A beautiful deconstruction of “conspiracy theory” doublethink

30 July 2008 | Permalink | comments: 0

Categories: [ 9/11 Truth Movement ]

The guardian.co.uk opinion page currently features a brilliant article from Dan Hind which is a response to an earlier article by Charlie Brooker, titled "So, you believe in conspiracy theories, do you? You probably also think you're the Emperor of Pluto".

 

The first article broke all records for online responses, topping out at 1,700. From my casual glance through it doesn't appear that Charlie Brooker has much support from the readership.

 

links:

www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2008/jul/17/september11 www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2008/jul/14/september11.usa

 

While Charlie Brooker draws on all the usual stereotypes and prejudices against "conspiracy believers" as mentally unstable social outcasts who irrationally cling to the idea of secret knowledge in order to improve their self esteem, Hind deconstructs the concept, demonstrating that recent policies of the current U.S. Administration (especially with regard to Saddam Hussein and WMD) have been informed by unsubstantiated and irrational conspiracy theories.

 

When you think about it, much of the fear mongering over Iran's alleged nuclear ambitions can be viewed as conspiracy theory too.

 

During the Cold War there was a widespread conspiracy theory about the threat of Communist world domination. These beliefs informed the policies of the Menzies era in Australia and led to censorship and the erosion of civil liberties.

 

Indeed, the view of 9/11 put forth by the 9/11 Commission and the Military Commissions at Guantanamo could correctly be described as "conspiracy theory" too, since there is no evidence other than the confessions of men who have have been held without due process for up to six years, tortured and dehumanised to the point that their testimony is now legally worthless.

 

Dan Hind's article, unlike David Coady's casual dismissial of 9/11 Truth as "irrational conspiracy theories", leaves the question of which conspiracy theory is correct unanswered - which is at least a more intellectually honest response to the "knowns" and "unknowns" of 9/11.

In tonight’s show we take a look at a variety of current stories in Australia and overseas, with special attention given to the ongoing global warming / carbon trading controversy and the pending execution of the convicted Bali bombers.

In the second half of the show we have two special guests, Emily and Matilda, with whom we engage in an extended open discussion of the question of responsibility in relation to the task of questioning official truth. In the discussion we express our views in regard to the criteria which are needed to distinguish valid investigative research from fantasy and speculation, and we take a look at a few fringe ideas such as the theories of David Icke and UFO’s.

Links to all major stories are provided below.

Next week we will be interviewing Glen Clancy, creator of the film Fool Me Twice, for a discussion of his ground breaking research into the Bali Bombings.

Thanks for listening!

Australian Greenhouse Expert David Evans Blows Whistle on CO2

http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au...-7583,00.html

Dr David Evans was a consultant to the Australian Greenhouse Office from 1999 to 2005.

But since 1999 new evidence has seriously weakened the case that carbon emissions are the main cause of global warming, and by 2007 the evidence was pretty conclusive that carbon played only a minor role and was not the main cause of the recent global warming. As Lord Keynes famously said, “When the facts change, I change my mind. What do you do, sir?”

There has not been a public debate about the causes of global warming and most of the public and our decision makers are not aware of the most basic salient facts:

———————————

Media Statement Sunday 1st July 2007

A new organisation called “The Carbon Sense Coalition” has been set up to defend the role of carbon on earth and in the atmosphere.

Chairman of the new group, Mr Viv Forbes, a pasture manager, soil scientist and geologist from Rosevale in Queensland, says the group is concerned at the growing and unjustified vilification of carbon by politicians and the media.

More information on The Carbon Sense Coalition can be found on our web site at www.carbon-sense.com.

“The impetus for the formation of the group was, firstly the proposal that carbon dioxide be labelled as a pollutant in the Federal National Pollutant Inventory, and secondly a set of wholly destructive policy proposals from the Queensland government in their document Climate Smart 2050 – Queensland climate change strategy 2007 – a low carbon future.”

———————————

Two student activists have won a court challenge to special World Youth Day laws that allowed police to detain people or fine them $5,500 for annoying or inconveniencing Catholic pilgrims.


No To Pope Coalition members Amber Pike and Rachel Evans took the New South Wales Government to the Federal Court, arguing the laws were unconstitutional because they would make their peaceful protest illegal.

