Foles and Co. had that “steel” I wrote about last year. Impressive. What I said about 6, 7, etc. will have to wait a bit. This NE guy will just shut up now.
The Patriots win. Again.
I said the Patriots would be in SB LI. They were. I said they’d beat the … ? … whoever they beat last year. They did. Then, last year, immediately after that predictable victory, I said the people in Boston were serious about coming back this year, this month, tomorrow. (Consult the Feb. 2017 archives for that and so much more). They meant it and they did it. They’re serious about winning again too. They will.
Still got some seats left! At a bargain price… ESPN.
And, still they won’t be finished. I’ve said previously that Brady and Co. would win number six to tie the Steelers for all-time wins and then win no. 7 for the record. I’m not sure 7 will follow 6 in succession next year but anything’s possible. Then, this particular dynasty might (might…) be finished. Time will tell. It’s also telling that Brady, Gisele’s alleged protestations aside, also predicts 2 more SB wins.
*Last year I ran some memes about the Falcons and their “heartbreaking” loss, which I commenced dropping before they actually lost. It now occurs to me that eagles and falcons are near aviary twins. So, I could repeat the memes, merely striking one for the other, name-wise. I won’t. I’m not that cruel and it’s not necessary.*
There’s a reason for all this, for the unstoppable perfection. I covered that pretty well last year for SB LI. A few days ago I heard some sports commentator expound that even the Pats haters should take a moment to appreciate the uniqueness of what we’ve witnessed these past two decades out of NE; it’s something special in sports history. Most won’t and that’s okay. In fact, it may be better so.
One of the two positions must be true: 1) either the Pats don’t notice and/or don’t care about the opposition opinions, or; 2) they feed off of it. If it’s the later, then there’s a lot of food for the feast: it really is New England vs. The World.
BOSTON (CBS) – “New England vs. Everybody” is more than just a shirt – it’s reality, according to a new poll.
A survey from Monmouth University finds that 37 percent of Americans are rooting for the Philadelphia Eagles to win Super Bowl LII, compared to just 16 percent who want another Patriots championship.
If you hate them down now, they will become more powerful than you could possibly imagine…
Powerful like tomorrow evening. 28 – 24, NE.
PS: as noted at FP News this week, this could also be the H3N2 Flu Bowl…
Hello all veterans and others!
Consider this the Saturday football halftime report. They got a game in Starkville right now.
Anyway, I couldn’t decide on a topic so here are two:
On May 22, 1949, former Secretary of Defense James Forrestal fell to his death from the sixteenth floor of the Naval Medical Center in Bethesda. An investigation by a Navy review board found no definitive cause for his death, which was assumed by many to be suicide.
On May 2, 1957, Senator Joseph McCarthy died from acute hepatitis at the Bethesda hospital. Just a few days earlier, he’d been admitted to the hospital with a knee injury. No cause for the hepatitis was ever given. No autopsy was conducted.
On November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated while visiting Dallas, Texas. An autopsy conducted at the Bethesda Naval Medical Center late that evening resulted in controversy over the extent of the president’s wounds and how they ultimately were caused. The wounds viewed by many eyewitnesses in Dallas and Bethesda weren’t reflected in the final Warren Commission report.
Inflation is not caused by the butcher, the baker, or the auto maker, although they usually get blamed. On the contrary, by producing real wealth, they fight the effects of inflation. Inflation is the work of government alone, since government alone controls the creation of currency.
In a true free-market society, the only way a person or organization can legitimately obtain wealth is through production. “Making money” is no different from “creating wealth,” and money is nothing but a certificate of production. In our world, however, the government can create currency at trivial cost, and spend it at full value in the marketplace. If taxation is the expropriation of wealth by force, then inflation is its expropriation by fraud.
To inflate, a government needs complete control of a country’s legal money. This has the widest possible implications, since money is much more than just a medium of exchange. Money is the means by which all other material goods are valued. It represents, in an objective way, the hours of one’s life spent in acquiring it. And if enough money allows one to live life as one wishes, it represents freedom as well. It represents all the good things one hopes to have, do, and provide for others. Money is life concentrated.
There. No time for a pic. Gotta drink. Night. – P
Per a follow-up promise I ran the following at FP today:
One. If not a total break with the game, then with the NFL. Consider college ball or HS. Or, better yet, run some plays yourself in the backyard.
