History has shown us, however, that acts of violence, with or without declared sponsorship, are not the exclusive province of crazy loners or renegade regimes. In fact, we know from experience that, as horrendous as it sounds, those in power have sometimes terrorized their own populace while blaming the violence on others. The reasons for this vary widely, but include justifying retributive acts abroad or domestic repression.
One classic technique of creating disorder to justify subsequent repression or military action is the “false flag” attack, so named to describe a ship’s flying an enemy flag while attacking one of its own country’s vessels. The cases in which such attacks were intended to become the basis for a severe reaction could fill a book. Here are a few:

COINTELPRO Techniques for dilution, misdirection and control of a internet forum..
There are several techniques for the control and manipulation of a internet forum no matter what, or who is on it. We will go over each technique and demonstrate that only a minimal number of operatives can be used to eventually and effectively gain a control of a 'uncontrolled forum.'
Technique #1 - 'FORUM SLIDING'
Is a network of disinformationists muddying the waters on the Aurora Shooting and other terror events?
It seems some are noticing that there seems to be a heavy campaign underway to distort the events surrounding the Aurora Colorado Dark Knight Rises theater shooting. It is mainly coming from a group of websites associated with stringing the most outlandish conspiracy theories up with 9/11 and other terrorist events occurring around the world. Most of these types of websites deal with completely outlandish subjects such as Alien Abductions and stir those into the pot with honest discussions. A few are more subtle.
Cannonfireblogspot.com has been following the story but as is usual, the proprietor is injecting tiny amounts of disinformation into the story as he goes.
He loves to tell his readership how he is horrified by all of the ignorance on the internet, yet he regularly links to rightwing propaganda videos but makes disclaimers to his supposed leftwing readership to just ignore the propaganda parts but pay attention to the parts that he feels important. No credible researcher would take such a tactic unless their motive was to muddy the waters.
MEDIA ROOTS – Abby and Robbie Martin talk about Senator Rand Paul's intimidation games against journalism and his attempt to strip Abby of her press credentials; the distraction of the truth movement focusing on the terms 'Illuminati' and 'New World Order' instead of the key players and actions; gay rights and homophobia within the patriot and liberty movements.
9/11: Journey for Truth
Written by Marta Nielsen
Orcas Island resident Rena Patty embarks today on the journey of lifetime – a bicycle ride across America. Patty, with traveling companion Pamela Senzee from Phoenix, AZ, expects to take 90 days to reach their destination New York City. Both women are Action Group Team Leaders for the nonprofit Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth). Their journey is dedicated to all who have died and suffered loss on account of 9/11. Their mission is to educate the public about the scientific forensic evidence of the destruction of the three World Trade Center (WTC) hi-rises on 9/11 and to introduce people to the experts at AE911Truth.
Rena Patty will be educating Americans about the 9/11 evidence as she treks from coast to coast
The women have concern about the accuracy of reports produced by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the government agency tasked to analyze the destruction of the WTC hi-rises on 9/11. WTC building 7 was the third hi-rise to collapse on 9/11. At 5:20 p.m., WTC 7 collapsed suddenly into its own footprint in about 6.5 seconds, the first 2.25 seconds at a rate indistinguishable from free-fall. NIST claims the building fell because of normal office fires. Structural engineers from AE911Truth requested to see the computer model used by NIST to explain the sudden collapse of WTC 7. NIST refused, saying that to release the computer model would “jeopardize public safety.” More than 1700 credentialed architects and engineers have signed the AE911Truth petition calling for an independent investigation into the destruction of the WTC hi-rises on 9/11.
Pam Senzee has coordinated several successful events for AE911Truth in the Phoenix area
On their journey, Patty and Senzee are distributing a new documentary, “9/11: Experts Speak Out.” The documentary features interviews with the most highly credentialed AE911Truth petition signers. Experts like Richard Humenn, former chief electrical engineer for the WTC complex, and Roland Angle, a civil engineer who was responsible for designing blast resistance of the Minuteman Missile silos. Patty says, “This bike trip is not about us, it’s about introducing people to these experts.” The idea of a bike ride arose two months ago as Patty and Senzee brainstormed ideas of possible legal nonviolent actions to bring attention to this issue. Patty says, “My college degree is in science. The scientific evidence presented by AE911Truth looks extremely important to me. We wanted to do something big enough to let people know how important this issue is to us.”
Anticipating traveling 40–80 miles per day, the women will cross the North Cascades on Highway 20 and continue across the Rockies in northern Montana. They expect to arrive in New York City by late October. Patty visited the WTC site in October, 2011, while participating in the Occupy Wall Street protest in Zucotti Park in New York City.
I believe this important discussion broadcasted in Germany, Switzerland and Austria has never been translated into English. So I chose some segments of this over one hour show and made a quick translation:
Main proponents for a new investigation in this talk are:
* Dr. Daniele Ganser: A Swiss historian researching 9/11 at the University of Basel - www.danieleganser.ch
* Prof. Dr.Friedrich Steinhäusler. An Austrian expert for physics and material science at the University of Salzburg - www.uni-salzburg.at
Interestingly enough, Steinhäusler is also an advisor for NATO for the war against terrorism (at least they claim he is). Yet, he proposes questions concerning the collapse of the buildings like most physics studying the topic do. Considering that he is not only a physicists but also a academic in material science could make him another important expert in the debate.
During the whole show, the audience was clearly on the side of Ganser and Steinhäusler and the whole way the discussion was held and led was very fair. The main opponent to Ganser and Steinhäusler was the journalist Stefan Aust (former chief editor of "Der Spiegel"). He tried the usual way to discredit their trustworthiness, but did not succeed at all.
The station broadcasting it was ServusTV, a division of "Red Bull". It is available free to air in Germany, Austria and Switzerland via antenna or cable and via satellite even europewide. This is no small local tv station.
Final Roll Call for the First Generation of Truth Seekers (RIP VZ Lawton)
By Holland Vandennieuwenhof
The documentary A Noble Lie: Oklahoma City 1995 was released in December of 2011, the culmination of sixteen years of active resistance to the official story of the Oklahoma City bombing. The filmmakers dedicated two years of their lives to production, pouring every spare hour and spare dollar into making sure that the truth tellers’ story was told. If anything, A Noble Lie is a testament to the strength of the truth, the weakness of the lie and the will of whatever forces govern this plane to see evil exposed. But that was nothing compared to the long years in the wilderness the truth seekers faced from day one. We were just privileged to tell their story. As for justice, well that is an ideal we can strive for, and should. But the very fact that these atrocities occur tells us that justice is fickle, elusive and pinned down perhaps only by whatever the next world holds for us.
And with that we note with honor the recent death of V.Z. Lawton, a survivor of the bombing and a man who resisted the herd impulse to ignore his own eyes and ears in the face of authority. V.Z., 81 years old, passed away on July 23, 2012 after succumbing to cancer. Few men can say that they have been truly tested. Fewer still can say that they prevailed. V.Z. did both many times, and cracked jokes in-between.
V.Z. faced his mortality with a determination and hope that still shone from his eyes, and with a lack of fear that defined his presence on this earth. He had confronted death before. On April 19, 1995, seventeen years ago, V.Z. was sitting at his desk in the office of Housing and Urban Development in the A.P. Murrah Federal Building when the structure began to shake, the lights went out and something fell from the ceiling fell and struck him in the head, knocking him out cold. When he regained consciousness, he saw that the floor had collapsed to within inches of his desk. He stood over the stilled maelstrom below, half the building lie in ruins, crushed bodies beneath. He turned around and immediately went to the aid of his injured co-workers. He guided, carried and led them down several flights of stairs and busted open a warped steel door with his shoulder. After getting checked out at the hospital, he began walking home. He picked glass out of his body for months.
Real life shooting imitates training exercise at Parker medical school

Aurora Theater Shooting
The tragedy that played out in an Aurora movie theater Friday was ironically paralleled as a classroom learning experience in a medical school in Parker the same day.
Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine is in the middle of holding specialized classes in disaster life support for 150 second-year medical students. Along with response to natural disasters like hurricanes and floods and terrorist attacks, one of the scenarios being used to train the students is how to respond if a shooter fires at people in a movie theater and also uses a bomb in the attack.
"The irony is amazing, just amazing," said Rocky Vista Dean Dr. Bruce Dubin.

It’s often difficult for people who are aware of the evidence for the controlled demolition of the WTC skyscrapers to understand why so many Americans are unwilling to rationally discuss this vital information. For over ten years now, 9/11 Truth advocates have been trying to get relatives, friends, and strangers to listen to the undeniable facts that point to the need for a real 9/11 investigation. We often encounter emotional resistance, which poses the question: “Why is the evidence so difficult for so many people to accept?” In the new documentary, “9/11 Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out,” AE911Truth petition signers with psychological expertise step forward with answers.

In order to understand what nanothermite is, we first must understand what ordinary commercial thermite is. Thermite is a mixture of a metal and the oxide of another metal, usually aluminum (Al) and iron oxide (Fe2O3), in a granular or powder form. When ignited, the energetic Al-Fe thermite reaction produces molten iron and aluminum oxide, with the molten iron reaching temperatures well in excess of 4000° F. These temperatures are certainly high enough to allow cuts through structural steel, which generally has a melting point of around 2750° F.
There is also a variant of thermite known as thermate, which is a combination of thermite and sulfur, and is more efficient at cutting through steel. This form of thermite is believed to have been used in the demolition of World Trade Center Building 7. Although conventional thermite has the capability to cut through structural steel, it is technically an incendiary and not an explosive.
