This tale begins on Sunday, November 11th, 1990. My sister, stepbrother, and I sat on the sofa watching the greatest single-game performance by a linebacker in NFL history. Derrick Thomas of the Kansas City Chiefs kept sacking Seattle’s quarterback Dave Krieg as the day progressed. We expected the first sack, also the second. The third […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America start by welcoming the news that Leif Olson has been re-hired at the Labor Department just one day after he was falsely accused of anti-Semitism by Bloomberg Law. Then they are encouraged that Secretary of […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are back! Today, they enjoy watching Democrats wasting time and money in pushing Rep. Joseph Kennedy III to launch a primary challenge against incumbent Democratic Sen. Ed Markey, but Jim also explains why it’s long past time to stop fawning over the Kennedys. Jim […]

Last night I was laying on the floor of my son’s room while reading him a bedtime story. We’ve had wildfires all week, and the smoke outside was so thick it eliminated the horizon and even distorted our view of nearby trees. We had every window closed and the inside temperature of nearly 90 degrees […]

The Best Two Minutes of the Superbowl

 

The best two minutes of the Superbowl were not on the field — those poor folks in Atlanta paid thousands of dollars for what might as well have been soccer for all the kicking — but the NFL’s commercial to commemorate its centennial.

Saints’ fans have made their loss to the Rams a federal case. Well, not literally. It’s a civil suit. I am not qualified to comment on the legal precedents. Nor will I speculate on what the actual arguments might be. More

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America give credit to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for countering Democratic demands for a million pages of documents on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by suggesting the Senate vote on him may come just days before the election. They also mourn the impending loss […]

David French has a post on The Corner at NRO arguing that the NFL has made a mistake in deciding to fine teams when players protest during the National Anthem. Before last year’s parade of horribles at the quarterback position, I wasn’t convinced that Colin Kaepernick was still good enough to play in the NFL. […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud President Trump for backing away from next month’s summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, proving he is not desperate for deal and keeping Kim off balance. While denouncing kneeling during the national anthem as the time or place to make a protest, […]

So the leftists running the NFL hate police so much they rejected a game program ad from AMVETS because it asked everyone to #PleaseStand for the national anthem. The NFL supports the millionaire players’ political demonstrations, which promote the lie that there is an epidemic of racist police killing innocent African American men, during the […]

Commissioner Goodell, well, the less I say to you the better, bless your heart. Owners, what are you thinking? Even if the league doesn’t have your back, how much sense does it make to offend any significant portion of your fan base? Tell your employees that if they disrespect the flag they will be playing […]

The NFL: Now a Case Study in Destructive Leftism

 

Seriously, Colin Kaepernick? You’re really doing this?

Yep, he’s filed a grievance against the NFL owners under their collective bargaining agreement, alleging that they have colluded to “deprive Mr. Kaepernick of employment rights in retaliation for Mr. Kaepernick’s leadership and advocacy for equality and social justice and his bringing awareness to peculiar institutions still undermining racial equality in the United States.”

Mike Jefferson had me on his sports podcast to discuss the NFL protests, the blight of inner-city education, the “genocide” of black youth shooting each other and the lie the Left purports regarding police brutality. Open-minded folks like Mike J. sharing a right-of-center perspective with his audience is a good start in bringing people together, as […]

So many of you have sworn off the National Football League that I thought I would catch you up on what’s been going on. I present this as a public service since exhibiting total ignorance of the league while standing around the water cooler at work might out you as some sort of a right […]

I didn’t expect to make another comment about what I think is a misguided and trivial protest, but this seems worth mentioning. Those who dishonor the flag and the country in protest of something owe the country, at a minimum, their sincere efforts to verify that what they protest is, in fact, real. More

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are glad to see the NFL concluding that the national anthem protests need to move to an actual effort to improve community-police relations and that the players ought to stand. They also slam Twitter for the second time this week, this time for suspending […]

It’s All Unraveling (And Why That’s a Good Thing)

 

Michael RamirezAmerica, tired of being lied to by its coastal betters, chose a President to tear it all down to the studs, from where a more hopeful and stronger country could rise again. Much of the anger that brought Donald Trump into office was certainly directed toward Washington DC’s elites, but also our cultural pillars. With a $20 trillion national debt, politicians had been Weinsteining their constituents for decades and people of both parties have had enough of the D.C./entertainment/sports/media complex.

The only results from the Progressives’ identity politics prescribed by Leftist septuagenarians was to balkanize a once civil union. Meanwhile, the overpaid, yet feckless consultant class on the right finagles their benefactor’s largesse but yield few results. Jabba the Hutt politicians along with their K-Street enablers tied the American voter to his chain, while they focused on reelection. It’s only about their power. From their mahogany walled watering holes in DC, they laugh at us idealistic rubes while ensuring their marble streets remain shiny in National Harbor. Americans weren’t just voting against DC. They were voting against the cultural rot that started decades ago.

… Or did they? Obviously, Trump and Pence are politicians, so they are going to engage in some measure of pandering, exploitation of wedge issues, and political theater. Was Pence leaving the Colts and 49ers game a cynical calculation, or a sincere protest of the disrespect shown to our anthem and flag? Nobody really knows–and it could […]
