by Don Fox, Ian Greenhalgh and Jim Fetzer
Of all the positions that have been taken about 9/11, which range from the “official” collapse theory to the use of nanothermite to conventional explosives to DEWs, nukes mini or large, from a purely philosophical point of view, perhaps the most extreme is that adopted by Simon Shack (SS) and his followers, including onebornfree (obf), who claim that all the footage of the destruction sequence in New York City is fake and unreliable.
This is striking because that footage has virtually universally been regarded as some of the most important evidence about what actually happened there on 9/11.
Since the Twin Towers are shown blowing apart in every direction from the top down, for example, while being converted into millions of cubic yards of very fine dust, it serves as the foundation for one line of argument that demonstrated the “official” account cannot possibly be true, since the Twin Towers are not undergoing any kind of collapse.
If all of the videos had been faked, one might have expected they would show the towers collapsing, not blowing apart in every direction. And this is not the most bizarre of their positions.
Here is a sample of the kinds of visual studies that support the conversion of the towers into dust:
Simon Shack and onebornfree, alas, have never offered the least indication of what they think we should have seen, had we had access to authentic video footage. But there are many other kinds of evidence which goes far beyond the visual evidence they fixate upon:
(1) They were standing, then they were gone.
(2) It happened in a very brief period of time.
(3) Millions of cubic yards of dust emerged.
(4) They were destroyed below ground level.
(5) We have the so-called “toasted cars”
(6) And massive parts blown great distances
(7) There were videos and there were photos.
(8) There were many witnesses observing.
(9) We have cancer rates among responders.
(10) We have USGS dust samples.
(11) We have seismic readings.
(12) We have acoustical recordings.
The evidence derived from these sources can be used to sort out various alternative possibilities:
(h1) natural causes (earthquake, tornado,…)
(h2) collapse due to plane crashes and fires.
(h3) classic controlled demolitions (a pair).
(h4) non-conventional mode of destruction;
(h4a) lasers, masers or plasmoids;
(h4b) directed energy weaponry;
(h4c) nukes (large/small/micro/mini/)
So far the evidence most strongly supports (h4c), which we have explained repeatedly in a series of articles beginning with “9/11 Truth will out: The Vancouver Hearings II”. Clare Kuehn has offered a list of oddities that would almost certainly not have been present had all of the videos been faked or under control:
While Clues agrees that SS and obf have blundered on the destruction footage, she accents that the Clues andLetsRoll forums have exposed media control and some forms of fakery, for lack of a better term, including evidence of layering to conceal parts of images (for adding planes and in long shots) and the exensive interpolation of fake victims–including one head on up to eight different bodies.
The SS/obf Gambit
SS and obf do not discuss the evidence apart from the video footage and never address the question of why we cannot possibly know what happened on the basis of the totality of the evidence available for study. Instead, in response to the observation that the video footage is taken from many locations and perspectives, some from the air and some from across the Hudson River, where it all “hangs together” in the right way, they go on the attack, as in this post from obf attacking Jim Fetzer for making this argument:
1] there is never any need or requirement for the investigating “scientist” to ever closely scrutinize/compare even one of the 911 videos or photos, both with other 911 photos/videos, nor with pre-911 imagery, before accepting those videos/photos as indisputably genuine evidence.
2] there is never any need/requirement for the investigating “scientist” to ever try to authenticate even one of the alleged authors of any of the videos/photos before accepting their videos/photos as indisputably genuine evidence.
3] there is never any need/requirement for the investigating “scientist” to ever do extensive background checks on any/all alleged eyewitnesses and their out of court, not under oath testimony before accepting their testimony as indisputably genuine evidence.
The investigating “scientist” is perfectly free to claim anything that he/she feels is real is in fact real evidence, based on nothing more than personal bias/whim.
If, dear reader, any of the above 3 points even remotely apply within the general world of scientific research, [i.e. outside of 911 research] , and Mr Fetzer’s “scientific methodology” [ i.e. “if it looks good without closely checking/cross-checking then its genuine”], is simply par for the course, then I would suggest that the whole field of scientific research is in very, very deep trouble.
But this is a grossly exaggerated distortion of Jim’s actual position that is easier to attack, which makes it a nice example of the straw man fallacy. 1], 2] and 3] would appropriate if there were good reasons to doubt the photographic and video record. We know that to be the true in the case of the plane videos–and we have taken them apart. But obf and SS have really not given us any good reasons to doubt that the voluminous record of destruction videos and photos are fake.
