ANDREW KREIG: At CAPA Forum, JFK Experts See Need, Momentum For Assassination Records

Forum accelerates public awareness of the assassination that changed America  

By Andrew Kreig

Federal Judge John Tunheim, former chair of the Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB), headlined an expert faculty this month in the nation’s capital advocating for compliance with the JFK Assassination Records Act’s deadline of release of President Kennedy’s death records.

John F. Kennedy
The law, approved unanimously by Congress in 1992, mandates the release by Oct. 26 of all U.S. government records related to President Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas on November 22, 1963.

Experts at the March 16 forum at the National Press Club organized by Citizens Against Political Assassinations (CAPA) estimated that some 3,600 documents remain secret, largely because of objections, obstruction or confusion by various agencies. 

Judge Tunheim, now chief federal judge for Minnesota, keynoted a news conference at the forum’s beginning. 

Federal Judge John Tunheim
He outlined the challenges his presidentially appointed commission overcame in reviewing and releasing some four million pages of assassination-related material in the 1990s. See: Transcript of Judge John Tunheim’s Remarks.

The complete conference aside from the opening welcome by this editor is available on a video by independent film maker Randolph Benson, producer/director also The Searchers and a speaker at the forum.

Part I (1:31:44 mins.) is here. That segment showed Forum and CAPA Chairman Dr. Cyril H. Wecht introducing Tunheim, as shown below.

Following that were remarks by historian and author Dr. John M. Newman, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) litigant and journalist Jefferson Morley and his attorney, James H. Lesar, president of the Assassination Archives and Research Center (AARC).

Part II of the Benson film (here, at 1:38:34 mins.) began with “Next Steps in Fact-Finding” by speakers Lawrence Schnapf, a New York-based attorney and co-chair of the CAPA legal committee, and Lesar. The final panel was “Open Government In 2017: Researchers’ Guide To Documents, Witnesses & Freedom of Information.” The session focused on practical solutions to document research on topics beyond JFK research. 

CAPA organized the news conference The American Society of Newspaper Editors (ASNE) and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press (RCFP) founded Sunshine Week to foster open government via events like this throughout the nation. All photos above were by Noel St. John except for the historical photo of President Kennedy.

The Public Enemies Of World Truth

CNN, MSM globalist fake news purveyors will wind up paying the ultimate price for their lies and warmongering propaganda disguised as "news"

By Phil Butler

In this Guardian piece disgruntled Russian journalist and notable Putin hater Alexey Kovalev is a fine example of frog-croaking. 

Most readers of NEO would simply blow off “In Putin’s Russia, the hollowed-out media mirrors the state” as just another fake news bit attacking Putin and Russia. But Kovalev, the former RIA Novosti editor (turned globalist freedom fighter) provides contrast for my story today. In the west the neo-liberal media lambasts Russia and independent media as “propaganda”, when in reality it’s the mainstream that is propagating the lies about Trump, Putin, Le Pen, Farage, or anybody in opposition to a system of control that is, quietly frankly, unbelievable. 

WikiLeaks revelations about massive CIA and intelligence community surveillance scarcely makes headlines in America, but Donald Trump slicing a wedge shot at one of his golf courses is a Russian conspiracy. It’s all sensational, unbelievable, crazy, and scary. 

But the craziness gets even scarier once we see how it’s all planned, rather than simply grass roots activism and idealism.

Manufacturing Fake News

There’s a lot of nonsense floating around about Vladimir Putin having an army of “trolls” doing his messaging. Alexey Kovalev is one of those propagating this message. As one of the world’s best known “Kremlin trolls”, I can absolutely destroy any notion such a paid army even exists. But I can also show you a globalist army that is paid, does exist. 

While RT and Sputnik, and other state funded media do promote a nation’s best side (Germany and the UK included), the real manufacturers of your truth are far more powerful and widespread. Vladimir Putin’s media geniuses, Dmitry Kiselyov and Margarita Simonyan would take over the universe with the budgets of this New Democratic Order. Let me reveal for you one billion dollar arm of this monster – the Knight Center for Specialized Journalism and its offspring.

You never heard of this organization, I’ll bet. Funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and affiliated with the University of Maryland’s Philip Merrill College of Journalism, this organization has a network of vast proportions established mainly thru donations, grants and fellowships in the industry. Like billionaire George Soros’ societal tentacles inside European nations, he creates a breeding ground for the “right” ideas, a path to controlled messaging paved with influence and dollars. At the head of this organization, Alberto Ibargüen is one of the most connected and powerful media persons on Earth – and another somebody I’ll bet you never heard tell of. 

