And I’ll tell it and think it and speak it and breathe it
And reflect it from the mountain so all souls can see it
Then I’ll stand on the ocean until I start sinkin’
But I’ll know my song well before I start singin’
And it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard
It’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall
And I’ll tell it and think it and speak it and breathe it
First Draft Coalition[s]
So, who are the “responsible” journalists who should be anointed to regulate what the world’s public gets to see and hear? For that Orwellian task, a kind of Ministry of Truth has been set up by Google (supposedly formed in 2015, after Ukraine scenarios,) called the First Draft Coalition, which touts itself as a collection of 30 major news and technology companies, including [Facebook, Twitter,] the Times and Post, tackling “fake news” and creating a platform to decide which stories [or narratives or scripts] are questionable and which ones aren’t.
“I have watched incredulous as the CIA’s blatant Lie has grown and grown as a media story – blatant because the CIA has made no attempt whatsoever to substantiate it. There is no Russian involvement in the leaks of emails showing Clinton’s corruption.” Craig Murray, the former UK ambassador to Uzbekistan . . . called the CIA claims “bullshit,” adding: “They are absolutely making it up.” “I know who leaked them,” Murray said. “I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian and it’s an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things.”
PropOrNot Provides the Spark
[T]he Hillary Clinton presidential campaign [DNC, etc.]: Already [especially since the leaks, and after a nationwide rigging scandal that the MSM would never focus on], Russian hacking was the centerpiece of the argument. Less than three weeks after Clinton’s defeat, The Washington Post’s Craig Timberg published a dubiously sourced report headlined, “Russian Propaganda Effort Helped Spread ‘Fake News.’” The article hyped up a McCarthyite effort by a shadowy, anonymously run organization called PropOrNot to Blacklist some 200 American media outlets as Russian “online propaganda.”
[Actors] Committee to Investigate Russia: “We Are At War”
Acts of Rachel Maddow: All Russia. All The Time.
Acts of CNN to Olbermann to . . .
NBC News, to Claim Russia Supports Tulsi Gabbard, Relies on Firm
Just Caught Fabricating Russia Data for the Democratic Party
“But the whole story was a sham: the only ‘experts’ cited by NBC in support of its key claim was the firm, New Knowledge, that just got caught fabricating Russian troll accounts on behalf of the Democratic Party.” “New Knowledge boasted of its fabrications: ‘We orchestrated
an elaborate ‘false flag’ operation that planted the idea that the [Roy] Moore campaign was amplified on social media by a Russian botnet.’”
“Even more hilariously, the source [was] . . . New Knowledge.”
As with the First Draft Coalition, there is nothing hilarious about it.
Step by step, as scripted and staged, this is the next planned point:
NBC News, world stage, boldly crammed into everyone’s faces. It is no longer a “McCarthyite environment of Russia hysteria”; it is now, blatantly, beyond. “This article is of course [obscenely] absurd.” Yes, and this is where/when they know that most know what is actually taking place. It is time, their time, the very time “they” concocted. And, anyone who dares stand for or speak Truth to Power will be targeted – obviously, ruthlessly, soullessly.
Aaron Maté on Russiagate
Aaron Maté: I’ll never forget Maddow did a segment where she’s talking about some alleged Russian trolls interfering on Bernie Sanders’ fan club page, and she called it international warfare against our country, and so on. And I’ll never forget Rob Reiner, who helped set up this neocon Hollywood group called the Committee to Investigate Russia. Rob Reiner on MSNBC said that the Russians are in our bloodstream.
Yes, much (truth) was (eventually) undoubtedly revealed.
Yet, the (ongoing) campaign was (still) a Total Success (in many facets).
Reality: Newscasters Agree: [Merry Christmas!]
“Accidentally Revealed”: And, Britain just “inadvertently” ignored a UN Human Rights ruling that Julian Assange was “being arbitrarily detained in violation of International Law.” And, soon, he will be “interrogated” with (more) “enhanced” measures (tortured further) – for as long as it takes. Then, (controlled) Leaks will provide details of all his (False) confessions.
But, again (and again, and again), these types of global repercussions often happen with “simple copy-paste error[s].”
The question: Where are we?
First, they came for the Conspiracy Theorists, and not enough realized the long-term goals of the (star chambered) conspirators. Next, they came for those daring to even speak Truth to Power, and not enough realized the long-term goals of the (star chambered) conspirators.
Then, the level of worldwide Controlled Narratives was exposed through the most obvious Pys-Op of a (renewed) McCarthyite Russian Campaign, and not enough realized the long-term goals of the (star chambered) conspirators. And finally, though just enough (of those who were not blind or awakened) saw that It was all covered under Lies Through Scripted Actors with Staged Acts, the (star chambered) conspirators continued their onslaught, completely emboldened – for the time had come when they could fulfill last steps of those long-term goals.
Obama Confidant’s Spine-Chilling Proposal: Cass Sunstein Wants the Government to “Cognitively Infiltrate” Anti-Government Groups
[See] Obama’s head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs where, among other things, he [was] responsible for “overseeing policies relating to privacy, information quality, and statistical programs.” In 2008, while at Harvard Law School, Sunstein co-wrote a truly pernicious paper proposing that the U.S. Government employ teams of covert agents and pseudo-“independent” advocates to “cognitively infiltrate” online groups and websites – as well as other activist groups – which advocate views that Sunstein deems “false conspiracy theories” about the Government.
