Ron Unz of the Unz Review discusses his new articles “Alex Jones, Cass Sunstein, and ‘Cognitive Infiltration’” and “Twitter Cancels Russia Over Covid Biowarfare Accusations.”

Are true conspiracy theories (9/11 was a neocon-Zionist false flag, COVID emerged from a US bio-attack on Wuhan and Qom, Podesta’s Wikileaked emails appear to contain references to elite pedophilia) obscured by the deliberate promulgation of false ones? Was the idea that “nobody died at Sandy Hook,” and the whole “crisis actor” meme, generated by those whose job is to “disable the purveyors of conspiracy theories” by “cognitively infiltrating conspiracy movements” in such a way as to spread “beneficial cognitive diversity”? And has the COVID skepticism movement likewise been manipulated to obscure the crucial issue of the pandemic’s likely origin in a US bio-attack on China and Iran?

Ron Unz is the author of several new books on conspiracy theories, World War II, and other controversial issues.

    Who is the arbitor of which theories are “true” and which are false? Ron, who seems to believe the experimental GMJabs are designed to benefit the billions forced and /or coherced into accepting them?

    Sadly, Ron himself is not interested in researching those apparently “false theories” (Sandy Hook, the Boston bombing, etc) to discover if they are true or false, or what is true and what is false, thus rendering his judgement in such matters worthless.

    And whilst I agree with him about the “how” of 9.11, including his take on the Judy Wood splintering of the whole 9.11 truth movement, I came to my conclusions having looked at and evaluated the issues for myself.

    How many times can one man admit that he “never really investigated” an incident whilst dismissing out of hand the findings of those who did?

    To you, Ron, Pizzagate was ridiculous until mention of it was made in the NYT. Same goes for the Epstien paedophile blackmail scandle. Yet, when you did investigate, once they gained “respectability” via mention in your morning papers, you found them to be credible.

    Your main concern seems to be with “public perceptions” rather than actual facts, which is understandable, but unhelpful. – If I were to suggest that there is a war being fought against humanity, that the Club of Rome had designated “humanity” to be the primary target back in the mid 60’s, in order for the “elites” to maintain their power during peacetime, I have no doubt that you would find such allegations to be ridiculous. But actual research would lead to a different conclusion: One which may well cause you to question the real reason for the biowarfare attack “on China”, and the real purpose of the GMJabs.

    Klause Schwab’s “great reset” seems ridiculous to you, yet all of the evidence has been published by him, under his own name.

    So, is the criteria by which you judge the truthfulness or validity of any given theory how/if it is covered by the mainstreem, and thereby percieved by the public? If so, as much as I admire the work you have done on those topics you chose to give credence to, I’m afraid, ultimately, you are a lost cause. Because the mainstreem is a wholy captured space. It cannot be trusted. At all. No matter how much “public credibility” it bestows.

    With very best wishes,

  2. Thank you for learning and sharing the best truth you can. We do need to realize that “our” legacy mainstream media and “our” Congress members have promoted much spin, lies and omissions of important truths for well over 100 years now. How do we tell who the psyop scammers are? Easy. These people play dumb about psyop scams on us and others and then tell you and your family what to think. Not all truth advocates have figured out the same psyops yet but here’s some of my research since 2007:

  3. Cognitive Infiltration

    An Obama Appointee’s Plan to Undermine the 9/11 Conspiracy Theory

    Former Chicago and Harvard law professor Cass Sunstein, who in 2009 was appointed by President Barack Obama to direct an important executive branch office, had in 2008 co-authored an article containing a plan for the government to prevent the spread of anti-government “conspiracy theories,” in which he advocated the use of anonymous government agents to engage in “cognitive infiltration” of these groups in order to break them up. In his new book, Griffin focuses on the fact that Sunstein’s primary target is the conspiracy theory advocated by the 9/11 Truth Movement. Examining Sunstein’s charge that this theory is both “harmful” and “demonstrably false,” Griffin uses both satire and overwhelming evidence to show that this twofold charge applies instead to what Sunstein calls “the true conspiracy theory” about 9/11ùnamely, the “theory that al-Qaeda was responsible for 9/11.”

