    Good god Seamus! Donkeys? After that movie you wanted me to watch yesterday. :jawdrop:

    Even though some don't quite understand your Gaelic impulsive temper and humour you were all over Fetzer's work before most noticed the decline. 'A+' for observation skills. Maybe a 'D' for diplomacy some times.... But then Jim gets a fail for his lack of logic and reasoning skills and lack of diplomacy and people skills with all the people that have had different views to him. And that is certainly most informed people. There are many both here and at CTKA who aren't buying the snake oil that is being peddled. But he wants to make it personal maybe because his work can't stand on its own he has to put others down to that level. I don't know :shrug:

    CD you are a wan ker. Nonetheless, I do rate you and your post made me piss myself laughing. Very funny and at my expense as per usual lol. Anyway the irony is that in NZ our Prime Minister is called John Key. He is a right wing asshole, I often call him Don Key rofl. As an education you may want to look into Colombian Donkey love. I showed it to Magda, Colombians are not the only ones being screwed today...so are their pack animals. Funny, I didn't grasp the significance of the Donkey call till Magda just posted. I walked into that one bloody Australians lol. But yeah thanks for that, it was the 9/11 forums back in the day which really opened my eyes and made think this doesnt look good. However, I am quite stoked about where some of the stuff will go now. I hope we all use this time to reclaim reason.

    Nicely written, Seamus. If you continue to articulate so eloquently we'll need to conduct a forensic investigation of your varying style! :D

    I had a pony as a child. But ever since I saw this I have never admitted to it:

    But he has not.

    If you are not on a mission from DiEugenio to thoroughly discredit him, then get off your high horse!

    You seem to be more offended by his attacks against me than I am!

    Rest assured: I can defend myself without you. But, FWIW: Thank you for your support.
    Lol I don't ride horses, I like Donkeys and Shetland ponies ROFL. I know you can look after yourself, maybe it's an over reaction on my behalf because I was so unfair in our first interaction's. I feel very strongly about good people getting the raw end of the stick. I certainly hear you, just as long as you know I have your back nowadays (well most of the time chief).

    Anyhow, while I am very much the office junior on the block, I really did take an interest in Fetzer some time ago before I started writing for Jim Di. If anybody is really interested in where Fetzer began his downward spiral, I suggest tracking back to his time in the 9/11 nexus. Some really bizarre stuff was going on there. I was posting on some website awhile after I did my Alex Jones piece and some guys were asking me why Fetzer was still welcomed in JFK circles. I really had no idea why, funny though around that time I predicted that he would join himself with John Hankey. Whats funnier Greg, is I recall you and I having a laugh when you said Cinque would join up with JF. And bingo look what happened.

    Anyhow, I have appeared to be gloating over the demise of JF. In so doing I have been a little insensitive to people here who have been hurt by his actions and were close to him. I saw Pete Lemkins post just prior to the thread going down. I also saw CD's response, while it stung me initially it did make me reflect on how I have worded my thoughts. As much as it rankles, I have to swallow my pride and respect that many people liked his earlier JFK stuff. If I have come across as arrogant or haughty I apologize for my insensitivity. In all reality there was some okay stuff, at least initially and CTKA have utilized some of his observations. This is even after JF abused us sigh.

    I posted here awhile back and I stated I actually liked Fetzer's non conspiracy stuff, I took some time a ways back to read some of his thoughts on technology and science. It was pretty well written and made one think. I also initially liked his insights into American politics on BOR, his review of Ruth Paines garage was pretty good and I found his Zap film alteration stuff interesting. Indeed being something of a conservative agnostic on the issue (I tend to be more on the Groden side generally) I still genuinely find the debates fascinating and I see no evil on the alteration side. However, the more erratic Fetzer became with the 9/11 stuff, the more I distanced myself from keeping a more open mind too that aspect of the debate. One of the reasons I support the Groden angle is one of the problems I had with JF in the alteration department, was while he coordinated a lot of the efforts. I became confused because so many alterationist's were seeing different things. One of the things you have noticed, is that Fetzer seems to swallow everything. He seemingly had little filtration. Is there any one unifying argument concerning alteration? In your opinion who has the best overall take? Hell may be I should ask you that question on a different thread.