Right off the bat, Richard Eskow sets up a MSM cover, deflection, and downplay article: “Aren’t there better things to argue about? As it turns out, there are.”
Aside from this “play/write it safe as possible” PR blather, in relation to Donna Brazile and ongoing corruption within the DNC, this whole related context demands “things to argue about” – vehemently, but not in the MSNBC/CNN-style of Scripted/Pre-approved Talking Point Presentations – fulfilled upon Staged Productions.
“And she’s quick to pronounce the DNC innocent of actions, including her own, that are . . . widely known.”
Right there, we have a bottom line, a core, and the overriding Truth.
Yet, he immediately follows this up with two sentences which destroy his and the article’s entire credibility:
“Still, Brazile is right on the particulars. And it’s hard not to admire her courage, book promotion or not.”
Just literally sickening: “it’s hard not to admire her courage” – while discounting the PR campaign for a Book Tour ($1 million dollars profit?).
Here’s an example of Donna Brazile’s courage:
Further Acts and Scripts – In The Name of Jesus Christ and God:
Quote: “As a Christian woman I understand persecution, but I will not stand here and be persecuted because your information is totally false.”
Next: “Don’t re-litigate the past.” “This time around, I couldn’t agree more. Let’s litigate the future instead.”
Yes, “We must look forward, not backward.” Wait! That sounds so familiar! And, did that mentality help us to right so many critical wrongs that were done on the world stage – thus, actually enabling them to exponentially propagate?
Then: “A reformed Democratic Party should” blah blah, blah = As If!
Why “As If?” For one among multitudes:
“The DNC picked a bunch of sleazy lobbyists as superdelegates, can’t figure out why no one is donating.”
Watch an Overall Summary:
Within Controlled confines, nothing will change – beyond reworkings of Scripts, Narratives, Presentations, and Staged Productions.
WH Pushes Positive PR Campaign as Puerto Rico’s Crisis Continues
Remember an 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”
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?
Then, don’t be surprised by an eventual Final Act Production Note:
The aide said that guys like me were ‘in what we call the reality-based community,’ which he defined as people who ‘believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.’ […] ‘That’s not the way the world really works anymore,’ he continued. ‘We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.’
In a series of Narrated Setups: First, Star Chamber interests decide what directions and actions are needed to fulfill what has been chosen for implementation. Next (after successful steps), many months (or even years) beforehand, they dispense Talking Points to concerted operatives, pliable/collusive publications, and fronted or “reliable” “news” sources. Then, the people are (sold) “informed” incrementally as to what is inevitably upcoming. Thus, under the guise of Facts simply being reported, it works (exceedingly) as a well-timed machine.
PR Book Tours, MSM Revisionist Collusion, and Related Sacrilege:
When those of the world stage[s] put on Acts In the Name of God
without His (true) confirmation, assurance, or guidance, historical repercussions most often (eventually) reveal their obscured Lies:
The deceitful directions/related measures were actually of
(and from) the darkest (princely) sources/powers.
“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.”

Censored, Blocked, and Banned: An Open Letter to Google/YouTube
(Censorship: Google Bans and First Draft Coalition[s])
My account, (Verified Channel) WindHarps (which has been online since September of 2007), is in Good Standing (0 copyright strikes/0 Community Guidelines strikes). Moreover, the entire channel and all uploaded videos reflect dedication, inspiration, and devotion to God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. Yet, it is essentially Blocked, overall. For instance, my most recent/Featured video (I’ve Been) Searchin’ So Long: Chicago (Rains) has been locked at 522 visits for two months – even though it is known, for a Fact, that various friends from other blogs, social sites, and personal relationships have been visiting/watching. Further, in total relation, virtually every video at WindHarps Videos has experienced or witnessed an abrupt, absolute cessation of (Counted/Analytic) views during the same period.
Crucially revealing, this has happened numerous times over the last ten years – which also resulted in various (similar) letters sent to you via Fax, Email, and Feedback.
Why? Do you have a problem with individuals who focus on God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit? But no, since there are so many others who succeed on YouTube in the same vein it must not be that (as a core). Is it something else, like Politics (past and present)? Is it because of a ceasing of Advertising ($pending money) through AdWords for promotion? Is it connected to the First Draft Coalition? Or, is it all (Holy Trinity, Politics, and Censorship) working together?
Whatever your (actual) reasons, a Resolution is sought – without my offering any compromises to permanent values or dedications. The WindHarps channel and all related videos can be Unblocked and/or taken out of purposely effective obscurity (manually relegating content to pages 172, for example) should you choose, altruistically (as a matter of what is simply righteous – even in business models), or just technically (as a matter of the least levels – of business ethics).
(These factual statements have also be sent by way of Feedback).
Finally, forward this communication to any appropriate departments.
One of the many pressing stories that remains to be told from the Snowden archive is how intelligence agencies are attempting to manipulate and control online discourse with extreme tactics of deception and reputation-destruction.
[O]ur NBC reporting highlighted some of the key, discrete revelations: the monitoring of YouTube and Blogger, . . . and destructive viruses. But, here, I want to focus and elaborate on the overarching point revealed by all of these documents: namely, that these agencies are attempting to control, infiltrate, manipulate, and warp online discourse, and in doing so, are compromising the integrity of the internet itself.
