As France finds itself in the grips of martial law and its first mandatory curfew since it was occupied by the Nazis in 1944, there exists a number of questionable details surrounding the recent terrorist attacks in Paris.

8f1f7c88-255c-4343-bdbc-fecca1eac876_500Only hours after the first shots were fired, stories and reports are beginning to change and contradict one another. Considering the history of the French government, French Intelligence agencies and the Anglo-American/NATO Intelligence apparatus, particularly the recent events surrounding the Charlie Hebdo attacks that were exposed as false flags, one would be justified in wondering whether or not these recent attacks in Paris were of the same variety.

Below are a number of reasons to question the official story of the Paris terror attacks.

1.) How many gunmen? Already, the number of individuals involved in the Paris attacks is in question. While some reports suggested four shooters were involved, others suggested three. The majority of mainstream reports seem to be only acknowledging two shooters. So how many shooters were there? Two, three or four? One witness, Pierre Marie Bertin, a 36-year-old who was at the theater when the shooting began, stated that there were as many as four gunmen. Bertin described some male hostages who “went onto the balcony and tried to negotiate for the life of their wives with one of the guys [terrorists]. It was sickening.” Bertin recounted somewhat more detail than some other witnesses and was clear that there were as many as four gunmen. Australian news media is reporting that three gunmen have been killed.

This might seem inconsequential to many readers, but in informed researching circles it is well-known that the information that comes out shortly after the event is usually the most reliable. This is not to discount the existence of confusion related to panicked reports coming from eyewitnesses and the like. However, the information coming out early on has not yet been subjected to the top-down media revision that will inevitably take place as the story becomes molded to fit the narrative pushed by the individuals who either directed the attack at the higher levels or at least have connections with those who are able to control the manner in which various media outlets report the event. For instance, in times of false flag attacks, the initial reports may point to 5 gunmen. Very shortly after, reports may only mention two. Only a few hours after the attack, however, all references to more than one gunmen are removed entirely, with only the “lone gunman” story remaining. Any other mention of additional gunmen after this point is ridiculed as “conspiracy theory.”

2.) The types of weapons used – While some reports suggest that the attackers were using AK-47s, other reports are suggesting that shotguns were used. While the contradiction in reports can certainly be attributed to victims and witnesses simply not being aware of the type of weapons being used in the attacks and panic in the heat of the moment, there is none the less contradiction in the reports being issued. As of the time of the writing of this article there has been no clarification as to what type of weapons were used. Since the assailants were supposedly killed by police it should be clear what weapons they used.

3.) Were the gunmen killed or arrested? While the number of gunmen itself is in doubt, news reports coming from Fox and Sky are suggesting that a suspected gunmen was actually arrested. In fact, the suspect allegedly stated to police, “I am from ISIS” giving us all the information we need as for who is responsible for this attack.

4.) Gunmen connected to ISIS, gunmen connected to Syria – Along with the very convenient and immediate statement by an allegedly arrested suspect that he was from ISIS, we also have screams of a shooter that “This is for Syria!” This gives us all the information that we need regarding the motivation of the alleged attackers. They are from ISIS. They hate the French because the French are “attacking” ISIS and because somewhere in France in a very darkened corner, under the sofa, there are freedoms. ISIS hates freedoms. This is quite coincidental considering the fact that a Russian airliner was recently bombed, allegedly by ISIS – at least according to the West.

5.) The timing of the event – Aside from the obvious connotations derived from the attacks occurring on Friday the 13th, the Paris massacre has taken place shortly before a major climate summit that was set to take place in France. The French government was expecting massive protests they alleged could potentially become violent, by activists opposed to globalization and energy austerity. Interestingly enough, France had already planned to impose border controls starting on November 30th in anticipation of the U.N. Conference on Climate Change in Paris “because of the terrorist threat or risk of public disorder.” Needless to say, there will be no massive protest now considering the fact that 2015 France resembles the 1943 version of itself more than anything else.

6.) Security – Considering the fact that the security had been so heightened both on the heels of the Charlie Hebdo attacks and the anticipation of disorder for the U.N. Conference on Climate Change, how on earth did such a major terror attack slip through the hands of the DGSE? After all, France is nothing if not a police state. It is also giving the United States a run for its money in the contest for how much information it is able to nab up on its citizens. No doubt, we will be sold the line of “pre-civilized savages outsmarted first-world high end military surveillance states.”

7.) Drills – One hallmark of the false flag operation is the running of drills shortly before or during the actual attack. Many times, these drills will involve the actual sequence of events that takes place during the real life attack . These drills have been present on large scale false flags such as 9/11 as well as smaller scale attacks like the Aurora shooting.

