Middle Western extremist terrorist caught in false-flag lies

You can't make this stuff up!

I mean, seriously, I am flabbergasted.

More proof that in the age of neoconservatism, satire is superfluous:

Carlos F. Lam
Carlos F. Lam, false-flag terror fan and shamelessly "flabbergasted" liar

As I reported a few days ago, Carlos Lam, a Republican activist and prosecutor from Indiana, resigned last Thursday after revelations that he had emailed Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker urging Walker to stage an act of false-flag terrorism.

Now the Green Bay Press-Gazette is reporting the hilarious details of the "flabbergasted" Lam's lies when initially confronted about his email:

Reached Tuesday by phone at the number listed on the email, Lam confirmed his email address matched the Hotmail address appearing on the Walker email, but said he had never written to Walker.

“I am flabbergasted and would never advocate for something like this, and would like everyone to be sure that that's just not me,” he said, after being read the email.

Asked his views on Scott Walker, Lam said,

“I think he's trying to do what he has to do to get his budget balanced. But jeez, that's taking it a little bit to the extreme,” he said of the email’s suggestion to fake violence. “Jeez!”

Lam said he was minivan-shopping with his family when the email was sent.

 Later Lam admitted sending the email and resigned.

Lam isn't the first neocon Republican false-flag terrorist to lie shamelessly when confronted with proof of his misdeeds. (Watch Rudy Giuliani lie about his well-documented foreknowledge that the Twin Towers were going to collapse.)

But he may be the funniest.

Let's BURN the 9/11 Commission Report on September 11th, 2011

A Muslim brother just emailed me this heartbreaking remark about the Florida Qur'an-burning:

Pakistanis slam Qur'an desecration (Muslim Americans Still Silent One Week Later?)

But what can we say? As Muslims in post-9/11 America, if we express our real feelings, we will be called "extremists"; and if we insist on our right to defend ourselves, both verbally and physically, against the ongoing 9/11-instigated genocide, we will be labeled "terrorists."  For just as "driving while black" (DWB) still can get you pulled over, DWI (Defending While Islamic) can get you shipped to Guantanamo. After all, they couldn't accomplish a genocide against 1.5 billion people without disarming the victims. And far more important than physical disarmament is psychic and spiritual disarmament: they want us to be afraid to stand up and speak the truth and insist on our universal human right to verbal and physical self-defense.

So how should we defend ourselves and our Deen against the yahoos who burn the Qur'an? If we don't do something, they'll escalate and start burning mosques, then burning us. (Come to think about it, they're already burning mosques.)

The word "radical" means "going to the root." So here's a radical proposal - one that goes to the root of the problem. Let's all burn the 9/11 Commission Report on September 11th, 2011.

The 9/11 Commission Report is a diabolical attempt to forge a myth - a myth whose purpose is to justify genocide against Islam. Its author, Philip Zelikow, is a radical Zionist and self-professed expert in "public myths" that powerfully manipulate public opinion even though they "may not be true." Zelikow drafted the Report before the Commission had even been set up, and he controlled the entire pseudo-investigation. The resulting Report is, in essence, a novel by Philip Zelikow. Yet by purporting to be true, it aims for sacred (mythic) status.

Those who have read the 9/11 Commission Report critically and examined its sources know that Zelikow basically made the whole thing up, perhaps with help from those who tortured Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM) and others into false confessions. The entire story of the alleged "19 Arab hijackers" is based on alleged secondhand reports from the war criminals who tortured KSM and the pathetic schizophrenic Abu Zubeida. Nobody on the 9/11 Commission ever saw or spoke to the interrogators or their victims, witnessed any interrogations, saw any transcripts, or heard any audio or video. And the CIA later admitted destroying the tapes of the torture sessions on which virtually the entire 9/11 Commission Report is based.

Zelikow's tortured thriller never once mentions World Trade Center Building 7, a 47-story high-rise  that imploded in less than seven seconds at 5:20 pm on 9/11/01. It never explains what caused the Towers to explode into dust in about ten seconds each. It claims that the question of who financed the 9/11 attacks is "of little practical significance." It never adequately addresses any of the crucial questions about what happened that day raised by hundreds of scholars including David Ray Griffin.

(For the short version, see Griffin's The 9/11 Commission Report: A 571-Page Lie.)

Matt Naus and other Milwaukee activists barbecue the 9/11 Commission Report as part of the Boston Tea Party for 9/11 Truth in 2007

The 9/11 Commission Report is a diabolically evil document. It is rooted in torture, and scripted to trigger a genocide against more than a billion human beings. (Zelikow, who co-authored a 1998 article speculating about the likely political, psychological and cultural consequences of a Pearl Harbor style event such as the destruction of the World Trade Center, almost certainly wrote the first version of the Report before 9/11,  as a script for the special operations professionals who carried out this murderous false-flag attack.)

Even those who have not studied these matters sufficiently to agree with the above paragraph, if they are reasonable must admit that the 9/11 Commission Report is grossly inadequate as an official account of the most important event of the 21st century. Organizing a mass burning of the 9/11 Commission Report, in cities, towns and villages all over the world, would emphasize this point. Additionally, it would make the statement: "We Muslims, and those who sympathize with us in our fight against genocide, are not going to accept this Report, nor the world-view it attempts to inculcate. Nor are we going to remain defenseless in the face of 9/11-instigated Islamophobia. We are calling you out on the admitted and obvious gross inadequacies of this Report. Launch a real investigation, and produce a credible report, NOW."

They've burned the Constitution. They're burning Qur'ans. They've burned down Iraq and Afghanistan - and the US economy. All based on one 571-page lie.

After ten years, maybe it's time to burn down that lie, and let the real America rise from its ashes.  Let's organize to burn the 9/11 Commission Report on September 11th, 2001.

I hate to say I told you so, but...

Back in February, I wrote an op-ed entitled "Wisconsin Governor admits to plotting false-flag terror; media averts eyes." By normally-accepted standards of quality -- freshness, communicative effectiveness, importance of content, ability to grab the reader's attention, and so on -- it was at least as good as anything published on any editorial page in Wisconsin this year. Yet (surprise, surprise) no local print outlet would publish it.

