Where's the Remote Control?


Some writers have claimed that the 9/11 hijacked airplanes were flown by remote control. So far, nothing has convinced me that the airplanes were controlled remotely.

However, as demonstrated below, the technology did in fact exist to control commercial airplanes by remote control as of September 11, 2001:

"Most modern aircraft have some form of autopilot that could be re-programmed to ignore commands from a hijacker and instead take direction from the ground". See also this article, in which the former head of British Airways "suggested . . . that aircraft could be commandeered from the ground and controlled remotely in the event of a hijack."

Sander Hicks Is Running For Governor Of New York!

On Friday, January 13th, media maverick Sander Hicks will take the stage at Vox Pop, his fair-trade, union-shop, coffeehouse, and announce his run for the Governorship of New York State. A member of the Green Party, and a New Yorker since 1991, Hicks will announce his three-point platform, a vision of “Peace, Truth and Sanity.”

As founder of two independent media companies, Hicks vowed to continue his fight against the corporate consolidation of big media, a monopoly that deprives people of the information they need to make sound choices.

Approaching 9/11 - User Submission From Damien Haining

The challenge of 9/11 is to penetrate public consciousness. It's all very well for aficionados to speak about Cleveland Airport, Flight 11 passenger gates and radar blind spots but the challenge is to express the legitimate concerns that arise over 9/11 to a public that has 'swallowed the blue pill' and finds it easier to remain disengaged. We need to give people reasons why they should open their minds to consider the matters of 9/11.

When a disheveled maniac pounces on you in the street and breathlessly asks you "Has Jesus saved you?" you're instinct is to walk. Particularly if you can be ostracized or lose your job just for being seen with them. It's the same with 9/11. It has to be made approachable for people - because they are frightened and don't understand the evidence. And that means 9/11 skeptics have to meet members of the public at their level and lead them to modify those beliefs in a reasonable way rather than beat them about the head with their own judgments.

Controlled Demolition Inc. and the Hudson Department Store

Thanks to Rebel Patriot for sending this in, I can't get the video of the collapse of the J.L. Hudson building to work on my machine, but maybe someone else can get it to work:

In 1998, Controlled Demolition, Inc. brought down through implosion the JL Hudson Department store building in Detroit, MI.

It was a world record blast for CDI, but there was damage to the nearby People Mover rail system, as steel beams were shot out over 50ft onto the tracks. The damage claimed to the insurance of CDI, Inc. was nearly $4 million. Please view the links below, and the images of the demolition damage to the tracks. Compare the damage witnessed at the Hudson Demolition, to the WTC damage of ejected steel columns, view the 9/11 Eyewitness video clip of the ballistic path of the debris from the Twin Towers collapse:

9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made in USA

Author Webster Tarpley presents a multimedia show based on his groundbreaking book -

9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made in USA

When: SUNDAY, JANUARY 15th, 2005 AT 6 PM
Where: St. Mark's Church – Parish House Corner of 10th Street and Second Ave. in Manhattan
Donation: $7

Scholar and historian Webster Griffin Tarpley is best known for "George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography" (1992), which laid bare the workings of America's leading crime family in meticulous and painful detail. (See www.tarpley.net)

Thirteen years later, his new work dismantles the reigning mythology of the September 11th massacre in New York, Washington and Shanksville. After a reality check to establish that no proof for the "official conspiracy theory" of September 11th has ever been provided by the US government, "9/11 Synthetic Terror" argues that international terrorism is overwhelmingly the product of intelligence agencies.

Cut to the Chase or Risk Irrelevance: The Plain and Simple Truth of 9/11

Couldn't agree more. The time for debate is long gone, spread the Truth!!! Follow the link to get all the details for each of the points made...


As a full time activist and researcher, it is obvious, from my perspective, that we as a movement still have serious work to do to inform millions of people. The government, media and so-called progressive organizations have resisted even seriously considering the overwhelming evidence of official lies. We still must find a way to break through the silence--and we cannot fail.

The World Can't Wait - Action Item

On Jan. 31st a group called The World Can't Wait will be holding protests across the country calling for the removal of the 'Bush Regime'. You can find a list of their local events on the 31st here.

One of the best ways to spread the word is to attend these other events that are held by others like 9/11 activists who know it is imperative that the Bush administration be removed, investigated, and tried in a court of law. This event (and prior Iraq war vigils) are primo places to hand out flyers, flyer cars, or hand out DVDs.
