Paris conference on hold; new book project underway

I have been informed by Professor Hatem Bazian that the Paris Conference is likely being cancelled and, in the event it does take place, my paper will no longer be accepted – all this due to the 11/13 attacks. Unfortunately I already purchased a plane ticket.

So I will either:

(1) (in the event I can get a refund, either from Hatem or from the airline) use the money raised for this project toward a new book (see above);


(2) go to Paris anyway and read the paper in front of cameras outside the venue as a protest.

Meanwhile, I will be emailing donors to solicit their views on how I should respond to these new and unfortunate circumstances.

12 Thoughts to “Paris conference on hold; new book project underway”

  1. Now this is interesting! A false flag is just about the only explanation that makes sense. It seems that even "Islamic Extremists" would get that this type of attack is about as effective at winning hearts and minds as if George Washington would have attacked local churches, etc, in order to convince Americans that a constitutional form of government was better that sticking with king George. Just stay out of small, single engine aircraft. Bernie Sanders should do the same, after what he said in his speech at Georgetown – regarding Democratic Socialism. I would love to see your new book when it comes out.

    I think I know how to solve the worlds problems!!!!! All we have to do is make it mandatory for every student to be required to read a few of Noam Chomsky's books while still young enough to not be totally remade by their parents, government, and peers, into brain-dead, red-necked, flag-waving morons (Say Kindergartners). Then give them a list of other such authors, websites, etc, so that they could have plenty of time to study for their college entrance exam, which would cover such topics as found in the list.

    Wow! I can't believe it was that simple! What do you and other readers think?????

    Any comments on the plan from, that billionaire idiot, to require all Muslims to register – like Jews in Germany? How about that proposed legislation to deny immigration to Syrians?

    Here is a good list:

    I think that before we start discussing politics, we should all brush up on our Noam Chomsky, Chris Hedges, Rebecca Roth, Michael Parenti, Bonnie Faulkner, Alison Weir, Jeremy Scahill, Kevin Barrett, Gregory Noory, Friedrich Nietzsche, Helen Caldicott, Naomi Wolf, Henry Giroux, Edward Said,  Vandana Shiva, Gore Vidal, Bill Moyers, Matt Taibbi, Joel Wallach, Arundhati Roy, not to mention Poncho Threetrees, etc. (If we are to have any chance at all, we must look to alternative authors, books, websites, etc.; instead of the status quo propaganda outlets that keep us ignorant and wrong.)
    If everyone in this country (who ISN'T fooled by the Conservative, Right Wing, Fascist, Corporate agenda that we have been on for as long as anyone can remember) would just write one email, email flyer, or email chain letter, etc. every week, to a few friends, relatives, enemies, or someone and send 1 or 2 dollars every month to some organization that is trying to do something in the effort to wake up the naive citizens, maybe something would change, and we can reverse the idiocies mentioned in Thomas Frank's “What's The Matter With Kansas”. IT WOULD BE A START! Remember: It's not “Speaking truth to power”. It's “Speaking truth about power”, covertly or anonymously. (C.Y.A.)

    Dear Dr. Barrett:

    I agree with your comments given to Press TV regarding Donald Trump's recent statements about 9/11 celebrating terrorists.

    One thing I'm not sure about is whether Trump was thinking about the three dancing Israelis who were seen celebrating in New Jersey by various witnesses, or whether he was remembering the video footage of Palestinians allegedly "celebrating" the 9/11 attacks that was repeatedly shown on TV. (Some have said the footage actually showed Palestinians celebrating something else, such as a football game, and the networks played a dirty trick and made it out to be a celebration of 9/11.)

    Since Trump spoke of "thousands" of celebrators, I think it's more likely he was remembering the "celebrating Palestinians" rather than the dancing Israelis.

    In either case, I'm going to try to contact the Trump campaign to say it was all a set-up, and that Israel was behind 9/11.

    How can someone with such a weird name be so right on?
    This is really worth a read. It just about sums the problem up:

    Americans are the most lied to, naïve, and – unfortunately – patriotic people on earth. Maybe, just being exposed to the above type of ideas, will be good for them.

  7. Muslims, Muslims, Muslims, jihad, jihad, jihad, terrorist, terrorist, terrorist… That's all you here in the news, especially on public radio. This is the best thing that ever happened – for the government, elites, military industrial complex. They finally have their replacement for the USSR boogieman. Muslims, kiss your asses good-bye! Better think of a way to counter the propaganda war against you, instead of just keeping your heads down, mouths shut, and wringing your hands and apologizing every 15 minutes. Get your pens and keyboards out!!! Like my karate teacher used to say: If you're attacked, do something!

