Surviving a financial panic -- lessons from the past
October 13, 2008
Financial panics used to be quite ordinary. In the century or two prior to the great depression, there was a panic every 15 or 20 years. Since the great depression we haven't had a classic financial panic, until now. There's a thing or two that we can learn from panics past to help us survive the current one.
To begin with, there's a reason why we haven't had financial panics for the past 75 years--fiat currency.
Panics and gold
Panics used to begin when people decided to get their hands on actual, physical gold. That could happen for a lot of different reasons. Often it was because there had been inflation--banks issuing bank notes far in excess of the gold they had on deposit--and people decided that they didn't trust their bank. Sometimes, though, it happened without any particular malpractice by the banks, simply because there was a demand for gold someplace else--an economic boom in Europe or South America could drain gold from the United States or vice versa.

Report: Richard Gage in Belgium
November 17, 2008
Personally, I would have loved to have a larger audience, but the attendance of 165, including quite a few architects and engineers, I’m not complaining. Not surprisingly, the mainstream media excelled in not showing up.
Richard Gage’s lecture was supported with a very illustrative PowerPoint presentation, filled with revealing video material and a series of very convincing scientific explanations.
At the onset of his presentation, Gage took a poll, wondering how many people still believed in the official version of the events as portrayed by the US governement. About 20 hands went up. To the question how many people had doubts, a lot more hands went skyward.
When asked how many were convinced the destruction of the three buildings was due to 'explosive controlled demolition', the majority of the hands went up, proving we were dealing with an already pretty well informed audience.

9/11 Speakers hit Mainstream Media
November 17, 2008
In the last couple of weeks, two of our well-known speakers have been broadcast on mainstream media. Thanks to both of you for your ongoing persistence!
Richard Gage, who has been presenting AE911Truth.org to Europeans, was on national television in Spain. We received this note from Diana Castillo:
Thanks to Richard Gage's conference here in Madrid's Colegio Oficial de Arquitectura, on Nov 7th, this is the first time that 911 truth has been shown on mainstream media here in Spain. The conference was packed and the Colegio, which is the official "Guild" for architects here in Spain, has requested several copies of the video conference. This is the recording of the news item shown at midday on the 8th of November which was seen nation wide, with English subtitles: Google Video.You can see details of the rest of Gage's European Tour at AE911Truth.org, here.
David Ray Griffin was interviewed by Jan Mickelson, of WHO-AM radio in Des Moines. Bravo to James Hufferd, Adel, IA 911truth group leader, who facilitated this opportunity. Listen to the podcast here: mickelson.libsyn.com (direct download here)

Veterans Occupy National Archives - AGAIN!
FINAL UPDATE: Video from ustream.tv below. BRAVO VFP, IVAW, MFSO... We are so proud of you for standing up, again!
UPDATE: Police removed these patriots today from the Building. Imagine if our police put the Constitution first . . . !
Tentative information: Live Broadcast Today 2pm Eastern at ustream.tv. We'll update as soon as this is confirmed. It was scheduled for yesterday, but technical difficulties prevented the broadcast.
November 15, 2008
On Saturday, November 15, at 8:00 am, at the National Archives Building on Connecticut Ave., eight military veterans and a military mother climbed a 9-foot retaining fence and occupied a ninety-foot high scaffolding to raise two 450 square foot banners stating, "DEFEND OUR CONSTITUTION. ARREST BUSH AND CHENEY: WAR CRIMINALS!" and "WE WILL NOT BE SILENT." The same message will also be displayed at demonstrations in the Los Angeles area on Saturday.
Members of Veterans for Peace (VFP) chose the Archives for their nonviolent protest because it is symbolic of their military oath to "defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic." In September they occupied the Archives for 24 hours, and plan to stay longer this time.

Richard Gage, AIA, AE911truth.org in Paris
From Arno Mansouri in Paris, where Richard Gage, AIA spoke on Thursday night, November 13, 2008
There were 242 people attending the presentation (which was slightly above the number of seats of the venue) on Thursday the 13th of November: a full house indeed !
We actually had to refuse some people even though we did put a notice on our
site stating that it was fully booked, and asking people NOT to come if they
had not made reservations already -- do note that we probably could have had
about twice as many people if we have had the adequate hall (we had to settle
for this movie house, a larger venue was way too much money for our finances,
unfortunately) and therefore, we had to cease advertising the presentation a
few days before it was held...

This is a memoir of sorts, the kind that many of us in America are telling days after the election of Barack Obama, who is soon, we all hope soon enough, to be the 44th president of the United States of America. We're not used to this of late, this being the emergence of our stories, our narratives, each one jubilant, provoked to the page and the air waves by our tears, for many of us our tears of joy and relief, tears of disbelief. We, many of us, have awakened from a nightmare. And that nightmare, for each of us, is different.

