The Impeded Pace of 9/11 Truth

The Impeded Pace of 9/11 Truth

By James Hufferd, Ph.D.,
Coordinator, 911 Truth Grassroots Organization

*

It’s starting all over again with the plane shoot-down in Ukraine! Once again, the alarms are blaring loud and crazy! The much complained-of slow pace of 9/11 Truth, to begin with as slow as the progress of most any other variety of truth (that is, slow indeed) is slowed even further by the whole explosion of the establishment, government, and information industry proclaiming in concert, over and over and over from the start a message contrived to convince everyone of a parallel unsubstantiated message suiting their precise purposes. Don’t wait for the evidence. If it indicates otherwise (as it usually does), ignore it. Talk over it. In the case of the Malaysian plane in the Ukraine, we know who did it – Putin! An investigation on the ground is hardly necessary! And in general in these cases, if you, John Q., don’t want family trouble, marriage trouble, employment trouble, friend trouble – stay far away from any “outrageous conspiracy theories”! We’ll tell you what happened, who did it! You saw it on TV for yourself, in most cases (though not necessarily in this one). What could be simpler? The case of the mis-identified toxic gas deployers in Syria comes to mind, as well as 9/11 itself. But, in this case, it’s Putin! Putin! Putin! That sort of thing has started up again now, the alarms are clanging, the hounds are out – and I find myself overcome by a raging fever of searing, severe doubt.

What anyone who has paid attention to the bad nightly (not to be confused with the Daly) theatre masquerading as our national/international news these past dozen and more years with no more than normal human skepticism has eventually come to realize is that the government/corporate establishment’s chief behind-the-scenes spinners of its nightly stories, typically purvey identical tales on every highly-financed TV network and outlet, and must really not be all that imaginative. In most instances of mega-events and mass-scale tragedies of whatever sort, the major outlines of the story seem to be virtually unchanged from one to the next, most following the same scenario. And, whenever possible, the story as told over and over and over and over, a hundred or a thousand or a million times a day to the exclusion of practically all else, will have a designated villain who caused whatever it is, who is positively or at least emphatically identified in practically the first five minutes, and whose name is spat out from then on, over and over and over – Putin! Putin! And the pudding’s proof is never produced.

And now, they’re saying already that the evidence in the field has been “tampered with”! Hedging! Their message? Don’t trust the evidence! Right from the beginning, we are told that the Malaysian plane that went down in that contested eastern part of the Ukraine – still in the absence of physical evidence – was shot down either by actual Russian Federation troops in the area or by pro-Russian rebels using a Putin-provided Russian missile and Russian equipment, and possibly on Putin’s orders. (When I hear – as I have – an “unconfirmed report” of pro-Russian rebels hightailing it out of the area early yesterday towing a missile launcher, it reminds me of the “unconfirmed sighting” of Santa Claus and reindeer I saw announced, with imagery, on the news last December!)

But no, it couldn’t have been Ukrainian militants who downed the commercial jet, we’re told, because after all, why would they shoot down a foreign airliner over their own country? Duh! Well, why would the pro-Russian forces shoot down a foreign airliner? (And what was a Malaysian Airlines flight doing in a completely verboten piece of war zone sky over there anyway?) There’s really no need for a ground investigation, we’re told. Blame the Russians and their surrogates on the ground! It’s a slam-dunk that they either did it or caused it!

And how convenient of them to do so, just on the very day the U.S. administration trots out, to a universal chorus of disgusted jeers, new, harsher sanctions against the Russian Putintate after being unable to get them (or him) to rush in and try to annex a large new chunk of Ukrainian territory, which presumably would have been enough to provoke unified NATO action to oust this monster (who, by the way, doesn’t exactly play ball with the international central banking regimes and has threatened to replace the dollar as the acceptable medium of payment for his enormous reserves of natural gas going to the west).

So, how on earth might one possibly read the situation if not just as the government and its news lackeys have been spending every minute of every hour since the crash contending? Well, try this – I go back to the fate of this Malaysian Airlines jet’s unfortunate likewise U.S.-made sister craft that vanished from the skies back in March, and now seems more likely than not never to be located. In that case, there was rather firm (though, of course, not confirmed) evidence of a mysterious nonverbal signal transmitted from the grid coordinate position of the U.S. base on Diego Garcia in the midst of the Indian Ocean and claiming to come from the lost plane. Suggesting the likelihood that the flight had been diverted there by Global Hawk remote control, presumably to prevent a certain passenger from transferring a critical technological prototype he had with him in his possession. The sophisticated piece of hardware had been developed in China, the subsequent account went, and the authorities wanted it. Certainly, whatever the case, the grand coincidence of a second plane from that same miniscule fleet of U.S.-made commercial jets cannot be overlooked.

