From 9/11 To Syria: Inescapable Truths.

By Jerry Alatalo

“The man who wishes to remain faithful to justice must make himself continually unfaithful to inexhaustibly triumphant injustice.”

– CHARLES PEGUY (1873-1914) French writer

oil wellAlphabet Many have come to accept the theory that overthrowing  Bashar al-Assad in Syria was one of the objectives of those who planned, facilitated and destroyed World Trade Center Buildings 1 and 2, along with the lesser-known Building 7, on September 11, 2001. Now that Congress has overturned President Barack Obama’s veto of the JASTA bill allowing legal action by surviving family members of those who perished on 9/11 against Saudi Arabia, there has been a renewal of hope and optimism – a sense that a crack in the dam of coverup has developed – among those who believe the perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks have never become identified and prosecuted.

Immediately after the Twin Towers were hit by airplanes, before the Towers fell or any semblance of investigation had begun, news reports went out over the airwaves reflecting commentary by politicians and terrorism experts asserting Osama Bin Laden was behind and guilty of the attacks. Instead of sending a small force of special operations personnel to Afghanistan to capture Bin Laden, the Bush-Cheney administration carried out a war against the entire Afghan nation – learned later so to control highly valuable energy pipelines and mineral resources in the region, as well as overseeing massive re-cultivation of poppy fields and Afghanistan’s lucrative heroin trade.

Americans were then subjected to an organized (unfortunately, successful) propaganda campaign by the Bush-Cheney administration that resulted in 70% holding the false perception that Iraq’s Saddam Hussein was somehow connected to the 9/11 attacks, that Hussein had weapons of mass destruction threatening American cities with mushroom clouds, and leading to Washington’s lawmakers voting for the 2003 invasion of Iraq. The Bush-Cheney administration, Tony Blair in the United Kingdom, and other European nation heads went along with the lies, estimates are that over 1,000,000 Iraqis perished, and Iraq after being bombed to rubble has never recovered.

Barack Obama became president in 2008 and the next nation targeted for overthrow was Libya under Muammar Gaddafi. The Obama-Biden administration, in a “successful” manner similar to its predecessor Bush-Cheney group with Iraq, convinced the United Nations Security Council to establish a no-fly zone over Libya with the argument that Gaddafi’s slaughter of his own citizens was “imminent”, and only a matter of hours away. The claims that Gaddafi was on the verge of slaughtering the Libyan people were proven to be lies, thousands of Libyans perished  under NATO bombing in 2011, the nation’s infrastructure became destroyed, and Libya is now commonly described as a “basket case”.

Later, released emails of the U.S. Secretary of State in 2011 Hillary Clinton revealed the real reasons for Libya’s destruction and Gaddafi’s murder. One of the factors was control of Libya’s energy resources and another was Gaddafi’s plan to establish a new currency for the African continent. Understanding that oil was one of the prime motivators for those who engineered the bombing of Libya is easy enough; it’s safe to say the majority of wars in mankind’s history have been about natural resources and/or land/territory. Getting one’s head around the implications of an African currency and new, competitive monetary system involves higher level complexity of thought to grasp and/or imagine the powerful persons and groups involved in the direct decision-making that led to Libya’s military destruction.

Next after Libya in the line of military fire of the powerful persons and groups at the control of geopolitical decision-making came Syria. Some hold the theory that the main reason for attacks on Syria since 2011 until today has to do with natural gas pipelines delivering massive quantities of energy supply to European markets. The nations of Qatar and Iran share an immensely large natural gas field between them, and both proposed running a multi-billion dollar pipeline across Syria to Europe to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Assad rejected the Qatar offer and accepted the Iranian, plans were drafted, contracts written and signed on an Iran-Iraq-Syria project, then the violence in Syria began to dramatically escalate.

Other observers believe the Qatar-Iran natural gas pipeline competition is a real and significant factor for explaining the warring in Syria, but that broader regional factors having to do with national political structures in Middle East-North Africa are also necessary to consider. Maintaining the monarchies in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, etc. and holding off serious democratic reform that transforms the region politically is also an important factor, among many others in a range from less to more influential, for persons engaged in analysis.

