False flag paradigm shift: X Files, Dan Brown expose 9/11 truth!

Popular culture is catching up with the truth movement


Is there a false-flag paradigm shift underway?

That is my contention in the new book ANOTHER French False Flag? Bloody Tracks from Paris to San Bernardino, which features my chapter “False Flag Paradigm Shift.”

Reader Dick K. from Michigan writes:

Your  chapter in “Another” pg. 285   Paradigm Shift  is outstanding.  I am copying and high-lighting for local distribution.

What do I mean by a “paradigm shift”? Borrowing from Thomas Kuhn, I’m suggesting that an accumulation of evidence since 9/11/2001 has set the stage for a sudden flipping of public perceptions—from the old paradigm, in which “terrorist attacks” and war-trigger events peddled by governments and lapdog media were accepted at face value, to a new paradigm in which they are greeted with a chorus of skepticism.

On September 11th, 2001, only a minuscule fraction of Americans knew what a false flag was. Today, the meme has spread. When a “mass shooting” or “terrorist attack” happens, such as recent events in Paris and San Bernardino, millions of people immediately suspect “false flag.”

This growing public awareness is reflected in popular culture. The new X Files on Fox features an alternative media character named Tad O’Malley who:

eventually sways Mulder and Scully to adopt a new conspiracy (theory) … that lays a framework for the six-episode revival…The most eyebrow-raising moment in the premiere is when O’Malley brings the 9/11 terrorist attacks into his conspiracy framework. ‘9/11 was a false flag operation,’ O’Malley declares on his Truth Squad with Tad O’Malley show…” (source: EW.com)

The notion that consensus reality is created by an endless series of false-flag deceptions also shows up in Dan Brown’s most recent novel, Inferno (2013). And Brown isn’t framing it as fiction—he says outright that this is reality. (WARNING: If you’re planning to read the book and don’t want any giveaways, you may wish to stop reading this article.)

Inferno begins with this preface:


All artwork, literature, science, and historical references in this novel are real.

“The Consortium” is a private organization with offices in seven countries. Its name has been changed for considerations of security and privacy.

Inferno is the underworld as described in Dante Alighierii’s epic poem The Divine Comedy, which portrays hell as an elaborately structured realm populated by entities known as “shades”—bodiless souls trapped between life and death.

Once you’ve read the novel, the above-cited preface bears re-reading. In it, we find—sandwiched between two verifiably true factual statements—a reference to an actual company referenced in the novel under the name “The Consortium.” Brown is clearly telling us that this company really exists.


Now get a load of what that company does!

It manufactures false flags and other big lies.

“Individuals targeted by the Consortium seldom realized the truth behind the staged events they had witnessed…” (368)

The Consortium’s CEO:

dealt solely with large-scale deception, plying his trade for those who could afford to pay millions of dollars in order to receive the best service.


Major corporations.

The occasional ultrawealthy VIP.

To achieve their goals, these clients would have at their disposal all of the Consortium’s assets, personnel, experience, and creativity. Above all, though, they were given deniability—the assurance that whatever illusion was fabricated in support of their deception could never be traced to them.

Whether trying to prop up a stock market, justify a war, win an election, or lure a terrorist out of hiding, the world’s power brokers relied on massive disinformation schemes to help shape public perception.

It had always been that way.” (386)

The CEO, known as “the provost,” admits to himself: “I lie for a living. I am a purveyor of disinformation.” (385)

The Consortium—like whoever orchestrated certain recent false flags—specializes in fake mayhem:

“People were trying to kill me!” Langdon shouted…”I saw the hospital’s doctor—Dr. Marconi—gunned down in cold blood!”

“That’s what you saw, the provost said evenly, “but that’s not what happened. Vayentha (the “terrorist”) worked for me. She had a superb skill set for this kind of work.”

“Killing people?” Langdon demanded.

“No,” the provost said calmly. “Pretending to kill people.” . . .

“Vayentha’s gun was loaded with blanks,” the provost said. “It triggered a radio-controlled squib that detonated a blood pack on Dr. Marconi’s chest. He is fine, by the way….you saw what we wanted you to see—hospital props, a few actors, and a choreographed attack scene….That is what my company does…we’re very good at creating illusions.” (366)

So let me get this straight. Dan Brown is telling us that a “consortium” that sets up false flags to “justify a war” among other tasks really does exist—it’s not just part of the novel, it’s real. This “consortium” also occasionally creates theatrical scenes of bloody violence, but it’s really all done with fake blood, guns loaded with blanks, and actors.

Many analysts have argued that such fake mayhem was staged at the Boston bombing and in both Paris “terrorist attacks.” They cite at least one piece of undeniable, smoking-gun evidence: The fake shooting of a policeman lying on the sidewalk outside the Charlie Hebdo offices.

Brown gives us this FACTUAL-not-fictional information in Inferno, a book that has sold more than six million copies—millions of them on Amazon and through Barnes and Noble. Yet the book Nobody Died at Sandy Hook, which argues that similar techniques were used to create the illusion of a school massacre, has been refused distribution by these two companies.

Maybe someone should subpoena Dan Brown and depose him on what he knows about this “consortium” and how he knows it.

But Brown, Chris Carter, and other widely-distributed popular culture creators are not stepping all that far out of line by raising the issue of false flags. They are simply reflecting a new reality—a new paradigm, if you will—in which public awareness of false flags is rapidly reaching the tipping point.

At the end of Inferno, Dan Brown’s false-flag illusion-meister gets his just desserts.

Will Dick Cheney  live long enough to be brought to justice for his role commanding 9/11 from the White House basement?

The way the paradigm is shifting, it could be only a matter of time.

    Excellent article. And Dr. Barrett gets it right on this, finally all the truth that has been published and broadcast via the Internet is diffusing to the masses and reaching a critical mass.

  2. Dutch Treat  January 24, 2016 at 3:25 pm

    The consortium is just another name Brown gives for the Jesuits

    As a side note: False Flag is a very old term, a maritime term, from the days sailing vessels would be identified by and communicate with flags they carried in the mast. There were hundreds of different flags for all sorts of cummunication.

    By way of deception/surprise ships would be able to come close enough or gain a dangerous position to use their guns in the most lethal way.

    An “attack under false flag” was considered a war crime, no prisoners would be taken either way, all on the losing side would be killed.

    Never heard of Inferno. Thanks for the heads up. I’ll have to get it now.

    Of course what Dr. Barrett is talking about in this great article is con artists who seek to deliberately fool and deceive duped members of our population in order to induce them into believing something that is false or fake or fraudulent, is true. This is garden variety fraud and deception with evil intent no different than a common criminal committing a crime in the dark of night to avoid detection. It is like the old pirate ships putting up the flag of another to fool their victims of who is looting them. No true scientist or physicist would ever, ever, ever…. Engage in such dishonest antics. But ignorant politicians like Bush or Obama seek to disparage and obstruct any questioning or critical analysis of their many evil plots and deeds, provided to them by a bastion of secret criminals in the CIA or FBI, cooking up all these evil conspiracies they plotted against us, and we taxpayers paid for against all good honest citizens. This good article shows what a terrible error the University of Wisconsin made by dropped professor Dr. Barrett from their once great ranks. He is intelligent, open minded and has an astute critical attitude and analytical mind. He also has the guts to speak up about issues which most of the cowards in the academy remain deafeningly silent about. James Tracy was the only faculty member at the cesspool Florida Atlantic University, out of about 1000, with the same qualities as Kevin but was fired from a tenured position there.

    Here is a suggestion for Kevin: Let’s return bumper stickers and name tags to the scene with this one: “PROUD CONSPIRACY THEORIST”. Every scientist, whether in reality or not, wears the badge of “conspiracy theorist” with honor. All sciences use modeling to form mental pictures of complex physical processes hidden from detection by our five senses. Even with fancy equipment, such as X- rays or electron microscopes or the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, none of these fancy devices provide the mental pictures which only the amazing human mind is capable of providing. The “mini solar system” model of the atom or the “plum pudding” model of the nucleus or the “quark model” of the proton are all examples of “conspiracy theories”. As experimental information is developed, from measurements by many observers at different places and times in the Universe, these models are refined, we hope, to more accurately represent a mental conception of what is a “truthful” mental image of the actual process or physical structure of nature really is. Ignorant people like former president Bush likely avoided physics, mathematics, chemistry or engineering classes like the plague. This is partly why he is so ignorant and misleads all intelligent people with his foolish mocking of “conspiracy theorists’. Ignorance is bliss.

    The new series X-Files isn’t alone in mentioning False Flags. The series “Legends” (U.S. cable channel TNT and available on Netflix) starring Sean Bean, who plays a CIA deep operative, mentioned FF in a recent episode regarding the assassination of a Saudi prince in L.A. The show often “goes there” regarding blatant corruption at the highest levels and the U.S. govt playing both sides in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    Dan Brown’s writing, controversies aside, couldn’t get him published in a high school literary magazine, so this guy’s PR-hyped success is likely a function of the Zionist publishing establishment’s agenda, whose agenda, as Dr E Michael Jones argues, coincides with that of the CIA. Assuming for the sake of argument that Brown is a tool of ZIO-CIA disinformation, their motive could be to overwhelm legitimate investigation and exposure of conspiracy against the United States by trivializing it to the point where people of any importance sunconsciously come to take it no more seriously than they do a Dan Brown novel.

      Humanities departments sometimes offer courses on cities, in which students encounter the art, architecture, literature, science, philosophy, music, religion etc. associated with a particular metropolis. (My book Dr. Weird’s Weirde Tours: A Guide to Mysterious San Francisco was a spin-off of a Humanities course on San Francisco taught by Arthur Chandler.) Brown’s books cover that kind of territory beautifully—especially the architecture. He’s actually very good at what he does. Inferno provides a nice mini-tour of Florence and Venice. And as novels of ideas, the three I have read are at least interesting, though not exactly profound. This one isn’t a literary masterpiece by any means, but it’s a decent thriller ABOUT a literary masterpiece…with some provocative ideas thrown in, including the issue of false flags constructing ersatz realities.

    • Dan  January 22, 2016 at 8:12 am

      You make my point inasmuch as the supposed artistic quality consists of Gothic cheap effects, which you or I could as easily base a novel on after plagiarizing, say, the extensive geometrical esoterica of the pyramids, Gothic cathedrals, or Hagia Sophia; peppering it with geographical vignettes plagiarized from obscure travel memoirs and camera-notes taken on vacations to some cool places; and then, by plagiarizing well-worn occult mystery themes, weave it all together with labored dialogue to further the Jewish publishing industry’s agenda. But, we don’t work for them and never would. He does, and he’s made tons of money selling his soul to the Devil. I wouldn’t rule out predictive programming because you find this sort of stuff entertaining.

    Perhaps western govts blackmailed / controlled with a doomsday under the Canary islands fault line ?

    Is ait an rud é tar éis céad bliain ó Seachtain na Cásca 1916 go bhfuil saighdiur mar Miceal O’Coileán ag teastail anseo sna Stát Aontaithe in aghaidh forsaí an Diabhail. It is odd that after a hundred years since Easter Week 1916 that a soldier like Michael Collins is needed here in the United States to face the forces of the Devil.

  11. raven  January 21, 2016 at 1:41 pm

    Dr. Barrett, I feel a similar perceptive shift going on and I appreciate your consistent advocacy for it. Do you concern yourself with the possibility of “dead-enders” again upping the ante with Samson options, martial law, etc.? Does the possibility of buried nukes need to be considered, discussed, disclosed?

    • Kevin Barrett  January 22, 2016 at 5:22 am

      Sure, who doesn’t?

  12. mylomorph  January 21, 2016 at 12:54 pm

    in EASTER this year 2016 the IRISH people will celebrate 100 yrs of independence from the mighty BRITTISH EMPIRE. I have one worry that the NOT SO MIGHTY BRITTISH EMPIRE, MIGHT DO A FALSE FLAG, in order to relight the chaos they began in ’68,’69 . so if something should happen you know who you need to look at…
    THE TRIBES ARE GATHERING.and if god allows with so many AMERICANS they would’nt DARE. peace and justice for ALL INCLUDING
