Snopes On Verge of Financial Meltdown

Snopes has been a tool of the Progressive-Liberals as I have reported for a long time. They have twisted the facts and far too many people who have challenged my words and now they can apologize, but will not.  My thanks to Peter Forrest for sharing this article with me this morning. Obviously Snopes will deny everything. The media may take Trump down but I hope the American people will rise up and smack them in their pocket boo and force Congress to enter the world of modern communication. Making McCain actually be in his throne in the Senate Chamber to vote is unbelievable ignorance. We are living in 2017 not 1817 that Congress lives in.   CB  7-27-17

By Andrew West | July 26, 2017

In the new liberal war on information, the very definition of the word “fact” has been called into question in order to create doubt among their voter base.

While Hillary Clinton was floundering in the 2016 election, spin-masters in the mainstream media, along with her campaign advisors, found themselves struggling to find a scapegoat for their “inevitable” candidate’s coming demise.  They had previously tried to attack Donald Trump on several fronts, but to no avail.  It seemed as though Hillary Clinton’s purported, and later proven, corruption was too far embedded in the character of her candidacy.

That’s when the democrats decided to try something desperate:  They would fight a war of perception.

Instead of arguing with journalists and outlets with whom they disagreed, the democrats and the mainstream media would simply decide that those outlets were “fake news”.  It was a quick and easy dismissal to use, and the concept went viral.  Soon, any and every conservative news outlet found themselves on some imaginary “list”, concocted by some low-level liberal arts professor at You Name It Community College.

In short, it was a mess.  Who, then, would validate the validity of these claims?

Enter Snopes.com, one of the earliest authorities on the internet.  As the advent of the world wide web created a need for verifying the identity of those Nigerian Princes and getting the real story behind that photo of the guy on top of the Twin Towers, Snopes became the de facto destination for separating the wheat from the chaff of internet urban legends.   As the internet grew, so did Snopes, who began branching out into real world legends shortly after.

As the war against Fake News continued to devolve into pure madness, with no authority truly able to right the ship, Facebook and Google decided that Snopes was the answer.  These two liberal leviathans of the online world would give the job to the husband and wife team behind the debunking website, and then forcefully interject the Snopes opinion in their own search results.  The obviously flawed plan is currently still in place.

But for how long?

“So-called ‘fact-checking’ website Snopes.com is reportedly on the verge of financial collapse since one if its founders has been accused of using company cash to fund his contentious divorce and to pay for fancy vacations with his new wife, a former escort and porn actress.

“The financial situation has apparently become so dire that Snopes owner David Mikkelson launched a crowd-funding website to solicit donations, according to London’s Daily Mail. Readers contributed more than $500,000 in just the first 24 hours.

“Snopes.com’s founders, former husband and wife David and Barbara Mikkelson, have been embroiled in a lengthy and bitter legal dispute in the wake of their divorce. At one point, Barbara accused the CEO of using company money for prostitutes. Barbara Mikkelson also accused her ex-husband of embezzling more than $100,000 in company funds. She urged the court to limit access to David’s bank account because she said she feared he would drain the company funds due to his wild spending habits.

“David claimed Barbara took millions from their joint accounts and bought property in Las Vegas. He has since remarried to a former escort and porn actress, Elyssa Young, who is one of the site’s staff members. Young, who was a Las Vegas escort until at least 2015, charged $500 for her services. She also starred in porn films as ‘Erin O’Bryn.’”

This, folks, is the group in charge of determining “fake news” for the liberals.

(and who will fact-check this one?!)

SOME CARE FOR OUR VETERANS!

My great friend, Dr. Peter Forrest, shared this wonderful story that I hope everyone that reads this will share it with everyone they know. Every golfer on Earth needs to read this and even if you are not a golfer it should put a tear in your eyes. Even Snopes (who are politically biased) stated this story is true! Please help circulate this wonderful story.

C Brewer

I played the Disney, Lake Buena Vista course. As usual the starters matched me with three other players. After a few holes we began to get to know each other a bit. One fellow was rather young and had his wife riding along in the golf cart with him.

I noticed that his golf bag had his name on it and after closer inspection, it also said “wounded war veterans “.

When I had my first chance to chat with him I asked him about the bag.

His response was simply that it was a gift. I then asked if he was wounded and he said yes. When I asked more about his injury, his response was “I’d rather not talk about it, sir”.

