We have been pawns playing checkers in the controlling system’s chess game, and it’s almost checkmate.
Some personal thoughts and opinions regarding my previous post covering the year 1954:
- Technology: IBM had already been producing large quantities of data processing equipment for the military, so their lame demonstration of the “possibilities of machine translation” was nothing more than a dog and pony show to mislead the American public regarding their technological capabilities. The military/intelligence complex is always at least a decade ahead of any innovations that are released for public consumption.
- Fear Porn: The promotion of nuclear testing in the news and atomic holocaust in movies is utilized to cause distraction, division, and dependence on the military-industrial complex. Many now claim that Hiroshima and Nagasaki were firebombed, not nuked. I’m no physicist, but it seems plausible to me that nuclear weapons aren’t as destructive as we’ve been led to believe, if they exist at all. http://www.renegadetribune.com/hiroshima-firebombed-not-nuked/
- Societal Manipulation: I am all for artistic freedom, but the freedom we were fed in art forms like “new realism” in film has never been organic. Most “artistic expression” appears to have been a well-plotted string of psychological manipulations promoted and pushed by the military-industrial complex to incrementally fracture and destroy the family unit, resulting in an unnatural dependence on government.
- Military Glorification: The first televised hearings involving Joseph McCarthy attacking the military was pure theater and a classic example of controlled opposition.
- Bait and Switch: Watch President Eisenhower promote fear about the Communist scourge in East Asia while the CIA overthrows democratic governments in Central America.
- Diet and Nutrition: Military personnel create and manage toxic food corporations and then convince us that we have a choice (Coke vs. Pepsi or McDonalds vs. Burger King) when in reality, it’s the same garbage with a slightly different “natural” flavor.
- Bread and Circuses: Why participate in physical activity when you can watch it on T.V. from the comfort of your Lazy Boy recliner? Just make sure to stock up on junk food, beer, and soda.
And let’s not forget the most lethal weapon in the controlling system’s arsenal…Tel-lie-vision. Once the system had a “boob tube” planted in every home, it was already game over. I mean, how else could you know about all of the people who were trying to kill you or what you should eat and drink?
And we thought we called it the “idiot box” because the shows were stupid!
(1/2/1955) The President of Panama is Assassinated
President Jose Antonio Remon was ambushed at a race track and fired upon by three assailants armed with sub-machine guns.
A lawyer, Ruben O. Miro, confessed to the crime, and in his confession, Miro claimed that he had been acting on orders from Jose Ramon Guizado, who had succeeded Remon as president. In a convenient turn of events, Guizado was released from prison in December 1957, after Miro and six other suspected perpetrators were acquitted.
(1/17/1955) USS Nautilus Put to Sea
“Underway on Nuclear Power.” Nautilus was powered by the Submarine Thermal Reactor (STR), produced for the Navy by Westinghouse Electric Corporation. Nautilus’ ship patch was designed by The Walt Disney Company.
(1/22/1955) Pentagon Announces Plan to Develop Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBM)
The first practical design for an ICBM grew out of Nazi Germany’s V-2 rocket program. Under “Projekt Amerika,” Werner von Braun intended using ICBM’s in bombing New York and other American cities. After the war, the U.S. executed “Operation Paperclip,” which brought von Braun and hundreds of other leading German scientists to the United States to develop IRBMs, ICBMs, and launchers for the U.S. Army.
As of 2016, all five of the nations with permanent seats on the United Nations Security Council have operational long-range ballistic missile systems.
(2/12/1955) President Eisenhower Sends First “Advisors” to South Vietnam
In 1954 Eisenhower promised United States support to ensure a noncommunist Vietnam. Following through on that commitment, direct U.S. aid to South Vietnam began in January 1955, and American “advisors” began arriving in February to “train” the South Vietnamese army.
(3/7/1955) Peter Pan Attracts Record Television Audience
NBC presented Peter Pan as the first full-length Broadway production on color TV. The show attracted a then-record audience of 65-million viewers, the highest ever up to that time for a single television program. Was the choice of Peter Pan as the first big television event organic in nature, or was it the beginning phase of the gender confusion agenda?
Perhaps it was just a tip of the hat by the controlling system to an admired fellow practitioner of pedophilia. Peter Pan first appeared in 1904 as a novel by J.M. Barrie.
“For all his (Barrie) preferred image of innocence, walking by the Serpentine with a rapt child hanging on each hand, friends of the boys thought Barrie creepy. There was something ‘sinister about him’, one recalled. It wasn’t so much the fear of sexual abuse that concerned them but the domination he exercised over such young and impressionable minds and personalities.”
“Four-year-old Daphne du Maurier, destined to be a writer every bit the equal of Barrie – was drawn into his make-believe world, in which she was expected to behave like a boy, following the lead of her male cousins. She adored her father with a passion that, returned by him, may have edged too close for comfort to incest. Or maybe, when she confessed to such things, she was simply making it up. With master-storytellers, you can never be quite sure. She claimed, not a little resentfully, her sexual orientation had been confused by her childhood part in Barrie’s ‘boy-cult’. He had got inside her mind, toying with her sense of self, just as he had the Llewelyn Davies boys and their mother.”
(3/20/1955) The Movie “Blackboard Jungle” Premieres
Every day in communities across the United States, children and adolescents spend the majority of their waking hours in schools that increasingly have come to resemble places of detention more than places of learning. From metal detectors to drug tests, from increased policing to all-seeing electronic surveillance, the public schools of the twenty-first century reflect a society that has become fixated on crime, security, and violence…In a strange paradox that is so American, children are considered both potential victims, vulnerable to dangers from every corner, and perpetrators of great violence and mayhem, demanding strict, preventive discipline.
