  1. https://www.faithwire.com/2019/05/14/nfl-baker-mayfield-people-are-too-soft-after-school-drops-valedictorian-and-salutatorian-honors/ Nobody likes losing but competition is what brings out the best in people. The answer is not participation trophies. Dealing with losing can also be a good thing in life because we don't always win in life's struggles . Dealing with pain in losing many times only makes one stronger in the end. Glad to see our QB understands the importance of competition. Related: A big reason socialism fails is because the whole point of competition is to win the prize. Take the prize away and then the motivation to compete goes too. Our capitalistic system is based on those who work hard and smart and are willing to take risks with their own money (and many times putting their own nest egg at risk) will win the prize, the payoff of multiplying their investment. When you take that away to spread the wealth around or say "you didn't build that" and punish those in our system competing for the financial prize then what motive will people have to build a new factory or hire new employees only knowing they will be punished instead of rewarded for it?

    Baker Mayfield - competition makes us all better

    "These kids are staring at lifetimes of debt i think they get it"..... I don't think by and large they do get it and I am sure you don't. The deficit grew larger under Obama than any other president. It is primarily those of us on the right who have been giving out the message that this debt is an albatross around our children's neck. Admittedly both parties are too blame. The dems almost never speak about curbing the debt and support every new spending program under the sun while the republicans speak loudly about the debt when out of power but when in power they don't do much about the debt either. *** Tax payers will be burdened to pay for the open southern border the dems won't lift a finger to help fix.

  3. The Democratically controlled House of Representatives voted Friday 236-173 in favor of the Equality Act, which would require schools to include male athletes who identify as transgender girls on female sports teams. Eight (RINO) Republicans crossed party lines to vote for the bill, which had unanimous Democratic support. House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, a Democrat from New York, insisted the bill wouldn’t put female athletes at a disadvantage. (sure it won't Jerry) “Many states have sexual orientation and gender identity nondiscrimination laws, and all of them still have women’s sports. Arguments about transgender athletes participating in sports in accordance with their gender identity having competitive advantages have not been borne out,” Nadler said at a April 2 hearing on the bill. In Connecticut, one of the states to which Nadler was referring, two male runners have dominated girls’ high school track. A female competitor called the male runners’ advantage “demoralizing.” https://dailycaller.com/2019/05/17/house-equality-act-transgender-womens-sports/

    "The first step is acknowledging that ur little sissy boys who get doggy walked by the narratives of media entities who have an ulterior motive in forming ur thought process's." ************* Kinda like the liberal media pushing the phony Trump Russia collusion narrative for over two years that liberals ate up with a spoon... maybe you are finally getting it... Sure there are more important subjects in the world but this is a message board to cover a variety of issues and it is not a bad point to make to the young that not everyone gets a trophy in life.

    See the video I posted. Glad to hear the Cleveland sports system are not issuing participation trophies but across the country they are and they are more common than you think.
  12. We know liberal attorney's are coaching those coming across the border as to what to say so by (broken) law a hearing has to be set up and that is the problem. There is a a backlog of cases so that it could take years for the asylum hearing and in the meantime the asylum seekers are turned loose into our country and told to report for a future asylum hearing that most never show up for. These broken immigration laws are being gamed with the help of the dems who won't do anything to fix the broken immigration laws.
  13. Antifa Is The Paramilitary Arm For Democrats: Creating 'No-Go' Zones For Conservatives And Independent Media While The MSM Turns A Blind Eye To Journalists Being Attacked For years we have seen stories about Antifa groups setting up "no-go zones" in U.S. cities, which they call "Anti-Fascist Zones," in an attempt to prevent any event, lecture or speech they do not agree with, declaring anyone that thinks differently than they do Is a "fascist," and then physically attacking them.In January 2019, Big League Politics captured a screen shot of a now-deleted post by Jam City Antifa, which included a map with areas circled in red, claiming they were "Anti-Fascist Zones," and stating "fascists located in these areas are free engagement however seen fit." More recently, Independent Journalist Andy Ngo, who lives in Oregon, has been documenting the violent Antifa groups that have basically taken over the city of Portland. As he explains to Sky News Australia in the interview below, he has been attacked, his camera equipment destroyed, punched in the stomach, had burning chemicals sprayed on him and his crew, and Antifa groups have released his parents home address online. MSM IS THE PROPAGANDA ARM FOR DEMOCRATS - ANTIFA IS THE PARAMILITARY ARMWhat is just as horrifying as being attacked for simply reporting the truth of what is going on in Portland, is that Ngo had to go on foreign television to share his terrifying experiences, because the U.S. liberal mainstream media, the same people who claim they are endangered because President Trump simply calls them out on their push of fake news, completely ignores the violence perpetrated by Antifa. In some cases, CNN pundits have actually attempted to defend the violence, and in others, they have glorified it.Antifa attacks peaceful free speech rallies, America first events, conservative lecturers and speakers invited onto college campuses, basically anyone that promotes any conservative values, making them nothing less than the paramilitary arm of the Democrat party.Independent Media readers have already seen the overwhelming evidence that the liberal mainstream media these days are acting as the propaganda arm for the Democrat party, but due to the news blackout by those liberal media outlets on the increasingly frequent attacks by Antifa against free speech and differing opinions, their own audience has no clue just how dangerous Antifa groups are becoming.Make no mistake, the reason the MSM is glorifying and defending Antifa is because the supposed "Anti-Fascist," groups, which ironically use fascists tactics themselves, are the de-facto paramilitary arm for the Democrat party.The MSM may not be conspiring or coordinating directly with Antifa (although it is possible!), but they are in fact working with them by refusing to report on their attacks against innocent Americans.For example, recently it was reported here at ANP and other conservative leaning outlets, that the FBI is investigating an Antifa planned "armed rebellion" at the U.S. border, probing a plot they uncovered where Antifa members were arranging to purchase weapons from a Mexican drug cartel.A Google search for the story, first page of the search results, shows this was covered by Clarion project, The New American, Fox News, Washington Examiner, Daily Caller, Epoch times, Law Enforcement Today, Bongino.com, and PJ Media.Where are so-called mainstream media on this huge story?On the off chance that Google was just hiding the results of liberal media outlets reporting on it, I checked the NYT website, key words "Antifa Armed Rebellion," time range set to the last month because the story broke around April 30th, and found zero results. http://allnewspipeline.com/Antifa_No_Go_Zones_Paramilitary_Arm_Of_Dems.php

