Second NFL Player Announces He Will No Longer Stand During National Anthem – Update: Backs Down From Threat…

nfl

Libs have a second new hero to worship.

Via ESPN:

Philadelphia Eagles rookie linebacker Myke Tavarres has decided to join Colin Kaepernick in sitting out the national anthem.

Speaking to ESPN on Monday, Tavarres said he almost sat during the anthem ceremony preceding Saturday night’s game against the Colts in Indianapolis, and he plans to follow through when the Eagles host the New York Jets in their preseason finale Thursday night.

“Oh, I thought about it. Believe me, I definitely thought about it,” Tavarres said of sitting Saturday night. “And usually I’m front and center on the line with the rest of the guys, and that’s since pre-K all the way up. Saturday’s game, I stepped back, I was in the background, and it didn’t feel right to me at all, and so I will be taking a stand — or sitting down — for the fourth game.”

Kaepernick has created a national conversation for opting not to stand for “The Star Spangled Banner” this preseason because of his views on the country’s treatment of racial minorities.

Update: Sounds more like his agent backed down for him. The Eagles play on Thursday so we’ll see.

(Metro) – Eagles Monday, Eagles undrafted free agent Myke Tavarres made headlines when he told ESPN that he planned to join 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in protest of the way the United States treats minorities and refuse to stand during the national anthem before Thursday’s fourth preseason game.

But later Monday, according to ESPN, his agent interjected to stop the protest.

“He plans on standing for the National Anthem,” Tavarres’ agent, Corey Williams, said in a statement Monday. “Myke does not want to be a distraction to the Philadelphia Eagles organization. Myke’s goal is and will always be to make the Eagles 53-man roster and help the team win a Super Bowl.”

Whether or not Tavarres will adhere to the updated statement given by his agent when the players take the field against the Jets at Lincoln Financial Field Thursday night is still an unknown — but it sounds like the player is at least being told he should be prioritizing football and not politics at this time.

BREAKING: Singer Chris Brown Locked In House, Saying “F*ck Police, BlackLivesMatter” On Social Media, With Police Outside Because Of Claim Of Assault…UPDATE: Gun And Drugs Reportedly Found In Bag He Threw Out Window…

Warning for language:

He seems nice. You may recall Brown has a past history of beating up on his former girlfriend Rihanna, although what has occurred here is not clear. For those unsure who he is, you didn’t miss much.

Via TMZ:

9:40 AM PT — Police say they are still trying to make contact with Chris.
9:20 AM PT — Chris is finally awake and posting videos. He’s pissed about the police presence at his house and feels he’s being harassed. He even dropped a “F*** tha police!”
The cops are still outside.
8:45 AM PT – We’ve learned the SWAT team is on its way to Chris’ home and the LAPD is in the process of obtaining a search warrant. We’re told cops want to see if a gun matching the description from the woman is in the house. As of now, Chris has not left his residence.
7:55 AM PT — TMZ has learned Chris was in the house with several friends, including Ray J. They were talking and at one point Ray was getting a tattoo when some “uninvited guests” appeared inside the house and were asked to leave.
At that point, the story gets murky. The guests included a man who was invited, and two women who were not — one of the women who’d been asked to leave is the one who made the police report, claiming Brown pulled the gun on her. Someone inside the house insists Chris was asleep the whole time.
At some point Ray J left the house and when he got to the base of the driveway, police handcuffed him and seized his BMW. They checked his ID, uncuffed him and let him go, but kept his car as evidence. He Ubered home.

Update:

Idiots gotta idiot.

Police have retrieved at least one gun, other weapons and drugs from Chris Brown’s home, after Chris threw a duffel bag out the window of his home … TMZ has learned.

He also reportedly yelled, “Come and get me!” after he threw it. He’s likely to get his wish…

Update:

He’s allegedly about to come out, so I put this up for the probable perp walk. Sorry for the ‘reporters’ who sound like they are 15 year old Valley Girls.

Update:

Hilarious, his close neighbor, NBA player, Nick Young, tells Brown you’re ruining our neighborhood, you have to go, you’re making the neighborhood ‘too hot’, and there are only a limited number of black folk there to begin with.

Update:

The backstory. The woman who had the gun pulled on her is named Baylee Curran.

