‘These guys are thugs and monsters’: Major advertiser threatens to cut ties with NFL over player conduct

The NFL has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons in recent weeks as domestic violence and child abuse charges sideline some of the league’s most high profile players. As public condemnation for the NFL grows, major sponsors are starting to second-guess their relationship with the league.

Earlier this week, the Radisson hotel chain suspended its sponsorship of the Minnesota Vikings in the wake of the child abuse charges against running back Adrian Peterson. On a larger scale, Anheuser-Busch – the official beer of the NFL since 2011 – released a statement on Tuesday expressing concern over the “recent incidents.”

"We are disappointed and increasingly concerned by the recent incidents that have overshadowed this NFL season,” an Anheuser-Busch spokesman said. “We are not yet satisfied with the league's handling of behaviors that so clearly go against our own company culture and moral code. We have shared our concerns and expectations with the league."

The NFL was quick to respond to the beer company. "We understand," NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said of the Anheuser-Busch statement. "We are taking action and there will be much more to come."

While it is unlikely a company like Anheuser-Busch will actually end its partnership with what is arguably America’s favorite pastime, their public condemnation of the NFL is significant.

On radio this morning, Glenn warned that if the NFL does not clean up its act, there could come a time when its fan base and corporate sponsors decide enough is enough. He likened the potential fallout to Hollywood, which has seen a huge drop off in box office sales as of late – not because people don’t like going to see movies but because the industry has become so out of step with the audience.

“They're saying people don't like movies anymore. People like movies. People don't like the experience anymore… and I think it's because Hollywood has gotten so out of step with the American people that they no longer have that fantasy relationship with movies,” Glenn said. “I'm sorry, but I think the NFL and all sports are going to go down the same road.”

While the NFL may have a “king of the world” mentality right now, Glenn believes there is a contingent of people who will be turned off by the league’s ethics – or lack thereof.

“I give that warning to the NFL,” Glenn said. “I'm telling you, if you don't clean up your mess, if you don't start saying, ‘We have certain ethics, and I don't care how damn good you are on the field, if you violate these ethics, you're not worthy to play the game’… everybody has a bad day. Everybody has their own problems. But you have to have a certain level of decency. I don't think the NFL has that.”

Glenn used the NFL’s handling of former Baltimore Raven’s running back Ray Rice’s domestic violence case as an example. After initially giving Rice a paltry two game suspension, the league reversed course and suspended him indefinitely after surveillance footage showed him knock out his then-girlfriend Janay Palmer and public outrage ensued.

“Ray Rice, what happened to him? Two game [suspension]. He knocked his girl out,” Glenn said exasperatedly. “These guys are thugs and monsters. I'm not bringing my kids to an NFL game because I can't say to my kids, ‘Hey, let's watch that guy… by the way, he's a scumbag in real life. But let's root for him.’”

In separating on-the-field performance from off-the-field actions, Glenn believes we are teaching children they can behave however they want in their personal life so long as they excel professionally.

“That's wrong,” Glenn concluded. “That's showing them that money is over everything else. It's not.”

COVID is back! Or that is what we’re being told anyway...

A recent spike in COVID cases has triggered the left's alarm bells, and the following institutions have begun to reinstate COVID-era mandates. You might want to avoid them if you enjoy breathing freely...

Do YOU think institutions should bring back COVID-era mandates if cases increase? Let us know your thoughts HERE.

There was a time when both the Left and the Right agreed that parents have the final say in raising their children... Not anymore.

In the People's Republic of California, the STATE, not parents, will determine whether children should undergo transgender treatments. The California state legislature just passed a law that will require judges in child custody cases to consider whether parents support a child’s gender transition. According to the law, the state now thinks total affirmation is an integral part of a child’s “health, safety, and welfare.”

We are inching closer to a dystopia where the state, not the parents, have ultimate rights over their children, a history that people from former Soviet nations would feign repeating.

The Biden admin has let in MORE illegal aliens than the populations of THESE 15 states

There are currently an estimated 16.8 MILLION illegal aliens residing in the United States as of June 2023, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). This number is already 1.3 million higher than FAIR's January 2022 estimate of 15.5 million and a 2.3 million increase from its end-of-2020 estimate. Even Democrats like New York City's Mayor Adams Mayor Adams are waking up to what Conservatives have been warning for years: we are in a border CRISIS.

However, this isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010. In the first two years of the Biden administration alone, the illegal alien population increased by 16 PERCENT nationwide, imposing a whopping net cost of $150.6 BILLION PER YEAR on American taxpayers. That is nearly DOUBLE the total amount that the Biden administration has sent to Ukraine.

This isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010.

These large numbers often make it difficult to conceptualize the sheer impact of illegal immigration on the United States. To put it in perspective, we have listed ALL 15 states and the District of Colombia that have smaller populations than the 2.3 MILLION illegal immigrants, who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration. That is more than the entire populations of Wyoming, Vermont, and South Dakota COMBINED—and the American taxpayers have to pay the price.

Here are all 16 states/districts that have FEWER people than the illegal immigrants who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration.

1. New Mexico

Population: 2,110,011

2. Idaho

Population: 1,973,752

3. Nebraska

Population: 1,972,292

4. West Virginia

Population: 1,764,786

5. Hawaii

Population: 1,433,238

6. New Hampshire

Population: 1,402,957

7. Maine

Population: 1,393,442

8. Montana

Population: 1,139,507

9. Rhode Island

Population: 1,090,483

10. Delaware

Population: 1,031,985

11. South Dakota

Population: 923,484

12. North Dakota

Population: 780,588

13. Alaska

Population: 732,984

14. Washington DC

POLL: Should the Government control the future of AI?

Earlier this week, tech titans, lawmakers, and union leaders met on Capitol Hill to discuss the future of AI regulation. The three-hour meeting boasted an impressive roster of tech leaders including, Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, and others, along with more than 60 US Senators.

The meeting was closed to the public, so what was exactly discussed is unknown. However, what we do know is that a majority of the CEOs support AI regulation, the most vocal of which is Elon Musk. During the meeting, Musk called AI "a double-edged sword" and strongly pushed for regulation in the interest of public safety.

A majority of the CEOs support AI regulation.

Many other related issues were discussed, including the disruption AI has caused to the job market. As Glenn has discussed on his program, the potential for AI to alter or destroy jobs is very real, and many have already felt the effects. From taxi drivers to Hollywood actors and writers, AI's presence can be felt everywhere and lawmakers are unsure how to respond.

The potential for AI to alter or destroy jobs is very real.

Ultimately, the meeting's conclusion was less than decisive, with several Senators making comments to the tune of "we need more time before we act." The White House is expected to release an executive order regarding AI regulation by the end of the year. But now it's YOUR turn to tell us what YOU think needs to be done!

Should A.I. be regulated?

Can the government be trusted with the power to regulate A.I.? 

Can Silicon Valley be trusted to regulate AI? 

Should AI development be slowed for safety, despite its potential advantages?

If a job can be done cheaper and better by AI, should it be taken away from a human?

Do you feel that your job is threatened by AI?