    ...And I cannot think of any president who has faced more obstacles than Trump yet he has an impressive list of accomplishments after just a few years...he didn't even get the typical couple of months honeymoon with congress other presidents have usually gotten.

    Actually for all the criticism of Trump losing a billion dollars in the 90's with bad investments he fought back well and made a nice recovery comeback. His critics want to point to the losses and that is fair enough but also give the man credit for his turning things around.

    The danger of red flag laws

    Thought this was a little related: Trump Administration Refuses To Sign The Fascistic Christchurch Call And We Should Thank Them When Asia Bibi was sentenced to death for blasphemy in Pakistan and when a few hundred “Easter worshipers” in Sri Lanka were killed, most of the West was pretty silent. There were no vigils and protests and irate editorials about hate. But, let a singular event take place in one of the many self-hating Western nations involving a favored minority, and, well, you have something entirely different. This is the case in New Zealand in the aftermath of the March 15 shooting at a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand, that killed 51 and wounded 49 “Friday worshipers.” The first step of the reaction was to disarm law abiding New Zealanders. And now that country’s Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, is trying to turn that strategy into a worldwide jihad against speech that has not been approved by right-thinking government appartchiks. The vehicle is the “Christchurch Call.” You can read it at the bottom of this post. Along with New Zealand, France’s Emmanuel Macron is leading the charge and signatories, thus far, include British Prime Minister Theresa May, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Jordan’s King Abdullah II, Amazon, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Twitter. It is just a matter of time until Russia and China sign on. The major hold out it the United States: The United States broke with 18 governments and five top American tech firms Wednesday by declining to endorse a New Zealand-led effort to curb extremism online, a response to the live-streamed shootings at two Christchurch mosques that killed 51. White House officials said free-speech concerns prevented them from formally signing onto the largest campaign to date targeting extremism online. But it was another example of the United States standing at odds to some its closest allies. … But the White House opted against endorsing the effort, and President Trump did not join the other leaders in Paris. The White House felt the document could present constitutional concerns, officials there said, potentially conflicting with the First Amendment, even though Trump previously has threatened to regulate social media out of concern that it’s biased against conservatives. … The White House’s decision against supporting the Christchurch Call drew criticism from some experts who’ve called for stronger regulation across the Web. Alistair Knott, a computer-science professor at the University of Otago in New Zealand, said the absence of a U.S. endorsement potentially would undercut the global argument for controlling how hate and violence spread online. “It seems insufficient to say that free speech prevents the U.S. from doing something about violent extremist attacks,” said Carl Tobias, a professor at the University of Richmond law school. “Congress should consider carefully crafted legislation that both protects core First Amendment interests and public safety.” This is one of those situations where the Trump administration has proven an adherence to constitutional protections and to individual freedom that no one would have anticipated in 2016. There is no legal reason for this document as “incitement” and “conspiracy” are already crimes. While one may not agree with bizarre political manifestos, whether by Unabomber Ted Kaczynbski or by Christchurch shooter Brenton Tarrant, the idea that they should be forbidden from posting their thoughts because they are dangerous should scare the living hell out of anyone with a pair of firing synapses. The world is full of “dangerous” books. Thomas Paine’s “Common Sense” was one of them. Machiavelli’s The Prince and Milton’s Paradise Lost have been declared subversive and banned an one time or another. More to the point, you don’t defeat bad or stupid ideology by banning it and giving it a cachet of being counter-cultural. You defeat it by forcing it into the open, by debate and by convincing people that the ideas are wrong. But no one in this group cares about what the Christchurch shooter posted on line. Their objective is to be able to refuse to debate issues they’d rather avoid…like the impact of unfettered immigration…by declaring the very question to be hate speech produced by some phobia recently discovered by a leftwing sociology professor. The agenda here is clear. This declaration seeks to give governments interested in limiting political debate and large multinational corporations with no loyalty but their bottom line and rent-seeking the ability to control and to criminalize what you say if your words don’t fall within a narrowly circumscribed range of behavior. That’s it. It is social control pure and simple. The Trump administration is right to refuse to sign onto this nonsense and to enable America to continue to serve as a beacon of liberty and free speech in a world that seems to view both those as something hostile to the political status quo. https://www.redstate.com/streiff/2019/05/16/trump-administration-refuses-sign-fascistic-christchurch-call-thank/

