The problem isn’t that we’re powerless.
You may have already heard that 20-year Marine Corps infantry and intelligence officer, the second-ranking civilian in U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence, and former CIA clandestine services case officer (Robert Steele) stated that "9/11 was at a minimum allowed to happen as a pretext for war", and it was probably an inside job (see Amazon Customer Review dated October 7, 2006).
However, no one has noticed that Mr. Steele posted the following additional comment on February 3, 2007:
1) 9-11 was planned and executed by Bin Laden with direct assistance from elements of the Pakistani government.
If I've got something stuck between my teeth, I rely on my best friends to tell me, so I can fix it.
Well, leaders from our close allies in England, France, Germany, Canada, Japan, Russia and elsewhere have been trying to tell us something, but we haven't heard them. Please read what these close allies are trying to tell us about 9/11:
The former Assistant German Defense Minister and a current member of British Parliament (Andreas von Bülow and Michael Meacher)
The former Canadian Minister of Defense (Paul Hellyer)
The commander-in-chief of the Russian Navy (Anatoli Kornukov)
The former chief of staff of the Russian armed forces (General Leonid Ivashov )
Former Congressman Hamburg Joins 9/11 Commissioners, Military Leaders and other Highly-Credible People Who Question 9/11
The co-chairs of the 9/11 Commission (Thomas Keane and Lee Hamilton) said that the CIA (and likely the White House) "obstructed our investigation".
The co-chairs of the 9/11 Commission also said that the 9/11 Commissioners knew that military officials misrepresented the facts to the Commission, and the Commission considered recommending criminal charges for such false statements, yet didn't bother to tell the American people (free subscription required).
Apparently, a number of articles and groups are discussing -- in one way or another -- violent revolution. See, for example, this essay.
Prominent impeachment activists argue that impeachment, rather than violent revolution, is the appropriate mechanism built into the Constitution to fight tyranny.
But some people respond that Congress won't impeach, and so that mechanism is not available. Specifically, House leader Pelosi has said "impeachment is off the table", Judiciary Committee chairman John Conyers won't take action, and the Congress as a whole simply won't start impeachment proceedings. So they argue that with impeachment unavailable, the only option left is violence.
But I think that argument is missing a very important point.
Yesterday, it was revealed that the former chief prosecutor believes the trials are rigged,
Today, it was revealed that three more former Guantanamo prosecutors -- Major Robert Preston, Captain John Carr and Captain Carrie Wolf -- "asked to be relieved of duties after saying they were concerned that the process was rigged. One said he had been assured he didn’t need to worry about building a proper case; convictions were assured".
Multiple corroborating witnesses, all insiders working on the prosecution side for the government (along with countless corroborating witnesses on the defense side) . . . Do you think that the mainstream media might be able to find a story here?
The former chief prosecutor for Guantánamo's military commissions has disclosed that the trials of the 9/11 suspects have been rigged to prevent the possibility of acquittal.
Indeed, the current head of the Guantanamo tribunal that will prosecute the defendants -- who is in charge of both prosecuting and defending the defendants -- told the former chief prosecutor:
The government could not have foreseen the 9/11 attacks.
(Actually, the attacks were very foreseeable.)
Maybe the attacks were foreseeable, but at least the government minimized the severity of the attacks.
Most guys (and a smaller percentage of women) pay a lot of attention to sports. Most athletes are hesitant to speak out about politics. So when an athlete does speak out, it makes a large impact.
While prosecuting the Guantanamo "9/11 suspects" in a military tribunal is outside of the normal protections of the U.S. federal court system, at least the suspects will be provided with an adequate defense. Right?
Well, actually . . . no.
According to the Washington Post:
The cadre of civilian lawyers representing terrorism suspects held by the military at Guantanamo Bay are not allowed to meet their clients in private, without video surveillance. All their mail and notes must be turned over to the military. Classified information cannot be shared with their clients. They are not entitled to everything the government knows about their clients.