There are too many from too many directions of enormous variation in quality, including of high definition, to take their claims seriously. At one point I looked at the wavy clouds of smoke with their repetition and changes in the background and color and tint variations, all of which appear to be post-production in messing with those photos and films–not necessarily for disinformational purposes, but because of multiple cases of copying and other sources of minor distortions.
They made valuable contributions exposing fakery in the airplane footage, but overgeneralized to conclude that all of the video footage had to be fake. So instead of contributing to SOLVING THE PROBLEM of what actually happened in New York City on 9/11, THEY DECLARE THE PROBLEM TO BE UNSOLVABLE. Here is some of the most fascinating footage that is incompatible with standard explosives or with any kind of collapse theory:
That is completely unscientific, where ofb’s complete lack of understanding of scientific method is no where more manifest than in his disregard for the rest of the evidence, which we enumerated as (1) through (12) above. Indeed, it is a basic principle of scientific reasoning that it be based upon all the evidence available. Failing to do so entails the commission of the fallacy of special pleading, which is common with politicians, editorial writers and used-car salesmen. That is where he stands.
That SS and obf even deny the existence of nuclear weapons tells me we are not dealing simply with persons of diminished capacity for serious research but demonstrable fakes and frauds. And while Clare will continue to treat them with kindness, it has become all too clear that they are shilling for Israel by doing their best to conceal that the towers were nukes and they must have been Israeli.
The US nuclear arsenal is under very tight but not perfect control, while Israeli nukes are not. Israel has not even admitted that it has a vast stockpile of nuclear, biological and chemical weapons–though it is common knowledge in the Middle East and among experts. SS and obf are using the pretense of science to attack those who are exposing the truth about 9/11, as Don Fox and Ian Greenhalgh explain in the study that follows.
By Don Fox and Ian Greenhalgh
“The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.” – Vladimir Lenin
Simon Shack, hoi.polloi, Ab Irato, El Buggo and Onebornfree are the latest disinfo crew to attempt to conceal the nuclear demolition of the World Trade Center buildings on 9/11 by any and all means necessary. Preceding them have been such luminaries of the “Truth Movement” as Steve Jones, Richard Gage, Christopher Bollyn, Mark Bilk, Judy Wood, Andrew Johnson, Thomas Potter, Emmanuel Goldstein, S. Tiller and Pete Santilli, among others.
A lot of effort has gone into constructing various ruses to fool the public. The Official Conspiracy Theory posits that 19 Islamic hijackers wielding box cutters were responsible for all of the destruction. The woefulness of that theory became readily apparent soon after 9/11 and it gave rise to a number of alternative theories.
The first to gain prominence was the pyrotechnic nanothermite promoted by Jones, Gage, Bilk and Bollyn among others. Alas non-explosive nanothermite has no explanatory power for what happened to the WTC buildings as has been previously documented. As the inadequacy of the nanothermite theory became apparent, Judy Wood’s directed energy weapon (DEW) non-theory started to gain prominence.
While Dr. Wood claims not to have a theory, it states plainly on the cover of her book Where Did the Towers Go?, “Evidence of Directed Free-energy Technology on 9/11″. A key element of Wood’s position is that no bombs (nuclear or conventional) were used on 9/11. Dr. Wood’s non-theory runs out of steam once you realize that the WTC buildings exploded, high temperatures persisted at the WTC site for six months after 9/11, and that evidence for fission and fusion abound at Ground Zero.
However, the indefensibility of the Judy Wood Cult’s non-theory pales in comparison to the utterly ludicrous rantings of the September Clues forum. Simon Shack and others have constructed an utterly bizarre 9/11 mythology which would have you believe that the Twin Towers were completely vacant after the 1993 bombing, that nobody died on 9/11 and that the entire event was a Hollywood-style production, where the actual destruction of the WTC buildings was obscured by military smoke-machines.
Completely Bizarre Scenario
According to posts on their forum, the Twin Towers were destroyed from the bottom up by conventional explosive charges. Nobody saw this as the television audience was shown fabricated movie footage prepared in advance of the event. A top-down, near free fall “collapse” of the Twin Towers is impossible to their minds, which means any and all videos and pictures depicting such occurrence have to be fake.
