Censorship: The Bush Junta Raids The Library (english)
28 Feb 2003
Most Americans despise censorship. It is alien to our very nature and is an assault on our freedoms and liberty. Yet more and more Americans are now turning to
foreign news sites on the internet for the truth about today’s world events especially concerning war with Iraq. We no longer trust the current regime, network news
or major papers to deliver the truth. We know that the media is nothing more than the mouthpiece of the Bush regime. In short, Americans in increasing numbers are
taking notice, that the media is censored and is propagandizing the news.
Censorship: The Bush Junta Raids The Library



2/28/2003

From the streets of Little Beirut

By Glen Yeadon

Most Americans despise censorship. It is alien to our very nature and is an assault on our freedoms and liberty. Yet more and more Americans are now turning to
foreign news sites on the internet for the truth about today’s world events especially concerning war with Iraq. We no longer trust the current regime, network news
or major papers to deliver the truth. We know that the media is nothing more than the mouthpiece of the Bush regime. In short, Americans in increasing numbers are
taking notice, that the media is censored and is propagandizing the news. A good example comes from the presidential inauguration ---err---better make that the
appointment of George Bush as fuehrer in January 2001. I was struck with how frequent Dan Rather used the term peaceful transition of power during the
broadcast. Everyone recognized the lie; it was not a peaceful transition of power it was a velvet coup; the election had been stolen.

. Since then despite looking like buffoons the media still cites the non-existence evidence of this regime’s claims of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction. It fails to
report that truth; it failed to report that this administration tore out over a thousand pages of the UN report. Those missing pages implicated American corporations
that had supplied Iraq with equipment to produce weapons of mass destruction. Included in that list was Haliburton, which supplied millions of dollars of equipment
under the direction of former CEO Dick Cheney. Now thanks to the foreign press we know that the defense minister Rummy was a board member of ABB when it
approved sales of nukes to North Korea.

Censorship and propagandizing the media by the CIA was supposed to have stopped in the mid 1970s after the Church Committee investigated the CIA’s Project
Mockingbird. At the time, every major media outlet was infected by Mockingbird. Coexisting with Project Mockingbird was a FBI operation named
COINTELPRO. COINTELPRO was successful in not only destroying leftist groups but also more importantly the press of the left. Ramparts was a major target
eliminated by COINTELPRO. In one short decade, the alternative press had been wiped out.

In any other country, such operations as the Great Red Scare of 1919, McCarthyism and COINTELPRO would be considered purges. One of the factors that
brought Hitler to power was the repressive purging of leftist groups in Germany during the 1920s. The same factor is responsible for the presence of the current
regime in the White House. COINTELPRO eliminated any voices on the left. Things have progressed to such a sad state of affairs in the media that in response to a
question by a French reporter, the propaganda minister of this regime was laughed out of the briefing room. However, that is all the American media did it laughed; it
failed to report the truth or the web of lies Ari was trying to spin.

Since America’s Riechstag’s Fire of 9/11, this administration has passed the extremely repressive Patriotic Act. It is now trying to pass an even more repressive act.
Both acts allow the government unrestricted spying on its citizens. Your records at the library and the local bookstore are open to federal investigators, no search
warrants needed. Further, the library and bookstore are prohibited from informing you that your records were checked. In fact, yesterday’s news carried an article
of a public defender in New Mexico, who was arrested in a library for remarks he made about this current regime in an online chat room.

This brings us to the topic of this article a second hidden form of censorship. Four and half years ago I started writing a book about fascism in America. For much of
the background information, I relied on already published works. Most of the works were out of print but easily obtained in the used book market. About two years
ago I started having problems obtaining certain books they were either prohibitively expensive or simply not available at any price. Since that time, I have
encountered over twenty books that are no longer available. At least one independent bookstore owner is on record of stating that many of these books are being
bought up by the hundreds and shipped to Langley.

This second form of censorship is taking place unnoticed by the public only a few researchers are aware of it. What follows is a short list of some of the books that
are now disappearing and the results of searching the Advanced Book Exchange. For those, not familiar with Advanced Book Exchange it is a site for all
independent bookstores worldwide to list their stock.

The Plot to Seize the White House—Archer-1972---2 copies available - $100 and $175

Martin Bormann: Nazi In Exile—Manning—1981—3 copies available $175 to $388

Secret Agenda---Hunt---1991---2 copies---$100 to $150.

Trial of the Octopus -- Goddard ---1993---$87 to $750

The History of Standard Oil Company—Tarbell---1966(last printing)--$135 to $950

The Secret Society—Anthony Cave Brown—none available

All Honorable Men—Martin---none available

Secret Man---Dux---1996—9 available $70 to $125

A Century of War—Engdahl—none available

Tragedy and Hope—Quigley---both printings---14 available $50 to $250

The Third Option—Shackley—1981—none available

This writer has a copy of Secret Agenda that he purchased about four years ago for less than $20. When I first started writing my book both Bormann and All
Honorable Men were widely available for less than thirty dollars. Tragedy and Hope for along time was unavailable for less than $300. The printer broke the plates
to prevent further distribution. However, it has since undergone a second printing but only after a lawsuit by the author. The Secret Society has been to the printer
for seven times only to have the printing run canceled. It is the third part of the author’s study of Bill Donovan’s life and his role in the OSS. The reader should note
that many of these books were printed in the 1990s. All of the books above are regarded as classics by experts in the field and were circulated and sold widely.

The list above is only a partial list of books that this writer has found to be unavailable. What was a trickle four and half years ago when I first started writing my
book is fast turning into a torrent. Books dealing with the darker side of the CIA and America’s right wing association with fascism are disappearing at an alarming
rate from the shelves of libraries. This form of censorship is going unnoticed by the public. This Orwellian nightmare is occurring today. If allowed to continue in a
few short years the library shelves will be barren of factual works that took dedicated writers years to research while incriminating files from the government archives
can be burned.

There is no question of the Bush family’s allegiance to Nazism. George Jr’s grandpappy, Prescott had three companies seized from him for trading with the enemy
during the war. He served as Hitler’s US banker. George, Jr’s daddy was the man responsible for setting up the pro-Nazi ethnic heritage groups in the Republican
Party. George Jr early in his regime indicated that his regime would not support a hard line for settlement with the Jews that perished under the Third Reich.

We had an early glimpse of what George Jr’s views were on our freedoms when during the election campaign he said there ought to be limits on them. He was
referring to a web site that reported the facts. We have another glimpse as to how ruthless Jr. and the junta behind him are when they stopped the publication of a
book that was less than kind to him in the publication of Jim Hatfield’s Fortunate Son. The Bush propaganda machine worked overtime to destroy the author until St
Martins dropped publishing the book. Hatfield himself was driven to suicide by an unrelenting and ruthless attack on his character after a small secondary publisher
agreed to publish the book. In short, an example was made of Hatfield for all that may follow.

As for myself, I will continue with my book as research dictates. I will continue to make available the unedited version of the Nazi Hydra on my web site until I am
forced by this regime to do otherwise. The information is too important to quibble about any lost of future sales once I can publish it.

I urge the reader to check the availability of the titles above in their local library and inform themselves. Don’t allow this ruthless regime to rewrite history as
happened in Orwell’s 1984.
