One of the discussions I hear the most between fellow activists is "why won't people wake up?" or "what will it take to get everyone to come together?"
About 7 months ago I suffered a severe injury to my back. It was broken essentially. This is personal, but perhaps useful in making my point. I now have something called "Cauda Equina Syndrome." For me (it can be different for other people), it means I have lost bladder control, bowel control, sex control, half of my legs are numb, and the muscles in my feet no longer work. The latter means I am wheelchair bound most of the time.
I have had to suffer through the system in nursing homes which are more like minimum security prisons. Now, however, I have an apartment. Because I can't walk, and don't have a scooter yet, I am essentially homebound 24/7 (unless someone comes to take me out for a while). It is a "prison" in its own right. Hopefully over time this will change.

(Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court on Thursday revived claims by families of victims of the September 11, 2001, attacks who alleged that Saudi Arabia provided material support to al Qaeda.
We Are Change spoke with Mr. Moore and he agrees that we need a New Investigation and he wants to see the Videos from the PENTAGON.
We Are Change
A decorated ex-clandestine operative for the Pentagon offers new revelations about the role the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) played in the shut-down of the military's notorious Able Danger program, alleged to have identified five of the 9/11 hijackers inside America more than a year before the attacks.
Offering new revelations about the CIA's role in shutting down military intelligence penetration of al-Qaeda, Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer joins a growing list of government officials accusing former CIA director George Tenet of misleading federal investigators and sharing some degree of blame for the 9/11 attacks.
Your very own co-founder of 9/11Blogger has finally written a book! '9/11 Truther' details Jon's experiences in the 9/11 truth movement and why it is still vitally important to the welfare of the world that the event be fully investigated for the purposes of justice, accountability, and peace.
Jon is a personal friend of mine whose work I've followed for years. I've often played the role of sounding board for Jon, a man whose early life experiences mirror many of my own.
He is a working class gentleman who has dedicated his life to spreading the message of the Jersey Girls, to doing everything in his power to help the forgotten, neglected, and ailing 9/11 First Responders, and to spreading the ideas and beliefs of many great American icons such as Martin Luther King, Jr and Cindy Sheehan.
Speaking of Cindy Sheehan, she was kind enough to author the foreword to Jons' book. Cindy is an elegant wordsmith. She is a woman that has earned my utmost respect for being consistent, outspoken, and incendiary. She does not disappoint here.
On 9/11/11Vic Sadot released a new 16 song CD titled "9/11 Truth & Justice Songs". One of the songs on that CD that was made into a music video celebrates the Occupy Wall Street movement and visually weaves 9/11 Truth and Occupy themes into the music video. Attention guitarists and singers! The lyrics and guitar chords follow below after some brief commentary. Here is the link!
Oh What A Day! at YouTube:
"Oh What A Day!" is a basic blues song with vocals and acoustic guitar by Vic Sadot and violin by Eric Golub. The song speaks to the deep and growing disillusion and sense of betrayal that many US citizens have come to feel due to the fact that the Obama-Biden regime has continued the policies of the Bush-Cheney regime and refused to investigate their crimes. Of course, serious advocates of truth and justice never felt any such sentiment. They already saw through the two party charade, which election after election, delivers a mandate to imperial wars abroad and policies of class war on the poor and middle class at home.
I can’t speak for the rest of you. I can only speak for myself. For almost 9 years now, I have done my very best to tell the next person about the lies of 9/11. To try and get the media to cover certain issues pertaining to 9/11, and to try and bring justice to the families that lost someone that day, and to the people of the world. Because as I’ve said several times, we were all attacked that day.
Almost every waking minute, I try and think about how to get a “foot in the door,” as far as getting the debate about 9/11 back on the table, so we can finally find out what happened that day and who was ultimately responsible. I’ve written article after article, created movie after movie, contacted journalist after journalist in the hopes of finally breaking through the wall that has been put up around the myth of 9/11. In one way or another, that is basically what everyone who advocates for this cause tries to do.
Since 9/11 , many Muslims have been persecuted, here's the story of Mohamed Harkat.

