The Pentagon Was Struck by an Aircraft - Ryan Dawson RECAP (Countering Disinformation)

If you think that a missile hit the Pentagon then you've been fooled by disinformation. The ground floor of the Pentagon is open plan. There are no walls to stop the wreckage going from one end to the other although there are columns. This link shows aircraft wreckage inside and outside the building.

It does not make much sense to fire a missile at the Pentagon when you just used two aircraft to hit the Twin Towers. The lack of decent footage, and potentially doctored security camera stills, has only served to cause a level of uncertainty about the basic details of what happened - especially for those that have not looked closely at all the evidence.

Acquilla Clemons: The Black Witness the Warren Commission Ignored

And although the Warren Commission interviewed 13 witnesses in connection to the Tippit murder, only two said they actually saw it take place. One, Domingo Benavides, could never positively identify Oswald as the shooter, and the other, Helen Markham, was inconsistent with her descriptions. She both described Oswald accurately (thin, balding) and inaccurately (pudgy with “bushy” hair.)

Yet there was one witness, with a clear view of Tippit’s shooting, who was startlingly consistent with her story. She also happened to be African-American. Her name was Acquilla Clemons and among conspiracy theorists her testimony is legendary because it was never formally taken.

She told investigators that she saw two men at the scene of the crime from her front porch. One had a pistol and was waving the other man away. The armed man was described by Clemons as “chunky,” “short” and “kind of heavy” and the other man was “tall” and “thin,” wearing a white shirt and khakis, neither of which matched Oswald’s appearance on that fateful day (source).

Remember that Oswald was arrested for the murder of Police Officer J.D. Tippet and not the murder of President Kennedy. If the people seen committing the Tippet murder did not match Oswald's appearance or dress then you can be sure Oswald's involvement in the murder of the President was not simply the activity of a lone gunman. He was singled out by others undoubtedly because he was the designated patsy.

Study Proves Vaccines — Not ‘Vaccine Refusers’ — Are Behind Whooping Cough Outbreaks

Scientists have now concluded that the effectiveness of the acellular pertussis vaccines (DTaP) available on the U.S. market today wanes after about five years. Apparently the old version of the pertussis vaccine was a whole cell vaccine, which supposedly lasted much longer; however, it was discontinued due to side effects such as inducing chronic neurological problems in some of the children who received it.

With this latest study, baboons recently vaccinated for whooping-cough were shown to actually carry the pertussis infection in their throats; although they themselves did not get sick, the vaccinated baboons readily spread the infection to other baboons who were not vaccinated.
Each DTaP shot contains the heavy metal aluminum (which bioaccumulates in the body), formaldehyde (great for preserving dead people and apparently awesome for a child’s developing brain as well), bovine protein (yummy) and the additive polysorbate 80 which has been linked to gastrointestinal problems, heart attacks, strokes, impaired immunity and tumor growth for starters.

The problem is not the concept of vaccination but how it is being handled. Harmful additives to the shots must be removed and more research conducted into the effectiveness and collateral impacts of the medical technology.

Jim Garrison Response to Media Smear Campaign - Kennedy Assassination

On July 15, 1967, NBC allowed New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison to respond to an NBC program that was highly critical of Garrison's pursuit of alleged Kennedy assassination conspirators in New Orleans.

Jim Garrison points out the fact that the public has been sold 'fairy tales' by 'honourable men' in Government and the media.  His concluding comments provide a warning to the population where he says he discovered things about human nature, government and the media he cared not to have known.

Quote: "Anyone who has done their homework knows that the single assassin theory is totally impossible."

The killing of JFK was a turning point in history. We have lived with the consequences of his death and the consequences of criminals operating in positions of power for many decades. We must seek truth and justice when crimes like this occur or else be condemned to a future of war and inequity where the majority will always be subject to the whims of those that pull the strings of power.

Keiser Report (E528): SME for Small & Medium Economies

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss WTF in the UK as RBS slaughters SMEs and then robs their still warm corpses; while over in the PRC, the PBOC has thrown a whole bunch of STFU at US Treasuries. They discuss the implications of both oil being priced in yuan on the Shanghai futures exchange and Iran being prohibited from trading oil for gold under the P5+1 deal. In the second half, Max interviews Alasdair Macleod of about 400 ounce London .995 gold bars being sent to Switzerland from Arab holders and melted down to 1 kilo .9999 bars, thus moving gold from the London standard, to the new better Chinese standard - suggesting we may be entering a post-petrodollar world. In which case, petrodollars could be flowing back into NY in pure dollar form to cause high inflation. And, finally, Max and Alasdair suggest that unless you rig gold markets, your forex and libor rigging won't work.

Interesting point about the US-Iran nuclear deal that requires them to sell oil without trading it for Gold. This will help the fraudsters keep the price of Gold relatively low.

RFK Assassination: Witnesses, Forensics and LAPD Cover-Up

Sirhan Sirhan, the guy in jail for the murder, could not have fired the lethal shots that the autopsy showed were fired at a range of between 1 and 3 inches (there were powder burns). Sirhan Sirhan was standing 3 to 6 feet away facing the victim.

A security guard on the day, Thane Eugene Cesar, was in the right location to be the assassin.

One of the witnesses in the clip above reported that a security guard was also firing his gun while Sirhan tried to kill RFK. Cesar, the guard, lied about his gun when interviewed.

If you don't look up basic details of the case you'll NEVER realise that the official account is a pack of lies.