In my February op-ed, I explained that: "False-flag terror is the oldest and arguably most powerful trick in the book of governments. By stirring up trouble and spreading fear, rulers trick the people into begging them - the rulers - for security at any price. Whether you are a state governor or the President of the United States or a tinpot dictator like Mubarak, the best way to augment your power is to hire special ops professionals to dress up as 'terrorists' and perpetrate violence. You can then blame the violence on your political enemies, destroy those enemies, consolidate power, and rule unopposed."

As it turns out, this is exactly what Indiana prosecutor and Republican activist Carlos Lam urged Wisconsin governor Scott Walker to do! As Raw Story reported Thursday:

Indiana prosecutor told Wisconsin governor to stage ‘false flag’ operation

An Indiana prosecutor and Republican activist has resigned after emails show he suggested Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker stage a fake attack on himself to discredit unions protesting his budget repair bill.

The Republican governor signed a bill on March 11 that eliminates most union rights for public employees.

In an email from February 19, Indiana deputy prosecutor Carlos F. Lam told Walker the situation presented "a good opportunity for what’s called a ‘false flag’ operation."

The Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism discovered the email among tens of thousands released to the public last week following a lawsuit by the Isthmus and the Associated Press.

"If you could employ an associate who pretends to be sympathetic to the unions' cause to physically attack you (or even use a firearm against you), you could discredit the unions," Lam said in his email.

"Currently, the media is painting the union protest as a democratic uprising and failing to mention the role of the DNC and umbrella union organizations in the protest," he continued. "Employing a false flag operation would assist in undercutting any support that the media may be creating in favor of the unions." 
(full story: http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2011/03/24/indiana-prosecutor-told-wisconsin-governor-to-stage-false-flag-operation/)

When will the media wake up and inform the people that false-flag terror is not only extremely common, but arguably THE most powerful tool of unscrupulous rulers? That the minute a neocon Republican gets in trouble, he thinks about calling in the special ops pros for a false-flag?

I'll tell you when: They'll do it when they're finally forced to admit that, as Geraldo put it, those "obnoxious" 9/11 truthers were right all along.

And when that happens, would it be obnoxious, or only fair, to say "I told you so"?  And to add "if you had listened then, millions of murdered people would still be alive" ?

My Richard Falk interview transcribed by Zionist neo-McCarthyites at UN Watch

  (Listen to the interview, recorded last October, here)

HOST: Hi, this is Dr. Kevin Barrett of Truth Jihad.Com. You may know me as the host of a certain controversial radio show, namely “The Kevin Barrett Show,” heard every Tuesday right here on No Lies Radio. No Lies Radio offers fearless and honest coverage of the 9/11 truth movement, and is a rapidly growing source of alternative news and information. Please help us continue to grow. You can support No Lies Radio, and my show, both by ordering either or both of my books as a thank-you gift with your donation, to No Lies Radio. These books, “Questioning the War on Terror,” and “Truth Jihad,” are collector’s editions that are personally autographed by yours truly. I urge you to go to the donate page at No Lies Radio.org, and make this happen. [musical interlude]

 Welcome, this is the Kevin Barrett Show; I’m your host, Kevin Barrett. My website is Truth Jihad.com. Every week here, I try to bring you the most important voices that aren’t being heard as widely as they should. And that certainly applies to today’s guest. One of the most illustrious people I’ve ever had as a repeat radio guest on this show, Richard Falk.

Richard Falk is a Professor Emeritus of International Law at Princeton University. He is currently the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Human Rights for the Palestinian Territories, and he just submitted a report on that, which we’ll be talking about. He is the author, editor, or co-author, co-editor of more than 40 books, which are required reading for anybody interested in peace and justice, and how international law can affect those.

He wrote a book called The Great Terror War, published by Interlink in 2002, and it was shortly after that in 2003 that David Ray Griffin was working on his first book, “The New Pearl Harbor.” David started out by writing a magazine article that grew into a book, and most of the major publishers didn’t want to touch it with a proverbial ten-foot pole.

Richard apparently helped David get hooked up with Interlink, which has been the publisher of David Ray Griffin’s magnificent 9/11 truth books ever since. Richard introduced that with a wonderful introduction in “The New Pearl Harbor,” and he wrote a great blurb for David’s latest book, “Cognitive Infiltration,” and Obama appointees’ plan to, now I’m forgetting the subtitle, the plan to, against the 9/11 conspiracy theory. Oh boy, my memory is already starting to fail.

Anyway, Richard is doing fantastic work for human rights, and Palestine has seen in particular over the past several years with the United Nations. It’s always an honor to have him on the show. So without further ado, welcome Richard Falk, how are you Richard?

FALK: Well thank you very much Kevin, that was a very glorious introduction that I hope I can live up to in the next hour.

HOST: Well I’m sure you will. We’ve done this before, and you are a very articulate person who has thought through these matters of truth, justice and international law so carefully. Unlike so many you have the courage to say things forcefully and clearly. Your work on Palestine is very important. You have an article titled “Slouching Toward Palestinian Holocaust” that seems to convey the sense of urgency you feel about deteriorating human rights situation in Palestine. Tell us a little bit about how you got involved with this issue.

FALK: Well I think it’s a long story that goes back maybe a decade or so, and arose out of a general concern with the use of force and denial of self-determination that was associated with the way in which Israel was behaving toward the Palestinian people; particularly after the 1967 war. But really, if one looked more deeply, ever since it was established in 1948, and although I have a Jewish background myself, I felt committed to these issues from the perspective of international law which is my training, and in a sense the core teaching commitment I have had over the years. My interest in these kinds of issues I guess goes back to my opposition to the American role in the Vietnam War where I was very active in invoking international law as an appropriate restraint on American foreign policy. Both for normative or ethical reasons, but also for pragmatic reasons that in this period of declining colonialism, international law is a helpful discipline for the powerful, because hard power doesn’t get you very much in the world we’re living in today, and unfortunately the United States and Israel are still addicted to hard power solutions to conflict situations…

HOST: When I contacted you to do this interview, I think it was right after Ahmadinejad had given that speech at the UN in which he, basically spoke up for 9/11 truths and basically said the same thing that I have been saying for years. Of course that was met with a U.S. walk-out. I love the Fox News article about this by the way, the headline was something like “Ahmadinejad Gets Standing Ovation for Speech at the U.N. for Saying U.S. Did 9/11” Unlike the other American news reports which tried to marginalize Ahmadinejad, the Fox report, honestly pointed out that when Ahmadinejad went before the U.N., he got a standing ovation and despite the walk-out of a handful of countries, the more than 100 countries remained, the vast majority remained in the room and gave him another standing ovation when he finished his truth speech. Does this indicate that we are living in a world in which, for instance polls show that ¾ of the world’s Muslims know that 9/11 was an inside job, whereas it’s only about 1/3 of the American people, are we seeing a real polarization of world views around this issue? Do you think Muslims could, by become more vocal and united on this issue, as I’m trying to help happen with Muslims with 9/11 Truth, can we change the way that Middle East Policy is perceived by calling into question the events of 9/11?

