Think about American culture and sports. Americans know and care about the rules in sports. The rules are critical. Missed calls by NFL officials may be discussed for weeks on end. No such thing as: “We can’t comment on an ongoing investigation.” Instant replay is for all to see. Sports writers are OK with being critical of coaches, teams, players, the rule book, the league, referees, team owners, when the season starts and ends, etc.

Away from sports, certain stories appear to be off limits to people who work for newspapers and TV news networks. Are these people given permission to go out and to do interviews related to public policy? If elected officials and people who run government agencies are not available to be interviewed, that should become the story.

Newspeople avoid reporting/asking questions on:

Wasteful and ineffective US Dept. of Homeland Security spending.

Wasteful and ineffective US Dept. of Defense Spending.

$51.6 billion (every 12 months) Homeland Security Vote of confidence:

Drugs come from all over, Canfield said. Seattle, Tri-Cities, Spokane, through northern counties, from Canada and elsewhere. Interstate 90, state Route 17 and U.S. Route 2 all cut through the center of the state, Grant County, making it a hotspot for drug trafficking.”

In the news:

January 14, 2023 For The Win

How the Seattle Seahawks making the playoffs led to the NFL’s latest officiating controversy, explained

“After multiple controversial officiating decisions in Sunday’s playoff-shaping game between the Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks, multiple executives and coaches said the NFL needs to reevaluate how it chooses and trains its officiating staff for future seasons.”

Many comments here.


After each game, the press has access to coaches and players. All sorts of information is available all of the time.

In government, it is fully understood that people will not have access to complete information through everyday channels.

Ever hear of a Freedom of Information Act Request in sports? How about a denied FOIA request?

Ever see a pro football coach or quarterback refer reporters to his press secretary for answers? Presidents do so on a daily basis. Professionals are hired to provide only the desired version of answers to questions.

Ever see a pro football coach or quarterback refer reporters to a public information officer for answers to questions?

Homeland Security is a scam

Love to see sports writers report on Homeland Security funding and performance.

Regular newspeople appear to be forbidden to ask questions in this area.

Questions newspeople will not ask:

Have opioid lawsuits or a $51.6 billion (every 12 months) US Dept. of Homeland Security created any shortage of cartel product anywhere in the US?

January 13, 2023 WSBTV

‘Operation Ghost Busted:’ 8 armed and dangerous suspects wanted for drug trafficking, FBI says

GWOT security protocols and big budgets are unable to keep large amounts of methamphetamine, fentanyl, heroin and alprazolam from showing up in in Georgia.

It’s all reported as a big success by TV newspeople.

Question for newspeople:

Has General Milley’s Operation Macho Swagger reduced access to cartel product anywhere in the US?

Has there been enough time for newspeople to ask questions?

Newspeople remain silent.

April 1, 2020 C-SPAN

Looks like cartels responded to the JCS Chairman by moving more product into Hometown, USA.

WWII costume reminds us of a time before decades of undeclared/unwon wars stacked up.

The Department of Defense track record goes back to 1949.

Both major parties and the press seem to be OK with undeclared/unwon wars.

Zero Questions from Newspeople

Federal DEA agents swing into action after federal US Dept. of Homeland Security agents fail to keep 3,552 pounds of methamphetamine and 66 kilograms of cocaine from moving past strict post 911/GWOT security protocols at border crossings and ports of entry, then showing up in Norco, California:


DEA agents make historic drug bust; seize 3,552 pounds of methamphetamine

United States Department Of Homeland Security Annual Budget

Every 12 months:

$51.672 billion (FY 2020)

If sending US troops to Afghanistan and creating a $51.6 billion (every 12 months) US Dept. of Homeland Security was meant to keep bad people from coming here to do bad things, why are drug cartels able to move product into all 50 states?

Source: DEA High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTA) program

“There are currently 33 HIDTAs, and HIDTA-designated counties are located in 50 states, as well as in Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the District of Columbia.”

Look for newspeople to ask zero questions in this area.

Port Angeles

Local people find drugs and report to local (not federal) law enforcement authorities. Federal employees create news story and say that federal agents used a K-9 to “seize” the drugs.

Question for CBP:

Why does the news story created by CBP not line up with local reports?

Mainstream newspeople remain silent.

Love To See Sports Writers Report on DOD Funding and Performance

The Dept. of Defense was nowhere to be found on 911. We haven’t won a war since.

It feels like the people who run the Pentagon specialize in undeclared/unwon wars.

Any college or pro football coach would have been fired a dozen times over for what DOD has done with the US Armed Forces during the fake GWOT era.