For instance, as Webster Tarpley documents in his book 9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made In USA, at least 46 drills were underway in the months leading up to 9/11 and on the morning of the attack. These 46 drills were all directly related to the events which took place on 9/11 in some way or other. Likewise, the 7/7 bombings in London were running drills of exactly the same scenario that was occurring at exactly the same times and locations.

Although one reason may take precedence over the other depending on the nature and purpose of the operation drills are used by false flag operators for at least two reasons. One such purpose is the creation of intentional confusion if the drill is taking place during the actual attack. The other, more effective aspect, however, is using the drill as a cloak to plan the attack or even “go live” when it comes time to launch the event. Even more so, it gives the individuals who are involved in the planning of the event an element of cover, especially with the military/intelligence agency’s tight chain of command structure and need-to-know basis. If a loyal military officer or intelligence agent stumbles upon the planning of the attack, that individual can always be told that what he has witnessed is nothing more than the planning of a training exercise. This deniability continues all the way through to the actual “going live” of the drill. After the completion of the false flag attack, Coincidence Theory is used to explain away the tragic results.

All of this must be considered, when one reads reports suggesting that the UK conducted counter-terrorism drills earlier this year that included scenarios that involved terror attacks in Paris similar to those that took place on the Charlie Hebdo massacre. As the reports surrounding the UK drills were released, a number 10 spokesman confirmed “it had been agreed that future exercises, which take place on a regular basis, should seek to learn from events in France.” David Cameron himself stated that there was a need for police “to call on military help if there was a major emergency.”

8.) Charlie Hebdo – The recent Paris attacks were similar to the Charlie Hebdo massacre that occurred earlier this year. The Charlie Hebdo attacks, however, were largely revealed as a false flag operation. Evidence for which can be seen in my article “15 Signs the Charlie Hebdo Attack Was a False Flag.” Thus, there exists a clear precedent for such attacks in France, albeit on a much larger scale.

9.) Who controls ISIS? For many, claims that the attackers belong to ISIS is a deal breaker. For these individuals, ISIS is a shadowy terrorist organization that supports itself and has created a caliphate in eastern Syria and western Iraq that can scarcely be defeated (except when the Russians bomb it). However, the facts do not support such a shallow understanding of the ISIS terrorist organization. ISIS was entirely created, funded and directed by the United States, Britain, France and other NATO countries. Its actions have been coordinated by the Anglo-American Intelligence apparatus for geopolitical purposes all across the world both at home and abroad. For this reason, the declaration that ISIS committed a terrorist attack in Paris is by no means a get-out-of-jail-free card for the Western Intelligence apparatus. Instead, it is the trademark of their handiwork. Please see these articles for more information on the nature of ISIS: here, here, here and here.

While the information presented above may not be enough evidence to conclude that the Paris attacks were false flag attacks, it is reason enough to question the official story thus far. If these attacks are indeed placed in the lap of ISIS, however, all fingers should immediately point to NATO and the Atlanticist Intelligence apparatus. It is they who control ISIS and they who bear the responsibility for its actions.

80 thought on “9 Reasons To Question The Paris Terror Attacks”
  1. Thanks for the quick confirmation of my instinctive take on this situation. I think you have pretty well nailed it here. I have already predicted that this will be used as a pretext to officially put NATO “boots on the ground” in Syria to bolster their long running covert proxy effort to remove Assad from power and install their puppet regime there.

    I was predicting that they would pin this on their very own Muslim Terrorist Bogeyman, aka “ISIS”, and use it as their pretext for a full scale invasion of Syria. It looks like WWIII, which has been quietly simmering in Syria and Ukraine for the past two years, will soon reach a full boil.

    1. Yes, I’m afraid so. I also noticed that they pushed, rather in order, 9-11, Charlie Hebdo and the alleged “bombing” of the Russian airliner. The Russians have tested the airliner for explosive residue and found none. They are asking why the US and GB are pushing the explosive meme. Me too.

      The evidence so far tends to support hacking of the autopilot. My guess would be that they intend to spin the plane crash in a way that “requires’ those boots on the ground.

      One advantage of having so much chaos and evil occurring simultaneously is that you can stage an event and spin it to cover any number of memes you’re after. Oddly, I noticed a distinct lack of any mention of correlation between the recent invasion of “refugees” and this. Obviously that is not one of their selected talking points.

        1. I sure hope so but Washington’s Assad’s got to go rhetoric is absurd.

          Why? They Can’t explain.

          Because they tried an Arab Spring in Syria as in Egypt that failed? Terrible
          250k Dead………

          Obama needs to tell his masters I can’t do the “Assad has to go” act.

          Truly Pathetic….

