Global Newss Tue, 26 Sep 2017 07:10:06 +0000 en hourly 1 James Woods DESTROYS NFL Player Protest in Epic Tweetstorm Tue, 26 Sep 2017 07:10:06 +0000 (Gateway Pundit) – The conservative actor is very active on Twitter, often posting hard hitting snarky tweets aimed at liberals.Woods went on an epic rant Sunday, blasting the NFL players for disrespecting the American flag.NFL player protests exploded Sunday after President Trump lashed out at the players for kneeling during the national anthem on Friday while at a campaign rally for Senator Luther Strange (R-AL).The crowd went wild after Trump said, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of the NFL owners, when someone disrespects our flag, to say ‘get that son of b*tch off the field right now! Out! He’s fired! He’s fired!”The crowd erupted into cheers and started chanting, “USA! USA! USA!”

At least a dozen NFL players knelt during the anthem before the London game Sunday between the Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars.

They did this in London.

These same players who knelt during the national anthem stood for the British anthem ‘God Save the Queen’. Unreal.

Even more disrespectful, Buffalo Bills player LeSean McCoy stretched during the national anthem on Sunday.

Does the NFL support this too?

James Woods unleashed on America hating liberals and spoiled NFL players in a viral tweetstorm.

Dallas Cowboys Owner Officially Banned His Players From Protesting The Anthem Tue, 26 Sep 2017 07:04:58 +0000 NFL players on Sunday became engulfed in the controversy surrounding the national anthem, following President Donald Trump’s comments at a campaign rally in Alabama on Friday which continued via Twitter throughout the weekend.The Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans opted not to take the field during the playing of the “Star Spangled Banner,” while all but one member of the Pittsburgh Steelers stayed in the locker room prior to their respective games on Sunday. Earlier in the day during a matchup between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Baltimore Ravens in London, players kneeled during the American anthem, then stood during “God Save the Queen,” Britain’s national anthem.

“I do not think the place to express yourself in society is as we recognize the American flag,” Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told FOX Business’ Cheryl Casone last week at a gala celebrating the 100-year anniversary of Forbes magazine, prior to Trump’s comments. “So that’s not the place to do anything other than honor the flag and everybody that’s given up a little bit for it.”

Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, who also co-founded Home Depot (HD), had a slightly different take, telling Casone players should still have the right to demonstrate their beliefs.

“I think we have to celebrate their right to express themselves, as every American does,” Blank told Casone at the event.

Sunday’s protests have been the largest so far this season, still in its infancy, and come in the wake of President Trump’s tweets and comments regarding the matter. Trump went as far as to suggest team owners fire players who kneel during the national anthem.

“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say ‘get that son of a b —- off the field right now? Out! He’s fired! He’s fired!'” Trump said on Friday. He continued to hammer the issue throughout the weekend.

“If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast. Fire or suspend!” he tweeted.The protests began last season when former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick kneeled during the national anthem to protest injustices against the African-American community. Kaepernick remains without a team so far this season after opting out of his contract with the team.

He’s Finished: Trump-Hating Jimmy Kimmel Was Just Caught Red-Handed Tue, 26 Sep 2017 07:02:55 +0000 Like a number of Hollywood celebrities who were growing increasingly irrelevant in a fed-up America, talk show host Jimmy Kimmel has tried to revitalize his career by bashing President Trump at every opportunity.But the funny man (and we use that term lightly) has just been exposed as nothing more than a shill for none other than Democrat “resistance” leader Chuck Schumer.Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s office offered Jimmy Kimmel “technical guidance” to assist the talk show host in his vendetta against Republicans’ most recent attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Schumer’s office “provided technical guidance and info about the bill, as well as stats from various think tanks and experts on the effects of Graham-Cassidy,” a source familiar with their conversations told the Daily Beast.

Kimmel, who thrust himself into the health care debate by broadcasting his son’s medical issues in May, has established himself as an influential voice in the fight against the Obamacare repeal effort.

No doubt, Kimmel will continue to be a tiny thorn in Trump’s side, but he’s lost all credibility as a genuine voice of protest.

He’s just cashing in on liberal hate, nothing more.

A Triple Amputee/Purple Heart Recipient Destroyed Cnn In An Epic Facebook Post Tue, 26 Sep 2017 07:01:28 +0000 No politician in US history has gotten as much negative press as Donald Trump. They’ve attacked him over little comments he made decades ago, they’ve attacked him over his legal tax write offs, and they’ve even blatantly lied about him.One blatant lie, that has been annoying conservatives all across the country, is the lie that Donald Trump has been in cahoots with Russia. There is been absolutely zero evidence to support this claim—in fact there’s numerous evidence to the contrary, which CNN continues to ignore.When former FBI head James Comey declared that Donald Trump was not under investigation, did CNN stop spreading their lies? Nope, not even for a second. When Donald Trump Jr. released his emails, did CNN acknowledge them, and apologize for their deceitful tactics? Of course not.