Note: Political assassination goes on today. Here is a short list of some people killed over RECENT years  - journalists Gary Webb and Michael Hastings (this year!), Gareth Williams (the MI6 agent found dead in a padlocked bag in 2010), Yasser Arafat, Pat Tillman (Ex-NFL football player and US army ranger), Vince Foster (white house council to the Clintons), the killing of Ibragim Todashev (friend of the alleged Boston Bombers) shot 6 times including to the top of the head by the FBI, the murder of Barry Jennings (among others) as a witness to bombs going off inside World Trade Centre Building 7, the death of SEAL TEAM 6 (the alleged Bin Laden raiders) in a helicopter shoot down in Afghanistan (it looks like they were set up to be killed- with no air support, in a non-special ops helo, flying directly into a hostile area - their families are calling for an investigation) ... etc. If you can spill the beans on important issues you're dead - unless you can be effectively ridiculed.

Americans Are Finally Learning About False Flag Terror

Governments from around the world admit they carry out false flag terror:
  • A major with the Nazi SS admitted at the Nuremberg trials that – under orders from the chief of the Gestapo – he and some other Nazi operatives faked attacks on their own people and resources which they blamed on the Poles, to justify the invasion of Poland. Nazi general Franz Halder also testified at the Nuremberg trials that Nazi leader Hermann Goering admitted to setting fire to the German parliament building, and then falsely blaming the communists for the arson
  • Soviet leader  Nikita Khrushchev admitted in writing that the Soviet Union’s Red Army shelled the Russian village of Mainila in 1939, and declared that the fire originated from Finland as a basis launching the Winter War four days later
  • Israel admits that an Israeli terrorist cell operating in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including U.S. diplomatic facilities, then left behind “evidence” implicating the Arabs as the culprits (one of the bombs detonated prematurely, allowing the Egyptians to identify the bombers, and several of the Israelis later confessed) (and see this and this)
  • The CIA admits that it hired Iranians in the 1950′s to pose as Communists and stage bombings in Iran in order to turn the country against its democratically-elected prime minister
  • As admitted by the U.S. government, recently declassified documents show that in the 1960′s, the American Joint Chiefs of Staff signed off on a plan to blow up AMERICAN airplanes (using an elaborate plan involving the switching of airplanes), and also to commit terrorist acts on American soil, and then to blame it on the Cubans in order to justify an invasion of Cuba. See the following ABC news report; the official documents; and watch this interview with the former Washington Investigative Producer for ABC’s World News Tonight with Peter Jennings.
  • 2 years before, American Senator George Smathers had suggested that the U.S. make “a false attack made on Guantanamo Bay which would give us the excuse of actually fomenting a fight which would then give us the excuse to go in and [overthrow Castro]“.
  • And Official State Department documents show that – only nine months before the Joint Chiefs of Staff plan was proposed – the head of the Joint Chiefs and other high-level officials discussed blowing up a consulate in the Dominican Republic in order to justify an invasion of that country. The 3 plans were not carried out, but they were all discussed as serious proposals
  • A U.S. Congressional committee admitted that – as part of its “Cointelpro” campaign – the FBI had used many provocateurs in the 1950s through 1970s to carry out violent acts and falsely blame them on political activists

Israel’s Siege of Gaza Is Sadistic and Illegal, Yet US Support Continues

Israel’s blockade of Gaza has long been known for it’s cruel results in strangling the population. But two recent happenings – namely Egypt’s destruction of Gaza’s smuggling tunnels and Israel’s decision ratchet up the blockade by blocking construction materials – have made Gaza virtually "uninhabitable,
Gaza is facing a power crisis as a result of a shortage of fuel, with blackouts lasting 12-16 hours a day, according to Oxfam. Raw sewage has flooded streets in some areas of Gaza City following the closure of Gaza’s only power plant on 1 November, which made pump stations inoperative. Factories have been forced to cut production, leading to layoffs, and hospitals are running on emergency reserves. 
Oxfam said only 40% of Gaza’s fuel needs were being met and consumer prices for petrol and diesel had doubled. Less than 400,000 litres of fuel a day enter Gaza through official crossings, compared with 1m litres a day that were smuggled through the tunnels.
This sadistic economic strangulation of 1.6 million people is not just cruel, it’s illegal. A UN panel in September 2011 found that Israel’s blockade subjected Gazans to collective punishment in "flagrant contravention of international human rights and humanitarian law."

As one UN special rapporteur explained, about one third of Gaza’s arable land and 85 percent of its fishing waters are totally or partially inaccessible due to Israeli military measures, while at least two-thirds of Gazan households lack reliable access to food as a result of the blockade.

Escobar: Spin War Started in Geneva, but World Needs to Follow Deal

World powers and Iran have reached an historic nuclear deal - ending a decade-long deadlock over Tehran's nuclear ambitions. The breakthrough came on the fifth day of intense talks - after the Foreign Ministers from all six negotiating countries and Iran narrowed down the remaining obstacles in Geneva. Despite hailing the deal with Iran, US President Obama said the majority of American sanctions against Tehran will stay in place. Asia Times Correspondent Pepe Escobar joins RT to discuss this issue.

Great analysis by Escobar. All sides in the deal are trying to get what they want out of the agreement. According to the terms, Iran is not in violation of anything whereas they have already faced unjustifiable sanctions - they never broke the terms of the UN nuclear non-proliferation treaty.

