Truth and Shadows

The speed is admirable. Barely seven weeks after the murky events of June 12th in Florida’s Pulse gay nightclub, Kevin Barrett’s latest instant false flag exposé is already providing valuable insights and perspectives. In fact, Orlando False Flag: The Clash of Histories has just gone up for sale at and is also available at createspace.

The speed is important because the urgency is great. False flag operations remain the prime drivers of the maximum illusion “war on terror” and ongoing aggressive actions against Russia, China, Syria and others by the imperial American Empire, its allies and vassals—all masked as “the West.” World War III is not out of the question. The path to unimaginable destruction is being paved with the most sophisticated and far-reaching fear campaign of all time, founded on the destabilizing delusion of the “extremist jihadist threat.”

As early as the Gunpowder Plot of 1605, false flag events have unfailingly enabled “rule by crisis.” The pulpits of the Church of England were the media of that day, spreading the King James Version of the event. In his acceptance speech of July 21st Donald Trump followed history’s script. As the July 22nd headline in the Toronto Star reported: “For a United States ‘in crisis,’ Trump presents himself as the only solution.” He would have had a much harder time selling his odious self that way, without the “war on terror,” without Nice, without San Bernardino, without a “terror plot” uncovered at the Rio Olympics. And without Orlando.

In today’s infosphere it’s the combined electronic propaganda pulpits of the mainstream media that instantly reach and preach the false flag official narratives to gulled populations, even while diligently censoring suspicious anomalies and utterly failing to investigate—or even report.

Just one recent example: the North American media blackout of the incredibly arrogant demand by the French anti-terrorist branch (SDAT) for the erasure of footage from 140 of Nice’s 1,000 municipal video cameras, for a 24-hour period from before the beginning of the Nice “terrorist attack” the night of July 14—a demand unprecedented in French history.

As Craig McKee wrote here on August 1st in “Surreal Summer of ‘Terror:’ Fight to Destroy Nice Video, Creepy Orlando Musical Numbers, and a Killer Robot,” North American media he searched have been blatantly gatekeeping on that stunning kill-the-video development (covered, by the way, by Le Figaro, whose story headline translates to, “Nice attack: the city refuses to destroy 24 hours of CCTV images.” My own instant search the afternoon of 25 July of the websites of The Globe and Mail and The Toronto Star likewise turned up nothing.

Le Figaro has in the past been used as a source quite a few times by these papers. Suddenly Le Figaro has become not quotable on a “man bites dog” development. The stench is overwhelming. It’s as if all the security and “anti-terror” police farted at once, and the media can’t smell a thing.

Because of Barrett’s timeliness, he’s been able to include Nice and the damning video destruction demand, in his Afterword, a masterful identification of false flag ops as history’s deadliest deceits and current blockers of human evolution. His further identification of Israel’s prime role in many false flag ops seems irrefutable.

The psychopathic perps behind the globalization of Operation Gladio are concussing the human mind, creating a false consciousness, an all-encompassing bogus reality.

This is taken for granted in Orlando False Flag: The Clash of Histories. As Barrett writes early on: “…cutting against the grain of mainstream propaganda in one way or another…is the most important intellectual task of our age.”

This is why it’s so important that the anomalies and absurdities and impossibilities of each latest one be revealed, somewhere, as early as possible. Barrett has undertaken this challenge. Shortly after the Charlie Hebdo events he published (in April 2015) We Are NOT Charlie Hebdo!: Free Thinkers Question the French 9/11. Then shortly after San Bernardino he published (in January 2016) ANOTHER French False Flag?: Bloody Tracks from Paris to San Bernardino.

The new book is divided into three parts. Part 1 is “What Really Happened in Orlando?” Part 2 is “Historical Context: Contesting the Narrative.” Part 3 is “Islam, homosexuality, and Cultural Politics.”

To me the strongest chapters in Orlando are the two longest ones. They’re long because both offer historical context, a somewhat global overview and much supporting evidence. The first, in Part 1, is Robert David Steele’s “The Orlando Mass Casualty Event: A False Flag Drama, Atrocity, or Hybrid?” The other, in Part 2, is Joachim Hagopian’s “Orlando’s Geopolitical Context: The Empire’s Post-9/11 Hegelian-Style Warfare Against Both the World and American Citizens.”

