“THE SECRET OF NIKOLA TESLA” – The rare 1980 Movie

DISCLAIMER included with video:

***TOO ALL WHO READ THIS…PLEASE READ MY PUBLIC DISCLAIMER/APOLOGY ON MY YOUTUBE PROFILE (“About Ronbeadle’s Channel”).***

PLEASE NOTE: This rare B movie only portrays characters and events in the most limited, basic and general way. It in no way should act like an full authority on Tesla and the personal events of his time. So much is missing from the man and his story in this film. There are a number of documentaries on Tesla, and many books and websites the seeker should seek out. That being said…this is however a new remaster of the film, with the color contrast saturation corrected and with added subtitles included.

Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) was hailed as a scientific superman, and was perhaps the greatest inventor genius of science and technology the world has ever known. He invented and discovered many things which are now commonplace and concurrent in our modern day and age such as AC (alternating current), radio, television, radar, x-rays, laser technology, solar energy, and wireless communication among many others.

He suffered a similar fate as Mozart’s….raised up and praised by the world for his genius only to find himself abandoned with nothing and no one to care for him at the end of his life.

A tragedy for this planet, since many people think that his contributions and innovations to the world have had a greater impact than any other inventor before him, and since.

CAST:

Orson Wells as J.P. Morgan
Petar Bozovic as Tesla
Dennis Patrick as Thomas Edison
Strother Martin as George Westinghouse
– Directed by Kristo Papic

Let’s hope a proper film on the life of Nikola Tesla can finally be made to replace this 1980’s one…for future generations to be inspired by.

Please plea to popular media, film directors and producers to make this happen!

Dr.Brian O’Leary speaks in front of the White House – 09/11/06

On the 5th anniversary of 9.11.2001 in Washington DC
the 911 Eyewitness team held a 911 Citizen’s Court
featuring expert witnesses who provided reliable testimony
and concrete evidence that 9.11 was an inside job.

One of those who spoke was Professor Brian O’Leary, former Astronaut with the Apollo program.

OBEY (2013 documentary)

This is a film based on the book “Death of the Liberal Class” by journalist and Pulitzer prize winner, Chris Hedges.

It charts the rise of the Corporate State, and examines the future of obedience in a world of unfettered capitalism, globalization, staggering inequality and environmental change.

The film predominantly focuses on US corporate capitalism, but it is my hope that the viewer can recognise the relevance of what is being expressed with regards to domestic political and corporate activity.

Ideas at the House: Panel – The War on Whistleblowers and Their Publishers

US Journalist and activist Alexa O’Brien and Australian commentator Robert Manne are joined by video conference with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, Guardian Journalist Glenn Greenwald and Chelsea Manning’s Lawyer David Coombs on stage at the Sydney Opera House (moderated by Bernard Keane of Crikey).

Powerful governments are waging a war on whistleblowers and those involved in publishing their material. Edward Snowden has been granted temporary asylum in Russia, Manning has been convicted of espionage and is awaiting sentencing, and Julian Assange has been granted asylum by Ecuador but cannot step outside its London Embassy. It’s clear that the actions of whistleblowers and their publishers – ‘traitors’ as they are known to some – have come at a significant personal cost, and while the human drama of these stories is engrossing, the focus should be on the very real issues they’ve raised: surveillance, press freedom, privacy, secrecy, and accountability.

The roles of governments and corporations in the future of the internet, and their use and abuse of data, have been put under the global spotlight. In the wake of Manning, Snowden and Wikileaks, we finally have the scope to properly debate the need for government transparency and the trade-off between privacy and security.

Watch our expert panel discuss the implications of the war on whistleblowers for the main actors, and the consequences if that war is lost for the rest of us.
