the shocking events of 11th September 2001 during which three modern
multi steel cored high rise buildings were brought down, the truth is
known by many but not admitted to governmentally,
leaving the lie that they were the result of a terrorist attack to
remain as the official truth. From my time in the construction business
I can say with absolute certainty that steel structured buildings
simply do not collapse, even during long
periods of extreme heat, which was not the case in this instance. Not only that but all three came down at near free fall speed, all within the space of a few hours. This could have resulted from nothing other than controlled demolition, leading us to conclude that this was an inside job. JFK to 9/11 Everything is a Rich Man's Trick.

The desired agenda was the
passing of the Patriot Act which trashed the US constitution, and the
military invasion of much of the Middle East, beginning with
Afghanistan. These wars cost millions of lives, trillions of dollars
and had the opposite effect of their stated intention - to reduce and
contain terrorism. The only winners were those individuals who migrated
through the revolving door from Washington to the corporate sector in
the manufacture of weaponry, requiring "forever wars" to sustain it.
The desired result - the destabilization of the entire middle east,
making it easier to manipulate and exploit.
Whilst the world's media reflects on the embarrassment of the USA in
the botched withdrawal from its longest ever war - the 20 year
occupation of Afghanistan, what needs to be discussed is that this war
was launched under FALSE PRETENSE. This was the Orwellian 1984 moment
when the cabal in Washington became the Ministry of Truth.
Note:- in an effort to obfuscate, the second video clip launches about halfway through.
You need to slide the red spot at the end of the red play line back to the beginning.
Above are frames from a third video clip shot from the Hudson River, showing how
the top of one of the WTC towers explodes ahead of its collapse.
USA has yet to admit to the complicity of those powerful personalities
within the "Estabishment" in their control of the nations Defenses on
that fateful day. The original blueprint for this event was hatched in
1962 by the Pentagon Joint Chiefs of Staff led by Chairman Lyman
Lemnitzer, called Operation Northwoods. It involved the highjacking of
planes, replacing them with drones and the staging of terrorist attacks
in the USA which would then be blamed on Fidel Castro, providing the
excuse to invade Cuba. When this plan was presented to President Kennedy, he
dismissed the proposal and removed Lemnitzer from his post.
(Program for a New American Century) was hatched by a handful of
NeoCons in the years leading up to 9/11 and a document they produced in 2000 stated that a new "Pearl
Harbour" (false flag) event was required to
accelerate its agenda. That is exactly
what 9/11 was. After Bush, aided and abetted by the U.S. Supreme Court, stole the 2000 election,
the new bunch of neocons surrounding him were only too eager to revive
and update Operation Northwoods, though this time with the Middle East
in its sights.
find disturbing today is that so many
Americans still accept the official explanation, even though it is
so blatantly contrived. It is itself merely a conspiracy theory, not
supported either by science or by the

course, this could never be allowed to happen and the official

assassination of JFK.
am of the
that the western world is now largely run by a mafia of rich family
dynasties, mostly American, which own and control all the major banking
and corporate interests, often referred to as the "Deep State", who's
people hold key posts in the CIA, FBI, NSA and other departments of
importance. The democracy we think exists is no more than
a thinly disguised veil. Most institutions set up to protect us from
exploitation, including the judicial system, are now paid for or manned
by personnel from the very interests from which we seek protection. Note
that more recently, those who risked all to bring us the truth of the
deceit secretly enacted by our governments in our name, like Chelsea
Manning and Julian Assange, now languish in jail without proper legal
representation, whilst Edward Snowdon, who revealed the widespread
eavesdropping agenda, has had to accept asylum in
Russia, where he has remained safe for the past 8 years. Steven
Donziger, the human rights lawyer who won a $10bn lawsuit against
Chevron on behalf of the indigenous peoples of the Amazon basin, who's
habitat had been contaminated, has been persecuted by a U.S.
judicial system captured by Chevron, which has yet to pay a cent the
Ecuadorian government. Doctors who threatened the revenue stream of Big
introducing a cheap safe cure for cancer with no known side effects
have been and continue to be persecuted. In the USA Jeff Bradstreet had his premises raided and was
then murdered and in the UK David Noakes had his premises raided and spent a year in a UK jail whilst his
assistant Lynda Thyer was extradited under EU law to France to
languish for a year in a Paris prison. Last
year, David Noakes was also extradited to jail in France, but managed
to escape on bail at the beginning of this year. That will, no
doubt, be the last we hear of them, certainly in the mainstream media.

I came across an excellent history lesson of the past 100 years, a
YouTube documentary put together and narrated by an English history
professor entitled "JFK to 9/11 Everything is a Rich Man's Trick",
a link to which I posted below. It has now been removed from YouTube
(it was only a matter of time), but may still be watched by following
this link. Watch it whilst you can.
consider it to be an excellent and accurate, though unorthodox history
lesson of that part of our recent past we have not been taught at
school or via the mainstream media. Though 3.5hrs long, you will find it
quite compelling viewing, concurring with many of the topics already
touched upon on this page. The Englishman who so expertly put this
documentary together was attempting to raise some cash through an Indegogo crowdfunding page with
the aim of producing a Part 2, but that page was sabotaged within days
of it going up. I don't know how well his efforts are proceeding but I
wish him well.
Many competent studies have been made by
scientists, journalists, architects and engineers, resulting in dozens
of books, documentaries and a tsunami of internet information, all
coming to the same conclusion - that we have been lied to -
deliberately misled. At the foot of the page are links to both books
and documentaries which may be viewed online. In solving any crime, there is one overriding imperative that detectives must follow to identify the perpetrators: follow the money. The link below is an investigation of the 9/11 money trail. The Corbett Report, published on 11 Sep 2015, 59 min.
