From Washington's Blog: http://georgewashington2.blogspot.com/
We've heard this before, haven't we and is it any surprise? This time more people are beginning to catch on, especially the one's who've lost their homes....
From the very outset, the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission was set up to fail.
The investigations were further hampered by the requirement that subpoenas have bi-partisan approval along with Its decision to hold hearings with high profile individuals, including top Wall Street executives, before much in the way of lower-level investigation had been completed. The usual way to get meaningful disclosure from a top executive is to confront him with hard-to-defend material or actions; interrogations under bright lights, while a fun bit of theater, generally yield little in the absence of adequate prep.

Unions are shaking up the state in France. This is big. Unions know how to shut things down when the going gets rough.
A SENIOR union leader has publicly stated he believes the September 11 terrorist attacks were a conspiracy and the Twin Towers were imploded.
Kevin Bracken, Victorian branch secretary of the Maritime Union of Australia and president of the Victorian Trades Hall Council, is calling for a "proper investigation into the events of September 11''.
"I believe the official story is a conspiracy theory that doesn't stand up to scientific scrutiny,'' he told ABC radio host Jon Faine this morning.
``There are so many unanswered questions and the official story doesn't stand up to scientific scrutiny, that there were four planes hijacked for over an hour and 20 minutes yet no US planes were scrambled which is directly against standard US air force operating procedures"
Global Research writer Tom Burghardt outlines a chilling attack on our cyber privacy by the Obama Administration in this new article called "Crypto Wars"
Clamping Down on the Freedom of Information Act
Entreaties by civil libertarians however, are likely to fall on deaf ears in the Democratic-controlled Congress.
In a clear sign that the Obama administration is moving to clamp down further on the free flow of information even as they seek access to all of ours', Politico reported that the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) "appears to be on the verge of prevailing in an attempt to put some information it receives from other intelligence agencies beyond the reach of Freedom of Information Act requests."

The Road to World War III - The Global Banking Cartel Has One Card Left to Play
by David DeGraw
Global Research, September 28, 2010
ampedstatus.com - 2010-09-27
The following is Part I to David DeGraw’s new book, “The Road Through 2012: Revolution or World War III.” This is the second installment to a new seven-part series that we will be posting throughout the next few weeks. You can read the introduction to the book here.
I: Economic Imperial Operations
Comedy Central's Jon Stewart along with Stephen Colbert are announcing counter-Beck rallies at the Lincoln Memorial on October 30, 2010. Stewart's is for "Restoring Sanity", Colbert's is for keeping "Fear Alive". While both of these guys have done some pretty amazing work pulling down the pants of right wing hypocrisy and government lunacy, they are nonetheless serving the unhelpful role of left wing progressive gate keepers by once again referring to 9/11 Truth activism as "conspiracy" stuff.
David Chandler: 9/11 Analysis DVD | July 04, 2010
9/11 Analysis is a compilation of short analysis videos I have produced and uploaded to the internet over the last few years, woven together with an interpretive narrative. The individual short pieces arose one-by-one as measurements were made and insights developed, but together they constitute a coherent body of work: the total destruction of the three most prominent buildings of the World Trade Center as seen through the eyes of a physics teacher and concerned citizen.
Shown here is the concluding narrative, an appeal to take the events of 9/11 seriously, even as the events of 9/11 seem to fade into the distance. The wars of 9/11 continue. The justification of torture, the loss of civil rights, the overturning of over two centuries of democratic tradition, and the demonization of a major segment of humanity under the guise of "terrorism" are continuing legacies of 9/11.
Author Russ Baker, gives a gripping talk on his book, Family of Secrets- an in depth examination of the Bush dynasty and America's invisible government, at Borders Books in San Francisco, June 15, 2010.
Anyone interested in the scholarly pursuit of how power really works in the US and to what extent the purveyors of that power will go need to read Russ' book. This highly disturbing book has been quarantined even by what many consider to be an open minded show---Comedy Central. The jokes on us. If you want to understand the dark back story to events like those on September 11, consider bringing Russ Baker into your consciousness.
Today on NPR's Fresh Air, Terry Gross interviews embedded reporter Kelly Kennedy on her experiences telling the moving and tragic story of one of the worse days of an army unit in Iraq. I was brought to tears listening to this story, so, be advised, this is not easy stuff to digest. I was also brought to renewed awareness about why we are 9-11 Truth activists. As so many in our movement have said -these "9-11 wars" make the events of September 11, 2001 real, alive and vitally important to fully understand today. In the face of sacrifices troops like these made, you can only imagine how things will come apart at the seams when a full Truth airing happens, yet happen it must, if the endless insanity of these illegals wars is to stopped along with their dark cousins of the loss of freedoms and democracy.
When losing a discussion on the facts of 9/11, a so-called 9/11 "debunker" will often rely on an old canard to "prove" that 9/11 could not have been an inside job: "So many people want their quarter hour of fame that even the Men in Black couldn't squelch the squealers from spilling the beans," write self-satisfied defenders of the government story. According to the logic of this argument, if there are no 9/11 whistleblowers then 9/11 was not an inside job.
So what if there are 9/11 whistleblowers? What if these whistleblowers come from every level of government and private industry, individuals who have even had their cases vindicated by internal government reports? As you are about to see, there are numerous such whistleblowers and each one is a thorn in the side of those who want to pretend that the 9/11 Commission represents the sum total of knowledge on the 9/11 attacks.

