Gordon Duff: Covering for JADE HELM and the Boston bombing

Gordon Duff: Covering for JADE HELM and the Boston bombing

ByJim Fetzer


As a journalist and editor for Veterans Today, the Senior Editor of which is Gordon Duff, I was astonished when he trashed an article by another former Marine, Robert O'Dowd, by adding an "Editor's Note" claiming that what O'Dowd had to say was uninformed, unsourced and misleading, since he (Gordon Duff) had "checked with his sources" and they all told him that JADE HELM was an innocuous "training op".

After doing my own research, I published an article about it, "JADE HELM is NOT a 'normal training drill'", where I was not surprised that he added another "Editor's Note"--this time twice as long and even more venomous--trashing my article, too. After it received 600 reads in the first hour (which hinted it would become #1), he took it down. The next day, he tossed me out of Veterans Today.


I have managed to recapture the article, which I have now republished at jamesfetzer.blogspot.com, which you can access here. Ask yourself why anyone in that position would have attacked this article, especially from a writer for VT who has published 150 articles on JFK, 9/11, Wellstone, Sandy Hook, the Boston bombing and Fukushima. Ask what could possibly be going on with Gordon Duff. Why would he have trashed this article?

The Plot Thickens

I had noticed almost immediately that two of my other articles were missing, having "disappeared" over night after Gordon took me out of Veterans Today. One of them was on the Boston bombing, entitled "Faking the Boston bombing: How it was done", which followed up on Nathan Folks' observation that it had been done using (what is known as) "hyper-realistic" filming. So I embedded a sensational two-and-a-half hour program aired on "Caravan to Midnight", which John B. Wells has regarded as important enough to make public as a YouTube:


"Caravan to Midnight", Episode 232, "Deconstructing the Boston bombing"

I was therefore astonished to discover that not just one but my four most recent and important articles about the Boston bombing--not of which has anything remotely to do with JADE HELM--had also been "disappeared". So I have written to John Allen, the General Manager of Veterans Today, the following email explaining that, if this is not a crime in itself, it at least appears to involved Veterans Today in covering up a crime, as follows:

Covering up the Boston bombing

Since I have now asked Gordon Duff a half-dozen times about "Faking the Boston bombing: How it was done", and had no reply, I am convinced he is responsible, which means he is not only covering for JADE HELM but also for the Boston bombing. This man appears to me to embody corruption. The day before he sacked me from Veterans Today, by coincidence, I did a "False Flag Weekly News" about JADE HELM, which includes around 20 reference that anyone can verify for themselves:



And most recently--just this past Monday, 27 April 2015, "The Real Deal" was with Nathan Folks on the Boston bombing for the first segment and, for the second, on JADE HELM with my producer, Chance George, who has been following this extremely closely. As you may notice, the meeting held with a representative of the military in a small town in Texas, which Gordon Duff has been touting, instead raised more questions than it answered:


"The Real Deal" Ep. #48 (Nathan Folks on the Boston bombing/Chance George on JADE HELM)

That the situation has come to this grieves me. I began writing for Veterans Today when Gordon invited me to join in 2011. I have believed in Gordon and thought he was a serious and professional journalist. I am dismayed at the turn of events, but reason and rationality require that, with the acquistion of new evidence and alternative hypotheses, we may have to reject hypotheses previously accepted, to accept hypotheses previously rejected and leave others in suspense. As the evidence I have presented explains, I no longer believe in Gordon Duff.

Targeting Talk Show Hosts

I was scheduled to appear with Jeff Rense on Friday to discuss JADE HELM. When I linked with the station, the producer explained that he was having trouble getting in touch with Jeff. I hung around for 45 minutes in the hope that he might make contact and, when I reluctantly concluded it wasn't going to happen, I send an email saying that I hoped he was OK. The next morning I received a reply from his girlfriend, telling me that he had been in a serious autombile accident and giving me the number of the hospital treating him.


