Yellow Journalism At It’s Finest

I enjoy watching and listening to alternative media—this includes podcasts and late night radio shows. One of my favorites is Ground Zero with Clyde Lewis.

Clyde is outspoken and has provoked some pretty powerful people in the past. He has received death threats and even had a close call with a car bomb. He has no qualms mentioning these facts on his show, but so far, remains vague as to who threatened him.

I mention this fact to illustrate how important the first amendment rights are to Clyde. You might even say its a hot button for him.

So, when Brandon Turbeville, wrote an article on antimedia.org about a publication just released by the Pentagon that seemed to be targeting journalists, of course it caught Clyde’s attention.

According to Brandon, within the document, journalists were being labeled Unprivileged Belligerents, an odd phrase at least, but chilling in its deeper meaning.

So, Brandon Turbeville was booked for an interview on Ground Zero.

When the interview with Brandon Turbeville started I was all ears. I listened for the document’s title and a website where it can be downloaded. I was thinking that this would make an interesting blog post. I continued to listen as I downloaded the file, all 1200 pages.

Clyde and Brandon were discussing this document as if freedom of the press was being stomped on. Journalists were being marginalized. Here were two journalists, one a broadcaster, the other a writer, watching, what they deemed to be, the end to freedom of the press, free speech.

I never write an article until I do some research. And this would be no different. I was not going to take Brandon Turbeville’s word as gospel.

The first thing I did was perform a key word search in the document. Since it is a PDF file, that’s a very simple task. I searched for ‘journalist’ I got several hits and read all the sections that were flagged.

I kept looking for something nefarious. I didn’t find it.

But what I did discover was surprising, and a bit disappointing, to say the least. There was no story here. At least not the one that Brandon was telling.

The real story wasn’t in the document at all. The real story was playing out on the radio as I listened. Clyde Lewis was being lead down a rabbit hole, and didn’t even know it.

I don’t know if Brandon Turbeville is stupid or clever. But this man used Clyde Lewis’ radio program to get his 15 minutes of shame. There was all this hubbub over a document, yet, all it says about journalists are the differences between embedded journalists, military journalists, and independent journalists. It also explains what rights each category has under the Geneva Convention in time of war.

The term, Unprivileged Belligerent, on which Clyde and Brandon based their whole conversation, isn’t even describing a journalist. It is the term for someone pretending to be a journalist so he can blow up stuff and kill people.

If anyone was pretending to be a journalist, it’s Brandon Turbeville. Was he out to kill the credibility of Clyde Lewis?

Gentlemen, I believe we have discovered an Unprivileged Belligerent in our ranks!

But don’t take my word for it. Search the document yourself.

A Former Believer Defects

I was a child of the sixties. This was a time when TV was broadcast in black and white. It was a time when we trusted our government and respected men like Walter Cronkite, Chet Huntley, and David Brinkley to give us the news each night.

When the president made an important speech, all three TV channels would interrupt regularly scheduled programming and broadcast the speech. The President’s picture would appear above the fold, on page 1 of every newspaper the next morning.

So, in 1961, when President Kennedy said, “I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth,” the nation saw and heard that speech on TV, or read about it the next day in the newspaper.

My Dad has always been a huge fan of the NASA programs, especially the Apollo missions. So it was natural that our entire family was glued to the only TV in the house, when eight years later, regularly scheduled programming was interrupted again for another speech.

But this time it wasn’t a president speaking on the White House lawn. No, this speech was given by an astronaut, standing on the surface of the moon. “One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind”

America had landed on the moon! It was a bittersweet accomplishment. President Kennedy did not live to see his goal come to fruition, but WE, had won the space race!

Or had we?

For decades I have been annoyed by those who said we didn’t really go to the moon. In my opinion these people were nut jobs and wore tin foil hats. I never took them seriously. However, as the  years ticked by I softened my opinion of them and began to listen to their arguments. This year, I’ve considered getting one of those tinfoil hats.

Why, after so many years, am I beginning to doubt that we ever went to the moon? The debunkers analyze the pictures that the astronauts supposedly took on the moon. They discuss things like shadows pointing in different directions as if there were two light sources instead of one (the sun). They also claim that using certain tools they can prove that the hills in the background were much closer than they should have been and were probably a backdrop.

In response to these photography anomalies, I have always countered with agreement that it is possible that these photos were taken on Earth. They could have been taken during practice drills held in the desert. And of course they would have to practice taking photographs. These practice photographs could have been substituted for the real thing in the likely event that the camera or film itself was damaged during the trip. So, it wasn’t the debunkers that finally won me over. I’m a really hard sell.

I recently watched a NASA produced video, narrated by Kelly Smith, a NASA engineer, discussing a future manned mission to Mars, I tuned in to learn about the challenges this mission faced. The moon was not on my mind at all, but what he said was very pertinent to the Apollo missions. And what he revealed, hit me square between the eyes.

