This past weekend the UFC 229 took place where Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov fought each other. There was controversy regarding that fight as Khabib got into trouble for starting a fight with McGregor’s people after the fight had completed.
Shortly after, fighter Nik Lentz won a fight of his own where he made headlines and controversy regarding his comments on Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Red State Observers reported,
“UFC Star Nik Lentz gives a shoutout to Brett Kavanaugh after his win at UFC 229.”
Fox News reported,
“Shortly after winning his UFC 229 match Saturday night, fighter Nik Lentz gave his “homie Brett Kavanaugh” a shout out for being sworn in as a Supreme Court justice.
Lentz defeated Gray Maynard in a second-round TKO in Las Vegas on Saturday. During his post-victory interview, Lentz took the first few moments to congratulate Kavanaugh, who was sworn in as the 114th Supreme Court justice late Saturday hours after the Senate voted to approve him.
“First and foremost, I want to give a shout out to my homie Brett Kavanaugh,” Lentz said. “Way to go, Special K.” He laughs after the comment and went on to answer Joe Rogan’s question. Lentz’s shout out to the new Supreme Court justice received jeers and some applause from audience members at T-Mobile Arena.
Kavanaugh was sworn in as a judge to the nation’s highest court after a contentious confirmation battle. Kavanaugh was accused of sexual assault by three women that nearly derailed his nomination. The accusations led to a second hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee and a weeklong FBI probe.
“The Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight took to the microphone Saturday at UFC 229 after defeating Gray Maynard. Amid laughter, he proclaimed his support for Kavanaugh, who was controversially confirmed into the U.S. Supreme Court hours earlier amid protests and lingering accusations of sexual assault. Lentz gave a “shoutout” to the 53-year-old judge after the Las Vegas TKO win over Maynard as he spoke to UFC commentator Joe Rogan.
Rogan approached Lentz to conduct a post-fight interview when the Minnesota-based lightweight fighter aired his political views. “Alright I’m here with the winner Nik Lentz, first of all Nik congratulations on a victory over a real veteran in Gray Maynard. I think this fight really highlighted the improvement and development you’re striking,” said Rogan.
“First and foremost, I want to give a shout out to my homie Brett Kavanaugh, way to go special K,” the fighter says to Rogan and the camera with a thumbs-up sign and a smile. “And on top of that,” Lentz says, choking off laughter, “…I’m a new fighter.”
Lentz’s odd shoutout to Kavanaugh was followed up by hundreds of “MAGA” comments on his socia media pages expressing their happiness Lentz backed President Donald Trump’s SCOTUS nominee. Several commenters note “Special K” is slang for ketamine or a recreational anesthetic.
“You are my new favorite fighter!!! We all loved you giving a shout out to Justice Kavanaugh!!!!! #maga__” reads one of the fighter’s top Instagram comments. During a post-fight interview with other reporters outside the event, Lentz explained how both he and Conor McGregor have blended entertainment and fighting to get to the top of the sport.
“When I first came into fighting I had an idea of how to get to the top and that idea was, if I worked hard and I beat people up and I kept winning I would get to the top,” said Lentz. “You have to be the complete package.
You have to be good on the mic, you have to be good in the fights, you have to produce entertaining fights. You have to have a mindset and an approach to fighting that is an entertaining idea. Fighting is an entertainment sport. Anybody who says that it’s a regular old sport like football or something where they just care if you win, is a fool.””
Lentz is 34 years old and originally from Minnesota. In the UFC he was a Featherweight from 2012 to 2015 and a Lightweight from 2005 to 2012 and from 2015 until now. As a wrestler, he worked with the Minnesota Martial Arts Academy and the American Top Team where he ranked as a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. He has been wrestling in the NCAA Division I since he started in 2005.
Aside from his Justice Kavanaugh comments, he faced former title challenger the same night, Gray Maynard whom he beat in a TKO in the second round. He dropped his opponent Maynard with a head kick and punches that followed up. Something that was unexpected.

Kurt Russel SHOWED Overpaid Celebs To Shut Up About Trump – Hits Them Where It Hurts!
Since the second that Donald Trump was declared as our next president, liberals have not stopped complaining about the outcome, even after more than a year with him in the White House. The despicable display reached the height of annoyance during every ego-stroking awards ceremony since President Trump was elected. All have turned into a Trump-trashing session for pissed of celebrities to get far too much off their chest about our unapologetic leader.
However, not everyone in Hollywood shares the same opinion as the most outspoken offender, Meryl Streep, as Kurt Russell just showed her and all of Trump’s other famous foes that it’s time to shut up about our president.
If you haven’t heard much from Russell lately, it’s because he falls into the rare category of celebrities who isn’t crying over Hillary Clinton’s loss and doesn’t feel that he needs to make his political opinions known. He’s simply doing what he’s paid well to do and wishes others in the biz would too. Since they continue to throw tantrums and trash Trump on a public stage, Russell reached his breaking point and finally fired back hard.
Should President Trump shut the border down now with no more warnings about it or delay?

“This is a business that’s heavily promulgated by people who have a politically liberal bent,” Russell began in his blistering beratement of these overpaid crybabies after what Streep said at the Golden Globes. “I don’t begrudge them that. I’m a libertarian; frankly, I think my liberalness goes far beyond theirs in a lot of ways,” he added, as reported by the American Lookout. “But yeah, we think differently, and maybe that’s cut me out of some things. I don’t care,” he said before dropping a brutal announcement on these Streep and her lemmings that left them burning.

