Summary of Evidence of Controlled Demolition at the World Trade Center

The evidence summarized below proves conclusively that 3 World Trade Center buildings collapsed on 9/11/2001 as the result of controlled demolitions. It makes no attempt to determine why, or to imply by whom. From a scientific standpoint, it is inadvisable to leap to conclusions because there are always scenarios we may not be prepared to imagine. In science, as in life, an open mind is a good thing. It is conceivable that there was a bio-threat airborne in the CIA undercover New York station in Building 7 capable of wiping out 20 million people if it wasn’t immediately neutralized by the use of Thermate. Although that is unlikely, it remains possible and therefore, scientifically, it stands as an unknown, as do many other unknowns.
I rarely visit the Screw Loose Change blog for reasons I'm sure would be obvious to most. However, after following up on a comment here which linked to SLC, I took a moment to skim the front page. On October 26th, Pat Curley posted a link to a video made by the notorious Troy Sexton, aka AlexJonesWrongAgain, of Hurricane, West Virginia. Troy had posted a video on October 26th of his trip to the big city of Cincinnati, OH for Richard Gage's recent presentation there. I assume that Troy notified Curley soon after posting his video since Curley's post was made the very same day. Curley thought highly enough of Troy's pitifully juvenile antics to consider it "good entertainment value," worthy of a blog post at SLC.
"I’ve thought about the unsolicited advice from the Libertarian Party candidate, and he has convinced me to reject my neutral stance in the November election. I’m supporting Chuck Baldwin, the Constitution Party candidate." -- Ron Paul
What Really Happened on 9/11?
Only One Presidential Candidate Asks...
Constitution Party presidential candidate Chuck Baldwin is the only candidate from a FEC- recognized party to challenge the official story of the tragedy of 9-11.
Representing the largest and fastest-growing third party based on voter registration (Ballot Access news), Baldwin joins the growing list of military, scientific and other well-credentialed experts who agree,'the government's account of what happened that day simply does not pass the smell test'.
Baldwin, poised to attract voters who will not cast their votes for either 'Big Box' party candidate in November said, 'All across America voters are telling me, ''I am afraid of Obama and I don't trust McCain'.
Baldwin added, 'More and more people want answers . They want to know about government corruption, our loss of liberties and yes, what really happened on September 11th. The heartache this country endured won't be cured, but it will give us answers to some basic questions about why our security, intelligence and civil defense measures failed and why so many aspects of the government's version have been shown to be lies'.

I don't think that they thought this through very far. I have a funny feeling that they are going to be swamped with video of corrupt public servants doing their thing. Do any of you have video evidence of criminal activity in the New York City area that the NYPD should be interested in investigating? I don't see any reason why professional video evidence can't be offered, too.
The URL for video uploads hasn't been made public yet. Please update this thread as soon as you see NYPD's URL published!
NYPD calls on citizens for amateur video evidence
By Deborah Jian Lee
New Yorkers can soon take a bite out of city crime by uploading video or photo evidence directly to the New York Police Department, in a move welcomed on Thursday by civil rights groups.
"We're putting that technology in place to enable us to do that," said Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, adding that the service will be available soon.
"It's a fact of life," Kelly said. "Everybody has a camera in their telephones. When people can record an event taking place that helps us during an investigation, it's helpful."
Good riddance to a steaming pile of dog excrement.

Florida free-fall sends Giuliani from hero to zero

Giuliani Concedes Florida To McCain
McCain Takes Florida: ‘It’s a Very Significant Boost’
Rudolph Giuliani's plummet from soaring Republican front-runner, to humiliated White House also-ran, ranks as one of the most spectacular flame-outs in US election history.
The hero of the September 11 attacks in 2001, dubbed "America's Mayor," and former mafia scourge splashed around 50 million dollars in his campaign -- but saw his chances slide as soon as first nominating votes were cast.
WSAV - Savannah, Georgia Hilton Head, South Carolina NBC affiliate station.
Stubbs Tower on Bee Road in Savannah came down around 8 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 15, with a series of controlled explosions. 400-500 pounds of explosives were used to create a twenty five foot tall pile of debris from the former fifteen-story low-income housing highrise.

