Media Fakery

In light of recent events, I thought I'd reprise my 2005 radio commentary, Media Fakery. If you haven't seen the movie Wag the Dog I highly recommend it. It really is that bad, folks.

In the 1997 movie "Wag the Dog" the president and his spin doctor hired a Hollywood producer to fabricate a war to cover up a scandal in the White House. I remember them filming a scene where a war-torn Albanian woman ducks behind a building clutching a kitten. In reality, the woman was a cheap actress ducking behind a blue screen clutching a bag of potato chips. Sometimes a movie can be more truthful than the nightly news.

If you want a good laugh, check out this story from Reuters: Was 'Abducted' U.S. Soldier a Toy? A monitored web site in Dubai, which incidently has been the main channel of communication in recent months for Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, recently posted a poor quality photo of a purportedly kidnapped US soldier threatened by an unseen assailant with an assault rifle. "Our mujahideen ... have managed to capture the American soldier John Adam after killing a number of his colleagues," said the Mujahideen Squadrons in the undated statement on the Web site. Actually, "John Adam" appears to be a GI-Joe type action figure made by Dragon Models USA. Assault weapon included.

I could waste a lot of time explaining all the reasons I think anything having to do with al-Zarqawi in the past few months, including the beheading of Nick Berg, is a hoax, but there's been a lot of competent researchers doing that kind of work for me. Check it out for yourself! In March 2004, the leadership of Allahu Akbar Mujahedeen claimed al-Zarqawi had been killed by American bombing. If you think about it, it's actually neoconservative policy makers that have an interest in keeping his legend alive.

In a world of "Saving Private Jessica" and yellowcake uranium, what's there to believe anymore? This morning on my way to the studio I passed a newsstand declaring "Bush: Save Social Security." What??? An accurate headline would say "Bush Inc.: Loot Social Security."

American Heritage® Dictionary defines a shill as "One who poses as a satisfied customer or an enthusiastic gambler to dupe bystanders into participating in a swindle." I wonder if one could apply this definition to Jeff Gannon, a guy with virtually no journalistic background who enjoys unlimited White House press passes and gets called on repeatedly by Bush so he can ask him softball questions and attack Democratic Senate leaders for being "divorced from reality."

I guess you could call columnist Armstrong Williams a shill. He was secretly paid nearly a quarter million by the Education Department to promote its policy. And what would you call Bush's practice of sending out video press releases disguised as "news stories" by fake journalists?

Maybe Shakespeare was right. Maybe "All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players." But if you keep your eyes peeled, you might be able to catch a fleeting glimpse of that bag of potato chips.

alternative media is full of 'aaron swartz was murdered', but how do we know he is dead?

MSM news is media fakery created Hollywood style. The same criminal liars reign in both areas--powerful and wealthy Jews. It would not be unbelievable that the faces and voices in the news are actually from those same Jewish families. This had been the main thrust of the now declared nutty wacko, Ed Chiarini who has the wellaware1 site. His postings have become so outlandish that any legitimate info he may have had has become nullified. Why, I don't know, but now those hounded Jews he was accusing can laugh, because Chiarini is totally discredited.

There are still family photos of the accused Jewish Greenberg clan that can be viewed online. That is until they too are removed. There are familiar faces among them, faces that can be associated with media news events.

Still there January 25,2013:

I've been to the wellaware1 site to investigate previous stories and I don't buy it either. But I do want to caution people who comment on my site ... I don't like to post things that don't make a distinction between the evil Zionist *political* agenda and an ethnic religious group called "the Jews." I don't believe all Jews are bad though they make up the vast majority of Zionists. I've been taking a lot of flak lately from one of the web sites I like to post at, they think I'm racist or something, which just isn't true. I think the Zionists are hateful because of their politics, not their race.

American Jews are a political block, using their votes, money, and influence on behalf of Israel. They do not have to be Zionists to co-operate with the Zionist agenda. The loyalty to Israel of most of them is a detriment to America, as we are experiencing. Their political action removed Cynthia McKinney from Congress. They vote as they are led by Zionist leaders. Jewish American young people go to Israel to join the IDF with their families'/rabbis' blessings to persecute Palestinians and violently contain Gaza. Zionists are hateful, but so are the teachings of the Talmud which ordinary Jews are taught to live by--religious hatred. Jews who repudiate their ethnic religious teachings are cut off from their own kind. Fear of losing that protective bond keeps them submitted to the race, good or bad. They are fearful of being abused victims, so they hang tight together for protection. The criminal Zionist powers cause the reasons for Jews' fear; then become their supposed saviors. Jews only trust Jews no matter who they are, or what they do. Since this is just my opinion, could you provide a description of what you think comprises good Jews and what determines their basic ethics and loyalty in America?

Here's an example of those I think are good Jews:

It's not a matter of "buying it" but a matter of seeing, studying the mountains of evidence. One faked image and the entire edifice collapses.
