In a country with advanced technology for news distribution, the removal of a nation’s leader by a coup d’etat will never be attempted unless those sponsoring the murder feel assured that they will have an effective degree of control over the dissemination of the news. Government control must be at a high enough level to guarantee the subsequent distribution of official news releases encouraging the belief that, however tragic the incident, it was essentially meaningless and all is well.

Terrorism: systematic intimidation as a method of governing or securing political or other ends

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.
James Tracy speaks with Andrew Kreig on the state of media and politics in the post-Bush era and during Obama’s second term. Mr. Kreig is a Washington DC-based attorney, nonprofit executive, and the author of Presidential Puppetry: Obama, Romney, and Their Masters (Eagle View, 2013). As editor of the non-partisan Justice Integrity Project, he is a passionate and accomplished fighter for the public interest, with credentials including 14 years as a metro newspaper reporter, plus degrees from Yale Law School, the University of Chicago Law School, and Cornell University.

On June 3, 2014, at the ostensible recommendation of the Southern Poverty Law Center  the U.S. Department of Justice announced it will revive the Domestic Terrorism Executive Committee (DTEC), founded after the 1995 Oklahoma City Murrah Federal Building bombing.
“We must concern ourselves wth the continued danger we face from individuals within our own borders who may be motivated by a variety of other causes from anti-government animus to racial prejudice,” Attorney General Eric Holder remarked.

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.
Frequently initial eyewitness accounts of violent crime scenes prove especially helpful for independent researchers to piece together what actually may have transpired. For example, in the aftermath of the major political assassinations of the late 1960s, the Oklahoma City Murrah Federal Building bombing, or more recent mass shootings such as Tucson, Aurora, and Sandy Hook, subsequent official accounts of potential culprits can vary significantly from those of first-hand witnesses.
