9/11: The Mother of All Big Lies

“I was listening to the local KQED “public radio” broadcast today and not even one slight HINT or inference that 9/11 was anything but what we’ve been brainwashed and “propaganda-ized” to beLIEve.  It’s encouraging to see so many stories starting to break through the thick walls of controlled media, and public denial and unconsciousness.  One day soon, there will be no way forward for the media, other than to report the TRUTH and the FACTS.  Let people think what they will, but at least…get the facts of all sides, out there.  That will require the factions and cabals be brought down somehow.  It will be a FUN SHOW, no doubt!  There was a time when we who “know” thought we were insane and even doubted our own research…  but there are so many of us that know, have known and are finding out now, that there is comfort in numbers.  I use the public guide as a “consciousness indicator”.  The longer it takes for John Q. Public to wake up, the more extreme and dramatic the new wave of False Flags…  it must be quite a huge power trip to know that you’ve been pulling off the biggest heists and scandals/lies, tragedies, right under the public’s noses…and all you have to do is show a family BBQ and a red, white and blue flag and say, “Got Patriotism?”  
S A D.
“It’s really tragic to hear the drums of war beating AGAIN, now from Obama…  the cabal(s) won’t rest until the planet is completely submerged in controls, death and submission.  That much we can be assured of:  if we do not awaken to what’s happening, the events WILL become larger, more incomprehensible and fear full.” ~ Lance White (and I agree) introducing this article to his readers:

9/11: The Mother of All Big Lies

by Stephen Lendman911

They’re an American tradition. They date from the republic’s inception. Notable ones began in the mid-19th century.

They facilitated annexing Texas. Half of Mexico followed. America became Cuba’s colonial power.

Controlling the Philippines, Guam, Samoa, Hawaii, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Canal Zone, Puerto Rico and other territories followed.

In 1917, Woodrow Wilson manipulated public sentiment. He did so with Big Lies.

They turned most Americans into raging German haters. Big Lies work this way. Wilson got the war he wanted.

FDR manipulated Japan to attack Pearl Harbor. Doing so let him wage war.

He had to convince Congress and a pacifist public to go along.

What better way than by manufacturing terror.

Washington and Seoul conspired against Pyongyang. Numerous 1949/1950 cross-border incursions provoked its June response. Truman got the war he wanted.

War against North Vietnam followed the fake August 1964 Gulf of Tonkin incident. Congress passed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution. Doing so authorized war without declaring it.

Reagan’s 1983 Grenada invasion had nothing to do with rescuing US medical students. It was about replacing leftist New Jewel Movement governance with pro-Western stooge allies.

In December 1989, manufactured incidents precipitated America’s Panama invasion. Former US ally Manuel Noriega was deposed. At issue was forgetting who’s boss.

In August 1990, Washington colluded with Kuwait’s al-Sabah monarchy. Saddam Hussein was entrapped to invade.

In January 1991, the Gulf War followed. Over two decades of sanctions, war, occupation, and destruction of the “cradle of civilization” followed.

It bears repeating. 9/11 is the mother of all Big Lies. Thirteen years of imperial wars followed.

They continue. One country after another is targeted. Ravaging, destroying, colonizing, exploiting and controlling them reflect official US policy.

Homeland wars target Muslims, people of color, Latino immigrants and working Americans.

Award-winning author David Ray Griffin researched 9/11 exhaustively. He did so in 10 books, many articles and lectures. He provided vital evidence too important to ignore.

In April 2006, he discussed “9/11: The Myth and the Reality,” saying:

“It would seem, for many reasons, that the official story of 9/11, which has served as a religious Myth in the intervening years (and still does), is a myth in the pejorative sense of a story that does not correspond to reality.”

In September 2008, Griffin headlined “September 11, 2001: 21 Reasons to Question the Official Story about 9/11.”

The FBI admitted it “ha(d) no hard evidence connecting” 9/11 to bin Laden.

So-called devout Muslim alleged hijackers drank heavily, frequented strip clubs and paid for sex.

Technology in 2001 made cell phone calls made from above 30,000 feet impossible.

The FBI lied claiming Mohamed Atta’s left behind luggage contained “decisive evidence” about Al Qaeda responsibility for the attacks.

Passports allegedly found at United 93′s crash site were fake.

Alleged hijackers weren’t aboard the four fateful flights.

