Mockingbird 2.0: Propaganda, Fake News, Fake History, and Outright Censorship
Moderator - Tom Kiely
Mark Crispin Miller – The Silence of the Left
2:40 - 39:25 (YouTube)
Starting in 1967, the CIA made the epithet "conspiracy theorist" a powerful synonym for "lunatic"—an effort that the Agency began in order to discredit some best-selling critics of the Warren Report. That propaganda effort never stopped. To this day, the CIA continues to deploy its journalistic assets to discredit as "conspiracy theorists" all who dared to question the official narratives of the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy, Iran/contra and the October Surprise, TWA Flight 800, 9/11, Bush/Cheney's election theft, and all too many other major crimes against American democracy. This propaganda drive has been enormously successful, silencing not just the watchdogs of the corporate press, both "liberal" and "conservative," but, no less, the leftist press, including luminaries like Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, and Amy Goodman. We need to understand how this occurred, and to confront its catastrophic consequences, as a necessary first step toward reversing them.
Ray McGovern – Russiagate: How It Started, Morphed, and Now Threatens Us All
40:48 - 1:13:22 (YouTube)
CAUTION: COGNITIVE DISSONANCE may be in store for New York Times readers who think they know what's going on. There WAS interference in the 2016 election, but it's not what you think. Top officials of the Justice Department, FBI, and CIA played fast and loose with the law to buy Hillary Clinton some extra "insurance." The House Intelligence Committee now has most of the "insurance documents" so to speak, and a Constitutional crisis is brewing. Renown ex-CIA analyst Ray McGovern will further examine how Russian President Vladimir Putin views the implications for Russia.
Gerry Docherty – How History Gets Memory-Holed: An Eye-Opening Case Study
1:14:50 - 1:43:30 (YouTube)
Gerry Docherty (with co-author Jim MacGregor) wrote two scrupulously-researched, compelling accounts of WWI entitled Hidden History: The Secret Origins of the First World War and Prolonging the Agony: How the Anglo-American Establishment Deliberately Extended WWI by Three-and-a-Half Years. In complete contrast to what we’ve been taught, their astonishing findings report how a British “Secret Elite” planned and prolonged WWI. Their books provide vivid analogous proof as to how official historical records today are likewise withheld for “national security," tampered with, and even destroyed. Gerry will also talk about how their books have been deliberately marginalized by their first publisher, the academic press, and mainstream book reviews in an effort to control mass perception of reality. Through frequent, meticulous micro-management, the Deep State proactively creates, monitors, and fakes not just news, but actual history. Bravo to Gerry's new publisher, TrineDay, a small publishing house committed to producing books that challenge official history.
Alison Weir – How Pro-Israel Thought Police Are Silencing Americans
1:44:40 - 2:19:35 (YouTube)
Alison Weir will report on the ways in which the Israel lobby is undermining the First Amendment in the U.S. through the internet as well as through changing the definition of antisemitism and codifying it in various laws and regulations. Examples of Israel's internet manipulation include paid trolls, infiltration of Wikipedia, anti-BDS smartphone apps, YouTube video blocking, "Facebook jail," Unit 8200 (a massive, covert, high-tech global spy network), and the ADL's notorious command center in Silicon Valley ostensibly built to combat online "hate speech." Alison will also discuss the new Israel-centric definition of antisemitism first formulated by an Israeli official that has been making its way into diverse countries and international entities, including the U.S. State Department, state legislatures, and American campuses.
Suzie Dawson – Julian Assange: Censored to Death?
2:20:45 - 3:01:35 (YouTube)
Julian Assange, arguably the most significant publisher of the new millennium, sits silenced in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London in which he has been arbitrarily detained for more than seven years. The mainstream media alternate between ignoring his plight or actively defaming him, colluding with anonymous intelligence sources to degrade his public reputation. WikiLeaks is a household name, but the seriousness of Julian Assange's physical condition has been understated. Beset with acute medical conditions yet denied access to healthcare facilities by the UK government, if we collectively fail to mobilize in support of his human rights, it could come at the ultimate price: his death. Author of Being Julian Assange, journalist Suzie Dawson will discuss Julian's situation in intimate detail, examining what lies beneath the headlines and what we of good conscience need to do to save a man who has helped to expose so many critical truths to the global public.
Dean Henderson – All Roads Lead to the City of London
:55 - 31:35 (YouTube)
The City of London Corporation is a separate jurisdiction from both London and the UK. Within its square mile, you will find every bank of any significance in the world. Even the Queen must ask permission and bow to the City's Mayor to enter. It was established in the 11th Century when the wealth of the Roman Empire was relocated to a safer island location. The City's offshore banking network helps the global oligarchy avoid taxation and moves their dirty money derived from drugs, arms, oil, and terror financing.
