Opinions are like………well…….you know. And everybody has them.
What if they’re ALL wrong!? Not just the ones you disagree with, I mean ALL of them!? Even (GASP!) yours? I have linked a video of Judge Andrew Napolitano in a previous post, in which he talked along this very subject line. What IF……..as in, “what IF everything you believed, (in this case, about America), was wrong”? Now you can claim the Judge was as wacked out as you claim I am, and he having been fired from the much respected, much maligned Foxnews, you think you’d have a case there. But you’d be wrong about that too. I believe he was fired, because he was one of the very few people who GOT it right, or correct, as the case may be. Can’t have revolutionary nonsense like that on something so mainstream a (yankee doodle dandy Veteran-supporting-pro-apple pie-and-drone-attack-backers that they are) network like Foxnews, now can we???
I’m going to dumb down his version of my thoughts, or verse-vice-a.
What IF, America wasn’t all you believed it was? What IF, WE weren’t the “good” guys in the world? What IF, voting was as useless an endeavor as placing a smoke alarm on top of the pile of rubble at ground zero on 9-12???
I read some opinions in the newspaper today, regarding the current elections to be held in Pa. The writers stated how their guy, was just what was needed, to FINALLY get Washington D.C. “back on track”, or to make lollypops grow on trees or to make Unicorns out of groundhogs, or some such ridiculous fantasy. I can’t believe that people STILL believe that “if we just elect the right guy or gal, THEN we will set this country “back on track”. I know, I know, all politics are local, and all perception is even more local, or anecdotal, as the case may be. What is one man’s American Rockwell Utopia, is another (African-American’s) “can’t drink out of their water fountain or ride on their bus”, hell on earth. Same exact time period, same exact country, but two very different opinions. Both right, both wrong. Just depends on which one you ask for the definition.
People thought JFK was THE guy to get this country back on track. Back on the track that his predecessor, Dwight David Eisenhower, warned quite alarmingly, that we have swerved completely off the rails. (read Eisenhower’s farewell speech to America. It’ll open your eyes) Well, it seems that someone disagreed with the notion of JFK being the end all be all for this nations re-allignment programs, as it were. Oh I KNOW, more conspiracy nonsense from a conspiracy nut. Well here’s what I DO know, and not just suspect. There was a CIA plan called Operation Northwoods, where American military troops and CIA operatives, were to be used to attack specific neighborhoods in the Miami, Fla area, while masquerading as Cuban military force members. This was to be done, according to official CIA documents, to stir up support for an invasion of Cuba, and a coup of the Castro regime there. Well, JFK said Ixnay to the CIA’s plan, and not only that, but he said double Ixnay to sending troops into Vietnam, because he felt it wasn’t a war or conflict that the united states of America had any business being involved with. The military industrial complex, which by the by Eisenhower mentioned specifically as THE greatest threat this nation faced, had a completely different opinion regarding Vietnam, and soon after JFK was killed by one crazed lone gunman for crazy reasons we will never know, Kennedy’s successor LBJ said “sure, why NOT?” to sending advisors, arms, equipment and eventually, 56,000 americans to their graves there. But the economy sure perked up with all war stuff that needed making, didn’t it? Now only a crazy conspiracy theorist would EVER connect dots between a sitting president disagreeing to the tune of BILLIONS of dollars, with what the immediately previous sitting president called “the greatest threat this nation faces”, and said sitting president getting assassinated, but hey, that’s just the way I think. SMART people think it was one lone wack-job for wacky reasons shooting said president……….
Back to the future, and the current senate races in Pa. So we STILL have people who believe “if ONLY we could get the right guy in office…….” And they believe it with all their heart, soul, and minds. Are they wrong, or just misguided?
