Fetzer On Fire…

by Jerry Alatalo

“But life is short and truth works far and lives long: let us speak the truth.”

– ARTHUR SCHOPENHAUER (1788-1860) German philosopher

earthblog2After publishing “Nobody Died at Sandy Hook”, editor of the book retired Professor Jim Fetzer and fellow contributing academics and researchers have carried out what could be described as a “big move”, to use a chess metaphor. While having spent only a moderate amount of time looking into Sandy Hook since 2012, there are a few observations which might help in resolving this issue once and for all.

First, this writer doesn’t have any sons or daughters, but if he did, and his son or daughter were one of those killed in the mass shooting, after hearing about this book titled “Nobody Died at Sandy Hook I would immediately seek an attorney and sue the editor and contributors. I would swiftly sue: a) because nobody will get away with smearing the memory of my child, and b) because nobody will get away with smearing the memory of all the children and teachers killed, smearing the reputations of my family and friends, along with those of every surviving family member or friend.

In essence, publication of “Nobody Died at Sandy Hook” could be described as a “showdown at the OK Corral” moment of truth about the controversy surrounding Sandy Hook. Whatever the consequences of publishing this book, in a certain sense it is a positive development for it forces exposure of what really happened, leading to either disrepute and shattered reputations of those who publicly state Sandy Hook was a “false flag” or confirmation of a government manipulation of public perceptions. If those who proclaim “false flag” and “nobody died” are wrong and the reports from government and the mainstream media are correct, then one would logically predict an upcoming tsunami of lawsuits from the families of those who lost loved ones, directed at the book’s editor Jim Fetzer and his fellow contributors.

On this controversial issue, what seems most worthy of tracking in the days ahead is whether such lawsuits become initiated or not. If many survivors’ families, either alone or in a joint legal action, move ahead against the people responsible for publication of the book, then one can logically conclude Sandy Hook was a real mass-shooting where children and teachers perished. If no lawsuits against the book’s creators become initiated in the days ahead, then, well, “Houston, we have a problem.”

Second, one might consider the negative consequences of failing to get to the absolute truth on the controversial issue of Sandy Hook. Whether one holds the view that Sandy Hook was a real mass shooting or was a “false flag”, the number of American men and women in either “camp” is not insignificant. Irresolution of the issue – failure to reach to the point of total and irrefutable acknowledgment by all people what actually happened that day – leaves many with corrosive and divisive, separation-generating perceptions among the citizens of the United States.

Using one’s imagination, one asks “how much cumulative damage across the United States to family relations, personal reputations and friendships has occurred since 2012 due to continuing talk or debate between people holding views ranging across the entire spectrum from completely misinformed to highly informed about Sandy Hook?” This writer asserts that the damage done since 2012 in all the various manifestations associated with differences among people about what really happened is greatly under-appreciated and under-estimated, and points to the obvious need for addressing the matter and settling it once and for all.

The same view applies regarding the enormously consequential events of September 11, 2001 and other major issues, as 9/11 remains literally the elephant in the room crying out for a new investigation. It’s important to once and for all discover and expose the truth, and thus correct widely held, continuing, false and divisive perceptions – irrespective of which “side” one comes down on. Fundamentally and importantly, such matters call for much more powerful leadership efforts to reveal the truth, including a greater appreciation and/or focus on bringing an end to large numbers of citizens’ hanging on to false views.

****

Without his regular partner on “False Flag Weekly News” Kevin Barrett, Mr. Fetzer presents a number of reports during the 50-minute broadcast. As a long-time researcher on major and often controversial world events, and after publication recently of the book about Sandy Hook, one senses that he has become somewhat re-energized or rejuvenated,  perhaps due to his belief the book has created major shock waves and gone a long way toward forcing the truth out in the open.

Seeing it’s World Series of baseball time, it’s fair to compare Mr. Fetzer’s revived enthusiasm to those players who’ve “saved their best” for the maximum competition and greatest prize in the world of professional baseball. One envisages him stepping into the batter’s box for the “truth team”, facing down the opposing team’s pitchers throwing 100 mile per hour false information, and promptly smashing home run after home run over the fence.

The great thing about athletic contests is that everyone in the stands has their eyes on the game like witnesses then able to testify to the truth about what actually happened on the field. Whether its 50,000 fans in the ballpark or millions watching the game on television, everyone knows exactly what happened on the field.

Some can recall the 1992 movie “A League of Their Own” about a women’s professional baseball league starring Tom Hanks, Madonna, Rosie O’Donnell and Gina Davis, and the scene where one of the girl players starts weeping over something which occurred in the game.