Two. Speaking of running. Fall afternoons make for great times to go for a run, walk, or jog. Get out and get moving. Being healthy is a prime prepper activity.
Three. Hit the gym. Weights build muscle, which may come in handy, SHTF or not. No, you don’t have to be a 300-pound steroid monster like some of the kneelers. Just a little toning will go a long way.
Four. Speaking of gyms, why not add boxing, MMA, or some other martial art to the regimen? Beyond insulting our culture and values, some of the commie SJW types are actually dangerous. Learn to handle yourself. Hone your skills.
Five. Speaking of martial, practice the long-range martial art: riflery. Head to the range and hit some targets. Mix it up. Add in pistol and shotgun work. Three-gun fun.
Six. Football in America has kind of become synonymous with overeating junk food and mass consumption of alcohol. There’s nothing wrong with a little but A LOT leads to poor health. Take your new free time to clean up the diet.
**By the way, yes, I am obviously recommending alternatives that our enemies would rather you NOT do – so much more reason to try them.
In related news: I’m not sure if I announced it here but we have reinvigorated the older, Drudge-style Prepper News Site. Please give that your daily attention.
Trump vs. the NFL (No Fans Left?) is just another facet of the larger America vs. Anti-America. Whether one gets caught up in the politicization of the game or the infantile nature of the game itself matters little. It’s the culture war, stupid.
With all that’s in the media about kneeling, “free speech,” and burning jerseys, I wonder if something else is being purposely obscured. “Look! A Squirrel!” Just a thought.
Could it be the debt? Or a pending depression? Maybe it’s more war – always popular. Maybe in Korea. Or, perhaps in Syria?
If Americans ever cared to be serious, they might look for a moment at what happened in Syria last week with mild trepidation. A legion of U.S.-backed ISIS terrorists (we back ISIS, you know) attempted to kill or capture a squad of Russian peacekeepers (the Russians are promoting peace, namely by getting rid of terrorists). Things didn’t work out so well for our proxies:
Something rather unprecedented just happened in Syria: US backed “good terrorist” forces attempted a surprise attack against Syrian government forces stationed to the north and northeast of the city of Hama. What makes this attack unique is that it took place inside a so-called “de-escalation zone” and that it appears that one of the key goals of the attack was to encircle in a pincer-movement and subsequently capture a platoon of Russian military police officers deployed to monitor and enforce the special status of this zone. The Russian military police forces, composed mainly of soldiers from the Caucasus region, fought against a much larger enemy force and had to call for assistance. For the first time, at least officially, Russian special operations forces were deployed to rescue and extract their comrades. At the same time, the Russians sent in a number of close air support aircraft who reportedly killed several hundred “good” terrorists and beat back the attack (Russian sources speak of the destruction of 850 fighters, 11 tanks, three infantry fighting vehicles, 46 armed pickup trucks, five mortars, 20 freighter trucks and 38 ammo supply points; you can see photos of the destroyed personnel and equipment here). What also makes this event unique is the official reaction of the Russians to this event.
Head of the Main Operations Department at Russia’s General Staff Colonel General Sergei Rudskoi declared that:
“Despite agreements signed in Astana on September 15, gunmen of Jabhat al-Nusra and joining them units that don’t want to comply with the cessation of hostilities terms, launched a large-scale offensive against positions of government troops north and northeast of Hama in Idlib de-escalation zone from 8 am on September 19 (…) According to available data, the offensive was initiated by American intelligence services to stop a successful advance of government troops east of Deir ez-Zor“.
Today, other Russian officials have added a not-so-veiled threat to this accusation. The Russian Defense Ministry’s spokesman, Major General Igor Konashenkov has declared that:
Russia unequivocally told the commanders of US forces in Al Udeid Airbase (Qatar) that it will not tolerate any shelling from the areas where the SDF are stationed (…) Fire from positions in regions [controlled by the SDF] will be suppressed by all means necessary.
