The X-Files spinoff series, 'The Lone Gunmen,' had its pilot episode concerned with a federally-sanctioned/terrorist plot to fly an airplane by remote-control into the World Trade Center! The pilot was written by Chris Carter, Vince Gilligan, John Shiban and Frank Spotnitz.
'Despite the concerns of some fans, the plot of TLG is indeed part of the boxed set. This would seem like a no-brainer - until you realize that the central conspiracy in the episode involved high-tech electronic hijacking of a commercial airliner with the intent of crashing it into the WTC. Although the episode was conceived and shot in 2000 and aired 6 months before the tragic events of September 11, 2001, the eerie coincidence sent shockwaves through cast and producers.'
The following is a quote from Propaganda Matrix:
'The X-Files spinoff shows a government plan to remote-control a plane to crash into the WTC and trigger war just like Pentagon's Operation Northwoods. The only difference is that the airliner crew got help to unlock their flight controls and save all lives. Hollywood always lies about reality. The show premiered in March 2001...Ladies and gentlemen, this is either someone somewhere within the establishment trying to desperately get out a warning or it is more likely an evil government operation. The show has been used to subconsciously manipulate people to believe that if these events did actually happen, it would be like a film, not a part of reality, therefore we should not worry too much. Anyone who would dare say that the government were responsible for such terrorist attacks would immediately be branded a 'lunatic conspiracy theorist, like those guys from the X-Files.' This is one of the sickest depraved operations that could possibly be devised, it is conditioning on a mass scale.'
'In the early 1960s, America's top military leaders reportedly drafted plans to kill innocent people and commit acts of terrorism in U.S. cities to create public support for a war against Cuba. Code name Operation Northwoods, the plans reportedly included the possible assassination of Cuban emigres, sinking boats of Cuban refugees on the high seas, hijacking planes, blowing up a U.S. ship and even orchestrating violent terrorism in U.S. cities.'
- ABC 5/1/01
These were real terrorist acts planned by the American Joint Chief of Staff against its own population.
'In the two years before the September 11 attacks, the North American Aerospace Defense Command conducted exercises simulating what the White House says was unimaginable at the time: hijacking airliners used as weapons to crash into targets and cause mass casualties...one of the imagined targets was the World Trade Center. In a third scenario, the target was the Pentagon...'
- USA Today 4/18/04
Christopher Bollyn of the American Free Press reported the following in an article called '9/11 - What Did Rupert Murdoch Know?' More than a year before 9/11, media mogul and owner of Fox-TV, Rupert Murdoch produced a television program that depicted a passenger aircraft being remote-controlled and flown into the World Trade Center. Did he have prior knowledge of 9/11?
Murdoch is said to be television's most powerful man in the world with the capacity to reach more than 110 million viewers across four continents. Murdoch is a close friend of 'accused Israeli war criminal' and PM Ariel Sharon. An estimated 13.2 million Fox TV viewers watched the pilot episode of TLG broadcast on 3/4/01. When life imitated art just six months later on 9/11, no one in the media seemed to recall the program. Why was it so forgotten?
For those of you who missed TLG episode with the strange WTC prognostacation, here are some important lines from the show and the story:
The Lone Gunmen (Frohike, Langly and Byers) attend the funeral for John Byer's father. The report was that he died in a car crash. TLG are lead to believe he was murdered for what he knew. The wreck was staged to appear as an accident.
AGENT: 'He (Mr. Byers) had a conscience. Sometimes that's a problem in our line of work...He was upset about something he had found out.'
FROHIKE: 'Something's funky here. You're telling us the government is behind this?'
LANGLY (to agent): 'YOU'RE the government.'
BYERS: 'Dead man driving a car?'
They search for clues in Byer's father's apartment and find information on computer files. Later, Langly speaks to a fellow hacker to help him break through a D.O.D. encryption.
LANGLY: 'I'm talking about government-sanctioned murder here.'
HACKER: 'Like who shot J.R.?'
The Lone Gunmen meet Yves Adele Harlow who becomes a regular on the show. Her name is an anagram for Lee Harvey Oswald. The episode refers to JFK or there is an implication of that era three different times.
FROHIKE: 'You find out that your father was going to blow the whistle on the government. You find out they killed him for it.'
JOHN FITZGERALD BYERS: 'My father used to talk about JFK when I was a kid; Camelot, government as good as its people, the American Dream. I don't know when or why he stopped believing in it. But those stories made me who I am. They made me believe in the promise of our country.'
FROHIKE: 'Truth, justice, the American Way?'
BYERS: 'Someone has to expose those that would destroy that dream. Someone has to write the stories they don't want you to read...'
TLG find a computer chip in Byer's father's crashed car. It is an 'integrated antenna' that can remote-control the car.
FROHIKE: 'All you'd need is a handheld radio-controller to operate the car.'
