Mysterious deaths weaken the �left-wing media� myth

A common misconception some are led to believe is that the mainstream press has a liberal bias.

Those ascribing to the �liberal bias� myth believe the press will take any attempt to tarnish the President and other right-wingers credibility and reputations.

If this were so, surely they would�ve picked up on the suspicious suicides of people pointing fingers at our government leaders � Hunter S. Thompson, Gary Webb, Terrance Yeakey and Margie Schoedinger.

Ironically, all four lives ended before evidence could be presented calling out the political heads involved in corruption and scandals.

The night before Thompson�s death, he told his friend at the Toronto Globe he had been working on a book regarding the Sept. 11 attacks being a controlled demolition � strategically placed explosives.

He claimed �hard evidence� gathered proves the buildings were not brought down by planes and was afraid he might be �suicided.�

In our own state, former Oklahoma City Police Officer Terrance Yeakey was one of the first responders to the Murrah Building bombing on April 19, 1995.

He was working on presenting evidence to the public about the bombing being a government cover-up, but he was found dead in a field in El Reno.

The report claimed he slit both his wrist, stabbed himself in both sides of the jugular, then walked from his car a mile and a half and shot himself.

�The bullet entered the upper temple on the right side and exited below the upper jaw bone on the left side, meaning the gun would have been pointed in a downward angle - a most unlikely way for a person bent on suicide to hold a gun,� according to the Spotlight, an Internet news source.

One witness said the inside of Yeakey�s car looked like someone had slaughtered a pig.

Gary Webb, who died last December, was working on a book about the government cover-up of CIA drug smuggling in the 1980s. His findings will be highlighted in the film �American Drug War� by Alex Jones.

The clip he will use is from a special by MSNBC on the drug-smuggling featuring Webb. Following Webb�s mysterious death, no follow-up story has been made by MSNBC.

The only hole in the story noticeable on the surface was how Webb managed to shoot himself in the head twice.

Like Thompson and Yeakey, Webb�s friends and family saw no indication he was a man about to end his own life. In addition, none of them left suicide notes. In fact, Thompson, Yeakey and Webb were working on something monumental.

The most interesting death thus far is the alleged suicide Margie Shoedinger, the only woman who has accused President Bush of sexual assault.

After Shoedinger died on Sept. 22, 2003, the only news organizations to run this story were the one in her local town and the �New Nation� in London, a very small circulated paper. The story has gone virtually unnoticed, completely blacked out from the public eye.

One would assume if the media in this country hates Bush and Republicans so much, they would run more stories like these. But that is the lie being spread on television and radio � that a �liberal media� bias truly exists.

Isn�t it strange those deeply involved in the mainstream press, like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, are saying there is a liberal bias?

Most importantly, we should be asking ourselves who controls the mainstream news and what exactly constitutes �news worthy.� Last week the news organizations couldn�t stop talking about Martha Stewart and Michael Jackson.

Who cares?

�They�re gonna make it look like suicide,� Thompson told his friend at the Toronto Globe. �I know how these bastards think.�

On the Thursday, March 3 edition of "A Closer Look" radio program,
host Michael Corbin and former NYPD detective Jim Rothstein, who have
known Noreen Gosch for several years, confirmed that as late as that
morning she had refused to confirm or deny her belief that the man
known as "Jeff Gannon" is indeed her son, Johnny Gosch. Gosch was
kidnapped an espionage/sex-slavery ring at age 12 in 1982 and briefly
made visited his mother in 1997. LISTEN.

Thanks also to Mr. Corbin for covering this website's analysis of the
Gannon/Gosch situation on its March 4 program. ( LISTEN)


After WWII ended in 1945, victorious Russian and American intelligence teams began a treasure hunt throughout occupied Germany for military and scientific booty. They were looking for things like new rocket and aircraft designs, medicines, and electronics. But they were also hunting down the most precious "spoils" of all: the scientists whose work had nearly won the war for Germany. The engineers and intelligence officers of the Nazi War Machine.

The U.S. Military rounded up Nazi scientists and brought them to America. It had originally intended merely to debrief them and send them back to Germany. But when it realized the extent of the scientists knowledge and expertise, the War Department decided it would be a waste to send the scientists home. Following the discovery of flying discs (foo fighters), particle/laser beam weaponry in German military bases, the War Department decided that NASA and the CIA must control this technology, and the Nazi engineers that had worked on this technology.

There was only one problem: it was illegal. U.S. law explicitly prohibited Nazi officials from immigrating to America--and as many as three-quarters of the scientists in question had been committed Nazis.
