YouTubes obsession with countering 911 truthers is as crazy as the truther movement

How do you make everyone mad at once? Make fun of both the 9/11 truther movement and efforts to counter their movement. YouTube is at the forefront of both sides of the debate because of all the videos that have been made over the last decade and a half about the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

On one hand, you have plenty of truther videos pointing out discrepancies between the official account and the conspiracy theories surrounding that account. On the other hand, you have YouTube itself placing what can only be described as “fact check” additions to any video that may or may not be trying to spread a 9/11 conspiracy.

Sometimes, they take it too far.

The image below shows one of the ways YouTube tries to counter the truther movement. They attach an article from Encyclopedia Britannica that debunks claims of a conspiracy other than the terrorist conspiracy that’s part of the official account. The video I was watching had nothing to do the September 11 attacks. It was about Psalm 119, the longest chapter in the Bible and the inspiration behind one of my favorite ministries, 119 Ministries.

YouTube 911 Truth Misinformation

Why would YouTube put this fact check on this video? Then, it occurred to me.

To be clear, I definitely think the official story being told about 9/11 is so full of holes, it’s no wonder people believe “9/11 was an inside job.” Unfortunately, both sides of the debate have fallen short, in my opinion, of presenting clear evidence that their stance is correct. What happened and who made it happen will be debated for decades at least.

YouTube and others have tried to insert their own perspectives into their platforms in order to “protect” us against misinformation. This isn’t their job and makes their platforms more editorialized internally than they admit.

Sidney Gottlieb: CIA’s scapegoat and smokescreen

Sidney Gottlieb CIAs scapegoat and smokescreen

If you’ve followed conspiracy theories at all in your life, there’s a good chance you’ve come across the name Sidney Gottlieb. If it doesn’t ring a bell, perhaps you’ve heard of MKUltra. If that still isn’t jarring any memories, the latter was the CIA’s secret efforts to master mind control while the former was the man supposedly behind it all.

But if you get all of your information about this man and the operation he led from mainstream media, a book on the NY Times best-sellers list, or Wikipedia, you’re only getting a small part of the picture. Nevertheless, there’s a concerted effort to make the American public believe that it’s the whole picture… nothing else to see here. This is, of course, far from the truth. Everything we know about Gottlieb and Project: MKUltra is only known because they (the CIA and the U.S. government) allow us to have this information.

It’s in the rest of the story that we would get the real dangers in the program that likely had nothing to do with Gottlieb at all. In fact, the second component of the project is still redacted from documents and classified despite everything regarding the mind control element having been mostly released.

Think about that for a moment. A conspiracy by the Central Intelligence Agency to experiment on unwitting or unwilling people so they could master drug-induced mind control was deemed acceptable to release to the public, but whatever the 2nd component of their efforts were (or are) remains a mystery to this day. Whatever it is, we can assume it’s so heinous, so despicable, that even forced mind control experiments pale in comparison.

Gottlieb was more than a scapegoat. He was trotted out before the Senate to take as much blame as possible for the actions of the CIA. He was turned into a public spectacle and even today there are articles (and books) being written about him that present the narrative as if he’s the end-all to the story. But beyond being their scapegoat, he’s also the smokescreen. His story is outrageous, so much so that few are asking about the still-redacted aspects of the experiments.

The folks at Truthstream Media did a deep dive into this with their award-winning documentary, The Minds of Men. This shorter video about Gottlieb as a scapegoat is worth a watch as well.

We will not be covering the latest Brett Kavanaugh accusations

We will not be covering the latest Brett Kavanaugh accusations

Update: Now that the story has been debunked, we’re running one more story on the issue.

Original Story:

Brett Kavanaugh is in the news again as mainstream media tries to draw our attention away from real stories so we’re focused on old accusations made last year about events that supposedly took place three decades ago. We’re not taking the bait. Neither should you.

The border crisis is helping criminals enter (or reenter) the country while causing a tremendous economic strain on taxpayers.

Iran is trying to tank the world economy in desperate moves to force their oil onto the market.

Democratic candidates are pushing for gun confiscations while saying they don’t want gun confiscations.

The investigation of the investigators who forced the Russia hoax onto all of us for two years is coming to a conclusion. Finally.

Violence is rampant on the streets across America, especially in cities where Democrats are in charge.

Big tech is doing everything within its tremendous power to sway the 2020 election to favor Democrats while suppressing conservative ideas.

Climate change alarmists are scaring the people into thinking we’re all going to die if we don’t give all of the money and power to bureaucrats.

Despite all of these pressing issues that actually affect Americans, the media wants our attention pointed towards a Supreme Court Justice who has already been forced to defend himself time and time again against ancient allegations. No. This isn’t journalism. This isn’t what Americans need to be talking about. There are real problems and possibly even real solutions to those problems if we’re willing to stop the smearing by the media and focus on actual issues.

As a crowdfunded news outlet, our responsibility is to the people and the truth, not whatever distraction corporate media outlets cook up to keep people looking in the wrong direction.

The Democrats’ puppets in mainstream media are trying to be puppetmasters over the people. Silly controversies stirred up are merely distractions from the disastrous policy proposals Democrats are pitching. We won’t participate.

9/11 families praise Attorney General’s transparency regarding Saudi Role in 9/11 attacks

911 families praise Attorney Generals transparency regarding Saudi Role in 911 attacks

“This is a good result,” said Terry Strada, National Chair of the 9/11 Families and Survivors United for Justice Against Terrorism

Washington, D.C. – The 9/11 Families & Survivors United for Justice Against Terrorism, whose members are suing the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for its role in the September 11 Attacks, released the following statement after Attorney General Bill Barr refused to invoke “state secrets” to shield key evidence relating to the Saudi role. In particular, the Attorney General agreed to allow the court to see the name of the senior official who tasked two Saudi employees to give aid and support to the first-arriving hijackers.

“This is a good result,” said Terry Strada, National Chair of the 9/11 Families & Survivors United for Justice Against Terrorism. “The families are dedicated to getting to the truth, and we shouldn’t have to beg for this sort of basic information, or be kept in the dark, about the Saudi role in the attacks.”

“The Saudis are running out of rope,” said Don Migliori and Sean Carter, attorneys for the plaintiffs in the 9/11 litigation. “It was always clear that this information was not a ‘state secret’ and we’re pleased that the Attorney General agreed. We look forward to more disclosures in the weeks and months ahead.”

Don Migliori is a partner at Motley Rice LLC, and Sean Carter is a partner with Cozen O’Connor. They are co-chairs of the Plaintiff’s Executive Committee in the multi-district litigation against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia pending in federal district court in New York.

BACKGROUND:

Since 2003, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has faced a civil lawsuit in the Southern District of New York (03 MDL 1570) alleging that the Kingdom aided and abetted and provided material support for the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

After many years of legal wrangling regarding the scope of the law of sovereign immunity, Congress intervened decisively in September 2016 and passed the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA). JASTA made clear that foreign sovereigns cannot evade accountability in U.S. courts when they aid and abet or provide material support to international terrorism on U.S. soil, such as the September 11 Attacks. JASTA’s passage was endorsed by then-candidate Donald Trump’s campaign multiple times, with surrogates Reince Priebus and Rudy Giuliani, and Trump himself, favoring JASTA and the right of the 9/11 families to pursue their civil lawsuit against the Saudis.

In March of 2018, Judge George Daniels of the Southern District of New York rejected yet another attempt by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to dismiss the case. Judge Daniels then ordered discovery into the Saudi role in aiding and abetting the hijackers, including on matters relating to the activities of Saudi government officials Omar Ahmed al-Bayoumi and Fahad al-Thumairy. Attorneys for the 9/11 families and related parties have been collecting information from the Saudis, the U.S government, and other parties throughout the world. Much of that information remains under seal, but it is extensive and probative to the case.

One of the issues relating to Thumairy and Bayoumi was a heavily redacted 2012 FBI Summary Report, which indicated that the FBI was investigating both them and an unnamed third party who “tasked” them to help the hijackers upon arrival. The 9/11 plaintiffs have demanded that the name of that third individual be released, but it appears that some elements in the U.S. government though that the name should be shielded from the families as a “state secret.” The Attorney General had the personal obligation to determine whether the identity of the unnamed “tasking” official should be treated in that fashion.

The public policy of the United States favors full disclosure of all details relating to the Saudi support for al Qaeda and the 9/11 hijackers. Congress made this clear by passing JASTA has continued to emphasize the need for full disclosure.

For example, on September 26, 2018, the U.S. Senate once again spoke to the importance of full disclosure, unanimously passing S. Res. 610 calling on the Department of Justice to declassify necessary information because “the survivors, the families of the victims, and the people of the United States deserve answers about the events and circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks upon the United States.” That effort was led by Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and John Cornyn (R-TX).

Further, on March 8, 2019, a bipartisan group of U.S. Senators wrote to FBI Director Christopher Wray to urge him to give the highest attention to the 9/11 families’ request for information, emphasizing, that “Congress has made clear its view that American interests would best be served by a full and fair inquiry into these matters.” (See March 8, 2019 letter from Senators John Cornyn, Charles Schumer, Chuck Grassley, Richard Blumenthal, and Kirsten Gillibrand to FBI Director Christopher Wray.) The Senators made clear that the “FBI should not withhold relevant information from the [9/11] victims or their families in these cases for any reason.”

The families will continue to press their case in order to uncover the truth regarding the Saudi role in the 9/11 attacks. Today’s disclosure is helpful to that cause, but much more work must be done.
