The media is owned by a few. When independent news "gatherers" start printing real news or broadcasting real news, it's often overshadowed. Some independent radio stations have been bombed. The major news folks are into the brainwashing of America. The few own America. This is not a free country. These news sources have to lie. They have to keep America at itself and every other country. It's a "team sport". This is about enslaving the world for business. Why else would the Rothschilds be on our "Federal Reserve"?
Every child born in America has a New York stock exchange number.
The answer to your question really is - America ain't for real. American leaders are too MEAN and STUPID to comer up with any other plan but to send the best, patriotic, KIDS into a meatgrinder every 20 years and less.
The real answer is - America and the world is run by business people who need to perform some genocide occasionally for population decrease, power, resources, and to keep the public in fear.
