Florida Sheriff’s Office Refuses to Escort NFL’s Dolphins Until They Stand for Anthem

From the story:  “I didn’t want to believe that it was really happening,” he said. “But when he stepped on the flag – I just thought about all these men and women who fought for that flag that he just walked on – all these men and women who’ve come home with that flag draped over their coffin.” So Alex grabbed his phone and snapped a photo – a photo that would eventually go viral on Facebook. Then, the teenager rose from his seat, picked up the flag and took the defiled banner to the principal’s office. “We are extremely proud of him,” Alex’s mother told me. “He did the right thing.” However, doing the right thing could land the brave, young patriot in hot water.

Mr. Francis told me Alex “broke the law” and should be punished. “I believe that child does need to be punished in some way – absolutely,” the teacher told me. “I can’t take a picture of them and in turn they cannot do the same of me.”

Mohler: “Sister Wives” at the Supreme Court

A polygamy case is now being appealed to the United States Supreme Court.

It’s the so-called Brown case or the “Sister Wives” case based upon a reality television program about a man with multiple wives in Utah.

The Browns’ attorney, Jonathan Turley, has argued on the basis of religious liberty, but he has also been making the argument that if same-sex marriage were to become a legal right, as it has, there is no moral or legal argument against polygamy also being legalized.

If the United States Supreme Court doesn’t take this case, it is almost assuredly because it fears the public reaction of doing so. As recently as last year, the Chief Justice of the United States John G. Roberts in his dissent to the Obergefell decision legalizing same-sex marriage warned that the recognition and legalization of polygamy would naturally follow the logic of that case.

We will do well to pay close attention to the Sister Wives’ case.

Charlotte Erupts Again, Hillary Fuels the Fire

The governor declared a state of emergency.  More officers were attacked.  At least one person was shot (Fox News).  Multiple civilians were shot according to this story, not by police (RCP). ABC News called the rioters “who threw bottles at police, blocked an interstate, threw objects at passing cars, jumped on vehicles, looted businesses, vandalized a Hyatt hotel and attacked its employees” mere “demonstrators” (ABC News).  Hillary tweeted anger at the police (Gateway Pundit).  And yet, a story notes “A Charlotte, North Carolina news station says it has confirmed with sources that there is dash camera video that shows Keith Scott getting out of a car and coming at police officers with a gun in his hand” (KWCH).  From another: “Officers approached Scott and gave him multiple warnings to drop the weapon, Putney said. Scott then attempted to get out of the vehicle with the gun in his hand, which is when he was shot by Officer Brentley Vinson, who is black and has been placed on administrative leave, as is standard procedure in such cases. Vinson has been with the department for two years” (CBS News).  More on the Charlotte shooting (CNN).  Meanwhile, a more detailed look at the shooting of Terence Crutcher (ABC News).  Trump had a more sensitive answer to the difficult Tulsa shooting (RCP).

Hewitt: The Politicization Of Sport

Pepperdine California Democratic Party

I have compassion, as do almost everyone in this country, for the 70,000 transgendered individuals living in the United States.

But I loathe the NCAA.

The NCAA has withdrawn all championship events from North Carolina for the 2016/2017 academic year because the state has passed laws requiring people to use the bathroom corresponding to their sex at birth.

Mark Emmert, the president of the NCAA, explained saying, “We believe in providing a safe and respectful environment at our events.”

If you believe this, Mr. Emmert, shut down and sanction every college. You would not let players take the field when lightning strikes because that is a real safety issue. This is politically correct nonsense.

If the NCAA can tell Penn State to shut down and erase all of its losses and wins, if they can suspend programs that are state-funded for years and years, the “voluntary membership” aspect of the organization isn’t voluntary. It’s just the politicization of sport by the nanny state.
