Here we go again...
Seeing that the Ace Baker personage is being discussed again on various websites - along with "his" ultra-slick, special-effects-ridden movie "The Great American Psyopera", I would like to put forth a historical overview / chronology of Ace Baker's antics - ever since he contacted yours truly - out of the blue - in July 2007. Should I ignore this clown altogether? Perhaps. Perhaps not. I'm in two minds about even giving him the attention that he obviously was meant to attract. Anyways, here goes. Please note that, in this chronology which I have compiled with utmost patience, I am only stating verifiable FACTS.
CHRONOLOGY OF ACE BAKER'S ANTICS - SINCE HIS APPEARANCE IN JULY 2007
- July 2007:
About a month after I released my September Clues movie (for free-viewing online) V.1.0 in June 2007, Ace Baker contacted me saying that he'd been invited by Jim Fetzer at a 9/11 truth conference in Madison - asking for my consensus for him to present my September Clues documentary there. I was, of course, more than happy with that and wished him all the best. Go, Ace, go ! - I happily told him.
I had never heard of Ace Baker before - in any way or form - but at the time I was just eager to let anyone diffuse my SC research, come what may, especially by someone in the USA. (September Clues, let this be clear, is a movie I made entirely on my own, with no outside help whatsoever and on a ZERO budget - in my home audio/video studio in Italy where I live). However green and naive I was at the time, I DID look up Ace Baker's website, just to see if the guy was, well, legit: I was a bit disappointed to find a newly created, virtually empty website - but thought of it no more. Ace Baker had told me he was a musician (like me) and a video editor (like me). At no point did he mention having made any 9/11 research of his own. Again, I didn't think of it much - and I put down to sheer coincidence that we both shared the same jobs - and professional expertise.
- August 30, 2007:
A video is posted on Youtube with Ace Baker presenting my September Clues at said Madison conference. Among the speakers there were Morgan Reynolds, Judy Wood, Dave Von Kleist (of "in Plane Sight" fame), Rosalee Grable ("the Webfairy") and, of course, the conference organizer, Jim Fetzer. I was rather disappointed of the 'amateurish feel' of the whole thing, what with the meager attendance and kooky-looking individuals discussing the all-important 9/11 truth!... But again, I thought of it no more. I was happy that my September Clues had been screened publicly on the other side of the Atlantic - for the first time!
- Sometime in 2008:
Time went by - and I never heard from Ace Baker anymore. That is, until sometime in 2008 when I finally decided to call him on Skype. He answered : "Hi Simon! Sorry, am busy right now - but I'll call you back."
He soon called me back, and we talked for a while. He was adamant that the 9/11 "airliners" had been inserted over REAL images of Manhattan. At the time, I was already working on my September Clues ADDENDUM (which clearly demonstrates that the entire 9/11 Manhattan sceneries in the official TV broadcasts were just as phony as the planes). Ace disagreed. Again, I didn't make much of it, assuming that he hadn't spent much time pursuing the 9/11 imagery research.
- Nov 4, 2008:
Ace Baker now has a brand new (Italian?) blogspot - acebaker.blogspot.it
- where he states that the towers were destroyed by NUCLEAR WEAPONS. Quote: "They are trying to destroy the credibility of the 9/11 tower videos, which in fact show them being disintegrated by nuclear weapons"
Yes - Ace Baker was probably the first clown to mention that "the towers were nuked".
- Nov 5, 2008:
Ace Baker releases a short video on Youtube, titled "Simon Says". In this video, he uses segments of my voice, edited out of our previous, private Skype convo (which he had surreptitiously recorded - after returning my Skype call
) to make fun of / deride my findings concerning the fake Manhattan sceneries. (Woah, nice of him - huh? How would YOU feel about that?)
- Nov 15, 2008:
Ace Baker writes a post on the Pilots for Truth Forum stating that "SEPTEMBER CLUES IS 90%-95% FALSE".
- Jan 6, 2009:
Ace Baker dramatically fakes his suicide
LIVE on the Jim Fetzer "Real Deal" radio show. (look it up on Youtube - you'll love it!)
