Is it really true that America’s richest 1{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} are ‘overwhelmingly Jewish’?

by Eric Zuesse., Washington’s Blog:

Eric Zuesse, originally published at The Saker (where the author’s responses to reader-comments challenging this report, can also be seen)

On September 8th, an article I wrote for Strategic Culture Foundation, “What America’s Aristocracy Want,” was republished at the Donbass (far-eastern formerly Ukrainian) website, “South Front”. The article blamed a lot on America’s billionaires and centi-millionaires, “the American aristocracy” (as I referred to it), who own controlling blocs of stock in America’s largest corporations, and whose political donations control the U.S. federal Government. It defined the powerful Americans whose agenda is harmful for the world, as consisting of the very few richest Americans (and their agents who run their international corporations, ‘nonprofits’, ‘news’media, and lobbying). But the most-heavily up-voted reader-comments there, were from people who clearly received a very different message from that article. They blamed ‘Jews’ — and all of them (not merely the super-rich ones). America’s billionaires who aren’t ‘Jews’ were set aside from blame, in their comments. The first (the most popular) reader-comment was “No, the reason they think they’re superior isn’t being Aryan (quite the opposite) or especially cunning or whatever. They think so because it’s their religion – [the richest] american ‘1{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528}’ is overwhelmingly jewish.” The second-most-favored comment was “America is NOT ruled by an aristocracy. It is ruled by a plutocracy. To be more precise it is ruled by a Judeo-pluto-kleptocracy.” The third-most-favored comment was “A better title would be ‘What America’s Jews Want’.”

So, I decided to see whether or not their basic assumption is true, that most of America’s billionaires and centi-millionaires — most of the people whose money controls the U.S. Government — are Jews. Although, obviously, there’s no scientifically justifiable reason to treat Jewish billionaires differently from non-Jewish ones, those readers believe that there is such a reason; and, so, seeking a possible fact-based reason for those comments (and for their popularity), I concentrated upon the allegation that America’s billionaires are “overwhelmingly Jewish.” It’s something that I had never looked into before, and it certainly would be interesting, if it is true (even if it doesn’t really relate to the question of how rational it is to ignore the impact that non-‘Jew’ish billionaires and centi-millionaires are having on American politics).

The Forbes 400 is the standard list of America’s wealthiest 400 individuals. At the present moment, as this is being written, on September 16th, here are the top 10:

#1: Bill Gates, $81B

#2: Jeff Bezos, $67B

#3: Warren Buffett, $65.5B

#4: Mark Zuckerberg, $55.5B

#5: Larry Ellison, $49.3B

#6: Michael Bloomberg, $45B

#7-8: Charles Koch, $42B

#7-8: David Koch, $42B

#9: Larry Page, $38.5B

#10: Sergey Brin, 37.5B

Zuckerberg, Bloomberg, and Brin, would have been called “Jews” by Adolf Hitler’s Nuremberg Laws (and, since Wikipedia’s censored article there ignores what the implications of being a “Mischlinge” or “mixed-race” person were, here’s that), which I presume is the standard, for what a “Jew” is, that those reader-comments were accepting and applying by their use of the term “Jew” — but those commenters didn’t indicate what they meant by “Jews.” One can only guess, but this seems to be the intent of those most-popular comments. If that’s what they were referencing, then 3 of the top 10 are probably “Jews.”

Next:

#11: Jim Walton, $35.6B

#12: S. Robson Walton, $35.5B

#13: Alice Walton, $35.4B

#14: Sheldon Adelson, $31.8B

#15: Steve Ballmer, $27.5B

#16-17: Jacqueline Mars, $27B

#16-17: John Mars, $27B

#18: Phil Knight, $25.5B

#19: George Soros, $24.9B

#20: Michael Dell, $20B

Adelson, Soros, and Dell, would probably have been treated as “Juden” in Hitler’s Germany.

Next:

#21: Paul Allen, $18.9B

#22: Len Blavatnik, $18.2B

#23: Laurene Powell Jobs, $17.7B

#24: James Simons, $16.5B

#25: Ray Dalio, $15.9B

#26: Carl Icahn, $15.7B

#27: Donald Bren, $15.2B

#28: Charles Ergen, $14.7B

#29: Abigail Johnson, $13.2B

#30: Harold Hamm, $13.1B

Blavatnik, Simons, Icahn, and Bren, probably would have qualified.