I have never seen a witness report the events as having happened that way. All of the witness reports I have read depict the events as having happened as the available videos and pictures show it. There is a huge gap between the September Clues version of 9/11 and the version that the rest of the world accepts. Here is a summation of the September Clues Forum’s positions:
It is fair to say the September Clues research has established these 4 main points:
1- The 9/11 imagery was nothing but a Hollywood-style film production, complete with actors in the role of ‘eye-witnesses’ or ‘firefighters’, staged ‘running crowds’, 3D-compositing and special cinematic effects. The ’9/11 movie’ was split into a number of short clips and sold to the TV audience as ‘newscasts’. The few clips featuring ‘airplanes’ (or dull silhouettes thereof) were computer-generated images – all of which in stark conflict with each other, as now comprehensively demonstrated in every imaginable manner, angle and method.
2- No commercial airliners were hijacked or – much less – crashed into the WTC towers, the Pentagon or the Shanksville field. No valid/verifiable records exist for : their airport logs/schedules, their numbered parts, their alleged passengers. Their reported speeds at near sea-level as well as the absurd visuals of their total, effortless disappearance into the WTC façades defy the laws of mechanics and physics – and the absence of visible wake vortexes in the WTC impact imagery also defies the laws of aerodynamics.
3- The World Trade Center Complex (9 buildings in all) were demolished with powerful explosives. No image-analyses of the tower collapses can help determine just what type of explosives were employed – since the videos are 3D animations and do not represent the real-life events. In reality, as they collapsed, the WTC complex was most likely enveloped by military-grade smoke obscurants. No real/private imagery exists of the morning’s events – ‘thanks’ to electromagnetic countermeasures.
4- No “3000″ people were trapped in the top floors/nor perished in the WTC towers. Only one thing was more important to the perps than avoiding a mass murder of 3000 US citizens : to sell the notion that “bogeyman Bin Laden” killed 3000 US citizens. We have renamed the ‘victims’ of these psy-operations “VICSIMS” (SIMulated VICtims). In fact, our research has seen the same pattern emerge in all the so-called “Al-Qaeda Terror Attacks” around the world (LONDON 7/7, MADRID 11, BALI, MUMBAI, etc…). In all logic, the very last aggravation the plotters behind these false-flag operations wish to have, are scores of real families hounding them forever with real questions and real class actions. Hence: NO real terror victims = Logical PsyOp rationale.
9/11 is but a giant – and still ongoing – money-making scam. It rotates around the most well-funded and profitable hoax of modern history. Everyone involved in the scheme is reaping a sizable return from their ‘investment bond’ which, naturally, has “SILENCE” printed all over it. For anyone to ‘speak out’ would be both ruinous and suicidal – a most distasteful option. To be sure, ‘suicidal heroics’ only exist in journalistic fairy-tales such as the outlandish news media’s narrative of 9/11 and its “nineteen religious fanatics”. The skeptics objecting that “too many people would have had to be in on this” fail to account for the most fundamental aspect of human nature: our survival instinct.
The master plan of 9/11 was to demolish the redundant, asbestos-filled WTC complex in Lower Manhattan – 9 buildings in all. The area would naturally be evacuated (as for all such demolitions) in order to prevent a slaughterhouse of dreadful proportions – not a good idea at all. To be sure, this was no mass murder scheme – just a formidable opportunity for massive financial gains and military propaganda. The military (and its various intelligence affiliates) would manage the ground logistics, such as securing the area, raising smokescreens to hide the proceedings from public view, and last but not least, electromagnetic countermeasures to keep any private cameras from filming the mayhem. The WTC complex was thus ‘safely’ destroyed in bright daylight. It was a magician’s trick, pulled off by sleight of hand to fool the few (the NY onlookers) – and with computer graphics to fool the world (the TV viewers).
Nobody died? The real destruction of the WTC buildings was somehow hidden from view? So what gives? Either September Clues knows something that the rest of us do not or they are completely out to lunch.
A cursory examination of their forum leads one to believe that the later has a much higher probability of being true than the former. For instance there is an entire thread devoted to proving that satellites are fake. During an interview with Ab Irato on 28 December 2013, for example, Simon Shack denies Earth-orbiting satellites exist:
They appear to be denying the existence of satellites as satellites can be used to prove the Earth is round.Cartesian has an excellent post in the Flat Earth Discussion Boards:
Breaking News: Satellites DO Exist
Flat Earthers don’t believe in satellites as the existence of satellites can be used to disprove that the earth is flat. Satellites can take pictures of a round earth and Flat Earthers don’t like to see them. For Flat Earthers, those pictures are fabricated. Geostationary satellites are even worse. In order for an object to be geostationary, the object must orbit around the earth at the same angular velocity as earth’s rotation and at a certain altitude above the equator such that the centrifugal force due to the orbital movement is equal to the gravitational force.
