Burgess Owens: The NFL, the flag & the globalists



A little less than 18 years ago, the former president of ABC News David Westin made a decision that prior American media leaders would have considered unthinkable. Our nation had days before experienced an attack on its homeland killing over 3,000 of our fellow countrymen and women.

As an overnight response, Americans of all political persuasions began to fly the American flag.

I would surmise that not since the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor has such an organic display of patriotism by the American people been seen on every government building and seemingly every home and car antenna.

Contrary to the reaction of the rest of the nation Westin, within days of 9/11, chose a strategy of “neutrality” stating, “When you’re reporting the news, you should be reporting the news; not taking a position.” With concerns that their global audience might perceive them as too American, too “nationalistic” ABC news adopted a policy that their anchors and journalists would not wear the American Flag on their lapel.

Years later when asked his no American flag stance, Westin was quoted, “I believe to this day that it was the right decision.”

In 2007, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama made a decision that every other candidate, post 9/11, would have considered unthinkable. He stopped wearing the American Flag on his lapel stating that he would no longer wear an American flag lapel pin, because it had become a substitute for “true patriotism.”

During the 2017 NFL season, dozens of NFL athletes made a decision that generations of NFL players prior would have considered unthinkable. They kneeled, sat, stretched, raised their fist or stayed in the locker room while our Flag, culture and the sacrifice of countless millions were being reverenced.

The NFL leadership chose a “no action” policy emboldening their employees’ anti-Flag protest. Interestingly, the NBA leadership, with 80 percent of its players Black and sharing the same Social Justice sentiments, made clear in their pre-season statements that these actions would not be tolerated on their court.

The NFL anti-Flag protest has been very fluid in its purpose, from its beginning. The initial kneeler, Colin Kaepernick, stated: “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”

Ironically, this is the same oppressed Black American who received a guaranteed $12 million salary that season to throw a football. It is the same Black American who had not prior to kneeling shown any initiative of pulling his fellow millionaires peers together to serve his community and find solutions for the decades of misery found there. He had also not found the time or interest to vote at anytime in his life.

Christopher Lucas, a recruiter with Recruiting Station Denver, takes a photo with Rob Gronkowski, a tight end for the New England Patriots, during the Military Appreciation Game at the Sports Authority Stadium in Denver Nov. 12, 2017. The goal of the Salute to Service campaign is to fund programs and provide resources that positively impact veterans and active duty military members and their families. Since 2011, the NFL has raised more than $17 million for its military non-profit partners, to include the Pat Tillman Foundation, USO, TAPS and Wounded Warrior Project. The NFL also raised $1,795,255 on a 2017 donation campaign on Twitter. (Courtesy)

After witnessing during the Presidential campaign the demands, violence and divisiveness of Social Justice warriors like Black Lives Matter, (i.e. urban rioting, flag burning, police assassination and “Pigs in a Blanket, fry ’em like bacon” anti-police demonstrations), the NFL decided against neutrality and instead…to go all in.

The NFL has concluded that social injustice issues can only be resolved by transferring wealth from rich white owners to rich Black players, instead of demanding the players own financial “skin in the game.”

According to one of the negotiating players, Eric Reid, the NFL buy off will come from funds previously directed to breast cancer awareness and veterans “Salute to Service.”

Close to $90 million was donated by the NFL, approximately $20 million to Dream Corps, a “social justice accelerator” organization run by a self-avowed Marxist, Van Jones. $40 million would go to a brand new non-profit organization overseen part-time by inexperienced millionaire athletes.

The NFL denied military veterans a “Please Stand” Super Bowl advertisement, because it was deemed “too political”. Interestingly before the kneeler teams had been eliminated, NBC had committed to show each demonstrator and highlight their grievances during the singing of the National Anthem.

Apparently, the NFL deemed the Players’ anti-flag political advertisement as acceptable “political speech.”

The latest “shooting itself in the foot” decision by this industry is the NFL Players Association’s nominee for the “Player of the Year” who best symbolizes the contribution to his community.

One of the nominees is former NFL player, Colin Kaepernick. For decades winners of this award, including Reggie White and Walter Payton, have been selected due to their unselfish acts that have brought Americans together. Never, prior to this year, has there been a nominee who has so successfully divided America at its core due to his disdain for our country, flag and law enforcement.

A question that would be appropriate to ask at this time, Commissioner Goodell, who represents the fan base that the NFL is now committed to?

