America: A Land Without Truth

Paul Craig Roberts – paulcraigroberts.org Sept 20, 2019

It has been 17 days since a four-year study of the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 by civil engineers was made available to the media.  The study concluded that fire was not the cause of the collapse of the 47-story building.  The study also concluded that “the collapse of WTC 7 was a global failure involving the near-simultaneous failure of every column in the building.”  https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2019/09/04/the-official-story-of-the-collapse-of-wtc-building-7-lies-in-ruins/

In other words, the study concludes that the building was intentionally destroyed by controlled demolition.  Controlled demolition means that there was a plan to destroy the building and that access to the building inhabited by a number of US security agencies was permitted in order to wire the building for demolition.  This finding is consistent with what the owner of the World Trade Center, Silverstein, said on television, that the decision was made “to pull” the building.

To pull a building means to bring it down by controlled demolition.  Later, Silverstein tried to retract his admission and claimed that he meant the decision was made to pull the firemen out of the building, but according to reports no firemen were in the building as the fires were not regarded as of any consequence.

After 17 days, the report of the civil engineering team remains unmentioned in the American media except for a local Alaska TV station and a local Alaska newspaper.  The report went straight into the Memory Hole.  The vast majority of the American people will never know that the information has been kept from them.

The pile of lies that constitutes American awareness is very high. Indeed, it is as high as the hundred-story twin towers: the lies about Gaddafi and Libya, Saddam Hussein’s “weapons of mass destruction,” “Assad’s use of chemical weapons,” the Taliban, Osama bin Laden, Yemen, Pakistan, China, Russian invasions, World War II, World War I, Vietnam War, overthrows of Latin American governments, Ukraine, Spanish/American war, and on, and on.

All of these lies have been exposed, but the facts have been kept from the vast majority of Americans.  Historians such as Howard Zinn in his book, A People’s History of the United States, and Oliver Stone and Peter Kuznick in their book, The Untold History of the United States, attempted to make Americans more aware of the false reality in which they live, but the small number of voices on the side of truth are simply overwhelmed by a massive propaganda machine.

The reason for the dim future that the United States faces is that explanations are controlled by elites in the interest of their agendas.  There is no independent media except on the Internet, and that media is being overwhelmed by the numerous elite-sponsored websites.

Many Americans are too mentally and emotionally weak to come to grips with the possibility that the events of September 11, 2001, were a false flag attack orchestrated in order to serve agendas hidden from the American people.  They are much more comfortable not to look at the evidence and simply dismiss it as a “conspiracy theory.”

The families of those killed in the twin towers made a stink about the unexplained total failure of US national security.  No one was held accountable for the amazing security breaches and dysfunction of the national security state.  Washington tried to buy off the families with money, but only partially succeeded. The “Jersey Girls” helped to rally impacted families.  After one year of stonewalling their demands for an investigation, the White House finally agreed to a political investigation and appointed the 9/11 Commission, which avoided a forensic investigation.

In contrast to the families who lost members in the twin towers, I have never heard anything about a similar organization of families of those who died in the hijacked airliners.  Perhaps they are included in the 9/11 Family Steering Committee.  If so, they must have been silent members.  I have not come across any sign of them demanding explanations.  It is almost as if they don’t exist.

Those who know that they have been lied to about Septermer 11, 2001, are still trying to get truthful answers.  A report on their latest efforts can be found here:  https://www.globalresearch.ca/911-truth-justice-18-years-after-the-attacks/5689203

  1. If Silverstein gave the order to blow up Tower 7 then he probably gave the order to blow up the Twin Towers too.

  2. Because the corporate media is owned by je w s.

  3. The United States, like Israel with their fairy tale of a Jewish holocaust in WW2, have painted themselves into a corner from the constant lies. These two states must now come with evermore lies to sustain the unsustainable. Eventually the roof will cave in and these countries, with their ongoing war criminality, will go down as the most hated in history. The further the United States continues with the 9/11 lie, the further they sink into the morass.

  4. “All of these lies have been exposed, but the facts have been kept from the vast majority of Americans….but the small number of voices on the side of truth are simply overwhelmed by a massive propaganda machine.”

    The Americans could know if they wanted to. If I, an ordinary person could find out what is really going on, could educate myself, could find out the information, so could everyone else. Why are the propagandized people not curious about what is behind the scenes?

  5. This is another great piece by Paul Craig Roberts. Truth from a man whose word should carry some weight by those who consider themselves “conservative” or “Republicans” as the guy worked in the administration of their hero, Ronald Reagan.

    “Many Americans are too mentally and emotionally weak to come to grips with the possibility that the events of September 11, 2001, were a false flag attack…”…I was thinking something similar the whole time I was reading this article; that Americans are too intellectually and morally lazy to be much more than gullible fucking morons.

    Roberts continued about Americans, stating, “They are much more comfortable not to look at the evidence and simply dismiss it as a “conspiracy theory.”. My experience is I get the attention of an audience when I speak of the 9/11 mainstream narrative being bullshit, because I was there at ground zero working in the rescue effort, which I can verify with them, so it seems to earn me some respect and deference for a time as I literally breathed in a piece of every single 9/11 murder victim in New York, so they hear me out for a while about what I saw firsthand and what I know. But then most of them just bury their ignorant heads back in the sand as the truth is too disturbing to their very limited worldview. It is especially troubling for the military meatheads I try to enlighten, as they can’t bear to think they’ve been suckered into murdering for a huge lie. But that’s tough shit for them and I will never stop pushing 9/11 truth and spreading the word Jews played a huge part in the attacks.

    I have to agree with Ellis Taylor’s comment above, as it seems fingering the Jews and Israel for their roles in 9/11 is a litmus test for how truthful a “truther” actually is.

    They are all aware of the facts.

    But a bloodthirsty people will always crave blood.

    They claim to be against the wars. But they’ve been claiming that for decades. And yet the wars go on. They like war. They like flexing their muscles. And they like how they get treated when visiting third world countries.

    That’s why they will always secretly support all the wars their governments wage. That receipt of entitlement and that exchange rate.
