essentially spitting in the faces and on the graves of real men, men who have actually done something for this country besides playing with a ball and believing they’re something special! They’re not! My Marines and Soldiers were!

You are complicit in this! You’ll fine players for large and small infractions but you lack the moral courage and respect for our nation and the fallen to put an immediate stop to this. Yes, I know, it’s their 1st Amendment right to behave in such a despicable manner.

What would happen if they came out and disrespected you or the refs publicly?

I observed a player getting a personal foul for twerking in the end zone after scoring. I guess that’s much worse than disrespecting the flag and our National  Anthem. Hmmmmm, isn’t it his 1st Amendment right to express himself like an idiot in the end zone?

Why is taunting not allowed yet taunting America is OK? You fine players for wearing 9-11 commemorative shoes yet you allow scum on the sidelines to sit, kneel or pump their pathetic fist in the air. They are so deprived with their multi-million dollar contracts for playing a freaking game!

You condone it all by your refusal to act. You’re just as bad and disgusting as they are. I hope Americans boycott any sponsor who supports that rabble you call the NFL. I hope they turn off the TV when any team that allowed this disrespect to occur, without consequence, on the sidelines. I applaud those who have not.

Legends and heroes do NOT wear shoulder pads. They wear body armor and carry rifles. 

They make minimum wage and spend months and years away from their families. 

They don’t do it for an hour on Sunday. They do it 24/7 often with lead, not footballs, coming in their direction. They watch their brothers carted off in pieces not on a gurney to get their knee iced. They don’t even have ice! Many don’t have legs or arms.

Some wear blue and risk their lives daily on the streets of America. They wear fire helmets and go upstairs into the fire rather than down to safety. On 9-11, hundreds vanished. They are the heroes.

I hope that your high paid protesting pretty boys and you look in that mirror when you shave tomorrow and see what you really are, legends in your own minds. You need to hit the road and take those worms with you!

Time to change the channel.

Powers originally sent his letter to former Florida congressman Allen West. West then posted the letter on his news website.

As of last week, at least 18 NFL player had protested the anthem by either kneeling during the anthem or raising their fists, according to USA Today Sports.

McCain is sliding deeper and deeper into the swamp


Our nation’s political process is under siege and the coup is being led by the corrupt main stream media and the big government progressives on the left. The political cowards that make up the Republican establishment also deserve credit for their part in this attack on our freedom. It has become clear that the once peaceful transition of power enjoyed by our country no longer exists.

As he promised President Trump remains focused on making America great again. Economic confidence is soaring as the president repeals job killing regulations enacted by Barack Obama. Illegal border crossings are down 60% and sanctuary cities will finally be forced to pay for their crimes. With Neil Gorsuch ready to assume his seat on the Supreme Court our Constitution is more secure and the rule of law will once again prevail.

Having said that, President Trump should use caution when calling out the conservative wing of the House of Representatives. The media, the Democrats and the Washington establishment are his enemies, not the Freedom Caucus. These are principled members of Congress who were instrumental in delivering historic Republican victories in 2010 and 2014. They were early supporters of Donald Trump when the Republican establishment was nowhere to be seen. These are legislators who want their President to succeed and had nothing to do with the poorly written and ill-conceived health care legislation. What sense does it make to replace a horrible health care law, Obamacare, that is completely owned by the Democrats with a horrible health care law completely owned by Republicans. It would be a political blunder to let Democrats off the hook that easily.

The Freedom Caucus understands that they won’t end up with everything they want. They also understand that as a party they need to present something that actually repeals Obamacare. Why was there such a rush put on this all important legislation? Why the deadline and why no input from conservatives? This could eventually still be a win. Congress needs to get back to work and come up with a better deal for the American people.

The Freedom Caucus should be commended for the political courage they have displayed. Unlike the DC establishment these are not the folks that populate the swamp President Trump promised to drain. These are the patriots that will help him drain it.