Standing operating intercept procedures weren’t followed.

Then Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta said Dick Cheney “apparently confirmed a stand-down order” prior to an alleged plane striking the Pentagon.

The 9/11 whitewash Commission deleted Mineta’s comment from its official report.

Secret Service agents let Bush remain at a Sarasota, FL school for 30 minutes after learning about the second twin tower strike.

Standard procedure calls for securing his safety immediately in case of potential danger.

Jet fuel doesn’t heat high enough to melt or cause rigid steel columns to crumble.

Doing so is “scientifically impossible.” Controlled demolitions destroyed both towers. Building 7 fell the same way. Griffin explained other Big Lies.

He concluded saying growing numbers of “physicists, chemists, architects, engineers, pilots, former military officers, and former intelligence officers reject the official 9/11 myth.”

In June 2010, he headlined “Did 9/11 Justify the War in Afghanistan?”

Asking is verboten. It’s “off-limits,” said Griffin. It’s “not to be raised in polite company, and certainly not in the mainstream media.”

It’s forbidden “to ask whether the original invasion was justified by the 9/11 attacks.”

No evidence linked them to Afghanistan. Attacking a country posing America no threat is lawless aggression.

War without mercy continues. It does so without Security Council authorization, Griffin explained. Claims otherwise are false.

No moral justification for war exists. Contrary arguments were Big Lies. America decided to invade Afghanistan two months before 9/11, said Griffin.

Reasons for doing so differ from official Big Lies. Invading had nothing to do with “captur(ing) or kill(ing) Osama bin Laden,” Griffin explained.

Or defeating Al Qaeda. Or other nonexistent threats.

It was about advancing America’s imperium. It was to colonize and control a strategic territory.

Afghanistan is a geopolitical prize. At issue is controlling Eurasia’s vast oil, gas and other resources.

It’s controlling the world’s largest opium supply. It floods global markets with heroin.

It provides enormous profits for Wall Street. It gives CIA access to billions of dollars in elicit drug money.

Occupied Afghanistan gives America a strategically located land-based aircraft carrier. It’s part of Washington’s plan to encircle Russia and China with bases.

9/11 was a convenient pretext. It was the mother of all Big Lies. Wars without end followed.

Griffin calls America’s Afghan war “an abomination.” The “official rationale (given) is a lie. We are there for other reasons,” he stressed

No legal or moral justification exists. “The fact that the official story is a lie makes (America’s) war crimes even worse.” They continue daily out of sight and mind.

In his book “Freedom Next Time: Resisting the Empire,” John Pilger called Afghanistan “the grand illusion of the American cause.”

At the same time, “(t)rough all the humanitarian crises in living memory, no country has been abused and suffered more, and none has been helped less, than Afghanistan,” he said.

America’s presence exacerbates horrific conditions. Death, destruction and daily violence persist. They haunt daily life. Human misery is extreme.

Peace, stability and freedom remain distant hopes. Maybe “next time,” says Pilger. For sure no time soon.

Not as long as permanent US occupation continues. America has no plans to leave.

On Thursday, September 11, this writer’s Progressive Radio News Hour features new Consensus 9/11 information.

Elizabeth Woodworth will discuss it. She’ll explain newly discovered truths. “Best evidence” proof is presented. It dispels official Big Lies. Consensus 9/11 is founded on:

“(1) The opinions of respected authorities, based on professional experience, descriptive studies, and reports of expert committees.

(2) Physical data in the form of photographs, videotapes, court testimony, witness reports, and FOIA releases.

(3) Direct rather than circumstantial evidence.”

It’s based on “integrating individual professional expertise with the best available documentary and scientific evidence.”

Doing so is similar to how doctors diagnose illnesses. It’s how forecasts based on best judgments are made.

Revisions based on new evidence are encouraged. Doing so reveals important truths.

No airliner black boxes were found at the World Trade Center site. New evidence refutes the official claim. Woodworth will explain.

Over a three-year period, 24 Consensus 9/11 panel members produced 44 peer-reviewed Big Truths. They refute official Big Lies.

New information keeps surfacing. Consensus 9/11 is dedicated to explaining what everyone needs to know.

For example, 10 so-called Muslim hijackers allegedly broke into the cockpits of four aircraft. Supposedly they commandeered them.

Yet none of the pilots or co-pilots “squawked” the 7500 hijack code. Nor does proof exist to verify numerous other official Big Lies.