Over a few holes I learned that he had spent the last 15 months in an army rehabilitation hospital in San Antonio, Texas. His wife moved there to be with him and he was released from the hospital in September. He was a rather quiet fellow; however, he did say that he wanted to get good at golf.

We had a nice round and as we became a bit more familiar I asked him about the brand new set of Ping woods and irons he was playing. Some looked like they had never been hit.

His response was simple. He said that this round was the first full round he had played with these clubs. Later in the round, he told me the following.

As part of the discharge process from the rehabilitation hospital, Ping comes in and provides three days of golf instruction, followed by club fitting. Upon discharge from the hospital, Ping gives each of the discharged veterans, generally about 40 soldiers, a brand new set of custom fitted clubs along with the impressive golf bags.

The fellow I met was named Ben Woods and he looked me in the eye and said that being fitted for those clubs was one of the best things that ever happened to him and he was determined to learn to play golf well enough to deserve the gift Ping had given him.

Ben is now out of the service medically discharged just a month ago. He is as fine a young man as you would ever want to meet.

Ping, whose products are made with pride here in America (Arizona), has the good judgement not to advertise this program.

God Bless America and the game of golf.

Thank you PING.

May God Bless our Military!

This one deserves to be shared with everybody!  Author Unknown

This put a tear in this 86-year-old Navy veteran who took up golf seriously when I retired 23 years ago. I enlisted at 17 and after 5 years I was honorably discharged over 64 years ago. I will remember this story every time I use my Ping putter. If I ever buy new golf products, it will be from Ping if they make them.     Clyde Brewer

JUVAL AVIV – TERROR ATTACKS!

My old Florida friend Bob McGraw just shared this interesting article that has no mention of who wrote or published it. I spent many years and over three million miles traveling around this world in my life time and witnessed many different security methods and warnings used long before 9/11. Before I decided to post this I did some research as I had never heard of Juval Aviv so here is a brief background I found on Wikipedia.

Juval Aviv (Hebrew: יובל אביב‎‎; born Yuval Aviof;[1] February 24, 1947), also known as Yuval Aviv, is an Israeli-American security consultant and writer. He may be best known for his work with Mossad, the Israeli intelligence service, and for having conducted the counter-terrorist operation as detailed by George Jonas in his book, Vengeance (1984). Since 2003, Aviv has published four books related to security, two of which address notable mysteries. He writes under the nom-de-plume of Sam Green.

I checked the article Bob sent me and Snopes listed it as false. I have edited out material I can’t confirm. What I am sharing is important for all Americans to read and I don’t care who wrote it. CB

 Currently, our government only focuses on security when people are heading to the gates. Aviv says that if a terrorist attack targets airports in the future, they will target busy times on the front end of the airport when/where people are checking in. For example, it would be easy for someone to take two suitcases of explosives, walk up to a busy check-in line, ask a person next to them to watch their bags for a minute while they run to the restroom, and then detonate the bags BEFORE security even gets involved. In Israel, security checks bags BEFORE people can even ENTER the airport.

My last visit to Europe was at least 27 years ago. I can vividly remember as it was on Thanksgiving Day and extremely windy and cold at the airport in Frankfort Germany. In addition to the usual security at that time we were individually escorted to the tarmac and identify our checked luggage before it was loaded on the airplane. I also remember it was the first time in my life I was served roasted “Goose” for my Thanksgiving dinner. CB

Aviv says the next terrorist attack here in America is imminent and will involve suicide bombers and non-suicide bombers in places where large groups of people congregate, such as Disneyland, Las Vegas casinos, shopping malls, subways in rush hour, train stations, etc., as well as in rural America this time (Wyoming, Montana, etc.). The attack will be characterized by simultaneous detonations around the country involving at least 5-8 cities, including rural areas.

Aviv says terrorists won’t need to use suicide bombers in many of the larger cities, because at places like the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, they can simply valet park a car loaded with explosives and walk away.

Aviv says all of the above is well known in intelligence circles, but that our U.S. Government does not want to ‘alarm American citizens’ with the facts. The world, however, is soon going to become ‘a different place’, Aviv says, where issues like ‘global warming’ and political correctness will have become totally irrelevant.

