Lies, Damned Lies, and Rupert Murdoch

Lies, Damned Lies, and Rupert Murdoch
Rep. Alan GraysonU.S. Congressman from Florida's 8th District
Posted: July 17, 2010 03:44 PM

Well, we did it! We got an independent audit of the Federal Reserve ready for the President's signature. That's what the Senate's vote to approve the financial reform bill means; the audit authority is in there. Now we will find out which zombie banks on Wall Street got a new lease on life with Fed money, as the Fed's balance sheet grew by over one trillion dollars.

Funny enough, the world of big money isn't collapsing -- as the Fed threatened it would if an audit of the Fed ever came close to passing.

But if you happened to read Rupert Murdoch's Wall Street Journal on May 7, 2010, you would have heard a different story. "Plan for Congressional Audits of Fed Dies in Senate," was the headline. Exactly what Wall Street wanted you to think.

Whoops! It looks like the Wall Street Journal has gone the way of Rupert Murdoch's flagship holding, Fox News.

But we won. And so, to celebrate, we took that Wall Street Journal article from two months ago, did a little photoshopping, and put this together:



We did this. Together. At every moment, as the Fed and Wall Street sought to undermine this cause, it was the phone calls, letters, e-mails, blogging and sheer power of the people -- ordinary people who cared -- that beat them back. We have delivered a succinct message to Wall Street and the Fed: "We Can Beat You."

We will beat you. As often as we need to. And when the battle is over, as Lincoln said, there will be "a new birth of freedom, and government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

Some infos on the role of the Federal Reserve and the audit vote:

The Federal Reserve is the chief culprit behind the economic crisis. Its unchecked power to create endless amounts of money out of thin air brought us the boom and bust cycle and causes one financial bubble after another. Since the Fed’s creation in 1913 the dollar has lost more than 96% of its value, and by recklessly inflating the money supply the Fed continues to distort interest rates and intentionally erodes the value of the dollar.

For the past 30 years, Congressman Ron Paul has worked tirelessly to bring much-needed transparency and accountability to the secretive bank. And in 2009 his unfaltering dedication showed astonishing results: HR 1207, the bill to audit the Federal Reserve, swept the country and made the central bankers shudder at their desks. The bill passed as an amendment both in the House Financial Services Committee and in the House itself.

But the usurpers of America’s future didn’t take it lying down. They weren’t about to allow their secrets to be exposed and their magic money machine to be put under close scrutiny. They worked frantically behind the scenes to quietly derail all efforts to open up the Federal Reserve to an independent audit.

A handful of Fed-loving U.S. senators led by Chris Dodd rewrote the Senate version of the Financial Reform Bill to strip out Ron Paul’s Audit the Fed amendment and actually expand the Fed’s power over banks, lending and money. As Alan Grayson pointed out here, and Ron Paul commented on here, the Dodd bill completely eliminated legislation to audit the Federal Reserve, which already passed in the House.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) introduced an amendment on the floor effectively adding the Grayson-Paul language to the Senate bill, but later changed his amendment under pressure by the Federal Reserve and the Obama administration. The altered Sanders amendment passed the Senate on May 11, 2010 by a unanimous 96-0 vote.

Sen. Vitter reintroduced an amendment with the original Audit the Fed language. The Senate rejected the amendment on May 11, 2010 by a 37-62 vote.

The House and Senate went to the conference committee which attempted to reconcile the differences between the two bills (and their amendments). Unfortunately, Ron Paul’s tough language ended up not being included in the final bill.

On June 30, 2010, the GOP introduced Ron Paul’s Audit the Fed bill as a motion to recommit, which was the last chance to alter the financial regulation bill. Audit the Fed failed by a vote of 229-198. All Republicans voted in favor of the measure with 23 Democrats crossing the aisle to vote with Republicans. 114 co-sponsors of HR 1207, all Democrats, jumped ship and voted against Audit the Fed.

The GOP had offered the Fed audit as the minority’s last chance to alter the financial regulation bill. The bill does have an watered-down audit provision in the conference report, but it is limited to loans made by the Fed during the height of the economic crisis. Ron Paul’s bill would have allowed a total examination of the Fed’s books.

How they voted [...]

THE END? Not yet! Audit the Fed will be back in 2011.

even though it is a satire, these two guys are really getting to the bottom of who is going to "pay" for all of the crisis mess.

When I saw the name Robert Murdock, I seriously thought it was going to be about this major story I read in today's newspaper at work.  And it immediately made me think of how a major apology is needed for the way Michael was wronged by the media, and totally defamed. They should be paying out 100's of millions to MJ for damages.

