America Did Not Ask for This War???

Robert L. Johnson 2006-09-14 16:00
Exclusive to STR September 15, 2006 Governments are based on lies. They need liars to fill the offices of their various branches of government in order to promote the government lies. To add yet another tragically comic layer of lies to government, these government liars are called 'public servants'! One great example of a government liar is US President George W. Bush.
What Strike The Root Does and Means

Robert L. Johnson 2006-08-11 16:00
Exclusive to STR September 8, 2006 Governments seek and maintain power over people. That is why they exist. History has only shown a very few examples of governments that were temporarily beneficial to the people. The vast overwhelming majority of governments throughout history, including every government on the face of the Earth today, exist only to use people as a means of governmental...

Exclusive to STR In this age of political correctness based on raw fear, STR smashes through the BS, and by doing so undermines the trend towards sacrificing truth for political correctness because its actions destroy, or at least weakens, the fear in many people.

What's Behind the Current Middle East War?
0
Robert L. Johnson 2006-07-18 16:00
Exclusive to STR When Hamas captured the Israeli soldier and demanded a prisoner exchange with the Israelis, that was pretty much standard operating procedure in Israel's war against the Palestinians. The government of Israel holds approximately 10,000 Palestinian men, women and children hostage in their concentration camps. They have in the past exchanged Palestinian people they were holding...

Lies + Half Truths = Presidential Speech
0
Robert L. Johnson 2005-10-12 16:00
Exclusive to STR When President Bush recently made a speech promoting the war in Iraq and the war against Osama bin Laden, he, as government bureaucrats and plutocrats habitually do, repeatedly lied. Just as he and his fellow plutocrats and career governmental officials gave speeches packed full of lies and half-truths to get the unnecessary war started in Iraq over three long years ago, so Bush...
Pat Robertson and the Biblical Mind
0
Robert L. Johnson 2005-08-25 16:00
The televangelist Marion 'Pat' Robertson's statement that the US government should assassinate the President of Venezuela (Hugo Chavez) is receiving a lot of media coverage. Comedians feel it is a real godsend. But his statement is very revealing of his mindset and his priorities. It also seems to have Biblical roots, although it does not call for the rampant and wholesale violence and brutality...
The Big Lie--They're Fighting for Our Freedom
0
Robert L. Johnson 2005-08-23 16:00
Listening to Bush supporters who have come out to oppose Camp Casey and its creator, Cindy Sheehan, it becomes painfully obvious how well a big lie really works on the minds of millions. Some of them have lost family members in the unnecessary war in Iraq that the neocons and Bush started. They can't bring themselves to see reality--that their loved ones did not die for American freedom but were...
The U.S. Government's Betrayal of Its Military
0
Robert L. Johnson 2005-06-07 16:00
The government is a collection composed almost exclusively of self-serving political careerists and bureaucratic careerists. They live not for liberty and justice or for doing what is right, but for power and greed. To achieve their lowly and selfish goals they must please the powers that be. One way to learn who those powers are is to see who the politicians are most concerned with pleasing...
A Memorial Day Gift of Reality
0
Robert L. Johnson 2005-05-31 16:00
Watching the news yesterday and hearing from the politicians, veterans, and the person on the street that Memorial Day is to show thanks to all the US service men and women who gave their lives so we can be free, I wondered how they can actually believe that. And I wonder how many of the fallen believed they were fighting so Americans can be free.
A Government Lie in the Making

Robert L. Johnson 2005-05-25 16:00
About the only thing governments produce more often than wars and debt are lies. Right now, you can witness the birth of a government lie in the making!
Accountability Should Be Applied to Government and Religion
0
Robert L. Johnson 2005-04-05 16:00
What if the governments and religions of the word were held accountable for what their officials say and claim? There's no telling where it would lead. Perhaps it would lead to less government and more progress, and less fear and superstition and more God-given reason.
Wolfowitz and the World Bank
0
Robert L. Johnson 2005-03-30 16:00
Paul Wolfowitz is a neoconservative. Neocons are centered and focused on achieving their plan. Their plan consists of shaping a new world order based on the Hebrew Bible. If you've read the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, you know it's based on promoting the Jews to the front of the line at the expense of the Gentiles/Goyim.
Schiavo Case Shows the Emptiness of Revealed Religion
0
Robert L. Johnson 2005-03-23 17:00
With the US government giving literally billions of tax dollars to the 'revealed' religions through their faith-based scam, it's important that American taxpayers know something about the happy recipients of this financial bonanza and the claims they make.
State and Religious Child Abuse
0
Robert L. Johnson 2005-03-15 17:00
Most people assume government protects children. And, most people assume religion is also a source of protection for children. Most people are wrong on both counts, especially when it comes to the unholy union of government and religion.
The Evils of Democracy
0
Robert L. Johnson 2005-03-10 17:00
Recent events in Lebanon have shown the folly of democracy. When the anti-Syrian forces held huge street demonstrations against the pro-Syrian Lebanese government, the pro-Syrian Prime Minister resigned. When the pro-Syrian crowds demonstrating in the streets a week later were much larger than the anti-Syrian crowds, the Prime Minister was reappointed. There's no reason or logic to it, just...
To Die in Vain
0
Robert L. Johnson 2005-01-30 17:00
Most people realize that life is an important gift. It is the essential gift. It should not be taken lightly. It should be lived to the fullest possible extent, and should only be risked and sacrificed for a valid, meaningful reason. The recent death of Navy Corpsman John Daniel House reveals that some of the soldiers, sailors and Marines who are currently fighting, being wounded, and dying in...
George W. Bush and Treason
0
Robert L. Johnson 2005-01-24 17:00
George W. Bush likes to surround himself with patriotic trappings. He's big on talking, to the best of his very limited ability, about God, country, and values. He enjoys playing dress-up as various icons of Americana, like a fighter pilot or a cowboy. But behind this empty facade of being an American patriot, I believe, is treason. Treason to America and her people.
The Fundamental Flaw of the Neocons
0
Robert L. Johnson 2005-01-20 17:00
War is bad. Lots and lots of innocent and great people get horribly hurt and killed. The survivors are psychologically mutilated for the rest of their lives. These are probably some of the reasons George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and the key neocons have successfully avoided being in one themselves. But what element is in the neoconservative worldview that makes them so cavalier and ready to...
Making Sense of Bush, Brothels and the Bible
0
Robert L. Johnson 2005-01-04 17:00
Churchill County, Nevada came out strong in this past election for both reelecting George W. Bush and for keeping its brothels legal. To many, this seems like a contradiction. Voters who took part in this past election made a point of stressing how important values are to them. President Bush, who says his favorite book is the Bible and that he reads it daily, appealed to voters because he...
Bush Abuses the Military
0
Robert L. Johnson 2005-01-04 17:00
The spoiled little rich kid, George W. Bush, took advantage of the US military when he started the war in Iraq. It goes beyond reason to believe that George and his buddies in government, 'public servants' as they like to call themselves, didn't know they were lying to the American people and the world when they told their tall tales to the public about mushroom clouds, stockpiles of the world's...
Why Deism and Corrupt Government Don"t Mix
10
Robert L. Johnson 2004-12-16 17:00
It's been my experience when talking to people about religion, that the overwhelming majority of them have never heard of Deism. Hopefully, with the recent conversion of world-famous philosopher and atheist, Antony Flew, to Deism, this will begin to change. The lack of knowledge of Deism is highly unusual given the strong role Deism has played in the history of Europe and America. But, as FDR is...
FDR Turned a Blind Eye to the Holocaust

