Major television networks suddenly cut all coverage of the Occupy Oakland demonstration last Tuesday afternoon just as police in full riot gear began using tear-gas, flash-bang canisters and rubber bullets to disperse the gathering.
TheWeatherSpace.com was the first to report the coincidence.
"This is not usually something TWS reports on but no other 'media' outlet will," the natural disaster news and custom weather forecast office posted on its site, a weather watch and extreme weather alert service.
According to both CBS and ABC news, the helicopters overflying the event had to turn back to station to refuel.
"There was a camera on the ground for a full minute," reported The Weather Space. "Showing exploding canisters, people screaming, and gas being covered everywhere and that was shut off shortly after."
Earlier that morning, police had "raided the Occupy Oakland camp and destroyed everything the occupiers had built," blogger and protester Aaron Bady wrote in his Oakland Local blog
Colorado 9/11 Visibility.org, Colorado Citizens Concerned Over What Really Happened on September 11, 2001
From the iStockAnalyst website.
DENVER, March 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Colorado citizens are among the nation's leaders in pursuing the growing questions of what really happened on September 11, 2001.
Two developments are of particular interest:
1) On Sunday March 6, 2011, Colorado citizens will sponsor a debate at the University of Colorado at Boulder exploring the question, "What brought down the three World Trade Center Towers?"
At 5:00 PM, Richard Gage, AIA, a 23-year architect and founder of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, squares off with Chris Mohr, a Denver investigative journalist. See http://colorado911visibility.org/ for event details.
2) On May 20 last year, the Colorado Democratic Party (CDP) adopted its 2010 Platform (http://coloradodems.org/docs/2010PlatformWeb.pdf) that includes a resolution calling for a new, independent investigation of the events of, and related to, September 11, 2001:

An activist group is calling for a complete boycott of corporate mainstream media, starting on the 9th anniversary of 9/11. According the group's facebook page, "Mainstream media networks have barely touched the surface of what happened... Through their negligence, they have made a mockery of the unanswered questions held by the victims' families, and greatly dishonored the 3,000 people who died on 9/11. This must change." The group is urging those who agree to join the boycott, during which participants will rely only on independent media sources for their news. On their page, the group suggests several alternatives to mainstream news, including Raw Story and Information Clearinghouse.
TV Coverage of Remarkable Building Collapse Analyzed
The shocking collapse of the 47-story World Trade Center Building 7 on 9/11 caused great alarm, not only in the architectural and engineering community (among those who have become aware of it) but with mainstream media – right from day one. While Dan Rather’s commentary on the remarkable collapse (that it looked like it was knocked down by well placed dynamite) is more often quoted, Peter Jennings also had similar thoughts as he reflected on the shocking 47-story collapse shortly after the event.
Podcast Show #29: The Boiling Frogs Presents Peter Phillips
Peter Phillips describes Project Censored, its mission, operational style and funding, then talks about what he has coined as ‘Truth Emergency,’ and provides examples such as the intentional misreporting of the number of civilian deaths in the Iraq war, and government insider media groups such as the Rendon Group. Mr. Phillips talks about the findings of his project’s studies and research of some of the more visible left-leaning alternative media with propaganda patterns similar to the mainstream outlets, especially on issues such as Israel, 9/11, and elections, and discusses the notions of objectivity, partisanship, and conspiracy when it comes to the media today, and more!

