Facebook Terrorism? Ex-Marine arrested, 9-11 conspiracy posts ruled ‘terrorist in nature’

08/23/2012 UPDATE: HOPEWELL, VA (WWBT)  – A Chesterfield Marine will be released from a mental health facility after a judge ruled there wasn’t sufficient evidence of allegations made against him….

In court Thursday, the judge said that the petition was blank and didn’t list a single allegation against him. The judge said Raub suffered a “deprivation of his liberty” by being held without a clear claim.

The FBI, Secret Service and the Chesterfield Police ‘swarmed’ Brandon Raub, a former U.S. Marine and decorated veteran, before Raub was allegedly arrested and taken to a psychiatric hospital. After posting on Facebook he has been locked up as a threat to US Interests. Raub believes 9/11 was an inside job and wrote about the coming ‘Revolution.’ An FBI agent reportedly claimed, ‘The threats that he was making were terrorist in nature.’

By Ms. Smith via http://m.networkworld.com on Sun, 08/19/12 – 2:18pm.

There are conspiracy theorists who believe 9/11 was an inside job. I don’t really follow that news, but can people be arrested after saying so online, exercising their First Amendment right to Freedom of Speech? On August 16, the FBI, Secret Service and the Chesterfield Police arrested a decorated former U.S. Marine for “airing his critical views of the U.S. government on Facebook.” Is there such a thing as Facebook terrorism?

(See Raub’s posts on Facebook or click here to see larger.) According to Salem-News, an FBI agent claimed, “The threats that he was making were terrorist in nature.”Brandon Raub is a decorated Iraq and Afghanistan War Vet

The Jeenyus Corner noted, “Brandon Raub is a former U.S. Marine, decorated combat veteran, and he founded the Richmond Liberty Movement, based in Virginia. Brandon was arrested by government officials last night over some ‘terroristic’ posts he made on Facebook. To be clear, he was arrested for speaking his mind about his opinions, which is supposed to be a constitutional right in our country. He is currently being ‘held’ at John Randolph Psychiatric hospital in Hopewell VA.” The site republished Raub’s ‘The Truth’ articlefrom November 2011 which began with “America has lost itself. We have lost who we truly are. This is the land of the free and the home of the brave.”

On Facebook, Raub talked about the Illuminati, a shadow organization in which “some of the leaders were involved with the bombing of the twin towers” and the “great amount of evil perpetrated by the American Government.” He said people may think he was going crazy, but a “civil war,” the “Revolution” is coming. “I’m starting the Revolution. I’m done waiting.” On July 24, he said he was at a “great crossroads. As if a storm of destiny is about to pick me up and take me to fight a great battle.” On August 9 he talked about severing heads and told the generals he was coming for them. On August 13, he wrote, “Sharpen up my axe; I’m here to sever heads.” On August 14, Raub wrote, “The Revolution will come for me. Men will be at my door soon to pick me up to lead it.” On August 15, Raub wrote, “And they will say he said it to the NSA first.” To know all that was said, please read it for yourselfhere or on Facebook.

In this video, Raub’s mother says the authorities showed up “in a swarm” to arrest him before taking him to John Randolph Psychiatric Hospital. She said her son does not suffer from PTSD. Raub allegedly was arrested by Chesterfield Police after he “assaulted an officer and resisted arrest,” but “Chesterfield PD said Raub has not been charged with resisting arrest and assaulting an officer.” Here are links to many more videos regarding Raub. There are five articles written by Raub that were published on Don’t Tread on Me. Here, DeathRattleSports asked whether Raub was the NDAA‘s first victim.

Many times in the past, we’ve looked at ridiculous FBI or DHS you-might-be-a-domestic-terrorist-if lists which seem to indicate that otherwise innocent acts may flag you as potentially suspicious. Sadly, our nation’s veterans are potentially suspicious, according to some of these lists. To me, a terrorist is someone or a group who inflicts terror and is actually out to hurt us, the USA’s citizens or our critical infrastructure; terrorists who plot evil with intentions of killing people, blowing up or otherwise destroying things. However, I recently read about the Global Terrorism Database, which is “an open-source database with information on more than 98,000 terrorist attacks and terrorist events around the world from 1970 through 2010.” START is “tasked by the Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate” and defines terrorism as “the threatened or actual use of illegal force and violence by a non-state actor to attain a political, economic, religious, or social goal through fear, coercion, or intimidation.”

To better understand this, it’s important to look at “Profiles of Perpetrators of Terrorism in the United States (PPT-US) Codebook” as well as “Hot Spots of Terrorism and Other Crimes in the United States, 1970 to 2008” [PDF] by START (Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism). The report lists the categories of ideological motivation in terrorism as:

Extreme Right-Wing: groups that believe that one’s personal and/or national “way of life” is under attack and is either already lost or that the threat is imminent (for some the threat is from a specific ethnic, racial, or religious group), and believe in the need to be prepared for an attack either by participating in paramilitary preparations and training or survivalism. Groups may also be fiercely nationalistic (as opposed to universal and international in orientation), anti-global, suspicious of centralized federal authority, reverent of individual liberty, and believe in conspiracy theories that involve grave threat to national sovereignty and/or personal liberty.

Extreme Left-Wing: groups that want to bring about change through violent revolution rather than through established political processes. This category also includes secular left-wing groups that rely heavily on terrorism to overthrow the capitalist system and either establish “a dictatorship of the proletariat” (Marxist-Leninists) or, much more rarely, a decentralized, non-hierarchical political system (anarchists).

