Coming Soon to America – Fines and Arrests for Unapproved Speech?

by: Brent Smith

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Think about it. Is it not the next logical step to a complete shutdown of free and possibly controversial speech?

But that’s ridiculous – right?

No one is even suggesting such an absurd and over-the-top solution to curb offensive speech.

Sure, they’re have been many dozens of conservatives, particularly on College campuses, who have been protested, shouted down and even run off campus by leftist gangs.

But that’s where it ends. No one is even suggesting fining people who offend.

And if you’re thinking that no one in the country has been fined for such a thing, you’d be right. At least not yet. read more

Are You Dreaming of a Gay Christmas?

If so, you may soon get your wish. Maybe not this season, but probably next. I personally know that when I think of Christmas, that’s the first thing that springs to mind. Maybe John Legend and Kelly Clarkson have their next hit: I’m Dreamin of a Gay Christmas!

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter’s “TV’s Top 5” podcast, Hallmark Channel chief executive Bill Abbott said the company is “open” to doing movies with gay lead characters.

“I’m gay, where are the same-sex movies?” one of the interviewers in the podcast asked. “Have you talked about incorporating stories about same-sex couples at Christmas?” read more

Eddie Gallagher Case Typifies the Dysfunction of SEAL Leadership

I’ve been mulling over writing about the poor treatment Navy SEAL Chief Petty Officer Eddie Gallagher received over the past few years at that the hands of the wussified modern American Naval community. The irony is that they are acting like leftists, as in they are acting simultaneously like politically correct girly-men and bullies.

By wussification, I mean hamstringing special operators with very limiting rules of engagement (ROE) and then bullying them if and when one steps over their arbitrarily created red lines. Add to that, the heavy toll of over-deployment.

I reached out to some operators I know, and unfortunately received little comment. I can certainly understand why.

Then I was sent this from SEAL Chief Brandon Webb’s site SOFREP. It pretty much sums up my feelings on the topic.

from Brandon Webb at SOFREP:

TRUMP’S INTERVENTION, GALLAGHER, WAR CRIMES, TOXIC CULTURE: THE ISSUES OF THE SEAL TEAMS

(U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Russell Rhodes Jr./Released)

I wouldn’t want my son to be in the SEAL Teams that exist today, it’s a mafioso environment where everyone has dirt on each other. The culture is more Hells Angels than a professional Special Ops unit.” – Anonymous Navy SEAL

#Truth

I was initially worried about addressing this topic because of the toxic peer pressure that exists among the SEAL community inside and outside. However, my business network kept asking me about Gallagher and Trump’s intervention in his case, and in the end, I decided that if the thought of speaking about this made me uncomfortable, I should just write about it.

Video Podcast – Town Seeks New Name – A Tax Deductible Newspaper – OK is not Ok

Oddly enough, the Canadian town of Asbestos thinks it should change its name. I can’t understand why, by I discuss it anyway.

The Salt Lake Tribune is seeking to become a tax deductible charity. This is NOT a good idea. As we often say, it’s a slippery slope. How can theypossibly maintain a nonpartisan status? Of course, these days, I don’t think that will matter.

When is OK not Ok? When your texting a snowflake. Now texting OK is considered to be aggressive and dismissive. Oh Please! read more

Chick-fil-A Lurches Further Left

Well, I wrote about Chick-fil-A a few days, and it just got worse. As I stated, this is what happens when the kids take over a company their Father built in his image. And this case, an image of family and Christian values. Oh the horror! I couldn’t be more disappointed in CEO Dan Cathy and the recently acquired wayward vision of his father’s restaurant chain. And to give a nickel to the Southern Poverty Law Center is 5 cents too many.

from the Daily Signal:

Chick-Fil-A Donated to Southern Poverty Law Center, Others on Left

Chick-fil-A, which has promoted itself as a Christian business, is now under fire from both sides of the aisle for its charitable giving strategy. Pictured: Demonstrators protest outside a Chick-fil-A restaurant in California on Aug. 1, 2012. (Photo: Tibrina Hobson/Getty Images)

 

Chick-fil-A donated to the Southern Poverty Law Center and other left-wing organizations that promote abortion and LGBT rights, issues that run counter to the fast-food chain’s image as a Christian conservative business.