- Mid 2011:
Ace Baker announces (on his now inexplicably defunct psy-opera.com website) his new mega movie, "THE GREAT AMERICAN PSYOPERA". In its credits of "featured contributors in order of appearance" he lists the following names ( I managed to capture this silly name list before the website went down): Julian Robertson(as Ace Baker), Osama Bin Laden, Garrick Utley, George W. Bush, Zdenek Bazant, Ph.D, Van Romero, J. McMichael, Larry Silverstein, Tom Kenny, Donald Rumsfeld, Rudy Giuliani, Jim Hoffman, Norman Mineta, Jim Fetzer, Ph.D, Dick Cheney, Bob Bowman, Ph.D, George H.W. Bush, David Ray Griffin, Ph.D, Morgan Reynolds, Ph.D, Judy Wood, Ph.D., Frank Greening, Ph.D., Jim Meigs, Ace Baker, Brent Blanchard, Steven Jones, Ph.D., Rosalee Grabel(aka Webfairy), Nico Haupt(aka ewing2001), Killtown, Gerard Holmgren, Genghis 6199, Dave Von Kleist, William Rodriquez, Felipe David, Mathew Tartaglia, Jerry Leaphart, Sir Isaac Newton, Voicu Popescu, Ph.D, Mete Sozen, Ph.D., Nathan Moulton, John Lear, Gelatin, Ron Wieck, Steve Wright, Peter Jennings, Jim Ryan, Kai Simonsen, Jules and Gedeon Naudet, Michael Hezarkhani, Evan Fairbanks, David Handschuh, Orson Welles, Phillip Hayton, Jane Standley, Diane Sawyer, Lyn Brown, Bryant Gumbel, David Long, Charles Gibson, Don Dahler, John Hutchison, Fred Astaire, Wolf Blitzer, Jessica Yellin, Mark Cuban, Charlie Sheen, Fred B.S. Registration, Simon Shack (aka Social Service).
Yes, I your humble servant - Simon Shack - was actually included at the very end of Ace Baker's list of "contributors in order of appearance" of his "GREAT AMERICAN PSYOPERA"... I can't say that I was much flattered to be part of this atrocious list of "contributors"- but I guess this "Ace Baker" needed to mention my name at some stage - lest someone would start to wonder... and accuse him of 'plagiarism'. (Aww - Gawd forbid! Oh well, it's not about plagiarism, as we now know - it's something else.)
- Nov12, 2013:
Ace Baker gets interviewed by John Friend of the Realist Report radio. Ace Baker claims that the absurd color tones of the NY skylines in the LIVE broadcasts can be explained by "camera angles and smog"
, that the "amateur videos" were actually REAL videos with planes inserted, that the "jumpers" imagery was probably authentic - and that the tower collapses "COULD NOT POSSIBLY HAVE BEEN MADE BACK THEN - WITH THE AVAILABLE 2001 TECHNOLOGY".
(Ace has apparently never watched a pre-2001 Hollywood action movie...)
To make a long story short: this half-baked "no-planer" movie (aptly named "Ace Baker's PSYOPERA") is among the most refined and sophisticated damage-control (aka 'cointelpro') operations of our times. Today, any newbie to the notion of TV FAKERY will likely be sucked in by the slick, professional-looking ACE BAKER PSYOPERA - a blatant, in-your-face gatekeeping operation if there ever was one. Its Hollywood production standards (what with its high-end special effects - and ALL of its TV clips being of unseen-before high resolution - unavailable to ANY independent researcher like myself) suggest that Ace Baker did NOT make this PSYOPERA all by himself. (Ironically, my September Clues has been criticized as either "too amateurish to be credible"
or "too professional to be the work of one man"
The bottom line being: ACE BAKER'S PSYOPERA is a big-budget operation (fallen flat) purposely made to 'hijack' the TV FAKERY research - and to ultimately downgrade it to a joke, associating it all with the laughable and off-putting Ace Baker character's nerdy 'hippy face'.
However, I trust that it should now be clear to anyone who has processed the above, factual information - that enormous efforts have been deployed to discredit and downplay the evidence presented in September Clues. Call me pretentious - call me what you will - but I will continue to defend my own efforts and expose the many clowns trying to suppress it. If you think the evidence for total image fakery on 9/11 is weak, please peruse the info at Cluesforum.info (frequented by few, yet truly independent minds from all over the world). Spend a week or two perusing our now collective, half-decade-long research - and make your own mind up. The information is all up here - free of charge.
may reason prevail
ps: The good news is that Ace Baker's PSYOPERA hasn't caught on - and has a dismal number of views and following as of today. I should probably ignore it altogether - as mentioned in this article's intro. Sadly though, a few serious 9/11 researchers are under the spell of Ace Baker's charm and eloquent banter. A clever wolf will always dress in sheep's clothing.
