Alternative News – Who Can You Trust? Russia Today? Veterans Today? Maybe Not…..

indexAs someone who is actively involved in conspiracy research I try very hard to put forth information which is well founded and researchable.  I have long held the belief that you should not trust me, you should see what I write and do the research to come to your own conclusions.  Like many researchers I can and do make mistakes.  This, however, is not the prevailing view amongst conspiracy researchers who seek to spoon feed answers to the public.  The interesting thing is where those answers come from, and you might be surprised, well shocked is probably the better word.

Each day, as a researcher, I hit up a lot of different news sites and try to get the gist of the days headlines.  I seek out both mainstream and alternative news to try to find nuggets of information because lets face it - this is the conspiracy world and sometimes a nugget is the best thing you have.  Many times I see very provocative titles about wars, rumors of wars and lots of other dribble which has very little basis for reality but one thing is always for certain - I see RT and Veterans Today cited extensively.  So awhile back I decided to do a little research, I am a researcher right, to figure out who is behind these media sources.  I discovered, to my surprise that RT/Russia Today is a Kremlin funded propaganda machine and that Veterans Today's Editor Gordon Duff is featured extensively on the Iranian funded propaganda machine PressTV as a analyst.  Having discovered this I told a few friends about what I found and put it in the back of my mind in the "don't trust this" folder.

jesse-venturaRecently I learned that political renegade and liberatarian poster child Jesse Ventura was going to join RT / Russia Today and to have a deep hard hitting political show.  Interesting I thought, and frankly a slam to his credibility in my mind.  The truth be told I enjoy Ventura and I think he has done a lot for exposing the alternate governmental structures and conspiracies which seem to flourish in today's world.  As Governor of Minnesota I think he did some things really well and made a huge difference, but RT?  What is he thinking? I've been asking myself that very question since I learned of this and I figured I should explore some of the information which is available about Russia Today in hopes someone will pass along this information to Governor Ventura and maybe, just maybe, he will rethink this.  I also wanted to share this information in hopes that people will really take a long hard look at RT and Veterans Today as news sources.

What I am NOT saying is that Gordon Duff or Jesse Ventura are shills to these propaganda machines.  I suspect they are well intentioned individuals who are taking advantage of opportunities they feel will spread their messages, both good and bad.  That being said I think their association with these news sources does hurt their credibility, and I think that's a fair assessment.

So who is Russia Today really?

Russia TodayRussia Today was founded by RIA Novosti, the state owned news agency of Russia, in 2005.  RT also shared space with RIA Novosti though it maintains a separate operational environment. In 2012 RT moved to a new state of the art broadcast facility which was subsidized by the Russian government and in 2013 Vladamir Putin issued a presidential decree dissolving RIA Novosti and formed a new information agency called Rossiya Segodnya or translated Russia Today.  RT was very quick to point out that Rossiya Segodnya was a seperate entity, but as of Dec. 31st 2013 Margarita Simonyan, the Editor and Chief of RT News, was appointed as Editor and Chief of Rossiya Segodyna which she holds along with her day to day responsibilities with RT effectively giving Simonyan editorial control over both operations at once.

At its founding RT received a total of $30m from RIA Novosti along with additional funds which have been traced back to banks and companies who are supporters of Putin.  From that point the RT annual budget has grown to over $300m and has been protected by order of Vladamir Putin. You can see more about that here.

putin_russia_todayThe Christian Science Monitor Reported:

According to Russian media, the Kremlin funds RT to the tune of about $300-million annually, and Putin last year personally forbade the government to slash its funding.

In the UK, OFSCOM which is the standard and practices entity has investigated RT to determine if the news they are presenting is unbiased and factual.  Apparently OFSCOM has investigated RT no less then six times.

