NFL Fines Running Back Over a Donation

I am certainly not a fan of the Dallas Cowboys. You might even say I’m an anti-fan of the so-called “America’s Team.” And early onImage result for Ezekiel Elliott fined I had my mind made up about their star running back Ezekiel Elliot. Frankly I thought he appeared to be an arrogant chump.

Well, evidently looks can be deceiving. I have new-found respect for Elliot, although I will never become a Cowboys fan.

STAR COWBOYS RUNNING BACK CALLS THE NFL ‘RIDICULOUS’ AFTER BEING HIT WITH RIDICULOUS FINE

Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliot isn’t holding back his criticism of the NFL anymore.

The star running back, 23, was hit with a $13,369 fine this week for “unsportsmanlike conduct,” which seems pretty reasonable, except he only received the fine because he dropped a $21 donation into a giant red Salvation Army pot after to celebrate a touchdown. read more

Democrat Immigration Hypocrisy on Display Yet Again

from the Daily Caller:

FEINSTEIN URGED OBAMA TO USE PRESIDENTIAL POWER TO LIMIT IMMIGRATION: ‘NO LEGISLATION NECESSARY’

  • Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California encouraged then-President Barack Obama to use broad presidential powers to tighten immigration rules in response to a wave of migration from Central America in 2014.
  • In a letter to Obama, Feinstein cited the same statutory authority that President Donald Trump invoked to make illegal border-crossers ineligible for asylum.
  • That authority comes from Section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which allows the president to “impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”

Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein encouraged then-President Barack Obama to use the “very broad power” granted to him by Congress to limit immigration in any way he saw fit, according to a letter obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. read more

from the Daily Caller:

SUPREME COURT WEIGHS TRUMP ADMINISTRATION’S POWER TO DETAIN CRIMINAL IMMIGRANTS

  • The Supreme Court is weighing the federal government’s power to detain migrants after they serve prison sentences.

Another Promise Kept – Iran Deal Scrapped

Imagine that – a president, or frankly any politician save for a select few, who makes

promises on the campaign trail and has the nerve to actually do what he said and keep them. What a novelty! Too bad it actually is. But for president Trump, it seems to be business as usually – make a campaign promise and “make it so Number One.” Another promise kept.

Princeton Physicist Points Out The Obvious: Climate Models ‘Don’t Work’

Princeton University physicist William Happer is not a fan of models used to predict future manmade global warming, and stars in a new educational video laying out the reasons he believes climate models are faulty.

from The Daily Caller:

128 Countries Call Trump’s Jerusalem Decision ‘Null And Void’ As Nikki Haley Threatens To Cut UN Aid

The United Nations General Assembly on Thursday denounced the Trump administration’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, an move that U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley said would cause Washington to rethink its financial support of the international organization.

In a 128-9 vote, the UNGA passed a resolution, drafted by Egypt, that expresses “deep regret at recent decisions concerning the status of Jerusalem.”

The resolution calls for Jerusalem’s final status to be negotiated between Israel and the Palestinians. It also affirms that any decisions and actions that “purport to have altered, the character, status or demographic composition of the Holy City of Jerusalem” — a thinly veiled reference to President Donald Trump’s recognition — are “null and void.” read more
