NFL Games Should Be Boycotted Until The Decisions Of Its Referees Are Reviewable, And A Hack Referee Is Fired

31 01 2023

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Over the years, the NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has been criticized; and many have called for his resignation.  But so far, he has weathered the storms.[2]  The latest criticism of the league comes in the form of biased refereeing in a championship game—where the referee’s decisions should be reviewable; and the hack ref Ronald Tolbert should be fired and never allowed to referee another game during his lifetime.[3]. Needless to say, Cincinnati Bengals’ fans are livid.[4]

My two favorite quarterbacks in the NFL are Joe Burrow of the Bengals and Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs.  Both are excellent and a credit to the sport.  I have followed “Joe Cool” since he came to LSU and joined “Coach O”—or the wonderful Cajun, Ed Orgeron—to win the national championship and the coveted Heisman Trophy.  Last weekend, they squared off in the AFC championship game, with Mahomes being a bit “gimpy” because of an ankle injury.

The game should have been decided by the athletes, not by some hack ref who is a disgrace to the sport, and has been elevated beyond his capabilities.  As always, Burrow was a gentleman after the game, and classy; and he praised both teams and their players.[5]. But the fans were irate, and justifiably so.  At a time when many Americans turn to sports as a relief from their day-to-day financial stresses, and other worries and frustrations[6], skewed results in football are the last thing that they need.

Thuggery In America

28 01 2023

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Moose Moosler commented at the UK’s MailOnline about the death in Memphis, Tennessee:

So it seems the ‘protestors’ don’t even know the 5 cops have already been fired and are up on charges of murder.  This nonsense has never been about what they say it is about.[2]

Since the anti-war demonstrations at Berkeley during the Vietnam War, and the Rodney King riots that began in Los Angeles, “professional” rioters have existed and spread their venom, like vicious vipers.

I have followed riots since my days in law school at Berkeley during that war, and then the Rodney King riots, and the burning of Washington D.C. after Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed in Memphis too.[3]

The thugs, slugs, hoods and mongrels of “Black Lives Matter,” Antifa and other far-Left groups have burned our cities; killed or injured innocent Americans including our police; and destroyed black and other businesses.  Yet, few have been incarcerated. 

Does law enforcement sometimes overreact?  Of course.[4]  Many officers are frustrated; others have resigned or taken early retirements; and it’s surprising that there are many left, certainly where riots have occurred.  Why risk one’s life, only to be attacked?

Who Controls America?

20 01 2023

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

I do not consider myself to be naïve.  Having spent two years in intelligence at the Pentagon with the highest security clearances possible at that time, and then having worked for three-and-a-half years in the United States Senate—and for many more years after that, working with the Congress and official Washington—I have seen both the good and the bad.  I was present when Joe Biden attended his first committee meeting, one month after his wife and daughter were killed in a tragic auto accident; and I had great sympathy for him.

I grew up in Hollywood (or Los Angeles), among the rich and famous; and I am not naïve about how the Harvey Weinsteins and their ilk have ruled that town for decades.  Women have been used and abused in both cities, like groupies at rock concerts.  It is what happens at the highest levels of power, throughout the world.  But every once in a while, something comes to my attention that incapsulates the evil that exists, and persists, better than I could describe it.  Last night it occurred in a monologue delivered by Tucker Carlson, which is worth repeating here.  I respectfully submit that it should be read (or viewed) in its entirety:

If you’re a normal person, it’s a pretty weird experience watching Joe Biden’s presidency get euthanized by his own party.  On one hand, there’s an undeniable thrill to it.  You have to admit that.  Biden is the most destructive president in American history.  More things have broken under his watch than under any other president.

Joe Biden deserves to be driven from office and disgraced, but for this?  Breaking federal classification rules, some of the stupidest and most dishonest laws Congress has ever passed?  It’s like arresting El Chapo for expired plates.  It’s missing the point, but it looks like that’s what’s going to happen.

It seems like every day, one of Joe Biden’s lawyers shows up with more sheaves of classified documents like a dog who has found another dead chipmunk under the house.  This bunch was in his office at Penn, the one paid for by the Communist Party of China.

These were found next to his sad, little midlife crisis sports car in a garage in Delaware and so on.  You keep waiting for the White House physician to announce another document trove has been discovered after a routine colonoscopy.  It could happen because at this point, you know exactly where this story is heading.

Permanent Washington does not want Joe Biden to run for president again.  This is how they’re sending that message.  Even CNN has decided to become interested in Joe Biden’s misdeeds two years into his presidency.  They’re doing segments in how classification laws protect this country from its mortal enemies like Russia.  So, you know for certain the order has gone out.  Biden is done.  What a missed opportunity this is.  If you’re looking for crimes that Joe Biden has committed, there is a very long list.

