Who's worse, the Saudis or the freemasons?



My latest Press TV interview:

Saudi monarchy betraying the Muslim world: Kevin Barrett

"It’s just beyond hypocrisy for the Western so-called proponents of democracy to be constantly propping up this outrageously corrupt, vicious, brutal, undemocratic regime in Riyadh.

"I hope that the people of Arabia would one of these days wake up and demand change. Once the Arab Spring finally reaches the Saudi Arabia, I think that’s when the Arab Spring will have actually arrived."  (Watch video and read transcript)

To Stop Mass Killings, Limit the First Amendment, Not the Second!

Time to leave the corporate media twisting slowly in the breeze?
"Any way you slice it, the gun nuts are right about one thing: Banning and regulating weaponry is not going to stop crazy, evil people from committing massacres. Anybody who wants to can easily massacre at least a couple of dozen people, maybe more, without using any 'weapons' at all.

"Regulating and restricting privately-held firearms – which the Second Amendment would seem to prohibit – cannot possibly stop massacres. But regulating and restricting free speech – i.e. violating the First Amendment – probably could.

"Here’s how: Simply pass a law prohibiting any professional media outlet from covering any massacre."

And blessings of the Holy Prophet Jesus to you, too!

Congressman Mark Siljander explains why educated Muslims and Christians share    a virtually identical faith...and ought to unite against the values of Anti-Christ.

"Merry Christmas!"

"And a Merry Christmas to you, too!"

That, of course, is the traditional Christmas greeting and response.

But somewhere along the line, "Merry Christmas" became...shall we say...politically incorrect. It was deemed offensive to the atheist extremists who want to remove religion from public life; and to Jews, who generally take a dim view of Jesus. (The Talmud has Jesus being boiled eternally in excrement.)

Since atheists and Jews, though tiny minorities, are so wildly over-represented in positions of power, privilege, and influence, America's Christian majority has been intimidated into feeling ashamed of their own prophet (excuse me, "Lord and Savior"). So they apologetically mutter "happy holidays." How freaking pathetic.

Many Christians, brainwashed by the Jews and atheists, imagine that other religious folk, such as Muslims, would likewise be offended by the "Merry Christmas" greeting. My ex-sister-in-law, a pious Lutheran, once invited us over to Christmas dinner by saying "I know you Muslims hate Jesus, but..."

Obviously she was confusing Muslims with Jews.

As an American Muslim, I find this misunderstanding really annoying...almost as annoying as the parallel misunderstanding about whether it was Muslims or atheist Jews who blew up the World Trade Center. But I digress...

Muslims, like Christians, love and revere the Holy Prophet Jesus, peace and blessings upon him. Educated Muslims and Christians share an almost identical view of the Holy Prophet Jesus, "ruh al-quds" (the Holy Spirit) conceived miraculously by the Virgin Mary and sent to earth with a beautiful divine message. (The best source on this is Congressman Mark Siljander, who was crucified by the 9/11 perps for getting in the way of their efforts to stir up a holy war between Christians and Muslims.)

My own non-Muslim family members are stubbornly clueless about all of this. They imagine that we Muslims would be offended by a Jesus-centered Christmas. They think we Muslims should embrace a totally non-denominational, religion-free Christmas dedicated purely to feasting, materialism, and greed.

They are, of course, completely out of their minds.

Here is my Muslim take on Christmas:

If the Christians are crazy enough to commemorate the birth of their holy prophet by ascribing a fictitious birthday and pegging it to the date of an ancient pagan festival celebrating the return of the sun after the winter solstice, that's okay with me.

But for God's sake, don't desecrate the celebration by making it about anything other than Jesus!!!

And for the love of Jesus Christ, do NOT spend that day, and the season around it, celebrating the values of the anti-Christ: greed, materialism, phoniness, gluttony, superficiality, egocentricity, mendacity, tribalism, nationalism, alcoholism, commercialism...you know the drill.

When someone says "happy holidays" I have to assume they're unconsciously celebrating these values, the values of the anti-Christ, that dominate today's version of Christmas.

And even when they say "Merry Christmas" I can't help but wonder.

So just to clarify things, I have devised a stock response to people who say "Merry Christmas" or "happy holidays."

Here is my response:

"And blessings of the Holy Prophet Jesus to you, too!"

Catapult the counter-narrative!


Just minutes after an apparent false-flag is the best time to spread the word!

George W. Bush said his job was to "catapult the propaganda."

My job is to catapult the counter-narrative.

The basic building blocks of human thought, and human society, are narratives - stories with emotional associations. In short, storytellers rule the world.

Karl Rove knows that. He snickers at the childish delusions of the "reality-based community," and brags:

"We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors…and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."

Yesterday, "history's actors" sent a mind-controlled killer into an elementary school. This despicable act, like virtually all other large-scale terror operations, was designed to "catapult the propaganda." The narrative: "Lone nut commits random act of terror!" The message: "Be afraid! Obey authority! Feel helpless! Feel despair! Lose faith! Take a dim view of human nature! Empower reactionary, authoritarian forces! Give up liberty for security!"

I am not content to just "study what they do." So I'm not going to wait and try to sort out whether this might actually be a freak lone nut attack, rather than the usual false-flag stuff.

I am at war with them. I'm going to act pre-emptively.

I'm going to catapult the counter-narrative.