#31: Steve Cohen, $13B

#32: Thomas Peterffy, $12.6B

#33: Ronald Perelman, $12.2B

#34: Elon Musk, $11.6B

#35: David Tepper, $11.4B

#36: Eric Schmidt, $11.3B

#37: Lucas Walton, $11.2B

#38: Rupert Murdoch, $11.1B

#39-40: Philip Anschutz, $10.8B

#39-40: Jim Kennedy, $10.8B

Cohen, Perelman, and Tepper, probably would have qualified.

So, amongst the richest 10{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of the Forbes 400 richest Americans — and that’s the richest 40 of them — 13, or 32.5{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528}, would (or at least might) have qualified as “Jews” in Hitler’s Germany. The rest definitely would not. That isn’t “overwhelmingly jewish,” and it’s not even mostly Jewish (not nearly that); it is, instead, 32.5{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} who are possibly ‘Jew’ish, in Hitler’s definition (which seems to be what the commenters are applying, though they didn’t say; perhaps they’re simply not intelligent enough to define their own central terms — and there’s no way of knowing whether, for example, converts to Judaism are “Jews,” to them).

However, what about the 67.5{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528}+, who are non-‘Jews’, and all of whom would have qualified as “Aryans” under Hitler. Why do these readers, who had commented, ignore those “aristocrats” (who still are among the people that really control America)? My article was about “the aristocracy,” not about “the Jews” — not at all. Why are so many readers obsessed with ‘Jews’, as being subjects for special blame, absolving all non-‘Jews’ — even non-‘Jews’ who are far richer than 99.9{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of Jews (according to any definition)? And, why are they blaming those 99.9{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} who are ‘Jews’, but who are not at all super-rich? Where does this religious (or is it racist?) hatred come from? It certainly is counter-factual (in any case). It certainly is delusional. And it certainly is harmful — and not only to Jews. It mis-focuses blame. The same thing happened in the U.S. Jim-Crow-era South, by the many lynchings of innocent Blacks. Everyone suffers bigots — of every type.

And, of course, there are bigots of every type — some are Whites, some are Blacks, some are Jews, some are Christians, etc. The group is irrelevant. So, why do so many people even raise that issue, which isn’t actually an issue, at all?  Slavery in the United States (and the slave-trade) was originally a business owned by the British King, but then became more generally a business owned by the British aristocracy, and subsequently became a business owned by the emerging U.S. aristocracy — and all of these were almost exclusively Christian aristocrats, despite bigots’ emphasis upon the Jews who participated — so, how can any person who has a brain, simply ignore the barbarizms by the Christians who constituted the vast majority of America’s aristocracy, throughout American history. There are good and bad people of all religions, and of no religion, and of every nationality. The group is irrelevant.

Vladimir Putin and Russia versus Zionist Fairytales

by Phil Butler, New Eastern Outlook:

Did you read the latest news that Vladimir Putin is rich and evil? Oh, you don’t read anymore, more power to you. Fake news has it that the Russian president has a new “secret” holiday mansion worth untold millions. Furthermore, some of the stories tell of Putin being the world’s richest and most evil man. For those of you who do not believe in fairytales, here’s a candid look at what Russians are really up against.

My initial reaction to reading “Drone footage shows Putin’s secret island mansion” at 9 News Australia was, “So what if the leader of Russia is rich?” I would have skimmed the article and moved on but for a familiar name popping up. I’ll get to the ousted industrialist shark Bill Browder in a minute, but first it’s important for readers to understand that Putin actually has little need of money in the traditional sense. Every financial magazine, every expert, and hordes of guessing investigators have tried for years to count Vladimir Putin’s gold, and to no avail. Some say he is worth more than Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos combined, but nobody can trace down this immense wealth. Amid all the speculation as to “why” the Panama Papers could not convict Putin, the pointedly obvious shines through. Nobody can trace Putin’s fortune because there isn’t one. But this is fodder for another story, let me move on to the latest Alexei Navalny fairytale and to this Browder character cited in the Australian piece.

