SICK-SICK-SICK!….GQ Magazine Names Colin Kaepernick ‘Citizen of the Year’



GQ Magazine named its “men of the year” this morning, with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick receiving the honor of Citizen of the Year.

The magazine released the cover featuring the four “new American heroes,” including Kaepernick, late night host Stephen Colbert, NBA star Kevin Durant and actress Gal Gadot.

The accompanying piece from GQ is titled, “Colin Kaepernick Will Not Be Silenced.” Describing Kaepernick, the editors wrote:

He’s been vilified by millions and locked out of the NFL—all because he took a knee to protest police brutality. But Colin Kaepernick’s determined stand puts him in rare company in sports history: Muhammad Ali, Jackie Robinson—athletes who risked everything to make a difference.
Kaepernick filed a grievance against the NFL last month, accusing the owners of colluding to keep him out of the league following his controversial decision to kneel during the national anthem last season.

The former 49ers QB became a free agent after last season and remains unsigned. The issue of national anthem protests has remained an issue for the league after some players continued to kneel this season.

In September, President Trump called for NFL teams to “fire” any players who protest the “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

Kaepernick first knelt for the anthem in the summer of 2016 before a preseason game, saying he was protesting racial injustice and violence by police officers against minorities.

Bar Boycotts Sunday NFL Games, Raises Money for Veterans Instead




This Veterans Day weekend, a New Jersey bar did not show any NFL games and instead raised money for veterans.

On Sunday, Woody’s Roadside Tavern held a special concert featuring members of the New Jersey-based country group After the Reign, with a portion of the proceeds going to veterans charities, including the Green Beret Foundation and the Special Forces Charitable Trust.

Woody’s co-owners Chris Maltese, Jennifer Knapp and Rob Johnson joined Ainsley Earhardt on “Fox & Friends” to discuss the event and why they decided not to show NFL games.

Maltese said the idea came about after a regular customer, who is a veteran, asked them to turn off the football games on Sunday in honor of veterans.

“We thought about, and we thought it was a great idea,” Maltese said.

Knapp added that they wanted to give back to the brave men and women who put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms, so they organized the patriotic event.

Johnson said they had veterans drive from hours away just to be a part of it, and it was a phenomenal day.

“Yesterday was the pinnacle of my life, to do something for the veterans first-hand in a local community,” Johnson said.

The NFL has been embroiled in the controversy over some players and teams refusing to stand for the national anthem.

Colin Kaepernick started the trend last year when he played quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, in a protest against racial inequality and police brutality. Although Kaepernick remains a free agent this NFL season, other players and teams have continued to protest.

The issue was thrust back into the spotlight in September when President Donald Trump said NFL owners should fire any “son of a b****” who doesn’t respect the anthem and flag. He has gone on to call the demonstrations disrespectful and blamed them for the NFL’s lower ratings and attendance.

New York Church Invites Congregation To Bring Guns To Service


The bitter clingers the left talks about.

Via Daily Mail:

The pastor of a New York state church has declared that his church is ‘NOT a gun free zone.’

In the wake of November 5’s deadly church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, the Lighthouse Mexico Church of God in Oswego County, New York is inviting its congregants to bring their firearms to church services as a protective measure. […]

‘Times are changing,’ Russell told Spectrum News, noting that it is church leadership that has advocated for the ability to bear arms during services, not necessarily the congregation.

‘People say ‘well, pastor, you’re talking about killing some,’ and I say ‘well, if I don’t protect my people, I’m being complicit,’ Russell said, adding that, ‘A shooting here, that’s not going to happen.’

Outside the Lighthouse Mexico Church of God, a sign now reads, ‘We say it again, we are not a gun free zone’ and the church’s website prominently displays a scrolling message reiterating the message and also stating ‘we protect our people!’

Spectrum News reported that the Pentecostal church offers parishioners lessons in self-defense and identifying suspicious behavior

For Veterans Day Weekend

Veterans Day Nov 12

There are a few issues that demand motivation to act.


For those of you who were insulted by the NFL players’ actions in regards to the National Anthem; here is something you can do to voice your opinion. It is totally contradictory to complain about the players kneeling, sitting or not being present for the National Anthem and continue to support the NFL. After all, the fans do support the players salaries!

Veterans are asking for a National boycott of the NFL on Sunday November 12th, Veterans Day Weekend. Boycott all NFL football telecasts., ticket holders should not attend any games; let the teams play in empty stadiums. Pass this post along to all your friends and family. Honor our military, some of whom come home with the American Flag draped over their coffins. Continue with the weekly boycott of televised games. Pass it on Shipmates.

Do something rewarding with your family like helping vets.

House Will Vote Next Week To Cap Perks For Former Presidents


Now we need to find a way to put everyone in the House & Senate on the same “Health Care & Social Security” as all of us our on then what do you bet they fix BOTH of those in less than a week? Term Limits would be very nice for EVERY politician and Judge who think they can “Legislate” from the bench.

Papa Mike!

Feel good legislation. What next, repeal of Obamacare?

Via Washington Examiner:

House lawmakers next week are expected to pass legislation that would cap pensions for former presidents, and also scale back the monetary allowance they’re allowed to use to rent an office and keep a staff.

The Former Presidents Act is expected to get a vote early next week. The bill, from Rep. Jody Hice, R-Ga., would cap the pensions of former presidents at $200,000, just a bit lower than the $205,000 they receive today.

It would also cap office and staff payments at $500,000. That would drop to $350,000 after five years, and drop again to $250,000 five years after that.

That monetary payment would also be lowered by $1 for every dollar a former president earns over $400,000 each year. Hice and other lawmakers believe that former presidents, who increasingly earn millions of dollars through speeches and book sales once they leave office, don’t need taxpayer subsidies.

“The Presidential Allowance Modernization Act presents a fair way to reduce taxpayer support to those former presidents who simply do not need such assistance, while modernizing outdated measures,” he said when he introduced the bill in September.

Infidels, it’s what’s for dinner.

Via Express:

A SELF-PROCLAIMED imam linked to a terror attack investigation told his followers it was “OK” to eat non-Muslims….

The arrested group, aged between 18 and 65, used encrypted messaging app Telegram to plan the alleged attack, an unnamed French judicial source said.

The 27-year-old imam, who was among the nine people arrested in France, is a Swiss national who converted to Islam three years ago, Swiss prosecutors said. […]

The imam posed as an expert in Islam and made his online followers believe he had extensive knowledge and command of the Koran according to Europe 1 radio.

Europe 1 journalists who were able to read some of the Telegram messages sent by the imam, who went by the alias ‘Al-Bosni’, added he had told the members of the chat group that it was “OK to eat non-believers” if “absolutely necessary”.