But this story on Inside Philanthropy tells of this influence, and of a Donald Trump enemy far more deadly than a spying Barack Obama. Ibargüen is more or less a Rockefeller captain, an extraordinary media genius who dictates the distribution of hundreds of millions of dollars in grants (over $1.0 billion since 2005). Alberto Ibargüen is Trump enemy number one when it comes to leveraging younger journalists to hate conservatism and love the New Democratic Order. I’ll give you some examples.

MSNBC’s Joy-Ann Reid was a 2003 Knight Center for Specialized Journalism fellow. I made this connection by tracking down NATO trolls who had accused me and other independent journalists of being the world’s worst Kremlin trolls (interestingly). And while I am actually proud of my leading role as Putin praetorian (it tells the right people I’m no sellout), the nasty folks tied to western Fake News should be ashamed. Reid is an unapologetic Obama groupie, a bombastic myna bird set in place at MSNBC just to squawk the part line. She makes some money compiling Obama speeches and selling them on Amazon, and gains neo-liberal following by slamming Melania Trump for a speech goof, Ivanka’s role at the White House, and casts dispersion on Christians who are conservative. She’s a perfect example of this Knight Fund’s underlying intention. But to cement this idea, allow me to quote from David Callahan’s Inside Philanthropy piece on a new initiative by Alberto Ibargüen:

“The new First Amendment effort was launched before Donald Trump won the presidency, and if the next administration does veer in an authoritarian direction, you can see Ibargüen and Knight stepping up with new funding to defend free speech and civil liberties.”

Reid is but one of hundreds of examples, as is the Knight Center’s current boss. In the decades since the fall of the Berlin Wall, these New Democratic Order forces have gone unchecked. We now have a true army of minions, hammering at the foundations of real democracy. The Knight Foundation, Open Societies, the Rockefeller or Ford Foundations, the Clintons or Bill Gates, technocrats running the Washington Post, what you see is a takeover basically, only Donald Trump has made a big deal out of it. And Putin is blamed for St. Petersburg “troll factories” – the idea is ludicrous.

Strange Bedfellows

Ibargüen, the former CEO of PBS, board member at American Airlines, director of AOL and Pepsico, and member of the Council of Foreign Relations is bent on protecting our rights – by investing in cheating us out of them. His most recent tweet about “tyranny” made him think, and it made me think too. “How did I find this guy searching the first follows of globalist/NATO trolls?” – this was my first thought. The answer was a trail of breadcrumbs from a nefarious Twitter operator @SkeddyRuxypin – who it just so happens followed Joy Reid first, and then Newsweek madman Kurt Eichenwald second. I won’t dig further into this “rabbit hole”, but Ruxypin is a NATO troll that recreated an account in 2016. I only include this footnote for the purposes of exposing the real “troll armies” out there. 

Another critical intersect here is one with the founder of Internet Haganah, Aaron Weisburd, who is behind making “lists” of Kremlin sympathizers for the purpose of labeling them “terrorists”. Weisburd is a subject too deeply tied into the NATO troll and Israeli intelligence network to discuss here. I first became familiar with him when I was labeled a Putin Praetorian on one of his charts. The point here is that the Kremlin’s organic support network is miniscule when compared to the forces arrayed against a peaceful order. The networks are established and they sit in direct opposition as in the case of Weisburd following Alexey Kovalev and several hundred others collaborators across real and fake social accounts.

The reader should walk away from this article in a bit of a state of wonderment, actually. Look at the far-fetched nature of all this. If anyone had told me 5 years ago this kind of collusion and polarity were possible, I’d have laughed myself. And it is the “polarization” we see that is the biggest telltale sign our reality is being manufactured – that the one side is demonizing the other more vehemently. How could so many would be advocates (or trolls) come into being over left versus right wing ideals? This is the question everyone should ask. In truly diverse societies (and story lines) myriad perceptions and goals emerge. Not today though. And this is unnatural in the human experience.

The powerful forces behind pushing the world toward a major crisis. I see the “aggressor” in all this as the force making the greatest expenditure, the force waging all its assets for creating some new order of things. And that force is not Vladimir Putin. The list of actors arrayed against is extensive, and includes lesser known moguls like RT and the other media in question have a miracle working for them. The other side has almost all the money and infrastructure – this is undeniable. As more and more revelations come out about potential collusion in between the intelligence community and corporate interests like Google, Apple, Microsoft and others, people need to take the steps to take sides. We are seeing a gravitational pull on humanity – a splitting of everything we were told is true.

