Since 1980, we have militarily intervened at least 35 times in more than 27 countries. We keep bombing, we continue spending trillions of dollars, but we're no safer as a result.

The U.S. Supreme Court Is Marching in Lockstep with the Police State
By John W. Whitehead
June 23, 2014
“[I]f the individual is no longer to be sovereign, if the police can pick him up whenever they do not like the cut of his jib, if they can ‘seize’ and ‘search’ him in their discretion, we enter a new regime. The decision to enter it should be made only after a full debate by the people of this country.”—U.S. Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas
The U.S. Supreme Court was intended to be an institution established to intervene and protect the people against the government and its agents when they overstep their bounds. Yet as I point out in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, Americans can no longer rely on the courts to mete out justice. In the police state being erected around us, the police and other government agents can probe, poke, pinch, taser, search, seize, strip and generally manhandle anyone they see fit in almost any circumstance, all with the general blessing of the courts.
Whether it’s police officers breaking through people’s front doors and shooting them dead in their homes or strip searching innocent motorists on the side of the road, these instances of abuse are continually validated by a judicial system that kowtows to virtually every police demand, no matter how unjust, no matter how in opposition to the Constitution.

Despite being informed of the facts about the recycling of WTC steel, (the part about why this eviscerates Dr. Wood's absurd theory of "Dustification") Jesse Ventura continues to use the word when explaining the complete demolition of the three WTC towers.
Now he has a new episode http://www.ora.tv/offthegrid/category/ventura-declarations/counter-conspiracy-world-trade-center-7-0_5n2nag3l8ajt dealing with WTC7, right on the heels of two segments featuring Dr. Judy Wood. (Warning--Childish Content)

The Scientists For 911 Truth have posted a new article on the complaint served by Dr. William Pepper on Todd Zinser, Inspector General of the Department of Commerce.
Please take a few moments of your valuable time to read, sign and share with your friends this new petition calling upon Todd Zinser to investigate fraud at NIST.
The blizzard of 2014 has begun in Washington, DC!!
William Pepper, Attorney at Law, Pursuing NIST via OIG Re: Fraudulent WTC 7 Report
Written by Dennis P. McMahon, Esq.
Investigation Demanded Based on FOIA Release Info
On behalf of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, esteemed human rights attorney William F. Pepper has written to the U.S. Department of Commerce's Office of the Inspector General (OIG) demanding that the National Institute of Standards and Technology (“NIST,” a non-regulatory agency within the Commerce Department), for which OIG has oversight responsibility, “be directed to produce a corrected analysis and report on the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7.”
The demand was triggered by the discovery that the official steel fabrication drawings of Building 7’s construction, released in response to a FOIA request, reveal critical structural features that were inexplicably missing from consideration in the NIST report on the collapse of Building 7. Specifically, as explained in the recent article “MaladmiNISTration” by David Cole, upon close examination of the depiction, in Frankel shop drawing #9114, of the connection between Column 79 and the adjacent girder–a connection that NIST claimed had failed–one can see another steel element in the drawing that NIST had never mentioned, i.e. “stiffener plates,” that were specified at the end of the girder and welded in place to both sides of the web and to the bottom flange.
On January 21, 2014, Melanie Sloan, Executive Director of the Citizens for Responsibility & Ethics in Washington (CREW) was a guest on C-SPAN's Washington Journal:
Melanie Sloan is the Executive Director of Citizens for Responsibility & Ethics in Washington, and said she would look into a callers claim regarding the collapse of WTC Building 7 while on C-SPAN Tuesday morning.
Melanie Sloan serves as CREW's Executive Director and is a nationally recognized expert on congressional ethics. Prior to starting CREW, she served as an Assistant United States Attorney in the District of Columbia where, from 1998-2003, she successfully tried cases before dozens of judges and juries.

Transcript of the exchange:
"Congress's refusal to investigate the evidence that Building 7 was brought down in a controlled demolition on 9/11 is based on its blind trust in NIST's WTC 7 report, which has now been found to contain incorrect data about the building design that, when corrected, renders NIST's fire collapse conclusion impossible. As appropriations committee member would you be willing to review the errors in NIST's report and help in seeking accountability from NIST for its errors considering that NIST has spent over 20 million dollars of taxpayers money to produce this erroneous report? "
Representative Marcy Kaptur:
"I would be more than happy to receive information from you sir and turn it over to those who have that particular agency under their jurisdiction. I have seen some of the callers who have called into programs and I think you're getting your message through, and as I said earlier, 'Truth will out'...sometime the government doesn't have all the facts, or there is an effort in some matters to not reveal the facts, for whatever reason, but ultimately if the American people are persistent the truth will be revealed. So you certainly can send me material and I will discuss it with those who are in charge of funding those agencies."
Link to the evidence and complaint:
I am pleased to offer the following email from Public Affairs Officer Michael Newman, dated 25 OCT 2013. The inquiry actually began in March 2012 immediately following our discovery of the stiffeners on girder A2001. Despite what the answer says, I made my inquiry on 26 JUL 2013 and followed up on 24 SEP. No reply was received so I sent a final letter on 19 OCT.
Background on this inquiry can be found here:

Dear Mr. Cole,
Following your e-mail of September 24 (see below), a set of responses to your questions were prepared. Unfortunately, the partial shutdown of the federal government delayed our getting these responses to you. With our apologies for tardiness, here are those responses:
A) In NCSTAR 1-9, which design drawing was used to create:
Figure 8-21?.................1091, 9114
Figure 8-23?.................1091, 3004, 9114
It has been 60 days since I asked NIST about the numerous discrepancies between Frankel Fabrication Shop Drawing #9114 and certain figures found in their WTC7 report NCSTAR 1-9.
Frankel Drawing #9114 clearly shows stiffener plates welded onto the end of the girder that NIST claims walked off its C79 seated connection on floor 13, leading to an unprecedented global progressive collapse.
Please contact NIST Director Patrick Gallagher and Public Affairs Officer Michael Newman at the following email addresses and ask for a prompt reply to these pertinent questions.
You may phone them at:
Patrick Gallagher-- 301-975-2300 (Director )
Michael Newman-- 301-975-3025 (Public Affairs)

Dear Mr. Newman and Mr. Gallagher,
It has been 60 days since I sent my inquiry regarding the figures in NCSTAR 1-9.
The case against NIST is taking shape. Everybody agrees that the time has come to enter the courthouse.
What's the difference? Those plates welded to the girder. They are called stiffeners.
Why aren’t the stiffeners shown in the version above from the NIST report when they are shown in the actual WTC7 drawings? (NOTE: I drew the stiffeners in because NIST failed to.)
Why the stiffeners are so important:
Stiffener plates are critically important. They allow a girder to transfer loads to a wider footprint (bearing surface) and increase its ability to resist failure.