LANGLY: 'And make it look like a dead man was driving.'
Later, the Gunmen put the clues together and hack through the encrypted files.
FROHIKE: 'What's Scenario 12D?'
LANGLY: 'Airline terrorism? That doesn't make sense.'
A window appears on the Lone Gunmen's computer that reads:
file info: Scenario_12D.txt
Domestic Airline In-Flight Terrorist Act
Their hacking is suddenly discovered and traced by the feds.
AGENT: 'I know who they are.'
Later, the agent again meets with the Lone Gunmen.
AGENT: 'But what reason did they have to kill your father? What were they trying to hide?'
BYERS: 'Something called Scenario 12D.'
LANGLY: 'We have to find out what Scenario 12D is.'
John Byers discovers that his father is alive! They encounter each other in his apartment. It was his father who faked his own death. This was so the feds (something called OVERLORD) would not be after him any more because of the big secret he had found.
BYERS (to his father): 'We know it's a wargame scenario, that it has to do with airline counter-terrorism. Why is it important enough to kill for?'
MR. BYERS: 'Because it is no longer a game.'
BYERS: 'If some terrorist group wants to act out this scenario, why target you for assassination?'
MR. BYERS: 'Depends on who your terrorists are.'
BYERS: '...The men who conceived of it in the first place. You're saying OUR GOVERNMENT PLANS TO COMMIT A TERRORIST ACT AGAINST A DOMESTIC AIRLINE...'
MR. BYERS: 'There you go...indicting the entire government as usual. It's a faction, a small faction.'
BYERS: 'For what possible gain?'
MR. BYERS: 'The Cold War is over, John. But with no clear enemy to stockpile against, the arm's market's flat. But, bring down a fully-loaded 727 into the middle of New York City and you'll find a dozen tin-pot dictators all over the world just clammering to take responsibility and begging to be smart-bombed.'
BYERS: 'I can't believe it. This is about increasing arms sales?...Why didn't you tell the world this? Go to the press?'
MR. BYERS: 'You think I'd still be drawing breath 30 minutes after I made that call? The Press? Who's gonna run the story?'
BYERS: 'We would.' (The Lone Gunmen).
MR. BYERS: 'This? This is birdcage liner...right up there with 'Elvis is an alien' and
'2-headed babies'...You stay out of it! I don't want OVERLORD gunning for you too.'
In the story, father and son board the very plane that they believe will be federally taken over by remote-control.
MR. BYERS: 'I still think we should call in a bomb threat, let the FBI deal with this.'
BYERS: 'Until we know the full extent of this conspiracy, we can't trust any government official.'
OVERLORD agents monitor both Byers on the plane.
AGENT: 'They're boarding...then that's two problems solved...'
BYERS: 'You absolutely sure that this is the targeted flight?'
MR. BYERS: 'This flight was chosen primarily for its visibility. It's scheduled to pass over Manhattan on its way to Boston.'
BYERS: 'You said they intend to bring this down in the middle of New York City. What if there isn't a bomb?'
MR. BYERS: 'Then, how are they going to bring it down?'
BYERS: 'The same way a dead man can drive a car.'
FROHIKE and LANGLY: 'What do you mean there's no bomb?'
Langly hacks into the flight control system output and communicates with Byers.
LANGLY: 'Remote access. Somebody on the ground is flying your plane...Your flight is going to make an unscheduled stop.'
FROHIKE: 'Corner of Liberty and Washington. Lower Manhattan.'
BYERS: 'World Trade Center. They're going to crash the plane into the World Trade Center!'
The pilots eventually listen to Mr. Byers and turn off the Auto-Pilot. They find that they do not have control of the airplane.
[There are scenes, amazing aerial-camera-shots, of New York at night. The camera is mounted on front of the plane and we viewers see the large 727 heading for the Twin Towers! From the viewer's P.O.V., we are flying directly into the WTC at night. Eerie, shocking, bizarre and other adjectives can describe the FEELING we have seeing this and KNOWING what is going to happen 6 months and a week after the episode's airdate].
The Lone Gunmen hack through the remote-control and regain manual override just in time. The disaster of a domestic airlines crashing into the World Trade Center has been averted. Father and son talk after the near tragedy.
BYERS: 'With your testimony we can break this conspiracy down, the whole operation...'
MR. BYERS: 'I didn't want you wasting your life tilting at windmills.'
BYERS: 'You're not going to testify? You're going to let them cover this up?'
MR. BYERS: 'My silence will keep me alive. I know, you and your friends are fighting for the American Dream. Just don't expect to win.'
Does this writer believe TLG pilot episode was PROPHECY? No, that was to get your attention. Was this a sheer COINCIDENCE? Most people, when made aware of the foreshadowing episode, would think it was just a quirk of fate. How odd... But, what if it was not a coincidence? What if everything is connected and conspiracies are truly everywhere? Then: Why did THEY air to the masses, to millions of the viewing public, their real life intentions of bringing down the Towers? Knowing Murdoch's connections, knowing how secret societies control the world, this writer does not put anything passed the rulers who operate from the darkness.
