Many of these lies are not so obvious, however given that the lies of 9/11/2001 are founded upon things that clearly violate the laws of physics, why is it not obvious to ALL people?

Well, If you told people that, it would be a tough pill to swallow. So tough that most people choke on it. The distress that arises with the growing realization of the pervasive lies is too much to bear.

Well, truth is: The Palestinians’ inalienable right to resist

We remembered all the miseries, all the injustices, our people and the conditions they lived, the coldness with which world opinion looks at our cause, and so we felt that we will not permit them to crush us. We will defend ourselves and our revolution by every way and every means.

--- George Habash (1926-2008)

A freedom fighter learns the hard way that it is the oppressor who defines the nature of the struggle, and the oppressed is often left no recourse but to use methods that mirror those of the oppressor.

------ Nelson Mandela (1918-2013)

Truth is:

Bush in Ireland in 2004. He teaches politics and international relations part-time at the University of Limerick. He completed a PhD thesis on reform of the United Nations in 2008 and has a master’s degree in peace studies and a B.A. degree in History, Politics, and Social Studies.

I recall a study during Reagan's term about trusting official sources (AKA professional liars).

The study found that the more people watched mainstream media, the less they knew about US war crimes.

It just got worse since then.

Freedom is slavery.

Oh...OUCH! Is that cognitive dissonance giving me the migrane? Poor me!! I better take some meds to ease that CRUSHING brain-pain! ...wimpy cop-out! The old saying, "no pain, no gain" is relevant to the self-neurosurgery needed to grow into a fully cognizant human which is necessary for basic survival in the many versions of Meat-Head Realities we've all been manipulated into, like a lump of marinated meat and divided/chopped into smaller versions by psychopathic Benihana-like hibachi chefs. The pain is temporary but excruciatingly painful too see the truths , so painful many will reach for the wrong pill. Unfortunately, it will be thousands of times more painful to ignore those truths. If you are strong enough, the pain will subside...you will then be able to develop the skills to learn-fight-survive-thrive-protect! All the skills we have been mind-controlled to not look at, from birth. Right now, crucial organs are being removed using sophisticated psyop-methods on our children!! Our CHILDREN, for Christ's sake!! Testicles, penises, female organs and more that are crucial for continuing humanity and that produce chemicals needed to give strength to avoid that boot, being manufactured now, individually designed to stomp on our faces, forever. Arise! Yes, scream in pain...then channel the anger that will replace the pain with a heightened, enlightened thought process that can develop solutions, even if its just monkey-wrenching with the machinery. Solutions, conjured in parts of our brains that have been suppressed for many decades, possibly longer. Remember, when you finally open your eyes, "they" are ready for the knee-jerk anger that cannot be expressed with violence. For a "contemporary" understanding of these psychos, mad-scientists, controlled-enablers and such, read (currently for free at the archive.org link below) Walter Bowart's, "Operation Mind Control" published in 1978, dedicated to those who are obedient to authority. May they follow in the path of Daniel Ellsberg, L. Fletcher Prouty, Victor Marchetti, John Marks, and George OToole, become responsible, and break free from the chains of command.

"Round-Up," a Monsanto, now Bayer, herbicidal product, 100%. I just wrote a piece on "Substack" about "Disinformation," which was something I needed to get off my chest--or out of my Head. Your catalogue (Once upon a time there were "Catalogues," especially by Sears) really covers the bases of the Mendacity Machine we pretend is a Government, with mainstream media minions megaphoning in tow. Such a large Barge! The tide might be turning around Gaza, unless the Armageddon Virus doesn't strike us all down first...

Once upon a time, you had to tell a lie 10 times before it started to be accepted as a fact. Now, if you expose a major truth, then your life is made miserable (e.g. Julian Assange) or, if it´s a simple truth (e.g. from either climate catastrophe or nuclear war we are on the brink of self-extermination) then you´re regarded as a conspiracy theorist... doG bless ameryucka

Happy Fucking Murder Incorporated Day -- Friday off for the banks, USPS, but trauma and hell on parade 24/7, 365 for decades.


US Veterans throwing their medals at NATOs front gates. Standing in solidarity with people in the Middle East.


Wimps, every military person who follows ORDER. I know who these dudes and dudettes are. My old man, 32 years in two branches of disservice, and medals galore. I have that less than honorable separation from one branch for NOT following orders, man. I went in to learn how to build their weapons as a socialist, but military is mush, man.

Ironically, I have taught at military compounds, including the NCO Academy in El Paso Texas/BIggs Field. Been around tons of military as a college teacher, journalist.

Ironically, I ended up working with homeless and drug-booze induced vets.



Shame on them for accepting medals in the first place. But at least they are seeking some redemption.

Reality: BEAR WITNESS and rail and fight and scream and do something against the system, the 20 Percent, those in USA who control 92 of "wealth," No, we are the 99, but we are the Eighty Percent. Billionaires and CEOs and multimillionaires need the Eichmann's, so the One Percent only thrives with their generals in the Five Percent and their Dream Hoarders in the 15 Percent.

We are useless eaters, breeders, thinkers, learners, defecators, sleepers, blinkers, doers, dreamer, man, to the 20 PERCENT. Just more fodder for their Internet of nano-biologics of THINGS.

Things, man, that's what we are. Not even Soylent Green, man!

Ahh, Cindy, take a look at this: Caitlin Johnstone banned me. You know, Substack, whereupon I can't comment anymore.


David ROvics did the same thing.

Hoping your skin is thicker than the censors out there, the oh so "left" people who just go on and on and on with their godammned angst.



It's not skin of my teeth, but still, imagine that: And, I will definitely stop reading her gig-so sad comments. Always surprised, Caitlin is, about the Main Scum Media and their depiction of the world, of the wars, of our lives, the 80 Percent.

Adios, and boy, I recall interview Bush, when he was guv, when I asked him about immigration and colonias and other issues, and he just came back with a fucking shit answer and snide remarks. The other journalists I was with just kind of gave me a look of -- "How dare you ask so bluntly this guy's take, and then follow up with his shit answer with more questions." I wouldn't let it go, and Bush just laughed an talked about getting some enchilladas in El Paso, where I was reporting.


Yeah, cancel culture way before the cool trend! Fucking 1990s. Now, 2023? Caitlin Johnstone has had it with me. Freaks.

It was something Bush, then governor of Texas, said to a reporter during his first presidential campaign. The reporter in question was Tucker Carlson—hardly a hostile figure—and Carlson reported it in Talk magazine in 1999. It was about Karla Faye Tucker, a convicted murderer whose execution Bush, as governor, had refused to stay. Here is what Carlson wrote (as quoted in National Review, another source hardly known to be hostile toward Republicans):

In the week before [Karla Faye Tucker’s] execution, Bush says, Bianca Jagger and a number of other protesters came to Austin to demand clemency for Tucker. “Did you meet with any of them?” I ask. Bush whips around and stares at me. “No, I didn’t meet with any of them,” he snaps, as though I’ve just asked the dumbest, most offensive question ever posed. “I didn’t meet with Larry King either when he came down for it. I watched his interview with [Tucker], though. He asked her real difficult questions, like ‘What would you say to Governor Bush?’ ” “What was her answer?” I wonder. “Please,” Bush whimpers, his lips pursed in mock desperation, “don’t kill me.”
