WHOA!! US Hockey Players Just Pissed Off Entire Olympics With What They Wore On The Ice! HELL YEAH!

Damn RIGHT! ‘Murica!

Published

on

Unlike every other Olympics in history, the 2018 Winter Olympics has set a foul new tone that we hope doesn’t carry on through future competitions. The ratings of the games suffering because of it, as Americans are sick of athletes inserting divisive messages where they don’t belong. However, now, Olympians are being punished too for all the wrong reasons, proving that politics mixed into sports are here to stay. Not all Olympians are on board with that, as the US Women’s Hockey Team just proved when they came out on in the ice to compete and sent a huge message that royally enraged every racist hater at the Olympics, including the International Olympics Committee.

The US Olympic Committee already proved that what’s most important isn’t athlete’s ability, it’s diversity. They don’t like that there’s a disproportionate amount of white Olympians, to those of different races and sexual orientations. They’ve even compiled a list of qualifications for winning medals, which showed that Golds should be handed out in an affirmative action style, rather than on actually being the best in your sport if you’re white. While it seemed like the Olympics couldn’t have gotten further off track from the point of the competition being about unity and rewarding excellence, the International Olympic Committee just made it worse with what they ordered two white athletes on Team USA to do.

The US Hockey team has come under scrutiny before by the US Olympic Committee who said that there were too many white players on the team and needed to make it more diverse. However, now’s it’s what’s on the female goalie’s helmets that has landed them in hot water for being too American. In a time when a lot of athletes on Team USA are being anti-American and against our administration, it’s nice to see players being patriotic and proud to represent our country. The committee doesn’t see it that way.

USA Today reports:

USA Hockey is working with the IOC to see whether goalies Nicole Hensley and Alex Rigsby really will have to remove the Statue of Liberty from their goalkeepers masks.

USA Hockey spokesman Dave Fischer said on Tuesday “discussions are ongoing” after the IOC said earlier the images would have to be removed.

The IOC views the image as a possible violation of its policy against political symbols. The rule from the IOC Guidelines Regarding Authorized Identifications: No item may feature the wording or lyrics from national anthems, motivational words, public/political messaging or slogans related to national identity.

Hensley’s Statue of Liberty image is on the left side of her mask, and Rigsby’s is on her chin. Neither goalie played in USA’s opening 3-1 win against Finland. Maddie Rooney was the starter.

What is possibly “too political” about a patriotic symbol? The Olympics are supposed to be a place of pride for each athlete’s individual country and there’s nothing divisive about the Statue of Liberty, in fact, it represents the first sight seen be many immigrants who came to America to pursue freedom and achieve their dream – just like the Olympics. What is actually “too political” is the from the Olympic committees to ensure diversity among the athletes and not their actual ability, while putting a priority on fairness and equality. This isn’t just a decision the US Committee made on their own, they are forced by outside government to do so.

“The USOC and the governing bodies for each sport are required by law to submit a report to lawmakers every four years detailing the participation of minorities, as well as women and disabled individuals,” IJReview reported. “Additionally, the USOC requires the governing bodies to fill out an annual ‘diversity scorecard,’ as Maese describes it.”

“We wanted to see what that diversity looks like, how we could measure it, track it,” Thompson said. “That has had an incredible impact. I think it means we’re being transparent with our fans, so people can see, No. 1, it’s a priority, and, No. 2, we’re being honest about it. In some areas, we got some work to do.”

Ultimately, the IOC decided to allow the goalies keep the image of Lady Liberty on their helmets, but that doesn’t change the fact that it came under criticism in the first place. Furthermore, why was this image brought under question while all other patriotic and possibly political imagery present on all other athletes at the game not? If the Statue of Liberty was called into question for the reasons stated, then all other anthems and flags from around the world on uniforms should have been a problem for the IOC too. The real issue is that committee clearly sees America as an issue. Some of our athletes such as anti-Trump/Pence figure skater Adam Rippon, racist speedskater Shani Davis, and Trump-hating downhill skier Lindsey Vonn, have not helped in proving otherwise – they only perpetuate the problem.

WHOA! What 4 FL Cops Did During School Shooting Just Blew Entire Case WIDE Open!

Published

on

The investigation into how and why the Parkland, Florida school shooting got to the point where 17 innocent people were killed has left a lot more questions than answers since it began a week ago. It was initially revealed that the FBI had not followed protocol after receiving numerous calls from different individuals specific information that Nikolas Cruz was going to shoot up the school. It didn’t make sense that these credible threats went unaddressed, especially after proof was provided of the clear and present danger that Cruz was. Now, we’re learning what four Broward County, Florida deputies did during the attack, that blows this investigation wide open.

Over a few years leading up to the attack, Broward County cops were called on Cruz over 30 different times for legitimate reasons. Although the cops came out each time, none of these visits to the suspect ended action of any kind. There were more warning signs that necessary to do something about this individual, all of which were “ignored,” until it came to the fatal day they had been told was coming for months, if not years. As it turns out, this lack of action was no coincidence.

