Thousands Sign Petition To Give LeBron James Big Government Position

He’s talking about Skittles. He’s your next candidate, right?

Published

Over ten thousand people have signed a petition to give Lebron James a new job in the government. When he’s not turning his back and switching teams every few years, then maybe he’ll have a new job in government as the new U.S. Secretary of Education. Except there are just a few things about it that will almost certainly prevent this from ever happening.

For starters, Lebron James is not college educated and that should be a requirement of the job. Second, 10,000 people isn’t a lot of people and it’s a drop in the ocean compared to the 325 million who live in America. And third, petitions don’t matter. Just because a handful of people want something to happen, that doesn’t mean anyone is obligated to make it happen. If anything, this is one big joke.

Warner Todd Huston wrote an article on it for Breitbart and brought up the idea that this might be an attack on Betsy DeVos, the current Secretary of Education. She may not have a clue on what she’s doing either, but that doesn’t mean we’d want Lebron James working in any part of the government. For all we know, he would flip-flop to another country like he does with NBA teams since he has no loyalty. To be fair, does anyone know what the Secretary of Education actually does? I was a teacher for nearly 15 years and can’t name a single thing that DeVos nor any other Secretary of Education has ever done for myself or any other educators. Trump can save a few bucks and close them down. Then Lebron has no chance of ruining it! See how that works!

Huston brought up another brilliant point – Lebron James mangles the English language. He’s about as literate as Al Sharpton. I’ve seen enough funny Al Sharpton videos to know the guy sounds like an illiterate and Lebron isn’t far off. Good thing he doesn’t need public speaking skills to become an NBA all-star. A conversation between those two would be like the next coming of the immaculate conception. How can anyone who signed that petition take this serious when Lebron James can barely speak a legible sentence? And they want him working in some sort of capacity that involves education and he’s not educated? Hmmm. No.

Huston wrote:
“Thousands have signed a petition to make NBA star LeBron James, the new U.S. Secretary of Education. This despite the fact that the three-time champion never went to college.

Thus far the petition has earned over ten thousand signatures, Fox News Cleveland reported.

The petition seems to be more an attack on current Secretary, Betsy DeVos, than it is an endorsement of James. The petition attacks DeVos as “a scandal-ridden Republican donor who shows an inexcusable dislike for public education, wants to gut protections for women and minorities, and has advocated for teachers to be armed in schools.”

Of course, DeVos may have a “dislike” for teachers unions, but not for “public education.”

On the other hand, the petition praises James as a “highly respected and extremely influential community advocate and activist who recently opened a state-of-the-art public school for at-risk children.”

Many left-wingers were thrilled when James announced that he would fund his “I Promise” school for at-risk kids in Akron, Ohio. However, news broke this week that, while James will fund roughly 25% of the school costs, taxpayers will be on the hook for at least eight million dollars for its operations.

But more to the point, LeBron James is famous for mangling the English language.

This is the same LeBron James who exclaimed that “I don’t think a lot of people was educated,” when asked about why voters in Ohio voted or Donald Trump.

He further mangled the language saying that “when it becomes vote time, people are just not educated on either the individual or what’s going on in the state of the world right now.”

He added, “And am I saying that the people of Ohio wasn’t educated? Am I saying that some of the other states that voted for him was uneducated?” Then closed saying, “I shouldn’t have gave my daughter that many damn Skittles.”

Major Network Announces They’re Refusing To Air Anthem Before NFL Games – BAD Idea

Fans want to be entertained with a great game but don’t want to be subjected to politics

With football season fast approaching the eternal debate over whether or not it is acceptable to sit or kneel during the national anthem is alive and well again. President Trump, sports commentators, athletes and coaches alike are chiming in and giving their two cents. Now, a major network announced that they are refusing to air the anthem altogether right before any and all National Football League games. Perhaps a very bad idea because the unintended consequence will be record low ratings. Those decisions and choices never end well.

