TOPOFF, Vladimir Putin,
and Yet Another Highly Coincidental
Terror Triangle” Explosion
As we moved into October 2007, we faced “TOPOFF,”
the largest civil defense exercise in American history with 20,000 participants.
We also faced a nuclear scenario for downtown
, this time consisting of an “RDD”or
“Radiation Dispersal Device.”
An “RDD” is a poor man’s nuke,
consisting of radioactive material that gets blown about an area by a
conventional explosive. There are forms
of nuclear waste, to include certain extremely toxic forms of plutonium, that
could kills tens if not hundreds of thousands of people in the
area if this
exercise scenario were to go “live,” even without a nuclear explosion.
Worse yet, the American-Israeli dual loyalist
and Department of Homeland Security Czar Michael Chertoff was personally coming
the exercise. This was about as
reassuring to Portlanders as the presence of Zionist super hawk Benjamin “Bibi”
just prior to the 7-7-2005 bombings.
Captain May wrote in “Nuclear Dictatorship — The
little over a week, the largest terror drill in
history will focus on
again. TOPOFF, Oct. 15-19, is designed give “Top Officials” a chance to react
to a catastrophic scenario — a “dirty nuke” terror attack uncomfortably similar
to the Noble Resolve nuke attack of two months ago.
The Bush administration will be
running more than one exercise — just as it did on 9/11. Joining TOPOFF will be
Vigilant Shield, which intelligence insiders believe will practice the
dictatorship directive, NSPD 51. The name “Vigilant Shield” brings to mind “Vigilant
Guardian,” the 9/11/2001 Air Force exercise that pulled away fighter aircraft
supposed to guard mainland
and sent them off to counter a simulated Russian attack in
. Vigilant Guardian may also have been
simulating hijacked aircraft, thereby confusing the few remaining fighter
aircraft guarding us. Given that Vigilant Guardian was anything but a vigilant
guardian on the day of the last
terror attack, just how reassured should we feel by the feel-good name of
The twin exercises TOPOFF and
Vigilant Shield will mobilize as many as 20,000 federal, state, local and
tribal officials. The nuclear attack envisioned for
is also slated for Guam and
In his interview with Carol
Bruillet, Capt May discussed how ground zero for the nuke scenario was shifted
from the Burlington Northern railroad bridge north of Portland along the
Willamette to the Steel Bridge in downtown Portland. This low-to-the-water, heavily box-framed
was built in 1912 as an industrial lift bridge to accommodate heavy railroad
traffic. It is definitely an eyesore in
view of the much more graceful arch bridges that characterize all of Portland’s
other water crossings, not to mention the tens of millions of dollars Portland
has spent trying to upgrade the waterfront areas south of this bridge (author’s
note: I should know, having once lived in downtown Portland and frequently
jogged a “loop” that includes the Steel Bridge and all the waterfront
improvements to the south of it).
definitely qualifies as a white elephant that would probably require a
mini-nuke event to replace it over the strenuous objections of major railroad
companies. It also carries Portland’s MAX line, a light rail system for mass
transportation that connects Portlanders with their International Airport and
major suburbs ranging from west to east of the central business district.
’s “heavy industrial”
In it’s 2 Oct 2007 editorial leading up to TOPOFF titled “Different Shades
of Unthinkable,” The Oregonian commented:
“It’s hard to know what’s scarier: the idea of
responding to a terrorist attack in Portland or the idea that the government is
using a drill as a pretext to seize power, declare martial law and, possibly,
This chapter explores TOPOFF from several “scary” and “unthinkable”
dimensions. First, I address the
exercise a personal survivalist and “total resistance” exercise in the face of
a potentially tyrannical government. Secondly, as exercise in international diplomacy in which a foreign adversary
of the New World Order may have saved Portlanders from their own government, and lastly, as an informal polling
exercise to ascertain the level of naïveté and degeneracy of Portland’s leaders
that has likely rendered their city a Mossad-CIA “soft target.”
Prior to TOPOFF, I lived in
about eight miles from ground zero. Fortunately
I was located behind some hills that would have provided good protection from
flash burns and shock waves if a ground-level nuclear explosion had taken
My bigger concern was the possibility that the
Bush cabal might use such an explosion as a pretext to enforce martial law and
round up dissidents within a twenty mile radius. Since I had joined Capt May in warning the
public about a possible flag attack, I would hardly be surprised if the Feds came
up with some weird frame-up theory that I must have had foreknowledge and hence
helped plan the explosion. They have
done weirder things with suspects like Lee Harvey Oswald.
and Brandon Mayfield (see chapter 9).
Earlier that summer I had been thinking about relocating even before I
became aware of TOPOFF. As one effort in
that direction, I attended a conference hosted by Pastor David Barley in
that featured speakers and attendees like Final
Judgment author Michael Collins Piper, white civil rights activist Stan
Hess, and historical revisionist Michael A. Hoffman. While the conference focused upon global
Zionism rather than survivalism, it gave me an opportunity to discuss with
various fellow activists the advantages of places in
I decided that it was probably wiser
for activists to stay spread out rather than everyone concentrate in northern
Idaho, so just prior to TOPOFF, I relocated to South Bend, Washington, a rural
community of about 1,100 people near the Washington coast, about 80 miles as
the crow flies northwest and upwind of Portland.
The thought that kept bedeviling me was
if the Bush cabal went ahead and popped a nuke in Portland and mass murdered
more fellow Americans, how I could not only evade getting sent off to a FEMA
camp, but instead be part of some kind of effective resistance to counter tyrannical government? I was already a
full time activist in the cyber resistance, but now I was wondering about
physical resistance as well.
A second thought that bedeviled me involved the strong possibility that
even if we do not get hit by a nuke, our paper-driven economy seems to be
headed towards an eventual economic melt-down that will likely generate massive
Either way, how could I become part
of a more effective community capable of providing mutual support as well as resistance?
This mental exercise effectively
became my personal exercise version of TOPOFF.
However, I must emphasize that even
if I felt we had good government in America, and everything were wonderful, I
would still advocate remaining fully armed and organized with a local militia,
just like I advocate that people follow good nutrition, regularly exercise, and
lift weights even when they are already healthy.
Thomas Jefferson once commented, “When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there
Using the predator vs. counter
predator ecological model, the reason why we have false flag attacks to begin
with is precisely because there are too few viable resistance communities left
on a grass roots level.
I need to point out that armed citizenry and
militia were the social norm in many Northern European societies going back to very
ancient times, and that all of this is by no means an exclusive product of the
American Revolution. In fact, the
existence of the armed citizen has a high correlation with relatively
decentralized societies that favors individual liberty and republican
traditions. I explain all of this in
more detail in the “why we fight” section of chapter 6.
I must also observe that all of this
is usually very hard for Zionist to comprehend on an instinctive as well as
intellectual level, since quite a few of their ancestors evolved as a criminal
caste in Asiatic-despotic societies. These are the same types of Zionists who
currently control Barack Hussein Obama II and the Department of Homeland
Security. They ultimately seek to rob Americans of their liberty in the name of
I think that there are basically two
approaches that are intertwined with each other for an activist to help develop
a successful local resistance community in
today. All communities in
that love freedom must become resistance communities, and yesterday was not
The first approach involves the
normal methods most people ordinarily follow when they run for local political
office. It involves meeting many people, gaining their respect and support,
and understanding their needs.
I must emphasize that this must
remain the first approach in more ways than one. Wars and other forms of violence tend to have
unintended consequences, and it is wise to exhaust all peaceful, legal means
before resorting to guerilla tactics. Even
if a federal tyranny were to eventually go down violently before patriotic
freedom fighters, it could still kill a lot of innocent people and spread quite
a lot depleted uranium all over
In addition, most of the histories I
have read about insurgencies stress that popular support is always mandatory
for guerillas to survive. Successful
insurgents frequently spend years preparing an area politically before the shooting
starts. Even after the open warfare commences, they still put tremendous emphasis on developing and maintaining
The second approach involves the use of militant
methods to oppose government terror. In fact, an ultimate goal is often to establish local popular
sovereignty through force of arms. In other words, effectively replace a hostile government with a friendly one.
One of the real mental exercises
inspired by Operation TOPOFF
One excellent example of a guide book
for resisting government terror is Total Resistance: Swiss Army
Guide to Guerrilla Warfare and Underground Operations by Major H. Von Dach Bern, copyright 1965. This reflects the author's brilliant analysis
of the history of occupations as well as the methods used by successful
This might be viewed as a
"defensive" publication, since at various times the Swiss government
has distributed this work to all of its able-bodied citizens. The Swiss government
has generally been the friend of its citizenry and not its enemy, therefore it
has not been concerned about disseminating this kind of information, or at
least this is the way it was back in the 1960’s or ‘70’s. However, I can see
how evil government intent upon oppressing its population would feel
In fact, fat chance that in today’s
the ultra paranoid Department of Homeland Security would ever distribute this book to American
citizens. In April 2009, Homeland
Security Director Janet Napolitano said she supported a document that claims
veterans, along with anti-abortionists, are potential terrorists! Citizens are supposed to put such
individuals who might manifest “suspicious behavior” on report to the feds, as
opposed to quietly organizing with them to resist various forms of tyranny.
Obviously Ms. Napolitano and I do
not see eye to eye on quite a few issues. In fact, it is quite sobering to compare
Major Von Dach Bern's commentary on the basic rules of occupation terror and
behavioral changes by certain factions of the
government in recent years.
Major Von Dach Berne wrote (page
1. Basic Rules of Terror
If you resist political
indoctrination and the enemy realizes that he is failing in his attempts to
"convert" you to his ideology, he will attempt to obtain obedience
through fear. He will try to create the fear by terror. The enemy has developed
terror techniques which have proven very effective. You therefore must be
prepared. If you are acquainted with these techniques you can resist them more
terror measures are:
Surveillance of telephone and letters through censorship;
Establishment of an agent and informer net;
No public trials except "show trials";
f) Lengthy prison sentences

Does any of this look familiar in
My hope is that social conditions
never degenerate in
to the point where we experience all-out guerilla warfare against the
government. However, paradoxically,
maintaining a viable threat that Americans can successfully wage guerilla war may
be required to keep the U.S. Government relatively honest and restrained from
imposing the total Orwellian police state.
It could very well be that the most viable
long term political solution in
is to return sovereignty to the states similar to the era of the Articles of
Confederation. The Federal government will be dramatically downsized, and each
state will assume responsibility for protecting its own borders, issuing or
protecting the local currency, and exercising other basic sovereignty rights.
Conversely, if the Federal
government insists on creating a total police state, and Americans are forced
to resort to the militant techniques addressed by Bern, I think that there is a
good chance that grass roots patriots will win over the long run for the following
Unlike the Federal government during
the War Between the States, the U.S. Government will be completely bankrupt and
lacking a significant industrial base, having seen over 75% of America’s
industry outsourced in recent decades.
Rather than having a protective
ally such as the Czar of Russia who sent his fleet to reinforce the Lincoln
Administration, which in turn prevented France and England from joining the
Confederacy, I think that this go around the U.S. government has made so many
foreign enemies through its global bullying in support of Zionism that many
major countries around the world would be tickled pink to see the U.S. break
apart. Efforts by
World Order elite to bring in U.N. troops to patrol American streets will
probably do much more to antagonize Americans than to bring peace.
Whereas the War of Northern
Aggression Against Southern Independence witnessed a rebellion that was mostly concentrated
in the South, this next go around there are likely to be significant numbers of
highly disaffected Americans spread all over the country. If all states were to secede at once, the
Federal government would be overwhelmed, just as the old Soviet government was
overwhelmed by multiple seceding former “

strong evidence that it has already lost its gold reserves), it will have a

well-disciplined, clever insurgents can frequently tie down more than ten times
as many government troops. This is
because insurgents typically attack soft targets such as pipelines and power
lines that are difficult to guard. They
also commonly harass primary targets with indirect mortar fire. Insurgents typically try to force the
government to chase after them in country where guerillas have prepositioned mines, booby
traps, and ambush kill zones and can otherwise fight on their own terms. This problem would become especially severe
for the central government if foreign countries were to supply mortars, IEDs, remote-controlled
robotic guns, anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons to insurgents, reminiscent of
the way CIA-supplied Stingers and other advanced weapons significantly helped the Taliban defeat the
Lastly, we can expect that if the U.S.
Government were to try to forcefully suppress domestic rebellion, it would
probably continue to be its own worst enemy just as it has been in
. It would probably continue using heavy-handed
search and destroy tactics, and even torture, against fellow Americans in ways
that further alienate the local population. The heavy-handed efforts by the government to
suppress civil liberties since 9-11 suggests that when push comes to shove,
it’s Zionist leaders feel that ruthless force is the only option.
I ended up spending one and half
after TOPOFF. Most of my time was
focused on writing and helping Capt. May fight the Info War over the Internet. I felt that since the Info War is our first
line of defense, this had to remain my first priority.
Therefore, I never really invested
any significant time towards implementing my ideas about solidifying local
political support and organizing paramilitary resistance. Most of the time I got into political
conversations with local folks I simply referred them to my web site
More than anything else, my
ended up being simply a personal mental exercise, similar to TEWTs (Tactical
Exercise Without Troops) that I experienced on field trips in civilian attire
while attending Marine Corps schools.
As I came across different kinds of
people while going through daily routines, I often wondered in the back of my mind
how useful such people might be if it became necessary to commence total
resistance operations against federal tyranny.
So much for my personal mental
exercise response to TOPOFF. Now back to
the exercise itself.
TOPOFF started on Monday, October 15,
2007. Several individuals who wanted to
get out of
during the exercise contacted both myself and Capt. May to find out our opinion
about what days of the exercise might be the most potentially dangerous for a
false flag event.
Our response was that the first day
of an exercise is probably the safest day, particularly if it falls on a Monday. It appears that false flag operators
typically need their Sundays to rest and recuperate, and their Mondays to get
acclimated to a command post position. Apparently they need a little time to get settled in at their desks, revise
their to-do-lists, go over their command and control contacts, and insure that
their office lounge remains well-stocked with the right brand of coffee they
will be sipping later in the week while watching hapless victims get shot, blown
up, or irradiated.
Tuesdays to Fridays have historically
been the most dangerous days. As some
examples noted in the chronology section of this work, the 9-11 attack on the
Pentagon and the 7-11-2006 Mumbai bombing took place on a Tuesday. The
,10-12-2005 second Bali,
and the 11-9-2005
bombings took place on Wednesday. Both the
7-7-2005 bombings took place on Thursday. And the 11-22-1963 JFK assassination and 8-8-2008 Georgian sneak attack
took place on Friday.
The second day of TOPOFF both Capt. May and I
relaxed quite a bit when we got news that the ultimate “human shield” had

24, 2007 Lone Star Iconoclast article

’s name on them,
consistent with the repeated warnings by national media since the
3-11-2004 that it is not a question of if, but rather when an
American city will get nuked?
At this point in the article, I shifted gears
to discuss a suspicious possible dirty nuke extraction episode in
, as well as a
suspicious explosion within the “Texas Terror Triangle.”
If TOPOFF had in fact been originally intended by
the Bush cabal to provide cover for a false flag event in
, their operatives would have very
likely inserted a bomb in the city. However, once Putin thwarted Bush and the
Israelis, the operatives would have then needed to abort their mission and
extract the bomb.
Early Thursday afternoon, following the meeting
between Putin and Olmert (
is eleven hours
) three different dogs alerted
to bomb residue on a car parked in the Lloyd Center Double Tree hotel garage in
was reported that the vehicle belonged to an exercise participant. Police
cordoned off a large area with yellow tape, evacuated the hotel, and even
stopped the nearby MAX light rail line. Department of Homeland Security Czar
Michael Chertoff was scheduled to arrive at the Double Tree that afternoon.
Instead, he got taken elsewhere by police.
No arrests were reported. The Oregonian claimed that false alarms are common since bomb residue can become impregnated
in the clothing of members of police explosives teams.
The Columbian reported that no bomb was
found. The residue may have come from a firearm. It may have also involved
residue from a bus that was blown up on Tuesday as part of the exercise.
9-11 Truth activists have reason to question
reports that downplay this incident. Many recall how the initial local news
reports that came just after the
bombing in 1995 talked about bombs found inside
the Murrah Federal building. Military explosives experts claim that there was
no way an explosion from Timothy McVeigh’s Ryder Truck parked well outside the
Murrah building could have exerted enough force through the air to take off
approximately a third of the building’s edifice. However, rather than welcome
these observations, national media subsequently suppressed them and played up
Timothy McVeigh and his fertilizer-based truck bomb as the primary cause of the
Perhaps the Thursday bomb scare was about nothing.
Or, then again, perhaps it was set up by disaffected insiders to undermine a
scenario; perhaps to “yank the chain” of false flag covert operatives without
spilling the beans on an overall plot. A possible message: “Next go around with
will not be so easy.”
Earlier that day, at 2 a.m, Central Standard Time,
a petrochemical pipeline exploded in
hours before it blew, my colleagues at The Lone Star Iconoclast, editor
W. Leon Smith and military correspondent Captain Eric H. May, had issued a
worldwide “red alert” for the
petrochemical industry, warning of just this kind of explosive incident. This
is the latest of several uncanny terror related warnings they have made. Capt.
May’s analysis in this issue of The Iconoclast explains what happened in
while drills were transpiring in
and other areas.
Captain May covered that event in
his article: The Texas Triangle: Terror

An Alarming Report and a Red Alert
“Maybe the people who think there’s a
conspiracy out there are right.” — Congressman Peter DeFazio, 7/20/07
W. Leon Smith, publisher of the Lone Star Iconoclast, was alarmed when
he called me at 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 17. He told me to read an e-mail
he had just received from

After I opened and read the e-mail, I became alarmed, too.
It contained a confidential British Petroleum
memorandum, issued Oct. 16 and written by company security manager Glenn
Starkey, and bore the ominous title “Live” security/terrorism exercise –

earlier, the FBI, Homeland Security, US Coast Guard and various
police agencies had been running a command post

Mr. Smith and I talked it over, and agreed that the
delay in announcing the exercises meant either that they had been suddenly
scheduled, or that the government was keeping them secret. Both of these
possibilities were cause for alarm, we agreed. We double checked our source,
confirmed it, and by 11 p.m. had issued an urgent worldwide bulletin:

A Pillar of Fire and a Fearful
“The truth is, Bush just likes to blow things up
, in the
and in Congress.”
— Congressman Pete
I woke up early the next morning to discover that
three hours after The Iconoclast issued its red alert it had been validated. A
Dow Chemical pipeline had blown up at 2 a.m. in
a city in the Texas Triangle just outside
Fire was shooting up 100 feet, area trees were igniting like matchsticks and
toxic chemicals were spewing into the city air. Residents were sheltering in
place, houses shut up and air conditioners shut off to keep themselves from
being poisoned. People throughout surrounding
could see a pillar of fire, but
thought it was hell on earth.
Area police were unresponsive when I called them,
offering no details when asked about ongoing exercises in Texas City and the explosion in Port Arthur. They referred me to a Homeland Security spokesperson who did not return my call. Thank God for the Internet, since that relentless medium quickly began to dig out details of what had happened. The best discovery was that Port Arthur —only two days before — had been conducting terror exercises like those in Texas City.
"And they blew it up this morning! one of our Iconoclast intelligence sources wrote us before noon, outraged at the obvious false flag operation. They have no shame, no efforts to hide their methods!"
In all likelihood the perpetrators of the Port Arthur explosion had set up the terror exercises in Texas City, and perhaps in other petroleum cities in the Texas Triangle. Once committed to the plan they pretty much had to do something. In this case, it was something relatively minor. The explosion caused no fatalities, but it was industrial sabotage at the least. The guilt was substantial and shared, which meant that none of the plotters could afford to rat the others out. Since greed is always part of a false flag conspiracy, connected insiders could profit from the inevitable flux in the markets: oil reached $90 per barrel by the end of the day, a record high.
There was an even more harrowing event than the Port Arthur explosion still in store for the Texas Triangle, though. At 5 p.m. Texas Highway 225, the Pasadena Freeway, was closed because of a nuclear incident. Local hazardous materials teams and a national Weapons of Mass Destruction Civil Support Team were on the scene, along with a full entourage of various police agencies. Pasadena is notorious throughout the area as “Stinkadena” because of the noxious fumes spilling out of its petrochemical refineries, pipelines and tank farms.
Petrochemical incidents like the one in Port Arthur are occasional facts of life in our part of Texas, but nuclear incidents like the one in Pasadena are unheard-of rarities. By the end of the day official spokespersons and the mainstream media were assuring the Texas Triangle that the petrochemical and nuclear incidents were innocuous, and unrelated. To those of us who knew the story behind the story, though, there remained the damning facts: two sudden terror drills had coincided with two WMD-related events. Without the principled insider’s report to The Iconoclast, followed by our red alert, who can say what might have occurred in the Texas Triangle?
evening 18 Oct 2007 Captain May commented that this explosion which drove oil price prices to a
record $90 a barrel, was the second time in his lifetime besides the New Caney
Pipeline explosion (2nd Ghost Troop Mission) he has been aware of an explosion
producing a 100 foot pillar of fire just outside the greater Houston area.
closing out this chapter, I want to address another alternative drill that
accompanied TOPOFF. As mentioned
earlier, I polled local community leaders to understand the level of naïveté
and irresponsibility that had rendered
a potential false flag soft target. I
provided the results in my 24 Oct 2007 Lone
Star Iconoclast article “The Real Drill.”
Appalling naïveté describes the attitude of key
TOPOFF participants in the Portland Police Bureau, sheriff’s offices, National
military. In recent interviews, they indicated they knew nothing of the
ever-growing community of investigators who believe that 9-11 was an inside job
used to usher in a Middle Eastern war plan and domestic police state.
They hadn’t heard the news that the 9-11 attacks,
like the 7-7
attacks, had occurred in the course of military and police exercises that were
simulating those exact attacks.
They were unaware of the extent to which the Israel
foreign policy and of its growing infiltration into the federal government.
Hence, it is no surprise that these TOPOFF
neophytes failed to understand the possibility that top officials might make
TOPOFF go “live” to justify a war of aggression against
and further reductions of
American civil rights.
These officers simply mirror the naïveté of the
surrounding civilian population that employs them, thinking only what their
civilian overlords tell them to think. Since their civilian bosses usually do
not know anything about high-level intrigue, they don’t either.
Ultimately we are faced with a predator vs. counter
predator ecological problem. False flag predators can roam freely whenever
opposing patriotic defenders (or “counter-predators”), such as free-thinking
political dissidents, members of the 9-11 Truth Movement, and critics of
have been driven underground.
When I called the offices of
Senators and Representatives
in the greater Portland-Vancouver area, most staff members said they received
only about two or three calls apiece in the prior week expressing concern that
TOPOFF could be taken live. One staff person commented, “Why should you be so
worried if almost no one else is?”
She had things backwards. Public naïveté helps
explain why false flag predators might target
in the first place. Naïve people are
much easier to surprise with a false flag event. Afterwards, they are much
easier to deceive with phony stories about false terrorist suspects.
Public naïveté is not an accident. The people of
are victims of a longstanding propaganda war
being waged against Americans across the country by media monopolists based in
New York City
. This propaganda war has a long
with many different ideological permutations. This propaganda is hostile to the
9-11 Truth Movement. It has infected both the highest and lowest echelons of
paralyzes their ability to effectively act in their city’s defense.
While I was a stock broker in the
area for 10 years, I had the mission of cultivating contacts with high net
worth people. These contacts enabled me to conduct a quick straw poll of some
major community leaders last week. I was curious about the extent to which such
individuals, who are vastly better equipped financially to promote political
change than most
residents, have been subverted by national media disinformation.
The former chairman and CEO of a major
Portland-based parts manufacturing company told me that he thinks it is
far-fetched to believe 9-11 was an inside job. Although he thinks
is a disaster, he feels it is too late in the game to impeach Bush. He said

The head of a leading venture capital firm told me
that she was more interested in the Brandon Mayfield case than TOPOFF.
(Mayfield is a
resident the FBI
imprisoned for his alleged involvement in the 3-11-2004
bombings. His successful court appeal
in regard to his false arrest has helped to roll back part of the Orwellian
Patriot Act). While she is generally distrustful of the government and rarely
bothers to read The Oregonian, which is self-styled as
’s “newspaper of record,” she was
unfamiliar with the “controlled demolition” explanation of the
collapses on 9-11. She thinks terrorists succeeded on 9-11 more due to
government incompetence than conspiracy. She was not aware that TOPOFF had the
potential to get highjacked. She also felt that George H. Bush by himself is
too dumb to execute a martial law clamp down by himself following a false flag
The senior partner of a leading downtown
law firm said
that he knew very little about TOPOFF. He felt that the bigger story involves
recent allegations that the current
Governor and local Multnomah County Sheriff tried to cover up the Neil
Goldschmidt scandal involving an illicit affair with a 14-year-old girl.
