Are We Being Told The Truth?
I have heard many debates over the years about the US Government and cover ups and control over our media. With the recent events happening in Ferguson and the Micheal Brown shooting, I have been glued to the news and top stories. During this time, the US is also having conflict overseas with a group of Islamic Terrorist who seem to change their name every couple days. First they were being called ISIS then ISIL, now they have shortened it to IS meaning Islamic State.It is what it is, Except when it isn't andYour an idiot if you think I believe what did, didn't!
Before I go any further, I am going to add a little disclaimer here. I am an average American, trying to piece together all the information and news I have been fed by our media. This post is completely my opinion and interpretations of what I have heard and seen with my own eyes and ears in the media. Now with that being said, remember the title of this post is "Random Ramblings" on one little piece of the world issues.
Back to my post. Last night I got into a discussion with a friend of mine over the media and how much we as American actually know, about what is going on in the world around us. How much information are we actually being told. To me it feels overwhelming and yet inconsistent at the same time. Like there's to much information being given, while at the same time, no where near the truth.
Without going into all the details of what is happening around the world, mainly because I only believe half of what I hear and see, and partly because it's up to us as Americans to know what is going on in our country, I can't help but wonder why? Why is this information not on regular news channels and when it is, it's such a short little blurb.
I realize the US government does not want to alarm Americans for fear of a chaotic response, riots or vigilante acts due to fear of impending doom, however don't we have a right to know its there. I mean come on! I realize Obama doesn't feel ISIS, ISIL, IS or whatever they are being called today is an immediate threat to the US, but just because you feel that way doesn't make it truth or gospel. It's your opinion. An opinion, I feel is based on ego. The terrorist are on the offensive, striking at us with action and death, the US government responds with threats and surveillance. Ummm.... really... If you do this.. we'll do this.. Another threat. The terrorist act... hmm obviously not scared yet... We'll get you this time, now were not only doing all of these above, were also going to.....
WHAT Obama? What are we going to do?
Oh.. That's right
"We Don't Have A Strategy Yet"
We as Americans deserve to be told the truth. Not your opinion. If our land is being threatened, we have a right to know. Not be told its not an issue. We deserve the chance to change what may need changed, learn what needs to be learned and more importantly have the right to prepare for impending doom if that were to happen. Yet, the media and government would like us to believe these extremely experienced, well funded terrorist are not a threat to us on our land.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!
You can't even keep our borders closed from people who come here with nothing but the clothes on their backs, how in the hell do you expect anyone to believe you can stop people who are recruiting an army of men, woman and children from every country on a daily basis, have more financial funding than any terrorist group we've come across.. on a side note, just to give you an example, ISIS is worth billions of dollars, while the terrorist who were able to enter our country and cause as much devastation as they did on 9/11, did NOT EVEN have a 4th of the funding or weaponry that the Islamic State has shown they have, let alone what they claim they have. People who will look you in the eyes while they slit your throat and not even wince as your blood squirts across their face and drips down their hands.
YOUR BLOOD on THEIR HANDS!
In this video below titled "James O’Keefe as Osama Bin Laden crosses border from Mexico to US" he shows just how UNPROTECTED our borders are.
Then in this next video titled "Osama Crossing The Border' Stunt Flops" pretty much scoffing at the idea. Saying anyone could make a fake video, could have gotten permission, filmed a place that nobody as ever crossed, etc etc.
What's Your Opinion? Do You Feel Safe?
Honestly I go back and forth with my opinions and feelings on this topic on a daily sometimes hourly basis. But to answer the questions I mentioned above... No, I do not feel our borders are safe. If they did get permission, well that alone is an unsafe practice. Why would you let someone make a video of how easy it is or is not to get across the border.? Why? Second, if they did choose a spot that no other immigrant has EVER tried to cross, I say GOOD! Those would be the same area I would test too! If I was a terrorist trying to cross the border into a country where I don't want to be seen or spotted, of course I'm going to try and find a spot of least worry. Even the big news channels were making fun of this video, explaining it away. This is a serious issue, not because of immigrants trying to come to our country, but because of extremely smart, determined men full of anger and hate who want to come terrorize and take over America...
Anyways, this is just a teeny tiny segment of this situation, and it got me thinking.. What would we do? We as in my children, husband and I. Not to mention my parents, siblings, nieces and nephews. How to hell would my gram be able to protect herself if some deranged lunatics started shooting up her town and community. It's a scary thought. We have a fire emergency plan and even a plan if a robber were to show up at our home, but an army of deranged blood thirsty militants. NOTHING.
Just like Obama, we don't have a strategy
How about you? Let that sink in just for a moment. Not to mention how many different strategies you would need. Middle of the night, day time while at work or your kids are at school, middle of grocery shopping. Do you have a plan? Do your kids know where to go if something like this were to happen? What about a back up plan. Do they know who to ask for help. Do you trust the people you leave your children with to protect them when you can't? It's overwhelming. It's paranoia, It's impossible and will not happen to me, us, my family.
Thoughts of devastation and doom are to much for people to absorb. They don't have time to think about the what ifs. They have to get dinner done, drive to soccer practice, pay bills etc etc the lists are long and extensive. The ideas and thoughts of all of this is to far from reality.
But is it?
Or is that what we're being fed by mainstream media??
