STAR WAR STARS  Review: Carrie Fisher’s Last Postcard from the Edge: Late Star …
 12/10/17    ROCK STARS MURDERED   Joining Richard Syrett in the first half of Coast to Coast, author and researcher John Potash detailed how a group of opium-trafficking families came to form an American oligarchy and eventually achieved global dominance as they directed the CIA in operations such as MK-Ultra to push LSD and other drugs on leftist leaders and left-leaning populations at home and abroad. Potash began with an examination of the John Lennon assassination, saying that the accused killer, Mark David Chapman, had been trained by CIA handlers to learn how to shoot a gun accurately, and had been a patient at a mental health facility known to have direct Agency connections. He also claimed that the doorman at the building where Lennon was killed was a CIA operative who had been involved with the Watergate break-in as well as the Bay Of Pigs invasion. Potash and Richard drew parallels between the Lennon and RFK assassinations, such as the evidence of possible mind control and second shooters.
Potash said that the CIA sent a raft of agents and “a ton of LSD” to the UK in 1965 in order to popularize the drug amongst the pop culture and especially the artists and musicians at the time. He believes that the drug did not open up perceptions, but instead “generally made people less competent” and less likely able to promote left wing causes effectively. He also said that there is strong evidence that Jimi Hendrix was murdered when he fired his manager who was a British secret agent and that Rolling Stones founding member Brian Jones was drowned in his swimming pool when intel agents learned he was openly turning away from psychedelic drugs.

He was 83.  The diminutive and charismatic Manson orchestrated a wave of violence in August 1969 that took the lives of seven people, spawned headlines worldwide and landed him and his “Manson Family” of followers in prison for most of the remainder of their lives. Manson served nine life terms in California prisons and was denied parole 12 times.  His notoriety, boosted by popular books and films, made him a cult figure to those fascinated by his dark apocalyptic visions.  Read more …

‘Elvis Death Hoax’ Hits 40:

August 16th marked the 40th anniversary of legendary music icon Elvis Presley’s passing and, ironically, the birth of a truly odd conspiracy theory suggesting that the King had faked his death. It may surprise some people to learn that theories suggesting an Elvis death hoax actually began circulating almost as soon as he had passed away. A little known book titled “Elvis: Dead or Alive?” was published a mere month after the singer had died in 1977. In the intervening years, the book has taken on an almost legendary status in that it is incredibly hard to find and very few people have actually seen it. Find out more here.

07/15/17 On Coast To Coast In The Second Half:  On the High Plains of Texas, Johnny Frank Garrett, a 17-year-old mentally-challenged boy, was arrested, convicted, and ultimately executed for the 1981 Halloween night rape, mutilation, and murder of a nun while she slept in her room at the Convent. Garrett claimed his innocence from the time of his arrest until his dying breath. Sixteen years after Garrett’s execution new evidence has emerged proving they executed the wrong man. During the latter half of the program, filmmaker Jesse Quackenbush spoke about Garrett’s story as chronicled in his new documentary.
Garrett had the IQ of an 8-year-old, grew up in poverty, and was physically and sexually abused by various men that came into his mother’s life, Quackenbush explained. He lived a block away from the crime scene, and the system was gamed against him from the beginning, he added. “It’s almost as though it was all being set up to arrest this kid,” Quackenbush said, noting Garrett also had an incompetent court-appointed attorney.
Hair samples found at the scene belonged to someone of African American heritage, not Garrett, and the most important evidence, the semen sample, was mysteriously lost. Quackenbush is convinced this missing evidence could have exonerated Garrett. He suggested the murder of Sister Tadea Benz was committed by violent Cuban refugees (part of the Mariel boatlift), as was a similar murder months earlier. “[Narnie Box Bryson] was raped, mutilated, and left in a crucifix position in exactly the way [Benz] was found,” he reported. Quackenbush also spoke about a curse Garrett placed on those involved in his wrongful conviction and execution.

Buddy Holly: Rave On BBC Documentary 2017 

05/12/17  He was lanky, he wore glasses and he sang as if permanently battling hiccups. Aesthetically, Buddy Holly might have been the most unlikely looking rock ‘n’ roll star of the 1950s. But he was, after Elvis Presley, unquestionably the most influential. BBC HAS PULLED THIS VIDEO https://youtu.be/B1P_GSAYULE

Gandalf notes:  In this video Don McLean mentions he was rolling newspapers for his route the day Buddy’s death hit the headlines. A paper route is the only job Don has ever had in his entire life. On that day I too was rolling newspapers for my route, while carrying for the Avalanche Journal. I took the news about as hard as Don did in that early morning, tears and all. The first time I ever heard Don’s song on the LP American Pie, I thought to myself, this sounds like a chapter out of my life. But what is stranger yet, I would be the first to play McLean’s song here in Lubbock , Texas while doing overnights on KLBK 1340. It was an open format and I played what ever I wanted to play. To hear McLean now today, talk about The Day the Music Died – Wikipedia , that brought to me a deeper clarity and understanding of the emotional tide that pulled us under by re-living those events.   Nothing could change what the devil had done. Don McLean was right about that.