America Digs Its Own Afghan Grave

The Afghans have never lost a war in recorded history and will not lose this time around: time to bring our exhausted military personnel home and put an end to this Bush/Obama disaster        

By Paul R. Pillar

Fifteen years and counting. America’s longest war keeps getting longer. 

Bush, Cheney, Obama criminals responsible for each
and every U.S. military death in Iraq and Afghanistan
The very duration of the expedition, with an end no more in sight now than it had been at any of several points one could have chosen over the last several years, ought to indicate the need for a fundamental redirection of policy. And yet there continue to be calls, including from influential members of Congress, to sustain and even enlarge the U.S. military campaign in Afghanistan.

That campaign has now continued under three U.S. presidents, two Afghan presidents, too many U.S. military commanders to count, and a variety of operational strategies associated with the different generals. 

Different levels of U.S. troops also have been tried, with the peak of just over 100,000 American troops reached in 2011.

Something approaching peace and stability will come to Afghanistan the only way it ever has come to Afghanistan in the past: through deals reached among the different factions, power centers, and ethnic groups within Afghanistan. External military intervention does not negate or obviate that process, and instead becomes the object of Afghan resistance to outside interference. It is not for nothing that the place is called the graveyard of empires.

The time has come to investigate, indict and prosecute these mass-murderers of U.S. military personnel

The shape of any deals reached among Afghan factions matters relatively little to the United States. One need make no apologies for borrowing from old speeches in describing the current conflict in Afghanistan as a quarrel in a faraway country between people of whom we know nothing. Unlike the circumstances in which that phrase was first used, there is no hostile and threatening power poised to exploit passivity on our part.

The U.S.-led intervention in Afghanistan in the fall of 2001 was, at that time, a just response to an attack on the U.S. homeland by a group that was enjoying the hospitality of the Afghan Taliban, which constituted the de facto regime ruling most of Afghanistan. One of the fundamental mistakes in how Americans have viewed Afghanistan ever since — in addition to the mistake of treating as an investment the sunk costs, including 2,400 American dead — is to think that the circumstances of 2001 still prevail. They don’t.

The Afghan Taliban never have been interested in international terrorism. Their focus always has been on the social and political structure of Afghanistan. The past alliance with al-Qa’ida was one of convenience, in which the payoff for the Taliban was assistance in prosecuting their civil war against Afghan opponents.

There is nothing special about Afghanistan, distinguishing it from many other strife-ridden places such as Yemen or Somalia, that connects it today with a terrorist threat against U.S. interests. 9/11 itself was the work of Arabs, not Afghans. 

And with the gloves having been taken off after 9/11, the Taliban know, as everyone else does, that if anything at all like the 2001 al-Qa’ida presence were to begin being re-established in Afghanistan, the United States would promptly bomb the heck out of it.

Breeding Terrorism

The United States had an earlier experience injecting armed force into Afghanistan, with its provision of lethal aid — most notably Stinger anti-aircraft missiles — to mujahedin fighting against the Soviets in the 1980s. During that effort, U.S. policymakers showed little or no concern with the political nature and direction of the forces they were aiding, which included what we would today quickly label as violent Islamists. Those forces were used as a tool to bleed the Soviets, who got themselves stuck in a military expedition that reached a strength just slightly bigger (about 115,000 troops) than the later U.S. expedition.

Russians noticed what the United States was doing, and they remember it today. And maybe roles are reversing and the bleeding is coming full circle. U.S. General Curtis Scaparrotti, who is the top NATO commander in Europe, told a Congressional committee this week that Russia appears to be increasing its role in Afghanistan and may be providing material support to the Taliban. The situation is unclear; a spokesman for the Russian foreign ministry strongly denied the accusation, and a careful tally of other relevant Russian interests would not argue in favor of aiding the Taliban.

Nonetheless, it would not be surprising if Moscow — with irony and with what many Russians probably would consider just deserts — took a page from the U.S. playbook of the 1980s. The underlying idea would be that Afghanistan has become for America today what it was for the USSR back then.

