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!

TGR: Special Council Mueller is on a roll. He’s doing what he can to discredit the Trump administration, and claim the Russians were directly involved with the Trump campaign. There is zero proof this ever happened.
News broke this week that Mueller might have illegally been pointed to his position. If this is true, then there could be something BIG brewing in the Trump admin.
Former Trump Foreign Policy Advisor George Papadopoulos Pled Guilty making him the first to be beheaded by Mueller
A former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser has pleaded guilty to making a false statement to the FBI after he lied about his interactions with foreign officials close to the Russian government.
In court records unsealed on Monday, the FBI said George Papadopoulos “falsely described his interactions with a certain foreign contact who discussed ‘dirt’ related to emails” concerning Hillary Clinton.
In addition, former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former Trump campaign official Rick Gates surrendered Monday to Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller.
Paul Manafort is next. This isn’t good news for the Trump Administration, but we can only hope, and pray things work out in the end, and we re-elect President Trump in 2020.
Law Professor Douglas Kmiec of Pepperdine University School of Law claims Mueller might have been appointed ILLEGALLY! This would be HUGE for the Trump administration. Kmiec,
worked under both Ronald Reagan, and George Bush. His argument is an interesting one. Kmiec has a few valid points that could prove Mueller isn’t even fit for the job he represents.
1) Mueller has no oversight
Kmiec contends that Mueller is not being properly supervised because of the “flimsy” way in which he was appointed. After all, Comey said during Congressional testimony that he had leaked a memo about Trump trying to squash the investigation in order to get a special counsel appointment. On top of that, he says, it doesn’t appear Mueller has any direct supervision. Sessions recused himself, and under the same theory, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has effectively recused himself because of his involvement in the process by writing a memo to Trump recommending James Comey be fired. So who exactly is Mueller accountable to? If he doesn’t have a boss, then the Constitution requires that he be confirmed by the Senate like all other executive appointees.
2) President’s presumption of guilt
There is also an issue of a presumption of guilt. Most legal experts agree that a sitting president cannot be indicted. The manner by which the special prosecutor was appointed skirts awfully close to an indictment, in the eyes of the law, Kmiec contends.
The special counsel has not formally indicted Trump. But given Comey’s hair-trigger assumption that Trump was up to no good, and the way the special counsel process defines the president as a wrongdoer before any wrong is established, the investigation itself is arguably equivalent to an unconstitutional indictment.
3) There appears to be little “specific and credible” information to open an investigation in the first place
This one requires a little backstory. In 1988, the U.S. Supreme Court took up a case in which Assistant Attorney General Ted Olson challenged the constitutionality of Independent Counsel Act. Ultimately, the court found it did not conflict with the separation of powers. However, the law expired in 1999, and the new regulations have never faced rigorous legal scrutiny, and if they did, they probably wouldn’t meet constitutional muster.
“Under the expired law, independent counsels were appointed by a special three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals, but only after the attorney general conducted a preliminary investigation based on ‘specific and credible’ information about alleged wrongdoing by the president,” Kmiec wrote. Kmiec contends that none of these careful steps exist in the current regulations, and “there are no signs that in the wake of Sessions’ recusal, a constitutionally sufficient process triggered the Mueller appointment.”
The fact is this, Robert Muller is out for blood. He has the establishment behind him 110%, and they’re out to bring down President Trump.
Trump is nothing more than a HUGE brick wall in the way of their globalist agenda. Recent comments from former President George W. Bush proved the name of the game is to bring down Trump.

Disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner has been sentenced to 21 months in prison for convincing an under aged girl to undress and touch herself via Skype back in 2016!
We on the right knew long ago that Anthony Weiner is a pedophile, and it was only a matter of time before karma would get him. I wonder what Human Abedin is thinking right now? Although her and Hillary Clinton are still best friends, it just goes to show that liberal women seem to cling to a child rapist and sex offenders. We should hold them accountable as well. Hence one of a million reasons why Hillary Clinton Lost the 2016 election.
We’ve all heard what they do to a pedophile in prison. One can only hope this happens to Mr.Weiner….Let’s be frank here, He would LOVE it done to him. In all seriousness, Pedophilia is a major problem in the world. People like Mr. Weiner should be hung from the gallows and made an example of.
From The Post:
Weiner, 53, had faced as much as 10 years in the slammer after pleading guilty in May to one count of transferring obscene material to a minor. The feds said Weiner, a former Congressman from Brooklyn, began a two-month sexting session with the North Carolina teen shortly after she messaged him on Twitter in January 2016.
He pleaded for probation on the grounds that his online dalliance with the 15-year-old was due to his sick obsession with sexting strangers rather than an obsession with underage girls. The government had asked for two years in prison.
It’s just the latest chapter in Democratic politician’s very public downfall, which started in 2011 when he was forced to resign from Congress following his first sexting scandal.
His 2013 run for NYC mayor also went up in flames when it emerged that he was still sexting under the alias “Carlos Danger.”
The feds said the latest and most insidious chapter of Weiner’s sexting problem began on the evening of Jan. 23, 2016, when a high-school student messaged him on Twitter, prompting a flurry of “provocative” responses from the former public servant, who knew the teen was in high school, court papers show.
“As January turned to February, their intermittent exchanges grew more lascivious,” Manhattan federal prosecutors told the judge in court filings.
By the end of February, Weiner — who by this time knew the girl was only 15 — was video-chatting with her via Skype and using “graphics and obscene language” to ask her to “display her naked body and touch herself, the feds said.
He also sent her “obscene material” on self-destructing messaging apps like Kik and Confide, including adult porn and a message “describing what he would do to her, if she were 18,” according to court filings.
In September 2016, the girl sold her story to British publication Daily Mail, and in May he cried as he pleaded guilty to one count of sending obscene material to a minor.
His wife — Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin — finally filed for divorce on the same day he pleaded guilty.
After President Trump Signs an MLK Proclamation Into Law, CNN Reporter Stands Up & Does The UnthinkableBy Manly Man — 2 months ago
President Trump continues to amaze America every single day with his astuteness and class.
Moments ago, Donald Trump performed something exceptional for MLK day. A notable thing that former President Barack Obama would never consider doing in his eight years in the White House. Joined by the Vice President, Mike Pence, Martin Luther King Jr’s nephew, and Dr. Ben Carson, the POTUS signed a new proclamation.
President Trump’s proclamation was created to officially recognize January 15th, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, as an honorable day of service. In other words, the new law brings the respect and dignity of MLK’s service to others. Martin Luther King Jr. Day is officially a day in which Americans get out and do something to benefit themselves or others, no matter how big or small the action may be.
Reported by subjectpolitics:
No longer should Martin Luther King Jr. Day be about a day off work or a day to get things done around the house, rather it should be a day of service to help someone else.
What an awesome moment, what an awesome occasion. What could possible ruin something like this?
Oh I know, A CNN REPORTER! Immediately after the ceremony, April Ryan, known for her outrageous and outlandish tantrums, stood up and screamed:
“MR. PRESIDENT ARE YOU A RACIST?”
She was referring to reports that claimed president Trump referred to Haiti and some African nations as “shitholes.” Trump has since denied those claims.
Here we have president Trump honoring MLK by transforming this day into a day of service and the first question he gets is “are you racist?!”
This is why CNN is a complete and total joke and why their ratings cannot beat cartoon reruns aired at midnight.
