Trust Our Government? 

I enjoy history.  I think we can learn a valuable lesson from it.  History makes me question how much we should trust our government.

Last week I watched an Amelia Earhart special on the History Channel.  The official government position is that Ms. Earhart’s plane went down in the Pacific Ocean with her and her navigator, Captain Fred Noonan, in 1937.  After viewing the program, I once again questioned our government.

Earhart probably made a water landing by a Marshall Island beach.  The Marshall Islands even have stamps showing this event.

Earhart had a functioning radio after landing and she sent messages for two days in the predawn hours.  These messages were picked up by ham radio operators in the U.S. and Canada.

The Marshall Islands were under the control of the Japanese at the time.  The evidence shows that the Japanese recovered the plane, Earhart, and Noonan.  Evidence of the plane and the wheels the Japanese used to move the plane have been found.

A photo has recently been discovered that show Earhart and Noonan on a pier in the Marshall Islands Jaluit Harbor.  Their plane also shows on a barge pulled by an identified Japanese ship.  This photo had been misfiled, and maybe that was the only reason it had not been destroyed by the government.

Earhart and Noonan were then taken to a Japanese prison on Siapan where they later died.  The Japanese said the “woman pilot” and Noonan were spies.

Many witnesses have also confirmed these events.  A woman who saw the “woman pilot” in the prison when she was a girl still is alive and living in San Francisco.

After Siapan was taken from the Japanese in WWII, two U.S. Marines were told by their Captain to dig up a grave which he said was Earhart’s.  The bones were identified as a 40 year old woman and they disappeared.  In the 80’s the grave site was excavated again and recovered additional bone fragments.  These too have disappeared.

If this scenario is to be believed, why did our government cover up the truth?  One explanation is that the U.S. had cracked the Japanese code and didn’t want the Japanese to know.  If this is true, why continue the cover-up after the war?

Earhart is certainly not the only government cover-up.  Anyone who has ever studied President John Kennedy’s assassination knows the official account is a lot of BS.  There is only one explanation of what really happened that fits all the facts, but who was responsible is another story.  Maybe that is why the cover-up continues.

Benghazi is a recent example of a government cover-up.  Blaming a video is ludicrous.  We know what happened, but who and why was the military told to stand down?  Was this purely for political reasons for the upcoming Presidential election, or were they covering up some other activity?

We have other famous potential government cover-ups.  What really happened in Area 51 in Nevada?  Have we had visitors from outer space?

Our Founding Fathers counted on the media to keep our government honest.  Unfortunately, that is certainly not true today.  Rather than diligent investigative reporting, the lame stream would rather go with fake news to get headlines.

Some polls show that only 14% of our country feel they can trust our media.  That is pretty sad as we have a higher percentage than that of left wing extremists that agree with the fake news.

I hope and pray that both the government and media can change.

God bless President Trump and guide him to make America great again.

    When I started reading this I thought you went nuts, but I read on thinking maybe you were going to compare this to healthcare insurance. Great comparison. I do my own car maintenance and I take care of my health and avoid visits to the doctor’s office / clinic like I avoid auto mechanics and ticks. I do buy tires and have them mounted and have had a clutch replaced. Other than that timing belts and water pumps on PT Cruisers don’t even stop me… neither does exercise and trying to eat right and maintain a reasonable weight. Great blog post.
