The President and First Lady have no shortage of critics. Unfortunately, not everyone in the United States is satisfied with the President, or his idea of how to make America great again. No matter what the First Family does, the media and the alt-left will promote the idea that he’s tearing the nation apart, piece by piece.
A favorite pastime of the media is to insinuate that there are problems between the President and First Lady. It seems to be completely inconceivable that they could have a healthy relationship, given their age difference and the fact that First Lady Melania Trump used to be very much in the public eye with her modeling career. The rumors constantly fly about them, and never more than when they are overseas.
Because the couple tends to employ the strategy that many hands make light work and split up their diplomatic tasks, which isn’t uncommon in these situations, the media will always spin it as if it’s because they don’t want to be together. The lunacy of saying that any time a married couple isn’t in one another’s presence it means they’re having marital problems seems to be lost on the left, who is looking desperately for any reason to throw shade at the couple.
However, the President was kind enough to share with the world why he and Melania choose different places to spend the last couple of days, and it’s a really great reason indeed. While the President is stuck in some stuffy meetings, taking care of business, the First Lady took a trip to see some of the greatest things China has to offer, and also to visit the troops in Alaska:

The First Lady also made good use of her Twitter account to show the amazing time she had while in Asia. Her photos show both animals and humans in her path were met with kindness and respect.

While the First Couple had both a productive and enjoyable trip through Asia, as always, their first priority is with Americans, both at home and abroad. The First Lady took this opportunity to swing by a state that is easily forgotten on most tours of the US and said hello to the men and women in uniform in Alaska, as well as their families.

Even the Washington Post didn’t have much negative to say about the radiant Melania Trump as she talked with both children and adults with great ease. Here’s more from our source on the First Lady’s visit to the military base in honor of Veterans Day:
Melania Trump might have been a fashion model at one time in her life, but she had no qualms ripping off a chunk of messy play dough and getting her hands dirty, just like the three preschoolers seated at the table with her Friday at a military base in Alaska.
Trump expertly rubbed the material between her two hands into a perfect sphere and then rolled the red small ball on the table to the girl seated across from her.
The nation’s first lady then moved to the table to her right and made a harmonica out of ordinary household materials, held together with a rubber band.
It’s not the heady stuff of the official visit with her husband to Asia but hundreds packed the Arctic Oasis Community Center to get a glimpse of the first lady as she toured programs for children and youth at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson. She made a refueling stop at the Anchorage base en route back to Washington, D.C., after spending the last week with President Donald Trump in South Korea and China.
The White House said late Friday that the first lady “has her own schedule to keep and needed to get back.”
“Any time we have an opportunity to share with others what our program does and the educational basis for all the activities that we do, it’s a chance to show our story and to share with other individuals how we serve our military population,” said Tamra De Benedetto, who oversees all activities at the base for children under age 18.
Trump viewed items children made on a 3D printer, saw sewing projects, and watched as they constructed fish out of compact discs, glitter, and gems.
“Every program we offer has an educational purpose and a reason for why we do it,” De Benedetto said.
De Benedetto said she exchanged a few private words with Trump. “She is just delightful and very genuine,” she said.
Trump didn’t make a public speech or address reporters but did take time to shake hands and talk briefly with parents and military members who flocked to the community center.
He made the correlation when she explained to him that the visitor is the president’s wife, and then he became excited.
“He was like, ‘Oh, wow. OK,’” she said.
Air Force Master Sgt. David Jennings brought his wife, Lindsay, and their two daughters, Abbigail and Annabelle, to see the first lady. He said dignitaries stop at the base all the time, but base personnel rarely are able to get close.
But in this case, the family got a good view of the visit, and they took pictures to remember the rare event.
“A great family memory here,” he said.
There are 14,000 active duty soldiers and airmen stationed at the joint Army and Air Force facility in Anchorage. With their family members, that number swells to 29,000.
There are currently 1,800 service members deployed all over the globe, including 1,200 in Afghanistan.

BREAKING: NFL Is Dead Forever After What First Kneeler Of The Season Did Yesterday As Giant ‘F You’ To Trump
If there’s one thing that we’ve learned from NFL protests it’s that the social justice warriors involved are willing to pay tribute to anyone or anything other than America. No matter how much these entitled players benefit from the United States’s free economy and the service members who have given their lives so that we remain free, they persist in insulting America and praising everyone else.
Watching the players of this season’s protest is reminiscent of watching a teenager who rebels against the parents who gave him life and food and housing, just because they told him he couldn’t do one thing he wanted to do. In both cases, they stomp off to their Range Rovers and sulk like children, cursing the hand that feeds them.
That persona slips away, however, when there’s an actual danger at hand. If you don’t believe me, just take a look at what happened during Sunday’s NFL game with Mexico. One of the anthem protest’s biggest supporters, Marshawn Lynch, not only sat out our National Anthem, but he stood in respect for the Mexican anthem. Fox News reported that the President both took notice, and had a few ideas for how to deal with Lynch’s blatant disrespect:
“President Trump on Monday slammed a top NFL player who sat for ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ but stood for Mexico’s national anthem, and offered a new directive: suspend him for the ‘remainder of the season.’
Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch sat during the majority of the U.S. national anthem but stood for the Mexican anthem before his team’s game Sunday against the New England Patriots at Azteca Stadium in Mexico City.
‘Marshawn Lynch of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders stands for the Mexican Anthem and sits down to boos for our National Anthem. Great disrespect!’ Trump tweeted. ‘Next time NFL should suspend him for the remainder of the season. Attendance and ratings way down.'”

