Breaking the Sound of Silence

The modern world of superficiality has clouded our ability to TRULY communicate with each other.

It often seems futile in our modern world of superficiality to speak with meaning. The classics of old have been replaced with the sleaze of today. Meaningful thoughts and ideas often remain unheard because of the shallowness of our modern society

Instead of reaching down within one’s soul, modern man reaches out toward mass media and looks toward the world of illusion to fill his brain with hollow thoughts nothingness.

How do we communicate with a world enchanted by the flashy appearance of our technological age? To a mass of people who escape the reality of their existence by taking part in the video drone and not in the natural world.

The words of those who see the world for what it truly is as tragic and unfortunate as it truly is has fallen on deaf ears. -- MrStosh

Sounds of silence

Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a streetlamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
No one dare
Disturb the sound of silence

“Fools” said I, “You do not know
Silence like a cancer grow
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you”
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said “The words of the prophets
Are written on subway walls
And tenement halls
And whispered in the sounds of silence”

Demographic Warfare: Weaponizing Immigration

At the end of 2014, the number of people, worldwide, forced to flee their homes rose to a staggering 59.5 million compared to 51.2 million a year earlier and 37.5 million a decade ago. displaced from their homes.
The increase represents the biggest leap ever seen in a single year. Moreover, the report said the situation was likely to worsen still further.

Globally, one in every 122 humans is now either a refugee, internally displaced, or seeking asylum. If this were the population of a country, it would be the world's 24th biggest.
Refugees boat sinking at Christmas Island
Most of us believe that immigration occurs naturally, that the hordes of immigrants we see today, fleeing unbearable circumstances is the direct result of unfortunate circumstances that haphazardly plague nations around the world.  We conveniently forget the centuries of ravishing and plundering of  these unfortunate nations--rich in natural resources and brimming with economic potential--by colonizing and neo-colonizing powers. 

Australian treatment of refugees
No, not too many of us consider the possibility that the natural flow of immigration has been co-opted by global elites who deliberately create the abominable conditions that force desperate millions (pawns) to cut and run.  Yet despite our nation's wealth created through the plundering of these war-torn nations,  we allow the corporate owned mass media foster and fan the flames of racism and anti-immigrant sentiment without question.

Revoking Passports without Due Process Under the Pretense of Terrorism

In 15 minutes, with virtually no media attention, the House of Representatives passed HR 237, the Foreign Terrorist organization (FTO) Passport Revocation Act, which allows the federal government  the power to arbitrarily strip you of your passport and right to travel without any due process.   Why? Like every "law" that's passed to strip us of our rights: to stop alleged "terrorists". In this case, to keep them from from traveling.

Now, define terrorist. Well,

Are you a conservative, a libertarian, a Christian or a gun owner? Are you opposed to abortion, globalism, Communism, illegal immigration, the United Nations or the New World Order? Do you believe in conspiracy theories, do you believe that we are living in the “end times” or do you ever visit alternative news websites (such as this one)? If you answered yes to any of those questions, you are a “potential terrorist” according to official U.S. government documents. At one time, the term “terrorist” was used very narrowly. The government applied that label to people like Osama bin Laden and other Islamic jihadists. But now the Obama administration is removing all references to Islam from terror training materials, and instead the term “terrorist” is being applied to large groups of American citizens. And if you are a “terrorist”, that means that you have no rights and the government can treat you just like it treats the terrorists that are being held at Guantanamo Bay. So if you belong to a group of people that is now being referred to as “potential terrorists”, please don’t take it as a joke. The first step to persecuting any group of people is to demonize them. And right now large groups of peaceful, law-abiding citizens are being ruthlessly demonized."
In other words, anyone and everyone, no matter how law abiding you think you are,  is a potential terrorist in the U.S. 

The core of the Rule of Law in the United States is that governmental power be bound strictly by law in order to protect individual freedom or liberty.  It is realized through the judicial process. In other words, the Rule of Law holds that powers and rights vest naturally in individuals and that government is limited in its power to infringe upon those rights.