          Why do we any wars in 2015?

        2. I’m afraid Obongo’s boss wants Al Assad gone. If I were a betting man (and I’m not), I’d say that now that Russia is smashing USrael’s ISIS, ISIL, Fred, to little pieces they have to do something.

          I think the something will be to push for a “no fly zone’ and a ‘safety zone”. The safety zone will be right on the supply route to Turkey.

          As we can see already, this little production has provided an excuse to have France “lead the charge”. They hope to take control away from Putin and have him “assist” them. That way they can keep their spawn from total annihilation.

          This is a dangerous game. Russia knows who invented ISIS and has said so publicly. He basically called them on their lies. How do they gracefully stop him from bombing their “enemy”?

          Putin was asked in by Al Assad. He has a legal right to be there. The others do not. They now have anti-aircraft units there. Russia can jam all of them but it could get really ugly fast.

          As I said earlier, I still think the autopilot was intercepted. If Putin admits this he will have no choice but to declare war as only a few have this technology. By going with the “bomb” story he can claim ISIS did it in retaliation. Of course he and everyone else knows who ISIS is.

          Whatever happens someone will pay for the airliner. His citizenry may not know who owns ISIS but his military does. He will be forced to retaliate to placate his military if nothing else.

  2. Most likely reason for this attack – my vote –
    “the Paris massacre has taken place shortly before a major climate summit that was set to take place in France. The French government was expecting massive protests they alleged could potentially become violent, by activists opposed to globalization and energy austerity.”

    Who knew that there was going to be massive protests by climate “deniers” seeing through the climate change hoax?

  3. For what it’s worth, here is the Vigilant Citizen’s reaction, today. He relates it to the Economist magazine cover we have seen discussed in these pages of late:

    Make of it what you will.

    I would only add that his interpretation of the numbers on the two arrows seems difficult to understand, by me, but if he’s correct it would make perfect sense. Fake events are planned. And clues planted don’t have to be the obvious interpretation the truth: misdirection, very subtle, is the way these monsters operate. So the VC might be right.

  4. I couldn’t agree more with the analysis. I might add that having drills in operation enable the orchestrators to place their people in proximity to control the reporting.

    Actually, to believe that these events “just happen” is very naive. Huge groups of people do not, on their own, decide to migrate. “Terrorist groups” do not come into being and perform on cue “naturally”.

    All of these puzzle pieces are being moved into position. We cannot expect answers to our questions from those who are complicit. Our purpose should be to expose these psyops for what they are, period.

    The worst we can do is to react in the manner anticipated anticipated by the perpetrators. It isn’t too difficult to see that this is heating up to a final denouement. This will not be confined to Europe.

    The same people who brought us PNAC are working their plan. They will continue to do so. The only question is whether we’ll blindly assist them or not. I get the sense that some of these minor provocations are designed to wear us down. The grand finale is soon to come.

    1. And the public does not spontaneously go on board with a government that shuts down a city and bans protests, as in Paris. The “sign me up” mentality is suspicious to anyone who knows the perverse fighting spirit of the French. I hear that one this is true here, they are saying that Marine Le Pen’s thunder has been stolen by all the decisive acts Hollande has initiated, that her majority is no longer assured as a nationalist party.

  5. Surprisingly, Brandon excludes from mention the G20 conference occurring tomorrow and Monday. The Terrorist attack would solidify support for War in Syria, although against who is still in doubt. The editor of the National Interest states that this attack would increase the possible convergence of Russian and US foreign policy, allowing a solution to the bloodshed in Syria. Since the National Interest may be a CIA asset, this may be a change in US foreign policy.

    Also, Lophatt, who has been on top of the crash of the Russian airliner, has reported that Russia does not think that the crash was due to an explosion, but to an override of the piloting of the plane that caused it to form maneuvers that separated the tail section from the fuselage.

    There are not a lot of countries that possess the technology for such an override. If Washington wanted Russia to follow the US lead in Syria as much as possible, both the plane crash and the Paris shootings served the same purpose.

    1. John Kerry has been looking for a way to bring Russia into the fold. Boston Strong – what was that? In his own bailiwick, it was alleged that we in Boston, like the Muscovites, were attacked by Chechen fanatics to a very nebulous purpose. Now he seems to be trying to get Russia on our side, quite openly. In Boston, there is a sign at the French consulate which says “Paris Strong” and a building next to the path of the Boston Marathon finish line, has lighted the periphery of its roof (and it is a big long roof) in a series of red, white and blue light bulbs. That was fast work.

      I saw a Syrian connection at the Marathon bombing and was called nuts for doing that, even though there was already tension in the attempt to remove Assad. Now I hear they are about the make Putin and Assad an offer they cannot refuse, of having Assad step down from office so as to stop the war in the area.

