This will be Mike's longest-ever appearance on national television. It should be interesting! Tune in.
Are you ever going to make a "9/11 Truth (and Justice)" documentary based on what
Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth) and others have discovered
as to what really happened on 9/11?
Over 1,600 verified architectural and engineering professionals have put their reputations,
careers, and very lives on the line by signing the AE911Truth online petition demanding
a new, real investigation into what really happened on September 11, 2001, due to the
Send tweets to Keith Olbermann:
@KeithOlbermann -- Richard Gage from Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth AE911Truth.org : in New York around 9/11. PLEASE interview him!!!
Also, Thumbs Up this Current TV request:
Maybe he will do it now that he's on a smaller network and more in charge.
Spread the word so we get as many people tweeting him and voting for the CTV request.
Then cross your fingers and/or pray.
I will leave it to those who are interested in such things, particularly as they pertain to 9/11 Truth, to examine this article and decide what ramifications it might have, if any.
Although the article deals specifically with medicine, it can be applied to any and all peer review processes, situations, and scenarios.
I encourage EVERYONE to contact Michael Moore at his website:
and tell him that it is time to do a film about 9/11 Truth.
It is the perfect time because it is the 10th Anniversary.
Keep your message simple:
Since this is the 10th Anniversary of 9/11,
don't you think it's about time (past time) for
Michael to do a film on 9/11 Truth?
Use a Subject of Other.
If enough people do this, maybe he will seriously consider it.
It was better than nothing. But barely. It was a little over-dramatic at times, venturing into melodrama land. They could have done without that. And there seemed to be some outright "acting" at times. That's not good.
I know they only had an hour, but, still, there was a lot of fluff that could have been removed to make room for more information and facts and evidence.
And they didn't even mention AE911Truth or Richard Gage, or David Ray Griffin and his many books, either. Or Kevin Ryan. I doubt if Willie Rodriguez mentioned or suggested they talk to AE911Truth/Gage, but one would hope that Steven Jones did, and maybe he did and they cut that, and/or ignored it. (BIG WTF??? factor there)
If you look at it "objectively", their investigation was shoddy crap, and their so-called investigation team was very poor, at best, if they couldn't even "discover" AE911Truth and RG. (and more)

President Obama’s promise to restore science to its rightful place raises a question regarding the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Is forensic science already well in hand, but just not the honesty to apply it? Soon, the nominee for the Secretary of Commerce, Gov. Gary Locke, goes before the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation for confirmation. This position provides management oversight of NIST, among other things. Once confirmed, this person will select the new Director of NIST. The Senate should question Gov. Locke on his assessment of NIST’s past practices and intentions going forward.
Not really, but it's as good a theory as what NIST proposed. They can find the Ice Age at Ground Zero, but they can't find evidence of unexploded thermite/thermate or the traces of its use?
NYC Trade Center dig exposes Ice Age landscape
Mon Sep 22, 5:19 PM ET
NEW YORK - Crews excavating the World Trade Center site this summer for the foundations of a new skyscraper have uncovered features carved into the bedrock by glaciers about 20,000 years ago, including a 40-foot-deep pothole.
Exposing the solid rock beneath at the ground zero site in lower Manhattan is critical for supporting what will be Tower 4 of the new World Trade Center, being built by Silverstein Properties.
"You want to make sure you're not perching something on a ledge," said Anthony Pontecorvo, a supervising structural engineer at Mueser Rutledge Consulting Engineers, which is working on the project.
While removing the overlying soil is an engineering necessity, the digging has given scientists a rare window into the deep past and formations like the huge pothole.
I've heard from many people and websites that people are not supporting the movement like they should. I hear this over and over again across the board. It's really a HUGE problem. They NEED our help!!!
Financial support is highly lacking. I know times are tough, but there are enough of us that, even if you can spare $10 per month actual hard cash money, it would go a long way toward making things move forward. (most people 'blow' quite a bit of money every month on candy and snacks and coffee drinks and sodas and that sort of thing) I don't understand why movements like for animals and the environment get so much financial support from their supporters, but we are not seeing that in our movement. (it makes us look bad)
Janeane Garofalo appeared as a panelist on the 9/12 episode of HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" and, during a short discussion about 9/11, she said nothing about 9/11 Truth. Not even a hint or a whisper or a wink.
Maybe her good friend Bill commanded her to keep her mouth shut and she did as she was told like a good little girl.
It would have been a perfect chance to at least minimally inform people about the truth.
Of course, she is on the current season of the TV show "24", so maybe she is just protecting her pocket book and D-list career.
Salman Rushdie towed the party line and spat out the official story line like a good little boy, as well. He's probably more interested in people purchasing his new book these days.
And Roseanne Barr did not disappoint with her semi-incoherent ramblings about whatever it was she was trying to say.
So, all in all, it was same ol', same ol'.
I suppose there is nothing they can really do about this. To ignore it would possibly be a bigger mistake than talking about it. I bet there are people out there trying to get them to not talk about it and not mention it, though. Or keep it to a very low roar.
CNN's Wolf Blitzer did a segment on his "The Situation Room" show. All-in-all it wasn't too bad of a report, other than it followed the party line. (anyone who expected anything else needs a personal reset)
However, it definitely was a mistake for them to mention "conspiracy theories" about it. That is going to peak people's interest, so it will help get us quite a few converts. Especially those who didn't know that WTC 7 even fell that day, which is probably somewhere between 50% and 80% of the American populace. (based on the percentage that I still get when I talk to people -- it's still amazingly high)
So, as usual, baby steps.......
Perhaps I should apologize for using the politically incorrect term of "retarded". But it makes my point nicely.
One section on their Questions and Answers about the NIST WTC 7 Investigation page is written SO poorly, that I actually felt embarrassed for them and a little sorry for them. ( http://www.nist.gov/public_affairs/factsheet/wtc_qa_082108.html )
I thought they had actual scientists and engineers at NIST. If so, when they read the following section (below), what must they think? How can they not be so severely embarrassed that they don't even want to come to work anymore? (perhaps there will be a mass diaspora from NIST soon — what we really need is for them to get some cajones and become whistleblowers)
Here are my observations and questions based on this one section from their site below:
1) Why do we know about "nano thermite" and explosive thermite, but the NIST "scientists" do not? (don't they know how to Google?)
Can someone who lives in the Los Angeles, CA area stop by the Simon Wiesenthal Center Museum of Tolerance, particularly the book store, and check them out to see what they think about 9/11 Truth groups now. I hear it is a cool place to visit. They have a place in New York now, too. Considering their viewpoints before, we should keep an eye on their activities.
If they are saying bad thinks about 9/11 Truth in their museum, maybe you could take some photos and post them. Their website says "NO CAMERAS ARE ALLOWED INSIDE THE MUSEUM", but with today's cell phones you could probably sneak a peek of something interesting. I'm sure they have nothing to hide. It's not illegal to take photos, so the worst that could happen is they would ask you to leave if they caught you. Note that they cannot force you to delete any images. Stand your ground. They also might have some flyers or brochures or other free info.
They used to have a CD titled "Digital Terrorism & Hate 2007" on their online store, but I don't see it anymore or a 2008 version.

