BREAKING!! ESPN Just ATTACKED TRUMP!

Published

on

ESPN’s ratings have been declining over the last year. They have become increasingly known for their support of anthem kneelers as well as their implementation of anti-President Trump employees. Well, it seems like as much as things have changed in the new year many things have stayed the same.

ESPN employee Katie Nolan recently insulted President Trump by making disparaging remarks about him. Nolan recently appeared on Viceland’s talk show “Desus and Mero.” The thirty-year-old sports journalist called the President a “f—ing stupid person.”

She attempted to excuse her actions by saying she was on medicine for a case of the flu. Despite the fact that she said it on a talk show and not on social media like Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook, ESPN is none the less taking action against her. A representative for the network issued a statement saying,

We have looked into the totality of Nolan’s comments, they were inappropriate, and we have addressed it with her.”

Fox News reported,

The Nolan brouhaha is just the latest in a litany of bad press for the sports network. Longtime ESPN President John Skipper suddenly announced in December that he was resigning from the network due to a substance addiction problem. A bombshell report, also published in December, described the sports channel’s culture as one of hostility and sexual misconduct toward women. The report by The Boston Globe specifically named several men employed by or affiliated with ESPN as being subjects of harassment complaints.”

ABC reported,

Nolan, who was hired by ESPN in October after a number of years of hosting “Garbage Time” on Fox Sports, later tweeted that she “had the flu” during the interview. On Thursday, ESPN announced Nolan would host a pre-game show prior to an NFL playoff game on the network on Saturday.

Nolan’s comments come less than three months after SportsCenter anchor Jemele Hill tweeted in a reply to other Twitter users that President Trump is a “white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.” Hill’s tweet prompted a response from both President Trump and White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who suggested that Hill be fired for her comments. ESPN apologized for the tweets, and Hill was later suspended for a series of unrelated tweets. Following the Hill controversy, ESPN released a set of social media guidelines for its employees.”

While Nolan was warned by her superiors she was not suspended or fired from her job as a result of her actions. When Hill did something similar she was warned and then when she disobeyed the warning she was suspended. But there is no indication they would get fired.

The Washington Post had a unique take on it all stating,

In December, ESPN’s front-facing employees attended a mandatory meeting at the company’s headquarters in Bristol, Conn., to discuss the network’s future and review its new policies on social media and political commentary.

“ESPN is a journalistic organization — not a political organization. We should do nothing to undermine that position,” Kevin Merida, editor in chief of ESPN’s Undefeated imprint, told the crowd. “ESPN’s focus is sports. By and large we are not experts on politics, health care policies, terrorism, commerce — that’s not what we do.”

“Our audience is not looking for our opinions on the general news of the day,” added Merida, who was a longtime writer and editor at The Washington Post before joining ESPN. “And believe me, I get it. It can sometimes be difficult to control impulses or ignore trolls, but that’s what we’re called to do for each other.”

News outlets have been taking an increasingly commentating role in the last year since President Trump took office. Journalists have become pundits and commentators versus people who are meant to report on the facts. Sports outlets like the NFL and ESPN are taking on a political role even though their line of work has to do with athletes and sports and nothing to do with politics.

It is why people are watching ESPN and NFL games less and less over time because people are getting sick of it. They want people and journalists to stick to their lane, pick it, and stay there. However, they have been refusing to do that which is why people are getting upset. Quite frankly, these networks have nobody to blame but themselves.

We are now living in a world where the twilight zone exists. Pundits are reporters and reporters are pundits who do not understand what facts are. Which is another reason why people don’t trust the media anymore because they don’t trust it to report on the facts but instead their opinions. It is a shame and not what the free press was meant for.

Share if you agree that ESPN should hold their so-called reporters more accountable for the words that come out of their mouth.

Liberals Livid After Trump Makes Announcement About Term Limits For Congress

Published

on

By

Liberals have another reason to be livid after President Donald Trump just made a shocking announcement about term limits for members of Congress. This is going to make a lot of career politicians nervous.

Career politicians have plagued our government for longer than anyone can remember. While there are some good apples in the bunch, many self-serving swamp creatures try their hardest to stick around Congress in order to build personal wealth and maintain power. Unfortunately, the end result is stagnation and underachievement for what should be a productive highly-paid group of “public servants.”

Now, President Donald Trump is taking aim at the career politicians in the Washington, D.C. swamp with a new announcement on Twitter. The President’s tweet comes just a week after he met with freshman lawmakers to talk about term limits and how they could be introduced into legislation.

