The “Fourth Estate” Are Now Slaves of Crazed U.S. Government Psychopaths

Paul Craig Roberts says the end of accountable government is close at hand. And he’s right. Roberts observes that the CIA has so much control over the “news” media and government-approved explanations of events that most of the mainstream news media is a farce.

And,

What is astonishing about the CIA’s destruction of Julian Assange is the silence of American law schools and bar associations, the silence of universities, the absence of student and labor union protests, the absence of any protection of Assange’s rights from courts as the last news organization willing and capable of holding governments accountable for their crimes is destroyed openly in full view of the law schools, intellectuals, bar associations, courts, and print and TV media.

The CIA’s control over explanations is as complete as the control Big Brother has in George Orwell’s dystopian novel, 1984.And this doesn’t bother the citizens of the US, UK, Australia, Canada, Sweden, Europe.Only a few individuals speak out for Assange, and they, too, are demonized in turn.

In fact, I was listening to a talk radio show today, and the two co-hosts are still referring to that dreaded phone call between Donald Trump and the Ukrainian president as “Trump looking to dig up dirt on a political opponent,” Joe Biden, which is not what that phone call in question was. That was what Congressman Adam Schiffty said it was, when he read his made-up version of the phone call. The White House released a transcript of the actual phone call, and it did not show that Trump was looking for “dirt” on political opponents.

The moonstream media is a puppet of the national security state, the CIA and the military. They are not the “liberal media.” What a joke that is.

Also today Gary Barnett writes that the real news is what is not in the news. He points out that we have not been hearing anything about the Jeffrey Epstein case, or about what the U.S. government is doing to Julian Assange. He also notes the silence of non-government-approved news regarding 9/11 for the past 18 years.

I don’t know if it’s the news editors and news radio and TV producers who take direct orders from the Pentacon and the CIA, or they are so well trained by the time they get their high-up news-control jobs those editors and producers just censor based on what they have been conditioned to believe the government would approve. The control the U.S. government has over “news” (i.e. propaganda) media is amazing.

When it comes to events and issues in which people contradict the official government narrative, such as 9/11, they are called “conspiracy theorists” and so on. The same thing goes for the climate issue, in which people are labeled “deniers” by the obedient closed-minded crusaders who believe that science is “settled.” In fact, those aforementioned liberal talk radio people I heard today also frequently use the phrase, “debunked conspiracy theory” when it comes to the Russiagate or now the Ukrainegate issues. Are they that dumb? Or are they just extremely dishonest anti-truth propagandists?

And finally, Ben Norton writes about about journalist Max Blumenthal being arrested by Warshington’s anti-freedom of the press gestapo, as relates to his political reporting on Venezuela. (Kevin Gosztola has an article on that too.) Blumenthal had been exposing the Venezuelan opposition crackpots who are supported by regime-change fanatics in Warshington.

I think the “national security” (sic) state in Warshington, the moonstream media, those statists and parasites inside the beltway, they are very sick and deranged people. Liars, propagandists, and apparatchiks. They are sick.

Is Civil War Coming to Amerika?

A Georgetown University poll indicates that 67% of the voters polled believe that civil war can break out at any time in the U.S., because, it seems, there is a lot of anger out there.

That is, a civil war like that of 1861-1865. Yeah, THAT “civil war.”

Donald Trump has been saying nasty things for years, and he elicits anger in people including his supporters and those who apparently despise him.

Now, I can see how after 8 years of Obama and seeing the hostility from the braindead media with their constant lies and propaganda as well as the irrationality on the college campuses, that conservatives can be easily manipulated by Trump’s vitriolic rhetoric.

And because of the mass media propaganda against Trump and the rise in violent groups such as Antifa and the “Democratic Socialists” who believe in violence and coercion and government guns to carry out their schemes, we see a lot of social conflicts out there.

And I can see how some people don’t like being “deplatformed” by snowflake fascists who are intolerant of anyone who disagrees with them, the hunger of various sadists to go after the non-“woke” and get them fired from their jobs or banished entirely from “woke” society, or hearing Mark Zuckerberg attempt to defend freedom of speech and diversity of views on Fakebook while at the same time promoting only government-approved propaganda as being non-fake news.

But civil war?I don’t know about that.

Actually, the ones who would probably start a “war” and start shooting and bombing would be the ones whose views show that they believe in aggression, force and coercion as a means to an end.

