9/11 Truth Tuesdays “Special Night” Speech - 1/29/2008

Thank you all for coming. I have a few words before we end tonight's panel.

First, I would like to thank the Freehouse restaurant for making their establishment available for tonight, and for their gracious hospitality.

Second, I would like to thank everyone that's helped to promote tonight's event, 9/11 Truth Tuesdays, and especially everyone that is in attendance.

For too long, this movement has been brushed aside by the mainstream media, and by others using labels such as, "Conspiracy Theorists", "Nuts", "Wackos", "Loons", and recently, "Terrorist and/or Terrorist Sympathizers". We have been portrayed as a movement concerned about two things. Whether or not the World Trade Center was brought down by "Controlled Demolition", and whether or not a missile struck the Pentagon. Those who do not give the best representation of what this movement stands for have been splashed across the Television sets of America in a vain attempt to shape how people perceive us.

All of these things represent dishonest, abhorrent behavior. By the mainstream media, and by others. However, their most egregious wrongdoing is that they have almost ignored completely the ones who most deserve answers for what happened on that fateful day. Since the "official story" was released, almost every action, letter, and petition put forward by the 9/11 families has been virtually ignored by the media. This is not right. There is something very wrong with this.

Sure, there have been mentions, but imagine ANY of the following getting the coverage of say...

Anna Nicole Smith, or Scott Peterson, or Michael Jackson, or... dare I say... Britney Spears...

On August 4th, 2006, 9/11 family members Lorie Van Auken, Patty Casazza, Mindy Kleinberg, and Monica Gabrielle released a statement that questioned the "entire veracity" of the 9/11 Commission's report.

On September 5th, 2006, a documentary endorsed by the families that fought for the creation of the 9/11 Commission, and that calls into question the entire 9/11 Report was released entitled, "9/11: Press For Truth."

On September 11th, 2006, at the National Press Club in Washington D.C., family members Donna Marsh O'Connor, Michelle Little, and Christina Kminek asked for, "a new investigation into the events of September 11th, and this time, a truly bipartisan, global, with families invested from the beginning, middle, and throughout the end."

On October 14th, 2006, Monica Gabrielle, Lorie Van Auken, Mindy Kleinberg, and Patty Casazza released a petition that calls for, "the immediate declassification and release of all transcripts and documents relating to the July 10, 2001 meeting that took place between former CIA Director George Tenet and then National Security Advisor, Condoleezza Rice" as well as "the declassification and release of both the redacted 28 pages of the Joint Inquiry Into The Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001 (JICI) and the CIA Inspector General’s report, "CIA Accountability With Respect To The 9/11 Attacks".

On April 11th, 2007, Bill Doyle, Bob McIlvaine, along with Prof. Steven Jones, and Richard Gage, "filed a petition with the National Institute of Standards and Technology seeking correction of inaccurate factual statements and analysis in NIST's reports on the destruction of the Twin Towers."

On November 3rd, 2007, 9/11 Family member, and "Jersey Girl" Patty Casazza told an auditorium room full of people that whistle-blowers the 9/11 Commission promised to speak to, did not, and that the information they have may indicate that elements of this Government knew the day, the type of attacks, and the targets.

If any of these efforts on behalf of the families were covered by the mainstream media as they should have been, none of us would be here tonight. Betsy and myself wouldn't have to work to get this information out. The 1000's of people who actively participate in this movement wouldn't have to do what they do to get this information out. It is a travesty, and an injustice. People need to know what's going on so they can do what they need to do to make sure those responsible for the atrocities on that day, are held to account. There is too much at stake not to. To moo many wrongs are taking place right now because of how that day has been presented to us. It has to stop, and the truth can do that.

