NFL reportedly invites Kaepernick to meet with Roger Goodell

Colin Kaepernick

Kaepernick doesn’t currently work for the NFL. Goodell is a pansy and the worst all-time leader of the NFL.

From MSN: According to this report from ESPN’s Jim Trotter, NFL executive VP of football operations Troy Vincent texted free agent Colin Kaepernick and invited him to meet one-on-one with commissioner Roger Goodell.

Per the report, Vincent’s text to Kaepernick also included an update on the ongoing discussions between NFL players and owners regarding social issues.

As of now, the league has not heard back from Kaepernick about meeting with the commissioner. ESPN’s Adam Schefter said last week that Goodell, Vincent and Arthur McAfee, the NFL’s senior vice president of player engagement, will be asked to surrender their cell phone records and emails as they pertain to Kaepernick’s collusion case filed against the league. They are set to be deposed as well.

Along with the NFL personnel having to turn over their records, other specific NFL team owners will also be asked to do the same.

Kaepernick alleges that the NFL has colluded against him in preventing him from signing with a team.

Kaepernick has been a free agent since opting out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in March. He made headlines countrywide after protesting the national anthem last season.

It should be interesting to see if Kaepernick takes up the commissioner on his invitation or just defers to the legal system to handle his grievance.

Crate & Barrel forms a partnership with libtard Reese Witherspoon

reese witherspoon

Cheater Hillary and Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon is a Hollyweird libtard that Crate & Barrel has chosen as their new spokesman. From Yahoo:

If you adore Reese Witherspoon’s ladylike taste and live for the modern luxury of Crate & Barrel, then thank your lucky stars, ya’ll, because a Witherspoon and C&B collection is coming your way in 2018. Witherspoon, under her Draper James lifestyle and fashion line, is partnering with the home furnishings retailer to codesign a line that will debut with a Spring and Summer 2018 collection.

The Big Little Lies star and C&B made their “home-ance” official by releasing a very-Reese campaign trailer today titled “Make This Season Merry and Just Right.” In the 30-second depiction of our holiday entertaining goals, Witherspoon expertly hosts guests at her home and graciously accepts their compliments. Little do they know, Witherspoon has been practicing her party-throwing skills…a lot.”

Witherspoon is a self-important actress who believes everyone should know her name.  In 2013, she and her husband, Jim Toth, were pulled over in Georgia. See Dr. Eowyn’s “Drunken actress Reese Witherspoon reveals narcissism of Hollywood“.

From Wikipedia:

“Witherspoon and Toth were pulled over after the car in which they were traveling was seen weaving across a double line on Peachtree Street.  Toth, who was driving, was found to have a blood alcohol level of 0.139 and was arrested and charged with driving under the influence and failing to maintain a lane. Witherspoon was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct for disobeying the arresting officer’s instructions to remain in the vehicle and arguing with him, asking if he knew who she was. Witherspoon pleaded no contest and was fined $313, including court costs.”

She later apologized and said she was “deeply embarrassed” after her arrest. She released a statement after the incident:

Reese Witherspoon said she is “deeply embarrassed” about what she said to police during the arrest of her and her husband during a traffic stop in Atlanta.

“Do you know my name?” Witherspoon is quoted as asking the state trooper who stopped the couple. She also said, “You’re about to find out who I am” and “You’re about to be on national news,” according to the arrest report.

The Oscar-winning actress released a statement late Sunday apologizing for her behavior to police that began when her husband, Hollywood agent Jim Toth, was arrested early Friday for driving under the influence of alcohol.

“I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said,” Witherspoon said. “It was definitely a scary situation and I was frightened for my husband, but that is no excuse. I was disrespectful to the officer who was just doing his job. I have nothing but respect for the police and I’m very sorry for my behavior.”

Witherspoon is also a proggie who supports the demorats and their policies.

Witherspoon recently held a fundraiser for Gavin Newsom’s gubernatorial campaign. Her neighborhood was peppered with fliers mocking Newsom and his affair. The “do not disturb” door hangers were created to look like something guests would find in a typical hotel room, though they read: “Do Not Disturb. Gavin’s Boning Your Wife. Gavin for Governor.”

Witherspoon also supported cheater Hillary Clinton.

Witherspoon donated money to cheater Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

 Witherspoon also said that meeting President Obama left her absolutely tongue tied.

Witherspoon endorsed President Obama in 2012.

Witherspoon also participated in the gun control, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, “Demand  A Plan to End Gun Violence” video.

Witherspoon also supports baby-butchers Planned Parenthood. After they were exposed for butchering babies, she defended Planned Parenthood saying, “No mother in the world wants her daughter to have fewer rights than she did. It’s up to us to make sure that every single girl in this world can control their bodies and their lives and futures.”

