Michael Moore Faces U.S. Treasury Probe

Thursday May 10 5:27 AM ET

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore is under investigation by the U.S. Treasury Department for taking ailing Sept. 11 rescue workers to Cuba for a segment in his upcoming health-care documentary "Sicko," The Associated Press has learned.

The investigation provides another contentious lead-in for a provocative film by Moore, a fierce critic of President Bush. In the past, Moore's adversaries have fanned publicity that helped the filmmaker create a new brand of opinionated blockbuster documentary.

"Sicko" promises to take the health-care industry to task the way Moore confronted America's passion for guns in "Bowling for Columbine" and skewered Bush over his handling of Sept. 11 in "Fahrenheit 9/11."

The Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control notified Moore in a letter dated May 2 that it was conducting a civil investigation for possible violations of the U.S. trade embargo restricting travel to Cuba. A copy of the letter was obtained Tuesday by the AP.

It's been over a day and ABC News Message Boards has NOT deleted my thread "John Edwards asked about WTC 7"! HELP!

Here is the location of the thread: http://forums.abcnews.go.com/n/pfx/forum.aspx?tsn=25&nav=messages&webtag=ABCPolitics&tid=176287

I was sure it was going to get deleted when I set it up yesterday, but there it is even today!

Most of the people responding are clearly in line with the OCT. And I'm the only one holding the fort.

Admittedly, the moderators have been editing the thread as they completely deleted the original post made by me with the link to the actual video of Edwards speaking about WTC 7. And they also deleted my amazon.com link to David Ray Griffin's book "Debunking 9/11 Debunking". But so far the thread looks like it will survive another yet another daily cycle!

THIS IS GREAT NEWS! It shows the ABC News Message Boards are finally becoming more tolerant of the subject of WTC 7, which they definitely were not before:

Study links lung disease to WTC work

By AMY WESTFELDT, Associated Press WriterTue May 8, 9:40 PM ET

Rescue workers and firefighters contracted a serious lung-scarring disease called sarcoidosis at a much higher rate after the Sept. 11 attacks than before, said a study that is the first to link the disease to exposure to toxic dust at ground zero.

The study, published by nine doctors including the medical officer monitoring city firefighters, Dr. David Prezant, found that firefighters and rescue workers contracted sarcoidosis in the year after Sept. 11, 2001, at a rate more than five times higher than the years before the attacks.

Unlike previous studies that have linked exposure to the toxic dust cloud that enveloped lower Manhattan after the World Trade Center's collapse to many different respiratory illnesses, this study zeros in on one disease.

WTC7: Complaint for Injunctive and Declaratory Relief filed

THE WTC7: Complaint for Injunction and Declaratory Relief has been filed in United States District Court Southern District of New York!

May 8, 2007 – On February 28, 2007 I issued a Request for Correction to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). As of today, NIST has not responded. Yesterday, Attorney Jerry Leaphart of Jerry Leaphart & Associates (Danbury, CT) filed a Complaint for Injunctive and Declaratory Relief in United States District Court Southern District of New York on my behalf and on behalf of others similarly situated. The purpose of both the Request for Correction and this recent legal action is to stop the direction the government is heading regarding its final report on how World Trade Center Seven collapsed in 6.6 seconds on September 11, 2001.

CANCER CLAIMS 9/11 COP

By PERRY CHIARAMONTE and MURRAY WEISS

May 8, 2007 -- A detective on Mayor Bloomberg's security detail died yesterday of cancer - an illness his family and union officials believe can be traced to his work in the toxic debris at Ground Zero after 9/11.

Detective Kevin Hawkins, 42, died at 2 a.m. at the hospice unit of Calvary Hospital in The Bronx, said Vic Cipulla, vice president of the Detectives Endowment Association.

He'd been diagnosed with kidney cancer in September.

Cipulla said Hawkins and his family had filed a claim that would seek verification that his illness was in the line of duty, making him eligible for a disability pension.

"Members have come down with various forms of cancer and there are many still to come," he said.

Yesterday, Bill O'Reilly was in a lather over a Rasmussen Poll that found 22% of American voters (35% of Democrats) who believe President Bush knew about 9/11 before it happened.

It was "madness," I tellya. "Madness," declared the no-spinster. How could this have happened? It could only be one thing. Well, actually a couple things that are behind pretty much anything Bill finds an opposing point of view....

THE EVIL DEMAGOGUES OF THE FAR LEFT

....or who Bill knows as George Soros, the bastard who funded dissidents fighting to end communist rule in the Soviet Union. It is Soros, says Bill, who funds the hateful, smear-sites, which Bill knows as Mediamatters.org - the "notorious" media oversight website which provides unedited transcripts and sound of many of Bill's comments for free. Free and unedited, y'hear! How damn un-American can you get?!

Americans Review Bush Knowledge of 9/11

May 8, 2007

(Angus Reid Global Monitor) - Most people in the United States are certain that their president was not aware the country would be attacked by a terrorist organization in 2001, according to a poll by Rasmussen Reports. 55 per cent of respondents think George W. Bush did not know about the 9/11 attacks in advance, while 22 per cent believe he did.

Al-Qaeda operatives hijacked and crashed four airplanes on Sept. 11, 2001, killing nearly 3,000 people. The 9/11 Commission and a joint congressional inquiry into the attacks described in their report—released on Jul. 22, 2004—how the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) had received vague warnings of potential attacks throughout 2001. The document states that, as the year began, the CIA started getting "frequent but fragmentary" threat reports. Among other warnings, the intelligence community sent out a March 2001 terror threat advisory about a heightened threat of Sunni extremist attacks against U.S. facilities, personnel and other interests.