John Boehner on Ted Cruz


“I have never worked with a more miserable son-of-a-bitch in my life”. These words, aimed at Senator Ted Cruz, were delivered by former Speaker of the House, John Boehner. How sad Boehner refused to show this type of contempt toward Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reed while they rammed Obamacare down our throats and added $5 trillion to our national debt. He’s a political coward and deserved to lose his job. There are many who deserve the same fate.

There are no longer two parties in Washington, there is only one corrupt mess of big government progressives from both sides of the isle.  Getting re-elected and amassing power is what they seek and the American people always take a back seat to these goals. We don’t need to be lectured by out-of-touch political hacks like John Boehner. Unless the status quo is challenged, and defeated, the rotting of our Republic will continue and the Constitution of the United States will disappear.

The Republican Party, the RNC, Created Trump!


Post By Jeff Longo

In a recent column, Washington Post opinion writer George Will warns, if Donald Trump wins the presidential nomination prepare for the end of the Republican Party as we know it. For many of us that transformation had already begun long before Mr. Trump took the stage. Let’s be clear, Donald Trump’s political success is the product of a Republican establishment that has abandoned the values that got them elected. They have no one to blame but themselves.

With majorities in both houses they have failed to control spending while fully funding Obamacare, Planned Parenthood and the Syrian Refugee Program. There have been no meaningful steps taken to secure our border and they have failed to stop a lawless president who has done great damage to our country.

Democrats have allowed their party to be hijacked by the corrupt left who have driven wedges between the American people while creating a culture of victimization. The Republican establishment is doing much the same within their own party. They have lost the trust of many from their conservative base and they can no longer take my vote for granted.

 

 

 

 

We must stop the Open Border mentality!


Post by Jeff Longo

The San Bernardino terrorist attack was the deadliest on our homeland since 9/11. Radical Islam is here, they’ve been here and they will keep coming through the Obama regime’s open border policies. How can we  trust a Commander-in-Chief who refuses to identify an enemy who wants to kill as many American men, women and children as possible. The Western world is at war with radical Islam and they have arrived on our shores.

Last year 36,000 K-1 visa holders were allowed to enter our country. This is the same visa held by the female jihadist who helped slaughter 14 innocent Americans in the San Bernardino attack. When visas held by foreign students expire many of them simply stay. Many never show up at their University and no one seems to care. Currently there are up to 5 million immigrants who have over-stayed their visas and our inept federal government has no idea where they are or what they’re doing. The terrorists who attacked Paris could have boarded a plane and flown to the US on a visa waiver.

The House Homeland Security Chairman has stated that “individuals tied to terrorist groups in Syria have already attempted to gain access to our country through the US ‘Refugee Program.”‘ Along with the Director of the FBI it has been reported that there is no adequate data base or intelligence in Syria to properly vet the refugees. Barack Obama is playing “Russian Roulette” with the security of our Republic and her citizens. It’s past time we put the brakes on Obama’s mindless “Syrian Resettlement Program” and find a safer way to help these people. Funding for safe areas in Jordon or Saudi Arabia, where these immigrants can be housed much closer to their homeland, makes much more sense for them and for the security of the United States.

And for the low information liberals who would consider these remarks racist consider this; any presumed prejudice is directed only at those who want to kill Americans and those who make it easier for them to succeed.

 

 

 

Does anyone doubt that Obama supports Islam and ISIS?


Post by Jeff Longo

Just hours before the worst terrorist attack in French history Barack Obama stated “ISIL continues to shrink” and “we have contained them.” Delusional doesn’t begin to describe how out of touch with reality Obama remains on the danger facing the United States and her people. Since taking office he has refused to recognize radical Islam as the enemy that wants to kill as many Americans as possible. How can we  expect to defeat an enemy when the Commander in Chief refuses to identify them?

As a proud leftist and a proven liar Obama continues to mislead the American people. We now know that at least one of the terrorists held a Syrian passport and  was hidden amongst the tens of thousands of Syrian refugees who entered Europe. Just after the attack the Obama regime announced there would be no change in the Obama plan to allow ten thousand Muslim refugees into the United States. The question isn’t will there be Islamic jihadists imbedded with these refugees the question is how many will there be? As if this weren’t enough insanity the Obama regime chose this weekend to release five  more hardened terrorist from the prison at  Guantanamo Bay. These are not the actions of a president who cares about the security of the country he has sworn to protect.

