Winning! NFL Yells “Calf Rope”

NFL COMMISSIONER ROGER GOODELL.

When a person is ready to submit or admit defeat, they sometimes will express that by yelling, “Calf rope.” I think it’s an old southern expression. It’s probably not familiar to today’s youth though.

Anyway, the NFL has lost the battle over the National Anthem that was fueled by President Donald Trump.

Here’s what the NFL plans to do.

Business Insider

As the debate rages over protests during the national anthem before NFL games, Commissioner Roger Goodell now says the league has a plan to end the protests and unify the league.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter has obtained a letter sent to all 30 teams in which Goodell says the league needs to “move past this controversy” but also hints at a plan to address the concerns being raised by players and help give them a bigger voice in addressing social issues outside the NFL.

“The controversy over the Anthem is a barrier to having honest conversations and making real progress on the underlying issues,” Goodell wrote. “We need to move past this controversy, and we want to do that together with our players.”

Goodell goes on to write that the league has developed a plan it will share with the players during next week’s league meeting.

“Building on many discussions with clubs and players, we have worked to develop a plan that we will review with you at next week’s League meeting,” Goodell said. “This would include such elements as an in-season platform to promote the work of our players on these core issues, and that will help to promote positive change in our country.”

Goodell does emphasize that the NFL, like many fans, believes “everyone should stand for the National Anthem.” Presumably, the plan would also include a new rule requiring players to be on the sideline and standing during the anthems, something the NFL is reportedly “considering.”

Here is the entire letter from Goodell, via Schefter:

“We live in a country that can feel very divided. Sports, and especially the NFL, brings people together and lets them set aside those divisions, at least for a few hours. The current dispute over the National Anthem is threatening to erode the unifying power of our game, and is now dividing us, and our players, from many fans across the country.

“I’m very proud of our players and owners who have done the hard work over the past year to listen, understand and attempt to address the underlying issues within their communities. At our September committee meetings, we heard directly from several players about why these issues are so important to them and how we can support their work. And last week, we met with the leadership of the NFLPA and more players to advance the dialogue.

“Like many of our fans, we believe that everyone should stand for the National Anthem. It is an important moment in our game. We want to honor our flag and our country, and our fans expect that of us. We also care deeply about our players and respect their opinions and concerns about critical social issues. The controversy over the Anthem is a barrier to having honest conversations and making real progress on the underlying issues. We need to move past this controversy, and we want to do that together with our players.

“Building on many discussions with clubs and players, we have worked to develop a plan that we will review with you at next week’s League meeting. This would include such elements as an in-season platform to promote the work of our players on these core issues, and that will help to promote positive change in our country. We want to ensure that any work at the League level is consistent with the work that each club is doing in its own community, and that we dedicate a platform that can enable these initiatives to succeed. Additionally, we will continue the unprecedented dialogue with our players.

“I expect and look forward to a full and open discussion of these issues when we meet next week in New York. Everyone involved in the game needs to come together on a path forward to continue to be a force for good within our communities, protect the game, and preserve our relationship with fans throughout the country. The NFL is at its best when we ourselves are unified. In that spirit, let’s resolve that next week we will meet this challenge in a unified and positive way.”

What you’ve just read is a politician trying to straddle the fence. On the one hand the blacks who make up the majority of players have the ability to go on strike. On the other, the fans have been boycotting the game to a sufficient degree that it’s surely made an impact on the bottom line.

There’s still a lot of negotiating to do. As opponents of the sport, we hope that Roger fails.

Universities Nationwide Replaced Columbus Day with Indigenous People’s Day as Trump Heralded His Greatness

All countries throughout history have invaded, genocided, bullied, and exploited their weaker neighbors. But to hear American universities tell it, the USA and Western Europe invented these impulses in human nature. Not only did white people invent them, Euro peoples are the only peoples on earth who ever do these things.

To college students, the world is binary:

White = evil

Nonwhite = gentle innocence

Thus, whites owe it to the world to self-genocide.

