If something doesn’t make sense,then usually it isn’t true.
Just when one thinks that American peoples capacity for self delusion has reached its lowest point and couldn’t possible get any worse, along comes the world’s most famous terrorist caricature to prove us all wrong….again.
During the past fortnight these people have been on what can only be described as a sort of ‘death ecstasy’ over the purported killing of the alleged 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden, the Saudi Arabian born and raised fighter of Soviet forces in Afghanistan funded by the CIA who was put on the FBI’s Most Wanted List for his role in various terror attacks, but never charged with anything having to do with the 9/11 attacks on America.
Since Osama bin Laden was assassinated under orders from President Obama (Or was it his ‘purported to be dead brother’ Salem bin Laden?) the White House has been unable to give a straight narrative on the US military operation that killed him giving out at least 10 different versions, all of them contradicted by the members of his family who witnessed it and, surprisingly, all agree that this alleged terrorist ‘mastermind’ was captured unarmed and then promptly executed.
As to offering proof of their claim to have killed bin Laden/Tim Osman (his CIA code name) the Obama administration refused to release any photos opting instead to release what they say were video tapes they confiscated from his Pakistan compound, and which, as always, left more questions than answers.
The answers to these questions are, of course, unknowable, but without their being answered has left nearly
20% of the American people believing that bin Laden isn’t dead, according to the Zogby polling organization.
These 20% of Americans not believing their governments bin Laden “death story” join the 27% who don’t believe Obama was born in the US, the 84% who believe 9/11 was an ‘inside job’, the 57% who don’t believe President Kennedy was killed by a lone assassin, and the 34% who believe in UFO’s.
For the United States purporting itself to be the most free country in the world, these numbers are beyond astounding and point to what can only be described as a fundamental breakdown in the level of trust between the American people, their government, and their press establishment. Why this is so is always blamed by US government spokesman, and their mainstream press lapdogs, as the American people being “conspiracy nuts”, “birthers” (those not believing Obama is a US citizen), “truthers” (those not believing in the 9/11 fairytale), “crackpots”, you name it.
But the real truth behind the breakdown of faith between the American people, their government, and their mainstream press lapdogs, is more complicated and strikes at the very core being of whom these people really are….the world’s most addicted gamblers. Out of our planet’s entire nearly 7 billion population, the United States, with its population of nearly 300 million that’s just 4.5% of the world’s total, account for fully 36% of all the gambling taking place EVERYWHERE!
And in being the gamblers that they are, the American people, more than any people in history, take risks beyond those of any society of human beings in the world opting to depend on themselves more than anything else. Unlike the Europeans who eschew risk opting instead to be taken care of by their governments from ‘cradle to grave’, these Americans, when given the chance, choose to live life on their terms, and no one else’s.
Like the gamblers that they are these Americans, likewise, do what all good gamblers do when assessing their risks…the ask the simple question: “What Are The Odds?”
The definition of the word “odds” basically means the probability that something is so, will occur, or is more likely to occur than something else, and when it comes to these Americans being told something by their government or lapdog mainstream press they always ask themselves that question “What are the odds?” If the “odds” don’t match up with what they are being told these Americans simple discount it and then look for other explanations that make more sense. After all, if something doesn’t make sense, these Americans argue to themselves, then usually it isn’t true.
In 1963 the American people were told to believe that a man named Lee Harvey Oswald left the US Marines with a “Top Secret” security clearance, immigrated to the Soviet Union, was allowed back into the United States and then singlehandedly became the world’s best marksman in all of history and assassinated President John F. Kennedy with 3, 4 or 5 bullets fired by an antiquated bolt-action rifle from a distance of over 100 meters in a mere 2.5 seconds scoring ‘direct hits’ with all his shots.
Next they were told to believe that a former mobster linked to Al Capone named Jack Leon Rubenstein (aka Jack Ruby) who in 1947 worked for then Congressman Richard Nixon, who later became President, as a “confidential informant” killed Oswald before he could be tried. WHAT ARE THE ODDS?
In 1981 they were told to believe that the mentally ill son of Texas oil billionaire John Hinckley Sr., the power behind former CIA Director George Bush’s quest to become President, was a ‘lone gunman’ when he attempted to assassinate President Ronald Reagan. WHAT ARE THE ODDS?
In 2001 they were told to believe that a Boeing 757 aircraft flew into the Pentagon leaving only a 12.25 ft hole (before the wall collapsed) that just happened to target the US Navy’s intelligence computers controlling the air defenses over the United States after which the 9/11 attacks ended. WHAT ARE THE ODDS?
