Why? – 21 Unanswered Questions That They Don’t Want You To Look Into

Do you ever get the feeling that the mainstream media is feeding you a very watered-down and twisted version of the news?  Do you ever get the feeling that the federal government does not believe that the American people can actually be trusted with the truth?  It is exasperating to realize that the news that the public is being fed every single day is very heavily filtered and very heavily censored.  In a world where “spin” is everything, simply telling the truth is a revolutionary act.  Fortunately, the Internet has helped fuel the rise of the alternative media, and millions of Americans that are starting to wake up are turning to the alternative media for answers to their unanswered questions.  Increasingly, people are becoming willing to question the orthodoxy that is being shoved down their throats by the major news networks, and that is a very good thing.  The world is becoming an incredibly unstable place, and it is more imperative than ever that we all learn to think for ourselves.  We live during a time of great deception, and the lies are going to get even bigger and even more bold in the years to come.  If we don’t know why we believe what we believe, then we are in danger of falling for just about anything.


It is those that seek the truth that end up finding it.  If you just accept the version of reality that the system wants to feed you, then you are probably going to become what the system wants you to become.

But if you are not afraid to question everything, then you will have a chance to become everything that you were always meant to be.

So what are some things that we should be questioning right now?

The following are 21 unanswered questions that they don’t want you to look into….

#1 Why is the TSA being allowed to conduct warrantless searches at bus stations and train stations all over America?  According to an article in the Guardian, the following motto is displayed at the TSA’s air marshal training center: “Dominate. Intimidate. Control.”  Why is there no outrage over this?

#2 Why does the TSA believe that it is necessary to pat-down a 7-year-old girl with cerebral palsy?  Does touching the private areas of disabled little girls really improve our national security?

#3 Why does the Department of Homeland Security need Predator-B drones to patrol the border between the United States and Canada?

#4 Why is a militarized “Red Zone” being set up in Chicago three weeks prior to the upcoming NATO summit on May 20th and 21st?

#5 Why is the Milwaukee Red Cross being told to prepare for an evacuation of Chicago?

#6 Why is cesium-137 from the Fukushima nuclear disaster still showing up in milk in Montpelier, Vermont?  The following is from a recent Forbes article….

Radiation from Japan has been detected in drinking water in 13 more American cities, and cesium-137 has been found in American milk—in Montpelier, Vermont—for the first time since the Japan nuclear disaster began, according to data released by the Environmental Protection Agency late Friday.

#7 Why is there such little uproar over CISPA?  CISPA is going to allow companies to share our private online information with the government almost at will.  The following is from an article posted on the website of the Electronic Frontier Foundation….

CISPA creates an exception to all privacy laws to permit companies to share our information with each other and with the government in the name of cybersecurity. … CISPA’s ‘information sharing’ regime allows the transfer of vast amounts of data, including sensitive information like internet use history or the content of emails, to any agency in the government including military and intelligence agencies like the National Security Agency or the Department of Defense Cyber Command. Once in government hands, this information can be used for any non-regulatory purpose so long as one significant purpose is for cybersecurity or to protect national security.

#8 Why aren’t more people in the mainstream media alarmed that the economies of 11 different western nations have plunged into recession?

#9 Why did an ounce of gold only cost $58 in 1972 but it costs more than $1660 today?

#10 Why has the median price of a new home risen from $17,200 in 1963 to $212,000 today?

#11 Why are so many banks issuing credit cards that can have information silently stolen off of them by any thief that is willing to invest in a contactless credit card reader?

#12 Why have most Americans never even heard of the University of Pittsburgh study that found that common vaccines that we give our children produce autism-like symptoms in monkeys?

#13 Why is Wall Street laying off thousands of workers if the economy is getting better?

#14 Why has Spain banned all cash transactions over 2,500 euros?

#15 Why is there such a push to get more kids to go to college if most college graduates cannot find a decent job once they graduate?  Why is Mitt Romney telling young Americans to borrow money from their parents to get the education that they “need”?

#16 Why does the mainstream media in America almost completely ignore the brutal terror attacks that happen regularly in many countries in Africa?  For example, just the other day more than a dozen Christians were killed by a terror attack in the northern Nigerian city of Kano.  Back in January, nearly 200 were killed in coordinated attacks in that same city.  So why does the U.S. media very rarely ever talk about this?

