Modern Politics is Masonry Writ Large 93

By Patrick Murphy

Why do we gather here, each day, at MHB?

The Memory Hole Blog is primarily a place to examine media reporting about what are clearly artificial events, spectacles, really, that are designed to traumatize not only the American people, but,  the whole world.  Whether we call these things “false flags” or whatever better term presents itself eventually, they tend to attract the most boisterous conversation at MHB.  But that’s not all James Tracy is interested in.  Chemtrails and “smart meters” are topics we talk about here as well.  These are not acute traumas like the false flags, but chronic assaults on the natural world that have a gradually accumulating, low grade traumatic effect on us all.

Note from James F. Tracy:

The following series–one of few forthright investigations by US corporate news media of the chemtrails/geoengineering phenomenon–originally appeared in 2005. It is republished here with permission of the Las Vegas Tribune. A Tribune representative stated on a June 5, 2014 telephone query by MHB that all of the paper’s articles may be reproduced if accompanied by attribution to the Tribune as principal source. When this party was informed that there is no record of the desired stories on the newspaper’s website, s/he responded that this was unusual, as seldom if ever are articles pulled from the site.

Unanswered Questions in the Isla Vista CA Shootings 281

By James F. Tracy

When mass shootings take place in the United States, corporate news media can almost uniformly be counted on to act as stenographers to power. They dutifully report exactly what they’re told by authorities with wholehearted trust and close to no due diligence. This appears to have been the case yet again in the May 23 Isla Vista California mass murder.

Guardians of the National Mythos 63

John F Kennedy 1967 Issue-13c.jpgBy James F. Tracy

The most efficient system of opinion management functions largely absent of the conscious intent or effort of intellectual governance. A society detached from its historical bearings will frequently resort to myths and falsehoods which over time form a coherent worldview resistant to unconventional perspectives. The informal priesthood beholden to such a belief system is ensconced in the officialdom of journalism and academe.

Corporate Media’s Dubious Syria Coverage 26

By James F. Tracy

Western news media reportage on the rampant criminal activities of foreign-backed paramilitary groups operating within Syria still relies heavily on unreliable sources frequently referred to as “activists.” Such spokespersons routinely claim the Syrian military are committing atrocities against the Syrian population. The reports are often disputed by the Bashar al-Assad government and proven suspect or false when additional information is unearthed by independent researchers and alternative news media.

Media Blackout on Smart Meter Dangers 34

By James F. Tracy

Major power utilities continue to deploy “smart” electrical meters on businesses and private residences throughout the United States and Canada. Yet those in North America and elsewhere remain in the dark on the negative health effects of such devices that systematically blast their homes with radio-frequency (RF) radiation on a minute-by-minute, round-the-clock basis.