Half of Americans still don't realize that a third building also came down that day, and it wasn't hit by an airplane. There is a long list of federal investigators who say they were not allowed to do their jobs or complete the investigation, says Tim King.
The mainstream press is showing interest in a taboo, however glaring subject; the inconsistencies in the Bush White House 9/11 account.
As The Washington [Times] reports today, "A lingering technical question about the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks still haunts some, and it has political implications: How did 200,000 tons of steel disintegrate and drop in 11 seconds? A thousand architects and engineers want to know, and are calling on Congress to order a new investigation into the destruction of the Twin Towers and Building 7 at the World Trade Center."
The problems with the official federal stories are endless and according to some of the world's top minds, the suggested account is impossible.
It's not often that this mainstream an outlet does anything other than a hit piece, but here is one of those rare occasions. Washington Times welcomes comments so let's spread some truth.
Incidentally, this blog entry and comments should be used as a compendium for press coverage. If you do a Google News search on "9/11+truth" you'll find that this global push for truth which occurred on 2/19 is getting picked up on by quite a few outlets, some favorably, some not. I would have thought that the right wing Washington Times would be the last place on earth for a favorable piece. Maybe times are achangin'...
I knew it, I knew it! Media is listening to us!! Right, it's not a national paper, but a major one in Okinawa Prefecture. ;o)
Lecture in Ginowan on 13th
Chasing the mysteries of 9/11 tragedy
There's been a doubt that the WTC twin towers in NYC were planned to be destroyed by somebody, due to the way they fell straight down.
The night of September 12, 2001, I happened to put the TV on and saw a familiar building from portfolio of architecture burning. I turned the volume up thinking it was a movie like "The Towering Inferno" only to find out it was live.
I am still mystified to this day of the scene of the two buildings collapse vertically.
They say a commercial aircraft crashed into the Pentagon - the US Department of Defense, but there was no aircraft wreckage left at the scene.
They have failed this country, and the world.

Sir Christopher Monckton of the Science and Public Policy Institute has written the most comprehensive understanding I’ve found of the “Climategate” scandal, Climategate: Caught green-handed. I wrote a condensed version, here. The even further condensed version:
Global temperature averages peaked in 1997, and have been on a slight overall decline through 2009. Among the six global warming gases, carbon dioxide (CO2) is the most important. CO2 readings have increased beyond 1997 through to the present. The global warming argument is that CO2 increases causes increased global temperatures. The scandal is that scientists at the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit (CRU), the main data point for the global warming argument, had thousands of internal e-mails leaked that revealed the following unethical and possibly criminal behavior:
Manipulating computer programming to “hide the decline” of global temperatures.

People with intellectual integrity and moral courage embrace the evidence of “mainstream” media lies of omission and commission regarding US wars and transfer of trillions of dollars to banksters. The evidence linked is objective, independently verifiable, and in broad daylight for anyone and everyone to see.
So-called “mainstream” media also censors consideration of the answer to our economic crisis: monetary reform. When the facts are clear that transferring the power to create money from banks to the public for the direct payment of taxes saves Americans over a trillion dollars every year, ends the national debt and ~$450 billion in annual interest payments, and that this idea was backed by many of America’s brightest historical minds, that this idea would solve our unemployment catastrophe (and here), and the idea has no mention from these five corporations, we can safely conclude deliberate censorship.
Richard Gage of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, is currently on a speaking tour in Australasia, which includes presentations in Wellington and Auckland, New Zealand on the 21st and 30th of November, respectively.
While he received little mainstream media coverage in Australia, the New Zealand media has been more receptive. The Wellington paper, The Capital Times, ran a full-page article about him and the attacks of 9/11 in this week’s edition, which is described by Wellingtonian 9/11 truth activist, Helen Waddington, as “Absolutely fantastic!”
Waddington, who has been taking the names of those who want to register for Gage’s Wellington presentation at Te Papa on the 21st of November, advised on Wednesday evening: “My phone is going nuts as I type this and we are up to 200 registered at present.” She said at this rate, the event should be fully booked by Saturday. The venue seats 300.
This is many ways could be a more important opportunity than the tenth anniversary.
Does anyone remember when the Alex Jones crowd overpowered the corporate media at the Democratic National Convention last year?
We need this to happen outside the courthouse where KSM will be tried, a thousand times over what we saw at the DNC.
While those corporate pundits are standing there getting paid millions to keep us in the dark, we will use our voices and several bullhorns and overwhelm the corporate airwaves with truth!
At a point when many Americans have a "it was a long time ago" attitude about 9/11 and even the corporate media doesn't talk about it much, this is a golden opportunity.
Mobilize and Overwhelm!
April 20, 2008 The New York Times broke the news that the Pentagon (and members of the Bush Administration) had been coordinating with retired military analysts on talking points to cover in their media appearances, as part of a 'psyop' on the American public to sell the 'post-9/11 world', the 'War on Terror', Guantanamo, torture, and the continued occupation of Iraq. These 'analysts', many of whom had undisclosed conflicts of interest such as financial ties to defense contractors, appeared over 4500 times in the media, as part of this campaign. The media outlets responsible for participating in the program- which includes the NY Times- have generally not acknowledged any fault on their own part, and some commentators attempted to spin the psyop as simply the Pentagon telling their side of things. A DOD Inspector General investigation found no wrong doing on the part of the Pentagon, but that report was later found to be so flawed, it was retracted and removed from the DOD's website.

