The best part of this crap film was when Agent Perez (Rosario Dawson) pokes out the all seeing eye of the supercomputer named ARIA. I think this movie was based on the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Total Information Awareness research program. Other than that, it’s a typical Hymiewood shit bomb where a young Jew (Shia Lebouf), uses chutzpah to save the day.
Meets with John F. Kennedy Assassination Lawyer Mark Lane
Mel Gibson’s “Baby Mama” Oksana Grigorieva claimed to the paparazzi who were following her that there was no extortion plot and that her Oscar-winning ex-boyfriend is a liar. However, sources say that Oksana’s kid sister Natalie Grigorieva likely sold the “Gibson rant tapes” to the Web site RadarOnline.com.
In related news, Oksana’s charge that Gibson plotted to murder a Jewish movie producer likely is false.
The tide of opinion in the Gibson-Grigorieva dust-up has turned against Oksana recently, as the shock of the Gibson rant tapes has worn off. She is developing a reputation in some quarters as a pathological liar as more details of the case leak out and her charges against Gibson get wilder, as does the cast of characters.
Meanwhile, attorney Mark Lane — the lawyer who made his name writing the 1966 book Rush to Judgment that alleged there was a conspiracy to kill President John F. Kennedy in Dallas — met with Grigorieva at her home in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Sherman Oaks. The granddaddy of all JFK conspiracy theorists, the controversial Lane also was notorious for being the lawyer for Jim Jones and his People’s Temple. He supported Jones’ contention that he and the People’s Temple were the target of a government conspiracy.
In November 1978, Lane was present in “Jonestown” — Jim Jones compound in the Guyana jungle — when Congressman Leo Ryan was assassinated and Jones was killed while 900 of his followers committed (or were forced to commit) suicide. Lane claimed that U.S. military forces helped carry out the execution or there were agents provocateur at the compound who triggered the carnage. He wrote a book on the Jonestwon tragedy, The Strongest Poison.
Observers of Oksana Grigorieva believe that he is being brought in as he is an “expert” on sound recordings as evidence. Conspiracy theorists often use audio evidence to back up their contention there was more than one assassin in Dallas and more than three shots were fired.

The chief defense of the conspirators in this Age of Revelation (revelations largely made by the conspirators themselves), against prosecution and punishment for their crimes, has been to confuse the truth and mix it into a salad bowl of falsehood.
The agents of the System have seeded the ideas that everything causes cancer and everyone killed Kennedy. The corollary being that the study of the food that makes one ill and the food that nourishes is so fraught with counter-claims and ambiguity as to be impossible to unravel, therefore eat anything you want because you’ll get cancer no matter what you do.
In a similar process, the competing solutions to the riddle of who killed Kennedy seem to carry equal degrees of plausibility in the mind of the public: Castro did it and so did the anti-Castroites; the Communists killed him and so did the anti-Communists; it was the CIA; the Mafia; the military-industrial complex; the Mossad, MI5, the masons, the Birchers, your grandmother and my Uncle Ned.
After a time the whole JFK investigation dissolves into a stew of contradictions more puzzling than the original mystery and we are left demoralized and apathetic. If everyone killed Kennedy then in a sense no one did, because indictment and punishment are impossible when faced with such a miasma of conflicting theories.
As the deliberately planted confusion grows, so does the establishment’s hypnotic suggestion that conspiracy investigators are an obnoxious nuisance and just plain nuts. That has been the state of the chess game between those seeking to bring the conspirators to justice and those seeking to cover up for them so that they might continue in power.
But now we have a new revelation, in the form of the movie “Conspiracy Theory” which restores credibility to the investigators and validates their concerns.
In a subject freighted with the pompous and melodramatic, “Conspiracy Theory” disarms us with the saving grace of humor, introducing N.Y. cabbie Jerry Fletcher (Mel Gibson) in several comic vignettes that endear us to him in spite of his whacky, paranoid beliefs. In the first third of the film we’re sure he’s delusional but he’s won our affection with his goofy love of life (the film’s theme-song includes the significant song lyric, “I thank God I’m alive”).
And Jerry is delusional. But he’s also right. How’s that? Well, the movie shows that Jerry mixes about the same level of fact, fiction and fantasy as other conspiracy theorists. But the film makes the important point that some of it is valid, that Jerry is on to something and that just because he’s wrong on some things does not signify that everything he asserts is wrong.
