““Tenure, free speech, due process and academic freedom are under attack. Without judicial intervention, employees and faculty at Florida Atlantic University and other universities around the United States, will continue to be censored, deterred or chilled from sharing unpopular information or opinions for fear that they will be disciplined on a pretext.”-Attorney Louis Leo IV

Book Review: And Nobody Died in Boston Either (2016)

State-sponsored terrorism with Hollywood special effects (9/10)

Edited by James Fetzer, PhD, and Mike Paleck
Reviewed by Brian R. Wright

[Note: The Coffee Coaster is proud to publish this review on April 15, 2016—241 years after the British were ordered to march on Lexington and Concord, Mass., thus leading to, on April 19th, the first colonial armed resistance that produced British casualties: the ‘shot heard ’round the world’ and the beginning of American Independence. [And, ironically, the third Boston+front+coveranniversary of a major hoax-assault produced, in Boston, by an out-of-control, clandestine, federalized oligarchy for purposes of destroying all vestiges of individual liberty in our country.]

The good news is this book, unlike the notorious Nobody Died at Sandy Hook (2015), was not ‘banned'[1] by Amazon. The bad news is that with the Boston stage performance, many in the alternative community—which initially was all over the false-flag indicators and images in real time that completely demolished the official story—seemed to stop writing and caring a month later. Was it because the two alleged terrorists had hard-to-spell names and a Muslim orientation? Did the government’s case miraculously start making sense? Or did higher priority stories come along, e.g. what ‘the Donald’ ate for breakfast yesterday morning?

Uprooting the Experience of Normality

On this edition James speaks with philosopher and esotericist Neil Kramer on the relationships between empire, education, and the modern psyche. Kramer argues that the world is at an important crossroads where people increasingly question their neil-kramermisplaced faith in traditional institutions and the experiences they seek to govern. Today human beings are commensurately discovering their own power as individuals, and using this empowerment to question the collectivist ideas and attitudes fostered by today’s mass media and schooling.

Neil Kramer’s research, writing and multimedia endeavors focus on spirituality, mysticism, and metaphysics. He explores the relationship between inner development and the many social and cultural factors that influence our everyday lives. Kramer emphasizes embracing truth and confronting the negative in a journey to transform self.

BBC Edits Interview to Attack “Conspiracy Theorists”

Prof. Jim Fetzer
jamesfetzter.blogspot.com

The BBC has massively edited an interview with me to use me as an example of a “conspiracy theorist”, where they excluded most of the proof that I presented during a 40 minute interview and added a lot of poppycock psycho-babble about why people are predisposed to believe conspiracy theories regardless of logic and evidence, the significance of which they systematically ignore: for them, reason and rationality do not matter!

The Why Factor (BBC Worldwide)

Here is a link where you can download the 18 minute program broadcast worldwide: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p03kpvjf. If anyone finds it where I can embed it directly, please let me know. Contrast what they used with my previous, “Why I (Jim Fetzer) AM a “conspiracy theorist“, which I extracted from my pre-interview for the published BBC interview, because I made many more points about Sandy Hook, including on my banned book, NOBODY DIED AT SANDY HOOK (2015) and its thirteen (13) contributors.

Noah Pozner’s Death Certificate

As Posted Online by Lenny Pozner

“To try to stop the harassment, [Lenny] Pozner posted his son’s birth and death certificates online, along with the medical examiner’s report. The hoaxers responded by insisting the records were counterfeit … It is good Tracy is no longer on FAU’s payroll. It is heartbreaking that his actions still haunt the Pozners. The sooner James Tracy disappears from the news and the Pozners’ lives, the better. -“Sandy Hook Family Haunted By Doubters: FAU Professor Rightfully Fired, Union Shouldn’t Defend Him,” South Florida Sun Sentinel Editorial Board, January 18, 2016.

Upon first consideration, Lenny’s “death certificate” for Noah Pozner looks authentic, where questions only arise when you take a closer look. For it to have been published by his father, Lenny is a significant development, since it is the first concrete proof we have that any child actually died at Sandy Hook. As we have emphasized, there have been extraordinary efforts to suppress information about these 20 deaths:

The Greatest Lie: How propaganda through mass media spellbounds us all

Kevin Scott King
Truth Shock

I started this article thinking I was going to list out the numerous deceptions and real issues that not just threaten residents of the USA, but humanity itself, the very health of the planet. I had written out almost 40 and realized I had many more to go. In fact I had already created categories; Financial, Governmental, Health, Technology, Environmental. The point of this article is not to list the numerous real issues that are a threat to us all. Nor is to create another Top Ten list of things to be AFRAID of!! Michael Snyder has that market covered. It’s real easy to sell fear. It might be the #1 product sold on American TV. And Alt/Truth media is just as guilty of selling fear as the MSM.

