“Just because you’re paranoid don’t mean they’re not after you.” – Joseph Heller, Catch-22
I had been writing for about a year (manly about Christian-themed music) when earlier this year, a friend gave me a contact for The Western Center for Journalism. A few weeks later, the news of Dr. Ben Carson’s prayer breakfast speech was the inspiration for my first submission. I had nailed it!
As I proceeded the cycle of write and submit, I was astounded by some of the stories that had flashed before my eyes (courtesy of WJ and other conservative watchdogs).
Obama this, Obama that, Soros this, Brennan that….
I knew this country had problems (it was the Benghazi episode as well as the past presidential election that compelled me to get into political writing in the first place), but I had no idea the level of shocking claims that had been circulating over the past few years. Like most Conservatives, I feared the ever increasing moral decay, religious eradication, and political deceit perpetuated over the past five years – but some of the stories I was reading were a little too much to stomach…..
Ironically, as I continued my reading and research, the scandals were beginning to break like wild fire.
IRS this! NSA that!
All our phones are being tapped…indiscriminately, as ‘political dissidents’ who promote Jesus and Liberty are swiftly making a ‘watch list’ (and quite possibly a ‘FEMA Camp’ in the near future.)
But these stories don’t even scratch the surface…..
Is there anyone in government who isn’t being blackmailed, controlled, or threatened? Hold everything, I thought to myself; the media ain’t covering half of this, not even Fox, not even Hannity. Meanwhile, I’m getting bounced off Facebook and other Conservative sites left and right…..
Wait a second; is my Internet usage being monitored?
Paranoia or Truth? Maybe a bit of both?
But in a world where even the Jesus narrative is considered ‘urban legend,’ who knows what truth is? And who even cares to know? It seems most of the country is too busy with ‘Reality TV’ (as ironic as that may be!)
So, I’m not sure what or who to believe anymore. And, unfortunately, even the few true bipartisan journalists we have left, like Sharyl Attkisson, have been stonewalled.
I even found myself reassessing the ‘original’ 9/11 tragedy and now am left to wonder if we know the whole truth.
After just some preliminary research, I’m forced to conclude that Flight 97 must have been blown out of the sky or something; and I even wonder if there was a Flight 77. It’s really bizarre the lack of video (and corroborating evidence overall) released to the public.
Now I’d like to trust my government! If Flight 97 was headed for Camp David, for example, I understand the possibility of a preemptive measure needing to be taken. But sometimes it’s hard to tell who the good guys and who the bad guys are. I’m not sure there are many good guys left in government.
Is truth simply stranger than fiction? Or are we all just being willfully deceived?
Agenda 21, NWO, Zionism, Illuminati, Osama Bin Ladin, Free Masons, Communism, Fascism, Martial-Law, Mind Control, Media Manipulations, Child Indoctrinations, Hollywood, Drones, New Ageism, Big Pharma, Sharia Law, Secret Societies, Artificial Food Modifications, Global Warming, The Occult, Vaccinations, The Federal Reserve, Materialism, LGBT, CIA, Human Cloning, Oprah……
It’s a scary new world we are headed towards.
Question Everything ~ Believe Nothing ? I’m a skeptic myself….
Whatever the case, I know where I’m placing my faith †