FALK: I think it’s possible, it’s very hard to say how that would play out, but I think it’s possible. Of course the truth is a positive value of its own, and even aside from whether it has these secondary effects, it’s important to speak the truth in matters that are so vital to understanding the integrity and legality of our own governing process. I would add one word about Ahmadinejad; I had a message from a friend in Lebanon who said his recent visit to Lebanon was greeted with the greatest enthusiasm expressed toward any foreign leader in the history of the country. [This] is an indication of how far we, in this country, and our media, are disconnected with the mood and climate of opinion elsewehere. Lebanon is a country that wasn’t particularly thought of as even being in the Islamic world, it’s as a divided country. But Iran did a great deal to help the reconstruction of Lebanon after the 2007 devastating air attacks by Israel, and the people of the country recognize this, and express their thanks and gratitude toward Ahmadinejad, as well as his position on the Israel-Palestine conflict. I think it is very, somehow, important that like your own try to break through this wall of deception that the American people have been living behind for so long now that they don’t even understand that they are being manipulated in a very dangerous and self-destructive way.

HOST: Well this friendly greeting, more than friendly this overwhelming greeting that Ahamdinejad got in Lebanon is just another example that the neo-cans aphorism that it’s better to be feared than loved may have its limits. Don’t you think?

FALK: Yes. I think that that notion of better feared than loved is part of what I earlier was talking about in terms of hard power addiction. This sense that history is shaped by military superiority, I think no longer expresses historical reality, and hasn’t since the end of WWII, where almost all of the colonial were won by that was weaker militarily. Our own experience in Vietnam should have taught us, but didn’t that you can win every battle inside the territory that is experiencing the conflict, and yet lose the war. We can’t absorb that lesson until we keep repeating the failure.

HOST: Indeed, continuing the same cycle of destruction, even as our economy goes off the cliff. Well Richard, you said you saw David Ray Griffin, our very admired mutual friend, just a week ago, and that he’s feeling better. I know my listeners probably know that he suffered a very serious illness late this summer. He is feeling better, and in good spirits and committed to the causes of truth and justice?

FALK: Definitely. He’s had a difficult and painful time, it wasn’t really an illness so much as a back surgery that went wrong because he had an infection, a staph infection, that was associated with his time in a hospital, and that, in turn induced this small stroke. He was a casualty of contemporary medical practices I’m afraid.

HOST: Well, hospitals are not the best places to be if you can possibly avoid them, that’s for sure. You’ve offered words of praise for his most recent book, on Cass Sunstein the Obama advisor who wrote that outrageous article urging the government to infiltrate the 9/11 truth movement, and disable the purveyors of conspiracy theories and so on, which would seem to be wildly unconstitutional. What’s your take on David’s book and why Cass Sunstein would be so extreme in his urging the government to drop the constitution and take down the 9/11 truth movement?

FALK: Well, of course very speculative, I think that Griffin’s book is a devastating critique of the Sunstein position. The Sunstein position seems to reflect either an implicit or explicit anxiety in the power elite that is running this country that they have to do everything they can to discredit those that are questioning the official version of what took place on 9/11. That they do this in part by pretending that by calling something a conspiracy theory, you’ve eliminated the need to investigate the factual reality of what took place. The liberal press has gone along with that to a frightening degree because they seem to feel that their reputation depends on not endorsing any kind conspiracy notion or anything that is labeled a conspiracy, unless of course it comes from a progressive source, in which case they jump to establish a conspiracy theory. [The liberal press] are very ready ever since the Cold War, to call any sympathy with progressive causes as the basis for criminal accountability. You see that in the pursuit of some Muslim religious figures, not only here, but in Western Europe and elsewhere.

HOST: Do you think the liberal media will ever review on of David Ray Griffin’s books? Let’s go ahead and do full disclosure. I recently contacted the editor of a progressive magazine here in Madison, Wisconsin, Matt Rothschild who I see occasionally. We have differences of opinion about 9/11, but he did stand up for my academic freedom when I was under the gun by the State Legislature, so I appreciate that. I contacted him and asked whether he would run a review of David Ray Griffin’s book Cognitive Infiltration if it were written by such a great guy as Richard Falk, and I haven’t heard back from him yet. Would you review David’s book if a major left publication would publish it?

FALK: Yes I’d be glad to do that. We’ll see what happens. So far, the blackout has been pretty systemic and it speaks pretty badly for the quality of democracy that someone who is a scholar of David’s observer of contemporary events cannot even receive a critical hearing much less a sympathetic hearing, which I think he deserves.

HOST: Indeed, it is mind boggling that if those who disagree with a 9/11 truth case really wanted to shoot it down, and they believe it to be false, why don’t they organize a very widely viewed public forum. Why don’t they give it plenty of attention, why don’t they let David Ray Griffin make his case and let the details show why that case is wrong. Cass Sunstein and the editors of The Nation won’t do that.

FALK: Yes, it’s revealing. I think about a certain self-censorship that I think is partially a legacy of the Cold War and partly a consequence of trying to stay at the table even if you’re at the very end of the table. These left-liberal organs of opinions don’t want to seem as if they’re “irresponsible,” with that word responsibility as being ideologically manipulated by the power wielders.