    The Rise of the radical left haters in America

    Excellent: "The radical Left in the USA acts like petulant children. Ever disdainful of our Nation’s rich cultural and historical and ethical heritage, and contemptuous of the profundity of the sacred Document upon which our Nation has been structured and upon which the foundation of our Nation securely rests, this radical Left, ascribing to the tenets of Collectivism, peevishly, presumptuously, presumes it knows better than the framers how a Nation ought to be structured, and how a Nation ought to be governed. This extremist left-wing Marxist element in our Nation exhibits no restraint as it dares to tamper with the U.S. Constitution that the framers, through their blood, through their selfless sacrifice, lovingly bequeathed to their descendants—this Nation’s proud citizenry." I have a lot more faith in the wisdom of the founders who set up our republic than most politicians today. I read where the dems are going to spend time reading aloud the Mueller report. Too bad they aren't reading the constitution, it would do them good. The biggest mistake and a huge contradiction in the principles laid out in the constitution was on the issue of slavery but I believe they were forced to compromise to get a union formed. The system they set up though would eventually do away with slavery.

    Baker Mayfield - competition makes us all better

    A little "heresy" from a Browns fan. If Johnny Manziel would have had the mindset of Mayfield he would be a quarterback for the NFL today. Manziel was hindered by lack of size but that obstacle could have been overcome with hard work and dedication. He had enough physical talent but fell short in mental determination. He wasn't that good where on just ability alone he was going to make it. If he would have spent some nights watching game films and in game preparation instead of being out on the town it would have made a huge difference. At least he would have had a fighting chance of being a starting QB in the NFL. Tex probably knows more about Manziel's ability as I only watched him play in college in a few of the big games but in those games I watched Manziel was impressive. Someone like Josh Gordon could have gone far in the NFL just on ability but I don't see that happening often in the NFL or in the quarterback position in particular which requires a lot of mental preparation.

    I wasn't a huge fan of Trump's before but I am now. Not because of his "charisma" but on policy he has been the best president since Reagan. Actually Trump does have some charisma and when it shows is when he is out among the people. He is at his best at a factory speaking with workers. For a billionaire born into wealth he has a way of relating to ordinary Americans. He is not as polished as Reagan but Reagan had years as an actor behind a camera in Hollywood as well as years experience as governor of California before becoming president. Trump may be more of a populist than a true conservative but I have seen many former never Trumpers now supporting him because he has done well as governing as a conservative. The democrat party has been taken over by the far left and I pray Trump wins re-election in 2020. From a liberal I respect for his intellectual honesty : Dershowitz: Nunes 'has no case at all' against Twitter https://thehill.com/homenews/house/434932-dershowitz-nunes-has-no-case-at-all-against-twitter Nunes should drop the suit.

    Maybe I will take the time to look into it or maybe not..got some projects going on today but Nunes is a lawyer and there has to be more to that suit than he was suing because people on twitter were saying mean things...that was settled law long ago when Jerry Falwell sued over being ridiculed and lost in court and Nunes had to have known that. Also even if Nunes was shadow banned which is possible that still would not be illegal. I don't know his motives but he is no fool, but I agree just after a superficial look into it he does not seem to have any kind of a case. As for discrimination against conservatives in general I would not object to at least looking into whether big tech has a stranglehold monopoly because they will not properly self regulate but the best idea I have heard yet is a watchdog group with ombudsman set up to handle consumer complaints and big tech to be answerable to...