An object cannot orbit a flat earth while remaining stationary above it. Furthermore, geostationary orbit is at 22,000 miles from earth, way above the Flat Earth sun. So satellite existence simply doesn’t fit into Flat Earth model.
Flat Earthers say GPS works based on LORAN (LOng RAnge Navigation), a terrestrial radio navigation system. Radio can travel long distance in the Flat Earth model because the earth is flat. Flat Earthers also say that satellite TV works based on transmission towers. Dishes don’t get signal from a geostationary satellite but rather from a very tall tower somewhere.
But how tall can these towers be? And where are they exactly located? Before answering my questions, I will show you some pictures taken in some places near the equator for you to ponder.
Everyone who lives where I come from is used to this kind of scenery. We all believe that satellites do exist since birth because the proof is everywhere around us. So yes we are all born Round Earthers.
The Flat Earth Model
Modern hypotheses supporting a flat Earth originated with English inventor Samuel Rowbotham (1816–1884). Based on his incorrect interpretation of experiments on the Bedford Level, Rowbotham published a 16-page pamphlet, called “Zetetic Astronomy”, which he later expanded into a 430-page book, Earth Not a Globe, expounding his views. According to Rowbotham’s system, the earth is a flat disc centered at the North Pole and bounded along its southern edge by a wall of ice (Antarctica), with the sun and moon 3,000 miles (4,800 km) and the “cosmos” 3,100 miles (5,000 km) above earth. He also published a leaflet entitled “The inconsistency of Modern Astronomy and its Opposition to the Scriptures!!” which argued that the “Bible, alongside our senses, supported the idea that the earth was flat and immovable and this essential truth should not be set aside for a system based solely on human conjecture.”
One of the many problems with the Flat Earth Model is the Earth rotates on its axis and has a Northern and Southern Hemisphere. The Earth tilts on its axis and this is what gives us the four different seasons. How does a Flat Earth person account for the four seasons? Why do hurricanes spin counter-clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere and typhoons spin clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere?
This Just In: Earth is ROUND
The Earth isn’t flat, that’s for sure. And if you look at a photograph, the Earth really looks round. But how round is it?
The actual shape of the Earth is actually an oblate spheroid – a sphere with a bulge around the equator. The Earth is bulged at its equator because it’s rapidly rotating on its axis. The centripetal force of the rotation causes the regions at the equator to bulge outward. And it actually makes a pretty big difference. The diameter of the Earth, measured across the equator is 43 km more than when you measure the diameter of the Earth from pole to pole.
This bulge has some interesting implications. For example, it means that the point on Earth furthest from the center isn’t actually Mount Everest, but Mount Chimborazo in Ecuador. Only because Chimborazo is closer to the Earth’s equator.
Human Remains Found at Ground Zero
If nobody died at Ground Zero on 9/11 then why were human remains found?
Jim Riches pulled his firefighter son’s mangled body out of the rubble at the World Trade Center, but the phone calls still filtered in years afterward. The city kept finding more pieces of his son.
“They’ll call you and they’ll tell you, ‘We found a shin bone,’” said Riches, a retired deputy fire chief. “Or: ‘We found an arm bone.’ We held them all together and then we put them in the cemetery.”
Those are the phone calls both dreaded and hoped for among the families of Sept. 11 victims. And as investigators began sifting through newly uncovered debris from the World Trade Center this week for the first time in three years, those anxieties were renewed more than a decade after the attacks.
But there was also hope that more victims might yet be identified after tens of millions have been spent on the painstaking identification process. Two potential human remains were recovered on Monday, according to the medical examiner.
“We would like to see the other 40 percent of the families who have never recovered anything to at least someday have a piece of their loved one,” Riches said. “That they can go to a cemetery and pray.”
About 60 truckloads of debris that could contain tiny fragments of bone or tissue were unearthed by construction crews that have been working on the new World Trade Center in recent years. That material is now being transported to a park built on top of the former Fresh Kills landfill on Staten Island, where investigators will attempt to find any possible remains during the next 10 weeks, the city said. That’s the material the two potential human remains were found in.
