WATCH: High School Officials Cancel National Anthem Before Game, So The Crowd Takes Matters Into Their Own Hands

Proud Americans still go out of their way to stand to honor the flag of this great nation.

We have reached a stunning new level of anti-Americanism in this country when a high school softball game opts to skip the National Anthem rather than risk offending.

Well, spectators at a California softball game, despite living in what is easily the most anti-American state in the Union, were not pleased when an announcer informed them there would be no anthem.

The Fresno Bee reports that during a Friday game between Clovis High and Buchannan High in the Central Section championship, the crowd was informed “There will be no anthem, let’s just play softball.”

Well, says The Daily Wire, “that didn’t go over so well with the crowd, especially on the Memorial Day holiday weekend, when Americans pay homage to all the soldiers who have fought and died to keep the United States free.”

So, clearly in no need of formalities to pay homage to this great nation and the sacrifices of those who have served, the crowd simply proceeded with the National Anthem anyway.

“Fan Tiffany Marquez said she was ‘shocked’ when the announcer said they weren’t going to play it,” the Daily Mail reports. “Within seconds, you could hear people in the crowd singing and the volume of their voices building. There I was, standing in the middle of a true testament to unity and patriotism.”

Bob Kayajanian of the Central Section told the Fresno Bee canceling the anthem had clearly been a mistake.

“The national protocol is the first game of the session you have the national anthem,” he said. “The games after that are just played. We got caught (off-guard). Both the teams turned to face the field and they all started singing the national anthem. They started to play some music and the people took that as the national anthem and they all started singing, which I think is obviously a wonderful thing to show off their patriotism.”

This is exactly why the NFL suffered for two seasons while their wealthy players disrespected the anthem and the flag in a misguided form of protest. Americans, largely, love their country and want to express it, and sports is one of the things that brings us all together, regardless of race, religion, country of origin, or political ideology.

How we handle our differences is what makes us American, and it’s great to see that even in California, proud Americans still go out of their way to stand to honor the flag of this great nation.

Senator Obliterates Dr. Fauci’s Holiday Gathering Advice

“We don’t need permission”!

If you follow the science, and the math, it’s beginning to become clear that the coronavirus pandemic is waning.  Again.

In the days before the Delta variant became the prominent strain of COVID-19, we were just about out of this whole mess.  Venues and restaurants were opening again.  People were beginning to gather at home or with friends.  When delta arrived, the ease retracted a bit.  The masks were a little more prevalent.

But now, if you simply look at the case numbers and infection rates, it is plain to see that everything is going to be okay.

This is what Florida Senator Rick Scott believes, as evidenced by his latest comments regarding the advice of Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL), chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), dismissed suggestions that Dr. Anthony Fauci can give or take away permission for Americans to celebrate the holidays with their families, calling it “insane that the government thinks it can tell people how to live.”

“We don’t need Fauci’s permission to celebrate the holidays with family. People are smart. They know how to make decisions that best protect their loved ones. It’s insane that the government thinks it can tell people how to live,” Scott said in response to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases chief’s recent remarks […]

Fauci had recently insinuated that gathering with people outside of your immediate home over the holidays may not be advisable, suggesting instead that people continue to socially distance from even their own family.

Psaki Sinks to New Low with Tone-Deaf Supply Chain Quip

Middle class Americans didn’t find it very funny.

Published

Americans the nation over are nervous.  They are suffering.  They are sick with anxiety.

The Biden administration has been an experiment in many ways, not the least of which is the idea that he was elected not for who he is, but for who he was not – namely, Donald Trump.  Biden was the Democrats’ stop-gap, and a reluctant one at that, and now we are all paying the price for giving this “anti-voting” whimsy.

The last 8 months have been brutal for many of us, and with a swiftly worsening supply chain situation beginning to impact local grocery shelves and Christmas shopping lists, things are only going to get tighter for the American middle class.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki finds it hilarious, however.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki cracked a joke Tuesday about the supply chain crisis affecting businesses and consumers across the country, saying it’s a “tragedy” some people may have to wait longer for their treadmill to arrive.

“The tragedy of the treadmill that’s delayed,” Psaki sighed during her daily press briefing.

Psaki was asked to address the supply chain disruptions across the country that have left store shelves bare ahead of the crucial holiday shopping season. One reporter asked why President Biden hadn’t acted sooner to address the crisis and whether his administration had failed to anticipate the issue.

The poorly-timed attempt at humor quickly faced intense backlash on social media, with users lamenting the elitist sentiment.

President Biden has suggested that port operations increase the length of their working day to 24 hours in order to expedite backed-up shipping lanes.