Religious: groups that seek to smite the purported enemies of God and other evildoers, impose strict religious tenets or laws on society (fundamentalists), forcibly insert religion into the political sphere (e.g., those who seek to politicize religion, such as Christian Reconstructionists and Islamists), and/or bring about Armageddon (apocalyptic millenarian cults; 2010: 17). For example, Jewish Direct Action, Mormon extremist, Jamaat-al-Fuqra, and Covenant, Sword and the Arm of the Lord (CSA) are included in this category.

Ethno-Nationalist/Separatist: regionally concentrated groups with a history of organized political autonomy with their own state, traditional ruler, or regional government, who are committed to gaining or regaining political independence through any means and who have supported political movements for autonomy at some time since 1945.

Single Issue: groups or individuals that obsessively focus on very specific or narrowly-defined causes (e.g., anti-abortion, anti-Catholic, anti-nuclear, anti-Castro). This category includes groups from all sides of the political spectrum.

However, please note that the latest START report [PDF] from July states, “To be clear, the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START) does not classify individuals as terrorists or extremists based on ideological perspectives.” And “at no point has any START study defined persons ‘suspicious of centralized federal authority’ and ‘reverent of individual liberty’ as terrorists. Instead, we assigned ideological classifications only to groups that have already carried out completed or attempted terrorist attacks.”

If there were ever such a “revolution,” such as Raub supported, that caused riots like were seen in London, Public Intelligence previously posted the U.S. military’s plans for the “use of deadly force, detention and interrogation of U.S. Civilians” and alleged military plans to squash civil unrest in the USA. It might also be a good time to recall Social Media Monitoring on Gov’t Steroids: Anything might come back to bite you or the list of hot keywords monitored by DHS. Things are still unfolding in regards to Raub, but it is alarming if his constitutional right to free speech, his right to talk conspiracy theory smack, is considered potential terrorism.

Major General: Why Are Domestic Government Agencies Purchashing Enough Lethal Ammunition to Put 5 Rounds In Every American?

Preface: There might be an innocent explanation. But given recent trends, this is worrisome.

via http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2012/08/major-general-why-have-government-agencies-recently-purchased-enough-specialized-for-killing-ammunition-to-put-5-rounds-in-every-american.html

Retired Major General Jerry Curry wrote Friday:

The Social Security Administration (SSA) confirms that it is purchasing 174 thousand rounds of hollow point bullets to be delivered to 41 locations in major cities across the U.S.

***

Those against whom the hollow point bullets are to be used — those causing the civil unrest — must be American citizens; since the SSA has never been used overseas to help foreign countries maintain control of their citizens.

What would be the target of these 174, 000 rounds of hollow point bullets? It can’t simply be to control demonstrators or rioters. Hollow point bullets are so lethal that the Geneva Convention does not allow their use on the battle field in time of war. Hollow point bullets don’t just stop or hurt people, they penetrate the body, spread out, fragment and cause maximum damage to the body’s organs. Death often follows.

Potentially each hollow nose bullet represents a dead American. If so, why would the U.S. government want the SSA to kill 174,000 of our citizens, even during a time of civil unrest?

***

If this were only a one time order of ammunition, it could easily be dismissed. But there is a pattern here. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has ordered 46,000 rounds of hollow point ammunition. Notice that all of these purchases are for the lethal hollow nose bullets.  These bullets are not being purchased and stored for squirrel or coyote hunting. This is serious ammunition manufactured to be used for serious purposes.

In the war in Iraq, our military forces expended approximately 70 million rounds per year. In March DHS ordered 750 million rounds of hollow point ammunition. It then turned around and ordered an additional 750 million rounds of miscellaneous bullets including some that are capable of penetrating walls. This is enough ammunition to empty five rounds into the body of every living American citizen. Is this something we and the Congress should be concerned about? What’s the plan that requires so many dead Americans, even during times of civil unrest? Has Congress and the Administration vetted the plan in public.

***

All of these rounds of ammunition can only be used to kill American citizens, though there is enough ammunition being ordered to kill, in addition to every American citizen, also every Iranian, Syrian or Mexican. There is simply too much of it. And this much ammunition can’t be just for training, there aren’t that many weapons and “shooters” in the U.S. to fire it.

***

We have enough military forces to maintain law and order in the U.S. even during times of civil unrest.

***

This is a deadly serious business. I hope I’m wrong, but something smells rotten. And If the Congress isn’t going to do its duty and investigate this matter fully, the military will have to protect the Constitution, the nation, and our citizens.

Why are government agencies doing this?

Major General Curry asks a troubling questions:

We have local police, backed up by each state’s National Guard, backed up by the Department of Defense. So in addition to all these forces why does DHS need its own private army? Why do the SSA, NOAA and other government agencies need to create their own civilian security forces armed with hollow nose bullets?

This may sound like a conspiracy theory …

But remember that Senator Daniel Inouye said in 1987:

There exists a shadowy Government with its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own fundraising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself.

The Federal Reserve – which is not exactly federal (and see this)- also has its own police force.  See this andthis.

Chalmers Johnson called the CIA the President’s private army.

And that’s nothing compared to JSOC.  As John Glaser wrote in February:

For the past decade, we’ve seen the rise of a secret, unaccountable U.S. military force … Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) is an unwieldy private army at the command of the President, and him only. And they conduct military and spy missions all over the world, never receiving formal congressional approval ….

