WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says that if he owned the Washington Redskins, he would “think about changing” the team name, wading into the controversy over a football nickname that many people deem offensive to Native Americans.

Obama, in an interview with The Associated Press, said team names like the Redskins offend “a sizable group of people.” He said that while fans get attached to the nicknames, nostalgia may not be a good enough reason to keep them in place.

“I don’t know whether our attachment to a particular name should override the real legitimate concerns that people have about these things,” he said in the interview, which was conducted Friday. source – AP

  • NTEB, running out of articles to post?

    • Good Morning, my thoughts too! We can run all over and find important things right?? Have a great wknd, Blessings in the Lord STL

  • This insane dictator is out of control!!!!

    And he chould change his name from muslim to Christian, because his love of Allah is offensive to ME.

  • Weezie

    Why point out things that bring contention and imply insults when no insult is meant. To the pure in heart all things are pure but there are those who want to manipulate, twist, divide and cause contentions where there are none. Keep your eyes in Jesus.

  • Koko

    Goes to show ya Obama is trying to control everything by infusing himself into things such as this. I don’t know why he hasn’t been impeached already.

  • karen gray


  • I miss the days on here when Debra, Suez, Brenda,Ron, Tracy, DCity and Ruby used to post and debate scripture and talk about Jesus. Look what’s being said now. Disagreeing on the time of the rapture is mild compared to the above comments.

  • I am quit offended at that language used on what I thought was a Christian blog. Not sure if I want to follow this anymore.

    • There have always been a lot of evil people, trolls and deceivers, here. Language is about the least of the offenses you’ll see, if your eyes see.

    • Kimber I was going to say something but am the one who is always yelling at back biting. Glad you did, only time that’s happened in the 3 mo I been here was from a group of New Agers that ojected to the article END had posted. There are very good folks here, stay for awhile and try to ignore the offensive ones. Blessings to you

  • People are blind partisans not to see it’s all Frick and Frack, Bush or Obama. Bush and Cheney were bloody, warmongering chicken hawks from the word go, creatures of the military-industrial complex, elitists, and they left the nation deeply in debt, the economic system crashed before Obama was inaugurated. It doesn’t hold any water these men were good for American. Keep in mind, also, the so-called Patriot Act was a creature of Bush, that he was tapping into all internet traffic long before Obama came on the scene. I believe a lot of the Obama hate is simple racism, just the wrong reason to be critical and not a Christian reason, as he was rabidly hated before he’d done anything or was known to anybody. The worst things Obama has done involve uplifting homosexuality to redefine marriage, and, now, having terrorist allies, sponsoring these evil thug armies in the Middle East, who we all know are enemies of the West and anything Christian. So, this pretty much settles how much a Christian Obama is, the disobedience and direct affronts to God. But don’t kid yourself America has been on a right course for even decades, that you haven’t just been voting for the lesser of two evils, and ask yourself whether there is ever, really, a lesser evil. Seems to me this whole concept if very flawed, that evil is evil.

    Matthew 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

    Luke 6:39 And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?

    Luke 6:46 Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you?

    John 4:24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.

    • That makes a lot if sense Heather.

  • Deb: Matthew was right, love will grow colder, he was not only talking about the unrighteous only, but also the christians.

  • Kimber: which part did not you understand?

    These are the last days, there will be alot of people voicing harsh opinions with foul language.

    This is not a class in Sunday School.

    This forum is very opened to all points of views.

    Until the Lord comes for us, we have no choice to allow it to happen.

    It will get much more worest as time goes on!

  • I think they should keep the name and change the mascot to peanuts because Washington is nuts.

  • OBOOZO ,is working his way around to everyone,YOUR BEING LEAD TO WAR,if you see it fine, if you don’t GET READY,..OBOOZO is a KGB agent and he was brough to america to destroy america and HE WILL,….WITH WAR,read your bible DANIEL 8:11/8:12……….ITS THE BOTTOM LINE,once you know who he is,THEN GET READY ,YOUR OUT OF TIME………………………

  • What a stooge, who cares what Osama says , he is nothing but a monkey with a hand grenade, I cant wait to see it go off

  • jacklynn

    so what it doesn’t offend me and im native American

    • Hi I never look at those as offensive, but for me more out of respect for a Chief or Warrior. Weird I know, thank you for speaking reason. Blessings to you

    • I am a white man and proud of it! rename them the Washington white skins.