And who’s to say that this plane, likewise manufactured to conform to the plausibility of Global Hawk diversion, was not likewise diverted, this time to a position 33,000 feet over eastern Ukraine, where it became the target of a clandestine NATO ground unit? Such a unit, if it existed (and such seem to be secreted everywhere) could even have been equipped with the identifying Russian BUK missiles, positive identification of which will presumably be regarded as the “smoking gun” tying the notorious shoot-down to the Russians and Putin – who thereby could be transformed fully into a pariah ripe for the usual drill – removal.

So, is that what really happened? Sitting here in the very midst of the Fruited Plain, with no evidence as yet analyzed in any case, how on earth would I know? But, such would fit the known M.O. of the NWO – and, of course, to hell once again with all those who died. False Flag? It would fit, and so very conveniently just now! Only one thing seems fairly certain – we’ll probably never know.

My question? Who calls the shots in such cases? Answer: Somebody, for sure, who has full-time to devote to weaving and choreographing harebrained deceitful plots (that at least seem to work), and whose day job must be to do so.

UPDATE: late tonight, it’s reported that a transmission was intercepted from rebels in Ukraine informing President Putin they had just shot down a plane. By cell phone, I wonder?

Chossudovsky -- THE ISLAMIC STATE CALIPHATE PROJECT

The Islamic State Caliphate Project and the “Global War on Terrorism” By Prof Michel Chossudovsky Global Research, July 02, 2014 Url of this article: http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-islamic-state-caliphate-project-and-the-global-war-on-terrorism/5389530 The Al Qaeda legend and the threat of the “Outside Enemy” is sustained through extensive media and government propaganda. In the post 9/11 era, the terrorist threat from Al Qaeda constitutes the building block of US-NATO military doctrine. It justifies under a humanitarian mandate the conduct of “counter-terrorism operations” Worldwide. Known and documented, Al Qaeda affiliated entities have been used by US-NATO in numerous conflicts as “intelligence assets” since the heyday of the Soviet-Afghan war. In Syria, the Al Nusrah and ISIS rebels are the foot-soldiers of the Western military alliance, which in turn oversees and controls the recruitment and training of paramilitary forces. While accusing several countries of harboring terrorists, America is a bona fide “State Sponsor of Terrorism”: The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) –which operates in both Syria and Iraq– is covertly supported and financed by America and its allies including Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Moreover, the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham’s Sunni caliphate project coincides with a longstanding US agenda to carve up both Iraq and Syria into three separate territories: A Sunni Islamist Caliphate, an Arab Shia Republic, and a Republic of Kurdistan. The US-led Global War on Terrorism (GWOT) constitutes the cornerstone of US military doctrine. “Going after Islamic terrorists” is part and parcel of non-conventional warfare. The underlying objective is to justify the conduct of counter terrorism operations Worldwide, which enables the US and its allies to intervene in the affairs of sovereign countries. Many progressive writers, including alternative media, while focusing on recent developments in Iraq, fail to understand the logic behind the “Global War on Terrorism.” The Islamic State of Iraq and Al Cham (ISIS) is often considered as an “independent entity” rather than an instrument of the Western military alliance. Moreover, many committed anti-war activists –who oppose the tenets of the US-NATO military agenda– will nonetheless endorse Washington’s counter-terrorism agenda directed against Al Qaeda: The Worldwide terrorist threat is “real”: “We are against the war, but we support the Global War on Terrorism”. The Caliphate Project and The US National Intelligence Council Report A new gush of propaganda has been set in motion. The leader of the now defunct Islamic State of Iraq and Al Cham (ISIS) Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has announced the creation of an Islamic State: Fighters loyal to the group’s proclaimed “Caliph Ibrahim ibn Awwad”, or Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as he was known until Sunday’s July 1st announcement, are inspired by the Rashidun caliphate, which succeeded the Prophet Muhammad in the seventh century, and is revered by most Muslims.” (Daily Telegraph, June 30, 2014) In a bitter irony, the caliphate project as an instrument of propaganda has been on the drawing board of US intelligence for more than ten years. In December 2004, under the Bush Administration, The National Intelligence Council (NIC) predicted that in the year 2020 a New Caliphate extending from the Western Mediterranean to Central Asia and South East Asia would emerge, threatening Western democracy and Western values. The “findings” of the National Intelligence Council were published in a 123 declassified page report entitled “Mapping the Global Future”. “A New Caliphate provides an example of how a global movement fueled by radical religious identity politics could constitute a challenge to Western norms and values as the foundation of the global system” (emphasis added) The unclassified NIC 2004 report borders on ridicule, it is devoid of intelligence, let alone historical and geopolitical analysis. Its fake narrative nonetheless bears a canny resemblance to the June 29, 2014 announcement