JFK against gov't secrecy

http://fawcett911.us/audio/JFK-SecrecyAndSecretSocietiesAndMIcomplex.mp3
(about five minutes)

This is an important tape with direct relevance to 9/11 (unless you think recent history has no relevance).

In it JFK gives his ideas about gov't secrecy, the press, and the duty of the press to tell the truth and to inform the public.

Compare his words to what we hear today.

JFK was killed in '63, about fifteen years after the "shadow gov't" in its modern form really got going.

Listen to what he says. That's where we were as a nation not so long ago.

Consider 9/11 Blogger and what people are doing on these pages.

You can feel history with this one.

A Free Method to Spread 911 Truth -- 200 views/minute!

Hi 911 Truthers!

Here is a free method for spreading 911 Truth to a new audience. Search Google Video and Youtube for the most popular videos and post a comment relating them to 911. The better your comment relates the video to 911, the less likely it will be tagged as spam. The most popular videos get over 200 views/minute ! Problem is so many comments are posted that after an hour or so the comment will move off of the first (video) page, so we need everyone to post!

Example one: While searching protest music, I found this one, 'My Chemical Romance - Famous Last Words ' (28.6 million views since January):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bbTtPL1jRs

Did a little research about MCR on Wikipedia and posted this:

"Gerard Way was inspired to form 'My Chemical Romance' after witnessing the planes hit the WTC on 9/11/01. 9-11-01 WTC hero William Rodriguez and many others said the basement exploded and severe injuries occurred before any plane hit! With controlled demolition the basement is destroyed first to make room for the rubble, and in this case vaults filled with gold were in the basement. See Google videos '911 mysteries' and 'Loose Change'."

Pre-empt the View? The President calls what would have been a well-timed press conference.

ABC's "The View", originally scheduled to feature 9/11 Truth proponents Willie Rodriguez and the Loose Change crew, would have been pre-empted by Bush's press conference today had it not already been cancelled.

Coincidence or not?

On a side note: The Press Conference was a sham. Bush is a blathering idiot and the press are controlled. We as a nation should be ashamed of ourselves for allowing Bush & Co. to dictate for the past 6+ years.

They shot Kennedy. Bush & Co. thrives. What a world.

Media Matters: Conservative media tout flawed poll to call Dems 9-11 conspiracy theorists

Media watchdog group, Media Matters, extensively covers the right wing media attempts to paint the left as "whacko conspiracy theorists."

"Several conservative commentators have misrepresented the results of an April 20-May 1 Rasmussen Results poll question -- which was itself ambiguous -- to accuse a substantial percentage of Democrats of believing that President Bush knew about the 9-11 attacks in advance and deliberately did nothing to stop them. According to Rasmussen Reports, respondents were asked, "Did Bush know about the 9/11 attacks in advance?" Twenty-two percent replied that he did, 55 percent that he did not, and 22 percent were not sure. According to the poll: "Thirty-five percent of Democrats believe he did know, 39% say he did not know, and 26% are not sure. Republicans reject that view and, by a 7-to-1 margin, say the President did not know in advance about the attacks. Among those not affiliated with either major party, 18% believe the President knew and 57% take the opposite view."

Media Crucifies Green Party Hopeful for 9-11 Views

An article that finally does justice to Green candidate Kevin Potvin and tells the 'whole story', after he was savaged in the mainstream media to vilify him, the alternative media, and anyone who dares to think 'outside the box' that the corporate MSM elite imprison us all with (including the Green Party), to limit public debate and deter dissent.

Dirty deeds done dirt cheap! (comments at that I posted DIGG which put this all into context)

Please Vote to Save 9/11 Truth Prof Kevin Barrett's Post at U of WI

Kevin Barrett has got back in the news again, and the Wisconsin TV station has put up a poll question on their website today,

at http://www.channel3000.com/news/13255407/detail.html

"Do you think Kevin Barrett should have a teaching position next fall at UW-Madison?"

Just now there were only 314 votes, with 61% saying No Way and only 33% saying Yes, definitely.
We have a chance to turn that around.

Kevin of course is the professor and 9/11 Truth Activist who has come under heavy fire from neocons in Wisconsin who are pressing hard to have him fired for his views on 9/11.

Kevin's website is www.mujca.com, the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance. He converted to Islam after marrying a Moroccan woman, and has recently taught a course on Islam at U. of Wisconsin.

There is also a great story at the above link about his upcoming trip to Morocco to "arrest a hijacker" and his challenge to debate a neocon totalitarian enemy of free speech in the Wisconsin legislature.