11/16/16  PROJECT PAPERCLIP  When Gandalf returned to the United States after a tour in Munich, Germany with his dad during the “Occupation”,  he also arrived with Project Paperclip in 1948. Today we learn this from our friends at Coast to Coast AM.  Today in Strangeness: November 16th stands as a key date for a pair of staples in the world of conspiracy theory. On this date in 1914, the Federal Reserve opened its doors as the quasi-national bank in the United States, much to the chagrin of many who saw it as a dangerous consolidation of power. Thirty-one years later, in 1945, Project Paperclip saw the United States “import” 88 German scientists to assist in rocket development. Many in the parapolitical research community point to this dubious event as the start of an infiltration of America by darker forces.

   By Gandalf’s Staff  10/31/16 UPDATED THREAT: Iran Sending Elite Fighters Into USA,  The first time Iran took Americans hostage was in November of 1979,  it initiated the Iran hostage crisis, Richard Griffing and Gandalf were working for KLLL radio in the news department. Revolutionaries, in reflection are part of a great American tradition, had overtaken the US Embasey in Iran.  (11/3/16 Iranians bask in anti-American feeling on embassy takeover anniversary…) It was then that we called the Embassy in Iran while the occupation was taking place and one of the students (Muslim Student Followers of the Imam’s Line) answered the main office phone. We requested to speak to the person in charge. They then put us on hold. Richard (news director) could not hang up that phone to save his soul. He was waiting for the interview and scoop of the year. He held on to that phone for hours, all the while chain smoking cigarettes like he was a freight train from Hades. Later on our station manager, one of the best radio men Gandalf has ever had the pleasure to work for, John Frankhouser, was more than a little upset the day he got the phone bill. 
     It just also so happened at that time the Shaw of Iran’s son was living here in Lubbock and going to flight school at Reese Air Force Base.  6 things you didn’t know about the Iran hostage crisis    It was not long after that memorable series of coincidences and events that Chris Alexander the news director at KAMC 28 and KLBK 13 and Gandalf uncovered a CIA Iran-Contra operating here in Lubbock, Texas.  The Contras, Cocaine, and U.S. Covert Operations  We had discovered that the agent was selling large quantities of cocaine as part of a covert CIA operation. That by a strange chain of events, the secret agent was busted in Lubbock, Texas having sold a kilo to a couple of clueless narcs. These DEA agents moved the “buy” to Lubbock because they knew that this city’s juries indeed were gullible, that they leaned in favor of the prosecution, believing everything law enforcement says on the stand under oath, and that Lubbock juries had the tendency to give long jail time; all of which is at the tax payers expense. The joke is on we the people throughout this entire affair.  This time however, their strategic assumption and positioning in this operational alignment bit them on the rear. As fate would have it, the worm had turned.  Just as Chris Alexander and Gandalf teamed up to seek the truth and justice, serving in the public interest. The Contra had been placed by DEA in the county jail and that is where Chris and Gandalf discovered him. That agent was later released by the Lubbock sheriff Sonny Keesee and was never to be seen again. On his release the TV stations filed a FOIA request.
     The CIA, it was learned by Gandalf, had been trading drugs for guns and cash.  The funds and guns were used in Central America, killing many, in the guerrilla wars of El Salvador and Nicaragua. Other funds were perhaps applied to this covert operation from the restricted weapons that were sold to Iran, using Israel as the intermediary in part of a ransom deal for 7 American hostages…arms embargo  This all went down in Ronald Reagan’s second term. According to a FOIA document  which was in the form of a letter that we had received, this weapons and drugs covert operation was under the direction of vice- president George Bush Sr. Gandalf obtained and read that letter, it was heavily redacted and signed by Bush.  CIA involvement in Contra cocaine trafficking

Police: Christina Grimmie killer at show just to attack her
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – A gunman who shot and killed a singer who rose to fame after appearing on “The Voice” traveled to Orlando from another Florida city specifically to attack her and then fatally shot himself, authorities said Saturday. Orlando Police Chief John Mina said at a news conference that the suspect, identified as 27-year-old Kevin Loibl of St. Petersburg, Florida, didn’t appear to know Christina Grimmie personally. Grimmie was shot to death after giving a concert in Orlando on Friday night. She died early Saturday. “She was doing a meet-and-greet, just signing autographs and selling merchandise. This white male approached her and opened fire, striking her,” Mina said.

