Does David Farrar’s ‘Kiwiblog’ Give Kiwis A Bad Name?

By Clare Swinney
10th April 2007

David Farrar’s Kiwiblog at can be described by a number of apt phrases, but a useful source for accurate, unbiased information in regard to 9/11 is certainly not one of them.

In a blundering and crude attempt to shield the public from the facts surrounding government-sponsored terror, DPF, as he refers to himself, dollops out lies by the dessertspoon-full, like a trainee chef at a children’s camp, trying to thicken a troublesome sauce.

The following is a classic example of Farrar’s style and was posted under the title: ‘The Titanic Conspiracy Theory,’ on the 6th of April 2007:

“Most people will be aware of the moonbat conspiracy theory that 9/11 was actually orchestrated by the US government, and there is some lunatic video promoting that theory. Well in the same vein, have a look at this video which casts doubt on the sinking of the Titanic. Hilarious.”

This puerile content, essentially comprised of techniques one would expect to find in a beginners’ guide to disinformation from a CIA handbook for the paid-off media, lacks appropriate analyses of important issues and fails to provide links to factual information. The childish term “moonbat” is used as a tag on the site to access associated articles, so too “conspiracy theories,” as if he thinks his readers have IQs lower than primordial algae.

It is ironic, given that the blog is on the Internet, where visitors can readily access a plethora of evidence to contradict Farrar’s fraudulent claims, that he attempts to kid readers into believing that the primary source of evidence for the 9/11 Truth Movement is to be found in the documentary, ‘Loose Change,’ which, according to him, we’ve watched too often.

He is kidding himself. There are so many whistleblowers and so much hard scientific evidence that’s freely available to demonstrate that 9/11 was the work of criminal elements in the US government, that Farrar is as conspicuous as a streaker at a rugby game as a propagandist –nothing more, nothing less. And like others churning out this evil form of fiction, he is complicit in the governments’ crimes, whether he would care to acknowledge it or not.

Typical of sites that hawk propaganda, Kiwiblog attempts to discredit those who convey the truth. For instance, the following work of fiction was posted in June 2006. I did not make the statements that this claims. It is rubbish:

“According to the NZ investigative journalist Clare Swinney, the twin towers were destroyed by Dubbya’s brother, whom she says planted “controlled demolition explosives.” The pictures of jets crashing into the buildings were digital fakes.
Clare also says the moon landings were faked.
> And in fact CIA agents on board the real Flight 77 shot everyone on board
> and took the plane to Roswell.
I’m sure I read her say that too, sans the Roswell bit.
The sad thing is that millions of people seem to believe this shit. The truth is too simple for them.”

Also, beneath a letter penned by me that Farrar has posted at “Letters to the Editor” in which I complain that someone has misquoted me, a poster, ‘Dave,’ wrote that the idea 9/11 was an inside job was the “kookiest theory of the age..” and that Ian Wishart had stopped publishing my articles owing to my kooky ideas.
This was not true, so I submitted the following on the 7th of April
in my defense, although it has been withheld by Farrar from the public’s view:

“Dear Mr Farrar,
…In regards to Dave’s comments, you are incorrect on all fronts, except where you point out that I have brains and acumen. The official ‘man-in-the-cave’ story is the kookiest conspiracy theory of this age, not the belief that 9/11 was an inside job. Hundreds of false flag operations, which is what 9/11 was, have been conducted throughout modern history and some have been admitted to, including:
1933: The burning of the Reichstag by the Nazis;
1953: The CIA coup in Iran, which you can read about on the CIA website;
1964: The Gulf of Tonkin Pretext;

victims have gone public questioning the official story of 9/111967: USS Liberty Attacked;
And 1946-83 NATO’s stay-behind armies –Operation Gladio.
“Even US Vice President Dick Cheney stated “we’ve never made the case, or argued that somehow Osama Ben Laden [sic] was directly involved in 911,” in interview in March 2006 with Tony Snow, which is posted on White House website. Refer:
“Furthermore, if believing that 9/11 is an inside job is confined to a minority of weirdoes, as you imply, why is it that major scientific polls show that the large MAJORITY in the US reject the official story? For example, 84% said they rejected it, while only 16% said they believed the official fable, according to the New York Times/CBS News poll conducted in October 2006.
And why is it that so many senior military, intelligence service, law enforcement, government officials and family members of victims have gone public, saying they don’t believe the official story?
Also, your statement regarding my contributions to Investigate Magazine is fallacious. I stopped writing for Investigate in mid-2005 for a number of reasons, including political ones. It was not the case, as you mistakenly imply, that Mr Wishart stopped publishing my articles because of my open discussions of false flag operations. Rather, he advised me in writing on the 10th September 2005, that he hoped I would again contribute.
If you have only confined your research to absorbing propaganda from the box and worshipping the ‘man-in-a-cave’ story, I suggest you watch ‘Terrorstorm’ at Google Video and the clip on the Internet where BBC reporter, Jane Standley, says WTC Building 7 fell 20-plus minutes before it actually did. You can see it standing in the background while she is talking. This is evidence of foreknowledge and scripting –and on a par with a TV station reporting that Reagan was shot 20 minutes before he actually was.
And if you are interested in why 9/11 was staged, the New World Order and what the future holds, the free e-book, ‘The Police State Road Map,’ at by Michael Nield (2005) is worthwhile reading. The statements in it from former chief economist of the World Bank and Nobel prize winner, Joseph Stiglitz regarding how the World Bank/IMF has been surreptitiously controlling governments’ policies are alarming and illuminating.
Love and hugs,
Clare Swinney”

By midday of the 10th of April, 3 days after I had sent the above post, Dave’s defamatory post was no longer present on Kiwiblog, – however, neither was this new submission. Thus, it is evident, that while Farrar will host posts comprised of fictional statements that denigrate and belittle someone who conveys the truth about 9/11, he will not play fair by allowing that person to air the facts in defense of their reputation.

It is not surprising then that he protects himself from responsibility by stating “if anything is posted which is defamatory, in contempt of court, or infringes copyright, I may be unaware of it. Hence I have “reducued [sic] liability under the law, until such time as I am made aware of it. So lawyers stay away.”

Readers should stay away, too.

On the 12th September 2005, Farrar had the audacity to write:
“We remember all the 2,973 people killed that day in the attacks.” If you are remembering them Mr Farrar, why are you not respecting their memory and exposing the truth?

It is for all the reaons above, I contend that Kiwiblog gives Kiwis a bad name.

Bill Doyle, who founded the largest group of family members of victims, the Bill Doyle 9/11 Support Group – comprised of more than 7,000 members of 2,573 families – said he does not believe the government’s story. It is now high time for David Farrar to come clean and do so also.
