Oh the heights of irony...

Supposed experts interviewed by ABC News claim it is unethical to refuse the vaccine. “Does Americans’ right to determine what is best for themselves and their families trump the federal government’s efforts to head off what it believes could be a flu pandemic?” writes Patrick Jonsson for ABC News. “The US government says it has no intention of forcing vaccinations, but its entire flu strategy could be undermined – endangering public health, they say – if a substantial portion of the US population opts out of the $3 billion program.”

The corporate media’s own polls reveal that around two-thirds of parents have serious reservations about the vaccines’ effectiveness and safety. Millions of people simply distrust the government and do not buy into the propaganda.

“Many of the concerns by parents are based on the perception that this vaccine has been rushed into production and may not be safe,” Tom Skinner, a CDC spokesman, told Fox News. “We understand parents’ concerns – they want what is best for their children. We often tell people the best antidote for fear is information. And we ask them to really seek out sound and reliable information from sources they trust.”

According to the CDC, parents need to stop listening to a large number of doctors and virologists who say the vaccines are dangerous and instead get their information exclusively from the corporate media.

Corporate Media: Is Not Taking the Vaccine Unethical?
Kurt Nimmo, Infowars, October 12, 2009

I honestly don't even know where to begin... So the same media outlets that for years have been lying about things they did report on while covering up other things they had an obvious ethical obligation to report on are now trying to tell me what's ethical and what is not. The same people who have no problem quoting unnamed anonymous sources as if their words were the Gospel are now trying to teach me ethics.

Hey, ABC, where were you for Ellen Mariani? Because, see, your viewers may have cared to know that some of the victims of the crime of the century were less than happy about the story they were told about that crime. They may have also cared to know that the most serious post-9/11 terror attack on the US soil was planned not by a Muslim group but by American-born White anti-government extremists. Or those of your viewers who are concerned about their finances -and who isn't? - might want to know what their money is really worth. To that end would be nice of you to try and give them an idea as to what the Federal Reserve is all about. Strangely, I can not recall you ever covering the topic.

Just to clarify things a bit - this rant is not exclusively directed at the ABC News as pretty much all the major news outlets in the US and in much of the Western World act rather similarly. Well, they seem to be owned by pretty much the same group of players so why should that not be so?

Be that as it may - I would very much rather have an old whore extol the virtues of chastity to me than have mainstream media tell me what is or is not ethical for the simple reason that I expect the former to be far more entertaining than the latter. OK, mainstream media, now that you've heard this little rant - carry on. Keep on doin' Pravda and Der Sturmer proud!

The mainstream media: what - or who - is it made of?

This is just another perfect example of how uninformed these journalists are. But thinking back to my own education, I now see that there is method to this madness.

I graduated from the University of Miami with a BS in Broadcast Journalism. In my four years of "higher learning," never once do I recall a professor telling us to be even remotely skeptical of government mouthpieces. Never do I once recall a professor insisting that we do our own research. In fact, everything was about reading AP stories off the wire and re-writing them for our own purposes. It was about using correct grammar... saying "alleged" when appropriate... and meeting deadlines.

From what I have seen, today's journalists aren't doing any research. They are sitting in front of their computers, pulling stories off the wires and regurgitating facts while intermittently inserting their own opinions.

Whole Country "Saw" Plane Hit the Pentagon?

A nice flashback. Covers both the 9/11 and the media - a very well thought out view, in my humble opinion.

My short response to Ms Stillwell's article can be found here:
The Truth About 9/11 Conspiracy Theories

"I Love My Country" by Larken Rose

YouTube link

Ain in-depth comment by the author:
About the only complaint, which I got second hand, was that someone didn't like me making fun of his flag and his freedom. Well, the song doesn't make fun of the flag, but it does make fun of his LACK of freedom. What I suspect the person actually felt was that I was mocking his version of patriotism. And in a way, I probably was.

Occasionally someone tells me I'm a "true patriot." I assume they mean it to be nice, but I'm not fond of "patriotism" at all. What I'm loyal to, and what I love, is not about an imaginary line around a piece of dirt, or about people who live inside such a line. It's not about any flag, or any republic "for which it stands." What I care about is humanity, which requires free will, which in turn requires liberty. I don't much care WHERE it happens, or to whom it happens. I don't want freedom any less for the guy in Alberta than I do for the guy in New Mexico, nor do I feel any special connection or bond to one over the other.

The trouble is, what most people call "patriotism" is nothing but mindless pack mentality. They "love" what they call their country based purely on the ACCIDENT of where they were born. So, it follows, if they were born in Germany in 1900, they would have ended up as "patriotic" Nazis. What would be good about that?