That's why, within an hour of the news of the Newtown School massacre, I posted my contribution towards putting the event in historical context:

 Who really killed the Connecticut children? 

I did the same thing within a few hours of the news of the alleged assassination of Bin Laden:

"Death of Bin Laden": A Spectral Human Sacrifice 

Today, with millions or even billions of people reacting to breaking news in real time, whoever gets their version of the story out there first is going to prevail in shaping popular opinion.

The bad guys know that. That's why they had "Harley Guy" ready to read the official 9/11 script just minutes after the demolitions. And that's why they were in such a hurry to feed the BBC a script purporting to explain the "collapse" of World Trade Center Building 7 - a script that was accidentally read on camera twenty minutes BEFORE the actual demolition!

BBC Reports Collapse of WTC Building 7 Early-- TWICE 

Today, a whole army of info-warriors is ready to "catapult the counter-narrative" in the event of a major false flag event (and we must assume that any major "terror" event is false-flag).

That means that if the bad guys want to try anything as big as 9/11 or bigger, they're going to have to take down the internet. Hence the likelihood of a "cyber-9/11" in which "radical terrorists" or "Iran" or "dangerous anarchist hackers" will be falsely blamed for taking down the internet.

We need to be prepared.

What are YOU going to do when the cyber-9/11 comes?

I know what I'm going to do! I'm going to go "freeway blogging" with INSIDE JOB signs.

If you don't have these signs, you just aren't ready for what's coming.

I still have a couple of rolls worth of INSIDE JOB signs.  (More than ten rolls -  thousands of signs - have already been distributed.)

If you'd like one, go to TruthJihad.com and paypal ten bucks using the button at the top of page.

Or paypal twenty bucks for three signs attached together - a very visible statement indeed!

As the Boy Scouts always say: BE PREPARED!

Just having one of these easy-to-store signs in your closet helps deter the bad guys!

Just what the world needs - another social network!

 
Have you heard about the new social network - like Facebook, only with very short messages (for the people with REALLY short attention spans)?

It's called Farter.

People send out very brief messages called "farts."

The recipients "sniff" the "farts." So each message racks up a certain number of "sniffs."

Instead of just "liking" or ignoring a "fart," the "sniffer" rates it as "sweet," "odorless," ""mild,"  "pungent," "stinky,"  "grab a gas mask," or "run for your lives." Adjustable fart-filters allow users to filter out farts that exceed a designated level of odoriferousness.

Farter users pride themselves on the gaseous, insubstantial, ephemeral nature of their "farting" and "sniffing." They consider any piece of written communication that actually has any length, breadth, or substance to be a "turd."

Wait a minute - my wife is telling me that somebody already invented this - it's called "Birdpoop" or something like that.

Oh well, I passed the 140 character limit a long time ago anyway.

Time to flush.

Did I just get a death threat live on Press TV?

Does Israel flack Kenneth Katzman's demand that I be “taken off the air entirely, from every show, everywhere in the world” sound like a death threat? (How else could I possibly be removed from all of the hundreds of shows I guest on, as well as those I host?)

I guess some people just can't handle the truth.

Lyin’ for Zion: Pro-Israel media incites genocide

http://truthjihad.com/news/?p=171

http://presstv.com/detail/2012/11/21/273674/zionist-media-distort-gaza-genocide-truth/

British pro-Israel extremist Charlie Wolf thinks it’s “anti-Semitic” to ask any questions about 9/11.

  
Who’s afraid of the big bad Zionist, Charlie Wolf?
Not me.

I got into a little verbal tiff with Charlie on yesterday’s Press TV interview – watch the fireworks here.

I’m a fair-minded, polite person. So normally I let people have their say, as my radio show fans know. But if the person I’m talking to is being a real asshole – like Sean Hannity, Juan Cole,  or Charlie Wolf – I’ll occasionally throw the rules out the window and fight no-holds-barred.
Even though Charlie started the rudeness, I was afraid Press TV might punish me with a six-week suspension, or a ten thousand dollar fine, for interrupting Charlie, telling him to shut up, and accusing him of mendacity and incitement to genocide. But it turns out that in television debating, as in televised sports, brawls are good for ratings. Or as the Irish proverb puts it: If you want a crowd, start a fight.

So Press TV is called me back for another go at Charlie today. It should be showing up there soon.

Meanwhile, here is yesterday’s show, which is rapidly going viral.

TSA turkeys butcher Americans for Thanksgiving

"I'm going to grope your genitals, and if you so much as flinch, this thing is going straight up your ass. Have a pleasant journey, and happy holidays!"
Every year, Americans butcher fifty million turkeys for Thanksgiving.
But now, turkeys – of the featherless variety – are taking revenge.
The flock of pathetic, soulless, two-digit-IQ turkeys whose only skills are the ability to push buttons that irradiate and virtually strip-search airline passengers – and to clumsily grope the genitalia of men, women and children – will be slaughtering large numbers of Americans during the upcoming holiday season...

Now it’s payback time! Why Obama should bust Netanyahu for 9/11



by Kevin Barrett, for Press TV

All observers admit it: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did everything in his power to destroy President Barack Obama’s political career.

President Obama should return the favor.

He should destroy Netanyahu’s career in the biggest, most spectacular way possible – by busting Netanyahu for 9/11.

Why didn’t the Republicans steal the election?

