Just checking in..

I've been out the majority of this weekend, so I just wanted to check in..

First, on Friday I fixed the RSS feeds, they should be working fine now..

Second, despite higher than average usage this weekend we managed to only have 1 CPU quota error since Friday at 2PM.. Looks like a few changes I made actually made a difference.. The one CPU quota error we did have occurred because of a backup I was doing while the site was running.. I also tracked down a pretty big cause of the CPU overhead, I will try to get that taken care of this week just in case.. Basically the code I wrote to insert date headers on the main page is wasting a good bit of CPU, so worse comes to worse we can loose the date headers and that will get rid of a lot of the CPU overhead..

I hope this week to get into researching an appropriate ratings/voting/user points/karma system.. Maybe I can get that done in a week or two if things go well.. Also, we have gotten an incredibly nice offer for a site theme redesign, and from what I have seen so far I am very very impressed. Hopefully we can unveil this in a month or so..

I've been having some serious back issues this weekend - probably from working on this site so much last week - so I may be in and out depending on how that goes..

The Patriot Party Begins

The Patriot Party is dedicated to the lives lost on 9/11 and the lives we continue to lose in an unjust war. The main purpose of this site is to defend our rights against our government and it's methodical destruction of our Constitution. ''We The People'' speak here. We will post our comments, links, and real news in hopes of reaching out to as many people as we can to educate them about the elitist group who are responsible for the attacks on 9/11. Among them are President George W. Bush, Vice-President Dick Cheney, Secretary Of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld and former-President George H.W. Bush, Sr.

The Patriot Party:
1.Stands together united in one belief. The belief that ''We The People'' own America.
2. Will expose elected officials, big corporations and their business partners of their lies and will invite debates if challenged on any subject especially the conspiracy of 9/11.
3. Believes in voting with their conscious and keeping a close eye on candidates who switch views or support the war in Iraq.
4. Demands the 9/11 Commission be reopened, restructured and embodied with representatives of the peoples choice.
5. Calls for the immediate impeachment of President George W. Bush, Vice-President Dick Cheney and their entire cabinet.

A Challenge To Nico and All "No-Planers"

Dear Nico and all proponents of the "no-planes" theory:

I challenge you, once and for all, to show clear, concise proof of your claims. NOT diverse, disjointed links, NOT obscure, unproven claims about particular videos, but an easy to read and understand presentation. EVERYTHING I've seen posted on this subject has been vague, disjointed, headache producing... in a word, DISTRACTING.

I propose that, if none of you can meet this challenge to the satisfaction of the majority of the members of 911Blogger, that you be prevented from continuing to make what I believe are divisive and ultimately, destructive claims at 911Blogger. I further propose that the above challenge be met within the next 7 days.

Perhaps a poll could be created for this purpose. If members agree with the above proposal, please reply (additional suggestions are welcome).

How do you get search engines to find your page?

My site's been up a while and still I can't find it using any of the major search engines.

I know that they trawl through links they find on web pages to find new pages, but I've got http://www.911faq.org in various places now and still it does not exist :]

Anyone know if there's a minimum number of links required for a search engine to index your page?

Egos

There are several people within the movement who have TREMENDOUS egos. I have even referred to myself as an "Evil Genius". However, I am a VERY sarcastic individual, and OFTEN take part in jokes at my expense.

The reason I'm writing this is to remind everyone with egos of the following:

No ONE person has made a difference. It has been a COLLABORATIVE effort by people all over the world.

People like Dr. David Ray Griffin, Michael Ruppert, Paul Thompson, Dylan Avery, Carol Brouillet, etc... are all heroes. Each and every one of them.

However, how many people would have heard of their books, and videos, etc... if not for the 9/11 Truth Movement? How many mainstream media outlets have you seen post stories about their books? How many local stations have you seen post stories about their books? Think about how often in your daily life you see mention of anything related to 9/11 Truth. I can tell you it's not very much.

So my sincerest thanks to everyone in the movement. If not for us, the truth would have died.

Those of you with egos, please try to remember that.