9/11 is the mother of all them all. Truth is its mortal enemy. Revealing it is crucially important. Spreading it lets many others know.

Growing numbers of Americans and others worldwide reject the official 9/11 myth.

They do so for good reason. It’s a bald-faced lie. It’s by far the most harmful one in living memory.

Millions of corpses attest to America’s barbarity. The mother of all Big Lies persists. Imperial wars rage without end.

Freedom in America is dying. Obama targets it for elimination altogether. He presides over a ruthless police state apparatus.

No one is free and safe. Big Brother watches everyone. Mass surveillance is official US policy.

So is targeting anyone resisting US authority. Monied interests alone matter. Advancing America’s imperium serves them.

Whistleblowers exposing government crimes are targeted. Dissent is increasingly criminalized.

Constitutional rights are vanishing in plain sight. The Patriot Act alone eliminated fundamental freedoms. Nancy Chang once asked “(w)hat’s so patriotic about trampling on the Bill of Rights?”

The American dream is more myth than reality. George Carlin once said “(y)ou have to be asleep to believe it.”

Obama won’t prosecute CIA torturers. He facilitates Wall Street grand theft. Corporate crooks run America.

War-profiteering is the national pastime. Thirdworldizing America is official policy. So is waging war on humanity.

Habeas protection no longer exists. Or due process and judicial fairness. Anyone can be criminalized for any reason or none at all.

Police states operate this way. Obama is judge, jury and executioner. He usurped diktat power.

He can claim emergency authority to declare martial law, suspend the Constitution for national security reasons, deploy federal and/or National Guard troops on city streets, and suppress whatever he calls disorder.

Included are peaceful protests. At issue is abolishing fundamental First Amendment rights. Without them all others are at risk.

They include free expression, a free press, public assembly, religious freedom, and right to petition government for redress. No longer.

America is unfit to live in. It’s on a fast track to tyranny. It’s perilously close to full-blown.

Perhaps just another 9/11-type False Flag away. The fullness of time will tell.

For the Love of Money

This NY Times article by Sam Polk is the best article I’ve read to date about Wall Street. It begins:

“IN my last year on Wall Street my bonus was $3.6 million — and I was angry because it wasn’t big enough. I was 30 years old, had no children to raise, no debts to pay, no philanthropic goal in mind. I wanted more money for exactly the same reason an alcoholic needs another drink: I was addicted.”

The article goes on to reveal an inside look into perhaps the most pervasive and unchecked addiction in our culture … one with enormous ripple effects but so lauded by so many people that not a single support group exists for it. Yet. Please click here to read this insightful and eventually inspiring article by a former hedge-fund trader and the founder of the nonprofit Groceryships.

For anyone who has any additional questions about what wealth addiction looks like, here’s an article about Larry “pull it” Silverstein, owner of the World Trade Center buildings who conveniently took out huge insurance policies for terror attacks just prior to 9/11, ordered the controlled demolition of the mildly burning Tower 7, collected a cool $5 billion from insurance … and who … twelve years later just as American Airlines emerges from bankruptcy, has decided to sue the airlines whose plane supposedly crashed into his towers, because, you know, $5 billion just isn’t enough.

Must. Have. More.

“Instead of donating even a penny to the 9/11 first responders who were told they would be fine while inhaling toxic substances only to be denied healthcare for their chronic conditions, Silverstein says that he simply hasn’t been relieved of his ‘economic’ loss that suffered after 9/11. Even after receiving around $5 billion from his insurance company following the destruction of the World Trade Center buildings, he says that he needs another $3.5 billion to line his pockets. An additional 3.5 billion that brings the total to 8.5 billion, which airline attorney Roger Podesta says will be 2 1/2 times the fair value of the fallen buildings.”

Can you say, “Junkie?” Details here.

“The U.S. incarcerates more people than any country in the world. …25 percent of prison inmates in the world are locked up in the U.S.,” [source] many for addictions or bogus drug related charges. Just curious when we will begin to see some “time outs” for some of the most damaging addicts on the planet … some of whose institutions also happen to be laundering vast amounts of drug money from CIA drug running.

I wonder how the world will change when these people get off the sauce and start moving through the 12 Steps of Wealth Addiction:

1. We admitted we were powerless over money – that our lives had become unmanageable.

2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.

