Yet Another Reason Why I Have Grown To Hate The NFL (Video/Pictures)

RGIII Enters NFL Event with A ‘Know Jesus’ T-Shirt On The Right Way, Leaves With It Inside-Out – Independent Journal Review

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was told by an NFL representative to flip his ‘Know Jesus, Know Peace’ t-shirt inside-out at a press conference over his dislocated ankle on Sunday, reportedly because it was not a Nike t-shirt.

Here is RGIII walking into the presser on crutches to discuss his injury:

………………….

Now, let’s see what he’s wearing when he takes the podium, in a before-and-after shot:

.

.
Now let’s assume that argument is legitimate. Then why were these policies not applied to Redskins teammate Ryan Kerrigan, who wore a non-Nike t-shirt to the press podium?

.

.
That would be a ‘Five Four Clothing’ t-shirt being worn by a Redskins player at the same press conference, according to CSN Washington. JP Finlay provides us with a better look:

Finlay reached out to the league and got a different story: NFL players are forbidden from wearing t-shirts with personal messages on gameday.

It’s unclear if the “personal message” that RGIII was displaying was the trigger for the message to turn the shirt inside-out or face a fine, given the background of being fined for wearing Adidas shirts to gameday press conferences.

If there’s anything we know from the past few weeks of spousal abuse and child abuse stories coming out of the NFL, maybe letting a little personal message like RGIII’s go would have been a wise thing to do.

Certainly, there will be cases where the NFL did not censor or fine players for personal messages on gameday coming out in the future. Another thing is likely – the ignored apparel or messages will be of the politically correct, NFL-approved kind.

(09/12/14) Edward L. Daley: Thank God For College Football…

…because I can no longer watch the NFL. I’m finished with the league and its insistence upon inundating its audience with socio-political claptrap at every turn.

For a long time now I’ve put up with a free agency system and salary caps that have resulted in teams losing many of their best players to rivals year after year. I’ve tolerated the ridiculous rule changes and the gradual feminizing of the game I love. But this recent inclination to preach to me and all my fellow football fans about political and social issues whenever some thug player does something immoral or unlawful in his private life, is the final straw that has broken this aging camel’s back.

I saw this trend toward increasingly inappropriate behavior coming several years ago when players on a number of teams began wearing pink shoes and gloves in order to help raise awareness about breast cancer. Now I ask you, who the hell wants to be constantly reminded of cancer while watching a sporting event? Anyone?!?

Look here, if you’re a multi-millionaire football player or team owner who wants to spend his free time supporting worthy causes, then God bless you! That is a noble endeavor, to be sure, but please leave your pet projects OFF THE PLAYING FIELD!

Now, you may well ask what cancer awareness has to do with the recent Ray Rice incident, or any similar scandal that has permeated the industry of late.

My answer is simple. It has nothing to do with Ray Rice’s behavior off the field in exactly the same way it has nothing to do with professional football games.

Get it?

As for those pretentious, hollier-than-thou sports commentaters who’ve decided that it’s somehow their duty to waste countless hours mindlessly chattering about things like gun violence and spousal abuse – as if your average 5-year-old boy didn’t know that it’s wrong to go around punching out girls – instead of talking about football, SCREW YOU TOO!

I can’t speak for every football fan in America, but I bet I speak for the vast majority of them when I say that I don’t tune into an NFL game to hear some barely literate ex-jock lecture me on the importance of treating women with respect, or analyze to death the psychological makeup of a guy who gets off watching dogs tear each other to shreds.

I watch the NFL Channel and other sports networks in order to see my favorite teams play ball, and occassionally get scores and injury updates from around the league. On the off chance that some key player gets in trouble and is suspended for however long that may prove to be, all I need to know is that it happened. What I don’t need to hear is anyone’s opinion about why it happened, how many times similar things happen every day in America, or the cultural significance of such events. That’s NOT NEWS! That, my friends, is egotism run amok. THAT is claptrap.

Instead of you so-called sports reporters gibbering like monkeys about the latest cause celebre, how about sharing with fans like me some inside dope about why the Pittsburgh Steelers can’t seem to rebuild their once-dominant defense in any significant way – or is that too freakin’ relevant to your job description?

Former President Ronald Reagan once said: “I didn’t leave the Democratic party, the Democratic party left me.” What he meant by that should be fairly obvious to most people, but I’ll try to clarify his sentiment just in case some of my readers don’t get it. What Reagan was saying is that he hadn’t changed substantially from who he’d been as a much younger man, but that an institution he once admired and had always identified with HAD changed in ways which left it fundamentally at odds with his worldview.

I, of course, am no Ronald Reagan, so please excuse me if my farewell to an institution that I once admired and identified with is somewhat less diplomatic in tone.

