Philip M. Giraldi: How False Flag Operations are Carried Out Today

How False Flag Operations Are Carried Out Today

How False Flag Operations Are Carried Out Today

False Flag is a concept that goes back centuries. It was considered to be a legitimate ploy by the Greeks and Romans, where a military force would pretend to be friendly to get close to an enemy before dropping the pretense and raising its banners to reveal its own affiliation just before launching an attack. In the sea battles of the eighteenth century among Spain, France and Britain hoisting an enemy flag instead of one’s own to confuse the opponent was considered to be a legitimate ruse de guerre, but it was only “honorable” if one reverted to one’s own flag before engaging in combat.
Today’s false flag operations are generally carried out by intelligence agencies and non-government actors including terrorist groups, but they are only considered successful if the true attribution of an action remains secret. There is nothing honorable about them as their intention is to blame an innocent party for something that it did not do. There has been a lot of such activity lately and it was interesting to learn by way of a leak that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has developed a capability to mimic the internet fingerprints of other foreign intelligence services. That means that when the media is trumpeting news reports that the Russians or Chinese hacked into U.S. government websites or the sites of major corporations, it could actually have been the CIA carrying out the intrusion and making it look like it originated in Moscow or Beijing. Given that capability, there has been considerable speculation in the alternative media that it was actually the CIA that interfered in the 2016 national elections in the United States.
Sandy Hook Update: Tracy loses, Wolfgang wins
False flags can be involved in other sorts of activity as well. The past year’s two major alleged chemical attacks carried out against Syrian civilians that resulted in President Donald Trump and associates launching 160 cruise missiles are pretty clearly false flag operations carried out by the rebels and terrorist groups that controlled the affected areas at the time. The most recent reported attack on April 7th might not have occurred at all according to doctors and other witnesses who were actually in Douma. Because the rebels succeeded in convincing much of the world that the Syrian government had carried out the attacks, one might consider their false flag efforts to have been extremely successful.
The remedy against false flag operations such as the recent one in Syria is, of course, to avoid taking the bait and instead waiting until a thorough and objective inspection of the evidence has taken place. The United States, Britain and France did not do that, preferring instead to respond to hysterical press reports by “doing something.” If the U.N. investigation of the alleged attack turns up nothing, a distinct possibility, it is unlikely that they will apologize for having committed a war crime.
How to Spot a False Flag
The other major false flag that has recently surfaced is the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury England on March 4th. Russia had no credible motive to carry out the attack and had, in fact, good reasons not to do so. The allegations made by British Prime Minister Theresa May about the claimed nerve agent being “very likely” Russian in origin have been debunked, in part through examination by the U.K.’s own chemical weapons lab. May, under attack even within her own party, needed a good story and a powerful enemy to solidify her own hold on power so false flagging something to Russia probably appeared to be just the ticket as Moscow would hardly be able to deny the “facts” being invented in London. Unfortunately, May proved wrong and the debate ignited over her actions, which included the expulsion of twenty-three Russian diplomats, has done her severe damage. Few now believe that Russia actually carried out the poisoning and there is a growing body of opinion suggesting that it was actually a false flag executed by the British government or even by the CIA.
The lesson that should be learned from Syria and Skripal is that if “an incident” looks like it has no obvious motive behind it, there is a high probability that it is a false flag. A bit of caution in assigning blame is appropriate given that the alternative would be a precipitate and likely disproportionate response that could easily escalate into a shooting war.

The United States of America is the land that we love.
Maybe we can all agree that far?
But the rest of all these patriotic Fatherland songs leave
many of us sitting in our seats.
Because we know.

We are not living in that land that we think we grew up in, with the Beatles, the Yankees, John Kennedy, Ed Sullivan, Matt Dillon, Walter Cronkite and Alpha-Bits.

We are not the good guys.
We are not the good guys.
That's something that takes forever to figure out and
even longer to understand.

But now, we have waited, lived forever, through Vietnam, JFK, RFK, MLK, Johnson, Reagan, Waco, Oklahoma City, 9/11, Boston, Sandy Hook, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama, San Bernardino, Orlando, Las Vegas, Parkland ... all that crap, always hoping things would turn around, turn out right, in the end, because ultimately, we are the good guys.

We live in The United States of America.
And we are not the good guys.

           Penn Magazine is named in honor of Penn Jones Jr., 
               one of the first honest researchers 
             into the murder of John F. Kennedy

             It's all connected, that day and this, 
                      there is an ongoing thread, 
       that's why it's important to keep doing the work ... 
      because if Truth does not come to the United States 
      it will implode and possibly destroy the world as well. 
                  So, join with us and lets save the world.