The woman who called the cops on Chris Brown says the singer pulled a gun on her because she was admiring a piece of jewelry … and afterwards his people demanded she sign a non-disclosure agreement.
Baylee Curran appeared on “TMZ Live” and said she had partied with Chris in the past and he was always nice, but this time he appeared to be out of it … on drugs or alcohol.
She says she came to his house with a friend, spent a little time in the hot tub, and then walked back inside where a member of Chris’ crew was displaying a piece of jewelry. Baylee says when she admired it the guy went nuts, and then Chris followed suit by demanding she “get the f*** out” and pointed a gun at her.
The craziest part … as she tried to leave she says Chris’ people wouldn’t let her take her cell phone until she signed a non-disclosure agreement. She refused to sign, and she and her friend left.
TMZ broke the story … Baylee, Miss California Regional 2016, called 911 and that started the standoff with Chris.

Update:

Ray J, another singer who was there but had left after talking with police, posted video saying he’s supporting Chris Brown and ‘the movement’, and ‘things have to change’ if someone’s allegation can result in all this.

Update:

Looks like he finally got some sense and did what he should have done originally, called his attorney and now is arranging his surrender. His attorney is Mark Geragos.

Atheist Group Bullies Hotel Into Removing Bibles From Guest Rooms…

bible day

Via Deseret News:

An atheist organization that has asked private hotels and publicly funded university-owned hotels to remove Bibles from their guest rooms has reportedly convinced the Thunderbird Executive Inn in Glendale, Arizona, to do just that.

According to a press release from The Freedom From Religion Foundation, an atheist activist group, rooms at the hotel “are now Bible free” after the organization requested their removal.

The sticking point for atheists is that the Thunderbird Executive Inn is located on the premises of the Thunderbird School of Global Management, which recently became a “unit” of Arizona State University, a public college.

With the hotel standing on public land and having an affiliation with the college, the Freedom From Religion Foundation sent a letter dated March 4, 2016, to Allen J. Morrison, CEO and director general of Thunderbird school, urging the removal of the Bibles.

“If a state-run university has a policy of providing a Christian religious text to guests, that policy facilitates illegal endorsement of Christianity over other religions and over nonreligion,” the letter read. “State-run colleges have a constitutional obligation to remain neutral toward religion.”

The letter stated that the atheist group was under the impression that Thunderbird Executive Inn had — along with the Thunderbird School of Global Management — become units of the public university in 2015.

BREAKING: ISIS Says Number 2 Leader Abu Muhammad al-Adnani Is Dead…

cover-221

Good f*cking riddance.

Via NBC News:

The No. 2 man in ISIS, who was at the top of the U.S. kill list, is dead, according to a media arm of the terrorist organization.

The circumstances of Abu Muhammad al-Adnani’s death in Aleppo, Syria, have not been confirmed. Officials in Washington — who had put out a $5 million reward for al-Adnani — had no immediate comment.

The 37-year-old, who was ISIS’ director of external operations and main spokesman, is best known for issuing an edict for lone wolves to kill Westerners in September 2014.

“If you can kill a disbelieving American or European — especially the spiteful and filthy French — or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be,” he said.

“Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him.”

As NBC News reported in December, al-Adnani was the No. 1 name on the U.S. list of ISIS leaders it wanted to kill.

“Adnani has been the main voice behind issuing ISIS threats to the West,” Laith al-Khouri of Flashpoint Intelligence, an NBC counterterrorism analyst, said at the time. “He is so admired and glorified by jihadists worldwide that he stands as a primary point of recruitment.”

Sick: Out Of The 10,126 Syrian Refugees Let Into The U.S. By The Obama Regime, Only 52 Are Christians…

Refugees US

Even worse, 9,945 of them follow the same religion as ISIS and al-Qaeda, Sunni Islam.

Via CNS News:

(Update: As of midafternoon eastern time on Monday 224 new Syrian refugee arrivals have been reported. That lifts the total this fiscal year to 10,126, of whom 52 or 0.51 percent are Christians; and 9,945 or 98.2 percent, are Sunni Muslims.)

The Obama administration is expected on Monday – a month ahead of schedule – to achieve its goal of admitting 10,000 Syrian refugees this fiscal year.

As of late Sunday, 9,902 had been resettled in the United States, but more than 200 more are expected to arrive from Jordan and surrounding areas over the next day. U.S. Ambassador to Jordan Alice Wells told reporters the 10,000 target announced by President Obama last September will be reached on Monday.

Barring an unlikely last-minute shift, the number of Christians among the 10,000 will be less than half of one percent.

Via Mashable:

Today in everyday sexism: Old Navy’s drawing criticism for the sexist subtext in a pair of Ghostbusters t-shirts geared toward toddler boys and girls.

Per Jezebel, though Ghostbusters t-shirts are offered in both the Toddler Boys’ and Toddler Girls’ section of its online store, the shirts themselves are far from similar.

For the boys, Old Navy offers a plain gray t-shirt featuring the franchise logo. For the girls, it offers a pink shirt featuring not only the franchise logo, but the phrase, “Ghostbuster In Training.”

