Retired Marine Col. Jeffrey A. Powers Letter To The NFL (VIDEO) … “I observed a player getting a personal foul for twerking in the end zone after scoring. I guess that’s much worse than disrespecting the flag and our National Anthem.”
DOES THE NFL AND THE LEFT REALLY WANT TO BE ON THE OPPOSING SIDE OF THIS RETIRED MARINE?
Retired Marine Col. Jeffrey A. Powers letter to the NFL puts life and everything into perspective. The words and actions of a true American hero and of those who defend our liberties and freedom as compared to a bunch of spoiled, over-paid malcontents. Let’s remember who the real heroes are in life, they where uniforms, not sports jerseys.
I’ve been a season pass holder at Yankee Stadium, Yale Bowl and Giants Stadium.
I missed the ’90-’91 season because I was with a battalion of Marines in Desert Storm. 14 of my wonderful Marines returned home with the American Flag draped across their lifeless bodies. My last conversation with one of them, Sgt Garrett Mongrella, was about how our Giants were going to the Super Bowl. He never got to see it.
Many friends, Marines, and Special Forces Soldiers who worked with or for me through the years returned home with the American Flag draped over their coffins.
Now I watch multi millionaire athletes who never did anything in their lives but play a game, disrespect what brave Americans fought and died for. They are essentially spitting in the faces and on the graves of real men, men who have actually done something for this country beside playing with a ball and believing they’re something special! They’re not! My Marines and Soldiers were!
You are complicit in this!
You’ll fine players for large and small infractions but you lack the morale courage and respect for our nation and the fallen to put an immediate stop to this.
Yes, I know, it’s their 1st Amendment right to behave in such a despicable manner. What would happen if they came out and disrespected you or the refs publicly?
I observed a player getting a personal foul for twerking in the end zone after scoring. I guess that’s much worse than disrespecting the flag and our National Anthem. Hmmmmm, isn’t it his 1st Amendment right to express himself like an idiot in the end zone? Why is taunting not allowed yet taunting America is ok? You fine players for wearing 9-11 commemorative shoes yet you allow scum on the sidelines to sit, kneel or pump their pathetic fist in the air. They are so deprived with their multimillion dollar contracts for playing a freaking game! You condone it all by your refusal to act. You’re just as bad and disgusting as they are. I hope Americans boycott any sponsor who supports that rabble you call the NFL. I hope they turn off the TV when any team that allowed this disrespect to occur, without consequence, on the sidelines. I applause those who have not.
Legends and heroes do NOT wear shoulder pads. They wear body armor and carry rifles.
They make minimum wage and spend months and years away from their families. They don’t do it for an hour on Sunday. They do 24/7 often with lead,not footballs, coming in their direction. They watch their brothers carted off in pieces not on a gurney to get their knee iced. They don’t even have ice! Many do t have legs or arms. Some wear blue and risk their lives daily on the streets of America. They wear fire helmets and go upstairs into the fire rather than down to safety. On 9-11, hundreds vanished. They are the heroes.
I hope that your high paid protesting pretty boys and you look in that mirror when you shave tomorrow and see what you really are, legends in your own minds. You need to hit the road and take those worms with you!
Time to change the channel.

Michelle Malkin Discusses the Roy Moore Alabama Special Election Win and the NFL National Anthem Flack
Michelle Malkin discusses the winner and losers of last night’s Alabama GOP special Senate primary. The draining of the swamp begins. Let this be a message to establishment, incumbent Republicans. You were sent there for a reason, not to just be reelected and do nothing. Malkin also discusses the disrespect from NFL players toward the National Anthem. Malkin tells them to get off their knees and asses and do something. If you are protesting something, then do something.
ITS ONLY JUST BEGUN …
According to Nielsen ratings, the NFL is down 11% this year as compared to 2016. After this past weekends despicable actions by NFL players and owners alike, look for the TV ratings to slide even more. The fans are pissed at the disrespectful actions of the NFL and their disrespect the the U.S. flag, the National Anthem and to the men and women who have died protecting our liberties and freedoms. Look for the ratings to go down much further as We the People teach the NFL a valuable lesson in patriotism, freedom and respect. One has to wonder what the NFL is thinking in attacking their fan base and some how stating they are unified. Unified against what exactly, the very people who buy their merchandise, pay for tickets and watch the games? DirecTV has experienced a wave of cancellations amid the NFL National Anthem protects. Keep it up NFL, you better figure out who butters your bread and why. Americans have other things they can do on Sundays than deal with you disrespectful malcontents.
Through three weeks, viewership for national telecasts of NFL games is down 11 percent this season compared to 2016, the Nielsen company said on Tuesday.
Nielsen said the games averaged 17.63 million viewers for the first three weeks of last season, and have dipped to 15.65 million this year. The Nielsen figures don’t include many of the Sunday afternoon games that are shown to a regional audience, but not a national one.