I needn’t outline the role and the character of Alexei Navalny again here. The blogger who would be kind of Russia was last seen fueling up his drones for another flyby of Sergey Shoygu’s super secret space station home. Having attempted to label Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev a criminal for the places he’s vacationed at, Navalny seems unable to stop himself proving the insignificant. I think the best reason for Russians to ignore Putin’s biggest detractor is the simple fact he knows nothing of Russian people. Hey Navalny, heads up, Russians don’t care if Putin is rich, they only care if he does his job. Sorry, this western poster boy of change in Russia, he just sets me off. What an idiot. But let’s move on to another famous profiteer who Putin banished from Russia, the founder of Hermitage Capital Management, Bill Browder.

It’s amazing how western mainstream media and the politicians always turn to Putin haters to be experts or to get “proof” on the Russian leader. Haven’t you noticed yet how Russian mafia types like Yukos Oil oligarch Yukos Mikhail Khodorkovsky, and before him the now deceased Boris Berezovsky always pop up as “experts” on Putin? Isn’t it a bit strange that news media in the west never seem to cite people with a positive or moderate stance on Russia’s president? I am sure this coincidence is not because of the scarcity of pro-Putin experts. Whatever the reasoning, the Australian article fueled by Navalny’s drone footage dredges up another ousted financial crook who hates Putin’s guts. Most readers will identify Bill Broder with Hermitage Capital, but few will recall that the investment firm was also funded by one Beny Steimetz, the Israeli oligarch and financier just arrested (August 14) by Israeli and Swiss anti-corruption officials for widescale fraud and money laundering. The Russia privatization shark who was once Israel’s richest man is a subject for another report. I only bring him up here to point at two facets of this war on Putin. First, the Jewish connection in all this is something that just needs to come out. Secondly, the ring of profiteers bent on Putin’s demise all have gigantic skeletons in their wardrobes. A story citing one Putin hater, when investigated, always leads to ten more. This is no coincidence.

Back to Browder, his Hermitage was at one time was the largest foreign portfolio investor in Russia. That was before Vladimir Putin put a stop to the rape of Russia’s legacy and the theft of her assets. This is undeniable fact, and even the lowliest of Russian peasants know it by now. Browder, a Chicago Jew, set out to profit from Russian privatization after Yeltsin, but was thwarted like other sharks when Putin’s hammer fell on other mafiosos. RICO suits, libel cases, tax evasion charges, and ties to some of the seediest characters in world finance highlight the man who pushed the now famous Magnitsky Act into US foreign policy play. It’s no coincidence that Browder has emerged as a central player in the ongoing investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 elections. The privateer who made billions off Russia privatization turned into a human rights activist, and now he’s bent on seeing Donald Trump impeached!

The reader might be surprise to discover the source of the statement “Russia is more dangerous than ISIS” was actually Bill Browder, rather than rabid Arizona Senator John McCain. Or was McCain first? Both Russia haters told reporters of the grave danger to the US at the same time actually, back in May of 2017. Perhaps the narrative of US war hawk politicians and ousted financial henchmen has become just that convergent, but I somehow doubt the coincidence. Both Browder and McCain contend that Russian President Vladimir Putin used the country’s primary security agency, the Federal Security Service (FSB), to meddle in the U.S. presidential election, but neither has shown any proof of their claims. I mention this “coincidental” melding of message for obvious reasons. Or maybe McCain and Browder are now pals as this Browder Tweet on McCain returning to the Senate to do battle against Russia after his hospital stent. What’s most amazing to me is the way FOX and other networks readily use Browder and other suspected criminals without searching out counter arguments for their stories. Maybe Rupert Murdoch can answer that one. And so on, and so on, and so on…

Every time I start researching for one of these stories I end up in a deep and dark rabbit hole of collusion and confusion. In each and every case I end up with Vladimir Putin stoically defending a position against wild assertions with no proof whatsoever. The big picture of the “game” by now is like watching a schoolyard name calling and finger pointing contest. The iconic bullies and thugs are on one end of the yard, while their target stands virtually alone looking as innocent as a lamb for a variety of reasons. It’s become ridiculous, but there’s always more.