 Apology: Rupert Murdoch leaves the hotel after meeting with the family of Milly Dowler. Their lawyer later revealed he had apologised for the conduct of reporters
Former News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks was given a seven-figure severance package after resigning, it has emerged.
Senior colleagues have estimated the pay off, handed out five days after the final edition of the News of the World she used to edit, to be around £3.5million.
The final editor of the paper, Colin Myler, is believed to be in line for a £2million pay-off and two of the company's senior lawyers - Jon Chapman and Tom Crone - will both get around £1.5million, the Independent reported.
Les Hinton, chief executive of Dow Jones which publishes the Wall Street Journal, also resigned last night and is likely to receive a hefty sum.
The financial settlements will include gagging orders to stop executives discussing company matters outside of any public inquiries or criminal proceedings.

It comes as a humbled Rupert Murdoch said he had let his late father down last night as he issued a face-to-face apology to the family of murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler over the phone hacking scandal. He said he was ‘appalled’ to learn that his media empire had apparently tapped into Milly’s voicemails, suggesting it had failed to live up to the standards set by legendary war reporter and newspaper proprietor Sir Keith Murdoch.


The Dowlers’ lawyer Mark Lewis said  80-year-old Mr Murdoch had appeared ‘humbled, shaken and sincere’.
‘This was something that had hit him on a personal level. He apologised many times and held his head in his hands,’ Mr Lewis said. ‘He said this was not the standard set by his father.’ The astonishing scenes came as Mr Murdoch, one of the world’s most powerful businessmen, went into reverse gear over the controversy that has paralysed politics, the media and the police.
 
Full-scale apology: The text of Rupert Murdoch's advertisement which appears as a full page advert in today's national newspapers


 Listening: The family of Milly Dowler, from left to right her mother Sally, sister Gemma and father Bob listen to their solicitor after the meeting
  Resigned: Rebekah Brooks, chief executive of  News International in London, and Les Hinton, chief executive of Dow Jones & Co in New York, have both resigned in the wake of the phone hacking scandal

With the scandal increasingly threatening the tycoon’s global interests:
News International’s chief executive Rebekah Brooks finally quit after Mr Murdoch’s daughter Elisabeth allegedly blamed her for having ‘f*****’ the family firm.
In a statement unprecedented in recent corporate history, the tycoon today apologises for ‘serious wrongdoing’.
Pressure grew on his son James Murdoch, chairman of News Corporation, over ‘hush money’ payments he approved to phone hacking victims.
One of Mr Murdoch’s most trusted lieutenants, Les Hinton, resigned as chief executive of Dow Jones, which publishes the Wall Street Journal and is owned by News Corp.
David Cameron faced fresh questions over his judgement as it emerged he hosted ex-News of the World editor Andy Coulson at Chequers after he resigned as Downing Street’s media chief.
 Rupert Murdoch today met the family of murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler in a London hotel as he stepped up his efforts to stem the damage caused by the phone-hacking scandal
Yesterday saw the downfall of Mrs Brooks, the most powerful woman in British newspapers, apparently after Elisabeth Murdoch, a fellow member of the so-called ‘Chipping Norton set’ with PR man husband Matthew Freud, turned on her.
Mr Murdoch had spent days fighting to save the flame-haired 43-year-old, who was editor of the News of the World when Milly Dowler’s phone is alleged to have been hacked.
He even closed the Sunday tabloid, Britain’s biggest-selling newspaper, rather than  letting go of the woman he is said to have regarded as ‘another daughter’.
Elisabeth Murdoch is also said to be deeply dismayed by her brother James’s handling of the scandal, according to News International sources.
Just yesterday morning, Mr Murdoch was striking a belligerent tone, insisting his newspapers and firms had made only ‘minor mistakes’ in their handling of allegations of phone hacking and police bribery.
But then, in a volte face most observers had long thought inevitable, he agreed to accept Mrs Brooks’s resignation amid signs that his international interests, not just those in Britain, were being damaged.
And today, the mogul strikes a dramatically different tone in an unprecedented public apology published in several British newspapers, including the Daily Mail. The now-defunct News of the World, he says, was in the business of holding others to account but had ‘failed when it came to itself’. ‘We are sorry for the serious wrongdoing that occurred,’ he adds.

‘We are deeply sorry for the hurt suffered by the individuals affected. We regret not acting faster to sort things out. I realise that simply apologising is not enough.’
Mr Murdoch promises to resolve the crisis and ‘make amends for the damage’ – a hint that he may be considering large donations to charity.
Announcing her departure, Mrs Brooks said: ‘My desire to remain on the bridge has made me a focal point of the debate.

interesting indeed, maybe he just knew he was being spied on, and this is why he said he was going to "die" in 6 months?

