The media are among the “THEY” who are telling us lies, and Pat Shannan lays it all out in no uncertain terms. The title says it all . . . Everything They* Ever Told Me Was a Lie. Completing a work that took four years, Shannan’s book is a blockbuster, spanning the past half-century and covering the unknown facts about the JFK assassination and the still-growing Apollo 11 controversy of the 1960s to 9/11 and the Obama citizenship hoaxes.
Everything They* Ever Told Me Was a Lie explains from the outset exactly who “they” are (only the newest of AFP readers wouldn’t already know) and how a cooperative news media, by ignoring facts and refusing to address pertinent questions, allow outrageous lies to meld into definite, indisputable truths.
It is bad enough that we cannot trust our politicians to tell us the truth—an age-old problem—but when a cooperative news media not only fails to investigate and continues to perpetuate these fabrications, even after the reported facts have long been proven wrong, a whole nation of people winds up totally confused by a corrupted few.
Investigative journalist, author and radio show host Pat Shannan has been in pursuit of the truth for nearly half a century. Intrigued by the deception and on-going cover-up of the JFK assassination, he began to notice a similar pattern in the 1968 murders of Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy. Then he found altered and intentionally fabricated FBI official reports regarding these and other cases and began to notice the cooperative news media ignoring blatant and pertinent facts as well.
The films of Ronald Reagan exiting the Washington Hilton clearly show Secret Service Agent Tim McCarthy being shot by someone other than John Hinckley, Jr. And what are the odds that the greatest potential beneficiary of Reagan’s demise would be the close friend and business associate of John Hinckley, Sr.? Why did the wounded Reagan arrive at the hospital 15 minutes after Jim Brady, when his limo left the scene five minutes before Brady’s ambulance?
How could Arthur Bremer fire seven shots from a five-shot revolver the day he nearly killed Gov. George Wallace and three innocent bystanders in 1972? Why was Pat Tillman murdered in Afghanistan in 2004?
Shannan has long maintained that the hidden power behind the expansion of the central government has been the unconstitutional use of legal tender that is produced at will, and herein proves his case. He also shows that government plots survive because of little or no investigation, and only through the aid of a cooperative news media can such ridiculous conspiracy theories as the 9-11 official story not only survive but thrive.
With his latest work, Everything They Ever Told Me was a Lie, Pat Shannan shows us examples of myriad goings-on behind the scenes and how nearly every story of importance is carefully crafted into a benefit for the power elite and a detriment to “We the People.”
The corporate news media’s “Investigative Reporting” of today actually amounts to merely discovering and publishing the best words and pictures to most benefit the on-going cover-up of the current problem.
For Shannan, no subject is off limits. In this book Pat takes a look at the mainstream cover stories for some of the biggest events of the 20th century and then provides us with the REAL STORY. He examines these top stories and a lot more such as: the censored history of lawful money vs. the FED’s counterfeit legal tender; the unverifiable past of Barack Obama, the actual two Oswalds; George H. W. Bush’s close family connection to the would-be assassin of Ronald Reagan; the inside forces working with OKC bombers; LBJ’s shocking admission of assassination involvement to his mistress; how “they” framed James Earl Ray, Sirhan Sirhan, L. Harvey Oswald (rather than Lee H.) and actually murdered Vince Foster and former NFL football star turned fighting patriot Pat Tillman.
Someone, speaking of the wars of mankind, said a long time ago that “the winners get to write the history.” That being true, those writers win again with each reading by anyone and will continue to win until someone such as Pat Shannan comes along to deracinate the lies and supplant them with truth.