Obviously, the President can’t require that Lynch be cut, but the NFL is in dire straights as far as their business is concerned so they might want to listen to the advice. Americans have gotten sick of watching millionaires pretend that they know what’s best for the country, and have left the NFL in droves, but still, the players persist.
“The president has seemingly taken it easy on the NFL for the past few weeks — likely because he was overseas for a 13-day Asia tour. But Sunday, he again addressed the NFL’s national anthem controversy.
According to Sports Illustrated, Lynch has protested the anthem all season and has not stood for the anthem since coming out of retirement to join the Raiders.”

NFL players who have protested the national anthem this season by taking a knee, or sitting on the bench, reportedly do so to protest police brutality and injustice, rather than the U.S.
The now months-long feud began dominating headlines in September after a rally in Alabama when Trump called for players to be fired if they disrespected the flag, spurring the controversy.
“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say ‘get that son of a b— off the field right now? Out! He’s fired! He’s fired!” Trump said to the crowd at the rally, drawing criticism from NFL players, as well as NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
The president has repeatedly tweeted about his disappointment in the NFL players, and managers for their lack of “rules and regulations” to ensure players stand for the anthem.
This move was especially insulting because of the U.S. border wall project that Mexico has been trying to block at all costs. Mexico is perfectly happy with the arrangement we currently have, where any undesirables that they want to get rid of can be shipped north. Assuming it gets too tough for some drug lord in Mexico, he can just jump a fence or swim a river and carry on his business in peace.
Another reason Lynch’s move is noteworthy is that when considering the possible reasons behind his respect for the Mexican national anthem. It’s hard to ignore the possibility that it’s because he didn’t want to risk getting into trouble.
America has made it clear that while most of us don’t appreciate these protests, they’re perfectly legal. There won’t be anyone throwing cuffs on a person who sits for the anthem or stomps on a flag. Mexico, however, has a reputation for being less forgiving, and their prisons less cushy.
It’s hard to ignore the idea that Lynch probably stood for the Mexican National Anthem because he actually feared the repercussions if he didn’t. This is kind of what the President was getting at with his tweet a while back, when he said that disrespecting America have some consequences. Of course, they don’t have to give any punishment to players like Lynch, and we don’t have to start watching their games again.

White Christians Just Targeted Again In Nasty Attack After What Kaepernick Did – This Means War
Our current age of post-modernism is one that tells us we can believe anything we want, and that’s okay. They tell us that, but what that lackadaisical approach to truth and lies, and right and wrong have given way to is that they don’t really mean it. Society really means that you’re allowed to have any non-previously accepted view, as long as it’s politically correct.
That mindset is the one that told Colin Kaepernick it was okay to disrespect the flag and told the National Football League that there would be repercussions if they punished him for it. It’s the same ideology that has told Muslims that they’re now accepted; because accepting people and religions who want to kill us is new and exciting, tolerant even. However, anyone who dares to stand on a time-tested faith or tradition is branded as intolerant and unacceptable. There can be no absolutes, except that you absolutely can’t violate our new master; political correctness.
Such is the ideology of NFL player Eric Reid, who while claiming to be a Christian, and probably wholeheartedly believing that he is one, is ready to throw anyone under the bus who doesn’t agree with the PC platform and his buddy Colin Kaepernick. The Huffington Post, who is known for its love of all things liberal, gleefully reported that Reid is ready to call out any Christian who doesn’t come running back to the NFL and accept their disrespect with open arms:
“Eric Reid, a Christian athlete with the San Francisco 49ers, is calling out the hypocrisy of Christians who have denounced NFL players for protesting police brutality and systemic racism.
Reid, one of the first to join his then-teammate Colin Kaepernick in kneeling during the national anthem last year, cited the Bible to make his point.
‘I do see some hypocrisy with the people that call themselves Christians,’ Reid, 25, told The Associated Press in an interview released Monday. ‘If you know Jesus, he went into the house of God and turned over the tables and was angry and said they made the house of God into a marketplace so I would say this is something that He would do.’
Reid was referring to a story that appears in multiple books of the New Testament. The passages tell of Christ entering the Temple in Jerusalem and driving out the merchants and money changers. In the Gospel of John, he’s described as fashioning a ‘whip of cords’ to drive out the animals in the Temple, and turning over the money changers’ tables.
It’s one of the few passages in the Gospels where Jesus demonstrates righteous anger and fury.”
The passage of scripture that is being referenced is a powerful one, and one that we should always keep in mind. Because you see, while Jesus was very adamant that when someone attacks you personally you should turn the other cheek, he was also clear that anyone trying to make money off of religion should be punished.
That was what was happening in when the tables were thrown and the whips were used, it was against money changers in the Temple who were looking to make a buck off of those who shared their faith. You know, kind of like what a football player might be doing if he were to try and shame his fellow Christians into paying money to see him play, by using the bible.
“Over Veterans Day weekend, Reid was one of three NFL players who took a knee during the national anthem before a 49ers game. He said his faith continues to drive him today.
‘We have to speak up for those who can’t do it for themselves,’ Reid said. ‘I feel like the past year before we started protesting, the Lord has prepped me for this moment.'”
While Christians are under attack, this is an attack that is about as scary as that of a toothless animal. They took out the teeth with their mutilation of the scriptures that they’re willing to follow and the meaning that is acceptable to them. It’s no threat to those who understand the passages in context. But we’ve got this America. We just have to keep using our heads for something other than a hat rack and see this misuse of someone’s faith for what it really is: the emotional pleas of a group willing to exploit their own faith to make a buck.
Should you be faltering in your resolve to make your feelings about the anthem protest known to the NFL, please just remember this; there are only two people who have ever offered to die for you; Jesus Christ and the American Soldier (Sailor, Airman, and Marine included of course). We need to show honor to whom honor is due. That’s my brand of Christianity, and hopefully yours as well.

