Is This Man Responsible for Controlled Demolition on 9-11?

Hey, I'm just asking questions. The Troofers are all agog at the latest revelation over at Gage's Gaggle of Geese, by a guy who appears to have been a photographer for CDI, and who claims to have also placed charges in the Kingdome and other controlled demolition sites.

But note the very curious documentation he provides. A Certificate from the FDNY, dated 7/9/01, a full two months BEFORE 9-11. Note the description of his function: POWDER CARRIER. What kind of powder, hmmm? Doesn't sooper-dooper nanothermite come in powder form?

The Idiocy of David Ray Griffin

David Ray Griffin attempts to use the McChrystal controversy to focus the attention on what he thinks is important, namely, himself. There is so much wrong with this essay I could go on for hours, but I will just touch on a few points of stupidity.

If the sons and daughters of wealthy and middle-class parents were coming home in boxes, or with permanent injuries or post-traumatic stress syndrome, this war would have surely been stopped long ago.

Uhh, yeah, because nobody in the military is middle-class or anything. Does this idiot realize that John McCain, Sarah Palin and Joe Biden have children in the military?

Although the US government claimed that its military operations in Afghanistan were justified by the need to prevent a second attack, this need, even if real, was clearly not urgent, as shown by the fact that the Pentagon did not launch its invasion until almost a month later.

Bizarrely, after years of claiming that the war in Afghanistan was preplanned, now they are arguing that they took too long. Geez, Dave, maybe it had to something to do with the fact that Afghanistan is a landlocked country 8,000 miles away?

The US war in Afghanistan was not authorized by the UN Security Council in 2001 or at anytime since, so this war began as an illegal war and remains an illegal war today. Our government’s claim to the contrary is false.

Of course what this moron specifically fails to mention is the UN has its own security force in Afghanistan, ISAF, which it authorized in Security Council Resolution 1386. They don't seem to have much of a problem with the US presence.

The public has widely assumed, due to misleading claims,59 that the names of the alleged hijackers were on the flight manifests for the four flights, and also that the autopsy report from the Pentagon contained the names of the hijackers said to have been on American Flight 77. However, the passenger manifests for the four airliners did not contain the names of any of the alleged hijackers and, moreover, they contained no Arab names whatsoever.

Geez, welcome to 2002. Amazingly this whole claim based off of a list of victims on CNN's website manages to get recycled, 9 years later.

Latest From NYC-CANT

The jokers have their final week of letters to the NYC District Attorney. I do have to love this part:

Over the last three weeks you have been informed about the overwhelming evidence that World Trade Center Building 7 was demolished with explosives. I trust that you understand the serious implications of this crime and that you are resolved to prosecute the guilty parties.

And yes, speaking of set up to fail, they did fail at their new, lowered goal of 500 letters or faxes in Week 3; they came up about 279 short. Instead of increasing their numbers by 130%, they increased them by 1.5%.

Jon Gold's Idea of Evidence

Flimsy is what I'd call it. By this logic, Obama caused the mortgage crisis, so that he could get health care reform passed. If Bush wanted a casus belli against Iraq, why didn't he make the terrorists Iraqis?

The Munchkin Speaks

Barbara Honegger talks about the Troof Movement's next fiasco:

The most tangible and encouraging development of the conference was Zwicker’s revelation that Canadian and international legal experts are moving forward with what they call the “11/11 Project” for an international inquest on the mass crimes of September 11. “11/11” refers to November 11, 2011 -- one month after the projected date of the announcement of the inquest’s judgment on Sept. 11, 2011 -- “when,” Zwicker said with his signature grin and twinkle, “all of our goals will have been achieved.”

No, that doesn't add up; one month after 9-11-11 is 10-11-11, but then expecting sense out of Honegger is like expecting the truth out of Joe Isuzu And I do have to chuckle a little bit at the proposed date: 11-11-11!

Iowa Troof Group Gets Profiled

Interesting article, perhaps a shade too sympathetic to the kooks.

Michalek, a retired teacher, probation officer, truck driver, farmer and military veteran, said he lies in bed wondering how he can make people understand that, whatever happened, 9/11 cries out for further investigation.

"I wake up at 3 in the morning," he said, "asking myself: How can I better reach people? How can I change minds? For me it was easy. I knew the government lied to me about Vietnam, because I was there."

You might start with being a tad more selective in terms of the videos you distribute:

Spread out on a table was a small video library. Dave Scar, 58, of Woodward, said he's made 11,000 copies of various titles. Simply ask and ye shall receive.

Beginners, Scar said, might want to begin with "Loose Change" then work their way to "Zero: 9/11" or "911 in Plane Site" or "Blueprint for Truth" or "9/11 Mysteries."

