The Gladiator: John Fitzgerald Kennedy


Comment: This is the second in a series of 12 articles written in 2006 commemorating (at the time) the 43rd anniversary of the assassination of JFK. This year, 2013, is the 50th anniversary of what can, in hindsight and in Truth, be called the Day America Died.

Anyone who has taken the time to study the facts about that fateful day in Dallas, TX, will already know that JFK was deliberately murdered by a cabal of psychopathic warmongers who were opposed to his plans for a more peaceful world. That same cabal is still in power today, and it has extended its reach across the globe.

We will be featuring one article per day between now and the anniversary.

You can find the rest of the JFK series on the right hand bar of Sott.net. You can also purchase a Kindle of the whole series on Amazon.

If you do nothing else, just take the time to watch the Sott.net/QFG produced version of 'Evidence of Revision', a three disc set that presents archive footage that will leave you in no doubt who killed JFK and why.


The Gladiator: John Fitzgerald Kennedy



Gaius Gracchus Flees From The Wealthy Elite


In my previous post, I included a chapter from Farewell America which gave a broad overview of the "American Psyche." It is crucial to understand the forces at play here in order to understand why John Kennedy was murdered, and why, when he died, the death knell of the American Republic - as well as its people - began sounding.

As I have written before, most Americans are woefully ignorant of their true history, and by design.

$1 million worth of bitcoins stolen from Australian online bank

An Australian bitcoin bank holding over US$1 million of the crypto-currency has been hacked, leaving an unknown number of users with nothing - one of the largest thefts in the currency's four-year history.

The incident took place on October 26, when the bank was hacked, with 4,100 bitcoins valued at $1.3 million stolen, the service's operator only known as 'Tradefortress' said. He refused to give his name to the press, also stressing he was not much older than 18.

It took the bank's owner two weeks to notify the affected customers.

Bitcoin is a decentralized, crypto-currency, free from any government or central bank control. Currency is sold and bought at online exchanges, and those transactions can be virtually anonymous.

One bitcoin is currently worth more than $300 on Mt. Gox, the world's largest bitcoin exchange - up from around $50 in March. There are 11,925,700 million bitcoins in circulation.

The Sydney man offered the service called Inputs.io, which he claimed was "one of the most secure web wallets on the market." Customers were charged a small fee to keep their bitcoins there.

The site used two-factor authentication and location-based email confirmation, and said the page was started to avert "the hack of bitcoins even if the web server was compromised."

Some of the hacked money is to be refunded, the operator told Fairfax Media. Tradefortress said he would use 1,000 of his own bitcoins, as well as the money the hackers didn't steal.

Colorado woman who championed Obamacare loses insurance plan

CBS4′s Shaun Boyd talks with Kathy Wagner
President Barack Obama is apologizing to Americans who are losing their current health insurance plans. Millions of people are getting cancellation notices, including about 250,000 Coloradans.

For years the president said that those who like their current plan would be able to keep it, but it turns out that's not the case.

In order to comply with the Affordable Care Act insurance companies have had to cancel millions of policies, forcing people to find new, and in many cases, more expensive coverage on the exchange.

The Colorado Division of Insurance says 250,000 people in Colorado alone have lost their policies in the last few months.

Cathy Wagner says she isn't political and has never written a lawmaker, much less the president, but with Obamacare she felt compelled.

"I really just wanted him to know ... I was so hopeful that this plan was going to move us forward, but in fact I think it's moving us backward," Wagner said.

Philadelphia Police are searching for two suspects wanted in connection with a violent home invasion Friday night in the city's Oxford Circle section.

The incident was reported at the 1500 block of Rosalie Street.

Police tell Eyewitness News a 28-year-old woman was tortured in front of her two-year-old daughter and her four-year-old nephew.

Police say a pair of men broke into the back door of this home on Rosalie Street, attacking the people inside including the 28-year-old woman, her two-year-old daughter and four-year-old nephew, her 54-year-old mother and an electrician working at the house.

