Hockey Scores A Goal For America

It might be time for patriotic Americans to discover a new favorite sport, professional hockey. Unlike other professional athletes, hockey players have refused to show disrespect toward the National Anthem. At exhibition games this week, all players with the New York Rangers, New York Islanders, Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers stood for the National Anthem.

Likewise, for Thursday night’s start of the season, all the players with the Dallas Stars and the Nashville Predators stood for the National Anthem. After the game, a few of the Dallas players displayed their clothing featuring the slogan, #WeSkateforEquality.

The NHL is allowing players to support whatever cause they want for the upcoming season

The NHL is allowing players to support whatever cause they want for the upcoming season. Such advocacy is fine, part of our 1st Amendment rights of free speech. However, it is respectful for NHL players to advocate their causes on their own time and not during the playing of the National Anthem.

Unfortunately, such a message is anathema to the National Basketball Association. This league has won the title for being the most “woke.” In their Orlando “bubble,” the NBA painted “Black Lives Matter” next to the basketball court.

At Thursday night’s opening game between the Utah Jazz and the New Orleans Pelicans, every single player, coach, and referee knelt during the National Anthem. For good measure, all the players wore a “Black Lives Matter” shirt. Some raised their fist in a “Black Power” salute. Almost all the players wore social justice messages on their jerseys.

The NBA is fully onboard with the organization Black Lives Matter, despite the well-known Marxist training of the group’s founders. The leaders of the organization have also expressed support for policies which are both anti-family and anti-Semitic. Clearly, it does not matter to the NBA.

In the first three games of the NBA’s renewed season, only one player, Jonathan Isaac of the Orlando Magic, refused to kneel during the playing of the National Anthem. In addition, he did not wear a “Black Lives Matter” shirt. According to Isaac, “I felt like I wanted to take a stand. I feel like we all make mistakes but I think that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is grace for us and that Jesus came and died for our sins…and that when we understand this, we can get past skin color.”

The NBA considers itself to be an international league and is not concerned if it affiliates with the country posing the greatest threat to the national security and health of the United States

Isaac should be commended for his courageous stand. Unfortunately, he plays basketball for a league that is complicit with human rights abuses occurring in communist China. Why would the NBA care about the radical ideology of Black Lives Matter when it refuses to condemn the brutal communist regime in China?

A new ESPN report asserts that players as young as 13 are being physically abused and denied adequate education by coaches at NBA training academies in China. The anonymous coaches who were interviewed for the report claim that the NBA told them to cover-up the abusive behavior.

This communist dictatorship is very influential within the NBA, which profits handsomely from the relationship. Thus, no criticism of communist China is allowed. In October, when Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey tweeted a message of support to the young people fighting oppression in Hong Kong, the NBA forced him to apologize.

The leading star of the NBA, LeBron James, stated that Morey was “misinformed or not really educated on the situation.” Of course, Morey knows much more about “the situation” than James, who has never issued one negative comment toward China, a country that represses ethnic and religious minorities and is engaged in outright hostile and belligerent behavior toward the United States.

The NBA considers itself to be an international league and is not concerned if it affiliates with the country posing the greatest threat to the national security and health of the United States. It is well known that communist China lied about the origins and spread of Covid-19, which has become a worldwide pandemic.

While other professional sports leagues do not share the NBA’s disgusting position toward communist China, they do share a commitment to showcasing their social justice credentials

While other professional sports leagues do not share the NBA’s disgusting position toward communist China, they do share a commitment to showcasing their social justice credentials. In the opening games of the new Major League Baseball season, players knelt before and during the playing of the National Anthem. In addition, when the NFL starts their season in September, fans can expect almost all the players to kneel during the National Anthem as well.

This type of behavior certainly upsets traditional Americans. In a recent CBS News poll, a majority of Americans over the age of 65 opposed kneeling during the National Anthem. Nonetheless, in other age groups, there was more approval of the controversial gesture. Overall, 58% of Americans supported the right of athletes to kneel during the National Anthem.

This behavior is not acceptable to President Trump. Last week, he tweeted, “Looking forward to live sports, but any time I witness a player kneeling during the National Anthem, a sign of great disrespect for our Country and our Flag, the game is over for me!” This view was also expressed by Mike Ditka, former NFL broadcaster, coach, and Hall of Fame player with the Chicago Bears. He said that players who kneel during the National Anthem should “get the hell out of the country.”

Trump and Ditka might not speak for a majority of Americans, but if the 42% who are disgusted by kneeling decide to no longer watch the NFL and other professional sports with such protests, it will negatively impact ratings, which will ultimately devastate the financial bottom line for the leagues. If this unpatriotic conduct continues, millions of Americans will not support such “great disrespect for our Country and our Flag” and these “woke” leagues will get their just deserts.

President Trump Impromptu Remarks Departing The White House – Video and Transcript…


Chopper pressers are the best pressers.  On his way to Texas, President Trump stopped for a brief press conference with the media prior to departure.  [Video and Transcript]

[Transcript] THE PRESIDENT: Good morning. We have a lot of things going on. As you know, we’re heading out to Texas right now.

But Portland — I’ll give you a little report on Portland: We have the courthouse very well secured. Our people have done a fantastic job. You hear all sorts of reports about us leaving. We’re not leaving until they’ve secured their city. We told the governor, we told the mayor: “Secure your city.” If they don’t secure their city soon, we have no choice — we’re going to have to go in and clean it out. We’ll do it very easily. We’re all prepared to do it.

