Remembering 9/11: The Time Come to Change the Narrative from Fiction to Fact

Prescott Bush shaking hands with Adolf Hitler
As many people reflect and remember what happened September 11, 2001 there are some items the American people need to consider that’s largely remained hidden. Quite frankly the world has been seriously duped into believing the terrorists ascended from abroad when actuality they were born and bred on American soil.

George W. Bush has long been relaxing in his new spread in Texas knowing he pulled a fast one on the American people. Bush managed to ride off into the sunset after destroying this country by socially engineering people that 9/11 was perpetrated by outsiders when it was an inside job by the American government. Perhaps if you knew the Bush family legacy and how they operated you’d likely conclude many have indeed been seriously duped. The time has come for the people to stop embracing the fictitious narratives and embrace the truth.

In 1966 George W. Bush’s grandfather Prescott Bush, stated the following, “There's three things to remember: claim everything, explain nothing, and deny everything.”

Embracing such an ideological framework got Prescott Bush was indicted under the Trading with the Enemy Act for funding Adolph Hitler and the Nazis in 1942. Bush, along with business partner W. Averill Harriman, funneled money to Hitler from 1926-1942. As a result, the government seized all of Bush’s and Harriman’s business assets. Interesting, while Prescott Bush was sleeping with the enemy his son, George H.W. Bush, fought against the Germans in World War II while in the Navy.

Despite his criminal deeds Prescott Bush served in the Senate from 1952 to 1963 despite. I suppose it you “claim everything, explain nothing, and deny everything.” Criminals like Prescott Bush can get the proverbial pass stemming from white privilege.

The Prescott Bush story has been kept under wraps for over 70 years because mainstream media was told by the powers that be, as the Beatles would say, “let it be.”

The 41st President of the United States George H.W. Bush has long ties to the Bin Laden Family. When George H.W. was head of the CIA in the 1980’s he hired Osama Bin Laden to train Al-Qaeda fighters to ward of Russian Communists. Matter of fact, on the morning of 9/11 George H.W. was in a secret meeting at the Ritz Carlton with the brother of Osama Bin Laden, Salem Bin Laden in Washington D.C. talking business.

George H.W. Bush in meeting at the Washington D.C.
The 43rd President of the United States George W. Bush is just like daddy. In 1978 Salem Bin Laden help fund George W’s first oil business by giving him more than 1 million dollars.
We know 9/11 happened on Bush’s watch. We know he lied on television about when he saw the planes hit the towers. With the relationships as outlined above it would be reasonable to conclude Bush had first-hand information on when the attacks were going to happen and who was behind them.

Unlike his late grandfather Prescott Bush, George W. did his dirt before our eyes. With the help of fellow government terrorists Bush manipulated the media just like his grandfather. Matter of fact George W. enlisted the aid from his little brother, Jeb Bush of Florida to manipulate the polls in stealing the 2000 election from Al Gore so he could occupy the oval office to pull of his heist.

To make certain he’d engineer America away from his trickery he created a war in Iraq. Moreover, George W. further diverted our attention when he killed Suddam Hussein when he should’ve been after business partner Osama Bin Laden.

Did you know Marvin Bush, brother of George W., was head of a security at the World Trade Center at the time of the terrorist attacks?

Coincidence or part of the carefully orchestrated plan?

Considering how the three towers collapsed many believe they were blown up demolition style. If you all remember, Tower No.7 fell and it was never hit. Also, where is the debris from the plane that supposedly hit the Pentagon?

Remember?

In any event, if the metal was tested it would have cleared up any confusion as to how the towers fell but a funny thing happened; all of the structural steel from the towers was removed and destroyed before it could be tested by a company called Controlled Demolition.

No evidence, not tests, no clarity.

The dirt is kept from the masses because the media is controlled by the power elite. The Rothschild family bought Reuters in the early 1800’s: they also own the Associated Press along with three major television networks. Mainstream newspapers and networks get their info from the AP. Also, the Rothschild’s and the Bush family are Skull and Bones members. This secret society strongly influences what information is disseminated globally, what students learn in school, and how the masses live. In short, we all are slaves to the system. Some more so than others.