Here’s what they’re wrong about. America. Voting. Believing that they have a choice, or that supposed choice makes ANY difference at all. Young voters in particular believe they have a choice. They are all kinds of supportive for Ron Paul in the presidential race, but like I told every Ron Paul supporter I’ve talked to in the past year or two, your choice and enthusiasm won’t amount to anything at all. Ron Paul isn’t going to win the nomination, because as Lindsay Williams stated 18 months ago, before all the hyped up pseudo drama of the republican primary race, “Mitt Romney is the chosen republican nominee”. 18 months ago. Having read heard and understood that fact 18 months ago, it made the idiocy of the political pundits who hand wrung every possible bit of false drama they could out of the so called primary so called elections, crystal stinking clear. It was laughable to the point of being heartbreaking. While watching the "race" unfold, the obviousness of the grand illusion and everything that went with it, was crystal-obvious-clear . Everything I had believed in and held dear, was shown to me to be a disgusting murderous lie.
The Gulf of Tonkin.
Ever heard of that? It was a false flag operation, like operation northwoods, except it was “allowed” (that means unlike JFK, LBJ gave it his stamp of presidential approval) to be a successful operation. It was executed with perfection to the point that it was THE event that got congress at least, behind the effort that was necessary to defeat those damn commies in the region there. False flags are historically designed to muster up patriotism and vengeance of the people of a nation against a supposed perpetrating nation. The Gulf of Tonkin incident hardly drummed up the masses here in America, but it was sufficient to get congress and a seemingly skeptical media enough in line to move forward with the militarization of VietNam. For those of you who haven’t googled it yet, the gulf Of Tonkin incident was where U.S. Naval ships supposedly were (without provocation or cause), attacked by forces from the peoples republic of North Vietnam. Except that in 2004, while speaking at Harvard University, Robert McNamara (then U.S. sec. of defense) admitted publicly that it was in fact a false flag event. In other words, a lie, by the military industrial complex, and it was THE reason we had to get involved in Vietnam, militarily. Do you SEE how easy it is to be a “conspiracy theorist”? Almost as easy as believing your political party is the good one. The one with america’s best interests at heart. It takes more effort to NOT come to these conclusions. And we all know Americans are about nothing if not minimal effort.
So what does this mean? So what, incidents from half a generation ago. So what? Well, unless Dwight David Eisenhower’s warning came with the caveat “oh, and you don’t have to worry beyond the year 1999, because by then the military industrial complex will go away by design…….” You HAVE to assume, conspiracy theorist or not, that the same people/ powers that be, will not stop doing what they have been caught doing, even WITH some silly congressional proclamation demanding as much. Unless you’re a trusting political party member Farmville mafiawars zombie apocalypse hero goofball, it means you HAVE to think about it. Or not. I understand what it means to be trusting. Unless and until it is a story on Nightline or GMA or NBC nightly news, its not REAL. Because we trust. We believe.
Falsely. Fatally, falsely, and in perpetuity.
So how far down the rabbit hole does this story go? Well for most, the story ends at the rim of the hole, and they stand above scoffing and ridiculing anything contained therein. That’s the easy, reasonable way to deal with troubling information.
I saw an interview by foxnews of a navy seal sniper. Not just any sniper, but the sniper with more recorded documented verified kills than any other American sniper. He was asked why, in his book, did he call the people he was about to or did kill, “savages”. His reply was, “because they were. Because of their actions". I understand that its easier to pull the trigger on a human being if you believe hes not a human being, but merely some lesser, say 2/3rds of a human, humanoid. But this much I do know. It is and was a war that once again, we had no right to be involved with, and the people we killed wholesale, had their country invaded and occupied unjustly (if there is such a thing as a just war), and by God if some other nation invaded and set up camp in MY nation, I’d surely be cataloged by them, as a “savage”. But hey, WE’RE the good guys. We’re the American military! We don’t kill innocents…….um, well sometimes, but if that dammed traitor Julian Assange hadn’t leaked the video from that traitor American corporal, the guilty parties would STILL be free…………um….well….the guilty helicopter pilots who killed civilians like bugs or aliens on a computer game, ARE free and uncharged, while the eeeeeeeevil peon of an army cpl, is locked up and forever disgraced, with the help even of the American media. Yeah, and we’re the good guys. The whole war in Iraq was supposedly because saddam Hussein was involved with 9-11. SOME say 9-11 was the false flags of false flag events. I say it wasn’t. THAT one, is coming up, soon. There are some estimates that place the number of Iraqi citizens killed by American soldiers, to be at least, a million. For a war that we never should have started in the first place. In a place we never should have been in.
