Nearly Completed High-Rise Collapses in Shanghai [verses 911 WTC 7 Collapse]

A 13-storey residential building under construction in Shanghai collapsed on Saturday, killing one worker and highlighting the dangers of shoddy building in fast-urbanising China.

The building, in the outskirts of the city, collapsed at around 6 a.m. (2200 GMT), with one construction worker killed, the official Xinhua news agency reported.


Gee, for a "shoddy building" it's a wonder it didn't DISINTEGRATE into thousands of bits like World Trade Centre 7 on 911:

Of course subsequent independent investigation proved that high tech explosives were used to bring down all WTC buildings on 911. September 11 was an inside job.

In Iran, Confusion Surrounds Neda's Death

New revelations about the death of Neda Aqa-Soltan, who became a symbol of post-election street rallies in Iran, begin surface.

Neda, 26, became an international icon in recent days after graphic videos of her death grabbed the attention of world media outlets.
The claims have added to the confusion already surrounding the shooting, which has been blamed upon Iranian security forces by the Western media hype.

Her death first became suspicious after revelations that she was killed by a small caliber pistol -- a weapon that is not used by Iranian security forces.


All stories coming out of Iran are to be questioned.

We know that certain western intelligence agencies have been trying to undermine the Iranian regime for a number of years. We know that the CIA intended to spend, or has spent, somewhere in the order of 400 million in efforts to instigate unrest. Similarly you would expect the current regime in Iran to deny its involvement in any atrocities. On the balance of the evidence here you must ask which of these two groups is likely to be lying about this shooting. The Iranian authorities or (potentially "tainted") western media reports.

Without further evidence, I think it reasonable to conclude that Neda was well away from the protests and security forces when she was shot and that wold be unlikely that the police or militia forces would simply kill her without some level of provocation. I smell a rat.

The Evidence of Thermitic Pyrotechnics [High Tech Explosives] in the WTC Made Simple

The scientific paper Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe provides, quite simply, proof that explosives were used in the destruction of the Twin Towers. Specifically, the paper positively identifies an advanced engineered pyrotechnic material in each of several samples of dust from the destroyed skyscrapers, in the form of tiny chips having red and gray sides and sharing a very specific three-dimensional structure, chemical composition, and ignition behavior.

The basis and validity of this identification can be grasped quickly by anyone with a working knowledge of physics and chemistry. They need only read the paper's one-page conclusion, and perhaps its section describing the provenance of the dust samples.

But what of the reader whose strong suit isn't the hard sciences? Does one have to be an expert to understand the findings and evaluate the many claims thrown up by "debunkers" to dismiss those findings? Fortunately, the answer is no.


Remember exposing the truth about 911 will stop the War on Terror and shake up the world as we know it. Things can, and will, change.

Bilderberg 2009 Intel Already Proving Accurate

Observers of the annual elitist confab known as Bilderberg have long known that plans discussed at the conference quickly become reality. In 2002, Bilderberg researcher Jim Tucker correctly predicted that the Iraq war would start in March 2003 (not late 2002, as many were predicting at the time). In 2006, Daniel Estulin correctly forecast the popping of the housing bubble and subsequent economic crash, a possibility that most talking heads in the corporate media were laughing at at the time. In 2008, Tucker forecast a dramatic drop in oil prices while most analysts were fretting about the possibility of $200 a barrel oil. Tucker and Estulin have proven so stunningly accurate in their predictions not because they have a crystal ball, but because they have sources inside the Bilderberg Group and other organizations where financial oligarchs and their political puppets make decisions about our geopolitical future.

2009 is not even half over, but it seems the forecasts made by both Estulin and Tucker based on their 2009 Bilderberg sources are already proving to be accurate. In a phone interview conducted as this year’s conference was getting underway in Greece, Daniel Estulin warned The Corbett Report that the powers that be were preparing to run up the stock market one final time in order to draw the masses back into investing before crashing the market. Now, a worrying new report suggests that this is precisely the case as corporate executives start ditching their stocks at a rate not seen in years.


The big question is how much control of the upcoming disaster do these groups really have ? Regardless, I think it would be prudent to plan for big trouble because the US economy is set to degrade anyway, all things considered. Expect the worst and hope for the best. And remember, the big corporations NEVER had your best interests in mind.

The article goes on to say that we might have until September until the rug is pulled from under our feet.

'If I didn't Confess to 7/7 Bombings MI5 Officers would Rape my Wife,' Claims Torture Victim

A British man spoke publicly for the first time yesterday to accuse MI5 officers of forcing him to confess to masterminding the July 7 bombings.

Jamil Rahman claims UK security officers were behind his arrest in 2005 in Bangladesh.
He says he was beaten repeatedly by local officials who also threatened to rape him and his wife.

Mr Rahman, who is suing the Home Office, said a pair of MI5 officers who attended his torture and interrogation would leave the room while he was beaten.

He claims when he told the pair he had been tortured they merely answered: 'They haven't done a very good job on you.'

Mr Rahman told the BBC: 'They were questioning me on the July 7 bombings, showing me pictures of the bombers.

'They showed me maps, terrains ... they asked me to draw things out and write names next to pictures.

'They threatened my family. They go to me, "In the UK, gas leaks happen, if your family house had a gas leak and everyone got burnt, there's no problems, we can do that easily".'

He says he eventually made a false confession of involvement in the July 7 bomb plots.


