Blog Overview (Permanent Top Post)

This blog explores politics from a liberal/left perspective but also deals heavily with conspiracy theories and various unusual topics. Although I started this blog to research 9/11, my most pressing issue of concern now is anthropogenic climate change.

If you have doubts about the science of climate change, this website is a very useful resource to get educated.

I'm happy to have people comment and contribute ideas here. I don't censor comments except in rare cases where there is abuse or private information. Google/Blogger does sometimes censor comments for reasons I don't understand and I have no control over. Lately, I am not able to even find comments that Google/Blogger has blocked. Sorry about that.

I post kind of irregularly in recent years but I try to keep this site active. Feel free to use the search engine on the side for older content. You can read about the history of this blog here.

I rarely ever check my email for this blog (see sidebar for my address). If you need to contact me, the best bet is to leave a comment. If you need to email me, let me know in a comment that you've emailed me.

Thank you for reading.

Martin Luther King Jr Day

The real Martin Luther King would make white people uncomfortable. 

 

Anyone who knows the unwhitened story of Martin Luther King Jr understands why whitesplaining “what MLK would have wanted” is a favorite pastime of politicians and performative sympathetic social media “allies”. 

 

The average American might get the heebie-jeebies if they knew they were celebrating a radical who challenged systemic racism, supported reparations and advocated for a universal basic income. 

 

For the entirety of the 39 years that King lived and breathed, there wasn’t a single day when the majority of white Americans approved of him.

 

Although, in death, he became one of the most revered figures in US history, for the entirety of the 39 years that King lived and breathed, there wasn’t a single day when the majority of white Americans approved of him. In 1966, Gallup measured his approval rating at 32% positive and 63% negative. That same year, a December Harris poll found that 50% of whites felt King was “hurting the negro cause of civil rights” while only 36% felt he was helping. By the time he died in 1968, three out of four white Americans disapproved of him. In the wake of his assassination, 31% of the country felt that he “brought it on himself”.

 

One does not have to reach back into the historical archives to explain why King was so despised. The sentiments that made him a villain are still prevalent in America today.

 

When he was alive, King was a walking, talking example of everything this country despises about the quest for Black liberation. He railed against police brutality. He reminded the country of its racist past. He scolded the powers that be for income inequality and systemic racism. Not only did he condemn the openly racist opponents of equality, he reminded the legions of whites who were willing to sit idly by while their fellow countrymen were oppressed that they were also oppressors. “He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it,” King said. “He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.”

 

To be fair, King readily admitted that it was his goal to make white people uncomfortable.

 

Just before he condemned white moderates in A Letter from Birmingham Jail, he revealed that his goal was to “create the kind of tension in society that will help men to rise from the dark depths of prejudice and racism”.

 

He went on to explain that nonviolent direct action – King’s primary strategy to affect progress – was an attempt to induce the white community to a point where marginalized people’s desperate cries could no longer be ignored.

 

Yet, this new, more compassionate America is just as intolerant when Black Lives Matter demonstrators flood into the streets to protest police brutality. Of course, if teaching Black history wasn’t criminalized as critical race theory, more people might know that the Selma-to-Montgomery marchers’ original intent was to confront their governor about police brutality – namely the murder of Jimmie Lee Jackson by an Alabama state trooper.

 

The people who believe the NFL should have kicked Colin Kaepernick out of football for his “un-American” protests would have really loathed Roberto Clemente, who convinced his teammates to protest King’s death by refusing to play on Major League Baseball’s opening day in 1968. They were furious when Clemente told his local paper: “If you have to ask Negro players, then we do not have a great country.”

 

King regularly judged white people to explain the insanity of white supremacy.

 

I wonder how Tim Scott and Mitch McConnell would’ve felt about that. After all, they both invoked King’s name while claiming that America is not a racist country. But I’m sure MLK would never go as far as painting his place of birth as a racist country. “The first thing I would like to mention is that there must be a recognition on the part of everybody in this nation that America is still a racist country,” said King days before a white supremacist put a bullet in his face. “Now however unpleasant that sounds, it is the truth. And we will never solve the problem of racism until there is a recognition of the fact that racism still stands at the center of so much of our nation and we must see racism for what it is.”

