How to spot a fake event

[Note: This will be our last post in this format. By midday tomorrow, a new format that allows immediate access to all our writers and their work will be used. ]


Both shot


This is an attempt to come up with a set of criteria by which we can judge whether a terrorist event is real or fake. I put together a list of behaviors by police, medical and news people.

Fake shooting event in Denver, 11/1/17, 11 PM

Mass murder suspect Scott Ostrem

Numeric signals, I know, are a matter of uncertainty with readers here. I have wondered if I merely find what I am looking for … confirmation bias, but they are too prevalent and consistent, way too predictable.

We had a mass murder last night in Denver last night. A man supposedly walked into a Walmart and just started shooting people. He hit three, they all died. He was a very good shot. [He fired thirty shots, hit three people. Got it?]

OstremThe photo of Ostrem, whose name appears scrubbed at Geni.com, has been bugging me. Do you notice, as I do, a different shading of skin color around the eyes? It is almost as if they have inserted a pair of sinister and close-set eyes in the photo. Or, he could have an occupation that requires he wears goggles  … welder? Aviator? Does he wear a hat for a living that keeps his high forehead covered? And what is with the pink cardigan and high collar – it looks effeminate, almost as if they pasted his head on a woman’s shoulders.

But overall, this photo does strongly resemble that if the man leaving a store down below. Keep in mind that we make assumptions when watching news, and don’t verify. The photo of this man and the man below being the same man only means that they are the same man, and not that this man committed any crimes, or that the photo below was taken at WalMart in Thornton. Maybe it was, but we need to verify details, something that is never done with news broadcasts. People just accept them at face. If this is a fake event, both photos could have been taken anywhere, anytime.

11111111111……

IMG_2474As might be readily apparent, we are killing time here before flying back home tomorrow. Yesterday we walked in the wine country on the north shore of Lake Geneva near the town of St. Saphorin. This part of Switzerland is low in elevation (about 1,200 feet) and so supports vineyards and wineries.

I noticed that the official growing season begins after September harvest with pruning and removal of older vines, and that it is traditionally on the feast of St. Martin of Tours, which falls on 11/11, or if the much older calendar is used, 9/11. (“Nova” is nine, so that “making a novena” is attendance at nine masses in a row, as all current and fallen-away Catholics know, including those of us who never did one).

The insertion of January and February caused the last ten months to be pushed back two months (so that the last four, Septa, Octa, Nona and Deca, 7, 8, 9 and 10, became 9, 10, 11 and 12 .) Quintilus (fifth month) and Sextillus (sixth month) were renamed July and August, but this did not cause the two-month pushback.

The Bogus Business Plot: Part 2: Smedley Butler, The Lying Quaker

The revered general who saved FDR from Wall Street takes a pounding as Josh undresses him in Part Two of his essay. Butler, like John F. Kennedy,  John McCain, John Kerry and others who came to prominence via military heroism, turns out to be a paper tiger whose exploits were phony.

The Curious Case of the Jerusalem Truck Attack: Notes on “Operation Fantasy Land”

On January 8, 2017, a resident of the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabel Mukaber plowed his flat-bed truck into a group of IDF soldiers getting off a bus near a promenade overlooking the Old City. Or did he?

Surveillance footage surfaced showing the moment the truck slammed into the soldiers and was broadcast worldwide. When I saw that video, I was skeptical, to say the least. Don’t get me wrong: the Palestinians have more than enough reasons to want to drive over a gaggle of Israeli soldiers. But there is a wealth of evidence that most, if not all, terrorist attacks are hoaxed, especially those of recent years. And if the IDF footage of the Mavi Marmara raid is anything to go by, I had good reason to suspect hanky panky here as well.

So I put together a post with a slam-dunk case showing how and why the footage was fake, fake, fake. I was about to post it, but then…something really unexpected happened that forced me to question everything.  Continue reading “The Curious Case of the Jerusalem Truck Attack: Notes on “Operation Fantasy Land””

(Fake) Reality Hits You Hard, Bro

A man yells at the media as Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump speaks during a campaign event in Phoenix

So there I was, scanning The Huffington Post to get a sense of the latest propaganda, and all of a sudden I was just minding my own business, when BAM! The picture above came out of nowhere up and hit me in the cranium right between the eyes. And I was like  “Wuuughghghghgh!” Sometimes reality hits you hard.

The picture was accompanied with this headline: “Trump Pounces On Emails As Supporter Chants ‘Jew S. A.” You can follow that link to the videos there or watch this:

Now, the reason the picture knocked me back in my chair was not due to this man’s shocking behavior that shows Trump supporters are anti-Semites who use neo-Nazi hand signals. The cause of the interocular trauma was that I instantly recognized the guy.

The Dreyfus Affair on Trial

Miles Mathis posted a paper I wrote showing that the famous Dreyfus Affair was a manufactured hoax. For those of you coming here from that paper, welcome! Below I have a brief clarification about the goals of the Dreyfus affair plus a bonus outing of another French spook. But first a few preliminaries:

I am a new addition to the blog here along with several regulars who have until now only contributed to the comments section. Mark Tokarski is the captain who prefers to stay out of the limelight. He welcomes thoughtful comments and constructive criticism. But he runs a tight ship, so please be thoughtful and respectful when commenting or you might have to walk the shill plank. (-;

Mark, along with another contributor who goes by straightfromthedevilsmouth (or ‘straight’ for short), has discovered a shocking number of celebrities who we know as a single persona but are actually ‘played’ by identical twins. If you’ve read Miles’s work, you know that Intelligence loves twins, like Paul & Mike McCartney and Elvis & Aron Presley. Well it turns out those ones are just a drop in the bucket. You can find all of the twins uncovered so far in The Honor Roll of Twins on the right sidebar under the Blogroll. We have a working hypothesis that twins can be ‘engineered’ by artificial embryo splitting, but that’s for another day.
