First Week Of Truth Both A Success And A Failure

I'm sorry to say that the first "Week Of Truth" was not successful as far as getting "The Shell Game" on the NYTimes Best Sellers List. We managed to sell roughly 1000 books when the amount needed was between 10k and 12k. At one point on, we managed to get the book to #62 overall, #12 in Literature & Fiction overall, #1 in L&F/War, #4 in L&F/United States, and #5 in L&F/World Literature. I'm not going to make excuses as to why we failed. We tried, we did our best, and we failed.

However, as a result of our action, Richard Greene from Air America's Clout is now going to devote an entire month to having 9/11 debates. As a result of our action, we showed that there are people in this movement that are willing to work together for the greater good. As a result of our action, several people around the country heard 9/11 Truth for the first time because of the different interviews that took place. As a result of our action, we have learned from any mistakes we may have made so as to make the next "Week Of Truth" even better.

In order for people to have their say, a forum has been implemented on the "Week Of Truth" website. If you had problems with how the first "Week Of Truth" was handled, make sure you go to the site, and make your opinion heard. (And offer suggestions for a new initiative! -rep.)

On a personal note, I would like to express a sincere thank you to everyone that did participate. I'm very sorry that the outcome wasn't what we had hoped, but some good DID come from this.

2,973+ people were murdered on 9/11. Those people deserve truth, accountability, and justice for what happened to them, as do their surviving family members, and the rest of this country, and the world. We must not let setbacks deter us from accomplishing this goal. It's too important. Again, thank you, and I look forward to the next "Week Of Truth".


Made a fool of themselves... I can't resist but to point it out.

SLC And Other Disruptives Need To Be Ignored

Responding to their behavior only provides them more incentive to persist and distracts from our objectives.

If they appear, relocate.

If they attack via the web, ignore it.

I don't like...

Being lied about. I do agree with you, however. Just letting off a little steam.

Why isn't Dick Cheney in prison?

I Understand

Just remember, we are probably the only audience they have.

Without us they wouldn't exist.

As for street activists, keep your cool, relocate as needed, record any activty and if neccesary obtain restraining orders.

A restraining order will deter them from "crashing" any future activity.

Obtaining no reactions from us will be very frustrating for them.

They want us to react.

I agree... good can come from caring about SLC. They have taken up their position, nothing, it appears to me, will change their minds, so.......... SCREW SCREW LOOSE CHANGE!!!

The dynamic has changed since I made the WOT 2.0 post, so please go and make your voice heard. WOT is no longer an idea being presented for endorsements and support, it is going to be shaped by users who want to get involved with building the next project.

For next week of truth,

how about a whole lot of people surround the glass-windowed tv news studios in New York with peaceful protests, everyone wears red, white and blue to show we're patriotic, and everybody hold well-designed red, white and blue signs saying:

"Stop Censoring the Truth about 9/11"

that sounds like a good idea

that would scare the daylights out of the execs and make for great youtube. Red, white and blue; july 4? Nationwide on youtube? What media would cover it?

The Top 40

"Surround the Media"

hell- go international, live webcast, all day long, google video and youtube forever

The Top 40




With you in the struggle,

I would LOVE to see a

I would LOVE to see a 'Rolling Rick' type viral of building 7- it could show the collapse on repeat with popups of the key facts all put to fleetwood macs-" sweet little lies."

I would do it myself except I dont know how. Once we have the link to it we could post it everywhere as with rolling rick.

It's Rick Rolled. Get it

It's Rick Rolled. Get it right!


It's also hilarious..

Look at the number of views.. that would be nice for WTC 7
Actually I imagine those videos on Google Video have over 11 million as well.


9/11 Truth Street Sign Week....

I would like to see a national 9/11 Truth Street Sign Week... After all, this is an election year and street signs are prevalent. We are a political force and we're making a political demand.
We need a coordinated effort to put out 10,000+ Street signs all across America in strategic locations: Pick yer favorite slogan:
"Google... 9-11 Truth" and "Google....9-11 Mysteries" should be part of the mix though since they send people to info!

This shows a REAL WORLD presence and can be done by small numbers of activists in cities across the USA. *I have talked to both Gabriel Day and Tom Tvedten of the 911dvdproject about this idea and they seem interested.


Watch the skies!! is coming!!! Truth in the heavens...

-----GUESS WHAT?!!!!@*!

The Byron Nelson this weekend is about to have a fly-over TRUTH banner! Thanks to Joshua, Joe, and others with the North Texans for 911 Truth. (Dallas area)

McGee, You are so right about a campaign of signs. I have read your posts and insistence on this in the past. I support your idea completely.

Us guys who do the field work and hit the streets passing out DVDs and putting up signs know how the repeated message of TRUTH via signs can have an impact. It puts 9/11 Truth all over the place. It is great positioning. It lets people know that truthers are out there. Signs. I have a bunch ready to go for my next blitz around town.

If one does not thoroughly LOOK, the TRUTH is not visible.

Let's never stop trying: It's a "Life of Truth' for our future

When the student is ready the teacher will come.
Everything we do adds up and it will make a difference in the end.
I'm a street action advocate. I've been out on the street a lot and I see how it makes a difference. Let's put our energy into finding creative ways to reach more of the uninformed so we can find more people that are willing to be genuine 9/11 Truthers. People that are willing to make those contributions that further our cause of 9/11 Truth. Take Care Matt

Weeks of Truth

Planned WEEKS OF TRUTH will be coming on Monday... nationwide.

