Dr. David Ray Griffin. Nobel Peace Prize Nominee. Dublin Tonight 8pm.

Update: Dr. Griffin has clarified the situation in an email to GW: "A woman in Norway, who is a former member of Parliament, said she was planning to nominate me (for 2008). But it's premature to be talking about it, as it may not come to pass."

Let's hope that it does come to pass.

1) Nobel Peace Prize Nominee.

World Renowned Theologian Dr. David Ray Griffin will be lecturing on the topic of his new book 'Debunking 9/11 Debunking' tonight in Spirit Dublin 8pm. Dr. Griffin has arrived in Dublin from a speaking engagement in Norway where he has been informed by a Nobel member that he and the 9/11 truth movement are to be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in the coming year!

2) Media Appearences Today Sept 11th 2007:

- Dr. Griffin will be appearing on Ireland AM on TV3 at 7.15am Tues Sept 11th.

"Hosted by Mark Cagney and Sinead Desmond, along with Alan Hughes and Aidan Cooney, Ireland AM includes a mixture of lifestyle stories, health, safety, education, entertainment and interviews with Ireland's top personalities."

- Dr. Griffin will be interviewed on The Spin with Clare McKenna and Jonathan McCrea on Spin 103.8FM at 1.30 approx Tues Sept 11th.

"A brand new daily talk show covering everything from news and current affairs to topical features that get people talking. Flipping from hot politics to who's sleeping with who in Hollywood, from what's in the papers to what's hot in the charts, The SPIN has it covered in it's own unique style."

- We are also hoping that Dr. Griffin will be interviewed on one or more national radio stations tomorrow afternoon although naturally RTE will not be one of them.

- World Renowned Theologian Dr. David Ray Griffin Answers critics of the 9/11 Truth Movement. 6th Anniversary Lecture.

"Debunking 9/11 Debunking."
New venue Spirit Dublin, 57 Middle Abbey St.
8pm Tuesday September 11th 2007.
Lecture Admission €20. (Pay at the door).

3) COINTELPRO Redux.

In other news the new venue (Spirit Dublin) informed us Monday that they have been subjected to telephone threats by some individual, ostensibly due to my 'anti-semitism,' and that unless the venue was made unavailable to us that "the name of their venue would be dragged accross the national airwaves on Wedensday via the RTE Joe Duffy Show." The individual did not explain why he was so confident that that particular radio program would take up his 'issue.'

In any event, I would like to take this opportunity to state personally and categorically that I am available to visit the RTE studios on Wedensday with a view to discussing my 'anti-smitism' on the 'national airwaves' and further that I hope that this individuals confidence is well placed.

My telephone number for producers in the Joe Duffy show, and indeed any other media outlets who would like to interview a forthcoming Nobel Peace Prize nominee tomorrow Sept 11th 2007 is:

085 773 6098

This telephone number will self destruct within 24 hours.

Kind Regards,
Morgan Stack.

Kudos to Griffin

His steadfast approach to this investigation and exposing the lies of the "official tehory" has been flawless. A nomination alone is huge. I think the more that 9/11 Truth is linked to peace and an end to war, the more likely it is that 49% of the unconvinced (as per Zogby) will be swayed faster than anyone can imagine. DRG deserves it!!!

Has Griffin's nomination been confirmed? If so...

Can this nomination be confirmed? What exactly was said and by whom? Can Griffin himself confirm or deny?

If it is true, then this will be huge - the MSM will have a real tough time ignoring and /or spinning this.

It's true

I was at the press conferanse in Norway last friday, where Griffin was suggested as a candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize in Kristiansand, Norway, by Berit Ås and Per-Aslak Ertresvåg of the 9/11 Press Conference Group (see http://www.911pk-gruppen.no/Welcome.html).

We have the press conference on tape, but it's still not on YouTube or Google....
Here is some of the press conference. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bt9klLrZkDE (4 parts), but nothing from the nobel peace prize. We have to wait on the secound camera :)

Greetngs to Norway from France

Dr Griffin will be in Paris after Oslo. 13, 14 et 15 septembre 2007.

Here is his message to the Brussels 9/9 gang:

Dear 9/11 Truth Seekers,

I regret that, due to the fact that I'm addressing an audience in
Oslo, I am unable to attend your United for Truth March here
in Brussels. Nevertheless, I wish, by means of this written
statement, to say a few words of encouragement and appreciation for
your efforts.

