According to a Nielsen study, the average American adult consumes 10:39 hours of electronic media per day in 2016, up a full hour from 2015. Each year, it increases. At 13:17 hours, blacks expose themselves to the most, with Asians the least at 5:31 hours.

During many cross-country train trips, I’ve always noticed that the calmest and most content people in the lounge car were the Amish, those with no cravings for electronic media. Their children, in particular, were always impressively serene. Instead of hunching over a private movie, or being plugged to detonating beats that irritated everyone nearby, the Amish enjoyed each other’s company. Not wedded to gadgets, they bantered or sat in silence while contemplating this earth, unfurling outside the window.

Minus sleep and work, you only have about eight hours for all other activities. If someone spends all his available time watching TV, listening to music or staring at his stupid phone, he’ll act and react according to his programming, wouldn’t you think?

After Trump won the presidency, young Americans all over the country hit the streets in protest. High school students walked out of class en masse to march. Colleges organized counseling sessions and even cry-ins. It’s quite telling, this uniform dismay. Schools indoctrinate, and colleges teach you how to self-censor.

The revulsion towards Trump is strongest among those with little to no work or life experience. Just about everything they know about the world has been programmed into them by electronic media. Their entire lives, from how they stand or walk to their barely audible interior monologues, are molded by electronic media. Their skulls are electronic media echo chambers.

If it’s cool, they’re hooked. Who cares about contradictions? In 2012, Lady Gaga visited Julian Assange at his de facto London prison. In 2013, she performed at an inaugural ball for Obama’s campaign staff. Gaga is also a long-time supporter of the Clintons. Gaga’s fans, then, can admire her for siding with both Assange and his vicious persecuters. Hillary on Assange, “Can’t we just drone this guy?”

Doped up with songs and slogans, the media-drugged can’t even register contradictions in real time.

In 2011, the Clintons threw a bash for themselves at the Hollywood Bowl. With an all-star lineup, the Decade of Difference Concert celebrated their tremendous role in improving the world. No doubt thinking of NAFTA, Kenny Chesney sang “Beer in Mexico.”

Starin’ out into the wild blue yonder
So many thoughts to sit and ponder
‘Bout life and love and lack of
And this emptiness in my heart

Dude should have changed “heart” to “pocket,” and his song’s title to “Job to Mexico.”

Lady Gaga had no problems tailoring her lyrics. Thus, her “Bad Romance” became “Bill Romance”:

Caught in a Bill romance
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh! Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh!
Caught in a Bill romance
Rah rah ah-ah-ah!
Ro mah ro-mah-mah
Gaga oh-la-la!
I want your ugly
I want your disease
I want your everything
As long as it’s free
I want your love
I want your love

In the audience, Bill, Hillary and Chelsea beamed.

Gaga’s “You and I” included this bit:

There’s something about this place
Something about America
When a Clinton makes us all feel safe
Something about a cool Arkansas guy

Hillary’s 2008 run for the White House was lauded:

Hillary, sit back down where you belong
In the office, with those high heels on.
Sit back down where we watched you charm
The whole world and the country.

Similarly, Bono and the Edge dedicated their “Sunday Bloody Sunday” to Hillary:

I can’t believe the news today
I can’t close my eyes and make it go away.
How long, how long must we sing this song?
Broken bottles under children’s feet
Bodies strewn across the dead-end street.
But I won’t heed the battle call
It puts my back up, puts my back up against the wall.
And it’s true we are immune
When fact is fiction and TV reality.
And today the millions cry
We eat and drink while tomorrow they die.

Though the song is about British troops slaughtering Irish civilians, it was not meant as an ironic jab at our secretary of state but a tribute to Hillary as, somehow, a peacemaker.

Just five days after the concert, Hillary would giddily cackle these words about Gaddafi, “We came, we saw, he died!” To her, it’s downright hilarious to see a foreign leader sodomized with a knife, and the pulverization of Libya was a riot, too. We eat and drink while they die.

After Bill appeared on stage with the aging U-2 rockers, they crooned “Miss Sarajevo” as the final song of the night. It’s certain that few in attendance remembered or cared that their hero presided over the systematic destruction of Yugoslavia, with its 72-day bombing campaign that slaughtered thousands of civilians. Hey, it’s a cool tune!

If you can’t see irony in Lady Gaga serenading a serial sexual predator with “I want your ugly / I want your disease,” you ain’t gonna to see ish. The audience swooned and cheered. Ditto, the next-day commentators. “I wish you were playing sax with me tonight, baby,” Gaga flirted with the murderous creep.

In this culture of endless come-ons, a cool, sexy surface is all that matters, especially to the young, and that’s why pop icons are deployed to shape public opinions. During her second siege of Washington, Hillary enlisted Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Beyonce, Jon Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen, etc. On the YouTube front, she used lesser names like GloZell Green and Sam Tsui.

Often wearing green lipstick, comic GloZell begins each homemade video with, “Hello, this is GloZell! Is you okay? Is you good? ‘Cause I want to know!” She has an autobiography, Is You Okay? In 2015, GloZell was actually invited to interview Obama at the White House.

One of GloZell’s most popular videos shows her sitting in a bathtub. Sloshing in milk while stuffing her face with Froot Loops, GloZell blathers, “I’m going to bring home the gold!”


For a Hillary campaign video, this low-budget buffonery is slicked up considerably. First, we see GloZell in front of a White House replica, then she jumps into a backyard pool. Bust-deep in milk and cereal, six other women perform with red, white and blue beach balls and inflatable batons.

GloZell’s pitch is predictably vapid, “I’ve met Hillary Clinton and I know for sure that she’s for civil rights, she’s for families, she’s for moms, she’s for all peoples. Here’s the way to go, hashtag, I’m with her!”

The last scene is of GloZell bottle-feeding her baby. Though she’s married and lives in an average home, this video depicts GloZell as some ghetto baby mama whooping it up at a White House.

Sam Tsui is a half-Asian Donny Osmond. Though a married gay man, his admirers are mostly teenage girls. In his Hillary video, Tsui is singing in a hipster café and persuading a young woman to vote. Like Tsui, she’s also half white, half Asian. Targeted marketing doesn’t get any more specific. Similarly, GloZell’s mark is another black woman.