A story by Kevin Alfred Strom at the National Vanguard, which was originally published back in 2004, adds light to a facet of the Russia privatization profiteering, and ties into some recent stories of my own here on NEO. “The Silent Coup: Putin vs. the Oligarchs” deals with these ousted oligarchs and the western investors intent on carving up Russia after the wall came down. But more importantly, the piece cites Putin on the case of Jewish mafiosos always seeming to play a role. The story of influence by Israel, AIPAC, and a cadre of Jewish billionaires converge when Strom cites Vladimir Putin in his story. Notable Jewish figures like Boris Berezovsky, Mikhail Friedman, Vladimir Gusinsky, Mikhail Khodorkovsky, and Alexander Smolensky are highlighted in the story alongside Putin’s lesser publicized views on Zionists in Russia at the time of privatization. The piece also points out the Russian people’s utter hatred for most of these Jewish oligarchs, a hatred that has absolutely nothing to do with anti-Semitism by the way. Since Putin seized the Rothschild/Khodorkovsky share of Yukos Oil, Russia has been divesting herself of the only Zionist plot that matters, the ending of Jewish mafia/oligarch control of the country. Not many readers will realize the that Russia’s Central Bank (CBR) is a member of Rothschild BIS.

DC 911 Truth Panel – Christopher Bollyn – “It Was an Israeli Zionist Operation”

from April Watters:

Christopher Bollyn – “It’s Israeli Policy, Not US Policy”

 

ROTHSCHILD ILLUMINATI: 50 Year Old Recording Explains Why The World Is Going Crazy

from End Times Productions:

This is a recording of Myron Fagan from 1967, It describes events we see in the news today with shocking accuracy. Everything was pre planned and they only have one goal. 

The Meaning of 911 Fifteen Years After

from BATR:

What kind of an American are you? Will you mourn the dead or will you celebrate the government as protector of national security? For thoughtful and historically balanced realists the correct reaction is that the last remnants of the Republic collapsed with the twin towers and burned with the response from the Pentagon fire. Most docile and obedient subjects of the despotic regime that have morphed into outright tyranny still believe the official report from The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, provides the definitive details on the 911 investigation.

Fifteen years later, fewer and fewer people reflect on what actually occurred and the profound significance that transformed the country into a permanent belligerent in international affairs and a domestic police state. With the passage of The Patriot Act and The National Defense Authorization Act, the fundamental principles of our constitutional republic were betrayed to the very core of the bone marrow and essence of the nation.

Still, there is another reaction with the passage of the years. As the population becomes more detached to reality and people become immersed into a culture of trivia, self-absorption and detraction; the entire society moves even further into a fatal resignation that government is all powerful and cannot be challenged.

The simple question begs a different answer. Is America safer since the War on Terror was invoked? Surely, no intelligent person could believe we are the Land of the Free. Lamenting the lack of outrage, replaced with a condition of surrender that the evidence found on 911 a saga of deceit and lies is not important, is the greatest legacy of the insidious and planned plot to transfer the United States into a globalist gulag of subjugation to the New World Order.

Frankly, it gets old when the public keeps dismissing the dire state of the existential demise that America faces not from foreign threats, but from internal betrayal and treason coming out of the very officials and power elites that impose the ridiculous narrative spun straight out of the falsehoods that the establishment accepts as gospel articles of faith.

In order to understand the nature of this alternative universe, go down memory lane and examine several of the BATR articles that cover the War OF Terror that came directly from the 911 and the dates when originally published.

The initial essay comes on the heels of the vary day of horror, When Will America Learn?

“America will cease to exist when a public whose emotional naiveté will scream for retribution will readily accept totalitarian measures! Folks, the enemy is us; for our involvement in the creation of hostilities that seeks to obliterate our symbols of ‘Pax American’.”

A month after, The Harsh Economic Costs of 911 essay dealt with the economic consequences and even compared Donald trump to Gail Wynand in Fountainhead by Ayn Rand.

“The reality of this fiction was much different. The expansion of central authority and control over the economy is now on a pace that will rival the collapse of the Twin Towers. The direct causalities of the rebuilding process will be small business, the entrepreneur and the hired help. Corporate America will receive the major share of business, and in the process will sever their remaining higher paid employees. Loyal and experienced personnel will be pushed aside for youth that will work for half the cost. Functions formally considered as automatic, will fail. Services that were once rudimentary will become optional. Business practices that are essential for success will go undone. Problems that require solutions will be multiplied with new ones, stemming from incompetent staff. The products for growth will be ineptitude.”

At the second anniversary,  911 + 2 column covered the taboo topic that links the suicidal foreign policy that protects Israel, which ultimately destroys our own security.