“Without the knowledge of the American public,” wrote Nick Turse back in August, “a secret force within the U.S. military is undertaking operations in a majority of the world’s countries. This new Pentagon power elite is waging a global war whose size and scope has never been revealed.” According to a recent Congressional Research Service report, JSOC forces “reportedly conduct highly sensitive combat and supporting operations against terrorists on a world-wide basis.” As the New York Times this week reported:

The Special Operations Command now numbers just under 66,000 people — including both military personnel and Defense Department civilians — a doubling since 2001. Its budget has reached $10.5 billion, up from $4.2 billion in 2001 (after adjusting for inflation).Over the past decade, Special Operations Command personnel have been deployed for combat operations, exercises, training and other liaison missions in more than 70 countries. Since the invasion of Iraq in 2003, Special Operations Command sustained overseas deployments of more than 12,000 troops a day, with four-fifths committed to the broader Middle East.

JSOC operates outside the confines of the traditional military and even beyond what the CIA is able to do.

***

But it goes well beyond the war zones. In concert with the Executive’s new claims on extra-judicial assassinations via drone strikes, even if the target is an American citizen, JSOC goes around the world murdering suspects without the oversight of a judge or, god forbid, granting those unfortunate souls the right to defend themselves in court against secret, evidence-less government decrees about their guilt. As Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Seymour Hersh said at a speaking event in 2009:

Congress has no oversight of it. It’s an executive assassination ring essentially, and it’s been going on and on and on.***

Under President Bush’s authority, they’ve been going into countries, not talking to the ambassador or the CIA station chief, and finding people on a list and executing them and leaving. That’s been going on, in the name of all of us….

[Marc Ambinder told Wired]:

There are legal restrictions on what the CIA can do in terms of covert operations. There has to be a finding, the president has to notify at least the “Gang of Eight” [leaders of the intelligence oversight committees] in Congress. JSOC doesn’t have to do any of that. There is very little accountability for their actions. What’s weird is that many in congress who’d be very sensitive to CIA operations almost treat JSOC as an entity that doesn’t have to submit to oversight. It’s almost like this is the president’s private army, we’ll let the president do what he needs to do.

An End-Run Around the Constitution?

Remember, we’ve gone from a nation of laws to a nation of powerful men making laws in secret.  A nation where Congressional leaders themselves    aren’t even allow to see the laws, or to learn about covert programs. A nation where Congressmen are threatened with martial law if they don’t approve radical programs.

National security powers are being used to help big business, to the detriment of the American people.

Veterans returning from the front lines are labeled “potential terrorists”, to the horror of both theRepublican and Democratic leadership.

This is not surprising, given that tyrannical regimes always crumble when the footsoldiers refuse to carry out draconian measures.

Indeed, active duty military personnel are big Ron Paul supporters.  And see this.  Because liking Ron Paul – as well as liking liberty or the Founding Fathers – may get one branded as a potential terrorist these days, there may be some friction between active military folks and the government as well.

We’ve been in a continuous state of National Emergency for 11 years.  The Constitution has so thoroughly been shredded that it – literally – unclear whether we are still living in a constitutional form of government.

Because military folks are sworn to defend the Constitution, many still would not allow the imposition of overt, full-scale fascism without a fight.  See this and this.

As such, Major General Curry’s speculation is chilling, indeed:

Is the purpose [of the lethal ammunition purchases] to kill 174,000 of the nation’s military and replace them with Department of Homeland Security (DHS) special security forces, forces loyal to the Administration, not to the Constitution?

10 Most Profitable U.S. Companies Paid 9% in Federal Income Taxes.

Source: All Gov.

The largest corporations in the U.S., consisting of oil, retail, banking and technology giants, paid an average of only 9% of their earnings in income taxes to the Internal Revenue Servicelast year.
According to the tax code, companies are supposed to pay 35% income tax. But NerdWalletdetermined that the top 10 came nowhere near that.
Exxon Mobil, the country’s biggest business, made more than $73 billion in 2011, but paid only $1.5 billion to the IRS.
The second largest company, Chevron, paid $1.9 billion in taxes after collecting $47.6 billion in revenue.
No. 3 on the list, Apple, made $34.2 billion. It paid $3.9 billion to the IRS.
These were followed by:
Microsoft (made $28 billion, paid $3.1 billion)
JPMorgan Chase (made $26.7 billion, paid $3.7 billion)
Walmart (made $24.4 billion, paid $4.6 billion)
Wells Fargo (made $23.7 billion, paid $3.4 billion)

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) captured this image of an M-class flare on August 17, 2012, at 9:01 PM EDT. The flare, seen on the left (or east) side of the sun from an active region that has not yet been named, and is just rotating into view. The image is colorized in teal, which is typical for showing light in the 131 Angstrom wavelength — a wavelength particularly good for viewing solar flares. Credit: NASA/SDO 

On August 17, the sun emitted a mid-level flare, peaking at 9:02 PM EDT. Solar flares are gigantic bursts of radiation that cannot pass through Earth’s atmosphere to harm humans on the ground, however when strong enough they can disrupt GPS and communications signals.

The flare is classified as an M5.6 class flare. M-class flares can cause brief radio blackouts at the poles and minor radiation storms that might endanger astronauts.

Army: “OPSEC” Political Group Violating OPSEC Protocols : Spin spin spin

…by  Gordon Duff, Senior Editor VeteransToday.com

A group calling themselves “OPSEC” has accused President Obama of violating “operational security” tied to the theoretical operation involving the claimed murder of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan. 

This week, we learned that top Pentagon officials are shocked at some of the information being leaked by the “OPSEC” group, their claim that security clearances of some have been violated and that others are blatantly lying.

A senior Army official, off the record is quoted:

Operational Security

“Duff, the generals are pissed as hell about this.  They are claiming they are “OPSEC” but they don’t know the first thing about it.  They are actually giving out names, asking for donations, violating every tenet of special operations groups. 

Also, they are claiming to be Special Forces without proof.  Now I see them backing off from that. 

