Pig Peril: the Real Threat to America!

You may have seen the scary story in The Hill by James Woolsey and Peter Pry, How North Korea could kill 90 percent of Americans

Frightening eh?  Especially the bit about  ‘Why do the press and public officials ignore or under-report these facts?’  Note that Woolsey is a former Director of the CIA, the Central Intelligence Agency. Intelligence, as in really smart and CIA, as in fiendishly devious. Or perhaps not smart, but certainly devious.

Devious?  Yeah, because they are not telling us the real story.

The clever folks at MSN put their fingers on it. MSN, as in Microsoft, as in Vista, as in Windows 7, as in really smart. Anyway, they highlighted the danger:

…which reminded Americans that North Korea could in theory use a satellite weapon to send an electromagnetic pulse over the United States, triggering widespread blackouts and ultimately, societal collapse.

OK, think about that ‘in theory’ and think of pig.

Why pig?

Well there are hundreds of millions of pigs. A lot of them in Russia. None in Israel or Saudi Arabia. What does that tell us?  You know people by the friends they keep. Or in this case animals.

OK, so the North Koreans don’t like us. There are lots of maladjusted people in the world like them. OK, so we killed 2 million, 3 million of them in the 1950s, but gooks, who’s counting? The Germans, the Japanese, the Vietnamese, they got over our killing them and moved on, so if the Koreans can’t do that it says something about them, right? OK, then there’s our sanctions causing malnutrition in their children. So they grow up stunted, if they grow up, but is that the end of the world? Means they can live in smaller houses and save money.

But pigs. Now that’s where real hatred lies. Think bacon, think ham, think pork crackling – now that gets me hungry. Anyway, pigs don’t like us. Pigs detest us.  Pigs hate us. Perhaps they’re envious of our freedom and democracy, or perhaps they just don’t like being slaughtered and eaten, who knows?

Now let’s go back to the folks at MSN, and instead of being side-tracked by this nonsense about North Koreans, think of the real enemy.

Woolsey and Fry, and MSN, tell us that, in theory, the North Koreans could kill 90% of us.

They’re right, but they’re pointing in the wrong direction

In theory, if they mastered the technology, pigs could fly.

And if they could fly, who would they attack?

Us, of course

And the North Koreans?  Only 25 million of them and we know where they live. And we have thousands of times more missiles and nuclear weapons than they could possibly have. And aircraft carriers, and B-52s, and B-1s, and F-22s and F-35s – after all those billions they must be useful for something. And all those bases in South Korea and Japan.

North Korea is not a problem, but pigs are a different matter. Sly, intelligent, tasty (sorry, slip of the tongue), and cunning. Oh, so cunning.

So why do the press and public officials ignore this clear and present danger? Are they in the pay of Putin (and how many pigs does he own?).

And it’s not merely a matter of foreign pigs. There are millions and millions of pigs here in the US. How many of them are Russian agents? Or Chinese?  If you’ve ever been to a Chinese restaurant you’ll realize that the Chinese have a love affair with pigs. And probably that love is reciprocated and many of what we fondly think of as our American pigs are really controlled from Beijing

So pigs here in America and pigs around the world pose an existential threat to our national security, our freedoms, our values, all that we hold dear.

As soon as they master the technology, which in theory they can

And when pigs can fly, we will face a frightening danger.

Why do our media and our public officials ignore it?  Is this because the highest in the land are secret porcinists?  Have you wondered why Barack Obama, born to a Muslim father became a Christian? Is that suspicious or is that suspicious? Was it to do with his love of pig? And have you seen a photograph of Donald Trump recently?

Wake up America, the pig peril is nigh!