Jerry talks a lot of trash. He says George Bush is a 33rd degree Freemason (he’s not, he’s a member of the Skull and Bones society). He claims that if Hollywood director Oliver Stone was really telling the truth in his conspiracy epics, he would have been killed by now. (Jerry is ignorant of the Revelation of the Method process, in which the conspirators of the modern era sanction the release of secrets about their operations).
He’s obsessed with J.D. Salinger’s over-rated novel of adolescent alienation, “A Catcher in the Rye” (the favorite of John Lennon’s assassin), though he admits he hasn’t read it. (This writer knows of no occult or conspiratorial elements in the book).
Jerry also maintains that all serial killers have two names, but all assassins have three. He notes that serial killers Ted Bundy and David Berkowitz have two names while assassins Lee Harvey Oswald and James Earl Ray have three. In this respect, Jerry’s full of it. The top serial killer of all time, with 33 victims, was John Wayne Gacy, a three-name serialist. Huey Long’s killer was reported to be Carl Weiss, a two-name assassin. Jerry’s wrong, but what prophet or mystic or hunch-player isn’t, sometimes? The guy with the uncanny knack for playing the stock market or the horses is not infallible, he’s wrong almost as often as he’s right, but he’s right enough times to earn his living at it.
In the realm of conspiracy-denial, the tendency is to dismiss someone like Jerry because he’s got his serial killer and assassin nomenclature wrong or because he slips on George Bush’s background. But the fact is, Jerry is right enough times for a powerful government agency to want him dead.
It turns out that Jerry is an MK-Ultra initiate who goes in and out of various states of lucidity and delusion. Much of what he says is nonsense but the kernel of truth he possesses is so potentially lethal that it justifies his paranoia.
And that’s the message of “Conspiracy Theory.” Sure there are a lot of nuts investigating conspiracies these days and plenty of disinformation, just like in the daily newspaper. But just because the daily newspaper seeks to delude us by printing nonsensical claims that the Israeli government is benevolent and the Federal Reserve is Constitutional, doesn’t mean that we should reject it when it prints a story about a local restaurant opening or our old elementary school teacher dying. We sift and analyze and continue to use the daily paper as a source about which we apply our powers of critical thinking and analysis.
This is what the film “Conspiracy Theory” is telling us. Don’t dismiss every suggestion that “our” government is in conspiracy against us. The fundamental wisdom concerning this world is that appearances are deceptive. Nothing is what it seems. Be vigilant.
“Conspiracy Theory” boosts our morale by showing the badly outgunned Jerry Fletcher fighting back and resisting the enormous forces arrayed against him. Time and again he foils the smug Federal agents who pursue him with state-of-the-art black helicopters, cell phones and squads of hit-men in new vans. In one scene he ties up traffic and eludes his high-tech pursuers in nothing more than a broken down old car abandoned on a bridge. The repeated frustrations of the pursuing “spooks” is a joy to behold.
“Conspiracy Theory” also serves as a message of empowerment to the hordes of Americans who do believe in conspiracies but who have gotten the wrong message from them and have become paralyzed in fear of an all-powerful Federal government. Their response is to hoard all the money they can, find a hideout somewhere and wait out Armageddon.
Millions have fallen victim to this paralysis. They have left the field of battle without a figurative shot being fired, while victory was still possible, because their opponents seeded into their minds the notion that all resistance is futile, which is the strategy of Sun Tzu, “The superior man wins the battle without fighting.”
But Jerry Fletcher fights the battle, against great odds–like every man worthy of the name–and he prevails by dint of his courage and faith.
Like Jerry, the American people are also initiates–not perhaps directly at the hands of the CIA’s MK Ultra project–but as percipients in the Videodrome occult theatre which works through the medium of Hollywood and the TV networks, flashing subliminal symbols and highly symbolic, brutalizing sex and death cues. The resulting parodoxical heightened awareness mixed with jaded sensibilities produces delusions and ennui swirling in our midst like a vengeful phantom from the collective subconscious.
There are a couple of false notes in “Conspiracy Theory.” Fletcher pontificates against junk food-eaters (“They’re in a conspiracy against themselves”) but later is shown wolfing down a cardboard-looking, mass market pizza.
The movie makes a case for the notion that there are some good agents within the Federal octopus and that not all are cooperating with evil. These supposedly good agents drive off into the sunset joking with Jerry Fletcher. Are these “good Feds” anything like Lon Horiuchi, the home-schooling, conservative Catholic FBI sniper who murdered Vicki Weaver in her own home at Ruby Ridge, Idaho, while she was holding her infant in her arms?