If Lady Gaga, Sam Tsui or GloZell Green can influence your politics, then you’re insane, obviously, but that’s where we are as a nation. It’s all going according to plan, including the fragmentation. When these rioting youths face a backlash from middle America, our masters will have the pretext to squash us all.

    Thank you for your assessment of the situation at hand. I had heard of and knew something about Lady Gaga, but until now I never heard of Sam Tsui or GloZell Green. I knew that things were bad, but until now I have not known how bad things really are. I would hope that the assessment in your last paragraph is too pessimistic, but I shudder to think that it may prove to be too optimistic.

    As an addenda, thank you for the reference to the reprobate Bono demonstrating how he turned a song about British troops slaughtering Irish civilians into an encomium for Hillary (“we came, we saw, he died”).

    We now have reports of Electoral College electors getting death threats over their voting for Trump.
    The Clinton Mob at its finest.

  6. One of several reasons I dislike flying is having to witness the masses plugged into their MSM drugs every waking moment. Just look around the plane: the few who aren’t surgically connected to their individual monitors are using their portable devices instead.

    Ask a millennial to put down his or her device for a moment, and interact with the real world. The response is frequently one of outright rage. The owners of the MSM own everything, everything. There’s no way out except through them, and it will be much harder than winning a presidential election.

    However, it’s a good start.

  8. Rehmat says:

    May be that’s is reason the Blacks and Asians are as much brainwashed as the White Americans whose knowledge of the world is based on printed media and TV – all owned by six Zionist Jewish families.

    In 2010, Israel’s premier policy strategy group, the ‘Reut Institue’, submitted its report to Netanyahu’s government – warning that ‘anti-Semite and self-hating Jewish’ organizations and individuals are running a successful campaign to ‘delegitimize’ the Zionist entity. The question is why some rational person would go all the troubles to ‘delegitimize’ and entity which was created through bribing the non-permanent members of the UN Security Council in 1948?

    According to the study: “There are two main generators of attacks on Israel’s legitimacy. The Resistance Network – which operates on the basis of Islamist ideology and includes Iran, Hezbollah, and Hamas; and the Delegitimization Network – which operates in the international arena in order to negate Israel’s right to exist and includes individuals and organizations in the West, which are catalyzed by the radical left”.

    And how these ‘enemies’ of the Zionist entity carry-out the ‘delegitimization’ process?

    “The Resistance Network advancing the ‘implosion strategy’ that aims to precipitate Israel’s internal collapse through a policy of ‘overstretch’: To achieve this, the Resistance Network increases the burden of the ‘Occupation,’ delegitimizes Israel, and develops an asymmetric use-of-force doctrine in the military arena and towards Israel’s home front. These groups take their inspiration from the collapse of the former Soviet Union and apartheid South Africa.

    The Delegitimization Network aiming to turn Israel into a pariah state by undermining its moral legitimacy and ultimately aspiring towards eliminating the ‘Zionist entity.’

  9. Reading Lady GaGa’s crap lyrics, and today coincidentally being the birthday of Johnny Mercer, yeah they are insane : Democrats, leftist, etc.

    And if we do not finally approach the issue of : Professors” we will never begin to turn things around.

    “Professors” being behind all of this malaise in US (world) society. They are the front line for the Progressive (communist), hidden forces, and they are insane and malicious beyond redemption.

  10. Great writing, a powerful piece! Thanks, Mr. Dinh.

    I hear that Sir Michael Moore is preparing a documentary for PBS based on the following paragraphs:

    “Though the song is about British troops slaughtering Irish civilians, it was not meant as an ironic jab at our secretary of state but a tribute to Hillary as, somehow, a peacemaker.

    Just five days after the concert, Hillary would giddily cackle these words about Gaddafi, “We came, we saw, he died!” To her, it’s downright hilarious to see a foreign leader sodomized with a knife, and the pulverization of Libya was a riot, too. We eat and drink while they die.

    It’s important to realize that the ‘phone’ is not really a ‘phone’ but simply a conduit to your mind used by marketers and propagandists. It can be used judiciously but the millions of bots, described so well in the above piece, are simply owned.

    A big fan of Linh here, but with a question. It’s not so obvious to me that the deep state has full control of the process of (s)electing the leadership.

    The question goes back to the 2000 (s)election. If the hidden masters have so much power as to decide between Trump and Hillary, why drag America through Bush v. Gore? Why not just cleanly have Bush installed rather than involving a convoluted legal process that could end up discrediting their choice?

    With respect to this election, why discredit their media, neocons, Bushists and neoliberals if the choice was so easy to make?

    It just seems to me that the selection process isnt so black and white, rather:

    1. The powers allow the people some agency (as PCR suggested, the elite offer choices to be voted on), or;

    2. The powers are not omnipotent and do not actually control elections as easily as is suggested, or;

    3. There is a split within the deep state and conflicts among them are what we see externally in radically different policy approaches within the establishment, and the Bush v. Gore and present fiasco result from actual struggles to install factional representatives.

    My thinking is that 1, 2 and 3 are all true to some extent. Though I agree with Linh’s thesis explained elsewhere I doubt it is as simple as choosing Trump over Hillary for the deep state’s purposes, hence the question.

    In literacy, U.S. millennials scored lower than 15 of the 22 participating countries. Only millennials in Spain and Italy had lower scores.

    In numeracy, U.S. millennials ranked last, along with Italy and Spain.

    In PS-TRE, U.S. millennials also ranked last, along with the Slovak Republic, Ireland, and Poland.

    The youngest segment of the U.S. millennial cohort (16- to 24-year-olds), who could be in the labor force for the next 50 years, ranked last in numeracy along with Italy and among the bottom countries in PS-TRE. In literacy, they scored higher than their peers in Italy and Spain.

    Top-scoring U.S. millennials (those at the 90th percentile) scored lower than top-scoring millennials in 15 of the 22 participating countries, and only scored higher than their peers in Spain.

    Low-scoring U.S. millennials (those at the 10th percentile) ranked last along with Italy and England/Northern Ireland and scored lower than millennials in 19 participating countries.