If the great empires of humanity have fallen ... has to fall on this man, I do not believe in repentance from Murdoch Rupet
 And this other news

He resigned the "number two" of the London Metropolitan Police
EFE - 1 hour 12 minutes ago

London, 18 jul (EFE).-the Superintendent, Chief of the Metropolitan Police of London (EMT), John Yates, today resigned over the case of the illegal interception of the "News of the World", a day after made it his boss, Paul Stephenson.
Yates was in charge of the first police in the case of the wiretaps of the tabloid research, begun in 2006, but in 2009 it was closed and that it was not necessary to reopen the investigation.
The position of Yates was virtually untenable after yesterday resign by surprise the Chief Commissioner of Scotland Yard Stephenson for his relationship with Neil Wallis, an exsubdirector of the "News of the World" arrested last week for his alleged involvement in the wiretaps of the tabloid.
Yates, who until last minute refused to resign, was who oversaw the hiring of Wallis as a consultant for the London Metropolitan Police, post which he held until September 2010, when had already broken the eavesdropping scandal.
Shortly before the Superintendent indicated journalists had no intention of resigning, because he had done nothing wrong, but apparently, I was going to be suspended by the disciplinary Commission of the police, gathered today for his case.
With the resignation of Yates, who has been accepted, Scotland Yard must be renewed to its two main leaders only a year of holding the Olympics in London 2012, which poses a special challenge the security of a city of eight million inhabitants.
The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said that the resignation of yachts is "unfortunate" but that is the "right decision", the same words used to refer to the resignation of Paul Stepehnson.
Both Stephenson and yachts are planning to testify tomorrow before the Committee on the Interior of the House of Commons on the case of the interception of the "News of the World", a ball of snow that has already caused four resignations since last Friday.
The police is being very down in the crisis because, in addition to closing the investigation of illegal eavesdropping, several officers accepted bribes of the tabloid for information for years.

For John Yates these things were not important ... :?

News of the World phone-hacking whistleblower found dead

Death of Sean Hoare – who was first named journalist to allege Andy Coulson knew of hacking – not being treated as suspicious

Sean Hoare, the former News of the World showbiz reporter who was the first named journalist to allege Andy Coulson was aware of phone hacking by his staff, has been found dead, the Guardian has learned.

Hoare, who worked on the Sun and the News of the World with Coulson before being dismissed for drink and drugs problems, is said to have been found dead at his Watford home.

Hertfordshire police would not confirm his identity, but the force said in a statement: "At 10.40am today [Monday 18 July] police were called to Langley Road, Watford, following the concerns for the welfare of a man who lives at an address on the street. Upon police and ambulance arrival at a property, the body of a man was found. The man was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after.

"The death is currently being treated as unexplained, but not thought to be suspicious. Police investigations into this incident are ongoing."

Hoare first made his claims in a New York Times investigation into the phone-hacking allegations at the News of the World.

He told the newspaper that not only did Coulson know of the phone hacking, but that he actively encouraged his staff to intercept the phone calls of celebrities in the pursuit of exclusives.

In a subsequent interview with the BBC he alleged that he was personally asked by his then-editor, Coulson, to tap into phones. In an interview with the PM programme he said Coulson's insistence that he didn't know about the practice was "a lie, it is simply a lie".

At the time a Downing Street spokeswoman said Coulson totally and utterly denied the allegations and said he had "never condoned the use of phone hacking and nor do I have any recollection of incidences where phone hacking took place".

Sean Hoare, a one-time close friend of Coulson's, told the New York Times the two men first worked together at the Sun, where, Hoare said, he played tape recordings of hacked messages for Coulson. At the News of the World, Hoare said he continued to inform Coulson of his activities. Coulson "actively encouraged me to do it", Hoare said.

In September last year, he was interviewed under caution by police over his claims that the former Tory communications chief asked him to hack into phones when he was editor of the paper, but declined to make any comment.

Hoare returned to the spotlight last week, after he told the New York Times that reporters at the News of the World were able to use police technology to locate people using their mobile phone signals in exchange for payments to police officers.

He said journalists were able to use a technique called "pinging" which measured the distance between mobile handsets and a number of phone masts to pinpoint its location.

Hoare gave further details about the use of "pinging" to the Guardian last week. He described how reporters would ask a news desk executive to obtain the location of a target: "Within 15 to 30 minutes someone on the news desk would come back and say 'right that's where they are.'"

