What is safe, certain and correct to say re events of 9/11 The crashing of a Boeing passenger jet was not responsible for collapse nor full-scale demolition of any building in the world on or about September 11th 2001. It does not matter what, if anything, struck a lateral blow to either of the twin towers. That is not and could not have been the cause for their freefall into their own footprints on that or any other day. World Trade Center Seven was not hit by anything. Tiny fires of questionable provenance in a few isolated areas of that building--which had been brought under control well before 5pm collapse--had nothing to do with the classic controlled demolition implosion, where explosives had clearly been staged with intricate care at many strategic points in the building at least weeks before 9/11. It does not matter what, if any, airborne vessel struck the Pentagon. The blindingly obvious military stand down (or worse) on the most heavily fortified building on this planet could not have been anything but intentional and very premeditated indeed. Is a smallish military drone a plane? Were they actual, regular, ordinarily equipped passenger jets flown off officially specified course that made lateral contact with two epic high-rise towers (WTC 1 and 2) and a lumbering monstrous bunker of a mid rise (the Pentagon)? It does not matter. I think it is a waste of time speculating on the exact nature of possible exotic and unfamiliar-to-the-public technologies that might or might not have played some kind of minor role in the surface appearance of the public spectacle. And I think it is a ridiculous waste of time complaining about people who conjecture on facts not particularly clearly in evidence (the hologrammists, space wavers, "no-planers" etc). We don't need to know exactly how the deed was done. It does not matter exactly what mechanical means were used. The deed was an attack on the United States by covert criminal elements within the US governing elite supported by its client media with clear intent to provoke a whole new paradigm of permanent, global, imperial war ... ... and THAT IS ALL THAT MATTERS; period. --GlenOwen--

Move Over Rush Limbaugh Kevin Barrett A Conservative Talk Show Host? Kevin Barrett, that “radcal libral” inundated with angry emails from illiterate conservatives, has made an odd career choice. He is trying his luck as a conservative talk show host. Barrett has already been hired by two conservative Christian radio networks, Genesis Communications Network and Republic Broadcasting Network. In his first show on RBN, Barrett slammed author and cybercolumnist John Kaminski for his anti-Semitic statements, while his second featured an interview with Dr. Eric Larsen, author of A Nation Gone Blind. His third show included a stunning interview with 9/11 hero and truth-teller William Rodriguez (see below). Barrett’s inaugural shows on GCN’s “The Dynamic Duo with Jim Fetzer and Kevin Barrett” will offer interviews with Brother Raymond of Beit Shalom Ministries (11/20/06) who will soon begin a walk for peace and 9/11 truth from Denver to Washington, D.C.; and Les Jamieson of NY911truth.org (11/24/06). What is Barrett, a “radcal libral Muslim truth jihadi” doing with a show called Truth Jihad Radio on a conservative Christian radio network? And why is he using the music of John Lennon, that liberal icon who sang “imagine no religion” as the show’s theme music? “Being a conservative means wanting to conserve the highest ideals of our forebears, wanting to conserve what’s good from the past,” Barrett explained. “Real conservatives want to conserve authentic religious traditions. They want to conserve our liberties, and the notion of limited government, as set forth in the US Constitution. They want to conserve our beautiful planet from the ‘creative destruction’ of ever-escalating warfare, cancerous pseudo-growth, and IMF globalist tyranny. The so-called neoconservatives, who preach the Orwellian doctrines of Leo Straus—big government through big lies and endless war—are not conservatives at all, but radical Trotskyites who have adopted ‘conservatism’ to disguise their evil, un-American philosophy and their tyrannical, genocidal actions. We need to annihilate the neocons by any means necessary—and since most ‘liberals’ are brainwashed wimps who think big government is their friend, it is real conservatives are going to lead the charge.” But John Lennon? “Malcolm X is my main American hero,” Barrett explained, “but Lennon isn’t far behind. Sure, he didn’t like or even understand religion. But he was a brave, creative truth-teller who stood up against the genocidal Vietnam war, and he was persecuted and killed for telling the truth. His anthem ‘Give Me Some Truth’ should not only be the theme song of the 9/11 truth movement, it should be America’s national anthem. And, God willing, it will be, after the 9/11 truth revolution.” With ideas like these, Barrett may not become the next Rush Limbaugh. But he could become one of the most interesting, iconoclastic voices in American talk radio. * * * Truth Jihad Radio’s debut William Rodriguez Interview 11/18/06 Barrett’s new RBN show Truth Jihad Radio features an interview with 9/11 hero William Rodriguez (the show is archived athttp://www.rbnlive.com/archiveindex.html). Rodriguez, the WTC janitor who singlehandledly rescued fifteen people, including those injured by the massive bomb that exploded in the North Tower sub-basement before the plane hit, and who indirectly saved hundreds more by opening exit doors to the stairwell with the only available key, is THE greatest 9/11 hero in the world media as well as America’s Hispanic and cyber media. But after braving implied death threats and persisting in telling the truth about the bombs that brought down the WTC—including the many explosions he personally witnessed, which began before the plane hit—Rodriguez has been abandoned by the US government and blacked out of the corporate monopoly media. (The contention by Rodriguez and dozens of other witnesses that the bombs began exploding before the plane hit has been confirmed by seismographic evidence: See “Seismic Proof: 9/11 Was an Inside Job” at the Scholars for 9/11 Truth website.) William Rodriguez’s story is not just compelling, it us utterly amazing. Had he not shown up for work late on 9/11, he and the hundreds of people he saved would be dead, because he would have been at the top of the North Tower, instead of in the basement, when the attack began. That such a handsome, articulate, courageous janitor happened to be in the right place at the right time, with the only available master key that allowed hundreds to escape certain death, is either a stunning coincidence or proof of God’s existence. Since 9/11, William Rodriguez has become the most prominent full-time advocate for the victims of 9/11—not just those who lost their lives on 9/11, but the tens of thousands who have been sickened or killed by the toxic WTC dust that the government told us was perfectly safe to breathe. Please support his ongoing heroism and check out his excellent video, available from his website, http://www.911keymaster.com

THE HIGHJACKING OF A NATION

Part 1: The Foreign Agent Factor
By Sibel Edmonds

In his farewell address in 1796, George Washington warned that America must be constantly awake against “the insidious wiles of foreign influence…since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government.”

Today, foreign influence, that most baneful foe of our republican government, has its tentacles entrenched in almost all major decision making and policy producing bodies of the U.S. government machine. It does so not secretly, since its self-serving activities are advocated and legitimized by highly positioned parties that reap the benefits that come in the form of financial gain and positions of power.

Foreign governments and foreign-owned private interests have long sought to influence U.S. public policy. Several have accomplished this goal; those who are able and willing to pay what it takes. Those who buy themselves a few strategic middlemen, commonly known as pimps, while in DC circles referred to as foreign registered agents and lobbyists, who facilitate and bring about desired transactions. These successful foreign entities have mastered the art of ‘covering all the bases’ when it comes to buying influence in Washington DC. They have the required recipe down pat: get yourself a few ‘Dime a Dozen Generals,’ bid high in the ‘former statesmen lobby auction’, and put in your pocket one or two ‘ex-congressmen turned lobbyists’ who know the ropes when it comes to pocketing a few dozen who still serve.

The most important facet of this influence to consider is what happens when the active and powerful foreign entities’ objectives are in direct conflict with our nation’s objectives and its interests and security; and when this is the case, who pays the ultimate price and how. There is no need for assumptions of hypothetical situations to answer these questions, since throughout recent history we have repeatedly faced the dire consequences of the hijacking of our foreign and domestic policies by these so-called foreign agents of foreign influence.

Let’s illustrate this with the most important recent case, the catastrophe endured by our people; the September Eleven terrorist attacks. Let’s observe how certain foreign interests, combined with their U.S. agents and benefactors, overrode the interests and security of the entire nation; how thousands of victims and their loved ones were kicked aside to serve the interests of a few; foreign influence and its agents.

Enforcers or Enablers: Will Democrats Become Part of the Problem?

