Ignorance Is Bliss Until It Kills You....

Written by Sybele Capezzutti on . Posted in Sybele's Point Of View

I always say that in today's world being ignorant is a choice, you don't even have to leave your house and go to the library anymore; information is at your fingertips! Buying into the political game that keeps some people from suffering the consequences of their bad choices is not only naive but extremely dangerous, that is called "false knowledge". 

Islamic extremism was NOT created by western countries through war. Those interferences certainly destabilized some regions, (we tend to take down dictators that are then replaced with much worse) but did not create the mentality that plagues the world today. And please, climate change is the most ridiculous excuse I've ever heard in my life for killing people! There are people living in drought and poverty conditions in the northern part of Brazil for two centuries and they kill no one. 

Islamic genocide started way before we invaded Iraq, if you have no knowledge of that then you need to inform yourself before accepting the "new truth" being spewed by the so called journalists who will say anything to protect their sponsors. 

The following are just a few examples of Islamic extremism and murder.

Between 1915 - 1917 the Muslim controlled Ottoman Empire of Turkey committed the Armenian Genocide.  The total casualties were 2,700,000 Christians which included 750,000 Assyrians, 500,000 Greeks and 1.5 million Armenians.  This was done for two reasons; ethnic cleansing and Islamic Jihad.  

Then again between 1953 – 2005 in the Sudan, a total of 3.5 million, including 2.5 million between 1983 – 2005.  The reason again was Arab Islamic “supremacy” over “inferior” Southerners wherein jihad was declared by Numeiri in 1983 and again by al-Bashir in 1991.

Over 100,000 in Papua New Guinea since 1963 have been slaughtered by Muslim Indonesians: both government and Jihadists.  More ethnic cleansing and jihad, only this time with the added element of apartheid. 

From 1966 – 1970 there were 3 million IBO Christians killed by Muslim, (Hausa) dominated forces. From the 1970’s – 2000 another 300,000 Lebanese fell to Syrian 'Palestinians.'  Let’s not forget the 3 million in Bangladesh murdered by Islamic Pakistanis in 1971 because of contempt for “impure” Bengalis.  In every case, Muslims on Christians and others.

I could go on, but the list would be too long. This is not something new or caused by the Iraqi war or the Syrian civil war; we're just seeing the result of pretending this has not been a problem for decades.  And since now that we've included political correctness and climate change to how we deal with the problem, I don't see it getting better any time soon.

America, I remember when...

Written by Sybele Capezzutti on . Posted in Sybele's Point Of View

When I came to America 32 years ago..

You didn't even know who was illegal because they were afraid of being deported, today they march on the streets waiving the flags of their country of birth and are protected by activists.  Patriotism was admired and respected, but today patriots are called right wing extremists.

Immigrants kept their traditions at home with pride but assimilated to the American culture, today they want Americans to assimilate to theirs and if they don't, they are labelled racists.

Back then, it made no difference what political party you voted for; today that defines your circle of friends. Protests that turned violent were called riots, today they are called activism.  Journalists delivered the news, today they deliver opinions.  A President who kept the Country safe by enforcing strict immigration laws was respected; today he is called a xenophobe.

If people disagreed with each other they debated the issue, made healthy jokes, even peacefully protested.

Today they riot, attack, create false stories, shut down any possibility of a dialogue, and intimidate.

These changes did not happen in a week or a month, or even a year; nor are they the result of one election or one President.  Just like the person who starts with one drink a day, then two, then the entire bottle....the change was gradual.

Americans allowed all the small changes and one day woke up like an alcoholic trying to understand how they got there.  It's hard to sober up, the process is painful.  There is denial, anger, depression, and for some it's easier to just accept their fate and blame everyone else for their demise so they don't have to go through the painstaking process of being in control of their lives again.

I look at what is going on in our country and I see half of the country determined to get it together and the other half breaking the bar because the bar tender said no more drinks.

It's going to be a long, bumpy, and costly ride!

Is Trump The "New" Hitler...?

Written by Sybele Capezzutti on . Posted in Sybele's Point Of View

Equating Trump to Hitler for the travel ban from terrorist infested countries shows not only lack of historical knowledge but most importantly lack of analytical thinking.  Hitler used the xenophobic concept of a pure race to get rid of Jews because they had the economic control of his country.  Hitler had the help of the Shah of Iran to come up with the idea of the yellow star to distinguish Jews from everyone else...which was taken from Sharia back in the days when Muslims took over Jewish land and forced Jews to wear a yellow waist band.

