Trump Goes Nuclear: NFL Will "Go To Hell"

It appears Moore's victory in Alabama last night has rekindled President Trump's more boisterous populist side - as many suspected it might - as he congratulated Roy Moore's "really great race."

In a brief discussion with reporters at The White House this morning, Trump pulled no punches urging "the toughest possible travel ban" and then took a serious swing at The NFL once again warning:

"I think The NFL is in a box, the only thing that is doing well for The NFL is the pre-game...


They can’t have people disrespecting the national anthem. The NFL has to change or their business is going to go to hell."

It appears 'change' is happening...

Just one week after many members of the Patriots kneeled during the national anthem, a new report indicates that they will all stand together as a team next time out.

Trump says Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones promised him America's Team will stand for the National Anthem: 'Jerry is a winner who knows how to get things done'.

Or this...


Interestingly, former Trump deputy assistant Sebastian Gorka, who backed Moore, said despite Trump backing the establishment favorite, the Moore victory strengthens Trump...

“But guess what happens – when Judge Moore wins on Tuesday, it will strengthen the president because now he’ll be able to go to the establishment GOP – to the swamp dwellers and say, ‘Hey guys, we are back on my agenda. This wasn’t worth it.’


So, the president is going to stay – he’s going to return to the Make America Great Again agenda. We just have to help him, and we’re going to do it from the outside by endorsing people like Judge Moore.

And that appears to be the approach Trump has taken this morning.

As he additionally noted,  he's "not happy" with Health and Human Services Secretary Price, is looking closely at his private plane use.

The rules, as stated on pages A62-63 of the league’s game operations manual:

The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem.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.

those links of slack jack's are worth looking at for a very different take on ww1 and ww2.  it's clear to me that israel wouldn't have been a real possibility without the concentration camps to make the world sorry for the jews and supportive of the idea of a state of haven for the jews.  that the jews would have been safer in europe after ww2 than they ever have been in israel is another conundrum.  if everything was in play as jack's links suggest, why not plan to take a piece of germany for an israel?  was the quasi religious belief that an israel must be on the same ground as historical israel, palestinians be damned, etc., so strong?  perhaps it was.9-11 was sure as hell a zionist project and it's pretty convincing that at least some of the support for killing jfk came from likud/mossad zionists, so perhaps some of the seemingly inexplicable events of the first half of the twentieth century have roots in zionist plans for a new israel, since the actual plan on the ground begins as early as the 1880's.don't dismiss this out of hand; it's a good mental exercise even if it's not entirely or at all true.  think for yourself.

slack jack's suggestion is that trump is, like hitler, a zionist double agent.  this is a pretty big step but clearly quite different from saying trump is a nazi, since in slack jack's argument hitler is the anti-nazi, fooling the real anti-jewish germans, etc. into supporting him so he can make europe unpleasant for the jews (encouraging emigration to the rather hostile israel aborning) and a world more sympathetic to the idea of a new israel where historical israel was.  and losing rather than winning ww 2.i think it is more likely that hitler was a zionist double agent than that trump is.  for one he, trump, says he supports israel in every which way.  and still the zionist media and deep state do not support him, indeed seem to wish to impeach him.  if anything he is making the republican party more hostile to foreign wars and by extension the deep state and israel.  the neocons seem to have migrated to the hillary clinton wing of the democratic party, while the sanders/tulsi gabbard/"left wing" of the democrats seems to edge closer to an israel boycott like the ones that helped bring down apartheid south africa.for another reason, there are so many ways that hitler seems to have sabotaged the german efforts to win ww2 that are really hard to account for: dunkirk, starting a second front with russia, switching from attacking the raf in the battle of britain to attacking english cities heavily defended by anti aircraft guns, etc.  not saying it's true; it's just more believable than trump being a zionist double agent.

Rep. Mo Brooks: ‘Terminate All Federal Government Support to NFL’ Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) said on Tuesday that the federal government should not financially support the NFL because of players’ disrespectful “take a knee” protests during the national anthem. “I believe we ought to terminate all federal government support of the NFL,” Brooks told Breitbart News following the Conversations with Conservatives event at the Capitol. “That would include the termination of any and all advertising that is done on behalf of the federal government — military and non-military — to the extent we do any.” “The same thing with any other professional sport that insults our country and our flag and our anthem as the NFL has done,” said Brooks, who is a member of the House Freedom Caucus.… "Yes we can!"

"They can’t have people disrespecting the national anthem. The NFL has to change or their business is going to go to hell."

Knowing Trump, he couldn't care less about respect for the anthem. His real plan backfired and his ego bruised when they defied (disrespected) him.

The culture war has been waged against Americans for a long time. Most of them aren't even aware of it. My guess is that the football players aren't aware of it. They 'protest' something that hadn't even happened - 'mass murder of unarmed innocent black men by racist white police' - 'Hands Up-Don't Shoot' A lie completely exposed.

Itn Germany & Sweden, the culture war is so bad that people have been fooled into welcoming an invasion of those who would destroy their culture and nation. They allow themselves to be assaulted and their women to be raped.

But that ain't happening in America. People are tired of the lies and the attacks on their long held values.
