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.

Social Media Giant Permanently Banishes Pro-Life News Outlet

So much for free speech.

1984

Our nation appears destined to fall into the clutches of a technological oligarchy, headed by the likes of Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg, and there is very little that can be done about it. These two men, who run Twitter and Facebook, respectively, have been ruling their public forums with an iron fist, hiding behind the concept that their private status is a workaround for the First Amendment.  Their gargantuan reach and influence has made it possible for them to act with impunity, steering the narrative on any number of subjects, from Donald Trump to the wonder of maternity. The latest affront to free speech comes to us from Facebook, where a pro-life news organization has been completely banished. Facebook permanently banned LifeSiteNews, a popular pro-life news outlet, for publishing “false information about COVID-19 that could contribute to physical harm.” As justification for unpublishing LifeSiteNews, Facebook cited an article posted on April 10, 2021, titled “COVID vaccines can be deadly for some.” Facebook said they erase Facebook pages that publish “vaccine discouraging information on the platform.” The site’s staff was livid. “This all comes down to another case of Big Tech silencing free speech on their platform,” said LifeSiteNews Marketing Director Rebekah Roberts. “Facebook has been silencing any voice that goes against their beliefs and agenda,” Roberts said. “Our LifeSiteNews Facebook page has been removed simply because we have shared reports of doctors, nurses, expert researchers, and even the former Pfizer VP speaking out against the COVID shots.” This is just the latest in a long line of Orwellian moves by these social media mavens, and may in fact be just another harbinger of something far more sinister to come.

CDC Readies Cruises, Complete with Human Guinea Pigs

Fingers crossed!

As the world prepares for its grand reopening, there are a number of high value industries that are eagerly awaiting permission from medical authorities to resume operations. First and foremost, there are the service industries:  Places like restaurants, bars, music venues, and sports arenas whose entire livelihood depends on whether or not people are being allowed to gather in public.  While many of these venues are now beginning to ramp up their capacity, there are issues bringing some of these workers back into the fold thanks to the enhanced unemployment benefits provided by the federal government. And then there’s the tourism industry, whose regulatory structure is far more susceptible to interference by government agencies. Now, after over a year of stagnation, it appears as though at least one facet of this wide-ranging corporate amalgam will be given a chance to sail on. Cruise lines can soon begin trial voyages in U.S. waters with volunteer passengers helping test whether the ships can sail safely during a pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention gave ship operators final technical guidelines Wednesday for the trial runs. The CDC action is a step toward resuming cruises in U.S. waters, possibly by July, for the first time since March 2020. A spokeswoman for the cruise industry’s trade group said the group was reviewing the CDC instructions. So, how will this work? Each practice cruise — they’ll run two to seven days — must have enough passengers to meet at least 10% of the ship’s capacity. Volunteers must be 18 or older and either fully vaccinated or free of medical conditions that would put them at high risk for severe COVID-19. The ship operator must tell passengers that they are simulating untested safety measures “and that sailing during a pandemic is an inherently risky activity,” the…
