Massive Outrage Should Have Shut Nike Up But New Announcement Is Beyond Belief!

Published

on

As football season begins in earnest, Miami Dolphins teammates Kenny Stills and Albert Watson kept the controversy alive, choosing again to kneel during the national anthem on the NFL’s opening Sunday.  Social justice warrior and NFL pariah Colin Kaepernick made sure to extend his offer of thanks to them via social media, referring to the due as “brothers” tweeting – “My Brothers (Stills) and (Watson) continue to show their unwavering strength by fighting for the oppressed. They have not backed down, even when attacked and intimidated. … Love is at the root of our resistance.”

This directly follows the controversial rollout of Nike’s new ad campaign featuring Kaepernick himself featuring the caption – “Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything.” Many have remarked on the complete hypocrisy of the Kaepernick claiming to be taking a knee for injustice and oppression for a company with a well-documented history of issues of using child labor and sweatshops in third world nations dating back to the 1970s while Kaepernick himself collects a multi-million dollar check, far more than he ever would have made in the mid-level NFL franchise.

Nike stocks tanked the weekend directly following the announcement, yet now curiously despite the rash of memes flooding Facebook and other social media platforms calling for various Nike apparel and shoes to be burned or otherwise destroyed, and hatred spewed on those who dare suggest something as innocuous as actually donating used Nike items to such causes as homeless veterans, Nike sales have actually soared 31%. It is an incredible increase considering the hatred being spewed across the web.

Lifezette reports – “Digital commerce and research firm Edison Trends, which tracks sales growth for large e-commerce companies like Nike, indicated that Nike sales are dramatically higher now than during the same quarterback in 2017.

As Kaepernick appears to gain popularity for his stance against oppression by kneeling during the playing of the national anthem before NFL games, the internet has exploded with counteroffensives against the billion-dollar footwear and sportswear giant — ever since the multimillion-dollar deal was struck with the alum of the University of Nevada in Reno and currently unemployed quarterback.

Detractors of the athlete have shunned his purported disrespect for the U.S. military, the anthem, and the American flag during his time in a 49ers uniform.

And with Nike’s hitting an already contentious subject below the belt in its newest ad, fans are calling for an exodus of apparel, shoes and other goods produced by Nike.”

President Donald Trump himself weighed in again regarding the Kaepernick controversy and the continued NFL protests, tweeting – “Just like the NFL, whose ratings have gone WAY DOWN, Nike is getting absolutely killed with anger and boycotts. I wonder if they had any idea that it would be this way? As far as the NFL is concerned, I just find it hard to watch, and always will, until they stand for the FLAG!”

However, President Trump also acknowledged that in a free country, Nike has the right to choose to feature whomever they like in their ad campaign, tweeting in a consecutive tweet –

“As much as I disagree with the Colin Kaepernick endorsement, in another way — I mean, I wouldn’t have done it. In another way, it is what this country is all about, that you have certain freedoms to do things that other people think you shouldn’t do, but I personally am on a different side of it.”

President Trump also revealed in an interview that Nike is actually a tenant of his. Nike’s five-floor Niketown store is located in Trump’s property on 57th Street in New York City.

Lifezette reports “former NBA great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar defended Kaepernick, calling on more players to debate whether it’s OK to discuss racial injustices and systematic hatred in professional sports.

Social media users have exploded with commentary since the ad aired, with many people banding behind Kaepernick, while others have taken videos of themselves burning Nike merchandise to protest the money being paid to the former quarterback.

Many believe Nike is shelling out cash to promote anti-oppression while oppressing their own overseas staff through unethical workplace conditions and ridiculously low pay.

A small Missouri college has already removed Nike goods from use by their sports teams as Nike shares tumbled 3 percent late last week.

Jerry C. Davis, president of College of the Ozarks, said in a statement this past Wednesday that Nike’s selection of the controversial Kaepernick was “promoting an attitude of division and disrespect toward America.”

Davis also said, “If Nike is ashamed of America, we are ashamed of them.”

Investors fear the move will further degrade the stock in an already competitive sportswear and shoe space.

As an unsigned free agent, Kaepernick still has no offers to play for any NFL franchise to date.”

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!

Published

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
