  1. What will it take for journalists and the public to finally learn the truth about JFK's crucial decision in 1963 to get out of Vietnam, and the reversal of that decision after November 22, 1963? It's a critical historical fact relating to JFK's assassination and the machinations of the U.S. military-industrial complex. A similar question is, "What will it take for the public to finally learn the truth about our working relationship with Osama Bin Laden in Afghanistan, the Balkans, and beyond? Most people seem to know that Brzezinski and the CIA trained and supported Bin Laden and his "Al Qaeda" mujaheddin in the Soviet Afghan War. Fewer know about Bin Laden's involvement with the U.S. supported Izetbegovic government in Sarajevo during the Bosnian civil war, and with the KLA in Kosovo in the 1990s. (Former U.S. War College staffer John Schindler wrote an interesting book on the subject called, Unholy Terror.) Fewer still know that Bin Laden issued statements to journalists at Al Jazeera and in Pakistan shortly after 9/11 disavowing any involvement in the 9/11 op-- or that the video and audio tapes broadcast in the U.S. mainstream media, in which Bin Laden allegedly claimed responsibility for 9/11, were crude forgeries and mis-translations. Sibel Edmonds, the former FBI translator, (fluent in Turkish, Farsi, and Azerbaijani) has also claimed that Bin Laden was still working for the CIA during and after 9/11. (Classified Woman.) Former FBI Director Robert Mueller later told Congress that the FBI "never found a single scrap of paper" linking Bin Laden to the 9/11 attacks. And Dick Cheney told the 9/11 Commission that evidence linking Bin Laden to 9/11 had "never been forthcoming."
  2. That's rich, coming from a state where the Koch brothers bribed former Governor Rick Scott to ban any mention of "climate change" by state employees. 🤥
  3. Indeed. Condoleeza Rice's close colleague, Phillip Zelikow, is an interesting case. His real expertise has to do with crafting and propagating public myths relating to disasters, which is precisely what he did with his 9/11 Commission Report. The parallels with the Warren Commission Report are striking-- e.g., drafting a preconceived narrative and assiduously ignoring and filtering out all of the contrary evidence. As for Henry Kissinger, I have noticed a few facts in the public domain about his possible connection to 9/11. 1) After the controversial Bush v. Gore SCOTUS ruling in December of 2000, Kissinger curiously said that he "could think of nothing that would improve George W. Bush's popularity more dramatically than a terrorist attack on the U.S." 2) On 9/11, Kissinger appeared on Sky Television in Europe to announce that the 9/11 attacks were most likely perpetrated by Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda. Something had to be done about "terrorism," etc. 3) Kissinger & Associates CEO, L. Paul Bremer, appeared on CNN television in Manhattan, within an hour of the attack on the World Trade Center, and announced that the 9/11 attack on the WTC was most likely perpetrated by Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda. Something had to be done about "terrorism," etc. (BTW, Paul Bremer looked remarkable calm on CNN for a guy working in an office where 300 of his Marsh & McLennan colleagues had just been violently killed by a crashing plane! The nose cone of the first plane to hit the WTC struck precisely at L. Paul Bremer's Marsh & McLennan office in the WTC.) Bremer was later appointed by Bush and Rumsfeld, in May of 2004, as the military governor of occupied Iraq in charge of implementing Rumsfeld's disastrous de-Baathification policy. 4) Under mounting pressure to finally conduct an investigation of 9/11, George W. Bush asked Henry Kissinger to chair a 9/11 Commission.
  4. Mark, The NIST report is not accepted science. In fact, it has been thoroughly debunked. Read the scientific references I posted for you (above.) It's not a matter of opinion or mainstream media spin (and truly astonishing censorship.) It's a matter of scientific fact.
  5. I'm glad to hear that the second part of JFK Revisited, apparently, focuses on Deep State and foreign policy motives for killing JFK. That, to me, reflects the essence of the "Destiny Betrayed" concept-- i.e., that JFK's murder was a betrayal of a more just and peaceful destiny for humanity. I don't know the details, but I wish Oliver Stone had entitled the film, Destiny Betrayed, to emphasize that important historical concept. I wonder what percentage of U.S. citizens today even know that JFK fully intended to get out of Vietnam. My hunch is that it's a fairly small percentage.
