Peter and Cathie Weissenberg are this week’s guests on Real Politik. They are a long time married couple who met and were raised in the Washington DC area. They are both professionals who have each been employed in their respective fields for over 25 years, Cathie in the area of insurance and Peter within telecommunication, primarily for the industry giant Verizon. While working at Verizon in 2002 Peter first became the victim of workplace harassment.

In December 2014 MHB carried news of two lawsuits filed by documentary filmmaker and author William Shanley against major Western news media figures and organizations for their alleged involvement in the December 14, 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre. One of the suits demanded $1 trillion in damages from news media and associated parties for their involvement in the Sandy Hook event. Shortly thereafter, on December 30, Plaintiff Shanley appeared to go missing.

Major US news media have presented a grossly distorted and misleading interpretation of vaccines and their relationship to public health since early January. These journalistic organs have suggested the recent measles outbreak in the Western US has been a crisis of monumental proportions.
This flagrant and cynical sensationalism has become a foundation for intense advocacy on behalf of the pharmaceutical corporate and regulatory cartel targeting patient informed consent—a founding principal of modern medical practice and personal freedom. Keeping in mind the close to 300 vaccine products now in the pharmaceutical industry’s pipeline, closer analysis of “measles outbreak” press coverage suggests a conscious effort by corporate news media to virtually banish such notions and practices from the public mind. A news media dependent on over $1 billion in advertising dollars from big pharma must almost by necessity indulge their clients’ broader agenda.

On February 27 Memory Hole Blog published an article, “DHS Admits: We Stage Domestic Terrorism,” an unsolicited work received from an unidentified party. Two previous posts were received by this party and posted over the past month. The most recent piece featured multiple images and somewhat humorously focused on public figures involved in the Sandy Hook School massacre and Boston Marathon bombing. While the post may have been written and submitted in good faith, some readers have helped persuade the editor that it does not fit the tone this forum seeks to foster.
Over the past several years government and law enforcement officials have denied that U.S. citizens are routinely stalked by teams or groups of anonymous individuals. Documents obtained from the U.S. Department of Justice under the Freedom of Information Act reveal that these official denials are false.
This week’s guest on Real Politik is political cartoonist Ben Garrison. In a sea of largely homogeneous editorial cartooning, Mr. Garrison brings a truly unique voice and vision. Presently a freelance commercial artist, Garrison’s first cartoons appeared in The San Angelo Standard Times in the early 1980s. He was also a graphic artist at the The San Antonio Express News and The Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
In 2008, the big banks were bailed out, which served as Garrison’s wake-up call. Like many other outraged Americans, he wrote his senators and congressman, urging them vote against the bailout, but he was ignored. The bailout marked the point where Mr. Garrison felt he had to do something. He wanted to ring alarm bells and so he became a citizen muckraker. In 2009 he began drawing editorial cartoons that skewered the Federal Reserve and the growing police state in America. The Internet made it possible for his cartoons to be seen by millions all over the world. The Internet also made it possible for anonymous entities to deface his work, libel his name and make him into the most trolled cartoonist in the world.

The transnational pharmaceutical cartel will be positioning itself to profit handsomely if a federally-mandated adult immunization program becomes law. The proposed US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) policy will be implemented alongside the Obama administration’s Affordable Care Act (ACA), thereby becoming a standard component of US national healthcare policy.

Over the past several years a conspiracy of silence has surrounded the implementation of the Smart Grid across the United States, perhaps with good reason. If the public was aware of what lay behind this agenda there would likely be considerable outcry and resistance.
“Smart meters”–the principal nodes of the Smart Grid network–are being installed on homes and businesses by power utilities across the United States under the legal and fiscal direction of the United States government. In December 2007 both houses of the US Congress passed and President George W. Bush signed into law the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA).
On this week’s Real Politik we speak with Jeanice Barcelo on modern medicine’s theft and brutalization of the human birthing process. Barcelo is a transformational teacher in the movement to expose the violence of hospital birth and to return birthing to the home. She is also the author of the 2014 book, Birth Trauma and the Dark Side of Modern Medicine: Exposing Systematic Violence During Hospital Childbirth and the Hijacking of Human Love, a work that examines the horrors of technologically-managed pregnancy and childbirth, and how we as a society have come to accept this as a substitute for what was once a truly divine and spiritual event.
