I’ve been at the “new age” game for a long time now. You can label it how you see fit; it’s an interest in the paranormal, conspiracy “theory”, those things that go bump in the night, or steal steak knives from your drawer when you’re not looking. After all this time I’ve developed a pretty good bullshit detector, and it’s because I’ve learned the hard way. I’ve been suckered and duped plenty of times by charlatans and nutters, but now know better.
The late great comedian George Carlin once said…
You can’t be afraid of words that speak the truth, even if it’s an unpleasant truth, like the fact that their is a bigot and a racist in every living room, and every street corner of this country.
I couldn’t agree with him more.
This is the same stand up routine where he described how the stress of battle during World War I was effectively labeled SHELL SHOCK, and how in every subsequent generation the description had been neutered to appear softer and more politically correct.
I had a little bird,Its name was Enza.
I opened the window, and in-flu-enza.
I’ve attempted to follow the Ebola news, and offer something novel here on the monkey page, but there are too many rumors, and not enough truth. We now know Thomas Eric Duncan died from Ebola on Wednesday. We also know that Teresa Romero Ramos from Spain is the first person outside of Africa to contract the virus, and she was left to sit in the ER for hours even after she tested positive.
The following video has been declared a hoax by many, but nevertheless here it is for you to decide.
I’m sure you’ve heard by now the CDC has confirmed the first case of Ebola in the Dallas Fort-worth area. It was only a matter of time before this happened, especially the careless way the Obama administration has been dealt with the outbreak in Africa, and the safety of the continental United States. They have been playing with fire, and at times appears as though they wanted someone to bring the virus back. Don’t forget infected patients were brought back to the United States earlier when the outbreak was first making traction in the main stream media.
I know what you’re thinking, the monkey has lost his mind. One too many posts about Syria, and now he has a picture of the moon with the famous line uttered by the crazy old wizard from the Jundland Wastes. As always, let’s get a few things out of the way first.
We’re one day into the US bombing of ISIS, and there is not much to tell other than what can be gathered from today’s headlines. It appears this is going to be a long bombing campaign, and for the most part world condemnation has been very tame, even from Russian.
Reportedly Syria was not warned by the US prior to the airstrikes, but that really should come as no surprise.
I think we need to take a step back here for a moment, and look at what’s going on. I realize there are many in the United States whom are very Gung ho about the bombings. The far right republican on the street is even backing Obama on this one. I understand. They feel it’s the “right” thing to do. These ISIS fellows are more demons than men anyway, and after all we’re the good guys, and the good guys should bomb and destroy the bad guys. It makes us feel all warm and cozy on the inside. The world makes sense. Ahhhh…
Good morning from somewhere in the USA. Last night American and coalition forces began a bombing campaign focused in the northern part of Syria against ISIS targets centered around Ar-Raqqah.
It may appear I’m being sensational with the Obama/Baphomet photo as my featured image, but my question remains a good one. There was much confusion in conspiracy land as to why most main stream media outlets ran with the ‘Obama Horn’ photo as their thumbnail to advertise his ISIS strategy speech.
Message boards and YouTube videos claimed the photo was “photo shopped”, and some even claimed a green screen was used because the background didn’t appear to match up with the video. After further analysis, the photo was indeed taken from the President’s speech on 9/10. In order to get the “horns” into view behind his head, the shot from the cameraman must have a came in at a very low angle. Continue reading Why did the media use the Obama horn photo?
