Your government failed you, again

Richard Clarke appears on The Daily Show to promote his new book “Your Government Failed You”. But before they talk about that, Jon Stewart quotes the Bush administration’s response to Clarke’s previous book “Against All Enemies” from March 22, 2004:

Well, why, all of a sudden, if he had all these grave concerns, did he not raise these sooner? This is one-and-a-half years after he left the administration. And now, all of a sudden, he’s raising these grave concerns that he claims he had. And I think you have to look at some of the facts. One, he is bringing this up in the heat of a presidential campaign. He has written a book and he certainly wants to go out there and promote that book.”

What makes this deliciously ironic is that the speaker is none other than Scott McClellan (when he was still the Press Secretary). Who, as you all know, has now come out with his own tell-all book critical of the Bush Administration and (as icing on the cake) has gotten almost exactly the same response from the Bush Administration to his book.

    Common sense is what the current executive administration seems to lack but makes up for it in national bankrupting policies in addition to “Homeland Security” which reminds me of the WWII era Germany’s reference to their country aka “Fatherland”

    If a nation expects to be free and ignorant it expects what never was and what never will be. Since the media being controlled as corporations they have their agendas regardless of what they say. The Rothschilds family knew that a nation can be controlled by 2 main ways economically and through mainstream media.

    Well Bush Jr. sent out “economic stimulus checks” thats supposed to help the economy. Well its only a bandaid, a temporary fix that further bankrupts this country for our children to suffer.

    As far as media controling people and know i’m not talking mind control just by guiding public opinion through the bullshit they spew out daily. Prove me wrong every time i see the news its doom and gloom and well that would get most week minded people thinking on the same level and only complain about it. So, gas prices are hire then previous years and it will go up with demand as a decreasing supply. Quit complaining about it and bring more home then you are spending its that simple.

    Oh and don’t just religiously look at only FOX, CNN, ABC ect… Why not check out BBC and other forign news outlets who are not influenced by U.S. internal government opinoin.