A confession is not proof of guilt unless the individual can provide information only one of the perpetrators would know. I highly recommend watching this You Tube clip: 7/7 Mind the Gap. From the video it seems that 7/7 was an inside job. At the very least the authorities ARE lying about important details concerning these events.

Dodgy: Obama Claims CIA Involvement In Iran “Patently False”

President Barack Obama was forced to address accusations that the CIA was involved in fomenting the post-election riots in Iran during his White House press conference yesterday, claiming the allegations were “patently false,” despite the fact that the U.S. government publicly gave the CIA approval to undertake a destabilization campaign in Iran more than two years ago.

“There are reports suggesting that the CIA is behind all this - all of which is patently false but it gives you a sense of the narrative that the Iranian government would love to play into,” said Obama.

CIA involvement in Iran is not a “narrative” manufactured by the Iranian government, as Obama well knows.

As we highlighted in our report earlier this week, evidence of U.S. intelligence meddling in Iran is widespread, which is no surprise considering the fact that the U.S. all but announced they would pursue a destabilization campaign in Iran years ago.

In May 2007, the London Telegraph and others revealed that President George W. Bush had “Given the CIA approval to launch covert “black” operations to achieve regime change in Iran.”


To say that the CIA has not involved itself with the internal affairs of Iran is ridiculous.

Remember also that for numerous years the Bush Administration tried to claim there was evidence of Iranian involvement in Iraq during the insurgency yet not one shred of evidence was ever produced. Efforts to undermine the country have been on going for quite some time.

While one can question the level of democracy in Iran (although it appears likely that Ahmedinejad did win despite any ballot tampering efforts that could have boosted his count) to say that the CIA is not meddling is just plain wrong.

I recommend reading the rest of the article for a run down of the CIA dirty tricks being carried out in country.

US Supreme Court Refuses to Hear Appeal by Former CIA Operative

A lawsuit by former CIA operative Valerie Plame against former Bush administration officials will not be revived by the US supreme court.

Last year a lower court tossed out the lawsuit filed by Plame and her husband, former ambassador Joseph Wilson, which accused Dick Cheney and former top Bush officials of leaking Plame's identity to the media in 2003. Wilson and Plame argued the move violated their constitutional rights.

The US court of appeals said the lawsuit didn't meet legal standards for constitutional claims because part of the suit is based on alleged violations of the Privacy Act, a law that does not cover the president or the vice-president's offices.

Former Bush officials Karl Rove, I Lewis "Scooter" Libby and Richard Armitage were named in the lawsuit. Armitage admitted to being the source of a column by conservative writer Robert Novak that identified Plame as a CIA operative. The column appeared shortly after Wilson wrote an opinion piece in the New York Times questioning a claim by Bush that Niger sold uranium yellowcake to Iraq. Rove also talked to the media about Plame.


Rather than a violation of privacy, the outing of Plame, a covert operative, during a time of War (if you could prove legally that the US was at War), is tantamount to an act of treason. Part of Plame's mission was to monitor nuclear weapons proliferation- activities that would have involved parties considered hostile to the National Interest of the USA. By deliberately exposing her as a CIA operative the perpetrators have aided the enemies of the United States.

Furthermore, the reason she was outed was to "get at" her husband, former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, to discredit his claims that false WMD evidence was being used as an excuse to attack Iraq. In Vincent Bugliosi's book, the Prosecution of George W Bush for Murder, Bugliosi argues that criminal charges should be made against the former President for leading the US into an unnecessary war. Bush and his neocon cronies effectively murdered US soldiers by sending them into an illegal war under false pretenses.

US prosecutors with real courage MUST act so that these crimes do not go unpunished.

Interview: 9/11 FEMA Videographer at Ground Zero goes Public

Voltaire Network: What are your suspicions based on?

Kurt Sonnenfeld: There were many things, in hindsight, that were disturbing at Ground Zero. It was odd to me that I was dispatched to go to New York even before the second plane hit the South Tower, while the media was still reporting only that a “small plane” had collided with the North Tower — far too small of a catastrophe at that point to involve FEMA . FEMA was mobilized within minutes, whereas it took ten days for it to deploy to New Orleans to respond to Hurricane Katrina, even with abundant advance warning! It was odd to me that all cameras were so fiercely prohibited within the secured perimeter of Ground Zero, that the entire area was declared a crime scene and yet the “evidence” within that crime scene was so rapidly removed and destroyed. And then it was very odd to me when I learned that FEMA and several other federal agencies had already moved into position at their command center at Pier 92 on September 10th, one day before the attacks!

We are asked to believe that all four of the “indestructible” black boxes of the two jets that struck the twin towers were never found because they were completely vaporized, yet I have footage of the rubber wheels of the landing gear nearly undamaged, as well as the seats, parts of the fuselage and a jet turbine that were absolutely not vaporized. This being said, I do find it rather odd that such objects could have survived fairly intact the type of destruction that turned most of the Twin Towers into thin dust. And I definitely harbor some doubts about the authenticity of the “jet” turbine, far too small to have come from one of the Boeings!

What happened with Building 7 is incredibly suspicious. I have video that shows how curiously small the rubble pile was, and how the buildings to either side were untouched by Building Seven when it collapsed. It had not been hit by an airplane; it had suffered only minor injuries when the Twin Towers collapsed, and there were only small fires on a couple of floors. There’s no way that building could have imploded the way it did without controlled demolition. Yet the collapse of Building 7 was hardly mentioned by the mainstream media and suspiciously ignored by the 911 Commission.