According to Kelly, one of the biggest hurdles for a Mars mission, is not associated with Mars at all, but Earth. It’s an aspect of our own planet that is keeping us from taking that trip to Mars. Kelly didn’t say that it would have also prevented us from going to the Moon, but it surely would have. And that was when I realized the trips to the moon were all faked.

You see, there are these inconvenient barriers known as the Van Allen Radiation Belts. Scientists are trying to figure out how they will safely send astronauts through this layer of electromagnetic radiation that surrounds our planet. The amount of lead shielding needed to protect humans and machines would make the rocket too heavy to leave the launch pad

So, how did we do it in the 1960’s? Is the Van Allen Belt a new phenomena? No, its been there all along as far as we know. It was discovered several years before the first Apollo Mission. It get’s its name from James Van Allen, the American physicist who discovered this radiation barrier in 1958, 11 years before we were convinced that our astronauts first stepped on the moon.

Why is the Van Allen Belt such a problem? As, NASA engineer, Kelly Smith states in the video, The level of radiation in the Van Allen Belts are deadly to humans and will cause havoc with the instrumentation on board any spaceship.

NASA is looking for a solution, and will eventually figure it out, but this admission can only mean that no astronaut has ever traveled through the Van Allen Belts, otherwise they would already have a solution to this problem. Or there be no concern, since we have proof that it was not harmful to humans— most of the Apollo astronauts lived long and productive lives. I’m sorry, but if NASA is concerned about the Van Allen Belts it means no manned spaceship went to the moon. And it may be that even the unmanned trips to the moon and Mars never happened either.

This reality hits me to my core, but I now feel confident in saying that no human has ever walked on the moon. Everything was faked and staged. I’m almost ready to say that the unmanned missions were faked, too. We have been spoon fed Hollywood sound stage productions.  All the astronauts that we are to believe flew to the moon couldn’t get there and back without taking two trips through the deadly Van Allen Belts. And yet most of them lived to a ripe old age. Someone is lying and it’s not  Kelly Smith, the NASA scientist in the video that you can watch for yourself, below

This video is seven minutes long and very informative, but you can skip to the 3:00 minute mark to hear just the part about the Van Allen Belts

We should all be angry about this. NASA spent over 100 Billion dollars of taxpayers’ money to fake the Apollo missions alone. It angers and saddens me to have to say that. But there is no other explanation that I can find.

May 2, 2011, My First Thought— FAKE!

Bin Laden died of disease in 2006
— A former CIA Agent

via “Bin Laden died of disease in 2006” – former CIA agent — RT News.

Osama Bin Laden cheated the gallows and died five years before US security forces officially announced he was killed, says a former CIA agent, currently living in Turkey.

“I knew Bin Laden’s Chechen guards very well,” Berkan Yashar, himself an ethnic Chechen, told the Russian TV station, Channel One. “Samy, Ayub and Mahmud were with him right to the end. I remember well this date as there were three sixes in it – June 26, 2006. Those three men, as well as two Muslims from London and two from the US saw Bin Laden dead.He was seriously ill before his death. He faded away to skin and bone. The three Chechens washed his body before burying it.”

Yashar also said that on the eve of May 2, when President Obama announced that Bin Laden had been killed, the Americans found only Bin Laden’s grave near the Afghan-Pakistani border and staged an operation.

According to Yashar, US special forces started hunting Bin Laden’s Chechen guards after Bin Laden’s death was first announced at a conference in Washington in November 2008. The last of them, Samy, was taken by the American special forces a few days before Bin Laden was officially pronounced dead. Berkan Yashar believes Samy could have told them the exact place of burial.

Answering why he had decided to speak to the Russian channel, Berkan Yashar said that after all the recent developments he feared for his life.

What Are They Spraying On Us?

This is why contrails are now chemtrails

The above quote comes directly from the most revealing government document I have read regarding chem-trails. This document should end the debate over their existence and purpose.

Its hard to comprehend that a government would subject their own population to the chemicals they are spraying in our skies. It is the trust that so many have for their government that makes it easier for them to cover our skies with chem-trails. The vast majority of people are generally moral and wouldn’t even think of doing such a thing to their fellow humans. It takes a special kind of person to do this, and not the kind of person most of us can relate to.

I once believed I was seeing contrails (condensation trails). But I can’t say that anymore. The document I discovered contains hard, indisputable data that I have to share with the world. The more people who are made aware of the toxic spraying that is happening in our skies, the better chance we have to make the perpetrators stop.

I discovered this revealing document quite by accident through a Google search. It resides on the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission website. It has never been classified as top secret. I can only assume it has been available for the public’s scrutiny since May 5, 2008 (the date on the document),

This 35-page document, describes the science behind chemtrails and their affect on the weather and the impact on our health. There is even a section that dicusses how chem-trails can work in conjunction with HAARP to weaponize the weather.