"... There are no
institutions within the
United States that are
authentically democratic.

The only hope we have left is acts of mass sustained civil disobedience,
blocking rail tracks that carry tar sands oil,
non-cooperation, shutting down the
country in a massive way, that’s it.


"We made the collective decision that we were not going to stand for the real account of the murder of 3,000 people on this soil on Sept. 11, 2001, with mass evidence, eye witnesses, and the circumstantial
evidence paints a picture of something that is an inside job.
No investigation. No real demand for it.

... since 9/11, well, not just since 9/11, but on steroids since 9/11, they have used mass tragedies as a means to do massive rights grabs ... the police are saying they want the power to pre-emptively detain people without a threat to self or others, on what they post on social media.

"... we know what they've done since 9/11. They've used every last one of these events, never to actually protect people ... because 9/11 was designed to be a perpetual war on a feeling that they can suspend the constitution, post-constitution period, no accountability for the crimes they commit, no oversight by the Supreme Court, and every last one of these tragedies they do these rights grabs, and then they get the population to go and march for it. Shame on America for that bullshit.

"People say, what do you do.
Well, you stop individually buying it and anything that props it up
and then you make peace.


"We’re dealing with complete evil.
We’re dealing with complete evil and until the
American people wake up and say we don’t want this evil in my country anymore. I want to come back to a country of decency and goodness and integrity and honor … that’s what it’s going to take, people to stand up and say we don’t want to live in this kind of a world anymore. ... It’s a criminal organization, but it’s a criminal organization that has prestige, it appears to have class, style, it’s respected. People don’t look at it as being a criminal organization.


"There’s a concept that Orwell talks about, it’s called CrimeStop,
that we have in our own minds.

What CrimeStop means is when there’s a questions that is an extraordinarily uncomfortable one and there’s a systemic evil, he’s putting it in the context of the whole society and a government that’s operating behind the scenes.

While we act in our own psyches in such a way that the government
doesn’t have to do anything if the crime
stop is up here [head].


"They [assassinations] will continue and we can expect nothing less from a power structure that wants to control the world.

If they don’t have to use it, they won’t. They tolerate people who will not affect really the power structure of the society.

 Political assassinations, Martin King, and Bob Kennedy in particular … the way government controls people, is through the use of political assassinations and infiltration and the installation of agent provocateurs and movement groups, that happened rampantly throughout the ‘60s, and we were very naive.

We didn’t realize the extent to which government was worried about this.
But they did it.
So when you have this type of political operation that is sponsored by government, political assassinations are a key element, and they have been throughout the history of human society by the way. This is nothing new.

But the assassinations of the ‘60s set the stage for what we have today. The end of representative democracy and the establishment of oligarchic rule in this country because that is what we are facing. Let’s understand it. America is ruled by a corporate and financial oligarchy that dominates all public officials and all public life in the country.

So it’s very difficult to say we’re going to go against this force when we’re going to be challenging the very basis of the establishment.


"The confessions of E. Howard Hunt are just one of the dozens if not hundreds of “smoking guns” proving beyond all possible doubt that the CIA was at the center of the coup d'├ętat against JFK.

As long as the American people imagine that there is still some small shred of doubt about the JFK case, they will never rise up and overthrow the military-industrial-intelligence complex (including the mainstream media brainwashing apparatus) that has stolen their democracy.

So everyone, repeat after me, “CIA killed JFK.”

Let us finish the job that JFK started when he said, “I want to splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds.”

"While many citizens believe that Senator Paul Wellstone’s perfectly-timed plane crash was an accident, the evidence suggests
it was an assassination instead. 

The NTSB considered only accident-compatible hypotheses involving the plane, the pilots, and the weather. This lecture systematically considers the available evidence in this case, much of which is not known to the public. He explains why the NTSB’s evidence contradicts its own conclusions and offers reasons why a more thorough and systematic investigation leads to a very different conclusion.

When the alternatives of a small bomb, a gas canister, or a directed-energy weapon are taken into account, a more disturbing conception emerges of exactly what happened to the man widely regarded as “the conscience of the Senate.”

Paul Wellstone, as you all know, died in a plane crash
that occurred on 25 October 2002, ten days before the election. His wife was aboard, and a daughter, three aides, and two pilots. ... they were expected
in Eveleth airport about 10:20 ...

... Paul Wellstone would have stood with us in wanting to know the truth. He would have been unflinching. He would have been relentless pursued the truth as long and hard as he could, and by God, that’s what I’m going to do,
as long as I’m here to do it.

Dr. Eowyn: Times of Israel (2012): Jews do control the American media

Times of Israel: Jews do control the media

Any time someone says Jews control the news media, he/she immediately is accused of being anti-Semitic, Nazi racists.

