USA:  Empire of Deception
Meetings # 3,404 - 
In this presentation historian Ted Aranda continues his examination of the numerous state-terrorist / false-flag episodes in recent American history.  Specific topics will include the so-called mass shooting in Orlando and the physics of 9/11.  These matters are of absolutely vital importance to all Americans. A government that can slaughter 3,000 random, innocent people on its own soil for the purpose of advancing its hyper neo-imperialist agenda (with no consequences whatsoever) can and will perpetrate all manner of further devious, diabolical attacks and hoaxes on the population.
