Why do people still read and listen to the mainstream “news” media outlets, when such nudniks are really just unthinking government spokespeople, repeating word for word what government bureaucrats tell them, without question? I can’t believe that there are people who still take seriously government-propaganda outlets CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, NYSlimes, and WashPest.
The “liberal” media suppress the truth in favor of government lies, they love the CIA and hate Julian Assange, they love the FBI and hate freedom of speech. They love the State, in other words.
The “news” media promote virtue-signaling garbs and suffocation devices known as face masks that make people sick, promote experimental “vaccines” that are killing and injuring tens of thousands of people, and media actively aid and abet bureaucrats in Covid lies. Truth is no longer on the mainstream “news” media agenda.
Anyway, now that I’m finished with my rant, here are some more truth and fact-based articles that you won’t get from your typical media outlets.
In 2013 I asked if America is going to hell in a handbasket. Well, as I noted in that article I believe we have reached that “hell in a handbasket” status. In fact, besides having gone to hell in a handbasket, we are in the Twilight Zone. But I don’t think even Rod Serling could have come up with the crap we have in our society now.
First, the economic struggles, going from the Trump era economic boom to the Biden era collapse.
People are predicting that we will be having more shortages of goods, and empty store shelves. But not because of people hoarding, although that might happen because people are afraid of future shortages and empty store shelves, so based on that fear they might start stocking up again.
There are many cargo ships being held at sea because ports are backed up. Staff shortages, stupid social distancing and quarantining rules are big contributors. Ships are out at sea waiting to unload many consumer goods that are needed to fill store shelves, and capital goods like steal and aluminum for manufacturers to produce their products.
And many airlines workers are having a “sick-out” because of “vaccine” mandates, and thus further slowing down travel and economic activity. And trucking problems, shortages of truckers to deliver the goods. And on and on.
Keynesian economic policies of increasing the national debt, deficit spending and Fed money printing are also major contributors to the lack of jobs growth we are hearing about this week. And this Mises Institute article says that it isn’t shortages causing inflation but Fed money printing. Inflation is another concern.
You see what government interventionism gets us? Whether it’s foreign interventionism or other central planning adventures at our expense, like the aforementioned economic central planning, government actions cause misery, and depression.
But some people on the radio have been suggesting that Democrats in charge are intentionally trying to sink the economy, which they know they will do with the multi-trillion-dollar spending bills, with much higher tax-thefts, and outlawing fossil fuels that will cause economic activity to come to a halt, and thus, our society.
Now, if Biden and his cohorts are doing this intentionally, then what they are doing is a form of imposing economic sanctions on the American people. As Ron Paul and others have said, sanctions are an act of war. Like the recent sanctions against Iran, and during the 1990s the Bush Sr.-Clinton sanctions against Iraq.
There was also the oil embargo that FDR imposed on Japan during the 1930s, that caused mass starvation in Japan. I think that, especially if there are to be food shortages and mass starvation in Amerika, what the Democrats are now doing to the American people with their economic interventions and sanctions are an act of war against their own people, and thus Treason, as the Constitution points out. They aren’t using guns against us (yet), but other weapons. Legal and economic weapons.
But because of how brainwashed millions of people are now in Amerika, I am not hopeful for a more free and prosperous future. While I disagreed with Donald Trump on many issues and policies, the tax cuts he signed into law and his deregulation helped to really spur a huge economic boom. Many businesses raised their employee’s minimum wages and gave out bonuses, the unemployment rate went way down, and employment for especially minorities and women went way up, etc. And then…
And then the Democrats and social activists had to take all that away, out of their petty hatred for the one who said, “Drain the Swamp,” the one who said nasty things about those in power. Oooh, we can’t say bad things about the Swamp, let alone draining it.
But the brainwashed fanatics felt it important to grasp that political power in any way they could, to implement their fanatical “climate” agenda that will result in destroying the whole society as they bring it back down not just to Great Depression impoverishment but a third world sh*thole.
Besides the economic impoverishment the crazed wackjobs want to bring us down to, there are other aspects of decline in society. One is the police state.
