news = lies

A compilation of information supporting the truth that what we now call news is propaganda filled with lies to condition the masses thoughts, feelings and reactions.

JP Morgan buys the news.
Before Congressman Oscar Callaway left office, he demanded an investigation of JP Morgan & Co. He asserted that in 1917,  Morgan purchased control over America’s leading 25 newspapers in order to propagandize US public opinion in favor of his corporate and banking interests, including profits from US participation in the war.

The New York Times printed the story of Congressman Callaway’s call for investigation of J.P. Morgan.

Operation Mockingbird.
It was discovered in 1975 that The U.S. Government, all the way to at least the 1950’s, pays for and creates ‘pre-packaged’ (in other words manufactures, fakes) news stories to fool the people and further their agenda.

Jr. being questioned at a White House press conference about ‘pre-packaged’ news stories. I guess everyone forgot about the findings back in 1975.

Even Conan knows the news is scripted.

Seeing is not believing.

‘Branded Content’ isn’t news, it’s advertising.

There are still a few principled human beings working as journalists.

On August 24 2012, Dan Rather spoke with Gary Younge of The Guardian about the corruption in media. I feel he could have said more but am thankful he said as much as he did.

Amber Lyon, a three-time Emmy award winning journalist for CNN, said that mainstream media not only ‘reports’ canned news, they also take money from foreign dictators to run flattering propaganda pieces.

Ulrich Ulfkotte tells it like it is.

Never forget. The news lies.

the day they gassed veterans

A heinous part of American History that we all should know about, many don’t, is the Bonus Army March in 1932. After WWI, those who served in the corporate military were promised a ‘bonus’. They tried to collect but, those in Washington, wouldn’t make it easy.

bonus-army

In 1924, Congress had passed at Act called the World War Adjusted Compensation Act to help compensate WWI Veterans for lost wages during their service. The Act took into consideration time spent in the military between April 5, 1917 and July 1, 1919. The veterans were to receive $1.00 for each day served stateside; not to exceed $500, and $1.25 for each day served abroad; not to exceed $625.

Any veteran owed $50 or less was immediately paid in cash. Those owed more, were instead issued an ‘Adjusted Service Certificate’. These certificates were considered ‘insurance policies’ for the veterans. They were distributed in 1925, and would be redeemable 20 years later, in 1945, for an average payment of about $1,000 per veteran.

By 1932, the countries situation had taken a turn. The Depression was in full swing and these men were desperate as a result. They needed the money they were owed. A few decided to go to Washington to to let them know. Word spread through the country and, a few, turned into tens of thousands. Veterans, some with their families, worked their way to The Capital, sometimes jumping the tops of railroad cars.

Once they reached the Capital, the veterans built make-do tent cities around Washington. The camps were orderly. The veterans were not violent. They just wanted their money.

On June 17, 10,000 men of the Bonus Army gathered on the Capital grounds to learn that the Senate had defeated the bill that would have given the vets their money immediately by a vote of 62 to 18. The vets responded with stunned silence. Many of the men left the Capital after the decision came through but, many stayed. Many had nowhere else to go.

A ‘Death March’ started in front of the Capital. The men walked, some in bare feet, silently in front of the capital to show their disappointment and to protest the Senate’s decision. This went on for an entire month, until Congress adjourned on July 17.

On July 28, the evacuation of the remaining veterans of the Bond Army from all government property was ordered by Attorney General Mitchell. The Washington police were sent in to disperse the remaining members of the Bond Army but were met with resistance. Two veterans were shot and killed as a result.

After the police failed to evict the marchers, President Hoover ordered the Army in. By 4:45 that afternoon, General Douglas MacArthur, along with his liaison to police, Major Dwight D. Eisenhower, gathered Cavalry, led by Major George Patton, Infantry with fixed bayonets, and six tanks along Pennsylvania Ave. Assuming the military display was in their honor, the WWI Veterans cheered when they saw the troops lining the street. The Cavalry turned and charged, followed by Infantrymen throwing tear gas to disperse the marchers. They pushed the marchers back across the Anacostia River, into their camp where MacArthur ordered that the tent-town be burned.

