Shiny Ball?!

So, let's see if we can get this all straight in our heads. Real stories such as the deliberate release by General Betray-us of over 400 Taliban fighters in a charade prison "break" where the prisoners were given keys to their cells by their CIA masters and somehow ground penetrating radar missed a 1500 yard tunnel out of the prison—this story you didn't see.

Gates is out as secretary of defence and CIA scum bag Leon Panetta is in, which moves Betray-us out of controlling Afghanistan—a war that ought to have been wound down in some sort of peace with honour strategy six years ago—and into the CIA (if, and only if the fully militarised USA senate gives Obama everything he wants). And some other military goof goes out to Afghanistan to sit idly by while dozens and dozens of American soldiers, marines, and airmen (and women) are slaughtered year after year after year. All for the sake of permanent war for permanent profit (service mark Ronin David Neilson 2010).

Bradley Manning, torture victim, badly treated whistle-blower, American hero, has been moved from the torture chambers at Quantico to Leavenworth Kansas. Meanwhile President Obama has declared him guilty in order to use command influence to deny any possibility of a fair trial.

During all this the USA dollar continues to crater as Ben Bernanke continues to obfuscate about the facts. Rather than turning on M3 Money Supply or L—a broader measure of liquidity—dark since 2006 and 1998 respectively in an effort to increase transparency, Bernanke reads badly worded lies in an unconvincing tone to press reporters ill equipped to understand economics, let alone question him. Gold and silver, which have been losing ground for two and a half trading days make a turnaround during his speech, with gold sky-rocketing to new all time highs, silver leaping up $3 an ounce to well above $48.

And during all these significant events, while Americans line up for food stamps, while Britons are dismissed from their jobs, while slaughter and pillage takes place in Syria, Libya, Yemen, Afghanistan, and Iraq—what are the news stories being built up by the media with help from blowhards like Donald Trump and some prince twit of the Hanoverian usurpation?

SHINY BALL! Look shiny ball! See shiny ball! See?! Wait, where shiny ball? WHERE!!!???

Yes, the top story in the USA is that the president of the United States might have been born in Hawai'i after it was forcibly annexed and made into a state, and there seems to be a completely valid, embossed, signed, sealed birth certificate. Admittedly, Alex Jones and other weird news outlets continue to report on "issues" such as the fact that the doctor who signed the certificate died eight years ago at age 81. Apparently it is shocking, shocking I tell you, for any supporters of socialised medicine under Medicare that a mere octogenarian died of old age in the early 21st Century. Or was it... dun dun DUN .... murder?! /overly dramatic cartoon voice.

And the top story in England, Scotland, and occupied Ireland? Why, the Hanoverian usurpation is having a wedding of some prince to some commoner. Kate apparently has nightmares of being naked at her "royal" wedding, which are presumably submerged memories of her hazing rituals deep in the bowels of Buckingham palace. Can someone play "here comes the bride" and snap her out of it?

Are you people fucking kidding me? Is this pre-digested pap supposed to pass for news and information? Have you considered throwing your television out the window, or putting a few bullets in it?