So, in Portland, they either clean out their city and do the job and get rid of the anarchists and agitators, which is what they are. They’re not protesters; they’re anarchists and agitators. We have many in jail. Many of them have been put in jail. It’s going to be a long sentence. They either clean out their city and do it right, or we’re going to have to do it for them.

On CARES, I think — maybe, Steve, would you like to say something on that?

SECRETARY MNUCHIN: Well, as of now, we’re very far apart. And because of that, the President and we have discussed a short-term extension to UI and the evictions so that we have some period to negotiate before this runs out. And the President is very (inaudible).

THE PRESIDENT: We want to work on the evictions so that people don’t get evicted. We’ll work on the payments for the people. And the rest of it, we’re so far apart, we don’t care. We really don’t care. We want to take care of the people. The Democrats aren’t taking care of the people. The payments aren’t enough. The payments aren’t enough. You understand that. They’re not making the payments; they’re not making them high enough. The Democrats are not taking care of the people. Nancy Pelosi takes care of herself, but she doesn’t take care of anyone else.

If you look at what’s going on with Schumer: So when Schumer and Pelosi can get together and take care of the people, we’ll do something. In the meantime, we ought to stop evictions because that expires very soon. So we want to stop the evictions.

Q How do you rate Kamala Harris as a VP? There’s a rumor it’s going to be her.

THE PRESIDENT: I think she’d be a fine choice, Kamala Harris. She’d be a fine choice.

Q Sir, you said you want to pass a short-term bill? A short-term bill. Are you saying you want to pass a short-term bill?

THE PRESIDENT: I don’t hear a word you’re saying.

Q Mr. President, are you saying you want to pass a short-term bill?

SECRETARY MNUCHIN: Well, we’re looking at a deadline, obviously, of this Friday. The President is very focused on evictions and unemployment. And if we can’t reach an agreement by then, the President wants to look at giving us more time to negotiate this.

THE PRESIDENT: We’re focused on those two things. We want to take care of them now. The rest, we can discuss later. They want big bailout money for Democrats that ran cities terribly. Their cities are going down the tubes. If you look at Portland, if you look at what’s going in Seattle — Democrat-run cities, whether you like it or not, they’re terribly run, and they’re always over-taxed. So they’ve taxed them too much and they run them poorly. And we don’t like that.

And what the Democrats want are bailout funds, and what we want is we want to take care of people. And we should reward most of this country that’s well run. You know, most of the country is very well run. You’re watching a Portland and you’re watching Seattle. You’re watching New York, where they had a 400 percent increase in crime. Four hundred percent. My city that I love, that I left to do this job, and they had a 400 percent increase, and it’s unacceptable.

But most of the country is very well run, and Republican cities are very well run. And it’s a shame to reward badly run, radical-left Democrats, with all of this money that they’re looking for, for cities — to throw it away on cities that are poorly run.

Q Are you confident that Russia did not place bounties on U.S. troops?

THE PRESIDENT: I don’t — I told you, I certainly read about it, and since then, I’ve talked about it. Colin Powell says it’s not true. Colin Powell is not exactly somebody that I’m a big fan of. Colin Powell says it’s not true. Other people say it’s not true.

If it were true, I’d be very angry about it. But if you look at Russia, Russia became Russia from the Soviet Union because of Afghanistan. They lost a fortune and a lot of people — a lot of people.

So I don’t know why they’d be doing it. But if you tell me they’re doing it, I will certainly take that under consideration.

Q How would you respond if Russia did turn out to have done that? How would you respond? Would you do sanctions?

THE PRESIDENT: I would respond appropriately. Nobody has been tougher on Russia. Nobody has been tougher on China. Nobody has been tougher on Iran than me, and it’s not even close. And everybody knows this. Nobody has been tougher on Russia, China, or anybody else than me, including our allies — NATO, who I got to pay $140 billion more money — $140 billion. You know what that is?

Q A lot of money.

THE PRESIDENT: And you know why? That’s to hold Russia in check, all right? I did Russia no favor. Nobody has been tougher on Russia than I am.

Q Mr. President, on NATO, you just gave the order to remove U.S. troops from Germany. How does that keep Russia in check?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, Germany is delinquent. They haven’t paid their fees. They haven’t paid their NATO fees. And they’re way off, and they’ve been off for years, and they have no intention of paying it. And the United States has been taken advantage of on trade and on military and on everything else for many years, and I’m here and I’ve been straightening it out.

But Germany owes billions and billions of dollars to NATO. And why would we keep all of those troops there? And now Germany is saying it’s bad for their economy. Well, it’s good for our economy. Germany is delinquent. They’re at 1 percent. They should be at 2 percent. And actually, everybody should be at 4 percent, not 2 percent, because 2 percent is too low. But they’re at 1 percent, and they’ve take advantage of us for many years.

And you think that’s bad? They take worse advantage on trade. And I was all set to fix that, and then we got hit with the China plague. But we’ll be fixing it.

And a guy like Biden — this country wouldn’t have a chance. With Biden, our country wouldn’t have a chance.

Go ahead.

Q In terms of China, they closed our consulate in Chengdu. Are you planning a response for that move by China?

THE PRESIDENT: No, we’ll see what happens. That’s all right. We’ll see what happens.

