Mike Pence’s Walk Out Was Exactly What Was Needed

***
For about a year now, a coterie of spoiled millionaires has been using the setting of what used to be the nation’s favorite spectator sport to advertise their contempt for a nation that has given them a lot and asked for absolutely nothing in return…other than a tiny bit of pretend respect.

(*Isn't it cute how the article from Red State misdirects the reason for the knee protest , and openly admits sonofabitchgate is over pretend respect for Our Flag ?
Mike Pence’s Walk Out Was Exactly What Was Needed if we're talking about Training Parrots!)

RED STATE: Pence Walkout Was a Cynical, Expensive, Pre-Planned Stunt

Susan Wright noted earlier that Mike Pence walked out of the Colts/49ers game, ostensibly because he was offended that the 49ers decided to “take a knee” during the national anthem.

Here’s the thing: he knew this was going to happen>>>

Harvey Weinstein, Fox News, and the Power of Self-Interest

Many victims might have been able to expose him, but ambition held them back.

turns out that basically everyone in Hollywood knew that Harvey Weinstein sexually harasses women, abuses his employees, and has a violent streak. It was one of those things we call an “open secret,” a secret perhaps even more open than the persistent rumors about Roger Ailes’s or Bill O’Reilly’s toxic misconduct at Fox News.

Yet Weinstein continued to enjoy the staggering perks and privileges of a successful movie mogul. The most powerful politicians sought his favor. The best actors wanted to work in his films. He was feted around the world as the man who could bring home Oscar gold. And all the while, he wasn’t just a progressive in good standing, he was actively celebrated for his alleged commitment to social justice.

How does this happen ?>>>

'You can't hurt me, I don't have a film career': Nathan Lane breaks his silence on how Harvey Weinstein 'threatened to destroy him' and 'threw him against a wall' at Hillary Clinton's birthday 17 years ago

Lane, now 61, alluded to the incident for the first time on Saturday night when he was speaking with Michael Schulman at the New Yorker Festival after news broke that Weinstein had sexually harassed female employees and movie stars.

'You can't hurt me, I don't have a film career,' Lane said he told Weinstein when the film mogul threatened to destroy him all those years ago.

On that same night in 2000, Weinstein also reportedly lashed out at an assistant who was supposed to be minding his reserved couch while he was onstage speaking.

Meryl Streep slams 'disgraceful' Harvey Weinstein and calls Rose McGowan, Ashley Judd and his other victims 'brave heroes' for exposing the mogul, adding she NEVER knew about incidents of sexual harassment

Meryl Streep has finally spoken out about Harvey Weinstein in a lengthy statement released early Monday.

'The disgraceful news about Harvey Weinstein has appalled those of us whose work he championed, and those whose good and worthy causes he supported,' said Streep.

'The intrepid women who raised their voices to expose this abuse are our heroes.'

She went on to say in the statement, which was first obtained by Huffington Post: 'One thing can be clarified. Not everybody knew.'

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Anyone who didn't know about it was in denial, because Harvey's "predilections" were well known in Hollywood back when I worked there. But there were two rules one followed if one wished to keep their careers. Never criticize the moguls and never criticize the Jews!

Harvey Weinstein's Lawyer Quits After Two Days As Democrats Scramble To Distance Themselves

Harvey Weinstein's attorney Lisa Bloom cut ties suddenly with her "radioactive" movie mogul client in a terse Saturday tweet.

“I have resigned as an advisor to Harvey Weinstein,” wrote Bloom - ironically a women’s rights advocate - who was brought in after the Miramax Films co-founder was accused by the NYT of spending decades sexually harassing the women he worked with. “My understanding is that Mr. Weinstein and his board are moving toward an agreement.”

James Woods retires from acting after saying he's blacklisted because he's conservative

Just weeks after James Woods said he was blacklisted in Hollywood because of his conservative views, the Oscar-nominated actor said he was retiring from the industry.

Woods tweeted this summer that he had “accepted the fact that” he was blacklisted from Hollywood because of his views. He has said being conservative has made it tough to find work in Hollywood the past few years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

James, I deeply empathize!