Jews were not all over the World murdering people in the name of their God, Jews did not commit any mass murders in Germany or anywhere else, Jews did not form an army of brainwashed soldiers dedicated to eradicate all other faiths from the face of the earth, Jews did not go on recruiting young gullible minds to rape, torture and kill anyone who didn't accept their faith. They were singled out exclusively for their faith because they were a political threat to Hitler economically. 

There is absolutely no moral equivalence between Hitler's actions and the travel ban proposed by Trump. Furthermore...there are 50 Muslim majority countries in the World and the travel ban lists only 7 of those countries; so clearly it is not focused on religious affiliation but terrorist activity.  

Ironically, many American Jews seem to have no clue of their own history; they are the victims of the same ideology that has made many white Americans hate themselves after being successfully convinced their “privilege” is the root of all evil in this country. The suicidal empathy of the left led by protestors who seem to always be ready to leave the house with signs in hand within hours of any announcement made by President Trump or anyone else who offers an opinion contrary to theirs, and a sponsored media who carefully chooses its words to manipulate the collective thinking are the real danger to our National Security. 

They are determined to force all of us into accepting their illogical fear of a media created “Hitler” by using cultural Marxism without even realizing they are the ones acting like the gullible Germans who fell for the very well elaborated mind control tactic of Adolf Hitler.  

Make no mistake, in today’s world, radical Islam is Hitler, and it seeks to make itself the only “pure” race. How ironic that groups such as CAIR and ISNA have been able to use the fear our society has of becoming intolerant like the Nazis to convince so many that they should be more afraid of rejecting a culture that has for centuries openly declared their desire to dominate the world than to fight for their own survival..?!

Job Number One For Government Is Safety

Written by Sybele Capezzutti on . Posted in Sybele's Point Of View

Publisher’s Note:  Sybele Capezzutti is not one to pull any punches and she is righteously upset.  In a few short paragraphs she says what so many are thinking, and I could not agree more.  Enough is enough.

Sybele Capezzutti:  To all the people outraged that Trump blocked the entry of people from terrorist infested areas saying it's unconstitutional....it isn't.

You know what is unconstitutional?  For the Federal government to fail to protect its Citizens.  You know what else was unconstitutional?  The health care mandate.

Yet I had to hear over and over that people voted for it, so whether I liked it or not I had no choice but to accept it and pay more for my insurance.

You will find no sympathy from me now!  We voted to keep terrorists from coming into the country mixed with the refugees. Your intimidation tactics via protests and anarchy only makes me want to stand my ground even firmer.

All of you thinking you are so much better than everyone else because you want anyone to come to this country without proper vetting are not only detached from reality, you are removing my right to expect my government to keep me and my family safe..!

This is MY country too..!  I want it to be safe, I want it to be prosperous, and I want a better future for my son..!

You want to show that you care about everyone all over the world then quit your job, join a charity, go to the Middle East and do it there..!

Your candidate lost, your turn to accept what you don't like.  I've spent the last 8 years having your Marxist ideology shoved down my throat...NO MORE!

I'm tired of this BS!

Oil Pipelines Flowing With Cash And Lies...

Written by Sybele Capezzutti on . Posted in Sybele's Point Of View

Publisher's Note:  The other day, Sybele Capezzutti explained what might cause oil pipelines to leak.  In today's second of two articles, she explains the bigger problem of why the Keystone and Dakota Pipelines are being thwarted every step of the way.  

Sybele Capezzutti:  Winston Churchill famously said “He who controls oil will win the next war”.

The black gold doesn’t only keep vehicles running and jets flying, it is also the raw material for paints, roof shingles, plastic products, nylon fabric, synthetic rubber (your Nikes), PVC pipes, artificial limbs, solid surface countertops, asphalt tar,  frames for glasses, basically anything plastic like your phone case, computer keyboard, etc. 

It is no wonder this thick gooey smelly product has become the reason for wars, toppling leaders of Nations and the rise of the environmental conscience, all funded by the ones who seek to control it.

Yes, I am putting environmentalists in the same category with heads of State who start wars!

If I wanted to control something as important as oil I wouldn’t try to do so by promoting wars, I would recruit an army of volunteers to fight against my enemies by infiltrating a few paid generals in the crowd to convince people that they are fighting for justice.  Nothing is more convincing as a good cause.  We humans tend to sacrifice it all to save what we consider to be defenseless, and what is more defenseless than the earth we live on?

Now, I am not in any way someone who doesn’t care about the environment.  I do care, and I do want clean water and clean air. But I am also very well aware of how easy it is to take something good and use it to benefit the greed of a few…think about how some charities exploit our sensitivity to collect money that never benefits the cause they promote.

Once the group thinking is established, all you have to do is pick the target and say go! The environment can be used as the background for almost anything one wants to keep from happening or promote.

