Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura has seen some stuff that will blow your mind.
Or, at least that’s the tagline to “Conspiracy Theory,” his new show on US cable station TruTV. In episode two, the one-time wrestler and movie star goes after one of America’s greatest sacred cows: the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
It is, as far as this reporter can tell, the first time a syndicated program on U.S. cable has given a serious look at arguments made by members of the 9/11 truth movement.
In the show, Ventura speaks to key 9/11 truth figures such as former BYU professor Steven Jones and William Rodriguez, a nationally-acclaimed hero credited with saving dozens as he tried to escape from the World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11.
Ventura explores theories ranging from the missing black box recorders to the possibility that previously-planted explosives brought down the WTC towers.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology, which investigated the WTC tower collapses, maintains there was no recovered evidence of explosive materials. An electronic FAQ to the government’s theory is available online.
Almost without saying, the program leans heavily toward the conspiratorial-minded. Yet for many viewers, this may be their first exposure to such claims.
According to a TruTV press release, “Conspiracy Theory” hit the airwaves with the brunt of 1.6 million viewers, driving an 82% increase in the network’s viewership over 2008. In only its second week, “Conspiracy Theory” is TruTV’s most… Continue reading
Richard Gage Presentation on the Truth Behind the 9/11 Investigation
Images, Audio and Story By George McLellan
On the afternoon of Saturday the 21st in Wellington American architect and internationally acclaimed speaker Richard Gage addressed a captivated audience of around 630 people at Te Papa’s Soundings Theatre. Gage presented evidence calling into question the official version of the events which led to the destruction of the World Trade Center buildings in New York on the 11th of September 2001.
(This file can take a bit to buffer – give it a moment to load)
In the interview Gage spoke of the considerable similarity between the collapse of building seven of the world trade center and the demolition of similar buildings through controlled demolition – and he attempted to explain how and why this evidence calls for a better explanation.

This is something you have not yet seen in any US media. French independent media La Télé Libre interviews two of the most prominent 9/11 truth activists, Cynthia McKinney and Niels Harrit. To understand the context of the interview, you need to know what is happening in France right now, because 9/11 is surely becoming a hot topic.
A year ago, French comedian Jean-Marie Bigard publicly questioned the official 9/11 story on a popular TV show and said a new investigation is needed. That was enough for him to be called a revisionist by a myriad of journalists and he even received many death threats along the way. Nine months later, Bigard came back on the topic, but this time he went as far as creating 11 videos in which he uses humor to ask questions about disturbing elements of the 9/11 Commission report. He is invited on several TV shows to talk about this and each time he gets vilified by journalists.
Recently, actor and director Mathieu Kassovitz also questioned the foundations of the official version of 9/11 in another TV show. He got the same treatment from the French press.
Both Mathieu Kassovitz and Jean-Marie Bigard will debate this hot topic on France 2 this October 28th (we will post a video of this show as soon as we receive it). Originally, France 2 was supposed to air a debate including two other people who also question the official story: Éric Laurent… Continue reading

Former FBI agent Colleen Rowley discusses still unanswered questions about the lead up to 9/11. Coleen Rowley is a former FBI agent and whistleblower. Rowley jointly held the TIME “Person of the Year” award in 2002 with two other women credited as whistleblowers.
Within days of 9/11 happening I became convinced that something was very fishy about the whole thing. To be fair about it, I probably leaped to my conclusions somewhat prematurely, and I can well understand why many people have been skeptical regarding 9/11 skeptics. On the other hand, after eight years there’s now literally a mountain of evidence that the official story cannot possibly be true.
But where to start in deconstructing our received narrative? David Ray Griffin may well have found its Achilles heel in his latest book, The Mysterious Collapse of World Trade Center 7: Why the Final Official Report About 9/11 Is Unscientific and False. If you read this book with an open mind I hope that at the very least you’d be willing to support a new, non-partisan, scientific investigation into what happened.
It’s always great to talk with David — this is the third time I’ve had him as a guest on the podcast — and every time I learn a lot. It’s also worth mentioning, for those who don’t regularly follow 9/11 developments, that there’s steady, on-going progress in assembling the evidence for some kind of inside job. Year after year, more and more pieces of the puzzle are falling into place. Perhaps certain aspects of what happened may never be known, but unlike, say, the Kennedy assassination, here, an argument built of irrefutable facts, that doesn’t depend upon conjecture, stands up against anything the establishment can throw at it.
If you think… Continue reading
Yesterday afternoon, Justice Edward Lehner of the State Supreme Court rubberstamped Referee Louis Crespo’s recommendation that the decision to establish a local commission to investigate the events of September 11th not be put before the voters on November 3rd.
After showing interest in weighing both sides’ arguments in the hearing, the Judge’s short decision gives no indication of having considered the arguments put forth in the Petitioners’ memorandum of law, nor any acknowledgement of the need for a new investigation, which the City of New York callously dismissed as “irrelevant”.
On a dark day for democracy, the patriotic call for answers by hundreds of 9/11 families, first responders and survivors has been stifled, and the will of the people of New York City once again denied.
Judge Lehner ruled that modifying the petition to make it “legally permissible” would result in it being “inconsistent with the law sought by the signatories of the Petition” despite the fact that all 80,000 signatories agreed by signing the Petition that “If any provision of this law is held to be unconstitutional or invalid for any reason, the remaining provisions shall be in no manner affected thereby but shall remain in full force and effect.”

