Let me cut to the chase. The biggest robbery in the history of this country is taking place as you read this. Though no guns are being used, 300 million hostages are being taken. Make no mistake about it: After stealing a half trillion dollars to line the pockets of their war-profiteering backers for the past five years, after lining the pockets of their fellow oilmen to the tune of over a hundred billion dollars in just the last two years, Bush and his cronies -- who must soon vacate the White House -- are looting the U.S. Treasury of every dollar they can grab. They are swiping as much of the silverware as they can on their way out the door.
No matter what they say, no matter how many scare words they use, they are up to their old tricks of creating fear and confusion in order to make and keep themselves and the upper one percent filthy rich. Just read the first four paragraphs of the lead story in last Monday's New York Times and you can see what the real deal is:
"Even as policy makers worked on details of a $700 billion bailout of the financial industry, Wall Street began looking for ways to profit from it.
Democratic and Republican congress members are sounding the alarm: tyranny is here.
- Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) says:
“I have been thrown out of more meetings in this capital in the last 24 hours than I ever thought possible, as a duly elected representative of 825,000 citizens of north Texas.”
Burgess asks the Speaker of the House to post the bailout bill on the internet for at least 24 hours instead of passing the largest piece of legislation in US financial history in the “dark of night.”
Rep. Burgess’ says, “Mr. Speaker I understand we are under martial law as declared by the speaker last night.”
I am an older college student. The Texas A & M - Commerce campus newspaper, "The East Texan", asked me late one night if I could submit an article as a guest columnist. The article was due the next day. I pounded the keys till past midnight, giving the article to the Editor who was still at her post.
The paper printed the hard copy on September 25th, 2008 with the article in the middle of page 2. The online edition is now available. "9/11 truth movement continues to grow" Here it is: http://media.www.theeasttexan.com/media/storage/paper1164/news/2008/09/25/Opinion/911-Truth.Movement.Continues.To.Grow-345...
Anyone can place a comment. I welcome comments. It will give the article a long life. (Please do NOT start into esoteric stuff about the NWO or subjects that are way beyond the public's common understanding. Just simple, easy to grasp statements are best.)
[This may rub Robert Gates the wrong way. Gates is the current Secretary of Defense. After leaving the CIA (26 years), Gates became president of Texas A&M University. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Gates
A $10,000 9/11 CHALLENGE TO ARIZONA COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES
What might he know, if this is for real?
Why and why now? Good questions.
I spent four years in federal prison. During that time I received dozens of requests for information and interviews on the subjects of Rudy Giuliani and the Giuliani Administration. Most were from news outlets: magazines, newspapers and television. Some came from people wanting to write about Rudy and wanting new information or to confirm existing facts. A few were from average Joes and Janes wanting some question answered. How they got my name or why they were writing me, I have no idea.
With one exception, and that was just days before I left prison, I never responded to a single request. Sure there were probably hundreds of times that I read an article, heard a newscast or saw a commentator pontificate on some point relating to Rudy Giuliani with which I wanted to respond, elaborate or correct. But I never did.
I don't know if everybody reading this believes in evolution, but let's say for a minute that it is true. Or at the very least God has put us here to evolve. The human species has dominated and survived as it has evolved over millions of years. During this great span of time many species have ceased to exist including the one's we have destroyed. Through all of this evolutionary activity, humanity has survived everything the Earth has thrown at it. We even have survived the cruel ideas acted upon us from our own imaginations. We kill, but we grow back. We kill again, but we grow back. The Earth has tried with every trick it has including the human mind to stifle us and possibly destroy us, but this is the very essence of evolution. We still exist. Why would anybody alive today think that they could devise a better plan of extinction for humanity than what has been wrought upon us thus far. It is futile.
Pass it around if you think its worth it...

The Pentagon has ordered that raids on suspected terrorist targets within Pakistan be stepped up to pressurise al-Qaeda leaders and distract them from preparing attacks on American targets elsewhere.
"The aim is to disrupt their scope for planning and keep their leaders on the move so that it is more difficult for them to co-ordinate complicated plots," a senior US intelligence official told The Sunday Telegraph.
The operations launched from neighbouring Afghanistan have led to sharply increased tensions with Pakistan's armed forces since President George W.Bush recently authorised assaults involving "boots on the ground" without prior approval by Pakistan's government, a supposed US ally.