Suffice to say Bashar al-Assad, like Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi before him, has experienced the same “demonization” coming from the Obama administration, European governments, and Western corporate media since 2011. An unbalanced, concentrated, organized strategy of attack which portrays Assad as a “ruthless dictator… killing his own people.. barrel-bombing” became developed then implemented to sway public opinion into favoring major military actions leading to his removal/overthrow from power. The main, important-to-consider aspect of the strategy is the intentional repeated focusing on the Syrian government and Assad, while minimizing or even excluding any focus on the estimated 350,000 paid mercenary terrorists who’ve entered Syria since 2011.

That exclusion and/or minimization of terrorism and terrorists operating in Syria since 2011 was verified in the first presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Anyone who watched and listened to that debate looking for the candidates’ positions on the situation in Syria became completely disappointed – Syria was never brought up for discussion, at any point, during the entire course of their exchange. What has developed in Syria is of major historic significance and could hardly become explained away as “not of sufficient importance for discussion in presidential debate(s)”. Most shocking and disturbing are increasing revelations that the terrorists who’ve attacked Syria and its people for 5 1/2 years have received their entire support from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, Israel, the United States, United Kingdom, France and other governments. That describes in the mind of any sane and reasonable man or woman war crimes – state-sponsored terrorism.

In the video that follows attorney Daniel Sheehan describes crimes of an entirely different, higher magnitude and nature – in this talk referring specifically to 9/11 – reaching a level of consequence that “shakes the very legal foundation itself”. The accumulated crimes of state-sponsored terrorism committed against Syria – its people, military, government, property and infrastructure – are arguably in that category, but different from 9/11 in that the crimes have become identified, revealed, and acknowledged long before 15 years have elapsed. Events on 9/11 and in Syria could be described or visualized as two ends of a continuum of major historic, illegal and deceptive events on Earth.

When referring to 9/11, Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and other crime scenes which originated from the events of September 11, 2001, one finds a period of (15) fifteen years where humanity has experienced crimes of such size that international law’s foundation itself has become shaken, at risk, under attack, and in urgent need of defense. How the human collective deals with these profoundly worrying circumstances and comes to an agreement on moving forward with a firm foundation of truth is possibly the greatest challenge of this generation.

9/11: The origin of war in the 21st century

While many people are still unaware that a third skyscraper – Building 7 – collapsed on 9/11, those who’ve seen videos of its collapse nearly unanimously describe it as a “controlled demolition”. It is worth noting that Building 7 is commonly referred to in the 9/11 truth community (those who’ve done any research to speak of on 9/11) as “the smoking gun”, but that the official 9/11 Commission Report didn’t even mention Building 7.

The collapse of the South Tower has some similarity to Building 7 when observed in that one notices at the initial phase of collapse a physical event which seems to make impossible the tower’s total collapse. That event is the top 1/4 to 1/5 (estimated) of the structure seemingly “breaking off” and moving sideways. While not having any expertise or training in engineering, simple observation leads one to offer the suggestion that the top section, which clearly starts falling away from the rest of the structure, at some point in its ongoing out-and-away momentum would have ceased having any further weight-bearing effect on the collapse of floors below. In other words, it seems the South Tower’s collapse should have become ultimately partial – with perhaps 1/3 to 1/2 of the structure still standing – as opposed to collapsing completely down to the 1st floor.

Certainly the over 2,000 architects and engineers belonging to the group Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth have taken great pains in studying every aspect of the South Tower’s collapse, and “scientifically presumptuous” would entail the correct term for describing this layperson’s simple observation. Details on the collapse of the Twin Towers and Building 7 are only a few of the thousands any legal team determined to bring charges against defendants will need to comb through in preparation for their case.

Veteran attorney involved in many of America’s most important legal cases Daniel Sheehan talked to those attending the Justice In Focus symposium September 11, 2016 in New York City about 9/11 legal options and strategies.  In the highly informative, insightful and historically revealing keynote address, Mr. Sheehan provided valuable descriptions of facts surrounding the cases he’s fought, in particular the difficulties, roadblocks and opposition attorneys face when engaging in highly politicized complex court battles.

