9-11 Denial Candidates

Here's a list, courtesy of 9-11 Blogger:

Carol Brouillet, Grn, CA, House Dst 14

FBI 9/11 Whistleblower Coleen Rowley, Dem, MN House Dst 2: www.coleenrowley.com

[As of Oct 16th, Rowley trailed her opponent by 50% to 42%]

Howie Hawkins, Grn, NY, Senate

Dr. Bob Bowman, Dem, FL, House Dst 15

David Nolan, Lib, AZ, House Dt 8

Samm Simpson, Dem, FL, House Dst 10

Bob Fitrakis, Ind, OH, Governor

Dennis Morrisseau, Ind, VT, House

Craig Hill, Green, VT, Senate

Donna Mancini, Lib, KY, House Dst 3

Michael Metti, Lib, CA, Senate

Matt Woodson, OK, House Dst 5

Brian Moore, Indep, FL, Senate

Peter White, Indep, MA, House Dst 10

Bruce Marshall, Green, VT House

I think Rowley is just "adopted" by the Deniers. Brouillet, Woodson, Bowman and Simpson of course are thorough nutters. Anybody care to guess in (very) round numbers the seat count that 9-11 Denial has after this election?

I perused Rowley's website and saw no evidence she is in the camp of the Denier Goons. In fact this excerpt would contradict one of the most common Denier assertions about Flight 93.


"[Rowley supporter] Alice Hoglan's son, Mark Bingham, has been recognized as an American hero and one of the passengers who stormed the cockpit of United Flight 93 before it crashed into a Pennsylvania field."

So the fact that the "movement" is claiming her as one its own is curious. Do they know something Rowley isn't putting on her website.

Neither Samm Simpson nor dipshit Bob Bowman are given any chance of winning by the NY Times.

Bowman is an upfront about his moronic views but looking at Simpson's website, I see no references to 9/11 Denial. Maybe this movement is so desperate, it is inventing "friends".

The plethora of Green and Libertarian Party candidates is unfortunate. Both those parties have worthwhile views to offer occasionally but they'll never be anything more than nuisances if the cling to this crap.

I live near Bob Bowman's district. It's overwhelmingly Republican, and his opponent has spent way more money per opensecrets.org. I don't think I've seen so much as a TV ad for either candidate.

I guess if any of their 'candidates' lose, then it's a government conspiracy also.

I have invited Mark Roberts to appear on 'Hardfire' for two shows (to be taped in December) and he has accepted. I will attempt to find a suitable opponent for him, but I'm guessing that the loons will not exactly be lining up for the opportunity to be ripped, pummeled, and smashed.
Years ago, William F. Buckley was asked why Bobby Kennedy always avoided appearing on 'Firing Line.' Buckley replied, "Why does bologna reject the grinder?"

I'll keep everyone posted on the response of the tinfoil-hat brigade to my offer providing them with a platform for sharing their sacred "truths" with the rest of us.

Ask Fetzer or Dylan to take on Mark Roberts.

chf, I have invited Fetzer and I await his response. Assuming he declines (that would be the way to bet), do you really think a dumb little shit like Avery could survive an hour's exposure to Mark, a person so vastly superior in intellect and character? My next choice will, I think, be Jim Hoffman, who has already run out on us.

I doubt that Fetzer will decline. The man has a huge ego and it seems to me that he is totally unaware of his own shortcomings. His main tactic in debate is to to switch subject as soon as he's getting nailed on one particular topic.

Bill O'Reilly thrashed Fetzer!

Mark Roberts will rip the old fart limb from limb.

(Fetzer) has a huge ego and it seems to me that he is totally unaware of his own shortcomings.

He's also totally unaware of when he's being led to the slaughterhouse. I bet he accepts, and spends all the time between now and then hyping it as "positive media coverage."

oh please, if Fetzer accepts, I want a copy of this debate. I will bronze it and put it on my mantle.

BTW, here's why CQPolitics.com has to say about the probability of each candidate winning.

Brouillet, Hawkins, Nolan, Fitrakis, Mancini, Metti, Woodson, Moore, and White are all third-party or independent candidates, which makes them a longshot under any circumstances. Many of these are running in districts that are rated "Safe" by Congressional Quarterly, meaning that even a second-party candidate would be a huge underdog.

Bowman and Simpson are Democratic candidates, running in districts that are "Safe Republican." Which means they get to finish second in a one-horse race instead of third.

Rowley's district is listed as "Republican Favored", meaning "a strong lead and appears likely to win, but an upset cannot be completely ruled out." While still a longshot, this is probably the Deniers' best hope. If Rowley really is a Denier, as Consdemo suggests.

That leaves three third-party or independent Vermont candidates: Morrisseau (House), Marshall (House), and Hill (Senate).

Bennie Sanders, an Independent frequently aligned with the Democrats, is expected to move from the House to the Senate, and is "Favored" to win that race. The Dems and GOP have each nominated a candidate for Vermont's vacant House seat. It is listed as "Leans Democratic." I think it is safe to say that a victory by any of these three Deniers would be a major upset.

Clarification: Rowley is Democratic candidate in a "Republican Favored" district.

Triterope, Sorry for the confusion. I said Rowley's website gives no indication she is a Denier. I just wonder why they are claiming she is one.

I said:

If Rowley really is a Denier, as Consdemo suggests.

Sorry Consdemo, I worded that sentence poorly. I was trying to say, "Consdemo raises questions as to whether or not Rowley really is a denier." My phrasing made it look like you taking the position that she was one. Apologies for the mix-up.
