Any leader that hints at sharing the wealth and helping the people will be targeted.
In Toronto, we had Jack Layton and Rob Ford actors that were similarly removed from the public scene.
These are my favorite type of posts. Good job Mark!
I think this is a widely-used model, not only in remote places like Chile, but in the United States as well. We saw John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King and John Lennon all idealized, lionized, and then, like Allende, assassinated. All of these assassinations were fake, we now know. That is not the point – each man was but a scoundrel used to raise up our hopes for meaningful change and then to crush that hope.
That, to me, is the meaning of 9/11/73 – crushing hope. It is a common treatment used everywhere to control us, keep us in chains.
Even though the numbers are marked with spookery (11), I think the idea is right. Dying (while on top – and promoting your upcoming death for a couple of years beforehand) is great for business.
TORONTO — Fans of the Tragically Hip flocked to the band’s music as they mourned the death of singer Gord Downie, which drove a huge boost in sales, streams and radio play.
Eleven albums by the Kingston, Ont., rockers climbed onto the Billboard Canadian Albums chart for the week that ended Oct. 19. It was the previous day that Downie’s family announced the Hip frontman had died.
Overall sales for the band’s catalogue spiked 1,000%, rising to a combined 11,000 equivalent units from 1,000 units the previous week. The chart is tallied by Nielsen Music and is based on both physical and digital sales along with a calculation of on-demand streams.
I wish they timed this death better – if it’s not as we are told. Vegas owns the media right now, so this amazing rocker deserved a few days of his own.
Tom Petty, an old-fashioned rock superstar and everyman who drew upon the Byrds, the Beatles and other bands he worshipped as a boy and produced new classics such as Free Fallin,’ Refugee and American Girl, has died. He was 66.
It’s been 40 years – and this is still one of my favorite concerts of all time.
The power of celebrity has never had a better example than Elvis to this day.
I have little doubt that as Elvis slid down into playing local state fairs, they figured this most manipulated figure was worth more “dead” than alive. Boy were they right. As usual, they made up a story that defies logic and made him look like a model of debauchery. I doubt he was, although his last TV special didn’t showed an out of shape, slurring singer (I still enjoy the show below though).
Learn how to kill yourself in room 1136 (9/11) with these easy to understand pictures.
If anyone still believes that this was anything other than a staged event then they are sadly mistaken.
New details released by Detroit officials Tuesday under the Freedom of Information Act shed additional light on what happened the night rock star Chris Cornell hanged himself inside Room 1136 of the MGM Grand Casino Hotel.
Glad the dead celebrity program DCP is catching on. On first glance, the Lady Di/David Furnish seems like LALA land unnecessary misdirection to a good idea, but I’ll have to see more on this.
I never heard the Prince sister story before either. That would be once again in your face deception.
I’ve always said there’s no need for storing these DCP’s in Bermuda/St Barts or other Crown island. They’re probably right where you’d least expect them – in front of us, hidden by your own incredulity.