On an encouraging note, Aviv says that Americans don’t have to be concerned about being nuked. He says the terrorists who want to destroy America will not use sophisticated weapons. Instead, they like to use suicide, as it’s cheap, it’s easy, and it’s effective and they have an infinite abundance of young, ignorant, fanatic militants more than willing to ‘go see Allah’.

Aviv also says the next level of terrorists over which America should be most concerned will not be coming from abroad. They will instead be ‘home grown’ meaning they will have attended and been educated in our own schools and universities right here in the U.S. These young terrorists will be most dangerous because they will know our language and will fully understand the habits of Americans; but that we Americans won’t know/understand a thing about them.

So, what can America do to protect itself? From an intelligence perspective, Aviv says the U.S. needs to stop relying on satellites and technology for its intelligence. Instead, we need to follow Israel ‘s, Ireland ‘s and England’s hands-on examples of human intelligence, both from an infiltration perspective as well as to trust ‘aware’ citizens to help. We need to engage and educate ourselves as citizens; however, our U.S. Government continues to treat us, its citizens, ‘like babies’. Our government thinks we can’t handle the truth’ and are concerned that we’ll panic if we understand the realities of terrorism. Aviv says this is a deadly mistake.

These next two paragraphs may be fabricated and I can’t confirm their validity but even if they are fabricated they are important knowledge and warnings.

****Aviv recently created/executed a security test for Congress by placing an empty briefcase in five well-traveled spots in five major cities. The results? Not one person called 911 or sought a policeman to check it out. In fact, in Chicago, someone tried to steal the briefcase!

******In comparison, Aviv says that citizens of Israel are so well ‘trained’ that an unattended bag or package would be reported in seconds by citizen(s) who know to publicly shout, ‘Unattended Bag!’ The area would be quickly & calmly cleared by the citizens themselves. But, unfortunately, America hasn’t been ‘hurt enough’ yet by terrorism for their government to fully understand the need to educate its citizens or for the government to understand that it’s the citizens who are, inevitably, the best first-line of defense against terrorism.

Aviv also was concerned about the high number of children who were in preschool and kindergarten after 9/11, children who were basically ‘lost’ without parents being able to pick them up, and schools that had no plan in place to best care for the students until their parents could get there. (In New York City, in some cases this was days!) He stresses the importance of having a plan that’s agreed upon within your family, to respond to in the event of a terrorist emergency. He urges parents to contact their children’s schools and demand that the schools, too, develop plans of actions, as they do in Israel. He says we should all have a plan that is easy enough for even our youngest children to remember and follow.

Does your family know what to do if you can’t contact one another by phone? Where would you gather in an emergency? Bottom line, you need to have a plan!

I really don’t care whether you believe what you have just read or not. If you do, you should feel compelled to forward it to everyone you know. If you feel this to be unimportant just deleted it as trash. Thanks Bob, I decided to share it.

WAKE UP AMERICA!

Looking back over my nearly 85 years gives me more American history to remember than most. Political history is distorted, hidden, misrepresented and protected by both individuals and the government. Our government uses security reasons to hide facts that have no justification other than to protect both individuals and agency failures. Watching the facts currently being made public against Dennis Hastert are a perfect example to support my thesis. To further protect someone from being exposed the Justice Department is now trying to hide reasons to likely protect some other political or governmental agency from being exposed.

When you add the bias, distortion and sensationalism that the printed and visual media publishes to hide the truth Americans today are just brainwashed with propaganda. Watching this happen is what motivated me to devote what life I have left writing and sharing what I have observed. I do use the printed media articles and material shared with me by friends to publish some articles.

Many people use and suggest that I use Snopes to check authenticity. Most of my critics are not seeking the truth they just want to find something wrong with anything that offends them. Snopes has no way to see if a fact is hidden, distorted or falsified by the government. If they think something is an urban legend, folklore, myths, rumors or mis-information, they can say anything they desire without oversight. Snipes is the most Progressive-Liberal organization in American history. If you disagree check where they get their financing. There is no agency or publication in America that has access to government secrets. I trust my friends, other blogs and my own memory of facts far more than any politically funded and slanted source.

Now let me use my memory and some actual facts to predict the Presidential election in 2016. I have been wrong at times and I hope my prognosis is wrong this time. America needs to stop the race to socialize our Republic. When you have a proven communist, Hillary Clinton, along with an admitted Socialist, Bernie Sanders as the front runners to be the Democratic Party candidate for President their mission is quite clear to anyone. The national media will continue to hide, distort, and blindly support the Democratic candidate as always.

