If Dick Cheney is talking about a nuclear attack I think we should take it seriously. The post explains why;
The Southern Strategy is to blame your actions on the non-white person. This strategy of racism has been GOP policy since Nixon and has won them many Presidencies turning approximately half of America into a culture of zombies (for lack of a better word).
We know the 9/11 commission was compromised.
We know the media is now under - mostly - GOP control and that's how the Iraq war happened and how we continue to fight multiple wars abroad without having any public discussions on them.
We know that no matter how many times we point out the Iraq war coverup in the "news" media,..., the media will continue with it's coverup knowing that they reach more people and have more credibility as a news station since people don't know any better.
We know the architecture of all three buildings on 9/11 couldn't have led to a pancake like collapse from fire (in one case, no plane even hit the building).
What we have is an information war with some of its proponents (such as Alex Jones) are so deep in paranoia that their brains no longer function (a normal response from stress, if you think about it).
Here is a look at the stuff that started Alex Jones down the path to madness;
Now, given what we now about
1. the media's ability to cover up information from the Iraq war,
2. the Bush Administrations opposition to the 9/11 commission,
3. the problems with the 9/11 commission itself proving it was compromised,
4. the ability of the media to blame everything on non-whites to a point where they got a Floridian prosecutor to throw the Trayvon Martin case and have managed to turn Ferguson into another Benghazi with their cover up of the second DOJ report,
5. Blaming everything on Obama including when he is just following a GOP idea like Obama did with Bergdhal using John McCain's advice, AND
6. The GOP's consistent, yet effective, smearing campaign of the President...
Notice what Dick Cheney said recently...
Dick Cheney: ISIS Will Nuke US
The Setup For Dick Cheney's Nuclear Strike Has Already Begun & The Liberal "News" Media Has Taken The Bait Preparing Dick Cheney's Alibi;
Dick Cheney And Sean Hannity Fear Monger About A Nuclear Terror Attack
Sean Hannity: We Have A President That Wants To Give The Iranians Nuclear Weapons
The right wing anti-Obama smear machine is so effective of spinning out new rumors that the belief that Obama will nuke America has even spread. All Cheney will ever have to do is blow up a nuke in some city, blame any brown guy and say Obama's policies led to this happening and it will work.
Where do right-wing conspiracies come from? After a woman tells Rick Santorum that President Obama "tried to blow up a nuke in Charleston," Chris Hayes asks: Did I miss something?
Now they can blow up a nuke, say the media was wrong and "we", the Cheney, were right and blame Obama for his incompetence. The Ultimate Southern Strategy Setup.
Moment Of Zen:
Help will be provided by the right wing media (as usual) here are some samples;
• O'Reilly falsely claimed Iraq had ricin. O'Reilly responded to a caller to his radio show by defending the Iraq war: "They did have ricin up there in the north -- so why are you discounting that so much?" In fact, the Duelfer report (the final report of the Iraqi Survey Group, led by Charles A. Duelfer, which conducted the search for weapons in Iraq following the U.S.-led invasion) indicates that Iraq did not have ricin. (10/19/04)
• O'Reilly repeated discredited claims on Iraq-Al Qaeda link. O'Reilly interrupted a former Clinton administration official who tried to correct the record on O'Reilly's claim that terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi constitutes a direct link between Al Qaeda and Saddam Hussein's Iraq. He also allowed a conservative guest to repeat without challenge other discredited claims about Iraq's supposed involvement in terrorism -- claims O'Reilly has himself cited in the past. (9/27/04)
