Why Do Adults Believe In Fairy Tales?

What do the following all have in common:
Global warming.
The Boston Marathon terrorist bombing.
The Sandy Hook shooting.
An epidemic of rape and sexual assault on college campuses.
The legitimacy of aka Obama’s birth certificate and presidency.
The solvency of the US economy and the authority of the Federal Reserve.
The theory of evolution.
Answer: they are all fairy tales. Fairy tales concocted by elements of our own government and perpetuated with the full cooperation of mainstream media.
There is no global warming. If anything, we have a mild case of global cooling.
There was no terrorist bombing at the Boston Marathon.
There was no school shooting at Sandy Hook.
There is no epidemic of rape on college campuses.
Aka Obama’s birth certificate is a proven fraud and he has no legitimacy to the office he holds.
The US economy is tanking by the minute and the Federal Reserve, which is neither federal, nor holds any reserves, does not have the authority to print currency.
The theory of evolution is just that – a theory. There is no evidence to support it, and if it really were true, we would have a fossil record showing distinct evolutionary changes from one species to the next. Such a fossil record does not exist.
And yet, if you stopped 100 random Americans on the street and asked them about the above topics, I’m willing to bet that over 95% of them would say that they believe the official stories regarding these same topics. Why is that?
Why do adults believe in lies, false evidence, and fairy tales?
I have several theories. The first is the power of criticism. It’s said that the number one fear most people have is the fear of public speaking. What that fear really indicates is a fear of public criticism. A fear of being laughed at, particularly on a public stage. Today we are told that anything outside of the “official” story on any topic is delusional thinking. Those who dare to question the official story, as presented by the government and mainstream media, are labeled “conspiracy theorists.”
The term “conspiracy theory” seems to have sprung into being just after the JFK assassination in order to label anyone who questioned the official narrative of that event. Today, there are very few thinking Americans who believe in the “lone gunman” explanation of JFK’s murder. The only ones who do believe in the “lone gunman” theory are those who have never taken the time to study any of the evidence.
Thus, fear of ridicule, of being labeled a “conspiracy theorist,” seems to be at the root of why most Americans believe in fairy tales and lies. They either know the truth, but deny it, or they simply refuse to look at available evidence, because their fear of being criticized is stronger than their desire to embrace reality.
I believe another reason why people choose to believe in fairy tales and lies, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, is because it provides them with an excuse for cowardice. Think about it. If you choose to deny reality, your life is simple. You can go through life eating bad food, watching bed television, and believing everything the mainstream media tells you. Plus you save a ton of time by not educating yourself.
On the other hand, if you choose to learn the truth about the world, and suddenly come face-to-face with the enormous level of deceit, treachery and evil that such a study reveals, now you have a responsibility to do something about it. You can’t just bury your head in the sand. You can’t pretend any longer that the truth doesn’t exist. You now have a duty, both to God and to country, to act on what you know. And that is just too damn frightening for most Americans.
I think most men fall into the second reason for believing in fairy tales, and most women fall into the first. Being called a coward is one of the most insulting things a man can face. Most men will do anything to avoid it. That’s why they deny reality, to relieve themselves of whatever responsibility the truth would require of them. They no longer have to act on what they know, because they choose not to know it. Out of sight, out of mind.
Women seem to fear criticism more than men. (If you doubt this, ask yourself why most women are overly concerned with fashion and style.) For that reason, they tend to deny reality primarily for fear of seeming out of place and different. You can include in this group the gatekeepers of the right, those conservative talk show hosts and leaders who tow the party line on every topic, and refuse to even allow any discussion of the topics above.
In either case, the result is the same. Adults believing in fairy tales.

The Secret Sandy Hook Secrecy Bill.

3d-Animasi-Doctor-Duck-Walking-Animated-Animal

If it walks like a duck. Nuff Said.

