The Economic and Social Crisis
The financial meltdown has unleashed a latent and emergent social crisis across the United States.
What is at stake is the fraudulent confiscation of lifelong savings and pension funds, the appropriation of tax revenues to finance the trillion dollar "bank bailouts", which ultimately serve to line the pockets of the richest people in America.
This economic crisis is in large part the result of financial manipulation and outright fraud to the detriment of entire populations, to a renewed wave of corporate bankruptcies, mass unemployment and poverty.
The criminalization of the global financial system, characterized by a "Shadow Banking" network has resulted in the centralization of bank power and an unprecedented concentration of private wealth.

I remember sitting in my living room, six years ago, watching the “Leader of the Free World” announcing that the United States military had just embarked in “shock and awe” against the country of Iraq.
The images made me physically ill, as they had 12 years before when the criminal’s criminal father was bombarding Iraq.
I was also personally sick with fear as my family had “skin in the game,” our son/brother, Casey. On that night, Casey’s life clock starting ticking down: He had exactly one year and 15 days to live from “shocking and awful.”
Is this really "another" problem with the "conspiracy theories?" He's using the same tired talking points used by anti-truthers for years. He actually argues that everyone in the intelligence apparatus would know the whole picture. Also notice the whole "I have personally known people in the alphabet agencies and they're not evil" b.s. He just can't seem to accept that Disney-loving, apple pie eating, baseball watching white Americans of Euro descent could be so evil. Yet he has no trouble imagining that 19 Arabs could pull off such an attack.
I was reading Karen Fish's poll when I realized one of the problems with these theories.
Let me preface this by saying, for those of you who do not know, that I lean rather strongly to the official government explanation of 9/11. I acknowledge some real deficiencies with that explanation, and I do not regard people who believe in the conspiracy theories as dumb or the tinfoil hat set (crazy). I simply view the conspiracy theories as several orders of magnitude worse and more deficient than the official explanation.

Please come to an important meeting, tonight (March 18th), 7:30 PM, at St. Marks Church, which is the historic place on 2nd Ave, between 9th and 10th Streets, NYC. (131 East 10th Street, technically).
I have re-doubled my efforts to help out with the NYC Ballot Initiative. We have a new name for our group: The "Coaltion for Accountability, NOW!"
We already have 32,000 signatures, but we want to get a lot more, by the deadline of June 4. This is a really interesting activist project, because we have already made a lot of progress, and we have a head of steam.
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."

9/11 and the Greenberg Familia

Democratic Underground Demopedia reports in Who Killed John O’Neill that at the time of 9/11, AIG, the world’s largest insurance company, and subsidiaries Marsh McLennan, ACE and Kroll, were run by the Greenberg family. With Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) member Maurice “Hank” Greenberg as the AIG godfather, the Familia’s tentacles curled around the heart of the tragedy.
Hank’s son Jeffrey, a CFR member as well, was chairman of Marsh & McLennan, situated on floors throughout the North Tower of the World Trade Center as well as the top floors of the South Tower. Marsh also had ties to the CIA. Son Evan Greenberg, a CFR member, was CEO of ACE Limited, situated in Tower 7, which also contained AIG subsidiary Kroll, closely related to the CIA, also with an office in Tower 7.