In fact, the discussion of many of these techniques occurs in the context of using them in lieu of “traditional law enforcement” against people suspected (but not charged or convicted) of ordinary crimes or . . . those who use online protest activity for political ends. The title page of one of these documents reflects the agency’s own awareness that it is “pushing the boundaries” by using “cyber offensive” techniques against people who have nothing to do with terrorism or national security threats.
The broader point is that . . . these surveillance agencies have vested themselves with the power to deliberately ruin people’s reputations. . . .
[This] amounts to targeting citizens for expressing their political beliefs, resulting in the stifling of legitimate dissent.
Under the tactics they use, the state is deliberately spreading lies on the internet about whichever individuals it targets, including the use of what GCHQ itself calls “false flag operations.” Who would possibly trust a government to exercise these powers at all, let alone do so in secret, with virtually no oversight, and outside of any cognizable legal framework? : “Strategic Influence and Disruption.”
Whatever else is true, no government should be able to engage in these tactics.
The ability to manipulate the results of online polls, artificially inflate pageview counts on web sites, “amplif[y]” sanctioned messages on YouTube, and Censor Video Content judged to be “extremist.” “Ability to artificially increase traffic to a website” (GATEWAY) and “ability to inflate page views on websites” (SLIPSTREAM). “Amplification of a given message, normally video, on popular multimedia websites (Youtube)” (GESTATOR). (As evidenced, “Censor[ing]”/blocking is often explicit, in reality).
Capabilities to boost views of YouTube videos, or to boost the circulation of particular messages are also detailed.
The government can tap into the cables carrying the world’s web traffic at will and spy on what people are doing on some of the world’s most popular social media sites, including YouTube. British cyber spies demonstrated a pilot program to their U.S. partners in 2012 in which they were able to monitor YouTube in real time and collect addresses. Called “Psychology A New Kind of SIGDEV” (Signals Development), the presentation includes a section that spells out “Broad real-time monitoring of online activity” of YouTube videos, URLs “liked” on Facebook, and Blogspot/Blogger visits. The monitoring program is called “Squeaky Dolphin.” “Governments have no business knowing which YouTube videos everyone in the world is watching.”
The story of Jesus
So easy to explain
After they crucified him,
A woman, she claimed his name
The story of Jesus
The whole Bible knows
Went all across the desert
And in the middle, he found a rose
There should be no questions
There should be no lies
He was married ever happily after
All the tears we cry
No use in arguing
All the use to the man that moans
When each man falls in battle
His soul it has to roam
Angles of heaven
Flying saucers to some,
Made Easter Sunday
The name of the rising sun
The story is written
By so many people who dared,
To lay down the truth
To so very many who cared
To carry the cross
Of Jesus and beyond
We will guide the light
This time with a woman in our arms
We as men
Can’t explain the reason why
The woman’s always mentioned
At the moment that we die
All we know
Is God is by our side,
And he says the word
So easy yet so hard
I wish not to be alone,
So I must respect my other heart
Oh, the story
Of Jesus is the story
Of you and me
No use in feeling lonely,
I am searching to be free
Of life is quicker
Than the wink of an eye
The story of love
Is hello and goodbye
Until we meet again.
Sheer “ignorance” and pure hypocrisy continue, as imposed by a (dwindling) minority force – those who have opportunities to utilize intelligence and available “knowledge” – but refuse to accept (awakening) winds of change. There are combinations, of course – where utilization and availability are realized (to degrees/stages), yet control, thus power, must (as some deem necessary) override – since freedom of access might infringe upon entitled goals. Surah 4. An-Nisaa, 17: “Allah accepts only the repentance of those who do evil in ignorance and (their) foolishness and repent soon afterwards; To them will Allah turn in mercy: For Allah is full of knowledge and wisdom.” Jesus The Son of Man: ” “But I tolerate not the hypocrite, because he himself lays a yoke upon the guileless and the yielding.”
As noted/sung by Cat Stevens (Yusuf Islam), “deceit kills the light.” If women and female children are denied equal education windows, what does that say/represent about the Fear in related men (and how far deceptions may shadow – over thousands of years, like stoning)? It is possible, while “On the Road to Find Out,” to “kick out the devil’s sin” and “pick up [a] good book” – without denying one’s growth through learning (advancements), and especially without denying others the same. Surah 4. An-Nisaa, 1: “He (Allah) created his mate of similar nature.” John 8:7: “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.”

Faith is to Believe, on the Word of God,
What we do not see, and its reward
is to see and enjoy what we
(St. Augustine of Hippo)
“As we think about what happened to Aaron, we need to recognize that it was not just prosecutorial overreach that killed him. That’s too easy, because that implies it’s one bad apple. We know that’s not true. What killed him was corruption. Corruption isn’t just people profiting from betraying the public interest. It’s also people being punished for upholding the public interest.”
Bogus Statement Concerning The Aaron Swartz Prosecution
“Basically, this whole system is wide open to abuse, and it’s clear from Ortiz’s actions that she, too, was abusing the system in this manner: pushing for super high possible jail time as a huge and scary weapon to try to pressure Swartz into accepting a lower rate — but also making him a convicted felon.”
Prosecutor as Bully
“That person is gone today, driven to the edge by what a decent society would only call bullying. I get wrong. But I also get proportionality. And if you don’t get both, you don’t deserve to have the power of the United States government behind you.”
Prosecution of Aaron Swartz Pushed Him Toward Death
”I think Aaron was frightened and bewildered that they’d taken this incredibly hard line against him…He didn’t want to go to jail. He didn’t want to be a felon.”
