I Expect My Apology From Washington’s Blog And Their Token Jew Shill Eric Zuesse

jew_shillI told you before that Washington’s Blog has been taken over by Jewish mis-directional influence. I speculated on why that might be, but it is true nonetheless. I explained that because I would call out the Jewish Shill, Eric “Sweetie” Zuesse for claiming the Jewish takeover of Ukraine were Nazis, giving the tired old Evil Nazi meme legs for the gullible readers who still frequent the place. I even shared further confirmation from a Ukrainian General who spoke truth about the Jews.

To this day, I still get upvotes on my comments at WB, so apparently there are at least a few wise people that haven’t given up on the Jew hijacked site, yet.

I expect my apology (yeah, I know its coming, right?) from the Jewish ownership and from the hook nosed moron, Sweetie, because everything I told them is apparently true. Jews DO run Ukraine, instigated by Jews in America (Victoria “Nudelman” Nuland), and supported by Jewish Hasbara (Eric Zuesse). Its a Jew fest from top to bottom, beginning to end.

Only a blithering idiot would believe the Nazi BS now. And only a fool would expect anyone to believe that Jews are little n nazis.

As a matter of fact, Khazaria is being formed again by the same criminals that Sweetie protects. He, nor WB can be trusted for truth, for they will not address this huge, glaring discrepancy.

Latest Foster Cover-Up Book Not Completely Worthless

Latest Foster Cover-Up Book Not Completely Worthless

by DC Dave

Purported journalist Marinka Peschmann is not exactly an experienced researcher on the 51dOgw0PmzLsubject and it shows in her thin little 2012 volume, Following Orders: The Death of Vince Foster, Clinton White House Lawyer. One would think that this 5×8 inch paperback with only 132 pages of actual text would at least be spare with any unnecessary verbiage, but in fact the opposite is the case. It’s full of passages in which she and former Clinton White House legal office aide Linda Tripp just chew the fat, speculating about one thing or another. Not until her 12th and last chapter does she come through with her really batty theory of what actually happened the day Foster died.

“His job is clearly to play right-wing shepherd and to herd his assigned flock away from the corruption that envelops both the Democrats and the Republicans as well as our ruling media elite,” I wrote in my review of Richard Poe’s Hillary’s Secret War: The Clinton Conspiracy to Muzzle Internet Journalists. It’s the same with Peschmann, except that she seems both to be on, and to aim for, an IQ level a few notches lower than Poe’s. Poe was able to get a big blurb by Ann Coulter right on his dust jacket. The best Peschmann can get is a plug from Gateway Pundit, Jim Hoft, a favorite whipping boy of the Fake Left web site, Media Matters, where Ben Dimiero suggests that Hoft might be “the dumbest man on the Internet.”

The following passage, which, short as it is, takes up half of the book’s penultimate page, tells you who the Peschmann audience is supposed to be, and it is surely not those she pretends to address:

A note to my secular, atheist, agnostic, and humanist friends and readers

Marinka1

Marinka Peschmann

We are all free to believe or to not believe in God. With or without the Bible verses, Following Orders is the same story. If you have a problem with references to God and to Christianity skip over the scriptures that open each chapter. When reporting on politicians who adhere to an ideology dedicated to Lucifer, I believe it is prudent to counter Lucifer with God. That said, I think it is fair to say we are all flawed. I also believe that a liar and a hypocrite, be it a person “of faith” or a “non-believer,” is still a liar and a hypocrite just like corruption, whether it appears on the right or the left of the political spectrum, is still corruption. (emphasis Peschmann’s)

Peschmann never explains how she developed such a cozy relationship with Tripp, the woman who brought Foster his last lunch, a cheeseburger, but one gets some idea of the degree of the coziness, as well as a feel for the reading experience that one is in for, with this early passage in the first chapter:

Linda Tripp

Linda Tripp

With Cleo, Linda’s golden retriever dog, gently asleep at her usual spot, in front of the living room couch, I faced the computer and clicked print. Page after page rolled out documenting the events of July 20, 1993—that was the day White House deputy counsel to the president of the United States, Vincent Walker Foster Jr., was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head in Fort Marcy Park in McLean, Virginia. It was the highest-ranking suicide in government since 1949, when President Truman’s secretary of defense, James Forrestal, committed suicide by throwing himself from a sixteenth floor window to his death from the Bethesda Naval Hospital.

Vince Foster & Hillary Clinton

She’s still toeing the prevailing propaganda line on Forrestal (who was no longer defense secretary at the time of his death) some eight years after this writer had blown it out of the water, and it really should not surprise one to find that she really does pretty much the same with Foster. In the Foster case it is the propaganda line of the Fake Right.

We heard it early on, coming from the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Jerry Falwell. Yes, it might have been a suicide, they agreed, but it didn’t happen like we have been told. There had to have been something about it that was terribly embarrassing to the Clintons. Hillary and Vince had a love nest, they suggested, somewhere in Northern Virginia. Perhaps Foster killed himself there, and the body was transported to the park rolled up in a carpet and dumped. It is consistent with the thrust of reporter Christopher Ruddy’s work before he defected to the Clinton camp, and that is the theory that she is marshaling support for with the following passage:

According to an independent Foster investigation conducted by Vincent Scalice, a veteran New York City Police homicide investigator, and an expert in crime scene reconstruction, identification, and forensic analysis, and Fred D. Santucci, a Forensic Photographer and Crime Scene Expert: “Carpet-type fibers of various colors which were found on almost all of Foster’s clothing was clearly indicative of the fact that his body probably was in contact with one or more carpets. This evidence raises the possibility that his body may have been in a prone position, and/or his body may have been transported while in contact with some type of carpeting.”

She leaves out one name here. Richard Saferstein, author of the popular textbook, Criminalisitics: An Introduction to Forensic Science, was also a member of the “independent investigation” team.