Building 7: The Story the Times Missed - ReThink911

If the mainstream media ignore the 911 evidence then they must be held to account. This street action is excellent. Independent Media should launch a critical and sustained campaign asking questions of those that work in the mainstream media.

I addition to hounding the media for their lack of disclosure, information must also be given directly to the public and be available online so that we can circumvent the censorship.

Truth action is vital in unmasking the corrupt system so that the War on Terror can be ended. As soon as arrests begin (via an open and televised Grand Jury investigation) you will see a lot of rats leaving the ship.

Fukushima Nuclear Fallout Has Damaged the Thyroids of California Babies

A new study of the effects of tiny quantities of radioactive fallout from Fukushima on the health of babies born in California shows a significant excess of hypothyroidism caused by the radioactive contamination travelling 5,000 miles across the Pacific. The article will be published next week in the peer-reviewed journal Open Journal of Pediatrics.

 Congenital hypothyroidism is a rare but serious condition normally affecting about one child in 2,000, and one that demands clinical intervention – the growth of children suffering from the condition is affected if they are left untreated. All babies born in California are monitored at birth for Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) levels in blood, since high levels indicate hypothyroidism.

Joe Mangano and Janette Sherman of the Radiation and Public Health Project in New York, and Christopher Busby, guest researcher at Jacobs University, Bremen, examined congenital hypothyroidism (CH) rates in newborns using data obtained from the State of California over the period of the Fukushima explosions.

Their results are published in their paper Changes in confirmed plus borderline cases of congenital hypothyroidism in California as a function of environmental fallout from the Fukushima nuclear meltdown. The researchers compared data for babies exposed to radioactive Iodine-131 and born between March 17th and Dec 31st 2011 with unexposed babies born in 2011 before the exposures plus those born in 2012.

Confirmed cases of hypothyroidism, defined as those with TSH level greater than 29 units increased by 21% in the group of babies that were exposed to excess radioactive Iodine in the womb [*]. The same group of children had a 27% increase in ‘borderline cases’ [**].
Contrary to many reports, the explosion of the reactors and spent fuel pools at Fukushima produced levels of radioactive contamination which were comparable with the Chernobyl releases in 1986.

Using estimates made by the Norwegian Air Laboratory it is possible to estimate that more than 250PBq (200 x 1015) Bq of Iodine-131 (half life 8 days) were released at Fukushima.

This is also predicted by comparing the Caesium-137 estimates with I-131 releases from Chernobyl, quantities which caused the thyroid cancer epidemic in Byelarus, the Ukraine and parts of the Russian Republic.

The Fukushima catastrophe has been dismissed as a potential cause of health effects even in Japan, let alone as far away as California. And on what basis? Because the “dose” is too low.

This is the mantra chanted by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the World Health Organization (WHO, largely the same outfit), and the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR). And let’s not forget all the nuclear scientists who swooped down on Fukushima with their International Conferences and placatory soothing presentations.

This chant was heard after Chernobyl, after the nuclear site child leukemias; in the nuclear atmospheric test veterans cases; and in all the other clear situations which in any unbiased scientific arena would long ago have blown away the belief that low level internal exposures are safe.

But this one-size-fits-all concept of “dose” is the nuclear industry’s sinking ship. It provides essential cover for the use of uranium weapons, whether fission bombs or depleted uranium munitions; for the development of nuclear power stations like Hinkley Point; the burying of radioactive waste in landfills in middle England; releases of plutonium to the Irish Sea from Sellafield (where it drifts ashore and causes increases in cancer on the coasts of Wales and Ireland); and most recently, for the British Governments denial of excess cancers among nuclear test veterans.

If the earth suffers some kind of calamity, such as a large meteor strike into the ocean creating tsunamis, or the eruption of a supervolcano or some sort of contagion that causes either large loss of life globally or large scale destruction THEN many of the hundreds of nuclear reactors and spent fuel rods will lose their human components leading to MANY Fukushima/Chernobyl type events.

The present set of life forms on the surface of the Earth, and in the sea, will be in mortal danger for many years- perhaps decades or more- with various highly contaminated zones unliveable for centuries.

The quicker we replace the present nuclear reactors with either thorium reactors or renewables the better for our civilisation.

Common Chemicals Destroying Humanity, Suggests Prominent Journalist

They are literally all around us, yet most people are unaware of their invasive presence: chemicals, and especially the hormone-mimicking variety. Everything from plastic bottles and receipts to clothing and furniture is silently teeming with them, and one prominent New York Times (NYT) journalist suggests that they could be humanity’s undoing.

Also known as endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs), these hormone-mimicking compounds are increasingly turning up in scientific studies as a leading cause of many common conditions, including infertility, diabetes, obesity and cancer. Both males and females throughout the animal kingdom appear to be suffering genital deformities and other sex-related problems because of them, and males in particular are losing, well, their maleness.

While it was previously believed that these and other adverse effects were limited primarily to animals, emerging science continues to show that humans also stand to suffer from EDC exposure. For instance, Philip Landrigan, a professor of pediatrics at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, told the NYT that he has seen a doubling in cases of hypospadias, a misplacement of the urethra, in newborn boys, which he believes is a result of EDCs.

“Endocrine disruptors are everywhere,” writes Nicholas D. Kristof for the NYT. “They’re in thermal receipts that come out of gas pumps and ATMs. They’re in canned foods, cosmetics, plastics and food packaging. Test your blood or urine, and you’ll surely find them there, as well as in human breast milk and in cord blood of newborn babies.”