In a line which has remained in the memories of all who saw thew film, Tom Hanks as manager of the team scolds her and exclaims, “there’s no crying in baseball!” Perhaps an updated version of that famous movie line fits into this post on getting to the truth about major world events and issues… There’s no lying in baseball.

From back in the days of participating in baseball, when a hitter went on a streak where it seemed opposition pitchers couldn’t get him out everyone would acknowledge the hitter was “on a tear”. In this edition of “False Flag Weekly News” one senses Jim Fetzer has surpassed that baseball hitter’s metaphor “on a tear”. With respect to reporting and analyzing the truth on world events, viewers see Mr. Fetzer “on fire”.

So it goes. And how was your week?…

9/11: ‘We Need The Truth In Order To Heal.’

by Jerry Alatalo

RethinkAlphabet With Friday September 11 being the 14th anniversary of 9/11, it is important to note that in the United States of America there is no statute of limitations for the crime of murder.

For those who read and interpret that statement as a suggestion that there are people who carried out 9/11 who up until today “got away with it”, there are mass murderers walking free, and that a new, real investigation of 9/11 is still necessary after fourteen years – their supposition is 100% correct.

The increasing number of men and women in America and around the world who’ve come to either have serious doubts about or flatly reject the narrative pushed forward by the official 9/11 Commission Report will become very active this week of the anniversary. With the overwhelming surplus of disturbing facts unearthed and compiled  by researchers, experts and distinguished men and women from nations around the Earth in the years since September 11, 2001, there are now profound reasons for people to merit demand for an independent investigation.

What makes the case for a real investigation so compelling, and next to impossible to ignore any longer, is the high-quality people who are calling for one. The large number of men and women advocating another look at 9/11 who are university educated, highly respected in their fields and communities, completely rational and sober – have proven their character, and achieved the status to have their voices heard on this grave matter. They’ve come to fully understand that 9/11 is extremely important and must finally become thoroughly addressed.

What is important about the great majority of people calling for an investigation is that their intellectual and psychological health places them in a class the furthest distance one can imagine from what some label as “conspiracy theorists” or “tin foil hats”. The woman psychologist who appears toward the end of “9/11: Explosive Evidence” was likely speaking for Americans, but could just as easily have spoken for humanity when with great insight she said “We need the truth in order to heal”.

The film delivers a number of outstanding statements providing incontrovertible reasons for a new investigation of 9/11, but that woman psychologist’s profound statement is perhaps even more important than them all. Anyone who has the average amount of awareness of the events of September 11, 2001 knows how destructive have been subsequent events in the years since 9/11 occurred – and how varied have been the giant negative consequences on all levels from personal to global.

From personal psychological trauma experienced by people upon learning the deceptions which occurred on that history-changing day to the millions who’ve perished in wars based on those deceptions, and at all harm-inflicting levels between, the cumulative physical, mental and spiritual damage is unprecedented in its various major dimensions. That with regard to 9/11 “we need the truth to heal” cannot be denied, so the time is now to get to the truth and allow the urgently required planetary healing to begin.

It is impossible to overstate how important it is to carry out an independent investigation and get to the truth about what happened on 9/11. Continuing to ignore the powerful evidence that’s been uncovered is analogous to a person ignoring evidence of a life-threatening cancerous condition. The people of the United States and the world, especially the world’s honorable political, spiritual, academic, military and business leaders, must speak out on this truly global form of cancer/disease now. Honorable leaders and all honorable men and women must demand truth to prevent conditions from deteriorating any further.

The people responsible for unimaginable high crimes committed on September 11, 2001 have yet to become identified, prosecuted, punished and stopped from carrying out more crimes of the same violent, horrendously destructive type. It’s been fourteen years, and people have no idea what the number of repetitions, what amount of other criminal harm, has occurred in that time.

Although war criminals of 9/11 haven’t been caught and punished in fourteen years, more and more people around the world are becoming aware of the deception and realizing how urgent is the effort to get to the truth. As each day passes and the evidence continues being ignored, the more urgent becomes empowering the global effort to force leaders and decision-makers to act and arrange the investigation.

Of all the major historical events of deception white-washed, manipulated to hide the facts, or otherwise buried so preventing access to truth by the people, 9/11 rises to a level by itself which simply cannot be ignored and allowed to slip incrementally, while time marches on, unresolved into history. It was, and it remains, an existential event. 9/11 as historical event has such high singular importance that a self-asserting sane, moral, wise and caring civilization can only respond with absolute righteousness.

