David Ray Griffin Comes Up With a Brilliant Way to Dupe People Into Buying His New Book

Gotta hand it to him, this is a real con artist at work:

Not make it obvious, by means of the title, the cover, or the table of contents--that this is ultimately a 9-11 truth book.
However, you can see the fly rapidly heading towards the ointment in this following sentence:

The hope is that some people, not being aware of my notoriety, read enough of the first part of the book to see that I am not an idiot.
The book sounds like a real stomach--err, page-turner, from the title: Bush and Cheney: How They Ruined America and the World.  Suck 'em in with the Bush-bashing, and then switch to the 9-11 nuttery once you've got them all in a lather.  BTW, I suspect that even the Bush-haters will have problems with this part:

... American and the world are headed towards ruination because of the policies of the Bush-Cheney Administration--as continued in most cases by the Obama Administration...
 Gee, wonder why it's not the Obama-Biden administration?  Maybe because nobody thinks of Biden as the evil genius pulling the strings of the Obama puppet?

Jill Stein Goes for the Crackpot Vote

With a call for a new 9-11 investigation, which contains the usual BS talking points:

The families and friends of those who were murdered on 9/11 deserve justice. They also deserve to know the truth.
Led by the families of those who died on 9/11, the American people wanted—and deserved—a comprehensive and independent inquiry into the attacks. The Bush administration initially said an inquiry was unnecessary, claiming that the perpetrators had been identified and their methods and motives were clear.
It is well known that the 9/11 Commission produced a report containing so many omissions and distortions that Harper's Magazine described it as "whitewash as public service"—a document that "defrauds the nation." The co-chairs of the 9/11 Commission wrote a book just two years after the final commission report, saying, "We were set up to fail." The 9/11 Commission was not given enough money, time, or access to relevant classified information.
The usual misreading of what Kean and Hamilton really said:

"Both of us were aware of grumbling around Washington that the 9/11 Commission was doomed--if not designed--to fail: the commission would splinter down partisan lines; lose its credibility by leaking classified information; be denied the necessary access to do its job; or alienate the 9/11 families who had fought on behalf of its creation. What we could not have anticipated were the remarkable people and circumstances that would coalesce within and around the 9/11 Commission over the coming twenty months to enable our success."
From what I have seen, the Rebunkers seem to be on Trump's side; probably because he's been friendly with Alex Jones.  I suspect that this will help Stein get Jon Gold's support.
