This time around, they are far too silent, and far too removed from immediate consequence. That also will not do.

Did you get a chance to watch the Attorney General of the United States get shredded by the Senate Judiciary committee yesterday? Had this session taken place during the 70’s every TV network would have halted their regularly scheduled broadcast so that the American public could learn about the shocking criminal behavior of their government. The TV networks would have allowed the American public to watch their Attorney General get nailed for lying to Congress, to the American people and doing everything in his power to help the criminal administration of Dick Cheney and his front man George W. Bush, subvert the laws of our nation.
At one time a hearing like the one I watched yesterday would have jolted the American public into marching on the White House for the purpose of forcibly removing the criminals who have lied to them about virtually everything, while assaulting our liberties and eliminating our protection from corporations who are intent on harming us for profit.
Well maybe the major TV networks figured that with 500 or so cable networks they did not have to stop their broadcasts in order to bring this vital information to the American public…especially since we have so called news networks that are there to bring important information to the public 24 hours per day. Well…if you you believe that you would be wrong.
Yesterday was just another example of how the establishment news media in our nation is the greatest enemy to democracy and to the American people. So if you tuned into the evening â€œnewsâ€ programs on these networks expecting to see urgent discussions of what has been an unmentioned Constitutional crisis you would have found hour long discussions on another unimportant Hollywood brat who can’t control her opulent lifestyle.
First of all it baffles me that Larry King has a program on a network that calls itself a news network. This man has set the world record for unimportance. Actually he may be the most uninformed individual on CNN when it comes to actual news. Larry Kin’s vital news topic of the day: Lindsey Lohan! Then you have MSNBC’s Dan Abrams. Dan Abrams is not just a program host on MSNBC, he is the head of MSNBC news! His program topic last night…that same sleezebag drunk driving celebrity who can’t keep her underwear free legs closed for the paparazzi (look it up…it’s true)…Lindsey Lohan. Then again I am not sure who the real sleezbag is in this case; Lohan or Abrams! Think about it!
I will be a guest of the producers of the documentary film 9/11 Eyewitness this Sunday in NYC. All are invited to view the film. You can meet the producers and me at the film. I am not sure of there will be a Q&A session but I will surely hang around to meet people and answer questions after the film.
The film will be presented as part of the New York International Independent Film and Video Festival. The screening will start at 6:00 PM and will be shown at City Cinemas Village East. You can get your tickets here:
Information about the other films being shown during the festival can be found here:
I attended the opening of the festival last night and I can say there are several excellent documentaries that are being presented on a variety of topics ranging from Native Americans to the horrors of Darfur. Even if you do not attend the screening of 9/11 Eyewitness you are sure to find some fine films that suit your interests.
The producers are hoping to find companies that are willing to distribute the film domestically and internationally. It is hard to imagine a distribution company with the courage to screen 9/11 documentaries, but can you imagine what would happen if the many good documentaries on the subject were to hit the screens? It’s nice to dream once in a while… Think about it!

Not to worry, this is not about truth seekers or conspiracy theories. It is not about the long list of anomalies and discrepancies in the official story of 9/11. It is not even about the undeniable fact that the events of 9/11 gave George Bush and his handlers the keys to the neocon kingdom of empire. It really is not.
What it is about is the strangest phenomenon I can recall in my entire adult life. It is about what I perceive to be an extraordinary lapse in the logic of millions of otherwise sensible Americans. And it is about something I cannot wrap my mind around, no matter how I try. Maybe someone out there can help me understand what is going on.
In preface, let me also say that this is not about being uninformed. Granted, the corporate media have suppressed any discussion, debate or investigative reporting about the attacks on the United States that purportedly changed everything. That reality aside, even the most fawn-like pundits on the airwaves understand that the ship of state is sinking, and that it is time to challenge the lies of this administration. But, it seems that lie after lie has become fair game for disclosure, or at least for some discussion at this point. As a result, each day, the American people in larger and larger numbers understand that they have been taken for a terrible and costly ride by the lies they were told by this President and his cohorts.