Former Assistant Secretary of Treasury under Reagan, Paul Craig Roberts is a 9/11 Truther who sometimes tones down his views on 9/11 to get published in larger publications. But his analysis of the need for the Democratic congress to investigate 9/11 and to take other actions to save America from fascism is well worth reading.

"It only took six years for Americans to comprehend George Bush and the Republican Party and to realize that the Republicans were not leading America in any promising directions.

Exit polls and interviews with voters across the country by CNN political analyst Bill Schneider show that the November 2006 election was a vote against both Bush and the war in Iraq. Schneider reports that voters did not even know the name of the Democrats for whom they voted. Voters said: "I am going to vote Democrat, because I don't like Bush, I don't like the war. I want to make a statement."

I believe that voters recognized that the peril of one-party rule is that political accountability exists no where except at the ballot box. With the Republican built and programmed electronic voting machines, even accountability at the ballot box was disappearing.

Americans realized that they had made a serious mistake giving power to one party, and they rectified it.

With Republican control of the legislative branch ended, Pentagon Secretary Donald Rumsfeld was immediately swept from power. With the troops, generals, and the service newspapers calling for Rumsfeld's head, only the delusional warmonger, Vice President Richard Cheney, wanted to keep Rumsfeld in power.

It was a battle that Cheney lost. Cheney's defeat is an indication that reality has elbowed its way back into Republican consciousness, pushing hubris and delusion away from the control they have exercised over political power.

The lust for unbridled power proved to be too strong a temptation for normally cautious Republicans. The Republicans waved the flag and shouted "terrorist sympathizer" at every civil libertarian who attempted to defend the US Constitution, the separation of powers, the Bill of Rights, the Geneva Conventions' proscriptions against torture, and America's reputation from a nazified US Dept of Justice (sic) and a president who behaved--with the approval of Republicans--as if he were above the law. In violation of his oath of office, Bush used signing statements to negate laws passed by Congress, not with a veto, but with his personal opinion. Bush, thus, elevated himself above the rule of law that has protected America from becoming a tyranny and made a mockery of the separation of powers that are a foundation of American liberty.

Americans may not have understood this as clearly as the Founding Fathers did, but the people recognized, however dimly, a problem and exercised corrective action. The question now is: what will the Democrats do?

The Democrats clearly have no mandate for their pet issues of gun control, homosexual marriage, and higher taxes--especially at a time when the average American is deeper in personal debt than at any other time in history and jobs are being offshored at a rapid rate destroying the economic prospects of the American people.

After the years of illegal war and the overnight destruction of civil liberties that were 800 years in their creation, the United States stands at a watershed. If the legislation that has been put on the books permitting spying on Americans without a court warrant, legalizing torture and self-incrimination, and repealing habeas corpus and the right to an attorney remains on the books, the United States will be a police state regardless of which party is in power.

If the Democrats are to make a real difference, their first task is to repeal the Orwellian-named "Patriot Acts," the torture legislation, the detention without court evidence legislation, and the right-to-spy and invade privacy without court warrant legislation. The White House tyrant needs to be quickly told that one more "signing statement" and he will be impeached, convicted, and turned over to the War Crimes Tribunal at the Hague.

The notion that Americans can be protected from "terror" by giving up the Bill of Rights is absurd. Democrats are complicit in this absurd notion. Many were intimidated into voting for police state legislation, because they lacked the intestinal fortitude to call police state legislation by its own name. The legislation that has been passed during the Bush regime is far more dangerous to Americans than Muslim terrorists.

Indeed, the prime cause of Muslim terrorism is the US interference in the internal affairs of Muslim countries and America's one-sided stance in favor of Israel in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. When Jimmy Carter was president, his even-handed approach made the US respected throughout the Muslim world. 9/11, if it was actually an act of Muslim terrorism, was the direct consequence of US one-sided meddling in Middle Eastern affairs.

When, and only when, the Democrats have erased the Bush administration's police state legislation from the books, thus restoring the Constitution, they should clear the air on two other issues of major importance. The Democrats must convene a commission of independent experts to investigate 9/11. The 9/11 Commission Report has too many problems and shortcomings to be believable.

Recent polls show that 36 percent of the American people do not believe the report. Such a deficient report is unacceptable. 9/11 became the excuse for the neoconservative Bush regime to launch illegal wars of aggression in the Middle East. The 9/11 Commission Report is nothing but a public relations justification for the "war on terror," which in truth is a war on American liberty. As long as politicians with a police state mentality can cling to the cover of the 9/11 Commission Report, the Bill of Rights will remain endangered.

The other issue is the blatant corruption in the Bush regime's contract practices. So many contracts are tainted with their connections to Republican power brokers, including Vice President Richard Cheney, that the taxpayers are being fleeced on the level of the Grant administration. Indictments and long prison sentences are in order.

This leaves the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Both are lost. Both invasions were illegal. Those responsible must be held accountable. The American prosecutors of the Nazi war criminals at Nuremberg emphasized, as Robert Jackson put it, that Germany's crime was not in losing the war but in starting it. Under the Nuremberg standard, to launch a war of aggression is a war crime. It is punishable with a death sentence.

As the wars are crimes, they must be stopped. Having overthrown a stable secular regime in Iraq, the US and its craven allies have no recourse but to accept that Iraq will break into three states: In the north the Kurds will unite with the Turkish Kurds, and Turkey will have to deal with the situation without US interference. In the south, the Shiites will have an Islamic regime similar to the government in Iran, with whom the Iraqi Shiites will be allied. The Sunnis will be isolated in the middle without any oil.

The US and Britain no longer have any role to play in the Middle East. As the King of Jordan predicted, there is now a Shiite crescent that runs from Iran through Iraq into Lebanon. This Shiite crescent is the most powerful force in the Middle East.

The Iraqi Sunnis can come to terms with Shiite power or be destroyed. The American puppet states of Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and the oil emirates are faced with the instability that comes from being allied with the "hegemonic" West against their own people. It is up to their own wits whether they can make the transformation.

The US has neither the resources, the finances, nor the credibility to intervene.

The Israelis have isolated themselves with their genocidal policies against the Palestinians. Intelligent Israelis are already sending their children out of the country. Israeli peace groups have thrown up their hands in the face of the persistent intransigence of the Israeli government and the disregard of common sense. It remains to be seen if the Israelis can learn to care about anyone but their own kind. Israel can save itself if its political leaders will stop pushing Palestinians off of their own land by destroying their homes and orchards and murdering their children, thus turning more Palestinians into refugees. It would be easy for the economically talented Israelis to pull the Palestinians into prosperity, thereby ending the conflict. Are Israelis capable of the humane leadership required to create a place for themselves in the Middle East or are they forever wed to Mao's dictum that "power comes out of the barrel of a gun"?

Republican rule in the 21st century has devastated American civil liberties and American prestige and leadership capability. Can Democrats restore American liberties and leadership, or will a lust for power corrupt them, too, and cause Democrats to retain the police state powers Bush has created?

If the Bush regime's police state legislation is still law in 2008, the Democrats will have failed.

Everyone is talking about... American Blackout!







See the film everyone is talking about...
American Blackout
in Portland 7pm Thu Nov 2nd - St Francis Dining Hall - 330 SE 11th Ave


Whatever you think you know about our election systems or Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, this film will make you question further why the news media fails to accurately inform the public. Directed by GNN's Ian Inaba, creator of Eminem's "Mosh" music video, American Blackout critically examines the contemporary tactics used to control our democratic process and silence voices of political dissent.

Many have heard of the alleged voting irregularities that occurred during the presidential elections of 2000 and 2004. Until now, these incidents have gone under- reported and are commonly written-off as insignificant rumors or unintentional mishaps resulting from an overburdened election system.

American Blackout chronicles the recurring patterns of voter disenfranchisement from Florida 2000 to Ohio 2004 while following the story of Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney. Mckinney not only took an active role investigating these election debacles, but has found herself in the middle of her own after publicly questioning the Bush Administration about the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Featuring: Congressional members John Conyers, John Lewis, Stephanie Tubbs-Jones, Bernie Sanders and jounalists Greg Palast and Bob Fitrakis.