Actually, there was nothing really independent about it. It was all set up by Christopher Ruddy. He roped me into the “reconstruction of the crime scene” to play the role of the Vince Foster corpse because, he said, I was the right height. I protested that I was some 30 pounds heavier than Foster and therefore unsuited for the role, but Ruddy insisted. I think his purpose was simply to get me emotionally invested in the snake oil that he was selling, which I never found all that persuasive, no matter how “expert” the people might have been, because the reconstruction took place earlier in the year than when Foster died, and conditions would have been completely different. Furthermore, all that evidence of carpet fibers on Foster’s clothing came from the FBI crime lab when, contrary to what one might learn from Ruddy or Peschmann, the FBI was, itself, deeply implicated in the Foster cover-up.

Peschmann has this lone endnote (#250) at the end of her paragraph: “Vincent J. Scalice, ‘What really happened,’ access online at: http://whatreallyhappened.com/content/vince-foster-documents-reveal-judges-deliberations-death.”

Whoa! Wait a minute! How in the world did that get there? There’s nothing about Scalice et al. in the referenced article. What’s there is the very illuminating work of Foster researcher Hugh Turley, which appears on this writer’s web site. Here we reprint it in its entirety:

Documents Reveal Judges’ Deliberations on a Death

By Hugh Turley

Vincent Foster, former president Bill Clinton’s deputy White House counsel, died nearly 18 years ago, and his death was ruled a suicide. But recent research has revealed that the judges who had appointed the independent counsel investigating his death were worried about “be[ing] charged as conspirators in the cover-up,” in the words of Judge John Butzner.

Butzner was part of a three-judge panel on the Special Division of the District of Columbia Circuit that had appointed Kenneth Starr to investigate several matters relating to the Clinton’s Whitewater land deal, an inquiry that grew to include Foster’s 1993 death.

Notes between the now-deceased Butzner and his colleagues Peter Fay and David Sentelle are part of the collection of Butzner’s papers at the University of Virginia’s law library. They show discussion about whether to include the testimony of Whitewater grand jury witness Patrick Knowlton, who had been at Fort Marcy Park the day Foster’s body was found.  As a passerby, he testified that Foster’s Honda was not at the park at the time of death.  Foster therefore could not have driven to the park in his car as claimed by Starr.

Knowlton asked the judges to include additional evidence based on official records contradicting Starr’s report: Other witnesses did not see Foster’s car, the gun found was not Foster’s, there was a bullet hole in Foster’s neck, crime scene photographs and X-rays had disappeared.   Knowlton provided evidence he was the victim of witness intimidation by Starr’s staff.

On Sept. 24, 1997, Judge Sentelle sent his colleagues Knowlton’s motion to include comments and factual information as an appendix to the report on Foster’s death. Sentelle told them: “The question of what to do with his comments is not an easy one. … If I were forced to decide the question alone, it would be my inclination to deny the motion.”

Starr Knowlton

Starr & Knowlton Click to see how this meeting came about.

Judge Fay disagreed with Sentelle. “[Knowlton] does comment on specific findings and conclusions in the report,” he argued.  “He contradicts specific factual matters and takes issue with the very basics of the report filed by the [Independent Counsel].”

The following day Butzner concurred. “I suspect if we deny the motion we will be charged as conspirators in the cover-up,” he wrote. “I suggest we let the motion and the attachments speak for themselves.”

That afternoon, Sentelle faxed his colleagues a message that, after reviewing their memos, he had changed his mind and agreed to draft an order granting the motion. So on Sept. 26, the court ordered that Knowlton’s comments and evidence be included in Starr’s report.  On Sept. 29, Starr filed a motion appealing the order. It was denied the next day, marking the first time in history that an Independent Counsel was ordered to include in his report evidence of a cover-up by his own investigators.

After Starr’s motion was denied and before the report was made public, Knowlton and his attorney visited the Associated Press office to show the reporter on the case the evidence contradicting Starr that had been ordered part of the final report.

They were not prepared for his response. “[The reporter] told us the story was already written and [the cause of death] was suicide,” Knowlton told the Hyattsville Life & Times. “We did not believe the press could ignore the court-ordered attachment.”

Now, for 13 years, the American press has not reported on the Knowlton appendix, and the attachments did not “speak for themselves” as Butzner envisioned.  But the press has reported the latest news about Kenneth Starr — he will become the president of Baylor University this June.

This article appeared originally in the April 2010 Hyattsville (MD) Life and Times.  All the documents described in the article, including the Knowlton appendix ordered included with Kenneth Starr’s report over his strenuous objection—and the objection, itself—can be found here.  The complete Starr report on Foster’s death, including the vital Knowlton appendix, is hereThe Washington Post, however, protecting Starr’s reputation in a manner that the three judges, to their credit, refused to do, have what it claims to be the full Starr report here.  In an act worthy of Pravda in the old Soviet Union, The Post has censored out the Knowlton appendix.

April 14, 2010

Peschmann’s Scalice passage appears on page 106 of her book. At this point the reader might as well just continue with his Internet reading and ditch the book. The Knowlton appendix referred to—by dint of the judges’ decision as much a part of the official report as the work of Starr’s team—thoroughly destroys Peschmann’s thesis. She guesses that Foster, after going out and eating some more somewhere, came back to the White House shortly after 5 o’clock and shot himself in his office with his own gun and was then transported to Fort Marcy Park and dumped there by panicked fellow White House lawyers working late.

VINCE_FOSTER_HANDGUNWe learn from Knowlton’s document, though, that the widow, Lisa, was shown a silver gun and told that it was the one found at the park, when the gun found at the park was black and therefore not the one that the family brought up from Arkansas. The gun, then, appears to have been planted. We also learn that the one wound seen at the park by witnesses was to Foster’s neck—an apparent bullet entrance wound—and no one there saw any exit wound in the back of the head, much less the half-dollar-sized one that was shown in the autopsy sketch. The missing fatal bullet that Peschmann makes a big fuss about was likely not missing at all but still in Foster’s head. The “malfunctioning” X-ray machine that failed to detect the bullet was not malfunctioning at all; the corrupt autopsy doctor, James Beyer, simply falsified the autopsy report.

