I just registered, so here's my handshake: I'm a Dutch national, with no military background (the draft was abolished just before I turned 18), I have broad scientific interest and I work in the life sciences industry. I have always had a keen interest in news and backgrounds, and especially geopolitics and warfare. I like to learn new things, dive into subjects, such as geography, historical events or eras, languages. That is why, when the financial crisis of 2008/9 hit, and I found myself a pitiful layman in this subject, I got on the path of really trying to understand the global economy and its intricacies. What shocked me after a while was the level of propaganda in this area, regarding unemployment, inflation, GDP, debt, the stock market among others. This naturally led me into monetary history, Bretton Woods, the US dollar hegemony, the role of gold in the system, institutions like IMF, Central Banks/BIS. This in turn put me on the path of geopolitics, the heartland/Mackinder-Brzezinski theory etc. During this, I got involved in dissecting the MH17 disaster, a national trauma for the Dutch, but an area of particular interest to me for personal reasons. I was again shocked by the level of propaganda. I spent countless on this single subject of MH17. But, by being more and more exposed to 'alternative' media to get a grasp of the reality of things, I started to become sensitive to other truths, not heard in the mainstream media, on all kinds of subjects. This has led me to feel I've taken the red pill, including on occurring false flags & hoax attacks, which I am aware of and which I now dissect meticulously (if I find the time). False flags are my special interest at this moment in time.

I hope to discuss current events in this forum with open minded folks, on another level than in our mainstream media.

See you around!

Swingtop


Welcome, Swingtop. Weirdly, I'm familiar with almost all those crazy things you mentioned (and I share an interest in Bretton-Woods, even its potential for a renegotiation in our time) but I'm not familiar with "the heartland/Mackinder-Brzezinski theory etc."

What is that theory? Can you explain it, and your interest? I am skeptical and wary of all things with "Brzezinski" attached, as I am sure you understand.

Hi there, I'm Howard, 35, from the UK. Teacher.

I know the suggestion was to copy and paste the handshake information, but I daren't as I rambled at length to poor Simon!

Since starting my own 911 journey and coming to September clues (purely by chance) I haven't stopped thinking about it and the related issues. I've bored my friends, embarrassed myself in front of my neighbour, made dinner parties awkward and gained a reputation for being a general bore on the subject! It's stunning! Nobody wants to engage and talk about what we're witnessing.

Anyway, I come to the forum with the benefit of a lot of photography experience, some construction (both academic and real world), a curious mind, having worked in the Middle East and having Arab friends and a desire to learn.

Congrats to members who've made an amazing team contribution to showing that all that we see and hear on TV isn't necessarily particularly representative of what really happened.

Regards

Howard

That's got to be the most British way possible to describe what's going on. Welcome to the forum!!

Cheers, thanks for the welcome. Really excited to be here. I laughed at your comment, especially when I re-read it. I think I was at pains not to 'jump in with both feet', so to speak. I am so deeply into this, I'm basically trying to keep a lid on it, whilst the world rotates around me and goes to work and is pretty satisfied with the quality of news!

Warmest regards

Howard

Hi Simon / other members,

My name is Burger. I am from South Africa and is a self employed cabinetmaker by trade and self-taught engineer of sorts by hobby.

I am always itching to build things and find it impossible to sit still for any length of time. I have in my time built several CNC machines, simple robots, a multitude of electronic gadgets and a few rockets.

My reasons for joining Cluesforum is to join in on discussions particularly the Apollo missions. I have thoroughly enjoyed your lengthy discussion about rocket propulsion in space and have read every page of it.

Regards,
MagicFlame007

Please allow me to introduce myself.

I am a middle-aged American living in the Midwest. I have been following the Cluesforum for a few years now. My areas of professional expertise are comparative religion and linguistics. I don't know that I will have time to contribute much in the way of original research to the forum, but I have a head for noticing anomalies and asking pertinent questions.

My user name, Maarten Rossaart, comes from the gem of a novel by Arthur van Schendel, De Waterman (The Waterman). The protagonist is a non-conformist who has an intuitive sense for the waterways that bring life and death to the people of the nineteenth century Netherlands. Maarten is a non-conformist who rejects the accepted wisdom about many things: dike management, his Calvinist upbringing, and the class-based hierarchy of Dutch society. A beautiful detail of Maarten's characterization is that he refuses to wear a cap, even while working on dikes in the raw weather off the North Sea. His reason? If he doesn't wear a cap, he has nothing to doff to his supposed social superiors when they pass. Bareheaded, he is equally polite—or impolite—to every person, both the high and mighty and the meek and lowly.

My hat's off to all of you at Cluesforum, though!

