Manchester false flag: “Man, 22, kills 22 on May 22”

The New York Times, "all the New World Order that's fit to print," featured the numeral 22 in both the headline and subhead
The New York Times, “all the New World Order that’s fit to print,” featured the “signature” numeral 22 in both the headline and subhead – and mentioned the “fortuitous ID” that somehow always turns up to finger the patsies

By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor

Following yesterday’s tragedy in Manchester, the term “false flag” is the hot new meme.

A scandal has developed in the UK as Labour Party activist Debbie Hicks is being shouted down by the Establishment for pointing out that Theresa May will hugely benefit from the 22-22-22 Manchester spectacle. As the Daily Mail reported:

The Daily Mail informs us:

Miss Hicks, who last year stood for Labour in the local elections in her hometown of Stroud in Gloucestershire, wrote: ‘What has happened in Manchester is awful and my thoughts are with the families.

‘However I cant help thinking this is wonderful timing for Theresa May.

‘It is well known that politicians use events as part of their campaigns or messages.’

And it wasn’t just Debbie Hicks suggesting the 22/22/22 Manchester event was a false flag. The Mail reported “a slew” of Twitter comments all agreeing that this looks like a false flag. One was from X-factor star Steve Brookstein.

Even CNN is calling this a likely false flag! And get this – Infowars is OUTRAGED! Has the world turned upside down?

When a suspected false flag raises its ugly head, the first question is always: Who benefits?

The upcoming British election, scheduled for Thursday, June 8, pits Establishment front-woman Theresa May against insurgent Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.  Corbyn, a supporter of the 9/11 truth movement, was a close friend of former Environment Minister Michael Meacher, who died mysteriously shortly after agreeing to push for an independent British investigation of 9/11.

As I wrote shortly after Meacher’s death:

Meacher suddenly dropped dead “after quite a short illness.” He had been in perfect health, and was mounting a low-key campaign to open an official inquest into 9/11 on behalf of British victims’ family members. Meacher’s death is just one of many – most notably that of WTC-7 demolition witness Barry Jennings – that were all-too-convenient for the forces behind the 9/11 cover-up.

The  British Establishment (led by the City of London banksters) will stop at nothing to make sure that 9/11 truth supporter Jeremy Corbyn – who is also a threat to expose the elite pedophile network – loses to May. And the obvious way to do that would be to stage a huge false flag to make the sheeple “rally ’round the Union Jack” behind their current leader, Theresa May.

VT editor Ian Greenhalgh points out that “it is very significant they chose to attack young people, as Corbyn’s support is by far the strongest amongst the young.” The strategic political choice to attack young people is reminiscent of the 11/13/15 attack on Paris’s Bataclan theater. That attack, many analysts have suggested, was designed to curtail the surge of support for Palestine among the French jeunesse.

Ian continues: “I’ve been to concerts in that venue, you can’t get in without being searched and that goes back as far as seeing ACDC there in 1994. They have bars inside where they sell alcohol, so they search everyone for bottles, cans etc. There is always a big pile of confiscated bottles by the door. So if they weren’t searching people, I bet it wasn’t the usual security people. That in itself smells of op”

Corbyn, like martyred American president JFK, is a sworn enemy of Israel’s nuclear program. He is pushing for “a political process to decommission Israel’s nuclear arsenal.”

Additionally, the bombing happened as Trump was leaving Saudi Arabia and heading for Occupied Jerusalem. The event reinforces the “Evil Holy War Against Radical Islamic Terrorists” theme of Trump’s mendacious Mideast tour.

Was Manchester a false flag? The recurrence of the numeral 22 – 22 victims, a 22-year-old perp, on May 22 – is a dead giveaway.

The freemasonic cabal responsible for false flag events often “signs” their work by prominently featuring the number 11 or its multiples. 9/11/01 and 11/22/63 are prominent examples. For details, see my articles:

11 examples of Illuminati numerology

“77 dead on 7/14” – numerology signals false flag

3/22 False Flag! Gladio Strikes Brussels on Satanic Holiday

Another London False Flag (dated March 22)

There were also the usual “terror drills” ahead of the live event.

The perpetrator, as always, was “well known to the authorities.” As always, Rita Kaatz of the Israeli Mossad spin-off SITE claimed responsibility on behalf of her #1 client, ISIS. And as always, the perp/patsy was kind enough to bring along an ID card and make sure it would quickly be found.

In short, all of the preliminary indications suggest that we are looking at yet another false flag, along the lines of those analyzed in my edited False Flag Trilogy.

Are “Islamic terror” events false flags? Find out! Read the False Flag Trilogy: We Are NOT Charlie Hebdo, ANOTHER French False Flag, and Orlando False Flag

Additionally, one of the most important contributors to my False Flag Trilogy, Ole Dammegard, recently predicted an upcoming Manchester attack on my radio show. Ole points out that yesterday’s  Manchester attack occurred on the fourth anniversary of the fake beheading of Lee Rigby in Woolwich. He also notes the false flaggers’ odd penchant for staging their spectacles on the 22nd of the month:

Lee Rigby – 22-05-2013
Brussels attack – 22-03-16
Munich attack – 22-07-16
London attack- 22-03-17
Manchester attack- 22-05-17
Norway attack- 22-07-11

As always, Wikipedia appeared with the signed-sealed-and-delivered version of the official story almost instantly.

Will the Manchester (suspected) false flag destroy the candidacy of another left-leaning insurgent, Jeremy Corbyn, the way the pre-election French false flags stymied Melenchon’s surge? Or will British voters prove themselves more sophisticated than their French counterparts, and send Theresa May and her false-flagging entourage down to a well-deserved defeat?

Stay tuned for updates!

*Ian Greenhalgh was right. Apparently there was a security stand-down, people were not being patted down at the entrance, as reported by this witness. This fits the common pattern: Charlie Hebdo magazine’s security protection was downgraded shortly before that attack, as noted by Maryse Wolinski, widow of slain cartoonist Georges Wolinski in The Guardian“As far as I’m concerned, there’s a kind of double violence. There’s the violence of the attack, and then there’s a second violence in the denial of police failings. How was this attack possible? I’m still asking myself that question. The police protection of the offices had been scaled down, despite the French parliament and police saying an attack on French soil was imminent.”  Other cases of “downgrading security before a big false flag” include:  Sending the head of JFK’s military security detail to the South Pole ahead of the assassination as recounted by Fletcher Prouty; sending fighter jets to the North Pole as part of an exercise on 9/11/01; jamming NYC police and fire radios on 9/11; causing CCTV cameras to mysteriously fail in London on 7/7/2005 and again for  the recent March 22 Westminster attack; jamming security communications for the Paris 11/13/15 attack; and so on. When they forget to take down the CCTV cameras, as apparently happened for the Nice truck attack last summer, we get to watch the government insist that all CCTV evidence be destroyed unseen.

*Electric_Socket (on Reddit) notes that the Manchester terror exercises bore uncanny similarities to the live event: “Also in May. Also suicide bomber. Also a small scale homemade bomb. Demo bomb also goes off in the entry/lobby area. Not too deep.”


* According to The Telegraph: “Photographs of bomb remnants found at the Manchester Arena show a trigger switch with a tiny circuit board soldered into the end, which experts say could point to a remote-control or timer built into the bomb to ensure an accomplice could detonate it if Abedi lost his nerve.” The “lost his nerve” bit is highly dubious and speculative. Almost certainly this WAS NOT A SUICIDE BOMB. Instead, the patsy set up to be an involuntary “suicide bomber” would be paid to carry a  “package” that would be blown up by a timer or more likely by remote control without the patsy’s knowledge. This was standard operating procedure in Iraq during the US Occupation. Occupation forces would pay locals to drive vehicles to and through targeted locations, the vehicles would be blown up by remote control, and the carnage blamed on a “suicide bomber.” This is how the “Sunni vs. Shia” civil war was fabricated, with Occupation forces blowing up Shia sites and blaming Sunnis and vice versa.

Bottom line: Abadi was very likely innocent.

*Ian Greenhalgh amends his earlier statement: “Note they are saying the bomb went off outside the arena so the bomber didn’t try to enter, meaning he wouldn’t have been subject to any security checks; he just mingled with the crowd of parents waiting outside then blew himself up when the kids started exiting. Also note the backpack was made by Karrimor, a British company. The factory is about 40 miles from where I live. This is an allusion to the bomb being made in Britain, not smuggled in. The BBC were talking about this today – how the bomber must have had local accomplices in order to manufacture a bomb.”


*In an excellent article published at Strategic-Culture, Matthew Jamison points out:

“Just before the Manchester attack the Conservative Party had been experiencing a sharp decline in the opinion polls. Their lead has been cut in half in the space of a few weeks and with the roll out of their «Dementia Tax» it looked as if they were really headed on to the rocks. Then events took a dreadful turn in Manchester with many innocent people losing their lives. It would appear, on the surface, to have been the work of a British born individual of Libyan descent. With a stroke the news agenda has been completely changed from stories of declining Tory opinion poll leads; Tory melt downs over the monstrous «Dementia Tax» and replaced by non-stop coverage of the appalling attack in Manchester as well as the Prime Minister Theresa May playing up to her self-styled image of the second coming of the Iron Lady. Campaigning in the General Election has been suspended. Curiously just before the attack took place the anti-Jeremy Corbyn media had been attempting to regurgitate issues surrounding Mr. Corbyn and the IRA, seeking to portray him as «soft» on terrorism and some how supportive of terrorists. Then came the Manchester terrorist attack.”

Basically because there is
It’s interesting how most accept the official narrative about the Arena-attack instead of looking towards the REAL terrorists that perpetrated it.
If I said pink elephants have been observed flying on the South Pole nobody would believe me unless I could produce an
image of the event.
That would probably apply to the government as well.
However when it comes to this
attack nobody questions these anormalities :
1. Assuming the CCTVs are working
(why wouldn’t they?),
why is there no recording of the detonation?
2. Any REAL detonation will cause damage to not only people, but also the building, windows and interior. Why is this not published since a bomb killing “22” certainly is powerful enough to create much damage.
Consider a bombattack in Baghdad where normally NO detail is missed, interior or people.
3. Why is the detonation at a fairly protected area out of view from most of the audience?
Why go for “22” victims when you can go for much larger number inside,  “66” or “77”?
Is the “terrorist” considerate?
Like Bin Laden making wtc coming safely down?
4. Everybody is carrying a camera inside the arena so why has not one single recording og the blast area been published?
5. And finally why does it not come up as a surprise that there is this information regarding the father of the “suicide-bomber”  :

Salman Abedi’s father, Ramadan Abedi, was reportedly a member of Abdelhakim Belhadj’s
Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG).
Abdelhakim Belhadj worked with the US and NATO to overthrow Gaddafi.
The Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) has a large presence in the Manchester area.
LIFG is now being linked to the Manchester Arena attack.
LIFG works for the CIA and its friends.

It is possible to stage this entirely without any victims, and that is considering children not going to school afterwards, families making interviews and so on.

  1. @Alex_B Your observations are correct!

    Luciferian deceitful play on words…

    A becomes B, B becomes C, misquotations, reverse meanings,
    half sentences, talking in circles, meaningless argumentative
    accusations, dismal attempted poetic wizardry, pathetic grab for
    attention and a huge possibility of repeated MO, hence the
    suspected appearance of a derogatory third “flanker” allegation,
    yet not intelligible enough to be a paid shill.

  2. The satanists and freemasons use numbers, dates,
    times, etc. That is fact!

    Is there a way to look beyond their black majick numbering
    system, of course, but in order
    to expose them and be on their playing field, one
    must engage.

    I appreciate Alex_B’s insights and calculations which
    would give me a headache to figure precisely. It is
    good to have a person doing the calculations that in turn
    exposes the reasons why certain horrendous murders,
    mayhem and death occur on certain satanic hoildays
    and how many will be sacrificed.

    *an observation leads me to believe that
    perhaps “Pavlov” is using “classical
    conditioning” on you to evoke a response that was originally
    evoked by another statement/question, which is why there is no
    definitive answer or question on his part.

  3. Perhaps before asking me “Yes” or “No” type questions not related directly to what I was talking about, you can clarify: 1) “Do you understand the difference between numbers (as fundamental part of Mathematics –a precise science possessing power to prove or refute things, and acceptable by all courts in the world, except the kangaroo ones of course) and Numerology, something that can be amusing or even informative, but is not a science at all (let alone a precise one) and therefore can’t be used to prove anything ?” 2) “Do you still think that the only thing that numbers (not Numerology!) prove is themselves ?” If “Yes”, then we have nothing to talk about, and if “No”, then “why were you saying it before, and repeatedly ?”

  4. Crimes against humanity, bombing in Syria or Gaza ?
    Nothing to see here.
    Oh, look aliens and false flags over there

  5. All this codes comes from Astrotheology, the original religion in former times stolen by those desert bandits.

  6. There’s nothing special of it in English. But Hebrew itself is coded language, so, if you know it, it shouldn’t be difficult to check out. Unless you want me to ask my numerous native to this language neighbors (whose number in the last 4-5 years skyrocketed from 0 to double digits), as well as their local and not so local useful idiots counterparts and bosses. Thanks to them all after a few years I realized that they all talk the same language. Not that I was eager to learn it, but they had insisted very hard. Still do, once in a while.

  7. Oh, numbers are very important. Think about what happens if you spend a night in Hotel in room 100 and the 1 falls down.

  8. That’s quite a change of tactic from “numbers are just numbers and don’t prove anything but themselves”.
    When can’t deny obvious using logic use something else instead ? Just another well-known “secret
    of Polichinelle” for anyone who’s paying attention.

  9. Is this picture with the kneecapped lady a hint on “Wounded Knee” or just a hint of a broken Kingship ?

    • That’s what it (not surprisingly) is: “Wounded(86/7)+Knee(35/4)”=121/11=11*11/11=11; Same phrase in reverse alphabet = 176/11=11+110/(11+11). A pure coincicdence, of course.

    • They already slapped it around our faces with the frontpage of the “Economist” how they work. Year after year and this year with cards of the Arcana

    • Not we presume but I and some other perhaps. You talk like my doctor “We must end take too much sugar into coffee” Maybe, Doktor, you must but not me. You want that I have to want, but I don´t want to follow your advice.

  10. Standing Rock camp Oceti Sakowin was given a 2:22 pm time of eviction on Feb 22. One thing to point out about the calendar, the real months end around the 21rst or 22nd of each month. Everything was shifted by the Gregorian invention. That is why Dece is 10 but considered the 12th month. The beginning of the year on Jan 1rst is a financial decision and has nothing to do with accurate time keeping. 22 is the number of major arcana in the tarot with 20 days, and the addition of the individual “fool” and universe “world” to make 22. it is considered a wholistic number. The masons and other cults are deemed to have a lot more knowledge than they actually do. Others are just experimenting, but the sheer number of attacks on 22 certainly is not happenstance. Somebody is trying to make it look like somebody else and knew the accumulative data would surface.

  11. And you’ve only picked out attacks with 22 what about 7\11 or the London one and why is the person that wrote this not commenting on people’s post because he’s sitting back laughing his head of

  12. Do you not think the families have went through enough agent your facts straight he was 23 not 22 if you think it was the government why don’t you uprise against them instead of writing this pish

    • He was born on 31st December 1994 which makes him 22 as of May 2017. So it looks like you’re the one who should get his facts straight.

  13. No plausible Photo and Video evidence of an “event” as being portrayed in the lapdog media. The ONE photo of the “foyer” area of the arena where the “bomb” supposedly went off is absolutely not consistent with a powerful bomb filled with shrapnel; doesn’t look anything like the scenes we’ve seen from Iraq and Syria where suicide attacks have happened; a few people in what may be EMT uniforms, doing nothing in particular, civilians apparently tending to people on the floor, NO GURNEYS, no evidence of shrapnel damage (all those fluorescent lights with plastic lenses), red faux-blood “skid marks” where I think we’re to believe that someone’s bloody body was dragged across the floor (shades of the photo from the Bataclan theater), people wandering around with no sense of urgency. No one would drag a body at such a scene.

    This is a Hoax. Period. Standard Crisis Actor fare. No evidence of the paramilitary EMT’s with green helmets theatrically arriving in another shot. Again, not a single photo of anyone on a gurney being put into an ambulance, with scads of them parked around outside with people just standing around, even having tea. No photos of people being unloaded at hospitals or clinics. But Theresa May was visiting victims in hospital. Right. Now the names and photos of the “22 victims” have been published in the Guardian, as well as a harrowing account by a “nurse” in hospital where they worked all night to remove “bolts and nuts” from victims’ lower limbs.

    • Hi brtanner, i think there are a lo of indications as you mention that this might be a hoax with crisis actors. I have searched a lot around the web for a theory that explains how are those actors then kept in secret, especially when they have declared dead like the 8 year old girl of this attack. How is this “crisis actress” going to be able to go about her life now? and what about all the others..? Can someone cast some light into this please?
      ps. I did hear 1 theory, someone suggested that they get enrolled on the pretext of a drill / training scenario where they need paid actors and then it turns out to be the real hoax / by that time they know that if they speak out they will be dead *killed. What doesnt convince me about this theory is that still, people might simply recognize them from the photos when they go about their daily routine.

