Sunday Globe Special: Pinned Down

Special only in that I am down to one day of blogging per week(?). 

It's now undeniable.

Ex-wrestlers say one of their own sells them short Chris Nowinski, a former Harvard football player whose star turn in the World Wrestling Entertainment arena helped expose the hidden perils of the body-slamming entertainment and sports industries.

I gave it a quick count. Even choreographed play acting is dangerous; however, what is more disturbing is the Globe article reads like "pro wrestling" is real. 

I'll never forget the world that was shattered when I was told wrestling was fake. Was back in the days of Bruno Sammartino, Chief Jay Strongbow, and Ivan Putski. I was crushed and didn't believe it could all be staged and scripted fiction.

Who knew then my new$paper would become the same type of entity (if it wasn't already)?

That get's us back into the ring:

Bill Clinton will eulogize the champ

I knew some people would look to make a profit off his legacy.

In the crowd were civil rights activist Jesse Jackson, boxing promoter Don King, former boxer Sugar Ray Leonard, and Louis Farrakhan, head of the Nation of Islam, were among the high-profile guests, young and old; black and white; Muslims, Christians and Jews

"'Ali! Ali!': The Greatest is laid to rest in his hometown" by Jenna Fryer and Bruce Schreiner AP  June 10, 2016

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The public memorial at the KFC Yum! Center was packed with celebrities, athletes and politicians, including former President Bill Clinton, Sen. Orrin Hatch, director Spike Lee, former NFL great Jim Brown, Arnold Schwarzenegger, soccer star David Beckham, Whoopi Goldberg and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

In eulogies that were sometimes laced with political barbs in this presidential campaign season, speaker after speaker paid tribute to Ali as a fearless man of principle, someone who went from being one of the most polarizing figures of the 20th century to one of the most beloved, a source of black pride and a symbol of professional excellence.

Kevin Cosby, pastor of a Louisville church, likened Ali to such racial trailblazers as Jesse Owens, Rosa Parks and Jackie Robinson.

Jesse took one on the chin after his track career was over.

Rabbi Michael Lerner, a political activist and editor of the Jewish magazine Tikkun, brought the crowd to its feet four times with a fiery speech in which he referred to Ali’s refusal to be drafted during the Vietnam War — a stand that cost him his boxing title.

‘‘Ali stood up to immoral war, risked fame to speak truth to power. The way to honor him is to be like him today,’’ Lerner said, railing against anti-Muslim bigotry, drone attacks, the gap between rich and poor, and racist policing.

What a guy, huh? 

You don't need to speak truth to power; it already knows what is going on. 

And speaking of drone attacks:

President Barack Obama was unable to make the trip because of daughter Malia’s high school graduation.

Thank God for small favors.

But White House adviser Valerie Jarrett read a letter from the president at the service in which Obama said Ali helped give him the audacity to think he could one day be president.

‘‘Muhammad Ali was America. Brash. Defiant. Pioneering. Never tired. Always game to test the odds. He was our most basic freedoms: religion, speech, spirit,’’ Obama said....

His audacity knows no bounds.

That's where I stopped reading the print copy, much like I've stopped listening to him, much like I did in the 7th year of Bush and his blather.


Honestly, I'm offended by the usurpation of the narrative and promotion of the conventional myth by war criminal scum. Sorry.

"Don’t mythologize Ali’s rage" by Stephen Kinzer   June 06, 2016

Reaction to the death of Muhammad Ali this weekend was reverential, and why not? As obituaries explained at great length, Ali was more than just a great boxer. He was a “civil rights activist,” a “champion of free speech,” a “humanitarian,” a “tireless human rights ambassador and philanthropist” known for “gentle generosity.”

Reading this, one might imagine that Ali lived the kind of life that made everyone admire him. The truth is quite opposite. During the prime of his life, Ali was widely hated. Politicians and news commentators denounced him as a cowardly, anti-American traitor.

I knew that.

The legislature of his home state, Kentucky, passed a resolution declaring that he had brought discredit to the state and to “thousands who gave their lives for this country.” Even other African-American athletes, including Joe Louis and Jackie Robinson, criticized him.

The Globe's resident Zionist Jew says Ali was an unabashed bigot and racial separatist. Gotta be some irony there.

This is a wonderful lesson in the way we whitewash figures who harshly criticize America’s conduct in the world. While they live and speak, we abhor them. Years later, when they are conveniently gone, we forget the ferocity of their words and pretend they were part of America’s happy family.

If Ali was a gentle giant beloved by all, he symbolizes our goodness and the unity of our society. Yet he was much more than that. Ali sacrificed years at the peak of his career because he hated what his country was doing to nonwhite people far away. As he was about to enter prison for refusing induction into the Army, he explained his motive: “My conscience won’t let me go shoot my brother, or some darker people, some poor, hungry people in the mud, for big powerful America.”

