Colin Kaepernick’s Legal Team Putting Together Grievance Case, Look Who They Want Testimony From

This guy doesn’t know when to quit.

The legal team hired by former San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick is seeking federal subpoenas in the coming weeks in an attempt to get testimony from both President Trump and Vice President Pence — along with a few others — for the grievance case he’s putting together against the NFL.

It seems this guy is not happy enough with the destruction he’s already caused in the National Football League, thus he seeks to continue dealing out as much damage as possible.

Sad.

Kaepernick’s lawyers hope to dive into the White House’s political involvement with the league during the quarterback’s free agency and the league’s handling of player protests, Yahoo Sports reported Thursday, citing sources with knowledge of the collusion case.

The former San Francisco 49ers star will have to jump through another set of hoops while trying to get the White House involved in its case.

According to Yahoo, Kaepernick’s legal team will have to convince the system arbitrator overseeing the grievance case that Trump, Pence and others’ testimony would be relevant and make an impact on the case. If the arbitrator grants the request, the lawyers will then have to seek the subpoenas in a district court under the Federal Arbitration Act. Should both hurdles be cleared, it could call into question whether Trump, and others, could be forced to sit for depositions.

The latest development in the Kaepernick grievance case comes more than a week after it was revealed Trump’s public and personal pressure on NFL owners played a big role in the league’s decision to change its national anthem rules amid controversial player protests.

In depositions by NFL owners obtained by The Wall Street Journal, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones revealed that Trump personally told him “you can’t win this one.”

Kaepernick has repeatedly disrespected the flag, the nation, and the men and women who fought for his freedom time and again with his “protest” before games. As if that wasn’t bad enough, his actions have led others in the league to do the same.

Listen, no one is saying he should be silent on issues he feels passionate about. What people are saying is there is a right time to be vocal and outspoken and a time not to be. During the National Anthem is one of those times.

It doesn’t seem likely he’ll actually get the testimony he’s after here, but you can’t fault the guy for trying. Well, you can, actually. Anyway, it’s just time for Kaepernick to ride off into the sunset.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
