“Ed Curtin invites us to go deep sea diving—beyond the shallows of U.S. political and spiritual life where most researchers and writers paddle, into the dark realms of intelligence operatives, paid killers, and institutions of deception. It is a disturbing journey but a necessary one, and he is a brilliant guide.” – says author Graeme MacQueen in touting Edward Curtin and his new book, “Seeking Truth in a Country of Lies”
“The world is a terrible and terrifying place. There are few who possess both the artistry and political understanding to see and describe the depths of the deceptions practiced upon us. Ed Curtin is one of these few. His powerful and beautiful essays will give us reasons to look the truth in the eye, and to have hope.” Emanuel E. Garcia, MD, writer, director, actor, and psychoanalyst – who are among the learned that also endorsed Curtin’s new-analysis, writing, and his new book.
“You can almost hear the clickety clack of an old typewriter’s keystrokes as you read Ed Curtin’s crisp, penetrating, well evidenced, and insightful writing,” said L.A. “Tony” Kovach, co-founder of MHProNews.
“History doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes.” – So said Samuel Clemens, a.k.a. Mark Twain.
“We study history in order to understand the present and prepare for the future. Because anything that has happened before can happen again.” House Majority Whip James “Jim” Clyburn (SC-D) on 2.29.2020. Clyburn taught history for years.
The news-analysis below will be followed by some related disclosures, additional information and analysis by MHProNews. Some not familiar with these themes and the author might view what follows from Curtin as bomb-throwing, hyperbole, conspiracy theory on steroids, or mere attention seeking. Beyond the endorsements above, a few relevant pull quotes in this thoughtfully documented critique by Edward Curtin that follows illustrate that point. As you or someone you know reads this and considers the linked support Curtin cites, probing thinkers should keep in mind that other voices – including from the intelligence community, big media, big business, government, nonprofits, etc. that span the left-right divide – have made similar evidence- and experienced-based arguments.
With that tee up, the following pull quotes should make it plain why this matters to our profession, Americans in general, and most others.
- “The corporate mainstream media [Curtin names several] are stenographers for the national security state’s ongoing psychological operations aimed at the American people, just as they have done the same for an international audience.”
- “CIA officers Cord Myer and Frank Wisner operated secret programs… especially focused on and successful in “courting the Compatible Left” since right wingers were already in the agency’s pocket. All this is documented and not disputed. It is shocking only to those who don’t do their homework and see what is happening today outside a broad historical context.”
- “Their [named journalists] critique of old school journalism à la Edward Herman and Noam Chomsky’s Manufacturing of Consent model, while true as far as it goes, fails to pin the tail on the real donkey…”
- “They work for their overlords, the super wealthy people, the banks, financial institutions, and corporations that own the U.S…” Those super wealthy people Curtin linked in the underscored below include several of the same billionaires that MHProNews and MHLivingNews has been reporting on by name for some years.
- “They [those named in Curtin’s report] are the international overlords who are pushing hard to move the world toward a global dictatorship.”
For newcomers to this site, some or all of that may seem shocking or outrageous. That’s why the evidence linked by Curtin matters. For longtime readers who have a keen memory and are detail minded, what follows will broadly confirm much that has been previously published. It is not just our profession that has been ‘rigged’ in a fashion that Sam Strommen from Knudson law called a case for “felony” and possible RICO violations. The nation itself has been rigged in favor of a few at great cost to the many.
So, what makes this news-analysis by Curtin relevant and of keen interest is this. His writing and sources stand entirely apart from our own MHProNews research into similar issues. Our study of these matters traced back from our industry-specific examination of evidence and trends impacting our affordable housing profession. From there, following the evidence and the money, our research mirrors Curtin’s evidence, thinking, and powerful allegations.
>>> Put differently, starting from distinctive perches, by following the evidence, trends, and the money trail, similar conclusions are discovered. In an objective or scientific inquiry, that is significant.
So the issues Curtin points to impacts our profession, everyday vs. insider investors, most of the USA, and thus tens of millions. While Curtin paints a dark picture, by its very revelation it is also a source of light. From light springs hope, just as sunshine is the proverbial best disinfectant.
With no further adieu, here is Curtin’s news-analysis on why RFK Jr. is being censored. As noted, it will be followed by additional information, disclosures, MHProNews analysis and commentary.
The Real Reason Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Is Being Censored
RFK, Jr.’s banishment from Instagram is not just because he raises informed questions about vaccines, Bill Gates and Big Pharma, but because he suggests something more dangerous is afoot: the demise of democracy and the rise of a totalitarian order.
