Review: Matt Skow’s TruHistory Films’ four-part docuseries on the USS Liberty
by Brian R. Wright, 8.5×11-inch PDF version of review located here

One is at a loss for superlatives in reviewing this stellar work, Sacrificing Liberty. First, it’s a state of the art, full audiovisual-impact documentary, finely honed by one director-editor-cinematographer-archival-artistic-retrievalist Matthew Skow under auspices of the TruNews Christian media network with the utmost care for the men of the USS Liberty—whether surviving, injured (174), or killed (34)—out of a crew of 294.

In case you missed it, the Liberty was the American state-of-the-art communications ship in the middle of the so-called Six-Day War that Israel strafed and torpedoed in International Waters. The day, June 8, 1967, when Israel effectively declared war on the United States—it should have lived in infamy—was passed over in deafening silence by most Americans thanks to the official story that the Jewish State MISTOOK the Liberty—despite American flags flying on a clear day and large bold-white insignia on the bow [and Israel’s own flying-boxcar airplanes’ protracted surveillance]—for a much smaller WWI Egyptian horse-ferrying vessel.

Several books and videos have been produced—starting with Jim Ennes’s book, Assault on the Liberty—showing beyond any reasonable doubt that the attack was anything but accidental… and in fact was a combined covert hare-brained project risking nuclear war with the Russians concocted by a treasonous president (LBJ), key members of his Zionist[1]-dominated administration, top US military officials, and the Israeli military. This author has written reviews of or composed the following works:

All of the above, and others demolishing the official story, are worthwhile and deeply moving, and serve to show just how transcendent and comprehensive a production Sacrificing Liberty is. SL in effect puts together all the wonderful exposes and tributes into a comprehensive narrative that will become, one hopes, a rallying journalistic coup d’etat for American patriots.[2]

The coverup of the truth behind the USS Liberty attacks was heavy-handedly thorough from the start. Crew were warned, actually threatened, in person by Admiral Kidd that they were not to talk to one another, to their families, and especially to the media—or they would face imprisonment “or worse.” Meaning death. Survivors were sent to separate assignments for the rest of their naval service.

The court of inquiry ordered by Admiral John McCain, Sr., Commander in Chief, US Naval Forces, Europe, was confined to only a few days for investigation, and its report was a complete travesty, not including any of the key Israel-incriminating testimony of officers and crew of the Liberty. The official story was ordered to be “mistaken identity,” and that was that. Embedded global Judenpresse organs complied.

For some reason I have in my head that Ennes’s book, Assault on the Liberty, did not really get any traction until later in the Reagan presidency ca. mid-1980s. His was the start of breaking thru the secrecy and suppression, and I speculate that it was let to seep thru the blanket orders of absolute silence because:

  1. the Liberty was filtering into the cultural conversation, anyway, at that time and to make a big effort to silence it would only draw more attention,
  2. Zionist media was in full force to diminish it, and library copies of the book were mysteriously caused to disappear,
  3. Ennes, if memory serves me, did not directly present a case for the true reason for the coverup and gag orders—namely that the prime mover for the attacks and coverup was President Johnson and key Zionist members of his administration, who committed explicit treason.

Skow’s Sacrificing Liberty lays all such doubts to rest. Dramatically, passionately.

SL is a four-DVD documentary dissection and cry for justice worth every penny:

  1. Unfriendly Fire—The ostensible leadup from the sailors’ side, “we’re going effing where?” On 6/8, the morning-hour surveillance by several Israeli flying-boxcar aircraft. Then the attacks, several unmarked French Mirage fighters and Mystere fighter-bombers dropping napalm, three Star-of-David-flagged torpedo boats, and the coup de grace: Israeli army helicopters with commandoes to kill survivors [called off at the point of dropping, thanks to Liberty’s SOS getting out].
  2. Perfectly Executed Military Operation—Assessment of damage, cleanup and patching up the wounded. What just happened, all the questions pertaining to the multiservice Israeli field operation. Again from the Liberty’s point of view, but starting to touch on the White House’s and higher military official involvement in the sacrifice of the Liberty.
  3. Jigsaw Puzzle—The coverup and gag order. As the men and ship sail to Malta. Commander Lewis’s recount of Admiral Geis’s “‘on death only’-to-be revealed” confession of LBJ’s order to him to recall the rescue aircraft and that LBJ did not care how many men died to avoid embarrassment to “our ally”—hours before it was known that the Israelis had done it. The foundations of the coverup and limping to Malta for repair, cosmetics, and reassembling bodies like a “jigsaw puzzle”—before going home w/skeleton crew. The bogus Board of Inquiry.
  4. It’s not a Whodunit, it’s a Whydunit—Peter Hounam and Operation Cyanide. Probably the most detailed unraveling this side of Peter Hounam’s book, Skow dives into LBJ and his Jewish-Zionist entourage with no holds barred (including the probable Israeli spy with whom LBJ had an affair, Mathilde Krim)—it’s also made clear, with expert narrative, just who were the major causal agents, notably James Jesus Angleton, head of CIA’s counterintelligence—almost certainly a Mossad double agent.

The series wraps up with an appeal for justice, starting with “an investigation”—proper and official. [Refer to my guest column from Joe Meadors for the reason why justice for the Liberty is still vital to the Republic.] A word on the setup. The story is told using a master narrator, and several of the surviving crew in voice overs. These are:

Now I’ll go through a more detailed review of each disk, trying not to include too many spoilers. [Note: in the process of review, I actually do assemble what amounts to a fairly accurate transcript of the docuseries, especially the final two volumes. (I’ll post the transcript on my site here:]

At the beginning of each disk—I’ll also refer to the DVD volumes as “chapters”—Skow flashes a note: “This Film Has Been Declassified”. Which is interesting in itself, because the material gives you the feeling of being a fly on the wall of several covert proceedings, like watching a spy thriller, only for real.

1. Unfriendly Fire (68 Minutes)

The footage of the film, the archival quality, is so expert you feel on board. Skow sets a lot of TV news of the time into what looks like a template of a 1960s TV set(s), with realistic looks of people sitting in their living rooms or kitchens and taking it all in. It’s a highly stimulating effect, showing what the people are being told at the time through official sources, contrasted to what is really going on.

Where the action is. The Liberty is dispatched “in a hurry” to no specific objective except to sit as general intel collection point—official story is to support evacuation of US embassy personnel in Israel. The Israelis have already launched their preplanned (with covert US intelligence and military assistance) successful blitzkrieg on Egyptian forces and run them out of the Sinai desert. As crewman Ernie Gallo states, “the Libertyhad no reason to be there, because the war had practically been won.”

The ship, despite strong requests from Captain William McGonagle and Chief Intelligence Officer (CIO), Commander David Lewis, to Admiral William Martin of the Sixth Fleet, was given no destroyer escort. The argument being, “you’re obviously an intelligence ship in international waters with the American flag flying and insignia; nobody is going to attack you.” The Liberty was unarmed except for a couple of 50-mm machine gun platforms to deter boarders.

The attack was swift, brutal, and relentless. Starting at ~1400 local time, first the jets with cannon and rockets made a dozen or so sorties, penetrating the skin and generating shrapnel everywhere. No one was spared on the deck. Then the slower Mysteres dropped napalm nearer the bridge of the ship. Three Israeli-flagged PT boats showed up and fired five torpedoes, miraculously (and through uncanny sailing by the Captain) only one striking the Liberty.

Again it was a miracle that that one torpedo—delivered directly to the intelligence communications-gathering room and killing 25 of the 34 killed that day—did not collapse the inner structure and bulkheads and sink the craft. Several of the men and narrators comment that solely a Divine Providence accounts for the fact that the ship survived.

What I remember from nonmainstream news that I’d seen, maybe, in the 1990s, and is reaffirmed in spades with the SL account is the several circlings and sadistic 40-mm-machine-gunning by the PT boats… of stretcher bearers and life rafts, literally slicing Liberty safety equipment personnel to ribbons. The boats also took out water spigots and hoses needed to fight the raging fires, targeting anyone performing rescue work.