The best evidence strongly indicates that Foster was driven to Fort Marcy Park—which happens, by coincidence or not, to FT MARCY PARKbe quite near CIA headquarters—where he was surprised by someone who pressed a small caliber pistol to his neck and fired it upward into his brain. That is the scenario strongly suggested by Starr’s lead investigator, Miguel Rodriguez, in his resignation letter and his memorandum for the record.

Peschmann makes no mention of Rodriguez. Her one reference to Knowlton comes in the second sentence of her climactic Chapter 12, “At 4:30 p.m., on July 20, 1993, according to an eyewitness, Foster’s car was not at the parking lot at Fort Marcy Park.”

The accompanying endnote, no. 294, has this reference, “Kenneth W. Starr, Independent Counsel, Report of the Death of Vincent W. Foster, October 10, 1997, Appendix to Report; September 23, 1997 letter from Patrick Knowlton’s attorney, John H. Clarke.”

So there it is again, but the reader, unless he ferrets it out for himself, would never guess how significant that appendix, and its inclusion in the report over Starr’s objection, really is. Thanks to that earlier endnote, though, not a great deal of ferreting is required. It’s right there in the links, and the accompanying article explains its significance.

Having revealed what newspaper, magazine, and book writers across the political spectrum have worked hard to conceal, Marinka Peschmann, then, has managed to write a book that is not altogether worthless. One can only wonder if she knows it.

Judge Posner’s One-Way Mirror

Judge Posner’s One-Way Mirror

by DC Dave

I wrote and posted on my web site the following poem a little more than a year ago:

 The One-Way Mirror

 “Freedom of information”

Is in a tyrannical mess

Big Brother knows more and more,

While he shows us less and less.

6a00d8341c730253ef01b8d05e1526970c

Now, as reported by Glenn Greenwald, federal judge Richard Posner has come forward to tell us that that is exactly how things should be. “Like so many federal judges,” writes Greenwald, “Judge Posner recognizes rights only when they belong to agents of the state or the economic elite. When it’s ordinary citizens at issue, he snidely rejects any such protections. Of course, this is exactly backwards: those exercising public power (police officers) have a lower entitlement to privacy than private individuals. But power-servants like Judge Posner view only actors of the state and those who serve it (such as himself) as entitled to these prerogatives. That’s become the corrupt essence of the U.S. justice system, and it’s perfectly expressed by Judge Posner’s radically divergent views based on whose privacy is at stake.”

It comes as no surprise to us that Judge Posner, described by Wikipedia as “the most cited legal scholar of the 20th century,” should emerge as the perfect spokesman for our controlling criminal elite. Here, reprinted with refreshed links, is the short article we wrote about him in 1999. It is the sort of thing that you will not be reading in organs of the “approved Left opposition,” such as Salon magazine, where Greenwald rose to national prominence.

Posner, the Propagandist

No, not that one. There’s another one out there. Check this out:

Judge Richard A. Posner of the United States Seventh CircuitThe true “Clinton haters” are only the fringe of the considerable opposition to him, but a fringe that bled into and in the eyes of many contaminated the investigation and prosecution of his suspected crimes. The fringe has beliefs best described as paranoid fantasies such as that Vince Foster, the Deputy White House Counsel who committed suicide early in Clinton’s first term, was murdered because he knew too much about the Clintons’ complicity in Whitewater crimes; that Clinton when Governor of Arkansas had operated an international drug-trafficking ring from a secret airport in the state; that Clinton is or was a cocaine addict and as a result has had to have surgery on his nose (cocaine destroys the septum); and that his supporters regularly murder anyone who might reveal his illegalities to the world. In or near the fringe is the wealthy philanthropist, Richard Mellon Scaife, who has financed investigations into whether Vince Foster was murdered. (That Foster was murdered is the core, the defining, belief of the Clinton haters.)

–Richard A. Posner, An Affair of State, The Investigation, Impeachment, and Trial of President Clinton. Harvard University Press, 1999, pp. 62-63

Do we need any more evidence of the corruption of our institutions? How would you like to have the man who penned those lines of pure, unadulterated propaganda passing judgment over you in a court of law or deciding whether you pass or fail in a law school class? Richard A. Posner is a noted legal scholar with many books and articles to his credit. He is also the chief judge of the U. S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit (See Judge Richard A. Posner), but when it comes to the matter of the highest ranking federal official since President Kennedy to die a suspicious, violent death, all he has to offer is childish name-calling and the brazen dragging of red herrings.

As a learned legal professional he would certainly know that we are not dealing in “beliefs” here, but a very large body of evidence that simply has to be swept under the rug or the government would fall. So he does his part by sweeping most vigorously. He can get by with characterizing the charges of the doubters of the official government/press line with respect to the worst of the scandals as “paranoid fantasies” because the news of the existence of the Clarke/Knowlton addendum to the Starr Report on Foster has been completely suppressed, as has a lot of other important news. You can read the addendum at FBICOVER-UP.COM to see what they are keeping from you. Judge Posner certainly knows all about it, but he writes with the smug assurance that most of you are ignorant. Tyrants have always liked it best that way.

David Martin

September 8, 1999

 

Since 1999 we have discovered quite a bit more evidence that Judge Posner, with what he wrote in his book, was a participant in the cover-up of a high level murder. That evidence is perhaps best summed up in our most recent article on the subject, “Dissenting Memo Surfaces from Starr Team,” about the frustration that Kenneth Starr’s first chief investigator, Miguel Rodriguez, encountered before he was forced to resign in disgust. Before that, we also published Rodriguez’s very damning resignation letter, which, like the memorandum, has been completely blacked out by the press.

Two members of Starr’s murder cover-up team who did not dissent, John Bates and Brett Kavanaugh, have since been rewarded for their work with appointments to the federal bench. Along with Judge Posner they demonstrate beyond doubt that our federal judiciary is not about truth and justice; it is about raw, naked, corrupt power. Glenn Greenwald’s recent revelations that, in Posner’s view, only the power wielders have any right to privacy is only so much icing on the cake.

