I have in recent weeks been intermittently concerned with some disturbing features of the official 9-11 story, a story that does not, in my opinion, wash. What has always profoundly disturbed me was that the operation was conducted as strikes against symbols, not of American culture and achievement - we can easily imagine such structures - nor of American society or politics - and again, we can easily imagine such structures - but against symbols of American power, the World Trade Center, and the Pentagon (if, for the moment, we accept the official explanations for the sake of argument).

Consider only the symbolism of the World Trade Center Twin Towers, conceived under the inspiration of David and Nelson Rockefeller, themselves symbols of the American corporate-military-intelligence-banking complex. As such, the Towers represented a message. There is an additional symbolism, in that the Towers can stand as the Masonic Pillars Jachin and Boaz, found in any Masonic Blue Lodge. This symbolism has always bothered me, for while I put nothing past the machinations of the corporate elite, it always struck me as extremely incongruous that this elite should strike at such symbols of its own power in such an overt way, if the goal were simply to create, ala the scenario of the 9-11 truthers, a "new Pearl Harbor" to whip up enthusiasm for military adventurism in the Middle East. Almost any building could have done, why target the symbolic nerve center at all?

This thought has always led me to entertain the possibility that there may have been a third layer, deeply embedded within the other two, and operating unbeknownst to either, and striking at a symbol and visibly declaring war against the hidden faction it represented, namely, the "Rockefeller" interest, for want of a better expression. This could be, admittedly, almost anyone, but the symbolism does serve somewhat as a template to restrict possible contenders: the rival Rothschild interest and its deep ties to Israel, or, conversely, a group wanting to "pay back" the American power elite for "past wrongs done," and hiding behind terrorists, and, if Dr. Judy Wood is correct, with access to a sophisticated EM weapons technology. There are several candidates here: Russia, China, or even my hypothesized "Nazi International."

The symbolism struck that day  is corroborated by the Pentagon as well, an obviously occult shape, embodying the pentagram of Venus, another obvious Masonic connection, and yet another symbol of the hidden power that has so guided Anglo-American history, not to mention the obvious symbolism of the Pentagon as a symbol of American military power. This selection of symbols of financial and military power that are also deeply entwined with the symbolisms of Western esotericism has always argued, persuasively in my opinion, that the selection of targets was not the haphazard selection of radical Islamic terrorists; the calculated psychological effect here seems too deep for that. The symbolism suggests that a war was begun that day, an invisible war, which, were the truth to be known, would shock most Americans, and so it must be cloaked behind the cover story of a "war on terror" and an assymetrical, invisible enemy in possession of extraordinary technology. Consider only the fact that since then, the first level of that operation - the radical Islamic one - has only been able to mount the occasional attack with conventional bombs. Nothing like the sophistication suggested by the collapse of the Twin Towers. And since 9-11, we have had a number of suspicious "seismic events," first in Haiti, then in Chile...more recently, in Japan and Virginia.

I cannot shake the gut intuition that the invisible war that was begun that day has that New York City elite frantically scrambling to shore up the edges of the American empire, and that we have not seen the end of "strange events" and symbols that need to be carefully pondered.

    To tie together two recent thoughts: if 911 was a symbolic strike against American power, why would it have been necessary to pulverize the towers? Wouldn’t the airplane strike itself make the point almost as dramatically without requiring extra measures to insure complete demolition?

  2. bdw on September 25, 2011 at 11:57 pm

    OK Joe, if 9-11 had nothing to do with Islamic terrorists (something I doubt also), then why 10 years of military action/occupation of Iraq and Afganistan/Pakistan, with Iran supposedly next on the list?

    I am not arguing, just wondering if you have any thoughts on that besides the usual “oil” explanation??

    • Joseph P. Farrell on September 26, 2011 at 12:03 pm

      IN my opinion, it’s simple…religion, false fulfillments, and ancient technology.

  3. Antidote on September 25, 2011 at 9:17 pm

    Joseph have you checked out the Red Ice Radio interviews with the late Rick Clay where he outlined the amount of times the number 11 comes into play with the 9/11 attacks?

    If not..

    Quite fascinating how often the number 11 crops up in all of it.