But did you know that Jews openly admit that among themselves?

On July 1, 2012, The Times of Israel published an essay by Huffington Post blogger Elad Nehorai titled, “Jews DO Control the Media”.

Intended to be read by Jews, soon after the article began to receive the scrutiny of readers outside of its intended audience, Times of Israelreplaced the author’s name with the alias “Manny Friedman,” perhaps because of Nehorai’s connection to the Chabad Lubavitch — a messianic, Jewish supremacist (Jews are an extension of God whom Gentiles are destined to serve), Orthodox Hasidic movement with a global reach. Some say the sect means to trigger a Third World War to bring on doomsday and the resultant reign of the Jewish people. President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka (who converted to Judaism) are members.

Nehorai’s biographical profile on the Huffington Post says:
Elad Nehorai is a writer living in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Five years ago, he became a religious Jew in the Chabad Hassidic community and has since written about his experience extensively, most recently in his blog Pop Chassid. You can find him on Twitter as @PopChassid and Facebook.
Here’s a screenshot of the original article, with Elad Nehorai identified as the author (click image to enlarge):

Next, Times of Israel took down the essay and even removed it from its archives, which you can see for yourself here.

By then, however, the essay had been copied, pasted and re-published by bloggers, as well as preserved on the Internet Archive. (Sources: Under The Radar MediaWhat Really Happened)
Below is the article in its entirety.

Jews DO Control the Media

Manny Friedman • Times of Israel • July 1, 2012
This article was written under an assumed name.

We Jews are a funny breed. We love to brag about every Jewish actor. Sometimes we even pretend an actor is Jewish just because we like him enough that we think he deserves to be on our team. We brag about Jewish authors, Jewish politicians, Jewish directors. Every time someone mentions any movie or book or piece of art, we inevitably say something like, “Did you know that he was Jewish?” That’s just how we roll.

We’re a driven group, and not just in regards to the art world. We have, for example, AIPAC, which  was essentially constructed just to drive agenda in Washington DC. And it succeeds admirably. And we brag about it. Again, it’s just what we do.

But the funny part is when any anti-Semite or anti-Israel person starts to spout stuff like, “The Jews control the media!” and “The Jews control Washington!”

Suddenly we’re up in arms. We create huge campaigns to take these people down. We do what we can to put them out of work. We publish articles. We’ve created entire organizations that exist just to tell everyone that the Jews don’t control nothin’. No, we don’t control the media, we don’t have any more sway in DC than anyone else. No, no, no, we swear: We’re just like everybody else!

Does anyone else (who’s not a bigot) see the irony of this?

Let’s be honest with ourselves, here, fellow Jews. We do control the media. We’ve got so many dudes up in the executive offices in all the big movie production companies it’s almost obscene. Just about every movie or TV show, whether it be “Tropic Thunder” or “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” is rife with actors, directors, and writers who are Jewish. Did you know that all eight major film studios are run by Jews?

But that’s not all. We also control the ads that go on those TV shows.

And let’s not forget AIPAC, every anti-Semite’s favorite punching bag. We’re talking an organization that’s practically the equivalent of the Elders of Zion. I’ll never forget when I was involved in Israeli advocacy in college and being at one of the many AIPAC conventions. A man literally stood in front of us and told us that their whole goal was to only work with top-50 school graduate students because they would eventually be the people making changes in the government. Here I am, an idealistic little kid that goes to a bottom 50 school (ASU) who wants to do some grassroots advocacy, and these guys are literally talking about infiltrating the government. Intense.

Now, I know what everyone will say. That everyone tries to lobby. Every minority group and every majority group. That every group has some successful actors and directors. But that’s a far call from saying that we run Hollywood and Madison Avenue. That the Mel Gibsons of the world are right in saying we’re deliberately using our power to take over the world. That we’ve got some crazy conspiracy going down.

Okay. Fine. So some of that is kooky talk.

But let’s look at it a bit deeper.

Maybe it’s true: everyone lobbies. Maybe it’s true there are actors of every ethnicity out there. But come on. We’re the ones who are bragging about this stuff all the time. Can’t we admit that we’re incredibly successful? Can’t we say it to the world?

I’ll give my theory for why Jews don’t want to talk about their control of the media.
First of all, as much as Jews like to admit that so many of them are successful, and that so many of them have accomplished so much, they hate to admit that it has to do with they’re being Jewish. Maybe they’ll admit that it has something to do with the Jewish experience. But how many Jews will admit that there is something inherently a part of every single one of them that helps them to accomplish amazing things?