We've brought back some extremely nasty bugs and other problems from Iraq (and probably Afghanistan) and other places, too.
They could be germ warfare bugs, or they could be natural.
A once relatively benign bug has become a highly lethal pathogen, known to U.S. soldiers as Iraqibacter, and to medical science as Acinetobacter baumannii. It is SO drug resistant, that our best "gorilla-cillin" (imipenem) barely even phases it. This is not a good thing. We are basically screwed. Again. And have brought it on ourselves. Although, as usual, a certain group is dragging the rest of us down with them.
Someone posted some TV News footage of the Flight 93 crash and claims it is rare. I don't know if that is true, or not. Here is what they said and a link to Live Leak in case it is true.
Ultra-rare news footage from the crash site of United Flight 93 which has never been seen again since 9/11
Why isn't something being done about this?
People need to get fired and put in jail.

The following article (same title as above) shows what has happened and is happening to the so-called "free press". Some of it is SOP, some of it is "yellow journalism", some of it is extreme party hackism, and some of it, perhaps most of it these days, is "corporate media".
We've never lived in the America we've always lived in — except in the ideal, which was always the point. You seek the ideal, and then fall short as reality sets in. But that does not mean you stop seeking the ideal.
How the New York Times Won 2004 for Bush

21/05/08 "ICH" -- -- Should the news media be patriotic? When a journalist uncovers a government secret, which comes first–national security or the public’s right to know?
In the United States, reporters consider themselves Americans first, journalists second. That means consulting the government before going public with a state secret. “When I was at ABC,” James Bamford told Time in 2006, “we always checked with the Administration in power when we thought we had something of concern, and there was usually some way to work it out.”
In the TV series, "Cities of the Underworld", episode "Washington, D.C.: Seat of Power", 2008, at about 8 minutes into the show, the host mentions, "In the moments after 9/11, Vice President Cheney was literally picked up by Secret Service agents, and carried under the White House through a long tunnel to another top secret bunker."
He doesn't state where he got that information. Since it is somewhat well-known and accepted that that action would probably be the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) in such a situation, the host / writers could be voicing what one would assume. Or perhaps they were actually told that by someone.
I had never heard that story told before by anyone, although I assumed that that is what had occurred with Cheney.
And then we have the person being interviewed by Alex Jones who says that some female Cabinet Member told him that when the second plane hit the second tower, her Secret Service detail "almost literally picked her up and carried her to an undisclosed location". (link? I think it has been mentioned and documented on 9/11 Blogger before)