"Welcome to the war."







...Josh is on to something sky high!!

If one does not thoroughly LOOK, the TRUTH is not visible.

Successful week, but let's do better, and better

The week was a success. Grassroots efforts are a success if even a few people get bound more closely and a few more join the peaceful organized effort to get the truth out. Public actions like the Week of Truth are precisely what is needed. Congratulations to the organizers and to all who took part in even small ways. Also, it is a success when distracting detractors and infuriating provokers are met with zero or no inflamed response. Now that is cool behavior.

As to signs: Phrasing of banners is crucial. Everything must be done to maximize the awakening of one hundred million or so (safe estimate, I believe) who are poised to join the movement for 9/11 Truth. From now until November is our window. The message must be clear and bold. Black lettering on a white background generates quick comprehension. Statements of fact carry weight. "9/11 was and inside job" is almost certainly true, but not yet a fact. General statements of truth and justice show weakness. This is the worst possible impression to give. Avoid soft statements. This is not some mamby pamby worn-out liberal movement on everything. This is an historic grassroots effort to attack the vulnerable underbelly of a massive corporate / military / banking monster, so hideous that we recoil in horror and disbelief. But we must not. This is good vs evil. Name the crime. give it the emotion it deserves. Murder of thousands in the USA. Murder of half a million in Iraq. A banner along the lines of "The 9/11 murders must be investigated!" or "Neocon story about 9/11 murders is a towering lie!" is preferable.

Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

My thoughts

Nothing against Alten, but I think the choice of The Shell Game was a mistake. It was hard for a lot of us, during hard economic times, to justify the purchase of two copies of a novel that most of us wouldn't read and wouldn't know what to do with. I wouldn't get into a conversation about 9/11 truth with somebody and then hand them this novel to back up my points. :-)

9/11 Contradictions makes more sense on every level, assuming we want to go this route again. I could buy multiple copies of this, and have them on hand to give out to anyone as a follow-up to conversation. This deals with 9/11 squarely and directly in a non-fiction way, not more peripherally in a fiction way. DRG is a knowledgeable speaker who knows to ask the right questions and give the right answers.

Agreed, bearcat

I have given away more than 20 copies of Dr. Griffin's first book The New Pearl Harbor and gotten plenty of excellent feedback from those I gave it to. I just tell them to read it and pass it on. I plan on doing the same thing with his new book.

We are always better off leading with our strongest evidence and most credible sources.

For the record: I have read The Shell Game.

I hope that you and yours are well.

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.

Steve's book...

Is now listed as #2,875 in Books on We had it down to #62. What's that tell you about our efforts?

Why isn't Dick Cheney in prison?

evaluating week one

This effort bangs up against the same wall that stands in the way of all activist organizations.

Although current use of the Internet has begun the process of breaking down this wall, we need to take it further. People need to be in full control of their organizations. This means they need to be able to decide collectively what those organizations do and how they do it. It is no longer appropriate for the leader activists to set the agenda and make the decisions. When this happens, there will be no more disappointing results when the activist campaign gets under way.

New technology invites us to make decisions democratically in virtual space and time. Nothing henceforth should ever be decided, with respect to what an organization does and how it does it, without providing for the FULL participation of all of the members in the process of decision.

In other words, I am talking about the very same direct democracy that has made the New England Town Meeting the political envy of the world through centuries. New technology invites us to dissolve the practical limits of ordinary space and time that in the past restricted direct democracy to the geographical confines of a small village.

Activist organizations are using the Internet as a communication device. It is as if our brain could only send and receive information from the arms and the legs. But the brain also makes decisions about what the arms and legs must do. THIS is what makes the body a suitable home for the willing soul. All of humanity will develop a collective human soul when it learns to use technology to facilitate decision-making among large groups of people.

Anyone can easily implement this new technology. You may be interested in the way I implemented it in a congressional campaign: .

Or, view it in a larger perspective at Vox Populi Systems: .

Welcome to 911Blogger, Mr. Rosen

Good to have you with us.

When did you begin to question the events of 9/11 and what aspect of it first got your attention?

Seeing video of WTC 7 implode shocked me into action about five years ago.

Are you a member of a local group somewhere?

While I agree that part of the way forward for the movement and humanity will be utilizing technology in revolutionary ways, I think it is important to realize that one of the great strengths of this movement is its diverse grassroots nature. It is a bottom-up alliance of far flung groups that share common goals. While we do need to better co-ordinate our activities, it is not in our strategic interests to unify at this time into any kind of hierarchical structure which can be more easily read, infiltrated and co-opted. There is a certain built in feedback process that keeps us on our path to the truth, a dynamic tension, if you will.

Additionally, since many of those suspected of involvement in the crimes of 9/11 also have significant control over the internet at this time, it would be very unwise for us to create decision making systems that can be turned off at any time without warning. In fact, I encourage everyone in the movement to take the time to create more low tech resources, such as limited phone and address lists to allow for communication should we have our individual or collective internet access impaired.

That said, what I would like to see soon is the creation of some regional forums or an increase in the use of existing web assets to facilitate greater dialogue online.

I will be very interested to look at your technology.

I hope that you and yours are well.

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.
