A 9/11 Primer on the 20th Anniversary of 9/11

I wrote this post 2 years ago on the 18th anniversary of the September 11th attacks in 2001. So, Saturday is the 20th anniversary and I am reposting this. It gives information that, if you are still very young, your parents and teachers probably didn’t give you about 9/11. And if you are older it gives you information that the brain-dead, zombie government-stenographer mainstream “news” media also didn’t give us, and they still don’t. (I also will have a new post with commentary on this 20th anniversary shortly.)

Post from 2 years ago:

(Originally posted on September 11, 2019)

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.”

Another Covid Scamdemic Update

Joseph Mercola with an important article on the Covid “vaccine” enhancing Delta infectivity. The vaccinated are driving mutations, not the unvaccinated. There are several studies showing these things now. (Update: correction made.)

The Last Refuge on the ignorant Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus calling for doctors to avoid treating unvaccinated patients.

Meanwhile, Jon Rappoport says it’s illegal for you to know whether you have the Delta variant or not.

Children’s Health Defense explains how the “cure” for Covid, lockdowns and stay-in orders, has proven to be far worse than the disease.

Paul Joseph Watson: Forbes Deletes Article by Education Expert Asserting That Forcing Children to Wear Masks Causes Psychological Trauma, and ACLU Says the State Forcing People to Take Vaccines is a Victory For Civil Liberties

Stephen Lendman: Flu/Covid Mass-Jabbing Truth-Telling

And Ron Paul says that authoritarian vaccine mandates are the real threat.

On “Vaccine” Fraud and the Latest “Surge in Covid Cases”

Many people now refer to “getting vaccinated,” with the common implication that such “vaccination” from Pfizer or Moderna gives people immunity from Covid-19, and prevents transmission of the virus.

“Being vaccinated protects you from me,” or “protects me from you,” is what is being stated or implied. But that’s just not true.

First, the Pfizer/Moderna mRNA “vaccine” does not prevent infection or transmission of the virus, and was not intended to. The mRNA drug injection’s purpose and intention is to reduce symptoms. It is only intended to benefit the one being injected.

With the Pfizer/Moderna mRNA drug injection, there is no prevention of transmission or stopping of a contagious virus.

So, why are so many employers, schools, businesses and venues mandating “being vaccinated” and that people show “proof of vaccination” if it’s based on what is really just a myth?

Hmm, that’s a good question. (Because we now live in a 21st Century “Twilight Zone”? Ya think?)

So, while it seems that most people are repeating the lie unwittingly and ignorantly, there are people repeating the lie knowingly and intentionally and misleading the public, including, in my view, the people at Pfizer and Moderna, and the CDC and NIH. They HAVE to know the truth!

Medical and “public health” officials have no real way of even distinguishing the “Delta” variant from other variants of the Covid virus, as Jon Rappoport points out.

And the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA drug injections are not preventing infections or transmission, so instead of admitting that these drugs aren’t even intended to do that, officials such as the CDC director are saying that people will need to have a third booster shot. (And then a fourth, and a fifth, etc., etc.)

Those “vaccines” intended to reduce symptoms are really just pharmaceutical drugs for people who actually have symptoms. So, with mandates and passports, what is being mandated is that people have a pharmaceutical drug injected into their bodies, coercively, whether they are sick or not.

However, as the Johnson & Johnson Covid vaccine actually is a traditional vaccine, and is approximately 60% effective, it causes blood clots. Wait, so do the mRNA vaccines! What is the point?

In addition to that information, Laurence Vance totally dismantles the main arguments to get a Covid “vaccine,” especially by pointing out the hundreds of thousands of reports to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, and the validity of the VAERS itself.

But the Covid propaganda, lies and fear-mongering just seem to never stop. This all started in or around January of 2020, and now it’s September of 2021. Alas, it looks like it will never end.