“The Middle East is a drainpipe for perpetual blood and eternal death. The polemic that terrorists hate us because of our freedom is lunacy. The reality is evident for any honest person who has the courage to confront the betrayers. The partnership in crime with Israel is the root cause of regional turmoil. What benefit comes back to America from fighting a war of conquest for Zionist aspirations? As long as U.S. foreign policy serves Lukidnik zealots, our only reward will be piles of bloody body bags.”

The significant article, 911 has become the ultimate excuse, strips away the official bull shit and illustrates the absurdity that the main stream media maintains about the Building 7 implosion.

“Once again your government has been caught in a lie, but this time the vast majority has willingly accepted their blind, deaf and dumb condition. Without a judicious investigation into the Building 7 incident, no serious person can maintain credibility. Hiding from an unpleasant truth, while boasting a vindication for a government gone mad, is even more insane. You can’t trust the crew that deals in treachery. Do your own research on what happened to Building 7, review the evidence provided from the cited sources and draw you own conclusion. But please stop using 911 as a categorical excuse to justify the destruction of America, by the elements that desire the ending of liberty. Most of these forces are the faces you see each day. Now who are you going to believe?”

When seasoned observers challenge the focus and direction of homeland security, the establishment elites desperately want to avoid The Real Threat to National Security.

“Is the threat from foreign terrorists the undertaking of homeland insecurity?  The preoccupation since 911 with a self-serving “War of Terror” has been masked under the appearance of national security.  Tracking down targeted Jihad terrorists and waging regional search and destroy missions has become the growth industry of the new millennium.  The rationale and justification for such a protracted conflict rests upon a cowardly attack on American soil.  If you listen to the official version of events anyone who questions the validity of blaming Islamic Fascists must be unpatriotic.”  

Finally, the assessment a decade later in 911 Ten Years After, has only intensified at this latest water mark of globalization absolutism.

“Our economy is in meltdown. Exercising our freedoms are condemned as expressions of terrorism. Troops serving the transnational corporatist interests are used as, tools or targets, for butchery. The NeoCons and now the NeoLibs, betray every loyal American for their Talmud masters. Those who are unable to distinguish between Zionist rulers and expendable Jews or Israelis, share the same mental disease, as those who buy into the Al-Qaeda 911 myth of Islamic mastermind terrorism. The elites that further their global empires are quite eager to exterminate American, European, Jewish and Moslems in their quest for total supremacy.”

At what point in time and under the fable tale newspeak, which comes out of the politically correct culture will Americans grow up and face the harsh reality that the country is no longer a society that respects bill of right protections? The system of governance has become pure totalitarianism since 911.

For a definite source on constitutional law and civil liberties the incomputable John W. Whitehead from The Rutherford Institute presents a memorable case on indentifying a list of frightful developments during the last fifteen years.

The Tyranny of 9/11: The Building Blocks of the American Police State from A-Z

“Since the towers fell on 9/11, the American people have been treated like enemy combatants, to be spied on, tracked, scanned, frisked, searched, subjected to all manner of intrusions, intimidated, invaded, raided, manhandled, censored, silenced, shot at, locked up, and denied due process.

In allowing ourselves to be distracted by terror drills, foreign wars, color-coded warnings, underwear bombers and other carefully constructed exercises in propaganda, sleight of hand, and obfuscation, we failed to recognize that the true enemy to freedom was lurking among us all the while.

The U.S. government now poses a greater threat to our freedoms than any terrorist, extremist or foreign entity ever could.”

All this methodical repression rests upon the self-justification that 911 requires that citizens must relinquish their God given natural rights to an all imperial and authoritarian state.  This is the final and lasting consequence of accepting scripted disinformation that conceals a false flag and treasonous plot, designed to enable the controllers and traitors to destroy the Republic.

BREAKING ALL THE RULES is weary of the ignorance and complicity of the brain dead  zombies that live a pathetic existence in a virtual mind controlled hellhole. The depths of American Denial have only intensified within the deceptive informational overload society, since 911.

Facts, proof and immutable truth is condemned, whenever such data and empirical evidence contradicts with the storyline myths and illogical scenarios, needed to rationalize the continued World at War. There is no possible peace as long as the 911 fraud continues and idiots believe all the official lies over the last decade and a half. As more time passes into the memory hole of collective ignorance, the imperious despotism intensifies and expands into total tyranny.

What is Missing from Our Lives?