Q Are you dropping the demand for FBI money — the FBI building?

THE PRESIDENT: So the FBI building — they’ve been trying to build a new building for many years — many, many years. They were thinking about going very far away, but you have to be near the Justice Department. You don’t want to be too far away, where they have to drive for an hour, hour and a half — because they had a site way out in Virginia, way out in Maryland. And I said, “The best place is right where it is. It’s the best piece of property in Washington.” I’m very good at real estate.

So I said, “We’ll build a new FBI building.” Let’s build a new FBI building — either a renovation of the existing, or even better would be a new building. So we have that in the bill. It should stay. People have wanted a new FBI building now for 15 or 20 years.

Q But Republicans don’t want it in the bill.

THE PRESIDENT: Then Republicans should go back to school and learn. They need a new building. It’s a bad building. It’s a dangerous building. You have slabs falling off. It’s not a good building from the inside, and it’s a very expensive building. They need a new building, and we can do it very easily. To me, it would be very — super (inaudible). I would make sure you build a great building at a fraction of the cost, and they can have it done quickly. So the FBI building is not new; this is something they’ve been talking about for many, many years, for decades.

Q Mr. President, on TikTok, how close are you to making a decision about banning TikTok?

THE PRESIDENT: We’re looking at TikTok. We’re thinking about making a decision. We’re going to be watching the hearings today very closely, because there is no question that what the big tech companies are doing is very bad.

SECRETARY MNUCHIN: Let me just also add on that: CFIUS — TikTok is under CFIUS review, and we’ll be making a recommendation to the President on it this week. So we have lots of alternatives.

Q Do you regret tweeting about that doctor, Mr. President? Do you regret tweeting about that doctor yesterday?

THE PRESIDENT: Regret what?

Q Stella Immanuel, the doctor — do you wish you had not retweeted that?

THE PRESIDENT: I was very impressed with her and other doctors that stood with her. I think she made sense, but I know nothing about her. I just saw her on — you know, making a statement with very respected doctors. She was not alone. She was making a statement about hydroxychloroquine with other doctors that swear by it. They think it’s great. So she was not alone.

Fake news CNN made it like, “Oh, I said this, I said that.” She was with a whole group of people. And you ought to tell your network the reason their ratings are so bad is because the coverage is so false. If CNN would be honest — and that goes for MSDNC also. But your network is so dishonest in its coverage on just about everything, and there’s an example.

I was very impressed by her. Know nothing about her; I had never seen her before. But certainly you can put her up and let her have a voice. So what they did is they took down their voice. Now, they seem to never take down the other side. They only take down conservative voices. It’s a shame.

And with hydroxy, all I want to do is save lives. I don’t care if it’s hydroxy or anything else. All I want to do is save lives. If we can save lives, that’s great.

Now, one thing: We’re doing very well on vaccines and very well on therapeutics. So that’s very important. But I happen to be a believer in hydroxy. I used it. I had no problem. I happen to be a believer. Many, many people agree with me. A great test just came out from the Ford clinic in Michigan — very respected. We’ll see how it is.

Q Mr. President, have you decided how you’re going to give your convention acceptance speech yet?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, I’m thinking about it, but we’re picking a location. Fairly soon we’ll let you know.

Q It won’t be here at the White House? It’ll be somewhere in —

THE PRESIDENT: Might be. It’s something we’re thinking about.

Q Back to Germany: Are those troops — what signal does it send to Russia? Those troops were always there to defend Europe against Russia.

THE PRESIDENT: You’re right. They’re there to protect Europe; they’re there to protect Germany. Right? And Germany is supposed to pay for it. Germany is not paying for it. So why should we leave them if they were not — we don’t want to be the suckers anymore.

The United States has been taken advantage of for 25 years, both on trade and on the military. We are protecting Germany. So we’re reducing the force because they’re not paying their bill. It’s very simple: They’re delinquent. Very simple. And there are other NATO countries also.

Right now, you have 8 out of the 28 countries that have paid up. I got them to pay $130 billion a year more, going up to $400 [billion]. Most of them will be up to date. It wasn’t easy. But most of them will be up to date. The one that won’t be up to date is Germany. And we spend a lot of money on Germany. They take advantage of us on trade, and they take advantage on the military, so we’re reducing the force. Now, if they start paying their bills, I could rethink about — I would think about it.

Yeah.

Q Did you talk to Russia about a coronavirus vaccine?

THE PRESIDENT: We talked to Putin about a lot of different things, mostly —

Q About a vaccine?

THE PRESIDENT: — arms control. We’re working on a vaccine. I think we’ll have one. Oxford is doing very well. Pfizer is doing very well. We have a lot of good options.

Q They said Russia was trying to steal information about a vaccine from researchers. Did you talk to them about that?

THE PRESIDENT: You’re going to have to talk up. I can hear everybody but you.

Q Can you come right here?

THE PRESIDENT: I can hear everybody but you.

Q Can you come right here?

Q On arms control, did you make progress? Are there going to be formal negotiations?

THE PRESIDENT: Yeah. There already are. We’re — we’re in formal negotiations with Russia on arms control — meaning, on nuclear arms control.

Q What about bringing China in?

THE PRESIDENT: We’ll talk about that later. We’re going to work this first and we’ll see. China right now is a much lesser nuclear power — you understand that — than Russia. Right now, we are the great nuclear power. We’ve upgraded our nuclear tremendously since. We have the most power. Russia is second and China is third. China is surging; they’ll be there at some point. And, yeah, we would want to talk to China eventually. Yes. Okay?

