What You Can't Say on Geraldo

Geraldo: Has he rescinded the digitis impudicus he once flashed at the "nutjobs" who support 9/11 truth?

At first glance, Geraldo's 9/11 show with Bob McIlvaine and Tony Szamboti was mind-boggling. Never before has mainstream network TV put such a favorable spin on 9/11 truth.

Even at second glance it's still pretty mind-boggling. Congratulations to everyone involved - Bob and Tony (who performed brilliantly), the NYCcan and BuildingWhat folks, and behind them the whole truth movement. (I will be welcoming Tony Szamboti to Truth Jihad Radio next Saturday, Nov. 20th, 5 to 7 pm Central, live on AmericanFreedomRadio.com.)

After the celebrations and congratulations are over, it's time to ask: Why are Geraldo and Fox doing this now? After all, the destruction of WTC-7 was an obvious controlled demolition from day one. Now, almost ten years later, Geraldo finally gets it. What's up with that?

Gordon Duff of Veterans Today - who will join me on the radio next Tuesday, November 23rd - writes:

"This week,  Geraldo Rivera was foiled in his attempt to “contain” the 9/11 movement,  something exploding around the world...Rivera tried,  during the show,  to “sucker” the parent of a Building 7 murder victim into a 2 minute discussion of 9/11 as an “inside job” knowing quite well he would be able to get a quick attack in.  Rivera was outwitted as the video shows,  cut off at the legs.  Why would Rivera do this?"

Duff thinks that Rivera, an Israeli citizen, and Fox, a de facto Israeli network, are "trying to 'spin' the story,  control it,  make murder a joke."

How could Rivera/Fox have been attempting to spin/control 9/11 truth? Duff speculates that Rivera is disguising the 9/11 false-flag mass murders - a crime whose perpetrators and main motive are fairly well-known - as a "mystery."

Following Duff, I think Rivera/Fox is trying to impose certain limits of permissible discourse on 9/11 activists: Ask questions, but don't make strong statements about who did it and why. Sign a petition if you're an engineer or an architect, otherwise keep your mouth shut because what do you know. Whatever you do, don't demonstrate noisily in the streets like those "nut jobs" in the clip he showed. Anybody who makes too much noise, or who takes too strong action, will be attacked as a "nut job" by Fox. But if you follow all of Fox's rules, you may get a few minutes of approval from Fox/Rivera! Then you can sit back and feel good about yourself being so calm and professional and responsible! What a wonderful feeling, after all these years of being attacked and vilified by Fox and the sheeple who watch it! It will feel so good that if any other 9/11 activists dare to make 9/11 truth look bad by being loud, rebellious, unruly, overly confident or assertive about who did it and why, or (G-d forbid) "anti-Semitic" (by bringing up the case against Israel and Zionists)...well, we'll just have to silence them and censor them and shout them down and ban them from websites and start flame wars and lynch mobs to keep them in line! (Now THAT is beneficial cognitive diversity.)

The polite approach to 9/11 truth has its place. But carried too far, it serves the interests of the perpetrators. The reason is that "9/11" is a meme, and the default status for that meme is "radical Arab Muslim attack on America."

The thing about memes is that the more you mention a given meme - even if you're questioning or opposing it - the more you unwittingly reinforce it. So every 9/11 activist who helps keep the 9/11 meme alive by talking and writing and posting and demonstrating about 9/11 may be (among other things) unwittingly helping reinforce the "Muslims did it" meme in service to the perpetrators. This is especially true when the emphasis is on victims and family members, first responders, and anything else that taps into the prefabricated patriotic myth constructed for the event ahead of time and wheeled out by the psy ops pros on the morning of the 11th. Note that the Let It Happen On Purpose (LIHOP) paradigm, which imagines top US officials looking the other way while evil Arab Muslim terrorists hijacked and crashed planes, tends to reinforce the "Muslims did it" meme far more than it undermines it.  Keeping all of this in mind, it is easy to see why certain people and/or anonymous cyber-entities at 911blogger have been suspected of "working for the other side."

