Alison Weir was speaking in San Jose while we were doing this livestream. So her presentation for this panel was pre-recorded. Mockingbird 2.0: Propaganda, Fake News, and Censorship panel. Alison Weir’s topic was “How Pro-Israel Thought Police Are Silencing Americans”. http://ifamericaknew.org/about_us/

Alison Weir is a journalist who reports at “If Americans Knew” blog, President of the Council for the National Interest (USA), and author of “Against Our Better Judgment: The Hidden History of How the US was used to create Israel”. http://againstourbetterjudgment.com
The Saturday panel on Palestine was one of the panels censored from participation by the “Left Forum” the week before in NYC. In addition to Alison Weir, the Deep Truth Livestream panel includes Ziyad Shihadah – Being Gazan: Transcending the Psychological Blockade (pre-recorded); Samir Salem – Documenting Gaza: A Visual Catalog of Brutality and Resistance; and Kathy Shihadah – Invisible Blockades: Impediments to Peace in Gaza.

Excerpts from Israel-Palestine News by IfAmericansKnew blog: “The Left Forum, the largest leftist conference in the country, has a history of censoring views they do not support. In 2017, four of our five panels were banned. Our group responded by organizing a highly successful alternative conference we dubbed the “Left Out Forum.” This year, 2018, all of our panels were banned, once again with zero explanation. Refusing to be silent, we created an alternative online conference for the weekend following the Left Forum and called it Deep Truth: Visionaries Speak Out…

Despite last year’s challenges, we were hopeful and confident that the Left Forum would accept our panels this year in light of their 2018 Left Forum theme, “Towards a New Strategy for the Left.” Their theme proclaimed: “Unity allows for differences and embraces other voices—it does not squelch them. We do not have to block dissent and critical self-analysis.” In January, 2018, we wrote the Board to say we were delighted with their theme and hoped to work with them this year, but given the difficulties we had the year before, we requested they guarantee us that if they approved our panels, they would not renege and censor them. We were answered with silence.”

Screenshot of Suzie Dawson of wikileaks, speaking as part of the Mockingbird 2.0: Propaganda, Fake News, and Censorship panel. Her topic was titled “Julian Assange: Censored to Death?” Much of the discussion was about Assange’s history and current status, about his position as a journalist, and what she has learned as a wikileaks insider. The moderator Tom Kiely posed one tough question about a comment by Julian Assage where he said he found 9/11 conspiracy theorists to be “annoying”. She seemed unaware of the comment by Assange. She claimed that there was a lot of 9/11 related revelations posted at wikileaks website. It seemed to be a fair discussion of legitimate concerns. 9/11 Truth activists will be sure to follow her advice and go to see what’s actually posted at wikileaks about the crimes of 9/11 and the Anthrax Attacks, and how they were used as traumatic conditioning of the public and as a “Deep State” policy coup on the US political policies at home and abroad.

Screenshot of Vic Sadot, organizer of the Berkeley No Lies Radio Livestream Listening Room, asking a question that challenges the Truth Movement to get involved in demanding the release of the 6,700 pages of the 2014 Senate Report on CIA Torture. In December 2016 President Obama classified the Torture Report top secret for another 12 years. Thus Obama made the actual report unavailable to the public that paid for the report, and delaying or burying all prospects for prosecutions and the legal discovery process. The public only got a 500 page summary of the Senate Torture Report, which discredited the US image and integrity globally since there is no attempt to get right with international treaties against torture to which the USA is a signatory.

Here is an excellent review of the 500 page summary of the Senate Report on US Torture released to the Public by the Senate Intelligence Committee in December 2014: Torture Architect Tries to Justify Program … Fails Miserably By Washington’s Blog Global Research, December 16, 2014 http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/12/torture-911-evil-last-13-years.html

Join the BORDC campaign! The Bill of Rights Defense Committee: Will the Senate Torture Report Disappear? May 2, 2016 by Chip Gibbons. We demand the release of all 6,700 pages of the US Senate Report on the US Use of Torture! 

This “Deep State” illegality of torture was green-lighted for continuation by the Obama regime’s complicity in the cover-up and refusal to prosecute what is clearly illegal in US and international law. So Trump appointed torture advocates to the State Dept and the CIA and got enough “bi-partisan” support from both of the pro-war corporate monopolization parties to get the criminals appointed in 2018.

Panelist Ray McGovern was roughed up by Capitol Police for shouting out questions that the Congressional Panel refused to ask of President Trump’s nominee CIA nominee Gina Haspel, who had operated a secret torture site in Thailand and had a role in destroying the video evidence of the torture sessions.

Vic cited the 2013 documentary by Adnan Zuberi, “9/11 in the Academic Community”, and the two professors quoted in the trailer for the film to present a question about why the US Truth Movement has not prioritized the issue of “Torture Accountability” while instead spending enormous amounts of time and energy trying to get some “classified” 28 pages from a long discredited 2002 Joint Congressional Inquiry Report on 9/11 that served as the first official cover-up of the crimes of 9/11 and the subsequent Anthrax attacks on the US Congress itself.