According to the OFSCOM spokesman

Ofcom has launched an investigation into whether this programme about the situation in Ukraine, which included anti-western comments, was duly impartial.

imagesWhat I really found disturbing was a section of a Buzzfeed article about RT:

Soon after joining the network, the current and former employees said, they realized they were not covering news, but producing Russian propaganda. Some employees go in clear-eyed, looking for the experience above all else. Others don’t realize what RT really wants until they’re already there. Still others are chosen for already having displayed views amenable to the Kremlin. Anti-American language is injected into TV scripts by editors, and stories that don’t toe the editorial line regularly get killed.

This is consistent with other statements made by former reporters who left RT.  Many cited strict editorial control and the silencing of alternate viewpoints as primary motivations for their departure.

That being said it seems to me that these constant RT generated headlines about conspiracies, UFOs, and the decline of the west are being very carefully crafted and frankly having the desired result but should we trust them?  Probably not at this point and after researching it and trying to make sense of it I really need to question what Ventura is thinking because his association with such an organization would be counter to his beliefs, at leas the ones I am aware of.  But don't believe me, do the research.  To that end I am providing a list of just a few articles about RT at the end of this article.

So who is PressTV?

press_tvAnother popular information source appears to be PressTV and one of their self styled analysts Gordon Duff (Editor of Veterans Today).  Duff, who is a controversial figure, is also a  go to source for conspiracy headlines so lets explore who he is a Analyst for.

PressTV was founded in 2007 and is a division of the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting or IRIB.  IRIB is independent of the Iranian government butit has been reported they hold a strong loyalty to the current conservative political group as well as the Revolutionary Guard. (More details are here at the bottom of the article). It is also important to point out that the head of IRIB is appointed by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei directly and that IRIB/PressTV is the only legal news source in Iran.  PressTV has also been the source of a fair amount of controversy, the claims of which are too numerous to place in this article so I would suggest you check out this article for more information.

gordon-duff-press-tvSo how does Gordon Duff play into this?  Well from time to time Gordon Duff functions as an official analyst for their broadcasts and speaks authoritatively on military subjects, politics and a whole host of other subjects. He is seen or at least presented as PressTV's commentator on these subjects.  A case in point is an article on Veterans Today called "Armageddon watch over Syria" which is by "Gordon Duff and Press TV." What's particularly interesting about that article is that you have a article co-written by PressTV (an Iranian propaganda machines) which has the American flag in its background.  The juxtaposition Americanism with Iranian propaganda is fascinating and very intentional but what is more interesting is the fact that Duff and others from Veterans Today participated, in Syria, at a counterterrorism conference sponsored by PressTV - you can read the article here.

gordon-duff-press-tv-damascus-syriaThe coverage by Veterans Today was also interesting:

Since we have no budget to be corporate raiders to buy out the Murdoch media empires of the world, we have to focus on the tools that we do have. The main ones included the alternative media where we have made great gains. Press TV has been clawing its way back out of the sanctions rabbit hole, and Veterans Today has seen a huge growth in its radio audience over the last few months, with 5 million viewers a week now.

This excerpt seemed to place Veterans Today solidly in cohoots with PressTV. It is also important to point out that the sanctions which are referenced were due to state sponsored terrorism charges and the outright falsifications of news reports.

Perhaps the most stunning revelation about Veterans Today and Gordin Duff was his own admission that at least 30% of what is published by Veterans Today and 40% of what Gordon Duff writes is false.  Don't believe me?  Too shocking for words?  Listen to Gordon Duff and his own words...

So what are we to do?  RESEARCH!  No one out there has the full truth and as a person who is interested in the subject you need to find it yourself.  Do the research and come to your own conclusions.  Don't let these subjects be spoonfed to you because you can't always trust the person holding the spoon. But one thing is certain - I would not trust RT, Veterans Today or Gordon Duff.  That's just my opinion.