That is, every lie but one.
Finally, nearly seven years after a stolen election that was itself based on lies, greater numbers of Americans are no longer blindly accepting the talking points emanating from the White House as the Gospel truth. In more and more media outlets the Bush lies are openly being identified as such, - rather than by every other euphemism meant to soften the ugliness of a government lying to its people. If people are not totally convinced, at least they hear debates and discussions and competing viewpoints. If nothing else, they are beginning to have doubts about the daily mantras that had them mesmerized for so long.
So, take a look at just the short list of these lies, so as better to understand my dilemma about the lone holdout: 9/11. Bear with me:
At this point in time, many, if not most Americans know that the men and women in the Bush White House clearly and deliberately LIED to them, both by omission and commission about:
- The Bush connection to the bin Laden family.
- Escorting dozens of members of the bin Laden family out of US after 9/11
- The Patriot Act having been written decades before 9/11
- The call for a new Pearl Harbor by the neocons who orchestrated the wars
- A totally invalid and false connection between Iraq and the phony War on Terror
- Regular, politically timed terror alerts
- Toxic air quality at Ground Zero after 9/11
- The junk science of Global Warming and its effects around the globe
- WH orders to suppress and politicize reports on by the Surgeon General
- Plans for wars with Iraq and Afghanistan that were made before 9/11
- Saddam Hussein’s possession of WMD
- Saddam Hussein’s connection to Al Qaeda
- Saddam Hussein’s involvement in 9/11
- Saddam Hussein’s threat to the US or his neighbors
- Having NO plans for an extended occupation of Iraq or for keeping the peace
- Inadequate armor and supplies for our men and women in uniform
- Supposed progress in Iraq, time after time
- Fudged numbers of civilian deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq
- The staged toppling of Saddam’s statue
- The staged rescue of Jessica Lynch
- The lies about Pat Tillman’s death by friendly fire
- Illegal warrantless spying on US citizens
- Torture at Abu Ghraib and other prisons in Iraq and Afghanistan
- Rendition of detainees to other countries for torture
- Outing Valerie Plame as a CIA operative
- White House involvement in the firing of federal prosecutors.
There are so many more lies to list, but I think you get the idea.
Am I wrong to believe that in any other life situation there would be a different reaction to a series of important lies? If you became aware that your plumber or your neighbor or your doctor, or anyone at all in your life lied to you over and over and over about issues that were relevant to your well being, would you ever again believe ANYTHING that person said to you? I really don’t think so.
So, after becoming aware of lie after lie after lie by Bushco, why would anyone in his or her right mind FULLY EMBRACE THE OFFICIAL STORY OF WHAT HAPPENED ON 9/11 WITHOUT A SINGLE QUESTION? Why would anyone in the United Sates of America conclude that the official version of the most important event in recent American history AS TOLD BY PROVEN LIARS is true?
Help me out here, please.
It makes no sense to me at all. Especially, since the most telling part of all this illogic is this: NONE OF THE LIES ON THE ABOVE LIST WOULD HAVE BEEN NECESSARY OR EVEN POSSIBLE WERE IT NOT FOR AN UNSWERVING ACCEPTANCE BY MOST AMERICANS OF THE OFFICIAL VERSION OF 9/11.
Bottom line: I fully understand how difficult it is to believe anything other than the official government story of 9/11. The editor of TvNewsLIES.org has examined the reasons behind the refusal of so many Americans to believe the mounds of evidence that challenge the credibility of the story we have been told. Fine and good.
But, frankly, for the purpose of this article, your personal opinion about who was responsible for 9/11 is irrelevant. It makes no difference at all. What matters is that we examine the strange illogic that stops millions of Americans from questioning a possible lie - one that may matter more than any other. These same Americans now seem willing to openly question many of the lies that are told and repeated ad nauseam by the President and his clan. They are now for more skeptical about their messages and far more hesitant to believe anything George W. Bush tells them in his speeches and press conferences.