Solving the Brutal Murder of a Prominent Orthopedic Surgeon and World Renowned Expert in Cancer Research

Dr. Mary Stults Sherman and the apartment building she was found murdered
Prominent orthopedic surgeon and world renowned expert in cancer research,  Dr. Mary Sherman (left) was brutally murdered on July 21, 1964 (the same day the Warren Commission started taking testimony on Lee Harvey Oswald’s activities in New Orleans) in her apartment building on St. Charles Avenue, in New Orleans. This 'assassination' remains officially unsolved--maybe because of the memo from J Edgar Hoover telling SAC-NO (Special Agent-in-charge of the New Orleans FBI office) that no active FBI investigation was to be conducted into the Mary Sherman murder--but there are some investigators and authors, in particular, Edward T. Haslam, author of Dr. Mary’s Monkey: How the Unsolved Murder of a Doctor, a Secret Laboratory in New Orleans and Cancer-Causing Monkey Viruses are Linked to Lee Harvey Oswald, the JFK Assassination and Emerging Global Epidemics, and Mary, Ferrie and the Monkey Virus: Story of an Underground Medical Laboratory, who discovered the truth regarding this very strange murder and, believe it or not, the assassination of John F. Kennedy is closely intertwined. 

Dr. Sherman was stabbed in the heart, liver, arm, leg, and stomach, and her right arm and rib cage were completely incinerated, totally disintegrated, yet the hair on her head remained untouched. The incinerated body parts supposedly occurred due to a small mattress fire, but the investigators determined that the massive burns inflicted upon her could not have occurred in her apartment.  Of course, the details of her missing arm and ribs were not released to the public.  Moreover, the wound to the heart hemorrhaged but the wound to the liver did not, indicating that she was alive at the time of the heart wound but already dead by the time the wound to the liver was inflicted.

Who? What? Why?

A little more history on the subject:

Has The Patriot Act Metamorphosed into The Freedom Act?

US Spy Architecture Pared Back as Part of Patriot Act Expires, shouts the Wall Street Journal. The New York Times claims a decade-long shift from focus on national security to a shift on civil liberties in the post Snowden era. Yes, the corporate owned mainstream media is doing its very best to hype the expiration of the Patriot Act while extolling the virtues of its replacement, the USA Freedom Act, in the words of the NY Times:

the strongest demonstration yet of a decade-long shift from a singular focus on national security at the expense of civil liberties to a new balance in the post-Snowden era.
Not so fast!   The spotlight is on one agency, the NSA and one expiring unconstitutional body of legislation, the Patriot Act. when they have all sorts of other ways to collect the same kind of intelligence laid out in the original Patriot Act, when there are countless other, even more powerful agencies than the NSA.  It's what the profit-seeking "news" media, owned and run by a tiny elite, obscures that leads to truth.

The massive US intelligence apparatus (see above) has already figured out how to get what it needs through other means. Broadcasting the curbing of the NSA Surveillance Program just gives we, the people false hope that's something is being done. In fact, under the Freedom Act, the program of domestic mass surveillance will only intensify. The NSA is only one of the alphabet agencies under the umbrella of the colossal Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). 

It's all a game of smoke and mirrors to mask the ever-growing build-up of the surveillance and security industrial complex. This change they're trumpeting is purely cosmetic. It's basically the transference of responsibility for the retention of cell phone metadata from the NSA to telecommunication companies which now require the NSA to get a FISA stamp of approval before obtaining call records.

What about all of the spy planes equipped with technology capable of tracking and reviewing data from tens of thousands of phones in a single flight and provided to the Department of Justice, including agencies such as the FBI, DEA, ATF, etc.? 

From How you can track the FBI’s spy planes
The thing is, when you fly planes in the U.S., you have to fill out lots of official forms that become part of the public record. Because the FBI didn’t want to publicly acknowledge it was sending “spy planes” out to circle American cities (and potentially alert its targets), it created front companies for them. It seems the FBI is uncreative when it comes to spy craft; the fake companies tracked down by the AP and by Wiseman mainly had three-letter names, including FVX Research, KQM Aviation, NBR Aviation and PXW Services. Because flight records in the U.S. are public, and planes are trackable on radar, the AP was able to track down where these planes flew.
Even politicians who speak out against the ever growing surveillance state cannot be trusted. Take Rand Paul who claims victory of the expired Patriot Act "proposed hiring 1,000 new FBI agents to track potential terrorists."

Anyway, what do you need the NSA for when you've got Google and Apple and Amazon and Facebook?

Newsflash: Big corporations and government are in bed together and cozier than ever. They don't even try to hide it anymore, what with Citizens United, huge corporate bailouts,  not to mention corporations actually write the laws that government officials don't even read.   Of course, I could go on forever but that should be enough to make one, at the very least, suspicious.