I want to slap this F*cking idiot

" no planes struck the WTC
Posted: Aug 24, 2006 7:11 AM (1 of 11)

Around mid-2002 the case for controlled demolition of the WTC was essentially proven in the minds of many in the 911 truth movement. It was about this time that a small group of researchers discovered an even more remarkable facet of 9/11. Specifically, the shocking realization that the TV networks aired fake video of animated, CGI planes striking the WTC.

I was the first person to declare that the TV networks aired fake video. Since those early days many people have joined in support of this conclusion. At the moment, the question of whether real Boeing 767s struck the WTC is the hottest topic in the 911 Truth Movement. This is the area of research that is most promising for reaching the general public.

Globe and Mail "reviews" Towers of Deception

Martin Levin, writing in the Books section of the Globe and Mail yesterday (page D13), trashes Towers of Deception and says some of the "more important" books on 9/11 will be "reviewed at length" in coming weeks.

Levin misrepresents Zwicker's argument, claiming, for example, that Zwicker says Noam Chomsky "is part of the plot," without explaining what he means by that. Levin writes:

"Now I have little trouble believing it possible that plutocrats of the Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld axis of ego are orchestrating things for their own benefit and that of their Fortune 500 cronies. Or that the war in Iraq is based on an unsavoury stew of misconceptions, stupidity, wishful thinking and deceit. But what I do have difficulty believing is that the 'perpetrators' are intelligent enough and, I suppose, quite evil enough, not only to concoct such a grand strategy, but to carry it off so deviously that only Zwicker and his allies can discern its true nature. I have just as hard a time believing that this sometimes entertainingly obsessive screed has proved anything at all."

"Only Zwicker and his allies"? You mean the 100 million Americans, 20 million Canadians, and countless millions of foreigners who believe the US government did it?

Antigovernment protesters seize 12 private radio stations

Protesters including striking school teachers in southern Mexico seized 12 private radio stations today after unidentified assailants shot up a government-owned station already under the demonstrators’ control.

http://www.cpj.org/news/2006/americas/mexico21aug06na.html

Why aren't we organizing this kind of action in the US? ... And I'm really talking about our public radio stations, but the Mexicans took over both Public and Private stations. Damn!

I tried to organize citizens in my hometown to protest the 'public' National Propaganda Radio station run by agents and/or useful idiots- but the anti-war 'leaders' (who have been in this small town for years longer than me, and they know everyone) who "know about 9/11" - yet all they want to do is organize a useless Saturday afternoon march!

When I brought up the importance of the radio and reaching more people than the 50 at the march... they told me: "never going to happen." And the rest of the crowd was all too happy to follow the leaders... the republicans aren't the only sheep in America.

How about 911bloggers? How about us? Do we have it in us to take the message to the next level, by marching on and possibly taking over tv and radio stations? If nothing else, we'd be informing/shaming the tv news crew, etc.

New WTC 7 Photos?

Perhaps this was posted before, but here are some previously unseen photos of WTC 7 and surrounding area during the fires.
They don't show anything new about WTC 7 itself, but it does reveal more about how extensive the fires and damage were to some surrounding buildings, which did NOT collpase. There are also a couple of "no-planer" debunking photos:

The Liquid Bomb Hoax: The Larger Implications

The Liquid Bomb Hoax: The Larger Implications

by James Petras

August 25, 2006

The charges leveled by the British, US and Pakistani regimes that they uncovered a major bomb plot directed against nine US airlines is based on the flimsiest of evidence, which would be thrown out of any court, worthy of its name.

An analysis of the current state of the investigation raises a series of questions regarding the governments’ claims of a bomb plot concocted by 24 Brits of Pakistani origin.

The arrests were followed by the search for evidence, as the August 12, 2006 Financial Times states: “The police set about the mammoth task of gathering evidence of the alleged terrorist bomb plot yesterday.” (FT, August 12/, 2006) In other words, the arrests and charges took place without sufficient evidence -- a peculiar method of operation -- which reverses normal investigatory procedures in which arrests follow the “monumental task of gathering evidence.” If the arrests were made without prior accumulation of evidence, what were the bases of the arrests?

The government search of financial records and transfers turned up no money trail despite the freezing of accounts. The police search revealed limited amounts of savings, as one would expect from young workers, students and employees from low-income immigrant families.
