Does O.J. Simpson’s Life Matter?

The crim­i­nal and civ­il tri­als of O.J. Simp­son cap­ti­vat­ed the pub­lic aware­ness, yet the facts con­firm­ing, beyond doubt, O.J.‘s inno­cence were obscured by a blitzkrieg of media-assist­ed and gen­er­at­ed dis­in­for­ma­tion. Sup­ple­ment­ing the medi­a’s insti­tu­tion­al­ized lying was a grotesque dis­tor­tion of the record and out­right crim­i­nal behav­ior by ele­ments of the Los Ange­les legal estab­lish­ment. The very issues at the fore­front of the unrest over race and polic­ing were front and cen­ter in the case of Mark Fuhrman, yet the same pub­lic that is up in arms–literally–over George Floyd, Bre­an­na Tay­lor et al took no notice of the facts in the Simp­son case. Take a half hour to lis­ten to the linked autio of FTR #39, about Mark Fuhrman. Why was­n’t there more dis­cus­sion of this?

“They Are All Bound on The Wheel . . . .” Reflections on The Death of George Floyd and Its Aftermath

My feel­ings about the George Floyd killing and its after­math are best expressed in a poem I have read on a num­ber of pro­grams. In FTR #46, I detailed the assas­si­na­tion of Mar­tin Luther King. The research in FTR #46, in turn, updat­ed infor­ma­tion pre­sent­ed on the 17th anniver­sary of the assas­si­na­tion of Dr. King more than a decade ear­li­er. Two years ago, when doing ten hours of pro­gram­ming about Dr. King’s mur­der on the 50th anniver­sary of that event, I was struck by the utter pas­siv­i­ty and silence, not just on the part of the main­stream media, but on the part of the African-Amer­i­can com­mu­ni­ty, as well as the so-called “pro­gres­sive sec­tor.” How can peo­ple who have acqui­esced in the cold-blood­ed assas­si­na­tion of Amer­i­ca’s most promi­nent civ­il rights leader at the hands of pow­er­ful ele­ments of gov­ern­ment man­i­fest sur­prise or out­rage at Floy­d’s death? Per­haps it is because “They are all bound on the wheel . . . .”

Snowden’s Ride, Part 7: Citizen Greenwald, The National Alliance and The Underground Reich

In our last post, we high­light­ed Green­wald’s five-year long rep­re­sen­ta­tion of Matthew Hale, head of the World Church of the Cre­ator. In addi­tion to Hale, Green­wald also rep­re­sent­ed a con­sor­tium of neo-Naz­i/White Suprema­cist groups, includ­ing the Nation­al Alliance. Accused of incit­ing fol­low­ers to racist vio­lence, The Nation­al Alliance was defend­ed by Green­wald in order to pre­serve their right to free speech. Nation­al Alliance books are specif­i­cal­ly craft­ed to incite mur­der and ter­ror­ism. Nation­al Alliance head William Luther Pierce net­worked with Nazis in Latin Amer­i­ca, as did the ter­ror­ist group The Order, which his work inspired. UPDATED ON 7/20/2013, 7/29/2013.

Collusion Between White Supremacist Gangs and Corrections Officers?

We’ve been cov­er­ing the cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing the mur­ders of a Texas DA and his wife. Now, we learn that some cor­rec­tions offi­cers have been col­lud­ing with ele­ments of the Aryan Broth­er­hood of Texas. One thing that sug­gests itself is the pos­si­bil­i­ty that field intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­cat­ed by cor­rec­tions offi­cers in league with the white suprema­cists may have been used in the killings.

Celebrating Hitler’s Birthday at Littleton, Colorado

Home of Columbine mas­sacre, Lit­tle­ton Col­orado had a white man plant­i­ng a bomb on Hitler’s birth­day. Columbine High mas­sacre in that city result­ed from a con­spir­a­cy, prob­a­bly includ­ing Nazi ele­ments in stu­dent body and local law enforce­ment.

GOP Rhetoric Associating Obama and Tiger Woods

Com­ment: In FTR #702, we touched on the Tiger Woods imbroglio and spec­u­la­tion that psy­cho­log­i­cal asso­ci­a­tion between Woods and Obama–what research psy­chol­o­gists call “stim­u­lus generalization”–may have under­lain that case. Recent­ly, Gov­er­nor Tim Pawlenty–viewed as a pos­si­ble 2012 GOP pres­i­den­tial candidate–directly ref­er­enced that asso­ci­a­tion. “CPAC 2010 Updates:Latest News, Video from Con­ser­v­a­tive Polit­i­cal Action Con­fer­ence”; Sam Stein, […]

Tiger Woods’ Mother-in-Law Accused of Sheltering War Criminals

Com­ment: Although there is MUCH more inves­ti­gat­ing to be done, it is inter­est­ing to view the “decon­struc­tion” of Tiger Woods’ pub­lic per­sona in light of the O.J. Simp­son case. (Simp­son’s fol­lies in con­nec­tion with his Las Vegas con­vic­tion notwith­stand­ing, there  is a mon­u­men­tal amount of excul­pa­to­ry evi­dence that received lit­tle or no pub­lic­i­ty.