NBC will be broadcasting the NFL’s 2018 Super Bowl game in 180 countries and 25 different languages worldwide. The Commissioner has openly discussed the idea of holding a future Super Bowl game in London. Is it possible that the NFL leaders and owners view their organization through the same eyes as the globalist president of ABC News, David Westin and former President Obama?

Do they share the same globalist view of prioritizing increasing their value in the international market by changing the NFL’s Brand to one that is more attractive…. “global neutral” or anti-American? This vision would explain the “in your face” arrogance that permeates from the NFL Commissioner and why losing over 23 millions American viewers from one playoff season to the next doesn’t seem to phase him.

The NFL owners recently renewed his contract for $200 million, $3.5 million a year with growth incentives up to $50 million a year.

Hmmmm….if we were to follow the money trail, this appears like a vision of a “global neutral” NFL. How best to grow globally than to accommodate the anti-American, Socialist/Marxist call of Social Justice and simultaneously mitigate the loss of millions of disgruntled American NFL fans with the replacement of millions more from England, Mexico and other foreign markets.

This brings to my mind an age-old adage: “Pride comes before the Fall”

Bezos-Linked Thinktank Official Calls for Michael Anton’s Execution for Exposing Anti-Trump Color Revolution



A top official with the billionaire-backed Berggruen Institute has called for the kidnapping and execution of writer Michael Anton for exposing the color revolution coup that is taking place to oust President Donald Trump from office regardless of November’s voting results.

Claremont Institute President Ryan Williams highlighted the grotesque tweet made by Vice President of Programs Nils Gilman comparing Anton to French fascist sympathizer Robert Brasillach:

The Berggruen Institute has collaborated intently with the Washington Post in the past. The rag, owned by Amazon founder and technocratic globalist Jeff Bezos, worked with Berggruen on WorldPost, which later became Noema Magazine. They regularly publish pretentious drivel that virtually nobody reads.

Big League Politics has reported about the coup attempt that is in the works through the Soros-backed Transition Integrity Project:

A Soros-backed “election integrity” group is setting the stage for a revolution against President Donald Trump after November’s election.

The Transition Integrity Project, an organization featuring a bipartisan group of Trump haters, is claiming that President Donald Trump will cause violence if he disputes the upcoming election results. They are running simulations that they claim indicate that Trump and his supporters will create mayhem.

“All of our scenarios ended in both street-level violence and political impasse,” said Rosa Brooks, a professor of law and policy at Georgetown University, who set up the TIP. “The law is essentially … it’s almost helpless against a president who’s willing to ignore it,” she added.

Revolver noted that Brooks is an operative of George Soros with ties to his Open Society Institute going back decades. She served as Special Counsel to the President at the Open Society Institute in New York from 2006-07.

Brooks’ deep connections to Soros have helped her successfully navigate the ranks of the Washington D.C. elite. She was senior adviser to Assistant Secretary Harold Hongju Koh at the U.S. State Department. She taught at the University of Virginia School of Law before moving over to Georgetown. She is also on the Advisory Committee of National Security Action and the Steering Committee of the Leadership Council for Women in National Security. Her deep state bona fides are second to none.

Two of the Republicans who participated in Brooks’ study are neocons Bill Kristol and David Frum. They were the type of individuals tasked with war gaming as President Trump, the man who they have devoted their careers to opposing. Kristol is now funded by a Democrat oligarch and Frum continues to parrot Russian collusion lies to this very day.

“Our scenario exercises did not end in good places, but important to note that this does not mean that there is something inevitable about chaos and constitutional crisis in the coming months – just that these particular exercises suggest that these are real possibilities,” Brooks said about her study’s findings.

“The goal of the exercises was not to give people nightmares, but rather to identify possible inflection points to prevent or mitigate catastrophic outcomes to the 2020 presidential election,” she added.

Brooks hopes that policymakers act on the findings of her study, adding that “state governors, attorneys general, legislative leaders and secretaries of state need to think through these issues now, and understand the electoral system and relevant laws now, and not wait until Election Day to think about everything that could go wrong.”

Darren Beattie of Revolver has also exposed this dastardly plot by the left-wing fifth column that has implanted itself at the highest levels of government:

The far left is playing for keeps. If conservatives are not willing to do whatever is necessary to defeat this threat, America and Western Civilization will be no more.