Q Why not as part of a trilateral negotiation? Does China not want to be involved?

THE PRESIDENT: We thought that we would do it first. I don’t know if it’s going to work out. But we would do it first and then we go to China together. Okay? Which, I think, works out probably better.

Q Did you talk to O’Brien? Did you talk to Robert O’Brien?

THE PRESIDENT: I did. I wished him well. I haven’t seen him in a while —

Q Why not?

THE PRESIDENT: — but he went on vacation. He came back, he wasn’t well. He tested positive. He’s doing very, very well.

Q Why haven’t you seen him lately?

THE PRESIDENT: He said he’s doing very well. I spoke to him yesterday.

Q Mr. President, are you concerned about reports that a lot of Americans wouldn’t accept a vaccine? And what could the administration do —

THE PRESIDENT: No, I’m not — I’m not concerned. Well, I’m a therapeutic person, too, you know, to be honest. I love the idea of therapeutics, where you go in, you give somebody a transfusion or a shot, and they get better. I am a big therapeutic person. But we’re doing very well on vaccines and therapeutics. Okay?

And as far as Portland is concerned, we’ve taken a very strong stand. They are anarchists. They’re radical, crazy people. And they’re either going to straighten it out for themselves — Portland, the police — and maybe if the state gets involved; that means the governor and the mayor. But they’re very weak people. They’re very weak people. These radicals, these anarchists are controlling the governor and this mayor.

The mayor went into a rally — it wasn’t accurately reported by CNN, by NBC. The mayor went into a rally. He thought he’d be their buddy. They excoriated him. They excor- — what they did to him was incredible. Lucky he had five bodyguards. But they excoriated him.

NBC — I didn’t see CNN because I don’t watch CNN. NBC absolutely covered it like he was their big buddy. No, he was in great danger of dying. He would have been dead if he didn’t have his bodyguards.

These are bad people. These are anarchists. They’re agitators. And either they do something or we’re going to do it.

In the meantime, our purpose there is only to protect our federal buildings, which we’re doing with no problem. I mean, they’re nasty and they’re vicious people, but our people are very powerful people. Very powerful.

And either they’re going to clean up Portland soon or the federal government is going up and we’re going to do it for them. So either they clean out Portland — the governor and the mayor, who are weak — either they clean out Portland or we’re going in to do it for them.

Okay, thank you very much.

Unhyphenated American Lloyd Marcus is gone—but the Trump Train He Created Rides On

Unhyphenated American Lloyd Marcus is gone—but the Trump Train He Created Rides On

No words could ever convey the sorrow here at Canada Free Press upon hearing the news that our courageous columnist,  “unhyphenated-American” Lloyd Marcus has passed.

An early morning email from our mutual friend Valerie Price alerted me this morning, and I haven’t been able to shake my worries about his beloved wife, Mary, who adored him, all this day.

Lloyd and Mary kept their love alive from decades-ago days when they were high school sweethearts.

Lloyd died, aged 71, one day after his 44th Wedding Anniversary.

The shock of Lloyd’s death of a heart attack on Friday was all the more unnerving because it was only on Thursday, he sent us his last column, ‘Last Stand to Save America as Founded’:

“Seriously folks, we must do everything in our power to reelect our remarkable president. This election is our last stand to save America as founded. America is counting on you.”

A talented singer and songwriter, Lloyd’s latest popular music production was the ‘Trump Train 2020’ music video.

In his Thursday column he urged readers, “Please spread the Trump Train 2020 music video far and wide to counter Neil Young’s song, “We Got to Vote Him Out!”

A down-to-earth, unassuming Tea Party legend, Lloyd and Mary, gave up a peaceful home life, appearing at countless rallies and gatherings across the country.

Like all conservatives putting America first, he sometimes ran into resistance, and found it hard to understand how so many people are buying into media propaganda.

“For example: My sister is one such low-info Christian voter. I recruited her awesome alto voice to sing in the choir at the recording session of my Trump Train 2020 song. The choir was mostly white, all Trump supporters. She noticed that they were good friendly everyday people, not the rabid racists portrayed by media. Her eyes popped out of her head in disbelief when I told her San Francisco gives tourists maps to avoid the piles of human feces on the streets left by vagrants. She had no idea that Trump was responsible for black unemployment being its lowest in U.S. history.

“In the Trump Train 2020 music video, she is the beautiful black woman singing the solo line, “Don’t you feel the engines roar!”

“Folks, in these final months leading up to the November election, the Democrat/communist party will launch every wicked scheme in their depraved playbook to attack the American people to stop them from reelecting one of the greatest presidents in U.S. history, Donald J. Trump.

“Black Lives Matter, ANTIFA and various other anti-christian and anti-American hate groups do not want “brotherhood” as desired by Dr King. They want to punish white America. They demand that whites physically kneel to blacks and beg forgiveness for their sin of being born white. The people in these groups are wicked and must not be tolerated. At the top of your lungs, scream the word, “No!” to them.

“I’ve awakened 2am in the morning, turned on my TV and have encountered lie-filled news stories trashing Trump. The hits on Trump just keep on comin’.

“This is what we are up against, folks.

“A large percentage of the country get their news from mainstream (fake news) media. Consequently, they are clueless regarding many important issues.”