CIA admits it destroyed tapes of interrogations
Staff members of the Sept. 11 commission, which completed its work in 2004, expressed surprise when they were told that interrogation videotapes existed until 2005.
"The commission did formally request material of this kind from all relevant agencies, and the commission was assured that we had received all the material responsive to our request," said Philip D. Zelikow, who served as executive director of the Sept. 11 commission and later as a senior counselor to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
Were these assurances given under oath?

"To know that we had failing radios in 1993 and did virtually nothing until September 11 is shocking to say the least," said Gioia [New York City Councilman Eric Gioia]. "To watch this documentary and see the important questions that were asked and seemingly unanswered and ignored for so many years, it's disturbing."
Giuliani Faces Investigation Of 9/11 Radios
The Huffington Post
November 1, 2007 10:10 AM
In the midst of his presidential candidacy, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani now faces a looming government investigation into his handling of the radios used by firefighters on 9/11.
The investigation, which will examine how the FDNY ended up using faulty equipment during the terrorist attacks and why Giuliani gave a no-bid contract to Motorola for that equipment, has been endorsed by New York City Councilman Eric Gioia, chair of the city's oversight and investigations committee.

Coleman Refuses New Probe; "I don't think there's a new investigation to 9/11 that's really called for"
No matter what the question is, Rudy says 9/11
BY HELEN KENNEDY
DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER
Sunday, October 7th 2007, 4:00 AM
For Rudy Giuliani, 9/11 is the answer. To almost anything, it seems.
After all, it's why America fell in love with him on that darkest of days, when the mayor was the only person on TV reassuring the nation. It's why he's the Republican front-runner for President.
"For me, every day is an anniversary of Sept. 11," he said in Florida last month.
Giuliani wastes no opportunity to bring up 9/11 on the campaign trail. Sometimes, it looks like a stretch.
Here is "Jeopardy, the Giuliani Edition," where 9/11 is always the answer, but the questions may surprise you:
WHY DID YOU FLIP ON GUN CONTROL?
"There are some major intervening events - Sept. 11 - which cast somewhat of a different light on the Second Amendment."
- Giuliani's September speech to the NRA
WHY DID YOU INTERRUPT THAT SPEECH TO TAKE A CALL FROM JUDI?
"Since Sept. 11, most of the time when we get on a plane we talk to each other and just reaffirm the fact that we love each other"
"In another section, entitled "Preparing for Demonstrators," the document makes clear that the intention is to deprive protesters of the right to be seen or heard by the President: "As always, work with the Secret Service and have them ask the local police department to designate a protest area where demonstrators can be placed, preferably not in view of the event site or motorcade route.""
So, they are acting under color of law to deprive American Citizens their UNALIENABLE Rights? Nah! If you think that the government is involved in a scheme to take away your freedom, you are just plain wrong. There is no freedom.

