Do Americans Live In A False Reality Created By Orchestrated Events?

Paul Craig Roberts

Most people who are aware and capable of thought have given up on what is called the “mainstream media.” The presstitutes have destroyed their credibility by helping Screen Shot 2016-02-29 at 11.27.39 AMWashington to lie—“Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction,” “Iranian nukes,” “Assad’s use of chemical weapons,” “Russian invasion of Ukraine,” and so forth. The “mainstream media” has also destroyed its credibility by its complete acceptance of whatever government authorities say about alleged “terrorist events,” such as 9/11 and Boston Marathon Bombing, or alleged mass shootings such as Sandy Hook and San Bernardino. Despite glaring inconsistencies, contradictions, and security failures that seem too unlikely to be believable, the “mainstream media” never asks questions or investigates. It merely reports as fact whatever authorities say.

The sign of a totalitarian or authoritarian state is a media that feels no responsibility to investigate and to find the truth, accepting the role of propagandist instead. The entire Western media has been in the propaganda mode for a long time. In the US the transformation of journalists into propagandists was completed with the concentration of a diverse and independent media in six mega-corporations that are no longer run by journalists.

As a consequence, thoughtful and aware people increasingly rely on alternative media that does question, marshall facts, and offers analysis in place of an unbelievable official story line.

The prime example is 9/11. Large numbers of experts have destroyed the official story that has no factual evidence in its behalf. However, even without the hard evidence that 9/11 truthers have provided, the official story gives itself away. We are supposed to believe that a few Saudi Arabians with no technology beyond box cutters and no support from any government’s intelligence service were able to outwit the massive surveillance technology created by DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) and NSA (National Security Agency) and deal the most humiliating blow to a superpower ever delivered in human history. Moreover, they were able to do this without the President of the United States, the US Congress, and the “mainstream media” demanding accountability for such a total failure of the high-tech national security state. Instead of a White House led investigation of such a massive security failure, the White House resisted for more than one year any investigation whatsoever until finally giving in to demands from 9/11 families that could not be bought off and agreeing to a 9/11 Commission.

The Commission did not investigate but merely sat and wrote down the story told to it by the government. Afterwards, the Commission’s chairman, co-chairman, and legal counsel wrote books in which they said that information was withheld from the Commission, that the Commission was lied to by officials of the government, and that the Commission “was set up to fail.” Despite all of this, the presstitutes still repeat the official propaganda, and there remain enough gullible Americans to prevent accountability.

Competent historians know that false flag events are used to bring to fruition agendas that cannot otherwise be achieved. 9/11 gave the neoconservatives, who controlled the George W. Bush administration, the New Pearl Harbor that they said was necessary in order to launch their hegemonic military invasions of Muslim countries. The Boston Marathon Bombing permitted a trial run of the American Police State, complete with shutting down a large American city, putting 10,000 armed troops and SWAT teams on the streets where the troops conducted house to house searches forcing the residents out of their homes at gunpoint. This unprecedented operation was justified as necessary in order to locate one wounded 19 year old man, who clearly was a patsy.

There are so many anomalies in the Sandy Hook story that it has generated a cottage industry of skeptics. I agree that there are anomalies, but I don’t have the time to study the issue and come to my own conclusion. What I have noticed is that we are not given many good explanations of the anomalies. For example, in this video made from the TV news coverage, the video’s creator makes a case that the person who is the grieving father who lost his son is the same person outfitted in SWAT clothes at Sandy Hook following the shooting. 

The person is identified as a known actor. Now, it seems to me that this is easy to test. The grieving father is known, the actor is known, and the authorities have to know who the SWAT team member is. If these three people, who can pass for one another, can be assembled in one room at the same time, we can dismiss the expose claimed in this one video. However, if three separate people cannot be produced together, then we must ask why this deception, which raises questions about the entire story. You can watch the entire video or just skip to the 9:30 mark and observe what appears to be the same person in two different roles.