Keep this in mind when shopping for your home décor needs.

Tax dollars at work: Seattle to defend loud mouth socialist Sawant in defamation lawsuit

sawant always screaming

Socialist Sawant…always screaming about something.

Did you really believe that a socialist would cough up her own money?

From MyNorthwest.com: Seattle City Council President Bruce Harrell decided the city will defend Councilmember Kshama Sawant in a defamation lawsuit brought against her by two city officers.

The Seattle Times reported Thursday that in a letter Bruce Harrell explains his reasoning that Sawant “was speaking about issues important to her constituents.”

By city charter, Harrell had to decide if Sawant made the alleged statement “within the course and scope of employment.”

In the lawsuit, officers Scott Miller and Michael Spaulding claim they were defamed when Sawant falsely declared they had committed a “brutal murder” in last year’s fatal shooting of Che Taylor (read about that here).

The city also is representing Sawant in a separate defamation lawsuit brought by a property-owner who took issue with Sawant referring to him as a “notorious slumlord.”

Assistant City Attorney Joe Groshong has said he wouldn’t be surprised if total litigation costs exceeded $300,000 in both lawsuits.

Suicide: Seahawks’ Michael Bennett, others ask NFL to support social activism

michael bennett

Bennett (l) and his buddy Kaepernick. Turning the NFL into full-time social justice activism.

If the NFL goes full SJW for BLM, kiss the league goodbye.

From MyNorthwest.com: Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett is one of four NFL players that have sent a letter to the NFL requesting support from the league, general managers and owners for community outreach and social justice efforts on the part of its players. The players have also requested that the NFL recognize November as activism awareness month.

“We always have different months (when) we recognize different people or different issues in America, and we felt like that was a big issue,” Bennett told reporters Wednesday when explaining the idea. “We wanted to find a way to recognize it and be able to have that conversation (where) people can find information about things they want to get involved with.”

The 10-page memo, obtained by Yahoo! Sports’ Charles Robinson was reportedly sent to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in August by Bennett, Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins and wide receiver Torrey Smith, and former NFL wide receiver Anquan Bolden. The players requested the following of the league:

“To be clear, we are asking for your support. We appreciate your acknowledgment on the call regarding the clear distinction between support and permission. For us, support means: bear all or part of the weight of; hold up; give assistance to, especially financially; enable to function or act. We need support, collaboration and partnerships to achieve our goal of strengthening the community. There are a variety of ways for you to get involved. Similar to the model we have in place for players to get involved, there are three tiers of engagement based on your comfort level.”

Bennett has been an advocate for social justice issues and routinely speaks out about police brutality, racism, and inequality. This season, Bennett has chosen to sit for the national anthem, telling reporters the gesture is an effort to use his platform to oppose segregation and oppression. Several teammates, including center Justin Britt, defensive ends Cliff Avril and Frank Clark, running back Thomas Rawls, and cornerback Jeremy Lane, have shown public support for Bennett during his silent protest.

“I don’t know what the chances are (that the league accepts our proposal),” Bennett said. “Hopefully, the chances are 100 percent, but we’ll see. It takes a lot for a business or organization to get behind certain issues, and we’re hoping to keep pushing it to see if we can ever get to that place where we can be comfortable with talking about the issues that are going on around the country.”

NFL player Michael Bennett claims racial profiling by LVPD…omits a few details from his story

michael bennett

Bennett (l) and his buddy Kaepernick.

I’ve told you about this NFL player before. He’s writing a book entitled, Things That Make White People Uncomfortable (due out next year) and he won’t stand for the national anthem until he “feels like everything is equal.”

This past Wednesday he went public with an incident he had with the Las Vegas Police Department in August. We know there are two sides to every story yet it’s quite interesting that Mr. Bennett omitted a couple important details from his story. Read on…

From MyNorthwest.com: Michael Bennett addressed reporters Wednesday afternoon, hours after he posted an open letter to Twitter detailing a disturbing encounter with Las Vegas police during which he was forcefully held to the ground and handcuffed by an officer.

(From Bennett’s Twitter post: ““A police officer ordered me to get on the ground,” Bennett wrote. “As I laid on the ground, complying with his commands to not move, he placed  his gun near my head and warned me that if I moved he would ‘blow my (expletive) head off’.”)

“A lot of people of color have dealt with this before,” Bennett said. “And I hate that it happened to me, but I’m lucky to be in the situation to have the platform to continuously speak on injustice.”