Are the 2012 election results "the straight poop" -
even though the voting machines are Republican? If so, why?

A brief survey – best answers win valuable prizes!

by Kevin Barrett, TruthJihad.com

We know who “won.”

But we don’t know why.

Specifically, we don’t know why Republicans didn’t steal this presidential election, like they did in 2000 and 2004.

After all, almost all of the “black box” voting machines that control American elections are owned by Republicans. All of the machines in Colorado, and many of those in Ohio, are actually owned by Mitt Romney!

So TruthJihad.com has decided to sponsor a survey. Why do YOU think the Republicans didn’t steal this Presidential election?

Choose one or more of the alternatives below, or write in your own reason. To submit your answer, simply respond in the comments, or send your response to: truthjihad(at)gmail(dot)com. The best response will win free copies of two paradigm-busting books: The Wandering Who? by Gilad Atzmon, and Questioning the War on Terror by Kevin Barrett.

Why didn’t the Republicans steal the election?

A) It wasn’t close enough, so it would have been too obvious, and the people might have finally caught on.

B) The New World Order thinks it can achieve its agenda better with slick stealth fascists like Obama and his neo-libs rather than  dumb blatant fascists like Romney and his neocons.

C) The Zionist elite realized that Netanyahu is insane, and that war on Iran would be fatal to Israel, so they opted for Obama as the “good for Israel” candidate.

D) After Karl Rove “terminated” his top computer vote theft expert, Mike Connell, in 2008, the Republicans couldn’t find anybody talented enough to replace him – perhaps because fewer and fewer people with three-digit IQs are Republicans.

E) Veterans Today exposed so many Romney scandals – his drug money laundering, his Mossad spying, his Cuban mistress, his draft evasion, his subservience to Netanyahu, his ownership of voting machines – that any blatant election theft by such a notorious criminal would have been way too obvious and way too destabilizing.

F) Romney’s Republican strategists can see that the American empire is heading down the toilet bowl of history, and they don’t want to be blamed for what’s going to happen during the next four years.

G) American elections are squeaky-clean, President Jimmy Carter is crazy, articles like this are just conspiracy theories, so let’s all just go back to watching Fox News.

H) (your answer)

Black Tuesday: Mourning the death of American democracy

This election day, whoever you vote for, dress in black to mourn the death of democracy.

By Kevin Barrett, TruthJihad.com



Bev Harris of BlackBoxVoting.org suggests that you wear the color of the party you're voting for on election day: blue for Democrat, red for Republican, green for Green, and so on. She says the black box voting machines, many owned by Mitt Romney, cannot be trusted to count your vote. So the only meaningful way to express your political preference is through the color of your clothing.

But I say: Let's dress in black for "black Tuesday" - to mourn the death of democracy.

Al-Qaeda operates on behalf of Israel, West

 
-Press TV (watch video)


The al-Qaeda mercenaries in Syria operate on behalf of the Israeli regime and the West, aiming to break up the Middle East and spread sectarianism, an analyst tells Press TV.


Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri recently called for support for the foreign-backed insurgents in Syria in their fight against the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Meanwhile, despite a temporary truce that took effect in Syria on Friday, the insurgents launched attacks in several areas, killing dozens of people and injuring tens of others.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011. Many people, including large numbers of security forces, have been killed in the turmoil.

Damascus blames the West and some of its regional allies, including Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey, for arming and funding the insurgents.

Press TV has conducted an interview with Kevin Barrett, an author and Islamic Studies expert, from Madison, to further discuss the issue.

Barrett is joined by two additional guests: Sheikh Omar Bakri, a Salafist activist from Tripoli; and Omar Nashabi, with Al-Akhbar newspaper, from Beirut. The following is a rough transcription of the interview with Barrett.

Press TV: Why do you think that the Syrian government even agreed, to begin with, to this ceasefire?

Barrett: I think the Syrian government has a lot of tough choices in front of it. In the long run, the Syrian government knows that it’s going to have to reform; but right now, it’s fighting a destabilization campaign which is being led by the US-Zionist axis of evil, as we might term them, with support from Saudi Arabia and, unfortunately, Turkey, which looked like it was going to be an honest player in the Middle East just a year ago.

Of course, a ceasefire is a good idea. It’s Eid al-Adha. Eid Mubarak to everyone. Muslims should not be killing fellow Muslims any time and especially not on Eid al-Adha. Naturally, the idea of a ceasefire is very appealing.

As I understand it, the Syrian government entertained or accepted the idea of a ceasefire, and the first party that rejected it was one of these groups that called themselves an al-Qaeda affiliate.

The idea of an al-Qaeda affiliate which claims to be fighting for Islam, to be destabilizing an Islamic country on behalf of the Zionists and the American empire is kind of laughable.

I think one of the reasons that they won’t honor a ceasefire for Eid is that al-Qaeda is essentially an infiltrated organization that operates on behalf of the empire rather than fighting against it.

If you look at who al-Qaeda has actually killed over the years, they’ve killed almost entirely their fellow Muslims. In these embassy bombings in Africa that they claimed credit for, they killed almost entirely Muslim Africans. In the fighting that they’ve done against the Russian empire, they ended up killing a lot of fellow Muslims there.

They’ve killed very, very few Americans and Israelis.

Al-Qaeda, of course, did not have anything to do with the 9/11 attacks. That was an inside job run by people in the US and Israeli intelligence apparatus.