What took place on the 11th September 2001 was
a massive deception - pure theatre! When three modern multi-steel cored
high rise buildings - engineered to withstand earthquakes, hurricanes
etc. and more specifically the impact of jumbo jets and the resultant
fires - all collapsed in their entirety at almost free-fall speed, the
3rd neatly into its own footprint, leaving not even a single thread of
core remaining, this could have been the result of nothing less than an
expertly executed controlled demolition, which take many months to prepare for. To suggest otherwise is to
relegate America's fraternity of highly trained and qualified building
engineers to the realms of incompetence. Nowhere in the world has a
single steel framed building ever collapsed in its entirety due to fire.
Indelibly engrained in our memories are
the images appearing on television screens around the world of
exploding aviation fuel billowing forth from the upper floors of the
twin towers of New York's World Trade Centre in down-town Manhattan after reportedly being struck by passenger jets less than 1 hour apart . Within
the next 2 hours both towers had completely collapsed, followed later
in the day by the total collapse of nearby WTC building 7.
The documentary "In Plane Site" shows us clips from video footage of the plane that hit the WTC South Tower. It varies in several ways from a regular Boeing 767 passenger
jet and appears to have something attached to it's underbelly. My
belief is that this plane was a "drone" with its nose packed with
after the towers were hit, something managed to punch a neat round hole
approx 5m in diameter through six of the recently strengthened
reinforced concrete walls of a section of the the Pentagon building in
Washington DC which was conveniently out of service at the time, almost
reaching the inner courtyard. It is then believed to have been quickly
removed, hidden under a tarpaulin. Official sources and the media
reported this to be a third passenger jet, yet not a single frame of
photographic evidence has surfaced to support this claim. Were a
passenger jet to crash into such a structure, one might expect the two
6 ton titanium jet engines, one on each wing, to penetrate the
building, whilst the light and flimsy remainder of the aircraft would
simply crumble against the outer wall, leaving an immense amount of
debris on the lawn, but.... where was it all? Why was there only
one hole, not two, and why were the engines and landing gear not found?
Subsequent analysis by many experts and engineers conclude that only a
fighter jet travelling at high speed or a missile could have made such
penetration. Only a U.S. military fighter jet would have a transponder
fitted that would enable it to breach all 4 levels of high security
surrounding this most heavily guarded building in the world. A
missile would be travelling much faster. A 757 passenger jet is 178'-8"
long. It's maximum speed, possible only at high altitude is 530mph or
approx 778 ft per second. At ground level it moves considerably slower. The frames below, widely available on many
websites, cover a time frame of max 2 seconds.The height of the
building is 77ft., so the horizontal distance from point of impact to
edge of frame is approx. 250ft. A Jumbo Jet could not have
crossed this space without being caught on at least some of the frames.
fourth passenger jet was also reported hijacked and to have crashed in
a forest clearing in Pennsylvania, after passengers overpowered
hijackers, leaving a small crater in the ground but mysteriously no
wreckage, luggage or passengers, only a scattering of tiny fragments.
Another site related to this incident was also cordoned off in the
forest several miles away, but no reporters were allowed access.
It has since been reported that the plane's engines were located in
this area. This suggests that it may have been shot down.
What happened to WTC Building 7 is rather curious. Barry Jennings, Deputy Director of Emergency Services Department for the New York City Housing Authority, and Michael Hess, NYC Corporation Counsel,
entered the building on the morning of Sep 11 shortly after the first
plane hit the North Tower. When they got to their respective floors they found the building hastily evacuated - there were still hot cups of coffee on desks etc. They were advised to leave but on their descent there was an explosion that severely shook the building. The stairwell landing below them gave way and they had to climb back up to the 8th floor. They thought they were trapped as the stair wells had been damaged. Miraculously, after a long wait, they were rescued by firemen. When they reached the ground floor they found it a burnt out shell and were told by the firemen not to look down - they were stepping over bodies. The explosion responsible for all this devastation occurred BEFORE the collapse of the WTC's towers1 & 2! Barry Jennings was later interviewed and appears on at least
one of the subsequent documentaries, but his testimony was never sought
by the official 9/11 investigation. He died on 19 August 2008, just 2
days before the NIST Final Report on the collapse of WTC7 was
due for release, but his death was not reported, explained or
investigated. He was one of many key 9/11 witnesses to die in
mysterious circumstances. Read more
before and just after the first plane struck the north tower explosions
were reported below the basement. Two key witnesses to this were William Rodriguez, a maintenance engineer of 19 years service at the WTC and Kenneth Johannemann, a part time janitor.
Both were in the building when the explosions occurred and rescued
injured persons. Rodrigues was the only one around with a master key to
the stairwells and re-entered the building several times with firemen
to rescue more people and allow the evacuation of hundreds who would
otherwise have been trapped. He was the last person to exit the tower
moments before it's collapse and survived only by diving under a fire
truck. The testimony of these two key witnesses was never sought in the
official investigation. Both men lost their workplace and consequently
their jobs, then experienced difficulty in securing further
employment. On 31 August, 2008, Johannemann died of a gunshot wound to the head. This was reported as suicide.After
these contrived attacks, the American government immediately blamed a Muslim
fundamentalist terrorist organisation named Al Qaeda, led by Osama bin
Laden, who supposedly made the preparations for the "attack" whilst
hiding in caves in the mountains of Afghanistan.
scenario is arguably the biggest confidence trick played on the
American public, and indeed on the whole world, since February1933,
when Hitler torched the Reichstag Parliament Building in Germany,
putting the blame on communist "terrorists"! Up until Hitler's reign,
the civilian population of Germany had enjoyed the democratic and
personal freedoms that we have all become accustomed to in the West,
but that was all about to come to an end.