Aaron Swartz and the Corrupt Practice of Plea Bargaining
“But none of these rights matter if the defendant never gets to trial. And thanks to the legal fiction that plea bargaining is a voluntary negotiation between the prosecutor and defendant, our justice system effectively gives people dramatically longer sentences for exercising the right to have a trial at all.”
Consequences for Prosecutorial Abuse in Case of Aaron Swartz
“The US has become a society in which political and financial elites systematically evade accountability for their bad acts, no matter how destructive. Those who torture, illegally eavesdrop, commit systemic financial fraud, even launder money for designated terrorists and drug dealers are all protected from criminal liability, while those who are powerless – or especially, as in Swartz’s case, those who challenge power – are mercilessly punished for trivial transgressions.”
Prosecution of Aaron Swartz Paints Obama’s Justice Department
And Heymann knew about Swartz’s mental health problems. In an interview with the Boston Globe, Andy Good, Swartz’s first lawyer, said: “I told Heymann the kid was a suicide risk, … they were aware of the risk, and they were heedless.” In what Good says is typical of prosecutors when dealing with a target who is a potential suicide, he recounted Heymann’s response as: “Fine, we’ll lock him up.”
Aaron Swartz and Jean Seberg
“The psychological toll of being targeted by the government for political beliefs is massive, the stuff that filled Soviet-era gulags.”
Inspiring Heroism of Aaron Swartz
“He could have easily opted for a life of great personal wealth, status, prestige and comfort. He chose instead to fight – selflessly, with conviction and purpose, and at great risk to himself – for noble causes to which he was passionately devoted.”
Statement from the Family and Partner of Aaron Swartz
“We’re grateful for our time with him, to those who loved him and stood with him, and to all of those who continue his work for a better world.”
Remember Aaron Swartz
“Aaron’s insatiable curiosity, creativity, and brilliance; his reflexive empathy and capacity for selfless, boundless love; his refusal to accept injustice as inevitable—these gifts made the world, and our lives, far brighter.”
“[R]emove the nails and separate him from the crucifix, which we leave to one side.” “Another culinary ‘guideline’ recommends using a proportion of ‘one gaunt Christ’ for each two potential diners.” “Krahe’s film shows the audience, in a style much like a cookery program, how to take a figure of Jesus on the Cross, remove the nails from the figure’s hands, prepare for roasting in a dish, and then put the figure in the oven and ‘after three days inside, he comes out of the cooker by himself!’”
This would not fall under “so-called offensive,” as belittled; it is blatantly and purposely offensive — in an extreme. Levels exist, and this artist precisely meant to offend, in the highest level of degree. If the same scenario was applied in various fashions, would as many supporters still flaunt with a laugh? For example, how about a video that became viral after presentation on FOX: “How to Cook Obama”? Or, from MSNBC: “How to Cook Bush (Until He Confesses)”?
Or, “How to Cook an Atheist (to the Point of Believing)”? Or, “How to Cook Mormons (Until They Renounce Their Religion)”? Or, “How to Cook Union Activists (Until They Quit Organizing)”? Or, “How to Cook Mother Teresa (Out of Heaven)”? Or, “How to Cook Your Wives (Into Submission)”? Or, “How to Cook Your Pets (and Strays)”? Or, “How to Cook a Buddhist”? Or, “For a Master Race: How to Cook Americans in Ovens”? Or, “How to Cook Javier Krahe’s Wife (For Not Wearing a Veil)”? Etc.
[Note: This reflection should not to be taken as advocacy for turning back history with prison terms in relation to Free Speech and Expression.
It is straightforward: Extreme Meets Extreme.]
Where Were You When They Crucified My Movement?
Chris Hedges: “And there comes a time when a true follower of Jesus Christ must take a stand that’s neither safe nor politic nor popular but he must take a stand because it is right.” “Where is the church now? Where are the clergy? Why do so many church doors remain shut? Why do so many churches refuse to carry out the central mandate of the Christian Gospel and lift up the cross?”
“Some day they are going to have to answer the question:
‘Where were you when they crucified my Lord?'”
Gospel of Thomas, #108: “Whoever drinks from my mouth will become like me; I myself shall become that person, and the hidden things will be revealed to that person.”
Re: (12/25) “Why this insistence with appealing for religions’ support?”
“Christ of the Sermon on the mountain” is the focal point of the article/appeal: the Beatitudes. If you read/watch it, without nullifying every issue with historical atrocities (those that have occurred sacrilegiously not only in the name of God/Jesus, but from virtually every religion), current moments of teaching might shine through – moments which expose atrocities, implicitly and explicitly – while also emphasizing the coinciding and uplifting Truth: what was meant to be, as guided (Beatitudes/Sermon on the Mount), what has actually happened, and how the corrupted chapters can be confronted (as they have been in the past, so they may also be in the present).
It is a call – to bring together, to take what was learned (from all sides), throughout, to embrace the Light of previous dissenting Stands in the face of evil (where the Word’s directions were being manipulatively trashed), and to Triumph once again with current actions which implement this overall historical knowledge, for/in what is right – Now, in the face of another immediate crucial challenge – one whose textual ending is not yet (earthly) written, and one whose spiritual power is still reaching out to those who wish to accept roles in fulfilling its affinity.
As far as “Religions have always been not only on the side of power but power themselves,” if the choice is still possible, reread, review, rethink, and refocus. One-sided perspectives of such demeaning proportions most often have become wholly distorted because what was (diminutively) allowed within that schema only reflected (and enhanced) that which was already lost.