Jonathan Revusky – Reality vs. Simulation: Deconstructing "Roger Rabbit" Narratives
34:00 - 1:08:25 (YouTube)
Jonathan Revusky presents a unique take on propaganda, analyzing it as a form of fantastical storytelling. A key concept he has developed is that of the “Roger Rabbit narrative” based on the movie “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” in which cartoon characters and human actors share the screen in a seamless fashion. For Revusky, the propaganda matrix weaving through people’s minds creates a Roger Rabbit mental world in which real people and real objects are entangled with synthetic, cartoonish constructs. While refreshing and entertaining, Jonathan’s innovative framing actually offers effective insights for how humanity can counter the omnipresence of propaganda.
Jeremy Rothe-Kushel – We the People Power Politics: Principles, Practices, and Proposals
1:08:55 - 1:41:00 (YouTube)
In a time of compounding, mortal threats to humanity from Deep State deceptions, technological tyranny, and synthetic transnational terrorism, we can strategize and politically proceed in fresh, clarifying, decisive ways -- ways that can help us heal our body politic from bottom to top, inside to out. Using ideas such as The Hierarchy of Sovereignty, Full Spectrum Principled Populism, Integral Permacultural Politics, Townhall Assembly Culture, We the People’s Platform (scalable), A Transpartisan Alliance for Real Elections, Independent Official Write-In Candidacies, Coalition Cabinets, and Cooperative Technology Creation Consortiums, Jeremy Rothe-Kushel will introduce affirmative proposals we can all act on.
Barbara Honegger – 9/11: Gladio Brought Home to the U.S.
3:05 - 38:05 (YouTube)
Former White House and Department of Justice Official Barbara Honegger, M.S., presents 'The Burning Facts' that prove the Official Conspiracy Theories of what happened at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and Shanksville, Pennsylvania, on 9/11 are not only false but absurd. The presentation includes the compelling evidence that the real story of September 11th is a treasonous inside operation scripted and overseen by the Pentagon Gladio liaison office that perpetrated the mass false flag terrorist attacks against innocent European citizens during the Cold War to discredit the Left.
Michael Springmann – Weaponized Migration: Fueling Europe for False Flags
39:20 - 1:11:00 (YouTube)
The United States and its confederates have destabilized and/or destroyed most of the countries in South and Southwest Asia and North Africa. Having dehoused substantial portions of their populations, America and its co-conspirators have long been pushing these people into Europe. The result, with German Chancellor Angela Merkel's help, is chaos: racial and religious hatred, along with anti-democratic attacks on anyone or any group that questions migrant policy.
Ole Dammegard – Find the Clues and Connect the Dots
1:11:55 - 1:45:35 (YouTube)
Master detective Ole Dammegard deconstructs some of the premier false flags of our era. It turns out that the perpetrators behind many false flag operations are actually hiding clues about their upcoming attacks. In the forensic evidence. Hidden in plain sight.
Kevin Barrett – Guyénot on False Flags: Zionism, Psychopathy, and the Hijacked Provocation
1:48:10 - 2:14:10 (YouTube)
In books and articles published during the past few years, French historian Laurent Guyénot has made several important contributions to the study of false flag events. Dr. Barrett's presentation will summarize those contributions, including the “family resemblance” between the JFK assassination and 9/11, the role of Zionism, and the theory of the “hijacked provocation” in which one intelligence agency infiltrates, amplifies, and turns to its own purposes another agency’s false flag operation.
Alison Weir – A Prequel Appraisal: My 2001 Visit to Gaza
1:35 - 27:00 (YouTube)
Citing censorship and the “new antisemitism,” Alison Weir will first provide an overview as to why this particular panel on Gaza was recently banned by the annual Left Forum Conference while several others were allowed to proceed. Alison will then take us on a journey with her back to 2001 when she traveled solo to Gaza to investigate for herself the state of affairs she sensed the U.S. media was not telling us. While today’s reporting on Gaza is often absorbed with Hamas and rockets, Alison can attest to the fact that the living conditions in the Gaza Strip remain the same. What she witnessed over 15 years ago was but a preview to come of the brutal, harsh treatment of the people of Gaza . . . and their indomitable spirit to survive.
Ziyad Shihadah – Being Gazan: Transcending the Psychological Blockade
28:25 - 55:00 (YouTube)
Born in a refugee camp in the Gaza Strip, Ziyad’s own family story illustrates the deprivations of social displacement. Dispossessed, Gazans endure the ignominy of economic and psychological oppression. While there are many individuals such as Ziyad who have achieved success, as a people Gazans are perennially discredited, marginalized, and misrepresented by stereotypes such as "Hamas followers." In spite of desperate circumstances, Gazans continue their resistance (or peaceful resistance) in the Great March of Return and other acts of unparalleled bravery, determination, and inspiration.
