False Flags: On & About This Week's Show

What is a false flag?
A false flag, generally speaking, is an operation conducted by the government but blamed on another party with the intention of justifying hostile action the government wishes to take against that other party. For example, 9/11 truthers think the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, was a false flag operation conducted by the US government to justify ultimately invading Iraq. I am not a 9/11 truther both because I am not convinced by the evidence offered to support the claim and because I believe the operation was so large and so risky that the US government wouldn’t have taken the chance that the consequences would have been uncontrollable. I will continue to have an open mind on the subject, but for now I’m not convinced, but I am convinced in numerous other cases.

NATO 3

Three men were arrested recently on charges of terrorism for allegedly plotting to throw Molotov cocktails at police during the NATO Summit protests in Chicago last week. I have read reports, however, that there were police informants involved in the plot and that the lawyers for the NATO 3, as they have been called, claim the incident was a “false flag” to justify police brutality during the demonstrations. I’m not certain these guys were innocent, but I do smell a rat when a small, one-off operation is foiled by insiders who happen to be informants. I can understand how informants bust mobs and other large scale organizations after years of hard work and deep infiltration, but for an informant just to happen upon an amateurish plot seems too coincidental and almost always seems like entrapment to me and this case is no different.
A caller suggested I was defending terrorists in objecting to such entrapment

False Flags: Does the Government Set Up People (and Other Governments!) to Justify Retaliation? A few months ago I didn’t even know what the expression false flag meant, now I know they’re everywhere. Does the government really create operations to justify actions that would otherwise be unpopular? I may not think 9/11 was an inside (more…)

SEIU Plotted JPMorgan Shareholder Protest A Year Ago

Concerned citizens marched on the JPMorgan shareholder meeting last week to express their outrage over the risks the bank takes and the losses it bestowed upon its shareholders. The only reason the citizens have any right to protest the actions of banks is that the government bails them out. These people should be protesting at (more…)

Peter Schiff at Occupy Wall Street

I don’t know where Peter Schiff gets the patience to go down to Wall Street and try to explain economic principles to the protesters there. To their credit many are reasonable, but others won’t accept his arguments even though they have none of their own. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGL-Ex1CD1c]

And they called the Tea Party AstroTurf?

The SEIU today sent out this press release. Honestly, when I posted Tuesday the hidden audio of the SEIU’s Steve Lerner plotting earlier this year to organize a countrywide rolling protest against Wall Street, I didn’t think the actual SEIU would go public with Occupy

Occupy Wall Street leaderless? Or is the SEIU behind it?

Steve Lerner of the SEIU was caught on hidden audio earlier this year on his plan to roll out Wall Street protests around the country. The Occupy Wall Street website expressly claims to be a “leaderless resistance movement.” Does this sound like a coincidence to you? [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B0PlElVWshk]