The 9/11 First Responders are another story entirely. They have been treated like shit. The heroes of that day have been left to suffer in most cases, and left to die in others. There are people sitting in the White House, the Environmental Protection Agency, the New York Mayor's office, and the New York Medical Examiners office who, at the very least, deserve prison sentences for what they've done to our heroes. That is one of the reasons we are here tonight. To help raise money for an organization I know elps 9/11 First Responders that need it. The FealGood Foundation. Along with seeking the truth about what happened on that day, the 9/11 Truth Movement has made a conscious effort to help those who suffer from the environmental impact of that day. We have literally raised thousands of dollars for the FealGood Foundation alone, and I know that in 2007 they made 144 different donations to 9/11 First Responders.

I first heard of John Feal after I was dared by a "debunker" to put my money where my mouth is, and raise money for the first responders. For the first time ever, I was in agreement with a "debunker". So, I contacted a friend, and he told me about the FealGood Foundation. I contacted John, and told him that I was going to hold a fund-raiser for him. John told me that he'd been reading my articles, and liked what I was doing. That was very cool. Ever since then, we have been able to talk to one another as if we'd known each other all our lives. I am very grateful to be able to say that John Feal is my friend.

Say what you will about Loose Change, and Loose Change 2nd Edition. Those two movies have managed to bring a lot of people into this movement. Almost every time I talk to someone about 9/11, one of the very first questions they ask me is, "Have you seen Loose Change?" Yes, there may be some things wrong in those movies, or what they have presented as answers to the unanswered questions in those movies may have been wrong. However, I don't for a second question the integrity of Dylan, Jason, or Corey. I know they have good intentions. Their latest release, "Loose Change Final Cut" was a much more responsible, and mature rendition of the series. For those who don't like Loose Change, and Loose Change 2nd Edition, I have this to say.

The reason people like Dylan, Jason, and Corey tried to answer the unanswered questions in their movies is because those who should answer our questions, REFUSE TO DO SO. Thanks to the three of them for attending tonight.

The first time I met Ray Nowosielski was in Chicago, June 2006. Kyle Hence, the executive producer of 9/11: Press For Truth, brought a brief screening along to show people for the first time. I was standing out in the hallway waiting for it to begin, and there was this short stocky guy with a white shirt, and black tie on. He seemed awfully well dressed for a rowdy anti-corporatist 9/11 Truther. I asked him his name, and he said "Ray". I had corresponded with Ray before, but never saw his picture. I don't know why, but it dawned on me that he might be Ray Nowosielski. I told him my name, and he knew exactly who I was, and he WAS Ray Nowosielski. All I can say about Ray is that he truly did an absolute good when he made 9/11: Press For Truth. It is a movie you can show anyone, and not feel like a "Conspiracy Theorist", and it tells you about 9/11 from the perspective of those who lost the most on that day.

On or around the beginning of October 2004, 4 audio tapes were released. They were a partial release of the 9/11 Omission hearings that took place on September 9th, 2004 in New York City. Chaired by then Former Representative Cynthia McKinney, and people like Dr. Faiz Khan, Paul Thompson, and a man sitting here tonight that I both admire, and respect, Bob McIlvaine. Those recordings was the first time I was exposed to a 9/11 Family member crying. That family member was Bob McIlvaine. Bob will be the first to tell you that when he talks about his son Bobby, he can't help but to cry. I felt such anger from that. I knew from Bob's tears that what I was doing was right, and I had to continue. Ever since then, whenever Bob McIlvaine speaks, I listen. This past November, I got to spend 4 hours in the car with Bob, and it was a very pleasant, and educational experience. Thank you Bob for being here tonight, and for your amazing determination.

On 10/17/2006, I wrote an article entitled, "A Challenge To The Media" that referred to the family members that fought for the creation of the 9/11 Commission, that started the fight for truth, as "the original members of the 9/11 Truth Movement". I could be wrong, but one could consider their efforts, and the work that they did as the "foundation" for this movement. All of their compiled questions for the 9/11 Commission that are available at the 9/11 Family Steering Committee site, at least for me, have been an excellent resource, and guide with regard to my 9/11 Research.

We have been privileged tonight with the presence of two of those family members. Lorie Van Auken, and Mindy Kleinberg. Formally known as the “Jersey Girls”.

