Many people have reacted to the national anthem’s protests. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development and former presidential candidate Ben Carson made a statement on the issue today. He followed up the comments from President Trump in Alabama.
Trump said during the rally that he’d “love to see one of these NFL owners when somebody disrespects our flag, to say “Get that son of a b–––– off the field right now. Out. He’s fired! He’s fired.” Here is his statement below.
Ben Carson said on his Facebook that NFL Sundays used to be fun to watch and that has all changed since the protests. He wrote:
Here we are at another NFL Sunday. That used to represent a time of fun, games and unity. I hope we can return to that situation soon.”
He then continued by saying that even though everyone has a right to express themselves… there is a “time and place for everything. Last week I saw a story about pre-adolescent players being drawn into the ‘take a knee’ protests. Does anyone honestly believe that encouraging even our youth to believe they are victims of our society will actually help us come together”
He didn’t let up: “We would encourage them and all Americans to utilize their influence to truly draw people together and not be manipulated into doing the opposite under the guise of unity.”
Share this if you agree with Ben Carson 100% and wish that the NFL would get back to playing games and not protesting!

Well, folks, the unthinkable has just happened. Just when you though all of Hollywood had gone and lost their minds, Taylor Swift steps up and shows them how Americans SHOULD act.
You see, most of the major celebs out there used the horrible Las Vegas shooting as an opportunity to push gun control. Swift, on the other hand, decided to make it all about the hero cops who stopped the shooter.
When Taylor Swift heard that cops had been shot and even killed in the line of duty. She decided to show her own local cops, some of whom were injured at the concert, love that is so rarely shown to police by sending the entire department bouquets of flowers.
Even more to her credit, it was not just some lame PR stunt. In fact, Taylor Swift didn’t let anyone know what she was doing. The news broke when the officer who was shot, LAPD Intel Analyst Kimberlee shared out the pictures of the bouquet she received from Swift.
Isn’t it a shame that more celebrities or even people, in general, cannot take a second to do an act of kindness for their local police? Let’s she them all how it’s done by sharing this out and leave a big old “Thank You” for Taylor Swift.
Feds: WEINER’S SEIZED LAPTOP Shows Hillary Clinton Covered Up SEX CRIMES With 15 yr old DURING ElectionBy Manly Man — 6 months ago
Anthony Weiner, the once ambitious New York congressman who spoke passionately for the victims of 9/11, named a champion of the little guys, and don’t forget his much-publicized romance with Hillary’s aid Huma Abedin, had boosted his glamour to the top of the charts.
Now, has quickly become a big public joke that continues to humiliate himself, including everyone else who was hiding behind his dirty secret.
Anthony Weiner has unfortunately become another sick punchline who was caught in a sick perverted scandal with a 15-year-old girl.
Reported by truepundit:
Even as Anthony Weiner’s sexting victim was contemplating suicide, Hillary Clinton who knew about the illicit texting did nothing to intervene to help the girl.
Hillary’s silence allowed Weiner to harass the 15-year-old high school sophomore for another four months.
Fortunately, the girl is recovering from the ordeal and Weiner is on his way to federal prison, have to report today to begin his sentence for tormenting the youth with sexual texts and phone calls.
But investigators who worked the underage child pornography case against Anthony Weiner confirm the laptop seized from the former congressman contained proof that Hillary Clinton knew he was engaging in a long sexual relationship with a minor but did not intervene to alert any state or federal authorities to protect the 15 year old.
Not blowing the whistle on the serial sexter allowed Weiner to keep sexting the youth via cell phone and internet chats for another four more months, law enforcement sources said. While Clinton was busy campaigning to be the first female US president with Weiner’s wife and aide Huma Abedin, he was at home sending the 15-year-old online porn and divulging his rape fantasies to the girl. Weiner also apparently talked on the telephone with the girl, based on intelligence gleaned from the laptop.
Instead of rescuing the minor from a sex-obsessed Weiner, Clinton who was the Democratic presidential candidate at the time and eventual front runner, counseled her long time aide Abedin, to end her relationship with him because bad publicity could harm the campaign. Clinton and Abedin discovered Weiner’s sexting with the minor in April 2016 and that he had already been corresponding with the youth for months.
Neither Clinton nor Abedin apparently did anything to stop the abuse of the minor. Instead, the repeated incidents — which breach a host of state and federal laws — were kept quiet.
Yet Clinton, who champions herself as a women’s rights advocate, did nothing to help the girl. And it gets even worse. Law enforcement sources said the high school sophomore was suffering from depression and told Weiner during over seven months of correspondences that she often wanted to end her life. Weiner did nothing to try to stop the girl from hurting herself.
