We warned you, folks
There’s a reason we broadcast over dozen critiques of Obama before the 2008 election.
There’s also a reason we call him “Bushbama”
Great takeaway: The United States of Amnesia
Oliver Stone to RT: ‘US has become an Orwellian state’ (“…American citizens live in a fish tank where their government intercepts more than 1.7 billion messages a day. “That is email, telephone calls, other forms of communication.””)
Americans are living in an Orwellian state argue Academy Award-winning director Oliver Stone and historian Peter Kuznick, as they sit down with RT to discuss US foreign policy and the Obama administration’s disregard for the rule of law.
Both argue that Obama is a wolf in sheep’s clothing and that people have forgiven him a lot because of the “nightmare of the Bush presidency that preceded him.”
“He has taken all the Bush changes he basically put them into the establishment, he has codified them,” Stone told RT. “It is an Orwellian state. It might not be oppressive on the surface, but there is no place to hide. Some part of you is going to end up in the database somewhere.”
According to Kuznick, American citizens live in a fish tank where their government intercepts more than 1.7 billion messages a day. “That is email, telephone calls, other forms of communication.”
“The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, prejudices – to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own for the children and the children yet unborn. And the pity of it is that these things cannot be confined to . . . The Twilight Zone.” — Rod Serling, 1960

As we approach the 49th observance of the assassination of JFK, I have been invited to speak at The Roxie Theatre in San Francisco on 22 November 2012 and explain what Oliver Stone got right and got wrong in his monumental film, “JFK”. Most of the film is right, where Oliver Stone has given us the most accurate, complete and comprehensive presentation of what actually happened in Dealey Plaza on 22 November 1963 that has ever been provided to the American public though the mass media.

Douglas P. Horne, who served as the Chief Analyst for Military Records for the ARRB (formally, The Assassination Records Review Board), a five member civilian panel that was entrusted with the mission of locating and declassifying documents and records held by the CIA, the FBI, the Secret Service, ONI, and other federal agencies under The JFK Records Act (which was passed by Congress in the wake of the resurgence of interest in the death of JFK, which was brought about by Oliver Stone’s monumental film, “JFK”), has become a personal hero of mine. Those in that category are few and far between, but include JFK, RFK, Mohammed Ali, Bill Russell, and other figures from JFK assassination research, including David W. Mantik, M.D., Ph.D., John P. Costella, Ph.D., and Jack White, who have been among my closest associates and collaborators for more than 20 years.
“He’s the only one who’s saying anything intelligent about the world”
Acclaimed film director Oliver Stone, known for such masterpieces as Platoon, JFK and Born on the Fourth of July, has declared he would vote for Ron Paul over Barack Obama, if Paul could secure the 2012 GOP nomination.
Stone made the comments in an interview with Rock Cellar magazine, noting “I think in many ways the most interesting candidate — I’d even vote for him if he was running against Obama — is Ron Paul.”
“He’s the only one of anybody who’s saying anything intelligent about the future of the world.” Stone added.
When asked if an economic collapse would lead to the fall of the American “empire”, Stone responded “I think it’s a given.”
“There’s no way that we can continue this spending spree.” The Wall Street director added.
In 2008, Stone was an outspoken Obama supporter and donated the maximum amounts legally possible to the Obama campaign, calling the eventual president the “heir to John F. Kennedy.”
The assassination of John F. Kennedy remains more than just a pastime for conspiracy theorists. Kennedy himself, in fact, was one that looked to stamp out what he perceived as powerful secret societies within the U.S. government.
Two years before his assassination, JFK delivered a powerful speech at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York. Speaking with the National News Publishers Association on April 27, 1961, Kennedy called for an end to secret societies in government.
Many conspiracy theorists believe that this speech sealed the fate of a conspiracy theorist president.
So, did Kennedy’s denouncement of secret societies indeed seal his fate?
According to a transcript of the speech, entitled “The President and the Press,” Kennedy spoke out against secrecy in government and warned those at all levels of government to avoid the stifling of dissent and covering up of mistakes.
Yet, in the same speech Kennedy scolded the press for revealing sensitive issues of national security.
The idea that Kennedy’s assassination was a government cover-up is by no means an uncommon theory. Even filmmaker Oliver Stone took plenty of heat for his Academy Award-winning film JFK, which implied that Lyndon Johnson played a role in the President’s assassination.
The question of course remains: did those looking to harbor secrecy within the government have enough at stake to warrant murdering Kennedy? Theorists have taken aim at the CIA, KGB, the Mafia, the FBI, and even Fidel Castro.

The Real ‘Birther‘ Conspiracy Theory
The American Thinker ^ | February 11, 2011 | Jack CashillPosted on Friday, February 11, 2011 4:59:20 AM by
the course of my inquiries into many of history’s more recent controversies — JFK, Waco, Vince Foster, Oklahoma City, Ron Brown, TWA Flight 800, 9/11, Obama’s birth, the authorship of Obama’s books — I have come to see that when there are actual conspiracies afoot, they fall into two general categories, conspiracies of execution and conspiracies of concealment.Conspiracies of execution, at least on any kind of scale, are rare in American history. The nature of our national character and the openness of our political culture war against them.
Conspiracies of concealment are another matter. When officials fail in their duties and let, say, a president get shot, a plane get blown out of the sky, or a hijacker fly into a building, their first impulse is to conceal their mistakes. Such is human nature.To me, a “conspiracy theorist” is one who sees a conspiracy of execution where none could logically exist or who confuses a conspiracy of concealment with one of execution despite ample evidence to the contrary.Given this understanding, it is the rare “birther” who qualifies as a conspiracy theorist.
Few have conjured elaborate, impossible conspiracies on the scale Oliver Stone did in JFK or the French leftist Theirry Meyssan and others did with 9/11.Most birthers simply want to know where and when their president was born, a not unreasonable aspiration. Few insist that they know the answer. Despite my ample research, I do not know.All I do know is that the official story — the one Barack Obama trotted out in his memoir and both his convention speeches — is false. In my forthcoming book, Deconstructing Obama, I show in detail why this is so and what the alternatives might be.If there are conspiracy theorists involved…Excerpt Read more at americanthinker.com …
Dear Fellow Americans:Actually, not all of my fellow Americans. This letter is directed at a particular subset of Americans who manage to weave their way through life without the slightest concern or knowledge about the critical issues facing the country today. For you, “news gathering” consists of watching John Stewart’s “The Daily Show,” even as you remain undeterred by the fact that the network which broadcasts it is called Comedy Central.
Some of you are the kind of people who voted for Barack Obama because, as one of your herd put it to me, “all my friends voted for him.”Far be it from me to deny you your determination to remain willfully oblivious. It must be truly wonderful in some unfathomable sense to live a life consumed by tweeting every inanity that has ever popped into your head, or playing Beer Pong for hours on end. No doubt it is a source of great pride to have hundreds of “friends” on Facebook, or the latest, greatest 4G phone.You know who you are. You’re kind of Americans whose principal source of “historical” information is Hollywood movies such as Oliver Stone’s “JFK” or “Nixon.”
Your environmental “expertise” begins and ends will Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth.” Economics? “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.”Your reading material, for those of you who haven’t yet reached the conclusion that reading is for “nerds,” is dominated by magazines or internet sites dedicated to celebrity gossip or the latest trends and fashions. Your knowledge of the Constitution? Nil. “American Idol” and/or Kim Kardashian? Chapter and verse.Excerpt Read more at canadafreepress.com …