Bennett said he told his family, teammates and head coach Pete Carroll about the incident after it happened in late August. After seeking advice about how to handle it, Bennett ultimately decided to make a public statement.

“There’s a lot of people who experience what I experienced in that moment,” Bennett said. “And they’re not here to tell their story.

“It’s an emotional moment for me. I know a lot of people are like, ‘Oh, did he want this on himself?’ I didn’t ask for this moment. It just happened to be me… any moment, I could have made the wrong decision. Whether move or (make the officer feel) like I was resisting or doing something wrong, and (the Seahawks) would be wearing… the patch with the No. 72 on it.”

A clearly emotional Bennett stood at the podium at Seahawks headquarters in Renton and fielded questions for nearly seven minutes before pausing during a question about his family.

The question was about a statement he made last year about being a black man in America – how even great accomplishments or fame cannot protect or make people of color immune from racism, racial profiling or police brutality.

“I try to tell my daughters every single day that they matter, and that…” Bennett said, before quietly walking out of the auditorium.

Cornerback Richard Sherman, who spoke to reporters shortly after Bennett’s exit, said Bennett’s own encounter is evidence in itself for the causes Bennett publicly supports — including his controversial decision to sit during the national anthem.

“Mike is literally sitting, taking a stand, doing everything he can to combat the same thing that he experienced,” Sherman said.

“And people are so worried about him sitting down during the national anthem that they completely miss that message a lot of the time. They want to be more angry at the action than the message. And that’s an unfortunate part of the world we live in nowadays. I wish that people would take it for what it is and make a difference.”


And what exactly did the Las Vegas Police Department have to stay about the incident that occurred in late August? From USA Today:

Las Vegas police said that there is no evidence to Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett’s accusation that he was racially profiled by the department during an incident outside a casino. 

Las Vegas Police Department undersheriff Kevin McMahill held a news conference Wednesday to respond to Bennett’s allegations, which he revealed earlier in the day.

“Many of the folks today have called this a incident of bias-based policing, police officers focusing solely on the race of an individual that they’re going to stop,” McMahill said. “I can tell you as I stand here today, I see no evidence of that. I see no evidence that race played any role in this incident.”

The officer who apprehended Bennett didn’t have his body camera on and it was not immediately clear why, McMahil lsaid. He added there are 126 videos from the officers that will be reviewed, and if those reveal that “any policies or training was violated, those officers will be held accountable.”

In a social media post, Bennett claimed he was singled out for “simply being a black man.” He added that “the officers’ excessive use of force was unbearable.”

Officers responded to reports of a possible active shooter in the casino around 1:30 on Aug. 27 after the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight.

While searching for an active shooter, an officer noticed Bennett crouched near a gaming machine. Two officers gave chase when the individual (later identified as Bennett) ran out of the casino and onto the strip. Both officers were armed with handguns, and the arresting officer did not turn on his body camera.

“You hear the officer approaching the door saying, ‘There he is.’ He gives chase, Mr. Bennett jumped over the wall, our officer jumped went over the wall immediately there after,” McMahill said. He said Bennett was detained for 10 minutes and released.

Bennett said he was not given “any justification” for his apprehension.


So Mr. Bennett is “crouching” during an active shooter situation? Understandable if he knew what was occurring. But if he didn’t know it might be an active shooter situation, then why is he crouching behind a gaming machine?

Even if Bennett didn’t know of the active shooter situation, why would he choose to run from a police officer? Guess it’s just one of those things that might make us white people uncomfortable.

Hypocrites: Lipslut wants to “do good and be bold”

lipslut lipgloss

Lipslut was started by three college students in California. They are selling the above lipgloss because “we aren’t too pleased with our current sociopolitical landscape, and the standards of the cosmetics industry in general.” According to them, “chances are you aren’t either. Rather than complaining, we’re putting our money where our mouth is.”

Their long-term vision is as follows:

We want Lipslut to a movement that you are genuinely proud to stand behind. With your help we believe Lipslut will become a household name for progressives and conservatives alike, albeit for different reasons. From there we’ll use our platform to shake things up for the better.

We plan to work with you through social media to offer a broad range of quality cosmetics, and to continue our philanthropy to help the causes you care about. Consider yourself a part of the team.”

They have raised $40,000 for Charlottesville victims by selling their “F*ck Trump” lipgloss.

According to their Twitter timeline, they support the Women’s March group and Planned Parenthood.

Bet the womyn who started Lipslut don’t care that one of the organizers of the Women’s March, Linda Sarsour, is anti-Semitic. According to Wikipedia, Sarsour has voiced support for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel, which has led to criticism from leaders of the Anti-Defamation League, a Jewish organization that monitors anti-Semitism.