I would also suggest that these chemicals are altering the morphology of humans in the Western sphere - causing shortened legs and gigantism- features that do not easily jibe with simple explanations centred on nutrition.

UK Prime Minister Covers Up Crimes Against Humanity

The stumbling block – more of an Israeli-style “separation barrier” in reality – has been the correspondence between Tony Blair and George W. Bush, prior to an invasion and occupation, which former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan finally told the BBC was: “illegal” and that: “painful lessons” had been learned. (BBC 16th September 2004.) “Lessons” clearly not learned by the current British government.

The communications, in Sir John Chilcot’s words to former Cabinet Secretary Lord O’Donnell related to: “The question when and how the Prime Minister (Tony Blair) made commitments to the US about the UK’s involvement in military action in Iraq, and subsequent decisions on the UK’s continuing involvement, is central to its considerations.”(Guardian 17th July 2013.)
Center to the dispute between the Inquiry, Cameron and his ennobled gate keepers is material requested for inclusion in the final Report: “to reflect its analysis of discussions in Cabinet and Cabinet Committees and their significance.”

The documents being denied to the Inquiry include twenty five pieces of correspondence sent by Tony Blair to George W. Bush and one hundred and thirty documents relating to conversations between these lead plotters of Iraq‘s destruction. Additionally: “dozens of records of Cabinet meetings.”(i)
However, four years is a long time in politics and last week, as David Cameron traveled to Sri Lanka for the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting, it transpired that the documents Sir John Chilcot had been pursuing and been denied for six months have been also blocked by: “officials in the White House and the US Department of State who have refused to sanction any declassification of critical pre-and post-war communications between George W. Bush and Tony Blair.”

David Cameron is apparently also blocking evidence: “ … on Washington’s orders, from being included in the report of an expensive and lengthy British Inquiry.”(iii) Confirmation, were it ever needed, that Britain is the US 51st State, whose puppet Prime Ministers simply obey their Master’s voice.

However, “shame” clearly not being a word in Cameron‘s lexicon, he landed in Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon, a British Colony 1815-1948) as the above shoddy details broke, in full colonial mode.

Spectacular welcoming ceremonies barely over, he launched in to an entirely undiplomatic, public tirade, at this gathering of the “Commonwealth family of nations” alleging that his host, President Mahinda Rajapaksa was guilty of war crimes during the civil war with the Tamil Tigers. Not disputed is, as any conflict, that terrible crimes were committed on both sides. But these are accusations from the man both covering up the genesis of massacres of genocidal magnitude – and who enjoined in the near destruction of Libya, the resultant lynching of the country’s leader, the murder of his sons and small grand children and uncounted others in another decimation of a country who had threatened no other.

Cameron‘s Libya, is Blair’s Iraq. As Iraq, the dying continues daily.

The pontification also from a Prime Minister backing funding for the cannibalistic orientated insurgents in Syria, the beheading, dismembering, looting, displacing, kidnapping, chemical weapons lobbying, child killing, infanticide-bent crazies, including those from his own country.

The Role of the BBC in the Syrian Conflict

This is how the BBC website introduces a report by its BBC Panorama’s Syria correspondents Ian Pannell and Darren Conway on August the 30th, 2013. The story contained a video, ostensibly shot near Aleppo, Northern Syria, by an anonymous school headmaster, and documenting the aftermath of a napalm attack on his school, supposedly perpetrated by the Syrian armed forces on August 26th. According to the story, the “evil” forces of Bashar al-Assad, at a time when they had just about established their strategic advantage over the anti-government rebel forces and the foreign mercenaries they had been fighting for over two years, had found nothing better to do than attack a school, a target which presented no military interest whatsoever, with napalm – no less – just so the international media, and BBC Panorama in particular, could pick the story and broadcast it to Western audiences, in perfect timing to coincide with the British Parliament’s vote.

If I were running an intelligence agency I would populate the media with my own assets, especially  when it comes to the Managing Directors and editors of major news outlets. A number of corrupt or ideologically complaint reporters in the field would then do the dirty work on a number of issues. Anyone that didn't want to go along with the project would be fired (for reasons 'not related' to running propaganda stories).

Conspiracy to Tell the Truth: Interview with Lance deHaven-Smith [MUST SEE CLIP]

Abby Martin talks to Lance deHaven-Smith, Florida State University professor and author of 'Conspiracy Theory in America', about some the US' most controversial events and how labeling truth-seekers as 'conspiracy theorists' damages democracy.

Awesome history lesson on disinformation and a discussion about applying logic to suspicious circumstances. Everyone can ask questions, what is important is seeing what evidence there is that either supports or refutes the suspicions. Provable facts count, on a case by case basis, not generalisations. However, when we have a record of State criminality then it is rational to be immediately suspicious of many terrorist events.

Just remember the term 'State Crimes Against Democracy'. High level corruption doesn't just happen in third world dictatorships. A basic lesson for those unaware of the propaganda and corruption that surrounds us.

Debunking 'JFK: The Smoking Gun' - A Response to Questions about the Film

In an online discussion I was told to watch the documentary JFK: The Smoking Gun which some friends thought provided a good explanation of the killing - that Secret service Agent Hickey accidentally fired the fatal head shot. Having some understanding of the case I ventured the following reply:

I just watched the doco and I have to report it is another railroading of material to fit a hypothesis. You can check what I am saying by Googling the Warren Commission testimony to see if the doco is being truthful. It's not all bad because the show states that the official account cannot be true. That's a good starting point.

