Pearl Harbor Day Special! Thomas Kimmel on the KB Show, ONE HOUR EARLY!

Tuesday, December 7th, 8-9 a.m. Pacific (11 a.m. – noon Eastern) on, to be archived here a few hours after broadcast…

Thomas Kimmel has taken up the fight to clear the name of his grandfather, Admiral Husband Edward Kimmel, Commander-in-Chief of the US Pacific Fleet at the time of the Pearl Harbor attack. Admiral Kimmel, along with Gen. Walter Short, were set up as Pearl Harbor scapegoats by the murderous traitors – including President FD Roosevelt and ONI Lt. Commander Arthur McCollum – who orchestrated the Pearl Harbor butchery. In fact, Kimmel and Short were heroes. They were known as men of integrity, and were therefore left out of the loop of traitors who were scheming to sacrifice American lives in order to drag the American people into a war they wanted no part of.

The truth is fully-documented in Robert Stinnett’s Day of Deceit: McCollum and FDR implemented an eight-point plan to force the Japanese to attack, closely monitored Japanese preparations for the “surprise” attack on Pearl harbor, knew exactly when and where the attack was coming, and intentionally placed thousands of defenseless sailors in harm’s way. The Pearl Harbor massacre was a classic war-trigger event designed to enrage U.S. public opinion – which was running 85% against US entry into WWII – and allow Roosevelt to bring America into the global mass slaughter of more than 60 million innocent people. A viler act of treason and homicide could hardly be imagined.

And yet it not only was imagined – it was implemented. Pearl Harbor high treason set a precedent for the even more treasonous Zionist neocons, who arranged the 9/11 inside job as a “New Pearl Harbor” designed to launch a permanent US war on Islam for Israel. (For some brand-new details about how it was done, check out Gordon Duff’s interview with an insider.)

from my book Questioning the War on Terror:

The Straussian neocon big-liars see themselves as “architects of
the lores and legends of society.”54

Are they the architects of the house (or cage) we now inhabit,
the War on Terror—the collection of lores and legends around
which our post-9/11 political life revolves?

A key War on Terror architect is Philip Zelikow, the main author
of the 9/11 Commission Report. Zelikow describes himself as a
specialist in “the construction and maintenance of public myths”
which he describes as “beliefs (1) thought to be true (although
not necessarily known to be true with certainty), and (2) shared
in common with the relevant political community.” Zelikow is
especially interested in “’searing’ or ‘molding’ events that take
on ‘transcendent’ importance and, therefore, retain their power
even as the experiencing generation passes from the scene.”55 He
co-authored a 1998 article in Foreign Affairs analyzing the likely
political, psychological, and cultural reaction to a massive Pearl
Harbor-style terrorist event such as the destruction of the World
Trade Center.56 How did he foresee the near future so accurately?
And why was a man with such a background, whose apparent
foreknowledge made him a potential suspect, put in charge of the

Other key neocon War on Terror architects include Paul
Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, Dick Cheney, Douglas Feith, Scooter
Libby, and Donald Rumsfeld—all members of Project for the New
American Century (PNAC), which called for a “New Pearl Harbor”
in a document issued in September, 2000. They insisted in that
document that the U.S. needed to drastically increase its military
budget, launch wars of aggression (euphemistically referred
to as “pre-emptive” wars) in the Middle East, remove Saddam
Hussein from power in Iraq, and adapt an aggressive new imperial
strategy. “The process of transformation is likely to be a long one,”
they wrote one year before 9/11, “absent some cataclysmic and
catalyzing event—like a New Pearl Harbor.”57
Was 9/11 a “New Pearl Harbor”?

Many scholars believe that President Franklin D. Roosevelt lied
about the alleged surprise attack on Pearl Harbor—and that the lie
was a justifiable “noble lie.” Before Pearl Harbor, American public
opinion was overwhelmingly against U.S. entry into the war. Pearl
Harbor, some believe, made it possible for the U.S.A. to defeat
Hitler. Did Roosevelt manipulate the Japanese with an eight-point
plan to force Japan to strike first so as to enrage the American
people and allow U.S. entry into the war? Did he know about the
attack beforehand and intentionally fail to prevent it? Did he make
it happen on purpose by way of the eight-point plan?58

Paul Wolfowitz, a student of Strauss and leading neocon
geopolitical strategist, has long been fascinated by the immense
strategic value of Pearl Harbor, which mobilized America for total
war. Wolfowitz has exhibited a lifelong obsession with a remark by
Albert Speer to the effect that if Germany had been blessed with a
Pearl Harbor it would have won World War II.59

If the official myth of the Pearl Harbor surprise attack is a lie, is
it a noble lie? Wolfwitz, and the other cult followers of Leo Strauss,
would undoubtedly say so.

