Political Theater in Charlottesville
Faux Terrorism in Three Acts Produced by Leftist Zealots
“The strongest reason for the people to retain their right to keep and bear arms is as a last resort to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”
Act I: A torch-lit protest around the statue of Thomas Jefferson on the campus of the University of Virginia, designed to draw the attention of the nation for the events the following day;
Act II: Local police stand down so VA State Police and National Guard could channel peaceful protesters of the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee into a violent confrontation with Antifa and Black Lives Matter;
Act III: At an intersection several blocks away, the actors were set and the vehicles in place to film dramatic—and carefully contrived—video footage.
The objective was to transform Donald Trump (who wants to reallocate American resources from the Middle East to benefit the American people by putting “America First!”)—by successive stages in a semantic sleight-of-hand—into a White Nationalist, into a White Supremacist, into a neo-Nazi, and to promote the unraveling of American culture by an assault upon our history through the removal of icons of the past and an excess of “political correctness.”
The key players in this staged event turned out to be George Soros, who financed the event, Executive Producer; Terry McAuliffe, Governor of Virginia, Director, who controlled the National Guard and the VA State Police; Michael Signer, Mayor of Charlottesville, Assistant Director, who ordered the local police to stand down; Richard Spencer and Jason Kessler, who impersonated White Nationalist leaders to give the event a neo-Nazi flavor; Brennan Gilmore, a U.S. State Department operative who appears to have served with the CIA in Africa, Witness; Ford Fischer, as the On-scene Videographer; with Antifa, Black Lives Matter and stuntmen as Extras.
Left-wing zealots not only produced the Charlottesville event but others, such as Angela Rye, a former executive with the Black Congressional Caucus, has called for the removal of all monuments—from George Washington to Thomas Jefferson to Robert E. Lee—which would disfigure our nation’s capital. Even the United Nations has called for the suppression of freedom of speech under the First Amendment, claiming that America must not allow Constitutional Rights to be “misused” to promote “hate speech.” Charlottesville was designed and continues to be promoted to change what it means to be an American and to subvert our rights under the United States Constitution. We had better be paying attention!

Kevin Barrett, Ph.D., an American Muslim and Islamic Studies scholar, is one of America’s best-known critics of the War on Terror. A specialist in North African Studies and Sufism, his career underwent a sudden shift in 2006, when Wisconsin state legislator Steve Nass and 60 Republican colleagues demanded he be fired from his teaching position at the University of Wisconsin-Madison due to remarks he made on Jessica McBride’s WTMJ radio show characterizing 9/11 as a false flag operation. Although UW-Madison initially refused to fire him and his students gave him high marks, the witch-hunt created an un-erasable Internet “paper trail” that left him “politically unemployable,” as whistleblowers on two hiring committees, including Dr. Howard Ross at U.W.-Whitewater, have observed. Since then Dr. Barrett has authored and edited several books, including Truth Jihad (2007), 9/11 and American Empire, Vol. 2 (2007), Questioning the War on Terror (2008), We Are NOT Charlie Hebdo (2015), ANOTHER French False Flag (2016) and Orlando False Flag (2016). He has edited and translated From Yahweh to Zion by Laurent Guyenot (forthcoming 2018). Dr. Barrett has appeared many times on Fox, CNN, PBS and other broadcast outlets. He has inspired feature stories and op-eds in The New York Times, The Christian Science Monitor, the Chicago Tribune, and other mainstream publications. He also authored the first three mainstream American newspaper op-eds (in The Capital Times of Madison, Wisconsin) calling 9/11 an inside job, and organized Dr. David Ray Griffin’s April 2005 talk at UW-Madison nationally telecast on C-SPAN. A former teacher at colleges and universities in Paris, the San Francisco Bay Area, and Wisconsin, Dr. Barrett currently works as author, talk radio host, False Flag Weekly News host, editor at Veterans Today, and international TV pundit. His website is TruthJihad.com.
Scott Bennett, a U.S. Army Special Operations Officer (11th Psychological Operations Battalion, Civil Affairs-Psychological Operations Command), and global psychological warfare-counterterrorism analyst, was formerly with defense contractor Booz Allen Hamilton. He received a direct commission as an Army Officer, held a Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmentalized Information (TS/SCI) security clearance, and worked in the highest levels of international counterterrorism in Washington D.C. and MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida. He developed and managed psychological warfare theories, products, and operations for U.S. Special Operations Command, U.S. Central Command, the State Department Coordinator for Counterterrorism, and other government agencies. He served in the George W. Bush Administration from 2003 to 2008 and was a Social Science Research Fellow at the Heritage Foundation. His book, Shell Game (2015) exposes the involvement of government elements in secret Swiss bank terrorist finance operations for 9/11, which he uncovered with the help of Union Bank of Switzerland whistleblower, Brad Birkenfeld. He has communicated with over 100 federal Representatives, Senators, senior military officers and Pentagon officials, and journalists about the scandalous abuses of power and deception being employed against the American people by its own military/intelligence community; and filed legal action against Booz Allen Hamilton and the Department of Defense for their involvement in secret Swiss bank terrorist finance operations. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Advertising with a Spanish minor from San Jose State in California, a Master’s in International Business and Public Policy from George Mason University in Virginia, and a Ph.D. (ABD) in Political Theory from the Catholic University of America in Washington D.C. He resides in California.