The one key heroic event that transpired (about 20 minutes into the air attack)—which saved the Liberty and quite likely the world from World War III—came courtesy a ship’s company electrician named Terry Halbardier. Braving strafing on the deck, where he still suffered multiple wounds, he ran a stretch of coaxial cable directly to the one functioning high-up antenna, which enabled the Liberty to open a call for help. [The first thing the unmarked jets had homed in on were any emitting antennae; the antenna Terry connected had been disconnected prior to the attacks for maintenance.]

On a personal note, he’s one of the key heroes of American history, that I wanted to meet during my attendance, as a patriot-civilian, at the 50th Anniversary event in Norfolk, Virginia, in 2017. He had died that year. RIP and thank you gallant one! [You could make a profiles in courage full-length movie of Terry Halbardier’s heroism that day; he should definitely receive the Congressional Medal of Honor posthumously.][3]

A setup suspense teaser for the next chapter: Dave Lewis: “If the men knew that the President had set them up to die, we may have had the first mutiny in the American Navy in history.”

2. Perfectly Executed Military Operation (55 Minutes)

Starts with Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, who clearly wasn’t privy to the insider plot, making a statement and giving reasons that he never accepted the official story of mistaken identity; further he holds Israel responsible for a deliberate attack. (60s TV console.)

The “Liberty Ballad” chorus:

When daylight pierced the vessel,
One cloud was in the sky
I beheld the Star of Remphan
With a million questions why
But if it helps you to sleep
You can picture me at the bottom of the sea.

This plaintive refrain I presume was composed and sung by Mike Rathke, who is credited with Original Music. It is the perfect underscore to the plea of the documentary, and is sung to launch each of the chapters, sometimes to end them, occasionally with further stanzas to emphasize a vital scene. Quite beautiful, poetic… and haunting.

Commander Dave Lewis comes on to summarize, really, the entire field operation:

  • The jets were sent to cut us off from communicating.
  • The boats were sent to sink us.
  • The helicopters were sent to kill the survivors, so there’d be no trace.

Evidence of preplanning and intention is manifest. The Israelis jammed all frequencies, including the distress frequencies, which is a violation of international law. It was a war crime. This chapter is about the immediate aftermath, and the beginning of the extreme official coverup—and corresponding high-official disgraceful mistreatment of the survivors.

Thanks to Terry Halbardier, the LibertySOS got to the USS America and to the USS Saratoga, 500 miles away, south of Crete w/6th Fleet. Captain Tully of the Saratogalaunched 12 aircraft conventionally armed; the America, which was closer to the Liberty, also was directed to launch F4s to come to help. Almost immediately, a message came to Tully from Rr. Adm. Lawrence Geis—on orders from the White House—to return all aircraft to their carriers.

Captain Bill Knutson USN, pilot on the America reflects. Says they launched their “ready cap,” after clearing the nuclear weapons from the aircraft. He’s interviewed several times in the video series; he conveys his extreme disappointment to be recalled and not to have been able to protect his fellow Navy Americans.

No plane reached the vicinity of the Libertyfor more than 17 hours.

The mess hall became the hospital, with every table occupied. Doctor Richard Kiephfer, who caught shrapnel in his stomach, was obliged to use his life jacket to keep his insides intact while operating, standing up for hours. He had two corpsmen for assistants, they may have saved 100 lives!

Many wondered, “How are we not sinking?” There was a 12 degree list to starboard (the right). [Most of the injured men would have gotten stuck inside had the ship tipped.] But it held. One survival miracle following others. Hand of God?

Next morning, June 9th, jets from the America started flying patrol, and helicopters executed a rescue mission to retrieve bodies and wounded. Lt. Wayne Stiles, helicopter pilot, comments: “Ours was the first helicopter to reach the Liberty. We couldn’t really land anywhere, only take a small risky space for hovering. Devastation was enormous. Almost like a hulk.” There was a complete lockdown on information from higher officers to him and his fellows.

This part of the video shows some of the most touching footage, transporting the wounded and additional stanzas of the “Liberty Ballad.”

When daylight pierced the vessel
One cloud was in the sky
I beheld the Star of Remphan
With a million questions why
And every hole that tore my soul that day
I still carry them with me
By sheer determination and God’s grace
I remained
But if it helps you to sleep
You can picture me at the bottom of the sea.

The media was already primed for coverup and for disseminating the official story. Robert Goralski of the New York Times is shown in a TV news report, just in passing noting, as if it were accepted objective news, that the attack had been accidental. [Typical, and more and more the case today with all networks and Big Tech.]

John Conroy, petty officer, USN, of the destroyer USS Davis was assigned to watch a Navy combat photography team from Naples. They had forgotten their film. (!!!) Conroy then retrieved his own 8mm movie camera via the connecting highline to the Davis; he took some important film footage that becomes a key part of Sacrificing Liberty visuals at this point.

Conroy notes, “The crew seemed to be in shock, but functioning.”

Captain McGonagle wanted the ship cleaned up. They recovered body parts from the deck and washed out blood stains as best they could. In one of the gun tubs, the killed sailor’s blood had thickened to a four-inch depth, per Phil Tourney.

Then the six-day transit 1000 miles, to Malta—rather than Crete, which was half as far. The reason became clear: this is when Adm. Isaac Kidd came aboard, with his legal aide Judge Advocate Ward Boston. Kidd was sent over by John McCain, Sr., to conduct a hands-on preliminary inquiry, Conroy was assigned to type up the notes. Kidd had a reputation as a ruthless suppressor of officially embarrassing information.

Per John Beattie, from Fraser, MI (1/4/48-6/29/20), “Kidd was a pretty big guy, and he was just talking to us normally. Said, ‘I’m just like your dad, and I want to get this taken care of.’ He took off his stars and threw them on the table.”

Five of them opened up. Phil Tourney was the final one. Phil was the on-scene leader of the forward repair party. Said he saw two torpedoes, Israeli-flagged torpedo boats. Didn’t see the one that hit. “I thought we were going to sink, yes.” Then Kidd put his stars back on. “He got real close to me and got beet red, and said, ‘I want to tell you something, sailor, now I’m an admiral again. You ever repeat one word about the USS Liberty and who did it to you, I’ll guarantee I’ll see you in Leavenworth or worse. Do you know what worse means?’”

Phil: “Yes, sir, I do.” then said, “Well what’d you leave us out there alone for?”

Kidd says, “I’m an admiral now, you call me admiral or sir, period!”

Phil: “You would think the admiral would pat you on the back or say something nice, but they set us up again, to get all the information they could and beat us into the ground. It was just like the attack, over again. It was worse than heartbreak, I felt like scum, just a piece of gum on a shoe. I had no self-worth.”

Commander Lewis’s suspense teaser for the next chapter: “Per Adm. Geis personal conference with him aboard the America, ‘What I’m about to tell you is for your ears only, you’re not to tell anyone during my lifetime.’”

Liberty Ballad”

Then I locked eyes with the pilot
Threw my fists into the air
‘Cause I’d rather die in violence
Than cower at your sneer
And I’ve held these wounds for decades
In my heart and while you keep them in the dark
I stored up wrath that you cannot erase
No it remains

But if it helps you to sleep…

3. Jigsaw Puzzle (55 min.)

Opens with a statement on a 60s TV template in an average American living room, by Adm. Arleigh Burke, Chief, US Naval Operations, 1955-1961, Navy Cross. “There must be some reason why more is not known, why we didn’t act more deliberately, more directly, more positively, as we have reacted many times in our history, before and since.”

Liberty Ballad” chorus.

At this point, Skow shows a series of carrier jet takeoffs and landings. [Note: these images of the carrier operations by our F4 fighters and other craft are powerful. I remember reading a short story by Tom Wolfe on how earthshaking it is to witness them, in person. This is a good time to also note that Sacrificing Liberty is recorded in full “superwombat thunderpig” latest sound technology. Simulating your being in the middle of the action.]

