9/11 Conspiracy Theory May Finally Be Settled On November Ballot
Out of the cheese plate, onto the ballot. This November, New Yorkers may vote on a referendum that would force further inquiry into the collapse of 7 World Trade Center on 9/11, thanks to a group called NYC Coalition for Accountability Now.
The "High Rise Safety Initiative" petition, which the group says received 67,192 signatures, would fund a DOB investigation of the Building 7 collapse with a 0.9% surcharge on construction permits. Per the City Charter, the City Council could still reject the petition, and require the submission of 15,000 more signatures from registered voters; the group is aiming for 33,000 more to settle the matter, and says it needs $60,000 by July 20th to do so. The petition first came to light in June.

Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday denounced an effort by an off-shoot of the 9/11 truth movement to force the city to investigate the collapse of 7 World Trade Center during the terrorist attack 13 years ago.
"From what I've heard it's absolutely ridiculous," a peeved Mr. de Blasio said in response to a reporter's question. "And it's inappropriate, after all the suffering that went on 9/11 and since. It seems to be this is a very insensitive and inappropriate action."

Interview 910 – Inventing Terrorists with Kathy Manley
Corbett • July 4, 2014
Today we’re joined by Kathy Manley of Project SALAM and the National Coalition to Protect Civil Freedoms to discuss her recent study, “Inventing Terrorists: The Lawfare of Preemptive Prosecution.” We talk about the ‘preemptive prosecution’ paradigm that is increasingly being used to prosecute government-designated terrorists in the “war on terror” and discuss examples of how the basic tenets of jurisprudence are currently being undermined in the American injustice system.

High-Rise Safety Initiative in the News:
NY Post Publishes Gossip Piece on PR Firm's Association with the Campaign
Huffington Post Is Reminded We're Not Giving Up
One week after Crain's New York Business kicked off news coverage of the High-Rise Safety Initiative, the New York Post (the rag of record in NYC) published a piece this morning ridiculing Sheinkopf Communications for its association with the High-Rise Safety Initiative. We are disappointed, though not surprised, to see the Post's mindless angle on this very important issue. But we thank the Post for informing hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers about our campaign. Also, since our last update, the Huffington Post published an article commending our persistence.

9/11 conspiracy group could force its way onto ballot
Andrew J. Hawkins
June 25, 2014
For years, 9/11 conspiracy theorists have been marginalized if not utterly ignored, producing blog posts and online films that gain little traction with the general public.
But a small nonprofit dedicated to uncovering the “truth” behind the collapse of the World Trade Center buildings is making a big push to get its issue in front of millions of voters. The group has gathered tens of thousands of petition signatures and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in an effort to force the city to investigate the destruction of 7 World Trade Center during the attack 13 years ago.
Goebbels, The Master of Lies (RT Documentary)
“Let me control the media and I will turn any nation into a herd of pigs” – Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels turned words into a weapon of mass destruction. Dangerous lies spread by the Nazi regime lead to brutal murders and cruelty that continue to shake minds.
Dick Cheney: “the next time, it will be with far deadlier weapons than airline tickets and box cutters.”
'This Week': Dick Cheney
Appearing on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos, former Vice President Dick Cheney plainly stated that there are much bigger problems than are going on in Iraq.
Using a recent Rand Corporation poll, Cheney listed all of the other terrorist organizations that are popping up around the globe who are as dangerous as ISIS, if not more, especially those with nuclear capabilities.
There’s been a 58% increase in the number of groups like al Qaeda — Salafi-Jihadists, and it stretches from west Africa all across north Africa, east Africa, through the Middle East all the way around to Indonesia — a doubling of the number of terrorists out there.
I worry about Pakistan. Just a couple of weeks ago, in Pakistan, the Taliban — the same group we just released five of the leaders of from Guantanamo — raided Karachi Airport. Why do I care about that? Well, Pakistan is unique in that it has a significant inventory of nuclear weapons.
“False Flag Terrorism” to Sustain America’s “Humanitarian” Agenda
Sustaining the US Empire’s Killing Machine. The Modus Operandi of US Led Wars
By Joachim Hagopian
Global Research, June 02, 2014
In late May 2014, President Obama rolled out his foreign policy initiatives at West Point and said nothing new. Every lie he uttered is just a retread cover for the same old, same old disastrous foreign policy the US has engaged in since the cold war began shortly after World War II. The fact is Washington has been regularly practicing this same modus operandi for over sixty years.

Jake Tapper’s “The Lead” Dips to New Low
with “Coverage” of AE911Truth’s 9/11 Museum Brochure
It looked just like an infomercial but with a lot more frowning.
In an example of Orwellian newspeak, the CNN show The Lead with Jake Tapper took on Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth over its decision to distribute information pamphlets outside the National September 11 Memorial and Museum at Ground Zero in New York City. The pamphlets mimic the design of the “official” ones, but instead of the official story, they contain key scientific forensic evidence indicating that the three World Trade Center towers were brought down with explosives and incendiaries. Unlike the official version, the photo on the cover of the AE pamphlet shows the Twin Towers and Building 7.

If We Don’t Learn Our History … We May Very Well Blow Off Our Own Foot
Preface: We believe that Soviet communism was an abomination. Stalin was certainly a tyrant: he killed countless political enemies or threw them into insane asylums. We also have littler tolerance for useful idiots who defend communism as a force for good. In short, we hate Soviet era communism.
And Putin also runs Russia like it’s his plaything, with little regard for the desires of his people.
But U.S. warmongers have also been hyping the Russian threat with self-serving lies – and committing atrocities and telling lies – for some 70 years. As an American, my concern is keeping America from destroying itself. And – unless we learn our history – we could get in a lot of trouble.
