Over the past week MHB has been covering the defamatory false flag techniques employed by powerful anti-free speech of Canada against University of Lethbridge Professor Tony Hall that resulted in Dr. Hall’s October 5 suspension without pay by Lethbridge administrators. That action has since been condemned by the University of Lethbridge Faculty Association.
Below is the inflammatory image posted on Hall’s Facebook page without his knowledge. According to political cartoonist Ben Garrison, it was altered by infamous internet troll Joshua Goldberg when Goldberg and others led an online campaign to frame Garrison as a White Supremacist.
“Goldberg attacked me as early as 2010 on Facebook using the handle ‘MoonMetropolis,'” Garrison told MHB in an email.
“Do Americans live in a false reality created by orchestrated events?”—Paul Craig Roberts
Our nation’s leading public intellectual was thereby responding to our work on Sandy Hook and the Boston bombing, but the extent and depth of deception by the American government with regard to the American people has no bounds. We even have a candidate for the office of the President of the United States resorting to the use of body doubles to keep the public from learning of the dire state of her health, which is copiously documented here. This is not theory: this is fact! The people are being played with the complicity of the mainstream media.
Over his long and impressive academic career, Professor Anthony Hall has helped us all better understand how crises can be manufactured to manipulate public perception of narratives that serve the interests of established power.
Now, he is the victim of one of those contrived crises.
In the latest of a growing list of glaring assaults on academic freedom, Hall has been suspended without pay from his tenured teaching position at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada where he has taught for 26 years. As the result of an obviously faked and planted Facebook post, he has become the focus of a smear campaign by the Jewish lobby group B’nai Brith Canada, which is accusing him of being an “anti-Semitic Holocaust denier.”
Hillary Clinton has been revealed to have a very cozy relationship with the US media, which has been found to work closely with Clinton’s campaign to present her in a favorable, transparent light – even planting stories, new email leaks suggest.
These facts are laid bare in the latest cache of classified Clinton campaign emails seen by The Intercept, which in turn received them from Guccifer 2.0 – the hacker who’s reportedly behind several high-profile intrusions.
The cache of emails includes campaign strategies aimed at keeping the public perception of Clinton favorable, focusing particularly on her transparency, especially in light of the FBI investigation into her use of a private email server. The strategies sometimes reveal the campaign presiding over stylistic points and emphasizing what is to be described as “on the record.”
“Newtown” is as hard a documentary to watch as you’re likely to encounter. It needed to be; anything less would have been too dismissive of one of the most traumatic American tragedies in recent memory.
The film, by Kim A. Snyder, revisits the shooting in December 2012 that left 20 students and six staff members dead at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. The focus, though, is on the aftermath — not merely the initial reaction, but the lingering effects on families, teachers, emergency medical workers.
The targeting of University of Lethbridge Professor Anthony Hall is now a national news story in Canada. On October 3 the Canadian Broadcast Corporation’s David Gray conducted an in-studio interview with Hall, a senior tenured faculty member at Lethbridge, concerning the recent controversy surrounding him resulting from the defamatory campaign waged by Canada’s B’nai B’rith political pressure group.
The edited interview as broadcast by CBC may be listened to here. The uncensored version, taped by a colleague of Hall refused access to the studio, is captured in the video below.
It’s no secret that the same interests exerting ownership of major media regard Donald Trump’s candidacy as a very real threat to the status quo. This is reflected in the severely negative news coverage of the Trump campaign, particularly when contrasted with that of its counterpart–you know, the wife of the man who gave corporate media so much of their booty by signing into law the 1996 Telecommunications Act.
Unsurprisingly in the immediate wake of the first presidential debate of 2016 major cable news outlets unanimously argued that Donald Trump lost the matchup, or, at the very least it was “not his night.” For example, veteran MSNBC presstitute Chris Matthews effused that Clinton “cleaned [Trump’s] clock” and was the “home run debater–the Babe Ruth of debaters.”
Yet it wasn’t simply MSNBC that lauded Clinton’s performance. FoxNews’ Dana Perino, Brit Hume and Juan Williams all pointed to Trump being “on the ropes” and “on the defensive” through much of the exchange.
With the first presidential debate just around the corner recent data from Ad Age indicates Hillary Clinton has outspent Donald Trump by about 3,300 percent for television and radio ads. Yet she has almost nothing to show for it. Most recent polling now indicates the race is a virtual dead heat in battleground states.
This despite the fact that major news media have provided very negative coverage of the Trump campaign (essentially subsidized partisan advocacy) and an overwhelming majority of deeply monied interests are supporting the Democratic candidate.
This video documents Tuskin’s arrest as he was following orders to vacate the University of Florida property on “trespassing” charges falsely alleged by Alachua County Sheriff deputy, Lt. Richard Lalonde. Tuskin later discovered that Lalonde has a record civil
rights abuses including a previous lawsuit. Tuskin secured an attorney to prosecute a case of false arrest but has not made a decision to follow through. Tuskin’s reluctance is based on fear that Alachua County Sheriff Sadie Darnell’s deputies will continue to harass him and his family. Videographer, Ed Sanders is a UF Alum but was also unlawfully ordered to leave taxpayer supported, state property at the University of Florida, Ben Hill Griffin stadium grounds.
European academics call for statist social-psychological approach to silence public inquiry and dissent

The Ministry of Education must test its pedagogical tools against conspiracy culture. The wrong cure might only serve to spread the disease.
Conspiracy theories are on many people’s minds and are the object of all kinds of initiatives, sometimes local, sometimes more ambitious. The French government is among them, evidenced by the collaboration between the Ministry of Education and France Télévisions to produce and diffuse a ‘video-kit’, available to all in the teaching profession (https ://vimeo.com/151519913). They also explore suitable responses to the worrying spread of these ‘theories’ by proposing, here and there, an intellectual defence or critical response. Ultimately, these associations come together to fight against this particular form of contemporary misinformation known as ‘conspiracism’.
