Rob Kall: The Petty Tyrant of OpEdNews

Note to all vatic readers:  I am tired and need a week off.  I have decided to take it this week beginning today.... and will be back on the board on the 16th.  I have put up blogs each day between now and then, with one day on the 11th that only has one, and maybe two if I can do it before today is over.   So, there will be plenty to continue reading about, however, I also want to follow up on research on something that is becoming impossible to find doing it only part time.  I actually think I will have to go to the library to find it.  If I succeed, then that will be the blog on the 16th with the results of my efforts.  If it pans out, its a clear and proven solution to fighting our enemies in the cabal, secret mafia government.  Wish me luck and if you are so inclined, please pray for me.  Thank you for all your support and caring.   

Vatic Note:  How ironic, I put this up because this was one of the publications that would not print or would gutt comments I put up that contained "documented proof" of Rothschild and Israel's various and asundry involvements in this global take down currently underway.  It happened at least three years ago and so I decided to investigate Rob Kall.

It was before I had this blog.  I investigated one of his funding sources and it was heavily tied into Israel supported foundations, the biggest one was out in California, a state that is run by the Nazi, Schwarzenegger.  I tried to post that on the blog and sure enough he gutted it before it could show up on the site.  I gave up after that.

As it turned out, it was the best thing that ever happened to me, since his was the last site on the left that banned and censored me.  It was because of that as a last straw that we started this blog.  Now I get to publish this as an irony of all ironies, and I haven't been banned even once, nor  have I banned anyone even once.

I happen to post a lot of truth from both left and right publications because we are actually all in this mess together, and in so doing I was able to identify a lot of gate keepers on both sides, and even right and left blocking for Israel, which frankly, did suprise me.  I thought at the time it was Bush/Cheney, but have since found out its both parties that work for Israel and the international bankers on the globalizing issues, and the bankers work for the 13 Illum families of which Rothschild is one. 

On the right I was banned by WND, and Godlike Productions, who are right site gatekeepers for Israel and Alternet News, and Huffington Post, who are the same on the left and we got banned for PROVING, not conjecturing, but proving Israel's part in so very many things that had gone down. Alternets funding is from various New York foundations tied in with the bankers, so that explained that one perfectly.

Godlike Productions we were able to tie into the Tavistock Group which explained a lot about them.  Mass mind control and mass psychological manipulation is the forte of the British Tavistock group.  That is how the British were able to get their peoples guns  without a whimper.  GLP was also going after Rumormill News and The Apocalypse, so we were in good company.

Back then, neither right or left sites wanted us talking about either the Israeli's, the international bankers, and especially Goldman sachs.  It was an  automatic ban.  It was time to go our own way.  To this day, 3 years later, we still do not ban, censor, or in anyway inhibit the freedom of speech, why?  Because I get the opportunity to answer their propositions and then the reader can decide for themselves.

I have some respect for peoples ability to decide for themselves after reading both sides.  Its what truth seeking is all about. If you are insecure about your own position and are unable to support it, then I believe that is why these groups ban those with deep truth in their tool boxes.

Now comes one of the most respected news providers in the alternative community, Dr. Fetzer,  and we find that Rob Kall has gotten even worse.  There is no question that there is a protocol when you have a problem that you work out, Dr. Fetzers articles are his owned copy righted work.  He should have been treated with a lot more professionalism than he was.

My opinion is that this is not just about gatekeeping for some of the worst offenders in this game, but its about power at Kall's  petty point of existance with his OpEdNews site.  It is a sure sign of ego or insecurity ladened fear of not being able to stand up to the challenge of making a credible and forthright argument on ones own behalf with respect to some issue.

That is not different than those who do this who are in "real" power and abuse it in the exact same manner, for the exact same reasons and it proves the point that anyone can succumb to ego and power tripping if left in it long enough and that is why a "system of laws" was so important to our founding fathers, so that the law would  prevail over some petty tyrants bruised ego and need to prove his power over others.

And that is true of both left and right, its not unique to one party or the other.  The "RULE OF LAW" is truly what must be preserved at all costs.  Anyway, enjoy the read and  if you are up for  it, try posting on Op Ed News, some of the evidence of Israelis involvement in 9-11 and see what happens. Try the same thing with GLP and mention the Tavistock group and see how fast you get banned.  lol

Ironically, the end result for me was that today, with  my own blog and daily journeys down rabbit holes and research,  If i want good information, today, I never go to those sites that used to ban me.  They are the least informed of what is truly going on in our world today.  That did surprise me and made me realize just how lucky I was that they banned me, so I could move on to the next level of true journalism, especially in researching. My writing skills are not the best, but my research is impeccable.

Rob Kall: The Petty Tyrant of OpEdNews

New questions are being raised about the definition of “journalist” and who should properly qualify, which appears to be one more attempt by the federal government to suppress freedom of speech and of the press and to further abrogate the rights of American citizens under the First Amendment of the Constitution.

