On this week’s Real Politik we speak with Prof. Jim Fetzer about his recent termination at Veterans Today and his new volume And I Suppose We Didn’t Go to the Moon Either? The Beatles, the Holocaust, & Other Mass Illusions, co-edited with Mike Palacek and featuring chapters by Fetzer, Jim Marrs, Jay Weidner, Thomas Dalton, Zen Gardner, and several others. Fetzer is the Distinguished Knight Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at University of Minnesota Duluth.
The founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth, he has authored and edited 30 books on the philosophy of science, artificial intelligence, and analyses of American political conspiracies, including the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the plane crash of Senator Paul Wellstone, and the events of September 11, 2001. Fetzer is a regular contributor at Veterans Truth Network and hosts The Real Deal at Media Broadcasting Central, with older audio files at radiofetzer.blogspot.com Additional writings and information are available at jamesfetzer.blogspot.com
We begin the interview by discussing Prof. Fetzer’s recent departure from Veterans Today, where he had been an associate editor since 2011. Fetzer had a falling out with VT director Gordon Duff concerning the overall nature of the Jade Helm military exercises taking place in the summer of 2015. “I’d published 150 articles by about six weeks ago, around the first of May,” Fetzer notes,
when I was dismissed from Veterans Today for publishing about Jade Helm. In retrospect, I’m convinced Gordon has been using VT to manage veteran attitudes about events. He was unhappy to have another former marine, Robert O’Dowd, publish about Jade Helm. [Duff] added an editor’s note to minimize the significance of what O’Dowd was asking about Jade Helm. When I published an article a couple of days later defending O’Dowd and criticizing Duff for intervening, he added an even more caustic editor’s note. But nevertheless after the first hour it had over 600 views. It was obvious it was going to go to number one, which I even observed to my wife.
So Gordon, seeing the handwriting on the wall, took it down. He subsequently published several articles minimizing the threat of Jade Helm, suggesting it’s nothing but a routine training drill involving nothing but National Guard troops and merely 1,200, all of which is provably false. And I have published on this among others, in an article entitled, “Gordon Duff: Covering for Jade Helm and the Boston Bombing,” because I noticed immediately, when on the following day he took me out of Veterans Today, that he’d removed all four of my most recent articles about the Boston bombing, each of which blew the case apart. The entire thing is a fraud … I’ve subsequently continued to publish on my own blog and on Veterans Truth Network.
In relation to the Boston bombing the most significant article being, “THEY DIDN’T DO IT: Maret Tsarnaev Blows Apart the Boston Show Trial,” where Maret was the aunt of the two men who were accused of complicity in the event. I learned from her that even the footage of the two boys at the Marathon was fake because Tamerlan was shown clean-shaven in the footage, but he actually had a beard at the time. I asked her to substantiate it, which she did with proof after proof after proof.
Also, I point out in this same article how Tamerlan was taken into police custody. He was stripped naked and put in to a police car, widely broadcast at the time, and subsequently he is found dead and his brother is claimed to have done it. But how could his brother have done it once Tamerlan is in police custody?
Fetter explains how the idea for the new volume, And I Suppose We Didn’t Go to the Moon, Either? was largely the invention of Mike Palacek. “This came from the creative genius of Mike Palacek,” Fetter explains,
who’s published about 20 books of his own. Mike is kind of a homespun version, kind of a Will Rogers type, who represents genuine Americana. He has a way of looking at the world that is so totally down to earth, and I recommend all of his works.
He wanted to do a series. Initially he was struck by the fact that Kevin Barrett and I had this radio show called, The Dynamic Duo, which lasted a year-and-a-half on Genesis. We subsequently collaborated on many events. Today we’re The False Flag Weekly News together, which I highly recommend on No Lies Radio …
[Palacek] published a book entitled, The Dynamic Duo: White Rose Blooms in Wisconsin, named after this German group that had sought to resist imposition of fascism on Germany, which was very flattering. It turned out to be an enormous thing–the size of a phone book! When Mike proposed doing sequels about Sandy Hook and the Boston bombing, about the moon landing and even the Holocaust, and then eventually about 9/11, I was eager to do it, and to become involved as an editor. He proposed the title for the series, which is “Save the World, Resist the Empire.”
A tireless pursuer and analyst of media disinformation, one of Prof. Fetzer’s most notable recent articles is titled, “James H. Fetzer – Wikipedia The Free Encyclopedia BUSTED!“
