David Ray Griffin is back!_on The Kevin Barrett Show

Tuesday, April 19th, 9-10 a.m. Pacific (noon-1 pm Eastern) on http://NoLiesRadio.org, archived here..

David Ray Griffin, the Dean of 9/11 Studies, is back in action! Dr. Griffin, whose presence on the 9/11 truth front-lines has been sorely missed during his recuperation from last summer's health problems, returns to touch bases with the movement he has galvanized -- and to explain why we should not accept reports of passenger phone calls as evidence that any airliners were hijacked on 9/11.

(Note: The overall lack of evidence of any hijackings is also discussed in Elias Davidsson's memorandum to the UN Special Rapporteur.)


The radio show is archived here: http://noliesradio.org/archives/32807


Note from Jonathan Mark:

We can project into opinions where we may disagree with one another, or open to the greater significant issues where we most all agree. David Ray Griffin on the whole has been a real blessing for all who care about truth and freedom. Kevin Barrett does excellent work, too. It does my heart good knowing David Ray Griffin is still with us. His contributions has been enormous. Welcome back!



Not News?

This is very good news and important for those concerned for the future of David Ray Griffin. Why has 9/11 Blogger not posted this as a news item?

Welcome back

"...returns to touch bases with the movement he has galvanized -- and to explain why we should not accept reports of passenger phone calls as evidence that any airliners were hijacked on 9/11."

Welcome back.... to voice morphing, research assistant snitchjacketing, kidney failure Bin Laden and missiles and flyovers hitting the Pentagon! @ Kevin Barret's wonderful show of course!

Gosh, why wouldn't this be on the front page?

Mr. Griffin, I am glad you are alive and I wish you a healthy future, but I also wish you would stop inculcating the 9/11 Truth Movement with nonsense and harm it with damaging associations. But, I fear we have all drifted too far apart now for any of us to take each other's advice.

SnowCrash damage

Funny but I could say that, you, SnowCrash constantly "sow nonsense and harm 9/11 Truth Movement".

I don't care if I am banned for speaking the Truth.

I am giving up on 9/11 Blogger mainly because of SnowCrash and his constant domination of threads with repetitive nonsense and disruptive illogical rhetoric.

beyond the snarling comments..

I realize the controversy that posting this radio program would create for some with narrow perceptions here. However I am thankful 911blogger has provided a forum for this intelligent conversation with a significant leader and scholar for the 9/11 truth movement. I believe that with such posts as the Bigger Picture and a perspective on the more significant areas where we most all agree, this should be enough to help us realize the value of both David Ray Griffin and Kevin Barrett to overcome the snarling remarks of a few. Just like on the whole, 911blogger is a special place in support of why most of us are here.. to unite with truth, respect, and integrity.

Snarling remarks

This is what David Ray Griffin's research assistant said about 911blogger, when he thought the microphone wasn't switched on:

Tod Fletcher
[In the background, talking, unaware of the fact that the mic is still open]

So, it’s pretty positive, I think he was good, and I think we hit some good, solid body blows, oh my… I better kill this thing! Ooooh… it’s all been recorded..

Unknown Girl
Oh my G…

Tod Fletcher

[Shuffling… microphone is shut off, recording ends]


This is all right after Erik Larson and me were snitchjacketed by John Parulis which won him an invitation to Tod Fletcher's radio show. And for what? Because Erik Larson dared criticize voice morphing.

Hell, I even stood up for DRG in that thread. And I have in the past. But I'm not too keen on celebrating the rampant idiocy in the 9/11 TM anymore.

It sucks to see Barrett on 911blogger again

I for one

wouldn't encourage anybody to ban you, because I wouldn't want to get in the way while you're shooting yourself in the foot.

Awesome use

of that Clinton quote. I don't want him banned either.


SnowCrash is probably one of the best contributors to this site.

Snowcrash is one of the best

Snowcrash is one of the best on this site. His criticisms are always well founded and legitimate. Support for poor research and discredited figures is NOT his problem.

Why is my supportive

Why is my supportive statement voted down and others are voted up? Why don't you guys like me? I'm an awesome person


Snowcrash has taught most here stacks about logic. Re read some other posts of his. You are way off. Don't give up, just check yourself, then check your favorite 9/11 celebrities.

David Ray Griffin is

David Ray Griffin is deliberately providing disinformation to the movement and to the world. His appearance on the Barrett show should highlight this to rational people. A rule which forbids me from saying this is unfair and counterproductive to the goal of winning for our cause.

WARNING to commenters re accusations, insinuations, insults

vulich, jonathan mark, jules, nmollo, snowcrash; you've all made posts in this thread that include uncivil comments, some of which are on the edge, infringing on or violating the rules.

