Oops! Buidling Fails To Fall

By CBS News

Published: Sat, June 28, 2008 - 1:15 pm

A building in the downtown Miami, Florida metro was imploded this morning (6/28).

However, the 12-story structure which developers hoped to demolish in a "clean shoot" did not come down as expected.

While the outside of the building crumpled, the interior section held fast.

Word from the scene is that the explosive package in the center did not detonate.

The developers who own the building want to clear the land for a new 15-story building that will be an office and residential complex.

BBC to broadcast "The Conspiracy Files: 9/11 - The Third Tower" on July 6th

I'm very curious, the preview doesn't look too bad.

The Conspiracy Files: 9/11 - The Third Tower
Sunday, 6, July, 2008
2100 BST, BBC Two

The 47-storey tower collapsed seven hours after the Twin Towers and it has become the subject of heated speculation and a host of conspiracy theories which suggest it was brought down by a controlled demolition.

Nearly seven years on, the final official report on the World Trade Centre is due to be published in July.

Official investigators are expected to conclude that fire caused the collapse of this third tower at the World Trade Centre. But that makes this the first and only skyscraper in the world to collapse solely due to fire.

The Conspiracy Files explores many unanswered questions to try to find out what really happened, and why some people think there was a sinister plot to destroy the building.

An Important Reminder

Posted by mradwin in June 15th, 2008

Posted in: Uncategorized

I often find that if I don't remind myself of the facts, I tend to lose solid belief in the truth. I know that the facts are there, but the things they stand for become far-fetched in my mind. The government attacking the World Trade Center? Attacking the most decorated US naval ship in history? Funding both side of every war? A secret society taking over the world? None of it could be true...But it is. So, here is the top eleven reasons 9/11 was an inside job. Just so all of you can be reminded. Brought to you by www.911truth.org

Architects Investigate World Trade Center’s Collapse

May 8, 2008, Nicole Dial, City News Reporter
http://www.cityonahillpress.com/article.php?id=1229

Conspiracy theorist or skeptic Richard Gage believes that something other than terrorists brought down the World Trade Center on Sept. 11. His story involves specially timed explosives, a team of experts and a well-orchestrated cover-up by our own government.

As part of a group called Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, Gage traveled to Santa Cruz on May 2 to present “9/11: Blueprint for Truth,” a PowerPoint and film presentation that contests the official story of what brought down the towers.

During the presentation, Gage challenged the theories put forth by several governmental agencies that studied the collapse of the towers, such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), saying that none of the previous studies hold up under scrutiny.
“The skyscrapers, welded together and designed not to bend, dropped like a house of cards,” Gage said. “Theories of previous studies don’t account for straight-down collapse or the characteristics of demolitions.”

NEW INVESTIGATION NEEDED TO STOP NEXT 9-11, SAYS ARCHITECT

NEW INVESTIGATION NEEDED TO PREVENT ANOTHER "9-11", SAYS ARCHITECT

By Peter Duveen

PETER’S NEW YORK, May 20, 2008--Richard Gage gives the impression of a meticulous, orderly, punctilious, almost antiseptic professional at first glance. A member of the American Institute of Architects who is attached to a West Coast firm involved in the construction of multi-million dollar projects, Gage has more than likely applied his public speaking and presentation skills to win over prospective clients. But on a recent Friday night he utilized these talents in a different venue, with an underlying passion that transcends the usual marketing pitch. Gage says he wants to save Americans from the same type of incident --or worse--that took the lives of 2,700 people in the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.

Jim Hoffman Interview on University of Winnipeg radio station CKUW

Indepedent journalist Jonathan Wilson will be airing a pre-recorded interview with Jim Hoffman on his show 'People of Interest' Monday May 19th. They will be talking about the controlled demolition on 9/11 as well as the recently published article in civil engineering and the importance of getting this information to a wider audience. 'People of Interest' airs every monday in Winnipeg 8-9am. The interview is 30 minutes long and will be aired at aprox. 8:15am central standard time. Anyone can listen by streaming from www.ckuw.ca or the program can be downloaded after it airs on www.ckuw.ca by going to the program schedule.

Demonstrating that the WTC was demolished using side-by-side before & after streaming video comparisons

I have a hard time explaining to people in words why the aftermath of the World Trade Center collapse can only be explained by the use of explosives; nothing else could have pulverized the buildings so quickly and thoroughly. Since most people need to see something (rather than hear it) in order to process it fully, I put together this page where you can play close-up videos of the Twin Towers in all their enormity simultaneously side-by-side with videos shot at ground zero in the immediate aftermath. I think this can effectively demonstrate to people that the scale of the demolition was beyond what gravity could do by itself.

FEMA Project Godzilla ··· Pre-Planted Explosives in WTC?