Who are you going to trust to arrive at the truth regarding 9/11 and to prosecute the real criminals:
The government tortured a guy who was already crazy, and then used his "confession" as the basis for much of the official version of 9/11
The "official" version of events was crafted to protect the Bush administration
Bush, Cheney and other top administration officials claimed and continue to claim that Saddam was behind 9/11 (and used that as one of the main justifications for the Iraq war), even though they were informed that there was no link
The U.S. is using a 'Kangaroo court' to prosecute the men accused of a role in September 11 attacks, and will switch off their microphones if they say anything which questions the government's version of events
I'm trying to get this story on the front page of Reddit (which censors less than Digg, but still tends to trash 9/11 stories).

Richard F. Humenn, PE was the Senior Project Design Engineer for electrical systems for the entire World Trade Center, and he had 60 people working under him. In other words, he was the guy in charge of all electrical at the WTC. A retired licensed professional engineer, he was certified by the States of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Washington, D.C.
Note: If you are an atheist, that's totally cool. This essay is aimed at the 85% of the American population identifies itself as Christian, and the millions more who identify themselves as Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, etc.
Every Sunday, I submit a prayer request at my place of worship (it happens to be a church; but this would work just as well at a synagogue, temple, or mosque).
Because millions of Americans submit prayer requests in their places of worship every year, it dawned on me . . . why not use prayer requests to spread truth?
For example, everyone who goes to a church, synagogue, temple or mosque could submit a prayer request every visit saying something like:
Please pray for: 9/11 Truth
Comments: Please see 911Blogger.com for more information
If you believe in prayer, then please consider that praying for 9/11 truth is a good thing (see also this).
There's a battle right now on Reddit whether to promote or bury this story. It has a good chance of waking the Reddit community up to 9/11 truth, if it gets front-paged.

Since writing "New York Times Bestselling Author Aims at 9/11 Coverup with Both Barrels Blazing", I haven't done much to push The Shell Game.
Indeed, I tend to back efforts that I think have momentum, or that can be given momentum to have a real effect.
However, now that the book has broken onto the New York Times bestseller list, there is a real chance to create momentum for 9/11 truth.
Whatever you think about peak oil (I'm totally agnostic) or Alten's views on certain subjects, you have to admit that any book that would get naive Americans* questioning false flags is a big plus.
Here is the new flyer Alten has just released:
I personally encourage everyone to pass out flyers (as well as continue on with your other 9/11 activism).
* I.e. Americans that have not been exposed to very many of the actual facts concerning 9/11.
But did you know that a 9/11 Commissioner recently said that all of the 9/11 Commission staff had a conflict of interest?
Specifically, 9/11 Commissioner and former Secretary of the Navy John Lehman just said on NBC Nightly news:
“We purposely put together a staff that had – in a way - conflicts of interest" (3:48 into video)
He went on to say:
- Written by Cheri Roberts.
This weekend I attended the Publicizing Truths with Consequence media summit in Santa Cruz, CA representing MTR News Network; an event sponsored by Project Censored, 911Truth.org, and Be The Media. Turnout surpassed projected expectations 3 hours into the first day of this three day conference despite a winter storm that produced relentless rain and wind. At it’s high point there were upwards of 250+ people. The organizers adapted to the overflow and hosted a great event.
Okay, here is the winning campaign slogan. Not just for any specific presidential or congressional candidate (although it would win for them also). But also for the campaigns against fascism, corruption, wars based upon lies, 9/11 coverups, voting fraud, and economic problems.
Before I tell you the slogan, though, let me remind you that the economy is now more important to people than the war in Iraq. And the subprime meltdown and other economic problems are 0bviously on peoples' minds.
In addition, right or wrong, among many Americans who believe that wealth is a sign of favor from above, "bankruptcy" is thought of as failure.