For a long time, it seemed that nothing, not even the clear cut and obvious truth, would put an end to CNN’s ridiculous, childish antics. That is, until one of the most respected airmen in all of US history had something to say about it.

In a single post that he published roughly a week ago, he completely and utterly DESTROYED CNN and their anti-Trump, anti-American, globalist agenda. The senior airman, Brian Kolfage, held nothing back—yet despite his no-holds-barred attack on CNN, he’s actually an incredibly generous and patriotic person.

Freedom Daily praised Brian for his noble sacrifice to protect our country:

“Brian Kolfage Jr. didn’t just fight and sacrifice for our country, he lost three limbs in war and now lives with the daily reminder of the price paid for our freedom.”
“This includes defending the right of the First Amendment that each one of us enjoys, which those at CNN use and abuse to disrespect our president and divide our nation.”
“Kolfage has good reason to take personal offence to this given his great sacrifice and since they won’t stop, he’s provided them with a new way of getting to their website, which sends a clear message of what’s really real.”

Brian stated that “[CNN is] the enemy of all Americans, because they put their agenda first, instead of the American people.” Many Americans, both conservatives and moderate liberals alike, are starting to feel the same way. It seems that CNN has been doubling down on their anti-Trump rhetoric, however, and it’s likely only going to make things worse.


The post was shared dozens of times, and has since been picked up by numerous conservative news outlets—it’s taken Twitter and Facebook by storm over the past 48 hours, and there’s a good chance that the folks over at #FakeNewsCNN have seen it more than once.

Freedom Daily skewered CNN in their piece on Brian Kolfage, claiming that they’ve been collaborating with ISIS and Al-Qaeda propaganda creators, something which has recently been confirmed.

Since President Trump’s inauguration, not a week has gone by without CNN being caught in some sort of scandal, lie, or hoax. And despite their constant protesting, it’s only a matter of time before they go bankrupt, and alternative conservative news outlets become the new mainstream media.

Thank you and God bless our veterans!

Newt Gingrich Just OBLITERATED Anthem Protesters With 8 Simple Words Tue, 26 Sep 2017 06:59:46 +0000 Former Speaker of the House Next Gingrich said over the weekend that “millionaires who say they are underprivileged” shouldn’t disrespect the country.Gingrich said he finds it “very offensive.”Check it out:He said it was “frustrating” that “millionaires who say they are underprivileged” are able to go about disrespecting our country and its veterans.“I don’t tune in to [sports] to worry about politics,” he said.

“I find it very offensive,” Gingrich said, adding that he believes kneeling players have sent sports down a slippery slope that will ultimately lead to the anthem no longer being played at games.“They’re not exactly oppressed,” he said of people like Colin Kaepernick who refuse to stand for presentations of colors at games.

Gingrich continued:

He said that it is their right to take “all their after-tax income and give it to some left-wing nutcase group,” but that the anthem is sacred.

“Don’t impose on me your sense of somehow, you feel oppressed,” Gingrich said. “If you’re a multimillionaire who feels oppressed, you need a therapist [and] not a publicity stunt.”

The Houston Texans Team Stood In Silence During The Anthem Tue, 26 Sep 2017 06:58:17 +0000 The NFL players continue to disrespect our nation by protesting the national anthem. On Sunday, the filed was filled with many players kneeling and demonstrating their hate toward America.And after the president’s statement criticizing the protests, even more players decided to protest the anthem. This infuriated many fans of the game who didn’t want to see such negativity on the field.But luckily one team refused to participate in the protests. The Houston Texans team stood in silence during the anthem showing their pride and honor of the flag.The Texans have seen a lot of devastation seeing how they are from Texas where Hurricane Harvey hit. Houston was destroyed by the flood and many people are still homeless.

Anyhow, the owner had some negative words to say regarding Trump’s speech.

“The NFL specifically, and football in general has always unified our communities and families,” Texans owner Bob McNair said. “The comments made by the President were divisive and counterproductive to what our country needs right now. I hope the reaction from our players results in positive action for our league, our communities and our country as a whole to make a positive difference in our society.”

