A Proper Gander At Propaganda

Truth Transcends Community

"Propaganda in the United States is spread by both government and media entities. Propaganda is information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to influence opinions. It's used in advertising, radio, newspaper, posters, books, television, and other media."  -  Propaganda in the United States - Wikipedia

How To Create Fake News Footage 101: 2D vs 3D Compositing

Please excuse the stray typo.

Superman Returns Airplane Rescue FULL HD - A Problem with the official 9/11 story revealed in film for all to see.

Never Forget 9/11: A How To Create Terror Based Propaganda Footage with a Desktop Computer From 1999!

A desktop computer from the late 20th century was powerful enough to be able to handle the video compositing for the footage of the passenger jet strikes that live on forever online on Youtube. The digital age makes it easy to learn for oneself how this all works. Google and Youtube can be used by the wise to learn many new subjects, all on your own. The greatest library and communications tools are at your fingertips. Use it. This tool is not only a painter's canvas, and a writer's pen, it is the means to distribute the work at the same time. The internet is a powerful tool for self education.

Twin Tower Tom Foolery

Passneger Jets cannot magically demolish the massive Twin Towers in less than two hours. This real physical problem means the official narrative is a lie. This has nothing to do with the obviously fake footage. Whether passenger jets actually hit the towers or not is irrelevant. The story is impossible and the job had to be an inside one. The thing had to be literally rigged. This was a magic trick with two main components. One was the literal television screening of the event. Screen as in filter. And one would be the outside component that would include the actual controlled demolition. The Two Towers are supposed to have essentially fallen into their own footprints. If the official narrative were true, we truly live in a saturday morning cartoon comic book Universe. If the official narrative were true, the hugest building humans have ever constructed do not need to be careful rigged for demolition by experts, all one need do is fly a passenger jet randomly into the building and wait about an hour and a half or so. This is obviously absurd. We could use this logic to justify pouring a gallons ands gallons of kerosene into the elevator shafts and lighting a match and expect the building to fall just like as if it was rigged very carefully, by experts, to do so.

All Know Footage of Second Plane ...Uploaded by 911TruthVideos on 2009-05-19.

The 4-1-1 on 9-1-1

"9-1-1 is an emergency telephone number for the North American Numbering Plan (NANP), one of eight N11 codes. Like other emergency numbers around the world, this number is intended for use in life threatening emergency circumstances only, and to use it for any other purpose (such as making false or prank calls) can be a crime."

"The first known experiment with a national emergency telephone number occurred in the United Kingdom in 1937, using the number 999.[6] In the United States, the push for the development of a nationwide American emergency telephone number came in 1957 when the National Association of Fire Chiefsrecommended that a single number be used for reporting fires.[7] The first city in North America to use a central emergency number was the Canadian city of WinnipegManitoba in 1959, which instituted the change at the urging of Stephen Juba, mayor of Winnipeg at the time.[8] Winnipeg initially used 999 as the emergency number, but switched numbers when 9-1-1 was proposed by the United States. In 1967, the President's Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Justice recommended the creation of a single number that could be used nationwide for reporting emergencies.[10]The Federal Communications Commission then met with AT&T in November 1967 in order to choose the number."

Blacksmith Unwittingly Proves Controlled Demolition - Architects and ...

Cartoon Physics Sold as Fact - This Guy Shows Us Why Passenger Jets Cannot Have Brought Those Buildings Down At All

There are many logical fallacies on display in this video. All the footage and the news rerouting aside. The real problem with the 9/11 story and the official scientific explanation is that is requires us to accept the impossible as real. Obviously passenger jet fuel and passenger jets cannot possibly take down the huge mass of steel and concrete that were the Two Towers in less than two hours or so.

Logical Fallacies Are Easy To Find

Were the Towers surrounded by a huge furnace? Had lower Manhattan become God's gigantic furnace magically? The blacksmith in this video does not even tell us how long he had to leave that bar in his furnace. Does he? He even has to apply pressure to the bar to get it to bend. He doesn't just pull it out of the furnace and lets gravity do its work. Isn't that the so-called theory here? Weight, or the effect of gravity is what is supposed to have caused what can only have been a controlled demolition.This video is a bad attempt at damage control whether intentional or not. Did God apply pressure to the Towers? This is another example of the yellow journal blueprint to our mass media propagandized culture.

Want to bet he had that bar in that furnace longer than it took the Two Towers to fall?

