So we didn't see the beginning of the game last night when they played our National Anthem. I just read and heard that Stanton an Hicks took a knee. As a proud US Army Veteran that served my country with pride and honor that's where I draw the line. There is a time and place for everything and disrespecting the flag and men and women who served our country to protect our freedom, again is where as a Veteran is where I draw the line. I saw soldiers come home in a box draped in the Flag of our country they fought so bravely, and now these athletes making millions of dollars to play a game taking a knee during out National Anthem is a disgrace. You don't want to stand, then stay in the locker room till the Anthem is over. I have made many, friends on this Yankee forum and respect all, I am not posting this to have a debate and talk politics, I also understand Boone has no problem with Station or anyone taking a knee during the National Anthem, well I a have a few words for him also. I am writing this post in case you wonder why I am not posting anymore. As I said, this is where I draw the line.

Unless I'm mistaken..the kneeling came before National anthem. They all stood up when anthem was played.  I might be wrong. Will check when I get a chance.  

Lauren, if that's the case please let me know. If it was Just taking a knee, and was not during the Anthem, I have no problem with that, That's anyone's right. I am under the understanding it was during the Anthem? That I take issue with.

It was during the anthem on Saturday Tony.

Walk a mile in their shoes. As a black man, try to understand their plight.  Seeing blacks treated less than equal. 

Stanton and Hicks will kneel in the coming games.....

As reported...

In kneeling, Stanton said he hopes it continues the conversation for “basic human rights in America.

“It’s not equal,” he said. “It’s for equality. It’s for us all to have a fair shake. There’s a lot of things in the system that could be changed and it’s just a way to bring that to light.”

Why now?

“I think now is when people will finally listen,” Stanton said.

“Because I’m a Black man living in America,” Hicks told reporters.“Because I feel like, for me, I should be judged by my character but not my skin ton,” Hicks said. “Growing up, that’s kind of what’s happening. I felt like it was right to do. Also, that it’s kind of hard thing to talk about, especially when it’s my life. All I want is to be treated the right way.”

Manager Aaron Boone said he supported Hicks and Stanton. He said that though many Yankees weren’t on the field during the anthem, he thought it more had to do with their pre-game routines than anything.

“I know it was heavy on their heart,” Boone said of Hicks and Stanton. “I support their right to do that and that it was very well thought out and something important to them.”

Second baseman DJ LeMahieu stood next to Hicks and Stanton. He tapped them on their shoulders at the end of the anthem.

“They kind of gave us a heads up before the game and just didn’t want them to be out there by themselves doing that. Just wanted to let them know I’ve got their back and their support,” LeMahieu said.

Lying Donnie doing what he does best: LYING.

@realDonaldTrump Because of my strong focus on the China Virus, including scheduled meetings on Vaccines, our economy and much else, I won’t be able to be in New York to throw out the opening pitch for the @Yankees on August 15th. We will make it later in the season!

Too busy golfing, watching TV, and tweeting.

Why I can't take you seriously. You just can't get past your hatred for Trump that you post things that aren't true. 

 These cities were a mess before Trump sent any Feds. He has the right and duty to protect federal property. To say he didn't help cities when they needed help from covid just shows how blinded you are.Man you really are lost.

California governor praises Trump's efforts to help state amid coronavirus crisis


He Has Delivered for New York': Cuomo Praises Trump's Coronavirus Response

 Want a do over? Feel a little stupid? Doubt it.  Now if you listen to them you can see Trump will get past any dislike if help is needed. He will try to to the right thing but attack him he attacks back.  While they were praising him there was no doubt in my mind they will stab him in the back to win an election. They got what they wanted and more then they needed but it's already forgotten.

 Putin Putin Putin. Still wishing for that Russian collusion BS but no interest in the criminal conspiracy that took place to undermine his Presidency.You want a real scandal it's there but you libs don't have any interest when it's your party doing the dirty deed.

Trump did that after his lack of preparation and after he told Governors that they are on their own which cause the Governors to have a bidding war on PPEs and other equipment which raised the prices.

About Putin, it's all in the Mueller report to read. There was unreported contact with Russians and there were examples of Obstruction of Justice. I even posted the report along with what pages and paragraphs that showed the examples I just mentioned. As I expected, the links were ignored and not addressed.

Max YOF said he didn't help, he did. Trump was left with no PPE by Obamas admin. Yes he had 3 years to replace it but he got them what they needed. If your going to knock Trump can we send a few to a Cuomo for sending the ederly back to nursing home with covid. We mention dictators we should look to Cuomo who is now telling people what they have to eat when the go to a bar reasturant. Wings no good. Has to be something of substance. This guy is unreal.

 Max Mueller didn't even know The DNC and Clinton paid for the Steele dossier who's source was a Russian.I guess that doesn't count.  I look forward to him testifying again as much more information comes out about the corruption involved that resulted in this investigation.He was lost the last time he testified.I see him looking extremely bad this time. Actually feel sorry for him. He wasn't running the show and his best days are way behind him but he took the job.They should call that low life Weissman in.

I didn't vote for Trump so your wrong again. Rather someone else was running but he is and he's  not Biden, Pelosi or Schumer. 


As I recall, you were a strong Kasich supporter in '16. What's your feeling re his intention to speak at the Democratic Convention in support of Biden?

I know Kasich doesn't like Trump. He has the right to support who he wants but if he does support Biden he should switch parties.

 I honestly think Biden will be a puppet to the far left libs. 

 Whats your thoughts on this?  

Joe Biden’s disastrous plans for America’s suburbs


I assume you had a valid reason for supporting Kasich. Just seems odd that now you feel he should change parties simply because he doesn't support Trump, much like many truly conservative Republicans. That list is very long.