"These two individuals tied up all the three adults. They tied up their wrists and their ankles," Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said.

Homeland Security grant gives Seattle police a network that can track all Wi-Fi enabled devices

The Seattle Police Department purchased a "mesh network" in February that will be used by emergency responders, but which will also be capable of tracking anyone with Wi-Fi enabled device.

The network is not yet turned on, according to Seattle Police, but once it is, it will be able to determine the IP address, device type, downloaded applications, current location, and historical location of any device that searches for a Wi-Fi signal. The network is capable of storing that information for the previous 1,000 times a particular device attempted to access a Wi-Fi signal.

Jamela Debelak, of the American Civil Liberties Union (ALCU), is worried that police will use the network for more than just coordinating emergency responders. "They now own a piece of equipment that has tracking capabilities so we think that they should be going to City Council and presenting a protocol for the whole network that says they won't be using it for surveillance purposes," she told KIRO 7.
"Once these kinds of tools are in place, they don't go away. Even if we assume that the mesh network was installed by good people for good reasons, there's no reason to believe that the people controlling the network in the future will use it for the public good."
Seattle City Councilmen Bruce Harrell assured KIRO 7 that the network would not be used for surveillance purposes. "While I understand that a lot of people have concerns about the government having access to this information," he said, "when we have large public gatherings like the situation in Boston and something bad happens, the first thing we want to know is how are we using technology to capture that information."

Victim Michelle Knight

With her chin held high against the inevitable tears, Michelle Knight on Tuesday described 11 years of captivity spent naked and chained in what came to be known as Cleveland's "house of horrors."

It was the first public interview given by any of the three women who were held captive by rapist Ariel Castro since their dramatic escape on May 6.

Knight was the first to be snatched off the street in 2002, when she was 20 years old.

In a paid interview with the "Dr. Phil" show, the diminutive woman described how Castro had been hoping for a younger victim.

The Miller’s home after the fire.
Police tased and arrested a desperate father as he tried to kick in the front door of his house to save his 3-year-old child from burning alive. As toddler was taken to the morgue, his father was taken to jail for trying to save him.

On the morning of November 1st, Ryan and Cathy Miller woke up in the middle of the night, overwhelmed with smoke. Their house was ablaze. They were forced out through back door, but their son, Riley, was still inside.

Step-father Ryan Miller circled the house to attempt to enter in through the front door, while Cathy placed a 9-1-1 call. The call was recorded at 12:58 a.m., and first-responders promptly arrived at the scene at 1:03 a.m.

As Ryan attempted to break through the locked front door, he was restrained by the very police officers that were called to help. Ryan was tased three times, then arrested. Ryan was forced to watch as the fire consumed the home.

By the time the fire department finally arrived on the scene the fire had become too hot for them to enter. The family was shocked by the actions of the officers.

Fifty-four arrested in largest act of civil disobedience in Walmart history


Surrounded by about 100 police officers in riot gear and a helicopter circling above, more than 50 Walmart workers and supporters were arrested in downtown Los Angeles Thursday night as they sat in the street protesting what they called the retailer's "poverty wages."

Organizers said it was the largest single act of civil disobedience in Walmart's 50-year history. The 54 arrestees, with about 500 protesting Walmart workers, clergy and supporters, demonstrated outside LA's Chinatown Walmart. Those who refused police orders to clear the street after their permit expired were arrested without incident. Those who fail to post $5,000 bail would be jailed overnight, Detective Gus Villanueva, a Los Angeles Police Department spokesman, told The Huffington Post.

Their primary demand to Walmart: pay every full-time worker at least $25,000 a year.

One of the protesting Walmart workers, Anthony Goytia, a 31-year-old father of two, said he believes he will make about $12,000 this year. It's a daily struggle, he said, "to make sure my family doesn't go hungry."

"The power went out at my house yesterday because I couldn't afford the bill," Goytia told HuffPost. "I had to run around and get two payday loans to pay for my rent from the first" of the month. "Yesterday we went to a food bank."