Regarding “Take Christ’s teaching as the teaching of one of the many enlightened people who walked on this planet but go as far away as you can from Christianity, a power and propaganda system that has never had anything in common with that Christ of the Sermon on the mountain” – many of those (throughout history) who took up (multifaceted) swords were indeed “enlightened” on various pristine levels, while encountering and experiencing (within/without) both the ultimate negative evolutions as well as the highest evolvements. During these same periods, a predominance of “another many” also believed they were “enlightened” – while sowing the darkest destruction across this earth (and into relative realms). Consequently, the latter feeding and fulfillment of the “other” side’s goals, blasphemously In His Name, for whatever then-current (and ongoing) reasons, was often countered and corresponded with the former ultimate Risings. In doing so, those warriors who were called upon by the very Light were being True to the teachings, messages, and guidance of the holy One, the begotten Son – “who walked this planet” as one of them, meekly – knowing that though His death was written in the utmost cause, His everlasting life would provide a path to God’s kingdom, and Their forever. They were not “go[ing] as far away as [they] [could] from Christianity,” they were getting ever-closer to the heart of it, thus accepting essential roles in distinct chapters (as intended, as requested, as scrolled and scribed, as manifested).
“Today is Christmas, so it may be a good day to also remember the victims of Christianity, compare to which Nazism and Stalinism fade as young apprentices. We may see just baby Jesus in the nativity and the lights in the Xmas tree, but that’s because we have been indoctrinated and made blind to our own history.”
In relation to those further words of complete derision, the following words (as the previous) are for resultant clarity in vision – may the outcome be an awakened cleansing, for without there will surely be an ending based on those wholly clouded decisions:
Our Father in heaven, who lives among and within us,
the Judge of every one –
Our Savior, the King of kings, the Lord of what will be done –
may this sightless spirit be taught, that it may eventually see –
may the direction headed be turned,
as it directly opposes your promised eternity.
“Some day they are going to have to answer the question: ‘Where were you when they crucified my Lord?’” When that time comes,
how will you answer?
“Justice is Beautiful, but Justice is Never Free.”

For people like Sharron Angle, a clarification, or reminder: in scriptural and spiritual terms, there are two polar sides in the overall conflict. True, the Light has (and makes) plans. However, (assuming corresponding belief in good vs. evil/the original cast out) there is another side (dark) which also does the same. Within those veins, the goals are extreme in differences of aspect. One side relishes particular types of opportunities – like having a sickened, immoral, unrepentant father who is on the verge of crossing over by raping his daughter – because they want him to go through with it (while possibly fulfilling their getting the most important part of him). The other is saddened by such situations/inclinations, yet still seeks to save, to turn around, not just the individual perpetrator – but the related circumstances (including victims’) as well. In a scenario such as this, which force’s “will” (or proposed “plan”) would be fulfilled by the man scarring a girl for life – while (possibly) forever losing his own? For that impregnated child, what would be more likely during her agonizing trial? : thoughts of a heartless “prince of this world” and its minions having triumphed, at least in directed torture – or realizations that a Loving God and His servants may implement intense measures to win certain battles, though her savaging by a perverted father would improbably be one of them? (P.S. Ever heard of Free Will?)
Recently, two prominent articles were published – in opposing veins: “NPR & Trust in Government,” by Robert Shetterly (04/19), which called out NPR for allowing the propaganda operative Philip Zelikow to “frame [a] discussion” on “Trust in government,” while failing to note his long record of purposeful (world stage) obfuscation, including a treacherous role in the area of WTC 7, and “Shame On Jesse Ventura!,” by Jeffrey Scott Shapiro (another operative) (04/21), who asserts “that [Larry] Silverstein planned to use controlled demolition on WTC 7” – as if it’s common knowledge/no big deal. The focus here is on Shapiro’s brash, out of the blue, aggressiveness (under the cover of being clueless to the overall picture/consequences), while Shetterly’s should be read for many reasons: clarity, as a depiction of rare courage in our dominant landscape, and as a partial portrayal of how Timing works in our fabricated environment.
Perhaps what Ventura is missing is that there is probably more incontrovertible evidence and more witnesses who have already established what happened on Sept. 11, 2001 than most major historical events. To dispute the conventional historical account is intellectually dishonest and nonsensical.
Regarding WTC 7, the major “news” Shapiro is presently “sharing” (upcoming exclusive!) destroys “the conventional historical account.” So, was he “intellectually dishonest and nonsensical” in all of his relative writings since 9/11 – until this month? Yet now, he can be taken as honest, wise, and forthcoming? Further, all “evidence” to the contrary of the “historical account” was banished from allowable discussion or review from Day One – as were any testimonies of opposing “witnesses.” (What changed?)
Shapiro: I know this because I was working as a journalist for Gannett News at Ground Zero . . . , and I remember very clearly what I saw and heard.
Here’s a quote from one of those other witnesses, Barry Jennings (who didn’t have a column, and was not permitted to speak freely without a modern Scarlet Letter):
I’m just confused about one thing . . . , why WTC 7 went down in the first place. I know what I heard. I heard explosions. The explanation I got was, it was the fuel-oil tank.
I’m an old boiler guy. If it was a fuel-oil tank, it would have been one side of the building.
Shapiro: Shortly before the building collapsed, several NYPD officers and Con-Edison workers told me that Larry Silverstein . . . was on the phone with his insurance carrier to see if they would authorize the controlled demolition of the building – since its foundation was already unstable and expected to fall.
