We Must Adhere to America’s Rulebook

by: Brent Smith

What does it mean when we on the right describe ourselves as conservatives? What is it that we are trying so hard to save, preserve or prevent the loss of – which is what to conserve means.

Those on the left would say we wish to conserve the days of slavery and Jim Crow – or maybe the white-old days of the 1950s before the Civil Rights movement.

Despite the fact that all those bad times were born of the left in this country, we conservatives wish to reestablish and conserve America’s original set of governing rules.

Our nation was founded on a set of ideals – the Declaration of Independence, and rules – the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Yet Americans today seem only to care, and demand absolute adherence to some rules, while all but ignoring others. read more

Florida Proving the Lockdown-Happy States Wrong

Wait … What?

You mean to tell me that draconian lockdowns, shutdowns, business and school closures, depression, isolation & suicide have, it turns out, not been effective?

from Daniel Horowitz at the Blaze:

Horowitz: With no lockdown or mask mandate, Florida has roughly same hospitalization level as 2018 flu season

The entire pretext for shutting down our liberties is built upon misinformation read more

Virtue Signalling doesn’t always Work

by: Brent Smith

So this is rich, and maybe even a little delicious. After all the identity politics and feminist virtue signalling, not even the first female college football faux-player could save even a black man’s job.

It was my understanding that black football coaches were pretty safe from reprimand and firing. But apparently I’m wrong. Despite being black, Vanderbilt sacked it’s head coach, maybe … just maybe because he sucks and not necessarily because he’s black. read more

As home to a waste-to-energy power plant topped by an artificial ski slope, while featuring running trails and a rooftop bar, the CopenHill facility in Denmark was already a particularly versatile space. Some finishing touches have now been added to the building facade that will add yet another activity to its repertoire, with the routes now complete on what is claimed to be the tallest climbing wall in the world. read more

Video Podcast – NASCAR Sells Out

by: Brent Smith

NASCAR has flipped. They sold out to the Race warrior, cancel culture rage mob.

And in case you don’t know what NASCAR stands for. It’s an acronym.

It stands for: National Association of Southern Crappy-Ass Racists.

And I wonder how many think that it really does?

Anyway – I can’t believe how astonishingly fast this is all happening.

We, as a nation, are racing head-long into the ash heap of history, as two of the most astonishing stories are rolled into one. read more

NFL Draft Preview

If you’re anything like me, you desperately craving anything that remotely resembles a sporting event.

Since that isn’t going to happen soon enough, I suppose the only thing we to look forward to is the NFL “Hunker Down” Draft.

On a recent broadcast of the Rich Eisen podcast, he was able to reveal several photos of team General Manager’s in-home draft rooms. It ain’t sports, but at least it’s something.

So now we wait for one more day. In the interim, you may enjoy this video representing what the “Hunker Down” Draft may look like and how smoothly it is likely to go.

Enjoy: read more

There Will be an NFL Draft Afterall

And it’s going to happen no matter doesn’t like it. So declares NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

from the Blaze:

NFL declares 2020 Draft will go on as scheduled — and Commissioner Goodell makes it clear that he will not tolerate dissent: ‘Grounds for disciplinary action’

Do not question the commish

With the spread of the coronavirus, professional sports leagues have postponed or canceled hundreds of games, races, matches, and other events. But the NFL will not let the COVID-19 pandemic keep them from holding the 2020 Draft, Sports Illustrated reported.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced the decision Thursday night.

And for anyone connected to the league who might have concerns about holding such a major event when the country is social distancing and entire states are under stay-at-home orders, Goodell has a message: Shut up, or risk punishment. read more

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

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

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
