A Music Video Integrating 9/11 Truth into the OWS Movement

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!" 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.

Networks Cut Police Violence Coverage

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