Professor Michael Truscello of Mount Royal University states: “25% of the footnotes in the 9/11 Commission Report are based on torture testimony.” Professor Graeme MacQueen of McMaster University, author of “The 2001 Anthrax Deception: The Case for Domestic Conspiracy”, says, “They made it (torture) the core of their story and they d
on’t discuss that these guys were tortured.”

The opening panel session is titled the “Mockingbird 2.0: Propaganda, Fake News, and Censorship”. Mark did a great job at kicking off the weekend and opening the Deep Truth Visionaries Speak Out Livestream Conference. His topic was “The Silence of the Left” and it was a remarkable historical review replete with examples of media manipulation resulting in alarming losses of liberty and civility in our society of perpetual “war on terror”.

How to UNITE FOR OUR RIGHTS!

Right here at the beginning of the Puppet Trump Administration All Trump supporters should test Trump’s loyalty to them. Let me explain how to do it. It’s called UNITE FOR OUR RIGHTS!

The Trumpeteers really need to demand that our Bill of Rights be restored, that all Anti-Constitutional martial law powers passed by Puppet Obama to Puppet Trump be rescinded by President Trump now! They should abandon the Trump regime and all other traitors to the Constitution of the United States if they do not act immediately and decisively to restore the Republic and the Constitution of the United States. Puppet Prez Obama has passed on some draconian legal claims to Puppet Prez Trump. This is a review of several specific violations done in the name of “security”. We must UNITE FOR OUR RIGHTS!

Listen to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr!  “Obama Creates Propaganda Ministry; Now Trump Owns It” (7:21) The Ring of Fire hosted by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
trump-obama_la-times-crop_20161110

Note Published with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. video on Jan 27, 2017: “Just before the Christmas holiday, former President Obama signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act which provides funding for the military. Buried inside the NDAA was another bill that officially establishes an anti-propaganda center in order for the State Department to recognize, understand and expose counter foreign state and non-state propaganda and disinformation efforts aimed at undermining the United States. They really said that. Mike Papantonio, host of America’s Lawyer, discusses this with Richard Eskow, host of The Zero Hour.”

Similarly, all of us American citizens should exercise our inalienable rights to voice our grievance against Puppet President Obama for signing police state laws in bills that should only be about monetary matters. They should not include clauses that claim Executive powers to use the U.S. military for imprisonment called indefinite detentions (BORDC) and executions of American citizens without any due process.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. mentions how Obama earlier, with the sweep of a pen, signed an NDAA that repealed the 1949 Smith-Mundt Act that forbade the US government to use psychological operations and propaganda on the American People.

The Two War Parties need to start taking orders from the American People! Break out of the Two Party Matrix Mind Trap! UNITE FOR OUR RIGHTS! Defend EVERYONE’S RIGHTS! Or lose them… For more specific information and videos about the deliberate misuse of the annual NDAA military funding bills to claim Anti-Constitutional powers, and to join efforts with other people who are working to reject and rescind such illegal power claims, visit BORDC (The Bill of Rights Defense Committee)!

Did Michael Hasting die trying to warn you about your loss of your rights through NDAA clauses in the annual military budget bill? That’s an odd way to pass Unconstitutional “laws”! See: “Domestic Propaganda Ban to be Lifted?” (9:32) Published on May 24, 2012 at The Alyona Show on RT. “Last week, the House passed the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act, which contains an amendment that would repeal the Smith-Mundt Act: a 1948 law that prevents the U.S. government from distributing propaganda at home. Alyona discusses the proposed provision with Michael Hastings, who broke the story. What is the significance of the amendment when the line between propaganda, and public relations has become increasingly blurred?” Hastings died in a bizarre car crash in California before he got to publish more exposes.

Amazon has this about the new book:

MARTIN LUTHER KING SURVIVED SHOOTING, WAS MURDERED IN HOSPITAL: AN INTERVIEW WITH WILLIAM PEPPER

Bestselling author, James Earl Ray’s defense attorney, and, later, lawyer for the King family William Pepper reveals who actually killed MLK. 

William Pepper was James Earl Ray’s lawyer in the trial for the murder of Martin Luther King Jr., and even after Ray’s conviction and death, Pepper continues to adamantly argue Ray’s innocence. This myth-shattering exposé is a revised, updated, and heavily expanded volume of Pepper’s original bestselling and critically acclaimed book Orders to Kill, with twenty-six years of additional research included. The result reveals dramatic new details of the night of the murder, the trial, and why Ray was chosen to take the fall for an evil conspiracy—a government-sanctioned assassination of our nation’s greatest leader. The plan, according to Pepper, was for a team of United States Army Special Forces snipers to kill King, but just as they were taking aim, a backup civilian assassin pulled the trigger.

In The Plot to Kill King, Pepper shares the evidence and testimonies that prove that Ray was a fall guy chosen by those who viewed King as a dangerous revolutionary. His findings make the book one of the most important of our time—the uncensored story of the murder of an American hero that contains disturbing revelations about the obscure inner-workings of our government and how it continues, even today, to obscure the truth.