of the creation of the Islamic State Caliphate by ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The NIC report presents a so-called fictional scenario of a letter from a fictional grandson of Bin Ladin to a family relative in 2020″ It nonetheless intimates that the Caliphate constitutes a real danger for the Western World and Western civilization. Its ultimate objective is to demonize Muslims with a view to pursuing a military agenda: The fictional scenario portrayed below provides an example of how a global movement fueled by radical religious identity could emerge. Under this scenario, a new Caliphate is proclaimed and manages to advance a powerful counter ideology that has widespread appeal. It is depicted in the form of a hypothetical letter from a fictional grandson of Bin Ladin to a family relative in 2020. He recounts the struggles of the Caliph in trying to wrest control from traditional regimes and the conflict and confusion which ensue both within the Muslim world and outside between Muslims and the United States, Europe, Russia and China. While the Caliph’s success in mobilizing support varies, places far outside the Muslim core in the Middle East—in Africa and Asia—are convulsed as a result of his appeals. The scenario ends before the Caliph is able to establish both spiritual and temporal authority over a territory— which historically has been the case for previous Caliphates. At the end of the scenario, we identify lessons to be drawn.“Mapping the Global Future”. p. 83 http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001rfp3YdlcxUDDzzEb2phvncgPLSv_p8D0I6mNJS01bGgGkFeYaGjjvi1XeZGx_n8JGmZwZrkSo_BQRAr6Iq3gLXsFcPDOj2DF9JoJc0psy5hvlaO4_YaMko94XFAik3fu89QoIRk-kj4q5Hnz2wK_p_5ENOAO8bgLYLXdY-JTsW-GifuYFZHUD1e87ZKUlA0haP6b1x_UQeA5SXfR6XA29LemRXWWO-_3LH_WZr5cJFcYm9cEn_kiepYc0Xsm1OUe&c=wh42JVXFHGgO59V9Rkq3ZwMl7U-mWh6PRnKppgA9V1ikIEEfY8bY6w==&ch=bg-1IQYUDFh3hC3OeEFSdzv1Syo-B5gbITOhQWfcPG_LQ7Ov-b1vQw== page 90 of the report This “authoritative” NIC report was not only presented to the White House, the Congress and the Pentagon, it was also dispatched to America’s allies. The threat emanating from the Muslim World (including the caliphate project) is firmly entrenched in US-NATO military doctrine. The NIC document was intended to be read by top officials. Braodly speaking it is part of the “Top official”(TOPOFF) propaganda campaign which targets senior foreign policy and military decision-makers, not to mention those scholars and researchers who continue to believe that Al Qaeda “Made in America” is a threat to the security of the Western World. The underpinnings of the caliphate scenario is the “Clash of Civilizations”, which provides a justification in the eyes of public opinion for America to intervene Worldwide as part of a global counter terrorism agenda. In the words of Dick Cheney’s 2004 remarks pertaining to the NIC’s report: “They talk about wanting to re-establish what you could refer to as the Seventh Century Caliphate. This was the world as it was organized 1,200, 1,300 years, in effect, when Islam or Islamic people controlled everything from Portugal and Spain in the West; all through the Mediterranean to North Africa; all of North Africa; the Middle East; up into the Balkans; the Central Asian republics; the southern tip of Russia; a good swath of India; and on around to modern day Indonesia. In one sense from Bali and Jakarta on one end, to Madrid on the other.” Dick Cheney From a geopolitical standpoint, the caliphate constitutes an area in which the US is seeking to extend its economic and strategic influence. What Cheney is describing in today’s context is a broad region extending from the Mediterranean to Central Asia in which the US and its allies are directly involved in military and intelligence operations. The stated aim of the NIC report was “to prepare the next Bush administration for challenges that lie ahead by projecting current trends that may pose a threat to US interests”. “The Lessons Learnt” as outlined in this authoritative NIC document are as follows: the caliphate project “constitutes a serious challenge to the international order”. “The IT revolution is likely to amplify the clash between Western and Muslim worlds…” The document refers to the appeal of the caliphate to Muslims and concludes that: “the proclamation of the Caliphate would not lessen the likelihood of terrorism and in fomenting more conflict”. [sic] the caliphate “could fuel a new generation of terrorists intent on attacking those opposed to the caliphate, whether inside or outside the Muslim World.” http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001rfp3YdlcxUDDzzEb2phvncgPLSv_p8D0I6mNJS01bGgGkFeYaGjjvi1XeZGx_n8JV-C5FuoF9iWB8vlOsl7MdwJC6XkY6K3AX2BUU-GwBwWEDmQnn5ypkTUdKNMbJRBn9eG7jSS9bDGueJCk0EZ-H44eVy56aAsqqvJP1pDiWgt6vZzNSyIANUbm9m4Ub8jwWdpQYWKNb65gl8_CMa7inMhVOopGndMfkKI2GkrQL1YJbmy0bfYfVKsfyXEDFk-4&c=wh42JVXFHGgO59V9Rkq3ZwMl7U-mWh6PRnKppgA9V1ikIEEfY8bY6w==&ch=bg-1IQYUDFh3hC3OeEFSdzv1Syo-B5gbITOhQWfcPG_LQ7Ov-b1vQw== The NIC’s analysis suggests that the proclamation of a caliphate will generate a new wave of terrorism emanating from Muslim countries thereby justifying an escalation in America’s Global War on Terrorism (GWOT). What it does not mention is that US intelligence in liaison with Britain’s MI6 and Israel’s Mossad are covertly involved in supporting the caliphate project. In turn, the media has embarked on a new wave of lies and fabrications, focusing on “a new terrorist threat” emanating from the Muslim World. Needless to say the links of the jihadist terror network to Western intelligence are never mentioned. Copyright © 2014 Global Research