Dog Torture at Bottom of CIA Scandal

Dog Torture at Bottom of CIA Scandal

by DC Dave

The torture report released by the Senate Intelligence Committee has answered a big question we had about those “enhanced interrogation techniques” employed by the CIA on prisoners from the first day we heard about them. They were presented to us as a necessary evil to get to the bottom of the 9/11 attacks and to prevent such atrocities from occurring in the future. That made no sense when it was evident that the captives were not the culprits in the attacks. How could they have drawn up a plan that depended for its success upon a number of very improbable things happening, the most improbable of which was that America’s air defense command would sit idly by while one airliner after another strayed radically from its designated flight path? It is akin to drawing up a pass play in football that will succeed only if the pass defenders all fall down.

If one of the captives might have been in some way tangentially involved in the 9/11 atrocities, the last thing we would have wanted to do would be to torture the truth out of him, for the truth would certainly lead in directions that we would rather not go. We might as well have tortured Dick Cheney if it’s the truth we were after.

It struck me as overkill in the extreme if, by rounding up and torturing assorted unfortunate Muslims, we were simply continuing to carry through the fake, sort of like the quarterback who retreats from the line and goes through a passing motion after he has handed the ball off (to continue with our football analogy). Now, in his analysis of the Senate report, Thierry Meyssan has shown that that was not the purpose of the CIA’s vile torture program. Its purpose was to break down the captives in the manner in which noted psychologist Martin Seligman broke down his captive dogs, by random torture to condition them to do or say anything we wanted of them:

The Senate Committee did not discuss whether the confessions of the human guinea pigs were extorted or inculcated, but after explaining that supervisors were conditioning experts and not interrogators, the Committee explains at length the fact that none of these “confessions” has allowed us to anticipate anything. It demonstrates that the CIA lied by claiming that they had helped prevent further attacks. The Commission does not write that information on al-Qaeda in these confessions is fabricated, but notes that it all was verifiably false. In doing so, the Commission explicitly refutes the arguments that were used to justify torture and implicitly cancels the testimonies which were used to link al-Qaeda to the attacks of Sept. 11.

This report confirms, officially, several items of information we presented to our readers and that contradict and invalidate the work of Atlanticist think tanks, universities and the media since September 11, both in regard to the 2001 attacks themselves and with regard to al-Qaeda.

Following the publication of excerpts from this report, it appears that all the evidence cited in the report of the Presidential Commission of Inquiry into the September 11 attacks connecting these to al-Qaeda is false. There no longer exists to date a shred of evidence for attributing the attacks to Al Qaeda: There is no evidence that the 19 people accused of being airline pirates could have been found that day in one of the four planes, and none of the former members of Al Qaeda’s testimonials confessing to the attacks is genuine. (Emphasis added)

The CIA torture regime, you see, was instituted under the supervision of two handsomely paid consulting psychologists, James Mitchell and Bruce Jessen, whose work was guided by the model of “learned helplessness” developed by the aforementioned Dr. Seligman. “They were not intended to obtain a confession or information, but to inculcate a narrative or behavior in the subjects.”

Even so, the copious torture, including 183 waterboarding sessions, administered to the alleged “mastermind” of the 9/11 attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, was apparently insufficient to get him to say what we wanted him to say. Only after the CIA kidnapped his sons and threatened to do who-knows-what to them did he finally ridiculously claim “to have directed just about every major terrorism attack against the United States over the past fifteen years.”

Dr. Seligman has objected mightily to an assertion made by Meyssan back in 2010 that he actually oversaw the CIA torture program. He concluded his letter to VoltaireNet.org this way:

I have never worked on interrogation; I have never seen an interrogation and I have only a passing knowledge of the literature on interrogation.

I am grieved and horrified that good science, which has helped so many people overcome learned helplessness and depression, has been used for such inhumane purposes.

Most importantly, I never did and never would provide any assistance in torture. I strongly disapprove of it. (Seligman’s emphasis)

Taking Dr. Seligman at his word, his objection to torture is based upon a very narrow, species-specific definition of the word, because his primary claim to fame is based upon experiments that can only be described as the cruelest of torture of man’s best friend. Here is how it is described in Wikipedia:

In Part 1 of Seligman and Steve Maier’s experiment, three groups of dogs were placed in harnesses. Group 1 dogs were simply put in the harnesses for a period of time and later released. Groups 2 and 3 consisted of “yoked pairs.” A dog in Group 2 would be intentionally subjected to pain by being given electric shocks, which the dog could end by pressing a lever. A Group 3 dog was wired in series with a Group 2 dog, receiving shocks of identical intensity and duration, but his lever did not stop the electric shocks. To a dog in Group 3, it seemed that the shock ended at random, because it was his paired dog in Group 2 that was causing it to stop. For Group 3 dogs, the shock was apparently “inescapable.” Group 1 and Group 2 dogs quickly recovered from the experience, but Group 3 dogs learned to be helpless, and exhibited symptoms similar to chronic clinical depression.

In Part 2 of the Seligman and Maier experiment, these three groups of dogs were tested in a shuttle-box apparatus, in which the dogs could escape electric shocks by jumping over a low partition. For the most part, the Group 3 dogs, who had previously learned that nothing they did had any effect on the shocks, simply lay down passively and whined. Even though they could have easily escaped the shocks, the dogs didn’t try. Their lack of attempt was due to an effect called retardation of learning. Learning that response and shock are independent made it more difficult to learn that a response does produce relief by terminating shock. The emotional stress that the dogs experience when learning that the trauma is uncontrollable produced failure to escape.

Replace “dogs” with “detainees” and “electric shocks” with waterboarding, sleep deprivation, sensory deprivation, prolonged stress positions, rectal rehydration, and whatever depraved form of torture Mitchell, Jessen, and their CIA disciples were able to dream up, and what you have is Seligman’s “learned helplessness” for humans. And the good Doctor Seligman is shocked, shocked that people would do such things. His purpose in addressing a gathering of military personnel on the subject, he says, was to better prepare them for encountering the torture that the enemy might visit upon them. This is a perfect echo of the rationale originally offered by the formulators of the CIA MKULTRA mind control program. They were only reacting, they would have us believe, to the brainwashing to which our POWs were subjected during the Korean War.

