Kneeling NFL Team Offers Blue Lives Matter Big Partnership – Get Legendary Rejection Instead

Published

on

I’ve followed Blue Lives Matter for quite some time now. The pro-police officer group is a great source of information and very true to the cause of supporting police officers and all they do. In fact, their site is one of my daily haunts for news these days. I would imagine having them support a sports team or a group is a big deal and carries a lot of weight with their respective fans. These are individuals who stand between crime, the bad guys and the rest of us and put their lives on the line every day without hesitation. I have the highest respect for police officers and for the group Blue Lives Matter.

They were just recently asked to join with the New York Jets in a partnership within the National Football League. They decided on Saturday to turn down that offer and their founder was quick to defend the pro-police officer group. Joe Imperatrice was the one who declined the team’s offer this week. He said that the National Football League does not respect police officers.

This incident played out as preseason protests continue to occur as players kneel in defiance of the league’s mandate that they stand for the National Anthem. The controversy is still raging and many fans are saying they will just walk away from the National Football League this year if it is not stopped. For ESPN’s part, they have decided not to air the National Anthem before games that they broadcast.

Imperatrice appeared Saturday on “Cavuto Live” on Fox News. He stated that he takes issue with associating his organization with the Jets. He related to Neil Cavuto just how touching it had been to see the son of fallen NYPD Det. Joseph Lemm saluting his father’s casket that had an American flag draped over it. “That’s why we stand,” he said. “We’re gonna stand because Joe can’t anymore.” When I hear that, I get choked up as well.

Imperatrice has an issue with a specific player on the New York Jets team… running back Isaiah Crowell. Crowell posted an image to Instagram in 2016 that depicted a police officer’s throat being slashed. The caption read: “Mood: They give polices all types of weapons and they continuously choose to kill us…#Weak.” That image has since been deleted but just about everyone saw it and frankly, I’ve never been able to forget it. It was a violent, hateful message to police officers and went beyond the pale.

Bulak attempted to smooth things over by pointing out that no Jets player has knelt during the National Anthem. “I appreciate you sharing your opinion and although I can’t comment too much on it what I will say is the Jets have never had a player protest our anthem. The Jets have always been supportive of our police, firefighters, EMTs, etc. and will continue to do so,” he wrote, including a flyer for the team’s First Responders Night.

During his interview with Cavuto, Imperatrice said that players such as Crowell should be held accountable for their actions by their respective teams. And they should be. That’s the way it used to be.

“These family members that lose their loved ones can’t hit the rewind button. … [Crowell] was able to press rewind,” he said. Death has no do-overs… something police officers are painfully aware of. Their families are too.

“With the NFL season right around the corner, there is no better time to open up a conversation about how your business/organization can benefit from a partnership with the New York Jets,” stated an email from the Jets’ Anthony Bulak to Blue Lives Matter founder Joe Imperatrice. But the NFL is just too toxic for the group these days and they aren’t alone in that sentiment.

According to the New York Post, emails that were shared with the media outlet that transpired between Imperatrice and the Jets show that Imperatrice told a team official that he felt it wasn’t the right time for a partnership. “Once again I do appreciate the offer but revenue we have could better be spent on the families of officers killed in the line of duty protecting the ignorance of these individuals rather than contributing to their paycheck.” That’s very blunt and to the point. I can’t say that I blame him in the least either.

Imperatrice also chimed in on the news that ESPN will not join coverage of “Monday Night Football” games until after the National Anthem is played which I brought up previously. “That’s like saying when a little child goes and does something bad and takes a candy bar, the parent [pays for it] instead slapping their wrist and saying ‘don’t do it.'” Again… ouch. But I certainly agree.

In the end, I totally understand Imperatrice and Blue Lives Matter turning down the partnership request. Until the NFL cleans up their act and actually imposes solid requirements of proper behavior on their players and severely disciplines those that step out of line, especially in regards to police officers, I doubt that Blue Lives Matter will ever partner with any of their teams.

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.

“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.

BREAKING: Hundreds Of Raging Migrants Just Stormed US Border Checkpoint (VIDEOS)

Published

(FOX NEWS) Images and videos posted on social media Sunday afternoon appeared to show hundreds of migrants from the leading Central American caravan rushing the border at the point of entry in San Ysidro, Calif., in a major test for both U.S. border authorities and Mexican officials.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials have suspended northbound and southbound vehicle and pedestrian crossings at the San Ysidro port of entry, officials told Fox News. It was not immediately clear if any members of the caravan made it past the point of entry into the United States.

Fox News had confirmed early Sunday through an organizer for Pueblo Sin Fronteras, the group helping organize the leading Central American migrant caravan, that members of the caravan were planning to attempt to cross the point of entry at San Ysidro, Calif., on Sunday afternoon.