    I like the idea of being pro-active, but not just apologizing or trying to tell everyone that Islam is a religion of peace, etc. that's too old hat, and doesn't get any results. Maybe exposing the lies via an EMAIL CHAIN LETTER, with attachment to some video by Chomsky or someone else like that, would be a good idea. some reference to an alternative website, book, program, etc. If you send a chain letter to two persons, and each of the recipients does the same, after 20 times, you will have over one million letters floating around. Send them to your kids teachers, the mailman, etc. Forget congressmen, newspapers, etc. You have to reach real, regular, people! This is the first step. After you have done this, you will have a base of awakened individual citizens. Right now, all you have are sheep, totally brainwashed by mass media propaganda. Anyway, that's my input.

    Probably better not to publish this, but if you want to go ahead.

    I am not a Muslim, but I am part Lebanese. I have had experience being the "Other" all of my life. I love beer, broads, and BBQ Pork, so I am seldom mistaken for a Muslim. Most people think I am a Mexican.. I hate listening to these idiots talk about how evil Muslims are and how they all are terrorists, etc. On my own, I have spent several years trying to light a fire under the Muslims, to stop accepting these false flag operations as gospel truth, and at least question what they hear about Muslims. Muslims are the first to believe the worst about Muslims. I think that Muslims must be afraid of Muslims. Anyway, trying to get them to do anything to defend themselves is impossible. I can't see how you actually write about the subjects you do and be a Muslim – more power to you. I am at the point where I don't give a rats arce if the government rounds up the whole lot of them and puts them in Guantanamo. They will not defend themselves, so what do they expect? Do they expect for everyone to defend them but them? People like Mike Rivero of, and you have been leading the fight to defend them and question 911, etc., for years. Do the Muslims give him, or you any help? Muslims make Uncle Tom look like Malcolm X. Why are they such pussies? Even Thumper – the rabbit – will bite back if cornered. I must admit that I have seen some Muslims hold hands and sing Gumbya, but that's even a rarity. Things are getting so fucked up for them now that even a retard can see where it will end. If I see someone being beaten by a bully, I want to – and do – step in, but if I see the same person in the same situation over and over again, and doing nothing, I begin to think that he is taking advantage of ME!

    Anyway, WTF are Muslims waiting for? I don't advocate violence, but I do hope for some type of action. Some idea or action to try to open the eyes and fight the propaganda against them. If not for themselves, then for their children's sake, and for the sake of all the innocent victims of the violence that they could have stopped against their fellow Muslims.

    Hi Kevin,

    I just did some googling about Muslims celebrating 9/11, and the impression I get is that it is a real stretch for Trump to not apologise for the claim. Instead, he extends it by saying there were Muslim celebrations all over the globe.

    Why is he doing it?

    This has not hurt him in the polls. For the usual reasons. In sum, he has temporarily gained from it. Still, a stretched-truth like this has its costs.

    But, according to the reading of Trump that I sent you the other day, this is for an ulterior motive — or, at least, an additional motive. Here it a preview of what that is: website lists the Israeli spies arrested on 911 as # 3 trending story

    The anti-Muslim energy into which organised Jewry has invested so much is being used directly by Trump, but when eventually the truth is ready to be processed through the various channels of justice, the focus of that energy will have shifted to the leaders of Jewry themselves. What would it take to save the neocons once a sincere probe of 9/11 got underway? Trump will need the energy generated here — by admittedly nasty means — to be able, once he comes to power, to overthrow the forces that are so solidly entrenched in America. Once the theme of dangerous Muslims is seriously pursued, the topic naturally changes from Muslims to dangerous groups to Jews. Fair is fair. The data-base idea, while directed at Muslims, has got by almost without fuss.

    It is not a coincidence that he is also consciously targeting China for its economic policies. That is at the expense of the other interest of organised Jewry, high finance, that has de-industrialised America for the benefit of selling to it from China, hollowing out America the better to take it over. The project of de-industrialisation has been going on for decades, as a Judean theme, and only the Larouche people covered it at one time. (If you Google on the EIR website you will come up with some very prescient material going back to 1980. See this, especially the last item on page 5 (cut-off). For whatever reason, the Larouchites never come close to saying "Jew" — it's always "Venetian" or some such absurdity.)

    In sum, Trump is taking on the American deep state. If he wins, the world will rate him even above Putin.

    Hate for Muslims will never die. The magic of propaganda is that, even when all the news, false flags, false witnesses, etc. are exposed, the hate and fear that these things created are already permanently in the paradigms of the people.