    • Always watch the eyes of the so called withnesses when the are reading from a teleprompter like Obama did. The seldomly look direct into the camera, they mostly look into the right or left lower corner. In theaters they have Soufleurs for this.

  14. 3 x 22’s in Manchester bombing (date 22nd, bombers age 22, deaths 22)

    322 is an important number for the Illuminati/Skull and Bones!

  15. Good day to you Dr Barrett,
    I just wanted to tell you what the police seem to be telling there officers about the number `22`. I pointed out this recurring number to a family members he in turn alerted another family member who is a serving police officer. The question off the `22` was raised at a meeting at the police station, the person whom was instructing them said “Yes, we know about the `22` but you must ignore it because those are a few random dates and there have been hundreds of terrorist attacks. I sense they do not want there officers thinking to hard. Do you have anything to say on what was said to the officers, I would like to counter what was said above. The `22`s are creepy to say the least.

    • Good list. About half of which I know for sure are “signed” cases. The rest is likely too, considering the type of corresponding events. Though, technically, to claim it one has to perform (or see) at least a superficial analysis covering all major points the main attributes of the case generate (about a dozen at least).

    • No response from your link, but regardless, I analyzed this case 2 days ago – a 100% “signed” one, with all its component and description of event (total over 30 points) perfectly aligned on the code “1 6 / 9 1”. Naturally also in complete sink with present in the date “special” number 22(=11+11=6+16).

    • it really pokes you direct into the eyes, even like poking the Russian bear the reaction may be.

  16. now throw this into the mix and we can see motive to throw off the scent….. President Rodrigo Duterte told RT and other Russian media ahead of his visit to Moscow. . be sure to watch it all.
    Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte arrived in Russia on Monday to begin a five-day visit, marking closer relations between Moscow and Manila.

    …. clearer now?

    • moving the game to their grande arena….chosen specifically to send a clear message

  17. Let me guess that the new “Sunday Law” when the NWO Religion is installed you have to worship on every 22nd of month while the zodiac sign will change to a new one. Maybe that they even invent a new Calender like we saw with the Gregorian Calender Reform to fit the signs of Zodiac.

  18. The problem with all these events is the patsy is all that remains of the conspiracy. What we need are the names and identities of those who planned and hired the patsy and put the details of these crimes together. One could do a reverse investigation backward in time beginning with the suggested beneficiary Theresa May. A thorough enough effort might even show she initiated it to begin with. I would bet she had foreknowledge of this false flag event in her favor.

  19. Footage I saw showed a bunch of “parents” standing around calmly
    as if waiting for the “scene” to end after they all ran down the stairs.

    One person interviewed could hardly keep a straight face.

    Shaky cell phone vids so you couldn’t see the delayed reaction to
    the “scary noise” as described by some participants.

    The usual MO in the usual false flag 4 (FF4) countries. UK, US, France, Belgium.

  20. Numbers 22(=11+11), 121(=11*11), 1111, and all their versions with zeroes (Kaballah ignores zeroes), like 2002, 1210, 11011, etc. are revered by the Occultists. Same goes for various versions of 666, like 18=6+6+6, 216=6*6*6, 396=66*6, and those with nulls 6066, 2160, 1800, etc. Also for their combinations like 95=6*6*6-11*11, 59=60+60+60-11*11, 220/18=(110+110)/(6+6+6), etc. There are some other “magic” numbers “to get excited about”. But who cares what they worship and what games they play among themselves ? The problem is that they are playing with us. They are turning this world into lunatic asylum, at the same time assigning themselves as omnipotent nurses and doctors. On whose authority ? The illusionists in circuses have more talent and authority to trick millions.

    • It looks to me like a message to someone we don´t know now as they don´t write vocals in messeges like I, A, O, U and E.

    • Those 22s add-up to 66 which has no “magic” power, at least by itself. But there’s endless list of meanings for “11:11” online – from a Gateway or Portal between two worlds to the sign of a spirit (based on related actions an evil one) present. And if they want to send messages to someone why don’t they do it in the privacy of their basements or magic (broomstick) rooms ? Why does it have to be a public place and public madness ?!

  21. Let´s see next time the change on Zodiac to CANCER June 22nd, a satanic high holyday w human sacrify and the sun at its highest point, shortest night. After this comes LEO and so on until it starts again on December 21st – 25th.

  22. The beginning of the Zodiac sign of the Twins began with a big bang. Twins, Twin Towers, Boaz and Jachin, 2 headed god Janus etc.