Backers Hail 9/11 Theorist's Speech

By Michael Riley Denver Post Staff Writer / Original / 10/29/2006 Mike Berger, left, who made a film called Improbable Collapse, and J.A. Calhoun, Green Party candidate for the 2nd Congressional District, talk outside Math Auditorium at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Sept. 11 conspiracy theorists spoke there Sunday. (Post / Lyn Alweis) The standing ovation has finally died down, and Steven E. Jones, a soft-spoken physics professor, finds himself pinned against the stage by some of the enthusiastic fans who packed a University of Denver auditorium over the weekend to see him. A man with a "Got truth?" T-shirt offers Jones a careful explanation for why the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center were operated by remote control. Another quizzes him about the size of the footprint of the Pentagon crash - too small, he says, for the Boeing 757 that "officially" smashed into it on Sept. 11, 2001. "Can I just shake your hand?" a woman in a baggy red sweater asks Jones. "You're doing such important work." If anything, Jones appears embarrassed by all the attention. Quiet and self-effacing, he's an unlikely hero for 9/11 conspiracy theorists of every stripe, but that's exactly what he's become. A physicist whose background includes work on nuclear fusion, Jones was put on leave by Brigham Young University in September after publishing a paper saying that the twin towers couldn't have collapsed solely as a result of the planes that rammed the upper floors on Sept. 11. The paper theorizes that explosives planted inside the building must have been involved and that the buildings' collapse was essentially a controlled demolition. Though Jones doesn't specify who he believes planted the charges, he concedes it would have had to be "an inside job" and likely would have included either very powerful figures on the American scene or entities inside the government. "It's a thought that I admit has made me lose some sleep," Jones said. Neither the 9/11 commission nor other extensive government reports have found any evidence of a secondary cause of the towers' collapse. But Jones and his work reflect the mainstreaming of a movement that has defied

Former Intelligence Agent Says Google In Bed With CIA
Steele also sounds off on 9/11 doubts
A former clandestine services officer for the CIA who also maintains close relationships with top Google representatives says that the company is "in bed with" the intelligence agency and the U.S. government. He has also gone public on his deep suspicions about the official explanation behind 9/11.
Robert David Steele appeared on the nationally syndicated Alex Jones radio show and began by voicing his deep doubts about the official 9/11 story.
While Steele stopped short of saying 9/11 was a complete inside job, he agreed that the evidence points to the overwhelming complicity of the Bush administration.
"The U.S. government did not properly investigate this and there are more rocks to be turned over," said Steele adding, "I'm absolutely certain that WTC 7 was brought down by controlled demolition and that as far as I'm concerned means that this case has not been properly investigated."
"There's no way that building could have come down without controlled demolition."
Steele pointed the finger of suspicion directly at the Vice President saying, "There's no question in my own mind that Dick Cheney is the tar baby in this whole thing."
Steele outlined the bizarre circumstances preceding the attack that would have greased the skids for bombs to be planted in the buildings.
"You do have the whole issue of the security cameras being disengaged, the bomb sniffing dogs being r

PLEASE SIGN THESE PETITIONS:
9/11 Widows Want Rice/Tenet Documents Released By Jason Leopold / Truthout / October 25, 2006 A handful of 9/11 widows have started an online petition in hopes of gathering the public's support to force the White House to declassify documents related to a July 10, 2001, meeting between Condoleezza Rice and former CIA director George Tenet in which the two discussed a pending attack on US soil by al-Qaeda. Details of the meeting were first disclosed a month ago in the book State of Denial by Washington Post assistant managing editor and author Bob Woodward. In a letter posted on petitononline.com, Patty Casazza, Monica Gabrielle, Mindy Kleinberg, and Lorie Van Auken said that details of the meeting have been confirmed by the State Department and the White House warrants declassification of documents related to the meeting. The widows take issue with Woodward's exclusive access to officials' knowledgeable about the Rice/Tenet meeting and the possibility that he may have been privy to classified documents and transcripts in order to craft a narrative for his book. "If Bob Woodward can have access to this information, why can't we, as American citizens and victims' family members?" Van Auken wrote in an email to Truthout, adding that the families of the thousands of people who perished on 9/11 are entitled to know what Bush administration officials knew prior to the 9/11 attacks and when they knew it. "Given that much of the July 10, 2001, meeting has already been made public ... it is unacceptable to continue to keep these documents and transcripts hidden from the American public's view." The widows, in their online petition addressed to the media and members of Congress, renewed their call for the declassification of the redacted 28 pages of the Joint Inquiry Into the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001, and the CIA Inspector General's Report, "CIA Accountability With Respect to the 9/11 Attacks."
9/11 Call for Truth Sign the petition It has become abundantly clear to a majority of the American people, not to mention the rest of the world, that the Bush administration has utterly failed to conduct a satisfactory investigation into the events of 9/11. There has been no satisfactory explanation for the failure of our air defenses on that day, and the suspicion that the government itself was complicit in the attacks is widespread and growing rapidly. Since the 9/11 attacks have been used by the Bush administration to justify its so-called "war on terror" at home and abroad, causing the loss of fundamental civil liberties as well as tens of thousands of lives, the failure to properly investigate those attacks is inexcusable and intolerable. We are bitterly disappointed and equally outraged by the failure of the mainstream media and Congress to demand action by the executive branch befitting of a democratic republic. We therefore plead, with the utmost urgency, that the American people do everything possible to elect people to office who will stand up to those in power, defend our right to know the full truth about the events of Sept. 11, 2001, and restore peace and our constitutional rights.
Former CIA insider blasts Bush http://local.lancasteronline.com/11/25039 Ray McGovern has seen the inner workings of the intelligence world and believes the United States is in desperate need of rediscovering its morality.

Judge Allows 9/11 Lawsuits to Go Forward By LARRY NEUMEISTER Associated Press Writer A federal judge on Tuesday refused to toss out claims by thousands of emergency workers who sued New York City and about 150 private contractors after the workers were sickened by dust at the World Trade Center site. Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein dismissed claims against Consolidated Edison Co. and companies controlled by developer Larry Silverstein, saying they did not have legal control over the area and therefore were not liable for damages. But Hellerstein said the city, its contractors, and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey were only partially immune from lawsuits, with the precise scope and extent of the immunity varying according to date, place and activity. Andrew J. Carboy, a lawyer for plaintiffs, called the judge's decision a first step forward in the legal system for these other victims of 9-11. Carboy, who represents 210 clients, mostly firefighters, said Hellerstein' s decision comes as the number of people making claims climbs as high as 8,000. Michael A. Cardozo, the city's top lawyer, said a close study of the facts surrounding the claims will show that the city and its contractors were not liable. Hellerstein said he will appoint a special master to help eliminate claims that should not be pressed and oversee a case that is likely to become unmanageable. If even a minority of the plaintiffs suffered serious injuries to their respiratory tracts arising from the acrid air of September 11, their claims deserve to be heard when a recovery could make a difference in their lives, the judge wrote. He said the defendants also are entitled to swift resolution. The scar to the public interest needs to be cleansed, speedily, in good time, he said. The workers claim the city and contractors were negligent in monitoring the air and assuring the safety of crews who cleaned up the World Trade Center site for months after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The judge noted that a study released in September showed that approximately 70 percent of the 10,000 workers who were tested reported that they suffer from new or substantially increased respiratory problems since 9/11.

Steve Jones Announces Early Retirement From BYU Friends and Colleagues: BYU issued a press release today -- I have elected to take early retirement from BYU. I don't have the actual release -- it will be in local papers tomorrow and may be on the BYU web site now. I feel that this is a good move for me. I have been contacted by another school about joining their faculty, and may do so -- but no decision on that yet. I think it will work out for the best. I assure you all that I will continue in my research on 9/11 issues, and speaking out -- should have more time for these activities in fact. With this window of opportunity, I sent the letter below to local newspapers; perhaps it could be posted at st911.org, Jim, if you wish. "Dr. Jones letter to newspaper editors upon announcement of his retirement from BYU," or something like that. I feel good about this -- not angry with BYU, moving on and happy with it overall. Thanks for all your support, especially to those who signed the petition at st911.org in my behalf. My sincere thanks to all my friends in the 9/11 truth community worldwide; we have a great, growing community of intelligent, caring people. We can do this! Sincerely, Steven E. Jones Physicist / 20 October 2006

Brad Blog COMMENT on 10/19/2006 @ 7:11 am PT...