The media has reduced the masses to puppets. While many watch reality TV shows like Keep up with the Kardashians, play X-Box or playing fantasy-football, the world is moving towards a New World Order that in actuality is the Old World Order revamped. The power elite have socially engineered the minds of Americans to make us think one thing when, another is transpiring.

As those of you to remember the deaths of that happened during 9/11 also bear in mind who is responsible for those deaths. Some of the egregious and criminal acts ever been perpetrated to date yet nobody has been brought to justice.

Instead of celebrating and remembering what happened shouldn’t there simultaneously be an independent investigation as to exactly what happened?

If there was an open investigation perhaps many of those who have been duped can stop living a proverbial lie.

Ray Rice: Has the Media Destroyed Ray Rice’s Career?


Ray Rice was given his walking papers by the Baltimore Ravens after video released by TMZ showed Rice punching his wife Janay Rice in the elevator of an Atlantic City in February.

Soon after the incident Rice married his then fiancé, took his punishment in stride and began to move on with his life. Rice was set to serve a two-game suspension handed down by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell but, amid the recent video, Goodell amended his verdict by suspending Rice indefinitely.

After watching the video several times over it’s unquestionably damning and revealing. Seeing Rice’s wife face down after being struck was alarming indeed. But were the Ravens and the NFL justified in stripping Rice of his ability to make a living as a result?

I find it hard to believe the recent video that just surfaced wasn’t already viewed by the NFL. The timing of its release doesn’t feel right nor does it pass the smell test in my opinion. Furthermore, I don’t believe Rice should be stripped of his ability to earn a living for an offense he’s already paid for privately, legally and publicly.

The media is the biggest culprit in this whole situation because it picks and chooses who to bring down. Let’s take the case of Indianapolis Colts owner Robert Irsay. Here’s a billionaire owner who was under the influence of drugs, charged with a DWI and four felony counts of possession of a controlled substance. Irsay has had long battled the demons of alcohol and drugs yet he gets a pass from the media.

While Rice has been habitually battered by the media Irsay quietly has copped a plea and was suspended by the NFL for six games and fined $500,000. No revealing coverage-just a small segment on the ticker.

Why hasn’t the media persistently shown Irsay failing sobriety tests along side the road at 3a.m.?

Why hasn’t Irsay been shown on video being taken to jail on the regular?

In my opinion Irsay’s actions as an owner are more egregious than Rice’s as a player. Irsay is supposed to set a standard by leading a franchise, not abusing drugs and alcohol in the wee hours of the morning.

Yes, Rice struck his wife for all to see. A terrible thing but, does he maintain a history of abusing women like Irsay has in abusing drugs and alcohol?

Has Rice historically been a menace to society?

The media has long created an atmosphere of negativity around African-Americans for their transgressions yet often issue media passes to whites.

Remember Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisbergerand his alleged sexual assaults?

I do.

Roethlisberger was accused of multiple sexual assault charges—most recently in 2010 in Milledgeville, Georgia—yet the sports media kept the situation quiet. You have a two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback providing alcohol to a 20-year old minor with allegations of sexual assault yet that wasn’t worthy of persistent coverage?

Interesting enough the surveillance video of the incident that took place on the night of March 4, 2010, which could have provided further insight as to what transpired, were somehow taped over.

No evidence, no crime.

Yet in Rice’s case the media kept digging until they found what they needed to help destroy this man’s family and career. No, the media didn’t strike Janay Rice across the face but it certainly has created the necessary atmosphere to strike her family down.

Why wasn’t the same level of persistence utilized by the media against Roethlisberger and Irsay?

The answer boils down to a lack of diversity in sports media and ignorance. When over 90, 80, 80 and 90 percent respectively of the sports editors, reporters, columnists and copy editors are white disseminated information will largely reflect the ideological framework of those providing coverage.

Allow me to be very clear direct here: I’m not excusing, diffusing nor justifying Rice’s actions here. What he did was wrong and I have no issue with him being punished. My issue is with the inconsistent media coverage African-Americans receive resulting from the lack of diversity in society and sports.

If we live in a society where senseless deaths like Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown take place how can there be equitable administration of justice in sport without diversity?

How can former President Bill Clinton receive a pass for his “sexual relations” with Monica Lewinsky back in the day yet Tiger Woods can be persistently hammered by the media for his sexual transgressions?