    Although a greater percentage of young adults in the U.S. are attaining higher levels of education since 2003, the numeracy scores of U.S. millennials whose highest level of education is high school and above high school have declined.

    Since 2003, the percentages of U.S. millennials scoring below level 3 in numeracy (the minimum standard) increased at all levels of educational attainment.

    U.S. millennials with a four-year bachelor’s degree scored higher in numeracy than their counterparts in only two countries: Poland and Spain.

    The scores of U.S. millennials whose highest level of educational attainment was either less than high school or high school were lower than those of their counterparts in almost every other participating country.

    Our best-educated millennials—those with a master’s or research degree—only scored higher than their peers in Ireland, Poland, and Spain.

    Nice Missive. Yes, most Americans, and much of the rest of our Planet’s inhabitants are Brainwashed, Programmed, and Implanted by Zionist designed and operated tools.

    Linh Dinh might have identified the owners and operators of this Orwellian 1984 political culture. Hollywood, the rest of the Mainstream Media, the system of mis-education of the masses (schools, universities), are key components of the elephant in the room, which remains proscribed, – banned – invisible – no permission to mention by those hoping to publish.

    Nice essays become opaque, but the Mainstream Media continues – crystal clear. The approved enemies are identified, (by name). Vladimir Putin is a “Thug,” says Huffington Post (the world’s largest website). Irish, Arabs, and those from Latin America are portrayed as sub humans in Hollywood. {Westside Story portrays Puerto Ricans as evil, their women loose with their morals, and their men lose knife fights to whites}. None of the Alamo movies explain the ownership of Slaves by consciencious objector coward John Wayne, or the other American ‘Freedom Fighters.’ Or that independent Mexico had banned slavery.

    Hollywood continues to insist that Jewish slave labor constructed the Pyramids and other Egyptian monuments, even after Zionist schools in Tel Aviv admit (and teach) that Egyptian free (paid) labor did all the work, as Palestinians today do 95% of the construction labor in their occupied country.

    No correction is made – that the Anti-Semites are Zionist Jews, who preach hatred of, make war against, and steal the lands of the Arab Peoples, including the Palestinians. Arabs are Semites; most Jews are not. My family are German Jews; not a Semite in the lot.

    Lady Gaga (a Kardashian? whoever she is???), is easy to criticize; the Zionist Land Thieving murdering and traitorous elephant scum in the room, are not. It is nice to expose Killery Clinton, but (a suggestion of) who she works for is mysteriously left unmentioned.

    The suggestion of the nature of the American government is not approached by Mr. Dinh. The moral (and practical), necessity to Restore the American Republic is mentioned by few would-be-recognized writers (on the internet or anywhere else). Professors of American History rarely discuss the American Republic (I did, but I have not had my 15 minutes of fame). The American Republic is as unknown, as Lev Bronstein, Buenaventura Durruti, Rocio Banquells, and Dieudonné .

    Yes, we are controlled, all the way to the finest website I’ve seen.

    This is a short video documenting the failed efforts of JOURNALISM students to employ the complex analytical procedure known as “alphabetical order” to look up a name in a phone book. Yup.

    As a cohort, this generation is likely the least knowledgeable and least skilled of all time. Even a cave man before the dawn of written language could provide for his family – these kids can do almost nothing aside from consume resources served to them on a platter.

    “Yes, most Americans & much of our Planet’s inhabitants are Brainwashed, Programmed, and Implanted by Zionist designed and operated tools.”

    I must add how good Zionists are at finding and promoting the best talented musicians who are willing to lower themselves in order to cash in.

    However, and please be mindful that Linh Dinh and I have discussed (one-to-one) the matter of satanism & its having made significant infiltration into American popular music and Hollywood film?

    Respectful that L.D. will stay silent on this matter, I want to show you a music video by Criss Angel, called “Mindfreak” (below) which suggests to me that there is a Central Synagogue of Satan which really goes for mankind’s jugular, mind, and soul.

    It’s rather fun to think Criss Angel would be great (in concert) at the Elite’s annual Bohemian Grove convention!

    Thank you, Durrutti, indeed “Lady Gaga is easy to criticize” and I appreciate how you consistently pursue the bigger & well hidden Zionist “Game. ” (Later, I must check to see if Wikepedia has a bio on Criss Angel, a weird dude, and perhaps find out who are his financial sponsors)

    As you are a great photographer, my words (below) are somewhat pertinent here as I will discuss the most powerful & controversial 28-seconds of film ever made. No, no… it ain’t Tommie Lee and Pamela Anderson fucking!

    As next Tuesday is the 53rd anniversary of JFK’s (unsolved) murder, and I suppose you might consider writing an article on the topic, I want to show you Edward Kosner’s (Wall Street Journal) review of “The Curse of the Zapruders” written by Alexandria Zapruder, below.

    In the book review, Edward Kosner denounced Oliver Stone’s film “JFK” produced by zombie-in-a-3-piece suit, Arn0n Milchan, as a “hysterical movie.” Kosner called Mark Lane “the loopy left-wing New York Pol and author of “Rush to Judgement.”

    At least (Zionist) Rupert Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal gave readers like me very framable corresponding picture (in color) of JFK’s backward “head snap” in the death limousine.

    The murder remains an “open case” despite all the controlled-opposition Elite who merely assert the CIA & War Making machine killed JFK. Pardon me for unfairly placing this on your :things-to-do list, thank you for all the great work. `

    But over the years, the presidential style remained with all the substance gone.

    Obama may act ‘presidential’ in style, but there is no presidential substance in a man who lends time and credence to a creature like GloZell.

    Obama wears a nice suit and doesn’t talk ghetto. He has a serious look on his face. Okay, the style is normal enough. But he panders to freaks, morons, gargoyles, cretins, perverts, nutjobs, and etc. In doing so, he ‘normalizes’ the abnormal and detestable.

    Same with the celebrity-pope who bestows Papal Sanctity on garbage by association.

    A man who is serious in style and serious in action has worth.

    I would like to give two parts to my reply:

    First, Fred Reed wrote this many years ago. This was an essay mocking self-esteem and the emphasis on it in our public schools:

    Maybe the reason [some people] have low self-esteem is that [they] think television is real. If you lived in a small town with no TV, you’d know that everybody was tolerably miserable — the banker was a drunk, the preacher cheated, the mayor and his wife hated each other.