100 Percent Fed Up reported,

“As if we need another reason NOT to watch NFL football, ESPN just gave us another one. ESPN just announced that they will not show the national anthem during “Monday Night Football” broadcasts this year, the company’s president said on Friday. Jimmy Pitaro addressed the controversy at ESPN’s annual football media day: “We generally have not broadcasted the anthem and I don’t think that will change this year,” he said. “Our plan going into this year is to not broadcast the anthem … again that could change. It’s unpredictable what could happen in the world but as of now, we’re not. We have communicated that back to the NFL.” ESPN had already been going the way of the mainstream media with their support of the left’s agenda so this is not a huge surprise. When Jemele Hill trashed President Trump over and over but ESPN finally gave her a slap on the wrist, you knew it was a full-on entity of the leftist media and no longer just a sports news network.

Go figure, The NFL and ESPN continue to shoot themselves in the foot by being so outspoken on politics. Fans want to be entertained with a great game but don’t want to be subjected to politics and anti-Americanism. What doesn’t the management get about what the fans want? Are they that out of touch or are they afraid of their players? Ratings have tanked and will tank even further this year after there has been no change in the pre-game anthem behavior of the spoiled brat multi-millionaire football players.

And so it goes…football fans across America will enjoy spending more time doing other things on the days they used to watch or attend a game. All we have to say to the NFL (Rodger Goodell we’re talking to you) is good luck paying those players the big bucks when you have empty stadiums and no viewers… Football legend Lou Holtz recently weighed in on the anthem controversy: Legendary football coach Lou Holtz just dropped a ton of common sense on the NFL’s national anthem debate after President Trump tweeted about it to say the NFL players should be punished for kneeling: Lou Holtz: “I have never attended a football game that did not have the national anthem before the game, it’s part of the sport.”

Pete Hegseth called out the NFL Commissioner on “caving” to the players by putting a hold on the new anthem policy that requires players on the field to stand for the anthem. He’s spot on! OUR PREVIOUS REPORT ON THE ANTHEM POLICY: The NFL players continue to dig their own grave to sink what was once a wildly popular sport that made millions for players. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot! Did team owners finally get the message from American football fans? The team is claiming that, “all options are still open”. Breaking news tells us that in a report from the “proper anthem conduct,” the Miami Dolphins players could be suspended for protesting the national anthem even though the team says all options are open… Miami Dolphins players who protest on the field during the national anthem reportedly could be suspended for up to four games under a team policy issued this week.

ESPN reports: The “Proper Anthem Conduct” section is just one sentence in a nine-page discipline document provided to The Associated Press by a person familiar with the policy who insisted on anonymity because the document is not public. It classifies anthem protests under a long list of “conduct detrimental to the club,” all of which could lead to a paid or unpaid suspension, a fine, or both. Though Titans coach Mike Vrabel said in May that the organization and team owner support players’ decisions in regards to conducting protests during the national anthem, the team wants to talk to Jurrell Casey about his plans to protest social injustice.

In a statement, the Dolphins confirmed they sent the NFL the document, without offering specifics on what plans it laid out. “The NFL required each team to submit their rules regarding the anthem before their players reported to training camp,” the team said. “We will address this issue once the season starts. All options are still open.””

Anthem kneeling has remained a controversial issue for some time. It all began in August of 2016 when San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick decided to start the protest. He and others argued it was protesting systematic oppression, inequality, and social injustice against African Americans in the United States. While some have supported the protests calling them politically urgent and patriotic, others have not. Those who disagree with them have called them disrespectful and unpatriotic to the military, police, and the American flag.

Other athletes from different sports have joined in from professions such as soccer, baseball, basketball, ice hockey, college, and high school. While political figures have weighed in as well. President Obama said that those kneeling were exercising their constitutional right and that he believed in their sincerity. While Supreme Court Justice Ruther Bader Ginsburg called it dumb and disrespectful. Representative Sheila Jackson Lee knelt on the floor of the House of Representatives and her colleague Representative Mark Pocan did the same exact thing the next day. Vice President Mike Pence left a game for the Indianapolis Colts after San Francisco 49ers players kneeled during the anthem.