#17 Why was a radical activist who once stated that he “wished all Republicans were ****ing dead” invited to speak at the National High School Journalism Convention?  Is it any surprise that he declared to his audience of high school students that we should all “learn to ignore the bulls— in the Bible“?

#18 Why did Barack Obama recently update an old executive order so that now he will be able to take charge of all food, all energy, all health resources and all transportation resources in the United States even in “non-emergency” situations?

#19 Why are federal government agencies stockpiling massive amounts of food and ammunition?  Do they know something that we don’t?

#20 Why will a mysterious Spanish company be reporting the election results for hundreds of U.S. jurisdictions on election day 2012?

#21 Why do “scientific reports” that proclaim that there is a desperate need for global population control get very prominent coverage in newspapers all over the western world?

    Right on the pulse! The statistics you publish in this “one stop shop” here and on the ECB are astounding. Hopefully it will encourage many more to sit up and take notice and follow through with their own additional research and get the word out to as many as possible.

    CNN are reported to have LOST 50% of their viewers in February. The report went on to state that the public were becoming sickened by the wall to wall political coverage, where they know Ron Paul has been getting deliberately “blanked out”. The nonsensical war talk with Iran was also mentioned as a tremendous put off. Yeah, switch off. I have anyway.

    The PTB obviously believe they have done enough to gag the public and dumb down their thinking abilities. Clearly not the case. People can now see very clearly that there is a far bigger picture going on, yet most feel powerless. People are anything but! Grouping together with the like minded should help produce positive feelings and build confidence. Others will get their heads out the sand eventually.

    I personally believe more than ever that this years US election should not be based on a choice between “two” parties (which are controlled by the same people), but a choice on which candidate offers the best recovery solutions. There only is one choice and that choice is committed to shutting down the Federal Reserve cartel and eliminating the fiat banking system. Does that choice not need to go “independent” to stand a chance of winning?

    Only then can the USA rebuild. So can every other country that is laden by a debt based ponzi system. Only then can revenue raised through taxation pay for the countries required infrastructure, instead of it being used to pay off debt based interest to the private banking system. I am very surprised more people do not understand the modus operandi being applied.

    The higher the borrowing, the higher the interest and the higher taxation becomes until a country ends up “throttled”. At that stage, austerity measures simply turn sovereign nations into cabal/cartel controlled serf regimes with zero future. Whilst all this is going on of course, many have bought derivatives that are multiple insured, so ensuring a “credit default swap” occurs, pays out huge sums of money to the game players.

    Spain is about to get the treatment Greece had. I would seriously question the legitimacy of the money “created” for the loans and bailouts. Note that whatever is “created” out of thin air (doesn’t really exist), the taxpayer still has the burden to pay on the interest. It’s a VILE system. Until Eurozone countries boot out Goldman Sachs and their purposely installed government puppets, not much will change I’m afraid.

    For those who want to learn more about the IRS, lookup Aaron Russo. The full length documentary he made about it is available on YouTube. His “on camera” investigations into IRS “illegality” are astounding. Enjoy.

  • Benjik

    21 questions……..Agenda 21……Coincidence? I think not! J/K Mr. M, great job on yet another serious, thought-provoking article. As to #17, it is BEYOND ironic and extremely hypocritical for a so-called anti-bullying “activist” to single out a group of people and call them “Pansy-A**’s”…….at a conference condemning such activity. That’s like having KFC cater a PETA convention.

    • Gay Veteran

      hmmmm, maybe you should get the FULL story (and odd #17 above wasn’t updated):


      On “Bullshit” and “Pansy-Assed”
      Posted by Dan Savage on Sun, Apr 29, 2012 at 9:01 AM

      I would like to apologize for describing that walk out as a pansy-assed move. I wasn’t calling the handful of students who left pansies (2800+ students, most of them Christian, stayed and listened), just the walk-out itself. But that’s a distinction without a difference—kinda like when religious conservatives tells their gay friends that they “love the sinner, hate the sin.” They’re often shocked when their gay friends get upset because, hey, they were making a distinction between the person (lovable!) and the person’s actions (not so much!). But gay people feel insulted by “love the sinner, hate the sin” because it is insulting. Likewise, my use of “pansy-assed” was insulting, it was name-calling, and it was wrong. And I apologize for saying it.