Neither did Clinton or Abedin.
All the is warehoused on Weiner’s silver Dell Inspiron 15 7000 laptop, which the FBI obtained via search warrant in October 2016, law enforcement sources said..
That means the FBI knew Clinton did nothing to try and stop Weiner from repeatedly sexting a minor during the election. And the FBI likewise has apparently done nothing since the election to charge — or even question — Clinton for what appears to be intentionally endangering a minor entangled in a child pornography case. Ex-FBI Director James Comey previously said his agents combed Weiner’s laptop prior to the election and found no evidence indicating Hillary Clinton had engaged in any criminal conduct. Any. Somehow, Comey and his understudies were able to comb through over approximately 600,000 emails and files on the computer in a mere week. Yet found nothing linking Clinton to the Weiner child pornography case?
That information does not jibe with law enforcement sources. According to their intelligence, there was discussion of charging Clinton with New York statutes for not alerting law enforcement that a minor was being repeatedly exploited. But such talk was ultimately quashed by federal prosecutors who said this was now an FBI and Justice Department case and no charges like that would originate from New York or from local law enforcement where the girl lived.
Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, who presided over the New York probe, kicked the can down the road to avoid implicating Clinton during the election, law enforcement sources said.
It was clear that Clinton was to get a free pass although NYPD said investigators held out some hope she would be charged after the election, especially when she lost. That never happened because she was insulated by Bharara who was jockeying to become the next U.S. Attorney general if Clinton won the White House.
“They (feds) sat on it,” one NYPD source said. “Fucking disgraceful.”
Some of the facts that Abedin, Clinton and the FBI apparently intentionally squelched include:
• Weiner coaxed video chats in which he asked the girl to undress and touch herself and repeat his name out loud.
• The girl told Weiner that she was a sophomore in high school and trying to get a learner’s permit to and learn how to drive.
• Weiner knew the girl was suffering from depression and occasional suicidal thoughts yet urged the youth to dress up in ‘school-girl’ outfits and pressed her to engage in rape fantasies.
• Weiner repeatedly told the high school student that he wanted to force himself on her when her father was out of town and away from the house.
• Weiner forced the girl to write him a letter saying that their online relationship was friendly and at no time did he engage in sexual conversation or innuendo. The youth complied. That letter is on the lap top and in the FBI’s possession, NYPD said. Weiner may have provided a copy to Clinton to cover her in case these allegations exploded during the campaign.
• Weiner used his cell phone to correspond with the girl and the texting apps Confide and Kik as well as desktop Facebook and Skype from the girl’s bedroom while her parents were often asleep in the next room.
• Likewise alarming, and largely due to Abedin and Clinton’s silence, Weiner continued to sext the teenager for approximately four months after Clinton learned of the illegal relationship.
Weiner, who employed the alias of “T-Dog” to correspond with the youth on one texting app, texted the minor after meeting her on Twitter in January 2016. The hundreds of correspondences included exchanging explicit pictures, pornography, sexual texts and video chats as well as telephone calls.

While mainstream media outlets continue to attack Melanie Trump, another former First Lady comes to her defense with words of praise.
Laura Bush has first hand experience with the difficulties surrounding life as the FLOTUS and since vacating the position has chosen to stay out of the limelight regarding the performances of her predecessors, until now. In a recent interview with CNN, Laura Bush presented an attitude of admiration when discussing Melania Trump and the fabulous job she is doing so far.
Every First Lady has an important ‘project' that tends to be their sole purpose while trailing their husbands in terms of political campaigns. Hillary focused on healthcare, Michelle focused on health and nutrition for America's youth through school meal plans and Laura Bush focused on literature and libraries. Now it's Melania's turn and media scrutiny is bursting as is typical with anything regarding the First Family.
While Laura Bush is known for keeping to herself regarding these topics, her norm changed when Melania came into the picture because despite the stellar job she is doing, and try to remember she is a foreigner who barely speaks the language, media outlets continue to display purely negative reporting and Laura strongly disagrees.
“I just think she’s doing a lovely job,” Bush told CNN as reported by the Washington Examiner, “She’s a beautiful woman. She’s a wonderful representative for the United States.”
Laura said she has spoken to the Trump’s when she visited for tea and wishes them the “very, very best.”
“I know what it’s like to live there,” she added, “I know how difficult every decision is and what the scrutiny is by everyone that has an opinion, every single person has an opinion on the people that live there, and I’m certainly aware of that.”
Take a look, Hillary and Michelle, because that's is the classy way to treat a women taking on a difficult role that you yourself struggled with, and without an unfounded level of criticism that make matters even worse.
