Paranoid Shift.

Whether you are a 9/11 Truther responding to the clear attack that labels the movement as a bunch of deluded kooks or you must react to the more subtle critique that the movement simply forges conclusions of conspiracy from a set of innocuous or unrelated circumstantial bits of evidence (http://tinyurl.com/r7n2g), I believe this 2004 essay provides a solid response that, yes, we may be paranoid, AND there is a damn good reason for it. It is the best explanation of 9/11 Truth psychology that I have read and has only been buttressed by more chunks of evidence of governmental complicity since Michael Hasty drafted it.

911 Freedom Walk - what a crock

Ok, so this is obviously my first attempt at a blog. Here in OK, it's been heavily promoted that OKC is to host a "911 Freedom Walk" on the 5-year anniversary of the 911 crime. Even the governor and ex-governor joined forces to announce the event. It is scheduled to begin at the OKC bombing memorial and will end at the Bricktown Ballpark (corporate name omitted!).

See, the thing is that I've been wanting to get a big 911 protest cooked up in OKC for years. I even went so far as to call for one a few years back, but all the people I informed about it didn't show up. So there I was, on the corner of 23rd and Classen, all by myself with my "Expose the 911 cover up" sign. It was actually kinda fun.

After doing a little digging around about this "freedom walk" they have planned, I came across this site:

http://www.americasupportsyou.mil/americasupportsyou/

One word: WOW. So the DoD and military (note the .mil in the addy) are promoting these "freedom walks" all over the country. You can even volunteer to host one in your own city. So I say to myself, "This is a great opportunity for 911 truth seekers to show up and hand out truth materials, they have basically planned our nationwide protests for us!" I tell all of my local 'truth group' and they are all pumped to go stage our own counter-march at this thing. Then, I get online and start telling people about it.

AFGHAN WARRIOR: THE LIFE & DEATH OF ABDUL HAQ


AFGHAN WARRIOR: THE LIFE & DEATH OF ABDUL HAQ
BBC TWO Wednesday 18 February 2004 11.20pm-12.45am

The remarkable story of Abdul Haq, warrior, peacemaker, visionary and martyr, whose fight to bring Afghanistan freedom and peace brought about his death.

DIRECTOR INTERVIEW: MALCOLM BRINKWORTH

BBC Four: For people who've never heard of Abdul Haq, why was he an important figure?
Malcolm Brinkworth: First, he was probably one of the most successful and respected commanders during the Soviet-Afghanistan War. Secondly, he was a man of principal. He espoused all the kinds of banners we think we stand for in the West, like truth, honesty and integrity. All the people who worked with him during that war said he had no anger or division over ethnicity, over which tribe or part of Afghanistan you came from. Thirdly, he was also the man who got things done. He was a highly effective commander and organiser. Everywhere we went in our research, most people agreed that Abdul Haq was one of the most important figures in Afghanistan. That's why the Pakistan officials and the ISI didn't really like him. Haq wouldn't tow the line. When I was looking at the whole history of the last 25 years it became clear that you can see the whole conflict through Haq's eyes. You can understand what happened in the Soviet-Afghan War, you can understand the way the Pakistan Government and the CIA played things out, and you can also understand what then led to the kind of climate that made Afghanistan turn itself into a terrorist state.

Another AP Hit Piece on David Ray Griffin

I was astounded and amazed to see this Associated Press hit-piece article on David Ray Griffin in my local "see-no-truth, hear-no-truth, report-only-conservative-lies" newspaper this morning (not the one at the link, by the way). This newspaper never publishes any sort of controversial news -- ever -- not even in the form of hit pieces.

Furthermore, not only is it a hit piece, but the author, Richard N. Ostling, just plain lies or blatantly misleads in a couple of places. For instance:

1.) "Griffin is unable to provide hard evidence and connects few dots."

2.) "Such 9/11 conspiracy theories have heretofore been spread abroad by Internet sites and Muslim extremists (some of those theories have blamed Jews, something Griffin goes out of his way to avoid)."

Yeah, Ostling. Leave out the two nationwide polls that show that anywhere from 36 percent to 40-some percent of Americans believe there was a conspiracy too.

In this next sentence, the author does his best to make it appear that there are only two members of the Scholars for 9/11 Truth:

American Nostalgic Sentiment For The BBC And Misplaced Trust

American Nostalgic Sentiment For The BBC And Misplaced
Trust.

Introduction.

The BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation), has a unique relationship to and
place in history concerning modern world media. It is an entity which it has reported,
documented, educated and dramatised though it's various media the very world in
which it exists.  It is a national and international broadcasting
corporation established by a royal charter.  The organisation, although
having undergone significant changes due to the new-media technological
revolution, remains a behemoth.  The BBC has adapted continuously
over the decades to remain a leading world news and media source.  It has
diversified into foreign markets aggressively using it's impressive heritage, as
a powerful marketing tool.  Regardless of it's market friendly appearances
abroad, the BBC is still a state owned, state funded media conglomerate. 
The phrase media conglomerate is important, as the BBC exists in radio,
television, internet, and print publications.  The BBC importantly is a
state owned corporation belonging to the worlds 5th largest economy. 
Despite being publicly funded this corporation exists in the free market too,
and raises money across the world, through the sale of it's broadcasts and other
media related materials.  A giant of the media age, disguised often as the
honest broker of world affairs; the BBC is funded by an annual tax of $230 USD,
paid by every household in the UK, and still the corporation is able to sell
broadcasts across the world for even more money!  In 2005 the BBC has the
largest budget of any UK broadcaster with an operating expenditure of £4
billion/$7 billion USD (that's $7000,000,000 US).