I called later that morning and was informed that he was resting comfortably in ICU. On Monday I learned that he was home with a broken wrist--and he called me that afternoon to invite me on his show (again) to talk about JADE HELM. He told me he had been hit with some kind of psychotronic weapon that rendered him complete unconscious and his car went off the road into a rather substantial ditch. It was totaled--actually, a complete wreck--and the police described it as "an unsruvivable accident". It looks like no accident to me.

At the end of our conversation on the air, I observed that Stew Webb, with whom I had done a show about VT and Gordon Duff Thursday night, had been run off the road on Saturday, which further confirms my believe that things are getting hot because JADE HELM is "the real deal". I wish I could deny it, but Gordon has boasted to me in the past that he could have people taken out with a few phone calls. I don't like to entertain the idea, but if I am right about JADE HELM, then this may be the game that is being played for "all the marbles".

Paul Craig Roberts: “Truth Is Washington’s Enemy”

by Paul Craig Roberts

Saturday, April 25, 2015

US Representative Ed Royce (R, CA) is busy at work destroying the possibility of truth being spoken in the US. On April 15 at a hearing before the House Committee on Foreign Affairs of which Royce is chairman, Royce made use of two minor presstitutes to help him redefine all who take exception to Washington’s lies as “threats” who belong to a deranged pro-Russian propaganda cult.

Washington’s problem is that whereas Washington controls the print and TV media in the US and its vassal states in Europe, Canada, Australia, Ukraine, and Japan, Washington does not control Internet sites, such as this one, or media, such as RT, of non-vassal states. Consequently, Washington’s lies are subject to challenge, and as people lose confidence in Western print and TV media because of the propaganda content, Washington’s agendas, which depend on lies, are experiencing rougher sledding.

Truth is bubbling up through Washington’s propaganda. Confronted with the possibility of a loss of control over every explanation, Hillary Clinton, Ed Royce, and the rest are suddenly complaining that Washington is “losing the information war.” Huge sums of taxpayers’ hard earned money will now be used to combat the truth with lies.

What to do? How to suppress truth with lies in order to remain in control? The answer says Andrew Lack, Royce, et alia, is to redefine a truth-teller as a terrorist. Thus, the comparison of RT and “dissident” Internet bloggers to the Islamist State and the designated terror group, Boko Haram.

Royce expanded the definition of terrorist to include dissident bloggers, such as Chris Hedges, John Pilger, Glenn Greenwald and the rest of us, who object to the false reality that Washington creates in order to serve undeclared agendas. For example, if Washington wants to pour profits into the military/security complex in exchange for political campaign contributions, the politicians cannot say that. Instead, they claim to protect America from a dangerous enemy or from weapons of mass destruction by starting a war.

If politicians want to advance American financial or energy imperialism, they have to do so in the name of “bringing freedom and democracy.” If the politicians want to prevent the rise of other countries, such as Russia, President Obama has to depict Russia as a threat comparable to the Ebola virus and the Islamist State.

Noam Chomsky summed it up when he said that Washington regards any information that does not repeat Washington’s propaganda to be intolerable.

Washington’s assault on truth as a threat helps to make sense of the gigantic National SecurityAgency spy system exposed by William Binney and Edward Snowden. One of the purposes of the spy network is to identify all “dissidents” who challenge Big Brother’s “Truth.”

There is, or will be, a dossier on every “dissident” with all of the dissident’s emails, Internet searches, websites visited, phone calls, purchases, travels. The vast amount of information on each dissident can be combed for whatever can be taken out of context to make a case against him, if a case is even needed. Washington has already successfully asserted its power over the Constitution to indefinitely detain without charges and to torture and to murder US citizens.

It was a couple of years ago that Janet Napolitano, head of Homeland Security, said that the department’s focus had shifted from terrorists to domestic extremists.