Got that? Remember all the uproar over the Silverstein video (“Pull It”) – scenarios of which he denied in Public, over and over, for years?
New angle! : “Already unstable and expected to fall.” Remember this: 1) No plane hit WTC 7. 2) “Fires [alone] have never [In History] caused a steel-framed building to totally collapse [including core columns],” – not “before or after September 11th, 2001.” Moreover, review/remember NIST’s “Officially” “Scientific” conclusion:
Shapiro: A controlled demolition would have minimized the damage caused by the building’s imminent collapse and potentially save lives. Many law enforcement personnel, firefighters and other journalists were aware of this possible option. There was no secret. There was no conspiracy (emphasis added).
“Many [on the inside] were aware of this possible option.” Really? How “many” people (across the earth) would regard this as the first they ever heard of it? Are we to believe that this article is the first members of NIST and the 9/11 Commission are hearing of it? Barry Jennings was inside. Did he, from the occurrence until his death, consider himself as in on the openness, without any “secret” “conspiracy” ramifications?
Why? Why would he make such fomenting claims as Casual Facts
(at this time)? How clearly obvious is this as a representation of Subversive (“discredited”) planting from a “[defaming]” Provocateur? One answer, as referenced in a recent post:
In Narrated Setups: First, Star Chamber interests decide what directions and actions are needed to fulfill what has been chosen for implementation. Next (after successful steps), many months (or even years) beforehand, they dispense Talking Points to concerted operatives, pliable/collusive publications, and fronted or “reliable” “news” sources. Then, the people are (sold) “informed” incrementally as to what is inevitably upcoming. Thus, under the guise of Facts simply being reported, it works (exceedingly) as a well-timed machine.
The Keys: What this would mean (supposedly unbeknownst to Shapiro): 1) NY and U.S. government officials did not inform the public (for at least 8½ years). (Why? What benefits ensue? : Control of Narratives, which equals controlled reactions – as well as the sphere of questions.) 2) They (covertly and overtly) ridiculed, tarnished, and literally destroyed entire livelihoods of people who challenged the official storyline through (in the least) vile accusations of lunatic “conspiracy theories” – without, for at least 8½ years, ever acknowledging even the possibility of demolition. (Modus Operandi: fully utilizing textbook “paranoid, delusional pack of lies” angles, labels.) 3) It may explain why all WTC 7 references were left out of the 9/11 Commission report. But, it would also clarify the worldwide subterfuge of NIST’s 2008 (guided) assertions – as well as all the other attributing (staged) “reports” and “scientific” conclusions put forward. 4) For even the possibility of demolition standby to be true, WTC 7 had to have been rigged – AHEAD. Consequently, a controlling (Deep State) Establishment, colluding with MSM, Banned 9/11 Truthers (to whatever degrees deemed necessary). Cass Sunstein:
2008: Propos[ed] that the US government employ teams of covert agents and pseudo-”independent” advocates to “cognitively infiltrate” online groups and websites, as well as other activist groups. [Also proposed]: sending covert agents into “chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups” which spread what [they view] as . . . damaging “conspiracy theories.”
Still, another inevitable point:
Unsurprisingly, they may come up with statements like “Well, NIST did what they were directed to do. But, now that this has come out (where, undeniably, we could not have set WTC 7 up – while it was burning), our currently released position is one where we have been secretly rigging buildings all over the U.S. – ahead of time – just in case it’s needed – for many years.”
5) And, when that pre-rigging is finally admitted (used), associated revelations will be staggering in clarifications. 6) LIE after lie after lie after lie, after report after report after report, year after year. Yet, Believe us Now: There’s new (old/“minitrue”) information!!
Controlled demolitions. Controlled presentations. And yes, Shapiro “should be ashamed of himself and embarrassed” (to the point of begging God for forgiveness), but he does not work within or for the same world we perceive; he works within and for the secreted/hoaxing Elite (who mold our perceptions):
Karl Rove: “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality – judiciously, as you will – we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”
Again: What benefits ensue? : Control of Narratives, which equals controlled reactions – as well as the sphere of questions. That way, everything becomes “Fair and Balanced.”
Update (11/16/2010): Geraldo Rivera: “It is an Intriguing topic. I certainly am much more open about it than I was, and it is because of the involvement of the 9/11 families and all these engineers and architects. Clearly they know more than I do.”
Notice how he gives no credit to 9/11 Truthers, in general, regardless of how long they have fought — and withstood national trashings. Nevertheless, it is interesting to see these new angles (of enlightenment) from a “Balanced” (cough) FOX.
The Worst Thing About the Health Care Law That Passed?
