TJ Radio goes international: Ian Henshall in UK, Tarpley in Tripoli – maybe Lamb too!

Truth Jihad Radio Wed. 1/29/11, 1-3 pm Central, American Freedom Radio (archived here.) Call-in number: (402) 237-2525 or post your questions to my Facebook page.

First hour: Live from London: U.K. 9/11 truth leader Ian Henshall, author of 9/11 Revealed: The New Evidence reporting on Richard Gage’s triumphant UK tour. From Ian’s newsletter:

9/11 Sceptic Richard Gage takes London and Bristol by Storm David Aaronovitch, 9/11 believer, Promises Debate. Some 250 people braved a chilly Monday evening to hear world renowned US architect Richard Gage demolish the US governments’ version of 9/11 at the main lecture room in the Royal Institute of British Architects this week. The Times’ David Aaronovitch, a leading media cheerleader for the official 9/11 story, was present and accepted a challenge to debate the issue in public.The meeting in Bristol the next day saw an even higher turnout. People were turned away from the standing room only meeting at Colston Hall.

In contrast to the corporate media outlets in London, the local media coverage of the Bristol event included a front page article in the Bristol Evening Post entitled ‘911:The Bombs Theory‘, a double page spread and a leading article entitled ‘In Praise of Richard Gage’ who is described as a ‘brave man’. Richard Gage did an interview on Radio Bristol on the Tuesday morning and other local radio stations all covered the event including Jack FM, Bristol Community Radio and Ujimma Radio. As a result of extensive leafleting of the Bristol University Engineering Department and a mailshot to every Architechtural and Engineering practice in the city there was a good turn out from the professional community….

Second hour: Webster Tarpley reports from Tripoli, Libya — offering a very different take on events in that country than the one we heard from Gordon Duff last week! (Note: We may also get a report from Franklin Lamb, also in Tripoli, whose take on events in Libya also differs markedly from Gordon’s!)

Dr. Robert Abele joins KB Show today

Tuesday, June 28th, 9 a.m Pacific on (archived here shortly after broadcast).

Guest, Dr. Robert Abele. Dr. Abele (Ph.D. Marquette University) teaches philosophy at Diablo Valley College in the San Francisco Bay Area. He is the author of two excellent recent articles The Corporate Media Complex: Drawing Back the Veil on the U.S. Propaganda Machine and The US as a National Security State. He is also the author of three books: A User’s Guide to the USA Patriot Act; Democracy Gone: A Chronicle of the Last Chapters of the Great American Democratic Experiment; and The Anatomy of a Deception: A Reconstruction and Analysis of the Decision to Invade Iraq.

Dr. Abele is a strong defender of academic freedom and the Constitution, as exemplified by the following commentary he did for KVMR radio in Sacramento (he now does them for KPFA in Berkeley).

The Extremist Attack on College Education

Last week I talked about the Republican attack on the public education system of America by the closing of all of the public schools of New Orleans and the firing of all its teachers. Today I would like to underscore another, more recent, attack. It centers on Dr. Kevin Barrett, a professor at the University of Wisconsin, who Republican senators and even the Republican governor of Wisconsin are attempting to fire. The reason: he has included in his course on Islam an examination of the evidence that the U.S. government was involved in the attacks of 9/11 to further their aims in the Mideast. This is absolutely a legitimate issue for a professor to raise, provided it fits in with the course content. Yet right-wing Republicans are so afraid of anyone who says anything that steps out of line from the official version of contemporary issues that they are willing to harass and even attempt to terminate professors who try to get their students to think about the evidence and problems with the evidence that are contained in contemporary issues with which they disagree. That is what education is all about; yet the right-wing is attempting to excise it from the system. I have already commented on David Horowitz and the attempts of his organization to have conservative viewpoints legislated as part of the laws of various states. The stories of Dr. Barrett in Wisconsin and the teachers of New Orleans are just the latest in this frontal assault on reducing education and critical thinking in America. Now consider this: Webster’s dictionary defines “fascism” as the forcible suppression of opposition, centralized control of money, and racism, among other things. From what we have seen in New Orleans and Wisconsin, fascists are at the doors of our educational institutions. Unfortunately for the Republican party, most of these fascistic voices come from their side of the aisle.

