“It's bad enough that Notre Dame burned on Macron's watch ‘by accident.’ But what if it was terrorism?”

Ezra LevantRebel Commander


Do you know what caused the fire in the Notre Dame Cathedral? Or did you just hear some rumour?

Within hours, even before investigations could even begin, while the fire was still burning, the establishment had their explanation: no terrorism

It was an accident. The New York Times said so:

Glenn Corbett, an associate professor of fire science at John Jay College in New York, said construction work and renovations had long been a dangerous combination.

“There’s a history of churches and synagogues and other houses of worship falling victim to construction fires,” he said, adding that one of the reasons for the peril was the proximity of open flames on torches, sparks from welders and other hazards on scaffolding to other flammable materials.”

The fact that more than 700 churches a year in France are torched or vandalized? That Notre Dame was the target of a foiled ISIS plot? That’s not what’s going on here. Glenn Corbett knows.

But here's a reputable newspaper interviewing one of the construction companies.

“All I can tell you right now is that at the start of the fire, absolutely none of the employees of my company was present on site,” said Julien Le Bras, adding that all employees of his company, Europe Echafaudage, participated in the inquiry “without any reservation”.

Hang on. I thought it was a construction fire. But it wasn’t just one fire, I guess. It was two? 

"The fire started up near the roof top, while another fire started in the north bell tower," Picaud told NBC News.

Here’s a man who was the chief architect at the church for 13 years. In charge of structural integrity; fire detection; who knows every timber and stone in the building:

Now I have no idea what happened. But I don’t think that you do either. And I would normally not be a skeptic about something like this, other than how freighted it is with politics. It’s the symbol of Christendom. In France, a city besieged by Islamic terror, that has specifically be targeted before by terror. And maybe that construction boss is lying; or maybe he didn’t know his men were there, or maybe it was someone else. Welding at night. In two different places. Who managed to get mighty oaks blazing without anyone noticing. Without the two, on-location fire wardens seeing it.

It’s bad enough that France’s greatest treasure burned on Macrons watch by “accident." But if it were a terrorist, and if that terrorist were known to authorities, are being "watched" by them — as most terrorists in Europe seem to be -- that would finish Macron, wouldn’t it?

It would question immigration and policing in France in general. Macron would do anything to avoid that. Anything in the world. Don’t you think?

Maybe there will be a convincing report — one written after all the facts are in, not before. One that clears up what facts I’ve mentioned above were rumours and gossip, and outright lies, and what are true.

I hope it was just an “accidental fire.” Not that any fire there was acceptable. The fire was a horror and a tragedy and a loss.

But if Macron has covered up its true nature, that is far worse for us. Because it proves what every conspiracy theorist thinks — that you cannot trust your own government; that it is your enemy, and you must doubt everything they say.

That is not healthy. We need a few good journalists to ask a few good questions. Trouble is, they’ve all been chasing imaginary Russians around the world these past two years. While France burns...

Ron Joseph… Interesting point about those spruce beams… Western spruce is not that much different from Baltic Sea Balsam Pine which was the favourite material for masts for Napoleon’s navy… They both tend to “check” very heavily unless first smeared in linseed oil… But, they do indeed retain their strength in spite of severe checking… White oak, as opposed to red oak, “stabilizes” once it gets down to under 7 per cent moisture content and from there on is inherently “stable” for the rest of its life… As I said before, the linseed oil is applied to simply minimize surface checking… Beeswax is applied to simply restore the “surface shine” if that is one’s desire over the years…

Andrew Stephenson… Unless you know something about traditional European wood treatment methods, that my late father didn’t, I would advise you to butt out while you still can… My father was a well respected member of the Latvian “traditional crafts” guild and knew more about traditional and medieval wood finishes than most people… Or are you just sticking your nose in again to stir the pot, as usual??

These conspiracy theories are getting zanier and zanier.

Perhaps your yellow-vester friends did it. They seem pretty upset that people want to rebuild it.

