Credo quia absurdum

Contrary to propaganda opinion, the West is not free. Our so-called democratic governments have not been honest with the people about the true origins of the government-made crisis that is called terrorism. And I am not coming from an anti-government perspective. Nor do I believe that non-state terrorism doesn't exist. It does, but it must be put into context, and any terrorist threat must be handled with detective tools rather than predator drones. But the larger threat to human civilization that we must face and fight against is state terrorism.

From the Gazette: 9/11 Skeptics to Speak at UQAM

9/11 skeptics to speak at UQAM

MONTREAL – A double-bill presentation scheduled in this city Monday evening by two leading voices of what’s known as the 9/11 truth movement has triggered lively debate over freedom of expression – after one researcher at the university where the event is being held labeled skeptics unconvinced by official U.S. government reports as “liars” and “intellectually dishonest.”

Organizers said the evening will be “Canada’s largest 9/11 conference.”

One speaker, David Ray Griffin, is a retired theologian currently writing his 10th book analyzing 9/11 and related topics. Its immediate predecessor examined the late-afternoon collapse Sept. 11, 2001, of World Trade Center 7. Griffin called the final U.S. government report on WTC 7 “unscientific and false.”

An earlier Griffin work devoted 339 pages to “omissions and distortions” of the official 9/11 Commission Report.

Towers of Deception: The Media Cover-up of 9/11
May 3rd, 2010 12:01 AM

Book by Barrie Zwicker

A dozen carefully researched books have exposed the official story of 9/11 to be a terror fraud. Yet the mainstream media have monolithically failed to ask elementary questions about anomalies in this story. So-called alternative media have been little better. Towers of Deception: The Media Cover-up of 9/11 explains why and prescribes actions to break out the truth.

Media Matters: Will Napolitano bring radical conspiracies and praise of 9/11 Truth leaders to his new Fox show?

Will Napolitano bring radical conspiracies and praise of 9-11 Truth leaders to his new Fox show?

Last week, Fox Business announced that it would begin airing senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano's FoxNews.com show Freedom Watch. Given the show's history, the move raises questions about whether the channel will allow Napolitano to mainstream and promote fringe guests and radical anti-government conspiracy theories.

In contrast to his Fox News colleagues, Napolitano has used his FoxNews.com show to praise and promote two of the most visible leaders of the 9-11 Truth movement, Alex Jones and Jesse Ventura. On Freedom Watch last month, Napolitano called guest Ventura a "champion of exposing government fraud and lies," and promoted Ventura's belief that the government either "participate[d]" in 9-11 or "knew it was going to happen and didn't do very much to stop it."

9-11 Conspiracy Theorist Hits the Road... Infamous 9-11 conspiracy theorist David Ray Griffin, whose books insist the Bush Administration and not al Qaeda blew up the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, is launching a speaking tour this week to help merge the "9-11 Truth Movement" with "more traditional Peace and Anti-War groups" against the "illegal and immoral war" in Afghanistan. The tour also presages Griffin's next book, Cognitive Infiltration: An Obama Appointee's Plan to Undermine the 9/11 Conspiracy Theory.

Key Expert Calls FBI's Theory About Anthrax "Impossible"

Key Expert Calls FBI's Theory About Accused Anthrax Terrorist 'Impossible'

A microbiologist who supervised the work of accused anthrax killer Bruce E. Ivins explained to a National Academy of Sciences panel Thursday why the arithmetic of growing anthrax didn't add up to Ivins' mailing deadly spores in fall 2001.

"Impossible," said Dr. Henry S. Heine of a scenario in which Ivins, another civilian microbiologist working for the Army, allegedly prepared the anthrax spores at an Army lab at Fort Detrick. Heine told the 16-member panel that Ivins would have had to grow as many as 10 trillion spores, an astronomical amount that couldn't have gone unnoticed by his colleagues.

FOX News Presents WTC 7

Recently, two prominent articles were published – in opposing veins: “NPR & Trust in Government,” by Robert Shetterly (04/19), which called out NPR for allowing the propaganda operative Philip Zelikow to “frame [a] discussion” on “Trust in government,” while failing to note his long record of purposeful (world stage) obfuscation, including a treacherous role in the area of WTC 7, and “Shame On Jesse Ventura!,” by Jeffrey Scott Shapiro (another operative) (04/21), who asserts “that [Larry] Silverstein planned to use controlled demolition on WTC 7” – as if it’s common knowledge/no big deal. The focus here is on Shapiro’s brash, out of the blue, aggressiveness (under the cover of being clueless to the overall picture/consequences), while Shetterly’s should be read for many reasons: clarity, as a depiction of rare courage in our dominant landscape, and as a partial portrayal of how Timing works in our fabricated environment.

Anyone else have information about a events on the ninth anniversary of 9/11?
(I would assume there would be events at Ground Zero also).

Reader Elaborates On Tower Collapses On 9/11

Reader elaborates on tower collapses on 9/11
Published: Apr 23rd, 7:10 AM
Editor: Thank you for providing this public forum to discuss the serious questions raised by Mr. Donald Meserlian concerning government records of the collapses of the Twin Towers on 9/11/01.