This writer is not the least bit shocked that psychologists, these modern day high priests of our secular humanist society, should be found at the very heart of this latest assault upon human decency. See my most recent articles on the subject, “Abuse of Psychiatry in the Kennedy Assassination” and “More Abuse of Psychiatry in the JFK Cover-up.” In the first of those articles we note that Dr. Howard Rome of the Mayo Clinic even prepared a “psychological autopsy” of Lee Harvey Oswald to explain his inner motivation for killing the president, in the absence of any apparent outward motive for doing so. In the Vince Foster case Kenneth Starr trotted out “suicidologist” Dr. Alan Berman to pronounce, in the absence of good forensic evidence, “with a 100% degree of medical certainty,” that the “perfectionist” Foster killed himself. Yale psychology professor Dr. Sidney Blatt did his part by pronouncing Foster just the sort of perfectionist personality type that is highly prone to self-murder. The set-up for the assassination of Defense Secretary James Forrestal was all provided by psychiatrists, and the definitive cover-up book on his death, Professor Arnold Rogow’s James Forrestal, A Study of Personality, Politics, and Policy is nothing but one long psychological autopsy. Topping them all, as we might expect with his background in both the CIA and the psychology profession, is Professor Jerrold Post of George Washington University who tried his hand at both the Forrestal and Foster cover-ups with almost comical results.

Surveying this sorry record, not to mention the nine psychologists/psychiatrists that well-heeled Maryland politician Ruthann Aron found who, for a fee, were able to persuade one juror that she plotted to kill her husband and his lawyer because she was abused as a child, we are inclined to agree with H.L. Mencken about the entire profession:

Barring sociology (which is yet, of course, scarcely a science at all, but rather a monkeyshine which happens to pay, like play-acting or theology), psychology is the youngest of the sciences, and hence chiefly guesswork, empiricism, hocus-pocus, poppycock. On the one hand, there are still enormous gaps in its data, so that the determination of its simplest principles remains difficult, not to say impossible; and, on the other hand, the very hollowness and nebulosity of it, particularly around the edges, encourages a horde of quacks to invade it, sophisticate it and make nonsense of it. Worse, this state of affairs tends to such confusion of effort and direction that the quack and the honest inquirer are often found in the same man. It is, indeed, a commonplace to encounter a professor who spends his days in the laborious accumulation of psychological statistics, sticking pins into babies and plotting upon a chart the ebb and flow of their yells, and his nights chasing poltergeists and other such celestial fauna over the hurdles of the spiritualist’s atelier, or gazing into a crystal in the privacy of his own chamber. The Binet test and the buncombe of mesmerism are alike the children of what we roughly denominate psychology, and perhaps of equal legitimacy. Even so ingenious and competent an investigator as Prof. Dr. Sigmund Freud, who has told us a lot that is of the first importance about the materials and machinery of thought, has also told us a lot that is trivial and dubious. The essential doctrines of Freudism, no doubt, come close to the truth, but many of Freud’s remoter deductions are far more scandalous than sound, and many of the professed Freudians, both American and European, have grease-paint on their noses and bladders in their hands and are otherwise quite indistinguishable from evangelists and circus clowns. (“The Genealogy of Etiquette”)

The main thing that has changed since Mencken made those observations in the 1920s is that Freud’s reputation has gone down quite a bit.

Americans Heavily Favor Torture

In the face of these revelations of organized depravity by the CIA, a Washington Post-ABC News poll found that the American public overwhelmingly supported it. “By a margin of almost 2 to 1 — 59 percent to 31 percent — those interviewed said that they support the CIA’s brutal methods, with the vast majority of supporters saying that they produced valuable intelligence.

“In general, 58 percent say the torture of suspected terrorists can be justified ‘often’ or ‘sometimes.’”

How can we explain this reaction? Once again we must turn to Mencken, as he reflects upon the final political defeat of Illinois reform governor, John P. Altgeld:

What lesson is in his career for the rest of us? The lesson, it seems to me, that any man who devotes himself to justice and common decency, under democracy, is a very foolish fellow—that the generality of men have no genuine respect for these things, and are always suspicious of the man who upholds them. Their public relations, like their private relations, are marked by the qualities that mark the inferior man at all times and everywhere: cowardice, stupidity and cruelty. They are in favor of whoever is wielding the whip, even when their own hides must bear the blows. How easy it was to turn the morons of the American Legion upon their fellow-slaves! How heroically they voted for Harding, and then for Coolidge after him—and so helped to put down the Reds! Dog eats dog, world without end. In the Pullman strike at least half the labor unions of the United States were against the strikers, as they were against the more recent steel strikers, and helped to beat them. Altgeld battled for the under dog all his life—and the under dog bit him in the end. (“Heretics”)

Oh, but the problem, you say, is that they just don’t know, in spite of all that has been reported. And you would have a point, but my guess is that if they knew everything that Dr. Seligman did to dogs and the CIA did to captive Muslim suspects, their greatest indignation would be directed towards the illustrious psychologist.

George Bush’s First Torture Scandal

George Bush’s First Torture Scandal

 by DC Dave

cheney-bush_water_boarding

George W. Bush had almost completed his first year as president when I wrote the article that is reproduced below (updated in 2007 with the long lead-off quote from Richard Wright). Most of the article is a reprint of the article from the tabloid Star written in 1999 when Bush was still the governor of Texas. If you do a Net search of the terms “Bush torture fraternity” you will see that others have also reported on the severe hazing—amounting to torture—that Bush presided over as president of Delta Kappa Epsilon (DKE) fraternity at Yale University, but I was the first to put the full story on the Internet.