response to this deceptively engineered "terrorist attack" Hitler got
the mandate he required to introduce the "Enabling Act", which removed
civil liberties and granted him dictatorial powers. What followed was
the hanging of Communist Party leaders followed by the harassment and
persecution of Germany's Jewish community, culminating in the Holocaust
which left more than 6 million Jews dead, systematically gassed after
first being starved in concentration camps. Then followed military
aggression as the German army invaded Poland and beyond, the Allied
Forces response to which was the beginning of World
War 2. For much of World War 2, America was content to sit back
and watch whilst profiteering from the sale (on tick) of arms to
Britain, leaving Britain with a crippling national debt that took
decades to repay. Only when America's privileged few saw the
opportunity for financial gain by becoming actively engaged in the war,
did it provoke the Japanese into attacking Pearl Harbour, thus enabling
public opinion at home to be rallied into backing U.S. military
engagement under the pretext of Self Defence.
similar deception took place not long after the assassination of
President John F Kennedy. In August 1964 two U.S. war ships in the Gulf
of Tonkin were reported attacked by Vietnamese communists, following
which Kennedy's successor by default, Lyndon B Johnson, obtained the
mandate he needed for a full scale invasion of Vietnam. But... the
Tonkin incident never actually happened!
this 11 year war, almost 60,000 American servicemen died, over 300,000
were wounded and 75,000 were left severely disabled. More than 3
million Vietnamese lost their lives in this war - Vietnam and its
people were left decimated. So... what did this war actually achieve
other than acute, prolonged human suffering and the sustained
generation of huge profits by the USA's military industrial complex, with Vietnam a testing ground for the development of new weaponry?
chapters of modern history are mentioned here because there are
parallels to be drawn between them, the events of 9/11 and what followed. The USA,
with the aid of Britain, now had an excuse for military aggression
towards Afghanistan and Iraq, action that President George W.
Bush and Britain's Prime Minister, Tony Blair had been discussing
privately for more than a year prior to 9/11.
people died in New York on the morning of 9/11. The families of the
dead pleaded with the authorities not to seek revenge, yet in the weeks
immediately following 9/11, the USA led bombing raids into Afghanistan
which left more than 10,000 innocent Afghan civilians dead - more than
3 times the number of 9 /11 casualties - and many more maimed. This was
an illegal invasion of another nation, as was the subsequent invasion
of Iraq, which was pursued by the USA and Britain in March 2003
despite massive popular protests and demonstrations in major
cities all over the USA, in London, and in fact throughout the
world. Our voices - those of ordinary citizens, no longer
have any effect upon government decision making - they are tolerated
people of Iraq had already been made to suffer 10 years of sanctions
and daily sorties (bombing raids) in the no-fly zones. Since the
invasion began there have been over a million deaths.
Back to 9/
11 - there are no startling new revelations on this page - all the
information is already out there in the public domain, in newspapers,
magazines, books, documentaries and lots more on the world wide web.
Our purpose here is not to get bogged down in argument with the
official 9/11 report, which at best contains inadequate explanations
and at worst is a conspiracy to conceal the truth. The gauntlet has already been
taken up by a great number of distinguished persons - professors,
scientists, architects, engineers, historians, journalists, pilots, ex
military and intelligence men, explosives and demolition experts, plus
a myriad of groups simply seeking the "truth" that has been denied and
concealed. Examining the wealth of evidence that contradicts the
official version of events and looking back at similar historical
deceptions, we hope to present a picture of the world's powerhouse as
it really is, not as the mainstream media desribe it. After 9/11 the words Terror and Terrorism were were repeated ad
nausium to generate paranoia and a sense of insecurity among America's
civilian population. This page is an attempt to summarise the events of
9/11/2001 along with some pertinent background, following which we must
explore how this event has changed our lives and may continue to impact
upon our future.
|Briefly, the official explanation goes like this: |
Bin Laden sent 19 Al Qaeda agents on a suicide mission to hijack 4 U.S.
passenger planes and fly them into buildings - the twin towers of the
World Trade Centre in New York , the Pentagon and the White House in
Washington DC. 3 planes successfully evaded all of the many layers of
security protocol to reach their targets. Multiple
government failures prevented any defence. The towers collapsed as a
result of fire. The plane that hit the Pentagon vaporised on impact. The passengers of the 4th plane overcame the hijackers, then it crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
days of 9 /11 names and pictures were released of 19 alleged hijackers.
However, none of their names appeared on the 4 flight manifests. Some
reported to the U.S. authorities during the weeks that followed to say
that they were still alive and were elsewhere when the hijackings took
place. Most, possibly all, were earlier recruited by the CIA for
guerilla warfare training at camps
in either Afghanistan or Saudi Arabia. Some had already seen active
duty in Bosnia during the 90's. Al Qaeda was originally the database of
the names of these recruits. By the mid 90's it had become known as a
sinister terrorist organization headed by Osama bin Laden.
|Osama bin Laden:|
bin Laden family are incredibly wealthy Saudis. In Saudi Arabia their
wealth is second only to the Royal Family. Their relationship with the
Bush family dates back to pre world war 2. They
have billions of dollars invested in the U.S.A. and ex Attorney
General James Ashcroft is one of their financial advisers. Another is
Jim Bath, former director of discredited bank BCCI, who has financial
stakes in the aircraft business and George W's Arbusto Oil Company. All
of the bin Ladens who reside in the U.S. were issued diplomatic
passports in 1996. The 'red herring' in all of this is the
deliberate deception that Osama was the 'black sheep' of the family. He was the creation of the CIA, trained by the U.S. at guerilla warfare training camps and deployed in Afghanistan at the time the U.S. wished to end Soviet occupation there. After 9/11, a video reportedly found in an Afghan cave
shows Osama and someone else talking in Arabic. The mass media played
this repeatedly, telling us that the conversation was them plotting
9/11. Translation shows that they were merely reacting to the news of
9/11 after the event. Read more
|After 9/11 Osama publicly denied responsibility for the attacks, saying: "After
the recent attacks, which the U.S. has witnessed, the U.S. government
ventured to point fingers at me, accuse me of involvement. The U.S.
