Blair Gadsby went to the doctor on this day of his hunger strike for 911 Truth.
11 days with out food and the doctor gave him a clean bill of health! Blair
is committed to seeing this thing through and will not compromise his request
of two hours of McCains time. Good weather permitting a plane is scheduled to
toe a 35 foot banner on friday between 5pm and 7pm, a rally of the movement
here in Phoenix has been set for that time in front of McCain’s office. The
banner will read “Google Hunger Strike for 911 Truth” the plane will
be over McCains office around 5pm for 15 to 20 minutes and then fly all over
the valley. With the plane in the air now would be a good time to call local
Radio and TV stations! Are you as hungry as we are?
Hungry for Truth — Day 10
The good news is just that, NEWS Coverage! Seeing a hard copy of the paper
this morning gave Blair a big boost of energy. KTVK Channel 3 sent out a camera
man this morning and interviewed Blair. Shortly after noon two McCain Staff
Members came out to the curb and offered to sit down with Blair, Gage and Jones
and allow them to present our side of the story to McCain’s staff, Blair stood
his ground and once again stated that he must have a two hour sit down with
McCain and allow media to be present.
Day 9 of Blair Gadsby’s Hunger Strike for 9/11 Truth brought two radio interviews
and a phone interview from The Arizona Republic. Blair responded to
Senator McCain’s letter and Senator Karen Johnson issued her own written request
to Sen. McCain urging him to meet with Blair, and both Blair and Senator Johnson
were interviewed by Jack Blood on GCN radio network. It seems as though Blair
has cracked the veil of silence from the MSM as his 9/11 concerns will be stated
in a nArizona Republic newspaper article. Your constant calls, email and faxes
to the MSM are working (please see Media Alert below, to take action right now).
Now is not the time to slow down or scale back our efforts. Your actions are
empowering Blair and he feels it’s because of your efforts that this hunger
strike is receiving so much attention. It’s time to push back. Could the summer
of truth bring a crashing blow to the biggest cover-up of our time? -Tim King

Media Alert — Call to Action.
Your Phone Calls and email are working! Hunger Strike activist Blair Gadsby
has finally broke in to the main stream media. Tuesday evening Blair was interview
by the Arizona Republic for an article that should come out Wednesday morning.
Rumor has it that the NBC affiliate in Phoenix reported on Karen Johnson’s request
to senator McCain’s office on the 10 o’clock news… Continue reading
Day 8 of Blair Gadsby’s hunger strike for 9/11 Truth was met with opposition
and a written response from the office of U.S. Senator John McCain. Blair was
approached by the property manager at McCain’s office and a Phoenix police officer
and was told to remove his signs, stating that he was on private property. Numerous
signs and banners have been surrounding Blair during his hunger strike to add
to the visual affect. Wanting to comply with the law we had no choice but to
remove the signs and now he has only what he can physically hold. Later in the
day Blair made yet another visit inside the office to hand deliver a request
to meet with Senator McCain. At this moment Blair was handed a written response
to his request that stated the Senator’s schedule would not permit him to meet
with Blair at this time. (McCain’s response is below.) Notice the date on the
letter–May 30th!! They let Blair sit outside, in 100 plus degree weather, on
a hunger strike while that letter sat on someone’s desk inside the office all
Blair is preparing a response to deliver to the office of John McCain.
Stay tuned for an interview with Blair on GCN’s Dead Line Live with Jack Blood
today or Wednesday.
Thanks to everyone supporting this action and sending Blair their thoughts
and well wishes. -Tim King
This week Visibility 9-11 welcomes Blair Gadsby who is now in day 8 of his Hungry
for Truth… Continue reading
AZ Senator Karen Johnson: “Blair has a lot of courage and I’m hoping that what he does here will be very effective and that it will bring the attention to Senator McCain that is needed, so that he will take another look at this and really understand that there are a lot more questions than answers out there. and that The folks that lost their loved ones in this horrible tragedy deserve to have answers. That’s what we need to do, is find these answers for them.”
Hungry for Truth – Day 7
Braving temperatures reaching 104 degrees and denying himself food, one man’s epic struggle to find the truth about 9/11 has resulted in a outpouring of support across the United States and around the world. Blair Gadsby has completed day 7 of his first ever Hunger Strike for 9/11 truth. In seven days Gadsby has been interviewed six times by the alternative media while being largely ignored by the MSM. No surprise there. On day seven a large rally was held to cheer Blair on as he enters week two. Fifty plus people showed up at various times throughout the evening to give Blair their support. During an internet radio interview conducted by Cosmos of truthaction.org, Blair received a call from Sydney, Australia. This proves that news of Blair’s hunger strike is circling the globe and hopefully his efforts will inspire others to stand up and demand a new investigation. Blair also received well wishes and a… Continue reading

Although I was not able to be present at the rally either in person or by telephone,
I wanted to express my strong support for the NYC
9/11 Ballot Initiative.
There has never been a better time to get such an initiative on the ballot, because
the 9/11 Truth Movement’s case against the official account of 9/11 is now extremely
strong—much stronger than it was just two years ago.
For example, new evidence has been brought forth to show that the official account
of the destruction of the Twin Towers and WTC 7 cannot possibly be true. The NIST
Report has been shown to be completely inadequate, and a former employee of NIST
has spoken out to verify what we already suspected—that NIST has become totally
politicized, so that its scientists are little more than “hired guns.”
Besides the fact that the NIST Report has been discredited, so has The 9/11
Commission Report. Philip Shenon’s book has made public what we in the movement
have long known, that the 9/11 Commission was controlled by a man, Philip Zelikow,
who represented the Bush-Cheney White House. Shenon even shows that Zelikow had
outlined the whole report before the Commission’s staff had begun its work.
Moreover, some central pillars of the official account have been demolished by
the FBI. It has said it has no hard evidence that Osama bin Laden was responsible
for the attacks, that there were no cell phone calls from passengers… Continue reading
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Phoenix 9/11 Truth Activist to Start Hunger Strike at McCain’s Office: Memorial Day, 5:00PM, May 26, 2008 at the office of Senator John McCain, 5353 N. 16th St., Phoenix, AZ
Contact: Tim King Office: 480.329.9090, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Phoenix, AZ, May 21, 2008 – In an effort to bring national attention to the 9/11 truth issue, Phoenix activist, Blair Gadsby, a professor of Religious Studies, plans to start a hunger strike on Memorial Day, at the Phoenix office of Senator John McCain. Gadsby is putting the spotlight on McCain because of McCain’s avowed support for the official account of 9/11. McCain is the author of the foreword to the 2006 Popular Mechanics book, Debunking 9/11 Myths: Why Conspiracy Theories Can’t Stand Up to the Facts.
Gadsby, an Arizonan who is represented by McCain, stated for the record, “I believe Mr. McCain is a man of deep integrity. He has stood up to corporate influence in campaigns and to the very powerful Military Industrial Complex in the past, and he has a record of being a maverick. That’s why I’ve chosen to offer him this opportunity to face the issues head-on publicly. He may be one of the very, very few who have the integrity and stature to keep the military loyal and find the broad-based political support to bring about a change in our great country. But today, he is in a perilous position. By writing the Foreword to the official cover-up story, he has sided with the… Continue reading
This story has now been updated with new information from Symposium organizers.
The New England 9/11 Symposium, held this past Saturday (5/17/08) in Keene, NH, was a tremendous success. We had a great turn out and received local and, of course, independent media coverage.
First, the morning began at 9:45 a.m. with Bob McIlvaine’s heartfelt speech, which is a reminder that, as Jon Gold put it, what we feel is nothing compared to what family members like McIlvaine feel. The part of his remarks that stuck out to me the most was when McIlvaine detailed his experiences researching 9/11 on his own and described his utter disgust with the 9/11 Commission. While speaking about the Commission he mentioned the day that Condoleeza Rice testified about the August 6th, 2001 PDB. To him it was obvious that Rice was spinning, lying, and not directly answering any questions posed to her by the Commissioners, who’s questions were light as it was. He talked of how outraged he was when, after Rice testified, family members were rushing to shake her hand. The deception was so blatant how could the others not see it? I, as well as many others, believe that Bob is very strong and very brave.
Next up was acclaimed Canadian media critic and author, Barrie Zwicker. Zwicker offered his excellent take on the media’s unwillingness to cover this issue. I had seen his presentation before in 2006 but it was watching Zwicker take the editor of The Keene Sentinel (a… Continue reading
Today, Friday, May 16th, 2008, Richard Gage, AIA, will conduct a forum that
is open to the public, at MIT, in Room 54-100, starting at 7pm.