However many of these issues are very serious, and we all should be genuinely concerned, there is justification for being afraid. But we must not live our lives in fear. We’ve already lost if we do, and this is why fear is so heavily sold, marketed, pushed, advertised. And yet we must face these issues. Not just face them; we must address them, resist them, overcome them. We each must decide where to focus our energies. So then where do I, you, we focus? What is the most pressing issue of our time? What is the greatest deception? What is the greatest threat to humanity, to life on earth, to the planet itself?

The Execution of Martin Luther King

“Full truth of the assassination revealed and adjudicated in a court of law.”

In 1999 a US court found that the United States government was directly involved in the murder of the most significant American black public figure of the twentieth century: Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. As attorney William Pepper observes in his 2003 book, An Act of State: The Execution of Martin Luther King, the civil rights leader was the focus of US “[Military Intelligence Group] officers” who “were responsible for eye-to-eye surveillance operations which included audio and video recordings of people and events designated as targets. Dr. King was a target and throughout the last year of his life was under surveillance by one or another MIG team.”

This and similar historical revelations were almost entirely censored by US corporate media and have thus been largely expunged from the official historical record, popular memory, and the curriculum of most every grade and high school history class, where students are still incorrectly told that an angry white man, James Earl Ray, was the sole assassin. In fact, as discussed below, Ray was entirely vindicated by these very court proceedings.

Like the assassinations of JFK and RFK, or the events of 9/11, the US public is assured of its innocence and consoled by government, mass media, and its very educational institutions with myths springing from a demonstrably false historical record.-JFT

The Transcription of the King Family Press Conference on the MLK Assassination Trial Verdict

H/t Washingtons Blog

CORETTA SCOTT KING: There is abundant evidence of a major high level conspiracy in the assassination of my husband, Martin Luther King, Jr. And the civil court’s unanimous verdict has validated our belief. I wholeheartedly applaud the verdict of the jury and I feel that justice has been well served in their deliberations. This verdict is not only a great victory for my family, but also a great victory for America. mlkIt is a great victory for truth itself. It is important to know that this was a SWIFT verdict, delivered after about an hour of jury deliberation. The jury was clearly convinced by the extensive evidence that was presented during the trial that, in addition to Mr. Jowers, the conspiracy of the Mafia, local, state and federal government agencies, were deeply involved in the assassination of my husband. The jury also affirmed overwhelming evidence that identified someone else, not James Earl Ray, as the shooter, and that Mr. Ray was set up to take the blame.

Three years later … Why do professional journalists still fail to report the news?

On January 11, 2013 CNN’s Anderson Cooper sent reporters to my campus office, and later my residence, in an effort to inquire why a professor trained in media studies and criticism would ever publicly question the corporate news media’s reportage of the Sandy Hook massacre event.

Source: CNN.com

A major theme this author hit on in early 2013 was the fact that when it came to events such as Aurora or Sandy Hook, much of the journalism produced by Cooper and his superstar colleagues often left the public more confused than informed. As I have recently written, mainstream news coverage of such events wasn’t traditionally like this.

Some MHB readers will recall how I later gave Mr. Cooper a piece of my mind, imploring him to rise to the occasion and once and for all give the lie to those irksome conspiracy theorists.

“I think you’ll agree that it’s time to put these Sandy Hook ‘truthers’ to rest for good,” I told Anderson in June 2014,  “thereby allowing the Sandy Hook victims’ families to find comfort in the millions of dollars in donations they have received from sincere and goodhearted Americans.

“Anderson,” I continued, “let’s reexamine Sandy Hook together to confirm our own professional integrity, while at the same time striking a potential blow at corruption and deceit. Our conscience requires it. Our nation demands it. Won’t you join me?”

Over eighteen months later I still await Anderson’s response.

The point of my letter, of course, was to call out a celebrity journalist for his profession’s consistent failure to actually report the news, and to instead partake in the sensationalism and mud-slinging that is turning more and more Americans away from the affairs of the day.

The world has been turned upside down when those with the overwhelming power to inform the public partake in subterfuge and simply lazy journalism. As of this writing Cooper is still employed by CNN. As most are aware by now, I was removed from my tenured teaching position on January 8, 2016.

I will be sending my resume to CNN shortly. After all, if Anderson refuses to accurately report the news and CNN wants to continue to take itself seriously someone has to step up to the plate.

Here’s that 2014 letter to Mr. Cooper.
