Dear Geraldo Rivera: 9/11 Murder is NOT a Joke

This week, Geraldo Rivera was foiled in his attempt to “contain” the 9/11 movement, something exploding around the world.  A Herald Sun poll in Australia the week before, 10,000 respondents, showed 78% support for 9/11 being an “inside job.”  A reasonable estimate for Americans is likely to approach the same figure.

Fox News now “owns” 9/11 as much as they own Glen Beck.  First, Judge Napolitano “outed” the phony investigation now Geraldo Rivera has taken a strong stand on the ( Building 7 demolition issue.  If you put both shows together, they lead to the most frightening coverup in modern history and a clear evidentiary trail, one Fox News has exposed.

Why, then, is the door opened and then closed again?  Why are we “dancing around” as though 9/11 were a joke?  When we talk Building 7 and explosions, the specific issue that Geraldo Rivera and Fox News are now ready to accept as “very possible,” we are talking murder.

When the relatives of the dead from Building 7 are seen on the television commercial, they are telling us, as was done on Geraldo, that their family members died in explosions that were purposefully set.  As there is more than “probable” cause that the explosions that killed so many were purposeful and extremely criminal, real terrorism, real murder and we can easily find who is responsible, why are we “dancing around?”

When Rivera accuses demonstrators of being “nut jobs” two years ago, he is showing his own ignorance.  He believes, as he is saying now, that since qualified engineers are now doubting the official explanation, anyone demonstrating “now” is not a “not job” at all.  What the ignorant narcissist fool Rivera is missing, of course, is that when the demonstrators he attack were out there, two years ago, engineers and architects had long ago come forward, not two years ago, not five years ago.  To Rivera, there is no reality, there is no truth, until “he” learns of it.  Where in hell do we find people like this.

I keep seeing him unearthing the secret “Al Capone” bunker in Chicago.  This is the same Geraldo Rivera.


Rivera tried, during the show, to “sucker” the parent of a Building 7 murder victim into a 2 minute discussion of 9/11 as an “inside job” knowing quite well he would be able to get a quick attack in.  Rivera was outwitted as the video shows, cut off at the legs.  Why would Rivera do this?

When we say “inside job,” we mean the US government but also we mean Israel.  It was an Israeli team that was arrested filming 9/11, openly admitting they knew in advance.  Israel also admitted they knew about the 1982 Beirut bombing that killed 224 Marines.  With “dual citizens” involved in planning the “war on terror,” surrounding and advising Bush and Cheney every step of the way, it is impossible to say “inside job” without saying “Israel did it” as we hear from Dr. Alan Sabrosky and journalist Alan Hart.

It was easy to see where Rivera was heading, you could hear the hate in his voice when he played the clip from two years ago.  Rivera owes them an apology but failed to see the irony of his own confusion.  Of course, Rivera could have an agenda.


Mr. Rivera leaves more than a few things out of his story.  The Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, the group he is now behind, don’t just say Building 7 was a “mystery,” they say all three buildings were engineering impossibilities, even or perhaps “especially” those hit by planes.  The buildings were constructed to withstand, with no structural damage whatsoever, hits by larger planes than these.  When we say “no structural damage” we aren’t talking about them falling down.

Similarly, the Pentagon attack is, if that is possible, even more obvious than the Building 7 deception.  The reason building 7 is chosen is because there is enough hard evidence already to make arrests, enough evidence for criminal convictions for premeditated murder. 

The case for Building 7 is there and those who could be arrested would shock the world.  This is why every move for any inquiry is crushed.  It would bring the world to a stop, for a brief second at least.

It would also leave the world better, safer and cleaner.  Nobody at Fox News wants that.


On July 7, 2005, bombs went off all over London.  An exhaustive Wikipedia article, carefully orchestrating the “spin,” blaming the bombings on Osama bin Laden, now known to have been dead for 4 years at the time, is an interesting read.  However, the families of those who died have been screaming “false flag” all along. 

The timing, when Tony Blair was facing an election and a no-confidence vote on Iraq, was curious.  Some aspects of the bombing, in particular, the one bus which seemed purposefully rerouted, have millions of Britons up in arms.

Were there not “theories” that contradict the cursory and seemingly “planned in advance” investigation, the violent reactions by the government to requests for a new investigation have, in themselves, brought many to questioning the official story. 

As with 9/11, it isn’t that Geraldo Rivera is reassessing his opinions, it is that he is doing it nearly a decade later after having every bit of evidence he is now claiming he has just learned about at his disposal for years and years.  Rivera, heaven forbid, is a journalist, and has personally heard the engineering doubts about 9/11 dozens of times for many years.

Is Rivera more an actor?  Rodeo clown?


Covering up 9/11 is key to Israel’s foreign policy.  If they are blamed, America will turn on them as journalist Franklin Lamb warned this week.  Rivera, an Israeli citizen, has reason to have an agenda especially since he works for Fox News, owned by Rupert Murdoch, another Israeli citizen.  Rivera?  Murdoch?

Simply put, if 9/11 was an inside job, Israel was there every step of the way and so was Fox News.  Now they are trying to “spin” the story, control it, make murder a joke.

Murder is not a joke.  Building 7 was demolished with explosives placed there long before 9/11.  Rivera admits as much.  Watch the video.

This is premeditated murder.  Last time we checked, this was a crime in New York City.

