New England Patriots QB, Tom Brady, showed how being a true patriot happens on and off the field.
With NFL protesting during the national anthem refusing to die out, Tim Brady decided to show his fellow colleagues that not only should one stand for the anthem, but they should honor and respect the men and women fighting for them to have the privilege of playing football for a living while also making way more money than any military personnel could ever dream of receiving. In an epic show of sportsmanship and military respect, Brady and a fellow player invited and paid for the attendance of 200 navy soldiers to come and watch a pro season game from field side. He also honored them by taking the time to go and personally greet and welcome them on his behalf.
Accroding to 27sports, Brady and teammates – active Navy member Joe Cardona, Matthew Slater, and Chris Hogan invited and donated tickets for 200 military members to the big game against Atlanta last night.
Then Brady and Hogan met them on the field and gave them a proper greeting.

Meanwhile, on the opposite end of patriotism, you will find the anti American Kneelers who claim to be supporting those who feel oppressed while swearing to mean no disrespect to the military, but at the end of the day, anyone who refuses to stand during the national anthem IS behaving in a disrespectful manner whether they mean to or not.

ROTHSCHILD PUBLICATION PREDICTS SINGLE WORLD CURRENCY WILL BE PUT IN PLACE AS EARLY AS 2018; HELLO NEW WORLD ORDER
The Rothschild-controlled Economist magazine published an article 30 years ago that highlighted the proabability of a world currency by the year 2018.
Thefreethoughtproject.com reports: One must also keep in mind that the controlling interest of The Economist is held by the powerful Rothschild family, who regard themselves as the “custodians of The Economist magazine’s legacy.” In essence, the magazine operates as a quasi-propaganda arm for the Rothschild banking empire and related businesses and, is in many ways, meant to prime the pump of public opinion for the globalist agenda to be implemented.
The excerpt below appeared in the print magazine on January 9, 1988, in Vol. 306, pp 9-10.
Ready for the Phoenix
THIRTY years from now, Americans, Japanese, Europeans, and people in many other rich countries, and some relatively poor ones will probably be paying for their shopping with the same currency. Prices will be quoted not in dollars, yen or D-marks but in, let’s say, the phoenix. The phoenix will be favoured by companies and shoppers because it will be more convenient than today’s national currencies, which by then will seem a quaint cause of much disruption to economic life in the last twentieth century.
At the beginning of 1988 this appears an outlandish prediction. Proposals for eventual monetary union proliferated five and ten years ago, but they hardly envisaged the setbacks of 1987. The governments of the big economies tried to move an inch or two towards a more managed system of exchange rates – a logical preliminary, it might seem, to radical monetary reform. For lack of co-operation in their underlying economic policies they bungled it horribly, and provoked the rise in interest rates that brought on the stock market crash of October. These events have chastened exchange-rate reformers. The market crash taught them that the pretence of policy co-operation can be worse than nothing, and that until real co-operation is feasible (i.e., until governments surrender some economic sovereignty) further attempts to peg currencies will flounder.The New World Economy
The biggest change in the world economy since the early 1970’s is that flows of money have replaced trade in goods as the force that drives exchange rates. as a result of the relentless integration of the world’s financial markets, differences in national economic policies can disturb interest rates (or expectations of future interest rates) only slightly, yet still call forth huge transfers of financial assets from one country to another. These transfers swamp the flow of trade revenues in their effect on the demand and supply for different currencies, and hence in their effect on exchange rates. As telecommunications technology continues to advance, these transactions will be cheaper and faster still. With unco-ordinated economic policies, currencies can get only more volatile.
In all these ways national economic boundaries are slowly dissolving. As the trend continues, the appeal of a currency union across at least the main industrial countries will seem irresistible to everybody except foreign-exchange traders and governments. In the phoenix zone, economic adjustment to shifts in relative prices would happen smoothly and automatically, rather as it does today between different regions within large economies (a brief on pages 74-75 explains how.) The absence of all currency risk would spur trade, investment and employment.
The phoenix zone would impose tight constraints on national governments. There would be no such thing, for instance, as a national monetary policy. The world phoenix supply would be fixed by a new central bank, descended perhaps from the IMF. The world inflation rate – and hence, within narrow margins, each national inflation rate- would be in its charge. Each country could use taxes and public spending to offset temporary falls in demand, but it would have to borrow rather than print money to finance its budget deficit. With no recourse to the inflation tax, governments and their creditors would be forced to judge their borrowing and lending plans more carefully than they do today. This means a big loss of economic sovereignty, but the trends that make the phoenix so appealing are taking that sovereignty away in any case. Even in a world of more-or-less floating exchange rates, individual governments have seen their policy independence checked by an unfriendly outside world.
As the next century approaches, the natural forces that are pushing the world towards economic integration will offer governments a broad choice. They can go with the flow, or they can build barricades. Preparing the way for the phoenix will mean fewer pretended agreements on policy and more real ones. It will mean allowing and then actively promoting the private-sector use of an international money alongside existing national monies. That would let people vote with their wallets for the eventual move to full currency union. The phoenix would probably start as a cocktail of national currencies, just as the Special Drawing Right is today. In time, though, its value against national currencies would cease to matter, because people would choose it for its convenience and the stability of its purchasing power.
The alternative – to preserve policymaking autonomy- would involve a new proliferation of truly draconian controls on trade and capital flows. This course offers governments a splendid time. They could manage exchange-rate movements, deploy monetary and fiscal policy without inhibition, and tackle the resulting bursts of inflation with prices and incomes polices. It is a growth-crippling prospect. Pencil in the phoenix for around 2018, and welcome it when it comes.
Only ten years later, in 1998, The Economist was once again engaging the public in an effort to forward the globalist agenda, with an article entitled “One world, one money.”
Very much in line with the 1988 piece, the publication attempts to explain why a much more centralized and controlled system would be beneficial to the global economy, while wholly ignoring the fact that such a centralized global currency would be a massive coup for the international banking cartel, and the Rothschild banking empire’s financial bottom line.
Additionally, it must be noted that the creation of a global currency would give an inordinate amount of geopolitical capital to unelected international bankers, and subsequently take power away from the citizens of each nation and their respective governmental representatives.
Does anyone really want international bankers to have such a vast amount of political power on top of the massive financial influence and sway they already hold in the halls of power?People want more say in their own lives, not having policy dictated to them by international banksters and bureaucrats.
Control over a nation’s money supply is, for all intents and purposes, the lifeblood of a state’s sovereignty – without this independence, the state only exists in name but is subservient to supranational powers whose interests lie outside of domestic and national political/economic concerns.
“GIVE ME CONTROL OF A NATION’S MONEY SUPPLY, AND I CARE NOT WHO MAKES ITS LAWS,” said Mayer Amschel Rothschild, founder of the Rothschild banking dynasty.
Although the Rothschild family now generally keep a very low public profile, they still have significant business operations across a wide spectrum of sectors. While you may not find any one particular Rothschild on the Forbes’ most rich list, the family is estimated to control $1 trillion dollars in assets across the globe, thus having a strong voice across the geopolitical spectrum that many perceive as a hidden hand manipulating events silently from behind a veil of secrecy and silence.

If you missed it…perhaps one of the most impactful moments during CPAC last year was when Sheriff Clarke shook the audience during his statements that sanctuary cities are one of America’s most dangerous threats.
Clarke walked directly to the stage, and read from a copy of U.S. Code 1324, titled ‘Bringing in and harboring certain aliens’ arguing President Trump can use this law to bring them ALL down.
The law reads:
Any person…knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, conceals, harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place, including any building or any means of transportation.
In addition, Clarke quoted another section of the code that puts sanctuary cities on the wrong side of the law:
…encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law;
“I’m telling you right now folks,” Clarke shouted, “you charge one mayor, one governor, one council president that adopts these laws, this stuff is going to end right away.”

Elder Patriot – In his latest book, Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends, Peter Schweizer exposes the different ways that foreign governments influence American policy. It’s an unholy exchange of money for influence.
In a previous article we recapped Schweizer’s findings about Joe Biden and how the vice president folded in the face of Chinese aggression in the South China Sea when his son was handed a $1.5 Billion investment fund by the Chinese government.
Ultimately the FBI arrested senior officials in one of the companies that the younger Biden was told to put the money into. They were charged with stealing nuclear secrets.
James Comey was the Director of the F.B.I. during this time.
But, the Swamp isn’t the sole province of Democrats and corrupt prosecutors. If it were President Trump would have the help of the Republican Party in draining it.