How can the ilk of Lance Armstrong—who was found to be a fraud and a bully who duped the American people in the name of cancer—be issued a media pass but there’s still a segment of the country can’t stand Michael Vick for funding a gambling ring and torturing dogs?

How can George W. Bush be given a pass by the media for destroying the fabric of this country while current President Barack Obama continues to endure the wrath of racist rhetoric from a segment of the media contingent and society?

This shouldn’t be an issue of race but let’s face it folks, it is. For every Plaxico Burress, Michael Vick, Tiger Woods, Ray Lewis and Kobe Bryant being crucified by the media for their past transgressions whites like Ben Roethlisberger, Roger Clemens, Lance Armstrong, Jim Irsay, and Mark McGwire get passes. Whites, by way of the media, are allowed to comfortably ease into their premeditated obscurity while many African-Americans don’t have such a luxury.

In closing, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. I have no issue the hammer being brought down on Rice for his actions so long as that same hammer being brought down consistently scrutinizes whites for their transgressions as well.

Rashard Mendenhall, 9/11 and Freedom of Speech: Can We All Just Speak Our Minds?

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall's statements regarding the announcement that Osama Bin Laden was killed have come under fire.

From his Twitter account Mendenhall issued the following: "What kind of person celebrates death? It is amazing how people can HATE a man they have never even heard speak. We've only heard one side..."

Mendenhall then went on to express his thoughts on the Sept. 11 attacks.

"We'll never know what really happened. I just have a hard time believing a plane could take a skyscraper down demolition style."

Yesterday Mendenhall went into damage control.  I do not understand why.  I thought there was a thing called freedom of speech.

Well, I guess it exists for those in the majority.

Mendenhall issued the following yesterday to clarify what he we attempting to say.  He stated in his blog, “Nothing I said was meant to stir up controversy. It was my way to generate conversation.”

Mendenhall continues, “In looking at my timeline in its entirety, everything that I’ve said is with the intent of expressing a wide array of ideas and generating open and honest discussions, something I believe we as American citizens should be able to do. Most opinions will not be fully agreed upon and are not meant to be. However, I believe every opinion should be respected or at least given some thought.”

I will just get right to the point: I do not see anything wrong with what Mendenhall asserted on his Twitter account.  He is free to express himself the way he see fits. 

Mendenhall suggested he merely wanted to “generate conversation.”

Since when is that against the law?

Are people so rigid and programmed in their thinking it becomes impossible to consider a vantage that may be different than the majority?

Personally, I do not believe Mendenhall needed to clarify his statements or apologize.  I have grown weary of people who make statements who throw their rock but hide their hand. 

In my opinion, an individual should not apologize for something they truly believe in.  All men and women, while human, also have varied personalities and thoughts.  Mendenhall expressed a mode of thinking that is not in the majority view. 

Just because a view is to widely popular does not mean it is not worthy of critical discussion.

Does Mendenhall have the right to express his views even though they rival mainstream ideology?

I love the fact athletes who have a conscious to make their feelings known.  Just because you earn a lot of money, play professional sports and are a highly visible personality does not mean one has to subscribe to being docile and obedient.

Furthermore, what Mendenhall asserted was not necessarily controversial: He just stated something many have thought but were fearful of expressing in a public forum.

It is true that there is essentially one side of the story regarding what really transpired during the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

In my view, it is extremely plausible to assert how two world-class structures could fall so suddenly.  If everyone remembers, Tower No. 7 fell a short period after the Twin Towers crumbled to the ground, yet it was not struck by any planes. 

What is wrong with Mendenhall asserting his perception of what he feels happened or did not happen?

I have digested some commentary where Mendenhall should be traded like Santonio Holmes or he should issue a real apology for his unpatriotic stance.

Give me a break.

It is not Mendenhall’s issue whether the owner of the Steelers and President Obama are friends.

It is not Mendenhall’s issue whether so many people who reside in this country do not have the guts to assert what they really feel. 

Not everyone wants to be status quo and be politically correct: Some people have minds and the ability to analyze for themselves.

Instead of condemning Mendenhall for his position, people should look at his statements and simply ask one question: Does what he suggests have a level of credence?

That would indicate a level of understanding and extending beyond one’s cerebral comfort zone to consider another vantage point than the majority view. 

