If this is it.... Part 6 - Jenny's Eagle [This 6 part series was written in its entirety before Part 1 was published.] Here's forty shillings on the drum For those who'll volunteer to come To 'list and fight the foe today. Over the hills and far away. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_Imperial_Eagle
If this is it... “...If this is it , Please let me know...” ~mixed feelings re:9/11 truth Part 5- “Killtown”, Lew Rockwell and the Ludwig von Mises Institute Killtown as anyone can see from his yahoo profile came on the scene in March of 2002, literally months after 9/11. http:// profiles.yahoo.com/killtown Before that he was a active in the Libertarian Party, and even before that he admits to being active in the Greens: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9tk0H-EDZ4 So it isn't completely fair to assume his 9/11truth involvement was phony; clearly he was interested in politics before. But how genuine was his previous interest? Its speculation, but switching from Green to Libertarian is a bit odd. It sounds more like he was a Green because of the hot chicks and drugs, and the Libertarian switch was discovering a conservative culture that he could be comfortable with and still get hot chicks and drugs. Again this is speculation, but it would explain why “KT” finds right-wing nutters comfortable company—to him that is normal.
“...Girl don't lie, and tell me that you need me
Girl don't cry, and tell me nothing's wrong
I'll be alright one way or another...”
Part 4 – Nazis among us—the grain of truth
Its a "debunker" cliche the 9/11 truth movement is full of Holocaust deniers and Nazis. It's a lie, but a lie with a basis of truth: Nazis sure do seem to want "join up" and spread the word "the Jews did it!" I say Nazis, but this includes people who aren't actually Nazis but, either don't mind working with them, OR who share the same agenda. I should say “agendas” because where Nazis sympathies lie there appear to be several:
1: the “oppression” of the “white” race by blacks, Jews, Mexicans, Irish Catholics—whom everyone else consider white/of European decent, but these folks never let facts get in their way. For that matter most European Jews are “white”, that is of Polish, German, Russian decent—yep, those pesky facts ....
2: WASP Zionists who are from the Christian Right and have a delusional idea they can bring about the Rapture by mucking about in the Middle East.
“...Now you're pretending
That it's not ending
You'll say anything to avoid a fight...”

If this is it... “...Girl don't try to make up phony reasons I'd rather leave than never believe...” ~mixed feelings re:911truth Part 2: Cults, cultures, LaRouche and 9/11truth The words cult and culture have a common Latin root, cultus :care, adoration, from colere to cultivate. Their definitions have some over lap: http://www.merriam-webster.com/netdict/culture Relevant definitions:
c : the set of shared attitudes, values, goals, and practices that characterizes an institution or organization d : the set of values, conventions, or social practices associated with a particular field, activity, or societal characteristic
http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/cult Relevant definition:
“...Girl don't lie, just to save my feelings
Girl don't cry, and tell me nothing's wrong..."

Part 1-Neutered Memes—The Matrix, 1984 and 911truth
This is the first of several parts of subcultural analysis overlooked re-911truth. In this case, not just overlooked, but twisted in meaning and now so divorced from its roots the once rich memes are meaningless. And for those rolling their eyes at "9/11 truth", much of what follows applies to anti-war activism generally.
When evil stalks upon the land
I'll nyther hold nor stay me' hand
But fight to win a better day
Over the hills and far away..
February of this year a video was posted to Youtube by Weezula titled:
Mark Humphrey is NOT the Harley Guy
Reads like bit of a Buddhist koan--who the hell was saying Mark Humphrey was?
In the comments are clues. Fact you don't need to look much farther than the first comment:
"...Listen close to everybody’s heart
And hear that breaking sound
Hopes and dreams are shattering apart
And crashing to the ground
I cannot believe my eyes
How the world’s filled with filth and lies
but it’s plain to see evil inside of me
is on the rise..."
And thats where many of our heads/hearts have been for seven years since 911. Not "evil" exactly, but angry. First at the attacks, then finding we were fooled. Anger, and its still there.
Don't get me wrong. I've no problem with healthy anger. Like many "negative" emotions, it tells you when something's wrong. And gives you energy to do something about it. But if your anger's not informed--or directed at the wrong target--you'll make more problems than you'll solve. And needless to say you'll be the most malleable puppet for anyone who wants to keep you from applying your anger effectively.
We say we understand "divide and conquer" but we don't really understand the subtlety until its experienced. We've seen the progression on every side of every political debate:
We believe X to be true
We must expose X
Anyone who doesn't believe X is trying to thwart us
There is NO excuse to threaten, harass or attack 911 family members or 911 witnesses in the name of "research" or "patriotism"
This is how it is from here on out: anyone acting like a threat to family members, 911 witnesses or activists will be treated as such.
Want to make death threats? Fine we'll take you dead seriously and take steps accordingly.
Want to harass and threaten people? Fine, we'll report it to the appropriate authorities accordingly.
Want to make attempts to invade the privacy of 911 witnesses, family members and activists? Fine we'll document it and report it accordingly.
And our first example will be our Troy from West Virginia.
Without revealing his full name, address or phone number--all of which are in my possession-- the following is the contact information for the police and sheriff departments that have jurisdiction where he lives:

Or w2qrx. I can never get the "q" and "2" placement straight. Which is a sad look out for me considering I'm supposed to be part of this "organization".
I apologize in advance for the excessive use of "" you are about to encounter. As Nicolas at Truthmove has pointed out, almost every term these people use should be in quotes as they are either misapplied, inaccurate, or, especially in the case of "WQ2RX" made up whole cloth.
You may remember "WQ2RX" being bandied about in the aftermath of the Kennebunkport fiasco where Webster Tarpley accused Cindy Sheehan, Dalia Wasfi, Ann Wright and Jamillia El Sharif of being "appalling liars" and "wretched individuals" . If you've blissfully forgotten, here's a reminder like:
What you pick up over a pint or two...
Recently some sites have been bombarded by individuals or groups who don't seem to understand why good behavior is just as important as whatever you're trying to promote with your fellow activists. Examining the Prisoner's Dilemma might help clarify some points for everyone, not just the misbehaving.
The Prisoner's Dilemma is a problem presented in game theory that explores the risks and rewards of loyalty and betrayal. It can help explain to those behind the curve why good behavior is important for success.
"Truth Squadding" for the uninitiated, is "Bird Dogging" in 911 activism. "Bird dogging" is a journalist term for an organized coordinated attempt to get a public figure on record about a position:
I. What is Bird-dogging?
That's it for 911Truth and me.
Or should I say 911 "twoof"? Today it all became clear--in spite of the gratuitous ad hominum attacks, straw man arguments, death threats, and being personally accused of being an agent --
or several agents--
or several people who might be agents or several other people--(I lost track of these people ages ago)
--I've decided that if you can't beat them, the only logical thing is to join them.
So this is it. As of now I'm an ex-twoofer. There is absolutely no reason not to believe the official story of 911 as originally told, pancakes and all, unless you are some sort of unpatriotic Al Qaida scum. And being a national of some other country besides the States is not an excuse, chums--the ONLY loyalty that counts is loyalty to the USA.
Whatever we think about leaders we choose, whatever we expect out of them --or ourselves when we take on that role--"whining" is not it. By "whining" we don't mean pointing out flaws while working on a solution. By "whining" we mean, when confronted with a problem that needs attention, instead of taking it seriously, the alleged "leader" proceeds to invent all sorts of excuses to NOT address or even acknowledge the problem.
If you haven't already, that is.

Jenny hasn't been around much between holiday madness, working on this, and my "naughty and nice" list---but that's a different blog. First a wee history lesson:
I did a bit of research on professional sock puppets. Many people from the “opposite side” of 911 sceptisism –such as Patrick Curley of Screw Loose Change,--- poo, poo the idea there is any organized opposition or disinfo operations, paid or otherwise, against 911 Truth. Pat is quoted as saying:
“For what it's worth I think Jenny's been basically right throughout this affair but like all kooks she mistakes some fellow kooks (Fetzer and Nico for example) for operatives.”
Here's Johnny Wave:
Word is there are forces at work to silence Johnny Wave.
Don't know about anyone else, but if I was still serving(yeah, I'm a veteran--no, I was not a colonel) I'd want to support a grass roots movement that had at it's heart the goal of stopping wars and thus reducing the chance my arms and legs might get blown off in combat.
From Jenny's diary~
Before I had reasons to suspect a psyop, I was thrown by the level of panic over what most of us on-line 9/11 veterans would call "dubious sources".
At TruthAction.org I started this thread:
"It's this bit that sticks with me after the hours I've wasted wading through the "Portland Nuclear Inquest" yahoo group:
Due to previous contacts with organized crime, I personally have no doubt that there is a plan to detonate a 10 kiloton nuclear device in North Portland.
No one credible talks like this. People who have "mafia" connections know better. Coppers know better. The only people who talk like this are people who've watched too many James Bond movies and are desperate for attention, OR people who think you're so gullible you'll swallow anything.
So I'm looking at the past people we used to laud --Fetzer, Haupt, Reynolds, Shayler--and my bullshit detector is going off.