      This is looking like a strategy of tension moment, another twist of the rope, not unrelated to Boston.

      What about those white roses that show up oh-so-spontaneously like yellow ribbons?

      1. I thought Washington was backing away from it’s position of Assad stepping down, Musings. If not, there is no solution.

        We’ll know soon enough at the G-20 conference on Sunday and Monday.

  6. It is the modus operandi of intelligence agencies around the world to let these events happen on purpose “”LIHOP”. This is the key, these stooges are stage managed, useful idiots manipulated by Mil/Intel who know exactly what they are going to do and when. You think DGSE and others are ignoring Twitter hashtags from accounts they used for Charlie Hebdo? This is true for 911 with Tim Osman & Co. and everything since then. Problem Reaction Solution, it is a two thousand year old formula for dealing with enemies from within and external.

    If you read the heavy article below you will have to believe Anonymous (CIA front) had foreknowledge, but the DGSE did not. Really?:

      1. The whole thing is completely absurd. Even the BBC is asking how the French intelligence missed this. I think will point to the obvious without saying “they dropped the ball on purpose”.

  7. I got the same sick feeling in my gut with the Paris attacks that I did with 9-11 – the nauseating feeling that you’re being manipulated – especially with the wall-to-wall media coverage. He could have added wall-to-wall media coverage as #10.

    1. Me too. All of these things are designed to manipulate. I cannot abide being manipulated.

      It is often difficult to see how these things sow so much confusion in the minds of those who should know better.

      It has become clear to me that my definition of “real” is different from most others. To me “real” means “naturally occurring”. It is not dependent on whether anyone was injured or killed.

      Having said that, I DO of course have an interest in people’s fates. It could not be any clearer to me that these things are done expressly to manipulate.

      So, to your point, both the manipulation and the media hype is unbearable. It is also more difficult to simply laugh at these things when people are injured or killed. That is not funny.

      On the other hand, something has to be done to point out to the vast amorphous mass out there in Television Land that these things are contrived. If we want them to stop, for whatever reason, losing their effectiveness is the key.

      Just like in the Umpqua Operation, when the locals told His Nibbs to stay home it was precious. That is the reaction they need to have from any targeted community.

  8. The NY Times headlines the role of the French attacks in the G-20 conference in Turkey tomorrow, stating that Obama and Putin have arranged a sideline meeting to discuss Syria. Washington has Proclaimed or Pretended to attack ISIS while actually attacking Syria, and supporting ISIS.

    But possibly Washington is changing its policy. Possibly not. Certainly Russia isn’t. What comes out of the G-20 meeting may well change at least part of the world.

  9. Michelle’s Mirror links to this(

    “Update: French police confirmed a total of six attacks in Paris, including two suicide attacks and one bombing near the Stade de France, as well as attacks at the Bataclan concert hall and a restaurant. French news outlets reported that police launched an assault on the Bataclan concert hall, where gunmen were holding 100 hostages. According to The Guardian, eight attackers are dead, several of whom died after detonating suicide belts.”

    I want to see the cherrie pie. “…several of whom died after detonating suicide belts.” Lots of pictures of blood and gut splatter should be available, if the report is true.

    1. Pat,
      Michelle’s Mirror is correct. All we have do is implement ISIS Free Zones in American and we will all be safe.

      Ya know like the Gun Free Zones.

      I just love being a good Liberal… NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      sarcasm/ off

    1. Thank you for posting this. Right at the beginning, look for the big guy in the white t-shirt on the right. As shots are fired, he falls. Someone goes to help him. He is clutching his arm. Then, he gets up, then he walks away, then he trots away.
      At 42 sec, the videographer pans left and we see two people dragging two limp bodies up the street. There is a wet smear where they are being dragged from, but they leave no other mark on the street further along.
      The camera pans away. At about 2:34, the camera pans back to the left and one of the guys has been standing in the street holding the arms of this body — because he’s not tending the guy so he can’t be wounded — for over a minute and a half, and when the camera pans back to him, he starts dragging the body again.
      In the beginning, when people come out they are hurrying, but once they get a little ways up the street they slow down, as though they’re now out of danger.
      One of the bodies lying in front of the door raises its head, later is partly sits up, then lies down again.

