It's that this was hardly a newsworthy item. I mean really, Sheen challenges Obama. Come on. This may seem like some big deal to ATS'ers , but it ain't in the real world. Who cares about Alex Jones ? Ct fans, thats about it.
Jones is about as important as a TV evangelist, as believable as a WWF match.
Get some perspective.
NAIS Supporters Fighting Dirty
Since it is apparent that some of you think our government agencies are above board, let me share a story of my recent experience....
..I purchased vendor space at a recent Horse Expo in my state. The purpose (clearly spelled out to the expo organizers) was three fold: to promote the Hackney Horse, to market my hay (income) and to provide information for horse owners on NAIS. All was fine until my State Dept of Agriculture found out that I would be there as they had purchased vendor space as well. They succeeded in having me banned from the expo because I would be a 'negative influence'!
The ACLU took my case - the first one in the USA involving NAIS - and went after my State Dept of Ag...My State Dept of Ag vehemently denied any wrongdoing. They turfed it all on the shoulders of the expo organizers, claiming that they simply asked that they be moved to another location in the expo away from me.
Technically it should have stopped there,... But the ACLU believed the whole story 'stunk of censorship' and did not buy the State Dept of Ag's excuse. They then had conversations with the expo organizers and a very interesting story emerged in where even names were named from my State Dept of Ag. They informed the expo organizers that I had been at a huge Farm Expo last August (Untrue as I working). They claimed that I harassed people, was rude and obnoxious and had even caused a riot to break out over NAIS! They also stated that they were 'in fear of being on the same grounds' as me for fear that I would cause another riot. Of course the expo organizers made the decision to ban me. Who wouldn't after hearing such a story from a govt agency? My first reaction was to laugh over this absolutely ridiculous 'story' then I really got angry. I was NOT at said Farm Expo but I did know people who attended. NO riot broke out!
My State Dept of Ag also provided the expo organizers with numerous e-mails that I had written about NAIS - going back an entire year. I saw these e-mails from our State Dept of Ag with my own eyes. It was then that I realized they are actually tracking me on the internet.
To make a long story short, the expo organizers were convinced by the ACLU that it was in their best interest to allow me back in.
...The first day I was literally watched like a hawk by the expo organizers. By the end of the first day, the show manager realized that they had been 'had' by our State Dept of Ag. They observed for themselves that ALL I did was provide printed material to those who wished to take it and I answered many, many questions - particularly from people who had been to our State Dept of Ag's Animal ID booth first. The end result was that we were invited back next year!...”