  • NOTICE TO EVERYONE: Please keep your comments a REASONABLE length. Copying and pasting 2 or 3 pages of the bible is NOT acceptable comment posting. Also, anti-semitic comments are STILL not allowed. All people posting anti-semitic comments will be banned. Lastly, no personal attacks, those posters will be banned as well. No exceptions. Thank you – NTEB Staff 🙂

    • Thank you for this, but I think you should have added Blasphomous language. dennis reed should not be allowed to post here.

      • We are combing through the comments right now, many changes being made.

        • thank you for addressing this, and for the record I apologize if I ever posted something inappropriate. Blessings to you

          • I just combed the database, and found a fairly high percentage of profane words used in posts by a lot of you. I’m talking about hundreds of posts with the”f” word and so forth. Please know that ALL such posts will be removed even if we agree with the rest of what is in there. We want this to be a free and open place to talk about current events and the things of the Lord, but profanity will NOT be tolerated for any reason. Thank you.

          • I understand but you did not answer my question about speaking against our Lord in the way done here. I guess I don’t understand.

      • Now teresa,ask yourself the question,why can’t we post anything negative about israel or jews? Could it be that certain people don’t want us to start waking up. If you do not see this than you are also part of the problem because you know what they have done in the past.

        • perhaps but you are funny saying I need to wake up, just saying 🙂

          • OK, well that aint gonna happen, not knowledgable and that’s not my battle its Gods. Ours is to save souls and spread the Word. I think I will let Him sort us all out that’s all. I am just more willing than others to either read or believe what I read, or as I do think ok, maybe? I am not good boxed in. You have a great day, am thanking God we did not get the snow that SD did!!!! 🙂

          • OK whewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. glad I can still play in the sand box 😉

    • NTEB: BEEN ON VACATION: we had Dennis and Hannah as ATHEIST, deny God, cussing words, even Post-Tribber suggesting we believe in Fables.

      So please explain the rules more closely so us posters will not make any rude mistakes on your Web Site!

      • Rules are quite simple: No antisemitic comments, no racial comments, no swearing or cursing, and no inciting to violence. It’s really not asking a lot.

    • I can tell you have been combing through the comments because a couple of mine are gone.Why don’t you let the people know who is running our homeland security? Is it anti-semitic to point out that israel is basically in charge and telling our police how to behave? Could this be why they just went wild and killed that women in DC? I posted an article about israel and our DHS and you deleted it.
      And as for the anti-semitic comments ,take a look at this.

  • I’m praying for dennis reed.

    • Sharon Hi, thank you for joining all doing so. Those folks cannot stop us from praying, isn’t it great?:) Blessings to you

  • Kimber: are you STILL blaming Bush? The Great Divider has been president for five years! HE is the one talking about minor subjects, when the gov’t is still partly shut down. He is the one trying to stir discontent among a certain element amongst us. NOT nice! He should be thinking about how he’s going to get out of the corner he backed himself into! But…..that would require a piece of humble pie, which he has never tasted! We should all be praying for our country, and its leaders, even the ones we don’t like. We must pray that the Lord gives them wisdom, and the heart to do what is right for America. Obama doesn’t want to do what is right; he wants to destroy America! He’s doing a good job at it. Still, we must pray that God will give our leaders (NOT Obama) the ideas, the intelligence, the strength to fight the good fight, and save America from the evil that attacks us! Also, we must pray for our friends and neighbours, and that America will turn from the rampant sin that has caused the Lord to turn His Back on us! He is too Holy to look on our hideous sins of abortion, gay marriage, child molestations, divorce, spousal abuse. so many others. We can only do our best to start a new revival, to regain the Good Lord’s blessing!

  • I am of Native American heritage, and I am PRETTY DAMNED SURE THIS DOESN’T OFFEND ME.


