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!

Kirsters Baish| Although the mainstream media has been completely biased in reporting about the situation in Puerto Rico following two massive hurricanes and how President Trump and his administration have been handling the situation, the people of Puerto Rico have spoken, and they are very pleased with President Trump’s actions. President Trump made the trip to Puerto Rico to assess the damage himself and aid the people affected by the storms. Geraldo Rivera explained to Fox & Friends on Friday that Trump was doing everything he could.
Rivera actually has family that resides in Puerto Rico, and they witnessed for themselves Trump’s visit. They explained that 90 to 95 percent of the people President Trump met on his trip were enthusiastic about his visit.
Rivera explained on air that the media has a way of distorting the truth in order to fit their narrative. He gave a clear example when he spoke about Trump praising the island for their swift actions to make sure that Hurricane Maria had such a low death toll. (16 people died instead of 1,800 that died in Hurricane Katrina.) But, the mainstream media jumped at the chance to attack President Trump, claiming that he downplayed the loss of life.
Rivera stated that reports against President Trump in this case have been “fake news.” He explained that New York Times columnist Paul Krugman stated on Twitter that there was a cholera outbreak in Puerto Rico… this was 100% fake news.
President Trump tweeted on Friday to explain just how much support he had for the people of Puerto Rico.
The wonderful people of Puerto Rico, with their unmatched spirit, know how bad things were before the H's. I will always be with them!

“The wonderful people of Puerto Rico, with their unmatched spirit, know how bad things were before the H’s. I will always be with them!” Trump wrote.
…We cannot keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been amazing (under the most difficult circumstances) in P.R. forever!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 12, 2017
Then, on Thursday, President Trump wrote that first responders would not be staying on the island forever. He was obviously trying to get a rise out of his enemies.
White House Chief of Staff John Kelly stated on Thursday that Trump’s tweet actually shows the correct response to a disaster.
“I think he said the U.S. military and FEMA can’t be there forever. Right?” he questioned the reporter who was badgering him. “First responders. The minute you go anywhere as a first responder — and this would apply, certainly, to the military — you are trying very hard, working very hard to work yourself out of a job.”
Kelly explained that the response teams who came initially are actually supposed to be limited during their time spent dealing with any crisis location. This way, they can be sent to the next disaster when it comes.
“There will be a period in which — we hope sooner rather than later — to where the U.S. military and FEMA, generally speaking, can withdraw because then the government and the people of Puerto Rico are recovering sufficiently to start the process of rebuilding. So this country, our country will stand with those American citizens in Puerto Rico until the job is done. But the tweet about FEMA and DOD — read: military — is exactly accurate. They’re not going to be there forever, and the whole point is to start to work yourself out of a job and then transition to the rebuilding process,” he continued.
The truth of the matter is that President Trump and his administration have been doing everything they can in order to help the people of Puerto Rico. The mainstream liberal media has chosen to constantly twist the truth in order to fit their sick narrative. It’s time for news outlets to stop being so biased and give the President the respect he deserves.
Melania’s EPIC Response to Bully Librarian Who Attacked Her Character, Has OFFICIALLY Gone Mega-ViralBy Manly Man — 10 months ago
Melania Trump has become a regular target for the left to ridicule. It seems no matter what she does, says or wears, liberals are just waiting for her to make a move so they can shoot her down and bash her in the media.
Who can forget the way liberal reporters jumped all over Mrs. Trump not long ago when she dared to wear high heels before boarding Air Force One for hurricane-ravaged Texas? The nerve of that woman!Liberals are still out to get Melania.
How else can you explain why a school librarian from Massachusetts would turn down books donated by FLOTUS? Because that’s exactly what happened.
The White House chose one elementary school from each state and donated 10 Dr. Suess books their way. In Melania’s note to the school, she wrote, “As I was thinking about your return to school, I wanted to send you a special gift. Dr. Seuss’s Oh the Places You’ll Go! is a book my son and I have read over and over again, and one that we want to share with all of you.”
Nice, right? Not to librarian Liz Phipps Soeiro, who not only refused to accept the books but wrote back a letter of her own wondering why the White House wasn’t sending books to “underfunded and underprivileged communities that continue to be marginalized and maligned by policies put in place by Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos?”
Ah, it’s Betsy DeVos’s fault now. Good one!
Soeiro would rather deny students at her own school Dr. Suess books than be caught dead accepting anything from Melania Trump.
That’s liberal logic for ya.
Now, Melania has responded with this classy statement…
FIRST LADY MELANIA TRUMP FIRED BACK FRIDAY AT A MASSACHUSETTS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL LIBRARIAN WHO REJECTED HER DONATION OF DR. SEUSS BOOKS, CLAIMING THEIR ILLUSTRATIONS ARE EXAMPLES OF “RACIST PROPAGANDA.”
STEPHANIE GRISHAM, DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS FOR THE FIRST LADY’S OFFICE, SAID IN A STATEMENT TO FOX NEWS THAT THE RESPONSE WAS “UNFORTUNATE,” AND MRS. TRUMP WANTED TO USE HER PLATFORM “TO HELP AS MANY CHILDREN AS SHE CAN.”
“SHE HAS DEMONSTRATED THIS IN BOTH ACTIONS AND WORDS SINCE HER HUSBAND TOOK OFFICE, AND SENDING BOOKS TO CHILDREN ACROSS THE COUNTRY IS BUT ONE EXAMPLE,” SHE SAID. “TO TURN THE GESTURE OF SENDING YOUNG STUDENTS SOME BOOKS INTO SOMETHING DIVISIVE IS UNFORTUNATE, BUT THE FIRST LADY REMAINS COMMITTED TO HER EFFORTS ON BEHALF OF CHILDREN EVERYWHERE.”
TO CELEBRATE “NATIONAL READ A BOOK DAY,” THE FIRST LADY HAD SENT OUT A COLLECTION OF 10 DR. SEUSS BOOKS TO ONE SCHOOL IN EACH STATE ACROSS THE NATION. THE TITLES INCLUDED: “THE CAT IN THE HAT”; “ONE FISH, TWO FISH, RED FISH, BLUE FISH”; “WACKY WEDNESDAY”; “GREEN EGGS AND HAM”; AND “OH, THE PLACES YOU’LL GO!”
SHE FOLLOWED IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF HER PREDECESSOR, MICHELLE OBAMA, WHO OFTEN READ DR. SEUSS BOOKS TO CHILDREN. FORMER FIRST LADIES HILLARY CLINTON AND BARBARA BUSH ALSO READ TO CHILDREN AT DR. SEUSS-THEMED EDUCATIONAL EVENTS.
“I WANTED TO SEND YOU A SPECIAL GIFT. DR. SEUSS’S OH, THE PLACES YOU’LL GO! IS A BOOK MY SON AND I HAVE READ OVER AND OVER AGAIN, AND ONE THAT WE WANT TO SHARE WITH ALL OF YOU,” THE FIRST LADY WROTE IN HER LETTER TO STUDENTS. “PLEASE ALSO REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE THE FUTURE OF AMERICA AND THAT YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING YOU SET YOUR MIND TO.”
Don’t you just love our First Lady. She is such a proud and strong individual. God bless her.
Now, look what came out about the professor. She was pictured wearing cat in the hat gear. What a putz.

