Here’s the deal. The crap you are seeing from the MSM and the public relations bullshit from Bloomberg, Christie, Obama and the other government drones is not telling the true story on the ground. Social media and the internet reveal the true picture because it can’t be controlled by the government. There is a coordinated effort to make it look like the government has everything under control and things are returning to normal. This is the reason they are holding the NY Marathon while people in NYC are dying. The goal of the liberal MSM and the government officials in power is to downplay the chaos through next Tuesday. They want to give the appearance that the government is handling this disaster in a competent way. It’s a false storyline.
Temperatures have been dropping into the 30′s in the last few nights. I listened to common people calling in to the radio station I listen to and giving eyewitness accounts of what is really happening. The refineries in Northern NJ are still without power. 70% of the gas stations are without power. The caller was a truck driver delivering gas from the Phila refineries to the stations up north. He couldn’t get his truck into the gas stations because of the car lines. He witnessed multiple fights and the police had to be called. Another caller from a Northern NJ shore community describing animal carcasses floating in the water and washing up to people’s houses. Diesel tanks had been destroyed and the diesal fuel has inundated homes all over the east coast.
The liberal MSM and the supporters of big government are attempting to spin a story of government helping and working efficiently to safeguard its citizens. The truth is that government is responsible for our infrastructure (roads, bridges, subways, tunnels, electrical grid, and proper protection from mother nature). How have they done so far? It is absolutely clear that the trillions in taxes we pay have not been used by politicians to prepare the infrastructure for a major storm. Government has failed miserably. That is a fact. The victims of their incompetence will now be put through the government wringer of bureacracy, paperwork, and ineptitude.
We can only depend on ourselves and maybe our neighbors. The people who knew the government would not save them had generators, gas, food supplies, and water supplies. The people in fistfights at gas stations and freezing in their damaged houses believed that Big Brother Government would watch over them and come to their rescue. They are learning the truth now. No matter how much the MSM tries to spin this disaster, the truth is being experienced by millions.
This tragic event is the next turning point in this darkening Fourth Turning. The mood of the country will take a turn for the worse. The future is right before our eyes in Northern NJ and NYC.