The first time I’d heard about Mindy Kleinberg in particular was when I stumbled across her testimony before the 9/11 Commission quite a few years ago. In it, she said what I think is a timeless and important quote. “Is it luck that aberrant stock trades were not monitored? Is it luck when 15 visas are awarded based on incomplete forms? Is it luck when Airline Security screenings allow hijackers to board planes with box cutters and pepper spray? Is it luck when Emergency FAA and NORAD protocols are not followed? Is it luck when a national emergency is not reported to top government officials on a timely basis? To me, luck is something that happens once. When you have this repeated pattern of broken protocols, broken laws, broken communication, one cannot still call it luck. If at some point we don’t look to hold the individuals accountable for not doing their jobs properly then how can we ever expect for terrorists not to get lucky again?” Thank you Mindy for doing what was and is considered wrong by those in power, in order to do what you and all of us know to be right.

About a year and a half ago, on or around my 33rd birthday, a friend of mine gave me the contact information for Lorie Van Auken. I sent an email to her thanking her for everything she’s done, and told her that it was my pleasure to be apart of 9/11: Press For Truth. By the following morning, I had an email in my inbox. It was a response from Lorie. She said, “Thank you so much for your kind words. And thank you for helping us to tell the story - in 9/11 Press for Truth...” I was so excited. Lorie, Mindy, Patty, and Kristen are all heroes to me. At the time, I referred to her response as “an early birthday present”. Since that time, Lorie and I have corresponded several times, and I am grateful to have her experience, and knowledge with regard to the 9/11 attacks in my corner. She, and the rest of the “girls” are, and should be considered “National Treasures”.

Bob, Lorie, and Mindy. I would never presume to say that I could speak for your loved ones, but I know in my heart that this must be true. Bobby, Ken, and Alan would be so damned proud of each of you.

Tonight was advertised as a "Special Night". Thanks to everyone that attended, it most certainly was. On behalf of Betsy and myself, I would like to say a sincere thank you. I would like to personally thank Betsy for everything she's done to make these weeks at the movie theater, and tonight possible. Thank you Betsy. Thank you all. Please do what you can to make sure people know about 9/11 Truth Tuesdays. It will be a big help.

Fantastic activism, Jon

This looks like a great event.

Thank you Jon

Jon, it's great . . . I started writing something else but read more and then realized that it didn't apply. Great work, thanks.

A few questions...

For too long, this movement has been brushed aside by the mainstream media, and by others using labels such as, "Conspiracy Theorists", "Nuts", "Wackos", "Loons", and recently, "Terrorist and/or Terrorist Sympathizers".

Do you deny that?

We have been portrayed as a movement concerned about two things. Whether or not the World Trade Center was brought down by "Controlled Demolition", and whether or not a missile struck the Pentagon.

Do you deny that?

Those who do not give the best representation of what this movement stands for have been splashed across the Television sets of America in a vain attempt to shape how people perceive us.

Do you deny that?

I'm not attacking anyone Victronix. If I'm attacking anyone, it's the media, and our "opposition". The media, for YEARS has portrayed this movement, not as a movement that supports the 9/11 families with questions, not as a movement that supports the first responders that are sick and dying, not as a movement that calls for truth and accountability for the attacks, but as a movement that believes the towers, and building 7 were brought down by controlled demolition, and that a missile struck the Pentagon. They throw in a side of "no planes at the towers", "cartoons", "holograms", "anti-semitism", etc...

The "debunkers", for YEARS now have tried to focus solely on controlled demolition, and a missile hitting the Pentagon. Why do you think Mark Roberts is challenging someone to a debate about WTC7? Why not challenge someone to the question of whether or not the families deserve to know how their loved ones died? Why not challenge someone to the idea that the 9/11 Commission didn't do its' job?

Believe me, I'm not attacking anyone. If you'll watch the videos, there was A LOT of discussion about the towers, and building 7. But, there was also talk about A LOT of other things as well. Because the session was so long, I chose to only read the entries about the other panelists. I'm sorry if what I said offends anyone, but I'm honestly not attacking anyone.

