“The CIA owns everyone of any significance in the major media.” – William Colby, former CIA director
“We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.” – William Casey, CIA Director (from first staff meeting, 1981)
“Deception is a state of mind and the mind of the State.” – James Angleton, head of CIA counter intelligence from 1954-1974
“I never would have agreed to the formulation of the Central Intelligence Agency back in forty-seven, if I had known it would become the American Gestapo.” – Harry S. Truman
“The individual is handicapped by coming face-to-face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists.” – J. Edgar Hoover, ex-FBI director on the New World Order conspiracy
“If the American people knew what we have done, they would string us up from the lamp posts.” – George H. W. Bush (helped assassinate JFK)
” I will splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it into the winds.” – John F. Kennedy
“There is no such thing, at this date of the world’s history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar weekly salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone. The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth; to lie outright; to pervert; to vilify; to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities, and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.” – John Swinton, former New York Times Chief of Staff
THIS IS THE NEWS
"MURDER! RAPE! BLOOD! WAR!
delivered daily to your door!
DEATH and MAYHEM! FILM AT 4:00!"
The News will keep you well informed!
Good news is never fit to print;
Bad News Headlines make a mint!
The Press make sure you'll get upset
each time you watch your TV set.
"IT ISN'T SAFE TO WALK THE STREETS"
"STAY AT HOME BENEATH YOUR SHEETS!"
"CRIMINALS LURK ANYWHERE YOU LOOK!"
It must be true…. it was printed in a book!
"WE NEED MORE GUNS AND THOUGHT POLICE".
"THE WORLD WILL NEVER BE AT PEACE".
"DRUGS AND CRIME ARE EVERYWHERE".
The Press makes sure that we're “aware”….
Shocking love-life exposes!
Who will they prosecute today?
"THE PUBLIC HAS THE RIGHT TO TRUTH".
The Press will judge and execute!
Is Free Speech an equal right?
Only for those with financial might
to pay the advertising fees.
The Press is told who to appease.
Lies and rumors, the "news" abounds -
they'll make it up when there’s none around.
"The truth be damned! I'm a reporter…
It's my job to cause disorder"!
Like l0bsters in a bubbling pot
who claw and pull to reach the top -
free from miserable despair,
The Press is boiling you in fear!
Every day we all begin
a bright new hopeful day.
Life's a game we all can win.
It's lots of fun to play.
Wake up! Don' get sucked in!
Reporters wearing pearly grins
tell you that life's all bad;
The Press are all completely mad!
Turn off your TV! Enjoy your day.
In spite of what "the experts" say,
there is no need to be afraid.
Live and Love another day!
A poem by Lawrence R. Spencer. 2013