A thoughtful discussion of this question has been published in “Journalist Shield Law has Problems” by Jonah Goldberg.  Goldberg is a familiar spokesman for the right, with whom I more often than not disagree.  But when he’s right, he’s right–and in this case Jonah Goldberg is “right-on”:
In response to the acknowledged abuses of his own Justice Department, President Barack Obama has urged Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) to reintroduce legislation for a “journalist shield law.” And in typical Washington fashion, the proposed act would do nothing to prevent the abuses that supposedly make the law so necessary.
We saw a similar response to the horrible Connecticut school shootings last December — a raft of laws that wouldn’t have prevented the tragedy in the first place. It seems that whenever government fails to do what it is supposed to do with the laws already on the books, the answer is to give the government even more power.
Ah, but proponents of journalist shield laws argue that such regulations actually limit the power of government by protecting the First Amendment rights of the press. But that begs the question. A journalist shield law must define who is a journalist and who isn’t.
On May 26, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said on “Fox News Sunday” that the proposed shield law “still leaves an unanswered question. …What is a journalist today, 2013? We know it’s someone who works for Fox or AP, but does it include a blogger? Does it include someone who’s tweeting? Are these people journalists and entitled to constitutional protection?”
Part of the problem stems from Durbin’s apparent suggestion that the First Amendment protects only a free press. It also protects free speech, free assembly, freedom of worship and the right to petition the government for the redress of grievances. We all have these rights. The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward has no more rights than my dentist.
And this is what is wrong with the idea of a federal shield law. One proposed version of the law says a “covered person” is someone who “for financial gain or livelihood, is engaged in journalism.” In other words, a journalist is a professional. So, the government gets to decide who’s a “real” journalist. That’s a horrifying expansion in government authority.
Goldberg provides a refreshing response to the threat posed by the federal government, where FOX News and the major media increasingly function as conduits for propaganda and disinformation posing as “news”, there is another–more subtle and less obvious–threat from the left, which appears to be rooted in a commitment to “political correctness” that more often than not functions as a filter to suppress the publication of opinions and research that contradict or undermine the positions prevailing within the left wing about gun control, 9/11, Sandy Hook, the Boston bombing and other atrocities.

The Hartwell Rejection

A striking example of this this attitude emerged when OpEdNews, which promotes itself as “Progressive * Tough * Liberal”, rejected an article submitted by Dean Hartwell about 9/11.  I usually side with the opinions featured there, where I have had a generally cordial relationship with Rob Kall, its editor, who had since 2007 published 43 articles of my own, including a number about 9/11.  So I was taken aback to discover that his article, which I regarded as a valuable contribution to 9/11 studies, was not accepted.  I was so distressed by the explanation Dean was given–”We regretfully inform you that we do not accept any more 9/11 stories”–that I invited him to co-author an article about left-wing gatekeeping at Veterans Today.

Indeed, Dean Hartwell had published even more articles with OpEdNews than had I–some 65 at last count–including at least five about 9/11, Flight 93 and the reports about its having landed in Cleveland, which is a fascinating dimension of 9/11 research. The very clear and succinct fashion in which Dean, who has a background in the law, lays out the case for what it would take to refute the prima facie case that the passengers who were alleged to have died on 9/11 appear to be fabrications is most certainly not something that OpEdNews has ever addressed, which, considering the importance of 9/11 as the pivotal event of the 21st Century, it surely ought to have published in the interests of truth and of the American people.

The Editor’s Retaliation

The publication of our article with the title, “Left-Wing Gatekeepers: From Noam Chomsky to Rob Kall?”, apparently did not go down well with the editor of OpEdNews and I discovered that I could no longer publish there.  Indeed, I was not even being allowed to post comments on articles, but my “Author’s Page” and articles remained intact. My next contact with him arose when I was advised that I was being assailed in the comments of an article by Rob Kall himself titled, “A Conspiracy Conspiracy Theory”, lambasting research that could be qualified as “conspiracy theory” on a variety of specious grounds:
I am not stuttering. I think that there are a group of people who milk the trust and open-mindedness of some, the distrusting and suspicious and the outright paranoid. These conspiracy perpetrators actually conspire to create new conspiracy theories for a number of reasons.
Dave Weigel has written a brilliant article on this for Salon, titled, Don’t Blame The Sandy Hook Truthers. It broaches the idea that there now are all kinds of truthers– 911, birthers, Sandy Hook…
That got me thinking how there are different motivations for people to promote conspiracy theories.
-They distract people from looking at problematic aspects of cases that are real, but less sexy than the conspiracy theories.
-They make investigation into cases that are totally legitimate seem less credible and more batshit crazy. Legit investigations get thrown in with the crazy stuff.
-Some professional conspiracy theorists and websites make money or get free travel from this– from books, speaking, website traffic that’s converted into ad revenue.
-They use the conspiracy theories to sell some other aspect of their agenda. There is a finge group of 911 Truthers who are flaming anti-semites. Birthers are mostly right wingers and some racists. Dave Weigel’s Salon article addresses the latest Sandy Hook Truther garbage.
This rant reminded me of the CIA advisory to its operatives on how to attack critics of The Warren Report. What I noticed at the time was not his strident denunciation of those who are conducting research on Sandy Hook–on which, I am quite sure, Rob Kall has done no research–but that Rob Kall is committing the fallacy of begging the question by taking for granted a proposition that requires independent investigation and to be established on the basis of logic and evidence.  

