Lawrence O’Donnell Ultimate Conspiracy Nut — One-percenter establishment pundit and Comcast employee Lawrence O’Donnell posited last night (April 7) that Russian President Vladimir Putin orchestrated the April 4 chemical weapon attack by Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad so President Trump could respond and look good.
Putin Body Count — Russian President Vladmir Putin is a pretty scary guy as we are constantly being reminded. Many of his opponents have died early and mysterious deaths. Business Insider has put together this troubling list of them.
Oh sorry. Wrong list. That was the Clinton Body Count.
Curt Weldon Speaks — This CBS interview with former Congressman Curt Weldon (R-Pa7) is must watching for those who need to understand the importance of keeping Hillary Clinton out of the White House.
Weldon was a 10-term congressman when he lost re-election in 2006 to Democrat Joe Sestak. What clinched Sestak’s victory was an FBI raid on the homes of Weldon’s daughter Karen and political ally Charlie Sexton three weeks before the election.
Weldon was in line to become chairman of House Armed Services Committee which would have given him almost unlimited subpoena power to investigate matters of national security. In his cross hairs was Clinton National Security Adviser Sandy Berger whose doing included the theft of National security documents from the National Archive along with arranging a retroactive presidential waiver for Democrat mega donor and Loral CEO Bernard Schwartz who had illegally transferred sensitive technology to China.
Weldon, in his interview, describes how it was Berger and the Clintons who arranged his take down.
In a totally unrelated matter, Wikileaks has found a email conversation between a couple of researchers at Stratfor, which is a Texas based global intelligence firm, discussing Mrs. Clinton’s involvement with the deaths of Vince Foster and Ron Brown.
Thank you Donald Trump for exposing the denizens of the swamp.
Europhysics News Trutherism — Trutherism, the belief that Al-Qaeda terrorists were not entirely behind the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, received a boost, Aug. 24, in the latest issue of Europhysics News which carries an article claiming that the World Trade Center was brought down by controlled demolition.
The authors of the piece are Steven Jones, a former full professor of physics at Brigham Young University; Robert Korol, a professor emeritus of civil engineering at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada; Anthony Szamboti, a mechanical design engineer; and Ted Walter, who holds master of public policy degree from the University of California, Berkeley.
The authors cite, among other things, the lack of heat to melt, or adequately weaken, the girders to cause the collapse.
Melted girders was widely reported as a reason immediately after the attack. This was quickly understood to be impossible, however. In fact, it was even being noted that things didn’t get hot enough to cause enough loss of structural strength.
This paper from the December 2001 issue of JOM, — the member journal of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society , — is in full agreement with the Jones group on this point. The authors Thomas W. Eagar and Christopher Musso, however, don’t feel the need to deny what was before everyone’s eyes. Their article points out that temperature along the 18-meter long joists was certainly not uniform and that given the thermal expansion of steel, a 300 F temperature difference from one location to another will produce yield-level residual stresses hence causing distortions resulting in buckling failures
Jones et al makes the point that fire never collapsed a skyscraper before 9/11 and has yet to bring one down since.
The rebuttal to this is that jet aircraft have never been flown into skyscrapers before or since. Further, a fire, while not collapsing a skyscraper, did make One Meridan Plaza in Philadelphia unstable enough to cause its demolition.
The Jones article discusses the collapse of the 47-story 7 World Trade Center with no deaths hours after the Twin Towers fell. The official version is that falling debris from the North Tower weakened its structure and caused fires while the Jones group says it had the hallmarks of a controlled demolition. We won’t address the engineering claims but we do find it puzzling that conspirators seeking to bring forth war and the New World Order would bother with bringing down 7 World Trade Center after collapsing the main towers.
Regarding the publication of the article by Europhysics News, a cynic might ascribe self promotion or politics. We take a more charitable view.
Not letting dissenters and skeptics air their claims only fans the flames of conspiracy theories. If proponents of global warming theory understood this, their claims — some of them anyway — might be treated with less skepticism by the general public.
Victor Thorn Penn State Summation Was Brilliant — We came across this article from June 22, 2012 that may be the best summation of events concerning the Sandusky scandal at Penn State and is well worth reading.