By Edward Curtin
“The CIA and the media are part of the same criminal conspiracy,” wrote Douglas Valentine in his important book, “The CIA As Organized Crime.”
This is true. The corporate mainstream media are stenographers for the national security state’s ongoing psychological operations aimed at the American people, just as they have done the same for an international audience.
We have long been subjected to this “information warfare,” whose purpose is to win the hearts and minds of the American people and pacify them into victims of their own complicity, just as it was practiced long ago by the CIA in Vietnam and by The New York Times, CBS, etc. on the American people then and over the years as the American warfare state waged endless wars, coups, false flag operations and assassinations at home and abroad.
Another way of putting this is to say for all practical purposes when it comes to matters that bear on important foreign and domestic matters, the CIA and the corporate mainstream media cannot be distinguished.
For those who read and study history, it has long been known that the CIA has placed their operatives throughout every agency of the U.S. government, as explained by Fletcher Prouty in “The Secret Team,” that CIA officers Cord Myer and Frank Wisner operated secret programs to get some of the most vocal exponents of intellectual freedom among intellectuals, journalists, and writers to be their voices for unfreedom and censorship. As explained by Frances Stonor Saunders in “The Cultural Cold War” and Joel Whitney in “Finks,” among others, that Cord Myer was especially focused on and successful in “courting the Compatible Left” since right wingers were already in the agency’s pocket.
All this is documented and not disputed. It is shocking only to those who don’t do their homework and see what is happening today outside a broad historical context.
With the rise of alternate media and a wide array of dissenting voices on the internet, the establishment felt threatened and went on the defensive. It, therefore, should come as no surprise that those same elite corporate media are now leading the charge for increased censorship and the denial of free speech to those they deem dangerous, whether that involves wars, rigged elections, foreign coups, COVID-19, vaccinations or the lies of the corporate media themselves.
Having already banned critics from writing in their pages and or talking on their screens, these media giants want to make the quieting of dissenting voices complete.
Just the other day The New York Times had this headline:
“Robert Kennedy Jr. Barred From Instagram Over False Virus Claims.”
Notice the lack of the word alleged before “false virus claims.” This is guilt by headline. It is a perfect piece of propaganda posing as reporting, since it accuses Kennedy, a brilliant and honorable man, of falsity and stupidity, thus justifying Instagram’s ban, and it is an inducement to further censorship of Mr. Kennedy by Facebook, Instagram’s parent company.
That ban should follow soon, as the Times’ reporter Jennifer Jett hopes, since she accusingly writes that RFK, Jr. “makes many of the same baseless claims to more than 300,000 followers” on Facebook. Jett made sure her report also went to MSN.com and The Boston Globe.
This is one example of the censorship underway with much, much more to follow. What was once done under the cover of omission is now done openly and brazenly, cheered on by those who, in an act of bad faith, claim to be upholders of the First Amendment and the importance of free debate in a democracy. We are quickly slipping into an unreal totalitarian social order.
First, the corporate media have today divided up the territory and speak only to their own audiences in echo chambers: liberal to liberals (read: the “allegedly” liberal Democratic Party), such as The New York Times, NBC, etc., and conservative to conservatives (read “the allegedly” conservative Donald Trump), such as Fox News, Breitbart, etc.
They have abandoned old school journalism that, despite its shortcomings, involved objectivity and the reporting of disparate facts and perspectives, but within limits. Since the digitization of news, their new business models are geared to these separate audiences since they are highly lucrative choices. It’s business-driven since electronic media have replaced paper as advertising revenues have shifted and people’s ability to focus on complicated issues has diminished drastically.
Old school journalism is suffering as a result and thus writers such as Greenwald and Taibbi and Chris Hedges (who interviewed Taibbi and concurs: part one here) have taken their work to the internet to escape such restrictive categories and the accompanying censorship.
Secondly, the great call for censorship is not something the Silicon Valley companies want because they want more people using their media since it means more money for them, but they are being pressured to do it by the traditional old school media, such as The New York Times, who now employ “tattletales and censors,” people who are power-hungry jerks, to sniff out dissenting voices that they can recommend should be banned.
“They do it in part for power: to ensure nobody but they can control the flow of information. They do it partly for ideology and out of hubris: the belief that their worldview is so indisputably right that all dissent is inherently dangerous ‘disinformation.’”
Thus, the old school print and television media are not on the same page as Facebook, Twitter, etc. but have opposing agendas.
In short, these shifts and the censorship are about money and power within the media world as the business has been transformed by the digital revolution.