Whistleblowers are the lifeblood of 9-11 Truth.
T.E. Braniff, founder of Braniff Airlines and friend to George H.W.Bush, was a member of the Knights Templar, an ancient Catholic anti-Islamic order, birthed during the Medieval Crusades. Young Eric Prince worked in Bush elder's White House. His connections to the administration under which 9-11 happened, go back far and long and deep.
Russ Baker http://russbaker.com/ has been writing fearlessly about connections like this one in "Family of Secrets". Now, Michael Carmichael, has revealed more, in an article titled, "From Blackwater to Xe, the Templar Crusade Mercenary soldiers and security personnel for the US government".
from the article:
"Erik Prince, the founder and owner of the now infamous US corporation, Blackwater, hails from Holland, Michigan where his family was both powerful and prominent in two institutions - (1) the Republican Party and (2) the evangelical Christian Church. After scandals hit his large and lucrative firm, Prince ordered a curious rebranding that changed its name to Xe.
Bonnie Faulkner hits broadcasting pay dirt (the dirt part is truly dirty) with this highly
disturbing series of Bush dynastic revelations from author Russ Baker, speaking about his new book,
Family of Secrets.
From the program notes, you wouldn't perceive just how disturbing the information is.
"Guns and Butter - "Family of Secrets - The Bush Dynasty"
"Family of Secrets - The Bush Dynasty" with investigative reporter and author, Russ Baker. The Bush family's extensive ties to intelligence; the Kennedy assassination; Nixon and Watergate; W's rise to power. Russ Baker is the author of Family of Secrets - The Bush Dynasty, The Powerful Forces That Put It In the White House, and What Their Influence Means for America."
David Chandler is the author of numerous online videos that analyze the
collapse of the World Trade Building from the point of view of a
physics instructor. David’s contributions to the NIST final Report on WTC 7
led to their admitting to 2.2 seconds of “free fall” in the buildings collapse.
David is also the author of the popular internet site: http://www.lcurve.org/
about US income distribution.
AE911Truth Live Webcast at University of New Mexico, 2pm MDT 1pm PST Sunday 10/25/09
Read the entire report, there's a lot more of great interest.
William Pepper, legal advisor to the New York City 9/11 Ballot Initiative, today explained why the initiative's board has decided not to pursue the case any further. Appearing on the "Fair and Balanced with Kevin Barrett" radio show (archived here) Pepper said the odds of winning an appeal were too slim to justify the resources such an appeal would consume. Instead, he said, the NYCcan.org legal team is hoping to file a civil suit by 9/11 family members and others in a legal venue carefully selected to maximize the chances of success.
Pepper also confirmed the rumor that a professor who is an expert on election law refused to help NYCcan.org after Pepper was unable to promise the professor that the results of a genuine 9/11 investigation would not hurt Israel.

I always thought Truth recovery might just get a big boost from unraveling the deceit and manipulations in the financial sector. This is big news friends and it could very well lead to the discovery of more Truth. Just think about the put options on United and American weeks before 9-11. Please dear God send the best and brightest and most funded legal teams to efforts like this in the Kansas Supreme Court! Great reporting from Ellen Brown, as usual.