HOST: There seems to be a somewhat different atmosphere here in the US than in Europe, where there’s a tradition of partisan journalism, and it seems to me the European muckrakers are more likely to go after the powerful with no holds barred. Where as here, our left press seems to be pretty timid, especially with our upsetting issues like 9/11, the assassination of both the Kennedys, Martin Luther King as well, and so on.

FALK: Yes they can go after scandals or those kinds of issues, forms of domestic issues, but it’s very difficult, as soon as you touch on foreign policy or so-called national security issues.

HOST: Here in the USA it’s not supposed to be this way. We’re supposed to be an anti- imperial power; we were not supposed to have a standing army. Do you think it’s the US history of the endless conquest of the frontiers, a sort of manifest destiny, that’s led us to this place where the national security rights of empire trump everything?

FALK: I think yes, I think it’s a cumulative process that is historically reinforced by the frontier violence in our early history. Since WWII, a condition of permanent war that has militarized the governmental bureaucracy to an unprecedented degree and that puts us in the situation where it’s extremely difficult for our elected leaders to think outside the military box.

HOST: Well, we better start thinking that way, because the way things are going; we’re going to be broke, maybe with civil conflict, lost colonial wars overseas. This country is not heading in the right direction. But it’s truth speakers and serious scholars with integrity like you Richard, who at least give me hope that the best of this country can salvage something from this situation. We’ve reached the end of the hour, as always it’s been a wonderful conversation, I thank you so much for coming on the show God bless you and your work, and hope to stay in touch.

FALK: As always it’s a great pleasure to be with you Kevin, keep up your great work.

HOST: Thanks Richard, appreciate it.

FALK: That’s Richard Falk the UN Special Rapporteur the Palestinian Territories, Professor Emeritus at Princeton University, and one of my personal heroes. I’m Kevin Barrett on the air for Truth Jihad.com.

In defense of Dr. Usama Hasan

Re: "Scientist Threatened Over Darwinist Views" - U.K. Telegraph

We know that the leadership of Saudi Arabia is allied with the Zionists against the world's 1.5 billion Muslims.

We know that the Saudi leadership urged the US to attack Iran and risk plunging the region - and the world - into nuclear hellfire.

We know the Saudi leadership is the biggest money launderer for the Zio-American banksters and their oil cartel, and that these criminals have been propping up the dollar - and the Zio-American war on the world's Muslims and other oppressed people - since 1971.

We know the Saudi leadership invited US troops into Arabia in response to fake satellite photographs provided by the US - leading to the slaughter of more than two million innocent Iraqi Muslims by the forces of kufr.

We know that if the Zio-Americans withdrew their support, the Saudi monarchy would not stand for five minutes against the wrath of the people of Arabia.

We know that most of the Saudi elite are depraved playboys who spend their lives jet-setting around the world in search of gambling, cocaine and prostitutes - yet these people claim custody of the holy places of Islam.

And we know that these scoundrels try to buy "Islamic" legitimacy by donating money to various Muslim causes - especially depoliticized, ultra-reactionary Salafi obscurantists who serve Zionism by painting Islam as a religion of bigots, idiots, and reactionary fanatics.

It is these criminals who are behind the persecution of a Muslim scientist, Dr. Usama Hasan, by "a small but vocal group of largely Saudi-influenced orthodox Muslims who use evolution as a way of discrediting imams whom they deem to be overly progressive or 'western orientated'".  Dr. Hasan's sin? To argue that evolutionary theory and Islam are compatible.

Personally I am not a Darwinian. I do not buy the notion that random mutation is the chief engine of natural selection - Michael Behe and Lynn Margulis have offered different but cogent critiques of that idea - nor do I accept the materialist worldview that is the basis of Darwinism. Additionally, the definition of "the fittest" (as in "survival of the fittest") is circular, since "fittest" can only mean "fittest to survive," making the claim tautological ("those fit to survive are those fit to survive," i.e. "survivors survive and non-survivors do not"). In short, Darwinism sets out to explain everything, and in the event explains nothing. Worse, it provides a horrible model for human society by painting "nature red in tooth and claw" as the way of the world. I agree with the world's best-known anti-Darwinian, Harun Yahya - who has appeared on my radio show three times - that the rise of Darwinism has had terrible consequences.

Yet in all honesty, I do not find most of Yahya's anti-evolution arguments very convincing, nor do I agree with him, and other anti-Darwinian Muslims, that the Qur'an is necessarily incompatible with evolutionary theory. I think we need to be humble enough to admit that only Allah knows the full truth, and that the rest of us should be free to pursue the truth as best we can.

But what I think and what you think and what Harun Yahya thinks isn't the real issue. The real issue is that a bunch of obscurantist idiots have terrorized Dr. Usama Hasan and made Islam look like a religion of complete boneheads.

If the anti-Hasan crowd has a beef against the West, why not pursue it sensibly - by  struggling to end the Zio-American empire's dominion over the lands of the Muslims, and re-establish a united Islamic caliphate? The biggest front in that struggle is the information war - which Hilary Clinton recently admitted the Zio-Americans are losing to the likes of Iran's Press TV. Why hand ammunition to the enemy?

By attacking a fellow Muslim in a way designed to shed a bad light on Islam, these fools are operating as false-flag patsies for the very interests they think they're resisting.

A God-Centered Planet

Galileo had his facts right, but the Church had good intentions. Above and beyond arguments over geocentrism vs. heliocentrism, the Church was (ineptly) defending its vision of earth as a God-centered planet.

In a sense, earth and all other celestial bodies have always been, and will always be, deocentric. At the "center" of existence is a unified superconsciousness (allahu ahad) that is eternal (allahu samad), not part of any natural chain of causality (lam yalid wa lam yulad) and incomparable to anything in creation (wa lam yakun lahu kufu'an ahad).  (Source: Qur'an, Surat al-Ikhlas.)

Science cannot prove the existence of God any more than it can prove the existence of consciousness. But it can offer powerful hints.

The "Mary's room" experiment reveals consciousness as an entity that cannot be reduced to an epiphenomenon of the material world (which is the materialist position). Imagine a woman named Mary, born and raised in an environment carefully controlled to remove all traces of color. Growing up in this black-and-white world, Mary is trained to become the world's leading scientific expert on the phenomenon of color as described by science: light waves of various wavelengths striking the retina and triggering neural impulses in the brain, which is what materialists tell us is "all that color really is." Once she has learned "everything there is to know about color" (according to the materialists),  the door of her black-and-white controlled environment is unlocked, and Mary is led outside into a garden bursting with flowers of every imaginable hue. The million dollar question: Does she learn anything new? If so, it would appear that the materialist description of reality misses something important: The direct experience that we call "consciousness."

