The Grand Myth: That the American Government Can Protect it’s Citizens at all, from War; Financial Corruption/Disaster; Terrorism; White House Intrusions; and most of all, Ebola!
In the last few weeks, we have seen an elaborate charade of the U.S.G’s stated raison’etre of protecting American citizens here at home, or abroad. The recent incursion of a mental patient who entered into the bowels of the White House residence, in an attempt to threaten POTUS is a metaphor for all the contrived lies across a spectrum of American life. Remember that we the taxpayers have paid for nothing more than massive federal dysfunctional entity including:
▪ the inebriated, promiscuous Secret Service
▪ the dysfunctional military/intelligence complex throwing bombs and drones all over Syria, Iraq and wherever else they feel like causing murder and mayhem
▪ our banking system which had been totally mismanaged by unqualified ‘bankers’ [who had never been functioning bankers]- Bernanke, Geithner and Paulson;
▪ raging epidemic of Ebola, staring in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia and now supposedly here in America
The federal government seems to be descending into a complete FUBAR with every institution being run by incompetent jerks or greedy, cheating thugs. I know that for many of you, I am stating the obvious. I am just completely taken aback by the sheer incompetence of all these federal agencies which profess to have some modicum of professionalism. I can’t remember anything good thats come from a federal agency, institution or office in decades.
I worked with the secret service way back when they were considered competent and professional. I ran the psychiatric back-up wards at St Elizabeth’s Hospital in Washington D. C. for those ‘so-called White House intruders’. There was no question as to when, how or why these individuals were automatically incarcerated in a maximum security ward. That was then. But now, one ostensibly can wander all around the White House without even presenting a ‘clear and imminent’ threat.
Times have changed.
Now our President throws our intelligence community under the bus every time that he might have made a mistake about going or not going to war anywhere and everywhere. When I heard that the present problem with ISIS, ISIL; or even the wars in Iraq/Syria; did not lie within our Commander-in-Chief’s hands but rather was the fault of Generals Michael Flynn [DIA] and James Clapper [DNI], I was incredulous. This type of externalization of blame is equivalent to the marathon runner blaming the quality of his shoes, rather than himself. I do criticize our intelligence community ad hominum but as a citizen and taxpayer that is my right and duty .
However, when POTUS goes out of his way in public and directly implicates Gen James Clapper as the source of POTUS’s lack of strategy, foresight or capacity to engage in an unnecessary wars, I find this type of executive behavior to be completely abhorrent and disgraceful to the Office of the Presidency. Sounds like humpty dumpty is cracking. I can tell you that this type of behavior in any other country would have automatically led to a military coup. I could have told you that any former POTUS who dared to compromise our intelligence services, be they, civilian or military, were automatically eliminated.
So now it seems that our federal government failed us once again. It was all over the news that ebola was raging through Liberia, Sierre Leone and Guinea, all failed states on steroids. Did our big daddy government that spies on all of us, keeps record of our travels and what we buy, did It do anything to protect our shores from a viral invasion? Nope! Doesn’t take a genius to figure out that anyone coming from the infected part of the world should have been quarantined. Does anyone get held accountable for this mega mistake? Didn’t Obama tell American citizens that we have nothing to fear? Oh yeah, he was the same guy that told us ISIS was not a threat. First its not a problem, don’t worry and then its whoops now its a problem (big problem) but its not my fault. We pay these people a lot of money to do their jobs (president, congress, judges, CDC) and we even look the other way when they skim some off the top or from the sides. However, we do expect them to take care of the basics and they are not, on any front.
