Hello SUFA! I have found it hard to write articles here that we haven’t already discussed to infinity already. Your a tough crowd to please, and even tougher to convince when it comes to the real tough issues. But that’s what I do, the tough issues. I bring out what is known, documented and factual for all to see. Whether you choose to believe is your mistake, not mine. While I’m generally a fun loving guy, I know when to be serious and hit on the realities that I see, and bring them to you the best I can. I don’t believe everything I hear or read, but I do believe in what people are saying based on the information they are given. Recently, D13 wrote a great article on the Osama bin Laden mission. I believe every word from the good Colonel, his integrity is solid gold in my book. The government, not so much. But when we look back to the past……
Government propaganda is not new to the United States. It was heavily used during WWII and not much has changed since then, or has it? One of the worst mistakes a government can make is to use propaganda to fool it’s own citizens. They will always get caught in this day of information technology. We the people are no longer blind and deaf. The days of three TV channels are long gone, with that, it effectively ended the use of propaganda by our government AGAINST the citizens. They just haven’t figured that out yet!. They have, in fact, tried on numerous occasions, to fool the public into believing false stories of attacks, heroics and rescues that never emulated what the truth really was.
Let me start with the story of Jessica Lynch, a private in the Army, captured by the Iraqies in the first Gulf War. Remember her? The perfect person for government propaganda, attractive, young white female, brutely beaten by the enemy. The first stories that came out made her look like a Rambo figure, standing tall against the enemy, fighting with all she had, only to be overtaken by sheer numbers. For a very long time, the government and the media played this silly game, to provide support for the war at hand. It was all proven to be a huge hoax on the American people. As the truth came out over time, and to the credit of Ms. Lynch, it was all a big hollywood staged propaganda Psy-op aimed at the American people.
Private Lynch, in her own way, told the truth. She is a hero, not because of her actions on the battlefield, but because she told the truth. It was far different from what the government and media told, all to promote war, not to promote individual action. Jessica Lynch went through a period of physical and mental hell, and our government, knowing the truth, lied to the American people. The whole rescue was a preplanned, taped event, done with the help of the producer of “BlackhawkDown”. Yep, you heard correct! When the military got word of her condition and status, they contacted Hollywood! It went over well, knocking down doors that didn’t need knocked down and rescuing the damsel in distress, Hollywood style, for the waiting eyes of the American citizens, eager for good news.
I wish Jessica the very best in life. I hope she can be immune to the many problems that affect veterans these days since returning from the Middle East. One thing I know for sure, Jessica has my respect and admiration for telling the truth. I can’t say that for our government, which pisses me off! I have no respect for what comes out of D.C. or the MSM. Their pathetic lies to the moronic citizens who believe them is sickening, shame on the citizens who do believe them, to everyone’s detriment, as we all end up paying the price.
The next government propaganda lie stems from Afghanistan and Pat Tillman. Pat was an NFL superstar who left his lucrative life for Army duty with the Rangers and the war on terror. Pat Tillman was the perfect patriotic American and the media and government was all over it. The poster boy for the Army and the government ended in tragedy, as he was killed in combat, so the story began. As this mess unfolded, it was later determined that Tillman was killed by friendly fire, after his parents were relentless in finding out the truth. This story has many twists, the worst is what is known.
As time went on, the Tillman family was relentless in their quest for the truth. Thank God for the American family and the tenacity to never let it go until the truth is discovered. AS I have discovered, and is documented, Pat sent letters home that were less than supportive of the war. As he wrote, it was all a lie and bullshit, and had nothing to do with terrorism, but all about money from the opium market. He had little time left before he would come home, ending his enlistment, and was killed. The friendly fire story is hard to believe, with three holes in his head in a one inch area, from an M-16. He was shot at close range after being wounded, you figure it out!
All in all, you can see why I question everything the government says. They lie, constantly, for political purposes that I cannot really understand. But I do understand the truth. It will always come out, all be it far too late to make a difference. Not with me, I believe nothing said in D.C., they can’t be more uncredible, if that’s a word. We can’t fix this until we realize the words of our Founders, and it’s long overdue!
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
We can talk about the lies of Bush II, Clinton (they were priceless), Bush I and on and on. But what is the real purpose of these tall tales and are they intended for the good of the American people? That answer is obviously a big NO. Many Americans have perished because of the many lies coming from D.C.. When will the people see them for what they are and demand they leave? We have entered a time when these questions must be asked. Our government has lists, like the no fly list, the no buy list (guns) and soon the no ride list (trains). The names are put on these lists with no habeas corpus involved. Ask USWeapon how he felt when he found out he was on the no buy list!
The craziness will continue. It is not out of the realm of thinking to believe we will have another 9-11 event in the future. It will be blamed on some boogieman with a towel on his head, people will die, more military action will ensue. After all, Obama needs a good crisis to get four more years in office, and he wouldn’t let a good crisis go to waste, even if he caused it. The question is, where and when will it happen? Everything the D.C. mouthpieces have spewed over the last few months leads to this end. Threats of retaliation by Al Qeida (yes, the same group we’re helping in Libya), a higher threat level and a President with low ratings. The perfect storm. This will be our next reality check.