Quantum physics suggests that this mysterious "consciousness," irreducible to anything physical or material, is an integral part of reality. Quantum mechanics describes the universe as made up of probability waves. But in the world as we experience it, these waves have collapsed into particles, and these sub-atomic particles are the basic building blocks of reality. So how did the waves, representing zillions of possibilities, turn into the particles making up space-time as we experience it? The answer, according to the quantum physicists, is that the wave "collapses" into the particle at the moment it is measured by an observer. In other words, physical, material reality is brought into being by an act of consciousness.

It seems unlikely that the entire universe (or the pluriverse, for those who accept evidence for multiple universes) is the creation of merely human consciousness. More likely, we only see a tiny bit of what is "out there." So could there be a GUC (grand unified consciousness) bringing into being everything that exists - and could our isolated individual consciousnesses be tiny fragments of it? Of course there could. And there is. It's called God.

God, the posited superconsciousness, created the universe/pluriverse through an act of thought/will whose material trace is the Big Bang. The purpose, as far as the greatest minds have been able to determine, is for the space-time continuum to give rise to increasing consciousness that seeks to know God, in part by contemplating His signs, which are everywhere in creation. As matter "runs down," as the second law of thermodynamics says it must, consciousness "bootstraps up." In this way, all of creation is going back to God.

The kind of knowledge I am summarizing is more important than scientific knowledge; and just as Galileo's tormentors censored scientific knowledge, today there is a a vast atheist-materialist Inquisition dedicated to suppressing this higher kind of knowledge. The motives for both kinds of suppression are probably the same: The members of a bureaucracy (the church then, the scientific-technological establishment now) are unconsciously driven to suppress competing forms of knowledge that threaten their special privileges and self-esteem.

Earth has been a God-centered planet at least since the rise of Islam as earth's leading civilization, perhaps even since Christianity overthrew pagan Rome. But during the past two centuries, the rise of technopoly in the West has challenged deocentrism -- and created a civilization whose psychic center is meaninglessness and whose material effect is the destruction of the planet. Obviously we need an alternative. But what?

Christianity and Judaism, for all their past glories, today do not seem to have the energy to return the planet to deocentrism. In fact, they may have contributed to the problem: Today's West and its worship of the all-too-human, i.e. the self (God being the ultimate Other who is paradoxically closer to oneself than one's own jugular vein). Judaism is supposed to be about worshiping God and God alone; but it has devolved into the narcissistic self-worship of the "chosen people." Jesus, like all the prophets, taught the worship of God and God alone; but many of his followers have fallen into the worship of Jesus himself, the symbol of their faith -- which amounts to another kind of narcissistic self-worship. And both groups have made the mistake of worshiping through their priesthoods and institutions, rather than going straight to the Source.

Only Islam, as a discursive and practical tradition, seem to have gotten it right enough, and to have persisted with enough energy, to maintain earth as a God-centered planet. That is why the demonic forces have marshaled their hatred and directed it at Islam.

These demonic forces were behind the controlled demolition of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon bombing -- crimes designed to demonize Islam (but which in fact revealed their perpetrators as the demonic ones).

The same demonic forces are visible everywhere where Islamophobes rage. Just watch these "Christians."

Do these "Christians" look like people blessed with the inner peace that comes with a God-centered life, and the knowledge that the purpose of life is contemplation of God's signs and the knowledge of God?

Or is it their Muslim victims who carry on with that kind of inner peace and dignity?

Which group, the Islamophobes or their victims, has a trace of the "peace that passeth understanding" that characterizes people of spiritual knowledge?

Which group is on the way to inheriting a God-centered planet -- and which is raging blindly against the twilight of its own narcissistic illusions?

The death of the West isn't going to be pretty. But does it have to be this ugly!?

Guest blog post by Susan Lindauer, who will be my guest next Wednesday on Truth Jihad Radio. -KB


By Susan Lindauer, Former U.S. Asset covering Iraq and Libya (and 9/11 whistleblower)

For years I was told the terrorist who placed the bomb on board Pan Am 103, known as the Lockerbie bombing, lives about 8 miles from my house, in Fairfax County, Virginia.

His life-time of privilege and protection, gratis of high flyers in U.S. Intelligence, has been a reward for silence on the CIA's involvement in drug trafficking in Lebanon during the 1980s.

As sources go, I was more than a casual observer. From May 1995 until March 2003, I performed as a back channel to Tripoli and Baghdad, supervised by my CIA handler, Dr. Richard Fuisz, who claimed from day one to know the origins of the Lockerbie conspiracy and the identity of the terrorists. http://issuepedia.org/1998-12-04_Susan_Lindauer_Deposition He swore that no Libyan participated in the attack.

Armed with that assurance, our team started talks with Libya's diplomats for the Lockerbie Trial, and I attended over 150 meetings at the Libyan Embassy in New York. After the hand over of Libya's two accused men, our team engaged in a concerted fight to gain permission for Dr. Fuisz to give a deposition about his primary knowledge of the conspiracy, during the Lockerbie Trial. In a surprise twist, the U.S. Federal Judge in Alexandria, Virginia imposed a double seal on a crucial portion of Dr. Fuisz's deposition. The double seal can only be opened by a Scottish Judge. In my opinion, that should be a priority, as testimony hidden by the double seal maps out the whole Lockerbie conspiracy. Most significantly, it identifies 11 terrorists involved in the attack. Dr. Fuisz's testimony could put the whole matter to rest forever.

There's good reason for my confidence. Much to my surprise, during the Lockerbie talks, Dr. Fuisz's allegations of CIA opium running in Lebanon received unusual corroboration. One day, as I left the office of Senator Carol Moseley-Braun on my lunch break, an older spook caught up with me in front of the U.S. Supreme Court. From out of nowhere, he stepped in my path and invited me to lunch. With extraordinary candor, he debriefed me as to what motivated the CIA's actions. I remember it as one battle-hardened old spook sharing the perils of fieldwork with a gung ho young Asset, anxious to get started on great adventures.