Steele, a veteran of the CIA who outgrew it to become a leading proponent of an “open source world,” lists 70 Orlando anomalies. Like most if not all lists, his includes some overlappings and a couple that IMHO don’t belong.

But 65 or so keepers nail Orlando as fake. For instance: no abandoned cars at the club, no ambulances, non-existent doctors, the laughing winking cop, the high fives, and crisis actors taking “victims” toward, rather than away, from the nightclub. The surreal fakery being determined, the remaining questions suggested in his chapter’s title, are large.

One of the most intriguing ideas for me is in his point 18: “Media-Based Evidence of Complicity & Cover-Up?” He suggests the mantra “love is stronger than hate”—highlighted just three days after the events by the biggest names in Broadway—may be one appropriated to serve the NWO agenda: essentially “Don’t rebel, stay submissive.” Steele urges viewing the video.

Hagopian at the outset offers, as his prime analytical tool, Hegel’s formula of problem-reaction-solution, successfully exploited repeatedly by typically deceptive rulers to consolidate power. He reintroduces the formula at the beginning of his insightful and heavily footnoted analyses of, for instance, “9/11 Enemy Islam,” “Enemy Senator Paul Wellstone,” “Enemy Russia,” “Enemy China,” “Enemy Iran,” and “Enemy the American People.” (Full disclosure: Barrett sent me a pdf file of the next-to-last version of the book, asking me for a blurb. After reading the book I obliged and then suggested to Craig McKee that I write this review. Barrett then asked me to provide an opinion on the Hagopian chapter. A colleague of his had recommended killing it. I found the colleague’s objections unfair and suggested Hagopian’s chapter might well lead off the book.)

The Hegelian formula, while a powerful template, is not a be-all and end-all. Especially it becomes shaky when outcomes are confused with “solutions.” Hagopian falls prey to this confusion.

Nevertheless the sweep and detail of the context for Orlando that he provides is like a “Worldview for Dummies” that can be applied to all the major false flag ops mounted by the Anglo-American-Israeli nexus starting with 9/11.

Worthy of special mention:

—The last two pages of Feroze Mithiborwala’s “Orlando: A False Flag Attack on Muhammad Ali’s Islam?” He writes: “The Orlando terror attack once again lays bare the imperial neo-conservative strategy of ‘controlled chaos,’ leading to a perpetual state of fear, confusions, visceral hatred and divisions, whereby the masses are more pliant to control under the unchallengeable slogan of ‘national security.’”

Mithiborwala is the only author who poses and answers the difficult but exceedingly important question: What to do? He answers it this way:

A slow-motion World War III is unfolding before our very eyes. Even as the world hurtles towards a precipice, more people than ever before are aware of the nefarious plots of the globalist cabal and the challenges that confront us. But how do we resist and expose this gargantuan monster?

The answer lies in reaching out to each other as human beings, across religions and cultures, across nations, sharing information and insights, speaking out with courage, asking questions, seeking answers. We must continue stating the truth in accordance with our individual conscience, in the “still small voice” that Mahatma Gandhi referred to as our best hope in times of great distress, holding fast to belief in our collective humanity and the common destiny that awaits us all.

—James Petras’s “Massacres: Where Have All the Islamists Gone?” for his homing in on the history and meaning of the “distinctly US phenomenon” of mass shootings.

— Christopher Black’s “Terrorism: A Matrix of Lies and Deceit” for his sharp focus on the absolute centrality of language.

—Rafik’s “Tell the Government the Gay Community is Nobody’s Psy-Op Pawn: The Petition I Didn’t Receive After the Orlando Attack” for his critique of “well-intentioned” organizations ostensibly on the left, including gay ones, for their fatal acceptance of the official Orlando narrative. “None of their [communications] reflect the false flag history,” he writes.

Best quotes include:

“I have finally understood that we live in a two-party tyranny that works for Wall Street, Israel, Saudi Arabia, the Vatican and Organized Crime, in that order.”—Robert David Steele

“Since 1945, more than a third of the membership of the United Nations—69 countries—have suffered some or all of the following at the hands of America’s modern fascism: they have been invaded, their governments overthrown, their popular movements suppressed, their elections subverted, their people bombed and their economies stripped of all protection, their societies subjected to a crippling siege known as ‘sanctions.”—John Pilger quoted by Hagopian.

