Turning on the television, a great play prevented a pick-six. For those who don’t watch a lot of football, Russell Wilson threw what looked like a sure touchdown for the Seattle Seahawks, but he floated the ball. A Cardinal defender intercepted the ball, from the end zone, on a dead run, which means touchdown going the other way like 95% of the time. However, Metcalf, a Seahawks receiver, saw the pick, and without even thinking about it, closed the distance from a stopped position and ran down the interceptor, closing the 15 yards separation, and tackled him on the eight yard line. Well, what looked like a touchdown going the other way ended up netting the Cardinals exactly zero points.
What Metcalf did, by running down the interceptor, was inspire his team mates, so from the eight yard line, they never allowed the Cardinals into the end zone.
And that’s the difference between winning teams and those coming close. That’s the difference between winning individuals and those who come close. That’s the difference between Super Bowl contenders and those watching the big game on television at home. Two teams may be excellent, but the difference between the winner and second place is guys like Metcalf. Just like Michael Jordan and Karl Malone in basketball. Michael wins six championships and Karl none. Both are amazing players but one wants it more. In some players, one thinks they’re amazing and should win big, the other works endlessly to win every game, seeing the big moments that make all the difference.
And we believe, this is why Belichik (He has a total 8 Super Bowl wins, two with the Giants as an assistant.) and Brady, with an amazing cast, went to nine Super Bowls, winning six, with most games (perhaps all) decided by a touchdown or less. They did everything they could to win, never believing otherwise. And we see Brady, today, with Bruce Arian, turning Tampa Bay into a post-season headed team, an amazing defense doing great things. They wanted to win, and with Tom, they see the possibilities, but continue working incredibly hard for the goal. And Tom makes others around him believe.
In New England, we see Cam Newton, a great quarterback, throwing interceptions. In a sense, Brady is football’s idea of Michael Jordan and Cam Newton is akin to Karl Malone. One does everything to win. The other can win big but doesn’t see each moment and each game. It’s the difference of careers. And Belichik understands this, but time will tell when next year, they’ll search for a new quarterback, one who has the desire to win big, doing the hard work in all the little things.
And some people love to see the Patriots, after the past two decades of winning big, of having consistent 10+ winning seasons, usually 12 or more, now having a losing season to start. Most of those people are the media of the world, the Joe Bidens of the world, the socialists of the world. They “hate” or greatly dislike the Patriots because they want it all, will do all they can to win, and never look back. But they will also see Belichik making positive changes this year, and next year, back to winning form. It’s in Belichik’s DNA.
It’s also why the media hated, or disliked the Patriots. Why? Because they believed in themselves and each other. They believed they would win, did everything to win, and didn’t care what anyone else thought. Belichik didn’t even want to talk to the media, answering as little as possible, and his players, knowing what Belichik wanted, didn’t say much to the media. The media doesn’t like individual success stories, doesn’t like the winning attitude, doesn’t like freedom of thought, doesn’t like when people don’t “cow-tow” to them, and they do everything to tear down individuality. They don’t like people that don’t “sell out”, don’t fear opinion, that just go about doing their best and winning big.
That’s also why the media hates, or dislikes, probably hates, President Donald Trump. He’s not a politician. He’s an extremely successful business man who’s always done it his way, even wrote books about the way of success, and never looked back. He’s a very successful pragmatist. Where people and the media are against him, he just goes on without looking back. As president, he saw the problems, fixed many of the problems, used common sense, then turned the economy around. He also engendered a belief in the individual, in the country, in America as the best country ever, then set about bringing the idea of success, individuality, and freedom through strength to other democracies. He’s a winner, promoting a winning attitude, to nations all around. He’s unflappable. He even seems to be getting younger. And in a sense, he’s even having an effect on undemocratic countries: for the better. What we’re seeing, with President Trump in office, is a resurgence of a winning attitude all around.
And they hate, or extremely dislike, probably hate him for this. Which means they hate those who voted for him. You and me. Why? Because they can’t control him. He’s demonstrating what all of us should appreciate: being yourself and being successful in being yourself. And the media doesn’t know what that means because most of them sell-out their individualism for a “we” attitude, which means, none of them, or almost none of them, is willing to follow the rabbit of reason and think for themselves. To them, group think, is easier. In college, they probably spoke the ways of their propagandist/ progressive professors, fitting in with their propagandist/ progressive peers. Do and report what everyone else says and does and you’ll have a career. But no one will ever remember them for anything of real significance.
And that’s Joe Biden. Even if he, somehow, were to become president someday, no one will ever remember him as one who was an individual. Notice, most people are already forgetting the previous administration. His voters like Joe because he won’t stand on principle. They want him because he sells out to special interests and they, his voters, hope to gain some scraps from the government. In other words, most of his supporters don’t believe in themselves, have stopped believing in freedom with responsibility, and are waiting around the dinner table for their ideals.
It’s also why “they” fear Justice Amy Barrett. Why? Because she can’t be controlled. She won’t sell out. She’s a success by being true to her principles. She cannot be run by any special interests. Even President Donald Trump knows Mrs. Amy Barrett won’t support him where justice is concerned. And that’s why he nominated her. He knew only a strong, hard-working, person of an impeccable nature, one who puts the U.S. Constitution and America first would be good for America.
You see, President Donald Trump and Metcalf (regarding football) have an inner constitution determined to win, and both will be amazing, one for the country, the other for his team. Both don’t wait for consensus, but to lead and create consensus. Both make the people around them better. And our president reminds us of what has been forgotten since President Ronald Reagan led the nation. And because we know he never needed the job of president, that he could have been making a ton of money in the private sector, but that he became president because he saw the incredible damage done and coming, we know we can trust him.
Joe Biden looked at government and found a way to fit in. He learned how to gain supporters by saying what he thought they wanted to hear. He learned to work within his party, say the “right” things behind closed doors, because he does not believe in himself. He does not believe in the U.S. Constitution. He does not believe in real America. He does not believe he can rise to incredible heights on his own, by his own true values (if he even has any anymore), and by his own ability to lead. In other words, he’s a leader only by being a follower first, to the puppet masters. And he does not fight/work for working America. He says one thing to one crowd, another thing to another. He goes with the political wind, but he won’t stand where he should because he owes so much to the puppet masters. So, as such, we know we can’t trust him.