This guy, who is living in exile in Argentina, needs to send out multiple copies of the video tapes he has kept to independent 911 truth group so that everyone can view them online. More evidence of the physical "anomalies" seen at ground zero may be present which would add to the substantial forensic evidence proving the 911 attacks were an inside job.

Further in the interview Sonnenfeld mentions the empty vault discovered in the rubble, that:
Building Six was evacuated within twelve minutes after the first airplane struck the North Tower. The streets were immediately clogged with fire trucks, police cars and blocked traffic, and the vault was large enough, 15 meters by 15 meters by my estimate, to necessitate at least a big truck to carry out its contents. And after the towers fell and destroyed most of the parking level, a mission to recover the contents of the vault would have been impossible. The vault had to have been emptied before the attack.

The Four Reasons the Mainstream Media Is Worthless

There are four reasons that the mainstream media is worthless.

1. Self-Censorship by Journalists

Initially, there is tremendous self-censorship by journalists.

For example, several months after 9/11, famed news anchor Dan Rather told the BBC that American reporters were practicing "a form of self-censorship":

"there was a time in South Africa that people would put flaming tires around peoples' necks if they dissented. And in some ways the fear is that you will be necklaced here, you will have a flaming tire of lack of patriotism put around your neck. Now it is that fear that keeps journalists from asking the toughest of the tough questions.... And again, I am humbled to say, I do not except myself from this criticism.

"What we are talking about here - whether one wants to recognise it or not, or call it by its proper name or not - is a form of self-censorship."


I highly recommend reading the complete article at the link.

Yes indeed, when it comes to the most important issues of our times, the mainstream media is almost a complete waste of time. Thankfully we have the internet and ourselves to rely upon in order to get the truth out.

And it is vitally important to inform the population about false flag terror, rigged elections, corrupt government etc, so that action can be taken against such oppression. The people must be told what is happening so they are aware of the real danger. If we can identify the real enemy then we can plan to stop the rot.

In the case of the mainstream media, either they will be forced to follow the stories covered online or they will become irrelevant.

Obama Now Resembles Bush

Certainly, some differences exist.

The Obama administration, for instance, has released documents on global warming from the Council on Environmental Quality that the Bush administration sought to suppress. Some questions, such as access to White House visitor logs, remain a work in progress.

On policies that are at the heart of presidential power and prerogatives, however, this administration's legal arguments have blended into the other. The persistence can reflect everything from institutional momentum and a quest for continuity to the clout of career employees.
The Bush White House sought to keep e-mails secret. The Obama White House has followed suit. The Bush White House sought to keep visitor logs secret. The Obama White House, so far, takes the same view.

Petaluma, Calif., resident Carolyn Jewel and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a legal activist group, sued the Bush administration over warrantless wiretaps. The Bush administration said that the lawsuit endangered national security. The Obama administration now agrees.


Some relatively superficial things have changed, but any changes that will focus attention on US officials that have acted criminally, are being resisted.

At the very top of the US political tree the "anointed" leaders are not beholden to the will of the people but to the will of the corporations and other elite groups who put them in these positions of power. You can't get into the top job without money. As a consequence Washington IS run by special interest groups who help "their" candidate get elected. This situation cannot be allowed to continue.

Call for Public Inquiry Into 7/7 From Former Head of Counter-Terrorism

An independent public inquiry should be held into how suicide terrorists were able to carry out the July 7 bombings, Scotland Yard’s former head of counter-terrorism says.

Andy Hayman, who was Assistant Commissioner for Special Operations at the time of the bombings in 2005, is the first figure from the security establishment to break ranks and call for an open inquiry.
“There has been no overview, no pulling together of each strand of review, no one can be sure if key issues have been missed.”

Survivors of the July 7 bombings and families of the victims are taking High Court action over the refusal to grant them an independent inquiry.

The key issue for any inquiry would be why Khan, 30, who had been photographed, followed and bugged by surveillance officers because of his links with known terrorists, was left free to carry out the attacks.

The reason the Government and security heads have been reluctant to launch a full public inquiry, as opposed to the closed door whitewash they just completed, is because a few corrupt people running things at the top know the attacks were an inside job. The rest of the bureaucratic apparatus is simply following orders and probably assuming that an inquiry will reveal embarrassing incompetence on the part of the Government.

HOWEVER, the evidence is clear that the attacks of 7/7 were staged events. From this video we find amazing sets of co-incidences, like the bomb terror drills at ALL the stations which were hit, and physical impossibilities, like the terrorists catching a train that was cancelled. 7/7 was an Inside Job.

New Revelations About The Torture Of Ibn al-Shaykh al-Libi

Since the story first emerged last month that Ibn al-Shaykh al-Libi (whose real name was Ali Abdul Hamid al-Fakheri) had died in a Libyan prison, speculation has been rife that the Libyan newspaper Oea, which claimed that he had died by committing suicide, was covering up the fact that he had actually been murdered.

Once the Bush administration?s most famous "ghost prisoner," al-Libi had been the emir of the Khaldan training camp in Afghanistan, but his notoriety stemmed not from his own activities, but from the fact that, after his capture in December 2001, he was rendered by the CIA to Egypt, where, under torture, he made a false confession that two al-Qaeda operatives had been receiving information from Saddam Hussein about the use of chemical and biological weapons, which was subsequently used to justify the invasion of Iraq in March 2003.