He said: "You'd just go to the news desk and they'd just come back to you. You don't ask any questions. You'd consider it a job done. The chain of command is one of absolute discipline and that's why I never bought into it, like with Andy saying he wasn't aware of it and all that. That's bollocks."

He said he would stand by everything he had told the New York Times about "pinging". "I don't know how often it happened. That would be wrong of me. But if I had access as a humble reporter … "

He admitted he had had problems with drink and drugs and had been in rehab. "But that's irrelevant," he said. "There's more to come. This is not going to go away."

Hoare named a private investigator who he said had links with the News of the World, adding: "He may want to talk now because I think what you'll find now is a lot of people are going to want to cover their arse."

Speaking to another Guardian journalist last week, Hoare repeatedly expressed the hope that the hacking scandal would lead to journalism in general being cleaned up and said he had decided to blow the whistle on the activities of some of his former News of the World colleagues with that aim in mind.

He also said he had been injured the previous weekend while taking down a marquee erected for a children's party. He said he had broken his nose and badly injured his foot when a relative accidentally struck him with a heavy pole from the marquee.

Hoare also emphasised that he was not making any money from telling his story. Hoare, who has been treated for drug and alcohol problems, reminisced about partying with former pop stars and said he missed the days when he was able to go out on the town.

This looks like the begining of the end of those tabloids. The law regarding how media talks about people should also change for the better.

I wonder about June 25th 2009. Are we sure that TMZ were the ones breaking the news? If News of the world did, then it could be a proof that they were spying on Michael.

I wonder who´s next to fall. It´s going to be like a domino effect.

I’d be willing to bet that before this is over it is going to become quite clear and a big issue that this man is very much responsible for all the smut that was reported on Michael Jackson because obviously all these companies under this umbrella stuck together on the storiess that stood to earn them the most money, no matter what it took to sell it.   Why Michael?  Because he saw Michael Jackson as an object of disgust due to his own puritan beliefs and felt that Michael deserved to be scorned and no one would care.  Michael apparently didn’t fit into his ideal of someone who was worthy of what he had amassed and he was doing all he could to discredit him and to make others see it that way.  My question is what if any ethics govern this kind of smut tactic?  Do you think this is a big deal in vindicating and clearing Michael’s name?  I do and it feels like Michael played some role in bringing this scum front and center.

LulzSec hacks Murdoch news sites







By Suzanne Choney

LulzSec, the group of hackers that said three weeks ago it was disbanding, claimed credit Monday for tampering with Rupert Murdoch's Sun newspaper website, while an allied group, Anonymous, claimed credit for a denial-of-service attack that brought down the website of The TImes, another Murdoch paper.

"Tango down," Anonymous said on its Twitter page about The Times, adding: "To be honest, not quite sure why. Consulting lulzcats say it may be a domino effect like in the Arab world."

Late Monday, those who went to the Sun's site were redirected to a page with a fake story saying Murdoch's body had been found in his garden. Then they were redirected to LulzSec's Twitter page, where the group proclaimed:

"We have joy, we have fun, we have messed up Murdoch's Sun," the group said.

Murdoch is scheduled to appear before a parliamentary committee Tuesday to answer lawmakers' questions over phone hacking at News International, his British newspaper division. The scandal resulted in the closure of "News of the World" a little more than a week ago, and in the arrests of several individuals connected with the company, as well as a key police official.

Most thought LulzSec was gone from the scene when it said last month it was stepping back to work with larger hacking group Anonymous in efforts to hack government and corporate websites the group deems corrupt.

But in an eerie Twitter posting July 13, LulzSec indicated it was far from done. "The LulzBoat is on holiday across mysterious shores, but we have a lovely surprise for you in the future," the group said.

Lulz — which is Internet speak for "laughs" and "Sec" — short for "security" — made its name known in May, starting with defacing the website of the Public Broadcasting System. LulzSec posted a phony story on the site claiming that dead rapper Tupac Shakur was actually alive in New Zealand.

That hack followed PBS' airing of a "Frontline" documentary considered by LulzSec and Anonymous as being critical of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

Anonymous gained notoriety for its denial-of-service attacks on Visa and MasterCard late last year. Those attacks were retribution, Anonymous said, because the companies halted online donations during the WikiLeaks controversy, blocking contributions to Bradley Manning, the accused document leaker now in custody.

— The Associated Press contributed to this report.

This is really getting out of hand....some famous Australian celebreties have come forward and are going to sue Rupert Murdoch for hacking into the emails and phones.....

