In the following video, Alex Jones takes the TSA to task for its pathological lying about the danger of naked body porno scanners. But as Jones notes, it is not simply the TSA that continually lies. The entire government is perpetually and habitually involved in all kinds of lies and fabrications – from George Bush’s deadly lie about WMDs in Iraq (that cost over a million Iraqis their lives) to countless sundry lies on all kinds of government activity (most recently the lies told to us about the government’s gun running operation to the banker drug cartels in Mexico).
In the video, Alex breaks down the lie told by government and its compliant corporate media propaganda tool about the outrageous and unconstitutional detainment of Kentucky Senator Rand Paul at the airport in Nashville.
The cops in Tennessee insisted Paul was “irate” about his illegal detainment, but a security video later released shows the Senator sitting calmly in a chair waiting for the TSA and the cops to let him travel. Of course, after insisting Paul was angry and uncooperative, the corporate media lie machine did not bother to pick up on the story published by The Tennessean.
Government – from the local cop shop and city council to Congress and the president – habitually lie. Government lies are about as dependable as the sun coming up in the morning.
History is sickeningly replete with all kinds of instances of government lying to the American people and the world at large.
President Woodrow Wilson lied us into World War One (35 million people slaughtered), the North Vietnamese didn’t attack the U.S. military in the Gulf of Tonkin (the Vietnam War: around 4 million killed), the Teflon presidentReagan knew about about Iran-Contra, Bush Senior lied about no new taxes, Bill Clinton lied about not inhaling andhaving sex with that woman, Nixon was indeed a crook, the government lied when it said children were molested at the Branch Davidian complex in Waco (and thus proceeded to barbeque them), Bush and his neocon cronies lied about the Taliban harboring Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein’s nuclear and chemical weapons programs, the passengers of Flight 93 overtook box-cutter terrorists, and fire brought down WTC 1, 2and 7.
There are more lies told by the government as it conducts its sordid criminal business. It would take a book the size of the New York Metro White Pages to tell them all. I am exaggerating… but not much.