One got removed, others may, or maybe they should stay visible as a record. In any case, if you want your comments to stay visible, and you don't want your account put in moderation; keep your comments civil.

If anyone who has listened to the interview can provide quotes or a summary, that would definitely constitute "useful information and commentary." If anyone wants to cite facts about DRG, preferably with links, that would be "useful information and commentary."

Opinions about DRG are not "useful information and commentary," though he's a public figure and subject to criticism. Comments about other users here, other than critique of arguments, evidence and actions, cross the line.

Looks like bias to me

"Those making such accusations are serving darker forces.. no matter what "they" may think."

So then, loosenuke I see you deleted my comment that had been significantly voted up. Wondering if you think the comment I was responding to quoted here is appropriate. That I'm serving 'darker forces.' Sounds like Barrie Zwicker and it's a lot worse than the the true things I said about Mark. Perhaps you think honesty and credibility aren't relevant here?

Breaking news

For all you you questionable naysayers prepare to eat crow -- looks like DRG just got an endorsement from a groundbreaking real truther:

From the offices of Citizens Over Nazis in an undisclosed location:

"I can honestly say, that without the contributions of David Ray Griffin, the 9-11 truth movement would not be what it is today.
I am pleased to be able to recommend this important Scholar with enthusiasm."

Jimd3100Stein CON

Author of the Fly Under Theory (which isn't a theory) and discoverer of 9-11 happening on 9-12

Hopefully this will gather us back under the same tent, like a circus.

Congratulations DRG and well done!

I would also add

that people who make such insinuations are guilty of the same error as they accuse DRG of: they take their own unproven speculations and present them as unassailable truths.

Vulich, why not set an example yourself? Why act like the ones you criticize?


... has erred about CIT and should be constructively informed about why other well-known figures, such as Richard Gage, have distanced themselves from it. It took quite a while for Gage to do so. We are all human beings.

I don't share his stance on the Pentagon. Saying that he is deliberately spreading disinformation, though, is over the top. I suggest that you listen to what he actually says in that interview. Yes, I did.

Three things: I'm not accusing

Three things: I'm not accusing him of being an agent, I'm just saying IMO he must be knowingly spreading false information because (again IMO) he is too smart to be ignorant of the poor quality of his recent work and the strange focus on unsupported claims. Why a person would do that I'm not sure, but that is my personal opinion based on the information available to me. Second, I don't take any pleasure in making these criticisms, I am honestly shocked at this appearance on the Barrett show, and to me it pushes things over the line into a new area where criticisms have to get a little tougher. Third, I have found the credible aspects of DRG's work to be very helpful, particularly in the 2003-5 era. But it is a new time and we need a fresh perspective on what we are doing I think.

There we go again

"I'm not accusing him of being an agent, I'm just saying IMO he must be knowingly spreading false information"

You are saying that he is *knowingly spreading false information*, but are not accusing him of being an agent? I'm sorry, but that doesn't cut it for me.

He has erred about CIT in the same way as Gage and some others have. And he has been seriously ill for quite a while, unlike Gage, who has taken back his support of CIT.

I do think that there are problems with the calls issue. I do NOT think one should lead with voice morphing or anything like that. But I do find it strange that someone would not want to talk with his wife, but only with an unknown official, even when offered a chance, or that someone else would only want to talk with his children "later" when offered the chance by his wife in a situation where survival is unlikely. Again, I haven't looked into this in adequate detail, but I think there are questions that one is allowed to ask.

my "toonie" cents from Canada....

Welcome Back David Griffin, In past you encouraged the Canadian 9/11 truth movement from your last tour in Canada to step up to the plate for 9/11 truth. It's doing just that taking flight with positive results so far- We saw in British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario host the informative Dr. Niels Harrit's most successful cross country tour. David Long of truthACTIONottawa along with the aid from Richard Gage have initiated a collection of petitions coast to coast in Canada that included lobbying our federal government one on one to conduct a made in Canada public investigation of 9/11 during our recent federal election. We've collected 293 signatures to that petition in my home town so far. Your well loved and respected here in Canada and hope to see you back in the saddle full time soon ...

Barrett has his fan base in Canada too... a fair, sometimes controversial and well informed interviewer... love him or hate him he's still a warrior for 9/11 truth

Actually, we do great without any "warriors", as a movement of citizens.

Kevin Barrett: "I am not a hardcore nonviolence activist"
First Kevin Barrett said that Fox News employees should be hung.

Then he said that the producers of United 93 should be tried for inciting war crimes.

Now he is expanding his list of those on death row to include just about every journalist in the world, while discussing an e-mail exchange he had with a journalist for Harper’s Magazine:

KB: "My response to that was, you know, I think that anybody who has drawn a paycheck from the major mainstream journalistic outlets in the past should be up on the scaffold for the crimes of high treason and crimes against humanity."