“Texans players are caring, intelligent men who do so much good, as was shown in the past month when our city was devastated by Hurricane Harvey,” McNair added. “I have never been more proud of our players and our team than during this time. It was a display of what is truly possible when we all work together. We will continue to support our players to work together to promote the values of respect and unity.”

BREAKING: Senator McCain RAISES HEADS For His Comments About Trump! Tue, 26 Sep 2017 06:55:28 +0000 In an interview with “60 Minutes,” the Arizona senator says he would be open to reconciling with the U.S. president.Arizona Sen. John McCain arrives to Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., on Monday. In a “60 Minutes” interview that was aired over the weekend, the senator says his current prognosis for his brain cancer is “not good.”  (J. SCOTT APPLEWHITE / THE ASSOCIATED PRESS)  Sen. John McCain said U.S. President Donald Trump still hasn’t apologized for disparaging his war record on the campaign trail, but signalled he had put the matter behind him and would be open to reconciling with the president.During an interview with 60 Minutes broadcast late Sunday, host Lesley Stahl asked the Arizona Republican whether he would be receptive to a “rapprochement” with Trump, who mocked him in 2015 for being captured and imprisoned during the Vietnam War.

“Of course. I’ve supported him on national security. I’ve supported his team,” McCain said.“But personal,” Stahl asked. “I’m talking about man to man.”

“Personal? Sure,” McCain said. “I’d be glad to converse with him. But I also understand that we’re very different people.”

CBS News started promoting the interview around the same time Friday that McCain announced he would not vote for the latest Republican effort to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, potentially dooming the bill sponsored by Sens. Bill Cassidy and Lindsey Graham. McCain said he thought lawmakers could develop better legislation by working across the aisle.

Trump tweeted his outrage at McCain’s decision early Saturday morning, saying the senator had betrayed his state and his colleagues.

“John McCain never had any intention of voting for this bill, which his governor loves,” Trump wrote.

In July, McCain broke with his party and voted against a different ACA repeal measure that the White House and Republican leaders hoped would deliver on years of promises to unravel the health care law. Cameras captured the dramatic moment late that night when McCain approached the Senate clerk, raised his arm gave a thumbs down, sinking the legislation and infuriating the president.

Tension between Trump and McCain goes back years. Shortly after Trump announced he was running for president in summer 2015, he ridiculed McCain’s military service at a summit in Iowa. McCain, a decorated U.S. navy pilot, was imprisoned in Vietnam for more than five years, during which time he was tortured and kept in solitary confinement. “He’s not a war hero,” Trump said, adding “I like people that weren’t captured.”

The remarks, which have tainted the relationship between the two men ever since, came up again in McCain’s interview with 60 Minutes on Sunday. After playing a clip of Trump’s words, Stahl asked if McCain’s theatrical “no” vote in July was “more like a middle finger” and an attempt to retaliate against Trump.

“If I took offence at everybody who has said something about me, or disparaged me or something like that — life is too short,” McCain said. “You’ve got to move on. And on an issue of this importance to the nation, for me to worry about a personal relationship, then I’m not doing my job.”

The interview also touched on Trump’s decision to end DACA, the Obama-era program that allowed young undocumented immigrants to live and work in the United States without fear of deportation.

Trump has met with Democratic leaders in recent weeks to discuss a legislative deal to allow hundreds of thousands of “Dreamers,” as the young immigrants are called, to remain in the country. The White House has offered conflicting messages about whether such a deal is feasible, and some in Trump’s conservative base have recoiled at the possibility.

Stahl asked McCain if the president had “initiated divorce proceedings with Republicans.”

“I don’t know what he’s gonna do tomorrow or say tomorrow,” McCain told the host. “He changes his statements almost on a daily basis. So for me to spend my time trying to analyze what he says, I don’t know.”

When the conversation turned to Trump’s comments about McCain’s war record, McCain said the president had never apologized to him. He said he would be happy to talk with Trump but noted that they had “different life experiences.”

“He is in the business of making money and he has been successful both in television as well as Miss America and others,” McCain said. “I was raised in the concept and belief that duty, honour, country is the lodestar for behaviour that we have to exhibit every single day.”

McCain has been outspoken in his criticism of Trump. In a commentary for The Washington Post last month, he urged members Congress to seek compromise with each other, even if it means bucking the president. Trump, he said, “has no experience of public office, is often poorly informed and can be impulsive in his speech and conduct.”

“We must, where we can, co-operate with him. But we are not his subordinates,” McCain wrote. “We don’t answer to him. We answer to the American people.”

McCain, 81, was diagnosed with a deadly brain cancer called a glioblastoma in July. He receives chemotherapy and radiation treatment in the mornings, then heads to the Capitol for work. The cancer is fatal for many patients. McCain said he would not let the disease slow him down.