Why is the Mainstream Media not Demanding the Truth About 9/11?
1. Former FBI Translator and Whistleblower Sibel Edmonds has exposed, among many other disturbing revelations, that Osama bin Laden and "Al Qaeda" (which simply means "the base") were working with government intelligence operatives right up until the morning of 9/11 (and perhaps beyond):
2. The 9/11 Commission Report has been exposed as almost entirely untrue by John Farmer, the Dean of Rutgers School of Law--Newark who served as Senior Counsel to the Commission:
3. No reasonably intelligent and rational individual could possibly watch the full two hours of this video and still honestly believe everything the American government has told its citizens about the events of 11 September 2001:

OPERATION BLACKOUT by World911Truth.org
Worldwide Release: September 11th, 2009
On April 3rd, 2009 one of the most important and explosive scientific paper was released by scientists from 3 countries. The paper is entitled “Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe” and demonstrates that unignited explosive residues were found in the dust of the World Trade Center collapse. This highly advanced nano-size explosive called nanothermite, which is not made in a cave in Afghanistan but rather in US defense contractor labs, could be responsible for the destruction of the Twin Towers and Building 7 on September 11, 2001.
Composed almost entirely of news broadcasts from 9/11, 9/12 and 9/13, this film shows the media lies that stuck with the public and more importantly, the truths that were quickly forgotten. Downloadable versions available below the fold.

Exclusive Interview with FBI Whistleblower Sibel Edmonds
By Khatchig Mouradian • on August 21, 2009 •
On April 23, 2007, I sat down in Washington, D.C. with FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds for an extensive interview, which was published in the Armenian Weekly and on ZNet and widely circulated.
On Aug. 18, 2009, I conducted a follow-up phone interview with Edmonds, who was visiting New Zealand. The interview is an overview of what has transpired in her case since 2007, with emphasis on her deposition in the Schmidt vs. Krikorian case in Ohio earlier this month.
KBDI Colorado Public Television to Air ‘9/11: Blueprint for Truth
Saturday, August 15, 2009 - 7:00 - 9:00 pm MDT
KBDI, Channel 12 will be featuring ‘9/11: Blueprint for Truth’ as a pledge drive fundraiser. Richard Gage, AIA, will be at the studio for on-air interviews during this historic broadcast.
We are thrilled with this development!
However, please do not call or email KBDI.
The staff at KBDI thank you all for your calls and emails regarding the broadcasts of ‘9/11 Press For Truth’ and the upcoming broadcast of ‘9/11: Blueprint for Truth.’ As much as they would like to be able to personally respond to everyone, they cannot as the volume of grateful responses is overwhelming their small staff!
But here are things you can do that will help the 9/11 Truth movement:
1) If you are outside the Colorado area, contact your local PBS station and deliver to them a copy of ‘9/11 Press for Truth,’ ‘Zero,’ and ‘9/11: Blueprint for Truth.’ Tell them of the great success KBDI Colorado Public Television has had with their pledge drive with ‘9/11 Press for Truth,’ and suggest they screen these films.
Don’t forget, this is a relationship you are building with your local PBS station. We may soon have some guidelines for you–but you know what to do: dress nicely, be polite, build credibility, thank them, follow up after they’ve had time to view the films, be patient, etc.
Look for an opportunity to volunteer for your local PBS station.
2) If you choose to support KBDI with a financial contribution when ‘9/11: Blueprint for Truth’ is screened on August 15, 2009, call or email and make a pledge. Colorado 9/11 Visibility will be at the phones and delighted to be overwhelmed by your calls!
70% of KBDI’s funding comes directly from the Colorado Community and mostly in the way of individual contributions — this is how they stay in business.
3) Donate anytime to KBDI!

