Your Tax Dollars at Work: The "Official" Government Disinformation, Misinformation and Bogus Science - Now on the America.Gov Website

Oh for cryin' out loud!

So why has our own government stepped-up the lavish use of our tax dollars for an inept and ham-handed cover up of the crimes of 9/11? Good question. And we want some answers.

Just in case you think that there isn't an Active Government Cover-Up of 9/11 - just feast your eyes on the website:

Click on the "9/11 info." link on this page and you'll get a face full of bogus and discredited science. They have even quoted the pathetic and thoroughly debunked Popular Mechanics as a pseudo-scientific source.

This is the "home page." Do a search in the upper right-hand corner for "9/11" and see what you get. This could be funny - except that it isn't at all.

This is their little pop-up. Check out all the links for laffs.

Sometimes a survey pops up. Do feel free to fill it out and tell 'em what you REALLY think...and it wouldn't hurt to be factual. I'd hate to see us sink to their level.

Should we be "thanking" Cass Sunstein for making this brand spankin' new Official Government Propaganda Machine at

Cass Sunstein is currently on leave from Harvard while working in the Obama administration.

Sunstein co-authored a 2008 paper with Adrian Vermeule, titled Conspiracy Theories, in which they wrote, "The existence of both domestic and foreign conspiracy theories, we suggest, is no trivial matter, posing real risks to the government’s antiterrorism policies, whatever the latter may be."

They go on to propose that, "the best response consists in cognitive infiltration of extremist groups", where they suggest, among other tactics, "Government agents (and their allies) might enter chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups and attempt to undermine percolating conspiracy theories by raising doubts about their factual premises, causal logic or implications for political action."

Sunstein and Vermeule also analyze the practice of secret government payments to outside commentators, who are then held out as independent experts; they suggest that "government can supply these independent experts with information and perhaps prod them into action from behind the scenes," further warning that "too close a connection will be self-defeating if it is exposed."

Sunstein and Vermeule argue that the practice of enlisting non-government officials, "might ensure that credible independent experts offer the rebuttal, rather than government officials themselves. There is a tradeoff between credibility and control, however. The price of credibility is that government cannot be seen to control the independent experts."

This position has been criticized by some commentators, who argue that it would violate prohibitions on government propaganda aimed at domestic citizens.

By now you may find yourself in need of a breath of fresh air, so listen to Dr. David Ray Griffin here and clear your head.
