As Project Censored states in their 2011 Book, we are in a crisis that may well be described as a "Truth Emergency". This has been a deep problem for US society for many years. However, it most certainly got accelerated after the exploitation of the 9/11 attacks to promote war, surveillance, and a new wave of repressive laws named in Orwellian fashion as the so-called "Patriot Act".
Are you aware that the King family took a civil suit into a Memphis court in 1999 with William Pepper as their lawyer? They presented numerous witnesses who had been steadfastly avoided by the Memphis police and government investigators. Are you aware of any of the following information? If not, why not? If yes, will you be getting this information out as part of your 2011 observance of the life and legacy of Martin Luther King? Read on please...
William Pepper is a legendary American author, British barrister, and King family lawyer. Martin Luther King contacted William Pepper after reading an article Pepper had written in Ramparts magazine about the effects of the Vietnam War on the children of Vietnam. He invited Pepper to speak to his congregation, which was the beginning of a life-long friendship with MLK and his family. William Pepper continued to investigate the assassination of MLK for years, and he represented the King family in court.
The King family and William Pepper got considerable criticism in the mainstream press for stating that they did not believe that James Earl Ray was the killer of King. In 1999 they won a trial in a Memphis, Tennessee court from a jury of six whites and six blacks. They won a unanimous conviction of Loyd Jowers and “unnamed government conspirators” for the murder of Martin Luther King. King was executed in broad daylight at the Lorraine Motel on April 4, 1968. Jowers was the owner of Jim’s Grill across the street from the Lorraine Motel where some of the assassination planning was done. Jowers and waitresses from that era gave testimony that persuaded the American jury that there was a “conspiracy” to execute Dr King. William Pepper later wrote a book about the trial and the lack of fair or even any media coverage in the case of their victory. William Pepper’s book is called “An Act of State: The Execution of Martin Luther King”.
I wrote a song to highlight some of the facts revealed in the trial and the book. Then I made a video for it and posted it on YouTube. Have you watched it? The lyrics are below...

One way to be true to the dream and the commitment of the Rev Dr King would be to get this information out into the sunlight of public discussion as part of this year's celebration of who he really was! He would be marching stalwartly on Obama's White House and on the now Republican controlled US Congress. The book is in public libraries. Here is a link to a free mp3 download of the song.

Vic Sadot Song from "Berkeley Calling" on Last FM
"I'm constantly annoyed that people are distracted by false conspiracies such as 9/11, when all around we provide evidence of real conspiracies, for war or mass financial fraud." Julian Asange, Wikileaks, July 19 (Image right)
John Young was one of the co-founders of Wikileaks. He quickly left the organization in disagreement with some of its policies (CNET). Young was a natural choice for Wikileaks since he has operated a leak website, CRYPTOME, since 1996. His site just released two articles on July 31 attributed to Wikileaks' Julian Assange (firstname.lastname@example.org). The announcement read:
"This is one thing that I was going to wait awhile before we talked about, but maybe we'll talk about it now so you can think about it, because you all, we all, have to make some kind of plans for ourselves. It's a free world we live in here. That doesn't mean that anything goes, what that means is we're going to put the truth up here for all to see.
"Now, let's face the situation. We've millions and millions of people awakening to the truth. Many, many more than some had dreamt or thought would be possible. We're going to need each other to help each other to work this out, because we're taxing the very systems that we as a society have constructed.
"We're going to be bringing out the information. But, the one major thing you have to remember from here out, when you go back out to the wilderness to go to sleep or if you stay here to learn more, is that the man next to you is your brother. And you damn well better treat each other that way because if you don't, then we blow the whole thing, but we've got it, right there."

Key October Surprise Evidence Hidden
By Robert Parry (A Special Report)
May 6, 2010
A Russian government report, which corroborated allegations that Ronald Reagan’s presidential campaign interfered with President Jimmy Carter’s Iran-hostage negotiations in 1980, was apparently kept from the Democratic chairman of a congressional task force that investigated the charges a dozen years later.
Lee Hamilton, then a congressman from Indiana in charge of the task force, told me in a recent interview, “I don’t recall seeing it,” although he was the one who had requested Moscow’s cooperation in the first place and the extraordinary Russian report was addressed to him.
I posted the new Deception Dollars on Facebook, and my friend Meridith, who lives in NYC, wrote.
You will not let go of this, will you?
To which I replied:
Well the murderers would like me to, but the crime has never been solved. Murderers usually like it when the investigation of a crime is covered up, and that fact itself is largely ignored. I'm not interested in doing things that mass murderers would approve of, even if it occasionally annoys people who, like them, would rather the matter be quietly left to drop.
If it weren't for the fact that the 9/11 crime led to two other much bigger crimes (wars), where people continue to be killed without justification every single day, while we sit here comfortably in the seat of power that's causing all the mayhem, than maybe I could "let it go".
I knew of Barry Jennings and Dan Wallace, but I didn't realize there were so many other 9/11 eyewitnesses or family members who challenged the official story only to meet an early death.
The Ultimate proof NIST is lying about WTC7 Over 1,000 Professional Architects and Engineers agree that the mysterious collapses of WTC Building 7 and the Twin Towers on 9/11/01 need to be re-examined and investigated. The NIST report is proven to be unscientific and false, using evidence NIST either ignored or gathered and used itself.