Unless we investigate what we are being told, we cannot know whether what we are being told is true or false. Since I was being attacked by others in the comments, I believed that I was entitled to respond.  So I wrote to him and received his reply:

I did not notice at the time, but my “Author’s Page” had been rendered invisible.  If I had paid more attention to his attack on conspiracy theories, I probably could have anticipated that his venom would be expressed by taking an escalating series of measures (1) by denying my right to submit, (2) by making my “Author’s Page” inaccessible and (3) by actually making my articles themselves disappear.  I had, after all, committed the grotesque offense of publishing a series of articles about Sandy Hook, which he knew had occurred as the “official accounts” had portrayed–in spite of massive evidence to the contrary.

I have no doubt at all that Rob Kall could not marshall a rational response to the data that I have reported in collaboration with my research associates about Sandy Hook in “An Open Letter to FAU Faculty, Staff and Administration about Sandy Hook”, “The Nexus of Tyranny: The Strategy behind Tucson, Aurora and Sandy Hook” (with Dennis Cimino), “Sandy Hook: Huge Hoax and Anti-Gun ‘Psy Op’”, not to mention “Did Mossad death squads slaughter children at Sandy Hook?”, in which I explain that my first article for PressTV had its title changed, where it was originally, “Sandy Hook: The rest of the story”.

Just for the record, I only believe that the Mossad was involved to the extent that it runs DHS. The evidence that has become available even suggests that no children at all were killed at Sandy Hook! This appears to have been a DHS event, where DHS vehicles were seen in the vicinity before the “shooting” went down; the Connecticut State Emergency Communications Network was taken over earlier in the morning; there was no rush of EMTs to get those little bodies to the hospital, where qualified physicians could determine whether they were dead or alive–and their bodies were allegedly left in a classroom and removed in the dead of night.

  Even Steve Pieczenik has confirmed that Sandy Hook was a “false flag” attack that was contrived and designed to promote gun control, especially the confiscation of assault weapons that could be used to resist the coming attempt to take control of the United States by the Department of Homeland Security. I have published article after article about this, including “From America to Amerika: The End Game” (with Dennis Cimino), “Homeland Security: Preparing for Massive Civil War”, and “Fusion and Fear in America: The Non-Existent ‘Terrorist Threat’”, not to mention “Why Gun Control is bad for America”.

My Disappearing Articles

None of these articles was published at OpEdNews but at Veterans Today, where there is no “filter” of political correctness that constrains the exercise of freedom of thought and of freedom of inquiry.  It never dawned on me that the editor of an on-line journal, such as OpEdNews, would actually DELETE ARTICLES that had been published there.  That is about as unprofessional, unethical and disgusting as it gets.  There is an implicit contract between an editor of a journal like OpEdNews and his contributors that he will treat them with respect. As a professional scholar, I find it difficult to express my dismay as this exchange with Rob Kall unfolded:

At some point in time–relatively recently–Rob Kall, the editor of OpEdNews–decided to retaliate against a contributor to the journal he edits. His actions in this case are completely unprofessional and abrogate an implied understanding between any editor and any contributor to an on-line journal like OpEdNews.  I have extensive editorial experience in philosophy and such an act would be regarded as a justification for removing an editor from that position.  It distorts the history of the journal by interrupting the record of its publications and severs links to articles that have permeated the internet.  This is a disgraceful performance by the editor of OpEdNews.
Bear in mind, ALL 43 OF THESE ARTICLES WERE ACCEPTED FOR PUBLICATION IN OpEdNews. What happened in the meanwhile that the editor who was the editor when they were accepted should abruptly dismiss the author and then delete the articles themselves? If Rob Kall had a problem with me that only surfaced with the passage of time, then he had to right to reject any future submissions from me. But he did not have the right to delete articles that he himself had accepted in the past. That was a puerile act of punishment, probably for my having called him out as a “left-wing gatekeeper”. He never had the right to then delete my author’s page or the complete archive of forty-three articles that I had published there.
Drawing inferences about motives can be complex and uncertain, but the responsibilities of editors toward authors are not subtle or difficult to define.  This action was unprofessional and inexcusable.  Other contributors to OpEdNews are entitled to know that they, too, could be subjected to this kind of retribution for aggravating the editor of their journal.  If Rob has been subjected to pressure by the ADL, for example, because I have asserted that Israel had a role in 9/11–for which I have been attacked as an “anti-Semitic 9/11 conspiracy theorist”–that might explain it. If that is true, he should be made of sterner stuff. But when he’s wrong, he’s wrong–and in this case, Rob Kall is disgustingly wrong.
