President Trump Starts Petition Against ESPN. Here’s The Reason Why.

Published

on

The Trump administration has kicked off a petition against ESPN, railing against the sports network due to their National Anthem policy, further cementing the president’s stand on the whole NFL protest debacle that’s been unfolding for the last several years.

ESPN announced over the weekend that it would not be broadcasting the National Anthem during “Monday Night Football” broadcasts, though to be fair, this particular policy has actually been around for a bit.

Trump attacked ESPN’s statement on the matter during a rally Tuesday in West Virginia.

“You’re proud of our country, you’re proud of our history, and unlike the NFL, you always honor and cherish our great American flag,” Trump told the crowd at the rally. “It was just announced by ESPN that rather than defending our anthem, our beautiful, beautiful national anthem and defending our flag, they’ve decided that they just won’t broadcast when they play the national anthem. We don’t like that.”

On Wednesday, the Trump administration sent out an email to supporters who signed up to receive such communications.

The email revealed that Trump is quite unhappy with ESPN as a result of its stance on the national anthem — hence the petition.

The email states:

Friend,

Just after we heard a sitting governor trash America, ESPN has now decided it will no longer play the National Anthem before Monday Night Football.

If “America” is too offensive for anyone in our country, then what are they doing in America?

I’m calling on you to join me in denouncing the SPINELESS surrender to the politically correct liberal mob.

I was the first person to sign this petition. Now I need you to follow my lead and be the second.

Look, it’s understandable that the president has deep passions about this issue, as it seems a lot of American citizens do too and support his stance on the problem. However, perhaps his time would be better served focusing on economic issues and foreign policy challenges, two things he’s excelled at during his time in office.

That’s not to say this isn’t an important issue, but perhaps it’s one we as citizens and fans of the sport of football ought to handle ourselves by opting to not watch games on television or attend events in person?

Regardless, it’s wonderful to see a president who loves his country so much. Patriotism is a rare thing this day and age.

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.
