The Beatles “Get Back”


January 1969.  The Let It Be album/documentary/album began as a film/TV special for the Beatles.  Subsequently, the project ended the most popular rock group of its time.

Record producer Phil Spector would piece together miles of recording tape into their final album.  All the released singles were Paul McCartney’s including “The Long and Winding Road”, “Let It Be” and “Get Back”.  The movie won an Oscar for Best Original Score.

One of the film’s highlights is when George Harrison quits the band after Paul McCartney suggests replacing him with Eric Clapton.  After George walks out, Yoko Ono sits up on an amp and shrieks out her idea of “singing”, accompanied by the Beatles.

The Beatles: Get Back Debunks The Oldest Yoko Ono Myth

While the Beatles were able to patch up their differences for Abbey Road (Summer ’69), it was the end.  John Lennon would unofficially quit the group (most believe at the behest of Yoko Ono.)  The other three bandmates convince him to remain quiet about it.

April 1970.  Upon the release of “Let It Be”, (the title song John called “a bore”), Paul McCartney officially quits.

Talk of rejoining the famous band ends when John Lennon is gunned down by a madman named Mark David Chapman on December 8, 1980.

Vanilla Sky’s 9/11 Predictive Programming

Vanilla sky post.jpg

What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul?  Mark 8:36

“Vanilla Sky” (2001) opens with aerial shots of Manhattan, or what it looks like if you’re flying in too low, ready to crash into a building.  Thus, begins the dream… and what is a movie if not a dream?  Sometimes, dreams predict things.  The camera zooms down toward “The Dakota” – that notorious apartment building we all know from “Rosemary’s Baby” and from where John Lennon was murdered.

The Beatles – Illuminati hand signals by Paul McCartney and John Lennon.

“Vanilla Sky” was filmed in 2000 and then released on Dec. 14th, 2001.  I’m surprised it wasn’t cut – reedited – as some other pre-9/11 films were.  (e.g. “Men in Black 2”, “Spiderman”, and “Collateral Damage”.)  There are more 9/11 references , which I’ll get to later.

PLOT.  David Aames (Tom Cruise) is a rich playboy who has everything.  David and his best friend/employee Brian (Jason Lee) are nearly killed in a car accident toward the beginning.  Brian remarks, “You know what?  Your life flashed before my eyes.”  This warning is laughed off.

David’s quandary:  He controls a media conglomerate (left to him by his father), but he’s not taken seriously by “the board”, who want to take it away from him.

More seriously:  He is involved with Julie Gianni (Cameron Diaz) whom Brian refers to as his “fuck buddy”.  When Sophia (Penelope Cruz) enters the picture, Julie knows she’s about to lose him.

When David meets Sophia (originally Brian’s girl), they become soulmates in one evening.  Just when our hero thinks he’s found his dream girl, Julie returns, luring him into her car, possibly for a sexual rendezvous.  While driving, she begins to unravel, revealing that she knows she’s his “fuck buddy” and asks “When did you stop caring?”  Ms. Psycho Girlfriend asks “Do you believe in God?”, then rams her car through a railing, crashing into a concrete wall.


David survives, but is left disfigured, his side partially paralyzed with excruciating headaches.  After some time of being alone and depressed, he attempts to resume his relationship with Sophia.  On their reunion date, she brings along Brian.  Things do not go well from there.  Drinking tequila shots, David sees Sophia dancing and also sees that she has moved on.

In a short, but very funny scene, David stares at his face in the men’s room mirror.  Three guys pass by and one tells him, “Dude, fix your fucking face!”  (Even Tom Cruise laughs.)

David finds Sophia (speaking with another man) and basically wants her to tell him where they stand.  She doesn’t want to say, then finally she blurts out:  “I’ll tell you in another life, when we’re cats.”

Going home, she ditches him for Brian and our former hero is left passed out drunk on the sidewalk.

“Vanilla Sky” shifts into many gears after this, but like I promised , I’ll get to the other 9/11 references.