Al-Qaeda is really a manipulated group that serves to smear Islam. It’s created a negative brand name that only about seven percent of Muslims like, and the other 90 percent-plus don’t like. It’s destabilizing the Middle East on behalf of Zionism and the US empire.

That’s what we’re seeing in Syria today. When it rejects a ceasefire for Eid al-Adha, that just shows us that this group is really not much more of a Muslim group anymore than the people who are pretending to be 9/11 hijackers in Florida were actual Muslims. These were people who were well known to be taking drugs, visiting prostitutes and so on...

(In response to rhetoric by previous guest speaker, Sheikh Omar Bakri) He’s kind of insisting that al-Qaeda is a wonderful Sunni group fighting on behalf of Sunnis; is a perfect example of the sectarian nature of this group.

These people are tasked by the Zionist and the empire with spreading sectarianism in the Muslim world, that is breaking up Muslim countries into different sects and different nationalities.

Of course, al-Qaeda is mainly about sectarianism and it’s part of this crazy takfiri ideology of this tiny minority of extremist Muslims who say that anybody who doesn’t believe exactly what we believe is an evil apostate that could be killed - an evil unbeliever. This is nonsense...

Press TV: Looking at the situation now, the Syrian government said that it was going to abide by the ceasefire. Of course, we know that there have been attacks and now the opposition is claiming that the Syrian government is actually the one that broke the truce.

Your perspective, from a political perspective, do you think that it would be in the interests of the Syrian government, on the one hand, to say that they would stand by a ceasefire and then breaking it themselves? Let’s look at this, from your perspective. I would like to hear your take.

Barrett: As I understand it, the Syrian government did some serious reflection before they accepted the ceasefire proposal. There was some dissidents within the ranks of the Syrian army. There were people who thought that a ceasefire would be in the interests of those fighting against the Syrian government.

But in the end, as I understand it, the Syrian government did accept the ceasefire, and that it was first broken by these people claiming to be al-Qaeda.

One never really knows precisely what’s happening on the ground in these kinds of situations. The first casualty of war is always the truth. The narrative, as I understand it, that makes the most sense is the way I described it.

Again, I think that stabilization in Syria, calming things down, ending the killing, ending the suffering and bloodshed that the other guest referred to is in the interests of the Syrian government and in the interests of the people of the Middle East.

It’s not in the interests of the people in the region to have the situation deteriorate and fall apart into bloodshed and chaos.

I agree that the Syrian government does need to evolve and become more representative of its people. There’s no question about that. The way to make that happen is not through a divisive civil war pitting different Alawites against Sunnis, against Kurds and so on, breaking it up into little pieces.

That’s exactly the... Israeli plan, to destroy the Middle East by breaking it into tiny little pieces along ethnic and sectarian lines. That’s exactly what these al-Qaeda people are working for. If one didn’t know better, one would think al-Qaeda was a brand invented by the Israelis themselves.

In fact, it may have been because Bernard Lewis, the Zionist strategist and Orientalist, has been talking for years before there was al-Qaeda, for decades, actually, about needing to create a group modeled on the Ismaili assassins of the Middle Ages to destabilize the Middle East on behalf of Western intervention.

I think that stability is obviously in the interests of the people in the Middle East and in the Syrian government. So, I think that they did accept the ceasefire. It’s the forces of destabilization that have rejected it and broken it.

Press TV: What is the key to bringing peace to Syria, your perspective?

Barrett: I don’t know if there’s a single key. I think we have to get back to the spirit of Islam. We’re in the Eid al-Adha holiday right now and we need to think about the spirit of unity.

“Tohid”, which is the absolute Unity of God, is reflected in the unity of creation and all of God’s creatures, all Muslims and all people. We shouldn’t be splitting off into different sects, hating people who don’t believe what we believe.

We need to reach out to people from other sects. As Muslims, especially, we need to reach out to other kinds of Muslims who don’t think the way we do, and cross this kind of divide, and end this kind of crazy sectarian conflict that’s being sponsored by the enemies of the Middle East, the enemies of Islam, the people who want to break it up into pieces. We really need to start talking to each other instead of killing each other.

Mitt Romney Originally Planned to be in NYC on 9/11

Did Bibi "9/11 is very good" Netanyahu warn his old friend Mitt to stay away from Ground Zero on 9/11?

Change of Schedule Saved Mitt Romney From Being Near the World Trade Center on 9/11

-Shoestring 9/11 blog
Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential candidate, was originally going to be at a public event near the World Trade Center on the morning of September 11, 2001, but a late change to his plans meant the event was rescheduled and he was out of harm's way when the 9/11 attacks occurred. Romney is therefore one of a number of prominent individuals known to have avoided danger--and possible death--due to a change to, or a deviation from, their plans for September 11.