      As for what I said about the Bible…

      A smart Christian friend involved politics writes: “In America today you just can’t refer, even tangentially, to someone’s religion as ‘bullshit.’ You should apologize for using that word.”

      I didn’t call anyone’s religion bullshit. I did say that there is bullshit—”untrue words or ideas”—in the Bible. That is being spun as an attack on Christianity. Which is bullshhh… which is untrue. I was not attacking the faith in which I was raised. I was attacking the argument that gay people must be discriminated against—and anti-bullying programs that address anti-gay bullying should be blocked (or exceptions should be made for bullying “motivated by faith”)—because it says right there in the Bible that being gay is wrong. Yet the same people who make that claim choose to ignore what the Bible has to say about a great deal else. I did not attack Christianity. I attacked hypocrisy. My remarks can only be read as an attack on all Christians if you believe that all Christians are hypocrites. Which I don’t believe.

      On other occasions I’ve made the same point without using the word bullshit…

      We can learn to ignore what the bible says about gay people the same way we have learned to ignore what the Bible says about clams and figs and farming and personal grooming and menstruation and masturbation and divorce and virginity and adultery and slavery. Let’s take slavery. We ignore what the Bible says about slavery in both the Old and New Testaments. And the authors of the Bible didn’t just fail to condemn slavery. They endorsed slavery: “Slaves obey your masters.” In his book Letter to a Christian Nation, Sam Harris writes that the Bible got the easiest moral question humanity has ever faced wrong. The Bible got slavery wrong. What are the odds that the Bible got something as complicated as human sexuality wrong? I’d put those odds at about 100%.

      It shouldn’t be hard for modern Christians to ignore what the bible says about gay people because modern Christians—be they conservative fundamentalists or liberal progressives—already ignore most of what the Bible says about sex and relationships. Divorce is condemned in the Old and New Testaments. Jesus Christ condemned divorce. Yet divorce is legal and there is no movement to amend state constitutions to ban divorce. Deuteronomy says that if a woman is not a virgin on her wedding night she shall be dragged to her father’s doorstep and stoned to death. Callista Gingrich lives. And there is no effort to amend state constitutions to make it legal to stone the third Mrs. Gingrich to death.

      …and maybe I shouldn’t have used the word bullshit in this instance. But while it may have been a regrettable word choice, my larger point stands: If believers can ignore what the Bible says about slavery, they can ignore what the Bible says about homosexuality. (The Bible also says some beautiful things that are widely ignored: “Sell what you possess and give to the poor… and come, follow me.” You better get right on that, Joel.)

      Finally, here’s Mark Twain on the Bible:

      It is full of interest. It has noble poetry in it; and some clever fables; and some blood-drenched history; and some good morals; and a wealth of obscenity; and upwards of a thousand lies.

      I’m not guilty of saying anything that hasn’t been said before and—yes—said much better. What is “bullshit” in this context but “upwards of a thousand lies” in modern American English? And while those slamming me most loudly for “pansy-assed” may be on the right, they are also in the right. I see their point and, again, I apologize for describing the walk-out as “pansy-assed.” But they are wrong when they claim that I “attacked Christianity.” There are untrue things in the Bible—and the Koran and the Book of Mormon and every other “sacred” text—and you don’t have to take my word for it: just look at all the biblical “shoulds,” “shall nots,” and “abominations” that religious conservatives already choose to ignore. They know that not everything in the Bible is true.

      All Christians read the Bible selectively. Some read it hypocritically—and the hypocrites react very angrily when anyone has the nerve to point that out.

    Saw this evening’s “ABC World News Tonight”, where Diane Sawyer (the golden goddess of truthful information… burp) broadcast a story about the correlation between childhood obesity and childhood Type 2 diabetes.

    Could there possibly be a relationship between the two? Ya think?? Maybe the folks at ABC, and the rest of the mainstream media, should focus a little more closely on that.