Ole Dammegård, recipient of the 2016 Prague Peace Prize and an expert on “false flag” operations and international assassinations, has spent more than 30 years solving major murder mysteries like the assassinations of JFK and the Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme, which has turned out to be a very dangerous task and has cost the lives of two dear friends. His two-volume work, Coup d’etat in Slow Motion / Statskupp i Slowmotion, provides an intense study of one of the biggest murder investigations in modern history (with some 900 pages with lots of photos, documents, detailed maps and images). What is still claimed to be “the deed of a madman” has turned out to have its roots within the international military complex and world finance at the highest level. The book has been called a true “Bomb of Truth.” His extensive research has revealed unexpected links to other political events, such as the deaths of RFK, John Lennon, Che Guevara, Salvador Allende, and Pablo Neruda as well as the sinking of MS Estonia, which killed almost 1,000 people. His other works include Shadow of Tears, Re-Mind Me, The Elusive Enigma, A Global Tour of Terror (Parts I-II), and the children’s book, Yolanda Yogapanda.
Dr. Eowyn, Ph.D., professor emeritus of political science at a U.S. university and author of university press books and countless peer-reviewed articles, maintains the website, fellowshipoftheminds.com, where more than 80 articles on Sandy Hook are archived. She features blogs on black racism, the Boston Marathon bombing, Christianity, conspiracies and “false flags”, U.S. corruption, creation, 2012-16 elections, health, finance and fiscal security, illegal immigration/refugees, Internet hoaxes and bugs, Islam, left-wing pathology, the Orlando gay-club massacre, the police state and the New World Order, the Sandy Hook shooting, St. Michael’s prayer against evil and the Obama chronicles. Her current series on Hillary’s health issues is simply sensational. She contributed three chapters to Nobody Died at Sandy Hook (2015), another to And Nobody Died in Boston, either (2016) and two to From Orlando to Dallas and Beyond (2016). She has taken an avid interest in the events in Charlottesville, which have been used to justify the removal of statues and monuments across the nation and to vilify those who want to preserve these icons of American history as racists and neo-Nazis, where the liberal left has remained silent in the face of adversity.
Greg Felton, a former newspaper editor and columnist, is now a freelance Canadian political analyst and investigative journalist specializing in Middle Eastern, Canadian and “Isramerican” politics as well as media censorship and disinformation. He has won several awards for opinion writing and reporting and is the author of two books: The Host & the Parasite: How Israel’s Fifth Column Consumed America (now in an updated, third post-Obama edition) and Exploding Middle East Myths: 15 Years of Fighting Zionist Propaganda. In 1993, he served as an interpreter and analyst for CTV News during the Vancouver Summit between President Bill Clinton and Soviet President Boris Yeltsin. For the 2011 “Vancouver Hearings” on the 9/11 attacks, Greg was co-host and guest speaker on the role Israel played in the attack. He frequently provides his insights and analyses on Internet radio shows like The Raw Deal with Dr. Jim Fetzer and Truth Jihad Radio with Dr. Kevin Barrett. Greg holds a Master’s degree in political science from the University of British Columbia and speaks French, Russian and Mandarin and resides near Vancouver with his wife and son and maintains a personal website at gregfelton.com.
Jim Fetzer, Ph.D., a former Marine Corps officer, earned his doctorate in the history and philosophy of science. He has published widely on the theoretical foundations of scientific knowledge, computer science, artificial intelligence, cognitive science, and evolution and mentality. McKnight Professor Emeritus at the University of Minnesota Duluth, he has also conducted extensive research into the assassination of JFK, the events of 9/11, the plane crash that killed Senator Paul Wellstone, Sandy Hook, the Boston Marathon bombing and more recent politically-significant events. The founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth, his latest books include The Place of Probability in Science with Ellery Eells (2010), Nobody Died at Sandy Hook (2015), And I Suppose we didn’t go to the Moon, either? (2015), And Nobody Died in Boston, either (2016), From Orlando to Dallas and Beyond (2016), America Nuked on 9/11 (2016) and (most recently), JFK: Who, How and Why (2017), which is his fourth collection of expert studies on the assassination of our 35th President, following Assassination Science (1998), Murder in Dealey Plaza (2000) and The Great Zapruder Film Hoax (2003).