    But the fantasy box tells you that the world is chiefly populated by glamorous hunks and gorgeous babes. They live like James Bond and don’t have problems.

    In a way, the rise of Immoralism is a great boon to the elites.

    The elites fear the masses that are moralized.

    Moral Masses have virtue, righteousness, and dignity(or at least the appearance of such) on their side. Even if they are poor, they have good decent values. They are for basic needs and fundamental truths.
    The Joad Family had little in GRAPES OF WRATH, but Ma Joad was a decent woman, and we respected her and her family. George and Mary Bailey in Bedford Falls were decent folks.
    And the same goes for the black mama in RAISIN IN THE SUN.

    Now, imagine if Ma Joad had been like Lady Gaga. Imagine if the Negress matriarch in RAISIN had been like GloZell. They might raise the volume and get some attention, but they get no real respect. They turn Progressivism into exercise in vanity, excess, egotism, debauchery, wantonness, and ludicrousness. Progressivism of this kind may be colorful and ‘fun'(for some), but it has no moral gravitas, no dignity, no integrity.

    Immoralize the masses, and they have no dignity and righteousness with which to challenge and oppose the greedy and corrupt elites. When the masses are corrupt to the core in lifestyle and behavior, they are rendered resentful against those who have more. Everything becomes materialized.

    In the past, the Progressive challenge against the Rich wasn’t simply materialistic: “you got more, so give us some!!”

    There as also the moral assertion and challenge to the rich that the life of common folks around family, community, and moderation was morally superior to the life of the rich who indulge in decadence, excess, and etc.

    This was why bourgeois culture was afraid of decadent excess and piggery. The rich feared the Moral Righteousness of the Working Class masses if the rich got too indulgent in their vanity and luxury. So, bourgeois culture aspired to be respectable and restrained, especially with the Protestant Work Ethic stuff. Even if you have lots of money, don’t act like a pig like some did during the Gilded Age. Use that money for the public good.

    But over the years, both the rich and the masses lost moral sense. The rich now indulge in piggish excess without shame. And the poor have been Jerry-Springer-ized and Maury-Povich-ized. Neither side has any dignity or righteousness. But the rich need not fear moral challenge from the masses since what passes for mass morality is praising Lena Dunham for her ass tattoo. Masses without dignity haven’t the ammunition to challenge the rich class. And in a world where homos and trannies are worshiped as angels, it is difficult for anyone to be seriously moral about anything.
    What passes for ‘morality’ in the US is PC-addled millennials shutting down a bakery or pizzeria because it won’t cater to the abomination of ‘gay weddings’ that associate marriage with fecal-penetrative sexual deviants.

    Of course, there is PC righteousness, but it’s mostly about nonsense such as ‘trigger warning’ this and ‘micro-aggression’ that. It’s just spoiled brats in colleges throwing tantrums because THEY don’t get invited to ‘cool’ parties where all the beer and sex are.

    At fraternities, you got cretinous studs and shameless whores who indulge in sleaze.
    As for those who don’t get any action, they take up PC and bitch about whatever happens to be fashionable in the Current Year since they need something to vent their spleen on.

    And given so many worthless students now attend colleges, the only thing they can succeed at is bitching and throwing fits about 50 genders and racism, racism, racism, everything is racist, racist, racist.

    To Authenticjazzman,

    I try to be polite, but your perpetual comment “sign-off” broadcasting that you’re a 40-year Mensa Society member is becoming an annoyance. Not mental midgets ourselves, We get it…, okay?

    The reason I write now is that I have yet to read your note of appreciation to “anon” for his conveyance of higher education; in particular his/her reminder about the Frankfurt school’s “objectives” and how they got “booted out of Germany” and afterward “set up shop” at Columbia University.

    Since you’re MENSA (40 years and counting), I suppose it’s redundant to attach Wikepedia information on the Frankfurt School, but I still feel you owe at least one “Ed Norton/IQ level” word of appreciation to “anon.”

    One matter that you may help me with? Yesterday, an A.P. reporter (Martin Crutsinger) indicated that Chairman of Federal Reserve, Dr. Janet Yellen, is not at all ruffled given Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary. Crustsinger opined, “Yellen expects to stay!” Further, and this is where I get confused, it was reported that “she (Janet) has no plans to step down before her four-year term ends in January 2018. ” Continuing to follow the A.P. column, Crustsinger emphasized that Dr. Yellen “reiterated the Fed’s political independence.”

    Please, please, Authenticjazzman, I forgive you for the silence on “anon’s” having generously supplied you with vital information, but can you help me figure out the following three perplexing questions?

    1. Why would Fed Chairman Yellen get concerned with Trump’s election and fear for getting
    the boot prior to the end of her 4-year term? She emphasized her position is “apolitical.’

    2. Who elects the person who becomes appointed as Chairman of the Federal Reserve?
    Can they “fix” elections like the Deep Jewish State fixed this most recent election?

    3. Why is it that all Federal Chairman are Jewish? (Note: Seems to me that the ‘apolitical”
    Fed would not “give a shit” had even Ron “Audit the Fed” Paul gotten elected POTUS,

    Thank you AuthenticJazzman! I’d really like to hear you blow a trumpet, but I’m quite blown away by your constant toot-tooting of 40-years in MENSA. Do yourself a favor and grant MENSA no more “Right of Return.”

    Well, yes. Perhaps you don’t realize how non-white young Americans are? Or maybe you don’t understand how this affects the statistics?

    I couldn’t quickly find a table to link to, so you’ll have to accept my calculations from the American Community Survey from 2010-2014. Overall, the US population in those years was 68% non-hispanic white. But if you restrict attention to the 16-24 age population, the US population was only 56% non-hispanic white.

    So, the 90th percentile of the US population could easily be at something between the 80th and 85th percentile of the white population. So, comparing the US youth population to the youth population of still-very-white European countries is really quite silly.

