funny or sad? - updated

CNN. Funny or sad? You decide.

After NINE years, CNN discovers that the internet is full of conspiracies about 911?! Something Must Be Done.

These conspiracy theories are "absolutely incredible."

The web is "full of them."

And unlike the official story about 911, which blames Muslims, the "absolutely incredible" conspiracy theories on the internet "feed on racism."

Yet the EVIDENCE says: It wasn't Muslims. But you won't know that if you don't examine the evidence. And, you won't examine the evidence if you don't want to find out that it wasn't Muslims. Some people would rather see more innocent Muslims killed than examine the evidence and learn the truth. We consider that racist, in the sense that Muslims and the Arab world are conflated in the popular imagination (ie: "Islamofacists"):

racism or racialism (ˈreɪsɪzəm, ˈreɪʃəˌlɪzəm) —n
1. the belief that races have distinctive cultural characteristics determined by hereditary factors and that this endows some races with an intrinsic superiority over others
2. abusive or aggressive behaviour towards members of another race on the basis of such a belief
Is CNN controlled by racists?
CNN was "absolutely shocked" to learn that one in three Americans believe the terrorist attacks "were not the work of America's enemies, but some sort of *inside* job." (Note Paula's incredulous expression.)

And a smaller percentage believe an "even uglier theory."

"There's no physical evidence to support the claim that Jews were behind 911," states Paula.

Evidently Paula didn't see this site: Israel did 911 - All the proof in the world.

But even if Paula did not want to look at such disturbing evidence from the internet for her story, could we reasonably expect -- as a supposedly professional journalist making big bucks and covering the story for CNN -- that she would have checked any other sites on the internet? Perhaps one of the interns could have done a little research to find out that professionals have questions about the official 911 narrative?

Architects & Engineers for 911 Truth
Firefighters for 911 Truth
Pilots for 911 Truth

Apparently not. Let's see who CNN checked with.

CNN checked with the ADL. The ADL is run by Abe Foxman, a Jew.

The ADL is very troubled that these conspiracy theories, mostly discredited in the US, reach the internet and go into the Muslim/Arab world and make a "cross-fertilization of hate....And this is something we've never seen before."

We are not so sure about that, but there are many things many Americans have never seen before.

If Americans Knew

Do Americans not understand what they are supporting, or are Americans racist? Do Americans believe in Jewish racial superiority? To believe that Jews are superior to non-Jews is BY DEFINITION racist.

As evidence of hatred, CNN quotes Eric Hufschmid talking on Iranian teevee. But CNN doesn't mention that Hufschmid, as well as Bollyn, have for years been suspected as agent provocateurs.

Since this piece was written in May 2006, evidence has emerged that Eric Hufschmid is an agent provocateur and Christopher Bollyn was installed as a Zionist infiltrator at American Free Press. Hufschmid's role, aided by Daryl Setter a.k.a. Bradford Smith, is to divide the 9/11 truth movement, gather information on truth-seekers, and control the flow of information.  ...The idea was that Christopher Bollyn would write about 90% truth, 10% hoaxes, so that all of his work could subsequently be knocked down as unreliable. 
Then CNN interviews a retired Jewish police officer whose son died on 911. This man dismisses the Odigo warning as a scurrilous rumor. He says many Jews died on 911. That's true. He wants the names of Jews who supposedly got this message, and since no one has produced such a list, this must be proof that those messages never happened?

Unfortunately, CNN did not report that Odigo confirmed that two employees received forewarning, which of course implies foreknowledge.

The Washington Post, September 28, 2001: Instant Messages to Israel Warned of WTC Attack

NEW YORK -- OFFICIALS at instant-messaging firm Odigo confirmed today that two employees received text messages warning of an attack on the World Trade Center two hours before terrorists crashed planes into the New York landmarks. Citing a pending investigation by law enforcement, the company declined to reveal the exact contents of the message or to identify the sender. ...The Odigo service includes a feature called People Finder that allows users to seek out and contact others based on certain interests or demographics. Diamandis said it was possible that the attack warning was broadcast to other Odigo members, but the company has not received reports of other recipients of the message.