Nazis and how it really is in the USA
Government Whistleblowers:
COAST TO COAST  10/19/15  On Sunday night’s program, George Knapp was joined by Academy Award nominated director James Spione, who discussed his film Silenced , which deals with Washington’s increasingly draconian response to whistleblowers, and the devastating personal toll on those who’ve questioned official national security policy. Two of the three whistleblowers highlighted in the film, John Kiriakou and Thomas Drake, later joined the program to share their experiences and reflect on how their lives were affected once they found themselves in the cross-hairs of a vindictive federal government
Spione observed that the climate of fear and security that has enveloped the United States since 9/11 has given way to a situation where whistleblowers are “not just persecuted, they’re prosecuted to an unprecedented degree.” Compounding this troubling issue, he said, is that the whistleblowers who seem to draw the most vociferous response of the government do so because they reveal information which challenges official policy or exposes criminality. He also noted that prosecution of whistleblowers under the Espionage Act has increased significantly under the Obama administration, which has invoked the law “more times that all other administrations combined in the last 100 years.” Ironically, Spione mused, this tenacious approach has led to new whistleblowers taking extreme measures to release information, such as in the case of Edward Snowden, who fled the country in order to be heard.   Teen Claims He Hacked CIA Director’s Email  During the next 90 minutes, former CIA counterterrorism officer John Kiriakou detailed his harrowing experience being prosecuted as a whistleblower. He explained that the ordeal began after he appeared on ABC News and revealed that the CIA not only had a torture program but that it was sanctioned by the president. This, he said, led to intense scrutiny by the government that culminated with him being charged with multiple felonies which would have sent him to prison for decades. Despite a deep desire to fight these charges in court, Kiriakou lamented that the government strategy in these instances is to overwhelm defendants with a massive amount of charges in the hopes of obtaining a plea deal. As such, he ultimately opted to accept such a deal for lesser charges in order to spare his family from the crippling debt which would arise from a lengthy court battle.
In the final 90 minutes of the program, former NSA official Thomas Drake reflected on his battle with the government after he spoke out about the agency’s illegal spying program. Drake lambasted critics who say that whistleblowers should simply use official channels to report wrongdoing, stressing that he attempted this tactic numerous times only to receive no response. Eventually, after speaking with the media about his concerns, he was charged with ten felonies under the Espionage Act, saw himself portrayed as a traitor by the press, and left with no means of employment. He speculated, since his case occurred in 2010 and predated high profile whistleblowers like Kiriakou, Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning, that the immense government response to his actions was aimed at making an example of him and creating a chilling effect to dissuade others from speaking out about institutionalized wrongdoing that they had witnessed.  More »

C2C Host: George Noory
Guests: John L. Casey,

In the first half, former national space policy advisor to the White House and Congress as well as President of the Space and Science Research Corporation (SSRC), John L. Casey , spoke about his discovery of a solar cycle that is now reversing from its global warming phase to that of dangerous global cooling for the next thirty years or more. Occurring every 206 years, the sun has begun a period of solar hibernation in which it cuts back on its energy output and ends up making the Earth very cold, he asserted. This cold phase, when it begins in earnest, happens relatively fast, he added.

During this transition period from a warm to cold cycle, we’ll see more extreme weather, Casey noted. According to his research, there’s a high probability of a catastrophic earthquake on the West Coast, as well as along the New Madrid fault, and possibly even in the South Carolina fault zone. These quakes, as well as devastating volcanoes, are associated with the low point of the cooling cycle which occurs during the years 2017 -2038, he cited. Instead of the focus on global warming, he believes the US government should be doing more to get people prepared for major catastrophic quakes.