But they still will not consider for a moment that the official story of 9/11 as told by this lying government may also be a lie. Ergo, the illogic I cannot understand..
The official story of 9/11 has been told by professional, experienced, and successful liars.
Think about that as you try to explain the need to believe it.
Maybe it will take another 9/11, as we’ve recently been warned may happen very soon, to convince Americans that the most egregious and damaging of all the lies told by the Bush administration must not remain off limits.
We really have few choices left. We have to reach that logical moment when we can openly discuss and debate and examine the available information about 9/11, no matter what the outcome may be. We have to retrieve our collective abilities to examine the events of that day. Perhaps, then, we finally can say about the lies we have heard:
…and then there were none.
UPDATED - 17-July-2007 - Reference:
While your enemies in the US establishment media scare you to death by over reporting about the dangers of some Chinese food products they continue to deny the American public about health hazards made in the good old USA! I don’t know if you remember when we reported this…but do a little googling about rocket fuel in milk! That would be American milk that you and your children drink that is produced by American cows in America that contains ROCKET fuel! Go ahead and look it up. Then ask yourselves why the bastards in the American establishment media are so focused on external threats and never warn you about internal threats. But that seems to be the theme these days anyway! Think about it!
What do mean by that headline? I mean that over 50% of America supports impeaching Dick Cheney (and almost as many support impeaching Bush), but as of today only 12 Representatives and 1 Senator are considering doing their job and representing the will of the people. Those 12 people comprise about 2.2% of the 535 members of Congress.
Let’s face it, this is only one example of how Congress does not in any way shape or form represent the public anymore. For example 95% of the people who contacted members of Congress prior to them giving George Bush unconstitutional war expressed their objection to doing so, yet Congress flatly ignored the people, as they do every single day. Well, make that every single day that they actually work! Think about it!
In a past life I was a highly regarded business professional and my advice was sought on the most complex managerial issues, especially those related to employee relations. One of the main points I tried to explain to people is that there is a difference between management and leadership. You can teach someone to be a manager but leadership is a quality; it can not be taught. You can teach leadership skills to a leader but you can not make a leader out of someone who is not, especially if his/her primary interest in leadership is to have power and be the boss. It’s like comedy; being funny is a quality not a skill. If you don’t have comedic qualities you can learn all the jokes in the world and you still won’t be funny.
An important point I would make when priming new first time managers is this: the first time you have to tell your staff that you are the boss, you’ve lost. I told them that when that happened it was best to pack up and go home. Nothing exhibits incompetence and weakness more than someone who has to tell you that he or she is your boss. You can smell leadership. You can sense it without a sentence being uttered. Having to say it only serves to prove that it is not obvious. What does that say to you?
Did you ever dance with someone who could not dance? Were you ever in a situation where you witness that person telling everyone around them how wonderful he or she dances? Well count the number of times over the past seven nightmare years that George W. Bush has had to tell us that he is the Commander in Chief or the President. Sorry George…but I’ve already seen you dance.. You can stop telling me now. Think about it!
Let’s be serious here, doctors and the entire medical industry are not experts in health, nor are they interested in keeping you healthy, they are experts in the application of medicine and medial procedures and they are in the business of making sure you need their services. Most doctors and all drug companies are in the business, yes I said business, of selling you medical solutions. They care not about your health for the most part and in many cases doctors don’t know a damn thing about health. As a matter of fact is is in their interest that you maintain a life of poor health.
I find it funny that with all the new talk about health care taking place thanks to Michael Moore’s new film Sicko, nobody points out the fact that the term â€œhealth careâ€ is being misused. Organic food companies, nutritional supplement companies, environmentalists, health clubs and gyms fall under the category of health care. Doctors and pharmaceuticals fall under the category of â€œmedical application specialists.â€ You go to a doctor these days for one reason and that is to find out what drugs you should be taking.
