An Interview with Joan Mellen - Oct. 4th, 2008

(Last weekend, I traveled to the Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA, to attend the Making Sense of 60s conference. On Saturday, I had a chance to speak with author Joan Mellen about Jim Garrison, and the pioneering work he did revealing Oswald's links to the CIA. Mellen has authored two books on Jim Garrison. The first, A Farewell to Justice (2005), won the critical acclaim of such JFK researchers as Gaeton Fonzi and Gary Aguilar, and director Oliver Stone. It focused on Garrison's JFK investigation and the Trial of Clay Shaw. Mellen has now followed up with a prequel bio of Garrison, Jim Garrison: His Life and Times - The Early Years. Throughout this short interview, 9/11 researchers should be able to see parallels between what they are doing, and what has been experienced by JFK researchers.)


Joan, why did you feel that there was a need for a Garrison bio?

The reason I had the prequel published is that many people didn't understand Jim Garrison's motivation. Why would he investigate the Kennedy assassination? Why would he risk his political career? Why would he give up his entire political career just for this? What did he get out of it?

It must be that he's covering up for the mafia... it must be that he's getting paid... it must be something. So, the book is a biography of Jim Garrison's life apart from the assassinations investigation, and is meant to answer that question.

Many people were introduced to Jim Garrison by Oliver Stone's JFK. Did it seem like the real Jim Garrison to you, up on the screen?

It didn't. However, Oliver Stone created a marvelous film, I think. He did an extraordinary thing, and he too took a tremendous risk, he risked his entire career as a film director, and suffered for years as a result of it. Stone's film is about the investigation, much more than it is about Jim Garrison the man, so it didn't really matter. I asked Stone the question, is this really Jim Garrison? Because I know things about Garrison's life that are not in this film... and Stone said, 'Well, I could have added 15 minutes about his life...' but it didn't make any difference, what counts is the dynamic of the investigation in that film, and also how it all played out in the city of New Orleans.

“The United States is bankrupt and is essentially
in the hands of its creditors. The Refunding Program,
which should have been kick-started in June 2006,
will address and rectify this state of affairs,
providing both immediate and long-term relief
to the American people and the whole world.”

A Review of Jason Bermas’s Fabled Enemies- Jeremy R. Hammond / October 11th, 2008- Dissident Voice

A Review of Jason Bermas’s Fabled Enemies

by Jeremy R. Hammond / October 11th, 2008

Fabled Enemies a new documentary video that challenges the official version of 9/11, is the latest in the ever-expanding list of films and videos dealing with the topic, which have varied greatly in worth. Though not without flaws, the video is a refreshing change of course from a great many of the less valuable ones that focused mainly on the collapses of the World Trade Center buildings. While touching briefly on the collapse of building 7, the documentary mostly approaches the issue from a different angle by reviewing some of the great amount of other evidence that the official story of the events of that day are a mere legend and that the U.S. government has gone to great lengths to cover up the truth.

Are we being played?

Some folks in the 9/11 Truth Movement are being deceived and playing into the hands of the men behind the curtain. I have heard several people in the 9/11 Truth Movement say that they are leaving the 9/11 Truth movement in order to promote aspects surrounding our financial system. Others have also stated that they are now going to only focus on getting off the grid, only on self survival aspects.

The recent economic events, bailouts, and crashes on Wall Street have been the focus of tremendous media attention on the financial system. Do you think that all this hype is a result of “freedom of the press”? The recent sensationalism by the press is part of the planned agenda. Everybody and their dog is talking about what a mess and outrage this economic scene is. That is part of the plan. Similar to the subject of global warming, there is such a prolific amount of “true ideas” on the subject of money that the common person is overwhelmed with information, confusions, and apprehensions.

Doctor asks federal judge to issue restraining order stopping bailout bill

By Steve Gonzalez

EAST ST. LOUIS-A Belleville doctor is asking a federal judge to bar President George W. Bush from enforcing the congressionally-approved financial industry bailout bill.

Dr. Randy J. Jung filed the request for a restraining order Friday, arguing Congress and Bush exceeded their constitutional authority when passing H.R. 1424, otherwise known as the bailout bill.

Watch Chapter 4 of Hijacking Humanity - "911 Conspiracy and The Push Towards Final Global Consolidation." FREE in High Quality.

Hi, my name is Paul, and i created the film, Hijacking Humanity, wishing to give proper contextual understanding of the 911 attacks so that people who just can't get past that mental block of WHY it would be the Government/Intelligence Agencies/Corporacratic Rulers who are truly responsible instead of a small band of Islamic Extremists...

Please check out the 911 Chapter, the 4th section of the movie, entitled "911 Conspiracy and The Push Towards Final Global Consolidation."

I appreciate any and all feedback, criticism, questions, and comments... I know the whole movie isn't perfect, but since it was created pretty much by my lonesome, it really just represents my own personal viewpoint of the truth, nothing more, nothing less...

Silverstein: Pull it!

Warm greetings to all truthers!

The Larry Silverstein quote "pull it", has for long been pending as a confession of a controlled demolition, among us, and in several videos.
Even though it could be interpreted as demolition-slang, I believe it is not plausible enough to be presented as a confession.

When firefighters abandon a building (pull people out), they do use the term 'pull it'. But this is not all. I find it extremely implausible, that the firefighters should have been able to do it, concerning time, experience, expertise and option.

I see it as the only logical conclusion, that the firefighters did not have a role in the demolition of WTC7, but that it must have been caused by pre-placed explosives. As thus the words "pull it", in the conversation between Silverstein and the fire-chief, must have meant pulling firefighters out.

My plea to you, fellow truthers, is to drop arguements like that. It makes more damage to our credibility, than it helps.

Vive la revolution!

Clear evidence of video tampering with Pentagon films

Even with the tiny amount of video they released, they had to remove a few frames.

A nicely done frame by frame comparison. The soundtrack is really annoying, but the evidence is good.

Angled cut column explained.

The photo with the angled cut column has somehow taken on an almost mythical status amongst some people in the 9/11 movement. In this short video I explain that it's not evidence of thermite and how it could very well have been done by cleanup crews with a thermic lance.

So, let's look at some real evidence of explosives on the core columns. Gordon Ross' theory, in which concussion charges are placed against the welds of the thickest core columns, explains exactly what we see in the pile; column ends that are bent, broken and exploded. You can watch his presentation on YouTube (part 1, part 2, part 3).

Yes, the middle class will be destroyed. No, it's not an accident.

Economist and financial guru Karl Denninger has been railing for weeks about the lunacy of the bailout bill and the devastation it will bring to our financial markets.

Here's the key passage from Denninger's post on Market Ticker from Wednesday:

"Oil will collapse in price to $20/bbl. Unfortunately nobody will have any money to buy gasoline, or a car, so it won't matter. As in The Depression millions of automobiles will be scrapped after being abandoned by their owners for lack of insurance and registration fee money. Cheap scooters will become the dominant form of transportation for those with jobs, as they will be all most people can afford.