(Goldschmidt was a former
Mayor and Oregon State Governor). He was not aware of the 9-11 Truth movement
or anything that has to do with “controlled demolition.” He does not believe in
conspiracy theories about either 9-11 or the John F. Kennedy assassination. He
believes The New York Times would expose conspiracies if they were real.
The VP of Business Development for a leading
chip manufacturer said that he was not aware of either TOPOFF or the 9-11 Truth
movement. Although he now gets about half his news over the Internet, he is too
busy with his job and family to put in the time necessary to research the
validity of conspiracy theories. He cannot believe that
has a controlled national
media. However, he conceded it can be selectively controlled in certain areas.
The president and CEO of a successful plumbing
infrastructure company said that he only knew that TOPOFF was supposed to be a
big exercise, but he knew nothing about the 9-11 Truth Movement or the
significance of “controlled demolition.” He was not aware of the TOPOFF bomb
scare on Thursday (mentioned later in this article), and did not want to pursue
a discussion about how Bush and his cohorts might try to attack
The former president and CEO of a major electronic
equipment manufacturer said he now gets about 20 percent of his information
from the Internet, thinking it a better alternative to The Oregonian,
which he termed “
leftist paper.” He has not looked at the 9-11 Truth Movement in any detail, but
was under the impression that jet fuel could burn hot enough to melt steel and
could flow down enough floors of the
towers to cause a collapse. He felt there could not have been a “controlled”
demolition because so much of the surrounding area got damaged. He trusts
government to do the right thing. He believes that if there is a real
conspiracy, Americans can build activist organizations fast enough to
Straw Poll Analysis
This was not a “statistically significant random
sampling” of public opinion. Nevertheless, some interesting anecdotal patterns
All six of the “very smart, very successful, and
very rich” interviewees had swallowed hook, line, and sinker most of the U.S.
Government and national media propaganda about 9-11.
Half of the six sample contacts started to show
anxiety when the conversation seemed to get “too political,” when I asked
questions such as whether Al Gore might really be an establishment insider and
whether Bush is deliberately trying to pick a fight with Iran.
None of them conveyed an urgent sense that
is being run into the ground by a
demented, boy emperor-President surrounded by Neo-cons crazies who are largely
controlled by the Israel Lobby and who are intent upon converting
into a permanently embattled police state.
When I spoke with aides for
Congressmen and Senators with offices in
Areas, they, too, were decoupled from
idea of a potential “inside job.” One individual in the office of Sen. Maria
Cantwell (D-WA) did express concern with TOPOFF and offered to send my e-mail
to the Senate threat assessment team.
At the other extreme, on Friday I sent emails
requesting information from public affairs officers with the Department of
Homeland Security and the mercenary firm Blackwater
. A week went by and there was
still no response from either organization. Among other things, I was
interested in rumors that Blackwater might participate in a possible martial
law clamp down in

Putin and Chertoff affairs, and subsequently returned to the topic of local
The Real Drill…
I emphasized in warning emails sent to
and Congressman alike that as a former Marine officer, I normally support civil
defense preparedness training. I have always admired the extensive defense
preparations of the Swiss people.
However, we do not live today under anything
approaching normal political circumstances. The 9-11 Truth Movement provides
disturbing evidence that 9-11 was in actuality a silent coup de etat against
Americans and their Constitution by neocons looking for a pretext to invade
, and other countries.
The real “TOPOFF” exercise involved activism
by private citizens to protest possible actions by government-sponsored agents
provocateurs. Despite the fact that “nothing happened” in
during TOPOFF, I do not think that
any of the efforts of citizen activists were in vain. Preventing a real
nuke from going off was a primary goal of our activism to begin with. Nothing
happened; therefore, “mission accomplished.”
The need for citizen activism is hardly over. Until
we completely dismantle the Orwellian “Patriot” Act, stop senseless Middle
Eastern wars, punish the real 9-11 criminals, restore the Constitution, enforce
our borders, re-establish popular sovereignty, and rebuild a healthy economy,
we must remain on special alert and stay in the battle.