In September 2021 we now have a religious revival in Covidiocy, a.k.a. “surge,” with “more cases” and “increased hospitalizations” and so forth. And we now hear another repeated lie, that it’s a “pandemic of the unvaccinated,” when the truth is a high percentage of those in the hospital for Covid have been partially or fully “vaccinated.” And the truth is, it is the vaccinated who are actually more of a threat to the unvaccinated!

But I wanted to address the Pfizer/Moderna mRNA “vaccine” issue here.

Now, I have referred to the mRNA “vaccines” as not actual vaccines, that weren’t intended to prevent infection or transmission but are in fact intended to reduce symptoms.

So, those “vaccines” cannot legitimately be called “vaccines,” and in fact the companies and government agencies claiming them to be such are committing fraud.

And the Pfizer/Moderna “vaccines” really are “gene therapy,” like a form of chemotherapy. When I’m googling mRNA vaccines and “gene therapy,” I see many websites such as Reuters, WebMD, and Forbes spinning and falsely asserting that the mRNA “vaccines” are NOT gene therapy.

Joseph Mercola has taken on this issue several times now. He says there’s no way around the mRNA drug injections being gene therapy, and not vaccines. But it appears that sources such as Merriam-Webster are partaking in the aforementioned spin. Mercola writes:

We should not be fooled by attempts to condition the public to accept redefined terms. As of February 2019, Merriam-Webster defined “vaccine” as “a preparation of killed microorganisms, living attenuated organisms, or living fully virulent organisms that is administered to produce or artificially increase immunity to a particular disease.” By February 26, 2021, they had updated the definition of “vaccine” to:

“A preparation that is administered (as by injection) to stimulate the body’s immune response against a specific infectious disease:

a: an antigenic preparation of a typically inactivated or attenuated … pathogenic agent (such as a bacterium or virus) or one of its components or products (such as a protein or toxin)

b: a preparation of genetic material (such as a strand of synthesized messenger RNA) that is used by the cells of the body to produce an antigenic substance (such as a fragment of virus spike protein)”

Mercola quotes from the American Society of Gene and Cell Therapy, from Moderna’s own trial website and from Wired magazine on how these Pfizer and Moderna “gene therapy” medical treatments work.

And Mercola quoted the MIT Technology Review, regarding Moderna’s development of mRNA technology:

“Vaccines were not their focus. At the company’s founding in 2010, its leaders imagined they might be able to use RNA to replace the injected proteins that make up most of the biotech pharmacopoeia, essentially producing drugs inside the patient’s own cells from an RNA blueprint. ‘We were asking, could we turn a human into a bioreactor?’ says Noubar Afeyan, the company’s cofounder …”

Hmm, that sounds like something I want injected into MY body, for sure.

Especially for a virus that has a 99.98% survival rate, and in which at least half of the people who have the virus have no symptoms. And we know that “asymptomatic carriers” do not spread the virus, according to an earlier Dr. Fauci himself and the W.H.O.

So the whole thing with lockdowns, business and school closures, masks and “vaccines” is a total scam!

Back to Mercola. In that important article Mercola cites Moderna’s SEC filings, regarding the description of the mRNA “vaccine” as “gene therapy.” The Moderna SEC filing states, according to Mercola, that, “Currently, mRNA is considered a gene therapy product by the FDA.”

And I searched the Moderna SEC filing document for that sentence. Here is what Moderna states:

Currently, mRNA is considered a gene therapy product by the FDA. Unlike certain gene therapies that irreversibly alter cell DNA and could act as a source of side effects, mRNA-based medicines are designed to not irreversibly change cell DNA; however, side effects observed in gene therapy could negatively impact the perception of mRNA medicines despite the differences in mechanism. In addition, because no product in which mRNA is the primary active ingredient has been approved, the regulatory pathway for approval is uncertain…

Hmm, they sure do project a lot of confidence in their mRNA product here, don’t they? Of course such a drug injection should be mandated on people! Who in his right mind would object to that?

And the statement says that “mRNA-based medicines are designed to not irreversibly change cell DNA,” [emphasis mine] but Moderna doesn’t guarantee otherwise.

