HS Pitcher Embraces Batter After Striking Him Out and Cinching Championship, The Reason Why Is Pure Class

So awesome.

Published

on

Ty Koehn, pitcher for Mounds View High School was down to the last out of the sectional championship game and was looking to wrap up the three-hit shutout and cinch victory for his team.

The batter Koehn was up against was Jack Kocon of Totino-Grace, who he swiftly struck out, nabbing the championship title in a 4-0 victory and earning a trip for his team to the state quarterfinals.

However, rather than immediately start celebrating, there was something else Koehn needed to do first. This is awesome.

But while his Mustangs teammates were understandably ecstatic, jumping up and down and celebrating their hard-earned victory, the pitcher put all that on stand by.

See, Koehn’s strikeout victim — Kocon — has been a close friend for quite a while. And Koehn had no intention of celebrating before heading to home plate to hug his pal.

“I knew him from all the way back when we were 13. We were on the same little league team,” Koehn told Bring Me the News. ” It was tough when we went to separate schools, but we kept in touch.”

“I knew the game was going to keep going or it was going to end right there,” Koehn added to the outlet. “I knew I had to say something. Our friendship is more important than just the silly outcome of a game. I had to make sure he knew that before we celebrated … It was more instinct, it just felt right.”

Now that’s class.

Sports are an important part of human culture because they reflect outwardly, so much of what we go through inwardly, much like art such as novels, comics, and films.

The struggle against limitation, whether imposed by our selves or outside forces, the drive to overcome, the will to fight on even when the odds are stacked completely against you are scenarios that we all as human beings face at some point in our lives.

Sports symbolize those struggles and provide a cathartic release for the anxiety of being in situations that are challenging.

Given the emotions that run high during sporting events, it’s always good to see such outstanding sportsmanship. This kid’s parents ought to be proud. They’ve raised an awesome human being.

WATCH: Reporters Disrespect America, Do the Unthinkable During National Anthem

Did they think we wouldn’t notice??

John Salvatore

Published

Before telling America he would compromise with Democrats to end the partial government shutdown, President Trump participated in a naturalization ceremony in the Oval Office.

No doubt a special moment for the new Americans.

No doubt a special moment for Trump, as well.

LOOK:

The pledge of allegaince was quickly followed by the national anthem.

What were a couple reporters caught doing?

Focus on the left side of the screen…

WATCH (around 1:09:45 mark):

Did you catch it?

You can clearly see at least two reporters typing away on their phones.

Talk about disrespect!

Facepalm.

Compromise means something to most people. To Democrats, it literally means nothing.

Florida Senator Marco Rubio’s perfect tweet drives that point home.

LOOK:

Spot on!

Rubio on the border:

President Trump is adamant that he wins in all scenarios, especially when it involves a promise he made to the people who put him in office.

As far as the border wall goes, it appears Democrats are beginning to show signs of giving in to the president’s wishes.

From Free Beacon:

Some Democratic lawmakers are beginning to crack on their opposition to the wall.

Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR): “Some fencing has uses. Some barriers are useful.

Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-IL): “If we have a partial wall, if we have fencing, if we have technology used to keep our border safe, all of that is fine.

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY): “There are areas along the border where there are currently fences that are put up or barriers that are put up that need to be enhanced.

Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD): “Certainly you need barriers and we support barriers.

Rep. John Sarbanes (D-MD): “Certain physical barriers can make sense along the border, and a lot of places you already have that.

Rep. Katherine Clark (D-MA): “I think there are parts of the border that would benefit from repairing fencing and other barricades that already exist there.

WATCH:

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) put on a creepy performance after Trump addressed the nation on Tuesday night.

Twitter noticed.

From Fox News:

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Tuesday night that President Trump used his prime-time Oval Office address to “manufacture a crisis, stoke fear, and divert attention from the turmoil in his Administration.”

In a response delivered jointly with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Schumer called on Trump to approve legislation ending the partial government shutdown “while allowing debate over border security to continue.”

“We can re-open the government and continue to work through disagreements about policy,” Schumer said. “We can secure our border without an expensive, ineffective wall. And, we can welcome legal immigrants and refugees without compromising safety and security. The symbol of America should be the Statue of Liberty, not a thirty-foot wall.”

Pelosi only likes facts her party creates.

She hates actual facts.

Classic lefty, huh?

From Daily Wire:

In a tense meeting with Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen about the U.S.-Mexico border — in which Nielsen was spieling out a slew of facts (the non-fungible kind) — Pelosi interrupted to declare: “I reject your facts.”

“The clash between the top House Democrat and a key member of President Trump’s Cabinet occurred during a Wednesday meeting in the White House amid the impasse over the government shutdown, with Trump standing firm and demanding $5 billion for the border wall,” Fox News reported.

Just a few years ago, Schumer spoke the same way President Trump speaks now about illegal immigration.

Just goes to show how political the border wall has become.

Did you know America has three coasts?

Pelosi has apparently clued the rest of us in on a monumental secret.

The next Speaker of the House struggled with U.S. geography on Thursday as she once again announced her opposition to a wall along the border with Mexico.

