Patty who comments here on occasion suggests some in the mainstream media are reading my blog and stealing my ideas. I appreciate Patty’s belief in the impact of my blog but I happen to think it is not this blog that is making others more alert to the happenings which I have been discussing but the general awareness that is slowly sneaking its way into the minds of some Americans that things aren’t right.
I’m fortunate that the people who read this blog are willing to provide me with information from others who appear to be tracking along the same line as myself. What I find fascinating is that this is not a left or right issue with what is happening in America. For these events equally affect those on either end of the spectrum. My sense is that while the left and right believers are urged to battle each over issue they believe significant, the real show is going on behind their backs while they are distracted. It is in this real show that the rights of all Americans are being stolen.
Some might think that I over exaggerate the events but today’s required reading show that people in positions of much greater prominence than I back up many of my ideas. Here are some examples:
Cap off to Jeff: He calls attention to this article in the American Conservative Magazine by Ron Unz called “Our American Pravda.”
It will take you a fair amount of time to read this so grab a cup of coffee and settle in to it. Ron in a much more eloquent and detailed manner than I ever could express myself touches upon the topics we have talked about here. We have used the Whitey case to note them while he uses the national landscape.
One thing that pleased me about his article was he backs up what I have been preaching about lately namely that the Internet is the last resource that we as a people have for keeping informed about the truth. We won’t get it from the government nor will we get it from the news media. He also goes into in devastating detail how inept the FBI is when it comes to investigating matters. Along with that he talks about the American people who basically are being duped by the news media and the government yet don’t seem to care. He doesn’t quite say it but we’re on a slippery road which will lead to our eventual destruction; and, what will you do when the most powerful country in the world becomes like all the others. What kind of world would it have been if Hitler and his Third Reich won? Probably the same kind as we will see if America becomes de facto no more than a dressed up Soviet state which will happen when almost all the people check out.
A tip of the cap to Jon: He called my attention to an article in the N.Y. Times yesterday about the push by our government to shut down information.
I found the comparison between what the FBI did to William E. Binney, a guy in his sixties who worked for 30 years in the National Security Agency, and Ibragim Todashev. Binney was questioned three times by FBI agents. Todashev questioned at least that many times. Then the FBI with a dozen agents raided Binney’s house and one agent gun drawn went to where he was toweling off after a shower and pointed the gun at him. Why is a gun being pointed at a life long government public servant? How many guys pointed guns at Todashev during his “interview” which was well into its sixth or seventh hour. How often did Todashev ask them to leave and they refused? With so many agents there he was clearly under arrest yet he had no lawyer available.
The N.Y. Times article shows how the government’s actions under Obama have sent a chill through government workers who have heard how the FBI has “taken [their fellow workers] from their offices to endure uncomfortable questioning. And the government officials typically must pay for lawyers themselves. . . “ We learn, “there are hundreds of national security officials who feel under siege.” We also read: “Officials who have been questioned in the current investigations are reluctant to describe their experiences.”
Is this the type of America you like living in. How are people who are supposed to protect us from threats to do their jobs if they feel under siege? This is your FBI at work. It is not being controlled by anyone.
Finally, another tip of the cap to a person who contributes to this blog behind the scene, Theo Wiser, who called my attention to another article dealing with the FBI. This is on of all places a site called Techcrunch. The title of the article pretty much tells it all: “Is The FBI Dumb, Evil, Or Just Incompetent?”
Pour yourself another coffee and see another point of view similar to what I have concerning the Internet. As you sip away ponder this statement by the article’s author: “Is the FBI actually too stupid to realize that this is a terrible, horrible, very bad, no good idea? Or — get your tinfoil hats on — is the pretext of hunting criminals and terrorists merely a smokescreen for requiring what in effect will be a gargantuan cross-platform surveillance system that will let them spy on anyone’s conversation at any time for their own ulterior motives?”
It’s good to find I’m not alone. I just hope the others keep plugging away and if they do we may begin to take our country back.