government has consistently blamed me for being behind every occasion
its enemies attack it. I would like to assure the world that I did not
plan the recent attacks which seem to have been planned by people for
personal reasons. As for me, I have been living in the Islamic emirate
of Afghanistan and following its leader's rules. The current leader
does not allow me to exercise such operations."|
|There are 3 DEAD GIVE-AWAYS regarding the implausibility of the official explanation... |
ADVANCE WARNINGS were received and ignored, both from official external
sources and from within the U.S.A. The Israeli Government sent warnings
to President Bush and so did Russia's President Putin. Sources inside
the country who tried to alert the authorities were not only ignored,
but often ridiculed or threatened.
TRADING - in the trading days leading up to 9/11the level of put
options (Stock Market bets on the value of a stock falling in value)
purchased for shares in United Airlines and American Airlines (the two
airlines purportedly used in the 9/11 attacks) soared to between 60 and
285 times normal levels, according to an alarmed CBS news report on
10th September 2001. Trading of shares in other airline stocks remained
at normal levels.
PROMOTIONS of the very personnel responsible for the inferred
incompetence that led to total multiple failures to respond to the
highest level of threat to U.S. security experienced since the height
of the Cold War in the early 1960's, following the first reported
hijacking and for the next several hours.
When senior personnel
fail in their duties, leading to serious consequences, they are usually
sacked, fined, disciplined or reprimanded in other ways. For them to be
promoted can only be viewed as the administration's way of thanking
them for successfully carrying out their orders.
Some of those Promoted:-
General Ralph Eberhart - head of NORAD
Richard Myers - in charge at The Pentagon
Brigadier General Montague Winfield - in charge of National Military Command Centre
Captain Charles Leidig - acting Director of National Military Command Centre
Ben Sliney - in charge of The Federal Aviation Authority.
Pasqual D'Amuro - FBI's head of New York counter-terrorism.
Steven Abbot - coordinator of Dick Cheney’s task force on problems of national preparedness.
Marion Bowman - head of the FBI’s National Security Law Unit (blocked FBI investigations into the alleged hijackers before 9/11).
The official investigation failed
to explain or even to ask why the top officials in the U.S. military
chain of command were missing in action during the attacks.
Bush and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice appeared on television

term "Ground Zero" has been around since long before the events of
9/11. It's precise dictionary meaning is the point on the ground immediately above
or below where a nuclear explosion has occurred. Dimitri Khalezov
informs us that he is an ex government official of the old Soviet Union
who was employed in this capacity during the period leading up to the
building of New York's World Trade Centre complex. Under the nuclear
proliferation treaty that existed, information regarding nuclear usage
for domestic purposes was shared between the USA and the Soviet Union. In
2010 he gave a television interview in review of his book 'The Third
Truth' stating that before permission was granted to build the World
Trade Centre in such a densely populated area, a demolition plan had to
be in place. The demolition plan approved encompassed underground
nuclear explosive devices, one for each building. Similar devices are
reportedly also in place beneath the UN headquarters building in New
York and the Sears Tower building in Chicago, which incidentally was
also evacuated on the morning of 9/11.|
the vast quantity of fine dust generated, along with the hot spots
below the ground of all three collapsed buildings, where pools of
molten steel remained for many weeks after, lends credence to this
He also suggests that a nuclear-tipped "Granit" missile with 500 kiloton warhead was used in the Pentagon attack.

pop icon Donna Summer was in New York on 11th September 2001 and could

claimed her life on May 17th, 2012, age 63.|
of thermite and barium found in analysis of dust samples collected and
reports of multiple explosions by both bystanders and news reporters
immediately before the collapse suggest that multiple high explosive
charges were attached to the steel cores to aid the demolition process.
All accessible remains of the steel structure were reportedly removed
by truck and shipped overseas for recycling, allowing no opportunity
for forensic examination.|
|More startling evidence surfaced in 2011 with the publication of an extensively researched and illustrated book entitled "Where Did The Towers Go", authored by a highly qualified engineer, Dr Judy Wood. Strange phenomena such as motor vehicles in the vicinity (some beyond the area of fallen debris) self igniting, "toasted" cars and vehicles (insulated by their rubber tyres from the ground) with
all metal parts - engines, door handles etc. - simply gone - vaporised!
Just the illustration on the cover alone reveals that instead of the
floors falling pancake fashion, much of their content was left simply
suspended in the air as nothing more than talcum powder like dust. The
book suggests that a wireless energy technology, reminiscent of that
discovered by Nikola Tesla over a hundred years ago (but bypassed in favour of Edison's hard wired electricity which could be metered and sold) was used as a weapon to destroy the steel structures (half a million tons in each building) transforming
them into dust. Had all that volume hit the ground it would have caused
a jolt measuring far more than the negligible 2.something Richter scale
readings reported on the day. Another strange phenomena that day was
hurricane Erin on a NW course heading directly at New York, which
stopped dead in its track just off the coast, hovered stationary for
half a day, then headed directly east away from New York. Could HAARP
have played a roll here?|
December 2012 update:For
several years leading up to the events of 9/11, Susan Lindauer was a
CIA "Asset" engaged in the capacity of secret messenger between the
American Government and several Middle East countries, primarily Iraq
and Lybia. After 9/11 she was silenced (indicted) for 5 years and was one
of the first to be jailed for over a year without charge under
the 'Patriot Act'. Determined to tell her story she later wrote a book
- Extreme Prejudice, first published on 15 Oct 2010 - in which she
reveals that the government had foreknowledge of:
1. planes to be flown into the WTC towers
2. detonation of a thermo nuclear device in New York.
