Thanks Joe

And I grew up being told that the Russians were our mortal enemies.

Here's Another:

9/11 is on the ballot this spring in 12 towns in New Hampshire. People throughout the region are encouraging their neighbors to "vote for answers." They want the federal government to launch a new inquiry into what happened on that day now nearly 9 years ago.

Empire State

It's fantastic that Russia Today is covering the ballot initiative and the man they interview, Gerhard is committed and eloquent. A correction is in order about the reason for calling New York the Empire State. The real origin lies with Washington.

"In addition to the Hudson, which flows south for 315 miles from the Adirondacks past Albany, New York City, and into the ocean, New York's vast network of waterways includes the Mohawk River, which pours into the Hudson from the west, and the St. Lawrence River, which connects the Atlantic ocean from the north to the Great Lakes and to Lake Champlain. Washington was so impressed by these water routes that he called New York 'the seat of empire,' giving it its nickname, the Empire State."

(about Kosciuszko who designed the fortifications at West Point and who
offered to buy the freedom for Jefferson's slaves!!!!)

Respect! Much respect!

Info Wars!

Russia today seems to be ramping up it's coverage of 911 truth. Maybe FOX can retaliate with coverage of the mysterious Moscow apartment bombings blamed on the insurrecting terrorists, I mean freedom fighters , the Chechen Rebels. And then Al Jazeera can throw some light on the 7/7 bombings in London! Oh what a wonderful world this could be.