The NFL ratings are in focus because of President Donald Trump’s suggestion that viewers are turned off by a protest against police brutality that began with quarterback Colin Kaepernick refusing to stand for the national anthem. The protests spread rapidly this past weekend following the president’s criticism of people involved.
Next week’s ratings will be even more closely watched, since conservative groups and Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity have called for people angered by the protests to boycott this weekend’s games.
WTF!!! GOP Senate Majority Leader McConnell Whines Senate Failures are Due to Trump’s & Others Have “Excessive Expectations” (VIDEO)
AMERICA, IT’S TIME TO DRAIN THE SWAMP, REPUBLICANS NEED NEW LEADERSHIP AND NEW SENATORS … DITCH MITCH!!!
WTF, McConnell must go!!! Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blamed President Trump for the Senate’s lack of getting anything dome on Monday by stating the fault lies with President Trump’s “excessive expectations” of the legislative process. McConnell said, “Our new president, of course, has not been in this line of work before. I think he had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process.” WHAT! You are blaming President Trump for your lack of leadership? EXPECTATIONS? Are you kidding me!!! It is the American people that had expectations because of your promises that were obviously lies. For 7 years you made promises to the America people that if the GOP was given the Senate, you would repeal Obamacare. You even passes a BS repeal bill that was for nothing but show. Then you whined that the Republicans needed a GOP president who would sign an Obamacare repeal bill to be elected and the American people provided that too. You haven’t done much because you haven’t done much and because you suck!!! Maybe the reason why Donald Trump and the American people had expectations was because your lies gave them the expectations.
McConnell, you are exactly what is wrong in Washington, DC and you need to be sent packing as soon as possible. Retire, step down, just leave. You, not Trump, YOU have failed the people. God forbid anyone have expectations from the SWAMP, and for that reason about 90% of you should be voted out of office. What kind of a loser are you that you would blame other for your failings. YOU HAVE HAD HOW LONG AND YOU GAVE US NOTHING. Yes Mitch, the President and We the People have expectations of Congress and if you can’t deliver, GET THE HELL OUT OF THE WAY!!! You don’t just get to stay in the Senate for life and do nothing.
Just how out of touch is McConnell? Does he have any comprehension why Donald Trump pulled off one of the greatest political upsets in American history and won the 2016 presidential election? People wanted change. They wanted the repeal of Obamacare! They wanted America first! Either get on board Mitch or leave.
FLASHBACK 2013: RINO Mitch McConnell Promises to Repeal Obamacare ‘Root and Branch’
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Monday expressed frustration with what he called President Trump’s “excessive expectations” of the legislative process as Republicans struggle to chalk up major achievements under a united government.
During a speech to the Florence Rotary Club in Kentucky, McConnell said many of Trump’s “artificial deadlines” are “unrelated to reality,” indicating the president may not fully grasp the ins and outs of lawmaking.
“Now our new president has of course not been in this line of work before. And I think had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process,” McConnell said.
“And so, part of the reason I think people feel like we’re underperforming is because too many artificial deadlines unrelated to the reality and the complexity of legislature may not have been fully understood.”
McConnell’s speech comes less than two weeks after the Senate failed by one vote to move forward on plans to repeal and replace ObamaCare.
Trump took to Twitter to criticize McConnell, calling for changes to the legislative filibuster, which the majority leader has rejected in the past.

JUST HOW MENTALLY SICK IS THE LEFT?
President Donald Trump delivered a speech to the 2017 National Scout Jamboree in West Virginia on Monday night, to the joy of the Scouts in attendance and to the outrage and indignation of some reporters. What a shock. President Trump praised the Boy Scouts and their success, but the small minded MSM and LEFT could only hear what they wanted to. How very sad. It would appear that the MSM took offense to being called “fake news” and because President Trump referenced loyalty in his speech. It didn’t take long for the LEFT to become unhinged, but of course they never had a problem when Barack Obama would go into class rooms and teachers would indoctrinate the youth of America, Mmm, mmm, mmm, Barack Hussein Obama. Oh the hypocrisy. The LEFT just cannot get over the fact that President Trump is loved by many. The LEFT just cannot stand, God, Country, Brave, Loyalty and other good qualities.
President Donald Trump turned a Boy Scouts event into a campaign-style rally Monday, starting off by saying he’d put aside the “fake news” and other issues in Washington while addressing the Boy Scouts of America 2017 National Scout Jamboree.
“I said, who the hell wants to speak about politics when I’m in front of the Boy Scouts?” Trump said.
Trump went on to dive into politics anyway — blasting the media, pushing for the repeal of Obamacare and making a pointed remark about “loyalty.”
Listing off the virtues of Boy Scouts at the West Virginia speech, Trump said: “As the scout law says, a scout is trustworthy, loyal,” Trump said, before adding, “We could use some more loyalty, I will tell you that.”
Just a note to the clueless and vile LEFT, who hate the Boy Scouts anyhow, there is a reason why President Trump referenced loyalty. Because according to the Boy Scout Law, a Scout is:
