Policing thought in America: Why can’t we discuss the events of 9/11?

By Jim Fetzer | Online Journal | March 22, 2010

The brain trust that calls itself “The Huffington Post” has disgraced itself and shown the “progressive left” is a cowardly fraud by removing a column guest written by Jesse Ventura about 9/11.

The official explanation from no less than Arianna Huffington, presumably, is “Editor’s Note: The Huffington Post’s editorial policy, laid out in our blogger guidelines, prohibits the promotion and promulgation of conspiracy theories — including those about 9/11. As such, we have removed this post.” Maybe no one explained to these worthies that if any one were to write about 9/11, they would be writing about a conspiracy theory, since the government’s own “official account” is only the most outrageous. And, as Jesse’s new book, AMERICAN CONSPIRACIES (2009) elucidates, there have been many throughout our history.

Conspiracies are as American as apple pie. All they require are two or more individuals acting together to bring about an illegal end. When a couple of guys knock off a 7/11, they are engaged in a conspiracy, even if they are subsequently charged with armed robbery instead. Most America conspiracies are economic, like Enron, WorldCom, and Halliburton. Bernie Madoff comes to mind, since he can’t possibly have done it alone. Since the “official account” maintains that 19 Islamic fundamentalists hijacked four commercial carriers, outfoxed the most sophisticated air defense system in the world, and perpetrated these atrocities under the control of a guy in a cave in Afghanistan, it is a conspiracy theory, too.

Apparently that subject is taboo at The Huffington Post. But if that is the case, then many important events are not going to be covered there. Conspiracies to murder political leaders are far older than the assassination of Julius Caesar and include attempts on the lives of Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley, and Truman. Four of those involved in the Lincoln conspiracy were hanged from the same gallows at the same time. Consider the range of events that could not be understood absent conspiracies as David Mantik, M.D., Ph.D., listed them in his chapter, “The Silence of the Historians,” MURDER IN DEALEY PLAZA (2000), page 402:

Foreign Targets/Assassination Conspiracies (20th Century): Franz Ferdinand / Rajiv Gandhi / Louis Mountbatten / Czar Nicholas II / Adolf Hitler / Rafael Trujillo / Salvadore Allende / Charles DeGaulle / Benigo Aquino / Anwar Sadat / Luis Colosio / Leon Trotsky / Ngo Dinh Diem / Rene Schnneideer / Nhu / Jacobo Arbenz / Grigorli Rasputin / Fidel Mohammed Mossadegh / Castro / Pancho Villa / Ngo Dihn Patrice Lumumba / Pope John Paul II / Saddam Hussein / Manuel Noriega.

Egad! What would Shakespeare have had to write about but for plots against the kings and queens of England? And in the US (20th Century), the list would be extended to include John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, Watergate, Abscam, Iran-Contra, Senator Paul Wellstone, Cpl. Pat Tillman, and many others as well, if you consider the evidence. So if the American press is not even willing to investigate conspiracies, we are going to be unable to begin to understand our own history, including the stories that appear on virtually every page of The New York Times, as I documented in “Thinking about ‘Conspiracy Theories’: 9/11 and JFK,” accessible via Google and published in my book, THE 9/11 CONSPIRACY: THE SCAMMING OF AMERICA (2007). What would history be without them?

The Huffington Post is not the only prominent offender. Even has refused to carry the DVD of a conference on “The Science and Politics of 9/11: What’s Controversial, What’s Not,” that I organized in Madison, Wisconsin, 5-7 August 2007. It runs 14-½ hours and includes presentations and discussion about many aspects of 9/11. A publisher tired to market it on and found it was suppressed:

As a former Marine Corps officer and retired professor of philosophy, I am at a loss as to what has become of this once-great country of ours. Are we so afraid of the examination of what our government has told us about “the pivotal event of the 21st century” that even progressive publications like The Huffington Post and presumably impartial business operations like refuse to publish a column by the former governor of Minnesota or to carry the DVD of a meeting of experts on different aspects of the case? What is there to be afraid of, unless the official account is a house of cards that will collapse if it is critically scrutinized?

And that indeed appears to be the case. According to the “official account” of the destruction of the Twin Towers, the planes hit the buildings, the resulting fires weakened the steel, and a pancake collapse of one floor upon another ensued. But that description is not remotely consistent with the gross observable photo evidence. The buildings appear to be tuning into millions of cubic yards of fine dust:

Revealing new aerial photos of 9/11 attack released
James Fetzer, VoltaireNet, 18 February 2010

New 9/11 Photos Released
James Fetzer, 10 February 2010

Does this look remotely like a “pancake collapse” to you? A set of 9/11 photos were recently released which, when they are temporally sequenced, provide a glimpse of what was actually going on, which was no “pancake collapse.” Every American deserves to see that the “official account” cannot even accommodate the gross appearance of the Twin Towers as they were destroyed even below ground level.

No one knows exactly how this was done, It appears to have required a highly sophisticated combination of conventional and unconventional means. Once you understand that the sequence of events these photos display cannot have been the result of a “pancake collapse,” that there was no “collapse” at all as these two 500,000-ton buildings were converted into very fine dust, but that some complex form of a demolition under control was taking place and you begin to grasp why not even The Huffington Post or can allow you the least glimpse of what actually happened on 9/11. It was indeed “the scamming of America” and the reasons appear to have had nothing to do with Islam or “Arab hijackers.”

  1. Hmm. Why am I only now seeing this article. My take on it. this is not a new phenomenon. Why is it that the holocaust and events preceding and proceeding cannot be discussed?

    • They sure have mastered the response for anyone who might even ask just a question about any aspect of the holocost’s validity due to lacking evidence! But this in and of itself should make everyone understand they are being lied to because truth does not require laws to protect it nor does it require a full time army of slanderous propaganda spreaders spewing their verbal garbage in it’s defense! This goes for 9-11 as well because the same groups and individuals are creating their false history of it as well. It is quite obvious Israel was deeply involved with 9-11 and it also promotes the only allowed version of the holohoax. Makes complete sense if you dissect the whole enchilada. Both of these lies have gotten so out of hand that anyone involved with the propagation of one or both of these lies can only lie about the subject now for they understand the consequences of being such lap dog’s to satan and they all have nightmares of being exposed for the pieces of s*^t they truly are

  2. Anyone who hasn’t already discovered that the Huffington Post is just another Zionist rag pretending to be “alternative news” is an idiot. What does it take for someone to pull their head out of their butt and decide that they no longer choose to be lied to? How many times does a moron have to be lied to before he stops believing whatever the liar tells him?

  3. i been banned for the heebington post long ago for commenting about 911 and other zionist crimes ,this should come as no surprise


    Comment by bostonblah | May 12, 2013

  4. Holohoax censorship was the trial balloon and the model. Now they can censor anything they want. Puzzling is why this article fails to mention 315 MILLION dollar deal HuffPo sealed to sell itself to AOL, after AOL-Time Warner’s flame out. This is not, nor ever has been, an alternative site. Strictly MSM from top to bottom- no surprise they’d ban 911 stuff. Like the slickest gatekeepers out there- Democracy Now and Cockburn’s Counterpunch- HPo has eliminated journalistic enquiry into the biggest event of the century. Totally consistent with their roles to coverup while masquerading as ‘muckrakers’ with integrity. Laughably, Cockburn even declares himself “radical”!? while being from a family of media insiders.

    • And CounterPunch’s new editor, Jeffry St. Clair, is no different. Happily re-posting anti-Chavez and pro-intervention in Syria propaganda from the “left” Le Monde. Writers need to boycott rather than submit.
