Redding’s Record Searchlight Allows Editorial Skewing of the Shasta Board Meeting

Redding’s Record Searchlight Allows Editorial Skewing of the Shasta Board Meeting

I wonder if the Record Searchlight, along with all the other disinformation media sources, are forgetting that there is a documented video of the entire Shasta County California Board of Supervisors Hearing of July 15, 2014. No matter how hard the media tries to “spin” it, the video below is what REALLY happened. Aside from one or two random people that misrepresented the issue (inevitable in any public forum), the expertise, credibility, qualifications, and solid reputation of the primary speakers, and most of the volunteer speakers, were entirely overlooked by the Record Searchlight, as was the fact that the Board voted unanimously to investigate geoengineering based on said testimony and concrete data presented therein.

The video speaks for itself.

SHASTA BOARD OF SUPERVISOR’S MEETING

JULY 15, 2014

———————————————————————————————————

“Record Searchlight” – Shasta County’s Most Disreputable News Source

The “Record Searchlight” is not only perpetuating propaganda, but is an accomplice to crimes against humanity by allowing the blatant disinformation editorial below to be published. They have put themselves in a position to be held liable in the future by willfully aiding and abetting this global crime.

After the Record Searchlight’s support of the demeaning response to the moving speeches and compelling testimony given by experts in the fields of science, aviation, medicine, military, agriculture and more, it is clear that they are contributing propagandists, intentionally spreading disinformation.

Hundreds of people in attendance bore witness to three hours of an unprecedented presentation of FACTS, irrefutable data, statistics, laws, and photos, with heartfelt stories by the concerned citizens of Shasta County, CA, many of whom are experts in their respective fields. This included visiting speakers from other regions in the United States, and as far as Spain, to offer support by sharing their experiences with global stratospheric aerosol geoengineering. This is not an issue to be marginalized as the Record Searchlight has chosen to allow.

The “spin” below is the known disinformation tactic of false association using the old CIA coined term “conspiracy theorist” angle to deflect focus from the truth for the purpose of suppressing awareness to prevent public outcry. It’s pure PROPAGANDA. Anyone with the ability for critical thinking can see through this disrespectful, misleading “pseudo-news” editorial, and Record Searchlight’s flagrant disregard for the health and well being of the public, including that of their own readers by supporting the following “editorial”.

Editorial: Time wasted on frivolous conspiracies  6:00 PM, Jul 17, 2014

“Surely you’ve seen those suspicious contrail patterns in the sky, and, by golly, they seem to be increasing and hanging around way too long. Did you know they can cause a variety of ailments from cancer to fibers growing out of your skin to just feeling downright punky? In case you haven’t heard, those contrails – those in the know call them chemtrails – are the result of your government’s attempts to “geoengineer” your environment. So despite the obvious health problems they’re causing for themselves and others, government operatives (we’re not exactly clear on who “they” are) are secretly pumping heavy metals into planes at public airports and military bases and those planes are dispersing the poison into our atmosphere.

And because what goes up must come down, those poisons are dropping back down on all of us, polluting our air and water and causing climate change. Did you know that the drought is a myth? It’s kind of dry this year, but geoengineering is making it seem worse than it is. Gives us a headache just thinking about it.

We suspect some of the Shasta County supervisors are still nursing their own headaches after listening to hours of passionate conspiracy theories at Tuesday’s meeting, which generated what might have been the biggest turnout for a board meeting in recent history. It was bigger, even, than the State of Jefferson presentations earlier this year. People were literally sitting on the floor.

Supervisor Pam Giacomini put the item on the agenda and, as is their collegial custom, the other supervisors went along with it. Giacomini has said her constituents asked to be heard. Chief among them is Dane Wigington of Bella Vista. For years he’s been pushing his theories to anyone who will listen and he runs geoengineeringwatch.org. Wigington orchestrated the lineup of “experts” who spoke to the board Tuesday and guaranteed a big crowd by previewing his presentation at a local tea party meeting Monday night. When it was finally over, Wigington and company were pleased. Elected officials had finally given them a very public platform for their theories. But now they’re spinning the story that the supervisors actually supported them.

That couldn’t be farther from the truth. The supervisors have absolutely no authority or responsibility to conduct an investigation into chemtrail conspiracies. Not one of them said he or she agreed with the theories. Supervisors did vote on a motion — and the vote was unanimous. They’ll forward the information presented by the crowd to the state and federal environmental protection agencies and will send along videos of the four-hour marathon meeting so state and federal officials can see the emotion-packed presentations with their own eyes. Finally, they asked county Resource Manager Rick Simon to take a look at whether the county can test for heavy metals on a nano-level and how much that might cost.

Basically that puts the issue in the staff’s hands from now on. The supervisors gave folks their say and they’re done with it. We think it was pretty generous of the supervisors to listen to the presentation in the first place. They don’t have jurisdiction. They’re busy people and four hours is an awfully long time to devote to something you can’t do anything about. They don’t automatically owe constituents a platform, especially on a half-baked theory that’s repeatedly been debunked by credible scientists.

Think about it. Seriously. Even if mad government scientists didn’t care whether they were poisoning us, why would they do themselves in at the same time? Seen a lot of scientists walking around in gas masks or chemical suits lately? By the way – contrails, even those that spread out into strange patterns and linger longer, have been around since World War II or earlier. There are lots of old books, newspaper articles and other accounts and plenty of authentic photographs to prove it. Next time something like this comes to their attention, even if lots of people seem to support it, we hope the supervisors graciously decline to play host.

That’s exactly what the Redding City Council did Tuesday night in a consensus reached at Missy McArthur’s suggestion. They let their staff know that they do not want to discuss geoengineering or anything related to it. Good call. Here in the real world, we have actually problems that urgently need our leaders’ attention.” — end.

The people’s response:

“Record Searchlight editorial reflects desperation. Mainstream media’s job is to spin or otherwise hide realities that are not helpful to the “official” narrative of the government and government agencies. Marginalizing the legitimate and verifiable concerns of local citizens when those concerns go against “the grain” is business as usual for media corporations. Isn’t it interesting that the Searchlight’s editorial never even mentioned the primary and indisputable concern brought forth by the citizens in this meeting?

There is a recent and indisputable heavy metal contamination all over the North State (and the world). The Supervisors were presented with 30+ lab tests proving this contamination locally, all testing was done at a state certified lab. There is also the issue of very dangerous UV radiation which is not being reported by agencies. This fact is also indisputable and there is peer reviewed science study to back it up. Again, not a word about this from the Searchlight. And the editorial’s mocking of “experts” as if they were not qualified is patently false.

Did they mention the credentials of those speaking? No. No mention of the USFS biologist, the California Fish and Game biologist, the former defense industry expert, local physicians, former commercial pilots, etc.

The roll of mainstream media today in too many cases is to hide the criminal behavior of the government. “Scripps-Howard” owns the Searchlight, this broadcasting corporation has a history of close cooperation with government agencies, this is well documented for anyone that takes the time to investigate. The Searchlight editorial on the July 15th supervisors meeting wreaks of ideology, spin, and bias, this should be a big red flag to all.” — end

Thank you to each and every concerned citizen that stood brave in the face of adversity to address the Board, you are truly commendable and should serve as a shining example to the rest of the world. Our deepest appreciation for your collective efforts to protect humanity and our planet. ~Rebel Siren

~Rebel Siren

 In 1967 the CIA coined the term “conspiracy theorist”. Specifically, in April 1967, the CIA wrote a dispatch which coined the term “conspiracy theories” … and recommended methods for discrediting such theories.  The dispatch was marked “psych” –  short for “psychological operations” or disinformation –  and “CS” for the CIA’s “Clandestine Services” unit. (The dispatch was produced in responses to a Freedom of Information Act request by the New York Times in 1976).