July 28, Attorney General Mitchell ordered the evacuation of the veterans from all government property, Entrusted with the job, the Washington police met with resistance, shots were fired and two marchers killed. Learning of the shooting at lunch, President Hoover ordered the army to clear out the veterans. Infantry Troops prepare to evacuate the Bonus Army July 28, 1932 and cavalry supported by six tanks were dispatched with Chief of Staff General Douglas MacArthur in command. Major Dwight D. Eisenhower served as his liaison with Washington police and Major George Patton led the cavalry.  By 4:45 P.M. the troops were massed on Pennsylvania Ave. below the Capitol. Thousands of Civil Service employees spilled out of work and lined the streets to watch. The veterans, assuming the military display was in their honor, cheered. Suddenly Patton’s troopers turned and charged. “Shame, Shame” the spectators cried. Soldiers with fixed bayonets followed, hurling tear gas into the crowd.  By nightfall the BEF had retreated across the Anacostia River where Hoover ordered MacArthur to stop. Ignoring the command, the general led his infantry to the main camp. By early morning the 10,000 inhabitants were routed and the camp in flames. Two babies died and nearby hospitals overwhelmed with casualties. Eisenhower later wrote, “the whole scene was pitiful. The veterans were ragged, ill-fed, and felt themselves badly abused. To suddenly see the whole encampment going up in flames just added to the pity.”

… In July 1932, President Hoover ordered Major General Douglas MacArthur to disband the Bonus Army, who sent then Major George Patton with his cavalry and tanks to clear out the camps….

Under the then US Government President Hoover, General Douglas MacArthur directed the army; complete with infantry, cavalry, and tanks, to roll into Anacostia Flats where the veterans had been moved by the government. The active military, along with the police, followed orders and turned on the the WWI Veterans. They shot at them, gassed them, and burned their makeshift tent town to the ground. Ultimately, two were killed. All of their belongings destroyed.

Every year for the next four years, veterans marched to Washington to demand payment. Many of these men were sent to work camps in the Florida Keys. As a result, hundreds of them were killed in the Great Labor Day Hurricane of 1935. With wind gusts up to 200 miles per hour, a storm surge of approximately 18 to 20 feet swept over the islands. Ernest Hemingway happened to be in The Keys and witnessed the devastation first hand. He wrote an article about the tragedy titled, “Who Murdered the Vets? A First-Hand Report on the Florida Hurricane”, for The New Masses magazine.

An excerpt from that story:

‘It is not necessary to go into the deaths of the civilians and their families since they were on the Keys of their own free will; They made their living there, had property and knew the hazards involved. But the veterans had been sent there; they had no opportunity to leave, nor any protection against hurricanes; and they never had a chance for their lives. Who sent nearly a thousand war veterans, many of them husky, hard-working and simply out of luck, but many of them close to the border of pathological cases, to live in frame shacks on the Florida Keys in hurricane months’

– Earnest Hemingway, The New Masses, 1935

Read Hemingway’s entire article here.

After too much suffering, and too much loss by those who had served the corporation well, The Adjusted Compensation Payment Act was finally enacted on January 27, 1936. The Act replaced the Adjusted Compensation Act of 1924 and bonds were issued by the Treasury Department in denominations of $50. The bonds paid a 3% annual interest rate for the dates from June 15, 1936, to June 15, 1945.

  • They blame the entire tragedy on MacArthur but, who can be sure he wasn’t ‘just following orders’. That’s how it works. Subservient people pledge allegiance to the corporation, then they’re hung to dry if necessary.]

The Bonus March ultimately led to the now known GI Bill. The Bill ensures that those who serve are monetarily compensated for their time.

I can’t even begin to know the betrayal these WWI Veterans had to have felt at that moment in their lives. They were put through so much. I have much respect and admiration for them all. Here’s hoping that no more will ever have to know this level of dishonor again.

 

if this is what concern looks like, stop it

What has happened to the neighborhood?

You may have seen the story in your social media news feeds about two little girls selling lemonade in Texas. The police were called by a neighbor who was ‘concerned’ about the lemonade stand being too close to the curb.

free-the-lemonade

The story…

     The sisters said they were selling lemonade and popcorn at their home in the 200 block of Garden Club in Overton to raise money to take their father to a water park for Fathers’ Day.

Police Chief Clyde Carter shutdown the stand citing a city ordinance requiring them to have a peddler’s permit.

The girls may not be able sell their lemonade, but thanks to a loophole, they can give it away and accept donations from the public.

This story ended well. The girls had a lesson in corporate law and were given tickets by the water park when news of the story spread.

In Florida, a neighbor called police when they were ‘concerned’ about an 11 year old boy who was playing outside, in his yard, for 90 minutes, unattended. The police took the families two children and charged the parents with a felony.

free-the-kids

The story…

   The boy didn’t have a key, so he played basketball in the yard. He was alone for 90 minutes. A neighbor called the cops, and when the parents arrived—having been delayed by traffic and rain—they were arrested for negligence.

They were put in handcuffs, strip searched, fingerprinted, and held overnight in jail.

It would be a month before their sons—the 11-year-old and his 4-year-old brother—were allowed home again. Only after the eldest spoke up and begged a judge to give him back to his parents did the situation improve.