If the Government should have any hand in the control of the Home Mortgage business they should simply control:
A. The types of loans allowed by banks.
B. The maximum interest rate allowed.
C. The qualifications for those loans.
This is the control that they should have maintained from the beginning. Now they have allowed bad business to lead us into this compromised position. They know exactly how these things happen and should have done something to curb this situation. That is unless this was all engineered. I think we know the answer to that question.
I am here to ask for your suggestions on a solution to this problem that will rectify this situation. I have the beginnings to a plan and would welcome any ideas.
If we are ever going to take back this country we are going to have to show our own resolve. Create a means by which the people can have a say or a guiding hand in positive solutions. If the people are the ones creating the laws and legislation we won't need the government to do it for us.

For Grover "Drown Government in the Bathtub" Norquist, this bailout deal will work out very well. At a proposed cost of $4,780 per taxpayer, it'll further the David Stockman strategy of so indebting us that the next president won't have the luxury of even thinking of new social spending (expanding health care, social security, education, infrastructure, etc.); taxes will even have to be raised just to pay for the bailout. It'll debase our currency, driving up commodity prices and interest rates, which will benefit the Investor Class while further impoverishing the pesky Middle Class, rendering them less prone to protest (because they're so busy working trying to pay off their debt). It'll create stagflation for at least the next half decade, which can be blamed on Democrats who currently control Congress and, should Obama be elected, be blamed on him.
A new Google group for 9/11 truthers, especially those in Utah, but all are welcome.
I wish i knew how to paste this video on my blog. I still haven't figured out how to do it. Sorry.
Here is the You tube link.
This should be shown prime time on ALL tv channels. The one thing i found compelling is this.
The TRUTH is easy to understand !
Just see for yourselves. Please forward this to everyone you know.
Not really, but it's as good a theory as what NIST proposed. They can find the Ice Age at Ground Zero, but they can't find evidence of unexploded thermite/thermate or the traces of its use?
NYC Trade Center dig exposes Ice Age landscape
Mon Sep 22, 5:19 PM ET
NEW YORK - Crews excavating the World Trade Center site this summer for the foundations of a new skyscraper have uncovered features carved into the bedrock by glaciers about 20,000 years ago, including a 40-foot-deep pothole.
Exposing the solid rock beneath at the ground zero site in lower Manhattan is critical for supporting what will be Tower 4 of the new World Trade Center, being built by Silverstein Properties.
"You want to make sure you're not perching something on a ledge," said Anthony Pontecorvo, a supervising structural engineer at Mueser Rutledge Consulting Engineers, which is working on the project.
While removing the overlying soil is an engineering necessity, the digging has given scientists a rare window into the deep past and formations like the huge pothole.
Statement Of September 11th Advocates Regarding The Release Of The NIST Final Draft Of Collapse Of WTC7
For Immediate Release
September 26, 2008
NIST has finally released its long awaited investigative report regarding the collapse of World Trade Center 7. WTC 7 was the third building in the World Trade Center Complex to collapse at 5:20 PM on September 11, 2001. However, this building was not hit by an airplane.
As family members of 9/11 victims, we were extremely interested in the findings of this report. We had hoped that NIST’s report would serve to explain the cause of a total collapse of a conventional steel building and be able to refute the rampant conspiracy theories. We also hoped that this report, in conjunction with NIST’s final reports on WTC 1 and 2, would offer recommendations for improved building and fire codes to ensure public safety in ALL buildings going forward.
While we feel that technical experts should review, critique and replicate the findings within this report, we also feel that we must express our concerns based on public comments by NIST regarding their findings.
Over the past seven years, the Families of the 9/11 Victims have been repeatedly told by fire experts, engineers and architects that we should NOT FOCUS our efforts on advocating for building and fire code changes based on the collapse of the WTC 1 and 2 towers. We were continuously reminded that the crashing of airplanes into buildings was a unique event. Additionally, we were told that the design and construction of WTC Towers 1 and 2 was unique and that there were no other buildings of that particular height or design in the world. We were repeatedly told that the key was WTC 7 since this building was of conventional design and height, yet it too collapsed without the unique event of an airplane striking it.
