Corrs guitarist Jim Corr has claimed that there was overwhelming evidence that the 9/11 attacks in America were carried out by "rogue elements" of US President George Bush's "neo-con administration".
In a rare intervention into the political arena, the male singer with The Corrs band also came out against the Lisbon Treaty claiming that it is " tip-toe totalitarianism in the West".
In an interview with Matt Cooper on Ireland's Today FM's 'Last Word', Corr made the case for voting 'No' to Lisbon, claiming it could introduce the death penalty to Ireland and contribute to a "new world order".
Corr's opposition is based on his three years "studying the New World Order which the European Union is a part of".
He said "the EU is a stepping stone towards a world government, they will merge it with the Asia Pacific Union, the African Union and the North American Union". The Lisbon Treaty itself will introduce "a scientific technocracy" to Europe which will erode national sovereignty.
Corr claimed that The Charter of Fundamental Rights allows for the introduction of the death penalty.
"It makes provision for the introduction to law for the death penalty in times of war or imminent threat of war.
"What we are seeing is tip-toe totalitarianism in the West with 9/11 the key to understanding this.
"When you study 9/11 it becomes very apparent... it was a staged terrorist attack, what they call a false flag operation."
Corr said overwhelming evidence suggests 9/11 "was carried out by rogue elements in the Bush neo-con administration".
Top Iranian military commander, Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan, has accused the United States of carrying out the 9/11 terror attacks in order to justify an invasion of the Middle East "with the goal of ruling it".
It's really unsettling to be cornered by some wild-eyed, spittle-spraying weirdo telling you his crazy theory about what supermarkets do with the data from customer loyalty cards. But, in fairness, Jim Corr listened very politely to my rant about store cards.
Each time I lecture abroad on the Middle East, there is always someone in the audience – just one – whom I call the "raver". Apologies here to all the men and women who come to my talks with bright and pertinent questions – often quite humbling ones for me as a journalist – and which show that they understand the Middle East tragedy a lot better than the journalists who report it. But the "raver" is real.