In Plane Site? Sheesh, we get accused of only covering the disinfo if we talk about that movie. And 9-11 Mysteries, the movie that was inspired by a Holocaust Denier?

As always, the real kookery comes out in the comments.

More Details on Bruno Arrest

No surprise, it turns out there was more to the story than the WAC-jobs wanted us to know. Remember those "involuntary" facial expressions?

Bruno was making various facial expressions of displeasure at the judge and he was admonished that if he did not cease doing this then he would be asked to leave the court. Bruno acknowledged the communication from the judge but continued to show his displeasure with his facial expressions. At which time the judge repeated himself and had Bruno removed.

There were claims that he was tortured, which somehow didn't make it into the 9-11 Blogger post:

As a student of Tim Turner and UCC sovereignty teachings he refused to identify himself.
He was put into a cold room. So cold that he got hyperthermia and passed out! When he came to he was asked his name but he refused to answer. So he got the treatment two other times and then the third time he said that the name on his bracelet was Bruno. (Note, if he answers their question then he has contracted with them and is now subject to their law which does not recognize the sovereignty of the individual so this is why he was refusing to say his name)

Hey, Bruno, don't forget that if your name is in all caps on the indictment, you can have the charges thrown out! And check that flag in the courtroom for a gold fringe!

Bruno is one of the sanest, most active and effective 911 truthers out there and he needs our help.

That says less about Bruno than it does about the rest of the "Truthers".

Bruno Update

Bruno was on the Alex Jones show today to give us an update on his situation. He claims to be facing up to three years in the pokey for his antics in the courtroom. He says he's got a strong case due to all the witnesses, but Alex was not nearly as optimistic. Alex also did his usual routine about how the cops are a bunch of slavering idiots doing the will of their NWO masters. Aside from that, the segment amounted to little more than a "please send money" bit.


Speaking of Set Up to Fail

Gotta love this latest exhortation from Ted Walter on the NYC-CAN push to get the NYC District Attorney to open an investigation into the collapse of WTC-7. Remember, the prior week they got 133 letters or faxes written and sent. This week?

Thank you and congratulations! Together we finished Week 2 with 217 letters sent to the District Attorney's office.

In Week 3 let's make it our minimum goal to reach 500 letters, and in Week 4, 1000 letters! How do we do it?

My question exactly. Okay, a jump from 133 to 217 is about a 63% increase. That's pretty significant. But what would they need to get in Week 3 to reach their "minimum" goal?

Another 130% increase. And in Week 4 they would need a further 100% boost.

Bruno, The Terrorist

This is frigging hilarious:

WeAreChangeLA Organizer Faces Terrorism Charge WeAreChangeLA’s lead organizer Bruno Bruhwiler is being targeted as a terrorist threat.

How could this happen?

It all began when Bruno was sitting in the audience at a civil hearing for another WACLA member. The Judge literally did not like Bruno’s involuntary facial expressions, and ordered him out of the courtroom.

Sounds totally credible to me. Involuntary facial expressions? Make 'em all the time. And it's good that the judge didn't dislike them in some figurative sense.

Two felony resisting arrest charges were then tacked on, which means Bruno is charged with physically resisting the officers – twice? - though witnesses observed that Bruno did not ever resist the officers. The arresting supervising officer claimed that Bruno threatened to assassinate him, then the same officer ordered an underling to back up his claim as a false witness and charged Bruno with making a “terrorist” threat. After 911, legislation was passed making it very easy to charge ordinary citizens as “terrorists” for almost any reason.

And get this:

While in custody, at another location for incarceration, Bruno was asked by an officer if he was the lead organizer of WeAreChangeLA, and the officer asked with a snide tone if Bruno had a website, with other officers looking on. Either they did some quick research on him or they recognized Bruno from some other way, but they knew he was the lead organizer of WeAreChangeLA.

I'm going to guess that a bunch of WAC-jobs were calling the various police stations, giving out this very information.

Debunk This, My Aunt Petunia

This is a series that's getting a fair amount of attention from the Truthers, which goes through fluoride in the drinking water, FEMA death camps, Tim McVeigh, etc. This episode is on the 9-11 Commission and contains the usual quote mining of John Farmer, Tom Kean, Tim Roemer and others, with the predictable conclusion that "we need another investigation."

Of course, the video ignores the fact that the lies the military told to the Commission go against the most popular conspiracy theories. The military tried to claim that it knew about the hijacked planes (especially Flight 93) before it actually did. The video also ignores that the Commission discovered the lies before issuing its report, and, as John Farmer said in an interview:

John Farmer- Well, let me just say that I think the [9-11 Commission] report is, uh, extremely accurate, and- and sets forth the facts of 9/11. And we actually did point out in the report the discrepancies between the accounts that were given and what we actually found.

You won't see Change Duh Channel mining that quote anytime soon.

The Intro to Loose Change 5?

Any bets on how long before this gets worked into a conspiracy theory?

WASHINGTON — The United States has discovered nearly $1 trillion in untapped mineral deposits in Afghanistan, enough to fundamentally alter the Afghan economy and perhaps the Afghan war itself, according to senior American government officials.

The previously unknown deposits — including huge veins of iron, copper, cobalt, gold and critical industrial metals such as lithium — are so big and include so many minerals essential to modern industry that Afghanistan eventually could be transformed into one of the most important mining centers in the world, the U.S. officials believe.

OK, it took them a decade to even discover it, but the NWO is really, really patient.

Russia Today on the Srebrenica Massacre "Kangaroo Court"

OK, rather off topic, but the truthers aren't doing much of interest nowadays, and since Russia Today has become their unofficial media promoter, I thought some of you might be interested in what else they consider journalism. As someone who has spent a fair amount of time in Srebrenica I have always had a particular interest in this subject.

The Latest Word from the "Truthers"

Jon Gold's trial was put off, to much moaning. The Truthers got their wish, as an extensive new investigation of 9-11 was authorized by Congress. Well, no, but a lot of money was authorized for the 9-11 first responders, which is something we can all applaud.

That's about all. Oh, they published another peer-reviewed paper.

Just kidding.

How Paranoid?

Jon Gold, on his upcoming trial for the heinous and no doubt capital crime of crossing a police line gives us this breathless update:

My personal psyop is threatening to show up to this. Why is it most of my "enemies" are those who claim to fight for truth, accountability and justice for the 9/11 attacks (even though they don't)? I bet this has something to do with it.

Well, Jon, first of all I'm disappointed to hear that I'm not your personal psy-op. Crap, who have we got on you? Oh, her? But she's one of the--forget I said that.

Not to fear, someone's going to be there to protect Jon:

I'll be there with video camera- HQ wants me to keep an eye on Jon Gold

Yes, and then be sure to pull that black button that makes sure you get the best shot at him. Errr, I mean, of him, of course.

I mean, seriously. Does anybody really think that Jon Gold is somehow a dangerous individual? If you buy the Troofers' theories for a moment, who is most dangerous to the "official story"? Generally, Griffin, (Steven and Alex) Jones and Gage, I would say, with arguments to be made by Avery, Fetzer, Sofia, Hufschmid, Meyssan and Meserlian. But on any sane scale Gold is way down on the totem pole. Of course, to the paranoid that is precisely the problem; they are not prominent enough to garner attention if they are murdered but they are prominent enough that their deaths would silence others, nay, have silenced others.



That's how many people sent in letters/faxes to the NYC District Attorney requesting an investigation of WTC-7, per the request from NYC-CAN. One hundred and thirty-three. I mean, let's put that in perspective. NYC-CAN claimed to have gathered 30,000 or so signatures for their ballot initiative, right? Not really quite enough to qualify for the ballot, but close.

This is 1/226th of that. And it gets worse, much worse, because that's an unfair comparison; nothing in the NYC-CAN current push says you have to live in the Big Apple.

Following on the heels of last week's idiotic attempt to get the DA to look at some videos of WTC-7's collapse, this week the Troofers are highlighting the supposed "countdowns" and "foreknowledge" as lines of investigation, featuring, no kidding, Kevin McPadden and Indira Singh.

“And, at the last few seconds, he took his hand off [the radio] and you heard “3-2-1”, and he was just saying, ‘Just run for your life, just run for your life.’ And then it was like another two, three seconds, you heard explosions. Like BA-BOOOOOM! And it’s like a distinct sound…BA-BOOOOOM! And you felt a rumble in the ground, like, almost like you wanted to grab onto something. That, to me, I knew that was an explosion. There was no doubt in my mind.”[Underlining emphasis added.]

There was no mind in Kevin's mind as well, as many people were standing where Kevin claims to have been standing and none of them had to run for their lives.

They do bring up several firefighter quotes that I have highlighted in the past, but it's the typical retarded Troofer interpretation:

Note: Prior to the destruction of Building 7, no steel-frame high rise had ever succumbed to fire. Afterwards, the NY Times would report, “Engineers and other experts…were for weeks still stunned by what happened with 7 World Trade Center…‘We know what happened at 1 and 2, but why did 7 come down?’”[v] In May 2002, eight months later, FEMA would say, “The specifics of the fires in WTC 7 and how they caused the building to collapse remain unknown at this time…[T]he best hypothesis has only a low probability of occurrence.” [vi] Given 1) the lack of precedent for fire-induced collapse of steel-frame high rises, 2) the “low probability of occurrence” of a fire-induced collapse, and 3) the engineering community’s inability to explain Building 7’s destruction after it happened, we must ask how officials at the scene were able to predict Building 7’s destruction with such certainty and precision several hours in advance.