So Rivero/Fox (and presumably the psy-ops pros behind them) don't really mind if we politely question 9/11, harp on its being a mystery, critique the official reports, invoke family members and first responders, and so on. What they don't want us to do is assertively create and spread alternative memes that could crowd out the original "Arab-Muslim terrorist attack" meme from the public mind. Such memes include but are not limited to: False-flag attack, inside job, controlled demolition, Zionist operation, Mossad operation, remote-control planes, accused hijackers are innocent, war on Islam for Israel, Zionist coup d'etat, big lie, Reichstag fire, Zionist attack on America, trigger for criminal wars of aggression, and so on.

Okay, you say, we get your point about memes - but why all this harping on Israel and Zionists? 

First, because it's true. Nobody else had such an overwhelming, existential motive to pull off something as huge and as risky as 9/11. As Chomsky correctly said, the Bush Administration would have been crazy to do it. But the Israelis, who inhabit an illegitimate state doomed by history, had nothing to lose and everything to gain. The "who gains" question alone argues Israel did 9/11. And this interpretation is supported by extensive evidence - evidence that the overly-polite wing of the truth movement, the thought police who guard and monitor it, and the Israeli Fox hosts who encourage it, don't want us to talk about.

At the end of the day, the (true) "Zionists did it" meme can and will eventually crowd out the (false) "Muslims did it" meme. Simply asking questions and invoking mysteries won't.

  1. You are raising very good points... but the cui bono question kills all the memes and this is the first question to ask before you start any genuine investigation...

    I agree with the memes and some of the approach, but cognitiv infiltration is designed to undermine the hard core 911 truther from the family victims and fire fighters, architects, pilots etc by using the 'antisemitic rethoric', that's why Geraldo did try to contain like normaly the limits of the debate, who did it do not mention it because it is antisemitic to say so etc... ... The main issue here is that you have to reproduice the same scheme of infiltration all over the western world and now even in the muslim world as the israel did it won the battle, which was not the case before 2005 for exemple. Same for Asia population and south american peoples... it is very difficult to maintain within limits this movement, and the financial staged crisis which started officialy in 2008 saw now the invovlement of the US/Western middle class in the process, people working for the elites asking and doubting the administration story, with the strategy of long term colonization of Iraq and Afghanistan, doubting about the long strategic decission made by the US admin and EU, it is understandable.

    It looks that the US zio-elite is ready to hear about this but they are trying to contain the next step, bring to justice the real perpetrators... cognitive infiltration is sapplied to alleviate the pain and to try to calm down people ... Fox and zio-medias lost huge credibility since 2001... tide turned on the opposite side... Obama strategy to divide the hard core and maintain walls between of a huge transnational movement will give him the illusion that the movement is contained, unfortunately US is loosing far more abroad than inside, as they are seen as the perpetrators... Like Ferrari yestersay in Abu Dhabi they are covering the wrong horse ahead of the peloton if you know what I mean, you can have one of the best racing car you can win races if your strategy is not clear, this will play in our favour before 2012 !

  2. Former BBC Mideast correspondent Alan Hart: "Today, and as I indicated in my recent article from you quoted, Zionism and Peace Are Incompatible, I am beginning to think that the awesome influence of the Zionist lobby may not be the complete explanation of the lack of political will. Because it is obviously not in America’s own best interests to go on supporting Israel right or wrong and making enemies of 1.4 billion Muslims by so doing, the question I am asking myself is this: Could it be that all American presidents are frightened of confronting Zionism because they know there is nothing nuclear-armed Israeli leaders would not do if they were seriously pressed to make peace on terms which they believed in their own deluded minds would put Israel's security at risk?

