It was a sunny but chilly day. I don’t remember how many friends were aboard or even exactly which ones they were. None of that matters. If any of them ever read this they’ll know who they are. We were half a dozen or so, because my sailboat, really it was my Dad’s or the family’s, measured 28 feet in length and someone always got in the way at the helm. For lack of wind we were motoring southward in the Intracoastal Waterway some 30 miles north of Cape Kennedy, or Cape Canaveral as it was called before NASA took it over. 10, 9, 8… I stopped the motor.
A staff reporter of the Stratford Gazette in Ontario, Canada, interviewed members of AE9/11Truth, Kitchener 9/11 Truth and the University of Waterloo 9/11 Research Group. The number of facts regarding the anomalies surrounding the events of 9/11 in this article is simply exceptional. Here's the article:
It would be greatly appreciated to send positive feedback to the reporter: firstname.lastname@example.org
Moreover, this article strongly reinforces Elizabeth Woodworth's excellent paper regarding the media's response to the growing influence of the 9/11 Truth Movement.
Americans are woefully ignorant of False Flag operations, they are continually misled by corporatist candidates of both the Democratic and Republican brands, and their future is being continuously robbed from them. Meanwhile, young people are being saddled with $100,000 college education expenses (a scandal in and of itself, IMO) and then being thrust into a economy wreaking of a 'jobless recovery'.
Well, who ya gonna call? Ghost Busters? Nah - that was just a movie. :-) .
Perhaps the Republican or Democrat clubs that one finds on campuses will foster truth-telling about what horrors their namesake's have wrought?
Nope - ain't gonna happen.
I THINK THIS IS A JOB FOR WE ARE CHANGE.
Such thoughts have been percolating in my mind for a while, but a recent comment here at 911blogger made things gel in my mind. zombie bill hicks wrote:

Some people in the 9/11 truth movement have really been working hard recently to help bridge the gap to the anti-war movement.

Report from Boston
The Peace Movement versus the 9/11Truth movement
by Barrie Zwicker
What goes with the “split” between the anti-war movement and the 9/11Truth movement? Some light was shed on this regrettable reality in Boston the weekend of Jan. 30-31, 2010. On Saturday New England United (NEU), an umbrella group, held an anti-war strategy conference. The next day Northeast 9/11Truth held its strategy conference, in part an analysis of the previous day’s events.
As both a lifelong member of the peace movement, and a committed 9/11Truther, I attended all of the Saturday conference where I was a workshop leader, and the first half of the Sunday conference (having to leave early because of travel arrangements). My main points:
1) There is a split but it has not been initiated, nor is it maintained, by members of the 9/11Truth movement. Truthers stand just as proudly and tall in their opposition to war as anyone in the peace movement. Truthers also are just as fully dedicated to the goals of justice, equality and environmentalism as are anti-war activists.
2) The split is unilateral from the anti-war movement’s side, especially from leaders and organizers. Those at the grassroots level trust and take their cues from the leaders. The result is a widespread attitude toward 9/11Truth that ranges from scepticism to outright hostility. This is why I choose the heading “The Peace Movement versus the 9/11Truth Movement.”
3) A leading cause of the unilateral split is the work of planted agents of the state – spooks -- whose instructions are to do this splitting. The Chinese call such agents “splittists.” The peace movement has been around for decades, so there’s been loads of time for the national security state to install numerous agents within it. Added to their usual instructions to slyly foment divisiveness within peace groups and derail effective anti-war actions are new orders to combat the dynamic truth movement.
Derek from Kitchener 9/11 Truth gave Mark from Truth Action Ottawa a great interview about his experiences starting up a 9/11 truth chapter in his community. Derek is a great example of someone standing up to fill the void in his community; no one was handing out discs in his area yet, so Derek decided to take the initiative.
Listen to the interview here.