In many of his columns, Lloyd wrote about his much beloved Father, the late Rev. Lloyd E. Marcus, the first man who broke the color barrier in the Baltimore Fire Department.

He wrote on Thursday, “I am the eldest of 4 boys and one girl. My sister was Dad’s princess. He purchased her first car, a brand new Fiat. He made me work to purchase my first “used” car. The good news is Fiats were lemons; just kidding.

“Seriously folks, we must do everything in our power to reelect our remarkable president. This election is our last stand to save America as founded. America is counting on you.

“We have so much work to do. This is all hands on deck. This election is our last stand to save our founding father’s divinely-inspired vision of America.

“Please talk to your neighbors, family and friends encouraging them to vote for Trump. Let them know what is at strike. that they were good friendly everyday people, not the rabid racists portrayed by media.”

‘The Man in the Black Hat’ served his country well, calling out for its protection even on his last day among us.

Canadian Valerie Price, his biggest fan north of the border and I will dry our tears and pray for the Creator to comfort Mary in her heartbreak and grief.

But the thousands of those whose lives Lloyd Marcus touched will go on riding the Trump Train as if he were still here—because to all who knew and love him, he IS.

One Man Stands Alone


The player who refused to kneel was Giants relief pitcher Sam Coonrod, a true hero

One Man Stands Alone

In the two months since George Floyd was killed by a white Minneapolis police officer, the world has changed significantly. For example, major businesses in America are fully onboard with the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement as almost 300 top corporations have pledged support for the cause. These corporate leaders have been joined by all the professional sports franchises and political leaders of both parties have expressed solidarity with BLM.

Any expression of “All Lives Matter” has been deemed to be racist. For example, a Sacramento Kings broadcaster lost his job for tweeting “All Lives Matter.” In New Orleans, a Mardi Gras krewe captain faced intense criticism and the defection of members and bands from her parade for issuing a similar message online. A New Orleans area teacher was fired because her husband admitted to painting “We All Matter” and other non-racist slogans on his fence. It seems clear that in the politically correct climate today, everyone must express support for BLM or face a withering backlash.

The problem is that the BLM organization was founded by individuals who admitted to being “trained Marxists”

The problem is that the BLM organization was founded by individuals who admitted to being “trained Marxists.” Of course, all Americans should oppose individuals advocating an ideology that threatens our constitutional republic and our capitalist economic system.

Karl Marx is the founder of communism, a system of government that survives by fully destroying the freedom of its citizens. People living in communist countries have no human rights and exist only to serve the all-powerful state. Today, communist governments endure in North Korea, Vietnam, Laos, Cuba, and China.

All these countries repress their people and deprive them of basic freedoms such as the right to speak, assemble, petition, and practice their religious faith. These barbaric practices have existed in all communist nations since the overthrow of the Czar in Russia in 1917 and the eventual formation of the Soviet Union. Since that time, communist dictators have killed at least 100 million innocent people throughout the world.

Unfortunately, the media does not allow any mention of the Marxist origins of BLM or any criticism of the organization. Any courageous critics will be labeled a racist. Understandably, most people fear being given such a label, so they will refuse to give their honest opinion and just appease the mob to protect their job and their family.

The stampede to support BLM has been seen in every sports league over the last few months. Americans used to be able to enjoy sporting events without being lectured about their political beliefs. It used to be a nice diversion from the pressures of everyday life. Unfortunately, those days are long gone. Today, sports are just one more area of life that has been overtaken by social justice warriors.

The NBA has painted Black Lives Matter next to their court in the “bubble” in Orlando. The NFL has expressed support and will play the “Black National Anthem” prior to the National Anthem during the first week of games this season. In Major League Soccer, players raised their fist and knelt in support of BLM at the opening of their season.

The acceptance of this Marxist group has been especially apparent in Major League Baseball. Members of the Cincinnati Reds and San Francisco Giants knelt during exhibition games. In Boston, the Red Sox just unveiled a massive Black Lives Matter billboard right outside of Fenway Park.

On Thursday night, before the opening game of the season, all the players with the New York Yankees and Washington Nationals knelt before and during the National Anthem. However, in the San Francisco Giants game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, all the players knelt prior to the National Anthem, except one lonely “Christian.”

The player who refused to kneel was Giants relief pitcher Sam Coonrod, a true hero. In an interview after the game, Coonrod explained his refusal to join his teammates by claiming that he “can’t kneel before anything besides God.”

Such a courageous stand needs to be applauded. Usually, a player, such as Saints Quarterback Drew Brees, who expresses support for standing for the National Anthem, will cave after strong criticism. Eventually, Brees and his wife apologized multiple times.

Coonrod took the road less traveled. He explained his opposition to BLM by noting “I’m a Christian, like I said, and I just can’t get on board with a couple of things that I have read about Black Lives Matter. How they lean towards Marxism and they have said some negative things about the nuclear family. I just can’t get on board with that.”

Fortunately, Gabe Kapler, the manager of the Giants, supported Coonrod’s decision. He said that players were going to be able to “express themselves.”  He also noted “We were going to give them the choice on whether they were going to stand, kneel, or do something else. That was a personal decision for Sam.”

This “personal decision” is quite exceptional in the environment we live in today. Congratulations to a rare breed indeed, a player who truly stands alone.

