Ignorance is Bliss; Until You Are
Incinerated in a Nuclear Exchange

The purpose of corporate “news” media is to
dull your mind and insure you are sufficiently dumbed down and
distracted from the real issues, by feeding you pointless irrelevant
social trivia. As long as you are distracted, you are unable to
organize, get involved, or seek change, which is exactly what
corporate media wants, and is exactly where they have you. Don’t
think so? Answer the following questions:
We have been at war in Afghanistan for over 13 years; why? What are
we fighting for? Who are we fighting? Where is Afghanistan and why
can’t most Americans even find it on a map after 13 years of war?
How about Iraq? Most Americans cannot find Iraq on a world map, can
you? How long have we been at war in Iraq? Why are we at war in
Iraq? Who are we fighting in Iraq? What do they want? What do we
How about Syria? Who are we fighting? Where is Syria on a map? Who
or what is ISIS? What do they want? Are we with or against Assad?
Why are we helping Al-Qaeda?
Let’s look at Libya? Why did we bomb it daily for seven consecutive
months? Where is Libya on a map? Why did we support Muammar al-
Quadafi, then help kill him? What has happened to Libya after we
bombed them to save them?
How about Egypt? Who is the current dictator of Egypt and why do we
support a dictator? How do we support him?
How about Russia? Most Americans do not have a clue that we are now
very close to a war with Russia, but then again most folks never saw
World War I coming either. Why do we now have troops in the all the
Baltic States on the border with Russia? Why are we installing
missiles on Russia’s border? Where is the Ukraine in relationship to
the US? Where is the Ukraine in relationship to Russia? How many
military bases does Russia have outside Russia? How many military
bases does the US have outside of its borders? What was the
Kennedy’s reaction when he found out that Russia had installed
missiles in Cuba? Why is the US having “war games” less than one
mile from the Russian border? How many foreign nations has Russia
invaded since the end of WWII? How many nations has the US invaded
or bombed since the end of WWII? Why does corporate media depict
Russia as militarily aggressive?
Why did the US spend 5 billion dollars promoting unrest an
orchestrating a coup against a democratically elected government in
the Ukraine? Why did the foul mouthed neocon US ambassador, Victoria
Nuland say, and what did she mean, when she so eloquently said:
“F... the EU”?
How about China? Where is the South China Sea in relationship to
both China and the US? Why is the US establishing missiles and a
military base in Australia? Where is Australia in relationship to
China? Why has the US flown provocative flights very near Chinese
claimed Islands in the South China Sea?
Yemen. Where is it? Why are we helping the most brutal dictatorship
in the world, Saudi Arabia, bomb Yemen into annihilation?
And finally folks, one last serous question. What is wrong with a
nation that has been at war through 93% of its history?
OK, so you are not a genius and you may not be able to answer all of
the above questions, so try this on. When was the last time you
heard any serious discussion of one of these issues by corporate
news media outlets? OK perhaps I am a bit harsh, so let’s get to
what you do know because of corporate news media. Most Americans
know all about, over and underinflated footballs. Most Americans
know just about all there is to know about the Kardashians and the
Bruce Jenner saga. Think about the pablum you are being fed and the
great questions that are being avoided by corporate media.
www.InformationClearinghouse.info may not broaden your
knowledge of properly inflated footballs and the Kardashians, but it
will help you to understand that neocon idiots are bringing us to
the brink of a nuclear holocaust with Russia and China?