    2. Hi Tammie… There are sooo many things about the video you see as real that scream “fake!” I see someone already listed some of those clues. One other thing I’ve seen is analysis of the person who is holding onto the windowsill. That individual is clearly attached to something that is holding them in place. At one point they even let go with one hand and are miraculously (if it was real) holding up their body weight with one hand while turning their body sideways and looking down. To watch the entire video focused on that aspect alone is laughable. The actors all do a horrible job at making it look the least bit believable. And of course the only footage we are shown is from journalists who happen to be in the right spot at the right time. Out if the tens of thousands supposedly at the game and the 1,500 we’re told were at the concert venue it haven’t seen even one cellphone video or photo. The concert alone would had produced a large amount of footage since there are pretty much always a number of camera phones recording throughout an entire live show. It’s is early yet and we’ll all be learning more about the hoax, but at this point I seriously doubt there was even one death.


    From the Transcript:

    “As luck would have it, in the morning at the Paris SAMU (EMT), a multi-site attack exercise had been planned, so we were prepared. What needs to be known is there was a mobilization of police forces, firemen, EMTs, associations who came [to participate] and we tried to save as many people as possible.”

    I know I’m singing to the choir here, but what more needs to be said or known?

    1. Does anyone know how to find documentation of this drill, like an exercise plan, etc? I tried searching for SAMU Paris but couldn’t find anything that looked like a calendar or manual for a drill.

  11. Irrespective to whether this was real event or not the fact that the drills pre-drills are always done and the actual stagings are consistently without evidence. Never are there actual graphic evidence live shots and if so they are easily refutable. That said it is still terror in what will come to further erode unalienable rights of freedom.

    Obviously, this is coming to America in a big way. As a bankrupt corporation with debt that can never be repaid, there will have to be a reckoning. This is what I$I$ is all about. Yes we are IS. Insolvent State.

    What coming with the TPP/TTIP and the SDR’s will expose the corporation and fraud under a fiction, far greater than these stagings. If you want to read a coming fiction for 2016 look at the military drill UWEX-16 Unconventional Warfare Exercise for 2016, January through March in Texas, NC and ?. The “X” is ‘we the people’

  12. I as a good American Citizen forced meself to watch the Democratic Debate Tonight.
    If anyone has any spare SSRi’s for my headache that would be appreciated.
    Anyways, if BHO ordered the CIA to take out all the Republicans in a Coup. And my only choice for Tyranny was Malley. Hillary or Sanders.
    I’d choose Sanders.
    Because on my way to my FEM Camp Re-Education . I’d go knowing Glass-Steagal was reimplemented and we may have a chance to rein in Wall Street…..
    Depressing at Best.

    1. What is this “democracy” of which you speak, mon ami? Actually even saying democracy and NATO in the same breath is laughable. It is the muscle of the IMF.

      Libya is a stunning success, just ask ’em. Everything they do is a “success”. It comes out just like they intended.


    Case solved French version of Lucky Larry.

    While fatally shooting innocent people they did manage to find time to shout “This is for Syria” and Allah hu Akbar

    The Bataclan theater, targeted in Friday night’s Paris terror attacks, was Jewish-owned for decades, but was sold two months ago, its former owners said. Pascal Laloux, one of the theater’s former owners, said Saturday that the theater was “sold in September after 40 years.” No info is given as to who are the new owners Source

    1. Probably double-insured it. The “bombed” cafe has no broken windows. Must be made from passport material.

      The presence of drills has been confirmed by multiple sources. It was even the same scenario. Sound vaguely familiar?

      The absence of images other than “official” is suspicious. The ones that are released, as we know from other operations, can be made at any time and cannot be trusted.

      Just for the sake of consistency I’ll say it again, whether anyone died or was hurt is not the definition of a hoax or staged event.

      If we knew nothing of this other than the images and narrative (and that is essentially what we know), the mere manner in which it is being stage managed tells the tale.

      1. “…whether anyone died or was hurt is not the definition of a hoax or staged event.”

        Exactly. I refer to this as the ‘level of involvement’ for any created event. By this I mean it is a continuum from 1 or a few actors (with all others be unwilling participants), to the entire event is actors. The same applies to how much of the event was ‘real’, how much was ‘faked’, and how much did not occur at all (just reported as such).

        My take of Paris Friday 13th as this point is;
        Several of the shootings at the cafe’s were real, and unwilling participants died. (imo for the occultist actual sacrificial killing(s) is needed to ensure success)
        The only bomb that occurred was outside the football stadium. This made the event REAL for all those inside the stadium and of course threatened President Hollande (important part of the narrative).
        The entire rock concert story is fabrication, as is the terrorist’s blowing themselves up.

        Imo the alt/truth community gets embroiled/distracted by those pushing one explanation for an event. Since it’s impossible to prove exactly what happened, we need to focus on the tell-tale signs that signal a false-flag event, and not get bogged down in the details.