Our country is being invaded.  The world is on the brink of nuclear war.  American cities have become slums.  Our economy is in shambles.  Even our airplanes no longer take off on time.  It’s a disaster and Joe Biden and his staff have a hand in all of it.  In a country with a functioning government, Joe Biden would have been impeached before the first million illegal aliens crossed over our southern border, but no one did anything to stop it.  So now they’re arriving at the rate of a quarter-million a month.

GRIFF JENKINS: Customs and Border Protection sources exclusively tell Fox News more than 250,000 migrants were encountered at the border in the month of December, about as many people living in Scottsdale, Arizona, making it the highest month ever on record.  In Eagle Pass, Texas, the migrant surge continues.  Local Kinney County rancher Pam had a harrowing experience with migrants on her property.

RANCHER: I looked out the back and I could see three illegals walking up to the house.  I had gotten a gun, which is an AR-15.  I asked them, I said, “Please stop, go away,” and I had the gun in my hands and they just kind of looked at me and kind of smiled and I was like… “Just go away,” and they refused to do so. 

JENKINSThey’re on the other side of the glass trying to get in and not backing down?

RANCHER: Not backing down.  Even though I have a high-powerful rifle in my arms, they are not backing down.  That was scary.  

A rifle Joe Biden would like to take away from her.  So that, writ large, is the biggest story of our lifetimes.  It is the one thing Joe Biden has done that cannot be undone.  Our great-grandchildren are going to live with the consequences of this, but you’d never know it from watching most of the news.  There is an effective media blackout on Joe Biden’s immigration policies and other downstream effects on America.  There are too many strangers pouring in at once and as a result, the country is becoming chaotic.  Here’s a rare television news piece on what happened when officials in New York decided to house some of Joe Biden’s illegal aliens in a local hotel.

LAUREN SIMONETTI: An employee there says that migrants have made an absolute mess of the place.  You’re standing in front of it. Is that true?  

MADISON ALWORTH: Yeah, well, what we’re hearing from that employee is that the hotel is completely overrun.  He says, you know, of course, some people just looking for that better life, but as a result, the hotel is a mess and he fears for his safety.  

ROW NYC HOTEL EMPLOYEE FELIPE RODRIGUEZ: We don’t have any guests anymore.  They sold the entire hotel from the fourth floor to the 28th floor.  It’s all migrants.  So we got people who are getting drunk, using marijuana.  They are punching and beating their wives or their girlfriends.  We have teenagers running around wild around the hotel opening the fire exit doors and doing what teenagers do in the stairways and it’s a mess. 

“It’s a mess,” he said.  Of course, it is.  The whole country is a mess because Joe Biden has ignored immigration laws passed by the Congress.  That is a crime and it has killed huge numbers of Americans, hundreds of thousands dead from narcotics.

TOM WOLF, FORMER FENTANYL ADDICT: Fentanyl has changed the entire game here in San Francisco.  You can’t buy heroin out here anymore.  Nobody sells heroin and nobody uses heroin.  Everybody has transitioned over to fentanyl.  Fentanyl is the most dangerous drug to ever hit the streets in the United States in history.

SIMONETTI: Fentanyl has killed more than 70,000 Americans in 12 months.  Here in San Francisco, it’s the dominant drug.  It’s responsible for three-quarters of drug overdoses, brazen drug-dealing and rampant drug use in the shadow of city hall.  The same city hall, residents say, actively enable the fentanyl crisis.  

All of it.  Every gram came over an open border.  What’s notable as a political matter is that every one of these disasters, the fentanyl epidemic, the chaos and crime in our cities, the invasion underway through Texas, Arizona and California, all of those deeply concerned Americans.  We are not guessing at that.  Polls show it very clearly.

By contrast, how many voters do you think are lying awake right now worrying that public officials might violate some obscure federal classification law?  None, not a single person.  No one outside Washington cares or even understands the issue and yet it is classified documents, not our open borders, that the Justice Department is punishing Joe Biden for.  Why is that?  What’s going on here?  Well, it’s simple.  Washington is protecting itself.  Joe Biden alone is responsible for this crime.

He alone took home classified documents.  He didn’t have help in doing that, but allowing the country to be invaded, that’s not something you can do by yourself.  So, if Biden were to be taken down for opening the southern border, a lot of other people would go with them.  He had a lot of accomplices.  Permanent Washington doesn’t want that and ultimately and here’s the point: Permanent Washington is in charge.  It’s not the democracy you imagined.  We’re seeing that now.

So, if you want to understand, if you really want to understand how the American government actually works at the highest levels, and if you want to know why they don’t teach history anymore, one thing you should know is that the most popular president in American history was Richard Nixon.  Richard Nixon.  Yet somehow, without a single vote being cast by a single American voter, Richard Nixon was kicked out of office and replaced by the only unelected president in American history.  So, we went for the most popular president to a president nobody voted for.  Wait a minute, you may ask, why didn’t I know that?  Wasn’t Richard Nixon a criminal?

