I’ve Been to the Mountaintop

“All we say to America is, ‘Be true to what you said on paper.’  

If I lived in China or even Russia, or any totalitarian country, maybe I could understand the denial of certain basic 1st Amendment privileges, because they hadn’t committed themselves to that over there.

But somewhere I read of the Freedom of Assembly.  Somewhere I read of the Freedom of Speech.

Somewhere I read of the Freedom of the Press.  Somewhere I read that the greatness of America is the Right to Protest – for Right.

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord!!

    Trump Administration Pushes Positive PR Campaign as Puerto Rico’s Crisis Continues

    Alternate Headline:
    Leaked: Outlined PR Plan for Worldwide TV Show

    A Step by Step Production:
    “today and tomorrow we use” – “Monday and Tuesday we
    can pivot” – “throughout next week and next weekend” –
    “Then we start a theme”

    Ask yourself:
    How much of what I see, hear, and read is. . .Controlled?
    To what extent?
    How far under do those Narrative tentacles feed?
    How long has this been going on?
    And, what more does this “Leak” actually tell us?

    Final Act Production Note: “Planned hits.”

    Ask Again: Didn’t someone Leak documents directly relating to that, years ago?

    Cold-Hearted Trump: Her Son “Knew What He Signed Up For”
    https://www.commondreams.org/news/2017/10/18/mother-fallen-soldier-confirms-account-call-cold-hearted-trump

    Wilson told the Washington Post that she wanted to “curse [Trump] out” when she heard his comment, which she said made Myeshia Johnson cry.

    Wilson went on to say that Myeshia Johnson turned to her after the phone conversation with Trump ended and said “he didn’t even know his name.”

    “Now that’s the worst part,” Wilson said. “This man is a sick man. He’s cold-hearted, and he feels no pity or sympathy for anyone.”

      We need you and your efforts (more than ever) in these exponentially-escalating times of secret laws based on secret memos, secret courts acting with secret evidence (which will not be revealed to the accused), absolute torture to the point of insanity (and death) as a means of interrogation until one gives answers (truthful or not) that the interrogators want, worldwide surveillance on every inhabitant (without probable cause) that can be (and is) used as a means to instill fear, to threaten, tarnish, oppress, and silence even peaceful dissenters of basic causes, and an overwhelming predominance of propagandistic Narratives for “News” – while (resultantly) turning back history 500 years. An evolution: from Total Information Awareness (which started long before 9/11) to Total Information Control (as a goal in the present).

    COINTELPRO:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/COINTELPRO

    Psychological warfare: The FBI and police used myriad “dirty tricks” to undermine progressive movements. They planted false media stories and published bogus leaflets and other publications in the name of targeted groups. They forged correspondence, sent anonymous letters, and made anonymous telephone calls.

    Media’s Traditional Misremembering of King distorts his ideas and priorities, and rewrites the press’s own role in history; it also projects a distorted vision of what protest means, and how social change happens—a clear view of which is much in demand right now.

    Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence

    A time comes when silence is betrayal.” “Some of us who have already begun to break the silence of the night have found that the calling to speak is often a vocation of agony, but we must speak.”
