"Without debate, without criticism, no Administration and no country can succeed–and no republic can survive. That is why the Athenian lawmaker Solon decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy. And that is why our press was protected by the First Amendment– the only business in America specifically protected by the Constitution....
"And so it is to the printing press--to the recorder of man's deeds, the keeper of his conscience, the courier of his news--that we look for strength and assistance, confident that with your help man will be what he was born to be: free and independent."
President John F. Kennedy, Address before the American Newspaper Publishers Association, New York City, April 27, 1961
“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”
David Rockefeller, speaking at the June 1991 Bilderberg meeting in Baden, Germany.
"The people of this country don't have to be protected from the truth. This country was not built on the idea that a handful of nobles, whether located in our Federal agencies in Washington D.C., or in the news agencies in New York should decide what was good for the people to know, and what they should not know. This is a totalitarian concept which presumes that the leaders of our Federal government and the men in control of the powerful press media constitute a special elite which by virtue of their nobility and their brilliance, empower them to think for the people."
New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, 1967 NBC rebuttal, regarding media attempts to scuttle the Clay Shaw Trial. Shaw was charged with conspiring to assassinate President Kennedy.

What does Rockefeller mean by discretion?
For starters, there's the assassination of President Kennedy, when the NYT and the establishment media chose discretion, and turned a blind eye to all evidence of a coup, and worse, served as CIA propaganda assets set on concealing the conspirators in the assassination (Johnson, Nixon, and Hoover).
Kennedy warned the nation about a grave danger, a "monolithic and ruthless conspiracy" threatening world peace in this aforementioned speech to newspaper publishers.
As New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison noted in the Clay Shaw Trial, which resulted in the release of the Zapruder film and the end of President Lyndon Johnson's political career:
"The Warren Commission’s inquiry into the assassination started off with a completely unacceptable philosophy for a democracy like ours. One of its stated objectives was to calm the fears of the people about a conspiracy. But in our country, the government has no right to calm our fears any more than it has, for example, the right to excite our fears about Red China or about fluoridation or about birth control, or about anything. There is no room in America for thought control of any kind, no matter how benevolent the objective."
Other instances of "discretion" include 9/11, itself a false flag modeled on Operation Northwoods, the latter which was employed in the Kennedy assassination. (Don’t click those links unless you’re prepared, emotionally, to have your world view fundamentally challenged by self-evident and demonstrable empirical evidence.) Saddam Hussein and Fidel Castro were blamed for acts of war which our leaders actually committed, Hussein blamed for 9/11 and Castro for killing JFK. Further "discretion" was used in concealing the fact that Texas oil men, Lyndon Baines Johnson, J. Edgar Hoover, and Richard Nixon were involved in the 1963 coup and the same Texas oil men started the war in Iraq and Afghanistan.
“The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media.”
William Colby, former Director of the CIA
Not Watchdogs. Lap Dogs.
Things haven't changed. In a recent article at The Intercept, on September 4, 2014, we see in The CIA’s Mop-Up Man: L.A. Times Reporter Cleared Stories With Agency Before Publication that some assets will work for free.
"A prominent national security reporter for the Los Angeles Times routinely submitted drafts and detailed summaries of his stories to CIA press handlers prior to publication, according to documents obtained by The Intercept. Email exchanges between CIA public affairs officers and Ken Dilanian, now an Associated Press intelligence reporter who previously covered the CIA for the Times, show that Dilanian enjoyed a closely collaborative relationship with the agency, explicitly promising positive news coverage and sometimes sending the press office entire story drafts for review prior to publication. In at least one instance, the CIA’s reaction appears to have led to significant changes in the story that was eventually published in the Times.
“I’m working on a story about congressional oversight of drone strikes that can present a good opportunity for you guys,” Dilanian wrote in one email to a CIA press officer, explaining that what he intended to report would be “reassuring to the public” about CIA drone strikes. In another, after a series of back-and-forth emails about a pending story on CIA operations in Yemen, he sent a full draft of an unpublished report along with the subject line, “does this look better?” In another, he directly asks the flack: “You wouldn’t put out disinformation on this, would you?”

German journalist Udo Ulfkotte fears the media is pushing for a major war against Russia under false pretenses, claims Germany now a "banana republic."
"I’ve been a journalist for about 25 years, I have been educated in how to lie, cheat, and not to tell people the truth. “I was supported by the Central Intelligence Agency, the CIA. Why, because I’m pro-American."
"German and American media are trying to bring the war to the people in Europe, leading to war with Russia. We passed the point of no return, and I’m going to stand up and say it… is not right what I've done in the past to manipulate people to sow propaganda against Russia."