Why would this document reside on the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission website? That’s an easy one— commodities include farm products (soy beans, corn, etc). Corporate farms could benefit greatly from a system of human-controlled weather. And if those who invest in commodities also control the chemtrails… well, are you starting to get the idea?

The following excerpts are copied directly from the document (in italics), followed by my comment (in bold).


North America is now suffering its seventh year of conspicuous and dangerous aerosol and electromagnetic operations conducted by the U.S. government under the guise of national security. Concerned citizens watch in fear as military tankers discolor the skies with toxic chemicals that morph into synthetic clouds.

Comment: This document is 7 years old, so it has now been 14 years.


Tiny synthetic filaments called polymers are part of the brew…Polymer chemist Dr. R. Michael Castle has found that some of these (synthetic filaments) contain bioactive materials, which can cause “serious skin lesions and diseases when absorbed into the skin.” He has identified microscopic polymers comprised of genetically engineered fungal·forms mutated with viruses. He says that trillions of fusarium (fungus)/virus mutated spores, which secrete a powerful myco-toxin, are part of the air we breathe.

Comment: Morgellon’s disease? People suffering with this affliction have been labeled delusional.


HAARP transmissions make holes in the ozone, creating yet another hobgoblin. HAARP inventor Bernard Eastlund described in his original patent how antenna energy can interact with plumes of atmospheric particles, used as a lens or focusing device, to modify weather. HAARP is capable of triggering floods, droughts and hurricanes, much to the chagrin of both the European Parliament and the Russian Duma.”

Comment: Some people believe Hurricane Sandy was triggered or magnified by HAARP technology.


Since the effects of chem-trails are so detrimental to our health and well-being, why are they routinely sprayed in the skies above us? How can so many people deny their existence when all you have to do is look up? I have only scratched the surface of the contents in this document. Please download, read it, share it.
Its not just happening in the United States. This technology is known throughout the world.

The Land of the Rising Sun Flowers?

“Fukushima is the biggest industrial catastrophe in the history of mankind,”
Arnold Gundersen, a former nuclear industry senior vice president

The earthquake and resulting tsunami that hit Japan on March 11, 2011, left in its wake 23,000 people dead or missing. But, the damage that occurred to the Fukushima power plant will continue to negatively impact the country and its people for a very long time. Its not getting better, in fact, the Fukushima power plant meltdown which began in March 2011 continues to this day. More than four years later, the resulting negative health consequences are only growing.

But something else is growing at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant.

Within weeks of the disaster, a program was launched by civil servants and independent entrepreneurs to plant sunflower seeds in and around the contaminated area. Soon the fallout zone was covered in bright cheerful sunflowers. Was this just a symbol of hope to the people of Japan and the world, or was there more to it than that?

These cheerful flowers covered an area so large that the sunny yellow patch could be seen from passenger airliners, and maybe even from the International Space Station on a cloudless day.

But, sunflowers have been touted to do more than just brighten up an area. The sunflower project was promised to save Japan and their people. It is said that sunflowers absorb large amounts of cesium from the soil.

A similar project was implemented in the radioactive cleanup of the 1986 Chernobyl disaster in the Ukraine. This historic reference gave the Japanese people a string of hope to hang onto.

So far, more than 100,000 packets of sunflower seeds have been sold to approximately 30,000 people at the equivalent price of just under $6 each.

One of the major patrons of the sunflower project has been the city of Yokohama, which planted sunflowers in 200 of its parks.

Seeds were also sold to volunteers who took the responsibility for planting them in contaminated soil. This involvement of the Japanese public has given the people hope and a sense of pride by being part of a noble cause.

But, has this amazing claim been proven? Is this a scientific fact or has somebody pulled a fast one?

What were the results at the site of the Chernobyl disaster? To this day, the area around the Chernobyl power plant is fenced off and access to the site is prohibited, due to high levels of radiation still present.

Four years have passed since the Fukushima Sunflower project began, and the results are in. Sadly, sunflowers just don’t do the job. The roots of the sunflower grow too deep to absorb the cesium which is concentrated in the top 3-4 inches of soil.

The soil in the sunflower fields, when tested, showed a .05% reduction in the amount of active cesium. On the other hand, planting the area with shallow rooted grass, then scraping and removing the top 3-4 inches of soil was far and above more efficient. With this method, the amount of active cesium was reduced by 97%.

Somebody pulled off a huge hoax on an entire nation at a time when they needed real solutions. How many hundreds of thousands of dollars have been swindled from well-meaning Japanese citizens buying seeds and risking their health to plant them in contaminated soil?

As a symbol of hope for the “Land of the Rising Sun” the sunflower falls flat. The hope still lies in the stopping of the meltdown. To this day Fukushima continues to contaminate the air, water, and soil, not just in Japan, but to a lesser degree, throughout the entire planet.

