    Tim flagged this in his Saturday post about the annual Army-Navy football game, but I thought it merited its own post, just for maximum exposure.  The game itself resulted in Army's second consecutive dramatic victory, after 14 straight years of Navy triumphs.  Regardless, the performance of the Star Spangled Banner prior to the game, featuring the glee club from each military branch, was really beautiful -- especially amid the lightly falling December snow.  A stirring, patriotic tribute. "Goosebumps" is right:2017 National Anthem at the Army-Navy Game (Video) And here's how the game ended, with apologies to the Midshipmen: NO GOOD....

    "Christianity has a long legacy of great minds who toiled to understand the Holy Scriptures and Christian orthodoxy and applied them in ways to navigate matters of politics and international relations. However, today there is great confusion, partly due to the lack of proper catechesis, which works as a bulwark against bad doctrine and progressivism in general." "Now this independent, spirited president and his administration have come at a time when these concepts are being rediscovered and debated. What is America? How do we preserve her culturally? How do we rediscover, appreciate, and protect her?" "No doubt youve also seen,...

    Kathy Griffin was booed by the crowd at her Dublin performance on Wednesday, November 8 after she mistakenly included Ireland as part of the United Kingdom. She stated it was nice being in the United Kingdom, and seemed genuinely shocked when the friendly crowd suddenly turned to her booing and catcalling. Griffin became so startled she had difficulty continuing with her routine, The New York Times reported. Most of the Irish people at the show in Vicar Street clearly believed Griffin, an Irish American, should have known better. She has been a frequent visitor there and visited her grandmothers hometown...

    John Schnatter, the CEO of Papa Johns who appears in nearly all of his chains TV commercials, is blaming a massive drop in his companys revenue on kneeling NFL players. Papa Johns is a big sponsor of the NFL, but it seems highly unlikely that a few men protesting police brutality could torpedo an entire pizza chain. Perhaps Papa John should look at his business practices before blaming others, as Ring of Fires Farron Cousins explains.

    American patriotism is not exactly in vogue these days among Democrats, Hollywood starlets and the National Football League. Its considered fashionable among the social justice crowd to take a knee during the national anthem, burn the American flag and dishonor our troops. But thats hardly the prevailing opinion across the fruited plain where tens of thousands of young teenagers are rising up and publicly declaring their love for America and their devotion to freedom. Last week, some 65,000 members of the Future Farmers of America Organization gathered in Indianapolis to celebrate our great nation. I received a video of...

    One Christian college has developed a unique response to the "culture" of star athletes like Colin Kaepernick refusing to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance a mandatory class on patriotism. "We are trying to teach students to understand and support and be willing to defend our country," Jerry Davis, president of the College of the Ozarks, a Christian liberal arts college outside of Branson, Mo., told Fox News on Friday. "We think that's needed, especially because of the culture in which we live. We have 99 percent of us being having our safety secured by less than 1...

    A video published on Instagram shows a student in Westminster, Md. kicking the chair from underneath a peer who didn't stand during the Pledge of Allegiance Tuesday. According to the Daily Mail, the Winters Mill high school student who kicked the chair was disciplined. He can be heard telling his classmate he was being disrespectful, and needed to have his "a** kicked." The Daily Mail reports school officials didn't state whether the student was sitting for a specific reason or protest, though he later posted on social media he was "practicing [his] right to free speech." "I will not stand...

    The red, white and blue has flown outside LaPoynor High School in LaRue, Texas for as far back as anyone can remember. But instead of 50 stars on a blue field, this flag bears a cross - a symbol of the Christian faith.The Christian flag flies alongside the Texas flag and Old Glory. And that's a big problem for a bunch of out-of-town atheist agitators -- a mighty big problem.The Freedom From Religion Foundation, a Wisconsin-based group of atheists, agnostics and freethinkers, sent a letter to the local school district demanding the flag be removed."It is unconstitutional for the school to...

    Indications from Tuesday's meeting between NFL owners, players, executives and NFL Players Association personnel are that all sides identified "common issues" and engaged in "productive" conversation about how to "work together to promote positive social change and address inequality" in the wake of peaceful protests across professional sports. The meeting, which came a day after reports that the NFL would formally endorse criminal justice legislation and finance a social activism boot camp, marked a "coming together," according to the league and NFLPA. NFL Network's Judy Battista suggested the dialogue Tuesday in New York was the "best communication [there] has ever...

    Donald Trump isnt exactly on a winning streak, but he is beating the NFL in a rout. The leagues commissioner, Roger Goodell, signaled the beginning of a messy, divisive retreat with a memo stating, Like many of our fans, we believe that everyone should stand for the National Anthem. Now he tells us. The climbdown comes only weeks after a clueless bout of self-congratulation by the NFL and the media over widespread anthem protests. Donald Trump doesnt play three-dimensional chess, as his supporters insist. But he does have an instinctive cunning and a grasp of a nationalistic cultural politics that...

    The left hates America – its history, its values, its customs, its success, its people. On Friday the far left Washington Post declared patriotism and love of country is racist. That’s how much the left and Democrat Party hates America.   At least they’re open about it now. The Washington Post reported: To Many Americans, being patriotic means being white. It’s definitely a new low for the American left. They are comfortable and open today with their hatred of America. And by definition, if you love your country and happen to be black, Asian or Hispanic, you’re a traitor...

    American Thinker ^ | 10/12/2017 | Rick Moran
    Back in the early 1980s, some conservatives began raising the alarm about the rising tide of anti-Americanism in primary and secondary public schools. "History" textbooks became "social studies" textbooks. Teaching the incredible story of America's founding was given short shrift, inspiring stories of individual Americans were omitted in favor of highlighting our many faults and teaching a form of "social history" that concentrated on those who were oppressed in the past. There is nothing wrong with teaching the complex and problematic history of America's past. But not at the expense of the truth. In fact, the amazing story of our...

Farmers, cowboys, merchants, clerks, truck drivers and Americans of all professions, put aside their beliefs and political persuasions, their differences and banded together to pay homage to those who had put their lives on the line for the liberty of our beloved America....

    Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick expressed his appreciation for Eminem's fiery four-and-a-half-minute freestyle takedown of President Trump. "I appreciate you," Kaepernick said in a tweet that also had the video, which aired at the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards on Tuesday. Kaepernick led a movement beginning last season when he took a knee during the national anthem to protest the treatment of African Americans and other minorities in the U.S. Eminem dedicated a portion of his freestyle to supporting Kaepernick and other NFL players who have recently come under attack by the president for those demonstrations. "Now, if...

    Hillary Clinton figuratively took a knee Monday night. The former presidential candidate pledged her support to the hundreds of NFL players who have protested during the national anthem this season while speaking at the University of California, Davis. "Let's be clear, those players aren't protesting the national anthem or the flag," Clinton said. "They're protesting racism and injustice, and they have every right to do so!" The 2016 democratic nominee received a loud applause after her announcement. Clinton's support of anthem protests is a sharp contrast to her counterpart Donald Trump's stance on the matter. Trump has repeatedly criticized players...

    Vice President Mike Pence was in attendance for the Indianapolis Colts-San Francisco 49ers game on Sunday, but he wasn't there for long. That's because he left Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis after several 49ers players took a knee for the playing of the national anthem. Pence, the former governor of Indiana, took to Twitter to announce his early departure, writing that he couldn't "dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem."(continued)