Among the many astonishing points made by Mr. Sheehan was his mention that during the Karen Silkwood case the smuggling of 40 pounds of plutonium from the Kerr-McGee plant in Oklahoma to Israel became revealed, and that the plutonium was to become divided with portions going to the Shah of Iran and apartheid South Africa. That astounding set of facts became suppressed by the presiding judge, therefore concealed from the American public – because Sheehan failed to prove that Karen Silkwood was a member of the black race.

In a real sense, the world has traveled a circle that started on 9/11 and effectively ends in Syria. Humanity now has no other alternative but to face inescapable truths.

9/11 Justice: ‘Biggest Legal Hill Ever.’

By Jerry Alatalo

Mount Rainier - 1Alphabet Renowned legal expert/attorney, professor and author Daniel Sheehan was one of the keynote speakers in New York City over the weekend (September 10-11) at the Justice In Focus 9/11 symposium. Mr. Sheehan shared details of major historic American cases he’d participated in and/or led, to provide relevant examples of difficulties and challenges the men and women pushing any effort to prosecute the potential criminals responsible for 9/11 will run up against.

From facing aggressive criticism by corporate media, to politically appointed judges who will block efforts for 9/11 justice, to probable near-endless resources available to individuals named as defendants, men and women lawyers on any team working for justice after 15 years will need their legal plans, tactics, and details in proper order – their legal “ducks in a row”.

A legal effort to prosecute individuals responsible for the crimes of 9/11 represents a higher level of seriousness than normal petty political crimes, and another category of scandal or crime involving national politics/government. The extremely rare events of 9/11 are criminal offenses for which existing legal institutions were never designed to handle.

To help illustrate the extraordinary legal nature and seriousness of the crimes committed on 9/11, Mr. Sheehan shares the words of President Jimmy Carter administration official Gary Sick, where Sick, referring to the Iran-Contra scandal, quotes a French poet: “..(crimes) so grave that they cause the very foundation of the law itself to tremble.”

Mr. Sheehan shared more words written by Gary Sick: “We know what to do with someone caught appropriating funds, but when confronted with evidence of a systematic attempt to undermine the very democratic political system itself, we all recoil in a general failure of nerve.”

In what was a very informative, revealing and forceful talk, Daniel Sheehan ended by telling men and women seriously considering lawsuits against the planners of 9/11 that, once begun: “..they better not stop, better not delay, but must be ready to go all the way with this.”

He also pointed out any 9/11 case would end up in front of the U.S. Supreme Court, making clear potential legal actions involve extremely high-level litigation, a heightened level of scrutiny, more attempts by judges to dismiss, and the necessity to “cross every ‘T’ and dot every ‘I’ .”

More people are becoming aware of the individuals and/or groups behind the 9/11 attacks as the U.S. “Deep State”. Of the remaining candidates in the 2016 presidential election, only Dr. Jill Stein and Ajamu Baraka of the Green Party have called for a new, independent investigation of 9/11.

Kennedy, Bush, Sanders, And The Organization.

By Jerry Alatalo

“The power to destroy the world by the use of nuclear weapons is a power that cannot be used – we cannot accept the idea of such a monstrosity… The time has now come for the nations of the world to submit to the just requisition of their conduct by international law.”

No More War! 1958

– LINUS PAULING (1901-1994) American scientist, Nobel Prize for Chemistry 1954, Nobel Peace Prize 1962

HighwayAlphabet Because a Soviet naval officer on a diesel-powered submarine off the coasts of Cuba and Florida during the Cuban missile crisis said “no”, nuclear war between the United States and then Soviet Union was thankfully averted. “Dodging a bullet” fails to describe fully the supreme level of Earthly catastrophe which would have occurred had he joined with two fellow submarine officers, whose unanimous agreement was necessary to launch nuclear torpedoes at U.S. naval forces who discovered and surrounded them.

People can find the sobering, astonishing, historically important event recreated on film in the docudrama “The Man Who Saved the World” on YouTube and elsewhere on the internet. Those paying attention will notice worrisome similarities between the Cuban Missile Crisis of the early 1960’s of John Kennedy (1917-assassinated 1963) and Nikita Khrushchov (1894-1971) and 2016, of Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin. The phrases “nuclear war” and “World War 3” are appearing increasingly in published pieces by respected scholars and experts, so it’s perhaps instructive to hear Professor Danny Sheehan of University of California-Santa Cruz share his detailed, mostly unknown version of the utterly remarkable times, history and circumstances surrounding American President John F. Kennedy.