 

See how many times someone mentions that quote today. Oh, wait … King made that speech at Grosse Pointe High School, where Michigan’s Republican-controlled House of Representatives recently passed an anti-CRT bill making it illegal to teach that the “United States is a fundamentally racist country”. Never mind.

 

That’s why, despite what people who cherry-pick quotes from the I Have a Dream speech would have you believe, King has never suggested that white people should be judged “by the content of their character and not by the color of their skin”. In fact, he regularly judged white people to explain the insanity of white supremacy.

 

“In their relations with Negroes, white people discovered that they had rejected the very center of their own ethical professions,” King wrote in 1956. “They could not face the triumph of their lesser instincts and simultaneously have peace within. And so, to gain it, they rationalized – insisting that the unfortunate Negro, being less than human, deserved and even enjoyed second class status… White men soon came to forget that the Southern social culture and all its institutions had been organized to perpetuate this rationalization. They observed a caste system and quickly were conditioned to believe that its social results, which they had created, actually reflected the Negro’s innate and true nature.”

 

Even as a 17-year-old, King used Georgia’s largest newspaper to make the entire state uncomfortable when he reminded the Atlanta Constitution’s readers: “It is fair to remember that almost the total of race mixture in America has come, not at Negro initiative, but by the acts of those very white men who talk loudest of race purity.”

 

To white America, that Martin Luther King Jr was an America-hating, anti-white commie, just like today’s outspoken Black people who are criticized for “playing” all the things that white America hates: the “race card”, the “victim”, and – my favorite – “identity politics”.

Stewart Rhodes, Leader of the Oathkeepers, Arrested by Federal Agents on Charges of Seditious Conspiracy Against the United States for the Jan 6th Attack on the Capitol

 He actually commented on this blog many years ago, advertising his group. 

 

At the time, I thought the idea of the Oathkeepers seemed OK-- not to obey unlawful order from a president.


Rhodes sure fucked that up.


But his rightwing politics soon became clear. So it was not too surprising when Rhodes turned into a total trump-sucking fascist douchebag.

Interview of a Navajo Policeman and His Paranormal Experiences

 

 

It's also available as a podcast (Podcast UFO Live) if you prefer that medium. I tend to have more time to listen than watch things... 

 

Anyway, overall I thought it was super interesting and if nothing else check out the fascinating discussion of "skinwalkers" and the history of "Skinwalker Ranch" at the end.

Revisiting the 1988 John Carpenter movie "They LIve"-- Glimpses of the Secret PTB

 Just saw this 1988 John Carpenter flick for the first time. It's not a great movie, but it's very well done, very watchable and definitely worth seeing if you haven't.

Great concept of the Hoffman shades-- they allow you to see "reality", all the aliens and their subliminal messages everywhere in the media. And of course the mainstream media and authorities are in on the deception.

a classic line from the main character played by the recently deceased Roddy Piper:

"I came here to chew bubblegum and kick some ass... and I'm all out of bubblegum."

Importantly, the movie hits on a major conspiracy theme: aliens living among us, using us and controlling us.


This early sequence basically tells the story, then I love how the 33's show up on the TVs, in a new scene, right after he tells us about the secret evil PTB (screen shots from the DVD):
















































No, I don't think the two different 33's showing up right after that speech (in the price tags on the TVs he sees) was a coincidence.

The American Precision Bombing and Drone War Was Far Deadlier Than Previously Admitted

 New research shows 

Civilian deaths have been drastically undercounted-- According to the military’s count, 1,417 civilians have died in airstrikes in the campaign against ISIS in Iraq and Syria; since 2018 in Afghanistan, U.S. air operations have killed at least 188 civilians. But The Times found that the civilian death toll was significantly higher. Discrepancies arose in case after case — none more stark than a 2016 bombing in the Syrian hamlet of Tokhar. American Special Operations forces hit what they believed were three ISIS “staging areas,” confident they were killing scores of ISIS fighters. A military investigation concluded that seven to 24 civilians “intermixed with the fighters” might have died. But, The Times found, the targeted buildings were houses where families had sought refuge. More than 120 civilians were killed.