Other people, when they speak of "patriotism," mean loyalty to the idea of FREEDOM, because of the role that idea played in the creation of this country. Okay, THAT is something worth feeling attached to, even if the idea was mangled and corrupted along the way (from the very beginning, actually). But I think the difference in how people react to my silly video depends upon WHAT they are loyal to. If they are loyal to a flag, or a piece of dirt, they will probably feel insulted by it. And they should be. If, on the other hand, they are loyal to the idea of FREEDOM, I think they will completely approve of the message.

Richard Gage invites you to attend an important presentation on the collapse of the 3 World Trade Center high-rises on 9/11.


I am the founder of the organization Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth which is a fast-growing collaboration of 899 architectural and engineering professionals and 4,945 other supporters. The last few years have witnessed the emergence of mounting scientific evidence that the collapses of the Twin Towers and WTC Building 7 were not adequately explained by the official theories outlined in the 2002 FEMA and 2005 NIST reports. The Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth call for a new, fully funded unimpeachable Congressional investigation with subpoena power.

We are dedicated to presenting the evidence that supports our call in this fascinating and myth-shatteringeducational event:

Come to any of our three New England area events. We will lay out the abundant evidence found at the 3 WTC high-rise “collapses”. Please attend and engage in the Q&A to follow.


What the Evidence Shows

Sounds of explosions coming from each of the WTC Twin Towers were heard well before the collapses began. These were reported by over 118 first responders in the FDNY recorded “oral histories” (the release of which was resisted by the City of NY until forced by a New York Times FOIA filing). Numerous accounts of “flashes of light” which commonly accompany the detonation of demolition charges were also reported. Video footage reveals the striking symmetry, explosiveness and rapidity of the Towers’ destruction. This differed from the more classic controlled demolition of WTC 7 in its extreme explosiveness.

Each rubble site contained tons of molten metal “flowing like lava” in the basements – as observed by Leslie Robertson, WTC structural engineer, and numerous other first responders. The temperatures of these flows were far in excess of anything possible from a jet fuel fire or from the burning contents of the buildings. Scientists have determined conclusively that thermate – a high-tech incendiary - was used. Chemical traces of thermate were found in the steel and dust. Each “collapse” exhibited thick billowing pyroclastic dust clouds that rapidly expanded to over ten times the volume of the buildings. Each also showed squibs (explosive ejections of pulverized building materials) easily observed in many of the videos. The twin towers were explained to have “pancaked” down, however there was no stack of floors found at the bottom – nearly everything was blown outside the footprint of the towers in a symmetrical pattern extending 1,200 feet in diameter around each building – and 90,000 tons of concrete , metal decking and floor trusses were completely missing from the debris field.

Blueprint For Truth - The Architecture of Destruction Produced by Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth (, this powerful documentary film presents explosive new evidence of controlled demolition in the 2001 attacks upon World Trade Centers 1, 2 and 7!

Most damaging to the official story, WTC building 7 was a 47-story high-rise not hit by an airplane and yet became the 3rd modern steel-framed skyscraper to collapse symmetrically at near free-fall speed on 9/11 – in the exact manner of a controlled demolition with explosives. It collapsed into a neat, compact pile, exhibiting ALL the classic features of controlled demolition:

  • Rapid onset of “collapse”
  • Sounds of explosions at ground floor – seconds prior to collapse initiation
  • Symmetrical “collapse” – through the path of greatest resistance – at near free-fall speed (i.e. the core columns offered no resistance)
  • “Collapses” into its own footprint – with the steel skeleton broken up for shipment
  • Massive volume of expanding pyroclastic dust clouds
  • Tons of molten metal found in basement by demolition workers
  • Chemical signature of thermate (a high-tech incendiary) found in slag and dust samples
  • Rapid oxidation and intergranular melting found (by FEMA) in the structural steel samples
  • Expert corroboration from controlled demolition professionals
  • Foreknowledge of “collapse” by First Responders, media, NYPD, FDNY, etc.

You can review all of this evidence and much more online at

Thank you - we look forward to meeting each of you!

Sincerely, Richard Gage, AIA,
Architect Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth

Vincent Caroll of "The Denver Post" trying his hand at hit pieces

The coincidence last Saturday was both ironic and nauseating. At the very moment when authorities were unearthing what could be the most sinister case of domestic terrorist activity since 9/11, with alleged links to the group that took down the World Trade Center, a local public television station blithely devoted much of its schedule to propaganda claiming al-Qaeda did no such thing.