Unverified torture confessions do not constitute good evidence of WMDs. Furthermore, we know from the declassified October 2002 Nation Intelligence Estimate, that the US spy agencies concluded that Saddam's regime did not pose an imminent threat. The evidence for Iraqi WMD operations was known to be unconfirmed and unreliable. This conclusion runs in stark contrast to what the White House neocons were telling the world.

All the justifications used for the attack on Iraq at the time were based upon lies. Now one of the elements of this web of lies has been silenced. Regardless, there is still plenty of evidence to launch War Crimes charges against US leaders who launched an unnecessary war that has killed many hundreds of thousands of innocent people.

At present there is scant wealth creation occurring in the USA - not enough to balance the trade deficit and create the high paying jobs needed to fund a recovery. And because the US Government debt is already enormous, any further bailouts to prop up the economy will likely lead to further trouble. The declines will continue.

The science showing that 911 was an inside job speaks for itself. This is why so many academics and professionals are signing up with the 911 truth movement. This is excellent strategy, to simply hand over the scientific material and ask that the targeted person review it.

Housing is Bad Enough, But Wait — It'll Get Worse

If you think the housing slump can't get much worse, Martin Feldstein thinks that both home prices and the broader economy can — and very likely will — get a whole lot worse.

The Harvard University professor and former chief economic adviser to Ronald Reagan isn't part of the crowd that continually forecasts doom. For two decades, he's headed the National Bureau of Economic Research, which officially determines when U.S. recessions begin and end.

So when he spoke on Monday night at the annual dinner of the National Economists Club, a gathering of like-minded wonks, Feldstein's grim calculations were noteworthy.

"There are now 12 million homes in the United States with a loan-to-value ratio greater than 100 percent. That's one mortgage in four. The aggregate amount of that is some $2 trillion," said Feldstein. "If you look at the median (midpoint) loan-to-value ratio in that 12 million group of underwater mortgages — mortgages with negative equity — the median loan-to-value ratio is 120 percent."

That means about 25 percent of all U.S. mortgages are exceed the value of the homes the mortgages are financing. In the case of half the homes that are underwater, homeowners are paying a mortgage that's now 20 percent higher than the value of the home.

That's bad — but it's likely to get worse.

Accused 9/11 Mastermind: ‘I Make Up Stories’

In potentially another blow to advocates of torture and harsh interrogation, transcripts released yesterday show that alleged 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed says he made up stories to appease his interrogators.

”I make up stories,” Mohammed is quoted as saying in his 2007 Gitmo hearing. The alleged 9/11 plotter claimed to have taken part in at least 29 terrorist plots.

Mohammed says he told his questioners he didn’t know the location of Osama Bin Laden, and was tortured as a result.

“”Where is he? I don’t know,” Mohammed said. ‘Then he torture me. Then I said, ‘Yes, he is in this area or this is al Qaeda which I don’t know him.’ I said no, they torture me.’”

The innocent, under torture, will confess to anything. Also, by itself, a confession is not proof of guilt unless the person freely offers information that only the perpetrators would know.

It is likely that Mr Mohammed had absolutely nothing to do with 911. This is because there is physical evidence showing the operation was an inside job. The idea that Al Qaeda "did it" is a lie.

Pre-election Iranian Poll Showed Ahmadinejad Support

A poll of Iran's electorate three weeks before its election showed President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad leading by a 2-to-1 ratio, greater than the announced results of the contested vote, the pollsters said on Monday.

The poll showed Ahmadinejad's disputed victory, which has sparked riots and demonstrations since it was announced, might reflect the will of the people and "is not the product of widespread fraud," pollsters Ken Ballen and Patrick Doherty said in a column in The Washington Post.

Whereas in the USA, in 2004, the pre-election polls showed John Kerry convincingly ahead of George W. Bush. Even the exit polls showed Kerry winning by millions of votes. However, the official results, for the first time ever, bucked the poll data and had Mr Bush "win".

Although there is legitimate, and passionate support for the opposition leader Mr Mousavi, there is little evidence to support the contention that the Iranian elections there were rigged.

The Truth Behind Depleted Uranium (DU) Contamination and Its Usage

It is the type of testing carried out by UN, WHO and other Government agencies that gives rise to grave concerns as to the authenticity of the resultant reports especially in regard to the medical aspects of the tests. As I have previously reported, one method used is the ICRP Biokinetic Model which primarily is used in conjunction with "Heavy Dose of Radiation Contamination" It is totally Unsuitable for testing "Low Level Radiation" especially in cases of inhalation and ingestion by humans.

Major failings of all those involved in such investigations is evident, as well as their use (in some cases) of totally unsuitable or obsolete apparatus. I can repeat this story time and time again, as in the case of Afghanistan and Lebanon but to no avail.

The US, NATO and IDF deny the use of DU in both countries and yet the same evidence still keeps coming to the surface.


Depleted Uranium weapons must be banned immediately. The evidence that they pose serious health risks is overwhelming. The full article here also describes the "clean up" of an ammunition dump explosion in 1991 wherein they treated the debris and soil as if it was toxic waste.

