America took the offensive.

That’s because Nike’s “virtue-signaling” really irritated people in the wrong places.  Only a week after Nike bowed to Chinese Authorities’ demands by halting the sale of a range of shoes in China due to the Japanese designer’s support for Hong Kong protests, the sportswear company has been implicitly banned from Arizona after nixing the launch of its “Betsy Ross Flag” sneakers.

The governor of Arizona flew into a Twitter rant.

“Words cannot express my disappointment at this terrible decision,” Arizona Governor Doug Ducey angrily tweeted.  “I am embarrassed for Nike.  Nike is an iconic American brand and American Company.  This country, our system of government and free enterprise have allowed them to prosper and flourish.

“Instead of celebrating American history the week of our nation’s independence, Nike has apparently decided that Betsy Ross is unworthy, and has bowed to the current onslaught of political correctness and historical revisionism.

“It is a shameful retreat for the company.  American businesses should be proud of our country’s history, not abandoning it.

“Nike has made its decision, and now we’re making ours.  I’ve ordered the Arizona Commerce Authority to withdraw all financial incentive dollars under their discretion that the State was providing for the company to locate here.”

The governor believes the Arizona economy is doing just fine without Nike. 

“We don’t need to suck up to companies that consciously denigrate our nation’s history,” Governor Ducey Tweeted.  “And finally, it shouldn’t take a controversy over a shoe for our kids to know who Betsy Ross is.  A founding mother.  Her story should be taught in all schools.  In the meantime, it’s worth googling her.”

Amen.  Google Betsy Ross.

AND THEN THE VETERANS CAME TO BETSY’S RESCUE

Just like a one-sided Clint Eastwood shootout, this veteran-owned apparel company then flings themselves into the debate over Nike’s decision and comes out not only criticizing Nike but selling their own shirtline with the “Betsy Ross flag” on it.

How’s that for hueavos?

The company is called Nine Line Apparel and it was founded in 2012 by military veteran Tyler Merritt and his wife.  Nine Line Apparel released the t-shirt featuring the flag created during the Second Continental Congress to show unity among the original 13 colonies.

The company’s owner also wants to go for Nike’s bottom line jugular.  In addition to the t-shirt offering from Meritt’s company, the founder is “calling on Americans to boycott Nike and to display their patriotism with the hashtag #NoToNike.”

In a media release from the company, Meritt states ““Nike seeks profit through controversy, but with absolutely no regard for the consequences. In its corporatist wake, it leaves behind anti-American sentiment and division, harming our country. But since Nike has no interest in displaying the Betsy Ross flag, a classic symbol of freedom and unity, then we proudly will.”

THEN THE PENDULUM SWINGS TO THE LEFT

And then the pendulum swings to the left. 

That’s when Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro praised Nike’s decision to pull shoes with the 13-star American flag in an interview with CBSN, saying he was glad to see it happen.

“I was glad to see that.  And my hope is that they didn’t just do it to do it.  They understand the significance there.  And look, there are a lot of things in our history that are still very painful,” Castro said according to the article.  “The Confederate Flag that still flies in some places, and is used as a symbol.  And I believe we need to move towards an inclusive America that understands that pain.”

And this other commie, Beto O’Rourke, spoke to reporters Wednesday saying, “I think its really important to take into account the impression that kind of symbol would have for many of our fellow Americans, respect the decision Nike made and grateful for the conversation (that it is provoking)”.

Funny, how all this works when the U.S.-theme Betsy Ross Flag once flew over the Obama inauguration.  It was okay flying the Betsy Ross for the treasonous commie former President, but …

Wait a minute. Where is that leftist criminal these days?  Has the treasonous non-American been indicted for high crimes against America yet?  My prediction is Barack Obama will very soon be going to prison.

Hallelujah!

THERE’S GOD IN THEM HILLS

I was once told by a dear friend that gold is one of God’s greatest gifts to mankind, and if anything’s going to save us, it will be gold.  I don’t think he meant it in the literal sense, like where on the very first 4th of July God goes up to Adam and Even and says, Oh, and one more thing.  Take this pile of gold and make a bank and save humanity with it. 

I think what my friend meant is more on the spiritually metaphorical side, where in the name of God and Christianity and Humanity, there exists in this world a really big pile of gold that is supposed to be used to facilitate the world financial system to benefit all people in all places.

I don’t know if that’s true or not.  It sounds like fictional fantasy, doesn’t it. It would have to be a REALLY HUGE PILE OF GOLD to save this world.  But what I do know is that gold will play a central theme in the future for the members of mankind that honor God.

Gold is the future of the global financial system, there is no doubt about it.  But if we want to reach that golden future we had better find the path that God has created for us and remember what his Rules of Law are.  And we must practice them.

Christians face extinction if we don’t.  It is time for those members of the Judeo-Christian spiritual philosophy to come together and pray like never before.  Pray to the God that created our spiritual blood line as if our very existence depends upon it.  Because it does.

Happy 4th of July America!!!
