What in the World has Happened to the American People?

Like others in my generation, I remember proudly the response of the American people to the war in Vietnam. I remember the marches, the sit-ins, the protests. I remember the small Midwestern liberal arts college I first attended deciding to shut itself down as its students readied to pour into the nation’s capital and I remember being tear gassed in Berkeley.

Vietnam pales in magnitude when compared with the military actions launched by the US since the turn of the century. Since 2000, US troops have fought in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Syria.

War, no longer an anomaly, has become common fare.

The virulence of the US government is increasingly evident towards its own people. In certain arenas, and against certain kinds of people, the US has become brutally aggressive against its own citizens.

The response by the people of the United States to its continuing incursions abroad has been colorless, to say the least. No schools shut down, no massive mobilizations on Washington, no general strikes. As far as the domestic violence goes, the response is equally bland. One might posit that the people of the US have become accustomed to their bellicose government.

In light of the history of protest, how does one account for the muted response of the American people?

The Drugging of America

For one, Americans are being drugged silly. Per capita, the US population consumes an astounding number of psychiatric medications. A 2011 Medco Health Solutions report stated that one in five Americans takes at least one psychiatric drug.

According to an IMS Health Vector One report, a grand total of 78,694,222 Americans were consuming at least one type of psychiatric medication in 2013.

    “IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO AWAKEN MAJARITIES “Ex Machina”, WHO ARE ONLY PRETENDING TO BE ASLEEP” “$90 billion $90 billion $90 billion”

    If you think closely, suddenly all these false flag operations took place after Russia have started to move in to the game of Syria,,, then sudden attack in Paris recently to what happened in southern California, and now involvement of British air force, France air force, Turkey air force, and now Germany airforce all heading to Syria in past few days.

    I believe by truly observing the history, one must understand how this game plays by now. It is the same old story for the past hundred years but now it is at the last chapter .

    Also remember 911 ?
    The hijackers in the September 11 attacks were 19 men affiliated with al-Qaeda. 15 of the 19 were citizens of Saudi Arabia.
    2 from the United Arab Emirates
    1 from Egypt.

    September 8, 2015 “There are 5 US military bases in Saudi Arabia”.
    Since October 2010, Congress has been notified of proposed sales to Saudi Arabia of fighter aircraft, helicopters, missile defense systems, missiles, bombs, armored vehicles, and related equipment and services, with a potential value of more than $90 billion.

    There were two kinds of slaves, the house Negro and the field Negro.
    So you have two types of Negro. The old type and the new type. Most of you know the old type. When you read about him in history during slavery he was called “Uncle Tom.” He was the house Negro. And during slavery you had two Negroes. You had the house Negro and the field Negro.

    The house Negro usually lived close to his master. He dressed like his master. He wore his master’s second-hand clothes. He ate food that his master left on the table. And he lived in his master’s house–probably in the basement or the attic–but he still lived in the master’s house.

    This is the one documentary among thousands, but I wanted you to watch this one all the way to the end, if you have the time. Take breaks while watching it. It is long, but not longer than Hollywood movies people watch all day long.

    Six Jewish Companies Control 96% of the World’s Media???

    Example of Jewish media goes back to almost 40 years ago;
    Shah of Iran & Mike Wallace on the Jewish Lobby
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6kySR3fpa5s

    In an article published on Monday in the Norwegian magazine “Humanist,” professor Johan Galtung, founder of the academic discipline of “peace and conflict studies” and an “Alternative Nobel Prize” laureate, lashed out against what he claims to be the “Jewish control” over mass media.
