Tennessee’s Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn just made it clear to everyone she knows that Trump is RIGHT about how Americans are supposed to act when the U.S. National Anthem is played.
Monday, Rep. Blackburn filed a resolution, to remind Americans that Federal law addresses how we are to act during the playing of The Star-Spangled Banner.
Pursuant to Section 301(b) of title 36 of the U.S. code :
- Armed Services members in uniform should give the military salute at the first note of the song and maintain that position until the last note;
- Armed Forces members and veterans who are present but not in uniform may do the same; and,
- “All other persons present should face the flag and stand at attention with their right hand over the heart, and men not in uniform, if applicable, should remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart.” (emphasis added)
- When the flag is not displayed, all present should face toward the music and act in the same manner they would if the flag were displayed.
Unfortunately, this is one of those laws with no teeth. So no one will go to jail for disobeying it. But the fact that it’s set out in Federal law says everything any American needs to know, don’t you think? And it proves Trump is in the right!

Even though Donald Trump was not mentioned by name, it was utterly obvious whom his predecessors in the White House were referring to and the impact they believed his actions were having on the nation.
George W. Bush occupied the White House from 2001-2009 and stated that “Our politics seem more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrications.”
Obama held office from 2009 to just nine months ago and insisted that politics appeared “so angry and nasty.” “Instead of our politics reflecting our values, we have politics infecting our communities,” he declared.
However, everyone in politics knows that for the last six decades it is generally accepted that former presidents do not criticize the behavior of those who follow them. The fact that two former presidents, who were both individuals representing opposite parties and separated by 15 years in age, should do so with such intensity and on the same day, is peculiar and very bizarre.
According to subjectpolitics:
Fox Host Steve Hilton had a BRUTAL message for George W. Bush and Obama after they joined in attacking President Trump and his supporters over the weekend. In their coordinated attack on the Trump movement, these two former Presidents are trying to turn the public against President Trump. “It was a striking site the last 2 Presidents out on the same day with a not very well disguised attack on [President Trump],” Hilton said.
The shocking part was to hear George W. Bush essentially call Trump-supporters racist. Bush said, “We’ve seen nationalism distorted into nativism,” as he called for more open-borders policies that business leaders and liberals want. He also called for globalist trade policies, and took a shot at Trump’s policies. Fox Host Steve Hilton had a BRUTAL reponse that exposes Obama and George W. Bush for who they really are.
“Here’s my message to Bush and Obama. When you’re ready to apologize for the economic and social destruction that your elitist policies caused for working Americans, we might take seriously your self-righteous and sanctimonious musings about the state of our politics,” Hilton said. But he wasn’t done there. WATCH him expose Bush and Obama then click the button at bottom of the article to SHARE this on Facebook!
From Fox News:
IT WAS A STRIKING SITE THE LAST 2 PRESIDENTS OUT ON THE SAME DAY WITH A NOT VERY WELL DISGUISED ATTACK ON [PRESIDENT TRUMP]… HERE’S MY MESSAGE TO BUSH AND OBAMA. WHEN YOU’RE READY TO APOLOGIZE FOR THE ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL DESTRUCTION THAT YOUR ELITIST POLICIES CAUSED FOR WORKING AMERICANS, WE MIGHT TAKE SERIOUSLY YOUR SELF-RIGHTEOUS AND SANCTIMONIOUS MUSINGS ABOUT THE STATE OF OUR POLITICS.”

