So, I hope this is settled.

Halfway through Chapter Four, indeed about previous false flags. Oklahoma City LOL, I learned some things about that. Pearl Harbor and Gulf of Tonkin coming, but I think I'll skim or even skip that and go directly to Chapter Five next time I pick up the book, where he apparently finally landed on the ground and on the day - title "What didn't happen", page 95.
Warm feelings didn't prompt my response. Icke's "fill-in-the-blanks" MO with regard to anything and everything in his world view doesn't convey pertinent information as much as he attempts to prop up his CT.

The inference made by Icke is that GW I & II are some cobbled up series of events absent the underlying issues. He also wants to re-brand the underlying issues as part of a devilish clever plan of the reptilians.

I'd respect the man a hell of a lot more if his position was "look at this set of ********!" and "look at this other set of ********!" "they're a bunch of goddamn crooks!" instead of the "reptilian overlord grand unification theory of evil" nonsense.

You think he'd be any less of a scumbag if he dropped the Alien story?

David Icke is a professional conspiracy theorist.

David Icke, a professional conspiracy theorist. Good name, Icke.

Therefore:
Icke thinks the 'Global Elite' and/or Illuminati 'Global Elite', did the Oklahoma City bombing. Good one David Icckeee, it was McVeigh, a nut; a nut like David Icke.

David supports that Pearl Harbor was a false flag operation. Is Bigfoot part of the conspiracies?

David Icke is a professional conspiracy theorist, selling dumbed down claims to idiots who can't think for themselves.

True, but Icke's Reptilian crap is so over the top that most Conspiracy Theorist shun him.

As I recall, he's actually gotten angry at neo-Nazis who've claimed that all his work is "really" about the Jews. He is actually, seriously, talking about Space Lizards. He's just honestly crazy, not neo-Nazi fake crazy.

So at least he's got that going for him.

There's a whole Jon Ronson documentary about it. "The Lizards and the Jews":

I AGREE


I realized by now that what he did in Chapter One is defining his terms, which is a good thing to do. So further into the book, one knows what he means by "ultra-Zionists" opposed to "the Hidden Hand™".

The Hidden Hand. That's why they called all those hand checks on school bus trips.

I skimmed it. Waco was also in there and a better summary than "previous false flags" would be "previous cover-ups".

The number of non-antisemites who believe the Protocols are real and the Holocaust was faked is precisely zero.

Nope.

There's plenty to dislike.

Of course there are Space Lizards, and what's more, Nick Fury and SHIELD are in on the cover up!

Chapter Five is an 11 pages summary of the official record about the history of each plane from start over communication to end, with times and including names of crew, terrorists and the reported passengers including Barbara Olson, Todd Beamer and Mark Bingham.