I think this is a half-truth that conceals a larger issue. The censorship is not being driven by power-hungry reporters at the Times or CNN or any media outlet. All these media and their employees are but the outer layer of the onion, the means by which messages are sent and people controlled.
These companies and their employees do what they are told, whether explicitly or implicitly, for they know it is in their financial interest to do so. If they do not play their part in this twisted and intricate propaganda game, they will suffer. They will be eliminated, as are pesky individuals who dare peel the onion to its core.
For each media company is one part of a large interconnected intelligence apparatus — a system, a complex — whose purpose is power, wealth and domination for the very few at the expense of the many. The CIA and media as parts of the same criminal conspiracy.
To argue that the Silicon valley companies do not want to censor but are being pressured by the legacy corporate media does not make sense. These companies are deeply connected to U.S. intelligence agencies, as are the NY Times, CNN, NBC etc. They too are part of what was once called “Operation Mockingbird,” the CIA’s program to control, use and infiltrate the media. Only the most naïve would think that such a program does not exist today.
In Surveillance Valley, investigative reporter Yasha Levine documents how Silicon Valley tech companies like Facebook, Amazon, and Google are tied to the military-industrial-intelligence-media complex in surveillance and censorship; how the Internet was created by the Pentagon; and even how these shadowy players are deeply involved in the so-called privacy movement that developed after Edward Snowden’s revelations.
Like Valentine, and in very detailed ways, Levine shows how the military-industrial-intelligence-digital-media complex is part of the same criminal conspiracy as is the traditional media with their CIA overlords. It is one club.
Many people, however, might find this hard to believe because it bursts so many bubbles, including the one that claims that these tech companies are pressured into censorship by the likes of The New York Times, etc. The truth is the Internet was a military and intelligence tool from the very beginning and it is not the traditional corporate media that gives it its marching orders.
That being so, it is not the owners of the corporate media or their employees who are the ultimate controllers behind the current vast crackdown on dissent, but the intelligence agencies who control the mainstream media and the Silicon Valley monopolies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, etc. All these media companies are but the outer layer of the onion, the means by which messages are sent and people controlled.
But for whom do these intelligence agencies work? Not for themselves.
They work for their overlords, the super wealthy people, the banks, financial institutions, and corporations that own the U.S and always have. In a simple twist of fate, such super wealthy naturally own the media corporations that are essential to their control of the majority of the world’s wealth through the stories they tell.
It is a symbiotic relationship.
As Franklin D. Roosevelt put it bluntly in 1933, this coterie of wealthy forces is the “financial element in the larger centers [that] has owned the government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson.” Their wealth and power has increased exponentially since then, and their connected tentacles have further spread to create what is an international deep state that involves such entities as the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the World Economic Forum, those who meet yearly at Davos etc.
They are the international overlords who are pushing hard to move the world toward a global dictatorship.
As is well known, or should be, the CIA was the creation of Wall St. and serves the interests of the wealthy owners. Peter Dale Scott, in “The State, the Deep State, and the Wall Street Overworld,” says of Allen Dulles, the nefarious longest-running Director of the CIA and Wall St. lawyer for Sullivan and Cromwell:
“There seems to be little difference in Allen Dulles’s influence whether he was a Wall Street lawyer or a CIA director.”
It was Dulles, long connected to Rockefeller’s Standard Oil, international corporations and a friend of Nazi agents and scientists, who was tasked with drawing up proposals for the CIA. He was ably assisted by five Wall St. bankers or investors, including the aforementioned Frank Wisner who later, as a CIA officer, said his “Mighty Wurlitzer” was “capable of playing any propaganda tune he desired.”
This he did by recruiting intellectuals, writers, reporters, labor organizations, and the mainstream corporate media, etc. to propagate the CIA’s messages.
Greenwald, Taibbi, and Hedges are correct up to a point, but they stop short. Their critique of old school journalism à la Edward Herman and Noam Chomsky’s Manufacturing of Consent model, while true as far as it goes, fails to pin the tail on the real donkey. Like old school journalists who knew implicitly how far they could go, these guys know it too, as if there is an invisible electronic gate that keeps them from wandering into dangerous territory.
The censorship of Robert Kennedy, Jr. is an exemplary case. His banishment from Instagram and the ridicule the mainstream media have heaped upon him for years is not simply because he raises deeply informed questions about vaccines, Bill Gates, the pharmaceutical companies, etc. His critiques suggest something far more dangerous is afoot: the demise of democracy and the rise of a totalitarian order that involves total surveillance, control, eugenics, etc. by the wealthy led by their intelligence propagandists.
