Man Waves Flag Supporting Cops Outside Nike Store – Check What Nike Did In Response 15Mins Later

Published

on

The Nike controversy is still in full swing after they made National Anthem kneeling Colin Kaepernick the face of their “Just Do It” campaign. Many, many Americans are disgusted and incensed by the move. But it’s not just sports fans who are making their feelings known over Nike’s radical move.

Mississippi’s public safety commissioner disclosed yesterday that state police will no longer buy Nike products, saying the athletic apparel maker is unpatriotic and fails to support those in uniform. “As commissioner of the Department of Public Safety, I will not support vendors who do not support law enforcement and our military,” Commissioner Marshall Fisher said in a statement Saturday to The Associated Press.

And Nike isn’t helping themselves either here. They claim to be all in on Kaepernick’s right to protest, even though it is seen by many as outright hatred for the police, military, first responders and America in general. It’s also seen as support for Black Lives Matter who donated $25,000 to a group that openly honors a cop-killer.

Nike’s support, however, does not seem to extend to people who actually support the police and who protest peacefully outside one of their stores located in Arkansas. They had a man who was exercising his constitutional right of free speech arrested. Yet again, another bad PR move.

Customers who arrived at the Nike store in west Little Rock, Arkansas were greeted by Jimmie Cavin in the parking lot in front of the store waving a think blue line flag in support of the police. That parking lot belongs to the store owner, so they had every right to warn Cavin and then call the police. That doesn’t make it look any better, however, or make it right.

The thin blue line flag is a flag that honors police. In fact, I have several shirts I wear with that graphic on them. “My priority is supporting law enforcement, firefighters and paramedics,” Cavin explained. He got his message out but he wound up chatting with the police over it.

Cavin sat in his truck waving his flag and didn’t get in anyone’s face over it. He did not cause a disturbance or any kind of problem at all. His crime was being in that store’s parking lot and doing something the owner did not approve of. That would be like me wearing my thin blue line shirt into a Nike store and them telling me to leave over it. Just sayin’.

Approximately fifteen minutes into Cavin’s protest, the police showed up to have a word with him. Not cool but predictable. The police were just doing their job.

From Fox 16:

“According to a police report, Cavin showed us, officers showed up after a store manager reported a disturbance.

“Of course, we chatted,” Cavin says.

“He realized I wasn’t doing anything wrong.”

“Cavin says, almost as quickly as they arrived, police left.

“So, Nike called the police on the guy supporting the police for supporting the police,” Cavin says.”

How ironic that Nike would call the police on someone supporting the police. You just can’t make this stuff up. I am not surprised the police left either. Good for them.

Cavin said while he doesn’t agree with Kaepernick, he supports his right to express himself. Obviously, this Nike store does not return that same sentiment to Cavin. Good to know.

“Now what better place to wave the flag than right here in front of the Nike store,” Jimmie Cavin said on Facebook. “It was lunchtime, so they were full and I know people were watching from over there,” Cavin said in an interview. “I mean, just an ole’ redneck sitting on his tailgate waving a flag,” Cavin says.

When reached, Nike claimed that they support anyone’s right to protest peacefully. Really? Because one of your franchise owners obviously doesn’t.

Cavin is a determined patriot. He’s not going to stop because the police were called on him. He is planning on showing up with his flag to support law enforcement as an ongoing endeavor. “I usually fly them on my truck too,” Cavin says. Cavin has shown up at several different spots in central Arkansas over the years waving different flags in support of law enforcement and first responders. I like this guy’s moxie.

HA Ha! McConnell To Call Vote On Ocasio’s Green New Deal, Schumer’s PISSED

Published

on

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, who on a good day looks like he’s sucking on a lemon, ripped into Republicans for planning to force a vote on the Green New Deal. They want everyone on record concerning where they stand for this insanity. Schumer doesn’t want the Dems pinned down and he’s really ticked at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for calling the vote. McConnell is trolling the Dems and I love it.

Schumer called the plan a “stunt,” a “cheap, cynical ploy” and “a game of political gotcha.” Considering Schumer wrote the proverbial book on dirty politics, he should know. Actually, it is a valid move to make politicians say they are either for or against the Green New Deal. “The Republican leader announced he’s going to bring up a resolution he intends to vote against,” Schumer said on the Senate floor. “Now that is what the American people hate about Congress — the pointless partisan games.” No sir… they hate the corrupt leftists tearing us apart.

Schumer isn’t the only Democrat calling foul here. They are terrified of being tied to a plan that would literally destroy the US and everything we hold dear. But most of the Democratic field running for the presidency in 2020 has already rallied behind the deal. Even so, Schumer, joined by colleagues on the Senate floor, said: “Bring it on.” He said Democrats “believe that we need to do something about climate change” and added: “Do Republicans?” Make no mistake, this has nothing to do with climate change and everything to do with greed, graft, and corruption.