Don’t miss Kevin Barrett’s radio shows! And visit for more…

Geraldo: Has he rescinded the digitis impudicus he once flashed at the “nutjobs” who support 9/11 truth?

At first glance, Geraldo’s 9/11 show with Bob McIlvaine and Tony Szamboti was mind-boggling. Never before has mainstream network TV put such a favorable spin on 9/11 truth.

Even at second glance it’s still pretty mind-boggling. Congratulations to everyone involved – Bob and Tony (who performed brilliantly), the NYCcan and BuildingWhat folks, and behind them the whole truth movement. (I will be welcoming Tony Szamboti to Truth Jihad Radio next Saturday, Nov. 20th, 5 to 7 pm Central, live on

After the celebrations and congratulations are over, it’s time to ask: Why are Geraldo and Fox doing this now? After all, the destruction of WTC-7 was an obvious controlled demolition from day one. Now, almost ten years later, Geraldo finally gets it. What’s up with that?

Gordon Duff of VT – who will join me on the radio next Tuesday, November 23rd – writes:

“This week,  Geraldo Rivera was foiled in his attempt to “contain” the 9/11 movement,  something exploding around the world…Rivera tried,  during the show,  to “sucker” the parent of a Building 7 murder victim into a 2 minute discussion of 9/11 as an “inside job” knowing quite well he would be able to get a quick attack in.  Rivera was outwitted as the video shows,  cut off at the legs.  Why would Rivera do this?”

Duff thinks that Rivera, an Israeli citizen, and Fox, a de facto Israeli network, are “trying to ‘spin’ the story,  control it,  make murder a joke.”

How could Rivera/Fox have been attempting to spin/control 9/11 truth? Duff speculates that Rivera is disguising the 9/11 false-flag mass murders – a crime whose perpetrators and main motive are fairly well-known – as a “mystery.”

Following Duff, I think Rivera/Fox is trying to impose certain limits of permissible discourse on 9/11 activists: Ask questions, but don’t make strong statements about who did it and why. Sign a petition if you’re an engineer or an architect, otherwise keep your mouth shut because what do you know. Whatever you do, don’t demonstrate noisily in the streets like those “nut jobs” in the clip he showed. Anybody who makes too much noise, or who takes too strong action, will be attacked as a “nut job” by Fox.

But if you follow all of Fox’s rules, you may get a few minutes of approval from Fox/Rivera! Then you can sit back and feel good about yourself being so calm and professional and responsible! What a wonderful feeling, after all these years of being attacked and vilified by Fox and the sheeple who watch it!

It will feel so good that if any other 9/11 activists dare to make 9/11 truth look bad by being loud, rebellious, unruly, overly confident or assertive about who did it and why, or (G-d forbid) “anti-Semitic” (by bringing up the case against Israel and Zionists)…well, we’ll just have to silence them and censor them and shout them down and ban them from websites and start flame wars and lynch mobs to keep them in line! (Now THAT is beneficial cognitive diversity.)

The polite approach to 9/11 truth has its place. But carried too far, it serves the interests of the perpetrators. The reason is that “9/11” is a meme, and the default status for that meme is “radical Arab Muslim attack on America.”

The thing about memes is that the more you mention a given meme – even if you’re questioning or opposing it – the more you unwittingly reinforce it. So every 9/11 activist who helps keep the 9/11 meme alive by talking and writing and posting and demonstrating about 9/11 may be (among other things) unwittingly helping reinforce the “Muslims did it” meme in service to the perpetrators.

This is especially true when the emphasis is on victims and family members, first responders, and anything else that taps into the prefabricated patriotic myth constructed for the event ahead of time and wheeled out by the psy ops pros on the morning of the 11th.

Note that the Let It Happen On Purpose (LIHOP) paradigm, which imagines top US officials looking the other way while evil Arab Muslim terrorists hijacked and crashed planes, tends to reinforce the “Muslims did it” meme far more than it undermines it.  Keeping all of this in mind, it is easy to see why certain people and/or anonymous cyber-entities at 911blogger have been suspected of “working for the other side.

So Rivero/Fox (and presumably the psy-ops pros behind them) don’t really mind if we politely question 9/11, harp on its being a mystery, critique the official reports, invoke family members and first responders, and so on. What they don’t want us to do is assertively create and spread alternative memes that could crowd out the original “Arab-Muslim terrorist attack” meme from the public mind.

Such memes include but are not limited to: False-flag attack, inside job, controlled demolition, Zionist operation, Mossad operation, remote-control planes, accused hijackers are innocent, war on Islam for Israel, Zionist coup d’etat, big lie, Reichstag fire, Zionist attack on America, trigger for criminal wars of aggression, and so on.

Okay, you say, we get your point about memes – but why all this harping on Israel and Zionists?

First, because it’s true. Nobody else had such an overwhelming, existential motive to pull off something as huge and as risky as 9/11. As Chomsky correctly said, the Bush Administration would have been crazy to do it. But the Israelis, who inhabit an illegitimate state doomed by history, had nothing to lose and everything to gain. The “who gains” question alone argues Israel did 9/11.

And this interpretation is supported by extensive evidence – evidence that the overly-polite wing of the truth movement, the thought police who guard and monitor it, and the Israeli Fox hosts who encourage it, don’t want us to talk about.

At the end of the day, the (true) “Zionists did it” meme can and will eventually crowd out the (false) “Muslims did it” meme. Simply asking questions and invoking mysteries won’t.