It was a morality tale for sure. According to him, the CIA infiltrated opium and heroin trafficking in Lebanon as part of a crisis operation to rescue AP reporter Terry Anderson and 11 other American and British hostages in Beirut, including CNN bureau chief Jeremy Levin and Anglican envoy Terry Waite. The hostage crisis was a legitimate CIA concern. The CIA Station Chief of Beirut, William Buckley, was also kidnapped by Islamic Jihad and brutally tortured to death, his body dumped in the street in front of CIA headquarters. The rescue was protracted and complicated by Lebanon's Civil War—ultimately, Terry Anderson's captivity lasted seven years. Many of the hostages suffered beatings, solitary confinement chained to the floor, and mock executions.

The older spook who refused to identify himself swore that the CIA considered it urgently necessary to try every possibility for recovering the hostages. The concept of infiltration into criminal networks cuts to the murky nature of intelligence itself. Drug enforcement frequently rely on the same strategies. Where the CIA went far wrong was in pocketing some of those heroin profits for itself along the way. The dirty little secret is that the CIA continued to take a percentage cut of opium and heroin production out of Lebanon well into the 1990s.

As for the hostage rescue itself, considering the operation took years to accomplish, it's always been whispered that a corrupted CIA officer enjoying those opium profits might have swallowed reports on the hostages' locations, or otherwise diverted his team in order to protect his narcotics income.

That appears to have become a serious fear at the time, among other U.S. officers jointly involved in the rescue.

In December 1988, infuriated Defense Intelligence agents issued a formal protest, exposing CIA complicity in Middle East heroin trafficking. When teams from both agencies got summoned back to Washington to attend an internal hearing, they boarded Pan Am 103. A wing of militant Hezbollah led by Ahmed Jibril, his nephew Abu Elias, Abu Talb and Abu Nidal took out both teams in order to protect their lucrative cartel.

Classified Defense Intelligence records show that Jibril and Talb had been toying with a conspiracy to bomb a U.S. airplane during the 1988 Christmas holidays anyway. They planned to bomb a U.S. airliner in revenge for the U.S.S. Vincennes, which shot down an Iranian commercial airliner loaded with Hajiis returning from Mecca in July, 1988. However the Defense Intelligence threat to expose their heroin network put the bombing plan into action. Islamic Jihad's ability to discover actionable intelligence on the flight schedules would definitely confirm that somebody at CIA was operating as a double agent, keeping Islamic Jihad a step ahead of the rescue efforts.

That's the dirty truth about Lockerbie. It ain't nothing like you've been told.

Wait a darn moment—I anticipate your confusion. Libya got blamed for the Lockerbie attack. Daddy George Bush told us so! The United Nations imposed sanctions on Libya, demanding that Colonel Moammar Gadhaffi hand over two Libyans for trial. One of the two, Lameen Fhima got acquitted immediately. The other Abdelbasset Megrahi got convicted (on the most flimsy circumstantial evidence that overlooked endless contradictions). Libya paid $2.7 billion in damages—amounting to $10 million per family death— to make the U.N. sanctions go away, and expressed a sort of non-apology for the deaths—while never acknowledging its involvement in the conspiracy.

So Libya was innocent the whole time? In a word, yes.

Don't get me wrong: I have no soft spot for Libya. As an Asset, I saw that no matter the flowing promises of friendship, at heart Libyans hearken to their glory days as Bedouin raiders. It's pathological, not personal. They are deeply tribal and Islamic, which often makes them paranoid and suspicious of outsiders. They have an ancient history of raiding each other's camps, back and forth, stealing livestock, women and children. One of my best diplomatic sources had a tattoo on his wrist, because his grandmother feared he would be kidnapped as a small child (in the 1950s). Libya simply does not have a history of believing that it needs to keep promises to individuals outside their clans. That's not part of their heritage.

That vendetta culture bodes dangerously for the current rebellion. Even after Gadhaffi's gone, in all likelihood these tribal families will continue to exact vengeance on one another. It remains to be seen whether the new government will hide those clashes to protect its image of cohesion and legitimacy to the outside world. In truth, Libyan culture poses a threat to itself most of all.

I don't say that about just any Arab country. I enjoy Arab culture very much. I just know better than to do favors for Gadhaffi. His actions often mask some other agenda.

But the bottom line is that Libya had nothing to do with the bombing of Pan Am 103, which exploded over the town of Lockerbie, Scotland.

We should care about Lockerbie because of the serious problem that it exposed. Opium trafficking out of the Bekaa Valley provides a major source for global heroin production. In turn, the global pipeline of narco-dollars keep militant operations alive world-wide from the Middle East to Indonesia, Colombia, Burma and the Far East.

That's something to fear. We don't have to deploy soldiers to shut it down. With a little creativity, we could attack the bank accounts of these global heroin traffickers and cut off funds for the violence without damaging the local society through warfare. We could strike down two scourges—heroin and terrorism. And the U.S. would not require military action all over the planet to accomplish its goals. Thankfully, there are other ways.

The first step is recognition.

Dissident U.W. Dean Howard Ross, dissident mainstream journalist Bob Koehler on TJ Radio

Truth Jihad Radio Mon. 3/7/11, 1-3 pm Central, American Freedom Radio (archived here.) Call-in number: (402) 237-2525 or post your questions to my Facebook page.

Not everyone who has worked for the man is a benighted, obsequious cog in the death machine. Today I will be speaking to a former academic insider (first hour) and a current mainstream media journalist (second hour), both of whom have behaved honorably under difficult circumstances.

First hour guest: Dr. Howard Ross, former College of Letters and Sciences Dean at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, and staunch opponent of racism and other forms of discrimination in the academy. Dr. Ross has already testified that he was part of the hiring process for a tenure-track Arabic-Humanities job in spring 2006 at the University. He has explained that I was clearly the best candidate for the job, and that I became the only eligible candidate when the other two finalists accepted positions elsewhere; yet I was turned down, the Arabic program was shut down, and federal money for the tenure-track position was returned, for only one reason: Some of the people on the hiring committee were uncomfortable with my views on 9/11 and the so-called war on terror. As Dr. Ross emailed me at the time: "YOU WERE DISCRIMINATED AGAINST." (Note: This happened in spring 2006, before I became a public figure.)