Landmark Decision Promises Massive Relief for Homeowners and Trouble for Banks
For Steven Jones, the authors of the Active Thermitic Material paper, and Isaiah 29
Your Speech Shall Whisper Out of the Dust
All returns to earth and clay
The living, sky, waters,
Consumed by processes
The earth speaks through sounds and motions
Guided by prophesies.
Atomized lives mingle with earth stopped torments,
Quieted, except the sounds let loose through
Those sounds, those whispers…
Your speech shall whisper out of the dust.
Fine particles of thought and emotion
Smaller than electrons find pathways
To those who give thanks, those who connect to time before.
All that is time, is sacred.
Your speech shall whisper out of the dust.
Life happens because of connection.
Connection is the thread transcendent.
Connection leads to what is and what can be.
The time has arrived.
Connection speaks. The earth speaks.
Revealed is the story of what is and what was.
Your speech shall whisper out of the dust.
From the text, full story appears here: http://www.tikkun.org/article.php?story=20090908084856114
"As to how Jones could have signed the statement below, let me make clear that neither he nor I, who also signed the statement, signed something accusing Bush of being directly involved in 9/11. I did authorize my name to be used to call for an investigation of the claims of those who deny the official story of 9/11.
I am now and was then an agnostic about what actually happened to make 9/11 possible, but do agree with those who say that there are enough inconsistencies and problems with the official story to warrant an impartial investigation by people not connected to the government of the US and not bound by political considerations. I think that such an investigation would be a great advantage to everyone.
When it rains it pours, it seems, and even famous political cartoonists are not immune to the subtle pressures from the "left gatekeeper" mentality.

Dr. Steven Jones presents important features from the paper, "Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe"
This talk is powerful and challenges the un-peer reviewed science of NIST, as that agency of the government tries to explain the collapse of building 7 during the 9/11 event.
The Secret Government, the Black Government. Who controls the money controls everything. This article found in http://www.thewe.cc/weplanet/news/americas/us_terror_state/us_black_budg... is the best shortened version of a description of the puppet master that I've come across to date. The authors of the report are Katherine Austin Fitts http://solari.com and Chris Sanders http://sandersresearch.com The 9/11 false flag operation was controlled and financed by something. That something had to have far reaching tentacles into the US financial poison brew. This essay attempts to shed some light on how this came about and why the secret government's entrenchment should be a vital concern to 911 Truth activists.
Black Budget? What Black Budget?
At the time of the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in September 2001 according to the Government Accounting Office (GAO), Pentagon had incurred $3.4 trillion of “undocumentable transactions,” that is to say that there were $3.4 trillion worth of financial transactions for which there was no discernible purpose.

We are fighting an epic war against the wealthy, entrenched masters of deception. Deceit is a stratagem of inestimable value to this ruling minority. It is their lifeblood, their way, their religion. They cannot operate without it. They have found, over the decades, the right combinations of wealth saturated influence and interjections into all those institutions we held as trustworthy- our representatives, our money managers, our press, our universities and even to many wearing the trappings of religious authority. To crack their code has been the mission especially of those of us in the 9/11 truth movement. Their deceit goes far deeper than 9/11. We can see it operating in the human catastrophe now known as the global financial collapse. The planning and implementation of the events of 9/11 are more than likely connected to the purveyors of this web of deceit. Their mission is an on going affair. Ours is as well. Exposing any crack in this system will eventually lead to the unmasking of layer after layer of its toxic entanglements.We are after all challenging the art of deception with the art of truth telling.
When I found a post by “The Other Katherine Harris” on understanding casino financial instruments, “Derivatives for Dummies”, http://dandelionsalad.wordpress.com/2009/02/18/exclusive-derivatives-for... I knew I found a great new blog. Among the featured writers on this blog are Prof. Michael Hudson, Michel Chossudovsky, Ralph Nader, Chris Hedges, Nikki Alexander and more. There’s a lot of news to digest and understanding capitalism’s dark sides are vital to understanding how things work and how to develop responses. DandelionSalad sifts through the best alternative news, especially financial, and gets it to you fast.
One form of activism is simple web linking and this blog did not hesitate to post a link to us here at 911blogger in their blog roll. Check out two recent great posts, Hudson’s “The Real AIG Conspiracy”
and Michel Chossudovsky’s “Preparing For Civil Unrest in America & HR 654”