Among her many revelations:
The 19 named hijackers were all CIA "assets".
explosives that melt steel were brought into the WTC by unmarked
vehicles between 3.00am and 5.00am for approx. 10 consecutive nights
prior to the attacks.
Invasion of Iraq was the primary goal and
desperate attempts were being made in the months before the attack to
find anything that could possibly implicate Iraq to it.

October 2012, Susan Lindauer gives talk followed by Question & Answer session - view on YouTube
of the most shameful developments following the events of 9/11 was the
establishment by the US of detention camps outside the USA, where
suspected terrorists were held indefinitely without charge, trial or
legal representation and where captives were subject to torture - in
total violation of the Geneva Convention to which the USA is a signatory. In
his 2008 election campaign, President Obama pledged to close Guantanamo
Bay detention camp - why did it survive his entire 8 year term in
office and still remain functional 3 years into the Trump presidency? Abu Graib is on the outskirts of Baghdad, used previously by Saddam Hussein to torture and execute. Camp Bucca detention camp in south east Iraq remained functional till 17th September 2009. There were others in the Balkans of which less detail is known.|

September 2020 update
we entered the 3rd decade of the 21st century, global warming - the
result of man-made climate change, was becoming all too apparent with
wildfires raging across California, Australia, the Amazon basin and
elswhere, whilst storms and severe flooding also displaced many around the globe.
much of the western world looked on with disinterest, unprepared, as
China went into lockdown in the face of Covid 19, a new coronavirus
pandemic. The ease of air travel ensured that within weeks it had
reached all corners of the globe. The consequences have been tragic.
There has been much speculation as to whether the virus occurred
naturally or was man made. An Australian virologist, having examined
the virus, expressed the view that it was so uniquely tailored to
affect humans as opposed to animals, that the chances of it having
occurred naturally are remote. A plausible hypothosis of its origin
that I came
across is described briefly below:
cracks appearing in our already fragile economies have been exacerbated
as supply chains were disrupted and cities, states and countries went
into lockdown. Whether intentional or not, this prolonged drama has had
the effect of psychologically conditioning us for obedience under
authoritarian rule. As restrictions are relaxed, new spikes are
occurring. The most likely places for contracting the disease are
public gatherings, public transport, cruiseships, airports and air
travel, where air conditioning systems recycle the air. The severely hit
travel and tourist industries will no doubt take a long time to recover.
2012 six Chinese miners were sent into the derelict, bat infested
Mojiang Mine in Yunnan Province. They all fell ill with symptoms
similar to those of Covid19. Three died. The bats which infected them
carried a virus 96% similar to Covid 19. Virus samples from the six
miners were sent to the Wuhan Laboratory. Either the mutation of the virus had
already occurred through being present in a new host (the miners) or
its development was speeded up in the lab before being released
late last year, most probably by accident, though we cannot be certain of this. Several western nations
fund and have an interest in the Wuhan lab, from which there have been
numerous instances of viruses accidentally escaping in recent years.
One of the first corona virus songs to surface on YouTube originated in Dominica - Plandemic.
Commonwealth of Dominica ranks 3rd in the world at containing the

only 21 cases, 3 of which were active (recent arrivals who were in strict quarantine) and no
In the summer of 2021protocols for arriving travelers were relaxed and
cruise ships allowed to return, just as the delta variant had begun
infecting the vaccinated, though typically displaying no symptoms.
After keeping covid at bay for a year and a half we are now struggling
to contain a surge in cases, hampered by a social media anti vax
campaign. As of early September 2021, we have had our first 5 deaths
from covid 19, all during the past month.
.Some background history
27 February 1933: The
German Riechstad Parliament Building was burnt down by Hitler, who then
blamed communist terrorists and as a result obtained the mandate he
required to pass the "Enabling Act" which effectively overrode civil
rights and liberties.
16 June 1933: Enacted - the U.S. Banking Act of 1933, otherwise known as the Glass–Steagall Act. It imposed banking reforms to protect customers from speculative banking practices.
July 1934: High
ranking U.S. military man, Smedly Butler, was approached by a group of
wealthy US businessmen to orchestrate a coup. The group included
U.S.Steel, Standard Oil, Goodyear, Heinz, General Motors, Chase
National Bank and Prescott Bush, grandfather to George W Bush. Butler
went along with the plot until exposing it in November 1934. President
Roosevelt then made a behind closed doors deal with the group and no
more was reported.
7 December 1941: Having provoked the Japanese with an oil embargo, U.S. military intelligence had foreknowledge of the imminent attack
on Pearl Harbour, Hawaii, where it had a military base, but failed to
alert it's ground forces there. They were unprepared when Japan struck.
2,402 Americans were killed and 1,282 wounded. The U.S.A. was then able
to generate the mandate it required to enter World War II.
18 June 1948: NSC directive 10/2 sanctioned "plausible deniability", interpreted by the CIA as approval to assassinate foreign leaders, overthrow governments and LIE to cover up accountability.
19 August 1953: The democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran,
Mohammed Mosaddeq, was overthrown in a coup organized by America's CIA
and Britain's MI6 in retribution for nationalising the country's
British owned oil industry in 1951. He was then tried and found guilty
of Treason. Iran has the world's 3rd largest oil reserves. The
country became ruled as a police state under the Shah until he was
overthrown in an Islamic Revolution in 1978/79, during which he fled
into exile. An Ayatollah became Supreme Ruler and Iran was transformed
from an Absolute Monarchy to an Islamic Republic with a theocratic
constitution. In the new millennium demonstrations paved the way for
elections in which the Mulla's rule was replaced in 2005 by
conservative President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, after winning 62 percent of the vote. He was replaced in elections held in June 2013 by moderate cleric, Hassan Rouhani.