Since a segment of this country is so programmed and narrow-minded, they would much rather cling to the comfort of conformity rather than extend beyond their self-imposed boundaries and experience, which can be characterized as thinking freely.

Bottom line: Freedom of speech exists in this country, but apparently it's only protected for those who subscribe to the majority view.

Cam Newton Is No. 1 in Carolina's Panthers Book: Let the Scrutiny Begin

It’s a done deal. 

The Carolina Panthers selected Cam Newton with the No. 1 pick in this years NFLdraft.
Newton caps a tumultuous year off the field but a superlative one on it.

Off the field Newton was the subject of persistent media scrutiny as he guided the Auburn Tigers to the BCS National Championship and an undefeated season.

Newton’s father, Cecil Newton, was believed to have brokered a deal for his son to play-for-pay at Mississippi State before he eventually settled on attending Auburn.  The media obviously feasted on the story.

Newton was scrutinized for his questionable character flaws and his fathers’ actions.  The media talked about an incident when Newton was at University of Florida he allegedly stole a lap top.  He was also accused of academic fraud while at Florida.

Newton moved on from Florida and played Junior College football where he guided Blinn College to the Division II National Championship in 2009.

As the 2010 college football season began Newton was not on the radar for winning the Heisman Trophy let alone leading Auburn to a national championship.   As the season went on Newton shined.  But as his star continued to shine brightly throughout the season so did the media scrutiny.

Despite the persistent bashing from the media and the questions about his past Newton blocked out all of the negativity and focused on winning.

When NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell called Newton’s name as the No. 1 pick in the 2011 NFL draft he became just the second player to win a national championship, the Heisman Trophy and be selected the top draft pick in a one-year span.  The first to do it was Notre Dame’s Leon Joseph Hart in 1950.

Now all Newton has to do is prove his critics wrong again by competing at the highest level and prove he belongs.

I’ve heard the likes of ESPN Todd McShay and others blast Newton.  McShay suggests he has physical talent yet lacks the intangibles to lead effectively in the NFL.  McShay has also suggested Newton’s work ethic may wane once he gets paid.

Blaine Gabbert and Jake Locker did not receive such scrutiny from McShay.

I wonder why.

Anyway, Newton proved his doubters wrong before and I think he will do it again.

Some suggest the way Newton has been characterized in the media leading up to the draft was outright racist.  Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon suggested recently suggested the following regarding Newton: “A lot of the criticism he’s receiving is unfortunate and racially based,” Moon continued.  “I thought we were all past this.  I don’t see other quarterbacks in the draft being criticized by the media or fans about their smile or called a phony.  He’s being held to different standards from white quarterbacks.  I thought we were past all this stuff about African-American quarterbacks, but I guess we’re not.”

What Moon suggested about Newton being scrutinized due to race is true in my opinion yet I don’t think it is quite as blatant as in the past.

History reveals there was once a time African-American quarterbacks out of college were not given opportunities to play quarterback in the NFL.  Simply put they were believed to be mentally inferior to whites.

Historically such ignorance has lead many African-American quarterbacks to be switched to other positions.  This ultimately reinforces the negative stereotype African-Americans are great athletes but don’t fare well in the ultimate thinking position of quarterback in the NFL.

Let’s look at the facts: Newton is a winner who plays a brand of football that’s not the prototypical style of play.  Without question Newton has both the physical and mental capability to be a franchise quarterback and revolutionize the position.

He can be characterized as a bigger stronger Michael Vick with notable power.

While the likes of McShay and other haters will continue to scrutinize Newton’s ability I’m quite sure he’ll continue to prove his doubters wrong despite the criticism.

Cincinnati Bengals: Why Is Carson Palmer Getting a Media Pass?

Why is Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer is getting the royal treatment from the media?

The embattled quarterback has consistently harped he wants out of Cincinnati.  Palmer has stated if he’s not traded he’ll simply retire.

Where’s the media outcry?

Why is the story flying so far under the radar?

I will give you part of the reason: Palmer’s trade demands are not deemed serious news due to the current media composition.

According the Institute of Diversity and Ethics in Sports, 94, 88, and 89 percent respectively of the sports editors, columnists, and reporters are white.

African-Americans account for 1, 6, and 8 percent respectively of the sports editors, columnists, and reporters in sports media.