    "That question was provoked by my recall of a statement made to me in a BBC Panorama interview by Golda Meir when she was prime minister. At a point I interrupted her to say: 'I just want to be sure that I understand what you’re saying… You are saying that in a doomsday situation Israel would be prepared to take the region and the world down with it?' Without the shortest of pauses for reflection, and in the gravel voice that could charm or intimidate American presidents according to need, she replied: 'Yes! That’s exactly what I am saying.'”

  3. Love your work Kevin, and until recently I loved Duffs work as well, but please see the comments here and keep in mind that Duff is not on the up and up:

    http://kennysideshow.blogspot.com/2010/11/best-laid-schemes-o-mice-men-gang-aft.html

    Maybe you can ask Duff why he saw fit to censor user "C" from his Sibel Edmonds story and if it has anything to do with protecting Sibel herself from similar questions as mine. I can honestly think of no other good reason(not that that is a good reason either) why he censored me. Considering how good many of his articles are this is troublesome.

  5. Is this a Freudian slip?

    "So Rivero/Fox (and presumably the psy-ops pros behind them) don't really mind if we politely question 9/11"

  6. Sorry, I just meant to point out that you have "Rivero" instead if "Rivera" in that instance.

    Thanks for the insightful article...

  7. The belief that Israel had nothing to lose from 9/11 is totally wacked. If the plot had been discovered it could destroy Israel. And anything involving known chuckleheads like Rummy and Cheney had a great risk of discovery.

  8. Something to lose in the very short term, but little to lose in the medium and long-terms. In 2001, the Israeli economic and demographic crises foretold a fairly quick end to the apartheid "Jewish state" - especially if that part of the US power elite that "just doesn't care" about Israel (as Zelikow said about the Europeans) prevailed. The 9/11 Zionist coup rescued the Israeli economy, destroyed its only formidable Arab enemy (Iraq), and committed US power to defending Zionism - against the interests of the US - indefinitely. It raised Israel's survival prospects from near zero to a little higher than that.

    Keep in mind that Israel's prospects for long-term survival as an apartheid "Jewish state" are dismal at best...about the same prospects French Algeria faced in 1958 or apartheid South Africa faced in 1985.

  9. I may be giving waaay to much credit to TPTB in my conspiratorial spin below, but bear with me:

    Ain't it odd how many loose ends there are in the 911-job. The reporting of wtc7 falling 20 minutes in advance? The miraculously found passports in the wtc-debris?

    The thought has occured to me, more than once, that maybe it was never meant to be to kept secret for ever. The cover-up was so sloppy imo, that one is tempted to believe it's by design! Sometimes I feel that it's all scripted...Is this perhaps the screenplay written for the Revelations of John? Meant to give the world the motivation for WW3?

    As I said in the beginning; it's probably my conspiratorial head spinning a little to fast, but I do find it odd..

    Well...anyhow; just my 2cents...
    Gods Peace and blessings to y'all good folks out there.

  10. "I think Rivera/Fox is trying to impose certain limits of permissible discourse on 9/11 activists."

    I suspect, it's a new strategy by the mainstream or corporate controlled media. They're stlll in the driver's seat and setting the terms and limits of discourse is close to the truth, imho.

    They're probably floating trial balloons to see what can be done in the divide and conquer mode? It's a reverse field but don't count on a retreat, by any means!

    I must add as a final comment. I'm surprised to see it on the air!

  11. I've kinda lost my faith in dialogue with Ultra Zionists and radical Christians, after some few facebook battles, I'm afraid of admitting that clash of civilizations maybe inevitable :(

  12. What about those Jews huh? They be the cause of dis problem. Like Prof Griff said: Kill the Jews, wipe the blues.

    They a disease, so my nigga please.

  13. Hey "Hey Kevin" - are you a bigot, or a Zionist posing as a bigot? Since about 90% of the rabid anti-Jewish bigotry out there is produced by Zionists themselves, hoping to terrorize their fellow Jews and everybody else into falling into line, I'll assume the latter.