”The best way to predict the future is to invent it.”—Theodore Hook.

The best phrases new to me are “Radical West” and “Westernism.” They appear in Dr. Javid Jamil’s chapter entitled “Mr. Trump, the Radical West Has Given the Muslim World 10 Orlandos Every Day for the Last 15 Years.” Gordon Duff’s characterization, in “Terrrorism Privatized,” of the technicians behind false flag ops as being “event planners” is tellingly appropriate.

The trade mark of Orlando False Flag is instant variety—the variety of worldviews, viewpoints, opinions and disparate facts between the covers. The very instantaneity of any instant book carries a price, however. By its nature such a book does not feature “sober second thought.” Reading it reminded me of an East Indian friend’s comment that “too much hurry” is right up there with “too much worry” and “too much curry.”

Inadvertently the book illustrates how careful we must be in the matter of acceptance of “facts” we’re presented with by mainstream media (as well as so-called “alternative” media). A number of the contributors accept various (and contradictory) details in mainstream media accounts of June 12th. Their acceptance is confirmed by the lack of modifiers such as “alleged,” “apparently,” and “stated,” although there are a few instances of “we are told.”

So paradoxically, in a book founded on questioning, there still isn’t enough questioning—in the form of self-interrogation by some of the authors as to whether “facts” they report really are facts. Accordingly, the implied promise of the title of Part 1, “What Really Happened at Orlando?” cannot be fully delivered.

But the book as a whole resoundingly delivers an answer to a somewhat different question: “Can We Trust to the Tiniest Degree Any Official or Media Accounts of what Happened at Orlando?” A chapter with that title would be the shortest chapter in publishing history. It would consist of “No!”

There’s an important lesson for all of us in this paradox over facts. We should constantly practice the approach recommended by British philosopher and mathematician Bertrand Russell who counseled “critical acceptance”—habitually practicing the trick of being genuinely open-minded while thinking critically. We may also chew gum if we wish.

Arguably Part 2, “Historical Context: Contesting the Narrative” doesn’t live up to the promise of its title either, in the sense that none of its chapters attempt to lay out the history of Islam and compare it to a history of Christianity or “Christian civilization,” as Samuel Huntington ostensibly did in his Clash of Civilizations tome. Granted this is a tall order.

Lawrence Davidson in “This Was Not About Islam: Getting it Wrong About the Orlando Massacre” does lay it out somewhat about the U.S. Christian right. And about associated double standards. Such as no one “[is expecting] the American Christian community to start taking responsibility for shooters coming from [its] ranks…” He continues: “After all, they account for most of these kinds of slaughters” and adds “What is truly bizarre is the attempt to conflate Mateen’s insanity with the entire religion of 1.6 billion mostly law-abiding Muslims.”

But this is not the same as saying “broadly ‘the West’ believes a, b and c, whereas broadly “Islam” believes e, f and g, and ‘These are the competing narratives we must deal with.’”

While variety is the spice of this book a surprisingly disappointing version of variety is Thierry Meyssan’s chapter entitled “ISIS and Homosexuality.” It’s cryptic and near indecipherable.

All this book’s shortcomings combined are, however, a small price to pay for a restless focus on false flag operations and the media’s crimes of informational complicity in covering up the growing body of blatant evidence that all of us are hostages. We’ve been trapped in a theatre that specializes in staging manipulations of the public mind.

James Tracy wrote in Global Research May 1st, 2014 that false flag operation is a rapidly spreading meme, especially in the Middle East “where journalists and the broader public routinely witness inexplicable terror attacks on civilian populations.”

The acceptance of “false flag” as a language tool, as a denoter of a concept and a history, reflects vital, even revolutionary, understandings by its users.

Tracy writes also that the phrase and the concept it encapsulates remains stillborn in “the West,” particularly the USA. He writes “…much like the taboo topic of ‘conspiracy theories,’ US news media broadly reject the subject of false flag terror as the stuff delusion or otherwise perceive it as being mainly restricted to fictional narratives.”

