Nullifying the First Amendment

By Jacob G. Hornberger | FFF | June 9, 2021

Whenever some foreign regime that is independent of the U.S. Empire goes after dissenters, U.S. officials trot out the First Amendment to show how different the United States is. Here, people are free to criticize government officials without fear of being put in jail or otherwise punished for exercising their free speech rights, they proudly point out.

Nullifying the First Amendment

The United States Started the Korean War

The history taught Americans is that North Korean forces attacked South Korea in 1950 and almost overran that new nation until the US military came to the rescue. This is true but does not explain that the United States government wanted a war. Major American industries had suffered with the loss of military business after the end of World War II, while wealthy Americans sought an excuse to expel the communists from China to recover their businesses. These groups conspired with the administration of President Harry Truman to lure North Korea to attack.

UK: Former MI6 chief behind faked “evidence” for Iraq war leading anti-China Wuhan lab conspiracy

Former MI6 chief behind faked “evidence” for Iraq war leading anti-China Wuhan lab conspiracy

It is not accidental that the Wall Street Journal author, Michael R. Gordon, was the same man who, along with Judith Miller, wrote the September 8, 2002 article asserting Iraqi President Saddam Hussein was seeking to build a nuclear weapon. The claim was a lie, funnelled to the pair by the office of Republican Vice President Dick Cheney. But before it could be irrefutably discredited, it had served its purpose in politically legitimising the Iraq war and occupation that has killed over a million people.

Likewise, the main public “intelligence” proponent of the Wuhan lab conspiracy in Britain is former MI6 chief Sir Richard Dearlove. He first made the claim in a Telegraph podcast in June 2020, shortly after Trump’s secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, said he had “enormous evidence” to back this up, before quickly backtracking.


Study alleges China created coronavirus in lab, tried to cover tracks

As I’ve pointed out, before:

Dalgleish/Sorensen published a prior study, blaming China, which was rejected twice before eventually being published in Cambridge University’s Quarterly Review of Biophysics Discovery. One of the authors, John Fredrik Moxnes (who asked to have his name removed) has ties to the Norwegian military. Sir Richard Dearlove (former head of MI6), featured in this article, graduated from Cambridge University, himself* (Original article is behind a paywall)

QRB Discovery is published by Cambridge University Press, despite what the Telegraph article stated (were they hiding something?!).

*Cambridge University seems to be a recruiting ground for MI5/MI6.

The Etymological Animal Must Slip Out of the Cage of Habit to Grasp Truth

Words slip out of our mouths to surprise us. Thoughts slip into our minds to shock us. Dreams slip into our nights to sometimes slip into our waking thoughts to startle us. And, as the wonderful singer/songwriter Paul Simon, sings, we are always “slip sliding away,” a reminder that can be a spur to courage and freedom or an inducement to fear and shut-upness.