911 Demolitions, Propaganda, Proof from Authority, evidence

Word for the Day:

Folly: Defect of Understanding.

Summary:

Despite the Propaganda, proof of demolitions of the Towers on 9/11 does not require specialized knowledge, nor proof (or attempted disproof) argued from authority, but is overwhelming.

What can expose the all-pervasive, widespread and shocking folly of the Public and Society, as can Morgan Reynolds latest writing?

I am, for the most part, ignoring Reynolds' Jones discussion, but am just happy that, in outing the problems with Jones, Reynolds has found the opportunity to detail a wonderful summary of the issue, with pictures.

Folly: Who is worse?

The public, media personalities, left writers, right writers, all of those who scoff at "those wacky conspiracy theorists" and buy the official story, even to the point of vehemently defending it.

Or the stupid perps themselves, to waste their lives contriving such evil? To what purpose?

And a normal person can only guess at their motivation. But someone who thinks about it, and studies it, can only contemplate the infinity of a fool. At least with those who are simply deliberately harmful, there is an end to it somewhere. But with foolishness, it just looks to be infinite, when you contemplate these bastards.

How shall We approach this?

Refering to the 911 Scholars Symposium. I was watching and listening to the four guys... Steve Jones, Bowman, Tarpley, and Fetzer, and each of them were good in different ways. Fetzer was impassioned from his depths, I think, and Tarpley had a lot of info at his "neuron tips," and Prof. Jones was just bemused and really kind of out of his natural environment and it showed. He acted like a kid who has discovered a new toy and doesn't realize it is a loaded gun with the safety off. Bowman was politicking - maybe he's sincere, I don't know.
Anyway, combined, they did produce a strong impression that might sway a lot of people to their view which includes arresting Bush and the whole gang for treason. Bowman even says that if he is elected to congress, he'll make it an issue "on the hill."
So, the question is, of course, why are they being allowed to have even a toe in the door?

That was my first question and as I was listening to all of them pat themselves on the back that they were NOW getting a lot of attention, that people were opening up and seeing the truth, and it was just a matter of time before the whole thing blows wide open, I could only think: You don't know what you are dealing with. Facing down psychopaths isn't going to be that easy.

Leave Some Comments At Salon.com

Salon is now featuring a review of Lawrence Wright's The Looming Tower: Al Qaeda and the Road to 9/11, an obvious piece of shillwork. It appears some 9/11 Truth folks have already left comments. Have at it, people...

Walking a Fine Line in the 9/11 Community - A Lesson in Futility

One of my personal desires in the new changes at 911blogger.com was to be able to find a personal voice via my own personal blog, to let me rant if you will. That is what this is, and perhaps by the end you will understand why finding a medium by which I could do so was of utmost importance to me.

When it comes to the 9/11 community today it takes walking a fine line to stay out of the line of fire, and is often a purely futile exercise. Those that wish not to be involved so much in determining the 'truth' about 9/11, but rather bringing focus to the questions surrounding 9/11, have a smaller and smaller place in which to dance.

To be accepted amongst one clique you must adhere to one belief, and to be accepted amongst another clique you must adhere to another set of beliefs. An agnostic 9/11 activist finds themselves fitting in with no one, as not deciding on an opinion is all to often interpreted as actually advocating the opposite belief of whomever is demanding your stance on a given subject. This struggle to be 'agnostic' in the 9/11 movement has become an increasingly more and more futile exercise.

It would only make sense to provide a couple of examples as to what I'm getting at. Seeing as how I am indirectly making this blog entry to highlight my own personal frustrations, it only seems right to include examples of how 911blogger.com has been judged by others in the community. This listing is by no means complete, nor is it meant to cast anger towards others - as such no specific details will be provided.

Twenty Things We Now Know, Five Years After 9/11

The imminent fifth anniversary of 9/11 provides the proper moment for a good, ol'-fashioned sum-up of the past half-decade under CheneyBush, especially because so much has happened in the past 12-months:

The Bush Administration's Katrina debacle, Iraq being sucked deeper into the civil-war vortex, Afghanistan turning once again into a major war theater, more and more military leaders speaking out about the disaster that is CheneyBush foreign policy, the defection of so many moderate conservatives from their GOP home, the plummeting of Bush's popularity to not much more than his fundamentalist base, the revelation that Bush&Co. have been spying on citizens' phone calls and emails without court warrants, the indictment of CheneyBush's chief aide Scooter Libby for obstruction of justice in the case of the White House's outing of a covert CIA agent, the "rendering" of detainees abroad for extreme torturing, etc. etc.

I'll get to the annual list in a moment. But first let's step back and take a deeper overview. Buckle your seat belts, here we go.

9/11 Truth + Environmental Awareness = Revolution

I am dismayed by what I see as a general lack of scope in the 9/11 movement, especially concerning environmental awareness. What is our movement more about, Truth or 9/11?

9/11 is not the end-all be-all issue and too many of us seem to get caught up in the intricacies of this one event. 9/11 Truth is a fascinating, revolutionary subject, but if it doesn't wake you up to examining larger truths and implications, it can become just another diversion.

I believe it is inevitable that the 9/11 Truth Movement will mature into a more general Truth Movement.

Deconstructing 9/11 and other deceptions (assassinations, etc.) are opportunities to wake up from a conditioned reality and start questioning things. The next steps are to figure out what's really going on in our world, get our priorities straight, and do something about it.

While Peak Oil may be a controversial topic within the movement, no rational person can deny that environmental degradation, global warming, and overpopulation are among the most critical challenges facing us as a species and planet.

I don't know about you, but to me the suicidal nature of the industrialized world economy (and the extent of the damage already done) is more shocking than the fact that 9/11 was an inside job. It is also a much bigger "deception" than 9/11.
