This is part three of six of “Evidence of Revision,” an eight-hour video collection which covers many a taboo subject in American history including the assassinations of JFK, RFK and MLK, the causes of the Vietnam war, the social uprisings of the 1960s and ’70s, the Jonestown massacre, government mind control programs such as MKULTRA, and vote rigging and political corruption at the highest levels. Coming on the heels of part two’s in-depth discussion of the corruption of the Johnson administration, this installment shifts the focus onto the blackmailing of FBI head J. Edgar Hoover, who for years denied the existence of organized crime, and then returns to LBJ’s possible connections to the JFK assassination. Attorney General Robert Kennedy, the President’s brother, made it clear that it was his ambition to relentlessly pursue the mafia and found no friend at all in Hoover in this. Perhaps we can find some insight in Hoover’s statement that “Justice is merely incidental to law and order. Law and order is what covers the whole picture.” [END] Permalink: Evidence of Revision 3: LBJ, Hoover and Others
Citizen Investigation Team’s “National Security Alert” represents the culmination of several years of independent research on the Pentagon portion of the 9/11 attacks. CIT’s conclusions are that American Airlines Flight 77 or if not AA77, whichever plane actually was witnessed in the Pentagon’s vicinity around the time of the attack, not only did not hit the building but that the plane flew along a different flight path than what CIT refers to as the “south side” approach, a hypothetical approach which was embraced by the 9/11 Commission. The light poles which were downed along this “south side” trajectory and which supposedly damaged Lloyde England‘s taxi cab as they fell would therefore have been damaged by other means. This is a must-watch video for understanding the nature of the event which served as the pretext for the highly dangerous so-called “War on Terror.” [END] Permalink: National Security Alert
Between 2003 and 2006, not a great deal of new research on 9/11 was performed. A majority of the information which circulated at this time criticizing the official story of the attacks was based upon points which had already been made in years prior. In 2007, however, the Citizen Investigation Team published new information in “The PentaCon,” a video which summarized their original interviews with eyewitnesses to the Pentagon attack, a segment of the attacks which had left so many researchers confused due to the lack of video footage of the event and other factors. From their research, the CIT group came to the conclusion that a large airplane had most likely flown toward the Pentagon along a different trajectory than the official one, then flew over the top of the section of the Pentagon which showed damage later on while an explosion of some other origin occurred which was responsible for the explosion there. Many of the witnesses to this event specifically stated that the plane made its approach on the north side rather than the south side of a CITGO gas station near to the Pentagon, meaning that the plane’s trajectory could not match the official version and its downed light poles and other damage.

The above debate, filmed by the now-defunct Free Market News Network, features the 2004 Libertarian and Green Party candidates for United States President, Michael Badnarik and David Cobb. Both candidates raise some very interesting points about the two dominant American political parties and discuss their experiences in growing their organizations in a climate as hostile to political competition as contemporary America. Let us consider, for instance, the very name which is used for political parties other than the Democratic and Republican parties: “third party.” The most often-used meaning of this term is one who is outside or an observer to a transaction, i. e., a non-participant or marginal participant in a process. Certainly, though, these two candidates represent parties with coherent and comprehensive platforms which deserve America’s consideration. Former independent Presidential candidate John B. Anderson also makes an appearance here and extensive commentary is provided by the Libertarian commentators from FMNN, including former Libertarian U. S. Presidential candidate Harry Browne.
This second debate, filmed by C-SPAN, features 2008 U. S. Presidential candidates Chuck Baldwin of the Constitution Party, Bob Barr of the Libertarian Party, and independent candidate Ralph Nader.
Finally, this third debate is from the 2008 Green Party Presidential primaries out of which former Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney was nominated. In addition to these three relatively large national parties, there are also some smaller state-based political parties and other parties which are, today, relatively inactive. Politics 1 and The Green Papers have additional information and statistics. [END] Permalink: “Third Party” Politics in America