Samir Salem – Documenting Gaza: A Visual Catalog of Brutality and Resistance
56:10 - 1:24:25 (YouTube)
Samir Salem, an award-winning activist filmmaker, will present original videos created primarily for the organization If Americans Knew. His first video is a timeline of the history of Gaza, presenting viewers with a documentation of incremental genocide. Other videos demonstrate the blockade and siege of Gaza, or focus on the lives of children and disabled people who were killed by Israeli forces. Samir shares some on-the-ground footage of the Great March of Return, and ends with a message from Gazan youth who describe their struggle to survive the unimaginable hell known as the Israeli Occupation.
Kathy Shihadah – Invisible Blockades: Impediments to Peace in Gaza
1:25:25 - 1:55:00 (YouTube)
The ten-year siege of Gaza by Israel constitutes a visible blockade, most dramatically evidenced by the withholding of food as the population is slowly and cruelly starved. The planned scarcity of medicine, electricity, and fresh water is likewise visibly inhumane. There are actually, however, a multitude of attendant invisible blockades, existing in varying degrees of mendacity, barbarity, and plunder. There is the blockade on information in which the mainstream media grossly misrepresents and underrepresents all Palestinians. There is the blockade on justice in which the U.S. government blames the victim, excuses the perpetrator, and colludes in genocide. There is the blockade on advocacy and relief efforts in which Israel and pro-Israeli groups proactively thwart help for the besieged Gazan populace. Now there is a new-fashioned blockade call the “new antisemitism” which in a frightening precedent against free speech halts legitimate criticism of Israel. A recent phenomenon, the “new antisemitism” blockade keeps money flowing, rewards Israel's bad behavior, and perpetuates and deepens Gaza's suffering. Egregiously, it blocks Gaza's ability to call for justice.
Elana Freeland – Our Ionized Skies: A Threat to All Life on Earth
2:05 - 27:55 (YouTube)
It is difficult to believe that our planet is being weaponized before our very eyes. Elana Freeland will make the case that humanity is being steered into a militarized space-age dystopia by means of weather modification, chemtrails, plasma cloud cover, ionospheric heaters (HAARP), microwave transmission towers, smart meters, and now the rollout of 5G and Internet of Things. Our health is threatened by nanoparticles drifting down from the upper atmosphere to be zapped by radio waves and microwaves. All around us, we are being influenced by ionized and non-ionized radiation and a plague of autoimmune diseases. Our very DNA is being restructured. Elana calls on citizen-activists to study this technology so they know how to survive UN Agenda 21 and the electromagnetic spectrum dominance of the planned Transhumanist future.
Peter Kirby – Weather Modification: The CIA and the New Manhattan Project
28:40 - 54:25 (YouTube)
Peter Kirby is one of the leading voices exposing how the proliferation of chemtrails in today's skies are part of a New Manhattan Project. Similar to the orginal Manhatten Project in the 1940s that created the atom bomb, this New Manhattan Project is steeped in secrecy, greatly affects the environment, is commandeered by the military industrial complex, and has almost zero public oversight. Peter's cutting edge research will reveal how the New Manhattan Project actually has another component as well: extensive involvement by the CIA. Along with the known list of bad actors, the intelligence agency is likewise responsible for massive climate destruction and the wholesale wrecking of our collective health.
Patrick Roddie – Stop Spraying Us! Exposing—and Ending—the Global Chemtrails Program
55:40 - 1:26:25 (YouTube)
Our planet is being relentlessly sprayed with toxic chemicals in a covert “geoengineering” program. What is being sprayed? How does it affect our health? What can we do to protect ourselves and stop the program? In this presentation, Patrick Roddie proves we are being sprayed with a toxic mix of alumina, barium, and iron nanoparticles that it is responsible for the global spike in Alzheimer’s. He contends we can protect ourselves with silica-rich water, and proposes a legal method to stop the entire program in its tracks.
Jerry Day – Smart Meter Trojan Horses: 24/7 Surveillance, Radiation Sickness, and Other In-Home Dangers
1:27:35 - 1:56:25 (YouTube)
Jerry Day, nationally recognized activist against unlawful and unsafe utility metering, will explain why electronic utility meters, also called Smart Meters, should never be installed on any home and why, if you have one, you need to remove it. That is, if you don't want your personal living space to be subjected to radiation, surveillance, and fire hazards. Jerry’s presentation will give you the knowledge and resources to protect yourself against the very real dangers your utility company feels entitled to inflict on the public at large.