In 2011 Sarsour tweeted, “I wish I could take their vaginas away”, referring to Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Brigitte Gabriel, leader of the lobbying group ACT! for America. She later deleted the hate tweet.

Sarsour also supports Sharia Law, which is not good for women. According to Snopes, she has tweeted the following in support of Sharia Law:

  • “I don’t drink alcohol, don’t eat pork, I follow Islamic way of living. That’s all Sharia law is.
  • Sharia Law is misunderstood & has been pushed as some evil Muslim agenda. Some Muslims r oppressors for sure.”

In July, the Women’s March tweeted their support for convicted cop killer Assata Shakur.

Shakur was a member of the racist Black Liberation Army, a black nationalist urban guerrilla group, who was convicted in 1977 of the first-degree murder, under New Jersey’s “aiding and abetting” statute, of State Trooper Werner Foerster during a shootout on the New Jersey Turnpike in 1973. She escaped from prison in 1979 and fled to Cuba, where she was granted political asylum.

Lipslut also supports baby-butchers Planned Parenthood.

Alveda C. King, niece of Martin Luther King Jr., said this in her 2012 March for Life testimony:

“In the ongoing travesty of the debate over whether abortion and infanticide should be condoned, a voice in the wilderness continues to cry out, “what about the children?” We have been fueled by the fire of “women’s rights,” so long that we have become deaf to the outcry of the real victims whose rights are being trampled upon, the babies and the mothers. Of course a woman has a right to decide what to do with her own body. Thank God for the Constitution. Yet, she also has a right to know the serious consequences and repercussions of making a decision to abort her child. Then too, what about the rights of each baby who is artificially breached before coming to term in his or her mother’s womb, only to have her skull punctured, and feel, yes agonizingly “feel” the life run out of her before she takes her first breath of freedom. What about of the rights of these women who have been called to pioneer the new frontiers of the new millennium only to have their lives snuffed out before the calendar even turns?

My grandfather, Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr., once said, “No one is going to kill a child of mine.” Tragically, two of his grandchildren had already been aborted when he saved the life of his next great-grandson with this statement. His son, King once said, “The Negro cannot win as long as he is willing to sacrifice the lives of his children for comfort and safety.” How can the “Dream” survive if we murder the children? Every aborted baby is like a slave in the womb of his or her mother. The mother decides his or her fate.”

According to abort73.com, among black women the current abortion ratio is 420*. That means there are 420 abortions for every 1,000 live births. Statistically, 30% of black pregnancies end in abortion (excluding miscarriages). Among white women, the abortion ratio is 121—which means less than 11% of white pregnancies end in abortion. The abortion ratio among Hispanic women is 178, or 15% of pregnancies. Even though whites make up 63.7% of America’s population, white women account for only 37% of its abortions.

*Their data comes from two sources: the Centers for Disease Control, “Abortion Surveillance – United States 2013” and Census 2010 Brief, “Overview of Race and Hispanic Origin.”

I guess supporting hate and racism is acceptable when they fit your cause and match your Trump Derangement Syndrome. How good and bold.

Bill de Blasio may be running for president

de blasio

Go for it Comrade Wilhelm. You ain’t got a chance of winning.

From NY Post (by Richard Johnson): Mayor de Blasio is putting out feelers to run for president, spreading whispers that Bernie Sanders, 75, and Elizabeth Warren, 68, are too old, sources say.

De Blasio, 56, will claim he’s the rightful standard bearer for the progressive wing of the Democratic party.

“He thinks he’s going to coast to re-election victory,” one Dem told me. “His people are sending out overtures asking where he should go next and whom he should meet on a national level.”

His jockeying could turn New York into a circular firing squad with Gov. Cuomo obviously poised to run; plus Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who has been relentlessly raising money this summer; plus State AG Eric Schneiderman, who has friends in Hollywood, where Norman Lear has hosted fund-raisers for him.

De Blasio — who goes the extra mile to please his campaign donors and is richly rewarded for his service — was recently granted $2.57 million in city matching funds for his re-election. Whatever he doesn’t spend on the mayoral race can be rolled over to the coffers for his presidential campaign.

“The rumor is, he is setting up fund-raisers across the country after the election,” a veteran political consultant told me.

“De Blasio is putting all his chips on the 2020 race,” observed one longtime pol-watcher. “That’s why, instead of staying in the city to comfort the children of assassinated police officer Miosotis Familia, he jetted to Germany to join the anti-Trump rioters who were smashing store windows.”

“He thinks he’s the inheritor of the Warren and Sanders legacy,” said a Democratic power broker, “but no one told Warren and Sanders they were dead.”