Some 2,750 people died at the World Trade Center in the 2001 terrorist attacks, but only 1,634 people have been identified.
“We have been monitoring the World Trade Center site over time and monitoring the construction,” said Ellen Borakove, a spokeswoman for the medical examiner’s office. “And if they see any material that could possibly contain human remains, we collect that material.”
About 9,000 human remains recovered from the ruins of the World Trade Center remain unidentified because they are too degraded to match victims by DNA identification. The remains are stored at an undisclosed location monitored by the medical examiner’s office and will eventually be transferred to a subterranean chamber at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum.
If nobody died why was so much money paid out to the families?
Paying Off the Victims: September 11th Victim Compensation Fund
Just eleven days after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Congress created the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund. It was a unique, unprecedented commitment to compensate families who lost a loved one on 9/11 and survivors who were physically injured. In its haste, Congress provided very few guidelines as to how the funds should be distributed and set no limit on the size of awards. Instead, it gave a single individual nearly unlimited discretion to manage the program.
Attorney General John Ashcroft appointed Kenneth Feinberg to administer the fund, handing him sole responsibility for calculating the dollar value of over 5,500 dead and injured in the worst peacetime disaster in U.S. History. In this he was supported by some 30 lawyers from his law firm and his wife, Diane “Dede” Shaff Feinberg.
Kenneth Feinberg: The Zionist Hush Money Specialist
Kenneth Feinberg is a Jewish lawyer known for wearing expensive Brioni suits, smoking Cuban cigars and his love of opera. He has become (in)famous for his handling of many high-profile litigations. A partial list of cases in which Feinberg has handled settlement payments:
* Penn. State sex abuse scandal involving Jewish football coach Jerry Sandusky
* Agent Orange product liability – class action by 250,000 Vietnam veterans
* Abraham Zapruder JFK film – one of three arbitrators who determined the fair market value of the film
* Holocaust slave labor litigation – one of two arbitrators
* Aurora, CT theatre shootings
* Sandy Hook school shootings
* Virginia Tech. mass shooting – administered the Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund
* Boston Marathon bombing
* Hurricane Katrina
* BP Gulf Oil Spill
With a resume like that, it would appear that Kenneth Feinberg is the man the Zionists turn to whenever they need to cover something up and distribute hush money in the form of compensation.
For three years working pro bono as head of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund, Feinberg reached out to all who qualified to file a claim, evaluated applications, determined appropriate compensation and distributed awards. Feinberg spent almost all of his time meeting with the 9/11 families, convincing them of the generosity and compassion of the program and calculating appropriate awards for each and every claim. He personally took part in most of the 1,500 hearings with survivors and victims’ families and his staff of 200 spent 33 months investigating claims and deciding benefits. Feinberg told ABC News on Dec. 19, 2003:
“It’s a brutal, sort of cold thing to do. Anybody who looks at this program and expects that by cutting a U.S. Treasury check you are going to make 9/11 families happy is vastly misunderstanding what’s going on with this program.”
When the program was launched, many families criticized it as a brazen, tight-fisted attempt to protect the airlines from lawsuits. The Fund was also attacked as attempting to put insulting dollar values on the lives of lost loved ones. Those who participated in the Fund were required to waive their right to sue the airlines involved in the attacks, as well as other potentially responsible entities including the Israeli airport security firm Huntleigh USA/ICTS. By taking the compensation, the families waived their right to demand a real investigation into 9/11.
More than 98 percent of the families accepted the money from the Feinberg-managed fund. The amounts of the payments and the amounts paid to Diane Feinberg and the 30 lawyers are not known. The American people deserve to know how the funds were used and who got paid.
Estimates put the total settlement amount at less than $3.5 billion total for all the victims. Due to the lack of oversight, it’s anyone’s guess where the rest of the tax dollars have gone. Ellen Mariani, a brave and fiery widow and 9/11 plaintiff, included Feinberg in her lawsuit which was eventually forcibly settled. Feinberg’s inclusion in the suit was partially related to his success in bribing Mariani’s attorney to try to coerce his client to accept the fund’s payout and attempt to convince her that she was clinically insane.