The entire judicial apparatus now refuses to prosecute rioters who burn down entire businesses and destroy whole cities, but is going after those who exercise their constitutional rights to challenge elections, and who protest harmful government policies.
The FBI instigates riots at the Capitol and they call that an “insurrection” that was no such thing, and the retarded “news” media morons just repeat everything bureaucrats say.
And now J. Edgar Garland is going after parents who attend and speak up at school committee meetings, calling the parents “domestic terrorists” (but not the antifa/BLM who terrorize whole cities and burn down buildings).
Back to the economic problems that are related to those issues, DAs and prosecutors in some cities are now refusing to arrest or prosecute thieves, shoplifters, burglars who were breaking and entering homes and offices, even thugs who assault others, in the name of “social justice” because these elected judicial bureaucrats are very dumb now and don’t seem to understand the concept of actual JUSTICE. Walgreens in San Francisco and other businesses have had to close down many stores now because of the shoplifting problem, reducing choices for consumers in those districts. What kind of society allows this? A Crapola Society, that’s for sure.
The Alzheimer’s patient in the White House nominated Boston Suffolk County DA Rachael Rollins for U.S. attorney for Maskachusetts. As I wrote back in 2019, Rollins dropped many cases or reduced charges to prevent prison time of supposedly non-violent crimes such as shoplifting, but also, according to the Boston Globe, 11 assault or assault and battery charges, taking into consideration the accused’s socio-economic background and race, of course.
Those dropped or reduced charges included a guy accused of punching his wife in the face, and another guy assaulting a lady jogger and causing her “traumatic brain injury, speech and vision impairments, permanent hearing loss in one ear, vertigo, and other serious medical issues.” They gave him a “two-year suspended sentence with three years probation, and (he) was ordered to stay away from the victim...” Well jeepers, Rachael, I guess as U.S. attorney you will probably go after those aforementioned parents speaking up at school committee meetings rather than violent thugs.
So, like the Democrat-controlled judicial system and the FBI, what matters are someone’s ideological views, someone’s race and economic background, and other areas to reinforce that “justice” is no longer “blind” (if it ever was).
And then we have crazed nutcase thugs following a female U.S. senator into the ladies room and filming the encounter. Why hasn’t the senator had them charged with harassment, stalking or invasion of privacy? Who would DO those things? Who would follow someone into the ladies room and harass and intimidate her? These people are such crazed fanatics now and such narcissists they are totally clueless as far as having a SENSE OF DECENCY, for crying out loud!
And then there is this ongoing Covid crap. I’ve written quite a bit about that lately, so I don’t want to get into that now. But besides the aforementioned crazed nutjobs, now we have a Covid Cult, and a Covid Vaccine Cult.
People view Vaccines as the great healing agent, the Great Cure for all that is bad. Many of them are superstitious about it, in their blindly faithful belief in these snake oil potions, in a religious way. Never mind the actual truth about the Pfizer/Moderna mRNA “vaccine” that’s not a vaccine and that really is just another pharmaceutical drug that doesn’t prevent infections or spreading of Covid but is causing a lot of people a lot of damage, damage to their hearts, arteries, other organs, and killing thousands and thousands of people.
The loony-tunes governor of New York Kathy Hochul is a very good example of the religious nature of this Covid Vaccine Cult, in which she told the people to get the experimental Covid drug injection. She said, “I need you to be my apostles,” like she’s the Covid Jesus. I think it’s inherent in the nature of most politicians to have that “God Complex.” (But now it’s mostly Democrats and leftists.)
If someone told me 20 years ago that our society would be like this now, I wouldn’t have believed it.
I wrote this post 2 years ago on the 18th anniversary of the September 11th attacks in 2001. So, Saturday is the 20th anniversary and I am reposting this. It gives information that, if you are still very young, your parents and teachers probably didn’t give you about 9/11. And if you are older it gives you information that the brain-dead, zombie government-stenographer mainstream “news” media also didn’t give us, and they still don’t. (I also will have a new post with commentary on this 20th anniversary shortly.)
Today is the 18th anniversary of the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks on the New York World Trade Center, the Pentacon, and in Pennsylvania. Where was I on that day? Well, I was here in this same apartment sitting at my table doing some writing and my father (now deceased) called at around 10 am saying that their trip that they were going to go on that day was canceled and he told me why. Hmm.
