This whole weekend if you turned on the Mainstream media there is almost a guarantee they were sitting their trying to call the President a “racist” just because he stood up to NFL Anthem Kneelers.
Anyone who knows anything about this President knows he is NOT gonna put up with being labeled a “racist” when he is nothing of the sort. That’s why moments before he climbed onboard Marine One today, he stopped and gave an impromptu press briefing to clear it up once and for all.
He explained his position of supporting troops and respecting football players. Then, at the last second, one of the reporters asked if it was a “racial” issue. President Trump stopped, turned to the camera and said,
“I never said anything about race. This has nothing to do with race or anything else. This has to do with respect for our country and respect for our flag.”
He is right. There is nothing about this even remotely racial based. After all, white players have kneeled during the anthem too at this point and Trump did NOT exclude them from his statement.
No, this is about giving up a few seconds before a sporting event where we honor the men and women who died for our country. Trump knows this and so do most Americans.
The President has now done his part to clear up this whole mess. Now it’s up to us to help his spread this everywhere and let him explain in his own words how NOT racist this really is.

ELDER PATRIOT – Who is better qualified to talk about how race has held him back than an eighty-year old black man from the Deep South, Memphis, Tennessee? On his way up there were no affirmative action programs to help him overcome the obstacle of “being born Black in America.”
Morgan Freeman was 80 when he was interviewed on CNN Tonight, two years ago. Host Don Lemon Morgan asked him, “Do you think poverty is part of genetics, to answer your question?”
Freeman answered forthrightly, “No, you can’t say that. I don’t think wealth, personally, I don’t think wealth and genetics have anything to do with each other, actually.”
Freeman elaborated and his answer must’ve had political race hustlers burying their heads, “If you’re born in the U.S., it really doesn’t matter the condition of your birth. What matters is what you inherit from your nurturing, from your environment, whether or not you are — I mean, this is from the standpoint of having been born with little. Here, you can always get out of that. Poverty is just…”
The Academy Award winner wasn’t done.
When Lemon asked him, “Do you think race plays a part in wealth distribution?”
Freeman didn’t hesitate, “Today? No.”
Lemon persisted, “You don’t?”
And, Freeman remained resolute, “No. No, I don’t. You and I, we’re proof. Why would race have anything to do with it? Put your mind to what you want to do and go from there.”
“I was born in Memphis, Tennessee [in 1937],” said Freeman. “I had a long haul from where I came from, to here. But here we are. So proof is in — proof of the pudding is in the eating. Here we sit at the dining table.”
Lemon was desperate to protect “The Legacy Of Liberalism” that has destroyed the Black family and the schools their children attend that Freeman had earlier alluded to (“What matters is what you inherit from your nurturing, from your environment”.)
Lemon: “But it’s hard to — when you say that to people because they say, ‘Here you go with the pull yourself up by the bootstraps thing. You’re just being respectable. Not everybody can do that.”
Freeman’s response was abrupt: “Bullsh**! Everybody can! “Not that it doesn’t – [take] courage. Courage is the key to life itself. A lot of people were born in situations, ‘I’ll never get out of this.’ So they won’t. I say to people who say, ‘Well, I would like to have done so and so and so and so.’
“Well, you could have done it. ‘I couldn’t get out of here.’”
“Man, the bus runs every day.”
Freeman’s message: Certain “truths are self-evident. That all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,” and abilities and it is up to them what they make of themselves. He warns young people not to be the victim of their own actions. That, after all, is the essence of freedom.
COCKY MUSLIM BASKETBALL PLAYER SHOOTS HOOPS DURING NATIONAL ANTHEM – GETS SMACKED DOWN BY LONE PATRIOTBy Manly Man — 4 months ago
Lets not count the number of times Muslims have committed acts of disrespect, acts of aggression, and even acts of terrorism in America in the last decade alone.
Liberals continue to assure America that Muslims are practicing a “religion of peace,” and they are not here for violence.
However, all we see is the opposite, and one college basketball player proves once again the truth. During a recent college basketball game in Kansas, a Muslim player decided to disrespect our flag in the most obscene way ever.
The Quran is unlike any other holy book in that it advocates for a tribal morality—rather than urging people to follow the “golden rule,” it urges followers to lie, cheat, steal, and even commit acts of violence against the “infidels,” or “non-Muslims.”
