The Greatest Story Never Told?


Larry Flynt is still Bob Livingston's worst nightmare.

If you had any doubts on the unholy alliance between MegaCorps, Government, and the MSM, let this story dispel those doubts for good.

I've been following Edmonds' story since she first went public and while I'm glad to see she has finally spilled the beans without being arrested (or worse), the frightening picture she has painted and the total media blackout on what could be the largest, treasonous conspiracy in the history of the county has left me rather hollow.

It's one thing to feel hopeless in the face of the Wall Street/bank bailouts, staggering unemployment, Obama's broken promises, perpetual war....yada yada yada.....but coming to the realization that elected and appointed officials at the highest levels of our country's government are quite simply for sale to the highest foreign bidder is beyond disconcerting for me. Compounded with the fact that the 4th Estate has refused to inform us of these traitor's transgressions, I can safely say that I have no hope left for our country's integrity.

If our country's leaders have become so compromised that they're putting other country's interests above our own for a payout, if the investigative bodies of our government turn a blind eye to these practices, if our journalistic body complies with special interests and refuses to inform us of these cancers which plague us....we're not living in a representative democracy anymore, we're living in a vile simulacra.

I suppose I will concentrate on my city, as my optimism for it has never been higher...for America, I fear it may be too late.

Jesus. What a story. The mind boggles.

Also, Larry freaking Flint and Hustler as the new standard bearer for journalistic integrity and guts is right up there with The National Enquirer breaking the 'John Edwards is a terrible man' story.

"Exposed: Rapper Eve's Boob" and "Oh, yeah, upper echlon people in the government of the USA are traitors and selling nuclear secrets to whomever wants to buy."

Sweet Jesus.

But I guess if one has to read terrifying and disturbing stories, it helps to surround those stories with pictures of (always comforting) boobies.

Vile simulacra is a depressingly apt description, Zombie.

yeah that article is from 2008. she was gagged by the Bush Admin. under the states secrets law. She's only recently (Obama admin.) come forward naming names and telling what she knew.

There's much, much more to the story than what Hustler reports.

Larry Flint was the first Editor I ever saw ask the question (during Vietnam): "Would you rather see a young American with their guts spread or a Beaver with her legs spread".

Al Jazeera English has a story about coup plotters in Turkey on their front page today.

Reading that story after reading the Hustler story about those douchebags spying for Turkey is more than a little scary. Try it.

I agree on both fronts--I am working on a plan to get back to the City in three years (job or no job). I have lots of faith in not only the direction of our city but in how I can help. On the other hand, I fear America is a lost cause. And if it is going to crumble before me, I can think of no better place to watch it fall than from New Orleans.

and newspapers wonder why they are dying?

Also, I don't think we're pissed off enough.
