NFL not expected to implement new national anthem policy this season

The NFL is not expected to implement a new policy on trhe national anthem this season, league sources tell ESPN, no matter how many meetings and conversations occur about the topic.

The new policy is going to be no policy — at least for this season, according to sources.

Too many people have stances too strong to figure out a compromise, although talks will continue on the topic.

Players began kneeling during the anthem in 2016 to protest racial inequality, police brutality and other issues. The protests have become a divisive topic of debate, and the NFL and players union still haven’t said whether players will be punished this season if they choose to kneel or demonstrate during the anthem.

The league passed a new anthem policy in May, but those new rules were put on hold to allow the league and union to further discuss the topic.

Now we’ll see how long the owners hold out before their franchises become priced to sell in a Dollar Store

Welcome to the warm fuzzy world of the Socialist State.

‘National disgrace’: Community fights back as California overrun by homelessness, human waste, needles

The specter of homeless encampments steadily expanding across the downtown streets of San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco – bringing with them a public health crisis – has one southern California community taking tough action to dismantle a two-mile-long camp just a short drive from Disneyland.

In a departure from the approach taken by other local governments in the state, officials in Orange County, Calif., have started to clear out the camp – by moving occupants and hauling away literally tons of trash and hazardous waste.

“It’s becoming part of the permanent landscape in those communities and there is no way we are going to allow Orange County land that is supposed to be used by residents to be occupied by the homeless,” said Todd Spitzer, who sits on the Orange County Board of Supervisors. [snip]

Approximately a half-million people in the United States are homeless, with California accounting for 25 percent — the largest number of any state, according to a survey by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Orange County has 4,792 homeless.

A Los Angeles Times editorial over the weekend called the problem in the city a “national disgrace.”

Spitzer blames the problem on two issues: legislation signed by Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown over the past several years that has eroded the penalties for drug use, possession and petty crimes to where police often don’t bother making arrests; and the change in a law so that treatment is no longer forced for drug abuse or mental health issues.

This week he wrote a letter to Brown, urging him to declare a state of emergency over the homeless issue and reverse previous forced-treatment laws.

“When I was a prosecutor, the law behind possession was a felony,” said Spitzer, a former deputy district attorney. “We would use the hammer under the law of a felony. We would force someone into treatment and upon successful treatment, the felony would be dismissed. Now look what we have as a result of ridiculous short-sighted liberalization of drug use.”

We should move the Millennial population to CA. They love this socialist crap; let them live with it.

This certainly will help Moonbeam sort out his wheat from the chaff.

Trump considers pulling ICE out of California to let the state learn

President Donald Trump said on Thursday that he’s considering pulling Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers out of California.

Why? Because he feels the state is giving his administration “no help” in targeting the violent MS-13 gang, especially in Los Angeles.

“We’re getting no help from the state of California,” Trump said from the White House. “Frankly, if I wanted to pull our people from California you would have a crime nest like you’ve never seen in California. All I’d have to do is say ‘ICE and border patrol, let California learn.’” [snip]

Trump and his administration have stepped up enforcement of immigration laws since he took office, so much so that Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris, both Democrats, sent a joint letter to the Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan asking for detailed information about how raids are prioritized and asking for communications regarding upcoming raids in the state.

“Diverting resources in an effort to punish California and score political points is an abhorrent abuse of power, not to mention a terrible misuse of scarce resources,” the letter said.

Homan responded in an interview with Fox New.

“We don’t conduct raids,” he said. “We conduct targeted enforcement operations. We don’t go into neighborhoods, knocking on a bunch of doors, looking for people that are different than us.” [snip]

Damn sure will help Moonbeam clarify his thinking.

Millennials are fattest generation in history

Millennials are on course to be the most overweight generation in history, with more than seven in ten carrying extra pounds before they hit middle age, according to the latest analysis.

Those born between the early 1980s and late 1990s are much more likely to be overweight or obese than their parents were, the research found.

Despite millennials being associated with diets such as clean eating, more than 70 per cent will be overweight or obese between the ages of 35 and 44. This would make them the most overweight generation on record. About half of baby boomers, born between 1945 and 1955, were overweight or obese at the same age. [snip]

Kobach, representing himself, to face ACLU over whether thousands in Kansas can vote

A federal trial that starts Tuesday in Kansas City, Kan., will determine whether thousands of potential Kansas voters can cast ballots this November when the state chooses a new governor.

And the lead attorney who will be fighting to preserve the law that could block those Kansans from voting is a man who hopes to be on the ballot: Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a Republican candidate for governor and the architect of the state’s proof of citizenship law.

“It’s kind of unusual for the person who is trying to set the rules of the election to also be running in that election. Some might say there’s something of a conflict of interest there,” said Dale Ho, director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Voting Rights Project, who will be squaring off in court against Kobach.

The law, which requires prospective voters to provide a copy of their birth certificate or passport, has been the subject of years of litigation. Supporters say it prevents non-citizens from voting, but opponents say it actually makes it more difficult for rightful voters to register. [snip]

Former Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, a Democrat, said in an interview Monday that she finds it “horrifying that we have in this state the leader of the effort to restrict and disenfranchise voters.”

“We are a state of inclusiveness and involvement and I think that the efforts of Kris Kobach, not just here in Kansas but around in the country, have moved in the exact opposite direction … all under the banner of rooting out voter fraud,” she said.

Ho noted that Trump began making unsubstantiated claims that millions of illegal votes cost him the popular vote in 2016 after meeting with Kobach, who had presented him with a plan to make changes to the federal voter law. [snip]

Kathleen Sebelius, now where have we heard that name before? Couldn’t have been involved in any fraudulent mischief and barratry during the Obama years.

This will work out as well as it did in Zimbabwe.

‘We are not calling for the slaughter of white people – at least for now’: South African parliament votes to SEIZE white-owned land as experts warn of violent repercussions

White South African farmers will be removed from their land after a landslide vote in parliament.

The country’s constitution is now likely to be amended to allow for the confiscation of white-owned land without compensation, following a motion brought by radical Marxist opposition leader Julius Malema.

It passed by 241 votes for to 83 against after a vote on Tuesday, and the policy was a key factor in new president Cyril Ramaphosa’s platform after he took over from Jacob Zuma in February.

Mr Malema said the time for ‘reconciliation is over’. ‘Now is the time for justice,’ News24 reported.

Mr Malema has a long-standing commitment to land confiscation without compensation. In 2016 he told his supporters he was ‘not calling for the slaughter of white people – at least for now’.

A 2017 South African government audit found white people owned 72 per cent of farmland.

Rural affairs minister for the ruling African National Congress party said ‘The ANC unequivocally supports the principle of land expropriation without compensation’.

[snip]
Freedom Front Plus party leader Pieter Groenewald said the decision to strip white farmers of their land would cause ‘unforeseen consequences that is not in the interest of South Africa’.

The deputy chief executive of civil rights group Afriforum said the motion was a violation of agreements made at the end of apartheid. [snip]

‘The term “expropriation without compensation” is a form of semantic fraud. It is nothing more than racist theft.’

The ANC is increasingly under pressure to speed up land redistribution to help shore up its support among poorer black voters ahead of the election next year. [snip]

The ANC must have gone as a group to see that movie “Black Panther” and decided it is TIME! South Africa shall become Wakanda and be great. Really? Black Idiocracy is more like it. It’s more like “Put down that flashlight, you don’t know anything ’bout electricity.”
