W. Virginia Senate Candidate Questions “Foreknowledge” of WTC7 Collapse in Live TV Debate

Constitution Party Candidate Jeff Becker Questions WTC 7 Collapse in US Senate Debate; Calls for New Senate Investigation of 9/11 on Campaign Website

Jeff Becker, running for Senate in West Virginia in the Constitution Party, raised questions about the “foreknowledge” of WTC Building 7′s collapse on September 11th during a live televised debate that was carried nationally on C-SPAN. Indeed, even Becker’s campaign website announces proudly at the very top of his homepage that he “calls for new Senate investigation of 9/11.”

During the October 18 debate for the special election to replace the deceased Sen. Robert Byrd, Jeff Becker responded to a question about the “continued build-up of troops in Afghanistan” by telling the audience that “We need to first take a look at what happened on 9/11. There were actually three buildings that collapsed on September 11th.”

Becker, who noted himself as an engineer, went on to give an extended explanation concerning the impossibility of WTC 7′s collapse, as well as the contradiction between the laws of physics and the government’s official account [links added to suppliment the references to fact in his statement; emphasis in bold also added]:

“Building 7 was two blocks away from the twin towers– and that’s important to consider because it was not rained on by any debris. It was just a 40-story building. And at 5 p.m. on 9/11, Jane Standley, reporter from the BBC was standing right in front, at Ground Zero, and reported that Building 7 had collapsed, when in fact you could see it over her shoulder. And then, 20 minutes later, it did collapse. This is foreknowledge, and it needs to be investigated.”

“Additionally, Larry Silverstein, the owner of World Trade Center 7 Complex, before 9/11 had taken out a multi-billion dollar insurance policy to protect his property against a terrorist attack. And then, in 2002, on a PBS station interview, he said that he gave the order to “pull-it.” Pull-it is a controlled demolition term. More evidence of foreknowledge. And these are facts, you can watch the interview, you can look at the BBC footage. How did the British know 20 minutes ahead of time that this was going to happen? This needs to be investigated, there is a preponderance of anomalies surrounding the events on 9/11. Over 1,000 degree’d-and-licensed Architects and Engineers have looked at the information, and there’s just too much information that doesn’t make sense with the official story. The only way for the official story to make sense is if the laws of physics had changed on that day. And I’m an engineer, and I can tell you that they did not.“

Jeff Becker was mocked by establishment blogs like FireDogLake and Little Green Footballs for these statements, however he was able to communicate a powerful call to attention regarding the Building 7 issue without interruption.

Becker has also been a noted critic of the Federal Reserve, publicly supporting a full audit “to hold this shadowy organization accountable.”

“As your next U.S. Senator, I will fight for passage of Senate Bill S604, the Federal Reserve Sunshine Act, which will require a full audit of the Fed for the first time in its history. I advocate a return to hard money and an end to banker bailouts. It is time to hold this shadowy organization accountable.”

Though he is undoubtedly considered a “long shot” (typically, he is not even mentioned in this CNN poll, and he had to fight for enough signatures to get on the ballot), in West Virginia– where the other Senator is Jay Rockefeller– a candidate for Senate who would speak openly about Constitutional issues, the Federal Reserve and what really happened on 9/11 is a welcome sign of real “change” indeed.

We need more candidates of all stripes to have the courage to speak out on these important issues.

Good for Jeff Becker!

I watched parts of this debate, but missed this.

Here are the websites...

A long-time advocate for 9/11 Truth

As I noted in an earlier thread, Jeff Becker is the one who introduced me to 9/11 Truth in Sept. 2005. Up to then I had been, like many, completely unwilling to even consider the evidence. But I knew him well, and when he recommended a video, knowing him to be a very intelligent and credible person, I felt like I should watch it.

And that was how I first learned of the collapse of WTC7—four years after the fact. When I saw the footage of that building collapsing, that changed everything. I remember well my response: "Uh oh..." because I knew then that there was a problem.

Mr. Becker is a licensed engineer and one of the signatories to Richard Gage's petition.

Mr. Becker spent months, with very little help, gathering the thousands of signatures needed to put his name on the ballot. Third Party candidates, at this point, have little chance of winning election (though there have been notable exceptions.) But there are other ways to make use of one's candidacy—like using it as a platform to inform the general public about 9/11 Truth! I'm glad to see that he's doing just that.


Do you know if Becker has spoken to Joe Manchin about 911 truth?

Just spoke with him . . .

He has never had a chance to talk to Gov. Manchin and had none before or after the debate.

But I think he knows the score—he understands what is most important in taking advantage of his official candidacy. 9/11 Truth is clearly at the top of his list.

Jeff Becker is a quintessential example of the citizen activist. He got tired of the usual routes, like writing letters to the editor (and he's had a few published that were doozies), so he decided to run for office. He spent months working to gather signatures, and even got arrested for petitioning on State park land. (He was eventually acquitted—something about the First Amendment.)

He has no delusions about his prospects for winning election to the U.S. Senate, but he's determined to use his candidacy for maximum benefit to the People.


I give the man credit for bringing up the topic in front of West Virginia on live TV.

I look forward to following his pursuit of Justice with whomever becomes WV Senator.


The cool and factual way he delivers the message impresses me. People can't help but see he knows what he is talking about. Courageous.


......needs more politicians like this. If i lived there he would have my vote.

I just sent

at donation to Jesse Johnson...

Did you watch the debate? Johnson did not say a word about

9/11 Truth.

He said some other cool things as I mentioned on the other thread but he didn't even have the balls to say something like, "I agree with Mr. Becker that a lot of questions remain unanswered"......nothing.

So, donate to whoever you want to. Saying something on a web site nobody will ever visit is one thing. Saying something at a debate a large percentage of the state watches is a whole different kettle of fish.

I did watch

the debate and I appreciate Mr.Becker's contribution..but I think it is more likely Jesse Johnson will connect with the voters ...and maybe have a chance in Hell of getting people to vote for him. Also, he supports Dennis Kucinich.. as do I...

Speaking of Kucinich, I wish he and Ron Paul would support each other in demanding an independent investigation into 9/11. The truth is so obviuos, I am beginning to think they would have to do so under threat of retaliation that could mean a major loss of life on U.S. soil.

Best $20 donation i've made all day.


Welcome to Blogger!

Off Topic But,

If republicans take the house, Ron Paul will be in charge of the house commitee that is in charge of the monitoring of the fed.

And thanks for the welcome!