This well coordinated attack on Paris was carried out by eight Islamic jihadists and sends a clear message they will soon be coming for us. ISIS recently stated that “American blood is the best and we will taste more.” We are being led by a federal government infested with corrupt, inept political cowards and they’re driving us to national suicide. The president’s legacy and the job security of a bloated government bureaucracy appears to be far more important than the security of our Republic. Washington is out of control and it’s past time the patriots of this nation demand to be heard. Call your representatives and insist they defund every penny that would go towards Obama’s reckless refugee program. If Democrats threaten to close the government, let them to close it down. The Obama refugee policy will kill Americans.

 

The ‘Social Contract’ concept of legitimate government is based on the Government protecting its citizens!


Hours before the worst terror attack in French history Barack Obama stated “ISIL continues to shrink” and “we have contained them.” Detached from reality doesn’t begin to describe how out of touch this president remains on this global threat. A threat he has continually refused to identify as radical Islamic terrorism.

As a proud leftist and proven liar it’s a solid bet that Mr. Obama doesn’t have a clue as to what he’s talking about and doesn’t much care. He prefers spending his energy on the redistribution of America’s wealth, supporting the scientific lie known as man made global warming, disarming law abiding Americans and his addictive appetite to fundamentally transform the United States of America.

This latest terrorist attack sends a clear message to Western civilization that soon these Islamic jihads will be coming for all of us. Does anyone really believe the gutless cowards, who occupy our nations capital, have the political courage to protect us? This president’s legacy and the job security of those in Congress, are far more important to these political gangsters than the security of the American people. As a Republic we are being driven to national suicide by a government that’s out of control.

Obama Wants Your Guns


Post By Jeff Longo

Once again Barack Obama showed incredibly bad judgement when he declared war on the Second Amendment before he had any knowledge of the facts surrounding the Oregon college shootings. With the dead bodies still warm, this president said “states with the most gun laws tend to have the fewest gun deaths”. We need only look at Obama’s home state of Illinois to realize what an irresponsible lie this was. Could he possibly believe we’re all as gullible as the clueless zombies that make up his base? The poor souls murdered in Oregon are being used by a president who always puts his legacy and destructive liberal agenda ahead of America and her people.

As with all of these mass-shootings, this cowardly animal chose a gun-free zone to carry out this carnage. These zones provide ample time for these freaks-of-nature to kill as many people as possible with little or no resistance. What the left refuses to grasp is that only law abiding gun owners will comply with gun-free zones. Criminals seek them out. Here’s how the Blaze’s Dana Loesch so aptly described them; “gun-free zones are criminal protection areas.” If Obama truly wants common sense gun legislation, he should suggest doing away with them so Americans can be free to protect themselves and their families.

 

 

Living Baby Part’s to the highest bidder!


By Jeff Longo

Thanks to Plain Dealer letter writer Karen Tucker [Baseless assault on Planned Parenthood] for reminding us how mindless and out of touch liberals have become. She’s appalled by the vicious attacks on Planned Parenthood that are based on heavily edited videotapes. Surely even Ms. Tucker understands when videotapes are hours long they require editing for time constraints in the media. There were multiple sites where the unedited versions could be viewed in their entirety. Nothing changes, we still see a callous abortion doctor, void of emotion, describing how the baby is removed from the mother’s womb and systematically crushed with forceps in a way not to damage the organs that will then be sold. She discusses this grotesque procedure while dining on salad and sipping wine. We then witness another abortion doctor sifting through a petri dish, identifying baby’s body parts, while discussing their value.

These are living babies that feel pain and we’re allowing it to happen. Planned Parenthood is an abomination that is helping rot our country’s moral foundation. Ms. Tucker and liberalism are the acid that eats away at American exceptionalism. Abortion is America’s Holocaust and one of the barometers future civilizations will judge us by.
