Essential Reading

No matter what your views are concerning who caused the events of 9/11 to unfold and the details of how those events were carried out, it seems very difficult to argue convincingly against the idea that the U.S. government has taken advantage of those events to restrict the basic freedoms that are enumerated within the U.S. Constitution and its Bill of Rights.

Unfortunately, due to our wonderful educational system and general public apathy from having it too good for too long, losing freedom is somewhat of an abstract idea—especially when it occurs incrementally over a sufficiently long period of time.

The concept of freedom is one that we all take for granted one that that we feel we understand, but I would contend that most people in fact do not sufficiently understand it at all. In all the history of human civilization, in fact, very few people have.

This is the thesis of "The Discovery of Freedom" by Rose Wilder Lane. This book was published in 1943 while a certain war was going on, and it is one of those books that can make you say "Ah, ha! Now I get it!."

Shelling Out for The Shell Game? – Use Your Rebate

By now we should all know that this Steve Alten guy is for real. Like some of the other new leaders of the truth movement, Steve is smart and articulate, and effective at getting his message across under pressure. And when given the chance, he speaks the truth powerfully. So getting him opportunities for major media appearances seems like a pretty good idea.

Of course there are other good books and videos we can support. Books like David Griffin’s new “Contradictions”, and Zarembka’s soft cover edition coming out this month, also deserve to be widely read. I also enjoyed the new 9/11 drama “The Reflecting Pool”, a creative effort that strikes me as being similar to The Shell Game.

But how can truth activists, many of whom have already sacrificed so much, afford to buy multiple copies of these new books and videos?

One way is to use the Bush Administration’s shameful “tax rebate” for the purpose, and to encourage others to do the same. If the crooks are going to rob our kids by borrowing even more money to give out tax rebates, at least those rebates could be used to help the next generation by getting out the truth while we still can.

9/11 Truth Needs to Reach Out to Hispanic World, Minorities

A wistful recollection remains with me from the Los Angeles Grand Jury for 9/11 Truth two years ago.

A Mexican wedding was in progress in another part of the hall. We activists brushed shoulders with the Hispanic guests in the common areas, without exchanging words or scarcely even glances, as if moving in separate dimensions. Surely our issue could be vital to them, too? I racked my brains to think of what might bridge the gap, only to come up against a feeling that to them, we must seem hopelessly white middle-class, and our issue an arcane matter of concern only to an infighting gringo faction.

Yet any nation is naturally more apt than the Anglo-American to recognize 9/11 for what it is: an instrument for projecting the empire. Hispanics have a historical consciousness of deception and war provocation from the Norteamericano wars on Mexico in 1846 and Spain in 1898. So each time I had a 9/11 book that was selling well – first The War on Freedom and later 9/11 Synthetic Terror – I had high hopes of finding a Spanish publisher, but it hasn't been easy.

The Suppressed September 11th

Recommended Reading Concerning 9/11

 

(This article will refer the reader to some compendiums of credible news reports concerning the attacks of 9/11. Most of these news stories were mentioned briefly, and then conspicuously forgotten about by news organizations, by purported investigators, and even by the general public.

Seminal Book Released – A Cornerstone for the Truth Movement

Peter Dale Scott's historic new book, The Road to 9/11: Wealth, Empire, and the Future of America, is now available.

The importance of this publication should not be underestimated. Published by the University of California Press, Scott's new book goes further than any other book so far published about 9/11, to identify and establish through unimpeachable documentary evidence the historic factors that have made the crime of 9/11 and its cover-up possible. More than this, The Road to 9/11 demonstrates exactly how it has happened over the past half century that American democracy has been fundamentally undermined, and, vitally, how it can be re-established.

Please vote for Amazon review slamming CIA-da capo Geo Tenet's new bestseller "At the Center of the Storm"

Once again, so-called "revelatory" disinformation by "former" CIA figures hits the best-seller list.

But Amazon gives us a chance to write reviews of such works, and reach large numbers of shoppers with the truth about the CIA and 9/11.

Amazingly, they've just posted my review entitled "Lies, Damned Lies and CIA Revelations" (see first few paragraphs below.)

You can do two things to promote 9/11 Truth here-

- Vote for this review to help keep it on the top page where book browsers will see it. The link is http://www.amazon.com/At-Center-Storm-Years-CIA/dp/0061147788
- Try your hand at posting your own reviews.

(If your review isn't posted right away, try working on it some more. I often spend a couple hours fine-tuning a review so it abides by the rules, gets past the censor, and carries a punch without being too offputting to the unaccustomed reader.)

Well, this one has put quite a few people off.
The 4 to 1 vote against me, and the praise lavished on Tenet's lies by unsuspecting reader-reviewers there, show we still have a lot of waking up to do!

9/11 Global Deceit

Nature and Meaning of September 11th

First Italian International Conference on the events of September 11th, 2001

Bologna, Teatro Arena del Sole

Sunday 17th September 2006

from 14.00 to 23.00

Five years after September 11th 2001, the real criminal nature of the WTC and Pentagon attacks has finally been made clear, as has the culpability of the Bush Administration in orchestrating those dramatic events.

Thanks to dedicated research activities by an increasing number of scholars—Americans and others—the truth concerning the tragedy of New York has definitively surfaced. Staged by the financiers and giant firms behind the American Government, September 11th emerges as a consciously fabricated event concocted on political grounds and aimed at the implementation of a strategic, geopolitical agenda for the realization of a new empire.

New Book Puts Giuliani in His Place

Time to downsize Rudy 9/11 myth - nydailynews.com

The images and their accompanying story line are, by now, the stuff of legend, seared into memory. Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a lame-duck local pol, becomes the take-charge, already prepared leader of a stunned city and nation on Sept. 11, 2001, striding through the streets of lower Manhattan with his top commanders to rescue, rally and reassure the populace.

Five years later, Giuliani is a pop-culture superhero ("I didn't have time to be afraid, Oprah") and has unabashedly converted 9/11 into wealth, fame and a shot at the White House.

But a new exhaustively researched and unsentimental peek behind the mythology strongly suggests that Giuliani and his top deputies committed many errors that did grave, even fatal, harm to citizens, emergency responders and recovery teams before, on and after that terrible day. Investigative reporters Wayne Barrett and Dan Collins, the co-authors of "Grand Illusion: The Untold Story of Rudy Giuliani and 9/11," think the time has come for the public to trade in myth for some hard, uncomfortable truths.
..
Giuliani's top team comes in for criticism: Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik essentially served as Giuliani's personal bodyguard on 9/11 instead of running the NYPD. "I don't know who was directing. I literally don't," current Commissioner Raymond Kelly told the authors.