John Lennon Birthday Speakout Against Facebook Censorship Livestream Video

“Imagine A Day Without Censorship” Speakout At Facebook Zuckerberg’s SF Mansion (41:16) Labor Video YouTube Channel

Labor Video Labor Video John Lennon Birthday SpeakoutPublished Note on Oct 11, 2016: On John Lennon’s birthday October 9, 2016, a rally sponsored by LaborNet.org was held outside the San Francisco mansion of billionaire Mark Zuckerberg the owner of Facebook to protest the censorship and privatization of the internet. Participants discussed Zuckerberg’s agreement with the apartheid Israeli government and Netanyahu to censor the internet with critical content of the Israeli government. Facebook is also censoring live streaming from Standing Rock Native American pipeline protesters and Kurdish activists. * See the list of links documenting the citations of censorship or spying provided in the description box for this video.

Amidst the general call for the creation of a Commons Free Speech Public Space on the Internet, there were those who stepped forth to voice more specific charges of censorship at the John Lennon’s Birthday Speak Out Against Facebook Censorship on Sunday, Oct 9, 2016 outside a Zuckerberg mansion in San Francisco, CA. ILM is the “International Labor Media” channel.

Steve Zeltzer at one of the Zuckerberg Bay Area mansions at the John Lennon’s Birthday Speakout Against Facebook Censorship on Oct 9, 2016 in San Francisco, California.

Steve Zeltzer of Labor Video says (4:28 – 4:58) that Zuckerberg’s “power over over a billion people who are now on Facebook is being used to control political debate and dissent. We believe that this is wrong. In fact, he met with Prime Minister Netanyahu and signed an agreement saying that he would work with the Israeli government to censor critical comments against the Apartheid regime of Israel, of the Zionist regime. If Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg want to be political appendages of the  Israeli government, that  obviously their choice. But they will have to pay politically for that, and everyone needs to know what they are doing.”

facebook-privacy413x310

“The other thing is the issue of spying because people who use Facebook put their personal names, their personal information on Facebook and he has access to it, which means the US government has access to it. So people have to be aware of that.” Zeltzer describes the global reach of Zuckerberg using Brazil as an example. He purchased the domain name “internet.com”. Tech barons want the internet to be privately owned explains Steve Zeltzer. “We need municipal WiFi free public internet.

Zeltzer refers to John Lennon’s Birthday in saying, “Imagine a day without censorship! Imagine a world without censorship!” (10:05 – 10:45)  “What the supporters of Zionism and the Apartheid regime in Israel want to do is they want to pass laws in the United States saying that you cannot boycott Israel because that’s ‘anti-Semitism’… Now this is a canard that is used against people to basically accuse people who are critical of the policies of Israel of being anti-Semitic. And this is a very reactionary dangerous kind of position. So, in New York Gov. Cuomo passed such a resolution. In California Gov. Brown signed such a resolution. We’re saying this is outrageous! People have the right to boycott.”

woman-speaker_ilm-live-stream-facebook-censorship_johnlennonb-dayspeakout_10-09-16_berkeley-calling-blog_gimmesometruth_vicsadot-screenshot

A woman speaks (12:50 – 13:08), “If we were to look at the history of Boycotting, Sanctions, Divestment movement within the U.S., it was successfully used to bring down the Apartheid South African regime. So at that time was that equated with being anti-White or Anti-Dutch?” She also cites Facebook for not allowing a livestream of the arrests at the Native American resistance at Standing Rock to protect their water rights against the proposed Dakota Access Oil Pipeline across their land. This woman speaker also cites the experience of having Green Party Jill Stein posts banned from being posted on Facebook. (This happened to me while trying to post to Facebook groups in which I am a member! VRS) The Woman’s Free Gaza Flotilla to end the blockade of Gaza was intercepted illegally in international waters, but that has been blocked out of the American corporate-government press, not just on Facebook.

The next speaker, the man with the “From Vietnam to Palestine Facebook/Zuckerberg Censoring History” sign, (21:18 -32:22) was concerned with how private property ownership of public forums like Facebook is part of the general elimination of the public common space for public expression. He focused on the recent role of Facebook in Turkey during an attempted coup where suppression of freedom of speech was openly done in the name of restoring order with emergency decrees. Journalists were beaten by police and dragged by the hair to jail when TV stations were shut down without any news coverage by the compliant complicit western media. Facebook “respects” the Turkish Anti-Terrorism Law, “which in Turkey it means that if you show the army killing civilians, that’s a terrorist act… Facebook goes along with this and shuts down the pages. As we have seen, in the last 10 days when Palestinian journalists try to show their opinion immediately Facebook has stepped in and shut it down.”

facebook-censor-1024x535
Steve Zeltzer comes back into the soundtrack around 39:33 to sum up the censorship  situation. Zuckerberg’s support for attacks on public education and on teachers’ unions reveals his ruling class politics. The people want genuine democracy, not the private ownership and public censorship and spying that we are getting on Facebook!