Knutson: “We didn’t get a chance to do our jobs. We were pissed off, frankly. And nobody would tell us anything.”

David Lewis on his conversation with Adm. Geis: “He sat me down. ‘What I’m about to tell you is for your ears only!’ He knew it was going to be hushed up, but he had to get it off his chest. He proceeded to tell me he had launched aircraft. He said they had hardly gotten airborne before Defense Secretary Robert McNamara recalled them.”

[McNamara’s statement shown “no memory of anything.”]

”Operation Critic (Criticom network). Means that McNamara and President knew immediately what was going on. Geis said he assumed some idiot in Washington thought he was launching nukes to come to the assistance of the Liberty, so he reconfigured a flight of aircraft incapable of carrying nukes and relaunched them. Immediately, McNamara comes on the line again. Geis ‘challenges the order.’ LBJ picks up the line and says”:

[Pictures of the White House oval office, with advisers and LBJ.]

“Recall the damned aircraft. I don’t care if the ship sinks and all the sailors are killed, I will not embarrass my ally.”

Lewis: “That was several hours before he was notified who did it.”

Lewis: “The coverup was to protect a treasonous president.”

Transit to Malta. Smell unbelievable. 20+ rotting bodies in 110 degree water in the former communications room that had been torpedoed.

Larry Bowen: “No fanfare on arrival, no families, no acknowledgment. Officers were manning the lines to dock the ship, which is unheard of. They were the first ones coming on board, too—indication of extreme coverup obvious from that.” News reports: “Liberty still shrouded in mystery. No talk.”

Took 1.5 days to get ship into actual dry dock. Ronald Kukal was tagged by an officer with running the body recovery in the torpedoed top secret communications room. Miracle? Torpedo hit I-beam or the ship would have gone down.

The video then spends several minutes on the grisly work of assembling body parts with bodies (nightmares that those men doing the work still have, some nightly)… hence, Jigsaw Puzzle. Musical score is fitting, like a Clint Eastwood score. Chords. I have to say that this is one of the most moving segments of video I’ve ever seen, and not for weak stomachs—as realistic as one can make it for general audiences; I would say extreme sadness is the predominant feeling you have, rather than any urge to toss your cookies.

Next the order came down to remove all the evidence of projectiles penetrating the structures of the ship. Totally cosmetic. Overall the “sanitizing/whitewashing” of the Liberty in Malta takes ~30 days.

Shafer: “When we got to Malta, we were instructed to not talk to anyone. This was an incident that did not happen. Keep it inside. That ship was never going to sail again as an operational ship.”

The Liberty returns to an out-of-the-way port. No naval or political hierarchy from DC. A few families.

Tourney: “Not a homecoming, another slap in the face. By the government. Media. They threatened us. Not to talk to anyone ever again.”

Hal Six: “Makes you ashamed to be part of the experience. What did we do wrong, why were we labeled the bad guys and we can’t talk about it?”

[Pictures of family greetings on the dock.]

Lewis: “The coverup was so extensive it affected every area of our lives. Hard to imagine they could cover up so much for so long. They’re still covering it up today. There’s a limited group who betrayed me. Very influential but limited.”

The bogus Court of Inquiry. The fix was in. This part of the story adds key observations from those who had to follow orders.

Captain Ward Boston, Jr., retired: (on 60s TV) “We were given one week, Adm. McCain. Nature of that court was such that it could have taken six months.” Tourney: “I knew from Kidd that the official story was in play. And that snake John S. McCain, Sr., was in on it. He ordered Kidd and Boston to dress down the crew thoroughly.”

Rr. Adm. Merlin Staring, Judge Advocate General of the Navy from headquarters in London CINCSNAVEUR. [on 60s TV set.] “Ward, I have some real problems with this, it’s not something I can toss off, and I’m only partway through it, and I’m not sure how long it’s going to take me. I can’t give you a time at the moment, but it’s my sole project. He returned to my office in the space of 45 minutes at the Admiral’s direction to pick up the record from me and take it back down to McCain’s office. I returned it to him. I had not even started to prepare an endorsement action that I could recommend for his signature. The record was never sent back to me, as Admiral McCain’s legal officer. I never saw it again as a matter of fact. This is the only time where a record of such an investigation has been withdrawn from me after I had been asked to review it.”

Knutson: “We were told by NAVAIR at 6thFleet staff that this was not to be talked about and just act like it never happened. We don’t wanna hear about it. This is a non-incident not to be talked about.”

Mickey Lemay: “Two pieces. One, the American government putting the ship there, and 2) then Israel being the one that executed the try-and-sinking of it. And you got two powerful controls of the United States, that won’t let it come up.”

Lewis: “Anybody that gets a big enough audience on the Liberty is a danger to the special relationship Israel has with the US, and they’re going to do anything in their power to prevent it.”

Pageler: “Our presidential Unit Citation, McGonagle’s Medal of Honor, says we were attacked by foreign jet aircraft. It doesn’t say we were attacked by Israel.”

Shafer: “Captain McGonagle is the only Medal of Honor winner in history where the president did not give him the medal personally. He was sent to an obscure Navy yard. It was kept quiet. If you think about that a minute, you know that’s an insidious part of the coverup.”

Admiral Moorer (former Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman, and chair of the Moorer Commission, 2004) on the tombstones at Arlington: “Took some effort to inscribe properly that they had died aboard the USS Liberty in action.”

Beattie: “On my record, DD214, it doesn’t have me on the Liberty and it doesn’t have me getting these ribbons.”

Tourney: “They scattered us all, took us to different duty stations around the world. All over where you couldn’t keep in contact with one another.”

Lewis: “They didn’t want us talking and making a plan.”

[Several other stories by the several narrators are given, all appropriately scored and backgrounded by imagery, both still and moving.]

Based on what they began to appreciate from the coverup and information that was even then coming to light, Moe Shafer and Commander Lewis wind up this chapter with a teaser-suspense of what is to come in Volume 4:

Shafer: “That’s what the world really doesn’t know today. And I think that’s why we were sworn to secrecy, is how close we really came to a potential nuclear holocaust.”

Lewis: “You know how much press the nuclear warheads got when they landed in Cuba? Well, this was a thousand times worse but nobody knows about it.”

4 It’s Not a Whodunit. It’s a Whydunit. (78 minutes)

(60s TV set) Questioning former chief of staff of the Israeli Defense Force (IDF).

Won’t talk.

Peter Hounam talks. “Hypothesis is growing stronger and stronger: it was a cooked up exercise to give America a pretext for attacking Egypt.” He wrote a book, Operation Cyanide. Dick Thompson, former CIA wanted to uncover, but had no media takers.

Lewis: “Captain Ward Boston, attorney for the COI, knew it was a phony court of inquiry and the outcome was decided in advance. Boston (1999): ‘Clear in my mind they intended to sink the Liberty, and they were disappointed that they didn’t.’”

Hounam: Surveillance. “Israel could NOT have mistakenly attacked.”

Moorer: “Easiest ship to recognize in the ocean.”

Hounam: “Why were the lifeboats destroyed; some pulled aboard the PT boats to prevent evidence of the war crime. Lockwood: “One of the lifeboats is in the Israeli War Museum in Haifa as a trophy of war.”

Reviewer’s note: This final chapter of the Sacrificing Liberty series, is the ultimate payoff and puts together a one-package indictment as it were of the cabal responsible for one of the most reprehensible war crimes in history. The title is slightly misconceived, the Libertyattacks and coverup ARE a consummate WHOdunit, at least for the majority of SL’s audience—when you go into the DEEP WHO, not just the obvious Israeli military in the field.