So the truth comes out.
Giuliani Acknowledged Explosions on 9/11, Didn't Believe They Were 'Gas Related'
YouTube | June 26, 2007
This clip is from Fox News on September 11, 2001, and is from a Press Conference given by Mayor Giuliani. In the clip, Mayor Giuliani states that he does not believe gas is responsible for the explosions being reported, and emphasizes that the gas has been turned off.
Former Republican senator wannabe and part-time actor, Fred Thompson, is is set to announce his entering the race for president in 2008 by announcing candidacy in Nashville next week. There can be no doubt that a Thompson presidency would mean business as usual for the war mongers currently in power. In addition, Thompson in the White House would be extremely bad for any expectation of government cooperation from a future executive branch regarding 9/11 Truth. Thompanson's health may very well be an issue, too. Thompson, 64 years old, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma 2 1/2 years ago but has said the cancer is in remission.
The globalists' must be very fearful of Giuliani's continued stagnation in the polls, McCain's increasing irrelevance, and Romney's more than questionable qualifications. The fact that grassroots support for Congressman Ron Paul is showing no signs of abatement in his meteoric rise of support among Americans must scare the bejeezus out of them. Many of Paul's supporters are only just now becoming politically active. In addition, many long-time loyal liberals, who previously would be adamantly opposed to supporting a Republican candidate under any circumstances whatsoever, are finding Paul's message extremely attractive. Though currently of little concern to the globalists' due to her present lead in the polls, Hillary Clinton is increasingly facing an uphill battle to win the hearts of liberals who are stridently against a continued or possibly escalated war in the Middle East. These antiwar liberals have recently shown no hesitation to make Ms. Clinton aware of their sentiment by continuing to boo the senator at recent speeches. I laud their efforts. Dissent is indeed the highest form of patriotism.
Thompson's entering the race is clearly an attempt by the globalists to counter the unbelievable growth in support for a Ron Paul presidency by Americans who represent a wide political spectrum. For the globalists, countering Congressman Paul with Thompson, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, may be an effective way to slow Congressman Paul's runaway freight train of support and ensure that their agenda not be stalled or even derailed entirely.
Kurt Nimmo is reporting that Thompson is now attempting to link Senator Harry Reid and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, both Democrats, to "9/11 “Fringe Anti-American Elements”", despite the documented unwillingness of the vast majority of their party to even be willing to entertain notions contrary to the government's Official Conspiracy Theory (OTC). To me, it appears more that Thompson and the globalists are trying to actually discredit the 9/11 Truth movement by claiming a link between the 9/11 Truth movement and the war-mongering members of the Democratic Party.
"In order to draw attention his way, especially from the blathering ditz-heads over Fox News, Thompson “suggests that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) criticized outgoing Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Peter Pace last week to appeal to ‘fringe’ anti-American elements ‘who think the 9/11 attacks were an inside job,’” writes Think Progress. “Thompson also compares 9/11 conspiracy theories to claims that the war in Iraq was a ’sinister Republican plot.’ He says, ‘Reid has led the attack on the administration, with Nancy Pelosi, charging it lied and tricked America into supporting the war.’ Thompson claims that ‘multiple hearings and investigations into pre-war intelligence findings’ have ‘debunked this paranoid myth,’” the latter an obvious lie, not that the folks watching Fox will catch the drift. Most still believe plots requiring state intelligence services and matrix-like levels of sophistication are hatched by medieval Muslims in remote caves with the assistance of satellite phones, laptops, and kidney dialysis machines."

The Rights guaranteed in the First Amendment are INDIVIDUAL Rights. Of this there is no question, unless it is by tyrants. That means that each and every one of us INDIVIDUALLY enjoys the UNALIENABLE Right to Freedom of the Press. Create your own blog, web site, newsletter, whatever. Post your work as news. Put your face and name to it. MAKE YOUR OWN FANCY PRESS CARD. Stand on you Rights, like Matt Lapecek did in New Hampshire last week and sue them for violating your UNALIENABLE Rights if they do so.

A video recording leads to felony charge for an 18 year old. They charge him with a felony that they believe will seem allowable under the law and then will push him to plead to a lesser charge. Somebody in Pennsylvania please get this kid a copy of the Constitution becasue in his schooling it was obviously never covered.
For each and every one of us, there is something in particular that has provided the impetus to look at the events of 9/11 more closely than before. For Jim Babka, of downsizedc.org, the impetus has come in the form of the documentary 9/11: Press For Truth. Please extend a warm welcome to Mr. Babka into the 9/11 Truth movement for recognizing the need and the willingness to now utilize the resources he has created to "Press For Truth.".
Jim Babka is the director of downsizedc.org, a well-organized, grassroots political action group. downsizedc began with a push for passage of the Read The Bills Act, an act to force members of CONgress to actually read the bills before voting on them. RTBA remains the primary focus but, other issues have received serious attention as well.
I have missed Jim's live broadcast on GCNlive 2007-06-10 where he announced the new initiave for downsizedc. If someone could post an .mp3 of this, I'm sure that I would be joined by many who would be greatly appreciative.
If you are not a "member" of downsizedc.org, please consider becoming one. No, don't consider, just do it. I believe that Jim Babka is fighting the good fight and he has assembled an swift and effective tool for individuals to hammer their elected REPRESENTATIVES with their feelings and opinions. The new "petition", which merely consists of two succinct statements, can be found at the first link below. You are encouraged to add your personal comments which will then be forwarded to your elected REPRESENTATIVES.