The other connection is to Elvis Presley.....yeh thats right.  Piece by piece by piece...

NASHVILLE SKYLINE: Will Elvis Presley See Revenge Against Media Mogul Rupert Murdoch?
The Australian Press Baron's Hatchet Job on Elvis May Have Helped Kill the King
July 14, 2011
; Written by Chet Flippo


NASHVILLE SKYLINE is a column by CMT/CMT.com Editorial Director Chet Flippo.)

In case you have missed it, there is a very messy and convoluted media scandal underway in the United Kingdom involving Australian media mogul Rupert Murdoch. What it essentially boils down to is this: Murdoch's News of the World tabloid -- which has been the best-selling tabloid paper in the English-speaking world -- has hired detectives over the years to hack into the cell phones of thousands of politicians, celebrities and other prominent people.

That practice turned deadly toxic with the newspaper turning to hacking into the cell phones of ordinary citizens, including a missing 13-year-old girl (who was murdered), the families of London train bombings terrorism victims and families of slain soldiers in Iraq.

The scandal has forced Murdoch to shut down the News of the World. It has also dragged British prime minister David Cameron, his government and the London police into the morass. It developed that the News of the World was bribing members of the police. The scandal could bring down the government. There is widespread speculation in the UK that this could break up Murdoch's empire there, which includes the London Times, the Sunday Times, the Sun and a 39 percent interest in pay TV conglomerate BSkyB, which Murdoch had been attempting to buy outright until this hacking scandal finally forced him to back away. His holdings in the U.S. include the New York Post, the Fox Network, Fox News on cable TV and the Wall Street Journal. You will recall that Murdoch is also the man who paid $580 million for MySpace in 2005. He sold MySpace a few weeks ago in June for $30 million.

I first became aware of Murdoch and his creeping media tentacles in the early 1970s when I lived in Austin and regularly read the newspapers from Texas' leading and more influential -- or most interesting -- newspapers. They included the San Antonio News and the San Antonio Express, which were suddenly acquired by the Australian press impresario Rupert Murdoch in 1973 as his launching pad into American journalism.

There's more to read here, if you can be bothered.......

Re: Lies, Damned Lies, and Rupert Murdoch

Well there is more....as we all know, this will be a domino effect...I found this article.

9/11: WHAT DID RUPERT MURDOCH KNOW?

Date: Friday, 3-Oct-2003 12:59:06 Christopher Bollyn is an investigative journalist who has written extensively on the events of September 11, 2001 in the Washington-based American Free Press. He has researched different aspects of the 9/11 attacks and uncovered facts and evidence that challenge the official version of events.

Two organizations, both pro-Israel, the Anti Defamation League (ADL) and the Fox News network, have desperately tried to smear Bollyn as an “anti-Semite” in order to discredit him and diminish the significance of his work. At the helm of both organizations, the ADL and Fox News, is an Australian-born Zionist named Keith Rupert Murdoch.

Murdoch and the ADL are clearly trying to marginalize Bollyn, and other independent researchers like him, who use facts to challenge the government’s flawed explanation of what occurred on 9/11.

The question is why?

DID RUPERT MURDOCH
HAVE PRIOR KNOWLEDGE OF 9/11?

More than a year before 9/11, media mogul Rupert Murdoch produced a television program that depicted a passenger aircraft being hijacked by remote control and flown into the World Trade Center. A chief of the international Zionist network, Murdoch has close and long-standing relations with the individuals who gained control of the twin towers shortly before they were destroyed. One question has to be asked:

Did Rupert Murdoch have prior knowledge of 9/11?


By Christopher Bollyn
American Free Press

Rupert Murdoch is said to be television’s “most powerful man in the world with the capacity to reach more than 110 million viewers across four continents.” Murdoch sits at the helm of News Corp., the parent company of Fox News network, and controls a large part of the mass media in the United States, including The New York Post and the Fox cinema and television network.

Murdoch’s international media network owns more than 175 newspapers and magazines on three continents, publishes 40 million papers a week and dominates the newspaper markets in Britain, Australia and New Zealand.

A “close friend” of the accused Israeli war criminal and prime minister Ariel Sharon, Murdoch and his media network are well known for supporting Israel’s right-wing Likud Party and the Anglo-American “war on terrorism.”

Less well known, however, is the fact that Murdoch produced a television program in 2000, which predicted with uncanny accuracy the attacks of 9/11.

Murdoch also has long-standing relationships with the key individuals who gained possession of the World Trade Center shortly before 9/11 – and who profited from its destruction.