A Message From Buenos Aires.

Posted on August 18, 2014

by Jerry Alatalo

“The history of the race, and each individual’s experience, are thick with evidence that a truth is not hard to kill and that a lie told well is immortal.”

– MARK TWAIN

366-1While reading an article about Argentina’s financial problems in dealing with a “vulture fund” run by billionaire Paul Singer, a reference was made to another recent article written by Argentinian Adrian Salbuchi. In Mr. Salbuchi’s article he suggested a good part of Argentina’s debt was in the form called “odious”. An example of nations’ odious debt is when corrupt  leaders take multi-billion dollar loans from the World Bank, International Monetary Fund or one of the “too-big-to-fail” mega-banks while knowing the loan proceeds will never be used for benefitting the people living in the particular country.

So-called third world or developing countries have been the victims of large-scale predatory lending in recent history, with unfortunate consequences for citizens but good results for the small number of wealthy who become the recipients of national debt loan proceeds. For those who’ve never heard of John Perkins, or read his geopolitical bestseller “Confessions of An Economic Hit Man”, finding his interviews and reading the book will offer an excellent analysis of how odious debt has come to strangle the economies and living standards of many nations.

With some familiarity of Adrian Salbuchi, and some time passed since last listening to his interviews, it was good to find he uploads videos on his YouTube channel. Around a month ago he uploaded a video which recorded a TV program broadcasted from Buenos Aires as a special English-language production. The program title is “False Flags: Past, Present, and Future” – the subject of which will most likely never go out over the airwaves from U.S. corporate media outlets into the living rooms of American citizens.

In simple terms, a “false flag” event is one where a nation carries out an unexpected attack on itself or others then blames another country/group for it. False flags are engineered to manipulate public opinion in favor of escalated military actions or economic warfare/sanctions against the blamed nation(s) or group(s).

Before getting into the program contents, perhaps it’s worth noting that the term “false flag” has come into the awareness of a great number of men and women around the world since the rise of the internet. Before the internet became popular –  and increasingly the source of news for people who no longer find corporate media credible – if one mentioned the phrase “false flag” they’d find responses such as “what is a false flag?” or “what are you talking about?” But now nearly everyone knows what a false flag is; the phrase has become part of everyday. common language.

“False Flags: Past, Present, and Future” begins with a video clip of President Barack Obama at a press conference during a recent European conference on nuclear weapons safety. In his address, Mr. Obama notes his concern about a “nuclear weapon going off in Manhattan”, which Mr. Salbuchi then suggests may be hinting a possible large-scale false flag. One may be reminded of Barack Obama’s press address some months before the controversial August 2013 chemical attacks in Syria, which nearly resulted in a bombing campaign on that country, where he warned Syria’s using chemical weapons would be crossing a “red line”.

The August 2013 Syrian chemical attacks are now seen by many as a “false flag” event designed to bring about a U.S./U.K./France military attack on Syria, with the citizens of those nations accepting the assertion that Syria’s government/army was responsible. Before the internet, such a false flag action would have been “successful”, the people of the world would have believed Syria’s army did it, and the bombing campaign would have happened. Fortunately, within hours of the chemical attacks, the false flag became the subject of many articles flooding the internet, leading to worldwide knowledge of the deception and 90% opposition to any attack on Syria.

Unfortunately, too often false flags are soon forgotten in the current short-term memory nature of the world’s news cycle. Those who attempt to – or successfully carry out – false flags, instead of properly facing accountability for intentionally deceiving their citizens, somehow remain “off the hook” for their serious and immoral actions. Adrian Salbuchi mentions some of history’s false flags: the USS Maine, the Lusitania, the “surprise” attack of Pearl Harbor, Vietnam and the Gulf of Tonkin, September 11, 2001 and destruction of the Twin Towers, Britain’s train bombings of July 7, 2005, and others.

In Ukraine, many question whether the February 2014 “Maidan Massacre” – where over 100 civilians and police officers were gunned down by snipers – and the shoot down of Malaysian Flight MH17 were not “false flag” operations. In similar fashion to the Syria chemical attacks, the Maidan Massacre seems to somehow have drifted out of public consciousness and now gets nearly no international media or legal attention. No unbiased investigations were undertaken and carried out to completion; in neither case have the criminals responsible been correctly identified, prosecuted, and punished. Both were major historical, criminal actions. The Maidan Massacre remains an extremely important, of global-consequence, unsolved mass murder event.