Carroll: Public TV and the Truthers
Vincent Carroll, The Denver Post, Saturday, 26 September 2009

Oh, propaganda... I see, Mr Caroll. And of course all the many statements the government has made on the subject through its many mouthpieces have been all unadulterated truth, the whole truth and nothing but... Even when those statements happened to contradict each other. Even when they were later declared to be false, by none other than the very people whose job it was to come up with the governments official interpretation of the events... Yes, Mr Caroll, I mean the members of the 9/11 Commission.

At any rate, maybe I will write to Mr Caroll and see if he cares to expand on this. For now enjoy the article, the comments (where the author's profound lack of knowledge is exposed, as usual) as well as the discussion on The 9/11 Blogger.

This is a professional grade documentary examining the many aspects of 9/11 the US government and mainstream media have chosen to ignore, distort or conceal. Highly recommended.

Razing entire neighborhoods?

As reported by The Telegraph (US cities may have to be bulldozed in order to survive, June 12, 2009) about Flint, Michigan:
In Detroit, shattered by the woes of the US car industry, there are already plans to split it into a collection of small urban centres separated from each other by countryside.

"The real question is not whether these cities shrink – we're all shrinking – but whether we let it happen in a destructive or sustainable way," said Mr Kildee. "Decline is a fact of life in Flint. Resisting it is like resisting gravity."

Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of our fellow citizens are homeless. But instead of allowing them to find shelter in abandoned buildings we destroy the buildings. The accepted excuse is safety and health concerns. Is facing the elements safer? Try that out one fine Michigan winter...

The Emerging Gitmo Model?

While much of the "torture debate" has emphasized the so-called "enhanced interrogation techniques" defined by the twisted legal framework of the Office of Legal Council memos, IRF teams in effect operate at Guantánamo as an extrajudicial terror squad that has regularly brutalized prisoners outside of the interrogation room, gang beating them, forcing their heads into toilets, breaking bones, gouging their eyes, squeezing their testicles, urinating on a prisoner's head, banging their heads on concrete floors and hog-tying them -- sometimes leaving prisoners tied in excruciating positions for hours on end.

Little Known Military Thug Squad Still Brutalizing Prisoners at Gitmo Under Obama
Jeremy Scahill, AlterNet, May 15, 2009

Here's how your truly commented on this article in a private email:

Personally, I don't think even for a minute that this is about Gitmo, Al Qaeda, fighting terrorists, etc. as much as it is about developing and expanding totalitarian law enforcement and penal methods. Everybody and their brother knows that most of those people at Gitmo can be let go and nothing will change; at least, they can be treated with reasonable dignity and chances are they will be quite manageable. Give them their books, let them write letters home and receive letters, feed them three squares, and chances are there won't be any more problems than in any good ole' county jail.

Then what gives? What gives, I think, is that Gitmo is but a prototype, with a view of every police station and every county jail in the US of A being eventually gitmoized. And while they ain't there yet, not by a long shot, I can't help but say that some progress is apparantly being made in that direction.

Funny crimes of our times...

Boston Police said they made an unusual find after a drug raid Friday on a Roxbury apartment: counterfeit money.

Robert White, 50, was charged with possession of counterfeit money after police allegedly found 14 bogus $20 bills. He also faces a charge of knowingly being present where heroin is kept.

The money was funny: Boston man charged with possessing counterfeit money, The Boston Globe, Saturday, March 14, 2009

14 $20 bills is a grand total of $280. I don't know how well the counterfeiters knew their trade but it is entirely conceivable that they were at least good enough to make the bills look genuine to an untrained eye. And if Mr White was into counterfeiting himself I would guess the amount he would produce would likely exceed $280. So quite likely he is just being charged with not being a currency expert.

As for "knowingly being present where heroin is kept"... Doesn't that have somewhat of a ludicrous ring to it? I used to live in dormitories on campus, I knew there were drugs there... What was I supposed to do - sleep out in the cold?

And what if all that bad stuff was not off-limits?

In 2001, Portugal became the only EU-member state to decriminalize drugs, a distinction which continues through to the present. Last year, working with the Cato Institute, I went to that country in order to research the effects of the decriminalization law (which applies to all substances, including cocaine and heroin) and to interview both Portuguese and EU drug policy officials and analysts (the central EU drug policy monitoring agency is, by coincidence, based in Lisbon). Evaluating the policy strictly from an empirical perspective, decriminalization has been an unquestionable success, leading to improvements in virtually every relevant category and enabling Portugal to manage drug-related problems (and drug usage rates) far better than most Western nations that continue to treat adult drug consumption as a criminal offense.

Glenn Greenwald, The success of drug decriminalization in Portugal, Saturday, March 14, 2009

By the way, here in the US no drug laws existed prior to 1913 if memory serves. And best I know it's not like everyone here just became a junkie. A nation of junkies would hardly have been as powerful as successful as the US at the time.