    There are so many LIES that it is hard to know where to start.
    A worker at the Pentagon named April Gallop on 11 Sept 2001 walked OUT of the hole in the wall of the Pentagon. There was no 100 tons of wreckage of a Boeing 757 in her way. Only a TOTAL FOOL believes that a large commercial airliner hit the Pentagon, just as only a TOTAL FOOL believes that a large commercial airliner BURIED itself at Shanksville with no signs of a large airliner crash……no bodies, no seats, no luggage, no pieces of airframe…..ZIP, NADA. All of the US government’s 911 story is a LIE. Now, what has the 911 false flag attack by very high levels of the US government and Israel gotten for the USA?? An unnecessary war that has needlessly killed hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraquis. Stunning debt. And, worse of all, TSA VIPR Gestago roaming America to harass, subjugate and crush Americans. No, they do not want you to look into it……..Be sure to vote for your incumbents in Nov. As for the Obummer, he is a complete fraud and phoney. The sad part is that the alternative to the evil Obummer is another NeoCon and UNAMERICAN joke named Romney.

    • mondobeyondo

      September 11, 2001 is the nexus of our contemporary history. Nearly everything else is influenced by what happened that day.

      If it was in fact an inside job, then the whole official explanation – everything the U.S. government has said and done in Afghanistan, begins to crumble before our eyes. If Osama bin Laden was innocent, and in fact the entire operation was conducted by Pentagon and CIA higher-ups, there would have been no need for a war in Afghanistan. The lives of many thousands of men and women could have been spared.

      That’s a little beyond my scope though. JFK assassination conspiracy theories are more my focus of expertise… not 9/11 conspiracy theories.

      Iraq? That falls apart as well. The whole “shock and awe” thing was cool – surely Steven Spielberg and George Lucas were taking notes, for their next action films – but really? George W. Bush is still looking for those weapons of mass destruction, isn’t he? Yes, of course he is. Just like O.J. Simpson is still looking for the “real killers” while he’s not playing golf.

      The following material will not be for everybody! If you are totally satisfied with the “Official” 9/11 story, which is in itself full of holes, please do not view links 1-8. However, 9 may prove educational.

      William, the following links may fill in any gaps with your 9/11 knowledge. This is some of the most astounding material I have come across, having carried out 5 years of in depth research.

      The content in some of the links may well be “providing” some foresight as to “similar advanced warnings”.. this time for the London Olympics. The many “pre” 9/11 warnings will quickly become clear. The problem was “decoding” the messages. It works like this. “They” will always publicise what “they” are going to do in advance, one way or another. If the plan isn’t compromised, it will likely go ahead.

      Checkout the UK MSM re the outrageous Olympics security buildup. It’s more like the “Military Games”. You only do this on a sporting occasion if you expect massive “retaliation”, or an “onsite” event with other motives that are “Agenda/Great Plan/NWO related. There may be a connection with a planned summer attack on Iran followed by a “false flag” attack here.

      They call it “order out of chaos”.

When everything starts decending into chaos, it’s going to get real ugly, real quick. The Constitution is on life support, literally one disaster away from termination. If you hunt around this blog, and other places on the internet, you can piece together a pretty scary story thatwould be worthy of a $300 million Hollywood movie. For most of us, it’s going to be the Zombie Apocalypse. Unfortunately, we’re going to be playing the part of the zombies as we scrabble for scraps. That is, unless you prepare now.

    when we let media become so concentrated this is the problem. A bunch of rich ********* onw them all.

    • Graham


      I always enjoy reading your postings, but realise, the “rich” who own “all” the corporate media, are the same controlling factions who also “own” BOTH political parties, Congress and the Senate. They also “own” the Military Industrial Complex, Pharmaceutical giants, Big Banks, Wall Street, Insurance giants, the Federal Reserve and Food/Drink giants.. and so on it goes. They also control most of the music and film industry. It has taken over 100 years to reach this point in time. Read links at bottom if in doubt.

      Realise that it doesn’t really matter which side you vote for, the parties are polarised for a reason. Politics keeps the masses divided and they make for a fantastic distraction. When one party becomes unpopular, or has served its specific agenda, they will switch the polarity and heavily promote the other. What happened to the CHANGE Obama promised? Got it?

      Democracy is “mob” rule, nothing else. The USA was formed as a Republic then became a Democratic Republic. It is now a Plutocracy, as can be witnessed by all the “unconstitutional” Executive Orders being passed. The problem is you have “two” Constitutions. Only one is genuine and fit for purpose. The other is based on “the color of law”. Now you know where the majority of the military stand. Watch them act upon their oath!

      Political opposition is a purposely created “illusion” to keep the masses asleep whilst “they” get on with their bigger plans. Do your homework dude. I know you hold a specific corner in both Michael’s forums, but believe me, it is completely wasted energy! Politics are “cyclical” for a reason. A reason they prefer “nobody” to understand, except their own.

