Members of Cincinnati 9/11 Truth will be on Mike McConnell’s National Radio Show this Saturday. It will be live on Saturday, January 18, 2008, at 1 PM. You can listen online. Just heard him plug the show.
I plan on live blogging the show at the Cincinnati 9/11 Truth blog, with references and sources from the broadcast.
Glenn decided Ohio would be a great stop on his tour and members of Cincinnati 9/11 Truth and Ohio Change tried their best to give him a warm welcome. This was my first,"you have ten seconds before getting tackled" so give me a little slack on my questions. He really never responded or acknowledge my existence but heard me the same. A voice he will recognize in the future I'm sure. Thank you for checking it out please make sure to bid on the DVD and book. If you can please donate to my "chip in" so I can get Ohio change off the ground.
I'm not sure if this is the final video. It looks different than the one that was on YouTube for about ten minutes. It isn't on the We Are Change site. But, it is video from the Bill Clinton confrontation.
Here's the video:
I also posted of the unedited video of the opening ceremonies. You can view part one and part two. Part one features a speech by Cincinnati City Manager Milton R. Dohoney, Jr. Part two features a letter from Sherrod Brown and a speech from Steve Chabot. All of the Cincinnati Area Truth group video is here.
The Cincinnati area has a 9/11 truth group. Who knew?
Here's a short video I made near the end of the event. The crowd was slowing down, and we were about to head home, when I started filming this video. Next time I'll make a point to take more pictures.
Here's a run down on our September 11, 2007 action. First, at about 10:00 AM, we met at a major interstate exit heading into he city, and had a few signs. One said "9/11 truth ends this war... Free DVDs here." Lots of people were stopping, looking for some information. We handed out many DVDs.
This story is a little out of date, but is making tracks at digg. -r.
Meet Torin Wolf. He has a broad and varied background as a US Army Combat Nurse during Operation Iraqi Freedom,....
...building construction contractor, certified structural welder, certified asbestos and hazardous materials worker, experienced demolitions expert, teacher, radio show host, and well studied 9/11 truth activist. Torin knows how to put a building up, and bring the same building down in its own footprint. Torin's free presentation, “Taking the Red Pill” was hosted by Brave New Books on 1904 Guadalupe in Austin last Saturday, June 23rd at 7 pm.
Torin is proud of his native Cherokee heritage and his mother is the Band Historian of the White River Band Cherokee from the central United States. Since he received his GED at age 14, saying he is a smart guy is putting it lightly. For over 12 years he worked as a hazardous materials contractor specializing in asbestos abatement and concrete construction sampling. Add to his resume the fact that he designed and implemented well over 100 controlled demolitions. He was not just helping at a lower level in the demolitions - he was the guy responsible for calling the shots. Afterwards, he became a certified structural steel welder and worked in heavy and mega construction for over 5 years in locations around the world including several skyscrapers.
Ironically, Torin signed his papers to join the army on September 11th, 2000. He knew something was wrong with the official 9/11 story when his army handlers took his squad into a room just in time to watch the buildings collapse. With his demolitions experience, he immediately knew those towers could not have fallen like that without explosives. He went on to serve “with honor and distinction” with the 21st Combat Support Hospital in Mosul, Iraq during the first part of Operation Iraqi Freedom and earned the Bronze Star with V device for valor in combat.
While saving over 120 lives, Torin earned the Combat Medical Badge by providing medical care to US, allied, enemy soldiers, and civilians under combat conditions. Torin's arms display Samoan life saving tattoos, each line and symbol representing a group of lives saved. The army would like you to think he wasn't in Iraq, but unfortunately for them, Torin appears in a recent documentary filmed there. A true hero helping save lives in the middle east, Torin can be seen in section 4 of a PBS documentary called “Life and Death in the War Zone.”
With Torins impressive list of qualifications, his unwavering voice holds a power that shatters the lies of 9/11 sold to us by the government and mainstream media, “The official story we've been told about 9/11 is absolutely, physically impossible.”
The video talks about the Pentagon, and some interesting info about Uranium. It's about 5 mins long. I had never seen this one until a minute ago. Great pictures.
From Danger Room:
Global Hawk Drone Hit Pentagon, Says Conspiracist
A retro Asbestos/Twin Towers ad from The Consumerist
One of Copyranter's readers found this disturbing old-skool ad for asbestos, featuring the former World Trade Center.
