Chicago Delenda Est!
Rahm the Bomb
Takes Aim!


"Carthago delenda est!" (Carthage must be destroyed!) was the political mantra of the Roman statesman Cato. His wish was fulfilled by the Third Punic War; in 146 B.C. the Roman army took the [ancient] Libyan city, slew or enslaved the inhabitants and destroyed the buildings. As a final touch they salted the earth, in a 2,000-year-anticipation of existential warfare, as practiced by the Anglo-Judeo Axis (AJAX) against the "Axis of Evil" (EVAX).
Tacitus records in his Agricola, that a conquered Celtic chieftain, asked how he liked Roman peace, replied bitterly, "Solitudinem faciunt, et pacem vocant." (They make a wasteland, and they call it peace.)

HOUSTON, 5/3/11, 2:23 PM — The more I scout, the worse things look for the Windy City. Late Mayday, after Obama said that Osama was dead, I posted OBL death means “nuclear hellstorm” vows KSM, which evaluated the prospects of Chicago being nuked. A month earlier I posted Nuke Coded 329211 a Real Threat, based on FBI claims that Phoenix City (another name for Chi-town) was in danger of a nuclear attack.
It isn’t surprising that the Feds have designated Sears Tower, zip code 60606, a top terror target since 9/11. After all, it’s the last remaining 110-story skyscraper left standing; the other two were WTC 1 and WTC 2.


U.S. Intel Chief: Tall Buildings and
Mass Casualties Top AQ’s Hit List

Chicago’s Sears Tower and other iconic buildings in Seattle, Dallas and Los Angeles still top al Qaeda’s target list in the U.S., according to the top U.S. intelligence official.

“Their intentions are mass casualties larger than 9/11 inside the United States,” Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell said in an interview with the D.C. radio station WTOP. (ABC, 7/20/2007 / 7227)


Nor is it surprising that yesterday Chicago’s Mossad Mayor-to-be Rahm Emanuel, the son of a Jewish Irgun terrorist, named Garry McCarthy, Giuliani’s right-hand man on 9/11, to be his top cop. McCarthy’s foremost priority will be to aid and abet 9/11-2B, the Ghost Troop code-name for the next 9/11. The announcement was clearly choreographed with the White House, coming amid scenes of Pavlovian patriotism.
The spell will not last long, and a May false flag is in keeping with the timetable. At the end of the month Benjamin Netanyahu, who was nearby for the US 9/11 and the UK 7/7 operations, will visit Obama, to whom he made a congratulatory call yesterday. In mid-May National Level Exercise, 2011 (NLE 11) will be running in the Chicago area, perfect cover for a staged terror attack.
The present is perilous, too. Today is the 113th birthday of Golda Meir (1898 – 1978), former Prime Minister of Israel. It’s the start of the retrial of former Governor Rod Blagojevich, on corruption charges, which may be a signal for the initiation of an operation. Finally, it’s the fifth anniversary of secretive NLE-06, in which a massive police, military and Homeland Security force was operating under the war-game scenario of a nuclear bomb destroying an unspecified skyscraper. In that case the sentencing of Zacarias Moussaoui set up a storyline eerily like the today’s: An evil Arab Al-Qaeda 9/11 terrorist has been brought to justice, and the public has been programmed to expect and accept a revenge attack.
It was my honor to instigate a rebellion of military and police officers in what we code-named the Mayday Mission in 2006. The Chicago internet and activist communities were well-engaged in cyber-skirmishing with the traitors Richard Daley, Rod Blagojevich and Michael Chertoff when Ghost Troop joined in what came to be a blueprint for defensive infowar operations.
Given the gravity of the times, I beg that perceptive patriots read and relay the article below, which is about the averted Chicago attack. The documentation is indisputable, the better part of it coming from the conspirators themselves. It is my belief that the just defenders of good will prevail over the unjust aggressors of evil; and it is my prayer that my evidence will be useful to an established court — or if necessary a revolutionary tribunal. In my eight-year mission of conscience I have lived to provide a chronicle, and I am dying to prove it correct.

Chicago Cops Dodge
Blagojevich/ Sears Tower

by MAJ William B. Fox

(Originally published by The Lone Star Iconoclast, 12/23/2008)

Major William B. Fox a USMC veteran and Harvard Business School graduate, is the publisher of America First Books, which features the Captain May’s Index, He is also the Ghost Troop Executive Officer.


A Chicago Police Department official, who refused to be identified by name, stated that city law enforcement would avoid investigating allegations against embattled Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich and Mayor Richard M. Daley.
Former Army intelligence officer Capt. Eric H. May, military/political editor of the Lone Star Iconoclast, recently repeated that the governor and mayor were co-conspirators in a May 2-4, 2006, attempt to sabotage Chicago's Sears Tower. The 110-story building was bought on the day of the March 11, 2004, Madrid bombing by Larry Silverstein.
Even with recent revelations of widespread corruption and conspiracy by Illinois and Chicago officials, the former NBC editorial writer's allegations would seem outlandish -- were they not backed up by a document trail connecting everyone from top government officials to media mainstays and even active-duty military intelligence. All of them coalesced into an informal alliance against the governor, the mayor and Homeland Security director Michael Chertoff, who was heading up exercises set to simulate the collapse of an unnamed downtown Chicago skyscraper. All of them believed that the chance of an attack against the Silverstein property was real.
The documents tell the tale.
On April 26, 2006, advised of a possible attack by inside sources, May put in calls to Illinois National Guard Public Affairs Officer Col. Tim Franklin and Chicago Police Public Information Officer Laura Kubiak. Both confirmed the existence of terror exercises rehearsing the demolition of Sears Tower. Alarmed, May issued RED ALERT: "CHICAGO 911" CONFIRMED, which was quickly posted worldwide. 1
The next day, April 27, the Illinois governor's office issued a press release confirming the just-exposed exercises, revealing that the exercises, involving up to 2,000 participants, had been in the works -- unannounced -- for seven months. 2
Shortly afterwards, May wrote Blagojevich directly. He copied contacts in the Defense and State Departments, stating his conviction that there was a treasonous plot afoot. 3
After two days of silence from the governor's office, May began to give interviews, expressing his doubts about Blagojevich and Daley. The Chicago mayor was curiously absent from the city at the time on a first-ever visit to Israel, in the company of Israeli intelligence.
"The Edge," hosted by radio journalist Daniel Ott, spread word about the suspicious exercises widely throughout the Midwest. 4
It may seem inconceivable that Chicago police would still shy away from investigating or even discussing the possibility of an official conspiracy, but May isn't surprised.
"We should remember just how dangerous government can be. Every great American since the Founding Fathers has agreed on that point. No one should be surprised that "Blago" and company are part of a conspiracy. It wasn't so long ago that Illinois officials conspired with Al Capone. The Chicago cops stood by and played dumb then, too."
Decorated Vietnam combat veteran Merlin Neadows, who was part of what has since come to be called the "Chicago Mayday Mission," is even harsher with Windy City law enforcement:
"They're a disgrace," the former infantryman said. "They know that we did their job while they hid back in 2006, and they're still hiding. If it hadn't been for us Internet infowarriors, Chicago would have had a terror attack for sure."

Additional Note

Dear CPT May:

In the Appendix below I supply references which provide some important additional background on the topics you have covered...
...It is worth adding that on both my BP-Gulf Catatrophe web page at: and my Fukushima page at: I have documented strong evidence that unspeakably evil high level insiders have deliberately unleashed mass death and destruction to accomplish their nefarious purposes. It is totally plausible to me that these same malefactors would be more than happy to nuke Chicago if they thought they could get away with it.
As Alex Jones likes to put it (I know you have a lot of issues with him, but I will quote him anyway) "This is serious. This is not a joke, this is not a game." As a consequence, I continue to be very aggressive about blind-copying many individuals involved not only with media, but also with law enforcement and security, not only in the United States (of course as a U.S. citizen my first priority is the U.S. national interest) but also around the world.
(Incidentally, my quotation of Alex Jones is not meant to be an endorsement of everything that he says. Please see a "pros and cons" discussion regarding Alex Jones in my section on him in my "Libertarianism vs. Nationalism" web page. Nor do I mean to in any way trivialize your issues with him).
This go around I am putting an accent on contacting Illinois sheriffs. However, I am also contacting foreign security-related people as well because ultimately a false flag nuke in Chicago has tremendous international ramifications. I am a great believer in what you once extolled in one of your interviews as "Samizdat media," which, incidentally, helped bring down the old Soviet Union. Maybe our own mass emails (to include the bcc: versions) can have a similar effect towards high level malefactors in the West.
Please keep up the great work.