    Americans and Germans are “Professor and doctor” worshipers meaning anything and everything “Professors” and dcotors say is to most Americans the word of God, and research has it that 96% of US Professors are registered Democrats, meaning communists, and they are spreading the “Frankfurter Schule”, they are disseminating the marxist madness though US society via the bogus US edumacation system on a daily basis, producing and pushing millions of air-brained commie sympathizers otherwise known a “Students” into society, semester after semester, and we see the brutal results before our eyes.

    In Italy for example the title “Professore” or “Dotore” is used as a sarcastic form of greeting, whereas I can vividly recall an incident back in the sixties in Düsseldorf Germany, while in the waiting room of a doctors practice,and in came the Medico and the waiting german patients all ( except myself ) stood up as if a general had entered a command center, and this is what I am implying about Americans : they worship, such as Germans “Professors”, and they are oblivious to the FACT that these perfidious bastards are the ones who are destroying the nation, moreso than the Fed or any other element.

    “He was murdered. Michael Collin Piper’s “The final Judgement” is the best book… etcetera.”

    Sam J,

    Before year’s end, I am determined to buy Mr. Collin’s (Eternal Memory!) “The Final Judgement.” As you might know, it’s even very expensive to purchase his book “used” on

    So you know, to date, I have only read 3-books on the JFK murder, namely, Mark Lane’s seminal “Rush to Judgement,” Robert Lifton’s great researched (forensic) book, “Best Evidence,” and most recently James Douglass’s “JFK and the Unspeakable.”

    Although I cherish the conveyed knowledge in each of the 3-books noted above, none of them touched the Third Rail turf like Michael Collins Piper did and showed how Israeli’s were in no way going to allow a POTUS stop them from developing a nuclear weapon program.

    However, Mr. Robert Lifton’s “Best Evidence” concluded that the Secret Service served a vital role in JFK’s murder and the cover up. No one, including me, likes repetition on blog comment “links” to articles. Below is one that I must reprise, Sam J, and I hope you might read Kosner’s deceptive review of “Twenty-Six Seconds” by Alexandria Zapruder, Abraham Z.’s granddaughter. Alexandria’s profiled as a Holocaust historian.

    From Robert Lifton’s book, “Best Evidence,” I learned that JFK’s death route down Elm Street was not well advertised, and as one can tell by viewing the Zapruder film frames, there was not large crowds assembled along the route. Nevertheless, 58-year old Abraham Zapruder took his trusty Bell & Howell 414PD camera, found a good vantage point, and filmed the big Lincoln convertible as it was fired upon.

    Doubtless, it’s natural for amateur film buffs to take pictures of big hometown political events. Afterward, as a Jew, Abraham Zapruder was sensitive to realize that Dallas was a conservative Christian hot bed city, and he did not want to become seen as a profiteer.

    Intelligently, & realizing he filmed the murder, Mr. Zapruder directly went to a Kodak lab for film development and he made X-tra copies. Curiously — Sam J — Alexandria Zapruder’s book indicates that neither the Dallas police nor the FBI got the first look at Abraham Z,’s film. According to book reviewer, Edward Kosner, “The Secret Service took the film but left the original film and the camera with Zapruder.”

    Did Zapruder first contact the Dallas P.D. about the existence of his historical film, and the cops in turn gave him the Secret Service telephone number? Without refined Columbo investigation skills, I would consider the film as EVIDENCE and the next Abraham Zapruder call should have been made to the F.B.I.

    At any rate, the book review concludes that as a result of the JFK records Act (1992) the Zapruder family wound up getting $16 million for Abe’s 26 seconds of film! The Dallas Daily Morning News called the arbitration award “Blood Money” and to date, Americans are still being taken for a ride in that big black Lincoln limo!

    Thank you very much for showing continued interest in the JFK deliberately deceptive “Closed” murder case. I realize Linh Dinh constantly works on his next article, but I am hoping he publishes something on JFK by this Tuesdaya, the 53rd anniversary of his murder and the very sad & weak spectacle of the 53 year old cover up. I am so sick of hearing the “Controlled Opposition” timidly pontificate “The CIA and War Making Machine conspired to kill JFK.”

    That’s helpful. The problem is that you don’t understand the statistics.

    To make things simple, imagine we are comparing 1000 Germans in American to 1000 Germans in Germany. At the 90th percentile, we are comparing the 100th smartest German in America to the 100th smartest German in Germany. Now expand the population in America by adding 1000 blacks and hispanics. Again, to make things simple, suppose none of the blacks and hispanics are above the German average. Now there are 2000 people in the American sample, and the 90th percentile is the 200th smartest German in America. So, by adding the lower performing individuals to the American population, when you compare the 90th percentile American to the 90th percentile German, what you are really doing is comparing the 90th percentile German to the 80th percentile German in America. So, it isn’t that the blacks and hispanics are in the the top 10 percent, it’s that by expanding the population at the bottom, the top 10 percent has to reach further down in the distribution of the high performing group.

    Let me know if you still don’t understand, and I will try again.

  59. Great article Linh. I don’t watch television and pay little attention to popular culture, so I was confused as to why children felt the need and the right to protest a lawful election. It is disappointing to see that a ridiculous character like GloZell had access to the president.

    I have also wondered why an Englishman like John Oliver earns his living in American chastising Americans. Although, his recent rant against public school racial “segregation” seemed to have fallen flat with his white liberal studio audience. Oliver doesn’t seemed to grasp that has the country gets browner, there are less white children available to integrate schools. Plus the browner children are usually two to three grades behind the white ones and have more behavior problems. Oliver just had a baby so it remains to be seen if he puts the child in public or private school around mostly whites.

    Matt Damon has narrated a documentary on the evils of public charter schools, yet he was exposed earlier this year for trying to put his children in a private school that charges up to $42,000 a year. Choice is ok for the wealthy but not the poor.

    One of the makers of the documentary is Sarah Mondale, Walter Mondale’s niece. Sarah talks about how her father, an educator, was a staunch believer in public education but leaves out the fact that he only taught in majority white institutions. She likes to mention that she graduated from DC’s Woodrow Wilson High in 1972 and is now herself a public high school teacher, but leaves out that all of the schools have been affluent and majority white. If concerned black parents could send their kids to the schools that Sarah Mondale teaches in they wouldn’t need charter schools.

    Even Page Six, the New York Post’s gossip column, has pointed out that celebrity endorsements were useless because celebrities are out of touch with regular people.

