9/11 Truth Renaissance

A profound shift is taking place in consciousness and technology. Activists are hard pressed to keep up with the latest tools for video-blogging, podcasting, DVD duplication, and an array of new technologies facilitating communications between people that were geographically and economically prohibitive when I was a child. The new technologies have the potential of the printing press, photography, radio, and television to shake up the way people see the world and to shift the power structures in society. While traditional newspapers and magazines are struggling to maintain economic viability and credibility, creative new synergies are taking place in cyberspace and in the production of films and music designed to inform, enlighten, and inspire with messages thatwhich strongly challenge the mainstream media’s fabricated reality that is contrived to serve imperial corporate interests.

411 0n 911 Demanding 9/11 Truth and impeachment

While the morning rain and the threat of rain prevented “Annie and the Vets” from providing music at the 4/11/2007 afternoon rally, a substantial crowd gathered in the last-minute sunshine on Lytton Plaza in downtown Palo Alto, amidst a giant replica of the flawed 9/11 Commission Report, two smoking towers labeled Constitution and Bill of Rights, many colorful banners calling for impeachment, and a huge “Deception Dollar” banner.

The first marches demanding a Congressional Investigation into 9/11 were held in Palo Alto in January 2002, followed by further marches in January of 2003 demanding “Pre-Emptive Impeachment.” Marches for impeachment are now a monthly occurrence and converged yesterday with a monthly 9/11 Truth action. The rally began with a bit of history and Congresswoman Eshoo’s response to the previous rally on March 14th. Eshoo wrote:

New Movie: The Reflecting Pool

One of the biggest challenges of the 9/11 Truth Movement has been to get the basic facts about 9/11 into the mainstream media or general consciousness. People who go to see documentaries are vastly fewer in number than those who seek entertainment and distraction. Since I became an activist, only after seeing a film which disturbed me (JFK) and doing some research on the CIA, I have always thought that films are one of the best tools to raise awareness, and we have continually tried to produce better and better films- mainly documentaries. Late last night, Chris Emery, who made a film about the Oklahoma City bombing, sent me a link to a trailer for a new 9/11 film, which is not a documentary-

Former Air Traffic Controller Speaks Out,

[GW's comment: a must-hear 1/2 hour interview with the air traffic controller is here]

The First Fifteen Minutes of September 11th -
Former Air Traffic Controller Robin Hordon speaks out
on 9/11, NORAD and what should have happened on 9/11.
By Jeremy Baker

Within three hours of the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, Robin Hordon knew it was an inside job. He had been an Air Traffic Controller (ATC) for eleven years before Reagan fired him and hundreds of his colleagues after they went on strike in the eighties. Having handled in-flight emergencies and two actual hijackings in his career, he is well qualified to comment on what NORAD should have been able to achieve in its response to the near simultaneous hijacking of four domestic passenger carriers on the morning of September 11th, 2001.

Carol Brouillet Interview at 9/11 Accountability Conference, New Radio Show

Citizen's Advocate interviewed me at the 9/11 Accountability Conference and posted it recently at .

I also will be the host of a new 2 hour Radio Show on Monday Eveneings 7-9 pm (Pacific Time) on "We the People Radio Network." If there are any graphic artists who could help me with banners, or internet savvy folks who could help with a companion website- I'd appreciate it. The show will be "Questioning War- Organizing Resistance" and will challenge the reigning military paradigm, by exposing the lies used to trick people into supporting wars, as well as the deceptions used by the powerful for their own enrichment, and at the expense of people and planet. I want to highlight the courageous examples of people challenging the lies, war, and successfully mobilizing resistance to tyranny, oppression, and raising human consciousness. I'd like to locate our most articulate speakers and courageous organizers, and could use help from the 9/11 Truth Movement.

Truth Versus the Lie

Reflections Inspired by 9/11 and American Empire:
Muslims, Christians, and Jews Speak Out (Volume II)
Edited by Kevin Barrett, John Cobb, Jr. and Sandra Lubarsky

9/11 and American Empire: Muslims, Christians, and Jews Speak Out (Volume II) builds upon Volume I-- 9/11 and American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out-- expanding upon the evidence that 9/11 is a lie, that the foundational myth clouding the facts was constructed in service to the global American empire building project.

While there are obvious differences in the three religions represented in Volume II, they share a common thread, origins, prophets, and a belief in one supreme deity. Reading each chapter, and hearing each distinct voice, one can see beyond the differences and appreciate the ideas, the concern, that they hold in common. At the same time, each faith is confronted by different challenges in the face of 9/11, the obvious propaganda point of 9/11 being to create a division and a clash of civilizations, to demonize the “other” and elevate the goodness, nobility and righteousness of the “Christian response.”

Norman Finkelstein spoke at Stanford University recently, and clearly, calmly, articulated the history of the Israel/Palestine conflict, the human rights violations against Israeli and Palestinian children, international law regarding the situation, and the consensus among historians and human rights organizations on the record. The conflict seems readily solvable given the facts and international law, but a solution doesn’t appear to be “realistic” according to the media. Finkelstein argued that it should be possible to have a just, lasting peace and a resolution to the conflict, on the basis of truth and justice. This is the hope of most people in the world, but the obstacle continues to be “the proliferation of distortion masquerading as history,” the veil of contrived controversy, a “media campaign alleging a global outbreak of anti-Semitism.” Finkelstein received a standing ovation from the packed auditorium. His analysis, his belief in the power of truth, reality, international law and justice to overcome falsehoods and propaganda, and to resolve conflict, could also be applied to the issue of 9/11.

David Ray Griffin has taken on the task of meticulously examining the official 9/11 Commission Report and chronicling 115 of its most glaring omissions and distortions, dubbing the entire work a “571-page lie.” In 9/11 and American Empire, Volume I, his position is buttressed by reputable scientists and professors, who substantiate his analysis with basic facts that have not been well reported in the mainstream press. The latest film on David Ray Griffin, 9/11: The Myth and the Reality, which carefully explains what myths are, how they are used, and why the official story is “myth” rather than a “true and complete account of the events of 9/11,” prompted The Ashland Daily Tidings, the first American newspaper to pen an editorial on Veteran’s Day with an eloquent demand for 9/11 Truth:

“We call on our colleagues to join us in asking questions.

Crashing the Party

Crashing the Party

For all their quibbling, the Democrats and Republicans have much in common- their support of the “War on Terrorism,” “the PATRIOT Act, “Homeland Security,” American military/corporate dominance of the planet. Both parties have gone along with the Bush policies that have severely attacked our Constitution, shredded the Bill of Rights, instigated wars, institutionalized torture, suspended habeas corpus, granted Bush royal powers to label, detain, kill anyone he deems a threat, and even use the US military against the American people.

While polls show a growing number of Americans aren’t buying the lies, favor ending the wars, and favor impeachment, the media isn’t revealing that there is any genuine opposition party to the unending “War on Terrorism.”

However a Copernican revolution in consciousness, has been growing for a long time now, and was catalyzed by that pivotal day in American history- September 11th, 2001. That searing, defining moment is being “redefined” by the diverse, growing 9/11 Truth Movement, including candidates who are championing impeachment, a genuine investigation of 9/11, and peace. The pro-war, pro-corporate press has more or less ignored or attacked them, but they are crashing the parties, and communicating directly to the public via creative, emerging technologies, and directly- in the streets.