Best regards,
Bill Fox



2010-06 (later updated) Reconciling Libertarianism and Nationalism. This is another one of my "open source intelligence, alternative media" web pages designed to candidly address important public issues. In my discussion of Pat Buchanan and Alex Jones in the "Libertarian" section, I address important dimensions of Irish Catholic politics in America that are often thought privately but are rarely expressed publicly. The fact that Mayor Richard Daley was in Israel during the May 2006 Chicago Terror Exercise was certainly an important factor which has prodded me to start re-examining Catholic vs. Jewish vs. WASP issues in American politics in much more frank and explicit detail.

2009-06 Chapter 19: The Samarra Golden Mosque Bombing and Saving the Sears Tower Once Again of the Mission of Conscience Series. This chapter explains the unfolding events behind the May 2006 Chicago Terror Exercise in some detail.

2006-05-03 Mayor Richard Daley Tours Jerusalem's Old City by Andy Shaw, I have reproduced the first seven paragraphs for the record below, which are significant because they suggest that Mayor Daley's wife Maggie Daley may have been a major motivating factor behind the trip -- or could this just be another cover story?

May 3, 2006 (WLS) -- Mayor Richard Daley visited Israel on the second leg of his trip to the Middle East. He went to Jerusalem's old city Wednesday in a tour that was as much political as it was spiritual.

The old city of Jerusalem includes the Temple Mount, where Al-Aqsa, one of the holiest sites in Islam, is located. It's where a visit by the former Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, infuriated Palestinians and may have sparked the bloody intifada that wracked the country for the next four years. So, in a concession to local political realities, Mayor Daley took a pass on visiting this tourist site.

"I have visited Jordan and now officially visiting Israel. This is their day of independence. It is not a sleight of hand at all," said Mayor Richard Daley.

The mayor and his family and the Jewish delegation from Chicago are visiting the rest of the Old City, retracing the route that Christ walked to the crucifixion, which is said to have occurred at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, where Jesus is believed to be buried in a tomb inside a tiny dark crypt. They're also visiting the holiest site in Judaism, the Western or Wailing Wall, beneath the original temples of Jerusalem. This is where the mayor, an Irish Catholic, follows a Jewish custom by writing a note of prayer to place in a crack in the wall.

"[I am praying] on behalf of my parents and my sister and my son Kevin and a prayer for Israel, the United States and a prayer for peace," said Daley.

"Think of the millions of people that have walked these streets over all these many years, it is truly overwhelming," said Maggie Daley, Chicago's First Lady.

Maggie Daley's gone with the mayor on a lot of trips since she was diagnosed with cancer. And, in fact, she is said to be the moving force behind this trip, which has been on the drawing board, with a standing invitation from Jewish leaders in Chicago, since Daley became mayor in 1989. ..

2006-05-05 Mayor Daley in ISRAEL During Chicago 9/11 Terror Exercise by Capt. Eric May, There is quite a lot of valuable information in this post, which I have decided to reproduce here to supply an important additional record on the Internet.

Dear Mr. Hinz,

I note with interest that you wrote this article Mayor Daley heading to Israel to study security measures:, which I am investigating as the presiding officer of the Chicago 911 Inquest.

Magic 4/19 Comes Up Again!

Your article is of interest to me and my fellow investigators for a number of reasons. One is the date of the article, 4/19/06 (a couple of weeks ago). We note with interest that the date 4/19 is the anniversary of both Waco and Oklahoma City, as well as the two-year anniversary of a widely publicized attempt to set up the Sears Tower for a terror strike.

According to internet analysis by independent experts (like me, a former military intelligence officer), the set-up was by the Bush Administration, which needs a set-up terror event (we call it 911-2B) to continue its war. According to mainstream writers, though, there was an Al Qaeda attempt to set up the Sears Tower. I would be willing to believe the mainstreamers, had it not been for the fact that their version of an 4/19 terror attempt not been written and rationalized after the internet analysis. As you're no doubt aware, the internet research community is far more astute than the so-called "experts" propped up by the media to prop up state conspiracy theories like the "official" story of 911.

The search phrase "Chicago Sears Tower terror" is a most interesting one: Plug it into your favorite search engine and find articles intermingled, written by mainstream apologists trying to set up the attack/tower collapse for Bush, the other by patriots like me, who have picked the shoddy set-up story apart at every turn. We are most curious as to whether the 4/19 date of your story was your own idea, or one transmitted to you by superiors. No doubt you can understand our interest.