The Perils of 5G Wireless: Resisting Ubiquitous Electromagnetic Radiation
The speaker will discuss the dangers posed by the roll-out of the new 5G wireless technology. Requiring a cell tower transmitter every 2-12 homes, 5G infrastructure will deploy multiple, simultaneous microwaves in denser concentrations than all such radiation transmissions ever before unleashed. The effects present health hazards of unprecedented harm, including increased cancer, neurological disease, immune system disorders, reproductive issues, and cardiac complications. The talk will also explain how the powerful wireless industry controls our political systems, and what activist-citizens can do to stop microwave radiation poisoning in their communities.
Kevin Barrett – Anti-Semitism, Anti-Zionism, Judeophobia: Let’s Define Our Terms
1:30 - 24:25 (YouTube)
There is much confusion and (mis)use by Zionists around the concept of anti-Semitism. Dr. Kevin Barrett will demonstrate that the cluster of slurs—“anti-Semite,” “anti-Semitic,” and “anti-Semitism”—are routinely used to denigrate critics of Zionism. But do critics of Jewish power on both the left and right really hate an entire group of people? While the term “anti-Semitism” once had specific meaning, Dr. Barrett posits that “anti-Zionism” describes those who deny the legitimacy of the state of Israel versus “Judeophobia,” the term he says more accurately defines those who are prejudiced against Jews. Dispensing with the loaded term “anti-Semitism” frees us up to evaluate the cultural and historical reasons why anti-Zionists who oppose Israel are not synonymous with Judeophobes who harbor anti-Jewish prejudices.
Philip Giraldi – How Jewish Power Sustains the Israel Narrative
25:45 - 39:15 (YouTube)
Israel’s ability to manipulate the U.S. political culture and to escape accountability for its many crimes against humanity is enabled by a vast and interlocking domestic lobby. To be sure, Israel finds support from so-called Christian Zionists and other Americans, but its ability to control the media and politicians comes from the financial and institutional clout of American Jews. Liberal Jews, who often are privately appalled by Israel’s behavior, frequently choose to remain silent so as not to break ranks with their more hardline co-religionists who are promoting the interests of the Jewish state even when they are aware that doing so does and will continue to do grave damage to the United States and all its citizens.
Gilad Atzmon – Truth, Truthfulness, and Palestine
40:35 - 1:05:15 (YouTube)
In a healthy society truth doesn’t need a “movement.” In a society with a prospect of a future, truth is explored and celebrated in the open. Gilad Atzmon will delve into the strategies that are set to deviate us from truth and truthfulness. Primarily through the lens of Palestine and Neocon Wars, he will further explore how false dichotomies are manufactured and the means by which detachment and alienation are sustained. By now we are all Palestinians—and like the Palestinians, we are not allowed to utter the name of our oppressor, nor can we discuss the means that facilitate this oppression. Truth is our first step towards emancipation.
Alan Sabrosky – The Impact of Zionist Influence in the U.S.
1:07:05 - 2:01:30 (YouTube)
Alan Sabrosky examines the process by which Zionists acting on behalf of Israel have gained significant control of the United States and its government. Starting gradually in the 1950s, Zionist Jews now hold a commanding influence in such sectors as finance, business, media (online and offline), the academy, the arts, and most obviously, politics. Through funding and other tactics, they effectively control both houses of Congress, leverage the Executive branch, and exert strong influence in nearly two dozen state governments. Regardless of what one thinks of 9/11, neocons (overwhelmingly “Israel Firster” Zionist Jews) are the driving force behind the 9/11 Wars. Without their hidden hand, the wars against Iraq, Libya, and Syria would not have happened, nor the hostilities with Iran and Russia. Incessant charges of “antisemitism” and “Holocaust denial” coercively keep Jews and non-Jews alike from questioning or challenging the dominant narratives.
Jeremy Rothe-Kushel – Talpiot and Unit 8200: The Global Cyber Agenda for Kill-Switch Domination
2:03:15 - 2:53:50 (YouTube)
The Talpiot Program, a long-term Israeli Military Intelligence strategic initiative to give the Israeli War State a permanent technological edge, was rolled out in 1979. Coincidentally or not, this was the same year the modern “War on Terror” had its public-policy birth at the infamous 1979 Jerusalem Conference on International Terrorism. While the SECURITY and INTELLIGENCE results of Talpiot heightened the effectiveness of Unit 8200 (Israel’s NSA, co-producers of the Stuxnet industrial virus), the deep corporatist ECONOMIC impact only got super-charged in the wake of the 9/11 false-flag. Now we face “Crime Minister” Netanyahu's claims for a next-generation "Samson Option" of “kill-switch DIPLOMACY,” powered by Talpiot to hold the world’s databases, hardware backdoors, and critical infrastructure hostage.
