Lac Megantic Train Crash Hoax: Rap up

Fayelike this

This blog has been active for 6 years. It’s taken 5 years to get the final tally in this obvious hoax #HRDPAR/NDNGH, one of the first we covered. Note the plethora of occult numbers.

It’s unlikely that any of this money could be justified to re-reroute train tracks. Last time I looked, trains and tracks belonged to private, for profit corporations (even though originally taxpayers probably financed and paid for most of the railroads a few times over).

How else could you get the public to agree to pay for this? STAGE AN EVENT.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will be in Lac-Megantic on Friday to announce a rail bypass nearly five years after a train derailed and exploded in the Quebec town, killing 47 people. Sources tell The Canadian Press that Trudeau and federal Transport Minister Marc Garneau will be on hand and that the federal government will assume 60 per cent of the cost of building the bypass. Quebec will take on the remaining 40 per cent. The price tag for the 11-kilometre bypass is estimated at $133 million. I

Faking the war numbers

A good episode that describes how they counted casualties in the Iraq war.

Recently, the British medical journal The Lancet published an study which updated their estimate of the number of Iraqis who’ve died since the U.S. invasion. With that in mind, we revisit a show we did in 2005 about the earlier study published in Lancet estimating the number of Iraqi deaths. That study was mostly ignored in the U.S. Alex Blumberg revisits the original study and looks at the new one.

As a fakeologist, you will probably agree with option #2 – that they made the numbers up – and made them so big – a big lie – that everybody would believe them.

Right. If you’re going to make up stuff, why go door to door in dangerous areas? Why not just sit in your office and make up stuff? And if you’re going to go door to door, why not just get the data?

Alex Blumberg

Right. And if you’re going to make up stuff, why make up a number that even the people who are on your alleged side are going to argue with you about? That doesn’t make any sense at all. If he was going to fake the data, he would have said, there was 300,000 dead. And then everybody would have been joining in and saying, this is a horrible thing.

Ira Glass

Right.

Alex Blumberg

And instead, he comes up with this much larger number. It just doesn’t make any sense.

So if you’re going to lie, do a better job.

If you’re going to lie, make it a more plausible lie.

The missile was sitting on the couch

The War on Terror should be relabeled the War on Bad Terror Script writing.

The tale sounds more like one intelligence agency (CIA) feeding another law enforcement agency (the FBI) some bad actors in order to create a terror case.

It’s all quite laughable, but these are the kind of stories that 9/11 spawned on the “homeland” front.

Notice how you don’t hear about these silly stories anymore. We’re too far away from the 9/11 official script, and they’re simply out of script writing vogue. If there were real terrorists, they’d be plotting all the time, and presumably, we’d be busting them.

Terror fiction writing doesn’t work like that. They pick a theme, and launch it around the world to make a lasting, searing impression in the world’s mind.

Once thoroughly imprinted, they switch to a new theme. Rinse, repeat.

The audio below is a fantastic story that defies all common sense.

One gem that emerged is the fact that (then) attorney general Chris Christie was appointed by Shrub on Sept 10, 2001. How he believes that the players in this terror skit are real is farcical.

The U.S. government spent two years on a sting operation trapping an Indian man named Hemant Lakhani, whom they suspected of being an illegal arms dealer. It’s one of the few cases that has gone to trial in the War on Terror, and one the Justice Department has pointed to as one of their big successes. In the end, they got Lakhani, red-handed, delivering a missile to a terrorist in New Jersey. The only problem was, nothing in the sting was what it appeared to be. Including the missile.
