November 22, 1963 -- The Day Fascism Came to America



Oliver Stone's depiction above comes amazingly close to the most recent archival research, summarized by David Talbut in his 2007 book, Brothers: The Hidden History of the Kennedy Years. Brothers does not go nearly as far as Stone was willing to go in asserting as strongly that the Military Industrial Complex, LBJ, and the top military brass were responsible for Kennedy's demise due to Kennedy's secret plan to withdraw from Vietnam and secure a peace with Cuba, but Kennedy's attempts to end the cold war, including withdrawing from Vietnam and coming to terms with Castro were certainly floated as strongly indicated central motives driving the conspiracy -- yes, the conspiracy.

Late President Gerald Ford's forthcoming book will assert that Oswald acted alone. This assertion has become the sound-bite of the "lone assassin theory" that continues to function as a disingenuous defense of the Bush Family, Nixon, LBJ, the Joint Chiefs, Allen Dulles (And the Warren Commission Cover-up of which Ford was a part), and the Mafia bosses who are currently taking the fall based on available documents released by the Kennedy archives.

George Bush, Dick Cheney and the Zionist Neocons now represent the multigenerational force of fascism (I do not use the word lightly) that currently holds the reins of power over a Corporatist style of government that replicates the models of WWII Germany and Italy.

For an impressive MUST HEAR review of the 1963 U.S. Corporatist-Military Coup that carried out the JFK Assassination, why it was of done on behalf of the Military Industrial Complex and its effects on The Vietnam War, the Cold War, the Gulf War and the current war in Iraq, as well as the coming war against Iran and Syria followed by an American takeover of the entire region around the Caspian Sea, listen to the KPFA-Pacifica Radio interview of researcher John Judge by Guns & Butter radio journalist Bonnie Faulkner, The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy, Part I and Part II.

To the Memory of John Fitzgerald Kennedy -- may he rest in peace.

Thanksgiving Message to Aliens

Arecibo Message to Aliens - 1974

The image on the left, actually in binary code, is the translation of a radio message that was beamed into space in 1974 on the occasion of the completed remodeling of the Arecibo Radio Telescope [see complete article].

It includes basic DNA information including the average human shape and height along with world population -- a simple greeting that will not be returned for 50,000 years due to the 25,000 light year distance between earth and the intended target, a globular star cluster within the Constellation Hercules. Of course, by then there won't be anyone left on this planet.

Hopefully, like the New World in which the original Thanksgiving was celebrated, we will have moved to a cooler planet, like the one of the original garden in which Adam and Eve were placed before their descendants messed it up. Such are the perils derived from snacking at the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil

Now, if there's a lesson in this for aliens -- assuming that before they figure out and answer our binary DaVinci Code-like missive they will have stumbled upon a history of the first Thanksgiving event and realized that Native Americans were soon to be treated to an after dinner morality play, fashioned just for them by the Pilgrims of European Puritanism -- it is that messages from Earth sometimes are really just phishing spam.

My Generation

The day before Veterans Day is a good day to recall the struggles we endured in our youth in order that holidays like Veterans Day not be exploited by the SuperPatriots of today who think it honorable to die for "God & Country" without even a passing thought to what "country" means, who it benefits or what might even be "God's Will" in these times of crony capitalism where the blood of our children is abused to build an oil empire that benefits liars, war mongers, chicken hawks, faux-Christians and their pandering Zealots, super-wealthy corporatists, plutocrats and their financiers on Wall Street.

Indeed, have generations of veterans given their lives so that "our generation" can live under The Patriot Act, an act that attempts in insure an American Police State and the unfettered freedom of corporatists to exploit the world in the name of the Almighty Dollar? Keep your eye on Cheney and his neocons. It ain't over till the fat lady sings.
