I believe that black lives matter. I always have and I always will.

But I can believe that black lives matter without believing in the hard-core political action group that calls itself Black Lives Matter who have taken over our streets.

I can believe that black lives matter without believing in that race hustler Al Sharpton, who uses BLM to push his brand of hatred and lies. Remember Tawana Brawley?

I also can believe black lives matter without watching that boob Mayor Bill de Blasio cheapen the thought by painting the words as a joke on Fifth Avenue across the street from Trump Tower.

I believe that 3-year-old Mekhi James and 13-year-old Amaria Jones and 7-year-old Natalie Wallace, who were shot and killed on the 4th of July, and 6-month-old Jonylah Watkins, who was killed in her crib, were all children whose black lives mattered.

All these sweet innocent children were shot and killed this month and God knows their little lives mattered to their parents and to the world they will never see.

The other day Davell Gardner, a 1-year-old boy, was killed by a stray bullet in Bed-Stuy. Tommy Halladay, a grieving black man, said this on the 6 p.m. Eyewitness News broadcast on WABC Channel 7:

"We talk about what the police doing to us, look at what we doing to ourselves. What does black lives matter if you're killing yourselves."

When George Floyd was murdered by a monster cop named Derek Chauvin, Black Lives Matter made Chauvin the symbol of every cop in this country.

Then they called for cops throughout the country to be defunded or eliminated.

In New York Mayor de Blasio, in a knee-jerk reaction, closed up a whole division of cops whose job was to take guns off the streets.

I firmly believe that many of those black people and babies who were subsequently shot and killed would be alive today if the police would have been allowed to do their job.

Black Lives Matter, the political group, is wrong. We don't need fewer police. We need more police, everywhere in this country.

If Black Lives Matter wants to march, let them march all over the country to force cities to recruit and add thousands of black police officers to their departments.

Let Black Lives Matter add to their pictures of George Floyd with pictures of Davell Gardner, Mekhi James, Amaria Jones, Natalie Wallace and Jonylah Watkins.

And let them push to get the guns and the gunmen that killed these babies out of black neighborhoods forever.

Until they do, Donald Trump is watching.

Trump is a gutter fighter and all of a sudden he sees his chance.

He will not run for re-election against Joe Biden.

He will run against Black Lives Matter, Al Sharpton, Bill de Blasio and all those those people who are advocating a country where little kids are being murdered every day.

He will be a Law and Order candidate.

I already have seen some people who were a sure vote against Trump a few months ago now suddenly acting strangely quiet, as though they're on the fence.

None of them will say they'll vote for Trump but who knows what they're thinking. Remember, many of them told pollsters they were voting for Hillary and you see how that turned out.

Before you dismiss these thoughts ask yourself this question: How would you like to have Donald Trump as your president for four more years?


They've won. The Washington Redskins are no longer going to be called the "Redskins."

Trump, of course, jumped on this, citing a news report that found a majority of Native Americans were not at all offended by the name.

Guess which side most football fans will be on this issue?

Here's a letter I took off the internet on this issue.

I think all sports fans – and most everybody else – will get a kick out of this letter written to the Chicago Tribune. No matter which side you are on in the matter of renaming the Washington Redskins, this guy is hilarious ... This is an e-mail sent to Clarence Page of the Chicago Tribune after an article he published concerning a name change for the Washington Redskins: Dear Mr. Page: I agree with our Native American population. I am highly jilted by the racially charged name of the Washington Redskins. One might argue that to name a professional football team after Native Americans would exalt them as fine warriors, but nay, nay. We must be careful not to offend, and in the spirit of political correctness and courtesy, we must move forward.

Let's ditch the Kansas City Chiefs, the Atlanta Braves and the Cleveland Indians. If your shorts are in a wad because of the reference the name Redskins makes to skin color, then we need to get rid of the Cleveland Browns.

The Carolina Panthers obviously were named to keep the memory of militant Blacks from the 60s alive. Gone. It's offensive to us white folk. The New York Yankees offend the Southern population. Do you see a team named for the Confederacy? No! There is no room for any reference to that tragic war that cost this country so many young men's lives. I am also offended by the blatant references to the Catholic religion among our sports team names. Totally inappropriate to have the New Orleans Saints, the Los Angeles Angels or the San Diego Padres. Then there are the team names that glorify criminals who raped and pillaged. We are talking about the horrible Oakland Raiders, the Minnesota Vikings, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Pittsburgh Pirates! Now, let us address those teams that clearly send the wrong message to our children. The San Diego Chargers promote irresponsible fighting or even spending habits. Wrong message to our children. The New York Giants and the San Francisco Giants promote obesity, a growing childhood epidemic. Wrong message to our children. The Cincinnati Reds promote downers/barbiturates. Wrong message to our children. The Milwaukee Brewers. Well that goes without saying. Wrong message to our children. So, there you go. We need to support any legislation that comes out to rectify this travesty, because the government will likely become involved with this issue, as they should. Just the kind of thing the do-nothing Congress loves. As a die-hard Oregon State fan, my wife and I, with all of this in mind, suggest it might also make some sense to change the name of the Oregon State women's athletic teams to something other than "the Beavers" (especially when they play Southern California). Do we really want the Trojans sticking it to the Beavers??? I always love your articles and I generally agree with them. As for the Redskins name I would suggest they change the name to the "Foreskins" to better represent their community, paying tribute to the dick heads in Washington DC.