We, most of us, speaking for myself, consider the wall immoral, ineffective and expensive, and the President said – he promised – he also promised Mexico would pay for it.

So even if they did, it’s immoral still, and then they’re not going to pay for it. So that isn’t how I would interpret a congressional – a continuing resolution.

[…]

We have a responsibility, all of us, to secure our borders, North, South, and coming in by plane on our coasts, three coasts–North, South and West–and that’s the responsibility we honor. But we do so by honoring our values as well.

Ocasio-Cortez Admits On Camera She Supports Anti-Semitic Women’s March (Video)

It’s unreal. Alexandria gets away with EVERYTHING!

John Salvatore

Published

on

The Democrat Party has a huge problem with anti-Semitism.

People who are honest with themselves will come to that conclusion.

Freshman Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Ilhan Omar (MN) are two of the absolute worst offenders.

But they are hardly the only ones.

Fellow Freshman socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) is now openly embracing the Women’s March, despite its leaders’ blatantly anti-Semitic remarks.

On Saturday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) embraced the anti-Semitic Women’s March, just days after the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and other left-wing organizations cut ties with the movement over blatant anti-Semitism.

[…]

Women’s March co-president Tamika Mallory recently defended calling Louis Farrakhan the “greatest of all time,” and refused to affirm Israel’s right to exist in two separate interviews.

Anti-Semitism within the Women’s March is so blatant that the DNC and far-left Emily’s List cut ties with the organization last week.

Ocasio-Cortez wouldn’t answer when asked the question: “Why are you standing with people who openly support Hamas, a terrorist organization that kills Jewish people?

WATCH:

AOC then very ignorantly blamed the Trump administration for being anti-Semitic.

Yeah, for real.

WATCH:

Five, six, seven, eight! America was never great!

Another clip:

Women’s Marches were canceled all over the country, including Chicago and California.

As far as the Golden State is concerned, the march was canned because too many white people signed up.

How funny.

From WJLA:

“Up to this point, the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several perspectives in our community,” the press release went on to say. “Instead of pushing forward with crucial voices absent, the organizing team will take time for more outreach. Our goal is that planning will continue and we will be successful in creating an event that will build power and community engagement through connection between women that seek to improve the lives of all in our community.”

How is it that so many millions of people can turn a blind eye to the harsh realities of the Democrat Party?

Ignorance? Willful ignorance?

Linda Sarsour, a far-left Women’s Marcher, has made some pretty anti-Semitic statements in the past.

For example, she said people should stop humanizing Jews.

For real. No joke. See below.

So then how does the national co-director of Code Pink say Sarsour is the greatest ally to the Jewish people with a straight face?

From Daily Wire:

Last night on Fox’s “The Ingraham Angle,” Code Pink’s national co-director, Ariel Gold, defended Linda Sarsour, claiming that the Jewish community has “no greater ally” than she.

Ingraham: “You say that Linda Sarsour is an ally of the Jewish people, then why would Jewish Americans like Jonathan Greenblatt— he is the head of the Anti-Defamation League— have a real problem with her statements?

Gold responded by calling it “disgraceful” that Greenblatt is “spending his time going after people who are our real allies. After the attack on Jewish cemeteries, Linda Sarsour raised over $100,000 after the Pittsburgh massacre, she raised over $200,000.”

Gold: “We have no greater ally in the Jewish community in this time where anti-Semitism is dangerously on the rise than Linda Sarsour.

WATCH:

Sarsour was arrested for civil disobedience during the Senate confirmation hearings of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

A Muslim, Sarsour is a strong supporter of Palestine and has been known to take radical positions.

She got some very bad news recently.

The founder of the Women’s March, Teresa Shook, is calling on Sarsour to step down for her anti-Semitic and homophobic remarks.

“As Founder of the Women’s March, my original vision and intent was to show the capacity of human beings to stand in solidarity and love against the hateful rhetoric that had become a part of the political landscape in the U.S. and around the world. I wanted us to prove that the majority of us are decent people who want a world that is fair, just and inclusive of Women and All people. We proved that on January 21, 2017 (and in the U.S. this past midterm with a diverse electorate).

Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour and Carmen Perez of Women’s March, Inc. have steered the Movement away from its true course. I have waited, hoping they would right the ship. But they have not. In opposition to our Unity Principles, they have allowed anti-Semitism, anti- LBGTQIA sentiment and hateful, racist rhetoric to become a part of the platform by their refusal to separate themselves from groups that espouse these racist, hateful beliefs. I call for the current Co-Chairs to step down and to let others lead who can restore faith in the Movement and its original intent. I stand in Solidarity with all the Sister March Organizations, to bring the Movement back to its authentic purpose. As Women’s March founder, I am stepping up to bring focus back to the Unity Principles on which our movement began, and with the support of all of those who marched and have continued to march, I pledge to support grassroots, decentralized leadership promoting a safe, worldwide community devoid of hate speech, bigotry and racism.”

Will the top dogs in the Democrat Party, such as Sen. Chuck Schumer, himself a Jew, call out Sarsour?