Bali bombers waive right to seek presidential pardon

Indonesia’s Attorney-General has confirmed the three convicted Bali bombers have waived their right to seek a presidential pardon and he hopes their executions go ahead in the next few weeks.

Navy Prosecutor In Gitmo Case: “If they hadn’t shot down the fourth plane it would’ve hit the dome”

Though the trial the man, dubbed “Osama bin Laden’s driver”, is primarily functioning as a show piece for the Bush administration’s “war on terror”, some interesting information emerged from the Guantanamo Bay naval base yesterday in the form of a direct admission from a US prosecutor that the fourth plane was “shot down”.

Want some torture with your peanuts?

Here is a story so bizarre and so ridiculous that it sounds like either a hoax or a monty python script: a “shock bracelet” which combines RFID tracking with electro-shock weapon technology all in one handy package now being assessed by the United States Department of Homeland Security for use in passenger aircraft.



A senior government official with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has expressed great interest in a so-called safety bracelet that would serve as a stun device, similar to that of a police Taser®. According to this promotional video found at the Lamperd Less Lethal, Inc. website, the bracelet would be worn by all airline passengers (video also shown below).
This bracelet would:
• Take the place of an airline boarding pass
• Contain personal information about the traveler
• Be able to monitor the whereabouts of each passenger and his/her luggage
• Shock the wearer on command, completely immobilizing him/her for several minutes

Shock bracelets? Now they’ve really gone too far…

Here is a story so bizarre and so ridiculous that it sounds like either a hoax or a monty python script: a "shock bracelet" which combines RFID tracking with electro-shock weapon technology all in one handy package now being assessed by the United States Department of Homeland Security for use in passenger aircraft.

 

The new device is patented by Lamperd Less Lethal, a company which specialises in "less lethal weapons". They made a promotional video for their crazy invention a few years ago which received little attention.

 

Now however things have changed.

 

A senior official from the Department of Homeland Security has expressed interest in the device, and this was covered in a recent Fox News story which we present below:

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cBSRLrJbGg

 

The fact that the man interviewed plays down the "electro-shock" aspect of this device does not give me much comfort. Clearly the reporter is rather disturbed, as she fumbles for words during the interview.

 

Stories like this go a long way towards validating the worst case scenariois of where America is headed, and historically, where America goes, Australia soon follows.

 

CNN reporter criticizes TSA, finds self on terror watch list

The post-9/11 airline watch list that is supposed to keep terrorists off of airplanes has swelled to more than 1 million names, including at least one investigative reporter who had been critical of the Transportation Security Agency, which maintains the watch list.

 

CNN's Drew Griffin reported on the bloating of the watch list, which an ACLU count pegged at 1,001,308 names Wednesday afternoon. Griffin's is one of those names, he says.

 

"Coincidentally, this all began in May, shortly after I began a series of investigative reports critical of the TSA. Eleven flights now since May 19. On different airlines, my name pops up forcing me to go to the counter, show my identification, sometimes the agent has to make a call before I get my ticket," Griffin reported. "What does the TSA say? Nothing, at least nothing on camera. Over the phone a public affairs worker told me again I'm not on the watch list, and don't even think that someone in the TSA or anyone else is trying to get even."

 

The TSA, which is a part of the Department of Homeland Security, said Griffin's name wasn't even on the watch list, and the agency blamed the airlines for the delays the reporter experienced. The airlines, on the other hand, said they were simply following a list provided by TSA.

 

While it wouldn't be much of a stretch for plenty of people to believe the TSA would exercise its revenge via watch-list meddling, an agency spokesman insists that just isn't the case.

 

"So if there's any thought or shadow of a thought that TSA somehow put you on a watch list because of your reporting," spokesman Christopher White said, "it is absolutely fabricated."

McKinney wins Green Party nomination

Cynthia McKinney has won the presidential nomination of the Green Party of the United States.

 

This excellent video is from 2007 when Cynthia began her association with the Greens.

 

Her passion, intelligence and heroism is unparalleled in contemporary politics.

 

During this speech Cynthia reaffirms her commitment to truth and justice on many issues, including the assassination of Martin Luther King Jnr, co-intel subversion of the civil rights movement, the September 11th atacks and the Iraq War.