EDIT: Sorry Victronix. I saw what you posted, and posted a reply.

As people have said before, we should use all available evidence

documentary, testimonial, circumstantial, + all the physical evidence to piece together & expose the inside job.

Great work tonight, btw!

Consider mass emailing truth messages. More info here: http://www.911blogger.com/node/13321

Great work, looks like it was a successful event

However I can't imagine that anyone has ever said "don't look at anything else but Controlled Demolition".
The simple fact of the matter is though that the fact that it was 100% IMPOSSIBLE for those towers to have collapsed without the use of explosives is BY FAR the strongest evidence that we have with 100s of police, Firemen etc that saw, heard, felt 3 massive explosions and several smaller ones. You have fallen into the trap set by these lying ass media nut bags,, they have made you shy away from the STRONGEST single piece of evidence we have. Now when you add that in with all the other evidence which is too numerous to even list here then what you get is irrefutable proof that 9/11 was an inside job. There is a reason the idiot "debunkers" have tried fruitlessly to discredit the CD, that is because it is BY FAR the strongest evidence. If you successfully debunk that then the rest just goes away or at best you might get a hand slap on a couple of lower level fascist for alleged "incompetence".

The absolute FACT that those towers were taken down by explosives is the keystone of the whole movement and it can't be denied when it can be proven scientifically.

The debunkers throw in the BS "no plane" & "hologram", the "anti-semitism" angles and drivel only because that is all they got, just sheer desperation to try and discredit the messenger because they know in reality they cant truly debunk the facts about the CD because every time they try they end up sounding like idiots.

I fully agree that ALL the evidence needs to be covered and there is no question that the Media is really the main enemy here, they have without any question covered up this crime and continue to portray anyone in the 9/11 truth movement as crazies. Well there is only one way that is ever going to change and that is an all out attack on the MSM by 10s of Millions of damn angry citizens, until that happens then forget about the US media because there is no way in hell that they are ever going to basically confess and then convict themselves.
They are going to require a boot heel on the throat.

Not only the strongest evidence

but the reason that most people died, and many more were injured.

Good work.

Good work.

A special night it was . . .

A special night it was . . . I would have been happy with 100 people showing up. Instead we had at least 70 for the first show at 5pm, Loose Change Final Cut, and about 140-150 for the 7pm show, 9/11 Press for Truth.

The biggest surprise to me was that 3x more people than I expected ended up packing the Freehouse restaurant upstairs for the 9pm panel which actually began later than that! Incredible to me for a Tuesday school/work night. Maybe the best thing was, aside from our outstanding panelists, including Jon Gold who replaced John Feal who couldn't make it at the last minute, was that the "choir" audience was perhaps only 15% of the crowd. The expensive ads paid off - people from New Jersey and Delaware made the trip. Advertising and marketing is key, obvious as that may be.

A seed was planted last night in the western Philadelphia suburbs, 13 miles from Indepence Hall and the Liberty Bell; movies shown at the "Mad" Anthony Wayne Theater; free speech at the Freehouse, and even a direct descendent of Benjamin Franklin's in our presence . . . : ) It was symbolic, and a success by any measure.

Thanks to all who attended and supported us in this exciting endeavor. A special thanks to Bob, Lorie, Mindy : ), Dylan and Ray, and Paul, Dennis, Brett and Rich . . . thanks for enabling this night to be truly special.


"Upon the whole it was a Glorious day - Our men [and women] are in the Spirits - and I am confident we shall give them a total defeat the next Action; which is at no great distance. "

-- General Mad Anthony Wayne

Thank You

Betsy! And you too Jon. Bravo!


A HUGE thank you to all the Philly 9/11 Truth members who not only showed up to support us, but brought their own DVD's to sell with all proceeds going to the FealGood Foundation. Thanks also for your road crew talents - carrying boxes of info from one place to another, helping set up, video taping, trying to figure out the lighting, etc.

You guys are the best - Nick and Mark and Nick, et. al.

If this is what our next generation is producing, we are in good hands.



Thank you to everyone.

