Music Video SELLING FUTURES posted at Truth Troubadour Channel on YouTube

Selling Futures reviews the many aspects and consequences of the complete takeover of US society by consolidated corporations and their attempt to globalize and militarize the entire world under the cover of “privatizing” resources and fighting a “war on terror”. Of course, as always, 9/11 Truth is an integral part of Vic's songs and videos. Eric Golub is featured on ukulele. The song was recorded by sound engineer/owner at Robot Envy Studio in Berkeley, CA.

Psywar

"If it is your desire to understand how we are manipulated into believing the things we do -- watch this film. Every American should see it...for the sake of our future."
- Timothy Gatto, fmr Chairman, Liberal Party of America

I'm pleased to present the first feature in my documentary series, entitled Psywar ("The real battlefield is the mind"). It premiered on Global Research and should be appearing on some other alternative news websites in the coming days.

The film explores the evolution of propaganda and public relations in the United States, with an emphasis on the “elitist theory of democracy” and the relationship between war, propaganda and class.

This is not a high budget affair, but was financed via a blue collar job, and is being released online for free. The interviews contained within are original and were conducted by proxy.

"Facts don't necessarily have the power to change our minds". (great article with enormous implications for 9/11 Truth))

Best Opinion: Boston Globe

"It's one of the great assumptions underlying modern democracy that an informed citizenry is preferable to an uninformed one," says Joe Keohane in The Boston Globe. "'Whenever the people are well-informed, they can be trusted with their own government,' Thomas Jefferson wrote in 1789." The firm American belief in this notion is at the heart of our democracy. We believe that "knowledge is the best remedy" to "ignorance and misinformation," and that if people have the facts they'll be "clearer thinkers and better citizens." Unfortunately, we may have been wrong all along. Here, an excerpt:

A letter writing campaign: REAL ID

All levels of government officials (state and federal) have a duty to protect the privacy of American citizens.
I hope you will be very vocal and supportive of the following message.

I urge you to support the repeal of the REAL ID Act and stop any further implementation of it; I am an American who cares about individual privacy and real national security. The creation of the national ID system is illegal:
1 - The law that created the Department of Homeland Security prohibited a national identification system (thus by trying to implement REAL ID, DHS is breaking the law and violating the public trust).
The REAL ID has real problems:
2 – REAL ID will create a system without adequate privacy and security safeguards: it will make it too easy for identity thieves, stalkers, and corrupt government officials to get access to such personal information as a home address, age, and Social Security number.
3 - It will also make it more difficult for people to get driver's licenses.
4 - The regulations endanger the privacy of domestic violence survivors' personal information, exposing them to stalkers in all 50 states.
This is very important:

A letter writing campaign: Rep. Jane Harman

[] As 9/11 truth multiplies in numbers and as activism increases the government is going to begin introducing Bills/Acts that try to undermine the constitution [mainly the Bill of Rights]. I am calling all Americans to ask for the resignation of Rep. Jane Harman for introducing H.R. 1955 [Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007]. I have provided a sample letter and encourage people to copy and paste if needed, add to or create their own original letter. I would also encourage people to send this letter to their representatives. []

I want 10, no 1,000, no 10,000 Americans to write Rep. Jane Harman about H.R. 1955 [Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007]

Rep. Jane Harman

H.R. 1955 [Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007]

I would like to jog your memory: you swore an oath to uphold and protect the constitution which is why I am appalled that you would introduce H.R. 1955 [Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007].

This Act is not only unconstitutional but, undercuts our [American] fundamental rights.

Upcoming Canadian election.

In the near future Canadians will be asked to choose a new government based on Canada's support of the Afghanistan mission. The Conservatives want to extend the open ended mission till 2011 and beyond. The Liberals want to change it to a peace keeping mission after one year and the Bloc Quebecois and the New Democrats want out completely.
You may have noticed that none of the above parties are questioning the validity or the justification of the mission. We all know it was undertaken as a result of 9/11 and we all know the official story of 9/11 has been proven a mass of lies and disinformation.
I realize that south of the 49th parallel, this is not news but I would like to urge concerned citizens in Canada as well as our friends around the world to use this opportunity to ask questions and demand answers of our elected representatives as well as journalists.
Here are a few I have come up with;
Why should young Canadian men and women fight and die on foreign soil for the cause of expanding the American empire?
Why should Canadian taxpayers bear the cost of advancing the American empire, while wealthy International Corporations enjoy the return on our investment?