  • Why change the name of the Washington Redskins? What would he name them? Why think about tat he has a lot more to deal with than a football team. WE have kids all over the world that die everyday. Change the name of a team. here will it end the United States is a proud country it is stupid things that hurt us!!!

  • DM2: You said, your a white man, what does a white man consist of?

    Does that mean, since your a white man, all other races should not voice their opinions, against white skin people?

    Jesus was not white?

    • STL: WHY do you ALWAYS find fault with someone’s post, and pick at the tiniest point in their comment? WHY don’t you look at the ENTIRE comment, and take it ALL in? PLEASE, act like an ADULT Chrisitan, for once!

      • That is all he does Jody! He just comes on here to attack people!

    • I did not say anything of the sort larue, stop making things up.

  • How BOUT them Cowboys. :mrgreen: You Gotta love Gerry Jones, 😛

    • Couple of my comments have been deleted.Had a good one about DHS and israel,it is of course gone.

      • Eng what did they do? they play us today. Yes your comment could/would be deleted which tells me it was not checked first, I can go w them on that I guess, but I am one who likes the whole pic. However, they have no problem w dennis vile words against the Lord. Don’t get it.

        • oh was I off, thought you were talking football!

  • Dennis : Good-bye!


    • Why not go back to FDR? No, I am not concerned with who used to be in the White House and neither am I concerned with who WILL be in the White House. Only with the current occupier whomever they may be…

      • History is very important as well as our past presidents.Communist FDR played a very important role in the destruction of our country..you see the results yourself.

        • don’t you think our ancestors were blinded like we have been? I only know because of internet. same w school books since See Dick Run!! 🙂

          • disagree, know NO one younger than me that knows stuff, nor do my kids as they could care less about History and then the Generations who grew up w it carry it on. They think the right things are done, but no not the real reason behind. ?

      • If you posted what really happened in WW2 or who is behind all of our problems, you would be given a very hard time or shut down in a heartbeat.

      • NTEB why are you concerned w only the currant President in ofc, we got to where we are partly because of the prior ones. They are full of Freemasonry. They are puppets in a large mix of Bankers, etc. I guess I didn’t get it, sorry.

        • Amen! Teresa B. The NWO has been in the making for a long time; but, for some reason, many people can’t seem to grasp the fact the Bush’s are a part of this too.
          Along with several other past presidents. Now, we have a president that just moves full-force forward with his orders. They don’t care about us.
          Christians remember: Romans 8:31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, then who can be against us?

          • Tracy,I guess some people are blinded and some people get to have their eyes opened by God.

          • Hi nice to see you. Yes agree on all counts after all lI read on Presidents, I like Kennedy for sec reasons, and look how that ended. I don’t like to think about people elect. love as family maybe, do the things that are against us. But they and the elected officials do. Greed and power I guess. I love that statement but then I think THANK GOD YOU ARE FOR US becaue everyone else IS against us!!! Blessings to you in Jesus Name, 🙂

          • there were sev diff arguments he had on issues from what I have read.

  • Jody: we were doomed many years ago, the people just did not have any time to face the possiblities this could possibly happen in our life time?

    I heard years ago from many people, ” Please I do not want to discussed Religion or Politics,”

    So here we are!

  • This for you NTEB and all of you here.Please don’t delete it or go ballistic..just try to show me where he is wrong.Is this a fair deal?. Now is your chance to prove me wrong and shut me up.

    Israel Myths – 10 Years Later
    It’s been nearly 10 years now since I excitedly approached the pastor of my little Christian church with my discovery that we had Israel all wrong, and that we were not living in the Last Days. Since then, so much has happened. I’ve met many of the growing number of like-thinking folks from all over the country who “get it.” I’ve written and spoken on the topic, and continue to collect study resources. I’ve openly challenged Christian leadership, and have even offered monetary rewards if it can be proven I’m wrong in my conclusions. 10 years later, I can honestly say that I have both paid a great price, and have become much richer, for embracing truths over myths. And I still have my money.

    The more I learn about my faith and the world around me, the more passionate I’ve become in exposing dangerous myths that have become prevalent in mainstream Christianity. Probably one of the most important truths I’ve learned is this: you know you are right when nobody can dispute you, but instead becomes angry or ignores you. Not a single member of my old congregation has made even the slightest attempt to reach out to me in my (presumed) error, and I know why: they know they cannot defend the doctrines I’ve questioned. Why, then, do they believe what they believe?”