At that time, we had invaded Afghanistan, but the revelations of the torture engaged in by our military and the CIA were yet to come. My introduction to the Star article contained some grave forebodings about what the little man from Texas was capable of. Fortunately, the worst of them did not—or have not yet—come to pass. We have not yet gone the way of Joseph Stalin’s Soviet Union. But that is cold comfort for the hundreds of Muslim victims of the other things the article portended, rampant torture with George Bush’s blessings.

Here is a full reproduction of that article:

Power-Lust and President Bush

“If this were a dictatorship, it’d be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I’m the dictator.” – George W. Bush

To hold absolute power over others, to define what they should love or fear, to decide if they were to live or die and thereby to ravage the whole of their beings–that was a sensuality that made sexual passion look pale by comparison. It was a noneconomic conception of existence. The rewards for those followers who deserved them did not cost one penny; the only price attached to rewards was the abject suffering of some individual victim who was dominated by the recipient of the reward of power…. No, they were not dumb, these [subordinate power wielders]…. They knew a thing or two about mankind. They had reached far back into history and had dredged up from its black waters the most ancient of all realities, man’s desire to be a god…. How far wrong most people were in their appraisal of dictators! The popular opinion was that these men were hankering for their pick of beautiful virgins, good food, fragrant cigars, aged whisky, land, gold…. But what these men wanted was something much harder to get and the mere getting of it was in itself a way of keeping it. It was power, not just the exercise of bureaucratic control, but personal power to be wielded directly upon the lives and bodies of others. –Richard Wright, The Outsider, pp. 198-199

Because of his clear intellectual limitations, because he would be an embarrassment on a quiz program like bush-torture-of-naked-manJeopardy, or even Who Wants to be a Millionaire or The Weakest Link, people tend to take George W. Bush too lightly. Intellectuals like Leon Trotsky, Nikolai Bukharin and Evgeny Preobrazhensky, and millions of other people took Joseph Stalin too lightly, too, and we know how that story played out. A person’s other dimensions can be of much greater moment than his ability to engage in abstract reasoning.

With that in mind, it is useful to examine George W’s performance in his first executive position, his first opportunity to wield power over others. The following article, which appeared in the supermarket tabloid, Star, a couple of summers ago, seems to be quite well documented. The essential facts alleged, that George W. Bush was president of a social fraternity at Yale that was disciplined for branding pledges, were also related in a Washington Post feature on Bush some time later, but The Post played them down and buried them away.

STAR, July 27, 1999 Special Star Investigation

George W. Bush in Torture Scandal by Richard Gooding

Presidential candidate George W. Bush once led a Yale fraternity that barbarically branded its new members on their backsides with a red-hot metal rod as part of a sadistic hazing practice.

“I got branded and I didn’t like it one bit,” Professor Bradford Lee* of the elite Naval War College in Newport, R.I.—an ex-football player and onetime member of Bush’s Delta Epsilon Kappa [sic] fraternity—told STAR in an exclusive interview.

apology“It did burn,” he says, recalling the terrifying experience. “I think I still have the mark on me.”

Bush, the oldest son of former President George Bush, is now the runaway front-runner for the Republican nomination for president. His campaign stresses responsible individual behavior, family values and compassion for one’s fellow citizens.

But a STAR investigation has revealed that he was president of Delta Epsilon Kappa when the hazing scandal broke in the campus newspaper in the late ’60s-leading to the fraternity being fined and the branding practice halted.

Amazingly, Bush, now the governor of Texas, defended the illegal torture of the young fraternity pledges at the time as a harmless prank-insisting that it was comparable to “only a cigarette burn” which left “no scarring mark physically or mentally.”

But others said the branding resulted in a second-degree burn that left a half-inch scab in the shape of the Greek letter Delta.

Lee—who still bears the mark 32 years later—is not sure who actually wielded the brand because the pledges were not allowed to look at their tormentors. “But I do know that George Bush was very active in all the fraternity activities then.”

Lee, who was a guard on the Yale football team, recalled that the branding came after “a long initiation that went on into the early morning hours.”

He says the idea was to wear you out so much that you allowed your bare flesh to be singed. “I was already tired from football practice earlier that day. I was so groggy I wasn’t exactly sensitive to what they were up to. I wasn’t very happy about it.”

The branding was a key reason why Lee quit the fraternity after just one year. “It got things off on a sour note, you might say,” he notes.

Bill Katz, now a community college teacher in northern New Jersey, told STAR that the branding was done with “a wire coat hanger twisted into a triangle and heated up” in the fireplace.

“They touched you just above the buttocks, in the small of the back,” he says.

bush-abu-ghraib-torture-03

And Boston lawyer Franklin Levy said that to increase the fear of the moment, the older fraternity men first brandished an actual glowing hot branding iron-to make them think that was what awaited them.

“When they burned me,” Levy remembers, “I jumped a mile.”

Before the brandings, pledges had to endure hours of being kicked and a vicious round of tannings with wooden paddles—another practice that Yale has ruled taboo.

“On that night,” according to an account in the Yale Daily News in 1967, each pledge was forced to sit with his head between his legs, motionless, for two to five hours.

“If he coughed, raised his hand or talked, he was kicked by an older brother.” After all the beatings, recalled one fraternity member, the branding was almost a relief.

In the wake of the Yale Daily News’ expose of the fraternity’s hazing, Bush, whose father was also a DKE at Yale, admitted the branding to the New York Times in November 1967.

But Bush—whose college nickname was “Lip” for his Texas wisecracks—also ripped into Yale for being too “Haughty” to “allow this type of pledging to go on.”

Bush’s days and nights at Yale were mostly remembered as non-stop party and prank time by his former fraternity brothers. During his junior year, he was arrested on a disorderly conduct charge in the theft of a Christmas wreath from a storefront to decorate the DKE house. At a football game against Princeton, he helped tear down a goal post and ended up being hauled to the campus police station.

“We drank heavily at DKE,” says Gregory Gallico, now a Boston plastic surgeon, as he recalled Bush and his other fraternity brothers. “It was absolutely off the wall-appalling.

“I cannot for the life of me figure out how we all made it through.”