African-Americans account for 68 percent of the players in the NFL.

Facts indicate the vast majority of the sports coverage we digest comes from a white vantage point.
Clearly there is a glaring disparity between the number of African-Americans covering the NFL and those who play the game.

Point blank, if Carson Palmer were African-American I’d venture to say he’d be scrutinized more in the media.

Late last year a Q-Score rating was issued which measured the most disliked athletes in sports.  The top six most hated athletes on the list were African-American.

Palmer’s teammates Chad Ochochinco and Terrell Owens were voted in the top six.

If either Ochocinco or Owens were demanding trades do you think the story would be covered more persistently than what Palmer has experienced up to this point?

Based on Palmer’s performance last year I don’t think he’s in a position to demand anything.  Sorry to burst anyone’s bubble but Palmer is not a top-flight quarterback in the NFL.  Ever since he made the Pro-Bowl in 2005-2006, Palmer’s quarterback rating has plummeted.

The past six seasons Palmer’s passer rating is as follows:

2005: 101.1
2006.  93.1
2007.  86.7
2008.  69.0
2009.  83.6
2010.  82.4

Palmer missed 12 games of 2008 season due to a knee injury but I don’t think the injury has anything to do with his current erratic play.

I believe part of the reason Palmer’s trade demands have flown under the radar is because he belongs to a distinct and privileged fraternity in the NFL: He’s a white quarterback in the NFL.  Based on past precedence, they evade criticism when it is richly deserved.

Brett Favre and Ben Roethlisberger are the poster-boys for being placed in the media’s witness protection program.

Favre was alleged to have sent inappropriate texts to Jenn Sterger while he was a New York Jet.  There was some talk Favre would be in hot water, but I knew better.  Turns out Commissioner Roger Goodell slapped the Golden Boy on the rear, fined him $50,000 and told him to enjoy his retirement.

Roethlisberger missed four games this past season for violating the personal conduct code.  He was accused of assaulting a 20-year-old co-ed in Milledgeville, Georgia just over a year ago.

Once the dust settled, the media gave Roethlisberger the space he needed to play football and work his PR campaign.  He did not have to worry about being asked tough questions—particularly at Media Day at this years’ Super Bowl—because he was protected by the lily-white media and his celebrity status.

Interesting how Michael Vick is still scrutinized to this day for a debt to society he paid two years ago.  Unlike Favre and Roethlisberger, Vick has consistently faced the media piper and answered tough questions.

If Vick had a season like Palmer and asked out of Philadelphia, you think he’d receive more media coverage than Palmer?

Palmer—a self-proclaimed elite quarterback who hasn’t showed any glimpses he belongs on that tier—is being protected by the media even though he has not demonstrated he belongs in the elite club.

Ochocinco has consistently been labeled an agitator who seeks the limelight.  He’s been portrayed as a loud-mouth who can be a distraction to team chemistry.

Sound familiar?

Rest assured, if Ochocinco had been kicking and screaming this off-season about a trade there would be media rumblings with nation-wide headlines.

Ochocinco recently stated the following via his Twitter account: “I love the media, I want out few years back im disgruntled n a distraction, I was sick of losing, Carson is tired of losing its still my fault?”

Ochocinco continued, "Carson Palmer demands a trade? Last person demanded a trade in Cincy was crucified by the media n had to win the fans back, how will this go?"

Then there’s Owens.  Owens has been labeled much of his career as being a cancer to the locker-room.  More notably he’s been accused of feuding with his quarterbacks and creating unnecessary friction.

If Owens had vocally blasted the Bengals organization and asked for a trade you think he would receive more negative media coverage than Palmer?

Apparently the double-standard extends to the head coach Marvin Lewis as well.  When asked about Ochocinco’s recent rendezvous, Lewis stated, “What has he ever done that he’s completed? What circle has he connected in any way?”

I have no issue with the latter, but why hasn’t Lewis ridiculed Palmer in public for his erratic play but is quick to pull the trigger on Ochocinco?

I don’t agree with some of Ochocinco’s antics but this time I totally understand his viewpoint.  Years ago when Ochocinco wanted out of Cincinnati the media feasted on the coverage.  Now that Palmer has issued the same proclamation this story continues to go unnoticed.

Perhaps if the media was more diverse there would be more balanced coverage.