I saw the bit on MSNBC with your guest Brzezinski:
Hypocrite Brzezinski Slams "Conspiratorial View" Of History While Highlighting 50's Iran Overthrow
Perhaps you haven't examined the official myth about 9/11, i.e. that it was accomplished solely by Al Qaeda and Bin Laden. Given that Obama made a claim and didn't back it up with any facts- while admitting that elements in the US and Britain conspired to overthrow Mossadegh a half century ago- it's kind of a misnomer to say he "debunked" "9/11 conspiracists". And given the many lies told by Bush Administration principals about 9/11, and given the 9/11 Commission's failure to conduct a full and honest investigation- who's to say what really happened on 9/11?
The 9/11 Commission ignored 70% of the 9/11 families' questions
And your employer, MSNBC, published a report that says 25% of the 9/11 Commission Report, including the sections most relevant to linking 9/11 to al Qaeda and Bin Laden, was based on testimony obtained by torture:
For immediate release
The film’s producer and a victim’s father will be in KBDI’s studio for the premiere
DENVER – (May 26, 2009) – 9/11 Press for Truth, an independent documentary that claims a 9/11 cover-up, has been shown in theatres and broadcast overseas, but it hasn’t been aired on a U.S. broadcast station.
That will change next week when KBDI-Channel 12 premiers the controversial documentary Wednesday, June 3 at 7 p.m.
During Channel 12’s premiere, Bob McIlvaine, who lost his son Bobby at the World Trade Center, and 9/11Press for Truth producer Kyle Hence will join KBDI-Channel 12’s Shari Bernson in KBDI’s studio.

Rob Kall interviews Sibel Edmonds
Rob Kall of Op-Ed News interviewed Sibel on Wednesday. The audio ought to show up here at some point.
The following is a partial transcript. All errors, edits and omissions are mine.
We (NSWBC) stopped our activities for a while, and we are restarting them again, and I just launched my blog, www.123realchange.blogspot.com, and the first series that I'm posting there is on the mainstream media, and in the next few days, you're going to see more than 300 whistleblowers who are going to post their comments at the blog too, about their experiences with various people in the mainstream media.
Media Breakthrough! 9-11 Press for Truth to Be Shown on Mainstream Television
I am very happy to announce that for the first time in our movements history, 9-11 Press for Truth will be shown on a mainstream media television station. KBDI Channel 12 in Denver Colorado has just confirmed that they will be showing this groundbreaking film during their upcoming pledge drive on June 3, 2009.
As has been the case in the recent past, Colorado 9-11 Visibility will be there manning the phone banks and expect to get some prime time during this showing to make our plea for a new investigation into the crimes of September 11th, 2001.
As many of you may know, this is not the first time that Colorado 9-11 Visibility has made an appearance on KBDI. Our most recent appearance was in March of this year during the showing of America, Freedom to Fascism. Our time at KBDI actually goes back a couple of years when one of our members, Michael Anderson approached the station about our group volunteering to man the phones during their pledge drive. As a perk for the volunteering organization, KBDI gives the opportunity to promote the group on-air during their time on the phone banks and promote we did! We do not know the whole story on what kind of effect we had, but during this initial appearance on KBDI, we handed out DVD's and other 9-11 related literature to the staff at the station. To me, they were friendly enough, but I felt their reception of us was lukewarm at best. What a nice surprise to us when we were invited back again and again for all subsequent pledge drives since and given and increasingly warmer reception. And now this! We are ecstatic over this as it is the result of years of determined work by our group of very dedicated activists here in Colorado.
I felt I had to post when the uber mainstream "Parade" magazine in this Sunday's paper had OBL on the cover w/ his FBI mugshot saying he's wanted for 911. He's not, unless you include "other terror events". Here's the Parade pablum piece, if you're interested http://www.parade.com/export/sites/default/news/2009/02/who-are-the-worl...
Propaganda is annoying!
