Can We Handle the Truth?

A look at where we are.

It never ceases to amaze me how things never seem to change; they just sort of shape-shift with the current environment. What surprises me even more is how we have become so saturated with deception, lies, misrepresentations and untruths that we don't even see the truth when it's staring us in the face. Or maybe we do see it but it's so ghastly, we shut it out.

Hopefully this hub will make it so you have to take your head out of the sand. Just maybe you may start to question what information you are being fed. Instead of taking it at face value, do a little research and see who is behind that information, and why. By doing so you will learn a great deal. Stop looking at the leaders of our country through rose-colored glasses. People are capable of absolutely anything to achieve what they want-especially power and wealth.

Remember the scene in the Wizard of Oz when Dorothy and pals are in the Wizard's chamber and Toto pulls back the curtain? The Wizard shouts, "Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!" That was a very telling scene. He needed to deflect their attention away from the truth. So he made the man seem unimportant. The truth was, the man was actually the Wizard. This is what is happening now. The ones in power are telling us not to listen to or believe those that are uncovering the truth and exposing it. They are labeled nuts, kooks, crazies, and conspiracy theorists; unreliable and not to be believed. And we are so quick to buy the lie. Shame on us .

By the time you reach the end of this hub, you will have some different information to chew on and digest. My intent? To hopefully change a perspective, and show the need for the American people to take a stand and help stop this runaway train before it completely derails. The problem is, we have to first change how we think before we can effectively act, and so many have already (as they say) 'drunk the kool-aid'.

Very few good men.

The movie A Few Good Men dealt with murder, lies, and deception within our military. As you watched it, did you just eat your popcorn and think about Tom and Demi, or did you get it ? There was a definite message here. We look at our military and think everyone is noble. That is simply not true. Our military is responsible for numerous despicable acts against its own countrymen.

We were warned:

"A vital element in keeping the peace is our military establishment. Our arms must be might, ready for instant action, so that no potential aggressor may be tempted to risk his own destruction. . . . American makers of plowshares could, with time and as required, make swords as well. But now we can no longer risk emergency improvisation of national defense; we have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportions. . . . This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. . . .Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. . . . In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist." - from President Dwight D. Eisenhower's Farewell Address (1961)

These are just a few examples. Visit the website for a complete timeline.

Does our military protect us? Of course it does. But those are our young men and women who are doing the fighting and risking their lives; not the brass. They are doing what they are ordered to do. They believe that their leaders are good. They believe that the battles they are sent to fight are just. They are conditioned to believe and do whatever they are told. How much do you think the military 'tweaks' the truth or outright lies? Just think, how many of our politicians have a military background? In fact, it's pretty much a requirement.

Are they real, or are they Memorex?

There was a television show when I was growing up called To Tell the Truth . "The show features a panel of four celebrities attempting to correctly identify a described contestant who has an unusual occupation or experience. This central character is accompanied by two impostors who pretended to be the central character. The celebrity panelists question the three contestants; the impostors are allowed to lie but the central character is sworn "to tell the truth". After questioning, the panel attempts to identify which of the three challengers is telling the truth and is thus the central character." - Wikipedia

So many times the impostors won because they were so convincing.

When election time comes around, for any office but especially for the presidency, how many of us just listen to what the candidates say and read what is in the papers and magazines, then make our decision. Do you take what is said at face value, or do you find out how they actually voted on issues that are important to you. If they were governors or congressmen/women, find out what their constituents say about them. Candidates can and will say anything to get your vote. They're adept at the 'old bait and switch'. They can be oh so convincing, but are they the real deal? Rarely. Be careful who, and what, you vote for. Find out who their supporters are. Just because an organization sounds good doesn't necessarily mean it is. The name can be a front. Find out who founded it, who are its members, and who supports it financially. Then you will know its true agenda, and the candidate's.

Who is REALLY in control?

Many would answer the president, or the government. But are they? We have to take a step back and review history. I believe that you have to know history to know what is happening today, and to catch a glimpse of the future. Contrary to popular belief, our country is not governed by the people, but by big corporations and the rich and powerful men and women who run them (i.e. special interests). They're the ones that fund the campaigns to elect the person who is going to support their agendas. It has nothing to do with what's best for the people. This is why we are having such a hard time trying to help our people. Our focus is wrong and we are going after the wrong people. Time to stop attacking the puppets and go after the puppet masters. http://www.libertyforlife.com/nwo/2009Chart.pdf

Right now a huge battle rages around the Act of 1871 , and whether or not it changed our original constitution making the United States a corporation, and if it did, what difference would it make. I'm not going to debate this issue in this hub, however, I wanted you to be aware of it because corporate influence is the key. Our focus is constantly directed toward things like taxes, unemployment, gas and food prices, etc. While important, it isn't where our focus should be. Who is really manipulating everything?