I have written quite a bit about health care and natural non-pharmaceutical cures for many problems ranging from strep throat to Cirrhosis of the liver, and if the â€œhealth careâ€ industry had it their way these cures would be taken off of the market and regulated as drugs. This is not because they care about your health, it is because they are in the business of selling you medical solutions and if anything interferes with that, like caring for your health, they oppose it.
If doctors cared about your health they would not be prescribing drugs that cause more problems than they supposedly address. There is actually one drug that has a commercial on TV during which they spend about 80% of the commercial taking about the risks of the drug and eventually say the most ridiculous marketing statement ever uttered on a commercial; they say that for â€œsomeâ€ patients the benefits of their product outweigh the risks! Think about that for a minute!
Anyway, take care of your health, and when you feel you need some medical solutions visit your doctor. But please don’t confuse the two! Think about it!
While the establishment news bozos bedazzle the American public with what appears to be be obsessive coverage of the 2008 presidential campaign, little if any useful information about the candidates is being reported. Don’t take my word for it.; take your word for it. Ask yourself if all of this establishment media news coverage you know one thing more about any of the candidates that really indicates what kind of president he or she would make?
I’ll tell you what you don’t know…you don’t even know who is running! With all of this extra time, almost an entire extra year of campaigning, the so called journalists of this nation should have done their job and informed the electorate about their political choices. You know nothing about Mike Gravel or the extremely popular and respectable Ron Paul. All you are told about these candidates is who is leading in the polls. Two years away from the election you are told who is leading! Why? The only reason they tell you this every day is so that after the election you will have enough historical reference to make you believe that the pre-selected winner was actually popular enough to win. Then you won’t question the voting results!
You hear gossip and poll results. You never hear about the positions of these people, their history, the links to lobby groups, their past efforts to fight for the citizens or their past actions that have resulted in defying the desires of the citizens. You hear nothing that helps you know about the people who are trying to take over our government.
With two years of coverage every American should be able to name every single candidate, not just the few establishment cronies. You should also know something about the candidates other than how much money they raised, how much their hair cuts cost and whether or not they are electable. If we had journalists in this nation WE would decide who is electable! It is not their job to tell us who is electable and that is exactly what they are telling us.
In their own way, right out in the open, the establishment media are telling the American public who the preselected candidates are and they will tell us who the next preselected president will be. It is a conspiracy. It is obvious. It is out in the open. And it is undeniable. The media are part of the establishment and they manipulate you into believing that you are part of a democracy or that America has some sort of representative government and the damn truth is that both notions are nothing more that a false reality created and maintained by the establishment media! You don’t have to believe me…just pay attention and you’ll see it for yourself! Think about it!
Why do Democrats still talk about impeaching George W. Bush and his Machiavellian Svengali Dick Cheney? Are Democrats so blind as not to realize that the system is broken? Do they really expect a criminally complicit Congress to go after some other criminals in White House? Has this “New Century” not served up sufficient evidence to prove that we are not participating in any democracy or representative government and that the entire system is a show? Have people not been paying attention to the most obvious conspiracy to deceive the American people about virtually every single important issue by the establishment media?
If the Scooter Libby technical pardon has not slapped your face with enough reality to wake you up, perhaps this will: nothing will become of this egregious abuse of power by George W. Bush, the Junior Soprano figure head to Dick Cheney’s Tony Soprano godfather! We may see some posturing, press conferences, useless Congressional resolutions and you may get some “action items” assigned to you by Moveon.org or other gatekeepers, but nothing will happen. What we have here are criminals protecting criminals. The system is broken. None of these people represent you and they are simply pretending to do just enough to keep you from taking up arms and killing them once and for all!
Smell the coffee…the Bush administration is in power thanks to an electoral coup; you know it, Congress knows it, the media knows it and everybody is pretending that this is politics as usual. The people who control our world yanked away every last bit of our democracy with installation of the Bush administration. Gore knew it, Kerry knew it, Edwards knew it, and the media knows it and nobody is going to say a damn thing because the people in charge own all of the above.