I, myself, being familiar with a great deal of the Liberty exposés to this point, had not appreciated the extent to which President Johnson and his administration of Zionist-Jew toadies and Israeli spies were the prime movers of this bizarre treasonous act on behalf of a foreign enemy—though of course that enemy fully appreciated the treason and was willing to carry out its vicious act of mass murder of these Americans.

With this fourth disk/chapter/volume of SL, the producers, and writer-director fully endorse the Operation Cyanide explanation offered, chiefly, by acclaimed international journalist and author, Peter Hounam. And offer, through their own research, additional nails to the coffin of the official explanation.

These nails—primarily deep background of the inside players in the LBJ entourage, in addition to LBJ schmoozers extraordinaire, Arthur and Mathilde Krim, certainly an Israeli spy, with whom LBJ was having an affair—further show beyond reasonable doubt a conspiracy between high American and Israeli government officials to risk nuclear holocaust by the false-flag sinking of the Liberty, killing all crew, blaming Egypt, joining Israel in the war against Egypt, and dropping nuclear bombs on Cairo.

Per Grace Halsell, staff writer for Lyndon Johnson:

“Everyone around me, without exception, was pro-Israel [she, too, at the time]. Johnson had a dozen or more close associates and aides who were both Jewish and pro-Israel. There were Walt Rostow at the White House, his brother Eugene at State, and Arthur Goldberg, Ambassador to the United Nations. Other pro-Israel advisers included Abe Fortas, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, Democratic Party fundraiser, Abraham Feinberg, White House counsels, Leo White and Jake Jacobson. I could see the comings and goings of Abe Fortas and Arthur Goldberg, and I knew that Walt Rostow in particular, had close Israeli connections and met frequently with Israeli Embassy Minister, Ephraim “Eppy” Evron.”

I have not read Operation Cyanide yet, but I still must conclude that Skow and SLinclude additional detailed and irrefutable evidence in high-impact form of the conspiracy. Then, for the remainder of the chapter, the writer-director interviews widely and demonstrates conclusively the extent to which Israel and the Global Zionists now completely run the United States’ foreign and military policy—along with its major legacy media, entertainment, and all but a few gasping-for-breath Constitutional shreds of our legal institutions.[4] The domination is full-spectrum, and the result is virtually terminal, complete corruption of the founding principles (First Principles)[5] of our country. Though I do not think the global situation is hopeless for humanity.[6]

Back to the review of the docuseries and this particular chapter of it, let me refer you first to the aforementioned effective rough transcript document I’ve created, ref. this Chapter 4 in particular: I’ll finish this part of the review by providing key quotes and statements from my transcript. Frankly, I became glued to every subsequent set of particulars; this chapter [and its accompanying brilliant audiovisuals] will BLOW… YOUR… MIND!:



Captain Kiepfer, MD: [on 60s TV] “The Navy board of inquiry would not permit testimony of the jamming, the recall, the unmarked planes, the shooting of life rafts, and so on. Never before has the US Navy ignored eyewitness testimony of American military to accept on faith the story told by their attackers.”

Hounam: “Israel wants what they call the Promised Land, Greater Israel, and it isn’t and wasn’t the area they occupied in 1967.” Ref. to the Greater Israel Project.

Hounam: “The deal was that America would not actively take part in the war at the beginning, but it would, long before the war broke out, help Israel prepare to launch an attack on Egypt. The Americans wanted to remove Nasser. [Photos showing.] Nearly a year before the Six Day War broke out, American state of the art electronic equipment, surveillance equipment, jamming equipment, or what is known as spoofing or cooking equipment to falsify radio signals was shipped to Israel with personnel to train people. I’ve interviewed people who did the training. [Flash: “Film Has Been Declassified.] They say it was Operation Cyanide, point blank.”

[tense music showing light cruiser flagship, the USS Little Rock.]

[The next several minutes show eye witness and other evidence that the US was preparing for a nuclear war against China and Russia. And it related to the Sixth Fleet and the Liberty, and how close—within about six minutes, the Liberty’s Terry Halbardier’s SOS called it off—we came to full-scale nuclear war. Russian generals and submarine commanders are interviewed, too.]

Hounam: “We were within probably only minutes from that happening, when orders came from Washington, and there are several stories from people who overheard—McNamara and LBJ shouting down the phone, ‘Stop the attack, call everybody back.’”

Lewis: “We were six minutes from WW3.”

Phillip Nelson, author of Remember theLiberty: “On November 24, 1963, at the state funeral for JFK, Lyndon Johnson had met Golda Meir [image: PM Israel 1969-1974] there and promised her that, ‘Although you have lost a friend, you have gained a better one.’ Almost immediately he began accommodating everything Israel wanted.”

Hounam: “You had a situation in 1967 America where the White House was virtually penetrated by people with very strong connections to Israel.”

Halsell: “On occasion I saw a strikingly attractive blonde woman who I learned was an ardent supporter of Israel and a woman of whom the President was fond. Her background sounded like material from a spy novel.” [Halsell expands in depth.]

Hounam: “Mathilde Krim was an Israeli, worked for Jewish underground organizations. She was almost certainly a Jewish spy. She certainly was telling Israeli contacts everything that was going on, and was one of the key go-betweens. Every day she was in the White House during the Six Day War. It is very suspicious—and very odd—that it was allowed.”

Lewis: “His girlfriend from the Mossad [Mathilde] told him that he (LBJ) could raise all kinds of money to conclude the Vietnam War. People had gotten tired of Vietnam and they wanted to see an end to it, and he thought he could finish it off if he pulled this one stunt off, and killed 294 Americans in the process.”

Hounam: The James Jesus Angleton connection: “By all accounts Angleton maintained a close relationship with Israel forever. He was head of CIA counterintelligence! A hotline to Mossad, is how he built his career in he CIA. [Head of Counterintelligence is supposed to STOP penetration of the administration by foreign powers!]”

Lewis: “I think that Angleton, the COO of the CIA, was the one picked by a member of the 303 Committee, to implement Johnson’s fantastic, weird scheme of eliminating our ship as a pretext for invading Egypt.”

Hounam: “Operation Cyanide, what was this thing? It was a plan, an agreement, between Israel and the US admin to prepare for a war with Egypt. Because the Americans who I think are the prime movers wanted to get rid of President Nasser, who they saw was becoming a stooge and a dangerous man (Angleton propaganda) who’s allowing communism to spread thru the Middle East, which they were petrified about.”

McNamara: “I am not saying anything about the Liberty, period!”


Hounam: “I like to think that really after what happened to the Liberty and all this skullduggery that was going on…, Israel had America by the scruff of the neck. Such was the need to cover up what America had got up to during the Six Day War that Israel was in a position to influence, one could even say to blackmail, America, into becoming the main supplier of arms and aid. And of course it’s just mushroomed ever since.”

Ernie: “The Liberty is a microcosm of this much bigger problem in the Middle East. And Americans need to know what happened, the story has to be told.”

Lewis: “We won’t defeat Zionism controlling America until you accept the truth of what has happened in the past. So we’ve pretty much uncovered the Liberty, but we haven’t achieved justice. Nobody in Washington will accept the fact that it was a deliberate attack, with an attempt to eliminate us. The Zionists are an enemy of the United States and they’ve subverted the policy of the United States.”

[Footage of the current asterisk president, Biden, giving a pro-Israel rant in 1986.]

McCloskey: “They play too big a role, … fear of members of Congress and the Senate, is that they will be labeled anti-Semitic if they criticize Israel.

James Traficant, former Congressman from Ohio: “I was the number one target in the country of the Justice Department, the IRS, the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee. I brought home John Demjanjuk from Israel, I proved he was innocent, and they’ve hated me ever since, and they finally put me in prison.”

Mitch McConnell, former Senate majority leader: “Love for Israel exists all across America…. A common history draws America and Israel together.”

Ernie Gallo: “I mean, if America knew they tried to sink one of our ships deliberately? I mean, you know, they’re killing American citizens and getting away with it. And getting away with it. Let that sink in.”

