It is of the utmost importance to remember that if you reject the MSM sources you use good judgment on your alternate news sources as well, because as
much as the MSM abuses your intelligence, some of the others would seek to abuse you as well.
Couldn't have said it better myself.
Here is a perfect example:
As reported by News One, for "Black America." Visible in its complete form at:
FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. — A grateful President Obama yesterday shook the hand of the Navy SEAL who shot and killed terror nemesis Osama bin Laden.
At Fort Campbell, one of the nation’s largest military bases, Obama met privately yesterday with members of the assault force that carried
out the mission to get bin Laden, thanking each one individually for their “heroic and selfless service” to the country. Obama then
awarded the SEAL teams the “Presidential Unit Citation” — the highest honor a unit can get, in recognition of their “extraordinary service and
How stupid do they think we are?
Maybe Im not asking the right question. Maybe I should really be asking, How stupid are we?
Anyone with a functioning pair of eyes and a smidgen of military knowledge should instantly be able to call "bull#" on this photo op. First, The
gentleman the president is extending his hand to is a soldier in the US ARMY, wearing the standard Army Combat Uniform and Black Beret. The Army
adopted the black beret Effective 14 June 2001. www.army.mil...
The Unit Insignia on the gentleman's right shoulder is the "screaming eagle" of the 101st Airborne. The placement of the insignia, [combat
veterans are authorized permanent wear of the SSI of the unit they fought with on their right shoulder]. recognizes "former wartime service" and is
frequently called a "combat patch".
"At Fort Campbell, one of the nation’s largest military bases, Obama met privately yesterday with members of the assault force that carried out the
mission to get bin Laden, thanking each one individually for their “heroic and selfless service” to the country."
How private is it if there is a press photographer there? - Wait, never mind. I get confused sometimes when the propaganda machine uses the term
"private" in an unabashed attempt for good "publicity" and higher "approval ratings".
The gentleman obscured from view behind the president is a Lieutenant General in the United States Marine Corps. Possibly John Allen.
As I have stated before, any public congratulation or "atta-boy" for the alleged "executors" of the "second" death of Osama Bin Laden, would
violate operational security and put the "executors" at risk for retaliation. It isn't done, it is not "transparency", it would be "burning"
Now, maybe this is just another example of "Shoddy" Journalism, like all the "photo shopped" Reuters and UPI images that hit all the major
newspapers during the gulf war(s), or the "photo shopped" Bin Laden corpse photos that went out before the announcement hit the airwaves. But then I
have to consider the "photo shopped" certification of live birth and the "Illustrator" created long form birth certificate posted on the official
White House web site.
Prudence dictates, that in the face of overwhelming evidence (no matter how much we wish to disbelieve) Facts are facts, motives are motives, and lies
Once, a long time ago, I was given some profound wisdom by an Army Lieutenant Colonel, who was my Senior Army Instructor in High School ROTC. I
didn't like him very much, but his logic was sound.
If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, waddles like a duck, swims like a duck, and has webbed feet - Its probably a duck.

The odds of this being a simple "alternative media" error decline sharply with every false statement. Every changed story; every counterfeit,
retouched, or digitally created image released by this administration is another nail in the coffin for America.
If we keep allowing ourselves to be deceived, or allow these deceptions to continue, there wont be an America left anymore. We must hold our elected
officials accountable for their actions. They are elected to serve us, not rule us.
Wake up. Rise up, and say "NO."
Otherwise, in the words of Ronald Reagan:
"One day, we will find ourselves in our sunset years, telling our children and our children's children, what it was once like in the United
States... when men were free."