The government’s propaganda began immediately on that day and after. 99% of the news media were the White House press spokesmen. There was no discussion of the attackers stated motives, or the history of U.S. government and military’s invasions, bombings and occupations of the Middle East in the 10 years prior to that time. Anyone who did mention those things was labeled “Anti-America,” or “blaming America” for the attacks. Sean Hannity has been especially bad in that regard ever since that time. He is the worst of the worst as far as apparatchiks for the national security state are concerned. I just thought I’d mention that.
However, given that Hannity and all the other radio ditto-heads are accepting of the idea that actual U.S. government FBI, CIA etc. abused their powers including FISA spying in the Russiagate fiasco, maybe now some of these obedient worshipers of the national security state can at least consider the possibility that the official 9/11 narrative isn’t what the government has been telling us for 18 years. (But, I am not holding my breath.)
So, I’m sure that a lot of people reading this post will just skim it and not really take it seriously or click on any of the links for further information. This is because they are satisfied with what the government and its spokespeople of the mainstream media have been telling us since September 11, 2001. All these things they haven’t heard about must be merely whack-job “conspiracy theory” and all that. But there are still some people who are open to the truth.
In the years prior to the attacks, Congressman Ron Paul had several times warned that the U.S. government’s interventionist policies and war that it started against Iraq and elsewhere and Iraqi sanctions would cause blowback and retaliation within our shores. (And the response? Crickets.)
It’s amazing just how brainwashed so many people can be by daily propaganda, watching the TV news, listening to chickenhawk warmonger conservative talk radio, and so forth. “Al Qaeda.” “Osama bin Laden,” and “Islamic” were words that people heard over and over and over, but they rarely heard about Saudi Arabia and blowback.
I don’t know what else to write so I will post links to some new and old articles on the subject, and maybe some videos.
Over the years I have reported the findings of scientists, engineers, and architects that indicate that the official story is false.I had an open mind for two reasons.One is that having been an engineering student, I could tell the difference from a building falling down from asymmetrical structural damage and a building blowing up.The other is that having been involved in policy issues in Washington for a quarter century I knew that such a humiliating defeat suffered by the world’s only superpower at the hands of a few Muslim terrorists would have brought instant demands from the White House, Congress, and media for investigation into how every aspect of the American national security state failed simultaneously on one morning.Instead the White House resisted the 9/11 families demands for an investigation for one year and never delivered a forensic investigation.Instead, the country was given a 9/11 Commission Report that was merely the government’s official story of what happened.No heads rolled.No one was fired or even reprimanded.To hold no one accountable for such a massive failure and humiliating defeat is not a believable response if the official 9/11 story is true.
Here is an interview in which Lindauer tells about her experiences:
James Corbett with an hour-long discussion on who was really behind the 9/11 attacks:
And here is a video documentary from Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth explaining the evidence that explosions brought down the World Trade Center, and not the fire caused by planes crashing into the buildings:
I admit it. I’m a “truther.” That’s because the truth is important. And as the late Justin Raimondo wrote, the opposite of a “truther” is a “liar.”
Don’t blame Joe Biden for the problems in Afghanistan as U.S. troops are withdrawn and the Taliban takes over the war-torn “graveyard of empires.” Blame George W. Bush. He started the war, based on lies.
Bush started this war of aggression against Afghanistan and authorized the U.S. military to invade a country that had nothing to do with 9/11.
Why did Bush order the invasion, bombing and occupation of Afghanistan in the first place?
After 9/11 the Taliban were harboring al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, and Bush demanded that the Taliban release bin Laden to the U.S. government. The Taliban required Bush to provide evidence of bin Laden’s role in the September 11th attacks, and Bush said, “There’s no need to discuss innocence or guilt. We know he’s guilty.”
Who needs evidence with these things? Certainly not the President of our great USSA, that’s for sure.
