[This is the addended transcript of my regular KVMR commentary broadcast on 19 September 2014.]
Are we in information overload? It’s hard to think back to a time when Americans have been in such deep denial about so many things going on in the world – both here and abroad. When I begin to think about the laundry list of current happenings, it seems never ending. Let’s just illustrate a few of the major items to which we seem to pay no mind.
The campaign for ever more legislation to stop manmade global warming has always ignored the science involved, and in the last years has ignored and misrepresented hard data about actual things we can see and measure – things like global temperature which has been flat or falling during the last 15 plus years, the extent of polar ice caps which have never been bigger, new low temperature records and early snows, fewer extreme weather events like hurricanes and tornadoes, no catastrophic sea level rises, and the list goes on. But our government controllers deny all this and are going forward at state and federal levels as if we had a proven climate emergency that needs more draconian legislation and regulation, right now. We keep hearing ‘the debate is over’; that just is not so.
All over the world the United States has become a paper tiger in the eyes of radical Islam which is now comprised of multiple militia groups spread over vast regions of the Middle East and Africa, and stronger than ever. One group has even beaten standing armies in two countries, and now rules over 8M people. They execute our innocents with impunity and vow to raise their flag over our capitals. And in this war between civilizations we are still playing around with semantics trying to figure out whether to call a war a war. But it really doesn’t matter. Because after our leader told us we didn’t have a strategy to deal with the situation, he decided come up with a strategy and make a big deal announcing it, which only confirmed that we really don’t have a strategy, but are instead engaged in a desperate pitch to cobble a coalition of reluctant ‘allies’ who really don’t care how the borders in the Middle East are redrawn.
And all the while we are told that our southern border has never been more secure, while data from Homeland Security and the Border Patrol tell us exactly the opposite, as they report illegal aliens now entering our homeland from over a hundred countries, including many from terrorist groups here to begin a new wave of attacks. As many of our border regions have now become no-man’s land where even the Border Patrol dare not go, we are told that everything is secure down Mexico way.