      Vote Ron Paul if he goes independent and get the USA sorted out and the “original” Constitution reinstated. That is the one based on Common Law, not the one based on Admiralty Law. Believe me, it is your countries best hope. That is why they are doing everything including blatant voter fraud to keep him at arms length and make him look very unattractive. Remember, many people will do as the mainstream media directs them. Switch off!

      Notice how the young and the military support him in huge numbers and remain extremely loyal. There is a lot at stake! The young people are your future. Where do you want your country to be? In the hands of proven “Luciferians” who worship Saturn (Satan)? Some chose the “Tree of Life”, others chose the the “Tree of Knowledge”. That choice took shape in the “Garden of Eden” (symbolically).

      Research what the “rings” of the Olympic logo stand for, especially the “black” ring. The rings have nothing whatsoever to do with the ancient Greek games! It is “their” global platform and “they” act upon it every four years for ritualistic reasons and mass global consumption. Not long to go. If you are impatient, review the closing ceremony of the LA 1984 games. The ceremony of the “Fallen Angel” (Research: Nephilim).

      If you understand quantum physics, you will realise we are cosmic beings, not mind controlled puppets. However, take your pick. It’s all down to “freewill” and how you use it. Just bear in mind we are essentially only using “half a brain”, of which we have on average 10% conscious awareness of what occurs in that “half”. That leaves 90% room for improvement… if you look at it positively.

      Apologies [again] for the “sermon”.

    [#15 Why is there such a push to get more kids to go to college if most college graduates cannot find a decent job once they graduate? Why is Mitt Romney telling young Americans to borrow money from their parents to get the education that they “need”?]

    ORomney tells them this because the alternative is to tell them the truth – that even if they get a good education, their chances of being gainfully employed are so much less now, plus they’ll still be stuck with paying off all that student debt for many years to come. And his pals in the student loan business will effectively own these new debt slaves for life. Ka-ching! That’s the sound of massive amounts of money being made by lenders as well as the sound of shackles being applied to debt slaves.

    During an election campaign, politicians know telling Americans the truth will not go over well. Instead, fantasy sells well. Ron Paul is the exception, which is one reason why he will not be nominated for president.

    I feel that you have insulted the Royal Society by placing quotes around the words scientific reports. This isn’t a fly-by-night operation, but a well established and respected institution.

    The Royal Society is one of the oldest learned societies dedicated to science in the world. This organization was granted in 1660 a royal charter by King Charles II, and has acted as an official scientific advisor to the British government since then. Other functions that this Society perform for Britain include an Academy of Science and granting funds for research fellowships and scientific start-up companies.

    For those of you who believe in honesty and openness in the media, I present this quote, popularly attributed to John Swinton. I’ve seen others claim this is fabricated. Actual or merely wishful, it seems very apropos.

    “Asked to give a toast before the prestigious New York Press Club in 1880, John Swinton, the former Chief of Staff at the New York Times, made this candid confession [it’s worth noting that Swinton was called “The Dean of His Profession” by other newsmen, who admired him greatly]:

    “”There is no such thing, at this date of the world’s history, 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 opinions out of the paper I am connected with. Others
    of you are paid similar 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 journalist is to destroy the truth; to lie outright; to pervert; to
    vilify; to fawn at the feet of Mammon, and to sell the country 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 the 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. “”

    I’ve written here before about my friend who worked at NBC news writing the affiliate news that ran prior to the national evening feed. It was alllll crap. No one at NBC news had any illusion that what they were doing was anything other than entertainment. It’s crafted to be as insipid, stupid, lowest-common-denominator as possible.

    If you want to know what’s going on, you’re going to have to work realll hard to get your BS meter finely tuned. You have to learn enough to be able to gist the truth, even when there isn’t much to work with. You need to know enough about the world in general to be able to call BS on a fictional news story. And you need to get as many sources as possible, preferably from widely unrelated sources. Like comparing the Washington Post with FOX with CNN with Pravda with Le Monde and the BBC with some internet rumors, research, and topical reading and analysis thrown in. Reporters must be some combination of liar and ignorant tool to create the stories we see. I’ve seen them identify pistols as machine guns. I was just reading Ric Edelman’s account of a reporter who asked to use his name for a quote given by another finance writer who refused to give permission to be quoted. Ric refused, gave his own quote, then refused to approve its use when the writer’s editor decided he didn’t like the tone of the quote and changed it to make the economic forecast sound nicer. Watch how the press interacts with the White House Press Officer. It’s rarely critical questions as much as softballs. In fact, the next time the lamestream media (fast becoming the legacy media as others look for their own truth) looks into the bonafides of our current resident, it will be the first time.