...judging by the look and type, I'd say is circa 1970s-mid80s. Copy reads: "Asbestos contains fire, cannot burn and holds up after metal and glass have melted down, giving vital time for people to escape." Also, note the tagline. [When life depends on it, you use asbestos]. The ad is from a Canadian company, Asbestos Corporation Limited. Surprised they're still operating and haven't been sued into a pile of dust.
It hits me very hard personally: my Father has asbestosis in his lungs from 37 years of pipe-fitter work for a big DuPont chemical plant. The company's plant physicians kept his condition a secret from him for many, many years.

I did some work to the site Politics.Wikia.Com tonight. I added the +9/11+Blogger+Feed, and +edited+the+front+page. The front page now sports an endorsement for Ron Paul, who's +page I also added. It now has a quote from Benjamin Franklin, which is, "Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety." The front page also has a review of David Ray Griffins book, The New Pearl Harbor. I figured the front page hasn't changed in months, so it's about time. Also worth checking out is my edits to +this+opinion.
I took a few moments to copy the 9/11 Truth Movement page from Wikipedia to Politics.Wikia.Com. The link is below. I also linked to it from the "other" political movements page. I didn't really edit it at all. Though, since it came from Wikipedia, I doubt it shows the movement in the best light. If you have some time, have at it. It might be a good spot to put some info and to link some sites.
Here we go again. From the editor:
So how did the BBC report that Building 7 at the World Trade Centre had collapsed around half an hour before it did so? My earlier posting on the subject has attracted a lot of interest so we've been doing more investigating within the BBC to put together the sequence of events.
Five and a half years have passed so it's quite difficult to answer every outstanding question. But we do know quite a bit more than we did on Tuesday, as a result of checking the BBC archives and what other media were doing at the time. I've also read through some of the reports published after 9/11 to help put together the sequence of events.

From my favorite source for political satire:
The Internets are buzzing with the bizarre story of BBC News reporting the 9/11 collapse of WTC7 before the building actually collapsed - all over a live shot of Ground Zero, with the 47-story highrise clearly in view and clearly standing.
What it "proves" is anyone’s guess, but it sure makes for hilarious viewing. But BBC reporters and anchors who maybe didn’t know the Manhattan skyline so well could possibly be forgiven for reporting an erroneous story and not knowing that great big highrise was World Trade Center 7 (otherwise known as the Salomon Brothers building). So why doesn’t the BBC simply say it got a story wrong and didn’t know any better? Stranger still, why did New York-based CNN anchor Aaron Brown do the same exact thing on September 11, 2001? We’ve got all the creepy video and much more to make your head asplode, after the jump.
First, the BBC video which has been posted and then +deleted+by+Google and then posted and then deleted by YouTube again and again this week. The great big highrise next to the lady reporter’s head is WTC7:
Three magazine sites were created by the founder of Wikipedia. One's on entertainment, one's on local news, and one's on politics. I link the one on politics, because I think it will be of most interest to this group.
Also, at some point in time, I had thought about creating a wiki site on Wikia to serve the 9/11 Truth Movement. The idea was to have a wiki dedicated to responding to mainstream media hit pieces. We don't have one spokes person, and many views differ, but it may be a good way to get a quality response together to articles we disagree with. That one could be by invite only.
I created +one+entry. Get an account, and "digg" it up!
Esquire has a story on why we won't have a revolution in the US.
"Suppose we had evidence that the federal government engineered 9/11," he said. "Suppose we had indisputable proof that we paid the Saudis to blow up the World Trade Center, and members from both political parties had signed off on it. And the day after this proof emerged, George W. Bush announced that he would give a speech at ground zero explaining why this decision was made. If this happened, I assume there would be a protest rally during his speech. And perhaps some people would start throwing rocks, and perhaps I'd be caught up in the frenzy, and perhaps I would start throwing rocks, too."
"So you would take part in the revolution's inception," I responded. "You would throw rocks at a corrupt president."
"Yes," he said. "Maybe. Or maybe not. Probably not. Who knows? I'm not really a rock-throwing kind of guy."
I'm not a rock-throwing kind of guy, either. Moreover, I assume the type of person who hurls rocks in public is not the type of person I would agree with about anything. Modernity has created a cosmic difference between intellect and action, even when both are driven by the same motives; as such, the only people qualified to lead a present-day revolution would never actually do so. Contemporary leaders are not rock-throwing guys. And this is a problem, because it's the rock throwers who get things done.