Sadly women will strongly support any female chosen as they feel it’s time for a woman President no matter what will happen. I have no opposition to a female President and I feel like the bumper sticker on my car. It has a picture of Hillary Clinton with the following verbiage, “Life is a Bitch, Don’t Elect One”. I you want some I can tell you where to buy them.

Our over 40,000,000 welfare army which includes illegals, dead, and fictitious voters will never vote for someone who insist they work for their handouts. I lived in the CCC and WPA years that actually did help build and repair infrastructure projects. Our current President insist he needs billions of tax dollars to just repair the infrastructure when all he has to do is make the able people on welfare and fake disability get off their butt and go to work.

If we could create jobs instead of gerrymander the unemployment statistics to hide facts we might not have as many in prisons. In fact, if we just made the army of those in prisons actually work on civic improvements nothing but good would happen. If Joe Arpaio was President Inmates would not enjoy prison life. Today, life in most prisons is an improvement for some who are mistreated, ignored or abused. When I was young we were encouraged to avoid breaking the law as prisons were not country clubs like some are today. Fact, the Texas prison system is the largest school district in the state. Why don’t we educate kids before they break the law. You can get a PhD in the Texas prison system, free.   

If she keeps her mouth closed, avoids any debate involving her government service, another woman fails to challenger her or the Republicans don’t nominate a woman, Hillary Clinton will be our next President. Now let me describe the reasons for my prognosis.

The Republican Party will not nominate a woman or a true conservative candidate. They have a well-qualified female in Carly Fiorina, they have a 100% true conservative in Ted Cruz and they have a 100% Libertarian in Rand Paul. In-between they have so many Republican-in-Name-Only (RINOS) that will distort the scene and they, assisted by the media, will defeat themselves. We also have a conservative African American in Dr. Ben Carson who impresses me. It also appears that one proven leader, Donald Trump hopefully will announce his candidacy fast. In my opinion the only two who have the will to downsize and the leadership competency to change the runaway government is Cruz or Trump. If the Republicans nominate either one it will be earth shaking evidence they truly desire to win. Will this happen, “NO”?

The biased media, including Fox News, has announced debate rules for the Republican candidates using distortion, manipulation and creative ways to control your mind. They will use polling data to limit who you will hear and the poll data is as phony as a three dollar bill with Bill Clinton’s picture. Questions in any poll can control information with greater distorted accuracy than the testimony we have watched from the IRS and Hillary before Congress. President Obama, IRS, EPA and the Justice Department have taken more liberty with the truth than anyone in America’s history. Poor old Nixon erased a few minutes of an unlawful action but Hillary and the Obama administration has taken lying and destroying government documents to a totally new level.

We will have to suffer through a barrage of debates and the Republicans will nominate a wishy-washy RINO to represent the Party again. Even then the Republicans could win over Hillary Clinton if enough American independent voters like myself really desire to stop the attack on destroying our individual freedoms. Will this happen, “NO”? Save a copy of this article to review on November 4th 2016 after the elections.

Rand Paul knows that he will never win the nomination and he is building up the same following that supported his father Ron Paul. When he loses the Republican nomination he will announce that he will run as the Libertarian party candidate just like his father has done three times. His dividing the Republican vote like Ross Perot did in the 1992 election will assure that another Clinton will be President. Perot is the reason Bill Clinton won the Presidency and Rand Paul will be the reason Hillary Clinton will be our next President. November 4th 2016 will be the saddest day of my life if I am still here.

My kids and grandkids will not enjoy the freedoms I enjoyed. The freedom to express opinions like I have done will disappear along with all personal weapons. Ladies, I hope you will be permitted to wear designer Burkas. Female voters are being led to the slaughter like the rats that followed the Pied Piper into the sea.   

Wake up America!   C Brewer      

SNOPES NO MORE!

My friend Jim Heck sent me this message and it should be seen by the world. I have found similar problems with messages I have forwarded. No one wants to share anything that is not factual or true but when the agency that promotes unbiased reviews if politically slanted we are in trouble. I try my best to make sure things I share are valid but I have never trusted Snopes as I know this bias existed long before Kegan was appointed by Obama and approved by the Democrats in Congress to re-write the Constitution.