Mayor Daley in Media Mecca (Israel)

Another part of your article is most interesting, as well: Mayor Daley's Israel visit. Mayor Daley must not have known about the internet mission we ran last week to spread a critical report that the Bush Administration, aided and abetted at every turn by the Israel Lobby, was setting Chicago up for a terror strike in recently held May 2-4 "terror exercises." As we pointed out in our published letter to your Governor Blagojevich, the scenario of those exercise, coupled with the secrecy and the Bush political crisis, had us quite concerned:

You can appreciate, I'm sure, the irony that during the exact period when we think the Israel Lobby is about to stab America in the back by helping out with a hit on Chicago, the Chicago mayor is in Israel with the state security apparatus! It doesn't make any sense to me at all, since the mayor should have been a big part of the major (and secret) terror exersices, in order to round out the command cell.

I think that perhaps the mayor has been tricked into unwitting participation with an attempt to commit high treason and mass murder against the citizens of Chicago. The ramifications his being where he was are quite shocking, and I'm wondering whether the Israeli government didn't actually lure the mayor over there as a part of "international terror exercises" -- a great cover for carrying out another 911. The word I'm getting from my cyber-scouts is that the Chicago police have established exchange programs with Israeli police/military entities, and this is most disturbing to those of us who understand the role of Isreal in our current "War on Terror" woes.

After Action Review & Msg. Distribution

I'm figuring that by passing this note to you, I'm passing it to Mayor Daley. As I told the governor, I'm taking up the investigation as a matter of conscience, though I'm sure it's a perilous undertaking. I'm copying this email to a wide array of interested parties via the BCC line, and will make it a part of my Chicago 911 Inquest, to which I encourage you, the mayor and all loyal citizens to apply:

I will be releasing a "Chicago 911 After Action Report (AAR)" soon, in which I'll synthesize the analysis and actions I've been part of since uncovering the terror exercise April 26, the day before your governor admitted it in a follow-up press release. You can contact me if you want to be on the distribution list, or you can simply look it up on the internet. Everything I've written on the Chicago 911 has been widely published, and will continue to be, I suspect.

Ambassador Chase Untermeyer (Qatar) is an old friend and is a member of my cyber-intelligence group (as chaplain), Ghost Troop. He's in the CC's, along with good friends of mine in the Houston Police, Sergeant John Karshner (CID) and Lieutenant Felix Garcia (IAD). As a matter of fact, Sgt. Karshner and I just had a good talk about the Chicago terror drill just yesterday. Should you or the mayor's office want to connect with me, any of the gentlemen above can contact me or my attorney.

Additional Reading About Ghost Troop Cyber Militia

The online Mission of Conscience Trilogy by Maj. William B. Fox provides a historical overview and analysis of 9/11, the Madrid 3-11-2004 bombings, the London 7-7-2005 attacks, and other false flag events. It also explains the background and modus operandi of Capt. Eric May and his cyber militia called Ghost Troop that tries to anticipate and interdict repeat false flag attacks. Lastly, it diagnoses the deepest social and political dimensions of America's crises in order to recommend effective action. The summary table of contents, found here, outlines the chapters of each of the following three books:

Book I: Waking Up to the Ultimate Mission. Of particular note, Chapter 12 describes strong evidence that Osama Bin Laden has been dead since December 2001. Chapter 7 "How September 11th Became the False Flag Rosetta Stone" and Chapter 8" 9/11 Patterns As Future False Flag Indicators" explain why false flag attacks tend to coincide with major anti-terror exercises.

Book II: Defending Freedom, One False Flag Threat at a Time. This covers repeated threats against Portland, Oregon as well as Chicago, Texas City, Texas, and other cities. Chapter 14: Cindy Sheehan, Camp Casey, and Info War Martyrs provides some background on W. Leon Smith, Publisher of the Lone Star Iconoclast.

Book III: Changing the Mask, And the Continuing Cyber Battle Against False Flag "Predator" and "Alien" Larger than Books I and II combined, this takes intelligence analysis to the highest level by examining a wide range of social, political, and economic issues --with the gloves off.

The paleoconservative social and political views expressed by Major William B. Fox do not necessarily reflect those of other individuals affiliated with Ghost Troop.