As for the NY Post "disastrous plan" sensational headline, I'd have to research that further before forming an opinion. 

I supported Kasich because I thought he might have a chance to bring both parties together. Those days are gone after the last few years .If he is going to support Biden who is the pocket of the far left libs I feel he should change parties.

 I don't consider any of those in the Lincoln project conservatives. IMO no true conservative could support Biden. Sanctuary cities. Healthcare for those here illegally. Weaking our military. Defunding our Police. It's more that they let their personal dislike for Trump affect them. Lets be real they all have been in the in the swamp forever.

This is what trumpies like you have trouble understanding, the Lincold Project supports our country and it's people, they can see donald and you troumpies only seem to care about lining your/their pockets as donald and his family have since they walked through the doors of the WH... It's about time some people, whether it's (D) or (R) start looking at whats good for this country, it's for sure the (R) that are in power right now have that the furthurist from their minds... Working together is what our forfathers wanted, a coutry run by one man that wants to be a dictator is not what they had in mind !!!

 The Lincoln Project is a bunch of political hacks who are the embodiment of the swamp. Nobody but the left cares what they think.

So old wise one whats good for our country? Politicians who let the mob rule. Politicians who ignore laws they don't like but enforce other laws that suit their agenda. Pour paint on a BLM sign it's a hate crime. Paint Kill the Pigs on a church and ignore it. Do you see what's going on in Dem run cities? Portland where Biden is ignoring the violence but call out for egregious acts the Feds Law enforcement there to protect fed property . Seattle dem mayor lets them take over a city calling it a summer of love while two kids where killed there. Chicago where the Mayor calls out the President who offers help but does nothing about the slaughter of blacks every week going on there. Who caters to the mob taking a statue down of Columbus in the middle of the night.In NYC you have Cops getting assaulted but the GOV, Mayor and state AG are more interested in a Cop who pushed a protestor down. Focus on closing restaurants who serve people a few beers without food but encourage thousands march the streets during a pandemic. Nothing to do with lining our pocketbooks. The poltical hacks just bent over backwards to shut down a Back the Blue protest on LongIsland saying speakers from out of the state wouldn't be allowed into the state during the lockdown. Do you see there is freedom of speech only for those who support their narrative. That's OK to you. 14 Cops killed since George Floyd was murdered. Every Police Officer I know thought that was criminal and terrible but silence from the left on those Cops. Silence from the left on David Dorn. Change your name to YankeeOldFool. 

 Oh he is one of the founders of BLM.Great marxist group who is in favor of breaking up families. This is who the Left support over the Police.

Black Lives Matter leader Charles Wade charged with sex trafficking

 The left caters to the loudest voices but the silent majority is watching in disgust and this will shock you but it's a lot of black people. They want law and order because they are the victims who suffer the most.

How can you mention someone that lets the mob rule ??? We have one of the biggest Mob/Gangster guy as out POTUS... donald is forcing his way into these Dem controlled states/cities trying to make them look bad, it's not working, I know you trumpies like to blame everything on the Dems... Your kind of like donald, he/trumpies never take any blame, arguing with you is like talking to my grass when I mow it !!!

Are you watching whats going on in these Dem run cities? You can't be that clueless. You have Pelosi calling Fed agents Stormtroopers. Not one Dem speaks out against these peaceful riots. Not one says anything about Officers killed, attacked and injured. Just we support peaceful protests ignoring those that aren't. Attacks on Fedreral property. Officers getting blinded by lasers while city officials do nothing. 

Posting to you in like talking to the class Dunce when he gets some free time from standing in the corner.

 Take control of their cities and Trump doesn't have to send anybody there. These rioters aren't protestors. They are anarchists who know they can get away with this in weakly governed cities. You have people who are to dumb to know that and are getting dragged into it with them. Some buy it on here. They keep this up they are making them kook bad., not Trump.

Do you leave your house and talk to people or just stay in this little bubble? Most people see this. They might not like Trump or even vote for him but they see whats going on

I have seen many Democrats speak out against rioters. Democrats also fight for laws to try to make it harder for criminals to get weapons, which would make a Police Officers' job safer and easier.  Three years ago, Pelosi might have been the first politician to call Antifa terrorists.

  “Our democracy has no room for inciting violence or endangering the public, no matter the ideology of those who commit such acts.”  “The violent actions of people calling themselves Antifa in Berkeley this weekend deserve unequivocal condemnation, and the perpetrators should be arrested and prosecuted.

"In California, as across all of our great nation, we have deep reverence for the Constitutional right to peaceful dissent and free speech,” “Non-violence is fundamental to that right. Let us use this sad event to reaffirm that we must never fight hate with hate, and to remember the values of peace, openness and justice that represent the best of America.” ~ Nancy Pelosi

 Chicago has strick gun laws. Hows that working? Criminals get weapons. Always have always will. Backing the Police stops the violence. Putting handcuffs on them you get these riots , property destruction, looting and people assaulted and killed.

Where is Pelosi now? Last I heard from her she had no problem with them tearing down statues. 

 Somebody should tell Nadler. Clown show.This is what I see. I hear them harp on the peaceful protestors and ignore the violence. 

Jerry Nadler claims antifa violence is a myth

As expected, we will see and hear a steady stream of conspiracy theories, smears and other attempts to divert attention away from the copious failings of the Worst President in American History.  There is no possible bonafide defense of The Orange Menace at this point.

Trump-huskers will spread lies and deceit and misinformation they get from "the facebook". They can't help it. Bless their hearts.