The ADL chairman, Abe Foxman, was interviewed in a great article about the subject and he said that he “would prefer people say that many executives in the industry ‘happen to be Jewish.’” This just about sums up the party line.

The truth is, the anti-Semites got it right. We Jews have something planted in each one of us that makes us completely different from every group in the world. We’re talking about a group of people that just got put in death camps, endured pogroms, their whole families decimated. And then they came to America, the one place that ever really let them have as much power as they wanted, and suddenly they’re taking over. Please don’t tell me that any other group in the world has ever done that. Only the Jews. And we’ve done it before. That’s why the Jews were enslaved in Egypt. We were too successful. Go look at the Torah — it’s right there. And we did it in Germany too.

This ability to succeed, this inner drive, comes not from the years of education or any other sort of conditional factors, but because of the inner spark within each Jew.

Now, the reason groups like the ADL and AIPAC hate admitting this is because, first of all, they are secular organizations. Their whole agenda is to prove that every Jew is the same as every other person in the world. I cannot imagine a more outlandish agenda. No, we’re different. We’re special.

Of course, people hate when anyone says this. They assume that if you’re saying that Jews are special, it somehow implies that they’re better.

To be honest, I’m not really sure what the word “better” even means. What I do know is that being special simply means a person has a responsibility to do good.

I think that’s the real reason most Jews are so afraid to admit that there’s something inherently powerful and good about them. Not because they’re afraid of being special. But because they’re afraid of being responsible. It means that they’re suddenly culpable when they create dirty TV shows that sully the spiritual atmosphere of the world. It means that things can’t just be created for the sake of amusement or fun or even “art.”

Suddenly, we can’t screw up the world.

The interesting thing is that Jews have done so much for the world in so many other ways. They’ve moved forward civil rights; they’ve helped save lives in Darfur, Haiti and just about everywhere else.

But that’s not enough. Fixing the world physically is only half the battle.

Our larger battle, the harder battle, is elevating the world spiritually. And this is what the people that fight with every inch of their soul to prove that Jews are just the same as everyone else are afraid of. It means that we can no longer just “express ourselves.” We’ll have to start thinking about the things we create and the way we act. It means we’ll have to start working together. It means we’ll have to hold one other, and ourselves, to a higher standard.

The time has come, though. We no longer have to change our names. We no longer have to blend in like chameleons. We own a whole freaking country.

Instead, we can be proud of who we are, and simultaneously aware of our huge responsibility — and opportunity.

Dr. Eowyn: Second Broward County Sheriff's Deputy Dead, at 53


Second Broward County Sheriff’s deputy dead, at 53

On April 9, 2018, I re-blogged Dr. James Tracy’s post on the sudden and untimely death, at age 42, of Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy Jason Fitzsimons, who had questioned the Parkland school shooting’s gun control agenda.
Now comes another Broward County sheriff’s deputy death — that of 53-year-old Marshall Peterson on April 24, 2018.
Yesterday, the Broward Sheriff tweeted this:
The reaction to the tweet is one of skepticism:
“I don’t see this on the news. Why not?”
“What’s really going on in Broward County? We need answers!”
“How strange? Did the Clintons move to Broward County? #ROFL these murder coincidences usually follow them around.”
“2nd deputy to die in his home. PEOPLE PLEASE WAKE THE F UP”
“Musta been pro-2A.”
“What did he know?”
“Are these all the cops that know the truth about recent shootings?”
I scoured the web but was unable to find more information on Peterson’s death:
  • No obituary, probably because the death occurred only yesterday.
  • No Facebook account
  • No Twitter account
  • The only likely “Marshall Peterson” on LinkedIn has a bare-bones profile identifying him only as “Law Enforcement at Private, Miami, Florida”.
TruthFinder says he’s single; lives with his 79-year-old mother in a 3-bed 3-bath home in Hollywood/Pembroke Pines, Florida, which is owned by the mother.
Please help me find more information on Deputy Marshall Peterson. I’ll update this post when I have more information.
H/t FOTM‘s Maryaha

Update (April 28, 2018)

Deputy Peterson’s obituary makes no mention of the cause of death (h/t JoAnn):

He was an active member of the Renegade Corvette Club where he enjoyed displaying his 2010 Corvette Z16 Grand Sport.
He is survived by his loving mother, Carol, sister Patti, brother-in-law Tim, niece Amanda and nephew Timmy.
Gathering of family and friends will take place on Sunday, April 29, 2018, from 2:00 – 4:00 PM with Tribute of a Lifetime Service at 2:30 PM at Boyd-Panciera Family Funeral Care, Hollywood Boulevard Chapel.
Two Broward County deputies dead within a month — both in the prime of their lives, from non-job related, unspecified causes. Hmm . . . .