Orlando underscores the prices to be paid by blindly accepting official versions of “terror” events. The prices include more fear, fewer liberties, and the eventual loss of everything.

To again quote Robert David Steele: “The truth at any cost lowers all other costs.”

Barrie Zwicker is the author of Towers of Deception: The Media Cover-Up of 9/11 (New Society Publishers, 2006). He was the first journalist in the world to deeply question the official story of 9/11 on national television. A writer, TV producer and host, and political and environmental activist, Zwicker was Director of the International Citizens’ Inquiry Into 9/11, Phase 2, at The University of Toronto on 2004. He is a regular contributor to Truth and Shadows.

  1. “I have finally understood that we live in a two-party tyranny that works for Wall Street, Israel, Saudi Arabia, the Vatican and Organized Crime, in that order.”—Robert David Steele

    Just curious, how does the Vatican fit into that list? IMHO, for the last 50 years, the Vatican has abandoned and modified it’s policies and even Church doctrines (e.g., abortion, Israel, social policies), to suit the élites, not the other way ’round.

    And the remark by Bertrand Russell seems a bit ironic to those of us who have read Russell’s Science and Society where he lays out the use of psychological manipulation to teach “black is white.”

    1. Read Michael Hoffman’s work on usury at his site.
      Read “The Plot Against the Church” by Maurice Pinay (a pseudonym) which is available online as a pdf at romancatholicism org and can be downloaded.

      1. The Solzhenitsyn book was banned by the communists in Russia, banned now in the United States.

        However now in Putin’s Russia it is mandatory reading for students, that is why he is hated among other reasons. A very old Alexander Solzhenitsyn was recently welcomed into the office of a very emotional Putin.

        That book is hard to find. I mirrored part of it from The Millenium Report and have linked a pdf to the book.

  2. Barrett: anyone associated with Veterans Today is suspect.
    Anyone who thinks Steele “grew out of” the CIA is either mentally deficient (which is highly doubtful in this case) or is propagating the idea that people who work in intelligence services can be “ex” intelligence services.
    And the capstone (ha ha) is quoting Ghandi who was British intelligence. Yeah, Ghandi —can’t we all hold hands and get along–lay down-don’t worry about it-it’s all in your head-Ghandi.
    Another article with lots of obvious truth and lots of misdirection.

    1. Barrett metamorphosed into Islam and his wife is Moroccan. No big deal.

      It’s interesting to see how the various writers are treated by readers. Some feel Fetzer is bad, bad news, etc etc. You can hear anything or everything about these luminaries but don’t be too confident you are reading the truth. It’s necessary to read and study these authors over a period of time before you can be accurate in your analyses of them.
      Lots at stake so the starting pitchers are being used more and more these days. MHB should run some polls on our personal evaluations of various internet personalties/authors from time to time. Every month or so we should see a poll that addresses certain writers and what they are saying and doing and how we feel about them. Trolls are like the tide, they rise, they fall. They make the scene, they disappear. This is not by mere chance.

      I think Fetzer is a legit candidate for the Nobel peace prize, quite frankly. Who’s done more than Jim for the cause????

    2. Most Hindus today will tell you that Ghandi was a British agent with a homosexual handler from South Africa. The idea was for British troops to leave India without fighting their way, just hand out flowers and sing kumbaya on the way out while leaving those recruited as masons behind with substantial amounts of cash and substantial business contracts.

      Some 80 million Hindus died while partitioning India and Pakistan by the way. Over the centuries over 1000 Hindu temples have been destroyed by Muslims. Many were works of antiquity. When I hear the praise for Ghandi, I realize I am dealing with someone who has no idea what they are talking about.

      When one speaks of working for company, it is best to realize their paychecks come from the IMF and the UN. According to the law books and that is what governments and courts go by, no popular misconception, the US has no treasury and is in fact a bankrupt corporation.