NAGGING QUESTIONS

Nagging Questions

by James Hufferd, Ph.D.
Coordinator, 911 Truth Grassroots Organization

_____

Live questions swirl and fly around like sparks these days filling the air in the matter of 9/11 and its slowly-focusing proper New World Order context, which many of us are concluding the former was used to launch virtually fully-formed out of the nest in initially wobbly but precociously brave functioning Orwellian mode.

Question 1 - “New World Order” is generally taken now to mean global government by its handful of mostly-silent sociopathic fomenters. So, the question arises naturally: “What’s wrong per se with global government?” Wouldn’t it be better to have the world all consistently run on some positive practicable principle, like sheer efficiency, instead of having it chopped up into hundreds or thousands of quarreling, half-educated (if we’re that lucky) polliwog sovereignties with varying hodgepodges of notions of everything? I.e., a sleek, handsome and healthy beast in place of a pail full of sqirmy sand-crabs and worms and a couple of flopping fish?

The antidote to such dangerously seductive thinking, as highlighted most famously by now almost-centenarian David Rockefeller in his Memoirs, as well as others, is that humankind doesn’t function well in bondage. So, the same telling critique the plutocrats apply to explain the impracticality of communism works even better as a damning critique of their own NWO utopia.

In fact, I see the NWO, with its inescapable unnamed (as far as we know) board of trustees firmly and immovably ensconced at the very top as definitely a throwback to centuries earlier, and not in any way an advancement. It’s a systemic throwback to the closed society of the crowned heads of Europe, who at the end, extended their coordinated domination imperialistically to span virtually the entire globe.

And their downfall as a ruling handful was finally concluded by a collection of victories at arms, but even more by reason and science (collectively called “The Enlightenment”) that recognized all of Man as naturally sovereign, free and equal, irrespective of bloodline, and finally of property and wealth. With inalienable rights, the enjoyment of which can be guaranteed only by self-government, casting the crowned gods of the ancient firmament aside – something the family-girt godlike class very much active today with the advanced wealth to buy and manage the world themselves manipulating the shells of nations couldn’t abide. And so, through scheming and buying their way, they retook control, and here we are.

And, big surprise! Governments at the national level today are acting troupes, the plots they portray narrated and written on consignment by ad men backed by psychologists and purveyed by criers, with cheer squads and choruses cajoling between them and a vast audience still half-deluded into thinking the show is interactive.

So, what is wrong with world government as already practiced now? It makes mere devalued and expendable props and water-carriers of the human race and, increasingly as proof, when we fail to make way for them and theirs, we’re unceremoniously squashed. We can scarce control our own affairs at a global level.

Nagging Question 2 – “Was it nukes?” People like Donald Fox of Veterans Today say unequivocally that it was. Only nuclear bombs planted in the WTC would have had the power to pulverize masses of concrete and hurl massive steel beams massive distances, they say. And, though without naming sources that should know one way or the other, claim a pandemic of cancers in New York since on causes “consistent with” 9/11 nuclear exposure.