Robin Hordon and David Ray Griffin on Questioning War- organizing Resistance, Monday, May 7, 7-9 pm

Robin Hordon, former FAA Air Traffic Controller at the Boston Air Route Traffic Control Center, former Certified Commercial Pilot, former Certified Flight Instructor and Certified Ground Instructor has a unique insight into the events of September 11th. After leaving the FAA, he spent 12 years in the field of comedy, ending up as artistic coordinator for "Catch A Rising Star" in Cambridge, MA. He chose to support comic talent that spoke truth to power, truth to hatred, truth to racism, truth to sexism, truth to xenophobia, and truth to militarism. He currently lives in Washington state where he continues his four decades of activism on behalf of peace and justice in the world.

David Ray Griffin credits Hordon for the extraordinary amount of time, going far beyond any reasonable call of duty, in increasing our understanding of FAA air traffic control in general and the 9/11 actions of controllers at Boston Center in particular, which contributed greatly to the first chapter of his new book Debunking 9/11 Debunking- An Answer to Popular Mechanics and the Other Defenders of the Official Conspiracy Theory.

9/11 Truth Renaissance

A profound shift is taking place in consciousness and technology. Activists are hard pressed to keep up with the latest tools for video-blogging, podcasting, DVD duplication, and an array of new technologies facilitating communications between people that were geographically and economically prohibitive when I was a child. The new technologies have the potential of the printing press, photography, radio, and television to shake up the way people see the world and to shift the power structures in society. While traditional newspapers and magazines are struggling to maintain economic viability and credibility, creative new synergies are taking place in cyberspace and in the production of films and music designed to inform, enlighten, and inspire with messages thatwhich strongly challenge the mainstream media’s fabricated reality that is contrived to serve imperial corporate interests.

Why The Truth About 9/11 Is Censored By The Media

http://georgewashington.blogspot.com/2005/10/hit-them-with-truth.html

If the government's account of 9/11 is not accurate, wouldn't the media have been "all over it"? Isn't the fact that most mainstream media sources don't spend much time covering these issues show that there's nothing there?

No.

Self-Censorship by Journalists

Initially, there has been self-censorship by journalists.

Do we need a new national poll on 9/11 at this time?

A few weeks ago we had a very spirited thread on a blog about the need for a new national poll asking 9/11-related questions.

I happen to think that a new poll would be of great value. It would give us more recent numbers to present to the msm, refute their constant attempts to marginalize the 9/11 Truth movement and the polling organization's independent press release would be a "credible" msm news story and could, depending on the results, spark a firestorm of news stories and opinion pieces. A new poll, carefully crafted, would also give us quantitative data on exactly what is getting through to the general public and let us know where we should increase our focus, among other things.

411 0n 911 Demanding 9/11 Truth and impeachment

While the morning rain and the threat of rain prevented “Annie and the Vets” from providing music at the 4/11/2007 afternoon rally, a substantial crowd gathered in the last-minute sunshine on Lytton Plaza in downtown Palo Alto, amidst a giant replica of the flawed 9/11 Commission Report, two smoking towers labeled Constitution and Bill of Rights, many colorful banners calling for impeachment, and a huge “Deception Dollar” banner.

The first marches demanding a Congressional Investigation into 9/11 were held in Palo Alto in January 2002, followed by further marches in January of 2003 demanding “Pre-Emptive Impeachment.” Marches for impeachment are now a monthly occurrence and converged yesterday with a monthly 9/11 Truth action. The rally began with a bit of history and Congresswoman Eshoo’s response to the previous rally on March 14th. Eshoo wrote:

Media Matters Ignores Right Wing Attacks on Rosie O'Donnell

Another indication of media blackout on 9/11 issues:

Media Matters has failed to report on any of the recent "conservative" media's feeding frenzy on Rosie O'Donnell and their vitriolic attacks on her First Amendment rights, which include calling for her dismissal and execution. Media Matters just this week published a blog on the site defending the repulsive Ann Coulter: http://www.opednews.com/maxwrite/page.php?a=32662

With any other topic, Media Matters would have sent out press releases, blogged, and posted the information on their front page. They routinely monitor all Fox broadcasts and other Administration stenographic media personalities, calling them on misinformation, unprofessional conduct, and the like. According to their webpage:

New Movie: The Reflecting Pool

One of the biggest challenges of the 9/11 Truth Movement has been to get the basic facts about 9/11 into the mainstream media or general consciousness. People who go to see documentaries are vastly fewer in number than those who seek entertainment and distraction. Since I became an activist, only after seeing a film which disturbed me (JFK) and doing some research on the CIA, I have always thought that films are one of the best tools to raise awareness, and we have continually tried to produce better and better films- mainly documentaries. Late last night, Chris Emery, who made a film about the Oklahoma City bombing, sent me a link to a trailer for a new 9/11 film, which is not a documentary-