OJAI, Calif. — On a recent Sunday morning the sidewalk in front of Porch Gallery Ojai .. Hippy Hideaway …
Author, rock journalist, and paranormal researcher, Susan Masino , discussed the ups, downs, and fantastic stories of the multifaceted rock band AC/DC. She outlined the band’s roots in Australia, their rise to fame in the 1970s, their enormous staying power over the decades, and the darker side of their history. Brothers Angus and Malcolm Young have been in the group since the beginning, and their older brother George, who was a member of the popular 1960s band, the Easybeats, produced their first six albums.
AC/DC was rocked with tragedy when lead singer Bon Scott died in 1980 from alcohol poisoning, just after their huge success with their hit album Highway to Hell . But the band was able to eventually deal with the loss, and replaced Scott with a new singer, Brian Johnson, Masino recalled. She also detailed how when their song “Nightprowler” came out, serial killer Richard Ramirez, known as the “Night Stalker,” claimed this song spoke to him directly, though the band was never into Satanic worship. She talked about how Angus Young experimented with different looks and costumes before settling on his “school boy” uniform which he still wears for performances (the band is currently on tour in Europe), as well as how Malcolm Young retired from the group in 2014, as he suffers from dementia.

Essentially, we’ve become a nation of suspects, and the citizenry has very little recourse against any kind of action by the police, he said. By “police” he includes various kinds of law enforcement such as Homeland Security and FBI agents, who have SWAT teams, and use hollow point bullets (which explode on contact). 
The current US government is not what the Founding Fathers had in mind– it’s a business or corporate concern, Whitehead continued, and the expansion of the Dept. of Homeland Security combined with the NSA could really be considered the new 4th branch of the government. This new branch of government is sending out a signal that they can come after their adversaries– “if you step out of line, we’re going to know everything you do, we can arrest you in the middle of the night,” and you have no privacy, he outlined. The Patriot Act, which eviscerated the Constitution, has authorized military equipment like grenade launchers, tanks, and assault rifles to be given to local police departments, essentially creating a “standing army” which George Washington warned against, he stated.

C2C Radio:   Long has Gandalf professed, we are being conquered by Nazi fascists and are living in a fascist regime. That all is a lie and an illusion. A great falsehood perpetrated upon we the people. Hoodwinked. And here is a man that seems to have uncovered the proof. Eisenhower, warned every damn one of us. My first hint that this might be our fate was when I returned from Germany in 1948 during Operation Paperclip . Gandalf’s Historical Notes: FLASHBACK: How President Eisenhower solved border crisis — with mass deportations…         On C@C 11/09/14  The Nazi Diaspora – Shows Guest host Jimmy Church (email) was joined by author Peter Levenda for a discussion on the Nazi diaspora which occurred following WWII and how it connects to the modern challenge of global terrorism. He explained that, as WWII was coming to a close, high ranking Nazis secretly moved vast amounts of money and key personnel out of Germany and into locations all over the world. The goal of this plan, Levenda said, was to create an underground network of Nazis who would ensure that their ideology would survive the fall of the Third Reich and, eventually, use their resources to influence other nations which were unaware of this clandestine cabal. “We have this idea, because Germany lost the war, the Nazi Party disappeared,” Levenda mused, “and nothing could be further from the truth.”                             October 28, 2014 Coast Insider Audio Fascism &Conspiracies: Appearing in the first half of Monday’s show, author, investigative journalist, and online editor Alex Constantine spoke about his work uncovering world fascism, political corruption, organized crime, and related conspiracies. He’s made it his life’s work to reveal hidden information, as the American public is distracted from following deep politics, media coverage is often superficial, and up to 1/3 of the CIA’s budget goes into propaganda, he noted. Constantine spoke about Mae Brussell, a trailblazing researcher who inspired his own work. Brussell shed light on CIA recruitment of Nazis after WW II, their role in political assassinations, and how post-WW II politics played out. She was also the first researcher to deconstruct the assassination of John Kennedy, connecting players from that event to Nixon’s Watergate crimes, he detailed. Constantine also talked about a conspiracy to kill John Lennon, noting that the three psychiatrists assigned to examine Mark David Chapman all came out of the CIA’s MK-ULTRA plan, one of whom was involved in a ‘Manchurian Candidate’ project, and that the voices that Chapman was hearing in his head were likely part of a mind control program. Regarding fascism, it came about from the rise of the robber barons in the early 20th century, and is really rooted in big business, he said. Numerous corporations did business with the Nazis, and continued to do so during the war, and to profit from it, Constantine reported.

Know what you are about to see, in the first frame, is heartbreaking in its totality. Much like the day the music died with Holly’s glasses ever reminding us. Satin hear this, nothing will save you for what you have done! When one thinks of the facts and weighs the evidence, and then ponders the times and also the nature of our governments; this may very well depress Gandalf’s readers right down to their very soul’s. Now reflect and ask yourself, should we not pick up Lennon’s flag and make it our own and carry-on? Therefore what John strove for and magnificently exemplified, shall not be all in vain, but instead it shall be accomplished, with the pleasure of delivering some serious ass kicking along the way. Then we shall be wielding our might for a better world, and happier tomorrow’s, that shall never be diminished! Gandalf lifts his staff and calls to the heavens and to the thunder above!

