According to a report authored by Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake of Arizona (both Republicans) the military paid out $53 million to sports teams to stage those patriotic displays you often see. This was covered in a local news story in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on November 6, 2015.
The patriotic displays are designed with two functions in mind, to promote patriotism in general and to recruit for the military. While it is incorrect to say that players are paid to stand and show respect for the national anthem and the flag, according to the game operations manual:
“The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”
The displays, which are often lavish affairs, including military flyovers, are often paid-for activities, though we have no way of knowing which events are paid for or how much is paid for each event. Moreover, the $53 million price tag discovered in 2015, and reported before the year ended, likely included other costs to perform these events: such as pay for service members or fuel for aircraft doing flyovers, or other production costs.
Collectively speaking, sports teams received over $53 million in 2015, however in 2016 the NFL actually returned fees it received for the ceremonies themselves, to the tune of $724,000. So, while direct fees were returned for the displays, other forms of paid advertising, on-site recruiting, use of space, and signage were not returned.
So, while there is a cost for these events, the NFL no longer gets paid to allow the event to take place. The production costs are born by the sponsor, but the time is freely given. The game operations manual prescribes a player protocol for the playing of the national anthem, a standard no longer enforced within the NFL.
The military continue, as far as we know, to pay the production costs for these events, despite the fact the NFL players themselves are no longer compelled to show respect for the event.
VIDEO: A Tired-Looking Hillary Clinton Shills for ‘The Great Reset’ Agenda at Globalist Forum
Did she run out of adrenochrome or something?
A recently recorded video of failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who looks like she missed her most recent appointment for a fetal-cell spine injection, shows the two-time loser shilling for “The Great Reset” agenda.
Although Clinton does not mention “The Great Reset” by name, she endorses the technocratic socialist agenda that is obscured by the term.
“We’re going to have to take a hard look at how we can better frame how the markets work so that we begin to move away from the shareholder-centric approach, from the short-term returns that practically every business CEO that I’ve ever worked with, or talked with, has said, you know, distorts the market,” a demonic-looking Clinton said at the 2020 New Economy Forum hosted by Bloomberg.
“I think it’s time to look at what can make capitalism market operations work much more effectively and, frankly, equally to help build a real economy by shifting some of the incentives and assumptions that have grown into the system over the last fifty years,” the ghoulish former secretary of state added.

Big League Politics has reported on the many globalist operatives who are endorsing the Great Reset as a way to permanently transform society while the world is gripped with mass hysteria over the COVID-19 scamdemic and destabilized due to media-promoted race riots and migrant invasions:
A leading globalist elite closely associated with the World Economic Forum has openly predicted that the world will never return to a sense of normalcy that existed prior to the coronavirus pandemic. Klaus Schwab made the concerning claim in his new book, “The Great Reset.”
“Many of us are pondering when things will return to normal,” wrote Schwab in The Great Reset. “The short response is: never. Nothing will ever return to the ‘broken’ sense of normalcy that prevailed prior to the crisis because the coronavirus pandemic marks a fundamental inflection point in our global trajectory.”
Schwab went on to predict that human history would be differentiated between an era before the pandemic and what comes after. He likened the historical event of the coronavirus pandemic to the birth of Christ, a peculiar slight to Christians who view the life of Jesus as an event quite unlike the spread of a disease.
“Radical changes of such consequence are coming that some pundits have referred to as ‘before coronavirus’ (BC) and ‘after coronavirus’ (AC) era. We will continue to be surprised by both the rapidity and unexpected nature of these changes – as they conflate with each other, they will provoke second-, third-, fourth- and more-order consequences, cascading effects and unforeseen outcomes,” writes Schwab.
In addition to being a longstanding patron of the globalist WEF’s yearly Davos gatherings, Schwab was a steering committee member of the Bilderberg Meetings. He was listed as an “international” member of the Bilderberg group’s executives, despite being a German national.
Managerial elites have spoken in open terms about their plans to redistribute the private property of average people to megacorporations and governments, compel the public to eat insects as a replacement for meat, and to gradually eliminate the use of personal automobiles.
Schwab staked out his vision of digitized corporate dominance of society in a recent speech given to the World Economic Forum.
If the vote steal against President Donald Trump is not overturned, the world is looking at a thousand years of darkness with all of these satanic elites on the same page ready to put the boot around humanity’s neck forever.