The “mainstream media” has the ability to make these simple investigations, but does not. Instead, the “mainstream media” calls skeptics “conspiracy theorists.”

There is a book by Professor Jim Fetzer and Mike Palecek that says Sandy Hook was a FEMA drill to promote gun control and that no one died at Sandy Hook. The book was available on but was suddenly banned. Why ban a book?

Here is a free download of the book: I have not read the book and have no opinion. I do know, however, that the police state that America is becoming certainly has a powerful interest in disarming the public. I also heard today a news report that people said to be parents of the dead children are bringing a lawsuit against the gun manufacturer, which is consistent with Fetzer’s claim.

Here is a Buzzsaw interview with Jim Fetzer:

If the information Fetzer provides is correct, clearly the US government has an authoritarian agenda and is using orchestrated events to create a false reality for Americans in order to achieve the agenda.

It seems to me that Fetzer’s facts can be easily checked. If his facts check out, then a real investigation is required. If his facts do not check out, the official story gains credibility as Fetzer is one of the most energetic skeptics.

Fetzer cannot be dismissed as a kook. He graduated magna cum laude from Princeton University, has a Ph.D. from Indiana University and was Distinguished McKnight University Professor at the University of Minnesota until his retirement in 2006. He has had a National Science Foundation fellowship, and he has published more than 100 articles and 20 books on philosophy of science and philosophy of cognitive science. He is an expert in artificial intelligence and computer science and founded the international journal Minds and Machines. In the late 1990s, Fetzer was asked to organize a symposium on philosophy of mind.

For an intelligent person, the official stories of President Kennedy’s assassination and 9/11 are simply not believable, because the official stories are not consistent with the evidence and what we know. Fetzer’s frustration with less capable and less observant people increasingly shows, and this works to his disadvantage.

It seems to me that if the authorities behind the official Sandy Hook story are secure with the official story, they would jump on the opportunity to confront and disprove Fetzer’s facts. Moreover, somewhere there must be photographs of the dead children, but, like the alleged large number of recordings by security cameras of an airliner hitting the Pentagon, no one has ever seen them. At least not that I know of.

What disturbs me is that no one in authority or in the mainstream media has any interest in checking the facts. Instead, those who raise awkward matters are dismissed as conspiracy theorists.

Why this is damning is puzzling. The government’s story of 9/11 is a story of a conspiracy as is the government’s story of the Boston Marathon Bombing. These things happen because of conspiracies. What is at issue is: whose conspiracy? We know from Operation Gladio and Operation Northwoods that governments do engage in murderous conspiracies against their own citizens. Therefore, it is a mistake to conclude that governments do not engage in conspiracies.

One often hears the objection that if 9/11 was a false flag attack, someone would have talked.

Why would they have talked? Only those who organized the conspiracy would know. Why would they undermine their own conspiracy?

Recall William Binney. He developed the surveillance system used by NSA. When he saw that it was being used against the American people, he talked. But he had taken no documents with which to prove his claims, which saved him from successful prosecution but gave him no evidence for his claims. This is why Edward Snowden took the documents and released them. Nevertheless, many see Snowden as a spy who stole national security secrets, not as a whistleblower warning us that the Constitution that protects us is being overthrown.

High level government officials have contradicted parts of the 9/11 official story and the official story that links the invasion of Iraq to 9/11 and to weapons of mass destruction. Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta contradicted Vice President Cheney and the official 9/11 story timeline. Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill has said that overthrowing Saddam Hussein was the subject of the first cabinet meeting in the George W. Bush administration long before 9/11. He wrote it in a book and told it on CBS News’ 60 Minutes. CNN and other news stations reported it. But it had no effect.

Whistleblowers pay a high price. Many of them are in prison. Obama has prosecuted and imprisoned a record number. Once they are thrown in prison, the question becomes: “Who would believe a criminal?”

As for 9/11 all sorts of people have talked. Over 100 police, firemen and first responders have reported hearing and experiencing a large number of explosions in the Twin Towers. Maintanence personnel report experiencing massive explosions in the sub-basements prior to the building being hit by an airplane. None of this testimony has had any effect on the authorities behind the official story or on the presstitutes.

There are 2,300 architects and engineers who have written to Congress requesting a real investigation. Instead of the request being treated with the respect that 2,300 professionals deserve, the professionals are dismissed as “conspiracy theorists.”

An international panel of scientists have reported the presence of reacted and unreacted nanothermite in the dust of the World Trade Centers. They have offered their samples to government agencies and to scientists for confirmation. No one will touch it. The reason is clear. Today science funding is heavily dependent on the federal government and on private companies that have federal contracts. Scientists understand that speaking out about 9/11 means the termination of their career.

The government has us where it wants us—powerless and disinformed. Most Americans are too uneducated to be able to tell the difference between a building falling down from asymetrical damage and one blowing up. Mainstream journalists cannot question and investigate and keep their jobs. Scientists cannot speak out and continue to be funded.

Truth telling has been shoved off into the alternative Internet media where I would wager the government runs sites that proclaim wild conspiracies, the purpose of which is to discredit all skeptics.

Paul Craig Roberts is one of the most respected columnists in the alternative media. His syndicated articles can be seen on many leading alternative news websites including Lew Rockwell, Infowars, Counterpunch, InformationClearingHouse and countless others. Roberts scores huge points in the credibility department having been the former head of policy at the Department of Treasury under Reagan, and the editor of the Wall Street Journal — among a long list of other accolades. His research is impeccable and his vision of how the world really operates is second to none. He knows why and when the global chess pieces are moving, and has the incredible talent to communicate difficult concepts to the general public. He has written several books including The Tyranny of Good Intentions and How the Economy was Lost. His many interviews can be seen on Russia Today and Prison Planet TV. Roberts is also a recent contributor to Gerald Celente’s esteemed Trends Journal. There is no one better at reporting the reality of geo-political events and the workings of the Treasury and the Federal Reserve.

  1. Good article, Mr. Robert. And I highly suggest you do read the book. It answer the questions regarding that the official narrative of Sandy Hook and other Hollyweird events, and how much the American people are mind-raped on a daily basis.

    Bro. Nat, always has a point to ponder.

  2. The 9/11 Commission was a redux of the Warren Commission which validated the actions of a rogue MIL/INTEL coup of the American government.

    There was a real rise in mass shootings starting in the early 1980’s. Many of the economic and sociological aspects of workplace violence were investigated in books and films like Murder By Proxy: How America Went Postal (2010).

    That being said, a mobbing culture in the U.S., including community mobbing and gang stalking, brought about Columbine and other real tragedies that grew exponentially over the past generation.

    The answer of the U.S. government to this real problem was not to solve it, but rather, to use it for a gun control agenda. This agenda is necessary to maintain the tyranny over a population required by all police states. This is a purely reactionary response, in the vein of Problem Reaction/Solution. 9/11 used the same modus operandi directed outward to the world writ large.

    Sandy Hook, the Charleston Church shooting, and the Umpqua Community College shooting are some of the most farcical events in the government’s militarized Kabuki Theater. It is clear that there was a real rise in mobbing activities in workplaces, colleges, and communities across the U.S. that led to a real increase in episodes of mass violence. It is just as clear that the repeal of the Schmidt-Mundt Act, and, the government’s third-rate macabre theater events are designed for a gun grab prelude to a totalitarian state.These staged events are modeled on real world dynamic events, and, represent a Mafia-style hijacking by the government, using carefully managed and staged reproductions (i.e., bogus false flags) wholly for their own agenda (e.g., Project Longevity). Can a blackmailed Congress do anything about this before it is too late?