Fox News

Harvard University is the latest of a growing number of colleges to add “Indigenous Peoples’ Day” to its calendar, an effort, proponents say, to reject colonialism represented by Columbus Day.

Indigenous Peoples’ Day was first adopted in Berkeley, Calif. in 1992, but it’s recently become more popular on campuses nationwide.

Instead of celebrating explorer Christopher Columbus, students demonstrate against colonialism through events such as planting trees, hosting open mics to condemn so-called exploitation of weaker countries and providing guest lectures on Native American grievances.

Harvard’s decision comes a year after the Cambridge City Council unanimously decided to rename Columbus Day, The Harvard Crimson reported.

Nadeem Mazen, the Cambridge city councilor who proposed the renaming, said the move was intended to reclaim the day for Native Americans killed after Columbus landed.

White House: Trump’s “calm before the storm” Remark is “extremely serious”

Let’s suppose that President Trump’s mysterious remarks should be taken seriously and that they involve North Korea.

What have we got to work with?

Newsweek reports that according to the Norks, that the U.S. tried to kill Kim last May. Is another assassination attempt coming?

VOA raises the possibility of a Chinese takeover of the North.

The Sun quotes Russian sources as saying that Kim has a missile capable of hitting the United States.

Finally, consider a few of the wilder ideas floating around the Internet.

From the comments at Zerohedge

The Norks are preparing a launch they say can hit the west coast of North America. On October 9 (Monday), North Korea will celebrate the anniversary of its communist political party controlled by Lil’ Kim, his father, and grandfather. There will no doubt be a grand military parade showcasing North Korea’s military hardware — missiles, tanks, artillery, etc… and the massive number of North Korean troops.

WHAT BETTER TIME FOR THE U.S. TO STRIKE AND DESTROY MUCH OF THE NORTH’S MILITARY CAPABILITY?! My question is, Will anyone REALLY care if the Norks nuke LA or Frisco?!

Trump is a MUSLIM. He is working with his Jew daughter and Kushner to form an alliance between Muslims and Jews for the final battle against Christianity. Why was his first state visit to Saudi Arabia and then Israel immediately after, with his Jew-in-law and daughter in tow?

???

(Stop down voting, stop calling me insane, and think about it for a minute. The sooner you wake up, the sooner you can prepare.)

Not knowing the nature of the threat, how do you prep? Do you buy more beans and rice? Do you build a bomb shelter? Do you buy bullion in anticipation of a currency collapse? Do you buy another thousand rounds of ammo? What the hell do you do? Comments like this, raise the level of anxiety without providing a single bit of useful information. Then again maybe it was a wink and a nod to the ones that were listening to do all of the above.

Fake Threats: terrorists, EMPs, nukes, Syria, NK, Russia, China, guns, nationalism, tribalism, white men.

Real Threats: government and its massive swarm of parasitic lackies/lickspittles.

Trump’s Cryptic Message: “This is the calm before the storm.”

War with North Korea, Iran, Syria, Russia, China?

Or is Trump on the verge of really draining the swamp–taking out the (((Deep State.))) Alternatively, he may be talking through his hat, throwing his enemies off balance.

Like he says, we’ll have to wait and see.

Seen at GLP.

Did the Russians Do This?

Obama Ripped by Butt Hurt Blacks Over Chicongo Presidential Library

OBAMA LIBRARY. LOOKS LIKE AN OUTHOUSE.

Blacks aren’t happy because Obama won’t put in writing all the gibsmedat that he’s promised them in relation to his new presidential library going up in the black part of Chicago.

No matter how much is given to them, they always agitate for more.

This story is the top headline on Drudge tonight.

Excerpt from the Chicago Tribune

Now that Obama is about to build his presidential center in Woodlawn’s Jackson Park, some residents are wary of his ability to transform neighborhoods without doing harm to longtime residents who could end up displaced by gentrification.

A nasty fight over a community benefits agreement with the Obama Foundation has exposed an unexpected rift between the former president and some of the South Side residents who helped lift him to prominence.