David R. “Dave” Gahary, born and raised in New Jersey, enlisted in the U.S. Navy at 19 and served aboard the USS Skate (SSN-578)—a nuclear-powered fast-attack submarine—as a nuclear propulsion plant operator. Retiring from the Navy, Dave finished up his formal studies at the University of Arizona in Tucson and Monmouth University in New Jersey. He was a terrestrial radio talk-show host for many years, on stations in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, including WBAI, part of the Pacifica Radio Network. Dave prevailed in a federal suit brought by the New York Stock Exchange in an attempt to silence him. Dave was an investigative reporter for the national newspaper American Free Press and the history magazine The Barnes Review and has interviewed hundreds of newsmakers, including Hillary Clinton, Ralph Nader, Jesse Ventura, Jon Corzine, Cynthia McKinney, and many others. He is the author of a new book about the attack on the USS Liberty (AGTR-5)—Erasing the Liberty—which is being brought to a wider audience via a full-length feature film (www.erasingtheliberty.com) and works closely with Jim Fetzer to make Moon Rock Books the premiere conspiracy catalog. Dave has three sons and resides in the Florida Panhandle with his wife and youngest.
Matthew Raphael Johnson, Ph.D., is a scholar of Russian Orthodox history and philosophy. He completed his doctorate at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln in 1999 as a recipient of the Sennen, as well as the Clare and Marguerite McPhee Fellowships, focusing on anti-modernist social philosophy. His dissertation details Michael Oakeshott’s critique of Positivism. He is a former professor of both history and political science at the University of Nebraska (as a graduate student), Penn State University and Mount St. Mary’s University. The central philosophical thesis running through all his philosophical work is that nominalism is the root ontological evil. It lies at the foundation of the 20th century and it is termed by Johnson as “the ontology of death.” The author of seven books, including five from Hromada Books— Sobornosti: Essays on the Old Faith; Heavenly Serbia and the Medieval Idea; Orthodoxy, Autocracy, Nationality: Lectures on Medieval Russia; The Ancient Orthodox Tradition in Russian Literature and The Foreign Policy of Mass Society: The Failure of Western Engagement in the Middle East—and two published by The Barnes Review—The Third Rome: Holy Russia, Tsarism and Orthodoxy; and Russian Populist: The Political Thought of Vladimir Putin—his latest is Officially Approved Dissent: Alasdair MacIntyre’s Strategic Ambiguity in His Critique of Modernity.
Nicholas Kollerstrom, Ph.D., was a founding member of Britain’s 9/11 Truth group, 2002–2010, which drew him into the arena of “conspiracy theory.” Following the 7/7 London subway bombings in 2005, he discovered a glitch in the official story of the trains that the “terrorist” was supposedly caught on that day that invalidated the “official account.” A year later, the Home Secretary had to make an announcement in the Commons adjusting the train times of that day. This may have led him to compose the main—if not only—book about the London bombings in terms of what happened on that day, Terror on the Tube: Behind the Veil of 7/7, an Investigation (3rd edition, 2011). For the last year, Nick has co-managed a monthly “9/11 KeepTalking” group, which endeavors to continue the inquiry into who is controlling our world. His inquiries into cyanide absorption on the walls of the German labor camps 70-plus years ago had him thrown out of University College London in 2008 on the ground that he was “denying the Holocaust.” Subsequently, his book, Breaking the Spell (2014), on the topic, brought mathematical, chemical and historical arguments to bear on the subject and became a bestseller, as revisionist books go. He has two degrees in the History of Science, the first at Cambridge followed by his Ph.D. at London, where he would become a member of staff in the Science and Technology Studies Department. His research there has focused upon Sir Isaac Newton. He was accepted as a Member of the New York Academy of Sciences in 1999, and invited to contribute to the Biographical Encyclopedia of Astronomy (William Hockey, ed., 2007), where he contributed the biography of Sir Isaac Newton. Nick has been a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society for several decades. He also published extensive research on the discovery of Neptune, including studies on the planet’s co-discoverers, Le Verrier and Adams. His latest, Chronicles of False Flag Terror: A European Perspective (2017) is available from Moon Rock Books. He currently lives in Walthamstow, East London, with his partner and two cats.
