Patriotic College Drops Bombshell On Nike In Ruthless Revenge For Kaepernick Campaign

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has become a symbolic leader of a #BlackLivesMatter movement aimed at protesting the military-led performances of the national anthem before games in a show of opposition against police brutality — but, more recently, against President Trump. As a result, Kaepernick and his followers on the field have helped fuel a massive loss of viewership for NFL games.

And that’s why it struck so many Americans as odd when Nike chose to make the football player-turned-activist into the face of their 30th-anniversary campaign.

Their decision cost them billions almost immediately as their shares plummeted. Nike fans across the nation started burning their Nike apparel, angered that a sportswear company would choose to take such a divisive political stance instead of simply focusing on selling quality products.

Trump denounced Nike’s move as an awful business decision and said, “it’s a terrible message they’re sending.”

Now a Missouri college is taking their own stand against Nike and Kaepernick.

According to Yahoo, the College of the Ozarks in Branson, Missouri is dropping its affiliation with Nike for its athletic wear.

The president of the private Christian school, Jerry Davis, announced, “In their new ad campaign, we believe Nike executives are promoting an attitude of division and disrespect toward America.”

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

“We also believe that those who know what sacrifice is all about are more likely to be wearing a military uniform than an athletic uniform,” Davis said.

Another school official, Marci Linson, added, “Nike is free to campaign as it sees fit, as the college is free, and honor-bound by its mission and goals, to ensure that it respects our country and those who truly served and sacrificed.”

The College of the Ozarks has made sacrifices in the name of patriotism in the recent past. It required its athletes to stand in respect for the national anthem, despite that move triggering the NAIA to move its planned Division II men’s basketball postseason tournament elsewhere, Yahoo reported.

“I’d rather forfeit a game than forfeit our honor,” Davis said at the time.

In addition to taking that stance, the College of the Ozarks is a truly a one-of-a-kind school.

A quote by Davis on the front page of its website declares that “C of O is unique among higher education institutions in America: no tuition is charged, all students work on campus, debt is openly discouraged, and no federal, state or private loans are made.”

Will other schools follow the College of the Ozarks’ lead regarding Nike?

BREAKING: Justice Department Preparing To PROSECUTE Assange – About To Get UGLY

Published

* By

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

It is being reported that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange could be prosecuted by the United States Justice Department due to his influence and the influence of WikiLeaks in releasing classified or otherwise pertinent national security information.

According to the Wall Street Journal, a potential trial would happen in an American courtroom, although the potential charges brought against Assange were not specified.

From the Daily Caller:

The 47-year-old Australian national is living under asylum in the Ecuadorean embassy in London.

The Trump DOJ has considered charging Assange with crimes related to Wikileaks’ disclosures of classified cables stolen by ex-Army Pvt. Chelsea Manning. Assange could also face charges related to the release of emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

Wikileaks published the pilfered documents before the 2016 presidential election. Special counsel Robert Mueller charged 12 Russian intelligence agents with hacking the documents and releasing them through Wikileaks.

Some people suspected Assange received the stolen information from Russian sources, though he denied the claim.

Reuters reports the sealed indictment against Assange may have been released accidentally:

The document, which prosecutors say was filed by mistake, asks a judge to seal documents in a criminal case unrelated to Assange, and carries markings indicating it was originally filed in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Virginia in August.

A source familiar with the matter said the document was initially sealed but unsealed this week for reasons that are unclear at the moment.

And:

U.S. officials had no comment on the disclosure in the document about a sealed indictment of Assange, the charges facing whom are unclear.

The document is part of an unrelated criminal case involving a 29-year-old man charged with enticing a 15-year-old girl. In that case, the judge wrote in a detention memo that the defendant, Seitu Sulayman Kokayi, “has had a substantial interest in terrorist acts.”

“The court filing was made in error. That was not the intended name for this filing,” said Joshua Stueve, the prosecutors’ office spokesman.

Reuters added that anything “short of sealing will not adequately protect the needs of law enforcement at this time because, due to the sophistication of the defendant, and the publicity surrounding the case, no other procedure is likely to keep confidential the fact that Assange has been charged,” the document said.

And, per the report: “The complaint, supporting affidavit, and arrest warrant, as well as this motion and the proposed order, would need to remain sealed until Assange is arrested in connection with the charges in the criminal complaint and can therefore no longer evade or avoid arrest and extradition in this matter.”