    1. There’s really no mystery involved in going postal, at least not to me. Bill Clinton got NAFTA passed, while at the same time pretending to be “on the side of the working man.” Ha! That POS has never worked a day in his life, unless you count trying to diddle every women you set eyes on as “work”.

      Anyway, between all the job losses and the fact that employment law is 99% voluntary compliance, it’s pretty obvious that people who can’t get justice from the system, will take matters into their own hands when they feel there’s nothing left to lose.

      But that doesn’t begin to explain what’s been happening under Obama – people just open fire and kill someone when they have no motive or even
      connection to them? I really don’t think so. That’s not human nature, that’s the way gun-control idiots think – “people go berserk and kill innocent strangers for no other reason than they had a gun – get rid of guns and we’ll all be safe!”

      Such idiocy!

  3. I don’t know. You can say Americans are lost in a false reality, but the truth is, it’s easier to take a stranger off the street and convince him that nobody died at Sandy Hook than to disabuse some of these “awakened ones” of their own superstition.

    1. Americans have been groomed to embrace a false reality. The “No Child Left Behind” is farcical considering the deliberate dumbing down of children in our public schools. Many children are home schooled to avoid bullying that is linked to mass shooting events. Home schooled children I have met have an even lower vocabulary and general education than those victims of California’s public schools. Reality T.V. is right out of Roman bread and circus in a time of rapid decline of empire. These badly under-educated victims are being groomed as cattle slaves for the corporate fascist state. They are ready to abandon their guns and constitutional rights. As I understand it, this same attitude of embracing the police state is evinced in students from surveys conducted at Yale and other Ivy League schools. Pathetic:

  4. I’ve been following Dr. Roberts for years and I’m glad to see MHB publishing his work. Not only does Dr. Roberts have impressive credentials, but I find his prose to be exceptionally clear and rational.

  5. Great, straight forward article.

    Everything that’s wrong is due to the fact we have No real Media/Journalist any longer and everyone at every level fears losing their job and pension.

      1. Haven’t done any digging on what he’s let out of the bag because I assume it’s simply part of ‘the reveal’. I’ll take your word on it at this point. Thanks for the holodomor site. I passed it on.

  6. The 9/11 Commission refused to question the key witness, the janitor with the key to all floors, William Rodriquez, who told us at the screening of his documentary that he waited in the corridors and they never called him. Why? Because he pulled burn victims from the sub basement of the WTC after explosions went off and before the planes hit. The grateful people he rescued are on his docu. He also heard weird noises on the empty floors that he later surmised were explosives being set by operatives. He also recalled that bomb sniffing dogs were removed from their patrol months before the event. The commission also was very light questioning Condi Rice, and that infuriated the Jersey Girls and Bob MacIIvaine.

    1. “The 9/11 Commission refused to question the key witness, the janitor with the key to all floors”

      Just like they Never questioned Rick Thorpe, Head janitor of Sandy Hook School and who witnessed the shootings AND was the first to call 911..Hmmmmm

      Maybe it’s a “Janitor” thing or they are all Lying?
      I’ll go with “they” just don’t like Janitors…..

    2. I haven’t seen this evidence-you say the janitor states for the record bombs went off BEFORE the planes hit? I would like a reference if you have one
      thank you

  7. Paul Craig no doubt elaborates on many things that are true, very rarely something I don’t already know beforehand and always blames it on Washington. He carries on as if the shadow government does not exist, all countries are sovereign and the vote counts. It doesn’t.

    His pic behind him is not inspiring as it shows the hidden masonic hand. He is definitely masonic and was part of the Reagan government which tripled the national debt, killed several million Vietnamese and poisoned millions more with dioxin. It also propped up Rios Monte the Israeli general who was responsible for killing 20,000 Mayan indians in Guatemala.

    I don’t disagree with much of what he says, only who he is pointing the finger at. So in the final analysis, I consider him a limited hangout.

    1. Vietnam War over ’75, Reagan took over in ’80. Math major?

      You failed to mention how long he was with the Reagan administration. Conveniently.