“I recently had a terrific meeting with a bipartisan group of freshman lawmakers who feel very strongly in favor of Congressional term limits. I gave them my full support and endorsement for their efforts. #DrainTheSwamp,” Trump wrote.

According to The Times, Trump held a meeting in the Oval Office on Wednesday, April 25, 2018, with Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA) and other freshman lawmakers from both parties to discuss the possibility of imposing term limits on federal lawmakers.

The idea of imposing term limits is not new to Trump. During his presidential campaign, he said, “If I’m elected president, I will push for a constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress,” during a rally in Colorado Springs, Colorado in October 2016.

Following the meeting with President Trump, Fitzpatrick said he is hopeful that new legislation imposing term limits on federal lawmakers could gain momentum in Congress. Fitzpatrick said that the President was receptive to the idea of introducing legislation for term limits. Fitzpatrick said that he also told Trump that it was during his time working for the FBI that he saw a direct relationship between an official’s time in office and their propensity for corruption.

“We were all taking the same position: We need legislative term limits,” Fitzpatrick said of those participating in the meeting. The Pennsylvania Congressman characterized the lack of term restrictions as a “root issue” in political corruption and said that his goal is to put a 12-year cap on the time any politician can spend in Congress. Fitzpatrick is hopeful that the President’s legislative team can refine the proposals which were presented during their meeting to increase the chances for success.

“I told the president we’re not going to let the perfect be the enemy of the good,” Fitzpatrick said. He emphasized that the process of implementing term limits is a “heavy lift” that requires a Constitutional amendment.

Fitzpatrick campaigned successfully in 2016 on a push for term limits and is ramping up his message in preparation for the upcoming election in November where he is looking keep his seat in the House of Representatives. Fitzpatrick’s Republican primary opponent, attorney Dean Malik, also supports introducing term limits for members of Congress. Malik has stated that 18 years should be the cap for federal lawmakers. “Term limits are essential to prevent the growth of an entrenched political class,” Malik said.

The following is a clip of Fitzpatrick talking about term limits during his previous congressional campaign in 2016. In my opinion, this guy has it right when it comes to term limits. Our government needs a thorough overhaul of crucial policies, and term limits are exactly where we should start.

Fitzpatrick is looking beyond his meeting with the President to continue his push for term limits and said that the other members who were present — representatives Jodey Arrington, R-Texas, Vicente Gonzalez, D-Texas, Mike Gallagher, R-Wisconsin, and Ro Khanna, D-California — plan to create a bipartisan bill and press the issue in floor speeches in the future.

When Fitzpatrick was asked if a large incoming wave of freshman Congress members could be advantageous, he replied with optimism. “I sure hope so,” he said. “It’s always hard to get members of Congress to vote against their own self-interests.” Now, with the support of the President, I think that term limits can be introduced through the hard work of people like Fitzpatrick who realize that 12 years is plenty of time for a federal lawmaker to stick around.

Liberals Freak As Pence Arrives At Border With Special Message For Migrant Caravan

Published

Liberals are freaking out after Vice President Mike Pence made a visit to the U.S.-Mexico border with a special message for the migrant caravan attempting to enter the United States. If you’re a “deplorable,” you’ll love every word of this.

According to Daily Caller, Vice President Mike Pence paid a visit to a group of Border Patrol agents on Monday, April 30, 2018. While Pence was visiting, he delivered a special message for not only the hard-working men and women who stand watch at our border but also for the migrant caravan making its way into the U.S.

“This is a time in the life of the nation where we are especially grateful for the tough job that your teams do on our borders and I want to assure you that President Trump and I are absolutely committed to seeing to the construction of a border wall but also reforming our immigration laws,” Pence said, according to the Desert Sun.

Next, Pence sent a message to the caravan of people who publicized their journey up through Mexico with the intention of entering the United States without regard for our laws. Some of those have reportedly begun the process of filing for asylum while others have been photographed climbing the border wall in defiance of our immigration laws.

“We’ve been watching with great interest the advance of the so-called caravan and are grateful for the efforts particularly over this weekend that our Border Patrol has been making and ensuring that those some 150 that are still part of the caravan are dealt with in a manner consistent with the law and that our laws are enforced,” Pence continued as he spoke during a meeting with Border Patrol agents in Calexico, California.

“A nation without borders is not a nation as President Trump has said many times, and the briefing we will have today, the remarks that I’ll share in a moment and the opportunity that we’ll have to be along that new section of border wall, give evidence to the fact that this is a President, this is an administration that is absolutely committed to border integrity and to the sovereignty of the United States,” Pence added.

