total membership approaches milestone: 10,000!

Checking today, the count of architects and engineers calling for a new, serious 9/11 investigation is 1197:
"1197 architectural and engineering professionals and 8178 other supporters including A&E students have signed the petition demanding of Congress a truly independent investigation. The petition is open to everyone."
Note that the total membership approaches a significant milestone: 10,000 members!
This calls for an effort to get a few hundred more to sign up -- and then for a big celebration. I am inviting people to sign up on forums that I frequent (including 911blogger).
Perhaps you will be #10,000 ;)

Why the holding at the 1197?

I'm puzzled that the 1197 number of A and E seems to have plateaued at that number. It's been a week or so. I wonder if some operation is going on to prevent more A and E from signing on, like job loss threats to prospective ones. If anyone has any information it would be worth noting, and worth researching as well.

I check the number at least twice a day, as I am sure many of us do. My heart follows this Truth Movement, and soars as our strength in numbers increases.

Thank you ALL that do all you do. My hat goes off to you all.

Dr. Jones, we love you.

Most likely those tasked with verifying credentials

are busy with other things.

It can be a thankless process...

For a few months, I was on the credential verification team for AE911truth. Sometimes things get a little slow; everyone is doing it on a purely voluntary basis and we do have our jobs, etc.


Now it's at 1,201.

Great milestone!

AE911Truth is a juggernaut.

9,096 Facebook fans

Also, there are now 9,096 A/E Facebook fans, many who have not signed the petition. (Up from 6,600 in late March). Check out the top- right of the website: There is a 'Friend us on Facebook' icon now. EDIT: I just went to the A/E facebook page to invite fans to sign the petition, but JF Ranger beat me to it. Man, he's on the ball!

I also requested a Direct Mail Postcard based on the artwork for the banner. If 800 of us mailed out 50 postcards to A/E's in our yellow pages, that would be 40,000 Architects and Engineers receiving eye-catching postcards in the mail, seen by all in the mail chain. Outreach du jour.

McGee! You are a great promoter!

McGee, I got to hand it to you. You know how to promote. Thanks for all you do.


In what amounts to a short period of time Mr. Gage's AE 9/11Truth has managed to attract an extraordinary number of sign-ee's to his petition. Bravo!

What will be even more astonishing, sadly, is how the MSM and all levels of governenment will continue to ignore the Truth Movement (other than demonize it) when AE reaches one million sign-ee's.

10,000 Milestone

Maybe this will receive coverage on Russia Today(RT). I would be surprised, though pleasantly, if it received coverage anywhere else.

Have you noticed Russia Today has become silent on 9/11

after an almost daily release.


After Poland's entire GOV was killed last month, I don't want too much to do with Russia Today.

I understand why people would be excited for someone to broadcast the truth, but let's remember who they are loyal too (themselves)

Heard some rumours about this...

... but I'd like to see some links to actual evidence.

"After Poland's entire GOV was killed last month, I don't want too much to do with Russia Today."

Thanks go to the behind the

Thanks go to the behind the scenes workers. AE would be nothing without them! Thanks people, all of you, past and present.

Excellent comments...

We're in this together.

There appear to be two main WALLS of defense for the "official story" of 9/11.
1. People's extreme reluctance to question a BIG LIE, especially when the lie comes from their government. This "Big Lie principle" was enunciated by Hitler and used by him, and is the basis of "false flag events." This is seen also in the refusal of NIST to even LOOK for residues of explosives in the WTC dust -- and they are getting away with it.
2. The wall of nonsense thrown up around solid evidence by so-called "debunkers". For example, the notion that the red/gray chips are merely flakes of primer paint (suggested by Eagar of MIT and others). This notion ignores the fact that the primer paint contains significant ZINC whereas the red/gray chips contain NO zinc (looking at an inside surface freshly exposed by fracture); it also ignores the fact that the red/gray chips produce iron-rich spheres upon ignition which burning paint does not do. There are many other examples.

With the solid evidence we have published, we are breaking down wall #2... but how to break down wall #1??

I really don't know how to break wall #1

I think the best way of combating it is to act as if it did not exist. We need to be the reasonable ones that look at the evidence and report on it.

A reasonable person would have expected a thorough investigation right from the start. I was appalled that the NIST report(s) were not forensic reports. When we look at the forensics that were done IE: The FEMA report appendix C and the WTC Dust Signature Report Composition and Morphology done by RJ LeeGroup inc. We know that there were temperatures that exceeded what we would expect from hydrocarbon fires.

We also know by reading the RJ LeeGroup report that "As a result of the extreme forces produced by the WTC Event, the chrysotile fiber bundles within the WTC Towers were commonly broken down to thin bundles and fibrils." and "Mineral wool has also been widely reported as a major constituent of WTC Dust. Mineral wool found in Background Buildings typically existed as long fibers as opposed to the short, fractured fibers found in WTC Dust.". These findings indicate the use of explosives.

Your own research has found what looks like the cause of both phenomena. (Both the high temperature and high order damage).

Regarding the chips themselves it is apparent to me that they are the residue of an explosive device. The fact that the metal portion exhibits signs of fracturing is the key. We are looking at the outer casing of an explosive device. The fact that these particles were intermixed with the rest of the dust indicates they were intimately involved with the event. The fact that the unreacted nano thermite remained unreacted indicates that the event that created the chips was explosively fast. The explosion was fast enough to hurl the outer casing away from the center of the explosion before the temperature got hot enough for a reaction to start. Although this seems obvious to me I would really like input from others.