Since I prefer to examine the thoughts of the Founders as a touchstone of my criticisms of the right-wing of American politics, I will quote James Madison and Thomas Jefferson as being representative of the Founders’ nearly unanimous view on the function of education. James Madison said: “Learned Institutions ought to be favorite objects with every free people. They throw that light over the public mind which is the best security against crafty & dangerous encroachments on the public liberty…What spectacle can be more edifying or more seasonable, than that of Liberty & Learning, each leaning on the other for their mutual and surest support?” (Letter to William T. Barry, August 4, 1822).

Thomas Jefferson drafted a bill entitled “A Bill for the More General Diffusion of Knowledge,” which opened by stating bluntly that the only way to avoid nefarious individuals from perverting democracy into tyranny was education of the young. Most important, in Jefferson’s Report of the Commissioners for the University of Virginia (August 4, 1818), he stated explicitly that the main goals of college education should be “To enable him to calculate for himself, and to express and preserve his ideas…in writing…to develop the reasoning faculties of our youth, enlarge their minds, cultivate their morals, and instill into them the precepts of virtue and order…and, generally, to form them to habits of reflection and correct action…” If Republicans and religions do not want college professors to examine unpopular ideas, how are these mandates Jefferson sets for colleges to be met?

Continuing on, Thomas Jefferson said it best: “If anybody thinks that kings, nobles, or priests are good conservators of the public happiness, send them [to an American college]. It is the best school in the universe to cure them of that folly.” Even more, Jefferson said that where people replace education with what he calls an “adoration” of wealth or nobility, that country is ripe for despotism (Letter to George Wythe, August 13, 1786). If Jefferson’s admonition is true at all—and I think it is—then the Republicans who attack college-course content today are engaging in folly.

Notice the repeated emphasis of Madison, Jefferson, and the other Founders regarding two themes: the emphasis on thinking, and the connection between thinking and remaining free. As Madison put it, you have to have liberty and learning together in order to have a healthy democracy. Yet this is the very thing the right-wing in today’s political climate is attempting to sever. The question is why. The attackers all seem to think that they have the best idea as to what should or really should NOT be taught. But Madison’s and Jefferson’s ideas were good then, and they remain good ideas today. Good public schools result in a healthy democracy, and without healthy schools, democratic government is open to a take-over by despots. Such is our situation today.

So right-wing, Republican attacks on education today can only be for that most egregious of all vices according to our Founders: that is, raw political power, one of the most faction-causing vices in open government, according to Madison and other Founders. Their aim can only be to divide the country and thereby conquer it for themselves.

But we have seen that the attack of the government, both state and federal, on the public schools of New Orleans and the attack of certain legislators on the content of what university professors teach are both attacks on the backbone of a healthy democratic nation. We have seen this in the words of our Founders. In my estimation, education is the final barrier that stands between freedom in the Founders’ understanding and the despotism of a corporate and religiously-controlled culture. We need to support our schools in any way we can from such intrusion, and this starts with keeping an eye on our local schools and colleges to see if the fascists are at their doors yet. Our schools are democracy’s last hopes in America; let’s keep them free from fascist influence.

Jim Fetzer, Stephen Lendman on TJ Radio Monday

Truth Jihad Radio Mon. 1/27/11, 1-3 pm Central, American Freedom Radio (archived here.) Call-in number: (402) 237-2525 or post your questions to my Facebook page.

First hour: Jim Fetzer explains his latest article “9/11: Seismic Proof + Video Fakery = An Inside Job.” I don’t understand the relationship between the seismic proof (Ross and Furlong’s study showing that the first explosion in the North Tower happened 14-17 seconds before the plane impacts) and the video fakery issue. But apparently Jim does…

Note: Dr. James Fetzer will be speaking on July 20 at the University of Minnesota-Duluth campus in Bohannon Hall Room 90 starting at 7 pm, with doors opening at 6 pm. That hall seats 350 people. Jim’s talk is titled: “Were the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq justified by the events of 9/11/01?”

