("Quid coniuratio est?")
My thanks to the many individuals who have been sending me information, both via e-mail and "snail mail".
In spite of my grandiose title ("Editor-in-chief"), I am really just one Illinoisan with a 16 megaherz 386-SX operating at 2400 baud. So, while it is indeed true that we Illinoisans are extremely amazing people (witness, for example, Skolnick of the north), I can't possibly do justice to all the fine material I have received. Add to that the fact that I wanted to give a fair amount of priority to recent interviews with Sherman Skolnick, and you can see why I cannot cover everything in Conspiracy Nation.
And yet, as I say, much of the info I have been getting has been excellent. So let me pass along my own too-brief summaries of some good material:
*** Number one is that several readers have pointed out that Mr. Skolnick was in error in a recent interview when he stated that Rupert Murdoch is the owner of the London Sunday Telegraph. I will ask Sherman about this when next I interview him, which should be by about April 28th. For the record, Skolnick has himself pointed out that he is not infallible. So, should he have made a mistake on this item, that, in itself, does not discredit him.
*** So you thought you knew all about "The dangers of fluoride". So did I, when I first received info on this from Robert J. Carton, Ph.D. (Truth About Fluoride, Inc., Box 219, Buckeystown, MD 21717 Phone/FAX 301-874-2948) Perhaps you, like me, had been trained to laughingly dismiss the fluoride warnings as the stuff of right-wing crackpots. So had I been thus trained, and so when issues of "The Fluoride Report" arrived in my mailbox, my first reaction was "Great! Now the 'Outer Limits' has made contact."
Yet I read through some of the material, including a reprint from an article in the Fall 1992 issue of Covert Action ("Fluoride: Commie Plot or Capitalist Ploy" by Joel Griffiths): "The only people who question the safety of fluoride, says the government, are quacks and lunatics -- particularly of the far-right-wing variety... The nation... has been successfully conditioned to think of fluoride solely as a benevolent substance and to dismiss as a crackpot, anyone who claims otherwise."
But fluoride "is not biodegradable; whatever comes around stays around, gradually accumulating in the environment, in the food chain, and in people's bodies, where it settles in bones and teeth."
Dr. Carton charges in an accompanying letter that excess fluoride in the food supply is behind many tooth problems. He includes photos from a 1993 National Academy of Science report, "Health Effects of Ingested Fluoride", showing the havoc wreaked on children's teeth by "dental fluorosis".
A great deal of further evidence is provided by Carton to back up his charges. What with the avalanche of news of cover-up, corruptions, et cetera that I am receiving, it truly boggles the mind how much has been going on behind the scenes. I regret that I cannot give more coverage to this fluoride fraud. Interested readers can contact Dr. Carton for further information.
*** I have been receiving copies of a newletter called "Relevance" from another CN reader. I may get around to giving the info therein more coverage in the future. For now, from their latest issue:
-+- Poster Boy -+-
Gorbachev announces something called "Gorbachev Foundation USA" will hold a "State of the World Forum" in San Francisco. "Gorbachev has evidently taken over from George Bush as official poster boy for the New World Order. In early 1993, as Bill Clinton was taking office, the Russian stated:
The future needs... international institutions acting on behalf of all. A higher institution that operates on a consensus. Such a choice would narrow the independence many believe the United States now enjoys.
Note that [Gorbachev] says many believe the United States now enjoys independence." And indeed, the cover of the March 1995 issue warns that in "...these first months of 1995, the mask of 'democracy' is coming off, as our would-be rulers begin... Dictating The Global Consensus."
-+- The Dread "Criminal Syndicalism" -+-
"This sinister offense includes anyone who knowingly...
...for, or on behalf of another, whose purpose is to advocate or promote the doctrine of criminal syndicalism, organizes or becomes a member of any assembly, group or organization which he knows is advocating or promoting the doctrine of criminal syndicalism, distributes, sells, publishes, or publicly displays any writing advocating or advertising such doctrine. [Revised Code of Montana]
Sounds like Red China, no? Over there, they have the dread crime of "hooliganism". What will be next? We've already had red scares, witch hunts, "drug wars", and now this -- "criminal syndicalism". These guys must stay awake nights, dreaming up this stuff. Coming soon: "conspiracy mongerers". Stay tuned.
I encourage distribution of "Conspiracy Nation."
