NHL ‘Condemns Russia’s Invasion’ and Halts Relationships with ‘Business Partners’

The National Hockey League (NHL) is behaving towards Russia in the exact opposite manner of the NBA’s sickening adoration for China. “The National Hockey League condemns Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and urges a peaceful resolution as quickly as possible,” the league said in a statement.

The NHL is even willing to do what the NBA won’t, which is put their money where their mouth is. “Effective immediately, we are suspending our relationships with our business partners in Russia and we are pausing our Russian language social and digital media sites.”

The NHL is also doing the exact opposite of what the MBA did when it unnecessarily removed the Baseball All-Star game out of Atlanta. “In addition, we are discontinuing any consideration of Russia as a location for any future competitions involving the NHL.”

The NHL did not shy away from the fact that many of the league’s players are, and have been, Russian-born players. “We also remain concerned about the well-being of the players from Russia, who play in the NHL on behalf of their NHL Clubs, and not on behalf of Russia,” the statement continued.

“We understand they and their families are being placed in an extremely difficult position.”

The New York Post reports on the league’s attempt to keep its members safe:

NHL agent Dan Milstein — the CEO of Gold Star Hockey who hails from Ukraine and represents several Russian players, including stars Nikita Kucherov and Andrei Vasilevskiy — told TSN’s Darren Dreger there has been cause for concern.

“[Milstein] has raised concerns of ‘real threats’ to his Russian based clients both in-person and on social media to the NHLPA and NHL clubs with Russian born players,” Dreger tweeted. “Milstein is asking for additional security for his players in North America.”

One of the Washington Capitals star players Alex Ovechkin, a Russian who has been a public and noted supporter of Vladimir Putin delicately told reporters, “It’s a hard situation. I have family back in Russia and it is scary moments,” Ovechkin said.

“But we can’t do anything. We just hope it going to be end soon and everything is going to be all right. Please, no more war. It doesn’t matter who is in the war — Russia, Ukraine, different countries — I think we live in a world, like, we have to live in peace and a great world” he added.

Biden ‘allies’ concerned with Hollywood lawyer’s ‘aggressive public defense of Hunter Biden’

Hunter Biden

Hunter Biden’s Hollywood attorney buddy Kevin Morris is reportedly upsetting President Joe Biden’s “allies” with his very public defense plan for Hunter. Among the defenses is a plan to question the validity of, and story behind, the New York Post’s exclusive 2020 story on Hunter’s laptop found at a Delaware repair shop.

Another issue of concern, according to a New York Times report, is that Morris gave Hunter a loan totaling over $2 million to pay off his tax debts and take care of his living expenses. “It potentially echoes the cash he received while serving on the board of a Ukrainian oligarch’s company and pursuing deals with a Chinese tycoon, the Times said.”

But President Biden’s supporters want his scandalous son to stay out of the public eye and avoid going to trial. Morris’ tactics, however, are making a big splash. For one, he was recently accused of “spying” on filmmakers who are making an independent movie “My Son Hunter.” The movie allegedly paints an unflattering portrait of the Biden family.

The Times said Morris may try to use footage he shot on the movie’s set located in Serbia to try and “undermine” the film and the laptop. Another potential issue for the Bidens is how Morris came to  be in possession of Hunter’s controversial artwork.

Morris is rumored to be an art collector, and according to one source, Morris might have received Hunter’s art as a gift. The Times cited two people familiar with the story.

Everything is exacerbating the scrutiny the White House has already been under, when it comes to Hunter’s scandals. Hunter and Morris met at a fundraiser for then-candidate Joe Biden’s presidential campaign.

Oklahoma Governor Signs Bill Banning Nonbinary On Birth Certificates

Published

on

On Tuesday, Republican Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill banning the use of nonbinary as a gender option on state birth certificates.

The new law, SB 1100, requires all birth certificates in the state to only allow male or female as gender options.

The law says that it “requires the biological sex designation on a birth certificate to be either male or female and prohibits a nonbinary or any symbol representing a nonbinary designation including the letter ‘X’ beginning on the effective date of this act. The measure declares an emergency.”

“People are free to believe whatever they want about their identity, but science has determined people are either biologically male or female at birth,” said Oklahoma Rep. Sheila Dills, the House sponsor of the bill, in a statement. “We want clarity and truth on official state documents. Information should be based on established medical fact and not an ever-changing social dialogue.”

“As the war on common sense continues, we must stand up and put a stop to this nonsense regarding biological sex,” said Michael Bergstrom, R-Adair, the principal author of the bill. “It’s not a complicated issue – biologically, you’re either a male or female. There should be no other option to choose from on a birth certificate. I’m thankful my colleagues in the House of Representatives also saw the need to stand behind science and approve this measure.”

Stitt’s signing of the bill comes after he signed an executive order in November 2021 directing the Oklahoma Health Department to stop issuing or changing birth certificates with nonbinary as a gender option.