What an encouraging

What an encouraging gathering that was. Thanks for sharing it. Mindy Kleinberg is something else. She sums it up for me like a fork on a tuner. I really would love to see her on a speaking tour. She'd help plenty of people understand a lot of complex issues in a straight talk manner and from the heart, a broken heart which hopefully is healing well. Mrs. Kleinberg and this group, or rotating speakers for truth, would be powerful experiences for people across the country and oversees, as no doubt anyone in that room would agree with. I wondered if anything like that was in the works. On a side note I also wondered why John Gold discouraged politics during the prime time run up to a presidential election, regardless of the illegitimacy of it all. It's all press time, media world gone mad. That strange media landscape is where the sheeple and hatchlings get their daily info. It's where the ideas for the nation are spelled out for the mass on a Technicolor playing field: Election 2008. So far it's been an excellent opportunity for everyday enthusiastic citizens to get in on the mix, move in on pop culture experience and enable truth to seep in. Just look at WeAreChange alone. I agreed with Ray Nowosielski on the fact "you should be prepared to play ball" in politics. Ron Paul is our best shot at securing our freedom of speech which enables all of our efforts - it's the bottom line. Even if he doesn't win, the message of our securing rights and due process gets spread around and ensures we can continue the press for 911 truth. Also, Cynthia McKinney is undeniable an American hero and worthy of being president, as are many others amongst the 300 million of us (though not nearly enough). She certainly is in the race and effecting the DC political discourse and agenda despite her media blackout (even more blackout than Ron Paul), but it's tough to deny the larger effect Ron Paul has had in the midst of the largest grass roots effort in American history. I guess it's called the Patriot Movement. Well, to not step on the grass with Ron Paul is fine and should not be criticized, mostly because John Gold is supporting the absolute second best candidate, Cynthia McKinney, but for him to discourage Ron Paul was shortsighted. That was tough for me to say because at the same time I feel John Gold's is one of the great Americans I have had the fortunate pleasure to actually meet and shake hands with, a great patriot I seriously respect. Finally, John Gold, myself and so many others will be voting for Cynthia McKinney if we don't have the chance to vote for Ron Paul. Anyway, my family and I thank all of you and we support you all the way.

Well Ron Paul

has zero chance of "winning" this S-election has already been stolen.
McCain will "win" because he is clearly a war mongering fascist that wants to keep endless war going and wants to attack Iran so bad he can taste it.
That is what the war profiteers (Media & top 2%) want and that is exactly what they are going to get because they have absolute control of the entire system.

This is not a Democratic Republic anymore.

Clinton will get the nomination because she is the least liked Democrat, has the highest negative poll numbers so the turnout will be low.
This way the S-election will be within 10% or so and can be very easily stolen just like 2004 was, the media is fully in on it and will cover it all up.

So unless we get a full blown revolution going in this country then just accept the fact that McCain is the next president and no doubt that freaking lunatic Huckabee will be VP.

The system is corrupt, the elections are easily defrauded and the media is in on it.

There is only one way to stop that train and I personally don't think enough Americans have the balls & guts anymore to defend this country.

As for candidates Mckinney would be far better than Ron Paul but neither have a chance in hell so its a moot argument.


It's not too often that I hear from a old worlder like your self who still believes that there is a difference between the two political parties. From Clinton to Obama, from Mitt to McCain and Huckabee, they're all working for the same global ruling elite. Ron Paul and Cynthia McKinney are the only two who are not part of the elite's political syndicate. Research Bilderberg to begin with or the CFR and the Trilateral Commission.

actually I totally agree with that

there really is no difference between Clinton, Obama, McCain etc, they are all fascist working for the same 2%.

McKinney is really the ONLY real choice for President.

Posting to Google Video?

Does this still need to be done?

EDIT: I am doing this, I will post the links here when done.

I'm sure...

There are people working on it. Thanks for asking.

Great work y'all!

Powerful and hope inspiring, and a good example of how to do a series of movie nights and build it up. It sets a great example! Thank you.
