A Thorn in Their Side
• A candid interview with author Victor Thorn: AFP’s secret weapon against the New World Order.
By Dave Gahary —
Although AMERICAN FREE PRESS has a top-notch staff of writers who bring you the important news conveniently ignored by this country’s mainstream media, perhaps this newspaper’s best kept secret is longtime conspiracy researcher and writer Victor Thorn.
The author of 51 books and chapbooks, Thorn was one of the first in the nation to apply his skills to the granddaddy of all conspiracies, the September 11, 2001 terror attacks. Since his first book in 2003, Thorn has been pumping out book after book, giving his readers and fan base an alternative view of events, past and present, a view many would say explains the real reasons and reveals the responsible parties of some of the most notorious events in world history.
On August 25, this writer caught up with Victor Thorn to discuss his life’s work, how it has affected him and his audience, and his outlook for America.
A subscriber to The Spotlight and this newspaper before beginning to write for this publication, Thorn “had been studying conspiracies for 10 years,” before the 9-11 attacks.
“This is how we started the 21st century. Within nine months of the new century, we had the biggest false-flag terror event ever,” said Thorn. “I felt that this was our chance to wake up the public.”
“The 9-11 attacks were so blatantly obvious,” said Thorn. “This was the lead-up to dragging us into war.”
Thorn was in Washington, D.C. in December, 2002, for an anti-tax rally, and he stopped by AFP’s offices and met the staff. An article Thorn wrote for an Internet magazine in November, 2001, was run in the pages of this newspaper. The following year, Thorn’s first book, the 565-page The New World Order Exposed was published, and it was an instant success.
“It was published in Japan as a double-hardback edition and then as a double-paperback edition,” said Thorn, because demand was so high.
“Of all the big, epic conspiracy books out there,” said Thorn, “it’s one of the top three that gives a wide, sweeping overview of important events, like the Federal Reserve, Pearl Harbor, the JFK assassination and many others.”
An excerpt from page 156 details the flavor of the book:
In this vein, then, the American Revolution did not take place primarily because of taxation without representation (as we’ve been taught), but because the European financiers didn’t want us to be able to create our own money. By eliminating them and the interest paid on their loans, we didn’t allow ourselves to be enslaved by usury and debt. Thus, the American Revolution was actually a battle over who controlled the money!
Famed Welsh author Gordon Thomas, who “lectures widely on the secret world of intelligence” and “provides analysis on intelligence for U.S. and European TV and radio programs,” praised Thorn’s book:
“In the world we live in, Victor Thorn’s writing is a beacon. A bright searchlight on what people want to hide: the truth. I unreservedly commend this book to all those who care with a passion about our future. Beg, borrow or best of all, buy it as one for your shelves.”
Thomas, who has also written more than 50 books, was one of three heavyweight authors to heap praise on the book. The others were New York Times best-selling author Jim Marrs and AFP’s own Michael Collins Piper.
AFP had been selling Thorn’s masterpiece for nearly five years when the paper’s production manager, Paul Angel, asked Victor if he’d like to be a regular contributor to AFP.
“Of course, I said; I was thrilled,” replied Thorn.
Thorn began writing for AFP in 2007, and is hands down the most prolific writer on AFP’s staff, which should come as no surprise to readers of the paper and his books, considering how much he has produced. In fact, in the little more than the four years that passed after Thorn had visited the AFP offices, he kicked out five more substantial volumes.
The book after his first was The New World Order Illusion, book two of Thorn’s New World Order trilogy. This 132-page book delves into who really controls the media, the neoconservatives’ role as front men for the New World Order elite, the unsettling truth about the United States Constitution, and much more.
Thorn’s next book was 9-11 Exposed, a 48-page shocking and informative booklet that attacks the “official” government line on 9-11 from a scientific angle. Thorn shows how jet fuel can’t melt construction-grade steel, the evidence of bombs in the World Trade Center (WTC), the pre-9-11 WTC “power-down,” 9-11 vacancies and absenteeism, the neocon war machine, and more.
Thorn continued his research on the September 11 attacks, and 9-11 on Trial: The World Trade Center Collapse was next. This 175-page book addresses what really caused the collapse of the three buildings of the WTC on September 11 and examines if the establishment account of these events is in any way credible. Thorn puts the federal theory of what happened on trial, with simulated witnesses and questioning.
But Thorn just doesn’t hide behind a keyboard and type; he is active in the patriot movement.
“Undoubtedly the most intense day of my life ever was when we attended the fourth anniversary tribute to 9-11 at the Ground Zero memorial,” said Thorn. “We went there with a 14-foot-long banner that said ‘9-11 WTC Controlled Demolition.’ That day we were probably the most photographed people in America. People were threatening our lives, saying things like ‘We’re going to kill you as soon as you leave here.’ I really believed we were going to be killed. The only reason that didn’t happen was because the police were present.”
“After four hours of holding up the banner, two young men ran through the middle of it with their bicycles and ripped it in half,” recounted Thorn.
Incredibly, many members of the New York Police Department and the New York Fire Department gave Thorn the thumbs-up when they walked past the banner, another revealing fact absent from all mainstream media coverage of this false-flag event.