      Regardless of what one might think, the law books indicate the City of London owns the American colonies and always has. Likewise Britain is owned by the Vatican-IRS Is Not A Gov Agency-US Did Not Declare Independence From king George-SSA #s Issued Through IMF-There Are No US Employees As There Is No United States. The IMF is an Agency of the UN. (Blacks Law Dictionary 6th Ed. Pg. 816) The U.S. Treasury is now the IMF. (Presidential Documents Volume 29-No.4 pg. 113, 22 U.S.C. 285-288) The most powerful court in America is not the United States Supreme Court but, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. (42 Pa.C.S.A. 502) Britain is owned by the Vatican. (Treaty of 1213) The Pope can abolish any law in the United States. (Elements of Ecclesiastical Law Vol.1 A 1040 form is for tribute paid to Britain. (IRS Publication 620953-54)

      1. Well Mick
        this may be the lie that is printed on some document but we are not slaves (if people wake up),
        all that is necessary is for people to awake and nullify these laws and take back what has been stolen from us, and put a lot of these people in prisons,
        sounds like a tall order, it is called a Revolution, it must happen one way or the other

  3. Kevin Barret and John Hall have a program called”No Lies Radio”.
    I used to be a listener but I felt that they were in fact spreading lies & mistruths through this medium so I turned it off.
    My dislike for the opinions expressed began with their mischaracterization concerning Donald Trumps plan to fully vet Muslims coming across open borders in the US.
    James Fetzer was ostracized by KB for quite some time for defending this position, which I do not feel is racist but just good policy, no different then the policies in place in most countries that care about their citizens.
    Instead the take away from KB is that Donald Trump and all who would support that vetting policy are racist islamaphobs.That simply not the case.
    Second point I’d like to make is that KB and JH have perpetuated a complete falsehood and a very sleazy one that Donald Trump was part of the ” Lolita Express” attending underaged sex parties with B. Clinton. This was an orchestrated smear campaign and had been completely debunked and disproven shortly after the allegations appeared,yet KB went live with it on his show which makes him appear very uniformed and /or vindictive in the extreme. If you are advertising yourself as arbiters of truth you’re a lost cause.

    1. Barrett and “Tony” Hall…
      Your comments express some of my thoughts over the last 2 years or so. Once my habit for tuning in VT was established, I first enjoyed the hard hitting format, but over this period, I also became aware of one aspect that troubles me to this day. Why would the US government and its 16 intelligence agencies utilizing government personnel allow, if that’s the word, this adjunct agency called VT that appears to have some weight and impact that is poorly defined. It’s like, “poof!”, one day VT was here and reporting on some dicey, touchy subjects that begged the question, “how did they get this information when the plethora of highly funded agencies could not”? I just don’t see how this “agency” is allowed to exist. Oh, the connection with some military-industrial company that Duff is allegedly CEO of is still another thought provoking and nettlesome nabob that still makes me shake my head in disarray. I don’t know who they are and I do know Barrett was beknighted as an “editor” at VT and yet he has expressed his dire concerns about them and this is what throws me. Is KB some sort of operative? He’s faced some nasty roadblocks in his academic career, are those just some way to throw us off the trail when looking for his curriculum vitae in the intelligence game? As a website gains readership and starts to become a target for trolls or other agencies, are they led by operatives that have tried to throw us off their trails by assuming a faux career and woeful things happening to them almost constantly? 911 and other false flags are heavily defended by pretty professional types who are nothing if not highly skilled at understanding the American. A politician like Hitlery is aware that those that adore her are coincidentally one issue voters who cannot see the big picture regarding her lifelong corruption.
      At no time in the previous discourse am I intending to slam or denigrate Kevin Barrett. We live in precarious times and the walls have ears. There’s lots of strange stuff happening in this nation and world, all part of the NWO takeover and its corollary actions. We may lead the world in stupidity, but we are not alone. This is a well orchestrated plot directed against world freedom and it has to be resisted come hell or high water.

      1. At one time I used to read VT. I am still at a loss for words as to how Kevin Barrett felt the Muslim Brotherhood should have taken over Egypt instead of Sisi. At the time Morsi was talking about forming up the Egyptian army and doing battle against Assad in Syria. How is this even rational?

        However one comes to Islam, it just seems from that point on, their decisions and world view enters the land of Oz.

      2. There is no such thing as large private intelligence agencies,
        they wouldn’t be allowed to operate independently-that should tell you who Duff works for
        which leads us to writers like Dr. Fetzner and others, who come from VT-this is a question mark(?)