Early this year in May the NFL commissioner, as well as the team owners, approved a new guideline and policy that requires all players in the NFL to stand during the anthem. If they choose not to then they have to remain in the locker room for the entire time and only come out for the performance. Now, it has been taken a step further and a network will not air when the national anthem is being played.

Loudmouth LaVar Ball Makes Nasty Announcement About Trump And His Supporters – BAD Move!

Apparently he forgot!

Published

President Trump is known to have detractors and those who wish him ill. It has almost become a competitive sport within the mainstream media as well as the athletic and entertainment industry. Which is why the comments of LaVar Ball, a former pro-National Football League, and National Basketball League player should not shock you one bit. But it should surely disgust you. Even if there are those who do not like the president, the least they can do is provide him basic respect and decency. However, all of that is missing in Ball’s recent comments.

Total Pro Sports reported,

“If there’s one person who knows all about the controversy surrounding the President, it’s LaVar Ball. The CEO of Big Baller Brand had an infamous run-in with the current President of the United States when his middle son got himself arrested for stealing in China. There just might be another run-in brewing. A few days ago, Trump tweeted that Don Lemon was the “Dumbest man on television” that made LeBron James look smart, which “was hard to do.” That brought about so much criticism in the days following, especially after the Los Angeles Lakers superstar had opened his new I Promise school. In a recent interview with TMZ, Ball outlined what some of the reasons were when asked whether Trump is racist.

“Do I think he’s racist? Yes, he’s racist. Everybody know that. Everybody knows that. That’s not a secret. It’s not a secret. If you’re bothering a lot of black folks, I’m going to say you’re racist. If you’re bothering a lot Hispanics, I’m going to say you’re racist. If you messing with everybody but whoever is not your kind, whoever is your kind you’re not messing with, I call you racist if you like that. That’s easy to spot out.”

Ball, a former athlete, is now a media personality and businessman with three sons who all play professional basketball. One for the Los Angeles Lakers, one who played on scholarship at UCLA, and one for the Los Angeles Ballers. He serves as the Chief Executive Officer of his sports apparel company known as Big Baller Brand while he simultaneously founded the Junior Basketball Association (JBA).

However, in the past few years Ball has made media headlines all over the world for his controversial and outrageous statements. He claimed that one of his son’s Lonzo is better than world-renowned basketball player Stephen Curry. At the same time, he also alleged that he could beat Michael Jordan in a one-on-one basketball game. Since then he has received praise and criticism, and his remarks have led to television appearances which have received major attention from high profile sports media outlets.

But it was his problems with President Trump that has been getting him into hot water. Ball’s son was one of the UCLA students who was detained for shoplifting in a high-end shopping center in Shanghai, China. The players were accused by police of shoplifting high-end Louis Vuitton sunglasses at a store in the mall. After President Trump and his administration made a plea to the Chinese government to release them from their charges they were set free.

President Trump took to social media to say that the students were headed to jail and if it were not for his intervention they would still be there. Furthermore, that despite what he did for them he did not think they would say thank you. Ball tweeted back a response which insinuated that President Trump did nothing to help Ball’s son and teammates get out of Chinese prison. When Ball appeared on CNN with Chris Cuomo shortly thereafter he still refused to thank the president.

President Trump responded by calling Ball a poor man’s version of Don King and calling him an ungrateful fool. A short while later, Ball’s son and his teammates were suspended indefinitely even after their public thank you where they expressed gratitude to the president. Ball continued to double down, refusing to thank him even after some time had passed.

It is very clear that Ball is highly ungrateful. President Trump hit it right on the head, there is no doubt about it. Much like other Hollywood entertainers, politicians, and detractors who trash the president Ball’s bad move will likely lead to him getting the Trump curse. One where public figures trash the president and as a result lose their career, lose notoriety and all around lose the entire situation. Ball needs a training in manners and perhaps his fall from grace will be the life lesson he so desperately needs.
