THE MATRIX: the newspaper of truth

Recruiting for The Matrix:

New Newspaper about Peace and Truth 

We are starting a full color, high impact, socially empowering, spiritually curious, aggressively wonderful newspaper, social network, and website. We are about peace, truth, non-violence, social transformation, and personal improvement. We  break down barriers between ideologies. We free minds. It’s time to create a whole new reality.

We are looking for writers, artists, people to help out, people to sell ads, people with a deep commitment to social change. We are pro-freedom and pro-truth. We are pro-entrepreneurship, without being in favor of corporate capitalism, imperialism, and war. We are against domestic surveillance. We lean towards a new politics: committed to democracy, and deep freedom. We are skeptical of power, influenced by anarchism, civil libertarianism, but also interested in class consciousness. We are seeking to build a coalition of independent third parties. We aim to unite people around the simple ideals- peace, truth, freedom- these ideals forge the future.  Some of us were involved Occupy Wall Street, and want to take that urge to a whole new level of breakthrough. Occupy showed us that the masses are on our side. The new Bitcoin currency shows that free market mechanisms can support something disruptive that bypasses the economic status quo. It’s time for our society to experience some empowering, non-dogmatic, universal spiritual and economic development. It's time for the brilliance of fiery heroes.

Here's an excerpt from our upcoming story on Bitcoin:
Roger Ver, a charismatic Bitcoin investor known informally as “Bitcoin Jesus”  recently told the LeWeb 2013 conference, “One of the things governments around the world do currently is they finance their wars and the things that they do through inflation. The just print money for whatever it is that they want to spend it on. If the world were using Bitcoin that would no longer be a possibility. If you’re opposed to governments inflating money to pay for wars around the world, Bitcoin should be something you’re interested in.”

We plan to use a cooperative model. Once this project gets going, it will walk its talk: We will share the profits of each issue among the writers, artists, editors, designers, and ad sales people who help build the momentum. We will use worker democracy and consensus, as much as possible. We will also give due respect to the intense energy of individual artistic vision. We will be pragmatic and seek to get out one paper a month, for the first year, and grow it from there. As the newspaper grows in value, contributors will have a share in its profits, and ownership, through shares.

Peoples’ talents are the true assets. We are looking for people who want to get to know us, and then make a commitment to the project.

Our Philosophy of Small Business Advertising:

I’m Sander Hicks, an activist small business owner, independent publisher and licensed NYC contractor.

I know that advertising can help your small business. To get new customers, you need a chance to contact 50,000 people at once. We are here to help.

I used to run the Vox Pop Café in Brooklyn. I worked with my own local newspaper, New York Megaphone, and put a lot of little ads, in each issue of the paper. We offered coupons and discounts. We did it in every issue, and the Megaphone printed a ton of papers. It worked. Our revenue went up 45% in a year.

At The Matrix, we will work with our readers, our social networks, our email lists, our communities. We will do live events and have our advertisers meet our readers. We want long-term relationships with people, our coworkers, and our advertisers.

As Publisher of The Matrix, I will do everything I can to help your business. You support our paper, and we will use everything we can to help you win new customers.  We have 3,000 friends on facebook. We are a social network.

This is a great opportunity for those who embrace what we stand for, and share our vision. 

Let’s build this.

Fetzer Takes on Boston Bombing

I used to be professor Jim Fetzer's publisher. We did a book that took a hard look at the timley and 
mysterious plane crash death of Senator Paul Wellstone.

Ten years later, it's good to see that he's still at it, taking on the Boston Bombing in 
his new book, below. 

(Sure, some people don't love some of the directions he's taken in the always contentious fields of 9/11 Truth, but
let's put that aside for a moment, and look at Boston.)
Even if the 9/11 Truth Movement is recharging right now, maybe it's time for.... Boston Truth!


By Mike Palecek 

The Boston Marathon bombing of April 15th is "the most obvious 'false flag' attack in U.S. history," Dr. Jim Fetzer, a distinguished university professor and author of 20 books on artificial intelligence and cognitive science, says. The attacks, near the finish line of the annual event, killed three spectators and injured 264 more, forcing a halt to the race.

"The Boston bombing was an obvious staged event…where the perps were not those two (Tsarnaev) brothers but members of the paramilitary company Craft International," of Dallas, Tex., Fetzer writes in the new book "The Dynamic Duo"(CWG Press). Craft is a private mercenary firm that provides mercenaries to clients, and trains military fighters.

The official story is that the Tsarnaev brothers had pressure cooker bombs in their backpacks and left them (to explode), but Fetzer says, "its pretty bizarre these all these paramilitary guys are running around with big black backpacks and there's a picture of the exploded backpack that has a white square on it which is identical to the black backpack with a white square on it worn by one of the paramilitary (Craft) guys, and there's photos showing the surviving brother (Dzhokhar) leaving the scene apparently with his backpack still on." 

Fetzer said photographs show Craft personnel on the scene with backpacks that "were a match for one that exploded" but that the two backpacks that did explode "are not the same" as the one Dzhokhar was wearing." He goes on to say "They had Craft International paramilitary guys out there planting the bombs in full view…you can see them planting the bombs in the film." 

Fetzer also said he has videos of older brother Tamerlan being arrested and put naked into a police vehicle. One witness reportedly saw the police run over him repeatedly with an SUV."And after he's been arrested, he turns up dead, where his body has been brutalized and mutilated. Who else could have done this than the police?"

Alternative media, Fetzer said, "turned up photos of men in military garb and distinctive baseball caps that featured a skull logo, talking on cell phones and carrying backpacks that looked just like those that had been used in the bombings."

(Craft International's website explains its skull logo reflects its late founder Chris Kyle's "life and service," "mainly honors his fallen teammates" and is intended "to strike fear in the enemy.")

Fetzer writes there is no apparent motive for the brothers to plant bombs at the Boston marathon "but there is an urgent need for the Department of Homeland Security and FBI to concoct some fantastic scenario that will draw attention from the public's dawning realization…that Chechen terrorists had nothing to do with it."

"The Dynamic Duo" book may be ordered from Palecek is editor of the book.
