That was an excellent show

That was an excellent show with Walter Hixson. I especially like his busting of the propaganda created myth that anti-war people were known to spit on returning soldiers. The same fascist people who brought us the Gulf of Tonkin false flag non-attack to kick off the Vietnam War, Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq to justify using them on Iraq, the phony glory stories of Pat Tillman and Jessica Lynch, the babies being thrown from incubators onto the cold hospital floors in Kuwait, the pivotal and powerful lies of 9/11, Sandy Hook School "no motive" Adam Lanza and the ubiquitous fundraising and political campaigns of the "survivor families", Boston Marathon "mass casualty drill" planned in 2008 by Richard Serino acted out in 2013 (See Dr. James Tracy of Project Censored at his memoryholeblog dot com for May 21, 2013 to read Serino's 2008 power point presentation on having a mass casualty event at the Marathon Finish Line), and the justifications for NSA total spying, Homeland Security police state, NDAA claims to the right to use the military to indefinitely imprison Americans without due process... So what's next?