———————————-  ~ Steve ~ ———————————–
https://lastresistance.com    posted on May 24, 2013 by
Been wondering what has happened with the Sandy Hook case? Want many of the weird questions settled? The legislature of Connecticut has been bypassing normal open procedures to craft a bill behind closed doors that would, if passed, keep basic evidence of the crime forever behind closed doors
From the Hartford Courant, “Bill Drafted In Secret Would Block Release Of Some Newtown Massacre Records”:

Adam Lanza

Adam Lanza


“The staffs of the state’s top prosecutor and the governor’s office have been working in secret with General Assembly leaders on legislation to withhold records related to the police investigation into the Dec. 14 Newtown elementary school massacre — including victims’ photos, tapes of 911 calls, and possibly more. The behind-the-scenes legislative effort came to light Tuesday when The Courant obtained a copy of an email by a top assistant to Chief State’s Attorney Kevin Kane, Timothy J. Sugrue. Sugrue, an assistant state’s attorney, discussed options considered so far, including blocking release of statements ‘made by a minor.’”
You have got to be kidding.
The bereaved Sandy Hook parents are going through hell, I’m sure, and will be doing so for years to come. But they are no more special than the bereaved parents of children who were murdered in Columbine High SchoolAs I wrote back when Michael Moore said he wanted the pictures released,
“If you use Google image search for words like crime scene columbine or Cleboldand Harris, you will find some pretty gruesome pictures. Why is Sandy Hook being treated so differently?”
This entire investigation has been shrouded in secrecy, as evidenced by repeated protests by local editorials (here and here). All this secrecy has been kept simply by the raw will of the police and whoever is overseeing them. What will happen if this becomes enshrined in law? Will it only be the bodies that are kept from view, or will we never get to see any more pictures of the bullet-ridden cars in the parking lot? Or will we be forbidden from seeing photographs of Adam Lanza’s Honda Civic with all four doors open and black sweatshirts strewn on the pavement around it? What about spent shells and the bullet holes in the interior walls? The official story makes Adam Lanza a lone gunman who managed to shoot 155 bullets in under five minutes and hit multiple targets multiple times.
Other than some professional local Connecticut Journalists, the major media has investigated nothing at all related to Sandy Hook, but rather considered it an opportunity to play Oprah Winfrey and to lobby for gun control. Many (Most? All?) of the Sandy Hook parents whose delicate privacy the Connecticut legislators are so concerned about have been aggressively lobbying in the news and in legislatures using their pain as a license to attack the second amendment. Showing the damage would further their cause, just likeMichael Moore said.
I’ve never in my life heard of the side of law and order wanting to suppress evidence. It is always the defense who wants the pictures concealed because of the fear that the jury will become enflamed with a sense of justice against the perpetrator.
What the Connecticut legislature is trying to do just seems backwards. The fact that they have tried to hide what they are doing makes it seem even more sinister.

Mark Kelly's ‘AR-15 Stunt Provokes Giffords Photo Leak.

Giffords1

BTW, Nice grouping.

Can You Say Hypocrisy?