These would be blatant war crimes if done by other countries besides the wealthy industrial countries.

33 of the Day: Earth's Black Box

In a remote part of Australia, a steel vault about the size of a school bus will record the Earth’s warming weather patterns. It will listen to what we say and do. It will create an archive that could be critical to piecing together the missteps, its creators say, should humanity be destroyed by climate change. 
The vault, known as Earth’s Black Box, will be constructed in Tasmania, an Australian island state off the south coast. It will operate much like a plane’s flight recorder, which records an aircraft’s final moments before crashing. But the makers of this new black box — including data researchers from the University of Tasmania, artists and architects — say they hope it won’t have to be opened. 
(snip) 
The vault — a 33-foot-long box made of three-inch thick steel — is not expected to be completed until the middle of next year. But creators say they have already begun to gather information. Eventually, the data will be stored on a giant, automated, solar-powered hard drive with a capacity to collect information for about 50 years.

Dave McGowan's Moondoggie Series on the Apollo Hoax

 I ran across this summary of the articles that I put together a few years ago.

Important point is that his original website was taken down after he died a few years ago and they pieces are now found here. His other writings can be found here.

58 Years After the Kennedy Assassination

Some good excerpts from David Talbot's excellent book "The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of the American Secret Government" are worth reading: here and here and here.

Russ Baker's intro (from 2017):

Exactly 70 years ago today, President Harry S. Truman signed the National Security Act, creating the Department of Defense, the National Security Council, the Joint Chiefs of Staff — and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

Sixteen years later — just one month after the Kennedy assassination — Truman published a bombshell in TheWashington Post: “I have never had any thought that when I set up the CIA that it would be injected into peacetime cloak-and-dagger operations… It has become an operational and at times a policy-making arm of Government… so removed from its intended role that it is being interpreted as a symbol of sinister and mysterious foreign intrigue.”

When it comes to behind-the-scenes intrigue, no one could out-sinister Allen Dulles, director of the CIA from 1953 to 1961. Dulles’s job, simply put, was to hijack the US government — for the benefit of the wealthy.

What he did, and how he did it, has never been more relevant, given the state of the nation in 2017. That’s why we are excerpting some revelatory chapters from David Talbot’s recent Dulles biography, “The Devil’s Chessboard.”

The focus here is on Dulles’s deeply troubling behavior around the time that John F. Kennedy was assassinated.

Although Kennedy had fired him in 1961, Dulles basically kept, de facto, running the CIA anyway. And, even more ominously, after Kennedy was killed in Dallas on Friday, November 22, 1963, Dulles moved into The Farm, a secret CIA facility in Virginia, where he remained for the weekend — during which time the “suspect,” Lee Harvey Oswald, was shot to death in a Dallas police station, and a vast machinery was set in motion to create the “lone gunman” myth that has dominated our history books to the present.

By no coincidence, that same machinery worked to bury evidence that Oswald himself had deep connections into US intelligence.

Throughout all this, one thing is clear: Dulles was no rogue operative. He was serving the interests of America’s corporate and war-making elites. And he went all out.

The “former” CIA director was so determined to control the JFK death-story spin, as Talbot chronicles below, that he even tried to strong-arm former president Truman, when the plain-spoken Missourian dropped hints that an out-of-control CIA might have been involved in Kennedy’s murder.


Some really interesting tidbits in the pieces.


Bottom line is the CIA was heavily involved in both the assassination and the cover-up (DUH!)

I Love Weird Old UFO Cases

 Like these two, interestingly both involving "Men in Black" like encounters--

The Danny Gordon sighting and harassment in Wyethville, VA.


On October 21 (1987), Gordon and a friend, Danny Hall, drove to the area where most of the reported UFOs were said to have been seen, which was south of Wytheville. They had two cameras with them: a 35 mm still camera and a video camera. After seeing nothing unusual during a two-hour skywatch, they headed home at about 8:45 p.m. 

