Ronald Reagan, several years ago, was receiving an award, some
sort of trophy. An activist came from backstage to the podium,
grabbed Reagan's trophy, and smashed it. Then, for about 30
seconds, he and Reagan just stood there, looking at each other.
The activist stammered something like, "I'm sorry, Mr. Reagan,
but this award is for something evil." For 30 seconds the two
faced each other. At the gathering, there was an awkward
silence. It was as if all waited, wondering, "Is this to be an
assassination?" =Then=, when it was apparent no assassination
had been ordered, =then= a Secret Service agent came from nowhere
and executed a flying tackle on the activist. But that 30
seconds of awkward inaction and silence is a clue to plenty:
Secret Service had first to be sure no assassination had been
ordered from "higher up." Only then did they act, with a
dramatic and unnecessary flying tackle.
The "Great Free Market" is what we hear when thousands of workers
are "downsized." But when Yamaichi fails and Japan's economy is
in trouble, whatever happened to the "Great Free Market?"
Janet Reno, according to a poll conducted by a tabloid newspaper,
is a "vision of beauty" to Japanese males. Given a choice of any
woman in the world, 78 percent of Japanese men chose Reno as the
one woman they'd most enjoy being alone with on a desert island.
(No wonder the Japanese economy is in trouble.) Asked about this
astonishing poll while she was kayaking down the Potomac River,
Reno just guffawed. Later, in Mexico, Reno fainted. Supposedly
it was due to gallstones, but could it have been embarrassment at
leers from lustful Mexican males?
According to a new book by Webster Hubbell (*Friends In High
Places*), Hubbell was tasked with two high-priority assignments
when he took over a high-ranking position at the Justice
Department. Bill Clinton ordered Hubbell to get to the bottom of
two mysteries: (1) Who killed JFK; (2) Are UFOs real. So even
Bill Clinton, it seems, is a "conspiracy nut."
A =six-mile-wide= UFO recently was seen flying over the skies of
China. Although readers may scoff at the source of this report,
"Weekly World News" (12/2/97), such "lands in the sky" have
previously been seen over the centuries. (See the book, *New
Lands*, by Charles Fort.) The Chinese mega-UFO was described as
"a huge shimmering coil that rotated clockwise at a high rate of
speed as it rocketed through the night sky only 1000 feet or so
above the ground."
Weekly World News also reports that companies have been hiring
private undercover detectives. They masquerade as ordinary
co-workers, then one day ask, "Want to buy some marijuana?" If
you say "Yes," you are fired.
A new book by Col. Philip J. Corso (Ret.) gives his account of
the government cover-up of the 1947 crash of a "flying disk" near
Roswell, New Mexico. In *The Day After Roswell*, Corso describes
how a "national security" attitude gelled over the years into an
entrenched set of procedures for dealing with a supposed invasion
of U.S. airspace, apparently hostile. Beware that disinformation
is routinely propagated by the U.S. Establishment. Corso =may=
be a tool of that Establishment. Then again, he =may= be as he
seems, an insider now surfacing to tell what he knows. Skolnick,
Rothstein, and others have introduced me to the idea that, even
with disinformation, there is a "60/40" (or "70/30" or "80/20")
aspect to that disinformation. The concept is akin to Father
Merrin's statement regarding the demon in the movie "The
Exorcist": "The demon is a liar, but he mixes truth with his
lies." So, even if Corso's book is disinformation, a careful
reader can find truth therein.
