The Common Sense Show
by Dave Hodges
America’s southern border has disintegrated, Russia and NATO are mobilizing in and around Ukraine in what could be the beginning of World War III, our economy is one slight push from free fall, we have foreign troops, who have promised us harm, training on our soil. And we have massive military movements all around our country in support of Jade Helm. Our skies are filled with attack helicopters. Our train tracks are increasingly carrying military equipment all around the country. We cannot turn on our televisions and be assured that our children will not see reports about Jade Helm because the Mainstream Media is becoming obsessed with the topic. All of these things are on the short list of challenges presented to inhabitants of America by the New World Order and many parents are finding it difficult to shield their children from the truth. You can always unplug the television and change the subject. However, when the following scenes begin to take place with greater frequency over the next several weeks, what will you tell your children about Jade Helm and the New World Order?
At the end of the day, the biggest question is, WHAT DO WE TELL OUR CHILDREN ABOUT JADE HELM AND THE NEW WORLD ORDER AND WHEN DO WE TELL THEM?
Do we tell our children about Jade Helm after Special Forces are rapelling from helicopters into our communities as they practice their extraction drills which could go live at any moment?
Do we wait until we see armored vehicles like we did in a small town in New Hampshire this past Wednesday? Or do you wait until you are sitting at a railroad crossing and see a two mile long train filled with nothing but military equipment?
And God forbid that you and your children are out on a Friday night and are confronted with the horror of citizens being marched into detention while under guard by U.S. troops like we see here on Friday, March 27, 2015 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. What will you tell them then?
No Blueprint for Parenting
When I became a parent, I mistakenly thought that I would raise my son just like my parents raised me. My parents instilled in me a fundamental respect for authority, how to honor the great traditions of our country and how to work hard to get what I wanted out of life. I grew up loving the ideals of our country, the freedom and the opportunity. As a result, I have lived a good and prosperous life. I give thanks to my parents and to God everyday for my good fortune. However, I have learned that I was not fully prepared to be a parent because I do not know how to teach my 14 year old son about living under tyranny that will accompany Jade Helm on behalf of the New World Order.
The Republic Is Dead, Long Live the Republic
The America we knew is dead and gone and is running solely on momentum. Are any of you asking the same question that I am about how we tell our teenage children that they live under a hopelessly corrupt government and they are making plans to fully enslave all of us under REX 84, FEMA Camps, NDAA, and now Jade Helm? Do we teach our children to never criticize the government because free speech has been criminalized as an act of terrorism? How do we provide our children hope that if they work hard and go to college, that they will have a good life? And even if our kids graduate from college, most won’t find job when they get out of school and even if they do find work in their field, they will be debt slaves because of the cost of higher education. How do we encourage our children to learn the lessons of civics when we fully know that our vote, on a national level, does not make a darn bit of difference and that the Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, et al., are all bought and paid for? How do we teach our children that our brave men and women who serve in the military have been turned into pawns of corporate greed and subsequent bankster-inspired imperialism? How do we prepare to raise our children in a decadent society which dishonors the very Christian principles that our country was founded upon?
Feeling Inadequate As a Father
In my work as a writer and a broadcaster in the Independent Media, I know all too well that the potential dangers that I face in my attempts to reveal the truth about the lawlessness and abject criminality of so many in power. Hastings and Breitbart remind all of us that we take significant risks to do what we do. I decided several years ago that I was willing to take the risk as are so many of my media colleagues. However, I have discovered that I was unprepared to be a father to a child who is growing up in a time of unprecedented corporate and government criminality. Do you realize that our children are living under a government that has forsaken due process and tortures people that they disagree with, under the NDAA, and this is only what is openly admitted to! If we treated our children like the government treats us, we would all be put in jail for neglect and child abuse. How do I teach my son to develop a fundamental respect for many of our political and corporate leaders who have no moral compass?
The Questions a Parent Cannot Answer
My son is now asking questions befitting an adult perspective of our present political and economic situation. I am not bashful about identifying the misdeeds of our government when I am writing or broadcasting. Also, I know that I have the intellectual capacity to explain to my son how bad things have become in terms he can understand. However, I have found that I am lacking the skill and knowledge to explain to my son just how bad things are without taking away his hope for the future. Although I constantly say that I am fighting for our children’s future, I have kept my son as separate as I can from my work in the media. It is not something that I have tried to share with him because I do not want him to become cynical. Yet, I know that there comes the day when all parents realize that we have to tell our children that there is no Santa Claus and that is not him coming down the chimney at 3AM.
I grew up in an America which was a republic interspersed with some corruption. Today’s America is a corporate criminal enterprise where there are no rules for the elite and the constitutional precepts underlying our laws are on life support. Subsequently my son 14 year old son is growing up in a far different America than I did and to hear him talk about his future hopes and fears reflects these fundamental changes that we have experienced as a country.
What Will You Tell Your Children?
When my son was eight years old, I took him to Washington D.C. (pictured to the right) and we tried to instill in him an ongoing appreciation of American traditions.
At the time of the trip, six years ago, I still held out faint hope we could restore our Republic and Washington D.C. could stop being referred to as the District of Criminals. After all, children need to be worried about the piano lessons, their sports teams, their first crush, their schooling, they do not need to be burdened with dealing with geopolitical issues stemming from the bankers trying to run this planet. Yet, our children’s lives are increasingly being dominated by this march towards economic and political totalitarianism, and in the upcoming weeks, Jade Helm will force parents to answer some very uncomfortable questions from their children as we witness the tyranny of Jade Helm in an up close and personal manner.
If you are awake as to what is going on and you have children, you will one day be forced to answer the questions that your children ask about the world that they live in. And for the life of me, I do not know how to tell my child how to live in the New World Order. Do you?
If the globalists are able to completely tighten the noose of Jade Helm tyranny around our collective necks, your children may ask you one day “Mommy and Daddy, what did you do to try and stop the bad people from hurting us”?