For example, the Bush wars (on foreigners, not domestic) were wars of aggression started by the elder President Bush in 1991 and then the junior George W. Bush in 2001 and 2003.

And more recently Donald Trump believes in aggression, force and coercion in carrying out the drug war, his tribalistic war on immigrants and his trade war.

And then there are the people on the left who want to impose their socialist and communist policies with government guns. They may be even worse, given that they are feverishly working on disarming all law-abiding civilians and making them defenseless while at the same time promoting only government police and military (and non-government criminals) to have firearms.

But I still don’t think that Amerika is headed toward actual civil war. Unfortunately, a lot of people now are addicted to their stupid little gadgets, their iPhones and smartphones, and they can’t put it down and stop staring at the thing for two seconds. So many people now are addicted to the idiocy on social media, which is a place of extreme hostility, ignorance and anger on both sides.

So, it’s really this social media phenomenon that is causing the social conflicts to be exaggerated and why 67% of the voters polled think that civil war (not just civil unrest, but civil war) is coming.

Unlike an actual “civil war,” civil unrest is when we see Antifa gathering at a “Straight Pride” event and throwing urine bottles at police, and so on. But that’s not a “war.” A war is when various people in some area are armed with guns, semiautomatic rifles, bazookas, cannons and bombs firing all those things at other people in some other area, and vice versa, and it goes on for a while, with masses of dead people on the streets and so on. That’s a “war.”

But are we seeing any indication of that? Occasionally there are Antifa and white supremacists maybe getting into fights. And are there even any more of those kinds of events than there were say 10 or 20 years ago? 40 years ago we had groups such as “Weather Underground” bombing and shooting people. There are isolated incidents here and there over the years. (However, what we have had over the past 20 years have been Americans joining the largest criminal gang in the world and going over to Iraq and Afghanistan and murdering thousands, hundreds of thousands of innocent people in those areas, as the aforementioned George W. Bush did start two wars of aggression against the people of those countries and he’s still walking free. But obviously that hasn’t been a “civil” war.)

When I go outside into the center of town or into the stores, etc., I don’t see hostility, anger or hatefulness. Just regular people going about their business, and store clerks being their usual nice and friendly selves. On the public transportation there are people talking to others they are with, just regular conversations, or what I see are most people by themselves and mostly staring down into their stupid little electronic gadgets, totally oblivious to their surroundings. Now, it is possible that they are on social media getting a dose of vitriol, anger and hate in the stupid little Twitter and Fakebook things they look at — but otherwise, I am not seeing any signs of an actual “civil war” brewing. Are you seeing otherwise?

However, when the 2020 election comes around and if the ignorant fascist Trump wins despite the propaganda campaign against him, or if the shrieking bitter old hag Elizabeth Warren wins then we probably will see some trouble after 2020. But I still don’t think it will be an actual civil war. The conditions in society are not anything like they were in 1860. And also, many people now are too Xanaxized, hypnotized and subdued by their addictions to stupid electronic gadgets and social media.

So, everybody just cool it.

Religious Cults in 21th Century Amerika

Just recently I had written a post on the brainwashed climate fanatics and how that is a cult, or a religious cult, in which the cultists call for censoring (or jailing, or killing) skeptics or scientists who have a different assessment of the climate situation other than the one the cultists are brainwashed with. And I also mentioned the transgender movement which is itself a cult in which some forms of speech are also censored such as correctly referring to a biological male as “he,” etc.

Another example of a religious cult is the worship that many people have of the State, or specifically the centralized U.S. government in Washington. That took a turn for the worse after World War II with the Cold War national security state in Washington that was already a religious cult by the time it felt so threatened by President John F. Kennedy’s wanting to dismantle the Cold War apparatus of “national security” and encourage peace and free trade, that the national security state had to take out JFK. That national security state cult has controlled “America” and the U.S. government ever since.

Finally we had someone in Donald Trump who was willing to at least criticize the national security state and wanting to “drain the swamp,” even though in his cognitive dissonance Trump at the same time worships the military and government central planning. Go figure.

But, as long as Trump even questioned, for instance, the legitimacy of the wars in the Middle East, combined with his politically incorrect rhetoric, the Establishment including the national security state in Washington couldn’t have that. The Washington religious cult and the enforcement of conformity and obedience to the centralized authority was being threatened. And the now entrenched PC culture in Washington was also threatened.