      How do you tell he is Masonic? Did he make Reagan’s decisions for him? Should an economist be blamed for wars of imperialism?

      Would you much rather see him lambaste the Khazarians? Was he smart or stupid to omit mention them? What would he have to gain?

      Were I you, I’d write him very soon and tell him you can read his mind, he knows nothing more than you know, and he should have brought in far more extraneous factors.
      Plus, you failed to blame Roberts for the Iran Contra scandal. You are losing your touch.

      He’d probably not call you a limited hangout, he’d likely just call you “limited”.

      Are you reprehensor?

      1. Gil this is not my first rodeo, I will be 71 on march.

        What is ironic is Paul Craig the tool speaking about orchestrated events he in turn is trying to orchestrate. A leopard doesn’t change it’s spots, they just go on to higher level paying jobs after the last one. This time with Paul … a truth teller. He is syndicated but not high level. He is carried by the usual suspects in the media.

        All the world’s a stage,
 And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances, 
And one man in his time plays many parts

        William Shakespeare’


        “You will best benefit yourself by keeping an open mind and forgetting most of what you have learned in the past.” Jay Sebring

        1. Name ONE journalist with a better reputation than Paul Craig Roberts. Name a stronger patriot.

          Your implication that you know as much as he does is poppycock. If you expect him to know everything, we need you to hold to that same requirement, also.

          But he’s disinfo…….. is this deliberate disinfo, accidental disinfo, non-intended disinfo?

          How about your disinfo?To what standard do we hold you?

      2. And for your information the “alternative” media knows reagan is a pedophile. His own daughter refused to speak to him for years before he died.

        I won’t try and leave you links but there hundreds concerning rent boys in the white house etc. Reagan was a pedophile and anyone associated with him in my books is suspect. Those associated with it, well they always find them a job somewhere down the road. Paul Craig is one of them.

        Reagan was groomed by his first Jane Wyman, one of the eternal victims. He knew what to say, it was funneled to him. “Let’s pave Vietnam”. He was an actor playing his most important role. But hey if you believe the current crock of political jargon presented to you, more power to you. Don’t expect me to however.

  8. Paul Craig Roberts never takes on the jewish syndicate. For years he blamed ‘hubris’ in Washington for ‘mistakes’. Baloney. I don’t pay any attention to him.
    Here is someone who has many interesting things to say regarding our ‘elder brothers in faith’.

  9. Interesting concerns, thank you. I’ll warn that the process of disinformation is necessary much wider than described. Just to take the example of 9/11:
    * foreign mass media could properly report on it, especially in areas targeted for U.S.-led military operations;
    * history textbook writers could properly describe 9/11 as the false flag that it is;
    * Muslim potentates and opinion-makers could leverage 9/11 to improve Islam’s image and dampen western enthusiasm for U.S. military operations in strategically valuable Muslim areas.
    * technical organizations could have made 9/11 fall flat in a few weeks by simply informing their members of the self-evident controlled demolitions;
    * not a single TV channel, anywhere in the world, has ever aired an inexpensive and riveting documentary on “the little office fire that could” disintegrate Building 7 in a way so reminiscent of a controlled demolition.

    Accordingly, analysts who wish to fix and save the world ought to focus less on the particulars of one category of obfuscators (like the U.S. mass media), more on estimating the size of the disinformation process, and especially on determining whether it encompasses the vast majority of opinion-makers, worldwide, permanently, and in all disciplines. Such a finding would give Plato’s cave a new and very down-to-Earth meaning. It may even lead to some resolution. But this is another story.


    1. Our friend on Greenwich St which is above the park facing 7 saw an entire row of windows light up with flashes – explosives going off. Then she saw the building collapse in its own footprint. So the office fire story is nonsense.