22 November 1963: John F Kennedy, arguably the most popular President in the history of the U.S.A,
a strong proponent of equality and civil rights and a seeker of peace,
was gunned down in Dallas, Texas, shortly after declaring that U.S.
troops would be withdrawn from Vietnam. At the upcoming election for a
2nd term in office, Kennedy had decided to drop Vice President Lindon
B. Johnson, who was being investigated for his part in 4 criminal scandals.
2 August 1964: President
Lindon B. Johnson falsely reports that 2 US military vessels have been
attacked in the Gulf of Tonkin by Vietnamese communists. He responds by
sending U.S. troops into an all-out invasion of Vietnam.
4 April 1968: Martin Luther King Jr., a clergyman and Nobel Prize recipient for his efforts to end racial discrimination, was
assassinated in Memphis Tennessee. 31 years later, after dogged pursuit
by the King family, a wrongful death lawsuit trial took place in
Memphis that lasted 6 weeks. It delivered the verdict that "King was assassinated in a conspiracy that included agencies of the U.S. government".
6 June 1968: Robert Kennedy, brother of and Attorney General to John F Kennedy, was assassinated in Los Angeles after winning the California Democratic
Primary. Evidence surfaced subsequently to support the claim that the
assassin was acting under hypnosis whilst under the control of a
department of the CIA which specialised in such techniques.
11 September 1973: The
democratically elected president of Chile, Salvadore Allende, is
overthrown and dies in a military coup engineered by the CIA under
President Nixon and his Secretary of State Henry Kissenger. He was
replaced by dictator Augustus Pinochet, who's regime for the next 17
years repressed its own people, privatised education and facilitated
the U.S. corporate exploitation of its resources.
8 December 1980: British
musician and ex Beatle John Lennon, an outspoken critic of U.S.
military involvement in Vietnam and proponent of peace in the world,
was gunned down on the steps of his New York home by someone described
as a deranged fan. The 1989 book "Who Killed John Lennon" by Fenton
Bresler asserts that Mark David Chapman was a mind-controlled assassin programmed by the CIA to kill John Lennon.
In the well researched 1991 book
"The search for the Manchurian Candidate" John D Marks gives an in
depth analysis of the techniques of 'mind control' developed and
deployed by the CIA.
20 December 1989: The
U.S.A., under President George Bush senior, invaded Panama, a Central
American country with no army but which is guardian of an important
shipping route connecting the Pacific Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico. Tenders had been received for upgrading the
Panama Canal and a Japanese company had won and was about to be awarded
the contract. The official justification for the invasion was that
President Noriega was peddling drugs to the U.S.A. He was captured and
tried in Miami where he has served his sentence but remains in jail.
U.S. construction companies profited from the work of upgrading the
canal and an American military presence remains.
2 August 1990: Iraq under Saddam Hussein invaded and annexed the small
neighbouring oil producing nation Kuwait. Following worldwide
condemnation of the occupation, Iraq was given an ultimatum by the USA
under President George HW Bush - withdraw by 15 January or face attack.
17 January 1991: Aerial
bombardment commences as America, aided by Saudi Arabia, Britain and
Egypt launched Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm to retake
Kuwait and punish Iraq. The fleeing Iraqis set fire to more than 600
oil wells in a scorched earth policy.The forces quickly advanced into Iraq. The moral of the Iraqi military
was shattered and the regime of Saddam Hussein could easily have been
overthrown. With troops just hours away from Baghdad President Bush
called an end to the occupation. As Saddam reasserted his authority in
the months that followed, all the remaining anti-Saddam Iraqis who had
helped the Americans were systematically hunted down and killed.
26 February 1993: A
606kg urea nitrate-hydrogen bomb was brought by truck into the basement
car park of the World Trade Centre North Tower and detonated, causing a
massive explosion that killed 5 people. Egyptian Emad Salim Salim had
been recruited by the FBI to infiltrate the terrorist cell
planning this attack, supposedly to provide them with fake explosives
in a 'sting' operation. He became suspicious of the FBI intent and
began secretly recording the meetings he had with them. When the time
came the FBI provided him with real explosives to give the terrorists.
19 April 1995: The
Alfred P Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City was destroyed by bomb
blasts killing 168 people and injuring 680. A Ryder truck filled with
explosives, allegedly driven by Timothy McVei, was parked in front of
the building before being detonated. Strangely, a Ryder truck appears
in an aerial photo taken a few days earlier in an Army compound just
outside Oklahoma City. Timothy McVei could not have been acting alone
as other explosive devices were also found within the building.
As a direct result of this incident the U.S. government passed the 'Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996'.
12 November 1999: Glass–Steagall Act repealed,
removing the barrier between regular banking and speculative investment
banking, ushering in an age of financial risk taking. Subsequent
financial scandals and bank failures have eroded public confidence in
today's banking system.
1996 to 2000 saw a new security system installed at the World Trade Centre by the firm Securacom, headed from 1993 to 2000 by Marvin Bush, younger brother of George W.
7 November 2000 USA
Presidential Election fraud. Tens of thousands of mostly coloured
democratic voters in Florida were denied the right to vote in the state
where George W's brother Jeb was Governor. Democrats still narrowly won
but the recount was stopped and a partisan Supreme Court ruled in
favour of Bush, awarding him the 25 electoral seats for Florida which swung the overall election result in favour of Bush and the Republican Party..

