YOU’RE FIRED: Quarterback Colin Kaepernick is Finally Gone. What’s Your Response?

Colin Kaepernick was supposed to be an NFL star, but he ended up being a flash in the pan. When his lack of talent was exposed, he resorted to “protesting” to get headlines.

Now, even those days are numbered because Kaepernick is no longer under contract after parting ways with the San Francisco 49ers, via USA Today.

When Kaepernick first hit the scene, some pundits thought he was the future of the league. Along with the likes of Robert Griffin, he was going to change the way the QB position was played in the NFL.

As is typical with gimmicks, of which I have always said Colin was, NFL coaches get tape, and they expose them rather quickly.

NFL players are supposed to make progress as their careers move forward, but Kaepernick got worse with every passing season, sending the 49ers into the abyss.

After a major injury and some serious downtime, Kaepernick turned radical and went anti-police and pro Black Lives Matter, ultimately leading to his silent protest of refusing to stand during our national anthem.

When the press stuck the microphone in his face, he said all the popular trigger words like oppression and police brutality as well as calling Donald Trump a racist, proving he was scanning headlines instead of actually doing research and educating himself.

He was then an athlete with a voice who had just enough education to be dangerous but not enough to actually know anything — but plenty loud enough to cause significant problems.

I, along with many other people, questioned why he did not openly take this stance when he was a star in the league. With him literally warming the bench, he was now using his newfound “social awareness” to snag headlines.

Personally, I could not wait for him to go away because he was a no-talent, flash in the pan QB contributing to the divide rather than working to do something to help bring the country closer together.

Instead of wearing socks with police officers depicted as pigs, he should have been going out into the community working WITH the police to figure out how to fix the wrongs he claimed to be so passionate about.

Now, any team that decides to pick him up knows he brings more issues than talent with him.

Will he get a second chance with another team? I hope not because his 15 minutes of fame were more than enough for most of us.

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.
