I am currently working on an AIDS piece, and it is proving extremely difficult for me. It will be done in a few days I think, but in the meantime I am violating one of the core concepts of blogging, not putting up enough fresh material.
This piece is the result of a discussion I had a while back stemming from Facebook and politics. It goes off in an unplanned direction.
What I see going on, with Facebook as the prime mover, is an ongoing and fake investigation into Donald Trump and Russian influence in our elections in 2016. It portends to be another Watergate, that is, the landscape is seeded with new clues on a regular basis. This is done to keep the issue alive and front and center. The purpose is to keep people who do pay attention to politics fixated on the wrong subject and asking the wrong questions. That keeps them out of the hair of real power, which operates behind a veil of media indifference and silence.
From the beginning it was apparent to me that Donald Trump did not win the election, surprising as that outcome was. But we can never know for sure. I draw this quote below from Tyrone’s JFKTV piece speaking of JFK’s election in 1960 …
The game is rigged to a predetermined outcome with each election, and this man of the people maneuver is for the myth makers in the media to forward the lie that there is in The United States of America a working democracy in effect.
Those words stuck with me. Of course Trump did not win the election, though he might have carried Utah, maybe Alaska too. It does not matter.
Carry it back even further, to the 1948 election, stolen on behalf of Harry S. Truman, the “S” standing, like Truman himself, for nothing.
How did Harry even get to be president at all? It was a backroom deal at the 1944 Democratic Convention in Chicago that removed Henry Wallace from the vice presidential slot, putting Truman there. Henry Wallace has been lionized by none other than Oliver Stone, of JFK fame, in his TV series The Untold History of the United States. We are told that Wallace was a truly progressive man who was unjustly removed from power. I know this is not true for several reasons … for one, Oliver Stone made a movie about it (Zal Rule*), and anyway, the man was Vice President. That does not happen with real people.
I have been mulling this over for a long time, and I admit that I am influenced by the Miles Mathis Group in this matter, and its work on the Abraham Lincoln assassination, which was staged and fake.
Lincoln had to be convinced to run even though he was too sick to serve another term. He probably said something like, “Look friends, I would love to oblige you, but there is no way I can handle the responsibilities of President for another term. It just isn’t possible. I need to retire and either nurse myself back to health or die in comfort. I think I have at least earned that privilege.”
His friends, realizing that they had to run Lincoln or perish, then came up with a brilliant plan. “See here, Abe,” they replied, “We understand your point, but we only need you for the election. We don’t need you for the rest of the term. Just give your inaugural address and then we will let you go.
Lincoln then looked at them, mystified, and said, “How are you going to do that?”
“We’ll fake your death. Just tell everyone you died. We will then secretly move you back to Illinois, or wherever you want to go, and it will be over. You just have to agree to stay on your farm and not show yourself in public.”
“I guess we can do that.”
“Of course we can. It has been done before. We fake deaths all the time. It isn’t nearly as hard as you think. We control the press and the police, and can easily quash any rumors.”
That all makes perfect sense, and I commend MMG for such insight. We have been critical of that group’s work from time to time, but not for the material put forth so much as the fact that it is fronted by that guy in Taos. Still, credit must be given where due.
So this is a project that, like AIDS, is simmering and then when undertaken becomes very difficult and time-consuming. I will get to it someday, as I am mostly retired now and love this sort of stuff. Here is something else that caught my eye long ago, printed in Parade Magazine :
NEW YORK (AP) _ Josef Stalin claimed that he used a secret understanding of English to his advantage during World War II conferences with Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill, Roosevelt’s son says.
In an article in Parade magazine, Elliott Roosevelt also said that Stalin told him in a post-war interview that he believed the president had been poisoned by members of the British prime minister’s ″gang.″
He wrote that Stalin told him in late 1946 that his mother, Eleanor Roosevelt, was barred from the Soviet Union because she had refused to allow Soviet diplomats to see FDR’s body after his death in 1945.
Stalin said he wanted his ambassador to have a look at Roosevelt’s corpse ″because they poisoned your father, of course, just as they have tried repeatedly to poison me,″ Elliott Roosevelt wrote.
When Roosevelt asked who ″they″ were, Stalin replied, ″The Churchill Gang 3/8** They poisoned your father, and they continue to try to poison me.″
That reads like classic misdirection. For one, it was in a trashy magazine that goes out to everyone who takes a newspaper. It is easy reading for the barely conscious, and meant to have wide circulation. For another, in cements in place a false lead, that FDR was poisoned, which people like Webster Tarpley pursue to this day. (This would make Tarpley an agent of Intel, or as MMG would say, an “anti,” if I understand that term correctly.) Either that, or he is none too bright. I opt for the former.
That tends to support my suspicion that Franklin Delano Roosevelt, like Lincoln, faked his death, and for the same reasons. He was tired, he did not want to serve a fourth term. So a conversation very much like the one imagined between Lincoln and his handlers by MMG transpired. FDR was told that all he had to do was stand for reelection, and in the meantime his successor had already been chosen and would be installed as VP, The Buck Stops Here guy, Harry Truman.
Roosevelt retired to Campobella Island to live out his days. Truman, installed in 1944 to take over in 1945, was, like JFK, mythically elected in a scripted contest in 1948.
Ah, another project. Anyone else care to take it on? I can’t be having all the fun.