The popular myth of the dastardly Japanese surprise attack
on Pearl Harbor, and the heroic American response, transformed
Americans’ understanding of themselves and their role in the
world. Before Pearl Harbor, Americans agreed that there should be
no standing army, and that George Washington’s foreign policy of
neutrality, non-alignment, and non-involvment in foreign quarrels
was the American way.60 That is why, on the eve of Pearl Harbor,
85% of Americans opposed entering World War II.

After Pearl Harbor, Americans accepted their new role as the
world’s policeman (some would say the world’s biggest bully).
A gigantic military-industrial complex mushroomed, and more
noble lies were told to gain the people’s consent. The negligible
military threat to the U.S. posed by the Soviet Union was wildly
exaggerated in order to pump up the military budget, and the
memory of the alleged sneak attack at Pearl Harbor fed Americans’
sense of vulnerability. In this way, an aggressive imperial strategy
was made to appear defensive. While pretending to be a purely
defensive power, the U.S. regularly threatened other nations with
the use of nuclear weapons.61 It launched illegal, unconstitutional
attacks on dozens of nations that posed no threat whatsoever, killing
millions of innocent people in the process in what one scholar of
U.S. empire, William Blum, has called “the American holocaust.”62

The Pearl Harbor myth changed history. It turned the U.S.A.
from a peace-loving nation into the world’s biggest and most
aggressive military empire. How did it exert such immense power?

To find out, the U.S. military hired anthropologist Bob
Deutch, one of the world’s leading experts in using focus
groups to understand and manipulate irrational popular beliefs.
Deutch discovered that Pearl Harbor shattered Americans’ sense
of invulnerability: “Because Japan disrupted America’s selfmythology
of being invincible, the nation would never be forgiven
in the irrational American sentiment.”63 Could those who hired
Deutch have concluded that a new Pearl Harbor, blamed on Arab
Muslims, could provide the kind of “searing or moulding event”
that would convince the American public to mobilize for wars on
behalf of oil and Israel?

Deutch discovered that at the deep psychological level, the
American public, like members of the Hells Angels motorcycle
gang, engages in aggression as a defense against a sense of
vulnerability and loss: “They are protecting themselves. That’s
what their core story is about. Images are created to defend loss,
not maximize gain.”64

Another U.S. military psychological expert, S.L.A. Marshall,
discovered just how fundamentally defensive and non-aggressive
human nature really is, and how powerfully people must be
psychologically manipulated if they are to go to war. After an
exhaustive study of that vast majority U.S. infantrymen and airmen
who, during World War II, covertly refused to kill, Marshall wrote
that “the average and healthy individual…has such an inner and
usually unrealized resistance towards killing a fellow man that he
will not of his own volition take life if it is possible to turn away
from that responsibility…At the vital point (the soldier) becomes
a conscientious objector.”65

Normal human beings only kill when
under direct threat and extreme duress, as a fear-and-anger-inspired
defensive response to an aggressor. To motivate a nation to engage
in military aggression—mass killing abroad—the people must be
brainwashed into believing that they are under attack.

Zbigniew Brezezinski, a leading U.S. foreign policy strategist,
notes that the U.S. public’s attitude toward the “external projection
of American power” is “ambivalent” and depends on the sort of fear
and vulnerability awakened by Pearl Harbor: “The public supported
America’s engagement in World War II largely because of the shock
effect of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.”66

Brezezinski’s useof the term “shock effect” recalls the thesis of Naomi Klein’s
The Shock Doctrine.67 According to Klein, individuals and even
whole societies can be forced to accept radical, unpleasant changes
by way of sudden shocks engineered, or taken advantage of, by
unscrupulous elites.

