Evidence-based article in DailyMail (UK) challenges official 9/11 story

In an article published September 8, 2017 and updated the next day, the Daily Mail (UK) strongly challenges the official government narrative of 9/11/2001: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4867124/9-11-conspiracy-theories-persist-16-years-atrocity.html .

The article features Prof. David Ray Griffin's latest book: "Bush And Cheney: How They Ruined America And The World." They also reference Leroy Hulsey's excellent analysis of the official (NIST) story that fire destroyed WTC-7: "This week, eminent Alaska University engineers dismissed this explanation. Dr J. Leroy Hulsey, Chair of the university’s Civil and Environmental Engineering Department, said: ‘Fire did not and could not have caused the failure of this building.’ "

Further, they cite a British physicist, Matt Campbell, who " insists that 9/11 did not happen in the way we have been told and that there has been a huge official cover-up to disguise the truth." Quoting Dr. Campbell: "‘The BBC has presented information to the public that breaks its own editorial guidelines. In at least one documentary, it removed the sounds of huge explosions going off in WTC7 moments before its collapse.

One year anniversary of 9/11 publication in EuroPhysicsNews

Today, August 24, marks the one-year anniversary of the publication of a widely-read paper in the EuroPhysicsNews journal.
"15 years later: on the physics of high-rise building collapses," by Steven Jones, Robert Korol, Anthony Szamboti and Ted Walter.

Europhysics News states the following:
"Europhysics News is the magazine of the European physics community. It is owned by the European Physical Society and produced in cooperation with EDP Sciences. It is distributed to all our Individual Members and many institutional subscribers. Most European national societies receive EPN for further distribution. The total circulation is currently about 25000 copies per issue."

Let's see how our paper is doing. First click on the following link:

Then off to the right, click on "Show Article Metrics."

As of 22 August 2017, there were 591,685 views/reads of the article (not counting the 25,000 in the paper-version circulation of the journal). I'm quite sure that by 9/11/2017, there will be over 600,000 reads/views of the article at the Europhysicsnews website alone.

"Impeach Cheney First" - Revisited

Suddenly, impeachment is no longer “off the table.” Indeed, it has emerged as a prominent topic in the news media.

I assert that it is time to revisit how the 9/11 Truth Community can seek justice for the evident 9/11 crimes and wars – and that impeachment is ONE approach for seeking “redress of grievances,” one granted in the US Constitution.

In early 2006, the “Impeach Cheney First” movement was in full swing and I was an active part of it. This goal of impeaching Vice President Dick Cheney gave purpose and focus to the 9/11 Truth Movement, and united us with other groups such as the anti-war movement. Perhaps it is a fitting time to revisit seeking justice for those who are clearly implicated as having leading roles in orchestrating or facilitating the tragedy of 9/11/2001.

In my talks and media interviews, I often referred to the testimony before the 9/11 Commission of (then) Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta regarding Dick Cheney, which testimony was NOT included in the 9/11 Commission report. But we have copies of the video-taped recording of his testimony.

In fact, I requested a review of my 9/11 research at BYU

There are statements in the current (23 January 2016) Wikipedia article regarding "Steven E. Jones" (myself) that I feel are misleading, which prompts me to issue a clarification.

In the opening paragraph, we read:

"In late 2006, some time after Brigham Young University (BYU) officials placed him on paid leave, Jones chose to retire as part of deal with BYU which included BYU abandoning their academic review of Jones' later work.[8]"

And later, we find the statement:
"However, Jones resigned before the BYU review could be completed.[8]"

These statements make it appear that I did not wish to have an academic review of my research on 9/11. If any reader knows of other comments to this effect, I would appreciate being informed of these sources. In fact, I had requested to have an "impartial review" in writing, dated October 7, 2006, some time prior to my accepting early retirement at BYU.

Another statement in the Wikipedia article reads:

"Jones "welcomed the review" because he hoped it would "encourage people to read his paper for themselves," however the review was abandoned as part of a deal where Jones elected to retire, effective January 1, 2007.[36]"

I know what it feels like to be dying... RMSF and Biological Warfare

I thought the title might attract your attention, but it's true - I have experienced going downhill physically so VERY fast, that I felt like I was going to die. Sharp pains in muscles and joints, especially shoulders and knees; severe chills; diarrhea and nausea; fever; falling asleep while driving, sitting, even while eating. Great difficulty standing up from a sitting position due to pain and worsening weakness. Severe headaches. From my journal record for November 2013: "Pain was great in November and numbness in both hands."

I totally lost feeling in three fingers right hand (which would not close for months). Also from my journal, "22 January [2014], soreness in joints extending more into left thumb and fingers. Getting progressively worse."

And the doctors - five different doctors -- could not figure out what was wrong with me. Examinations, blood tests and an expensive MRI... nothing definite. Take lots of Alleve, they said.

