Most members of the US women’s soccer team stayed silent during the national anthem before its World Cup opener Friday against newcomers Vietnam — who passionately belted their nation’s tune. The majority of the reigning women’s World Cup champion team stared stoically ahead as the “Star Spangled Banner” blasted across New Zealand’s Eden Park arena. Only five of the 11 players who stood on the field for the anthem — with young, aspiring players standing before them — placed their hands over their hearts, while their six teammates kept their digits clasped behind their backs, video shows. Only three USWNT players — Julie Ertz, Alyssa Naeher and Lindsey Horan — sang

As I said a few days ago, considering the conspicuous lack of patriotism on the US Women's National (soccer) Team, I have a good time cheering against them (while seldom watching the games). Not every women's team soccer player sings from the Rapinoe hymnal, but they're apparently in the majority. What a shame. You might remember that the Resident bestowed the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Rapinoe, which was an act of figurative micturition on past worthy recipients. What is the matter with these people?

Comparing the US team to other spoiled rotten evil modern lie-beral US snowflakes is totally appropriate!!! They deserve all of the derision that they receive since they have the freedom to do the right thing but instead chose to be total witches (or something that rhymes with that)!!! They do not represent the USA in any way other than the team title, and I will not be rooting for them. But to compare them to a team from a totalitarian Communist country like Vietnam is not appropriate. Those people on that team have no choice but to show their "patriotism", or the government can throw them and their families into a labor camp for "re-education" or worse. Every second they are in the public eye, they are being watched. One faltering moment of not showing extreme "pride" in their country can be a fatal mistake.

Jake Wallin was once a small boy who sought comfort in the arms of family, terrified of fireworks that lit up the sky. On Saturday, the Fargo police officer was remembered for growing up to be a military veteran and dedicated officer whose “final act of valor” was staring down the face of a man intent on bloodshed. Wallin, 23, was killed July 14 when a man armed with 1,800 rounds of ammunition, multiple guns and explosives ambushed officers responding to a routine traffic crash.(Snip)Wrigley said Barakat had an “obvious motive to kill” and was driven by hate, but it was not directed toward any particular group — including the police.

Chicago (CBS) - A burglar who can't see something can't steal it either – that is the idea behind a new method of deterring crime by using fog. As CBS 2's Tara Molina reported Tuesday, the technology behind the fog release is a brand-new way of fighting the mass retail thefts plaguing the city. (Snip) "DensityUSA's instant fog technology is pretty unique," said Mike Egel, president and chief executive officer of DensityUSA. "When a criminal breaks in after hours, the alarm deploys; the fog deploys, and in seconds, your business is going to be protected." The reason, Egel said, is because the burglars won't be able to see what they're doing.

Donald Trump’s favorability among Republican and Republican-leaning voters has fallen from 75 percent in July 2022 to 66 percent in July 2023, according to a new Pew poll. Conversely, while only 24 percent of Republican voters surveyed thought of Trump unfavorably in July 2022, that is now up to 32 percent in the latest poll. Among the broader voting public, the former president’s unfavorability has remained largely stable. Whereas 60 percent of Americans did not hold a strong opinion of him in July 2022, today, that is only 63 percent following his legal woes.

The Biden family was selling out America to Ukraine, Romania, and Communist China. There is plenty of proof.

The Justice Department has said it plans to sue Texas if the state doesn’t remove the 1,000-foot floating barrier it placed in the Rio Grande river in a bid to deter illegal immigrants from crossing the US border. The threat of legal action was made in a letter sent to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott by the Biden administration on Thursday. The barrier of wrecking ball-sized buoys, which was strung up earlier this month near the border town of Eagle Pass, was “unlawful” and violated federal law, the letter charged. “The State of Texas’s actions violate federal law, raise humanitarian concerns, present serious risks to public safety

Jack Smith was appointed on November 18, and now has a team of 40 to 60 prosecutors, paralegals and support staff working to investigate the former president. On June 8, Smith charged Trump with 37 counts relating to the documents illegally stored at Mar-a-Lago. He is expected to soon bring charges in connection to allegations of interfering in the 2020 election.
