Quite predictable I’m afraid. Hopefully most of us are prepared. If you missed phase 1, you’re just blocking it out. I wish I could.
Interesting Information From The Last American Vagabond. These are long but the ideas can be easily conveyed by just listening while tending to other tasks. Be sure to check out videos covering the more ominous government programs going on in the background while they have most of the population distracted, which may be the whole point. It works as long as you allow it.
Also check out The Corbett Report, as mentioned in the above video, he has so many eye opening videos on this subject and many more to wake you up about our system.
As you would expect, both sites are replete with links to everything in the shows.
Once again, thanks to Chris Hedges for laying out what remains of governance in the United States.
Our system is dysfunctional at best, and hopelessly doomed at worst. If we continue to act as if our one party system, masquerading as 2, will invoke real change, we are delusional. Vote in order to give the up and coming alternatives a chance. Don’t vote for more of the same.
If you don’t have a sobering idea of our situation, I have some videos to fix that.
Don’t settle. Vote.
Time to throw off the decades of plutocratic/kleptocratic rule.
One of the many services offered by atheist and freethought organizations ( among others ) is myth-busting. 9/11 is our National myth. Myths are lies that are propagated in order to benefit a few at the cost of the many. David Ray Griffin goes into detail with this idea in his writings.
Myths usually are fairly plausible stories, but eventually they have to insert a miracle in order for them to work.
Flight 77 hit the Pentagon, but it had to level out over a distance of a quarter mile, at over 500 mph, in order to hit the building but not scrape the lawn and not damage the ground floor foundation. It had to be level with the ground and flying almost at near ground level in order to match the smoky flash in the 5 frames video. Experienced pilots say it could not have leveled out at that speed, could not have gone that speed that close to the ground, and would likely have broken apart way before it reached the building. Insert miracle.
Two aircraft hit the Twin Towers. Experienced pilots say they could not have hit that relatively small target going that speed. Plus course corrections at the last minute would have destroyed the aircraft. Insert miracle.
The 2 towers came down at near free-fall speed in the path of most resistance and still had enough power to completely pulverize most of the concrete and office contents to a micron size dust. Insert miracle.
As they fell, the towers ejected multi-ton steel beams laterally for hundreds of feet. All the while maintaining enough momentum to pulverize the lower floors. Some of that debris hit Building 7 and caused enough damage to cause the building to collapse, some floors at free-fall speed, in its own footprint, because of office fires. Later that was changed to the sliding beam theory. NIST said it made sense but declined to release the science behind that declaration. Insert miracle.
The Shanksville flight crashed in a field and was totally swallowed up by the ground, leaving no visible plane debris and no bodies. Although there was one of the engines found in a lake 8 miles away. We can conclude it was shot down. If it was shot down, chances are good it would continue to break up as it headed to the ground and debris would be everywhere. Less need for a miracle, but still.
The official story is not backed up by the evidence. In fact in some cases they don’t even try, such as the NTSB interpretation of the FDR data. But since it is our National Myth, we can’t question. If you do, you will be labeled a fool or a Conspiracy Theorist. A label made mainstream by our national security forces a half a century ago, might want to consider why that was? Have you taken a good look at the things this country has done over the last two decades? To question should be the default position.
It does make one wonder if the reason we insert a supreme being into our politics so often is to keep the idea of myth alive and well. So the notion of believing in something with no proof or even contradictory proof will be maintained as acceptable. An idea to be used as the need arises. It certainly can’t be to set any sort of an example, based on what we see in politics today.
Or is it just patriotic propaganda? Whether you put your flag at half staff or even fly the flag at all, for the 30 days you have been re-commanded to by President Trump, since it was already in effect from a proclamation originally issued by Eisenhower, depends on how you view the deeds of George H.W. Bush. You can view him as one of the important elements of the Bush crime family, a war criminal, and/or a President with good deeds under his belt. It is possible to be all three, very much the situation in this case. Although, as with most any Presidents, what is ostensibly portrayed as good, may or may not have had good intentions, or actually even happened considering we are some of the most propagandized populations in the world, and have been since the benefits of public relations were revealed after WWII, there is too much digging required to assess the actual results of an act. Perhaps the source of the sentiment “Never let a good crisis go too waste”. Let’s not forget ‘Manufactured Consent’.
If you believe that this President, just as all others in that office, cannot help but be guilty of serious crimes that do not deserve such respect, then to fly the flag at all is to admit those crimes were less than the good done. The millions that die, the Democratic nations that were overthrown, and lesser, but serious, crimes to our nation, our Democracy, and the planet. These things, we are to forget about. All normal conduct for an empire leader. Even if the President has no real control over these crimes and atrocities, he is guilty for not standing up and saying so, even if to deaf ears.
But, as we all should know by now, punishment for crimes done by the wealthy and powerful are dealt with by the oligarchy and not by the justice system all the rest of us are subject to. Really just depends on if the crime was against or for those above you or below you on the socioeconomic ladder.