Following is Richard Gage’s invitation:
ARCHITECTS & ENGINEERS FOR 9/11 TRUTH
Richard Gage, AIA, Architect
May 12, 2008
Dear Honored Citizen(s):
You are invited to attend a forum at MIT concerning the Collapse of the 3 World
Trade Center high-rises on 9/11.
I am the founder of the organization Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth
which is a fast-growing collaboration of more than 350 architectural and engineering
professionals. The last few years have witnessed the emergence of mounting scientific
evidence that the collapses of the Twin Towers and WTC Building 7 were not adequately
explained by the official theories outlined in the 2002 FEMA and 2005 NIST reports.
The Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth call for a new, fully funded unimpeachable
Congressional investigation with subpoena power.
We are dedicated to presenting the evidence that supports our call in this
What the Evidence Shows
Sounds of explosions coming from each of the WTC Twin Towers were heard well
before the collapses began. These were reported by over 118 first responders
in the FDNY recorded “oral histories” (the release of which was
resisted by the City of NY until forced by a New York Times FOIA filing).Numerous
accounts of “flashes of light” which commonly accompany the detonation
of demolition charges were also reported. Video footage… Continue reading

Continuing the 9/11 conversation.
Mike Malloy dedicated the second hour of his program to an intervew with David Ray Griffin. A wide-ranging talk about 911.
(If you support what Malloy is doing, consider becoming a NovaM Founder if you can afford it.)
We have one of our rare guests on tonight’s program. Philosopher/theologian Dr. David Ray Griffin will join us for a discussion of the events prior to the bombings and terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
Those familiar with the 9/11 Truth Movement are well acquainted with Dr. Griffin and his points of view regarding those horrific acts against the people of the United States. As reported at wikipedia.com:
Following the September 11, 2001 attacks, David Ray Griffin moved his focus from questions of philosophy and religion to ones of politics and history, specifically “American expansionism and imperialism”. He intended to write a book on the subject, presenting 9/11 in terms of “blowback” for aggressive United States foreign policies of the 20th century: “Until the spring of 2003, I had not looked at any of the evidence. I was vaguely aware there were people, at least on the Internet, who were offering evidence against the official account of 9/11… I knew the US government had ‘fabricated’ evidence to go to war several times before. Nevertheless… I did not take this possibility seriously… I was so confident that they must be wrong.”
After reading the work of Paul… Continue reading
Canada’s 9/11 Truth Movement is peaceful, united, and committed to getting
a Canadian independent investigation into 9/11. From coast to coast, 9/11 Truth
Groups from St. John’s, Newfoundland to Victoria, British Columbia have
realized that their strengths lie in their numbers of a united front, and united
they will be on September 11th, 2008.
Over the last couple months, the Canadians have been busy. First, the Vancouver
9/11 Truth Society took the initiative to mail a copy of Yukihisa Fujita’s
Parliamentary Presentation to all 308 Members of the Canadian Parliament. Since
then, 9/11 Truth activists across the country have been pressing their MP’s
by asking if they have received the video, taken the time to watch it, and ask
them their stance on 9/11. Shortly after, East Vancouver MP Libby Davies has
since agreed to take a petition to the Canadian Parliament requesting a Canadian
Investigation into 9/11 — and this is just the beginning. Currently, 10
cities in Canada have joined forces and are creating their first ever (and if
successful, the last) national campaign for 9/11 Truth…
As signatures are being collected from Canadians across the country, the authors
of the petition are working with MP Davies in getting the timing right for introducing
it into Parliament. The plan is to introduce the petition around August 1st,
2008, as Canada officially allows up to 45 days for answering any petition.
An August 1st submission will allow an answer forthcoming by September 11th,
In preparation of receiving an… Continue reading

