Sott Exclusive: Brussels Bombings Farce as Failed "Suicide Bomber" Released For Complete Lack of Evidence

Brussels bombers

The bombers who weren't.
Words fail us. Well, not really. Here are some words: BS, Farce, Con job, Sham, Travesty, Mockery. We could go on, but those should suffice for now to describe the official narrative around the Brussels bombings last week.

Suicide bombers, they told us, were behind the blasts in the airport and metro station. Yet a preponderance of lower leg injuries at both sites argued strongly for bombs that were placed on the floor, not attached to the chest of some wild-eyed jihadi of the type that appears only in the best wet dreams of NATO officials.

But we have proof! Don't we? Video evidence even! We all saw the footage of the bombers as they nonchalantly pushed their baggage carts through the airport just before detonating their 'vests' and considerately leaving a few behind in a trash can for good measure (and authorities' ease in establishing a narrative from the get-go). Three guys, two dressed in black and a third with a hat, glasses and white coat. That's them! Those two in black, they suicide bombed themselves and the third one got cold feet at the last minute and put his bomb in a suitcase and took off. The 'authorities' later found him and arrested him; they'll certainly make him spill the beans. Right?


SOTT Exclusive: Reality check - The biggest victims of terror are Muslims

terrorism statistics victims

This chart shows index rankings of terrorism's impact across the world in 2014. Muslims are not the perpetrators of terror.
As has become common in the aftermath of terrorist attacks, shortly after the bomb attacks in Brussels, people have been blaming... oh, pretty much the entire Muslim population. How 1.7 billion people who are either adherents of, or loosely connected to, the world's second-biggest religion could be responsible for these attacks is beyond me. Many took to Twitter to tweet their support for 'the removal of Islam' via the hashtag 'StopIslam', blaming the religion for the lives lost in the Brussels terrorist attacks (and those before), thus pretty much pointing the finger at all Muslims for the existence of terror itself.

Tweets using the trending hashtag include either anti-Islam sentiment, or support for Islam by Muslims who use the hashtag to repeat the obvious: that they are "Muslim, but not a terrorist." Apparently, people forget that the biggest victims of terror are Muslim. Indeed, by saying that Muslims are responsible for these terror attacks, one is saying that (to name a few examples)... ...are all, in one way or another, responsible for attacks in the West.

It boggles the mind.


Who is Bombing European Civilians?

The last time a wave of bomb attacks were carried out against European civilian targets, 'leftist' or 'communist' groups were blamed. Eventually the truth came out that those groups were deliberately framed and the real perpetrators were 'commando' type groups working directly under the imperial aegis of NATO, which is to say, the USA, its agents and ideological sympathizers in Europe.

The point of this wave of bombings and shootings was to divide, manipulate, and control public opinion using fear, propaganda, disinformation, psychological warfare, agents provocateurs, and false flag terrorist acts to achieve the strategic aims of Western governments, in particular the US government. These strategic aims were embedded in the 'Cold War' ideology of preventing left wing, socialist or communist parties from reaching executive power in Europe, reducing US influence and thereby increasing that of the former Soviet Union.

Last year the Chairman of the U.S. Join Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, stated that the US government and military was 'dusting off its Cold War playbook' in order to deal with Russia and the threat of it gaining influence over European countries. The Pentagon recently designated Russia as the number one threat facing the US today. One has to wonder then how closely the Pentagon's Cold War strategy is being followed today, and if it involves similar false-flag terror attacks against the civilian population of Europe in order to create a climate of insecurity under which more authoritarian policies can be imposed on the public. One also has to wonder about the strange coincidence of Turkish PM Erdogan warning just a few days ago that, "there is no reason why the bomb that exploded in Ankara [on March 12th] could not explode in Brussels."

The Terrorism Act: Death to freedom of speech

Police have used the Terrorism Act to seize the laptop of a BBC journalist, who had previously worked on stories concerning British jihadist fighters.

Secunder Kermani, who started working at the BBC's flagship Newsnight show in 2014, was targeted by police under a judge approved order.

