Fifty years ago, the CIA used the term "conspiracy theory" as a weapon to dismiss the truths expressed by critics of its murder of President Kennedy, and those of Malcom X, JLK, and RFK. All the media echoed the CIA line. While the term is still used to dismiss and denounce, control of the mainstream media is so complete today that every evil government action is immediately seconded, whether it be the lies about the attacks of September 11, 2001, the wars against Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, etc., the coups disguised as color revolutions in Ukraine, Venezuela, Hong Kong, the downing of the Malaysian jetliner, drone murders, the Iranian "threat," the looting of the American people by the elites, the alleged sarin gas attacks in Syria, the Putin bashing and the Russia-gate farce, the "criminals" Assange, Manning, Snowden—everything. The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, Fox News, the Washington Post, CNN, NPR, etc.—all are stenographers for the deep state.

Horror Films
Oh, the Horror! One Christian’s Analysis of a Controversial Genre
— “[T]he unfortunate reality that must be acknowledged is that much of the zeitgeist has come to be dominated by horror films that exploit rather than examine — and there is a difference. Even Scripture employs what might today be seen as “horror tropes,” such as the strange séance carried out by the witch of Endor, as recorded in 1 Samuel 28, or the frightening appearance of the Gadarene demoniac in the synoptic Gospels.16 But Scripture does not put the emphasis on the horrific for the sake of horror — that is as shallow as the sentimentality that trades on emotion for the sake of emotion. The way in which the horrific is handled, the tone and attitude toward the material, makes the difference. It must be horror “with a message,” or horror “with a purpose.””