American patriots must put an end to this, and prosecute those responsible including the CNN/MSM warmongering frauds and hacks that lied Americans into these disastrous, illegal wars 

The Soviets did get out of the graveyard of empires, even with no more claim to victory than the United States would have today. The last Soviet soldier to leave Afghanistan was the commander, Lieutenant General Boris Gromov, who walked across a bridge spanning the Amu Darya River into Soviet Uzbekistan on Feb. 16, 1989. His departure marked nine years and 50 days since the initial Soviet intervention. The United States exceeded that mark years ago.

Recent TSA Molestation Video Proves Americans Have Become Authority Worshipping Slaves

Americans now consent to molestation of wives and children by TSA criminals and pedophiles, being irradiated, degraded, humiliated  

By Mike Krieger

TSA treating law-abiding American citizens like livestock for the privilege of boarding a plane has been a festering problem for over a decade. 

Such demeaning “security” practices represent just one of many unacceptable privacy invasions we’ve allowed to happen to us as a people since being overwhelmed by irrational fears of terrorism following the attacks of 9/11. 

Such fears are never allowed to dissipate since they’re constantly reinforced and encouraged by corporate media, hack politicians and the military-industrial-intelligence complex looking to make money from imprisoning Americans in an all-encompassing surveillance grid panopticon where we cheer on our own enslavement.

Today’s story brings a very important yet unresolved issue back to the forefront of public discussion, where it must remain until this practice is done away with forever.

The Daily Mail reports:

A furious mom has blasted the TSA officers who she says gave her disabled son an ‘unnecessary’ and ‘horrifying’ pat-down in a Dallas airport on Sunday.

Jennifer Williamson says that her son Aaron, who has sensory processing disorder, was detained for more than an hour at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport despite not setting off the metal detector.

And although she asked the TSA agent not to perform a pat-down, saying it would upset the boy, the agent went through with it anyway.

Williamson then recorded the ‘traumatizing’ incident in a video that has now been seen more than 1.5 million times.

It’s now up to 5.4 million views.

Sometimes the agent appears to pat the boy on areas that he has already checked. 

In a Facebook post, Williamson said that she and Aaron were punished and made to wait ‘well over an hour’ because she asked the TSA agents to respect Aaron’s condition. 

‘We were treated like dogs because I requested they attempt to screen him in other ways per TSA rules,’ she said.

Now watch the video.

Yeah, it’s disgusting, inappropriate and anathema to a free people, but that’s the point. We aren’t a free people. We’ve become a bunch of authority-worshiping subjects toiling on a plantation dominated by multi-national companies who write our laws and manipulate our thoughts through corporate media.

The worst part is we don’t do anything about it. We elect Trump and then puff our chests out yelling stupid slogans like MAGA, as molestations from the TSA get worse.

Well done everyone.

More invasive TSA searches? What exactly am I talking about?

Perhaps you missed the recent Bloomberg article, U.S. Airport Pat-Downs Are About to Get More Invasive.

While few have noticed, U.S. airport security workers long had the option of using five different types of physical pat-downs at the screening line. Now those options have been eliminated and replaced with a single universal approach. This time, you will notice.

The new physical touching—for those selected to have a pat-down—will be be what the federal agency officially describes as a more “comprehensive” physical screening, according to a Transportation Security Administration spokesman.

Anti-TSA activist: TSA Agent Groped My Vagina

Denver International Airport, for example, notified employees and flight crews on Thursday that the “more rigorous” searches “will be more thorough and may involve an officer making more intimate contact than before.”

“I would say people who in the past would have gotten a pat-down that wasn’t involved will notice that the [new] pat-down is more involved,” TSA spokesman Bruce Anderson said Friday. The shift from the previous, risk-based assessment on which pat-down procedure an officer should apply was phased in over the past two weeks after tests at smaller airports, he said.

WHY do Americans continue to allow this?

This from an agency that couldn’t find a bomb if it was placed in its hands. Don’t believe me? Perhaps you missed the following:

Just great. Unfortunately, the move to more invasive pat downs is merely one aspect of a move to even more idiotic security theater when it comes to air travel. Like the banning of electronics larger than a phone on flights from certain airpots, which a former Israeli airport security boss basically called total idiocy.

Finally, while we know the TSA isn’t good at catching terrorists, we do know its agents are very good at theft and sexual perversion. How do we know this? Take a read:

TSA Agent Caught Stealing From Passenger’s Wallet at NYC Airport Checkpoint

TSA has long been a "happy hunting gerund" for pedophiles and molesters of all stripes and predilections 

This is not what freedom looks like.