So, in the tradition of J. Edgar Hoover the apparatchiks made use of the FISA spying authority and made up stuff about Trump to “leak” to the news media wing of the government, and the whole “Trump-Russia collusions” false narrative and the Mueller investigation went on for years.

And don’t forget late last year that “anonymous” source from within the White House who allegedly wrote that New York Slimes op-ed in which the Slimes said s/he was a “senior official in the Trump administration” who was admitting to sabotaging the Trump agenda.

So the “Russia collusions” false narrative didn’t work, and immediately after the Mueller Report found “No Trump-Russia collusions,” “no there there,” the apparatchiks then went on to demand Trump’s tax returns, with no actual crime they suspected him of and no initial evidence and reasonable suspicion, in their next fishing expedition. (Due process, in case you didn’t know, isn’t the fave of religious cultists who point at someone they don’t like and falsely accuse him of something.)

So now the national security state comrades, in their drooling brainwashed obedience to State authority and worship, are abusing their access to information in the White House to falsely accuse Trump of whatever they can come up with to try to get rid of him, without having to do what their predecessors did to JFK. I’ll bet they can take ANY phone call between Trump and any other foreign official and make use of some innocent, routine thing Trump might have said, to then falsely accuse him of some egregious violation of the Constitution. So this time they have used his conversation with the Ukrainian president.

We can see how brainwashed people are, such as many in the news media who are reporting as fact what Adam Schiffty read in the Committee’s hearings with the acting director of national intelligence Joseph Maguire, even though Schiffty just made it up, his portrayal of Trump as a mob boss demanding a quid pro quo, which the actual transcript does not show. The “news” media including the morning news reader on Bloomberg Radio yesterday morning referred to Trump as asking the Ukrainian president “to dig up dirt” on Joe Biden, which is what Adam Schiff said (the made-up script) but not what Trump actually said (according to the actual transcript). And the government groupies at NPR were doing that too.

So all throughout the news media we had “Trump-Russia collusions,” repeated by government-worshipers who just take the word of government officials as The Word never to be questioned or challenged with no investigative reporting necessary. And now we have the Trump-Ukrainian president phone call, and Adam Schiff’s made up version that “news” media are repeating. And we have members of Congress calling for “impeachment” of Trump now, and for made up stuff.

This is how brainwashed many people are now, throughout Amerika, in the State cult. But that cult isn’t just on the part of anti-Trump, anti-conservative, anti-freedom people on the Left, but on the part of many who are defending Trump as well. And I have said it before, but Sean Hannity is the worst of the worst when it comes to propagandists for the State and specifically the national security state in Washington. If the political parties were reversed, and it had been the Bush FBI and DOJ who used FISA spying authority to spy on the Obama campaign in 2008 and all that was surfacing in 2009-2010, I think that in such a case Sean Hannity would be defending the FBI and DOJ apparatchiks and participating in suppressing information in the same way that all the leftist “news” media have been suppressing the facts and pushing lies and propaganda since Trump was elected. And Hannity would be cheering on a hypothetical “witch hunt” against Obama using made up stuff, in my view. Just like with the Bush Jr. war in Iraq. And the rest of them on conservative talk radio and Fake News Fox News.

If you remember after 9/11, some people such as Harry Browne and others brought up the likelihood that there wouldn’t have been a 9/11 if the U.S. government had not started a war against Iraq in 1991 and imposed sanctions and no-fly zones that caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians by the year 2000.

In response to that valid claim, plenty of people in America including Hannity would label the truth-tellers as “blaming America” for 9/11 or “joining with the enemy,” etc. That is because people who are brainwashed to love and adore and worship the national security state in Washington, including the military, cannot accept the possibility that what the government and military had been doing for years or decades was morally wrong, criminal, and evil. They just cannot fathom that, so they attack the truth-tellers.

The worshipers of the national security state include most of those talk-radio ditto-heads, including Hannity, Dennis Prager, and Rush Limbaugh. I have heard them defend the U.S. military’s bombing of Korea and Vietnam and mass murders of hundreds of thousands, as well as the atomic bombing and mass murders of hundreds of thousands in Japan. We hear them constantly saying how “pro-life” they are, “it’s immoral to kill one innocent human being,” and so on. Yet they rationalize the government’s murders of innocents, based on the government’s lies and propaganda. They were obediently believing of the Bush administration’s propaganda, and were all in on the “war on terror,” in Afghanistan and Iraq.

