Nine percent luxury tax paid on toilet paper in Champaign, Illinois! Gideon Welles complains that press favors sensationalism and alarming predictions! CIA declassifies Nixon, Ford daily briefings!
Thus reads the description for my latest video, “CIA Declassifies Briefings”, published to YouTube on September 30, 2016. The clip, which clocks in at 5 minutes and 41 seconds, can hopefully be viewed at the top of today’s blog entry.
In Champaign, Illinois, a 9 percent sales tax is added on to items like dish detergent and toilet paper. Food, such as apples, is only taxed at 1 percent. But aren’t dish detergent and toilet paper necessities? So why are they being taxed here as if they were luxury items?
Thoroughly disgusted, you turn for solace to The Diary Of Gideon Welles. He was Secretary of the Navy under presidents Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson. In the Welles’ diary you find:
August 10, 1862, Sunday… Sensation items are the favorite ones of the press. Alarming predictions delight their readers…
Aha! Sensation items are needed! Give the public what it wants!
Sadly, not much of sensation items could be found, except for a Pravda video (included in my clip) about “CIA declassifies briefings” for presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford. Presidential Daily Briefings (PDBs) for Nixon and Ford had been kept secret – until now! Hints of CIA covert operations are revealed!