I have my own questions about operations, which, because of OPSEC I am unable to discuss in detail but they have nothing to do with the wild fabrications and political grandstanding this group is doing.”

According to Military.com, the group now claims to be “CIA” and “special forces.”  Note the small “s” and “f” in “special” and “forces.”  Of course, there is NO list of CIA agents, nor is there such a thing as “special forces.”  Here is the quote:

“A group of former CIA spies and U.S. special forces troops on Tuesday launched a political attack on President Barack Obama.”

Last time someone called Special Forces “troops” they ended up looking for their teeth.  As for the CIA claim, that one has me rolling on the floor.  Next thing I expect is for them to say they represent the “Union of Fairies and Leprechauns.”

I have political issues with Romney and, frankly all of Washington.  Election after election, we live in a “least of evils” world though more and more suspect Obama may actually intend well but has been constrained by the massive influx of corporate cash flowing into Washington to defeat his economic initiatives.

Washington, under the Supreme Court’s Citizen’s United ruling, has become the whorehouse of all time.  Wall Street has been joined by the drug cartels and has bought everything that moves in Washington, starting with Romney, the puppet of Sheldon Adelson.

Now we have another “swift boat” group, claiming to be “special forces” and asking for cash.

In doing so, they are openly attacking, not only the Commander in Chief but the leadership of the military and intelligence services while taking money from gambling and drug interests.

My first point is that they are not entirely wrong, bin Laden died in 2001.  Another point is that the Delta Force stories told about bin Laden and his Tora Bora fleet of white GMC Yukons was predicated on the lies told byRumsfeld.

Rummy claimed “Al Kayduh” had massive bases all over Afghanistan, huge underground “fortresses.”  This was an outrageous lie, nothing has been found in 12 years.

Here, watch where the story began and why the phony “Delta Force” make up the Tora Bora fairy tale…all the vehicles parked in huge underground bases that never existed:

The Magic “bin Laden” Underground Parking Lot…Never Found


YouTube – Veterans Today –

This is where the wild story of bin Laden began, all his vehicles parked in Rumsfeld‘s imaginary bases, the whole thing a total lie.  Bin Laden died at Tora Bora, while still “on the books” of the CIA, kidney failure, no portable dialysis machine recovered, no underground base, no monorails or bad guys in powder blue jump suits.

Time enough has passed, here is a piece of OPSEC that every member of US special ops unit knows:

There had been no word from Osama bin Laden since December 2001 and that the numerous videos and audio tapes were all counterfeit, adequate proof to anyone that the war in Afghanistan was being fought illegally. 

However, releasing that fact would be what a free and independent patriot would do, not the act of a strutting paid “parrot.”  Please check for actual public confirmations from both Secretary of Defense Gates and CIA Director Panetta. 

Rumsfeld had grown up on James Bond movies and bin Laden, the CIA asset, was sold to America as “AuricGoldfinger” or “Doctor Evil.”

Because of “compartmentalized security,” none of those claiming to be “OPSEC” would or could understand what the truth is.  It certainly has nothing to do with their claims.  I have my own questions and have decades more experience.

There are things wrong, the idea of murdering a valuable intelligence asset, even though he had been dead for ten years. Then there is the imaginary burial at sea claimed based on non existent Muslim traditions.  More childish lies.

Then 38 SEALS packed like sardines into a National Guard CH-47, a violation of every protocol, gets shot down?

That one doesn’t fly.  They were going to rescue Rangers?  Rangers rescue Rangers.  Even as a Marine, we know that Rangers, on the ground, are an easy match for SEALS or anyone else.  None of this story holds water and if Obama or someone is to be questioned, question people about real problems, not the ones Sheldon Adelson the gambling kingpin of China pays you to ask about.

This is a good theory but what have they done about the huge drug dealing and Israeli espionage?

Yes, there is a smell over the bin Laden issue. Yes, there is a smell over “OPSEC” and their billboards and millions spent on advertising, money they are unable to show the origin of.

Yes, there is also a smell over security violations by those claiming to be “Tier One” operatives.

I leak as much as anyone alive but NOTHING operational ever goes out on VT.  We don’t give up sources, we don’t compromise the lives of those in the field.

Freedom of speech is one thing.  Taking money to lie is something else.  Compromising security for money is worse.

My other personal view is clear.  Special operations personnel are totally aware of $80 billion in heroin trafficking using American planes and bases in Afghanistan,Kosovo and Belgium.  ”OPSEC” is staying silent on this and bitching about Obama?

Could it be because their candidate, Romney, has all those overseas bank accounts to launder that cash?

Romney claims he paid 13% taxes the last few years but refuses to give out his returns.  We don’t want his returns, we want to know the origin of all money in the foreign accounts.  That income is NOT taxed and when mixed with the claimed “13% could lower his actual tax rate to under 1%.

I am not the one with thousands of secret bank accounts.  Time for “OPSEC” to ask about drugs and money laundering, things they know about personally, the only secrets they seem willing to keep.

The Social Security Administration Is Buying 174,000 rounds of Ammo!?

Wasteful spending, hoarding to corner the market, or do we have some doomsday preppers working up in Washington? …..

via http://www.businessinsider.com/why-does-the-social-security-administration-need-174000-rounds-of-ammunition-2012-8

First the DHS needed 450 million rounds of ammunition, then the NOAA requested 46,000 rounds, now we’ve discovered an online request at FBO.Gov calling for 174,000 rounds of ammunition for the Social Security Administration (SSA).

 

The request actually calls for 174K .357 hollow points that arguably have as much stopping power as any bullet out there, and hollow points do as much damage to soft tissue as possible on top of that.

