Hey 9/11 Blogger- Some of you might have seen my last graphic novel, Fighting for G.O.D. (Gold, Oil, and Drugs). http://www.fightingforgod.com I'm proud to announce that I've just launched a new one called After the Dream, and you can read it online for free. http://www.afterthedream.net
After the Dream is an ongoing, fictional series, but it deals with some of the darkest parapolitical realities of our time. To quote one famous revolutionary, sometimes artists use lies to tell the truth. I don't want to give away too many spoilers, but one of the main characters is a 9/11 survivor who enlists in Army Intelligence and joins the fight in Afghanistan. He starts to doubt the government, however, when he discovers mercenaries who are smuggling opium and trafficking children. The story goes on to touch upon a wide range of black ops that the CIA and various corporations have had a hand in over the years.
If you'd like to help spread the word about After the Dream, you can become a fan on facebook, and vote for After the Dream on the webcomic ranking sites listed on the main page at http://www.afterthedream.net
Thanks friends, and keep up the good fight!
Ready for a naval embargo against Iran? That's what AIPAC is lobbying congress for this week. Resolution 362 is the bill that is urging the imposition of "stringent inspection requirements on all persons, vehicles, ships, planes, trains, and cargo entering or departing Iran"... say again? How do you do that without the use of military force? The urgency and importance of this resolution cannot be overstated. Stopping this resolution would be a major setback for AIPAC. Call your Congressperson today and demand that they oppose Resolution 362, and tell your Senators to oppose Resolution 580, the Senate version. For more details, see:
I wanted to let folks know that at the end of the month, it will be a year since "Fighting for G.O.D. (Gold, Oil, and Drugs)" came out and there are a few hundred copies left of the original print run. If the last copies are sold, the publisher ought to be able to do another print run to get the message to an even wider audience. Sorry if this seems like shameless hype, but do know that 100% of the author's profits are donated to truthaction.org, cooperativeresearch.org, and other responsible truth groups. With that in mind, please consider ordering a copy either from Amazon, or preferably the publisher's website, http://www.trineday.com either for yourself or to give to someone you know. The graphic novel format of the book makes it an extremely accessible introduction for people who might not want to wade through some of the 600-page 9/11 books out there. Thanks for your support!
Here's an interesting article I came across about 15 of the world's most infamous top secret sites. There isn't much revealed about any of them, but several do relate to 9/11, from the remains of Flight 93 stored in Iron Mountain to 9/11 suspects at Guantanamo Bay to Site R @ Ravenrock in Pennsylvania which was visited by five helicopters and a convoy of SUVs shortly after the Pentagon was hit.
Author Jeremy Begin will be appearing on Out There TV (www.outtheretv.com) on Thursday 4/17 at 8PM Pacific Time for a one hour live interview. He will be discussing his book Fighting for G.O.D. (Gold, Oil, and Drugs) and strategies for moving the 9/11 Truth Movement forward. Tune in if you can.
At first glance, this doesn't appear to be directly linked to the situation Sibel Edmonds had been trying to shine a light on with Turkey and Pakistan, but it's definitely worth exploring further.
A US company and the Indian head of an international firm have admitted to violating laws on export of weapons technology and nuclear power testing equipment to India, the US Justice Department said Thursday.
Decade-long US sanctions over illegal Indian nuclear tests prohibit US-based companies from exporting certain goods and services to India.
Parthasarathy Sudarshan, the Indian CEO of Cirrus Electronics with offices in the United States, Singapore and India, pleaded guilty in Washington Thursday to a charge of shipping restricted weapons technology to the Indian government.
He admitted exporting controlled microprocessors and electronic components to Indian state entities involved in developing ballistic missiles, space launch vehicles and fighter jets.
Hey bloggers... I just recorded a new hip hop song promoting truthaction.org and street actions on the 11th. I haven't figured out how to upload it to this site, but you can hear it at www.myspace.com/fightingforgod or download it from www.mediafire.com/?0gmemgz4gcm Share it all you like, and let me know what you think.
