U.S. Government: Historically a Pathological Liar

Can you believe anything that comes out of any U.S. government official? Only the gullible public could.

This article would be an op-ed if it wasn’t because there is so much proof that the United States government has lied its way into building the Empire that is now collapsing. I do not need to justify why there are so many people who do not trust anything the government says, because history is the most faithful witness that governments lie when they have to, use fear when their lies don’t work, and murder when fear is no longer effective.

Sunday, president Barack Obama interrupted regular television programming to announce the death of Osama Bin Laden, the ghost that had eluded intelligence and military assets for a decade. Obama didn’t only take credit for Bin Laden’s death, but he also arrogantly spoke as if we had to take his word for it. The announcement came at a suspiciously convenient time, exactly when Obama needed it the most.

So the question is, do we take the announcement at face value? Only the gullible public would and could. Only the minority that still believes government is good, honest and straightforward with the people have the guts to believe any official version of the facts. Only the men and women who are afraid of learning the facts about history and who rely on the main stream corporate media would.

The rest of us know better. The rest of us, the majority, know that when government controls the information that sees the light, there is zero chance to expect the truth. When the government is the judge, jury and executioner, as it happens often, there is no room for trust.

American government lies abound and have stained history for decades. From the Gulf of Tonkin to the Bay of Pigs. From the Weapons of Mass Destruction excuse, to Al-CIA-eda. From Bin Laden to the War on Terror.

A country and a government that allows its president to be murdered (John F. Kennedy) in plain daylight for the sake of empire building does not have credibility.

A government that false-flag attacks its own troops (Gulf de Tonkin) to take the country into war does not have credibility.

A government that creates boogie-men (Bin Laden) to terrorize its own people and the world does not have any credibility.

A government that murders a million people (Iraq 1991 y Iraq 2003) in one single country does not have credibility.

A government that experiments with foreign (Guatemala) and its own people (Tuskegee), does not have credibility.

A government that invades countries for humanitarian reasons while bombing its people with depleted uranium, does not have credibility.

A government that says it killed the supposed head of a terrorist organization that is of its creation while showing no proof of it, does not have credibility.

A government that invites terrorists to dine in the Pentagon while accuses them of being terrorists, does not have credibility.

A government that operates in secrecy while spying on everyone cannot be trusted.

Nothing short of seeing Osama Bin Laden’s body and conducting an independent forensic analysis would probe enough for anyone in their right mind to believe the United States announcement that it captured and killed Bin Laden. Unfortunately, the United States government conveniently disposed of his body so that no one can ever find out if it was him or not  -just as it did with the rubble of the World Trade Center Towers- but has only shown a doctored picture with Photoshop. A government that has lied throughout its whole history wants us to believe what it has to say regarding the capture and murder of the greatest boogie-man of the 21st century? I don’t think so!

“The very word secrecy is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know.”

– John F. Kennedy

  1. LOL I love how you distorted the details in every supporting point you made here to fabricate a broader conclusion. You were more deceitful in this article than the feds have been for the last 15 years combined. I’d love to have a public, formal debate online with you regarding the contents of this article. Send me an email and we’ll set it up.

    I agree with everything you said and its not hard to see why JFK was assasinated, he was also in the midst of closing down the Federal Reserve. For the past few years our leadership has been rotten to the core, impeachments and skullduggery going on at every turn. Some of the people we have elected President are so corrupt they should be in Prison, not in the whitehouse. Wars there was no need for except to make money for the higher ups, the elite. Most of our Congress and Senate are members of the council on Foreign Relations, and they seem to be the group that runs this country, George Soros is a member. The Pentahgon is loaded with them, I don’t feel secure with that.

    I have to admit I was surprised when out of the blue it was announced Usama Bin Laden was dead, I was surprised, I vaguely remember hearing on the radio that he passed away of renal failure, but then I saw a few interviews he gave in a cave so I assumed he was still alive and I heard wrong.

    What I would like to know is who is the man they call the mastermind of 9-11, they were going to try him in New York but they really protested about it and they won, I have no idea what happened to him, they have him tucked away somewhere and he will probably never go to trial anywhere, is he the master mind or is Bin Laden, I’m confused? His picture was all over the front page with his wild hair , they shaved off his beard and it looks as though they pushed him around a little , he was madder than a wet hen. Underneath the photo it said he was the master mind of 9-11, so is he or isn’t he? I thought it was Bin Laden.

    I am in the process of looking for another place to live, I was thinking about Canada but they are involved in that North American Union and although they won’t be as bad off as Americans they will still have a lot of traffic and immigrants walkting in and out of there but its nice, I have been there a few times so I’ll see if I can do that, its not that easy to get into a foreign country, only here , its like a slum here now. When the people who run this country don’t take care of it thats what happens, it becones a run down slum that no one cares about. I know a lot of people who want to leave , this does not have the American flavor it once had, thats what communism does, they are the most depressing people but they live like kings themselves, they can have it all now.

    There was no where for this country to go except down, once the UN came in with its greed and corruption it was all over, a bunch of anti-Americans, Obama signed the law of The Seas Treaty and gave over all rights to our Oceans, great Lakes, rivers the Caribean and any puddle you have in your back yard. I would love to see the deed to that Ocean, I had no idea we actually owned it, I would like to see the deed, I know we have boundries mutually agreed upon, I can understand that but no one owns the Oceans or a stream on someones property except the person who owns th eproperty, I would never stop anyone from taking a drink from a stream I owned. If you want nuclear power or Plutonium to make a bomb you have to get it through the UN, they are our mom and Dad now, thats why I am running away from home. Obama does nothing without them, that rag tag bunch of foreigners who are just waiting to foist their constitution on us, they did it in the UK, I don’t know why they think they are qualified to run the world , even if it is for the Rothchilds and the Counbcil on foreign Relations. These are people who sit around discussing how to get rid of us, especially people over 60 who they think are useless eaters, I was thinking the same thing about them, David Rockefeller is 93, what has he got planned for the future, over population? he has about 7 kids and he’s talking about over population? I know how he could make it one less person breathing my air.

    People either have to strand up to this regime and get the UN out and all of these treasonous groups out or else burn the place down,walk away and go somewhere else. They kind of ruined that for us too, nothing like importing millions of incompatible immigrants who want to kill you to keep people in line. These power elite people have been practicing nazi methods of taking over for years, depopulation, genetic engineering, chips and mind control, they are all crazy. We thought we won the war? no, you can’t sit down and have a cup of coffee without watching your back anymore. They will probably Nuke us and blame Bin Ladens followers. We’ll know where the Nuclear power came from anyway.
