Chronicle of Higher Ed: “Tenured Truther Shown the Door”

“Academic Freedom Has Limits. Where They Are Isn’t Always Clear.”

Kevin Carey
Chronicle of Higher Education

[Editor’s Note: One would think the Chronicle of Higher Education might get its facts right, particularly given its readership. However, author Kevin Carey, “director of the education-policy program at New America,” repeats the corporate media falsehood that this author sent Lenny and Veronique Pozner a certified letter out-of-the-blue “demand[ing] proof that their son had ever been alive.” In fact, the letter was in response to Lenny Pozner’s harassive March 22, 2015 copyright infringement claim filed against Memory Hole Blog, where I requested evidence that Pozner was the rightful owner of the image in question–indeed, the same image that emerged following a school massacre in Peshawar Pakistan in December 2014 purporting to be one of the decedents! This request was also made following Pozner’s many dubious copyright claims against alternative media outlets that I contended amount to a muzzle on First Amendment-protected free speech–the same constitutional safeguard showboated by so many major media outlets, including the Chronicle.

Subsequent evidence has emerged suggesting that Pozner has led an online harassment and stalking campaign against citizens and alternative media who’ve attempted to publicly question and research the Sandy Hook School massacre. Mainstream media outlets have turned a blind eye to this pattern of likely criminal activity. -JFT]

The New York Times Publishes Sandy Hook Disinformation and Propaganda

Prof. Jim Fetzer
jamesfetzer.blogspot.com

In an astonishing example of the duplicity of the American media, The New York Times–which is our nation’s newspaper of record–which means that it records the “official history” of the United States–has presented a transparent demonstration of its duplicity and mendacity by publishing an article about the firing of Florida Atlantic University professor James Tracy, which excludes what he himself has said about his case and why nytimesthe firing was legally unjustifiable and morally wrong.

The article, “Florida Professor Who Cast Doubt on Mass Shootings is Fired“, The New York Times (6 January 2016) by Lizette Alvarez, which builds the case for Tracy having harassed the Pozners–when the truth was precisely the opposite–was so sloppily done that the paper has had to publish a clarification (in fine print at the end) for reporting that Lenny Pozner had been fired rather than James Tracy. The author embeds a link to the Sandy Hook Hoax Facebook page, where Tracy lays why his actions have been directed at protecting the public interest, which The Times ignores:

Academic freedom is a fundamental principle, which has been blatantly violated by Florida Atlantic University.

Sofia Smallstorm Maps the Corporatized You

cooper_smallstormIncisive sociopolitical researcher Sofia Smallstorm joins the program to discuss her recent work examining the stealth privatization of individuals, local and regional governments, and the United States itself. She argues that this legal corporatization that has ensued in varying degrees since the late 1800s is a major factor in better understanding recent “mass shooting” drills, some of which are being presented to the public as actual events. In other words, once local municipalities and law enforcement agencies become dependent on federal grants, they are compelled to partake in such exercises to justify continued funding.

An Open Letter to Republican Presidential Candidates on the Proposed So-Called Flat Tax

Tax Code Researcher Argues Direct Taxation is Unconstitutional

Submitted by C. Fenner Goldsborough

The so-called FLAT TAX that has been proposed by several of the current, Republican presidential candidates is one of two different types. The first and most frequently proposed type is a so-called “income”, meaning, in the generic or ordinary sense, a “receipts” tax on virtually all monies earned by our citizens. These proponents would authorize our government to directly and UNCONSTITUTIONALLY (in violation of Article 1, Section 2, Clause 3 and Article 1, Section 9, Clause 4) tax all wages, salaries irsand other earnings of all working Americans. Proposed rates would vary between 15 and 25% of what its proponents incorrectly refer to as “income”, despite the fact that both our Constitution and the statutory law in the I.R. Code forbid any such direct tax on the wages, salaries or other earnings of our sovereign state citizens.

Congress Declares “Martial Law”

Emergency Spending Bills Signal Transition to Banana Republic

debtSGT Report.com

Twice in September Congress implemented ‘Martial Law’ as a way of railroading unconstitutional spending bills to keep the bankrupt US government from collapsing. The use of martial law fast-tracks spending bills by BYPASSING typical procedures – it’s a stop gap measure of overt tyranny from the government of a nation which at this point is best defined as a ‘Banana Republic’.