Sadism for Its Own Sake

monkey-torture-matinee Seen in this light, it’s very clear that the CIA’s torture was, and is, not really about intelligence gathering. It’s a power trip. As Richard Wright so well explains, it’s getting off on playing god. There’s not a lot of useful intelligence collected from the continuing torture of fraternity pledges around the country.

It’s a well-known fact that the Ivy League is a primary recruiting ground for the CIA. Surely their preference is for those who have been in fraternities there. George W. Bush, as president of the torturing DKE social fraternity and a member, like John Kerry, of the sinister Skull and Bones secret society, was so well qualified to be a part of our secret government that he was made president of the entire country. The genesis of the widespread torture on Bush’s watch as president is, more than anything, in the mentality that he and his personality type represent.

For what it is worth, the only person who I have known for sure was a covert CIA operative, the late Scott Runkle, was a graduate of Dartmouth College. Dartmouth, as the model for the movie Animal House, is notorious for its fraternity scene and the hazing that goes on there, although I don’t know if Runkle belonged to a fraternity. I wish now that I had asked him.

One of the worst offenders, both at Dartmouth and nationally, is Sigma Alpha Epsilon. The reports that the late Vincent Foster might have been a spy for Israel may not be true, but he was president of SAE at Davidson College. He might well have been one of our spooks involved in the drug smuggling operation through Mena Airport.

* Gooding is best known for having broken the news of Bill Clinton counselor Dick Morris’ toe-sucking frolics with a call girl.  More recently he has been writing for the more mainstream magazine, Vanity Fair.

** Dr. Bradford Lee was recently appointed to the prestigious Henry A. Kissinger Chair in Foreign Policy and International Relations at the John W. Kluge Center of the Library of Congress. I wonder if he would show me the brand that “Lip” and the boys gave him.

Note from BuelahMan: I covered this torture stuff ad nauseum for years. So many people told me that I was wrong… that Americans would never torture others. But, of course, we did torture. We have always tortured, even when our hypocritical leaders lie and say we don’t.

But it’s ok: We’re The USA!

The Great Suppression of 2014

The Great Suppression of 2014

by DC Dave

media_blackout_by_dndnma

When I conceived the idea for this article, I had only one example of important news that was completely suppressed by the mainstream American news media this year in mind. I have since thought of two more that are certainly worthy candidates for the “Biggest News Suppression of the Year” award, however. While I am still going to devote most of this article to the original topic, I have decided to invite readers to give their opinion as to which should receive the award and why they think that. They are to do that by taking part in the forum on B’Man’s Revolt.

Reader participation begins with a search of the Internet using as many search engines as you care to use. Here are the three word combinations to search:

  1. Stan Eury Lee Wicker indictment
  2. German pilot MH17
  3. CIA German journalist

Complete Blackout on Expanded Indictment

EuryIndictment

Stan Eury Indicted

 

What I discovered on #1 is that, amazing as it may seem, more than two months after the expanded and revised federal indictment of the leader of “the largest alien smuggling ring in our nation’s history” was handed down, absolutely no one in the press has reported it. My article, “Feds Pile New Charges on Top Alien Smuggler” continues to be the first and the last word. As we suggest in the first of the “Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression,” if it’s not in the news it’s as if it didn’t happen.

Anyone capable of thinking for himself just a little bit will know that the story is not being ignored because it is not newsworthy. When the smaller indictment was handed down, not involving the primary way in which Eury’s operation has brought future illegal aliens into the country, the H-2A program for farm workers, nor implicating Eury’s two chief lieutenants, even The Washington Post found it sufficiently newsworthy to report upon, albeit belatedly and by printing a story submitted by a North Carolina-based freelancer.

In the meantime, the Associated Press, which has ignored both installments of the federal indictment, sent around a totally un-newsworthy fluff piece touting the great virtues of Eury’s North Carolina Growers’ Association, which I described at the time as an “Infomercial.” If you haven’t already done it when you read the earlier article, do the same sort of Net search that I recommend above for the pre-set title of the AP article, “NC farmers lead country on legal foreign workers.” It’s still up at lots of mainstream sites with the same headline at each place.

Jim_Garrison

Jim Garrison

It’s quite a rare thing when the press gives much more favorable news coverage to the person accused of a crime than it does to his government accusers. The only precedent that I can think of that comes close is the treatment that the press gave to New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison when he brought Clay Shaw to court on charges of complicity in the John Kennedy assassination. But Garrison was only a local DA. We’re talking about a huge federal indictment in the current case. We have also learned from our contacts within the North Carolina Employment Security Commission (NCESC) that the indictment is the result of a multi-agency investigation that began during the last year of the Bush administration. It represents a bipartisan effort by the proper authorities to punish and stamp out fraud and corruption in the foreign guest worker program. If you thought that the news media would get behind them in their efforts, then you don’t understand our news media.

Back in October I discovered that the co-writer of that NCGA “infomercial,” Kate Brumback, is based in Atlanta and that her special areas of coverage should have made her aware of the Eury indictment. That made her the perfect person for my email, although I open copied her accomplice, Ray Henry, who specializes in immigration and energy matters:

October 22, 2014

To: Kate Brumback

Subject: NCGA Leadership Under Federal Indictment for Fraud

Hi Kate,

5d8iZLv8

Kate Brumback

I see from the Internet that you specialize in both immigration and legal matters.  Consequently, it is somewhat surprising that in that article that went out with your name and Ray Henry’s on it back in April heaping praise upon the North Carolina Growers’ Association (NCGA) you somehow managed not to report that the executive director of the NCGA, Stan Eury, and his daughter were under indictment by a federal grand jury for major abuses of the guest worker program.

Now the charges have been dropped against his daughter because she has apparently negotiated a plea bargain and has become a cooperating witness.  The indictment has also been expanded from 41 counts to 87 counts and the agricultural part of Eury’s operation is much more directly implicated than before.   Furthermore, replacing Eury’s daughter in the indictment are his top two lieutenants, Lee Wicker and Ken White.