Captain Joseph Tully: “Every US ship that has been sunk since the USS Maine in Havana Harbor in 1898 has been investigated by the Congress, and none of them have ever bothered to investigate the attack on the Liberty.”

Lewis: “90% of the country doesn’t know what the Liberty is, was, or what happened to it, and until we can get a hundred million people aware of it and energetic about it, it’ll all be covered up because it convicts a president of treason.”

TV 60s Ward Boston: “The case should be reopened for nothing but to show the valor, the heroism, and the odds that these people took on to survive.”

Bowen: “Our government should be ashamed of the way they treated us and ashamed of the fact that they refuse to investigate fully what happened….”

[Footage showing dancing Israeli graphs, Netanyahu saying 911 was good, Iraq, Trump Heights, with final message INVESTIGATE THE USS LIBERTY, powerful graphic of the Ted Arens sculpture-painting, with passage from Luke. Catchy songs in the nature of a Christian benediction. “You said Follow Me” folk quality. A long visual on the side of the hazing,[7] names of the narrators on the left. Followed by listing of the 34 men killed. Then Gospel, “Keep your Hand on the Plow and Hold On.”]


That’s it then, probably the longest movie review I’ll ever write… though it isn’t really a movie. It’s a historical presentation and literal exposé fit for support of a special federal people’s grand jury indictment and subsequent special people’s petit jury trial of high Navy officials; impeachment and trial of President Johnson for high treason; indictment/impeachment (as appropriate) and trial of key high officials in Johnson’s administration, such as Defense Secretary Robert McNamara, National Intelligence Chief Walter Rostow, and so on for treason; a host of espionage indictments and trials for people like Mathilde Krim and James Jesus Angleton; and, finally, going after—via the International Criminal Court?—Israeli officials and military commanders who willingly participated in this monstrous war crime on the high seas.

Yes, most of the prosecutions are going to be posthumous.

The video ends with INVESTIGATE THE USS LIBERTY, but we all know that Congress, today, won’t let that happen… which means everything we do for justice has to be legitimized outside the American federal government that the Israelis and the GZM have wholly corrupted and now dominate. No the Global Zionist Matrix is not the sole dominating force for American corruption into one-world collectivist government, but it’s probably the most virulent entity.

My only point here is do not expect anything to come from American government officials. We can appeal to Congress to investigate, as it should have at the time, but that will only happen when federal legislators feel the pressure of an enraged and righteous citizenry. Thus I lay out the following hierarchy for what we should seek to accomplish with the popularization of Sacrificing Liberty:

  1. to end corrupt US government(s) in general
    2. to end corrupt US government caused by the Israel-Zionist takeover
    2a. to indict the current corrupt Israel-Zionist US government per the Liberty
    2b. to properly honor and give tribute to the men and survivors of the Liberty

To whom do we appeal to get the marketing ball rolling? And I mean marketing in a holistic, love-of-country sense. Before the ‘covid’ Great Resetters sprung the fake pandemic on the world, one might have argued for a strategy to show the SL video to high school assemblies and get it into libraries nationwide. That notion is now quaint.

Let’s start at the other end, with the veteran community, certainly the Liberty Veterans’ Association (LVA) will be universally behind the Sacrificing Liberty mission of ending corruption and restoring the Republic to its Constitutional and First Principles foundations. We are probably going to have to, first, internationally squelch the Great Reset and the ‘covid’ big lie, and I believe we are on the threshold of doing just that.

Another idea: use the new Web industry of video conferencing to hold viewing sessions, first validating with the docuseries producers. We need to get all four videos out to the general, though mainly American, public rapidly and securely. Watching Sacrificing Liberty and understanding what happened, then creating an unstoppable meme for righting the wrongs, must become an unstoppable social phenomenon.

Why Justice after all these years? Probably the best answer to that comes from a column I excerpted from Libertysurvivor Joe Meadors here:

“Under our system of government, as individual citizens we have foresworn our individual right to vengeance in return for society’s promise to act on our behalf when a crime is committed against us as individuals. If society fails to act, if society does not live up to its obligation to act on behalf of wronged individuals, then the social contract is broken. Justice is central to our social system. If we cannot depend on society to deliver justice, there is no incentive for individuals to refrain from extracting their own vengeance.”

Or looking at it in a complementary way, from one of the Founders:

“… whenever a government becomes destructive of these ends [rights and justice] it is the right of the people to institute new government laying its foundations on such principles and organizing its powers in such form as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.”

Buy this video, watch this video, share this video. This is about American FREEDOM. Put on your Braveheart countenance and go forth to slay our own times’ sadistic criminal and corrupt power:

Aye, fight and you may die. Run, and you’ll live… at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin’ to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they’ll never take… OUR FREEDOM! — William Wallace, Braveheart

Like Thomas Paine’s Common Sense, let’s use Sacrificing Liberty to shake the Latest New Old World Order of Corruption and Domination to its knees… then end it.


Many women teach the exceptions to biblical womanhood rather than the truth. It’s far easier to teach the exceptions rather than the truth. Rather than teaching women that they are to be quiet in the churches, learn in silence with all subjection, and that they are not to teach men nor be in authority over them, they teach the exceptions in order to teach the opposite of truth. They’ll teach that Phoebe and Priscilla were leaders in a church, and that Mary Magdelene was a preacher. Oh, and the Samaritan woman at the well was a preacher too. Then there’s Deborah the judge. But here’s the truth:

“Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.” (1 Timothy 2:11-14)

“For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.” (1 Corinthians 14:33-35)

“As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.”(Isaiah 3:12)

Instead of teaching that women are to not deprive their husbands sexually but be willingly available to them, they will give all of the exceptions and whataboutisms instead. They will twist this teaching into saying that men are allowed to force themselves upon their wives and even go so far as to say it’s marital rape.

“Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.” (1 Corinthians 7:3-5)

Instead of teaching women that wives are to be submissive to their husbands and yes, even obedient to them, since God has made them head over their wives, they will give all of the exceptions to when they are not to be submissive to them instead of ever teaching them the truth.

“Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.” (Ephesians 5:22-24)

“To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.” (Titus 2:5)

Oh, and forget ever having to submit to a husband who is disobedient to God, they will say. Only submit to a husband who is loving you like Christ loves the church. They fail to teach these verses:

“Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear…Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.” (1 Peter 3:1,2,6).

Instead of teaching women to be keepers at home, they will teach all about all of the women in the Bible who weren’t keepers at home and were, in fact, career women according to them. News flash, there were no career women in the Bible.

“That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home…” (Titus 2:4,5)

“I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.” (1 Timothy 5:14)

Even the Proverbs 31 woman was known for “looking well to the ways of her household,” not for having a career. Everything she did was around her home and for her family. She was not a career woman.

I could go on, but I am sure you’ve got the point. I will continue to teach what God commands that I teach instead of search out all of the exceptions in order to negate the truth of God’s commands for women. The exceptions are far easier to teach rather than the commands to women. What each of you do with these commands from God, women, is up to you. It’s not up to me to have an answer for all of the exceptions and yes, there are exceptions, but it’s all of you who are responsible for obeying God or not. You’re responsible for deciding whether or not you’re an exception to the truth.

I will continue to encourage women to obey God, because I know His will is perfect. I have an desire to water down His commands to make them palatable to women these days. There are too many female teachers/preachers who are tickling women’s ears rather than teaching the truths of biblical womanhood to women. I am not one of them.

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
2 Timothy 4:3,4

Teaching Exceptions Rather Than Truth

The Liberal Tyranny of Feelings and Victimhood

Herland ReportLiberal Tyranny of Feelings: In the increasingly hedonist West, individuals are encouraged to act according to their feelings. If it “feels good,” do it as the pursuit of pleasure is the main goal of life.

But why do we instantly accept the notion that morally borderless societies automatically are the best?

Why do we assume that self-discipline is bad for an individual?