The attacks in New York and Washington six years ago left the
American people stunned and ready to agree to almost anything the
Bush-Cheney administration proposed. At home, this has meant severe
restrictions on civil liberties in the name of the so-called PATRIOT
Act.

Abroad, we have had a so-called war on terror, which has really been
a war of aggression against Muslims and a war for oil and domination
in Muslim nations. This has meant six years of torture, humiliation,
and the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people in Afghanistan and
Iraq, people who were either innocent civilians or soldiers fighting
against an immoral and even illegal occupation.

During this period, we have also seen an unprecedented media cover-up
in the United States and allied countries. Such cover-ups have
happened before. But in this case, the crime was more enormous, the
consequences were more catastrophic, and the evidence was more
obvious. (For example, just by looking at the collapse of Building 7
of the World Trade Center, anyone who knows anything about these
matters can see that it was brought down by explosives, as Danny
Jowenko of Holland has illustrated.) The failure of the media to
expose the lies of the official story threatens the continued
existence of democracy, which simply cannot function without an
independent media, dedicated to revealing crimes of state.

The truth is, of course, that the War on Terror is bogus. The 9/11
Truth Movement is driven by a desire to find out the truth about what
really happened on 9/11 and who is really behind these attacks. In 6
years, the movement has made a lot of headway. More and more people
are starting to realise that the attacks of 9/11 were an inside job,
orchestrated by the United States government as a pretext to carry
out its pre-established policies.

There have been two very important developments in the 9/11 Truth
Movement during the past year. One has been the emergence of groups
of professionals. We now have not only have Scholars for 9/11 Truth
and Scholars for 9/11 Truth and Justice, which puts out the Journal
of 9/11 Studies. We also have Veterans for 9/11 Truth, Pilots for
9/11 Truth, and, most recently, Architects and Engineers for 9/11
Truth. Moreover, even though there is not yet an organization of
former intelligence professionals, many of them have spoken out.
Three former CIA analysts, for example, have endorsed my books.

The other big development has been the growth of 9/11 activism in
Europe. I have come to believe that if the truth is ever to be
exposed, Europe will probably need to lead the way. Awareness appears
to be spreading far and wide. This United for Truth March---the first
of its kind in Brussels, I understand---is testimony to this growing
awareness.

But we still have a long road ahead of us. Therefore it is important
that you all keep working to force politicians around the globe,
especially the European Parliament in Brussels, to demand a genuine
inquiry into 9/11. A genuine investigation is all that it will take
for the truth to come out, because once people get empirical about
9/11, they quickly see what you have all come to see: that the
evidence that 9/11 was an inside job is obvious.

What is needed is a new and fully independent Commission to uncover
the truth about what really happened during that fateful day six
years ago. This commission should consist of world leaders,
scientists, philosophers, architects, engineers, intelligence
professionals, military experts, and other people with relevant
expertise. And they should take evidence from people who were not
allowed to give testimony to the 9/11 Commission and other bodies who
have issued the official reports in the United States---such as
firefighters, police officers, other first responders, people who
escaped from the towers and the Pentagon, and people near Shanksville
Pennsylvania, where Flight 93 was said to have crashed.

And when finally the truth is revealed, we can learn from it and
start the healing process. We will perhaps need a Truth and
Reconciliation Commission. But first we need to get some truth out
into the open, so as to motivate a more formal discovery process.

Congratulations on your success in organizing this historic march.
May it become known as one of the steps that helped the truth about
9/11---a truth that will do much to overcome the insanity we are now
living through---come out.

Morgan: Don't want to be called an anti-Semite?

The take this piece of crap essay by Capt. Eric May off your site or explain how it is NOT anti-Semitic to blame "Jew Hollywood", "Jewish mainstream media", and "media Jews" as if some sort of Jewish cabal exists.

This kind of rhetoric is plainly not a critique of Zionism, the state of Israel, Mossad, etc., so don't bother trying to hide behind anti-Zionist truthers, because we don't want you.

Must agree with casseia

I must agree with Casseia on the work by Capt. Eric May. Even if true regarding the numerology, which I consider highly unlikely, it adds just about nothing to 9/11 Truth. I would suspect it to be disinformation, what I believe is called "poisoning the well." The business about jews and Hollywood does nothing to enhance our understanding of 9/11, in my view. It leaves David Ray Griffin vulnerable to attack via association, however unfair.

Couldn't happen to a better candidate!

Congratulations Dr. Griffin, you are a scholar, a gentleman, a patriot, a principled man of honor, and we are very proud of you! This acknowledgment is huge for the 911 movement.