James Holmes framed in recent Aurora, CO shooting?

also see Revealing the Link: Use of SSRIs (antidepressants) causing Rampage Shootings

my OPINION: create the “strategy of tension” within our society and the end product is total control, a world wide totalitarian state, on the backs of the taxpayers. Almost all active-shooters fit the patsy MO and almost all are on drugs that were initially developed for Nazi/MK ULTRA/ experiments, all were “gamers”, all were seeing a psych dr. Throughout history and here again since 911, a combination of methods are used to create the cry for totalitarian controls in the name of ‘peace’ and ‘safety’ ‘for the greater good’; events are used if not being covert ops to stage and manufacture a consent to outright remove the restrictions on government written into the US Constitution, namely the timeless Bill of Rights witch currently keeps the corrupt gov/corporate nanny state at bay.
Furthermore, a number of methods are being employed to actually depopulate our world (the use of GMOs, tainted vaccines, chemical poisoning of air land water, drugging a large population with psychotropics and opiates. These are all subtle forms of bio/chem war by the establishment) For more on this subject, see this movie called PsyWar by Scott Noble at metanoia films, link here

The use of silent weapons by the NWO for a silent war on all life, is more evident than ever

Photo Comparisons of James Holmes

8-6-12

via rense.com This is a comparison of the facial features between the accused shooter James Holmes, and the shooter who appeared drugged and confused in the courtroom.Let’s call them James and Court James.First of all, the hair of James Holmes is thin, while Court James is thick and wavy, almost curly. Do you really think that if James grew his hair out it would be wavy like Court James? And also Court’s hair color appears to be a deep reddish brown, but James’s hair is a definite black.The skin tone of James is a pinkish pale fair tone, with undertones of blue. While Court James skin tone has much more pigment, and on the nose we even see freckles. In the large blowup photos of the noses compare the freckles and see if you see any of them match. The noses are a dead giveaway, the nostrils are completely different and none of the freckles match. Case closed. But I will go on.Compare the angle and thickness of the black eyebrows of James to Court’s, big difference. The black eyelashes of James are also far more pronounced than Court James.Notice the shape of the upper eyelids do not match, and the lower bulbous eyelids of James are much larger than the thin lower eyelids of Court James.Court James has an eye off center, his left eye stares off a bit, while James Holmes’ eyes are pretty square on. Also the shape of James’s eyes are very almond and tilted up at a slight angle, while Court’s are more rounded. Even the color of the eyes are different, James eyes are a pure blue, while Court’s are a blue green hazel.

There is an obvious mole on both men’s faces by the right corner of the mouth. But they are not in the same place, off by a half an inch. Also there is a mole on Court James adams apple, and not one on James Holmes throat.

The earlobes of James are thinner and not as plumb as the lobes of Court James.

Chins do not match, lips do not match, and everywhere you look there is no match.

My conclusion, an obvious imposter. Just another massive red flag in a botched government psy-op staged to force through their draconian gun laws designed to disarm the public. The founding fathers foresaw exactly this scenario, and wrote the gun laws to protect the people from such an encroaching brutal government.

  • stop Unconstitutional proxy wars, drug wars, and the Global War on Terror (i.e. terrorism is a tactic, how do you fight a tactic?), $Trillions lost here
  • stop bailing out the financial sector, $Trillions lost here

The 9/11 “Watershed Event”: Towering Infernos, False Flags and the “Global War on Terrorism”

by Adrian Salbuchi via http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=31906

Global Research, July 14, 2012

When Moscow’s Federation Tower skyscraper caught fire last April, images of the blazing inferno on its upper floors were grim reminders of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks on the Twin Towers of New York City’s World Trade Centre.
 
However, had the “9/11 laws of physics” prevailed, Federation Tower would have collapsed into its footprint at free-fall speed and turned into an inches-deep dust carpet covering central Moscow. Clearly, that is not what happened…
 
What did happen was that twenty Moscow fire brigades and helicopters fought the blaze throughout the night, bringing it under control and finally extinguishing it.
 

Birth of the “Global War on Terror”

Indeed, strange events surround the 9/11 terror attack, which has become the watershed event of our modern times. For it marks the beginning of Imperial Overdrive on the part of the United States, Britain and key allies in Europe and the Middle East, all masqueraded as the “Global War on Terror.” In just over a decade, this war has cost untold suffering, death and injury to millions of people and widespread violence in many countries, some of which have since been invaded and destroyed.
 
Closer to home, 9/11 has served to “justify” today’s Gestapo-like 24/7 total surveillance police-state spying on the domestic populations of the US, UK, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and – even if to a lesser degree – in most other countries too.
 
These are just two of the many significant reasons why the 9/11 Event needs to be revisited and reassessed until the full truth finally comes out: whoreally did it, why did they do it, how did they manage to pull it off, and who have been hiding or at least diverting the awful truth about it and why?
 
We need not delve here on all the flagrant contradictions and damned lies propagated by US authorities and the mainstream media to this very day. In this respect, readers are recommended to visit the many excellent and well-researched and documented sites on the Internet, includingScholarsfor911Truth.com911Truth.orgwtc7.net911research.com, and wtc7.net, amongst others.
 
Rather, it’s the dramatic geopolitical consequences of the flagrant 9/11 lies that need to be increasingly stressed. By now, all independent thinking people know that the World Trade Centre was not brought down by 19 suicidal fanatics led by some nut hiding inside a deep cave in Afghanistan.
 
Funnily, this is the most grotesque and idiotic conspiracy theory ever told and yet… that is exactly what US, UK and European authorities expect the world to believe occurred. People everywhere, however, are increasingly waking up to the obvious fact that steel-framed buildings don’t just collapse the way the World Trade Centre did.
 

