The House Of Cards

“All I want to say is that, They don’t really care about us” Michael Jackson

I was looking into the sinking of the infamous Lusitania. I have been trying to verify certain information I was given about it. I have learned for certain that the official story was a lie. 

House of Cards photoI believe that it is an indisputable fact that the Lusitania was carrying massive amounts of ammunition. This truth has been revealed by divers investigating the wreck of the ship. What this means is that the government lied about the official story. That as a ship carrying ammunition the attack on it by the Germans was within the rules of engagement as it was carrying the cargo to Germany’s foes. So it was based upon a lie that the United States entered World War 1. While this news may not seem shocking now, what if 911, which has launched numerous wars was also a lie? Time has softened the former lie but how would you feel if you were deceived about the latter?

I want to talk about the assassination of the Saudi Arabian Khashoggi. After the CIA reported that the crown prince of Saudia Arabia was personally involved the United States Senate has just voted to cut military funding for the kingdom’s war with Yemen. I find it quite remarkable that the Senate was fine with eleven million citizens of Yemen starving to death in famine but are in an uproar over the death of one man. Seems like something is going on behind the scenes here.

Of course, President Trump refuses to believe the evidence of the CIA. In all honesty, I can’t blame the man, after all the horrid spy agency were the same people who told us that Sadam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. Also, the CIA is perhaps the most ruthless group of thugs ever to exist. It seems all too convenient that they know without a doubt what happened. It seems to me that the United States is being manipulated again for the desires of the ‘deep state.’

In case you missed it the  Gulf of Tonkin incident has been updated as well, it has never occurred. Meanwhile, Isreal’s attack on the U.S.S. Liberty is still being suppressed.

I want to shift gears by sharing a real-life story of mine. I was working for an engineering company and I was assigned to supervise the drillers extracting borings. I was new to the job and at the same time, the dosage of my psychotropic medicine got messed up. Anyway, I was told all sorts of horror stories about the drillers. When I started working I found the drillers to be extremely nice and helpful. Unfortunately, after a couple of weeks, my boss and the owner of the company called me into their office. I was told that the drillers were cheating me. I got extremely angry which was magnified by being in a semi-manic state. In a rage, I told the driller my mind and to my shame, my language was fluid with curses. After my tantrum, the driller explained that my boss and the owner of the engineering company was lying and that I could verify the truth by looking at older records. I did and found out that the driller was indeed correct. I was lied to by my coworkers who had worked with me for seven years. When I confronted the liars they dismissed it. A couple days later I cursed out both my boss and the owner which ended my stay with the engineering company. A lesson learned.

I would like to trust people and I would like to trust the government. Unfortunately, we cannot. I am a trusting person to the point where I am gullible. But time and experience have taught me not to make hasty decisions especially when I can’t verify the facts. I guess in the long run cursing out a driller on a lie isn’t the worst thing in the world. But our nation going to war and killing hundreds of thousands of people is. Like the owner of the engineering company and my boss as the government, they have proved over time to be dishonorable.

Part of my mental illness was caused by coming to terms with lies I had learned in life and discovering the falsehoods of the truths I had been taught. I found society, the government, and my religion all to be one gigantic lie. It was disheartening at best. My life had been a house of cards and when it collapsed the fall was great.

I will never trust those two individuals who deceived me.  Happily, they are out of my life and I am glad that my job ended as I couldn’t work for people who deserve no respect. They are forever in my eyes branded as liars. Making mistakes is all part of being human, but not making the same mistakes twice is being wise.
