COLIN KAEPERNICK

TRIUMPHANT RETURN

I must confess I’m not a football fan; I really don’t know much about the game; I really don’t care about it.

However, I do know a lot about Colin Kaepernick.

I respect the man and agree with the peaceful protest and the message that he’s trying to bring to the forefront by using the platform that he had when he was able to play football.

After being shunned for at least two seasons; after continued pressure from the NFL, after continued disparaging from the occupant of the Oval Office, Kap makes a triumphant return!

Take a look.

HOW DID THIS BEGIN?

In a 49ers’ final preseason game, backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick decided sit on the bench to protest racial inequality and police brutality for the national anthem.

~TAKING A  KNEE~

Former Seahawks player and Green Beret Nate Boyer who talked Kap into making the change. Boyer wrote an open letter to Kaepernick and it caused the two to meet up and discuss America and honoring the anthem.

“Soldiers take a knee in front of a fallen brother’s grave, you know, to show respect. When we’re on a patrol, you know, and we go into a security halt, we take a knee, and we pull security.”

GoldSwirl

It was US Army veteran, Nate Boyer, who suggested to Kaepernick to take a knee as a sign of respect

This is their inspiring story of what can happen when people with different perspectives decide to sit down, have a conversation, and hear each other out.

Kaepernick was the first NFL player to kneel during the national anthem before games in 2016 to protest racial inequality and police brutality. Critics accused the protest of disrespecting the US flag and military and Drumpf called for players who protested during the anthem to be fired.

Nike released a commercial starring Colin Kaepernick on Wednesday, September 5, following this week’s announcement of a partnership between the two that prompted boycott threats as well as criticism from Drumpf.

Nike and Kaepernick posted the commercial on Twitter and YouTube.

The ad, narrated by Kaepernick, showcases various inspirational sports-related stories, including amateur athletes such as a football-playing homecoming queen and an Ironman participant who lost 120 pounds and recovered from a brain tumor. Professional athletes, including Serena Williams, LeBron James, and the Seattle Seahawks’ Shaquem Griffin (whose left hand was amputated when he was young), are also featured.

Kaepernick narrates the ad, which features a wide range of athletes including inspirational amateurs, Serena Williams, and LeBron James.
Kaepernick is shown only in the closing seconds of the commercial, which does not feature the former NFL player in football gear.

THE SAD REALITY 

The Drumpf regime, as an iceberg

This explains the total lack of action from the members of the party in the majority.

I’m hoping that Karma catches up to them and there will be a price to pay.

They ALL disgust me!

Keith Olbermann, #34 …. “The Enormous Cost of Trump’s War on Immigrants …. “!!

~~February 16, 2017~~ 

FIRST THEY CAME FOR THE UNDOCUMENTED AMERICAN

First they came …” is a statement and poem written by Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) about the cowardice of German intellectuals following the Nazis’ rise to power and subsequent purging of their chosen targets, group after group.

~Wikipedia~

blinefirstbline

America and Americans have been know for their kind actions in benefit of others (so they claim).

Nevertheless, this belief is shattered as we see the heartlessness in the deportment of these undocumented Americans who do not fall under the category of criminals, drug dealers and the like.

Take into account the story of Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos.

As I write this, the phrase ‘cut your nose to spite your face’ comes to mind.

Be careful what you wish for!

Garcia de Rayos came illegally to the United States from Guanajuato, Mexico, in the mid-1990’s with her parents when she was 14. She was arrested in 2008 in a workplace raid at Golfland Sunsplash, a waterpark in Mesa, Arizona.
She was convicted in March 2009 of criminal impersonation for having a fake Social Security number, a sixth-degree felony.

I feel this is important information about what is happening in the Republican Administration lead by Drumpf and what we need to be aware of.

Keith Olbermann series called “The Resistance” continues.

He has posted installment #34.

The video speaks for itself.

If this resonates with you, good.

If they don’t, just scroll away to the next blog.

Thank you!

GoldSwirlMSoul2GoldSwirl

After teasing the release of her forthcoming third studio album, Lindsey Stirling has dropped the first single in June 28, titled “The Arena.”

The music is noticeably more powerful and poignant than a lot of her previous work, making use of strong drum work and more electronic influence in the bassline and backing synths.

The music video also works to present a stronger Lindsey Stirling herself, as the concept of an “arena” and the motif of a post-apocalyptic wasteland battleground are surely settings in which only the strong survive.

The album: Brave Enough.

We ALL are connected through MUSIC!!

GoldSwirl

Lindsey’s dance partner in the video is also a professional dancer and has appeared on Dancing With The Stars, Derek Hough.

The album, entitled Brave Enough, is now available for pre-order and will release on August 19.