Gibson’s character also takes Christ’s name in vain in a single instance (a growing Hollywood phenomenon exhibited in such supposedly wholesome, patriotic cinematic fare as “Air Force One” and “Independence Day”).
Gibson might respond by asking us to be less Pharisaic in our judgment of the requirements of his acting craft, but the holiness of Christ’s name is taken very seriously in traditional Roman Catholicism, where an entire men’s association–the Holy Name Society–is devoted to defending and honoring it. There’s nothing Pharisaic about such a concern and there are a couple of Biblical passages that make profound statements concerning the sacredness of His name (Acts 4:12; Revelation 14:1).
In spite of these flaws, “Conspiracy Theory” is a shot-in-the-arm for truth-seekers, suggesting that we come out and fight evil and that the combat itself is part of what makes life worth living. Paranoid Jerry Fletcher–warrior and truthseeker–is bursting with life.
Michael A. Hoffman II is the author of “Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare.”
First, there was Mel Gibson, who has forever ruined the Lethal Weapon movies by showing how closely he actually hews to Martin Riggs — only if Riggs were racist, anti-Semitic and a woman-hater. And unnaturally obsessed with blow jobs. (Maybe Riggs was all those things – it’s in the subtext.)
And now it’s Oliver Stone, beloved, iconic director of “Platoon” and “Wall Street”, who blamed the “Jewish domination of the media” for Americans demonizing Hitler and overrating the importance of the Holocaust. Let justice be done though the heavens fall, indeed!
I admit to being a little confused — why, when Ollie had the chance in “World Trade Center”, didn’t he reveal that 9/11 was all part of an Israeli/liberal-Jew conspiracy? Missed opportunity.
But why do our ’80s stars hate the Jews so much? If Jews run the media and Hollywood (and the banks), shouldn’t the likes of Gibson and Stone simply say “thank you,” and be on their way?
What’s next? Is Tom Cruise going to turn out to be anti-Semitic also? Oh, wait…
“The Holocaust myth is now being challenged mightily by the movie ‘The Passion of the Christ.’ The Jews (and we do not speak of all Jews, but of many influential Jews such as Abe Foxman and the ADL, Rabbi Schmuley Boteach and Rabbi Marvin Hier of the Simon Wiesenthal Museum, and those who have control of the media) had almost succeeded in blotting out the name of Jesus from the consciousness of the people. The public had been carefully programmed through a relentless round of movies, documentaries and books, so as to have the guilt of the Holocaust constantly in mind. ‘Schindler’s List’ and the abominable book “Hitler’s Pope” in so demeaning and desecrating Pius XII’s good name, are perfect examples of this. They had turned the tables on us. Rather than the Jews being reputedly responsible for the death of Jesus Christ, we now had Christians, especially the Roman Catholic Church, bearing the guilt for the Holocaust.
“But with one fell swoop, this marvelous movie struck a nearly fatal blow to their carefully executed plan of convincing the world that the Holocaust is the pivotal event, the defining moment in human history, thus displacing the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ from that exalted position. This is the real explanation for their rage against Christ, and against this movie. They are afraid that Christians will begin to realize once again that the true Holocaust, the one perfect and acceptable sacrifice to God our Father, took place two thousand years ago on Calvary’s hill, when Jesus Christ shed His Precious Blood for the sins of the world. All human beings, whether Jews or Gentiles, of every place and of every time, must go to the foot of the Cross of Jesus and acknowledge Him as the Messiah, if they are to be saved.
“The Holocaust myth and the Sacrifice of Christ on Calvary are unalterably opposed to one another. If the Sacrifice of Christ on the Cross is the one perfect Sacrifice acceptable to God, the true Holocaust, and the one defining moment in human history, the Jewish Holocaust cannot be the unique event they claim it to be. It was a terrible atrocity, a great human tragedy, but not a perfect sacrifice offered to God; it was not redemptive; it cannot save anyone; it was not a holocaust, certainly not The Holocaust.
“But even the Vatican II church cooperates, resulting in its own demolition. John Paul II has apologized to the Jews for the sins of Christians against them, and has absolved them from the necessity of believing in Jesus Christ. Much was made of his “historic” trip to Jerusalem where his visit to the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial Museum was celebrated by the media. ‘The awful truth is this–that John Paul II and the New Vatican accept the myth of the Holocaust, thus denying the uniqueness and efficacy of the Sacrifice of Christ on Calvary, and of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.'”

