You Can't Handle the Truth

America never was, never has been and never will be a government of the people, for the people and by the people, that is a lie, it is mere propaganda. And, if you do not believe me, simply ask non land owners who were not allowed to vote, even after the revolution. Or ask white women who until very recently were considered property and were not allowed to vote in America. Or ask a Native American, if you can find one.

FACT: In the original Constitution of the United States, it was only people who were landowners -- property owners were the ones who were allowed to vote.

FACTWomen's suffrage, or the right to vote, was established in the United States over the course of more than half a century, first in various states and localities, sometimes on a limited basis, and then nationally in 1920 with the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution.

FACTAfrican Americans were fully enfranchised in practice throughout the United States by the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

You are a pawn. You have always been a pawn and you will always be a pawn. They have turned you into a drone. You believe whatever they tell you to believe and you do as you are told. Your life is not your own, you are being controlled and you don't even know it. Instead you believe that you are free. Free to do as you please. But is that the truth? Can we really do whatever we want? Of course not. We have the freedom to get up at the crack of dawn and go to a job we hate so we can pay to live in a slum with gangs and prostitutes and rats and roaches and send our kids to inferior schools where they might get shot, get pregnant and or OD on drugs that are prevalent in all US public schools. Or we can choose to live on the streets. Those are our only two true options. One we can play by their rules and put up with living in a goddamn zoo or we can go live in the goddamn streets, that's some choices, huh? Where's the freedom? Truth be told America ranks last when it comes to being free.

FACT: The people of the United States pride themselves on being free, but they only score an 83 on the Freedom in the World Index. This is the same score as South Korea, Romania, and Panama.

The Human Freedom Index ranks countries based on the freedom of those living there. This is determined by examining a variety of factors including examining freedoms and restrictions within religion, trade, law, relationships, and several other areas. Freedom is examined over a twenty-year period, which gives a more in-depth picture of how free people are around the world.

The United States of America is ranked 17th on the Human Freedom Index, which measures various indicators, including freedom of speech, religion, movement, and the media. Also tracked is the number of press killings, political imprisonments, and women's rights violations. READ MORE: Julian Assange Gave Us Evidence the U.S. Commits War Crimes

FACT: The media was suppose to be our watchdog, but under former president Bill Clinton they were allowed to consolidate and become the governments lapdog.

Media are essential. We depend upon the news and information we get from the media. Our media system was not created by the free market. It’s the direct result of policies made by Congress and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in Washington.

The laws and regulations do not benefit the public. They only benefit big companies that can afford high-priced lobbyists. For decades, communications policies have been made behind closed doors, in the public’s name. Without our informed consent. 

Since the Telecommunications Act of 1996, the act that reduced the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations on cross ownership, 90% of U.S. media, is owned by 6 companies, Viacom, News Corporation, Comcast, CBS, Time Warner and Disney.

During the Gulf War General Electric owned NBC while being a subcontractor for the Tomahawk cruise missile and Patriot II missile, both of which were used extensively during the Persian Gulf War. General Electric also manufactures components for the B-2 stealth bomber and B-52 bomber and the E-3 AWACS aircraft which were also used extensively during the conflict. During the first Gulf War, General Electric received $2 billion in defense contracts related to weapons which would be used in Gulf War and the 2003 invasion and subsequent occupation of Iraq by Coalition Forces. As FAIR observed, "when correspondents and paid consultants on NBC television praised the performance of U.S. weapons, they were extolling equipment made by GE, the corporation that pays their salaries." Directly echoing official talking points, many media officials referred to civilian casualties as "collateral damage", and like many military officials tried to avoid talking about the existence of civilian casualties altogether.

The military–industrial–media complex is an offshoot of the military–industrial complex. Organizations like Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting have accused the military industrial media complex of using their media resources to promote militarism, which, according to Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting's hypothesis, benefits the defense resources of the company and allows for a controlled narrative of armed conflicts. In this way, media coverage can be manipulated to show increased effectiveness of weapons systems and to avoid covering civilian casualties, or reducing the emphasis on them. Examples of such coverage include that of the Persian Gulf War, NATO bombing of Yugoslavia and the Iraq War. In 2008, The New York Times found that approximately 75 military analysts – many with military industry ties – were being investigated by the Government Accountability Office and other federal organizations for taking part in a years-long campaign to influence them into becoming "surrogates" for the Bush administration's military policy in the media.

Media-Military coordination was such that media executives met in the Pentagon with military officials to decide what to cover and how.


Since no one in the mainstream media has the balls to cover this I got this information from Wikipedia: It's also available from the government: In May 2021, the President's defense budget request for fiscal year 2022 (FY2022) is $715 billion, up $10 billion, from FY2021's $705 billion. The total FY2022 defense budget request, including the Department of Energy, is $753 billion, up $12 billion from FY2021's budget request. On 22 July 2021 the Senate Armed Services Committee approved a budget $25 billion greater than the President's defense budget request for FY2022. The National Defense Authorization Act, budgeting $740 billion for defense, was signed 27 December 2021. As of 4 April 2022 the FY2023 presidential budget request of $773 billion included $177.5 billion for the Army, $194 billion for the Air Force and Space Force, and $230.8 billion for the Navy and Marine Corps (up 4.1% from FY2022 request). 