        1. Jim Fetzer has answered many questions frankly and openly about his philosophy of reporting and analyzing. Mere denigration about his being on VT won’t cut it, either. Jim feels a strong need to get out the word, he’s a tireless worker and his heart is in the right place. He also realizes that once you stick your head out in the world, you are a target. Despite that, he does absolutely all he can do to advance knowledge and understanding. Implying he works for some nefarious agency is nothing but shallow purple journalism. Prove it. Draw the connections between Fetzer and whatever agency you think he skulks for. Is Preston James an operative? How so? Give us your rationale. Mere shallow innuendo won’t cut it on this website with these sharp people attacking from all angles, either.
          Fetzer is the FIRST person to admit it when he’s been proven incorrect or wrong. The FIRST….this means nothing?
          We’ve all got responsibilities to spread the truth as far and wide as possible, but that comes with a responsibility to analyze with due diligence and not just smirks and hunches that are too often baseless without careful scrutiny. If there’s one thing about Fetzer that stands out among his other sterling attributes it’s his virtual tirelessness. The man is the personification of the Everready battery, he goes and goes and goes…..

        2. Its not a personal attack on Dr. Fetzner who I respect greatly, however one cannot in all honesty avoid this question (?) to anyone coming from a known source of propaganda like VT,
          it may be answered to your satisfaction but every reader has to assess this themselves

      3. Gil, I agree that fighting our way to freedom again requires dedication to truth as our first means. Which reminds me that an important truth overlooked by many (at our peril) is that heavy airplane parts which fall from the sky cannot land lightly upon the sands of Sinai nor the farmland of the Donbass. When such parts fail to make gouges, gullies and serious dents in the ground we know we are looking at a hoax. US & UK were quick to support the Sinai hoax by chiming in that their intell confirmed that the terrorists were responsible for putting a bomb aboard– even tho the evident purpose of the hoax was to motivate the Russian people to accept an escalation in Syria. This isn’t the only indication of collusion between Russia and the West in Syria.

        Clearly both parties also colluded in the Donbass crash which resulted in sanctions against Russia’s economy.

        I think the take-home from this is that there are two paths to the NWO. We are being shown the evil of the West, especially the US, as a way to shag us down the other path, labelled “multi-polarity”– in reality the long-planned regional administration of the NWO.

  4. “I have finally understood that we live in a two-party tyranny that works for Wall Street, Israel, Saudi Arabia, the Vatican and Organized Crime, in that order.”—Robert David Steele

    I don’t get the inclusion of the Vatican here. Since the “Vatican II” conference, the so-called “Post-Conciliar” Church has placed itself at the service of the UN (Paul VI made this clear in his speech to that body in 1965). Wikilieaks just recently released evidence that Pope Francis is getting paid by Soros. The Vatican is working for the establishment, not vice versa.

    And the quote by Russell should be taken with a lump of salt, as much of what he said and wrote should be. In his book Science and Society, Russell made the case that psychology would soon enable the government to teach that “black is white”. While making pretensions that we must preserve democracy, Russell’s message is that the Brave New World of 24/7 psyops would be here sooner than later.

  5. I think this Orlando “b” production was a response to the planet-wide goodwill for Islam and a Black Champion generated by Ali’s death and funeral. I think the black-op funding has these events lined up and ready to go. The lousy script, the lousy acting, the too obvious preposterous events, for e.g.: All those bodies that had died from bleed-out lying in the Florida heat for 24 hrs. before the FBI could bag them up? Geezus, think of the flies! Flies to be sure, but the stink was American TV at it’s worst. I think it stunk so bad they had to follow-up with the Dallas Cop killing and a drunk president at the funeral. We’ve become a comic book sooo bad, it would not sell to a 3rd grader.

  6. Well-done! Sounds like another great volume of research! The “man bites dog” mention was funny in context…especially because that’s the English title for a Belgian French-language film called C’est arrivé près de chez vous.

    Also, I was struck by the mention of Bertrand Russell. Since the Russell Tribunal of 1967 (hosted by Sartre), there have been a number of other such tribunals (including the multiple meetings of the RToP [Russell Tribunal on Palestine]).