Today’s NFL is but an ever-fading shadow of its former self. It is increasingly more money-driven and arrogant than ever before, and it has completely lost touch with the fans for which it owes its very existence. The media personalities who surround it are even more clueless, but that’s hardly surprising considering the general nature of mainstream journalism in the 21st century.

Suddenly, the words “tits on a bull” leap to mind, but I won’t belabor the point out of respect for the few truly good news reporters out there – sports or otherwise – who understand what people actually expect them to do, and then seek to fulfill those expectations to the best of their abilities.

Now, getting back to the NFL itself, the thing that pisses me off as much as anything else about the modern league is the complete lack of loyalty exhibited by many of its players. These all-about-the-Benjamins bellends don’t give a square shit about anybody but themselves, so they can just go learn French for all I care.

Again, “tits on a bull”… but I digress.

In the final analysis, The National Football League has proved to me beyond all reasonable doubt that it is no longer worthy of my emotional investment or my kind attention.

So, go ahead and stick a fork in me, NFL. I’m done!

Sincerely, Edward L. Daley

Corruption Update: State Department Official Was Ordered To Purge Benghazi Documents Damaging To Hillary

Report: Clinton State Dept Official Says He Was Ordered To Purge Benghazi Documents That Could Be Damaging To Hillary – Weasel Zippers

.

.
What are the odds the MSM reports on Sharyl Attkisson’s bombshell report?

Via Sharyl Attkisson:

…According to former Deputy Assistant Secretary Raymond Maxwell, the after-hours session took place over a weekend in a basement operations-type center at State Department headquarters in Washington, D.C. This is the first time Maxwell has publicly come forward with the story.

At the time, Maxwell was a leader in the State Department’s Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs (NEA), which was charged with collecting emails and documents relevant to the Benghazi probe. [...]

Maxwell says the weekend document session was held in the basement of the State Department’s Foggy Bottom headquarters in a room underneath the “jogger’s entrance.” He describes it as a large space, outfitted with computers and big screen monitors, intended for emergency planning, and with small offices on the periphery.

When he arrived, Maxwell says he observed boxes and stacks of documents. He says a State Department office director, whom Maxwell described as close to Clinton’s top advisers, was there. Though the office director technically worked for him, Maxwell says he wasn’t consulted about her weekend assignment.

“She told me, ‘Ray, we are to go through these stacks and pull out anything that might put anybody in the [Near Eastern Affairs] front office or the seventh floor in a bad light,’” says Maxwell. He says “seventh floor” was State Department shorthand for then-Secretary of State Clinton and her principal advisors.

“I asked her, ‘But isn’t that unethical?’ She responded, ‘Ray, those are our orders.’”

Act Of Jihad In America Being Ignored My Mainstream Media – Right Scoop

.

.
19-year-old Brendan Tevlin was murdered in June by a Muslim man, Ali Muhammad Brown, who actually admitted to the killing and told police he did it to exact revenge on America for its policies in the Middle East:

PIX 11 – Brown allegedly confessed to all four killings, saying he was “just doing (his) small part,” according to court documents obtained by KCPQ. “My mission is vengeance. For the lives, millions of lives are lost every day,” he reportedly said. “Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, all these places where innocent lives are being taken every single day… All these lives are taken every single day by America, by this government. So a life for a life.”

Tevlin wasn’t the only one killed in Brown’s jihad against America:

Q13 FOX – [Brown] was charged Wednesday with aggravated first-degree murder by the King County Prosecutor’s Office for the slaying of Leroy Henderson, 30 in the unincorporated King County area of Skyway on the night of April 27.

Henderson had been shot 10 times in the back as he was walking home.

Brown had earlier been charged with aggravated first-degree murder for the slayings of Ahmed Said and Dwone Anderson-Young in Seattle’s Leschi neighborhood on June 1. He is also accused of killing a man, Brendan Tevlin, in the Newark, N.J., area on June 25, after he had fled Seattle.

All four were killed with a 9mm handgun.

The only ‘Brown’ our pathetic media has been interested in reporting on is Michael Brown. Yet we have an Islamic terrorist running around shooting Americans in the back because he hates America. This should be all over the news!

Also, where the heck is Eric Holder? Oh right, he’s more interested in finding cops guilty that investigating terrorism. This is absolutely so absurd because Islamic terrorism, as the radio host in the interview above points out, has come back to America’s shores and our Attorney General and our media could care less.

If it weren’t for Fox News running this story it probably wouldn’t be getting any national airtime.

Face Of A Killer: Father Who Shot His Seven-Year-Old Daughter Dead When Her Mother Rejected Islam Then Killed Himself Is Pictured For The First Time – Daily Mail

This is the first picture of a father who shot and fatally wounded his seven-year-old daughter amid a bitter custody battle with estranged wife.

