Deutsche Bank tower holding evidence?

Here is something that was sent in by Rob, thought I'd post it here to see what people thought: 

I have not seen this discussed but I ready a story in the Daily News about he Deutsche Bank tower. It was purchased by the State in 2004 and is now being cleaned/prepped for demolition.

Its the heavily damaged building draped in black right next to former WTC plaza.

Apparently, It has been deemed a hazardous site. They've been fighting over who is going to pay for cleanup and demolition.

Intuivitely thinking, would it not be possible that this building is holding key pieces of evidence? Pieces of the former WTC, remants of explosives, etc?

Just wondering if this has been considered...because the state is cleaning it up..

Charges Sought Against Rumsfeld Over Prison Abuse,8599,1557842,00.html

Charges Sought Against Rumsfeld Over Prison Abuse

A lawsuit in Germany will seek a criminal prosecution of the outgoing Defense Secretary and other U.S. officials for their alleged role in abuses at Abu Ghraib and Gitmo.
Just days after his resignation, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld is about to face more repercussions for his involvement in the troubled wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. New legal documents, to be filed next week with Germany's top prosecutor, will seek a criminal investigation and prosecution of Rumsfeld, along with Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, former CIA director George Tenet and other senior U.S. civilian and military officers, for their alleged roles in abuses committed at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison and at the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The plaintiffs in the case include 11 Iraqis who were prisoners at Abu Ghraib, as well as Mohammad al-Qahtani, a Saudi held at Guantanamo, whom the U.S. has identified as the so-called "20th hijacker" and a would-be participant in the 9/11 hijackings. As TIME first reported in June 2005, Qahtani underwent a "special interrogation plan," personally approved by Rumsfeld, which the U.S. says produced valuable intelligence. But to obtain it, according to the log of his interrogation and government reports, Qahtani was subjected to forced nudity, sexual humiliation, religious humiliation, prolonged stress positions, sleep deprivation and other controversial interrogation techniques.

Interesting quote

Here's a quote that someone sent me, seems pretty relevant: 
"Beware of the leader who bangs of war in order to whip the citizenry into
a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword.  It both
emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind.  And when the drums of war
have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind is
closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry.
Rather, the citizenry infused with fear and blinded by patriotism,
will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and do it gladly so. 
How do I know?  I know for this is what I have done."

Rulings Question Terror Obsession, Crime Is Crime, Courts Are Saying

Oct. 25, 2006. 01:56 PM

Carefully, gradually, the courts are nibbling away at Canada's anti-terror laws. They did it last week when an Ontario Superior Court justice ruled that secrecy provisions of these laws contradict freedom of the press. They did it again yesterday when another Ontario judge declared the very definition of terrorist activity is unconstitutional.

The rulings represent a sharp rebuke to those parliamentarians who rushed through the terror laws in the wake of the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington. They also call into question the current obsession with terrorism as a unique, world-defining evil.

In yesterday's decision — related to the terror charges brought against Ottawa computer software developer Momin Khawaja — Superior Court Justice Douglas Rutherford concluded that the central definition of what constitutes "a terrorist activity" contravenes constitutional provisions that guarantee freedom of religion, expression and association.

Under the 2001 law, a terrorist activity is defined as an act of violent intimidation that is motivated by religion, politics or ideology. Yet, as Rutherford noted, the government has never been able to satisfactorily explain why mass murder carried out in the name of religion or ideology is somehow worse than mass murder carried out for reasons of profit or personal pathology.

At the time the law was passed, the then-Liberal government's only defence for this motive provision was that, without it, terrorist crimes would be no different from ordinary crimes.

Which, as Rutherford said, is precisely the point.

"The average person would be hard-pressed, I daresay, to recount much about the motives of some if not all of these notorious crimes (such as the 9/11 attacks)," he wrote. "Just what political, religious or ideological objectives or causes the perpetrators felt they were supporting with their actions is largely lost on the populations affected. And for good reason. It doesn't really matter."

