Busted! NFL rules require 
anti-anthem players to appear on field
by BOB UNRUH
{wnd.com} ~ Who would have thought the National Football League – those teams with big guys who chase a little ball all over the gridiron – would get caught up in a fight over the First Amendment’s free-speech protections?... But it has, in an explosive way. With the one-sided display over the weekend demonstrating that some speech is praiseworthy, laudable and to be honored. While, in contradiction to the First Amendment, other speech is not. Specifically, speech that disrespects the U.S. flag or the national anthem is supported, while statements honoring the flag are not. The NFL’s operations manual, which, unlike its rule book, is not available to the public, states:“During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.” http://www.wnd.com/2017/09/busted-nfl-rules-require-anti-anthem-pla...

Lebron James, An liar-nObama Soros Agitator
Athlete, Falsely Labels Trump The Divider
{/rickwells.us} ~ Cleveland’s “Hands up don’t shoot, I can’t breathe,” Lebron James told a public gathering that he salutes the NFL and all of those who, like him, are hating on America... as if he has any experience with salutes. He does so with his fingers tugging on and playing with his right ear. There are other places we could recommend he stick one or two of those fingers if he finds his salute to be less than satisfying for him. With a slight but noticeable lisp, ‘Le Brown” commends the anti-white, anti-cop, anti-conservative forces that are bringing America together by tearing it down, by disrespecting our history, our culture, our monuments and our flag, by attacking white people and promoting thuggery... https://rickwells.us/lebron-james-obama-soros-trump/

Roger Goodell’s Priorities Are ALL WRONG!
by Jim Bowman and Jeff Dunetz
{lidblog.com} ~ Once again our President is taking sports driven heat through an anxious anti-Trump media when stating his approach to this Kaepernick inspired insanity... However, as has proven to be the case over and over, our President is totally correct because he has the right priorities. On the other hand, the priorities of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell are not only narcissistic but all wrong. Tell me what’s so oppressive in our society which justifies this National disgrace of millionaires disrespecting the country which provided them with the opportunity to get rich? Are there injustices by authority? Yes, but when the people in authority are the police, the questionable conduct is very rare and far between, and any solution to this problem exists far away from an NFL sideline... http://lidblog.com/roger-goodell-priorities-are-all-wrong/

Son of Hamas Founder Shakes Up UN Human Rights Council: "If Israel Did Not Exist, You
Would Have No One to Blame"
by PATRICK GOODENOUGH
{familysecuritymatters.org} ~ The U.N. Human Rights Council's perennial debate focusing on condemning Israel witnessed an unusual intervention Monday... a strong-worded statement in Arabic-accented English slamming not Israel but the Palestinian Authority. Speaking for less than 90 seconds, the speaker questioned the legitimacy of Mahmoud Abbas's P.A., accused it of jailing and torturing its critics, and called it the "greatest enemy of the Palestinian people." "If Israel did not exist, you would have no one to blame," he declared, concluding by accusing the P.A. of using the HRC platform "to mislead the international community, to mislead the Palestinian society to believe that Israel is responsible for the problem you create."... http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/detail/son-of-ham...

Finding Ourselves in History
by Tom McLaughlin
 
{tommclaughlin.blogspot.com} ~ To the old aphorism “The more you know, the more you know you don’t know,” I would like to add: “…and neither does anybody else.” None of our best historians understand all of history. They specialize. They study what happened in a particular time and place. They try to be objective in a Jack Webb-style: “Just the facts, Ma’am,” but that can make for dull reading. So they adopt the writing style of a storyteller. They humanize the main characters, illuminating both virtues and flaws. They make judgements. If they didn’t, they wouldn’t sell many books. If they’re also teachers, and many are, their students would fall asleep.

Like the late star of Dragnet, historians are trying to solve a mystery, but unlike him they’re not going to arrest a perpetrator. They may, however, tarnish a reputation here and burnish one there. Such may be their intent when beginning their research. The best historians try hard to be unbiased, but they know they’re human and will always fall short of perfect impartiality. Others only offer a pretense of impartiality.
Bias or fact?
 
Another human factor that may work to distort history I will call peer pressure. When historian colleagues all tend to interpret the events of a particular time and place in a particular way, there’s a strong tendency to go along. One might dare to offer a slightly different shade of meaning but to go further would risk being shunned or even attacked.

