San Antonio Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich took over for Duke Coach Mike Krzyzewski as the new Team USA Men’s Basketball head coach. Ironically (and unfortunately), “Pop” isn’t exactly known to be the most patriotic American in the nation.

Time after time, the guy hits President Trump. He seems to enjoy it, as do so many leftists.

On Sunday, he went after the flag a bit.

San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich criticized NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for caving to Donald Trump in the past on the issue of player protests during the national anthem.

“A smart man is running the NFL and he didn’t understand the difference between the flag and what makes the country great — all the people who fought to allow [Colin] Kaepernick to have the right to kneel for justice,” Popovich told The New York Times in a column by Maureen Dowd posted Saturday. “The flag is irrelevant. It’s just a symbol that people glom onto for political reasons …”

Dr. Fauci Refuses to Rule Out Lockdowns as Omicron Spreads

But have Americans begun to see Fauci as the “boy who cried wolf”?

Published

Just in time for the Christmas holiday, Dr. Anthony Fauci is warning that Americans should be ready, willing, and able to lock themselves down once more.

Fauci, who seems to get less popular with Americans by the week, has begun to sound the alarm after the latest “omicron” variant of COVID-19 has begun to mutate and spread out of South Africa.

From a recent appearance on ABC:

Anchor George Stephanopoulos asked, “Should we expect to be seeing more lockdowns again, new lockdowns, more mandates?”

Fauci said, “I don’t know, George, it’s really too early to say. We just really need to, as I said so often, prepare for the worst. It may not be we’ll have to go the route people are saying. We don’t know a lot about this virus. So we want to prepare as best we can, but it may turn out this preparation, although important, may not necessarily push us to the next level.”

And then…

He continued, “People talking about lockdowns, people talking about that, let’s see what the information we’re getting in real time tells us. We’ll make decisions based on the science and the evidence the way we always do. But you want to be prepared to do anything and everything. That’s the reason why we’re paying such close attention to this and why we’re all over it.”

Fauci has earned himself the nickname “Dr. Doom” over the course of the least several years, as his predictions for the pandemic continue to err on the side of abject horror and viral catastrophe.

This latest prediction certainly falls into this category, but many Americans have begun to write Fauci off, citing the “boy who cried wolf” principle.

Vladimir Putin Begins Mass Production of Unstoppable Nuclear Rockets

These missiles are little more than overcompensation, similar to when men with little confidence by a sports car to show off.

Published

In a move that reeks of overcompensation in the same way that a loud exhaust on a 4-cylinder car does, Russian President Dictator Vladimir Putin is now ramping up production on a bit of nuclear overkill meant to have the rest of the world shaking in their boots.

Putin, after being caught red-handed attempting, (and failing), to influence American politics via some sort of army of cyber-trolls, is now pouring Russian resources into amassing a cadre of “unstoppable” hypersonic missiles.

MASS production of Russia’s terrifying Zircon hypersonic missile has begun, as tensions with the West mount.

The Kremlin boasts that the 6670mph weapon – which carries a conventional or nuclear warhead – is “unstoppable”.

The go-ahead for full-scale production of Zircon at a top-secret plant near Moscow follows recent successful tests of the missile.

Most recently, there was a successful test of the hypersonic missile from a frigate in the White Sea on 18 November.

Most recently, there was a successful test of the hypersonic missile from a frigate in the White Sea on 18 November. A month earlier the Zircon was fired from a submarine for the first time. Vladimir Putin has ordered the Zircon missile to be deployed next year by the Russian Navy boasting that it is “truly unparalleled … in the world”. And while this all may sound very frightening, the move is likely just another bit of puffery from Putin. The US and Russia have long had a policy of “mutually assured destruction”, in which the two nations would reciprocate any nuclear strike against them with a full emptying of their entire nuclear arsenal.  Even if Putin managed to get one of these “unstoppable” devices airborne in the direction of the United States, it would be a death sentence for everyone from Moscow to Mongolia.