So, what do such nuke theorists say about nanothermite being found in abundance in the Ground Zero dust? Interestingly, Don Fox says, verbatim, “Nanothermite doesn’t exist” and, in effect, no form or amount of thermite of any kind packs the explosive power to collapse a doghouse. Don Fox admits to being no scientist; he mentions the work of an alleged physicist in Russia. Meanwhile, when questioned, he has the spleen to contend, as it were, Neils Harrit, Steve Jones, and the other respected and seasoned scientists who researched and authored the now well-known peer-reviewed paper that described and positively identified nanothermite in the dust and, accordingly, positively implicated it in the crimes (begging the question, what else could it have been there for?) were, plain and simple, all wet.

It’s as if police weapons experts find a gun and matching bullet-holes in the victim at a crime scene and conclude that the victim was shot, and Mr. Fox comes along and says a machete was used and there was no gun, and the gun found and pictured couldn’t have killed anybody and didn’t exist. Implying that the weapons experts are daft.

Fox is quick to add that he “strongly suspects” the Israelis did the crime because they were on the scene. And his surmise may well turn out right at least to one extent or another. But, if it’s a game of numbers, what about there being incomparably more Americans on the scene? Wouldn’t that make it just as likely that a lot of Americans must have been causally involved?

But assuming for a moment that he is right and it was an Israeli operation committed on American soil via nukes planted in the basements of the buildings, would the American administration knowingly allow the Israelis to plant and detonate nuclear bombs in Manhattan? (Turning it around, would an Israeli government knowingly allow American special forces to plant live nukes in Jerusalem or Tel Aviv?) What if it had turned, either immediately or eventually, into another Hiroshima? I believe there’s something wrong with this picture, especially as urged by a non-scientist completely rejecting the professionally- undisputed definitive findings of a team of highly-reputable scientists. Though reserving final judgment, I think I’ll keep my money on Harrit, Jones, and company.

And finally (for now), Question 3 – I’m nagged by the mystery of how the consistent, seldom deviating tactics of deception employed by the NWO operatives (CIA and NATO in particular, with a nod to the FBI, which now operate worldwide as well) seem to more-or-less work over and over again with the public, and especially with other parts of the establishment. As with al-Qaeda, a reputedly rogue demonic gang of infinite proportions and capacities, to say nothing of budget, long-employed in fact as patsies, clandestinely clothed and fed and deployed variously from Washington and maybe London, now there’s ISIS (or is it ISIL?) same idea, fresh persona, now with a-Q turning up as a quiet ally in some places, a foe in others, the I group’s m.o., now given away to alternative news readers as well by confirmable eye-witness reports of their U.S. special ops training in Jordan in 2013. Nothing new, folks! When will they ever learn, indeed? And now they’re being employed in Iraq apparently to fulfill Israel’s long-held dream of permanently dividing that poor, misbegotten realm into quarreling segments, and in Syria possibly to give the U.S. a pretext to intervene or invade after all.

Not so very far away, meanwhile, the CIA has quietly gone into Ukraine and fairly transparently bankrolled and engineered the overthrow of its way-too-friendly-to-cousin-Russia government on Russia’s doorstep, and well within its centuries-long recognized sphere of influence, to proceed with a western central bank cooperating encirclement of the eastern nuclear giant. The CIA op in Ukraine looked just like the other so-called “color revolutions” engineered in neighboring ex-member countries of the old Soviet Union in recent years. No differences in formula. And all with the same sleight of hand that continues to work with and even beyond the ra-ra! crowd.

As I’ve suggested before, there’s a 9/11-size hole in recent U.S. history (maybe a pre-planned “memory hole”?) into which 9/11 per se and serious attempts to narrate and explain it in any detail rationally have fallen beyond sight in the works of standard U.S. historians “covering” the era of which it remains the defining event. There’s the before and the after, but generally no serious accounting in any comparable depth of what took place on 9/11/01 or its context.

And why not? Because most Americans – and apparently most historians – prefer to leave that interval in our national life murky, to sustain the myth of the U.S. as the always-good GI with the heart of gold (or, alternatively, to spare another favored NWO primary puppet, Israel, from the feared existential wrath of the world). And because there’s simply no rational way to detail the myth we are told about 9/11. And most who doubt it are still too heartbreakingly shy to say so.

Just remember: Only the worthy can receive the truth.