Ali believed it was wrong and even sinful for the United States to bomb faraway lands because their people or leaders do not behave as we wish. His message is every bit as urgent today as it was when he first began preaching it. Yet in the fawning coverage that has followed his death, Ali comes across as a friendly grandpa rather than a passionate critic of American foreign policy.

His case is hardly unique. Not long before Ali died, much publicity was given to the death of another relentless advocate of peace, the Rev. Daniel Berrigan. Like Ali, Berrigan was jailed for actions that stemmed from his antimilitarist convictions. At one protest, he denounced “the Catholic Church, other Christian bodies, and the synagogues of America, with their silence and cowardice in the face of our country’s crimes.” Obituaries did not ignore his activism — they could not, since it was the center of his life — but many portrayed him as an eccentric oddball and suggested that he would be remembered for his poetry and “wry wit.”

And that he was in the end proven wrong (or so sayeth the war pre$$).

Martin Luther King Jr. has suffered the same fate. Today he is an icon, universally revered, and even honored with a statue on the Washington Mall. Most of us have come to share his belief that African-Americans deserve civil rights. We congratulate ourselves for having heeded his antiracist message.

That was not, however, King’s only message. He detested what he called “smooth patriotism,” and was horrified by the American compulsion to bomb, invade, and occupy countries on other continents. “We increased our troop commitments in support of governments which were singularly corrupt, inept, and without popular support,” he said in one speech. “People read our leaflets and received the regular promises of peace and democracy and land reform. Now they languish under our bombs.” Statements like that led the director of the FBI to call King “the most dangerous man in America,” all but begging some misguided patriot to kill him. We forget this essential part of King’s message because it applies too directly to the foreign policy we follow today.

Starting to get angry.

Activists of earlier generations have suffered the same fate. Radicals from Thoreau to Paul Robeson to Malcolm X now appear on US postage stamps. Mark Twain is remembered as a folksy humorist partly because his vivid denunciations of American intervention are absent from most anthologies. Few today realize that Twain opposed sending “our clean young men to shoulder a discredited musket and do bandit’s work,” that he believed foreign wars had “debauched America’s honor,” or that he proposed a new American flag “with the white stripes painted black and the stars replaced by the skull and cross-bones.”

Americans who want our country to change the way it acts in the world often feel that we are blazing a new trail. We are not. The idea that the US harms itself and others, by considering itself “indispensable,” and by trying to “shape” the politics and culture of faraway countries, was not recently invented. It is as American as apple pie. Yet those who have preached this gospel are either forgotten or — even worse — portrayed after death as friendly folks who may have spoken an intemperate word or two but in their hearts loved everything America is and does. Muhammad Ali is the latest to suffer this indignity. We do him, and others who share his antiwar passion, a disservice when we forget crucial aspects of their political identities.


Of course he loses credibility when he endorses Trump.

Did you see who got frozen out of the eulogies? 

And before I could get moving this morning my attention was diverted to Florida:

‘About 20’ killed in Orlando shooting At least 42 people were taken to hospitals. The shooter was killed in an exchange of gunfire with police, who described the incident as “domestic terror.”

Must be regarding the Grimmie scene I saw in my printed paper.

So which group are they trying to frame now to further state tyranny? 

One gunman got that many, huh? 

Looks and smells like crisis drill fiction or false flag op to me, and I have yet to even look at my blog roll.

Reminds of the drills over at Fenway (gotta a tip) that coincided(?) with a school shooting in Dorchester this week. I suppose I would buy the event more if, after three days, a locus of pain that has coalesced around a message of resilience wasn't accompanied by clowning around. One wonders where the guns are coming from, but one gets no answers just rebuke for the young people who saw Brown’s slaying and have stayed silent (‘it ain’t cool to be the po-po.’)

Meanwhile, back in Florida:

George Zimmerman’s auction attempt stirs outcry

That's the gun used at the night club, right?

Zimmerman’s gun draws $65 million bid, but it’s probably fake

What a snake, huh?

"William Hager said 78-year-old Carolyn Hager was sick, and that the medications she needed were too expensive."

So he buried her alive?

Tropical Storm bears down on Florida

It's the the latest in a series of severe weather events across the country.

My interest is waning to the point of who cares what comes next (wintry conditions in June?).

Suspected Terrorist Attack on Orlando Gay Club Is Deadliest Mass Shooting in U.S. History

Pulse Mass Casualty Event: Largest Mass Casualty Event in US History

Looks like another Gladio at the least.

A witness claims there were two shooters, so heeeeeere we go!