To make ends meet, Goytia said he sometimes participates in clinical trials and sells his blood plasma. He has been asking his managers for full-time employment for a year and a half. Instead, he said, they hire temporary workers, who can be fired at any time.

Goytia was one of several dozen Walmart workers in Southern California who went on strike Wednesday and Thursday, calling for an end to low wages, unpredictable part-time hours and retaliation for speaking out. They were joined by other employees on their days off and dozens more who rode buses from Northern California.

The Debris of History

Over the past few days I've been thinking a lot about John Kennedy and what our world might have been like if he had lived. These thoughts didn't just come out of the blue, they are the result of the fact that I have just finished reading one of the saddest books ever written: Farewell America by the pseudonymous author, James Hepburn.

Farewell America is pretty well accepted to have been authored by the French equivalent of our CIA, and based on hard intelligence gathered from French, Russian, and even American sources. It was originally published in French in 1968, but it was unavailable in the United States for many years. With the coming of the worldwide web, it became available and I truly wish that every American citizen would read it.

With remarkable skill and insight, the book outlines the overall situation in America at the time, and describes the players and most probable conspirators involved in the horrific and brutal public execution of probably the best president America ever had. There are many reasons to think that George H.W. Bush was involved in the plot, and today, having placed his idiot son on the throne, the world is as far away from that world we could be living in had Kennedy lived, that it is like we all died back then, and now we have awakened in Hell.

They weren't satisfied to just kill Jack Kennedy; they went for his brother as well. And when John-John grew up and began to display the same characteristics of his father: decency, intellect, and a sense of obligation to help others, he had to die also. The situation actually has all the makings of an immortal myth: the good and noble Prince snatched from his cradle and replaced with the psychopathic offspring of an ogre.

I don't know if it is only me noticing these things, but it seems all the GOOD heroes are dead; and we notice that they all had three things in common: an ability to move the masses by their simple presence, a feeling of unity with all people regardless of nationality, ethnicity, or social status; and the most important of all, the thing that meant they had to die: they were totally opposed to War. Is it too "conspiracy minded" to point this out? To wonder how the human race has had such inexplicable bad luck to have lost all it's decent, anti-War heroes?

Corrupt prosecutor faces 10 days in jail after sending innocent man to prison for 25 years

Ken Anderson
Williamson County, Texas - A corrupt former prosecutor will face a rare penalty for intentionally withholding evidence in a trial that sent an man to prison 25 years ago. For robbing an innocent man of decades of his life, the ex-D.A. will spend now have to spend 10 days in jail.

The case takes us back more than two decades. On the morning of August 13, 1986, the body of Christine Morton was found beaten to death with a wooden object in her bed. Her sheets were stained with blood and semen, and her credit card was missing. Her husband, Texas grocery store manager Michael Morton had not been home since 5:30 a.m., but was seized as the prime suspect. He had no arrests, convictions, or history of violence against anyone at that time. He was charged and put on trial for his wife's murder.

The prosecution, led by district attorney Ken Anderson, presented no physical evidence or witnesses that tied Michael Morton to the crime. They hypothesized that Morton had beaten his wife to death before going to work because she refused to have sex with him on his birthday. The prosecution claimed that Morton arranged the scene to look like a burglary, and that he masturbated on his wife's corpse.

These charges came while Anderson was sitting on evidence that could have redeemed Michael Morton. The Mortons' 3-year-old son, Eric, had been present during the murder. According to Eric, the murderer was not his daddy, but a "monster." Young Eric had described the crime scene and murder in great detail, and specifically told investigators that his "Daddy" was "not home" when it happened.

Additionally withheld was the fact that Mortons' neighbors told investigators that a man had repeatedly parked a green van on the street behind the crime scene and walked off into a nearby wooded area, days before the murder. Then there was the inconvenient fact (for the prosecution) that the victim's missing credit card had been used at a San Antonio jewelry store.

None of this evidence was released during the trial. On February 17, 1987, Michael Morton was convicted of murder and given a life sentence.
