Christopher Bollyn Found Guilty


Christopher Bollyn Found Guilty

By George Houde

Special to the Chicago Tribune


A Hoffman Estates writer who says he has been targeted by authorities because of his views was convicted Tuesday on charges stemming from a confrontation last summer with police outside his home.

Christopher Bollyn, 50, was found guilty of misdemeanor aggravated assault and resisting arrest after a four-day trial in the Rolling Meadows branch of Cook County Circuit Court.

Jurors deliberated about two hours before returning the verdict.

Bollyn, who has written for several Web sites and has claimed that Israeli agents were involved in the World Trade Center attack on Sept. 11, 2001, called police Aug. 15 to report a suspicious car in his neighborhood. The car was an unmarked squad with three tactical unit officers, and authorities said the officers pulled into Bollyn's driveway in the 200 block of Kingman Lane to identify themselves.

The officers testified that Bollyn became belligerent and that they tackled him and used a stun gun to subdue him after he told them he was going into his house to get "reinforcements."

Bollyn, a onetime candidate for mayor of Hoffman Estates, said the officers never identified themselves.

During closing arguments, defense lawyer Paul Moreschi said it was difficult to know for sure what happened but told jurors that the "militaristic appearance" of the officers disturbed Bollyn.

"To contend that these officers -- armed with guns, bullet-proof vests, a Taser, pepper spray and batons -- that they were somehow afraid of this guy in a Hawaiian shirt, standing next to his wife and daughter, is ridiculous," Moreschi said.

But prosecutors argued that the three men showed their badges and wore gear that clearly identified them as Hoffman Estates police officers.

"This defense is ridiculous," said James Pontrelli, an assistant state's attorney. "Even the defendant's wife testified that one of the officers 'showed me a shiny, little badge.' "

Pontrelli said after the verdict that Bollyn's claims of a conspiracy linked to his writings "was too hard of a story to sell to the jury."

Bollyn declined to talk to reporters afterward, except to say, "I just got found guilty, and I maintain my innocence."

Sentencing is scheduled for June 25.,1,1327095.story?ctrack=1&cset=true

Good Post

You beat me to the punch!

There's a good article in the Herald - it mentions the 9/11 connection:

"Bollyn, a self-described journalist, has written several articles posted online, including a series calling the Sept. 11 terrorists attacks a plot involving Israeli agents. He said the mainstream media have ignored facts and covered up a conspiracy.

After the verdict, friends and family said Bollyn had been targeted by police because of his political views. Prosecutor James Pontrelli dismissed that as "ridiculous." Pontrelli said Bollyn was looking for a confrontation with authority figures."

I'm glad some people in the

I'm glad some people in the 9/11 truth community still care about Bollyn. I hope he can successfully appeal this.

if Bollyn ends up in jail

if Bollyn ends up in jail they will be very sorry. we'll make this bigger than the free mumia campaign.

Bollyn's alleged belligerence

"The officers testified that Bollyn became belligerent and that they tackled him and used a stun gun to subdue him after he told them he was going into his house to get 'reinforcements.' "

Didn't Bollyn's wife testify?

Someone wrote that this may be a "test trial". Shouldn't it deserve more attention from truthers?

yes, it should. "The Central

yes, it should.

Yes, it SHOULD! And for some

Yes, it SHOULD! And for some f-ing reason Alex Jones hasn't covered it at ALL! What is that about? Bollyn has revealed more new information and done more research than anyone else in this movement, and yet he's found guilty in court and there's no one in the movement supporting him. Bollyn was assaulted on his own property by a police goon squad which is more, much more, than ever happened to Alex Jones or Jack Blood combined. Alex Jones just grumbles all f-ing day, sells his videos for profit, and doesn't make any new discoveries while Bollyn writes hard-hitting factual articles, gets tasered on his lawn in front of his family, and is now going to jail. Alex Jones grumbles that the police state is here citing a school child who gets suspended for pretending he has a gun, and doesn't even mention the most illustrative instance of that new police state which is what happened to Christopher Bollyn on his own property at night by plainclothes masked policemen. Shame on Alex Jones' phoney fury and empty rhetoric, and on truthers who should have given this more attention than it has received.

i think you're a bit harsh.......

to be fair, Alex did cover it a little bit(if only a link to Rense). but i agree, he hasnt done a good enough job on it overall. i dont know if its personal or not, but Alex needs to get over it if it is. it really makes no sense why he wouldnt be pushing this harder. im not sure if hes talked about it on his show or not. and as far as the profit thing goes, he gives his shit away for free all the time online and has yet to sue anyone for copyright infringement. yes, he probably whores his stuff a bit too much for most peoples taste but its not purely about profit, he clearly believes in his product. no problem there. also, Alex might be having the same problem that many 9/11 truthers seem to have when it comes to Bollyn. the old "anti-semite" accusations are sadly very effective and keep otherwise intelligent truthers from "going there" so to speak. i like to think Alex is a bit smarter than that but he has always shown some apprehension in that area like many truthers. there is no excuse for that.

Everyone knows when you go

Everyone knows when you go "there" it's over. Your credibility and reputation are shattered because you're just a batty anti-semite. I'm hoping that's the reason why Alex Jones doesn't back them up. And yet, he's a charlatan if that is in fact where the truth lies. Don't you get tired of him never being specific about who and how it was carried out? If he just keeps on about the nameless bogeymen out there like the "German death cult" and "CFR" and "evildoers" he'll never get the traction we need to make real progress. In this respect, Bollyn is a fearless leader in this cause, more so than Alex Jones. Jones hasn't put it all on the line for truth like Bollyn has. And it's tragic and criminal for Alex Jones to marginalize those who may in fact be uncovering the ultimate truth and details behind it all.

you have to remember that

you have to remember that Alex is about much more than just 9/11 though, hes far from a single issue activist. but yes, it does piss me off that hes not backing up Bollyn here and that he refuses to "go there" regularly or be specific in certain areas. but Alex Jones is not the be all end all of the alternative media. he is but one man and he is far from perfect. you shouldnt expect anything from him, he is what he is. though it is indeed cowardly if hes not talking about this for fear of being labeled an anti-semite. sadly thats pretty likely. i think at some point Alex made a tactical decision not to talk about certain things, to self-censor himself in a way. we can argue another time about if thats a smart move or just plain cowardly. i would probably say the latter. ive said it before though, Alex Jones is a net plus and he has forced the red pill down many peoples throats who otherwise might still be asleep. and once people "wake up" its not like Alex Jones is the only place they go to for info(for the most part anyway). would it be better if Alex went where we wanted him to on certain issues? of course, but that doesnt make him "criminal" in my opinion. and yes, Bollyn is clearly a much better researcher when it comes to 9/11, hes one of the best in my opinion.

"Not going there"

"Not going there" is one of the biggest and slickest little tricks that MSM and other collaborators use to steer the research away from the puppet masters and their sayanim ("helpers") involved in the 9/11 operations. You must learn to distinguish between Zionists and Jewish people. They do not want this distinction to be clearly and widely understood. This is why they burned down the Naturei Karta rabbis' synogogue last month, because these rabbis are anti-Zionists and anti-Israel. It was the World Zionist Congress who sent many Jews to their deaths during WWII because they did not want to emmigrate to Israel, so when it serves their political purposes, Zionists will kill both Jews and Goyim. That is why the Zionists are called Zionazis. The Irgun military wing of the Zionist movement actually offered their military services to Hitler. Do some research on this. I am not making this up. I wish I was though. It is horrible to find out that most of the modern history you have been taught is filled with lies and more lies. BTW, Dr Steven Jones is a very good friend of Christopher Bollyn's, both of whom have way bigger cajones than a lot of so-called "Truthers" It takes guts to really tell the truth!

glad to have you here

glad to have you here Lazlo.

I am glad your voice is also here, Chris

I always vote your comments up, BTW.

don't know what the f a lazlo toth is

but i love your posts. we need more people with cajones. thanks.

edit - lazlo toth, geologist. hungarian style. sorry, no offense.

thanks lazlo

i am glad i finally found this thread on Bollyn. not sure i care for the one on the wtcdemolition site...

i dont usually do this......

but i noticed every comment i made in this thread was just voted down. so which coward feels the need to vote down each one of my posts but doesnt have the heart to tell me why? petty motherfucker, do you go around the entire board doing that to me? fucking coward.......

Probably the same person who just voted me down in another thread without responding. Just a wild guess. Not to worry :) Remember, it's our responsibility to keep comments friendly and constructive, hahahaha.

haha, i was just about to

haha, i was just about to guess the same person(im assuming). he shall remain nameless until he has the spine to tell me why he votes me down. i gave him that same courtesy this morning.

oh you know its petty now. this is from another thread, it was voted down at about the same time as my comments here:

Ed is a much braver man than i'll ever be.

who the fuck would vote that down?!?!? unless its a personal thing they have about me? i should just say his fucking name already, i think its pretty obvious who the immature coward is. just fucking pathetic........

(I'm going to respond to your post since I can't edit my own, Chris.)

Although Chris knew what I meant, let me clarify for anyone else who may have misunderstood. It REALLY IS our responsibility to keep comments friendly and productive -- my "laughter" was a sardonic acknowledgment of the fact that IMO, Chris and I generally do NOT cross the line into open warfare, and exercise self-control where perhaps others are less able to. So no, in response to a post on another thread (where in the spirit of keeping the flaming to a minimum I said I was done posting) I am not out to destroy 911blogger as the person suggested.

my face is a little red now

my face is a little red now actually(from embarrassment not anger). i got an e-mail from blogger this morning and was told that it WASNT the person that we probably both thought it was that voted me down. so while the person who voted down my comments about how Ed is such a brave man etc. is still a petty little coward and wrong, the fact that i lashed out at the wrong person probably was too(though in my defense i didnt say his name). i appreciate the fact that somebody here thinks i show restraint though, so thanks, haha. i honestly do try to keep it civil until somebody disrespects me first. then i have a hard time forgetting, thats my problem. oh, and for anyone else reading this, sorry this conversation is so cryptic,haha.

I think there's more than one person

who does it, and if you follow Col Jenny's logic, there are even miscellaneous trolls who do it.

I think in the year I've been reading your posts you've really developed some patience and tolerance. I remember huge flaming eruptions that you'd get mixed up in and it just doesn't seem like that happens to you nearly as much anymore. ...sniff... I'm so proud of you!

haha, thanks, i try!

haha, thanks, i try! :-)

not appealing?

he's not appealing this verdict? that seems odd. In any case, I don't know that we should trust Bollyn. He has been embroiled in drama after drama, much like Mike Ruppert and a few others, seemingly since the very beginning of the "truth movement". To me this says he was one of the original actors involved in creating the fake truth movement. His role seems to be to play the part of the closet anti-semite so as to have someone to point out as an example of a truther with bad intentions. The fact that he bears a slight resemblance to David Duke might not be a coincidence. Remember, we are meant to think these people are on our side (speaking of the controlled opposition) but in fact it seems just to be a way to define the movement from within. Following their dramas because we think it's a "test case" is more than likely just a trap. One day after you make a lot of noise and tell a lot of people about him there will be some bombshell to come out that will remind you how little you kknew about this person who for some reason you were convinced into defending.

Alex Jones won't talk about him in my opinion because Alex Jones in this whole farce represents a different type from that that Christopher Bollyn is intended to appeal to.... just another day at the reality theatre!

from the fake 9/11 movement

from the fake 9/11 movement central control room:

"so at the point where our man Bollyn needs support the most, our man Real Truther pulls the Fetzer on him."

something like this you mean?

Right, I cannot find a reason

not to trust Bollyn.
The comparison to Rupert makes no sense to me.
And even if he was a (closet)anti-whatever, which he says he is not and which I have no reason not to believe , even then he is entitled to investigate and point out criminal behaviour of people of whatever belief or race as long as they are accused based on facts !
A real anti-whatever would need no facts for being anti-whatever !
Who can tell me btw the why of this so called antisemitism ? What are these people EXACTLY against. And for so long supposedly. Does anybody know ? I think it is deception, the whole argument.
There is (only) hatred towards EVERYBODY who misbehaves.

Just FYI

The more recent article on Bollyn ( mentions that he was convicted of theft and assault in California also, a number of years ago. Now he didn't show up to court and there is a warrant for his arrest. Is this really what the movement needs, people with past criminal convictions and warrants for their arrest? That's probably worse than the fact that he's been a guest on David Duke radio multiple times. David Duke isn't about Zionism, he's about white supremacy, in case anyone wasn't aware. That's white supremacy as in racism, as in black men shouldn't date white women. It gets a lot worse than just being about "Jews."

And according to this page, AFP took in about $20k to 'help' Bollyn . . . quite a take -

"Q: Why did American Free Press collect money for Bollyn's defense and then not give it to him?
A: AFP sent about $5,000 to Bollyn, and returned almost all the remaining $15,000, apart from one contribution from Scotland that they didn't have an address for, according to Mike Piper. (Refer to his January 9, 2007 show, from 34:45.) Piper says that he was arguing that all the money should have been sent to Bollyn, but the rest of the AFP staff were so outraged at Bollyn's Hufschmid-influenced "bizarre behavior", that they made a decision to send the remaining money back."

The cosmic race and Adolf Hitler

sure, it's not about Zionism or Jews we all know it's all about the "Cosmic Race"

Listen to this(only two minutes)

Please find me a qoute from Bollyn that matches that.of Jones

Who supports Alex Jones for saying stuff like that?

We should get rid of the Fuhrer Jones (please listen to the audio)


sounds like Alex Jones had more drinks in one day than Bollyn in a year !
If this is not hate speach then I don't know what is.
But everyone may hate someone for some time for any reason, one must not overreact to these rants.
Let people blow off some steam and it will go over mostly.
You should 't do this on a radioshow though..
And WHY do people keep dismissing the zionist point of view.
People who bring it up are NOT conspiracy theorists. Please look at it, there are enough "building 7's" to discover. Besides it makes more sense for a foreign group to have less scruple for attacking the USA than USA-officials and citizens attacking their own country.
