Retired engineer/professor Bruce Baird just finished a 71-tweet Twitter thread voicing his suspicions that Israel was behind the September 1999 Russian apartment bombings colloquially referred to as “Russia’s 9/11”. Dr. Baird argues that the cover story—”radical Muslims used a vehicle bomb that magically blew a huge crater in the ground”—fits a pattern of Mossad mini-nuke... Listen

E. Michael Jones says if someone sets off a nuke, it will be the US, not the Russians
Dr. E. Michael Jones issued a disturbing warning on this week’s False Flag Weekly News: Jones’ warning comes amid signs that the US leadership is actively considering nuclear war.

And what's behind the unending parade of acts of self-destructive imperial hubris?
After “parties not-so-unknown” bombed the Nordstream gas pipeline, Anthony Blinken celebrated the “tremendous opportunity.” He assumed the whole Nordstream operation was out of commission. That would have given US producers the chance to make billions of dollars robbing Europe blind selling overpriced gas. But Blinken may have celebrated too soon. According to Bloomberg News: An...

Nordstream Attack Was #4 on Wednesday's WAPO List of Top News Stories
The timing was certainly curious. Just as Hurricane Ian, one of the worst ever to make landfall in the US, was poised to slam into Florida, dominating news headlines, parties (not so) unknown blew up the Nordstream pipelines, sending the biggest ever burst of methane, the most potent climate change gas, into the atmosphere, and...

Out of the mouths of babes and propagandists...
One hour ago as I write this, The New York Times published a big front-page story that begins: My first reaction: Yowza! Man bites dog! NYT tells truth! MSM is stealing our stuff! I’d better invite this NYT journalist, Steven Lee Myers, as a guest commentator on False Flag Weekly News! Then I read the... Read More
Gerald Sussman‘s new article “Russia-Ukraine Conflict: The Propaganda War,” like Zafar Bangash’s article on Pakistan, traces a current catastrophe to its post-WWII-era origins. As in the case of Pakistan, the Western bankster cartel has had a hand in destabilizing Ukraine for more than 70 years. In both cases the banksters and their CIA hired guns... Listen
In The Grand Chessboard, Zbigniew Brzezinski speculated about the American unipolar hegemon’s ultimate geostrategic nightmare: “a new ‘antihegemonic’ coalition, formed around the three powers with the greatest geopolitical stake in reducing America’s primacy in Eurasia.” Those three powers, of course, are Russia, China, and Iran. Such a development, Brzezinski observed, would “bring together the world’s... Read More
Retired USG analyst and celebrated Challenger disaster whistleblower Richard Cook discusses his new 46,000-word article “The US, the Ukraine Disaster, and the Future—The Long View.” Cook fills in the context that’s missing from MSM accounts, concludes that the neocon war party is firmly in control of US foreign policy, and argues that we need a...

I have somehow managed to annoy free speech hero Jeremy Rothe-Kushel, who writes: “While I still feel kismet with you as a human, and maybe because of that, in terms of the responsibilities of what I had felt we both held as colleagues towards truthful public speech, this seems like beyond disagreement to me, and...

Sterling Harwood says Biden is a peacenik and a soothsayer
Watch my debate with philosophy professor and retired attorney Sterling Harwood on False Flag Weekly News Sterling Harwood puts an innocent spin on Biden’s assertion that a “second pandemic” is coming.

Richard Cook, the Challenger disaster whistleblower, asks: “Who are the Neocons and what are they trying to do with respect to the Ukraine war? Why are they trying to use the US, UK, and NATO/EU to destroy Russia? How are Biden, Johnson, Scholz, van der Leyen etc. their instruments? Is Zionism part of it? These... Listen

Bill Clinton’s 1992 campaign defeated incumbent president George HW Bush with the help of Ross Perot and an unrelenting focus on the be-all end-all of presidential campaigns: “It’s the economy, stupid.” Clinton’s slogan pithily summarized the accumulated wisdom of more than two centuries of presidential politics: Voters identify the incumbent president and incumbent party with...

Germans impervious to irony?
Elon Musk, that self-described free speech absolutist, apparently hasn't succeeded in forcing Twitter to recognize the internationally-recognized human right of freedom of expression. At least not in Germany. Twitter sent me an email last night explaining that my tweet "Uncle Adolf stands with Ukraine, how about you?" is illegal in Germany. How can that be?... Read More

If at first your false flag doesn't succeed, what do you? You try another false flag. The Armageddonite wing of the War Party wants a NATO no-fly zone over Ukraine.

In today's Orwellian America, "war is peace, freedom is slavery, and ignorance is strength"—or so the mainstream media tell us.