The United States has the largest network of energy pipelines in the world, with more than 2.4 million miles of pipe. The network of crude oil pipelines in the U.S. is extensive. There are approximately 72,000 miles of crude oil lines in the U.S. that connect regional markets.  Clearly, oil spills are not a regular occurrence or we would be bathing in oil by now.

The XL pipeline will have 1,179 miles and the Dakota pipeline 1,134 miles.  Considering the 2.4 million already in use, it is baffling that anyone has a problem with these two projects.  So, common sense led me to believe that the environment was just a clever cover to fight for the interests of the elite seeking control.

Putin-allied Russian oil billionaires laundered $23 million through the Bermuda-based Wakefield Quin law firm to the Sea Change Foundation and then to anti-fracking and anti-Keystone groups, the Environmental Policy Alliance fund (which later became Bold Alliance).

Bold Alliance is an umbrella group which began by protesting the Keystone XL pipeline in Nebraska. It now has chapters in a total of four states–Nebraska, Iowa, Oklahoma, and Louisiana–and is a supporter of the Standing Rock protests in North Dakota.  It claims to be a grassroots group fighting for the environment by opposing gas and oil pipelines.

Other groups created with the sole purpose to fight against oil and gas pipelines were “Honor the Earth”, and the “Indigenous Environmental Network”, both funded by Tides Foundation.

Tides is a donor advised fund that directs money to politically liberal causes, its combined cash flows exceed $200 million a year.

Paul Driessen, the author of Echo-Imperialism: Green – Black Death, explains in his book how backing makes the $13-billion-per-year U.S. environmentalist movement a power to be reckoned with.  These tax-exempt foundations do not simply give money to pressure groups. They serve as puppeteers, telling protesters what campaigns to conduct, what tactics to use. Meanwhile, donors enjoy deductions for “charitable giving” to “education, conservation and other social change” programs.

One of Tides’ biggest donors is Warren Buffett who funneled 30.5 million through his family’s NoVo to Tides foundation and applied enough pressure in Washington to stall the Keystone Pipeline while Buffett bought the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad and Union Tank Car manufacturing company.  When Keystone was blocked, more oil was shipped by rail – much of it via Buffett companies. In fact, oil-by-rail skyrocketed from 9,500 carloads in 2009 to 450,000 carloads in 2014.  After a derailment in Lac Megantic  (Quebec) that caused a spill which destroyed most of the town and killed 47 people, Buffett criticized Obama for blocking the pipeline.  One would almost think Buffett is a politician! 

Then there were the Dakota pipeline protests! Who could forget that?

Even I, a skeptic, was moved by all the Native Americans fighting for their sacred land! 

It was not until a friend who lives in the area told me we were all being fooled that I felt the need to look into it further, like millions of Americans my heart was hurting for our already marginalized Indigenous people.

To my surprise, most of the protestors were not even Native Americans.  According to a CNN online report by Jessica Ravitz, protestors at Standing Rock were from all over the World including Japan, Germany, Serbia and Russia.   She interviewed Fool Bear Sr., chairman of Cannon Ball who said he just wanted everyone to go away. Fool Bear said “if they could come from other planets I think they would”.  Isn’t that strange? Why would foreigners take such interest in protesting a pipeline in the US? Remember who the first donors to the foundation that started it all were? 

And why are Indigenous people protesting a pipeline that is not even going to cross sacred land? Yes, that’s right, the pipeline doesn’t cross Sioux land, even less sacred land.  Fool Bear also said that more than two years ago, when members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe could have attended hearings to make their concerns known, they didn't care.

Protesters claim that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers failed to consult tribal leaders as required by federal law. The record shows that the corps held 389 meetings with 55 tribes. Tribal leaders for Standing Rock Sioux ignored request for comments and cancelled meetings multiple times, but were the ones to initiate the law suit and protests.

Many alterations were made to the route to avoid environmentally or culturally sensitive areas. In North Dakota alone, 140 route adjustments were made to the pipeline during the planning process, including seventeen route adjustments to address concerns from involved parties.

The Dakota Access Pipeline does not cross any land belonging to the Standing Rock Sioux. The remaining area of construction, at Lake Oahe, is home to eight pipelines, including existing non-DAPL owned dual 42-inch pipelines which have been operating immediately parallel to the new route for over 30 years. The water inlet for the Standing Rock Sioux will be over 70 miles away from the location of the pipeline by  early 2017. The pipeline will be buried 92 feet below the riverbed.

The conclusion on both pipelines, Keystone and Dakota, is that all precautions have been taken to cause the least environmental and human disturbance and the only tribe in Dakota upset with its construction is also the one who chose to not even participate on the permitting process.

What could have caused their sudden interest?  Money perhaps…?!  You decide.