Feinberg’s role in covering up the truth about 9/11 is connected to his relationship to the state of Israel. A year after the settlement of the 9/11 claims he went to Israel at the behest of the Sharon government to work on compensating the 8,000 settlers they were trying to force out of Gaza. Kenneth Feinberg wasn’t working pro bono on the 9/11 victims fund out of compassion for the victims of 9/11, or for America. He was doing it to serve Israel and the murderous Mossad.
Diane ‘Dede’ Shaff Feinberg and the Jewish Agency
Diane and Kenneth Feinberg were co-chairmen of the recent General Assembly of the Jewish Federation, which hosted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak, two prime suspects in the Israeli terrorism of 9/11.
Diane is also an executive member of the United Israel Appeal and the Jewish Federation of Washington. She also happens to be a member of the Board of Governors of the Jewish Agency – the parent organization of the Mossad.
To understand why American Jews are willing to commit and cover-up serious crimes, even treason, on behalf of the state of Israel one needs to understand that most religious Jews in America are first obliged to serve Israel – a foreign state. American Jews are, for this reason, conflicted. Their religion obliges them to make “aliya” and live in Israel but most would prefer to stay in the United States. Hundreds of thousands of Israelis have chosen to leave “the Jewish state” and now live in the United States. While they are unwilling to leave the comfort of the United States and immigrate to Israel (aliya), most religious Jews in the United States feel strongly compelled to support and defend the state of Israel.
To fulfill their obligation to the state of Israel, Zionist Jews in America have created hundreds of organizations to raise funds and support for the Zionist state in Palestine. These organizations are consolidated under an umbrella organization called the Jewish Agency. The Jewish Agency and the World Zionist Organization are two parts of the same Zionist enterprise that operates in the United States and around the world. The Jewish Agency was the Zionist organization that became the state of Israel in 1948 when a Jewish state was established in Palestine. The Jewish Agency, then headed by David Ben-Gurion, literally became the apparatus of the Zionist state and Ben-Gurion became the first prime minister of Israel.
The Jewish Agency, head quartered in New York City after World War II, organized and funded the Haganah, the Zionist militia in Palestine, as well as the terrorist groups known as the Irgun and LEHI (the Stern Gang). Using these groups, the Jewish Agency created the Mossad Le Aliyah Bet (the Agency for Illegal Immigration) in 1938 to smuggle illegal Jewish immigrants and weapons into Palestine. The Jewish Agency and the Mossad worked together to bring many thousands of Jews to Palestine – illegally – from Yemen, Iraq, Egypt, and Europe. The Jewish Agency was the Mossad.
The Jewish Agency and the Mossad continued to work together after the creation of the state of Israel to bring Jews to the Zionist state. The hardline Zionists who run Israel today are actually fighting a losing battle with demographics. The Arab population around them is growing quickly while many Israelis are leaving the Jewish state. The Israeli population has become more Russian, more extremist, and less Western in its outlook than at any time since the founding of the state in 1948. Ariel Sharon, the now comatose prime minister who ran Israel in 2001, dreamed of bringing one million Jews to Israel from the United States. In this effort he worked closely with the Jewish Agency.
Alvin K. Hellerstein: U.S. Judge but Zionist gatekeeper
Feinberg’s actions were crucial to removing more than 98 percent of the families from the litigation process. Kenneth Feinberg and Judge Alvin Hellerstein have waged a war of attrition against the 9/11 relatives. Of the thousands of families that could have used the courts to find justice and legal discovery for what happened on 9-11, Feinberg was successful in removing 98 percent. Of the 96 families that chose to go to court, all but one or two cases have settled out of court after enduring years of obstruction in the court of Alvin K. Hellerstein. Thanks to Feinberg and Hellerstein there may never be a trial for a single victim of 9-11.
For the 96 families who initially chose to forgo the fund in favor of a transparent trial, Sheila Birnbaum was appointed special mediator between Hellerstein and the victims’ families. Birnbaum, another dedicated Zionist lawyer at the Israeli law firm Skadden Arps, effectively railroaded these brave families and forced them all to settle. Skadden Arps introduces itself with the following on its website:
“Many of our attorneys are thoroughly familiar with the legal structure, business environment and political system of Israel, and several (including at the partner level) are Israeli-born, native Hebrew speakers who have been admitted to the bars of both Israel and New York. A number of our lawyers volunteer a significant amount of their time to Jewish and Israeli causes, including the America-Israel Friendship League, the Anti-Defamation League, the College of Management, the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, Elem, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, The Jerusalem Foundation and Miklat.”