As they were approaching Wytheville on Route 21 South, Gordon, who was driving, spotted something strange off to his left. Gordon pulled over and both men got out of the car. Gordon describes seeing a large craft coming towards him that had no wings, a dome on top, and a multi-colored strobe light on its right side. 

Danny Hall, a former commercial pilot, estimates that it was 1000 feet away from them at an altitude of 1000 feet and that its diameter was at least two football fields. Hall says that there were what looked like three huge picture windows lit from inside on the back of the craft. According to Gordon, a red ball of light approached the craft from the left and “docked with the craft” as the craft disappeared into some clouds. He compares what he witnessed to watching images in a video game. After the craft was out of sight, both men realized that neither one of them had managed to get footage of the object. 

The next night, however, they did manage to get pictures, and with the pictures not yet developed, organized a press conference. The conference was held on October 23, 1987, and Gordon says that during the night before, he received a phone call from someone who told him that the CIA was very interested in the UFOs being reported in Wythe County. He says he continued to receive anonymous calls from people discouraging him from continuing his investigation and telling him it wasn’t his place to be interfering with “defense matters.” 

Gordon reported that his house had been broken into after the press conference and he suspected that someone had been looking for the photos, which when developed, showed indeterminate streaks of light. He then got a chance to take some better pictures on December 2, when he, his wife, and daughter were walking to the family car in a mall parking lot. A large object came into view in front of several witnesses and a school bus full of kids, and Gordon grabbed his camera. According to Gordon, the single object became four “flying disk shapes” that disappeared as soon as they were photographed. Four photos that Gordon presents show four distinct shapes going from teardrop to ball to flying disk to egg-shape. By the end of December there were over 1500 sightings reports. 

Reports include multicolored carousel-like objects and objects that seemed like a cross between a helicopter and a plane with no noise. Gordon says he called the Pentagon and talked with a defense spokesman who told him: “We do not deny UFOs exist. The government confirms they exist, but we deny they pose a threat to the populace of Wythe County.” Gordon says he asked how they knew there was no threat and was told, “I can’t tell you, but there is no threat to you.” 

While it seems the UFOs may not have posed a threat to the general populace of Wythe County, it seems someone posed a threat to Gordon specifically. Gordon reported that on March 18, 1988, as he was preparing to leave for a broadcaster’s conference where he would be speaking about the Wythe County UFOs, he received a phone call from “a retired military intelligence officer.” The man told him that he should tape the conversation they were about to have so that if something were to happen to him, there’d be proof he’d been warned. On a tape provided by Gordon, a man is heard telling Gordon that, because of his own investigations into UFOs, “they” had given his son leukemia, which proved to be fatal. The man said that he had information that the government was not happy with Gordon’s investigation and that they might use “skin contact chemicals” to cause harm to him or his family.


The Johnny Sands close encounter--

(In 1976) Sands left Pahrump (NV) at around 10:00 p.m., and was headed back to Vegas on Blue Diamond Road. At around 10:30 p.m., he noticed an object in the sky about 1000 feet above him that he described as being shaped like a Goodyear™ blimp. He said it was around 60 feet long and had a ring of portal-like windows in the middle that he estimated were ten feet in diameter and five feet apart with a light in the space between them. The object was “rusty brown” and there were flashing red and white lights at each end. 

As Sands drove, the object seemed to be following him. Then his car sputtered, quit, and drifted to a halt. Sands got out and walked to the back where the gas cap was. He removed the cap, shook the car, and determined that he still had gas by its sloshing around. Sands then walked to the front of the car, opened the hood and removed the air filter. 

As he was doing so, he was aware of the object hovering over him. There was a flash of light and then he saw two figures walking towards him. He tried to move but couldn’t and attributed this to either shock or something the creatures might have done to him. 

One of the figures stopped 3 feet in front of him and the other remained 5 feet beyond. Sands described the creatures as wearing black uniforms with silver belts and shoulder straps (colors in artist rendition are reversed according to Sands), that they were 5’7’’ to 5’8” tall, and about 140 pounds. They were pale-skinned, hairless, had small mouths, “flattened” noses, and black eyes with white pupils. Giving them a distinctly non-human appearance were what looked like gills sticking out just above their jawlines. In contrast to their youthful, fit-looking bodies, their faces looked old and Sands got the impression that the beings were between 300 and 400 years old. 

