Why Do So Many Americans Mistrust Their Own Government?

This is another article about the H1N1 Swine Flu virus. It isn’t an article about who made it or whether or not the New World Order is trying to kill off 90% of the Earth’s human population by either the virus or the vaccination. There are countless articles about that on countless web pages in almost every nation on Earth. The best known is the information being put out by Alex Jones’s site “Infowars”. According to an article released by Xinhua News Agency and picked up by infowars, the headline reads All Britons to be vaccinated against A/H1N1 flu .

The first line in the story however reads “All Britons could be vaccinated against the A/H1N1 flu as the number of confirmed cases in Britain is moving closer toward 10,000, health authorities said Sunday”. That is quite a difference from the headline. Maybe it was a mistake or maybe it was an attempt to sensationalize the story in order to draw in more readers. It really didn’t matter anyway; the stories circulating around this particular virus are garnering a lot of attention.

One part of the story on the A/H1N1 flu is that it was manmade. I put “H1N1 virus manmade” into a search engine and came up with hundreds of hits about it. The first thing that comes to mind if you actually believe it is manmade, is why would anyone wish to make it? If you really think about it, there are many reasons, most of them not so good. One theory is that it was inadvertently made while researching the DNA in other viruses. Some theories claim that the people who really control this planet, the New World Order or a reasonable facsimile, actually made it to bring down the population of the planet to a level that could be sustainable. There are many projections that claim the population will be too high to sustain due to the Earth’s dwindling resources in just a few decades.

Whatever one wishes to believe, the facts are that many people really do believe that this particular virus was created to kill off billions of people. There is actually a lawsuit filed by Jane Burgermeister, an investigative reporter. According to Barbara Minton, a reporter for Natural News:

“an Austrian investigative journalist is warning the world that the greatest crime in the history of humanity is underway;. Jane Burgermeister has recently filed criminal charges with the FBI against the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations (UN), and several of the highest ranking government and corporate officials concerning bioterrorism and attempts to commit mass murder”.

There are reasons why many people believe that this conspiracy is true. Vaccines have been widely criticized in the past decade. Besides some of them being ineffective, many are blamed for creating the diseases that they were designed to prevent. They have been blamed for the spectacular rise in autism, especially in the U.S. Many contain high levels of thermisol, a form of mercury. This information, as well as information about vaccines causing autoimmune diseases such as molecular mimicry auto immune multiple sclerosis, autoimmune thrombocytopenic purpurarheumatoid arthritis and autoimmune hemolytic anemia diseases.


While this information is available to the public if one knew where to look, the mainstream media has not reported on many facets of the vaccination debate. This may be one reason why many people become overly suspicious of the medical profession, in the use of vaccines particularly. There is an undercurrent of resentment that many people have because many vaccines that are given to children are required in order to attend school. The information about the safety of vaccines has never been firmly substantiated. In fact, many vaccines have been shown to be useless in preventing some diseases. The lack of any real reporting on this gives one reason to pause when told that their child is required to get them. When the jury is still out regarding whether or not theses vaccines will kill or injure, and possibly destroy a child’s future by inflicting autism, it’s difficult at best to make the proper decision. The MSM doesn’t help the situation by doing less than a stellar job reporting on the problem.

The suspicion that governments are actively seeking to kill their own citizens should actually be beyond belief. None the less, there are many, many people that believe this is actually the case. One only has to read Jane Burgermeister’s lawsuit, or to read the articles on the internet’s alternative media, along with the comments on these articles, to realize that this is actually the case. This begs the question as to why they believe that their own leaders are plotting their own people’s demise.

Perhaps the answer to this very important question can be found in the last 70 years. I can only speculate on America because I am a witness to much of what I’m speculating on. I’m sure that I’ll miss some important points, so feel free to interject your own recollection of what’s happened in the United States. I will try to keep some of the speculation in the order of how these they happened. Excuse me if I don’t get it exactly right.

1. World War Two. Much has been said about FDR’s knowledge of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Maybe we will never know what he knew and when he knew it, but many Americans believe he let the attack happen in order to get us into the war.

2. The Bombing of Dresden, Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Why did we bomb Dresden, an “open city” with no military value on Christmas Eve and Christmas with waves of bombers delivering so much explosive power that it actually melted much of the city? Why did we bomb Hiroshima when the Japanese were on the ropes and then bomb Nagasaki, another city with limited military value only days after the first a-bomb? More than half a century of the U.S. insisting it will never be the nation of “first-use” nuclear weapons rings somewhat hollow. In the last ten years the U.S. has refused to take first use of nuclear weapons “off the table”. Something most people knew anyway.

3. The Korean War. 36,940 American troops and somewhere in the neighborhood of two million military and civilian casualties in a war that ended in just about the same place it began. On top of all the dead from WWII just a short time earlier, the war didn’t do much to restore faith in the belief that humans are basically good.

