The "Scholars" are Part of the Conspiracy!

David Hawkins, a computer scientist who calls himself a forensic economist, discussed previously here, has posted on the Loose Change forum a letter he wrote alleging a complicated scheme by hedge funds to profit off of the destruction of WTC7. Now by conspiracy theorist standards this is nothing unusual, Pat already discussed this months ago in the previous post, but the weird part is, he claims that "Scholar" for 9/11 "Truth" co-founder Jim Fetzer is involved in the plot, and has been removed from the organization as a result:

I put these issues of a perceived conflict of interest in possible payments by the Teachers’ private equity groups to Professor Jim Fetzer, co-founder of the Scholars for 9/11 Truth where until a few days ago I was a full member.

As a recently retired member of the Teachers’ pension fund, Mr. Fetzer became extremely defensive.When I continued to demand an explanation for his perceived conflict of interest he threw me out of the society which he had invited me to join about six months ago as a full member (see correspondence below).

Mr. Fetzer decision to remove me as a full member of S9/11T denies myself and my former fellow members opportunities to share research not just into the 9/11 murders but also the private equity frauds which appear to provide a financial motive for the murders. am now alleging that the Scholars for 9/11 Truth is not only in a perceived conflict of interest with respect to the Teachers pension fund and its private equity groups, it has in fact been hired, with Mr. Fetzer as a founder, to run and manipulate an online forum and divert public attention away from the Teachers’ pivotal role in the 9/11 frauds.

Sure enough, a check of the rolls shows that he is no longer listed.

Could the last one to leave the group please turn off the website?

Isn't one of the first things a revolution does is turn on their own? These guys are skipping right past the "revolution" part and getting straight to the "turning on each other". It's like they're in a race to see who can be more "truthier" than everyone else.

I'll bet there's some guy at home right now thinking he's the only member of the "truth" movement who isn't a counter-intelligence agent of the Gubmint.

True, for all the "1984" references they make, maybe they should all read "Animal Farm"?

Damn, it's getting to be so much that you really can't satirize some people, because their sheer stupidity will beat you to any comparison you make.

Wasn't 1984 like um, more than 20 years ago?

I mean really, its like when I went to Disney World in the late 80's. Tommorowland was rally yesterdayland. They sung the praises of "advancements" that will let women out of the kitchen! Like a oven that will cook with the power of the atom.

Its also like when any idiotic company advertises its products are "Space Age". Yeah, sure, I want 60's era technology. Great, just great.

Hawk even promotes the WTC 7 demo theory! I'm suprised you guys aren't all over that one!

is that all you have to say on this one swing?

Figures...not much you really can say about it is there.

Why, what more should we be all over? We have already addressed WTC7 on numerous occassions, and have even discussed this guys theories on it. The only thing he added with this letter is the fact that Fetzer did it.

Its actually one of the signs of a faltering movement/revolution. They start attacking each other because the other revolutionaries are the only ones they can beat.

Maybe I'm missing something, but...

Fetzer's still on the list:
"James H. Fetzer (FM)

Distinguished McKnight University Professor of Philosophy at the University of Minnesota, Duluth, a former Marine Corps officer, author or editor of more than 20 books, and co-chair of Scholars for 9/11 Truth"

You are missing something. Why would Fetzer not be on the list? It is his organization, he singlehandedly rules. David Hawkins was the one removed.

Mac what is up brother.
Yeah that is all I have to say about that. I read the entire article including the guys letter to the Justice Department and Fetzer's I also read Fetzer's response. I'm not impressed. The guy provides claims without evidence much like all of the theories about 9/11.

James-Supreme Moderator Well
it just seems hypocritical to 'spotlight' this guy when he promotes theories your opposed to only because he makes unsubstaniated claims about Fetzer and the Teacher's Fund. Sounds like a lot of wasted time to me.
Then again in the dark halls of conspiracy, this guy is probably an agent provocatuer! Muuwahahahaha

A lot of time is spent on the alpha versus beta debate but little consideration is given to another equally important but often ignored greek letter - rho or the sensitivity to changes in interest rates. Some San Diego business investors fund strategies have negative rho, that is depend on interest rates staying low. Ironically pension funds have positive rho as rising rates permit them to use a higher number to discount future liabilities. That can be a pyrrhic victory because on the asset side of the balance sheet their portfolios of stocks and bonds tend to fall in such times. It therefore makes sense for investors to diversify with OTHER strategies that tend to perform well in a RISING interest rate environment.