Brezezinski seemed to be calling for a shocking event like
9/11 and the War on Terror it spawned, when he wrote in 1997:
“Moreover, as America becomes an increasingly multicultural
society, it may find it more difficult to fashion a consensus on
foreign policy issues, except in the circumstances of a truly massive
and widely perceived direct external threat.”68

Hollywood, like Brezezinski, seemed to be preparing the
American public for 9/11. The run-up to 9/11 saw a rash of patriotic,
militaristic, apocalyptic films including the 135 million dollar
flop, Pearl Harbor.69 Most American-made action films feature an
American hero who is threatened by an evil foreigner, and whose
self-defense unfolds into extreme aggression that the audience is
taught to accept as legitimate. A grossly disproportionate number
of Hollywood’s evil foreigners are Arab or Muslim, including in
pre-9/11 films.70 Is this because Hollywood was founded as, and
remains, a Jewish enclave with a strong pro-Israeli bias? Or is it
because 80% of the world’s sweet, easily-extracted oil lies under
Arab and Muslim sand, even as an age of energy scarcity looms?71

Did 9/11 function as a “new Pearl Harbor” that mobilized
Americans for a aggressive war, disguised as a defensive one,
against Arab and Muslim countries? T.H. Meyer has called
attention to Donald Rumsfeld’s bizarre Pearl Harbor propaganda
campaign that had begun even before the Bush Administration
took office.72 Rumsfeld spent 2000 and 2001 carrying around
extra copies of Roberta Wohlstetter’s Pearl Harbor: Warning and
Decision, praising the book to the skies, and offering free copies to
journalists. (Wohlstetter’s hawkish Zionist husband Albert, named
in his obituary “the world’s most influential unknown figure of the
past half century,” was Wolfowitz’s mentor and Richard Perle’s
father-in-law.)73 Roberta Wohlstetter’s Pearl Harbor book, while
it ostensibly supports the official myth that Pearl Harbor was a
perfidious surprise attack, includes enough information to the
contrary to enlighten the discerning reader to the unspeakable
but implicitly acknowledged truth: The Roosevelt Administration
provoked the attacks, knew they were coming, and left thousands
of sailors in harm’s way as an offering to the gods of war.
Wohlstetter’s book is a perfect illustration of neocon doublespeak:
Tell a vivid, simplistic, emotionally-charged lie to the masses
(“Perfidious surprise attack! Heroic purple-fury response!”) yet
include as a subtle subtext the unspeakable truth that only the elite
is smart enough to discern and strong enough to handle: Roosevelt
sacrificed thousands of American lives to the greater good of
getting the U.S. into the war.

Rumsfeld’s pre-9/11 Pearl Harbor precognitions were echoed
on 9/11 itself. On Air Force One, as Bush flew from Florida to
Nebraska, the event was already being framed as a new Pearl
Harbor.74 Senator Chuck Hegel and Henry Kissinger quickly
echoed the Pearl Harbor comparison. Brezezinski himself
pronounced: “It (9/11) is more murderous even than Pearl Harbor,
and the psychological impact is the same.”75 On the evening of
September 11th, 2001, George W. Bush reportedly confided to his
diary: “The Pearl Harbor of the 21st century took place today.”76

Before the nano-thermite-laden dust77 that was all that was
left of the World Trade Center had cleared, the corporate media
were echoing the Pearl Harbor meme. Time Magazine wrote:
“What’s needed is a unified, unifying, Pearl Harbor sort of purple
American fury—a ruthless indignation that doesn’t leak away in
a week or two.”78 After 9/11 family members shamed a reluctant
administration into finally mounting an official investigation, the
9/11 Commission told us that 9/11 was just like Pearl Harbor
“except it wasn’t the Japanese, but it was al-Qaeda.”79

9 Thoughts to “Pearl Harbor Day Special! Thomas Kimmel on the KB Show, ONE HOUR EARLY!”

    I used to go whole Hog on Day of Deceit as if it were the 5th Gospel.

    My revisionist history got even more revised when I spent time looking at Tarpley's revised revision of Pearl Harbor, which posits a Churchill-allied cabal above and behind Roosevelt, which maneuvered the attack on Pearl Harbor to draw the US into Britain's shooting war — and thereby help weaken the US navy while also defeating the Germans.

    Stimson & George Marshall called out.

    Roosevelt thus becomes the "mark" — the target, the dupe, of the conspiracy. Still, the attack fulfils the False Flag / LIHOP paradigm.

    "Let's you and he fight" — Empire ain't dumb.

    > The truth is fully-documented in Robert Stinnett's Day of Deceit:

    As Aussies say, GOOD ON YOU(or rather, GOOD ON 'YA)!! Kevin.

    You know what?
    Tojo who was executed by the US as War Criminal #1 apparently said before his death something like, "I was responsible domestically(like towards Japanese people, making them endure the war and horrible state of lives etc I think) but I am not against outside world." I think he meant that he did what he had to?

    Along with some campaign started by the U$A(not your US) after the war to make Japanese believe the JP military was the cause of all the tragedy incl Hiroshima/Nagasaki.

