The corrupt state-corporate media has been faced with a dual task this week in paying homage to the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy while hammering home the official state-endorsed explanation of the deranged lone gunman as his killer. Throw in the ongoing mockery of any who dare to question a government and media that lies about absolutely everything with the pejorative of “conspiracy theorist” and you have another fine example of how the American mainstream media has zero credibility with anyone who possesses the ability to think critically in late 2013. We have seen it repeatedly that the media only exists to peddle lies and propaganda of the rogue state, whether it be providing cover for the out of control NSA Stasi, pushing the war porn of dying children gassed at Ghouta to promote a war on Syria, relegating such suspicious deaths as that of journalist Michael Hastings to the memory hole, the blown up 60 Minutes Benghazi hoax and now working on selling a war on Iran the media is an institution that exists to obfuscate and hide the truth.
With all of the stories written on this gala anniversary week those that continue to smear anyone who questions the official state conspiracy theory of the JFK assassination as crazies or worse are illustrative of the utter dreck that has come to pass for American reportage. Despite more Americans today not believing that the patsy Lee Harvey Oswald was solely responsible for blowing Kennedy’s head off that November day a half century ago the state has much invested in the continued promulgating of the “lone gunman” explanation. I actually saw a piece that slyly compared doubters of the official state story to those who believed that the moon landing was staged. This is a dastardly tactic of diversion and discrediting by association that is a common line of attack for the pocket media defenders of the liars and thieves in high places.
Tarring skeptics and critics of a government that lies about absolutely everything anymore as “tin foil hatters” and “conspiracy theorists” completely dismisses the simple fact that there are indeed always legitimate government as well as private conspiracies. The very definition of “conspiracy” according to Merriam-Webster being that it is “the act of secretly planning to do something that is harmful or illegal”, in this rotting to the core society these are commonplace, daily endeavors. But the state-corporate media would lead one to believe that political assassinations are never the result of such things yet considering the level of formal education that it takes to ascend to the propaganda parrot level in the disinformation machine one would think that at some point during their college careers that they would have learned of the assassination of Julius Caesar. Nothing quite demeans like the denunciation of “conspiracy theorist” applied as a scarlet letter to those who dare to ask the inconvenient questions and it has become so commonplace that it is practically a knee-jerk reaction used to slime those seeking the truth. Former Reagan Treasury official turned relentless critic of the post 9/11 fascist transformation Paul Craig Roberts put it quite well in a column from a few years back:
While we were not watching, conspiracy theory has undergone Orwellian redefinition.
A “conspiracy theory” no longer means an event explained by a conspiracy. Instead, it now means any explanation, or even a fact, that is out of step with the government’s explanation and that of its media pimps.
For example, online news broadcasts of RT have been equated with conspiracy theories by the New York Times simply because RT reports news and opinions that the New York Times does not report and the US government does not endorse.
In other words, as truth becomes uncomfortable for government and its Ministry of Propaganda, truth is redefined as conspiracy theory, by which is meant an absurd and laughable explanation that we should ignore.
When piles of carefully researched books, released government documents, and testimony of eye witnesses made it clear that Lee Harvey Oswald was not President John F. Kennedy’s assassin, the voluminous research, government documents, and verified testimony was dismissed as “conspiracy theory.”
In other words, the truth of the event was unacceptable to the authorities and to the Ministry of Propaganda that represents the interests of authorities.
There is really no point in rehashing the possibilities of who actually was been behind the killing of Kennedy, the man had made powerful enemies aplenty any and all of whom wanted him dead. What can be stated is that the ambush and the murder of the President of the United States in broad daylight among thousands of people took a serious set of stones, precision planning, influence with local authorites as well as elements of the national government and was not the random act of an amateurish loser with a communist sympathies and an ax to grind. The murder of Kennedy sent a message and bore the traits of a precision operation that only serious professionals could pull off. With the elevation of Lyndon Baines Johnson to the presidency once the king of Camelot was dead the die was cast for an escalation in Southeast Asia that would bring home the enduring tragedy of the Vietnam War. As has been made brutally apparent in the twenty first century there is much money to be made when dealing in death and all of its ancillary enterprises, it was no different in the 1960s and fortunes were made, power consolidated and national morality cast aside with the bloodbath in Nam. Much of it still resonates to this day such a catastrophic wound it was to the national psyche and character.
But let there be no argument that Kennedy’s death paved the way for the assumption of total control of foreign policy by the Military Industrial Complex (that President Eisenhower ominously warned of in his farewell speech) to escalate the Vietnam War and declare war on the American public who dissented with the immorality of that damned war and took to the streets in protest. Their efforts would shake the very foundations of this nation’s corrupted institutions, terrify the ruling elite classes and create a climate where any means necessary to control domestic unrest would be utilized lest the existing order be toppled.
If one has ever seen the Zapruder film it is obvious that the killshot did not come from the rear and the school book depository where Oswald was allegedly shooting from a window, through a tree and at a moving target with a piece of shit mail order rifle.
Who are you going to believe? The media or your own lying eyes?
