All out war breaks out between NFL and US President Trump

NFL fires back at Trump, players refuse to honor US national anthem.

Identity politics has now seeped into US professional sports, and all out war has broken out between the NBA and NFL, with a politically incorrect US President Trump.

This Sunday NFL players decided to take a knee after Trump’s “get that son of a bitch off the field” comment, made during an Alabama weekend rally.

From around the NFL:

Tom Brady, who is a friend of Trump, joined his Patriot teammates in locking arms during the anthem before the game against the Texans in Foxborough.

Brady did put his hand over his heart.

Aaron Rodgers posted messages of solidarity with protesters on his Instagram page.

#unity #brotherhood #family #dedication #love #

A post shared by Aaron Rodgers (@aaronrodgers12) on

The Pittsburgh Steelers announced that they will remain in the locker room during the anthem before kick off against the Chicago Bears in Chicago.

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin made the announcement during an interview with CBS.

“For us as a football team it’s about us remaining solid. We’re not going to be divided by anything said by anyone. I told the players if you feel the need to do anything I will be supportive of that, as Americans you have that right, but whatever we do, we’re going to do 100% we’re going to do together…we’re not going to play politics with football players or football coaches. We’re not participating in the anthem today. We’re not going to let divisive times or divisive individuals affect our agenda. We’re not participating in the anthem..to remove ourselves from this circumstance…because people shouldn’t have to choose.”

Steelers LT Alejandro Villanueva, an army veteran, left the locker room during the anthem and stood by the tunnel with his hand over his heart.

In Philadelphia, Eagles and Giants players and coaches locked arms, as a massive American flag was raised over the field and military jets performed a flyover.

A few players raised fists. Several players on the Bills and the Broncos took a knee during the anthem.

Zerohedge reports that during an appearance on ESPN’s “NFL Sunday Countdown”, a football show that this week was coopted by politics, former Buffalo Bills and New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan admitted that he was “pissed off” about President Donald Trump referring to pro athletes who don’t stand for the pledge as “sons of bitches” and urging fans to boycott the league, or at least walk out of stadiums when they see players protesting.

“I’m pissed off, I’ll be honest with you,” Ryan said on ESPN’s “Sunday NFL Countdown.” “I supported Donald Trump. When he asked me to introduce him at a rally in Buffalo, I did that. But I’m reading these comments and it’s appalling to me and I’m sure it’s appalling to any citizen in our country.”

“Calling our players SOBs and all that kind of stuff? That’s not the men that I know,” Ryan, who’s now an analyst, continued. “The men I know in the locker room, I’m proud of, I’m proud to be associated with those people.”

Patriots owner Robert Kraft, who supported Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign, said he was “deeply disappointed” with US President Trump.

From the White House:

Trump doubled down on his weekend comments, calling on players, coaches, and owners to respect the US national anthem.

The US President continued to slam the NFL, and the NFL Commissioner, for allowing players to disrespect American flag and country, in a series of three tweets…

Are we supposed to sympathize with Trump for catching flack after telling club owners to discipline players who don’t make the requisite display of “patriotism” (i.e. pro-imperialist jingoism) at large entertainment events? Why are sports events turned into patriotic pep rallies in the first place? And are we still supposed to be concerned about Trump’s domestic woes? Hasn’t that time passed?

Liberals really do not need a boycott of the NFL to go with their disastrous hollywood and MSM revenue drops. Oh wait, they put politics in sport lol. Dont they ever learn?

The world should boycott the USA, left and right, they are all crazy, delusional and perverted SOBs. There is little difference between those that believe in American Exceptionalism and the left.

A true American would be putting efforts in to destroying the entire system and destroying myths like the “US constitution is great” myth.