Radical Zionist Alvin Hellerstein has controlled all 9/11 litigation. Hellerstein, Feinberg and Birnbaum were the triumvirate that formed the Zionist roadblock to any justice for the victims’ families. Hellerstein’s son, Joseph, worked for the law firm that represented ICTS, the Israeli passenger screening and security company implicated in 9/11. Hellerstein is thus guilty of a criminal conflict of interest in his prevention of a trial in any 9/11 lawsuit.
Alvin Hellerstein is tied to 9/11 directly in his role as head gatekeeper on all 9/11 claims, preventing legal discovery, wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits from trial. Judge Hellerstein is also intimately connected to other key Israeli players of the 9/11 massacre on multiple layers through his son, Joseph. Joseph Hellerstein worked for an Israeli law firm, Amit, Pollack and Matalon, which represented ICTS, the Israeli firm implicated in the attacks via passenger screening and airline security at Newark, Boston Logan, and Dulles, the departure sites of the hijacked aircraft.
ICTS is owned by two Israelis, Ezra Harel and Menachem Atzmon. Atzmon was convicted in Israel of fraud with partner and mayor of Jerusalem, Ehud Olmert. Olmert later became prime minister of Israel. Olmert incidentally also made a secret trip to meet with then mayor of NYC, Rudy Giuliani on the eve of 9/11, ostensibly to oversee their plot. He and other Israeli officials were allowed to leave the US aboard an El Al plane when all other planes were grounded on 9/11. ICTS was also implicated in the 7/7 bombings in London.
Hellerstein recently effectively blocked the last victim’s family, the Bavises, from ever having a day of trial against the government and airport security, forcing them to settle out of court after a decade of his dedicated gatekeeping. His callous quote to the 96 families of victims of 9/11 will live in infamy:
“We have to get past 9/11. Let it go. Life is beautiful. Life is short. Live out your years. Take the award.”
Both father and son Hellerstein also worked for Stroock, Stroock, and Lavan, a Rothschild funded law firm which, incidentally, represented Larry Silverstein in his bid to lease the towers. How many conflicts of interests can you count?
The Origins of “September Clues”
Around the beginning of June 2007, a new video – called “September Clues” appeared. It presented an analysis of the events as they were shown on TV on 9/11/2001. It tried to present the evidence that some of the images we were shown of the events could not have been real. The person who had produced/edited this video used the pseudonym “Social Service” and he seemed to be associated with a band of the same name.
Over the next few months “Social Service” released several updates to September clues and it finally ended up as 8 ten-minute segments and a couple of additional “epilogue” videos. Around this time, it was revealed that Social Service’s name was “Simon Shack”.
In July or August 2008, on a forum, Simon Shack made a request for some web storage space for his videos. A man called Andrew Johnson offered some of the space to Simon Shack to store his video files etc., and also purchased a domain name for Simon Shack www.septclues.com. A year later when the subscription to that web space expired, Johnson and Shack began to have a series of increasingly serious disagreements, with the bulk of the animosity emanating from the Shack side.
Who precisely is Simon Shack?
As it turns out, Simon Shack is actually a Pseudonym. Simon Shack’s real name is Simon Hytten, which he disclosed on his forum in March 2011. Simon gave this explanation for his adoption of the Shack pseudonym:
“My surname Shack was coined back in 1993 or so by a black, Colorado-born jazz musician named Fontaine Burnette. Try and contact him and ask him about it (I haven’t heard from him in many years). He asked me what Hytten meant – so I told him it means a little house/or hut. So he just quipped… “Like a shack?” – and I said yeah, a bit like a shack. That’s all there is to it. I liked it. So then, as I registered at the STIM (the Swedish Musician’s Union) I was told that my artist name would be accepted – even at legal/bureaucratic levels. So that’s how I signed in at STIM. Ever since, I have used this surname – and all music reviews/articles written about me/my band (The Social Service) as a musician, have had me as Simon Shack. It simply stuck on me – and most people now know me by that name. I certainly had no motive to change my surname back in 1993 – in order to hide from something! At the time, I had no clue whatsoever of how this crazy world is rolling!“
Early years in Sicily – disrupting Danilo Dolci’s anti-Mafia crusade
Simon Hytten was born in Stockholm, Sweden from a Norwegian father and a Swedish mother. Simon grew up in Sicily with two brothers and his parents who were part of a ‘workshop’ run by Danilo Dolci in a small town near Palermo called Partinico.