                       Discovering   “Revolution #9” an Interpretation.    Exclusive  Gandalf’s Staff Production:  Solution #9 Final master.mp3
                    Rock and Roll Ghosts  
 Gandalf’s Staff Lubbock,Tx  For almost  fifty years I have pondered the meaning behind the Beatles “Revolution Number Nine.”  Finally, I think I have found the solution to this puzzle. Solution #9 Final master.mp3 By combining the cut “Revolution Number Nine”  to a radio play “Nameless Day” the pieces to the puzzle seemingly came together. This could give you chill bumps when you hear it,“Solution Number Nine” To me, it was like John Lennon‘s ghost had roused me in the middle of the night telling me as I was thinking, “You must get up and hear this now” So going to my computer half-awake, I found that it was on Old Time Radio staring the ghost of John Doe #9. I hit the record button. That was strange indeed. It was similar to that strange feeling I get at the radio station. Buddy Holly did his show in these studios.  Sometimes when alone working late at night, I get this strange feeling that I may not be alone. That something or someone is in the building. Once I thought I saw someone moving in the hall out of the corner of my eye. I dashed down that hall to a dead end, nope nothing there.   It was that kind of sensation I felt, if you catch my drift. But whatever it was that awoke me that fateful night, it caused me many more sleepless nights in production until this work was completed. I think perhaps it was John’s ghost, telling me, telling us, we must not leave his greatest works yet undone. Please give this a listen and see if you don’t agree with me.  Peace forever more, found by John Doe #9, in this radio play from Hermit’s Cave. Hear it now in the Solution #9 Final master.mp3
Gandalf Notes: By the way, does anybody know if Buddy was wearing a brown leather mid-length coat the night the music died?  
Gandalf notes: Back during the days of Buddy Holly, it was not uncommon for one record label to murder another labels artists.  From Lubbock we can think of three killed under most suspicious circumstances. They were Buddy Holly, David Box (selected to be Buddy’s replacement with the Crickets) and Bobby Fuller of the Bobby Fuller Four. Gandalf is on to them …..more to come….

Related:  on C2C,  Rock Star Ghosts:  journalist and research writer at Penn State, Matthew Swayne , discussed true stories of rock star ghosts from renowned ghost hunters and researchers. He differentiated ghost folklore from ghost stories– stories are based on firsthand witnesses, whereas in folklore, the accounts’ sources tends to be more removed or vague. Because fans have a strong desire for their idols to remain and be part of their lives, rock stars might be more likely than other deceased people to stick around the earthly plane after their deaths, he suggested. Swayne shared reports of ghostly activity around the death of Rolling Stones member, Brian Jones. Marianne Faithfull was said to see his face in a mirror, and later when she went into a coma/NDE, Jones appeared to her and told her to go back. He also presented sightings and accounts involving such musicians as Robert Johnson, Elvis Presley, John Lennon, Mama Cass, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain, and Sid Vicious.

Several noted musicians claim to have had alien abduction experiences, including former Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley, singer-songwriter Cat Stevens, and ‘The Red Rocker’ Sammy Hagar, who was allegedly contacted by a group of beings called The Nine, Luckman explained. He shared details of John Lennon’s UFO sighting as well as his theory about how the former member of The Beatles was killed due to a dark alien force (related article ). Lennon’s killer, Mark David Chapman, was influenced by a dark entity that was opposed to Lennon’s message of peace and love, Luckman suggested.

                           Above the law US Is Seeking Death Penalty in Boston Case If this is the case Holder has passed judgment upon himself.  For he is the true terrorist. Sending thousands of assault riffles and ammunitions into Mexico in Fast and Furious, causing the killing of both innocent Americans and Mexicans. By the end of Felipe Calderón‘s administration (2006–2012), the official death toll of the Mexican Drug War was at least 60,000,<[42] although unconfirmed accounts set the homicide rate above 100,000 victims, given the large number of people who have disappeared.  Mexican Drug War – Wikipedia, A majority of the weapons used came from the US.  Holder propagated civil unrest and murder of many, in another county that of our southern border neighbor Mexico. Is it no wonder that with such civil unrest, the Mexicans are invading us? This was a hostile act in an on going war on Holders part. Just like as on 9-11, we would be calling for war with Mexico, if such had been done here in the U S by Mexican officials.  Prosecutors to seek death penalty in Boston Marathon bombing The Boston Marathon bombing pails in death and destruction when in comparison. Holder also allowed tons of drugs into the country, all to the profit of banks, the drug cartels as well as this country’s secret agencies, the corrupt agents, and their black operations. Guns and drugs with conspiracies to commit murder, for profit in one form or another, at every level of their transactions. If this is not Nazism in full bloom and in our faces, then nothing is. If one cannot see this, they would have to be dumber than the Germans were leading up to and during WW2.  Holder you sir are guilty with judgment awaiting you, both in this life and the here after. Nazi U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder today authorized the government to seek the death penalty against Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokar Tsarnaev. “After consideration of the relevant facts, the applicable regulations and the submissions made by the defendant’s counsel, I have determined that the United States will seek the death penalty in this matter. The nature of the conduct at issue and the resultant harm compel this decision,” Holder said in a statement. ………………….. more posted below..   Gandalf’s Staff

