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 mohammedatta@hotmail.com. Ziad Jarrah likewise used his real name, ziadjarrah@ab.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.

Fighting for G.O.D. (Gold, Oil, and Drugs) on We the People Radio Network

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.

Fighting for G.O.D. (Gold, Oil, and Drugs)

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.

Kucinich on 9/11 at Sonoma County Fairgrounds, June 10th

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.


Key Players: Skull and Bones

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.

Desperate Disinformation Campaign

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.

Police: "Not my duty to uphold the Constitution"

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.

Encourage Ron Paul to Run

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:

Dear Sir,

It's the 11th!

Call your Congressmen and demand a new investigation today and every 11th!


New 9/11 Survey

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)

Super-Spy Activism

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.

Positive Article about New 9/11 Book

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".