Bill Gates has famously stated that precisely the ability to say no to something he would have liked to do, was his path to success. The ability to concentrate and work diligently depends precisely on self-discipline and strict determination.

Yet, these are the Conservative, traditional values that once made up the fabric of the West, and are now under heavy attack by the Liberal wokeness that grips America.

In an environment where borderlessness is the goal and “instant feelings” encouraged to be followed, it becomes impossible to distinguish between good and evil.

Since values are considered to be relative, and right and wrong determined by how “you feel”, justice itself becomes undefinable, writes historian and founder of The Herland Report, Hanne Herland in her column in the largest Conservative news outlet in the world, World Net Daily.

Liberal Tyranny of Feelings: The modern nihilist denial of evil makes any disciplinary measure problematic, since “evil does not exist”. It was the post war, neo-Marxist philosophy that finalized the break-off from Christian thinking.

The Frankfurter School’s neo-Marxist rebellion against traditional authority eventually led to the 1960’s student revolution. It was a rebellion against Western traditions, the traditional pillars in society and any form of Christian faith.


The point was not for the individual to take personal responsibility for his mistakes, but to liberalize and reform society. The omission of guilt and a “bad conscience” was a focal point in Friederich Nietzsche’s nihilist thinking.

We have ended up with a society that emphasizes sympathy for criminal offenders, rapists, illegal immigrants and others who deliberately break the law.

Law-abiding citizens, on the other hand, are required to “feel sorry for” the offenders.

The neo-Marxist idea is that offenders should not be punished for breaking the law, as punishment itself is regarded a cruelty that will lead to more offenses. This paves the way for anarchy and civil unrest.

Liberal Tyranny of Feelings: Sociologist Peter Berger calls Western relativism and lack of morality a recipe for cultural self-annihilation. Some say this was the very point of the neo-Marxists movement: to weaken the very core of Western strength.

As promiscuity and sexual selfishness now is socially acceptable, it is increasingly hard to form any type of faithful marriage and family nucleus based on a partnership of trust, fidelity and loyalty. As the Orthodox monk, Elder Paisios of Mount Athos, puts it in Spiritual Awakening:

“It is not freedom when we say to people that everything is permitted. That is slavery. Freedom is good when the person can use it appropriately.

Otherwise, it is a disaster. To improve one must have difficulties. Let’s take an example. Look at the child. We limit his freedom from the beginning. When he is first conceived, the poor thing is limited in his mother’s womb and remains there nine whole months.

Later he is born, and immediately they swaddle him in a blanket, they tie him up, as soon as he begins to grow they set a railing, etc. All of this is necessary for him to grow. It appears to take away freedom, but without these protective measures, the child will die in the first moment.”

Western hedonism greatest flaw rests on its failure to recognize that compassion for others is a fundamental component of civil solidarity and genuine happiness. Without empathy society will crumble.


Feelings and psychology is destroying our culture, says Chuck Crismier, an US attorney and syndicated radio host. In a recent YouTube Herland Report interview, he points out that in the 1960s, psychology began to be infused into every aspect of Western culture.

The foundation of the nation used to be on faith.It has been shifted to feelings that gradually replaced faith. At the universities, the whole training of teachers went upside down.

Liberal Tyranny of Feelings. Crismier says: “I was a teacher for nine years in Southern California before I practiced law. They began to train us in what was called the encounter movement. You were to no longer talk about facts and so on. Everything had to be rephrased as “I feel”.”

He points out that if you take the lordship of feelings and implement it over a period of decades, it dramatically affects the life of a country. Feelings have become Lord.

“The media agenda is to promote a godless version of life in the Western world. Anything else is deemed to be hateful. The media is only interested in free speech for themselves and those of their particular godless like. They are interested in accomplishing just the opposite of a society that believes in the Ten Commandments.”

The modern sense of “instant happiness” stands in stark contrast to the old Greeks whose moral philosophy defined happiness as a state of mind that develops over time.

It was regarded as the result of attitudes and virtues acquired in a lifelong search for wisdom. They did not believe that “instant bliss” had much to do with the state of happiness. It is high time to return to the Christian virtues to rekindle the pillars of faith in the decaying West.

The Liberal Tyranny of Feelings and Victimhood

Only TWO Companies, Vanguard And BlackRock, Control The Planet While World’s Richest 1% Own 82% Of World’s Wealth

If you’ve been wondering how the world economy has been hijacked and humanity has been kidnapped by a completely bogus narrative, look no further than this video by Dutch creator, Covid Lie.

only two companies, vanguard and blackrock, control the planet while world's richest 1% own 82% of world's wealth

What she uncovers is that the stock of the world’s largest corporations are owned by the same institutional investors. They all own each other.

This means that “competing” brands, like Coke and Pepsi aren’t really competitors, at all, since their stock is owned by exactly the same investment companies, investment funds, insurance companies, banks and in some cases, governments. This is the case, across all industries. As she says:

“The smaller investors are owned by larger investors. Those are owned by even bigger investors. The visible top of this pyramid shows only two companies whose names we have often seen…

They are Vanguard and BlackRock.

The power of these two companies is beyond your imagination. Not only do they own a large part of the stocks of nearly all big companies but also the stocks of the investors in those companies. This gives them a complete monopoly.

A Bloomberg report states that both these companies in the year 2028, together will have investments in the amount of 20 trillion dollars. That means that they will own almost everything.

Bloomberg calls BlackRock “The fourth branch of government”, because it’s the only private agency that closely works with the central banks.

BlackRock lends money to the central bank but it’s also the advisor. It also develops the software the central bank uses. Many BlackRock employees were in the White House with Bush and Obama.

Its CEO, Larry Fink can count on a warm welcome from leaders and politicians. Not so strange, if you know that he is the front man of the ruling company but Larry Fink does not pull the strings himself.

BlackRock, itself is also owned by shareholders. Who are those shareholders? We come to a strange conclusion. The biggest shareholder is Vanguard.

But now he gets murky. Vanguard is a private company and we cannot see who the shareholders are.

The elite who own Vanguard apparently do not like being in the spotlight but of course they cannot hide from who is willing to dig.

Reports from Oxfam and Bloomberg say that 1% of the world, together owns more money than the other 99%. Even worse, Oxfam says that 82% of all earned money in 2017 went to this 1%.

In other words, these two investment companies, Vanguard and BlackRock hold a monopoly in all industries in the world and they, in turn are owned by the richest families in the world, some of whom are royalty and who have been very rich since before the Industrial Revolution.

Why doesn’t everybody know this? Why aren’t there movies and documentaries about this? Why isn’t it in the news? Because 90% of the international media is owned by nine media conglomerates.

Covid Lie asks, “Who sponsors the organization and press agencies that produce our news? With Project Syndicate, we see the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Open Society Foundation and the European Journalism Centre.

The organizations that bring the news get paid by non-profit organizations, of the same elite that also owns the entire media but also a part of taxpayers money is used to pay them.”

Or, as George Carlin said, “It’s a small club and you ain’t in it.”

So when Lynn Forester de Rothschild wants the United States to be a one-party country (like China) and doesn’t want voter ID laws passed in the US, so that more election fraud can be perpetrated to achieve that end,what does she do?

She holds a conference call with the world’s top 100 CEOs and tells them to publicly decry as “Jim Crow” Georgia’s passing of an anti-corruption law and she orders her dutiful CEOs to boycott the State of Georgia, like we saw with Coca-Cola and Major League Baseball and even Hollywood star, Will Smith.

In this conference call, we see shades of the Great Reset, Agenda 2030, the New World Order.

The UN wants to make sure, as does Schwab that in 2030, poverty, hunger, pollution and disease no longer plague the Earth. To achieve this, the UN wants taxes from Western countries to be split by the mega corporations of the elite to create a brand new society.

For this project, the UN says we need a world government – namely the UN, itself.

And it is clear that the “pandemic” was orchestrated in order to bring this about. This video does an incredible job of explaining how it is all being done.