The Democrats and Republicans are the same in one respect - that speaks directly to your dilemma regarding the silence (complacency / complicity) of Democrats.

Only men of low moral character are allowed through the AIPAC filter into the political arena. This virtually assures that they will be suseptible to bribery, blackmail, or both.

Sexpionage is a tool of Israel. They use it to control the political agenda in the United States.

The Bush Crime Family controls the CIA - still flying loads ok coke and heroine into Florida aboard Gulfstreanm jets every day. Why did the administration stand by impotently while Israel committed genocide in Lebanon?

Israel's Comverse owns the best wiretapping system in America, and can blackmail anyone they choose at will. That's how they control EVERYTHING. They have the evidence of Cheney's complicity with Mossad relative to 9/11. Bush 41 is the king pin, and is totally being blackmailed.

They recorded Bill Clinton having phone sex with their "swallow" Monica - and the next thing you know, Clinton reverses his policy on Gaza and pardons Marc Rich upon his exit.

This isn't rocket science - this is B L A C K M A I L. Cross them and wind up dead. Ask Chandra Levy. Put Lieberman and Chertoff under oath and let's get to the bottom of this.

"Official" 9/11 story On Life support; The Truth is Taking Over by John Perry / October 18, 2006 / http://www.opednews.com The gutless purveyors of fraud trying to shout down the 9/11 Truth movement are not going to like this news. The "official" story is on life support, and the prognosis is not good. A new New York Times/CBS poll reveals that only 16 percent of Americans think they're being told the whole truth about 9/11, down from 21 percent in May of 2002. Over this same period, the number who believe the administration is "hiding something" has actually decreased from 65 to 53 percent, which might seem odd, but only until you take into account that the ranks of those who think the Bush crime family is "mostly lying" has skyrocketed from 8 to 28 percent. Feelings are getting stronger. Skepticism is giving way to certainty. The 9/11 Truth Movement is growing exponentially. This growth appears to be striking nerves in the "debunker" community. They're no longer just laughing feebly and attempting to toss us into the imaginary dustbin of negative connotations with labels like "conspiracy theorists", "paranoid liberals" and "clown shoe conspiradroids" (which I'm sure somebody spent hours coming up with and thinks is really clever). It now seems that we are beginning to move from stage one of nineteenth century philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer's three stages of truth, which is ridicule, to stage two, which is violent opposition (stage three is acceptance of the truth as being self-evident). This is apparent in the fact that many in the "debunking" crowd have now taken to equating us with people who deny the Holocaust. That's right folks, we're "9/11 deniers". These goons can't even make their propaganda make sense. How can a movement of millions seeking the truth about and justice for 9/11 possibly be called deniers? Why would we be seeking answers for something that we're supposedly denying? They might counter that we are denying not the event, but the truth of the event. That is, the truth according to them, which essentially consists of "your crackpot theories have been debunked hundreds of times, shut up, go home, conspiradroid." Forget a truly objective analysis of the entirety of evidence. The "debunkers" can't be bothered. We just need to take their word for it. They're smarter than us and we should just accept whatever they say as gospel. Nice try, geniuses. The real deniers are staring back at you from the mirror. For the sake of clarity: I am not attacking those who are unsure where they stand regarding responsibility for the 9/11 attacks, or those who just plain don't think it's possible that a remorseless band of homegrown murderers could exist within our own government. I am living proof that this is not a reality that is easy to accept. It took me over two years of quiet research and another six months before I could bring myself to write about it. I eventually realized that silence is tantamount to complicity, and the writing came easily. My focus is on those who viciously, sophomorically, disingenuously and shamefully attack us for simply trying to initiate a legitimate, truly independent 9/11 investigation. If you think the 9/11 Commission's "investigation" was legitimate, you need to expand your information horizons. Reams of very important, very relevant testimony that occurred before them was completely ignored in their final report. For example, the testimony of former transportation secretary Norman Mineta. Mineta was in the Presidential Emergency Operations Center with Dick Cheney on the morning of 9/11, as the craft that eventually struck the Pentagon approached. Here is an excerpt from his testimony: "There was a young man who would come in and say to the vice president 'the plane is 50 miles out'...'the plane is 30 miles out'...and when it got down to 'the plane is 10 miles out', the young man also said to the vice president 'do the orders still stand?', and the vice president turned and whipped his head around and said 'of course the orders still stand. Have you heard anything to the contrary?'" Given the undisputed reality that whatever was approaching the Pentagon did indeed eventually hit the building, what could those orders possibly have been, except to NOT shoot down that aircraft? And if this is the case, why was it NOT shot down? A legitimate 9/11 Commission would have wanted to explore this question in depth. Instead, the issue was dropped and Mineta's testimony was not mentioned in their final report. Quite interestingly, Mr. Mineta very quietly resigned his position in June of this year, the day after James Fetzer, Co-Founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth made this appearance on Fox News Channel's Hannity and Colmes program. Perhaps it was divine intervention that had Oliver North sitting in for hapless Bush parrot Sean Hannity that evening, which allowed Fetzer to actually complete a few sentences without being repeatedly drowned out by childish Hannity rants. It might also interest you to know that the executive director of the supposedly independent 9/11 Commission was a man named Philip Zelikow, who also happens to have served on the Bush transition team, penned Bush's preemptive war strategy, and co-written a book with his close friend Condoleezza Rice. The 9/11 Commission is a complete farce. Three thousand people died on 9/11 and nobody in government got so much as a slap on the wrist. Anybody who refers to this group's "investigation" as confirmation of the "official story" of 9/11 is either under-informed or lying. There is much more on this aspect of the 9/11 cover up in the must-see new film "9/11 Press for Truth", which you can watch for free, in its entirety, right here. The attackers of the 9/11 Truth Movement are failing their country miserably. They are not patriots. They are the aspiring fascist foot soldiers of the neoconservative new world vision. They would rather get in line and follow a lie than risk some harmless scorn in a genuine search for truth and justice. They are cowards of the highest order. I have said it before and I will say it again: It takes little more than a grade school education to understand that the tragic events of 9/11 did indeed involve a conspiracy. This is not theory. This is FACT. Read the definition of the word. The real questions: Who are the conspirators? Who had the means to carry out the mission? Who stood to benefit most from it? A truly legitimate, truly independent 9/11 investigation would operate transparently, explore these questions thoroughly and answer them conclusively. It seems to me that anyone interested in quieting the "conspiracy theorists" for good would be perfectly willing to accept such an investigation. How about it, all you "debunkers"? If you're not a bunch of Bush boot-licking brown shirt wanna-bes, prove it. If you're tired of hearing us speculate, put your money where your mouth is. Stand side by side with the 9/11 Truth Movement, call for a completely transparent, truly independent 9/11 investigation, and demand justice. www.johnperryonline.com John Perry is a rock radio personality, freelance writer and citizen activist.

9/11 and The New Pearl Harbor: Response to Bill Weinberg
by Michael Caine / FTW Energy Affairs Editor

ALMOST no one who opposes the idea of U.S. government involvement in 9/11 has seriously confronted Crossing The Rubicon by Mike Ruppert. And sadly, many in the 9/11 truth movement who do embrace the notion of U.S. government involvement will not deal with Rubicon. This 9/11 report points to one notable exception to the latter, Bill Weinberg, and since Weinberg’s opinion was first published at Guerilla News Network, FTW is posting this story for free on our site because it will also be posted on the GNN site. While Weinberg did at least deal with the contents of Rubicon, his arguments are extremely fallacious as Michael Kane explains in this report.