This ‘concerned’ neighbor almost destroyed a family for no reason other than their misplaced and misguided interest.

These kinds of stories aren’t unique. They’re easy to find. It happens a lot, everywhere. Of course the corporate laws put in place for no other reason than to control every aspect of our lives is the first thing that comes to mind but what really bothers me, why did theses people call the police? These are not things a person should call and ‘report’ to government officials.

If you are ‘concerned’ about your neighbors child’s lemonade stand being too close to the curb, get up, walk outside, and talk to the children. If necessary, talk to their parents. Express your concerns. Reasonable people will listen.

If it ‘concerns’ you that a neighborhood boy is playing outside, alone, for too long, go outside and talk to the child. Make sure he’s alright. If he’s not, help him out.

I don’t think it’s concern driving these people to ‘report’ their neighbors to government officials at all. I think the corporate government has been so effective in programming us in believing our duty, as good citizens, is to report each other when someone isn’t following the ‘rules’. No one feels any sense of responsibility for anything, even their own neighborhood. That’s been taken away from the minds of most people too. You know how people are always yelling at you to, ‘Wake up!’? This is what they’re telling you to wake up to.

Instead of being a ‘concerned’ neighbor, why not be a good neighbor? A fellow human being? Why not try talking amongst yourselves. It used to be that neighbors were ‘friends’ if only by association. Even if you didn’t really like each other, you had a bond. You took care of each other, of the neighborhood. You’re sharing the same little part of the Earth. Are we all so far gone that we can’t even communicate with one another without government intervention?

good-neighbors

I wait, patiently, for the day when all neighbors, everywhere become aware of what’s happening. For a day when we can live with each other without the government having to be involved. When kids can play, as kids should, and a lemonade stand popping up on the corner, is a reason to go out and have a chat, and catch up, with your neighbors. When being a community wasn’t legislated by government and upheld by ‘concerned’ citizens.

WAKE UP PEOPLE!

Former Marine gets schooled by former Marine, Adam Kokesh, on Major General Smedley Butler

Oh, I so hope he got that card and learned some more. So many think they’re proponents of freedom when really, they’re just walking oxymorons.

I DO NOT CONSENT!

Many have been emotionally manipulated into ‘believing’ that the flag of the US Government means something other than what it does.

They use heart felt imagery, goose-bump inducing ballads, and attribute some imaginary value to this piece of cloth. WE the people are the value!

us-flag

 participation = consent

Some will say, it represents this great land of freedom and all we’ve sacrificed to keep that freedom. First off, this great land is believed to be owned by a corporation called the US Government. Second, what freedom? You were born into a system of slavery that you had no say in. You are property, mere chattle, bought sold and traded on the stock market.

Some will say it doesn’t represent the government, it represents the people. This flag is hung in every government building. It flies at every government ceremony. It stands behind every President of the US Government Corporation. It is definitely their symbol.

And our Military? Love to each and every one of those kids who were tricked into thinking they were fighting for anything other than corporate profit. Truth is, we were all tricked. Lied to, manipulated, conned, deceived by sick psychopaths who don’t and CAN’T care about any of the things you hold dear.

We’re on the same team. We will overcome!

pick a side, any side

The big game of politics. It’s been a very effective tool for the control to distract us and manipulate our time and energy. Create ‘sides’, make them pick one, sit back and watch the battle begin.

You are being manipulated, tricked, lied to, and conned. You may not have realized yet but, your opinions don’t factor in on your government’s political stage.

government-not-left-or-right

Ask yourself, with your belief blinders off, what would be different now if the other guy won the last time? What will be different after the next election. When democrats win, what changes? When republicans win, what changes? Absolutely nothing! What Obama has done, Romney would have done, and so on, and so on… The problem continues to be the control system itself. Abandoning that system and creating something completely new is the only way anything will ever change. Some say the system is too far gone and too corrupt from the bottom to the top to fix. In truth, the system is set up to do exactly what it does and it’s working fabulously.

Voting? It doesn’t work. Time to do something different with your time, energy, and passion.

repeatThe control wants you to be distracted and busy. Politics is just one of the tools they use to do that. If you weren’t preoccupied with nonsense, you might realize what and who is causing the grief in your life and in your world. So much of our power is wasted backing a chosen party. Imagine what could be done when all people come together with that force to really change things for the better.

Imagine what you could do if you changed your focus. If you stopped arguing with others about how they’re wrong and you are right. How much of your time, how much of your energy, how much of your passion would you have to do something different? To improve the world. To improve your life and the lives of others.

Imagine the world you’d like to live in. We can do that, together. It’s in our hands and within our capability, not our country’s government.