Robert L. Johnson 2010-11-19 04:00
Column by Robert Johnson. Exclusive to STR November 16, 2010 marked the 77th anniversary of Franklin D. Roosevelt and the United States government turning a blind eye towards the Holocaust of the Ukrainian people. On November 16, 1933, the United States formally recognized the Soviet Union for the first time with an official pact.   The pact was brought about not by Roosevelt negotiating...
Democrats Demonstrate Why Voting Is a Fraud
10
Robert L. Johnson 2012-09-11 00:00
Column by Robert Johnson. Exclusive to STR This past Wednesday, September 5, 2012, is a day that should live on as a day of true education. For on that day the Democratic Party let all the world see, and it was preserved on video for posterity to witness and learn from, what a truly senseless and foolish act voting is. Thank you, Dems!   The powerful and clear lesson came as Los Angeles...
C.S. Lewis Called for a Christian Theocracy
9.33333
Robert L. Johnson 2010-09-09 03:00
By Robert L. Johnson.   Exclusive to STR   After reading articles by David J. Theroux of the C.S. Lewis Society which had links at www.strike-the-root.com and which paint the Christian apologist C.S. Lewis as a freedom loving libertarian, I had a hard time reconciling what little I do clearly know of Lewis with the claims made by Theroux. The only book I’ve read that Lewis wrote...
Why 'The Greatest Generation'?
9
Robert L. Johnson 2010-01-12 04:00
Exclusive to STR   Tom Brokaw coined the phrase “the Greatest Generation” for those Americans who lived through the Great Depression of the 1930s and who went on to fight, kill and die in World War II. You have to ask yourself why a key spokesman for the established government-friendly (to say the least) mainstream media would hold these Americans in such high regard.  ...
The Biblical Roots of the “Lunatic State of Israel”
9
Robert L. Johnson 2010-06-14 03:00
Exclusive to STR     The courageous Jew Norm Finkelstein recently described the Jewish state of Israel as a “lunatic state.” He made this statement during an interview regarding the slaughter of nine volunteers who were murdered by the Israeli Occupation Forces while trying to break Israel’s illegal and anti-human blockade of Gaza. The nine people murdered in the...
Do We Owe Gratitude to American Veterans For Having Fought in Iraq?
9
Robert L. Johnson 2013-03-22 05:56
Column by Robert L. Johnson. Exclusive to STR U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel marked the 10th anniversary of the U.S. war against Iraq by saying, “Every one of the more than one million service members that deployed to Iraq, often for multiple tours of duty, deserves our highest praise and deepest debt of gratitude.” Is Hagel correct? Do the American people owe the veterans of...
Obama Takes a Double Bitch Slap from Israel
8
Robert L. Johnson 2010-05-10 03:00
Exclusive to STR   Bitch slap number one: U.S. Vice President Joe Biden is in Israel trying to restart the Palestinian/Israeli peace talks. While in Israel the Israeli government announces its plan to build 1,600 apartments for Jews in Palestinian East Jerusalem. This allegedly outrages Biden and the Obama administration. How can they appear to be working for peace in the Middle East when...
Voting: Stupid Is As Stupid Does
8
Robert L. Johnson 2010-07-21 03:00
By Robert L. Johnson.   Exclusive to STR   A recent ABC News/Washington Post poll shows that 51 percent of the voting cattle are upset with Obama and the Democrats. Their solution is to replace the Democrats with Republicans! This is similar to actual beef cattle preferring Burger King to McDonalds. Either way, the cattle lose.   The Republicans, who the voting cattle are taking a...
Governor of Virginia Embraces Romans 13:1-7

Robert L. Johnson 2010-01-29 04:00
 Exclusive to STR   Bob McDonnell, Virginia’s newly elected governor and graduate of televangelist Pat Robertson’s RegentUniversity, said at a prayer breakfast before his inauguration that he looks at his political career and being governor as a ministry.  He also said, “For a ruler to be just and to be fair and to have the wisdom needed in order to do right for...
