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”.

If we don’t want to descend into a stinkin’ fascist state

We better make some better history before it’s all too late!

Now the media manipulators make a false world view!

Make the victims the aggressors! Make the lies seem true!

Making death and destruction from tax dollars spent!

Making ill-begotten profits for the one percent!


Full spectrum dominance is the policy

Making systemic violence and tyranny!

Full spectrum dominance makes us all the enemy!

But a better world is possible! This ain’t the way it has to be!

This ain’t the way it has to be!

Henry Knorr at the open mic during the Q&A session on Feb 16, 2017 in Berkeley

Henry Knorr Defends Alison Weir from JVP Attacks on Voices in the Middle East on KPFA Pacifica Radio. Move the bar forward to the 38:00 minute mark to hear Henry Knorr, who is an American Jewish Bay Area activist against the 6 decade Apartheid Occupation of Palestine. He is also a member of JVP.  He calls it a “demonization campaign” against Alison Weir and IfAmericanKnew dot org. He also admires Alison for “not just talking to the choir”. He is disgusted with the secret dossier compiled on her, and how an umbrella group named The US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation of Palestine was led to expel her due to the slander campaign. The real problem is that she stands against Zionism as a supremacist political ideology. He talks about her book Against Our Better Judgment about the Israel Lobby and how it is based to a large degree on academic histories by Jewish historians, thoroughly documented, “not kooky stuff” he asserts from years of study and activism on his own part. alisonweir-book-cover_alison-speaking

Trump’s “Muslim Ban”Analyzed by Alison Weir, President of the Council for the National Interest

Trump’s “Muslim Ban”: Israeli Strategic Plans to “Remake the Middle East”, from 2001 and before, Targeted the Same Countries by Alison Weir, Founder/Director of IfAmericansKnewOrg, President of the Council for the National Interest, and author of “Against Our Better Judgment”. Posted February 13, 2017.

President Trump has issued an executive order suspending entry to the U.S for people from Iraq, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Iran, and Yemen (the order is called “Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States”). These same countries were the focus of the “Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act of 2015” under President Obama.
 
While reports on Trump’s ban emphasize that these are Muslim majority countries, analysts seem to have ignored another significant characteristic that these countries share.
 
With just a single exception, all of these countries were targeted for attack by certain top U.S. officials in 2001. In fact, that policy had roots that went back to 1996, 1991, 1980, and even the 1950s. Below, we will trace this policy back in time and examine its goals and proponents.
 
The fact is that Trump’s action continues policies influenced by people working on behalf of a foreign country, whose goal has been to destabilize and reshape an entire region. This kind of aggressive interventionism focused on “regime change” launches cascading effects that include escalating violence.

Vic Sadot Releases 4th CD on CD Baby

“Truth Troubadour” is the title of Vic Sadot’s latest CD with 18 songs. Truth Troubadour is the most acoustic and reflective CD of the 4 CD’s that he has posted since first teaming with DiscMakers and CD Baby in 1997. Seventeen of the 18 songs on Truth Troubadour are duos with Vic on guitar and vocals, and some piano accordion on several songs. Eric Golub contributes his formidable talents on various stringed instruments: viola, violin, and 2 ukuleles. It’s a mix of broadside ballads and sweet love songs. Truth Troubadour was published to CD Baby on Dec 2, 2016.

truth-troubadour-cd-vic-sadot-screenshot-front-back-discmakers-onlinedesign300px

The first press announcement was at VicSadot.com calling for reviews!

“Truth Troubadour CD Is Ready For Review!”

Left My Mind is the lead-off song and the only rocker on the CD. Like Lori, a gentle poetic love song, Left My Mind was written by Joe Sadot, who passed in 1978 at age 26. Left My Mind was recorded in Delaware with Rob Sadot, Dean Banks, and Rob Hunter at Rob’s Tune Room Studios. Everything else was recorded at Ancient Owl Audio (formerly Robot Envy Studio) with Sammy Fielding doing all of the sound recording and mixing work in Berkeley, CA. Here we have Rob Sadot recording “Full Spectrum Dominance” in Berkeley.

rob-sadot_full-spectrum-domance_robot-envy-studio_photo-vic-sadot

The 18 songs cover many topics and emotions. The reflective love songs are titled In the Harbor of Love, Lori, and Dearest Lady. The original broadside ballad topical songs are well-researched on timely topics, such as Full Spectrum Dominance, An Act of State: The Execution of Martin Luther King, Selling Futures, Courage To Resist – Free Chelsea Manning, The Kidnapping Coup (Haiti 2004), and No Nuke Blues Fukushima Update.

Full Spectrum Dominance is of those songs that may take on greater significance and meaning as time goes by. The term is used by the US military and political sectors in reference to their goal of global hegemony on land, air, sea, outerspace, and cyberspace.

The line that says, “Beware of those who joke about sending in the drones!” is a reference to President Obama’s joke at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner, May 1, 2010. It was as callous and crude as President Bush’s joke skit at the same dinner during his administration when he was joking about looking for “weapons of mass destruction” in the country he massively destroyed for being under suspicion of having them, Iraq.

Psychopaths in powerful positions seem to not have the empathic abilities that normal people have in society. Michael Moore reported on it here: Obama Jokes About Killing Jonas Brothers With Predator Drones (00:29) mmflint channel“The Jonas Brothers are here. (Applause.) They’re out there somewhere. Sasha and Malia are huge fans. But, boys, don’t get any ideas. (Laughter.) I have two words for you, predator drones. (Laughter) You will never see it coming. (Laughter.) You think I’m joking. (Laughter.)

This song was written by Vic Sadot for the 4-10-11 visit of Bruce Gagnon to speak at Fellowship Hall in Berkeley, CA. Bruce is the founder of the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space. The line-up for this October 2012 session was Vic Sadot on vocals and acoustic guitar, Rob Sadot on electric guitar, and Eric Golub is on violin. “Full Spectrum Dominance makes us all the “enemy”!

Selling Futures (4:32) Vic Sadot & Eric Golub on Truth Troubadour CD at CD Baby YouTube Channel. Published on Dec 11, 2016 – Provided to YouTube by CDBaby.

“We’ve got socialism for the rich; competition for the rest…

 What kind of social system leaves so many dispossessed? …

 If we should ever take it in our hearts to share this great Land of the Free,

 It would be like Woody Guthrie said: This land was made for you and me!”

See Woody Guthrie Center to learn more about his legacy in American folk music.

The Kidnapping Coup is a broadside ballad that tells the story of the US military intervention in Haiti in 2004 to overthrow the elected government of Jean-Bertrand Aristide and the Lavalas Party. He and his wife were actually blindfolded and taken to Africa on a US military jet!

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.”

“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.”

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.”

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!

CNN GREEN PARTY PRESIDENTIAL TOWN HALL [FULL 1:08:00] (8/17/2016) – WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 17, 2016 with Green Party Presidential candidate Jill Stein and VP candidate Ajamu Baraka at GreenPartyVideos YouTube Channel Published on Aug 18, 2016.  

“Jill Stein calls for new investigation into 9/11” (1:00) Newsy YouTube Channel. Published on Sep 10, 2016: Green Party candidate Jill Stein says there should be a new independent investigation into the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Donald Trump, on the other hand, has been shown to possibly be complicit in the cover-up of 9/11 because on 9/11 he, like news anchors Dan Rather and Peter Jennings, Trump stated that only controlled demolitions could have caused the steel-framed World Trade Center Towers to disintegrate in 10 seconds. In the case of building 7, it fell later in the afternoon at free fall speed in 7 seconds. WTC owner, Larry Silverstein, Likud Party leader Netanyahu confidant, said on a PBS show that he and the NYC Fire Chief agreed to “pull it”. Last year Silverstein revealed in a Tel Aviv speech that he had plans to rebuild Building 7 in the year 2000!

Trump saw on 9/11/2001: “bombs were used” on WTC in the planes that hit, according to Trump (3:52) TruthMakesPeace Published on Sept. 16, 2016: “Donald Trump saw the same day that bombs must have been used on the WTC towers on 9/11/2001. He quickly knew that the official Bush Story of 9/11 (BS911) was a lie. From his experience building steel sky scrapers, he knew they were built to be strong, even against a jet. He stated to the reporter that bombs must also have been involved. Donald showed what a nice guy he is, as he called his competitor Larry Silverstein to see if he was ok. He did not suspect Larry let 3000 of his tenants die for over $4 billion from insurance”.

Jill Stein Proved Me Wrong by Kevin Ryan at DigWithin Blog, author of “Another Nineteen: Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects”

kevin-robert-ryan_another-19_book-cover
My last blog post was wrong. As of a week ago, it does matter who is elected president. That’s because one of the candidates has openly called for a new investigation into the crimes of 9/11.

In a recent statement on the subject, Jill Stein made the following important comments and promises:

“The families and friends of those who were murdered on 9/11 deserve justice. They also deserve to know the truth.”

“Under our administration a new inquiry would have access to the considerable body of responsible independent research that has emerged over the last 15 years.”

“We would create an independent 9/11 Commission, not one dominated by members with an interest in protecting the reputation and careers of foreign affairs and intelligence communities.”

“It’s time for a full accounting of what happened, and an end to the misguided post-9/11 wars that are actually making us less safe, not more safe.”

In May, a national poll showed that, “An unprecedented 91 percent of voters 28 or younger favor having an independent on the ballot, and 65 percent of respondents are willing to support a candidate who isn’t Clinton or Trump.”

Meeting Green Party Presidential candidate Jill Stein and talking with her about the Bill of Rights Defense Committee’s campaign to get all 6,700 pages of the US Senate Report on US Torture released. We were at a rally to Save the Berkeley Post Office on June 3, 2016. Everyone wanted a chance to talk with Jill in person, and Jill was very patient with us. She was as good a listener to the people who approached her as she was an articulate speaker at the rally making post 9/11 era “Common Sense”.
