In Defense of the Billiard Ball Example (BBE)

On Billiard Balls and Buildings

...With respect to the simplicity of the BBE, we need to understand what it’s designed to address. The Official Conspiracy Theory (OCT), as it was originally concocted, made the claim that the WTC towers were brought down by ‘pancaking’ -- i.e., one floor falling on another in a domino effect -- in 10 seconds. (BTW -- the promoters of the OCT (OCTers) seem to have decided they don’t like the term ‘pancaking’ anymore; so they’ve started using the more mumbo-jumbo phrase, ‘progressive collapse’. But if the only force you have to work with in your explanation is gravity, this amounts to the same thing.)

Can You Call in This Morning?

This sent in from lonelantern.org,

Chad Siewert has a sign outside his house that reads "911 was an INSIDE JOB." It is located on a busy road and is lit up at night. His Army uniform sits next to it.

This has gotten airtime on the local news twice. (Richmond, Virginia) http://www.wric.com/Global/story.asp?S=5187520

On Monday July 24th, Chad discussed his sign on a local radio program WRVA 1140AM at 5:20 pm

After talking about Dr Morgan Reynolds, Major General Stubblebine, and Lt Col Robert Bowman questioning what really happened on 911 and talking about the evidence to support their dobts, I was let go. The show then went into attack mode as could be expected.

Open Thread

Last week I had mentioned a new advertising medium we might be trying out. Unfortunately we were a bit misinformed on the numbers and so it didn't pan out. So, for now we will go back to running blogads, and with the upcoming LA panel on CSPAN this Saturday what better time to chip in a few bucks?

If we can reach $950 quickly we can get an ad on rawstory.com for the CSPAN showing in time for it to be seen by a couple hundred thousand visitors. Right now we are getting about 5,000 unique hits a day, so if everyone chips in it shouldn't be a problem, and I'll kick in the last $100 myself if we get close.

New York Daily News Calls on Mayor Bloomberg to Take Action on 9/11 Environmental Crisis

Abandoned heroes - Mayor must face WTC health crisis

They rallied for New York and America in the terrible hours after the World Trade Center collapsed - and ever since, thousands have paid with their health. Some have given their lives.

Forty-thousand-strong, they labored at Ground Zero under miserable conditions in a time of crisis, working 10 and 12 hours a day to search for the lost, extinguish underground fires and haul off 2 million tons of rubble. As a direct result, well over 12,000 are sick today, having suffered lasting damage to their respiratory systems.

New Firefighter Interview

Dylan Avery, maker of Loose Change, just did this firefighter interview. The firefighter liked Loose Change, and calls for a new 9/11 investigation.

dz: he also notes that Immortal Technique will be involved with the events for the 5th year anniversary in NYC.

New Book Available by Dr. David Ray Griffin

I just ordered my copy of Griffin's new book today. Given the popularity of his two previous books The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11 and The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions And Distortions I would assume his new book will be a blockbuster as well. This book is written as a call to the Christian community, and may serve as a sincere ice-breaker to members of that faith.

Strange Times at the Pentagon

I wrote this article in the hopes that additional witnesses will come forward to either verify or refute this line of inquiry. Does something smell fishy to you? Or is this much ado about nothing?

Navy Historian Barbara Honegger says that there are multiple lines of evidence showing that an explosion occurred at the Pentagon on 9/11 at 9:32 a.m.. The official story says that Flight 77 did not hit the building until at least 9:37 a.m.

For example, in an interview for the new version of Loose Change (7:00 into the video -- you can pull the scroll bar at the bottom left to the correct time, and it will take you right to the right place), Honegger said:

• Several clocks at the Pentagon stopped at 9:32, a full five minutes before the official time that the Boeing 757 hit the building

• High-level, credible witnesses place the incident time at 9:32

• A Pentagon worker said that he witnessed a bomb squad at a subway station near the Pentagon prior to the attack on the morning of 9/11, but there were no bomb squads there on previous or subsequent days

I asked Pentagon survivor April Gallop whether she knew when the explosion occurred at the Pentagon. April sent me the following email in response:

"I looked at my watch before I looked at the computer, it was 9:30 am.

Later that night, I looked at my watch it stopped at 9:30am."

New Poll Up on Derango Herald

The Durango Herald

It seems a bit out of place being that there is nothing related to 9/11 on their website currently, but for some reason or another the following poll is at the bottom of their front page:

Was 9/11 a cover-up?

  • yes
  • no

Seems simple enough, maybe they are gauging the response to determine if the issue deserves any focus?
