AMERICANFREEPRESS.NET * BEHIND THE SCENES
By Michael Collins
.In the premiere issue of 2013 in AFP, we reflected
on the proliferation of rumors popping
up in the “alternative media” based on misinterpretation
of sloppy reporting by the mainstream
press about current events. This week we
examine other stories — deliberate forgeries — that
have taken on a life of their own, contributing
much confusion within what is known as “the
truth movement.” Many such rumors are iconic
and good people have invested much energy promoting
these legends. But legends they are.
In some cases, well-meaning folks thought that
by putting those frauds into circulation they were
helping impart greater truths people needed to
Other stories had less than benevolent motivations
behind them. They were concocted for the
very purpose of muddying the waters of serious research
into major issues of our time.
Here are some notable forgeries that bear mention:
• The spurious “interview” with Harold Wallace
Rosenthal in which he unveils “insider” secrets of
the Zionist conspiracy;
• The supposedly “secret speech” by Rabbi
Emanuel Rabinovich in Budapest in 1952;
• The long-hailed Red Symphony book attributed
to “Josef Landowksy” purportedly recounting the interrogation
of a Soviet official named Rakovsky;
• The much-quoted essay “A Racial Program for
the 20th Century” supposedly penned by “Israel
• Freemason Albert Pike’s assertion that three
world wars had been planned in advance. (While
that theme may well be true, the Pike quotation
cited so often is a fraud.);
• An excerpt from a speech by David Rockefeller
thanking the media for withholding news reports
• A much-heralded report, supposedly approved
by U.S. intelligence agencies, predicting the demise
These are only a few examples among many.
While much of what appears in these forgeries “sounds good” and meets with the approval of
many, the stories themselves just aren’t true.
There are other methods of spreading falsehoods,
disguised by other sometimes clever — but
sinister — means.
An increasingly popular scenario for inserting
disinformation into popular discourse has been
the “discovery” of hidden “diaries” and other documents
described as the musings of dead Nazis or
dead CIA officers or dead international bankers,
careful examination of which will reveal they are
fictions based on carefully crafted interweaving of
a variety of previously published material freely
accessible in other literature.
In other cases, you’ll find very real news stories
or existing documents have been altered or otherwise
misrepresented as to their meaning.
For example, one innocuous media report
about the corrupt Goldman Sachs (GS) banking
empire was slightly amended by a rumor-monger
to include the claim that GS losses had been channeled
to secret bank accounts in Israel.
While that allegation is entirely believable, the
part of the story relating to the secret accounts
was a fabrication that many unwittingly thus attributed
to a “reliable” media source.
And then there’s the legendary executive order
(EO) 11110 by JFK creating U.S. notes that was
supposedly reversed after JFK’s assassination by
Lyndon Johnson. A careful analysis proved that
the EO was real, but had nothing to do with U.S.
notes. It goes on and on and on.
Next week: the fantastic myths that the Bush,
Rockefeller and Rothschild families along with a
host of “Jewish bankers” — working together or independently —
helped finance Hitler’s rise to
