Not long ago I wrote that every American institution, public and private, is corrupt. And every week Robert Parry’s reports prove the truth of my statement.
In his latest, http://www.globalresearch.ca/from-brady-to-mh-17-power-defines-reality/5522142 , Parry says that “Power – far more than fact – determines what is defined as true in America, a nation that has become dangerously disconnected from reality in matters both trivial and important.” To illustrate he uses the orchestrated “Deflategate” scandal and the orchestrated MH-17 storyline.
Parry reports how NFL team owners used NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to frame the New England Pariots and the team’s quarterback, Tom Brady. It is a scientific fact that cold air and moisture reduce a football’s internal air pressure. This scientific fact was ignored, and Brady was successfully smeared for running a scheme to slightly deflate footballs. He and the Patriots were sanctioned.