Alexander Cockburn's climate change adventure
The Nation columnist goes through the global warming looking glass, and comes out looking like a 9/11 "truther."

Andrew Leonard

May. 04, 2007 | The dose of Alexander Cockburn's global warming skepticism included in the recent special issue of the Nation on Cuba (and available in full from ZNet) elicited immediate derision in the enviroblogosphere. But no single rebuttal has been as amusing as the one by George Monbiot, the environmental bomb-throwing columnist for the Guardian, who, with all the precision and attention to detail of a brain surgeon, demonstrates how Cockburn has neatly relegated himself to a loony bin full of conspiracy theorists who look remarkably similar to people Cockburn has previously ridiculed. It's simply too good not to pass along, and thanks much to Grist for bringing it to our attention.

My Experience Attending the April 14-15, 2007 PNACitizen Event “Rebuilding America’s Senses: Exposing False-Flag Terrorism to Prevent a New 9/11"

By Eloy Gonzalez II

On Saturday, April 14, 2007, I and my 911 truth activist friend, Leo Krayola, drove to Austin, TX, to attend the Project for a New American Citizen (PNACitizen) sponsored event entitled “Rebuilding America’s Senses: Exposing False-Flag Terrorism to Prevent a New 9/11" (April 14-15, 2007).

It was a long but uneventful drive. We intended to get there early but due to some last minute financial difficulties, we got off to a late start. Fortunately, we had several 911 Visibility and Alex Jones radio presentations burned to CD which kept us company along the way.

Leo, Rosie make Time's most influential

Heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprio and envelope-pushers Rosie O'Donnell and Sacha Baron Cohen are among the entertainment newsmakers on Time magazine's list of 100 people who shape the world.

The list of 100 most influential, on newsstands Friday, also includes Queen Elizabeth II, presidential hopefuls Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama (news, bio, voting record), YouTube founders Steve Chen and Chad Hurley, director Martin Scorsese and model Kate Moss. It does not include President Bush.

In a piece she wrote for the magazine, Barbara Walters, the creator of "The View," had kind words to say about O'Donnell, who announced last week she was leaving the ABC talk show in June because she and the network couldn't agree on a new contract.

"And so, last September, we began a thrilling roller-coaster ride," Walters wrote. "We followed Rosie's passion and compassion, her feuds and fearlessness, her humanity and humor."

Walters said she and O'Donnell "remain respectful and affectionate friends."

Mercury Unveils Four New Titles for MIP TV and MIP DOC -- Including 9/11 MYSTERIES!

27/03/07 Mercury Unveils Four New Titles for MIP TV and MIP DOC.

International distributor MercuryMedia will be showcasing four new documentary titles at MIP TV and Mip Doc in April 2007.

9/11 MYSTERIES presents an argument suggesting that the events of 9/11 were part of a deliberate hoax, designed to provide the pretext for the perpetual War on Terror. With compelling evidence pointing towards the wholesale demolition of the towers, In the Wake Productions’ ‘9/11 Mysteries’ draws some very disturbing conclusions about the real events of that tragic day.

ORWELL ROLLS IN HIS GRAVE, 105 minutes - Sag Harbour Basement, examines the one subject the American media doesn’t discuss – itself. The film asserts that mainstream American media are no longer the voice of American freedom. Instead, they're part of a repressive political power structure sharing disturbing parallels with Orwell’s dystopian vision. This is a disturbing expose of the manipulation of the media by America's power brokers.

AIA 2007 Convention in San Antonio, TX on May 3-5, 2007

This looks like an event that definitely should be attended by as many 9/11 Truthers and members of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth (http://ae911truth.org/) as possible.

AIA 2007 conference in San Antonio, TX: http://www.aiaconvention.com/aia_splash/2007/index.html

My 9/11 truth activist friend and former 2006 Congressional District 28 candidate, Ron Avery (http://www.ronavery.us/), made me aware of this American Institute of Architects (AIA) conference which is scheduled to have quite a few architects and structural engineers in attendance, including Al Gore as one of several important keynote speakers.

Ron Avery plans to distribute flyers at the conference describing why architects and structural engineers should be outraged at the suggestion that such well-constructed and stable buildings as WTC 1, 2, & 7 were in actuality, as the 9/11 attacks supposedly show, weak and poorly-designed.

He also plans to exhibit his model of the WTC complex which he has been working on for quite a few years:

How police and MI5 foiled 'Britain's 9/11'
The fertiliser bomb plot to blow up Bluewater shopping centre, the Ministry of Sound nightclub and utilities, which ended in the conviction of five men

Nicola Woolcock of The Times

John Stone, a salesman at Bodle Brothers agricultural merchants, was bemused by the bizarre request. The flashy young man who had arrived in a customised Audi, rap music blaring, had asked for 600kg of ammonium nitrate fertiliser for his allotment.

It was winter, thought Mr Stone, and the order was enough to cover five football pitches. “What do you want all that for?” he asked sarcastically. “Are you planning a bomb attack?”

Unwittingly, he had hit on the truth. The fertiliser was to be used by a terrorist cell of mainly British-born Muslim men to build a huge bomb. The group had discussed attacking the Ministry of Sound nightclub, Bluewater shopping centre, a train, a pub and a list of synagogues.

Anthony Garcia was chosen to buy the fertiliser because he had paler skin than the others.