Gandalf’s open letter to Halle Berry
  I need for you to help by doing this movie about  Tulia (2014) – IMDb  It is my desire to expose these Nazis so that we might be able to seek justice for all that have suffered at their hands.  Those deprived of their liberty would be some fifty Negros with some still serving time, one Hispanic, and one white wizard; that would be me.  Lubbock is where it all began and when DEA started collecting everyone’s phone data .. Players in the Lubbock story include: DEA, the regonal task force, an ex-district attorney, and one dead sheriff to name but a few. If you recall Halle, when you were in in Lubbock, you had no trouble with the poparazzi. This place has nothing going on all the time. .. Halle Berry Testifies for Stronger Anti-Paparazzi Laws – ABC News The prime directive here is to serve in the public interest. And that is what I am doing by appealing to you now. Halle Berry Testifies For Anti-Paparazzi Bill in California – Breitbart
     Halle  during the trial in Lubbock of  undercover officer Tom Coleman I was aware of you, your model boyfriend, and that other guy at the Texas Spoon and Cafe during the Sunday night  jams. Independent Lens . TULIA, TEXAS | PBS  I am sorry but you guys made me feel a bit uneasy so I was ignoring you, but you must get this done for me, please. Tulia Movie (Development) – Movie Insider Now I see you are expecting again, so I have my doubts you will ever get this movie made, but if you do …. Halle Berry &Olivier Martinez Welcome Their Son!. We can do a book deal or something. This story started just before Tulia with over 50 Lubbock  blacks busted one latino and  one white and that would be me, which is the first  chapter of the Tulia story.  You need to know this.  1984 was just as real when I started uncovering this corruption within the West Texas  task force, LPD, DPS, LSO, and  prosecutors within local and federal branches of our criminal judicial system here on the plains of Texas. This Damon Richardson organized crime bust in Lubbock was a DA Travis Ware deal  in collusion with the LSO  DEA and LPD officer Osborne. Note also that I am not excluding some of those behind the bench. The fix is in to this day with some of these crooks, but not for long, if we can pull this off.
         Halle ……   Don’t let us down dear. Oh,and  grow some hair. Long beautiful hair, it gives babies something to grab.  Love you guys and I pray that love binds your family together forever. That you never have to suffer an assault on your family as that which was done to mine. and those poor folks in Tulia ….Gandalf
                                                        WHO Was Afraid to Be Naked on Screen?*
  *Halle Berry has confessed she “was always afraid” of being naked on screen. Are you thinking, “Wait! She was topless in ‘Swordfish, and ‘Monster’s Ball”? She says she accepted the role of Ginger Knowles in the 2001 film “Swordfish,” where she appeared topless, just to get over her fear of on-screen nudity. Halle Berry is stunning in this super sexy and very revealing sparkly silver cocktail dress. ”I always wanted to be the kind of actress that could be free with my body in that way, and not fear exposing myself or appearing naked on camera,” Bang Showbiz quotes Halle as saying. “I’ve always admired actresses–or actors–who are daring enough to risk themselves that way for their art … But I was always afraid of that.”The topless scene in “Swordfish” worked. Halle says that since then she has become more confident and accepted other parts that required nudity, including her Oscar-winning role in “Monster’s Ball” which contained a graphic sex scene with Billy Bob Thornton.About her role in “Swordfish,” Bang Showbiz quotes Halle as saying, ”That’s one of the reasons I did ‘Swordfish.’ Although it was very gratuitous, I had to do it to get over my fear of exposing myself. Had I not done ‘Swordfish’ I never would have been able to tackle ‘Monster’s Ball.’ I would have been too scared of the nudity … scared of what people might say … scared of the backlash.”Halle, who is married to Olivier Martinez, is expecting her second child while currently filing “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” She admits it’s been a bit tricky shooting with a protruding baby bump.