AUTHENTICITY

Authenticity~

by James Hufferd, Ph.D.
Coordinator, 911 Truth Grassroots Organization

/^\

On June 4, 1989 – a quarter of a century ago today – a Chinese military unit pushed into Tiananmen Square in Beijing, filled with untold numbers of dissidents rallying against an oppressive regime long in power, after some days of hand-wringing by the authorities, and summarily gunned down untold hundreds of the protesters, typically students, to restore the peace and order of the gun.

And, as chillingly told and documented in a new book, The People’s Republic of Amnesia, by western journalist Louisa Lim, even among the young intellectuals in today’s China she interviewed, there exists hardly a glimmer of recognition that any such thing ever occurred. No one censored or tried to block Ms. Lim’s openly-conducted interviews; now, the authorities could care less. But, for years, anyone caught mentioning the uprising or the exceedingly-brutal crackdown was made to pay dearly. On-the-scene news access was basically non-existent in China in 1989, though there were spin-off demonstrations elsewhere. Result? Today, a few hundred thousand older Chinese are probably left wondering if it was but a dream.

The Tiananmen Square Massacre is probably not an event that could be or have been imaginatively spun to state advantage, as was done in the cover-up and exploitation of 9/11. So, the whole affair was simply effectively repressed, blotted from the country’s memory. A generation later, it didn’t exist, never happened.

In the case of 9/11, by contrast, large majorities in virtually every other country know full well that rogue Muslems and OBL weren’t the culprits, and that the U.S. establishment was culpable. But, in the U.S., you’re an insane bleeding, out-of-your gourd un-American irresponsible rebel if you know that and try to make something of it. And even (maybe especially) the country’s pathetic excuses for “leftist” intellectuals will call you the same thing, with added vehemence.

And meanwhile, the increasingly transparent official and media lies about frequent and recurrent staged events since that, apparently, only we with the special glasses necessary to see unaided can see, keep proliferating – with our predictable response pointed to to further make the case that we’re just bonkers.

Rule Number X – Nothing will be what you may see. Evidence means nothing.

Soon, with big $$ on the line – “No, Titanium Jones didn’t drop the ball before crossing the goal line. It was just an unfortunately misleading live camera angle. The instant replay camera failed, so there’s no evidence for you to review. The call on the field stands. Nads win, as all experts predicted. Crazy Whiners, you lose!”

And anything and everything can and will go essentially that same way, until you’re earning Chinese-level wages and dumbed, if necessary tazed , into futility.

They can’t say 9/11 didn’t happen – in fact, it’s still a feeble and false excuse for every successive atrocity and farce they (the NWO consortium/puppet U.S. establishment via redundant alphabetical agencies whose very mandate is STUNTS) do. Even though your odds of choking to death on a pretzel are astronomically higher than you ever seeing an actual foreign terrorist not on a U.S. government pay list.

The truth is that they (the NWO consortium/puppet U.S. establishment via agencies whose mandate is STUNTS doesn’t even need an Event to spin – which is nothing new. The “Tonkin Gulf Incident”, for instance, was no incident at all. The “provocative events” in Syria and Ukraine were recycled varieties of “false-flags” – a term people are actually starting to use and productively wonder about.

In the rare instances when we have as much credible and incontrovertible evidence of What Really Happened, or Couldn’t Conceivably Have Happened As Told, Given Nature’s Laws, as we do with 9/11, the increasingly-desperate world (read U.S. citizenry) starving for some oxygen (truth) as to what’s really going on, badly needs us to persist and push what we demonstrably know to the breaking point – the False News Providers’/NWO paid liars’ breaking-point – the point at which NOTHING they ever say is ever going to be believed. That’s OUR mandate – to prevent amnesia setting in for good here, too.

OF IDEOLOGICAL MAINSPRINGS

Of Ideological Mainsprings

by James Hufferd, Ph.D.
Coordinator, 911 Truth Grassroots Organization

* * *

I’ve become increasingly aware lately that many in the 9/11 Truth community are, or tend to be, what I would call “nihilist” in their world view. That is, they profess to see nothing good whatsoever in the structure of the world we live in now. Accordingly, they want to see – if not abet – the whole thing getting dumped , more or less as in the proverbial days of Noah – particularly the Constitution of the United States – and start over afresh.

But, I’ve noted that what we’re to do after the deep-sixing is seldom suggested. Their thinking, as 9/11 Truthers, being, it seems, that the only way we can ever get a fair hearing on anything and a community-sanctioned full investigation of 9/11 is, somehow, by destroying everything else. I don’t see it, but that does seem to be their drift.

