From youtube.com/watch?v=e2Fx9FVo8gw: EBOLA lies spread by the government and mass media

A number of readers have read reports that the CIA was active in West Africa just prior to the ebola outbreak, and some have read reports that the ebola strain is a weaponized version engineered to spread by air and surface contact. Some readers ask me to confirm or refute these reports, and others want to know if the One Percent or the Bilderbergers have started the process of eliminating the surplus population.

The only people who would be able to answer these questions would be the people responsible, if such a plot is actually underway. Even then, the warning would likely be ignored or discredited. A top NSA official, William Binney, told us years ago about the illegal and unconstitutional NSA spying, but nothing was done about it. Edward Snowden told us again, and the response was to label him a Russian or Chinese spy. Congress has not conducted a meaningful investigation. No heads have rolled. The presstitute media attacks Snowden, not the NSA. And so on.

Although I cannot answer the questions, I can draw important conclusions from the fact that so many are asking them. It is clear as day that the US government has lost credibility among large segments of the American population as well as abroad. Increasingly, Americans do not believe their government or the media that lies for the government. This is why the print and TV media are on the decline, making it easier for the CIA to buy the media to serve its agendas.

Where shall we begin? Clinton's lies about Serbia and Kosovo? George W. Bush's lies about Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction? Obama's lies about Gaddafi and Assad's use of chemical weapons? The lies about Iranian nukes? Obama's lies about Ukraine? The demonization of Putin?

Or shall we go back to the official lies about President John F. Kennedy's assassination? Or Martin Luther King's? Tonkin Gulf? The USS Liberty? Pearl Harbor? "Remember the Maine"?

Or the granddaddy of them all -- 9/11?

Try to come up with one important event about which the US government did not lie.

My Ph.D. dissertation chairman, Warren Nutter, who was later given the task of winding down the Vietnam war, taught his students that democracy requires trust between the government and the people. Clearly, the government does not trust the American people. Washington pursues hidden agendas that it advances by deceiving the American people.

The first observant and patriotic citizens who warned us of the deceptions practiced by our government were dismissed as "anti-American." Patriotism became defined as "belief in the government's word," as British prime minister Cameron reiterated the other day. Today skeptics who utilize free speech are defined by Homeland Security as "domestic extremists." Anyone who tells the truth in America is instantly discredited. Indeed, to speak truth in America is a high-risk activity.

As Warren Nutter taught, our democracy only works when the government's agenda is openly revealed and consistent with American principles. When the government lies in order to orchestrate wars that benefit special interests, the government breaks trust with the people and becomes arbitrary, dictatorial, and unaccountable. And when the media prefers money to truth, the government gets away with it.

The government has gotten away with so much that I cannot imagine anything that the government could not get away with.
