Fear Porn is Big Business With No Accountability: Are Patriots Exploiting Other Patriots?
Recently a patriot writer I respect, Biernutz_71, made a surprising statement on his substack.
I am pivoting away from Devolution entirely...
[due to] fatal and misleading flaws in the Devolution theory
that have been known by me for a while...
However, there is an unwillingness
by some of the bigger names in the community
to pivot towards truth when their theory is easily proven in error.
Devolution is now a source of big money for some.
Many have quit their jobs and are supported by patriots like you and I.
I can't get his words out of my head! The "Devolution" thing is neither here nor there to me as I never fully understood what "devolution" meant anyways. It's like mathematics; I just don't get it! I'm like Ted Baxter on The Mary Tyler Moore Show who can't understand numbers outside the context of money.
When Biernutz said, "big money," it "clicked" with a pet peeve I've been toting around for ten long years. In the words of You Can't Take It With You: "The people who commercialize on fear...they scare you to death so they can sell you something..."
Isn't that exactly what some patriots are doing to other patriots!?! They're making a killing at it with no accountability when their dire fear mongering predictions don't come to pass. Even if they realize they're in the wrong, they won't admit it to you for fear of losing their bread-and-butter!
"Holy crap!" my husband exclaimed.
"What!? What's going on?" I responded, peering over his shoulder at the flight tracking map on his screen.
"Usually there are no more than three military refueling tankers flying over the United States on any given night. I got to ride on one when I was a teen in Civil Air Patrol," he said. "But look! Tonight there are eleven refueling tankers in the air simultaneously. What the hell is going on!?!"
If military air traffic gets your motor going, your go-to guy is "MonkeyWerx" aka "MilSpecOpsMonkey." His profile describes him as a "Christian, Prayer Warrior, For God and Country, USAF Spec Ops Veteran, Texan, Aerospace and Defense Guru" and more specifically, "third generation military veteran who has spent more than thirty years in the aerospace and defense industry working on advanced weapons programs." That's good enough for me.
For the past three years, MonkeyWerx has been following military air traffic above the US, writing about it and making YouTube videos once a week...until now. Now he makes videos almost daily because there's just so damn much going on!
Military air traffic above the continental United States has quadrupled (at least!) since MonkeyWerx started his YouTube channel and he's quick to remind us that's only the air traffic we're allowed to see. The increase can't be simply explained away by bringing our men and women in uniform home from overseas so the question on everyone's lips is, "What the *$&@%!$# is going on!?!"