Judge: Ex-Bush Lawyer Can Be Sued Over Torture

A prisoner who says he was tortured while being held for nearly four years as a suspected terrorist can sue former Bush administration lawyer John Yoo for coming up with the legal theories that justified his alleged treatment, a federal judge in San Francisco ruled Friday.

U.S. District Judge Jeffrey White's decision marks the first time a government lawyer has been held potentially responsible for the abuse of detainees.

"Like any other government official, government lawyers are responsible for the foreseeable consequences of their conduct," White said in refusing to dismiss Jose Padilla's lawsuit against Yoo.

Will Torture Probe Target Bush Officials? Top Dem says ’Stand By’

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said on MSNBC that while the Senate has indeed been examining finer details of CIA torture authorized by the Bush administration, there are “chain of command” issues still to come.

“So, I guess, stand by,” he told Rachel Maddow on Thursday night.

“We know [the intelligence committee is getting] a comprehensive look at what happened to those high-value detainees,” said Maddow. “Does it only look at what the CIA did, or will it look at the chain of command? Whether or not instruction came from the White House, the Office of the Vice President [...] ?”

“We’re not at the stage yet in the investigation, where those chain of command issues are yet raised,” he said.


If the investigation "fails" to bring charges against those higher up in the chain of command --ie. the people who authorised the torture (and admitted doing so) like Bush, Cheney and Rice -- then you can be sure there is a cover up in progress. Consequently, anyone covering up a crime, and obstructing justice should then be charged for doing so. The evidence that command decisions led directly to the torture is obvious. Criminal charges must be laid.

9/11 Coincidences (Part Twelve) - GUILTY DEMEANOR

Although I prefer to focus on the hard physical evidence showing that 911 WAS an inside job, some of the behaviour in this clip is very curious indeed. Check it out.

Dennis Kucinich: Who Are These People?

A good 1 minute speech ! In response, I must say that elected officials are NOT there to protect the wealth of the American people but rather to protect the big corporations and special interest groups that pay their way. This corrupt system must be challenged at every turn.

Pentagon Won’t Name 60 percent of Detainees it Says Returned to Terrorism

According to an analysis by a New Jersey law professor, the Pentagon’s recent survey alleging that one in seven Guantanamo Bay prisoners return to terrorism is deeply flawed.

His analysis also reveals the Pentagon has refused to identify 60 percent of the men they claim have returned to terrorism, saying the information is classified.

The latest Pentagon recidivism analysis documents 74 recidivists, but lacks 45 names, adding that of the 29 names given, only half are labeled “confirmed” recidivists. Seton Hall University Professor Mark Denbeaux, who wrote the report, also alleges the analysis includes men who were never held at Guantanamo

[Hosting courtesy of Resisting the New World Order. ]

I recommend skipping past the advertising which uses up substantial chunks of the air time. Gage does pretty well by sticking to the physical evidence of the World Trade Centre controlled demolitions. The scientific proof is exceedingly obvious and overwhelming. A new investigation is vital. Let everyone know about this information so that there can be no barrier of ignorance stopping a new criminal inquiry.

The following excerpt is taken from the Coast to Coast webpage and briefly addresses the key physical proof that the Towers MUST have been taken down using high tech explosives. During the interview Mr Gage also points to other proofs like the Molten Steel, the video footage, and reports of explosions:

Evidence for controlled demolition of the Towers comes from a study by Dr. Steven Jones of the pulverized dust that surrounded the area after the collapse. The material was found to have the chemical signature of thermite, created through nanotechnology, something that military departments have been experimenting with in laboratories. Gage speculated that this thermite might have been planted in the Tower's elevator columns during a lengthy modernization project that was begun 9 months prior to 9-11. Because of this and other evidence, he is calling for a new and independent investigation to uncover the full truth about the events surrounding 9-11. He recommended signing the AE911 Truth Petition and visiting the NYC Coalition for Accountability Now site.

9/11: We Will Never Forget

We should never rest until the truth about the 911 attacks is known by all. If nothing happens then we face further staged attacks. I am personally not looking forward to bio warfare or suitcase nuke incidents blamed on Al Qaeda.

WE really need to put an end to these lethal shenanigans being played by corrupted elements of the controlling elite. Informing the public is the vital first step.

Note that the video links and documentary film references appearing at the end of this video clip are all first class. The person responsible for this clip is obviously very well grounded. Do yourself a favour and check them out if you are new to the fact that 911 was an inside job.

Max Keiser US$350,000,000,000 TARP Missing!

Disappearing taxpayer money is no laughing matter. If they can't trace where it has gone then who pays it back ? Someone has to pay for it. In this case it'd be written off as a loss vs the Government (ie. the taxpayers !) This reminds me of the missing trillions in the Pentagon budget that was noted right before 911. Once again the taxpayer MUST foot the bill. Eventually all these debts will impact upon the ordinary American. When the Federal Government can no longer raise money from foreign borrowing or by printing money they will have to raise taxes ...

Obama Admin May Permit 9/11 Suspects To Plead Guilty In Capital Cases

A plan under consideration by the Obama administration would permit Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, detainees facing the death penalty to plead guilty without a full trial, it has been reported.

This option would principally be aimed at a group of detainees accused of planning the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks, five people who have already indicated they prefer this resolution of the case, The New York Times said in a story posted late Friday on its Web site.

One advantage of permitting guilty pleas by defendants in the Sept. 11 case would be that the government would not have to expose harsh interrogation techniques during full trials that would otherwise have to be carried out, the Times said.