Even if he didn't, there's still the impossibility of the feat. The energy that the passenger jet, fuel and all, would represent is nothing compared to the mass and energy the Tower would represent. If we but look at the proportional masses and proportional densities of the materials involved we can see that the entire official narrative is nothing but the stuff of saturday morning cartoons. The planes are like bugs on the windshield to the Towers.

All the air around the real towers would also contribute to radiating the heat away from the Towers' structure, This is why the steel bar in this video was inside a furnace and not just in a small campfire or simply held over a lighter's flame.

What is the temperature of a Bic lighter flame? | Reference.com

"Within an hour and 42 minutes, both 110-story towers collapsed, with debris and the resulting fires causing partial or complete collapse of all other buildings in the World Trade Center complex, including the 47-story 7 World Trade Center tower, as well as significant damage to ten other large surrounding structures."

"The South Tower collapsed at 9:59 a.m. after burning for 56 minutes in a fire caused by the impact of United Airlines Flight 175 and the explosion of its fuel. The North Tower collapsed at 10:28 a.m. after burning for 102 minutes."

September 11 attacks - Wikipedia

A Large Grill Filled With Match Light Charcoal Takes Longer To Burn off The Lighter Fluid Than The Tower Took To Fall

Fluid soaked charcoal takes longer to burn off than the Towers took to fall. If we has a large enough grill, we'd easily have to wait a couple of hours before we could start grilling without fear of fuel fumes.

If 9/11 were anything but cartoon reasoned physics, demolition would be easier. There would be no need to carefully set up and rig buildings for demolition and we'd need no experts to do so. A bunch of jet fuel can magically make buildings consistently and repeatedly fall (basically) into their own footprints, like controlled demolition can.

Popular Mechanics = Cartoon Propaganda

An official explanation is that the steel was not melted, but that somehow the heat made the steel lose its structural strength. This is another bit of sleight of hand nonsense. This is political spin and not science. There was not enough fuel on the passenger jet for this to even be the case. This is about proportional mass. The huge tower vs the much smaller passenger jet. The jet is tiny in comparison.

There is not enough fuel on the passenger jet to even remotely perform what these people claim. Keep in mind, three buildings, two of them massive, were reported to have fallen as if they were rigged for demolition. What are the odds? 

9/11 Conspiracy Theories - Debunking the Myths - World Trade Center

Scale Models & Photograph Compositing = The Tower Footage

We are supposed to believe the most outlandish explanations over the most demonstrable, The Towers had to have been demolished with controlled demolition. That makes more sense. The legendary footage of the event is a photographic cartoon composite that more than likely made use of an actual scale (physical-non CGI) model of the Towers that were rigged to be demolished like a normal demolition would. The reason why the timing of the fall of the Towers seems to defy the rate of gravity's influence would then be due to the fact that the Two Towers in the video clips are scale models and are more like 10 feet tall, for example. Scale models are shot with film running at higher speed than normal and then that film is played back at a slower frame rate. This would explain any problems with the fallen time seen in the videos of the Towers collapsing.

Of course it's a cartoon, birds can cause damage to Passenger Jets.

Passenger Jets are not designed to penetrate Steel Structure

These things have to fly. They are not made out of dense material like steel. The steel is kept to a minimum. Light weight material is desired. The passenger jet has to maximize the room for passengers and other cargo like luggage. The cargo jet has the same concerns.

Why Fake The Footage?

The reason to show us fake footage over and over again is to traumatize the public. Control of the imagery is important and being able to get the right shot is of upmost concern. The other reason is also if the event itself is physically impossible, like a Moon Landing or 9/11's magical building collapses. Are there any credible accounts of the inevitable passenger jet debris? What we saw on screens does not reflect the reality of that day. 

What people might have actually seen in real life is probably similar to what we can see in the fake footage IE the demolition of the buildings, a controlled demolition. The problem with the footage we've looked at is that it all has clear evidence of being 2d composites and nothing more.

What About People Seeing Passenger Jets in Real Life?

We think most people's memories of the event were and are prejudiced and distorted by the media noise machine and the repetitive nature of showing the passenger jet strikes over and over for what seemed like weeks and weeks at the time (on 24 hour loop as well), that we are not sure that any eye witness account can really be trusted 100%.. Memory is a funny thing and we can misremember things. We can also recall events in the incorrect temporal order. If any eye witness does recall seeing passenger jets near those buildings, we think the answer lies in the very medium used to lie to us all - Radio. 

It's Only A Model

Objects seen in the sky and from a distance may not be as large as we might think.  We think this also explains any eyewitnesses of NASA's fabled rocket launches - one would be seeing a scale model.