  10. Reblogged this on THE ONENESS of HUMANITY and commented:

    What are the odds that the “awkward matters” articulated in this hard-hitting article by Mr. Paul Craig Roberts become included in reports forthcoming from the corporate media? An even more, perhaps the most important, question the article raises: “Will any of the candidates running for President of the United States 2016, or any elected representative in the United States Congress, comment in any manner whatsoever – either affirming or denying the serious allegations put forth – on these extremely disturbing points of contention?”

    1. I suspect what Paul Roberts doesn’t know is dwarfed by what Dublinsmick doesn’t know. It’s a favored trick of Mick to repeatedly omit the vast number of positives to one such as Paul Roberts and accentuate negatives that are most likely in the far smaller fraction of the two categories. I know some 4th grade dropouts who insist college graduates are totally stupid and can’t tie their shoes. The dropouts can, indeed, tie their shoes but nothing else…..
      Mick, ever hear of a balanced presentation when qualifying/quantifying an individual’s total cerebral horsepower? You sound so much like an unwashed rube at times.

  11. Paul Craig Roberts is, or has been, a popular fellow over at OpEdNews.

    This article of his actually appeared there, albeit along with the notification that the author did not wish to allow comments on it.

    I used to be a commenter at OpEdNews before getting booted. I actually lasted a couple of years there!

    OpEdNews is a notoriously cheesy (ie., phoney) ‘alternative’ site that I rejected immediately (as cheesy and precipitously phoney) when I first viewed it.

    Only after getting booted from a number of other ‘alternative’ sites, did I start my commenting career there.

    Though I insist it was better when I was there, due to the number of people who dwelled there and were somewhat aware or slightly aware of my subtle tinkerings while I performed my work as ‘commenter’, it is and was and always will be, of course, a very cheesy and phoney site.

    If Paul Craig Robersts leaves the company of the OpEdNews team, then we will perhaps know, he is at least, started to get warm.

    He is, in my opinion, a kind of Jim Fetzer lite. He is no Miles Mathis, quite obviously.

      Rob Kall: The Petty Tyrant of OpEdNews

      by Jim Fetzer

      Something seriously not right about OpEd News. Dr. Fetzer fell out with them some time ago.

      Lefty’s generally do not like too much false event truth. Same for extreme Right wing.

      I like to read Dr. Roberts for his outlook on world – geopolitical matters.

      He never has had it right about 9-11.

      He sticks to the original diversionary 9-11 truthers –

      explosive nanothermite

      Real planes hit the towers.

      = Destruction observed

      Does not make a lick of sense.

      I notice Dr. Roberts avoids all but the most superficial comments about Sandy Hook saying he did not study it at all. Yet, at least, for the first time, a major alternative commentator dares to comment at all about Sandy Hook.

  12. I discovered an unbelievably elaborate false reality when I was researching Kevin Scott King and came across the “rediscovered” Trivium Education “syllabus” – the very first thing I thought was “trivia is my life, and it simply isn’t possible that I never heard of this, I’m 53 YO.

    So I looked at it harder, and the first few websites I visited were Borat caliber parody – a lot of people would see it as a genuine effort by ignorant christian fundamentalists to recreate the “superior” education method of the Dark Ages. (The obvious joke being that the period represents a retardation of educational method, ho ho, ha ha.)

    So I tried to figure out who could possibly do such a thing, and remembered there was a George Mason professor who had his students prank wiki. I don’t if he’s really behind it, but go read the reviews for “sister Miriam Joseph’s” The Trivium: The Liberal Arts Of Logic, Grammar And Rhetoric at Amazon.

    It’s all tongue in cheek, very dry humor. But it’s as phony as a $9 bill.

    1. What drivel. Read Regine Pernoud’s Those Terrible Middle Ages! (, and you will find out that everything you think you know about that period is false. It was probably the best time/place in history.

      Education, since the Prussian system was adopted, has systematically made us stupider. The average person has been successfully groomed to be an idiot. I’m afraid, Robert, you are an exemplar.