Moreover, the phrase "morally bankrupt" is one of the worst insults that can be hurled at someone. Among "values voters", ethical integrity is the most important issue. Even among the secular left, corruption is one of the ultimate negatives in a leader.

Preface: I am truly sorry for the suffering of those Americans who will lose their home, their job, or their life savings as a result of the economic crash. This article focuses on one potential silver lining -- an opportunity to promote truth and justice.
Will the crash wake Americans up from their comfortable slumber and make them question their government more? Stalin said that dictatorships only last so long as the dictators keep their people well-fed. Americans have been strongly motivated not to question the government because they have been led to believe that if they just follow the party line, they'll get nice jobs, make a bundle of dough, buy into "the American dream". A crash has the possibility to awaken Americans from their dangerously cozy nap.
Do you notice that the watter is getting hotter?
Do you notice that there is steam rising from the water?
Do you notice that there are bubbles forming around you?
I know that the water started off nice and cool . . .
And then it got pleasantly warm . . .
And then it wasn't really so bad . . .
I know that you're getting sleepier and sleepier, and that the warmth and gentle rocking motion of the bubbles are making you dream . . .
YOU BETTER WAKE UP AND DO SOMETHING RIGHT NOW OR YOU'LL BE BOILED ALIVE AND EATEN BY SOME BIG FAT GLUTTON!
This has been a public service announcement from Americans Against Fascism.
Defenders of the official version of 9/11 claim that people who question the government's account are anarchists who want to tear down the United States of America.
This is important because many Americans in a position to be able to spread the truth or help to obtain justice will fight any effort which they think will destroy America.
Are 9/11 truth activists, in fact, anarchists?
Well, I've been involved in the 9/11 truth movement for years, have spoken with many of the leading advocates for 9/11 truth, and have been involved enough in various groups and discussion boards to have a sense of the types of people who question 9/11. Based on that experience, I would say no.
History proves that ideas are more powerful than weapons. Sure, in the short-term, those who possess the strongest military and the deadliest weapons will prevail. But powerful new ideas bring greater change over the span of a couple of hundred years than military might.
The wannabe-fascists in America, England, Israel and other countries have won in the short-term. For example, there already is soft fascism in America and England. Wars have already been launched just because America -- as sole superpower -- had the military strength to do it. The elections are already rigged, with only those hand-picked by the powers-that-be standing any chance of winning.
But people world-wide are waking up to the facts of manipulation of intelligence, false flag operations and rigged elections. This is a huge development.
Truth activists have all the facts on our side, but how do we persuade people who stubbornly refuse to listen to those facts? I read a book recently which provides expert marketing advice for political activists1. This essay summarizes principles of persuasion for use by truth activists.
Those promoting a fascist agenda have long been using advanced marketing techniques to manipulate people. We must understand these techniques in order to shield ourselves from manipulation.
In addition, using these tools in our work to protect our liberties, spread truth and promote justice will make us more effective.
The first thing to understand about persuasion is that every person actually has 3 brains. Top-notch communicators appeal to all 3 brains.
The 3 brains are:
I just came across this fascinating 7-minute video showing how Freud's nephew - Edward Bernays - created modern propaganda and psyops.
Well worth a watch.
American media has always been complicit in backing powerful conspirators in their coups against democracy.
Of course, the American media has always acted as a cheerleader for war, parroting false claims about enemies attacking the U.S. in the Spanish-American war, the Vietnam war, the Gulf war, and many other wars.
Do you see debris scatter over a huge area (as if shot down, for example)? Or do you see the wreckage which would be expected if Flight 93 had crashed?

If you are a current or former military or intelligence officer, you just may be able to save your country.
But there's something else you can do to save the country.
Meeting with as many state troopers, marshals, police captains, national guardsmen, soldiers and other folks who would actually be tasked with implementing martial law if and when the powers-that-be decide that velvet-gloved "soft fascism" is no longer working or moving their plans along fast enough.
Many police officers, guardsmen and military personnel are good people who simply don't know what's really going on in America.