One could very well speak in the same vein of the entity called the Central Intelligence Agency. It might be useful if the federal government (once thrown back into its constitutional cage, of course) had an agency devoted to collecting relevant intelligence, rather than what it has now – a body involved in propagating turmoil, terror, and subversion throughout most of the world.

WTC7 housed the Securities and Exchange Commission, which was investigating Enron. Late 2001 was the time of “the height of the investigation into Enron, so the majority of Enron’s SEC filings were likely destroyed when World Trade Center 7 came down.” [Barry Zwicker, The 9/11 News Special You Never Saw]
How convenient for WTC7 to be totally destroyed and Cliff Baxter, former Enron Vice Chairman, to kill himself. Blame it on the bossa nova, er, I mean al-Qaeda. It's obvious that the financing of 9/11 is one of those intentionally underexamined points in the OTC, where more truth than fiction could be easily shaken out. What say you Sibel?

I couldn't have said it any better so, here is Mike Rivero's (of whatreallyhappened.com) comment on the story below:
A 16 year-old girl will be held in jail WITHOUT BOND, for handing out politically incorrect fliers.
The issue isn't whether or not you agree with the content of the fliers (for the record, I do NOT) but the First Amendment right to freedom of speech and ideas, which is under attack via the so-called "hate crime" laws.
It is easy to support freedom of speech when the speaker says something you agree with. But the true test of your commitment to principles is when the speaker says something you absolutely do not like. Then and only then do we see who are real Americans, and who support tyranny.
Right or wrong, this young girl should have the freedom to voice her opinion. Under that same principle, those who do not agree with her have the same right to voice their contradiction. Out of that debate arrives consensus.
But when certain topics are declared illegal to speak about or think about, we are on the road to the thought police, because it won't be just about the gays next time.

MSNBC has an interesting query. They are looking for topics that really matter the most to Americans and intend to create polls from issues raised. They may also choose to have reporters contact people who submit issues for follow up.
How does 9/11 Truth really matter to you? Can you articulate clearly why 9/11 Truth is important to you and succinctly describe how your desire for the truth affects your everyday life? There is a limit of 3000 characters. I do not know if this limit is for the entire response or each of the three subsections. How many people can we get submitting to this? Very few are still laughing at us. Can we bring together enough well-wriiten responses such that they can't ignore them?

Things aren't looking good for Ghouliani. Ghouliani's staff is treating this as if it were nothing more than a partisan attack by a group (NY Firefighters Union) who traditionally have supported Democrats. While that may be true in a small part, we know that there is more of a rejection of Ghouliani due to his callous disregard for Ground Zero rescue workers and 9/11 victims families that he sustained long after 9/11. Ghouliani's 9/11 profiteering on terror by way of his fictional hero role has resulted in an utterly ridiculous ascension of his personal wealth off of their sacrifices. All the while the health of the true heroes declines and they are are dying for lack of adequate protection then, and now. Firefighters had a legitimate complaint in that Ghouliani rushed to clean up ground zero, preventing the remains of many firefighters from being recovered. However, the removal of the steel, crime scene evidence that probably held darkest secrets related to the explosions in the towers and building 7, should never be forgotten.

