    This looks really good. I remember when that German journalist recently came out and admitted he had been writing for the CIA for years. It was a story that should have been widely covered if there was a free press. It was covered by the alt media and blogosphere. But the MSM who are all complicit in it were remarkable quiet....

    "The Ulfkotte Effect" is having a real impact in Germany it seems:

    Germans Abandon Major News Sites in Anger Over Slanted Russia Coverage

    Triggered by reader disaffection, internet traffic has collapsed for half a dozen major German media websites

    Der Spiegel – on its way out?


    What's going on in the German media is huge. It is one of the most popular subjects on our site. The US and UK media have been hugely biased in their coverage of Russia, but German media has been far, far, worse, to the point which strains credulity.
    Now it turns out that part of the reason is CIA fiddling with German media outlets. Coming on the heels of the Snowden revelations, this has Germans seriously ticked-off. Here's the latest revelation from our correspondent in Germany.

    They call it the Ulfkotte-effect. And it's beginning to resemble an avalanche.
    Since the publication of Udo Ulfkotte's “Gekaufte Journalisten“ in September – now a #1 Amazon bestseller, in which he charges that the CIA regularly bribes top German journalists, himself included, – German readers' disaffection towards their mainstream media appears to have crossed a point of no return.
    Granted, sales of newspapers and magazines have fallen everywhere, not just in Germany. But this is different. This is a boycott that is affecting web traffic. Germans are steering clear of mainstream media websites.
    Many Germans have not been too shy to announce their intention on social networks. Some have uploaded videos calling for a boycott on YouTube. Others have created groups calling for the same on Facebook.
    The other visible result of reader disaffection has been that throughout September the number of unique visitors to six major German newspapers and magazines was falling steadily.
    In October, it simply sank.

    Yet up until early summer these same websites had been generating a large and stable amount of traffic. This is an unprecedented trend, and one that is wholly distinct from the fall in newspaper sales generally.

    Six different media sites – and they are all going down




    The Spiegel's infamous “Stoppt Putin Jetzt” July 29 cover apparently played a key role in incensing public opinion. An official readers' complaint against Der Spiegel's cover was upheld in August by the German Press Council. The latter ruled that the pictures of MH17 victims on the cover had been “instrumentalized in the context of a political statement.”

    Germany's print media was warned even before that, on April 28, when Cicero, a leading German monthly, published a column titled: “Pride after the Fall”. The captions read: “Newspapers die. The reason: they go against their readers. The current Russia reporting is an example. That's not the way to engage with readers.“
    The author, Alexander Kissler wrote: “Every quarter the newspapers sector grieves. This is when plummeting circulation figures are released. The curve travels from top left to bottom right, in fact it is not a curve anymore, but a straight line, unstoppable on its way to Zero.“
    German media was quick to go on an offensive against Russia over the Ukraine crisis, but just as quickly found itself on the defensive against its readers.
    Now, after a further worsening of circulation figures during the spring, web traffic has declined as well.
    And it still looks like just the beginning. Has the time come to print a book titled: “2019: The Last Copy of Der Spiegel?” – if the German print media will survive even until then, that is.


    From Russian Insider
    The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.

    I saw something funny the other day in some FOIA docs from CIA. A 1964 TV producer calls in to the CIA to report Commie tendencies of a guest on his show. The memo author reminds the caller that, "this agency (CIA) could not presume to influence communication media." (Operation Mockingbird began in the fifties.)
    "All that is necessary for tyranny to succeed is for good men to do nothing." (unknown)

    James Tracy: "There is sometimes an undue amount of paranoia among some conspiracy researchers that can contribute to flawed observations and analysis."

    Gary Cornwell (Dept. Chief Counsel HSCA): "A fact merely marks the point at which we have agreed to let investigation cease."

    Alan Ford: "Just because you believe it, that doesn't make it so."

    Police blamed gangster’s death on surgery — not six bullets
    http://webcache.googleusercontent.co...trip=1&vwsrc=0
    Tom Harper and Jonathan Corke Published: 24 January 2016

    POLICE ignored a suggestion that John "Goldfinger" Palmer, the murdered gangster, may have been shot.
    Palmer, 64, died in the garden of his home near Brentwood, Essex, last June. Police and ambulance staff found injuries to his chest and back but his death was blamed on complications from gall bladder surgery.
    An internal report by the East of England ambulance service, obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, reveals that paramedics found a "substantial blood trail" and "large amounts of blood" around the top of Palmer’s shirt. A student paramedic observed that the injuries were a "bit unusual and could have been gunshots". Other ambulance staff dismissed this as an "off-the-cuff remark" and the death was recorded as "non-suspicious" — until six bullet wounds were found during a post-mortem examination six days later.
    Both Essex police and the East of England ambulance service are investigating their handling of the case.
    Etc.


    Maths study shows conspiracies 'prone to unravelling' - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-35411684

    It's difficult to keep a conspiracy under wraps, scientists say, because sooner or later, one of the conspirators will blow its cover.
    A study has examined how long alleged conspiracies could "survive" before being revealed - deliberately or unwittingly - to the public at large.
    Dr David Grimes, from Oxford University, devised an equation to express this, and then applied it to four famous collusions.
    The work appears
    in Plos One journal.

    John Leonard at Progressive Press has bought the rights to Ulfkotte's suppressed book and is preparing + crowdfunding the new translation. His recent page on the book is here.

    And for anyone interested the low cost Patreon is here. Either way the book should be out later this year.

    No copies available...I guess the CIA bought them all. A used copy is selling for $2000 now.

    Default Udo Ulfkotte Books

    What a wierd coincidence---I was trying to decide whether to order a book by Udo Ulfkotte called "Verschlusssache BND".

    When I read this stuff about Ulfkotte (including his mysterious death), I changed my mind about not ordering his book. It is being shipped from Germany. The total cost including shipping is $7.68. But it would be over $40.00 on AbeBooks-US and over $130 on Amazon. If his fame is spreading, the available books online may disappear.

    If the work of Ulfkotte is being censored, then his fame may spread.

    If anybody has trouble charging your credit card (or if you have a Visa giftcard), then you use your regular credit card. But you have to call Visa and they will manually approve the transaction in real time while you are on the phone with them. Otherwise, it might be rejected because it is coming from a foreign country.

    If I get the book and it's what I want, I would make my rough Google-translate Word file available to some people. But not in a way that would violate the Copyright laws.