What's more, he wrote, the decision to focus on religious or ideological motive will inevitably lead to a chilling effect on the right of Canadians to think and believe what they wish.

Those who are not terrorists, he writes, will inevitably be tarred because they happen to have the same religion or beliefs as those who are.

Right now, anti-terror laws are focused on Muslims. But Rutherford quotes approvingly from an analyst who argues that the law is sufficiently broad that it could be easily used against people with all kinds of beliefs — from environmentalists to anti-abortion advocates.

Ironically, the judge's decision could end up pleasing both fans and critics of tough anti-terror laws.

October Activism

Time for our own October surprise.

Please giving out Truth flyers or deception dollars to all the trick or treaters this year along with your candy.  Fold up the flyer nice and tight and the kids won't even notice, but when the parents inspect the candy later that night, they'll be in for a nice little surprise.

Think of the thousands of people we can reach using this method.  For once, we don't have to go out, holding signs up or putting flyers on windshield, they are coming right to our door.  This is the simplest way to reach John and Jane Q. Public, and those are the people we need to be targetting.

Here are a couple of flyers in PDF format that can be printed out for this purpose:

There are plenty of more flyers out there if you're looking for something different.

Also, going to a Halloween party?  Dress up as a 9/11 Truther, thats what I'm doing!  I'll be wearing my Blogger T-Shirt, my Inside Job pins, and will be handing out flyers and deception dollars to anyone who asks what my costume is.  This couldn't get any simpler!!!

Petition: Call to Stand for Humanity

To:  International Court of Justice (aka World Court)

Call to Stand for Humanity

Canadian Action Party, a registered Canadian Federal Political party, is calling for all leaders, both political and religious, of every nation, and all free people to condemn the U.S. Torture, Assassination and Detainment law (H.R. 6166) officially described as “Military Commissions Act of 2006” and passed into USA law on October 5, 2006.

If you do not support the authority of George W. Bush (and all future American presidents or their agents) to detain, arrest, torture and/or assassinate any and every human being on the planet deemed a “threat”, then decency and history demand that you publicly declare your position, immediately.

The U.S. Congress and Senate has insanely endorsed these unrestrained personal powers for use, at his pleasure, into law. This law seeks to make George W. Bush judge, jury and executioner in every country, over every citizen. With such power endorsed, all rights, all liberties are forfeited.

Speak plainly. Speak now, before simple dissent is used as the warrant for your own extermination.

Do you endorse or oppose such power?

We shall post this message on our website ( to document all those in government who refuse to oppose this bill or choose to remain silent.

Contact: Connie Fogal, Leader, Catherine Whelan Costen, President
Tel: 1.604.708.3372 or email:

Petition to the International Court of Justice:
We, the undersigned, citizens of planet Earth stand together to affirm the universal right of all human beings to live free from the threat of arrest without immediate, unbiased, judicial process; free from torture of any kind; free from threat of assassination.

We believe Bill H.R. 6166 violates the basic tenets of human decency and that it is, in and of itself, a crime against humanity.

We urge the people of the United States of America to return to the principled constitution, which gave them birth and ask the members of the International Court of Justice (aka World Court) to publicly condemn this inhumane legislation known as 'Military Commissions Act of 2006'.

Alleged Toronto terror plot included two police agents

According to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s Fifth Estate and the Globe & Mail, the “Toronto terror cell” arrested in June for allegedly plotting massive acts of terrorism against Canadian targets included not just one, but two Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) moles. This second Muslim man in the pay of Canada’s security forces is said to have been involved in the accused terrorists’ alleged efforts to construct powerful explosives.

Following the early June arrest of 18 young Toronto-area men on terrorism charges, government and media sources repeated ad nauseam that only prompt action by the security and intelligence services prevented a major terrorist atrocity.

The authorities’ contention that those arrested posed a real and imminent threat rested on two claims—both of which have proven threadbare. On the one hand, they pointed to a “terrorist training camp” held in rural Ontario during December 2005. On the other hand, the Toronto men’s intention to put into action their terrorist schemes was said to be proven by their alleged attempt to buy large quantities of ammonium nitrate, a fertilizer, from which bombs can been be made.