4. CIA involvement in scores of coups against governments we disagree with. From Central and South America , to the Middle-East and Asia, Americans and their allies overthrew governments that refused to support U.S. positions. Thousands died as the result ofsuch covert operations.

5. The Bay of Pigs, Cuba and the Kennedy Assassinations. Questions still linger about CIA involvement in JFK’s and RFK’s deaths. Cuba still suffers under a U.S. embargo.

6. The Vietnam Era. 58,000 American military and millions more Vietnamese, Cambodians and Laotian people died. The U.S. Government lied to its people and the people knew it. The Gulf of Tonkin incident introduced the public to “false flag” operations. The Pentagon papers and Watergate illustrated American duplicity. If there was any blind trust in the government, this wiped it away.

7. The fall of the Soviet Union. American backing of the Taliban and al Qaeda in Afghanistan fighting against the USSR, which the Americans called “The Evil Empire”, fell of its own weight. Still, the military industrial complex became even bigger. The saber-rattling did not stop. The Muslim world caught the attention of the American military.

8. The Iraq-Iran War. Saddam Hussein waged war against Iran with the backing of the U.S. Government. Iraq used chemical weapons against not only the Iranian military, but also their own people, the Iraqi Kurds in the north. Hundreds of thousands died.

9. Desert Storm. The1st Gulf war became the first “armchair war” for the American people. The U.S. and coalition forces made short work of Saddam’s Army in Kuwait. The U.S. seemed invulnerable. The hangover from the Vietnam era seemed to be over. This started almost 10 years of sanctions against Iraq.

10. Bosnia and Serbia. The U.S. became involved and persuaded NATO to join with them in a war against Serbia. American involvement was accepted by the U.S. citizenry. Depleted Uranium munitions, cruise missiles and stealth aircraft along with live feeds of the bombing on CNN became another armchair military adventure. This was a sign of things to come; the second “armchair war”.

11. The Rise of the Neo-Cons. George W. Bush becomes the 43rd President in what some called a “stolen” election. While reading a goat story to elementary school children, the World Trade Center was attacked. He continued to read the story until the Secret Service whisked him away to fly aimlessly around the country. The Twin Towers fell into free-fall and both come down at around eight and one half seconds. The Pentagon is hit by a passenger jet nobody saw and another passenger jet crashed or was shot down in Pennsylvania. Immediately, the blame is given to 19 Arab hijackers with box-cutters. The Global War on Terror is born and George Bush, Dick Cheney, Colin Powell and others lied their way into yet another war with Iraq. Congress did nothing as the Executive Branch waged war, striped away the Bill of Rights via the Patriot Acts, The Military Commissions Act of 2006 and other draconian laws. The Department of Homeland Security was born and “detention centers” were built throughout the U.S. The military budget became 49 percent of all the military spending on the planet. Now the U.S. military has bases in over 130 countries. The entire scenario had been previously been written by a Neo-Con “think-tank” The Project for a New American Century in 1998.

12. Israel, Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, al Qaeda and the Taliban and a New President. After eight years of far-right rule consisting of the torture of anyone suspected of terrorism, extraordinary rendition of suspected terrorists, Guantanamo, and suggestions of death squads, the Neo-Cons are replaced by an African-American, democratic “liberal” who used the promise of “Change” to get elected. He immediately made the war in Afghanistan the nation’s #1 military priority and captured the Helmand Province in Afghanistan that many commentators said was essential for an oil pipeline to the west that could bypass Iran.

There is so much more, but I’m writing an article, not a book. The point that I’m trying to get across is that it is no wonder why so many Americans no longer trust their own government. Many have said (including me) that this country is no longer being run by the people, or even the politicians. The country is actually being controlled by corporations, and that many of these corporations are trans-national entities that aren’t even American. The dire economic situation that the world finds itself in is, according to some economists, has been created by corporate interests to grab economic assets in a world-wide “fire sale”.

Could this be the reason why many people that have been paying attention to the world situation through the alternative media actually believe that those in power would actually cause a modern day holocaust in order to reduce the world’s population? There are many people with far better educations than I have seem to think so. If one were to ponder the American track record since the end of World War II, the scenario doesn’t really seem all that implausible.

I would hope that the many articles I have written, could be responsible for some people to pay just a little more attention to what is actually happening in this world, instead of believing what the censored mainstream media is telling you what is happening. When one takes in all that has happened, and contemplates the future based on the past, the future isn’t very bright. Just think about what happened in New Orleans after the devastation of Katrina. This nation has run better relief operations in remote jungles in Asia than it did for its own citizens in Louisiana. They couldn’t have done a more miserable job if they had planned it.

If reading this gives you pause, I’ve done what I planned to do. I’ll say just one more thing; I don’t make this stuff up.

Wake Up
The reason "The People" don't trust their "own Government" is because "The People" are supposed to be running it and one by one we are realizing the American Government dose not care about our children, our lives, our rights being SHOCKED into the reality that money runs the Government, not "the people" dose not leave an "American" to happy!! An American believes in freedom! The American Gov has become a true dictatorship!
