We can’t let the coronavirus lead to a 9/11-style erosion of civil liberties
Samuel Miller McDonald
We must reject such authoritarian measures wholly, no matter who says they’re ‘necessary’

As a millennial, much of my adulthood has been punctuated by severe national emergencies. The first my generation experienced was the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001. We all watched in horror as the months-long media spectacle replayed footage of the towers swallowing airplanes and crumbling into fire and dust. The moment of national solidarity and everyday heroism was brief.

The government quickly responded by attempting to achieve two things: one, expanding executive power, and two, transferring public wealth into private corporations. The Bush administration achieved the first by passing the Patriot Act, which built the foundation for what is probably the world’s most expansive surveillance state, but also by setting legal precedents that violated basic constitutional rights and by creating the Department for Homeland Security, with its aggressive constituent agencies like Immigration and Customs Enforcement (Ice) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The second goal was achieved with the “war on terror”, which involved unilateral occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq, and subsequent military forays into many African countries. In Iraq, private security, logistics and reconstruction contractors swallowed up $138bn alone. Since 2001, $5.9tn in taxpayer dollars have gone toward wars (not to mention resulted in hundreds of thousands of deaths and a foreign policy blackhole that still haunts the Middle East). Neither of these goals addressed the root cause of the crisis, and arguably exacerbated the conditions that led to 9/11.

Today’s crisis, in many ways, resonates with the experience of the tragedy of September 11, 2001. At that time, the American people were shocked by a series of terrorist attacks on U.S. soil. In 2001, the majority of people accepted the official narrative about these attacks, the origin and those who committed these heinous crimes. But soon many contradictions became apparent and did not support the official narrative. Honest people did not accept the official story as to why “building seven” in the World Trade Center complex (which was not hit directly), collapsed in a controlled demolition style! They were puzzled about the attack against the Pentagon at that time and still are perplexed regarding what happened to the airplane that supposedly hit and made a small hole on the side of the building, without a trace of any plane wreckage or remains of its passengers?

In this light, it is not farfetched nor unreasonable to speculate about the origin of this virus. Mr. Trump insists that this virus is “Chinese”. Mr. Pompeo repeatedly referring to the new Coronavirus as the “Wuhan virus”. The Trump Administration and commercial media, in full force, are spreading the xenophobia against Chinese people in general and Chinese-American citizens in particular. Just like September 11, once again a group of people have been singled out and terrorized through unsubstantiated and fake news, in this case, Chinese-American communities.

Constant in the 911False Flag Atrocity Studies, is the exposed Dichotomy between ‘Truth’ and ‘the LIE’ – the ‘Perception Management’ FireWall between Forensic Proofs and Context supplied by Experts in all Fields of DEMOLITION, Building Science, False Flag Methodology,  And the total abject BLANK REFUSAL (Reactionary Denial) of the Academic community (en masse assumed responsible for genuine Intellectual Inquiry/disassembly) into those Forensic Proofs and Context.

By every Academic measure, this failure to research the Evidence of Demolition and Deception, trapping an entire generation of thinkers into an official narrative, can only argue to the Success of 911 FalseFlagDemolition; as Deception.

A complex, multifaceted and Successful ‘Black’ Operation.

The Failure of Academia to understand the proofs of itself being deceived, can only illuminate the sophistication of Psychologies allowing for it.  In this case, a Deception practiced upon a whole generation of IR Professionals now so thoroughly ‘believing,’ that they have fallen prey to the very confirmation-bias and rote response they accuse the 911 truth community (Ad Hominen ‘Conspiracy theorists) of exhibiting.

This Critical lack is exposed by Dr. David A. Hughes in this now (wonderfully) published and peer reviewed paper

[John PILGER: “In the 1970s, I met Leni Reifenstahl, close friend of Adolf Hitler, whose films helped cast the Nazi spell over Germany. She told me that the message in her films, the propaganda, was dependent not on “orders from above” but on what she called the “submissive void” of the public.
”Did this submissive void include the liberal, educated bourgeoisie?” I asked her.
”Of course,” she said, “especially the intelligentsia…. When people no longer ask serious questions, they are submissive and malleable. Anything can happen.”]

In a shocking report published by The Sun, former Federal Emergency Management Agency employee Kurt Sonnenfeld says he has evidence proving that certain insiders were privy to the attacks, perhaps even including President George W. Bush.

Legal team also reveals that murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi was ‘potential witness’ in lawsuit

By MEE staff in Washington
Published date: 5 March 2020 20:39 UTC | Last update: 2 days 1 hour ago

A legal team representing survivors and families of victims of the 9/11 attacks has accused Saudi authorities of trying to silence several witnesses.

An almost two-decades-old lawsuit brought to court by thousands of victims and their families accuses Saudi officials of having ties to the 11 September 2001 attacks on New York and Washington. About 3,000 people were killed.

On Wednesday, lawyers representing the families said that four of their witnesses in the case had been threatened or intimidated by alleged Saudi agents.

On those grounds, the plaintiffs’ legal team requested that the identities of the witnesses in the drawn-out legal battle be protected and kept secret.

Lawyers representing the Saudi government denied the allegations of witness tampering, saying the claims were “based on hearsay within hearsay”.

The defense also accused the plaintiffs’ lawyers of trying to gain a “tactical advantage” in legal deposition interviews with witnesses set to be organised later this month.

Jamal Khashoggi: ‘A potential witness’
The lawyers of the 9/11 victims invoked the 2018 murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi officials in Turkey as evidence of the kingdom’s potential threat against their witnesses.

The 9/11 lawsuit looming over Saudi Arabia’s ambitions

Andrew Maloney, one of several attorneys representing the plaintiffs, also for the first time revealed that Khashoggi, an ardent critic of the Saudi government, had been “a potential witness” before he was murdered.