Not everyone on the South Side, it seems, thinks Obama did enough for black folks during his eight years as president. And as he prepares to build a presidential center that will pay tribute to his legacy, some South Siders are calling him out for what they consider broken promises.

Obama consistently has asked residents to trust that he will do right by them. The presidential center, he insists, will provide a wealth of opportunities specifically designed to meet the needs of Chicagoans who have long been overlooked.

But this time, according to one activist, there will be no “Amen, kiss the ring.”

Obama opened the door to the backlash when he appeared on a video at the foundation’s first public meeting last week and said flat-out that there would be no community benefits agreement.

Such a legal document, he said, would force the foundation to side with certain activist groups and leave others out. And, he added, it would open the door for other groups to step up and start making demands.

The Obama Library South Side Community Benefits Agreement Coalition, founded by five prominent community organizations, has been leading the call for a document guaranteeing jobs and low-income housing protections. But it also wants him to deliver other items on its dream list, things he cannot control, such as placing librarians in every school.

In reality, it is asking him to fill the void created through decades of neglect by the city. That kind of change, once again, is unrealistic.

At a community forum Wednesday night, a discussion about the proposed agreement morphed into a shouting match over whether Obama actually loves black people. One man in the audience yelled, “No” while others alluded to the fact that Obama is biracial.

Hip-hop artist and community activist Che “Rhymefest” Smith tried to defend the president — but only to a point.

“I don’t believe he understands everything about black people,” Smith said. “But he married a black woman from the South Side, and she feels our pain. Our pain is her pain.”

It’s just amazing how blacks believe that others are obligated to do for them. It seems to only rarely occur among the members of this wretched race that adults do things for themselves.

Judge Orders Release of Crazy Woman Who Breached White House Perimeter 5 Times

Would a man be cut loose like Alicia Keppler? Or would he be sentenced to prison?

NBC Washington

A judge set free a South Carolina woman who admitted breaching security at the White House five times since 2016, including during the annual Easter Egg Roll in March.

Alicia Keppler, 32, must return to her home state of South Carolina and is prohibited from returning to Washington, D.C., for a year.

At a sentencing hearing Tuesday, a federal judge ordered Keppler also meet for interviews with the U.S. Secret Service for the next 12 months. The judge said Keppler, who has been held in a Washington jail since her most recent arrest in July, had served a sufficient amount of time in custody.

Keppler admitted a series of recent security breaches, including incursions of White House security perimeters during each of the last two 4th of July holidays.

According to court filings from prosecutors, Keppler also jumped a bicycle rack security barrier in March 2016.

“During that incident, Keppler claimed she lived at the White House,” the court filings said. “Items in her backpack included a bus ticket, a revoked South Carolina concealed weapons permit, a spiral notebook with letters written to an individual named ‘James,’ and the Gettysburg Address. The writings in the notebook did not indicate a motive for the White House penetrations, however, near the end of the writings Keppler mentioned visiting the White House and thoughts of suicide.”

Prosecutors said Keppler’s crime was a “serious one,” because it triggered a major response from law enforcement, endangering the safety of agents and nearby tourists. Prosecutors and defense attorneys said Keppler, who has a young daughter, is battling drug addiction.

“Given the defendant’s long history of erratic behavior and her seeming obsession with gaining access to the White House, the government believes that the defendant would benefit from comprehensive mental health services,” prosecutors said in their court filings.

Keppler’s attorney declined to comment after court proceedings Thursday. Keppler, who wore an orange jail jump suit during today’s proceedings, told the judge, “I’m good,” when asked to speak.

A judge denied prosecutors’ request Keppler be ordered to undergo psychiatric evaulations performed by U.S. Secret Service psychologists.

Keppler is one of at least 22 people prosecuted for breaching security at the White House or US Capitol since 2014, according to a News-4 I-Team investigation. Several of those arrested were repeat offenders, according to court filings reviewed by the I-Team.

We’ll be reading about Alicia again, I’m afraid. Her kind of crazy runs deep. And to make it worse, she has a child.