9/11 Film at Chicago Film Festival
Festival is serious about Poland's booming cinema
Of the city's festivals with a national focus, the Polish Film Festival in America might be the most serious about cinema. Just look at the credits for the 76 features, documentaries and shorts in this year's online schedule. For the cinephile, this 20-year-old event not only lists the director of each film, but also names the screenwriter, cinematographer, editor, art director and composer.
"The Polish film industry is blossoming right now," says Christopher Kamyszew, the festival's founder and honorary chairman. "More films are being produced and more have the ambition to do well in the local movie theater in Poland." That translates into more comedies. Kamyszew is bringing over "Lejdis," Poland's hit comedy of the year.

Attorney General contender carries 9/11 related baggage
If you agree 9/11 commission member and long-time coverup professional, Jamie Gorelick, should not be nominated to be Attorney General under the Obama Administration, please DIGG this article and send the synopsis and a link to President-elect Obama at Change.gov.
Monday's New York Times reported that former Deputy A.G. and 9/11 Commissioner Jamie Gorelick was a candidate for Attorney General in the new Obama Administration. Five-time Emmy winning investigative reporter Peter Lance details a shocking, but little known story about Gorelick involving the loss of a key al Qaeda operative. This is an excerpt from his 2006 HarperCollins book TRIPLE CROSS soon to be published in trade paperback.

Bush Spy Revelations Anticipated When Obama Is Sworn In
Privacy Advocates Expect Whistleblowers to Share Warrantless Wiretap Info After Inauguration Day
By RYAN SINGEL
When Barack Obama takes the oath of office on January 20, Americans won't just get a new president; they might finally learn the full extent of George W. Bush's warrantless domestic wiretapping.
Since The New York Times first revealed in 2005 that the NSA was eavesdropping on citizens' overseas phone calls and e-mail, few additional details about the massive "Terrorist Surveillance Program" have emerged. That's because the Bush administration has stonewalled, misled and denied documents to Congress, and subpoenaed the phone records of the investigative reporters.

Statement on the election of Barack Obama as it regards the 9/11 Truth Movement
From Donna Marsh O'Connor
The good news: Barack Obama seems to be a decent man, tough enough to steer this nation in the left direction, confident enough to know he will succeed, smart enough to know that the powerful right still has the means to inflict great pain and re-enter greater and stronger. His election has elated many, particularly me, for a whole host of reasons, but for our purposes the following two:

Reflections and Hope on Veterans Day
While it is fitting that our nation reserves a special day to honor the sacrifice and commitment of our warriors, it also serves to highlight how we, as a country, have fallen short of caring for our veterans, reintegrating them back into our communities, and demanding that our military be used responsibly and only as a last resort. Over 1.7 million men and women of the U.S. military have served in Iraq and Afghanistan, and many of them now struggle to cope with physical and emotional injuries, with family relationships strained because of prolonged separation, and with finding employment during an economic recession.
Members of Iraq Veterans Against the War know that in order to truly honor our veterans, we must listen to them, not just on Veterans Day, but on the other 364 days as well. It is for each other, our military brothers and sisters, and for our country that IVAW works every day to share our experiences, to challenge the predominant narrative of war as heroic and glorious, and to expose people to the brutal reality and true human costs of modern warfare.

On Veterans Day, Body of War, the documentary about IVAW member Tomas Young who was paralyzed by a bullet to his spine after serving in Iraq for less than a week, will be shown at 7pm ET on the Sundance Channel. There's no better way to mark Veterans Day than by listening to veterans, and watching this film is just one of many ways you can listen.
Winter Soldier: Iraq & Afghanistan: Another way you can honor our veterans today is by listening to the Winter Soldier Hearings. Read more ...

9/11: More than meets the eye
Discussion of the very real doubts over the World Trade Center attacks was conspicuously absent from the US presidential race. But America's international image will always be tainted as long as the uncertainty remains
by Richard Falk, United Nations Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in the Palestinian Territories
Every so often attention is called anew to the doubts surrounding the true character of the events surrounding the 9/11 attacks. Recently, the report of the collapse of Building 7 represented such an occasion. Any close student of 9/11 is aware of the many serious discrepancies between the official version of what took place and the actual happenings on that fateful day in 2001. David Ray Griffin and others have analyzed and assessed these discrepancies in such an objective and compelling fashion that only wilful ignorance can maintain that the 9/11 narrative should be treated as a closed book, and that the public should move on to address the problems of the day.