Let's help AE911Truth exceed 20,000 supporters this month

I visited Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth today, admiring the bold efforts of this large and active group. I have signed up (years ago) - how about you?

We have 2,245 architects and engineers along with 19,552 "other supporters" -- anyone with an interest in 9/11 truth-seeking can sign up and lend support.

So close to 20,000 -- an additional 449 signatures are needed to top TWENTY THOUSAND supporters. Can we do it by the end of the month? I realize this is a tall order, but if we all step up and encourage a few people to sign, I'm confident we can reach this goal. Perhaps even by September 11th...

Then in the upper left-hand corner, click on "View the Petition and Sign."

Let's do it!

AE911Truth.org continues to grow, and a response to Judy Wood

Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth recently passed another milestone, achieving over 20,000 members. As of today, there are 2,132 architects and engineers signed up AND 18,144 other supporters, for a total of 20,276.

I continue to support AE911Truth and congratulate their recent campaigns for public awareness and pending lawsuits against NIST. I have expressed my concerns regarding NIST analyses and lack of transparency through the years. I am glad to see this further action being taken.

Richard Gage recently gave a nice summary of the progress of AE911Truth.org, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q18pZXIaiOY#t=1586 . He quipped, "Steven Jones had a PowerPoint. I stole it seven years ago." Yes, he used my slides but it was with my permission. When I was "early retired" in January 2007, I found it increasingly burdensome to travel and Richard has picked up that role, and I for one appreciate that!

Chuck Baldwin: "9/11 was a tyrant's dream"

Chuck Baldwin ran for US President in 2008 as a third-party candidate endorsed by Ron Paul, opposing both Barack Obama and John McCain. Yesterday, he wrote regarding 9/11 as follows:

"As the date of this column is so close to the infamous date of 9/11, I was going to write about the spiral into a police state that the would-be tyrants in Washington, D.C., are plunging us into. Of course, 9/11 is the excuse for every big-government abridgment of liberty that has taken place over the last 12 years. 9/11 was the justification for the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan; it was the justification for passing the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, and the NDAA. 9/11 justifies the Department of Homeland Security, the TSA, and USNORTHCOM. 9/11 is the excuse given for launching deadly drone attacks against all kinds of people in Pakistan, Yemen, Libya, etc. And now, 9/11 is the excuse for a brand new military action against Syria.

Radio interview on 22 April 2013, challenging the official 9/11 narrative

Two weeks ago, I spoke on a radio show regarding 9/11 – providing evidence that strongly challenges the official 9/11 narrative. Perhaps a quick outline of topics discussed/prepared for will be helpful – note that I spoke about much more than the WTC demolitions. I think this is important. (Summary of main points; not necessarily in the order followed on the radio show.)

0. Define the official narrative: A – There is no cover-up of 9/11 facts by gov't”; B-”the evil of that day was ONLY by Al Qaeda; there were no explosives in WTC towers or WTC7.” The radio interviewer and his studio guest Martin Tanner declared their support of the official story at the beginning.

1. Gov't cover-up/lies about the WTC dust danger: "WASHINGTON (AP) -- At the White House's direction, the Environmental Protection Agency gave New Yorkers misleading assurances that there was no health risk from the debris-laden air after the World Trade Center collapse, according to an internal inquiry.

The Boston and 9/11 Investigations: Similarities and Significant Differences

As I have watched the Boston Marathon tragedy unfold, my heart goes out to the victims and their families. I had similar feelings on 9/11/2001 and continue to pray for comfort for victims and due-process punishment of perpetrators in both tragedies.

Yes, there are similarities -- but there are also significant differences, particularly as we see how the investigation of the Boston crime scene unfolds. Boston: investigators seek to preserve every scrap of metal from the explosive device, each nail and steel ball bearing. They look for clues in how it was constructed, where materials were obtained, what were the goals, who ALL was involved. Very little jumping to conclusions as to WHO all was involved and WHY. Investigators and the public are determined to leave no stone unturned as criminal investigators welcome public input and seek to capture and bring to justice ALL perpetrators.

Philip Marshall, 9/11 author, and two children found dead in Calif.

A 6 Feb 2013 report in the Santa Barbara Review discusses the slaying of a 9/11 author Philip Marshal and his two children Alex and Macaila in their home in the "gated community of Forest Meadows", California, east of Sacramento. I have been through this area several times as my Brother-in-Law lived in nearby Pollock Pines.

Philip was just completing his book, “The Big Bamboozle: 9/11 and the War on Terror.”

I wonder if the 9/11 Truth Community can help this brave man's family -- do any of us know him? We can also encourage a thorough investigation and fair reporting of the man's death. He was an outspoken member of our world-wide truth-seeking community. The photo in the article shows two beautiful youth with their father Philip.

