A new state law makes Sept. 11 a holiday for firefighters. But some don't know about it and might not be able to skip work that day anyway.

"I'm not aware of one," Ernest Gurule, a spokesman for Dallas Fire-Rescue, said of the statewide holiday commemorating firefighters' sacrifices during the 2001 terrorist attacks.

"I had no idea it had been voted on," said Chris Sweet, treasurer and past president of the Lewisville Firefighters Association.

While the new law hasn't received much publicity, "it's something I wanted to do to honor firefighters," said Rep. Armando Walle, D-Houston, who authored the law that takes effect Sept. 1.

In the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, 343 New York firefighters and paramedics were killed. A total of 60 New York and Port Authority police officers also died.

"Sibel Edmonds Speaks, But No One Is Listening", By Philip Giraldi

Those who are interested in issues like widespread corruption of our elected officals by foreigners have no doubt followed the ex-FBI traslator turned whistle blower Sibel Edmonds saga for the past few years. Sibel has finally testified in court under oath about some of the things that she learned while working for the bureau. The testimony was in a court in Ohio about two weeks ago. A full transcription and a useful summary appear at http://www.bradblog.com/?p=7374. In short, she names a number of Congressmen including former Speaker Dennis Hastert who took money from Turkish lobbyists. She also identifies senior State Department and Pentagon officials who apparently did the same, including our friends Marc Grossman, Paul Wolfowitz, and Doug Feith. Interestingly, she claims that Grossman blew the cover of Valerie Plame’s company Brewster Jennings back in 2001, causing CIA to shut it down, so Robert Novak was not guilty of exposing the CIA cover mechanism. In another interview given a few weeks ago, Edmonds claims that CIA was working closely with al-Qaeda in the Balkans and continued to do so until 9/11.

Mark Davis: Obama proving incapable of terror fight

Mark Davis is heard weekdays from 8:30 to 11 a.m. on WBAP-AM, News/Talk 820. His e-mail address is mdavis@wbap.com.

Indignation is a curious thing in the era of Barack Obama. Having seen the mockery this White House can heap on voters who dare to show it anger, this week has provided a window to what in turn sparks the Obama team to outrage.

The current scorecard:

•Release of one of the world's most notorious terrorists by Scottish authorities – not much indignation.

•Techniques used by the previous administration to get answers from terrorists to keep Americans safe – massive indignation.The evidence mounts that an administration that cannot even bring itself to use the word "terrorist" has shown itself thoroughly unfit to fight them. From the wildly foolish notion of affording Guantánamo detainees access to American courts to the stunning gullibility of its soft stance on Iran, this administration has made it clear to terrorists: there is indeed a new sheriff, and his holster is empty.

Insider Trading Case Dismissed Against Mark Cuban

It was pointed out in the article, that it is rare for a federal judge to dismiss a suit this early in the process. Below are also links of a heated email exchange between Mark Cuban and the Dallas based SEC Attorney, Jeffrey Norris, which had occurred previous to any charges being filed by the SEC against Cuban. Norris accuses Mark Cuban of being un-American by contemplating the distribution of Loose Change Final Cut.

The Muslim Community and The Essence of Freedom

In trying to get our ducks in a row for an upcoming 9/11 Truth event in the Dallas area, our group has invited some other groups to set up table displays. We are not asking that these other groups endorse any particular aspect about 9/11 Truth, only that they stand for peace, justice and transparency in government. I was thrilled to hear that the local Muslim Community would be setting up a display for the day of the event. I found inspiration in an article written by Mike Ghouse which will go out to about 22,000 people.

The Essence of Freedom
Mike Ghouse, Dallas

The essence of freedom is our ability to question; question everything including our belief and what our government dishes out for us to believe.

Cindy Sheehan - March to Bush's Home in Dallas

On Monday, June 8 2009, North Texans for 9/11 Truth joined Cindy Sheehan, Code Pink, The Dallas Peace Center, and other concerned citizens in a march and protest to the home neighborhood of George W Bush in Dallas, Texas. While the sweat poured off the marchers in the late afternoon sun, things also heated up for Bush and his friends.

