Top 25 Censored Stories for 2009

April 11, 2009

Dear Readers,

If you have never heard of “Project Censored” – here is your chance.  The mission of “Project Censored” is to draw attention to important news stories that do not seem to “Make the news” and to explain why they don’t.  The organization underscores the importance of a free press in a free society.

Is it any wonder the spin-meisters of the corporate controlled mainstream media are shutting down newspapers and losing TV viewership, while the blogosphere is exploding?

People WANT to know the truth, people KNOW they are being lied to, and they are sick and tired of being treated like dim-witted children by the corporate press.

Here is the main link for Project Censored:

Yes Virginia, “Conspiracies” DO Exist!

conspiracy

From Dirty Truths by Michael Parenti

(1996, City Lights Books)

 

Almost as an article of faith, some individuals believe that conspiracies are either kooky fantasies or unimportant aberrations. To be sure, wacko conspiracy theories do exist. There are people who believe that the United States has been invaded by a secret United Nations army equipped with black helicopters, or that the country is secretly controlled by Jews or gays or feminists or black nationalists or communists or extraterrestrial aliens. But it does not logically follow that all conspiracies are imaginary.

Conspiracy is a legitimate concept in law: the collusion of two or more people pursuing illegal means to effect some illegal or immoral end. People go to jail for committing conspiratorial acts. Conspiracies are a matter of public record, and some are of real political significance. The Watergate break-in was a conspiracy, as was the Watergate cover-up, which led to Nixon's downfall. Iran-contra was a conspiracy of immense scope, much of it still uncovered. The savings and loan scandal was described by the Justice Department as "a thousand conspiracies of fraud, theft, and bribery," the greatest financial crime in history.

Often the term "conspiracy" is applied dismissively whenever one suggests that people who occupy positions of political and economic power are consciously dedicated to advancing their elite interests. Even when they openly profess their designs, there are those who deny that intent is involved. In 1994, the officers of the Federal Reserve announced they would pursue monetary policies designed to maintain a high level of unemployment in order to safeguard against "overheating" the economy. Like any creditor class, they preferred a deflationary course. When an acquaintance of mine mentioned this to friends, he was greeted skeptically, "Do you think the Fed bankers are deliberately trying to keep people unemployed?" In fact, not only did he think it, it was announced on the financial pages of the press. Still, his friends assumed he was imagining a conspiracy because he ascribed self-interested collusion to powerful people.

Those who suffer from conspiracy phobia are fond of saying: "Do you actually think there's a group of people sitting around in a room plotting things?" For some reason that image is assumed to be so patently absurd as to invite only disclaimers. But where else would people of power get together - on park benches or carousels? Indeed, they meet in rooms: corporate boardrooms, Pentagon command rooms, at the Bohemian Grove, in the choice dining rooms at the best restaurants, resorts, hotels, and estates, in the many conference rooms at the White House, the NSA, the CIA, or wherever. And, yes, they consciously plot - though they call it "planning" and "strategizing" - and they do so in great secrecy, often resisting all efforts at public disclosure. No one confabulates and plans more than political and corporate elites and their hired specialists. To make the world safe for those who own it, politically active elements of the owning class have created a national security state that expends billions of dollars and enlists the efforts of vast numbers of people.

Yet there are individuals who ask with patronizing, incredulous smiles, do you really think that the people at the top have secret agendas, are aware of their larger interests, and talk to each other about them? To which I respond, why would they not? This is not to say that every corporate and political elite is actively dedicated to working for the higher circles of power and property. Nor are they infallible or always correct in their assessments and tactics or always immediately aware of how their interests are being affected by new situations. But they are more attuned and more capable of advancing their vast interests than most other social groups.

The alternative is to believe that the powerful and the privileged are somnambulists, who move about oblivious to questions of power and privilege; that they always tell us the truth and have nothing to hide even when they hide so much; that although most of us ordinary people might consciously try to pursue our own interests, wealthy elites do not; that when those at the top employ force and violence around the world it is only for the laudable reasons they profess; that when they arm, train, and finance covert actions in numerous countries, and then fail to acknowledge their role in such deeds, it is because of oversight or forgetfulness or perhaps modesty; and that it is merely a coincidence how the policies of the national security state so consistently serve the interests of the transnational corporations and the capital-accumulation system throughout the world.

I think it’s pretty clear that Conspiracy is a dirty word for a reason: The Establishment engages in conspiratorial acts on a daily basis. It would be foolish for They not to publish loads of worthless historical facts, promote stereotypes along with skin-deep diversity, teach dismal sciences, and report misinformation in order to divide, distract, and mislead the serfs . . . for “adults” there’s that old, Banker-financed Marxist child’s fable of the Proletariat vs. Bourgeoisie which has crowded out the more accurate, generalized depiction of our situation: the ruling class vs. We, the People . . . Maybe this is just the chemtrails talking, but “Conspiracy Theorists” are not crazy for wanting to expose the men behind the curtain. The real crazies are the statists blinded by the curtain of red, white, and blue.

Foundingfather1776 recognizes the reality of “Conspiracies” …do YOU?

Maybe you have been so conditioned to equate “Conspiracy” with “crazy kooky” that you cannot think “outside the box?”  You cannot believe what your own eyes and ears tell you.

WAKE UP!  QUIT BEING PLAYED!  Yes there are crazies out there and yes there are also professional saboteurs spreading disinformation.  But use your God-Given brain and RECOGNIZE what is going on.  Ignorance is no longer an excuse.  The truth is out there, you have but to reach for it.

To help you in your journey, I would like to present some examples of “Conspiracy” where it cannot be questioned you are being lied to, manipulated and/or something major is being covered up:

Today is *Your* Lucky Day!

January 20, 2008

Why is that you might ask?

It is really quite simple. I will no longer inundate your poor email “inbox” with all my fascinating, penetrating and deeply invigorating emails!

I am not going to stop generating them, (you don’t get off that easily) but instead I will be posting them here, in my blog.

I want this blog to be a two-way conversation. Anyone can respond at anytime with any comment they wish, no registration required.

I want everyone who posts to feel they can say whatever they like, so please, no proper names. Let’s keep a respectable level of “web privacy.” If you create a made-up name to post and you want me to know the authorship, send me a private email (that is if your screen name is so obscure I can’t figure it out).

As you might suspect, many of my posts will deal with controversial subjects. Most of my posts will include links to outside sources that will support my arguments or provide additional information.

As I get started, I will be editing and re-posting some previous emails I have sent out (no proper names, including my own, will be posted). Many of you might have seen some of this information before, but I am hoping I will generate an additional audience so please forgive some redundancy.

I sincerely hope that this blog will help facilitate worthwhile discussion on topics that are important to ALL of us: Civil Liberties, War & Peace, Economics, Politics, and the various “hidden forces” that shape our world from the shadows. Let’s shine the bright light of truth on everything we can. Together, we can make a difference, and individually we might all be better able to remain free, healthy, wealthy & wise.

Cheers,

FoundingFather1776