• Michael Currid, FDNY (his account takes place before noon, approximately 5.5 hours prior to Building 7’s destruction): [vii]

“Someone from the Office of Emergency Management told us that this building was in serious danger of collapse. The consensus was that it was basically a lost cause and we should not lose anyone else trying to save it. Rich, a few other people and I went inside to the stairwells and started yelling up, ‘Drop everything and get out!’”

• Peter Hayden, Deputy Chief, FDNY:[viii]

““We had our special operations people set up surveying instruments to monitor, and see if there was any movement of [WTC 7]. We were concerned of the possibility of collapse of the building. And we had a discussion with one particular engineer there, and we asked him, if we allowed it to burn could we anticipate a collapse, and if so, how soon?... And it turned out that he was pretty much right on the money, that he said, ‘In its current state, you have about five hours.’”

Uncle Fetzer Joins the Anti-Zionists

Discussed at an education forum:

Lifton seems to be upset that I have endorsed a book, STRANGER THAN FICTION, which traces the history of Zionism from the late 1800s to the present day and advances evidence, not only of the history of terrorism practiced by those who wanted to create the State of Israel, but of Israeli involvement in the events of 9/11. I had independently concluded Israel was involved in 9/11 before I discovered this book. I must admit that I had no clear concept of Zionism until relatively recently, when I began inviting experts on the subject onto my radio program, "The Real Deal", including Stephen Lendman (13 March 2010), Barry Chamish (30 March 2010), and Elias Davidsson (10 July 2010). I found the book to be extremely compact, insightful, and illuminating, and read 6-8 chapters on the air STRANGER THAN FICTION (26 April 2010). I interviewed the author, Albert Pastore, Ph.D., which is a pseudonym, on Friday, 28 May 2010, and had it rebroadcast Monday, 31 May 2010, which was Memorial Day. All of these programs either are or will be archived on

You can read the book Fetzer recommends online here. It's a presentation of the usual anti-semitic trash that gets wheeled out by the 9-11 Troofers: the dancing Jews, Odigo warnings, Zim American Shipping, etc., with a historical section on the Lavon Affair, the USS Liberty, the King David Hotel, etc. The author relies on anti-semites like Henry Ford and Charles Lindbergh for quotes.

Fetzer also recommends Rediscover 9-11, a site dedicated to Israel-bashing.

Spammers for 9/11 Truth

Because if there is anything that New York City lawyers like, it is being repeatedly harassed.

Dear AE911Truth Supporters:

Help NYC CAN show the Manhattan District Attorney just how widespread the desire for a new investigation is. To bring Building 7 fully to the attention of the District Attorney, the goal is to flood the DA’s office with 1,000 letters and faxes per week. The good thing is:

Send just one letter per week in June!

At the beginning of each week, NYC CANwill report how many letters and faxes were sent the previous week! This way we all get to know whether or not we reached our goal. If you are not already signed up at NYCCAN you can sign on now in order to receive these templates each week. It’s free!

This is how it’s going to work:

• At the beginning of each week NYC CAN will send out a template of the letter. Feel free to edit the letter to make it your own, but please be sure to stick to what the letter is saying. The template is available below.

• Copy/paste the letter, edit it as you see fit, and mail or fax it to the District Attorney’s office. We are asking you to mail or fax your letter because the District Attorney’s office asks for complaints to be written.

This Will Surely Get Me Booted from the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy

But I love this post by Will Bunch at Media Matters about Rand Paul appearing on Russia Today, or, as I call it, KookTV.

Where is Russia Today getting its wacky ideas about America and 9/11? It could be from a U.S. commentator that it frequently invites on the air to explain what's happening here -- radio's conspiracy-theorist-in-chief, who makes even Glenn Beck look sane, and that would be Austin-based Alex Jones. You can see some of Jones' TV commentaries for Russia Today here and here and here and here and here, promoting his "Obama Deception" documentary that claims that "America has become a puppet in the hands of private bankers working towards a new world order."

Yep, if you appear on Russia Today, you're pretty much an anti-American nutbar. Particularly revealing is the fact that Rand chose that outlet rather than a teeny, tiny American news program called Meet the Press.

You know how it is. I like the article for the way it bashes the Truthers; I am sure that plenty of conservatives will hate it for the way it bashes Rand Paul. But this is a well-deserved bashing. Any candidate that appears on Russia Today needs to understand that they're appearing on KookTV. It's hilariously "Truther-friendly", features nincompoops like Alex Jones, Luke Rudkowski and Max Keiser, and other so-called "Patriots" who appear to think that the best indication of their loyalty to their country is to get on Russian TV and bash it.