Haaretz, September 26, 2001: Odigo says workers were warned of attack
Micha Macover, CEO of the company, said the two workers received the messages and immediately after the terror attack informed the company's management, which immediately contacted the Israeli security services, which brought in the FBI. "I have no idea why the message was sent to these two workers, who don't know the sender. It may just have been someone who was joking and turned out they accidentally got it right. And I don't know if our information was useful in any of the arrests the FBI has made," said Macover. Odigo is a U.S.-based company whose headquarters are in New York, with offices in Herzliya. As an instant messaging service, Odigo users are not limited to sending messages only to people on their "buddy" list, as is the case with ICQ, the other well-known Israeli instant messaging application.
CNN does not discern for the viewer that American Jews did not get the Odigo message. But perhaps many Israeli Jews did? Considering that the Odigo system is one of two "well-known Israeli instant messaging applications," and considering that only five of approximately 4000 Israelis died?

Odigo has a feature on its service that allows the passing on of messages through a search feature based on nationality, such as Israeli. Knowing these two particular Israelis were forewarned, it is very likely they passed the message on to other Israelis considering that out of the 4000 Israelis believed to be in and around the WTC and the Pentagon only FIVE died. 5/4000 Israelis. Mathematically (if Israelis were not forewarned) about 10% (400/4000) would have died; even as low as 200-300/4000 would not really indicate foreknowledge. Yet only FIVE Israelis died and two of the five were actually aboard the supposedly hijacked flights; therefore only three Israelis died at the WTC on 9/11. An astonishing feat. We're talking about 'Israelis' here, not 'American Jews'. Many Jews died in the wtc on 9/11. (Israel did 911 -- All the proof in the world)

Then CNN talks to the Southern Poverty Law Center. The Southern Poverty Law Center is heavily staffed with Jews.

Of the twenty-one members of the Southern Poverty Law Center senior program staff, twelve (12) are Jews. This is a numerical representation of 57%. Of the eleven (11) members of the Southern Poverty Law Center board of directors, six (6) are Jews or have Jewish spouses. This is a numerical representation of 55%. Jews are approximately 2% of the U.S. population.* This means that Jews are over-represented on the Southern Poverty Law Center senior program staff by a factor of 28.5 times, or 2,850 percent, and over-represented on the Southern Poverty Law Center board of directors by a factor of 27.5 times, or 2,750 percent. This extreme numerical over-representation of Jews on the Southern Poverty Law Center senior program staff and board of directors cannot be explained away as a coincidence or as the result of mere random chance.

CNN then explains to Bollyn that people will conflate questioning the official narrative with anti-semitism, as though that is a fact like "the sun rises in the east." CNN asks Christopher Bollyn if he is an anti-semite for implying that Jews were involved in the attacks. Bollyn explains that he is a critic of Zionist policies. He discerns between Zionists and Jews.

CNN cuts to the ADL explaining that discerning, such as between Zionists and Jews, is a "common technique of anti-semites."

Does that mean, according to the ADL, that there is no difference between Zionists and Jews?

We find this tendency to conflate very dangerous.

See: to blow together

After this introduction, the question now is... IS IT TRUE?

No, actually that's not the question. CNN does not want to examine the "theories." But CNN had to Do Something.


CNN simply dismisses the theories.

Then Paula goes to the panel, complete with a "resident Jew." Hilarity ensues.

Paula states that there is "absolutely no evidence" that anybody other than Al Qaeda was involved in these attacks. This is very upsetting to the "resident Jew," Michael Gross.

Michael Gross suggests the following:

  • The Jews are scapegoated by people who are frightened and paranoid.
  • You cannot debunk this theory.
  • The people who believe that Jews had something to do with 911 are "mentally ill."
  • You cannot argue logic with them.
Let's follow his logic.

Gross is frightened. He's frightened because the whole nation is frightened, and that is Obama's fault. And the media's fault, excluding Paula of course (kiss kiss hug hug).

Additionally, Gross says that "Jews better get scared." So being frightened is good? Good for the Jews? Even though it's bad and it's all Obama's fault.

Also, we saw that it's apparently bad for Muslims to be angry, but it's good for the Jews to be angry? Gross says Jews should be angry, and fight for what's right. And Jews should try and convince people to have courage, because courage is the cure for paranoia, not racism. According to Gross, Jews should help us understand this important lesson.

In this outstanding video, a Jewish ex-Israeli woman who has renounced her Israeli citizenship, speaks about Israel's paranoid and psychotic society of apartheid. "The only thing that brings Israelis together -- and they know it -- is the feeling that they are under threat."