When I taught history I’d do what many teachers do and parse the word, suggesting it can mean: “his story.” as if there may be other stories offering different perspectives on the same events.  Feminists like to parse the word too, but emphasizing the “his” part as biased in favor of men, and that students might want to think of it as “herstory” as well.
Never was I taught history as a separate subject until fourth grade when Sister Charles Paul passed out the first history books at St. William’s School in Tewksbury, Massachusetts. By the end of September I’d read all of it and longed for more, but no more came along. I don’t remember getting any more history texts until I went to high school and had Western Civilization I and II. Then it was US History in junior year and that was it until college. Never did I sense a love of history in my teachers though. Many high schools gave US History classes to football coaches who had little or no interest in them.
After my risk of getting drafted declined in 1971 I dropped out of college, then went back in ’73 after deciding to become a teacher. For that I needed degrees and took a few more uninspiring history courses, so my interest in history had to be sated by my own research. After being horrified watching the Adolph Eichmann trial with my father in 1961, I learned all I could about the Holocaust. Then the Vietnam War affected everyone in my demographic as my best friend and others I grew up were sent there. Some died and all were profoundly changed, so I learned all I could about that as well. Thus did those two phases of history became my own specialities. 
D-Day, WWII
 
When students came to me with little or no historical perspective or interest, I devised methods to help them to fix themselves in time. Digital imagery became available in the ’90s, so I encouraged students to bring in pictures of their ancestors to be scanned. Then they digitally constructed horizontal timelines of the 20th century with pictures of their parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents across the top above the years corresponding to their lifespans. Across the bottom they put images of major world events occurring during those lifepans. Just as Vietnam had dominated my generation, World War II and the Great Depression affected the lives of their grandparents and/or great-grandparents. World War I affected their great-great-grandparents, and so forth. They could also import pictures of presidents who served during those lifespans.
Ellis Island
 
After that exercise, study of relevant historical occurrences became personalized. My hope was they would gain a deeper understanding of how world and national events can have enormous effects on the lives of ordinary people. Many students were thus motivated to question surviving ancestors about those events. Thus they’d fix family members in time and gain a deeper understanding of where they fit in too.

Last week’s column concerned fixing students in space by learning geography. My hope was they would leave my class having merged the two skills. They would be able to visualize where their ancestors came from, know when they came here, and even why. They’d be motivated to research further back in time as well as further away in space, and then realize how they came to be here — living and speaking English in rural Maine.

ALERT ALERT

 REVEALED: Here’s What Dirty Cop Mueller And His Team
Of Liberal Hack Lawyers Are Costing Taxpayers Per Month

The Mueller ‘Russia’ investigation was built on a foundation of lies and cost taxpayers $6.7 million within the first 5 months!
 
Thanks to AG Sessions for recusing himself, corrupt swamp creature Rosenstein appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller to target Trump and his team in what is the greatest witch hunt in US political history.

To add insult to injury, Americans are paying over $1 million a month, watching in horror as an innocent president is investigated yet the real criminals–Hillary, Lynch, Obama, Holder, Rice, McCabe, Comey et al walk freely.

The Justice Department released a report Tuesday detailing the cost of Mueller’s investigation from May 17th 2017-Sept 30th 2017.

In four and a half months, American tax payers have paid MILLIONS of dollars for Mueller’s hacks.

Expenses include:

Direct and Reimbursed Expenditures (note 1)
Personnel Compensation and Benefits (note 2) $1,709,597
Travel and Transportation of Persons (note 3) 223,643
Transportation of Things 156
Rent, Communications, and Utilities 362,550
Contractual Services (note 4) 157,339
Supplies and Materials 26,442
Acquisition of Equipment (note 5) 733,969
Total SCO Expenditures (note 6) $ 3,213,695

Mueller’s witch hunt also cost the Justice Department about $3.5 million on work attributable to the ‘Russia’ investigation, according to the DOJ report, totaling $6.7 million!

Americans are mad as hell!

We are paying millions of dollars to pay Trump-hating lawyers who are hell bent on taking down a president who won the election in an electoral landslide all because of a Hillary-funded garbage dossier!

One of the FBI agents was recently removed for sending anti-Trump text messages to an FBI lawyer with whom he was having an affair with.

Another Mueller hack was just revealed to have praised Sally Yates for defying Trump’s travel ban.

In an email obtained by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, Andrew Weissmann, special counsel Robert Mueller’s right hand man, praised then-acting attorney general Sally Yates for standing up to President Trump’s travel ban order.

We have been reporting on Mueller’s liberal dream team for months.
So have numerous other media outlets.

We reported in August that the entire team was Trump haters. Here is a summary of the Mueller team –