———————————-  ~ Steve~  ————————————–
Posted on 16 March, 2013 by Amy
https://gopthedailydose.com/2013/03/16/mark-kellys-ar-15-stunt-provokes-giffords-photo-leak/
Mark Kelly’s campaign against “assault weapons” such as the AR-15 rifle has sparked a local backlash. On March 13, a Tucson, Arizona radio host published a photograph of former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords holding an AR-15 rifle at a gun range.
Giffords has since confirmed that the photograph is authentic.
James T. Harris, blogging at the website of “101.4 FM The Truth,” wrote:
What is wrong with this picture? Absolutely nothing, and prior to the aggressive progressive opportunistic fear mongering in the wake of Sandy Hook, this picture would have raised no eyebrows and garnered little public attention.
However, in response to the exploitative political scheming of Mark Kelly, persons connected to Congresswoman Giffords released this photo in response to what they perceived to be her husband’s hypocrisy.
Subsequently, Breitbart News confirmed the authenticity of the image through law enforcement sources in Arizona, and obtained a copy of the photograph from a source who requested anonymity.
The latter source was present when the photograph was taken, and said that Giffords had requested it for campaign purposes during October 2010.
According to the source, the image sent to Breitbart News was cropped to protect the identity of the person on the right-hand side of the original photograph (to Giffords’s left).
The source, who is a member of the law enforcement community, told Breitbart News:
“We were told she wanted to toughen her image. She asked to come out and she wanted to shoot a rifle. She had one of our guys out there to show her how to shoot an AR-15.”
In January 2011, Giffords suffered near-fatal wounds in a mass shooting while meeting with constituents in Tucson. The perpetrator used a 9mm Glock 19 semi-automatic pistol.
Giffords and husband Mark Kelly have since formed an organization, Americans for Responsible Solutions, to press for policy changes such as limiting the sale of “assault weapons, ” including the AR-15.
Breitbart News reported last week that Kelly attempted to purchase an AR-15 from a gun store in Tucson earlier this month.
Likewise, the AR-15 that Giffords is shown holding in the image is a standard, semi-automatic civilian weapon, according to the source who saw it being taken.
The source saw a campaign official take the photograph, which was later provided to law enforcement personnel as a courtesy, according to the source.
The source says the existence of the photograph has been known in the local law enforcement community for a while: “I’m not the only one who knows about this photo.”
Multiple law enforcement sources in Arizona told Breitbart News that Mark Kelly’s campaign against “assault weapons” has generated resentment within the law enforcement community–and a desire that the photograph be made public.  The source who witnessed the photograph put it this way:  “Giffords and Kelly came across with a different demeanor in 2010. To me, it seems like they’ve done a complete 180 because of what happened. And with the latest controversy–with Mark Kelly doing what he did with the AR-15 stunt–this photo needs to be put out.”
While Kelly declined to comment, Americans for Responsible Solutions spokesperson Jen Bluestein told Breitbart News: “Looks like the photo is cropped.”  Bluestein noted that there are “many images of Gabrielle Giffords with guns,” though she said she had not seen the image of the AR-15 before.
At 1:14 p.m. PDT, Giffords posted two images on her Facebook page with the following statement:
“Here are two photos of me that a conservative blog has dug up. I remember both of these days fondly. The first is at the Tucson Police Department firing range. They invited me to test rifles and tasers that they bought with federal funds, which I helped secure. The second was in Afghanistan while I was visiting with our troops serving abroad. My work as Southern Arizona’s Congresswoman frequently put me in close contact with some of the world’s most powerful and deadly weapons – supporting police departments, advocating for the Border Patrol, standing up for our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, and supporting my constituents’ and my own Second Amendment rights.
I grew up with guns, and I like owning them. So does my husband Mark. It’s an interest we’ve shared ever since we met. It’s part of my heritage as an Arizonan and it’s my right as an American. Being able to shoot a gun is something I haven’t been able to do since I was shot – because my right arm is paralyzed, and I’m less mobile than I was.
“As I member of the House Armed Services Committee, I proudly spent a lot of time with our military, border patrol and state and local law enforcement. I guess the intention of those who have publicized these photos is to somehow call into question my belief that military style assault weapons should be more strongly regulated with background checks and other safeguards. I have never wavered in my support for those who serve our country. I fought to make sure they have the weapons and safety gear needed to carry out their mission, and proper health and mental care when their service ends.”
I don’t have to choose between owning, using, and enjoying guns, on one hand, and preventing gun violence, on the other. Both sides need to come together to support commonsense solutions to gun violence, like keeping guns out of the hands of dangerous people like the young man who shot me. That’s why I’m fighting this fight. That’s why I’m working to bring people together to support gun rights and reduce gun violence. I hope you join me.

Just a hunch, but I bet she supports Feinstein’s
Proposed ban on so-called “assault weapons”.

6-Year-Old Suspended For Saying, “Pow”
Michael Moore recently said that the only reason white people are buying a bunch of guns in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting is that they’re fearful. Afraid of black people specifically. He said, “Calm down, white people, and put away your guns.” So if we’re all buying guns and ammo out of fear of the black man, what emotion would cause this idiocy: a 6-year-old boy was suspended from school for making his hand in the shape of a gun and pretend shooting it, saying, “Pow,” as it was pointed at a fellow student. Were school officials actually scared that a bullet was going to come out of the child’s index finger and kill his classmate? So, it’s not fear that’s driving this; it’s pure stupidity.
Renee Garraway, the Assistant Principal in this Montgomery County, Maryland school, sent a letter home with the 6-year-old. Her letter, addressing the child’s parents, stated in part that “your son … was involved in a serious incident. [He] threatened to shoot a student. He was spoken to earlier today about a similar incident.” He threatened to shoot a student? Are they kidding? He was probably playing a version of Cops and Robbers. He’s a little boy. At one time, such behavior was considered normal for little boys. Nowadays with the abject paranoia of the left, this child’s configuring his fingers in the shape of a gun is worthy of suspension
And because of the school’s “no tolerance” policy and ridiculous overreaction, the parents have had to retain an attorney, Robin Ficker. Ficker pointed out that “five years from now when someone at Montgomery County looks at [the child’s] permanent record, they’re going to see that he threatened to shoot another student.”
This is similar to another recent incident where a 3-year-old deaf student was told he had to change his sign language name because the hand gestures for the name “Hunter” resembled guns, much like the 6-year-old’s “gun” above being used to shoot a fellow student.
Government schools are proving themselves to be dangerous, mentally, emotionally and physically. They’re also run by imbeciles who think they’re doing society a favor by removing the kids with “behavior problems” such as the child who was playing Cops and Robbers. Shutting down these government schools would do society a much greater favor.