0

from Henry Makow:

There is a great spiritual hunger in society because Satanists have banished the word “God” from polite discourse. 

I see this spiritual hunger in terms of a loneliness and isolation which people try to fill with pets and social media and quasi-religious causes such as environmentalism, climate change, food, exercise and hating Donald Trump. 

Left, Our minds have been trained to shut down at any mention of “God.” Our eyes glaze over.

Satanists say they must banish God because Believers are not “inclusive,” which is true. We are not including Satanists.

Think about the absurdity of this situation. Humanity has been taken over by psychopaths. They have banished the Creator from Creation, at least as far as our society is concerned. Of course, the earth is but a postage stamp in the universe. God is still Omnipresent. 

Obviously these psychopaths regard God as competition. They want to run things and God is an impediment. They can’t have people saying, “Sorry but God tells me you are evil.”  

They are trying to abolish good and evil because God is by definition Good. 

Two thousand years ago, Christ affirmed the existence of true God and you know what happened to him.

The denial of God as a universal Moral Order is a hallmark of the NWO. This includes a denial that we have a Divine soul, a conscience, which connects us to God. 

The mob is used to listen to us, who pay it for its attention and obedience. By these means we shall create such a blind force that it will never be capable of taking any decision without the guidance of our agents, placed by us for the purpose of leading them. Protocols of Zion 10-9

STRAW GOD

They discredited God by describing Him in ridiculous terms. For example:

Q- If God existed, why does he let bad things happen? 

A- God is the principle of human development and is not responsible for what people who reject Him do. The whole point is that mankind must come to Him.

Q- If God is an old man in the sky who takes a personal interest in each and everyone one of us, why aren’t we feeling it?  

A- Because we have replaced God with worthless trinkets and don’t have a relationship with him.

Occultists have an understanding of spiritual truth . Harold Rosenthal explained in 1976: 

“Your people never realize that we offer them only worthless baubles that cannot bring fulfillment. They procure one and consume it and are not filled. We present another. We have an infinite number of outward distractions, to the extent that life cannot again turn inward to find its definite fulfillment. You have become addicted to our medicine through which we have become your absolute masters…”

We have converted the people to our philosophy of getting and acquiring so that they will never be satisfied. A dissatisfied people are pawns in our game of world conquest. Thus, they are always seeking and never able to find satisfaction. The very moment they seek happiness outside themselves, they become our willing servants.”

Needless to say,  we must heed the Designer’s Instructions, not thumb our nose at Him, if we are going to achieve our potential. 

If there is a Creation, there must be a Creator. If there is a hunger for God, then there must be a God.  We need a relationship with Him. I suspect that Prayer may facilitate this. We need a new and better understanding of God.

CONVERSATIONS WITH AN AIRLINE PILOT ABOUT 9/11

0

by James Perloff, JamesPerloff.com:

Since publishing “9/11 Simplified,” I’ve received emails from six pilots, none of whom accept the official 9/11 story. Two were scheduled to fly in Boeings on the morning of 9/11.

Another is a UK-born pilot with about 20 years of flight experience. He is still actively flying as a captain on Airbus A300s, and spent many years training airline pilots. He has provided me with so many technological insights into aviation and 9/11 that I felt I should publish excerpts from our exchanges. For enhancement, I have added a few graphics and embedded some of the video clips he referred me to. For clarity, my comments are in bold and his in normal font. Of course, what we originally said has been rearranged into a more orderly sequence.

 

To keep his identity confidential, I’ll call him “Pilot A.” Some of his remarks bear on 9/11 in general, and some are specific to my article “9/11 Simplified,” so it will be helpful to readers if they are familiar with that post, which I may eventually republish in a revised edition.

Pilot A greeted me saying:
Great shows about “9-11 simplified” and I agree with most of your analysis so far, so please keep up the good work.

He knew from personal experience that the U.S. government’s theory of how the Twin Towers collapsed is bogus.

I know, like many others do, that heavy fuel like diesel and jet fuel cannot melt steel. Even Oxy-Acetylene or Oxy-Propane cutting torches require large amounts of high pressure oxygen injected into the fuel stream to melt steel, and it takes some time to get thick steel up to a softening/melting state. I went to tech college in the 90s to qualify as a welder and gas cutting was one of the disciplines. I’ve spend countless hours cutting and fabricating steel. I had an experience with an old 600 gallon diesel tank which I was cutting the top off to convert into a storage box. In the bottom below the drain plug level was some remaining fuel and sludge, but as I got about 3/4 of the way through cutting the lid off, the molten metal ignited the fuel in the bottom. The dirty fire that poured out the top burned for about 30 minutes, but the wafer thin (3 mm) steel didn’t even glow.