The truth is, there was never actual evidence tying Osama bin Laden to the 9/11 attacks, believe it or not. (Although there was a link between bin Laden and the CIA!) Ed Haas at “The Muckraker Report” during the 2000s contacted the FBI regarding why its Most Wanted poster for Osama a.k.a. Usama bin Laden did not mention the 9/11/2001 terrorist attacks, only the 1998 African embassy bombings. Haas wrote:
The Muckraker Report spoke with Rex Tomb, Chief of Investigative Publicity for the FBI. When asked why there is no mention of 9/11 on Bin Laden’s Most Wanted web page, Tomb said, “The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Usama Bin Laden’s Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11.”
Surprised by the ease in which this FBI spokesman made such an astonishing statement, I asked, “How this was possible?” Tomb continued, “Bin Laden has not been formally charged in connection to 9/11.” I asked, “How does that work?” Tomb continued, “The FBI gathers evidence. Once evidence is gathered, it is turned over to the Department of Justice. The Department of Justice than decides whether it has enough evidence to present to a federal grand jury. In the case of the 1998 United States Embassies being bombed, Bin Laden has been formally indicted and charged by a grand jury. He has not been formally indicted and charged in connection with 9/11 because the FBI has no hard evidence connected Bin Laden to 9/11.”
Who knows why just days after the 9/11 attacks, “a special charter flight…whisked 11 members of Osama Bin Laden’s family off to Saudi Arabia” from Boston, according to investigative reporter Greg Palast.
But George W. Bush and Dick Cheney were obsessed with invading Afghanistan and Iraq from the get-go. According to MSNBC and the BBC, and the Washington Post, Bush was planning to start a war against al-Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan, and a war against Iraq, well before 9/11/2001. (Those Internet links are thanks to Washington’s Blog, which sadly is no longer around.)
Bush started the war in Afghanistan, and did the same against Iraq, also a country that had nothing to do with 9/11. Bush’s father George H.W. Bush started the first war in Iraq, for no good reason, in 1991. That war, the bombings, sanctions and no-fly zones were continued by Bill Clinton, causing the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians throughout the 1990s, leading up to 9/11/2001.
So not only is the Afghanistan failure George W. Bush’s (and Dick Cheney’s) fault, but I am hearing especially conservatives on the radio complaining about now Afghanistan is now going to be an authoritarian, theocratic Sharia Law society, “thanks to Joe Biden.”
But guess what? Thanks to Bush and Cheney, Afghanistan already has been a Sharia Law society since the Bush administration agreed to the new Afghan Constitution in 2004-2005, which makes Islamic Sharia Law as the law of the land there. (Didn’t you know that?)
Afghanistan shall be an Islamic Republic, independent, unitary and indivisible state.
The sacred religion of Islam is the religion of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan. Followers of other faiths shall be free within the bounds of law in the exercise and performance of their religious rituals.
No law shall contravene the tenets and provisions of the holy religion of Islam in Afghanistan.
And it’s the same in Iraq in its constitution also from the mid-2000s, thanks to George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.
The ones to blame for the terrible situation in Afghanistan right now are George W. Bush and Dick Cheney (and all their neocon interventionist cohorts), because foreign interventionism and especially starting wars of aggression against other countries, besides being immoral and criminal, have long-term consequences.
Glenn Greenwald details the FBI’s dominant role in the plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Wretchen Witless, the FBI’s long history in concocting “terrorist plots” to entrap its hapless patsies, and why it’s only logical to conclude the FBI played a major role in the January 6th trespass and riot erroneously referred to as an “insurrection” that wasn’t. Even the moonbats on the left worship the national security state just as much as the conservatives and neocons. Those people on the left can’t imagine that the FBI could possibly be involved in the fake “insurrection” on January 6th.
Ron Paul and Daniel McAdams discuss the government’s persecution of a guy who dared to walk around the Capitol.
January 6 protester Paul Hodgkins committed no acts of violence, nor did he damage or destroy any property when he entered the US Capitol Building on Jan 6th. He walked into the Senate Chamber and took a selfie. He walked out after 11 minutes. He now faces eight months in prison and a lifetime as a convicted felon. Meanwhile, violent protesters from last summer’s BLM and Antifa riots were not even charged with crimes. That is called political justice and it has no place in a free society.