"Cinderella Castle was completed in July 1971, after about 18 months of construction. The castle is 183 feet (56 m) tall, as measured from water-level. Many sources quote the height as six feet taller, but that is measured from the concrete bottom of the moat, which itself is 6 feet (1.8 m) deep at the bridge. Cinderella Castle is more than 100 feet (30 m) taller than Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. A set-building trick known as forced perspective makes the castle appear even larger than it actually is. At higher elevations, its proportions to full scale are reduced for elements such as stones, windows, and doors. The castle was the largest Disney theme park castle until the completion of the Enchanted Storybook Castle in Shanghai Disneyland Park."

Radio Control Of Minds

Radio control dates back to the days of Nikola Tesla and others. It goes back to the late 19th century in fact. Not only can large aircraft be radio controlled, they can be programmed as well. In fact a wireless based field can be set up and the aircraft could then navigate based on those signals, without a radio control operator. We think this type of technology is the real hidden top secret "Tesal" tech. But this is conjecture of course. 

Radio control - Wikipedia

A Question of Visual Resolution & Moving Bodies

A passenger jet seen from a sufficient distance would be too blurry to see.

Aerial perspective would make seeing the supposed high speed passenger jet from a distance,  extremely difficult if not impossible. 

Accounts of anyone who claims to have seen the impact of the passenger jets from miles away is questionable. Atmospheric or aerial perspective, the dust and moisture even in dry air, and the fact that the passenger jet reflects the light, make seeing the incident, form a distance, pretty much impossible. The same holds true for NASA rocket launches and the like.

Objects appear bluer and less ditinct the further away they are.

"In art, especially painting, aerial perspective refers to the technique of creating an illusion of depth by depicting distant objects as paler, less detailed, and usually bluer than near objects."

Aerial perspective - Wikipedia

There is plenty of seemingly amateur footage of many things available to watch on Youtube. Some of them, especially the ones from 9/11, are highly suspect and are more than likely part of the show. More fake footage sold as amateur. We could spend forever going through it all and that might be part of the noise machine damage control effort. We do think it important to point out that in 2001 not many people ran around at 9:00 am on a Tuesday morning with VHS cameras. We did not have smart phones and people did not run around with the low end digital cameras available back then. Keep this in mind. We also have to point out the the Government, Military and University systems have long worked together with private enterprise and the International Banking industry to brings us technology like radio, television and the internet.  We think the internet damage control effort was and is part of the plan.

here are many techniques and many ways to insert fake objects into real footage. There are all sorts of ways to do thongs. People can hand paint mattes out. Film can be blown up and printed out huge enough to fill a wall. Each frame of even a thirty frame per second could be manipulated with old analog dark room techniques and an airbrush. With enough time, or staff, very believable effects could be done, all by human hand. People did not need blue screen or any other similar matte technology to hand paint and hand matte imagery. Computers make this older craft easier to accomplish with less staffing. Perfect for operartions that require the security of being on a limited need to know basis, no? Models and paintings and photographic technique were the older ways to create the artificial reality, even with a moving image.

TSAirlines Jumbo Jet Crash Kills 722 (300 in the plane)

"Monsieur Brunel, a French detective on an exchange scheme in London, is assigned to investigate the murder of novelist John Morlar. As they examine the crime scene, Brunel discovers the victim is still alive in spite of his severe injuries and has him rushed to hospital.

With the help of Morlar's journals and Dr. Zonfeld, a psychiatrist Morlar was seeing, Brunel reconstructs Morlar's past life. Seen in flashback, it is filled with inexplicable catastrophes and the sudden deaths of people he disliked or who offended him. Morlar was even more convinced when a supposed psychic examined his hands, became ill, refunded Morlar's fee, and excused himself. Dr. Zonfeld scoffs at this explanation, asking Morlar if he seriously believes in palmistry as a means to predict the future.

As flashbacks continue, it becomes shown that Morlar is a psychic with powerful psychokinetic abilities. Disgusted at the world, Morlar has caused two recent disasters: a Boeing 747-200 that crash into a London office tower and the loss of a manned spacecraft. Dr. Zonfeld, who came to see Morlar at his home, had tried to stop him from killing the astronauts in the spacecraft, but she had failed. She had then bashed in Morlar's skull with a blunt object.

