Since President Donald Trump isn’t your typical Republican president ready to be the mainstream media’s punching bag he has done something other GOP presidents only dreamed they could do, but lacked the spine to do so.

NBC who is televising today’s Super Bowl, and in keeping with tradition also wanted to interview the President of the United States before the big game. But sources at NBC have now confirmed that their interview requests with President Donald Trump have been turned down. Although they have also confirmed that he still has an open invitation should he choose to change his mind. Don’t hold your breath NBC!

Now keep in mind that when Fox televised the Super Bowl last year, Trump did sit down with Fox’s now former superstar anchor Bill O’Reilly at the White House. But this year he doesn’t care to sit down with “Fake News” NBC or any of their hack partisan anchors. Rightly So!

Trump’s ongoing feud with the spoiled ball tossing NFL players maybe could have been a factor in the decision to skip this years interview. The President has taken the NFL to task for letting its employees run the show and the players who kneeled during the national anthem throughout this year for social justice causes that no one knows for sure are. The first Super Bowl Presidential Sunday interview began with George W. Bush and continued with Barack Hussein Obama in 2009.

Via Yahoo Sports:

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. – Perhaps you are one of the football fans who boycotted the NFL this season either because of player protests during the national anthem or because Colin Kaepernick, who started the movement, was never added to a roster.

Perhaps you even stuck with your protest and didn’t just claim you were done with the NFL only to quickly return to watching a dozen hours every Sunday from the Barcalounger in the corner.

If you are one of those dedicated protestors who are still holding out, Sunday is your greatest challenge.

Can you skip the Super Bowl? It’s not just a game between New England and Philadelphia, after all. This requires avoiding your brother-in-law’s annual party where everyone drinks a ton of beer. It means walking away from your neighbor’s vaunted seven-layer dip. It calls for a full rejection of American society … staying home while everyone else lives it up, even if it’s just for the commercials or Justin Timberlake.

Will President Donald Trump tune into the Super Bowl? Will Kaepernick?

“I believe the Super Bowl transcends,” said Mark Lazarus, chairman of NBC Broadcasting & Sports.

Probably, although there will still, undoubtedly, be some people who tune out for personal reasons. How many is the question. Some have already come back, if not publicly, then at least privately. Others will make a Super Bowl exception. Still others will realize that very few players even kneel (other than the weeks after Trump called them out) and none have done so in the playoffs.

To each their own.

Nielsen ratings have been down this season for the NFL, but Lazarus is not one who thinks the sky is falling. While he acknowledges social issues contributed, he also points out that it is but one contributor in a very complex mix, including technology, demographics and injuries/retirements to star players. He also cites NBC’s own data that suggests there isn’t that big of a dropoff, if any at all.

“I think more people are consuming football content,” Lazarus said. “I think there are some less watching the full game broadcast. What’s still underreported however, and Nielsen is working on it, is out-of-home viewing [mainly people on their phone], which adds somewhere between 5 and 10 percent to the overall viewing and that pretty much closes the gap.

“I think between that, the streams and linear, we’ve got similar number of people watching.”

Nielsen requires selected people to chronicle the shows they are viewing. It’s done on the honor system. How honest are these people? People tend to lie about pretty much everything, so, for instance, are the ratings for “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” actually much higher than the ratings suggest because people are too embarrassed to admit they watch? Conversely are the ratings for “PBS NewsHour” actually lower?

There were many people offended by players kneeling during the national anthem. There were many people who did not want politics to enter their sports entertainment. They all have the right to be offended and the right to allow that to determine what they do and don’t watch. It’s a free and rollicking country. However, social protests are very difficult to maintain over a long period of time. They require incredible discipline and America is an undisciplined country. Which is why they usually fizzle, quickly.

President Trump does many interviews. There is no reason why he needs to sit down and give the NFL, or NBC any more ratings. No Patriotic America Loving person should be watching the Super Bowl anyways until the NFL puts a stop to these asinine protests.

Although everyone in the US has the right to protest, you don’t have the right to do so when you are on the clock, especially when the people protesting injustice are getting an average salary of 2.5 million dollars, don’t you agree?

Please share if you are boycotting the Super Bowl….

Liberals Livid After Trump Makes Announcement About Term Limits For Congress




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




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





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:
