The American Awakening - Michael Herzog
About Michael
Quote:
In the fall of 2005, growing increasingly skeptical of content being reported via 'Mainstream Media' outlets, Michael Herzog arose from his sofa and walked over to his seldom used computer. Unbeknownst to him at the time, his journey through cyberspace, accompanied by his Private Investigator credentials, would lead down a path to some very disconcerting realities. Over the next few months, he began to uncover, dissect and analyze what would amount to volumes of writings, news articles, books, videos, magazine publications. Cross referencing & verifying some material as well as discounting other, he eventually came to the disturbing conclusion that the American People are not being told the truth about their Government, its agenda, the war effort, the so called 'War on Terror, the 'War on Drugs,' vaccines, pharmaceuticals, the banking system along with scores of other issues that would contribute to deligent Americans making informed decisions.
Good, another american woke up. You see, it doesn't matter how old you are - it's never too late to wake up.

...And 10 years have barely tamped down numerous conspiracy theories, such as one alleging that a controlled demolition brought down the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City. As recently as March 2010, a poll found that 15% of Americans thought this theory was "credible."
Yup, 15% of Americans have managed to find out the truth... despite years of lying by press whores like you.

Yamato started this thread Remember Frank Serpico (portrayed in the movie Serpico by Al Pacino)?

Not surprisingly he agrees with us (intelligent and honest minority) on everything.

We must not blame the laws but rather the improper implementation, interpretation and enforcement of said laws.
How come the press didn't pick this up? It would be nice to read an article or see him on CNN saying what he thinks about 911. I guess he is not credible, because of his past and legendary honesty. He's so honest that he was homeless for a few years.



Watch Serpico online - download Serpico - on 1Channel | LetMeWatchThis

[...]

Actually there is an article on Serpico in 2010 on the New York Times, but they didn't allow him to say what he thinks about 911 and the US government:
http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/24/ny...pico.html?_r=1

Actually they even discredit him in a few paragraphs. Overall it's a crappy article written by an idiot journalist. But it has this nice picture:

Yamato started this thread Been talking to the cabbie on the way to work. I took the opportunity to ask him if he believed that September 11th was really organized by Bin Laden. He fell in that group that does believe it, and he told me that Bin Laden admitted he did it, and why else would he admit it if he hadn't done it? He asked me where I found the evidence to the contrary, and I said on the internet, and he said "internet can't be trusted". All as expected, but I'll keep asking more taxi drivers in the future.

I'm sure if I asked taxi drivers in new york rather than rome, they'd be much wiser.

Richard Gage and ae911truth.org

Yamato started this thread It is fascinating how Richard Gage and his friends are fighting this fight for truth, year after year, and succeeding. These guys have had an impact as important as what Alex Jones has done.

European Tour 2008 Press Release
Quote:
The relevance people feel 9/11 still has on their lives, has increased if anything, and there is no better indicator of this than the prevalence of conspiracy theories, and the ever growing numbers of the population giving them credence. Instrumental to this ground-swell in critical opinion of the official story are the rising number of credible figures supporting them, and there is no better example of this than the coalition Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. The group is comprised of over 500 Architects and Engineers who publicly demand a new investigation into the event. Following highly successful U.S. tours, they are now crossing the Atlantic to tour across Europe, including London, this November.

The group was founded and is led by Richard Gage, AIA, an architect of 20 years who designs steel-framed fire-proofed structures. In his presentation he promises to discuss the shortcomings of the official investigations: suppressed, ignored, and destroyed evidence; faulty computer models; contradictory collapse mechanisms; and implausible assumptions. Ultimately, Gage claims, there is a growing body of evidence to suggest the twin towers and world trade centre seven were brought down through controlled demolition.

Gage's claims and those of the group he is representing on this tour may raise eyebrows and stir tempers, but there is no questioning that these experts in building design are qualified to analyse the building failures, and considering the changes in our way of life 9/11 has been used to justify, it may be time to start at least listening to what they have to say.

"The over 500 A&E's that I represent want to know why the official reports left out all of the crucial scientific forensic evidence of the explosive controlled demolition of all 3 WTC high-rise buildings on 9/11." — Richard Gage, AIA
They even traveled to europe:
European Tour 2008
Quote:
London, 6-11-08
[...]
Of the 250 gracious Brits in attendance, we had 27 believing in the "official story" of the collapses of the Twin Towers (gravitational collapse due to plane impacts and structural weakening from fire) before the presentation and 0 (zero) believing in it afterward! (The truth speaks for itself.) We had 40 who were unsure before hand and just 14 afterward. Not bad numbers...
Quote:
Madrid, 7-11-08
[...]
We had 237 show up. 46 were architects and engineers! Great job Gregg, Eugenio, Diana, Benjamin and the rest of the 9/11 Truth Madrid team!

Before the meeting 16 had indicated that they believed the official story and 79 were unsure. Afterwards 0 (zero – again!) believed the official story and only 11 were unsure. The remainder showed belief in the controlled demolition theory. The numbers are fairly impressive — especially with so many A&E's aboard!
Quote:
Vienna, 8-11-08
[...]
Of the 85 Austrians in attendance, six believed in the "official story" of the WTC Twin Towers "collapses" before the presentation and 38 were unsure. Afterwards only one still believed the official conspiracy theory story and only six were "unsure". Not bad for a lot of first exposures to the complex world of 9/11 Truth. It turns out it is also quite difficult to get decent media exposure in Austria as well as the rest of Europe.

Why do we have to fight an up-hill battle in this world when we have truth on our side. Are our collective societies on this planet so dark? What a wake up call! We have so much work to do. Let's enlighten everyone — no matter how difficult, how much resistance there is, or how long it takes! There is nothing else worth doing more. This is our mission and we accept it.
And the list goes on and on.

THE HYPERREALITY OF A FAILING CORPORATE MEDIA SYSTEM | Project Censored
Quote:
By Andrew Hobbs and Peter Phillips

Hyperreality is the inability to distinguish between what is real and what is not. Corporate media, Fox in particular, offers news that creates a hyperreality of real world problems and issues. Consumers of corporate television news—especially those whose understandings are framed primarily from that medium alone—are embedded in a state of excited delirium and knowinglessness.

Corporate Media hasn’t acted as a cohesive, protective “fourth estate” in several decades, instead gilding lilies such as the Iraq war, torture and the true extent of Hurricane Katrina’s devastation. Contemporary corporate news is best seen in a post-modern context of hyperreality. The news from US networks is based on the presentations of partially factual stories framed inside socio-emotional story lines that juxtapose “evil” with patriotism and Christian fervor. There are multiple examples of this, but we will examine two distinct cases...
INSIDE THE MILITARY MEDIA INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX: IMPACTS ON MOVEMENTS FOR PEACE AND SOCIAL JUSTICE | Project Censored
Quote:
The American people face a serious moral dilemma. Murder and war crimes have been conducted in their name. Yet most Americans have no idea of the magnitude of deaths and tend to believe that they number in the thousands and are primarily Iraqis killing Iraqis. Corporate mainstream media are in large part to blame. The question then becomes how can this mass ignorance and corporate media deception exist in the United States and what impact does this have on peace and social justice movements in the country?[iv]

Truth Emergency and Media Reform

In the United States today, the rift between reality and reporting has peaked. There is no longer a mere credibility gap, but rather a literalTruth Emergency in which the most important information affecting people is concealed from view. Many Americans, relying on the mainstream corporate media, have serious difficulty accessing the truth while still believing that the information they receive is the reality. A Truth Emergency reflects cumulative failures of the fourth estate to act as a truly free press. This truth emergency is seen in inadequate coverage of fraudulent elections, pseudo 9/11 investigations, illegal preemptive wars, torture camps, doctored intelligence, and domestic surveillance. Reliable information on these issues is systematically missing in corporate media outlets, where the vast majority of the American people continue to turn for news and information.
This website says the same things that alex jones and the other fellas say, except in a more technical and cultured language, that's all. It's more argumentative. I like it, but we must not get lost in words. This is a time to act, and probably the best action I have seen so far is those 911 truthers shouting "911 was an inside job!" in the street of new york and the oathkeepers:
Oath Keepers » Blog Archive » Declaration Of Orders We Will Not Obey

This is serious action. These guys are refusing to obey unconstitutional orders in the army. They're risking their lives.

INSIDE THE MILITARY MEDIA INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX: IMPACTS ON MOVEMENTS FOR PEACE AND SOCIAL JUSTICE | Project Censored
Quote:
While most progressive media activists do not believe in some omnipotent conspiracy, an overwhelming portion of NCMR participants do believe the leadership class in the US is dominated by a neo-conservative group of some several hundred people who share a goal of asserting US military power worldwide. This Global Dominance Group (GDM) continues under both Republican and Democratic rule. In cooperation with major military contractors, the corporate media, and conservative foundations, the GDM has become a powerful long-term force in military unilateralism and US political processes.
"NCMR", another good link:
http://conference.freepress.net/blog

This is a good summary of what I think of the situation. I don't believe the reptilians yet. It could be, but I don't have enough evidence. Nor do I believe that freemasons decide everything. But I do believe what is summarized above.