Andy Neimers….Years ago I was checking out the sub-floor of a older house in Salmon Arm. We went to the basement and to our surprise there were 14 spruce beams holding up the main floor; they were the size of telephone poles. With that structure the house will still be standing for 100 more years. I did notice each beam had 2 inch cracks from drying, still they could hold up 4 times the weight that they were holding.
My oak furniture would dry out without oil or varnish. Are oak beams that different than spruce. The attached photo shows some untreated wood.

Re what the oak roof beams at Notre Dame were treated with… It’s more than likely that it was just linseed oil and nothing more, just like the white oak beams of the St. Peter’s Church spire in Riga, Latvia, which was the highest wooden spire of any church in Europe before the Russians deliberately torched it during World War II… And the beams were not repeatedly “saturated” in linseed oil… The oil was simply applied at the onset to slow down surface “checking” while the wood dried over the decades… Once dry, white oak does not need any further treatment and is stable for the rest of its life, just taking on a “greenish” patina from the tannins in the wood…

Keith Barnes, thanks for reminding us of what real war is like. I really won’t try out your phosphorous any time soon. You gave away your age by the way………..

Yes Ron I did……Come July I will hit the big 80. Guess this makes me the oldest Rebel at least. Not the wisest though. Just praying that I hang on long enough to see Trudeau get the boot. Perhaps if I quit smoking I might. lol.
As for the phosphorous, you are talking about the White variety that was used in German Incendiary Bombs but it can be refined more and turned into a powder that is quit save to touch and handle as long as it is damp but highly dangerous when dry. If triggered it creates tremendous heat and it too will burn anything, with no flash.
commented 2019-04-28 10:21:51 -0400
Keith Barnes……I just saw some video’s on phosphorous and it gives off a bright flash that the two Fire Marshals on duty at Notre Dame could not have missed; in fact thousands of people in Paris would have seen the flashes of the two fires.

I’m hoping Marine Le Pen, takes over from Macron and the truth will come out. The EU Elections in a month should tell us where France is heading.

Actually I was questioning Ezra and his expert on their claim that old oak is almost impossible to start on fire. Maybe so, but the cleaning oil ,wax, shellac or varnish will start on fire quite easily. I would conservatively guess that there were 100 coats of the above on that 800 year old oak. I am only giving my opinion, then again maybe your theory regarding phosphorous is the answer. Then I used the S. S. Noronic as a witnessed example.

People from Toronto have no doubt heard of the Passenger Ship S.S. Noronic (Queen of the Lakes) that burned in 1949 while docked in Toronto Harbor. Although it killed 139 people, there are witnesses that saw the small linen closet fire EXPLODE along the old oak hand rails and the fancy wood paneling. The ships crew always used lemon oil to clean and refurbish all the old wood on the ship, which made it a fire hazard.

I am as suspicious as anyone that Macron is hiding facts about the Notre Dame fire, however I can explain how hard 800 year old oak can catch fire………………………….. Phosphorous Ron, it is capable of setting your blood on fire if it splashes on you. It will spread through your blood quickly and you will look like a Roman Candle. If it lands on steel it will melt it. I have seen this as a Kid during WW2 bombing raids.

Liza….Maybe Ezra will send us to Paris to investigate the beams.

With regards to the fire, I am curious as to why Climate Barbie & Trudeau have not yet blamed the burn on climate change, as it seems more often than not to be their go-to explanation. Strangely silent on this one.
commented 2019-04-27 13:58:20 -0400
When the expert was talking about the old hard oak beams being difficult to ignite( which is mentioned in the full clip on youtube) I would have thought he might have mentioned any existing varnish or oils in preserving the wood at the same time that he mentioned that he thought an accelerant had to of been used.
In any event that doesn’t change many other facts, such as two different ignition locations being identified.
Has anyone heard any ‘official’ explanation for the robed person(s) visible in video footage?
commented 2019-04-27 13:40:17 -0400
I accept that it is definitely a possibility Ron.

