One of the things I never expected when I retired from High Tech to write my Award Winning Thriller novels was the extent that “reality” would crash into my books. My tag line is now, “Thrillers are fiction, until it happens….“
This shows up in several ways. One is that I have developed an amazing network of friends, some VERY knowledgeable and successful, who feed me information and guide me into some dark areas of knowledge that the Orwellian News (we now call it “Fake News Media”) tends to overlook.
My readers want me to be informed. It helps my novels, but some things scare me. One thing that has become glaringly clear to me over the past few years is how clueless American News Sources are about the key world events that threaten us.
This mostly comes from the strong socialist ideological bias in Academia, Hollywood and the Media, but the problem goes beyond that. The truth is that our news media, focused on the Washington DC echo chamber, no longer has independent, high quality foreign sources. They are mostly running blind.
American News Media no longer maintains foreign news bureaus, choosing to source their news from third parties, such as Reuters, BBC, Al Jazeera, CAIR, RT, etc. Bias coupled with ignorance can be toxic. Much of our news media is owned or controlled by foreign sources and rich elites who have their own agendas, including some who are truly evil, e.g. George Soros.
Americans are today overloaded with distractions, threats, and disinformation, which is why the overwhelming election of Donald Trump was such a surprise to the pollsters, pundits, and talking heads. Still, most are aware that as he leaves office, President Obama is going out of his way to weaken America by releasing terrorists, freeing criminals, importing tens of thousands of non-vetted illegals, and doing his best to inflame America’s relations with others on the world stage, particularly Russia and Israel.
Obama is giving Iran tons of uranium and billions of dollars to fund weapons and terrorism. Much of this is America’s own uranium, thanks to Clinton’s “Uranium One” deal that sold 20% of our own uranium to a Russian company, who can legally resell it to Iran. ISIS is here.
That has all been reported. So what can an Indy novelist add? Just this small piece.
OBAMA HAS JUST AGREED TO BRING IN THE WORST OF THE WORST VIOLENT JIHADISTS, A LARGE GROUP OF UNKNOWN “REFUGEES” LACKING IDENTITY PAPERS THAT THE REST OF THE WORLD HAS DECLINED TO ACCEPT.
Here is some proof from an outraged Aussie reader. I leave it to you to help ensure that this gets the exposure it deserves. Good luck to you and may God Bless America.
“This article says that these people are asylum seekers from various hot spots like Syria, Iran etc. My understanding is that they are largely from Bangladesh and Pakistan and go to Malaysia where they find a boat with people smugglers, pay money, and try to get to Australia.
The prior left-wing government allowed them in if they made it to Australia’s shores. The present Conservative government took a hard line and has been ‘parking’ the illegal aliens (the media calls them ‘asylum seekers’) in Nauru and Manus Island in New Guinea (with Australia’s consent).”
You might amplify that these people are the worst of the worst. They couldn’t qualify for release into Australia, they refused to be returned to their home countries (in fact, lying about their origination countries and discarding their documents at sea so the Australians couldn’t verify from where they originated) and they turned down the offer of settlement in Cambodia, all saying that they wanted to go to Australia and then would riot when they were declined.
Now they are being sent to freedom in the United States – the worst of the worst. While in the processing centers they rioted, some murdered, there were rapes and assaults of women, beatings of guards, hunger strikes.
Now they come to America? This is unforgivable.”
Here is more:
CANBERRA, AUSTRALIA —
The United States has agreed to resettle an unspecified number of refugees languishing in Pacific island camps in a deal that is expected to inspire more asylum seekers to attempt to reach Australia by boat, officials said on Sunday.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull would not say whether he had discussed the deal with President-elect Donald Trump during their telephone conversation on Thursday.
The Obama administration had agreed to resettle refugees among almost 1,300 asylum seekers held at Australia’s expense on the island nations of Nauru and Papua New Guinea.