Mr. Chuck Stadman responded last week to my letter published [Thursday,] March 4, and equated my comments with “trash.”

I do not generally respond to such remarks, but I will here because there is a larger audience involved and the matter is of great importance. It seems that Mr. Stadman missed the point made by Mr. Meserlian when referring to explosions in the basements of the towers that were recorded as spikes on seismographs at Columbia University.

The point is that the tremors in the foundations of both towers happened “before” the impacts of the planes!

There were also many explosions reported by firemen. The towers were huge buildings and undoubtedly many cutter charges had to have been placed throughout them in order to bring them down quickly and symmetrically. In fact, they came down at nearly “free fall speed” which is impossible from fire.

The Propaganda Against David Ray Griffin's Tour Continues.

9-11 Conspiracy Theorist Hits the Road

Posted By Mark D. Tooley On April 23, 2010 @ 12:00 am In FrontPage | 62 Comments

Infamous 9-11 conspiracy theorist David Ray Griffin, whose books insist the Bush Administration and not al Qaeda blew up the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, is launching a speaking tour this week to help merge the “9-11 Truth Movement” with “more traditional Peace and Anti-War groups” against the “illegal and immoral war” in Afghanistan.

The tour also presages Griffin’s next book, Cognitive Infiltration: An Obama Appointee’s Plan to Undermine the 9/11 Conspiracy Theory. This volume will make much hay over an Obama White House official’s article in 2008 as a Harvard law professor, suggesting that the government actively rebut conspiracy theories by networking on social websites.

More Attacks on Griffin's Tour (they are getting scared)

Friday, April 16, 2010
Coming Soon to a Liberal Church Near You

David Ray Griffin, professor emeritus at a major United Methodist seminary, is on a new book tour presenting his convictions that the 9-11 attacks were part of a Bush Administration plot. Among his stops are several Episcopal and UM churches. ("Yes, Mildred. The speaker is a leftist nutcase who believes Bush was a devil, that Jesus wants us to overthrow the American 'empire' and that God is in the process of evolution... but they will be serving tea and those cream cakes you love afterward.")

But don't expect Griffin to target just Republicans. Oh no, he's actually a pretty broad-minded crank. This latest book, for instance, contends that Team Obama shouldn't carry on the war in Afghanistan. Worse yet, they seem to be trying to undermine 9-11 conspiracy theorists like himself. Humph. We can't have that.

(CorbettReport) – Those who have studied history know that nothing invigorates and empowers an authoritarian regime more than a spectacular act of violence, some sudden and senseless loss of life that allows the autocrat to stand on the smoking rubble and identify himself as the hero. It is at moments like this that the public—still in shock from the horror of the tragedy that has just unfolded before them—can be led into the most ruthless despotism: despotism that now bears the mantle of “security.”

Acts of terror and violence never benefit the average man or woman. They only ever benefit those in positions of power.

CommonDreams.org Finally (Mistakenly?) Presents Some 9/11 Truth

This is very surprising.
Common Dreams, a progressive internet website, has censored EVERYTHING relating to 9/11 Truth except a few mentions in which it mocked the whole 9/11 movement. (I was immediately banned from the comment section after just one innocuous comment, and remain banned after a couple of years).
But here we see in CommonDreams.org an article criticizing NPR for using Phillip Zelikow as a spokesman for focusing on Trust in Government.
Zelikow was the oversear of the 9/11 Commission, and used his power to ensure that the truth was ignored or avoided whereever possible.
And in this article, that was mentioned.
Here is an excerpt:

"What surprised me was what Ms. Hansen, and thus NPR, did not tell us about Mr. Zelikow. He was a neocon who worked very closely with Condoleezza Rice, Dick Cheney, and Carl Rove in the Bush administration. He was one of the primary authors of what has been called the Bush Doctrine -- the right of our country to make preemptive war on other countries in contradiction of international law and our own Constitution. During the Bush administration Zelikow defended the many lies that they told about the reasons for attacking Iraq. And he was put in charge of the 9/11 Commission, the committee that was supposed to tell the world what really happened on 9/11. He ran that committee so that the official version of events could not be questioned. He did not allow witnesses to testify who had seen and heard things that cast the official version into doubt. The commission totally ignored facts that made the official version untenable and it neglected to even mention that World Trade Center tower #7, not stuck by an airplane, also mysteriously collapsed that day."

This is either a big mistake, or things are changing.
I hope it is the latter.

Terrorizing 911 Truth

ShareIf it has been difficult for American leaders to influence the country’s foreign policy since the military-industrial complex wrested control from the state office after the Second World War, it has proven impossible to do so since the US sealed its Faustian bargain with Israel on 9/11. The US Empire is damned if it does cut the flow of money and arms to Israel and damned if it doesn’t.

The truth about 9/11 is going to emerge one way or another. How the momentum is managed will determine who is left without a chair when the music finally grinds to halt. While it’s broadly in both the US and Israeli governments interests to keep a lid on the truth by distracting the US population any which way it can, there appears to be a game of hide and seek taking place through the media to prepare the ground and cast one or the other in the role of villain. This was in evidence these past few weeks as ‘9/11 Truth’ hit the mainstream like never before.
