Perpetuating Mistrust

Talk radio loose cannon Michael Savage is advancing a conspiracy that the Boston Police apprehended the real bomber and The Obama loyalists in the FBI swooped in and sent the perpetrator on a one way flight to Saudi Arabia. For those of you who don't listen to talk radio, this is a departure from the norm, even for Michael Savage. He is after all, one of the top five most-listened to radio hosts. This isn't Alex Jones or Clyde Lewis. Savage has millions of listeners.

I generally don't find Savage amusing but I'll scan the dial when John Batchelor and Dan Rea and Jerry Doyle all go to commercial and I can't pick up Clyde Lewis. And Savage was advancing his conspiracy idea. Savage is to be taken with a grain of salt but he is a weather vane. He is in tune to the paranoia of the day.

Not surprisingly I blame the paranoia on the Mainstream News Media. They have generated widespread mistrust by allowing Obama to lie with impunity. From the three dozen ignored inaccuracies in Obama's autobiography to his $250 million dollar false witness smear of Mitt Romney to the motive for the Benghazi attack to the effects of the sequester to the most recent fibs about his budget cutting the deficit....Americans have never been lied to so frequently or so boldly.

And of course, the news media will not call Obama on his lies. The result is that no one believes anything anymore. Everything is a scam. Everything is a conspiracy. Drink the Kool-Aid and lose your mind to sedation or fight the power and lose your mind to the drip drip drip of deception.

I understand, Michael. I understand.

Of course when Obama suddenly meets with the Saudi ambassador and it's reported that the suspect in question is being deported it doesn't look good. The FBI schedules a press conference, postpones it and eventually cancels it. My own thinking is it is about to fuck up the gang of eight's much touted "reform" when it becomes obvious that getting rid of would be terrorists is going to be hard when they have de facto amnesty.

Even if the workplace violence practitioners turn out to be homegrown, their ideology is foreign to most of us. I do not see how this can possibly help the Gang of 8's agenda. Tom Tancredo should get back in the game.
