Some players refuse to cave to the Black Lives Matter domination over the league. One such player is Steelers offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva.According to CBS News, the Steelers were directed to wear the name of Antwon Rose, Jr. on the back of their helmets after the team took a vote. Rose was a 17-year-old who was shot by police in the back as he ran away from a vehicle he was a passenger in. Police had pulled the car...

    WASHINGTON — Emboldened by President Donald Trump’s campaign platform of law and order, militia groups have bolstered their strength before Election Day by attracting military veterans who bring weapons and tactical skills viewed as important to the organizations. The role of veterans in the newly proliferating militia groups — which sometimes are steeped in racism and other times steeped simply in anti-government zealotry — has increased over the last decade, said a dozen experts on law enforcement, domestic terrorism and extremist groups.

    Everyone on the left is trying to blame Donald Trump for COVID-19 and the deaths caused by it. Gov. Andrew Cuomo is trying to blame Trump for the outbreak in New York. Joe Biden wants voters to believe Trump is responsible for the deaths caused by a virus that started in and was covered up by China for weeks before alerting the World Health Organization. Joe Biden has claimed “it didn’t have to be this way” despite having failed to present a single alternative response to the virus. In fact, he often plagiarized Trump’s COVID-19 response by “proposing” actions that...

    The Vietnam Veterans Plaza in New York City honors the 1,741 New Yorkers who died in Vietnam, as well as 250,000 New Yorkers who served during that war. When Mayor Ed Koch needed someone to raise the money to build it in 1983, he called on Donald John Trump. Trump raised the money the old-fashioned way, by writing the first check. He donated a million bucks, which was 40% of the $2.5 million needed.

    We were spat upon and called war criminals, baby killers and every name in the book. Wannabe president John F'n Kerry even accused our guys of cutting off ears and wiring up testicals, etc. Very few democrats--civilian or elected--respected the troops or gave us any support whatsoever. Remember Fonda posing for the communist VC? Most of these traitors still hate our vets and troops today. Same thing happened when we went to war under President Bush. The traitorous democrats went to war against our troops. Good to see the traitor democrats finally rushing in to support our troops (even if...

I was trying to get back down to the ground floor. There were no windows, and the upstairs floor seemed to wind around. I could not find the elevator or stairs. I started to feel claustrophobic as I had been locked in a basement as...