Then Deroy Murdock, a columnist and media fellow at the Hoover Institution (think tank), cites a book quoting Osama bin Laden to prove that "we" know who did 911. He waves the book around. PROOF! Osama knew in advance!

Osama knew things in advance because he was on the payroll?

Another guest, Lauren Lake, says we have a government that has led us into a war and "even the smartest of us (Americans)" now wonder why. Lake says we fill in the blanks. And we fill in the blanks with "misinformation, urban legend, we create stories." Of course, that is true. Psyops run on this very principle. That is why teevee is so effective at programming. That is why so many Americans still believe Muslims in caves did 911.

And then, bizarrely, Gross jumps back in to say that we should have been counseled that "we have nothing to fear but fear itself." So fear is bad now? Instead he says the Obama administration stokes fears, putting up the sign every day to "be frightened, be scared, be worried. So we are suspicious, we are xenophobic, and we don't like anybody that's different from us.... POGRAMS will be next."

Pograms? Why is Gross fear-mongering while simultaneously berating the Obama administration for fear-mongering?

Is it because Gross thinks it's good for non-Jews to be afraid of Muslims, but bad for non-Jews to be afraid of Jews, but good for Jews to be afraid of non-Jews? That seems to be what he means. His fear-mongering appears directed at his fellow Jews.

Is this what he means by showing courage?

Courage would mean looking at the actual evidence. But we don't expect courage from the clowns at CNN. You'll have to go to the dreaded internet to find that.

In conclusion, Murdock states, "I think it's very important as this War on Terror continues to point out exactly who the bad guys are, which are Islamofacists who want you you you and me dead, and want people dead around the country, and they're engaged in tremendous violence killing thousands of people all around the world. Starting with the -- well even before 911 -- the '93 attack, the attack on the USS Cole, this is a really serious enemy we need to identify them and educate people as to how evil they are."

Wearing clown pants on national teevee: funny AND sad.

Superb job of deconstructing this blatant psy-op, AP. Your spotlight on Gross is particularly enlightening regarding the psychology going on here. Gross reminds me of that character in the English teevee series of long ago, "Dad's Army" who used to sing out in a loud voice, "Don't panic, don't panic"!!!

As you say, it would be funny if it wasn't so sad

thanks James. i don't know the series unfortunately. but yes, Gross is really laying it on thick. and when he said pograms i thought the other panelists quickly decided to let that one die a peaceful death.

Since when are Jew and Muslim considered racial descriptions? I was under the impression these were purely religious designations? Does Catholic mean Italian? Mormon Utahan? Seriously. This is just more grist for the idiot mill. One thing you can always count on is the ignorance of the general population, it is truly boundless.

I read here regularly I just don't comment that much. You are fantastic. I have linked to you on my new blog, for what that's worth. I think us good guys need to stick together. You know what happens when good people do nothing....

silv, LOL. ; D

hey sal, thanks for your long-time support. i'm glad you have a blog now. i'll put you on the blogroll.

and you're totally right about the racist angle. it's only because the jews conflate their religion with race and especially the quality of 'chosen-ness' that the whole discussion then revolves around that as though they are the sun in the center of the human solar system. pfft.

9 11 was presumably done by the same people who did Operation Gladio, Operation Sledgehammer, Operation Cyclone, Operation Mockingbird etc.

correct, plus whatever operations they might have planned in the future.

Interesting story on Mr. Gross I found here

Maybe his GOP benefactors are not helping with the bills enough and the new GOP bosses want to see how low he will go for the cause?

That vid almost gave me a relapse/toxic stomach. Saw it before you posted. Perfect deconstruction.
The larry king comment at the end was priceless.
This was a great article by David Ray Griffin from 2008:
Sheesh, such desperation!

malc - i think that's a different michael gross.

bho - thanks for that link. i never saw that one.

It looks like I'm not the first to make this mistake.

Neither Michael there is this Michael.

This Michael actually comes across as a useful idiot for Fox in the past appearances I could find. Arguing with The Nuge about guns, for example, doesn't seem like a productive discussion IMHO. But there he goes into the monkey poo pit...

He talks past bikini blogger, Pam Geller, about Jihadists here:

He serves to rile the right wing masses into a fine froth. Nothing more, nothing less as far as I can see.