Udo Ulfkotte, former editor of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.
Yet despite its failures, the truth is the press still can save us.
There is no jailer more powerful than one who can imprison your mind, and that is the job of the news broadcaster dedicated to creating your reality and not reflecting it. The stated objective of the corporate media is to manufacture consent. The internet changed that, however. It used to be that honest and idealistic reporters would never be able to warn the nation because there would be no chance of publication or broadcasting of controversial views.
That has changed. High profile reporters and anchors all have Twitter feeds with millions of followers. They have Facebook pages with just as many. They have Instagram accounts, etc. There is absolutely no excuse, no valid one, to fear telling the truth about what's really going on in the shadow government, about what international bankers have really done to this nation not just now but since the Civil War.
And even if they can't bring themselves to tell the truth, they can retweet or share the links of those who do. Failure to do even that represents a cowardice too staggering to forgive.
Imagine what would happen if every high profile columnist, reporter and anchor with information critical to the public interest simply took to a Twitter feed or Facebook post, and told the truth? Would they risk their jobs? Those less known, perhaps. But in a matter that involves the fate of the nation, the choice has to be made: are you willing to die for your country? Most of us, any of us who would call ourselves patriots would not think twice about saying yes. But Americans are not even asking you to die.
We are not asking you to break the law. We are asking you to tell the truth because that is your job. That is the sacred obligation of a true journalist. Your viewers are not the enemy.
If this was a country where reporters were murdered for challenging and exposing corruption, it might be understandable. That is not the case here. We still have the First Amendment. But the main thing holding back the press is conformity rooted in a fear of ostracism and loss of privilege. They fear being associated with conspiracy theorists, perhaps? They shouldn't be. At least half of Americans believe in conspiracies. In a recent study authors Eric Oliver and Thomas Wood concluded such beliefs are not related to ignorance but a willingness to entertain alternative narratives. In a country where a Gallup poll showed 77% of the people distrust the corporate media, did they expect anything less?
“In contrast with many theoretical speculations, we do not find conspiracism to be a product of greater authoritarianism, ignorance, or political conservatism. Rather, the likelihood of supporting conspiracy theories is strongly predicted by a willingness to believe in other unseen, intentional forces and an attraction to Manichean narratives...”
Conformity is, at bottom, why so many Americans are in the dark, and tyranny has triumphed. So this is an appeal to those in the corporate media who consider themselves patriots: some of you are insiders. You were told that once you become insiders, you cannot speak against other insiders. But these other insiders have committed treason, and you know this. So tell the truth: distance yourself as far as you can or live forever stained with, even complicit in, their dishonor and their reward. You need to take a side now.
Though there had never been anyone nearly as courageous, there was always more than one Snowden, at every level, and what we know from him confirms a continuation and massive expansion of the FBI's infamous COINTELPRO program.
Of course, media assets have always been high priority surveillance targets but now that data is in the hands of essentially anyone who asks, and it is now in the hands of those consistently slandered, marginalized and ignored.
Many times a hard truth will come in thousands of pages of irrefutable empirical evidence, in countless witnesses, and countless facts; and many times those bold enough to speak these truths will be countered by character assassination on national television. In an age where 77% of the nation distrusts the corporate media, the truth will prevail, but still, they do this to good people so often one is drawn to conclude their common targets may be right, even before we know who that target is.
Yet despite its failures, the truth is the press still can save us. There is no jailer more powerful than one who can imprison your mind, and that is the job of the news broadcaster dedicated to creating your reality and not reflecting it.
As for Bill O’Reilly, you can't even mock him on an intellectual level like you can Maddow. For this turkey-necked imbecile yelling over an opponent's argument, or shutting off his mic, is what constitutes debate. Come to think of it, Maddow and O'Reilly are like the 2 Girls 1 Cup of Hegelian punditry, but since Maddow won't shut off your mic and yell over guests like an idiot, she has a bigger dick.
The Right and Left , Conservative and Liberal, all of that is a control device: progress in the Hegelian State is through contrived conflict. The clash of opposites makes for progress, and if you can control the opposites, you steer the outcome. The corporate state operates on Hegelian principles wherein six CEOs control the western media: compare this to Protocol 12: “All our newspapers will be of all possible complexions –aristocratic, republican, revolutionary, even anarchical … Those fools who will think they are repeating the opinion of a newspaper of their own camp will be repeating our opinion or any opinion that seems desirable for us. In the vain belief that they are following the organ of their party they will in fact follow the flag which we hang out for them.”
