TIN FOIL HAT MEDIA, BIG BROTHER, AND THE MYTH OF CONSPIRACY “THEORY”
By Paul McGuire

For decades we have heard our concerns about Big Brother-style surveillance mocked as a “conspiracy theory” by the media. But now we see it is the media who have been wearing tin foil hats all this time, not the conspiracy theorists!
The fact that various government agencies have been monitoring our cell phone calls, Emails, faxes, Facebook, Twitter, and a wide range of search engines like Google should not even be remotely surprising to any journalist, media commentator, politician or average American. Yet the television commentators, radio personalities, print journalists, and politicians act completely surprised that certain government agencies are monitoring all phone calls through companies like Verizon. Just last night, I watched some supposedly “bright” young reporter from a major network act as if he had actually uncovered something.
As far back as the 1950s with the creation of ECHELON various governments, including the U.S. have been spying on telephone calls, radio, satellite, microwave, shortwave, fiber-optic and other communications systems. This has been public knowledge and has openly been reported in a variety of sources. Any journalist or politician should be aware of this. Nothing was hidden; it has all been out in the open. That is why H.G. Wells, science fiction author and head of British intelligence during World War I referred to it as “an open conspiracy.” Note that H.G. Wells and the leading intellectuals of the Fabian Socialists used the term, “conspiracy.”
In addition, authors and researchers such as I have been talking about this for over 35 years and no one censored us. In fact, those of us who were doing our homework were very aggressively trying to alert people to what was happening. I wrote about this in my books and articles and spoke about it in major conferences that received extensive and international television coverage. The same journalists, politicians, academics, and certain segments of the general public who have hysterically screamed “conspiracy theory” anytime this subject was even hinted at have now suddenly discovered it after sixty years of its existence!
“Skeptics,” who are the real true believers (in the status quo and the official line) hysterically scream “conspiracy theory” every time anything is brought up that is a threat to their appalling ignorance. Yet now they are beginning to realize that government surveillance of citizens is real…the things we conspiracy “theorists” have been trying to tell them for the last fifty years are true. But all along the majority of the key players in media, politics, entertainment, and religion secretly knew it was true and were part of a conspiracy to conceal it from the American public. The proof for that statement is a quote from David Rockefeller, speaking at the June, 1991 Bilderberger meeting in Baden, Germany (a meeting also attended by then-Governor Bill Clinton and by Dan Quayle):
“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years.”
He went on to explain:
“It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries.”
