Mention the word ‘conspiracy’ and eyes roll and people head for the exit. Derision is poured with abandon on the heads of those so described as ‘conspiracy theorists’, and especially those who dare to suggest that complex events can be engineered so as to fool the onlooker or the curious. The Boston bombings appear to fall into this category. Indeed, it’s so blatantly an engineered event that I think the ‘producers’ are getting careless (maybe they think we don’t care? More likely, they think we’re too scared to care).
What exactly took place on April 15 at the Boston Marathon is unclear, yet what is now evident is a stark divergence between the narrative description of excessive carnage meted out as a result of the explosive devices and at least a portion of the video and photographic documentation of the bombing itself. – Witnessing Boston’s Mass Casualty Event, The Memory Hole
Of course conspiracies of all kinds do exist, that’s why we have laws that define exactly, what makes a conspiracy.
But of course, there are conspiracies and ‘conspiracies’. The Libor rate fixing was a conspiracy between banks to fix interest rates in their favour. Capitalism employs conspiracies on a regular basis in order to maintain power and control and to further the interests of the owning class. Read our history. It’s why the media not only falls into line but actively denigrates those who question the accepted view of why and how events happen.
There’s nothing especially ‘Area 51’ about a conspiracy. It depends what kind it is as to how it’s dealt with by the corporate/state media. So, banks don’t always conspire to rip us off and the media never dare suggest that it is a conspiracy. Mostly they don’t need to as clearly the state has no intention of prosecuting beyond a slap on the wrist and a fine (and anyway the fine is paid with our money). Those who pass the laws as well as administer them are handpicked to serve business first and foremost. It’s not a secret but obviously, they don’t brag about it.
So, finally it comes down to the nature of the conspiracy as to whether it’s considered to really be one of those kinds of conspiracy by the so-called mainstream media. The capitalist/state media has a vested interest in deriding any event that threatens to expose them for what they and the class that owns them, really are. Hence, when anti-war activists (and others) asserted that the invasion of Iraq was in part at least, about oil, they were branded as ‘conspiracists’ and hence crazy.
Yet on a daily basis, the MSM and the state talks of a ‘global Jihad’, that operates secretly across the planet, surely a conspiracy of the really grandest kind. One so large and complex that it rivals the secret (and not-so secret) global network of bombers and assassins operated by the US government. One that puts the ‘global Jihad’ to shame if measured in the numbers killed. But shurely not a conspiracy?
The Memory Hole, carries a piece, Witnessing Boston’s Mass Casualty Event which is devastating in the way it reveals how, especially when combined with other reports taken from different vantage points, the complex theatre of events, engineered it appears largely so that Marshall Law could be declared and Boston and its burbs put under total, I mean total lockdown! And the people obeyed. A rehearsal perhaps?
Bizarre, but true. Assuming it was just the two Tsaernav brothers, why did they need to lock down the entire city and beyond?
In short, the event closely resembles a mass-casualty drill, which for training purposes are designed to be as lifelike as possible. Since it is mediated, however, and primarily experienced from afar through the careful assemblage of words, images, and the official pronouncements and commentary of celebrity journalists, it has the semblance of being for all practical purposes “real.” – Witnessing Boston’s Mass Casualty Event
The piece reveals through the use of videos of real simulations conducted by various agencies, just how easy it is to fake amputations, lots of what looks like blood (except it’s the wrong colour). The photos of the Boston bombings in both articles show bodies disappearing and reappearing and people signalling to each other. It really is bizarre. The entire thing is clearly a staged event! One that really belongs on the Derren Brown Show, master illusionist. And it’s so blatant! I ‘witnessed’ it mostly via BBC ‘News’ coverage and from the getgo, before I’d seen any of these videos, it just didn’t make any sense.
The Memory Hole tells us:
With the above in mind, photographic evidence of the event suggests the possibility of play actors getting into position after the detonation of what may in fact have been a smoke bomb or similarly benign explosive. The photo album from which the following photos are taken is available here. Additional photos may be found at cryptome.org. (ibid)
That’s just what it looked like. So for example, it was alleged that there were 3 deaths and nearly 250 casualties, yet all the videos of the aftermath of the explosion, show at most twenty people on the ground, getting into position. Where are the rest?
But above all, it reveals how the media conspires with the state to fool a spooked public. If everyone is imprisoned in their house or apartment, they have only the media as a source of ‘news’. The entire city becomes a theatrical production orchestrated by the state and produced largely by television which, after all is used to simulating ‘reality’ on a daily basis. It’s just another gig.
So assuming the entire thing was staged, to what end? One thing seems clear, namely that the state wanted to test its own procedures in an emergency. For example, ‘civil unrest’. Why else lock down the city just to find two men? And of course, it wants to do it all ‘legally’ just as the German Nazi Party did in the 1930s.
By making a few subtle changes to a regulation in the U.S. Code titled “Defense Support of Civilian Law Enforcement Agencies” the military has quietly granted itself the ability to police the streets without obtaining prior local or state consent, upending a precedent that has been in place for more than two centuries. – The Militarization of Domestic Law Enforcement: Pentagon Unilaterally Grants Itself Authority Over ‘Civil Disturbances’
Goodbye posse comitas. The bonus was that both events, the bombs and the lockdown scared the people shitless. And you say these things don’t happen? Like when the Nazis torched the Reichstag and blamed it on a Bulgarian communist just so they had a pretext for crushing all dissent. These things happen all over the world. Conspiracies are quite common, get over it.
The Boston bombings reveal a US government that is weak and entering its final paranoid state, one that preludes some kind of Fascist variant taking over (as much as the Nazis were a variant of Mussolini’s original Fascism). Else why go to such lengths as setting fire to your own parliament for example? Or lying about the reasons for invading another country? Laughably (not that it was funny), they said it was a ‘mistake’ that led to the invasion of Iraq. But you don’t up and send a million men and machines halfway round the world by ‘mistake’. Or staging a bombing in full view of the world’s public in order to test preparations for imposing a militarized state?
Seen in this light, the corporate media’s denigration of so-called conspiracy theorists makes perfect sense.