    “I’m implying that Americans worship … Germans ‘Professors,’ and they are oblivious to the FACT that these perfidious bastards are the ones who are destroying the nation, moreso than the Fed or any other element.”

    Congrats… now I can see some mental dividend for your forty-pus years in MENSA. Your (undocumented) stats showing that 96% of US Professors are registered Democrat and are spreading the Frankfurt School curriculum are palatable to me. Indeed, in daily semester’s, The Federal Reserve’s crooked covenant with America gets codified by Ph.D. professors in Economics.101, and such expensive distortion “Trickles Down” to students who really desire to get ahead, ideally join Wall Street.

    However, Authenticjazzman, as I have attended history and political classes at both the (Jesuit) U. of Scranton and Lehigh University , not one of my history/political science professors were German-Americans. I think both you and I will benefit by looking into the percentage of tenured Jews who are on the faculties of such distinguished colleges of economics, for example, M.I.T. and The Chicago School of Economics.

    Finally, I will explain why I have a “chip on my shoulder” with MENSA members. In 1987, I was dating my future wife Carol and as things often got physical, I was hospitalized due to two ruptured (lower) back disks. In the C.M.C., I met Chuck Bradbury, a NYC mailman, and who was Ray Bradbury’s nephew, the author of Fahrenheit 451!

    Chuck Bradbury was a very cool and decent guy; he gave me an autographed print of Chumbley’s “James Dean” and, in addition, he gave me a “head up” about the career & physical dangers involved in my continuing conversation with James Ennes, who wrote a book on the criminal Israeli murder on the USS Liberty, 1967. He passionately warned me, “Don’t go there, Chuck!”

    My relationship went sour when steady girlfriend Carol and I brought Chuck Bradbury to local Julia’s Bar. Whenever I either went to speak to someone or left to make pee-pee, Chuck Bradbury made romantic “moves” on Carol and explained how more financially secure she’d be with him (a US P.O. mailman) rather than me. Ever since then, I lost contact with Chuck Bradbury and to date, I keep close eye upon those who broadcast MENSA membership.

    Seriously…, instead of the over done MENSA reference, why don’t you “link” a video clip of your singing and playing sax? Thank you very much for the insight on lying “Professors.” Rarely do even opposition economic writers give us something solid to think about, like the non-Milton Freidman article attached, below.

    Our masters may indeed wish to smash the historic American nation.

They have already tried to impose a Third World hellhole on us already with the help of the many white traitors in our midst such as the Bushes, Clintons, Ryans, and McCains.

    But there is one significant problem interfering with their plans: Those who would be implementing the reign of terror ordered by the masters, meaning the police and the military, are largely on our side. Furthermore, many of the deplorables are armed and some know how to fight. It would not be an easy reign of terror for the masters.

    Chuck, have you seen the footage where the motorcade comes to a halt just before it makes the sharp turn into Dealy Plaza and two Secret Service guys get into an argument? There is no sound but it’s clear that the agent on foot is angry with the more senior agent in the convertible (not the presidential one) for being called away from standing on the rear of JFK’s Lincoln (as protocol dictated). There were supposed to be agents walking alongside at such low speeds too but these were also pulled off. The standing agent raises his arms three times, each time higher as if to say WTF? This was a matter of mere seconds prior to the hit.

    I read in The Last Investigation (a book that delves into the various JFK investigative accounts) asks the questions, who had the power to pull back the security? Who had the power to countermand the Dallas PD and thwart the autopsy? Who had the power to insert the false narrative into the media instantly? The men with the checked hatbands on the grassy knoll were able to flash badges and turn around the Dallas cops too.

    I haven’t read Best Evidence or The Final Judgement but I’ll get them both from my local library and I agree that a JFK article would be timely and much appreciated. Hopefully some good should will post video of Bill Hicks’ comedy bit on the JFK assassination too, it’s a classic.

    These are the inadvertently expressed truths –“. …American Enterprise Institute, a think tank that has had strong influence in staffing the administration and shaping its ideas. ”

    Last night my good friend and I attended a U. of Scranton men’s basketball tournament game, and I explained my concerns about the Zapruder film and how either the CIA or FBI should have taken custody of the awful JFK murder evidence, instead of the Secret Service.

    My friend agreed but he said, “Unfortunately, as time passes and there’s no real investigation into the 9-11 mass murder, I regrettably think you’re pounding sand.’ I agreed with him because all we ever get is some TV History channel replays of November 22, 1963 and unjust US Justice continues.

    At any rate, Lifton’s book “Best Evidence” is excellent because it delivers EVIDENCE in technical and logical terms. Among many matters of concern, you will enjoy how Lifton scourges puppet attorney Arlen Specter’s Magic Bullet theory.

    The text from the soundtrack of In girum imus nocte et consumimur igni is beyond superb. An English translation is available here:

    Here is the beginning in that translation

    “I will make no concessions to the public in this film. I believe there are several good reasons for this decision, and I am going to state them.

    In the first place, it is well known that I have never made any concessions to the dominant ideas or ruling powers of my era.

    Moreover, nothing of importance has ever been communicated by being gentle with a public, not even one like that of the age of Pericles; and in the frozen mirror of the screen the spectators are not looking at anything that might suggest the respectable citizens of a democracy.

    But most importantly: this particular public, which has been so totally deprived of freedom and which has tolerated every sort of abuse, deserves less than any other to be treated gently. The advertising manipulators, with the usual impudence of those who know that people tend to justify whatever affronts they don’t avenge, calmly declare that ‘People who love life go to the cinema.’ But this life and this cinema are equally paltry, which is why it hardly matters if one is substituted for the other.

    The movie-going public, which has never been very bourgeois and which is scarcely any longer working-class, is now recruited almost entirely from a single social stratum, though one that has been considerably enlarged — the stratum of low-level skilled employees in the various ‘service’ occupations that are so necessary to the present production system: management, control, maintenance, research, teaching, propaganda, entertainment, and pseudocritique. Which suffices to give an idea of what they are. This public that still goes to the movies also, of course, includes the young of the same breed who are merely at the apprenticeship stage for one or another of these functions.

