Truth, lies and conspiracy theories
Dan Miller's Blog ^ | April 13, 2014 | Dan Miller

The Federal Government lies as a matter of policy and habit. Occasionally  "legitimate" media detect and dissect the lies, but they more often simply report them as true. The resultant "conspiracy theories" are often more believable than the Government lies which spawned them.

From Benghazi to ObamaCare to the Israel - Palestinian "peace process" to the Iran Scam to the Bundy Ranch standoff and beyond, "our" Government has lied to us repeatedly and there have been no signs that it intends to stop or even to slow down. The lies have rarely been for legitimate national security reasons and have far more often been to promote the political security of the party in power. This from the "most transparent" administration in history:

Was there even a scintilla of candor in President Obama's remarks about the transparency of His administration? More recently, was there a scintilla of candor in His administration's remarks that the need to preserve desert tortoises required Bureau of Land Management (BLM) actions on the Bundy Ranch? It soon developed that the BLM had several years earlier euthanized many of the same species of "endangered" tortoises because there were too many of them.

Eventually, some relatively old but at best lightly reported news surfaced and "went viral" on the internet. It was about relationships of Senator Harry Reid (D. NV.) with the BLM and those of his son with a Chinese solar entrepreneur -- who is alleged to have had arrangements to get the land where Mr. Bundy's cattle had long grazed for a massive solar energy installation. According to a post at Alex Jones' Infowars,

The federal government backed down and ended their siege against Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy less than 24 hours after an Infowars exposé connecting the land grab to Harry Reid and a Chinese-backed solar farm went viral, becoming the biggest news story on the Internet.

I generally regard Mr. Jones as a conspiracy theorist. However, when the Government spews lies and then tries to cover up its lies with the connivance of the "legitimate" media, we have to rely on conservative blogs for credible information. In some cases, we also have little choice but to rely on conspiracy theories. Then, even facially credible conspiracy theories become more believable than Government propaganda. That may be unfortunate if, occasionally, the Government tells the truth about important matters and few believe what it says.

Do we all "belong to the Government" to the extent that we have to believe its propaganda?

Would most who enjoy "belonging" to the Government feel that way about belonging to a family, co-op or criminal gang that badgered them with lies as consistently as has the Government administered by the Obama Administration? That seems unlikely.

No way was this to save the tortoise habitat. I vote for Bundy for environmentalist of the year award.

Is there any recoverable oil/natural gas laying under BLM land in Nevada? Just curious...Is anything open for lease in that area?

Sounds like pigs being murdered, to me.

Besides Reid’s land grabbing for the Chinese, there is a lot of talk about underground water that could be a financial bonanza. Not sure about fossil fuel.

I have killed a lot of pigs. But I’ve never murdered one so I guess I don’t know how that sounds. So I will take your word for it. ;-)

FWIW murder is the only thing moslems know how to do.

I have my own memories. With pics .

FINISH: http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee19/bigheadfred_111/pig2008006-1.jpg

Actually a couple of dads pigs got over into the neighbors peas and oats field. I sneaked up behind one (crawling) and grabbed her by the back leg. She screamed like she was being murdered.

The “murdered” reference was just about the squealing. I’ve been thru the ‘start’ - ‘finish’ sequence, too, and after all the mess, it’s a good BBQ.

Amazing how many libtards think meat just ‘grows’ in plastic packages in the meat dept’s shelves. LOL.

From what I've heard, there is, but it's 300 miles north of Mr. Bundy's grazing land. So that's not a factor at all.
