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.

DC Mayor Now Bribing Children to Get Vaccine with Gift Cards, AirPods

Unbelievable.

Published

The Biden Administration is coming to a startling realization in recent weeks, as the number of folks who aren’t vaccinated approaches the number of folks who won’t be vaccinated. As it stands today, about half to the nation is inoculated, with the other half largely unwilling to go down that road.  In order to reach herd immunity, experts suggest that as many as 70% of us will need to have COVID antibodies – a fact that has prompted a number of municipalities to work up programs to entice Americans to get the jab. In DC, they are now targeting children with these incentives. Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser announced Thursday the city will offer cash and goodies to children from August 7 as gifts for those who receive their first shot of the coronavirus vaccine. Bowser previewed the August reward program saying, “All DC youth can claim their free COVID-19 [Chinese coronavirus] vaccine” at three locations in D.C., adding the “youth can receive a $51 VISA gift card.” Additional prizes will see, “The first 400 youth to get vaccinated at each site will have the option to forgo their gift card and instead receive a pair of AirPods.” And the parents are being targeted as well. She revealed other enticements, saying “parents/guardians will also get one $51 VISA gift card,” adding the gift cards are “per child vaccinated,” which could be lucrative for families with multiple children. The announcement comes on the heels of a similar bribe by NYC officials who offered $100 to anyone willing to get the jab.

Delta Info Leaked: CDC Says It’s More Transmissible Than Smallpox

That can’t be good.

Published

We are now in month 17 of our “2-week lockdown”.  You remember?  The one that was meant to “flatten the curve” two St. Patrick’s Days ago. So, nearly a year-and-a-half later, we are now dealing with something called the “delta” variant, and a return to the masks and restrictions that marred society during the early days of the pandemic. The CDC’s guidance on the matter changed abruptly this week, drawing a great deal of criticism from Americans the nation over.  Now, a leaked document appears to show why the organization changed their tune. The Delta variant is much more contagious, more likely to break through protections afforded by the vaccines and may cause more severe disease than all other known versions of the virus, according to an internal presentation circulated within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Dr. Rochelle P. Walensky, the director of the agency, acknowledged on Tuesday that vaccinated people with so-called breakthrough infections of the Delta variant carry just as much virus in the nose and throat as unvaccinated people, and may spread it just as readily, if less often. And, when compared to other infamous outbreaks, “delta” holds its own. The Delta variant is moretransmissible than the viruses that cause MERS, SARS, Ebola, the common cold, the seasonal flu and smallpox, and it is as contagious as chickenpox, according to the document, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times. The immediate next step for the agency is to “acknowledge the war has changed,” the document said. Its contents were first reported by The Washington Post on Thursday evening. The news comes just a children the nation over are preparing to head back to the classroom, and with cooler, drier weather just around the corner to drive some of us back indoors.
