We Just Saw Something That We Will Never, Ever See Again…

In the chaotic aftermath of New England’s 13-3 win over the Rams on Sunday, Tom Brady was clearly the center of attention.  Even though he had definitely not played his best game, and even though his teammate Julian Edelman was voted MVP of the Super Bowl, it seemed like virtually everyone was striving to get to Brady in the middle of the field at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta once the game had ended.  He was greeted with hugs and kisses by his teammates, by his opponents, by Coach Belichick and even by Patriots owner Bob Kraft.  No quarterback had ever won a Super Bowl at age 41, and everyone understands that the clock is ticking on Tom Brady’s football career.  This could be Brady’s last turn on the Super Bowl stage, and the gravity of the moment seemed to weigh very heavily on the Patriots and their fans throughout the game.  If Brady lost, he would be remembered as a Hall of Fame quarterback that lost his final two Super Bowls, but if he won he would forever be remembered as the quarterback with six Super Bowl rings.

Overall, Tom Brady has reached the Super Bowl nine times as the quarterback of the Patriots.  That is a number that no quarterback will ever equal.

And the NFL is set up in such a way that it is extremely difficult for one team to stay on top.  Losing teams get higher picks in the college draft, and the salary cap ensures that all teams have roughly the same amount of money to spend on players.

In addition, winning teams always play more difficult schedules the next year, and so it is just very, very hard to maintain a high level of success for an extended period of time.

But the Patriots have found a way to do it for nearly two decades, and the two constants have been quarterback Tom Brady and coach Bill Belichick.

In reality, this Super Bowl belonged to Bill Belichick far more than it did to Tom Brady.  During the regular season the Rams were one of the highest scoring offenses in the league, but on Sunday evening they did not score a single touchdown.  The only other Super Bowl team not to score a touchdown was the 1971 Dolphins.

So the truth is that the defense was the major reason why New England won the game, but now Tom Brady has his sixth Super Bowl ring, and nobody will ever be able to take that away from him.

Yes, it was kind of a boring game, but in the end that won’t be what we remember.

What we will remember is that this was the final Super Bowl victory for the greatest quarterback of all time.

According to Elias Sports Bureau, here are some of the new records that were established on Sunday…

Most games, winning team – 6, Tom Brady

Oldest starting QB, winning team – 41, Tom Brady

Most games, winning team, head coach – 6, Bill Belichick

Oldest head coach, winning team – 66, Bill Belichick

Fewest points, game, winning team – 13, New England

Fewest touchdowns, game, both teams – 1, New England (1) vs. L.A.Rams (0)

Fewest PATs, game, both teams – 1, New England (1) vs. L.A.Rams (0)

Most consecutive drives ending with a punt, game, team – 8, L.A.Rams

The Rams played really poorly on offense on Sunday, and a big reason for that was the fact that New England had far more fans at the game than L.A. did.

During the game deciding drive in the fourth quarter, chants of “Brady, Brady, Brady” reverberated throughout Mercedes-Benz Stadium…

United chants of “Brady, Brady, Brady” showered the field from the majority of the 70,000 fans at Mercedes-Benz Stadium during the defining drive of Super Bowl LIII on Sunday in Atlanta.

And the future Hall of Famer came through once again, guiding the New England Patriots to a 13-3 win against the Los Angeles Rams and snatching his record sixth Vince Lombardi trophy.

Of course things were very different across the rest of the country.  After such an extended period of success, the Patriots have a lot of NFL fans that hate them, and this was reflected in public opinion polls that were taken before the game

A recent Scott Rasmussen poll found that 61 percent of Americans will be cheering on the Rams on Sunday. Of that number, 51 percent said they did not care about Los Angeles but were just keen to see the Patriots lose.

“In Boston, we win a lot,” Dave Maccarone, a Patriots fan who attends three or four games a season, told Reuters. “The typical New England fan is spoiled and it’s easy to hate a fan like that.”

But whether you love them or you hate them, hopefully you can respect what Tom Brady has been able to accomplish.  Going to nine Super Bowls and winning six of them is an incredible achievement, and there will never be another quarterback like him.

I have to admit that I have always liked the Rams, and I was a big fan of the “Greatest Show Of Turf” team that Tom Brady beat to win his first Super Bowl.  At the time, I thought that Brady and the Patriots were a fluke.  But this time around I was rooting for the Patriots, and I was very pleased that they won.

However, during the aftermath of the game my wife asked me why I didn’t seem happy.  After all, my team had just won the Super Bowl and Tom Brady had just secured his place in football history forever.

Was it just because the “Patriots era” is ending that I was feeling quite melancholy, or was it something deeper than that?

As I sit here, to me it feels like this is the beginning of the end for an entire era in American history.  Just like we will never see another quarterback like Tom Brady, many believe that we will never see another era of peace, prosperity and partying like the one that we have all been enjoying.

And just like the Patriots, America feels like it is on top of the world right now, but our clock is ticking too.