Frankly my dear, I dont’ give a damn. Trump and his pampered pooch gamesman can hurl sand from the toddler pit as much as they want. It’s nothing compared to what he’s just done, if reported correctly “The first change, reported last night, is that Trump is preparing to “dismantle key Obama-era limits on drone strikes and commando raids outside conventional battlefields.” The language is a tad overblown, but the essence of the reported change is that Trump intends to delegate strike decisions to lower levels of the command chain and expand the list of potential targets from “high-level” militants… Read more »

But remember, Trump is doing nothing. His military govt is carrying out orders from the real powers. Trump’s outbursts are mere distractions for the gulled rabble, while the real crimes are put into motion. When Trump has served his purpose, he’ll be discarded like all the others.

I suspect you are absolutely right. Which makes paying any attention to anything he does a complete waste of time. It’s the new orders given that matter, because if they carry them out it could lead to firing on Russian military “accidentally” and God knows what other mayhem.

The Star Spangled Banner is militaristic, jingoistic ditty set to an un-singable drinking song, commemorating a minor stalemate in America’s first “war of choice.” The excuse for war was impressment, which had already been tolerated for several years. The likely real motivation for the US declaration of war was the hope that the US could take Canada while Britain was preoccupied with Napoleon. The US failed in several attempts to invade Canada. Racist snowflakes love to complain that their speech is unfairly circumscribed by “political correctness,” while at the same time they invoke their own form of “political correctness” by… Read more »

Hmmm… This is turning out to be QUITE the distraction, eh?
Is anyone else wondering, just exactly what they’re trying to distract us all from knowing?
For instance, this seems to be taking away the focus on HRC and her illegal comings & goings, just to name one thing…
This is all just a bit too contrived for me…
Much ado, about nothing, actually… 😉

The fact that the NFL team owners came together so quickly smells like this is just another piece of the Joo plot to denigrate Trump for whom the Joos have no love, especially since he keeps pushing Nuttyahoo for a peace deal with the Palestinians, (but assassinating him ala JFK would just be too obvious) and to further fan the flames of racial divide.

Trump Has Gifted “No More Wars” Policy Position To Bernie Sanders (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 148.

Alex Christoforou

Published

on

RT CrossTalk host Peter Lavelle and The Duran’s Alex Christoforou discuss how US President Donald Tump appears to have ceded his popular 2016 ‘no more wars’ campaign message and policy position to Bernie Sanders and any other US 2020 candidate willing to grad onto a non-interventionist approach to the upcoming Democrat primaries.

“Is Bernie Stealing Trump’s ‘No More Wars’ Issue?” by Patrick J. Buchanan…


The center of gravity of U.S. politics is shifting toward the Trump position of 2016.

“The president has said that he does not want to see this country involved in endless wars… I agree with that,” Bernie Sanders told the Fox News audience at Monday’s town hall meeting in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

Then turning and staring straight into the camera, Bernie added:

“Mr. President, tonight you have the opportunity to do something extraordinary: Sign that resolution. Saudi Arabia should not be determining the military or foreign policy of this country.”

Sanders was talking about a War Powers Act resolution that would have ended U.S. involvement in the five-year civil war in Yemen that has created one of the great humanitarian crises of our time, with thousands of dead children amidst an epidemic of cholera and a famine.

Supported by a united Democratic Party on the Hill, and an anti-interventionist faction of the GOP led by Sens. Rand Paul and Mike Lee of Utah, the War Powers resolution had passed both houses of Congress.

But 24 hours after Sanders urged him to sign it, Trump, heeding the hawks in his Cabinet and National Security Council, vetoed S.J.Res.7, calling it a “dangerous attempt to weaken my constitutional authorities.”

With sufficient Republican votes in both houses to sustain Trump’s veto, that should be the end of the matter.

It is not: Trump may have just ceded the peace issue in 2020 to the Democrats. If Sanders emerges as the nominee, we will have an election with a Democrat running on the “no-more-wars” theme Trump touted in 2016. And Trump will be left defending the bombing of Yemeni rebels and civilians by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia.

Does Trump really want to go into 2020 as a war party president?

Does he want to go into 2020 with Democrats denouncing “Trump’s endless wars” in the Middle East? Because that is where he is headed.