This is really starting to stink like another false-flag terror attack -- WRH

""My first thought when news of the shooting came in, before it had even been labelled an “act of terror”, was is this a terror attack”? If so, I wondered, was it a false flag?

For nowadays almost every incident of high profile violence in the U.S. has inconsistencies that suggest false flag. The Boston marathon bombing, the Denver Aurora shooting, the San Bernardino shooting, even the failed ISIS terror attack in Rochester, New York, all look as if they were either staged or the authorities had prior knowledge of what was to happen.

The above incidents are only a few of the questionable incidents that have occurred recently that look suspicious. Does this latest shooting follow a similar pattern? Has the gay community been targeted to extract sympathy as they are portrayed as “victims” of violent prejudice? -- Truthseeker

That's one thing to consider.


Four articles cover the top half of the fold:

50 killed as gunman attacks Orlando gay club

The Zionist propaganda site SITE claims its an ISIS attack, thus confirming its false flag nature.

A place ‘to live’ quickly became a scene of mayhem

Orlando shooter’s clean record allowed him to buy guns

Which FBI "informant" gave him them a day before the attacks?

Obama, others decry shooting as it reignites political debates on terrorism, guns, gay rights 

The agenda push becomes clear, and this all helps Trump!

Prayers aren’t enough. The US needs fewer guns.

Unless they are in the hands of authority.

After Orlando, will we say ‘enough’?

I pretty much have.

Yet Another False Flag Shooting In America: What We Have (So Far) About This Latest "Shooting" In Orlando Florida!

".... The big news of Sunday morning was the overnight/middle-of-night event in Orlandolocal reporting via the Orlando Sentinel via provides a core, and Scott Creighton has his finger on the pulse of things

Someone else made the astute observation that the assassination of a minor-league vocalist du jour the day before allowed lots of MSM to have TV crews on hand to document and transmit the news of the “domestic terror” attack involving … drum roll please… a Muslim. has more, some of it graphic. [Ed.: Or maybe not, if it’s fake blood….]



I’ll wait for hard detail and research to roll in from across the Net but Orlando has an aura of an event that was specifically engineered, perhaps with the help of mind controlOthers are quick to point out that the event went down in a gun-free zone. Whatever you might think you know about mind control, you should read up on William Sargant whose name has been linked to MK-ULTRA and more specifically Ewan Cameron; “… Sargant sent Cameron a note saying: “Whatever you manage in this field, I thought of it first”….” .

I would recommend that you read his book “Battle for the Mind”, paying special attention to the similarities and links between brain-washing and religious practices.

Oh, wait… by 6 PM Sunday night, when I returned to my window on the world, there was news that the “perp du jour” had ties with the FBI (oh, quelle surprise) and that the fellow is claimed to be linked to ISIS, the very organization that the US has helped to create, fuel, arm (Libya and Fast&Furious) and suupports with military action and diplomacy.

Add to that the predictably-guaranteed linkage to an ongoing campaign to prevent access to assault weapons and it is clear that the political correctness of the dynamics is not the issue: that the US government is involved in fueling the terror campaigns (long history of that, neh?) and using them to induce cultural chaos is the problem.

That the Democratic media-anointed Presidentially-endorsed candidate-dictatress-in-waiting is up to her face in her covert support of the Muslim Brotherhood (sequelae of our support for the resurrection and re-assignment of German fascists like Otto Skorzeny) through Huma Abedin, deeply involved in the infamous e-mail “hairball” brouhaha, yet being given a pass by the Commander-in-Chief, ought to make it clear what is going on.

Had enough yet, people?

I am not a member of the LBGTFQ community or whatever it is called, nor am I fan of or practitioner of those lifestyles, but that doesn’t make me an actively vitriolic or violent individual. So long as I am not being personally proseltytized or confronted, people are free to make and live their choices, and then free to face the consequences of those choices with the knowledge that many find them deeply offensive: that community must face the reality that it is being used by others as a means of social engineering, social division, and more, and if its members are okay with the fact that they are being used like toys by powerful people, that’s their business.

In the link that follows at Sullen Bell, and in many other places, it becomes eminently clear what is going on here.

This is just the latest incident that makes it clear the those old controversial writings from centuries ago known as the minutes of the meetings of the leadership of what some call the Khazarian mafia (otherwise described historically as the protocols of the elders of Zion) do indeed have a good deal of validity; you have only to watch the news lately to find the proof.

In the comments in that open thread linked above, “DublinsMick” provides links to Wackenhut, mind control, et alia. There is mention of crisis actors and the possibility of this being a hoax. I’ll plead being an agnostic on that one so far, but there’s plenty of evidence fo this kind of thing in the past, so I’m not pooh-hooing the idea.

Nor should anything here be taken as a suggestion that I am pro-Trump.