Rubicon remains the most impeccably-documented and thoroughly-researched analysis of 9/11 but also the most ignored and least confronted. Unlike the physical evidence of 9/11, i.e. “Were there explosives in the buildings? Did a plane hit the Pentagon?”—evidence which has been destroyed and cannot be proven in a court of law, Rubicon reveals the military, legal, and energy-resource evidence behind 9/11 that cannot be tampered with because it is historical fact and could easily be proven in a court of law—IF there were any courts in the United States where such evidence could receive a fair and impartial hearing without sabotage or assassination. —CB]

October 9th 2006, 3:56PM [PST] – New York – Recently Bill Weinberg has trashed everyone who believes 9/11 was perpetrated by the U.S. Government in a report published at GNN.tv.

He makes some valid points regarding bad analysis and sloppy documentation put forth by some who claim to be 9/11 “skeptics” searching for “truth.” But where Weinberg falls flat on his face is in his evasive analysis of the most important area of research surrounding 9/11: The multiple 9/11 war games.

In his analysis of the war games, Weinberger never once mentions FromTheWilderness.com, Mike Ruppert or Crossing the Rubicon.

FTW is used to getting attacked, in many ways. David Corn and Alexander
Cockburn spent a good amount of time attacking Ruppert from 2002 to 2004. Cockburn denies that global warming exists or is a serious threat to humanity.

Unlike Cockburn, I respect Weinberg, and find him to be an intelligent and valid analyst of current events and history. There are even two tactics Weinberg uses in his report against official complicity in the 9/11 attacks that I respect.

First, he begins his argument in a way I have not seen used by our detractors in the past. He admits that official governmental conspiracies exist, and it would be “irresponsible not to consider the possibility that elements of the CIA and/or Bush administration had a hand in the events of September 11, 2001.”

Secondly, he does something no one else will do any longer when attacking those who say 9/11 was an inside job: He mentions Mike Ruppert.

Since Crossing the Rubicon was published, all of FTW’s favorite detractors (Corn, Cockburn et al.) have shut their mouths, no longer mentioning our work especially as it pertains to the crimes of 9/11. They can’t dispute our case so they have no other choice.

Weinberg was brave enough to invoke the name that others now steer clear of, but he did not seriously challenge our case at all. Instead he focuses on minor disputes that he had with FTW’s Oh Lucy! timeline four years ago. These points are not in anyway central to the case against Dick Cheney as laid out in Crossing the Rubicon. The main point Weinberg drives home is over the interpretation of a French report published in Le Figaro. The report claims bin Laden met with CIA officials during his stay in a Dubai hospital shortly before 9/11. Le Figaro has never retracted the story. Weinberg says Ruppert translated
a French word in the report incorrectly. Ruppert responded at length to
Weinberg regarding this issue at the time, and his response was partially in French. Weinberg did not reprint Mike Ruppert’s response in full in his recent report; he selectively quoted from it.

Regardless of who is right in terms of such minutiae (I cannot truly say since I don’t speak French), this debate is meaningless and has no impact on FTW’s central case naming Dick Cheney as the prime suspect in the crimes of 9/11. To prove such a case in a court of law you must show MEANS, MOTIVE and OPPORTUNITY. When Weinberg finally does try to take a swing at our case in his report, he doesn’t even mention us!

Instead he uses Alex Jones’ extremely flawed and inaccurate analysis of the 9/11 war games as a straw man, easily knocked down. It is simple to win a debate on fact checking against Alex Jones, (Prison Planet) who has continually co-opted FTW’s investigation into these matters without ever mentioning our work or representing it accurately. Weinberg writes:

(Alex Jones says) “The CIA was conducting drills of flying hijacked planes into the WTC and Pentagon at 8:30 in the morning.”

But this last claim is not verified. In fact, PP’s own embedded link on the drills goes to its page delineating several Pentagon (not CIA) exercises scheduled for the morning of 9-11, including one (“Vigilant Guardian”) that concerned a multiple hijacking scenario—but none concerning “drills of flying hijacked planes into the WTC and Pentagon.” The only one which came close to “drills of flying hijacked planes into the WTC and Pentagon” actually concerned such a scenario at the Chantilly, Va., offices of the DoD’s National Reconnaissance Office.

The apparent fact of the Vigilant Guardian exercise is used by numerous
conspiracy websites (such as the modestly named WhatReallyHappened.com)
as evidence of an Air Force “stand-down” on 9-11. It is well-established (and not actually contested by PP or What Really Happened) that fighter jets were, in fact, scrambled from Langely (sic) Air Force Base in Virginia and Falmouth AFB in Massachusetts on the morning of 9-11. Why they failed to find the hijacked planes is a legitimate question, and it may have to do with confusion arising from Vigilant Guardian. But this is not the same as a “stand-down,” which the American Heritage dictionary defines as “a relaxation from a state of readiness or alert.” Yet “Truth” activists continue to espouse the “stand-down” as dogma.

For anyone who has read Crossing the Rubicon, Weinberg’s analysis is terrible. Let me first correct the straw man lie from Alex Jones that Weinberg so easily knocked down. The CIA drill on 9/11 was headed by the National Reconnaissance Organization (NRO) which simulated an emergency response to an aircraft crashing into its headquarters at 8:30 am (precisely the time an almost identical scenario “turned real” at the World Trade Center and later at the Pentagon). This drill was coordinated with local law enforcement and emergency response organizations. So the NRO – the hi-tech headquarters for the CIA – was very well prepared to respond just in case a plane happened to crash into it on 9/11. Mike Ruppert wrote the following opinion regarding
this drill on page 382 of Crossing the Rubicon:

The NRO is probably one of the top ten high-value targets in the country. Nobody (in the US Government or military) wanted it hit, but if the (9/11) plans went awry it just might be hit. Everyone knows that there are no guarantees when you start something this big. Things get out of hand; someone fails to follow the plan; loyalties change; people screw up their mission, the fog of war. It would be prudent to have the NRO drill underway, with police, fire, paramedics, and everything else there just in case. Good thinking!

All Weinberg has ‘proven’ is that Alex Jones is not a reliable source. That’s no newsflash to FTW readers. But what he doesn’t do is take on the documentation laid out in Crossing the Rubicon that shows not only were there multiple, conflicting Air Force war games running on 9/11, but that Dick Cheney was in charge of managing them.1 The 9/11 war games created the opportunity for the crimes of that day to unfold as planned.