Example : In 1907 there was a run on the banks. JP Morgan and his buddies saved the day and provided money to the banks who couldn't pay. There's only one problem-JP Morgan was the one who started the rumor about one of the big New York banks going under. Morgan's creation and manipulation of this event ushered in the central bank. Yet, he is lauded as one of our great financiers. Even today JP Morgan Chase continues to bilk the public as evidenced by its lawsuits.

Example : The Federal Reserve. It has nothing to do with the federal government. Having the word 'federal' in the title does not make it a government entity (e.g. Federal Express). It is a private banking institution. There are ten member banks, all owned by the Rothschilds. Other major players are the Rockefellers. JP Morgan set the stage. Oh, in case you didn't know, the I.R.S. is the collection agency for the Federal Reserve. Think about it. Who controls our interest rates? http://spktruth2power.wordpress.com/2009/04/14/a-phone-call-with-the-federal-reserve/

Example : 1862-Issuing his own fiat money to finance the Civil War, President Lincoln circumvented the New York banks who wanted to charge the government high interest rates. On April 14, 1865, President Lincoln was assassinated. President Garfield was assassinated on July 2, 1881 when he avoided the banks. After signing Executive Order 1110 on June 4, 1963, President Kennedy returned the power to the government to issue currency instead of using the Federal Reserve. The pen is mightier than the sword. Kennedy was shot in Dallas, TX five months later. Those in charge would have you shrug them off as coincidences.

The reach of these people is not just here, it is global. Do you really think we are attacking all of these countries because of human rights issues? Come on. If America doesn't care about its own citizens, what makes you think she cares about people in third world countries? But they tell us stories and we believe them. Our south was hit hard this year with natural disasters, we have thousands of homeless people, our unemployment is through the roof, yet they want to cut benefits for the elderly and disabled.

If there is so much concern for human rights, why are our big corporations outsourcing all the jobs to third world countries and exploiting the people through sweatshops. Not to mention being responsible for the lions share of unemployment here. So you must ask yourself, what is really going on? When you start connecting the dots, a whole different picture emerges.

American atrocities and conspiracies.

We, as a country, present ourselves as caring and benevolent. Better than the rest. Nothing could be further from the truth. Our government has flagrantly experimented on its unknowing citizens with little or no regard for their safety or well being.

Example : The Tuskegee Syphilis Study: The United States Public Health Service carried out this clinical study on 400 poor, African-American men with syphilis from 1932 to 1972. During the study the men were given false and sometimes dangerous treatments, and adequate treatment was intentionally withheld so the agency could learn more about the disease. While the study was initially supposed to last just six months, it continued for 40 years. Close to 200 of the men died from syphilis or related complications by the end of the study. -infowars

Example : Operation Northwoods: In the early 1960s, American military leaders drafted plans to create public support for a war against Cuba, to oust Fidel Castro from power. The plans included committing acts of terrorism in U.S. cities, killing innocent people and U.S. soldiers, blowing up a U.S. ship, assassinating Cuban émigrés, sinking boats of Cuban refugees, and hijacking planes. The plans were all approved by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, but were reportedly rejected by the civilian leadership, then kept secret for nearly 40 years. -infowars

Author James Bamford, “A Pretext For War ”, discusses the declassified “Operation Northwoods” documents revealing that in 1962 the CIA was planning to stage phony terrorist attacks on the US and blame it on Cuba to start a war.

Example : Debunking the 9/11 Myths: Special Report-Popular Mechanics examines the evidence and consults the experts to refute the most persistent conspiracy theories of September 11. PM is a popular, respectable magazine. The problem here-Popular Mechanics is owned by the Hearst Corporation. William Randolph Hearst was 'one of the boys' along with Morgan, Rothschilds, and the gang. Now why would they have to set up their own debunking articles? This is what I mean by checking to see who is behind information- or misinformation.

The list is mind-boggling. And we know we cannot depend upon nor trust the media. And it's been that way for a very long time.