Reaching more people by broadening our discussion points

In October of this year, I gave two talks in Missouri discussing 9/11, challenging the official narrative. Certainly I talked about the fall of the Towers and WTC7, but there is more to it than that. May I emphasize areas that are evidence-based and that I find also important in our discussions of 9/11:

1. How the government lied about factual dangers of the WTC dust, how thousands of people were in fact hurt by the WTC dust (see below);
2. The whistleblower testimony of Sec'y of Transportation Norman Mineta (50 miles out, 30 miles out, etc., reported to Dick Cheney);
3. The lack of air defenses that day, including at the Pentagon (2 and 3 are generally all I say about the Pentagon);
4. The whistleblower testimony of Sec'y of Treasury Paul O'Neill (he noted -from day one it was about getting us into Iraq; his opposing pre-emptive war, and how he was canned by Dick Cheney);
5. The whistleblower testimonies of Kevin Ryan, April Gallop, Susan Lindauer and Sibel Edmonds;
6. The attempts to discredit/marginalize whistleblowers (including myself) that also speaks of conspiracy to cover-up facts regarding 9/11;
7. Historical use of false-flag events by Germany, USA, and others to further political agendas; the Big Lie principle and why many people hesitate to question "official narratives";
8. The strange coincidence that emergency gear and hundreds of personnel were assembled in Manhattan on 9/10/01 (the day BEFORE the tragedy);
9. The destruction of evidence, that over 99.5% of the steel from the Towers and WTC7 was shipped to Asia for melting, contrary to the protests of scientists and engineers;
10. The remarkable growth and efforts of AE911Truth.org -- with over 1,700 architects and engineers and over 16,000 supporters now calling for an investigation. When questions arise about Judy Wood's book on DEW, I often refer to the FAQ at AE911Truth on this subject: http://www.ae911truth.org/news-section/41-articles/505-ae911truth-faq-6-whats-your-assessment-of-the-directed-energy-weapo... .
11. Public polls show that large numbers of the public question the "official 9/11 story." We are making progress despite the opposition.

Mini-nukes in the WTC? one more time...

In general, I would say there are two ways to find out whether the “official story of 9/11” is true and complete, or not: 1) by looking at hard evidence and doing experiments to test hypotheses based on that evidence; and 2) analyzing historical and eye-witness testimony.

In my talks, I have emphasized method 1, using the scientific method. But I also emphasize method 2, pointing (for example) to the whistle-blower testimony of Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta regarding the lack of air defenses that day. And the important evidence regarding the purchase of put options on American and United Airlines during the week prior to 9/11/2001. There are many examples of both types of evidence that point to the conclusion that the official story of 9/11 is misleading and false.

Regarding the possibility that mini-nukes were used in the WTC Towers to bring them down, I wrote a paper in 2006 which was peer-reviewed and then published in January 2007. I sincerely wish more people would read the peer-reviewed papers I and colleagues have published, as a way of sorting out that which is based on hard evidence and that which is not. Here is the mini-nukes paper:

PhD Physicist Grabbe: Peer-reviewed paper in Journal of Engineering Mechanics

My tenacious colleague Dr. Grabbe has succeeded in getting a paper successfully through peer-review with editors of the Journal of Engineering Mechanics. His paper confronts Bazant who previously published a paper supportive of the "official 9/11 narrative" in the same journal.

Sincere congratulations to Crockett for another significant peer-reviewed paper; it was accepted for publication in October 2012 in the Journal of Engineering Mechanics.

Dr. Crockett Grabbe is a physicist who received his PhD from CalTech in 1978. He received a Bachelors of Science with Highest Honors from the University of Texas in 1972.

Dr. Grabbe has also published a notable book providing his scientific analyses of the destruction of the WTC Towers and WTC7. Loaded with photographs, this is his fourth book written for the general public.

Letter regarding red/gray chip analyses

The following letter (with minor edits) has been sent to a scientist who recently contacted me regarding his intention to perform a study of the WTC dust, particularly the red/gray chips that we found in WTC dust samples. Included are some comments on a report by James R. Millette on red material which he found in WTC dust, sent to me by this scientist as a PDF file.

Dear [Interested Scientist],

Yes, I would encourage you to do a follow-up study on the World Trade Center dust, after you have carefully read our “Active Thermitic Materials...” paper. [Niels Harrit, Jeffrey Farrer, Steven Jones, et al. "Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe", THE OPEN CHEMICAL PHYSICS JOURNAL, April 2009.]

Among the most salient observations in that paper are these:

1. the observation of elemental-iron-rich spheres in the ash following ignition of the red/gray chips in the Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC),
2. the sharp peaking of the heat-traces in each case for the ignition of red/gray chips in the DSC (Figure 19).
