Did Elvis Presley Made Secret Espionage Missions During the Cold War?

Col. Tom Parker’s request for a “draft deferment” may be a clue, but did the “King of Rock ‘n’ Roll” did espionage work for the US government during the Cold War?

If Elvis Presley did actual espionage work in behalf of the US government during the Cold War, it may have likely happened during his U.S. Army conscriptions days while being assingned as a Jeep mechanic in Freiburg of what was then West Germany. Given the easy acces to the Sudetenland – which was then largely under the control of the then Soviet Union, Elvis Presley could have easily performed top secret espionage work given his “celebrity status” at the time. But is there any proof to this? 

Given that Hollywood has been very cooperative with the US government ever since it set up the business of movie-making, it may have been likely that the Hollywood movie industry made “disinformation films” about Elvis Presley’s “secret spywork in the then communist era Sudetenland”. The 1984 movie Top Secret may have been just a spoof of every Elvis musical with US DoD cooperation ever made - i.e. Elvis' G.I. Blues - but it did its job of making the idea of “Elvis in the Sudetenland” spying for the US government to gather vital Cold War era intel somewhat improbable in the eyes of the 1960s era KGB. 

Hollywood also has a very good track record of providing cover for US government sanctioned espionage work that might have been uncovered by your typical spook. The 2012 movie Argo that stars Ben Affleck on the secret mission done by then CIA master-of-disguise Tony Mendez shows details of how the US government rescued the US Embassy personnel in Iran that were trapped during the 1979 Iranian Islamic Revolution that was only declassified back in 1998 in time for the then US President Bill Clinton to give commendations to Tony Mendez and the Canadian embassy personnel in Iran at that time who helped. It may have been very likely that we may be seeing an “Elvis in the Sudetenland” movie once the US government declassifies the details for the general public to see.

Denver International Airport: Conspiracy Theorists Nexus Du Jour?

Billions of dollars over budget and still under construction 15 years after its alleged completion date, is the Denver International Airport now the nexus du jour of conspiracy theorists? 

By: Ringo Bones 

It may be just the “doomsday themed artwork” but conspiracy theorists across the political spectrum – i.e. from those with a “liberal streak” to the right-wing conservative white supremacists ones – seem to agree that there more going on under the supposedly idyll corporate veneer of the Denver International Airport. Now at 3.9 billion US dollars over budget – as in 3 times over its original construction budget - and apparently still under construction, especially in the airport’s lower levels, 15 years after its alleged completion date back in 1995, the Denver International Airport had attracted the fascination of both the old and new generation of conspiracy theorists on allegedly how the political and corporate elites will survive the upcoming “apocalypse at the expense of most of us ordinary working class folks. But is this a “conspiracy theory” that manages to hold water or is it just a speculation full of holes? 

The nexus of conspiracy theorists fascination of the new Denver International Airport and the ones that generate the most discussion probably centers on the “doomsday themed” artwork / mural decorating the main lobby of the airport. From my own perspective, the “post apocalyptic dictator” wearing a respirator mural seems to me like a rip-off of General Bison – i.e. the arch-nemesis of Col. Guile in the video game or the movie Street Fighter – i.e. the first one that starred Jean Claude Van Damme and Raul Julia. And given that this was made in 1995, it might actually be inspired – or maybe just a cynical rip-off – of both the movie and the video game Street Fighter.  

Another aspect of the Denver International Airport artwork / mural that drew attention of conspiracy theorists was the “brave new world” themed mural where people of different races are holding hands and standing side by side. Although not so inexplicably, it seems that only conspiracy theorists with a “white supremacist conservative Evangelical Christian streak” are the ones mainly offended by this particular artwork.
Another aspect of the Denver International Airport that draw attention to conspiracy theorist is that the private underwriters footing the “over-budget” part of the airport construction bill – the New World Airport Commission – because of their “alleged” Freemason links. While freemasons had raised the ire of conspiracy theorists due to their “alleged” control of the global economy and the world’s most powerful policymakers, it seems that the proof used by the conspiracy theorists of the New World Airport Commissions’ Freemason links is the Freemason symbol on the stone plaque placed in the airport’s main lobby. 

While the plausibility of a secret “VIP fallout shelter” secretly still under construction under the Denver International Airport is probably the “most plausible” of all the conspiracy theories due to the fact that until this very day, the lower levels of the Denver International Airport is still under construction while very strict security measures are in place to keep out the general public from seeing whatever’s being done under there.  Though allegedly this very spacious VIP fallout shelter is guaranteed to keep the Washington D.C. and Wall Street / Madison Avenue power elite survive the upcoming thermonuclear war in case it happens and keep them there safe from all the radiation for 30 years. On the surface, however, Denver International Airport is just like any other world class international airport equipped with six 10,000-foot runways that can handle the biggest of the modern jumbo jet airliners.

Did Vladimir Putin Have An Ulterior Motive In Shooting Down The Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17?

Even though an international investigation team has yet to prove this, does Russian President Vladimir Putin have an actual ulterior motive in the shootdown incident of the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17? 

By: Ringo Bones

Although the jury is still out on the extent of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s responsibility on the shootdown of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 Boeing 777 back in July 18, 2014 over the pro-Russia separatists controlled part of the Ukraine, many conspiracy theorists with a “liberal streak” around the world are already in a heavy discussion whether or not Putin have an “ulterior motive” in the downing of this particular civilian airliner. And given Putin’s recent rhetoric only sends him down a rabbit hole that could send him to The Hague to face war crimes charges anyone closely following world events could now safely conjecture if the downing of the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 Boeing 777 is serving a means of Putin’s political ends? 

Given Russian President Vladimir Putin’s declaration of war on Russia’s LGBT community and this probably includes anyone not adhering to a “white-Anglo-Saxon-Protestant-work-ethic” lifestyle – i.e. Bohemians / hippies, many now wonder if Putin’s hatred of the LGBT community – Russian and the rest of the world – could have him lead to do the “unthinkable”. As in assassinate a group of leading HIV / AIDS researchers on board the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 using the “Fog of War” of the unrest in Eastern Ukraine as a cover. Given that the death of leading HIV / AIDS researcher Dr. Joep Lange and 100 of the world’s other leading HIV / AIDS researchers could set back a search of a more effective and lower cost cure / drug regimen for HIV / AIDS for decades, would killing this group be a strong political statement of Vladimir Putin being sent tot the Russian and the world’s LGBT community? Given Putin’s “Medieval” view of the LGBT community, there might be some truth to this. 

On the assignment of blame on the shootdown of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 Boeing 777, a recent text message between two pro-Russian separatist militiamen in Eastern Ukraine named “Greek” and “Major” had revealed a plausible “screw-up” on the use of their captured BUK surface-to-air missile. The intercepted and transcribed text message conversation between the two pro-Russia militiamen seem to lead credence on President Putin’s complicity of the shootdown of Flight MH17 that could lead him to be put on trial in The Hague to face war crimes charges.
