As the documented remarks of numerous established American journalists suggest, throughout the Cold War the news media’s relationships with the CIA were frequently often symbiotic in nature, if not friendly and intimate. For instance, famous Washington Post reporter Walter Pincus notes that in 1960 he was “offered a full-time overseas job with the CIA” while serving as “Washington correspondent for three North Carolina newspapers. I turned down the job,” he continues, “but that year did take two trips overseas to international youth conferences. The CIA arranged and paid the expenses for both trips. In 1967, I wrote of this CIA association in the Washington Post.”
Along these lines one-time Chicago Sun-Times Associate Editor Stuart H. Loory warmly recalls how “[d]uring the ten years of covering foreign relations and national security affairs I have traded information with CIA people and I have eaten at the excellent table in the CIA director’s private dining room (after taking a drink from a black-coated waiter in the director’s private sitting room). Has such access hurt or helped the pursuit of information? Naturally, I think it has helped. Not all of my colleagues agree.”

Searching for memory hole blog on google… it’s difficult to find. You are buried in the results. I’m sure that’s no accident. As we inch closer to World War 3 over Syria and pursuing the greater Israel project, everything else seems to matter less to me. So few people are awake to what’s happening. Trump is under siege from the left and it will never end. No one believes that Syria gas attacked their own people. It was obviously done by Israel or on behalf of Israel. But Trump’s last tweet indicates he is going all in on destroying what’s left of Syria. I was born in 1961 and we were at war then. We have been fighting undeclared wars my entire life. Once you understand who is really running this Earth, a clique of child raping Satanists, everything makes a lot more sense. The destruction of secular moderate regimes makes way for despotic religious zealots to take over. That’s what they want in Syria. When I heard John Bolton was back as National Security Advisor, I knew we were headed for more wanton destruction and death of innocents. There is a separate race of soulesss beings among us. They have had their empathy genetically removed. That’s how they can push the kill button without hesitation. If you have not viewed the Gotthard Base Tunnel opening ceremony in Switzerland, I urge you to do so. It removes all doubt about the nature of who runs the show in Europe. The ceremony cost 8 million Euros and took years of rehearsal and planning. It depicts the spawning and birth of the Anti-Christ. These freaks are conjuring Satan from the bowels of hell. And you thought Switzerland was a mostly Christian country. This ceremony was the illuminati’s coming out party. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zW5gklIKcDg