Unfortunately, in the over 50 years since the Cuban Missile Crisis humanity has yet to agree to abolish nuclear weapons from the face of the Earth, and civilization remains under threat of an unimaginable potentiality described by American General Douglas MacArthur (1880-1964) in an address on July 5, 1961: “Global war has become a Frankenstein’s monster threatening to destroy both sides… It contains now only the germ of a double suicide.”

During this lecture, Professor Sheehan describes how the same General MacArthur proposed detonation of 20-25 nuclear bombs on the border between Korea and China during the Korean War when MacArthur was chief of U.S. military operations in that misunderstood, under-reported conflict. Historical events like this, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and a surprising number of nuclear close calls makes it important for people to learn the facts, conditions and causes present in times when humanity faced nuclear annihilation – especially those not found in school history books, and quite possibly never entering the awareness of millions in their lifetimes.

The words of Spanish-born American philosopher George Santayana (1863-1952) are eternally relevant, and perhaps no more vital than today: “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Mr. Sheehan, a graduate of Harvard Law and Divinity Schools and famous for his central legal roles during the Iran-Contra, Watergate, Karen Silkwood and other major trials, presents and discusses an organizational chart of persons and groups involved in essential, disturbing, central actions affecting history from World War 2 through 1963, culminating with the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

One sees a relationship in the organization chart presented in Professor Sheehan’s lecture to the ongoing 2016 presidential race. One can imagine what a similar chart clarifying the groups and individuals affecting world events today would look like, especially the chart’s updating were Hillary Clinton’s $225,000 Wall Street giant Goldman Sachs speech transcripts to become published. One wonders if Ms. Clinton’s worldview more closely aligns with John Kennedy when he died – or if her political philosophy mirrors the powerful forces Kennedy opposed.

It’s beneficial for the American people to not only consider the worldview of Hillary Clinton compared to Kennedy’s at the time of his death, but to also consider the worldviews of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump as contrasted or aligned with Kennedy’s. Given the near unobstructed path of Clinton and Trump compared to the obstacles placed in front of Sanders since his announcement over a year ago, it seems fair to say the Kennedy worldview is closer to that of Sanders.

How many men, women and children are aware that Kennedy and Khrushchov conducted secret talks through letters delivered between Washington, D.C. and Moscow by American writer and peace advocate Norman Cousins (1912-1990), and that the two world leaders had agreed to abolish each nation’s nuclear weapons? Was it Kennedy’s decision to move toward nuclear disarmament which unleashed the rage of those who reacted by murdering him? For those who’ve delved into the Kennedy assassination it’s clear a number of forces and/or individuals held a variety of deeply held motivations for somehow stopping Kennedy’s planned actions as president.

For those whose awareness of the 1963 Kennedy assassination stops at high school history books describing Lee Harvey Oswald as the lone assassin, Professor Sheehan’s lecture will certainly come as an eye opening, greatly surprising, perception-transforming experience. May understanding history’s greatest hard lessons result in taking history’s wisest actions today.

Democracy, Evolution, Science And Spirit.

by Jerry Alatalo

“That our planet is the one and only planet where life has emerged would be a ridiculous assumption… Even if only one in a hundred of the ten billion suitable planets has actually got life well under way, there would be more than 100 million such planets. No, it is presumptuous to think that we are alone.”

– HARLOW SHAPLEY (1885-1972) American astronomer

Galaxy2Alphabet After the people of Greece held their historic referendum and voted “No” to increased austerity measures, many around the world are thinking about what the vote means for not only Greece but for humanity. What was particularly remarkable about the “No” vote, 61% to 39% “Yes”, was that the people of Greece overcame a relentless corporate media campaign meant to instill fear and convince them to vote “yes”, and in so doing provided an amazing example of solidarity-based courage for the rest of humanity.

The referendum in Greece is one illustration among an increasing number of events and situations around the Earth in recent years pointing to positive change or evolution. Some would disagree with the interpretation that humanity is going through rapid change and intensification of evolutionary, beneficial movement. So, those who see what is fundamentally a spiritual evolution occurring before their eyes stand amazed, while those who see the same-old, same-old find little to get excited about. However one analyzes current world events, citizens of Greece taking a stand against historic economic and financial exploitation by small groups of wealthy elites is something that is extraordinary.