He told 60 Minutes: “It’s a very poor prognosis. So I just said, ‘I understand. Now we’re gonna do what we can, get the best doctors we can find and do the best we can.’ And, at the same time, celebrate with gratitude a life well lived.”

“I am more energetic and more engaged as a result of this,” he added, “because I know that I’ve got to do everything I can to serve this country while I can.”

BREAKING: NBC Host Megyn Kelly Announces She Is Ditching Politics!! Tue, 26 Sep 2017 06:51:59 +0000 Megyn Kelly is “done with politics for now.”The host opened Monday’s inaugural episode of Megyn Kelly Today, the 9 a.m. hour of NBC’s Today show, with that declarative statement. She noted that politics are everywhere, infused into every facet of our lives, and her new morning show would be far more focused on “fun.”It was a bit of necessary rebranding for the former Fox News anchor, who made her name diving into politics headfirst on the cable news channel, to enter the more lifestyle-focused world of morning TV.

Minus politics, Monday’s premiere was a blend of personal stories from Kelly, an audience Q&A, celebrity interviews and an “inspirational” field piece to close out the hour.

The combination is tricky, and the first episode was a bit awkward. Like any new series, Megyn has some growing pains, and that was apparent in missed cues, clumsy seating arrangements and some stiffness from Kelly, who, whether because of nervousness or her attempts to develop a new tone, speaks with a strange cadence.

And even an hour of the Today show cannot divorce itself from politics entirely. Her first guests were the cast and creators of NBC’s returning Will & Grace, which, as Kelly repeatedly explained, was a groundbreaking show for LGBTQ representation on television. Kelly focused on the impact the series had on that community, except she only mentioned “gays and lesbians,” and, in an ill-timed joke that didn’t land, asked a superfan in the audience, “Is it true you became a lawyer and gay because of Will & Grace“?

Kelly also devoted a segment to an elderly nun working against gun violence on the south side of Chicago, an area that Kelly called “like a war zone.” Chicago’s gun violence is another issue that’s been politicized, particularly by President Trump, but her focus is on the feel-good aspect of the nun’s “Peace Garden,” and her efforts to bring the mothers of violence victims and perpetrators together. While that serves its own purpose, it doesn’t make the issue entirely apolitical.

That, perhaps, is the biggest hurdle. She can say that she’s done with politics, but the subject is (by her own admission) everywhere, and side-stepping it won’t make it go away. The show will get better at staging and timing as it goes on, but a purpose is something harder to refine.

There’s a difference between choosing to focus on lifestyle and entertainment over political news, and ignoring the fact that politics exist in everyday issues. Megyn Kelly Today would do well to strike a better balance.

SLAMMED: Mike Rowe Just Put The NFL On Its Knees With This ONE Sentence That Has Trump Smiling Ear-To-Ear Tue, 26 Sep 2017 06:48:44 +0000 TV host Mike Rowe has never been one to argue politics, or really even bring them up at all. He’s built his name and reputation as a blue-collar guy who strongly supports vocational education, but keeps his distance from hot button issues in an effort to stay neutral. However, the landscape of politics has changed a great deal and Rowe finally felt the need to speak out.The recent controversy surrounding the NFL and the National Anthem sparked a rant from Rowe that took everyone by surprise. Not only did he say what many Americans have been feeling, he chose not to hold back when pointing the finger. Rowe was at an event taking questions from fans when the truth came rolling out.

“I know you avoid politics, (thanks!) and I remember your rant on the Colt’s leaving Baltimore,” asked a fan named Robert. “But I gotta ask – what’s happening to professional football, and what do you make of Trump’s comments about those who refuse to stand during the national anthem?”

Then out of nowhere, Rowe hit the crowd with a brilliant breakdown of what’s REALLYgoing on.

“Right now,” Rowe said, “The NFL, the players who choose to kneel, the networks who choose to broadcast their protest, the advertisers who sponsor the games are all eager for our attention. And they are all using football to get it. That’s all well and good, right up to the point where it isn’t. In my view, this controversy really isn’t about patriotism, social justice, racial inequality, or free speech. It’s not even about the flag or the national anthem. It’s really only about one thing – what we will tolerate, and what we won’t.”

Next in line was NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the NFL Player’s Association.

“I felt a similar bemusement when the Commissioner issued his response, followed by the President of the Player’s Union. Their comments – along with the comments of many of the players themselves – were perfectly reasonable, perfectly understandable, and perfectly in keeping with their first amendment rights. But they were also perfectly arrogant. Because they too, presuppose that millions of fans will continue to watch them play a game – no matter what,” Rowe wrote.