A Response to Kevin Barrett’s Attacks
On Monday August 30, 2010, it came to my attention that I was the target of three hit pieces that had been published in rapid succession. The most prominent of these attacks came from Kevin Barrett, a self-declared 9/11 truth leader with a long history of actions and statements considered by many to be extremely discrediting to the 9/11 truth movement. Under an ugly, libelous headline on his “Truth Jihad” blog, Barrett issued a venomous litany of bizarre accusations against me: I’m probably an agent of the state, perhaps stalking his family, I’m a “wrecker” getting him kicked off conference lineups and – to top it off – there’s evidence that I may actually be living a secret double life as a supporter of the official 9/11 story.

Kevin Barrett promoting disinfo
"How can anyone CONTINUE to support Jim Fetzer after what happened at Scholars for 9/11 Truth, and ever since. As someone else noted, there have been a deluge of (mind-numbing) "tv-fakery" videos coming out. Is it a coincidence that the 9/11 anniversary is around the corner? And now all of a sudden Barrett is promoting this stuff. What a coincidence."

KB: "Jim Fetzer, like David Ray Griffin, may be doing mainly secondary rather than primary research, but that is still research, and both are entitled to speak of "our" research in presenting selected findings of the 9/11 truth movement."

I'm going to make a wild guess Judy; I'm going to presume that these [directed energy] beams had to be located in Building 7?"

Judy Wood: "Nope. I don't think so."

There's much much more recommended reading out there on this topic.

Thank you DRG!

"In this cumbersome if intriguing extended essay, Griffin (The New Pearl Harbor) argues that Osama bin Laden is dead and that the tapes attributed to him are fakes"

See? He was right all along. For a little more than 10 bucks you could get 120 page book explaining how Bin Laden is dead. And now it's official. This guy is a genius!

"One of the film's most valuable parts is a scene in which cab driver Lloyde England, who otherwise gamely tried to maintain the truth of his testimony supporting the official story, admitted that the Pentagon operation had been planned by powerful people with lots of money. I am pleased to be able to recommend this important film with enthusiasm."

When are the authorities going to listen to this genius and bring in this cab driver for questioning?

A missile hit the pentagon!!! Check it out!....


For only $13 you can get the smoking gun evidence!

Thank you DRG for selling us the truth at reasonable prices. And to K Barrett as well for all his fine work..you've got the perps on the run!

Live and in person!

Great news truth fans! You will be able to see in person this amazing truth teller for the very low price of just $15. A great deal to hear how no plane hit the pentagon, UBL has been dead for years, there were no hijackers, the phone calls were fake, Olson is a liar who helped kill his own wife, and hopefully he will get into more detail on just how much of a shady character that sneaky cab driver is.......


I'm sure books will be available as well at great prices, but really,.... is any price to much to get the truth? I think not. Thank you DRG for keeping up the fight for truth and justice!

Jim, We live in a world where


We live in a world where money is representative of energy and time of our own, that we spend doing something for some purpose, that will normally make money for something or someone else, mostly.

So, lets not get too anti-capitalism on 9/11 Blogger.

I enjoy reding thorough analysis on issues, as you have provided in critical contrast to D.R.G. among other topics.

Years ago, D.R.G. donated a good number of books for me to sell at a fundraiser for the Feal Good Found. they were very generous, and happy to be part of a good cause.

The books donated were The New Pearl Harbor, because I'm sure you'll want to know.

A huge fan

"So, lets not get too anti-capitalism on 9/11 Blogger."

Huh? I'm not. There is no price to big to pay for the truth. I just wish he would spend more time talking about that suspicious cab driver. And perhaps spend an entire evenings talk on the fake phone calls-that a killer for the "official story" I know he just wants to spread the truth. This guy is batting 1000 because the only retraction he's ever made he retracted. He's so awesome! And has never been wrong about anything except maybe not charging enough for his books, I hope he isn't starving.

Jim, I hope D.R.G. reponds


I hope D.R.G. reponds with the right words and actions to the right crtitques of his work.

Has he been made aware...

... of these criticisms? He may not be reading this site.

DRG and responding to this thread

It is too murky here for me to want Dr. Griffin to respond to these discussions.. though I did learn that he was delighted to learn that his interview on the Kevin Barrett radio show was posted on 911blogger. In that program he had answered many of his critics.. Note that the complaints on this thread has very little to do with the substance of what he said during this interview. Thanks for all at 911blogger who continue to support, appreciate, and use the incredible good work of a special scholar, who has supported the call for investigating the false flag events of September 11 with integrity and substance.