The program is court-approved but does not require individual warrants. Instead, it operates under a broader authorization from federal judges who oversee the use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). Some documents describing the program were first released by The Washington Post on June 6.

Is Africa Facing a Bigger Threat Than Colonialism?

The impact of the G8 New Alliance For Food Security and Nutrition (New Alliance) does everything but accomplish what its title suggests. If anything, its false, repressive, spurious existence is a threat to food sovereignty and agro-ecology in Africa and elsewhere.  In other words, predatory capitalism under the pretense of  reducing poverty.

Oxfam found that "both the New Alliance and related policy reforms actually risk marginalizing small-scale agriculture, undermining land tenure security, and endangering the right to food of the most vulnerable people."

Simply put, New Alliance's agenda is the corporate takeover of Africa's food. African governments are reforming laws to benefit multinational corporations like Monsanto in return for western aid and investment. Farmers would be restricted from saving and swapping seeds, and many who buy them would end up in debt. Meanwhile, traditional seed varieties could be lost forever. The law actually says "farmers that use seed varieties claimed under new intellectual property rights by individuals and companies anywhere in the world risk hefty fines or even imprisonment."

According to Lauren McCauley,

Under the specious claim of delivering "aid to Africa," western governments are backing an initiative—described by some as another form of "colonialism"—that is effectively enabling the corporate takeover of African nations by some of the world’s biggest food and agriculture companies."
Why do we allow the parasitic wealthy and powerful--those who live off the blood, sweat and tears of others, who talk openly about the horrors of third world overpopulation--free reign to decide what's in the best interest of third world people? They have clearly stated that we must reduce that population.  It's insane! Or, perhaps, most of us agree with these long as it's not us. 
What small scale farmers need is investment in infrastructure that links them more locally and regionally...Where control and ownership over the means of farming, buying and selling food and the culture of food is held by farmers (and people)—not outside elites." -- Dan Iles, food sovereignty campaigner with Global Justice Now

Meet the Should Be Exonerated: Crosley Green

Crosley Green
Something new and different, a Florida man convicted for murder and sentenced to death simply because he was black. As attorney, Keith Harrison said, "an example of race being a substitute for evidence,race substituted for evidence.

For more than 16 years, 48 Hours has investigated the case of the 1989 murder of 22-year old Charles "Chip" Flynn because they believed it involved prosecutorial misconduct, which resulted in the conviction of Crosley Green (left) who was later sentenced to death, an absolute travesty of justice not uncommon as I have documented repeatedly.

It all began on April 4, 1989 when Flynn's former girlfriend, Kimberly Hallock called 911 saying she thought her boyfriend had been shot by a a black man with a gun who had hijacked and drove them to a remote Florida citrus grove. Keep in mind, this black guy would've had to steer and shift gears all while he was holding the gun on them. Oh, and after her ex-boyfriend, with his hands tied behind his back, grabbed a gun and shot the assailant, she alone managed to get back into the truck and escape.

Despite a story that kept changing, littered with troubling inconsistencies:
  • Crosley didn't match the original description of the assailant;
  • ex-girlfriend waiting almost an hour to call for help;
  • a truck that was hard to handle because it had a custom gear shift;
  • shoe prints that did not match...that tracked in different direction than testimony indicated;
  • no gun powder residue on Flynn's hands; no shell casings from Flynn's testified to gunshots;
  • no bare footprints or knee prints of either Flynn and Hallock at scene
  • witnesses who later said they were coerced into testifying recanted their testimony
  • a police dog, despite not having an item of Green's to scent upon, somehow connected him to the crime scene
  • no fingerprints or any physical evidence that linked Green to the crime
  • ten alibi witnesses who place Green miles away from the murder,
Crosley Green was arrested and charged with kidnapping, robbery and murder. It took the all-white jury just three hours to convict Crosley Green; the judge sentenced him death.

Crosley Green, top row center, target with a bull's eye...the black spot you focus on.
That's a target with a bull's-eye for Crosley Green. ...His picture is smaller and darker than the other pictures," Harrison said of the photo lineup. "Anybody involved in police investigation and prosecution knows this. ...the position that your eyes are normally drawn to are right in the middle."