Before documenting that many trillions of dollars in U.S. Government military spending have been and are unaccounted-for, and that by far the most corrupt U.S. federal Department is the ‘Defense’ Department, it is important to document here, by means of the links that will be provided in this article, that, at least after the 9/11 event, the most respected institution in America has been and is the military, and so there exists in the United States a profoundly deceived public, which is a reflection of America’s having also a thoroughly corrupt national press or ‘news’-media, a U.S. press that is controlled by the same group of individuals who control the ‘defense’ contractors such as Lockheed Martin — the firms that derive all or almost all of their incomes from sales to the U.S. Government and to its allied governments. In other words: the U.S. is controlled by a racket.

Everybody knows that when the U.S military kills women and children at a wedding reception what happens? The military budget is increased. And when there's another school / mass shooting what happens? The police budget is increased, and they hire more police. Then it happens all over again because we're not protected and then what happens? Their budget is increased. They get more money. Blood money.

American taxpayers pay ten times more than any other nation on earth for our military and no one in America is safe. Americans must sleep with a gun under their pillow. Bars on their windows. Concealed carry permit to go outside. Car alarms, Ring security cameras, guard dogs, mace, tasers on and on. And yet there are more rapes, more murders, more crime in America than anywhere else in the world. In America one in every three women are raped.

You are naive. The US military has never protected the USA or the Constitution not once. On 9/11 the military did not even scramble one fighter jet. The military did kill four student protesters in Ohio but never protected my rights once while they were trampled on by my bosses, landlords, teachers, judges and the police. 

FACT: Republicans and Democrats have DENIED YOU a safe place to live. DENIED YOU a decent education. DENIED YOU affordable housing. Stole over $30 trillion with nothing to show for it. THEY CAN'T fix the HIGHWAYS or WIN a war. Now they WANT four more years, are you dumb enough to support this??

Voting got us into this mess. Voting sure as hell won't get us out of it. Can we please all agree that no good can ever come from voting for the lesser of two evils?

They are building a system of control, a system of oppression. A totalitarian system, the system of the Beast. 

FACT: THEY (the president/congress/senate) ARE LOOTING AMERICA and stealing our future. We’ve allowed our country to be taken from us, for the benefit of the few and the total decimation of the vast many. The most recent such IG report makes clear (on page 7 of 74) that “Army and Defense Finance and Accounting Service Indianapolis personnel did not adequately support $2.8 trillion in third quarter adjustments and $6.5 trillion in year end adjustments made to Army General Fund data during FY 2015 financial statement compilation.” These “adjustments” — a total of $9.3 trillion over the half-year period examined — had been made to prior unacceptable reports but were still failing to explain where the money had gone.

FACT: THE SUPER RICH STOLE $30 TRILLION FROM YOU and ME and have NOTHING to show for it! They can't fix the roads or win a war.

Capitalism for the poor and socialism for the wealthy. The rich get richer, and the poor get children. The U.S. oligarchs get the public investment and privatize the profits They get to write our laws, bribe officials to pass those laws, seat conservative judges to uphold those laws. Crash the economy and get the taxpayer bailout(s).

The Republicans and democrats are crooks and criminals who use the ballot box to hold onto power. America is being looted by war profiteers and promise makers.

Protesting is futile. Direct actions disrupt and cause monetary damages, but the pain is short lived, and nothing changes. Voting has led to the continuation of one corrupt party or the other. We have voted out the whole top tier of the US government and yet the thugs and criminals are still there, still in power, as brutal as ever.

'We the people' will continue to suffer until America becomes a functioning Republic with three branches of government that are beholden to 'we the people' instead of their corporate masters. How? How can 'we the people' bring about a 'government of, for and by the people'? By ending the corporate sponsorship (PACs and contributions) of our elections. Demand free (and fair) elections and term limits. Make lobbying illegal or why bother voting at all? READ MORE: October surprise (How the FBI & CIA Are Rigging Elections)

Lobbying in the US is clearly a major source of corruption. Indeed, economists who study corruption often have trouble coming up with a sound definition of “corruption” that doesn’t end up including lobbying, despite the fact that lobbying is quite legal. Bribery means giving politicians money to get them to do things for you. Lobbying means giving politicians money and asking them to do things. In the letter of the law, that makes all the difference.

If one interprets these resources not as campaign contributions but as bribes, one could argue that this is not a model of lobbying but a model of corruption.

The truth is, we have a system that thrives on corruption, and it’s getting worse all the time.

WE MUST: Eliminate campaign contributions entirely, which we could do by establishing a law that nobody can ever give money or in-kind favors to politicians ever under any circumstances.

Then all elections would have to be completely publicly financed. This is a radical solution, but it would most certainly work.

Also establish term limits for Congress, which seems pretty reasonable to me. If we’re going to have term limits for the Executive branch, why not the other branches as well? They could be longer, but if term limits are necessary at all we should use them consistently.

And, once you work for Congress, you can never work for a lobbying organization for the rest of your life, and vice versa.

It’s simple to do, and we had it before and it seemed to work.

And in 2011 and again in 2013, Christopher Rice helped to coordinate hunger strikes in protest of inhuman and degrading conditions of confinement in California's state run prison system.The hunger strikes also spurred successful litigation that would ultimately end the use of long-term solitary confinement in California.

Do yourself a favor. Think for yourself. Be your own person. Question everything. Stand for principle. Champion individual liberty and self-ownership where you can. Develop a strong moral code. Be kind to others. Do no harm, unless that harm is warranted. Pretty obvious stuff...but people who hold these things in their hearts seem to be disappearing from the earth at an accelerated rate. Stay safe, my friends. Thanks for being here.