The creature closest to Sands began asking questions, and as it did so, Sands tried to figure out where its voice was coming from because it didn’t move its mouth. The creature asked him what he was doing in the area and Sands answered that he was an entertainer who was in Las Vegas to do a show. The creature asked why there were so many people in Las Vegas, and Sands explained that it was a place where tourists came from all over for entertainment. The creature asked by what means Sands communicated and Sands said he didn’t understand the question. The creature became irritated and said, “Answer the question!” and Sands said again that he didn’t understand. 

The creatures looked at each other for what seemed like two or three minutes and then the creature in front of Sands brushed Sands’s left hand with its left hand and said: “Don’t say anything about this meeting. We know where you are and will see you again.” 

When he got back to Las Vegas, Sands called the police to make a report. The police gave him the phone number for the Air Force Office of Special Investigations at Nellis AFB. He called and was told that the Air Force no longer investigated UFOs and that he should call APRO. Sands did so and spoke with APRO Director Jim Lorenzen, who listened to Sands’s story and put him in touch with APRO Field Investigator John Romero. (snip) 

According to Sands ... he was in a roped off public area at the Sahara hotel, where Romero was the director. Sands was describing the creatures to a sketch artist Romero had brought in and the artist asked why the creatures would have both noses and gills. 

Sands says that at that point two men dressed in “not up-to-date” black suits and with slicked back black hair walked up, and one of them explained that the creatures came from a planet near the “planet” Sirius that was “an aquarimous-type planet.” The planet was very hot, so the creatures lived part time on land, breathing through the nose, and part time underwater, breathing through the gills. The man then said that he had to leave and added “We’ll see you soon.” 

Sands says that he had a friend who was an ex-cop, John, along for protection. John noted that what the man had said was similar to what the creature had said and suggested that the two men should be followed. According to Sands, a security guard walked out behind the men as they left the building and when he came out to an empty street, they were no where to be seen. 

Sands describes being driven back to John’s house, where he was staying, by John, who took a circuitous route to avoid being followed. In spite of this, when they arrived, a black limo pulled up with the two men from the hotel in the back seat and another man driving. The windows on the driver’s side were open and the two men from the hotel leaned out their window, looked at Sands and his friend, and then all the windows were rolled up, and the limo drove off. 

Sands then tells of being contacted by Dave Dunn, who said he was with a production company. Dunn said that he wanted to make a documentary about Sand’s encounter and a meeting was arranged. The APRO report describes what followed as serving to “muddy the waters considerably.” According to Sands, after a week of meetings with Dunn and others in a lavishly furnished apartment, he and John went to a hotel where they were to meet with Dunn and his people to be taken to the site of Sands’s encounter. The parking lot was crowded and they were forced to park far away from the hotel. Just as they were worried about being late for their meeting, a limo that somehow managed to find them pulled up with Dunn and others inside. 

Sands and John were given cocktails as they got into the car and were then driven towards the site. They passed the site and Sands alerted Dunn and the others but no one spoke. The car then did a U-turn and stopped. The men from the “production company” got out, a large number of lights came on, and between 25 and 30 figures dressed in black stepped forward. An argument ensued between the men from the car and someone who seemed to be the leader of the group in the desert, and in the course of it, Sands heard the “leader” say, “He knows too much.” 

Sands went to get out of the car, and he saw what he described as a fuzzy creature like Cousin It from the Addams family. The creature ran at him and he shut the door and went to get out on the other side where another similar creature ran at him, forcing him to stay in the car. Sands and John were then driven back in silence. The next day, they went to the apartment and found that there was no one living in it and that the furniture was gone. According to Sands, there wasn’t enough time for them to have been able to get it out. 

Sands said his friend John was killed during a robbery so this case comes down to whether or not one believes Sands’s story. As strange as his story may seem, APRO reported that Sands did pass a lie detector test arranged for by the organization.