In 2000, Murdoch produced a television program about a terror attack on the World Trade Center, which predicted precisely the kind of attack that occurred on 9/11. He is also closely connected to the two individuals who leased, and then insured the WTC property – and their future earnings – against precisely such an attack.

These connections and circumstances suggest that Murdoch had a considerable degree of prior knowledge of the attacks on the World Trade Center.

Repeated calls to Murdoch’s office by American Free Press to inquire about what he may have known or suspected about the possibility of such an attack were not returned.

THE LONE GUNMAN

On March 4, 2001, Fox TV, a branch of Murdoch’s media empire, broadcast the pilot episode of a “spin-off” series based on characters from the popular Fox program “X-Files”. The short-lived series was called “The Lone Gunman.”

A Murdoch-owned company called Canadian Millennium Productions, Ltd. (News Corp. owns 83 percent), produced the pilot episode for “The Lone Gunman” in Vancouver, Canada, and New York City from March 20 to April 7, 2000.

The title “The Lone Gunman” refers to a Washington-based government watchdog news weekly, not unlike the court-killed SPOTLIGHT and the American Free Press. The show’s main characters are the investigative reporters who produce the paper.

The pilot episode of “The Lone Gunman” depicted the hijacking of a passenger aircraft by a hostile computer hacker who takes control of the plane computer flight system and directs it to fly into one of the towers of the World Trade Center.

The climactic sequence shows the plane heading straight for one of the twin towers, but thanks to the efforts of the crew of “The Lone Gunman” and the powerful “Octium” computer chip, the pilots are able to regain control of the plane at the last second and avoid the building by inches.

The pilots do not swerve away from the tower but pull the plane up in a steep climb. In a memorable scene full of suspense the plane narrowly missed the tower.

The background footage for the plane’s approach to the WTC was actually filmed during the spring of 2000 by a special aerial crew that used a helicopter flying low over Manhattan on a night flight toward the twin towers.

Despite the uncanny similarities between the Murdoch-produced film and the horrific reality of 9/11, rather than being discussed in the media as a prescient warning of the possibility of such an attack, the pilot episode of “The Lone Gunman” series seemed to have been quietly forgotten.

While an estimated 13.2 million Fox TV viewers are reported to have watched the pilot episode of “The Lone Gunman”, broadcast on March 4, 2001, when life imitated art just six months later on 9/11, no one in the media seemed to recall the program.

NO ONE NOTICED

“I woke up on September 11 and saw it on TV and the first thing I thought of was The Lone Gunmen,” Frank Spotnitz, one of the program’s four executive producers said. “But then in the weeks and months that followed, almost no one noticed the connection.”

Frank Spotnitz, John Shiban, Vince Gilligan, and Chris Carter are listed as executive producers of the program. Shiban is also listed as a writer and creator of the pilot episode.

“What’s disturbing about it to me is, you think as a fiction writer that if you can imagine this scenario, then the people in power in the government who are there to imagine disaster scenarios can imagine it, too,” Spotnitz said.

Robert McLachlan, director of photography, received an award from the Canadian Society of Cinematographers on March 31, 2001 for his camera work on the pilot episode.

“It was odd that nobody referenced it,” McLachlan told American Free Press about the uncanny similarities between “The Lone Gunman” pilot episode he filmed and the horrific reality of 9/11. “You’re the first person who mentioned it,” he said. “In the ensuing press nobody mentioned that [9/11] echoed something that had been seen before.”

AFP asked McLachlan about who supervised the production of the pilot program. “John Shiban was primarily the creator,” McLachlan said, adding, “Chris Carter was not there.” Carter is well known for his production of the “X-Files.”

“It’s their baby,” Carter said earlier about “The Lone Gunmen.” Carter reportedly had “a minor part” in the production. Neither Carter nor Shiban could be reached for comment.

MURDOCH’S JEWISH ROOTS

Murdoch “became an American citizen for business reasons,” according to Richard H. Curtiss, editor of the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs. Keith Rupert was born in Melbourne, Australia, on March 11, 1931. “Rupert’s father, Sir Keith Murdoch, was a newspaper publisher, and his mother an Orthodox Jew,” Curtiss wrote, “although Murdoch never offers that information in his biographies.”

Murdoch’s father married Elisabeth Joy Greene, daughter of Rupert Greene in 1928. They had one son, Keith Rupert and three daughters. Later in life, Keith Rupert chose to use Rupert, the first name of his Jewish maternal grandfather.

The young Keith Rupert was educated at Australia’s fashionable Geelong private school, and went on to the elitist and aristocratic Oxford University in England, according to Candour (UK) magazine.