Pilot A agreed with my article’s 10-point proposal that small nuclear weapons had destroyed the Towers, and also agreed with the thesis that pre-planted thermite had indeed been used at the level of the “airplane strikes.” Most of us in the 9/11 community have seen the famous footage of molten steel dripping from a corner of the South Tower:

However, Pilot A had an insight about this I had not thought of:

Now I do think they used thermite as it was probably part of the structural weakening component, but could also have been part of the show to try and prove that “Look, jet fuel does melt steel!”

In my article I had discussed various evidences against jetliners striking the Towers, such as the uncontrollable speeds, and the impossible physics of an aluminum tail and wings and flying through 14-inch steel columns without breaking off. I had concluded that cloaked missiles, or possibly drones, were better explanations. I ask Pilot A what the likelihood was of commercial jetliners hitting the Towers:

Well, I have a couple of extra variables to your main idea for you to play with so here goes:

If you’re going to plan a dastardly event like a “New Pearl Harbour” to achieve all the things like more war, military spending, contracts for the corporate criminals, police state etc., then you want as much shock and horror as possible which includes, noise, fire, smoke and destruction on steroids. The planners would need this area of the operation a guaranteed certainty, no chance of foul-ups anywhere, total control, no variables, flawless. You wouldn’t use actual commercial jetliners piloted by humans to achieve this, too much to go wrong. E.g., the pilots could “chicken-out,” miss the towers, partially hit the towers, passengers could over-run the cockpit, the jet fuel might not ignite so no fire and explosion (more on that later), the damage to the building might be too little, pathetically small even, rogue military pilot ignoring orders to buzz off somewhere else might actually shoot the planes down . . . and on and on it goes.

What’s better than planes flying into buildings? The illusion of planes flying into buildings. Especially if it’s a high explosive/incendiary guided missile with some sort of holographic projection device strapped to its back. Better still let’s have 3 or 4 of them for damage consistency to really make a statement. These can be controlled by a central source, have a known and guaranteed outcome because the military has umpteen thousand examples of the destructive power of missiles, and they can be sent to a specific target with pin point accuracy and timing – perfect.

Passenger planes are very difficult to fly accurately with only external visual reference. With no electronic guidance or without heads-up display technology it’s too risky to try and fly into a specific point by line of sight. Not all pilots have the same level of skill or experience, and this sort of thing you only get to practice for real once!! Simulators have their limits as well for this sort of practice. I can almost see the pilots that have probably tried this in the simulators and predict the outcomes. An educated guess would be overcompensation to try and maintain an accurate flight path at high speed. The air that planes fly through isn’t always constant. There are pools and eddies like a river with rocks, changing currents and speeds. All these require constant adjustment which is easily achieved on approach at 140 knots, with all the control surfaces moving at their full potential and the aircraft slow enough to keep inertia to a minimum. But completely impossible for a novice pilot with only some light aircraft flight experience.

I don’t know how you could do a last-minute modification to a flight path to achieve this accuracy at the speed they were supposedly traveling. Once you get above 200 knots all the moving surfaces (Ailerons, Elevators, Rudder) are in high speed mode and become either artificially loaded or movement restricted to prevent excessive loading and structural damage. If you were slightly off course, you couldn’t make any large corrections to the trajectory at the last minute; everything is done gently. Plus eye-balling your way around a city you’ve never flown over before (if you believe the Muslim hijacker theory) is near impossible, even for a local city dweller! The city layout is different when looking down on it and the view from the flight deck is very limited, unlike a Cessna which has great views. And traveling at hundreds of knots makes this all the more idiotic to achieve.

So if the planes missed the towers, or partially struck the towers, or the jet fuel failed to ignite, then the Hollywood-style fireball scene is a flop. Jet fuel, which is basically paraffin, needs certain requirements to burn. Unlike the petrol gas (95/98) stuff that you put in your Chevy, Avtur (Aviation Turbine Fuel) won’t ignite if you pour some on the ground and throw a match or lighter into it. I know, I’ve tried it. It usually requires heat (compression chamber) and/or pressure (injector nozzle) to combust. The likelihood, though, is that it would probably ignite because the engines were hot, but not guaranteed especially if the engines sheared off on the outside of the building. Yet more variables.