This is unprecedented on many levels. First, the Russians clearly believe that this attempt to kill or capture a platoon of the Russian military police was planned by the United States. The fact that they are making this accusation officially shows the degree of irritation felt by the Russians about the duplicity of the Americans. Second, this is the first time, at least to my knowledge, that Russian Spetsnaz forces had to be sent in to rescue a surrounded Russian subunit. All Spetsnaz operators survived, but three of them were wounded in the operation (the Russians are not saying how badly). The close air support by very low flying SU-25 aircraft was obviously coordinated by Spetsnaz forward air controllers and probably saved the day. In other words, this was a close call and things could have ended much more badly (just imagine what the Takfiri crazies would have done, on video, to any captured Russian serviceman!). Finally, a US-organized attack on what was supposed to be a “de-confliction” zone combined with an attempt to capture Russian soldiers raises the bar for American duplicity to a totally new level.
Leaving aside questions like, “Why are we concerned about Syria at all?” and “Why do we support the same terrorists there who actively attack us here?”, I’ll just remind that Russia has 7,000 nuclear weapons – an arsenal to make Rocket Man’s missiles look like Roman Candle toys.
Could it be the real issues, stupid? Might the foolishness on television take a backseat to actual, deadly reality? We may find out. But – and this post is a rambler’ – we have confirmed the stupidity part. Aside from spending six hours staring at a glowing box of nonsense while shoveling in 6,000 calories each day, American’s can’t even answer the simplest of questions anymore: 75% of polled adults cannot name all three branches of government.
“Football, television, and … Trump?”
Or does close only count for “protests” and Spetsnaz hand grenades?
In “America” this weekend President Trump entered into a war of words with the overweight, illiterate, felonious millionaire class. (The pink comes next month). More proof his base is abandoning him came today as millions of semi-conscious cucks ignored Trump’s admonitions and drunkenly starred at an amp-up spectacle of degeneracy on Plato’s Electric Cave™.
More serious doings were afoot in the Deutschland, as a seemingly suicidal electorate choose yet another term of the globalist thaumaturge Angela Merkel. The good news (if any) is the pole-vaulting national entry of the AfD.
And this process is really just getting started. As Americans are slowly but surely turning off the hissy ft antics of athletes, owners, and advertisers who hate them, so Germans (all Western Europeans) are slowly coming around to the massive transformation of their land and their culture. Just a few more rapes, murders, arsons, elderly home displacements, bombings, and Christmas market drive-thrus should do it. 2021 will come.
Glückwünsche, dreckige hexe. Daily Mail.
People, even the blindest and deafest, begin to understand what’s going on. Even back in America.
Back here, this weekend, another deranged lunatic walked into another church and opened fire on Christians. (And, yes, once again the bad guy with a gun was stopped by a good buy with a gun). Nikki Haley concernedly called from New York, offering to take a break from her new job of steering the U.S. into dual nuclear wars and ban some Confederate flags or something. She rested easy, assured that this shooter was a black man from Sudan. Her parting words on the phone were “memory hole!”
Maybe. Maybe not this time. Maybe someone will wake up.
But, for now, back to kneeling before the electric altar of advertising for some exciting kneeling. Take a knee!
Thank God we know now just how the Falcons lost in such spectacular fashion. It wasn’t the Russians. It wasn’t Trump. The electoral college had nothing to do with it. The KKK was not involved. And it certainly wasn’t a lack of talent and discipline when facing a vastly superior team. No.
It was Lady Gaga. Atlanta WR Mohamed Sanu (rhymes with coo coo) explains:
Wide receiver Mohamed Sanu told the NFL Network’s Good Morning Football on Friday that Lady Gaga’s 40-minute halftime performance “definitely did” impact the team’s play in the second half.
“Usually, halftime is only like 15 minutes, and when you’re not on the field for like an hour, it’s just like going to work out, like a great workout, and you go sit on the couch for an hour and then try to start working out again,” Sanu said on the NFL Network, via by CBS Sports.
Sanu said he doesn’t “know if you can simulate something like” the lengthy halftime break.
Leading up to past Super Bowl appearances, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has had his team stop for a half hour in the middle of practice to simulate the halftime performance.
Bill was cheating again. Neither the Falcons, nor any other team, could ever simulate a halftime break during their practices. Unthinkable. Bill. Cheating. Again. Heck, I’ll bet he messed with the time-space continuum in order to warp the Pats straight through halftime – probably in cahoots with Gaga. Gaga-gate. Five game suspension!
Gaga frantically communicates with Belichick via “hidden mic” earpiece as Sanu catches on…. Getty.
This is pitiful and delusional even by Loserville standards. They’ll have a hard time topping that after the Pats win SB LII next year.
