9/11 Truth Has the Power to Unravel Fascism

Numerous prominent gatekeepers have recently said that 9/11 truth is a "distraction", and "takes energy away from working on more important issues". Are they right?

Actually, 9/11 is the core issue, the central knot which holds all of the other tyrannical actions of the last 6 years together. When the central knot of 9/11 lies is pulled, it will cause the entire fascist mess to unravel.

Here's why:

• The administration's false claims linking Iraq and 9/11 helped convince a large portion of the American public to invade Iraq. At the time, the Iraq-911 link was at least as important in many people's minds as the fake WMDs as a reason to invade Iraq.

• The trauma of September 11, 2001 is what galvanized many Americans to rally around the Bush administration, to close ranks in a time of peril, and to give the commander in chief his supposed "mandate" (there was obviously election fraud).

Everything You Need to Know about Disinformation in 2 Minutes

The topic of disinformation is a very complicated one. Essays, lengthy papers and whole treatises have been written on the subject. But the very length of most discussions overwhelms people, so that they never get an accurate picture of what disinformation looks like.

So I thought I'd take a crack at a very simple definition of disinformation, something that is short enough to read in two minutes.

Disinformation is:

* Repeating the same false claims over and over even when people have proven that such claims are contrary to the evidence (for example, the claim that no planes hit the Twin Towers)

* Spending more energy causing in-fighting and disruptions then helping to promote the truth, and causing dedicated activists to waste time rebutting obviously false claims and theories

* Unnecessarily alienating large sections of the population by attacking victims' families, certain religious or ethnic groups, or political parties with no reason

* Calling someone names instead of addressing that person's theories or claimed facts

Wolves in Sheep's Clothing

For generations, the wolves were able to fool the flock by dressing up in sheep's clothing and promising to protect them from the predators.

On 9/11/2001, the wolves got a little cocky, so they got careless. They hadn't washed their costumes, and because they were drunk with power and arrogance at how stupid the sheep were, they only zipped them up part way. So the costumes only covered parts of the wolves ... their wolf faces and the splattered blood of past victims stood out clearly, and it was obvious to any sheep with eyes to see that those strange creatures telling them "we'll protect you from the wolves" were not really sheep.

Did the sheep realize that these strange animals were predators -- who had only exploitation of the sheep in mind? Or did they just go along with the wolves' game, even though this time it was obvious that things did not add up?

False Flags, Real Deaths, Big Mistakes

The views expressed herein -- like all of the blog posts -- are solely those of the author, and not necessarily those of

This is also a first attempt at brainstorming on how to reach the people who are consciously covering up the truth about 9/11. My guesses about motivation are subject to change, and people who have knowledge in this area are welcome to correct my mistakes

Not all of the people who carried out 9/11 and other false flag attacks are hit men who did it for the money. And not all of the people who ordered those attacks did so for the oil and defense industry profits that were justified by 9/11 (what Steven Jones calls "the 9/11 Wars" - the war against the Middle East which 9/11 provided an excuse for).

9-11 Truth the After-Shock.

Though in her short film "The Shock Doctrine" Naomi Klien shows 9-11 as a shock and therefore an "opportunity" (as Bush called it at 11AM on Sept 11th 2001) for the PNAC manifesto to be realised. There is however a second shock associated with 9-11 a delayed shock or an after shock.
The shock of Truth.

As the whole planet experienced the initial shock on 9-11
The myths were told by the News Management teams creating Zelikows' "reality" dreamt up in his schizophrenic "parallel universe":

"They hate our freedoms" "It's a clash of civilisations" "it's blow-back for our foreign policy" "19 men and a dead man's box(cutter)".
and, through these myths, we thought we understood the event in the context of our own world view,

America is Dead: Long Live America!

"The king is dead. Long live the king!"
- Announced every time a British king died, and as a way to welcome the new king.

While I strongly believe in keeping hope alive no matter how dire the situation, I also understand that pretending things can improve when they can't is a recipe for disaster.

If you don't discover that your house has mold, you can't fix it and make it healthy. If your doctor doesn't tell the patient he has cancer, the patient has no chance of getting better.

Albert Einstein said "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." If we do the same thing over and over, and it hasn't worked, we should wake up and acknowledge it isn't working. Otherwise, we cannot fix it.

Framing 9/11

As everyone from Frank Luntz (a conservative pollster) to George Lakoff (a liberal linguist) have shown, political debates are usually won by those who most successfully "frame" the issue in their terms.