Romney was, at that time, the president of the Salt Lake Organizing Committee (SLOC) for the 2002 Winter Olympic Games. He went to Washington, DC, on September 10 to talk to members of Congress about security at the Winter Olympics. [1] The final $12.7 million of federal money needed to cover security for the games had mistakenly been omitted from Congress's budget, and although the Olympics organizers were "confident" the error could be corrected, Romney went to Washington to make sure the money didn't "slip away," according to the Deseret News. [2] As well as meeting with members of Congress on September 10, Romney also met with FBI Director Robert Mueller that day. [3]

ROMNEY WAS SET TO ATTEND EVENT IN BATTERY PARK

Mitt Romney's original plan for the morning of September 11 was to attend what Romney called "an elaborate press conference" in Battery Park, just a few blocks south of the World Trade Center, at which the names of the torchbearers selected to carry the Olympic flame across the United States to Salt Lake City would be announced. Those who would have attended, along with Romney, included other SLOC officials, representatives of the Olympic torch relay sponsors, and a number of torchbearers from the New York area. [4] The event was set to take place at 9:00 a.m., around the time that planes crashed into the Twin Towers. [5]

The original date for the press conference had been set by the SLOC's "public relations people," according to Romney. [6] But a couple of weeks before September 11, the event was rescheduled to take place on September 12 instead of September 11. [7] The reason for this, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, was that "Romney had extended a series of meetings in Washington with U.S. Congressional leaders." [8] Cindy Gillespie, the vice president of federal relations for the SLOC, had arranged a meeting with House and Senate appropriators at 10:00 a.m. on September 11. Romney has written that on the morning of September 11, therefore, he was with Gillespie in her office in Washington, helping to put the finishing touches on their presentation. [9]

As a result of this late change of plans, Mitt Romney was well away from the WTC at the time of the terrorist attacks there. A spokeswoman later commented that it was "really a blessing" that the date of the SLOC press conference was changed. "We were very fortunate," she said. The Deseret News noted that those set to attend the event in Battery Park "would have been standing near the base of [the] World Trade Center when airplanes slammed into it had SLOC president Mitt Romney's schedule not changed." [10]

BATTERY PARK WAS CAUGHT IN THE DUST CLOUD WHEN THE WTC COLLAPSED

Although it was about half a mile from the World Trade Center, Battery Park was still a dangerous place to be when the Twin Towers collapsed, as has been made clear by people who were there at the time. For example, Lisa Stein, the deputy national editor of U.S. News & World Report, was just north of the park when the South Tower came down at 9:59 a.m. on September 11. She described what it was like there, writing: "All hell broke loose. The air filled with thick smoke and ash. Emergency crews screamed at us to leave. There was a new sense of danger and panic. People rushed to get to the tip of Manhattan." Stein continued: "[T]he smoke was moving so fast I could barely breathe or see. I thought we were going to choke to death. Everyone was drenched in soot and smoke. People covered their faces with their shirts or anything they could find to keep from inhaling ash and smoke." [11]

Brian Gregorek was also in Battery Park when the South Tower came down. When the "plume of soot and ashes" from the collapse "worked its way toward Battery Park," he and many others reportedly "huddled on the ground, pulling their shirts over their faces so they could breathe." Gregorek has recalled: "When I peeked out, I couldn't see two feet in front of my face. People were being trampled. I was terrified; all I could think of was, 'How do I get out of here?'" Gregorek added: "I was praying, thinking of my family and friends. I didn't really know how much danger I was in, but I prepared myself for death." [12]

Romney and the other people set to attend the SLOC press conference avoided this terrifying scene because their event was moved back a day, to accommodate Romney's schedule. Furthermore, had the press conference taken place on September 11, as originally planned, it is possible that Romney or others at the event would have headed toward the World Trade Center after the planes hit the Twin Towers, to see what was happening. Had they done so, they could have been in particular danger when the towers collapsed.

In fact, even though the press conference had been rescheduled, one of Romney's colleagues, SLOC spokeswoman Caroline Shaw, was supposed to be in Battery Park at 9:00 a.m. on September 11 to prepare for the following day's event. But, fortunately, she was in the lobby of her hotel when the attacks occurred and came to no harm. [13]

OTHER PEOPLE AVOIDED BEING AT THE WTC ON SEPTEMBER 11 DUE TO A CHANGE OF PLANS

Other prominent individuals, besides Mitt Romney, are known to have avoided the chaos--and the possibility of being killed--when the Twin Towers were attacked and subsequently collapsed on September 11, because of changes to, or deviations from, their original plans.

For example, Jim Pierce, a cousin of then-President George W. Bush, should have been at a business conference on the 105th floor of the South Tower. But on September 10, it was decided that the meeting would take place in a different building, reportedly because the number of people scheduled to attend it "had outgrown the conference room" in the South Tower. [14] And Larry Silverstein, the WTC leaseholder, should have been at work on the 88th floor of the North Tower at the time of the attacks, but, instead, he was at home. Reportedly, this was because his wife had insisted that he go to an appointment with his dermatologist that morning. [15]

Sarah Ferguson, the former wife of Britain's Prince Andrew, should have been on the 101st floor of the North Tower for a meeting at 8:45 a.m. on September 11--a minute before the plane hit the tower. However, according to ABC News, she "was running late" and so she arrived at the door of the tower "seconds after the first plane hit." Her car then "sped off to safety." [16] And pop star Michael Jackson was supposed to be at a meeting at the top of one of the WTC towers that morning, but missed it because, he said, he'd overslept. [17]

It is plausible that some people changed their plans, or deviated from their schedule, and thereby avoided being at, or near, the World Trade Center when the 9/11 attacks occurred simply as a result of luck. However, investigators should determine whether any of these cases of apparent good fortune were due to something more sinister.