FBI in New York the week before attacks?

This statement:

Ms. Terry added this: "Last week the FBI was all over the Trade Center. They were parked in our spot. They knew something was up."

From this 9/11 survivor story: 

Is very interesting to say the least.  This goes beyond any "power down".  I have heard other witness statements in the past that said the FBI was all over the towers the week before the attacks, and may even have had the building cordoned off.  I wish I remember where I read those statements.

Anyone else have any information on this?  If we can prove the FBI was swarming the towers the week before the attacks, that would be yet another smoking gun. 

U.S. Arms Great Lakes Boats

Knowing what we know about the supposed terrorist threat to the United States, what is the true motive for this?

The Canadian Press     

Canada - Thursday, September 28, 2006 @ 02:00

HALIFAX — The U.S. Coast Guard’s plans to arm boats on the great lakes with machine-guns — a measure that has drawn fire from Canadian residents — were sanctioned by Ottawa three years ago, officials from both countries confirmed today.

Earlier this year, the American coast guard started training exercises on the lakes with live .30-calibre machine-guns attached to several small boats.

The practice was temporarily suspended until November after complaints from residents and Canadian politicians, including Toronto Mayor David Miller who claimed the move violated a treaty signed after the War of 1812.

But the commandant of the U.S. Coast Guard said it’s become necessary to protect the border that runs through the lakes, and he said the treaty no longer applies.

Most Canadians don't benefit from free trade: Report

So the rich get richer and the poor get poorer under these rules, big surprise.  I guess if Free Trade was nothing but a bust for the average Joe, the North American Union will be a killer:

Beth Gorham

World - Friday, September 29, 2006 @ 02:00

free trade in North America has resulted in sharp gains for the rich at the expense of the average Canadian worker, says a report from the U.S. Economic Policy Institute released Thursday.

In fact, lower-income Canadians are worse off than they were before free trade and cuts to federal social programs at the same time have compounded the problem, said co-author Bruce Campbell, executive director at the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives.

The Ottawa-based think-tank is an independent non-partisan organization that promotes research on economic and social policy "from a progressive point of view" - according to its website - and concerns about social and economic justice.

Similarly, the U.S. institute carries out economic research and education, with a "concern for the the living standards of working people."

While trade between the NAFTA partners has grown rapidly, the free trade deals have not helped all workers, the report says.

"The most striking feature of this growing inequality has been the massive gains of the richest one per cent of income earners at the expense of most of the population," said Campbell, who called for a major assessment of the costs and benefits of the North American free trade Agreement.

"Economic and political elites promised that free trade would usher in a golden era of prosperity for Canada. It clearly has not delivered the goods."

The institute's report found similar problems in Mexico and, to a lesser extent, the United States.

"In each nation, workers' share of the gains from rising productivity fell and the proportion of income and wealth going to those at the very top of the economic pyramid grew," said Jeff Faux, founder of the Washington-based think-tank.

NAFTA came into effect in 1994, five years after the Canada-U.S. free trade deal. In 2005, two-way trade between Canada and the United States approached nearly $US500 billion, while U.S.-Mexican trade amounted to about US $290 billion, both figures sharply higher than when the trade deals began.

Campbell said both agreements were supposed to boost living standards, help close the productivity gap with the United States, create a more efficient economy and strengthen Canada's social safety net. Yet, there is no evidence Canada gained a special advantage in the American market, said Campbell, and the country's share of U.S. imports actually fell after 1994.

Big business, though, has done well. A study of 40 non-financial member companies of the Canadian Council of Chief Executives found their combined revenues jumped 105 per cent between 1988 and 2002, while their overall workforce shrank by 15 per cent.

The wealth hasn't trickled down, said Campbell, despite steady productivity growth in the Canadian economy. "If free trade was supposed to usher in a new era of rising living standards, reversing the sluggishness of the 1980s, the record reveals quite the opposite."