Also in 2001 they were told to believe that the 9/11 attacks were ‘masterminded’ by Saudi national Osama bin Laden whose brother Salem bin Laden founded in 1978 a Texas based oil company named Arbusto Energy with his ‘best friend’ and partner, and future US President, George W. Bush. WHAT ARE THE ODDS?
Now these are just four examples out of hundreds, if not thousands, of ‘stories’ the American people have been told to believe by their government and mainstream media lapdogs that “just didn’t add up” and begged further investigation, if not outright criminal trials. But with no other explanations or examinations being made (other than those maintaining the cover-ups) the American people did what they’ve always done, tried to figure it out for themselves.
And the track record of ordinary Americans figuring things out for themselves is nothing short of astounding, especially when viewed in the light of the odds they’ve had to go against to discover what the real truth is.
For decades many Americans have asserted that their government was working on devices that could “transmit thoughts” into human brains. In 2006 a Freedom of Information Act petition filed by an ‘ordinary’ American requesting all declassified government documents pertaining to covert attempts at microwave auditory effect, telepathy and hypnosis revealed that this was true. The ‘mainstream’ press failed to report it.
For decades many Americans have asserted that the Census is tool for government oppression. Recently released US government documents revealed this was true and that the Census has been used to round up American-Japanese and American-German citizens during World War II and to round up American-Arabs after 9/11. The ‘mainstream’ press failed to report it.
For decades many Americans have asserted that their government controls the media. Recently released US government documents revealed this was true and was part of a CIA programme “Operation Mockingbird” that by the mid-1950’s had over 400 ‘government controlled’ journalists working in the ‘mainstream’ US media. No one knows how many there are today. The ‘mainstream’ press failed to report it.
For decades many Americans have asserted that government spies are just about ‘everywhere’ in their country. Recently released government documents revealed this was true and detailed how US government agents infiltrated with the intent to destroy too many anti-war and civil rights organizations to mention. One Obama adviser even suggested infiltrating conspiracy theory message boards with secret agents who would discredit “false conspiracy theories about the government.” Because apparently, people on conspiracy theory message boards would never appreciate the irony. The ‘mainstream’ press failed to report it.
For decades many Americans have asserted that their government had poisoned them in the past and could do so again. Recently released documents revealed this was true and detailed how during prohibition US government agents put poison in alcohol sold to bootleggers and killed an estimated 10,000 Americans. The ‘mainstream’ press failed to report it.
For decades many Americans have asserted that their government has sprayed them with biological agents. Recently released documents revealed this was true and included the spraying of a the San Francisco subway system in the 1950’s with a ‘biological agent’, the spraying of the New York City subway system in 1966 with a biological agent called a ‘cousin to anthrax’ in 1966, and an “entomological warfare” where they dumped over 300,00 ‘biologically infected’ mosquitoes over the State of Georgia to, and there words not ours, “to see what would happen.” The ‘mainstream’ press failed to report it.
The ability of the American people to “gamble” on the truth and find things out for themselves has never been easy, just ask Daniel Ellsberg who in the late 1960’s risked his life and future when he released what are known as the Pentagon Papers that according to the New York Times showed “the Johnson Administration had systematically lied, not only to the public but also to Congress, about a subject of transcendent national interest and significance” regarding the Vietnam War. The release of the Pentagon Papers proved the ‘beginning of the end’ to what was then the longest war fought by the United States.
To see who much worse it has gotten for those Americans seeking the truth one can juxtapose the release of the Pentagon Papers with this past years release of the WikiLeaks Files containing tens of thousands of once secret US documents that nary one single American ‘mainstream’ news lapdog will report on and the courageous US Soldier, Bradley Manning, who is alleged to have released them, is still being held without trial and tortured under the orders of his top commander, President Obama. [Note: Since the release of the WikiLeaks Files the Arab world has united in revolution to overturn those regimes supported by US duplicity and coercion.]
Now the “common thread”, so to speak, between those Americans seeking the truth, and then their being able finding it, lies with organizations such as ours who for decades have assisted, and provided valuable information to those asking the question, “What are the odds?”
And never before in history has this effort to find the truth been more critical as our world plunges ever closer to the abyss. From unprecedented natural disasters, to global economic collapse, to violent revolutions spreading around the world, to the mass extinction of the most important species needed for our survival, to all of these and more, the truth (at least for those looking for it) is more important that ever!
But at the exact same time that truth is being sought, those seeking to prevent you from knowing it are working harder than you can imagine to keep you from it. And their main weapon in this war against those like us is constant and consistent attacks on every front you can imagine, with none being more devastating than the cyberattacks launched on an almost hourly basis against the servers of those websites considered “enemies of the state.”
