When the Pittsburgh Steelers decided to stay their sorry selves in the locker room during the playing of the national anthem at Sunday's game, the entire NFL fanbase, minus the Friends of Colin Kaepernick crowd, gave a collective sigh -- a heavy, frustrated, "here we go again" sigh. Then came Alejandro Villaneuva.

Jimmy Kimmel, elitist pro-Obamacare mouth, is at it again

- The Washington Times

Jimmy Kimmel, the Hollywood comedian who turned into a pro-Obamacare mouthpiece a few months ago by speaking emotionally of his son's medical condition, is at it again -- this time, snarking it up on the televised stage how stupid Republicans are, how stupid the Obamacare repeal effort is and how very, very "phony" is the "little creep" from Fox News, Brian Kilmeade.

Colin Kaepernick: Apologize

- The Washington Times

Colin Kaepernick, the quarterback known these days more for his on-field displays of anti-Americanism than for his tossing skills, now says he's ready to play. Well, isn't that special. No apology? No play. That's what I say, anyway.

Hey lady, raw cotton is not racist -- it's raw cotton

- The Washington Times

A new controversy has erupted in the left's ever-expanding war on racism, and this one is so ridiculous that even the left ought to be shaking heads in shame.

Paul Manafort wiretapped -- and suddenly, Trump's not so crazy

- The Washington Times

Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump's former campaign manager, was being wiretapped by feds -- not just once, but twice -- as part of an FBI investigation into his dealings in Ukraine and Russia. The secret surveillance took place at a time when Manafort was in contact with Trump, all the way into 2017. And with that, Trump, who claimed that his Trump Tower had been wiretapped by Barack Obama in the lead-up to the election, is suddenly no longer the crazy dude the left made him to appear.