It Bootstraps the New Homeless (An Open Letter to Michael Moore):
To Michael Moore, a (former?) champion for the commoners (03/22):
“Thanks to last night’s vote,” an Individual Mandate without even the slightest of a Public Option is a Reality. “Thanks to last night’s vote,”
it will be a Criminal Act if we do not buy a private policy from a corporation – whether or not we can afford one. “Thanks to last night’s vote,” during a Second Depression, we will have to spend 8% of our income toward coverage. But, we are not allowed to call that a new TAX (for those making less than $250,000). Yes, “It’s truly a banner day for these corporations.” As a result, many millions of us who were cheering you on for years are wondering why you are so enthusiastic over the flogging we (regular people/progressives) suffered on Sunday evening? This was not a “Canadian-loving,” “independent,” Victory. As written months ago, this was something the last administration would have rammed through. Remember those “13 problems with the current health care bills” you and Rose Ann DeMoro organized last September? The list remains – unfulfilled. Remember calling this bill a Joke? It still is (while a more proper term would be “Hoax”). What happened to you? Is this the answer? : “Pass it because, if President Obama takes a fall on this one, I don’t know if he’ll be able to get back up.” Now, you toe the party line — for politics’ sake? “A good night it was — important little steps were taken to bring our country into the civilized world.” Mr. Moore, most of the other “steps” within were not “little,” and they set us a major notch toward a total corporate state. Is that (accepting another broad redistribution of the bootstraps-mentality for the commoners by way of fascistic coercion) what you are presently considering as necessary modes of becoming more civilized? Before Rep. Kucinich succumbed, he also had a list:
“If this is the best we can do, then our best isn’t good enough and we have to ask some hard questions about our political system: such as Health Care or Insurance Care? Government of the people or a government of the corporations?”
As opposed to yours, his is only inches away from being fulfilled (“Thanks to last night’s vote”).
Update: You and MoveOn.org are teaming up to promote “Capitalism: A Love Story.” 03/25: “MoveOn.org is launching a huge new campaign to take back democracy from the corporations and lobbyists.”
Considering the last two posts, and the timing of this letter/association, my head is still shaking.
MoveOn.org organized against Rep. Kucinich. Why? Because he [was] standing up to this administration’s/the corporate democrats’ insurance company giveaway (unneeded bailout). View “Is This The Best We Can Do?” – and, remember the following statement, for it is one which should ring in every American’s ears: “If a mandate was a solution, we could try that to solve homelessness by mandating everyone buy a house.”
MoveOn allied itself with a (sold out) center (NDC) – so far to the right that it would be considered republican/conservative in the year 1996. They are now agents/actors of/for the elite establishment (status quo). Any waves their organization purports to make will henceforth be highly projected – yet, only result in ripples (as intended). MoveOn asked ‘Which Side of History Will You Be On?‘ We responded: “May as many members of that organization as possible wake up to what this revealed, then renounce their associations – in Droves.” “Kucinich [wasn’t] holding out for a boondoggle, or a minority vendetta. He [was] staking a claim for a policy most people [wanted]” [the Public Option]. If a majority of the Majority had as much spine . . . ?
(The same reactions apply to any of the other groups who threatened those of us who were fighting against this Health Care Sham.)
Update (it’s over): On 03/17, Rep. Kucinich’s switch marked the end. There will be an Individual Mandate – without a Public Option. We supported people like him and Sen. Sanders for standing out. They failed us by not following through. Soon, people “will be herded like rebellious cattle into a ‘mandated’ slaughter by way of corporate pens (Policies).”
POLITICS (The Democrats Need to Call This a WIN!):
Dennis Kucinich: “We have to be very careful that the potential of President Obama’s presidency not be destroyed by this debate. And I feel, even though I have many differences with him on policy [Ring a bell? : “Policy Differences“], there’s something much bigger at stake here for America.”
POLITICS (The Democrats Need to Call This a WIN!):
(Even) Michael Moore: “Within days, the House of Representatives will vote to pass the Senate health care ‘reform’ bill. This bill is a joke. It has NOTHING to do with ‘health care reform.’ It has EVERYTHING to do with lining the pockets of the health insurance industry. It forces, by law, every American who isn’t old or destitute to buy health insurance if their boss doesn’t provide it. What company wouldn’t love the government forcing the public to buy that company’s product?!” Yet, “Pass it because, if President Obama takes a fall on this one, I don’t know if he’ll be able to get back up.”
Again: Let us not accept pure spin, while we’re being sold out, as
“the good.” Let us not forget that what was absolutely possible –
in a present tense, is now referred to as “the perfect” –
in a past tense.
Update II (Hidden Reality Confirmation):
NY Times Reporter Confirms Obama Made Deal to Kill Public Option
Response to Miles Mogulescu: Your work reveals what should be Front Page news, nationwide – resulting in a long-term scandalous exposition. Yet, of course, it won’t. Since the Reagan era, objectively independent and investigatory journalism has been erased so far from the mainstream that the few controlling conglomerates would finally proclaim victory, openly – if the internet (and alternative venues like Democracy Now) were somehow quelled. This confirmation of another grand, secret deal (in a series) exposes the sheer level to which the public was “bamboozled” and “punked.” On stage: “I’m a champion for the common people. Corporations, lobbyists, and power brokers will not tell me what to do.” Backstage: “Ladies and gentlemen (of the corporations, lobbyists, and power brokers), tell me what you are wanting to do. Then, after a selling period (mixed with some populist posturing) I will make that happen.” Norman Solomon, Zero Public Option + One Mandate = Disaster: “a stunning, deeply structural transfer of humongous power and wealth that would greatly boost the leverage of an already autocratic corporate state.” Exactly.