And many among those I’ve taken the liberty to characterize as “nihilists” or “nihilistic” observe that the whole structure of governance and organization of the society is surely rotted and contaminated all the way through. Hence, they even despair of any replacement structure or organization – in effect, an all-new society – possibly being any better, since the same human failures and excesses are bound to beset it, too.

In consequence, they typically declare themselves “anarchists”, and claim that the sovereignty of the human community ought to rest not in “We, the People” collectively, which, they point out, is the mostly deceitful cant of political discourse in the west since the Enlightenment, but that sovereignly should reside in the individual.

Now, what would this strikingly new apparent preference for the sovereignty of the individual in a stateless society, with whatever is done moving forward effected at the level of the individual, mean in practice, if the idea of a government, and presumably, organized, unrestrained and potentially bullying and ungoverned activity from privately financed concerns (most often likewise-ungoverned corporations) were likewise rejected as deceitful and likewise removed in practical terms out of fear and preference for their vaunted self-sufficiency?

Man as individual is capable of personal enjoyment, of helping or hindering others, private mental reflection extending precisely the finite distance outward his senses and memory can reach.

Collaborating and at the collective level, the common benefit potential and capability become infinitely greater and more varied, so that the individual (any and every individual) can benefit not only from there being many more hands at work and more finances to apply, but also numerous ideas and talents applied than no one individual alone will possess. Accordingly, associations are normally formed, and the potential for causing harm has to be relinquished and made subject to eternal vigilance within the association as the price of membership, creating rule of law.

The finest, most desperate cry of the relatively-powerless determined, holdout individualists, meanwhile, is: “Leave me alone! I can do everything for myself!” And, with that idea applied (which humans outgrew in practice at the dawn of the Paleolithic), few would long survive, and the perpetual crisis level would be such that it’s hard to see how 9/11 would ever get effectively investigated and its perpetrators brought to anything resembling justice.

Yet, that sort of “dropping out” (or giving up) sure seems to be at least the flavor of the month currently in the 9/11 Truth and Conspiracy Theorist (or, preferably, Conspiracy Analyst) communities.

But, don’t I at least agree that the institutional structure of U.S. governance and the organization of at least American society are rotten and contaminated to the core?

Well, they certainly are infected. But, in my estimation, the Constitution of the United States, with its current amendments and maybe one or two added, remains a workable formulation for a basically democratic society, which has been hijacked over the past X-number of years.

I think an apt analogy might be a perfectly operational car with an ample amount of water put in the gas, making the machine splutter and lurch. What has happened, in my humble opinion, is that, through bribes, elite bias in some quarters, and lots of trickery, the “We, the People” (meaning, obviously, flesh-and-blood people) have been replaced increasingly in stages since at least the 1870’s by corporations, international banks, and the super-rich as the constituents and sovereigns, the de facto citizens of the United States. And the common people know only what the above want them to, and eat, drink, drive, wear, and watch – and, in the mass, think – only what the above want them to.

But if the real, intended, flesh-and-blood citizens ever perceive that reality as clearly as I believe many of our number do (making dissidents out of us), we/they, the intended citizenry the Constitution and the country were originally designed for theoretically still have the power to flush all the water out of the machine, putting it back in fine operating order, and take back control of it, even divesting it from the global Central Banking system, as the Icelanders did, with us flesh-and-blooders in charge as the de facto citizens as intended instead.

So, don’t give up and go it alone – you won’t get the job done, and you won’t save the world.

James Tracy - The Witch Hunt Against Independent Research and Analysis

Cracking The “Conspiracy Theories’” Psycholinguistic Code: The Witch Hunt against Independent Research and Analysis

A new crusade appears to be underway to target independent research and analysis available via alternative news media. This March saw the release of “cognitive infiltration” advocate Cass Sunstein’s new book, Conspiracy Theories and Other Dangerous Ideas. In April, the confirmed federal intelligence-gathering arm, Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), released a new report, “Agenda 21: The UN, Sustainability, and Right Wing Conspiracy Theory.” Most recently, Newsweek magazine carried a cover story, titled, “The Plots to Destroy America: Conspiracy Theories Are a Clear and Present Danger.”

As its discourse suggests, this propaganda campaign is using the now familiar “conspiracy theory” label, as outlined in Central Intelligence Agency Document 1035-960, the 1967 memo laying out a strategy for CIA “media assets” to counter criticism of the Warren Commission and attack independent investigators of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. At that time the targets included attorney Mark Lane and New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, who were routinely defamed and lampooned in major US news outlets.