The subtle messaging behind these shirts: Even at toddler age, girls are always inferior.

Via Daily Caller

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s birth mother had some harsh words for her son on Twitter.

“There’s ways to make change w/o disrespecting & bringing shame to the very country & family who afforded you so many blessings,” Heidi Russo tweeted at Kaepernick after he decided to sit out the national anthem this past weekend.

Kaepernick chose to sit on the bench during a preseason game against the Green Bay Packers, and was instantly lambasted by people across America.

Russo gave up Kaepernick for adoption when he was born, according to Terez Owens.

Gold Star Mom On Kaepernick: I See A Flag That Draped My Son’s Casket – Update: Hollywood Moonbat Rips Mom, “Bullshit… Your Son Was Killed By Haliburton”…

Gold Star Mother

Will the media come to her defense the same as they did for Khizr Khan?

Via KRTV:

When San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sat in protest during the national anthem, he caused quite a stir within the military community.

Teri Johnson, a Gold Star mother who lost her son, Sgt. Joseph Johnson, in an IED attack in Afghanistan in 2010, told CNN’s Jake Tapper, “When I read that he said he couldn’t stand for a flag that he didn’t have pride in … right away, my heart kind of stopped and I lost my breath because the flag that I see is the flag that draped my son’s casket in honor. And I see the flag that was handed to my husband and I with deep respect from a grateful nation. When I look at the flag, I see the best of us.”

Kaepernick said he’s “not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”

In a strongly-worded Facebook post, Johnson said, “I am sitting in my living room looking outside at my American Flag — flying at half staff. You see, my son’s body lay in a street after an IED blew up the vehicle he was fighting in. His blood stains the sands of Afghanistan. He died protecting the ideals of the flag you refuse to respect.”

Tapper asked Johnson: “There are also grieving moms because their sons were innocently and wrongly killed by law enforcement … if one of them were here and said ‘Hey, Kaepernick wasn’t standing up against your son, he was standing up for my son,’ what would you say to that?”

House Dems Seeks To Make It Illegal For Employers To Ask Job Applicants About Their Salary History…

nadler

Via Washington Examiner:

A trio of House Democrats plans to introduce a bill that would ban employers from asking job applicants for their salary history, a move they say would help close the so-called gender pay gap.

The legislation is sponsored by Reps. Jerrold Nadler of New York, Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut and Eleanor Holmes Norton, who is D.C’s non-voting delegate.

The bill would mirror a new law in Massachusetts that prohibits employers from requesting salary history, which critics say keeps women and minorities stuck at lower wage levels.

“Many carry lower salaries for their entire careers simply because of wages at previous jobs that were set unfairly,” Norton said Tuesday. “Our bill will require employers to offer salaries to prospective employees based on merit, not gender, race or ethnicity.”

MSNBC Host Joy Reid Claims “Planned Parenthood Is Not a Eugenicist Organization!”…

Joy Ann Reid

Actually it is.

Via LifeNews:

MSNBC’s Joy Reid was back at it again, Saturday, shouting down a conservative guest when they talked about the facts she wants to remain hidden. This time she shouted down Alfonso Aguilar, the President of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles, for daring to mention Planned Parenthood and Founder Margaret Sanger’s entrenched past in the eugenics movement.

“Planned Parenthood is not a eugenicist organization,” Reid exclaimed loudly on AM Joy, “I think that is incredibly offensive.”

Reid had brought Aguilar onto her show to talk about Steve Bannon’s influence on the Donald Trump campaign, and Bannon’s deep connections with the alt-right movement. But Aguilar turned the tables on Reid when he shifted the conversation to a controversial figure Hillary Clinton openly associates herself with:

“I think if we’re going to play that same game, then we have to challenge Hillary Clinton, for example, when she says that she is an admirer of Margaret Sanger, for example, the founder of Planned Parenthood, an avowed eugenicist, who believed that people of color and unborn were undesirables. I mean, is she going to distance herself.”

Reid didn’t appreciate that shot at Clinton, saying, “Alfonso, eh, with all due respect, Margaret Sanger is dead and not running the Hillary Clinton campaign,” before moving on to the other members of the panel.

Shocker: Spike Lee Says “I Support” Colin Kaepernick Not Standing During National Anthem…

(click image for video)

Screen Shot 2016-08-30 at 10.02.36 AM

He’s so patriotic.

COOPER: So what do you make of Colin Kaepernick not standing up?