According to public tax documents first reported Tuesday by Townhall, Chick-fil-A donated $2,500 to the Southern Poverty Law Center in 2017 despite the organization’s history of hostility toward conservative causes.

Our Favorite Sport Suffers as America Wussifies

from the American Spectator:

Football Is Good for Kids, Propaganda Is Not

Keep those Friday Night Lights on, unless you want America’s youth to grow up less healthy and more risk averse.

Americans watch more NFL this season after several years of ratings decline. While couches and seats fill, fields go empty. For the first time in 30 years, high school sports witnessed a participation drop last year, with football’s loss of 31,000 athletes primarily fueling the decline. Youth football more glaringly experiences a participation freefall. read more

Chick-fil-A’s Error in Judgment

by: Brent Smith

The old saying used to be: “You are what you eat.” Now it’s, “You are what you serve – Chicken.”

Anyway you slice it, Chick-fil-A “chickened” out. Despite all the support we have given them, they just caved to the cancel culture, identity politics mob, which is a tiny fraction of actual people, compared to those have stood up and bravely supported Chick-fil-A for its courage.

Bisnow reported that Chick-fil-A will no longer be giving to Christian charities – those who don’t happen to tow the LGBT line. Oh the horror!

I’ve seen a few conservatives write that they have not in fact caved to the “shut-um-down” mob, but in my opinion they have, and it’s a damn shame, and completely unnecessary.

What has happened to the restaurant chain since the original dustup over Chick-fil-A president, S Truett Cathy’s pronouncement of his PERSONAL Christian view? Did the brand suffer? Not hardly. They went from a distant 7th largest fast food chain, passing over many heavy-hitters, to vault into third place, behind only behemoths, McDonalds and Starbucks. And that’s being open only six days out of the week. They’re closed on Sunday. What religious zealots – right? read more

Kunta Kaepernick – the $20 Million Slave

by: Brent Smith

No Audio Version

Colin Kaepernick has been duped. He exited college holding a golden ticket, being drafted in 2011 by the San Francisco 49ers as a high second round pick – 36th overall. And he made the most of it. He took his team to one Superbowl and just missed another.

By all accounts, he was good kid and teammate.

Then he met his girlfriend Nessa Diab, a leftist Black Lives Matter type radical, who, in my opinion, poisoned his mind. He went from good player, good person and good teammate to an angry, put upon, radical activist – just like his girlfriend. But I’m sure his transformation was purely coincidental.

By his own actions, he was let go, not to play another down in the NFL. And since then, none of the 32 NFL teams have come-a-calling. Nobody wants him. Not because he doesn’t still have talent. No one wants him because he’s a vocal pain in the butt, and too much of a disruptive distraction for any team – for any locker room.

Just a few days ago the NFL did something extraordinary. Something they’ve never done before. They arranged a private workout for Kaepernick in Atlanta and invited all 32 teams to attend. read more

Piers Morgan Takes Out the View

The former CNN host and unapologetic leftist, Piers Morgan, has become a great defender of president Donald Trump. Now he exposes the women of The View, after a visit from Donald Jr, as the lying radical harpies that they are. Good for him!

from the Daily Mail:

PIERS MORGAN: In one brutally ballsy talk-show appearance, Donald Trump Jr. gave us a stunning View of barefaced lying liberal celebrity hypocrisy – and it wasn’t a pretty sight

Even before Donald Trump Jr. appeared on The View yesterday, liberal celebrities were howling their fury.

Will and Grace actress Debra Messing, who hasn’t stopped hysterically raging about all things Trump for the past four years, was incensed the President’s son was even allowed to go on at all.

‘Why would you bring him on?’ she tweeted the ABC show’s Twitter account. ‘You trying to be ‘balanced’?’

You could almost feel the bile laced all over her lips as she spat out the dreaded b-word. read more

End the Army’s Social Engineering Experiment

from One News Now:

Trump urged to rescue Army from ‘gender-neutral hole’

A conservative military watchdog is calling on President Donald Trump to dump the Obama-era social engineering experiment, which has resulted in more than four of five women soldiers failing the new Army Combat Fitness Test.

During the Obama administration, Pentagon officials bought into false promises of a “gender-free” military where men and women would be equally capable, immune to sexual attractions, and interchangeable in physically challenging missions. And in December 2015, former Defense Secretary Ashton Carter authorized women to serve in frontline combat units. read more