Wasn’t he despised by all decent people?  No, he wasn’t.  In fact, if any president could claim to be the people’s choice, it was Richard Nixon.  Richard Nixon was re-elected in 1972 by the largest margin of the popular vote ever recorded before or since.  Nixon got 17 million more votes than his opponent.  Less than two years later, he was gone.  He was forced to resign and in his place, an obedient servant of the federal agencies called Gerald Ford took over the White House.

How did that happen?  Well, it’s a long story, but here are the highlights and they tell you a lot.  Richard Nixon believes that elements in the federal bureaucracy were working to undermine the American system of government and had been doing that for a long time.  He often said that.  He was absolutely right.  On June 23, 1972, Nixon met with the then–CIA director, Richard Helms, at the White House.  During the conversation, which thankfully was tape-recorded, Nixon suggested he knew “who shot John,” meaning President John F. Kennedy.  Nixon further implied that the CIA was directly involved in Kennedy’s assassination, which we now know it was.  Helms’s telling response?  Total silence, but for Nixon, it didn’t matter because it was already over.  Four days before, on June 19, The Washington Post had published the first of many stories about a break-in at the Watergate office building. 

Unbeknownst to Nixon and unreported by The Washington Post, four of the five burglars worked for the CIA.  The first of many dishonest Watergate stories was written by a 29-year-old metro reporter called Bob Woodward.  Who exactly was Bob Woodward?  Well, he wasn’t a journalist.  Bob Woodward had no background whatsoever in the news business.  Instead, Bob Woodward came directly from the classified areas of the federal government.  Shortly before Watergate, Woodward was a naval officer at the Pentagon.

He had a top-secret clearance.  He worked regularly with the intel agencies.  At times, Woodward was even detailed to the Nixon White House, where he interacted with Richard Nixon’s top aides.  Soon after leaving the Navy, for reasons that have never been clear, Woodward was hired by the most powerful news outlet in Washington and assigned the biggest story in the country.  Just to make it crystal clear what was actually happening, Woodward’s main source for his Watergate series was the deputy director of the FBI, Mark Felt, and Mark Felt ran — and we’re not making this up — the FBI’s COINTELPRO program, which was designed to secretly discredit political actors, the federal agencies wanted to destroy — people like Richard Nixon.  And at the same time, those same agencies were also working to take down Nixon’s elected vice president, Spiro Agnew.  In the fall of 1973, Agnew was indicted for tax evasion and forced to resign.  His replacement was a colorless congressman from Grand Rapids called Gerald Ford.

What was Ford’s qualification for the job?  Well, he had served on the Warren Commission, which absolved the CIA of responsibility for President Kennedy’s murder.  Nixon was strong-armed into accepting Gerald Ford by Democrats in Congress.  “We gave Nixon no choice but Ford,” Speaker of the House Carl Albert later boasted.  Eight months later, Gerald Ford of the Warren Commission was the president of the United States.  See how that works?  So those are the facts, not speculation.  All of that actually happened.  None of it’s secret.  Most of it actually is on Wikipedia, but no mainstream news organization has ever told that story.  It’s so obvious, yet it’s intentionally ignored and as a result, permanent Washington remains in charge of our political system.

Unelected lifers in the federal agencies make the biggest decisions in American government and crush anyone who tries to rein them in and in the process, our democracy becomes a joke. Now, you may have noticed that the very first person in the Trump administration the agencies went after was Gen. Michael Flynn. Why Flynn? Because Mike Flynn was a career Army intel officer who ran the Defense Intelligence Agency. In other words, Mike Flynn knew exactly how the system worked, and as a result, he was capable of fighting back. Four days after Donald Trump’s inauguration, the FBI lured Mike Flynn into a meeting without his lawyer, concocted a series of fake crimes and forced him to resign.

So, that’s how things actually work in Washington.  Let’s stop lying about it.  Joe Biden, meanwhile, whooped like a hyena when the Justice Department destroyed Mike Flynn.  So, there is, we have to say, a certain perverse justice in watching something very similar happen to Joe Biden himself six years later.  Joe Biden does not deserve our sympathy.  He’s being shafted, but don’t weep for him, and yet, the rest of us do deserve a better system, an actual democracy.  When people nobody voted for run everything, you are not living in a free country.[2]

Can I attest to the accuracy of each and every fact and conclusion that Carlson has cited?  No, but they are close enough to what I know personally to be worth repeating here, and heeding.

Trump In 2024?