As you are watching millions fall into poverty because of the corona measures of the past year, even if the greatest economic crisis in history has not affected you yet, it will only be a matter of time until the rippling effects will hit you, as well

This is not fear-mongering but it’s a harsh reality. I also think we might mitigate the damage and may even do better, provided we are informed correctly about our situation.

This is why I would like to show you a few facts you can easily check facts that are of crucial importance.

Less than a handful of big corporations dominate every aspect of our lives. That may seem exaggerated but from the breakfast we eat to the mattress we sleep on and everything we wear and consume in between is largely dependent on these corporations.

Those are huge investment companies that determine the course of money flow. They are the main characters of the play that we are witnessing. I know your time is valuable, so I summarize the most important data.

How does it work?


Let’s take Pepsico as an example. It is the parent company of many soda companies and snack companies. The so-called competitive brands are from factories from a few corporations who monopolize the entire industry.

In the packaged food industry, there are a few big companies, like Unilever, the Coca-Cola Company, Mondelez and Nestlé.

In the picture, you see that most brands in the food industry belong to one of these corporations. The big companies are on the stock market and have the big shareholders in the board of directors.

On sources like Yahoo Finance, we can see detailed company info, such as who the biggest shareholders actually are.

Let’s take Pepsico again, as an example. We see about 72% of stock is owned by no less than 3,155 institutional investors.

These are investment companies, investment funds, insurance companies, banks and in some cases, governments.

Who are the biggest institutional investors of Pepsico? As you can see, only 10 of the investors own together nearly one third of the stock.

The top 10 of investors together amount to a value of $59 billion dollars but out of those ten, only three own more stock than the other seven.

Let’s remember them and look up who owns the most stocks of the Coca-Cola Company, the biggest competitor of Pepsi.

The biggest lump of stock is again owned by institutional investors. Let’s look at the top 10 and start at the bottom six of them. Four of these institutional investors we also saw at the bottom six of Pepsico.

These are Northern Trust, JPMorgan-Chase, Geode Capital Management and Wellington Management. Now, let’s look at the four biggest stock owners. They are BlackRock, Vanguard and State Street.

These are the world’s biggest investment firms, so Pepsico and Coca-Cola are not competitors, at all.

The other big companies that own a myriad of brand names, like Unilever, Mondelez and Nestlé are from the same small group of investors. But it’s not only in the food industry that their names come up.

Let’s find out on Wikipedia, which are the biggest tech companies.


Facebook is the owner of Whatsapp and Instagram. Together with Twitter, they form the most popular social media platforms.

Alphabet is the parent of all Google companies, like YouTube and Gmail but they are also the biggest investor in Android, one of the two operating systems for nearly all smartphones and tablets.

The other operating system is Apple’s IOS. If we add Microsoft, we see four companies making the software for nearly all computers, tablets and smartphones in the world.

Let’s see who are the biggest shareholders of these companies.

Take Facebook: we see that 80% of the stock is owned by institutional investors.

These are the same names that came up in the food industry; the same investors are in the top three.

Next, is Twitter. It forms with Facebook and Instagram the top three.

Surprisingly, this company is in the hands of the same investors, as well. We see them again, with Apple and even with their biggest competitor, Microsoft.

Also, if we look at other big companies in the tech industry that develop and make our computers, TVs, phones and home appliances, we see the same big investors, that together own the majority of the stock.

It’s true for all industries. I’m not exaggerating.


One last example, let’s book a holiday on a computer or smartphone. We search for a flight to a sunny country on Skyscanner or Expedia. Both are from the same small group of investors.

We fly with one of the many airlines. Many of which are in the hands of the same investors and of governments, as is the case with Air France, KLM.

The plane we board is, in most cases a Boeing or an Airbus, also owned by the same names. We book through or AirBnB and when we arrive we go out for dinner and place a comment on Tripadvisor.

The same big investors show up in every aspect of our trip and their power is even bigger, because of the kerosene is from their oil companies or refineries.

The steel from which the plane is made comes from their mining companies. This small group of investment firms and funds and banks are namely also the biggest investors in the industry that dig for raw materials.

Wikipedia shows that the biggest mining companies have the same big investors that we see everywhere.

Also, the big agricultural businesses, on which the entire food industry depends; they own Bayer, the parent company of Monsanto, the biggest seed producer in the world but they are also the shareholders of the big textile industry.

And even many popular fashion brands who make the clothing out of the cotton are owned by the same investors.

Whether we look at the world’s biggest solar panel companies or oil refineries, the stocks are in the hands of the same companies.

They own the tobacco companies that produce all the popular tobacco brands but they also own all big pharmaceutical companies and the scientific institutions that produce medicine.

They own the companies that produce our metals and also the entire car, plane and weapons industry, where a great deal of the metals and raw materials are used.

The own the companies that build our electronics, they own the big warehouses and online markets and even the means of payments we use to buy their products.

To make this video as short as possible, I only showed you the tip of the iceberg.

If you decide to research this with the sources I just showed you, then you will see that most popular insurance companies, banks, construction companies, telephone companies restaurant chains and cosmetics are owned by the same institutional investors we have just seen.


These institutional investors are mainly investment firms banks and insurance companies.

In turn, they, themselves are owned by shareholders and the most surprising thing is that they own each other’s stocks

Together, they form an immense network comparable to a pyramid. The smaller investors are owned by larger investors. Those are owned by even bigger investors.

The visible top of this pyramid shows only two companies whose names we have often seen by now. They are Vanguard and BlackRock. The power of these two companies is beyond your imagination.

Not only do they own a large part of the stocks of nearly all big companies but also the stocks of the investors in those companies. This gives them a complete monopoly.

A Bloomberg report states that both these companies in the year 2028, together will have investments in the amount of 20 trillion dollars. That means that they will own almost anything

Bloomberg calls BlackRock “The fourth branch of government”, because it’s the only private agency that closely works with the central banks.

BlackRock lends money to the central bank but it’s also the advisor. It also develops the software the central bank uses. Many BlackRock employees were in the White House with Bush and Obama.

Its CEO, Larry Fink can count on a warm welcome from leaders and politicians. Not so strange, if you know that he is the front man of the ruling company. But Larry Fink does not pull the strings, himself.

BlackRock, itself is also owned by shareholders. Who are those shareholders? We come to a strange conclusion.

The biggest shareholder is Vanguard. But now he gets murky. Vanguard is a private company and we cannot see who the shareholders are.

The elite who own Vanguard apparently do not like being in the spotlight but of course they cannot hide from who is willing to dig.

Reports from Oxfam and Bloomberg say that 1% of the world, together owns more money than the other 99%. Even worse, Oxfam says that 82% of all earned money in 2017 went to this 1%.

Forbes, the most famous business magazine says that in March 2020, there were 2,095 billionaires in the world.

This means that Vanguard is owned by the richest families in the world. If we research their history, we see that they have always been the wealthiest.

Some of them, even before the start of the Industrial Revolution, because their history is so interesting and extensive, I will make a sequel.

For now, I just want to say that these families of whom many are in royalty are the founders of our banking system and of every industry in the world, these families have never lost power but due to an increasing population, they had to hide behind firms, like Vanguard, which the stockholders are the private funds and non-profits of these families.


To clarify the picture, I have to explain briefly what non-profits actually are. These appear to be the link between companies, politics and media. This conceals the conflicts of interests a bit.

Non-profits, also called “foundations” are dependent on donations they do not have to disclose who their donors are they can invest the money in the way they see fit and do not pay taxes as long as the profits are invested again in new projects.

In this way, non-profits keep hundreds of billions of dollars among themselves according to the Australian government, non-profits are an ideal way of financing terrorists and of massive money-laundering.

The foundations and funds of the families that are the richest stay in the background as much as possible.

For issues that get much attention, the foundation of philanthropists are used that are lower in rank but very rich.

I want to keep it short, so I will show you the three most important ones that connect all industries in the world.

