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.

Libs Heads Explode Over What Trump ‘Dared’ To Say To Hurricane Victim – LOVE IT!

Published

on

Now I think we can all collectively say we have now heard everything from the left.

The left wing in this country is trying to take President Trump to task over a joke. Yes, folks, a harmless joke in a situation where it was much needed.

Left wing sites are now reporting that while President Trump was surveying the storm ravaged area in North Carolina he questioned a man if the boat that had been shipwrecked behind his house was his, according to a White House pool report.

“At least you got a nice boat out of the deal,” Trump stated when the man responded that the once luxurious boat was not his. Trump then continued to say that he thought the boat was “incredible” and detailed that under the law it might now belong to the owners of the home.

So otherwise he was trying to make like out of a dire situation in order to lift the spirits of the home’s owner. Something that is wonderful to do onto itself since that person had lost everything.

Here is more on this via The Political Voice:

President Trump reportedly told a victim of Hurricane Florence on Wednesday that he “got a nice boat out of the deal”about a large yacht that had crashed ashore during the harrowing storm.

While strolling an area in North Carolina devastated by the storm, Trump questioned a man if the boat that had been shipwrecked behind his house was his, according to a White House pool report.

“At least you got a nice boat out of the deal,” Trump stated when the man responded that the once luxurious boat was not his.

Trump continued to say that he thought the boat was “incredible” and detailed that under the law it might now belong to the owners of the home.

Trump made the remarks while in New Bern, N.C, a town that was struck by Florence when it made the first landfall late last week.

Trump earlier this Wednesday informed local officials and residents in the Carolinas that his administration will stand by recovery efforts “100 percent.”

“We will be there 100 percent, and all of the folks from the federal government that are around the table, they’re confirming it,” he said during a briefing at the Marine Corps Air Station in Cherry Point, N.C. “That’s why we started early, and we’ll be here late.”

Trump arrived in New Bern in the early afternoon Wednesday before heading to South Carolina to look over the areas of the state affected by the storm.

Here’s how Americans reacted:

Isn’t it about time we all take a deep breath and start to see that sometimes we just need a sense of humor in order to get by? Those of us on the right have a sense of humor, if not we wouldn’t have been able to survive 8 long years of the community organizer Barack Hussein Obama as our president. But the left just can’t seem to get over the fact that Hillary Clinton lost the election to Donald Trump. So they try day after to do take out our president.

Here is a reminder from Business Insider of how a real American loving President should react under a crisis such as a hurricane:

“President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump announced on Wednesday a personal donation of $1 million to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. The money will go to twelve organizations, including the Red Cross, Salvation Army, and the ASPCA.

Hurricane Harvey, which ripped through Houston and parts of the Texas coastline, covered much of the city in water, destroying homes and displacing thousands of residents.

The Trumps visited Texas during the immediate aftermath of the storm, where they met with officials and oversaw relief work conducted by both federal agencies and volunteer groups.

The White House notes that many of the organizations the Trumps donated to were recommended by members of the White House press corps.

Here’s where the money is going:
Red Cross — $300,000
Salvation Army — $300,000
Reach Out America — $100,000
Samaritan’s Purse — $100,000
ASPCA — $25,000
Catholic Charities — $25,000
Direct Relief — $25,000
Habitat for Humanity — $25,000
Houston Humane Society — $25,000
Operation Blessing — $25,000
Portlight Inclusive Disaster Strategies — $25,000
Team Rubicon — $25,0000

Trump landed in hot water during the 2016 campaign when reporters dug into his claims that he donated $1 million to the fundraiser he held for veterans in lieu of attending a Republican debate that year. Reporters had a hard time confirming how much money has actually been distributed to veterans groups.”

Kavanaugh’s Accuser About To Cash In BIG TIME And Hasn’t Even Testified!

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by DownTrend

Christine Blasey Ford has made some serious allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh that she can neither back up or or is even willing to testify about. The democrats have used these unfounded unprovable allegations in a attempt to derail Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the high court, because they don’t have the votes to stop him. As if this story wasn’t already dumb enough, some rando has started a GoFundMe campaign and you just know liberals will pour money into this ridiculous thing.

Ford claims that Kavanaugh and a friend sexually assaulted her at a party in the 1980’s. She doesn’t know when this supposedly happened or where or how she even ended up at the party. They only witness to this alleged crime says it never happened and there are tons of inconsistencies with this vague story. She is also a registered democrat and liberal activist with a bone to pick with Kavanaugh’s family.

Ford was invited to testify before the the Senate Judiciary committee to tell her story, but she has declined. She also claims that she is now getting death threats and has had to go underground for the safety or her family.

That brings us to this silly GoFundMe campaign:

Due to death threats, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford (who uses “Dr. Blasey” professionally) and her family have had to leave their residence and arrange for private security. Let’s create a fund to cover her security expenses, to do just a bit to make it easier for women in her position to come forward despite great risks. If we raise more than Dr. Blasey needs, extra funds will go to women’s organizations and/or into an account to cover similar costs incurred in comparable situations.

The person who started this campaign doesn’t even know Ford, but felt the need to do something:

I do not know Dr. Blasey personally but will contact her via her former high school, Holton Arms, to inform her of this fundraising appeal and to make arrangements to transfer funds to Dr. Blasey.

I am a professor of law at Georgetown University who has raised money formally and informally for other causes over the years. My reason for starting this fundraiser is to make concrete the power of collective action in providing security, and therefore support, for Dr. Blasey’s willingness to contribute to a thorough, fair vetting of a nominee for Supreme Court Justice.

Fair vetting? Ford made an outrageous accusation on the eve of Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote and then refused to testify on these things she can’t provide any evidence of. That’s completely unfair and any law professor could attest to that.

Oh wait, it turns out the person who started this bullshit GoFundMe campaign really is a law professor at Georgetown Law. Here’s her bio on Women’s Media Center:

Heidi Li Feldman is Professor of Law at Georgetown University Law Center, with a courtesy appointment in the Philosophy Department at Georgetown University. She has written major articles on tort law and on legal ethics. Her scholarly expertise includes the U.S. civil justice system more generally. Currently, Dr. Feldman’s scholarship focuses on how and whether U.S. cities and states can protect civil rights and strengthen civil society. Read More