24 July 2001 Larry
Silverstein, a Jewish American businessman from New York, obtained a 99
year lease on the loss making world trade centre complex, costing
$3.2bn. He received an insurance payout of $4.55bn in 2007. On the
morning of 9/11 he and his daughter broke their daily routine by not
breakfasting at the Windows on the World Restaurant on the 107th floor of the WTC North Tower.
3 September 2001 ZIM, an Israeli company, 49% owned by the Israeli Government, occupying 10,000 square feet of office space in the WTC North Tower, vacated its offices and prematurely broke it's lease, at a cost of $50,000.
6-10 September 2001 Insider Trading - according to a CBS News report on
the afternoon of 10th September, throughout those few trading days the
sale of put options (stock market bets on a stock price falling) was 90
times higher than normal on shares of United Airlines. During the
afternoon of 10 September, this
figure had increased to 285 times normal volume and was 60 times above
normal for put options on shares of American Airlines. The number of
put options sold for other airline companies remained at normal levels.
8+9 September 2001 (weekend) were 2 days of "power down"
at the WTC towers. Whilst a team laid miles of new cable inside the
buildings, all entrances remained open and cctv surveillance was
off. Wirt D Walker III, cousin of George W was head of Securacom,
the security company responsible for the security of these two
buildings from 2000 to 2003.
11 September 2001 was
day two of operation "Vigilant Guardian", a U.S. military exercise
conducted by NORAD (North American Aerospace Defence Command) which
envisioned passenger aircraft being hijacked by terrorists and used as
weapons to fly into buildings. This was just one of six such war games
in progress that day. The others were Vigilant Warrior, Northern
Vigilance, Northern Guardian, Global Guardian and a CIA/NRO (National
Reconnaissance Office) 'plane into building' simulation at NRO
headquarters, Virginia (4 miles from Dulles International Airport, where flight 77 originated).
All these exercises, overseen by Vice President and Defence
Preparedness Chief Dick Cheney that morning, ensured that war
planes normally stationed at locations near to New York and Washington
DC were nearly
all either over Alaska, Canada or 120 miles out to sea over the
Atlantic Ocean, thus conveniently incapable of responding to the real
events of the day. NRO staff, having been evacuated, were unavailable
to utilise the satellite tracking information normally available to
9/11/2001 on the day - as it happened
7.59am. AA flight 11 takes off from Boston. At 8.14am contact is lost. 8.40am NORAD informed of hijacking. 8.46am plane crashes into WTC (World Trade Centre) North Tower
8.09am. AA flight 77 takes off from Dulles. 8.51am contact lost. 9.37am explosion at Pentagon - media reports are that it was flight 77 crashing into the Pentagon that caused the explosion
8.14am. UAL flight 175 takes of from Boston. 8.42am contact lost. 9.03am plane crashes into WTC South Tower.
8.30am. Control of NMCC (Pentagon's National Military Control Centre) transferred to Captain Charles Leidig.8.42am. UAL flight 93 takes off from Dulles. 9.28am. contact lost. 10.03am plane reported to have crashed on waste ground in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
George W Bush is informed of the first crash whilst listening to
children read at a primary school but instructed by press secretary Ari
Fleischer "Don't say anything yet".9.59am. WTC South Tower collapses in its entirety following live media reports of several explosions.
10.28am. WTC North Tower collapses in its entirety4.54pm.(21.54GMT) BBC's
Jane Standley reports from New York that WTC Building 7 has also
collapsed, but it can be clearly seen still standing through the window
Building 7 collapses in classic controlled demolition fashion. Later
that day Larry Silverstein in a television interview stated that,
whilst speaking to firemen about the condition of building 7, "we made the decision to pull it. We then watched as the building collapsed".
In above frames from of
WTC Building 7 starting to collapse, note the vertical line of
explosions appearing from inside the building and the plume of white
smoke emanating from the roof.
7 October 2001 The U.S.A., with the support of Britain, launches bombing raids into Afghanistan using not only conventional bombs but cluster bombs and depleted uranium shells, which leave more than 10,000 innocent Afghan civilians dead and many more maimed.
Following 9/11 the Bush administration had demanded that Afghanistan's Taliban government hand over Osama bin Laden or face attack. The Taliban responded "Our
position is that if America has evidence and proof, they should produce
it. We are ready for the trial of Osama bin Laden in the light of the
26 October 2001 The USA Patriot Act (Uniting + Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept + Obstruct Terrorism)
was signed into law by President George W Bush. Closely resembling
Hitler's "Enabling Act", it condones torture, bugging, wire tapping,
computer hacking, detention without trial etc., effectively trashing the USA Constitution and the people's Bill of Rights.
11 April 2002 A
right wing coup took place in oil rich Venezuela, supported by the CIA.
Popular President Hugo Chavez had refused to let the U.S. oil
corporations continue to cream off the majority of the revenue from the
extraction of Venezuela's oil, instead spending it on improved housing,
health care and education for the poor, who were affronted by the coup
attempt and rose up to rescue and restore their President.He
remained the country's leader and despite concerns about his health, on
7th October 2012 he won a further 6 year term in office in an election
widely observed and reported as free and fair.
after a 2 year battle with cancer, he passed away on 5th March 2013.
His funeral was attended by millions and by world leaders from all
corners of the globe. He has been succeeded by Nicolas Madura following elections held in April 2013.19 March 2003 The U.S.A. invaded Iraq, with support from Britain and small token forces from Australia and Poland.
The stated aim, announced by the U.S.A.'s President Bush and Britain's Prime Minister Tony Blair was to "disarm Iraq of weapons of mass destruction (WMD's), to end Saddam Hussein's support for terrorism, and to free the Iraqi people".