As Project Censored states in their 2011 Book, we are in a crisis that may well be described as a "Truth Emergency". This has been a deep problem for US society for many years. However, it most certainly got accelerated after the exploitation of the 9/11 attacks to promote war, surveillance, and a new wave of repressive laws named in Orwellian fashion as the so-called "Patriot Act".
Are you aware that the King family took a civil suit into a Memphis court in 1999 with William Pepper as their lawyer? They presented numerous witnesses who had been steadfastly avoided by the Memphis police and government investigators. Are you aware of any of the following information? If not, why not? If yes, will you be getting this information out as part of your 2011 observance of the life and legacy of Martin Luther King? Read on please...
William Pepper is a legendary American author, British barrister, and King family lawyer. Martin Luther King contacted William Pepper after reading an article Pepper had written in Ramparts magazine about the effects of the Vietnam War on the children of Vietnam. He invited Pepper to speak to his congregation, which was the beginning of a life-long friendship with MLK and his family. William Pepper continued to investigate the assassination of MLK for years, and he represented the King family in court.
The King family and William Pepper got considerable criticism in the mainstream press for stating that they did not believe that James Earl Ray was the killer of King. In 1999 they won a trial in a Memphis, Tennessee court from a jury of six whites and six blacks. They won a unanimous conviction of Loyd Jowers and “unnamed government conspirators” for the murder of Martin Luther King. King was executed in broad daylight at the Lorraine Motel on April 4, 1968. Jowers was the owner of Jim’s Grill across the street from the Lorraine Motel where some of the assassination planning was done. Jowers and waitresses from that era gave testimony that persuaded the American jury that there was a “conspiracy” to execute Dr King. William Pepper later wrote a book about the trial and the lack of fair or even any media coverage in the case of their victory. William Pepper’s book is called “An Act of State: The Execution of Martin Luther King”.
I wrote a song to highlight some of the facts revealed in the trial and the book. Then I made a video for it and posted it on YouTube. Have you watched it? The lyrics are below...

One way to be true to the dream and the commitment of the Rev Dr King would be to get this information out into the sunlight of public discussion as part of this year's celebration of who he really was! He would be marching stalwartly on Obama's White House and on the now Republican controlled US Congress. The book is in public libraries. Here is a link to a free mp3 download of the song. If you need an mp3 attachment, just request it and it will be sent to you promptly by TruthTroubadour@gmail.com
Carry it on!

Following is another article by the prolific writer and poet, Jerry Mazza.
This is both the story of the Bavis family, which is getting the first civil
trial ever for their son Mark. Yet Ellen Mariani, whose husband Neil was
lost on the same flight F 175 that hit Tower 2, has not gotten a trial or a
financial reward. In fact, her stepdaughter Loren Mariani Peters seems to be
negotiating a side-deal with the airlines. Ellen, by the way, is a senior
citizen on Social Security, going to food banks, Good Will for warm
clothing, and caring for mentally-challenged individuals and solders in her
own home. The story reeks of corruption.

We were at least nine at Gare Saint-Lazare between 15h00 and till late As usual Yves Ducourneau had well organised the gathering with his photos and personnel books and documents which he put on exposition.
Some people were shocked to hear that some of us have been
The truth is getting out but if only we could get the journalists to take up the matter the truth would get out quicker.
In the meantime, we need more 911 thruthers to leave their computers for a half day and go down on the street and be seen at least each 11 th of the month.

Perhaps there is too much information in this issue. My head is spinning just trying to summarize it. Steve Alten for one is a superb writer and for his tenth book has come around with a story putting 9/11 under the radar, highlighting bio-weapon concerns in 2012 in New York City. In this fictional tale, Alten again uses facts in the past, such as where the US military-grade Anthrax came from and why it was used to scare people and blaming it on Muslims. How people can get all excited about a Muslim community center and not upset of this shows me just how mind-controlled, traumatized, many people have become.
