Dismissing Tabloid Mentality

DISMISSING TABLOID MENTALITY by r. andrew stokes
4/09/10

The Weekly World News disappeared from the grocery store checkout stands a couple of years ago; the internet Wal-Marted them out of the publishing business. The Sun, The Inquirer and those of that ilk still entertain us as we wait to pay for our food. So the glamour, glitch and chutzpah still adorn a part of our daily lives.
We have tabloid television, and there are radio shows you can tune in for the latest gossip about anything Hollywood. It has its appeal, but what good does it really do us? I acknowledge that some are just thrilled that movie stars have sex, endure dysfunctional relationships, and probably have nice cars. How that relates to us is not anywhere near reality, and this may be the point of the tabloid mentality; escaping non-reality.

9/11 101 Make-Up Test

Anyone who has read my posting knows that I came into 911blogger fairly computer illiterate, and on a dinosaur dial-up connection. So for many years, I have not had access to the thousands of videos available on-line.

I have recently had access to up-to-date computers and have been able to renew my 9/11 studies. I do not have the hours it takes to locate certain information, so I ask in my blog for responses to a few questions.

Has anyone determined what the white, boxlike structure was on the roof of the WTC? Many overhead views from aircraft show reasonably clean roofs on both towers. On 9/11, the box structure is quite obvious.

Has anyone determined the speed of the aircraft in the Naudet film? David Chandler's pragmatic mathematics inspired this thought.

Has anyone produced a video simulation of what a gravity collapse of the towers SHOULD look like, using the data available?

I appreciate any help or dialogue on these topics.

SIR:
Over thirty years ago, the Jonestown massacre grabbed headlines. “Drink the Kool Aid” became a catch-phrase for committing suicide at the prompting of a leader.
A carefully orchestrated campaign regarding “swine flu” has made mainstream headlines. The U.S. government has paid an enormous sum for the alleged vaccine. The public has deliberately been uninformed regarding the side-affects of this vaccine, and who stands to profit from its distribution; none other than Donald Rumsfeld. http://www.serendipity.li/bf/pandemics.htm
The public is also unaware of a lawsuit filed against the WHO by Jane Burgermeister regarding the vaccine.

LATEST LETTER

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
The Northern Virginia Daily July 14, 2009
Sir:
Regarding Karen Hill’s July 10 letter;
The war machinery I refer to is also called the “Military Industrial Complex”. At this point in history, it is composed primarily of several huge corporations which provide goods and services to the Pentagon.
The U.S. owns 11 aircraft carriers at a cost of $45 billion each, a yearly operating cost of $160,000,000...that’s $438,356.00 per day, each. We have in service 89,129 military aircraft with an additional 29,700 helicopters, all needing fuel and maintenance. There are 8,800 tanks, depending on whose numbers you believe. All have parts that wear out. All of the above required research, development, testing, upgrading, transportation costs and yearly makeovers. America claims 737 military bases worldwide, but that number rises well past 1,000 when secret bases are taken into account. They had to be built, maintained, people fed and clothed (military), provided computers, desks and pencils. Regarding the secret bases; prison hardware, “interrogation facilities”, electricity and water, heating and cooling (for the interrogators).

The Real Thing

In 2001-2 there were very few websites dedicated to 9/11 truth. In fact, we were still trying to figure out what to call ourselves. I remember how nervous it made me to suggest...back then...that perhaps remote-controlled aircraft were used.

In those days I used a borrowed computer to access the websites. Recently I had the chance to see some of the on-line videos I'd never had access to, before. The one that impressed me most was Steven Jones lecturing while a Thermite promo played simultaniously.

Having followed the 49er hit-piece from the start (and still getting e-mails from the site) definate patterns arise with those "debunkers" who fight so vehemently against the TruthMovement's presentation of facts. There's lot's of "could it be?" and "Perhaps, then" statements. On one debunking website, the author nudges himself next to the firefighters, thus becoming one in the reader's mind. In short, deceptive techniques are employed along with subliminal suggestion. Virtually never is there a forthright statement.

JOURNALIST SUES WHO and UN FOR ATTEMPTED MASS MURDER

(NaturalNews) As the anticipated July release date for Baxter's A/H1N1 flu pandemic vaccine approaches, an Austrian investigative journalist is warning the world that the greatest crime in the history of humanity is underway. Jane Burgermeister has recently filed criminal charges with the FBI against the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations (UN), and several of the highest ranking government and corporate officials concerning bioterrorism and attempts to commit mass murder. She has also prepared an injunction against forced vaccination which is being filed in America. These actions follow her charges filed in April against Baxter AG and Avir Green Hills Biotechnology of Austria for producing contaminated bird flu vaccine, alleging this was a deliberate act to cause and profit from a pandemic.

AN APPEAL TO THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY

AN APPEAL TO THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY AGENTS
by r. andrew stokes

Growing up in the sixties, I watched many of the spy programs on television which made the life of a spy so appealing. It was daring, it was dashing, and sexually appealing. It was enough, coupled with plenty of cop shows, to nudge my ambitions toward law enforcement. As recently as 1996 I still considered a career in private investigation. I decided I did not want to make other people’s problems my own. I also cannot lead a spiritual life while simultaneously supporting the mere symptoms of those forces working against humanity.

I have had the honor of knowing people from the intelligence community, and in law enforcement. Theirs’ is a unique set of ideals, humor, and thought process. I am also keenly aware that alcoholism runs rampant in the intelligence community, due to the trappedness many of them feel. Once you’ve taken the bait, and entered FBI or CIA, there is no getting out. You know too much, and when stuck with this reality, alcohol seems to help one escape.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR, JUNE

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR June 13, 2009
The Northern Virginia Daily

Sir:
The holocaust museum in Washington, D.C. stands as a shrine for humanity’s inhumanity to itself. It is a permanent monument of the world’s refusal to hear the pleas of atrocities. Had the world listened to those reporting the mass murder of Jews, homosexuals, Jehovah’s Witnesses and others, there would be no holocaust museum. But it was more comfortable to brush away the unspeakable with denials, and continue a life of privileged consumption. While millions were perishing in concentration camps, and the perpetrators of this war machinery glutted more power, the world pretended it wasn’t happening.
The recent shootings at the museum have created much fodder for the Republican radio mouth pieces, and Israel licked its wounds in front of the world stage. Talk radio propagandists have even insinuated von Brunn was a member of the 9/11 Truth Movement, and a hero to that group.
So far, no word from Kingdom Hall or the gay community; both have a bit more dignity than that. Other holocaust victims have yet to chime in.

Not So Computer-Illiterate, Now

I joined 911.blogger over 2 years ago, when I knew precious little how to get around. I started here, at 911.blogger, and now I can actually hobble around a little bit!

I invite bloggers to visit my home website and view my 9/11 postings, as well as my own board, "Eternity Workshop".
http://halfway.oceanfalls.org/index.php

Also, today I posted a Letter To The Editor...local Virginia paper...so I'm still quite active in 9/11 Truth.

Wishing you all well, and thanking you for still being here,
royster aka Roy Andrew Stokes