We subsequently learned that Saddam Hussein did not, in fact, have any
WMD's and that after 10 years of sanctions and daily sorties (bombing
raids) in the north and south "no-fly zones", Iraq posed no military
threat to any nation. Whilst British forces secured Basra's oil fields,
the USA's capture of the capital Baghdad was shambolic, with numerous
incidents of "Friendly Fire", bombing of marketplaces, hospitals and a
hotel full of journalists, followed by a mass looting spree they were
unable to contain. Conditions prevailing in Iraq today are worse than they were under Saddam.
7 July 2003 Whilst
British forces carry out an exercise that pre supposes terrorist bombs
are planted in London's underground tube stations, that very scenario
unfolds for real - coincidence???. Whistle-blower Tony Farrel, a senior
police officer and intelligence research analyst, later revealed that
it was an inside job. He was fired as a consequence.2 November 2004 Another
USA Presidential Election fraud! After the illegal and hugely unpopular
invasion of Iraq, the American people were ready to expel George W Bush
from office. Half of the 6 million American voters living abroad did not receive their ballots or received them too late to vote. The tactics used to disenfranchise democratic voters in Florida in 2000 were expanded upon nationally, most notably in Ohio,
where the man in charge of the vote count, Ohio's secretary of state
Kenneth Blackwell, was the co chair of President Bush's re-election
committee. Over 350,000 were denied the right to vote in Ohio, resulting in Bush gaining 20 electoral seats in that state, which once again swung the result in his favour. There were inexplicable discrepancies between expertly conducted exit polls and actual vote counts in no less than 30 States, deviating to an extent that cannot be accounted for by their margin of error.
the final hours of his presidency, George W Bush granted no less than
140 presidential pardons - a flagrant abuse of Presidential powers.

Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and NY Federal Reserve Bank President Tim Geithner could have taken measures to help these institutions survive whilst having the culprits punished but instead forced bankruptcy upon them
causing a massive financial crisis, the consequences of which would be
felt around the world and inherited by the next administration, just a
few weeks away. 12 years later, no-one has been held accountable.
4 November 2008 Democrat Barack Obama elected the USA's 44th President. Turnout was high - 15.5% more votes were counted than in the previous election. Even
the widespread vote rigging apparatus was not sufficient on this
occasion to suppress popular opinion in the USA, though it did help to
disguise the massive gulf in popularity between the two parties. A pre
election straw poll conducted online worldwide by the weekly Economist
newspaper had Obama overwhelmingly ahead with more than 90% of the
popular vote but the official figures released brought this down to a

|Popular Vote|| 69,456,897|| 59,934,814|
|Percentage|| 52.9%|| 45.7%|
We, the citizens
of the world, already appreciated from the two books he had written,
that Barack Obama was a worldly intellectual with a well balanced sense
of values who knew how the system works and was better equipped than
most to transform it. Expectations were high, especially among foreign
leaders who had come to mistrust George W Bush.Almost
immediately, however, we could see that something was wrong when he
came to announce the appointments in his new administration, which
included Republican stalwarts for key financial positions - Tim Geitnher took over as U.S. Treasury Secretary from Henry Paulson, Larry Summers became the Director of the White House National Economic Council and Ben Bernanke continued as Chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve.
These were the very architects and beneficiaries of the financial crisis which had just crippled not only the US economy, but had serious repercussions in financial markets all around the world. The resulting "bailout" was the "heist of the century" -
the transfer of a staggering 7 trillion taxpayer dollars to the failing
banks - anyone with a head for arithmetic will see that with a US
population of approx. 350 million, this works out to US$20,000 per head
of population! This, of course, enabled the "banksters" to
continue awarding themselves multimillion dollar bonuses in reward for
their misdeeds. The root causes of this crisis have not been adequately
dealt with to this day, neither have there been any prosecutions and so
we may expect more of the same.28 June 2012 Britain's SFO (Serious Fraud Office) reveals another "bankster"
scandal. Major western banks have colluded to misrepresent LIBOR (the
London inter-bank offered rate) and EURIBOR (Euro interbank offered
rate), fraudulently profiting from massive derivative trades, betraying a culture of casual dishonesty which sets the stage for some serious litigation. Barclays
received a £290m fine from the FSA (Financial Securities Authority),
being the first bank to volunteer cooperation. CEO Bob Diamond first
resisted calls for his resignation then succumbed, demanding a £22m
payoff. At least 12 other banks worldwide, including
HSBC, RBS, Citibank, JP Morgan Chase, Lloyds Banking Group, Mitsubishi
UFJ Financial, Deutsche Bank, Credit Agricole, Societe General and
Credit Suisse, are being
investigated and are likely to have heftier fines imposed. This could
well set the stage for the next GLOBAL financial meltdown, likely to
coincde with the start of Obama's 2nd term in office.
19 August 2012 Australian
journalist, founder of WikiLeaks and forefront in the battle for
journalistic freedom, spoke to supporters gathered outside Ecuador's
London Embassy following Ecuador's offer of political asylum and
Britain's refusal to allow his safe passage. He has committed no crime
in the UK.
2010 he has been fighting an extradition order following a sexual
entrapment sting orchestrated in Sweden, with fears that this will lead
to his extradition to the USA. Since this address Sweden announced
that the allegations of rape are without grounds and have been dropped,
yet strangely, the extradition order remains.
- following a change of leadership in Ecuador, Julian's asylum rights
have been violated. He was dragged from the Ecuadorian Embassy by
British police and has since been languishing in Bellmarsh prison, for
the most flimsy of charges - flouting bail conditions, even though the
individual who put up and lost his bail continues to support Julian.
His only crime has been to inform the public of the misdeeds of our
governments, carried out in secret. For that the USA seek his
extradition. On the 3rd Septeber 2019 a crowd of several thousand
gathered in London to protest his continued imprisonment.
They were addressed by John Pilger, one of a dying breed of investigative journalists, and Roger Waters of Pink Flloyd.