In his previous appearances on my radio show, Dr. Ross had to speak carefully due to his own legal issues with the University. Now that those issues have been resolved, expect him to boldly tell it like it is!

This show launches my spring 2011 academic freedom campaign at the University of Wisconsin. I will be challenging the University to either (A) find at least one qualified scholar to defend the 9/11 Commission and NIST reports in a public debate, or (B) apologize and remove me from their blacklist. I will also be challenging Republican State Rep. Steve Nass, the man responsible for my loss of livelihood, to either defend the 9/11 Commission and NIST reports in a public debate, or to publicly apologize and personally compensate me for the loss of income I have suffered due to his McCarthyist terror campaign against the University.

Second hour: Robert Koehler, a self-described "peace journalist" whose Common Wonders column is syndicated by the Chicago Tribune. Bob Koehler's work stands far above the standard editorial-page drivel dished out by mainstream American newspapers. His recent column You Can't Kill An Idea is a gem. Consider this passage:

Our whole approach to security is built around the assumption that you can kill an idea. Guns, brutality, coercion: This is the common wisdom. It’s sustained by a moral numbness that permeates mainstream culture and is carried along by the corporate media, which perpetuate a facile misunderstanding of the world with the throwaway certitudes embedded in their reportage. Consider, for instance, this stunning little say-nothing sentence that I plucked from an AFP dispatch about NATO’s possible killing of 65 civilians (including 40 children) during a recent strike in Kunar province, Afghanistan: “The accidental deaths of civilians in international military operations is a highly sensitive subject in Afghanistan — particularly in Kunar — which experts and officials say can fuel support for the Taliban-led insurgency.” A reader can glide so smoothly past such military-industrial truisms, hardly noticing that the subject under discussion is flesh and blood, the lives of people who have the bad luck to be living in a war zone. These people, alas, keep getting in our way as we set about the grim task of killing “insurgents,” that is to say, believers in a particular idea.

If more mainstream journalists told truths like these, maybe we wouldn't be killing millions of people in a doomed attempt to kill the ideas of freedom and justice and dignity and honor and self-determination that motivate "insurgents."

William Blum, Jim Duensing on Truth Jihad Radio!

Truth Jihad Radio Fri. 3/4/11, 1-3 pm Central, American Freedom Radio (archived here.) Call-in number: (402) 237-2525 or post your questions to my Facebook page.

First hour: Leading US Empire critic William Blum, "the thinking man's Chomsky." William Blum is the author of Killing Hope: US Military and CIA Interventions Since World War II, which documents an "American holocaust" of millions of people killed and tens of millions who have had their lives ruined by US military and CIA aggression against dozens of nations who never attacked or threatened us. We will discuss topics covered in Blum's latest Anti-Empire Report: the myth of the "benevolent Marshall Plan"; the demonization of Qaddafi (who was innocent of the Lockerbie bombing); James "f*** the Jews" Baker; and much, much more!

Second hour: Libertarian presidential candidate Jim Duensing, founder of the Libertarian 9/11 truth group Libertarians for Justice. In 2009 Jim was tazed and then shot in the back by a rogue cop. He ran for Senate against the Senator from La Casa Nostra, Harry Reid in 2010.

Wed. March 2nd: Eric Walberg from Cairo, Ed Thompson from Wisconsin

Truth Jihad Radio Mon. 2/28/11, 1-3 pm Central, American Freedom Radio (archived here.) Call-in number: (402) 237-2525 or post your questions to my Facebook page.
First hour: Canadian journalist Eric Walberg reporting from Cairo, epicenter of the ongoing Egyptian revolution! Eric Walberg's recent article Egypt/Turkey-Israel: ‘A clean break’ foresees a new era in the Middle East: "It is not Israel backed by the distant US that inherits the Ottoman mantle of hegemony in the Middle East, but some combination of Turkey and Egypt..." Eric Walberg writes for the leading Egyptian newspaper Al-Ahram Weekly and is the author of the forthcoming Postmodern Imperialism: Geopolitics and the Great Games (Clarity Press, 2011).

Second hour: Wisconsin political maverick Ed Thompson! Ed gave us the greatest third-party performance in modern Wisconsin political history when he broke into double-figures running for governor in 2002 as a Libertarian. He served as mayor of Tomah from 2008-2010, and lost his race for State Senate last November by one of the smallest margins in state history, after announcing his diagnosis with terminal cancer six weeks into the race. Ed Thompson is one of a very few politicians who is liked by almost everyone. He is an uncommonly kind, decent, courageous and honorable person who recovered from alcoholism by way of a powerful spiritual experience, and went on to become an accomplished businessman and statesman. Expect the conversation to involve spirituality at least as much as politics.

James Petras, Barbara Honegger on TJ Radio today

Truth Jihad Radio Mon. 2/28/11, 1-3 pm Central, American Freedom Radio (archived here.) Call-in number: (402) 237-2525 or post your questions to my Facebook page.

February 28th is an American day of infamy - the anniversary of the events that led to the Ruby Ridge and Waco mass slaughters of Americans by the government that had sworn to protect them. Today on Truth Jihad Radio, we welcome two of the most important people working to expose federal government corruption in the USA - James Petras and Barbara Honegger.

First hour: James Petras, the leading scholarly critic of Zionist power in America, is the author of War Crimes in Gaza and the Zionist Fifth Column in America. Alongside William Blum and Noam Chomsky, Petras is also a first-rank analyst and critic of US empire. His most recent articles examine Greece's Zionist/bankster puppet Prime Minister, Zionism's attack on Egyptian democracy, and an epitaph for imperial propagandist Daniel Bell. As a leading scholar of labor and resistance movements, Dr. Petras will presumably have something to say about the Wisconsin Revolution.