Danilo Dolci was an anti-mafia crusader and it appears that Simon’s father, Eyvind Hytten was sent to infiltrate and disrupt Dolci’s work. In 1967, Dolci held a press conference where he accused prominent members of the government, by name, of collusion with the Mafia. Sometime after this, Eyvind Hytten split from Dolci and planned to establish an institute in Palermo to train development workers. Hytten was quoted as saying:
“We did not want to be instruments for maintaining Dolci’s fame. We wanted his fame to be an instrument for our work for Sicilians. I think that we, more than Dolci, now represent the possibility of doing something for Sicily.”
However, the motives for Hytten’s work were questioned by the Swedish committee who had originally sponsored his work with Dolci; they stated in a press release:
“We deplore the manner in which Hytten has publicly taken a stand against Dolci. We will in no way participate in Hytten’s plans, but will continue to support Danilo Dolci in his tireless campaign to release Sicily from the grip of poverty and a powerful Mafia.”
The Swedish group also announced it was fully washing it hands of Hytten and sharply criticized the newspapers who had given the false impression that Hytten had become Dolci’s legitimate successor in Sicily. Sadly, Hytten’s nefarious work had its desired effect, as noted on Dolci’s Wikipedia page:
“The smears certainly succeeded in pushing Dolci out of the limelight in Italy – for the last 20 years of his life he disappeared from public view.”
So it appears that Eyvind Hytten was controlled opposition sent in to disrupt and destroy Dolci’s anti-mafia organization, sadly he succeeded. Simon Hytten tried to shift the blame onto American writer Jerre Mangione, author of the book ‘The World around Danilo Dolci’
“So what exactly do you think this former Syracuse graduate/Time Magazine/Department Of Justice employee was doing in Sicily interviewing a groundbreaking, upcoming yet “inconvenient”(for the world elite) anti-mafia activist like Danilo Dolci? Was he not there perhaps – just perhaps – to give a bad name to the whole community, and to point out/inflate the workshop’s inevitable, petty squabbles? To be sure, this is what transpires when you scour the chapters of his book”
Geneva and the Bin Ladins
Here is an audio clip in which Simon admits that he put the Bin Ladin stickers on the car:
After their work was done in Sicily, the family moved to Geneva, Switzerland where Eyvind took up employment with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
During this time in Geneva, Simon’s elder brother Mario began a career as a racing driver, he competed for 3 seasons 1982-84 in the Marlboro British Formula 3 Championship before competing in the FIA Formula 3000 Int. Championship for four seasons 1985-88. Mario didn’t have much success, winning only one race and claiming eight podium positions from over 70 starts. He had a handful of races in sports car formulae 1989-92 before retiring in 1993. Nowadays, he lives in Sweden and works as a manager and translator.
During his career, Mario was sponsored by the “Bin Ladin Group.” Apparently, Mario befriended Yeslam Bin Ladin, an entrepreneur and half-brother of Osama Bin Laden. Yeslam is a fully Westernized man, possesses a degree in Economics, speaks four languages fluently, owns several successful businesses and became a naturalized Swiss citizen in 2001.
Yeslam became interested in helping Mario in early 1986. As he was quite influential in Arab elite, the brother of Osama managed to recruit a number of sponsors of the Middle East to support Mario in Formula 3000. The main sponsor was Yeslam’s family company, the Bin Ladin Group and this can be seen from photos of Mario’s F3000 car where the Bin Ladin Group is advertised on the rear wing.
Simon tried to explain this connection on his forum:
“I must say that Mario did well for himself in finding wealthy sponsors to forward his car racing career. He was a relentless sponsorship hunter and, at some stage, got to meet Yeslam Bin Ladin in his London office. Yeslam gave him some cash to promote his construction company”
Regardless of the truth of the actual relationship, it is clear that Simon Shack aka Simon Hytten, was, for at least a few years in the 1980s, one person removed from the Bin Ladin family.
Apparently, there is little love lost today between Simon and his two elder brothers, as Simon wrote in an internet post:
“[A] few lines about my estranged brothers, Nicolai and Mario. They have inexplicably grown into two abject human beings – and I have almost no words to qualify their current behavior.”
Simon describes Nicolai and Mario as ‘two despicable creatures’ and states that “my disdain for them is immense.”