“Rupert’s father Sir Keith Murdoch attained his prominent position in Australian society through a fortuitous marriage to the daughter of a wealthy Jewish family, née Elisabeth Joy Greene. Through his wife’s connections, Keith Murdoch was subsequently promoted from reporter to chairman of the British-owned newspaper where he worked. There was enough money to buy himself a knighthood of the British realm, two newspapers in Adelaide, South Australia, and a radio station in a faraway mining town,” Candour wrote in 1984. “For some reason, Murdoch has always tried to hide the fact that his pious mother brought him up as a Jew.”

While Murdoch may have “tried to hide” his Jewish roots, he has been quite forthright about his support for extreme right-wing Zionists, such as Benjamin Netanyahu and Ariel Sharon.

Netanyahu, who wrote a book entitled The War on Terror: How the West Can Win in 1986, is a frequent commentator on Murdoch’s Fox News.

Murdoch’s support for Zionism extremists is well known and a matter of record. As New York Governor George Pataki said, “There is no newspaper in the U.S. more supportive of Israel than the [Murdoch’s] New York Post.”

[dropshadow=blue:3skjpjo7]It is through a network of Zionist organizations, in which Murdoch plays a central role, that Murdoch is connected to the individuals who arranged the privatization – and obtained control of the World Trade Center – shortly before its destruction.

These key individuals are: Larry Silverstein and the former Israeli commando Frank Lowy, the lease holders of dubious repute who gained control of the WTC property six weeks before 9/11, and Port Authority Chairman Lewis M. Eisenberg, who authorised the transfer of the leases.

Murdoch belongs to, and has been honored by, a number of leading Zionist organizations in which Silverstein, Lowy, and Eisenberg all hold senior positions. These organizations include the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), the United Jewish Appeal (UJA), and the New York-based Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust.

Fifty days before 9/11, Silverstein Properties and Lowy’s Westfield America secured 99-year leases on the WTC. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey turned control of the World Trade Center over to the private hands of Silverstein and Lowy on July 24, 2001.

Silverstein and Lowy then took control of the 10.6 million-square-foot complex, which included the twin towers office buildings and two nine-story office buildings. Silvestein and the former Israeli commando Lowy then controlled all access to the World Trade Center.

Lowy leased the shopping concourse called the Mall at the World Trade Center, which comprised about 427,000 square feet of retail space.

“Six weeks before the WTC towers were destroyed, the Port Authority completed the process of leasing them for 99 years to Larry Silverstein, the developer who had built 7 World Trade Center [which mysteriously self-demolished at 5:25 p.m. on 9/11].

“Simultaneously, the retail space underneath the complex was leased to Westfield America, the US division of an Australian company that is one of the world’s largest operators of shopping malls.” Paul Goldberger wrote in New Yorker, May 20, 2002.

“Silverstein and Westfield were given the right to rebuild the structures if they were destroyed, and Westfield has the right to expand the retail space by 30 percent,” Goldberger wrote.

Silverstein is suing for some $7.2 billion in insurance money for the loss of the destroyed World Trade Center – and his expected earnings – for property he had leased with a down payment of $100 million – of borrowed funds[/dropshadow:3skjpjo7].

MURDOCH THE ZIONIST

“Murdoch is a close friend of Ariel Sharon,” Sam Kiley, The Times (UK) veteran journalist on the Middle East wrote about the man who took over the once famous British paper. Kiley said Murdoch’s friendship with the Israeli prime minister had caused senior staff at the paper to rewrite important copy.

“Murdoch’s executives were so afraid of irritating him that, when I pulled off a little scoop of tracking down and photographing the unit in the Israeli army which killed Mohammed al-Durrah, the 12-year-old boy whose death was captured on film and became the iconic image of the conflict, I was asked to file the piece ‘without mentioning the dead kid.’” Kiley wrote. “After that conversation, I was left wordless, so I quit.”

Sharon and Murdoch are old friends. On Oct. 15, 1982, a month after the massacres of thousands of Palestinian refugees in the Sabra and Shatila camps of Beirut, war crimes which occurred under Sharon’s direct command, the Israeli defense minister held meetings with Rupert Murdoch and others, reportedly in order to advance his “West Bank real estate grab.”

The visit with Sharon included a trip for Murdoch and his editors from New York and London that “took them on a bird’s-eye tour of Israel aboard a helicopter gunship, flying over the Golan Heights, West Bank and settlements.”

“I have always believed in the future of Israel and the goals of the international Jewish community,” Murdoch said at a spring fund-raiser for the Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust on April 29, 2001.