At the conclusion, David (whom we do not know if he’s dead, alive or dreaming), is forced to confront his greatest fear:  heights.  His dream guide takes him up an elevator into one of the tallest skyscrapers in New York City.  His guide explains that he’s in the future now, “much has changed and your money will not last long.”  On top of the building, he meets with his psychiatrist, Brian and Sophia.  He is faced with a decision:  stay in his “Lucid Dream” or wake up by jumping off the building.  Speaking with the only woman he ever loved, he asks Sophia if she remembers telling him – “Every passing minute is a chance to turn it all around.”


David makes the decision to jump.  End the dream.

9/11 – The Falling Man

As he is falling, one cannot help but be reminded of the 9/11 jumpers.  This is the subliminal message.  America was woken out of its dream – its vision of invulnerability.  So how did the filmmakers know this beforehand?


In the last shot, we see one eye opening.

Conspiracy Theory Analysis: Was John Lennon Killed by the CIA?

John Lennon signs his autograph for his murderer Mark David Chapman

On Dec. 8, 1980, singer/songwriter/ex-Beatle John Lennon was gunned down by a former fan named Mark David Chapman.  Since then, conspiracy theorists have speculated that Lennon was murdered by the CIA because he would have made trouble for the new Reagan Administration.  Is there any truth to this hypothesis?

For those who believe in this theory, Mark David Chapman was trained by the CIA in special camps in South America, under the guise of a Peace Corps-type outfit.  Hopelessly brainwashed, he was triggered by the novel “Catcher in the Rye” and the movie “The Wizard of Oz”.  After the killing, Chapman barely knew what he was doing, nor remembered killing Lennon.  Further proof is that the guard at the Dakota did not try to apprehend Chapman, because he too worked for the CIA.

While all this may seem to make sense, the theory has several fatal flaws.  The biggest is that Jimmy Carter was still president in 1980.  Reagan was president-elect.

In 1980, Lennon was busy recording and was doing nothing remotely political.  (In the early 1970’s, he was on Pres. Nixon’s enemy list and protested the Vietnam War.)  In his last interview, Lennon was philosophical about Reagan, said he “never voted” and that “we should try to make the 1980’s better.”  There was no ill will.

As a child, Mark Chapman believed that little people lived in his walls and that he was the their ruler.  In 1977, he had nearly committed suicide.  Losing his identity, he signed his name as “John Lennon” or as “Holden Caulfield” (the main character in “Catcher in the Rye”.)

There’s no doubt the CIA has been up to some shady operations, but there’s no real motive for them to go so far out of their way to kill a pop star minding his own business.  Mark David Chapman was truly insane.  It behooves the far-left that a sick nobody brought down a famed celebrity activist…except that’s exactly what happened.  Lennon himself once joked that he probably would be killed by a “nutter”.

Is Avril Lavigne Dead?

In 2002, singer Avril Lavigne hired lookalike Melissa Vandella as a “lure”, i.e., someone to deal with the annoying paparazzi.  But, in 2003, did Ms. Lavigne unexpectedly die?  Was she replaced by Vandella to keep $ rolling into the record companies?  There are pros and cons to this news story.


There’s no doubt Ms. Lavigne’s appearance has changed.

Conspiracy theorists allege a height difference for the new Lavigne.

Handwriting also differs.

After Avril’s second (real) c.d., her image changed to more “poppy” songs, e.g., “Girlfriend” Image result for avril lavigne and melissa vandella togetherand

“Hello Kitty”.

There are supposed hints in the new songs that the old Avril is dead.


Appearance change could be due to plastic surgery or simply aging.

As for her handwriting, it’s not uncommon for people to have two different styles of handwriting.

Avril’s second c.d. didn’t sell as well as her first.  Her record company may have forced her to shift to more saleable music.  Pop always sells.

Hints at her death are open to interpretation.

A similar conspiracy theory erupted over singer Paul McCartney in 1966, who supposedly was killed in a car crash.

Bogus Conspiracy Theory

The Beatles used this rumor as a publicity stunt and nothing more.  It has been officially debunked.
