My Summer Vacation

Summer Vacation Among the Towers

By Volaar

I wish I had a good excuse for not writing much this past Summer.  I did notice a slight spike in trips to my blog for September 11, which I appreciate, but I am having trouble writing about much of anything anymore.  I find nausea to be my friend and constant companion.

When David Crosby, formerly of The Buffalo Springfield, burst onto the stage at Monterey Pop and announced that JFK had been assassinated as the result of a criminal conspiracy, the year was 1967, nearly four years and a million dreams after that dreadfully fateful day in November, 1963.  Continue reading

Major media articles on 9-11 raise questions

By Fred Burks
Want to Know

“It’s almost a culture of concealment, for lack of a better word. There were interviews made at the FAA’s New York center the night of 9/11 and those tapes were destroyed. The CIA tapes of the interrogations were destroyed. The story of 9/11 itself, to put it mildly, was distorted and was completely different from the way things happened.”
  — Time magazine article quoting John Farmer, Senior Council to the 9/11 Commission

Dear Southern Poverty Law Center and Department of Justice

Re: SPLC list of “Active Patriot Groups” and DOJ’s “Criminal Extremist List

I am wondering if you will start a Patriot Persons list to go along with your Patriot Groups list? If so, I’d like to apply. If your criteria* is the same for People as for Groups, I might be a pretty good fit!

I am definitely against any “New World Order” or “One World Government” scheme. The U.S. must remain a sovereign nation as outlined in our Constitution. (Besides, and I don’t mean to be catty here, but the idea doesn’t seem to be working out so bloody well for the EU.) Do you know if there is an active attempt by the U.S. government to join into a world government? If so, please let me know! I’d like to sign and circulate a petition against that.

Wikileaks’ Julian Assange and Conspiracy Theories

reddit

By Michael Collins

“I’m constantly annoyed that people are distracted by false conspiracies such as 9/11, when all around we provide evidence of real conspiracies, for war or mass financial fraud.” Julian Asange, Wikileaks, July 19 (Image right)

John Young was one of the co-founders of Wikileaks. He quickly left the organization in disagreement with some of its policies (CNET). Young was a natural choice for Wikileaks since he’s operated a leak website, CRYPTOME, since 1996. His site just released two articles on July 31 attributed to Wikileaks’ Julian Assange (me@i.1.org). The announcement read:

“These essays on conspiracies by Julian Assange (me@iq.org) were retrieved today from his website iq.org. The first from the currently active site, dated November 10, 2006, and the second at archive.org, dated December 3, 2006.” CRYPTOME – 31 July 2010 (author’s emphasis)

Sunstein’s Crackpot Theories

By Michael Collins

I’ve been trying to understand Cass Sunstein’s 2008 paper called, Conspiracy Theories. It’s the foundation for his proposed domestic spying program.  Obama appointed Sunstein administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, a part of the Office of Management and Budget. (Image) He wants to wage a “cognitive” war on conspiracy theories that clutter up the public thought space.  

Wikipedia provides a decent summary of Sunstein’s legal philosophy and reveals that Sunstein’s legal theories are somewhere on the border between crackpot and conspiracy theories:

The Poisoned Well

poison well cropdBy Sibel Edmonds

To Drink or Not to Drink

Once upon a time an evil warlock visits a kingdom and poisons the central well with a potion that drives people mad. The next morning all who drink from that well go crazy. The queen, however, knew about this in advance, and didn’t drink from the communal well. The next day, those who drank the poisoned water came to the queen and accused her of being the crazy one. The queen, aware of what had transpired, was faced with a dilemma: drink from the well and lose her sanity like the rest of her subjects, but remain queen; or don’t drink, remain sane, but be swept from power by those who would view her very sanity as madness.

Today in our nation those who refrain from drinking from the well poisoned by the establishment witch are categorized, marginalized, and labeled mad, crazy, extremist, conspiracy theorists, and other adjectives along the same line:   Continue reading