Then there’s the “however,” followed by “side effects observed in gene therapy could negatively impact the perception of mRNA medicines…”

The “perception”? Like after the tens of thousands of deaths and hundreds of thousands of other adverse reactions from the mRNA “vaccine,” we might perceive it to be negative? Okay.

And in that Moderna SEC filing I searched for words like “prevents infection” or “prevention of infection,” or “prevents transmission,” etc. And there were no such references throughout the roughly 86,000-word document.

Mercola points out:

So, to summarize: The definition of “genetic” is something relating to genes, and the definition of “therapy” is the medical treatment of a disease. The definition of “gene therapy” is the process of modifying or manipulating the expression of a gene, or altering the biological properties of living cells.

mRNA are snippets of genetic code that instructs cells to produce proteins. mRNA COVID-19 therapies “deliver genetic instructions into your cells,” thereby triggering your body to produce a fragment of the virus (the spike protein). So, mRNA vaccines ARE gene therapy. There’s simply no way around this. They fulfill all the definitions of gene therapy and none of the definitions for a vaccine.

What we are seeing here is a massive fraud scheme, in which pharmaceutical companies are selling their experimental drug injections, claiming them to be “vaccines” and falsely claiming they will prevent Covid-19 virus infection and prevent transmission of the virus, claims and assertions that are being repeated by government officials, their “news” media stenographers, business leaders and others.

“The Unvaccinated” are being labeled selfish and terrible people and being discriminated against socially and even financially. It has now become a fanatical crusade based on misinformation, lies and propaganda.

And for what? For pharmaceutical companies to make a lot of money at U.S. taxpayer expense? This is total fraud.

Where is Rand Paul on this? He’s been good with his criticism of the harmful, oxygen-depriving sickness-causing masks, and pointing out the importance of natural immunity. But I heard Sen. Paul on the Sean Hannity radio show discussing those issues and it sounded like Paul was promoting and certainly not criticizing the “vaccines.” Is Sen. Paul afraid of the pharmaceutical companies?

And I haven’t heard Sen. Paul point out that the people administering or analyzing the PCR tests have been using high cycle threshold numbers which guarantees false positive results, and turning the numbers back down (such as in January after the W.H.O. advised that people do that, an advisory just hours after Biden was inaugurated, of course).

The problem with the PCR tests goes beyond just overly high cycle thresholds.

Does Sen. Paul know about the “casedemic” based on redefining a “case” as anyone who tests positive rather than a “case” being someone who is actually sick with symptoms? There has been another “surge in cases.” (But most of them are probably not sick.)

What about the CDC guidelines on turning the cycle threshold numbers lower to weed out false positives but only for “vaccinated” people, but leaving the numbers higher for the “unvaccinated”? I’ll bet the general population doesn’t really know that this fraud is being done. If I had any influence that U.S. senators have I’d be shouting all this by the rooftops.

If Sen. Paul is or seems to be the only one in Washington publicly arguing with Fauci and other bureaucrats on the masks, the virus itself and funding for viral research, why isn’t he bringing up the “vaccine” fraud, like calling in the CEOs of Moderna and Pfizer and getting them to admit under oath that their “vaccines” are “gene therapy” and thus are medical treatments and aren’t intended to prevent transmission of viruses?

And further, regarding the latest Covid Delta “surge,” hospital staff are testing everyone who is in the hospital, so what they have are many people already in the hospital for other reasons but falsely testing positive for the virus.

“Hospitals are inundated with Covid patients,” but mainly because many hospitals’ nursing and other medical staff are voluntarily quitting or being fired for refusing the “vaccine”! (Because they might know things most of us don’t? Ya think?)

Still, we’re talking about a cold/flu with a 99.98% survival rate, and those dying from Covid are mainly already very sick elderly people and obese people with other comorbidities.

Why so much hysteria for a virus with a 99.98% survival rate?

