S. 729: A bill to prohibit the use of funds to Federal agencies to establish a panel, task force, advisory committee, or other effort to challenge the scientific consensus on climate change, and for other purposes. (Bill that is currently on the senate calendar) by i_cansmellthat in Collusion

Yes, I understand this proposed bill is prohibiting funds, not speech or study. But doesn't science seek truth, and in so shouldn't a scientific claim seek information from all sides, especially when policy is being decided on a new frontier? By excluding funded study, they are excluding research that could produce possible solutions. Instead they are taking a side and shutting opposing views out. No matter where one stands in the debate, this bill doesn't seek truth.

Interesting... I had no idea regarding the worth of the NFL teams in comparison, granted I don't care for sports, but OMG they're entertainers really, and they're that big??? Woah.

Yes, also the 1996 telecommunications act was also big, it allowed for TV news media to be able to legally lie without repercussion, along with lifting several other truth-telling provisions.

I believe the anti-trust laws began to disappear during the Clinton Administration. Before that happened, government was much more strict about the ownership of newspapers, radio, and TV stations so that one political faction could not own all or a high percentage of media in one area. Of course, now they are 90% owned by the same people who control our government representatives. Guess who? Bring back the anti-trust laws and break up the massive corporations mentioned in the article.

Show Notes:


Abel Danger Published on Sep 18, 2013

Bones John Kerry and his brethren bloodlines.

Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt is an American whistleblower and freelance writer who served as the Senior Policy Advisor in the Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI), U.S. Department of Education, during the first term of U.S. President Ronald Reagan, and staff employee of the U.S. Department of State (South Africa, Belgium, South Korea). She was born in 1930 and attended Dana Hall preparatory school and Katharine Gibbs College in New York City, where she studied business. Iserbyt's father and grandfather were Yale University graduates and members of the Skull and Bones secret society.

She is known for writing the book The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America. The book reveals that changes gradually brought into the American public education system work to eliminate the influences of a child's parents (religion, morals, national patriotism), and mold the child into a member of the proletariat in preparation for a socialist-collectivist world of the future. She says that these changes originated from plans formulated primarily by the Andrew Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Education and Rockefeller General Education Board, and details the psychological methods used to implement and effect the changes.

In an interview concerning secret societies and the elite agenda she disclosed that in the early 1980s she had a chance to meet with Norman Dodd who had been the chief investigator for the United States House Select Committee to Investigate Tax-Exempt Foundations and Comparable Organizations commonly known as the B. Carroll Reece Committee. In the video interview she claims that Dodd discussed a 'network' of individuals including Carnegie who planned to bring about world peace by means of rapid changes in society. These changes would be brought about by involving the populace in various wars and military conflicts. She further claimed that Dodd had discussions with Rowan Gaither, the president of the Ford Foundation in which he revealed that directives from the President of the United States compelled foundations related to the Ford Foundation to direct their funding into bringing about the merger of the USA with the Soviet Union.

Mr. Dodd, all of us here at the policy making level of the foundation have at one time or another served in the OSS (the Office of Strategic Services, the forerunner of the CIA) or the European Economic Administration, operating under directives from the White House. We operate under those same directives... The substance of the directives under which we operate is that we shall use our grant making power to so alter life in the United States that we can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union.

— Rowan Gaither, President Ford Foundation - 1953, Norman Dodd - friend of Iserbyt

I wonder if their bank accounts have to be disclosed in both countries, or if they have to pay taxes twice?

Maybe that is the reason so much American tax money is given to Israel, a citizen of Israel potentially benefits from an influx of money, and they are citizens.

How is it that an elected official that decides legislation does not have to disclose any dual citizenship? Not only are members of congress not required to disclose dual citizenship, they are protected from FOIA inquiries to protect their privacy.

I like clear lists with bite.

@ /u/magnora7 /u/d3rr

If you want... Make a new list with good citation(s), date(s), and concise clear statement(s) to include on it, and I can make it into some kind of graphic for you.

Maybe https://www.opensecrets.org/ can help?

Further, I'll make other graphics too should you find something worthy of punching up with.

Also, I've been thinking about doing a short SaidIt promotional animation, like a meme gif or 15 second spot - one that can be built upon in layers, etc. This minor project could be a test run template for fine tuning the semi-democratic interactive process for my 2 major projects.

I was hoping to do a TFH podcast opening animation but after Sam and I discussed it for a while he decided he didn't want to be indebted to me even though I said there were no strings attached, other than I wanted a cut of potential sales from my work, assuming he'd use my imagery for his webstore. The details of that weren't even close to materialized.

I didn't want to push my "agenda" on him but I never even got to play my ace idea. I wanted him to tell me what he wanted so I could work with it and we'd get 100% satisfaction. If he didn't have any ideas I would have pulled these references out - and while our last call ended amicably I've always regretted not showing him my concept.

Imagine something like these two videos but waaaaay shorter with conspiracy/news imagery instead of what's used.

Animation references :

In addition to those videos I also wanted to show him these symmetrical meditation images :

And much blander to weakest:

Most of those last searches suck, but there are little seeds of ideas to mine for within.

Suitable images to be actually be sourced will require more detailed research for specific functionality and meaningful purpose.

I have no music in mind nor have I thought on any narrative nor themes.

However I have two more ideas to consider. 1) Something(s) loopable, in part or in whole. 2) Something(s) unveiling, opened (eyes, doors, books, chests, etc), unhidden, revealing, and/or layering.

Google Image search for "loop gifs"

One of my faves: Google Image search for "loop gifs Sauron"

I don't give a fuck about sampling and/or copyright limits. The rules are rigged for the corporatocracy and us little guys have no recourse when our work is stolen, and mine has been. Further, I feel our manufactured culture is a shared one they've imposed on us so we have a right to rework and share it. If I could credit all the little guy artists I would.

I can edit/mashup music tracks to shorten and capture their essence. I have posted some faves with an "Open Your Eyes" theme. I've been screengrabbing images with themes from movies for future reference. For another shelved project I was going to assemble lots of movie scenes with characters opening their eyes, set to music. I'd shelved it because it felt too bland and generic without stating anything specific. It may be a good slogan for a SaidIt campaign, which is about all things and nothing in particular too. Maybe this would be an easier more suitable first effort.

I don't know how yet, but for all of these little projects I'd like to release them in two stages - the first would be the "SaidIt" version with the logo, etc embedded in the video, hopefully in some clever way(s). The second stage a year later, would be to opensource release it without the SaidIt branding for others to freely use.

I'd also appreciate a link to the best quality SaidIt logo file (vector?) and/or font.

I'm still getting over a flu but I hope to be back on my game soon.

Also for reference, I splurged and got my folks the 3 books by David Dees for Xmas.

I don't know how many Republicans are CIA too.

Well since George Bush Sr. ran the CIA for a while, I would say quite a lot.

I agree the list might be biased, I didn't make it. I'd sure love a more well-verified list.
