After on-field protests sparked massive backlash from NFL fans and President Donald J. Trump, the NFL has implemented a new National Anthem policy.
“NFL owners have unanimously approved a new national anthem policy that requires players to stand if they are on the field during the performance but gives them the option to remain in the locker room if they prefer,” according to ESPN.
Trump called for changing the policy numerous times, which caused a nationwide debate on whether it is appropriate to kneel during the anthem.
“Sports fans should never condone players that do not stand proud for their National Anthem or their Country,” he said in a September Tweet. “NFL should change policy!”

Teams will be hit with a fine if players refuse to abide by the new rule. The amount of the fine is unclear at this time.
“Two dozen NFL players continue to kneel during the National Anthem, showing total disrespect to our Flag & Country,” said Trump. “No leadership in NFL!”

Now, the NFL leadership has caved.
“We want people to be respectful of the national anthem,” said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. “We want people to stand — that’s all personnel — and make sure they treat this moment in a respectful fashion. That’s something we think we owe. [But] we were also very sensitive to give players choices.”
“It was unfortunate that on-field protests created a false perception among many that thousands of NFL players were unpatriotic,” Goodell continued. “This is not and was never the case.”
The NFL is the latest example of what has become an undeniable pattern: Betting against Trump leads to bad results.
TRUST THE MAN: Here’s A Growing Map of Deep State Conspirators Who Have Been Fired
President Donald Trump continues to solidify the American people’s position in the federal government.
Former FBI director James Comey is reeling from the FBI’s release of information pertaining to his exit from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The forms reveal a mad dash by the Department of Justice in the days after Comey’s spring 2017 firing to retrieve secret information from Comey’s office and to figure out the extent of what Comey was actually doing as FBI director.
Comey signed the Sensitive Compartmented Information Nondisclosure Agreement, which makes it all the more serious that Comey violated sections 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 13 by illegally handing over presidential briefing memorandums (page 5 and 6 of FBI release).

Comey is not alone in his government unemployment.
An interactive mapping project has sprung up on mindmeister to track Deep State conspirator cells that have been fired in the age of President Donald Trump.