Steel and Concrete Skyscrapers Do Not Crumble to Dust…

Moscow’s Federation Tower is just one of many examples of high-rise steel buildings suffering catastrophic fires and yet remaining intact. Let’s take a quick look at other eloquent examples, some dating back many decades:
 
On 17 October 2004, a fire broke out in Caracas, Venezuela’s tallest skyscraper housing the Ministry of Infrastructure. The upper 20 of its 50 floors were destroyed and yet… it did not collapse.
 
On 12 February 2005, Madrid’s 33 storey Winsor Tower suffered a huge fire causing the outer parts of its 30 upper floors to partially collapse. It took fire fighters a full day to extinguish the blaze and yet the building… did not collapse.
 
On 23 February 1991, a major fire at One Meridian Plaza, a 38 storey skyscraper in Philadelphia, gutted 8 floors, killed 3 fire fighters and causing US$100 million in direct fire losses. The fire burned for over 19 hours, broke most windows on the fire floors; vertical columns were not damaged but horizontal beams sagged as much as 3 feet. The building did not collapse and was finally demolished eight years later.
 
28 July 1945: lost in heavy fog, a World War II twin-engine B-25 bomber rammed straight into New York City’s emblematic Empire State Building at the 78th, 79th and 80th floor levels igniting major fires and yet… the building did not collapse.
 
On 15 November 2010 a 28-story high-rise apartment building in Shanghai, China was completely destroyed by fire killing dozens, but the building did not collapse.
 
On 26 February 1993 – World Trade Centre’s North Tower suffered the detonation of a massive 600 kilogram Urea-Nitrate-Hydrogen gas-enhanced truck bomb deep under its basement level which was intended to topple the building, and yet… it did not budge an inch…
 

Ground Zero: Criminal Destruction of a Major Crime Scene

These and many other similar examples of catastrophic fires on high-rise buildings beg the question: what really happened on 9/11? Why did the two towers collapse at free-fall speed? Why did they turn into dust? Why was all the evidence immediately removed, whisked away and destroyed by US authorities?
 
What happened to those massive foundation beams cut at exactly 45° – tell-tale signs of controlled demolitions – that quickly disappeared? Think about it: the world’s deadliest and most famous crime scene where over 3,000 people were murdered was quickly gutted by the FBI, FEMA, police and military authorities; all the evidence removed and destroyed so that no forensic analyses could be done. Whatever steel beams and trusses survived were quickly sold as scrap metal to steel mills in South Korea, Taiwan and other countries for immediate melting and re-forging.
 
One would have at least expected US authorities to be curious to find out why two 110 storey towers lying next to each other collapsed so suddenly and catastrophically, if only to learn how to build stronger buildings in the future that won’t come down so very easily.
 
Everyone knows that whenever a major airliner disaster occurs, civil aviation authorities carefully pick up all the pieces, trying to put the unlucky airliner back together in some far-off hangar so they can investigate and maybe discover what went wrong. The cause of the accident – a faulty rudder, fuel tank, wing strut, avionics, hydraulic system, or whatever – can be re-designed so that airplane type and model is made safer.
 
Not on Ground Zero. US authorities cleared the area of all beams, trusses, bolts, burying whatever body parts turned up in the rubble, very fast. They only seemed concerned in ensuring Ground Zero quickly became “hallowed ground”: a mystical symbol inspiring the new-born Global War on Terror.
 
Physicists, engineers and the WTC’s own architects and builders state that the Twin Towers were built to resist direct hits from the largest jetliner of the late 60’s – the Boeing 707 – which is about as big and carries about as much fuel as the more modern Boeing 767’s that rammed into both Towers on 9/11.
 
What brought the towers down was the jets’ fuel, say government experts. And yet both fires inside the upper floors of the Twin Towers were not hot – certainly not hot enough to melt steel beams – hence their orange colour and thick black smoke, both evidence of bad or “cold” combustion. Why, even the blue flame coming out of your kitchen stove is much hotter than that, and yet your steel pots and pans do not melt every time you cook your food, right?
 
Worse still: video images of both jet impacts were very dramatic, particularly the ones of the South Tower that showed a massive, huge fireball exploding… outside the building!! Yes, indeed: a large part – perhaps most – of the fuel exploded outside and away from the tower. And yet… the South Tower collapsed first whilst videos show signs of molten steel pouring down from a spot around the 80th floor, something that was clearly notcaused by jet fuel, which is basically refined kerosene. Tell-tale signs perhaps of Thermite and Nano-thermite, both of which are high-power military explosives?
 
That is what a report published in the April 2009 edition of The Open Chemical Physics Journal concludes. Led by University of Copenhagen chemistry professor Niels H. Harrit, a research team of nine chemists concludes they “…discovered distinctive red/gray chips in all the samples we have studied of the dust produced by the destruction of the World Trade Centre. Examination of four of these samples, collected from separate sites of… these red/gray chips show marked similarities in all four samples. …The red portion of these chips is found to be an unreacted thermitic material and highly energetic.”1
 
Clearly a “smoking gun,” although not exactly the one George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and Condoleezza Rice were looking for!
 

WTC7 – The Solomon Building

Then we have that 64 million dollar question that no one can answer: why did 47-storey World Trade Centre Tower No. 7 – that was not hit by any airplane and only suffered moderate fires on its 6th and 12th floors that were being extinguished at the time – suddenly collapse into its own footprint also at free-fall speed at 5:30pm on that fateful day?
 
