Update: Fixed the Jay/McGovern interview part 2.

The Most Blatant Coup in History

Or, so says Ray McGovern.



* [00:02:12] it is not Snowden's 'visa' that is cancelled by the US, but his Passport. This is what traps him in one of the Moscow airports. I correct myself later.

* [00:19:44] 'twas not Snowden who was manhandled out of Ecuador's embassy in London, but Assange. Annother slip up from which a recovery is quickly made.

A special resource

Daniel Sheehan's Lectures at the Romero Institute

You'll have to do a little scrolling and downloading. The core issue is the person[s] who uploaded the videos were not consistent in titling; aka the handling of metadata.

I advise two courses. The first serves as historical background. The real data is in the second course, but shoulder the burden of the first, if you can handle Danny's lecture style. There is data everywhere.

Taking the time to watch all of this, given many hours a day, is weeks. But, don't do that. Take more time. Use a whole winter.

  1. the Trajectories of Justice course. Watch out, the titling is inconsistent. Start "Rulers of the Realm Introduction: Daniel Sheehan - 3-29-2016" [xAcT8Nt_j0Q] with the end "JFK #20: Rulers of the Realm thesis part 2 Dec 5 2013" [7jhXX5yisd0]. I think. Check yourself, please.

  2. the "significant cases" course. Start "Eisenstadt v. Baird: 4-10-2012 Daniel Sheehan" [04cs5XQvILM], end "The Big Picture - What we do from here: 6-5-2012 Danny Sheehan" [dgUuq4ClwwY]
