September 18 - Economic Emergency & Bush Martial Rule
"They thought the carousel would continue for ever,
like all gamblers. And because they are all criminals,
they have no concept of the Rule of Law. On the contrary,
their model is Emile Dirkheim (1858-1917) who postulated
a corrupt environment in which criminal behaviour is the norm,
and adherence to the Rule of Law is considered eccentric,
stupid and pointless. It has come as a nasty shock to these
criminal operatives to find that they have been opposed
while they weren't looking. No, they were all too busy
with their filthy noses in the pigsty trough."

I've heard from many people and websites that people are not supporting the movement like they should. I hear this over and over again across the board. It's really a HUGE problem. They NEED our help!!!
Financial support is highly lacking. I know times are tough, but there are enough of us that, even if you can spare $10 per month actual hard cash money, it would go a long way toward making things move forward. (most people 'blow' quite a bit of money every month on candy and snacks and coffee drinks and sodas and that sort of thing) I don't understand why movements like for animals and the environment get so much financial support from their supporters, but we are not seeing that in our movement. (it makes us look bad)
DEBATE: WTC Controlled Demolition? Richard Gage, AIA, of AE911Truth.org versus Michael Shermer of Skeptic Magazine
(Scroll down for direct links to MP3 D/Ls)
Exciting on-air debate with Richard Gage, AIA, of Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth and Michael Shermer of Skeptic Magazine on Oakland's KKGN 960am radio this last Thursday, September 18th. Don't miss this one!!!
I argue that while the 9/11 Truth Movement has had many successes and innovations, it has also been limited by it's sole purpose being the propagation of a narrative. The goals, strategy, and tactics of our activism should be seriously reconceptualized. The prevailing culture of the Truth Movement has become insular and needs to branch out into other revolutionary traditions which are already well established and have their own unique dialogues. I suggest that our activism should be reconceived as strictly a media movement rather than being the revolution itself so long as our sole goal is to spread information, and that Truth activists should participate in workshops for Non-Violent Direct Action.
(b) "Catastrophic Emergency" means any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions
THAT'S ALL I AM GOING TO SAY ABOUT THAT.
After spending September 11, 2008 at Ground Zero and engaging various members of the public on subject of 9/11, I thought to share a few common points of informal debate that frequently ensued on the street.
It is interesting to note that logical hazards can occur on either side of deliberation and that a refined understanding of an issue is traditionally considered to be the prime objective.
Those more educated in polemics, please feel free to correct and inform the thread. Please also note that I’ve marked arguments as [counter and (mutual per 9/11 skepticism.
Finally, although I believe our discussions are of civic and intellectual value, it would seem that that the most effective method of understanding the events of 9/11 is through a trial subject to due process in court.
Definition: formal method of suppositional argument, including rules and appeals to reach agreement on an issue
Is this a new claim about how the hijackers were identified? Richard Clarke said the FBI identified them by the airline passenger lists.
Former Joint Chiefs chairman remembers 9/11
by 1st Lt. Brad Kimberly
Air University Public Affairs
9/16/2008 - MAXWELL AIR FORCE BASE, Ala. (AFPN) -- Sept. 11 was a day of remembrance across the country as Americans reflected on the events that occurred that day in 2001.
Gen. Richard B. Myers, the now-retired chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, traveled to Maxwell to speak at the Air Force Wargaming Institute. While here he shared his unique perspective of what happened that day and offered his outlook on the continuing war on terrorism.
At the time, General Myers was serving as the vice-chairman of the Joint Chiefs, but recently had been nominated by President George W. Bush for chairman. That nomination kept the general away from the Pentagon as the attacks began.
9-11 Commission staffers John Farmer, John Azzarello and Miles Kara, in a September 13, 2008 article for the New York Times ("Real Heroes, Fake Stories" http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/14/opinion/14farmer.html?pagewanted=1&_r=1&em), state:
"Contrary to the testimony of retired Gen. Larry Arnold, who on 9/11 was the commander of continental defense for the North American Aerospace Defense Command, fighters were not scrambled that morning to meet the threat posed by United 93. In fact, the fighters were sent up in response to an unrelated and mistaken report that General Arnold and others had not disclosed to the commission. Flight 93 hadn’t even been hijacked when the planes were ordered scrambled, and General Arnold’s command found out the plane was hijacked only after it had crashed. The authorization to shoot it down came after it had crashed, and was never passed on to the pilots."
But C-Span aired a recent speech by General Victor Renuart, USNORTHCOM chief, who said the following:
