On August 31, Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Tyler Eifert will honor former St. Louis Police Department Captain David Dorn.

The NFL player will put an image of Dorn on his helmet, according to a report by Alex Triantafilou, the Hamilton County, Ohio, Republican Party.

“Got some very good news from former @Bengals player/current @Jaguars player @tylereifert that he will honor fallen police officer David Dorn on his helmet,” the former prosecutor declared on social media. “Always been a fan of Tyler’s and God bless him!”

According to the Washington Examiner, football players will be allowed to honor victims of “police violence and/or systemic racism” on their helmets during the 2020 NFL season. NBC Sports reported that players can choose the names of eligible honorees from an approved list. Some of the names include George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery.

Unlike many of his colleagues, Eifert defended his decision to stand during the national anthem back in 2016. He said it was to honor the armed forces.

“I stand because I want to honor the people putting their lives on the line for me on a daily basis in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard,” he wrote in the article.  He continued, “I stand because my cousin is a pilot in the United States Air Force, risking his life flying F-15s in active war zones. He takes pride in his job protecting Americans, a sacrifice that all members of every branch of the United States military willfully take.”

Back in 2016, Eifert wrote Pat Tillman’s name on his cleats in the first game of the season. Tillman gained fame for leaving his football career behind in 2002 and joining the Army. Tragedy struck two years later after he was killed in Afghanistan.

In contrast to his politically correct colleagues, Eifert actually loves his country and respects those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defending it. Hopefully, more players follow Eifert’s example and extricate themselves from the woke mind virus engulfing the nation.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