Yasser Alromisse, 46, who was born in Egypt, wanted custody of his daughter Mary Ann Shipstone after becoming estranged with his wife Lyndsey.

After shooting his daughter, Alromisse took his own life inside a silver Toyota on the driveway of his ex-wife’s home in Northiam, near Rye, East Sussex on Thursday.

.

.

.

.
Yesterday afternoon, the little girl died in hospital after being gunned down by her ‘jealous’ estranged father.

She was shot in the head by Alromisse after his English convert wife rejected Islam and him.

The youngster had returned from school and was excited about celebrating her eighth birthday next week.

Her mother, Lyndsey Shipstone, 42, screamed: ‘He’s got a gun’ before her estranged Muslim husband shot Mary Ann and then killed himself.

She raced outside, gathered her daughter in her arms and laid her on a sofa inside.

Neighbour Helen Barber, 38, said: ‘I ran out up to the house and went in. Mary Ann was on the sofa. There was blood everywhere.

.

.
‘I couldn’t feel a pulse. I’ve done first aid before and she was showing no signs of life. Lyndsey was hysterical.’

Her husband, Stuart Barber, 46, added: ‘The car stopped. There were two shots. No one went to the car. Within minutes armed police turned up and surrounded the car.’

Miss Shipstone has an older son, Stephen, 21, who has autism and was with a carer when his sister was killed.

He arrived home 15 minutes after the shooting and was taken away from the scene by Mr Barber.

The estranged couple were involved in a bitter custody battle and Alromisse had spent a week trying to locate the home the family had moved to.

It is thought he also staked out their £300,000 house in his Toyota Rav 4 car.

.

.
Yesterday, Miss Shipstone posted the picture online of her daughter. Last night she was being consoled by her parents and siblings.

In a statement the family said they were trying ‘to come to terms with what has happened,’ adding: ‘We are today grieving the death of our beautiful and loving Mary.’

Miss Shipstone’s Facebook post came as it emerged the family had been hiding from Alromisse for several years.

The couple married in Liverpool in 2005 after Miss Shipstone converted to Islam, friends said.

But she later rejected the faith and left him, prompting a bitter custody dispute over the children.

Further legal action had apparently been planned in the past few weeks. While together, their daughter had been known by the traditional Islamic name Maryam. After her mother moved she started calling her ‘Mary Ann’.

Miss Shipstone had also started a relationship with a new man, who Mary is seen clinging to in another photograph uploaded on to a social media site.

Miss Shipstone married Alromisse after they met in Skelmersdale, her home town in Lancashire.

Having been a practising Catholic, she converted to Islam and quickly became devout.

‘She started wearing long robes and only eating halal food,’ a family friend said. ‘Her son Stephen began using the name Adam.’

The couple had a daughter named Yasmin Miriam in September 2001, but she died eight months later.

Mary was born in 2006 but according to former neighbours, social services had to intervene, with orders barring Alromisse from being alone with either child.

‘He used to hit Stephen,’ the family friend said. ‘Stephen used to say “He’s a bad man”.’ In a tweet posted on December 24, 2009, Miss Shipstone wrote: ‘We loved the snow. Our garden was amazing, covered in thick white snow. We can leave the house without worrying about my husband bothering us.’

Alromisse became a Community Safety Officer for Uttlesford District Council in Essex.

His job involved helping with projects to try to reduce crime. Police were last night at an address in Broomfield Avenue, Worthing, West Sussex, where Alromisse was thought to be renting a flat.

Detective Chief Inspector Jason Taylor of Sussex Police said: ‘We are trying to establish Mr Alromisse’s movements over the last few days and are keen to hear from anyone who may have seen or heard from him.’

KFC Muslim Employee Screams Insults At Customer Asking For Bacon – Conservative Infidel

.

.
A Muslim worker at a KFC restaurant in Sydney has been suspended after he was filmed screaming vicious insults and threatening to attack a customer.

The violent outburst happened at a Halal-friendly KFC in Punchbowl on December 26, allegedly after a customer became angry after being refused bacon on their burger.

The Punchbowl restaurant does not serve bacon or pork in accordance with Islamic law, and one employee can be heard saying “we don’t have bacon” before the other begins yelling.

“Don’t record me bitch!” he screams as he approaches the counter. “Don’t f—ing record me!”

The employee continues to yell and smacks the cash register display on its side, before other workers grab him and lead him outside.

“I’m gonna f—in break your head bro,” he says to the person filming as he is led around the corner out of sight.

CIA: Islamic State Has 2 To 3 Times More Jihadis Than Previous Estimate – Jihad Watch

.

