What a Difference a Dozen Volunteers Makes! Chicago AIA Convention Activists Net Over 120 More A/E Petition Signers

BUILDING PROFESSIONALS CAUGHT OFF GUARD ON WTC 7
Experience has proven that, when presented with indisputable evidence, the people who design and construct buildings for a living quickly grasp the cause of the third worst structural failure in history.
Of course we're speaking of the 6.5-second demise of the 47-story, steel-framed skyscraper in the World Trade Center known as WTC 7.
But what if, in fact, most building professionals have never even heard about the collapse of this high-rise on 9/11?
This incredible reality — that the majority of our nation's architects and engineers are oblivious to WTC 7—is one of the primary reasons that AE911Truth headed to the Windy City last month for the 2014 National Convention of the American Institute of Architects. It was the fifth time since 2008 that our non-profit organization has attended this annual event, which this year was held at Chicago's McCormick Place on South Lake Shore Drive, the largest convention center in North America. The nearly 800 exhibitors and more than 15,000 architects in attendance had an opportunity to hear AE911Truth sound a wake-up call about the impossible claims of the official story of collapse by fire of the three skyscrapers on 9/11/01.

Bill de Blasio, another NYC Mayor who has an allergy to reality, decency, and an interest in actually investigating the crimes of 9/11/01 on Thursday said,
“From what I’ve heard it’s absolutely ridiculous,”… “And it’s inappropriate, after all the suffering that went on 9/11 and since. It seems to be this is a very insensitive and inappropriate action.”
That “insensitive and inappropriate action” is the ballot initiative spearheaded by the High Rise Safety Initiative, a group of grassroots activists and 9/11 family members like Bob McIlvaine, father of Bobby McIlvaine, have gathered 67, 192 signatures so far from verifiable New York legal residents, that if passed November 4th, it would require the City’s Department of Buildings to investigate the collapse of WTC 7 and any future high-rise collapses.
“I believe the City Council will share our view that this should never be on the ballot,” said that Mayor with Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito nodding in agreement beside him.
As far as I'm concerned, with Thursdays statement the current ”Hizzoner” officially joins the dishonor roll of elected NY City Mayors who choose to deflect genuine inquiry into the impossible physics of the 3 WTC towers destruction. He is on the wrong side of history on an issue that will never go away until properly investigated.
Keyboard Activism : What Does The Council Speaker Have To Say?
9/11 Conspiracy Theory May Finally Be Settled On November Ballot
Out of the cheese plate, onto the ballot. This November, New Yorkers may vote on a referendum that would force further inquiry into the collapse of 7 World Trade Center on 9/11, thanks to a group called NYC Coalition for Accountability Now.
The "High Rise Safety Initiative" petition, which the group says received 67,192 signatures, would fund a DOB investigation of the Building 7 collapse with a 0.9% surcharge on construction permits. Per the City Charter, the City Council could still reject the petition, and require the submission of 15,000 more signatures from registered voters; the group is aiming for 33,000 more to settle the matter, and says it needs $60,000 by July 20th to do so. The petition first came to light in June.

I recently did a two-part interview for Dissident Voice on the subject of my recent documentary, Counter-Intelligence.
The interview covers a wide variety of topics, including the birth of the CIA, the rise of military industrial intelligence complex, black operations, plausible deniability and compartmentalization, mercenary groups, "national security," NSA spying, false flag and pseudo operations, the 911 truth movement, "conspiracy theory," "debunkers," definitions of terrorism, and modern warfare.

Century of Enslavement: The History of The Federal Reserve

What is the Federal Reserve system? How did it come into existence? Is it part of the federal government? How does it create money? Why is the public kept in the dark about these important matters? In this feature-length documentary film, The Corbett Report explores these important questions.
All over the country this Independence Day, 9/11 Truth activists will be handing out a new brochure: "9/11 Truth: Good for America!" at Independence Day parades, picnics, and fireworks displays! We've got a patriotic message to share with our fellow Americans, and we are not shying away from our task this year. Join us in this nationwide public education effort!
The beautifully patriotic brochure comes complete with all positive benefits of the 9/11 Truth message — along with an insert highlighting the key evidence at the World Trade Center.
Activists can download the artwork at no cost and print it locally — either in color or in black-and-white, and either with the insert or without. Local groups can also customize the back section with information on your own 9/11 Truth group!

What in the world is the FBI up to at Guantanamo? Why is it harassing the defense team of the accused 9/11 mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and his alleged accomplices?
The FBI is hip-deep in yet another dubious activity but, this time, even the not-so-adventurous New York Times is kinda-sorta on the trail. The self-proclaimed “paper of record” has produced several articles, albeit confusing ones, on the mysterious doings of our much-vaunted national police force.
What should be made clear is that by connecting a few dots, one can make out a major—even explosive—story hiding just out of plain sight. This story has a lot to do with the larger pattern of FBI misbehavior and points to at least one of the reasons why we never get better, more complete answers about the events of 9/11.
Douglas Valentine’sThe Phoenix Program is vital for understanding the history of terrorism and its role in political warfare. Few other historical accounts provide as much detail on how the U.S. government and the CIA began to use programs for counterterrorism to implement political policy through secretive, coldblooded actions. Understanding such history is critical to making sense of what is happening in our world today.

9/11 conspiracy group could force its way onto ballot
Andrew J. Hawkins
June 25, 2014
For years, 9/11 conspiracy theorists have been marginalized if not utterly ignored, producing blog posts and online films that gain little traction with the general public.
But a small nonprofit dedicated to uncovering the “truth” behind the collapse of the World Trade Center buildings is making a big push to get its issue in front of millions of voters. The group has gathered tens of thousands of petition signatures and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in an effort to force the city to investigate the destruction of 7 World Trade Center during the attack 13 years ago.
The U.S. Supreme Court Is Marching in Lockstep with the Police State
By John W. Whitehead
June 23, 2014
“[I]f the individual is no longer to be sovereign, if the police can pick him up whenever they do not like the cut of his jib, if they can ‘seize’ and ‘search’ him in their discretion, we enter a new regime. The decision to enter it should be made only after a full debate by the people of this country.”—U.S. Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas
The U.S. Supreme Court was intended to be an institution established to intervene and protect the people against the government and its agents when they overstep their bounds. Yet as I point out in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, Americans can no longer rely on the courts to mete out justice. In the police state being erected around us, the police and other government agents can probe, poke, pinch, taser, search, seize, strip and generally manhandle anyone they see fit in almost any circumstance, all with the general blessing of the courts.
Whether it’s police officers breaking through people’s front doors and shooting them dead in their homes or strip searching innocent motorists on the side of the road, these instances of abuse are continually validated by a judicial system that kowtows to virtually every police demand, no matter how unjust, no matter how in opposition to the Constitution.

Congressman Pete Sessions Answers 9/11 Truth Question with Bizarre Question
Congressman Responds to 9/11 Truther by Musing About JFK Conspiracy
Congressman Pete Sessions Quizzed on 9/11 "Conspiracy" by High School Student. Gets a D.
Asked if the government was withholding information about 9/11 because it doesn’t fit with the official narrative, Republican Rep. Pete Sessions replied with a question about who shot President John F. Kennedy.
“Do you think that Oswald was the only person to shoot Jack Kennedy, our president?” Sessions said in response to a student in a Berkner High School AP government class in December 2013.
Richard Clarke, the former counterterrorism official, has recently come out suggesting that George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and Donald Rumsfeld should be brought up on war crimes. Unfortunately, media outlets reporting this story have failed to examine Clarke’s long relationship to Cheney and Rumsfeld and his record of having prevented the capture of Osama bin Laden. These omissions highlight that, although Cheney and Rumsfeld undoubtedly are guilty of post-9/11 war crimes, suspicions that they helped create the pretext for those crimes go unreported.
Clarke’s history is regularly misrepresented in the media. It’s often said that he started in his counterterror position under Clinton when he was, in fact, appointed to it by George H.W. Bush in 1992. Clarke is a right wing hawk who had close ties to Cheney and Rumsfeld going back at least another decade with his selection for a secret Reagan Administration project. Clarke, Cheney and Rumsfeld were among a small group that spent nearly 30 years practicing to takeover the United States government in the Continuity of Government (COG) program. Their secretive COG plan was implemented only once—on the morning of 9/11.
Considering the media’s treatment of Clarke, it’s no surprise that most people have little or no understanding of his relationship to Cheney and Rumsfeld. It’s also not surprising that some people don’t know why these men are primary 9/11 suspects, despite the many reasons to consider that Cheney and Rumsfeld were behind the attacks. Apart from the lack of critical reporting, much of the evidence against Cheney and Rumsfeld is circumstantial. But the amount of evidence linking them to the crimes is far greater than that used to accuse Khalid Sheik Mohammed and Osama bin Laden.
