As I reported at Armageddon Prose a few months back, Tucker Carlson – shortly before he was taken off the air at Fox, coincidentally or not -- crossed the 9/11 Rubicon, speculating in public about whether or not the government's official story about 9/11 was bullshit (spoiler: it was).
(click link for Twitter video)
“If you say, like, ‘What actually happened with building 7? Like that is weird, right? It doesn’t—like, what is that?’… If you were to say something like that on television, they’d flip out. They would flip out. So you’d, like, lose your job over that."
9/11 "conspiracy theories" have long been considered a third rail in American politics – off-limits to respectable candidates and pundits. Anyone considered a "serious" candidate wouldn't touch 9/11 truth with a ten-foot pole.
But we're in a different time now. The nearly limitless, unfathomable lies and abuses perpetrated by the corporate state over the past few years in the name of Public Health™ have finally managed to awaken enough of the voting public to make indulging in "conspiracy theorizing" non-disqualifiable.
So it is that 2024 Vivek Ramaswamy – in second behind Trump in the primary race by some estimates – has followed Tucker Carlson where few politicians of his profile have dared tread on, appropriately, Carlson's X/Twitter show:
"The government absolutely lied to us. The 9-11 commission lied. The FBI lied…
In response to a question, I’m going to answer honestly based on the facts….
There are real consequences for this right now because there is a federal case of families of victims on 9/11 that want accountability, that are demanding answers. So they are suing the Saudi government and the case turns out whether or not [Saudi state involvement in 9/11] is true…
So this is a relevant question."
(I have previously written about the two 9/11 hijackers reportedly recruited and groomed by a joint US/Saudi intelligence operation.)
While implicating the Saudi government in 9/11 is tantamount to dipping his toes in the water – the deception goes far deeper – it's a first step for Ramaswamy that, I believe, signals a sea-change in the trust, or lack thereof, that Americans have in the government that presides over them.

My Plan B Blueprint to Become Anti-fragile
The US and US dollar are clearly deteriorating. And there is a lot of danger in having too much exposure to a crumbling empire.
That is why I have a Plan B, which has allowed me to:
- Cut my tax rate to 4%
- Use that savings to invest in real assets, precious metals, and crypto
- Gain a second residency and apply for a second passport
- Diversify internationally
And much more.
A Plan B gives you the tools to respond to whatever the world throws at you from a position of strength.
