High-Rise Safety Initiative in the News:
NY Post Publishes Gossip Piece on PR Firm's Association with the Campaign
Huffington Post Is Reminded We're Not Giving Up
One week after Crain's New York Business kicked off news coverage of the High-Rise Safety Initiative, the New York Post (the rag of record in NYC) published a piece this morning ridiculing Sheinkopf Communications for its association with the High-Rise Safety Initiative. We are disappointed, though not surprised, to see the Post's mindless angle on this very important issue. But we thank the Post for informing hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers about our campaign. Also, since our last update, the Huffington Post published an article commending our persistence.

The original article can be read here:
All over the country this Independence Day, 9/11 Truth activists will be handing out a new brochure: "9/11 Truth: Good for America!" at Independence Day parades, picnics, and fireworks displays! We've got a patriotic message to share with our fellow Americans, and we are not shying away from our task this year. Join us in this nationwide public education effort!
The beautifully patriotic brochure comes complete with all positive benefits of the 9/11 Truth message — along with an insert highlighting the key evidence at the World Trade Center.
Activists can download the artwork at no cost and print it locally — either in color or in black-and-white, and either with the insert or without. Local groups can also customize the back section with information on your own 9/11 Truth group!

What in the world is the FBI up to at Guantanamo? Why is it harassing the defense team of the accused 9/11 mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and his alleged accomplices?
The FBI is hip-deep in yet another dubious activity but, this time, even the not-so-adventurous New York Times is kinda-sorta on the trail. The self-proclaimed “paper of record” has produced several articles, albeit confusing ones, on the mysterious doings of our much-vaunted national police force.
What should be made clear is that by connecting a few dots, one can make out a major—even explosive—story hiding just out of plain sight. This story has a lot to do with the larger pattern of FBI misbehavior and points to at least one of the reasons why we never get better, more complete answers about the events of 9/11.

We show, via a massive (N = 689,003) experiment on Facebook, that emotional states can be transferred to others via emotional contagion, leading people to experience the same emotions without their awareness. We provide experimental evidence that emotional contagion occurs without direct interaction between people (exposure to a friend expressing an emotion is sufficient), and in the complete absence of nonverbal cues.
Emotional states can be transferred to others via emotional contagion, leading people to experience the same emotions without their awareness. Emotional contagion is well established in laboratory experiments, with people transferring positive and negative emotions to others. Data from a large real-world social network, collected over a 20-y period suggests that longer-lasting moods (e.g., depression, happiness) can be transferred through networks [Fowler JH, Christakis NA (2008) BMJ 337:a2338], although the results are controversial. In an experiment with people who use Facebook, we test whether emotional contagion occurs outside of in-person interaction between individuals by reducing the amount of emotional content in the News Feed. When positive expressions were reduced, people produced fewer positive posts and more negative posts; when negative expressions were reduced, the opposite pattern occurred. These results indicate that emotions expressed by others on Facebook influence our own emotions, constituting experimental evidence for massive-scale contagion via social networks. This work also suggests that, in contrast to prevailing assumptions, in-person interaction and nonverbal cues are not strictly necessary for emotional contagion, and that the observation of others’ positive experiences constitutes a positive experience for people.

Mythbusters 9/11 parody: Stew's Conspiracy Funhouse
Published on Jun 8, 2014
Why do the Mythbusters refuse to cover the topic of 9/11? Maybe because it would reveal the truth? Please be sure to click the links for more info on each topic.
Special thanks to the work of David Ray Griffin, Kevin Ryan, Jonathan Cole, Richard Gage, and all the AE911 Truth professionals! They showed me the Truth!
Also thanks to John Langseth for the opening piano music and Purge for the SCF theme music.
We hope you watch the other Conspiracy Funhouse videos and listen to the best of the Conspiracy Funhouse podcast on Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/conspiracyfunhouse
Douglas Valentine’sThe Phoenix Program is vital for understanding the history of terrorism and its role in political warfare. Few other historical accounts provide as much detail on how the U.S. government and the CIA began to use programs for counterterrorism to implement political policy through secretive, coldblooded actions. Understanding such history is critical to making sense of what is happening in our world today.

Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth needs your energy and your outrage over how the organization and the cause of 9/11 Truth were treated by the mainstream media last month.
Specifically, we're asking you to write a letter to CNN to let the station know how you feel about the recent installment of The Lead with Jake Tapper. The five-minute report dealt with the AE911Truth initiative to distribute our alternative brochures at the site of the newly opened National September 11 Memorial and Museum, which we attended. You can send your letter to CNN via this link on its web site.
For background on the AE911Truth reaction to the CNN report, read the article currently posted on our website.

9/11 conspiracy group could force its way onto ballot
Andrew J. Hawkins
June 25, 2014
For years, 9/11 conspiracy theorists have been marginalized if not utterly ignored, producing blog posts and online films that gain little traction with the general public.
But a small nonprofit dedicated to uncovering the “truth” behind the collapse of the World Trade Center buildings is making a big push to get its issue in front of millions of voters. The group has gathered tens of thousands of petition signatures and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in an effort to force the city to investigate the destruction of 7 World Trade Center during the attack 13 years ago.
Federal judge rules U.S. no-fly list violates Constitution
(Reuters) - The U.S. government's no-fly list banning people accused of links to terrorism from commercial flights violates their constitutional rights because it gives them no meaningful way to contest that decision, a federal judge ruled on Tuesday.
The U.S. Supreme Court Is Marching in Lockstep with the Police State
By John W. Whitehead
June 23, 2014
“[I]f the individual is no longer to be sovereign, if the police can pick him up whenever they do not like the cut of his jib, if they can ‘seize’ and ‘search’ him in their discretion, we enter a new regime. The decision to enter it should be made only after a full debate by the people of this country.”—U.S. Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas
The U.S. Supreme Court was intended to be an institution established to intervene and protect the people against the government and its agents when they overstep their bounds. Yet as I point out in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, Americans can no longer rely on the courts to mete out justice. In the police state being erected around us, the police and other government agents can probe, poke, pinch, taser, search, seize, strip and generally manhandle anyone they see fit in almost any circumstance, all with the general blessing of the courts.
Whether it’s police officers breaking through people’s front doors and shooting them dead in their homes or strip searching innocent motorists on the side of the road, these instances of abuse are continually validated by a judicial system that kowtows to virtually every police demand, no matter how unjust, no matter how in opposition to the Constitution.
Goebbels, The Master of Lies (RT Documentary)
“Let me control the media and I will turn any nation into a herd of pigs” – Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels turned words into a weapon of mass destruction. Dangerous lies spread by the Nazi regime lead to brutal murders and cruelty that continue to shake minds.
Dick Cheney: “the next time, it will be with far deadlier weapons than airline tickets and box cutters.”
'This Week': Dick Cheney
Appearing on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos, former Vice President Dick Cheney plainly stated that there are much bigger problems than are going on in Iraq.
Using a recent Rand Corporation poll, Cheney listed all of the other terrorist organizations that are popping up around the globe who are as dangerous as ISIS, if not more, especially those with nuclear capabilities.
There’s been a 58% increase in the number of groups like al Qaeda — Salafi-Jihadists, and it stretches from west Africa all across north Africa, east Africa, through the Middle East all the way around to Indonesia — a doubling of the number of terrorists out there.
I worry about Pakistan. Just a couple of weeks ago, in Pakistan, the Taliban — the same group we just released five of the leaders of from Guantanamo — raided Karachi Airport. Why do I care about that? Well, Pakistan is unique in that it has a significant inventory of nuclear weapons.
Just Keep Going, You Got Nothing To Lose
a really beautiful video, makes me cry
what u said at the beginning is how i've felt many times also...
the elite class want us all to be divided against each other, to view the other as the enemy and/or our competitor, rather than to love each other as our brother and sister
encouraging us through media to not smile, not make eye contact, not to communicate. wear dark sunglasses so can't see each others eyes, wear headphones so can't hear each other and Nature either
for example, public announcement/scrolling text repeated over and over to report suspicious persons or baggage, and that we are subject to random searches, blah blah blah
these so called elite think they got us right where they want us, alone, and plugged into their mind control feed, to keep us in constant state of fear, since they themselves live in fear of losing their power
they don't understand that their power is an illusion, just as the fear they manufacture
anyhow, we can know the tree by the fruit (or lack of it, in case of so-called leaders and elite class)
and we are more motivated by love than fear
and we're all waking up
Thank you Luke
