Who Says We’re Not In Kansas Anymore?

December 13, 2009

Yeah, yeah, yeah…more political BS! But folks, it’s winter. There is no longer a garden to worry about. There is so much dead wood around here that it simply isn’t very interesting writing about collecting it all, from kindling to tree stumps, about cutting it all up with a chain saw, and as far as I’m concerned, one chain saw brand is as good as another. I think we use a Poulon…but I’m sure other brands are fine, as well. And do you really expect me to write an article about what to buy for Christmas? Don’t ask. Buy what you think you might need for the proverbial “sh*t hits the fan” scenario, whether it happens or not. Or gold and silver. Or food. Or chickens. I think I will leave that up to the reader.

Anyway, I was going to post about how the alternative media might not be much better than the MSM, about how the alternative sites, especially the news aggregators, have more truth to tell, but can also sew confusion by issuing contradictory stories and opinion disguided as “news.” Seems these news aggregators, as with most Americans at large, fail to distinguish between “fact” and “opinion,” something English teachers nationwide constantly complain about. But then the item below came across my radar…folks, this sort of reporting is getting serious–Obama might be preparing for some sort of “revolution” scenario–because it is now being reported “overseas”, for instance, in the European Union Times, which appears to be linked to American “patriot” sites such as “American Free Press” (formerly the “Spotlight,” meaning it is probably as infiltrated as the Spotlight was), meaning the “EUTimes” may have little to actually do with Europe. Also there are links to sites that look neo-nazi. And to think, as far as I’ve seen, it all started with the alternative media person I most love to diss, Alex Jones.

Jones had posted on one of his sites, this item about a radio interview featuring Greg Everson of “Heartland USA,” who just happens to be a former law enforcement operative from Kansas (hence the title), about Obama getting US troops within the country, as well as intel operators and law enforcement, prepared for civil unrest. Everson has a link to this interview on his site here, and I first saw the actual article on the DProgram site about some quasi-military martial law exercise that is supposedly in the works. This was the original article that Jones posted, and in a comment at DProgram it was stated that Jones posted the article, but one hour later, took it down. (It was upon learning this that my BS detector turned on.) Thus, the link at the beginning of the paragraph won’t work. See the DProgram link.
