In my recent article noting a “false flag paradigm shift” I pointed out that two of the biggest voices in popular culture, Dan Brown and X Files, are now taking false flags seriously. The new X Files series outright tells us that “9/11 was a false flag.”
Some have argued that despite their huge audiences, Dan Brown and X files represent a “conspiratorial” type of pop culture that is not going to help promote serious consideration of the false flag meme.
Maybe, maybe not. But now get this: The two biggest and most venerable pillars of American mainstream print media, TIME-Life and the New York Times, are jumping on the bandwagon.
The new issue of TIME-Life includes an article on “Modern-Day Conspiracy Theories.” Martin Hill explains:
They presented a chart describing 5 or so theories regarding 9/11. The top was that the U.S. government had advance knowledge of the 9/11 attacks and did nothing to prevent it. The last theory listed was that Israel did 9/11 to justify wars and Israel’s agenda….They did not present it (the “Israel did it” theory”) in a disparaging manner.
The New York Times has also gotten into the act. During the past two weeks they have published not one but TWO articles prominently referencing 9/11 truth.
Unfortunately the NY Times IS somewhat disparaging. Its January 22nd op-ed ‘The X-Files’ in the Age of Truthers lashes out at Chris Carter’s new Fox-TV mini-series:
…watching TV heroes embrace conspiracy theories isn’t much fun when presidential candidates foster gun-confiscation paranoia and a 9/11 truther is campaigning for Donald Trump in Iowa.”
Methinks the Times is worried. I’m sure it “isn’t much fun” watching 9/11 truth creeping up on you after you’ve spent the past decade-and-a-half suppressing it—making yourself party to high treason, mass murder and crimes against humanity.
The other recent NY Times reference to 9/11 truth is even less complimentary: It’s a key part of the Times’ hit piece on Donald Trump’s Iowa campaign. The author of this poison-pen screed, Trip Gabriel, attacks Trump’s campaign by portraying it as inexperienced, ineffective, and featuring – gasp – an actual 9/11 truther!
That would be my friend Rick Shaddock of the Association for 9/11 Truth Awareness (ANETA). Rick splits his time between Fairfield, Iowa and Washington, DC. Normally he does most of his extensive 9/11 truth lobbying in DC. He explained:
I have been talking to presidential candidates from Bernie to Trump (about 9/11) as they go near Fairfield and get to see them in person better than on Capitol Hill in DC.”
He adds: “Although Trip tripped me up, making the Trump campaign look bad, I am happy he mentioned 9/11 Truth, and even a hypothetical situation, that I would have stood up to say that remote control of the ATALS explains the planes flying into the WTC better than the story of Muslim hijackers.”
Does Rick really think a President Trump would expose the truth about 9/11 and prosecute the perpetrators?
To find out, you’ll have to wait till I interview him (Rick, not Trump) on Truth Jihad Radio. The show should available to subscribers by Tuesday evening, and will be broadcast Wednesday 10-11 a.m. Central on NoLiesRadio.org.