Baltimore Witness: Group of Blacks Beat Hispanic Man, Yelling ‘This Is For Trayvon’… One has to get angry about the way we are being manipulated.  I think Obama just showed us how stupid he is.

This jerk in the White House is droning children in foreign lands, killing them, and I do not recall hearing him speaking to the parents of the children he killed. Gandalf is not going for the song and dance…..  President Barack Obama released a statement a day after the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial, saying the “death of Trayvon Martin was a tragedy. Not just for his family, or for any one community, but for America. I know this case has elicited strong passions. And in the wake of the verdict, I know those passions may be running even higher. But we are a nation of laws, and a jury has spoken. I now ask every American to respect the call for calm reflection from two parents who lost their young son. “And as we do, we should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to widen the circle of compassion and understanding in our own communities. We should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence that claims too many lives across this country on a daily basis. We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this. As citizens, that’s a job for all of us. That’s the way to honor Trayvon Martin.”  NOT GUILTY  Final Verdict? DOJ’S RACE CASE FACES FBI BLOCK Will the Jury find a Latino guilty of being a White man?

       The Catholic Church will declare Pope John Paul II a saint, the Vatican said. The Polish-born pope was fast-tracked to beatification when he died in 2005 and became “the blessed” six years later — the fastest beatification in centuries. Pope John XXIII, who convened the Second Vatican Council in the 1960s, also will be declared a saint.
      On Coast to Coast July 5, 2013 Coast Insider Audio     Disinformation: On Thursday’s show, managing editor of World Net Daily, David Kupelian, and historian and law professor, Ronald Rychlak , discussed some of the most consequential yet largely unknown disinformation campaigns of our times, many begun during the Cold War by the Soviet bloc. Rychlak co-wrote his new book Disinformation with a former high-ranking Soviet bloc intelligence officer, Gen. Pacepa, who is still living undercover decades after he defected to the US. Before his defection, Pacepa’s used disinformation to persuade the West that communist Romania’s President Nicolae Ceausescu was a great and benevolent leader. Disinformation can be employed in various ways– in the case of Ceausescu to build him up, but it was also frequently used to discredit people.
  Kupelian compared the disinformation process to that of money laundering. First, you have misinformation– often intentionally wrong information that is put out by a government, and then introduced to a respected news organization. The public receives the information, camouflaged from its original source, in the form of “clean” and credible news, “and that is what we call disinformation– it’s not just the lie, it’s the fact that it’s been implanted in this clever way,” he explained.
  Soviet leaders often used a similar tactic when they came into power, spreading disinformation about the previous leader, such as how Khrushchev discredited Stalin, Rychlak detailed. Andropov, a former head of the KGB, who became the leader of the Soviet Union, took the tactic further, launching disinformation about foreign leaders, Rychlak continued. One fascinating case of disinformation was how the KGB built up the perception of Arafat as a peaceful leader, as part of their agenda to damage Israel, Kupelian remarked.

LT GOV INVESTIGATING MEDIA INCITEMENT OF ABORTION MOB… Nazi jerks in the legislature do not understand how we the people in Texas have had enough of their poor weak leadership. Gandalf finds that… In an exclusive* Hot Air interview, Lt. Governor David Dewhurst of Texas insists that the attempt to hijack the legislative process by pro-abortion activists this week will not stop the state from passing a limitation on late-term abortions and requirements for clinics to meet the same standards as other ambulatory surgical centers. Dewhurst also says that his office is reviewing the security tapes from the demonstration that derailed the bill at the end of the regular session, and that arrests may be made for inciting a riot — including perhaps some members of the media.  Gandalf encourages the media to start an investigation of Dewhurst

The Doors’ Robby Krieger on Bandmate Ray Manzarek’s Death: ‘I Will Always … Ray Manzarek, a founding member of the Doors, died yesterday at age 74, according to his publicist. He passed away in a clinic in Germany following a long struggle with cancer. Stupid Texas Nazis This is one reason I am put out at these morons in Austin. There is no valid reason for them to be legislating away another part of our constitutional rights; those of privacy that are over and out of the reach of government. They started this damn drug war that they will never be able to finish while also being able to preserve and maintain public liberty. Those are our God given rights that the constitution affords us. One or the other must go, either the drug war or public liberty.  What I do is none of your business but it is now that of the government’s.  Your business is today their business. One works hard, pays taxes, and earns these unemployment benefits. The state should fork them over when they are needed, regardless of what is in some vile of urine.