The first thing I thought of when I read this story was Paul Wellstone.
Staff: Senator hospitalized with stroke-like symptoms
Sen. Tim Johnson, D-South Dakota, was hospitalized Wednesday after he suffered stroke-like symptoms in his Washington office, his staff said.
Johnson, who turns 60 on December 28, was taken to George Washington University Hospital by ambulance about 11:30 a.m., sources in his office said.
A statement issued by Johnson's office said he was suffering from a "possible stroke."
"At this stage he is undergoing a comprehensive evaluation by the stroke team," the statement said. Staffers said that Johnson was conscious when he was transported to the hospital.
A lawyer and longtime state lawmaker, Johnson was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1986. He served five terms before he was elected to the Senate in 1996.
He is the senior senator from South Dakota and serves on numerous committees, including appropriations, budget, banking, energy and natural resources, and Indian affairs.
If you want something to do in your free time, you could help get a disputed or POV tag placed on the 9/11 Wikipedia article. Why should we do this. It is often one of the top two results in a +Google+search+for+9/11. This article is guarded by three or four admins, who don't seem to have a understanding of what Wikipedia was created for. Everytime a change is suggested, and evidence and reasons for the change is given, they won't respond to dispute the evidence. They just say they are not interested. They say that this is a stable article, which clearly goes against the idea of a wiki.
Here's some things to do. Create a Wikipedia account. Agree that the article should be unprotected or that a disputed tag should be placed on the article because it it is being protected because of the clear disputes. Read the September 11th attacks article, and find mainstream sources that can be used to dispute information in it.
9/11 Conspiracy 9/11 Truth War on Terror
[UPDATE] A few things are worth noting. "9/11 Conspiracy" and "9/11 Truth" do not show up in the news reference volume. Also, "9/11 Conspiracy" doesn't show up until almost 2004. Now, look at this old Slashdot post, Google Censors Abu Ghraib Images. It makes me think that at some point in time, the evidence wasn't available on Google, and that's why the trend didn't show up.
In regards to the post, what is it that went wrong, I have an idea I'd like to float by the community.
I have a feeling something went quite wrong on that day, ie not according to plan. I dont mean Shanksville and all that, but WTC7. I mean, it cant have been part of a master plan to bring it down as obvious as it was done, i think. So, what should have happend? Another plane? Hm, i dont think so. What else ? Im sure people here have a few ideas to offer.
For many years I've heard people speculate as to where Flight 93 was headed. People would say that it was headed for Camp David, The White House, or even The Statue of Liberty, oh my! To that, I would always reply, "what if it was headed towards WTC 7?" That's the point that people would flip-out. Should I go on? I will.
The military says the plane wasn't shot down. Truthers say the plane didn't crash in Shanksville. When a group is very adamant about a view, I tend to believe them. When two groups are so adamant about seemingly opposing views, I'll try to look for a third view that fits the story. So, if the plane didn't crash, and if it wasn't shot down, then what happened? The mission was aborted. The flight took off late, and it would be gross negligence if that plane hit its intended target (its target being WTC 7). In fact, the 9/11 Commission almost indicted military officials because the current story doesn't add up. If another plane would've hit another building in New York an hour later, and the military didn't stop it, the story would not have held as long as it has. It would turn the story from the military responding slowly, to the military standing down.
CNN is reporting that more human remains were found at the World Trade Center in New York.
A Consolidated Edison crew doing excavation of the manhole at street level found the remains, some as big as arm or leg bones, said Steve Coleman, a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which owns the site.
Con Ed said it entered the site Wednesday to remove material from two manholes that had been damaged and abandoned after the 2001 collapse of the twin towers.
Crews hauled the excavated materials Wednesday to a work center more than a mile away, as is customary, Con Edison said. On Thursday morning, a contractor working for the Port Authority realized the materials contained remains, Con Edison spokesman Chris Olert said, and the medical examiner's office was contacted.
I just joined in on a meetup.com group for the first time. It was the 9/11 Truth group in Cincinnati. I met some really interesting people, and I hope more people who read this site will do the same. Right now we are working on getting some movies showen at local universities. I hope everyone here will visit the 9/11 Truth section of meetup.com, and join a group. If there is not a local group in your town, than create one. Really, it's a lot of fun, and you get to meet like minded people. Most people say, I understand the information, but now what? Join a group and get active. Also, if you run a blog or a 9/11 site, please link this groups front page: http://9-11.meetup.com/.