What Twoofers Deserve:
...is a lovely hate blog, apparently dedicated to ME!
Thank you, thank you all so very much! Don't know what to say! This is *sniff* such a moving moment! So many people to thank, and so little time. We could start with the perpetrators of 9/11 and end with, I don't know--half the Internet 9/11 community--on both sides. Still, I am moved, overwhelmned, at this honor "Killtwoofers" bestows upon me.
Now, seriously, mates--what could his/her angle possibly be? I'm not going to stop passing out kickings or hunting trolls just because I'm the target of an on-line murder fantasy. Does that type of intimidation actually "intimidate" anyone? Anyone have simular experiences?
On a sobering note it does remind one some debunks are VERY imbalanced. Take care while we spread the truth, people.
Still, this is one for the record--LOL!
If you Google "Bush Flash" you get these results:
I found this over at Screw Loose:
Now before you groan--I hear groaning! Stop it!-- just take the time to consider, um...something. I forgot what I was going to say, thanks to all the groaning. Yes, they're wankers with no lives outside of "debunking" Loose Change" and any other Truther they stumble across. I should post "Sky is blue, grass is green" on their forum sometime--a "twoofer" said it, so it can't be true!
From Jenny's Diary~
I was reading a local rag called the "Asian Reporter" the other night and came across this cheerful*sarcasm*article:
Islamic hard-liners take aim at Indonesia’s secular traditions
By Robin McDowell
Associated Press Writer
JAKARTA, Indonesia — Women are jailed for being on the street alone after dark in parts of Indonesia, long held up as a beacon of moderate Islam. Gamblers are caned as punishment, Christian school-children are forced to wear headscarves, and a proposed law would sentence thieves to amputation of the hands.

There are no leaders at 911Blogger...
I seem to need to post this too often. Now I feel I must blog it because I suspect there is a campaign of disruption brewing that will make the November Troll wars and "Ronnie Mania" look like a stroll in the park. Go to these links and observe the dialogs:
Here an individual wanders all over the place until he/she gets around to the real point of their posting--to call attention--again-- to the non-fact that RT is a holocaust denier.
A person in this thread keeps trying to insist people are advocating violence against Nico, but when cornered on his/her distortions claims "I just wanted to talk about his theories".
They can't keep a good woman down...
The World Can't Wait, Won't Wait, Isn't Waiting
Cynthia McKinney Speech
Kuala Lumpur Peace Conference
And later she gets to the meat of the matter:
"The first time I felt the sting of Republican retribution and Democratic Party indifference was in 2002 when I questioned the Administration's explanation of what happened on September 11th, 2001. I am the Member of Congress who asked the simple question, "What did the Bush Administration know and when did it know it, about the tragic events of September 11th." After I was defeated in 2002, I traveled all over my country supporting the anti-war movement and informing the American people of the lies of the Bush Administration."
Bully for you, Mckinney! They can't keep a good woman down!
Cheers to falseflagusa of PDX 911 for the heads up!
This in from CNN:
ASHINGTON (CNN) -- New York City will be protected by a ring of devices to detect nuclear or dirty bombs before the end of the year, the Department of Homeland Security said Friday.
A dirty bomb is one that spreads radiation without employing a nuclear explosion.
The Department of Homeland Security hopes the circle of sensors will give warning if a bomb is transported into the city by land.
Most previous detection efforts have focused on preventing a bomb from being smuggled into the city by sea.
Under the "Securing the Cities" initiative, detectors will be placed along highways, at truck stops, in weigh stations and at other sites on the perimeter of New York, as well as locations closer to the city center, an official said. Locations will not be made public "for obvious reasons," the official said.
fatigue--from Wikipeadia's entry on combat stress reaction:
"The most common symptom is fatigue: slower reaction times, indesicion, disconnection form ones surroundings and an inability to prioritize."
So how many of us feel fatigued by 911activism? How many felt fatigued BEFORE 911activism?
While it's true doing something you believe in gives you energy, doing anything long enough with little or slow returns WILL exhaust the hardiest of souls. We need to remember this to keep healthy, whole and sane, because it is not likely to get easier any time soon:
Eat good food, but allow a few comfort foods--as long as they aren't the basis of your diet, don't beat youreslf up about it!
Excersise--even if it's getting up and walking around the block--there's a lot of physical energy in this fight that can get locked up if the body is too sedentary
Get enough sleep--your body(and brain) do most of their recovery while your consciousness is "down".