As for professional character assassins and frauds, that data includes who you've slept with, who you spoke with, where you shop and travel, your circle of friends, what was said, your texts and emails, in short incriminating data that would make Donald Sterlings of anyone in the press corps. Insufferably pretentious and deluded propaganda assets will soon understand, in a most painful way, exactly how the very thing they defend now can and will be used against them. In fact, it's already happening. Personally, I would sooner die a thousand deaths than face the tsunami of hate that's coming to them. What they're being blackmailed with now, by handlers, will come out no matter what happens. Jimmy Saville had the good fortune of being dead when he was finally exposed.
It's important to remember that it is not merely an opinion that the corporate news lies to you, it is a fact . They went to court, and won, the right to lie to you on news broadcasts. We also know that the CIA has never stopped planting agents in the media. William Colby, former Director of the CIA, didn't mince words: “The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media.”
As Fritz Springmeir notes...
"Here are some of their disinformation agents:
AGENT OF INFLUENCE–These agents can be unwitting... or ideologically motivated to use their positions of influence to sway the minds of others. Examples of Agents of Influence are anchor men on T.V., journalists, labor leaders, TV commentators, academics quoted by the media, & some politicians.
CONFUSION AGENT–An agent whose job is to produce confusion by disseminating confounding information.
CONTRACT AGENT–These are the rogue agents, such as the mob, who the CIA get to do particular jobs on contract. Their connections can be denied.
DEEP COVER AGENT–A sleeper agent (often a programmed multiple or person with mind-control programming) who has been a long term sleeper agent.
DISINFORMATION AGENT–This is a highly placed agent who passes disinformation to other governments.
NOTIONAL AGENT–A fictitious non-existent “agent” which is created with a real-looking identity to mislead.
PROVOCATION AGENT–An agent sent in to provoke & destabilize the target group to do foolish things.
SPOON-FEEDER AGENT–Someone who dribbles out legitimate information, this is often done to build up a person’s credentials (bona fides)..."
Maddow and O’Reilly are Agents of Influence. Everyone in the corporate media falls under this category. As you wouldn’t have your waiter chew your food for you, why would you need a pundit or anchor to digest your news for you?[raw]
Anyway, on a lighter note, I saw this cryptic writing on a wall not too long ago...
Their Eye has been plucked out,
they are now truly blind
and know it not
the dogs they trained for years
will turn on their masters
and rip them to shreds.
Among the Billderberg gripes at this year's meeting of "elites" is Obama's failure to protect their interests in Syria and the Ukraine. Because that meant spending American lives and treasure we don't have to spare, especially for billionaires, that sounds like a good thing. The inverted pyramid alludes to the collapse of the Illuminati. The number 322 refers to the Skull & Bones, an Illuminati tier which included admitted members such as Bush Sr., Bush Jr., and John Kerry.
The Illuminati and the Skull and Bones: The Latter is a Chapter of the German Order
The Illuminati was founded May 1, 1776 by Professor Adam Weishaupt of the University of Ingolstadt. It was a secret society, but in 1785 and 1787 several batches of internal documents came to the Bavarian Government. Subsequent investigation determined that the aim of the Illuminati was world domination, using any methods to advance the objective, i.e., the end always justifies the means. It was anti-Christian, although clergymen were found in the organization. Each member had a pseudonym to disguise his identity.
During its time, the Illuminati had widespread and influential membership. After suppression by the Bavarian Government in 1788 it was quiet for some years and then reportedly revived.
As Rosenbaum has pointed out in his Esquire article, the Illuminati ceremony has similarities to The Order. For example, John Robison in Proofs Of A Conspiracy: 1 “The candidate is presented for reception in the character of a slave; and it is demanded of him what has brought him to this most miserable of all conditions. He answers – Society – the State – Submissiveness – False Religion. A skeleton is pointed out to him, at the feet of which are laid a Crown and a Sword. He is asked whether that is the skeleton of a King, a Nobleman or a Beggar?
As he cannot decide, the President of the meeting says to him, “the character of being a man is the only one that is of importance.” Finally, in conclusion, we can trace the foundation of three secret societies, in fact the most influential three secret societies that we know about, to Universities. The Illuminati was founded at University of Ingolstadt. The Group was founded at All Souls College, Oxford University in England, and The Order was founded at Yale University in the United States.
John Robinson, PROOFS OF A CONSPIRACY (Americanist Classics, Belmont, 1967), p. 110.

