Kaepernick is Ready for The NFL – Are they Ready for Him?

After the Superbowl, I usually go into a period of dormancy. Don’t care for basketball, baseball is boring and I can watch enoughImage result for take a chance on Kaepernick hockey to stay interested. So when I see a headline regarding anything football, I glom on, no matter trivial.

So Kaepernick is “ready” for the NFL again, eh. Question is, is the NFL ready for him, and will any team take a chance on quarterback who may no longer have it. Also will any team risk any potential antics on his part.

from the Blaze:

Colin Kaepernick looking to get back in NFL after settling grievance—and a QB vacancy just opened

Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is reportedly ready to get back in the NFL now that he has settled his grievance against the league that claimed he had been blackballed for protesting the national anthem.

Kaepernick has not played professional football since 2016, but a source close to the former quarterback said he’s ready to go if called upon. The Miami Dolphins traded their starting quarterback Friday, creating a vacancy Kaepernick could potentially fill. read more

“Yes,” whispered the small voice.

Drugs and Transgenders – Two Sides of the Same Coin

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

The medical profession, it seems, often succumbs to a pack mentality, just like many other sectors of society.

They appear just as susceptible to peer pressure and intimidation as any other profession. Or maybe it’s just intellectual sloth. Maybe it’s a combination of both.

Two points come to mind. Prescription drugs and the LGBT movement – specifically, the latest fad of transgenderism. They seem unrelated, but they are not.

The opioid epidemic that has a strangle hold on the nation did not begin with drug cartels pushing these “medications” on the unsuspecting.

It started, innocently enough, in the offices of our local physicians. read more

One of the many ways scientists are working to unravel the mysteries of Alzheimer’s is by conducting experiments on mice that have been genetically engineered to develop the disease. Researchers pondering the protective potential of compounds found in green tea and carrots have again taken this route and returned some promising results, with the Alzheimer’s mice demonstrating unimpaired cognitive function following a carefully designed bout of treatment. read more

Fox News and the Right Must not Fold to Leftist Pressure Groups

from the American Spectator:

You Bet Media Matters — and That’s Why Fox News Has to Stand by Its People

Remember when the Left tried to drive Rush Limbaugh off the air seven years ago after he called Sandra Fluke a “slut”? Oh my, how they salivated as they got some advertisers to withdraw ads from Rush’s show! They thought they had Rush off the air. They really did. Carbonite, the computer-data back-up company, made a big splash when they announced they were pulling their ads off Rush. But Rush stuck it out. He stayed strong. And, like the Energizer Bunny, all these years later he still is going and going and going, while history records that Fluke was a fluke. And Carbonite’s stock value nose-dived. read more

After All the Hype – Pelosi Says Trump’s not Worth Impeaching

from the Federalist:

If Pelosi Believed Her Claims About Trump And Russia, She Would Impeach

There was some sad news for progressives yesterday as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told Washington Post Magazine that she will not pursue impeachment against President Donald Trump. It’s not just Pelosi: House intelligence committee Chairman Adam Schiff also came out against trying to remove the president from office, saying “failed impeachment is a bad idea,” and that it can’t happen “in the absence of very graphic evidence.”

The speaker claimed “he’s just not worth it,” but anyone who has read a newspaper or turned on the television in the past two years knows full well that if Democrats believed there were serious evidence of collusion between Russia and Trump, articles of impeachment would be flying out of printers in her office. read more