I could not agree more with Vice President Mike Pence’s remarks in support of President Donald Trump’s position that a “nation without borders is not a nation.” In reality, the push from liberals to flood our country doesn’t stem from a lack of understanding about sovereignty. The left completely understands border security and the concept of lawful immigration. The problem is that those principles don’t fit their political agenda because they need illegal immigrants to help them build a new base of Democratic voters.

Democrats would be lining the borders with their own bodies as a human wall to keep out immigrants if they were sure to vote Republican. This isn’t about humanitarian efforts or an act of kindness for liberals, it’s about voting, and while they continue to push for open-borders, there is a price to pay.

Every year the taxpayers in our country foot the bill for the federal and state programs that provide housing, food, and education to illegal immigrants and their families. This tremendous burden has been placed on the backs of hard-working Americans by politicians who are only interested in keeping the flow of illegal immigrants coming into the country.

In exchange for carrying the burden of supporting millions of illegal immigrants, Americans have been given higher taxes, fewer jobs, and the nightmare of gangs like MS-13. These problems are just a few of the consequences that average Americans suffer.

It’s infuriating to see politicians push for destructive policies that promote illegal immigration while knowing that they themselves will never have to live in the communities which are negatively impacted. It’s time for Congress to honor the will of the people and fund Trump’s border wall.

After ‘Feminist’ Comedian Bullies Sarah Huckabee Calling Her Ugly to Her Face, Roseanne Knocks Her Out COLD

Published

AJR REPORTS: ROSEANNE BARR HAS HAD ENOUGH OF MICHELLE WOLF’S NASTY COMMENTS TOWARDS CONSERVATIVES AND DECIDED TO GIVE HER A FEW RULES OF COMEDY.

Michell Wolf was invited to the democrats White House Correspondent’s dinner to make the journalist laugh at the party. However, what started out as fun and laughter soon turned into criticism and lies.

Wolf’s initial attack was on Vice President Mike Pence and abortions. Michelle Wolf was joking about how everyone should try and have an abortion, and how you really got to knock the baby out of there… NOT FUNNY!

And this wasn’t even the most disgusting part of her attack. She then decided to bash two conservative women in Trump’s administration who were attending the White House Correspondent’s Dinner. Ms. Wolf sure made herself look like a complete idiot in front of the entire White House. Roseanne Barr had the greatest comeback to Wolf’s jokes…

According to 100percentfedup:

First, she wished that a tree would land on White House Communications Director Kellyanne Conway:

“You guys gotta stop putting Kellyanne Conway on your shows. All she does is lie. If you don’t give her a platform, she has nowhere to lie.

It’s like that old saying, “If a tree falls in the woods, how do we get Kellyanne under that tree? I’m not suggesting she gets hurt, just stuck.’”

Wolf saved some of her nastiest material, however, for White House Press Secretary, Sarah Sanders, who was seated next to her at the podium:

“And of course, we have Sarah Huckabee-Sanders. We are graced with Sarah’s presence tonight. I have to say, I’m a little starstruck, I loved you as “Aunt Lydia” in “The Handmade’s Tale.” (laughter from the crowd) Mike Pence, if you haven’t seen it, you would love it.

I actually really like Sarah. I think she’s really resourceful. Like she burns facts, and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smokey eye. Like maybe she’s born with it. Maybe it’s lies.

It’s probably lies.

I’m never really sure what to call Sarah Huckabee-Sanders? Is it Sarah-Sanders? Is it Sarah-Huckabee Sanders? Is it cousin Huckabee? Is it Aunti Huckabee-Sanders? Like, what’s Uncle Tom, but for white women who disappoint other white women? Oh, I know, ‘Aunt Coulter’.”

Surprisingly, some of the most biased journalists in the business expressed their disgust in Michelle Wolf’s “comedy act”.

Politco reporter Kyle Cheney got it right with this tweet:

Legendary female comedian, Roseanne Barr pointed out how liberals use women to attack and bully women, suggesting that the liberal press condoned Wolf’s embarrassing bullying of Sanders and Conway in front of a captive audience of liberal wolves. Barr tweeted: “they use women to attack and bully women.”

Johnny Argent used a great analogy about last nights vulgar comedian and the liberal journalists who clapped for her.

Barr then tweets the three rules of comedy. Although she didn’t address Wolf directly, it’s pretty clear who Barr’s three rules were meant for.

Here are Roseanne Barr’s three rules of comedy:
