not your ordinary 'conspiracy theorist'...
By Paul B. Farrell, MarketWatch
ARROYO GRANDE, Calif. (MarketWatch) -- Democracy dead? Lobbyists ruling America? Lobbyists the new "Unseen Hand" of capitalism? Sadly yes.
And here's why: Ask any neuroeconomist, behavioral-finance quant, investment psychologist or other practitioner of the mysterious "science of irrationality" and they'll tell you that Americans have two self-sabotaging mental biases that killed democracy from within: "Denial" and "Magical Thinking" make us easy targets. Our brains are being manipulated by clandestine forces beyond our control. We can't see them or resist.
Yet we refuse to believe in this new Orwellian America. We prefer the world of magic, myth and illusion.
Nice writing in this collegehumor.com satire about Star Wars stormtroopers discussing their version of 911. Suggests cognitive dissonance and mind control. An intelligent and funny scene. Would embed the video if knew how, but here's the link: http://www.collegehumor.com/video:1920944

It is arising now, and it is you.
ABE LINCOLN ON "CONSPIRACY THEORIES"
[from INDISPENSABLE ENEMIES The Politics of Misrule in America
by Walter Karp, page 117]
The IFC Channel (Independent Film Channel) has released a new documentary entitled New World Order. It debuted an April 16th and is being shown on IFC on Demand Channel. I don't receive IFC on Demand so I haven't had a chance to watch it yet, but I look forward to anyone here who does to post a review. I've seen the trailer and it featured Alex Jones and the 911 Truth Movement although these are not the only "conspiracies" it is supposed to cover. Here is the description as found on IFC's website:
By lesage, Saturday 17 2009: After White Phosphorus, Depleted Uranium, and DIME (Dense Inert Metal Explosive) bombs, and successive attacks on Gaza refugees huddled in UN schools; Ihud Olmert, Prime Minister of the the Apartheid State of Israel, today declared a unilateral ceasefire for its air, ground, and naval attack on the captive people of Gaza, declaring "mission accomplished".
Olmert thanked Europe and the USA and other "moderate" states in the region, for the "success" of the massacre. The battle theatre against Iran is now set ready for Obama.
The Israeli war on Gaza, now in its fourth week, provoked worldwide condemnation of Tel Aviv, which has been accused widely of committing war crimes and crimes against humanity.
Gazan resistance and the world condemnation of Israeli crimes against Palestinians -- the native population of the land -- are seen as the primary reasons for Israel backtracking on its previously set goals. Hammas has been considerably strengthened by the attack, just by resisting the onslaught.

"Conspiracism is raising its Medusa’s head again, her lethal visage wreathed with hissing absurdities, immobilizing judgement, melting intellect to pumice." --Alexander Cockburn (ignoring all evidence that is contrary to his irrational biases)
Blather at new heights of cognitive dissonance over at CounterPunch this weekend. Cockburn uses the term "conspiracism", as if that were a real thing, to mock any and all comers, even in a piece about the minutiae of some Wall Street fraud (Bernie Madoff).
But how can he get away with this childish mocking about the JFK assassination, without having to address even one piece of evidence at all?
Here is the entirety of what Cockburn says about "conspiracism" and the JFK assassination in that piece:
UPDATED AND BETTER! 9/11 & NWO: MEANS, MOTIVE, and OPPORTUNITY - Parts I & II
"The Pearl Harbor of the 21st century took place today." President George W. Bush
"It is important for the American People to understand, there are cold blooded killers, who want to come to our homeland, and wreak havoc through death." - George W. Bush
“Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists.” (Applause.) George W. Bush
“The election is over. We won.” (Reporter’s voice - “How do you know that?”) “Its all over but the counting. And we’ll take care of the counting.” - Congressman Peter King
"One of the least understood strategies of the world revolution now moving rapidly toward its goal is the use of mind control as a major means of obtaining the consent of the people who will be subjects of the New World Order." -- K.M. Heaton
"According to some estimates we cannot track $2.3 Trillion in transactions," Rumsfeld admitted, September the 10th, 2001
If all the citizens on earth properly recognize the fact that those in power carry out false flag operations to start wars, which has been repeated over and over again in history that they never teach us at schools, we the people in the world can stop all wars!!
That's the last thing they want us to know.
That's why they send spooks all over the place, giving out misinformation, confuse us, and mislead so-called lefties or activists so that people power will be wasted along with their/our time, energy and resources.
When they cannot BUY, they INFILTRATE.
And the rest will follow meekly without questioning.
That's another thing they TAUGHT us at schools.
Leave 9/11 conspiracy theories for other sites
December 1, 2008 - 4:29pm.
A blog post advocating a conspiracy theory involving the U.S. government in the 9/11 terrorist attacks has been removed.
This web site will not be used, I say again will NOT BE USED to advance such theories.
The topic is off-limits. The decision is final and is not subject to debate.

The administrators at Change.org have deleted the idea for a new investigation into 9/11.
They declared that a new investigation into the attacks – which gave the Bush Administration the power to spy on it's own citizens, to torture, to launch two preventative wars based on lies and more generally to trample all over the Constitution – was "outside the scope" of the site's stated mission and therefore didn't meet their criteria for "specific policy solutions". It doesn't matter how many people want to know the Truth about 9/11, they refuse to have the idea promoted and discussed on their site.
Because of this censorship, the Change.org site has shown that it isn't a "social platform" but, rather, just another gatekeeper of 9/11 Truth.
When the idea was pulled, it was by far the most popular, comfortably occupying the top spot, totaling at least 660 votes (twice the amount of the next best rated idea) only 48 hours after being submitted. On a side note, the other proposed ideas had a 3 week head start, and the 9/11 Truth idea was only just warming up.
Why (pretend to) ask the citizens for ideas then simply delete the most popular? It seems like all of this is more of a joke than a wishful expression for democracy…
Here is the e-mail received by everyone who voted (and to whom we thank for voting):
I just watched your program, “Conspiracy Anyone” on The Agenda, TVO, August 1, 2008.
Thank you for addressing the issue of conspiracy. It seemed that more focus & time was spent theorizing on the mindset of conspiracy paranoia than the details of any of the conspiracies themselves.Two of the four panel experts could not swear by the official theory of the JFK assassination so I assume they suffer from the same conspiracy paranoia which they attribute to the majority. I did not hear them discuss the details of their doubts. If such a malady as “conspiracyitis” could infect the minds of 70+% of the population, it is noteworthy, but the panel was as vague about the science of this psychological phenomenon as they were on any of the conspiracies mentioned. No studies in the area of mass paranoia were cited.
Dick Cheney has a long history of telling lies that kill hundreds of thousands of people.
Video has been submitted to reddit - PLEASE VOTE IT UP - People need to be aware of the historical context surrounding our current situation. Video mentions how 9/11 put Cheney's agenda on the fast track.
Long but excellent . . .

Is There A Dirty Bomb In America’s Future?
by Paul Craig Roberts
Who would be trying to build a secret nuclear weapon or perhaps only a "dirty bomb" that would serve to spread some radiation and massive amounts of fear and hysteria? The public has been carefully prepared to suspect Iran....
March 23, 2008—The investigative journalist Edward Jay Epstein has taken up the Litvinenko case. [The Specter That Haunts the Death of Litvinenko, New York Sun, March 19, 2008]
. . .
There is so much that Americans do not know about secret schemes serving undeclared agendas. Those who have attempted to clue in fellow citizens are invariably frustrated, because Americans have been trained to dismiss the messenger who brings news of "false flag" events as a "conspiracy theorist."
Steve Alten describes a conspiracy, beginning in 2007 and ending in 2012, by a Black Op group in a Republican administration to set off nuclear weapons in two American cities, with planted evidence pointing to Iran.
Dr. Daniele Ganser is a popular swiss historian doing research about 9/11 for several years now. The swiss tv station U1 asked him several questions about the different theories of 9/11. Here is a small translated section of this interview - more from him to come, if wished...
There are some misspellings in the translation as it was done in a rush, but I guess you'll get the point anyway.
No surprise that the complaint was not upheld, The finding is a joke as you would imagine. For example, the BBC’s idea of ‘investigation’ regarding Mayor Willie Brown not flying on 911 is to phone his office and ask if the reports of a tip off were true!
The results are several pages long
RE: Request to Indict President Bush & Vice President Bush
for Criminal Neglect and Failure to Lift Standing Orders to Delay on 9/11
The United States has written laws so that people might know their rights and secure justice through the courts.
The U.S. Constitution requires that all elected officials take an oath promising to uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution.
Violating the Constitution is a crime. Those who violate the Constitution are criminals.
I am writing to you out of concern that constitutional violations occurred on 9/11.
Article 4, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution states:
Every State shall be protected against Invasion; and domestic Violence.
President Bush and Vice President Cheney failed to protect the U.S. against Invasion on 9/11.
When notified of the attack on the World Trade Centers, President Bush neglected to assume his duties as Commander in Chief on 9/11, but instead continued participating in a reading lesson being conducted in a public school classroom in the State of Florida.
U.S. Constitution: Defensive Actions Reserved to States
Article 1, Section 8 states:
"After hearing and reviewing the extensive testimony and evidence, which had never before been tested under oath in a court of law, it took the Memphis jury only one (1) hour to find that a conspiracy to kill Dr. King did exist. Most significantly, this conspiracy involved agents of the governments of the City of Memphis, the state of Tennessee and the United States of America. The overwhelming weight of the evidence also indicated that James Earl Ray was not the triggerman and, in fact, was an unknowing patsy... We stand by that verdict and have no doubt that the truth about this terrible event has finally been revealed." -Statement of King Family on the Justice Department's "Limited investigation" of the MLK Assassination, January 15, 2007

Bhutto, JFK, and Conspiracies
by Jacob G. Hornberger
It is interesting that Justin Raimondo, he of 9-11 Truth dismissal, decided to link to this article!
Why is the mainstream press considering the possibility that Pakistani intelligence agencies were behind the Bhutto killing? According to the Guardian, Pakistan’s intelligence agencies “are widely believed to carry out kidnappings, unlawful detentions and extrajudicial killings. The speed with which the government accused al-Qaida did little to allay fears of state involvement, and conflicting accounts of the cause of death have convinced many of a cover-up.”
Yet, as everyone knows, U.S. intelligence agencies, especially the CIA, have long been involved in the same sort of nefarious activities — kidnappings, torture, coups, murder, and assassinations, even as far back as the Kennedy administration.
Crimes of the State
I hear a lot of nonsense on the Internet -- much disinformation,  plain old vanilla misinformation, and grotesque ignorance up the wazoo.
Ignorance of specific facts and incidents is excusable, but an entirely fraudulent view of modern history?
You can't quite be sure if your fellow travellers have any inkling of their own nation's history, of their own government's substantiated, well-documented, and even admitted-to series of wrongdoings -- crimes, conspiracies.
Thus, you inevitably run into the cult of wild-eyed hyper-emotional flag-wavers who bring along their own lexicon of rude, arrogant and sometimes vulgar slurs. I'm referring to the "conspiradroid," "whack job," "nutcase," "moonbat," variety.
Why do these people seek solace in ignorance? I can understand that the alternative is scary, even terrifying. But hiding your head under the pillow does not make reality just disappear. Sorry, children.
We've written a large article, the result of a year of work: Debunking Conspiracy Myths, which addresses all the platitudes repeated by the media, such as 'conspiracies assume the involvement of a large number of people'. So it dispels virtually all anti 9-11 myths, but it has merit in all other areas of truth-seeking too.
We want to spread this out and make it viral!
Monday, October 1st, 9-11 pm (CST) Telling the Truth Radio Show with Robert Shetterly and Darryl and Emily Bouchard
Americans Who Tell the Truth
Darryl and Emily Bouchard
Listen 9-10 pm (CST) to Questioning War- Organizing Resistance on the WeThePeopleRadioNetwork.com and to our guest in the first hour- Robert Shetterly and from 10-11:00 pm (CST) to our guests in the second hour- Ellen and Darryl Bouchard.
Robert Shetterly is an artist, author, radio show host, and produced a traveling exhibition, and book entitled Americans Who Tell the Truth a collection of portraits & quotes.
Dr. Frank Legge has published an excellent article “Conspiracy Theories, Myths, Skepticism, and 9/11: their Impact on Democracy” in the Journal of 9/11 Studies, today. It passed peer review prior to publication.
It begins thus: “Abstract: A discussion of conspiracy theories, myths and skepticism is presented. The importance of skepticism in a society in which myths may be deliberately created by authorities to manipulate the public is stressed. A range of methods of avoiding acceptance of myths, including application of the scientific method, is demonstrated using the events of 9/11. A clear understanding of events, unclouded by myths, is essential for the proper functioning of a democracy.
Key words: conspiracy, myth, skepticism, 9/11, democracy, propaganda, thermite, trans fats, cholesterol, PNAC, NIST, FEMA, EPA, Orwell
For all of us who see that the official 911 narrative as really just an 'easy-to-swallow' control pill, it may be extremely hard for us to fathom why the designers of such a plan would be so cocky as to have such a detailed and documented account of that horrific day.
Shouldn't these perpetrators be frightened by the clear evidence of demolition in the hundreds of videos available?
Shouldn't these perpetrators be scared the NORAD "failure" (aka stand down) is just too unlikely to be true?
Shouldn't these perpetrators shake in their boots at the overwhelming evidence of conspiracy and complicity?
The short answer is: No. And the short answer to why these perpetrators are not scared is: JFK and American Indifference.

I would advise that many people download this video from Megaupload and reupload it to your own google video account. Also can some of you seed it in the torrents and other means. If anyone wants to cut it up and put it on youtube, feel free.
Also download it to your computer and reupload it if you can. They will soon delete it but they can't delete everyone!