The film 'Pearl Harbor' was playing in theaters when the WTC fell and that was NOT a coincidence. THEY move us to war by subtle manipulation. The weak-minded march to war and the strong fight against the brainwashing. Read my article called 'The Great 9/11 Magick Trick.' There are underground documentaries such as 'In Plane Site,' '9/11 The Great Illusion' and 'Painful Deceptions' to only mention a few. These controversial sources provide evidence that our dear authorities, the ones we pay our taxes to, did indeed crash two unmanned (radio-controlled) planes into the World Trade Center on 9/11. The guilty parties were not Middle-East terrorists. The true monsters behind it were far closer to home. (Write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll tell you how to obtain these shocking documentaries).
My view is that The Lone Gunmen's glimpse into what will happen to the Towers was not a coincidence. That is what THEY do. They shove their fascism, their power over us, in our face and expect us to take it with a smile. Just the fact that the show involved the WTC...the weapon of destruction was the airlines...and that the story involved REMOTE-CONTROL is simply amazing! Few people understand that the media's purpose is LIES AND DECEPTION. Remote-control, computer-guidance systems brought a grey/windowless and EMPTY plane crashing into the second Tower. The REAL 9/11 plane, filled with passengers, was rerouted and landed in Ohio stated one news report. We can only imagine the dark fate of those 9/11 passengers who safely LANDED. No plane struck the Pentagon, that Tuesday morning, and the plane in Pennsylvania was shot down like Flight 800. There is only one terrorist in town. At least, The Lone Gunmen's pilot episode pointed the finger at the real terrorists: US. Who profits from arming the world and spreading chaos? We do. Who are the only ones with Weapons of Mass Destruction? We are. Other countries have the Bomb because WE gave it to them.
Another oddity that should not be ignored is the numerous references to the Kennedy assassination in this particular pilot episode. Why? Could it be, back in 1963, that was another terrorist act perpetrated by our Shadow Government and not some bogus patsy or scapegoat?
The Lone Gunmen pilot episode aired in Australia less than two weeks before 9/11. The cancellation of TLG is considered to be somewhat mysterious, as its ratings were in fact higher than the first season of the X-Files. DVD sales of The Lone Gunmen are high because of the prophetic pilot. The actor who played John Byers' father is George Coe. Coincidently, he also played the character of Ben Cheviot, the head of Network 23 on the series Max Headroom. 'Max...' was another short-lived series that may have gotten the axe because of its controversial subjects.
My memory of the pilot Lone Gunmen episode, I thought, had to do with a water-engine automobile. This was one of their episodes entitled 'Like Water For Octane.' Was the episode substituted for the real pilot, not aired in my area? Who knows? We, the audience, are naive and believe that these expose shows are really uncovering some truths in primetime. Do not believe that for a second. The X-Files, Lone Gunmen, Discovery Channel, History Channel, etc., reveal nothing that THEY do not want you to know. Television, movies, the news, the newspapers are not going expose the truth or any real secrets. Instead, they are part of a much larger problem. There is an OVERLORD and they ruthlessly rule the world.
* * *
PS: On the subject of Chris Carter's 'The X-Files,' who says the popular and successful television series exposed any truths/secrets at all? There are certainly real world facts to support ideas such as Super Soldiers, ancient aliens, present aliens, governments working with aliens, alien virus/cure, alien technology, saucers, a secret 'Syndicate' elite and a host of other themes that were a part of the primetime show. The question is: Was The X-Files an expose or a part of the UFO cover-up and propaganda? Was it disinformation, on a weekly basis, over the airwaves for 9 years?
A clue could be contained in a particular episode where David Duchovny as Mulder talks about the Alien Autopsy. He says to Scully, 'you know, that bogus Alien Autopsy that the Fox Network aired.' Now, what's wrong with this picture? Whether the AA is credible or not, it was out of character for Fox Mulder to have been the skeptic. If anyone would have been open to the Autopsy's reality, it would have been Mulder. Subtle manipulation for the masses to NEVER believe such a thing?
There were episodes that dealt with the American government mass-murdering and secretly getting away with it. Then, like clockwork, someone would come in with a comment saying 'the government wouldn't DO that.' It has to be some 'Shadow Government,' a 'small faction,' a 'rogue' group within the government that are the guilty parties and the ones responsible for the destruction. It is not the whole Government that is bad, just this small part over there (yeah, the few who control everything).
What were show's catch phrases?
'THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE.'
'TRUST NO ONE' (not even the ones who bring you this program)
'I WANT TO BELIEVE.'