    From the realism and the achievements of this splendid system one could already infer the personal capacities of the underlings it has produced. Misled about everything, they can only spout absurdities based on lies — these poor wage earners who see themselves as property owners, these mystified ignoramuses who think they’re educated, these zombies with the delusion that their votes mean something….”

    Ring any bells?

    The documentary that had the footage of the SS agents arguing also claimed that GHWBush was seen in Dallas that day whilst claiming to be elsewhere. It also stated that GHWB visited JEHoover on 23/11/63 ostensibly to threaten him not to pursue certain leads. I had the link on an old computer but carelessly didn’t save it when it passed on.

    Are you referring to this photo:

    It makes perfect sense to me for the CIA/Mossad to have at least one (1) high ranking coordination/agent in Dallas, on the dreadful day, November 22, 1963.

    Such rather critical on-scene presence was repeated by Israeli Ehud Olmert’s secret visit to New York City on the dreadful day, September 11, 2001. If you can access You Tube video, please consider watching Israeli politician & military leader, Ehud Barak, speak from London BBC , and shape world public opinion by offering a crackpot explanation of what happened in N.Y.C. only hours after the 9-11 False Flag attacks.

    I’d be ashamed (self condemned) were I to have stated what Ehud Barak did.

    I do not like being in a position to direct anyone’s reading, unless of course I am asked to do so, Nosythe Duke. But since U.S. “baby boomers” (like me) are understandably more concerned about the fate of their 401-Ks, I want to let you know who else was observed dropping off a “package” nearby the November 1963 death scene in Dallas. Jack (Rubinstein) Ruby. Please look at article below?

    Last year, I first learned about Jack Ruby’s strange sighting nearby Dealey Plaza while reading James Douglass’s “JFK: And the Unspeakable.” I found this book very informative but, for whatever reason & to my dismay, Mr. Douglass did not pursue the “800 Pound Gorilla,” Mossad connection to JFK’s murder. “J.F.K.: The Unspeakable” was reviewed by Paul Craig Roberts (2015) but still no mention of Israeli involvement… just the “same-old/same old” CIA managed the JFK hit with full support from the Military Industrial Complex.

    NosytheDuke, long-winded… please bear with me? I was 11-yeara old on the day JFK was murdered. Right now, I am going to write down a quote from my ORIGINAL copy of Mark Lane’s book, “Rush to Judgement.” Mr. Lane told the story of Julia Ann Mercer, a 23-year old Dallas resident, who steered her car toward the triple underpass and “seh saw a ‘truck parked on the right side of the road… at the base of the grassy knoll.” I’ll bug out now, NosytheDuke and let the brave Mark Lane tell the rest:

    “(in the presence of Dallas Police Department officers), Miss Mercer saw a heavy-set middle-aged man in a green jacket ‘slouched over the wheel’ of an (illegally parked) truck while the other man ‘reached over the tali gate and took out from the truck what appeared to be a gun case’.”

    Of course, as the U.S. Department of Justice’s demonic fix was in, the Warren Commission did not try to identify the three police officers. The Warren Commission refused to call in Julia Ann Mercer as a witness, and they allowed Jewish attorney Arlen Specter to concoct the lie ridden “Magic Bullet Theory.” Time passed like “The Twenty-Six” Zapruder seconds, and (sigh) Arlen Specter got elected as U.S. Senator, serving my home state, Pennsylvania.

    Thank you very much for tuning in.

    Thank you very much, E.A. Costa! I never saw this photo. One would think even 1960s era spooks would try and avoid (at all cost) compromising pictures taken of them? Things are different now when almost every passer by has a cell phone camera… and as I understand it, the more well off have Google eye glass cameras.

    I do not enjoy taking away the subject of this very IMPORTANT article by Linh Dinh, and I had hoped his “Trump Decoy” would (deservedly) surpass 1,000 comments. Forgive me, but I have one more off-topic point to make?

    Maybe you noticed how V.P. Pence, P.M. Benjamin Netanyahu & spouse, and Dick Cheney were in attendance at the weekend showing of “Hamilton.” Why “Hamilton” attracted such a committed Zionist trio made me suspicious and provoked thought. Long time ago, I read Gore Vidal’s excellent book “Burr,” and having looked around the internet, below I found a rather obscure history on Alexander Hamilton background, including his loaded father-in-law.

    Have you noticed the relative silence of sleuth Dick Cheney during the Trump/Hillary Potemkin Village (ploy) election? Afterward, Cheney, a key figure during the 9-11 False Flag event, suddenly appears at “Hamilton.” Add staunch Neo Con V.P. elect-Pence in the “Hamilton” show V.I.P. section. Then add Netanyahu’s night out on the “Hamilton” town, and how he was (reportedly) guarded by a U.S. Secret Service team.

    I admit this is all pretty X-Files, E.A. Costa, but for me, this united trio’s (separate) attendance looked ritualistic to me. Yes, “ritualistic” — involving money, a Hamilton passion play, and in the future, how humanity will “buy and sell.” Thanks for tuning-in and responding!

    I do not know whether or not readers have moved-on from this article, and I hope such is not the case.

    At any rate, I want to apologize for making a clumsy “post” on my comment # 77, above. Below is the actual article that I desired to bring to reader attention, which gives clues as to why V.P. elect Pence, Netanyahu, and Dick Cheney appeared at & paid homage to the weekend showing of “Hamilton.” The world’s in for a very “austere” economic shake up.

    I believe the Donald Trump Zionist Economic Team is prepping to re-package the Trans Pacific Partnership to the satisfaction of Murdoch’s W.S.J. who’s “Review & Outlook” had a pushy opinion entitled “China Picks Up The U.S. Trade Fumbled; Monday, November 21, 2016, Page A 18. This is insightful reading if you want to follow the bouncing matso ball.

    To Linh Dinh,

    Your “Postcards from Germany” are history now, but I truly hope they are not forgotten. Because you did so much to inform me and perhaps many others about the political mindset in today’s Germany, I want to show you today’s W.S.J. article, below, which (perhaps) slipped and outed a “secretive U.S. agency that vets global deals on national-security grounds.”