    Again, as usual, there is/are some agents among those who talk about that campaign, but I believe it did affect the majority of Japanese way of thinking and seeing things – brainwashing! Agents are trying to make Japanese see it so that they'd want to have a real military(which we already have, though) so that we can have wars… but I believe we need to take a look at the history with correct information/facts, and then beat the Illuminati who planned all these wars for their personal gain.

    Anyhow, BEST OF LUCK for this show!
    I'll try and listen to its archive… could you send me the link later? ;o)

    Also, can you ever have Helen Thomas on your show?
    I think she's genuine.

    Mr. Barrett,
    I gotta tell ya, you are starting to lose me here.
    You are in danger of fading into the background and becoming a Cassandra. May I suggest that, instead of trying to prove ALL of your theories, you first establish some credibility with those who would otherwise be unwilling to listen to what you have to say and then take them progressively through the worldview that you are trying to disseminate?
    If you continue to approach this issue from every possible angle, I fear that you are doing a disservice to the cause of getting people to realize that things aren't all that they seem.

  4. Every possible angle?

    Pearl Harbor deception has been proved seven ways from Sunday. Even mainstream historians are converting in droves. Read Stinnett.

    And the Pearl Harbor deception was the model for 9/11. They even worked very hard to make sure they'd kill roughly the same number of people. See Barbara Honegger's work on the order to close off access to the Towers' roofs and call off helicopter rescue operations.

    The Pearl Harbor model is THE central angle for an honest historical account of 9/11.

    Hi Kevin – great stuff!

    Also note that Huey Long (the awesome American populist hero) would surely have been president, instead of Roosevelt, and would surely have kept the US out of WWII, if he had not been assassinated by a Zionist.

    Also note that Howard Armstrong, another awesome American patriot and hero, and the inventor of FM radio, was hounded to death and probably murdered, as he tried to keep radio the truly public and democratic medium it was supposed to be. David Sarnoff, head of RCA, was a Zionist prodigy, well-placed to manipulate and blackmail Guglielgo Marconi. With the help of Congress, RCA turned radio into a monopoly – just prior to WWII.

    If you’re interested in more information about the Zionist role in creating WWII, study the life stories of Huey Long and Howard Armstrong.

  6. Tarpley blew the "FDR is a traitor revisionist history" right out of the water!
    Thanks for having him on. That you let him have his say speaks highly of your journalistic integrity.

  7. I'm always interested in hearing Tarpley's take – he's brilliant, eloquent, erudite, and calls it like he sees it. That said, I still find Stinnett's arguments and evidence persuasive. Tarpley did not address most of the specific evidence cited by Stinnett. Instead, he argued that FDR was right in trying to bring the US into the war against the wishes of the American people, AND that specific foreknowledge of Pearl Harbor was hidden from FDR by the British and their agents/sympathizers in the US military. In other words, Tarpley seemed so suggest that FDR would have been right to provoke and allow Pearl Harbor if that was the only way to get the US into the war; but that he didn't do so because the Brits hid the intelligence from him. To judge the specifics of that argument, I'll have to read Rusbridger and Nave's "Betrayal at Pearl Harbor" etc. Based on what I know now, Stinnett's case is convincing.

    Well, 9/11 WAS a new Pearl Harbor cause they set that one up as well.

    Archive of this program is here
    (Below, purple high-light is mine)
    I'll listen to it hopefully tomorrow.

    We went to watch Harry Potter, only to see another Illuminati sign,
    Eye of Horus in a pyramid as expected…

  9. Webster Tarpley sent me an email headed "Stinnett copies Hitler's view of FDR: 'provocateur,' sole cause of WWII." The body of the message contained an extract from Germany’s Declaration of War Against the United States
    Hitler’s Reichstag Speech of December 11, 1941.

    My response:

    If WWI and WWII were two phases of the same war, it seems to me that the British were the real aggressors (since the 1914-1945 war was incited to preserve the world domination of the Anglosphere and the financiers who own it). Could it be that Hitler is telling more truth in this speech than FDR and Churchill ever told? Can you deny that Roosevelt was basically lying the whole time he was pretending he wanted to stay out of the war — while in this speech Hitler is basically telling the truth about FDR's lies? Isn't it way past time to re-think the official mythology of the Anglo-Jewish war to pre-emptively smash Germany that we falsely divide into two "world wars"? Maybe this, like most other conflicts, was not one in which one side — the stronger side that won and got to write history — had a monopoly on virtue?

    Webster, I think your admiration for FDR has forced you into a position of cognitive dissonance. Your defense of FDR on the Pearl Harbor issue boils down to "he didn't do it — and it's a good thing he did it!"