ISIS Has Camps On The U.S. Border, But Obama Says ‘Right-Wing Extremists’ Are The Greatest Terror Threat

Islamic State White HouseISIS camps have now been discovered directly across the U.S. border with Mexico, ISIS operatives have been captured illegally entering the United States, and ISIS is threatening to conduct a massive campaign of terror against U.S. targets, and yet Barack Obama and his underlings continue to insist that “right-wing extremists” are the greatest terror threat that this nation is facing.  One recent survey found that 84 percent of all Americans believe that ISIS is a “direct threat to the USA”, but Obama refuses to secure our borders and he is even allowing dozens of American citizens that fought for ISIS overseas to come back into this country.  What in the world is Obama thinking?  Even though ISIS has promised to drown all of us in our own blood, the Obama administration has purged virtually all references to Islam out of government terror training materials.  Meanwhile, as you will see below, Obama’s political enemies have been regularly labeled as “potential terrorists” in official government documents during the Obama era.  This includes “patriots”, “conspiracy theorists”, “evangelical Christians” and “general right-wing extremists”.

This week, we learned that it has been confirmed that ISIS cells are operating in northern Mexico just a few miles from U.S. territory.  The following is an excerpt from a bombshell report that Judicial Watch just released…

ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas, according to Judicial Watch sources that include a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector.

The exact location where the terrorist group has established its base is around eight miles from the U.S. border in an area known as “Anapra” situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Another ISIS cell to the west of Ciudad Juárez, in Puerto Palomas, targets the New Mexico towns of Columbus and Deming for easy access to the United States, the same knowledgeable sources confirm.

This comes on the heels of reports that federal authorities recently captured members of ISIS after they came across the border

The warning follows reports from Judicial Watch in recent months that Islamic terrorists have been captured in Texas after coming across the U.S. border from Mexico.

The organization said just last winter its sources within the Department of Homeland Security said several ISIS terror group members were arrested by federal authorities and the Texas Department of Public Safety in McAllen and Pharr.

Considering how porous our border security is at this point, how many more members of ISIS have been able to come across without getting caught?

And none of this should be catching anyone by surprise.  There have been warnings since the middle of last year that ISIS would be attempting to cross the southern border and attack targets inside the United States.  The following comes from a recent article by Kurt Nimmo

In 2014, Midland County, Texas Sheriff Gary Painter said ISIS would cross the border and strike the United States.

In August, a former CIA officer, Mike Baker, told the Laura Ingraham Show ISIS works with the drug cartels.

Judicial Watch said in August ISIS was using Juárez as a staging area and planned to launch a car bomb attack against Fort Bliss, a U.S. Army base about fifteen minutes from the border.

In September, Infowars reporter Joe Biggs. traveled to the area and crossed the Rio Grande dressed in an ISIS terrorist outfit. The stunt demonstrated how easy it would be for terrorists to enter the country.

But some members of ISIS don’t even have to try to come into the U.S. illegally.

If you can believe it, the Obama administration is actually welcoming back home many Americans that went overseas to fight for ISIS.  Just check out what Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson recently told 60 Minutes

It was in a televised chat with Lesley Stahl of “60 Minutes” that he admitted there may not be as much oversight of those who trained and fought with terrorists as some people would like.

Stahl asked: “As I understand it, of the 180 Americans who have gone overseas to fight in Iraq and Syria, 40 have come back. I assume you’re keeping close tabs on those 40?”

Said Johnson: “We have, in fact, kept close tabs on those who we believe have left and those who’ve come back. A number have been arrested or investigated, and we have systems in place to track these individuals.

“But you can’t know everything.”

All of this is happening despite the fact that ISIS is threatening a massive wave of terror attacks inside this country.

They even have a hashtag on Twitter for this campaign.  It is “#WeWillBurnUSAgain”, and it has already been used more than 15,000 times.

A video that was released in conjunction with this campaign sounds quite ominous

“America thinks it’s safe because of the geographical location,” its voiceover says. “Thus you see it invades Muslim lands, and thinks that the army of jihad won’t reach in their lands.

“But the dream of Americans to have safety became a mirage.”

If I was in the White House, I would be inclined to take this sort of thing quite seriously.

But instead, the Obama administration continues to be obsessed with the “threat” from “right-wing extremists”.  For example, a recent National Guard exercise featured role players that posed as “sovereign citizens” and chanted right-wing rhetoric

The exercise, which Infowars reporters were barred from attending, took place in Richmond this past weekend and involved more than 200 soldiers, airmen, local law enforcement and firefighting personnel.

Footage captured by a local shows Guard troops pushing irate citizens away with batons before one of the protest group states, “I’m a sovereign citizen, I refuse to recognize you guys, I refuse to recognize you.”

“Why in the course of a drill for a dirty bomb, would an actor claim to be a sovereign citizen?” asks Keith Johnson, who filmed the footage. “The San Francisco Bay Area is not known for it’s sovereign citizen militia population and hearing this shouted during a mock terrorist scenario was disturbing. Anybody familiar with Richmond will tell you it is not a rural ‘militia’ environment. Located in the East Bay Area near Oakland, it is a community with reduced circumstances. No one there is going to be proclaiming to be a sovereign citizen.”

And of course this is far from an isolated incident.

Since Barack Obama entered the White House, Obama’s enemies have been identified as “potential terrorists” in official government documents over and over and over.  This is something that I documented in a previous article entitled “72 Types Of Americans That Are Considered ‘Potential Terrorists’ In Official Government Documents“.  The list below is from that article.  If you would like to see the original document for each point, just click on the link.  And as you read this list over, ask yourself how many of these characteristics apply to you…