Declassified government documents have proven Lane and Garrison’s allegations of CIA-involvement in the assassination largely accurate. Nevertheless, the prospect of being subject to the conspiracy theorist smear remains a potent weapon for intimidating authors, journalists, and scholars from interrogating complex events, policies, and other potentially controversial subject matter.

As the title of Newsweek’s feature story indicates, a primary element of contemporary propaganda campaigns using the conspiracy theory/ist label is to suggest that citizens’ distrust of government imperatives and activities tends toward violent action. The “conspiracy theorist” term is intentionally conflated with “conspiracist,” thus linking the two in the mass mind. Images of Lee Harvey Oswald, Timothy McVeigh, and Osama bin Laden are subtly invoked when the magic terms are referenced. In reality, it is typically Western governments using their police or military who prove the foremost purveyors of violence and the threat of violence—both domestically and abroad.

In his Newsweek article, author and journalist Kurt Eichenwald selectively employs the assertions of the SPLC, Sunstein, and a handful of social scientists to postulate in Orwellian fashion that independent research and analysis of the United Nations’ Agenda 21, the anti-educational thrust of “Common Core,” the dangers of vaccine injury and water fluoridation, and September 11—all important policies and issues worthy of serious study and concern—are a “contagion” to the body politic.

In a functioning public, honest academics and journalists would uninhibitedly delve into these and similar problems–GMOs, state-sponsored terrorism, the dangers of non-ionizing radiation– particularly since such phenomena pose grave threats to both popular sovereignty and self determination. Such intellectuals would then provide important findings to foster vigorous public debate.

Absent this, segments of the populace still capable of critical thought are inclined to access and probe information that leads them to question bureaucratic edicts and, in some cases, suggest a potentially broader political agenda. In today’s world, however, such research projects carried out by the hoi polloi that are expressly reserved for government or foundation-funded technocrats “’distort the debate that is crucial to democracy,’” says Dartmouth political scientist Brendan Nyhan.

With the above in mind, a simple yet instructive exercise in illustrating the psycholinguistic feature of the conspiracy theory propaganda technique is to replace “conspiracy theories/ists” with the phrase, “independent research and analysis,” or “independent researchers.” Let us apply this to some passages from Eichenwald’s recent Newsweek piece.

For example, “Psychological research has shown that the only trait that consistently indicates the probability someone will believe in conspiracy theories independent research and analysis is if that person believes in other conspiracy theories independent research and analysis,” Eichenwald sagely concludes.

“One of the most common ways of introducing conspiracy theories independent research and analysis is to ‘just ask questions’ about an official account,’’’ says Karen Douglas, co-editor of the British Journal of Social Psychology and a senior academic ... at Britain’s University of Kent.”

In fact, substituting the phrases accordingly throughout the article significantly neutralizes its overall propagandistic effect.

Researchers agree; independent research and analysis are espoused by people at every level of society seeking ways of calming the chaos of life, sometimes by simply reinforcing convictions.

While the growth in the number of news outlets has helped spread independent research and analysis, it doesn’t compare to the impact of social media and the Internet, experts say.

“If you have social networks of people who are talking with one another, you can have independent research and analysis spread in a hurry,’’ says Cass Sunstein, a professor at Harvard Law School … “It literally is as if it was contagious.”

While some may dismiss independent researchers as ignorant or unstable, research has shown that to be false. “The idea that only dumb people believe this stuff is wrong,’’ says Dartmouth’s Nyhan.

People who more strongly believed in independent research and analysis were significantly less likely to use sunscreen or have an annual medical checkup.

According to a just-released report from the Southern Poverty Law Center, the independent research and analysis flowed in April at a hearing before Alabama’s Senate Education Committee about legislation to allow school districts to reject Common Core.

It’s true. Since September 11, 2001 the internet has increasingly allowed for everyday people to retrieve, study, and share information on important events and phenomena as never before. And as a recent study published in the prominent journal Frontiers of Psychology suggests, tendering “alternative conspiracy theories” to the government-endorsed explanations of September 11, 2001 is a sign of “individuation,” or psychological well being and contentment.

Such a condition is a clear danger to those who wish to wield uncontested political authority. Indeed, the capacity to freely disseminate and discuss knowledge of government malfeasance is the foremost counterbalance to tyranny. Since this ability cannot be readily confiscated or suppressed, it must be ridiculed, marginalized, even diagnosed as a psychiatric condition.

The recent abandonment of network neutrality may eventually further subdue the nuisance of independent research, thought, and analysis. Until then, the corporate media’s attempts to bamboozle and terrify the American public with the well-worn conspiracy theory meme will be a prevalent feature of what passes for news and commentary today.
