The government lied to us all. That is a fact. Are you going to do something about it?

The evidence for the US Government having deliberately lied to the people of this nation to trick them into supporting a war of conquest is now overwhelming. The Downing Street Memos, the "Dodgy Dossier", the forged Nigerian "Yellow Cake" papers, Colin Powell’s fraudulent presentation to the UN, .etc .etc .etc all establish a clear pattern of intentional deception.

The government lied to us all. The mainstream media helped them do it. So did Israel. Yes, all those necessary hundreds of people needed to promote the lie did all conspire to do exactly that. That is a fact, and it is time to accept it.

That lie, profitable for a few, has cost the rest of us a great deal. Families have lost loved ones. The government says about 1800. But we dare not trust that claim because we now know the government lies. There are indications that the government has been "fudging the books" by not counting as killed in action soldiers who die in or on their way to the hospitals. During a recent MSNBC interview of the officer in charge of processing the personal items of dead soldiers, he let slip that his unit alone had processed 3500 such sets of personal items. Other reports from Germany suggest that the US has lost close to 10,000 young men and women in Iraq.

Then there are the wounded. Officially numbered as around 10,000, but like the KIA figures, most likely a lie. These are young men and women whose lives will forever be changed by the crippling injuries they have suffered. Even those men and women who come home without any visible signs of injury are carrying with them depleted uranium contamination, which will give rise to increased cancers and leukemia, and an epidemic of birth defects in children not yet born. These young men and women also carry with them the memory of deeds done in support of a war they know was morally and legally wrong.

All of us, along with the moral burden of an illegal war of conquest, carry the financial burden, already over $1000 for each and every American, including babies. That $1000 is borrowed money, so you are also paying the interest on that loan, plus Congress continues to pour more money into Iraq and Afghanistan, and gets ready to follow the President (and Israel) into yet another war in yet another Mideast country.

Beyond the direct costs you will be forced to pay, the lies of the government cost you in other ways. Fuel prices have skyrocketed. The claim that Iraq’s oil would pay for the cost of the war has proven as false as every other claim about Iraq. For each $150 million in oil the US takes out of Iraq, the US spends about $5 billion. Meanwhile, as the US continues to do Israel’s bidding, and attacks Israel enemies, those enemies, who have the oil we need, are less inclined to cut the US any special deals. Meanwhile, those machines needed to wage war burn fuel at a profligate rate, reducing supply and increasing demand. Some of Iraq’s oil is being sent to Israel, so even less is available for your cars and trucks. So the price at the pump goes up. And it is going up as a direct result of the US Government lying to trick this nation into a war of conquest.

As the price of fuel goes up, so too does the price of everything else. Electricity created by fuel-driven generators costs more, which means your home lighting and air conditioning bill goes up. So does the cooling at the market, which means they have to raise prices on top of the increase they are already paying because it now costs more to truck products into the market from the farms, which also use fuel to run their farm equipment and must increase their prices as well. Increase on top of increase on top of increase on top of increase. And all of it trickling down to you. That is the price YOU pay, every single day, for the lies that sent this nation to war. So don’t pretend the lies don’t affect you, they do. Every time you fill up your tank or buy groceries or turn on a light, you are paying for the lies that tricked this nation into war.

So, now that we know the government lies to the people, the government can no longer claim the presumption of honesty. The government’s credibility is shot. And they will not soon get it back. The burden of proof has shifted. No longer are critics required to prove that the government is lying, the government must prove that it is telling the truth. The time has come for the wise and prudent citizen is going to step back and examine what other claims the government has made for accuracy and honesty. After all, government is the single most expensive purchase we are all forced to make and we have a right to be just as careful that we are getting our money’s worth as if we were buying a used car or a house. We have a customer’s right to open the hood, kick the tires, and demand proof that there are no termites!

So, what else have we been lied to about?

We now know that earlier Presidents have tricked us into wars. FDR not only knew the Japanese were about to attack Pearl Harbor but that he had intentionally goaded them into it, to get the US into the war against Hitler. LBJ lied about the Gulf of Tonkin. McKinley lied about the USS Maine.

Most Americans are now aware that the Warren Report lied about the "crazed lone gunman" theory. The House Select Committee on Assassinations proved (and subsequent advances in technology have confirmed) that there was more than one gunman shooting at John F. Kennedy in Dealey Plaza. Likewise the Robert Kennedy assassination, in which the government still clings to the official story that Sirhan Sirhan fired 11 shots from an 8 shot weapon. More recently, the official story that Vincent Foster committed suicide unraveled rather quickly at the hands of blogs like this one.

So, what else have we been lied to about?

Is the economy improving? It’s hard to accept this claim when one looks at the crumbling infrastructure, closed emergency rooms, and impoverished public schools in our nation. Of the world’s 30 top industrialized nations, the US comes in 29th in the issue of child poverty. Only Mexico has more children living in poverty than the US.

In the 12 years of Reagan/Bush-1, the US went from the world’s largest creditor nation to the world’s largest debtor nation, all to pay for a gigantic hoax called the Strategic Defense Initiative. The US Government is now so mired in debt that all the income tax collected from all the citizens cannot even keep up with the interest payments. Their solution? Raise taxes, cut services, keep on borrowing and stick the next generation with the payments.