Brunel eventually figures out that Zonfeld attempted to kill Morlar, and confronts her over it. She admits that it was her, but Brunel does not arrest her right away, as what evidence he has is not truly enough to prove, in a court of law, that she was responsible. Later, Brunel returns to Dr. Zonfeld's office, but he discovers her corpse where she had committed suicide, leaving a note where she admits the realization that she cannot live in a world in which Morlar also lives, apologizing to Brunel for leaving the mess for him to deal with. In the mean time, Brunel discovers that Morlar had mentioned, in one of his journals, news about a cathedral being built and how he intended to punish the hypocrisy of those praying there to God but caring nothing about the suffering He inflicts. From his hospital bed, Morlar manages to bring down the cathedral on the "unworthy heads" of a VIP congregation attending the fund raising event for the crumbling building's restoration. Morlar seems able to keep himself alive by sheer willpower. An enraged Brunel runs from the collapsing cathedral to the hospital, where he tries to kill Morlar to end the destruction, just as Zonfeld had tried to kill Morlar to stop him from killing the astronauts, but is also unsuccessful in stopping him. Morlar writes on a pad the name of his next target: the nuclear power station at Windscale (now Sellafield)."

A Possible Actual Photo From 9/11 Below:

We will look into this more. We just came across this photo. The lower part of the South Tower, WTC 2, on our right, (without the antenna), looks to be wrapped in some kind of material. It doesn't look like smoke, it looks more like something a construction or demolitions crew might use. This is pure speculation of course, please take it as such. What is interesting is the texture of the buildings themselves seems different from the photos below and from the videos. it's hard to tell, but compared to the photos below, could this one be real? We aren't sure, but what we do know is that there looks to be a visual inconsistency with the way the outside of the buildings look.

"Photomontage is the process and the result of making a composite photograph by cutting, gluing, rearranging and overlapping two or more photographs into a new image. Sometimes the resulting composite image is photographed so that a final image may appear as a seamless photographic print. A similar method, although one that does not use film, is realized today through image-editing software. This latter technique is referred to by professionals as "compositing", and in casual usage is often called "photoshopping" "

The Twin Towers Really Did Tower Over The Rest of The City: It Was A Huge Mass of Steel

 

"Whitehall is a road in the City of Westminster, in central London, which forms the first part of the A3212 road from Trafalgar Square to Chelsea. It is the main thoroughfare running south from the site of the original Charing Cross at the southern end of Trafalgar Square towards Parliament Square. Recognised as the centre of Her Majesty's Government, the street is lined with government departments and ministries; the name "Whitehall" is used as a metonym for British central governmental administration, and the geographic name for the surrounding area.

The name was taken from the vast Palace of Whitehall that occupied the area before its destruction by fire in 1698. Whitehall was originally a wide road that led to the front of the palace. Trafalgar Square was built at its northern extremity in the early 19th century. The southernmost portion between Parliament Square and Downing Street is named Parliament Street. Combined, Parliament Street and Whitehall cover a distance of about 0.6 mile (1 km).

Whitehall is known for its memorial statues and monuments, including Britain's primary war memorial, the Cenotaph."

From Word of Mouth Bull To Digitally Augmented Smart Phone Realities Ours Has Always Been a Virtual Reality

Culture and civilization is "virtual" to begin with. It is all artificial.

There are many techniques and many applications of special effects technology in one form or another. Augmented or Virtual Reality has always been around as long as culture has been at least, but now it's all digitally enhanced. The computer makes the older dark room and miniature techniques much easier to accomplish today. What once would need teams of specialized darkroom experts now can be done on one person's laptop.

UPDATE! - I have learned more about the fake 9/11 made-for-TV movie that aired Sept 11 of 01. I do not think that augmented reality was used to fake the planes. No insertion of a plane into live footage, pre-prepared fake CGI is more likely, in my opinion.

The Body of The Jet Cannot Just Magically Disintegrate.

Compare to this to the passenger jet junkyard video, above.

This is one example of many. Youtube is a Military Industrial Entertainment Propaganda outlet as well as being a really great resource for information. This is one of the reasons we must learn to think for ourselves and not turn to external authority as source of our individual views and opinions. Self education is a harder road, but a more rewarding one.

Incredible movie clip. An US F4 Phantom Jet tests the strength of a concrete wall built to withstand a nuclear blast by crashing into it at 500 MPH. A high rate FPS camera is used to watch the plane literally turn into dust.

The Military Industrial Complex has been selling photographic cartoons as physical fact for a century or so. They have been using the "dusitification" effect for a long time. This is clearly an example of a Hollywood style photographic film composite. A darkroom trick that the digital age makes all the easier to execute.