The cold war ended without a shot being fired, but just barely

This is the cover page of a “Top Secret” document that dates back to the early 1960’s, during the cold war. Some young adults may not understand the term “cold war”, so a little background might be warranted.

A cold war is not fought on a battleground. It’s a tense relationship between two factions, where neither side trusts the other. Each side expects the other to attack, so both sides point loaded missiles at the other side, just waiting for provocation.

In the early 1960’s, the world was in the midst of a cold war. Communist idealism was on one side, and Democratic idealism on the other. The leaders of both sides fueled fear and hatred with the intent of firing up the citizens of their respective countries.

As planned, that fear did trickle down to the American public. People were building underground bomb shelters in their backyards. School children were forced to participate in frightening “duck and cover” drills. When a special alarm blared in the classroom, children dropped to the floor, huddled under their desks in a fetal position, face down, with fingers locked together behind their heads. I can remember huddling under my desk and turning my head to sneak a peek at the window. All I could see was blue sky, but I watched and waited for a Russian missile to come into view.

The propagandizing didn’t stop there. The McCarthy hearings were broadcast into every livingroom. This witch hunt popularized the question leveled at Hollywood insiders and other influential ne’er-do-goods, “Are you now, or have you ever been, a member of the Communist party?”

Yes, Communism was the big monster in the room, but add to the mix the little country of Cuba, recently taken over by dictator, Fidel Castro, and you had a matchstick just waiting to be struck. Castro brought with him, Communism, and that made factions of the U.S. government very nervous.

Castro’s reign over Cuba lasted for 49 years, from 1959 to 2008. However, in retrospect, Castro turned out to be as harmful to the American way of life as a kitten. But in the 1960’s, with only 100 miles between Havana, Cuba and Key West, Florida the U.S. government and military leaders were as jumpy as a cat on a hot tin roof.

The American military was itching for a fight with Castro. So, in 1962, the Department of Defense and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, concocted a plan with the code name, Operation Northwoods. The plan was to convince the American people that the United States must declare war on Cuba.

Operation Northwoods was planned as a covert mission to create several false flag events to implant fear into the hearts of American citizens. Some of these events included fake hijackings of airplanes painted to look like commercial jets, blowing up an unmanned U.S. Naval ship and publicizing the names of the “dead”, orchestrating a show of violent terrorism in U.S. cities, and many more staged events that would plant fear and anger into the minds of the American public.

Their goal was to provoke hyper-patriotism across America. The conspirators wanted to get the American people so riled up that they would demand retaliation. Operation Northwoods’ staged attacks would also help convince the international community to support America’s strike at Fidel Castro.

The plans detailed in this document read like a Doctor Strangelove plot. But this isn’t fiction, this is the outline of actual plans that were approved by the Department of Defense and the Joint Chiefs of Staff. This plan was then presented to President Kennedy’s defense secretary, Robert McNamara, in March 1962. Thankfully, clearer heads prevailed and the plans were rejected by the civilian leadership and never carried out.

Why did it take 50 years for these rejected plans to be made public? There’s an easy answer for that question. The reason we don’t learn about things like this until much later, is to protect those involved, while they are still alive. This practice of classifying even rejected plans makes it easier for factions of our government to continue planning this sort of insider home-grown terrorism.

However, I think this was released a bit too soon. Because many of the plans outlined in this document sound very familiar. It includes hijacked planes, terrorism on American soil, the fueling of hyper-patriotism. Where have we seen this before?

If you have scoffed at the conspiracy theories surrounding the 9-11 attack on the World Trade Center you might be feeling a little queasy about now. Some of us have gotten through that awkward stage already, and I remember how that felt.

The Operation Northwoods document is proof that factions within our government do plot such false flag events. Fortunately, in 1962, there were enough people who vetoed this scheme. I guess in 2001 too many must have thought it was a good idea. Some of my younger readers will still be around when the government declassifies the scheme known as “Operation Twin Falls” (or whatever cute monicker they used for the 9-11 attack plans).

Let me just say, now,  “I told you so”  because I won’t be around to say it fifty years from now.

You can read the entire FOIA document here:
http://nsarchive.gwu.edu/news/20010430/northwoods.pdf

Final thought: Many of the recent shootings and bombings happening in our country and around the world are false flag events, too. Pay attention to changes that happen to the affected society after these events occur (new rules and regulations). Pay closed attention to constitutional rights that are violated during or after an event. You will then begin to understand how our government is manipulating us.

If Operation Northwoods had been successfully carried out, the U.S. and the Soviet Union would have become embroiled in a third World War in the 1960s. The only ones winning that war would be the military industrial complex that President Eisenhower warned us about as he handed over the presidency to John F. Kennedy. Yes, the very same one who was assassinated for trying to clean up our government.