'Where's Harvey Weinstein?' SNL stays SILENT on sexual abuse allegations against movie mogul much to the anger of social media who accuse the show of liberal hypocrisy

Saturday Night Live joined the ranks of entertainment programs being called out for not commenting on sexual harassment allegations against former movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

Social media users skewered the decades old live sketch comedy show, with many highlighting the programs hypocrisy in not going after one of Hollywood's biggest players.

'Why didn't big mouth Michael Che' say anything about Harvey Weinstein on SNL "Weekend Update"? He's got so much opinion about everything else,' Pastor Darrell Scott asked contentiously.

Yikes! Politically correct Dennis loses his Menace: The catapult's gone, Gnasher's teeth are fixed and Walter (or is it Jacob Rees-Mogg?) isn't even a softie in the remake of Beano classic

For generations, he has been the terror of the schoolyard, striking fear into ‘softies’ everywhere.

But the latest incarnation of Dennis The Menace is his most politically correct yet, with his catapult replaced by an iPad – and with his pea-shooter given a high-tech makeover – and a pet hamster called Galahad.

His distinctive black-and-red striped jumper is almost the only link with the beloved Beano character of old. Even his canine sidekick Gnasher has had a makeover, with his huge trademark fangs swapped for rows of perfect small white teeth.

Where once Dennis had no other aim than to spread chaos and mayhem, the 2017 version is all about ‘inclusivity’, say producers of the new CBBC show.

Victoria and Abdul – Re-Writing History to indoctrinate Todays Society

If I was writing this as a mere film review then I honestly couldn’t say much. I wasn’t as impressed as I had expected to be. Dame Judi Dench was wonderful and the filming and costumes are superb. But overall it was pretty boring, trite and shallow and about as historically accurate as Braveheart! A two star film at maximum. Most reviewers I read seem to agree.

But as a moderate dud it would not have left me so disturbed. What bothered me were a couple of things – the history and the current day indoctrination.

The FIRE THAT SON OF A B _ _ _ H EFFECT:

Tom Brady has been sacked 16 times through the first five weeks of the 2017 season. Last season, Brady played 12 games and was sacked just 15 times. He’s on pace to get hit 105.6 times after taking 33 hits through five games.

One has to wonder if the 40-year-old quarterback can take an average of more than three sacks and almost eight hits a game for 16 weeks — and perhaps even more.

“Just football. I’ll be there next Sunday,” Brady said of the hits in a postgame press conference in Tampa.

Brady Has Never Taken A Knee
Brady Founded The Lock Arm Demonstration

Harvey Weinstein's Lawyer Gave $10,000 To Manhattan DA After He Declined To File Sexual Assault Charges

Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein’s lawyer delivered $10,000 to Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. in 2015, in the months after Vance’s office decided not to prosecute Weinstein over sexual assault allegations, according to an International Business Times review of campaign finance documents. That contribution from attorney David Boies — who previously headlined a fundraiser for Vance — was a fraction of the $116,000 that Boies, his son and his law partner have delivered to the Democrat during his political career.

Celebrities Ramp Up Attacks on Gun Owners Following Vegas Shooting: ‘Gun Control Now’

Hollywood stars continued to vilify and attack gun owners and the NRA following the horrific mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival in Las Vegas Sunday night that left at least 59 people dead and more than 500 injured.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is interesting is how many of those celebrities found fame and fortune in movies showing huge amounts of gun violence.

And again, when a Muslim commits an act of terror, the government and corporate media insist we not blame all Muslims, but when a shooter commits an act of violence that same government blames all gun owners for it!

Who's afraid of Barry Seal? 

I became one of many reporters who tried to untangle Seal's story and, though that task ultimately proved impossible, I did learn a lot about him. But now, the bits and pieces collected about Seal have provided enough material — enough "true lies" — for Hollywood to weave into films that enlarge his legend.

But his actual story is littered with dead ends — secrets that are still being carefully kept — especially in Arkansas. And here, I'm sorry to say, some police records that were open to the public 20 years ago are apparently no longer available.

FLASHBACK 2015 - Report: At least 50 teams were paid by Department of Defense for patriotic displays

A government oversight report released Wednesday by Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake offers new details about how the Department of Defense paid professional sports teams and leagues for patriotic displays honoring American soldiers.