Kirsters Baish| It goes without saying that black face make-up is 100 percent wrong. That’s why we don’t tolerate it in our society at all anymore. Anyone who tries to go against this social stigma is subject to being ridiculed and hated, justifiably so. Interestingly enough, Leftist comedian Jimmy Kimmel, who has built himself up to be the “nice guy,” isn’t as nice as Americans thought. After a video clip from “The Man Show” surfaced recently which showed Kimmel sexually assaulting attractive young women by asking them to feel what was in his pants, a new video has emerged that has Kimmel in more hot water. Not only is this guy on the line for sexual misconduct now, but he’s being accused of being racist.On Jimmy Kimmel’s late night show, joined by David Alan Grier, two the worked to stop the “immoral discrimination against white people.” You’re reading that right. We can’t make this crap up.
“It all started back in the 1700s when black people took all the seats in the slave ships for themselves, leaving room for only a few white people up top. Then we black people have continued our discriminatory ways: we forced white people into all white neighborhoods and brutally caucasian public schools. Our police are so focused on serving us, they barely even pay attention to white people, and whites are discriminated against in major sectors of our economy, from the NBA to hip-hop to even Tyler Perry movies. It’s so bad that white people had no choice but to create their own all-white government — and they can’t get a damn thing done,”Grier stated. During the show, Grier also spoke directly to authorities, asking them to give white people of America a chance.
Unfortunately for the leftist comedian, Kimmel wrecked himself. He crossed a dangerous line when he decided to put on black face for a skit. Yup, the liberal Hollywood celebrity thought it was a good idea to pretend he was black and mock African Americans on television. This video clip is truly disgraceful. There is no excuse for Kimmel’s despicable actions.

Kimmel’s career seems to be going right down the tubes at this point. I’d like to see him try to talk his way out of this one. Americans deserve to know the truth about this man who claims to be such a great guy. I’m sure Kimmel is going to come up with some crazy lies to cover up how wrong he truly was for even doing the skit. Kimmel has made his mistakes, and now he’s going to have to lay in the grave that he’s dug for himself, because I can’t imagine him making his way back from this.