 

She documents here how the power elites behind the political process went about to destroy her career in the Democratic Party.

 

With her nomination by the Greens it looks like a new chapter is opening for Cynthia, for America and for the world.

CHICAGO — Former Georgia congresswoman Cynthia McKinney reassumed the national political stage Saturday, winning the presidential nomination of the Green Party of the United States at the party's national convention here.

 

Amid chants of "Paint The White House Green" and signs proclaiming, "Truth. McKinney 2008," McKinney revved up a crowd of about 350 Green Party delegates from 38 states who elected her on the first ballot.

 

"I am asking you to vote your conscience, vote your dreams, vote your future, vote Green," McKinney told the convention in a 30 minute speech following an address by her running mate, hip hop artist and political activist Rosa Clemente.

 

She was joined by her father, former Georgia representative Billy McKinney; her mother Leola, and her son Coy, on the stage in the elegant Michigan Avenue hall where the Chicago Symphony Orchestra performs,

 

McKinney, 53, was the odds-on favorite to win the nomination, coming into the convention with a 10-1 delegate lead over her closest rival, Jesse Johnson of West Virginia.

 

Since last fall, McKinney has campaigned in 30 states on the slogan "Power To The People" and a platform that calls for single-payer universal health care, the immediate withdrawal of American forces from Iraq and Afghanistan, the creation of a Department of Peace, and reparations for African-Americans.

 

In her address, Clemente, 36, vowed that she and McKinney would fight all "-isms and ideologies that divide us." Clemente jokingly threw down a challenge to the nation's sitting vice president: "Dick Cheney, bring it on."

 

In her unlikely re-emergence on the national political stage as the presidential nominee of the Green Party, which she joined in 2007 after leaving the Democratic Party where she had served six terms representing DeKalb County's 4th Congressional district, McKinney faces a stiff – extremely long-shot – run at the presidency.

 

She as much conceded winning the presidency was not her goal in her speech Saturday. She said the thrust of her campaign would be to get 5 percent of the vote in November, effectively establishing the Greens as a third party that would not have to fight state-by-state to get on the ballot every four years.

 

"We are in this to build a movement," said McKinney to roars from the crowd. "A vote for the Green Party is a vote for the movement that will turn this country right-side-up again."

 

In Georgia, because the party failed to qualify under state laws, McKinney and Clemente will not be on the ballot in November. Green Party leaders expect she will be on the ballot in 36 states, where ballot qualification rules vary.

 

David Cobb, who ran for president on the Green Party ticket in 2004 – and pulled in just 0.1 percent of the vote – said Saturday that one of the appeals of McKinney' as a candidate is her name recognition.

 

"Before she has even won the nomination, she has pulled new members into the party," said Cobb, who introduced McKinney at the convention, praising her work in Congress and for having introduced articles of impeachment against President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, and Secretary of State Condolezza Rice. He estimated Green Party membership is about 500,000.

 

McKinney is the second former member of Congress from Georgia mounting a presidential run this year. Former 7th District Rep. Bob Barr (R-Ga.) is running for president on the Libertarian Party ticket.

 

A lighten-rod political figure, McKinney was defeated in 2006 by the 4th District's present congressman, U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.), after a much-publicized run-in with a U.S. Capitol police officer and her accusations that the Bush administration covered up information about the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

 

That incendiary quality seemed to endear McKinney to Green delegates who, throughout the convention, inveighed against the "crimes" of the Bush administration and the distortions of the news by "corporate media" – which, except for the cable network C-SPAN, have given little coverage to the convention.

 

"Don't expect me to keep a count of the major flip flops of the other candidates between now and November, I'm sure there will be plenty," McKinney told the crowd. "They are in this flip flop because they have to appear to share our values — while they serve somebody else."

 

 

Movie Review - “The Reflecting Pool” by Nathan lee

I post this article not because it has any merit, but rather to illustrate the depths of depravity to which the hack writers employed by major media organisations will sink in order to stifle dissent and discredit the voices of reason and justice.

 

This article borders on defamation.