The present 'McLaren explanation' is based closely on the work of the Howard Donahue hypothesis. McLaren claims he 'forensically' examined the Warren Commission data but this looks to be false because he should have recognised multiple witness testimony to 4 shots - whereas he says there were only three in the scenario presented. He tells us the witnesses should lead us to solving the case but I don't think he followed his own advice. Implicitly he also fully believes much of the official account - key aspects of which have been shown to be highly improbable, if not false. [like the Magic Bullet theory]

At the start of the show we see that both McLaren and CBS TV (via their shooting recreation) doubt Oswald could have fired the three shots that the Warren Commission says were fired. The CBS recreation itself has problems because their 'car' does not slow down during the test firing. Anyway, like the testimony in the WC, the doco says that two of the shots were fired in quick succession - too fast for Oswald - but that three were still fired in total (to match their alleged witness testimony). The problem we face is that the show wants us to think that Oswald only fired twice and the Secret Service guy once. Three shots only. It says one shot missed because all researchers agree, including the WC - that a bullet struck the sidewalk. Consequently we are now left with ONE bullet hitting both JFK in the back and then Connelly - the magic bullet - to cause all the injuries, and the head shot.

McLaren and Donahue believe the magic bullet tale and that the bullet, Exhibit 399, smashed through tissue and bone to be only slightly deformed. E399 is clearly planted evidence. There is no way that bullet broke bone. Watch Mythbusters shooting stuff with various rounds, or even water with a high powered rifle, and see what happens. That slug didn't hit anything like bone.

Also, Governor Connelly clearly recalls that he heard gunfire, that the President had already been hit when he was turning in his car seat, and was THEN hit himself. The Zapruder film actually backs up his account. This means there were at least two separate hits and the miss into the sidewalk (3 shots) up to this point - before the final head shot.

Furthermore, Oswald could not have physically shot Kennedy in the back and Connelly with the same bullet.

The actual location of the wound in JFK's back was at least 5 inches below the bottom of his collar, NOT in his lower neck. Even [with JFK] leaning forward Oswald's shot could not possibly line up with Connelly. Google image JFK jacket and then JFK shirt. It has been claimed that JFK's jacket rode up so that it only looked like he was struck low but his shirt could not have performed the same manoeuvre if it was tucked into his pants. In any event the folding -especially the shirt- cannot make up four or five inches of distance.

The show has serious problems with how it handles the witnesses they highlight and how they don't fully relate what they say to railroad their hypothesis.

The testimony of James Humes M.D. is used to represent the material released by the Bethesda examination, that was by all accounts very poorly handled - it appears to be fraudulent. The show mentions the gag order placed on people in attendance, which the radiologist, Jerrol Custer, recalls later in show. Custer in other separate interviews points to a cover-up of the forensic data and indicates a large wound to the rear of JFK's skull.

Humes' account conflicts with those at Parkland who also saw a large exit wound in the right rear portion of JFK's skull. This is one of the main problems with the show in relation to the forensics - it takes the overall WC conclusions at face value in terms of vetting/accepting evidence. It ignored conflicting testimony and photographs including various pictures from the autopsy (ie the shirt, and one of the head taken from the side). 

The show completely ignored what occurred at Parkland beyond the fact there was an argument with the Secret Service. No mention is made of the accounts by the medical staff who viewed the body of the President.

When it came to linking the head shot to Secret Service agent Hickey the show makes only one claim it supports with testimony - that of Sam Holland who said he saw the SS agent pull a weapon after the first shot. The show leaves out the fact that this is the same Sam Hickey who stood on the overpass with other witnesses and stated he saw a white puff of smoke coming from the grassy knoll. The affidavit read by the actor playing Hickey only spoke the last three or four sentences from his Dallas testimony. They left out the fact that he said he heard 4 gunshots and saw the smoke from the knoll.

The other two witnesses appearing in the show, the police officer and Senator Ralph Yarborough say they saw the SS gun pulled at a time after the last shot. These people do not say they saw any gun before this point. We are then told that there are other witnesses to the gun being pulled before the final shot, which we are supposed to believe at face value. This is not a convincing argument in light of their on camera examples.

One point that comes out in the doco is the fact that gunsmoke was smelt by many at ground level - indicating there was at least one shooter in relatively close proximity.

Final point. All the evidence coming directly from the authorities, who were shown in the doco to be involved in a cover-up of some kind, must be suspect and their material treated carefully. Even the Zapruder film appears to be altered. A witness to an early screening of this film, before it was confiscated, says that their was white spray all over the place during the head shot and that it lasted for a while - much longer then the red blotch we see today. Also the cop on the bike got blasted with brain matter and so did the SS agents in the car behind (the latter example clearly mentioned in the doco). This seems indicative of a substantial rear exit wound.

The 'JKF: Smoking Gun' doco does not substantiate its hypothesis. Some its claims are refuted or are impossible considering a fuller account of the specific points it raises. Apologies for the long winded reply, but if I had just put up a short retort it would not have helped much in understanding the problems with such a slick production. 

I found a very short and concise refutation of the Howard Donahue hypothesis that can be found at the following link:

Did a Secret Service Agent Accidentally Shoot JFK in the Head?

