In Praise of Pete Carroll

911coach2Aside from Phil Jackson, Pete Carroll is my new favorite coach. He worked his way up from nothing and weighed 110 pounds when he entered high school. He had to get a doctor’s permission to even try-out for the football team because he was under the minimum weight. Everyone said he was too small and too scrawny to play football, but he became an outstanding quarterback.
Since we’re both born in 1951, and since Carroll has spent most of his life on the West Coast, it’s safe to say he was touched by the counterculture revolution, which explains why he remains a Grateful Dead fan to this day, leading to the possibility he may even be a secret stoner. I always thought Jackson allowed his players to smoke pot as long as they kept it concealed. In fact, Kareem later reportedly told someone he used cannabis to ward off migraine headaches and often took a toke before a game strictly for medicinal purposes. I know that info has never appeared in the media, but I believe it comes from a solid source.
Everyone is making a big deal about the “Stoner Bowl” because Washington and Colorado are the two legal marijuana states. But since this game is being played in New Jersey, one of the least pot-friendly places in the country, I don’t find that tag very appropriate. I could understand if the game was in a legal state, in which case I’m sure the stands would be filled with vapers, which would have been an amazing sight, although the networks will likely put the kabosh on showing that reality when it does surface in the future.
So this game really should be called “Skeptics Bowl,” or something similar. Anything but the “9/11 Truth” Bowl, since I hate that term and believe intel invented it as a means to bash the researchers. But then I also believe intel invented the term “conspiracy research” as part of a similar op because those two words are code for “nut-case” in the media.
Since Pete Carroll is one of the few people who have put their careers on the line to speak the truth, expect him to be treated very savagely in the press over the next few days for his political beliefs. But that’s just the way it goes in America. When you act like a real patriot and protect the Constitution instead of the Pentagon, the media turns against you.

The American jihad on truth

When did the “truth” has become a dirty word, confined to lunatics and idiots? And why is cyberworld filled with spooks whose primary mission seems to be to infiltrate and attack all attempts to get a new 9/11 investigation? For the penetration ops, the key is obvious: seed a piece of disinfo, a straw man detail that can later be knocked down with ease. Or replace 9/11 entirely with chemtrails and other manufactured fake conspiracies. For the outsiders, the goal isĀ  to ridicule and dismiss all researchers. These spooks often have boilerplate documents to support their POV but never engage in any real discussion or debate and their every syllable drips with disdain. They love flame wars and detest sober discussion. They employ personal attacks to wear down the opposition. There really shouldn’t be any controversy over the need for a new independent 9/11 Commission simply because many of the commissioners themselves were not happy with the results the first time around and felt the Pentagon lied to them consistently. (And building Seven isn’t even mentioned?) Over one third of the country doesn’t believe the report. Since 9/11 was used as the excuse to launch two wars that have bankrupted the nation, it’s essential for the national health to have a fully independent investigation as soon as possible, and whether you believe Dick Cheney’s version of events, or Richard Gage’s, we all should agree that this new investigation is required to clear the air.