Here's one terrific example. John Swinton, the former Chief of Staff for the New York Times, was one of New York's best loved newspapermen. Called by his peers "The Dean of his Profession", John was asked in 1953 to give a toast before the New York Press Club, and in so doing, made a monumentally important and revealing statement. He is quoted as follows:

"There is no such thing, at this date of the world's history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar weekly salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone. The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth; to lie outright; to pervert; to vilify; to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities, and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes." http://www.apfn.org/apfn/fed_reserve.htm

Where do we go from here?

I could write for days and not even put a dent in all the material. I can just imagine your faces as you read what I have written. Did I do it to scare you? Yes. Did I do it to disgust you and make you angry? Yes. Only when our deepest emotions are aroused will we become active.

What can we do? We can let the powers that be know that 'we are not going to go quietly into the night'. But to do this, we are going to have learn how to live with inconvenience, have less stuff, and begin to help each other. Stop patronizing corporations that outsource work to foreign countries. Stop patronizing large oil corporations. Move your money to smaller banks. If you are a business owner, remember that the free enterprise system was founded on making a 'fair' profit. Not gouging the public for everything you can get. Our own greed is killing us. Why are we paying through the nose to see movies, and sports, while the people we go to see pocket mega millions of our money and don't even know who we are-or care.

Know where to put your money. A state charted bank does not have to be a member of the Federal Reserve, whereas a federally charted bank does. We have to start investing in ourselves and others. We have to change how we think and do things. We have to stop being victimized by our own government. We have to start our own war on terrorism.

It won't be easy and it won't be quick. Expect to get ridiculed and laughed at. What you are willing to do and put up with is in direct correlation to how much you want to take back America. It really is up to us. We're the only ones that can do it.

Finally, we have to stop saying 'yes' to everything. We seem to have completely thrown out ethics from every aspect of our lives. Something may be legal-but is it ethical ? Just because we 'can ' doesn't always mean we 'should '. Are we pushing our viewpoint or rights to the point of trampling someone else's rights? What will the next generation inherit from us? We can never make things the way they were, and would we want to? But we can make them so much better than they are. If we want to.

A MUST SEE

Inside Job
Inside Job

From Academy Award®-nominated filmmaker, Charles Ferguson (NO END IN SIGHT), comes INSIDE JOB, the first film to expose the shocking truth behind the economic crisis of 2008. The global financial meltdown, at a cost of over $20 trillion, resulted in millions of people losing their homes and jobs. Through extensive research and interviews with major financial insiders, politicians and journalists, INSIDE JOB traces the rise of a rogue industry and unveils the corrosive relationships which have corrupted politics, regulation and academia.

writeronline 5 years ago

Hi Sylvia, this is great. Awesome, in fact. And Up. I love a good rant. Especially when it’s supported by such good, hard, information. I despair though, because I doubt whether too many people will take much notice of what you’re saying. Much less any action. Not because they’re intimidated, or afraid to get involved, but because so many people just don’t give a sh*t. Somebody, can’t remember who, once said that, in a democracy, we get the government we deserve. I think that’s true. And until more people start questioning what they’re told, and begin to see through the lies and deception, we have to accept that the definition of democracy today, is not ‘government of the people, by the people’; it’s ‘manipulation of the majority of people by a privileged few’. That used to be grounds for a revolution, but does anybody really care?

Gotta go, the game’s about to start. :)

Sylvia's Thoughts 5 years ago from Southern California Author

Hey writeronline! Thanks for the vote! That's the major problem, re-educating people. At some point in time we went from being a republic to a democracy. There's a huge difference.

The chief characteristic and distinguishing feature of a Democracy is: Rule by Omnipotent Majority. In a Democracy, The Individual, and any group of Individuals composing any Minority, have no protection against the unlimited power of The Majority. It is a case of Majority-over-Man.

A Republic, on the other hand, has a very different purpose and an entirely different form, or system, of government. Its purpose is to control The Majority strictly, as well as all others among the people, primarily to protect The Individual’s God-given, unalienable rights and therefore for the protection of the rights of The Minority, of all minorities, and the liberties of people in general.

So...revolution sounds good...any takers??? I'll check out your link?