.
So many misunderstanders of Islam! Where do they keep coming from? Why do they keep misunderstanding the faith whose teachings are so clear to non-Muslims like John Kerry and David Cameron? Why do the government or media elites never, ever ponder questions like these?

“CIA: Islamic State Has 2 To 3 Times More Fighters Than Previous Estimate,” by Caroline Lee Smith, Washington Free Beacon, September 12, 2014:

A new assessment from the CIA on Thursday said that the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant “can muster between 20,000 and 31,500 fighters across Iraq and Syria,” a CIA spokesman told USA Today.

The estimate is up to triple the previous estimate of 10,000.

“CIA assesses the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant can muster between 20,000 and 31,500 fighters across Iraq and Syria, based on a new review of all-source intelligence reports from May to August, an increase from our previous assessment of at least 10,000 fighters,” said CIA spokesman Ryan Trapani.

“This new total reflects an increase in members because of stronger recruitment since June following battlefield successes and the declaration of a caliphate, greater battlefield activity, and additional intelligence.”

The details about the increased number of fighters come as the Pentagon refines its intelligence on the area, including surveillance flights underway over Syria.

CNN reported that the number of fighters is also on the rise because it includes those freed from prisons by ISIL. More than 15,000 fighters from 80 countries have gone to Syria, a CIA source said. He said it was unclear whether the foreigners went to Syria to be part of ISIL or to fight against it.

Is that really unclear? Has there really been any significant number of reports about foreign Muslims going to Syria to fight against the Islamic State? A few Shia have gone to aid Hizballah against the Islamic State, but there is not much beyond that.

Chicken-Shit Democrat Senator Refuses To Debate Republican Opponent

Dem Runs Scared From GOP Challenger, Refuses Live Debate – Washington Free Beacon

.

.
U.S. Sen. Mark Udall is refusing to participate in a live debate in his home state’s capital.

The Democratic incumbent is running in one of the most contentious races this fall, but decided to skip on free air time at CBS 4.

Denver’s CBS affiliate has a long history of hosting live debates for candidates for U.S. Senate. This is the first time in four decades the station won’t be airing an “open and honest” debate to help Colorado’s voters decide the election.

Udall committed to four debates before the November election, while Cory Gardner, his Republican opponent, committed to 16.

Democratic strategist Penfield Tate said Udall’s refusal to participate in the major network’s debate could create backlash from voters.

“I think it will cause many a voter to ask why – why didn’t you go on tv and do the live debate,” Tate said. “This could be one of the cuts that combined with others, could be harmful.”

A new Denver Post poll Friday has Udall up four points over Gardner, but voters are still split on which candidate would be “most trustworthy.” Can’t see Udall ducking Gardner helps voters out with that decision.

IRS Commissioner To House Committee Chairman: ‘Whenever We Can, We Follow The Law’ (Video)

IRS Chief: ‘Whenever We Can, We Follow The Law’- The Hill

During another grueling hearing on the ObamaCare rollout, the head of the IRS tried to offer lawmakers an assurance about the soon-to-open enrollment period.

“Whenever we can, we follow the law,” IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told the House Ways and Means subcommittee on health on Wednesday.

Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas), who leads the subcommittee, immediately expressed his concern with the remarks.

“I encourage you to follow the law in all instances,” Brady said.

Koskinen, who was confirmed as head of IRS last December, has repeatedly faced lawmakers’ ire over the agency’s targeting of conservative groups.

Lawmakers spent a majority of Wednesday’s hearing grilling Koskinen and Andy Slavitt, HealthCare.gov’s fix-it man, on how they would verify that consumers were providing correct income information as they signed up for insurance subsidies.

Koskinen, who said he’s been meeting with tech and business staff every two weeks since January, said things are “on track” to verify income for all new enrollees.

Still, Slavitt acknowledged that the administration faces a “trust gap” in ObamaCare’s second year of implementation.

Rep. Peter Roskam (R-Ill.) cautioned against what he described as unchecked power given to the IRS under the healthcare law. He demanded to know how the Obama administration would prevent a “Lois Lerner 2.0 situation.”

“It seems to me that the IRS is just poised to go swimming in a big pool of money,” Roskam said. “Are these the same IT people that can’t find Lois Lerner’s emails or deal with her hard drives?”

Koskinen was asked if he defended Lerner, to which he replied, “No, I don’t know her.”

It was Slavitt’s first public appearance since the federal government announced last week that HealthCare.gov had been hacked in July. But just one lawmaker, Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.), prodded Slavitt about the security breach.

Price questioned why insurance company leaders told him they had learned about the hack from media reports. Slavitt disputed the claim, saying he had personally informed a representative from the insurance association about the breach.