Liza suggests, being oak, and completely out of the elements including sunlight, do you think that they really would have needed to oil or stained the beams? I’m not saying they couldn’t have but do we know for sure?
-——————————————————————————————————-

Sunlight and heat speeds up the drying of wood, however simple air will definitely dry out unprotected wood. Once dried out, oak will crack, rot or may end up warped.
Surprisingly, roof rafters are even more susceptible because since heat rises the rafters get very warm on a hot summer day. I put a thermometer in my attic and it got to 60 c on a summer afternoon. Why doesn’t the wood crack in my attic; because the sawmill cured the wood.(took out the moisture) In France 800 years ago, they didn’t know about that process, so they either oiled the beams or protected it with varnish.
One interesting fact that we don’t have to know is that the oil we put on wood gets absorbed into the wood, not just the outside.

This article just tells some facts about old wood.

As more and more Globalist conspiratory evil is exposed to the light of day – and a BIG Thank You goes out to THEREBEL for that – we move closer and closer to revolution…which has been the historic counterpart to man’s willingness to be enslaved.
Round and round we go…and the lawyers and bankers always win! (AKA, the 5 P Professionals, today).

Major reform is an absolute must if the absolutely-corrupted-West is to even survive…
1st – identify the problem.
2nd – remove the problem.
We all know THE LEFT and their lefty indoctrination is the problem!
So just get ‘er done – or ’they’ are going to continue to do you!

On a construction site a modern one, renovating an old site of very historic importance
great care would be taken with re guard to fire. Here is what I know about such a site in Calgary.
All sites are nonsmoking.
A meeting every morning with the safety officer.
Any flammable material is examined a sheet is filled out stating both storage and disposal of material is noted before it is allowed on site.
Called a muster point a wind sock is set up to detect the direction (seen on every site)
of the wind and a place for everyone to meet in an emergency to do a head count.

Electricians do not just hook up to the old (knob and tube) wiring for power.
The up-grade of the service (electrical power lines) would require the power be off to rewire to modern standard.
A generator would be set up complete with its own fuse system and temporary service installed.
Double fused for safety both at the generator and a fuse panel similar to the one in your home.
Fuel is brought to site by a fuel truck and never stored on site. The generator locked off at end of the shift and site locked.
Someone is on site 24-7 to maintain security and a fire watch.
Old material removed outside immediately to a steel dump bin located away from the structure.
Fire suppression equipment is everywhere on site.
As an uneducated tradesman it makes me so mad the trades would be blamed.
We all take great pride in our work and consider it an honor to work on such sites.

Ezra, your suspicions regarding the fire and how quickly Notre Dame went up in flames is rightly placed. With todays modern housing materials using so much plastics, you have a fraction of the time needed to exit before the fire will reach flashover compared to the natural materials of yesteryear.

If the powers that be told the people of France it was set ablaze by Muslims all hell would break out. All of the EU is desperate to save the EU. and something like this could tear it apart.

Stephen, that is exactly what the EU needs, especially the UK. Tear it apart and punish the press, politicians and the crooked police.
Then go to the jails full of Muslims and deport them.

This is not new….the destruction of Sodom and Gommorah “by a hail of fire and brimstone” (sulphur from the brim of a volcano) and the destruction of “atlantis” (the city state located on the island of Hydra the cone of a previously dormant volcano)….were the same event…..it was so unprecedented that offending the gods was assumed to be the cause.

Ezra and the retired contractor are correct in saying that it would take a lot of kindling wood to start old hard oak. The flammable part is years of old varnish and protectant that is on the wood. It is also quite popular to refurbish dry wood by using oils such lemon oil, which can make the wood quite flammable.

People from Toronto have no doubt heard of the Passenger Ship S.S. Noronic (Queen of the Lakes) that burned in 1949 while docked in Toronto Harbor. Although it killed 139 people, there are witnesses that saw the small linen closet fire EXPLODE along the old oak hand rails and the fancy wood paneling.