A major figure in the party opposing Pakistani President and likely 9/11 insider Musharraf was killed today by a lone gunman wearing an explosive vest. Some 15-20 others were killed and many more wounded. Some sources are reporting that Al-Qaeda has claimed responsibility, which might actually make sense since Musharraf (along with Donald Rumsfeld) helped thousands of Al-Qaeda and Taliban fighters escape Afghanistan in November of 2001 in what Sy Hersh dubbed "the airlift of evil". We should keep a close eye on this and see who turns out to have aided this "lone gunman".
Howdy ya'll. Author Jeremy Begin is looking for local activists in Northern California, Oregon, and Washington who would be willing to help facilitate locations for a presentation and book signing in October. Anyone who could scout and secure a spot at local universities, book stores, libraries, community meeting halls, or other locals would be a big help. The website for the book is http://www.fightingforgod.com Please leave a comment if you'd be willing to lend a hand.
A gallery of high resolution scans has just been added to http://www.fightingforgod.com
Please let us know what you think!
The official website for Fighting for G.O.D. (Gold, Oil, and Drugs) is now active. The site will feature up-to-date truth action items along with original articles and artwork related to the subjects covered in the book: the history of banking, Skull and Bones, CIA black ops, 9/11, and more. If you like the look of it, please add a link to your own web page. Thanks!
[This may or may not be directly relevant, but something smells fishy here. Giving lots of weapons to Israel and Saudi Arabia while the Bush family doubtless rakes in millions can't be a good thing.]
WASHINGTON - The Bush administration will ask Congress to expand multibillion-dollar aid and weapons sales packages to friendly nations in the Middle East, partly to counteract Iran, senior administration officials said Friday.
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will announce proposed extensions and enlargements of foreign aid to Israel and Egypt and a proposed arms sales package to Persian Gulf nations including Saudi Arabia before she leaves on a trip to the region on Monday, the officials said.
Details of the proposed deal come as some U.S. officials contend that the Saudi government is not helping the situation in Iraq. The proposed package of advanced weapons for Saudi Arabia has also stoked concern in Israel and among its U.S. backers because it includes satellite-guided bombs, upgrades for its fighters and new naval vessels — systems that theoretically could be used for strikes on Israeli territory.
“Congress is finally embracing what the 9/11 families have been saying all along,” said Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson, D-Miss. “It takes a willingness to do things a different way.”
WASHINGTON - Congress sent President Bush legislation Friday to intensify anti-terror efforts in the U.S., shifting money to high-risk states and cities and expanding screening of air and sea cargo to stave off future Sept. 11-style attacks.
The measure carries out major recommendations of the independent 9/11 Commission.
The bill, passed by the House on a 371-40 vote, ranks among the top accomplishments of the six-month-old Democratic Congress. The Senate approved the measure late Thursday by 85-8, and the White House said the president would sign the bill.

Six years after the Sept. 11 attacks and three years after the 9/11 Commission made its recommendations, “Congress is finally embracing what the 9/11 families have been saying all along,” said Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson, D-Miss. “It takes a willingness to do things a different way.”
Sadly, Jake is no longer with us.
NEW YORK - A black Labrador that burrowed through smoking debris after Sept. 11 and flooded rubble after Hurricane Katrina in search of survivors has died of cancer.
Owner Mary Flood had 12-year-old Jake put to sleep Wednesday after a last stroll through the fields and a dip in the creek near their home in Oakley, Utah. Flood said Jake had been in pain, shaking with a 105-degree fever as he lay on the lawn.
No one can say whether the dog would have gotten sick if he hadn’t been exposed to the toxic air at the World Trade Center, but cancer in dogs Jake’s age is common. [edit: yeah, right]
Some owners of rescue dogs who worked at ground zero claim their animals have died because of their work there. But scientists who have spent years studying the health of Sept. 11 search-and-rescue dogs have found no sign of major illness in the animals.