Second hour: Stephen Lendman on Turkish-Israeli relations, Permanent US Iraq and Afghanistan Occupations Planned, Breaching Gaza’s Siege, and much more. Along with discussing the new boats to Gaza and the permanent occupations, we’ll compare notes on Turkey, where I spent two weeks in mid-May.

Victor Thorn, Abu Salem Sofyan on TJ Radio today!

Truth Jihad Radio Mon. 1/24/11, 1-3 pm Central, American Freedom Radio (archived here.) Call-in number: (402) 237-2525 or post your questions to my Facebook page.

First hour: Host Peymon Mottahedeh interviews controversial truth- seeker and patriot movement author-broadcaster Victor Thorn of WingTV, author of 9/11 on Trial, a 2005 courtroom-style brief for controlled demolition, and 9/11 Evil — one of the few books to focus on the Israeli/Mossad connection to 9/11…as well as other books on Obama, the USS Liberty, and anarchism. Not to mention the terrific 9/11 truth insert he designed for Poker Face’s Peace or War CD.

Second hour: Kevin Barrett interviews Abu Salem Sofyan of Islamic Intelligence, co-author with Captain Eric May of False-Flag Forecast Summer 2011. Is another big false-flag attack likely as we approach the 10th anniversary of 9/11? If so, what to expect, and how to help prevent it?

Islamic Intelligence is one of the best Muslim alternative-news sites, so I’m happy to finally have a chance to actually talk to Abu Salem!

Osama for President!

He’s tall. He’s dark. He’s handsome. And, unfortunately, he’s dead. Can Osama’s sterling character and nonpareil charisma overcome his handicap? Can a truth-telling dead man be elected President of the United States? In this essay, political strategist Kevin Barrett of answers with a resounding “yes”!

Broadcast Thursday, June 23rd (listen here): National Security insider and Veterans Today editor Gordon Duff deconstructs “Popeye history” and says Osama Bin Laden was not only innocent, but actually a good man who cared about ordinary Americans and whose real enemies were the Zionists and corrupt insiders who did 9/11.

Based on Gordon Duff”s ringing endorsement of Osama Bin Laden, which supports conclusions I have drawn from my own research, I am launching a movement to ask the Democratic party to draft Osama, rather than Obama, as its presidential candidate in the 2012 elections.

Campaign slogan: “Change the B to an S, and you’ll hear a lot less BS!”

There are many reasons why Osama would be a better president than Obama. The most important is that Osama is known to be “truthful to a fault,” as his former colleague in the US-sponsored Afghan liberation war, Pakistani Intelligence Chief Gen. Hamid Gul, put it. Gordon Duff, a National Security insider who has worked with Gen. Gul, echoes that assessment, saying that Bin Laden’s “only crime” was that he “told the truth.” Considering that every US president since Jimmy Carter has been a pathological liar, it would be refreshing and inspiring to finally elect a new president who is “truthful to a fault.”

Naysayers will surely object that of course Bin Laden won’t lie to us, because he’s dead! How can we elect a dead man president? My response is that such bigotry against dead people is unacceptable. In 1960, Americans overcame anti-Catholic bigotry by electing John F. Kennedy; in 1980 they overcame bigotry against people with Alzheimer’s by electing Ronald Reagan; in 2000 and 2004 they almost overcame bigotry against the retarded by nearly electing George W. Bush; and of course in 2008 they overcame bigotry against Irish-American bisexuals who were born in Kenya by electing Obama. Additionally, there is a precedent for sending a corpse to Washington: Missouri voters greatly preferred the corpse of Mel Carnahan to the living John Ashcroft in 2000. Given this track record, there is no reason why we could not elect a dead man President in 2012.

But could a dead man, even one as dynamic as Osama Bin Laden, really execute the offices of President of the United States? Admittedly, most dead people could not handle the stress of the office of Chief Executive. But Osama Bin Laden is not your ordinary dead man. Since he passed away in December, 2001, Osama has compiled a long list of accomplishments:

* He has conducted more than a dozen TV and audio interviews, skillfully impersonating widely disparate characters ranging from a big fat gray-beard with a broad nose, to a short, skinny little shrimp with a jet-black beard.

* He has used his amazing charisma, which would be unusual even in a living person, to inspire Americans to continue their war-on-terror crusade.

* He has skillfully evaded detection, hopping from cave to cave attached to his solar-operated dialysis machine and finally winding up in a big house right next door to Pakistani military headquarters.

* He even put up an amazing fight against the American death squad that came to re-kill him, somehow managing to unleash a stream of machine gun fire against the death squad even though he was unarmed, and somehow using his wife as a human shield even though he did not use his wife as a human shield. Terrified by his superhuman ability to defy Aristotelian logic and elementary reality, the American troops were forced to hurriedly throw his body in the ocean, just in case he came back to life again, or somebody asked to independently verify his identity.

Some people will argue that because Bin Laden was born in Saudi Arabia, and is/was not a US citizen, he is ineligible to be elected President of the United States. To such people, I respond that if Obama can release a blatantly photoshopped “birth certificate,” then this Constitutional requirement is clearly no longer in force. Additionally, Bin Laden is eligible for posthumous honorary US citizenship based on his lifetime of service to the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. As Gordon Duff writes: “Sources willing to testify in court, sources silenced because of phony concerns for ‘national security,’ sources who have held positions of trust and/or authority, tell me Osama bin Laden always worked for the CIA until his death. Most confirm his death in December, 2001.”

But wait a minute! Didn’t Bin Laden “hate America”? How could we elect an America-hater as President?

In reality, as Gordon Duff explains, Osama loved America and Americans, but hated some of the policies of their government…the same policies that are now hated by more and more of the American people. As Duff writes, Osama “believed that a powerful Israeli lobby controlled much of the US government and that the American people would suffer terribly because of this…”

But didn’t Bin Laden do 9/11? Hardly! He repeatedly denied involvement in 9/11 and deplored the killing of innocent people, including women and children. As a CIA intercept shows, Bin Laden said: “Whoever committed the act of 11 September are not the friends of the American people. I have already said that we are against the American system, not against its people, whereas in these attacks, the common American people have been killed.”

And though he worked for the CIA, Bin Laden was apparently honest enough to smell corruption in his own agency. When speculating on who might have helped pulled off 9/11, Bin Laden said (according to the CIA):

“Then there are intelligence agencies in the US, which require billions of dollars worth of funds from the Congress and the government every year. This [funding issue] was not a big problem till the existence of the former Soviet Union but after that the budget of these (FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY 180) agencies has been in danger. They needed an enemy. So, they first started propaganda against Usama and Taliban and then this incident happened.”

In short, Osama Bin Laden told the American people the truth about the fact that their nation has been taken over by an unholy alliance of Zionists more loyal to Israel than America, and corrupt elements of their own military-industrial-intelligence complex. This unholy alliance staged the 9/11 attacks as a pretext to seize power, plunder the American taxpayers, and terrorize any potential opposition by setting up a police state apparatus. (The step-by-step instructions for the 9/11 stealth coup d’état are outlined in Luttwak’s Coup d’Etat: A Practical Handbook.)

If the dead (fake) Osama could inspire Americans to relinquish their economy, their liberty, their Constitution, and their nation’s good name, perhaps the dead (real) Osama can inspire them to take these things back.

Osama Bin Laden for President!

The Architecture of Intimidation, Pt. 1: Detained at O’Hare

The Architecture of Intimidation, Pt. 1: Detained at O’Hare

by Kevin Barrett,

It seems I am back on the slow-fly list.

Returning on Friday from my speaking tour of Belgium and Germany, I was detained by the US Immigration and Naturalization* (sic) Service for roughly two hours. My colleague Dr. Suleyman Kurter and I had our passports confiscated as we attempted to clear Customs at the O’Hare Airport checkpoint. We were forced to remain seated, under observation, without the right to make a phone call or even to use any electronic devices such as telephone or laptop. So we were unable to notify the person who was picking us up that we had been detained. When we asked our captors why we were being held, they told us that they didn’t know.

After about ninety minutes of false imprisonment under nonexistent pretext, we were summoned separately to submit to interrogations: What is your profession? Where do you work? How did you get that job? What were you doing in Europe? Where did you go? Who did you see? And so on.

There are basically two ways to deal with this situation. One is to say “Fuck you, this is the United States of America and I’m an American citizen who hasn’t done anything wrong, so either charge me with a crime or let me go and kiss my ass.” One drawback of this strategy, of course, is that the agents would undoubtedly decide to prove that they did indeed have the right to detain us as long as they wanted, and we’d probably end up sitting there till doomsday. The other strategy, the one I opted for, was to use the occasion as a teachable moment.

I told the interrogators that my profession is “currently unemployed college professor and 9/11 truth activist.” They wanted to hear the details, so I obliged. They grew fascinated by my story, which probably is more interesting than what they usually get to hear in the course of their duties. When I got to the part about how I discovered the clear and obvious evidence that 9/11 was an inside job, and faced the choice about whether or not to try to do something about it, they asked what evidence I thought was strongest. I told them about Building 7. One of the agents said he had heard that the owner of the World Trade Center was under suspicion. I gave them the rundown on Larry Silverstein, including his alleged mob connections, his close friendship with Netanyahu, his bizarre decision to buy the WTC just months before 9/11 when it was facing a ten-billion-dollar asbestos-removal court order, his doubling of the WTC terrorism insurance and changing it to cash-payout, his collection of five billion dollars from insurance companies and demands for over ten billion more, his apparent confession to demolishing WTC-7, and the fact that he and his family members always had breakfast at Windows to the World at the top of the North Tower except on 9/11, when Larry suddenly was reminded to visit his dermatologist…Meanwhile, I said, my friend William Rodriguez, the famous 9/11 hero and whistleblower, lost all his friends in Windows to the World that day.

The conversation somehow became exceedingly cordial, and I began to suspect that these guys were 9/11 truthers disguised as Customs agents! I ended up giving them DVDs of Blueprint for Truth and Sifting and Winnowing: Kevin Barrett at U.W.-Madison (the student-made documentary about my academic freedom struggle) and accepting their obviously sincere apologies. These guys, after all, were only doing their job. It was the higher-ups in DHS who had fingered us because we had been in Europe on a truth-speaking tour…and because we were Muslims. So much for freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

As we left O’Hare, I remembered a similar experience on the first leg of our journey. As we were going through security at O’Hare en route to Brussels, I told the DHS cops – as I always do – that I am morally allergic to carcinogenic naked body scanners, so go ahead and give me an enhanced patdown…but please get it over with quickly, because I am exceedingly ticklish, and I would hate to start rolling on the floor screaming in hysterical laughter during such a serious national security experience. But before I could get halfway through my rap, the DHS interrupted me with, “Sssshhh, don’t tell anybody, the machines are out of order, just walk over there with the others.” And lo and behold, he was right — people were walking around, rather than through, the infernal machines!

Based on those two experiences at O’Hare, I think we are seeing a covert rebellion by ordinary low-level DHS and Customs agents, who are (understandably) tired putting up with the BS foisted on them by their superiors. The whole effort to turn airports into prison-like labyrinths of intimidation à la Piranesi, with multiple checkpoints, naked body scanners, mandatory partial disrobing (shoes and belts off — oops, there go my pants!), and PA systems blaring that the threat level has just been raised to orange may be finally wearing out its welcome.