It's a quick read that respectfully addresses the failings of Donahue's analysis. Thanks for making it this far if you have read to the end! :)

Connelly Describing His Wound in JFK Murder - AFTER Kennedy Had Been Hit the First Time (Four Shots)

Texas Governor John Connelly describing his wounding in the JFK assassination. Of significance, notice that John Connally is NOT bent over for several seconds AFTER we see him emerge from behind the sign. John Connally was shot in the back AFTER President Kennedy was shot in the back/neck.

Remember the official story has JFK shot through the neck, with the first round, simultaneous to Connolly being hit. Yet we have Connolly indicating he was still unhurt after already hearing the first shot. The Zapruder film confirms this account rather than the official narrative.

So we have one shot to JFK's neck, one into the road, one to Connolly and one more to JFK's head. That is 4. The sound recording also shows that there were at least 4, maybe up to 7 shots. If there were more than 3 shots, then there must have been more than one shooter.

RECAP: Joe Rogan - The JFK Magic Bullet and Assessing the Evidence

[Language Warning] Joe Rogan points out the ridiculousness of the official story of the JFK "magic bullet" theory as described by the Warren Commission.

Joe Rogan's very sensible recommendation in regard to evaluating evidence in difficult-to-follow crimes, where a cover-up is likely underway, is to look for fundamental facts that are 'etched in stone'. In the case of the JFK assassination, the magic bullet theory is central to the Government's simple single shooter narrative. Without it, things become much more complicated.   

And the relevance of this assassination should be apparent - for when past injustices have not been righted we must end up dealing with the legacy of institutionalised corruption, with people who can commit and then cover-up heinous criminal acts. Those truly responsible for this murder were NEVER brought to justice and those that replaced them were more than likely continuing in a similar way, lest later inquires be opened to uncover the truth.

Related Info:

Hiding Evidence is one way to avoid prosecution, although doing so is still a crime - and getting caught can have serious consequences. The matter of 'Stealing JFK's Body' touches on corrupting, or strong-arming, those who work in state-run institutions - like medical doctors or military professionals - in order to hide critical evidence:

The Men Who Killed Kennedy - Stealing JFK's Body


Murdering credible witnesses is another way to keep a lid on the truth:

Expert Witness to the Kennedy Assassination - Killed

There were dozens of eye witnesses to the Kennedy assassination including trained ones like police officers. They were ordered to keep their mouths shut about what they saw – and most did. Those who did not were warned, harassed, and if they were persistent and their testimony dangerous enough, they were eliminated.

This guy's story is very much at odds with the official account - plus he tells of many other witnesses who were murdered. Watch til the end.

And lastly, understanding the political situation and understanding that those in authority are not necessarily the moral people we might think they are, as implied in the media, is imperative. Blackmail, bribery and all manner of underhanded dealings can factor into the workings of State. 

Hoover, The Mob, LBJ and The Texas Connection

Obviously there are parallels to what occurred with the JFK assassination and 911.

Whistleblower Haim Bodek Explains High-Frequency Trading "Scalpers" & Stock Exchange Back Doors

Ever since one former Goldman trader, Haim Bodek, told the SEC that stock exchanges are giving high frequency trading firms an advantage over average investors, HFT has become the hot topic of conversation. But the problem with that is, despite the fact that 60% of all trading is HFT, people rarely know how HFT works, what the relationship between exchanges and high frequency traders really is, or what's at stake for regular investors.

The queue jumping scalpers (see clip) can resell their tickets (stocks) at whatever price they want - to drive up, or drive down, prices - before you get a chance to buy your ticket (stocks). The scalpers can also give price signals without buying stocks to do the same thing. That's the scam.

The West is the Architect of Terrorism in Syria

The conflict is a proxy war being run by the West. Without Western intervention and foreign fighters there would have been no war.

JFK Assassination Zapruder Stabilized Motion Panorama HD plus SloMo - 50th Anniversary

This clip's frames have been interpolated to playback at 30 frames per second; the SloMo portion has 4 interpolated frames for each real frame; the original film frame rate was 18fps

As reported by the witnesses to the shooting, the car carrying the President slows down significantly right before the head shot.

One must also consider that the Zapruder film released by the Government may have been altered - just as the autopsy photos were altered, and details in the Warren Report were altered.

It seems the speed of the car was disguised in the copy given to the public so that it looks like the car kept a constant speed. If this were true then how did the secret service guy manage to run and jump onto the rear? Also, the motorcycle escorts can be seen overshooting the car as it slows down.

Another alteration may include the frontal blast pattern. The Dallas doctors and many other witnesses reported a huge exist wound to the right rear portion of the President's skull. Brain matter was blasted out onto the trunk of the car, which Jackie Kennedy retrieved. The head moves 'back and to the left'. These are all indications of a shot from the front. The film may have been doctored so that the blast pattern appears more towards the front. In any event, the head moves as if shot from a frontal position.

Some who defend the official story have argued that the expulsion of material caused the head to move back, but this would not be sufficient to overcome the kinetic energy of a round that would push the head forward if Oswald had shot from the rear. The head in the film moves backwards. A good experiment would be to film a large grapefruit attached to a stick, positioned slightly forward, and to shoot it to see the direction of movement.
Naturally we are assuming the Zapruder film has only been slightly modified in terms of the head shot features. If the film has undergone more significant changes then we should rely more on the witness testimonies and the splatter reported by those that were hit by debris such as the motorcycle escort and the secret service agents to the REAR of JFK's car.

JFK: The Negotiator

The greatest achievement of John F. Kennedy’s presidency was resolving the Cuban Missile Crisis in the fall of 1962.