The aspect of the Greek referendum which could rightly be described as awe-inspiring is the fact that future Earthly events resulting from the vote may in a relatively short time bring about actions creating a better, more just and fair world which many were firmly convinced “won’t happen in our lifetimes”.  The situation in Greece and the government’s dramatic negotiations over the last months with the so-called Troika have gained/attracted the attention of millions of men and women from all corners of the planet, and in effect has resulted in perhaps the greatest collective education and revealing of how international finance works the world has ever seen.

The extent to which men and women across the Earth have gained awareness and knowledge of economics and finance is huge and unprecedented. Because of that increased awareness, produced with a combination of high interest (pun not intended) and an avalanche of analytical reporting, the belief by people that other economic/banking models besides the “status-quo” are both possible and ready for implementation – plus more fundamentally just and beneficial – has grown in large measure. And as that belief generated by awareness and knowledge grows, so too does the will and intent to universalize good changes.

Most of the Earth’s people wish for the most fair, decent and just economic/financial models available to become implemented. That wish stems from a universally inherent, present-from-birth human quality of compassion for one’s fellow men, women and children, suffering through economic downturn, financial stress, wars and violence, and other less than ideal life situations.

From Daniel Sheehan’s perspective, that compassion is one part of the emergent, evolutionary next step for our human family.

Beyond sight, smell, hearing, taste and touch, humanity is on the brink of discovering, developing and experiencing a 6th faculty, profoundly evolutionary in its essential nature. This 6th faculty in basic terms is the ability to sense/perceive the creation as one unified field where everything is interconnected, and including an automatic knowing of whether actions are in harmony with, or disharmonious to, the universe. Furthermore, science will join with spirituality upon the realization/understanding that human intentions are responsible for manifesting material reality.

Daniel Sheehan is a Harvard Law and Divinity School graduate, and was an attorney working on some of America’s most important legal cases – including the Watergate break-in which led to Richard Nixon’s resignation, the Pentagon Papers leading to a swifter end to the Vietnam War, Iran-Contra during the Reagan-Bush administration, Karen Silkwood’s murder case related to nuclear scandal, journalists’ right to protect confidential sources, and many more. More recently, Mr. Sheehan, in response to unconstitutional provisions of NDAA legislation, has advocated for establishment of “Constitutional Defense Zones” in cities, counties and states across the United States to protect citizens’ constitutional rights.

When Jimmy Carter won the 1976 presidential election, Carter asked then CIA Director (under Gerald Ford) George H.W. Bush for all the information he had on extraterrestrial life and UFOs. Jimmy Carter had admitted to seeing a UFO while Governor of Georgia. Bush told President-elect Carter that he’d accommodate his wish, only if Carter kept Bush on as CIA Director. Carter had someone else in mind, and Bush declined to produce the requested information.

Daniel Sheehan’s legal reputation led to him being asked to contribute to/join Carter’s effort, he accepted, then he was eventually granted, to his surprise, permission to look at and investigate the government’s classified UFO/extraterrestrial information contained in “Project Blue Book”. He entered a room where the materials were on a table, and he describes finding 1950’s photographs of a crashed UFO where Air Force personnel were investigating the crash site. Since then Daniel Sheehan has become more deeply involved in the extraterrestrial issue, to the point of regularly speaking at conferences like the one in the video below from a few months ago.

Scientists estimate that our Milky Way galaxy alone contains 500 million star systems. Scientists estimate around 500 billions of galaxies in the universe, and that each of those 500 billion galaxies contain up to 500 million star systems.

After viewing many of his talks, including 17 nearly 2-hour lectures to students as Professor of World Politics at University of California-Santa Cruz, Mr. Sheehan’s knowledge of history, political events, extraterrestrial/UFO research, and spirituality is absolutely outstanding. Any man or woman interested in learning a large number of often disturbing, often inspiring, little-known facts and revelations about important historical events and conditions will find it difficult to find a better source than Daniel Sheehan. He is one of the world’s most profound thinkers and immensely articulate.
