Simone Biles Speaks Out After Interim USA Gymnastics President Blasts Nike and Kaepernick

Published

on

Political correctness is a severe cancer in this world. I’m so tired of people apologize for something that needs no apology. If you are going to speak out about something…don’t apologize.

Don’t worry Simone Biles, it’s not like people are entitled to their opinion or that are shills for Big Corporations like dictating how everyone should think.

Dear Simone, stick to being a gymnast. Go on and keep making your money from a fascist company.

Trending: James Comey Just Caught In Major New Scandal – Hillary Would Be Proud!

USA Gymnastics has found itself mired in perpetual controversy in recent years

The snowball began rolling in earnest when the horrific allegations of sexual abuse against team doctor Larry Nassar surfaced in 2015.

Obviously, Nassar’s actions are unforgivable and he deserves every last second of what is effectively a life sentence in prison.

After taking care of Nassar, the hounds of justice set their sights on USA Gymnastics itself. Any organization that could have been so unaware of the horrors taking place right under its nose deserve the accompanying scrutiny.

Former USA Gymnastics president Steve Penny was forced to resign by the USOC after his horrible mishandling of the Nassar scandal.

His replacement, Kerry Perry, also ended up being forced to resign after her leadership was questioned by USOC.

Now, Perry’s replacement, Mary Bono, has also found herself in controversy, though nothing as serious as the last two.

Bono, a former Republican congresswoman in California, was barely on the job when a month-old tweet of hers resurfaced.

“Playing in a charity golf tournament raising for our nation’s Special Forces operators and their families. Unfortunately, had these shoes in my bad. Luckily I had a marker in my bag too,” Bono said in a since-deleted tweet.

The accompanying picture showed her using a black marker to hide the Nike logo on a shoe.

Regardless of how you feel about Nike’s divisive ad featuring Colin Kaepernick, Bono is more than entitled to her opinion. Yes, she put Nike, and by extension Kaepernick, on blast for the latter’s rhetoric. But she’s hardly exclusive in her feelings. Bono is just one of many Americans who feel that Kaepernick’s anthem protests were disrespectful to the flag, the military and the police.

While Bono is obviously allowed to voice her opinion, she unfortunately also drew the ire of her organization’s premiere athlete, Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles.

“Don’t worry, it’s not like we needed a smarter usa gymnastics president or any sponsors or anything,” Biles wrote in a blistering response tweet prefaced by a “mouth drop.”

While USA Gymnastics hasn’t had a team sponsor since late 2017, Biles is personally sponsored by Nike, according to ESPN.

Perhaps realizing that Biles is the one gymnast she cannot afford to alienate, Bono promptly deleted the tweet and issued an apology.

“I regret the post and respect everyone’s views & fundamental right to express them. This doesn’t reflect how I will approach my position @USAGym I will do everything I can to help build, w/ the community, an open, safe & positive environment,” Bono said in her apology tweet.

It would be nice to think that this will be the final controversy USA Gymnastics will have to deal with for a while. But if recent history is any indication, that seems almost impossible.

REPORT: Mueller’s Investigation Is Over… NO COLLUSION

Published

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

It is being reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into President Trump and his 2016 presidential campaign is over, or is at least in its final stages.

In an exclusive report, One American News Network claims the Mueller investigation has “thoroughly investigated all known possible individuals” and has been unable to make a connection between officials on the Trump campaign team, WikiLeaks officials, or Russian sources.

From their report:

Mueller’s investigators have been focused on determining whether there was direct or indirect communications with WikiLeaks and Russian sources loosely associated with the 2016 Trump campaign.

Specifically, Mueller’s team has been aggressively drilling down to determine if there was any advance knowledge of anyone remotely associated with the Trump campaign, and advanced notice of the leaked DNC documents and hacked John Podesta’s email.