If we were not dealing with the Monster-of-the-Week, then The X-Files was concerned with their overall story of the alien agenda and the human Syndicate. Featuring the Cigarette-Smoking-Man, these were primarily men who operated unrestrained at the highest levels of power. They were government officials, wealthy businessmen and an alien or two in human disguise. Does an omniscient elite rule the world? Is there some real world truth to MAGNETITE being the Super Soldier's kryptonite? Is their Achilles' heel in the back of the neck? Does the 'black oil' virus have a parallel in the real world?
In this writer's opinion The X-Files and spin-off show, The Lone Gunmen, were a part of the problem and not a part of the solution. Special information or disinformation? The answer must be disinformation. In the same way that some UFO organizations have been infiltrated by government agents, so are the airwaves federally sanctioned and approved. The Government owns the media. THEY will not allow any would-be Lone Gunmen to air federal, dirty laundry to the masses. Media is never going to really criticize the government, like a TV show will never really criticize their sponsor. I believe the idea (of primetime) is to tease and intrigue you with the secret truth...then, at the end, dovetail you away from that truth.
The UFO enthusiasts LOVED The X-Files, at first, and I'm sure many still do. But the more you scrutinize something, the more you discover what you thought was true...is not anymore. The following is another excerpt from The Lone Gunmen series, an episode called 'Like Water For Octane.' The story concerned the suppression of a water-powered, car engine. WATER-ENGINES are not just a fictional fabrication. They have been purposely NOT developed in the real world. Look up their underground history. (See the film 'The Water-Engine' with William H. Macy).
FROHIKE: 'This is it. I remember the extra attachment on the carburetor.'
GIRL: 'Dad made a vow...to hide this car and never tell anyone about it.'
FROHIKE: 'This is wonderful.'
GIRL: 'And now we have to destroy it.'
FROHIKE: 'What the hell are you talking about?'
GIRL: 'That's what my father really wanted only he couldn't bring himself to do it. He knew the world shouldn't have this.'
LANGLY: 'Why not?'
BYERS: 'Why on Earth shouldn't there be a cheap, pollution-free, alternative to gasoline?'
YVES: 'Think what it would do for the Global Economy.'
GIRL: 'Send it through the roof.'
GIRL: 'Lead to a HUGE development boom throughout the world.'
FROHIKE: 'Damn straight!'
GIRL: 'It'd mean more people driving cars. More people building more places to go in those cars. More people, more consumption, more trees cut down. More roads laid in. What do you pave roads with, by the way? OIL, the same oil you use to lubricate a water-powered car. The same oil that goes into all the plastics that make the tail lights, the bumpers, the tires and just about everything else on the planet these days. And, we'd have 400 million cars on the road instead of 200 million. It doesn't sound like Utopia to me.'
BYERS: 'I think you're overstating it.'
GIRL: 'It wouldn't happen overnight, but it would happen.'
GOV. AGENT (surprises them): 'You're forgetting something. We're running out of oil. This invention is going to keep us from going back to horse-drawn carriages.'
FROHIKE: 'You don't want to destroy the car?'
GOV. AGENT: 'Absolutely not. I want to give it to the world and make BILLIONS off of it.'
At the end of the story, the threatening agent is stopped and the Gunmen help suppress the water-car. Jimmy Bond, the 4th Gunmen, narrates the final scene as Frohike takes a wonderful joyride.
BOND: 'So, that's how history is made...not the kind of history you read in books...I'm talking history that no one even knows about. Except it happened, it changed the world by not changing the world. And sometimes, maybe not changing the world is a GOOD thing. What about that water-powered car? Obviously, you don't have one in your driveway so you know it didn't wind up in Detroit. But, it didn't get destroyed either. It's still out there waiting for a day when smart people of integrity get together and figure out a way to use it for the betterment of ALL mankind...kind of like the Atom Bomb. But, for one shining moment, one brief afternoon, it was magical.'
In these days of super-high gas prices, we are DYING for a water-engine...or hovercrafts. Why this TLG argument falls flat is the water-engine is POLLUTION-FREE and environmentally safe. Also, there are alternatives like NATURAL and PLENTIFUL HEMP SEED OIL that could perfectly fit the bill as an alternative to ALL OUR OIL NEEDS! That fact is not readily broadcasted over the Oil Company-owned media. We choose not to change to better alternatives because THEY are in control and keep certain facts from us...for reasons of PROFIT. We, the people. are not in control. THEY are and they use entertainment, films, TV, etc. to maintain their control over the masses. Do you think it's a coincidence that Mulder was given the name FOX on the Fox Network? The character was their puppet from the beginning.
How dare THEY justify the non-use and non-marketing of a water-engine in TLG episode?! And, it's the GOV. AGENT who essentially is the progressive, forward-thinker by wanting to develop it? How's that for an evil twist? Do you really want to argue against this being PROGRAMMING?