In anticipation of the planned effort, U.S. border officials said they had deployed additional personnel to the San Ysidro port of entry on Sunday, including Air and Marine agents.

The developments come as Mexico’s incoming government denied reports Saturday that it had struck a deal with the White House to keep asylum-seekers in the country while their claims move through U.S. immigration courts. President Trump, for his part, again threatened to close the entire southern border if no deal could be reached between the two counties.

On Saturday, the first episode of caravan-related violence directed at U.S. authorities was reported by U.S. Border Patrol in Arizona, as a 31-year-old Honduran man who apparently split off from the caravan threw rocks at agents and a helicopter after setting a tree on fire.

The prospective deal between the U.S. and Mexico was seen as a way to dissuade thousands of Central American migrants from seeking asylum in the U.S., a process that can take years. The legal bar for claiming asylum is high and generally requires applicants to show a specific risk of persecution based on factors such as race, nationality, politics or religion.

Trump administration officials have characterized the vast majority of asylum claims as fraudulent or legally insufficient, and have taken steps to reduce the backlog of asylum claims that they say are often used by migrants to gain entry into the U.S. and disappear into the country as their claims are adjudicated.

“There is no agreement of any sort between the incoming Mexican government and the U.S. government,” future Interior Minister Olga Sanchez said in a statement.

Hours earlier, The Washington Post quoted her as saying that the incoming administration of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador had agreed to allow migrants to stay in Mexico as a “short-term solution” while the U.S. considered their applications for asylum. Lopez Obrador will take office on Dec. 1.

The Washington Post reported Saturday that the Trump administration has won support from the Mexican president-elect’s team for a plan dubbed “Remain in Mexico.”

The newspaper also quoted Sanchez as saying: “For now, we have agreed to this policy of Remain in Mexico.” Sanchez did not explain in the statement why The Washington Post had quoted her as saying there had been an agreement.

Early Sunday, Trump wrote on Twitter that it would be “very SMART” for Mexico to “stop the Caravans long before they get to our Southern Border” to avoid future logistics challenges at the border.

There were signs last week that the Mexican government has received that message. Mexican immigration agents on Wednesday detained almost all of the Central American migrants on a fourth caravan that recently entered Mexico seeking to reach the U.S., with Mexico’s National Immigration Institute saying 213 migrants were detained and taken to a processing center. Those found to lack proper documents may face repatriation to their home countries.

Other administration officials sounded notes of optimism despite the apparent confusion on how to handle the migrants.

“President Trump has developed a strong relationship with the incoming [Lopez] Obrador administration, and we look forward to working with them on a wide range of issues,” White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said over the weekend.

Approximately 5,000 Central American migrants have arrived in recent days to Tijuana, just south of California, after making their way through Mexico via caravan. But agents at the San Diego port of entry process fewer than 100 claims per day.

On Friday, the mayor of Tijuana declared a humanitarian crisis in his border city of 1.6 million people, saying he was asking the United Nations for aid to deal with the approximately 5,000 Central American migrants, most of whom were camped out inside a sports complex.

The comments by Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum came as city officials and volunteers worked together to assist the 4,976 men, women and children who had arrived after more than a month on the road.

Hundreds of Tijuana residents have protested their arrival, complaining that recent caravans forced their way into Mexico from Guatemala.

Trump threatened Thursday, and again on Saturday, to shut down the border crossing entirely if his administration determines that Mexico has lost “control” of the situation in Tijuana.

Stephanie Leutert, director of the Mexico Security Initiative at the University of Texas at Austin, described the Remain in Mexico plan as a strategy to take away the ability of migrants to live and work in the U.S. while cases are processed.

“The hope is that asylum seekers will not want to live in [Mexico] for months/years and won’t come,” Leutert wrote on Twitter.

She added: “The big question is why would Mexico agree to this? … Mexico has its own migratory enforcement interests and the various caravans have been a huge headache.”

U.S. officials have said for months that they were working with Mexico on possible proposals. One variation, called “Safe Third,” would have denied asylum claims on the grounds that asylum seekers had found haven in Mexico. President Enrique Pena Nieto offered thousands of Central Americans asylum on Oct. 26 if they agreed to remain in southern Mexico. Close to 3,000 migrants took Mexico up on the offer.

Sanchez said Saturday that the next government does not plan for Mexico to become a “Safe Third” country.

Julieta Vences, a congresswoman with Lopez Obrador’s Morena party who is also president of Mexico’s congressional migrant affairs commission, told the AP that incoming Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard has been discussing with U.S. officials how to handle a deluge of asylum claims at the border.

“They’re going to have to open the borders (for the migrants) to put in the request,” Vences said. “They will also give us dates, on what terms they will receive the (asylum) requests and in the case that they are not beneficiaries of this status, they will have to return here,” Vences said.

She said Mexico needs to examine how to accommodate the migrants without angering locals.