James Petras is the author of 64 books published in 29 languages, and over 560 articles in professional journals, including the American Sociological Review, British Journal of Sociology, Social Research, Journal of Contemporary Asia, and Journal of Peasant Studies. He has published over 2000 articles in nonprofessional journals such as the New York Times, the Guardian, the Nation, Christian Science Monitor, Foreign Policy, New Left Review, Partisan Review, Temps Moderne, Le Monde Diplomatique, and his commentary is widely carried on the internet. His publishers have included Random House, John Wiley, Westview, Routledge, Macmillan, Verso, Zed Books and Pluto Books.

Second hour: Barbara Honegger, Senior Military Affairs Journalist at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterrey, CA and researcher of the 9/11 and anthrax false-flag attacks. Barbara will:
* follow up on Friday's interview with anthrax expert Barry Kissin;
* explain why the small minority of 9/11 truthers who want to shut down discussion of the Pentagon attack are misguided;
* and explain why she doubts many claims of my recent guest Dmitri Khalezov.
Barbara Honegger exposed the Bush-CIA October Surprise operation that brought down Jimmy Carter, provided Mike Ruppert with much of the "9/11 war games" evidence in Crossing the Rubicon, and has come up with some of the best 9/11 activism ideas, including the Boston Tea Party for 9/11 Truth and the recent Third Beam for WTC-7 event in New York City.

Friday 2/25: Anthrax expert Barry Kissin discusses recent revelations

Truth Jihad Radio Wed. 2/23/11, 1-3 pm Central, American Freedom Radio (archived here.) Call-in number: (402) 237-2525 or post your questions to my Facebook page.

First hour: Kevin has to pray/at a masjid far away/so a very special re-run/will brighten up your day!

Second hour: Kevin returns from the masjid to interview Barry Kissin, author of The Truth About the Anthrax Attack and Its Cover-Up. A leading expert on the 2001 anthrax attack, which even US authorities admit was a false-flag event designed to incite Islamophobia, Barry Kissin will analyze the recent National Academy of Science report casting doubt on the FBI's evidence against suicided patsy Bruce Ivins. (Note: Barbara Honegger, another anthrax case expert, will join Truth Jihad Radio on Monday.)


by Barry Kissin

We didn’t need the National Academy of Sciences to tell us that the Government’s case against Bruce Ivins is a sham.

Almost a year ago (on March 6, 2010), I began a column: “The Bruce Ivins case is a trap. If the powers that be manage to keep us occupied with analyzing and reanalyzing the numerous and glaring weaknesses in the contrived case against Ivins, they succeed in diverting attention away from [the true source of the anthrax attacks].”

The best evidence points at one source – a sector of our own military-industrial-intelligence complex – the entity President Eisenhower warned about 40 years ago. Ignoring his warning has enabled this entity to grow and fester.

On covering up the true source of the anthrax attacks, NAS almost entirely cooperated. This is most significantly illustrated in what NAS had to say about silicon. Silicon has always been a key ingredient in the U.S. method of weaponizing anthrax. Though no one says it, this central issue of silicon in Amerithrax is about whether the attack anthrax must have come out of our own up-until-then secret anthrax weaponization projects.

The NAS: “Silicon was present in the letter powders but there was no evidence of intentional addition of silicon-based dispersants.” The problem is that the NAS relied on only one source of information about this, namely the FBI.

Here’s a better source: “‘If there is that much silicon, it had to have been [intentionally] added," [said] Jeffrey Adamovicz, [former scientist] at Fort Detrick … He added that the silicon in the attack anthrax could have been added via a large fermentor—which Battelle and other labs use." (Wall St. Journal, 1/24/10).

The NAS: “[N]o silicon was detected on the outside surface of spores where a [weaponizing] dispersant would reside. Instead, significant amounts of silicon were detected within the spore coat of some samples.”

It is true that there was “no silicon detected on the outside surface,” but it is false that this is “where a dispersant would reside” – that is a surpassed technology. The most modern anthrax-weaponizing technology has been referred to throughout the duration of the Amerithrax investigation by sources like Richard Spertzel, former Deputy Commander of USAMRIID, Kay Mereish, the Chief of Biological Planning and Operations at the UN Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission, and Science magazine.

This most modern anthrax-weaponizing technology precisely situates “significant amounts of silicon” on the “spore coat,” just what the NAS found and obligingly disregarded. In other words, the anthrax was indeed intentionally weaponized with the most modern (advanced) anthrax-weaponizing technology.

What else? No one can deny that thousands upon thousands of spores passed through the pores of the paper making up two of the anthrax letters’ envelops, enough to kill by inhalational anthrax two postal workers, and that when the envelope addressed to Senator Daschle was opened in the Hart Senate Office Building, the spores escaped and disbursed like a gas.

So who had this technology? Before the anthrax attacks, secret anthrax weaponization projects were being conducted by the CIA at Battelle’s labs in West Jefferson, Ohio and the DIA in labs managed and operated by Battelle at the Army’s Dugway Proving Ground (in Utah). Both facilities had received anthrax spores from Bruce Ivin’s flask RMR-1029.

“[T]o create anthrax in a dry aerosol form of the sort that can be dispersed through the air is a long and difficult process involving a lot of highly specialized machinery.” (NY Times, 2/24/10).

This was not the work of any lone nut. The anthrax attacks were the product of an advanced domestic weaponization program, and the government cover-up persists.

Wed. 2/23: Interfaith Dialogue with Raymond Schwab, Sander Hicks

Truth Jihad Radio Wed. 2/23/11, 1-3 pm Central, American Freedom Radio (archived here.) Call-in number: (402) 237-2525 or post your questions to my Facebook page.

First hour: Raymond Schwab, a student of Evangelical Judaism and a practitioner of Evangelical Christianity, says those nasty Muslims make life difficult for Christians - especially missionaries - in Muslim countries...and tests Kevin's patience by saying terrible things about the Prophet Muhammad (SAAS) and the Qur'an. Kevin blasts Christian/European imperialism and colonialism, and prays for Raymond's forgiveness, especially since Raymond has walked the walk for 9/11 truth.
Second hour: Sander Hicks, a Christian in the Catholic Worker tradition who is currently exploring Buddhist meditation, offers an update on current events, and discusses his "Slingshot to the Juggernaut" Truth Party national tour, which passes through Madison, WI this Sunday 2/27, 1 pm, Wil-Mar Center, 953 Jennifer St.
