Rapinoe, Like all Athletes, Should Just Shut Up and Play

Like most Americans, I love to watch the Olympics. What makes it special is that it only comes around every two years – since they began staggering the Summer and Winter games.

But every so often, politics creeps into the games.

We all remember the pink-haired wingnut and social justice warrior, Megan Rapinoe, of the U.S. Women’s Soccer team, who “took a knee” during the playing of our National Anthem at a World Cup game. That was special.

But unlike her contemporary and fellow social justice windbag, Colin Kaepernick, Megan remains employed. This is likely due to the fact that her team is not privately owned, but is run by the U.S. Soccer Federation as a nonprofit, 501(c)(3).

We haven’t had to endure Megan’s nonsense lately. However, with the Olympics right around the corner, I’m sure she’s already busy planning something that will surely be special. And by special, I mean completely asinine.

But not if the International Olympic Committee has anything to say about it. read more

A Cheaper High-End Turntable?

I guess “cheaper” is relative.

Mark Levinson has been in the audio business for nearly 50 years, and if you’re not familiar with the company from its hi-fi gear, then you may have heard the Harman brand’s sound systems in cars like the Lexus RC350. The company launched its first turntable at CES 2017, and has now returned to Las Vegas with its second – № 5105. read more

WND Exclusive – Latest Federal ‘Omnibus’ – Worse than Sausage-Making

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Many Americans have been complaining that due to the impeachment nonsense and such, nothing is getting done in Washington … on behalf of the American people.

I disagree. Any time our “lawmakers” aren’t meeting to write bills and pass laws, they’re not fleecing us … any further.

Unfortunately, just prior to Christmas break, they all got together in a whirlwind session to do just that.

Just prior to D.C.’s holiday respite, our bureaucrats and elected officials went from zero to 100 miles per hour in no time flat. read more

Podcast – War Powers – Did Trump have the Authority to Kill Soleimani?

by: Brent Smith

Did Trump have the right, the authority under the Constitution to kill Soleimani and that other bag of dirty, al-Muhandis?

That’s been the burning question on everyone’s mind and just another perceived log, stoking the democrat fires of impeachment. Can this also be added to their Articles of Impeachment – or maybe saved for later?

Was Trump Constitutionally correct in “unilaterally” ordering the strike against the left’s new war hero, Qassem Soleimani?

Well, the short answer is yes, and I will explain exactly why the president was and is right and the dems are once again wrong. read more

Well Democrats – You Reap What You Sow

This is what you get when you all pushed your party further and further left – blowing past liberalism and progressivism to socialism/communism. What did you think was going to happen as you promoted and gave a stage to a 29 year old Bernie Sanders.

The democrat party aligned itself with radical academia and arrogantly thought it could control whatever progeny sprung forth. And now you have to live with the result of their handiwork.

Ocasio-Cortez is just doing exactly what she was taught to do. Use other people’s money to further her own ends and bury anyone who stands in her way.

Your Frankenstein monster lives and she’s coming to your district to incite mayhem and destruction.

And it couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch.

The DipStick

Although it may be hard to believe, ice fishermen do enjoy a cold drink or two while they’re sitting outside in the winter. The DipStick was designed for such anglers, as it keeps those beverages chilled – but not frozen – in the lake water under the ice. read more