Lumped into the category of domestic extremists are environmental activists, animal rights activists, anti-war activists which includes disillusioned war veterans, and people who believe in states’ rights, limited government and accountable government. Consequently, many dissidents, America’s best citizens, will qualify as domestic extremists on several accounts. Chris Hedges, for example, is an advocate for animals as well as concerned about the environment and Washington’s never-ending wars.

The spying and the coming crackdown on “dissidents” might also explain the $385 million federal contract awarded to a subsidiary of Dick Cheney’s firm, Halliburton, to build detention camps in the US. Few seem to be concerned with who the camps are to detain. There is no media or congressional investigation. It seems unlikely that the camps are for hurricane or forest fire evacuees. Concentration camps are usually for people regarded as unreliable. And as Lack, Royce, et alia have made clear, unreliable people are those who do not support Washington’s lies.

A perceived need by Washington, and the private power structure that Washington serves, to protect themselves from truth could also be the reason for the very strange military exercises in various of the states to infiltrate, occupy, and round-up “threats” among the civilian population. (see http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-04-16/signs-elites-are-feverishly-preparing-something-big )

Even the presstitute CNN reported that the National Guard troops sent to Ferguson, Missouri, were programmed to view the civilian protesters as “enemy forces” and “adversaries,” and we know that the state and local militarized police are trained to view US citizens as threats.

As far as I can discern, not many Americans, whether Democrat or Republican, liberal, conservative, or super-patriot, educated or not, understand that Washington with the cooperation of its presstitute media has defined truth as a threat. In Washington’s opinion, truth is a greater threat than Ebola, Russia, China, terrorism, and the Islamic State combined.

A government that cannot survive truth and must resort to stamping out truth is not a government that any country wants. But such an undesirable government is the government that Clinton-Bush-Cheney-Obama-Hillary-Lack-Royce have given us.

Does it satisfy you? Are you content that in your name and with taxes on your hard-earned and increasingly scarce earnings, Washington in the 21st century has murdered, maimed, and displaced millions of peoples in eight countries, has set America on the path to war with Russia and China, and has declared truth to be an enemy of the state?

Faking the Boston bombing: How it was done

by Jim Fetzer

Everything about the Boston bombing was staged using crisis actors, fake blood and phony injuries

When-it-shows-up-its-fake-blood

Nathan Folks, a Hollywood producer and director, nailed what was going on during an interview with “Voice of Russia”, during which he identified one of the key players in the event as an actor he had cast in one of his own films and explained that what was taking place is known as “hyper-realistic filming” in which scenes are created to be as realistic as possible for the benefit of inexperienced troops, for example, to acquire a sense of what they may encounter in combat.
Here I want to lay out the proof that Nathan has it right by presenting overwhelming evidence that the Boston bombing was staged, in the first place, and that it was done using hyper-realistic filming, in the second.

Caravan to Midnight’s expose

John B. Wells, the host of “Caravan to Midnight”, featured two students of the Boston bombing, PeeKay (who is a video blogger from Australia) and David Weiss (who has also done extensive work on Sandy Hook). They spent nearly two-and-a-half hours demonstrating that what happened there was completely staged and that no one died or was even injured.
Although CTM is normally “by subscription”, about 2/3 of the way through the show, John B. Wells declared that this was so important he was going to make it public by publishing it as a YouTube video. And that was a most appropriate decision for him to have made, as you will see from watching the following presentation:

About Hyper-Realistic filming

While Nathan has explained the idea behind “hyper-realistic filming”, here is a video that makes it completely vivid by illustrating how it is done. Indeed, this is an example of exactly what he was talking about in presenting scenes that are as realistic as possible so that inexperienced troops will have a sense of what they might encounter in combat.
But it can be extended to other setting, especially through the use of crisis actors, such as we have discovered was the case during the faking of the Boston bombing. We have to appreciate the importance of this technique, which can be used for good (to train troops) or for evil (to deceive the American public) for political purposes:

Training & Simulation Journal article

An article that appeared in Training & Simulation Journal (17 June 2011), moreover, elaborates on a kind of fake skin called a “Cut Suit”, a prosthetic human body worn by a person like a skin-tight gown, which includes fake skin and organs and a reservoir of fake blood.
Weighing in at 30 pounds, soldiers can make cuts into the suit or treat cuts that are already there as a form of “casualty treatment", such as they might be expected to have to perform in combat. Because the injuries appear so realistic, these suits are especially valuable in setting where deception has a high premium. We know about fake legs and other prosthetics, but this innovation goes far beyond them:
Journal title
Special suits for fakery

Nobody died at the Boston bombing

Here is a short-take discussing one aspect of PeeKay’s research, including a fake dummy that was used during the exercise. For those who have less than two-and-a-half hours for the “Caravan to Midnight” elaborate exposition, this video focuses on the use of a child-dummy, which appears to be hanging onto its mother, but the entire scene is fraudulent, where the child dummy is even passed around to create the impression of more parents and children in distress.
As it observes, the whole thing was fake–and there really is no room for doubt about it. We live in a world of illusion, where, as Karl Rove once observed, while you are studying our latest “created reality”, we are producing yet another:

Even the trial itself is fakery

And for anyone who entertains any lingering faith in our judicial system, here is further proof that the trial itself appears to be a staged event, where the judge, the prosecutors and the defense attorneys are collaborating in an elaborate fraud on the public and the jurors. The evidence that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his brother Tamerlan had nothing to do with the bombing is extensive, compelling and easily accessible.
I and others even called and wrote to Judy Clarke to offer Nathan and myself as expert witnesses on behalf of the defense. But their set pieces were in place, they were already committed to their roles and were not inclined to deviate from the script. So they simply did not bother to call back:

And the Oscar goes to:

Judy Clarke
From the Rules of Professional Conduct for the Practice of Law in California, it is obvious on its face that she has violated several of its conditions. Those include two clauses of Rule 5-200, Trial Conduct, which specifies “a member (A) Shall employ, for the purpose of maintaining the causes confided to the member such means only as are consistent with truth” and “(B) Shall not seek to mislead the judge, judicial officer, or jury by an artifice or false statement of fact or law”, which she grossly violated by falsely asserting to the Judge and jury, “He did it!” 
Rule 5-200 Trial Conduct
Judith Clare Clarke


Judy Clare Clarke





She has also violated Rule 5-220, Suppression of Evidence, which stipulates, “A member shall not suppress any evidence that the member of the member’s client has a legal obligation to reveal or to produce”.  That would include video of the police with bullhorns, the tweets from the Boston Globe announcing that a “controlled explosion” will be set off during the marathon for the benefit of bomb squad activities, and other evidence presented here and elsewhere. There was not even probable cause to warrant an indictment, much less proof to justify a conviction.

US propaganda against Russia could lead to nuclear winter

 

US propaganda against Russia could lead to nuclear winter

Washington’s unprecedented propaganda campaign to demonize Russia and President Vladimir Putin could lead to a nuclear catastrophe, according to an American scholar in Madison, Wisconsin.

Professor James Henry Fetzer, an editor at Veterans Today, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Sunday while commenting on a former White House official’s article in which he warned that the US is pushing the world towards a nuclear armageddon.

“The propaganda campaign attempting to demonize Vladimir Putin and Russia is reaching unparalleled heights today, as Paul Craig Roberts has astutely delineated in his recent report about the frightening combination of extreme disinformation unrelated to the realities of the situation in the world, with 450 US ICBMs on hair-trigger alert, which, as he correctly observes, could lead to a nuclear catastrophe,” Fetzer said.

“The question that has to be raised is why all of this propaganda is taking place which is so pervasive, so extensive, so intense, which I believe can only be understood against the background of appreciating why any nation or party would have an interest in or benefit from demonizing Vladimir Putin and Russia,” he added.



Russian President Vladimir Putin
“It appears to me is that the motives trace back to Israel and Benjamin Netanyahu who is outraged that Russia is providing Iran with advanced air defense systems, that are going to make all but impossible for Israel to  launch an attack upon Iran’s nuclear facilities,” he noted.