Did the 5 people who prefered this option do so after being tortured to the point of insanity ?

If there is no trial none of the evidence against the accused will be tested. It will just be taken as a given that the prosecution evidence (the US Government claims) are correct when it comes to the penalty phase. This would be a travesty indeed.

Obama Warns Not to Challenge Official 9/11 Story

So challenging the official 911 story is heresy, regardless of the scientific evidence proving the attacks were an inside job ?

Well, we all know that Copernicus was right ! However, in this case it is MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER to let the public know the truth since we face an endless War on Terror that is killing hundreds of thousands.

We are surely damned if we say nothing.

[Posted at the SpookyWeather blog, June 7th, 2009.]


There exists some extremely disturbing scientific evidence which totally undermines the official 911 story. It does not matter what theories you believe in, the material here speaks for itself:

The picture above shows MOLTEN STEEL being removed from the World Trade Centre rubble pile. However, from all accounts (even the official NISTs report concedes this point) the fires in the WTC buildings were far too weak to cause such melting. Conventional building fires, including ones initiated with aviation kerosene, simply cannot raise the temperature of structural steel to its melting point of around 1300 degrees celsius. According to all the available data, the fires in the Towers could only have reached a maximum temperature of around 650 degrees celsius- yet here we can see steel so hot that it has taken on a yellow look (an observation that indicates the temperature must be between 850-1000 degrees celsius !!).

There are ONLY two ways which would enable this steel to reach such a high temperature.
1. In a blast furnace.
2. From Explosives.
The rubble pile was not a blast furnace.
Therefore one must assume that explosives were the most likely agent.

Furthermore, we have supporting eyewitness testimony from firefighters and civilians which reveals that many of them felt, and were knocked over by, huge explosions occurring in the lower floors of the WTC buildings -far away from the fire zones.

Critically, scientific analysis conducted by physics Professor Steven Jones has uncovered the chemical signature for the explosive THERMATE in multiple samples taken from the WTC steel and dust- proving, without doubt, that explosives were used.

The science here is clear cut. Whatever one thinks about the various theories floating around out there, one thing is certain: The Twin Towers (and Building 7) at the World Trade Centre site were rigged with explosives. Most importantly, such an operation would take many weeks to plan and carry out. Therefore, part of the 911 attacks against the World Trade Centre complex MUST have been an "Inside Job" as Bin Laden's men would not have had the necessary time or access to wire these buildings.

The charade must end. If we are honest with ourselves we must now accept there is damning physical (forensic) evidence that undermines the official story. Certain elements within the US government appear complicit in the attacks of September 11.[1] A new independent criminal investigation must be launched and the phony "war on terror" stopped.

(For a more detailed analysis on the physics of the WTC collapses see Steven Jones' paper: Why Indeed Did the World Trade Center Buildings Completely Collapse? [PDF] and visit Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth, an organisation with over 600 building professionals who agree with these findings.)

UPDATE: In a peer reviewed scientific paper it has been show conclusively that particles of high tech explosives were present all throughout the WTC dust. There is no doubt about it. These buildings WERE destroyed using thermite-type incendiary explosives.

Note: I will continue to post 911 information at this blog, ad infinitum, until we see a proper criminal investigation. Once everyone can see that 911 was an inside job (and be able to openly talk about the crime) then action WILL follow.

9/11 Metastasizing: the Left's Co-Dependency

... how do we explain the shocking backsliding of Obama and his majority party: indefinite detention, torture lite continuing in Gitmo and Bagram, virtual immunity for war criminals, acceptable collateral drone carnage of civilians in Pakistan and Afghanistan, escalation of the disingenuous War on Terror, not to mention the subsidization of our piratical financial class. We are still locked in the shock of 9/11, the sole justification for this endless train of abuses, usurpations, and crimes. To forswear waterboarding would be regression to a perilous “September 10th mentality,” Elizabeth Cheney assures us.

9/11 is the wellspring that keeps on gushing, fueling our fear, barbaric behavior, and coffers of the merchants of death. But if the officially sanctioned narrative of 9/11 is any way deficient—if it is a cover-up of some kind, as many credible Commission staffers, prominent academics, military and intelligence officers, architects and engineers have alleged—then we cannot continue tacitly endorsing it without very grave and perhaps fatal consequences to our republic. To censor all inquiry that reflects critically on that first, very panicked draft of history, and declare any revisionist narrative heresy, surrenders our minds to the perpetual War lobby still feeding on it.
If I have not already committed punishable perfidy here, I now offer no theories, conspiratorial or otherwise, but simply the following citation of officiously endorsed empiricism. As Kos repeats the hackneyed gem in his online Rules: “Extraordinary claims demand extraordinary proof.” Well, here it is:

Firm evidence of nano-thermite residue in four distinct WTC dust samples. From a paper published in the peer-reviewed Open Chemical Physics Journal by dissident physicist Stephen Jones (our own Andrei Sakharov) and eight colleagues (summary here:
http://www.globalresearch.ca/... Jones states it was the most rigorous peer-review he had ever undergone, in a long and distinguished career. So far, none of the dependable debunkers have disputed this research—that would perhaps draw too much undesired attention to it. So what does it mean?

