This is Courage

I wouldn't normally pay much attention to what a sports star did or said, and I have never heard of this brave young before, but I applaud Colin Kaepernick  for his courage in sitting out the national anthem in the NFL preseason game.  (I remember sitting out the anthem in the bleachers in high school, and kudos to Grady High in Atlanta, GA no one gave me trouble about it).

Oh, and don't be fooled by the MSM narrative.  He said A LOT more than they're reporting.  I'll just quote some of the juicier bits that'll make you want to click on that link above :

"Does the election year have anything to do with timing?
CK: It wasn’t a timing thing, it wasn’t something that was planned. But I think the two presidential candidates that we currently have also represent the issues that we have in this country right now.
Do you want to expand on that?
CK: You have Hillary who has called black teens or black kids super predators, you have Donald Trump who’s openly racist. We have a presidential candidate who has deleted emails and done things illegally and is a presidential candidate. That doesn’t make sense to me because if that was any other person you’d be in prison. So, what is this country really standing for?"

Bravo, young man, bravo.

Finally Some Media Speaking Out

I feel compelled to share the first and last paragraph of yesterday's incredibly damning WSJ article on the recent pay-for-play revelations surrounding Former Secretary of State Clinton and the Clinton Foundation:

"This is the week that the steady drip, drip, drip of details about Hillary Clinton’s server turned into a waterfall. This is the week that we finally learned why Mrs. Clinton used a private communications setup, and what it hid. This is the week, in short, that we found out that the infamous server was designed to hide that Mrs. Clinton for three years served as the U.S. Secretary of the Clinton Foundation."

and the last paragraph:

"What we discovered this week is that one of the nation’s top officials created a private server that housed proof that she continued a secret, ongoing entwinement with her family foundation—despite ethics agreements—and that she destroyed public records. If that alone doesn’t disqualify her for the presidency, it’s hard to know what would."

How refreshing to not have to read apologist nonsense.

For the full article, go here:

Oh, and just for the fun of it, here is Joe Scarborough's ruthless putdown of a Clinton spokesperson trying to guilt-defend the supposed good works of the Foundation.

That must have felt so good to say.  It was certainly so good to hear.