The underpants bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, is a curious terrorist. He became disillusioned with his privileged life as the son of a bank chairman and member of the Nigerian elite, it would seem. Rather than pursuing his studies in London, he retreated to Yemen to learn the ways of al Qaeda inspired terrorism.
Farouk was so indiscreet that his father reported him to the U.S. Embassy as a potential terrorist in November. A month later, he managed to get on a jumbo jet headed for Detroit to complete a terror mission. Despite his training in engineering at the prestigious London School of Economics, Farouk failed in his mission. He couldn't mix his explosives to achieve the desired effect. He apparently forgot to detonate the explosive device in mid flight, waiting until just before landing in Detroit to start his task. He retrieved and set off the chemicals to create the explosion in full view of passengers.
What kind of terrorist is this? He doesn't know when, how or where to conduct his criminal enterprise.

Countdown: Detroit bomber intel failure: ‘Conspiracy or cock up?’
By Diana Sweet
Tuesday, January 5th, 2010 -- 7:55 am
On Monday evening's edition of MSNBC's Countdown with host Keith Olbermann, guest Richard Wolffe discusses the nation's intelligence gathering associated with the Flight 253 'underpants bomber,' Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, and serious questions that have risen about whether or not there was foul play, information intentionally withheld, or a conspiracy involved.
Wolffe is a journalist, MSNBC political analyst, and author of the Barack Obama book Renegade: The Making of a President.
Earlier today, my dear friend Edward accused me of “spitting in the face of American citizens who were truly affected by the 9/11 terrorist attacks” since I am publicly demanding a real investigation into exactly what happened in our country on September 11, 2001. While Edward is a pretty smart guy most of the time, lately he has been getting a few things dead wrong. The point of this blog is to help Edward, and others, discover that they are actually the ones “spitting in the face of American citizens who were truly affected by the 9/11 terrorist attacks” through their deafening silence and blind faith in the U.S. Government and Mainstream Media. To clarify this point, let’s learn a little more about the families who lost loved ones that fateful September morning.

Indian Probe Blames Mosque Attack on Hindu Leaders
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Published: November 24, 2009
Filed at 12:19 p.m. ET
NEW DELHI (AP) -- An Indian government investigation released Tuesday into the 1992 demolition of a mosque by a raging mob reportedly accused top Hindu nationalist politicians of complicity in the attack that sparked nationwide ethnic riots, leaving 2,000 people dead.
The scathing report, handed to parliament 17 years after the attack, exposed the painful religious divide plaguing a nation that prides itself as a model of a multiethnic, secular democracy.
Lori Price is monitoring reports on the Fort Hood shooting. Many media reports have only mentioned Maj. Nidal Hasan as the shooter; however, others have reported:
"A second gunman is in custody after a shooting at the Army's Fort Hood in Texas in which at least seven people were killed and 12 wounded, reports KCEN-TV of Waco. The report comes about two hours after a first suspect was captured, shortly after gunfire broke out. Authorities say the gunmen were dressed in fatigues, though it's not confirmed whether they are military personnel."
"A senior officer who was playing golf Thursday near Fort Hood, Texas, told CNN he witnessed the arrest of one of the two surviving suspects of the shooting at the Army installation."
"Federal law enforcement officials say the suspected Fort Hood, Texas, shooter had come to their attention at least six months ago because of Internet postings that discussed suicide bombings and other threats."
"42 people shot by Army psychiatrist, promoted to Army Major in May. 12 killed; 30 wounded --US Official: Shooter was Major Malik Nadal Hasan"
Fort Hood Shooting 'Oddities'
Let me begin by expressing my gratitude and respect for your honorable decision to turn up the heat on this evil conspiracy which has invaded our country from within our own borders. You are a very brave man, and deserve the respect of every true blooded American citizen!
Conspiracy, Inc.: Wild Tales From the Reactionary Right
You can't even provide a reasonable definition of "conspiracy" in your mindless call to ignorance. I also strongly detest your guilt by association approach, as if we are all alike, all incredible, all in the same category because you say so. The smear that people who call out government complicity and cover-up must be from the "reactionary right" is worthy of the drooling neanderthals you hoped to lampoon.
If you had a dictionary handy, you might have learned that conspiracy is any crime involving multiple parties. It's one of the most prosecuted charges in the US by the justice department (sic).
We are to take it -- from you -- a priori that the government never commits crimes. People in the white house, for example, never agree to break the law.
Large mountains of empirical evidence dispute this "theory" you posit. Your position is laughable on its face, of course, and your rant is gibberish.

Largest Iraq bombing in two years may have been inside job
By David Edwards and Daniel Tencer
Tuesday, October 27th, 2009 -- 9:50 am
Sunday's twin suicide bombings in Baghdad that killed at least 155 people and wounded 500 others may have had help from within Iraq's security apparatus, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow reported Monday.
"This was a really well coordinated attack on an area in Baghdad that's supposed to be well protected," Maddow told viewers. "In order to reach their targets, the bombers driving these truck bombs had to pass through several checkpoints that were guarded by security forces and those security forces were supposed to be using hand-held devices designed to detect explosives."