9-11 on Trial was followed by 9-11 Evil: Israel’s Central Role in the September 11, 2001, Terrorist Attacks, which was released on the fifth anniversary of 9-11, where Thorn’s research allowed him to identify who was responsible for the attack. As the title suggests, evidence showed that the Zionist state was deeply involved in the attacks, and Thorn wasn’t afraid to announce this.
“This was the first book ever that fully exposed Israel’s central role,” said Thorn. “There were articles on the Internet, but this was the first book. Many people were overjoyed that this book was out there, but there were people in the official 9-11 movement who refused to even acknowledge the book’s existence. It was simply ‘too hot’ for them.”
In fact, the organizers of the prominent 9-11 “truth” community told Thorn in no uncertain terms that they wanted nothing to do with his book, although it was fully documented. Why these “truth seekers” would shun a well-cited book that not only added to the evidence that 9-11 was a false-flag, but identified some of the perpetrators is clear: these “truth-seekers” were more scared of Zionist power than they are of the U.S. government.
In spite of the opposition to naming Israel as the main co-conspirator in the 9-11 attacks, the 124-page book was, and still is, amazingly popular.
“I had to organize a makeshift assembly line to keep up with the orders in the first weeks after its introduction,” said Thorn. “It showed that people were desperately hungry for the truth.”
Incredibly, in certain 9-11 truth Internet chat rooms, anyone who attempted to educate people using Thorn’s new book was banished.
“No one was permitted to discuss Israel’s role or they would be booted from the chat room,” said Thorn.
9-11 Evil was followed up by Phantom Flight 93, which decimated the official account of the plane that allegedly crashed in a field in Pennsylvania.
“This was the first book devoted to Shanksville,” said Thorn. “We were there for two days, and they almost literally wanted to run us out of town with pitchforks. We approached the coroner, the local police, state police, the newspaper, the hospital and a number of residents.”
“What we uncovered was that the everyday people were very suspicious of the official story, but the closer we got to the centers of power, the more the official story was reinforced,” a revealing fact indeed.
“We asked the director of the Flight 93 Memorial why there was no wreckage,” said Thorn. “He told us they had to dig 50 feet underground to get at it. Other officials said the plane had vaporized.”
“Both of these accounts are ridiculous, because where in history has a plane entered the ground in accordion-like fashion or vaporized on impact? Nowhere,” said Thorn.
The year 2011 was a productive one for Thorn, when he released both New World Order Assassins, the third book in his NWO trilogy, which “drips with conspiracy theories on every page,” said Thorn, and Made in Israel: 9-11 and the Jewish Plot Against America. Made in Israel more extensively covers Jewish involvement in 9-11, and reinforces the preponderance of evidence of Israeli, Zionist, and Jewish involvement in 9-11. Thorn goes so far as to identify the culprits as “Jewish” after their names.
“Only one nation and group of people benefited most from the attacks on 9-11: Israel and the Zionist Jews,” wrote Thorn. “Every other nation and group suffered.”
Thorn explained to this reporter why he stays on the conspiracy beat.
“Name one false-flag event where the perpetrator has been arrested, convicted and imprisoned?” asked Thorn. “There’s not one.”
“We’ve taken conspiracy to another level,” he explained. “We’ve pinpointed who the real culprits are, not just named ‘the New World Order,’ like most of the ‘truth community.’”
“The people behind the crimes have always used the same formula—muddy the waters with disinformation so people can’t make an informed decision.”
We hope Victor continues writing because people need to hear what he has to say. Just beware: If you take a vacation, when you come back, Victor Thorn might well have written two or three new blockbuster books.
Victor Thorn just doesn’t spend all his time writing about the greatest conspiracies of our time, he has his finger on the political pulse of this nation as well. Possibly Thorn’s greatest political work is his HILLARY (AND BILL) TRILOGY, the most comprehensive examination of the Clinton marriage ever compiled.
Hillary (and Bill): The Sex Volume is part one of the trilogy. In 334 pages, Thorn paints an intimate yet disturbing portrait of this infamous political couple by getting inside their heads, revealing their motives and disclosing their darkest secrets. This ismore than just another book on Hillary Rodham and Bill Clinton.
In part two, Hillary (and Bill): The Drugs Volume, Thorn details in 310 pages the Clinton’s long-standing ties to the notorious Dixie Mafia, and details how billions of dollars of cocaine, cash and weapons passed through Mena, Arkansas during the 1980s, with the full knowledge of Bill and Hillary, to finance the illegal war in Nicaragua. To the detriment of your average American, tons of this coke help fuel the cocaine epidemic of the 1980s.
The final 383-page book in the trilogy, Hillary (and Bill): The Murder Volume, addresses the “Clinton Body Count” do determine if it is real or simply an urban legend. He details an overwhelming body of evidence to prove that the more than 100 people who’ve died under mysterious circumstances—all tied in some way, shape, or form to the Clintons—far surpasses any chance of it merely being coincidence.
Hillary may be the next president of the United States, so brushing up on the real Hillary is a must for all students of politics.