Rather than dangerous and risky “vaccines,” especially for people who are healthy and are not at risk from a Covid virus, taking vitamin D and zinc is better and much less dangerous for prevention. (See Our greatest weapon against the coronavirus is Vitamin D: Board-certified pathologist, Boston University study finds Vitamin D reduces COVID-19 risk, Vitamin D levels appear to play role in COVID-19 mortality rates. Patients with severe deficiency are twice as likely to experience major complications, Vitamin D deficiency may raise risk of getting COVID-19, study finds, More Than 80% of COVID Patients Are Vitamin D Deficient, Covid-19: Poor outcomes in patients with zinc deficiency, and The Potential Impact of Zinc Supplementation on COVID-19 Pathogenesis for some info.)

And plenty of studies now have been confirming that people with natural immunity, that is, people who have had Covid-19 and developed immunity, are much less likely to have Covid with symptoms than those who have had these “vaccines.” As Mercola has asked, why don’t we hear about natural immunity from our “public health” gurus?

The Now “Fully-Approved” Pfizer Covid Drug Injection Still May NOT Be Mandated

The Children’s Health Defense explains why the Pfizer drug injection still may not be mandated, and presents the FDA’s own fact sheets accompanying the “approved” drug injections as evidence.

And also, Joseph Mercola has an article, 60% of Those Older Than 50 Who Die From Covid Are Double Vaxxed. He has a lot of good, up to date info in there that you won’t get from the lying, brain-dead government stenographers of the Amerikan “news” media.

Finally, Jon Rappoport says that regardless of whether the FDA “approval” of drug injections allows for mandates or doesn’t allow for them, the “ultimate bottom line is the individual refusing the shot, No Matter What.”

And I’m working on a post, but it’s taking a little time. So that should be finished in the next few days.

Remove Ballot Access Restrictions

Jacob Hornberger has a post on establishment politicians and bureaucrats (i.e. Democrats and Republicans) blocking ballot access for non-establishment (i.e. non-Democrat and non-Republican), third-party or independent candidates. I agree with him on removing the restrictions. There’s no valid reason for those restrictions. In my view, people have a right to have their name on a ballot if they want to run for public office. While Hornberger doesn’t address this, I think such a right is protected by the First Amendment.

Don’t Start Unnecessary Wars

Doug Bandow of the Cato Institute has an article titled, Yes They Died in Vain in Afghanistan on Antiwar.com.

Gold Star families are dealing the tragic reality of the collapse of America’s mission in Afghanistan: their loved ones died in vain. Some 6300 Americans, military personnel and civilian contractors, were sacrificed for nothing.

The geopolitical wreck known as the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan delivered distressingly little in return for the service, sacrifice, and death of so many Americans – and others, both allied military members and Afghans. Almost overnight a government that turned out to be an international fraud, unable to call upon the loyalty of those it was supposed to serve, disappeared. This could not help but leave friends and family of the dead, as well as the wounded, many of whom continue to suffer from their service, feeling that they lost much, and perhaps everything, for nothing.

Unfortunately, for some the intense pain is made more intense by criticism of the war. To them questioning the value of the cause seems to denigrate the service of those who sacrificed for their country. A plea for peace is seen as an insult to those in uniform.

Accountability is long overdue.

Certainly, both the administration and Congress should review how the withdrawal was handled. However, that is not nearly enough. With America’s participation in the forty-year Afghan civil war over – assuming the War Party is not able to plunge the U.S. back into conflict by backing whatever disparate opposition to the Taliban emerges – Washington’s objectives and management also should be reviewed.

Did the Bush administration develop any alternatives to an invasion? Why did the administration reject the Taliban offer to negotiate a de facto surrender? How badly did the administration’s decision to downgrade the Afghanistan conflict and invade Iraq undermine the war effort, especially the attempt to capture Osama bin Laden at Tora Bora?

What accounted for the fateful decision to shift to nation-building? Did the Bush administration imagine that Afghanistan, too, would be a “cakewalk”? Why did successive administrations insist on creating a government and military along American rather than Afghan lines? How high did the tsunami of deceptions go? To the Cabinet? The President? Members of the congressional War Party? In short, who lied and who was lied to?