Over the last thirty years, as business leaders dropped product development in favor of "financial instruments" as the path to success, manufacturing and manufacturing jobs have steadily moved to the more business-friendly climates in other nations. Products invented in the US are now imported into the US and the net result is a billion and a half a DAY trade deficit which is prevented from sinking the dollar only through yet more borrowing.

Americans are now aware that there never was a budget surplus under Clinton. He simply looted the Social Security trust fund and spent the money as if it were general funds. The Social Security system is full of government IOUs, which can be redeemed ONLY through more taxation of the people. Bush is trying to "Privatize" Social Security to conceal the looting, in the hopes that if the money gets shifted around in circles fast enough, most Americans won’t realize how much of it is already gone.

Are federal income taxes even legal? In two recent landmark cases, defendants who refused to file federal income tax were acquitted when the US Government was unable to cite an actual law compelling citizens to pay an income tax. For years questions have been raised regarding the ratification of the 16th amendment, followed by years of avoidance of the issue by the government. Did they lie about ratification of the tax amendment? Only a fool would assume the government was any more truthful back then than they have demonstrated to be today.

As election after election rolls by, the evidence of massive vote fraud in this country becomes more obvious, and equally obvious is the role of the mainstream media, the supposed watchdog of government abuse, in dismissing and trivializing the issue. This should come as no surprise, since it is the media which owns the company that tallies the votes in the national elections.

What have they lied to us about? It would seem that it’s pretty much everything. Americans are the most lied-to people on the face of the Earth.

In the end, the issue facing the American people goes beyond any one lie. The Constitution does not authorize the government to lie to the people. The Tenth amendment forbids the government from arrogating that right to itself. Therefore, when the government lies, it acts illegally and unconstitutionally. A government that lies to the people breaks faith with the people, and loses the moral and legal right to rule. A government that lies to the people delegitimizes itself.

There is no legal argument that can be put forward that We The People are obligated to obey or pay taxes to a government that has, by virtue of their lies, rendered itself illegitimate. The moment the US Government lied about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, We The People were freed of any promise or covenant to obey, support, or defend that government.

Because Bush lied to the Congress in his letter of March 18, 2003, the Congressional authorization for the use of force in Iraq is not legally in effect. Therefore, no serviceman or servicewoman is legally obligated to serve in Iraq one more day.

As long as we tolerate lies in government we will live under a government that lies to us. And because of those lies, we can never know the truth of the world we live in, whether taxes are legal, wars are just, our economy as good as it can be. On the day We The People have the strength to make the cost of a lie outweigh the gain, on the day We The People drag the liars from office and hurl them into the streets in the most humiliating manner possible, then and only then will we have a government that is truthful.

And we will not have it one day before.

We have caught the government lying to us. What will you do about it?

This is the central fact in all of world history since the rise of Babylonian City state systems and now to corporations
Monday June 27 - 21:22 - Posted by e5fef0e6e3700581...

Yes we the people of the world have been living in an expanding architecture of subtle mind control and psychologcial manipulation techniques. It started with the legal and religious of ancient Babylon with their indoctrination into the human psyche the laws and punishments of their religious dogma. Their creation of false temples of spiritual worship filled with paid prostitutes of pleasure to lure believers and agricultural workers to support their temple profit schemes. They built the first city state systems which grew into the modern cultures centered around these money collecting, structure building, army backed money oriented theocracies of false religions. As soon as the world understands that these systems are all interelated forms of psychic domination and mind control is when the action of doing something about it will occur. The mind needs to be deprogramed before it can be reprogramed with truth or as this regime well knows it will NOT act if it is trapped in a psychic wedge between self interests, survival, and the alignment of mental beliefs as they can be tollerated by the sub concious and the active mind. This is why propagnda use is now directly aligned with these false mutant believers of nothing but FEAR. That is why they seek control they lack a believe in the self and the obtainment of truth and knowledge and from that stems the entire fraud upon which the world was and is being decieved.

Success my friends is going to depend on your ablity to start working with facts and believing in yourself and stop believing in the convience structures of false religion, false economic system, false governments, and false stories of how terrorist are trying to take down America. The only thing trying to take down American is its own deluded beliefs in money, the stock market, and their own lies that they exhale when they speak them out of their mouths to the people putting their food on their table, shelter over their heads, and clothing on their backs, and the sucking the life out of the earth to promote their psychi beliefs that things like depleted uranium are actually going to help them succeed in destroying the earth and humanity to increase the number of digits to the left of their decimal point. The point of no return.

Conspiracy involving hundreds of news organizations? Mind control? Psychic domination?

Wow. For a government so many describe as inept, I must say, if they really achieved what you claim, then they must be pretty brilliant group after all, especially the grand mastermind George W. Bush!

I don’t mind that the US supports Israel…

Israel itself may be considered a model of peaceful, heterogeneous society, where Jews, Christians and Muslims can live together peacefully while respecting each others’ right to worship, etc. After all, there are more than one million Arab-Israeli citizens who enjoy greater freedom, better social services and higher per-capita income than many of their counterparts living in neighboring countries. Further, Arab men and women living within Israel have a longer life-expectancy than those living in Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan and Libya. The three official languages of Israel are Hebrew, Arabic and English, as evidenced by the writing on its road signs and postage stamps.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting.