Agreement wasn’t a foregone conclusion. Kennedy himself calculated that the chance of a nuclear catastrophe were at least one in three, maybe higher. But he had learned a lot about negotiating from his failed summit talk with Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev a year earlier in Vienna. Those lessons still apply today. And they apply to everyday transactions.
First, Kennedy was agile strategically. Among his own advisors, hawks argued strongly for immediate attacks on the missile sites being built in Cuba. Kennedy understood that military action might soon be necessary but he was determined to use the limited time available to pursue alternatives that wouldn’t trigger World War III. Imposing a blockade on Cuba (he called it a “quarantine”) was less provocative and gave him the chance to negotiate.
Second, he stress-tested his options by actively seeking counsel from experts with widely divergent views. As a result, he avoided the “confirmation bias” trap, that is, being told only what others thought he wanted to hear. As a result he fully understood the risks entailed in whatever path he might take.

Third, he used multiple channels of communication, instead of relying solely on formal messages telexed back-and-forth between Washington and Moscow. Much later it was learned that Kennedy’s brother Robert (who was also Attorney General) held three secret meetings with Soviet Ambassador to the US, Anatoly Dobrynin. In these private sessions they floated proposals and developed a measure of personal trust.

Fourth, the President understood that the other side was not monolithic. Just as with his White House advisers, there were hawks and doves within the Kremlin. He had to craft a resolution that would have sufficient support within both governments, but he didn’t have to please the hardest-to-please parties.

Fifth, Kennedy allowed Khrushchev to save face. In return for the Soviets’ removing their missiles in Cuba, the president publicly pledged that the United States would never invade that country. Given the humiliating Bay of Pigs fiasco in 1961, there was little likelihood that the US would make another such attempt, but the guarantee gave the Premier something he could trumpet as a victory. My friend Bill Ury calls this tactic “building a golden bridge.” It enables a counterpart to justify an agreement to others (and also to himself).

Finally, Kennedy enriched the deal with a side agreement. On the twelfth day of the standoff, with tensions mounting, Khrushchev sent a letter that made it seem that a deal was imminent. But then several hours later a more belligerent message appeared, with added demands, including insistence on US removal of Jupiter missiles it had installed in Turkey, bordering the Soviet Union.

British Intelligence Operation to Kidnap Snowden? Number One MI-6 Officer Working Undercover in Moscow Embassy

Britain‘s spy-infested embassy in Moscow has taken the lead among the “FIVE EYES" signals intelligence allies to locate the whereabouts of National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden in Russia. In fact, the British government is more avid in its desire to locate and possibly rendition Snowden to the United Kingdom or United States than is either the U.S. or the other governments of the FIVE EYES signals intelligence (SIGINT) partnership, which also includes Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

Britain‘s desire to bag Snowden has more to do with the alleged damage his revelations caused British electronic surveillance operations around the world than any desire to ingratiate Britain‘s Government Communications Headquarters (GHCQ) and Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) with their American counterparts, the NSA and CIA, respectively.

The government of Prime Minister David Cameron has made it clear that it views Snowden, as well as those who have assisted him in the publication of NSA‘s and GCHQ’s most closely-guarded espionage secrets as “terrorists".

I would be sympathetic to the revelations against State vs State spying but the fact remains that the intelligence agencies run or sponsor terrorists. The NSA spying is not used to stop terrorism - it is used for blackmail and to spy on people who might expose State sponsored spying, murder and other crimes.

CIA Document 1035-960 - Concerning Criticism of the Warren Report

3. Action. We do not recommend that discussion of the assassination question be initiated where it is not already taking place. Where discussion is active [business] addresses are requested:

a. To discuss the publicity problem with [?] and friendly elite contacts (especially politicians and editors), pointing out that the Warren Commission made as thorough an investigation as humanly possible, that the charges of the critics are without serious foundation, and that further speculative discussion only plays into the hands of the opposition. Point out also that parts of the conspiracy talk appear to be deliberately generated by Communist propagandists. Urge them to use their influence to discourage unfounded and irresponsible speculation.

b. To employ propaganda assets to [negate] and refute the attacks of the critics. Book reviews and feature articles are particularly appropriate for this purpose. The unclassified attachments to this guidance should provide useful background material for passing to assets. Our ploy should point out, as applicable, that the critics are (I) wedded to theories adopted before the evidence was in, (I) politically interested, (III) financially interested, (IV) hasty and inaccurate in their research, or (V) infatuated with their own theories. In the course of discussions of the whole phenomenon of criticism, a useful strategy may be to single out Epstein's theory for attack, using the attached Fletcher [?] article and Spectator piece for background. (Although Mark Lane's book is much less convincing that Epstein's and comes off badly where confronted by knowledgeable critics, it is also much more difficult to answer as a whole, as one becomes lost in a morass of unrelated details.)

The same tactics outlined here are being used with the 911 evidence. Fortunately for interested observers, the evidence proving State involvement in these sorts of crimes is damning. The official smoke screen does not work when you look at particular aspects of the case particularly the physical evidence like the magic bullet for JFK or the Molten Steel and Free fall collapse seen with the World Trade Centre demolitions on 911. That kind of evidence REFUTES the official narratives.

Saudis Team up with Israel to Plan Strike Against Iran - Report

Although Israel and Saudi Arabia officially have no diplomatic relations - they're rumoured to be preparing a joint bombing campaign against Iran. The Sunday Times suggests an attack may take place if a new round of international talks fails to produce a deal rolling back Tehran's nuclear power programme. Israel considers Iran its enemy-number-one, and has long accused the country of working on an atomic bomb, a charge that Iran denies.