Players and teams shouldn’t be bringing their personal politics into something meant to be neutral. It’s a game, it’s supposed to fun and unifying, not unpatriotic and disrespectful.

“The players have agents and unions, the owners have money and power, and the fans are always caught in the middle. The resulting strikes and the constant uprooting of teams from broken-hearted towns proves beyond all question the overall lack of regard for fans in general.”

But Rowe finished with a rallying statement that ALL members of the NFL should listen to, pointing out that fans ultimately have the power.

“But here’s the thing, Rob,” Rowe concludes. “The fans of professional football are not powerless – we’re just not yet offended enough to turn the channel. Should that ever change in a meaningful way – if for instance, a percentage of football fans relative to those players who chose to kneel during today’s games, chose to watch something else next Sunday – I can assure you…the matter would be resolved by Monday.”

Rowe is right that money is dictating most of these players’ “politics.” According to Rowe and most Americans, these protests have been purposely sick and controversial to gain as much attention as possible. You can speak your mind without stepping on this nation’s history and values, something President Trump proves possible on the daily.

NFL ratings dip forces TV networks to repay advertisers Tue, 26 Sep 2017 04:06:11 +0000 The NFL’s television ratings decline this season is beginning to make a dent in the bottom line for major networks. Broadcasters like CBS and NBC saw sharp increases in audience deficiency units (ADUs), or “makegoods,” which are payments they must make to advertisers when ads do not receive the promised volume of impressions.In other words, fewer people watching football means fewer eyeballs to see ads, and the networks that broadcast NFL games are paying the price.

The major football networks all took a major hit last month in NFL ad revenue—the money they bring in from advertisers that pay for air time during football games.

In the month of November, NBC’s NFL ad revenue sunk 17% compared to last year, according to new data from the Standard Media Index. CBS saw a decline of 26% (earlier this month, AdWeek points out, CBS chairman Les Moonves boasted at a UBS event that “there have been no makegoods” on any of the network’s NFL broadcasts this season). Fox saw a 34% decline in its NFL ad revenue.

To be sure, some of these networks have less football to show this year, and thus less ad space to sell. CBS is showing one less NFL game this season than last season, and Fox is showing three fewer games.

But NBC is showing the same number of games as last season, and NBC saw the biggest decline of the three. It was because of makegoods.

The makegoods that networks must hand to advertisers come in the form of free airtime—they repay their obligation by giving the advertisers ad space in a different slot. SMI, which tracks more than 70 percent of all national TV ad spending, found that NBC and CBS gave away 20% of inventory as ADUs in November 2016, compared to just 5.2% and 11%, respectively, a year earlier.

There is no public consensus over exactly why football has steadily lost viewers this season. The league’s official stance early on was that the election cycle was distracting from football, but six weeks after the election, ratings have continued to fall.

Industry experts (and President-elect Donald Trump) have pinned the decline on everything from poor matchups on the field, to the availability of highlights on social media, to the crackdown on player touchdown celebrations, to outrage over the national anthem protests by Colin Kaepernick and other players.

But now the struggles of America’s national pastime have begun to affect the bottom line for networks, eating into what would have otherwise been a 5.3% increase for a TV industry that is combatting its own demons in the shape of other streaming platforms. In November 2016, the overall TV market was down -2.4% year over year.

“November was a fascinating one for the sector with a lot of moving parts. The final days of election coverage, a challenging football season, and a revitalized retail sector all contributed to the market delivering a modest gain,” said James Fennessy, CEO of Standard Media Index, in a statement. “Poor football ratings earlier in the season, combined with fewer games this month, finally caught up with the major broadcasters.”

Though the major networks have all taken an NFL ratings hit, Fox has been able to mitigate some of the damage with a small handful of big games, most often featuring the Dallas Cowboys, the No. 1 team in the NFC. The Thanksgiving game between the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins was the most-watched regular season NFL game in FOX Sports history, according to the network.

A 30-second ad on the three major networks still commands big money, averaging about $590,060 per unit, according to SMI.

The NFL is well aware of its ratings issue. Last week, the league announced it will experiment with the frequency of ad breaks during its Week 16 games, and with the number of ads that show during those breaks. The hope is that viewers will return.

To be sure, football isn’t going anywhere, and some experts downplay the current crisis. CBS chief research officer David Poltrack told investors at a conference this month that although the fumble in ratings was “quite a shock,” there is still “no reason to conclude a seminal change” has taken place in the appeal of TV’s most popular sport.
