Unspeakable Memories: The Day John Kennedy Died

Edward Curtin

(November 22, 2019)

There is a vast literature on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, who died on a November 22nd Friday like this in 1963.  I have contributed my small share to such writing in an effort to tell the truth, honor him, and emphasize its profound importance in understanding the history of the last fifty-six years, but more importantly, what is happening in the U.S.A. today. In other words, to understand it in its most gut-wrenching reality: that the American national security state will obliterate any president that dares to buck its imperial war-making machine. It is a lesson not lost on all presidents since Kennedy.

Unless one is a government disinformation agent or is unaware of the enormous documentary evidence, one knows that it was the CIA that carried out JFK’s murder. Confirmation of this fact keeps arriving in easily accessible forms for anyone interested in the truth.  A case in point is James DiEugenio’s recent posting at his website, KennedysandKing, of James Wilcott’s affidavit and interrogation by the House Select Committee on Assassinations, declassified by the Assassinations Record Review Board in 1998.  In that document, Wilcott, who worked in the finance department for the CIA and was not questioned by the Warren Commission, discusses how he unwittingly paid Lee Harvey Oswald, the government’s alleged assassin, through a cryptonym and how it was widely known and celebrated at his CIA station in Tokyo that the CIA killed Kennedy and Oswald worked for the Agency, although he did not shoot JFK.  I highly recommend reading the document.

I do not here want to go into any further analysis or debate about the case.  I think the evidence is overwhelming that the President was murdered by the national security state. Why he was murdered, and the implications for today, are what concern me. And how and why we remember and forget public events whose consequences become unbearable to contemplate, and the fatal repercussions of that refusal.  In what I consider the best book ever written on the subject, JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters (2009), James W. Douglass explains this in detail, including the James Wilcott story.

South Park Targets Gender-Demarcated Sports and Transgender Athletes

The most recent episode of Comedy Central’s South Park focuses on how transsexual athletes are “breaking” multiple records in various organized sports demarcated by gender.

This week’s show features a pro-wrestler Randy Savage-like antagonist who demolishes “her” competitors at the “Strong Woman” meet, to the tune of the “Strong Woman” theme song, which sounds remarkably similar to Blue Oyster Cult’s 1977 monster homage, “Godzilla.”

As expected, the episode has earned the ire of major media and pro-transsexual commentators, who point to South Park creators’ “transphobia.” This dynamic is anticipated in the show’s featured “PC babies”, the offspring of South Park’s excessively PC male (he/him) school principal and his body building female (she/her) spouse.

Sophia Narwitz, a male at birth who now identifies as a woman, writes at RT that the phenomenon has reached limits worthy of lampooning.

Trans athletes like Rachel Mckkinnon are destroying cycling records. Mary Gregory broke four women’s powerlifting records in a single day. Two transgender students won top prize at a girl’s state championship track event. And there’s many more similar stories. But one cannot question or criticize this new phenomena as the media and far left reactionaries pile on with hate and accusations of bigotry. 

Their mindset is muddying the water of a topic that needs debate. LGBT activists can argue that trans athletes don’t have an edge, but they do. I myself am biologically male. Hormones may have refined my features, softened my skin, and given me boobs. Some muscle mass may have even been redistributed or lessened, but much of it remains the same, as does my unchanging skeletal structure. If I was to train and then compete in sports, I would have an edge. 

The episode also pokes fun at how federal legislation is arrived at, and has a “happy” resolution where South Park school girls who through a newly-created law establish a gender-specific gaming club where they give the incredibly “successful” trans athlete a true run for “her” money.

Is the show “funny”? That arguably depends on whether one considers transgenders a marginalized group. Given the transgender movement’s now considerable influence on public policy and much of the corporate sector, one may certainly contend that South Park’s creators return full circle to what made the cartoon a household name–thoughtful (albeit often crude) criticism of mainstream institutions and culture.

A New Kind of Tyranny: The Global State’s War on Those Who Speak Truth to Power

John Whitehead

(November 5, 2019)

“What happens to Julian Assange and to Chelsea Manning is meant to intimidate us, to frighten us into silence. By defending Julian Assange, we defend our most sacred rights. Speak up now or wake up one morning to the silence of a new kind of tyranny. The choice is ours.”—John Pilger, investigative journalist

All of us are in danger.

In an age of prosecutions for thought crimes, pre-crime deterrence programs, and government agencies that operate like organized crime syndicates, there is a new kind of tyranny being imposed on those who dare to expose the crimes of the Deep State, whose reach has gone global.

The Deep State has embarked on a ruthless, take-no-prisoners, all-out assault on truth-tellers.

Activists, journalists and whistleblowers alike are being terrorized, traumatized, tortured and subjected to the fear-inducing, mind-altering, soul-destroying, smash-your-face-in tactics employed by the superpowers-that-be.

Take Julian Assange, for example.

Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks—a website that published secret information, news leaks, and classified media from anonymous sources—was arrested on April 11, 2019, on charges of helping U.S. Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning access and leak more than 700,000 classified military documents that portray the U.S. government and its military as reckless, irresponsible and responsible for thousands of civilian deaths.

Included among the leaked Manning material were the Collateral Murder video (April 2010), the Afghanistan war logs (July 2010), the Iraq war logs (October 2010), a quarter of a million diplomatic cables (November 2010), and the Guantánamo files (April 2011).

The Collateral Murder leak included gunsight video footage from two U.S. AH-64 Apache helicoptersengaged in a series of air-to-ground attacks while air crew laughed at some of the casualties. Among the casualties were two Reuters correspondents who were gunned down after their cameras were mistaken for weapons and a driver who stopped to help one of the journalists. The driver’s two children, who happened to be in the van at the time it was fired upon by U.S. forces, suffered serious injuries.

This is morally wrong.

It shouldn’t matter which nation is responsible for these atrocities: there is no defense for such evil perpetrated in the name of profit margins and war profiteering.

In true Orwellian fashion, however, the government would have us believe that it is Assange and Manning who are the real criminals for daring to expose the war machine’s seedy underbelly.

The Ukrainegate ‘WhistleBlower’ Probably Isn’t

It’s an insult to real whistleblowers to use the term with the Ukrainegate protagonist

Matt Taibbi
Rolling Stone

(October 6, 2019)

Start with the initial headline, in the story the Washington Post “broke” on September 18th:

TRUMP’S COMMUNICATIONS WITH FOREIGN LEADER ARE PART OF WHISTLEBLOWER COMPLAINT THAT SPURRED STANDOFF BETWEEN SPY CHIEF AND CONGRESS, FORMER OFFICIALS SAY

The unnamed person at the center of this story sure didn’t sound like a whistleblower. Our intelligence community wouldn’t wipe its ass with a real whistleblower.

Americans who’ve blown the whistle over serious offenses by the federal government either spend the rest of their lives overseas, like Edward Snowden, end up in jail, like Chelsea Manning, get arrested and ruined financially, like former NSA official Thomas Drake, have their homes raided by FBI like disabled NSA vet William Binney, or get charged with espionage like ex-CIA exposer-of-torture John Kiriakou. It’s an insult to all of these people, and the suffering they’ve weathered, to frame the ballcarrier in the Beltway’s latest partisan power contest as a whistleblower.

Terror in the Classroom (VIdeo)

Memory Hole Blog Report

The militarization of law enforcement, sensationalized mass shooting events, and a creeping police state have merged in the now common “active shooter drills” that transpire in various public places, including schools.

Yet recent research suggests how such exercises do little in the way of preparing for mass casualty events, and instead needlessly traumatize children, in the process making an entire generation more acquiescent to state authority and control over their everyday lives.
