100 Million Americans Question Government’s Official 9/11 Story

March 30, 2010: Joel S. Hirschhorn / Global Research – March 30, 2010

The failure to rebuild the World Trade Center site in Manhattan has received endless attention.  But public anger about this failed reconstruction should not be seen so negatively.  After all, mental reconstruction has also still not been successful and is surely more needed, with too many Americans still accepting the official government story about 9/11.  This, despite a huge amount of compelling evidence that elements of the US government played some role, despite a very large, active 9/11 truth movement, and despite an impressive number of highly credible people demanding a new investigation as documented at patriotsquestion911.com.

In the recent Angus Reid Public Opinion survey of a representative national sample of American adults, 62 per cent of respondents disagree with the view that the “Sept. 11 incident was a big fabrication as a pretext for the campaign against terrorism and a prelude for staging an invasion against Afghanistan.”   Far more Republicans disagree at 80 percent, compared to 66 percent of Independents and 55 percent of Democrats.

Consistent with this is that two-thirds of Americans (67 percent) agree with the government commission that investigated the events of Sept. 11, 2001, which concluded that an attack was carried out by 19 hijackers who were members of the al-Qaeda terrorist organization, led by Osama bin Laden.  Though 12 per cent of respondents reject the commission’s findings, one-in-five Americans (21 percent) are undecided.  In particular, 35 percent of Independents and 34 percent of Democrats do not accept the official version, compared to just 20 percent of Republicans.

These figures translate to about 100 million Americans that question or find fault with the official 9/11 story, far from a trivial number and far too many to dismiss as conspiracy nuts and part of the lunatic fringe.  This is the important message that merits public appreciation.

That the mainstream media refuses to acknowledge this kind of public sentiment reflects on their lack of courage to dig deep into the role of the government and face the truth.  This behavior does nothing to improve American democracy and trust in government.  True patriots must acknowledge that government through the terrible acts of some individuals can carry out hideous acts; there is a bipartisan history of this.  Truth is the best way to stop such behavior.

Clearly, Republicans have blocked out the painful possibility that the Bush-Cheney administration played a role in 9/11.  This may also explain why the large tea party movement that results from strong disillusionment with government does not embrace the 9/11 truth movement.

Here is my perspective: If far more Americans rejected or questioned the official government story and demanded a new investigation, we would get the mental reconstruction sorely needed to ensure that the government never again uses a false flag operation to advance a policy (wars in Iraq and Afghanistan) that would not otherwise receive public support, especially one that kills thousands of Americans, both civilians and soldiers.

That the reconstruction at ground zero in Manhattan has still not succeeded symbolizes that the wounds of 9/11 are not healed, which means that we still have some chance of demanding and discovering the full truth, regardless of how painful it is.  The cost of a first-rate new investigation might be $50 million, far less than the billions of dollars to reconstruct the Manhattan site.

In the end, truth is more important than new buildings.  Worse than a hole in the ground is a hole in our national soul.  We need Congress to authorize and fund a new 9/11 investigation.  The highly fragmented 9/11 truth movement must unite behind a political strategy to make this happen.  The only reason to fear a new investigation is the likely unsettling finding that, indeed, the US government was a lot more than incompetent and negligent.

HR 4872: The Reconciliation Act Brings Microchipping To America

leave a comment »

March 30, 2010: Skywatch Canada / Infowars – March 30, 2010

During the thorough coverage of H.R.3590 America thought it was free of a ‘Healthcare System’ that allowed a national medical registry to be created and the population to be tagged with implantable RFID chips. But a second heath care related bill called “The Reconciliation Act of 2010” (2300 pages) was recently passed by the Senate on March 25th after being passed by the House on March 21st. This bill has been cleared for the White House and awaits the signature of the Dictator and Chief. Buried in the text of the 2300 page monstrosity in section 2521, the creation of a National Medical Device Registry is enacted. This is portrayed as a registry to collect safety data on medical devices such as pacemakers and to put the safety data in a publicly accessible national electronic database.

But as usual the wording of this bill permits the creation of something entirely quite different. In 2004 the FDA approved the Verichip for use of storing medical records. This device was classified as a Class II medical device. This is most likely the Class II implantable device being referred to in this section of the bill. The bill allows the unique device identifier (Chip ID tag) to be linked to “postmarket safety patient outcome data” regarding the implantable device itself. In order “to facilitate the analyses of postmarket safety and patient outcomes” the health secretary will examine ways to gain access to Medicare health records, private sector health records and other data deemed necessary (including surveillance data) by the Health Secretary and then link it to the database and your RFID implant. Just to be accurate, section (3) defines “data” as “claims data, patient survey data, standardized analytic files that allow for the pooling and analysis of data from disparate data environments, electronic health records, and any other data deemed appropriate by the secretary.”

So basically this bill creates a National Database of any type of data deemed appropriate by the executive branch of the US Federal Government. This could literally be anything. This could include anything you might have expected to find in an East German Stasi file. All of this data will then be linked to a “Class II implantable device” under your skin. There you have it, just like Lindsey Williams warned us. Forget the national ID card, implantable microchips are coming to a clinic near you no later than 36 months after the bill is signed into law.