    Finally, I do believe Mr. Meyssan is himself homosexual. Perhaps this is a factor in the crypticism mentioned? I’m not sure.

    In general, I would thank Dr: Barrett and all the researchers who have given voice to an opposition. Thank you for your continued hard work and dedication!


  7. “This Was Not About Islam: Getting it Wrong About the Orlando Massacre” does lay it out somewhat about the U.S. Christian right. And about associated double standards. Such as no one “[is expecting] the American Christian community to start taking responsibility for shooters coming from [its] ranks…” He continues: “After all, they account for most of these kinds of slaughters” and adds “What is truly bizarre is the attempt to conflate Mateen’s insanity with the entire religion of 1.6 billion mostly law-abiding Muslims.

    Moving backwards, the MSM bends over backwards constantly to assure the world that Islam is a “peace loving religion” and that it is only a handful of radicals that carry out mass killings.

    So please, cut me a break with the violins for Islam.

    Oh, and a news flash. There never has been, there are not, and never will be a moderate Muslim. Moderate Muslims are like “Christians” who disregard clear, persistent Scripture which teaches homosexuality is an abomination to the Lord. In other words, they are not genuine believers. They are Christians in name only (Mt. 7:21-23).

    Moderate Muslims are not genuine Muslims. They are political Muslims for the sake of political benefit, in the same way that William Barber, a “Christian pastor” who spoke at the DNC in Philly, is a political Christian for the sake of political ($$$$) gain.

    What in the name of Caesars ghost is Lawrence Davidson talking about when he claims “the American Christian community accounts for most of these slaughters?” Please, Larry, don’t confuse me, a biblical Christian, with any other group that claims Christianity, placard style. If you want to indict America as the chief sponsor of false flag terror, I would agree with you, but if you are still propping up the ludicrous notion that “America is a christian nation” you need to open your eyes to the moral cesspool this nation is.

    Double standards? Who is the ISIS of Christianity today? Remember, we are talking in contemporary terms. I am well aware of the past, when white supremacists hailed the name of Christ within their vile spew.

    Wake me up the next time an alleged act of terror is ascribe to Christianity.

    Although I am well aware that ISIS is as much about Islam as abortion clinic bombings are about Christianity, one has to wonder why Islam was chosen to be identified with ISIS. Could it be that fundamental Islam is devoid of grace and mercy for infidels?

    From this authors overview it appears this book meanders down too many superfluous roads, rather that exercising tact that to me, ought to be painfully obvious in a culture constantly birthing false flags; record and report the blatant absurdities within the official narratives, and the subsequent derelict coverage by the MSM.

    Having said all this, I still plan on purchasing the book. I suppose it’s a baby and bathwater issue.

  8. “Barrie Zwicker was the first journalist in the world to deeply question the official story of 9/11 on national television.”
    Mr. Zwicker went on national TV and presented almost entirely inaccurate and distorted evidence about the events of 9/11. He has in the 15 years since made almost no effort at all to correct those inaccuracies and distortions of evidence he presented to people.

    1. It would be helpful to explain with specific examples how the evidence Z wicker presented was “inaccurate and distorted.” Who are you? The curator of New York’s 9/11 Memorial Museum? That’s a colossal assemblage of true inaccuracy and distortion.

  9. Quote Barrie Zwicker:
    “For four months I’ve been waiting in vain for the North American media to pursue questions about the startling events of September 11th. Here’s what I want to know:
    The multiple hijackings are unprecedented. The first occurs at 7:45 in the morning. It’s a full hour before the first plane hits the World Trade Center. But it’s an hour and 20 minutes — and after the second plane hits – that the President allegedly becomes informed.”
    AA11 had not even taken off at 7.45 am. The hijacking happened at about 8.13 am and no one on the ground knew it was a hijacking , just that a pilot had not responded immediately to an instruction by one ATC controller. When they heard a suspicious message from an unidentified source they thought it might be connected. It was only after the cabin crew contacted the airline and they contacted ATC that they knew it was a hijacking. Because the transponder had been turned off the controllers did not know it’s altitude and then to concentrate on diverting any plane that crossed it’s path. After 8.30 the supervisor decided to ask for military assistance and instead of doing what he was supposed to do and passing that request all the way up the chain of FAA command , then across to the military and from there all the way down the military chain of command, which would have taken a lot more time, he went straight to Otis Tracon and asked them directly. They contacted the Otis tower who immediately told the two pilots to get suited up and get to their planes. They then requested permission to scramble and when that permission came back they got in the air.
    The military responded immediately to the request for assistance. They had less that 15 minutes from hearing about the hijacking to the plane crashing.