To call him a super spreader of hoaxes and a conspiracy theorist is aimed at not only silencing him on specific medical issues, but to silence his powerful and articulate voice on all issues. To give thoughtful consideration to his deeply informed scientific thinking concerning vaccines, the World Health Organization, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, etc., is to open a can of worms that the powerful want shut tight.
This is because RFK, Jr. is also a severe critic of the enormous power of the CIA and its propaganda that goes back so many decades and was used to cover up the national security state’s assassination of both his father and his uncle.
It is why his wonderful recent book, “American Values: Lessons I Learned from My Family,” that contains not one word about vaccines, was shunned by mainstream book reviewers; for the picture he paints fiercely indicts the CIA in multiple ways while also indicting the mass media that have been its mouthpieces.
These worms must be kept in the can, just as the power of the international overlords represented by the World Health Organization and the World Economic Forum with its Great Reset must be. They must be dismissed as crackpot conspiracy theories not worthy of debate or exposure.
Robert Kennedy, Jr., by name and dedication to truth seeking, conjures up his father’s ghost, the last politician who, because of his vast support across racial and class divides, could have united the country and tamed the power of the CIA to control the narrative that has allowed for the plundering of the world and the country for the wealthy overlords.
So they killed him.
There is a reason Noam Chomsky is an exemplar for Hedges, Greenwald and Taibbi. He controls the can opener for so many. He has set the parameters for what is considered acceptable to be considered a serious journalist or intellectual. The assassinations of the Kennedys, 9/11, or a questioning of the official COVID-19 story are not among them, and so they are eschewed.
To denounce censorship, as they have done, is admirable. But now Greenwald, Taibbi and Hedges need to go up to the forbidden gate with the sign that says — “This far and no further” — and jump over it. That’s where the true stories lie. That’s when they’ll see the worms squirm. ##

Additional Information, MHProNews Analysis and Commentary
The prudent policy is to apply the principle of separating the wheat from the chaff to all people, organizations, and things. Thus, publishing the above is not to imply that every item that is linked or said by those cited is automatically agreed to by MHProNews and our parent company. That said, MHProNews editorially concurs with the thrust of this news-analysis.
Among the points Curtin cited was the call for breaking up the tech monopolies. Not regulating them, breaking them up. That is a call that MHProNews editorially made too along with a call to break up Microsoft, Berkshire Hathaway, other FAANG brands, and their so-called nonprofits too.
There is an old expression that for some, no amount of evidence or proof will do. That is true for those so closed minded that they will not open their eyes to see.
Indeed, beyond the
- “blinding propaganda” Greenwald has cited,
- or the rising threat of totalitarianism from the Biden-Harris team and their puppet masters that Naomi Wolf – an ex-Clinton ally who says she regrets voting for Biden – recently underscored, there are voices across the left-right divide that are making similar clarion calls to what Curtin and Kennedy have raised.
As to the risk of a surveillance state and propagandizing controls involving Silicon Valley – which Curtin satirically and aptly calls “Surveillance Valley” – an entirely different report from 2017 out of England made similar warnings. The trailer below by Journeyman Pictures is an investigative documentary that is currently available on Amazon Prime for streaming. It provides evidence of “mass surveillance technology” that has been used for years. It mentions how governments are working with corporations to build files and track information once thought private or that in America would have once required a warrant to access. While the subject of “Weapons of Mass Surveillance” is focused on England, parts of Europe, and several Muslim nations, the principles those investigators reported clearly apply to what is occurring elsewhere, including the U.S.
The Journeyman Pictures investigation echoes what National Security Administration (NSA) whistleblower Edward Snowden revealed was occurring in America.
President Obama explains in his own words why he doesn’t think that Edward Snowden’s actions were patriotic. Seriously?
Wherever someone comes down on that question, it is the Obama-Biden Administration that then targeted journalists, leakers, and even carried out executions of American citizens on foreign soil without benefit of a trial. Who says? Numerous mainstream news reports.
It will be tempting for numbers to do nothing and cower in fear. But that only feeds the beast that threatens our collective liberties. The good news is that it is relatively small numbers that are controlling our nation.
To make this industry specific, MHProNews reported some years ago, based on inside sources in the Berkshire Hathaway owned brands among others, that they have files on numerous individual companies and persons within our industry.
Understanding and information sharing are the first steps. Organized, thoughtful resistance are the next steps. Understanding the legal and constitutional tools available to battle those who now control much of the le
The bottom line?
Curtin has made a compelling argument in defense of RFK Jr who has been blowing the whistle on several troubling issues in our nation for years.