 * * *

* The name suggests that immigrants can become “naturalized” citizens US. This is a very strange word to use in this context. What in the world is “natural” about this process or its result? Political borders themselves are entirely unnatural, as I learned at age four by crossing the border from Wisconsin into Iowa and discovering that there was no black line across the road and that even if Wisconsin was mostly green, Iowa was not as pink as the map would have you believe. And the idea that when people become US citizens they are “naturalized” — it’s almost as idiotic as believing that everything in Iowa is pink because the map says so! In reality, when people come to the land of the freeway and the home of the Braves, Indians, Redskins, and other athletic teams condescendingly named after genocide victims — the land of squalid shopping malls, paved earth and almost-identical mcmansions sprawling across what once were fruited plains — it would be more accurate to say they are becoming unnaturalized. That is, they are joining a culture that fears and loathes nature, including human nature, to the point that corpses are preserved semi-eternally in pancake makeup and formaldehyde, and the official national biological formation is the uniformly-trimmed lawn.

Kevin returns from Europe: This week’s conversations include James Petras, Robert Merritt, Gordon Duff, D.W. Aossey, Mohamed Alouine & Helen Caldicott

Hot on the heels of my Turkish and European tours (more info on those at my blog) I’ve got some great guests lined up this week! Thank you to co-host Peymon Mottahedeh, who will handle the first hour on Fridays from now on, and guest hosts Ken Freeland and Robin Hordon for their great shows last week Monday and Wednesday.

Truth Jihad Radio Mon. 6/20/11, 1-3 pm Central, American Freedom Radio (archived here.) Call-in number: (402) 237-2525 or post your questions to my Facebook page.

First hour: James Petras, author of many critically important books and essays. His recent essay Empire or Republic: from Joplin, Missouri to Kabul, Afghanistan shows how ordinary Americans, like Afghanis and Iraqis, are victims of the treasonous architects of an unconstitutional empire. James Petras is one of the very few leftist American academics willing to address the Zionist takeover of the USA head-on. He is the author of more than 62 books published in 29 languages, and over 600 articles in professional journals.

Second hour: Robert “Butch” Merritt, former police and FBI confidential informant, author of Watergate Exposed: How the President of the United States and the Watergate Burglars Were Set Up. The book recounts how Merritt, while working as an informant for the Washington, DC police, uncovered the Watergate burglary plot two weeks in advance, and reported it to his handler: Military Intelligence agent (using his DC police job as cover) Carl Shoffler. Shoffler went on to set up and arrest the Watergate burglars, helping bring down Nixon on behalf of America’s military-intelligence secret government. Merritt’s first-hand testimony is credible, backed up by documentary evidence, and consistent with other revisionist Watergate historiography including Russ Baker’s Family of Secrets, Colodny and Gettlin’s Silent Coup, and Hougan’s Secret Agenda. (Read about my interview with Russ Baker here, and listen here (second half of mp3 file).

Thursday, June 23rd, 9 a.m Pacific on (postponed due to technical difficulties at NoLiesRadio): National Security insider and Veterans Today editor Gordon Duff deconstructs “Popeye history” and says Osama Bin Laden was not only innocent, but actually a good man who cared about ordinary Americans and whose real enemies were the Zionists who did 9/11. Gordon’s searing OBL piece recalls my 2007 interview on Jessica McBride’s show. McBride, the airhead wife of a DA running for Wisconsin Attorney General, was sent by the Republican high command to set me up as “Wisconsin’s Ward Churchill” for the benefit of State Rep. Steve Nass who would, the next morning, catapult me to national notoriety, thereby (they hoped) scaring academics away from 9/11 truth. Late in the show, an audibly frustrated McBride loses it, practically shrieking: “Is Osama Bin Laden evil? Is he evil? Answer the question yes or no! IS HE EVIL!?!?!” My response: “Jessica, it feels like I’m talking to a two-year-old.” National Security insider Gordon Duff, who knows Afghanistan and Pakistan very well, might have answered that question more directly: “No, Jessica, it’s you and the people who sent you who are evil. Osama was a good guy.”