    • I have a King, and His name is Jesus. He is the King of the Jews!
      Mat 2:1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
      Mat 2:2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

      • Please Brenda,you should know better.

        • You should know better.
          The truth will set you free…..just think…if you had real faith, you wouldn’t have to worry about being a Jew or a Gentile………..just a child of God! 🙂

          • Brenda do you know what the word gentile means? It does not mean non-jew. And yes this is very important to know,because this myth that gentile means non-jew is causing a lot of confusion.God bless.


          • I don’t care, and I don’t care for your nonsense.
            My mind is stayed upon God.
            Php 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

          • See there you go acting like a child and ignoring the truth to keep your false doctrine.

          • Mat 12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
            Mat 12:37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

  • “says, Redskins MUST change their name”

    “Redskins SHOULD change their name”

    There is a big difference there FYI, Whoever wrote this article obviously took whatever was said WAYYY out of proportion. Stop lying to people.

    • Well, I guess you’ve never see a movie about the mafia then, have you? They always “make suggestions”when they order you to do something…its the Chicago Way (Google it, don’t be lazy)

    • why?

  • Teresa: Did you ever think why NTEB allows DENNIS to continue his denial of God, possibly they planted this person on NTEB, or by now, they would of remove him?

  • Teresa: Nteb states there a PRETRIBULATION Web Site, yes?

    Then why do they allow all these Post- Tribbers voice there opinions on this web site in the first place?

    Something is fishy about there methods?

    • why would they do that for petes sake? There are enough who just disagree on here which blows my mind itself, isn’t that enough argument? Speaking against God is not breaking rules. I asked more than once why and got no answer as of yet. There is not a list to read of rules to join site there is the issue. Then since they read them supposedly, there should be a way to flag those folks and they are dropped by SITE or told to leave. Seems simple enough for me, but on other things they do not allow for diff of opinion which is wrong. If you put anything Worldy should be open.

    • STL I was thinking something else, HELP! Sorry. ok first on Trib discussion, I don’t do that cuz I don’t care. We don’t have that answer far as I see only what we think is said? I like the OT and NT and like to read what I know and understand not what to wonder about I guess. I answered the 2 in one, sorry am confused, a beautiful day out whats wrong!!!!!

    Gaza’s Nazi Salute
    ‘Palestinian’ Nazi Salute

    By Gil Ronen, INN – “In a surprisingly powerful and frank speech at Bar Ilan University, delivered in a calm and almost informal manner, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu tied between the Palestinian national movement and the Nazi regime in Germany.

    At the heart of the oration was the determination that Arab rhetoric notwithstanding, the ‘territories’ and ‘settlements’ are not the heart of the territorial conflict between Jews and Arabs – but that the conflict stems from the historic refusal of the Arabs to accept a Jewish state.

    Netanyahu provided quotes and evidence showing that the supreme leader pf the Palestinian Arabs in the first half of the 20th century, Mufti Hajj Amin al-Husseini, was actively involved in encouraging Adolf Hitler and his henchmen in their project of annihilating the Jewish people.

    The Jewish-Palestinian conflict began, said the prime minister, in 1921, when Arabs attacked Beit Haolim in Yafo (Jaffa), which housed new Jewish immigrants. They murdered several Jews, including famed writer Yosef Haim Brenner.

    ‘My own grandfather had arrived at Yafo, to the same house, one year earlier,’ said Netanyahu. ‘This attack was not against territories or settlements,’ he noted. ‘It was against the immigration of Jews to the Land of Israel.’

    The prime minister went on to list Arab pogroms against Jews in 1929 – when the Jewish community in Hevron was annihilated ‘with endless cruelty’ – and later in 1936-39. In 1947, the Arabs refused to accept a partition plan that gave the Jews a state, he said. In 1967, again, Arab nations formed ‘a ring of strangulation’ around Israel – but then, too, ‘there were no territories. There was no occupation. Unless Tel Aviv and Yafo are occupied.’” Read more.