We previously reported about the on-campus a Deputy security officer who was the only person armed and Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, but when it came time to truly serve and protect the staff and students, he never went inside the building. Instead, Scot Peterson ran away from the scene and hid behind a cement pole as he heard the shots inside and victims screaming for their lives. However, Peterson wasn’t alone in his cowardly approach to the deadly scene.

The deputy said he did his duty by calling the cops to the scene rather than being the initial emergency responder as he was hired to be. Broward County police soon responded to his call, but four were as afraid as Peterson to go run into the building. Rather than saving lives, these four officers did something else, which has left survivors horrified.

The Daily Wire reports:

On Friday, CNN issued a shock report finding that earlier reports regarding Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy Scot Peterson — the armed school safety officer who apparently cowered outside the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while a mass shooter slaughtered 17 people inside — were accurate, but that Peterson wasn’t the only officer waiting outside. According to CNN:

When Coral Springs police officers arrived at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, on February 14 in the midst of the school shooting crisis, many officers were surprised to find not only that Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy Scot Peterson, the armed school resource officer, had not entered the building, but that three other Broward County Sheriff’s deputies were also outside the school and had not entered, Coral Springs sources tell CNN. The deputies had their pistols drawn and were behind their vehicles, the sources said, and not one of them had gone into the school.

So there were four armed officers outside the school. And none of them did anything, according to CNN. They instead waited for Coral Springs police to lead the charge inside.

What makes this worse, is that one day after the attack, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel had been reamed by Coral Springs City Manager Mike Goodrum over his officers’ failure to do their job and save people, which perhaps spurred the Sheriff on to go on a massive cover-up that has since divided the country.

When news came out about the resource officer hiding and not saving individuals, Israel publicly addressed the cowardly action, stating it made him sick. At this time, he knew his own officers had done the same and clearly ignore that fact, using Peterson as a distraction from his own department’s failures. This came a day after the sheriff had gone on CNN’s Town Hall in front of a weeping group of survivors and parents of the victims, blaming the National Rifle Association and gun advocate Dana Loesch for failing these students, when in fact it was his officers who did by refusing to go inside and save people.

It sure looks like all this talk of gun control, blaming the NRA and President Trump is nothing but smokescreens and mirrors to hide and deflect the overwhelming failure of law enforcement in this area. What’s truly sad is that this department gives the real heroes who wear a badge every day and run into harm’s way, a bad name they don’t deserve. Broward County police and the FBI failed these students, the staff, and the families who lost loved ones – not guns. Had these armed individuals used their weapons, lives would have been saved. That’s the message that these victims need to hear and share.

BREAKING: 24Hrs After WH Lockdown, Van Rams Front Gate – Authorities Release Chilling Plot Behind It

Published

on

Tensions toward President Donald Trump have been escalating across the country over the past week since the Florida school shooting, which the left immediately came out blaming the president for. Targeting all their rage and fear toward him for his support of the Second Amendment and insistence that this tragedy was caused by a mental health issue, has been their latest tactic at taking him down.

With a rise in anger and misguided rage, comes an increased threat level, which we’re seeing unfold around the White House after Secret Service made an especially alarming discovery. There has been no shortage of White House lockdowns since Trump has been in office, caused by mysterious cars parked where they don’t belong against the front gate, or suspicious packages found in this same area.

Now, 24 hours after another car left at the front gate cause the roads around the White House to be sealed off and the entire area evacuated, a van intentionally ran the fence in that area. President Trump was inside the White House at the time of the vehicular attack. The driver is in custody and authorities have released what’s behind these threats and today’s attack.

USA Today reports of today’s intentional ambush on the White House:

The U.S. Secret Service has arrested a woman who authorities say deliberately drove her car into a security barrier near the White House Friday around 3:30 p.m. while President Trump was inside.

The White House was on lockdown for about half an hour. No shots were fired and Trump, who had a news conference planned with Australia Prime Minster Malcolm Turnbull, was never in danger, according to the Secret Service.

Turnbull was also in the White House when the lockdown was initiated and left around 4 p.m.

The woman detained by the Secret Service is suspected to have intentionally crashed her vehicle into a barricade along the perimeter of the White House, an official with knowledge of the matter said.

With the suspect in custody who was reportedly in a different vehicle today than that which was found yesterday and ultimately cleared of an explosive threat, authorities were able to determine through questioning what caused this attack. The reason was the left’s worst nightmare as it’s the common denominator in shooting attacks, including the recent Florida shooting, and other senseless ambushes.

“Law enforcement sources told CNN she appeared to have mental health issues and is known to the Secret Service,” according to the Daily Mail. “The white vehicle remained at the scene afterwards with its rear windshield smashed. Its license plate was from Tennessee. The woman’s condition is not known, but police say no law enforcement officials were hurt.”

NBC News said that the woman’s name was not immediately released. There’s no word if or when that will happen. However, it’s become evidently clear within the past week that mental health is a major issue in America, leading to senseless attacks that could perhaps be prevented if the attention wasn’t misguided on gun control as the cause. At the root of all of these ambushes, threats against our president or innocent citizens calls for assassination, and more senseless mass assaults is a person suffering unaddressed mental illness.

