    Redefinition of "Conspiracy Theory"

    While we were not watching, conspiracy theory has undergone Orwellian redefinition.

    A “conspiracy theory” no longer means an event explained by a conspiracy. Instead, it now means any explanation, or even a fact, that is out of step with the government’s explanation and that of its media pimps.

    For example, online news broadcasts of RT have been equated with conspiracy theories by the New York Times simply because RT reports news and opinions that the New York Times does not report and the US government does not endorse.

    In other words, as truth becomes uncomfortable for government and its Ministry of Propaganda, truth is redefined as conspiracy theory, by which is meant an absurd and laughable explanation that we should ignore.

    When piles of carefully researched books, released government documents, and testimony of eye witnesses made it clear that Oswald was not President John F. Kennedy’s assassin, the voluminous research, government documents, and verified testimony was dismissed as “conspiracy theory.”

    In other words, the truth of the event was unacceptable to the authorities and to the Ministry of Propaganda that represents the interests of authorities.

    The purest example of how Americans are shielded from truth is the media’s (including many Internet sites’) response to the large number of professionals who find the official explanation of September 11, 2001, inconsistent with everything they, as experts, know about physics, chemistry, structural engineering, architecture, fires, structural damage, the piloting of airplanes, the security procedures of the United States, NORAD’s capabilities, air traffic control, airport security, and other matters. These experts, numbering in the thousands, have been shouted down by know-nothings in the media who brand the experts as “conspiracy theorists.”

    This despite the fact that the official explanation endorsed by the official media is the most extravagant conspiracy theory in human history.

    Let’s take a minute to re-acquaint ourselves with the official explanation, which is not regarded as a conspiracy theory despite the fact that it comprises an amazing conspiracy. The official truth is that a handful of young Muslim Arabs who could not fly airplanes, mainly Saudi Arabians who came neither from Iraq nor from Afghanistan, outwitted not only the CIA and the FBI, but also all 16 US intelligence agencies and all intelligence agencies of US allies including Israel’s Mossad, which is believed to have penetrated every terrorist organization and which carries out assassinations of those whom Mossad marks as terrorists.

    In addition to outwitting every intelligence agency of the United States and its allies, the handful of young Saudi Arabians outwitted the National Security Council, the State Department, NORAD, airport security four times in the same hour on the same morning, air traffic control, caused the US Air Force to be unable to launch interceptor aircraft, and caused three well-built steel-structured buildings, including one not hit by an airplane, to fail suddenly in a few seconds as a result of limited structural damage and small, short-lived, low-temperature fires that burned on a few floors.

    The Saudi terrorists were even able to confound the laws of physics and cause WTC building seven to collapse at free fall speed for several seconds, a physical impossibility in the absence of explosives used in controlled demolition.

    The story that the government and the media have told us amounts to a gigantic conspiracy, really a script for a James Bond film. Yet, anyone who doubts this improbable conspiracy theory is defined into irrelevance by the obedient media.

    Anyone who believes an architect, structural engineer, or demolition expert who says that the videos show that the buildings are blowing up, not falling down, anyone who believes a Ph.D. physicist who says that the official explanation is inconsistent with known laws of physics, anyone who believes expert pilots who testify that non-pilots or poorly-qualified pilots cannot fly airplanes in such maneuvers, anyone who believes the 100 or more first responders who testify that they not only heard explosions in the towers but personally experienced explosions, anyone who believes University of Copenhagen nano-chemist Niels Harrit who reports finding unreacted nano-thermite in dust samples from the WTC towers, anyone who is convinced by experts instead of by propaganda is dismissed as a kook.

    In America today, and increasingly throughout the Western world, actual facts and true explanations have been relegated to the realm of kookiness. Only people who believe lies are socially approved and accepted as patriotic citizens.

    Indeed, a writer or newscaster is not even permitted to report the findings of 9/11 skeptics. In other words, simply to report Professor Harrit’s findings now means that you endorse them or agree with them. Everyone in the US print and TV media knows that he/she will be instantly fired if they report Harrit’s findings, even with a laugh. Thus, although Harrit has reported his findings on European television and has lectured widely on his findings in Canadian universities, the fact that he and the international scientific research team that he led found unreacted nano-thermite in the WTC dust and have offered samples to other scientists to examine has to my knowledge never been reported in the American media.

    Even Internet sites on which I am among the readers’ favorites will not allow me to report on Harrit’s findings.

    As I reported earlier, I myself had experience with a Huffington Post reporter who was keen to interview a Reagan presidential appointee who was in disagreement with the Republican wars in the Middle East. After he published the interview that I provided at his request, he was terrified to learn that I had reported findings of 9/11 investigators. To protect his career, he quickly inserted on the online interview that my views on the Iraq and Afghanistan invasions could be dismissed as I had reported unacceptable findings about 9/11.

    The unwillingness or inability to entertain any view of 9/11 different from the official view dooms to impotence many Internet sites that are opposed to the wars and to the rise of the domestic US police state. These sites, for whatever the reasons, accept the government’s explanation of 9/11; yet, they try to oppose the “war on terror” and the police state which are the consequences of accepting the government’s explanation. Trying to oppose the consequences of an event whose explanation you accept is an impossible task.

    If you believe that America was attacked by Muslim terrorists and is susceptible to future attacks, then a “war on terror” and a domestic police state to root out terrorists become necessary to make Americans safe. The idea that a domestic police state and open-ended war might be more dangerous threats to Americans than terrorists is an impermissible thought.

    A country whose population has been trained to accept the government’s word and to shun those who question it is a country without liberty in its future.

    Say what you want about 911, but I personally know PhD and Masters physicists that tell me 911 was actually caused by a plane.

    EDIT: And that's not to say it wasn't an inside job. It just means that you really shouldn't listen to some conspiracist on the internet that explains things in a biased manner without explaining them. One example:

    You said that the Saudi's defied the laws of physics, but 'conveniently' did not bother to mention which ones.

    How do you know the buildings fell at free fall speed? What is free fall speed, if everything falls at a different rate where there is air resistance.

    On a side note, I thought the government admitted building 7 was bombs??? How else could it have been destroyed if it wasn't hit by a plane?

    Some of the conspiracies are true, but you can't take the things that some people say as truths. I won't give a long response, but my own examinations have brought me to believe that the government let these type of things happen so they can pass unpopular laws that would not have been passed under normal circumstances. This has happened overseas and right here in the USA. Steel buildings don't just fall into 30 foot sections after fires, passenger planes constructed of titanium and aluminum don't just vaporize on impact, they also can't fly with the agility of a military aircraft. I think they are covering up government involvement by not investigating.
    You won't like me when I'm angry

    It wasn't really directed at the specific info you presented (because I don't care enough about American politics to read all of it) but in general. Obviously I don't know who you are personally so I can't say what kind of influences you have, but IMO people seem to voice a lot of opinions on the internet that they wouldn't hold in real life. The internet works in strange ways. There's so much information that it becomes a hugely biased and overwhelming product. I know that sounds contradictory, since more sources = less bias, but the internet works in a peculiar way.

    Again, I'm not saying you're easily swayed by the biases of the internet, but ya never know...

    I personally have no opinion on the events of 9/11 and other American things because, like I said, am not American and don't care for their politics. BUT I like to keep an open mind and ALWAYS examine the facts from both sides of the story, which are often difficult to find.

    I don't know if that all made any sense. I'm a bit buzzed...