Charlotte Iserbyt's Infowars Interview Leads with Post from Fellowship of the Minds

I knew Charlotte Iserbyt was a scheduled guest on Alex Jones’ Infowars.com radio broadcast last night.  I just watched the Youtube version this morning and Wow! They led with our post about the Newtown tragedy “Creating a Shooter” and that was just for openers. 
Via email this morning, Charlotte described this interview as follows, “Please forward to your lists.  This interview covers the deliberate dumbing down of our children, the deliberate creation of immorality through federally-funded programs, and the dangers of school choice being supported by Obama, CFR, and the Heritage Foundation.”
She lays out the history of the deliberate destruction of our education system to achieve a “planned economy” and explains the roles played by both  Democrats and Republicans and quotes  Pope Benedict XVI, “[T]oday’s culture—characterized among other things by a utilitarianindividualism and technocratic economics—tends not to value the person, who…is conceived of as a “fluid” being with no permanent substance. Paradoxically, man today often seem…s to be an isolated being because he is indifferent to the constitutive relationship of his being, which is the root of all his other relationships: his relationship with God. The human being today is considered mainly in a biological perspective, or as “human capital”, “a resource”, part of a productive and financial mechanism that towers over him.”

CSI star Helgenberger wishes death to NRA members

Marg Helgenberger is a 54-year-old much-botoxed and -Restylaned denizen of Hollyweird, best known for her 12 years pretending to be a crime scene forensic investigator on the TV show CSI.
Marg Helgenberger Cosmetic Surgery
Joe Newby writes for Examiner.com, Dec. 19, 2012, that “Since the tragic Connecticut school shootings last Friday, liberals across the country have been busy proving that theirs is an ideology of hate and rage. Instead of blaming the person who pulled the trigger, liberals have blamed the NRA [National Rifle Association], the Second Amendment and gun owners in general. Many, including Helgenberger, have called for the deaths of NRA members in response to the shootings.”
Twitchy reported Tuesday that last Friday, Dec. 14, novelist Joyce Carol Oates tweeted: “If sizable numbers of NRA members become gun-victims themselves, maybe hope for legislation of firearms.”
To which, Helgenberger tweeted in response:

“@JoyceCarolOates One can only hope, but sadly I don’t think anything would change.”

Did you get that?
Helgenberger says “one can only hope” that NRA members — Americans who have committed no crime, but simply want to preserve their Constitutional Second Amendment right to bear arms — get shot or killed.
Another leftist who also expressed a desire to see NRA supporters dead is John Cobarruvias, a member of the Texas Democratic Party Executive Committee. Although he deleted his tweet and offered a weak apology for it, his Facebook page still contains a message saying that NRA members “need to [be] wiped off the face of the earth.”
Yet another murderous leftist is University of Rhode Island assistant professor Erik Loomis, who called for the death of the CEO of NRA, Wayne LaPierre. (Read more about Loomis here.)
Helgenberger has since deleted her offensive tweet, The Wrap reported.
The National Rifle Association was founded in 1871 to promote firearms “training, education and marksmanship.” Since then, the NRA has become the premier firearms education organization in the world and a major political force and foremost defender of Second Amendment rights in America.
The NRA has been silent since the terrible murder, by 20-year-old Adam Lanza, of 20 children and 6 adults last Friday at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. But the NRA has issued this statement:

NRA STATEMENT

12/18/2012

The National Rifle Association of America is made up of four million moms and dads, sons and daughters – and we were shocked, saddened and heartbroken by the news of the horrific and senseless murders in Newtown.

Out of respect for the families, and as a matter of common decency, we have given time for mourning, prayer and a full investigation of the facts before commenting.

