This week, President Trump was kicked off Twitter for good for allegedly inciting violence among his supporters before they stormed the U.S. Capitol. The contrast gained immediate attention, highlighted by the news site Not the Bee shortly after Trump was banned from Twitter...

    Nike is pulling a tennis shoe adorned with a Betsy Ross flag image after former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick complained to the shoemaker about the racist undertones of the design, the Wall Street Journal reports. The heel-area back of the shoe features has the early design of the U.S. flag, which has 13 white stars in a circle on it and is named after Ross, a Philadelphia upholsterer and flag-maker who died in 1836. Citing unnamed sources familiar with the matter, the Journal said Kaepernick, a Nike endorser, told the company he and others found the flag symbol offensive because...

    The heat Nike has taken over its controversial advertising campaign featuring former NFL start Colin Kaepernick seems to have had another effect: burnishing the iconic brand's appeal to investors. Nike shares have surged 36 percent on the year, making the company the top performer on the Dow's index of 30 blue-chip stocks. The run-up includes a nearly 5 percent increase since Nike's Labor Day announcement that Kaepernick would be featured in its campaign, adding nearly $6 billion to the company's market value. The stock continues to hover near an all-time high, which it reached in mid-September only weeks after some...

    If white people had their own publication, it would be Wired magazine. From top to bottom, this is a uniquely Caucasian experience: from the white readers, to the white advertisers, to the white employees, to the white town where it is headquartered, to the white subject matter of high tech, to the white owners at Conde Nast, which also owns just about every other magazine on the planet not named Jet or Ebony or Black anything. Of the 80 people pictured on the masthead of Wired, only two are black. That is why I was a bit surprised to see...

    Colin Kaepernick was invited by NFL players to attend the next meeting with owners, according to multiple reports including Andrew Brandt of the MMQB. NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said he was unsure whether the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback would attend. Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports! reports that Kaepernick will attend and players are happy to have him join. Kaepernick's lawyer said that no one from the NFL reached out with an invitation to last week's meeting in New York City where owners, players and commissioner Roger Goodell discussed the ongoing protests during the national anthem before football games.

    Authorities said one woman was killed and seven others were wounded after a 26-year-old African-American man wearing a ski mask opened fire at a Tennessee church Sunday. The gunman, who officials said shot himself and was taken to a hospital, opened fire at Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch, southeast of Nashville, just after 11 a.m. and fired “multiple rounds,” police said in a news conference. The Nashville Fire Department called the incident “a mass casualty situation.” A church usher confronted the gunman at one point and was pistol-whipped, causing "significant injury around his head." He told police he...

    Brock Osweiler is headed back to the Denver Broncos, and people are not happy he got picked up before Colin Kaepernick. Osweiler, who played for the Broncos two seasons ago, was resigned by Denver almost immediately following getting cut by the Cleveland Browns. As you can imagine, people were not happy Osweiler has a job and Kaepernick doesn’t. Brock Osweiler has a job and Colin Kaepernick does not. Just let that sink in. #Kaepernick #BrockOsweiler — Ashley Galpin (@AGalpin1) September 3, 2017 I think Kaepernick + Broncos D would give them 11 wins. But no, go ahead, sign Osweiler.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Kaepernick will void the deal, though he could end up returning to San Francisco.

    Colin Powell attempted to persuade Hillary Clinton and her aides to not use him as a scapegoat for the controversy surrounding her private email server, according to leaked emails hacked from the former secretary of state’s Gmail account. In the emails, which were obtained by The Intercept, Powell wrote to at least one confidant about his repeated warning to Clinton not to blame him for the scandal. “I told her staff three times not to try that gambit. I had to throw a mini tantrum at a Hampton’s party to get their attention. She keeps tripping into these ‘character’ minefields,”...

The contents of the emails were first reported by Buzzfeed News.

    In other words, the headline should read "Hillary Blames Bush Appointee Colin Powell For DNC Hack, State Department Hack, Clinton Foundation Hack, Email Scandals" ... I mean, that is what she is doing. She is like Lochte, no difference, first telling lies then fake apology scenarios, then blaming someone else meaning blaming her "bros". Both Hillary and Colin make me sick, Hillary is by far the worse of the two Obamanists. But despite the fact that Colin is a tom turkey, he isn't to blame, but she is doing the angle to somehow blame the entire email scandals on Bush...

  • Colin Powell, Wasserman Schultz support Iran nuclear deal

    President Obama’s Iran nuclear deal on Sunday got some largely unexpected support -- from former Secretary of State Colin Powell and Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. The deal, which is expected to receive a vote this week in the Republican-led Congress, has essentially no other GOP support. Still, Obama late last week secured enough support from Senate Democrats to ultimately complete the deal, despite the Republican opposition. Powell, who served in the Republican administration of President George W. Bush, said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the international agreement is "a pretty good deal" that would reduce the threat...

    Appearing on MSNBC, former Secretary of State Colin Powell savaged the Republican Party of which he says he is still a member for catering to “elements” that are overtly hostile to people of other races or nationalities. Powell told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell that there are groups within the GOP who “demonize people who don’t look like the way they’d like them to look.” He added that, for this reason, he believes the GOP needs him more than the Democratic Party needs him. He said that even senior-level Republicans continue to make “statements about women” and “minorities” that make the party...