Was this film a realistic portrayal of a current situation, or was it used by its military creators (Evan Hunter and Richard Brooks, see 1954) to push an agenda? At the time, the Washington Post slammed the film as “so sensationalized as to negate any laudable purpose its supporters claim…But to pile these things (vandalism, thuggery, murder) and more into a few months within one classroom surely does not show “courage” on the part of the moviemakers. To anyone with eyes open, this approach simply is one more dodge at making a box office buck.” Or weakening the structure of the family unit.
(4/12/1955) The Salk Polio Vaccine Receives Full Approval by the FDA
Before receiving “Full Approval”:
- In 1952 Salk began testing the vaccine in humans, starting with children who had already been infected with the virus.
- In 1954 a massive field trial was launched in which almost two million U.S. children between the ages of six and nine “participated.”
Because of these massive trials, Salk’s vaccines needed to be produced on a large scale. Accomplishing this required the “assistance” of the pharmaceutical industry, and well-known companies like Eli Lilly and Company “agreed’ to make the vaccine.
(4/15/1955) Ray Kroc Opens First McDonald’s
(7/17/1955) Disneyland Theme Park Opens
According to Wikipedia, during World War I, McDonald’s founder Ray Kroc lied about his age and became a Red Cross ambulance driver at the age of 15 years old, unknowingly alongside Walt Disney…yeah, right.
During WWII, Disney formed the Walt Disney Training Films Unit to produce instruction films for the military and to promote the sale of war bonds. Disney also produced several “propaganda productions,” including Der Fuehrer’s Face, which won an Academy Award, and the feature film Victory Through Air Power.
Walt Disney also released an animated feature-length version of Peter Pan in 1953 (Just sayin’).
(August 27, 1955) Standard Oil Refinery Fire in Whiting, Indiana
Author John Hmurovich of the Whiting-Robertsdale Historical Society:
The year was 1955, at the height of the Cold War, and many of the people who heard the explosion thought the Russians had finally dropped the bomb. Conventional wisdom in the region was that the Russians would bomb the refineries and steel mills first to cripple the United States’ ability to build new machines of war. Several witnesses told Hmurovich and other historical society volunteers they thought it was the end of the world.
(8/1/1955) First Flight of the Lockheed U-2 Reconnaissance Aircraft
The CIA has used the aircraft for day and night, high-altitude, all-weather intelligence gathering. U-2s have taken part in post-Cold War conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq and supported several multinational NATO operations.
(9/15/1955) The Novel “Lolita” is Published
“Lolita” is notable for its controversial subject: the protagonist, a middle-aged literature professor, is obsessed with a 12-year-old girl, with whom he becomes sexually involved after he becomes her stepfather. The novel was adapted into a film by Stanley Kubrick in 1962, and another film by Adrian Lyne in 1997. It has also been adapted several times for the stage and has been the subject of two operas, two ballets, and an acclaimed Broadway musical. Many authors consider it the most significant work of the 20th century. Its assimilation into popular culture is such that the name “Lolita” has been used to imply that a young girl is sexually precocious.
(9/3/1955) Actor James Dean Dies in Automobile Accident
(10/27/1955) The Film “Rebel Without a Cause” Starring James Dean is Released
This film is about emotionally confused suburban, middle-class teenagers. It offered an alternative to “Blackboard Jungle,” which depicted delinquents in urban slum environments. The film was considered a groundbreaking attempt to portray the moral decay of American youth, critique parental style, and explore the differences and conflicts between generations.
The film was adapted from psychiatrist Robert M. Lindner’s 1944 book, “Rebel Without a Cause: The Hypnoanalysis of a Criminal Psychopath” and it was directed by Nicholas Ray. In 1941, Lindner was appointed chief of psychiatric-psychological services of the United States Public Health Service. In 1943 he was commissioned an officer of the Public Health Service with the Naval rank of lieutenant.
Nicholas Ray directed and supervised radio propaganda programs for the Office of War Information during the early years of World War II. According to Wikipedia, during the filming of “Rebel Without a Cause,” Ray engaged in a tempestuous “spiritual marriage” with Dean, and awakened the latent homosexuality of Mineo, through his role as Plato, who would become the first gay teenager to appear on film. During filming, it was rumored that Ray began a short-lived affair with Natalie Wood, who at age 16 was 27 years his junior. Dean was “killed” less than two months before the release of the film when his Porsche slammed into the passenger side of a car driven by a man named Donald Turnupseed (Turn Up Speed?). Dean’s coffin remained closed at his funeral to conceal his severe injuries. Or was he reassigned to a new project?
(12/1/1955) Rosa Parks is Arrested
In truth, while Rosa was certainly courageous, she was not the first black woman to be arrested protesting the segregated Montgomery bus system. Moreover, she gained attention primarily because she and her husband Raymond were at the center of the Montgomery activist network. They also had prominent friends among the white community who were sympathetic to the cause of civil rights, most notably progressive lawyer Clifford Durr and his wife Virginia. Rosa, Raymond, and their fellow activists in Montgomery sought circumstances to challenge the status quo. The couple were members of the Montgomery NAACP for some fifteen years before the boycott. They were ideally suited to challenge segregation statutes. Raymond worked as a barber at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, so he was “immune to job threats.” Indeed, Rosa Parks also worked as a seamstress at Maxwell for a time. She once said, “Maxwell opened my eyes up. . . . It was an alternative reality to the ugly policies of Jim Crow.” At first, Raymond had some protection against financial retaliation. Thus, he and Rosa were logical choices to take point on civil rights. https://www.usrepresented.com/2017/09/11/rosas-husband/