David Martin, Ph.D., holds a doctorate in economics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He has been an economics professor, the head of the office of economic research for the Economic Development Administration of Puerto Rico in San Juan, and he worked for many years in Washington, D.C., for the governor and for the resident commissioner of Puerto Rico. His latest employment before retiring in 2009 was with the Bureau of Labor Statistics in D.C. While at Chapel Hill he was a founding member of the North Carolina Veterans for Peace. Before that he had been a lieutenant in the U.S. Army in Korea, having earned his commission through the ROTC program at Davidson College. While at Davidson, one of his intramural basketball rivals was future Deputy White House Counsel, Vincent W. Foster, Jr., who graduated two years behind him. More than anything else, the mysterious death of Foster in 1993 while Martin was working in D.C. was responsible for his beginning to research and write about what has since come to be called the “Deep State.” The first part of his now book-length six-part article, “America’s Dreyfus Affair, the Case of the Death of Vincent Foster,” was published on the website of the late J. Orlin Grabbe in 1996 before Martin was online. That article is now accompanied on his own web site, www.dcdave.com, by a groundbreaking article of six parts about America’s first secretary of defense entitled “Who Killed James Forrestal?” Foster has often been described as “the highest ranking government official to commit suicide since James Forrestal.” One of Martin’s most cited works is “Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression.” An index of his articles, now covering a wide range of topics, primarily on ignored or alternative historical topics, can be found at ariwatch.com/Links/DCDave.htm.
Jack Mullen, a native of West Virginia continues to pursue his life-long ambition to understand the world. He began working at a local radio station at age 15 and immediately knew that he had to be an electrical engineer. Taking adult night school electronics classes during high school, he continued to college and studied electrical engineering, receiving an Associate’s Degree in Engineering in 1979 and a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering in 1980 from West Virginia University (WVU). After graduation, he was offered a full paid Teaching Fellowship at WVU to continue earning a Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering. Jack’s interests were electronics and antennas. His Master’s thesis involved work on Tesla-inspired Toroidal Helix Antenna Systems. After finishing the Master’s Degree course work, he co-created two businesses, with several engineers, focused on antenna design and the second the creation of the first random access cassette-based radio automation system available commercially. Jack completed an MBA (1999, Frostburg State University of the University System of Maryland) and graduated with the Most Outstanding Student award. He was admitted to the Ph.D. program at WVU in 1992 in Economics, having successfully completed economics undergraduate perquisites and 20 hours toward the Ph.D. Jack also completed an undergraduate curriculum in Biology during the same period (with interest toward possible med school application). Jack has a pilot’s license and is a student of martial arts with several masters’ level belts (Tang Soo Do, Taekwondo) and is a certified teacher of IKCA Chinese Kenpo.

Paul Craig Roberts, Ph.D., has had careers in scholarship and academia, journalism, public service, and business. Dr. Roberts is a former Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Treasury, member of the U.S. Congressional staff, associate editor and columnist for The Wall Street Journal, and columnist for BusinessWeek, the Scripps Howard News Service, and Creators Syndicate. He has held academic appointments in six universities, including the William E. Simon Chair in Political Economy, Center for Strategic and International Studies, Georgetown. He has testified before Committees of Congress on 30 occasions. He is author or coauthor of 10 books and numerous articles in scholarly journals. Dr. Roberts was awarded the U.S. Treasury’s Meritorious Service Award for “outstanding contributions to the formulation of U.S. economic policy,” and France’s Legion of Honor as “the artisan of a renewal in economic science and policy after half a century of state interventionism” by the government of Francois Mitterrand.

Michael Thomas, the editor of State of the Nation (SOTN), has a deep and long professional background in financial analysis, economic forecasting and monetary assessment. His current area of specialty is American politics, as well as the “Great Game” being played on the global geopolitical chessboard. He is also a conspiracy realist who has dissected many of the false flag operations that have plagued the U.S. since the 9/11 terrorist attacks. His first major conspiracy exposé began as a citizen’s indictment of the federal government, which he began that week. Michael has a special 12-part series on Putin’s Russia that the late Jim Marrs has called “groundbreaking . . . and a very important read.” This series had so many previously unknown disclosures about recent Russian history, President Vladimir Putin and Cold War 2.0 that Facebook censored the SOTN website as it continues to do today. The following piece reveals just how radioactive this series is in light of today’s ongoing witch hunt against Russia: “Vladimir Putin’s Russia: Perfect Foil To The Anglo-American Axis And Their New World ‘Order.’” Michael is also an environmental activist and health advocate who worked on the BP Gulf oil spill and Fukushima nuclear disaster. As one of the “Fukushima Five,” he contributed the final chapter to the authoritative book Fukushima: Dispossession or Denuclearization? “The Nuclear Energy Paradigm Collides with Earth Changes and Technospheric Breakdown.” In the wake of the 2008 stock market crash and ensuing Great Recession, Michael was the first investigative journalist on the Internet to reveal the hard truths about the organized plot behind the manufactured breakdown. He wrote a definitive article titled “The PRE-PLANNED Financial and Economic 9/11 of 2008” on 15 September 2008, which underwent several updates on the very day that Lehman Brothers went bankrupt. That article has since informed many subsequent accounts written by several notable authors regarding the engineered collapse.