Now that Obama is out of office a surmounting number of factual documents reveal that he should have never been qualified for the position to begin with.
During President Obama’s presidential campaigns a lot of talk circulated in regards to wether or not he met all the necessary qualifications to run in the first place. Most heavily this conversation incorporated the status of his American citizenship seeing as his Father is from Kenya, but that isn’t the only skeleton Obama was attempting to disguise.
Barack Obama staked his political knowledge on the experience of being a constitutional scholar and professor for racial inequality. In reality Obama has never been a professor but merely a lecturer and even that position was acquired through false representation. The University of Chicago only employed Obama as a lecturer under the pretense that he was contracted to write a book about law and race. Although the contract was real, nothing ever came of it because Obama failed to deliver.
As far as having any claim to being a constitutional scholar, Obama lectured during one semester on the constitution and therefore considers himself an expert in that particular field. Throughout his presidency reports circulated revealing that Obama really only bothered to lecture on 3 topics while employed as a ‘professor.’
According to the New York Times, Obama the lecturer taught three subjects only: “race, rights and gender.”
Lie one: Obama was never a professor; he was a lecturer. He did not have the qualifications to be a professor. Obama never published a single law paper. He was hired by the University of Chicago when they learned he had been given a book contract on race and law directly after graduating from Harvard. There was no book – just the contract, which he later reneged on.
Lie two: Obama did not specialize in the Constitution. Obama cared about and taught only one subject: race. One course was about race in the Constitution. It is on this flimsy basis that he attempts to pawn himself off as a constitutional scholar.
Lie three: Obama calls himself a constitutional law prof to imply that he loves the Constitution. He is on record – literally, a radio interview done when he was a lecturer – slamming the Supreme Court’s interpretation of the Constitution because they never tried to invent a right to “redistribute wealth” – a failing he describes as a “tragedy of the civil rights movement.”
Interesting that Obama believes the wealth should be redistributed by the American government while also collecting $200,000 a year from the government for his presidential retirement allowances that he clearly doesn’t need considering his current net worth is about $40 million dollars. Hypocrite.

Kirsters Baish| Americans are appalled at the way NFL commissioner Roger Goodell handled the NFL National Anthem protests. He didn’t hold players accountable for their actions whatsoever. But, this really shouldn’t have been too much of a surprise after the way Goodell handled the Ray Rice domestic abuse case. Goodell never made a real recovery after that case, and his handling (or lack thereof) of the anthem protests has proven him to be completely unable to do his job as NFL commissioner. When Colin Kaepernick first decided to sit out during the National Anthem, Goodell should have enforced the NFL manual.
The Washington Post reported that the NFL’s game operations manual specifically states that “all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem.” It also explains that players must “stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking” or they will be disciplined with consequences “such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s).” The NFL doesn’t seem to mind condemning players for dancing in the end zone, but they won’t discipline their players for breaking the rules regarding our country’s National Anthem? Something is wrong here.
Goodell didn’t so much as give Kaepernick a slap on the wrist. All he did was cave in when the players decide to hide in their locker rooms and kneel down during the anthem. He allowed them to walk all over the rules. NFL fans received the message loud and clear that there was no respect for the National Anthem and everything it stands for. Fans had a lot to say about the protests. Roughly 60% of NFL fans that were polled explained that they will be watching less NFL on television.
Yahoo Finance reported:
A new Yahoo Finance poll suggests the NFL has an enduring problem on its hands. Nearly 62% of 9,056 respondents told us they plan to watch less pro football in response to the anthem controversy. Thirty-six percent said they plan to buy less NFL merchandise, and 32% have chosen not to attend a game they would otherwise have gone to. Those findings all have financial implications for the NFL and its 32 team owners.
This is not looking good for the NFL. The problems Goodell is facing as commissioner aren’t just with the fans. The owners aren’t happy with his actions either. He’s costing them a lot of money to simply allow players to break the rules.
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones isn’t happy with Goodell, and he has decided to make a move against the commissioner that will appease a lot of angry Americans.
The New York Times reported that the NFL, which is already not doing so well after the political protests. Players kneeling isn’t sitting well with fans, and there has been a war waged between Jerry Jones and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. Goodell has been granted a $40 million salary, but it’s questionable if he’s actually doing what he needs to in order to earn that salary. The feud between Jerry Jones and Roger Goodell has gotten so severe that Jones has threatened to sue the league as well as some other team owners due to negotiations extending Goodell’s contract. This information was given by three people with direct knowledge of the situation. Last week, Jones explained to the six owners on the NFL’s compensation committee that he hired David Boies. Boies is a very high-profile lawyer who is under fire in the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment case. He opted not to speak publicly about internal NFL matters.
None of this is anything to be taken lightly. The NFL has mutiny right in front of their faces. It’s hard for people to really think that Jerry Jones would have taken such measures if he didn’t have some kind of inkling that other owners would follow suit or at least show him some support.
Could this be the end for Goodell?