19 01 2023

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Donald Trump has enemies galore—both foreign and domestic—some of whom would wish him dead.  Abraham Lincoln was killed by those who hated him; and the same was true of John F. Kennedy.  An assassin tried to kill Ronald Reagan; and it is not beyond the pale of reason to believe that an attempt might be made on Trump’s life.  After all, the FBI raided his home in Florida, while its Secret Service guards stood by and let it happen.[2]

Trump is the antithesis of everything that Joe Biden represents.  Biden embraces woke that is evil incarnate—beyond all reckoning—and a growing threat to our civilization.  Crime is unleashed; and it’s as though the lunatics are running the asylum.  Biden is corrupt and should be impeached and imprisoned, inter alia, having accumulated vast wealth illegally while being a public servant.  Trump was a businessman; and the attacks on him surely have dissuaded others in business from ever running for public offices.  Why expose their lives and families to nonstop scrutiny and vicious attacks?

Assuming Trump runs, he might pick former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as his running mate.[3]. Philosophically they seem to be in tune; and Pompeo might be a positive influence on Trump—at least in terms of losing weight and slimming down.  After all, having been attacked nonstop since he began running for the presidency, food can often be a psychological refuge for Trump.

Recent polling shows Trump crushing Florida’s fine Governor Ron DeSantis, who may have a very bright political future after a second Trump presidency ends.[4]  Biden’s mental acuity keeps declining—and “flat-lining”—and the scandals swirling about him may doom him before next year’s elections.  The economy alone may sink his little ship.[5]  The fate of our great country may turn on these developments, and how we and our friends and enemies respond to them.[6]

The Tragedy That Is America Today

14 01 2023

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

God love them, many Americans are ignorant about politics, which has been true for generations.  Understandably they are focused on their day-to-day lives, and how to put food on their tables and a roof over their heads, and find schools that will educate their children.  Many have not moved far from where they were born and raised, and they have never traveled abroad.  But they have a gut and abiding sense about what is right and wrong.

Two tsunamis hit all of us: China’s Covid pandemic, and Brain Dead Joe Biden’s presidency.  Like whirlwinds, these two events turned things upside down.  Jobs were lost; businesses were shuttered; and lives were changed forever.  China has never paid reparations, much less in the trillions of dollars that are owed globally[2]; and waiting in the wings for Biden to croak are Willie Brown’s former ho Kamala Harris, and Nancy Pelosi’s California uber-Leftist relation Gavin Newsom.[3]

The Biden-Harris presidency has been a disaster of monumental proportions.  Our borders have been flung wide open, encouraging the cartels to bring China’s Fentanyl and other killer drugs into the country.[4]  Human trafficking has become the norm; and the tragedies have been unspeakable.[5]  There is nothing positive about the Biden-Harris presidency; and the hierarchy of the “progressive” Democrats know this better than anyone.[6]

Organized religion has been a threat to Biden, Pelosi and their ilk, who have masqueraded as devotees.  Even America’s smallest religions have been threatened; for example, as anti-Semitism has risen nationally and globally.  Yet, the sowers of evil will reap a whirlwind—or their just “rewards,” which are coming.  The pendulum swings, and it is moving now.

Will Kevin McCarthy’s Political Trajectory Approximate That Of Joseph McCarthy?

7 01 2023

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Kevin McCarthy has been elected Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives[2], replacing the infamous Nancy Pelosi who has ruled that chamber of America’s political elites with an iron fist, and made millions of dollars in the process.  Also, she and her colleagues in the Democratic Party—and their alter egos in the Leftist national media—were able to suppress rumors about her husband Paul’s alcoholism and bisexuality.[3]

Long forgotten by most of America was the political trajectory of another politician, Joseph McCarthy, who was tarred and feathered nationally in the middle of the last century, by the Democrats and their cohorts in the media.[4]  Kevin McCarthy seems ready-made for destruction.  He hails from Nancy Pelosi’s state of California, which is hated by many Americans.  He has accumulated millions while ostensibly serving his constituents; and he is arrogant beyond belief, and willing to crush his adversaries without thinking twice about doing it.

The Democrats have waged a war of destruction against Donald Trump, ever since he and his wife Melania came down the escalator at Trump Tower in New York City, and began their quest for the presidency.  They continue to do this, to prevent Trump from running for election again.  They tried to destroy Richard Nixon when he had the gall to run against the immoral John F. Kennedy[5]; and they went after Ronald Reagan too, with Iran Contra allegations.  Kevin McCarthy ought to be easy pickings for them, like low-hanging fruit.[6]

As I have written many times, when I left the U.S. Senate, I concluded that the Democrats were “evil” but smart, while the Republicans were “Neanderthals” and dumb. I have been an Independent ever since, and never wavered with respect to that decision.[7]  Lots of us may show our disdain for Kevin McCarthy in next year’s elections by not voting—assuming he is still the Speaker then—which would be tragedy for our great country.  It might leave Brain Dead Joe Biden in charge, to do more damage than he’s done already.[8]

Perhaps one word, “Shame,” comes to mind when one thinks about the mess in Washington, D.C., which both our allies and our enemies globally cannot believe.
