Washington, D.C., October 7, 2017: “The Internet is filled with useful information and also is the breeding ground for all kinds of rip-off scams, be they fake news stories (“Russia responsible for ear wax problems!” screams the Washington Post) and such things as pictures of beautiful women (and men) with invitations to communicate.

Or notices from African sources about enormous legacies available to the recipient.

One interesting major fraud deals with faked German Third Reich political, military and personality items.

Fake Hitler paintings, rare tapestries, recently-invented expensive decorations and fancy and fictional daggers and swords are reaping a multi-million dollar harvest to a legion of dishonest dealers.

Interestingly enough, many of these dealers are Jewish and how they can have made, advertise and sell Nazi souvenirs is beyond the comprehension of a rational person.

But money is involved so therein must lie the answer.”

Washington, D.C., October 6, 2017: “We are including in this issue a complete copy of the well-known but little publicized Bunche Report. This is a position paper prepared for Ralph Bunche in 1948 when he took over the reins of the UN personnel in Palestine. Because of its nature, we personally checked on many of the items to ascertain if it was entirely reliable. This was done by the simple expedient of going to a local library and looking through old New York Times articles. Once we found all the items to be correct, we are publishing this to show some of the background in the current Israeli/Arab conflicts.”

Washington, D.C., October 5, 2017: “Because the bulk of the American print media is filled with fake stories, the public turns for its news from Internet sources. They are, in general, free but the danger is that many sites are packed with deliberate lies and obfuscations.

In order to obtain a balanced view of world, and local, events, the wheat must be separated from the chaff.

For example, Russia Today is run by the Russian government.

Nevertheless, its articles are generally quite factual. The choice of the articles, however, is a form of propaganda.

But then the New York Times and the Washington Post are packed with often grotesque misinformation and propaganda.

Reuters, a British site, is the first with important news but it tends to be slanted against the Trump administration.

Such purported news sites like Infowars or Rense are merely sites to entertain and amuse a serious reader.

Interspersed with legitimate and often accurate news, we find YouTube, Facebook and Twitter packed with badly constructed propaganda, mostly by design but often by accident.”

Washington, D.C., October 4, 2017: “The official response by Madrid to the Catalonian referendum on independence was to send in armed police to prevent the event. They were seen beating up the elderly, dragging voters into the street and kicking them and other unpleasant actions. This has succeeded in swinging a great deal of support to the Catalonian project and now the Basques are moving towards separatism and the Scots are watching the events with interest. Didn’t the self-righteous President Wilson speak of the “self-determination of people?” Of course his actions at Versailles led directly to Hitler and Mussolini but by that time, Wilson was dead, Times change and we must change with them.”

Washington, D.C., October 1, 2017: “When people download a film from Netflix to a flatscreen, or turn on web radio, they could be alerting unwanted watchers to exactly what they are doing and where they are.

Spies will no longer have to plant bugs in your home – the rise of ‘connected’ gadgets controlled by apps will mean that people ‘bug’ their own homes.

The CIA claims it will be able to ‘read’ these devices via the internet – and perhaps even via radio waves from outside the home.

Everything from remote controls to clock radios can now be controlled via apps – and chip company ARM recently unveiled low-powered, cheaper chips which will be used in everything from fridges and ovens to doorbells.

These web-connected gadgets will ‘transform’ the art of spying – allowing spies to monitor people automatically without planting bugs, breaking and entering or even donning a tuxedo to infiltrate a dinner party.

‘Particularly to their effect on clandestine tradecraft. Items of interest will be located, identified, monitored, and remotely controlled through technologies such as radio-frequency identification, sensor networks, tiny embedded servers, and energy harvesters –  all connected to the next-generation internet using abundant, low-cost, and high-power computing.’

One of the world’s biggest chip companies, ARM, has unveiled a new processor built to work inside ‘connected’ white goods.

The ARM chips are smaller, lower-powered and far cheaper than previous processors – and designed to add the internet to almost every kind of electrical appliance.

It’s a concept described as the ‘internet of things’.”

Washington, D.C., September 30, 2017: “There is an interesting, and potentially very embarrassing rumor being bruted about inside the Beltway. It concerns the fate of a huge amount of foreign gold placed in what the foreign nations who owned it believed would safety during the Cold War. The coffee house gossip has it that the gold was disposed of some time ago and is now all in China. I am waiting to get more information on this and when I do, up it will go, names and all.”

Washington, D.C., September 29, 2017: “Here is an email posted on a truly lunatic Internet site which, if true, is funnier than watching Hillary having an epileptic seizure during one of her speeches:

‘What you say about the Potter books is 100% correct! Our son Pauli, who was only 9 years old, set the cat on fire last week and poor Mr. Spats made terrible cries and ran around the living room until he burned up. He ran under a couch and set it on fire and my husband, Karl, was so upset that he chased Pauli outside and beat him with a garden hoe but in the meantime, the couch set the house on fire and Grandma Tom was asleep upstairs and didn’t make it out.

We found the Potter book in Pauli’s tree house along with terrible pictures of naked ladies and an empty muscatel bottle so I agree that these books have to be banned forever! Now that Pauli and Grandma Tom are dead, the writer of this book and the bookstores that sell it ought to be shot.

Maybe we can get CaptainPissGums to do this for us. Won’t a fellow blogger help us? America turns her eager eyes to you, sir.’”

Washington, D.C., September 28, 2017: “The Internet has proven to be the greatest source of information since lunatic Christians burnt down the library of Alexandria. Anything being sought, be it an address or an in-depth analysis of Dead Sea scrolls, is there and is the main reason that the famous Encyclopedia Britannica has gone out of business.

At the same time, because it is open to one and all, the Internet is also a breeding ground for a legion of strange persons with a frantic desire to air their pet theses, themselves and their friends.

We see earnest discussions about the 1963 assassination of President Kennedy, the Sinister Truth about Hurricane Katrina, Tesla Death Rays used to bring down the buildings of the WTC, balanced with other information proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that Russian bombers were used.

We also discover the evil plottings of the Illuminiati, a group that has been long gone, or that the Rothschild banking house had taken over the whole world. And from one source, now long  vanished, we discover that Houston was destroyed by a nuclear bomb set off by Jewish radicals or that the Fukishima disaster was really caused by an Israeli submarine, using German-made nuclear torpedoes! And at the moment, we are entertained by the frantic official, and semi-official, attempts to prove that the Russians managed to defeat Hillary in the last election. Of course the fact that the private emails some currently unknown entity released are all true but truth has nothing to do with desired perception.

Yes, the Internet can entertain as well as inform.

But the fact that the Internet has many independent news sites means the diminution of the print media and the television news stations. Since these are the propaganda control for the oligarchy, there is great distress in board rooms and from them to the halls of Congress. They would like to shut off the Internet so that the stupid, and tax-paying public can only see what they are supposed to and not what might be the truth.

Obama and Cass Sunstein tried to shut down anyone who dared to interfere with the Internet machinery that they could not control, but they were not successful. Even a furious Hillary and her machinery can’t do it and if they continue to try, there will be very serious public reactions indeed.”
