Mills said he got through multiple layers of security using that bogus story.

"I didn't think that I'd get that far," Mill said. "I just kept getting closer and closer. Once I got past the final gate and into the stadium, I was dumbfounded."

That he was able to successfully infiltrate what was likely the most secure site on the planet on game day is just another not that shocking example of how the entire war on terror is nothing but state bullshit, just like the NSA conducting their ongoing illegal data-mining to prevent terrorism. It is all about social control and preparation for the inevitable pushback against Leviathan when it finally goes too far. 

Leave it to Sports Illustrated to pile on the demonizing of Mills. In his popular Monday Morning Quarterback online column Peter King (not the deranged terrorist supporting bigot in Congress) took a break from his analysis of the brutal beat down of the Broncos by writing:

Weirdest moment of the night: A 9/11 "truther," Matthew Mills, 30, of Brooklyn, walked up to the side of the podium where Super Bowl MVP Malcolm Smith had just begun to live his moment in the sun. On live TV, here's how it rolled:

Smith: "I always imagined myself making great plays, but you never think about being MVP."

Mills, hustling past Miami PR czar Harvey Greene and abruptly grabbing the microphone, as Smith's beseeching eyes looked for help: "Investigate 9/11 " 9/11 was perpetrated by people within our own government."

Mills dropped the mic like a player would spike a football and exited stage left. The mic got uprighted. Smith paused, looked around and said: "All right." He looked around again. "Is everybody all right?"

Mills' stunt happened so fast it fit on a six-second Vine video, as you can see. Truthers are people who believe a massive cover-up is at play and hides what really happened in Lower Manhattan that caused nearly 3,000 people to die in the collapse of the World Trade Center.

King is an NFL shill extraordinaire and his hefty paycheck and celebrity journalist status put him into the same category as the rest of the dismal hacks in the state-corporate media. His columns are an exercise in self-worship as much as anything actually about football, often travelling into ridiculousness about matters as trivial of what he drank at the airport Starbucks. He was a prominent defender of the league during the travesty of the recent concussion settlement that screwed injured players while effectively immunizing the NFL against future litigation as well as promulgated the worship of the paramilitary response to the Boston Marathon bombing last year where a de facto state of martial law was declared in Beantown.

As far as the so-called "truthers", a pejorative term meant to demean and marginalize those who would question the official government story of what happened on that day I am an agnostic. There are serious and legitimate questions that have never been answered as to how those attacks were able to penetrate our national air defenses and bamboozle intelligence agencies that taxpayers have been fleeced for trillions of dollars to fund by a bunch of militants, most hailing from Saudi Arabia and led by a spooky man living in a cave. The attacks were certainly used as an excuse for the massive expansion of the surveillance colossus as we have learned from former government contractor turned NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. They were also used to sell the American sheeple on entering into an endless series of Middle Eastern wars against Muslim countries that have contributed to the looming final implosion of the rigged financial system as well as the disembowelment of the Constitution.  The neoconservative Project for the New American Century (PNAC) made it evident of the need for a "New Pearl Harbor" to bolster public support for the state of eternal war abroad and privation at home so it all seems to fit a certain agenda. There are a lot of whacked out theories floating around including controlled demolition of the World Trade Center (that would have been such a massive undertaking that it boggles the mind considering the need to place explosives inside at critical stress points), missiles hitting the Pentagon, death rays and a myriad of even more bizarre forms of lunacy. There is however something that the government is hiding, as to what that is would be the proverbial million dollar question and I would agree with Mr. Mills that 9/11 does need to be investigated and not by some handpicked whitewash committee this time and that is the last thing that this government or more appropriately elements within it will ever allow to happen.

There has been a serious and grave transformation of the  government into an all powerful rogue state that has declared war on both the American people as well as the Constitution but with a populace that is far too often mesmerized by the images on their television, particularly the Super Bowl you can pretty much see that we all are the true losers when it comes to the big game.