    Quote Barrie Zwicker
    But it’s an hour and 20 minutes — and after the second plane hits – that the President allegedly becomes informed. Think about that.
    Then, he gives no orders. Why? He continues to listen to a student talk about her pet goat. Why?

    The President was informed about the first plane hitting the WTC like everyone else at about 8.50 am and the reports were that it was a small plane and probably an accident. There was no information that the plane that had been hijacked was the plane that hit the WTC, that was only gradually being realised by ATC controllers. The President was informed about the second crash a few minutes after it happened. He wasn’t told it was a large airliner. This wasn’t an hour and 20 minutes after anything. It was less that 20 minutes after an apparent accidental crash of a small plane into the WTC.

    Quote Barrie Zwicker :
    “It’s another 25 minutes until he makes a statement, even as flight 77 is making a bee-line for Washington, DC.”

    AA77 was heading towards Washington unknown to anyone. Controllers were contacting search and rescue thinking it had crashed heading west. It was only when an unidentified target was picked up by controllers about 20 miles from Washington and after they had asked a military transport to identify it that they heard it was a 757, only a few minutes before it hit the Pentagon.

    Quote Barrie Zwicker
    “In the almost two hours of the total drama not a single U.S. Air Force interceptor turns a wheel until it’s too late. Why? Was it total incompetence on the part of aircrews trained and equipped to scramble in minutes? ”

    In almost two hours not a single interceptor turned a wheel..? is that what he is trying to make people think? He doesn’t mention anything about any of the interceptors from Otis or from Langley that did ‘turn a wheel’ when they were requested. The fact that they were informed about the planes when it was too late for them to be able to do anything about them might be the reason they were too late. The people who hijacked the planes and crashed them didn’t get much of a mention there.
    How many minutes is ‘minutes’. What does intercept mean?
    How long does it take 1: for ATC to decide they require assistance 2: contact the military and give them the details 3: for the military to assess the situation and follow protocol and find out if there are any non-military aircraft that can give assistance instead 4: to get in the air 2: to intercept a plane? How many minutes?

    Quote Barrie Zwicker
    “A common explanation as to why no U.S. military interceptors took to the skies on September 11th until it was too late, is that it was “simple incompetence.”
    Well, let me deal with the “incompetence theory” by first taking you back to October 26th, 1999. That is the day the chartered Learjet carrying golfer Payne Stewart crashes, killing all on board. This from the official National Transportation Safety Board crash report:
    9:19 a.m.: the flight departs
    9:24: The Learjet’s pilot responds to an instruction from air traffic control
    9:33: The controller radios another instruction. No response from the pilot. For 4 1⁄2 minutes the controller tries to establish contact.
    9:38: Having failed, the controller calls in the military. Note that he did not seek, nor did he require, the approval of the President of the United States, or indeed anyone. It’s standard procedure, followed routinely, to call in the Air Force when radio contact with a commercial passenger jet is lost, or the plane departs from its flight path, or anything along those lines occurs.
    9:54 – 16 minutes later — the F-16 reaches the Learjet at 46,000 feet and conducts a visual inspection.
    Total elapsed time: 21 minutes.


    The NTSB report is shown on screen in Mr. Zwicker’s video. The plane did not respond at 9.33 EDT ,Eastern daylight time. It was intercepted at 9.54 CDT , Central daylight time. Total elapsed time 1 hour and 21 minutes.
    It is not standard procedure to call in the Air force , followed routinely, when radio contact is lost or a plane goes off course. It is a decision made by ATC if they think it will be of assistance. The first thing the military are supposed to do is find out if non-military planes can assist instead. The role of interceptors if they were asked to assist in a hijack situation is to simply follow the plane from a distance and report anything unusual to ATC. In a hijacking this would be a largely superfluous role since they would be in contact with the pilots and would have a transponder code to follow.