Hello,
My nationality is not important for me, but in the official world i'm estonian(EU, if someone doesn't know).
I'm a student and also a teacher in a university(engineering, biotechnology). I have studied 'conspiracy theories' for... 10 years. My first glimpse was the Protocols of Zion. Then i started to read a lot of other books and joined the 'conspiracy crowd'. I think i studied every major conspiracy theory and believed them all, some of them for brief 4-5 minutes(flat earth gets that medal). Nowadays i don't believe in anything. All that i can be somewhat certain of is when someone is lying, not speaking the 'truth'(i'm possibly just protecting myself from association of any identity). For example, the latest Nice attack was full of red flags of staged attack. Or for example in wikipedia it is written that 1972 was the last time people left the low earth orbit. Or the official history that there were 12 people on the moon, from 1969 till 1972, with 100% comeback success. It just doesn't compute, especially now, on year 2016. Or nuclear bombs, where we are told that it was used on civilians last time in 1945 and from then there were absolutely no nuclear detonations in any city in our world. Be it even an accident or a 'nuclear terrorism'. And it's 2016 now.
So, the motivation for joining the forums, i think, is probably clear and implied from above. What i can add is that i like the style of posts here. They are much cleaner and thoughtful than other forums or other internet social circles. People are actually thinking what they write.
Oh and about my user name - albatrosv14. I actually like the bird, wandering albatross. It's just about freedom and not having some specific persistive belief. V stands for 'version' and number means, well... version number.
Thank you.
Albatros

Hi all,

As I undrestood, this is the first step to get registered at CluesForum.

Briefly about me:

Gender: Male
Nationality : Slovenian
Occupation: working in IT business and music area
Research experience: my first awakening signs go back to 2001 ,I can't remember exactly, but collapsing 9/11 Twin towers made me say – bullshit :blink: . Ever since I was/am dealing with illogical and contradictory facts, mostly within my own alleged expertise – economics, motivated by the fantasmagoric proportions of 2008 financial crisis. I actively posted my contributions on local forums and still do seldomly. Gradually I realised that more is faked, scripted and edited to fit the chosen. My interests in discovering truth are about science in general, history, psychology and music, all the rest will follow :)

What motivated me to join CF was/is to get an opportunity to exchange ideas and converse about subjects of common interests. Facts and sound arguments, that's what I'm mostly about, being direct and well articulated, I believe I can add to quite some threads on CF. There is really not many people around me that can relate to all that's in my mind, especially regarding above mentioned areas of my interest, so I really look forward to join all of you, fellow truthers.

Cheers,
VexMan 

A rather British-sounding Slovenian. Do you mind telling us why you chose the handle "VexMan"?

Hi Flabbergasted,

Thanks for your welcome

About my nick : partially because it is my real nickname...well, a variation of it and partially because I actually am a man. So VexMan is impersonation of those two :)

Sounding rather British is taken as a compliment for my efforts in regards.

Cheers

Hello Clues Forum,I go by skinnylegsandall out of love of Tom Robbins books particularly the aforementioned book.
I'm sixty-one years old,children are grown.I worked as union worker,apprentice lineman-foremen for 22 years in downtown Miami until Florida Power and Light offered money for our seniority.Took about a half hour to make the decision.Starting about 2005 worked out on the west coast out of local 1245 Riverside Ca.until 2010.Oh I'm a US citizen,attended and graduated from University of Alabama 1975-1980.Had a major heart attack,open heart surgery same day,two years ago now.Married a couple times happily once.I'm a great fan and believer in Clues forum,particularly Simon.I have two people I know personally here,Sunshine and CluedIN.That's comforting.Spelling is hard and numbers get jumbled since the surgery.Around first of 1999 I was introduced to Liberty Forum,for me a wild place first exposure to forums,right about when DSL was introduced at large.
Sometime after 2002 I saw Eric Hufschmid"s Painful Questions.From there I explored lies knew nothing of the fakery.2009 I found Clues Forum,this is where things got clear for me,the amount of fakery was astounding.I know a fair amount about line work and electricity.Climbed thousands of poles,structures throughout my life.I hope I have things of valve to share here.

Welcome Skinnylegs. Ha, your resumé reads like a character from an old Glen Campbell ouch, correction Jimmy Webb song. ;)

Still gives me the shivers.

Gosh, Liberty Forum that takes me back, it's gone now isn't it?

Clarity, it's what we do.

No you didn't.

Clues Forum began in late 2010. Did you mean to write you first saw Simon's September Clues video in 2009? Or possibly our predecessor forum, Reality Shack, which began on October 18, 2009? That seems unlikely, however, since few people knew it existed and our readership thus was likely quite small.

In any case, please understand we value precision and accuracy in posts.
