If it’s true, this is damning.

As if the women’s national soccer team wasn’t already unlikable enough due to anti-Trump stars, right?

The absence of one of the best women’s soccer players in the nation from the national squad that just won the World Cup has prompted questions as to whether she didn’t make the team because of her openly professed Christian faith.

Jaelene Hinkle, 26, “has been called the top left defender in the U.S. game,” according to The Washington Times. Fox News noted Hinkle “helped her team win the NWSL championship and previously helped it win a title in 2016 when it was known as the Western New York Flash.”

But none of that apparently mattered to the women’s team. The Irish Times, which called Hinkle “the finest left-back in the NWSL,” wrote in June, “Hinkle likely would have been a fish out of water on the uber-woke women’s national team, some of whose biggest stars are openly lesbian, raising questions about whether she would have thrown off the squad’s chemistry.”

Allie Long, one of the players on the team, was apparently really excited to win the World Cup title.

So excited, in fact, that she dropped the American flag between her legs after the victory and partook in a choreographed celebratory dance with teammates Megan Rapinoe and Alex Morgan.

Rapinoe is a controversial figure who made good on her promise to ignore the National Anthem before the game as a protest against President Trump, totally spitting in the faces of all the veterans who have shed blood and given their lives to preserve her liberty.

Fellow teammate Kelley O’Hara raced to pick up the dropped flag during the incident.

Well, Benghazi hero, John “TIG” Tiegen, was none too happy with the display.

From TheBlaze:

Benghazi hero John “TIG” Tiegen hopped on Instagram after Long’s flag drop and called it a “clown show to promote disrespect.”

What should be an amazing occurence, is hijacked by the clown show to promote disrespect. So brave ????. Let ???? @uswnt and @allie_long_ know what you think about this disrespect in the comments ???? — Credit: @mikewishniausa • • • • • • @uswnt I know you gave a brief to the girls on proper flag etiquette. @allie_long_ , I know dragging it on the ground and throwing it down like it’s a piece of paper isn’t part of that. It’s not hard to hand it off and celebrate. Your coaching staff or trainers are there to take it. Damn Amazing disrespect for a photo op. Thank you to I think @kelleyohara for running in there and picking it up. #uswnt #worldcup #usopc #ussoccer #flag #oldglory #flagettiquette #unreal #notapieceofpaper #usparalympics #paralympian #thrower #shotput #power #speed #strength

In this day and age, disrespecting the flag has become a badge of honor among the more radical factions of the progressive movement. It’s become increasingly more common for left-wing protesters to be seen burning Old Glory at rallies.

You also hear tons of stories about how local governments are going all out to regulate how people can display the flag, something which is truly shameful in a land that is supposed to pride itself on liberty.

The flag is not just a piece of cloth. It is a symbol for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, of the rights handed down to us by God and protected by the Constitution.

The amount of blood that has been spilled by our brave men and women over the years is impossible to quantify. When someone disrespects the flag, they disrespect those brave souls who sacrificed everything to ensure our way of life could continue long after they’re gone.

It’s time for folks on the left to grow up and show some respect for those who gave more than they ever will in service to their country and the principles on which it stands.

Save conservative media!

Israeli Prime Minister Has Historic Meeting With Saudi Prince In Saudi Arabia

Published

on

In a historic first for both Israel and Saudi Arabia, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman held a meeting in the city of Neom, Saudi Arabia. This is the first time that a publicly acknowledged meeting between a prime minister of the Israeli government and high-level officials of the government of Saudi Arabia has ever taken place. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo attended the historic event, along with Israeli Mossad Chief Yossi Cohen. https://twitter.com/AmichaiStein1/status/1330773342295646210 via The Daily Wire: The meeting is the latest development in the ongoing growth of Arab nations rejecting their previous hostility toward Israel and joining in the effort to counter Iran, which they see as the gravest threat to peace in the Middle East. Those developments were fostered by the Trump administration, which rejected the dangerous Iran nuclear deal embraced by the Obama administration and instead concentrated on bolstering relations between Israel and the surrounding Gulf states. The astonishing rapidity of Arab nations such as the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Sudan all joining the Abraham Accords within three months in 2020 represented a historic shift in the Middle East, nurtured by President Trump. It’s not surprising that Israel and Saudi Arabia would go public with the meeting between Netanyahu and the Saudi prince; they must be worried that a prospective Biden administration would coddle the despotic Iranian regime as the Obama administration did. Of course, all of these great strides toward peace in the Middle East could easily be destroyed if President Trump is not certified to be the winner of the 2020 presidential election. Former Vice President Joe Biden has already made it very clear he will rejoin the Iran nuclear deal, which will no doubt strain our relationship with Israel and many other nations in the region.

Leader For Warp Speed Program Says First Americans Could Receive COVID Vaccine In December

Published

on

Moncef Slaoui, the head of the U.S. coronavirus vaccine program, made an appearance on CNN over the weekend where he said that the first doses of the coronavirus vaccine could be administered to Americans around December 11. “Our plan is to be able to ship vaccines to the immunization sites within 24 hours from the approval, so I expect maybe on day two after approval on the 11th or the 12th of December,” Slaoui said. According to Slaoui, the efforts to get a vaccine ready as quickly as possible and distribute it among Americans is not going to be derailed if there happens to be a change in administration. via Newsmax: “All decisions are made, the train is running. Whether one administration or the other doesn’t, frankly, make a difference,” Slaoui said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” The operation “has been isolated from the administration, from the political environment, and the political context,” said Slaoui, a former head of GlaxoSmithKline’s vaccines operation. Yet information on the program isn’t been shared with the incoming Biden administration, he said, consistent with President Donald Trump’s failure to acknowledge his election loss. “I have been informed that I should not be saying anything that’s confidential to anybody, including, you know, anybody that’s not part of the administration, and therefore, I’ll act according to what the legal requirements are,” Slaoui stated. To summarize, Slaoui is saying that if President Trump’s lawsuits and recounts turn out to prove that Joe Biden really is the rightful president, the change in administration will not result in delays for the vaccine getting out to the people. Hopefully, this vaccine will turn out to be safe and effective, allowing folks to choose how they want to protect themselves and their loved ones from infection in the future.