Happy Holidays from The Corbett Report!
Hello Truthseekers & Truthtellers, On December 16th, 2009 we held our 4th Annual Milwaukee/Lake Michigan Tea Party For 9/11 Truth. We barbeque the 9/11 Commission Report and throw the ashes into Lake Michigan. We also read from a scroll and this year we added an authentic colonial drum which we marched to. Here is the two part Youtube that documents our event. Thanks to all those that joined us on this very cold Wisconsin day.
Take Care Matt
Over the past three years we have organized this event in all kinds of weather on the anniversary of the Boston Tea Party. Here's clips of those past events;

2nd Tea Party 12/16/07:
A number of groups against the war showed up at "war criminal" Karl Rove's speaking engagement at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee on December 3rd, 2009.
We were given access to the hallway right in front of the Wisconsin Room where Karl Rove was speaking. Near the end of the video a protestor is being ejected and detained by university police for disrupting Karl Rove's speech. This is what our founding fathers would expect of true patriotic American citizens when our country is being led by war criminals starting wars of aggression. Thanks to all the patriotic protestors that showed up for this protest. Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
Below is a short clip from Channel 58 (CBS) Milwaukee where Karl Rove calls the "Hecklers" intellectual liberals and he gets a big cheer from the audience, many of them student republicans. He then goes into his smoozing bit telling his audience he loves being in Milwaukee and his connections with his family to this area.

If you asked me when I was a high school senior in 1988, with Nancy Regan moaning on TV, if I would ever read such an article in the NY Times, I'd say it'd be impossible. Actually, I would have probably said "What are you, on dope?"
Push to Legalize Marijuana Gains Ground in California
Twenty years ago the legalized pot movement was about as "grass-roots" as you could get. It was subject to major ridicule. Sustained as much name-calling, lunatic-comparing, and media derision as any other fringe movement. Police are against it, lawmakers are against it, teachers, ministers, and parents are against it. The supporters were jailed, fined, and considered the dregs of society. It has been considered so morally defunct that jobs, families, and futures have be destroyed by belonging to this cause. Fully equating oneself with it was (and still technically is) illegal.
But it is succeeding, and with that, 911 Truth should find a blast of hope.
I've written about electoral politics and the failure of activism (of many worthy types, not just 911 Truth activism) from time to time, at 911 blogger, JREF, and elsewhere. E.g., recently, I wrote a diary here, and commented here.
Even though I'm all over the map, politically, and don't like categorizing myself (other than independent), the blogs and fora that deal with electoral politics, that I follow, are on the progressive side of things. (I'm also a member of the Progressive Democrats of America, even though I've never been a Democrat. Make of that what you will. :-) ). Conservative web sites that I have long considered 'best of breed' are amconmag.com and chroniclesmagazine.org, but they don't have much to say about electoral politics.
(Cross-posted at JREF, here.)
This was inspired by a snarkier, debunker-laden thread called The Greatest Fiascos of the 9-11 "Truth" Movement
Here's my list:
1) Failure to investigate 911 hijacker associations, where such investigations require no state power, whatsoever. Indeed, the failure is worse than that - there was never (AFAIK) even any attempt to organize a fundraiser for such investigations. I'm thinking particularly of verifying and/or dis-confirming the work of Daniel Hopsicker (madcowprod.com), but also looking into, e.g., who the hijackers were schmoozing with in NJ, the reports suggesting Saudi intelligence handlers of 2 of the hijackers in San Diego, etc.
The new album by Monsters of Folk, comprised of four frontmen for other groups including Jim James of My Morning Jacket, have crafted a superb album that includes a song with a nod to the 9/11 debate.
The song is called baby boomer here is the relevant section:
"And we gotta stand a little closer
To the lessons that we’ve learned
Is it just a premonition?
Could we really get ourselves both burned?
I’ve been sent here on a mission to find what we agree upon
We don’t agree about September,
Could we agree on Vietnam?"
Check it out, great music.

Before I begin, I would like to say that theorizing about what happened on 9/11, when you're not being given answers to your questions about that day by the people who SHOULD be able to do so, is PERFECTLY normal. As is suspecting that the reason these answers aren't being given is "sinister" in nature. As Ray McGovern said, "for people to dismiss these questioners as "conspiratorial advocates", or "conspiratorial theorists"... that's completely out of line because the... The questions remain because the President who should be able to answer them, WILL NOT." When you think about everything the previous Administration did in 8 years, the idea that they might not be giving us the answers we seek because of something "sinister" is not crazy. In fact, it's the most logical conclusion one can come to at this point. After years of obfuscation, spin, lies, and cover-ups regarding the 9/11 attacks, it is unavoidable to think that criminal complicity is the reason why.
