So I started watching Loose Change last night and, as expected, it reeked of classic conspiracy theory, right down to the adenoidal voice of the presenter. I've heard Cain slag off the "truther" movement in general and (iirc) this movie in particular. One problem - and from a layman's pov (I've never looked into any of this) a lot of fucking convincing arguments.

If the documents shown were made up? If the experts opinions were not from real experts? If it wasn't for the fact that most of the people refuting these claims are bloody politicians then maybe I would have a harder time believing this shit but, as it stands, I'm seeing no real holes in their story.

Please to poke some before I become a believer.  :x
You know, theres also this kid that doesn't need food or water and just sits around all day.

Yeah but I have things like Classic Newtonian Physics to refute that one with. Apparently the two towers actually did fall down :lulz:
I'm saying, if you're dumb enough to actually believe loose change, I think you'd be dumb enough to not believe that someone can't hibernate.
Please don't tell me you think hibernation could allow that kid to go without water for a year. Hibernation is a not a lossless energy system.

Once again, let me just make my stance on the whole issue clear: I don't "believe" anything atm in regards to the "buddha boy", I find the story fascinating and want to know what exactly is going on.

Anyway, Pent doesn't want me bring this shit up in his precious thread so I'll leave it at that.
I said think, you said "dumb enough to not believe". Finding out whats going on doesn't include whether or not that kid or anyone alive in the last year has ingested water.

Ok, once again: I was poking/having a go at Pent. I was saying, if you're going to believe in what loose change has to say, you mighty as well start believing buddha boy is the real deal as well.

I'm remaining skeptic, both of his supposed abilities and that hes a fraud.
I'm just looking for answers here.



- So the New World Order does not actually exist?
- Oh it exists, and how!
Ask the slaves whose labour built the White House;
Ask the slaves of today tied down to sweatshops and brothels to escape hunger;
Ask most women, second class citizens, in a pervasive rape culture;
Ask the non-human creatures who inhabit the planet:
whales, bears, frogs, tuna, bees, slaughtered farm animals;
Ask the natives of the Americas and Australia on whose land
you live today, on whose graves your factories, farms and neighbourhoods stand;
ask any of them this, ask them if the New World Order is true;
they'll tell you plainly: the New World Order… is you!

The conspiracy is actually that the government is behind the Truthers.

Here's the way 9/11 went down:

1) Months in advance, AQ starts planning.
2) At some point US Intel gets wind of the plot, but not the specifics.
3) For whatever reason, (hubris?) neither Clinton or Bush recoginize the seriousness of the situation.
4) The Shit Hits The Towers
5) Unable to admit that it screwed the Pooch, the Bush administration drops a few psyops people off at an Internet Cafe where they start the Truther movement to distract the conspiracy theorists and make any claims about the nature of events appear as crazy conspiracy theories.



Genius! I'm switching to this one until further notice. Was a friend of a friend who recommended LC was "pretty convincing"

I'd like to point out many prominent Truthers have longstanding associations with Lyndon LaRouche's NCLC, if they were not in fact explicit members.  The NCLC has longstanding links with the US intelligence community.

http://www.publiceye.org/larouche/nclc2.html

Quote
In a sense LaRouche is a "Silicon Caesar" since he has risen to power through a sophisticated computerized telecommunications network which gathers political and economic intelligence and then packages it for dissemination through newsletters, magazines, special reports and consulting services. Former Reagan advisor and National Security Council senior analyst, Dr. Norman Bailey, told NBC reporter Pat Lynch the LaRouche network was "one of the best private intelligence services in the world."

Not everyone shares the view. When Henry Kissinger was told of how LaRouche operatives met with high Reagan Administration officials in the early 1980's, he told the New Republic, "If this is true, it would be outrageous, stupid, and nearly unforgivable." Dennis King, co-author of the New Republic article which examined LaRouche's influence in scientific and intelligence circles, says during the first Reagan term LaRouche aides managed to gain "access to an alarming array of influential persons in government, law enforcement, scientific research and private industry." These ties form the basis of the LaRouche "CIA defense" against the charges he conspired to obstruct justice. LaRouche claims he believed his security aide Roy Frankhauser, a former Ku Klux Klan leader and government law enforcement informant, was a covert conduit to the CIA.

John Rees, an ultra-conservative whose Information Digest newsletter reports on political extremes on the left and right, says he "believes the New Republic story that LaRouche staffers had access to a lot of people." But he points out, "If you have all the electronic resources and information-gathering staff that LaRouche possesses you are bound to come up with occasional gems, that's what most people were interested in, not the LaRouche philosophy." Both King and Rees feel the Reagan Administration consciously began distancing itself from contacts with the LaRouche network following the New Republic and NBC stories.

Russ Bellant, a long-time LaRouche watcher from Detroit, notes that in the mid-1970's LaRouche simultaneously turned to the right and tried to link up with more respectable groups, including, for a brief period, several state Republican Party organizations. "Some tactical political alliances with various right-wing groups were made on the basis of LaRouche's scurrilous disruption campaigns against mutual enemies, especially liberal Democrats," says Bellant. In fact, LaRouche has consistently targeted the American left, and done so with material and moral support from small but significant elements in law enforcement, the Republican Party and the American far right. There is also evidence to suggest that the LaRouche organization maintained a cozy relationship with certain elements in U.S. and foreign intelligence, military and police agencies.

Its not hard to do the math.

I love Lyndon LaRouche, and his political cult...
You know, I actually met one of them before I realised what they were.
Man the dude was pushy, and used a lot of "big words" to make me feel like an idiot.
He wanted me to sign up and shit, but I said I'd just read one of their papers and get back to them.

Then I looked them up and was like WTF LOL I *gotta* fuck with these dudes.

I think it was Cain who posted a brilliant discussion amongst the politician-guys about how they were planning 9/11 [or he quoted it from somewhere, I forgot]

Matt Taibbi is pretty much the true heir to reporters like H. L. Mencken (he gets the Hunter S Thompson comparison all the time, but I know he's trying to be the modern day Sage of Baltimore)

My problem is that all the truther's conclusions seem to come down to an insurance money scam, don't they? 

wut about the missing gold and the enron records?
i always thought it was BS till i saw  "who killed John O'Neill?"
you might better remember him better as the idiot who lost his briefcase full of classifed papers at a bar

and dont even get me started on that crosshair monument at the pentagon, FOX's lone gunmen pilot,
mysterious truckbomb stopped at a bridge checkpoint or the 3 j00 filmmakers arrested for cheering


Quote
blamed the feds for shooting that plane down so I see no reason for that particular cover-up.
depends if it was an order from higher up or someone knowing something is wrong and taking steps to counter it.
able danger or able warrior?

Quote
LaRouche
i think the only thing hes been right about was the great crash was going to start 2007
him and jones are probally apart of project mockingbird aka forced media influence

Quote
Dick Cheney Conspiracy
TL;dr
did they at least talk about that guy that testified before congress that he was in the bunker, and heard the plane is x miles out.
DO THE ORDERS STILL STAND?

Look, asshole:  Your 'incomprehensible' act, your word-salad, your pinealism...It BORES ME.  I've been incomprehensible for so long, I TEACH IT TO MBA CANDIDATES.  So if you simply MUST talk about your pineal gland or happy children dancing in the wildflowers, go talk to Roger, because he digs that kind of shit

Thompson stated many times that Mencken was his greatest influence.

Just saying.
