Obama and media use bin Laden’s ‘death’ to further 9/11 lie

May 2, 2011

By Craig McKee

Buried at sea? I can’t believe people are buying this.

Around the world, misled individuals are celebrating the death of the man blamed for the 9/11 false-flag operation. Many are even thinking it will make a difference to the war on terror. It won’t, of course, because that phantom war will continue until it isn’t needed anymore by the global elite. And that won’t happen until another phony enemy is in place.

My optimistic side hopes that this lie is so obvious that even those who bought the idea that 9/11 was a terrorist attack might see through it. But that isn’t guaranteed, especially with all the major media in America marching in lockstep.

We’ve seen how the U.S. government turned 9/11 into two wars and an all-out assault on the (more…)

Moyers’ ill-informed attacks on 9/11 truth are typical of mainstream left

Moyers says 9/11 truthers are propagating a “big lie.”

By Craig McKee

Over the past two or three decades, I have admired certain prominent members of the American political left: Noam Chomsky, Ralph Nader, and Gore Vidal among them. More “popular” journalistic voices like Michael Moore and Phil Donahue have also been in my good books for their progressive stances on various issues.

But since I’ve become more involved in questioning the official story of 9/11, my perspective about who really wields power and who is standing up for the truth in a meaningful way has radically changed.

As recently as 2008 when Barack Obama was elected, I viewed the victory of a Democratic candidate for president over a Republican as a victory for the good guys (not that I didn’t see the flaws in the Democrats, don’t get me wrong). I’ve come to realize, (more…)

Fix is in: Bush cousin presides over Cheney, Rumsfeld, Myers lawsuit

By Craig McKee

No, it’s not a joke.

A 9/11 lawsuit against former high officials in the Bush White House is being presided over by a cousin of former president George W. Bush – a shocking and blatant conflict of interest that should embarrass even believers in the official story.

Walker will decide if case goes forward.

George W. Bush’s cousin, Judge John M. Walker of the 2nd Circuit of the United States Court of Appeals, is part of a three-judge panel hearing the case of April Gallop vs. former vice-president Dick Cheney, former defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld and former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Richard Myers.

The case has been ignored by the mainstream media in the weeks leading up to it going to court April 5. And most media have ignored the developments concerning the involvement of Judge Walker. One exception is CNBC, which carried (more…)

Re-evaluating Michael Moore: his disappointing take on 9/11

By Craig McKee

From the first time I saw Roger and Me, I was hooked. Michael Moore was more than a breath of fresh air, he was a rare voice who found a way to get really progressive ideas into the mainstream in a big way. No small feat.

I never cared about criticisms from the right that his films sometimes let accuracy take a back seat to entertainment value. Those people were going to trash him no matter what. Everything they said about him just confirmed their own ignorance.

But even though my disgust for the right in America remains undiminished, a sense of disillusionment with Moore’s views has crept in to my thinking. As I began researching the events of Sept. 11, 2001 in more depth, his views about terror and terrorism began to be problematic. Worse, they began to seem like (more…)

Failed fascist coup in America led to strategy change for corporate elite

 

 

“A clique of U.S. industrialist is hell bent to bring a fascist state to supplant our democratic government and is working closely with the fascist regime in Germany and Italy. I have had plenty of opportunity in my post in Berlin to witness how close some of our American ruling families are to the Nazi regime.” – William Dodd, U.S. ambassador to Germany, in a letter to Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1936.

By Craig McKee

If you saw it in a movie, you’d think it was far-fetched. But it happened.

Most Americans have no idea how close they came to living under a Nazi-style dictatorship prior to World War II. But a group that can be fairly called the “who’s who” of 1930s corporate establishment tried to violently overthrow the U.S. government (more…)

Fear, deception and power: how we happily relinquish our freedoms

By Craig McKee

We’re being played like a fine musical instrument.

We often don’t know it, and we don’t want to know it. The truth about how we’re being controlled and manipulated is harsh and unpleasant to contemplate. Instead of accepting it, we prefer to reinforce the illusion of our own freedom.

With shocking events like 9/11, the Kennedy assassination, and numerous apparent acts of international terrorism, we are “traumatized” into willingly transferring what little power we have left to a small but powerful elite that has its own agenda. And the process is accelerating.

Imprisonment without trial, wiretaps without warrants, video surveillance, efforts to control and restrict the Internet, torturing of detainees, monitoring of private emails, and the innovation of airport “body” scanners, are all part of the increasing consolidation of control. And it’s all under the guise of “security.” (more…)

‘Box cutter’ nuts and their wild theories: a gem of 9/11 satire

I came across this wickedly dry bit of conspiracy analysis from 2003 recently and really enjoyed it. Since the author offered it freely for reproduction (with credit given) I thought it would be worth including in this blog. Sadly, the author passed away from cancer earlier this year. He was just 51.

His piece goes to show that when the government and media offer an explanation of an event like 9/11, their story is never looked at as a theory. But it’s worth turning the tables occasionally – Craig McKee

Debunking conspiracy theorists: Paranoid fantasies about Sept. 11 distract from the real issues

By Gerard Holmgren (Copyright Gerard Holmgren, Jan. 9, 2003)

Astute observers of history are aware that for every notable event there will ususally be at least one ,often several wild conspiracy theories which spring up around it. “The CIA killed Hendrix” ” The Pope had John Lennon murdered “, “Hitler was half Werewolf”, “Space aliens replaced Nixon with a clone” etc,etc. The bigger the event, the more ridiculous and more numerous are the fanciful rantings which circulate in relation to it.

So it’s hardly surprising that the events of Sept 11 2001 have spawned their fair share of these ludicrous fairy tales. And as always, there is – sadly – a small but (more…)

Both the U.S. and Canada must share the shame of the Omar Khadr case

Khadr pleads with Canadian interrogators in Guantanamo Bay to help him, says he was tortured by Americans.

October 22, 2010

By Craig McKee

Few things make me angry faster than talking about the case of Omar Khadr.

In the irrational aftermath of 9/11, freedom, due process, and the rule of law were casualties of a phony war on terror. While the real terrorists occupied seats of power in Washington, individual freedoms were discarded. And this happened while the American public was still traumatized by the unprecedented “terrorist” attacks.

So they could appear to be doing something about 9/11, the U.S. government rushed to apprehend hundreds of terror suspects from around the world. Just nine months after the destruction of the World Trade Center, a 15-year-old Canadian boy named Omar Khadr was arrested and blamed for the death of an American serviceman in Afghanistan. He remains the only Western inmate left in Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba.

The fact that Khadr is now discussing a deal that would have him plead guilty to murder is sickening. (more…)

Who’s in charge? The unlikely travels of George Bush on 9/11

October 20, 2010

By Craig McKee

So we know that before 10 a.m. on Sept. 11, 2001, President George W. Bush behaved very suspiciously. He remained in a Florida classroom reading with students while disaster unfolded.

We know the Secret Service did not take steps to protect the president during the most catastrophic attack ever on American soil. He stayed at the school against all protocol, and no one made any effort to get him out of there. He might have been a terrorist target but he just sat there, endangering an entire school full of children.

We know that Chief of Staff Andrew Card told Bush that America was under attack while he sat with the children, but didn’t say any more and didn’t wait for any response from Bush.

And Bush made no move to say anything to anyone. No instructions, no questions. He didn’t (more…)