It should come as no surprise then that a Muslim basketball player at Garden City Community College in Garden City, Kansas, just decided to massively disrespect our anthem in the most disgusting of ways. Thankfully however, there was a lone patriot in the crowd who was completely fed up—and he decided to take action and make sure that this didn’t happen again.
“Jim Howard, of Garden City, Kansas, is a red-blooded, American patriot and a faithful supporter of the athletic program at the local community,” Todd Starnes of Fox News reports. So when he saw Rasool Samir, a 19-year-old Muslim player shooting hoops during the national anthem, he immediately grew red with fury.
Howard darted down the bleachers and immediately confronted the disrespectful player. “I walked onto the floor and I told the guy he should respect the flag, and if he’s not going to respect the flag, he should get off the court and get out of the gym,” Mr. Howard told the Todd Starnes Show.
“You should respect the flag. If you don’t respect the flag, just stay seated. Don’t make a big scene,” he said. “At least respect the people that paid for your scholarship to get you on this campus – like myself and everyone else in that gym.” To make matters worse, the Muslim player was also on a scholarship.
A police was then called into break things up, and thankfully, the crowd had enough common sense to realize what was going on—they immediately erupted into applause after seeing a courageous patriot putting a young, arrogant thug in his place. Many of them even shook his hand afterwards.
The Garden City Telegram reported that a police officer broke up the confrontation – telling Mr. Howard to return to his seat and escorting the player off the court.
When that happened, a number of people in the stands gave Mr. Howard a standing ovation and some fans even came over to shake the man’s hand.
It seems, they too – had had enough.
“Everyone around town was patting me on my back and saying thank you,” he said.
The following day Samir was dismissed from the team.
However, there are two versions as to what happened. The local newspaper says it was Samir’s decision to leave. But the American Civil Liberties Union claims the young man was kicked off the team.
The Kansas chapter of the ACLU fired off a letter to the community college demanding answers and claiming that Samir’s constitutional rights were violated.
“He refrained from participating in the national anthem because he is a Muslim and his faith prohibits acts of reverence to anything but God,” the ACLU wrote in a letter to the school.
Well, if that’s the case, why didn’t Samir stay inside the locker room with the rest of the team during the national anthem?
“Samir was engaged in protected First Amendment activity when he declined to observe the national anthem,” the ACLU wrote. “Moreover, Samir’s objection was motivated by his religious beliefs and thus, was protected on free speech exercise grounds.”
If, in fact, Samir’s Muslim faith prohibits him from honoring America and our flag, perhaps he might feel more comfortable playing basketball somewhere else? I hear the Iran and Saudi Arabia are quite lovely this time of year.
As for Mr. Howard, I’m not surprised to hear that many folks around town are giving him a pat on the back and shaking his hand. He did what every patriotic sports fan in the country has wanted to do.
This was more than just “exercising his first amendment rights.” If it were simply about him respecting his religion, he would have simply stayed inside the locker room and prayed. Instead, he blatantly went out of his way to cause a ruckus during our national anthem—this was no mistake, mark my words.
He obviously did this intentionally, in order to broadcast just how little respect he has for this country. Of course the far left ACLU is defending him, but if there’s any justice in this country, he will stay off the team…permanently.
What do you think? Should this 19-year-old Muslim player on a scholarship be kicked off the team, or maybe even have his visa revoked? Let us know your thoughts.

President Trump struck a major blow against the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, decertifying Iran’s compliance with the deal and warning that he could withdraw from it entirely if Iran continues to act belligerently.
As predicted, many on the left criticized the president’s address and actions, but one veteran got on Fox News Friday to defend him. Retired Staff Sargeant Robert Bartlett, who currently serves as an adviser with United Against Nuclear Iran, was badly injured by an Iranian bomb while serving in Iraq. When he was asked about President Trump’s decision, he said something awesome:
“That’s great to see that the American president is for the military.”
Then he slams Obama for his decision to sign the agreement in the first place:
“You know, President Barack Obama knew that at least 500 military members had been killed under the influence or hands of Iranians coming into Iraq.”
He continued to praise President Trump:
“And here this president is rolling back some of those bad policies that were basically going to get more Americans killed in the future. So, for me, it’s a great day.”
Check out his entire interview here:
It’s a great day for Sergeant Bartlett, and it’s a great day for the American people.