The report expands on one that became public last May and resulted in changes to the National Defense Authorization Act for 2016, prohibiting the expenditures and calling on leagues and teams to donate the money to organizations that support the military, veterans and their families.

“What we take issue with,” wrote Flake, who, like McCain, is a Republican from Arizona, “is the average fan thinking teams are doing this on behalf of the military.”

Record $274 Million Verdict Awarded Against Talk Show Host After Radio Rants

New Hampshire jury has awarded a record-breaking $274 million verdict – which attorneys say is at least ten times greater than the previous state record for a personal injury claim – against a radio talk show host and businessman who accused three other businessmen of dealing “heroin” and “machine guns” in a warehouse. Those allegations came through a series of politically-charged billboards, online broadcasts, radio shows, and Web postings.
The lawsuit was filed by Dick Anagnost, who runs his own investment company; Andrew Crews, the CEO of a series of car dealerships; and William Greiner, a bank chairman

Spotify Is Worth $16 Billion And I’m Getting Scared

Spotify first launched on October 7, 2008. Since then, the company has yet to post a profit. Losses have also continued to increase. Net losses doubled in 2016 to $600 million.

Like SoundCloud, instead of focusing on building a sustainable business model, Spotify has spent the money it has yet to make. According to details shared with Digital Music News, Spotify has sunk massive amounts into its World Trade Center lease.

How much? The company has spent more than $566 million on a 17-year lease, with almost $31 million in upfront payments required. The contract works out to $33.29 million a year on base rent alone, or $2.77 million a month.

Spotify’s opulent spending has caused more than a few investors to become anxious. While a lot of hype surrounds the company’s IPO, some have compared the platform to Twitter and Snapchat. Both companies have disappointed investors following their public listings.

flashback:12/18/2016: THE ODDS OF LEGALIZED SPORTS BETTING IN DONALD TRUMP'S AMERICA

***
The four major professional sports leagues – the NFL, NBA, Major League Baseball and the NHL – along with the behemoth NCAA, have been the biggest obstacles to sports betting expansion, all often working in concert to wield PASPA as the weapon against such expansion. As Wallach smartly points out, though, the law itself notes that a sports organization can only seek injunctive relief for PASPA violations when that specific organization’s games are the basis of the violation.

In other words, the NFL does not have standing under PASPA to say, “Hey, New Jersey can’t bet on the NBA.” That’s up to the discretion of the NBA, though again, so far, the major sports organizations have played ball together to stifle legalized sports betting –>>>

Trump-supporting Tim Allen claims his Last Man Standing show was cancelled because it featured a funny and likable conservative

Tim Allen has come out to say he believes his television show - Last Man Standing - was cancelled after six seasons because it featured a likable conservative man as the main character.

Last Man Standing was cancelled in May by ABC after six seasons - a decision which came as a shock to both fans and cast-members alike.

And Allen, who has been open about his support for President Donald Trump, says that the cancellation ultimately came down to politics.

The Militarization of the NFL

Professional sports should stop shilling for the warfare state.

Before 2009, Colin Kaepernick would have had to find some other way to protest racism against African Americans. That’s because until the height of the Iraq War, NFL football players weren’t even required to leave the locker room for the national anthem, much less stand for it.

(*Everybody's Mad As Hell at The Pitsburgh Steelers for reverting to that old NFL policy
That seems like the simplest solution .
Before the knee protests players didn't exactly stand at attention while the anthem was performed
. you'd see them doing stand in place Calisthenics , toe raises , trunk twists , bouncing from one foot to the other , grasping a towel that's hanging around the neck , etc.
They're there to play football , not to praise ceaser I MEAN TRUMP , and they're not members of the armed forces . )

For the Sake of Art: ‘Biblical’ Film ‘Mother!’ Depicts Mob Eating A Baby

Its ironic, and makes sense, that somehow, the writer and director of this film managed to work climate change (allegorically, of course) into the plot. Is it art? Doubtful.

Let the viewer beware. It’s also spattered in blood. In the end, the God character is carrying the “charred body” of the mother, and when she rips out her heart, well. It looks almost exactly like what would happen if someone did rip out their heart. Oh, and the poster displays all you need to know about the gore.

