In testimony delivered on November 30, 1999 during the trial, "King Family v. Loyd Jowers and Other Unknown Co-conspirators" (aka The Martin Luther King Assassination Conspiracy Trial), co-publisher of Covert Action Quarterly, William Schaap reveals the history of US Government Approved propaganda and disinformation beginning in WWI, accelerating in WWII, going into full-swing during the Cold War.

This is original trial footage never before available to the public, now available to the public courtesy of the plaintiff's lawyer, Dr. William F. Pepper. A history of the trial in book form will soon be available in paperback form.

Schaap's testimony is in 8 parts;

2. William Schaap is a great man. Thank you, reprehensor!
The guy's Covert Action Information Bulleting and Covert Action Quarterly are a big reason we have a handle on the BFEE.

I was trying to find a link to their archives. Each of the links I have retun this:

3.  I mean, after all, "conspiracy" just
Edited on Sun Mar-09-08 12:16 AM by seemslikeadream
I mean, after all, "conspiracy" just


means, you know, more than one person being


involved in something. And if you stop and


think about it, almost everything significant


that happens anywhere involves more than one


person. Yet here there is a -- not a myth


really, but there's just an underlying


assumption that most things are not


conspiracies. And when you have that, it


enables a government which has a propaganda


program, has a disinformation program, to be


relatively successful in -- in having its


disinformation accepted.


The other reason why it -- why it


works even though as we -- as we know,


somewhere there are people who know it's not


true. Somewhere they know you're lying about


something. But another reason it works is


that disinformation is very, very effective


over time. The longer that you, whoever you


are, can control the spin on a story, the


more that spin becomes accepted as the

(901) 529-1999

1316




absolute truth. And in this country the


government has a great deal of power and


influence over that spin.


Q. Why is it so effective over time?


A. Well, this is an area where I had to


consult with other experts because it turns


out really to be a neurological function.


And that was first explained to me by a -- a


professor at Harvard Medical School. And it


has to do with the way the human brain


remembers things, the way we learn things,


the way we create patterns and associations


and reinforce -- well, I don't know how


you -- it sort of like channels in the brain


when certain things trigger certain


collateral thoughts.


And when you associate one thing


with another over time, just the mention of


the one brings the association of the other.


What this will sometimes mean is that even


when something is later exposed as a lie, if


it was accepted as a truth for a long time,


the exposure of it as a lie is not believed.


It's in one ear and out the other.

4. Bookmarked it --- but am quite familiar with Pepper and investigation . . .
and the jury verdict - "conspiracy" --- and the total lack of its being picked up by our "free press" . . . !!!