The NRA is prepared to offer meaningful contributions to help make sure this never happens again.

The NRA is planning to hold a major news conference in the Washington, DC area on Friday, December 21.

Details will be released to the media at the appropriate time.

These death threats by the Left are nothing less than TERRORISM, meant to intimidate, harass, and frighten gun owners.
The best way to resist these hateful evil bastards is by becoming a member of the NRA. To join, click here!

U. of Rhode Island professor calls for the death of NRA chief

A professor of a taxpayer-funded state university is calling for National Rifle Association’s (NRA) CEO Wayne LaPierre to be killed.
The professor is Erik Loomis (photo below), who’s an assistant professor of history at the University of Rhode Island (URI).
Erik Loomis1
Oliver Darcy reports for Campus Reform, Dec. 17, 2012, that in the wake of Adam Lanza’s killing of 20 children and 6 adults in Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, Professor Loomis tweeted that “ the National Rifle Association has murdered some more children.” Loomis then called the NRA “a terrorist organization” and declared that he “want[s] Wayne LaPierre’s head on a stick.”
His tweets are now erased.
Thomas Lifson writes in American Thinker, Dec. 18, 2012, that Loomis  received his PhD in history from the University of New Mexico in 2008, and has a history of violent rhetoric directed against conservatives. In March of this year, in an essay ironically titled, “Are Conservatives Any Crazier Today Than 50 Years Ago?,” Loomis called for a “decades-long fight to the death” against conservatives as America’s “only hope.”
Oddly, the hypocrisy and irony of an anti-gun prof calling for the assassination of the CEO of a pro-gun organization is lost on the professor. But that is because, as Lifson observes, Erik Loomis is projecting his own violent impulses onto conservatives.
According to URI’s website, all members of the university community pledge to help foster an “inclusive environment recognizing and respecting diversity.” But one of its faculty clearly does not abide by the university’s pledge. If Professor Loomis is so venomous as to publicly call for the death (“head on a stick”) of the CEO of an organization he disapproves, imagine how Loomis treats his students who are conservative and/or pro-Second Amendment.
H/t FOTM’s Anon.
I tried to find contact information for Loomis and the president of the U. of Rhode Island, David M. Dooley. But I cannot access the University of Rhode Island’s (URI) website www.uri.edu, although there is nothing wrong with my computer or my high-speed Internet connection. But information can be found from other public sources (Rhode Island White Pages and Spokeo):

Erik Loomis
19 Amity St, Apt 2
Providence, RI 02908
(401) 437-6598

UPDATE #1:

Contact info. for David Dooley, President, U. of Rhode Island:

Dooley issued this statement:

December 18, 2012
University Community:

The University of Rhode Island does not condone acts or threats of violence. These remarks do not reflect the views of the institution and Erik Loomis does not speak on behalf of the University. The University is committed to fostering a safe, inclusive and equitable culture that aspires to promote positive change.

Dr. David M. Dooley
President
University of Rhode Island

Wow! That statement sure makes everything all okay now. [Snark]
H/t my bud Mark S. McGrew for the Update!

UPDATE #2:

Eight professors have joined together to issue a statement in support of University of Rhode Island assistant professor Erik Loomis, who last week tweeted that he wanted NRA executive vice president ”Wayne LaPierre’s head on a stick.”
The authors of the statement, posted on the blog Crooked Timber, defend Loomis’ tweet as an example of metaphor and say their defense was “pulled together on an emergency basis” — perhaps explaining why distinguished academics would cite the Urban Dictionary as their source in explaining what “head on a stick” means, as well as their omission of his retweets of other violent metaphors wishing for those who support arming teachers to be “beaten to death” and Dick Morris to be hunted down and skinned for breakfast.
Nevertheless, Loomis has found defenders in academia, who worry that “his lack of tenure makes him vulnerable,” a state of affairs the rest of us who don’t enjoy the defense of “academic freedom” — that is, ”scholars’ freedom independently to express views (even intemperate ones) on topics of public importance” — face every day while arguing our beliefs in the public sphere. The fact that Loomis’ tweets seemingly had nothing to do with his teaching or his field of study further stretches the idea that academics should enjoy special protection from criticism. Meanwhile, the authors of Loomis’ defense call on university administrators to “affirm … the protections of the First Amendment” while overlooking a call for the head of a proponent of the Second Amendment.