C Brewer

Many of the email’s that I have sent or forwarded that had any anti Obama in it were negated by Snopes. I thought that was odd.

Snopes is heavily financed by George Soros, a big time supporter of Obama and many other left wing organizations! In our Search for the truth department, we find what I have suspected on many occasions.

Went to Snopes to check something about the dockets of the new Supreme Court Justice, Elena Kagan, who Obama appointed. Snopes said the email was false and there were no such dockets. So I Googled the Supreme Court, typed in Obama-Kagan, and guess what?

Yep, you got it; Snopes lied!

Every one of those dockets are there. So here is what I wrote to Snopes:

Referencing the article about Elana Kagan and Barak Obama dockets:

The information you have posted stating that there were no such cases as claimed and the examples you gave are blatantly false. I went directly to the Supreme Courts website, typed in Obama Kagan and immediately came up with all of the dockets that the article made reference to. I have long suspected that you really slant things but this was really shocking. Thank You. I hope you will be much more truthful in the future, but I doubt it.

That being said, I’ll bet you didn’t know this.

Kagan was representing Obama in all the petitions to prove his citizenship. Folks, this is really ugly. Chicago Politics at its best and the beat goes on and on and on. Once again the US Senate sold us out!

Now we know why Obama nominated Elana Kagan for the Supreme Court. Pull up the Supreme Courts website, go to the docket and search for Obama. She was the Solicitor General for all the suits against him filed with the Supreme Court to show proof of natural born citizenship. He owed her big time. All of the requests were denied of course. They were never heard. It just keeps getting deeper and deeper, doesn’t it? The American people mean nothing any longer. It’s all about payback time for those who compromised themselves to elect someone who really has no true right to even be there.

Here are some websites of the Supreme Court Docket: You can look up some of these hearings and guess what? Elana Kagan is the attorney representing Obama!

Check out these examples:

SCARY GOVERNMENT OPERATIONS!

WAKE UP AMERICA!

I received this in an “E” mail and feel better posting it as a public service to a larger possible reader base. I want to thank Peter Forrest for sending this to me. I did some minor editing to shorten it and pray more Americans will read and understand how severe our current government is totally out of control. Our government has grown so large it can’t even communicate  with itself. C Brewer

Read all the way to the end and please develop a plan with your family. Many in the US no longer have a “land line” and only use cell phones. Be aware that the government can cut all cell phone service in an instance! This capability is not new it is just not widely known America!

Most American don’t know who Juval Aviv is? He was Golda Meir’s bodyguard and the Israeli Agent upon whom the movie ‘Munich’ was based. Golda Meir appointed him to track down and bring to justice the Palestinian terrorists who took the Israeli athletes hostage and killed them during the Munich Olympic Games.

In a lecture in New York City a few weeks ago, Aviv shared information that EVERY American needs to know, but that our government has not yet shared with us.

· Aviv predicted the London subway bombing on the Bill O’Reilly show on ‘Fox News’, stating publicly that it would happen within a week. At the time, O’Reilly laughed and mocked him, saying that in a week he wanted Aviv back on the show. Unfortunately, within a week the terrorist attack had occurred.

· Aviv also gave intelligence to the Bush Administration about 9/11 a month before it occurred. His report specifically said that they would use planes as bombs and target high profile buildings and monuments. I think we all know what happened, right?

· Congress has since hired Aviv as a security consultant.

Aviv predicts that the next terrorist attack on the U.S. will occur within the next few months. Forget hijacking airplanes, because he says terrorists will NEVER try hijacking a plane again as they know the people on board will never go down quietly again. Aviv says that our airport security is a joke ‘that we have been reactionary’ rather than proactive in developing strategies that are truly effective.

Example 1: An idiot tried to light his shoe on fire, now everyone has to take off their shoes.

Example 2: A group of idiots tried to bring aboard liquid explosives, and now we can’t bring liquids on board.

He says he’s waiting for some suicidal maniac to pour liquid explosive on his underwear; government security will then have us all traveling naked! Last but not least, our airport security looks for metal, but all the new explosives are made of plastic!

Currently, our government only focuses on security when people are heading to the gates. Aviv says that if a terrorist attack targets airports in the future, they will target busy times on the front end of the airport when/where people are checking in. For example, it would be easy for someone to take two suitcases of explosives, walk up to a busy check-in line, ask a person next to them to watch their bags for a minute while they run to the restroom, and then detonate the bags BEFORE security even gets involved. In Israel, security checks bags BEFORE people can even ENTER the airport.