It’s a part of State worship that many people are brainwashed with on a daily basis from their earliest days in school, pledging allegiance to the flag, i.e. obedience to State authority. They have been conditioned to be True Believers in the real god, the State. And it is this cult of “American Exceptionalism” which is why so many people dismiss the ideas of decentralization as “fringe” thinking. (Decentralization is necessary to restore our freedom.)

So the America Cult that is a part of the government-worship cult is another example of religious cults in America.

Another religious cult is the vaccine cult. Yes I am going there. This is one in which the “news” media repeat all the pharmaceutical industry promotions as “news,” and in which people say that the “science is settled,” and this or that has been “debunked,” even though it hasn’t been debunked. People are derogatorily called “anti-vaxxers” by the vaccine True Believers even though most of the so-called “anti-vaxxers” are ex-vaxxers because they saw with their own eyes what vaccines had done to their kids.

All the totalitarian crapola despite the fact that the flu shot is as little as 10% effective, vaccines and their aluminum or mercury adjuvants have been proven to negatively affect health, moods and behaviors via their causing neurological disorders, and the federal government (that many people worship for some reason) has paid out over $4 billion in compensation to families for vaccine-related injuries.

And the measles hysteria. Are you serious? Local and state governments are mandating possibly harmful vaccines based on pure hysteria and ignorance. They’re removing exemptions and really forcing it on the people! Talk about a totalitarian society in Amerika!

In the old days, like in the 1960s and ’70s when I was a kid, parents had “measles parties,” in which they intentionally let their kids get the measles so they could develop natural lifetime immunity, whereas in these later years the medical establishment (that many people worship as well, which is why it’s so closely aligned with the State that people also blindly worship) says people can instead have vaccines and they’re fine. Well, no they’re not.

And we know it’s hysteria when people are treating the measles like ebola, even though measles is not that serious, it’s like a bad cold or flu but with spots. Rarely does anyone actually die from the measles. It’s not something to be that upset about and panic over.

See Barbara Loe Fisher of the National Vaccine Information Center on the measles. And Sharyl Attkisson on what the news isn’t saying about vaccine-autism studies.

And we know it is a cult when major Internet platforms and social media are censoring non-Establishment sources of information on vaccines, “de-platforming” bloggers and businesses, and taking down people’s blogs and websites. All in the name of ignorance and hysteria. Yes, that’s a “cult.”

One example of a very well done blog that was taken down was Jon Rappoport’s blog, that WordPress.com took down, probably because of his writing on the vaccines. Here is his new blog, that I have been linking to recently.

I know there are those who don’t want to think of themselves as “brainwashed” or as a part of a “cult.” Oh, well. Sadly, there are many people who need to be deprogrammed. And that is what we have now, in 21st Century Amerika.

Have We Advanced Farther Down the Road to Soviet Amerika?

The “Trump-Russia collusions”-“Trump and Russia hacking or manipulating 2016 election results” (that never actually happened and was all made up) seems to be an ongoing agenda by the national security state (a.k.a. “deep state”). This time a CIA spook with an anti-Trump agenda is exploiting a phone call with Trump and Ukrainian president involving alleged “quid pro quo” (which it wasn’t, according to the actual transcript) regarding Joe Biden’s son being investigated or not investigated, and using it as an excuse to make up more stuff and have members of the political class and the government-lapdog media endlessly repeat the hearsay, lies and propaganda toward removing Trump from office.

I think that Congressliar Adam Schiff is the worst of the worst when it comes to Soviet-wannabe government liars. They probably have something on Nancy Pelosi, who knows that a House impeachment of Trump will not get a Senate conviction, because the evidence that is available does not back the assertions of the CIA “whistleblower,” and that such a farce will only strengthen the chance of a Trump reelection. And now, after saying she also was against a Trump impeachment, Congressbimbo Tulsi Gabtard is now for a Trump impeachment. It was a botched joke.

What bothers me is the “Intel (sic) Community” changing the requirements for whistleblowers from having to have direct, first-hand knowledge (or evidence?) of improper (or illegal) behavior of other spooks or superiors, to being able to use second- or third-hand hearsay, rumor and gossip as is the case with the current allegations against Trump of pressuring foreign leaders to do something as a “quid pro quo” for political expediency.

