Truth Movement Make Or Break?

911 blogger is nearly my browser's Home Page. Only for practical reasons have I not made it so (I do have other interests, and like to be able to navigate to these from the Home Page).
That said, 911 blogger is a firm favourite. I visit the Site every day, and it is often the first Site I look at when turning on my computer. As is clear from the hits to the Site, interest in 911 is enormous. Like many who browse the Internet trawling for 911 news and media, I am now firmly convinced that there are many unanswered questions (that to put it mildly). I therefore am not in need of any further "proof", and come here to see where we go from here.
That however maybe the deciding factor, whether the 911 Truth Movement live or die. Fine, now we number millions by all accounts. Yet the questions that have been posed, and the finger of suspicion that has now been pointed at the US administration, need following up. Let me be generous to Mr Bush and Cheney: if one can put oneself in their boots, and they were not implicated in anyway despite what has been suggested, it would still be in their interest to make damnd certain that there were a new independent enquiry. If it were me (and I had not been involved) I should be so indignant about what people were suggesting that I would want to clear my name!
If we now have the situation where millions of people believe that there were official involvement - and it does not really matter whether that be LIHOP or MIHOP - then the big question is what now? What are we going to do about this?
If the answer to that is "nothing", then I fear that the 911 Truth Movement will as one of today's blog entries suggested, begin to die out. Even were it ultimately proven and one day written about that the US Administration were guilty of wrong doing, that will be only one black mark of many that both they and many others have made in the sordid annals of history.
So what now? Where do we go from here?

Two Years Left

It is interesting to note, I think, that only a small minority of the population (~35%) is all that is needed for reactionary politics to prosper (witness the neocon reign of terror), but that for something progressive like 9/11 Truth it probably requires a substantial majority of 70-80%.

Why is this? The media. Look at the lunacy the corporate media have allowed to happen: invasions based on false pretenses, legalization of torture, suspension of habeas corpus, massive looting of the public purse (where IS that 2.6 trillion?), and so on. These policies have progressed without majority support, and the support they have received has been fueled by mass media lies and complicity.

So, Christopher, your question is, Where do we go from here? I would say unless one of the following happens in the next two years, "where" we go is straight into the footnotes of history:

(1) some crime related to the 9/11 coverup is revealed (real estate scam, money laundering, insider trading, etc.), and this in turn leads to a full investigation of 9/11

(2) some other scandal incenses the public so much they are driven to demand a 9/11 inquiry (less likely now that Bush Co. has less ability to act out their crazy fantasies)

(3) mass protests (not likely, given that real support -- I mean, hardcore support, not just people with a few questions -- for 9/11 Truth is still below 50%)

(4) a second 9/11-type attack

This may sound crazy, but isn't it possible that another 9/11-type attack would drive people to reconsider 9/11? I realize the more likely response would be a hasty welcome of martial law; but who knows?

Once Bush leaves office, the face of NWO involvement in 9/11 will be gone, and sadly I think that means the 9/11 Truth movement will die too. Most people need to focus their rage on an individual like Bush, even though his role in 9/11 was minimal or non-existent.

9/11 Truth advocates now have to decide how much they really believe in what they are saying. Bush isn't going to win this war for you, like he did for the Democrats.

Freedom of Speech

Something in the form of progress needs to happen with this Democratic Majority or the Republicans are going to cruise into the 2008 Presidential seat. They must make noted strides in this "War on Terror" so to speak. Our government needs a reality check and we have to be the reality.

I was just listening to Rush Limbaugh and a caller called in all concerned that this Democratic Majority as going to try and silence radio talk shows like his...... Rush stuttered more than I have ever heard him... he didn't know how to approach the question... he was stuttering because he was going to say something and he stopped himself in an attempt to say what he wanted to say in the most round about and gentle way.... and this is what came out.

"I don't think they will get that done.... but if the Republicans win the Presidency in '08... they might take a stab at it."


Did he just infer that the Republicans if elected into office would attempt to go after FREEDOM OF SPEECH??!!

it amkes me wonder exactly what he wanted to say to that caller.... what was he skirting?

He actually gave what he said some thought and then released this bombshell!!... I thought this caller was laughable but Rush welcomed him with open arms??

I am in awe... of this insanity.

Good Step

LINCOLN, Neb. -- George McGovern, the former senator and Democratic
presidential candidate, said Thursday that he will meet with more than
60 members of Congress next week to recommend a strategy to remove U.S.
troops from Iraq by June.

If Democrats don't take steps to end the war in Iraq soon, they won't be
in power very long, McGovern told reporters before a speech at the
University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

"I think the Democratic leadership is wise enough to know that if
they're going to follow the message that election sent, they're going to
have to take steps to bring the war to a conclusion," he said.

McGovern will present his recommendations before the Congressional
Progressive Caucus, a 62-member group led by Reps. Lynn Woolsey and
Barbara Lee.

"The best way to reduce this insurgency is to get the American forces
out of there," McGovern said. "That's what's driving this insurgency."

McGovern told the audience Thursday that the Iraq and Vietnam wars were
equally "foolish enterprises" and that the current threat of terrorism
developed because - not before - the United States went into Iraq.

McGovern's plan - as written in his new book, "Out of Iraq: A Practical
Plan for Withdrawal Now" - also calls for the United States to remove
hired mercenaries from the region, push for the removal of British
troops and establish a temporary transitional force, similar to police,
made up of Muslims from the region.

"I've talked with a lot of senior officers - generals and admirals - in
preparation for this book, that say this war can't be won, that the
problems now are not military problems," McGovern told reporters. "There
isn't going to be any decisive victory in Iraq."

It is vital that Republican and Democratic legislators find common
ground with one another and President Bush, McGovern said.

"Never let the new class of Democrats forget that they're there in
considerable part because of the war the American public has now turned
against," McGovern said. "That's going to have to be something that they
have to explore with Republicans and with the White House."

McGovern, a former South Dakota congressman and senator, was a leading
opponent of the war in Vietnam. He was the Democratic nominee for
president in 1972, losing to Richard Nixon, and was ambassador to the
U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization in Rome from 1998 to 2001.

Excuse Me

I am sorry, but that is not a beginning at all. You have not addressed the central issue. That central issue is 911.

As far as other political issues are concerned, I'll leave that to others. The question I asked related exclusively to the mass murder of some 3000 people!