Aviv says the next terrorist attack here in America is imminent and will involve suicide bombers and non-suicide bombers in places where large groups of people congregate, such as Disneyland, Las Vegas casinos, shopping malls, subways in rush hour, train stations, etc., as well as in rural America this time (Wyoming, Montana, etc.). The attack will be characterized by simultaneous detonations around the country involving at least 5-8 cities, including rural areas. Aviv says terrorists won’t need to use suicide bombers in many of the larger cities, because at places like the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, they can simply valet park a car loaded with explosives and walk away.

Aviv says all of the above is well-known in intelligence circles, but that our U.S. Government does not want to ‘alarm American citizens’ with the facts. The world, however, is soon going to become ‘a different place’, Aviv says, where issues like ‘global warming’ and political correctness will have become totally irrelevant. On an encouraging note, Aviv says that Americans don’t have to be concerned about being nuked. He says the terrorists who want to destroy America will not use sophisticated weapons. Instead, they like to use suicide, as it’s cheap, it’s easy, and it’s effective and they have an infinite abundance of young, ignorant, fanatic militants more than willing to ‘go see Allah’.

Aviv also says the next level of terrorists over which America should be most concerned will not be coming from abroad. They will instead be ‘home grown’ meaning they will have attended and been educated in our own schools and universities right here in the U.S. These young terrorists will be most dangerous because they will know our language and will fully understand the habits of Americans; but that we Americans won’t know/understand a thing about them.

So, what can America do to protect itself? From an intelligence perspective, Aviv says the U.S. needs to stop relying on satellites and technology for its intelligence. Instead, we need to follow Israel’s, Ireland ‘s and England ‘s hands-on examples of human intelligence, both from an infiltration perspective as well as to trust ‘aware’ citizens to help. We need to engage and educate ourselves as citizens; however, our U.S. Government continues to treat us, its citizens, ‘like babies’. Our government thinks we can’t handle the truth’ and are concerned that we’ll panic if we understand the realities of terrorism. Aviv says this is a deadly mistake.

Aviv recently created/executed a security test for Congress by placing an empty briefcase in five well-traveled spots in five major cities. The results? Not one person called 911 or sought a policeman to check it out. In fact, in Chicago, someone tried to steal the briefcase!

In comparison, Aviv says that citizens of Israel are so well ‘trained’ that an unattended bag or package would be reported in seconds by citizen(s) who know to publicly shout, ‘Unattended Bag!’ The area would be quickly & calmly cleared by the citizens themselves. But, unfortunately, America hasn’t been ‘hurt enough’ yet by terrorism for their government to fully understand the need to educate its citizens or for the government to understand that it’s the citizens who are, inevitably, the best first-line of defense against terrorism.

Aviv also was concerned about the high number of children who were in preschool and kindergarten after 9/11 , children who were basically ‘lost’ without parents being able to pick them up, and schools that had no plan in place to best care for the students until their parents could get there. (In New York City, in some cases this was days!) He stresses the importance of having a plan that’s agreed upon within your family, to respond to in the event of a terrorist emergency. He urges parents to contact their children’s schools and demand that the schools, too, develop plans of actions, as they do in Israel. He says we should all have a plan that is easy enough for even our youngest children to remember and follow.

Does your family know what to do if you can’t contact one another by phone? Where would you gather in an emergency? Aviv says that the U.S. Government has in force a plan that, in the event of another terrorist attack, will immediately cut-off EVERYONE’s ability to use cell phones, as this is the preferred communication source used by terrorists and is often the way that their bombs are detonated. How will you communicate with your loved ones in the event you cannot use phones, internet? Bottom line, you need to have a plan!

If you believe what you have just read, then you must feel compelled to send it to every concerned parent or guardian, grandparents, uncles, aunts, whatever and whomever. Nothing will happen if you choose not to do so, but in the event it does happen, I promise this particular message will haunt you. Don’t be in the category of saying, “I should have sent this to…”, but I didn’t believe it and just ignored it as so much trash.

ANON

I will probably get comments that Snopes says this is hogwash. The government controls Snopes and the media and neither are reliable for the truth. Regardless every family needs a plan on how to keep in contact when, not if, attacks on Americans increase. CB
