“Truth Troubadour” CD Back and Front Cover for a simple sleeve jacket package

“Truth Troubadour” is a poetic acoustic mix of broadside ballads and sweet love songs featuring Vic Sadot on vocals and acoustic guitar, and Eric Golub on viola, violin, and ukulele. Rockin’ Rob Sadot is featured on electric guitar on 3 of the songs. The lead-off song, Left My Mind, is the only rock song. Left My Mind has Dean A Banks on keyboards and Rob “Rbeast” Hunter on drums rocking it out on an old Joe Sadot song. Vic and Rob Sadot are on acoustic and electric guitars respectively.  “Truth Troubadour” is the most acoustic and reflective CD of the four that Vic Sadot has listed at CD Baby (see discography below). Some songs already have videos made for the just released sound track. “Full Spectrum Dominance” is about the rapid trend since the crimes of 9/11 were effectively blamed on Muslims in need of a “war of terror” in their resource rich nations neighboring the Apartheid state of Israel now occupying Palestine. Mass surveillance in violation of the 4th Amendment and the shredding of the Bill of Rights has been enacted with anti-Constitutional legislation like the so-called “Patriot Act” and Presidential NDAA decrees.

BERKELEY CALLING celebrates the living tradition of Free Speech in Berkeley. Kevin Ryan uses his freedom of speech to tell the truth about 9/11 and other political  betrayals of the American people and their Constitution. Kevin Ryan’s blog “Dig Within” and his new book, “Another Nineteen: Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects” are highly recommended! The links to his works are posted at this BERKELEY CALLING Blog post. Be sure to read the comments section too! We have chosen a Vic Sadot music video to embed below titled “BLOWBACK OR BLOODY TREASON” at Truth Troubadour YouTube Channel. The song was released on 9/11/11, the same day that this vicsadot.com website was launched. The song was on a 16 song CD titled “9/11 Truth & Justice Songs”, which is available at CD Baby as one of three Vic Sadot CD releases there.

Noam Chomsky has been a long-time darling of the pseudo-intellectual left in that he has dismissed discussion of the murder of President John F. Kennedy and the attacks designed to terrorize the American people on 9/11 as "conspiracy theories" without really engaging the points made by critics of official stories. It is an odd appeal to authority rather than to verifiable facts with a mix of simplistic arrogance that can Kevin Ryan calls "willful ignorance".

Noam Chomsky has been a long-time darling of much of the “left”. Yet he dismisses  discussion of the murder of President John F. Kennedy and the attacks designed to terrorize the American people on 9/11 as “conspiracy theories” without really engaging the points made by critics of those official stories. It is an odd appeal to authority rather than a call to get to the root of all verifiable facts as any normal detective would do for any major crime.  Kevin Ryan calls it “willful ignorance”.

Basically Chomsky rejects the conclusions of many investigative journalists on the politics of JFK as well as the factual accounting of his assassination. In the Chomsky view JFK was just a cold warrior puppet of the establishement. In the view of James Douglass in "JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters" the case is made that JFK was at odds with the great "military-industrial complex" that his predecessor President Eisenhower warned the American people about it his Farewell Address. Chomsky sees this version as a romanticized version of a Camelot myth while Douglass documents a more deeply disturbing story.

Basically, Chomsky rejects the conclusions of many investigative journalists on the direction of the politics of JFK, as well as the factual accounting of his assassination. In the Chomsky view, JFK was just a cold warrior puppet of the establishment. In the view of James Douglass in “JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters”, the case is made that JFK was at odds with the great factions of the “Military-Industrial Complex” that his predecessor, President Dwight David Eisenhower, warned the American people about in his Farewell Address. Chomsky sees this version as a romanticized Camelot myth about Kennedy’s integrity.  Douglass documents a more deeply disturbing story.

Chomsky jumped on the "liberal" bandwagon without much research into the facts of 9/11. He  endorsed the "blowback" theory that our policies caused Muslims to attack us and to defeat the US military and intelligence and cause it to virtually stand down while 110 story  steel frame building disintegrated to dust and rubble in 10 seconds time. Just like with JFK, there is no conspiracy here and to talk about it is to be distracted from stopping the wars and occupations that result. However, truth should be the real antidote to toxic lies in support of war and the pursuit of truth should never be dismissed with the wave of a hand in "willful ignorance".

Chomsky jumped on the “liberal” bandwagon without much research into the facts of 9/11 exposed by David Ray Griffin and Michael Ruppert and others early after that immensely important event. He endorsed the “Blowback Theory” that our policies caused Muslims to attack us, to defeat the entire US Military-Industrial-Intelligence Complex, and cause it to virtually stand down while two 110 story steel frame buildings disintegrated to dust and rubble in 10 seconds time. Just like with JFK, there is “no conspiracy” here. Chomsky says that to talk about 9/11 is to be distracted from stopping the wars and occupations that result. However, truth should be sought as the real antidote to toxic lies in support of wars, fear-mongering, and repression. The pursuit of truth should never be dismissed with the wave of the hand in “willful ignorance”.

BLOWBACK OR BLOODY TREASON by Vic Sadot at Truth Troubadour Channel. This song was released on 9/11/11 on the 10th anniversary of the treasonous 9/11 false flag operation on a 16 song CD titled “9/11 Truth & Justice Songs”, which remains available in Vic Sadot’s CD Baby pages. It is Vic’s third release made by Discmakers and posted at CD Baby. 

Blowback or Bloody Treason was created after reading Crossing the Rubicon by Michael Ruppert, the former LA narcotics detective who blew the whistle on CIA drug running and later became a 9/11 whistle-blower. “We need a great detective’s logic! Forensic facts & laws of physics! Not leaps of faith! Just steps to reason! Was it blowback or bloody treason?”