4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

5. Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

7. Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.

8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.

9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.

11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.

12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to wealth addicts and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

“I wonder” is a very powerful phrase. I wonder when more wealth junkies will take the plunge to the rock bottom that leads to freedom. May it be so.

As with alcoholism, so with wealth addiction:

“Individuals that are involved in peer-groups of the Alcoholic Anonymous 12 steps program don’t think that quitting drinking is easy.

“They believe that it takes a large amount of willingness, a change in attitudes and acts on the alcoholic individual’s part to successfully be able to make a positive change in their life without alcohol.

“This change is achieved through the involvement of four individual phases which can be seen in the list of the 12 steps above. These phases are….

“An admission on the alcoholic individual’s part that they indeed have an addiction to alcohol and need to abstain from alcohol.

Submission of the alcoholic person’s will and life to the power of God or a Higher Authority.

“The act of restitution with individuals that the alcoholic has harmed in any way.

Spreading the message of AA and the 12 steps and principles to achieve each of the above, providing each person with a healthy alcohol-free life and the ability to help others.

“Recovering alcoholics continue to live by the 12 steps in order to stay sober. The reason they continue live these principles is to learn a new healthier, happier and freer way of living, while removing various alcoholic behaviors that may be in their way.” [source]

Addiction is a spiritual disease. When we, as a society, recognize the disease of wealth addiction instead of aspiring to and rewarding it, we can stage our own intervention and begin to heal. Stop waiting for angels and aliens to save us. We need some self-respect and self-responsibility, along with partnering with the Divine:

“God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.”

Change beings with serenity, but it also requires courage and wisdom.

Blessed Be.

Fears and Gifts

“Ultimately, all thoughts are sponsored by love or fear. This is the great polarity. This is the primal duality. Everything, ultimately, breaks down to one of these. All thoughts, ideas, concepts, understandings, decisions, choices, and actions are based in one of these… And, in the end, there is really only one. Love. In truth, love is all there is. Even fear is an outgrowth of love….”
–Neale Donald Walsch “Conversations with God III”

On this potent date of 9/11 (911=”Completion” according to Doreen Virtue), instead of rehashing old lies, old fears and old tragedies, I thought I’d share this morning’s “meditation roulette” from Story Waters’ book, “The Messiah Seed”:

I choose to create space and time in which to experience the gifts of my life.

“Messiah Seed 20
Know Your Fears

“Messiah, know that fears are cages that you have used to limit your Self. As you face each of your fears, so you will go through a continued process of freeing your Self from cages; cages that you previously could not name, but have always felt. Fears are cages within cages, mazes, and must be faced to experience your Godhood in ever expanding ways.

“As you come out of one cage, you will most likely find your Self within another. Realize this to be the encoded baggage of many lifetimes. Know that for each fear that you face and overcome you will reap rewards. With each bond released you will become more and more fulfilled; more and more the God that you are. Celebrate each victory of your spirit. Allow your Self to enjoy the rewards, rather than ploughing into the next challenge before you have had time to rest or to experience the joy of the victory. The rewards of life are not forced upon you. You must pause and focus on them to experience them. To do this is to love your Self. Enjoy the challenges you so love, but also allow space to enjoy the rewards.

“Do not become discouraged by the amount of cages you must free your Self from. To do so is to focus on the destination and to not enjoy the journey. Learning to embrace the journey is essential for joy. The more you love your life, the faster its magic will unfold. As you learn to move with the changes that the resolution of fear brings, so you will lower your resistance to the journey; the resistance that causes you pain. You are here to enjoy this journey and not to suffer through it. The only proof of this is in the living of it.

“The letting go of continuity may feel like you are entering chaos. At such times, center your Self and become the calm eye of the hurricane, knowing that you will not suffer unless you allow your Self to fall into fear. Know that you are the master of your fear and, for this reason you will not fall into fear. You do not have to suffer, no matter what is happening around you. Your fears are illusions and you will come to see through them. Know your fears and they will not be fears, at their root is usually resistance to change. Fear is no more and no less than the unknown.

You are a spark of the Divine! There is no reason to hide your flame. This world needs your Light now more than ever. “The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.” (John 1:5) Teachers, Lightworkers, lovers, healers, those who speak the Truth in Love: thank you. May you expand and shine until every dark corner reveals its inherent peace, security and blessings. Namaste.