  6. Meanwhile, Kenneth Starr's ex-mistress is, apparently, spilling the beans about Kavanaugh and his Whitewater mentor.* Let's recall that Brett Kavanaugh played a central role in leaking Kenneth Starr's Whitewater grand jury material about Bill Clinton's private, consensual sex life to the press. More recently, Kavanaugh has strongly opposed the release of any grand jury material from Robert Mueller's Russia-gate investigation. Makes a lot of sense. * https://crooksandliars.com/2021/07/ken-starr-s-ex-mistress-reveals-what "I did not expose myself to that woman"
  7. Mark, You, obviously, haven't studied, or understood, the bona fide scientific research on the 9/11 WTC demolitions. Let's talk about the scientific data after you've actually studied it. Here are some quality references.* Meanwhile, if you're sincerely concerned about censorship in our media, perhaps you can explain to us why the bona fide scientific and forensic evidence about what really happened on 9/11 has been completely blacked out of the U.S. mainstream media for the past 20 years! *https://www.ae911truth.org/evidence/beyond-misinformation https://www.europhysicsnews.org/articles/epn/pdf/2016/04/epn2016474p21.pdf https://www.ae911truth.org/evidence/explosive-features https://www.ae911truth.org/evidence/technical-articles/articles-in-the-journal-of-9-11-studies/419-the-missing-jolt-a-simple-refutation-of-the-nist-bazant-collapse-hypothesis
  8. Mark, Please. Thousands of scientists and engineers who have actually studied the WTC demolitions overwhelmingly reject the NIST report, which was nothing more than an expensive, pseudo-scientific cover up by the Bush-Cheney administration. It was intended to bamboozle people who don't understand basic physics. It's analogous to the Warren Commission's Single Bullet Theory. Are you aware that the Bush-Cheney NIST guys refused to even publish the data they used for the parameters in their bogus computer "simulation" of the WTC demolitions? That they didn't even attempt to explain the observed, symmetrical free fall collapse of WTC7? Instead, they described a possible model for an initial partial upper story collapse-- as if that alone could explain the abrupt demolition of the massive steel sub-structure of the entire building. Look at the GIF (below) of the collapse of WT7. Notice that the distance between the upper floors remains constant as the entire structure descends at the acceleration of gravity! There is no gravitational pancaking of upper floors onto lower floors. It was an expert explosive demolition. Albert Einstein one said, "If you can't explain something straightforwardly, you probably don't understand it." Re-read what I wrote (above) about Newtonian physics and the free fall collapses of WTC1, WTC2, and WTC7. It's not rocket science. Free fall collapse = zero resistance to collapse. Ergo, the massive steel girders were abruptly demolished. And if you study the film, you can easily observe the serial explosions that pulverized the WTC towers. Below: The distance between the upper floors of WTC7 remains constant as the building collapses in a free fall.
  9. Yes, sadly, it's a banner year for Darwin Awards in the U.S. www.newsweek.com/trump-supporter-who-protested-against-vaccinations-dies-covid-19-1611673
  10. Mark, this is pseudo-scientific bunk. If you know anything about Newtonian physics, you will recognize that steel skyscrapers cannot collapse to the ground at near free fall acceleration unless the resistance to gravitational acceleration is zero. So what abruptly eliminated the resistance to free fall collapse of the steel skyscrapers -- i.e., what abruptly demolished the lower steel substructures? The steel substructures of WTC1, WTC2, and WTC7 were expertly demolished by pre-planted explosives on 9/11. In fact, we can clearly see (and hear) the serial explosions on the video and audio recordings of 9/11. This is one of the few subjects where I actually agree with Donald Trump-- and it's a subject that Donald Trump understands very well, because of his experience as a New York real estate developer.