Muslim Basketball Player Gets Massive Dose Of Karma After What Team Caught Him Doing During Anthem
It seems like we can’t have a sporting event without politics getting involved these days. What used to be an escape from the problems and annoyances that plague our everyday lives has turned into a magnet for all things controversial. What started out as one rogue football player protesting the National Anthem of the country who offered him so much opportunity has ballooned into the social justice movement of the season.
Sadly, most of us have given up our fall staple, and skipped the football games, forcing the league into a corner that they won’t soon come out of. However, not every sport was so lax with their policies. The NBA commissioner made it clear that he expects every player in his league to stand for the National Anthem, and so far, they all have.
But like all streaks, this one had to end, and it ended with one very devout college student who considers himself above all law, except, of course, Sharia Law. This Kansas college student decided that he was too good to pay any attention at all to our anthem and just kept shooting hoops. The New York Post reports that it didn’t take long for him to be ejected and thrown off the team:
“WICHITA, Kan. — A Muslim student-athlete who refused to observe the national anthem for religious reasons at a basketball game at a western Kansas college has been kicked off the team.
That has ignited concerns over whether Garden City Community College violated the civil rights of 19-year-old Rasool Samir, who continued shooting balls during the anthem Nov. 1, leading to a confrontation with a fan who accused him of disrespecting the flag.”
It seems that everyone has rights given to them by this country, except those of us who actually want to respect this country and want to see it succeded. If you’re someone who wants to kill other people for not believing the way you believe, or if you came here illegally, and zap taxpayer money, or believe that other people owe you money for something that happened over a hundred years ago, then you’ll get all the respect.
And as far as his objecting because of his religion, he should have known before he started playing for the team that this would be an issue. We, by default, give up some of our rights when we join a team or organization. Let’s face it, not many athletes would be spending their time running laps if they could just get straight to playing the game without it, but if the coach says you run laps, you better get to running laps. It’s not an invasion of your rights or a loss of freedom; you literally signed up and asked for it. It’s the same with any ritual that the team deems worthy of your attention, so long as it doesn’t break the national law.
“The college says Samir was dismissed for a team rules violation because he did not leave the court with his teammates when the anthem was played. Samir said he was not protesting, according to the Garden City Telegram, which obtained a letter from the American Civil Liberties Union saying, ‘he refrained from participating in the anthem because he is a Muslim and his faith prohibits acts of reverence to anything but God.’
During the Garden City Community College opener, Samir kept shooting as fans stood, honoring the flag. According to the Telegram, a fan came out of the stands after ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ and confronted him, leading to an argument and a campus police officer separating them. Samir was escorted off the court and the fan, Jim Howard, went back to his seat with applause from some in the stands.”
We can all appreciate that religious freedom is something we take seriously in this country. However, we can also appreciate that you don’t have to have respect for something, to obey the rules and keep your mouth shut about it. No one was even asking him to pledge his allegiance to anything (although if you want to live here, you should be able to place your allegiance), they were just asking him to not be a jerk while the anthem was playing. No rights violated, the court is just shut down while that song plays.
“‘I’ve had enough of disrespecting our flag,’ Howard told the newspaper. ‘I’ve been raising money for 32 years for this college, trying to help pay for scholarships for these kids. If they’re not going to respect our flag, then they need to get off of our campus and out of Garden City.’
The ACLU has voiced concern that Samir may have been disciplined for exercising his First Amendment rights. It’s still gathering information and hasn’t decided whether to sue.”
Any organization can voice any concern that they wish. Just like the student in question can go shoot baskets on any court that is open while the anthem is playing. He cannot however, demand that the court be available for him to play at any time that he wishes, and if they say nobody shoots hoops during the anthem, he has two choices; sit quietly, or go someplace else. Obviously, we know what he will be doing from now on, since he’s no longer playing for that team.