In 2008, John McCain, leading hawk in the Senate, was routed by a left-wing first-term senator from Illinois, Barack Obama, who had won his nomination by defeating the more hawkish Hillary Clinton, who had voted to authorize the war in Iraq.

In 2012, the Republican nominee Mitt Romney, who was far more hawkish than Obama on Russia, lost.

Yet, in 2016, Trump ran as a different kind of Republican, an opponent of the Iraq War and an anti-interventionist who wanted to get along with Russia’s Vladimir Putin and get out of these Middle East wars.

Looking closely at the front-running candidates for the Democratic nomination of 2020 — Joe Biden, Sanders, Kamala Harris, Beto O’Rourke, Pete Buttigieg, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker — not one appears to be as hawkish as Trump has become.

Trump pulled us out of the nuclear deal with Iran negotiated by Secretary of State John Kerry and reimposed severe sanctions.

He declared Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist organization, to which Iran has responded by declaring U.S. Central Command a terrorist organization. Ominously, the IRGC and its trained Shiite militias in Iraq are in close proximity to U.S. troops.

Trump has recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, moved the U.S. Embassy there, closed the consulate that dealt with Palestinian affairs, cut off aid to the Palestinians, recognized Israel’s annexation of the Golan Heights seized from Syria in 1967, and gone silent on Bibi Netanyahu’s threat to annex Jewish settlements on the West Bank.

Sanders, however, though he stands by Israel, is supporting a two-state solution and castigating the “right-wing” Netanyahu regime.

Trump has talked of pulling all U.S. troops out of Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. Yet the troops are still there.

Though Trump came into office promising to get along with the Russians, he sent Javelin anti-tank missiles to Ukraine and announced a pullout from Ronald Reagan’s 1987 INF treaty that outlawed all land-based intermediate-range nuclear missiles.

When Putin provocatively sent 100 Russian troops to Caracas — ostensibly to repair the S-400 anti-aircraft and anti-missile system that was damaged in recent blackouts — Trump, drawing a red line, ordered the Russians to “get out.”

Biden is expected to announce next week. If the stands he takes on Russia, China, Israel and the Middle East are more hawkish than the rest of the field, he will be challenged by the left wing of his party, and by Sanders, who voted “no” on the Iraq War that Biden supported.

The center of gravity of U.S. politics is shifting toward the Trump position of 2016. And the anti-interventionist wing of the GOP is growing.

And when added to the anti-interventionist and anti-war wing of the Democratic Party on the Hill, together, they are able, as on the Yemen War Powers resolution, to produce a new bipartisan majority.

Prediction: By the primaries of 2020, foreign policy will be front and center, and the Democratic Party will have captured the “no-more-wars” political high ground that Candidate Donald Trump occupied in 2016.

A series of eight explosions rocked Catholic churches and luxury hotels in Sri Lanka as Christians began Easter Sunday celebrations, with over 200 killed and hundreds injured, media reported, citing police.

The blasts started at around 8:45am local time at St. Anthony’s Church in Colombo and St. Sebastian’s Church in Negombo, a Catholic-majority town outside of the capital. The Zion Church in Batticaloa on the eastern coast was also targeted. At around the same time, the Shangri-La, Cinnamon Grand and Kingsbury five-star hotels were also hit, police confirmed.

Two more explosions happened later in the day, targeting two more locations in Colombo. All attacks appear to have been coordinated.

At least 207 people were killed, Reuters reported, citing police. More than 450 were injured in the attacks.

Alleged footage of the aftermath, shared on social media, showed chaos and large-scale destruction inside at least one of the churches.

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris take a look at a Texas A&M University speech, and subsequent interview, with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

The former CIA Director admitted, ‘as an aside’ to the question asked, that the Intelligence agency he headed up before being appointed as the top US Diplomat had a motto “we lied, we cheated, we stole”…which, according to Pompeo, contained entire CIA training courses based on ‘lying, cheating and stealing.’

Pompeo finally speaks some truth.