  11. Kirk, Again, the subject of this thread is whether George H.W. Bush and the Company killed the Mockingbird in the 70s. Ulfkotte claims that they didn't. Your Wikipedia stuff has repeatedly changed the subject, which is why it was written. It reminds me of John McAdams & Co. repeatedly calling Fletcher Prouty an Anti-Semitic crackpot, based on Prouty speaking at a Liberty Lobby conference, etc. It was a smokescreen-- a deflection from Prouty's detailed, firsthand accounts of CIA special ops, including evidence of their involvement in JFK's assassination.. And, like Prouty, Ulfkotte has also exposed the CIA-- i.e., their active involvement in the European mainstream media in the 21st century. As for the Wikipedia deflection, I don't know much about Ulfkotte's involvement with critics of Islam in Germany. It sounds kind of Trump-esque to me-- racist paranoia about the Turkish Gastarbeiten and the recent influx of Syrian war refugees from CIA Operation Timber Sycamore. But Ulfkotte is correct about the fact that the Nazis recruited Islamic SS units like the Skanderberg regiment to fight against ethnic Orthodox Christians in the Balkans during WWII-- in Albania, Kosovo, and Bosnia. Ulfkotte was, apparently, a war correspondent and an assistant editor of a major European newspaper for many years. He studied Arabic, and lived in the Middle East during the Iran-Iraq War. So he, obviously, knew a great deal about Islam. I'm skeptical about the claim that he accused Obama of burning Bibles, but I haven't read the book which is the alleged Wikipedia source for the claim. As for Europe's 1,300 year conflict with Islam, it's a complicated, bloody subject that I have studied in considerable depth during the past 20 years. After 9/11, I read Sir Steven Runciman's definitive history of the Crusades, and British/Egyptian historian Bat Ye'or's writings about the history of Islam in the Levant and the Balkans. Another interesting read is U.S. War College Professor John Schindler's account of the CIA's collaboration with Bin Laden and "Al Qaeda" in Bosnia and Kosovo-- Unholy Terror. My take is that the CIA was working with Bin Laden and the Islamic militias in Kosovo and Bosnia to topple Milosevic's communist rump state in Belgrade-- as they had done in Afghanistan against the Soviets. I do still believe that the Bush-Cheney "War on Terror" was mainly predicated on false flag ops vilifying Muslim CIA associates like Bin Laden and his "Al Qaeda" mujaheddin fighters from the Soviet Afghan and Bosnian Wars. But that doesn't mean that the 1,300 year history of Islamic jihad in Europe never happened! I traveled to Istanbul in the summer of 2000, and met the Greek Orthodox Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew at the Phenar. The gate to the Phenar was guarded by a soldier with a machine gun, because the place had been recently fire-bombed by alleged Muslim terrorists. On that same trip, I also attended a Greek Orthodox Church service in Taksim Square -- where the steel doors of the church were immediately chained shut after the liturgy, due to fears of a Muslim terrorist attack. (And, in fact, the Novo Sholom Synagogue across the street from the Orthodox Trinity Cathedral in Galata was bombed shortly after my visit in 2000.)
  12. Benjamin, IMO, there is no credible dissent from the scientific consensus on climate change, but there is an overwhelming amount of industry-funded disinformation on the subject (Heartland Institute, Fox News, etc.) and has been for the past 20 years. The climate change denial propaganda has been motivated entirely by the quest for fossil fuel industry profits, at the expense of the health and survival of the planet and the human race. How can that possibly be ethical? Formally, censoring this kind of destructive oil industry propaganda is analogous to prohibitions against false advertising. The concept is to protect the public from unscrupulous, harmful profiteers. Shouldn't the same ethical principles apply to protecting the citizenry from stochastic terrorism -- e.g., demagoguery that incites violence against minorities and immigrants? And how about disinformation that directly endangers the public health? Should it be permitted?
  13. Those are no brainers, Mark. The bona fide JFKA and 9/11 Truth research is predicated on science-- as in the case of the thousands of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, whose research has been completely blacklisted in the mainstream U.S. media. Conversely, the oil industry propaganda denying climate change is based on the denial of science. I agree with you about the difficulty regarding who the censors are. But, wouldn't you agree that false advertising, in general, needs to be censored? If industry propaganda leads to the destruction of the planet, and the human race, should it not be regulated by sensible laws? Anyone who still believes that unregulated, laissez faire capitalism invariably optimizes the public good has simply not studied history. There is no "invisible hand" protecting the public from unscrupulous profiteers, including media moguls like Rupert Murdoch.