What I was going to say at the WCW Rally I AM PROUD AND HONORED TO BE ADDRESSING MEMBERS OF THE FACT-BASED COMMUNITY. I AM GINNY ROSS AND I AM HERE TO REPRESENT DEMOCRACY FOR OREGON AND THE PORTLAND 9/11 TRUTH ALLIANCE. THESE GROUPS WORK TO TELL THE FACTS WHEN NO ONE ELSE WILL. CONCERNING THE UNCHECKED BUSH/CHENEY CRIME SYNDICATE AND THE QUESTIONABLE, AT BEST, MAJORITIES IN CONGRESS, WE HAVE FIVE YEARS OF APPALLING FACTS TO REPORT --- INNUMERABLE WAR CRIMES, COUNTLESS ACTS OF PLUNDER, AND ONGOING ASSAULTS AGAINST OUR DEMOCRACY AND OUR CONSTITUTION. I CAN NOT HOPE TO COVER THEM IN 3 MINUTES. SO I WILL RAISE THE TWO MOST IMPORTANT FACTS OF ALL --- FACTS THAT NEED TO RISE ABOVE THE SEA OF APPALLING FACTS ALL AROUND US, AND BE REPEATED, SHARED WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS, AND TOLD TO THE WORLD. FIRST, THE MOST IMPORTANT FACT TO UNDERSTAND ABOUT THE REGIME INHABITING OUR EXECUTIVE BRANCH NOW IS THAT GEORGE W. BUSH WASNEVER ELECTED AS OUR PRESIDENT, EITHER BY A POPULAR VOTE OR BY AN ELECTORAL COLLEGE MAJORITY. NEVER. NOT IN 2000. AND NOT IN 2004. THOSE WHO REMAIN WILLFULLY IGNORANT OF THIS, SIMPLY HAVE NOT STUDIED THE FACTS. WHY IS BUSH IN OFFICE? BECAUSE THE DEMOCRATS ARE CONTROLLED BY THE SAME SYNDICATE THAT CONTROLS OUR ELECTIONS! IT IS ALSO IN LARGE PART BECAUSE, IN AMERICA TODAY, PRIVATE PARTISAN CORPORATIONS ARE SECRETLY COUNTING OUR VOTE WITH PROPRIETARY SOFTWARE. OUR ELECTION SYSTEM SIMPLY DOES NOT MEET ANY MINIMUM STANDARD OF DEMOCRACY. AND IT STILL DOES NOT, TO THIS DAY. THE SECOND MOST MOST IMPORTANT FACT TO UNDERSTAND TODAY, IS THAT ON 9/11 2001, THREE WORLD TRADE CENTER BUILDINGS WERE BROUGHT DOWN WITH PRE-POSITIONED EXPLOSIVES IN CONTROLLED DEMOLITION EVENTS. WORLD TRADE CENTER 7 WAS NOT EVEN HIT BY A PLANE. THESE EVENTS OCCURRED ON A DAY IN WHICH TEN OR MORE WAR GAMES, INCLUDING LIVE FLY EXERCISES, SCHEDULED WELL IN ADVANCE, SUPERVISED BY RICHARD CHENEY, WERE CONDUCTED IN THE NORTHERN ATLANTIC AIRSPACE IN THE US TO SIMULATE THE ACTUAL HIJACKINGS AND BUILDING COLLISIONS THAT OCCURRED. 9/11/01 IS AN EXAMPLE OF A STATE-SPONSORED FALSE FLAG TERROR EVENT. 9/11 WAS AN INSIDE JOB AND THOSE WHO REMAIN WILLFULLY IGNORANT OF THIS FACT, SIMPLY HAVE NOT STUDIED THE FACTS. THOSE WHO FAIL TO COVER THESE FACTS, SUCH AS THE CORPORATE CONTROLLED PROPAGANDA MACHINE FORMERLY KNOWN AS THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA, ARE PARTICIPANTS IN A MASSIVE AND UNFORGIVEABLE COVER-UP OF UNSPEAKABLE CRIMES. AND THOSE WHO FAIL TO LEARN FROM HISTORY, ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT IT. THANK YOU.

Great post on Brad Blog today by GrizzlyBearDancer...
Yesterday i coincidently was seated next to a young guy at a temporary agency to watch a video on shipping hazardous material. We started talking about the anthrax originating from a US military facility and 911. Not knowing if he was even pro-bush he told me he was a weapons expert as which included explosives with a backround in physics who was stationed in Afganistan BEFORE the US invasion of IRAQ. He told me when his special forces unit watched the World Trade Towers II and I fall, they knew that explosives brought down those building. He did not see World Trade Tower building #7 which fell 10 hours later although not hit by an aircraft one block away. I asked how he knew? He said because of simple physics and the smoke from the blasting caps on the lower floors prior to their collapse..INSIDE JOB.

As Conover points out, the dread list of "conspiracy nuts" includes not only such usual suspects as Mike Ruppert of CopVCia website notoriety, but also the newest "arch conspiracist," Georgia Representative Cynthia McKinney, who had the temerity to call for an investigation into what the Bush administration knew before the attacks and the connection of Bush and the Carlyle Group, one of the largest corporations which is profiting handsomely from the "war on terrorism." Ms. Conover ends her thoughtful essay with a salient question: "So how do we explain this behavior of the lily-livered left? If the Ivory Tower gentlemen are leaving it to us in the trenches to get to the truth, because they won't dirty their hands to help us collect the bits and pieces to connect the dots, why then are they so ferociously attacking our efforts? Are they currying favor with someone? Is it time for us to start following the money?" Yes, indeed it's time we started following the money to explain the gutlessness of the establishment "liberals" and also to follow the money in the entire 9/11 phenomenon to see who profits from this catastrophe and how.
Iran daily says 9/11 a 'White House conspiracy' Monday, September 11, 2006 TEHRAN: A hardline Iranian newspaper on Monday described the September 11 attacks as a "black conspiracy inside the White House", publishing what it said was evidence the strikes could have been staged by US officials. The paper, whose editor-in-chief is appointed by Iran's supreme leader Ali Khamenei, compiled a full page of reports from foreign press sources which it said cast serious doubts on the official version of events. The reports "show the involvement of the American officials in the event," it said. One of its sub headlines read: "The American (government) staged the 11 September event to justify its attacks on Iraq and Afghanistan," while the main headline read, "Black conspiracy inside the White House". "Many Americans completely believe that their country's officials have concealed their involvement in the September 11 tragedy," the paper said. Iran's then reformist government of former president Mohammad Khatami was quick to condemn the airborne attacks of Sept 11, 2001 on New York and Washington carried out by Al-Qaeda militants which killed nearly 3,000 people. Iran and the United States have had no diplomatic relations sine the seizure of the US embassy in Tehran in 1979 and remain at loggerheads over the Islamic republic's nuclear programme. Fellow hardline daily Jomhuri Islami also raised questions about the official version of September 11, in a story headlined, "The Satanic project of September 11".