America’s Misguided Children


Clear and present delusion of America’s misguided children

America’s Misguided Children

Imust ask, what does the destruction of statues of abolitionists have to do with George Floyd?

OK, yes, that is the pure definition of a rhetorical question; it has nothing to do with it. And therein lies the crux of what is happening in America. The misguided children, and that reference is not based upon age, but rather level of rational competence, have taken a totally unrelated event and leveraged it for an ideological agenda that embraces violence. The nation was appalled at the George Floyd murder. However, the rational inquiry that should be made is, what does tearing down the statue of Frederick Douglass or Abraham Lincoln have to do with George Floyd?

Clear and present delusion of America’s misguided children

Matter of fact, what do Christopher Columbus, Teddy Roosevelt, or the Washington Redskins have to do with George Floyd? None of those whom I reference wore a Minneapolis police officer uniform and certainly have not been charged and sit in jail awaiting a court date.

Only the irrational, misguided children of the progressive, socialist left would deduce that the way to respond to that tragedy is with violence. And so, business owners who had nothing to do with George Floyd are having their livelihoods assailed, looted.

Then, America’s misguided children respond by saying, “what’s the big deal, they have insurance?” This is the infantile, delusional mind of leftists that justify their brand of violence and mobocracy by saying “you can pay for the damage we inflicted yourself.” I guess they do not understand the effect of their lunacy on insurance premiums increasing.

Just this past week, Minneapolis and Burlington, Vt. declared that racism is a public health emergency.

Oh boy, another “pandemic,” what shall we do now, be forced to wear BLM face coverings? Is there going to be a rush for a vaccine to end the public health emergency called racism? Can I go to my local pharmacy and get an over-the-counter drug to curtail the symptoms of racism? Ahh, maybe a band-aid will do.

Yes, I jest, but one can only laugh and use a little humor to offset the clear and present delusion of America’s misguided children.

Misguided temper tantrums

In cities like Chicago and New York City, crimes, shootings, and murders are on the rise, but two of the left’s most prominent misguided children, Mayors Lightfoot and de Blasio, blame COVID-19. I have yet to hear either of these two take a stand against the leftist violence plaguing our streets. Matter of fact, de Blasio went so far as to assist in painting a BLM mural on Fifth Avenue in NYC…after all, Marxist misguided children tend to flock together. And in Chicago, the black-on-black crime is genocidal, far more than the 2019 statistic of only 15 unarmed black men being shot by police officers. But BLM nor Mayor Lightfoot are taking any actions in Chicago.

See, the misguided children get angry, abjectly enraged, when you refuse to follow along with their misguided temper tantrums. You become the problem…did I mention George Floyd?

Speaking of childish temper tantrums, in Portland Ore., the violence is running rampant in the streets. And what is the response of the mayor of Portland? Try to get things under control? Ask for assistance? Nah, this misguided child lashes out at the federal government which was attempting to restore law and order and serve and protect the citizens of Portland from the mob.

More misguided children.

We watched what happened in CHOP/CHAZ, whatever you call it, in Seattle. The mayor there, a misguided child herself, allowed this little “Lord of the Flies” endeavor to happen. She referred to the place as festive, until what we knew would happen, happened. And it happened that young black men lost their lives, shot, murdered, again…but no BLM protest. So, the Seattle mayor moves in the police to restore law and order. Now, the misguided children have turned on her and demand her being recalled.

Lesson learned: you cannot appease, compromise, negotiate, or acquiesce to the misguided children

Lesson learned: you cannot appease, compromise, negotiate, or acquiesce to the misguided children, so stop giving them the Froot Loops and believing they will be placated, satisfied.

But probably the biggest indicator of America’s misguided children comes from a city not far from where I went to college: Asheville, North Carolina. In Asheville, they have decided to issue reparations to descendants of slaves…after all, it was a Republican president, Abraham Lincoln, who freed the slaves. Did I mention that the misguided children want to destroy and take down Lincoln’s statue? He apparently didn’t do enough for blacks.

So, who writes the check to who in Asheville, NC? I can almost guarantee you that there is no one alive in Asheville that has ever owned slaves. Heck, I do not think you can find anyone in Asheville, NC that was a slave. The only slaves in America today are those economically enslaved to the Democrat Party because of their welfare nanny-state policies and programs. Yet the misguided children align themselves with the party of the “soft bigotry of low expectations” that still views blacks as nothing more than descendants of slaves.

How utterly disgusting.

We should not be allowing the misguided children to run the amusement park. Where are the adults, the grown-ups, who instill guidance, rational thought, discipline, wisdom, and discernment? Who will step in and be the statesman, stateswoman?

The sad reality is that very few are finding the resolve, intestinal fortitude, and character to confront America’s misguided children. And if that continues to happen, they become useful idiots…and we lose a country.

The Last Stand to Save America as Founded


Seriously folks, we must do everything in our power to reelect our remarkable president. This election is our last stand to save America as founded. America is counting on you

My patriotic mood began re-watching Whitney Houston’s spectacular performance of our National Anthem at Super Bowl XXV in 1991. Whitney’s rendition was re-released as a single after the 9/11 terrorists attacks. She donated all proceeds to charity.

“Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth, on this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”— Abraham Lincoln

Wow! Lincoln said it right there in his Gettysburg address that America was founded upon the principle that all men are created equal. Leftist schools have taught our kids for decades that America was founded by evil white guys with no desire for equality. Yes, it took awhile to reach our goal of equality for all Americans; 600,000 dying in the Civil War to free the slaves and years of civil rights battles paved the way to elect our first black president. But, we got there folks. We got there!

“The thing that sets the American Christian apart from all other people in the world is he will die on his feet before he’ll live on his knees.” —George Washington

I pray that Christians will stop kneeling to wicked cultural demands and begin standing up again for Godly principles. Far too many youths are Marxist zealot domestic terrorists because we’ve allowed leftist schools to poison their minds about their God, their family and their country. Outrageously, across America “yutes”  are scolding, lecturing and punishing their parents for being Christians, patriotic Americans and gun-owners.

“I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.”—Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.

Black s Matter, ANTIFA and various other anti-christian and anti-American hate groups do not want “brotherhood” as desired by Dr King. They want to punish white America. They demand that whites physically kneel to blacks and beg forgiveness for their sin of being born white. The people in these groups are wicked and must not be tolerated. At the top of your lungs, scream the word, “No!” to them.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.—Psalm 33:12

America is a Christian nation, brilliantly and divinely founded upon biblical principles. Stating this truth enrages BLM and ANTIFA causing them to vomit green-slime and their heads to spin around backwards. Evil is repulsed by good. Alexis de Tocqueville said “America is great because America is good.”

Folks, in these final months leading up to the November election, the Democrat/communist party will launch every wicked scheme in their depraved playbook to attack the American people to stop them from reelecting one of the greatest presidents in U.S. history, Donald J. Trump.

We have so much work to do. This is all hands on deck. This election is our last stand to save our founding father’s divinely-inspired vision of America. Please talk to your neighbors, family and friends encouraging them to vote for Trump. Let them know what is at strike. Here is a list of 42 crazy disastrous things Biden will implement if elected.

I’ve awakened 2am in the morning, turned on my TV and have encountered lie-filled news stories trashing Trump. The hits on Trump just keep on comin’. This is what we are up against folks.

A large percentage of the country get their news from mainstream (fake news) media. Consequently, they are clueless regarding many important issues.

For example: My sister is one such low-info Christian voter. I recruited her awesome alto voice to sing in the choir at the recording session of my Trump Train 2020 song. The choir was mostly white, all Trump supporters. She noticed that they were good friendly everyday people, not the rabid racists portrayed by media. Her eyes popped out of her head in disbelief when I told her San Francisco gives tourists maps to avoid the piles of human feces on the streets left by vagrants. She had no idea that Trump was responsible for black unemployment being its lowest in U.S. history.

We flew many of our singers from the east coast to California to perform in the Trump Train 2020 song music video. Upon landing in California, my sister was stunned to see the “all gender” restrooms with signs welcoming transgenders at the airport. This opened the door for me to educate her about the extreme LGBTQ agenda that Biden and the Democrats want to implement across the country. My buddy, Robert Kirk, brilliantly exposes the wacko California LGBTQ mandates in his award-winning comedy short film, “Nightmare in Paradise.”

I suspect my sister will vote for Trump. In the Trump Train 2020 music video, she is the beautiful black woman singing the solo line, “Don’t you feel the engines roar!”

Please spread the Trump Train 2020 music video far and wide to counter Neil Young’s song, “We Got to Vote Him Out!”

I am the eldest of 4 boys and one girl. My sister was Dad’s princess. He purchased her first car, a brand new Fiat. He made me work to purchase my first “used” car. The good news is Fiats were lemons; just kidding.

Seriously folks, we must do everything in our power to reelect our remarkable president. This election is our last stand to save America as founded. America is counting on you.

National Peanut Growers Association Saves Washington Redskins Franchise!

National Peanut Growers Association Saves Washington Redskins Franchise!

—Satire

Lance LeGume, President of the National Redskin Peanut Growers Association, in a recent exclusive interview with Ace Reporter Hugh Betcha of the Canada Free Press, announced a stunning new development: the Washington Redskins football franchise will be soon be purchased by the National Redskin Peanut Growers Association for an undisclosed sum which will allow the franchise to retain the franchise name and change the team logo slightly to remove any suggestion of political incorrectness.

“It is a win-win,” announced LeGume as he held up a helmet displaying the new logo: the ubiquitous and tasty redskin peanut. “We keep the famous and revered name, and get free publicity for our wonderful product each time the team takes the field. Everyone is reminded of this tasty snack, everyone is happy, and no one is offended. Who does not love redskin peanuts?

But when asked for comment on this new development, Nancy Pelosi reacted with an outburst of anger typically reserved for anything that Donald Trump does.

“This is just one more example of the right wing, racist Republicans’ attempt to smear an entire race of people, which must be stopped,” she yelled as she slammed his fist on the desk.  “We are going to introduce new legislation to block it,” she said.

“You mean the sale of the franchise?” Hugh inquired.

“No,” replied Pelosi, “the word ‘redskins’. It is inherently offensive. You may change the logo, but people will still see the peanut and hear the word and be reminded that there are people out there with red skin, and someone, somewhere, somehow is still going to be offended. This is why I do not even eat the damn things anymore. Every time I ate a redskins peanut I was reminded of our treatment of Native Americans over the years.”

Nonplussed,  Hugh terminated the interview and filed this report.

In a related, fast-breaking story, Pelosi announced today that the House will take up legislation banning certain words or phrases, among them: “white bread,” “white milk,” “White House,” “Snow White,” “White Christmas,” and other equally offensive words or phrases too numerous to repeat here….