The problem with “The Reflecting Pool,” an investigative drama that mucks around with 9/11 conspiracy theories, is not that its ideas are silly. Strictly from an imaginative point of view, there is something unnerving about the weirdly elegant way the towers fell. And not just the north and south buildings but also the adjacent 7 World Trade Center, a smaller edifice, suffering much less damage, that collapsed in an identical manner but received far less coverage from — what’s the phrase I’m looking for? — oh yes: a complicit, propaganda-foisting media/industrial complex in the pocket of the Bush administration and the Jews and the oil industry!

 

Er, to continue. The problem, which dwarfs whatever you might feel about the topic, is in the drama, or utter lack thereof. Written and directed by Jarek Kupsc, the movie has the tone, rhythm and structure of a set of numbered, handwritten notes derived from 9/11 conspiracy Web sites, photocopied at Kinko’s and distributed at an anarchist bookshop.

 

This pamphlet narrative follows the efforts of Alex Prokop (Mr. Kupsc again), an investigative journalist for a lefty magazine about to “go corporate,” and Paul Cooper (Joseph Culp), a 9/11 obsessive whose daughter died in the attack, to unearth the truth in the face of suppressed information, disturbing ambiguities and, when needling the powers that be, their own amateurism.

 

9/11 families remains lawsuit dismissed

http://news.sbs.com.au/..._lawsuit_dismissed_551219

 

A US judge has dismissed a case brought by families of victims of the September 11 attacks who said the city denied proper burials by sending debris containing possible human remains to a garbage dump.

 

The lawsuit, filed in 2005 by a group called WTC Families for a Proper Burial, sought to have the estimated 1.2 million to 1.8 million tonnes of rubble originally from the World Trade Centre site transferred out of the Fresh Kills landfill located on New York's borough of Staten Island.

 

The families said the city should move the residue that had been finely sifted multiple times to a more suitable location and have a cemetery created.

 

US District Judge Alvin Hellerstein, saying the city's decisions about where to offload the debris "were difficult and complicated", found the city had "acted responsibly" in bringing about a "swift and efficient recovery from the terrorists' attack".

 

"Plaintiffs have no property right in an undifferentiated, unidentifiable mass of dirt that may or may not contain the remains of plaintiffs' loved ones," he said.

 

There are no New York laws that require burying the debris in a different location, he said, "however worthy the citizen and however honourable the deceased".

 

About 1,100 out of the 2,749 people killed at the World Trade Centre site perished without leaving a trace. Full bodies were recovered for only 292 victims and partial remains for 1,357, sometimes only a fragment of a bone, the ruling noted.

 

Almost immediately after the attacks, all visible human remains were removed from the debris, bagged and taken to collecting points.

 

Victims' families argued that debris surrounding some remains would have contained other bone fragments and remains.

 

The president of the WTC Families, Diane Horning, lost her son, Matthew Horning, in the attacks. His wallet and a piece of his occipital bone were recovered from debris at Fresh Kills.

Hellerstein concluding his ruling by suggesting a "beautiful nature preserve" and memorial at the garbage site and said the families of victims "have suffered a wrong for which there can be no remedy".

 

"No matter the authority and power of this court, it cannot bring back the loved ones lost, and it cannot bring peace to the plaintiffs or surcease to society's collective grief around the events of September 11, 2001."

The first photo proves nothing as it is from ‘British Bombers in 1944’.  Those planes were probably Lancansters or something like it which were prop powered planes and not jet powered planes.  Contrails (legitimate ones) are formed by JET engines.  The trials in the photo were probably some kind of exhaust smoke lingering on a still day.

A diatribe on ‘how contrails form’ is also kind of pointless as it doesn’t explain the frequency and patterns of chemtrails hundreds of kilometres away from commercial airspace.  I’ve personally witnesses one of these commercial like jets doing loops back and forth behind large cloud banks where the chemtrail stops as the plane emerges, turns around the starts again as it goes behind the cloud bank again. Sorry, I’ve seen too much to doubt the existence of chemtrails anymore.

Troll:

1. Someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

2. A member of an internet forum who continually harangues and harasses others. Someone with nothing worthwhile to add to a certain conversation, but rather continually threadjacks or changes the subject, as well as thinks every member of the forum is talking about them and only them.