    I was in Russia in 1998 when they devalued the Ruble. For a month prior, Soros was calling for Yeltsin to devalue the Ruble because it was overvalued in his opinion. Soon, the press was full of reports declaring it had to happen. I traveled all over Russia and the Ukraine during this time. While the New York Slimes and the Herald Tribune and BBC and others reported on food riots and bank runs in Moscow, I saw stores full of food and streets full of perfectly calm people commuting to work. Everything was plentiful, aside from pension money for the elderly. The interesting thing about the reporting was the stories were virtually identical at this point between the NYTimes, HT, Manchester Guardian, BBC, and others. Seriously, they were almost word-for-word in some cases.

    Russians told me they had been preparing for the devaluation because they knew it was coming for at least 6 months. Then, Yeltsin went on TV to declare he would never devalue the Ruble, which told every Russian it would happen the next day. And it did. (One Russian explained to me that in Russia, you learn to read between the lines before you read the lines, themselves. Good advice for Americans.) The Western media was reporting the devaluation at 6am Moscow time, as I prepared to depart, however it wasn’t until approximately 11am Moscow time that the official numbers were released. I thought it was strange, since I would have figured the government would announce that decision during their normal business hours, but I won’t claim to be an expert on that kind of thing.

    As the situation had developed over the previous several weeks, it seemed like a whispering campaign, rumors, and fake news stories had built to a crescendo before the event finally occurred. I felt like the powers that be had engineered the event. Those were tense times, too. During the anniversary celebrations for the battle of Kursk, there was talk there might be a coup. We thought we might see tanks in the streets. I believe this was about the time Yeltsin went out for a cruise on the Kirov and was filmed as they test-fired the guns, a blunt show of force to the nation. (It’s been a while, so that might have been a different event.) I was left feeling like Winston Smith, since I had first-hand experience of a big news story that was nothing like what was being reported at home and no one would have believed it if they hadn’t seen it.

    I forget-did Ben Franklin say, “never believe what you hear and only half of what you see,” or was it someone else?

    Having worked part time for the TSA for a while until I couldn’t stand it any longer, I know why they feel the need to pat down children and people in wheel chairs…

    They are convinced that terrorists do not give a cow turd about using anyone to achieve their goals and human life means nothing to them….TSA Management therefore believes that if the terrorists see that we give children, sick or disabled people less of a search, no search or a reduced search, that they have more of a chance to hide a bomb on a such a person that may make it through security…SO….TSA has this absolutely NO exceptions, politically correct answer, everyone gets a full search each and every time if they alarm or cannot go through the metal detectors.
    There is no discretion allowed, there is no looking at other factors, YOU WILL SEARCH.
    As a police officer, I never had to search someone who was not being arrested. I could pat down if I suspected they had an illegal weapon, but it was always my decision and I had to be able to justify why I did the search. The TSA is exactly the opposite, except that you cannot decide NOT to search.
    Keep in mind that the TSA has never yet stopped someone with a bomb from actually getting on the plane, and yet the people that work for them are NOT allowed think for themselves. Management will say that is BS, you can always search MORE, but you can never do LESS than the full invasive search. It does not matter 1 iota who you have in front of you, you will search that person COMPLETELY regardless of anything else going on…
    The TSA has a gazillion regulations like that drove me over the edge and I had to quit for my mental health, even though the pay for the work was fair and the benefits were very good.

    All of you saying that praising or praying to god are only wasting your time while waiting for your demise. Organized religion was created for this exact reason, so the sheeple will just sit around praying and waiting while the true evil doers get away with murder and corruption. Wake up! Wake up! Help your fellow man by actually doing something instead of just asking for help from a mythical being!

  • 3 MORE QUESTIONS to all Christians whom claim to be patriots.

    QUESTION 22 ….. Why have Christians played a passive role in the many issues – especially “Eugenics” being practiced by our government!?!