The 9-11 Commission Charade
by Rep. Ron Paul, MD - August 24, 2004
The 9-11 Commission report, released late last month, has disrupted the normally quiet Washington August. Various congressional committees are holding hearings on the report this week, even though Congress is not in session, in an attempt to show the government is “doing something” about terrorism in an election year. The Commission recommendations themselves have been accepted reverently and without question, as if handed down from on high.
"America at a Crossroads" premiering on PBS in April 15, 2007
America at a Crossroads is a major public television event premiering on PBS in April 2007 that explores the challenges confronting the post-9/11 world — including the war on terrorism; the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan; the experience of American troops serving abroad; the struggle for balance within the Muslim world; and global perspectives on America’s role overseas.
Aimed at creating a national dialogue surrounding the crucial issues explored in the series, an extensive media and outreach campaign in more than 25 communities accompanies the series. The campaign features screening events with the filmmakers and their subjects in discussions with United States military personnel, leading policy experts, leaders of the Islamic community, scholars from across the country as well as members of the public. Integrated Web and educational initiatives further extend the campaign.

Richardson: 'Nuclear 9-11' Is Possible
Mar 28 01:40 PM US/Eastern
By NEDRA PICKLER
Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON (AP) - Democratic presidential candidate Bill Richardson said the United States needs to do more to prevent a "nuclear 9-11," a threat that he argues has been neglected because the Bush administration has been consumed with Iraq.
The New Mexico governor said the United States must lead an effort to secure nuclear materials in Russia and dangerous areas of the world so they can't get into terrorists' hands. "If al-Qaida obtained nuclear weapons, they would not hesitate to use them with the same ruthlessness that allowed them to fly airplanes filled with people into buildings," he said in a speech to the Nitze School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University.
Good detectives don't need to be reminded to "follow the money" when investigating a crime. However, according to Thomas Kean, the chairman of the 9/11 Commission, following the money trail in the many crimes committed in connection with the events of September 11th was "of little practical significance." For Kean, following the money in crimes that included the mass murder of over 3000 people in these united States alone was too much bother to pursue in that it only cost about $166 per murder. But, that only considers the possible cost of perpetrating the crimes and doesn't take the benefits into account?
'Cui Bono' is a latin phrase suggesting that a person or persons guilty of committing a crime might be found among those who stand to gain financially. The person(s) who benefit may not always be obvious. And, they may have cunningly created a scapegoat that successfully diverts attention elsewhere. So, where does the money trail for the events of 9/11 lead?
The Federal Reserve is the central banking system through which all financial transactions must flow. Anyone with a working knowledge of the history of the Federal Reserve System would agree that the Fed weilds enormous power. The Federal Reserve, along with other central banks in the world, have been implicated in fomenting and funding all of the major wars for the last one hundred years. Certainly, the Fed is powerful enough to exercise influence over the puny politicians comprising the 9/11 Commission and it's putrid executive director. The Fed easily possesses the power that would be required to keep incriminating information to their detriment from seeing the light of day. Should it come as any surprise then, that the Fed may very hold a master key to unlocking the truth about 9/11?
William Bergman worked at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago from July 1990 until early 2004 as an economist and senior analyst.
At the time I was also looking into and asking questions about currency flows. I thought these questions were worth pursuing, and was planning to raise them when I made the above-noted phone call to the Board of Governors. The currency component of M1 (Federal Reserve Notes circulating outside of banks) rose especially rapidly in July and August 2001. In fact, up to and including August 2001, that month (August 2001) was one of the three fastest growing months for the currency component of M1 since 1947, on a seasonally adjusted basis, even on the heels of significantly above-average growth in July 2001. Much of the July-August surge (over $5 billion above-average) seems to have been in the $100 denomination. Among other explanations, persons aware of any imminent terrorist attacks and concerned about possible asset seizures such as those that arose after the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis and the 1998 embassy bombings could have been trying to liquidate their bank accounts in July and August 2001. The money trail could provide important clues about people aware of, if not responsible for, the attacks. I looked at some internal data bearing on this issue that was available to anyone within the Federal Reserve’s internal computer network; after going back to look at this important data again a week or two later, it was no longer freely available, but password protected.