But the main problems I have with the plane crashes shown on TV is the lack of fuselage crumpling effect, therefore showing no deceleration at all and the complete melting of the entire machine into the buildings with no debris shattering off on the outside and dropping to the street. The wing’s strength is primarily in the vertical axis, they’re built for lifting so they would shear off at the root upon contact with anything solid. That large leading edge surface area and leverage against the wing root would rip them completely off. Try walking through a doorway with your arms stretched out and feel the force on your shoulders as your arms try to go through the wall. Now the fuel tanks might rupture and some of the fuel might go into the building, but no way the entire plane would.

Also aeroplanes are a semi-monocoque construction like an egg (monocoque) with a frame inside it. But the skin is pulled over the frame under a lot of tension to maintain aerofoil shape and increase strength. But when this highly strung aluminium skin is ruptured; it springs off as the tension is released. In fact it almost explodes off if a large enough area is damaged. Watch the wing and tail of this ATR as it clips a bridge in Taiwan shortly before crashing:

IT’S ON: Christian Group Sues SPLC and Amazon Over ‘Hate Group’ Designation

0

by Tyler O’Neil, Pj Media:

On Tuesday, D. James Kennedy Ministries (DJKM) filed a lawsuit against the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), the charity navigation organization GuideStar, and Amazon for defamation, religious discrimination, and trafficking in falsehood. The SPLC listed DJKM as a “hate group,” while GuideStar also categorized it in those terms, and Amazon kept the ministry off of its charity donation program, Amazon Smile.

“We embarked today on a journey to right a terrible wrong,” Dr. Frank Wright, president and CEO at DJKM, said in a statement Tuesday. “Those who knowingly label Christian ministries as ‘hate’ groups, solely for subscribing to the historic Christian faith, are either woefully uninformed or willfully deceitful. In the case of the Southern Poverty Law Center, our lawsuit alleges the latter.”

The SPLC has labeled DJKM an “anti-LGBT hate group” for its opposition to same-sex marriage and transgenderism. “These false and illegal characterizations have a chilling effect on the free exercise of religion and on religious free speech for all people of faith,” Wright declared.

“After having given the SPLC an opportunity to retract, we have undertaken this legal action, seeking a trial by a jury of our peers, to preserve our own rights under the law and to defend the religious free speech rights of all Americans,” the DJKM president concluded.

The lawsuit laid out charges against the SPLC, GuideStar, and Amazon. “SPLC acted knowingly, intentionally, and with actual malice in publishing the Hate Map that included the Ministry and in publishing the SPLC Transmissions to GuideStar that included the ministry,” the suit alleged. “SPLC’s conduct in making these publications was beyond the reckless disregard for the truth standard required by Alabama law for punitive damages.”

The suit claimed that “the Ministry suffered special damages in its exclusion from the AmazonSmile program as a result of SPLC’s publication of the Hate Map and the SPLC Transmissions.”

Specifically, DJKM brought the suit under the Civil Rights Act of 1964 for religious discrimination, under the Lanham Act for trafficking in false or misleading descriptions of the services offered under the ministry’s trademarked name, and for defamation under Alabama common law arising from “the publication and distribution of information that libels the Ministry’s reputation and subjects the Ministry to disgrace, ridicule, odium, and contempt in the estimation of the public.”

The Israel Lobby: Time for a Second Edition

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:
A decade ago in 2007 John J. Mearsheimer, the R. Wendell Harrison Distinguished Service Professor of Political Science and codirector of the Program on International Security Policy at the University of Chicago, and Stephen M. Walt, the Robert and Renee Belfer Professor of International Affairs at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University and Academic Dean of the Kennedy School from 2002-2006, published The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy. The publisher was the prestigeous publishing house, Farrar, Straus and Giroux. The authors made a convincing case that Israel operating through its American lobbies, which are not registered as foreign agents, succeeds in using US foreign policy in Israel’s interests. The authors conclude that the use of US foreign policy in Israel’s interests is damaging to both America’s national interests and to Israel’s long-term security.