Officers wanted to read communications between Kermani and an individual who had previously appeared on Newsnight, and who claimed to be a member of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL).

Comment: The first video above poses an important question. How can a government declare a war on terror and simultaneously act in such a way that incites the very thing they wish to eradicate?

Cuban cancer patient deprived of medicine by US blockade

A Cuban girl is being deprived of urgently needed cancer treatment due to the United States' blockade, doctors said Wednesday.

Seven-year-old Noemi Bernardez underwent surgery to remove a brain tumor in September, and is now undergoing further treatment including radiation therapy. However, her doctors say the likelihood Bernardez will survive is low without access to a specialized drug made in the United States, Temozolomida.

Comment: The US has a long history of acting hostile towards countries when it doesn't agree with a given country's government. Such behavior obviously harms innocent people, more often than not bringing about the early and unnecessary death of the victims.

Photographer has close shave as lightning strikes

A photographer trying to capture images of a lightning strike nearly gets hit by one.

Brian Skinner is seen standing on the beach in Newcastle Australia with his camera as a fierce storm passes over the area. He turns around to the video camera and smiles nervously when the first lightning strike hits nearby. But the second one comes even closer, striking the water's edge and making the ground shake beneath him, forcing him to abandon his camera.

According to the LiveLeak description, the lightning's current traveled through the water and to the camera, burning the photographer's hands.

Comment: The incidence lethal and near lethal lightning strikes appears to be on the rise.

Courting controversy again, a Florida gun shop used Twitter to offer a free car wash and beer in remembrance of the September 11 terrorist attack, plus $25 off any gun purchased online with the coupon code "Muslim."

"At the end of the day, I am compelled to stand up for what I believe in. And I believe Islam is evil at its core," Andy Hallinan, owner of Florida Gun Supply, told MSNBC.

The Twitter post featured an image of the American flag with the caption "Never Forget" and the date 09.11.2001. It also featured text saying: "It's 9/11 week. Use coupon code "muslim" at our site for $25 off any gun. Come in Fri for a free car wash and beer!"

Hallinan also displayed the same image on his Facebook page, but without any mention of the coupon code "muslim."

Living in the Matrix: Physicist finds computer code embedded in string theory

James Gates

Theoretical physicist, Dr. James Gates, Jr.
The idea that we live in a holographic universe that uses a form of quantum "computer code" to create the physical reality is not a new idea. In the 1940s, some physicists suggested that we live in a "computer generated" universe. In the video at the end of this article, physicists James Gates talks about this form of computer code, which he refers to as "adinkras".

In my book titled Staradigm (published in 2011), I mentioned about this idea and roughly explained how it worked. It is great to finally hear that physicists of today are finding evidence that the Universe is a giant hologram.

Here is an excerpt from my book that explains how reality works at the fundamental levels:

Environmental scientist who studied health effects of 9/11 dust, collapses, dies at Newark airport

© Reuters/Shannon Stapleton
Paul James Lioy, an environmental scientist known for his work on the health effects of dust produced by the World Trade Center disaster on September 11, 2001, died this week after collapsing at Newark Liberty International Airport. He was 68 years old.

Lioy was an internationally renowned authority on exposure science. He received two lifetime achievement awards for his work - the Wesolowski Award from the International Society of Exposure Analysis and the Frank Chambers Award from the Air and Waste Management Association. He also authored the book 'Dust: The Inside Story of its Role in the September 11th Aftermath.' He was also a professor of environmental and occupational health and vice chair of the Department of Environmental Medicine at the Rutgers University School of Public Health in New Jersey, according to the university's website.

In the field of exposure science, Lioy specialized in toxins and pollutants affecting both the environment and occupational health.

The cause of his death has not yet been determined, his wife Jean Lioy told the New York Times.

Having witnessed dust rising from the ruins of the World Trade Center from his home in Cranford, New Jersey, Lioy became one of the first scientists to gather and test samples from the site.

"It was unprecedented in terms of the complex characteristics of the materials released," Lioy told USA Today in 2011.