First they completely eliminated the risk posed by the Internet of real information bypassing the filter of the establishment media and influencing the citizens into voting for their own candidates, by using every dirty trick from deceptive paper ballots to easily manipulated computer voting machines. Then they scared you into letting them go about with the plans for a “New American Century” by conducting the events of 9/11 under the cloak of the military exercises that “coincidently” took place on the morning of 9/11. Then they laughed in your face as George W. Bush played the Emperor with no clothes as he lied to the world when he said that Saddam had weapons and then lied even more when he said that he had to bomb Iraq because Saddam refused to let the inspectors in; all the while the inspectors were already inspecting!!! The media and politicians still use the justification that Saddam could have avoided war if he had let the inspectors in. THEY WERE IN! EVERYONE KNOWS THAT! DOES THE NAME HANS BLIX RING A BELL? THE MEDIA JUST STAND THERE AND LET THE LIE CONTINUE AS THAT IS THEIR JOB! WHEN WILL AMERICA REALIZE THIS? WHEN WILL AMERICA GET UP AND STORM THE ESTABLISHMENT MEDIA OUTLETS AND QUARTER THE PEOPLE WHO WORK THERE?
You are lied to every single day about almost every single issue. The funny thing is that the truth is not hidden. You just don’t believe things unless the people on TV tell you that it is OK. The people who control the media know this! The people who comprise our media and our government are killing with every breath they take and with every word they use to deceive you. Your food, water, air and planet are being murdered forever by these people and you still trust them to keep you safe! OPEN YOUR EYES! THEY ARE KILLING YOU AND MAKING YOU DO NOTHING BUT WORK TO MAKE THEM RICH!
As I write this a man who invented a water powered car THIRTY YEARS AGO is being intentionally ignored by our media. As I write this there is another man at who invented a device that allows a car to run on water and you are not allowed to have this and the media won’t pay attention to this. As I write this another man sits on an accidentally discovered technology that allows salt water to burn as fuel but you won’t be allowed to benefit from this ever! This kind of story won’t be allowed to get past the local station that reports it! And guess what…here is another guy who had a similar discovery…Our government is trying to suppress his planet changing invention! AND YOU DON”T KNOW ABOUT IT!!! WHY NOT? WHO IS KEEPING THIS FROM YOU? As I write this there are mountains of evidence disproving almost every aspect of the official explanation of 9/11 yet you won’t look at it! As I write this there is an illegal private corporation that is not part of our government called the Federal Reserve that has illegally been given the right to create money out of nothing and then charge you and your government interest for borrowing this valueless paper! It was only after this little private bank started charging our government interest that you had to start paying income tax (another illegal reality) just so that you can pay these private bankers and make them the wealthiest people alive! That’s why the revolution took place…to get away from taxation without representation! We started this nation to get away from the Bank of England and here we are back with the same ole same ole! And good old Lou Dobbs won’t tell this to you…but you can check it out for yourself! Then you can tell me why you should not crack a bat over Lou Dobbs’ head for leaving that little tidbit out of his daily fight for the rights of the American worker! IT’S A SHOW! IT’S ALL A SHOW! WAKE UP!
Do you get it yet? There are two worlds out there: reality, and the world that the establishment media create and maintain at the behest of the establishment! It’s not hard to see…you just have to be willing to look! Will today’s news about Libby finally be the kick in the face you people need in order to see what is going on?
Wednesday we will celebrate Independence Day (although most of the clueless Americans think they are celebrating the 4th of July…the holiday is Independence Day!!!) May I be so bold as to say that if we are to survive, a new Independence Day is something that this nation and the world needs disparately! And may I say we start by exposing the media for what they are, the greatest enemy of the American people. By exposing them we render their distractions and delusions useless and then the rest of the criminals will no longer have the cloaking device to protect them from the citizens! Eliminate the cloak of the media and the rest of the criminals shall fall for the people will finally see the truth! Think about it!