This sentence becomes of interest when the Illuminati aspect is discussed in Memorandum Five below. Here's another interesting paragraph from this pamphlet:
"Bones is a chapter of a corps in a German University. It should properly be called, not Skull & Bones Society but Skull & Bones Chapter. General R------(Russell), its founder, was in Germany before Senior Year and formed a warm friendship with a leading member of a German society. He brought back with him to college, authority to found a chapter here. Thus was Bones founded."
Think about this: Skull & Bones is not American at all. It is a branch of a FOREIGN secret society.
"Presumably this is one reason why intense secrecy is vital. It also raises the question of just who and what this foreign organization is and whether its objectives are compatible with those of the Constitution of the United States."

What Satanic Societies Do with Human Remains, such as Skulls and Bones
Let's have a look at what German magician and occult philosopher Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa (1486-1535) wrote about this:
[Necromancy, or raising up spirits of the dead.]
In our third book of Occult Philosophy, we have taught how and by what means the Soul is joyined to the Body; and, what hapeneth to the Soul after death.
Thou maist know further, That those Souls do still love their relinquished Bodies after death, as it were a certain affinity alluring them; as are the Souls of noxious men, which have violently relinquished their Bodies, and Souls wanting a due burial, which do still wander in a liquid and turbulent Spirit about their dead carkasses; for these Souls by the known means by which heretofore they were conjoyned to their Bodies, by the like vapors, liquors, and favours, are easily drawn unto them.
From hence it is, that the Souls of the dead are not to be called up without blood, or by the application of some part of their relict Body.
In raising up these shadows, we are to perfume with new Blood, with the Bones of the dead, and with Flesh, Egges, Milk, Honey and Oile, and such-like things, which do attribute to the Souls a means apt to receive their Bodies.
It is also to be understood, That those who are desirous to raise up any Souls of the dead, they ought to do it in those places, wherein these kinde of Souls are most known to be conversant, or for some alliance alluring those souls into their forsaken Body; or for some kinde of affection in times past, impressed in them in their life, drawing the said Soul to certain places, things, or persons; or for the forcible nature of some place fitted and prepared for to purge or punish these Souls. Which places for thr most part are to be known by the experience of visions, mighty incursions, and apparitions, and such-like prodigies seen.
Therefore the places most befitting for these things, are Church-yards. And better then them, are those places wherein there is the execution of criminal judgements. And better then these, are those places, in which of late yeers there have been some publike slaughters of men. Furthermore, that place is better then there, where some dead carkass, that came by a violent death, is not yet expiated, nor ritely buried, and was lately buried; for the esxpiation of those places, is also a holy Rite duly to be adhibited to the burial of the bodies, and oftentimes prohibiteth the souls to come unto their bodies, and expelleth them far off unto the places of judgment.
And from hence it is, That the Souls of the dead are not easily to be raised up, except it be the Souls of them whom we know to be evil, or to have perished by a violent death, and whose bodies do want a right and due burial.
Now although we have spoken concerning such places of this kinde, it will not be safe or commodious to go unto them; but it behoveth us to take to what place soever is to be chosen, some principal part of the body that is relict, and therewith to make a perfume in due maner, and to perform other competent Rites.
It is also to be known, That because the Souls are certain spiritual lights, therefore artificial lights, especially if they be framed out of certain competent things, compounded according to a true rule, with congruent inscriptions of Names and Seals, do very much avail to the raising up of departed Souls.
Moreover, these things which now are spoken of, are not alwaies sufficient to raise up Souls, because of an extranatural portion of understanding and reason, which is above, and known onely to the Heaven and Destinies, and their power.
We ought therefore to allure the said Souls, by supernatural and coelestial powers duely administred, even by those things which do move the very harmony of the Soul, aswel imaginative, as rational and intellectual; as are Voices, Songs, Sound, Inchantments: and Religious things; as Prayers, Conjurations, Exorcismes, and other holy Rites, which may very commodiously be administred hereunto.
Of Occult Philosophy, by Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa
Rhawn Joseph, Ph.D writes in America Betrayed, 2002 University Press, pg. 71…
Soon after its establishment at Yale, the Order of Skull and Bones began to develop an unsavory reputation.
In October of 1876, an investigative article on The Order, appeared in Volume 1, Number 1, of “The Iconoclast.” The Inconclast was published off campus, in New Haven, “because the college press is closed to those who dare to openly mention ‘Bones’.”
The Iconoclast reported evidence of Satanism, i.e. walls covered in black, and in room 322, the “sanctum sanctorium of the temple…[was] furnished in red velvet…[with] a pentagram on the wall… and in the hall….pictures of the founders of Bones at Yale, and of members of the Society in Germany, when the chapter was established here in 1832…”