  14. Let me bring up another example of an issue where I believe some degree of "censorship" may be necessary and ethical in the U.S. -- in the public interest. I have already mentioned false advertising, stochastic terrorism, sedition, and public health matters. What about disinformation denying climate change? Fossil fuel industry moguls (Exxon, Koch Industries, Marathon et.al.) have spent hundreds of millions of dollars during the past 20 years on U.S. propaganda denying climate change. It's the main reason that many Americans still deny the scientific consensus about climate change and the role of fossil fuels in accelerating the catastrophe. In a sense, it's false advertising writ large, and should be censored, in the public interest.
  15. Kirk, Geez... Wikipedia? Talk about needing to consider your sources! Have you ever read Wikipedia articles about other Deep State whistleblowers-- e.g., L. Fletcher Prouty, Theirry Meyssan, et.al.? Most of them read like stuff written by John McAdams. Wikipedia used to insist that Fletcher Prouty was a kooky anti-Semitic pilot with delusions of grandeur-- not to be trusted! (They have toned that down recently.) $2 and a Wikipedia article about U.S. intelligence ops can buy me a Cafe Americano at Starbucks. As for Udo Ulfkotte, in reality, he was a Middle East war correspondent and long time journalist for the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. His experiences as a mainstream media journalist, described in detail in Gekaufte Journalisten, directly mirror what Carl Bernstein described about Operation Mockingbird in the 1970s. https://www.amazon.com/Presstitutes-Embedded-Pay-CIA-Confession/dp/1615770178/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=Udo+Ulfkotte&qid=1626966619&sr=8-1 Author Udo Ulfkotte was a respected journalist for 17 years with Germany's newspaper of record, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. He begins this explosive exposé by first owning up to his own career, where he had to sell out to have the job. He then reveals the deceptive tricks and secret networks of power within the media. How perks are used to bribe journalists and opinion makers to twist their reporting. How the tone of corruption is set from the top -- play along or quit. How the long arm of the NATO press office enrolls the media to get Europe to support more foreign wars. Ulfkotte names hundreds of names and gives you a behind-the-scenes look at the organizations that influence the German media with one-sided propaganda, such as The Atlantic Bridge, Trilateral Commission, German Marshall Fund, CFR, and Aspen Institute. He unmasks the intelligence agencies behind these lobbies groups and the propaganda techniques they use, such as US Embassy grants for projects to influence European public opinion Would you be surprised to learn that spies sit and write articles in newspaper editorial offices? Which are then published on op-ed pages under the names of well-known journalists? Or which journalists receive bribes for their reporting? Have you heard how prestigious "journalism prizes" are a reward system for cooperation? Much as "Heroes of Labor" were honored for writing the best communist propaganda in the former East bloc. Seen from the inside, the difference between journalist and propagandist isn't as far as you might like. The elite owners of the media feel it's their right to think for us, and to mold public opinion to their agendas. Their Freedom of the Press is Freedom to Censor the news. Our nation depends on the media to understand our world, just as each one of us depends on our eyes and ears. The media are our senses. When they hide the truth, or lie to us, they put us all in danger. A million people died in Iraq, Libya and Syria because the press didn't just report the news, didn't just lie about the news, but they invented and sold the events that served as pretexts for wars. The author spent years in the Middle East, surviving an attack with chemical weapons supplied by US and German firms. This book is a veteran's guide to the media spider's web. It shows how the system works, sharpens your common sense skepticism, and increases your immunity to the controlled media's attempts to do our thinking for us. You will gain a whole new perspective on media reports. A good idea of how much you can believe the news on TV or the radio: almost nothing. Ulfkotte dissects the German media establishment, which media outlets are owned by political parties, the journalists that are under their influence, and what keeps them there. You will see how whole countries are manipulated – and who is pulling the strings and why. Here is the bad news about the news: our idea of a free press with a broad spectrum of opinion is pure fantasy. Very often, what is called the "news" is simply brainwashing.
