False Flags for Denver DNC?
On June 24, 2008 on the Alex Jones Show, a nationally syndicated news/talk program that also has a huge Internet audience, retired CIA analyst Ray McGovern discussed the potential for a U.S.-Israeli attack on Iran before the Bush Administration leaves office next year.
In an editorial published by AntiWar.com on June 20, McGovern had brought our attention to a little-noticed statement by Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert about a June 4 White House meeting with President George W. Bush:
(Article continues below)
McGovern concluded that a perfect storm seems to be gathering in late summer or early fall, when the Bush Administration and allies in Israel will launch attacks against Iran.
There is reason to hypothesize that the requisite staged provocation
for an attack on Iran has already been planned and is scheduled to take
place in Denver at the time of the Democratic National Convention (DNC)
in late August.
Special Operations Command spokesman Lt. Steve Ruh said the drills were a culmination of a two-week training exercise that was part of the “war on terror.” Denver mayor John Hickenlooper denied that the exercises were security preparations for the DNC in August.
However, the following arguments could be posed for a connection with the DNC, not only as security preparations but also as dry run preparations for detonation of a contrived terrorist dirty bomb somewhere in the city.
Dry run preparations for a dirty bomb would provide valuable experience regarding implementing that particular event in that particular urban location (such as familiarity with the city layout, including that of subways and hospitals).
Anti-terrorism, anti-protest, and other security measures would already
be in place at the time of the Convention, including detention camps and
an array of armed personnel and weaponry.
It would also lend itself to scare tactics capitalizing on the terrorists’ ability to breach the massive security measures surrounding such an event. And with Iran as the declared perpetrator, official spin regarding its puported nuclear ambitions would gain new credibility.
Finally, a staged “Iranian” dirty bomb detonated to coincide with the DNC in August could be expected to revitalize support for the Bush Administration’s post 9/11 anti-terrorism matrix and for the neocon ideology that has infused it.
For many months, a number of political analysts have feared that elements in the Bush Administration have been planning major false flag “terrorism” such as the detonation of a radioactive “dirty bomb” in a U.S. city, terrorism on a scale that would justify cancellation of the coming presidential election, a declaration of martial law, and refusal to relinquish power to a successor administration.
In May 2007, Bush issued National Security Directive No. 51 giving himself, on his own initiative, the power to control the executive, legislative, and judicial branches -- all functions of government -- in the event of a catastrophic national emergency. National emergency is defined elastically as “any incident, regardless of location” that would “damage or disrupt” the U.S. population, economy, or government functions.
There is no language in Directive 51 that requires Bush to obtain the consent of Congress before he seizes such power, nor is there an acknowledgement that under existing law he is already required to do just that. Directive 51 simply ignores the existing National Emergencies Act, and in so doing Bush authorizes himself - or if he is disabled, the Vice President - to control all functions of government for the duration of the emergency “and afterward.”
A combination of official pronouncements, expansion of executive powers, and Congressional trends has led many analysts to fear that another self-serving problem-reaction-solution scenario is indeed in the offing, in which as a response to the reaction of widespread public fear the solution of martial law would be offered and welcomed.
Under Presidential Directive 51, martial law in the U.S. would automatically extend to Canada and Mexico as a result of advances, achieved largely through stealth and disinformation, in implementing a North American Union (NAU). Under martial law, the U.S. President would assume authoritarian control over the three governmental functions—executive, legislative and judicial—for all three nations.
If these events ensued within days of the first instance of violence and death, they would preclude any real recovery of the populace from the original trauma, and indeed they would escalate it to the degree necessary for acceptance of worldwide martial governance.
A warning of just such a scenario was given in 1974 by Dr. Wernher von Braun, who stated that the dark forces controlling world wealth and political power had over a third of a century ago planned a series of escalating false flag events as a means for acquiring total global control.3
This broader sort of speculation is in fact just that. But our minimal hypothesis of upcoming false flag terrorism in Denver is supported in its general themes by the informed analysis of astute thinkers in the public arena, and in its more specific expectations by the insider leaks of “White Hat” patriots. A parallel situation occurred six months ago when sources within the U.S. intelligence community leaked a neocon plot to assassinate Presidential candidate Ron Paul to freedom fighter and intrepid researcher Daniel Estulin.
In mid-December 2007 staff writer Paul Joseph Watson of Alex Jones’ Prison Planet.com reported these events:
In a second article on December 21, 2007, Watson revealed additional information:
Estulin publicized the plot at length on the Alex Jones radio and television venues, which resulted in its massive exposure across the Internet and in giving its perpetrators the answer they had been seeking regarding probable public reaction to an assassination of Ron Paul.
There are wonderful lessons here for the current case of insider concern about a horrific DNC false flag disaster that could claim 20,000 lives. Even if this concern has only a small probability of manifesting, it is nevertheless vital to disseminate it widely with a view to thwarting the plot and all of its attendant horrors.
