Is Murdoch the Bald One on the Left?
No, Mr. Murdoch, We are the Ones Who Have Been Humbled
By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor
Murdoch seems to have his “ducks in a row,” the “fall guys” are falling, the press is showing the appropriate sympathy for a poor old man betrayed by bad employees. Politicians in the US are lining up behind Murdoch, the curtain of silence, of course many of them have been on his payroll in one way or another, more of his “creatures,” the army of “living dead” that feed on all of us.
Of Murdoch’s “assets,” his most lethal “stinger” has been Julian Assange and Wikileaks. Their secret love affair is subject to continual obfuscations and denials though they are the political sweetheart team of all time, a veritable “Dr. Evil and MiniMe” of journalism.
From the Guardian, a Julian Assange “love tap” threat against Murdoch, his secret patron:
Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, claimed today (July 20, 2010) he was in possession of “insurance” files on Rupert Murdoch and his global media company, News Corporation.
Assange also claimed that WikiLeaks holds more than 500 confidential US diplomatic cables on one broadcasting organisation.
Speaking to journalist John Pilger for an interview to be published tomorrow in the latest edition of the New Statesman, Assange said: “There are 504 US embassy cables on one broadcasting organisation and there are cables on Murdoch and News Corp.”
Pilger, as with Assange, another Murdoch asset, can be seen peddling war on Iran, a Murdoch/Assange/Israel/Neocon project now seemingly slipping between their fingers. The video “evidence” is presented below. Runtime 1 hour 48 minutes…background for when you have time.

AUSSIE “PEACENIKS”…DRUMBEAT FOR WAR ON IRAN
STOPPED JUST SHORT OF HANDING OUT WEAPONS…
Remember the old Hitler joke, “We want peace…a piece of Poland, a piece of France…”
To some Australians, peace has a different meaning than to the rest of us. When you get some folks together, Australia’s powerful Israel lobby, the “old line” Marxists, and the America haters, reality goes right out the window. If this represents “peace activists,” war as a business, war as a way of life, endless war is under very little threat.
The video below is recommended for only the strong of stomach or for the French who find that special “Jerry Lewis” humor in absurdity.
The theatrics are clear, carefully timed and have specific purposes:
Resurrecting Wikileaks, long discredited as pro-Israel, supporting war on Iran and controlled by the New York Times and other..”Israel sensitive” news organizations. Wikileaks is, at best, Israeli propaganda and, at worst, a Mossad psy-op
Coordinating with Alan Dershowitz’s call for an immediate attack on Iran to destroy her nuclear facilities (and much of Asia). (Dershowitz is Julian Assange’s legal advisor)
The tone is unmistakeable, pure hate for America. The problem isn’t opposition to America’s failed policies, its the purposeful use of obfuscation to cover the root of those policies.
Murdoch is working, is spending and spending to break the connections that will break him, connections to his Jewish background, connections to Israeli intelligence and spying activities, connections to political bribery in a dozen countries, connections to an agenda that looks, more and more, like war crimes than scandal mongering. One connection that is protected with the same vigor as his high level ties to Israel is Murdoch’s “man behind the scenes” role in managing Julian Assange and Wikileaks.
Today, Australian Prime Minister Gillard called for investigations paralleling those in Britain. Yesterday, she was marching to Rupert Murdoch’s tune. She drew criticism from the masters at News Corp who are still able to “sting” in Australia.
Today, Prime Minister Cameron is explaining to parliament why he employed a criminal as one of his highest advisors. His explanation will be no more meaningful than the apology Britain received for decades of base deception and more, so much more. Cameron is Murdoch’s creature.
The US says it has its own plans but no one believes it, America is too far gone. It has no will of its own, not anymore. When the “Fox News” can of worms is opened, it can never be closed, a decade of rigged elections, millions in bribes, perhaps even ties to the Bush insiders who helped plan 9/11 and the subsequent coverup might surface. Fox News, the “brand” Americans know Murdoch by is more than simply conspiracy theories and racial hate in the form of news. That’s simply the ugly surface.

