Is Lt. Col. Vindman CIA?

David Martin
Heresy Central

(November 29, 2019)

The title question would seem to be just about the most obvious one that a person could raise, considering Alexander Vindman’s background, his associations, and his most recent behavior. The fact that hardly anyone seems to be making it is just one more reason, I believe, that he very likely is working for the CIA and has been throughout his military career. Actually, very much to his credit, Rush Limbaugh has observed that Vindman appears to be employed by people other than those in his chain of command. He just stops short of speculating as to who, exactly, that might be, like, say, the CIA.

We’re talking about the Jewish Ukrainian American military officer in the middle of the ginned-up Adam Schiff-Nancy Pelosi-MSM impeachment inquiry. From all indications, he is the man who shared his supposed concerns about President Donald Trump’s July 25, 2019, telephone conversation with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky with the “whistleblower.” The latter person has been widely identified as the Yalie, CIA analyst, and Democratic Party partisan, 33-year-old Eric Ciaramella. On its face, Vindman would appear to be acting in an insubordinate fashion toward the commander-in-chief of the United States Armed Forces, of which he is a part. At the same time, if we have learned nothing more from the entire Russiagate fiasco, it is that the U.S. intelligence community, abetted by the Operation Mockingbird press, has been in a state of almost open revolt against Donald Trump for quite some time now. What could explain the man’s behavior better than that he is a part of that crowd?

Taken at face value, Vindman’s actions would appear to be an absolute career killer. What incredible effrontery for a United States military officer to sneak around behind the back of the United States President, providing what should be considered classified information to said President’s obvious political enemy, to be leaked to the enemy press and the enemy Congress to put the President in the worst possible light! Even worse, the bad-light-shining is accomplished by mischaracterizing the core information being leaked. Yet, Vindman, this obvious careerist-to-the-core even followed up with a willing performance before the President’s chief Congressional antagonist, Adam Schiff, the Democratic chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.

Unspeakable Memories: The Day John Kennedy Died

Edward Curtin
LewRockewell.com

(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.

Spooks Turned Spox: US Media Now Filled With Former Intelligence Agents

Zerohedge
(October 7, 2019)

After years in the shadows overseeing espionage, kill programs, warrantless wiretapping, entrapment, psyops and other covert operations, national security establishment retirees are are turning to a new line of work where they can carry out their imperial duties.

That is, propagandizing the public on cable news. Reborn as cable news pundits, these people are cashing in. So many years working in the dark, only to emerge in the studio lights of the same networks that rail all day everyday against state TV from countries that America hates.

I’m talking about people like…

Below is but a partial list of prominent former spooks turned mainstream media pundits and analysts, to say nothing of the even greater numbers of retired generals the network continuously rely on.

Former CIA Director John Brennan who is now an NBC News senior national security and intelligence analyst.

Fran Townsend, former homeland security advisor to George W. Bush. She’s now a CBS News senior national security analyst.

But CNN takes the cake — it’s the biggest spook show of all.

Jim Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence, now a CNN national security analyst.

Retired General Michael Hayden, former director of the CIA and the NSA, now a CNN national security analyst.

Thomas Merton: Enemy of the ‘Warfare State’ (video)

MHB Report

Recent research on the 50th anniversary of world renowned Catholic mystic, author, and antiwar activist Thomas Merton’s untimely death suggests that it may well be categorized alongside the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy, Senator Robert F. Kennedy, and Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. *

Additional information and research on the suspicious death of Fr. Thomas Merton are available at

http://www.themartyrdomofthomasmerton.com/

*The video report notes that no autopsy was conducted on Merton’s body because of counsel by the US Embassy in Thailand. To be clear, this was according to a single claim made by a Merton colleague. The records and testimony surrounding the death are profuse and often at odds. They suggest, however, that even some church members and those in the company of Merton at the time were potentially complicit in a coverup.

RFK Was Assassinated By Thane EUgene Cesar, Declares RFK Jr

RFK, Jr shared a lengthy Instagram post implicating Thane Eugene Cesar in the death of his father

[This post replaced an earlier UK Daily Mail article excerpt on this story with Irish Central’s below. -Ed.]

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr says there is “compelling evidence” that Thane Eugene Cesar, and not Sirhan Sirhan, killed his father Robert F. Kennedy in 1968.

Just hours after Cesar died in the Philippines on September 12, RFK, Jr shared an Instagram post with a lengthy caption that began: “Thane Eugene Cesar died today in the Philippines. Compelling evidence suggests that Cesar murdered my father.”

On June 5, 1968, as Senator Robert F. Kennedy was in the midst of his presidential campaign, he had just concluded a speech responding to his primary win in California when he was fatally shot at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles.

RFK, Jr was 14 years old at the time.

24-year-old Sirhan Sirhan was promptly arrested and charged in the politician’s death. He was handed the death penalty, which was later switched to life in prison after California abolished capital punishment.

JFK, Mass Media, and the Origins of ‘Conspiracy Theory’

Prefatory Note on Censorship in Academe

This study was written in 2013-14 as part of my academic research as Associate Professor of Media Studies at Florida Atlantic University. I have had numerous papers addressing news coverage of historical events published in academic journals over the past two decades. However, this was the first attempt to offer a scholarly treatment of a research object related to a conspiracy–how the news media “framed” New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison’s JFK assassination inquiry.

When I presented the paper at the Association For Education in Journalism and Mass Communication Montreal Conference in 2014 the panel respondent congratulated me on what he deemed to be a very well-researched and written manuscript. He further remarked that it was at most a draft or two away from submission for editorial review at a scholarly journal. I was also confident the study would eventually achieve publication. 

The paper was subsequently rejected by five journals out-of-hand. The editors refused to even send the paper out for review, which never occurred to me before. Notably, each editor provided a different reason for not wanting to give it further consideration. What is more, three of the venues had published my work in previous years. The paper nevertheless offers a timely contribution to understanding the historical origins of the term “conspiracy theory” and its development from perhaps the most momentous event in 20th century American politics.

This helped me to further realize how despite celebrated notions of unbridled inquiry and academic freedom, certain subjects so historically central to the nation’s history in fact remain taboo among academics–those entrusted by society to research such matters–vis-á-vis their counterparts in professional journalism, with both camps still proceeding in tacit agreement to police the boundaries of permissible discourse and thought. -JFT


Introduction

“It appears that certain elements of the mass media have an active interest in preventing this case from ever coming to trial at all and find it necessary to employ against me every smear device in the book.” –Jim Garrison (Playboy 1967)

The news media’s failure to interrogate and question the “the lone assassin” theory by the 1964 Presidents Commission on the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy, otherwise known as the Warren Commission, should be recognized as one of the greatest episodes of journalistic misconduct in US history. The mass media have played a pivotal role in the coverup of the Kennedy (JFK) assassination that they unabashedly practice to this day. New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison’s investigation of the November 22, 1963 event was the first substantial challenge to the official narrative. The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) countered Garrison’s efforts by calling upon its media assets to directly attack, defame, even sabotage the inquiry.

From this episode the CIA developed one of its most potent psychological weapons against political dissent: the “conspiracy theory” label. Over its 50-year lifespan the label has time and again demonstrated its effectiveness in policing the public sphere by calling into question the credibility and even the sanity of journalists, academics, or any other public figure that dares question authorized myths for the masses.