Mueller”s investigation team has thoroughly investigated all known possible individuals with potential advanced knowledge of the leaked documents. A number of individuals have been interrogated, some multiple times to date. Documents in at least the hundreds of thousands have been reviewed. Computer equipment has been reviewed by top electronic forensic teams, and a long list of individuals have been subpoenaed and interrogated.

Per the report, Steve Bannon, Dr. Jerome Corsi, Tandy Credico, Theodore “Ted” Roosevelt Malloch, Sam Nunsberg, and Roger Stone have all been subpoenaed and interrogated for information about potential advanced knowledge of the WikiLeaks release of private emails of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta.

And:

The implication is that Roger Stone knew well in advance that the Podesta emails were hacked and would be released.

There is no credible evidence indicating that Roger Stone or any other individuals loosely associated to the Trump 2016 campaign had any advance knowledge of the WikiLeak, DNC and Podesta emails.

The investigation is wrapping up regarding Roger Stone’s possible collusion with no findings.

Check it out:

Here’s more on Jerome Corsi’s interaction with the Mueller investigation, via the Wall Street Journal:

Corsi said that he had turned over his computers and phone records to investigators in an effort to cooperate and demonstrate that he had nothing to hide. Mr. Corsi was also questioned by investigators about his interactions with other conservative activists and the website WikiLeaks before a grand jury, The Wall Street Journal previously reported.

“We had nothing to hide,” Mr. Corsi said on YouTube about his cooperation with the special counsel investigation.

And:

During the 2016 campaign, Mr. Corsi was also a part of a small, informal network of researchers and activists on the margins of Republican politics who were looking for incriminating information about Hillary Clinton, Mr. Trump’s Democratic rival. The Journal has previously reported that the special counsel is looking at whether Mr. Corsi or any other activists had advance knowledge of email hacks and leaks that U.S. intelligence agencies have said were part of a Russian campaign to help Mr. Trump win.

Prosecutors have been scrutinizing messages sent between Mr. Corsi and Roger Stone, a Trump confidant, in which they discussed material that would eventually be released by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, according to a person familiar with the matter. In his YouTube broadcast, Mr. Corsi asserted that he had “figured out” that Mr. Assange had emails from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

Some outlets report the Mueller investigation could make more indictments as early as today regarding the Russia probe, but it is not believe they are related to collusion.

Mueller reportedly plans to issue new indictments in the Russia investigation TODAY

Published

The special counsel Robert Mueller is expected to issue new indictments as part of the Russia investigation as soon as Tuesday, CBS reported, citing multiple sources with knowledge of the probe.

Meanwhile, acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker plans to consult with Department of Justice ethics officials about whether he should recuse himself from the investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, a department representative said Monday.

Since Mueller took over the investigation in May 2017, his team has charged four Americans once affiliated with Trump’s campaign or administration, 13 Russian nationals, 12 Russian intelligence officers, three Russian companies, and three other people.

They include Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman, George Papadopoulos, a former Trump campaign adviser, and Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser.

Talks between Manafort and Mueller’s team have reportedly stalled.

November and December are widely expected to be busy months for Mueller, following a quiet period during which prosecutors, following DOJ guidelines, avoided taking any actions that could be seen as influencing the outcome of the midterm elections.

For months, Mueller has been zeroing in on the longtime GOP strategist Roger Stone and his associates. At the center of Mueller’s focus is whether Stone or any other Trump associates had advance knowledge that Russia had stolen batches of emails from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign and disseminated them via the pro-transparency group WikiLeaks, founded by Julian Assange.

In addition to Stone, Mueller has also focused on the far-right commentator Jerome Corsi, who told NBC News on Monday that Mueller’s team told him he would be indicted.

“I don’t recall ever meeting Julian Assange or getting information from anyone about what he had including the Podesta emails,” Corsi said Monday, referring to John Podesta, the Clinton campaign manager. “But they have all your emails and phone records … They’re very good at the perjury trap.” Continue Reading…