Beloved Philanthropist Dame Elisabeth Murdoch with Rabbi Chaim Herzog
There will be no investigation of any consequence in the U.S.
But can we blame Rupert Murdoch, the mystery-man claiming to be the son of an impoverished Australian “something or other” and a mother “hard wired” to the biggest banking houses of Europe.
Murdoch doesn’t pretend to be a “born again” PT Barnum, not hardly. His public persona is very much that of the villain and power mad tyrant.
Rupert, for some reason, told an Israeli audience presenting him a humanitarian award in 2009 that he was not Jewish. So I guess this is Father McDuffy here paying his mother a visit in a Rabbi costume as a joke?
Why the deception? Dame Elisabeth is revered from one end of Australia to the other for her many years of philanthropy to numerous institutions there. Why publicly deny his mother legacy?
Eye of Newt…
Murdoch kept no secrets, not many at least. He started by pouring millions into politics. There it is legal, somewhat at least. Laundering bribes through book deals like the one he had with Newt Gingrich, is legal, somewhat. Congress spent decades installing the needed laxity that allows special interest money to move straight into tax free retirement accounts. Gingrich didn’t invent the system, he just plays it better than anyone else.
Gingrich managed to survive an ethics investigation though his obvious lack of character has left him nonviable, even in American politics.
There are dozens, perhaps hundreds of ways to turn money into power, especially in Washington, home of not just congress but the FBI, CIA, Pentagon and a hundred other shadowy organizations filled with petty bureaucrats feeding on the American taxpayers. They can write imaginary books, advise publications, go on radio or TV and mumble unintelligibly.
Gingrich is Murdoch’s “thing” his creature. Millions have gone to Gingrich through Murdoch and the reciprocation has been epic, paid for by the lives of thousands of Americans, more around the world, paid for in, not only blood but history, paid for by selling out America’s future:
In 1994, Gingrich’s wife, Marianne, was hired by the Israel Export Development Company. This was while her husband, Congressman Newt Gingrich had just announced support for that company’s free trade zone in Israel. Gingrich had already established himself as “fair game” after a series of ethics and IRS investigations involving the GOPAC organization and its questionable financial practices. Sources:
(“Gingrich Aided Export Firm That Employed His Wife”, NY Times News Service, San Francisco Chronicle, February 7, 1995 pA7)
(“Gingrich, Critic of ‘Business as Usual,’ Helps Out Special Interests Like ‘Any Member of Congress’”, Phil Kuntz, Wall Street Journal, April 3, 1995 pA16)
Both articles, exposing the Gingrich/Israel connection were in the Wall Street Journal, a newspaper later purchased by Murdoch, a paper unlikely to carry such as story ever again.
Soon afterward, Newt was called on to aid Murdoch in an FCC complaint made by NBC. They contended that foreign ownership of Fox, Murdoch was not an American, was illegal. Murdoch then gave Gingrich $4.5 million through his publishing company, Harper Collins, to write a book. Murdoch had offered similar deals to Margaret Thatcher and other politicians where Murdoch had regulatory problems. This time, when Newt was found to be meeting with Murdoch’s lobbyists, it all blew up in his face and he was forced to give the money back.
When it came down to “splainin’ time,” Newt and Murdoch denied it all, then it came out that they met secretly on a park bench. Then they claimed Murdoch’s agent, Lynn Chu and Gingrich’s “associate” Jeff Eisenach had cut the deal and forgot to tell them about it. Rupert Murdoch got to keep Fox News and the Neocons gained control of content, making Fox the unofficial voice of Israel, the Republican Party and the military/industrial complex.
Thus began the Gingrich/Murdoch partnership which continues to this day. Sources:

With the new Supreme Court ruling making unlimited corporate contributions acceptable, in reality, of course, legalizing bribery of public officials on an unprecedented scale as a form of “free speech” (money talks), Murdoch has ramped up his efforts, openly buying politicians. Murdoch money may have purchased, during our last congressional election, 125 seats. With 480 members of congress “sworn” to support Israel, right or wrong, no matter the cost to the United States, is this same list also Murdoch’s list? How many are owned, borrowed or rented, maybe blackmailed? Do they trade like baseball cards, do they spoil if not refrigerated after opening?
The court that “elected” Bush based on “equal protection” allowed corporations feudal rights in America under “freedom of speech.” What better nation could Murdoch put under his greasy thumb.
Whatever has been done, is done, half of Washington is on a hidden payroll of some special interest group, invariably one filled with bad intentions for the United States, and uncovering the real “Murdoch” may be the key toward breaking this process down and beginning to reassert American influence in Washington.
He has been caught. Now he fights to break the “connections.” Murdoch isn’t “Murdoch,” he is a conspiracy within conspiracies, he is political parties, he is a law onto himself, he is, to the weak and fearful, the voice and presence of the creator of the universe himself.
He has chosen to “rule in hell,” and rule he does. As for “hell,” he brought it with him in his bag of tricks.
What was called “hacking,” really “spying,” has turned out to be a major national security scandal in Britain. This week, the head of Scotland Yard resigned because of bribery issues as did their chief of counter-terrorism. This sure as hell doesn’t sound much like the usual naughty sex and celeb gossip the newsies are trying to color this as. Is someone ever going to ask why the head of Scotland Yard’s counter-terrorism unit got burned for dealings with a simple smut publisher? We are supposed to accept that, and put our heads back into the sand?