You can read all about it in my article, “Feds Pile New Charges on Top Alien Smuggler.”  Considering how badly you misled the public with that earlier article, I believe that it is particularly incumbent upon you to set the record straight by reporting these new developments.  Don’t you?

Dave

The email did not bounce back from either addressee, so I assume it reached its target. As you might have guessed, I got no response, and no article providing the needed corrective of the misperception of the NCGA that the article engendered has appeared.

Before that I had nudged the NC freelancer, with whom I had established a friendly email relationship, to write up the new developments. He told me that before he could begin to write about it he would have to find someone who would pay him for it, suggesting that the future for that didn’t look very bright. His getting that first piece into The Post is looking more and more like a fluke. Predictably, nothing on the new indictment has appeared with his byline on it to my knowledge.

WRALBut what about WRAL television in Raleigh, which broke the first indictment story? It’s looking like that was a fluke as well. They were among the news organs that carried the “infomercial,” although it’s no longer up on their site.

One of my informants within the NCESC alerted them, as well as the Raleigh News and Observer and the Fayetteville Observer about the expanded indictment. The influential Raleigh paper has never written the first thing negative about the NCGA, so when they blew him off he was not surprised. But WRAL stiffed him as well.

The Fayetteville paper is much smaller, but it is near Eury’s headquarters in the small town of Vass and it had written a short piece on the first indictment after the federal prosecutors had sent out a press release. The writer of that earlier piece expressed some enthusiasm when contacted about the expanded indictment, which he had not heard about, but said that he would have to run it by his editor. That was the end of that.

Fayobmediablackout

Come to think of it, there is one area in which the lawbreakers almost always get a sympathetic press and the law enforcers get a bad press. That is illegal immigration. The illegal immigrants are always just “undocumented,” don’t you know?

The late comedian George Carlin said that he didn’t believe anything the government told him. But as we see in this instance, the government—or at least some elements of it—can be better than the press. We have seen it before, when we first used the “great suppression” term, in a section heading of Part 3 of “America’s Dreyfus Affair: The Case of the Death of Vincent Foster.” We called it “The Great Suppression of ’97.” The three-judge panel that appointed Kenneth Starr decided, over his strenuous objections, to include as an appendix the submission of the lawyer for the dissident witness, Patrick Knowlton, which, one of the judges wrote to the others, “…contradicts specific factual matters and takes issue with the very basics of the report filed by the [Independent Counsel].” That is to say, it destroys the conclusion of suicide. Here’s part of what I said about it at the time:

Now there has developed a popular notion, encouraged in no small part by the opinion molders in the mainstream press, that those who treat various official pronouncements with skepticism are simply “anti-government.” Such people may be contrasted with the media people themselves who show us how “responsible” they are by only giving us “the facts,” as long as those facts bear an officially-approved label. But here we have a case of one official government body, the three-judge federal panel, administering a slap in the face to another official government body, the Office of the Independent Counsel. Certainly citizen critics who applaud the action of the judges can hardly be called “anti-government,” nor can the nation’s press, who unanimously covered up the fact of the judges’ inclusion of the Knowlton/Clarke Addendum, be called anything that resembles “responsible.” The adjective that comes to my mind is “corrupt.”

German Press Breaking Away?

ulfkotte_neu-300x150

Udo Ulfkotte

Those two stories out of Germany are, to my mind, very important as well. The first one strongly suggests that the story touted by the American government and press that that Malaysian airliner that crashed over Ukraine was brought down by an errant missile launched by pro-Russian separatists is not true. Rather, the German expert concludes that Ukrainian fighter jets must have shot down the liner.

Performing our third Net search, we find the pronouncement by prominent German journalist, Udo Ulfkotte, that he and other Western journalists had long been bribed by the CIA to write things their way. To those of us who were familiar with the line often attributed to the CIA’s Frank Wisner that, “You could get a journalist cheaper than a good call girl, for a couple hundred dollars a month,” this was no great revelation, but coming publicly from the mouth of one of the bribed journalists it was big time news.

Because, like a growing number of people these days, I get most of my news from “alternative” sources on the Internet, it didn’t occur to me at first that these two news stories out of Germany had been suppressed. I had read about them from multiple sources. None of those sources, I finally realized, were even remotely what one might call “mainstream,” however.   My Net search then confirmed what I suspected. How about your search?

All-Time Great Suppressions?

censorship-610x400

That 1997 suppression of the full news about Kenneth Starr’s report on the death of Vincent Foster certainly should be very high on the list; and their blackout of my 2009 revelation of the resignation letter of his lead investigator, Miguel Rodriguez, and my 2013 exposure of his dissenting memorandum.

Another suppression was of the significant accomplishment of the current writer. That was the breaking free through the Freedom of Information Act of the official investigation of the death of the first secretary of defense James Forrestal from a fall from a 16th floor window of the Bethesda Naval Hospital. One might call that one “The Great Suppression of 2004.” The Seeley Mudd Manuscript Library of Princeton University even put out a press release about it, but the entire mainstream press completely ignored it. The press in this instance was, once again, worse than the government.

Then there was the “Great Suppression of 2006.” That was when The Times of London reported that in 2006 the Zionist extremist Stern Gang had in 1946 attempted to assassinate British Foreign Minister Ernest Bevin, his predecessor and future Prime Minister Anthony Eden, and a number of other high officials in Britain by sending letter bombs. The article is still up on Information Clearing House, but the story never made it into the mainstream American press. It’s a rare American, indeed, who knows that that bit of perfidy ever happened, or that the same group attempted to assassinate President Harry Truman by the same method a year later.

You, dear readers, might have candidates of your own for all time great suppressions and 2014 news suppressions by the press. I might not even know about them…because the news was suppressed. If so, let us know by weighing in at B’Man’s Revolt.

By the way, my NCESC informants tell me that the big visa-fraud trial of Stan Eury et al. has been postponed from its original November 2014 date to some time in late spring 2015. If the press should report on that trial it would expose their dereliction in reporting on what led up to it, so I think we can all get ready for “The Great Suppression of 2015.”