    Greg, while my personal issues with JF are not quite so obvious (I readily admit no one really cares as I am small player in all this) they are certainly there. If you check out a number of posts I suspected that the train wreck Lee Cahalan was a pal of Fetzer's for one. Some of the comments he and Cahalan made about Lisa Pease and Jim Di (all roughly at the same time) being CIA on the EF was rather personal don't you think? He would later move on to include me (though I can't really play victim, I came out of the blocks snarling lol). Now I would imagine you would take it pretty personally, were I to say the same about you and say Jack White or Fletcher Prouty? How would CD react were I to slag GME as being disinformation? What was really revealing when I came at him, was I used a fraction of the venom he had heaped on others and he went running for the mods ROFL. In hindsight, where I isolated myself in my blood lust was criticizing Fetzer 'kook' ideas. What I should have said, was that he had taken some interesting subjects worthy of discussion at least and made a pigs ear of them. Indirectly, I tarred those people in those areas with his brush.

    What is really interesting is from the time of his going NATO over the RFK stuff, he effectively made a bee line for CTKA. Most of his guff in recent times has been directed at our articles. It is only until recently he has changed tack and come for the DPF. To the best of my recollections it started with CD and I on a Phil Nelson thread. It was fascinating and a little disturbing seeing it all unfold as I think many of us thought it would. While CD and I have a few rocky moments, I still really appreciate how he came into bat for us (in his own way). I can't help but think this may have been another underlying reason JF went off at him like he did. I also appreciate how despite your differences with Jim and I you saw what was happening as well. I guess the enemy of my enemy is my friend lol. In saying that I hope despite differences we can build from uniting in this shared experience. Indeed, it's fascinating that on the eve of the fiftieth one of the things unifying us all at the moment has been the ousting of Fetzer. Which is a pretty sad reality, I just hope we can be more careful noticing figures like this in the future.

    I think your posts concerning guilt by association, in which you explained the awkward position you felt you were left with in the wake of Fetzer was excellent. That took some real balls, I just hope people like yourself can create some order out of the chaos he has left behind. As I have said I think people like CD and yourself need not worry about any taint. Your both bigger than Fetzer. The real challenge I see for people like yourself, who dabbled in similar areas with JF is extricating the good stuff you and others have worked on from under his shadow. That's where the 'taint' lies. Hence, I wish you the best of luck in that regard partner. In the coming weeks, months, years it'll be interesting to see what people like you and CD will shape.

    Till then keep cool. I am going to ride my Donkey into the sun set.

    So there you go, Seamus. Nothing personal.

    I always knew you had a stable personality.

    Default Don Key see Donkey doo!

    Well folks the posts replies and retorts here have been a highlight of my week. Well in due payment for the giggles GB and CD have wrought concerning Don keys and stables. I have something that will either make you both laugh, cry or 'curl up in the fetal position' as the journo in this doco describes what he witnessed.

    I really should have been more careful with my Donkey quote. I severely overlooked a few days ago I sent Magda a crazed documentary concerning these creatures. The fact is Colombia is f###ed and so too are its Donkey's. I don't know how appropriate this subject is. I could say its because we are talking about JF being a jack ass...but hey that's a little bit on the nose. I don't blame him for this in any way I blame Magda lol.

    Vice have some pretty interesting stuff, I'd like to get Jan's POV on them. Nonetheless thanks to this lighter side of 'Vice' you will likely never look at our four legged friends in the same light.

    I've linked the offending documentary in the threads here...um I dunno I can't exactly say watch and enjoy lol.

  9. Default Fetzer outed as disinfo since 2006

    In November 2006 James Fetzer and Judy Woods made a play to derail the 9/11 Truth movement with jaw dropping absurdities that space beams destroyed the World Trade Center.

    Having inserted himself on the governing board of a "Scholars For 9/11 Truth," Jim Fetzer proceeded to bring in this scholarly approach:

    "(c-2) non-classic controlled demolition from the top-down using mini-nukes, and (c-3) non-classic controlled demolition from the top-down using directed energy weapons. All of these deserve consideration and, to the the best of my knowledge, none of (c-1) to (c-3) has been refuted at this stage of scientific inquiry. During the course of her interview with me, Judy suggested that the source of the energy required might possibly have been based in space. This is not as fanciful as it might sound, insofar as the US has been pursuing "full spectrum dominance" (of air, sea, land and space!) for some period of time. The very idea of space-based weapons strikes many people as a stretch, if not absurd."

    Don't cry for Jim Fetzer, please. Subversion by making bold and patently ridiculous claims is his M.O. By associating the ridiculous with movements for truth he destroys movements from the inside like a cancer.

    Welcome Joe! Yes, well, what can one say? While the professor's tenacity and willingness to embrace new ideas may be admirable the general experience of a Fetzer leaves quite a lot to be desired. He was a personal friend of some here so it was tricky on many levels. But not our problem now. Thankfully. Onwards and upwards.
