Joe Stack’s Suicide Letter
by Antenna Wilde
CNN is reporting that Joseph Stack flew a plane into an IRS building in Austin, Texas, because he was anti-government and had an anti-IRS agenda. What they are NOT reporting is that Joseph Stack was furious over big corporations manipulating politicians to pass laws protecting big corporations, engaging in anti-democratic practices that punish smaller businessmen and professionals who pose any threat to the power structure. Then CNN shows advertisements from giant corporations like Charles Schwab, AXPGold, and Chevy, who tell you where to spend your money.
CNN continues to report the anti-IRS agenda and yet, not once have they—or will they—report the anti-corporate points made in the letter. Stack was a capitalist, trying to make it big in engineering software, but was frustrated by large corporations dictating policies that benefit the rich and keep the poor at bay, including any start-ups who pose a threat. Highlighting this point was his complaint regarding the 1986 tax reform act, section 1706.
CNN *reports* that Stack, “Apparently left a suicide note on the internet.”
WRONG, he DEFINITELY left a suicide note on the internet, and the FBI took it down. Why?
The man gave his life to make the points outlined in his letter. Does the mainstream media want to contain the letter to use for their own reporting, to control the viewpoint of the reporting; reporting what opinion is represented and what is NOT represented? Is the FBI taking the position that anyone who sympathizes with Stack is to be considered a potential terrorist? Why did they take the letter down, and yet allow CNN to continually read from it? Why is my website down 2 hours after I posted Stack’s letter?
Alex Melen, whose firm hosts Stack’s website, told The Smoking Gun that FBI agents in Austin and New Jersey, contacted him, requesting that he take the website down. Melen then deleted the site at embeddedart.com, and replaced it with the following statement, “This web site has been taken offline due to the sensitive nature of the events that transpired in Texas this morning and in compliance with a request from the FBI.”
In line with the “Terror Alerts” following 9-11 where the media played the population like a fiddle with color charts (and conveniently before the election) CNN is bombarding us with *Breaking News* about Iran’s nuclear threat:
“Iran may be currently working on secretly developing a nuclear weapon.” Again, Iran MAY be…
And then Rick Sanchez says, “The most significant aspect of this may be the last two words” (nuclear weapon).
But no, the most significant aspect is that they’ve been saying Iran “may” be doing that for years now, and yet CNN chooses to *report* it NOW. They call it “Breaking News” however, there is nothing “breaking” about it. I am quoting one of their own reporters, Matthew Chance, who said, “It (the report) doesn’t site a specific bit of evidence.” Are they reporting the threat of a nuclear missile in Iran to distract people from asking WHY Joe Stack did what he did; and to instead be so afraid of Iran that they’ll be accepting of waging a war on Iran? Is CNN subtly linking Joe Stack’s action to 9-11 in order to control anyone who thinks otherwise? Are these the same methods used to wage war on Iraq: distraction, redirection, and control through fear ?
And Sanchez said, “We choose not to be alarmist.”
