This week would have been the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s 92nd birthday. He was assassinated in 1968.
King was very much opposed to violence and believed strongly in the importance and effectiveness of non-violent, peaceful protest. (Today’s Antifa and BLM, who took part in extremely violent riots, property destruction, looting and arson, burning hundreds if not thousands of businesses to the ground in several different cities, could learn a thing or two from Dr. King’s philosophy and example of non-violence.)
The below video (that’s really all audio) is his great speech from 1967 on why he was opposed to the Vietnam War.
Too bad the people on the left are not as opposed to war as they used to be. I guess Democrat Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama softened all that, with the aid of such political apparatchiks as Joe Biden (Who knows how many wars he’s going to start as President…), Al Gore, Joe Lieberman, Madeleine Albright, and many others now, as they rationalized, voted for or perpetrated more wars and more violence against foreigners who were of no threat to Americans.
The FBI harassed and spied on King, and kept a dossier on him, for political reasons and not because they legitimately suspected him of criminality. I wonder what King would have said today regarding the Democrats’ and Obama regime’s spying on the Trump campaign and administration and attempting to frame Trump with a dirty dossier.
This Martin Luther King, Jr. speech on why he opposed the Vietnam War was given in April, 1967 at Riverside Church in New York. Antiwar.com has the full transcript.
This is the 30th year of the U.S. government’s criminal war of aggression against Iraq, led by President George H.W. Bush in January, 1991. I wrote about that at the time of the 22nd year of that. It had never ended, with all the sanctions and no-fly zones, etc., and it continued with the Bush II renewed escalation in 2003.
I wrote this post a year ago on the 18th anniversary of the September 11th attacks in 2001. So, now it is the 19th anniversary today and I am reposting this. It gives information that, if you are still very young, your parents and teachers probably didn’t give you about 9/11, and if you are older it gives you information that the brain-dead, zombie government-stenographer mainstream news media also didn’t give us, and they still don’t.
Post from a year ago:
Today is the 18th anniversary of the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks on the New York World Trade Center, the Pentacon, and in Pennsylvania. Where was I on that day? Well, I was here in this same apartment sitting at my table doing some writing and my father (now deceased) called at around 10 am saying that their trip that they were going to go on that day was canceled and he told me why. Hmm.
The government’s propaganda began immediately on that day and after. 99% of the news media were the White House press spokesmen. There was no discussion of the attackers stated motives, or the history of U.S. government and military’s invasions, bombings and occupations of the Middle East in the 10 years prior to that time. Anyone who did mention those things was labeled “Anti-America,” or “blaming America” for the attacks. Sean Hannity has been especially bad in that regard ever since that time. He is the worst of the worst as far as apparatchiks for the national security state are concerned. I just thought I’d mention that.
However, given that Hannity and all the other radio ditto-heads are accepting of the idea that actual U.S. government FBI, CIA etc. abused their powers including FISA spying in the Russiagate fiasco, maybe now some of these obedient worshipers of the national security state can at least consider the possibility that the official 9/11 narrative isn’t what the government has been telling us for 18 years. (But, I am not holding my breath.)
So, I’m sure that a lot of people reading this post will just skim it and not really take it seriously or click on any of the links for further information. This is because they are satisfied with what the government and its spokespeople of the mainstream media have been telling us since September 11, 2001. All these things they haven’t heard about must be merely whack-job “conspiracy theory” and all that. But there are still some people who are open to the truth.
In the years prior to the attacks, Congressman Ron Paul had several times warned that the U.S. government’s interventionist policies and war that it started against Iraq and elsewhere and Iraqi sanctions would cause blowback and retaliation within our shores. (And the response? Crickets.)
It’s amazing just how brainwashed so many people can be by daily propaganda, watching the TV news, listening to chickenhawk warmonger conservative talk radio, and so forth. “Al Qaeda.” “Osama bin Laden,” and “Islamic” were words that people heard over and over and over, but they rarely heard about Saudi Arabia and blowback.
I don’t know what else to write so I will post links to some new and old articles on the subject, and maybe some videos.
Over the years I have reported the findings of scientists, engineers, and architects that indicate that the official story is false.I had an open mind for two reasons.One is that having been an engineering student, I could tell the difference from a building falling down from asymmetrical structural damage and a building blowing up.The other is that having been involved in policy issues in Washington for a quarter century I knew that such a humiliating defeat suffered by the world’s only superpower at the hands of a few Muslim terrorists would have brought instant demands from the White House, Congress, and media for investigation into how every aspect of the American national security state failed simultaneously on one morning.Instead the White House resisted the 9/11 families demands for an investigation for one year and never delivered a forensic investigation.Instead, the country was given a 9/11 Commission Report that was merely the government’s official story of what happened.No heads rolled.No one was fired or even reprimanded.To hold no one accountable for such a massive failure and humiliating defeat is not a believable response if the official 9/11 story is true.
Here is an interview in which Lindauer tells about her experiences:
James Corbett with an hour-long discussion on who was really behind the 9/11 attacks:
And here is a video documentary from Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth explaining the evidence that explosions brought down the World Trade Center, and not the fire caused by planes crashing into the buildings:
I admit it. I’m a “truther.” That’s because the truth is important. And as the late Justin Raimondo wrote, the opposite of a “truther” is a “liar.”
Jacob Hornberger and Richard Ebeling of the Future of Freedom Foundation discuss the fight for liberty in Amerika with journalist and author Jim Bovard. They cover Bovard’s recent article, Why I Write, as well as the national security state, the CIA worldwide torture regime, Ruby Ridge, recent “protests” and church closings, among other subjects.