Palin: “Regarding the notes on my hand, and whether or not it revealed my true level of, uh, what’s that word (?) . . . intellect (!), at first, ‘I didn’t really have a good answer, as so often – is me’ (ya know, muttonhead, etc.).” “But then somebody sent me the other day, Isaiah 49:16. . . .” “Eureka! Obviously, God had to write on His hands, as well! ‘I’m like’ yoo-hoo and ya betcha, what darn tootin ‘good company!'” God (attempting to speak to her, for the first time): “Sarah, can you hear me? Sarah? Geez, not much going on in here. Oh well, I’ll just speak louder and louder. Sarah, the Bible is full of metaphorical and allegorical language. If I said I would write your name, as well as all the names of those who actually follow me, on my forehead – do you think it would be meant literally?” Palin: “I think God just spoke to me!” Friend: “What did He say?” Palin: “The Bible is literal, throughout. And, unlike 99% of others, I actually follow Him! He even uses Post-it notes!” God: “Note to self: Don’t get angry; think of it as trying to teach a moose. Sarah, you missed, and twisted, the entire message.” Palin: “He just spoke to me again!” Friend: “Really?” Palin: “Something like the Beatitudes were twisted as progressive messages – that we missed Jesus’ neoconservative intent. We should look to Glenn Beck for an update!” God: “I don’t think I could get through to this one with a follow the bouncing ball teleprompter.”
Sarah Palin: “Don’t Retreat, Instead–RELOAD!”
God: “Alright – to be more clear: I was trying to Give You a Clue.”
Sarah Palin: “Ya betcha (wink)!”
God: If this one becomes president, I may initiate the Second Coming.”]
“The Weatherproof Garment Company . . . mounted a huge billboard on 7th Avenue in New York City’s Times Square advertising the so-called ‘Obama Jacket.’” “The Weatherproof jacket was sewn in Vietnam by workers afforded few human and worker rights protections [who are usually] paid 27 cents an hour.”
Sweatshop Wages in Vietnam

As obvious through a recent PR Release, Rep. Carolyn Maloney believes that sugar-coating status quos will change what we have grown to know (as facts): “That 45-day period gives you nearly two billing cycles to do more than complain — to shop around for a card whose rate and terms of service you prefer.” Wow! Is it change — with teeth? (Please.) We have already been doing that for more than two years – while hearing foreign customer service agents of “banks” like Citi and Capital One tell us “If you don’t like it, you can close your account.” Were interest rates capped? No. Since passing the Credit CARD Act, has First Premier Bank escalated a sub-prime rate to 79.9%, Legally? Yes. “Laws like the CARD Act are reasonable and allow markets to function as market enthusiasts imagine they should: with less friction, more transparency, and with bad actors being driven from the field.” As a historic “bad actor,” was First Premier “driven from the field,” or, was it (like “prime” providers) emboldened? Having collectively witnessed and experienced the results of a rampant savaging of our world’s citizens and overall economic system, is it “reasonable” to “allow markets” to go forward, basically unfettered with any returning or meaningfully modified regulation? Moreover, how insulting (and detrimental) is it to have Representatives selling such a premise? After 100 million people (including the best tier of customers) were gouged into 29.9% (Usury) rates, as redress, did they seek what was “reasonable” in the view of their predators? “Once interest rates, terms and conditions are clearly stated . . . the consumer can make a clear-headed decision about what card to choose.” Got that? New language! New (“responsible”) consumer choices! Same results: “If you don’t like it, you can close your account.” In July of last year, Rep. Maloney seemed to be amazed that Citi, Chase, and BoA, were continuing their predatory practices: “Issuers during this crisis should be using this period to adapt . . . , not raising rates and changing terms on those who are already meeting their obligations.” Yet now, she is praising them – because they are making terms “easy to understand” (with notices): “There are some companies that seem to get it. Chase and Citi have added cards and services to their lineup which are simple and easy to understand. Bank of America sent notices far in advance to their customers explaining the new rules.” Let us respond – vociferously. In this collusive scenario, our incensed reactions and motivated decisions are just as “clear-headed” now as before. When the Act failed to take effect immediately, and did not cap rates or fees, all the relevant “actors” indeed “[got] it” – as we, the public, proceeded “[getting] it” in our updated terms (so to speak).
Left out in the Bail Outs? Final straws as the colluding monopolies continue to pilfer us out of existence (at 30% rates)? Have they eased lending? Or, have most dominant lenders used their propped-up fortunes (borrowed at 0.25% rates) to expand (take) – without giving anything back (as supposedly intended)? In direct relation to the latter, as well as ongoing predatory practices from the credit card industry (syndicate), there are positively assertive ways to make stands for ourselves and our communities in this regressive environment:
Time For a Credit Union Movement:
Combined with the following, we can make significant impacts, while sending irrefutable (“bottom line”) messages:
Time for a Community Bank Movement:
Update (02-23-2013): More than three years since Predatory giants (like Capital One) caused uproars from millions, their practices remain the same. If my local credit union assesses a credit score of 796 combined with a perfect credit history as worthy of a new credit card account with more than double the credit limit and half the interest rate of a card I have maintained (in the most exemplary fashion) with Capital One for almost fifteen years, why would Capital One refuse to either lower the interest rate or raise my credit limit (on the same card/account they targeted along with almost everyone in the nation during their “Due to the Economic Environment” scam of 2008 and 2009)? Because a certain “Environment” continues – without repercussions (they can’t just laugh at).
The Washington Post’s publishing of complete propaganda from Peter G. Peterson (Fiscal TImes: “Support Grows for Tackling Nation’s Debt”) is another critical example of the end of all objective credibility within our predominant media landscape. This level of boldness makes it undeniably clear that the Ministry of Truth’s example, regardless of its ultimate immorality, is one now wholly embraced by the majority of the Fourth Estate. “Have you left no sense of decency?”