Deep beneath MELTING ANTARCTIC ice: An active VOLCANO

Pity poor Antarctica: already shedding its land (but not its sea) ice, it's now been found to conceal a volcano of some considerable size beneath its frosty coating.

Like a nicotine addict making a desperate attempt to hide in an airline toilet, this smoker had itself hidden – but instead of a couple of centimetres of door, its presence was concealed underneath the glaciers in the vicinity of Mount Sidley.

There are also a great many active underwater volcanos that impact upon the environment that are not measured in climate studies. We already know that large scale eruptions impact the global climate when they occur on the surface - one would expect some level of impact, perhaps only locally - to the oceans from any undersea eruptions.

'FBI Directed My attacks on Foreign Government Sites

The Anonymous hacktivist sentenced on Friday to 10 years in federal prison for his role in releasing thousands of emails from the private intelligence firm Stratfor has told a Manhattan court that he was directed by an FBI informant to break into the official websites of several governments around the world.

Jeremy Hammond, 28, told a federal court for the southern district of New York that a fellow hacker who went under the internet pseudonym “Sabu” had supplied him with lists of websites that were vulnerable to attack, including those of many foreign countries. The defendant mentioned specifically Brazil, Iran and Turkey before being stopped by judge Loretta Preska, who had ruled previously that the names of all the countries involved should be redacted to retain their secrecy.
In his own case, he said that as a result of the Stratfor hack, “some of the dangers of the unregulated private intelligence industry are now known. It has been revealed through Wikileaks and other journalists around the world that Stratfor maintained a worldwide network of informants that they used to engage in intrusive and possibly illegal surveillance activities on behalf of large multinational corporations.”

Break into overseas websites = no convictions.
Break into corrupt US intelligence linked corporation = ten year prison sentence.

What to Make of the NY Times Ignoring the Campaign?

ReThink911’s “New York Times Billboard” - Photo: Scott Star

What are we to make of the NY Times ignoring the campaign's above pictured sign directly adjacent to their building, the accompanying open letter to the Times, and over 500 letters from campaign supporters? 9/11 truth "debunkers" might have you believe this is evidence that controlled demolition theories are a bunch of hooey. However, while recently reading the excellent book 9/11 The Simple Facts - Why the Official Story Can't Possibly be True, I came across this little tidbit that I think sheds some light on the situation.
The very fact that people think they would know about something as major as 9/11 being an inside job is one of the main things that helps keep that awareness out of their consciousness. Here's a nonpolitical example:
The Wright brothers first successful flight, in December 1903, was long called a hoax by both the New York Times and the Scientific American. People believed that because they figured if the Wright brothers actually had flown, they surely would have read about the New York Times or the Scientific American. Even as late as 1906, the Paris edition of the Herald Tribune could headline an article on the Wright brothers: Flyers or Liars?
Mark Twain supposedly once said, If you don't read the newspaper, you're uninformed. If you do read the newspaper, you're misinformed. The blow-dried airheads on TV don't help, as they chime in with, "Oh, that's just a conspiracy theory. Ignore it and watch this cute story about a cat that's learned how to knit."

And it isn't necessarily just ignorance either. Former Deputy CIA Director Frank Wiser used to refer to the media as "The Mighty Wurlitzer"--for his ability to make it play whatever tunes he wanted."

(I'm not implying that the CIA was involved in 9/11. I'm just giving you an idea of how thoroughly some parts of the government control the mainstream media...or at least think they do.)
This underestimation of the power of scientific discovery even extended to the venerable New York Times. (In 1903, the Times declared that flying machines were a waste of time, just a week before the Wright brothers successfully flew their airplane at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In 1920, the Times criticized rocket scientist Robert Goddard, declaring his work nonsense because rockets cannot move in a vacuum. Forty-nine years later, when Apollo 11 astronauts landed on the moon, the Times, to its credit, ran the retraction: "It is now definitely established that a rocket can function in a vacuum. The Times regrets the error.")
But that was a long time ago you say? Well just this year a Times story omitted and distorted facts regarding autism in a story headlined with what the Times dubbed a link to Autism and a "cancer gene." Emily Willingham at Forbes explained, among other things that, "the gene in question isn’t just a 'cancer gene.' It’s a gene that regulates the cell cycle, and changes in these genes can and do have effects that aren’t confined to cancer. Calling it a 'cancer' gene in this context is inflammatory, at best." Concluding her article by stating, " Autistic people and their families deserve more care than this, and readers of the New York Times deserve careful, accurate science writing placed in an appropriate context."

This isn't to say the Times does bad science reporting in general, I don't know if that's the case or not, it's just to say that readers should not decide issues based on the paper's choice of coverage, or the coverage itself, before looking into the issue themselves. As ReThink911's billboard says, The Evidence Might Surprise You.

So is it a worthy effort on the part of the ReThink911 campaign to get Times coverage? Absolutely. If the coverage was the least bit fair it would surely awaken many who dismiss 9/11 truth issues because "they surely would have read about the New York Times." That said, I think it's equally important, to let those people who stumble across the campaign and wonder why the Times ignored the sign and letters, know about the history demonstrating that the Times non-reaction doesn't necessarily reflect their being on the side of truth in matters. And of course this would also apply to any negative coverage, which both the Times and Scientific American have given the 9/11 truth movement in the past.