Could some people have changed their plans, or made sure they were running late, because they were advised to do so by individuals who had foreknowledge of the 9/11 attacks and therefore knew it would be dangerous to be in the vicinity of the WTC on the morning of September 11? If anyone did indeed know in advance what was going to happen, this would imply that the terrorist attacks could, and should, have been prevented.

My friend Ed's sleazeball brother, Tommy Thompson, a 9/11 perp?

Tommy Thompson needs to be hauled into court and questioned about 9/11. His late brother Ed supported 9/11 truth, and recognized that Tommy is a sleazeball.
For the record: I don't think my late friend Ed's sleazeball brother, Tommy Thompson, was a conscious participant in the treasonous 9/11-anthrax false flag attack.

Tommy is running for Senate here in Wisconsin. He's in a neck-and-neck race with Tammy Baldwin, and is drawing flak for running a deceptive ad trying to make Baldwin look unpatriotic on 9/11.

Tommy may be a sleazeball, as Ed admitted to me many times, but he isn't a complete scumbag. (At least I hope not.) Since I haven't seen convincing evidence against Tommy, I think his name should be removed from this list of suspected 9/11 perpetrators.

But even if he wasn't a conscious participant in the worst crime in American history, Tommy was in the middle of those who were. And he made big money from the huge false-flag perpetrated by those surrounding him.

As Bush-Cheney's HHS Secretary, Tommy Thompson hired Jerome Hauer, a key perpetrator of the 9/11-anthrax attack, as Director of the Office of Public Health Preparedness. (Listen to Hauer's very revealing conversation with Sander Hicks - a textbook case of what cops call "guilty demeanor.")

Tommy needs to be hauled into court and asked who told him to hire Hauer.

And since he was right there in the middle of the gang that pulled off the worst crime in US history, he should stop trying to flog Baldwin on 9/11. Some day it will come back to bite him.
Tommy Thompson, who hired key 9/11 perp Jerome Hauer, then profited mightily from the crime, is running deceptive ads trying to make Senate opponent Tammy Baldwin look "unpatriotic" on 9/11.

Exclusive! Larry Silverstein explains why United Airlines should be held liable for 9/11

Larry Silverstein - the reputed organized crime kingpin who gallantly relieved New York City of its asbestos-riddled, money-hemorrhaging World Trade Center - has been collecting billions in insurance money. His current lawsuit targets United Airlines:


World Trade Center Property Owner Claims United Airlines is Liable for 9/11 Terrorist Attacks 

According to the above Travelers Today news report, Silverstein "feels that both airlines should be held liable for the loss of property and business."

Silverstein "feels"? The reptile-faced capo actually has feelings?! In order to get to the bottom of the mystery of what exactly could be going on in the mind of Larry Silverstein, repeat winner of the All-Time Award for Chutzpah, I sat down for an exclusive interview with "Mr. Pull-It." The interview was conducted at Silverstein's new luxury condo, beautifully situated overlooking the blazing beach of the Ocean of Everlasting Fire in the Seventh Circle of Hell, where Silverstein plans to retire and spend the rest of eternity after his execution.

Interviewer
So Larry, you certainly have a lovely view here.

Silverstein
Yes, the big boss downstairs had it built specially for me. After I retire as a mass murderer, crimes against humanity specialist, and insurance fraudster, I look forward to a nice, long, eternal retirement, sizzling on the blazing beach, swimming in the boiling ocean of fire, and being endlessly ripped apart by the sharks of everlasting justice.

Interviewer
Cool. So tell me, why do you "feel the airlines should be held liable" for destroying those asbestos-riddled buildings you demolished on 9/11?

Silverstein
It beats blaming Greyhound or Amtrak, doesn't it?

Interviewer
Not really. The videos purporting to show passenger airliners hitting the Towers are a joke. They show "Flight 175" going almost 600 miles per hour! A Boeing airliner near sea level couldn't possibly go that fast, much less fly accurately. It's just as absurd to say that those videos show a 757 piloted by hijackers as to say they show a Greyhound bus or an Amtrak train.

Silverstein
So what does that say about the airlines?

Interviewer
That they're innocent, because there were no hijackings on 9/11?

Silverstein
Wrong. It shows that they are guilty…of criminal stupidity! Any moron with two functioning synapses and eyes can see that my terminally-asbestos-infected skyscrapers were blown up, not knocked down by planes. And yet the airlines pretend to agree with me that their two planes knocked down my three buildings. That level of idiocy and cowardice is off-the-charts. Paying me billions of dollars is a very small penalty, compared to what they deserve.

Interviewer
I see your point.  But the news story says you "believe that because of a poor security system, hijackers Mohammed Atta and Abdul Aziz al Omari were easily able to board the plane that was used in the attack." You've already admitted explosives, not planes, destroyed the World Trade Center. So what makes you believe that Atta boarded a 767 in Boston? How did he call his father from Canada on September 12th? Why did ten of the alleged nineteen hijackers turn up alive after 9/11, as confirmed by scholarly research published by Europe's leading academic press? Why are there no actual, numbered, correctly-dated security videos showing any Arab hijackers boarding any of the alleged attack planes? Why have we heard no testimony from any airline employee who would have ticketed and boarded them? Why have the actual ticket stubs, required by law to be saved, never been produced? Why are there no Arab names on any of the absurdly-short, mutually-contradictory unofficial passenger lists? Why was there never an official passenger list for any of the four planes? Why have all the non-Arab passengers allegedly been identified by DNA evidence, yet the US government has refused requests by the alleged hijackers' relatives to do similar tests to identify the alleged hijackers? Why are so many of the names on those passenger lists people who work in highly-classified military research, including developing remote-hijacking devices?  Why were two of the planes not even scheduled to fly on 9/11, while the other two were flying around long after they'd crashed, and only de-registered by the FAA many years later?

Silverstein
That's why the news story says I BELIEVE the official nonsense. "Belief" does not have to entail supporting evidence. People believe all sorts of crazy things in the absence of evidence. One of the greatest Christian theologians even said: "I believe because it is absurd." Why shouldn't I affirm my belief in something absurd, just like everybody else only more so?

Interviewer
The Travelers Today news story says: "Atta and al Omari boarded the American Airlines flight that was headed to Boston at Portland International Jetport. The plane never made it to Boston and was used as a weapon to take down the World Trade Center." In other words, it says a small commuter plane hit the North Tower. Yet the actual official story claims that Atta took a small commuter plane from Portland to Boston, changed planes in Boston, and flew Flight 11, a 767 not a commuter plane, into the World Trade Center. Did Travelers Today screw up, or has 9/11 scriptwriter Philip Zelikow made yet another change in the official story?

Silverstein
You'll have to ask Zelikow. I'm just a producer. He's the scriptwriter.  And don't get me started about Zelikow. Zelikow never tells me anything. He never told me the cover story for Building 7. So I had to ad lib about "how there's been such a terrible loss of life, maybe the best thing to do is pull it." That one didn't go over too well. But it's Zelikow's fault - he's the scriptwriter, and he didn't give me my lines in time.

Interviewer
Well, something obviously went wrong with WTC-7; blowing it up in full view of the world at 5:20 in the afternoon was not part of the script. You should have been able to ad lib a better excuse than "we decided to demolish it to save lives," especially since nobody had been inside WTC-7 since around 11 a.m.

Silverstein
Listen, smarty-pants, if you think you can do better at illegal demolition, mass murder, and multi-billion-dollar insurance fraud, you just go right ahead! Historically unprecedented crimes against humanity are not as easy as some people seem to think. You kibbitzers have all the answers: "Larry's an idiot, he confessed to demolishing 7 on national TV." Well, what would YOU have said? We have to blow up a goddamned 47-story building in plain sight, the most obvious, perfectly symmetrical, free-fall-speed controlled demolition in history, crimp at the top, countdown goes out over police radio, the works…what am I supposed to say, that it just fell down because of a couple of tiny office fires? It just committed suicide for no reason? How the hell am I supposed to know that they're going to choose such a ridiculous alibi? "It just fell down from tiny office fires." What a goddamned joke! That's only about a million times stupider than saying Elvis blew it up from outer space. Zelikow thinks he's such a genius, but he's the biggest goddamned idiot I ever met in my life. He couldn't cover up a fucking teacup with a tablecloth.

Interviewer
The article says: "Silverstein has already received damages from his insurer,  but he is looking for more. The hearing of his case was on Thursday and focused on  the destruction of 7 World Trade Center which also collapsed after the attacks, according to Reuters." How can you be asking for billions of dollars in insurance money from the airlines for the destruction of Building 7, when not only was Building 7 never hit by a plane, but you've actually confessed on national television to blowing it up yourself?

Silverstein
I told you earlier: Since the airlines are going along with the "blame the planes" ruse, they are guilty of terminal stupidity, cowardice, and complicity in crimes against humanity. Every executive from those airlines, and every one of those lawyers, deserves to be right up there on the scaffold next to me. When my close mafia associate Judge Hellerstein orders them to pay me billions of dollars, they'll be getting off lightly.

Interviewer
Maybe so, but you'll be getting off a lot more lightly. At least for awhile.

Silverstein
Well, they didn't name the chutzpah award after me for nothing. Listen, I have to get going - I used my first round of WTC insurance money to buy the Sears Tower, and we're setting up some "eye-rainian" mini-nukes there, if you catch my drift.

Interviewer
Okay, thank you, Larry Silverstein. Here on Truth Jihad Radio we do appreciate people telling the truth boldly and frankly, like you did when you confessed to demolishing Building 7. I'm glad you're still speaking as boldly and frankly as ever.

Silverstein
Happy to have gotten away with it.

Interviewer
That was Larry Silverstein, all-time Chutzpah Award winner, self-confessed demolisher of World Trade Center Building 7, insurance fraud criminal, and conspirator in crimes against humanity, "telling it like it is" right here on Truth Jihad Radio.

Election fraud storm-clouds loom over Presidential race

 

by Kevin Barrett, for Press TV


Will Mitt Romney try to steal the US presidential election?

And if he does, will Americans – especially African-Americans – take to the streets?

These are the two key questions of the 2012 election season. Yet the mainstream media, owned by the same interests behind the “black-box” voting machines that manufacture election outcomes, won't touch the issue. 

Despite the thunderous silence of the media, all signs are pointing towards another neocon-Republican election theft attempt, like the successful ones of 2000 and 2004.