****

Whether deceptive, harmful, and highly consequential actions falling into the class of “false flag operation” become carried out by leaders of any nation or group, the highest ranking military or intelligence officials of any nation, or covered up/censored by the most powerful media corporations on Earth: humanity must act to expose them, prevent them, demand punishment for those responsible – and protect innocent men, women, and children around the world from their profoundly negative effects.

“Christian Card” Trumps U.S.’ Syria Chemical Attacks Claim?

Posted September 25, 2013

by Jerry Alatalo

The following article was written by Julie Levesque and Prof. Michel Chossudovsky. It raises very serious questions about who was responsible for the August 21, 2013 chemical attacks in Syria.

(Source of this article: globalresearch.org)

mother agnes mariam

The chemical attacks which took place in East Ghouta on August 21, 2013 could be the most horrific false flag operation in history.

To date, available evidence indicates that numerous children were killed by “opposition rebels”, their bodies manipulated and filmed with a view to blaming the Syrian government for the attacks, thus sparking outrage and galvanizing worldwide public opinion in favor of another bloody, imperial US-led war.

While confirming the use of chemical weapons against civilians, the UN report has failed to identify the authors of the attacks:

Instead of a non-politicized investigation and lab analysis, the UN investigation of alleged nerve-gas attacks inside Syria was led by Professor Ake Sellstrom, a man of mystery who keeps a veil of secrecy around his research and political-military relationships…

This cosmetic veneer of Swedish neutrality has been deftly exploited by Israel and NATO to perpetrate falsehoods throughout Sellstrom’s work for the UN, including denial of the chemical-and-biological causes for “Gulf War Syndrome” and the shipments of U.S. chemical weapons to the Saddam Hussein regime…

What is publicly known about Sellstrom is that the biochemist heads the European CBRNE Center [Center for advanced Studies of Societal Security and Vulnerability, in particular major incidents with (C)hemical, (B)iological, (R)adiological, (N)uclear and (E)xplosive substances], at Umea University in northern Sweden, which is sponsored by the Swedish Defense Ministry (FOI)…

Umea University is deeply involved in joint research with Technion (Israel Institute of Technology), the Haifa-based university that provides state-of-art technology to the Israel Defense Force (IDF) and its intelligence agencies. Several departments, which are involved in joint Israeli research, participate in multidisciplinary studies at Sellstrom’s CBRNE center…

American ambassador to the UN Samantha Power made emphatically clear that the “nerve gas used in Syria was more concentrated than the nerve gas in Iraq.” Her statement should be rephrased as: “Saddam may have trans-shipped U.S.-supplied nerve gas into Syria, but it wasn’t our nerve gas used against Syrian civilians.”

That is the essential point of the Sellstrom report: To take Washington off the hook for being the major supplier of nerve gas precursors, formulations, delivery technology and storage systems to the Middle East, including Israel, Egypt, Libya, Iraq and very possibly Syria (during the Clinton era of good will).

The UN report of chemical weapons on Syria lacks basic credibility due to the duplicitous record of its chief inspector, Ake Sellstrom, who is politically and financially compromised at every level. (Yoichi Shimatsu, The Sellstrom Report: The United Nations’ Syria Inspector Shills for NATO and Israel)

A day beforte the release of the UN Mission report, another carefully documented report by Mother Agnes Mariam de la Croix and the International Support Team for Mussalaha in Syria (ISTEAMS) was released with minimal media coverage.  (To read the full report in pdf click here large pdf slow download)

Its findings are unequivocal: the videos used by the US and its allies as evidence to blame the Syrian government were staged.

The study says:

From the moment when some families of abducted children contacted us to inform us that they recognized the children among those who are presented in the videos as victims of the Chemical Attacks of East Ghouta, we decided to examine the videos thoroughly…

Our first concern was the fate of the children we see in the footages.  Those angels are always alone in the hands of adult males that seem to be elements of armed gangs. The children that trespassed remain without their families and unidentified all the way until they are wrapped in the white shrouds of the burial. Moreover our study highlights without any doubt that their little bodies were manipulated and disposed with theatrical arrangements to figure in the screening.

If the studied footages were edited and published to exhibit pieces of evidence to accuse the Syrian State of perpetrating the chemical attacks on East Ghouta, our discoveries incriminate the editors and actors of forged facts through a lethal manipulation of unidentified children. (Mother Agnes Mariam de la Croix and the International Support Team for Mussalaha in Syria (ISTEAMS), The Chemical Attacks in East Ghouta Used to Justify a Military Intervention in Syria)

Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya who examined the report writes:

The independent ISTEAMS study contradicts the assertions of the Obama Administration and the entire US Intelligence Community […] through simple observations of the video material that has been put forward as evidence by the United States.