Director of Hollywood Bomb Blames Americans Rejecting ‘Science’ for Flop

The director of a film reviled by the American people highlighted rejecting science as an explanation for why the movie bombed. In an interview with The Frame on Thursday, Mother! Director Darren Aronofsky responded to the movie’s highly unusual F-grade Cinemascore this way: “... You have other people who basically believe in the power of a iPhone that they can communicate to 35 million people in a blink of an eye, yet they don't believe in science in other ways.”

According to Box Office Mojo, the film has grossed $10.1 million as of September 21 and had a budget of $30 million.

The NFL: Big Business With Big Tax Breaks

If You Build It ...

Besides the tax exemption, the NFL can also get a break through big stadium deals. Take, for example, the Dallas Cowboys.

In the late 1990s, the Dallas Cowboys and the team's owner, Jerry Jones, began plans to expand their stadium or build a new one. Jones shopped in and around Dallas for years, asking for public assistance to fund the stadium.

He found an audience in Arlington, a city just outside of Dallas. The price tag for the public was $325 million. (Jones was responsible for the balance of the money for the $1.2 billion stadium. Dallas News says Jones' contribution "was paid with commercial loans, league funding and proceeds from a ticket and parking tax.")

Paid Patriotism: Six Ways The NFL Is Directly Connected To The Government

There's a reason why football is called America's pastime. Americans —if they watch the sport or not— are unconsciously paying for it. Controversy brought on by NFL star Colin Kaepernick taking a knee during the National Anthem last season, and subsequently looking for employment this season, has put the organization founded in 1920 under a microscope.

Non-Profit Status.
Believe it or not, the NFL is non-profit. The IRS expanded Section 501(c)6 of the Internal Revenue Code, which "provides for the exemption of business leagues, chambers of commerce, real estate boards, boards of trade and professional football leagues, which are not organization." As noted by The Washington Post, this exception means the NFL’s headquarters in New York led by Goodell is spared tax payments that some estimate to be $10 million annually— because the teams and not the NFL make money.

Sep 26 12:35

How the NFL Fleeces Taxpayers

Taxpayers fund the stadiums, antitrust law doesn't apply to broadcast deals, the league enjoys nonprofit status, and Commissioner Roger Goodell makes $30 million a year. It's time to stop the public giveaways to America's richest sports league—and to the feudal lords who own its teams.
Last year was a busy one for public giveaways to the National Football League. In Virginia, Republican Governor Bob McDonnell, who styles himself as a budget-slashing conservative crusader, took $4 million from taxpayers’ pockets and handed the money to the Washington Redskins, for the team to upgrade a workout facility. Hoping to avoid scrutiny, McDonnell approved the gift while the state legislature was out of session. The Redskins’ owner, Dan Snyder, has a net worth estimated by Forbes at $1 billion. But even billionaires like to receive expensive gifts.
And on and on........

Revoke the NFL's Antitrust Exemption

Indeed, were the NFL not subject to an antitrust exemption granted to it by our compromised Congress, thanks to the sport’s lobbyists having spread “beaucoup” money all over Capitol Hill, the club of uber rich owners who make their own rules with impunity could be charged under RICO, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, for price fixing, market division and other illegal anti-competitive acts. As a former Justice Department Antitrust Division prosecutor who was on the trial team that broke up AT&T during the Reagan administration for price fixing and market division, take it from me!

Patriots fans rain boos on own players for anthem protest ...

Before Sunday’s Texans-Patriots matchup in Foxborough, Mass., about 20 Patriots players, according to ESPN, took a knee during the national anthem, the first time anyone on the team had joined the growing protest.

In return, a loud chorus of boos was heard sandwiching the singing of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

Is the Anti-American NFL Self Destructing?

The first amendment does not make anyone immune from the consequences of their actions when their speech is repulsive to the people or if the President disagrees. It is just words he said, if he had them arrested for their speech or sent troops to bully the players to stand for the national anthem against their will. Then I would oppose the President if he did that. The POTUS did not infringe on the player’s right to free speech. He was just showing his passion opposing what the players were doing,
