Few things tug at my heart more than watching the children of fallen warriors honoring their departed mothers and fathers who gave all they had so we could be free. Gold Star wives are among the strongest women on Earth. They are also some of the most outspoken which is not surprising… heroes with incredible bravery tend to marry women cut from the same cloth.
Remember Gold Star wife Brittany Jacobs? You should. On Memorial Day this year, President Trump shared a story about a seven-year-old boy who he met at Arlington National Cemetery last year. That little boy is Christian Jacobs and his mother is Brittany Jacobs.
The pictures of President Trump hugging little Christian went uber-viral and I still haven’t forgotten them. Trump said, “Christian walked over to me with great confidence, shook my hand, looked me straight in the eye, and asked if I would like to meet his dad. He loved his dad. Marine sergeant Christopher Jacobs who died when Christian was just eight months old.”
If that doesn’t bring a tear to your eye, I don’t know what will. Christian’s father, Marine Sgt. Christopher Jacobs died during military training exercises in California in 2011.

President Trump continued with the story, “Christian looking as sharp as you could look, dressed in a beautiful Marine outfit — I’ve never seen a Marine look that good in my life, Christian — he wanted to look good, he told me, as a tribute to his father. And he led me to his dad’s grave. And we paid our respects together.”
Trump concluded the story with this, “It was a moment I will always remember. Christian, I want you to know that even though your father has left this world, he’s left it for the next. He’s not gone, he’ll never be gone. Your dad’s love, courage, and strength live in you, Christian, and as you grow bigger and stronger, just like him, so, too, does your father’s incredible legacy. So thank you both. That’s so beautiful. Thank you.”
Gold Star wife Brittany Jacobs is now back in the news after hearing about Nike’s deplorable actions using Kaepernick for their disgraceful “Just Do It” campaign. She’s issuing a huge challenge to Kaepernick by telling him to meet her and her son at Arlington National Cemetery.
“They can personally look in the eyes of my son and see what a dear sacrifice was made,” she explained, “and they can look around and see thousands and thousands of people who also sacrificed everything for something that they believed in.”
Jacobs’ sacrifice was the real deal, not some puffed-up, pretend sacrifice made by a wealthy former quarterback for attention. One that shows severe disrespect to his country, police officers, veterans and first responders.
From The Daily Caller:
“Jacobs told “Fox & Friends” host Pete Hegseth that Nike had made a poor choice in Colin Kaepernick, saying, “To me it’s upsetting. This is a man who knelt before the flag that my husband and that me and my son we love, it’s so dear to us. My husband did sacrifice absolutely everything for the flag, for the country and for all that it stood for. To see someone who knelt before it be able to say that he sacrificed everything, it’s hard. It’s sad. It’s not right.”
“They could have chosen anyone,” she continued, “and they chose a person who disrespected the flag. If they could look at my son for a moment, look at his eyes, they would see a dear sacrifice. There’s so many great men and women in this country who have sacrificed everything. Colin Kaepernick is not one of them.”
“Jacobs lost her husband, Marine Corps Sergeant Christopher Jacobs, in a training accident in 2011 — and her son Christian was famously photographed meeting President Donald Trump at Arlington on Memorial Day in 2017.
“Jacobs concluded the segment with a challenge: “I personally would like to invite Nike and Colin Kaepernick to meet me and my son at Arlington National Cemetery and see what a true sacrifice is, see what it is like to sacrifice everything for something that you believe in. And then they can personally look in the eyes of my son and see what a dear sacrifice was made and they can look around and see thousands and thousands of people who sacrificed also everything for something that they believed in.’”
Just do it, Nike and Kaepernick! We dare you to stand where so many warriors rest who sacrificed everything for their country and look into the eyes of that little boy and his mother and tell us that what you are doing is anything close to what Jacobs did. We’re waiting.

NFL Partners With Rapper Jay-Z To Co-Produce Super Bowl Show – ‘Will Inspire Social Change’
This will further destroy the NFL. A sport that Americans once loved. This will only be a disaster for the NFL.
Majority of America is beyond tired of this Anti-American garbage. So..continue on, NFL. You will continue to lose more and more supporters.
The NFL has announced that it has turned over a large portion of the decision making process for the Super Bowl halftime show, as well as other music and entertainment decisions, to social justice activist and rapper Jay-Z and his Roc Nation entertainment company.
Given the activist politics of Jay-Z and his wife, Beyonce, league entertainment choices will likely be heavily driven by “woke” motivations.
On Tuesday, the NFL announced that it was partnering with Roc Nation for the upcoming Super Bowl halftime show. But subsequent reports have noted that Jay-Z’s entertainment company will have far more responsibilities than just programming the 2020 Super Bowl.
According to ESPN, the league is handing over most of its entertainment decisions to Jay-Z, including, making him the co-producer of the Super Bowl.
The rapper celebrated the move:
“With its global reach, the National Football League has the platform and opportunity to inspire change across the country,” the rapper said in a statement. “Roc Nation has shown that entertainment and enacting change are not mutually exclusive ideas — instead, we unify them. This partnership is an opportunity to strengthen the fabric of communities across America.”
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell also touted the partnership:
“Roc Nation is one of the most globally influential and impactful organizations in entertainment,” Goodell said on Wednesday. “The NFL and Roc Nation share a vision of inspiring meaningful social change across our country. We are thrilled to partner with Roc Nation and look forward to making a difference in our communities together.”
The deal hands Jay-Z responsibility for “creation and distribution of music content across multiple music and streaming services, as well as consult and collaborate on the production, promotion, and marketing of live music events,” ESPN wrote. Continue Reading

U.S. Fencer Pulls A ‘Kaepernick’ On Medal Stand During Anthem – WATCH
These people are supposed to representing our country..and instead, are a total embarrassment. If you don’t love this country.. don’t put on that uniform. In fact, you are free to leave.
What a perfect opportunity for Race Imboden to defect. He should renounce his US citizenship, and say goodbye forever to the country he hates so much.
Men and women have died for our freedom. Precious blood was spilled for this country. If you hate it.. why are you here? Why represent a country you hate? Liberals are hate-filled lunatics.
These people don’t represent us!
A member of the U.S. men’s fencing team took a knee during the Star-Spangled Banner on Friday, at the Pan American Games in Lima, Peru.
Race Imboden an Olympic medalist and member of the U.S. men’s foil team, took a knee after his team won the gold at the games. He also took to Twitter to exclaim how ashamed he is of the United States, the Washington Post reported.
“Racism, Gun Control, mistreatment of immigrants, and a president who spreads hate are at the top of a long list,” Imboden tweeted. “I chose to [sacrifice] my moment today at the top of the podium to call attention to issues that I believe need to be addressed. I encourage others to please use your platforms for empowerment and change”

Imboden now shares a bronze with Canadian Maximilien van Haaster for men’s foil and was part of the U.S. team’s gold win in team foil at this year’s Pan Am Games.
Mark Jones, vice president of communications for the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee, issued a statement noting that Imboden violated the rules of the games with his protest against the United States.
“Every athlete competing at the 2019 Pan American Games commits to terms of eligibility, including to refrain from demonstrations that are political in nature. In this case, Race didn’t adhere to the commitment he made to the organizing committee and the USOPC,” Jones said.
“We respect his rights to express his viewpoints, but we are disappointed that he chose not to honor his commitment. Our leadership are reviewing what consequences may result,” Jones added.
Imboden’s teammates, Gerek Meinhardt, and Nick Itkin, both stood at attention during the national anthem. Continue Reading