The deadline for inclusion on the ballot falls just before the election, making it possible to appeal Judge Lehner’s decision. NYC CAN is weighing all options and will make an announcement early next week on this issue, as well as on how it will be moving… Continue reading

UPDATE (at bottom): City’s law department tells RAW STORY that a new 9/11 investigation is ‘not a proper subject to be placed before the voters’ ‘
A lead actor from the popular FX television show “Rescue Me” joined a large group of 9/11 activists and survivors on Sunday in a march from New York City’s Battery Park to city hall.
During an afternoon rally in the park, Daniel Sunjata, who plays the role of Franco Rivera in the firefighter drama featuring actor Dennis Leary, took the stage with an impassioned call for a new investigation.
The march was held to support the NYC CAN coalition, which is currently engaged in a court battle with city hall over the legality of their ballot measure calling for a new 9/11 investigation.
The group has gathered over 80,000 signatures from New Yorkers in support of its ballot initiative, and even won a recent legal skirmish over a challenge to the validity if its petition’s signatures. The city’s challenge to the initiative’s legality continues, however, with a court referee recently advising the judge to find for the city.
An NYC CAN media advisory , which refers to the 9/11 Commission Report as a “disgrace,” notes that the group’s lawyers were to file a motion for reconsideration on Monday, Sept. 28.
“We have received, for our efforts, a slap in the face and a kick in the mouth,” said Sunjata, speaking at the NYC CAN rally on… Continue reading
This Week’s Upcoming Show
9/11 Revisited: The Enemy Within PART II
Air Date: 9/12/2009 10:00PM
The “Experts” are starting to say the 9/11 conspiracy wackos might be right and with the 8th Anniversary of September 11th fast approaching, many are still looking for the truth. Also the recent turn of events in the media with Van Jones has many asking why the media does not do their job. Tune in to find out more about the Truth Statement.
Show Guest Mike Berger, media coordinator for 911truth.org, has appeared on ABC World News Tonight, CNN Showbiz Tonight, and Scarborough Country as well as hundreds of radio appearances. It took Mike Berger nearly 18 months before he began to question the official 9/11 story, but when he read about the significant purchase of put options on companies directly affected by the events prior to 9/11 that implied foreknowledge of the attacks, he began to research. We invite you to join us in looking at the theories, as well as the new evidence that has surfaced … Don’t you want to know the truth too? Special 2 Hour Episode!
In 2006, Mike Berger founded Connect the Dots LLC., a video production company. Berger produced and directed his first documentary, Improbable Collapse: The Demolition of our Republic. In his most recent documentary, Life on the Edge of a Bubble: Blowing the American Dream, he teamed up with filmmaker William Lewis of Bridgestone Media Group to examine the financial… Continue reading
Truth was obviously censored and ncomplete in the original 9/11 Commission’s report. If anyone deserves the opportunity to press on for answers, it is the people of the City of New York. The next few weeks will tell whether they are at long last given that opportunity.
In the five years since the 9/11 Commission released its studious but timid report, Americans of all political stripes have advocated for a new investigation into the attacks of September 11, 2001. Since Obama seems intent upon putatively pardoning the Bush Administration for all of its crimes and misdemeanors, such an investigation will clearly not take place at the federal level. But a New-York based organization has been pursuing a local effort–and on the eve of the eighth anniversary of the attacks, it has achieved what could be an important step toward its goal. The New York City Coalition for Accountability Now (NYC CAN), which describes itself as “a group comprising 9/11 family members, first responders, and survivors,” has gathered signatures to place a referendum for a new 9/11 investigation on the November ballot in New York City.
The Bloomberg administration fought the effort by claiming that only about 26,000 of the 52,000 signatures submitted by NYC CAN were valid, leaving the group some 4,000 short of the requirement for a ballot measure. After the New York courts appointed a “referee” to review the tossed-out petitions, NYC CAN… Continue reading

There are many unanswered questions, and many people who won’t rest until they get the answers. During the first hour of tonight’s show, I’ll speak with two of them.
Manny Badillo lost his uncle in the World Trade Center on 9/11. Janette Mackinlay lived right across the street from the twin towers, and was in her apartment when the planes hit, and blew her windows out… and lots of debris in.
Both are now involved with the NYC Coalition for Accountability Now (http://www.nyccan.org/)– a non-partisan organization comprised of 9/11 families, survivors and concerned citizens committed to bringing about an independent, impartial investigation into the events of 9/11/01.

Good News for 9/11 Truth in the Austrian airwaves! Austrian national public
broadcasting TV station ORF (the equivalent to BBC or German ARD) will be showing
the premiere of the German version of "Zero – An Investigation into 9/11"
by the Italian member of EU parliament Giulietto Chiesa.
CLICK HERE for the website of Austrian ORF, showing all the info.
Time and date: Sunday, 06.September 2009 – 22:50 CET – the station is ORF2.
This is indeed good news of a decent amount of courage by journalists working
in a public broadcasting station. Unlike the BBC or German ARD, the Austrians
seem to have a bit more courage concerning that topic. It will be a German-dubbed version, which will be a TV premiere. The German title: "9/11 – WAS STECKT WIRKLICH
DAHINTER?" ("9/11 – What’s really behind it?").
German-speaking 9/11 truth activists should thank the journalists for their
courage. You can do that by sending feedback here: http://tv.orf.at/dok.film/

Tonight we welcome Dr. Frank Legge back to show for an extended discussion on one the most vexed questions about 9/11: what hit the Pentagon?
As Dr. Legge stresses, there are two essential points to note:
Many researchers are not satisfied with stopping at these reasonable claims however, and want to propose more detailed theories about what really happened. During the show we critically examine some of the theories, with the help of Dan Collins, a regular contributor to TNRA.
We present below several key pieces of evidence often cited in investigations of the Pentagon attacks.
Below we reproduce the Pentagon Building Performance Report image showing that “no portion of the outer two-thirds of the right wing and no portion of the outer one-third of the left wing actually entered the building”.