    To All: As merely a freshman undergrad student and taking a “home school” tutorial in Protcols of Zion Economics.101, I am very fortunate to enjoy a daily reading of the Wall Street Journal for the past few weeks. Soon I must return to reading discarded editions of the W.S.J. which a Scranton businessman hands off to me when he’s finished. I hope all enjoy Thanksgiving and that no freak U.S. Agency tries to takeover the “dressing.”

    Q: At this point, someone might be asking what you’ve been smoking. What is Israel’s interest in such a monstrous plot, which, of course, no one believes except Islamist extremists who concocted this piece of disinformation in the first place, presumably to detract from the real culprits?

    A: Jews never agreed to Bush 41 (George H.W. Bush, the 41st president) or 43 (his son George W. Bush, the 43rd president). They made sure Bush senior didn’t get a second term. His land-for-peace pressure in Palestine didn’t suit Israel. They were also against the young Bush because he was considered too close to oil interests and the Gulf countries. Bush senior and Jim Baker had raised $150 million for Bush junior, much of it from Mideast sources or their American go-betweens. Bush 41 and Baker, as private citizens, had also facilitated the new strategic relationship between Saudi Arabia and Iran. I have this from sources in both countries. So clearly the prospect of a Bush 43 was a potential danger to Israel.

    Jews were stunned by the way Bush stole the election in Florida. They had put big money on Al Gore. Israel has given its imperialist guardian parent opportunities to turn disaster into a pretext for imposing an all-encompassing military, political and economic agenda to further the cause of global capitalism. While Colin Powell is cautious and others are reckless and want to make up for their failure to defeat Saddam Hussein in the Gulf War 10 years ago, the global agenda is the same.

    Israel knows it has a short shelf-life before it is overwhelmed by demographics. It is a state that was born in terrorism that terrorized Palestinians into the exile of refugee camps, where they have now subsisted in squalid refugee camps, and is now very much afraid of Pakistan’s nuclear capability.

    Israel has now handed the Bush family the opportunity it has been waiting for to consolidate America’s imperial grip on the Gulf and acquire control of the Caspian basin by extending its military presence in Central Asia. Bush conveniently overlooks — or is not told — the fact that Islamic fundamentalists got their big boost in the modern age as CIA assets in the covert campaign I was also involved with to force the Soviets out of Afghanistan. Bush senior was vice president during that entire campaign. And no sooner did he become president on Jan. 20, 1989, than he summoned an inter-agency intelligence meeting and issued an order, among several others, to clip the wings of ISI (Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence) that had been coordinating the entire operation in Afghanistan. I know this firsthand as I was DGISI at the time (director general, ISI).

    From an interview given 9/14/01 by Pakastani General, Hameed Gul.

    …because they truly think of themselves as smart and informed.

    That certainly is the truth. Give ’em some “degree” and they really believe they know something. What a joke 99% of them are!

  79. utu says:

    Bush 41 gets lots of bad press. But he was the last president who actually tried stand up to Israel then backed off but still paid for it and was not reelected.

    While the liberal Jews might have been upset about Florida 2000, all the neocons must have been jubilant. I wonder whether they would risk 9/11 w/o having the neocons in top position and Al Gore as president. When did the planning of 9/11 began and when the execution of it (preparing demolition) started?

    Prince Bandar was tutoring Bush 43 before election on foreign policy and how to deal with the enemies of his father, i.e. the neocons. But the neocons were smarter then Bush 43 and outplayed him.

    Donald Trump meets with prominent Sanders supporter Tulsi Gabbard

    But the Iraq war veteran has also expressed views that might appeal to Trump, criticising Obama, condemning interventionist wars in Iraq and Libya and taking a hard line on immigration. In 2014, she called for a rollback of the visa waiver programme for Britain and other European countries with what she called “Islamic extremist” populations.

    In October last year she tweeted: “Al-Qaeda attacked us on 9/11 and must be defeated. Obama won’t bomb them in Syria. Putin did. #neverforget911.” She was then among 47 Democrats who joined Republicans to pass a bill mandating a stronger screening process for refugees from Iraq and Syria coming to the US.

    Media reports have suggested that Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon is an admirer of Gabbard. Last week, when 169 Democrats signed a letter condemning Bannon’s appointment by Trump for encouraging white nationalism, she was not among them.

    Gabbard Statement on Meeting with President-Elect Donald Trump

    “I felt it important to take the opportunity to meet with the President-elect now before the drumbeats of war that neocons have been beating drag us into an escalation of the war to overthrow the Syrian government…”

    ““While the rules of political expediency would say I should have refused to meet with President-elect Trump, I never have and never will play politics with American and Syrian lives.”

    Weapons for ISIS via US gov. Saudi Arabia and Turkey

    Ammunition boxes were turning up that could be traced back to factories in Eastern Europe.

    It emerged that the material had been sold – legally – to the governments of the United States and Saudi Arabia. It was then shipped through Turkey.

    The destination was northern Syria and the opposition groups (which the US and Saudi Arabia supported) fighting President Bashar al-Assad.

  83. @E. A. Costa

    Thanks for that. It was a documentary that I watched quite a few years ago and that photo was possibly in it. The allegation certainly was made of GHWB being in Dallas even though the official account claimed he was elsewhere. I’m pretty sure the visit he made to Hoover was the next day.

    The part that was unforgettable though was the argument between the SS guys, the agent standing raises his arms in exasperation three times, each time higher than previously and it’s hard for me not to conclude that he was protesting being called off the back of the presidential Lincoln.

    I might have an old disc somewhere that old files were saved to after my laptop came down with a virus and was wiped, I’ll look for it but if anyone else knows of this it would be terrific if they would share it.

  84. I don’t see any mention of mesmerism, hypnotism in current discussions of the media- enthralled
    tantrummers. It’s an important element of this mad situation. Sitting in front of a screen, focussing single-mindedly on it in a state of acquiescence and acceptance is a recipe for mesmerism. And mesmeric control, although based on the acceptance of error and lies as true, is a real thing. That is what I think we are seeing – mass mind control via the screens of our devices.

    We need expert analysis of of the background settings and the subliminal behavioural signals from broadcasters and entertainers in order to determine whether hypnotic techniques are being employed as the trusting, gazing public stares at, listens to, and applauds professional liars and truth-twisters.
