20th Century American History As Fable From Cradle To Grave

"The way the "Fourth Estate" functions with the Kennedy assassination has long been the fly in the ointment. It is a frustrating issue to examine. Where they should question, they accept without comment. Isn't one of the aims of journalism to research what the facts are? Research what you are told? After all, we are not living in Nazi state, right? In many ways the American press operates like a propaganda arm of the government. Joseph Goebbels never had it so good! One can view this behavior in the way they cover the official government investigations from JFK, to Watergate, to 9-11." - George Bailey, 'The Sum Of All Things,' April 3, 2011
George Bailey, publisher of the blog Oswald's Mother, says that the American press and the Nazi propaganda ministry operate almost exactly the same in regards to turning government falsehoods into official history, covering up government crimes and errors, and blocking any discussion about controversial historical events that have transformed history and justified government aggression like the Reichstag fire and 9/11.

If Joseph Goebbels was America's propaganda minister from 1945 up to now nothing in the mainstream corporate-state media would be reported differently to the American people. What Goebbels did for Totalitarian Germany, the CIA-Corporate-Mass Media has done for Totalitarian America.

Who needs Goebbels when you have Karl Rove, Fox News, CNN, and the New York Times? The CIA and the Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda are indistinguishable in their methods, and philosophy about truth, morality, power, and the voice of the people in world history. Under all empires, whether Nazi, Soviet, or American, the people are treated as slaves, the truth is twisted, and history is conceived by a small and organized class of managers and authoritarians to advance the interests of the empire at home and abroad.

The National Security Regime in America that was set up after World War II takes the same approach to history and truth as the Nazi Regime did when it reigned supreme and acted aggressively towards other nations, as well as the Soviet regime.

The formula to deceive the people into supporting false and evil wars and a powerful central government is simple. The goal is to rewrite history and call it the truth of time in the same breath. First, the imperial regime commits an act of terrorism or war and blames it on the people whose land is to be invaded and conquered, or persecuted and killed. Second, a false narrative is invented for the public, low-level government bureaucrats, and military grunts to serve the goals of the nation's power elite and justify government aggression abroad; third, eye-witnesses who tell a different narrative about the attack are dismissed out of hand by the press and government councils, and murdered by secret government agents if ignoring them doesn't work; finally, a concerted effort is made to obliterate free thought, and cover up the facts and evidence that disproves the official narrative. In this stage, critical public discussion about the government's narrative is banned, debate about the rationale for the wars and aggression is shut off, and critics who question the government are called unpatriotic, crazy, paranoid, and generally mocked and insulted.

The most important part is the bigness of the lie. The biggest lie has to be told in order to subdue critical thinking and foster automatic, unconscious reactions by people to contradictions in the official government narrative. The lie has to be so big that it stops people from asking even the most basic of questions such as how can a tall steel building collapse onto itself without resistance as a result of fire for the first time in history? Or why was Philip D. Zelikow, a political insider connected to the Bush administration and an admitted historical myth-maker, appointed to head the 9/11 commission when there were hundreds of other qualified candidates?

A big lie is targeted at an individual's psychological sanctity and reasoning abilities so that they automatically react emotionally to critics who espouse a different version of the narrative instead of addressing their questions in a rational, fair, and logical manner. The lie must so big that it overpowers logic and common sense, or else it won't be believed in by the majority of people.

If Goebbels was America's propaganda minister on November 22, 1963, August 2, 1964, and September 11, 2001, he would have endorsed and applauded the American empire's lie about the murder of JFK and the subsequent cover-up, the invention of the false story about the Gulf of Tonkin incident that led to the Vietnam war, and the tragic events on 9/11 which justified a massive imperialist agenda in the Middle East. If Goebbels was in charge of America's unofficial propaganda ministries like ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Fox News, the New York Times, and the Washington Post, the news programming would be the same. These media institutions and the entire Western press helped to indoctrinate the American people and the world about the 9/11 attacks, the dangers of non-state terrorism, and America's purpose in Afghanistan and larger the war on terrorism.

Bailey writes, "there is official history and there is what actually happened." The tyrants in Washington's National Security Regime "fear the truth and the public’s lack of confidence in them and their seat of power." Although they can invent history and create big lies, they cannot control people's thoughts and shape human destiny forever. They can frame the national debate around certain issues, and accuse critics of being conspiracy theorists, but sooner or later that con trick is figured out and the people realize that they were lied to on a grand scale. In truth, official myth-makers and government historians like Philip D. Zelikow are spiritual weaklings and intellectual dwarfs. They require a machinery of secrecy to protect their lies and crimes. When that machinery is broken down, they become powerless and revert back to being the sad and cowardly little creatures that they are inside.

The truth about 9/11 and the government assassinations of JFK, MLK, and RFK will see the light of day, and real history will be reclaimed. It is unhistorical to say otherwise. History is full of examples of the good triumphing over evil in the final hours. The tyrants in Washington have acted against the laws of nature, and the laws of God, so it is a certainty that they will lose the war for history and human destiny and perish from the Earth. As Bailey says, "They fail every time they have to resort to Nazi-style propaganda techniques in order to present their case, and by doing so, show us how weak their case really is."