This nice and tidy controlled demolition even allowed for the authorities to evacuate the building so nobody got hurt. WTC7 was home to SEC (Securities & Exchange Commission) offices investigating Enron, WorldCom and high-tech stock market bubble scandals, as well as the Secret Service’s largest field office. Alas! All the evidence they had put together came down with the building…
 
Further, was WTC7 also home to a secret ultra hi-tech Command Post housing all the hardware and electronics necessary to sequentially (and probably wirelessly) detonate bombs placed inside the Twin Towers to bring them down? Once that operation was achieved, how perfect to destroy all the evidence under thousands of tons of rubble from the collapsed building? It’s just too good (or bad!) to be true!
 

Far Too Many “Significant Questions…”

We could add to all of this the incredible NORAD, FAA, USAF air defence failures over New York City and Washington DC – the most defended airspace on planet Earth; or the ridiculously small hole left by a large (alleged) Boeing 757 airliner in the Pentagon; or the almost complete lack of commercial jetliner debris in all four crashes; or the fact war games were being carried out at exactly the same time, in the same places and under the same attack scenarios; or the exceptional volume of “put options” short-selling American and United airlines stock which reaped nice earnings for some anonymous people who never dared to show up to cash them; or the fact that Osama bin Laden was immediately accused of being 9/11’s mastermind and culprit and yet for almost a decade the FBI had him on their “Most Wanted” list for other attacks but not a word about 9/11; or the glaring omissions in the 9/11 Commission and NIST reports and their grotesque computer model “proofs”; or incredible cell phones that worked at 30,000 feet; or the very suspicious US government-sponsored Bin Laden family airlift ordered by President George W. Bush once full grounding of all aircraft had taken place on 9/11; or the fact that only a day before defence secretary Donald Rumsfeld admitted the Pentagon was “missing” a mere 2.3 trillion (US$2,300,000,000,000!) in unaccounted for assets; or the fact that the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey decided to privatise the WTC to Larry Silverstein just two months earlier and that Lucky Larry got billions of dollars in insurance indemnity, even after he admitted on public TV that he agreed to “pull” the building down on that dreadful afternoon; or the FBI’s “lucky find” of WTC1 suicide pilot Mohammed Atta’s intact passport on the sidewalk below; or….
 

False Flag Attacks

More and more lucid people inside and outside the US are waking to the fact that 9/11 can only be explained as foul play purposely perpetrated by extremely powerful groups of players that are embedded deep inside the public and private power structures of the United States and its key allies, notably Israel, who have their own independent agenda. 
 
They are “False Flag” attacks, and involve staging carefully calculated very high-profile attacks on one’s own country and interests, and then laying the blame on whichever “enemy” the perpetrators wish to wage war against.
 
This is nothing new, especially in the United States where False Flag operations are a traditional foreign policy tool of deception. Intelligence agencies contingently partner and interact with discrete clandestine and criminal groups in order to plan and execute such vile acts of terrorism. They range from intentional provocation and “letting things happen,” to outright execution.
 
Understanding False Flags as part of US/UK/Israel foreign policy and war efforts not only explains key high profile dramatic events that “justified” war against a wide assortment of “enemies” in the past, but also helps us understand present-day US, UK, French and Israeli behaviour in places like Syria, Iran, Libya, Africa and Latin America. In all cases, one key objective stands out: promoting US/UK & Allies’ imperial expansion and consolidation as global hegemons.
 
A quick overview of historical False Flags:
 
1898: The US battleship “Maine” was blown up in Havana Harbour, triggering the Spanish-American War won by the US. This left Cuba, Puerto Rico, Guam and the Philippines as war booty for the Americans. It also included an early media PsyWar exercise led by William Randolph Hearst’s yellow journalism press that whipped up hysterical war frenzy amongst US citizens with his “Remember the Maine, to hell with Spain!” rhetoric. Years later, it was proven the ship either suffered a coal explosion or, more likely, a bomb attack. Divers later found that the ship’s armour plates were blown from the inside out, and not from the outside as would be caused by an enemy bomb.
 
In May 1915, the British passenger ship “RMS Lusitania” was sunk by the U20 German submarine, killing 1,200 of its almost 2,000 passengers; 128 of the dead were US citizens. A week earlier, Imperial Germany’s embassy in Washington DC had issued public warnings to passengers because “Lusitania” was known to regularly transport military supplies to Britain in its war effort against Germany and was, thus, a legitimate war target. Winston Churchill, then Britain’s First Lord of the Admiralty, used the “Lusitania” as bait knowing the Germans would try to sink it.2 On its last voyage, it carried 6 million pounds of shells and munitions shipped by JP Morgan Bank to clients in Britain and France, which explains the catastrophic explosion that quickly sank the vessel. Although it was illegal for passenger ships to transport war materials, it nevertheless “justified” US entry into World War I in 1917. Winston was very happy…
 
7 December 1941 was US President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “day that will live in infamy” when Japan attacked a US naval base at Pearl Harbour, Hawaii. In his famous speech, he went on to say, “The United states was at peace with that nation,” and yet for six months before the Pearl Harbour attack a US volunteer squadron known as The Flying Tigers had been running attack missions against Japanese forces in China causing the Japanese to lose 100 aircraft. Pearl Harbour was part of a war plan against Japan, where it served as bait for the Japanese to bite, and they did. The US had captured Japanese “Magic” decrypting machines, so they knew about an impending Japanese attack, and just “let it happen.” In fact, Roosevelt gave several of those decrypting machines to his British allies, but none to his US naval commanders in the Pacific. Hawaii’s navy commander Admiral Husband Kimmel and army commander Lt. General Walter Short were used as scapegoats, found “incompetent,” demoted and retired. However, it “justified” US entry into World War II.3
 