Mary Tyler Moore Member of the Process Church? Uh What is the Process Church Again?

process church logoSo what is the Process Church, or the The Process Church of the Final Judgement?  Originally founded in the 1960's in London, the Process Church was a splinter group of the Scientology movement founded by Mary Anne and Robert DeGromston. Although they were a splinter of Scientology the group was later classified as "suppressive persons" by L. Ron Hubbard in 1965.  In 1966 the group moved to Xtul in the Yucatan where  they developed the "Processing Theology." A theology were they worshiped by Christ and Satan believing both entities would eventually come together to judge the world and eventually execute final judgement.

The church has also been linked to CIA  mind control experiments as well as general mind control activities and has a very interesting roster of members including Charles Manson, David Berkovitz (The Son of Sam), and several other notorious members. All of whom, it has been claimed, are mind control victums.

Charles-MansonCharles Manson!

Vincent Bugliosi, the prosecutor during the Charles Manson family trial, stated in "Helter Skelter" that Manson appeared to used much of the  philosophy from the Process Church in his beliefs. This is further supported by the fact that representatives of the Church visited him in jail after his arrest. According to those representatives, the purpose of the visit was to discover if Manson had any contact with the Church or received any literature about the Church. The group published an extensive article about Manson and their jail visit in the The Process magazine's special "Death" issue.

Mary Tyler Moore?

It is unclear if Mary Tyler Moore was actually a member but a recently unearthed photo shows her in firm possession, and flaunting, a copy of the Process Magazine while visiting Merry Old England.  If so she would not be the first Hollywood star to be attracted to such and organization.  Jane Mansfield was known to have been an associate of Anton LeVay and there are many photos of them together. The late entertainer Sammy David Jr. was also a member of LeVay's organization and in a letter to Dr. Michael Aquino, Davis accepted membership 3/17/73 and was formally admitted 4/13/73.

9627c445c518c83e17edad1c6e9b4b6eMary Tyler Moore is one of the most beloved actresses of her generation, and while possessing a copy of The Process does not mean she was a member, posing with it does makes a statement.  What this does mean is that she was aware of the organization and had taken the time to at least read the magazine which would be filled with Process Theology.  The issue it's self, called the "The Sex Issue" dealt apparently with "Sex: Lucifer, Satan, Jehovah and the  Grey Forces.  Three Paths and a Quagmire" which dealt with sex in connotation of its relationship to the Process Churches three gods.

While there is no evidence Mary Tyler Moore ever did join the cult, it is again an interesting side note to history to be seen and pose with their magazine.  Makes you wonder...

 

Process Theology
(From the Wikipedia)

The term "processean theology" distinguishes these ideas from the process theology derived from the thoughts of Alfred North Whitehead.

In Xtul was the first "channeling" of God. After Xtul, Jehovah was the only recognized God. Later, with Jehovah, Lucifer and Satan were recognized as "The Three Great Gods of the Universe" and Christ as the Emissary to the Gods. The Three Great Gods represent three basic human patterns of reality:

  • Jehovah, the wrathful God of vengeance and retribution, demands discipline, courage and ruthlessness, and a single-minded dedication to duty, purity and self-denial.
  • Lucifer, the Light Bearer, urges followers to enjoy life to the full, to value success in human terms, to be gentle and kind and loving, and to live in peace and harmony with one another. Man's apparent inability to value success without descending into greed, jealousy and an exaggerated sense of his own importance, has brought the God Lucifer into disrepute. He has become mistakenly identified with Satan.
  • Satan, the receiver of transcendent souls and corrupted bodies, instills in followers two directly opposite qualities; at one end an urge to rise above all human and physical needs and appetites, to become all soul and no body, all spirit and no mind, and at the other end a desire to sink beneath all human codes of behavior, and to wallow in a morass of violence, lunacy and excessive physical indulgence. But it is the lower end of Satan's nature that men fear, which is why Satan, by whatever name, is seen as the Adversary.

In between these Three Great Gods and man, is an entire hierarchy of Gods, beings and superbeings, angels and archangels, demons and archdemons, elementals and guides, and fallen angels and watchers.

The Process believes that, to varying degrees, these "God-patterns" exist within everyone. The main doctrine of The Process is the unity of Christ and Satan, who exist as opposites. Jehovah and Lucifer exist as opposites and when Christ and Satan are united, this will unite Jehovah and Lucifer.