Dear 9/11 truth activists and concerned citizens, This is the last email you will receive from me. I am moving to Latin America in less than a month, and I have decided to officially resign from the 9/11 Visibility Project. I want to thank everyone who responded to my article, "9/11 Five Years Later" (http://www.septembereleventh.org/five_years_later.php). Your emails were inspiring, and your criticisms were both constructive and thought-provoking. After reading them, I realized I was a bit too despairing in my assessment of the state of the movement, and so now want to forward you something hopeful. It is an excerpt from Mia Hamel's most recent 9/11 truth newsletter, entitled "9/11 Inspiration." While I cannot vouch for the claimed Tibetan source of the "Shambhala Prophesy," nonetheless it conveys great wisdom and practical advice for 9/11 truth activists. I believe that if we are to succeed, we must not act out of anger or fear, out of a perception of an "us" and a "them," and out of a belief that there is a difference between the outside world and our inner selves. Mia's words reveal an important truth. Mia Hammel, by the way, is going to court in Tampa tomorrow for an act of civil disobedience for the cause of 9/11 truth. She has my upmost respect and appreciation. As a testament to the power of nonviolent civil disobedience, Mia and her group in Tampa have received what might be the best, most positive news coverage the 9/11 truth movement has ever seen. Fox News, in covering her arrest, even showed the collapse of building 7 twice! Here is a link to the Fox News video coverage: http://www.911podcasts.com/display.php?vid=156 On a practical note, many of you have donated and received various DVDS from us. Please know that these videos are still available and are being produced and supplied by the same people at 911TV. It is only I who am moving on. 911TV, and our local public access TV project (http://www.septembereleventh.org/alerts/publicaccess.php), are still very much in operation. You can still get the same excellent 9/11 DVDs that have always been available, and you will still receive occasional updates on new 9/11 truth video material. Lastly, I am offering three domain names for sale: september-11.com september-11th.com septembereleventh.net I bought these domains at 10:00 AM on the day of the attacks, because it was my birthday and I knew that the day would likely be used to promote war for the rest of my life. For a long time I simply pointed them to the 9/11 Visibility Project website, but now I am in need of travel money, so I am offering them on a first-come first-serve basis for $500 each. If you are interested, please visit this link: http://www.septembereleventh.org/donations.php Again, thank you for sticking with us all these years, and for all that you do towards peace and truth. On my way to Latin America, Emanuel Sferios Webmaster, SeptemberEleventh.org
9/11 INSPIRATION (from the newsletter of Mia Hamel) To subscribe go here: http://visitor.constantcontact.com/email.jsp?m=1101377362823&lang=en 9/11 Truth is a keyhole into consciousness. We search our hearts and minds for meaning and inspiration to effectively spread 9/11 truth. As we examine our inner landscape and its impact on the exterior world, the connections offer infinite opportunities for change, and choices of attitude and behavior. We profoundly sense our interconnectedness. 1. THE SHAMBHALA PROPHESY Coming to us across twelve centuries, the prophecy about the coming of the Shambhala warriors illustrates the challenges we face in the Great Turning and the strengths we can bring to it. Tibetan friends in India have come to believe that this ancient prophecy referred to this very planet-time. The signs it foretold are recognizable now, signs of great danger. There are varying interpretations of this prophecy. Some portray the coming of the kingdom of Shambhala as an internal event, a metaphor for one's inner spiritual journey independent of the world around us. Others present it as an entirely external event that will unfold independently of what we may choose to do or what our participation may be in the healing of our world. A third version of the prophecy was given by teacher Choegyal Rinpoche of the Tashi Jong community in northern India: "There comes a time when all life on Earth is in danger. Great barbarian powers have arisen. Although these powers spend their wealth in preparations to annihilate one another, they have much in common: weapons of unfathomable destructive power, and technologies that lay waste our world. In this era, when the future of sentient life hangs by the frailest of threads, the kingdom of Shambhala emerges. You cannot go there, for it is not a place; it is not a geopolitical entity. It exists in the hearts and minds of the Shambhala warriors. Nor can you recognize a Shambhala warrior when you see her or him, for they wear no uniforms or insignia, and they carry no banners. They have no barricades on which to climb to threaten the enemy, or behind which they can hide to rest or regroup. They do not even have any home turf. Always they must move on the terrain of the barbarians themselves. "Now the time comes when great courage — moral and physical courage — is required of the Shambhala warriors, for they must go into the very heart of the barbarian power, into the pits and pockets and citadels where the weapons are kept, to dismantle them. To dismantle weapons, in every sense of the word, they must go into the corridors of power where decisions are made. "The Shambhala warriors have the courage to do this because they know that these weapons are manomaya, or 'mind-made.' Made by the human mind, they can be unmade by the human mind. The Shambhala warriors know that the dangers threatening life on Earth are not visited upon us by any extraterrestrial power, satanic deities, or preordained evil fate. They arise from our own decisions, our own lifestyles, and our own relationships. "So in this time, the Shambhala warriors go into training. They train in the use of two weapons ... The weapons are compassion and insight. Both are necessary. "You have to have compassion because it gives you the juice, the power, the passion to move. It means not to be afraid of the pain of the world. Then you can open to it, step forward, act. But that weapon by itself is not enough. It can burn you out, so you need the other: insight, into the radical interdependence of all phenomena. With that wisdom you know that it is not a battle between 'good guys' and 'bad guys,' because the line between good and evil runs through the landscape of every human heart. With insight into our profound inter-relatedness — our deep ecology — you know that actions undertaken with pure intent have repercussions throughout the web of life, beyond what you can measure or discern. By itself, that insight may appear too cool, too conceptual, to sustain you and keep you moving, so you need the heat of compassion. Together, insight and compassion can sustain us as agents of wholesome change. They are gifts for us to claim now in the healing of our world. "These two weapons of the Shambhala warrior represent two essential aspects of the Work that Reconnects. One is the recognition and experience of our pain for the world. The other is the recognition and experience of our radical, empowering interconnectedness with all life." http://www.hopedance.org/archive/38/articles/150.html 2. OPEN YOUR HEART TO GAIA Step 1- Take a few moments to open to the beauty and fragility of our Home Planet and to admit to yourself how deeply you love this planet, how terribly sad you are about so much of what is going on right now and how very afraid you are of all that seems to wait for us in the near future. Step 2 - Hold a vision of the world you want to live in - the world you want to leave behind for the children born today, a world of justice and harmony and breathtaking beauty. Step 3 - Affirm your intention to do YOUR part to heal our home by holding it, and everyone in it, in love in all you think and say and do. Ask quietly "What is MY part today in bringing the Great Turning into full manifestation?" Step 4 - Trust that there is a Guiding Consciousness Of Infinite Love and Wisdom in and around you - permeating everything and everyone everywhere - that wants you to feel safe and be happy. Imagine that you invite this Consciousness to show you how to live fearlessly for peace and in peace today. Ask for its help. Then let it help guide what you think and say and do throughout the days that lie ahead... 3. GREAT TURNING GUIDELINES Come From Gratitude To be alive in this beautiful, self-organizing universe--to participate in the dance of life with senses to perceive it, lungs that breathe it, organs that draw nourishment from it--is a wonder beyond words. Gratitude for the gift of life is the primary wellspring of all religions, the hallmark of the mystic, the source of all true art. Furthermore, it is a privilege to be alive in this time when we can choose to take part in the self-healing of our world. Don't Be Afraid of the Dark This is a dark time, filled with suffering and uncertainty. Like living cells in a larger body, it is natural that we feel the trauma of our world. So don't be afraid of the anguish you feel, or the anger or fear, for these responses arise from the depth of your caring and the truth of your interconnectedness with all beings. To suffer with is the literal meaning of compassion. Dare To Vision Out of this darkness a new world can arise, not to be constructed by our minds so much as to emerge from our dreams. Even though we cannot see clearly how it's going to turn out, we are still called to let the future into our imagination. We will never be able to build what we have not first cherished in our hearts. Roll Up Your Sleeves Many people don't get involved in the Great Turning because there are so many different issues, which seem to compete with each other. Shall I expose 9/11 Truth, promote adherence to the Geneva Conventions or work on voting reform? The truth is that all aspects of the current crisis reflect the same mistake of setting ourselves apart and using others for our gain, the prevalence of deception and the betrayal of trust. So to heal one aspect helps the others to heal as well. Just find what you love to work on and take joy in that. No need to try to do it alone. Link up with others; you'll spark each others' ideas and sustain each others' energy. Act Your Age Since every particle in your body goes back to the first flaring forth of space and time, the 'Big Bang', you truly are as old as the universe. So when you are lobbying at your congressperson's office, visiting your local firehouse with a 9/11 DVD, debating on a call in show with a government shill about the Popular Mechanics article, or rallying the activists to get out there and make their presence known, you are doing that not out of some personal whim, but in the full authority of your 15 billion years of existence. Mother Earth needs us to stand up for her now to preserve our heritage and build our shared future. Her stewardship is our larger mission.

Bush Admits Explosives Used in Buildings

For example, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed described the design of planned attacks of buildings inside the U.S. and how operatives were directed to carry them out. That is valuable information for those of us who have the responsibility to protect the American people. He told us the operatives had been instructed to ensure that the explosives went off at a high -- a point that was high enough to prevent people trapped above from escaping.

My Letter to Rep. David Wu

David Wu for Congress Campaign Staff 818 SW 3rd Ave., #1182 Portland, OR 97204 Re: 9/11: Facing the Facts Hello all of you! I’m sure the group running David’s campaign has changed since 2004, but some of you may remember me. I did my best to help David win in ’04 by campaigning, phone banking and writing letters to the O when they launched their last minute smear attack against him. We certainly must re-elect David in November. I am writing now to ask you a favor in return. I would like you to watch the enclosed video containing short presentations from various scholars and activists about the events of 9.11.01. Share this video among yourselves and then please share it with Cong. Wu as well. Many years of research have gone into these presentations. I have researched these issues as well and can unequivocally confirm that these are fact-based presentations. My study of the virtually unreported and nearly fatal cancer of election crimes in America has led me to study facts surrounding the 9/11 events. All roads of inquiry as to how we lost our democracy in fact lead to the events of 9/11. And now, the safe future of our democratic republic depends entirely on whether political leaders enlist sufficient backbone to face the truth about 9/11. And the matter is urgent. To restore a functioning democracy in America, we must face the facts, prosecute the crimes, and restore the rule of law. With that I will simply implore you to please watch the 9/11 Overview to understand first, what the facts are, and then to begin to understand the magnitude of the cover-up currently in progress. Please pass it on to Cong. Wu. He can expect questions about reopening 9/11. People are demanding a REAL investigation, not the sham one contained in the 9/11 Commission Report. He must be briefed on why this issue is so crucial and he must know the facts. Hopefully, we can avoid an incident similar to his disastrous gaff at Wu & Brew ’04 when he dismissed election theft inquiries as the entertaining of conspiracy theories. In my view, he has never truly recovered from that error in the eyes of progressives. We knew early on that Kerry won Ohio in ’04, and expected much better of Cong. Wu in addressing that crisis. (And no, sponsoring the dangerous “feel good” band-aid of HR 550 is not sufficient action in this area. See, http://electiondefensealliance.org/hr550auditflaws and http://www.democracyfornewhampshire.com/node/view/2243 for helpful background information.) In general, this idea that “it can’t happen here” is the most insidious and dangerous thought-stopper we face. Election theft CAN happen here …. and it did. The documented GOP sponsored thefts in Ohio ’04 and Florida ’00 and other swing states are proof (see, “Fooled Again” by Mark C. Miller, PhD., “How the GOP Stole America’s 2004 Election and is Rigging 2008” by Bob Fitrakis, J.D., and the statistical proof in “Was the 2004 Presidential Election Stolen” by Stephen Freeman, PhD.) These are now commonly accepted facts – we are governed by an illegitimate executive branch and a false GOP majority. Another thing that CAN (and did) happen here are the events of 9/11 – the neo-con’s much hoped for “New Pearl Harbor.” As you will see, it should more rightly be named Bush’s Reichstag. I invite you, and Congressman Wu, to please become familiar with the facts in this area so we can avoid a repeat of his unfortunate dismissiveness at Wu & Brew ‘04. Please watch the video, pass it on to Congressman Wu and get back to me as time allows. Good luck with the campaign and take care! Sincerely, Virginia L.

