Time and time and time again, insouciant Americans allow the presstitutes to brainwash, indoctrinate, and deceive them. Afterwards they, or some of them, eventually catch on. But despite lesson learned, another precedent that erodes truth and liberty has been established. And despite lesson learned they will sit in front of their TV screens for their next brainwashing and indoctrination by the presstitutes who serve the ruling oligarchy by deceiving Americans. My voice is that of one; theirs are many.
We don’t have to go far back in time, just the adult lifetime of the current older American generation to list deception after deception.
We had the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and his brother Robert Kennedy by the CIA and its cover up by both political parties and the Warren Commission.
With JFK out of the way, we had the fake news Gulf of Tonkin incident used by the Johnson regime and the Democrats to start the Vietnam war that cost the US 50,000 American lives and our reputation. https://www.history.com/topics/vietnam-war/gulf-of-tonkin-resolution-1
After that the atrocities exploded. Not to name them all, we had the Clinton regime’s violation of the word of the US Government when, taking advantage of Russian weakness with the collapse of the Soviet Union resulting from President Gorbachev’s arrest by hardline members of the Politburo, Clinton moved NATO to Russia’s border. American patriots hailed this fatal error as “giving communism a knock-out blow.”
Then we had the inside job of 9/11 that gave the US neoconservatives their “new Pearl Harbor” to launch their wars against Middle Eastern countries that constrained Israeli expansion into Southern Lebanon and further.
Then we had the invasion of South Ossetia, a Russian protectorate, by the US equipped and trained Georgian army. Georgia, the birthplace of Joseph Stalin, before the Soviet collapse was long a province of Russia.
Then we had the orchestrated “Maidan Revolution” in Ukraine in 2014 which overthrew a government living at peace with Russia, which Ukraine had been a part for many centuries, and replaced it with a neo-Nazi government directed by Washington. This stupid and irresponsible act by the US neoconservatives has resulted in increasing gratuitous provocations of Russia that will end in nuclear war.
Then we had the orchestrated “Covid Pandemic” that used propaganda and fear to accustom Western peoples to the removal of their freedoms and Constitutional civil liberty protections in order “to be safe.” And again the insouciant Western peoples fell for it, and again diminished their liberties.
The US has lived through Russiagate, exposed by Special Counsel Durham as a baseless FBI orchestration to discredit President Donald Trump, two baseless impeachments of Trump based on nothing but ideological hatred, a fake “January 6 insurrection” orchestrated to demonize Trump and his supporters, a fake documentsgate scandal orchestrated against Trump until it was found that Biden, as VP, had in his possession far more documents of the kind being used to go after Trump. And now we have pornstargate. An aging porn star apparently saw her last chance for wealth as extortion of Trump during his presidential campaign. Trump’s attorneys advised, “pay her and get rid of what the Democrats will make the main campaign issue.” The charge by the black New York state prosecutor and black attorney general is that Trump’s lawyers misreported the payoff as a legal expense, which it was as it was advised by and handled by attorneys, when it should have been reported as a campaign expense. This is not a legitimate basis for indicting a President of the United States.
When we consider that the President of the United States can be harassed for seven years entirely on the basis of obvious false charges, how can we expect that the United States has a future? If they can do this to a President, what can they do to you and I?
Having watched the insouciant American public for a lifetime, I have been convinced by them that they are incapable of defending their liberty and incapable of recognizing the challenges to their liberty. They forever fall for the “foreign enemy” pitch of the ruling establishment.
Insouciance is inconsistent with liberty.
I believe Jean Raspail saw the end of the Western World in 1973 and described it in his novel, The Camp of the Saints. To stave off discouragement, I recite to myself the 9th century Anglo-Saxon poem, The Battle of Malvern Bridge, where the English Earl attempting to hold off the Viking raiders, tells his diminishing force: “As our numbers diminish, our will must grow stronger.”
So I fight on as our numbers diminish.