"It's a black spot," Green said of the photo. "That's what you focus on, that black spot." [...]
When I went to homicide school ... they told us that this spot is the most likely that someone will pick a picture from," Mark Rixey said of the photo lineup.

"And where exactly is Crosley Green in that--"

"That's Crosley Green right in that spot," Green said, pointing to the second of three images in the top row.

"Anything that strikes you about this lineup?" Moriarty asked Christopher White.

"You can't see the guy in the top middle very well at all," he replied. "Crosley Green's photo is the darkest."

"If you don't specifically know who you're looking for, then that's the spot you will pick nine times out of 10," said Rixey.
And why was Kim Hallock eliminated as a suspect when it's normal procedure to investigate the last people to see victim alive...everyone closest to the scene? No one knows.
That's homicide 101, anybody who is present at the scene of a shooting ... gets their hands tested for gunshot residue," Rixey explained. "That should have been the very first thing that was done. ...That was never done."
Moreover, the Brevard County State's Attorney's Office had a history of pressuring, coercing witnesses into lying. In the 1980s, Brevard County put away three men whose convictions have since been overturned.
They coerced witnesses ... to lie and it's really as though you see -- a deliberate pattern of the state creating evidence to achieve a result that they wanted to achieve and that's what they got," said Jeane Thomas.
In 2009, Green received a reduced sentence (life in prison)  due to an error in sentencing. In total, Crosley Green has spent almost 26 years incarcerated for a crime he did not commit.  Three witnesses recanted their testimony. 
Every witness recanted their story," Moura explained. "And every one of them had reason to be afraid of the police. ...They were squeezed. ...And they were squeezed hard."
As it stands now, undeterred by exculpatory evidence withheld by the prosecution, the recantations of four of the prosecution's star witnesses, not to mention, more inconsistencies than a government's official story, the Florida Attorney General's Office is fighting to uphold Crosley Green's conviction. It says Green failed to meet a filing deadline for his appeal.

Is ISIS a Tool in a Proxy War? Of Course It Is!

I can't tell you how many times I find myself screaming at the TV/radio, "can't anybody see what these bubbly, manicured, useful idiots are doing here?"  Hello!  The mainstream media is the primary tool of disinformation! It's infotainment, at best. Evil propaganda, at worst. Yet despite the overwhelming evidence of this, people, including most of my friends and family, still believe they're being genuinely informed as they're bombarded by images of brutality deliberately created to induce fear, anger, and aggression against a demonized group. So easily led astray by these pied pipers, when all it would take is a little easily accessible research to discover they're being played for fools. 

How many times has the United States been exposed for coup-making (regime change), and/or covertly funding, supporting and even training both sides in order to keep the wars going and the profits/power/resources rolling in?  Too numerous to mention, so I'll just cite a few:  Iran in 1953;   Iran Contra ; Iraq (funding Saddaam Hussein); Afghanistan (Taliban); Libya.

So, is it any surprise that ISIS, not to mention, al-Qaeda and Boko Haram (Nigeria) is nothing more than a US-NATO  full-scale proxy military force?  I mean, since we, the most powerful nation on earth, started supposedly bombing ISIS, it's been gaining territory and growing stronger!  How in the world do you explain this?  Well, they tell us that they're trying to bomb ISIS but accidentally, of course, they bomb those trying to destroy ISIS.    Really?  No. Bombing ISIS is a pretext to further weaken and destabilize Syria  Obviously, they're targeting civilian neighborhoods and infrastructure.

What is the geopolitical goal here? Well, see Zbigniew Brzezinski's theory of micro states and mini states, for one. He says to break up existing countries, creating war lords, secession, failed states, rump states- the kind that can't stand up to major corporations and banksters, let alone other large and powerful nations. 

For Africa, Brzezinski recommends the so-called ‘micro-nationalities’ concept, which means that national boundaries established in the 19th century should be swept aside in favor of a crazy quilt of petty tribal entities, each one so small that it could not hope to resist even a medium-sized oil multinational” -- Webster Tarpley
You see, by herding these death squads, funded and armed by western powers not to mention, the Saudis, who use the most primitive, gruesome and brutal methods of destruction possible, the United States is able to maintain a veneer of civility.

From recently declassified DIA documents
… there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist Principality in eastern Syria (Hasaka and Der Zor), and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime, which is considered the strategic depth of the Shia expansion (Iraq and Iran).