The Strange Case Of Kristopher T. Sickles And The Hutaree Militia

leave a comment »

March 30, 2010: Kurt Nimmo / Infowars – March 29, 2010

One of the men arrested in the FBI and Homeland Security raids on the Hutaree Militia in Michigan last weekend appeared on the Alex Jones Show in 2009 after it was widely suspected he was a government operative. Kristopher Sickles, aka “Pale Horse” (a reference to the late William Cooper’s book Behold a Pale Horse), is named in the federal indictment against members of the Hutaree Militia. He is reportedly a member of the Ohio Militia.

It turns out he is probably not a government operative as originally suspected — at least not consciously — and is instead a mentally ill individual who joined the Hutaree in order to realize his perverse fantasies. In October of 2008, Sickles posted a video on YouTube. Dressed in military fatigues, wearing a camouflaged balaclava over his face, and cradling an AR-15 carbine, he calls on Americans to arm themselves. “Things are bad. Things are real bad, and it’s going to be a lot worse — our country is in peril,” he declares. The video was viewed more than 70,000 times before YouTube removed it.

In April of the following year, Pale Horse posted another video on YouTube. In the second video, he calls for a demonstration of at least one million armed militia men marching on Washington. “No shooting, no one gets hurt. Just a demonstration,” he explains. “The only difference from any typical demonstration is we will all be armed.” He specifically mentions Alex Jones in the video.

Soon after the first video drew attention, accusations arose that Sickles, then known only as Pale Horse, was a government operative and his video was specifically designed to portray legitimate state militias in a negative and sinister light. In fact, the corporate media did use the Ohio Militia video as part of its campaign to demonize the patriot movement in 2009.

On August 17, 2009, Alex Jones interviewed Pale Horse after the corporate media exploited him as part of its ongoing propaganda offensive.

“Either you were doing this to get attention, knowing that putting this mystique on [Pale Horse’s use of a voice changer in the video], as you call it, would make the media pick up on what you were saying — because it was useful to them — or you are a Adam Gadahn type fed or foundation hired person meant to make the militias look dangerous and fringe and bad,” said Jones.

Adam Gadahn is the American media spokesman for al-Qaeda and widely regarded as an intelligence operative. Gadahn is the first American charged with treason by the U.S. government since 1952.

Alex characterized Pale Horse’s video effort as an “art project” intended to draw attention to himself and the Ohio Militia. During the interview, Sickles described himself and the Ohio Militia as legitimate and not part of a disinformation or intelligence operation designed to discredit the larger militia movement. See the video below.

According to the Irregular Times, however, there is a darker and more perverse side to Kristopher Sickles. He is not a constitutionalist or mainstream militia member. “For Kristopher Sickles, who used the Hutaree pseudonym ‘Pale Horse,’ Christianity served as a perfect combination of righteous indignation and an excuse to behave in inexcusable ways. In particular, Sickles found in Christianity an excuse to kill people.”

Sickles released a film in 2009 he had written and directed entitled Dement Incarnate. The main character of the film is a serial killer who is depicted reveling in the slaughter of a young child. Sickles created a MySpace page on the film.

Irregular Times: “The fascination Sickles has with serial killing is particularly fascinating when it is considered in the context of a shorter film Sickles made: American Jihad. That video depicts a fantasy sequence of a businessman happening upon an Islamic terrorist hideout in rural Michigan. Men in camouflage shout Muslim catch phrases as they torture and kill the businessman. The interesting thing is that the deadly terrorists, in their rural Michigan hideout, are quite like the group Kris Sickles aligned himself with. The only difference is that the Hutarees practice a different religion.”

We now know that Kristopher Sickles, as Alex Jones speculated, is little more than a self-absorbed poseur who lives in a violent fantasy world. The Hutaree Militia allowed him the possibility of realizing his warped and sadistic fantasies.

Irregular Times continues: “Considering American Jihad [another violent film produced by Sickles], we see that Pale Horse Kris Sickles was, consciously or not, using these videos he created as a way of contemplating his own violent desires. In both videos, he copes with his own guilty interest in killing by depicting the murderers as his enemies: Muslims and other non-Christians. However, as much as he attempts to place the urge to murder outside of himself, the reflection of Sickles’s own fascination emerges clear as day. The very sadism he accuses others of in order to justify their murder is a cruelty he harbors within himself.”

The Michigan Militia quickly moved to put an end to any speculation that it was associated with the Hutaree Militia. On the United States Militia message board yesterday, a post emphatically decried any association:

“Please convey to the fools that are propagating this dis-information that it is the Hutaree, an extreme right Christian group that has been targeted and members from Ohio… along with some people affiliated with the Hutaree. I can tell you that the Michigan Militia Corp Wolverines, SMVM, WMVM, WCMVM and any other affiliated units of ours have NOT been targeted and we have no knowledge of any Michigan Militia member being arrested. The Hutaree is NOT the Michigan Militia and they are NOT a Constitutional based militia but rather a biblical based militant group.”

As of this writing, it appears Mr. Sickles is not a government operative, although as history repeatedly demonstrates the FBI is not beyond exploiting such mentally unstable individuals in its effort to demonize the establishment’s enemies.

Sickles is entirely responsible for his fate. His association with the Hutaree is more about his violent fantasies than restoring the republic and demanding the federal government respect and obey the Constitution.

The Tonka Report Editor’s Note: Depending how the corporate media is ordered to spin this and/or how the government will exploit it, this all leads to the same dark road of demonizing the real Patriots in order to quell any uprising as they rape the last vestiges of our freedom and Constitution into oblivion… – SJH