I never thought I'd see the day that I would be for the "right NOT TO hear something". From the tinnitus that can drive you nuts if you don't know how to SLOW IT DOWN to the "Newspeak" we have. The television can be used to assault your consciousness when combined with microwave-based technology. You can be made to feel FALSE: fear, anger, depictions of yourself doing the last thing you'd ever do.....and even fake sadness. This is all designed to whittle away at your perception of reality and replace it with a FAKE REALITY. You can often see the blank faces and mechanical movements these people make if you are being stalked. If you aren't, it's just a matter of time before you will face this.

I've been stalked by this bunch for 9 years. I've discovered many ways around the mental obstacles which have been abnormally placed in our paths. THEY call it "cheating", I call it taking back what is rightfully ours: NORMAL REALITY. My site has material that will make you immune to this "Re-education" and allow you to think more freely. I didn't realize I was stalked until 5 years ago. You feel: stressed-out, frustrated, even at the edge of your sanity........but it just doesn't seem real until it gets REALLY INTENSE and they make an attempt to electronically brainwash you. Most people have not survived this experience. That is why the US at least has become a stage where people find Salvation or lose their "souls". It's also why everything is just plain ABNORMAL. MOST PEOPLE have been "trained" to unquestioningly obey messages from an OUTSIDE SOURCE.

This is why everything is so FAKE, BLAND or REPULSIVE. There are a great many folks living here in America with no free-will. The level of literal population-control has reached ominous proportions. This is because we are at a stage that the world cannot support the number of people living on this planet. Decisions (not by the public) were made decades ago to address this and UNFORTUNATELY the mental enslavement of the masses was their solution. They have based who survives and doesn't survive on adherence to Biblical Law. You can be electronically-assaulted for things that were considered normal human behavior even 10 years ago. Check out MOEFLATS on HubPages. Life is bearable and even sometimes pleasant for me now.

Ok Sylvia, I'll tell you why this article is nonsense. Consider this statement; "We, as a country, present ourselves as caring and benevolent. Better than the rest. Nothing could be further from the truth."

Oh really? This nation leads the world dispensing humanitarian aide the globe over in the event of natural disasters such as the devastating earthquakes in Haiti in 2010 and the list goes on and on. There are many other examples that I am to busy right now to outline for you. You simply took a few examples of undesirable policies that fit your anti-American template. You did not prove a thing. Have you ever traveled outside the US Sylvia? If you ever witnessed the atrocities committed in other lands you would not be so smug with your denunciations of America. When I'm feeling better I will write more.

Sylvia's Thoughts 5 years ago from Southern California Author

As, a matter of fact, Lockenbar, yes, I have traveled outside of the United States, and extensively within the United States. I've seen extreme poverty and hunger right here in my own country. Why is that? Since we have so much money to help other countries? However, if you were as well informed as you think you are, you would know that we have created much of what is going on in the world. Just because our government does something, doesn't mean it's out of the goodness of its heart. We always have an agenda. And, are you aware, you only mentioned that we give to other countries. Yes, I only mentioned a few examples because of time and space. To list everything America is responsible for would fill enough volumes to stock the entire Library of Congress! Finally, you mention the atrocities of other countries. We are in no position to point the finger when our own laundry is so extremely dirty. But you are entitled to your opinion. Please don't change on my account. The politicians need people like you to maintain the status quo.

The TRUTH is that we have evolved into a techno-fascist police state. There is no such thing as privacy and you can be electronically-harassed for your views. I simply want the old America back: A FREE country, not a "Kingdom of Fear" like it is right now.

People are beginning to wake up to the fact that their rights are evaporating. More people are getting fed up with the diminishing freedom going on in the name of "keeping us safe".

The focus is actually on legislating a new reality for each of us, whether we want it or not. It has been referred to as "Social Programming". You can see it in the "too-perfect-missing-something" look seen on so many faces. Gradually, our rights and the very fabric of our selves are being erased/replaced with a: generic, passionless, synthetic group-reality.

There are those of us experiencing this "re-education"/harassment who are standing up and raising their voices. It's refreshing to finally see others speak up about this. It's time that we demand that the government keeps it's hands off of our minds!

I just wrote a hub about the revolution that I believe is coming. Things are getting so bad, people will soon be forced to think about something other than 'dancing with stars'. Great hub! We need more of these articles out there. Most people don't want to think about who's pulling the strings. And who can blame them, it pretty scary. Besides they have enough on their plates. It's hard enough to just exist, let alone try to change anything. Most people feel powerless and hopeless. The time is coming when things are going to get so bad that we won't have anything to lose. That's when the shit will hit the fan.