Letter published at 911blogger.com
Finally! After submitting a half-dozen papers to established peer-reviewed technical journals over a period of nearly a year, we have two papers which have passed peer-review and have been accepted for publication. One of these was published TODAY! In science, we say that we have “published in the literature,” a major step in a nascent line of scientific inquiry.
And many thanks to the editors for their courage and adherence to science in allowing us to follow the evidence and publish in their journal. (Indeed, expressions of thanks along these lines to the editors will be appreciated, as they will probably get a few letters chastising them… )
The paper is here:
http://www.bentham.org/open/index.htm (our paper is listed on top at the moment, the most recently entered paper); or go here:
(Click on “year 2008” then scroll down to the paper and click on it.)
Yes, it is available on-line FOR FREE, since this is an “open e-journal.” TOCEJ = The Open Civil Engineering Journal. You may download the paper and make copies to give to local professors and engineers (hint, hint). That’s one reason this particular journal was chosen — open access, free to download and make copies. What do Profs/Engineers say about it — let us know would you?
In this Letter, we emphasize “points of agreement” with FEMA and NIST, seeking to build bridges for further communications. Of course, we will send a copy to NIST for their comment and hopefully open a public discussion on these crucial evidences and analyses.…Continue reading

There is an increasing number of Americans who believe that George Bush, Dick
Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and several of their toadies should be in prison, this
writer included. But to suggest that the Bush administration is somehow involved
in the 9/11 attacks seems to be a jaw-dropping and frightening stretch, but
not to the scores of interested folks who turned out to hear David Ray Griffin’s
talk March 28 at the Poinsettia Pavilion in Ventura. For those who get their
information from Fox News, such a charge is blasphemy, treason and worthy of
a perpetual Blackwater firing squad on YouTube. Griffin settled for frequents
bursts of applause.
The 9/11 tragedy is certainly not the first event in American history surrounded
by controversy and conspiracy theories, just merely the latest.
But as the pages blow off the calendar, witnesses die off, the trail grows
cold and interest wanes, assisted by the fact the American people have the attention
span of a butterfly sneeze.
But 9/11 is still fresh in everyone’s memory, partly because Bush can’t go
three minutes without playing the fear card and invoking the images of airplanes
flying into tall buildings. That memorable Tuesday morning happened less than
seven years ago and not only is it an annual school assignment, but many of
the participants and survivors are still alive with plenty of contradictory
stories to tell.

Griffin has heard all of them. A retired theology and philosophy… Continue reading
McIlvaine lost his son, Bobby McIlvaine, Jr., on 9/11.
Mr. McIlvaine attended every 9/11 Commission hearing and has been a vocal critic
of the official account of 9/11. As a member of September
Eleventh Families for Peaceful Tomorrows, McIlvaine has traveled all over
the world speaking about 9/11, his perspective on the events of that day, and
demanding justice for his son and the other innocents who perished along with
An investigative journalist, author, and documentary film
maker, Hopsicker arrived in Florida two months after 9/11 to look into activities
of the alleged hijackers and their connection to Huffman Aviation. What he uncovered
became the basis for “Welcome to Terrorland: Mohamed Atta and the 9/11 Cover Up in Florida.” Hopsicker is still located in Florida and his up to date research can be found at http://www.madcowprod.com/.