    QUESTION 23 ….. Why are Christians so under educated on Constitutional and Governmental issues? SEE: The United States is NOT a Country! – It’s a Corporation

    QUESTION 24 ….. Why do ALL pastors duck my questions on these issues?
    Are they afraid of loosing their 501c3 Status? (that means they worship money over protecting Americans God given unalienable rights!!! SHAME!!!!) Are churches servants to God and his people or the state?

    … If we fail to act we are plundering the wonderful gift of freedom he gave us. That’s not honoring God at all.

    … Will God honor us if we just “pray to God” while we take no responsibility to act?

    Answer me!!!!

  • One Simple Answer

    Because Americans have become so selfish, fat, lazy and stupid over the past 30-40 years that they no longer care about anything except what fulfills their immediate needs for self-gratification.

    Feel free to blame this on a host of ills in society. Poisons and drugs in our water, food, air etc. Ever increasing ridiculous amounts of vaccinations “required” for children. Constant televised brainwashing playing on our fears every minute of every day. Gov using every possible means to exacerbate divide and conquer along race, religion, creed you name it. Anything to stop consensus. I could go one forever but you get the point.

  • jimpeel

    From the article:

    “Why does the mainstream media in America almost completely ignore the brutal terror attacks that happen regularly in many countries in Africa?”

    Because they are Black and they are expendable. No one cares as far as the press is concerned. They don’t fear African Blacks the way they do American Blacks. African Blacks are far removed from the sphere of influence; and they don’t have the likes of Jackson and Sharpton to rabble-rouse them into city-destroying riots so they are not newsworthy.

    Hitler Discovers Obama Occupied His “Forward” Theme

  • Kelby

    Sorry, but I agree with that activist in #17 about the Bible. Are we really supposed to believe in a 2,000 year old, obviously OUTDATED book that condones slavery, rape, polygamy, concubines? If God is so “perfect,” then why does he send “sinners” into ETERNAL TORMENT for a few sins committed?? I can’t think of a SINGLE person now that deserves ETERNAL punishment!! Hitler and all the syncophants of t

  • Paul

    I’m amazed that that so many of you have such opinions of the Holy Bible when your opinions are clearly based on misguided gossip rather than the facts of what the Bible teaches. Scripture not only disapproves of slavery, but promises retribution for all who lead others into slavery. The Word you so adamantly reject, you obviously know little about. You cannot pick and choose passages that appear to support your false allegations, and expect to be credible or to know the truth. Your lack of knowledge about that which you attempt to write and speak so authoritatively is astounding. If you had actually read the entirety of that which you so quickly criticize, you would have discovered that the Holy Bible is a love letter to man from God, the entire Message of which can be summed up in two verses: Love the Lord your God with all your heart, strength, soul, and mind, and the second is love your neighbor as you love yourself.
    Clearly, you stand among those who have been given great delusion in your defiance and rebellion, just as Scripture has prophesied. It might profit you greatly to read Hosea 4:6 with the intelligence that you still have, and then actually read the Message of the New Covenant before you seal your fate. As “wise” as you all are, a word should be sufficient!

    • Lol

      Yikes. Are you sure you’ve read the Bible? Because, seriously, slavery (among other atrocities) are not at all discouraged. Delusions.

  • Roger E Tracy

    Well, I would say given all things being equal, which they are not. A great many of these questions can be answered by a single word. Progressives.
    The term is now progressives. Used to be left wing, and socialist. Before that, it was communism and the Carl Marks movement. Now after decades of mixing up the pot, it has come down to this. I also would say it looks like matters are coming to a head concerning all this in our lifetime. So in a sense. Obama did in fact bring, or is about to bring to a head, change. Be it not the change he wanted, but change none the less. For I do not see this country going down the road to oblivion as some would suggest. You must admit the pendulum is hard over to the left at this point in time. And back it will swing in do course. If you will note all the unrest in the country rearing it ugly head now. Seems to me there is only a small amount of people that are stewing the put. and the general public being the pot, there is a hell of a lot in there. Just like sheep. They will follow, even to the point of going over the cliff. But not all. The ones that don’t, will fight to bring order to an otherwise order less society. Hopefully they will be able to through a safety net under to ones that have gone over the cliff. Not sure at this time what form that net will be, but there it is. You did ask. RETW