  14. There are sooo many things about the video you see as real that scream “fake!” I see someone already listed some of those clues. One other thing I’ve seen is analysis of the person who is holding onto the windowsill. That individual is clearly attached to something that is holding them in place. At one point they even let go with one hand and are miraculously (if it was real) holding up their body weight with one hand while turning their body sideways and looking down. To watch the entire video focused on that aspect alone is laughable. The actors all do a horrible job at making it look the least bit believable. And of course the only footage we are shown is from journalists who happen to be in the right spot at the right time. Out if the tens of thousands supposedly at the game and the 1,500 we’re told were at the concert venue it haven’t seen even one cellphone video or photo. The concert alone would had produced a large amount of footage since there are pretty much always a number of camera phones recording throughout an entire live show. It’s is early yet and we’ll all be learning more about the hoax, but at this point I seriously doubt there was even one death.

    1. As with all these events, I avoid the vast majority of TV news, but in looking briefly around at various web sites, I have to agree with Greg: where are the iPhone videos, and if there are any, can they be verified? Have I missed them? I’m not talking about someone standing far away and aiming at a bunch of cops. Where are the on-the-spot iPhone/Android phone vids of the action taking place? No one have the where-with-all to stick one out a window (while crouching below it) from one of those Paris apartment buildings?

      And yes, every 20-something has a phone at these concerts (hell, it WAS a “metal” concert for all the hip Parisians – so hip we’ve never heard of the band here in the US) – and yet, someone didn’t immediately point theirs in the direction of the “noise” when it first occurred?

      I know, if true, fight or flight takes over, the will to survive a horrible event certainly would supersede pulling out a phone to record what’s happening – but just on the law of averages, given that so many were involved at the various “attack sites,” surely there was one brave soul, even at a distance, who started recording? It’s second nature now to an entire generation to record events – why not this one? (Or any of the others that have happened recently.)

      Did all of the communication cell towers go down, reportedly like on 9/11?

      What about the young Brit woman, in the one TV interview I saw on PBS before turning it off, who supposedly survived the cafe blasting, and then ran to her nearby apartment with her companion? No iPhone shots as she is running away or even as she is moving forward, if only to capture her fear for posterity (like they all do)? Her laptop camera and Skype were working, so we know she’s not electronically illiterate.

      That being said, at this point, if iPhone vids now emerged I think I’d be doubtful of them since the attacks were a couple days ago. Immediate uploads – where are the immediate uploads?

      I think of all the stuff being fed to us, the lack of a proliferation of various on the spot iPhone/Android vids is the most suspect.

  15. Crop circles are known to exists in abundance in France. Could there be a connection to an extraterrestrial force who would subvert our society from within?

  16. I’m calling bullshit on this … the NFL games look like that had rehearsed ceremonies for weeks or months in advance. Pulling off the choreography involved takes more than a couple of days.

  17. “Many times, these drills will involve the actual sequence of events that takes place during the real life attack.”

    It has been noted that there has been a drill that has coincided with every attack in the last 15 years…but the one thing that has been lacking is any report on said drill, or any result from.

    What I mean is this: the drill is purported to prepare us for some terrible occurrence, but we have as of yet been presented with a report from one single drill, detailing what happened, and what we have learned from the attack that happened to occur simutaneously alongside said drill that would enable us to predict and/or prevent said attack.

    Isn’t that the entire purpose of running these drills?

  18. The most obvious result of this attack will be NSA monitoring of computer gaming networks. I think that’s where they want to go with this. They are claiming the terrorists used console and in game chats to make their plans.

    1. Pat,
      I think you’re right that one of the goals to be pursued après Paris will be the end of internet encryption. The MSM has been blathering about it all day.

      The government finds end to end encryption to be an outrageous affront to its authority. They call it the “dark web” and “off-the-grid.” MSNBC in explaining I,t appears to be totally ignorant of online activity:

      “It is a new battlefield out there. A challenging one, too. ISIS is using everything from the Deep Web to video games, yes, that’s video games, to plot their attacks. You can chat with your friends in private groups, even send hidden messages online live.”

      I can’t imagine anything more frightening.

      The intelligence community needs to change the paradigm about what they think about surveillance, one analyst advised. Silicon Valley itself is clearly in danger of collaboration with the Islamic entity. Here are some quotes I picked up in under an hour:

      Army General Barry McCaffrey, on the intractability of certain Americans:

      “Snowden’s impact on our intelligence collection has been devastating, and Silicon Valley’s unwillingness to cooperate fully with NSA is a disappointment to many of us.”

      Ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee Diane Feinstein, on confronting her Silicon Valley constituents:

      “(The terrorists) have apps to communicate on that cannot be pierced, even with a court order. So they have a kind of secret way of being able to conduct operations and operational planning. So we should take this very, very seriously.