“The events of 9/11 were artificially contrived by the CIA, the neocons in the Department of the Defense and Mossad to change US foreign policy from one in which – at least officially – ‘we’ve never attacked any nation that have not attacked us first’ to one in which we regain an aggressor nation [status], immediately launching attacks on Afghanistan,  subsequently on Iraq, then on Libya, ongoing efforts to undermine Syria, and one expects that Iran is in the offing in the background as the ultimate target,” said Fetzer, the co-founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth.

On September, 11, 2001, unprecedented attacks destroyed the World Trade Center in New York  and damaged the Pentagon in Washington. The attacks also killed nearly 3000 Americans.

US officials assert that the attacks were carried out by al-Qaeda terrorists but independent analysts say it was a false-flag operation carried out by US neoconservatives along with the Israeli intelligence agencies in order to accelerate the US war machine and advance the Zionist agenda.

“In addition, we have the neocons, where it must be remembered that most of these neocons are dual US-Israeli citizens,” Fetzer pointed out.

He went on to say that neoconservatives, such as Andrew Lack, are “conducting extraordinary disinformation campaign to even discredit Russia Today, which along with Press TV, maybe the most reliable truth-telling news outlets in the world today, suggesting that truth-tellers are terrorists.”



Neocon Andrew Lack, a former chairman of NBC news
“The situation is very, very bad. We now have US military drills in Europe, that are angering the Russians, but where the US, Britain, France and Jordan have refused to name [ISIL] as a terrorist group,” the American scholar noted.

“In the background [of the] success of the BRICS [Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa] arrangement, the new alternatives to the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, Russia is providing these air defense systems, China is going to develop a nuclear reactor for Iran," he observed.

"There is a growing strength of relationship between Russia, Iran and China, which is a very positive development,” he underlined.

In his concluding remarks, Fetzer said, "The situation is very troubling. Paul Craig Roberts is quite valiant. He has done a wonderful work, and all of us have must pause and consider why there’s this fanatic effort to attack Putin and Russia, when they represent sane voices in a world of chaos today."

US paranoia over Iran's role in Yemen unjustified: American philosopher

US paranoia over Iran’s role in Yemen unjustified: American philosopher 

Press TV




 
The United States move to join a naval blockade against Yemen has “the effect of keeping food from the people rather than weapons form the rebels”, says American philosopher James Fetzer.

The US was “embarrassed” last week after one of its ships, taking part in the blockade, boarded a Panamanian cargo ship, accused of carrying Iranian weapons to Yemen’s Houthi fighters, but found nothing, Fetzer said in a Tuesday phone interview with Press TV.
“This is further confirmation that American and Western paranoia toward Iran is completely unjustified.”
The Pentagon confirmed on Monday that the carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt and the cruiser USS Normandy have also been dispatched near the impoverished country.

Pakistan wisdom vs. that of US

“It is a tragedy that the United States finds itself once again on the wrong side of a movement that’s intended to benefit the people of a nation,” Fetzer said referring to the Ansarullah movement in the Arab world’s poorest country.

Washington has not only managed to fail to display the “wisdom” of Pakistan, which has refused to join the Saudi aggression, but also “continues to disgrace itself through the abuse of its military power”.

Citing “the current instability" in Yemen, a US Navy Monday statement said Washington’s presence had been “increased” in the Arabian Sea, Gulf of Aden, the Strait of Bab-el-Mandeb, and the Southern Red Sea.

Earlier on Tuesday, Riyadh declared a halt to aerial bombardment of the impoverished country, a move hailed by the government in Tehran.

The air campaign against the Ansarullah fighters of the Houthi movement has also targeted the country’s infrastructure and residential areas after it started on March 26, without a United Nations mandate, in a bid to restore power to the country’s fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.

According to reports, some 2,800 people, including women and children, have lost their lives in the attacks so far.
