A Letter Worth Repeating

This is an open letter written to Spineless, Roger Goodell a few years ago. It was written by retired Marine Col. Jeffery Powers to the NFL commissioner about players kneeling during the United States national anthem.

I fact checked this and it is a correct attribution. I consider it a powerful letter and worth posting again. I wish I could have been standing there when Spineless Roger Goodell read it.

I have always been a “glass-half-full ” kinda girl. But is it possible for anyone to find a positive thought about this nasty Chinese Wuhan Virus?

Easy Peasy for me….. I hope the safeguards and lock downs from this virus force Spineless Roger Goodell  and all like him into bankruptcy.

I have posted a video interview with Col Jeffrey A Powers at the close of his following letter.

-Sheila Tolley-

 

I’ve been a season pass holder at Yankee Stadium, Yale Bowl and Giants Stadium.

I missed the ’90-’91 season because I was with a battalion of Marines in Desert Storm. 14 of my wonderful Marines returned home with the American Flag draped across their lifeless bodies. My last conversation with one of them, Sgt Garrett Mongrella, was about how our Giants were going to the Super Bowl. He never got to see it.

Many friends, Marines, and Special Forces Soldiers who worked with or for me through the years returned home with the American Flag draped over their coffins.

Now I watch multi millionaire athletes who never did anything in their lives but play a game, disrespect what brave Americans fought and died for. They are essentially spitting in the faces and on the graves of real men, men who have actually done something for this country beside playing with a ball and believing they’re something special! They’re not! My Marines and Soldiers were!

You are complicit in this!

You’ll fine players for large and small infractions but you lack the morale courage and respect for our nation and the fallen to put an immediate stop to this.

Yes, I know, it’s their 1st Amendment right to behave in such a despicable manner. What would happen if they came out and disrespected you or the refs publicly?

I observed a player getting a personal foul for twerking in the end zone after scoring. I guess that’s much worse than disrespecting the flag and our National Anthem. Hmmmmm, isn’t it his 1st Amendment right to express himself like an idiot in the end zone? Why is taunting not allowed yet taunting America is ok? You fine players for wearing 9-11 commemorative shoes yet you allow scum on the sidelines to sit, kneel or pump their pathetic fist in the air. They are so deprived with their multi-million dollar contracts for playing a freaking game! You condone it all by your refusal to act. You’re just as bad and disgusting as they are. I hope Americans boycott any sponsor who supports that rabble you call the NFL. I hope they turn off the TV when any team that allowed this disrespect to occur, without consequence, on the sidelines. I applause those who have not.

Legends and heroes do NOT wear shoulder pads. They wear body armor and carry rifles.

They make minimum wage and spend months and years away from their families. They don’t do it for an hour on Sunday. They do 24/7 often with lead,not footballs, coming in their direction. They watch their brothers carted off in pieces not on a gurney to get their knee iced. They don’t even have ice! Many do t have legs or arms. Some wear blue and risk their lives daily on the streets of America. They wear fire helmets and go upstairs into the fire rather than down to safety. On 9-11, hundreds vanished. They are the heroes.

I hope that your high paid protesting pretty boys and you look in that mirror when you shave tomorrow and see what you really are, legends in your own minds. You need to hit the road and take those worms with you!

Time to change the channel.

Hey, Rosalee

Democrats vs Trump: Let’s Review

Dear Democrats,

I just have a few questions for you…Let me start with, I already know you don’t like President Trump…that’s a given, SO let’s move on from that.

How about the division of America?

Do you really blame Trump for that?

How about when NONE of the DEMOCRATS showed up for his inauguration? Don’t you think that started the division?

He hadn’t even been president yet, and EXCEPT for Clinton and Obama, not one democrat showed up…Is that when Trump divided America? Can you imagine if the REPUBLICANS didn’t show up for Obama’s inauguration because they lost??? Can you even start to imagine what would have happened?

How about when 19 minutes after Trump was inaugurated, the Washington Post declared the IMPEACHMENT CAMPAIGN has STARTED? Was that when Trump divided America?

How about when Nancy Pelosi ripped up Trump’s state of the union right in front of the world, showing complete disrespect for the President of the United States? Did that bring the country together and is THAT when Trump divided America?

How about when America had to endure, 3 years and over 30 million dollars spent on trying to PROVE that Trump only won because of RUSSIAN COLLUSION and NOT because America voted him in and 17 democrats did EVERYTHING in their power to PROVE that there was Russian Collusion…and came up with ZERO?

Was THAT when Trump divided America?

I can’t even start to go over the NEGATIVE PRESS he’s received since his surprise win.

Remember, the DONORS, the likes Bloomberg, who gave 27 million, Tom Steyer who gave 17 million, George Soros who gave 9 million and MANY MORE that gave MULTI-MILLIONS to Hillary, wanted a return on their investment?

Do you really think that donors give MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS just because they love Hillary?
NO, these weren’t campaign donations, they were INVESTMENTS into what HILLARY had promised them when she became president.

They were so sure she would win and they would be SHOWERED with HUGE RETURNS, and when it didn’t happen and they LOST all those millions, they went all out to TAKE TRUMP out of OFFICE by any means possible.