First, it provides an explanation for two anomalies in the Twin Towers’ destruction: the great plumes of pulverized mass at the beginning of the collapse; and the pools of molten metal found in the debris weeks later (kerosene jet fuel fires may weaken steel, but cannot melt it).

People are quick to jump to unwarranted conclusions, but I will keep this safely within the designated free speech zone: no theories straying off limits into how or by whom the nano-thermite was employed on 9/11. But prima facie, it is a national security issue. Nano-thermite, or super-thermite, is a controlled pyrotechnic compound under the International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR). It has to be engineered in a fairly sophisticated lab (like the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, where it was originally synthesized. Or like the distinctive strain of anthrax used in the post 9/11 attacks). If the 19 hijackers and/or unknown confederates somehow acquired or created this devastatingly explosive terrorist weapon (it can be embedded or molded into almost anything, like ceiling tiles, shoes or carry-on luggage), should this not be discussed and investigated? Can our airport scanners detect this stuff? Is there an al-Qaeda nano-technology lab somewhere on the planet? Are we to rely on torture alone to save us from a ticking nano-thermite bomb?


Clearly there needs to be a second investigation into the attacks. Any reasonable person cannot avoid such a conclusion.

Note: The article (above) is an appeal to the quasi mainstream [uniformed] readers of the Daily Kos to take a good look at the scientific proofs that have shown 911 was an inside job.

It is unfortunate, but true, that most leading left commentators have illogically discounted all evidence that refutes the official account.

If NIST and the 911 Commission were not telling us the Truth a New 911 Investigation is Justified.

A great video. We must educate the population with material like this so a new criminal investigation can be launched. When EVERYONE knows about the failures of the official investigations and the physical evidence of explosives at the World Trade Centre then there will be no way that the new investigation will be whitewashed. We will be alert to the dangers of a cover up. A new investigation will be conducted entirely in the public eye.

Sibel Edmonds: Whistleblowers Set to Name Names, Turn Tables on Media, Who've Betrayed Our Trust

We all have been tirelessly screaming about issues related to Congressional leaders abdicating their main responsibility of 'oversight.' We have been outraged for way too long at seeing 'no' accountability whatsoever in many known cases of extreme wrongdoing. I, and many of you, believe that the biggest reason for this was, and still is, the lack of true journalism and media coverage --- which acts as the necessary pressure and catalyst for those spineless politicians on the Hill and in the Executive branch. Or, at least it's supposed to. So, in our book, the MSM have been the main culprit.

Well, here is a chance to turn the tables.

At my new blog,
123 Real Change, I'm happy to present an experimental project, Project Expose MSM, created to provide readers with specific mainstream media blackout and/or misinformation cases based on the documented and credible first-hand experiences of legitimate sources and whistleblowers.123 Real Change is inviting all members of the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition (NSWBC), other active (covert or overt) government whistleblowers, and even reporters themselves, to publish their experiences in regard to their own first-hand dealings with the media, where their legit disclosures were either intentionally censored, blacked out or tainted.

Yes, we will be naming names --- myself included.


The mainstream media is the enemy. We will try to win them over, but plans must also be made to hold them accountable and/or circumvent them.

Bin Laden Criticizes Obama in New Tape

In his audiotape, aired on Al-Jazeera television, bin Laden said Obama has inflamed hatred toward the U.S. by ordering Pakistan to crack down on militants and block Islamic law there.
Al-Jazeera did not say how or when the tape was obtained, and its authenticity could not be immediately verified, though a senior U.S. official told NBC News they have to listen to the Bin Laden tape and are presuming it to be the al-Qaida leader. The offical points out that for all the speculation about bin Laden being alive or dead, "there's never been a fake bin Laden tape."

With every "Bin Laden" message some unnamed US official always states that they "believe" or "presume" the tape to be authentic. Nothing here is ever confirmed officially. Notice the language used. Plus the quote that, "there's never been a fake bin Laden tape" is preposterous.

In actual fact every tape since late 2001 has been faked. Independent analyses show many problems with these recordings, especially the "911 confession" video where we see a short, fat look-a-like, who is right handed, standing in for the sick, left handed and very tall real Osama Bin Laden. Furthermore, OBL was reported to have died sometime during early 2002 at the latest. See this link for a summary of these problems.

And if Bin Laden were alive, then why don't we see nice clear video tape of the man ? After all this is the 21st century and getting a good camera to the "terrorist leader" would not be difficult. Everything we have seen and heard here is a deception designed to prolong the war on Terror.

Dick Cheney has Finally Hit the Bottom of Despicability

On Monday, however, Cheney made sure to blanket the criminally prosecutable blame: "We all approved it," he said, as he continued his propaganda campaign for the declassification of non-existent proof of torture's non-existent effectiveness.

He also blamed the then-head of the counterterrorism program, Richard Clarke, for "obviously miss[ing]" 9/11's warning signs; and, in effect, he blamed CIA director George Tenet for the colossally imbecilic Iraq War: "The prime source of information on the relationship between Iraq and al-Qaeda was George Tenet.... That is not something I made up, that is not something I thought of. That is what the director of central intelligence was telling us."


Mr Cheney is playing a dangerous game here. He's lying his rear end off whilst shifting all blame to everyone else around him. Already we have seen CIA and military people speak out against his claims. It is very likely that we'll get a reaction from others who have had enough of this bluster.

I would very much like to see some anonymous material turn up online revealing an ugly truth that will place Mr Cheney in deep trouble.