So I’m not sure if all this is merely just an anti-Trump crusade or perhaps a part of a larger agenda to soften due process requirements against anyone who is accused of something. Particularly in the political world (which seems to be a large chunk of what Amerika is all about now, certainly not the economic or voluntary-exchange world).

For example, just as the flunkies of the DOJ, CIA and FBI made stuff up about Donald Trump to try to help Hillary Clinton win the 2016 election and if that didn’t work then make stuff up to try to take down the Trump presidency, in that regard the apparatchiks made stuff up about Brett Kavanaugh to derail his getting on the Supreme Bureaucrats. And don’t misunderstand me, I think that Kavanaugh should never have a judicial appointment given that his lower-court rulings show what a dangerous anti-America anti-due process police-state ignoramus he is. But, anyone who is accused of something has a right to require the accuser to bring forth evidence against the accused, regardless who the accused is. Trump, Kavanaugh, or you or me.

This is especially a cause for concern now because of the “Red Flag” laws already in place or that are being proposed all over Amerika. That’s mainly to do with the gun control lobby, hysterical snowflakes who can’t understand that it is the gun control laws and gun-free zones we already have in place that are disarming peaceful, responsible citizens and making the people defenseless in the event of a crazed shooter who doesn’t obey gun laws or any laws for that matter. The hysterical snowflakes just can’t seem to get through their damn noggins.

So now the hysterical snowflakes are acting as useful idiots for the police statists who want to have a government armed to the teeth ruling over a totally disarmed civilian population. This is the way that communists like “The Squad” can ram their agendas through and they will enforce their wealth-confiscation and industry-seizures at the point of a government gun against the enslaved and helpless population. Martial law? Civil unrest? In America? (Some people think I’m way off, or that I’m “paranoid.” But that is because they don’t know history.)

But the “Red Flag” laws will enable anyone to accuse anyone else of anything, particularly such victims who do not support the agenda of police state, industry-seizure and wealth-confiscation, i.e. slavery of the people by the elite political class. This is the real reason why “Red Flag” laws and all the greedy and power-hungry minions of the political class have all the voices of the mainstream corporate media on their side, repeating the propaganda over and over and over.

Don’t believe the propaganda, everyone. Just assume they are lying, or they are covering up the truth (or they are spreading false information because they are ignoramuses and/or brainwashed sheeple). And especially they do not have your interests at heart. If they did, they would be promoting freedom, freedom for you and freedom for me, and that necessarily means the dismantling of the federal regime apparatus, a full and complete decentralization of this whole territory, at the very least.

Your 9/11 18th Anniversary Primer

Today is the 18th anniversary of the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks on the New York World Trade Center, the Pentacon, and in Pennsylvania. Where was I on that day? Well, I was here in this same apartment sitting at my table doing some writing and my father (now deceased) called at around 10 am saying that their trip that they were going to go on that day was canceled and he told me why. Hmm.

The government’s propaganda began immediately on that day and after. 99% of the news media were the White House press spokesmen. There was no discussion of the attackers stated motives, or the history of U.S. government and military’s invasions, bombings and occupations of the Middle East in the 10 years prior to that time. Anyone who did mention those things was labeled “Anti-America,” or “blaming America” for the attacks. Sean Hannity has been especially bad in that regard ever since that time. He is the worst of the worst as far as apparatchiks for the national security state are concerned. I just thought I’d mention that.

However, given that Hannity and all the other radio ditto-heads are accepting of the idea that actual U.S. government FBI, CIA etc. abused their powers including FISA spying in the Russiagate fiasco, maybe now some of these obedient worshipers of the national security state can at least consider the possibility that the official 9/11 narrative isn’t what the government has been telling us for 18 years. (But, I am not holding my breath.)

So, I’m sure that a lot of people reading this post will just skim it and not really take it seriously or click on any of the links for further information. This is because they are satisfied with what the government and its spokespeople of the mainstream media have been telling us since September 11, 2001. All these things they haven’t heard about must be merely whack-job “conspiracy theory” and all that. But there are still some people who are open to the truth.

In the years prior to the attacks, Congressman Ron Paul had several times warned that the U.S. government’s interventionist policies and war that it started against Iraq and elsewhere and Iraqi sanctions would cause blowback and retaliation within our shores. (And the response? Crickets.)

