Mike, Norwalk

An astute in the obvious observation, proven over and over again throughout history. Welcome to Amerika, where the patrons of the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land are such hard core advocates of Adolf Hitlers If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.

Walter Clark, Fullerton CA

And not just those with absolute power, but those with the ear of the public can make their mistakes look like vindication. Unexpected results can be spun as a reinterpretation of their original proposal or a reason to expect their predictions to be delayed some.

Ever notice when environmentalists predict the end of the world, it's always in 50 years or and they won't be around to see that it hasn't happened.

E Archer, NYC

From false flags to social- and geo-engineering -- self-fulfilling prophesies of gloom and doom. The State is always creating 'problems' to solve which coincidentally enrich the 'powers-that-be' even further.

So true, Archer, the same as Hitler did ! Same old play just different players.
