You've Probably Never Heard Of Us
JFK was long before I was even born and I was never particularly interested in the story. In fact, I never even saw the Oliver Stone movie.
But after spending three and a half hours watching “JFK to 911 Everything Is A Rich Man’s Trick” the main question I am left wondering is why so much of the eye witness testimony I’ve simply never heard. There are at least two films of the assassination I’ve never even heard of – I thought there was just the one Zapruder film. These various pictures of the scenes, the many interviews given by various people years later – I never even knew they existed.
But as someone who – quite by accident and happenstance – was somewhat of a witness to the events of September 11, 2001, I can understand the pattern perfectly well.
Hell, I started this blog so I could talk about 911 and what do you know, three years later I’m living in a foreign country after having fled the US after a series of utterly improbable events.
Laughably, I used to consider myself a “ladies man” while now, looking back, I just realize how utterly easy it was to distract and entrap me by sending around a few pretty girls who were, er, “loose,” as it were.
Now, this film is certainly politically biased – the atrocities of the Russian Communists are glossed over while the atrocities of the German National Socialists are exaggerated, but regardless of the political bias, it’s simply the facts and testimony that are somewhat astounding.
I especially like the “limited hangout” film “The Men Who Killed Kennedy” which was then “banned” from the History Channel – while made available on youtube.com (owned by NSA partner Google.com.) This reminds me so much of Judith Woods and her “energy beams brought down the WTC” “theory” and the entire VeteransToday/VeteransNewsNow websites, who promoted ludicrous nonsense about 9/11 to distract from the real “truthers” like AE911Truth.
It’s a very effective tactic.
As for the “crisis actors” stuff – I can say this. I had an opportunity to be the star witness on the front page of a major US newspaper on September 12, 2001 – and I did not take it. I never even called the reporter back (who I knew personally.) I had no interest in being a “media star.” I don’t know what to say about the people who did.
I DID, however, a year later, “dip my toe” into the idea of saying some things to “debunk” some of the things being said that I knew were lies – but I did not, because, quite frankly, I was somewhat scared to do so, believing – perfectly justified I think, that I would simply be attacked.
I would like to point out that there was a RELENTLESS campaign, between 2001 to 2005, of slander against the survivors and family members of the victims of the 911 attacks that did, in fact, try to “set the record straight.” Such media luminaries as Bill O’Reilly of FOX News, Glenn Beck of ClearChannel Radio, and various “left wing progressives” like Amy Goodman of Pacifica Radio, Jonathan “Stewart” Liebowitz of Viacom, and Noam Chomsky that took every opportunity to slander, attack, villify, and demonize the survivors and victim’s family members of 911 that did “speak out” against the “official narrative.” More than one were personally threatened.
I was personally threatened. So, ask yourself, 15 years later – what would you do? Be a hero? What good would it do? Most Americans didn’t want to hear about any “conspiracy theories.” Hell, that Mexican guy who had saved countless people in the WTC by unlocking all the doors – George W. Bush himself gave him the Medal of Freedom – he was ruthlessly slandered as a “liar” for saying that bombs were going off in the basement even BEFORE the plane hit.
But perhaps Chicago itself might be a good place to pause and reflect on a word of warning to the citizens of the United States before they start thinking about the next American revolution. We should always remember that Al Capone was always seen as a hero by the ordinary working people of his own time because he always gave them what they wanted: booze, sex, gambling and drugs. Some Americans have even been candid enough to admit this:
Then, there are the “two-way mirrors in a brothel.”
I realized a while back I could never run for office – not that I ever had any desire to do so.
So think about it. You’re some 23 year old, on your way up. Some pretty girl – she says she’s 18 – comes around. What if she isn’t? Now you’re a felon – who knows maybe even on camera?
Even if you wreck me
Even if you waste the youth I’ve got
Baby even if the cops come calling
I’ll never talk
