Biden Makes Baseball’s Opening Day Political, Calls on MLB to Cancel Atlanta All-Star Game

Stop. Mixing. Politics. And. Sports.

For those of you who are not fans of our national pastime, first, I pity you. This is the other beautiful game and I hope that one day you can enjoy the game the way that many of us do.

But, secondly, today is a special day for those of us entranced by baseball. This is Opening Day. The big show is getting started.

And while there certainly is reason or celebration, especially as fans were forced to settle for a truncated 2020 season with little to no live attendance, there is also a controversy rounding the bases, ready to collide at home plate in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia.

You see, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has recently signed a very unpopular law into being that the left, (and some in the middle), say is designed to restrict voting in liberal-leaning parts of the state. This has led to a number large corporations receiving calls to boycott the entire state of Georgia, including an instance in which the MLB was allegedly considering moving the All Star Game out of the Peach State on account of it.

President Joe Biden weighed in on the possibility this week during an appearance on ESPN.

From Breitbart:

Host Sage Steele asked, “Mr. President, what do you think about the possibility that baseball decides to move their All-Star Game out of Atlanta because of this political issue?”

Biden responded, “I think today’s professional athletes are acting incredibly responsibly. I would strongly support them doing that. People look to them. They’re leaders. Look at what’s happened with the NBA as well. Look at what’s happened across the board. The very people who are victimized the most are the people who are the leaders in these various sports. And it’s just not right.”

The quip comes as CEO’s from both Delta Airlines and Coca-Cola, (two of Georgia’s most powerful corporations), have loudly condemned the legislation.

So. Korea Repatriates Remains of U.S. Soldiers to Hawaii, Biden Admin Sends No Representatives

The country of South Korea repatriated the remains of several U.S. soldiers who died fighting the Korean War, yet the Biden admin. sent no representatives at all to the ceremony.

In yet another Democrat slap in the face to our armed forces, Biden sent not one single representative to accept the gift of the remains of our brave soldiers when South Korea’s President, Moon Jae-in, and his wife, landed in Hawaii for the repatriation ceremony.

The South Korean dignitaries were met by a military honor guard when they arrived on the island of Oahu on Tuesday. But no member of the federal government was there to greet them.

The ceremony was properly solemn. Jae-In presented the remains of six U.S. soldiers whose remains were discovered recently after they had died decades ago in the 1950 to 1953 war. Jae-In also bestowed distinguished service medals posthumously to two Korean immigrant soldiers that day.

And, again, Biden sent no one.

Per Hawaii News Now:

South Korean President Moon Jae-In and First Lady Kim Jung-Sook were on Oahu Wednesday to honor fallen servicemembers.

They attended the first-ever joint repatriation ceremony at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in the afternoon.

There, the remains of 68 Republic of Korea soldiers and 6 U.S. service members who died during the Korean War were returned.

The ceremony was held to honor those fallen warriors 71 years since the start of the Korean War on June 25.

While Admiral John Christopher Aquilino was on hand, as he should have been, there should also have been at least someone from Biden’s regime.

This is just another example of how Democrats don’t care about our soldiers.

Not to mention this slap at South Korea’s president who made this personal gesture.

Didn’t liberals tell us Biden would be better for our allies?

NYC Restauranteurs Blast De Blasio’s Vax Mandates: ‘We’re Being Assaulted’

The trouble continues for Big Apple eateries.

Published

Just days ago, a wild and unruly bit of viral video made headlines, and reignited a national debate about the possibility of vaccine mandates throughout our great nation.

So far, the only real federal vaccine mandate has come in the form of an order from the Biden administration, declaring that all federal employees would be required to receive an inoculation against COVID-19, as well as employees of any private company with more than 100 workers.

But there are plenty of local and private ordinances that do require vaccination, including a controversial proclamation in New York City that requires vaccines for all restaurant customers.  The aforementioned viral video depicted a group of Texan tourists physically assaulting a restaurant hostess that asked for their proof of vaccination in order to dine in their establishment.

This shocking incident has New York City’s restauranteurs crying foul.

“It’s gonna hurt my business for me to lose customers, to lose relationships with customers. We’re a neighborhood restaurant,” restaurant owner Massimo Felici said, according to NY1. According to the outlet, Felici said the mandate, barring unvaccinated people from dining indoors, has had a negative impact on his business.

“They’re making us police this. We are getting the ripple effect. We’re getting assaulted for it, accused for it whatever you wanna call it. That’s it. Period. It shouldn’t be us,” he added, noting the rules remain unclear to most, as unvaccinated individuals can still dine outdoors.

“You’d be surprised how many people are confused about what’s allowed and what’s not allowed. If you read that, it makes it sound like you cannot come into my restaurant for dinner if you do not have the vaccination,” he said of the city’s signs.

Other establishment owners lamented the reality of the mandates being bad for business, especially as restaurants continue to struggle to reach pre-pandemic prosperity.