In March 1963, “Operation Northwoods” planned by the US Joint Chiefs of Staff was described in a document titled “Justification for US Military Intervention in Cuba.” It included staging assassinations and terror attacks in the Miami area, “sinking a boatload of Cuban refugees (real or simulated),” faking a Cuban air force attack on a US civilian airliner and blowing up a US ship in Cuban waters. All to be then blamed on Fidel Castro. Then US President John F. Kennedy did not give his approval, which must have certainly earned him further internal enemies…
 
2 August 1964: Another ‘day of infamy’ when North Vietnamese boats allegedly twice attacked the US destroyer Maddox in the Gulf of Tonkin. The truth is that, at the time, the South Vietnamese were running raids against the North in that area. The ‘incident’ was used as a pretext for massive escalation of the Vietnam War by the Lyndon B. Johnson Administration. The Pentagon Papers published in 1971 later showed that this ‘incident’ never even happened!
 
During the June 1967 Six-Day War between Israel and its Arab neighbours, unmarked jet fighters repeatedly attacked and bombed the USS Liberty patrolling international waters off Palestine in the clear hope that its sinking could then be blamed on Gamel Nasser’s Egypt, thus dragging the US into a war for Israel. Unfortunately (for Israel) the American ship did not sink, although 35 of its crew were killed by Israeli napalm and bombs. Until his death in 1999, the USS Liberty’s commander William McGonagle demanded that secret documents on this perfidious case be released. They never were.
 
These are but a few of the “fleet” of implicit staged False Flag events of which 9/11 is the “mother ship.” All we can add is, “Mission Accomplished!”
 
Outside the US we also encounter incredible “coincidences” surrounding London’s Underground terror bombings of 7 July 2005, where private firm Visor Consultants admitted it was running a mock anti-terror drill in which the fictional scenario was exactly the same as the real attacks that were then taking place.
 
Visor’s Managing Director Peter Power declared live on BBC Radio that day, “At half past nine this morning we were actually running an exercise for a company of over a thousand people in London based on simultaneous bombs going off precisely at the railway stations where it happened this morning, so I still have the hairs on the back of my neck standing up right now.” Yeah, sure… we believe you!
 

Some Conclusions

Clearly we see a pattern of covert False Flag attacks that are part of the imperial war strategy of the US, Britain, Israel and their allies. Of course, false flags require careful planning, ample financing, absolute secrecy, fully prepared media coverage using powerful PsyWar techniques, and a suitable assortment of smoke screens, scapegoats and patsies.
 
High profile government officers – presidents, cabinet ministers, congressmen – must be kept as far away as possible from the entire planning and execution process.
 
Even if they are the ones giving the final go ahead, they must never be perceived as having somehow been in the know regarding the “coming attack.” They must look and act as “surprised” as everybody else! And if doubts do start to arise afterwards, they must have full protection; it’s all part of the False-Flag Model.
 
That, for instance, is what National Security secrecy legislation exists for: to ensure that sensitive and damning evidence can be put away, and finger-pointing information fully clamped down for 25, 50, 75, even 100 years if need be.
 
The model always includes an “investigation” by a “committee” of notables. Like the 9/11 Commission chaired by insiders Thomas H. Kean and Lee H. Hamilton and directed by Philip Zelikow. If they summon top brass like George W. Bush and Dick Cheney to “testify,” that too must be done according to discrete rules of engagement, i.e., in full secrecy, both of them declaring together so they agree and correct their “answers” to ensure they are “the correct ones.”4
 
They know only too well that, in the long run, the truth ends up surfacing as with the “attacks” on the Maine, Lusitania or Pearl Harbour. The important thing is to “buy time.” If enough time goes by, they can deal with and whitewash everything, as long as the public eye perceives such “revelations” not so much as a political issue, but rather as a historical issue.
 
What harm can really arise today if we discover that Woodrow Wilson and F.D. Roosevelt tricked the US into two European wars? Even the Vietnam War is history today; for most people it boils down to several good Hollywood movies and some black-and-white images of hippy peace parades in the sixties.
 
Once something becomes “history,” it can be suitably handled, controlled and sanitised. The great opportunity we have today is that the most hideous and dramatic false flag events like 11 September 2001 and 7 July 2005 in London are not “history” (not yet, anyway) but rather an integral part of the ongoing global political scene, that continues to be used to justify US, UK, Israeli & Allies Imperial Overdrive.
 
If, thanks to technology, the Internet, the huge dissemination of information, we can somehow bring out the truth regarding these atrocities and who really committed them, to a sufficiently large portion of global public opinion, that will then spell real trouble – even the collapse – of today’s horrific clandestine, illegitimate, unelected and criminal Global Power Masters.
 
They perpetrate their mischief enshrouded in deeply entrenched positions of power inside the formal public and private power structures of the US, UK, Israel, France and the EU.
 
So, in a way, we have much to be optimistic about. All we need to do is persevere in our endeavours to bring the truth out. Once critical mass amongst the world’s collective psyche is reached, then a tipping point will no doubt be quickly reached in which this whole perverted system of global lies topples over and sinks. Just like the proverbial cruiser Poseidon; then shall this dark system disappear in a moment; in the twinkling of an eye!

Of its seven members, four were top-level Council on Foreign Relations members: Senator Gerald R. Ford, Senator John Sherman Cooper, John J. McCloy and – last but not least – Allen Welsh Dulles, CIA director from 1953 until 1961 when he was forced to resign by JFK after the Cuban Bay of Pigs fiasco. The CIA is one of the most suspect players in the JFK killing!