We all know by now that many of the alleged hijackers made no efforts to conceal their identities or activities as they moved about the country before 9/11, even though a number of them were already on terrorist watch lists, or were being closely monitored by programs like Able Danger. This point is really hammered home by something a friend of mine turned up not too long ago: in a document from the Zacharias Moussaoui trial there is a listing of real name usages by various hijackers. Among these, which I find quite hilarious, is the fact that Atta's e-mail address was firstname.lastname@example.org. Ziad Jarrah likewise used his real name, email@example.com. This latter e-mail address raises further curious questions: currently ab.com is the domain for Rockwell Automation, a major defense contractor. Whether this was their domain name back in 2000 is something which will require further investigation, so if anyone can find that out, please bring it forward.
Here's a link to an archive recording of the show:
I thought the interview went extremely well. The author and host discussed recent successes by truthaction.org, the number of prominent "lefties" coming around to our side lately, and of course the author's new book. People called in from all around the country. Fighting for G.O.D. (Gold, Oil, and Drugs) is a comic book style documentary which delves into the history of banking, Skull and Bones, and various false flag ops including 9/11. It is just starting to appear in bookstores nationwide, but has evidently already caused a bit of a stir since on multiple occasions, all references to it on Wikipedia were deleted within 20 hours. Anyone who wants to order a copy can do so at http://trineday.com
Fighting for G.O.D. (Gold, Oil, and Drugs) has finally shipped, and will be in bookstores nationwide very soon. FFG is a graphic novel style documentary, like "Addicted to War", but focuses on deep politics and 9/11. The book lays a lot of groundwork, showing how the current global elite power structure developed over centuries. The history of banking is explored, along with Skull and Bones, the creation of global trade and finance organizations after the second world war, the history of the CIA, false flag ops ranging from the Gulf of Tonkin to Oklahoma City, and of course a detailed look at 9/11 itself.
This book was created to address a gap in current 9/11 outreach materials... we obviously have lots of great movies on the Internet and DVD, and many scholarly books. But the unfortunate fact remains that huge sectors of this country don't have high speed connections, and most people don't read political books. The comic book presentation of 9/11 material should make it accessible to thousands of people who might never get into it otherwise.
You can order a copy of Fighting for G.O.D. directly from the publisher at http://trineday.com
Not too far from the famed Bohemian Grove, a happier, healthier sort of bohemians were gathered for the three day Harmony Festival at California's Sonoma County Fairgrounds. I had the opportunity to pass out many hundreds of 9/11 pamphlets and deception dollars, and when Dennis Kucinich spoke on June 10th, I had a chance to ask him in front of a big crowd if he could tell us anything new about his 9/11 investigation. When he asked how many people in the crowd shared my concerns, the overwhelming majority clapped and raised their hands. He replied that a congressional hearing on financial issues related to 9/11 would be forthcoming in September.
Throughout the centuries there have been rumors of a secret elite manipulating world events for various nefarious purposes. Theories about groups like the Masons, the Illuminati, the Elders of Zion, and others have ranged from the ridiculous and racist to eerily accurate. Today we live in a world where an openly acknowledged elite wields vast and often unquestioned power. For example, the economic activities of many transnational corporations dwarf the gross domestic product of most nations, and the richest three men in the world control more wealth than the 47 poorest countries combined. The shadowy ritual chambers of 19th century secret societies seem an impossible distance from the gleaming board rooms where CEOs and bankers meet today, and yet a fusion of the two continues, albeit far away from the glaring lights of modern news media.
What we are seeing right now is one of the last, pathetic attempts of this administration to save itself from the truth about 9/11. First they rolled out KSM, with his confessions about 9/11 and every other terrorist plot in the last twenty years. As if they really expect us to believe in the first place something which has been entirely mediated through the Pentagon and CIA after three years in a secret torture prison, there are gaping holes in KSM's story. First off, he "admitted" to a terror plot against a building for which the planning didn't even begin until 2006... and yet he's supposedly been in custody for three or four years now. Secondly, he supposedly admits to killing journalist Daniel Pearl. But someone else has already been brought in for that killing- Omar Sheikh. Notice how US-Pakistani relations have been cooling off lately? Maybe it's to do with the fact that Pakistani President General Musharaff outed Omar Sheik about six months ago as an MI-6 agent.