If Joe Only Had A Brain


‘Without a brain, Joe Biden simply cannot reign’

If Joe Only Had A Brain

The Democrat Donkey Race heading down the trail for Election 2020 is off to a start with Joe Biden, former bartender Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) and a badly reconfigured Kamala Harris are now ‘Off to See The Wizard, the Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

Their campaign theme song should be a full-throated ‘If Joe Only Had a Brain’.

The entire electorate will soon hear Joe singing:

…”I could while away the hours
Dreamin’ of new powers
Watch America circlin’ the drain.

“Kamala’s hair I’ll be sniffin’
while common sense I’m missin’
If I only had a brain”….

With the Straw Man’s refrain droning non-stop through our tired-of-mask-wearing heads, some of us are singing, ‘Without a brain, Joe Biden simply cannot reign’.

But Straw Man Joe’s only the center of this comical little trio now skipping ‘Off to see the Wizard’.

Kamala Harris (yes, that’s really who debuted her ‘new look’ during Saturday’s interview with the Rev. Al Sharpton!) is barely recognizable in a new plastic surgery makeover that seems to outdo Lizzy Warren’s cherished high cheek bones, but even with that freaky new look, underneath all her rearranged skin, Kamala’s still really the same old, same old.

Much of Brainless Joe’s campaign platform is AOC’s, but with the Squad leader’s full support,  he didn’t have to plagiarize something not really his this time.

Some of us will go on singing that ‘Without a brain, Joe Simply Cannot Reign’.

If Kamala can have jaw-dropping plastic apples inserted in a facelift, why can’t Biden have a Brain Transplant?

While singing the refrains to ‘If I Only Had A Brain’, can’t someone out there kick off a Go Fund Me Just Fund for a Biden Brain Transplant?

Puulease, Pretty Puulease?

Do it for the Children while the Biden/Harris/AOC trio makes its way along the crazed Yellow Brick Road.

Meanwhile, here’s an updated list of Joe Biden gaffes proving he really needs a brain transplant:

BIDEN UNITY PLATFORM

—From The Rose Garden White House Transcripts

Last week, Joe Biden released his unity platform, developed with socialist Bernie Sanders, describing what he would do if elected President.  The Biden-Sanders agenda is — agenda is the most extreme platform of any major party nominee, by far, in American history.  I think it’s worse than, actually, Bernie’s platform; it’s gone so far right.  And he’s doing that because he’s begging for their vote.

But one of the things I just asked my people to do is just draw up for me, just quickly, some of the things that we’ve been hearing about over the last couple of weeks.  And these are actual key elements of the Biden-Sanders unity platform:

  • Abolish immigration detention

  • Grant mass amnesty
  • Vastly expand low-skilled immigration to the United States
  • Increase refugee admissions by 700 percent
  • Abolish law enforcement as we know it
  • End cash bail
  • Abolish completely the death penalty
  • Appoint social justice prosecutors in order to free violent criminals
  • End mandatory minimums
  • Incentivize prison closure
  • Abolish our police departments
  • End solitary confinement
  • Free federal housing for former inmates
  • Rejoin Paris Climate Accord
  • Mandate net-zero carbon emissions for homes, offices, and all new buildings by 2030
  • Mandate zero carbon emissions from power plants by 2035
  • Mandate net-zero carbon emissions by 2050
  • Mandate all 500,000 school buses and all 3 million government vehicles be changed to zero-emission vehicles within five years
  • Install 500,000 taxpayer-funded charging stations nationwide
  • End school choice
  • End tax credit scholarships serving disadvantaged students in 26 states
  • Oppose 14 million Americans with education savings accounts and get rid of school choice, having to do with school choice
  • Eliminate school choice in Washington, D.C.
  • Abolish all charter schools
  • Ban funding for charter schools in poor neighborhoods
  • Abolish educational standards
  • Enforce Obama-Biden’s radical AFFH

PEOPLESHEEP

— Tony Mangan, CFP’s Cowboy Poet

Some people tend to stand and wait
For someone else to spring the gate.
They stand and mind the things they keep,
Some people tend to be like sheep.

Politicians despots all,
Lead the sheep as they bawl
The sheep they follow, like they “oughta”
Alas, I fear, to final slaughter.

They put their heads down
And follow the leader
Reacting to the dogs
Who are setting the meter.

Ambling along without even a clue,
Believe they’re in tune with all that’s new,
Walk, eyes cast down, just like a snail
There’s nothing ahead–except somebody’s tail!

Fed-X Assassin Dead – AG Bill Barr Releases Statement…


The man who dressed as a Fed-X driver and attempted to assassinate Federal Judge Esther Salas has been found dead of an apparent ‘self-inflicted’ gunshot wound.

New Jersey […] The suspect was a white man who wore a face covering and a FedEx uniform, law enforcement sources told ABC News, and he used an ordinary car to make a getaway.

[…] The suspect was later found dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound near Liberty, New York, multiple law enforcement sources told ABC News. A municipal employee discovered the body in a car.

The deceased suspect was an attorney who had a case before Judge Salas in 2015, sources said. A FedEx package addressed to Judge Salas was discovered in the car, sources said.

“As a judge, she had threats from time to time, but everyone is saying that recently there had not been any,” said Mayor Womack, who is personal friends with the judge and her husband.  (read more)