Radar reports that Mel Gibson allegedly screamed that he wanted the Jewish blood of one of his enemies all over his hands. From Radar:
The anti-Semitic slur was allegedly made by Mel in reference to a high-profile Hollywood figure who is Jewish and who Mel believed had “publicly humiliated” him.
Gibson hired individuals to place this person under surveillance, Oksana told authorities.
“Oksana says Mel told her, ‘I want Jew blood on my hands,’ and said he wanted the person taken to the desert, stripped naked, knee capped and left in the heat,” a source close to one of the investigations involving Mel told RadarOnline.com exclusively.
Gibson never followed through with his threats.
The ‘Protector Collection’ features a serpent as Jolie is said to consider the reptile as an iconic guardian and protector of her family.
In Egyptian history, the snake occupies a primary role with the Nile cobra adorning the crown of the pharaoh in ancient times. It was worshipped as one of the gods and was also used for sinister purposes: murder of an adversary and ritual suicide.
In Christianity and Judaism, the snake makes its infamous appearance in the first book (Genesis 3:1) of the Bible when a serpent appears before the first couple Adam and Eve as an agent of the devil and tempts them with the forbidden fruit from the Tree of Knowledge. The snake returns in Exodus when Moses, as a sign of God’s power, turns his staff into a snake and when Moses made the Nehushtan, a bronze snake on a pole that when looked at cured the people of bites from the snakes that plagued them in the desert. The serpent makes its final appearance symbolizing Satan in the Book of Revelation:”And he laid hold on the dragon the old serpent, which is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.”
The Ouroboros is a symbol that is associated with many different religions and customs, and is also claimed to be related to Alchemy. The Ouroboros or Oroboros is a snake eating its own tail in a clock-wise direction (from the head to the tail) in the shape of a circle, representing manifestation of one’s own life and rebirth, leading to immortality.
In Neo-Paganism and Wicca, the snake is seen as a symbol of wisdom and knowledge.

The emotional actor is brought to tears as he meets with Israelis.
Jon Voight(Israel)—Haaretz News reports that Academy Award winning actor Jon Voight is currently in Israel to express his fervent support for the Jewish people during Israel’s 60th anniversary celebrations.
According to the report, on Tuesday, the actor visited Sderot, the western Negev town that suffers regular Qassam rockets strikes from the Gaza Strip and on Monday, he met with terror victims, and welcomed a group of children brought to Israel through Chabad’s Children of Chernobyl program.
A video, available for viewing by clicking on the link below, shows an emotional Voight brought to tears by his passion for Israel.
GLENN: Are you more concerned about the economy and spending or are you more concerned about, for instance, the Middle East and Israel?
VOIGHT: Well, I’m concerned about all of that but I really, I’m really concerned about Israel. His attitude toward Israel really reveals that he knows nothing but the history of Israel and its importance to the United States. He spoke at Cairo University in a speech on June 4th and then he said there will be no dictating to other countries, you know, only forging partnerships and yet he certainly dictates to Israel to freeze all settlement activity which, you know, means no natural growth and that means strangling these towns to death, these thriving towns close to the 1949 armistice line that everybody, every negotiation over the past decade has envisioned Israel retaining. So he’s really destroying their ability to negotiate and to give and recommending that Israel gives more land away. Hasn’t he understood that every time Israel has given land in order to secure peace that all of the response has only been violence? Hasn’t he understood all of this? That Gaza has attacked Israel, they gave Gaza as a peace gesture and, you know, Hamas has used it to attack the south of Israel? It’s one wonders where he gets his information from and what his point of view is.
GLENN: John, why you’re awfully passionate about Israel. I am as well.
VOIGHT: I am indeed, yeah.
GLENN: Because there’s a lot of people that will say, geez, these people having warring for 5,000 years, why should we even get involved? Why should we even care?
VOIGHT: Well, you know, certainly they are arguably our greatest ally in the world. We depend on their intelligence. We depend, we’re very tied to them, and they are the only democracy in that part of the world. And there are other aspects as well. But when we look at, you know, what Hitler said, Hitler in Mein Kampf laid it all out, didn’t he? There are some people who read Mein Kampf. Winston Churchill said, you know, they said, well, how did you know? He said, well, I read his book.
VOIGHT: Well, we have heard Ahmadinejad and the Imam speak from Iran, wipe Israel from the geography of the land, from time. Israel is going to die they say. Aren’t we listening? Are we taking them seriously or not?