Addendum: For information on the U.S. government’s pre-9/11 sanctions on Iraq throughout the 1990s and their effects, see Jacob Hornberger, Sanctions: the cruel and brutal war against the Iraqi people, and James Bovard, Iraqi sanctions and American intentions: blameless carnage?

It’s amazing just how brainwashed so many people can be by daily propaganda, watching the TV news, listening to chickenhawk warmonger conservative talk radio, and so forth. “Al Qaeda.” “Osama bin Laden,” and “Islamic” were words that people heard over and over and over, but they rarely heard about Saudi Arabia and blowback.

I don’t know what else to write so I will post links to some new and old articles on the subject, and maybe some videos.

James Bovard on the 9/11 Commission, a bootlicking national disgrace.

Paul Sperry from the New York Post writes this week how Robert Mueller helped Saudi Arabia cover up its role in 9/11.

Related to that, a year ago “28 Pages,” which documents Saudi Arabia’s role in 9/11, had an exclusive article on FBI telling a counterterrorism agent not to help 9/11 victims build their case against Saudi Arabia because that might harm U.S.-Saudi relations. (Doh!)

Prior to 9/11 the FBI were told by the Bush Administration to lay off the bin Laden family and Saudi connections to terrorism.

Paul Craig Roberts writes today:

Over the years I have reported the findings of scientists, engineers, and architects that indicate that the official story is false.I had an open mind for two reasons.One is that having been an engineering student, I could tell the difference from a building falling down from asymmetrical structural damage and a building blowing up.The other is that having been involved in policy issues in Washington for a quarter century I knew that such a humiliating defeat suffered by the world’s only superpower at the hands of a few Muslim terrorists would have brought instant demands from the White House, Congress, and media for investigation into how every aspect of the American national security state failed simultaneously on one morning.Instead the White House resisted the 9/11 families demands for an investigation for one year and never delivered a forensic investigation.Instead, the country was given a 9/11 Commission Report that was merely the government’s official story of what happened.No heads rolled.No one was fired or even reprimanded.To hold no one accountable for such a massive failure and humiliating defeat is not a believable response if the official 9/11 story is true.

Washington’s Blog: Everything we’re doing now was planned before 9/11. And Washington asks, Will the mainstream media ever report on the numerous admitted false flag terror attacks? Many examples given. And another post about U.S. government’s foreknowledge and aiding and abetting the terrorists.

The Guardian: Osama bin Laden had ties to CIA

David Ray Griffin asks, Where is the evidence that Osama bin Laden had responsibility in 9/11? (Remember, Hannity et al. have been complaining ad nauseam, and rightly, that people accusing Trump of “Russia collusions” do not have any evidence, and so on. Evidence is important.) The FBI’s 10 most wanted list included Osama bin Laden because of the African embassy and USS Cole bombings, but NOT because of 9/11 because they had no evidence linking the two. Further info from the Muckraker Report. Read Griffin’s book, Osama bin Laden: Dead or Alive?

In 2009 the Daily Mail asked, Has Osama bin Laden been dead for 7 years?

An early 2002 Dan Rather CBS News report on bin Laden’s serious illness:

A December, 2001 Fox News story, still online: Bin Laden already dead.

Of course, how could Osama bin Laden have been killed and thrown out to sea by SEAL Team 6 in 2011 if bin Laden had already died in 2001 or 2002? Paul Craig Roberts again with some questions.

Another question to ask is what caused the helicopter crash in Afghanistan that killed several SEAL Team 6 members who were involved in the Osama bin Laden “killing” just a couple months before that.

And Paul Joseph Watson on the Bin Laden fable shortly after he was “killed” in 2011. While Steve Watson explains the U.S. government’s history of fake bin Laden tapes.

Former CIA asset Susan Lindauer, a whistleblower who was railroaded and labeled a psychiatric case by USGov, explains more truth about 9/11, and the missing security tapes for the World Trade Center.

Here is an interview in which Lindauer tells about her experiences:

James Corbett with an hour-long discussion on who was really behind the 9/11 attacks:

And here is a video documentary from Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth explaining the evidence that explosions brought down the World Trade Center, and not the fire caused by planes crashing into the buildings:

I admit it. I’m a “truther.” That’s because the truth is important. And as the late Justin Raimondo wrote, the opposite of a “truther” is a “liar.”
