Arlington Road

1999 Film Portending Today’s “Conspiracy-Fueled Climate”

Editor’s Note: Arlington Road was surely an uncommon Hollywood production in that it addressed “conspiratorial” subject matter, including false flag terror, blackmail by government agencies, the Patriot movement, and pedophilia, all in a not-so-thinly-veiled fashion. The film was developed in the shadow of Ruby Ridge, the Waco massacre, and the Murrah federal building bombing while also eerily anticipating the events of September 11, 2001 and the subsequent culture of paranoia and conspiracy the government response to those events helped shape. Arlington Road was also an artifact examined in James Tracy’s infamous Culture of Conspiracy class, which he taught as a tenured faculty member at Florida Atlantic University prior to being terminated for not reporting his protected speech to school officials posted on this personal blog .

Calling Arlington Road an unsung summer blockbuster admittedly stretches that category’s definition. A political thriller in the Parallax View mold, the film did get a wide release (in July 1999), but it was made for a relatively low budget and boasted decidedly mid-level stars: Jeff Bridges, Tim Robbins, Joan Cusack, and Hope Davis.

Nobody likely expected a box-office bonanza. Still, it underperformed even by that metric, finishing sixth on its opening weekend (even though the only other studio film to bow that week was American Pie), and received largely mixed reviews. In today’s conspiracy-fueled climate, the commercial and critical fate of a movie as deftly engineered and deeply cynical as this one might well be very different.

Bridges plays Michael Faraday, a history professor still mourning his late wife, who’d worked for the FBI and been killed in a Waco-style standoff. Seeking a playmate for his young son, Faraday is happy to meet new neighbors Oliver and Cheryl Lang (Robbins and Cusack), as they have a boy around the same age.

Soon, however, Faraday begins to suspect that this seemingly ordinary, exceedingly friendly couple is harboring some sort of dark secret. Some of the personal information they impart doesn’t check out, and as Faraday starts snooping around and keeping tabs, he discovers more and more discrepancies and inexplicable behavior. Eventually, he concludes that the Langs are homegrown terrorists plotting an attack.

Broward Sheriff’s Cartoon-Animation of Parkland Shooting

YouTube Viewers Skeptical

“Where were the police? Oh yeah, that’s right”

A “chilling animation” produced by the Broward Sheriff’s Office was presented at an April 2018 meeting of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission.

The video, which resembles a 1970s era video game, claims to “recreate shooter Nikolas Cruz’s actions inside the school on February 14, 2018.”

The main problem with the attempt to portray the alleged mass shooting’s details in this way is that the Parkland High School is a state-of-the-art facility located in an affluent community. Therefore, the building was equipped with closed-circuit television monitoring wherein a verifiable record of the actual event is readily available.

If the authorities seek to allay concern and skepticism toward the shooting the entirety of that footage should be first subjected to independent forensic verification, then released to the public.

A sample of the 2,100 remarks from the YouTube video’s comments section suggests the heightened public skepticism such events are met with today. Local law enforcement and their federal handlers only exacerbate this skepticism with such poorly-conceived public relations stunts. (Click image to enlarge.)

MemoryHoleBlog Video Series

The following is an overview of current developments in the Florida District Court lawsuit brought by one of the most prolific Sandy Hook victims’ families against former school safety expert Wolfgang Halbig.

Infowars and the Lawsuits: A Pincer Movement on Free Speech? (Video)

In this debut of the MemoryHoleBlog’s news analysis and commentary video series we examine the lawsuits filed against Alex Jones and Infowars’ parent company on April 16, 2018.

In 2017 when Jones was sued by James Alefantis over “Pizzagate” the broadcaster settled out of court and agreed to never use the term again, thus leading the way in chilling investigation and commentary on the scandal. Will the public witness the same tactic used in responding to suits filed by Sandy Hook massacre victims’ families?

“The US Government Killed Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.”

By James F. Tracy

Today marks the fiftieth anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the most significant Black man in United States history. Western news media are quick to hollowly mourn his death. These are the same mainstream voices that, in concert with the Lyndon B. Johnson administration, almost uniformly condemned King when he came out against America’s criminal war in Southeast Asia during his April 4, 1967 Riverside Church speech. Abundant evidence now suggests that one year later the US government orchestrated his assassination. Unsurprisingly, major media continue to cling to the debunked government conspiracy theory that James Early Ray was the sole assassin of Dr. King. As is often the case, the truth is far deeper than such make-believe journalism is willing to fathom.

Along these lines, the United States is especially fond of dedicating monuments, boulevards, even airports to the elected leaders and public officials its lettered agencies have murdered. Dr. Pepper’s research and legal efforts that resulted in the 1999 King v. Jowers verdict elaborated on in the video below left no doubt that the US government was directly involved in the April 4, 1968 assassination of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. As Coretta Scott King remarked, “The jury was clearly convinced by the extensive evidence that was presented during the trial that … the conspiracy of the Mafia, local, state and federal government agencies, were deeply involved in the assassination of my husband.”

YouTube HQ: Police confirm there’s an active shooter at company campus

UK Independent

There is an active shooter at YouTube headquarters at the California-based company located around 11 miles south of San Francisco, according to police.

The San Mateo County Sheriff and local San Bruno Police are working together to resolve the situation. Product manager Vadim Lavrusik tweeted that he “heard shots and saw people running while at my desk” but he and some colleagues have been evacuated and are safe at this time.

The police have advised the public to stay out of the area of the offices. Footage posted via Snapchat close to the campus in San Mateo shows some people walking down the street with their hands above their heads and police surrounding the building while wearing tactical gear.

The San Bruno City Manager’s office told BuzzFeed News that the city received several emergency calls from inside the building and the surrounding area regarding gunshots. Police are currently searching individuals who have been evacuated before allowing them to leave the scene to prevent the shooter from blending in with escaping crowds.

Police have released very little information, however, unconfirmed reports from local media said that the shooter is female, and two people are injured.

Via TruePundit

This is literally one of those videos with viral potential … if it can stay online long enough before it is banned by FBI and friends, including the Secret Service.

It’s a race against the clock, so to speak.

If the video, which drops bombs on the Florida school shooting. goes viral it will certainly face doom on YouTube.

Trump Dresses Down Media Moguls, Anchors

“I’m in a room full of liars.”

The media figures arrived at Trump Tower on Monday afternoon for off-the-record meetings with the president-elect, who spent much of his campaign bashing the “dishonest” media — including deriding CNN as the “Clinton News Network” and repeatedly attacking the “failing” New York Times via Twitter.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgRwfIzFcdM

According to a transition pool report, the media personalities are as follows: NBC News President Deborah Turness; MSNBC President Phil Griffin; CNN President Jeff Zucker and network anchor Wolf Blitzer; Fox News Co-Presidents Bill Shine and Jack Abernethy and Executive Vice Presidents Jay Wallace and Suzanne Scott; and CBS News anchors John Dickerson and Charlie Rose.

“@realDonaldTrump more gracious and magnanimous than I would be,” Fox News host and Trump ally Sean Hannity tweeted. “Meeting with network execs that tried hard to defeat him @CNN @NBCNews.”
