As Donald Trump says, we never win anymore. Even a third world country can easily bully the U.S. into groveling.
There’s one more American swimmer still being detained in Brazil. However, two more were allowed to leave and have departed the clusterfreak of a crime-ridden cesspool.

Attributable to USOC CEO Scott Blackmun:
Two U.S. Olympic swimmers (Gunnar Bentz and Jack Conger) have given statements to local authorities today regarding the incident first reported on Sunday, August 14, 2016. Their passports have been released and they recently departed Rio.
After providing a statement earlier in the week, a third (James Feigen) provided a revised statement this evening with the hope of securing the release of his passport as soon as possible.
Working in collaboration with the U.S. Consulate in Rio, we have coordinated the athletes’ cooperation with local authorities and ensured their safety throughout the process, but we have not seen the full statements provided by Bentz and Conger.
However, we understand that they describe the events that many have seen on surveillance video made publicly available today. As we understand it, the four athletes (Bentz, Conger, Feigen and Ryan Lochte) left France House early in the morning of August 14 in a taxi headed to the Olympic Village. They stopped at a gas station to use the restroom, where one of the athletes committed an act of vandalism. An argument ensued between the athletes and two armed gas station security staff, who displayed their weapons, ordered the athletes from their vehicle and demanded the athletes provide a monetary payment. Once the security officials received money from the athletes, the athletes were allowed to leave.
The behavior of these athletes is not acceptable, nor does it represent the values of Team USA or the conduct of the vast majority of its members. We will further review the matter, and any potential consequences for the athletes, when we return to the United States.
On behalf of the United States Olympic Committee, we apologize to our hosts in Rio and the people of Brazil for this distracting ordeal in the midst of what should rightly be a celebration of excellence.
With three days remaining in the Olympic Games, our primary focus will remain on supporting the athletes who are still competing and celebrating the achievements of those who have finished.
Swimmer Ryan Lochte continues to maintain that the American group, all white, were robbed by Brazilians with guns that they thought were police.
Obviously, the USOC has just called Ryan Lochte a liar, along with the rest of the group. His countrymen have turned against him, following the narrative laid out by the left.
This afternoon I saw that #ryanlochte and #lochtegate was trending on Twitter and waded in against the hate being shown him by his fellow white Americans.
When people pull guns on you and take your money, you’ve been robbed. The guys had no way to know that the uniformed officer was allegedly a security guard.
ABC News reports this point:
“I am not surprised to hear it though. They’ve gone this far and have failed to acknowledge that the robbery actually took place, so that would be the natural next step,” the statement said. “A gun was pointed at the swimmers and they were forced to get out of their cab and give up their money. No matter what happened at that gas station, the swimmers were robbed by people with a gun appearing to be law enforcement. No matter what country you are in that is robbery and robbery is a serious crime.”
It’s distressing to see so many white Americans turn on a dime against their Olympic hero, based on the word of third world corrupt officials.
There is no racial solidarity among American whites, but there should be.
We have our work cut out for us. Preaching solidarity offers fertile ground to plow. Whether the white dumbasses condemning Ryan Lochte realize it or not, America has been humiliated again by race traitors in the U.S. Olympic Committee.
Contrast the hatred spewed at our swimmers to the embrace of thugs Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin by blacks. Their solidarity is their strongest card and they play it every time.
It’s time whites did the same.