  4. Thomas Mattingly on September 25, 2011 at 1:20 am

    Hi, Joseph, Ken et al ~

    FYI: See “New Theory Explains Collapse of World Trade Center’s Twin Towers” at &

    With the blessing of SINTEF, Christian Simensen is the SINTEF materials scientist who advanced this new hypothesis in the May/June 2011 issue of “Aluminum International Today.” See SINTEF employs 2,100+ scientists & staff from 67 nations; is the largest independent research organization in Scandinavia; and is the Norwegian acronym for Foundation for Scientific & Industrial Research.

    Excerpt from 21-Sep-11 Science Daily article: “According to a theory advanced by a SINTEF materials scientist, a mixture of water from sprinkler systems and molten aluminium from melted aircraft hulls created explosions that led to the collapse of the Twin Towers in Manhattan…. The explosions fed the conspiracy theories that someone had placed explosives inside the towers.”

    Excerpt from prior 9/11 comment (at “However, similar to the ‘Controlled Demolition’ & ‘Mini-Nukes’ hypotheses, attributing all 9/11 effects to planes & fuel content alone [and/or to the new SINTEF ‘Exploding Aluminum/Water Theory’], IMHO, does not account for all 9/11 physical effects & results produced. Examples: 1) WTC buildings 1, 2 & 7 and most contents were pulverized into nanometer-sized dust – with much anomalous molecular disassociation; 2) ALL WTC file cabinets (except one) were destroyed, but much paper content from ~50,000+ WTC file cabinets did NOT burn; and 3) Up to 2,500+ ft. from the WTC site, 1,400+ cars & trucks were anomalously & differentially ‘toasted.’ See AND”

    Although the phallic symbolism of the WTC tower targets is a quasi-persistent 9/11 meme, few comment on possible female symbolism of the Pentagon ring as a 9/11 target. The U.S. Department of War (now DoD) began to construct the Pentagon on September 11, 1941. Shortly thereafter, Hitler & the Nazis diligently planned to target New York City – to terrorize the USA. Hmmm…

    IMHO, we may not understand the symbolism of the 9/11 events until we examine the motivations of those who benefited from 9/11 (likely to be the 9/11 prime perps). For a basic Who-Benefits analysis, extending beyond the “9/11 Inside Job” hypothesis to a more international set of oligarchic Who-Benefits players, see (on Fukushima & 9/11).

    Joseph, you may be quite correct in saying that whoever is creating the massive fear, doubt, chaos & confusion of 9/11, 7/7-London, 3/11-Madrid & 3/11-Japan appears to be hurrying to accomplish some yet-to-be-known purpose. One reason may be that certain cycles are coming to a close, after which a new wave of cycles may undulate across our world. You discussed some of these cycles in “Babylon’s Banksters” & in interviews – especially those cycles that affect economic markets.

    The private-bank, principal-but-no-interest, debt-money cycle, established in 1913 with the Federal Reserve Act, created a spiraling cycle designed to end in about 100 years (i.e., now). Except for pre- & post-9/11 ‘bubbles,’ this still escalating interest-debt-money cycle would have already ended – when debts & debt interest became unpayable. When debtors default, ‘Banksters’ seize collateral and/or gain more power. When nations cannot repay interest & debt (due to social and/or war-defense spending), the ‘Banksters’ gain more power in & over such nations.

    Those who perpetrated 9/11 reasonably foresaw that the U.S. would spend huge sums of money to defeat the threats that our ‘leaders’ chose to identify. On 9/11/01, with 45 military drills leaving NYC & DC virtually unprotected, and with Air Force One being radioed & threatened (“Angel Is Next”) using Top Secret military & nuke launch codes, ‘ONYA’ (Osama & Nineteen Young Arabs – The Official 9/11 Conspiracy Theory) might not have been our prime perps. Since 9/11 (1941 & 2001), U.S. military spending has contributed more to the national debt than social/other spending.

    Regardless, after Daddy Bush’s Boy George landed at Offutt Air Force Base in Oklahoma & met Warren Buffett, GW Bush returned to Washington & addressed the nation with a call for a ‘War on Terror’ – against ‘ONYA’ & their Muslims-only gang. The ‘Clash of Civilizations’ of devil-god-worshipping & godless (Middle)-Easterners versus god-full Westerners was then the game. Ever since, we’ve been playing this no-win game in a no-win manner. (Q: “Whom would Jesus bomb?”)

    Joseph, you say: “I cannot shake the gut intuition that the invisible war that was begun that day has that New York City elite frantically scrambling to shore up the edges of the American empire, and that we have not seen the end of ‘strange events’ and symbols that need to be carefully pondered.”

    Strange days indeed. A more scientific & better predicting interpretation of the Mayan Calendar has this calendar ending on or about 28 October 2011 (not in December 2012) – culminating in a ‘Transformation of Consciousness.’ See audios & links at “Surfing the Mayan 9th Wave” at

    A critical mass of critical thinkers may know that the old ‘new order’ is spiritually, geopolitically, & geoeconomically dead. If so, then how long this old order persists & what new consciousness takes its place may be ours to choose. Symbolically & otherwise, we create this new order as we think, as we speak, as we choose & as we act. Symbolically & otherwise, we are what we choose.

    • Joseph P. Farrell on September 25, 2011 at 1:33 am

      I agree…this is why I keep encouraging people to quit thinking apocalyptically, and to pray, to love, to be genuinely good.

    • paraschtick on September 26, 2011 at 2:06 am

      Just to repeat myself again (lol), Benyamin Netanyahu wrote a book in 1986 which created the so called “War on Terror’. He was really good friends (and I mean they would chat every week on the phone together!) with Larry Silverstein … As you Americans say, “You do the Math” … [the perps are there right in front of your very eyes …].

      Oh and talking about 911 symbolism check out the work of William Ramsay (he’s been a guest on (the legendary) Vyzygoth’s Think or Be Eaten podcast a couple of times now). I think people like him and Dr Farrell may be on to something there. There are (just a hunch really) shades of JFK and “King Kill 33” about 911. Of course, I still have no real idea whether practising the occult in any shape or form actually does anything really (although it may be as Dr Farrell says that it may be able to affect the shape of reality … or “something” lol), but its enough that “they” believe it [just look at Bohemian Grove etc … “they” love ritual].

      Oh and Christian, check out a (rather far fetched link in my opinion) at the previously mentioned, Vyzygoth’s website:

      That will keep you going with the 911 symbolism in films for ages lol.

      [Oh and just found the link for William Ramsey. Its:]

      Best wishes

  5. Christian de Coninck Lucas on September 24, 2011 at 8:52 am

    You want symbolism? Get your Matrix DVD or blu-ray, skip to the scene where Agent Smith first interrogates Thomas Anderson (aka NEO), freeze the image when Smith quickly reviews the folder, frame forward to the ID page, look at the scan of the passport…..

    I shit you not, the expiration date is September 11th, 2001. In a movie FILLED with encoded information. From 1999.

  6. Ken Lemon on September 23, 2011 at 3:13 pm

    In essence and considering Dr. Judy Wood’ research, I cannot see anyone BUT the Americans having this DEW technology.

    If it’s not the USA, then it has to be the post war Nazi’, following Dr. Farrell’ Red Ice Radio interview.

    Can I suggest to the people who come here to go and download all of Dr. Farrell’ interviews, and then you might get a hold of what he is talking about.

    As I said before gere, the “Black Op’s” interview is a killer.

    • Joseph P. Farrell on September 23, 2011 at 3:17 pm

      Thanks Ken….yea it helps to be familiar with the interviews, although one cannot blame others for not having the time to listen to all of them.

  7. Robert Barricklow on September 23, 2011 at 12:55 pm

    It does ring a bell!
    But, there is still, a deeper level.

    • Joseph P. Farrell on September 23, 2011 at 3:17 pm

      OK….I’ll bite. What do you think the deeper level is?

  8. Tono on September 23, 2011 at 11:01 am

    Dr. Farrell, what do you think about the chilean miners event?
    Quite interesting, to me…
    But I´m afraid I missed the message: I would bet that you could bring some light on the subject.

    Still on symbolism, I noticed that in your last “nefarium”, you had “The Game” on your bookshelf. Could you share with us you opinion on that?

    Thank you!

    • Joseph P. Farrell on September 23, 2011 at 12:31 pm

      As I’ve indicated before, I haven’t yet read The Master Game, only glanced at it. From my brief glance, I think the book could have been much more detailed.

  9. Citizen Quasar on September 23, 2011 at 10:24 am

    I like your books, Joseph, and I will read them all as time and money allow (I am in Part III of “Reich of the Black Sun” right now.) Generally, I enjoy reading your blog and often commenting. Yet I have come across an aspect of your personality that I do NOT like, that I find not only dichotomous but also repulsive.