The ISTEAMS report does not deny that chemical weapons were used or that innocent Syrians have been killed. What the study does is logically point out through its observations that there is empirical evidence that the sample of videos that the US Intelligence Community has analyzed and nominated as authentic footage has been stage-managed.  This is an important finding, because it refutes the assertions of the representatives of the US Intelligence agencies who testified that the videos they authenticated provide evidence that a chemical weapons attack by the Syrian government took place in East Ghouda. (Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya, Look With Your Own Eyes: The Videos of the Chemical Attacks in Syria Show Tampered Scenes)

A lot of things do not add up in the footage presented by the US government.

 The same little boy in red is in two different locations

At least nine of these children appear in different footage from different locations

 A little boy that appears in two different videos with two different scenarios

Among a series of important findings, the ISTEAMS report notes that even though the attacks are said to have killed over 1400 people, mostly children appear in the videos and several corpses are shown in different videos said to have been shot in various locations.

While this report seriously challenges the assertion that the Syrian government was behind the attacks, it was not covered by the Western mainstream media, toeing the imperial line and parroting Washington’s claims, which still lacking evidence and credibility.

In addition, some controversy arose pertaining to allegations that the rebels were responsible for the attacks and used chemical weapons provided by Saudi intelligence. Dale Gavlak, the co-author of an article containing these allegations, now wants to dissociate herself from the article and is facing threats. Her career is in jeopardy:

The MintPress article, published on 29th August, through interviews with rebels, family members, and villagers in Eastern Ghouta, alleges that elements within the opposition were responsible for the alleged chemical weapons attack on 21st August, and that those chemical munitions had been supplied through Saudi intelligence chief, Prince Bandar bin Sultan…

Dale is under mounting pressure for writing this article by third parties. She notified MintPress editors and myself on August 30th and 31st via email and phone call, that third parties were placing immense amounts of pressure on her over the article and were threatening to end her career over it. She went on to tell us that she believes this third party was under pressure from the head of the Saudi Intelligence Prince Bandar himself, who is alleged in the article of supplying the rebels with chemical weapons.

On August 30th, Dale asked MintPress to remove her name completely from the byline because she stated that her career and reputation was at risk. She continued to say that these third parties were demanding her to disassociate herself from the article or these parties would end her career. On August 31st, I notified Dale through email that I would add a clarification that she was the writer and researcher for the article and that Yahya [Ababneh] was the reporter on the ground, but did let Gavlak know that we would not remove her name as this would violate the ethics of journalism. (Phil Greaves, Syria: Controversy surrounding MintPress Chemical Weapons Ghouta Report)

The information according to which Saudi intelligence was allegedly implicated in the Ghouta chemical attacks was mentioned by a UN official who wished to remain anonymous:

A senior United Nations official who deals directly with Syrian affairs has told Al-Akhbar that the Syrian government had no involvement in the alleged Ghouta chemical weapons attack: “Of course not, he (President Bashar al-Assad) would be committing suicide.”

When asked who he believed was responsible for the use of chemical munitions in Ghouta, the UN official, who would not permit disclosure of his identity, said:“Saudi intelligence was behind the attacks and unfortunately nobody will dare say that.” The official claims that this information was provided by rebels in Ghouta…

The UN official’s accusations mirror statements made earlier this year by another senior UN figure Carla del Ponte, who last May told Swiss TV in the aftermath of alleged CW attacks in Khan al-Asal, Sheik Maqsood and Saraqeb that there were “strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof,” that rebels had carried out the attack. Del Ponte also observed that UN inspectors had seen no evidence of the Syrian army using chemical weapons, but added that further investigation was necessary. (Sharmine Narwani and Radwan Mortada, Questions Plague UN Syria Report. Who was behind the East Ghouta Chemical Weapons Attack?)

All of the above leads us to believe that this attack was one of the most horrific crimes committed in modern history, a diabolical staged operation which consisted in killing small children, producing fake video footage and photo ops of the corpses, all of which was intended to fabricate a pretext for military intervention under a humanitarian mandate.

The mainstream media which has obfuscated these crimes bear a heavy burden of responsibility. The New York Times has smeared the findings of Mother Agnes and her team, accusing her of “defending the regime” and “playing the Christian card”.  The NYT casually dismisses the evidence that the videos are fake. Read the ISTEAMS Report and then judge for yourself.

The war criminals who designed and launched this diabolical staged operation must face justice.

Procedures in the United Nations Security Council directed against the Syrian government  must be suspended.