One of the ways that the manipulators of public opinion frame issues is to smear by association. For example, in recent fake "Bin Laden" videos, Bin Laden endorses whatever the Neocons are most against at the time. Right now, the Neocons are trying to prop up Pakistani president Musharraf, so they released a new tape of"Bin Laden" urging Muslims to overthrow Musharaf.

Why? Because if Bin Laden says Musharraf has to go, millions of Americans -- in a knee-jerk reaction -- will become convinced that Musharraf must be a good guy who the U.S. should support and protect.

Real Men Stand Up to Fascists

The fascists' view of masculinity is that -- to be a real American man -- you have to rally around the "strong leader", you have to talk tough about the "war on terror", you have to get pleasure out of watching "our team" (the sole superpower) beat the stuffing out of a bunch of third-rate armies like Iraq and Afghanistan.

Are they right? Well, psychologists tell us that rallying around the authoritarian leader is actually a very infantile way to affirm one's masculinity.

Okay, listen up guys. Real men don't bluster like George W. Bush or Bill O'Reilly. Real men stand up to fascists.

Our forefathers stood up to the British king and fought for our freedom. Our forefathers stood up to tyrants and won their liberty and freedom.

Democrats Fiddle While Iraq Burns

Of course, actually investigating 9/11 and bringing the perpetrators to justice would be the best way to pull the rug out from under the whole fiasco.

Instead of actually ending the Iraq war, many Democrats today joined Republicans in fiddling around, wasting time and blowing hot air about an advertisement about the war.

And instead of rallying around a bill that would have cut off funding for the war, 20 Democrats voted against it. In response, "Senate Democrats defiantly charged ahead Thursday . . . armed with the mantra that Republicans, along with President Bush, now own the war."

Were Gandhi, King and Mandela Wrong?

The non-violent means we have so far used to save our Constitution, stop the imposition of a martial law state, and stop World War III seem to have failed*. The neocons are gearing up for an attack on Iran, we're not getting out of Iraq any time soon, people are getting beat up and arrested for exercising their Constitutional rights, the continuity of government plans and Reichstag laws have all been finalized, and the madmen could carry out another false flag attack at any time.

Indeed, some have argued that non-violence by itself and without the threat of violence has never worked, and claimed that those who think that the non-violent resistance of Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr. or Nelson Mandela was the decisive factor in their victories are ignorant. Others argue that this is misreading history.

Hope Is An Act of Will

Several long-time activists have told me recently they are overwhelmed, worried, and think that we may be losing the struggle to end the imperial wars, save our Constitution, and stop false flag terrorism.

One very smart friend asked me if there is any basis for hope.

But hope is an act of will, not a passive mood. Admittedly, things are easier when circumstances bring hope to us, and we can just receive the hopeful and inspiring news.

But if we care about winning, we have to be able to decide to have hope even when outer circumstances aren't so positive.

We're Winning the Battle for 9/11 Truth

A new poll by reputable pollster Zogby International shows that 51% of Americans want Congress to probe Bush and Cheney regarding 9/11, and 67% fault the 9/11 Commission for failing to investigate the collapse of World Trade Center 7. The poll was sponsored by

Despite its efforts to intimidate and harass, and despite its huge investment in propaganda, the government is losing its effort to cover up the 9/11 false flag.

Do Justice

Updated to add a section on Romans 13, which I've bolded here.

If you are Christian or Jewish, the importance of the Bible may be obvious to you.

If you are not, please note that 85% of the American population identifies itself as Christian, and millions more identify themselves as Jewish. Therefore, if you are trying to reach Americans with 9/11 truth, it might help to know a little about the Bible. If you can quote scripture, you may more easily reach people who might not otherwise listen.

9/11 Is a Religious Issue

As prominent former professor of theology David Ray Griffin has pointed out:

How Can You NOT Get It?

Many timid writers and commentators are finally waking up to the fact that the powers-that-be are whipping up fear of the enemy in order to justify their imperial wars of aggression and a consolidation of power at home.

For example, liberal website Buzzflash is today running as its main story an editorial comparing Bush and company to the Nazis, and discussing how the Nazis bullied the legislature into passing the enabling act after the Reichstag fire.

But they're missing the most important piece of the puzzle: the Nazis themselves lit the Reichstag fire and blamed it on others (if you have trouble playing the clip, it is because the website hosting the clip requires you to download the clip before playing it). The fire was the event which justified Hitler's seizure of power and suspension of liberties.