Sadly, Republican leadership is just as susceptible to bribery and extortion as their Democrat counterparts.
According to Schweizer, Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell has his own China connection. It begins with his wife Elaine Chao.
Chao’s father founded Foremost Group, a shipping company that has done “large volumes of business”with Chinese state-owned companies. Trump has not yet publicly admitted it but he’s probably sorry that he attempted to curry favor with McConnell by appointing Elaine Chao the Secretary of Transportation.
Here’s how McConnell’s relationship with Chao starts to stink.
Chao’s family business has deep economic and financial ties to the Chinese government. McConnell’s father-in-law, James Chao, was a classmate of former Chinese president Jiang Zemin at Jiao Tong University. He still serves as Foremost’s chairman.
McConnell has two sisters-in-law that also work for Foremost – Angela and Christine are the company’s deputy chairwoman and general counsel, respectively.
Elaine Chao had worked for Foremost earlier in her career.
Foremost’s financial fortunes are closely tide to the China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) a state-owned enterprise. Schweizer picks up the story from here:
“The China State Shipbuilding Corporation is the largest defense contractor in China, and the projections are that by 2030, if current trends continue, they are going to surpass the U.S. Navy as far as naval capability. Basically, what happens is, the China State Shipbuilding Corporation says to the Chao family, ‘Look, we will build your ships. We will finance the purchase of some of your ships. We will provide crews for your ships. We will provide contracts for you to ship state-owned goods from state-owned companies around the Pacific. In other words, we are going to set you up in the shipping business,’ which is exactly what they do, and, in fact, James Chao — this would be Elaine Chao’s father, Mitch McConnell’s father-in-law — and Elaine’s sister, Angela Chao, actually joined the board, in 2007 and 2008, of something called China State Shipbuilding Corporation, CSSC Holdings, which is a subsidiary of the largest defense contractor in China. So you have this powerful American political family that is making U.S. policy related to China, related to trade, and other critical issues that is highly dependent upon the good graces of the Chinese government.”
The significance of this becomes apparent after McConnell accepted a gift of between five and twenty-five million dollars from his father-in-law. It was his wife’s inheritance after her mother passed. That gift from his father-in-law more than quadrupled his net worth overnight and made him one of the richest men in the U.S. Senate.
If that gift had been made by an unrelated party with the potential to benefit financially from the help of the Senate Majority Leader it would be considered bribery – a felony.
The gift also marks the turning point in McConnell’s positions on China policies over the past twenty years. Schweizer’s research led him to say: “Shock of all shocks, he has become increasingly soft as it relates to China.”
McConnell knows the bigger payday awaits the passing of his wife’s father. Perhaps that is why McConnell’s policy positions were more directed at rescuing China’s moribund shipbuilding sector than in protecting U.S. national security. By 2013 Chinese shipbuilding had returned to the lead of global vessel construction, in front of South Korea and Japan.
Significantly, this re-energized CSSC, the state-owned defense conglomerate at the heart of the Chinese government’s military-industrial complex.
Elaine Chao once commented, “ships crewed by Americans are ‘a vital part of our national security.’” So what changed?
The Chinese government had upped the ante in exchange for continuing to do business with the Chao’s family business, Foremost ships have been constructed by Chinese government shipyards, their construction has been financed by the Chinese government, and their crews are now largely Chinese.
When Donald Trump openly criticized all of the unfair trade advantages McConnell had rubber stamped on behalf of the Chinese, including China’s theft of intellectual property, their money manipulation, and the threat to national security that losing our manufacturing base was causing, China demanded he be stopped.
This goes a long ways towards explaining McConnell’s entrenched opposition to Donald Trump both before and since his election and that continues to this day.
But, McConnell’s opposition to President Trump doesn’t stop with China. The Senate Majority Leader has worked diligently to defeat Trump’s spending cuts and legislative initiatives including his failure to deliver Obamacare repeal that he promised to get done at the RNC:
This is all intended to neutralize Trump and create discontent among his supporters by preventing the president from getting the things he promised to.
It also goes a long way towards explaining why other members of the swamp have rolled over and allowed China to fleece America’s intellectual and business assets. And why Congress is on the verge of passing a massive omnibus that will fund every anti-Trump initiative of the Democrats and that will kick the president’s agenda down the road.
This is the Swamp that is aligned against Donald Trump.