Your explanation, Tony,

is the best I've seen so far, namely:
"The fact that the unreacted nano thermite remained unreacted indicates that the event that created the chips was explosively fast. The explosion was fast enough to hurl the outer casing away from the center of the explosion before the temperature got hot enough for a reaction to start. '

Elemental Aluminum

Then there is the presence of elemental aluminum, not found in nature in its isolated, pure form.

Remember the Fourth Estate?

I used to think that surely some whistleblower with the 9/11 equivilant of Ellsberg's Pentagon Papers in their possesion would surface and eventually blow the lid. When reporters reported and self evident facts were accepted as such, that would have been possible. But with mainstream "news" now so thoroughly declawed, I kind of wonder. Most young people don't even know what used to be meant when we referred to the Press as the Fourth Estate. The maddening thing is that there are plenty of investigative reports published about 9/11, as Prof Jones knows as well as anyone, but their signals get lost in the Great Noise.
I had great hope that ProPublica would rise to their stated mission--Journalism in the Public Interest--and do some serious reporting on the Big Lie of 9/11, and I've emailed their entire staff more than once wondering what's stopping them, but so far those communiques have been met with profound silence. They did do some decent Anthrax reporting recently, so maybe they're testing the waters. One can only hope. Their entire staff is listed, perhaps a hundred or two thoughtful evidentiary emails could open a fissure in the WALL?.
Where are the Woodwards and Bernsteins of this generation?
When I went to journalism school, we all pined for a story as deep and significant as the 9/11 Coverup. I really can't believe what used to be our press got so thoroughly co- opted. Joseph Goebbels would be seriously impressed at the scope and compliance of the current GLOBAL Propoganda Machine.

SCAD reaction

One can only conclude that there are profound psychological issues going on, as explained here:

Breaking Down Wall #1

One solution seems to be a steady dose of counter-propaganda - the kind diseminated successfully by activists during the past decade.

Ordinary, continuous, wide-scale activism. Word-of-mouth, freeway blogging, DVD distribution, e-mails.

The public imagination has been shaped into remaining within "the box". Understanding false propaganda requires out-of-the-box thinking.

Certainly we must continue our word-of-mouth contacting

and activism... I agree with the comments about the difficulty in getting through via mainstream media. OTOH, there do seem to be breaks in the dike in Europe and Asia...

Jesse Ventura has also made a dent in Wall #1, I believe.

The "Book Trade" might be one media venue against Wall #1

You mentioned Ventura. He got a lot of play in the Press when promoting his books.
The "Book Trade" might be one media venue against Wall #1, because often authors or books have a venue of promotion with bookstores and some media.

I am just brainstorming outloud... Perhaps, a multi-authored book (Griffin, Gage, Scientists, etc.) with many photographs and a DVD could be a viable method of denting Wall #1. Some aspects of the book could appeal to the layman and other aspects could appeal to the more intellectually minded. The "book trade" might be a financially viable route to make a dent.

Wall #1 and the MSM

Though I don't endorse his suggested solutions to the problem, Albert Einstein penned some insightful words in his essay "Why Socialism?:

Private capital tends to become concentrated in few hands, partly because of competition among the capitalists, and partly because technological development and the increasing division of labor encourage the formation of larger units of production at the expense of smaller ones. The result of these developments is an oligarchy of private capital the enormous power of which cannot be effectively checked even by a democratically organized political society. This is true since the members of legislative bodies are selected by political parties, largely financed or otherwise influenced by private capitalists who, for all practical purposes, separate the electorate from the legislature. The consequence is that the representatives of the people do not in fact sufficiently protect the interests of the underprivileged sections of the population. Moreover, under existing conditions, private capitalists inevitably control, directly or indirectly, the main sources of information (press, radio, education). It is thus extremely difficult, and indeed in most cases quite impossible, for the individual citizen to come to objective conclusions and to make intelligent use of his political rights.

To my mind, the BIG LIE problem and the MSM's failure to adequately cover the 9/11 Truth Movement are integrally related issues. Most people in our society believe that if the 9/11 Truth Movement had any legitimate merit, it would be thoroughly exposed in the MSM. There are many facets to this predicament. Why is the MSM almost completely silent? Why do people so blindly trust the MSM? How do we reach people without the MSM playing their appropriate role? How do we restore the MSM to a state of integrity?

How do we restore integrity to MSM?

I don't think it's possible... the solution to the current corrupt MSM is the web, where sites like 911blogger are taking up the role of gathering, analyzing and disseminating the information MSM wants to censor.


And look how crucial it is that our web access stay open, and neutral. The big money will surely do anything it can to close that access up, restrict it variously, and monetize/trivialize it however possible.

I do suppose this battle will keep coming up, in ever-morphing forms.

Let's learn a lesson from the 30 Years War

The Gutenberg Press is often hailed as a great liberating force in history. Those who have studied the relevant history know that it ushered in one of the bloodiest periods in German history.

We are again at such a turning point in history. The advent of broadcast media was, in many ways, a boon to the power elite. It enabled them an accelerated means to pour their mental sewage directly into the minds of millions; offering very little in the way of alternative channels. Its power is still formidable, but the Internet does offer a significant alternative.

At the same time it comes with new risks to freedom and opportunities for the power elite. For example, Google is nothing but an intelligence operation. The question is only how the information is being or will be used. approaches TWENTY THOUSAND

I checked today -- has signed up 2099 architects & engineers, and 17,746 other supporters for a total of 19,845.

Just 155 more needed to reach TWENTY thousand -- a truly outstanding achievement.

Congratulations to Richard Gage and all the volunteers and signees at AE911Truth. My heartfelt appreciation to you all.
