It’s a big government operation. After the catastrophic military failure on 911, the response was big DOD budgets and a US Dept. of Defense that continues a decades-long tradition of not being able to stay out of or win undeclared wars in distant lands. A military jet flyover at the opening of the game is an annual reminder of all this.

911 was a reminder that bad people might try to come here and do bad things. DHS was created, and the old routine of going to have lunch in Canada with only your standard driver’s license was done away with.

Love to see newspeople interview the US Dept. of Homeland Security & ask:

Are passports/enhanced/REAL IDs effective in keeping cartel drugs out of the US?

Standard driver’s licenses have not been accepted at the border since 2009.

Today, a $51.6 billion (every 12 months) US Dept. of Homeland Security fails to create any shortage of opioids in the Puget Sound area. A major show of force prior to and during the big game reminds the public of the impressive capabilities of this giant federal agency. Newspeople will avoid asking questions on Homeland Security funding and performance.

TV newspeople skip asking questions and play the role of federal public affairs staff instead:

The folks who can’t keep fentanyl trafficking cartels from moving product into various US communities are keeping the Super Bowl safe.

No Credible Threat

The War on Terror has prompted law enforcement authorities to calm the public by looking into the future and announcing that no credible threat exists.

Newspeople play along by not asking questions.

If the good guys can tell what the bad guys will do before they do it-surely, these powerful crime fighting tools will be used to shut down gang and cartel activity, heroin trafficking, bank robberies, mass casualty shootings, etc.

Life wasn’t meant to change after the big Saddam Hussein & Osama bin Laden takedowns.

DHS, FBI cite ‘no credible threats’ as law enforcement prepares for Super Bowl

“…more than 40 law enforcement agencies were involved in planning security efforts…”

Clear bags required…”

“Personnel with the department’s Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Office have tested the air to make sure it is safe from biological or chemical threats.”

Crackdown on Fake Retail Products

“CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.”

Love to see newspeople ask:

How do you keep terrorists and their weapons out by checking retail items after they show up at retail locations inside the US?

Did the confiscated items make it through any port of entry?

As always, zero questions from newspeople. Last year:

Each year, at the Super Bowl, the US Dept. of Homeland Security promotes their own image Re: preventing criminal activity. Why do these impressive capabilities fail to keep meth and heroin trafficking cartels from moving product into the US?

Welcome Home Troops

Violent drug cartels, specifically the Sinaloa Cartel and Jalisco New Generation Cartel, are deliberately pushing deadly fentanyl into our communities…”

Love to see newspeople ask:

If special games require special security-what keeps regular games safe? Crowd size/capacity is similar at several stadiums.

Are fans less safe at regular games?

What prevents terror strikes at hundreds of events & locations unsupervised by federal authorities?

What stops terrorists from going 2 states over and driving a truck across the playground at a daycare center?

“…at least five times more highly trained K-9s will be in the area sniffing out safety threats during the Super Bowl and all the events surrounding it than normal.”

The Military Flyover

We are the very best at militarized pageantry for pro sports events.

In some cases, the flyover takes place at stadiums that are covered:


Admittedly, the flyover was a bit tough as SoFi is a covered stadium so it wasn’t readily seen by the 70,000+ in attendance.”

Ongoing militarization of American culture:


The Navy released digital trading cards Thursday for the 15 service members involved in the flyover.”

Where are the trading cards for currently serving four-star officers and high level DOD civilians who have been associated with wars won by the US?


Newspeople play the role of federal public affairs staff as authorities prepare for the Super Bowl.

Sorry, no time for newspeople to ask:

Did the advantage of US air power allow the undeclared wars in Iraq or Afghanistan to be prevented, won or shut down?

Remember folks, the best beers may require the least advertising.

A man on the moon in 1969 was a proud American moment. Today, the country is starving for some sort of positive cause to get behind.

Elaborate, made for TV beer ads and a US Dept. of Defense that seems to specialize in undeclared/unwon wars will have to do.

Never Forget-

The US Armed Forces were irrelevant in defending American rights and freedoms, our physical security, & The Constitution on 911.

Ditto for all other federal agencies and departments.

A special marketing tribute to a catastrophic military failure:

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

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.

Below, are some random thoughts and questions newspeople will not ask. Our questions appear in bold type.

Was It A Fake War On Terror?


Similar DOD role on 911?
