More Subtle Propaganda from The New York Times

As the New York Times continues in "Warren Report Mode" (the Gray Lady published that pernicious document), its Cold War style journalistic blitzkrieg against Russia continues. (We note in passing that Russia is no longer Communist.) In an op-ed piece about the next target of supposed Russian aggression, the author casually ascribes the 1999 assassination of Armenian leaders, including the prime minister, to Russian conspiratorial process. In FTR #182, we noted the history of the Dashnags (there are various spellings). An Armenian fascist and ultra-nationalist group, the Dashnags collaborated with the Third Reich, Ukrainian fascist elements and the Christian Mobilizers of Gerald L.K. Smith. The latter was a prominent American fascist whose organization was among the ideological tributaries that fed the milieu of the Aryan Nations. Read more »

For The Record

The Assassination of RFK Reopened

Lis­ten (MP3): Side 1   Side 2  

Robert Kennedy’s assas­si­na­tion was not the work of a “lone nut,” any more than were the killings of his brother, Mar­tin Luther King and many oth­ers. Robert Kennedy was dis­patched by the same forces that killed his brother. The assas­si­na­tion of Robert F. Kennedy has been mov­ing toward a for­mal re-opening. In addi­tion to new sci­en­tific infor­ma­tion con­firm­ing that more than eight shots were fired (Sirhan’s gun only held eight), that the “girl in the polka dot dress” was real and indi­ca­tions that Sirhan was indeed hypno-programmed, a wit­ness has come for­ward claim­ing that there was more than one gun­man and that her pre­vi­ous tes­ti­mony was distorted.

Knock, Knock? Who’s There? Either a Strongbox or a Wall Safe. It’s Undecided. In this post we're going to take a look at the recent Supreme Court ruling on 4th amendment rights and smartphones and how this ruling could impact the ongoing debate over NSA spying. We're also going to look at the other side of the coin: the 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination during a time when encryption tools strong enough to thwart law enforcement and the NSA are becoming increasingly mainstream. Is encryption like a strongbox or a wall safe? You might be surprised by just how important that question has become. Read more »