McConnell promised a Senate vote on the Green New Deal last week. He wants Democrats to go on record. Nice tee-up for the 2020 race and reelecting Trump. “I’ve noted with great interest the Green New Deal,” McConnell told reporters. “And we’re going to be voting on that in the Senate. We’ll give everybody an opportunity to go on record and see how they feel about the Green New Deal.”

The Green New Deal was put forth by Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). She wants to transform our economy and way of life in an attempt to fight faux climate change. It recently came under scrutiny after revelations that a related FAQ document included passages promising a job to “all people of the United States” – including those “unwilling to work” – and suggesting air travel could be made obsolete. And don’t even get me started on eliminating cow farts.

“We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast,” the now-deleted document also read. Then Ocasio-Cortez and her minions tried to claim that the doc was concocted by Republicans. She lied her ever-loving head off.

From Fox News:

“But McConnell’s move to bring the plan to a vote on the Senate floor will be a key test for Democratic presidential candidates such as Sens. Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, who are running on the progressive platform in 2020.

“While backing of the far-left proposal will ultimately improve their liberal bona fides and their support from the Democratic base, the support of the plan will undoubtedly be the target of attacks during the general election.

“President Trump has already begun attacking the Green New Deal, claiming it would “shut down American energy” and describing it as “a high school term paper that got a low mark” during a rally Monday in El Paso, Texas.

“Corbin Trent, a spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez, said that McConnell’s plan to bring the plan to the vote will only show “just how out of touch Republican politicians are with the American people.”

“Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass, a co-sponsor of the plan, also decried McConnell’s move.

“Don’t let Mitch McConnell fool you: this is nothing but an attempt to sabotage the movement we are building. He wants to silence your voice so Republicans don’t have to explain why they are climate change deniers. McConnell wants this to be the end, this is just the beginning,” Markey said.”

This is an attempt to wake America up and show them what will happen if the Democrats seize control. Al Gore never went away, he just co-opted the millennials and power-hungry climbers in the Democratic Party.

As Wealthy Flee New York, Cuomo Warns Budget Problems ‘Serious as a Heart Attack’

Published

on

The wealthy have been fleeing the socialist policies of New York for some time now. The flight of those who have money is speeding up however just as New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is warning of budget problems. He announced Monday that state income tax revenues plummeted by $2.8 billion since he introduced his new budget plan last month which means spending will have to be massively cut in the state. He says he needs to reconsider spending on schools, healthcare, and repairs to roads and bridges.

Instead of taking stock of his failing fiscal policies, Cuomo, of course, blamed President Trump’s new tax plan for the state’s problems. In actuality, it is high taxes on everything that is choking the life out of New York and businesses there. Socialists are great at giving stuff away until they run out of other people’s money… that would be the wealthy fleeing the state.

From Newsday:

“Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on Monday announced a dramatic drop in state income tax revenue of $2.8 billion, which he says will prompt him to revise his 2019-20 budget and reconsider spending on schools, health care and repairs to roads and bridges.

“Cuomo, a Democrat, blamed the shortfall on a federal tax plan backed by Republican President Donald Trump. Cuomo said the law’s cap on deductions for state and local taxes at $10,000 was to blame and suggested it is, anecdotally, triggering high-earners to leave New York.

“At this point there is no doubt that the budget we put forward is not supported by the revenues,” Cuomo said at a State Capitol news conference. “It’s as serious as a heart attack.”

“Cuomo said he’s not certain what areas might need to be cut, but said the biggest spending areas now are education, health care, infrastructure and another phase-in of a previously approved middle-class tax cut.

“I fear it’s going to get worse before it gets better,” state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli said in a rare news conference with Cuomo. “It’s not all gloom and doom, but it’s a matter of very, very serious concern.” Tax revenues could rebound, he said, but he agreed with Cuomo that early indicators are not good.

“Cuomo has until mid-February to submit amendments to his budget, which came in at $175.2 billion when he unveiled it Jan. 15.

“The announcement also serves notice to the legislature, which for the first time in most of a half-century is controlled by Democrats.

“The Democratic majorities in the Senate and Assembly have several proposals to add to the budget. Cuomo will no longer have Senate Republicans as an ally for fiscally conservative measures. The Republicans lost the majority in the November elections.”

New York’s revenue problems can’t be blamed on Trump. I don’t blame those who are successful for hightailing it out of New York. They get to keep a pittance of their hard-earned income. Between state, city, and federal taxation there’s not much left when these thieves are done. Note to Cuomo… those wealthy you are fleecing are the ones that actually work and pay taxes.

Cutting taxes and enticing business to the state is the way to go, but liberals can’t seem to wrap their heads around the concept. In fact, you have Marxists such as NY Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and others in the Democratic Party who want to raise the top tax rate to a whopping 70% or more. They want to do away with billionaires too. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.

It’s a good thing Cuomo will never be elected president. He would turn all of America into New York. As The Federalist put it, “Not since John F. Kennedy was President has there been a Democrat that understood lower taxes on the wealthy helps the poor.” And that certainly includes Cuomo.
