EARTH HOAX, NUKE HOAX ..with Edward R Murrow

People often see the world of modern conspiracy starting in the 60s with the assassination of JFK, however, what if the really big stuff began in the 50s, or even slightly earlier?

This post started for me when I came across the prologue to the 1956 movie Around the World in 80 Days. It was presented by the American broadcast journalist Edward R Murrow. Now Murrow, I later found out, was the most prominent media voice in pretty much every major political news story from World War II onwards. I'll list his most noteworthy stuff;
  • He came to prominence reporting for the CBS station during World War II. In many ways he was the voice of the war for American listeners. In fact, you'll no doubt be very familiar with his voice from old news reel clippings - he's actually the guy who coined the phrase "this is London" with his trademark emphasis on the word this.
  • In 1945 he and his colleague, Bill Shadel, were the first reporters at the Buchenwald concentration camp in Germany.
  • He produced a series of reports that helped lead to the censure of Senator Joseph McCarthy. His broadcasts essentially turned public opinion away from McCarthyism in 50s America.
  • He also reported on that other big fear of the 1950s, the development of the Hydrogen Bomb.
Quite an impressive CV.

Now Murrow was generally considered to be a liberal-leaning, forward thinker and had a reputation for honesty and integrity as a journalist. However, not everyone shared that opinion, as some of the videos I'll share further down this page will show.

Anyway, back to the prologue to Around the World. In it Murrow introduces the movie by narrating the development of man's dreams of conquering space. He shows the audience the French 1902 silent movie A Trip to the Moon by Georges Méliès, which depicts a fictional voyage to the moon. Then he shows modern, 50s era, footage of a rocket flying into space and filming our globely abode, mentioning that we now possess the power to destroy it all as well. He then finishes his piece by spinning a model globe with his hand and stating that not too long ago "learned men thought that was flat".

Obviously with my recent interest in Flat Earth I found that little bit particularly interesting :)

The link I share below shows a shortened version of this prologue complete with the flat earth line - I tried to share the entire prologue on YouTube last night but ended up with a copyright strike :/

Now I did say I was going to drop the Flat Earth hashtag in a previous blog, but it's just far too interesting to give up. I think I'll start using the term Earth Hoax instead though xD as if you now search on YouTube for Flat Earth most of the stuff you get is the shill psy-opera with its "daytime TV"-style fake smiles and general nonsense.

Now if there is something wrong with our model of the world - and that's a big IF (bigger than I can capitalise) - then I think it must have came to a climax of sorts during the 1950s, when Antarctica, the last area of earth to finally submit itself to man's vigorous investigations, was finally mapped out.

People new to the idea of questioning such things may laugh at the suggestion that Earth may not be what we think it is, however, when one looks at the wranglings over Antarctica during this period it's hard not to be at least a little suspicious of what's going on down (over?) there.
  • In early 1939 Nazi Germany explored New Swabia, a part of Antarctica.
  • Antarctica, strangely enough, was the focus of manoeuvrings during World War II.
  • Operation Highjump of course took place in 1946/47
  • The International Geophysical Year took place in 1957/58
  • And finally the Antarctic Treaty System came in 1959
In fact, the links between the Geophysical Year in Antarctica and space exploration are curiously cognate. For example, Sputnik was launched for this event, and the Van Allen radiation belts were also discovered as a consequence of it.

Returning to Edward R Murrow though we can maybe see how the propaganda to keep all this away from public eyes was played out on TV. With fake earth, fake Cold War and possibly even, as some on YouTube claim, fake nukes. A nice way of keeping us all sacred and in the dark you could say.

[As a side note I should also say that some on YouTube and elsewhere may also claim the concentration camps as more fakery to add to the list, however although I'm open to the idea that all history, even the Holocaust, may not be as it seems, I have to state that I'm deeply opposed to any form of racial hatred. I feel that really needs stating as the number of people on-line expressing racial prejudice is really quite frightening ...and also unhelpful to people looking for a truthful historical narrative. Even if the Holocaust was another hoax or "false flag" of sorts it wouldn't be any reason to point the finger at an entire group of people. Just as 9/11 being a false flag doesn't make all Americans complicit in its design.]

So anyway, here are the videos I promised to share; (Oh, and as they say on Twitter - a retweet isn't necessarily an endorsement);

This one comments on Murrow's treatment of Senator Joseph McCarthy;

This next one is McCarthy responding to Murrow;

And this final one is Murrow on the Hydrogen Bomb (it's the first 6/7 minutes you need to watch);
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2h4O5NRQzc

I found all three really fascinating.

I'll end this post with an image from the above referenced silent movie A Trip to the Moon. It shows the earth as viewed from the moon. As ever we're shown it with Africa pointing towards us - just like we always see it :) ..the power of art is really quite amazing.


...oh and on a final, final note, the star of Around the World in 80 Days, David Niven, went on to release an autobiography that sold over 5 million copies. Its title? ..The Moon's a Balloon xD