They are the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Open Society Foundation of the controversial multi-billionaire, Soros and the Clinton Foundation. I will give you a very short introduction to show you their power.

According to the website of the World Economic Forum, the Gates Foundation is the biggest sponsor of the WHO. That was after Donald Trump quit USA financial support to the WHO in 2020.

So the Gates Foundation is one of the most influential entities in everything that concerns our health.

The Gates Foundation works closely with the biggest pharma companies, among which are Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson, Biontech and Bayer.

And we have just seen who their biggest shareholders are. Bill Gates was not a poor computer nerd who miraculously became very rich. He’s from a philanthropist’s family that works for the absolute elite.

His Microsoft is owned by Vanguard, BlackRock and Berkshire Hathaway. But the Gates Foundation, after BlackRock and Vanguard is the biggest shareholder in Berkshire Hathaway. He was even the member of the board there.

We would need hours if we wanted to uncover everything in which Gates, the Open Society Foundation of Soros and the Clinton Foundation are involved. They form a bridge to the current situation, so I had to introduce them.


We need to start the next topic with a question. Someone like me, who never makes videos can, with an old laptop objectively show that only two companies hold a monopoly in all industries in the world.

My question is, why is this never talked about in the media?

We can choose daily between all sorts of documentaries and TV programs but none of them cover this subject. Is it not interesting enough or are there other interests at play?

Wikipedia, again gives us the answer. They say that about 90% of the international media is owned by nine media conglomerates.

Whether we take the monopolist Netflix and Amazon Prime or enormous concerns that own many daughter companies, like Time-Warner, the Walt Disney Company, Comcast, Fox Corporation, Bertelsmann and Viacom, CBS, we see that the same names own stocks.

These corporations not only make all the programs, movies and documentaries but also own the channels on which those are broadcast. So, not only the industries but also the information is owned by the elite.

I will show you briefly how this works in the Netherlands. To start with, all the Dutch mainstream media are owned by three companies. The first one is De PersGroep [DPG Media], the parent company of the following brands.

Apart from the many newspapers and magazines, they also own Sanoma, the parent company of some of the big commercial Dutch channels. Many media outlets from abroad, like VTM are also owned by the De PersGroep.

The second one is Mediahuis, one of Europe’s biggest media concerns. In the Netherlands, Mediahuis owns the following brands. Until 2017, also Sky Radio and Radio Veronica were owned by Mediahuis, as were Radio 538 and radio 10.

And then there is Bertelsmann, which is one of the 9 biggest media firms. This company owns RTL, that owns 45 television stations and 32 radio stations in 11 countries. But Bertelsmann is also co-owner of the world’s biggest book publisher, Penguin Random House.

The stocks of these companies are owned by private funds of three families. Those are the Belgian Van Thillo family, the Belgian Leysen family and the German Bertelsmann-Mohn family. All three families sided with the Nazis in the War.

According to Wikipedia, for this reason, the Telegraaf, the Leysen newspaper was temporarily forbidden in the Netherlands after the war.


To complete this overview, look at where the news comes from. The daily news of all these media outlets the diverse news media do not produce news.

They use information and footage from the press agencies, ANP and Reuters. These agencies are not independent. ANP is owned by Talpa, John de Mol. Thomson-Reuters is owned by the powerful Canadian Thomson family.

The most important journalists and editors working for these agencies are members of a journalism agency, like the European Journalism Centre. These are one of the biggest European sponsors of media-related projects.

They educate journalists, publish study books, provide training spaces and press agencies and work closely together with the big corporations, Google and Facebook.

For journalistic analysis and views, the big media use Project Syndicate. This is the most powerful organization in the field.

Project Syndicate and organizations like I mentioned are together with the press agencies.

The link between all worldwide media outlets when news anchors reap from their autocues [teleprompters], chances are that the text stems from one of these organizations. That is the reason that worldwide media shows synchronicity in their reporting.

And look at the European journalism center, itself. Again, the Gates Foundation and the Open Society Foundation.

They are also heavily-sponsored by Facebook, Google, the Ministry of Education and Science and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Who sponsors the organization and press agencies that produce our news? With Project Syndicate, we see the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Open Society Foundation and the European Journalism Centre.

The organizations that bring the news get paid by non-profit organizations, of the same elite that also owns the entire media but also a part of taxpayers money is used to pay them.

In Belgium, there are protests regularly, since Mediahuis and De Persgroep receive millions of euros from the government, while many are abroad…


Well, this was a lot to chew on and I tried to make it as short as I could. I only used examples that I thought were necessary to create a clear overview.

This helps to better understand our current situation, that can shed new light on past events

There will be enough time to dive into the past, but now let’s talk about today but my goal is to inform you about the danger we are in now.

The elite governs every aspect of our lives, also, the information we get and they depend on a coordination, cooperation to connect all industries in the world to serve their interests.

This is done through the World Economic Forum, among others, a very important organization.

Every year in Davos, the CEOs of big corporations meet national leaders, politicians and other influential parties, like UNICEF and Greenpeace.

On the supervisory board of the WEF is former Vice President, Al Gore, our own minister, Sigrid Kaag, Feike Sijbesma, Chairman of the Royal Dutch State Mines and the Commissioner of the Dutch bank, Christine Lagarde, the Chairwoman of the European Central Bank.

Also, politician, Ferdinand Grapperhaus’ son works for the WEF.

Wikipedia says that the annual fee for members is 35,000 euros “but over half of our budget comes from partners who pay the cost for politicians who otherwise could not afford membership.”

According to critics, the WEF is for rich businesses to do business with other businesses or with politicians.

For most members, the WEF would support personal gain instead of being a means to solve the world’s problems.

Why would there be many world problems if the industry leaders, bankers and politicians from 1971 onwards have gathered every year to solve the world’s problems?

Isn’t it illogical, that after 50 years of meetings between environmentalists and the CEOs of the most polluting companies, nature is gradually doing worse, not better; that those critics are right, it’s clear, when we look at the main partners that together make up more than half of the budget of the WEF.

Because these are BlackRock, the Open Society foundation, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and many big companies, from which Vanguard and BlackRock own the stocks.

Chairman and founder of the WEF is Klaus Schwab, a Swiss professor and businessman. In his book, The Great Reset, he writes about the plans of his organization.

The coronavirus is, according to him a great “opportunity” to reset our societies. He calls it “Build Back Better”. The slogan is now on the lips of all Globalist politicians in the world.

Our old society must switch to a new one, says Schwab. The people own nothing but work for the state to have their primary needs met.

The WEF says it’s necessary for the consumption society the elite forced upon us is not sustainable anymore.

Schwab says in his book that we will never return to the old normal and the WEF published a video recently to make clear that by 2030, we will own nothing but we will be happy.


You probably heard of the New World Order. The media wants us to believe that this is a conspiracy theory, yet it has been talked about by leaders for decades.

Not just George Bush Senior, Bill Clinton and Nelson Mandela but also world-famous philanthropists, like Cecil Rhodes, David Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger and even George Soros.

The UN presented in 2015 their controversial Agenda 2030. It is almost identical to the Great Reset of Klaus Schwab.

The UN wants to make sure, as does Schwab that in 2030, poverty, hunger, pollution and disease no longer plague the Earth.

Sounds nice but wait till you read the small print. The plan is that Agenda 2030 will be paid by us, the citizens.

Just like they ask of us now to give away our rights for public health, they will ask us to give away our wealth to battle poverty. These are no conspiracy theories.

It is on their official website. It comes down to this: The UN wants taxes from Western countries to be split by the mega corporations of the elite to create a brand new society. The new infrastructure, because fossil fuels are gone in 2030.

For this project, the UN says we need a world government, namely the UN, itself.

The UN agrees with Schwab that a pandemic is a golden chance to accelerate the implementation of Agenda 2030.

It is worrisome that the WEF and the UN openly admit that pandemics and other catastrophes can be used to reshape society. We must not think lightly about this and do thorough research.