Even the republican conservative Floyd R. Turbos are beginning to question what the heck we’re doing in Afghanistan. We need a REAL war, with the support of the American people behind it!!!!! No more fence sittin next time, we need solidarity!!! (look out Iran, the military industrial complex has you squarely in its sights, and they ain’t kidding around this time. ) The Chinese Lithium miners in Afghanistan are pretty safe, for the most part. The grumblings of the American taxpayers are getting louder and louder, and at some point, the American military escort for Chinese miners, is going to come to an end.
Today, I was listening to Dr. Tony Evans on the radio, and he was talking about “being a good Godly voter in the upcoming elections”. Again, another perfect example of everyone getting it wrong. A Godly voter??? Really? What exactly does a godly voter, vote for? A Godly candidate? You mean Like George W Bush!? The conservative evangelical right was all behind Bush in the last election he was in, and they stood holding their noses behind McCain in the election after that. Because Bush had the title of “saved”, a TRUE believer in Jesus, the voting right stood lockstep behind him. And, I was one of them doing so. THE issue to most evangelicals, is the abortion situation in America today. Their hope and prayer is to outlaw abortion in this country, but to believe that is going to happen, is idiocy, not just silly. This nation, the one that the evangelicals believe can be brought back to its right standing in God’s sight, is instead (in my opinion), about to be judged by the same god, for what we really are. Not for what evangelicals BELIEVE this country is, it is going to be laid waste, for what “conspiracy theorists” understand it to be. The evil it is. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t believe Mary the 2nd grade teacher or Joe the garbage truck driver is evil, but America the beautiful, is evil at its heart, its organizational core. The marys and the joes are just deceived into believing its all sunshine and lollypops and spreading democracy with drones is a good thing. And all that.
Christians, wake up. America isn’t what you believe it is. Let me ask you something. At what point in biblical history did people EVER get it “right”? Did people get it right when Noah was building his ark?? Did the king and his soldiers get it right while hiding from Goliath as he boasted and dared to challenge him? Did Pharoh get it right when Moses tried to explain it to him? Did the Jews themselves get it right when Moses tried to explain it to THEM???? Lets just let em wander around the desert for 40 MORE years and see if THAT works………… Did the apostles get it right when Jesus told them he had to be taken away and killed? Did Saul get it right when his greatest passion was to persecute and kill believers!?!?!? Pontius Pilate was one of the few who got it right. “ This man did nothing wrong, I wash my hands of the whole affair. “
The Jewish scholars, who studied the Torah like we study Dancing with the Stars nowadays, KNEW what God’s word said, yet they couldn’t be more wrong, even and especially when God was standing right in front of them.
Getting it wrong is what we do.
Conservative Christians now champion the cause of the nation of Israel, even though mocking Jesus publicly is as popular there as fighting in soccer stadiums is to the English. We have it wrong. About pretty much everything, and we don’t have a lot of time to get it straightened out. And now Americans champion America, because we believe, we KNOW, that America is GOOD.
And we have it all wrong.
We have been deceived, deliberately and magnificently. Biblical history is littered with cases of the majority of people getting it wrong, and those who point that out, usually got killed for mentioning as much.
Heres your homework assignment for the rest of your life. Go find out how many of the disciples lived to be grand old men bouncing their grandchildren on their knees while sitting on rocking chairs outside their Villas. Then go find out how many were crucified, beheaded, stoned to death (the bad kind), and burned alive, for being followers of “The Way”. What we think is good, is usually opposite what God has shown us it is, time and time again, throughout history.
This time is no exception.
