Charlie Hebdo: No Wonder There Are Conspiracy Theories

With a little distance between us and the Charlie Hebdo killings, questions remain unanswered and are likely to remain so. These questions inspire conspiracy theories, which in turn trigger authority worshippers to dismiss anyone who asks legitimate questions as ‘right wing nut jobs’. The problem here is, as with Flight MH17, Flight MH370, the Sandy Hook school shooting and the big one, 9/11 what we see on the television screen or read in the news is so far removed from any rational sequence of events, people are bound to wonder what actually happened, how it happened, what were the real motives and by whom. Today, we are informed that al-qaeda are responsible for the Charlie Hebdo attack but:

The Charlie Hebdo attack began around 11.30 am (CET) on 7 January 2015. Immediately, a specialist cop with relevant experience – Helric Fredou – was assigned to the case. He had been an anti-terrorist Special Branch (SRPJ) police officer since 2011. He worked all day assessing film, recordings, identity details. He stopped for neither lunch nor dinner, but did phone one family member and “express concerns” about some of the stuff he’d seen. Just after 1 am the next morning, he died from a bullet wound to the head. The verdict was suicide resulting from depression. Why would an officer suffering from clinical depression be given the nations most important investigation if he was known to to mentally unstable?

There was a clip of film, almost immediately released that was quite obviously edited before release. The crazed killer who ‘finishes off’ officer Ahmed Merabet with an AK47 from point blank range should have blown the officers head off and splattered it all over the street – not a single drop of blood was seen on the film. Either the shot missed, or it was a blank. We are assured Ahmed Merabet died from that shot. He didn’t. Where is he? The actual film clip is now difficult to locate but you can view this one – spot the blood from the still image a second or two after the trigger was pulled – you can’t.

Those are two of the questions going viral at the moment. I have no answers. I do not question the fact that people were killed in a Paris street last week but I am also aware that we live in an age of spin and deception so I neither believe nor disbelieve official or unofficial explanations.

For example, one of the long running conspiracy arguments concerns the death of President Kennedy. I have never given any attention to this, I was only fifteen when it happened. Thus I have never seen the newsreel footage of the bullets hitting him.

The official story has always been that a lone gunman, Lee Harvey Oswald, killed the President.

Without seeking it out, while checking out details of the Charlie Hebdo story, I found myself watching that old newsreel. And clearly The President was hit twice by shots fired from different directions. And the second shot, to the head, shattered Kennedy’s skull so that blood and tissue sprayed around (see second point above).

Clearly there are questions about Kenndey’s death, who fired the second shot and why was the news falsified at the very least?

Just as clearly there are questions to be asked about the Charlie Hebdo massacre. This blog will not be asking them,but we will not join the neo fascists who support such abuse of authority by trying to dismiss as crazy those who do ask and keep asking.

Labour’s Great Triumph Over Child Poverty

On the first day of the Labour Party conference the boy politician Davo Milliband said the party must be more positive in talking about its successes.

One of those successes, a resounding triumph according to Labour leaders has been in reducing child poverty. Labour politicians are always banging on about it.

How ironic then that young Davo should bring up the topic of Labour’s successes in words addressed to delegates to the Labour conference in Manchester on the same day that a new report revealed 1 in 4 among children in the North West is living below the official poverty level.

Wonder if Davo has any thoughts on how to be positive about that.

While we are on the topic of poverty it is perhaps worth remembering that one of Labour’s most iconic figures from the past, Aneurin Bevan, said “poverty of aspiration leads to poverty of spirit.”
So there you have it. Poverty is not just about money.