The Year of Living Dangerously: Part Two of Two

An Absence of Will

Under constant manipulations, lies and propaganda, a nation of courage has become a nation of cowards. A nation that once questioned its leaders now falls lockstep behind them, blindly following criminality and corruption. A nation that once stood for protests, strikes, marches, sit-ins, challenging the government and seeking accountability now prefers sitting comfortably on couches or chairs, watching the world pass by through television sets or laptops, some becoming arm-chair activists, most simply rotting away their lives, preferring the life of a couch potato, passively ignoring the destruction of rights and freedoms, silently acquiescing to myriad number of crimes against humanity, and obediently shopping, purchasing and consuming according to the dictates of the corporatist world, their new god the Almighty Dollar commanding them to congregate at the Cathedrals of Consumerism, the Malls of Materialism, told to do their job and be good consumers, spending what little they have, even consuming with money that they do not have, and must therefore borrow.

Naomi Wolf - "There hasen't been a real investigation of 9/11."

"it's bad to have an untouchable area ( 9/11 questions ) in a democracy,." - Naomi Wolf

I know some of you have attacked her for not taking a solid 9/11 truth position,. however I belive that by not taking such a position she is reaching more people that would simple dismiss such a decided position and is indeed getting them to think about 9/11 and question it.

What are your thought?

Bill Maher; am I the lunatic because I ask questions, demand answers, and I do the research on 9/11?

Maher; “How big a lunatic do you have to be to watch two giant airliners packed with jet fuel slam into buildings on live TV, igniting a massive inferno that burned for two hours, and then think ‘well’ if you believe that was the cause, stop asking me to raise this ridiculous topic on the show and start asking your doctor if Paxil is right for you.”

How did the impact of the airliners and burning jet fuel cause WTC 1 & 2 to explode? How did the impacts of the airliners and burning jet fuel cause WTC 1 & 2 to fall at ‘free-fall’ speeds? How did the concrete pulverize into dust? How did isolated (low-heat fires) cause a total collapse? What about all the eye-witness hearing (feeling) bombs going off? You don’t find it odd that most of the steel was removed and destroyed soon after the event (I’m sure you heard a bit about removing and destroying evidence from a crime scene)? Seriously, what about WTC 7? You cannot use the whole ‘airliners and burning jet fuel’ on this one. How do isolated fires cause a steel-famed building to collapse into its own foot-print at ‘free-fall’ speeds?
You got a lot of explaining to do, Bill.

I’m the tin-foiled hat wearing conspiracy ‘the government is out to get us’ nut?

I got a bit of information for the people who simply cannot believe that the US government is malevolent; thus cannot, will not evaluate the evidence of 9/11.
The EPA knowingly lied and supported falsified research on the toxicity of the air after 9/11; thus putting people in danger.
The US government ordered the EPA to give the public misleading information (relived in 2003).
Memos written by US and local government officials show that they knew about the situation (toxicity of the air and the misleading of the public).
Memos show that Whitman (EPA administrator at the time) conspired with the White House to falsely reassure the NY public that the air was safe.

So, am I really that insane to think that the government is out to get me?

Dr. Frank Legge publishes article in the August volume of the Journal of 9/11 Studies

Dr. Frank Legge has published an excellent article “Conspiracy Theories, Myths, Skepticism, and 9/11: their Impact on Democracy” in the Journal of 9/11 Studies, today. It passed peer review prior to publication.

It begins thus: “Abstract: A discussion of conspiracy theories, myths and skepticism is presented. The importance of skepticism in a society in which myths may be deliberately created by authorities to manipulate the public is stressed. A range of methods of avoiding acceptance of myths, including application of the scientific method, is demonstrated using the events of 9/11. A clear understanding of events, unclouded by myths, is essential for the proper functioning of a democracy.

Key words: conspiracy, myth, skepticism, 9/11, democracy, propaganda, thermite, trans fats, cholesterol, PNAC, NIST, FEMA, EPA, Orwell

The Ghost in the Machine

Here is a wonderful article to send to family members and friends still under the delusion that the Bush administration is somehow interested in “freedom” and “democracy”.

Most articles on Strauss are either too short, too long or too cerebral for the average reader. This piece strikes a nice balance and states in plain language exactly what Strauss – and by extension, the neocons – are all about:

http://dissidentnews.wordpress.com/2007/01/27/straussism-the-neocon-philosophy-directing-the-age-of-tyranny-looking-glass-...

Bush seems to enjoy unwavering support by approximately one-quarter of the American population. This bloc is apparently comprised of confused Christian fundamentalists who believe Bush is a man of God, if not the son of God himself;) Yet the philosopher from whose beliefs the neocon agenda derives was anything but religious: he regarded religion in precisely the same manner as Marx. Well almost: “Marx called religion the opium of the people, Strauss thought the people needed their opium.”
