Today, April 19, 2017, is the 22nd anniversary of the Oklahoma City Bombing. The bombing of the federal Murrah office building was blamed by federal authorities on a bomb made from fertilizer inside a truck parked in front of the building by Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols.
There are many anomalies associated with the official explanation, including mysterious deaths of some, including a police officer, who understood that the actual facts did not accord with the explanation. Investigators who report the actual facts are branded “conspiracy theorists” and dismissed. This has been the Deep State’s way of controlling explanations since the 1940s.
Americans, being the insouciant (heedless; unconcerned) people that they are, never noticed that the Murrah building blew up from the inside out, not from the outside in.
After the bombing in Oklahoma city a very interesting video of the event was made by a citizen journalist (see below). It was titled ”Cover-up in Oklahoma”. It was largely composed of video taken from the local news channels immediately after the the bombing. The difference between the immediate local news coverage and the official story is the difference between x and not-x. Within an hour or two of the bombing the local news coverage featured an interview with a Mr. Randall Heather (as I remember his name). He was identified as an expert (on either terrorism or explosives) and he was positively giddy with joy. He stated that first responders going through the standing remains of the Murrah Building had discovered several unexploded bombs and that with this evidence the perpetrators were almost certainly going to be identified and caught in short order. (Of course Mr. Heather quickly vanished from the airways.) There are also several clips from the local news of bomb disposal vehicles backing up to the Murrah Building with the audio of the local reporter stating that unexploded bombs had been found and were being removed. There is also video of a talk by General Partin on the absolute certainty that the building was blown up from the inside. The speech was made over a local access TV station (as I recall) and recorded by a citizen journalist. Some time later I learned (from some other source) that the speech was made over a local access TV station because no MSN station would permit Partin to appear on-air. What appears to have happened is that the Murrah Building was intended to be brought totally down, producing nothing but a pile of rubble of essentially no obvious evidentiary value , but something went wrong, and several bombs failed to explode. Washington was not prepared for this and did not have a team of news censors on-site to take immediate control of the coverage. The result was that for several hours the local first responders had full access to the still-standing portions of the building, and the local reporters had a free hand to report on what was found. (These local reporters did in fact report shortly after the bombing that Washington had \”a team of investigators in the air\” heading to Oklahoma City. When I viewed this video with a group of people one of them groaned \”Here come the news censors\”. Indeed, after just about the length of time that it would have taken Washington to quickly assemble a team and fly them to Oklahoma City, the local news coverage utterly changed and began to reflect what became the official story.) Incidentally, you may be aware that both Time and Newsweek reported that the external bomb (which allegedly brought down the building) was so powerful that it left a massive crater in front of the Murrah building. The dimensions of this crater were said to be 30 feet across by 10 feet deep. (I imagine that computer modeling had shown that an explosion powerful enough to bring down the building, would have left such a crater. To tell a consistent story, the existence of such a crater was then reported. I used to work in the defense industry and in my experience such computer modeling of the effects of weapons is totally standard.) Of course, video taken by local news helicopters flying over the Murrah Building during the first hour or two after the explosion show no such crater. When I watched this video with a small group, one of the members of the audience screamed, \”Where is the crater?\” , and ran up to inspect the TV screen. He returned to his seat muttering, \”America is so sick. America is so sick.\” Several years ago (maybe six or seven) I found that this video, \”Cover-up in Oklahoma\” was still available on eBay or Amazon. It may be on YouTube. I have not checked. For about 4 hours after the bombing, the local news in Oklahoma was free of censorship. This video provides a good record of what actually happened. Here is a compilation of the first reports.
Air Force General Benton K. Partin, the US Air Force’s top explosive expert, noticed these things too. He prepared a detailed report containing “conclusive proof that the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, was not caused solely by the truck bomb. Evidence shows that the massive destruction was primarily the result of four demolition charges placed at critical structural points at the third floor level.” Here is a copy of General Partin’s letter accompanying the report he sent to US Senator Trent Lott. http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/RANCHO/POLITICS/OK/PARTIN/ok8.htm
General Partin was my neighbor in Alexandria, Virginia. I went through his report those years ago, and it is clear that the official “investigation” ignored all the facts presented by General Partin. Indeed, Partin’s report is not even part of the record. Wikipedia does not even mention the report as a “conspiracy theory” in Wikipedia’s recitation of the official line.
The Oklahoma City Bombing was orchestrated and then covered up just as the 9/11 bombing of the WTC in Manhattan was orchestrated and then covered up.
A number of people knew better than to come to work that day in the Murrah building. The motive behind the deep state perpetrators’ desire to kill several hundred people, including children, was planned with the objective of creating fear (and thus preventing rational thinking) among the public, stirring up wars against the predetermined targets in the middle east, and getting support to enlarge the military industrial complex while establishing a police state here at home.
It was targeted at the militias and the creation of police powers that could be used against them. Two years previously the Clinton regime murdered approximately 100 men, women, and children at the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas. The religious sect was threatening no one and in violation of no laws, but it was a dissident group that the US government decided to terminate.
The focus on dissidents changed with 9/11, which Israel and Israel’s American neoconservative allies used to apply wide-ranging and long-lasting massive violence to seven Muslim countries, costing US taxpayers trillions of dollars and what remained of the reputation of the United States.
The main consequence of “terrorism” is the extraordinary growth of unconstitutional police state powers throughout the Western world. Every protective shield of individual rights, except for the Second Amendment, has been stripped from the US Constitution by the so-called “war on terror.”
All of the alleged terrorist attacks have puzzling, uninvestigated, and unreported anomalies. It is astonishing that the media never asks any questions. Consider, for example, the Nice, France, Truck attack.
Nice police authorities have the unambiguous evidence of the security cameras on every block of the truck’s alleged murderous route. There should be no question whatsoever about what really happened. Yet, the Minister of the Interior in Paris ordered the Nice public authorities to destroy the video evidence and not to release it. So all we have is a very grainy inconclusive video taken by a person allegedly married to a former Mossad intelligence officer. This person turns out to be the same person who provides the only video of an attack in Germany.
The bridge attack in London is overwhelming with the lack of any evidence. We simply get an official story. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPIAp2sDzTc
Sandy Hook is famous for the one bereaved parent, but there were allegedly scores of dead children. Where are the other parents? Aren’t they bereaved?
If these terror events are real, it is a simple matter for the media to ask questions, to investigate, and to give the public the facts. But the media never does. The media only repeats the official story without checking it.
In other words, the facts are whatever the government says they are. So what is the purpose of the media?
No purpose except to be a trumpet for the government.
The official stories of the Murrah office building bombing and 9/11 are now enshrined in memorials, the purpose of which is to make a lie the truth.
For insouciant Americans this works.
The US is without any doubt now the worst police state, not only in reality exceeding Gestapo Nazi Germany, but exceeding the human imagination of George Orwell and other authors of dystopias.
And this utterly corrupt criminal police state gets away with pretending to be the “defender of democracy and freedom.” The insouciant American population has no clue.
Freedom is dying in America. Sadly, the younger generations can’t see it because they’ve never experienced freedom. They don’t know what it is, so they don’t know what they have lost.