  16. Chris, Honestly, I never thought I would see the day when I believed that some degree of censorship might, conceivably, be necessary and ethical in the U.S. -- in the public interest. In recent years, I have seen inflammatory, partisan propaganda in the U.S. mainstream media completely polarize American society. It has also led directly to an increase in hate crimes and, earlier this year, to a violent insurrection against our democratically elected Federal government. I've witnessed the media-induced polarization of our society even in my own extended family, as many Americans have. The problem is multi-determined, but it seems to be partly a result of the abrogation of the Fairness Act in the U.S. in 1988, which required that major media outlets grant equal time to advocates of both sides of politically divisive issues. The last time I traveled in the U.K. (1990) I was very impressed by the quality of the BBC News (including no commercials!) We had nothing comparable in the U.S. then, and things are much worse now. At the very least, I think the U.S. needs to re-implement some version of the Fairness Act.
  17. Kirk, I can't refrain from pointing out that you have repeatedly ducked the Udo Ulfkotte story and book reference on this thread about whether the CIA is still actively involved in our mainstream media. That's sort of like ignoring William Colby's Church Committee testimony and Carl Bernstein's Rolling Stone article while discussing Operation Mockingbird.
  18. Chris, I share everyone's general concerns about the pitfalls of censorship but, to play the Devil's Advocate, are there situations in which censorship might be ethical? 1) False advertising? 2) Preventing stochastic terrorism-- e.g., banning propaganda from demagogues who incite violence against minority groups or immigrants? 3) Banning propaganda that promotes violent insurrections against democracies -- e.g., the Wiemar Republic, January 6th, etc. ?? 4) Banning disinformation that undermines the public health and safety?
  19. In related news... 🤥 Now they've decided to Fauci Their Florida! After promoting his recent line of, "Don't Fauci My Florida," merchandise, Governor Ron DeSantis is now urging Floridians to get vaccinated. https://www.news4jax.com/news/local/2021/07/21/desantis-these-vaccines-are-saving-lives/
  20. Terrific. I'm hoping this will be sold as a DVD/Blu Ray box set with the 2 hour Cannes version and the full 4 hour version.
  21. Russia Today is useful, IMO, for perspectives on the pervasive propaganda in our U.S. mainstream media. But the Kremlin, obviously, has its own pervasive propaganda apparatus, as everyone knows. Russians I have known over the years know what it's like to live in a media-fabricated bubble of unreality. And they also know that Putin is a guy who has murdered journalists who dare to criticize him. Did the CIA do the same thing to Udo Ulfkotte? It reminds me of that line from John LeCarre's Cold War era novel, The Spy Who Came In From the Cold -- "The Berlin Wall is not a wall. It's a seam."
  22. Unreal... Donald Trump blaming Joe Biden for the low vaccination rates among Trump supporters in the U.S. is like the Joker blaming Batman for a Gotham City crime wave... 🤥
  23. Is anyone on the forum aware of any new revelations about alleged CIA/Deep State contracts with mainstream media corporations or private journalists, since Ulfkotte's book? I recall reading somewhere about Jeff Bezos signing a $640 million contract with the CIA a few years ago, after he bought the Washington Post. For such a hugely important subject, the silence is deafening.
  24. Pence should speak up, publicly. He has a moral responsibility to tell America the truth about January 6th. It's not like he's going to lose any support from Trump fans. Most of them still, apparently, believe that he should have been lynched on January 6th.
  25. Dennis, My opinion about Hoffe isn't based on media narratives. It's based on my own scientific and medical training. How can COVID Spike proteins proliferate in the body after the mRNA in the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines has been metabolized, typically within a few days? It's biochemically fragile. Secondly, the immune system (antibodies and macrophages) attacks and eliminates the Spike proteins-- which is why the vaccines establish immunity to COVID. 99.2% of all U.S. COVID deaths in June occurred in un-vaccinated people. Hoffe is not an immunologist of a micro-biologist. Nor is he an expert in infectious diseases.
