NIKE Boycott Turns Into Raging INFERNO! Ex-fans Touching Products For Kaepernick Deal

Ex-Fans Burn Shoes, Vow to Never Buy Another Nike Product After Kaepernick Deal

Yesterday, Nike unveiled that the face of their ‘Just Do It’ campaign for its 30th anniversary was former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, now social justice warrior, Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick is best known for starting the kneeling protests of the national anthem during NFL games. Needless to say, this infuriated a lot of people and the call for a boycott of Nike is already underway.

Darren Rovell of ESPN was the first to report the choice of Kaepernick, who started the movement to kneel during the United States National Anthem to protest racial injustice in August of 2016.

Kaepernick wasted no time in posting the new ad. It reads, “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything. Just do it.” Kaepernick’s legal team that is comprised of Mark Geragos and Ben Meiselas cobbled the deal together just recently.

This isn’t the first time that Kaepernick has done business with Nike. Nike cut him a brand new deal for this particular campaign. I guess they value radical activism over patriotism… good to know. Evidently, other shoe companies expressed interest in Kaepernick and that played a part in the new agreement.

Nike does business with several NFL teams. This could be a very bad PR move for the company. It will certainly have a bunch of Americans who love their country and sports turning away from them in droves.

Kaepernick may have his followers and fans, but there are far more Americans who don’t approve of the whole kneeling during the National Anthem movement. Celebrities such as Jay-Z, Serena Williams, and Meek Mill are sure to promote this, but your average fan probably won’t be thrilled by it.

Nike is making it clear they feel it is worth it financially to align themselves with a perceived social justice warrior. They are more into fringe politics, celebrities and social activism than they are into America, the police, the military, and our first responders. Shame on them.

I’d say there is a very good chance that when the smoke settles here that Nike will be done as a company. That’s the breaks. Nike is intent on waging war on President Trump and America while paying a radical Black Lives Matter supporter millions of dollars to kneel on the field.

I don’t view Kaepernick as any kind of hero. Just the opposite. And I’m not alone by any means.

Kaepernick is thrilled with the new deal and the mountain of money he will make from it. I wonder if Nike will be thrilled as their sales plummet and their brand tanks? There will be consequences for this move and they probably won’t be pretty.

Bonus… as part of Kaepernick’s new deal with Nike, they’ll be putting out a new signature shoe and apparel line for him. They’ll also be making big contributions and donations to Colin’s Know Your Rights foundation. Looks like Nike is all in on Colin Kaepernick and Black Lives Matter.

Kaepernick signed a “star” contract that puts him on the same level as a “top end NFL player” worth million per year plus royalties. But he’s no ‘star’ in the eyes of millions of Americans. I can do without Nike and so can most of America.

Florida’s INTENSE Governor’s Race JUST CALLED – MAJOR Upset Underway Now

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

Andrew Gillum will have to rely on the courts if he has any chance to become Florida’s first black governor.

A recount of more than 8 million ballots that ended Thursday afternoon confirmed that Republican Ron DeSantis beat the Democratic Tallahassee mayor in the nationally watched race that galvanized progressives across the country.

The final tally, headed to certification next week, was 4,075,445 for DeSantis and 4,041,762 for Gillum.

The margin of victory was enough for DeSantis, a former congressman representing Jacksonville, to avoid a hand recount of questionable ballots set aside for further review. He had already assembled a transition team to prepare for his ascendance as Florida’s 46th governor.

But Gillum is not conceding. He and his supporters believe there is still a path to victory: lawsuits that could add more votes in support of him.

“A vote denied is justice denied — the State of Florida must count every legally cast vote,” Gillum said in a statement after the recount totals were released. “As today’s unofficial reports and recent court proceedings make clear, there are tens of thousands of votes that have yet to be counted. We plan to do all we can to ensure that every voice is heard in this process. Voters need to know that their decision to participate in this election, and every election, matters. It is not over until every legally casted vote is counted.”

The deadline for the recount was 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time Thursday but Palm Beach County, a Democratic stronghold, did not complete its recount. It was the only one of Florida’s 67 counties that failed to do so. A lawsuit filed by Democrats could find more votes for Gillum there, for example.

After Election Day, DeSantis, led Gillum by fewer than 34,000 votes or a margin of .409 percent. At the time, the race was one of three under a statewide mandated recount. Margins in the Senate and state’s agriculture commissioner were also under the half-percent margin needed to automatically trigger a machine recount.

After the recount, the margin barely changed.

Gillum, 39, had attracted a national following as he sought to make history.

Potential 2020 presidential candidates Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., campaigned for him and he was often featured on national news shows after he scored an unexpected win in the Democratic gubernatorial primary in August.

But he was continually dogged by ethical issues, including his acceptance of tickets to the hit Broadway show “Hamilton,” a lavish trip to Costa Rica with lobbyist pals, and a fundraiser underwritten by an undercover FBI agent.

The victory by DeSantis, 40, who is an ardent supporter of President Donald Trump, keeps the governor’s mansion in GOP hands, where it has been since 1999.

Melania Demands Donald To Fire His Top Man – Looks Like She’ll Get Her Way!

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

President Donald Trump’s chief of staff, John Kelly, may be out of his job soon as a result of a conflict with first lady Melania Trump and other people in the White House, seven sources have told NBC News.

Nick Ayers, Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff, is being considered for the job, among other candidates, three of the sources told NBC.

Two White House officials told NBC that Melania Trump had told the president earlier in 2018 that Kelly had repeatedly turned down requests to promote some of her aides, even as Kelly’s staff received promotions. Trump reportedly directed Kelly to approve the first lady’s requests after learning of the disputes.

Melania Trump’s spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, told CNBC in a text message that “Chief Kelly and the First Lady have never ‘clashed.'”

Multiple outlets also reported that Trump also planned to remove deputy national security advisor Mira Ricardel, who is a top staffer to national security advisor John Bolton.

In an unusually harsh statement Tuesday, the first lady’s spokeswoman said Ricardel “no longer deserves the honor of serving in this White House.”

The Wall Street Journal, citing a White House official, reported shortly after that statement that Ricardel had been fired and escorted from the White House. But another official told reporters the story was untrue, and that Ricardel still worked at the White House.

Asked to confirm or deny that Ricardel still worked at the White House, Grisham told CNBC: “I have no idea.”

Multiple outlets had reported Tuesday that Ricardel had clashed with the first lady’s staff during a trip to Africa last month, among other disputes. But Grisham had told CNBC shortly before noon ET that Ricardel was “still there to my knowledge” and appeared to deny the report that there had been a dispute.

Earlier Tuesday afternoon, Ricardel had attended a White House event, where President Donald Trump led a ceremony for the religious holiday Diwali.

NBC’s report followed a slew of news that Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen may be on her way out, too.

The secretary’s potential forthcoming departure was reported a week after the midterm elections and days after the forced resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

But multiple outlets reported recently that Trump was planning a staff shakeup that would lead to both Nielsen and Kelly being removed.

“The Secretary is honored to lead the men and women of DHS and is committed to implementing the President’s security-focused agenda to protect Americans from all threats and will continue to do so,” DHS press secretary Tyler Houlton said in a statement Tuesday.

Nielsen had served in the Trump administration under Kelly before being confirmed to the Cabinet-level position in December.

Trump had praised Nielsen over the summer after she defended the administration’s border security goals amid a roiling controversy surrounding then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ “zero tolerance” immigration policy. Continue Reading