Wednesday June 22nd, 1-3 pm Central, American Freedom Radio (archived here):

First hour: D.W. Aossey, author of the fictional (?) thriller Instruments of State: “The Cold War is a fading memory and a New World Order looms. As the Millennium approaches, a gang of powerbrokers scheme to control the world’s resources. But first they need to convince the American people — the paymasters of the lone remaining military superpower — that their security is at risk…Framed in historical events from Vietnam to the 1983 Invasion of Lebanon to the Gulf War and culminating in the events of 9/11, it’s a winner-take-all proposition, and murder and mayhem make for a surprise ending in this epic tale of espionage and suspense.”

Second hour: Moroccan pro-democracy leader
Mohamed Aliouine. Will the Arab Revolutions topple the last three big US/Zionist-puppet royal dynasties: Morocco, Jordan, and the big prize, Saudi Arabia? Exiled Moroccan pro-democracy activist Mohamed Aliouine has been living on the run across the USA and has survived multiple assassination attempts, as he helps organize the ever-bigger demonstrations that threaten to topple one of the world’s longest-lived feudal monarchies…whose party-hearty homosexual billionaire king Mohammed VIth sells his nation out to the Zio-American bankster empire while posing, more mincingly than convincingly, as “Commander of the Faithful.” Amir al-Mumineen my Irish Muslim Ass! The next time you go jet-skiing with your boyfriends, Mohammed VIth, please continue all the way to the Bahamas…and stay there.

Friday, June 24th: My radio show guests TBA (Peymon handles the first hour.) Then from 10 to 11 pm I’ll join legendary anti-nuke activist Helen Caldicott recording an episode of Melodee’s Truth Quest show at KHEN for broadcast the following week.

My 9/11 truth interview (in French) on Belgian university radio

I just did a lively interview, en français, with Frédéric of Campus Radio Bruxelles.

Listen here.

I’m not sure how long they’ll be archiving it, so listen quickly!

Also, just a reminder about tonight’s talk (more details at

Conférence du Prof. Kevin Barrett à Bruxelles : Me 15 juin à 20h
au Cercle littéraire Victor Hugo
106 Av Stalingrad. 1000 Bruxelles
(près de la Gare du Midi)
« Comment se réconcilier avec les médias et les politiciens qui nous ont menti pendant 10 ans à propos du 11 septembre 2001 »
Les portes ouvrent à 19h30

9/11 truth talk in Rotterdam, Cologne & Brussels

Details on my talk in Brussels this Wednesday, June 15th are now posted at . The title translates as something like: “How can we reconcile with the media and politicians who have lied to us about 9/11 for the past ten years?” I guess one way would be to reconcile with them while they twist slowly in the breeze. For the long version, come to the talk!  I haven’t done a talk in French since speaking to the Nibraz Institute in French and Arabic back in 2008, so be ready for some unintentional humor ; – )

So far the highlights of my tour have included an informal discussion with staff at the Islamic University of Rotterdam, and a talk to around 1,000 attendees as the Yeni Asya annual convention in Cologne.

The president of the Islamic University of Rotterdam, Dr. Ahmed Akgunduz, is a truth-speaker in his own right. Dr. Akgunduz told us about meeting with Bush I National Security Advisor Sandy Berger, along with some high government officials from the Netherlands, after 9/11. Dr. Akgunduz told Berger that the Bush Jr. administration was insane. The Dutch officials, before they left, told Dr. Akgunduz he could expect the university to lose its accreditation. But the next day Berger praised Dr. Akgunduz for his frankness and sincerity, and the Dutch government relented. (I hope to let Dr. Akgunduz speak for himself on a future radio show…)

Then yesterday in Cologne, I was a featured speaker, along with my colleague Dr. Suleyman Kurter, Professor Emeritus of Political Science, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, at the Yeni Asya convention. Yeni Asya is the bravest and most politically active of the groups carrying on the work of the great Turkish Islamic reformer Bediuzzaman Said Nursi. I told the group that the methods Bediuzzaman used to save Islam in Turkey — nonviolence combined with uncompromising, eloquent truth-speaking and organizing — should be employed today to resist the current Zionist-instigated war on Islam. I explained that all over the world, the enemies of Islam are staging acts of false-flag terror designed to be attributed to “radical Muslims.” 9/11 was simply the biggest and most obvious of these deceptions; others have included the pre-empted Ergenekon plot a.k.a. the Turkish 9/11; the Russian intelligence services’ bombing of an apartment complex to launch Russia’s invasion of Chechnya; Mubarak’s bombing of Coptic churches in Alexandria, which were blamed on the usual “radical Muslim” suspects until documents were found proving Mubarak’s goons did it; CIA and DEA agent David Headley’s attack on Mumbai, and other proven false-flag events in India; CIA agent Raymond “Bin Laden’s handler” Davis’s “Pakistani Taliban” bombings of mosques and markets in Pakistan; and so on.

The talk in Cologne was extremely well-received. Wednesday in Brussels, I intend to challenge the media to inform the public about the ubiquity of false-flag terror, the most powerful weapon in the arsenal of governments seeking to control and oppress their own citizens.

Small-scale false-flag terror probably happens all the time. When the Governor of Wisconsin admits to contemplating a false-flag terror attack, and one of his Republican colleagues specifically urges him to stage a false-flag attack with firearms, the Wisconsin and American national media should be all over the story.  Yet I’m sure that only a small minority of Wisconsin residents has heard about this. The media is allergic to informing the public about false-flag events, no matter how well-documented they may be.

The media’s unwillingness to report on potential false-flag terror stories is what allowed top Bush Administration operatives and their allies to get away with blowing up the three World Trade Center skyscrapers and staging what amounted to a Zionist coup d’état in the USA. This leaves those of us in the GAM (genuinely alternative media) with a lot of work to do. If we don’t push the topic of false-flag terror to the highest levels of national and international concern, even worse events may be expected.

Was that Bush’s bus heading for the Hague? My European tour turns weirde from the outset

Back when I was young and weird — before I became a nice, normal radical Muslim conspiracy theorist — I wrote Dr. Weirde’s Weirde Tour Guide to San Francisco, the book that paid for the first couple of years of my Ph.D. program. (You can tell it’s a cult classic because “like new” copies are selling for a lot of money.)

My tour of Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany started off like something out of my own weirde tour guidebook. The first place my hosts took me to see was Brussels’ biggest tourist attraction, the mannekin pis — a statue of a child urinating. For some reason the tourists really love this, and the locals have obliged by making it the unofficial mascot of Brussels. To my Muslim hosts, of course, the cult of the mannekin-pis is classic illustration of Western decadence. I can’t say I disagree. Worshiping statues is bad enough — that was precisely the sin of the pre-Islamic idolators — but flocking to pay obeisance to a stone child squirting water from his male organ is WEIRDE with an e.

The next stop on our weirde tour was the atomium, a gigantic sculpture representing the unit cell of an iron crystal magnified 165 billion times. Kind of cool, but utterly pointless. A much better idea would be to build a gigantic sculpture of a nanothermite molecule multiplied 165 million times…right on Ground Zero. That’s almost as good an idea as my “build the world’s biggest mosque on Ground Zero, complete with two 110-story minarets, as an apology to Muslims for falsely blaming them for 9/11” proposal that Obama rejected and Mike Pintek and Matt Taibbi  really hated.

What if this were a gigantic sculpture of a nanothermite molecule on Ground Zero?

After spending the day in Brussels and the night in Ghent, we passed through Rotterdam en route to the Hague, and passed a very weirde bus on the freeway. It looked like this:

I assumed that Interpol had finally captured George W. Bush and was transporting him, on this aptly-named bus, to the International Criminal Court. My hosts informed me that, unfortunately, this was just the odd appellation of a German bus line that is apparently named after its oddly-appellated owner.

Okay, enough weirdness! Tomorrow I promise to get serious and tell you about the 9/11-truth-related stuff I’ve been doing, including today’s talk to roughly 1000 very receptive people at the Yeni Asya convention in Cologne.