THE GREAT 9/11 COVERUP AND PAKISTAN CONNECTION

by Allen L Roland "We took an oath not to talk about it during the campaign, I think correctly so, to increase the capacity of that commission's report to be heard by the people's Congress. Now it's beyond the campaign, so the promise I had to keep this out of the campaign is over. Mr. President, you knew they were in the United States. You were warned by the CIA. You knew in July they were inside the United States. You were told again by briefing officers in August that it was a dire threat. Didn't do anything to harden our border security. Didn't do anything to harden airport security. Didn't do anything to engage local law enforcement. Didn't do anything to round up INS and the consular office, and say we have to shut this down, and didn't warn the American people. What did you do? Nothing so far as we can see ": Bob Kerrey - 9/11 Commissioner So there it is ~ Bob Kerrey ,9/11 Commissioner, blows the lid off of the thoroughness of the Commission's report ~ confirming what many of us have suspected for some time ~ that the Cheney/Bush administration knowingly allowed the trade Center attack with the hope that they could use it as an excuse to implement their resulting Middle East neocon madness. That would explain everything including George W Bush's famous seven minutes of inaction after learning of the attacks ~ he was not surprised and was waiting for instructions from his master ~ Darth Vader himself ~ Dick Cheney. This whole setup and coverup has Dick Cheneys fingerprints all over it and who has been the most vociferous purveyor of 9/11 and Iraq war falsehoods and innuendos ~ Dick Cheney. Watch this extremely well researched and riveting One Hour and Twenty minute film and you will realize that the real heros, who would not give up until they uncovered the Truth, were Mindy Kleinberg, Kristen Breitweiser, Patty Casazza and Lori Van Auken ~ all were widowed by the September 11 terrorist attacks. The film builds on how all four came together as they sought answers and explanations for the tragedy. In their perseverance they helped push for the establishment of an independent commission to investigate 9/11 ~ a request Congress reluctantly fulfilled last year and with little if any encouragement from the White house. ( Soon you will know why ) But now their efforts have since taken on a life of their own and new players have entered and established that Bin Laden was involved with and protected by Pakistan Intelligence(ISI)with obvious White house knowledge. In other words, Bin Laden was much more valuable to the Cheney/Bush administration alive, to be used in their fear and demonizing campaign, than dead. So Stand by ~ the October surprise, alluded to by Bob Kerry of the 9/11 commission, is rapidly growing proof that Cheney, Bush, Rice and Rumsfeld have all been knowingly lying to Congress and the American public inorder to implement their grand neocon global master plan in Iraq. Watch these people, particularly Bush, closely in this film and tell me if you don't see the deceit, arrogance and hypocrisy dripping from their words ~ We have all been had Big Time ! Share this film with everyone you know. This is the best film available to expose 9/11 as a cover up. Click here for I Hour and 20 minute full Video. 9/11 PRESS FOR THE TRUTH http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-1016720641536424083&q=press+for+truth&pr=goog-sl Click here for two minute trailer: 9/11 PRESS FOR TRUTH Trailer: http://www.911pressfortruth.com On a personal note ~ This film had been uploaded so it could be seen by thousands of people. But this film wasn't produced without a lot of time and money invested into it. If you can, support these guys and order a DVD for yourself. They have done a tremendous service for our country.

Something for the Peak Oil Deniers Out There

(Thanks to Jim Wrathall for this alert. ~GR) Enclosed below, please find an article (Sept. 6, 2006) from the Houston Chronicle which comments on a recently released research paper (Sept. 6, 2006) done by Robert Hirsch for the US Department of Energy.
Houston Chronicle Article: Sept. 23, 2006, 8:23PM Oil crunch: U.S. Energy Department study concludes crude production will peak, requiring other energy forms Last September, a Chronicle editorial warned that global oil production would peak in this decade or the next, and then inexorably decline. Given that likelihood, the United States would have to embark on a crash program to develop alternative energy sources or endure crippling increases in the price of energy. Last week, a study performed for the U.S. Department of Energy concurred with the editorial's conclusions. The study, led by Robert Hirsch, warned that the world should be spending $1 trillion per year developing alternative energy sources — including tar sands, oil shale and gas liquefaction — to avoid having its economy crippled by oil shortages and the resulting chaos. The study recommends a 20-year lead time, so it might already be too late to prevent a crunch. The report said the timing was uncertain. Hirsch predicted peak oil production could come in five years, almost certainly by 2020. Actually, the world would not have to arrive at peak production in order to experience severe shortfalls in oil supplies. The aftermath of Hurricane Katrina showed what even a minor constriction in supply can do to drive prices skyward. Apart from natural disasters, wars, political unrest, government intervention, deteriorating equipment, accidents or any combination could interrupt the supply of oil. Demand for gasoline in the United States is dropping with the end of the summer vacation season. Consequently, prices also are dropping. But this trend is extremely temporary. Demand for oil in China, in India and throughout the developing world will continue to grow. Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson predicts that world demand for crude will increase 50 percent in a decade. Bloomburg News reported that the Energy Department study found that conventional oil production reached "soft and sudden" peaks in Texas in 1972, North America in 1985, Great Britain in 1999 and Norway in 2001. These dates were predicted by formulas used by proponents of the peak oil theory to predict the crest of global oil production. Perhaps the report's most serious conclusion is that the free market and private industry alone will not prevent economic catastrophe from energy shortages. Government must have a policy for managing the transition from conventional crude oil to other energy forms. Hirsch, a consultant and former government official overseeing research into solar and other renewable energy forms, said the conversion from oil could be compared to the race for the moon or the mobilization for World War II. Consumers, he said, could not rely on oil companies to get the huge job done. If oil company managers disagree, they need to demonstrate where all the oil is going to come from to meet rising demand, or propose their own plans for developing alternative sources.

Ginny, Tarpley and Brains on a Plane

Also note new audio in column at right Meanwhile --- just got back from a trip in which I spent a lot of time in planes and airports but used the opportunity to read 9/11 Synthetic Terror by Webster Tarpley. On one flight I even gave out a disc and found a convert I think (turns out he was a lawyer who worked on the 2000 Gore recount in Florida though so it didn't take much convincing! :-0) I hope all of you will read it! --- What a fantastic analysis and historical context for understanding the current crisis. In some strange way it is helpful to learn how multi-generational this predicament is. That is --- we can trace the tentacles of the (modern version of this) cabal back to the Kennedy era. I think by shedding light on this history we can help draw in more senior citizens to better awareness, i.e., it's not "that was then this is now" but "that was then, and it's still here now." Anyway, Tarpley has an outstanding method for portraying the historical precedents, patterns, tricks and diversions of the secret government so I hope you will give it a good read. See you soon! ~Ginny ~