Actually this article is excellent in explaining the relationship between corporate interests and the media, and how this makes it impossible for media to report the truth:
Quote:
A long thread of sociological research documents the existence of a dominant ruling class in the US, which sets policy and determines national political priorities. C. Wright Mills, in his 1956 book The Power Elite, documented how World War II solidified a trinity of power in the US that comprised corporate, military and government elites in a centralized power structure working in unison through “higher circles” of contact and agreement.[vi] This power has grown through the Cold War and, after 9/11, the Global War on Terror.

At present, the global dominance agenda includes penetration into the boardrooms of the corporate media in the US. Only 118 people comprise the membership on the boards of director of the ten big media giants. These 118 individuals in turn sit on the corporate boards of 288 national and international corporations. Four of the top 10 media corporations share board director positions with the major defense contractors including:

William Kennard: New York Times, Carlyle Group

Douglas Warner III, GE (NBC), Bechtel

John Bryson: Disney (ABC), Boeing

Alwyn Lewis: Disney (ABC), Halliburton

Douglas McCorkindale: Gannett, Lockheed-Martin.

Given an interlocked media network of connections with defense and other economic sectors, big media in the United States effectively represent the interests of corporate America.
This article has more interesting things, but I cannot quote the whole thing here (cfr. link at the beginning of this post).

Another good quote:
Quote:
Modern Media Censorship and Propaganda

A broader definition of contemporary censorship needs to include any interference, deliberate or not, with the free flow of vital news information to the public. Modern censorship can be seen as the subtle yet constant and sophisticated manipulation of reality in our mass media outlets. On a daily basis, censorship refers to the intentional non-inclusion of a news story – or piece of a news story – based on anything other than a desire to tell the truth. Such manipulation can take the form of political pressure (from government officials and powerful individuals), economic pressure (from advertisers and funders), and legal pressure (the threat of lawsuits from deep-pocket individuals, corporations, and institutions). or threats to reduce future access to governmental and corporate sources of news.
Then don't forget the fear of being murdered, too. Many journalists have been murdered in the US for telling the truth. Of course, if you go to (CIA's) wikipedia, it says that it was an accident or that they committed suicide, for example by shooting themselves twice in the head:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gary_We...math_and_death
Quote:
On December 10, 2004, he was found dead from two gunshot wounds to the head. Sacramento County coroner Robert Lyons asserts that it was suicide, noting that a suicide note was found at the scene.
More quotes:
Quote:
Following are a few examples of censorship and propaganda.
[...]
1. Omitted or Undercovered Stories- The failure of the corporate media to cover human consequences, like one million , mostly civilian deaths of Iraqis, reduces public response...

2. Repetition of Slogans and Sound Bites- The corporate media in the US present themselves as unbiased and accurate. The New York Times motto of “all the news that’s fit to print” is a clear example, as is CNN’s authoritative “most trusted name in news” and Fox’s mantra of “fair and balanced.” The slogans are examples of what linguist George Lakoff has referred to as framing. Through constant repetition, the metaphors and symbols that pervade our media turn into unquestioned beliefs. Terms like “liberal media,” “welfare cheaters,” “war on terror,” illegal aliens,” “tax burden,” “support our troops,” are all distorted images serving to conceal a transfer of wealth from people needing a safety net to corporations seeking profitable markets and military expansion.

3. Embedded Journalism- The media are increasingly dependent on governmental and corporate sources of news. Maintenance of continuous news shows requires a constant feed and an ever-entertaining supply of stimulating events and breaking news bites. The 24-hour news shows on MSNBC, Fox and CNN maintain constant contact with the White House, Pentagon, and public relations companies representing both government and private corporations.

By the time of the Gulf War in 1991, retired colonels, generals and admirals had become mainstays in network TV studios during wartime. Language such as “collateral damage” and “smart bombs” flowed effortlessly between journalists and military men...

The problem then becomes more complex. What happens to a society that begins to believe such lies as truth? The run up to the 2003 war in Iraq concerning weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) is a case in point. It illustrates the power of propaganda in creating not only public support for an ill-begotten war, but also reduces the possibility of a peace movement, even when fueled by the truth, to stop a war based on falsehoods.