Nomination and Selection of the Nobel Peace Laureates

Source: nobelprize.org

The Norwegian Nobel Committee is responsible for the selection of the candidates and the choice of the Nobel Peace Laureates. The Committee is composed of five members appointed by the Storting (Norwegian parliament). The Nobel Peace Prize is awarded in Oslo, Norway, not Stockholm, Sweden, where the Nobel Prizes in Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine, Literature and the Economics Prize are awarded.

Who is eligible for the Prize
The candidates eligible for the Nobel Peace Prize are those nominated by qualified persons who have received an invitation from the Nobel Committee to submit names for consideration. No one can nominate himself or herself.

How are the Nobel Laureates selected?

Below is a brief description of the process involved in selecting the Nobel Peace Prize Laureates.

September – Nomination forms are sent out. The Nobel Committee sends out invitation letters containing confidential forms to individuals qualified to nominate – members of national assemblies, governments, and international courts of law; university chancellors, professors of social science, history, philosophy, law and theology; leaders of peace research institutes and institutes of foreign affairs; Nobel Peace Prize Laureates of previous years; board members of organizations that have received the Nobel Peace Prize; present and past members of the Norwegian Nobel Committee; and former advisers of the Norwegian Nobel Institute.

February – Deadline for submission. The Committee bases its assessment on nominations that must be postmarked no later than 1 February each year. Nominations received after this date are included in the following year's discussions. In recent years, the Committee has received well over 140 different nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize. The numbers of nominating letters are much higher, as many are for the same candidates.

March-May – Short list. The Committee assesses the candidates' work and prepares a short list.

June-August – Adviser review. The 'shortlist' is reviewed by permanent advisers and advisers specially called on for their knowledge of specific candidates. The advisers do not directly evaluate nominations nor give explicit recommendations.

October – Nobel Laureates are chosen. At the beginning of October, the Nobel Committee chooses the Nobel Peace Laureates through a majority vote. The decision is final and without appeal. The names of the Nobel Peace Laureates are then announced.

December – Nobel Laureates receive their prize. The Nobel Peace Prize Award Ceremony takes place on 10 December in Oslo, Norway, where the Nobel Laureates receive their Nobel Prize, which consists of a Nobel Medal and Diploma, and a document confirming the prize amount.

Are the nominations made public?
The statutes of the Nobel Foundation restrict disclosure of information about the nominations, whether publicly or privately, for 50 years. The restriction concerns the nominees and nominators, as well as investigations and opinions related to the award of a prize.


A "Full And Complete Accounting" Of The 9/11 Attacks

Thanks!

Keep us informed! If it turns out to be true, then think about how all of DRG's work will be validated and recognized. I can't imagine what Bush & Co. will do then.

Dr. Griffin is a great man.

And I feel honored to have met him. I truly do hope he gets the nomination and the prize, because I can't think of anyone more deserving.

Don't get your hopes up

Can we get confirmation? This is the second report of this but again not one speck of information of any official capacity.

Either someone is jerking our collective chain or it is indeed good news. But until it is confirmed in an OFFICIAL capacity, don't get your hopes up.


If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way.

Noble Peace Prize

If anyone deserves the Noble Peace Prize DRG deserves it. I can't think of anyone more qualified. It would be quite a boon to the 9/11 truth movement but I am not holding my breath. Back in the sixties Dr. Helen Caldicott was nominated for her work in nuclear disarmament but didn't win the prize.although her group did. She should have won it hands down. Lets hope Griffin fairs better than Dr. Caldicott.

I don't see him listed anywhere

http://peacemaking.suite101.com/article.cfm/nobel_peace_prize_race_hots_up

Of course it would have to be a leak because they are not supposed to be public for 50 years.

Looks as though Al Gore might get it this year. Naturally the Reich wing nut bags will jump down the poor mans throat because he didn't ride a bicycle to go pick it up.

Sadly the only people that will ever hear of Dr Griffins nomination if indeed it is true are just those of us in the 9/11 truth movement, the MSM will not utter a word.
That includes even if Dr Griffin were to win he would be totally shunned by the US MSM.

The MSM will not change until we the people of this country destroy them.

This Nobel idea may have started here

On December 27 of 2006, Somebigguy submitted this idea as a blog entry.

No one can say for sure if his blog entry started the Nobel Prize idea rolling. But that's my guess.

I agree with Nunyabiz about the unlikelihood of anything coming of this. I also really support the effort to nominate Griffin for the prize. I wonder if there is any way our support can help influence this?