DID YOU KNOW that 90% of the Mainstream media and the corporations that own them are owned by or run by BIG DEMOCRAT DONORS? You can verify all of that for yourselves…I did.

Since the moment Trump won, even before he was inaugurated, the mainstream media’s reporting was 92% negative on Trump, do you know why?

It was those big donors that lost their dream of MILLIONS of dollars, on their returns that they were going to receive when Hillary was president and they weren’t going to take that loss lightly…They needed to PUNISH TRUMP and those that VOTED HIM IN.

I’ve said this since the night he was elected: “There is NOTHING the left won’t do to take down our President”, our country and us, no low they won’t go to, to get their power back”, and sadly, we have seen this every single day since his election.

Let me ask you this…Have you ever listened to Trump or appreciated any accomplishment or campaign promises he’s kept, have you ever gone to one of his rallies or have you just closed your mind to ANYTHING he does?

Please ask yourselves the following questions, if you dare…

What has Joe Biden done for America for the last 47 years that he’s held an office?

What did Joe Biden ever do for BLACKS when HE and Obama were in office?

What has Joe Biden ever done in his entire life to create a private-sector job?

What has Joe Biden done to help the American middle-class worker?

Let me also ask you this…Why do you think there are so many people tearing down statues, burning our flag, beating up police officers, disrespecting our founders, and hating our country?

It comes straight from our SCHOOLS that have slowly been tearing down our history.

If there is a teacher out there, please tell me the following:

Do you teach the truth that it was the DEMOCRATS that were the KKK?

That the GRAND LEADER of the KKK was Robert Byrd, who was elected to congress and served for decades, and that it was Hillary, Bill, and Obama that gave his EULOGY praising him?

That the DEMOCRATS fought the Civil war to KEEP SLAVERY?

That the inner-city ghettos were created by DEMOCRATS to keep control of slaves after they were freed?

That planned parenthood was founded in inner cities to CONTROL the BLACK POPULATION?
Is any of this in your history books?

Let me ask you this as well.

Can a student speak up when he/she disagrees with a teacher when they say that Trump is a horrible president or the electoral college has to be eliminated? I don’t think so?

Well, I know a student that actually happened to…When the teacher said it had to be eliminated because Hillary lost, and he stated the reason it should stay. She ripped him apart and gave the entire class a 5 hour test, and stated it was because he DARED to disagree with her.

Is that happening in your schools?

I’m only asking questions….I’d like your answers.

President Trump and his entire family have been vilified, demeaned, and disrespected, for one reason and one reason only…….HE WON.

Have you noticed the DEMOCRATS only throw tantrums and OBJECT to everything he does and have NEVER ONCE gotten behind him to make America the best it can be? WHY?

They can’t afford to get behind him…he would WIN AGAIN, and they can’t let that happen….if he wins again, the Democrat party will be destroyed and they know it.

Did you notice that the “CAGES” the left claimed that Trump built to put Illegal children in, WERE BUILT BY OBAMA for the very purpose of PUTTING ILLEGAL CHILDREN IN?

Was THAT all over the news when Obama did it? The very same “CAGES”…but the media was silent!

How about when Trump commuted Roger Stone’s sentence, and was DEMONIZED 24/7 but NOT A WORD when Obama commuted 1715 inmates, which included 330 that he granted on his last day in office.

DID WE EVEN HEAR one WORD about it?

Were there reporters even reporting it…NO! Just look at the difference in the reporting. By the way, since Trump’s been in office he’s commuted 10 people…compare that to Obama…Is that reporting fair?

How about when Biden and Obama allowed the H1N1, the SWINE FLU, to INFECT MILLIONS of Americans before declaring it a health emergency?  Was the press losing its minds and calling it the OBAMAFLU AND BLAMING OBAMA and BIDEN for the spread? SILENCE!

Compare this to the NEGATIVE COVERAGE that Trump got when, he immediately halted travel from China when, in February, Nancy Pelosi went to Chinatown and said come on down, or when DeBlasio, in March, said ride the subways and go to broadway…BUT those same people are blaming Trump for the spread of coronavirus.

A FINAL QUESTION:

What have the DEMOCRATS done to help make America the best, to get behind a president that works tirelessly to care about WE THE PEOPLE instead of using us as political pawns?

What have the democrats done for people of color EXCEPT for GIVING ILLEGALS more rights than citizens and having us pay for it?

JUST imagine what this country could accomplish if the Democrats worked with him on the economy, the coronavirus, the inner cities where he’s created opportunity zones, job training, etc.

When Trump tried to get school choice for inner-city students they ran Betsy Devoss out! The Dems running those inner city schools wanted no part of school choice.

Have you ever wondered why the cities that have the MOST HOMELESS, the MOST CRIME, the most MURDERS, the worst INNER CITY schools, ARE ALL RUN BY DEMOCRATS?

If you haven’t started asking yourselves those questions, maybe you should.

As I said, my entire family used to be democrats, but NOT ONE will ever vote for a democrat again…They asked themselves the same questions and the answer was clear.

God Bless The USA

This video fills me with pride

I am truly proud of our President Trump and all he has accomplished for America and the American people during his past 4 years.  He truly has America at the forefront of his agenda. 

He is in nobody’s back pocket.