    You keep pretending that there is some “elite” [UGH!!! The word is “Looters!”] force in America that seeks to establish and empower an “American” empire. You keep pretending that somewhere in the upper echelons of the New World Order there are power mongers who are PATRIOTIC(?), are acting in the name of America as if they, after doing everything they can to rape, pillage, and clap the ashes of this Once Great republic, have some allegiance to traditional American values of freedom, independence, an valuing human life and are invading country after country in this same name.

    They don’t have ANY allegiance to America, Joseph, not a fire-trucking one. Yet every few posts you post something about this “American empire” with the definite explicit implication that the people behind this whole charade of Amerika invading ever increasing land areas of this planet somehow consider themselves “Americans.”

    GEE-ZUSS. I heard as much from an (ex-)friend saying that the reason Bush, et al., were NOT behind or conspiring to pull off 9/11 was because, in the final analysis, they ARE Americans and, therefore, they WOULDN’T do such a thing to America. I am beginning to wonder if you have a mental disorder because of your insistence that there is some sort of “American faction” with some form of patriotic bend.

    Aaron Russo, before his death, spoke of one of the Rockefellers informing him ahead of time about the upcoming 9/11 event. So it sure isn’t them.

    As for symbolism in the Two Towers of the WTC and the events of 9/11/01, I have always considered the two towers to represent Isis and Osiris, much predating and on a much deeper level than some Masonic wanabee copy-cat mumbo jumbo.

    While I am NOT sure what Isis and Osiris stand for, there is surely symbolism in these Two Towers as illustrated by Jordan Maxwell here:

    And along these lines, there are two towers here too:,r:6,s:0&tx=97&ty=75

    • Joseph P. Farrell on September 23, 2011 at 12:34 pm

      Well I am sorry that you find certain aspects of my personality repulsive, but I think you’re misunderstanding my views a bit. My real point has always been that there may be a group or faction within the NWO groups that are fighting each other, NOT that they are particularly “moral” or “patriotic” or what have you.

      • Citizen Quasar on September 23, 2011 at 3:51 pm

        OK. I offer my apology for saying as much. I accept that I may have misunderstood you.

        As an explanation of my thought processes, looking at your original post above, it appeared to me that you were saying that the American so called “elitists” took a hit on 9/11 and that they were NOT involved in pulling it off while it appears obvious to me that they were not only involved but helped plan and coordinate it with zero affection toward America.

        While I DO agree with you that there ARE factions within the world “elite” that war against each other as the RING OF POWER can only be worn on one finger, I see them aligning more along ideological or familial lines than along geographical lines.

        I thank you for your understanding and your patience with me.

        I also thank you for your authorship of a FINE series of books.

        Inasmuch as I am curious about the meaning of “Two Towers” as outlined in my links above, do you address this in any of your books and, if so, which one(s)? If not, any thoughts on this matter?

        • Joseph P. Farrell on September 23, 2011 at 4:30 pm

          I do not address 9/11 in any of my books… if that’s what you’re asking. I DO talk about it in various interviews. But I also believe that 9/11 was an op within and op within an op. I have no difficulty believing that some “American” component plotted or at least allowed it to happen, but I do believe that the deepest players were not American at all, and that the events of that day, in SOME respects, took them by surprise. But that is the subject, perhaps, of another book, if I ever get around to it.

          • Jabrinka on September 24, 2011 at 12:55 pm

            For sure an op within an op.. if one thing those elitists managed to piggyback a dozen or more tasks from one disaster..first all that asbestos covering all the structural members was going to have to be removed at great expense, then there was the evidence for the Tyco, Worldcom, Enron (and who knows what other) trials destroyed in Bld 7..the entire complex was a huge money loser with lots of vacant space. I thought it was the Bush-Cheney crowd until I heard Tarpley enlarge on the additional rogue factions inhabiting our fed.. In closing.. organized elitist oligarchs? If plumbers and grocery store check out personnel can organize why can’t industrialists and financiers ?

  10. Vinnie on September 23, 2011 at 6:30 am

    How then do the follow up anthrax letters that contained a strain that was traced back to Ft. Dietrich fit into the puzzle if not as a follow on to insure the ongoing meme that the fatherland was under seige and in need of the emergency package of terrorist legislation that we now know was already written and waiting to be sprung on an unsuspecting public? And how does the new revelation of direct Saudi involvement in the attack come into play?