Here’s even more on the case, via the Wall Street Journal:

An indictment from special counsel Robert Mueller that portrayed WikiLeaks as a tool of Russian intelligence for releasing thousands of hacked Democratic emails during the 2016 presidential campaign has made it more difficult for Mr. Assange to mount a defense as a journalist. Public opinion of Mr. Assange in the U.S. has dropped since the campaign.

Prosecutors have considered publicly indicting Mr. Assange to try to trigger his removal from the embassy, the people said. A detailed explanation of the evidence against Mr. Assange could give Ecuadorean authorities a reason to turn him over, they said.

The exact charges the Justice Department might pursue remain unclear, but they may involve the Espionage Act, which criminalizes the disclosure of national defense-related information.

Angry Citizens Don’t Want Invader Caravan In Their Town – Serve Them Texas Sized Justice!

Published

* By

The scouting party for the first migrant caravan has now arrived at the US-Mexican border. They are camped out on the beach on the Mexican side. Somewhere between 750 and 900 illegal aliens are now awaiting the larger caravan before pushing for entry into the US. The Mexican government has opened a temporary shelter for them.

This group is in Playas de Tijuana, which is an upscale neighborhood. The residents there don’t want them there and flatly told them to get out. The angry residents sang the Mexican national anthem and waved flags. They got into fights with the migrants as well. The police pretty much just watched. But they are cool with the invaders crossing into the US.

Sarah Palin has more on this story:

Over the last week, hundreds of members of the migrant caravan arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border, forming an encampment on the beach on the Mexican side of the border. These members joined the several hundred which were already there—about 750 in total— waiting for the remainder of the group before progressing any further.

In an effort to help, the Mexican government opened a temporary shelter for the caravan so they would not have to stay on the beach. Because the new housing option could only fit about 360 migrants on thin mattresses in an indoor basketball court, the caravan refused to leave their post on the beach. The shelters also reportedly had a curfew and some of the migrants at the beach referred to the shelters as “jails.”

Desert Sun reports a fight then broke out between the migrants and a group of 300 local residents eager to see the migrants leave their community.

The local residents were from Playas de Tijuana, an upscale neighborhood, who confronted the migrants and demanded they leave; “By 8:30 p.m., hundreds of residents and migrants had congregated by the beach, with local residents demanding the immigrants leave the public space at the beach,” Desert Sun reports.

“This is not an appropriate place for them,” one local resident said, per the report. “There are appropriate places for them.”

And:

During a confrontation that lasted more than three hours, area residents sang the Mexican national anthem and waved Mexican flags. They chanted “Mexico! Mexico!” each time a bus transporting migrants left the beach for the temporary shelter. Mostly women and children went to the shelters, while young men from the caravan said they were determined to stay together at the beach and await the estimated 2,000 more caravan members on their way to Tijuana.

Pushing, shoving, kicking and a couple of blows broke out between masses of residents and migrants, illuminated by the crescent moon and mobile light towers, set up by authorities on the beach on the U.S. side of the border. More than three dozen municipal and federal police watched, separating people and trying to prevent the situation from devolving into fistfights and chaos.

After midnight, residents assaulted journalists, injuring at least three, according to reporters on the scene.

Continued:

The conflict was foreshadowed earlier in the day at the beach. By the afternoon, two large groups of migrants – a total of about 750 people – had arrived in Tijuana. The city’s migrant shelters had limited space when the caravan arrived. A large portion of the migrants said they didn’t want to be separated, opting instead to sleep at the beach.

On Wednesday evening, city and state officials announced they were opening a temporary shelter at the Benito Juarez sports complex, where 360 migrants could sleep on thin mattresses in an indoor basketball court. They started offering buses from the beach to the shelter around 6 p.m.

By Thursday, the migrants had left the beach and joined hundreds of caravan members at a temporary shelter at the Benito Juarez sports complex. The complex has room for 3,000 people to sleep on thin mattresses on the floor of an indoor basketball court, in large, communal tents and in individual camping tents, according to a local official.

After the incident, Francisco Rueda Gómez, Baja California secretary-general, said: “The message to the migrant population is very clear. We are providing them with humanitarian support, health care, and food, however the need to take into consideration the rules of the shelters so they can coexist in harmony with the local population.”