In the original 1960s literature of the church, Christ, Lucifer, Satan and Jehovah were all arranged on a mandala, with Christ at the top opposite Satan on the bottom and Jehovah on the left opposite Lucifer on the right.

(The descriptions of the Gods comes from a teaching called 'The Hierarchy' published in December 1967, as a part of 'The Tide of the End'.)

Secret Space Station Caught on SOHO Image!

by Olav Phillips

There has recently been a lot of buzz which has emerged about a interesting object found in a SOHO image from the LASCO C3 camera which has been making the rounds as a new UFO sighting and in some circles even being blamed for the destruction of a US Air Force weather satellite. While the object is very interesting and does present some fascinating implications it appears to be more likely some sort of space platform in use by the ever present "Secret Space Program."

So what's the deal? In a March 1st image off the SOHO satellite you can clearly see this object fairly well illuminated sitting within the field of the camera. At first glance it actually bears a striking resemblance to the DRAX Industries space station seen in the film Moonraker. The general design of the object has lead me to think it might be a space platform of some sort, in fact its design is erely similar to an early USAF / NASA design for the Multimodule Operational National Multipurpose Space Station which was port forth in the early 1960's.

USAF/NASA CONCPET - 1960

Based on its general design it would appear to be a platform with multiple solar panels and modules, most likely very human in design. But its design is not what is truly perplexing. What is more interesting about this object is that it can only be found using the LASCO C3 camera. The LASCO C2 camera does not seem to display the object.

LASCO C3 IMAGE WITH OBJECT

LASCO C2 IMAGE WITH NO OBJECT

 

So why would that be? To understand that we need to look at the LASCO C3 vs. the LASCO C2 cameras.  According to SpaceWeather.com the main difference is field of view:

LASCO (Large Angle Spectrometric Coronagraph) is able to take images of the solar corona by blocking the light coming directly from the Sun with an occulter disk, creating an artificial eclipse within the instrument itself. The position of the solar disk is indicated in the images by the white circle. The most prominent feature of the corona are usually the coronal streamers, those nearly radial bands that can be seen both in C2 and C3. Occasionally, a coronal mass ejection can be seen being expelled away from the Sun and crossing the fields of view of both coronagraphs. The shadow crossing from the lower left corner to the center of the image is the support for the occulter disk.

C2 images show the inner solar corona up to 8.4 million kilometers (5.25 million miles) away from the Sun.

C3 images have a larger field of view: They encompass 32 diameters of the Sun. To put this in perspective, the diameter of the images is 45 million kilometers (about 30 million miles) at the distance of the Sun, or half of the diameter of the orbit of Mercury. Many bright stars can be seen behind the Sun.

This could indicate the object, which is a dead ringer for the 1960's Multimodule Operational National Multipurpose Space Station, could have been out of the field of view of the C2 camera. It could also indicate that there is some sort of "cloaking" device which was defeated by the C3 camera for some reason. The objective fields of view of the camera's so different it would most likely appear the object is much further out from the Sun.

So is the object alien?  Most likely it is not.  Many sites are reporting this object as being a UFO, which in some ways it is since we cannot readily identify it, but due to its composition and overall design it feels very human.  I can't tell you why it is there or what it is doing but its design is human. I know its very easy to jump on the bandwagon and claim this is a alien object. Frankly that's the easier answer, if its not then we have a lot of figuring out to do...

What's also interesting is that more and more of these objects are being found, which would indicate the "Secret Space Program" is very far along and our solar system is dotting with platforms and ships making the rounds. In human terms, this is what we should expect.  If the "Secret Space Program" is indeed out there, which I have argued time and time again, then we should be finding ore of these and honestly we are.  Everyday, at an accelerating rate, we are finding more mysterious and obviously human objects which we were not told about.  It also seems to me to indicate that they are growing and preparing for something.
