Balitmore Ravens Fans Want Ray Lewis Statue Removed

Published

on

A petition to remove a statue of Ray Lewis outside of M&T Bank stadium in Baltimore has surpassed 59,000 signatures, past its goal of 35,000. Ray Lewis, widely recognized as the face and savior of the constant crime afflicted city of Baltimore, is under heavy scrutiny for kneeling with the rest of the Baltimore Ravens in their game in England on Sunday. Ray Lewis retired on top of the world when he went out in style with a Super Bowl victory in his last season with the Baltimore Ravens and it was the 2nd of his career. The tables have turned mightily against Lewis now because of his decision to get on his knees during our national anthem but stand for England’s “God Save the Queen.” This petition is addressed to owner Steve Biscotti, who risks losing many fans. Social media has showed many fans burning jerseys, memorabilia and even season tickets over the kneeling and disrespect shown to our nation’s flag and anthem.

Ray Lewis was critical of Colin Kaepernick telling him to ” keep quiet about social activism ” earlier this year. Lewis should have taken some of his own advice when being out on a world stage, representing not only the NFL but our country when he took the field in pregame ceremonies in England on Sunday.

Lewis is now trying to back track and explain himself saying, “I took 2 knees because I have a First Amendment right just like everybody else, and when I came out of that locker room I had a choice to make…I look at my fellow players, I look at these young guys, I’m not in the protest business I’m not into this whatever Donald Trump wanna say, I’m not into that mess, but if these young boys doing what they doing, then I got to meet them where they are.”

Lewis also tried to claim that he was praying, not kneeling, during the anthem, saying that he wanted to “simply honor God in the midst of chaos.”

This is all backlash from the strong comment made by President Trump, calling any player who kneeled during the anthem a “Son of a bitch” who should be fired. All NFL teams came out in some kind of sign of solidarity on Sunday, arm in arm and even with participation from owners. If all the social justice warriors who are fighting to remove statues of our Founding Fathers who created our nation, the removal of a statue of someone who disrespects our flag and anthem shouldn’t require a second thought. NFL owners better move swiftly and in favor of their fan base who even has subsidized most of their stadiums or this can be the beginning of the end of America’s most popular professional sport.

SHAME: Democrats Are Blocking Stimulus Legislation That Includes Second $1,200 TrumpBux Check

Published

on

Democrats in Congress are blocking a bipartisan $1.5 trillion stimulus package that includes a second round of $1,200 TrumpBux payments to Americans.

Leading House Democrats are saying the bill isn’t big enough of a giveaway, but they favor stimulus measures that would divert funds away from the pockets of everyday Americans to institutions. They want to bail out Democrat state and local governments, and are willing to block TrumpBux payments to Americans if they aren’t allowed to.

The House passed a $3.4 trillion stimulus package in May that was shot down by Senate Republicans. The latest $1.4 stimulus legislation has been presented as a compromise, after House Democrats in turn rejected a thin $500 billion stimulus package proposed by Republicans last week. That package did not include a second round of $1,200 payments, and Republicans are now willing to sign off on another TrumpBux payment in order to pass another round of stimulus.

The $1.5 trillion stimulus legislation emerged from the Problem Solvers Caucus, a group of 25 Republicans and 25 Democrats who emphasize bipartisanship and common ground. Aside from TrumpBux 2, it features $500 billion for cities and states, unemployment insurance of $600 a week, increased SNAP benefits and rental assistance.

Steny Hoyer and Nancy Pelosi are claiming the legislation doesn’t go far enough and that it “leaves too many needs unmet.”

Pelosi and House Democrats are insisting that Congress will remain in session until a second stimulus agreement is met, but in rejecting the Problem Solvers Caucus legislation they’re already shown they’re not open to a generous compromise.

Try asking everyday working Americans of all stripes and walks of life if they’re willing to wait or even go without a second $1,200 stimulus payment in order to provide a bigger bailout to states and cities that already engage in questionable budgetary practices to begin with. The Democrats are resolutely determined to avoid making people the priority in  a stimulus package, and will block stimulus legislation to do so.