(This excerpt is from an anonymous comment posted at the CommonDreams website. If a secret program like Godzilla exists, it would certainly explain a lot of things, but we really need a statement under oath, IMO. -rep.)

"The result was a secret program called Godzilla. This program is in part a secret building code by the terms of which structures deemed of concern must submit a plan for demolition that FEMA keeps on file. Planned buildings over a certain height must submit a demolition plan along with a construction plan and the construction plan must include facilities and features within the structure and machinery for the potential installation of demolition explosives."

Com 8- 14 Points- 25 People- 5 Minutes

Fourteen Points of Agreement with Official Government Reports on the World Trade Center Destruction
http://www.bentham-open.org/pages/content.php?TOCIEJ/2008/00000002/00000001/35TOCIEJ.SGM

In one of my Communications classes, today we gave 5 minute speeches on a “memorable experience”. I used the occasion to talk about last Friday, April 18, 2008 when the Fourteen Points paper was posted on 911Blogger.com. It went something like this:

“Do you still think that jet fuel brought down the World Trade Center?”

Last Friday, I was thinking that today I would be talking to ya’ll about the first time I saw Loose Change, the online DVD that quote is from, which a lot of you have probably heard of. However, last Friday night something happened, that, imho, is just as memorable and is more immediately significant.

WTC Towers Destruction - Human Intelligence

Maybe I am repeating myself - But for possible newcomers to this website I feel this is one of the most obvious evidence that the official story of 9/11 is false - and I feel it is worth repeating.

The official account of what happened to the Twin Towers is that they "collapsed" because of weakened steel. But after watching these three videos available on YouTube and VideoGoogle it is absolutely clear to me that gravity alone not possibly could have pulverized these massive buildings!

Note the ENORMOUS mushroom-shaped-dust-cloud throwing hundreds of thousand tons of massive steel beams and concrete - several hundred meters outwards as it explodes from top to bottom with ENORMOUS force!

Dave Rovics denies controlled demolition, left gatekeeping phenomenon

The following is forwarded from the Dave Rovics mailing list:

Hi folks,

During my recent ten-day vacation in Japan I managed to get some stuff done -- including responding to a fairly massive flood of overwhelmingly positive responses to my last essay. So below, here's another one. As with all of my essays, lyrics, music, etc., feel free to post, forward and distribute wherever you see fit.

Also, for those of you who live in the northwest, I've got a little mid-day gig at Washington State University on Thursday and a keynote address and concert at a conference in eastern Washington on Friday. Next week I'm off to the midwest and the southeast to do shows in Carbondale, IL, Louisville, KY, Whitwell, TN and Asheville, NC. The last three shows will include shows for kids in the afternoon and grownups in the evening, which will hopefully be becoming a regular pattern...

The Case for Controlled Demolition

Retired public defender William Veale presents a concise summary of some of the science behind the controlled demolition hypothesis of the complete collapse of WTC buildings 1,2, and 7 on 9/11.

A Proposal for Proving Controlled Demolition in a Civil Negligence Suit Against the Security Groups Responsible for the WTC

A 9-11 truth buddy of mine here in LA came up with the following proposal about a strategic legal pathway to pursue justice for 9-11. I think it is a great idea, in that it limits the severity of the charges being made (negligence), while advancing the most damning evidence of purposeful mass murder and treason, the controlled demolitions. The case should be against those security groups responsible for the WTC (i.e. Port Authority, Kroll, Stratasec). And it should be a civil case put forth by family members of victims with testimony from eyewitnesses and experts. At the same time that I think we must pursue the larger picture of justice (i.e. treason charges for the overall attack and the subsequent cover-up) through cornering the Congress and Media with the overwhelming evidence in David Ray Griffin's newest book, "9-11 Contradictions," that shows the government's story to be internally contradicted in some places with shifting and inconclusive narratives in many others, this very precise angle of proving controlled demolition in a civil case against the groups responsible for WTC security is a powerful possibility.

"Pull it down Larry" video: The ultimate proof the WTC Brought Down By The Controlled Demolition? - 9 minutes showing a lot

A colleague from the Czech-Slovak 911 movement have sent me the link to a new video (whose original intention was to debunk another debunkers video about WTC7)

But in fact it shows much more than just counterarguments against the debunkers video.

It shows that from the North tower were during the "collapse" clearly visibly ejected large chunks of its core - ripped in pieces of size of several floors, weghting probably at least hundreds of tons - to a realy considerable distance. - They were in past notoricaly confused with the perimeter columns - but perimeter columns were much thinner and mounted with much narower distances. The column distance in chunks - they can be seen in the video - compared to the north face 64m reference, is at least 4 meters, while the distance of the perimeter columns was 1m. The beam structure on the video looks like literally fitting in the proportions of the core mount - so the assumption it is the chunks of core, not the perimeter, looks like one very well supported. What force ripped the large core pieces lateraly out of the building? A Gravitation??