The SF Peace Rally on 1/27 had a large turn-out, and I was there with several other truthers passing out flyers, dvds, bullhorning, etc. As things were winding down, I approached a group of police officers and politely thanked them for being there to keep things orderly. Then I went on to say how I really respected people who would put their lives on the line to protect people and also to take a vow to uphold the Constitution and Bill of Rights. One of them asked me if I had been to his graduation (from police academy) and demanded to know how I knew what sort of vows he had taken. A bit taken aback, I said that it was common knowledge that this was part of a police officer's duty, but he kept denying it.
Police are there to enforce laws, and the Constitution is the supreme law of the land, and I could quote several supremes saying that in fact any "law" which doesn't agree with the Constitution is in fact not a law at all. Ergo, police are required to uphold the Constitution, as if this weren't explicitly spelled out already.
Ron Paul is considering a bid for the 08 Presidency, and I would encourage my fellow Truthers to write or call him to encourage this idea. His website is http://www.house.gov/paul and his Washington office can be reached at 202.225.2831. I send him this letter, and posted it to MySpace encouraging others there to do likewise:
Call your Congressmen and demand a new investigation today and every 11th!
This isn't a totally scientific survey, it's more of an activism tool. I live in California's 9th Congressional District, home to Barbara Lee, who cast the lone dissenting vote against the invasion of Afghanistan. Since she seems to have some integrity, I've been working to convince her to support a new investigation into the attacks. I suspected that the majority of people in this area doubt the official story,so I did a survey of random people on the street to use as evidence to present to Rep. Lee. Those whose answers did indeed reveal skepticism about the government story I invited to sign a petition to the rep. encouraging her to do the right thing. Thirdly, I gave everyone who participated a copy of either Terrorstorm, 911 Mysteries, or Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime. Multi-functional activism. Anyways, here's the survey and the results I got from 50 people this month:
Surveys of Perceptions about 9/11 and the Bush Administration
General Knowledge Questions
1. What year did the 9/11 attacks happen in? (86% Correct, 14% Wrong)
2. How many planes were hijacked on 9/11? (50% Correct, 50% Wrong)
3. How many buildings completely collapsed on 9/11? (26% Correct, 74% Wrong)
You've probably heard that the new 007 movie contains a reference to the shady airline put options. Figuring that lots of people would be going out to see the movie today (Thanksgiving), I threw together a flyer highlighting the put options story and headed over to the movie theatre. The movie does indeed contain a very blatant mention of the trades, and the entire plot line revolves around shady banker-spook-types manufacturing terrorist events for profit. I don't know if the movie makers were doing this to get the truth out, or to muddy the waters, but when the credits rolled I was there passing out flyers as everyone left, and I would encourage others to do the same this weekend when the crowds will be at their height. The flyer I handed out is printed below. I threw it together in like 15 minutes, so it might have so typos, but feel free to use it or to create your own.

What's that they said? People made millions of dollars off of insider trader right before 9/11? That's right folks- by short-selling options on American and United Airlines in the days and weeks before the attacks, certain unnamed parties cashed in big time. Those were the airlines involved in the attacks, in case you missed it, and no similar trading was done on any other airlines.
The following article appeared today in the Rivereast, a moderate Connecticut paper. It's pretty exciting that they actually included some real questions the author brought up about 9/11 instead of falling back on the usual smears. Press releases have been sent to Bay Area papers (where the author currently resides) and it is expected that releases will be sent out to larger papers nationwide for the actual release of the book in Spring '07.
In a day where Comedy Central's Daily Show is a more trusted news source then network news, can a comic book be more trustworthy than a $14 million government report? That's the question local author Jeremy Begin raises with his new book Fighting for G.O.D. (Gold, Oil, and Drugs), a graphic novel-style documentary about 9/11 which points out contradictions and omissions in the official account of the attacks.
Like most Americans, Jeremy didn't initially doubt that the attacks were the sole responsibility of Muslim extremists. He didn't buy Bush's statement that the terrorists hated our freedom, but he did accept that Al-Qaeda had carried out the attacks in retaliation for decades of horrendous U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East. "Over the next year or two, I heard various people say that the Bush Administration had engineered the attacks," Jeremy said, "but I basically just brushed those people off as conspiracy theorists".
