The 6 Cartoons a US Newspaper Doesn’t Want You to See

Leave a comment

(FAIR) The work of Rob Rogers, longtime political cartoonist for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, has been notably absent from his paper’s opinion page during this past week. Aside from a cartoon criticizing the trade war posted on Tuesday, June 5, the most recent of Rogers’ drawings appeared last Thursday, May 24.

So where was Rogers all of last week? He did not simply “have the day off,” as printed in last Tuesday’s issue of the Post-Gazette.

Keith Burris, the Post-Gazette’s editorial director since March, when it merged its editorial board with the co-owned Toledo Blade, refused to publish six of Rogers’ cartoons in a row. Four were directly critical of President Donald Trump, and two alluded to racism.

Despite not being published in the Post-Gazette, Rogers continued posting these cartoons on Twitter, as he does with all of his work.

May 25’s cartoon portrayed a referee calling penalties for exercising free speech, disrespecting the troops and eliciting Trump tweetstorms, in light of the NFL’s announcement of their new rule dictating players must stand during the national anthem:

USS Liberty The Unmentioned Parts – Survivor Richard Larry Weaver 51 Years of Justice Denied

Published on May 30, 2017

Today, June 8, 2018 is the 51st anniversary of the attack on the USS Liberty.
A US warship torpedoed the USS Liberty,
President Lyndon B Johnson wanted the ship sunk,
It took 17 hours for help to arrive, Gag orders were issued to stop the survivors talking.

Erasing the Liberty:

That subject line could be from today, but it was 51 years ago—June 8, 1967—when Israel did attack an unarmed and unarmored U.S. Navy ship in international waters, the USS Liberty (AGTR-5), killing 34 and wounding 174.

The only major difference is that the rescue aircraft—scrambled from two U.S. aircraft carriers around 15 minutes flying-time away from the Liberty—were recalled twice, first by the U.S. Secretary of Defense, and then by U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson.

The Liberty was forced to languish for nearly 18 hours before the U.S. Sixth Fleet was allowed to assist the stricken vessel and its crew.

You know little or nothing about this because they don’t want you to know, they being not just Israel, but the U.S. government, who instituted and still maintains this cover-up.

Incredibly, the Liberty and her crew are the most decorated in U.S. Navy history for a single engagement, a fact every American schoolchild should know, but they’re not allowed to know, as “they” have erased this history from our books and movies, and defaced the men who were forced to endure the massacre.

The attack was—says Liberty survivor Phil Tourney—not just an attack against his ship and the U.S. Navy, but an attack against every American—past, present and future.

It was an act of war. And Israel was allowed to walk away, scot-free, the consequences of which the world is still suffering from today.

 

New Documentary: The Guardians

“The Guardians,” a 1:44 minute documentary by Billie Mintz about Las Vegas’ best kept secret, will soon be released in Canada. The last one-third of the film focuses on private guardian Jared Shafer and his band of crooked Clark County Family Court Judges including William Voy, Charles Hoskin, and Jon Norheim. This riveting film, when aired by a US TV network, should trigger the FBI and DOJ into prosecuting those who, up until now, have been protected by a corrupt local political system including a police department that has ignored dozens of complaints of elder abuse and exploitation by the above named protected individuals.
Steve Miller writes internationally syndicated columns on organized crime and political corruption for AmericanMafia.com, The Vegas Voice, and the the Canada Free Press.