In this 6 minute video, Cindy Sheehan delivers a powerful speech in front of the street leading to Bush’s home. Some very profound statements are made – points which we all should make note of.

Upcoming Dallas Event – July 11th

This is an informal, pre-announcement to assist in preparation of an all day, July 11th event. The film and speaker symposium is entitled: "WHAT YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO KNOW ABOUT 9/11: Building 7 – Gone in 7".

The North Texans for 9/11 Truth Group is in the process of organizing the Program for this landmark event. As part of the planning, we wanted to broadcast an invitation for possible presentation speakers (such as scientists, researchers, architects, etc.) who would like to be featured during this all day information fair. Our group is working with a pauper's budget, but there might be some alternative financial options which could prove viable for potential speakers. Please contact Dallas911Truth@aol.com if you have an interest in speaking or helping with the event.

Ed Begley, Jr - Reflections of 9/11

Ed Begley, Jr. (actor, environmentalist, activist) will be in Plano, Texas (an affluent Dallas suburb) for a “Live Green Expo” on April 18th. For many Texans, this brings to mind one of Ed’s most dramatic roles. On September 11, 2004 Begley served as host for the NYC event “Confronting the Evidence: A Call to Re-open the 9/11 Investigation”.

In reflecting upon this milestone event, the dynamic introduction to the subject of “9/11 Truth” stands out. This 4 minute video contains an excellent opening statement.

Texas Style Jury Duty

This week I have been called to serve on two different jury duties. One is for the Municipal Court in a Dallas suburb and one is for a nearby County Court.

Today, I walked into the courtroom of the Municipal Court and sat down on one of the long pews facing the bench. There were about 50 of us sitting on pews as potential jurers in the small room waiting for the Judge. Of course, I brought my bag with reading material, 9/11 Truth DVDs, and newspaper-sized broadsheet flyers. (See flyer--> http://www.911blogger.com/node/18142 )

Rooms are strangely silent with so many people waiting. Voices easily carry across the small room. I struck up a conversation with the fellow next to me, John. "Are you in college?" He answered that he wasn't, but had trained as a pilot for a couple years in Arizona and nixed the idea in the year 2000 because he did not want to pursue a military career. I validated him, saying "That was smart!"

Then I handed him a newspaper-sized flyer saying: "You might be interested in this...have you ever heard of Building 7?"
John answered: "You mean World Trade Center Building 7?!...yea...I believe it was controlled demolition."

Nanotechnology: 9/11 and the Future

With the advent of the discoveries surrounding the 9/11/01 nano-thermite evidence, along with what is about to come down the pike, I decided to do a cursory layman study of “nanotechnology”.

One nanometer (nm) is one billionth, or 10-9, of a meter. It takes about 3-10 atoms to span the length of a nanometer. 1 nanometer = 1,000 microns (µm) (micrometers). A red blood cell is 7 microns in diameter. A bacterium might be 200 nanometers in length.

This 10 minute video gives an excellent overview of nanotechnology.

Design of Bldg 7 -- Texas Engineer, Richard Gage, and Alex Jones on the radio.

Texas Engineer calls into the Alex Jones show and discusses with Richard Gage elements of the steel construction of Building 7. Some excellent photos of steel construction are in this short video.

Derek, a mechanical engineer familiar with aspects surrounding steel welds, states: "Engineers have an ethical responsibility to protect public health and safety. If we designed building 7 wrong, shouldn't we get many opinions on where we went wrong...so we don't have more buildings falling at freefall speed from office fire?"

Texas Engineer Gets SAVAGE on 9/11 Truth

These "Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth" are relentless in the effort to reveal the truth about 9/11. Derek, an engineer from Texas, actively engages Michael Savage about 9/11 Truth. Derek encourages us all "to DO SOMETHING", to take an active role in disseminating 9/11 Truth.