      “I have asked for help, and I have not gotten any help. I think that Silicon Valley has to take a look at their products because if you create a product that allows evil monsters to communicate in this way to behead children, to strike innocents, whether it’s at a game in a stadium, in a small restaurant in Paris, take down an airliner, that’s a big problem. So we need high tech’s help in securing an internet that even with a court order you can’t get to what they’re saying. That’s a big problem.”

      And finally, former Secretary of Defense William Cohen, with a look at the future:

      “Paris is the shape of things to come… Technology is running well ahead of our ability to contain the technology itself. I would not be surprised if ten or fifteen years from now we would see the emergence of a “Minority Report” type of film become a reality in our society where we try, in fact, to predict, engage in predictive analytics, in terms of who’s going to commit a crime.”*

      *Note that this is one of the ways in which predictive programming works. Even though Spielberg’s “Minority Report” was ostensibly AGAINST the concepts of pre-crime and intrusive surveillance, Cohen is able to use the film title as shorthand for the programs he’d like to see rolled out, knowing that his reference to “predictive analytics” will be generally understood.

      1. It’s tempting to get into the flaws in that amazing movie Minority Report, even though I know it’s questionable authenticity is not Toni’s reason for referencing it. The parallel of precrime and predictive analytics is well taken. The many instances of flipping the goodguy/badguy dichotomy in the flick, such as when the apparently evil eye surgeon turns out to be more interested in redemption than revenge, reminds me of the uncertain character of X Sec of State William Cohen who at one time revealed the true state of scalar interferometry in it’s weaponized form that can create and steer hurricanes, cause volcanic eruptions and earthquakes followed by Tsunamis and generally act as catastrophic weapons of war.

        Okay, so I won't go into how unnecessary it is to switch out your eyeballs to fool an iris scanner in a time when tek is advanced enough for real time facial recognition and ad delivery, robot surveillance spiders, and eyeball transplants. And more-so, I won't elaborate on the unforgivable oversight that didn't immediately lock out John Anderton's iris patterns from the Precrime Center upon the warrant of his arrest. He acquired his new eyeballs in order to foil the scanners that would i.d. him before he gets to headquarters, and no one can tell me in these times of tek wonder that a hologramic generator wouldn't do the trick and mask his eyes without the hideous sacrifice. 

        But the reason for this comment beside showing some appreciation for Toni’s work; when it comes to phase shifting character and the overturning of the pernicious meme and myth of pure evil, we are an open book and study to the very forces that are out to subjugate every thing that makes life worth living. But even the Nazis had an occasional solder who saw through the foolishness of having the conscience become a mere niggle in the depths of it’s banishment. It is to Joseph Spy who may be on the fence and is troubled by the enormous implications of tragic consequence from a steady onslaught of deception that this site is concerned about. I direct my advice to Joe Spy who is living a double standard and doesn’t fully realize that torture is a boomerang. That privacy isn’t a hiding place for terrorists. That the curtailment of privacy is terrorism. That predictive analytics is nothing but prejudice that is prohibited by the common law that lives with us still. You must realize soon because this is the time of reckoning and dishonor is true agony.

        1. Dalin Hale, you mention this quote from propagandist William Cohen:

          “Others [terrorists] are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves… So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations…It’s real, and that’s the reason why we have to intensify our [counterterrorism] efforts.”

          Since this quote is from 1997, it appears Cohen has been a Predictive Programming spokesperson for awhile.

          In the same remarks Cohen presages his current push for intrusive surveillance by warning of the threat posed by “living in the Information Age.” In the future, he predicts, terrorists will try to communicate, and people will have access to information who “will not act responsibly, but rather act in a terrorist type of fashion.”

          Yep, he’s been on the long con for awhile.

          As for “Minority Report,” it appears that you’ve thought a lot about it! I would make just one point.

          The technology choices you find to be problematic were made for cinematic reasons, I think. They are more graphic than what better technology might look and feel like. When we see the eye surgery, it’s meant to evoke revulsion, and to recall the famous razor and eyeball scene in Luis Buñuel’s Un Chien Andalou.

          Anderton’s dependence on the eye surgeon symbolizes his utter vulnerability to the dangerous world outside his Pre-crime unit. As he recuperates, his temporary blindness mimics the new way he must interpret the world without the visions of the future provided by the Pre-cogs.

          In this way, Spielberg externalizes his metaphors into dramatic action. The Spider Robots, who climb up on people to perform identifying eye scans, become the metaphor for intrusive surveillance. It’s made especially effective by the abject way in which people submit to the procedure.

        2. Toni,
          When I posted my comment on an android tablet it showed up with the middle paragraph mostly missing, and only “Okay, so I won’t go into how unnecessary it is to s” When I got to my pc it read, “Okay, so I won’t go into how unnecessar” But that variation is only a minor detail. It’s just that your reply seemed as if the paragraph did show on your computer. I accepted the mysterious edit as possibly fortuitous and left it alone. The following is the paragraph:

          “Okay, so I won’t go into how unnecessary it is to switch out your eyeballs to fool an iris scanner in a time when tek is advanced enough for real time facial recognition and ad delivery, robot surveillance spiders, and eyeball transplants. And more-so, I won’t elaborate on the unforgivable oversight that didn’t immediately lock out John Anderton’s iris patterns from the Precrime Center upon the warrant of his arrest. He acquired his new eyeballs in order to foil the scanners that would i.d. him before he gets to headquarters, and no one can tell me in these times of tek wonder that a hologramic generator wouldn’t do the trick and mask his eyes without the hideous sacrifice.”

          Anyway, thanks for your reply. Please tell me the condition of the post that you received.

        3. Oh, yes! I did read your “lost” text, by cutting and pasting it into a word app. I’ve seen this anomaly before. So I was responding to your entire post, though I neglected to make that clear. I should have posted the text like you did, as long as I had it.

    1. And the school (community college) where my husband works got a bomb scare (or, more accurately, “a vague bomb threat” sent “via chat”). Bomb squad came, searched, and deemed everyone safe.

      A bit (10 miles or so) to the south, in Costa Mesa, an entire middle school was placed on lockdown because a witness claimed to have “maybe” seen someone who looked like a cop recently fired for child molestation in the vicinity.

      No, I’m not making this up.

      Keep on “See(ing) something, say(ing) something” all you Patriots! Keep us safe…at ANY COST! No price is ever too high!

      1. I just had to throw this line in:

        ““If you hear something and think it’s coming from the park, it’s probably the training,” Shoemaker said.

        If it doesn’t sound like it’s coming from the park or the hospital, call the station, he said.”

        The Real Shooting ALWAYS occurs After the Event is finished.
        So, sometime after 2pm the (Real) Active Shooter will emerge……

        1. This is the creepiest line in the article for me:

          “If it doesn’t sound like it’s coming from the park or the hospital, call the station, he said.”

          Also, how often do they shut down Magic Mountain? That takes some bucks.

        2. I am one mile from Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital, within earshot of guns fired, sirens and helicopters. It was all quiet on this western front during the time given, 10AM – 2 PM. Even the sky was powder blue for a change. But at precisely 6 PM all hell broke loose. The delay may have been a fluke or pre-planned. It lasted till 10 PM.

          The announced closing of Magic Mountain had me wonder too. Not quite Disneyland, but it does attract a large number of visitors.

          Regardless of what one thinks of David Icke, he made sense yesterday in an interview. He said that “tptb” would like nothing more than to erect a fence around the globe, corralling humans like livestock for easy control. Since it can’t be done they are implementing Plan B, having ourselves fence us in by staging fear theater all over the globe. All the bomb scares in schools have been false alarms as far as I know.

        3. Nice catch!

          It’s hard to believe that there aren’t more of these services around. Historically, what has been done about crime scene clean up? Blood and tissue are biohazards. I can’t help but think of the guy pressure-washing the Ebola-barf off the sidewalk, or the (alleged) Isla Vista cleanup after the Eliott Rodger incident.

          This would be an interesting avenue for investigation.

        4. Anne, yes. That’s why I keep harping about “shelter in place”. It’s like “sit Fido, stay”. Given the propensities of the Stasi lately I think they would probably shoot you if you just ignored them and walked away.

          So David Icke is right. It’s an “invisible fence” that they’re erecting. Prisons don’t have to have walls. Most people will make their own prisons .

          Many years ago I watched a film of a mass execution. I think it was the Cheka. What amazed me was that there were only a couple of armed guards and they were largely distracted. One by one they lined up knowing that to do so was certain death. Wouldn’t you think that at least one or two of them would rush the guard and try to get his gun?

          Let alone by the psychopaths we are all largely nice people. We want a pleasant life and happiness for our families. We don’t want to control others. Given a choice, we’ll try to help others.

          I think the deeper mystery of all this is why there are those who live for evil. We have so much brilliance and creativity to offer. Instead we are forced into wars for control. Maybe we need to learn not to look to others for ‘leadership”. We need to stop asking permission and simply do.

        5. Anne, so glad to here there was no physical damage, though I agree there is an intent to cause psychic damage with these drills.

          But now the LA County can relax. Having carried out their mandatory exercises (use it, or lose it!), they can sit back and wait for the grant money to roll in.