From the beginning, News Corp., his global media company, “has been supportive of the Jewish national cause,” Murdoch said.

Larry Silverstein, who had not yet acquired the lease on the World Trade Center, attended the fund-raiser with Murdoch and reportedly said about museum chairman Robert Morgenthau’s plans to expand the museum: “I’ll support you…as long as you keep it under 110 stories.”

MURDOCH & THE ADL

“Henry Kissinger, Rupert Murdoch and Mortimer Zuckerman are on the [ADL] dinner committee,” according to a recent New York Times report on the ADL’s recent fund-raiser in which the controversial Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi received the ADL’s Distinguished Statesman Award.

Silverstein and Eisenberg have both held senior leadership positions with the United Jewish Appeal (UJA), a billion dollar Zionist “charity” organization, to which Murdoch and Lowy generously contribute. In 1997, Henry Kissinger presented Murdoch with the UJA’s award for “Humanitarian of the Year.”

Silverstein is a former chairman of UJA. This organization raises hundreds of millions of dollars every year for a network of Zionist agencies in the United States and Israel. Eisenberg, who was instrumental in obtaining the lease for Silverstein, is on the Planning Board of UJA.

Eisenberg in his role with the Port Authority was the key person who negotiated the 99-year leases for Silverstein and Frank Lowy’s Westfield America, who were in fact the low-bidders for the lease on the 110-story towers and the retail mall.

Murdoch and the Czechoslovakian-born Israeli commando Frank Lowy, a former fighter in Israel’s Golani Brigade, who emigrated to Australia in the 1950s, have had a long friendship, which Murdoch recounted during an American Australian Association fund-raising dinner in honor of Frank’s son, Peter S. Lowy, in New York on November 20, 2002. Larry Silverstein and his wife also attended the American Australian event.

Some reporters refer to the American Australian Association, whose membership includes James Wolfensohn, the president of the World Bank, who raised cash for Rupert Murdoch when he first expanded into the United States, as “the kangaroo mafia.”

“Frank was a brave and determined fighter,” Rafi Kocer, Lowy’s former commander, said. Lowy has donated some $350,000 to build a memorial museum in Israel for his former brigade.

Today, Lowy and his three sons control Westfield Corporation, one of the largest operators of shopping centers in the United States – and the world.

INSURED AGAINST TERRORIST ATTACKS

On September 12, 2001, The Jerusalem Post reported: “Frank Lowy, who emigrated to Australia from Israel in 1952, owns the 99-year lease for the 425,000 square foot retail portion of the destroyed World Trade Center…Westfield said today that it has insurance cover against terrorist attacks and its earnings will not be materially affected.”

Lowy, is described by the Sydney Morning Herald as “a self-made man with a strong interest in the Holocaust and Israeli politics.”

Murdoch is going down. His time has come and he must be accountable for everything he's done.

I know The Enquirer are the ones who announced MJ's death in 6 months. Are they a part of RM's media group?

I’d be willing to bet that before this is over it is going to become quite clear and a big issue that this man is very much responsible for all the smut that was reported on Michael Jackson because obviously all these companies under this umbrella stuck together on the storiess that stood to earn them the most money, no matter what it took to sell it.   Why Michael?  Because he saw Michael Jackson as an object of disgust due to his own puritan beliefs and felt that Michael deserved to be scorned and no one would care.  Michael apparently didn’t fit into his ideal of someone who was worthy of what he had amassed and he was doing all he could to discredit him and to make others see it that way.  My question is what if any ethics govern this kind of smut tactic?  Do you think this is a big deal in vindicating and clearing Michael’s name?  I do and it feels like Michael played some role in bringing this scum front and center.

I agree with everything you wrote in regards to how Murdoch viewed Mike...but I think it goes wayyy beyond that.  There's many people who believe in a lot of what Mike did...so they should equally be as attacked, by Murdoch's machine, as Mike was, right?  But they weren't...MJ was one of, if not THE, prime target.  And the reason for that is because no one else was as much of a threat to Murdoch... his empire, his rule, and his 'philosophy'...as Michael was.

Of course, Murdoch's evilness extends far beyond MJ, and hopefully all 'truths' surrounding this spawn will see the light of day.  What goes around sometimes truly does come back around.  And although Mudoch won some rounds over the years, in regards to tainting an innocent man's reputation...the fight is not over....and it looks like Murdoch is slowly going down for the count.

With L.O.V.E. always.

The beauty of Michael Jackson is found in his heart and soul...his enormous talent is a bonus and what a bonus it is.