Explaining that they’re not empowered in this business by their disgraceful attitudes against our leaders, the badass actor said they better be prepared to put their money where their nasty mouths are since they could be out of work. “People know I get along great with all kinds of directors, all kinds of actors. And I tell you, you hire me, I will show up, 24/7, and I will give you 100%. I will help you fix whatever problems come up. You hire me, I’m your boy. It’s just, it’s all about the work. And when that’s done, I am done.”
Kurt has said recently that “the last thing I like to watch is entertainers or actors get political,” which he just proved by clearly pointing out that nobody cares what celebrities have to say about politics, and that their obnoxious behavior only shows how unemployable they are. They need to just stick to what they are overpaid to do and leave the rest to the adults in charge.
Real American Tom Selleck Has Had Enough Of Rosie Trashing Trump, Hits Her Where It Hurts
Rosie O’Donnell tends to stick her foot in her mouth every time she opens it. It’s as if her foot was metal, and her mouth is a magnet. I guess it’s better than having her head shove where the sun doesn’t shine. It’s no surprise that O’Donnell is as far left as they come. She has made many inflammatory remarks on subjects she really doesn’t have a clue about. You can only imagine what her morning routine must be like. Waking up, pissed off looking in the mirror and pointing at herself ” You can do it, Rosie, Republicans are the enemy, You’re a Goddess”. I’ve got news for Rosie, there isn’t a bone in my body that thinks you’re a Goddess.
Day after day, night after night Rosie takes to Twitter and attacks President Trump, as well as his 62 million supporters.

I think it’s time Rosie is locked up in a mental hospital for a very long time because this woman is beyond couch time. No therapist can handle the insanity this woman spews. Rosie, along with 99% of Hollywood are all on the same brain wave, and it’s scary. It’s no surprise Kanye West had a mental breakdown. If I lived in Hollywood I would probably do the same.
The now-canceled “Rosie O’Donnell Show” on NBC allowed Rosie to tell the world just how biased, and hateful she was as a person. It’s no surprise that Rosie’s show was canceled. The saying goes that if you live in Hollywood you can’t be a Conservative or a Gun owner. I think Tom Selleck found that out the hard way. Selleck appeared on the show once to talk about his new movie that was about to hit the big screen. Instead of talking about the show, Rosie decided to corner, and interrogate Mr. Selleck for appearing in an NRA commercial.
Via Capitalist Magazine:
In left-leaning Hollywood, one could more safely come out of the closet and admit to child molestation than a support of the Second Amendment. For Selleck’s colossal sin of being in Hollywood and conservative, the “Queen of Nice” jumped on Selleck the way Jeffrey Dahmer attacks a Chateaubriand.
O’Donnell: “But you can’t say that guns don’t bear responsibility. … Why would the NRA be against assault rifles? This is a gun that can shoot five bullets in a second. This is the gun that those boys brought into the school. Why the NRA doesn’t say as a matter of compromise: ‘We agree. Assault weapons are not good.’”
Selleck: “I can’t speak for the NRA –”
O’Donnell: “But you’re their spokesperson, Tom. You have to be responsible for what they say.”
Selleck: “I’m not a spokesperson –”
O’Donnell: “… But you can’t say that ‘I will not take responsibility for anything the NRA represents’ if you’re saying that you’re gonna do an ad for the NRA.”
Selleck: “… You’re carefully skirting the issue. It’s an act of moral vanity, Rosie, to assume that someone who disagrees with your political agenda to solve our problems cares any less or is any less –”
O’Donnell: “I never said you cared less. Tom, I don’t think you care less. Nor do I think the men in the NRA cared less. … I simply said, why can there not be a compromise?”
Selleck: “There is a compromise. There’s a compromise in enforcing laws, there’s a compromise in not allowing kids with guns in schools. The problem is, and what you don’t seem to realize. … Look, we all hang out with people we agree with, and you have a very one-sided view of the fact, but what you don’t understand –”
O’Donnell: “As does the NRA, and the people you hang out within the NRA have a one-sided view, as well.”
Had O’Donnell allowed him to speak, Selleck might have mentioned that people use guns perhaps as often as 1 million times per year for defensive purposes, undoubtedly preventing large numbers of murders.
Selleck might have said that Scotland and Ireland, countries with tough gun laws, have higher murder rates than the United States. Or that Switzerland, with a per-capita gun ownership higher than ours, has a lower murder rate.
Or that studies show that a woman who resists her attacker with a gun stands a better chance of avoiding injury or death. Or that convicted felons, when polled, say they are less likely to attack an armed person or enter a house where a gun is present. Or that Rosie O’Donnell does commercials for K-Mart, where one can purchase a rifle.
A piece of work, emotional liberals. – Capitalist Magazine
The NRA has been attacked for years for standing up to the Federal Government and making sure our Second Amendment rights are protected. There is no greater cause by the left than the one to take our Gun Rights away. The progressives know that as long as we keep in bare arms they can not control our lives like they want. Over the last four decades they have slowly started to disarm us, but with the election of Donald J. Trump, their efforts have failed. President Trump spoke at the National NRA Convention in Dallas, Texas this week. It’s nice to see someone in high office standing up for the rights given to us by God.