    A good description of character.
    Sad to say I agree.
    The jab is more or less poisonus.
    And now the WHO has weaponized the pandemic definition even more!

  5. If the US government spent money to discredit and infiltrate the 911 truth movement, it tells us that they (the government) felt that the “official” stories were on shaky ground. As for the “incident” that Alex Jones was sued for denying, I don’t know whether or not it was faked or not, but in light of all the lies the government and media have told us over the years, it wouldn’t surprise me. Piper was a great author and reporter and I’m sure the government considered him to be a number one threat. His death at age 54 was very suspicious, much like the premature death of Breitbart. A lot of people who are troublesome to the government seem to die of “heart related issues” at rather young ages.

  6. Listening to Ron Unz’ comments puts me in mind of the cartoonish near-sighted Mr. Magoo.

    How dare this boob slander the sainted Judy Wood.

    1. Judy Wood was the first to point out the 9/11 towers collapsed at free fall speed. Does Unz even understand what this means?

    2. Arguing from photo evidence Judy Woods asked what could have toasted the cars in the vicinity of tower collapse. What is the Unz explanation?

    3. Arguing from the lack of debris on the ground, engineering Ph.d Wood asks what turned the building to dust that blew away in the wind. What is Unz’ theory?

    4. Judy Wood filed a Qui Tam lawsuit against NIST alleging fraud while AE911 led by Architect
    Richard Pottedplant played with themselves.

    5. If Unz thinks someone died at Sandy Hook, then let him say who and prove it.

  7. Unz continually makes arguments that are based on his internal mental world, along the lines of “I find that very unlikely” or “very surprising” or “I don’t find that believable”. So, along those lines, he’ll argue that all the victims of terrorist incidents must be real people because he just finds the concept of staged incidents with “crisis actors” just so hard to believe.

    If he can’t conceive of something being true, therefore it is not. For Unz, that is a cogent argument. One could visualize Unz as a medieval scholar (or at some point in time well before the invention of the microsocope obviously) saying that micro-organisms do not exist because he simply cannot conceive of such a thing!

    And, for Unz, there are no crisis actors because he cannot conceive of such a thing.

    Essentially, Unz continually argues that the real world, a.k.a. objective reality, is somehow constrained by the limitations of his own mind.

    It’s not.

    -Thank you for learning and sharing the best truth you can.-
    – Not all truth advocates have figured out the same psyops yet but here’s some of my research since 2007-

    Agree, guess that is what we all do in the end, wherever we end up (temporarily or permanently) on the opinion/topics researched scale.
    And such opinions maybe really being the most unimportant aspect of the whole thing, simply sharing personal research data the most important..?

    Interesting links.

    Since I have lately looked more deeply into those same topics myself, would interest me to hear :

    Historical happenings, especially conflicts seem to have a certain “lifespan” in the public mind (if there is such a thing), during which it seems to be simply impossible to have a detached sober dialogue/examination of it (in the public arena).

    Are we at its end regarding WW2 yet?
    Personally am unsure must say, somehow seems that we are slowly getting there regarding WW1 maybe, but perhaps no 2 is still (a generation/ 50 years/ 100 years…? ) in the future?

    You see any change toward a growing will to revise except for at the fringes of society at this point?

  9. Ron Unz is the author of several new books on conspiracy theories, World War II, and other controversial issues.

    Great to see those essays in paperback.

    But I am -positively-baffled how it is possible for Ron to sell them on Amazon??
    Has the ADL&Co not seen/read them yet?

    I presume the reason for his American Pravda essays on Holocaust Denial being excluded from the paperbook-series is that those of course would immediately cause a ban there(?)
    But even without them, still many chapters in “Understanding WW2” –
    most of all probably “The black legend of Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany”-
    as far as I know fall definitely under the categories that Amazon, B&N etc…have banned from their sites since 2017/18(as all books from MS King, M Walsh etc….attest to f.ex..).

    Can it really be that he is getting away with this?

    Hard to say. But maybe you should order them while they’re still available, and buy copies for your friends as well!