Obama Says Iran's Energy Concerns Legitimate

President Barack Obama reiterated that Iran may have some right to nuclear energy _ provided it takes steps to prove its aspirations are peaceful.

In a BBC interview broadcast Tuesday, Obama also restated plans to pursue direct diplomacy with Tehran to encourage it to set aside any ambitions for nuclear weapons it might harbor.

Iran has insisted its nuclear program is aimed at generating electricity. But the U.S. and other Western governments accuse Tehran of seeking atomic weapons.


This is some sensible talk. However, actions speak louder than words. Ditto for all similar statements from this Administration.

The Battle for Belief: A Sociologist’s Research in 9/11 Argumentation

We are at war, and one of the most critical and dangerous frontline is not in Afghanistan, Iraq or Iran. Rather, it is the battleground within the human psyche. Individual and collective minds are waging psychological warfare in what promises to be one of the most intense struggles in American history, if not all of human history. How do we communicate the truth about the events of 9/11 to those who have been deceived by the operation and its cover-up in the media? Are logic, reason, and science enough?

In the "battle for belief", Person A offers truth demonstrating reality while Person B, knowingly or unknowingly, transmits lies and perpetuates myth. At the end of the day, the one with the most credibility wins. This much is supposed by Dr. Mark Jones, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Sociology at Colorado College, who is embarking on a research project to study how both sides of a controversial issue communicate their ideas.


The battle to get inside people's heads, to explain the evidence of the inside job, is primarily an educational endeavor that has to be mixed with psychological strategy. If it was simply a matter of logic, there would be no problem.

The big issue with the audience, the public at large, is that many of them will be fooled by the rhetoric and ridicule put up by adherents of the official conspiracy theory. To combat such an officious wall of certainty some dose of counter ridicule and rhetoric, backed by hard scientific fact, is needed. The difference here is that because our arguments stem from hard truths anyone encouraged to take a second look at the evidence will quickly realise that the official story is completely unsubstantiated. In the end the official lies will not stand up to scrutiny.

[Practical application:] However, regardless of these facts, the wall of opposition in this information war must be taken into consideration so as to form proper counter strategic moves. Negative bodies representing the Government position include: various officials, Government agencies, the Debunkers, members of the public who have been "suckered" by the lies, and the corporate mainstream media that promotes the official 911 story. To combat this posse all "underground" methods must be used. These include Internet posts, independent TV & newspaper stories, emails, advertising, person to person communication, plus massive street action (flyers). The tactic is to hammer the audience with the hard evidence and educate.

Although there is a huge psychological wall of disbelief and a misguided faith in authority to overcome (the big lie syndrome), because the hard evidence of the inside job is so overwhelming, EVERYONE will eventually come to know the truth given time. Justice will be served.

Dow gains 200 points

Stocks rallied Monday, with the Dow gaining 200 points, as investors looked past the bankruptcy of General Motors to focus on upbeat economic reports from around the world.

This rally is a scam. Mike Rivero at Whatreallyhappened.com points out:
Look carefully. The DOW has reshuffled the roster of stocks used to calculate the index. In other words, they are cherry-picking which stocks they use to produce the best results.

Today's DOW is being rigged to offset the effect of the GM bankruptcy, which closes 12 factories and lays off 20,00 auto-workers.

Mr. Obama, Bring Down the War Criminals!

Among several sticky tar babies Bush left Obama the worst are: Guantanamo, torture, capital war crimes! The clock is ticking for Obama. The time for 'good faith' is running out! Unless Obama moves to close Guantanamo now and end the practice of torture while bringing war crimes charges against Bush, Rumsfeld, Cheney et al., he risks being so charged himself!
(a) Offense.— Whoever, whether inside or outside the United States, commits a war crime, in any of the circumstances described in subsection (b), shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for life or any term of years, or both, and if death results to the victim, shall also be subject to the penalty of death.
US Codes, Title 18, Section 2441

This federal law is still on the books! It is still ignored by the office of President of the United States, the office that is empowered by the US Constitution with the authority to enforce and uphold the laws of the United States. Does this basic concept no longer mean anything to the people and, most importantly, to those who are sworn to uphold the law?

The problem for President Obama is that Democrat leaders are involved in some of these crimes. For example, Pelosi and others knew about the torture in 2002 and did nothing. They were also made aware of the illegal nature of the Iraq War and did nothing.

At the highest levels of American politics all the players are tainted by corrupt behaviour. It is up to the people, at lower levels of Government and in the judiciary, to act in accordance with the law and ensure that proper criminal investigations are carried out against all alleged perpetrators.

Teen Infowarriors Fighting For Truth

This sort of street action is the right idea. However, I suggest a mass flyer campaign using tens of thousands of cheap "disposable" papers that focus on one website. Such flyers should be left everywhere, in libraries, shopping malls, police stations, on public transport etc etc. DVDs and stickers are great but they cost more money to produce which limits the distribution. In this case going cheap can be an advantage.

Peter Schiff and Marc Faber on Hyperinflation - Glenn Beck - 05-28-2008

Along with the bailout hyperinflation, which will come as the US dollar collapses, there is also the problem of the fundamental bankruptcy of the American economy as a wealth generating machine. Too much industry has moved overseas leaving too few jobs. A consumer driven system will not work in the long run. The outsourced corporate profits came at the expense of the wealth of the people.