You know, it’s funny that you bring this up today because I was just meeting with the writers for television earlier this morning and I said this is where I’m headed today. And it’s that very point. I was driving in this morning and I’m hearing all of the news and I keep seeing these signposts pass. Nobody has everybody is in denial on everything.
GLENN: They are, “Oh, well, we’re going to be able to grow our way out of it. Well, we’ll have to spend some money temporarily here. Well, we can just make friends with these people and we are denying everything that people are actually telling us. Somebody said it was Gretchen Carlson from Fox News who I adore. She is going to be on later. She was on yesterday’s show and she said, you know, Obama never said he would do these things. I said, yes, he has. Yes, he has. Nobody wants to say that the man is a Marxist. Okay, so he’s not a Marxist. He’s a progressive! This is semantics.
VOIGHT: Yes, it is.
GLENN: If you go back and you read what they said. What they said they were going to do in the early 20th century which Hillary Clinton in her own campaign speech said, you know, “I’m an early 20th century American progressive.” If you read what they said they were going to do, they’re doing it right now, and I feel like I read Mein Kampf as well, and when I read Mein Kampf, I read it because I wanted to know, did the German people know. Yes! Yes, they knew. Unless they were like, “Oh, well, no, he doesn’t mean that,” which is exactly what we’re doing now. Everybody’s just saying, “Well, no, they don’t… Ahmadinejad really doesn’t mean that.” Or, “He’s really not going to actually destroy the free market system.” Yes, he is. Yes, he is.
VOIGHT: Oh, yes.
GLENN: So how do you wake people up, John?
VOIGHT: I don’t know. I’m doing my best and you’re doing your best for sure, Glenn. It really is frightening. I mean, when Obama says you don’t know if you’re hearing properly when he says that Iran is perhaps entitled to nuclear power. And after all of these statements
GLENN: Yet we’re not.
VOIGHT: We’re seeing him head down this road. And you say, well, wait, we’ll check in December and see how far it’s gotten. It’s so alarming, it’s quite it’s almost unbelievable that we’re witnessing this kind of behavior.
GLENN: John, what is your life like
VOIGHT: Pretty good.
GLENN: Because you are in you’re in the hornet’s nest. You might as well just be covered in the honey.
Daisy: Give me the Valium.
Lisa: We don’t need your daddy’s money.
Daisy: Then leave it there, just give me the fucking Valium.
(She extends her hand to Lisa and Lisa grabs her arm and pulls up the sleeve of her robe to reveal a badly-cut arm.)
Lisa: What’s this?
Daisy: (struggles to get free) Let go.
Lisa: What’s this, huh? Trying out your new silver?
Daisy: Get the fuck off me! (frees herself from Lisa’s grip and starts for the stairs)
Lisa: Less appealing for Daddy, hmm?
Daisy: Look at your own arm, asshole.
Lisa: I’m sick, Daisy, we know that, but here you are in so-called recovery, playing Betty Crocker, cut up like a goddamned Virginia Ham.
Susanna: Lisa, just stop it!
Lisa: (sits on a chair, holding her cigarette) Help me understand, Dais, ’cause I thought you didn’t do Valium. Tell me how the safety net is working for you…Tell me that you don’t take that blade and drag it across your skin and pray for the courage to press down. Tell me how your Daddy…
Susanna: (under breath) Christ.
Lisa: …helps you cope with that. Illuminate me.
Daisy: My father loves me.
Lisa: (nodding) I bet…with every inch of his manhood.
Susanna: (disgusted) Oh, God.
Daisy: I’m going to sleep now.
(Daisy walks upstairs. Lisa rocks back on chair and takes a drag on the cigarette.)
Daisy: Please be gone in the morning. You’re just jealous, Lisa, because I got better. Because I was released. Because I have a chance… at a life.
Lisa: They didn’t release you because you’re better, Daisy. They just gave up. You call this a life, hmm? Taking daddy’s money, buying your dollies and your knick-knacks, and eating his fucking chicken, fattening up like a prize fucking heifer? You changed the scenery, but not the fucking situation, and the warden makes house calls. And everybody knows… everybody knows (runs tongue across teeth) that he fucks you. But what they don’t know, is that you like it. Hmm? You like it.
Susanna: Shut the fuck up!
Lisa: But hey, man, it’s cool. It’s fine! It’s fucking fine! A man is a dick, is a man is a dick, is a chicken. Valium, speculum, whatever, hmm? Whatever. You like being Mrs. Randone. Probably all you’ve ever known.
Daisy: Have fun in Florida.
(Lisa gets up, moves to another chair, takes another drag and giggles.)