It appeared in American Free Press and the reporter who did such an exceptional job was Victor Thorn.
Thorn found connections with what happened in Happy Valley to the Franklin Scandal in Nebraska via former Penn State President Graham Spanier, who championed some rather twisted events at PSU apart from the hidden things.
He also puts on the record how promised revelations of a greater scandal involving Sandusky pimping boys to the very rich vanished without a peep.
He further explains how Joe Paterno was a scapegoat and far from the villain depicted by the establishment media.
Unlike Tom Corbett.
The article is especially poignant as Thorn died, Aug. 1, an official suicide. He had a book coming out critical of Clintons. Some are deeming his death suspicious and adding him to the Clinton Body Count.
For the record, his family and friends accept the official version and don’t think the Clintons had anything to do with it. Of course the Clintons wouldn’t have anything to do with the disappearance of Ray Gricar either but never mind that.
And also for the record, Thorn — real name Scott Robert Makufka — was a 9/11 truther and Holocaust denier. Dang, though, did he get Penn State right.
Finally for the record, we love life and are not suicidal.
Hillary Conspiracy Theories Swirl — The Clintons have long been a subject of conspiracy theories and new ones have started to swirl around Hillary.
And an old one has popped up its bullet-ridden head.
Conspiracy theories get footing when circumstances most would expect to be a subject of intense discussion and debate disappear from public discourse.
Let’s consider the old one i.e. The death of Vince Foster.
Foster was deputy White House counsel during the first six months of President Bill Clinton’s administration. He had worked with Hillary Clinton at the Rose Law Firm in Little Rock and was a friend and political ally of the Clintons in Arkansas.
On July 20, 1993 his body was found in Fort Marcy Park in Virginia just outside of Washington. He was reportedly in despair. The official reason was he blamed himself for a failed nomination.
The death was ruled a suicide after five investigations. One would think that would end the matter but certain things that one would have thought would be the subject of questioning headlines and curious editorials seemed to fall into a black hole. A bullet was never found. Photographs and film went missing. A signature on a suicide note appeared to have been forged. Witnesses said they were not called to testify or were not taken seriously when they did.
Have you heard of Rodriguez? Of course, not. His resignation was one of those things that went into the black hole. Move along, nothing to see. He said he talked with media outlets including the New York Times but nothing was ever aired or published.
The first person on the scene before the discovery of Foster’s body was Patrick Knowlton, who would testify before a grand jury. Knowlton noticed discrepancies that were never addressed by the investigation. Exposing what had happened became an obsession and persons with similar suspicions joined him prodding the matter with Freedom of Information Act requests and such.
Is it just the ramblings of a crank website taking the claims of a group of whackjobs too seriously? It would sure have been helpful if some of the self-proclaimed “serious” journalistic institutions gave the space to Rodriquez back in the day to either to make his case or hang himself.
Which gets us to today. John Ashe, who was president of the United Nations General Assembly in 2013-2014 was found dead in his Dobbs Ferry, N.Y home on June 22. We wrote about it here. Authorities initially ruled the cause a heart attack. When it was revealed he had a crushed larynx, however, they said it was a weightlifting accident and ruled it accidental.
Ashe had been charged with crimes related to taking bribes from Clinton acquaintance Chinese businessman Ng Lap Seng and was scheduled to meet with prosecutors regarding his upcoming trial.
Again, not many headlines regarding Ashe and the Clinton connections.
Finally, there is the July 10 murder of Sean Conrad Rich. Rich worked for the Democrat National Committee. According the conspiracy theorists he was responsible for the release of the DNC data to Wikileaks showing dirty tricks, and was about to give testimony regarding other dirty tricks. The theorists point out that the shooting happened in a safe neighborhood and nothing was taken from him.
OAN had a story about the Ashe and Rich deaths, that you can watch below.
John Ashe, a diplomat from Antigua and Barbuda who served as president of the United Nations General Assembly from September 2013 to September 2014, died, June 22, while working out at his home in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y.
He was 61. It’s kind of an under-reported story considering his international prominence and his obvious concern for physical fitness.
Well, officials say he was working out. What other possible explanation could there be, though, for having one’s larynx crushed by a barbell, which is how he died?