LEE: I support him. I find it so interesting how people want to pick and choose what rights people have. Now, any time you talk about antigun violence, people run around screaming about they don’t want their Second Amendment rights to be infringed upon — the same way John Carlos and tommy smith raised their black glove fists at the ’68 Olympics in Mexico, the same way Muhammad Ali refused to fight for a war that was just as crazy.

COOPER: Refused to fight the Vietnam War.

LEE: Yes. The Vietnam War. These are rights Americans have.

COOPER: You see what he is doing, what Colin Kaepernick is doing as in that tradition?

LEE: Yes, it’s in that tradition of black athletes standing up, saying I’m not using their platform saying I’m not happy with the way black people, people of color are being treated.

COOPER: It’s so interesting because often at the time when an athlete does it, they are vilified.

LEE: The biggest revision story ever – Muhammad Ali at one time was the most hated person, people need to Google, do research. Muhammad Ali was the most hated person in America.

COOPER: He couldn’t box in America.

LEE: Muhammad Ali, people loved him lighting up the torch, where his arm was shaking in the Olympics in Atlanta. But not the defiant. He said no Viet Cong ever called and I’m not going to say — the “n” word.

COOPER: The New York Times wouldn’t call him his name. They called him Cassius Clay.

LEE: Not even call the guy his name, so I think it’s in the same tradition. I find it very interesting that three members of big blue, the New York football Giants, on presently playing and two retired are the ones that criticized him. Three — that’s my team. Three of those brothers, they should understand what tradition, the history of why Colin did this. Now, I bet you went to all three of them, they would say they loved Muhammad Ali. How could you love Muhammad Ali and not love him for the stance he took not to be inducted into the Vietnam War. If you say yeah, yeah, yeah, it’s the same thing.

COOPER: Muhammad Ali said if I kept my mouth shut just because i can make millions, then this ain’t doing nothing so I just love the freedom and the flesh and blood of my people more so than i do the money. And Jackie Robinson said i cannot stand and sing the anthem, I cannot salute the flag, i know that I’m a black man in a white world. That was Jackie Robinson in 1972 in his autobiography.

LEE: This is the tradition. What Colin is doing now is not popping out of nowhere. There’s tradition, tradition of African-American athletes standing up and using their platform to say something is wrong.

COOPER: Do you think he’s going to pay a price for it?

LEE: They all do. Muhammad Ali, three years of his prime. John Carlos, Tommy Smith, of course. But these brothers do this knowing that there will be ramifications and they don’t care because this is their belief.

Another thing I have to say. They always bring up oh, “You’re making a lot of money,” so the reason, because you make money, that means that you can’t have a moral foundation and speak — like here’s the thing. Black athletes, we pay you money, play ball, shut up, don’t say nothing, we’re giving you money, million dollars, just to go out there, run up and down the gridiron, run up and down the court and just be quiet and play.

A senior official in Iran states that Takfiri terrorism had to be countered from its roots.

“The factors and grounds for the creation and spread of terrorist groups such as ISIS-spawning ideologies and [ISIS’] financial supporters must be countered through the adoption of dynamic approaches at regional and international levels,” Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani said in a meeting with Afghanistan’s Foreign Minister Salahuddin Rabbani in Tehran on Monday.

He added: “The important and high priority issues of Islamic states such as the threat posed by the Zionist regime and the military and colonial presence of the US [in the region] under the pretext of fighting terrorism are among matters that should not be neglected and overshadowed by the growth of Takfiri groups.”

Global Warming Hits Chicago: August Most Violent Month In 20 Years…

Chicago August

Hot lead is contributing to global warming.

Via Chicago Tribune:

In the weeks since he was shot in the back, 10-year-old Tavon Tanner has undergone several operations to repair the damage from the bullet that tore through his small body and remains lodged between his shoulder and his chest.

The fifth-grader is still in the hospital and still in pain, according to his mother Mellanie Washington. He doesn’t talk as much and cries more often. Sometimes he’ll ask if police have arrested the person who shot him.

“I tell him they will soon,” Washington said. “They will.” No one was in custody as of Monday.

Tavon was among more than 400 people shot in Chicago this month. There have been 84 homicides, marking August as the most violent month in the city in 20 years, according to data collected by the Tribune. And there are two more days to go.

The city hasn’t seen a month with 80 or more homicides since October of 1996, which logged 85. August of that year also saw 85 homicides and June of that year saw 90.

Chicago has a lower homicide rate than many other U.S. cities that are smaller in population. But this year, the city has recorded more homicides and shooting victims than New York City and Los Angeles combined, even though the two cities are larger than Chicago’s population of roughly 2.6 million.

Chicago has recorded 487 homicides and more than 2,800 people shot so far this year, compared to 491 homicides and 2,988 people shot all of last year, according to CPD and Tribune data.