One warning sign: The appearance of blatantly fraudulent public opinion polls giving Romney a substantial lead over Obama. While all other polls show that Obama has enough of an edge in the swing states to constitute an electoral-college “firewall,” Gallup's national polls – using a “likely voter” model that apparently posits an inverse correlation between voting and skin pigmentation – currently give Romney an edge of more than five points in the popular vote. 

Why would the Republicans falsify a prominent national poll? To give Romney “momentum,” and create the illusion of plausibility when rigged voting machines hand him a “surprise victory.” 

But why just one poll? 

Because it's doable. Rigging ALL the polls is a herculean task, even for a party backed by the world's biggest crime syndicate.

Is there any evidence that Romney will try to steal the swing states he needs to capture the White House? Unfortunately, yes.

Believe it or not, Romney actually OWNS the black-box voting machines that will fabricate – not count – the votes in Ohio, the most important swing state. (“Black box” machines are designed with no transparent link between the votes that go in, and the “results” that come out.)

As my recent radio guest Bob Fitrakis and two co-authors explain in their article Does the Romney Family Now Own Your e-Vote:

Will you cast your vote this fall on a faulty electronic machine that's partly owned by the Romney Family? Will that machine decide whether Romney will then inherit the White House?
Through a closely held equity fund called Solamere, Mitt Romney and his wife, son and brother are major investors in an investment firm called H.I.G. Capital. H.I.G. in turn holds a majority share and three out of five board members in Hart Intercivic, a company that owns the notoriously faulty electronic voting machines that will count the ballots in swing state Ohio November 7. Hart machines will also be used elsewhere in the United States ( Hart Intercivic).

In other words, a candidate for the presidency of the United States, and his brother, wife and son, have a straight-line financial interest in the voting machines that could decide this fall's election. These machines cannot be monitored by the public. But they will help decide who "owns" the White House. 

They are especially crucial in Ohio, without which no Republican candidate has ever won the White House. In 2004, in the dead of election night, an electronic swing of more than 300,000 votes switched Ohio from the John Kerry column to George W. Bush, giving him a second term. A virtual statistical impossibility, the 6-plus% shift occurred between 12:20 and 2am election night as votes were being tallied by a GOP-controlled information technology firm on servers in a basement in Chattanooga, Tennessee... (Read the complete article here.)

And it gets worse. Karl Rove and the Republican election fraud machine not only stole the 2004 elections, they murdered the computer expert who orchestrated the theft, Mike Connell, shortly before he was scheduled to testify in court against Rove.

Since the appearance of black box voting machines, a massive five-point gap has opened up between actual vote counts, as documented by exit polls, and the “official results” manufactured by the machines. In every single case, the five-point edge favors the Republicans. 

This should not be surprising, since the voting machines (like the votes they fabricate) are manufactured by Republicans.

Last summer, here in Wisconsin, the exit polls showed that Republican Governor Scott Walker did not win his recall election. But the black-box machines gave him the obligatory five-point Republican edge. 

Since the discrepancies between exit polls and black-box-machine-manufactured results are so obvious, the powers-that-be have decided to get rid of exit polling in 19 states - a decision that virtually guarantees a fraudulent 2012 election. As the Washington Post suggests, "The Fix" is in.


Former President Jimmy Carter says that American elections, unlike elections in banana republics, are so hopelessly corrupt that they are not even worth monitoring. Carter should know; he was overthrown in an “October Surprise” coup d'├ętat by the Bush Crime Family in 1980, as revealed by former Bush Administration official Barbara Honegger.

Since the Republicans blatantly and shamelessly stole the presidential elections in 2000 and 2004, why did they refrain from stealing the 2008 elections? Perhaps Obama's margin of victory was simply too wide for a “surprise McCain win” to be even remotely plausible. And perhaps they actually didn't mind allowing Obama, a timid, compromising Democrat, to put anti-Bush-war Americans back to sleep for a few years.

Republicans are blanketing African-American neighborhoods with these billboards to try to terrorize people into not voting.
There is one more factor that may have prevented an election theft in 2008, and might complicate one in 2012: The fear that Obama supporters in general, and black people in particular, might engage in widespread, unruly protests that would draw unwanted attention to the Republican election fraud machine. 

As my Truth Jihad Radio guest John Hankey put it, African-Americans, unlike white liberals, are not “a bunch of pussies.” Kill white liberal heroes JFK and RFK, or steal the presidency from white liberals Jimmy Carter, Al Gore, or John Kerry, and the white liberals are too terrified to even whimper. Kill a black hero like Martin Luther King, or even just beat up an ordinary black guy like Rodney King, and African Americans might just get angry enough to protest in a fashion that cannot be ignored.

If Romney steals the election, and African-Americans pour into the streets, they will be joined, at least in some areas, by angry whites, hispanics, and others.

After Rodney King was brutally beaten on-camera by police, I participated in the huge protests that shut down San Francisco's Financial District. And I wasn't the only white guy out there. All kinds of people – white, black, latino, male, female – took to the streets to make the owners of the Financial District take a multi-million-dollar hit, driving home the message that we weren't going to stand for this kind of racist outrage.

If the Republicans steal another presidential election, this time from the first African-American president, and award it to a career criminal responsible for flooding America's black neighborhoods with crack cocaine – an empty-suit android who perfectly embodies every negative stereotype about rich white guys, and then some – America might experience a wave of protests that would make the aftermaths of the Martin Luther King assassination, and the Rodney King beating, look like a picnic in the park.
