Understanding Deep Politics

1967 CIA Memo Is Still Used to Discredit Conspiracy Theorists Today


Further reading:

Conspiracy Theory in America investigates how the Founders’ hard-nosed realism about the likelihood of elite political misconduct—articulated in the Declaration of Independence—has been replaced by today’s blanket condemnation of conspiracy beliefs as ludicrous by definition. Lance deHaven-Smith reveals that the term “conspiracy theory” entered the American lexicon of political speech to deflect criticism of the Warren Commission and traces it back to a CIA propaganda campaign to discredit doubters of the commission’s report.

JASTA veto imminent!

A message from Les Jamison of
Sept 19, 2016

Hello fellow advocates for 9/11 justice,

It took nearly 14 years of effort to force the release of the 28 pages from the Congressional Joint Inquiry Report on 9/11. It was a no-brainer for anyone with even the slightest interest in understanding how 9/11 could have occurred. Following the money trail is part of prosecuting the crime. However, exposing the 9/11 flow of funds revealed in the 28 pages would have made the 2003 invasion of Iraq politically impossible. This was a criminal abuse of power and fraud upon the American people, as well as the world. It was clear by the opposition we saw in May from Pres. Obama, CIA Director John Brennan, Tom Kean and Lee Hamilton, the last thing the powers manipulating military policy wanted was for the pages to be released. Furthermore, despite feigning a desire for full disclosure of the 28 pages, declassification as well as being the target of litigation is the last thing Saudi Arabia wanted, as evidenced by their threat of financial blackmail by selling $750 billion worth of U.S. treasuries. But due to intense lobbying efforts by the 9/11 families, a determined group of legislators, the public, and surprisingly from many mainstream news sources, there was no way the Obama administration and deep state manipulators could suppress the release of the 28 pages. Fourteen years of falsely-based secrecy is far too long.

Now that the 28 pages have been released showing clear evidence of funding leading back to the Bush family’s close friend, Prince Bandar and his wife, Princess Haifa, plus certain Saudi charities, for Congress to vote unanimously for passage of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act is historic as a bi-partisan effort, as well as an act of revolt. Remember, every member of Congress is acutely aware of the risk they take on by challenging the official narrative. Nevertheless, this was an uprising against the military policy makers who rule with shock and awe tactics after orchestrating what Gen. Wesley Clark termed a “policy coup” which 9/11 provided the grounds for.

The JASTA bill will be presented to Pres. Obama within days. Although some legislators have been quoted as confidently saying they’ll have a 2/3rd majority to over ride the veto, a recent article in Bloomberg Markets indicated that certain Republicans may try to delay the veto, which could result in the bill expiring while Congress is on recess in coming months. This back-handed tactic is referred to as a “pocket veto”. Others may try to interfere by changing language in the bill, which has already gone through 5 years of refinement. With 3/4 of Americans who want all secret documents released and believe our government has misled us regarding the facts (as shown by a Rasmussen Reports poll, April 25th), we have a historic opportunity to put the White House and Congress on notice that a sizeable majority knows we’ve been lied to about 9/11, knows that there has been a cover up of the facts which must not stand, and demand passage of JASTA because Saudi Arabia is not an ally. It is a brutal dictatorship guilty of crimes against humanity. Actually, this is also an opportunity to give Obama his first veto over ride!

Furthermore, if the U.S. isn’t guilty of war crimes, it should have nothing to fear from other countries suing Americans, right? If the U.S. is guilty of war crimes, the only way to restore our honor is to provide relief for the damages done in the name of equal justice. Also worthy of consideration is the fact that Saudi Arabia has spent millions on public relations efforts targeting each member of Congress. Now we must raise our voice.

With passage of JASTA, the 9/11 family’s ability to resume their law suit against Saudi Arabia will be restored. Then evidence far beyond the 28 pages and far beyond what we’re even aware of will have the possibility of coming forth. As with any legal action, unexpected evidence, witnesses, and whistleblowers can show up. Congressman Walter Jones has said the 28 pages can open “a multitude of doors and they all should be investigated”.

Beginning Monday, please take 15 minutes to call the following congressional leaders urging them to remain in session until the veto is announced and they vote to over ride it.