The left will not blame the van for attacking the White House today, it was the mentally ill person driving it who did it. Is this because we can’t ban vans? Using their gun control argument after the Florida shooting last week, they should be pressing for control on cars as tools of homicide. Afterall, this has been terrorists latest tool in an attack. They won’t argue that this time since it doesn’t fit their narrative and the target was President Trump, who liberals dislike anyway and often speak freely about assassinating.

Every threat that’s caused the White House to go on lockdown in a little over a year has been from a deranged liberal who feels empowered to do these terroristic things. The left perpetuates hate against our president and conservative citizens and drives mentally ill people to do horrible things or at least threaten or attempt them. Maybe there needs to be control based on liberalism?

The numerous security breaches at the White House since the Trumps have lived there is not because of him, it’s due to the instability that Democrats instill in their liberal followers who are more than willing to do their dirty work.

It began with a series of “fence jumpers,” then, countless “mystery packages” found on the property. Now it’s escalated to people ramming barriers with their cars. One can’t help but wonder if all of these failed attempts are “test runs” for a bigger event that homegrown terrorist or others are preparing for to see what they could successfully get away with.

BREAKING From Florida: Gun Owners Being FORCED Against Their Will – NOT Going Well!

Published

on

In the aftermath of the Parkland, Florida school shooting, the immediate call for gun control emerged before the victims of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School were even removed from the building. The pushed increased as the media machine went into overdrive to promote it, despite not every victim supporting the idea as a solution for stopping shootings. The coverage has been constant, exclusively showing advocates of abolishing the Second Amendment, which seems to have been effective.

The fight against Americans’ right to self-protection is on across the nation but has just entered dangerous and exceptionally unconstitutional territory in the state of Florida. Reacting to people’s often exaggerated emotions about the issue, Florida Governor Rick Scott has decided to go against all gun owners in his typically pro-gun state and force them against their will in a sickening way that more than appeases anti-gun activists.

Despite Governor Scott admitting within hours of the shooting that the FBI had failed at preventing this tragedy by not responding to multiple reports regarding Nikolas Cruz and didn’t follow protocol, he’s since changed his tune and decided guns are to blame for this atrocity. As such, he just announced what he’s doing to take action against people’s rights to protection, rather than making the FBI pay for their overwhelming failure that could have prevented the massacre.

The Daily Beast reports:

In response to last week’s Parkland school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Florida Gov. Rick Scott announced a plan to require “all individuals purchasing firearms” in the state to be 21 or older, ban the “purchase or sale” of bump-stock devices, and prohibit sales to “violent or mentally ill” buyers.

In a break with the White House, Scott also said he would not support President Trump’s initiative to arm teachers with concealed-carry weapons, saying that “My focus is law enforcement… Let teachers focus on teaching.” He also proposed “a half a billion dollars for school safety and mental-health initiatives.” The state of Florida “can’t trust the federal process,” he said, and had to take matters into its own hands. Scott declined to ban the AR-15—the weapon used in the Parkland attack—noting “banning specific weapons is not going to fix this.”

This comes as President Trump doubled down on his support of concealed-carry in classrooms during his Conservative Political Action Conference speech Friday morning.

The age restriction being suggested is absolutely assinine since soldiers are trained and trusted with all manner of guns at the age of 18 to fight for our rights in war, but are denied one of those rights if they want to buy their own gun for self-protection at home. How or why should a soldier have to wait three years after entering the military to buy a gun they are given in service? Scott’s intentions to impose the age limit is forcing responsible people against their will and their God-given right, to wait years before being able to legally protect themselves. Meanwhile, anyone with violent intentions will still arm themselves through illegal means, because they don’t care about laws.

Gun control can’t collect all the firearms already out in America, which is to the tune of one gun for every man, woman, and child. Nikolas Cruz was on a mission and would have gotten a gun to execute his plan regardless of age or ability to buy one legally. Chicago, with the strictest gun laws in the nation, proves this to be the case for criminals as the number one city in America with the most gun-related deaths.

Nikolas Cruz didn’t use a bump stock to commit mass murder so to ban that now has nothing to do with this massacre and everything to do with giving into liberals who know nothing about bump stocks but have been complaining about them since the Las Vegas massacre in October. Gun enthusiast with no ill intention may be forced against their will to accept this rule if they wanted one but won’t be able to get one.

This was a surprising move for Scott who seems to be caving to the constant noise from the left who are insistent on blaming an object and not solving the real problem causing these atrocities. However, while the governor is giving in a little to the left, he did offer some consolation to conservatives. He didn’t ban AR-15’s, which liberals have commonly and incorrectly claim are automatic/machine guns. His proposal to fund school safety and mental health initiatives is a start to keeping our schools safer since it addresses the true cause of these killings. Every school needs armed guards since the mental health in would-be shooters is difficult to address effectively by means of prevention. As such, schools and individuals should be allowed to protect themselves against any threat to life they’re faced with.