Gandalf’s Staff Lubbock    Did San Antonio’ s Sheriff have The Lightning’s editor attacked over a news story? Richard Griffing a good friend and editor of the San Antonio Lightning , called Gandalf weeks before he was attacked, telling Gandalf that he was going after the San Antonio Sheriff in a report with credible, verified, substantiated witnesses. That he was releasing his story in the San Antonio Lightning. In that report we found that the sheriff had been stopped while driving a Mercedes Benz not belonging to him, by SAPD for weaving on the road. After checking with supervisors, the police gave the sheriff a ride to his home, which was outside of their jurisdiction. Richard felt that he might be attacked or even killed by the sheriff and Gandalf promised him he would not let this story go if anything happened to him. Whichit did.  Gandalf now finds the followingBexar Co Jail Sucides Soar and also Sheriff Amadeo Ortiz Using… The story was published.  Days—hours—before RG Griffing died, he was walking across the street from his home, and blind-side knocked out. Minding his own business—amidst a major-deep investigation on the sheriffs department—RG was knocked-clean-out and lost two teeth.  Sheriff’s office denies rumor of Ortiz DWI – San Antonio Express-News  He woke up and called several of his best friends. He never stayed on HOLD long enough to make an official complaint. Sheriff Ortiz pulled over on DWI charge – Discussion on Topix  A few days before he—predictably—died—RG Griffing was, for the first time in his old-assed life, attacked on the street, literally. Unrelated ??? to that Fact, Sheriff Amadeo Ortiz was rumored to have been pulled over, repeatedly, by various law enforcement organizations for weaving down the roads. The details surrounding those allegations have gone flat, since Ortiz won the local Democrat nomination for Sheriff.  The story broken by Griffing as an exclusive which local media quickly picked up. Sheriff Ortiz might not be a Drunk Driver, and his calls for random checkpoints—like the Nazis—might only be a coincidence. Sheriff Ortiz might just be a good servant of his constituents. The Lightning is checking those details.San Antonio Lightning  RIP This story is one of Richard Griffing’s scoops that he was working on when he died… The sheriff lost his bid for re-election. Pamerleau Beats Ortiz: First Elected Female Bexar County Sheriff

THE TWO TOWERS  Upon them stood the Teeth of Mordor, two towers strong and tall. In days long past they were built by the Men of Gondor in their pride and power, after the overthrow of Sauron and his flight, lest he should seek to return to his old realm. But the strength of Gondor failed, and men slept, and for long years the towers stood empty. Then Sauron returned. Now the watch-towers, which had fallen into decay, were repaired, and filled with arms, and garrisoned with ceaseless vigilance.”
Two Towers 9/11 & C2C   The Review:  In the first half, veteran airline captain Philip Marshall revealed the connections between the 9/11 hijackers and the Saudi Arabian intelligence community. Lead investigator of the Congressional Joint Inquiry, Senator Bob Graham, uncovered such a relationship and has filed a lawsuit against Saudi Arabia for their role in the attack, Marshall said. The hijackers were in contact with Saudi Arabian aviation experts, he continued, adding that “none of the official evidence mentions any kind of role by bin Laden and al-Qaeda.” Marshall dismissed theories that the Pentagon was struck by a missile, though he acknowledged that the incredible speed at which the plane was traveling (480 knots) would have made it sound and even appear like a missile attack. Photographic evidence shows Boeing engine turbines inside the Pentagon, as well as wing fairings and other metallic wreckage with American Airline’s paint job, he noted. There is no doubt that American Flight 77 hit the Pentagon, Marshall stated.He spoke about the extraordinary skill required to pilot a Boeing 757 at high speeds at low altitude, and to navigate the aircraft to a single building from 270 miles away (distance when hijackers took over the plane). Marshall said he attempted the Washington DC attack himself in a simulator and, despite his 20 years of experience flying Boeing airliners and 15,000 hours of flight time, it took him four tries to hit the Pentagon. “To suggest that this was the first time that guy had ever flown a 757 is absolutely impossible,” he stressed. According to Marshall, the 9/11 hijackers were tailed by the FBI from the moment they landed in Los Angeles on January 12, 2000. They learned to fly on small aircraft and simulators then, after George W. Bush became president, started disappearing into the Arizona desert for days at a time, he disclosed. Marshall believes the hijackers were trained at a CIA-operated airport, Pinal Air Park, by a Saudi group from an aviation charter that operated Boeing aircraft. He connected the people in charge of Pinal to Wall Street and ultimately to Dick Cheney, and suggested that President Bush knew enough not to scramble fighters to intercept the hijackers.