House Speaker:

Paul Ryan: (202) 225-3031 (press #6)

Senate Majority Leader:

Mitch McConnell: (202) 224-2541

Senate Minority Leader:

Harry Reid: (202) 224-3542

Then call your Senators and member of the House urging them to stand strong and vote to over ride President Obama’s veto of JASTA.

Next, please tell everyone you know in or near Washington, DC, that there will be a rally in front of the White House in Lafayette Park on Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 12:30 pm.

Obama’s Dilemma: Justice for 9-11 Families or Saudi Arabia?

Let’s show our elected officials as well as the beaurocrats who’s boss! Please spread the word!

9/11 Convergence: Technical and Legal Professionals Unite on Full Justice for Sept. 11th Victims


Sep 14, 2016, 08:40 ET

News provided by
Lawyers Committee for 9/11 Inquiry

NEW YORK, Sept. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — At a two-day Symposium ‘9/11: Justice in Focus’ held Sept. 10th and 11th at historic Cooper Union Great Hall in New York City, renowned technical and legal professionals formally committed to further investigate and comprehensively prosecute the crimes of 9/11.

The Conference featured keynote addresses by former Chief Justice and Honorary President of the Supreme Court of Italy Ferdinando Imposimato and New York Times “Pentagon Papers” attorney Daniel Sheehan who joined a panel of experienced lawyers providing legal analysis of forensic-evidence testimony from licensed engineering and architectural professionals. Moderating were international human rights attorney William Pepper and New York University professor Mark Crispin Miller.

The full two-day program and access to the archived videos are at www.911justiceinfocus.org and www.noliesradio.org.

“We had the unprecedented opportunity to present before this esteemed panel of legal professionals the forensic evidence that three WTC skyscrapers, WTC 1 and 2 — and WTC 7 not hit by any  plane — all featured the key signatures of controlled demolition,” said Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth founder and president Richard Gage, AIA.

“As Arthur Conan Doyle famously said, ‘Once you’ve eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth’,” said Lawyers Committee for 9/11 Inquiry Vice President Mick Harrison, “and the evidentiary presentations established these forensic facts beyond any reasonable doubt.”

“And how did the official authorities deal with all of this [physical and eyewitness] evidence” of controlled demolitions?” asked Professor Emeritus Graeme MacQueen, a member of the 9/11 Consensus Panel and co-editor of the Journal of 9/11 Studies. “The answer is simple. They didn’t … All my studies of the eyewitness testimonies conclude that explosions [independent of plane impacts and resulting fires] brought down these buildings.”

“The scientific and legal consensus from the Symposium together with recent legislative actions by Congress — the release of the ’28 Pages’ and unanimous votes for the Justice Against Victims of Terrorism Act (J.A.S.T.A) by both the House and the Senate — greatly advanced the mission of the New York State Legislative Action Project for 9/11 Justice,” said Project director Les Jamieson.

“The September 11th attacks are one of those high crimes that can cause the very foundations of the law to tremble,” said renowned public interest attorney Daniel Sheehan. “In such cases, bringing the real perpetrators to justice will require far more than just concerted legal action. It will require a grassroots movement akin to a national political campaign.”

The launch of just such a new nationwide grassroots organizing effort — the 9/11 Truth Action Project [www.911TAP.org] — was announced by coordinator William Jacoby.

Symposium Sponsors were Lawyers Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, New York State Legislative Action Project for 9/11 Justice, 9/11 Consensus Panel, and 9/11 Truth Action Project.

Demolition of Truth

Streamed live on Aug 25, 2016 –

Please support CPT12.org for there airing of this important film.

September 11, 2001 marked one of the most tragic days in American history. Fifteen years later, the events of that day continue to have a visceral and even traumatic impact on many Americans. Additionally, millions of Americans and citizens around the world question the official account of that day.

DEMOLITION OF TRUTH presents testimony from highly-credentialed scientists, engineers, and military experts, including Dr. Robert Bowman, Dr. Lynn Margulis, Dr. Niels Harrit, and many more. This expert testimony is interwoven with analyses by social scientists who examine the psychological impact of 9/11 and the phenomena that have kept us blinded to truths too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves.

The film concludes with steps we can take, individually and collectively, toward healing. An epilogue by actor Ed Asner summarizes these analyses, emphasizing the role played by mainstream media that, lamentably, parrot their government sources rather than question them.