“He had valuable information,” Maloney told the judge on Wednesday.

Maloney, during the emergency hearing that took place at a federal court in lower Manhattan, did not provide further details regarding what that information might have been.

US Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn said she was “troubled by the allegations” and asked for a submission from the plaintiffs’ lawyers detailing the claims to be turned in by 18 March.

“I take these allegations incredibly seriously,” Netburn said.

‘Absolutely false’
In court papers, Maloney described some of the allegations made by the four witnesses who said they feared they were being targeted by Saudi officials.

One witness said his family had been approached and “directly threatened by Saudi government officials” within the past year, Maloney wrote. He said the witness was given to understand that he or his relatives “would be murdered” if he spoke out.

Another potential witness said that relatives in Saudi Arabia “feared for their lives”, Maloney said. A third reported being stalked, and another was reportedly thinking of buying a bulletproof vest.

He added that law enforcement authorities had been notified of the alleged threats.

“We categorically deny these allegations,” said Michael Kellogg, a DC-based lawyer representing Saudi Arabia.

Kellogg accused the plaintiff’s legal team of trying to “pick and choose which witnesses will testify”.

“We should be allowed to know who these witnesses are,” Kellogg told Judge Netburn. “We think these allegations are absolutely false.”

Following Kellogg’s statements, the plaintiffs’ lawyer accused the defense of wanting to know the identities of the witnesses so that Saudi officials could be notified and “dissuade them from testifying”.

“[No] Saudi Arabian government official, employee, agent, or anyone acting on Saudi Arabia’s behalf has attempted to threaten any potential witness or any witness’s family members in this proceeding,” a Saudi government minister said in court papers.

Saudi diplomat linked to 9/11
The US government has never released documentation indicating that the Saudi government was involved in 9/11.

US judge allows 9/11 lawsuits against Saudi Arabia to proceed

Still, last year during a meeting at the White House with victims’ families on the anniversary of the attacks, US President Donald Trump promised the visitors that he would order the attorney general to release the name of a Saudi diplomat who had apparently been linked to 9/11 in an FBI report years earlier.

The next day those hopes were dashed, as Attorney General William Barr said the release of such records would not be possible.

Their disclosure risked “significant harm to the national security,” Barr said at the time.

The Saudi government has long denied involvement in the 9/11 attacks.

In March 2018, a US judge in New York rejected Saudi Arabia’s request to dismiss the lawsuit.

We are saddened to hear the news this morning of Jeanette Fitzsimons who passed away late last night. Jeanette Fitzsimons is a signatory on the Political Leaders of 911 truth Website and met with Richard Gage, AIA in Wellington when he spoke at Te Papa in November 2009.

From the Statement of Jeanette Fitzsimons, Co-leader of the New Zealand Green Party since 1995, and member of the House of Representatives since 1999

There is so much that does not make sense about the official version of 911. I have read all 600 plus pages of “Crossing the Rubicon” and it appears to me to be well researched, though I still have an open mind on the matter of what exactly did happen. It is time we knew the truth one way or another, and an independent enquiry is the way to achieve this. If we do not know the truth of our history it will compromise our future.

Perhaps, it was reading Mike Ruppert’s examination of 911 and the geo-political relationship to Peak Oil in his book Crossing the Rubicon that may have lead her to be one of the first signers of the Political leaders for 911 truth petition. I remember that when Jeanette Fitzsimons met with Richard Gage, AIA in Wellington in November 2009, she had with her Ruppert’s book Crossing the Rubicon which was open at the appendix where the document Operation Northwoods was displayed. One of her first questions To Mr Gage was “Tell me is this document true?”

We thank Jeanette Fitzsimons for her courage and leadership in giving her support to a new 9/11 investigation and for her service to Aotearoa, New Zealand. May she rest in peace.

New Zealand’s Hidden Role at the Biggest US Bombing Base in the Middle East


January 28th, 2020
By Darius Shahtahmasebi

Last month the coalition government declared the end of New Zealand Defence Force deployments in Iraq. The announcement was silent, however, about the future of another deployment of New Zealand personnel, to a U.S. military base in the Middle East that has attracted controversy thanks to its role at the center of a large proportion of U.S. bombing missions in the region.

The base is called the Combined Air Operations Center (CAOC) and it is located at the Al-Udeid airbase in the small Persian Gulf nation of Qatar. Bombing missions that have been controlled from the base – where aircraft take off and land every 10 minutes, 24 hours a day – are implicated in large numbers of civilian casualties.

A recent issue of Air Force News revealed that a senior air force officer, Group Captain Shaun Sexton, served a six-month posting at the Qatar base; placing New Zealanders at the heart of the main targeting and bombing center in that region. The presence of New Zealand staff at the base has been kept largely quiet by the New Zealand military before now.

Last month, the New Zealand government delivered its decision to withdraw NZDF personnel from Iraq by next year. But what of Qatar? A spokesperson for NZDF told the Spinoff that “NZDF personnel based in the Combined Air Operations Center (CAOC) operate under a separate mandate to the NZDF personnel in Iraq. This mandate has been approved until 2020.” Whether they intend to maintain the postings to the Qatar base after 2020 remains unclear.

 Frances Shure, M.A., L.P.C., here resumes her series of articles for Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth that address a defining issue of our time: “Why Do Good People Become Silent — or Worse — About 9/11?” Each installment of this series has been a synthesis of academic research and clinical observations on the subject.

Since the CIA has long played such a unique role in manipulating the media both in the U.S. and abroad, I will now, in this installment, give this muscular body composed of national security intelligence operatives the special attention it warrants. In so doing, I will demonstrate the clear overlap that exists between the CIA (part of the powerful) and the mainstream media’s executives and journalists (part of the structure).