Last Monday, March 31st, a historic event occurred. A conference call was held that involved a list of great American heroes, who have put everything on the line to protect their nation’s democracy. It was meaningful this occurred the same month as HBO’s release of John Adams.
A decision was made — April 16-22nd will be a WEEK of TRUTH !!
All are invited to get involved, by spreading the word on this event, as well as participating in the national “buy-in for truth week,” to finally break thru the corporate media blockade of 9/11 questions, at www.WeekofTruth.org
“. . . they [the majority of Americans] shall come to realize what I now realize… that the 9/11 Truth Movement are the real patriots in 21st century America!”
— Steve Alten, New York Times Best Selling author of “The Shell Game”
“Alone we can do so little . . . together . . . so much.”
— Helen Keller
This auspicious group came together to strategize how to collect the many powerful aspects of the growing movement pushing for answers to the endless unanswered questions around 9/11’s attacks, into one mass focused week of action. The goal . . . to break through the years of frustration with the (media) fourth estate’s betrayal of American democracy through their ongoing censoring of the questions regarding the increasingly obvious official myth of 9/11, which defies physics, logic, and FAA/DOD protocol.
As I sat in on this historic… Continue reading

David Ray Griffin on the 9/11 Truth Movement and Bush-Cheney’s “stupid” imperialism
By Matthew Singer
When David Ray Griffin conceived his first book regarding the events of Sept. 11, 2001, his interpretation of what transpired that day revolved around the concept of blowback, that the attacks were a byproduct of America’s decades of aggressive foreign policy toward the Middle East. In short, at the time, he bought the official story of 9/11. He wasn’t letting the United States government off the hook for their role in the attacks, but he wasn’t placing culpability where he would eventually place it: squarely on the shoulders of the Bush administration.
While researching for that first book, Griffin came across a growing community — concentrated mostly online — of people questioning the circumstances of Sept. 11 as reported by the mainstream media. Now, the retired professor, theologian and longtime Santa Barbara resident is one the leading voices of the so-called 9/11 Truth Movement, citizens who believe the horror of that day was not caused by radical Islamic terrorists but was orchestrated within the walls of the White House. Derided in the press as loony conspiracy theorists (if given any attention at all), the group, Griffin says, now includes intellectuals such as himself, as well as architects, engineers, pilots, former military officers and even ex-CIA operatives.
“The change in the movement has been rather drastic, because a few years back, people would dismiss us as a bunch of crazies on the Internet. And then… Continue reading
FROM NEW YORK CITY!
THE 9/11 BALLOT INITIATIVE CAMPAIGN
CALLING ALL 9/11 TRUTHERS! YOUR SUPPORT IS NOW NEEDED!
Fellow 9/11 truth workers, at long last there is a campaign afoot that has the potential of harnessing the energy, knowledge and zeal for justice of the entire 9/11 Truth Movement, and that is the New York City 911 Ballot Initiative Campaign. What is the 9/11 Ballot Initiative Campaign? Simply stated, it is a citizen-based effort to allow the people of New York City the opportunity to vote for “a New York City Independent Commission with Subpoena Power to Conduct a Comprehensive and Fact-Driven Investigation of All Relevant Aspects of the Tragic Events of September 11, 2001 and Issue a Report.”
Some of the folks spearheading this historic endeavor include commissioners William Pepper and Lorie Van Auken, spokespeople Christine Ebersole, Bill Doyle, Bob McIlvaine and Donna Marsh O’Connor, and the hard working activists of NY911truth.org. Other commissioners include Mike Gravel and Lincoln Chafee, Ed Asner, Bishop Thomas Gumbleton and Ralph Schoenman. The campaign has been endorsed by Dr. David Ray Griffin, William Rodriquez and Karen Kwiatkowski, among others, and has received enthusiastic support from Kyle Hence, Sander Hicks, Peter Lance and various stalwarts of the 9/11 Truth Movement throughout the country. Now, we need you to get involved!
As you know, a genuine, evidence driven investigation of the crimes of 9/11 has never taken place. Now, we have an unprecedented opportunity to make it happen. In order to place the… Continue reading
