Building 7 Reporter Byron Pitts: "A number of things don't add up."

Byron Pitts is the CBS reporter who, on 9/11, said: "About an hour ago World Trade Center Building No. 7 collapsed. A 42 [sic] story building, weakened by the devastation that had occurred earlier today... This was the one calamity that was not a surprise."

It is quite interesting that Pitts would have said this given that no steel framed skyscraper had ever collapsed from a fire. Anthony from Ohio, along with members of WeAreChange Chicago, spoke with Pitts at a book signing in a Chicago Borders store, and mentioned Pitts' report about how the building's "collapse" was not a surprise. I started to type an essay here but I just deleted a bunch of text, shall keep this short and just say: watch. :-) But basically, he maintains his allegiance to the OCT (and also the greatness of American Freedom of Press) while letting a few kernels of truth out, particularly about the present day corrupt nature of the media, here and there. He's very friendly and non-defensive, and doesn't get nervous over a bunch of truth activists showing up and raising legit points, which is at least a good thing. I wonder what kinds of things he would say on the subject at a party with no camera rolling.

The Terror Card

Fear is the Key to Obedience

The Terrorism Industrial Complex (TIC)

By Rev. Richard Skaff

January 31, 2010 "Global Research" -- - Webster’s dictionary defines terrorism as the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion. [1].

However, the United States code defined terrorism as “(An) act of terrorism means an activity that (A) involves a violent act or an act dangerous to human life that is a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or any State, or that would be a criminal violation if committed within the jurisdiction of the United States or of any state, and (B) appears to be intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population: (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by assassination or kidnapping.” [2].

Michael Shermer: Rebutting (Again!) the 9/11 Truthers

Presented with 11 questions by world911truth.org, Shermer compares 9/11 skepticism and inquiry to holocaust denial and creationism, only addresses questions related to the WTC destructions, and in doing so, relies on Eager's claim of pancaking (debunked by NIST), and then reposts material from the Implosion World 'debunking', previously debunked by Jim Hoffman: http://911research.wtc7.net/reviews/blanchard/index.html - loose nuke

Rebutting (Again!) the 9/11 Truthers

A group of local politicians, business owners and other residents has banded together in calling for a new investigation into the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center.

The group is asking voters in towns throughout New Hampshire to petition to insert articles on town meeting ballots that would instruct the state’s congressional delegation to pursue a fresh inquiry into the attacks.

So far, the warrant article, dubbed Vote for Answers N.H., will appear on ballots in Exeter, Nelson, Peterborough, Rindge and Swanzey, according to Gerhard Bedding of Keene, a spokesman for the initiative.

Supporters of the initiative must gather the signatures of 25 petitioners or from 2 percent of their town’s registered voters, whichever number is less, to place the article on the ballot.

Petitions are also being passed around in Chesterfield, Dublin, Hanover, Harrisville, Hollis, Richmond and Stoddard, according to Bedding.

The Biggest Lie * The Hague * Howard Zinn

"The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy
is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of
private power to a point where it becomes
stronger than their democratic State itself.
That, in its essence, is fascism —
ownership of government by an individual,
by a group or by any other
controlling private power."

- Franklin D. Roosevelt

Debunking Conspiracy Theories In 'Voodoo Histories'

Debunking Conspiracy Theories In 'Voodoo Histories'

When a co-worker told him that he believed Neil Armstrong's 1969 moon walk actually took place on a Hollywood soundstage, journalist David Aaronovitch was appalled. Aaronovitch had seen the moon landing on TV when he was a kid, and he couldn't believe anyone would think it was a hoax.

"He told me about the photographs that don't make sense, and the stars that aren't there, and the flag flapping in the nonexistent breeze, and so on," Aaronovitch tells Guy Raz.

At the time, Aaronovitch wasn't prepared with evidence to counter his co-worker's claim, but today he is. Aaronovitch spent six years looking into the details behind top conspiracy theories such as the faked Apollo moon landing and has come out with a new book to forensically debunk each of them.

Stop Shooting Conspiracy Theory Messengers

In the days of old, the king would kill someone who told him something he did not want to hear. But few people today would even contemplate that.

And bad news is all around us. We have wars that have dragged on for years, we have an economy that is sputtering at best and we are constantly reminded that many of our leaders have moral shortcomings.

No one shoots the messenger over anything like this.

But when the subject concerns facts about government involvement in criminal activities, the reaction of much of the public and the media is perhaps even worse: the messenger gets ridiculed.

Recently, Stephen Colbert of the Colbert Nation brought 9/11 Commission member John Farmer on his show to discuss his new book. Right away, Colbert asked in a facetious tone whether there are any conspiracy theories in the book, like "Dick Cheney as a flight attendant." Predictably, Farmer assured Colbert that there were no such theories.

Jesse Ventura Takes the Soaring Interest in Conspiracy Theory to TV -- And Viewers Are Flocking to It
Bringing formerly taboo issues to TV, the former Minnesota governor and professional wrestler's show has caught on. Conspiracy theorists probably aren't surprised.
January 30, 2010 |

Jesse Ventura has worn many hats over his lifetime. In addition to being a body-slamming professional wrestler and one-term governor of Minnesota, he was a Navy SEAL in Vietnam and a bodyguard for the Rolling Stones. In his latest career move, he is a conspiracy theory investigator.
